Miss Pearl Waite, 16, and
Ernest Miller, 18, of Kearney,
Neb'., were lovers, and planned to
be married in, spite of family ob
jections. Renewed opposition to
their marriage is believed to be
responsible for a "suicide pact,"
as a result of which their bodies
were found in a ravine near Kear

the girl and then turned the gun

enough of thes at Keene to serve

Whereupon, convinced that the
ptrahger, would be a valuable ac
quisition to the village, the kind-
hearted tavrn-keeper turned over
the keys and withdrew.

and putting a few things In order.

They drove on toward the local
metropolis, where they purposed
doing some shopping, but had
gone only a short distance when
they heard an efrgine of a heavy
.car whining as it came up a grade
'ahead, and Piggy drew aside to
let it pass.
He had a fleeting glimpse of a
gray-clad chauffeur behind the
wheel, and in the tonneau a big,
broad shouldered man whose cap
was pulled low over his brow,
leaving only his beaky nose, stub
by dark mustache, and heavy, jaw.
As the car tore past them this
man turned, eying them sharply,
and Piggy thought he looked a
good deal like a bulldog -ge tting
ready to spring. A second later
he had disappeared around a'
curve in the road.
. "Peter!" Roberta gasped, be
hind her veil. "Peter! That was
my father! He's found out!"
"Ho-lee smoke' said Piggy.
We've j;ot to hump ourselves. "
. Arrived at last at the scene of
action, which 4s 'carefully guarded,
Roberta and Piggy investigate.
"Without warning Roberta's father
speeds into the situation; obvious

been reported to him.. He, for
tunately, does not recognise them.
Meanwhile, events , necessarily
beyond the ken of Roberta and
Piggy had taken place in New
York, and her father's presence In
New Hampshire was due less to
the omniscience with which she
was at first inclined to credit him
than to one of the qualities mak
ing him a successful business man.
He was a good guesser, and, hav

policy to arrive there first, if pos

Fonr days before Piggy was sent
to meet Roberta at the station;
while Scott's mind .was chiefly en
gaged with business, a friend from

"Probably that's the reason' her

the Montreal man, who knew
nothing about the family breach.
"What's that?" Scott's tone was
"Am I giving away a secret?
Perhaps she meant to surprise
"Perhaps she did. It's a way
she has.. What makes you think
she's coming back?"
"I saw her in the steamship of
fice buying a ticket the day before
I sailed. I came on the last ship

ask for a cabin on the next one.'
"Sure it was Roberta?"
"Why thought so. I never;
