Susie Cunningham bad been sick
more sick at heart than anything else
but so sick that she hadn't been
able to work for days. Now she was
slowly recovering, though there was
a sad, wistful look In her eyes that
hadn't been there before her Illness
and a dull ache at her heart that
seemed as though It would never leave
The trouble was that young John
Hammond, the cashier In the office
where she had been employed and to
whom she had been engaged, had
disappeared, his accounts had been
short and there had been but a brief
word of explanation to Susie for his
conduct It was this brief word which
had brought on Susie's Illness.
The only message from John since
I his disappearance had come to her on
a postal card on the day after he
failed to come to work. It had been
mailed from a nearby town and It
bore these words In John's unmistak
able handwriting:
"Dear Susie : I've treated you pretty
roughly. Please forgive me. I was
married here today. Forget me. John."
Of course Susie hadn't believed that
John was a thief she didn't yet even
these many weeks after his disappear
ance when the shortage still stood un
explained against his record. It was
not because of the charge of theft
against John that her illness came, It
was because of those words on the
postcard. "I was married here today."
She had loved him so deeply, de
votedly, whole-heartedly. There bad
never been any man In her life save
John. Everything bad looked so rosy
for them too. The little bungalow In
which they were to have lived was
nearing completion and they were just
In the midst of happily buying furni
ture for It when the blow fell
No wonder there was a wistful look
In Susie's eyes, and a droop to her
young lips, and an unfading ache in
her heart
Small wonder, too, that now, two
weeks after John's disappearance, as
Susie was getting her normal strength
back, there-should he a deep and abid
ing curiosity in her soul.
Who was It that John had married?
It was because this curiosity de
manded an immediate answer1 that
Susie, as soon as she was able, went to
the neighboring town of Brampton,
where the fatal postal card had been
mailed, and bravely mounted the steps
In the courthouse to the office of the
county clerk.
T want to look at the marriage
license book, please," she said to the
The clerk, looking at her curiously,
shoved a big book across the counter
to her.
Susie covertly referred again to the
postal card to make sure she had the
right date when it was mailed In mind.
Then quickly she thumbed through the
pages until the proper date was found
and then went over the licenses Issued
on that day, one by one.
When, some moments later, Susie
left the courthouse there was a new
light In her eyes and new resolution in
her step. Her curiosity was satisfied.
but In satisfying her curiosity she had
found something that she must do a
task which she must put through as
quickly as possible.
In furtherance of this task she did
seme telephoning to several different
people at a public booth. Then, late
In the afternoon, she boarded the train
for home.
In the train she examined her postal
card from John with new Interest She
held It to the light ; she viewed It from
different angles, all with a new pur
pose In mind.
At last as she caught the light on
the card from a new angle, she gave a
little gasp. She had discovered some
thing something very much worth
Susie returned to work the next day,
Of course there were many expres
sions of sympathy from fellow em
ployees and from the executives, for
her story had become known In the
office on the day when she bad re
ceived the postal. (Susie had promptly
fainted upon receiving It and the card
had then been read by the others In
the office.)
But now Susie showed little of the
effects of her Illness.
At the noon hour she ate lunch
with one of her firm friends, Anna
"What's new at the office, Anna?"
Susie asked. "What are they doing
about John? Who's doing bis work?"
"They've been trying to trace John
everywhere, but haven't got a slngl
hint where he Is," said Anna. "Otto
Duemllng Is doing bis work."
Duemllng had been John's assistant
before John's disappearance, and upon
returning to the office Susie viewed
Otto with great Interest Never before
had she paid much attention to him,
but now she looked at him carefully
and thoughtfully.
She saw In Deumllng a sleek young
man of not very prepossessing appear
ance and no outstanding character
istics. There was nothing about him
that marked his personality. He was
self-effacing, very evidently efficient
and not very much Inclined to bob-
Bob or chat with the other employees.
All the afternoon Susie was busily
thinking of the task she bad set for
herself. There was a certain definite
something she most do that night
something which rather made her
shiver as she contemplated it
And it was to enable her to do this
definite something that Susie, before
leaving the office that afternoon, slyly
unfastened one of the ground floor'
It was 1 o'clock that night before
Susie felt the time was propitious for
doing this thing she had decided must
be done. At that hour the night was
pitch dark there was no moon and
the town was almost wholly silent
Through the night Susie stole to the
window she had unfastened. Softly
she raised this window and crept Into
the dark office, her heart beating furi
ously and only ber determination to
go through with the task she had set
herself enabling her to push onward.
In the office she made ber way past
the furniture to the desk which bad
been John's.
There was a certain locked drawer
in this desk she wanted to investigate.
A bandy, heavy envelope opener
enabled ber to pry the drawer open.
Greedily she caught up the papers In
the drawer and took them to an inner
room, where she cautiously turned on
A tremulous sigh of satisfaction
came from her as she examined the
I thought so," she exclaimed to
herself. "I thought sol"
But hark, what was that?
Some one was stealthily opening the
side door Into the office.
Susie switched oft the light Fear
clutched at her soul. What If she
should be discovered?
She heard the sound of voices and
finally made out that the Intruders
were a man and a woman.
She heard them move to the far end
of the room, where the vault was lo
cated. Peering through the door she
saw tie flash of a light then heard
the sound of a clicking. The door
of the safe was being opened.
Susie, taking all her determination
and courage In hand, crept from her
hiding place into the larger room find
down the darkened aisles toward the
little partitioned space where the huge
vault was located. j
As she came nearer she saw that the
door of the vault was open. She crept
to one side and looked into the vault
By a candlelight held In the hand of
man she saw that with his com
panion, a woman, he was opening the
drawers at the back or tne vault
where the firm's money was kept.
She beard the two talking distinctly.
The woman spoke first
"It sure was lucky for you that
Hammond had to leave so suddenly,"
said the woman.
"Sure was," said the man. "It was
a great chance chance of a lifetime.
Trust me to grab it I've been afraid
his old mother out West would croak
before this and he'd come back before
I could get enough money In this vault
to make It worth while to take It"
Well," said the woman, with a
short laugh, "the stuff you've already
taken and charged op to Hammond
Isn't so bad, yon know."
"Not so bad," said the man. "That

was a nappy tnougni iorging mi
postal and sending It to Hammond's
girl that put the final touch of truth
to the thing."
A wild rage surged in Susie.' She
leaped at the vault door, banged It
shut and whirled the combination)
Some days later Susie was safe In
John's arms.
"That was an outrageously clever
forgery." John cried, looking at tne
nostal which had caused Susie so
much pata. "Otto Intercepted the let
ter I sent to you telling about my
mother's sickness and traced words
from that letter onto the postal. Later
he Inked them la It waa Just his

John, "is how yon got started on find
