"There Is No One"
They left the hotel by the service
elevutor and an obscure exit. Linda
had changed to a street dress while
the man waited outside her door.
There had been no excitement about
It though a house detective came and
hovered about uneasily, claiming the
wardrobe trunk with a sort of tri
umph. The two men whispered to
gether while she dressed and she could
hear scraps of their conversation
through the open transom. Such
things happen every day. they said.
It was n common occurrence for pev
p!e to "heal" hotels-nearly ulvvavs
they Were "good lookers," also. Hut
the law was making It pretty serious
the new laws-they couldn't set
away with It any more, ar.J the law
had no mercy !
Mercy! That was not strictly true.
The man who came for her had mercy.
He had allowed her to p down and
break ruthlessly with Hrian before
Hrian could ruin himself over tier. Sh
knew what would have happened If
Hrian had heard about her first 1 In
spite of her misery this thought sent
a little wave of warmth and happiness
over her. He would have been true.
When she came out of her room she
was white but entirely composed and
I'etective Jimmy O'llara was politely
thankful to her for not making a
It was a bad night, slippery with
light falling sleet, nnd taxis moved
like careful ghosts, feeling their way
along on clanking chains. Under a
street light the officer saw her waxen
profile outlined against the dark lin
ing of the cab.
"You're sure there ain't a gentle
man you'd nsk to see you through
this?" he muttered clumsily. He had
asked that question befure and she
had told him no. I'.ut he had known
women to take that stand cften de
clare utter frletidlessness when they
had an army of rich relations. Women
In trouble were a M like birds. they
fluttered nnd tried to fight off the
hand that was helping them. Con
trarlly lie persisted: "That young fel
low he'd 'a been glad to bark you up
If you hain't bawled Mm out so
That made her smile a queer twNl
ed lift of her drawn lip. "I 'id 1? Was
It really strong';" she questioned with
a curious childishness.
Hilicer Jimmy scratched Ms square
head. "If a dame ever talked thata
way to rr.e I'd have passed her up in
the frst five seconds." He ruminated:
"Hut he Lung on ike a bull pup. You
couldn't hardly shake him o!T."
Her head sank 'or.vard an I he heard
her sigh. This iiiTeeted him "trungcly

women like this one golddlggers, con
fidence moils, he should have no feel

nt her and found thai tier profile the
delicate outline he had marveled at
was now In shadow. She was a dull
blur In the corner of the ca!. but one
hand, bare a little above the wrist, lay
on the cushions between them, and in
the jond-gloom It looked dead white

"It's a bad night under the wheels.'
he said to try her out "I hope we
don't bump another car."
She did not answer though he knew
she heard and Ht that moment the car
did skid and her weight was thrown
against him. He grasped her baud to
She turned her head slightly and
spoke "You were very good to let me

hang around, lady, llstouin' to you an'
your sweetie, but I had to keep you
"Why-do you cull him that?"
His embarrassment grew; he hadn't
meant to use Just that word to her,
but there didn't seem to be any other.
"Well, anybody could see that he was
that you was Anyway, I had to
be there. I felt klnda foolish."
"I know. You have to watch people
who are arrested." She lore the
word from her throat, but Mice spoken
her head went up. "It wus your
It made them both feel better. "I
wish you'd let your friends know
about this," O'llara persisted. "Ex
cuse me, ma'um, but I don't think you
know how to manage a business like
this. Tin re's got to be somebody"
"There Is no one," she Interrupted
with a touch of Impatience.
He was perplexed. He had the
warrant In his pocket. She was
chnrged with defrauding hotels some
of the big ones In Chicago and New
York a lldy sum, too more than a
good man could eurn In a year. Ho
had been rather proud of the order to
bring her In he'd always hated a
client worse than any sort of law
breaker. And then It was an assign
ment sure to curry publicity and front
page pictures, and a policeman likes
publicity as well as any man. Hut
now he wasn't proud. lie wanted to
find a way out for her and she claimed
there wasn't any.
Hut she had said something that
gave him a chnneo to speak to her
ngnln without sacrificing his dignity,
"A man has to do a lot of things for
duty when maybe he wouldn't
wouldn't" He stammered to full
Hut she was the kind that under
"That Is true," she said sweetly.
She seemed to have no hurd feeling
against him at all. Then she added
thoughtfully: "And If you haven't
been exactly honest with yourself, duty
Is all the harder when It does come.
If you've lied and pretended, It's ter
ribly hard to tear It down"
He nodded. Anybody knew that It
was harder to take back lie than to
I.lnda was not suffering any more.
AH the pain that had wrapped her like
a dull tlame had somehow settled to
Inertia that mercifully stilled active
thought. It did not matter what hap
pened now. The scene with Rrlun
ended everything as If a sharp knife
had severed a cord that hound her to
all those people and made her one of
There would be a tremendous scan

up, but she could not see what differ
ence that would make now. They
would talk about It forever nnd tie
disgrace she had brought upon them
all. And how foolish It would be, for.
of course, everything was over for her
now. And then she saw herself. I.lnda

others-the pauoler, with her head
high and her skirts trailing In the
gutter mud. The despised woman who
hid her eyes like an otrlch and look

Hands: Suddenly she held them out.
"What will they do?" she whis
pered. He was slow about answering. 1 1
knew at once what she was thinking
of. but It was not easy to answer her.
"Lol I'm afraid It's Jail nia'am."
And what Is Jill? What happens In
Jail? What happens to a delicate
woman with silken wrists nnd ankles
. . . who has only known the soft
est sheets; the whitest bread? What
happens to her In Jail?

more. There was. It was a serions
charge. Ollara knew the law. The
law could send an embezzler to Sinf,
Sing easy enough ; or maybe to the
N'aiid, whh h was worse.
"Sing Sing." she repeated this
vaguely. It sounded heathenish and a
linle silly, but oddly familiar. And
nli. three or four years! Of what?
lieiectlve Jimmy drew a long breath,
lie had tried to make her understand
as well ns he could, but he had not
told her the half. Of course, It could
never happen to her. A woman like :
that would have dozens of friends ;
but In spite of this assumption he
moved uneasily, lie had seen It hap- j
pen. He had seen them, young and .
pretty, with the Innocence hardly j
brushed from their eyes, and no '
friends! Nothing to be cnlled friend. !
There were so mmy women. They '
sprang up like daisies everywhere and j
if one was trampl.'d there was nlways j
another for its place . . . i Elec
tive Jimmy was no poet and he was a
little ashamed of these fancies that
came now and then and which be
never recounted to anyone.

Varying Opinion as to
"Bookt All Should Have"
There Is a house In Chelsea which
bears the Intriguing sign, "The House
of the Nine Hooks." The nine books
are those which, In the occupiers'
opinion, ought to be In every home.
They are the I'lble, Plato's "He
public," Homer, Horace, "The Ara
bian Nights," Dante's "Divine Com
edy," "Don Quixote," Shakespeare, and
Grimms "Fairy Tales."
This Is nn Interesting list, but how
many people will ngree with It? Many
of us would like to substitute Milton
for Horace; nnd If Grimm Is Included
for the children's benefit, wouldn't
Hans Christian Anderson be a better
Hut no two people would make out
the same list. What would you say
were the nine books that ought to he
In every home? Write them down
nnd usk your friends to do the same,
and you will be amazed, both at the
vnrlety of the titles, and also nt the
way In which some of them occur In
every, or almost every, list. London

The first familiar feature of Hrartl
that the air traveler sees Is the Amu
ion. At tti mouth the big river, 1M
tulles wide between Its rapes, colors
the sea snd dilutes Its salt for N
miles offshore. Men In small fishing
boats, venturing out of sight of land,
figure how far out they are by tast
ing the water.
The rise of the river near I'ara In
flood times Is often M feet. Then vast
areas of forest are completely Inun
dated. Snow In the Andes begins to
melt In August, but this delta dors
not feel the rise till sit months later.
With a valley covering 'J.T'J'J.O'Ki
square miles, and containing about
nilles of navigable water com
munlcations. It Is easy to see why It
takes the Mg river six months to rise
snd six months to fall. Also, the
! f the vast valley from the foot
or the Andes to the Atlantic Is onlv
about 20 feet. This Is why tide from
the sea are felt up the Amazon for
floO miles. Sometimes three or four
tides are riding the river nt once,
like big waves far apart.
Looking at maps, one observes the
Amazon delta docs not run out to sea
on land bridges, as do the Nile, the
Ganges and the Mississippi. It car
rles prodigious onds of mud, and go
ologists sny Its delta oi e extended
3"K) miles pasj Its pre, cut mouths.
Hut now the ocean Is rapidly eating
into the continent. And from the air
you see how this goes on. Hy an odd
freak of nature, the sea Is driving In
land huue waves of white fand. These
big dunes In many places have bur
led the trees. I'.lsewhere you can see
dead trees, once covered with sand
and killed, and then exposed again to
the advancing sea wave washing
them out by the roots.
Rush of the Amazon Bore.
And the I'ara, or south coast, of the
delta, you notice, Is higher and drier
than the const of Brazilian Guiana,
north of the Amazon delta. Around
Maraca Island and the mouth of the
Araguary river the famous Amazon
bore Is at Its best. When It rum In

speed Is ten to fifteen knots an hour,

Look down on all these mud banks,
rip tides and shallows, and you see
why skippers dread navigation In
these waters. Changes In coast out
lines are constant; shoals nnd flats
form only to he washed away. Mud
banks which a few years ago barely
; showed above the sea are now cov
( ered with trees. Had lights nnd buoys,
lack of good charts, ever shifting cur-
rents bring many ships to grief.
I Even the many small native trad
1 lug boats, their cabins thatched over
nnd their sails made of blue cotton
: cloth, have their own troubles here
with wind, tide, and mud.
San Luis from tiie air Is a com
i pact, red-roofed town of many patios
and narrow streets. It was first a
fort built by the French and named
after Louis XIII. The town Is on nn
' Island, and a railway connects It with
1 the mainland. It Is a thriving place.
' You see new buildings going up nlong-
side wonderful old houses with fronts

' Scenes Along the Coast.
J At the mouth of the Amazon and
north of It Hrazil Is very damp. Hut
once you quit the Amazon delta, and
get well on your way down the slop
ing coast toward the great shoulder
of northeast Hrazli, like magic the
soaking Jungles and mud flats chunge
to a parched and sunburnt land, with
mile-long sand dunes bare and for
lorn as the shores of Suez. If you
placed a few camels under the lonely
clumps of coconut trees which you
see being smothered by sand dunes
often 00 feet high you would get as
good a desert picture as any from
Bagdad to Cairo.
