When he had calmed himself, he said: "We^llMjr no more about Bruce. I hare the two greatest griefs to bear that can come to a man—my wife rand my son are dead." He was almost weeping. T7EAR foK film; ln ; his present r highly emotional state, tied the girl's tongue. It BfBmed foolish to try to convlnc* him' by the usual platitudes, thiff this violent repercussion was only natural, that a little familiarity between father and son would smooth away the sharp edges of their differences, bring them back together again. She. forsook the subject of Bruce for the time being. "Very well," she said quietly. "It you're sure you want to do that. You've always been kind to me, but this seems—too much, somehow. I've, never done anything to deserve so much. I've no right to it, really. If you change your mind—" "it's all settled. And it ain't so much. Not half of what people think," he flashed warily. "And time the taxes are paid and all, you won't be so rich you'll bend your back carrying it" This was pure swank, Mary knew, but she let him say it If it pleased him to belittle hls N wealth, it was a pleasure he could afford. "I ask only one thing," sbe said soberly. JI That nothing be said about It Just yet. No one must know." He was obviously disappointed but he agreed, grudgingly. It would have been infinitely soothing to tbat long-festtving wound to his pride and bis affections which bis son's way of life had dealt him to let the world know that Bruce was to be punished. In his own peculiar self-sufficiency, Bruce had always evaded him. This was tbe only way tbe father could hurt him. Mary knew tbat Mr. Jupiter was heartsick over the open break with Bruce from the listless tone with which he spoke of his yacht, for the "Gypsy" was the dearest toy he owned. Tve got- Hendricko," he said, "and he won't take on anybody I wouldn't Good man. Good navl gator, good pilot. And a damn good mechanic. Don't often find that in a seagoing man. We'll get away tbe first of the week." Go away from New 7ork, leave Dirk—? Mary's heart cried out that she couldn't, no matter' bow unfairly he bad behaved toward her. "You make up a party," the old man persisted, with forced cheerfulness. "Ask anybody you like. We've got cabins for 15. Maybe Steve Ruyther and bis wife can get away; do him good. Shut you up a few weeks with tbat wife of bis and maybe you'll decide you don't want to get married, eh?" He squinted at her, in a feeble attempt at ooJBor, "Maybe I won't—get married, anyway," Mary said. "Well, plenty of time. You're young. Little absence won't do any harm. You get ready and we'll stop cS In Miami and see some other young folks—" Mianil Mary's indifference vanished. She sat up, electrified by the thought that came to her. Miami wat. Florida, and Hialeah must be somewhere about Tbe Fly would be at Hiateah! can we start?" sbe asked *Wi« we b« in Mi»mi fry pu**l*d h» ww pteawd to m la "perking "I' reckon . ; so," he' answered. "Why? Somebody down there you want to see2" She laughed excitedly. "I should say so! -How long will we stay?" "Wbj? r long as you like, two- three -reeks, I suppose. Danged if I'll open the house, though. Always hated the thing—looks like an oil station. No vacation for me—go all the way to Miami and live in an oil station! . We!E lire on the •Gypsy'."- ""'r^.' ' *•.*•• H E was avoiding'"tB* palatial Spanish "cottage" which had been Mrs. Jupiter's favorite among her various homes because her memory was t$o vivid there,- Mary knew. But she did not care; the "Gypsy" suited her purposes even better. A plan of almost diabolical cunning had occurred to her! As she rapidly thought out its details, she knew that she must speak to Mr. Jupiter about it now, tor certain preparations would have to be made beforehand, to insure safety all round—for herself, for the necklace when it was in her possession, and possibly for the old man himself. She might take chances herself but she would never' again take chances on behalf of anyone else— the loud of responsibility sho al ready bore was heavy enough. At her earnest request, they left the almost untouched meal and adjourned to the library, safe from the avid ears of the servants. There, as clearly as she could, Mary set forth the facts she and Bowen had gathered about The Ply. It was not a conclusive show of evidence, but it was strong. It needed a final link to make It Impregnable —that final link could only be The Fly's confession. There was still the chance—she did not admit it, but It was there— that though it bad been the Fly's gun with which Mrs. Jupiter was shot, Eddie's hand had flred it. If that were true, she wanted to know It, but she did not want other people to know it if it could be helped. So they must do without the police For notoriety followed when one dealt with tbe police—sbe bad found tbat out. And in tbat one respect, at least, sbe meant to respect Dirk's wfsbes. His name would always be coupled with hers since the official announcement of their engagement, even if—her mind refused to follow up tbat painful "if." She would not drag him into this if sbe could possibly avoid it. All this she had to make clear to Mr. Jupiter, aa well as her plan to capture tbe Fly, When sbe had finished, he asked: "You sure he'll be there?" "It's almost a certainty, Bowen thinks. His horse races at Hialeah on the 16th. He'll show up, all right—he doesn't take tbe law seriously, you know. He's been arrested many times, but they've bad to let him go. He's careful. Bowen says he's tbe smartest crook un- hung. Maybe that's why they call him Tbe Fly, He's so bard to swat." Jupiter grunted. "It tbe police can't swat him, bow do you expect to?" *By avoiding their methods, and using my own! He can't b» taken in an open chase, that's been tried too many times. Very well. We'll emulate 9 spider, spread our web wait toy him! He'll come, Tbe tece will bring him. He is tbe pnjy <jn« »bo knows tb« truth atwut must b» mao> to TTE was silent a lone time. •*"'• could not read his thoughts. ,' Everything hung on his answer— she almost prayed. "If I thought you two youngsters were right — that tbat man was the one— I'd never rest, while h« was above ground! Every cent .I've got would go to see him hung!" Spots of red burned in the bloodless cheeks; Mary had not seem him. sd galvanized with life- «*ac* the ttnt few hopeful days • of the polled search for his wife'i murderer. Th« thirst for revenge gave him an unexpected zest in life.- It might be a better thing for him, in the end, than the coddling Dr. Jordan had enforced on him. Jupiter slapped the arms of bis chair. "If you were a boy, now 1 — but a girl like you — what will people think it I let you walk up to that crook with a fortune hanging around your neck? No, sir, I can't let you do- a crazy thing like that, Mary—" "Then/ 1 Mary said quietly, "under the terms of your wife's will, I will choose the necklace. Although it really doesn't matter now: whether I actually have tbe necklace in my possession or not — Tbe Fly thinks I have. Those stories will have told him that and be saw me wearing it. It's too late now to back out" As soon as be thinks it safe again, he'll be making another try for it And all the papers say you've given the necklace to me. I'm in danger now, and I always will be, while be's at large. For my own safety, the best thing I can do is bring him to justice as quickly as possible. As for seeking him out, I'll be far safer knowing his movements than I'll ever be with him at large . . . you see tbat, don't you?" Jupiter scratched an ear. "That's mighty near the truth," be admitted. "It may take a little-time," Mary. continued, "but it can be done. Don't you mind me! I shan't be frightened. I wasn't frightened before when I saw him in Shay's— I was thrilled as any school girl, and glad. I can't tell you bow glad! I thought it wouldn't be long until— but be got away. We'll bave to wait a while— flush him again, as Bowen calls It, but we'll get him, I don't want them just to send him to Jail — I want them to bang him!, I do!" Her own vehemence surprised her, but she knew It was true — tbat these unbecoming, bloodthirsty sentiments were truly hers. She turned on him, demanding defiantly, "Does it sound awful? I mean it. I never knew I could hate anyone as much as I hate tbat man!" She walked about, ber eyes stormy, ber face flushed, But Jupiter was not looking at her. He was seeing visions of bis own in tbe pattern of the rug, bis band clenching and unclenching on tbe crook of his cane. He held it at arms length, like a weapon, and banged the floor with it. "If be's the man," ha said, "I'll sea him bung if I have to put every, cent I've got behind it. By god, I'd like to tend to it myself! If you can toll him on board tbe "I can. I can trick him. I know I can!" Her throat was tight with exultation, and resolution. The dp" behind them opened. Mary whirled about.

Judge Halts lllmotsMilkWar Terrorism and Violence Cease Put Week in Face of Injunction SPRINGFIELD, . Illinois' twtf-months milk war, rephta with stuggltigs, deitnutfon of proptrty and terrorism in general, appeared Sunday (tight to have been ended by intervention of the United States gov erflment. The cauirt! ot the disputes-friction between an aMMatitm ot dairy farm- era and a St. Louis milk company- remains unsettled, but county and state authorities said they believed that actual war-fare has been stopped, To Federal Judge Louis Fitzhenry was given considerable credit for halting the actual rioting. He issued a permanent injunction restraining the farmers and milk truck drivers from further violence 1 ; The disorders started last August shortly after the Pevely Milk Company opened negotiations for a new contract under which the Sanitary Milk Producers AsMcation with' a membership of abAud 7,500 dairy farm ers In Illinois, Missouri and l«Jwa, was to furnish the PeVeFy,Company with milk. . : The fawners objected to the contract, charging that it gave the distributing company the right to fix prices at Which milk was to be sold. The Pevely company replied with a charge that the. milk' producers were attempting, to gain control of the St. Louis milk-market and force the company to" buy from, association members. Negotiations to settle the dispute came to nothing. Then began the period of terrorism. Masked men stopped trucks carrying milk to St. Louis, beat the drivers Into unconsciousness, and spilled thousands of gallons of milk on the highways. In some cases trucks were- burned ot- driven, into ditches. Ont driver was shot and scores were beaten. Several barns on dairy farms mysteriously were burned'. More than 100 farmers were arrested in the three Illinois counties where the trouble centered. ., It was not until last week when the federal government—through Judge Fitzhenry'—entered the case in earnest and the disorders ceased! There has been no violence since that time. If the quiet does not continue it has been indicated that martial: law may be the ultimate solution. " ..
