CLEAR LAKE —Between 50 and SO baskets of food went out to needy families in Clear Lake this week through the co-operation of clubs, lodges, churches and other organizations of the city. Many donations received at the Lake theater last Saturday morning were sorted and arranged on , shelves at the Dr. A. B. Phillips basement ready for the clubs and others to come and take what was needed. Baskets sent out contained canned fruit and vegetables, s'.aple groceries, fresh fruit, clothing and some toys.

The room seemed strangely familiar, and he gradually recalled the appearance of the place. Then full recollection came back and he knew he was in his cottage. It all seemed strange. He tried to move and a deadly pain shot through him, causing him to give a gasp. The man at the table turned, and Reid recognized dimly, as in a dream, the face of Selden. He wanted to laugh, it was EO funny. Selden came and knelt by his side. "Thank goodness! You've had a close call; you must be made of iron."

I've bound you up as well as I can, having' taken the liberty of tearing one of your sheets into strips; I've had experience in first aid. Lie still now. You'll have to have a p.voper doc- Selden followed the track through the woods, partly for the shelter it afforded, and because he knew this would bring him out of the lake side. Once there he followed the edge till he stood exactly opposite the place indicated by Reid. The light still burnt steadily in the window, calmly and reassuringly. !

He moved his arm stiffly and it caused excruciating pain, but ther.j wen: no bones broken, thank goodness,. He was lying wrapped in a blanket and his tattered clothes, bloodstained and saturated, lay in 5 heap on the floor. Suddenly he sat up and seized Selden's arm. "Man, 1 can't stay here—the light—I must go!" "That's all right." Selden spoke soothingly as to a child. "You don't understand—I'm not raving. Sylvia — Miss Lawrence put a light in her window, and that was the sign that danger threatened. I must ?;o.'' Selden smiled. "Not like that. But are you serious?" "Deadly so. I was detained at the Colonel's house and escaped, but the devil set his hounds on me," "I thought as much," Selden said quietly, bu* his fare was grimly set. "That will have to ' wait, like other things; but tell me about the light." In rapid words Reid sketched the situation, and Selden's quick brain needed no help. His face was grave. "I saw the light, but could not guess the meaning, of course. You can't possibly move from here. Why, those brutes have bitten you air most to the bone in your arm and leg." Reid made an effort to rise, but Clear Lake Briefs All Clear Lake service stations will be closed Christmas day 12 noon till 6 p. m.

He swam steadily across and reached the dark walls of the Abbey that rose • straight, and grim from the water. Feeling his way carefully he came to the cellar window and removed the bars. Reid's directions had been plain, and Selden was quick in taking instructions. He emerged, dripping, into the corridor. Everything was absolutely quiet, and he wondered whether either Reid or Sylvia had gone wrong about the signal He stole up the stairs, but the groaning of the old place and the fierceness of the storm drowned any slight sounds, and he found himself outside the door that Reid had told Jiim was Sylvia's sitting room, to which she had moved with the children. He opened the door softly and looked in. An electric reading lamp had been moved to the sill of one of the windows, and the light shone out over the lake. The window curtain had been pulled back over the light, and the room was in partial darkness, but there was sufficient to show that nothing had been (disturbed. It was neat and orderly as Sylvia had left it when she had tidied up after the turbulent twins, had gone to bed. Selden breathed a sigh of relief. Sylvia's bedroom, he knew, opened on one side, and the children's on the other, the whole suite having in the old days been reserved for special visitors. Selden felt that his position was equivocal. It would have been in order for Reid to have come, after having agreed to do so, but he, Selden, had no status in the house, and theer might be some difficulty in explaining his presence. It was, to say the least, unprofessional. But things had gone too far for hesitation, and he hoped that Syl- DIES OF INJURIES AFTER ACCIDENT Thompson ManV Car Hits Bridge, Railing Penetrates Auto.

"Perhaps," Selden said slowly "I know more than you think Reid, tell me as a friend, not as a detective. I promise to respec' your confidence." In spite of the tight grip Reid was holding over himself,' some- thig like a sob escaped him. "You're a white man, Selden," he gasped. "You're very weak, old fellow. Lie still while I'm gone, and I will leave you my automatic—no, you must have it," he urged as the other made a gesture of protest. "I shall manage."

"I don't like leaving you, but this matter must be investigated. I can't understand the light burning all this time. It seems to indicate that Miss Lawrence, though perhaps in danger, has not been more than that." "Find out—that's a good fellow," 'Reid said urgently. 'I'll go at once." "I won't keep you, but tell me one thing—I shall only worry— how did you come back from London at that very time—in the nick of time for me?" Selden laughed- "It's a long story. I will tell you tomorrow but I will leave you with this: 1 have never left the village at all except to go to London to get some clothes." "Good lord!" "No more now." Selden said laughing. "Lock the door behind me if you can, and I've left the flask if you feel faint" He closed the door behind him and went out into the storm.
