When her job had started In the Douse of Quackenbush, and she was hating Yvonne's apartment in Greenwich Village, she thought it would be best to let him knew her home address, and change of nam. After all, he was her nearest living relative. They had never understood each other, but lie had been gruffly kind to her in her misfortune. She would trnst him. It was but right that he know how things were going with her, and she could rely on him to keep her occupation, address and new nam a profound secret. It was necessary to keep in touch with the Colonel, so that she might get news of her husband, disturbing as that would Inevitably be. Not until the trial in San Francisco waa over would she know any real security. She had been with Yvonne a week when she received a letter from the Colonel, addressed to Luana Waters. It hurt her to see his handwriting, he who had been so proud, and who must now address her in an assumed name. That was part of her humiliation. "My dear Elizabeth," ran the letter, "It is good to know that you have found employment, although I could have wished something of a more intellectual and less frivolous character for you. It is naturally a shock to me to learn that you have changed a family name which has always been held In high esteem in our community. But, in the circumstances, it is no doubt for the best. "I have just come from the office of the district attorney, who fortunately for us informs me that the person who has brought such disgrace on us, already has a wife residing in a suburb of Chicago. Therefore his marriage to yon is illegal, and I am taking the necessary stepB to annul it- I am hoping to be able to have this done as quietly as may be, thereby avoiding any further unfortunate publicity.
