THE ALTOONA MIRROR—FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1929 MAN FROM MOROCCO *r\* ! (Continued From Page 20) He had Indeed a very excellent purpose to serve. His Moorish "wife" had been brought post haste to the houae in the hills that Joan might see her, and, seeing her, understand. The subtle mind of Ralph Hamon was never better illustrated than in this act of his. He went back to Sad! Hafiz. "I'm going to see my lady," he said, "and afterward I will bring you in." He ta.pped at the door of the draw- iVig room, and as there was no answer, he turned the handle and walked In. _-.^4n was on a music-stool before the grand piano, her hands folded on her lap. All the evening she had been trying to work up an inclination to play, and she had at last brought herself to the piano when Hamon made his appearance. "Are you comfortable?" he asked. She did not reply. He stood for a while, adorning the straight figure and the calm, imperturbable face. A lesser breed would have shown the hatred and loathing she felt, but not a line of her face Changed, and he might have been a servant of Creith who had come at her summons,' so unmoved and unemotional was her reception. "It is a beautiful place, eh? One of the loveliest in Morocco," he went on. "A girl could be happy here for a year or two. Have you seen Number One?" He eat down, uninvited, and lit a cigar. "By Number One, I presume you mean Mrs. Hamon?" He : nodded. She had never seen Ralph Hamon look quite so cheerful as he did at that moment. It was as though all the trouble in the world had rolled away from him and left him care-free and buoyant at heart. \ "When I say 'rst, 1 " said Joan care- fijllly^ "I, of course, expose my ignoi 1 - tipce.ot Moorish customs. At any rate, she is the first I have seen." "And the last you'll see, Joan," 1 he said with a laugh. "Marriages, they say, are made in heaven. Pleasant alliances can bo made in Morocco, but Number One, first, last and all tho time,- will be Lady Joan Hamon." A sadow of a smile came and went. "It sounds beastly, doesn't it? she said frankly. She had a trick of irritating him more than any other human being. She could get under his chin and drag on the raw places. For a second his eyes blazed, and then, swallowing his rage, he forced a laugh. Secretly he admitted her cool insolence, and would gladly have imitated her if it were possible. "It may sound bad, but it is a good enoughname for me," he said. 'Is that a. Moorish custom too?" she Asked coolly. "That ft girl takes the name of the man who abducts her? You must instruct me in the Moorish marriage laws; I'm afraid I'm totally ignorant on the subject." He crossed to where she was sitting, pulling his chair — "'1 him. "Now listen, Joan,'! he said quietly. The-re is to'be no Moorish marriage. There Is to be an honcst-to-God marriage, conducted by a fully ordained minister of the Episcopalian church, with wedding ring and the usual parj- phernalia. I asked you Just now, had you seen my Moorish wife, and I guess you have. What do you think of her?'' Joan did not speak. She was trying to discover what he was aiming at. 'What do you thing of her?" he asked again. 'I feel extremely sorry for her, Sh« wasn't particularly pleasant to rne, but I have every sympathy for her." "You have, eh? Fat, isn't she? Patsyfaccd and overfed. They go like, that in Morocco. It is the dark of the harem, the absence of liberty and exercise. It is being treated like cattle, locked up in a hothouse atmosphere day and night, and exercised for half- an-hour a day under the eyes of the slaves. Why, it is worse than being in prison. That is what it means to be a Moorish wife. Jean, do you want to be a Moorish wife?" She met his eyes straightly. "I don't want to be any kind of wife to you," she said. v "Do you want to be a Moorish wife?" he asked her. "Or do you want to be married and have children who can bear your name and inherit your father's title?" She arose abruptly from the stool and walked to the end of the room, her back toward him. "We won't go any farther into this question for the moment," said Ralph, rising. "I'd like you to meet a very dear friend of mine, Sadi Hanz, ami be civil to him, do you hear—but not too civil." Something In his tone made her turn. "Why?" she asked. "Because he is feeling sore with me just now. He is very keen on Lydia, and Lydia has slipped him. I don't want him to have ideas about you. Ho left her to meditate upon this warning and went out to return witii the silk-robed Sadl, and a new factor came immediately into play. One glance Joan gave and she knew that this man was as great a danger as Ralph Hamon. Greater, for if he was as remorseless, he was less susceptible since he had not that brand of human vanity which made Ralph Hamon so easy to handle. She hated him, with his fat expressionless face and his dark, unblinking eyes that looked at her through and through, appraising her as though she were cattle. She hated him for the veneer of his civil- «What a difference," says PENN. mother "TV/TY little (laughter, Edith, JLVJ. suffered from constipation until she was very weak and pale," says Mrs. M. Brown, 215 Maple Avenue, Philadelphia. "She got so we had to force her to eat, and nothing agreed with her. "What a difference there is since we've been giving her California Fig Syrup. She began to pick up with the first dose. Now she's well, strong and happy, with a splendid appetite and wonderful color." When bad breath, coated tongue or fretfulness warn of constipation, don't wait. Give your child a little California Fig Syrup. A child loves it. Headaches, feverishness, biliousness vanish with its use. Weak stomach and bowels are strengthened. Appetite improves. Digestion and assimilation are assisted. Weak children are strengthened. To identify the genuine, endorsed by physicians for 50 years, look for the word California on the carton.

Here, then, was the danger; r.his she ecognlzed Instantly. Sadl Haflz did not remain long—Just ng enough to create an impression. n Joan's face he would have been sur- rised If he had read her henrt and ind, for. he rather flattered himself ion his flair for Imposing his person- Ity upon women. "What do you think of him?" asked alph when he. had gone. "I haven't thought," she said un- uthfully. "A good friend and a bad enemy," aid Hamon sententiously. "I wisn ydia had had a little more sense. lie owes me something." Joan thought it was possible that he light owe Lydia something, too, but as not in the mood for conversation. nexpectedly he rose. "I'm going now. You'll find your eeping room, I suppose? Pleasnnt reams." She said nothing. At the door he turned. "A Christian wife had a better lime ian a Moorish wife. I guess you've noticed that already." Still she did not speak. "We'll be married in two days," he said, and, with a crooked smile: "Would you like anybody else to come to the wedding?" "You dare not," she was taunted into saying. "You dare not produce an English clergyman!" "Oh, daren't I?" he said. "I'l not only produce him but he'll marry us whatever you say and whatever protests you make. You're going to meet an old friend, Joan." "An old friend?" She was for the moment taken back. "An old clerical friend," said Hamon. , "The Rev. Mr. Bannockwalte," nnd with this parting shot he left her and she heard the key turn In the lock. (To Bo Continued.) LOS ANGELES UETtJllNS.
