"Oh, Molly," Brent groaned, "why on't you tell them tho truth?" Louis camo out of tho bedroom with two bulging cases, One popped pon suddenly, and an assortment ot iothlng spilled on tho floor. "What arc you trying to do? Wipe p tho floor with my clean shirts?" tevo asked angrily. He stooped nd picked up somo of the gar- icnln, still keeping a hand on his un. From tho dork porch outside came x grim command: "Drop* the artll- cry, Black. You, too, fellow; This machlnn gun's primed for action. It won't do you any good to tako a wild shot Into tho darkness.

Wo'ro going to live!" Ho held her close. The next moment ho folt a friendly hand on his shoulder.. "So you thought you could come ip ngalnst a gang single-handed, noting man?" Chief Donavan grinned.

Wo wanted tho gang to Ihlnk wo woro hoodwinked. "Von see,",, tho dotccllve continued, "wo figured they had managed tho masquerade, though wo didn't know how, and were planning to got a ransom demand later.

"You're Wbn- derful, Chief. You saved our Ives." "Guess wo did at that," Chief Donavan said with a mntlo. "And you saved my reputation. I didn't IRVO enough evidence to turn these 'cllows up Until you came along. C you weren't such a good archl- ,eol I'd put you on my force." "Thanks, but this life is too exciting for me," Brent smiled. "I'd rather build houses." "Kind of planning to build ono of your own, aren't you?" the chief queried, his eyes twinkling. "We'll give you and Miss Mllford a lift, Mr. Stuart. There's halt a dozen cars around hero." "I'd llko to go baqk in tho rattletrap, if you don't mind," Molly said. 'And I'll lovo every rattle." "Homo of us will be trailing you until wo get out ot these parts," Chief Donavan said. "Then, when we got to town, we'll break the news to Mr. Mllford that his. daughter has been found. . . . All right, aoys, If Iho bracelols are on, we'll load up." Neither Black nor Louts glanced at Molly and Brent as they wore husllod by, but Louis moaned whun thoy were being loaded into Iho police car, "It you had only listened to mo, Steve." Molly sat close to Breut as they bumped down the highway, across tho bridge and Into the city. Oh, It was good to bo back among tho Ighls, In a well-ordered roullno. Back among houses that were homos. Back to tho dear, dear common places of life! Sho squeo/ed Brent's arm rapturously, and fnlt the answering pros sure ot his hand on hers. And now they had reached tho grounds of the Mllford estalo. Cars woro whirling by, lurnlng Into tho drive. Already tho news had spread. "Nobody knows us In this car and these clothes," Molly whispered. "Wo'ro just people, aren't we?" Bront stopped tho car near the gato and took Molly Inlo his arms. "Just people," ho said. "It's shock- Ing how they behave!" A policeman sauntered up. "I've been sent horo to clear traffic around horo tonight. Suppose you young folks go off and find a park." "Thank you, Officer," Brent said. He started the car and. to the policeman's amazement, the shabby car with Its shabby occupants rattled gaily through tho Iron gixto. Hrelit wald. "Before 1 turn you over to that crowd In there, darling, I want, lo ask you a question. Havo I over asked you to marry me?" "No," Molly said. "but thai doesn't mutter. I'm going to." THI3 END ALFRED HARttBLl. N BW TORK, Sept. 4.—Thoughts while strolling: Those obscure, outmoded hotels with dyed mus- lached oldsters in tho lobbies.

Oamest ot the physically handicapped writers: Frank Scully. Mitzl Green, once my ace Screen Nuisance, has become, since growing up, about ono of our best mimics. John Hoagland suggests Vash Young blown up. Have the films ever revived "Sis Hopkins"? And can anyone forget Rose Melville? Dashlell Hammett needs to be prodded into more fiction. Don Herold's name suggests R plumed knight. Tho subdued and thoughtful looking Jimmy Walker, t see him around—an old actor. Silver haired, marvelous profile, shabbily neat.

Tho pedantic Gene Tunney has among other accomplishments, be come quite the gourmet. Head wait' ers say his dinner selections have the Brlllat-Savarln flair in both food and vintages.

At tho Marguery. too, I saw a different tables two writers at top o the heap five years ago but not evet in the pulps today. Julian Street In writing of the fleeting acclaim pale writers used the word "Ephemeral. 1 And that word applies forcibly today. 'It was" can sound quite as poignant as the poet's,'"It'might have . *. been," E. H. Sothern, deserting tho dramatic stage for lecturing, sighed o interviewers: "No longer does the- lubllc care for the things I used to do." That was wrung from an an- • gulshed heart And Is the eventual 'ate of every creative artist. I spied this breakfast menu—Bugs 3aer Was peeking, too—tacked to the doorway of a southern tearoom in East Fifty-first street arid went drooling and wringing my hands the way home: Chilled fruit cup, eggs scrambled in grated sausage, hot but- .ered pocketbook rolls, crab apple lelly, crisp bacon and iced mint tea. Roscoo Peacock sends a rotogravure ot Douglas Fairbanks and his lady at a night club table with thin caption: "Life has got you, Doug. Bo careful of those off guard expressions.'

A Greenwich Villager took $60 of it and bought black silk bed sheets. There's tho Village spirit in capsule! It recalls the Iwo dashing gentlemen of Chicago's Near North Side, "Left Bank," who papered their apartment with covers of tho Now Yorker. Whoops! A real tweedy Scotsman, fairly smelling of peat and stroking tho largest bowled pipe ever I saw was a caller today. The day was warm and, despite the stuffiness of his clothes, , he looked calm, cool, comfortable. Just a single brush with the Scotch climate and its' easy to understand tho why of baggy clothes in contrast * to the razor-edged surtouts of America.

ELECTION JOBS ;dltor The Callfornian: Right after an election there Is always someone, usually ot the male ex. who writes in to the editor ob- ecllng to tho Incompetent "matrons" who preside at the polls. My guess s that tho objection is not to the work these women do. but rather to ho fact that they are rather well paid for the job. He Is undoubtedly f tho chivalrous typo who would see o It that the girl had a good job lotoro he would deign to propose to icr, knowing full well that under our delightful laws tho husband can spend the earnings ot his wife. However, my husband Is going to let me my shoes and other necessities, so . am not kicking. • When you consider tho number of lours put In—wo worked 10% hours nst time, and that Is less than usual, tho pay Is not excessive. Doing work of similar responsibility for private employers, I have been paid ?6 for seven hours and It was well earned. Onco I was paid at the rate of 20 cents an hour on the election boar"d In Bakersfleld. That is not much for silling on Iho 'sunny side ot a tout all day. That kind ot a head' acho is worth more. However, I agree with tho objcc tlon that many of tho election work ers are unqualified, incompetent, ig norant and physically unfit for tho task. Part of the difficulty is due to tho poor lighting, the excessive height ot the tables and the fact thai somo are blind In ono eye and can't understand what thoy see with tho other. Tho light was Just barely in side ot the tent because tho wire was too short and it was impossible for us to got near enough to it. H caused a rofleclion on tho Inside of the spectacles of those obliged to wear them. Tho tally sheets nre so largo that nt tho height of the tables ono cannot see them well oven wltl perfect eyesight. A tree hnd been half cut down am tho debris left In front of tho tent The women had to clear this away Then the steel chairs (or something had been packed In straw, leaving tho tent floor like a stable.

MINERVA. APARTMENT HOUSES Editor The Callfornian: I wonder if the avalanche of criticism aimed at tho Bakersfleld apartment house owners, appearing n the press recently, Is true, t wonder if the Bakersfleld apartment louso owners nro deserving of tho inference that they are a diabolical combination of Jesse James. Simon ; Legreo and Mr. Diablo, who lay awake nights thinking vip new ideas' on how to strangle babies, choko cats and butcher dogs, is correct. I say they do not, and I know a majority of tho owners. Bakersfield docs not boast an apartment house association, nnd therefore each owner Is at liberty to and does, manage bis own business. He makes his own prices and fixes his own conditions, nnd manages his property for his own best Interests, just as does every other business In Bakersfield. I am not going to weary you with the woes of an apartment houso manager. Thoy would fill this entire page. Tho apartment houso business In Bakersfleld, is on a par with tho same typo ot business in any other city In California, so why knock Bakersflcld. If some of tho critics will tako tlmo to Investigate some of our cities in the south, they will return to Bakersfleld with tho firm conviction that the Bakersfleld apartment house owners are bona fide members of tho Good Angels Circle and maybe stop their knocking thrMr "homo town.
