Probably he really was a lunatic. Hut there was nothing particularly insane auoul what lie had to .say. The king and all Ibe bij, r -\vitf.s were (here, 'di'invit up in orderly files about tile. World Wai- Cenotaph. The heart- njo'yiiig period of silence had bo);uii, and, ail over Briliiiu men and women were standing in (jniet remembrance oC.ihe men who had been lulled. ./'l/hcn;: suddenly and dramatically, a harcheadeil \\VA\\ i\\ u nuuuoal rushed forward, jo.sllqd his way through the lines oil soldiers and sailor.-;, readied u within a yard of Prime Minister- Neville Chamberlain, and cried in 'a loud voice: . "Stop all this hypocrisy! You're dc- hhei.itch iiitiwung .for a new war!' 1 Veil, ot touise, they gave the man Ihu bumS msh Away he went in tlic hands of the coppers. When the period of silence ended, the crowd to \ell, "Kill him!" But ho was.taken away unmanned; and later, in the House of Pnihanient, Home Secretary Su Samuel Ho<ne announced that the chsluibei "\\dt> obviously suffering l^pni .1 deluMon" and.would be kept uiHiei obheivaiion, v So ttut ended that.

So what happened? So nearly a .score of year.s passed, and Anmslice Day came around again, and people stood in silence to honor their dead and renew the vow that it should not happen again; and all the while the it real fleets were being built up, and the air squadrons were being enlarged, and the armies were drilling, and the new war was visibly drawing closer, Is it any wonder that one man was driven to inlcrrupl the ceremony with a desperate cry of protest? It did no good, of course, lie was ".suffering from a delusion." Hut he must have made at least a few people wonder uneasily just who was being insane. Suicide (ramble H is hard to understand the particu- \nr kind of menial aberration that led lliose two western youths to try the old lUissian-suicidc stunt of the onu- shell-and-lhe-revolvor. In this stunt, you put one shell in the gun, twirl the cylinder, put tho nin'/.xle to your head, and lire. There / is one chance in-sis that you will lull yourself: live chances that the firing pin will hit nothing and that you will livo.

The insolent 1 underworld; gangs that were so notorious a few years ago have pretty u;ell been broken up; yet J. Edgar Hoover, head G-man, warns that if is a mistake to suppose that crime in the United States is decreasing. Addressing a convention of the American Hotel Association, in pills- burgh, Jlr. Hoover slated bluntly that more felonies were committed thus fur i" 1M7 than in the same period year. There were sharp increases in robberies, burglaries, larcenies and auto thefts. There were more, homicides, more cases of criminal assault. -Clearly, there is nothing in this picture lo justify any trace of complacence in our iiUilu.dc toward the crime problem.

Oinlnicnts have been discovered CHAPTER XXV •' T seemed strange, Alan thought, : lo ba in New York, in America again. Six months had passed since his hurried departure that morning. II might have been yesterday. Things were so unchanged. U was even stranger to be here in a nev/ role. Not as a penniless yonng man at odds with his father, seeking a foothold in a big, strange city. But rather, as an artist returning with his father's full approval, called back by an amazing turn of fortune, "Sun Over Seville" had really been sold by the dealer this time, •ind to an authentic purchaser. A connoisseur of, art, who had paid $5000, and then had insisted on an exhibit of Alan's pictures. And strangest ot all—with the \vorld suddenly so friendly—that there should be no thrill or happiness for him. • Jill, by now, lie was sure, had married Milo Monlanne; and was hvmg a luxurious life with him. During the six months he had been away, Alan had tried lo put her completely out of his mind. He had told himself she was hard unworthy, deliberately cruel. Whenever he thought of Jill's loveliness, he would remind himself of that cheap, spectacular dance to the dreadful sound of the Wedding March in one-step time. How coulci he flunk for a moment thai he could love a girl Who could do a thing like thai! * t i J£E had reached liis destination, and a servant was ushering him into a room filled with beautiful art treasures, rich with color. A hand was suddenly on his shoulder. Alan turned to face the smiling deafer. "So you're back! This lime here lo make terms, rather than seek them. I'm glad to see you, my .boy. I think f slinll be very proud one day to say 1 sold your iirsl picture in New York. Sit down." Alan nal dovw). "It is scarcely believable," lie said. "I am very anxious to meet the man who liked my picture so well. I'll he frank. I had become utterly discouraged." "I know. Artists arc like that," the dealer said slowlyr "I think your first unfortunate experience had something to dp with it. It was misplaced kindness on the parl of Miss Wcntworth. Poor girl!" A chill of apprehension ran through Alan. Poor girl. What could he mean, speakihg' of Jill like that? "I don't ihink Miss Wentworlli K to be pitied," Alan said stiffly. "It seems to me she lias every- ILL '.. " -l I I'll 1*1. BY MARY RAYMOND.. :, \W, NEA Soviet,l«; thing to make her happy." The dealer stared. "Is it possible you don't know that her lather died? His fortune, was lost, and the young lady is working in H Uopurlrnent store." "But her fiance!" Alan began. His voice shook. "Surely, he would not let her down because her father's business failed." "I'm afraid, Jcflry, that you don't understand the human heart," the dealer said softly. "The young man was not to blame. The papers carried the story. It seemed Jill Wontworth had become engaged to him to save her father's business. And after his death—the police tried to make something of a mystery out of a heart attack—Jill Wcntworth asked young Monlanne to release her." "What mystery! Great heavens," Alan cried, "tell me something." "I'm trying to tell you' now, JeMry. There was a blow on Mr. Wentworth's temple, which the police declared contributed to his death. They tried to place suspicion on the girl. But an old woman had seen her in front o£ an apartment on 67th street at the exact hour Mrs. Wentworth and the secrelary had heard Mr. Wentworth fall. Curiously, Jeffry, it was the same apartment building where you also lived." Alan's face was whitp. Jill had come to him that morning. And hq had been away. Then, he had sailed for England, without knowing of her trouble. What could she have thought about his disappearance? And she had not married Milq. She had planned to, to save her father. And then when her father -vyas dead, she had chosen lo be poor rather than marry Milo. He could have shouted his joy lo the world. "And now!" the. old dealer said softly. "I suspect you have forgotten all about that meeting you are to have -with Mr. Fenwick this morning. You will be going to see Jill Wentworth. And' isn't it fortunate that I've been keeping up with her through the newspaper stories, and am able to tell you where she is staying?" t * * ' " ' "T WISH I could be like the optimistic gentleman \yhp said every day he was better and better," Patty said, speculative eyes on Jill's wan face. "But I can't. Every day you look worse, to'me. There's no need for you to be slaving, in a store do\ypto\yn, when I make :enough to: ialsei care of both of us. And 'if'you"won't accept help from me, there are Jack and Sylvia offering you u home. Jill, as much as-I'd "miss you, I wish you \yould go to {hen;. , . not use4 t° psrd wojic. 'I'm Awfully \voVried about you." The two girls were at'the breakfast table at Patty's home. '•'You needn't be," Jill spoka in ;i cheerful tone. "It's very good for me to work. Millions of other girls have to work. Why shouldn't "But those millions of other girls haven't been reared as you have," Patty countered. " "You need time to become strong enough to lake the tough breaks. 1 ' "I'm strong enough,"'Jill insist* ed. "Please dpn'| bother, Ptfly. don't know what I would have done \y\thout my job.
