Among them are Sally Gordon, spending her first vacation there; her close friends, Rhoda and her fianre, Duncan; Dr. Paul's sistpr. Pauline; Coral Easton. Bruce Orton, Joseph Barry and Dr. Neal Peake and Josie Peake. children of Mrs. Poake. the proprietor. Not long after Josie discovers that someone has ransacked her room, she confides to Sally that she is worried and tells her all about "the Bpite fence." erected near Hill House by Miss Ivy Newcomb. estranged sister ot Mrs. Peake. Josie is friendly with Alan Murray, who lives at Miss Ivy's, and that infuriates her brother, Ncal. He likes Coral Easton, fur whom Josie has no use. SALLY'S SURPRISE It came as quite a sluwk to read a day or so a?r<» t], a f Miss Sally Rand, \vliose antics at Chicago's Century of Progress and San Francisco's Hold en date exposition were widely heralded, has filed voluntary bankruptcy at San Francisco, listing debts of .f<>-U;:-M and assets of SS.OdT.

DoctorVisits a City But Finds No Safety CHAPTER THIRTEEN WHEN JOSIE referred to the letter her mother had received, I didn't know what to say. I couldn't make a guess about that. It was beyond me. The rest was simple enough. Neal Peake ought to be shot, I thought grimly. If Coral Easton wouldn't wait for him until his practice was established so that he could take care of her, he was better off without her. And as for Josie's friend, Alan Murray; as long as Mrs. Peake was on their side that would straighten itself out. Josie, only 23, could afford to wait a year or even more. Josie was looking at me. I had to say something. "My dear," I said slowly, weighing each word that I might be sure it was the right one, "I nave no idea what the letter could have held that it should so disturb your mother. But remember this, very often we go to a man for understanding when we hate to lay our btirdens on another woman's shoulders. That may be the reason your mother confided in Neal and not in you. "I wouldn't worry about it any moi-e. You and Alan are young. You can afford to wait a year or so longer. And with your mother's love and understanding behind you, I am sure it will all come right some day." "Mother said almost those same words to me, Sally, but it's so hard to wait." She drew a long sigh as she spoke. Then she smiled a little. "I feel like a selfish pig," she confessed. "You've been awfully good, Sally. You've listened to my tale of woe and you've straightened out my room. I'm going to try to be more sensible, more like you." "Good grief," I cried in astonishment. "Don't try to be like me. Try to be like your mother. From all Rhoda's told me she really is an example to follow." "Rhoda's told me a lot about you, too," she said half shyly. "I know lots about you. I've wanted to know you for ages." "Please, Josie," I begged, "don't say any more." I really was embarrassed. I could feel the hot color burning my face. I could well imagine the things Rhoda had said to her about me. She used to say them to me until I got mad one day and cut her short. I don't know what in the world I have done that anyone can find to praise. I was sent to school. There was money enough for that. The dean of the school found me a good position before I was graduated, and I've been there ever since. I've worked hard, of course. One must, to hold down a position like mine; but never have I done anything which any other girl couldn't do as well or better. "Just forget the things Rhoda said, please, Josie. I don't deserve them one bit better than she does. But remember this: I'm your friend, and whatever I can do to help you I will. If you need someone to scold you or sympathize with you, I'm righ. here." It was on that note we parted. I went to my room for a rest. I was tired and wanted to think, but thinking was denied me. I hadn't been there five minutes when Rhoda appeared. "You certainly are the limit," she exclaimed. "You come here to spend your vacation with Dune and me, and by the clock I've seen you for just five minutes since you landed." "Nonsense, Rhoda," I laughed. "And if it were true, you have Duncan—" "Yes, and Duncan's waiting for us in the lounge. So march yourself off that bed. We're going out— and this time you're going with "In all this fog?" I groaned, glancing out the window where water dripped disconsolately from the branches of a cherry tree outside. "Yes, in all this fog! Fog .s grand to walk in. We're going on the moors." "I wish I'd gone to Shinn Pond," I grumbled. "I could rest there whenever I wanted to." "And you can rest here, but not now. Come on, jump into your slacks and a sweater set. Hurry!" It wasn't any use combating Rhoda when she was in that mood. I changed my clothes and went out to the lounge where Duncan was patiently waiting. "We'll get lost, I know we will," I growled as we stepped off the terrace into the soft gray mist which hemmed us in. "We will not." laughed Duncan. "I know every inch of these moors." And we didn't. At five o'clock we were back at Hill House and I was forced by sheer honesty to admit that I had enjoyed the walk. To me. city bred, that fog was a marvelous thing, even though we did wander into a flock of sheep that scared me half to death. Duncan certainly spoke the truth when he said he knew those moors. It seemed to me that he had a speaking acquaintance with every bush, tree and rock that we saw. We gathered dripping bunches of sweet wild roses, fronds of sweet fern and gnarled branches of bayberry. We came home with our hair, decorated with crystals, our sweaters beaded with pearls, and our feet soaking wet, all from the fog. We had appetites that would have shamed a tribe of old-time cannibals, and again honesty compels me to state that I ate just twice as much as I intended. How could I help it? We had broiled lobsters for dinner that night and blueberry shortcake with whipped cream. We didn't dress for dinner. No one did. It was one of Mrs. Peake's rules that when the fog was "in," as they say, we could eat dinner in slacks and sweaters. I think there is something a little crazing in a thick fog. At least, it seemed to affect us all that way. We ate dinner, then wandered around the grounds in that ghostly gray vapor, laughing ana calling to each other like a crowd of spooks. We even played hide and seek, all of us. That, is all but Mrs. Peake, Mrs. Rutherford and Dr. Paul. He stayed with his mother to give Pauline a chance to have some air and exercise. She and I hid together once, and I asked her how her mother was feeling. She gripped my arm so hard It hurt for a long time. "She's much better. Paul says she'll be all right in a day or two. But—Sally, I want to go home. I'm scared to stay here another minute. I wouldn't even cross the lawn alon,e in this fog." Her voice sounded strained and I realized that the shock of learning her mother had been poisoned was almost too much for the girl. "Nonsense," I said briskly. "You are just being silly when you give way to such foolish fears. I believe that sometime we'll find out that that poison was a mistake. I do not believe it was ever intended for you folks." "Not for Paul?" She gripped my arm again. For an instant I hesitated. I've said before that I don't much like Dr. Paul. Maybe it was intended for him. I couldn't say. But I made my mind up quickly. A white lie might lessen Pauline's nervous tension. "No." I said stoutly, "not for Dr. Paul." "Oh. I hope so," she murmured. "I hope so." Then the whole gang, like a bunch of wildcats, was on us. Thore wasn't time for one other word and I was glad. Into the lounge we streamed but, our gaiety over, the others gradually drifted away until only Rhoda, Duncan. Neal, Pauline and I sat beside the fire. "I think I'll go over to the cottage." Pauline said. "I don't want to leave mother alone too long with Paul. She misses me if I'm long away. Will you walk over with me. Neal ? I—I don't want to jx> alone." "Of course I wfll. Wait for me here, you folks, I want to discuss something when I come back." Rhoda's high spirits seemed to have deserted her for the mom^Jit, anr) we sat silent until Neal returned. "The fog is thicker than ever," he announced. "There are three foghorns going now. We only hear that third one when the wind is right, which it isn't very often." We all listened. A long melancholy note was the friend or foe which had been with us all day. A higher, shriller tone was the second foghorn, and the third I had to strain my ears to hear. A dull, heavy note, like thunder in the distance. I was glad T was comfortably on land rather than on sea on such a night. "I wanted to tell you folk," Neal began, "that I spoke to Paul about calling in the police. He is much against it. He insists that 'it will delay his mother's recovery and hurt our business. But he has agreed that if anything further occurs we will do as you suggest." "Why so serious?" demanded Josie'a voice. "You look like a bunch of conspirators. Have you seen mother lately? She isn't in the house." (To B« Continued) By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. ONE WEEK last summer I was Marooned in one of our large cities in order to see a member of my family through a surgical operation. The patient was in the hospital and I stayed at a club. Hospital rules being what they are, I 'bad a good deal of time on my hands. One evening I toolt a stroll around the downtown streets. The summer evening air was pleasant, the people were thought-provoking, and it amused me to stare in the bookshop windows as long as I liked without danger of the proprietor coming out to give me that fishy, appraising Dr. Clendening will answer ,; questions of general interest "* only, and then only through his column. took. Absorbed as I was in a world where there were no wars, no corrupt WPA administrators, no hemorrhages, I inadvertantly stepped ,fr6m the curb just in time to be { rased by a couple of young hood- ims who swerved around the corner in a top-down runabout.

Then the uncomfortable thought occurred to me that statistics prove that more people die in bed than in automobiles. I was, as a matter of fact, surrounded by some of the most dangerous devices which the ingenuity of man has devised. I could slip in the bathtub. I could scald myself with hot running water. I could get tangled up with the elec- fan. I could electrocute myself in the bathtub with the electric razor. I could fall out the window. I could set my bed on fire N from my cigar and risk cremation m vivo, as has happened not once, but twice, to one of my most distinguished aivl intellectual friends. Home Toll Heavy Almost as many people in North America are accidentally killed in the supposed safety of their own homes as in the streets, in automobiles, in the air above, in the water, down under the earth, and in all the factories. To be exact, there are about 28,000 accidental deaths in homes per annum. Autumn being the beginning of shut-in time, remember these things: Be sure the garage door is open before you start the auto engine. Don't go into the cellar without light or support. Falls exacted a toll of 11,900 lives in 1930. Guard against fires. Burns, scalds and explosions kill about 6,000 North Americans .annually. There have been classified 19 kinds of fires; of them 11 occur in homes. Children playing with matches, gasoline used for cleaning, clothing ignited from stoves, gasoline or kerosene used to start fires, asphyxiation by smoke —are some of them.

Ashbacker was hos- i i te.ss to the members of the Pro- j | gressive Study club. ; 15 Years Ago Roscoe Conkling Fitch motored to Tia Juana, Mexico, to spent a short time. 10 Years Afro Miss Marian Hawley, a sophomore at Michigan State college, was elected a member of the HUNTERS' BOON EDITOR, THE NEWS: For five or six years federal and state bureaus have been vieing with each other to see which one can do most for the needs and the pleasures of the voters so that their department may secure larger and larger appropriations and thus be enabled to shower more and more benefactions on "their public." With the Great White Father peering out from his tepee in Washington and seeing the "U- boats" all along the Atlantic coast, with "Ma" Perkins doubtless yearning for authority to compel employers to engage radio artists to lull her proteges to sleep with bedtime ;;ongs, jvith "Uncle Martin" uncovering un- American activities in every organization and discovering spies behind every closet door, the .state officials are hard put to find new fields in which they may distinguish themselves and display their heartfelt solicitude for their constituents. Under these dire circumstances it is refreshing to note how the state liquor control commission has met the situation, .as indicated by recent press notes. It i.s expected that over a half million apostles of Nimrod will, during the next few days, cover Michigan's fields and lakes seeking what they may devour (or throw away) in the way of ducks, rabbits and other small game, this hunting season being, in the opinion of the commission, "an important business in many parts of Michigan." And how does the commission Glee club of the college.- 5 Years Ago Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Boone returned to their home at Ludington after spending a week in Chicago on a business trip. propose to assist this important | business? By extending the six- month liquor licenses so they will ' not expire until Dec. 31, thus making it possible for this small ' army of hunters to properly for; tify "themselves against the uncertain fall weather, the dangers of .snake bite and of Incipient colds and pneumonia. Who is there who wii! s^y '.:;>••• this august body, by the service thus rendered, does not earn their six or seven thousand dollar .salaries, to .say nothing to 'warranting the vast additional strength required in the proper .discharge of their arduous duties? As compared with their beneficent indulgence, how pal, try, how infinitesimal is the part played by the state conservation committee—the papers only rec- |ord that they have set the hunt; ing season at 22 days so the thou- i sands of Michigan's unemployed land thousands employed for five or five and a half days a week • may have an extra Sabbath to I devote to this sport. ! The conservation department . are employing extra wardens to ; protect the animals from illegal attack during this season.

To do them full : justice it should be noted that I this gracious extension of time i not only covers the hunting season but also the holiday season now rapidly approaching.

P. Ostrander, 408 East Loomis street. The account was contained in a letter dated Sept. 10 from Mrs. Joseph MacDonald who, with her husband, was returning from Scotland and the British Isles. Mr. MacDonald formerly resided in Scotland. Mrs. MacDonald is a cousin of Stanley S. Reeves of Lyons, N. Y.. Mrs. Reeves being the former Miss Ann Ostrander. "I know you will be anxious to hear how we are getting j along," Mrs. MacDonald " wrote from Scottland after being returned there from the torpedoed Athenia. "We have had a busy week since coming back to Glasgow, visiting the American consul, ship lines, meeting Joe's relatives here and there and trying to get a few clothes toeether. "It was a week ago tonight that we took to the life boats. I was having a tray on deck when the torpedo struck and Joe was down in the dinins; room. I had on a thin dress but luckily my warm coat I was alone except for three Awards cleaning up dishes. When it struck they ran outside. I jumped to the rail and saw the submarine moving away in a cloud of smoke I started to go inside for Joe and the life belts but it was so dark inside that I just decided to wait where I was until Joe came. He was there very soon and we went to the stairs nearest our cabins (we had been unable to get a cabin toeether). got our life belts and helped each other put them on and then found our | life boat. We helped a mother and three little children in- 1 to the boat and then more j children and their mothers— and not one sound out of those | precious children all night! i The boat was lowered and Joe land I with a few others went ;down the ladder. | Eleven Hours "We were in the life boat 11 'hours. joe bailed and rowed for at least six hours. I was I just sick i seasick)—everybodv i was, even Joe. Such a" boat 'you never saw! It seems funny i now cut it didn't then. We -were picked up at 6:30 a. m by a destroyer. I was rolled up in a blanket on a bench 'and the boys began bringing things—cigarettes, chocolates, a ; banana, cocoa, tomato soup tea. After our physical needs Swere taken care of I went to : sleep for the rest of the day iand at night I got up and ate isausase and cooked tomato , and liked it. "I slept that night on the same bench, with an old lady on a blanket on th« floor under the table beside me and : a °other woman on the table ! The submarine detector was ; in a little room right near me |and navy bovs were in and out jOf there all night. I knew I from the talk that submarines ;were near us. I think the i boys on that destroyer were l.iust about the finest men I jever knew. They were wonderful We got back to Greenlock about noon thp next day jTea and biscuits, milk for the 'children, clothing for everyone —such kindness. We came on to Glasgow, 10 miles or so in big busses and have been kept in hotels. "I wish you could see a 'black out.' The Athenia was black at night of course. Port holes closed and no one allowed on deck. Glasgow is weird. Every window black trams, busses and trains with tinv blue lights. Very few cars with white bands painted a-' round the bottom and only a tmy light, if any. All lamp posts and sidewalk curbs naint- ed with white bands. I talked with a girl yesterday who said she went out on the street the night before to see if any light was showing and she couldn't nnd her way back in. Got into quite a panic before she could get her hands oji the fence. Now they are putting wide strios of adhesive over the big glass fronts of the stores and hotels.

If a bombing plane should strike one of the wires it would come (down. There are hundreds of them over the Clyde. That explanation was given me by an officer on the Athenia. "We visited in Edinburgh and were shown into a dugout at the back door. Every house there has its bomb proof shelter. Grass and flowers growing on top. Such beautiful flowers everywhere. "I am saying nothing of the horrors of the night at the time of the sinking because you have all that in the newspapers. All the people we had met were saved. Our Buick and four other cars were on board, but we can get along very nicely without a car. "We are expecting a boat from America on Tuesday and expect lo be taken home'with- out a convoy.
