MEMBER OF Associated Press Audit Bureau of Circulation Inland Daily Press Association WRITTEN FOR AND RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION THE CHURCH SUPPER Mrs. Peake, proprietor of Hill House, ! New England summer resort. Is found murdered by the "spite fence" erected near her property by her estranged sister, Miss Ivy Newcomb. Previous to the. murder the guests had been concerned about the poisoning of one of their number. Mrs. Rutherford, who recovers, strange sounds of a prowler on the property, and the ransacking m , - of one of the rooms. Those at Hill The annual clum-li supper, iu our humble opinion, is gouj» beside^ or. thNee ^ caadndwoJ m°an C are Sa'lly Gordon, spending her first vacation there; her close friends. Rhoda and her fiance Duncan; Dr. Paul and Pauline Rutherford, children of Mrs. Rutherford; Coral Easton, Bruce Orton and Joseph Barry. Josie Is friendl. with Alan Murray who lives at Miss Ivy's, and that infuriates her brother, Neal. He likes Coral Easton. for whom Josie has no use. The police begin their Investigation. one of the' few surviving' institutions in which everybody wins. The ladies donate the food and work, and plenty of it; the customers donate tlie funds; the church i.s the beneficiary. •So. thanks to the energy and enterprise of the ladies, the church treasury is swelled to an extent and the customers get more and better fowl for their money than almost at any other time or place in the year. The past month, it may have been noted, has been open- season for the animal church suppers. We know from experience because Wednesday night brought us our seventh. There are three more just ahead which we wouldn't miss for the world. In oui annual set-to with some of the best chicken in ; Mason county, varied from time to time with well-turned pork and beef, we have tasted flu- food of Scottville, Free- | soil, Victory township. (Busier, Eden and Ludington. We missed several others by a hair's breadth, solely because of inability to eat more than one meal at a lime. We could rave for pages ubout the quality of Mason county cooking, as demonstrated at these affairs. We liked • them especially because everywh?rc, without exception, they had hiibbard squash, which is one of our favorites. But what we liked even better than the food, believe it or not, was the sociability. You see a lot of people sitting and talking whom you don't see together at any other season. Everybody visits a bit and you never know who's going to show up next. In fact, our neck rubbers around so much that it takes twice as long to eat. At least that is our story. The annual church supper, to us, is one of the few surviving thrones of real old-fashioned neighbor! in ess. We enjoy them to the hilt. In fact, we have never been able to make up our mind which is the best, the food or the sociability. It is a most excellent institution and long mav it prosper. Everybody wins except the women ' who do the work, especially those who do noble duty in the kitchen far from the spotlight's gleam. CHAPTER EIGHTEEN WHEN THE chief drew me to one side I had a feeling that I was joining the forces of law and "Is everyone here ?" he asked. "No. Mrs. Rutherford and her daughter Pauline are not here. You will find them in their cottage, I am sure. Rhoda Button is with Josie upstairs, and Chloe. the cook, 1s making sandwiches and coffee in the kitchen. Mrs. Rutherford has been quite sick and is convalescing," I went on. "As soon as Chloe has finished, if you wish. I will send her to sit with Mrs. Rutherford. That will allow Pauline to come here." "You feel strongly about this, don't you?" The chief's eyes bored into mine. "I do," I returned bluntly. "I've heard about this place and the Peake's for five years, although it is my first visit. I like—er—liked Mrs. Peake and Neal, and I feel as though I had always known Josie. I'll do anything on earth to help find the one who—" I stopped, gritting my teeth to prevent my fool- >3h voice from shaking. "I understand. We're going to ask some questions here. I want you to listen to everything and, if there is anything said which does not coincide with your own personal knowledge, tell me later. Will you do that?" "I will." "Thank you. Will you see If Josie will join us now?" I- must have betrayed my surprise at his familiar use of name, for he smiled and said: her small town now, where everyone "You're in a Miss Gordon, knows everyone else. Josie and my daughter were school chums." I was glad of that. I felt it would make things easier for Josie if someone she knew was in charge. "When you have talked with Josie, will you see how soon the cook can go to sit with Mrs. Rutherford? I want all here together * -~ • A SAD COMMENTARY T , Just why we should be pestered in big headlines about the escapades of one mentally incompetent woman who lives hundreds of miles away'and whose career, while spec- j ^-^wOL"^"^™^ tacular, is of no importance to the world or its-problems, is more than we know. Winnie liuth Judd, we believe, should be treated like any other mental unfortunate. Making a national splurge of such cases is a sad commentary on a type of journalism that is more maudlin than sensible. In fact, any nation which tries to win a war on an week may find its chickens coming hom/c to roost. And marriage is a down-payment that i.s destined to turn out well if we keep up (he installments. Alkaline is Latest Ringworm Treatment By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. SCIENCE is usually ahead, but sometimes it is behind the "common sense" opinidto of the man in the street. When science catches up wtyh him, the event should be ac- kndwledged, even celebrated. It has long been a fundamental belief, generally held in non-scientific quarters, that the itchy, blistery eruptions occurring on the feet, in the groir and sometimes on the fingers are caused by "acid in Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through * his column. the blood." The medical profession hu pooh-poohed this and pointed out that the'blood does not and can not get acid without very serious consequences. Anyway, it has said, these eruptions are caused by a microscopic fungus commonly called ringworm, scientifically called tri- chophyton. I have done a good deal of this i pooh-poohing myself, and in partial * jrtatitution I should like to say that "~' now has found that there is hing in the acid idea. The lat- |t treatment of these forms of pete's foot is to attempt to ige the chemical reaction of the 1 tinauea, ' << Variety of Fungi i is a great variety of fungi OM the ..trouble, and that produced many methods of nit.

"Chief Forrest is here, Josie," I began without preamble. "Do you feel able to come down to the lounge or would you rather he would talk with you here?" "Which would be best for him ? I mean best for—" She stopped short. Her great brown eyes looked pleadingly into mine. "I think it would be a help if you feel able to go down to the lounge," I replied. "Then I will." With scarcely a trace of weakness, she rose and began to arrange her hair. I turned to go. "Wait for me," she said. "I won't be a minute." "I have to go to the kitchen. The chief wants Chloe to sit with Mrs Rutherford so that Pauline join us in the lounge." "Go then, but come back for me." Neither words nor voice faltered but if ever a girl looked as if she had received a killing blow, Josie did. In the kitchen I found Chloe, her growth increases the acidity of the sandwiches made, coffee machine skin in the area where they are 3m- , P IU && ed into the heater, cups, planted. cream and sugar neatly arrayed on can ,. T, polic ^ mans fo ' t cottage. Course, I ain't afraid, but—" Scorn at her own —it has been found possible to produce so unfavorable an environment that fungus growth is ch*:ked. The powder can be sprinkled between the toes and also in the shoes to prevent reinfection. In the form known as oliotic itch, in the groin or under the armpits, sprinkling the powder on twice a day is helpful. Observe Precautions All the other precautions of the treatment of ringworm should be observed. These cases are. often very chronic and secondary' infec- ; By MRS. ALEXANDER GEORGE tion is common. This must be treated with antiseptics. When the secondary infection and fissures are healed, the alkaline powder can be used. The occurrence of reinfection in ringworm is a most important feature in keeping these eruptions "I want to get out of here," cried Coral Easton, weakness spoke in her voice, shone in her eyes. "Anyways, Miss Pauline oughtn't to walk around alone on THIS night. I can lock the cottage door, but she'll—" In the lounge door I caught the chief's eye. He came over to me and I repeated Chloe's request. "Certainly," he said vexedly. "1 should have thought of that myself. Ireson. go with Miss Gordon. She'll give you your orders. Back to the kitchen I went once more. "Chloe," I said earnestly. "I'm going to lock this door on the inside. Someone will walk- back with you when Miss Pauline goes over to the cottage. I'll see to that." "Thank you, ma'am " And In the fervency of her reply and the squaring of her shoulders as she, with the oflicer. stepped out into the fog, I realized how much bravery Chloe was unobtrusively displaying. As I went back to the lounge, I heard Coral Easton's voice. Shrill and high it rang through the room: "I want to get out of here!. I want to get out of here:" As I started up the stairs. I cart one disguster' look at her. She half lay against Joseph Barry, her head thrown back against his shoulder After the struggle the rest of us were making. I could have wrung her neck. Josie and Rhoda were ready and we went quietly back to the lounge. Chief Forrest came to the foot of the stairs to greet Josie. He held her hands in his for a long time without saying a word. I think his wordless sympathy soothed her more than the most fervent protestations could have done. As we sat down on the other davenport. Cora! Easton again cried out: "I want to get out of here. I want—" The chief, e.xasperatedly. cut her short. "Miss Easton," he said sharply, "there is no question of you or any other leaving this house until this matter is settled. You have made enough fuss; now keep still." The shock of his words was so great that she actually stopped her wailing. But Dr. Paul saw fit to interfere. "Chief Forrest," he said, and his voice held a note of condemnation. "Miss Easton is a very nervous, highly strung person and—" The chief silenced him with a piercing glance and uplifted hand. "When I need your advice, I will ask for it," he said curtly, and Dr. Paul sank back In his chair with red angry face. Neal, who was still holding his head in his hands, lifted it at the altercation. His face changed when he saw Josie. He rose shakily from his chair and crossed to her. I moved over from Josie's side and he sat in my place. I did not hear them exchange a word, but he held her hand in a loving clasp, and I am sure that each took comfort from the other's nearness. The outer door opened softly and Pauline, accompanied by an officer, came in Paul sprang to his feet, his face convulsed with anger. "Mother?" he cried. "Have you left her alone ?" Chief Forrest opened his lips to speak, but Pauline forestalled him. "Chloe is with her." Pauline spoke quietly, but she was white and frightened looking, although controlling her emotion with a courage I admired. "I must gc " Paul jnapped out. "I don't want to leave her like t!:at." He started toward the door. "Go back and sit down," yapped the chief. "Your mother will be perfectly safe with the Peake's cook for a short time. Ireson, go back to the Rutherford cottage and stay there until someone comes for you or Mrs. Rutherford asks you . come for ncr son or daughter." From the expression on Dr. Paul's fnce I am sure it was years since his wishes or opinions had been so coolly set aside. It did not please him at all, but his good sense prevailed and he smiled grimly as he bowed acquiescence to the chief's incontrovertible orders. Bruce Orton. who had been sitting by Dr Paul, arose and gave his seat to Pauline when she entered. He now sat down on the davenport b? Coral Easton, who promptly proceeded to move closer to his side. Barry did not seem to take kindly to her desertion and glowered at Orton In a way that, despite the horrible occasion, made me want to laugh. ' US Chief Forrest again came ovei j|H to me. ; asp "Are all here now?" he asked. I nodded and he turned and addressed us all. B "Captain Lancy," with a bow to- , |jj ward the tali man in plain clothes, ; iH "was. very fortunately for us, in my ofrVe when this call came through. He is the head of the detectives of this state and will take j charge of the case. Captain Lancy." ' The chief bowed again, stepped hack and sat down. I thought from the expression on the tall man's face that he was US slightly amused at the punctilious introduction Chief Forrest gave him. He looked searchingly around at each one of us and, as he did so, my memory rang the bell. I knew who Captain Lancy was. I should know. I had seen his picture ofter enough.
