CHAPTER 30 THE MAN called Jack Price hail checker out. So the clerk told Lona the aecond time she called at tho hotel hoping to sec him. Just live minutes ago. No, he hadn't said where he was going. To the railroad station, probably. Leaving town. The eye;, the clerk bent on Lona wore faintly scornful as if he resented her curiosity about one of his guests. Lona smiled to herself as she went back out on the street for the second time that: morning, and headed for the city market to pick up her groceries for the day. Fate must be taking care of her, she thought, gracefully. l£ she had actually talke'J with the fellow perhaps ho wouldn't have gone away As it was, she had been worrying about nothing She \^as glad she hadn't bothered Jim about ft, she thought, as she prolonged the momentous decision between steak with miibhrooiis, or chops with dressing, ju^t for the pare enjoyment she got from wavering. She decided, finally, on the chops, and went on up Main street feeling very housew.fely and conscious of the package under her arm. .She had no presentiment ot what v^us to come as she set the dinner table that evening In readiness for Jim's return from work. Looking back, later, she wondered how she could possibly have been so happy, to unbelievably happy. The chops were neatly breaded waiting- to be popped into the pan and she was arranging a bunch of velvety red asters from the Morris £7mlcn in a round blue bowl for the table center piece, when the creak of Dinah's chair sounded in tho hfill outside. "Busy?" the girl sang out, aiu there was an odd hesitancy in her voice. She smiled almost apologetically SLS Lona helped her through the door and into the room. "There's something I--ought to tell you," she began, evidently em barrasscd. "I cion't want you to UUr.k I'm prying into your affairs but there was a--a man here a fcv, minutes ago. He was asking abou you," "A man! Asking about me?' Lena's heart sank. "Was he--wa. he a reporter?" she brought out. "A reporter ?" Dinah sounde surupnsed. "I don't think so, H was hunting a man by the name o Kankm. He seemed to think tha might be Jim s name," "Rankin?" Lona shook her head "I've never heard that r.ame. Wha made him think that Jim--" Sh broke off, her eyes searching: th bright face before her. "Did h have a picture cut from a newspaper?" she asked, tensely. Dinah nodded. "It looked like Jim, too, Lona," she admitted, unhappily. "I told him your name was Bannett and that--that I was sure it wasn't Jnw :n the picture. It looked n. lot younger than Jim." "younger?" Rehcf took hold of Lona. "Oh, then it couldn't have been Jim. It's some mistake. The only picture I know of was taken latciy. When we were married, and I was in it, too." "Bui it was Jim, Lona!'* Dinah looked troubled. "I could have sworn H, And the jnan was a detective!" "A detective?" "Yes. He left this card. He said he was going to the bridge to get a look at Jim when he leaves work. He's been caUed back to Chicago, he said, but he wants to see Jim before he leaves. He wouldn't say why he was looking for this--Rankin man." For a moment Lona stared uown at the piece of cardboard Dinah had thrust into her hand, "Jack Price, Western. Detective Agency,' it read, and a feeling- that something had gone wrong- possessed her. Something 1 besides her own fear of reporters. A detective! IS newspaper hunting copy would work through a detective agency. Could it be that Jim--after all, she know so little about him. Conscious of Dinah's eyes following- her every move, she put the card into her apron pocket nonchalantly. "Thanks for telling me, Dinah, she brought out, and removing her apron, casually reached for her coat. "It's nothing to get hot and bothered about. Just some mistake in identity. She smiled us she pulled her hat down over her curls. "I have forgotten the cream for the salad, ·^ «*h^ *'I5ut it was Jim, Lonal'* Dinah looked troubled. she told Dinah, lightly. "Would vou mind waiting while I mn down to tho corner grocery? Jim hates salad dressing withcmt whipped cream. I'll only be a minute." "I have my own supper to get," Dinah reminded her, turning her chair with expert hands. "I must be going. I just thought I'd run over and tell you about--that man. He--I didn't like him, Lona. He asked so many questions, about whore you came from, and about Jim's work." "Don't let it worry you," Lona reassured her again. "It's quite an adventure, really. Imagine a real Jive detective in your own parlor! Wish I'd been here." She managed to laugh as she lifted the clicking: chair over the Morrlss threshold, and Dinah laughed, too. "He didn't look much like a detective," she complained. "He wasn't fat and. he didn't chew a cigar. He was a disappointment." She laughed again, and her spirits seemed destored. Once outside the house, away from the probing of the shining blue eyes, Lena's smile died quickly, and she set ofl downtown, almost at a run. It had come to her as she held that card in her ham] and listened to Dinah's stumbling account of the man's visit, that Jim ought to be warned. Why, she did not know. Surely there must be some mistake, she told herself, as she went down through town toward the bridge where Jim and the rest of his crew were waiting- for the closing whistle. The man couldn't be hunting for Jim. It was someone else; someone who resembled him. That often happened. And yet . . . Her feet quickened of their own accord as she followed her shadow down toward the river which lay broad and glistening in the late afternoon sun. She had not yet been down to the bridge when Jim was working-, and as she came within sight of the towering span she wondered how she was to find him and keep him out of sight of the prying and her heart be careful!" she- It was the gay plaid of his shirt, about which she had so often teased him, which centered her attention upon him finally. Its bright colors flashed suddenly from the highest span, and she saw him standing w.tii his strong: figure outlined against the windy sky. At almost the same moment he seemed to sec her, for he waved to her nonchalantly from, his uncertain foothold jumped. "Jim, yelled out, J3 e «tt c ss that her puny voice could not carry more than a few feet. As if that cry were a signal, a sudden, dismayed shout went up from the working; men beneath Jim. A shout that was choked off into tense silence. Turning, she saw that a new girder was being swung into place. Riding it, as it swayed. in the air, was the tiny figure of a man, clinging precariously. Even as her eyes caught his black silhouette against the skyline, the figure slipped, with the turning of the girder. Slipped side wise and Jown. The man was loft hanging" by one hand, his body dangling in the air. "He's gonna fall!" somebody yelled hoarsely, as the figure the other hand eyes that watching. even now might be Halting for a moment on the old bridge that was to be abandoned when the new was completed, she stood looking out at the shining new structure m dismay. Squinting, she made out figures like running ants, busy on the girders hig-n in the air above the swirling water. Mingled with the noise of the drivers and the engines, busy shouts rose now and then and, standing on tip-toe, her hands in her pockets, the wind from the river tumbling her hair about her face, she scanned Uie laboring figures one by one, her heart beating fast. She had never realized before how dangerous this work was, how spidery the framework of a new bridge, nor how great its height above the black waters. She had to stand there almost five minutes before she located Jim scrambled to back on the slippery iron. For what seemed an eternity he hung there, the girder swerving: on the end of its cable, his body swinging with it like a human pendulum. Fascinated, Lona watched, unable to tear her eyes away. Do something! Why doesn't somebody do something, she prayed. Slowly the giant crane swung the girder nearer anu nearer its destination, the human fly still ding-ing. It would reach the perch where Jim was waiting, Lona saw, and her clenched fingers cut into her palms as she watched. Would Jim be able? A groan went up as the swaying" girder came- to a stop with a jerk that almost dislodged its rider. By what seemed a miracle he managed to hang on. He was now near enough for Jim to touch. Tensely, in a silence punctuated only by~lhe breathing of the giant engines, Jim slid over until he was opposite the clinging man. Gripping his own girder with knees and ankles hooked about it, he freed his hands and reached out. He caught at the other's swaying body and heaved. Fop a moment it seemed both would faH, then a cheer went up as the man transferred his hold and slid to a sitting position opposite Jim. It was a cheer that choked itself off into a horriJled silence in midair. For Jim, unbalanced by the sudden weight of the man he was saving, swayed for a moment, tried desperately to scramble back to security, then \s-ent plunging- with an astounding ease, straight through the skeleton of iron to the swirling waters below. x % (To Be Continued) NEWS BEHIN THE/ EXECUTOR'S XOTICK.

Harry Hopkins' recent illness was not grip, as announced, but a recurrence of his old stomach ulcer ailment. The President is very worried about him. The Commerce Secretary came back to his job after a few days in the coop at home, but is none too well. As the Piesident has temporarily lost the services of his jumping jack-man, Thomas Corcoran, and his reception secretary, Marvin Maclntyre, lor an indefinite period through illness, the question of health has become a major one in the New Deal. Chairman Pittman is saying privately his cash and carry neutrality resolution was his own idea, but his colleagues recognize also that it represents a White House desire. Curcory polling suggests it will never go through as it stands. A modification will prababiy be forced whereby sale of arms and ammunitions to any nation at war will be prohibited. The Uberal bloc composed of Borah, Nye, LaFollette, "v\mdcnberg, Bone, Clark and others seems agreed on tnis point. The argument to be used by the oppos.tion will be that a free cash and carry system simply means this Govermnent wi 11 help Bntai n--and possibly t. sen Japan. These two nations dominate their respective seas against all third parties and would be the only ones who could carry if they bad the cash. The others have insufficient snips and protection to come and get materials in wartime, even if thoy had the cash. This phase certainly will not be permitted to stand, and the entire pioposal may contain an entirely different policy by the time it gets through both houses. Gunman Freed The tax situation is this: Certain appeasement eggs have been placed in the neat. The hen is "setting." But no one knows whether the hatch will be chickens, ducks of empty shells. Congressional tax experts have discovered a serious defect in the unpublished Treasury tax plan. Instead of appeasing, it would soak business corporations now exempt from undistributed and excess profits and paying only 16'A per cent. These would pay 20 per cent under the proposed tax idea unless some special provision is made for them. Included among the unfortunates would be banks, trust companies, corporations in receivership, mutual investment William Zupkosky (above), once called Philadelphia's toughest gunman, paroled from prison while serving' from 70 to 140 years, then rearrested and charged with a number of crimes not listed at his first trial, was freed in Philadelphia court by Judge Harry S. McDevitt. The magistrate sentenced him to from 100 days to 100 years but suspended sentence, saying he thought ZupUosky was a "reformed man" and that he would find him a job. companies and some others. It is quite possible small business earnings less than $25,000 will be exempt in the new tax plan, as inside, , figures show they wculd contribute only about 52,000,000 in revenue.
