Unconsciously Linda had whispered the word and in the quiet room it seemed fairly to thunder about her ears. She gulped, shut her eyes, and resolutely opened them again. Murder murder! There, she had said it nd faced it. Murder in her house and she the only one who knew it. It was up to her, therefore, before Tom come back to decide several things.

She must tell him, of course. But should she tell anyone else? Dr. Parsons? The police? As Tom had talked, she had seen the whole affair through their eyes.

EDITOR NOTE This is the second of three stories on Charlie Chaplin's three loves Mildred Harris, Lita Grey and, now, Paulette Goddard. By DAN THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, Nov.

26. Too much Sweet Sixteen. That is the reason Charlie Chaplin and his first wile, Mildred Harris, came to a parting of the ways. At least that was the story told to me by Miss Harris. We were discussing Charlie's married life at toe time of his separation from Llla Grey, his second wife.

"Too much sweet 16 that's Charlie's trouble," Mildred commented. "What he needs, to be really happy, is a woman of about 30, a woman with a full knowledge of human nature, particularly of the kind accompanying exceptional minds, and with a brilliance to match his own." It was about 15 years ago that Charlie married his first wife, who at that time was little more than a beautiful child. They were married nearly two years before their snip of matrimony hit the rocks. A portion of the blame for this trash might be laid to the death of their infant son. Charlie always had a passion for children.

To have a son of his own and then lose him was almost too much for the comedian. He never quite recovered from the blow. Soon the Chaplin-Harris marriage was dissolved. However, Mildred took the large snare ol the oiame upon ner own shoulders. According to her own she was too young to understand Charlie, to give him the things he wanted from a wife.

"I doubt if any young girl could understand Charlie I know I didn't," Miss Harris once remarked. "Were I married to him again, I believe I could make him happy. I was Just girl before. I have learned a great deal since, and I think I know what it would take to keep Charlie happy." There is a strange twist to this great genius of comedy and tragedy.

And she is the only little girl her father and mother have. We asked Mrs, Traeger if Winifred talked very much. She said: "She never lets up!" So you see she is a real little woman! Of course, girls do not really talk more than boys, though every one seems to think so they just use more words, that is all! Winifred May is the daughter of Mr.

and Mrs. L. J. Traeger of 262 East Sixth Avenue. you were 'doing That might mean anything." "Good! There's time then" "But Linda, I'm sorry, there isn't.

Not this moment, anyhow. The undertakers' men are ready and I've got to go over to Port to make final arrangements. We're taking the body to the parlors there. We can't well, frankly, Binks, Parson said in this weather Linda shivered In spite of the brooding heat of the new day. "I see.

Must you go with the body?" "I'm afraid so. In fact, I should, Binks. It's all we can do." "How long" "They're waiting for me now, honey. Kathleen will come right up she won't leave you alone." "It isn't that. I didn't mean in fact, I'd rather oh, Tom, I'm afraid Marvin and the rest will go while you're away!" "Linda why do you worry about those men? They ought to go as quickly as they can, but as I told you, dear, there's no possible train until 12." His voice had the patient tone used with an argumentative child.

"I know. I'm sorry, Tom. I suppose there will still be time enough but hurry back!" "Of course I will, darling. You know that. Shall I tell Kathleen to come up now?" She looked out over the quiet lawn to the water, still, glassy, not broken by a ripple that might mean a hint of a breeze.

It had looked that way as she stood at Cousin Ames' balcony door and then Again she shivered. "Yes, perhaps. But warn her I dont feel like talking. Perhaps I'll try to to sleep a little." She saw that that suggestion relieved him and shivered again inwardly. Sleep, indeed! Could she ever sleep again? rr- sne (To Be Continued on Monday) What's in Dorothy DU So you and your sister are wasting breath in arguing the rights ol women In marriage.

Every wife soon finds out that she hasn't any rights that her husband feels bound to respect, but that she has a lot of privileges on which she can cash in. Every wife, for instance, who runs a big establishment for a rich husband and keeps up his social connection for him and does his entertaining or who does the cooking and washing and cleaning and baby-tending for a poor husband has a right to her share of the family income, but she can't collect it. Thousands of men refuse to give their wives allowances, but they will let their wives run up bills far in excess of any amount the wives would nave thought of asking as an allowance. Every girt has a right to expect the boy she marries to have as clean a slate as she has, bat do men recognize this right? Not at all. The man whose own past is as black its sin can make it demands that his wife shall come to him as white as snow.

I get thousands of letters from girls who have stumbled off the straight and narrow path asking if they must tell the men they are going to marry about their pasts, but never a one from a man who think that a woman has a right to know about hi transgressions. Of course, from the ethical standpoint, a wife has right to expect her husband to be as faithful to her as she is to him, and she has Just as much right to philander as he has, but the wife who tries to hold her husband up to the strict letter of his marriage vows and pay him back In his own coin If he doesn't measure up to her standard of virtue generally finds herself in the divorce court. She has right on her side and likewise a decree absolute. Lots of wives, outraged by the injustice of it and torn with Jealousies, try to get even with their husbands for stepping out by stepping out themselves and by having little flirtations of their own to pay back their husband for their affairs with other women. But two wrongs never yet made a right and, while the wife had a right to betray her husband, it didn't save her from a damaged reputation and the loss of her self-respect and a wrecked home.

As for men thinking they have a right to be head of the house and that their wives should obey them, that is merely a pleasing illnsiort with which they amuse themselves in their hours of leisure. The only time a man is the head of the house is on the first of the month when the bills come in or when his wife wants to pass the buck and tells that the reason she doesn't do something that she doesn't want to do is because her husband won't let her do it. The balance of the time she is IT. Although he knows that girls Still in or barely out of their teens can't possibly have a mentality to match his, Charlie seldom has shown any interest in more mature women. There is something about the freshness of those so many years his junior which Interests him for a time.

Then he tires of them. At least, such has been the case in the past, Perhaps his story will be written anew for him if he marries Paulette Goddard, as Hollywood is certain he will. "Where have you been for the past week?" "Oh, I moved." "Moved?" 'Yep. Landlady asked too much for the rent." "How much did you have to pay?" "Three dollars a week." "And how much is the new place?" "Five dollars a week." "But I thought you just said your old landlady asked too much for the rent." "She did four or five times a day!" Bored Walk. one of them except Tom could be trusted to see it through hers.

To Dr. Parsons end the police, too she would be hysterical, imaginative, perhaps even a little delirious from shock. Murder murder simply didn't happen in a house like this among well-bred people. She had been attackedtrue! But how could she prove it? What trace did an attempted strangulation leave? A cloth of some sort had gone around her neck so there would be no finger marks. And was she sure her own head was clear? Yes, Yet she knew.

Everything had happened as she remembered and she alone held the key to the "accident." But if she were to tell the police the incredulous, heavy-handed village police one of two things would happen. They would laugh her statements to scorn and think her simply off her head. Or they would believe her at least to the extent of detaining the men, questioning them blunderingly and fruitlessly, trampling through her house, making her repeat her own story endlessly and unavailingly and find no possible support of her theory that she had been attacked, on which also hung the proof that Cousin Amos had been murdered. Then, the instant surveillance was removed, off would go those four men. Just as they were going now in a few brief hours! On her dresser the gay little clock ticked away in the hot, silent room.

Almost half -past Voices came up through the open window from the breakfast room below. Someone was politely chatting there and wondering how soon she would come to consciousness and how much she knew. Soon that person all the four, any one of whom was capable of murder would be packing, would leave the house, unchallenged would leave her life forever but not as Cousin Amos had gone. This man would go confidently, safely Not if she could prevent it! Those men must not leave the house until she knew! Whatever she did, she could not stay in bed another moment. Swinging her feet to the.

floor, Linda stood up, a little shaky at first, and drank the contents of the glass on the table. It prickled through her veins and made her for the moment Intolerably hot but as the warmth waned she felt better and stronger. She was flinging on her clothes with quick, nervous fingers when her husband came back. "Linda!" "I couldn't help it. I had to be doing something." But she sank rather gratefully on the chaise tongue.

"Oh, Tom, I'm awfully glad you hurried back. I'm sorry I had to be so mysterious but you didn't speak to anyone of what I said, did you?" "The undertakers' men are here. I had to see about them," I only saw the others as I went through the hall." "Do they know I'm all right now?" "I didn't speak of you.

Fashion AMOS PARRISH Chaplin also Is extremely Impulsive, strongly inclined to act quickly and repent at leisure if there is any repenting to be done. His courtship with Mildred Harris was a short one. Almost before anyone in Hollywood realined that there was a serious note between them, she had become Mrs. Chaplin.

But it didn't take so long to detect trouble between them. Some time before they separated, rumors had spread through the film colony that all was not going so well in the Chaplin home.

CHAPTER XIII Linda's keen sense of hearing stood her in good stead.

Bhe spoke so urgently that Tom stopped, "Quick!" she exclaimed, "tell me what train Will they get?" "The 12 o'clock. That's the first, good one and doesn't rush "Good, that gives us time. Tom, I must talk to you it's terribly important terribly! So, whoever this is coming, get rid of him quickly. Don't worry. I'm all right in my head.

But before those men leave I must see you alone. No, I can't tell you now what it is. Only 'don't don't tell anyone I mentioned it especially anyone of those four "Binks tell what? And why on earth should I tell" "Or the doctor or your mother or anyone I Promise!" "Why, Binks" "Promise! Oh, Tom, if you ever loved me don't talk promisel" She clutched his wrist grimly, leaning forward to whisper the last words. As the steps stopped at the door for a breathless second Tom waited, but could see no delirium in the frantic appeal of the clear eyes. "I promise," he said reluctantly, and the door behind him opened gently.

Into the rooms stepped a plump little figure Dr. Parsons, whom Linda, in common with all the neighborhood, adored. Even tragedy could not completely dim this jovial twinkle nor iron out the smiling wrinkles about eyes and mouth. The eyes However, the real exciting part of Charlie's love life, if it may be termed that, didn't start for a number of years after Mildred divorced him. During the interim he was reported engaged to quite a number of girls, including the glamorous Pola Negri.

But the rumors proved groundless until Lita Grey came along. Then the real fun, or should I say trouble, started it spelled trouble for Charlie anyway. For she, too, was only 16. Next Sunday: Chaplin's life with lata Grey. GABRftiEtv opened wide behind silver-rimmed, round glasses at sight of Linda sitting up, with Tom close beside her on the edge of the bed.

"Well what do I see?" exclaimed the little man, hurrying forward. "Is this a patient or are you here for a friendly visit, my son? Give me your hand, young lady!" He felt her pulse while Tom slipped' guiltily to a near- by chair. "That's good. That's fine!" The little doctor patted Linda's slim brown wrist. "But sitting up? Talking?" He cocked his eye at Tom.

Linda hastened to answer for him, "He couldn't help it, doctor. I'm all right really I am. I'm going to get up in Just a second." The doctor studied her closely and she met his eyes with the clearest, brightest look she could summon. "You young fraud!" he finally said. "You're not quite all right, but you are amazingly near it.

Wonderful stamina, this new generation." He shook his head wisely. "Hard as nails. Perhaps I should say bricks. That's it bricks. This is one of them." He released the hand which he still absently held.

"You're quite right, my dear. If your head feels clear and you're not nauseated or faint, you are better on your feet doing what you can about this this sudden catastrophe. If you want to get up and dress I think you can very shortly. I want to speak to your husband a moment He made a motion with his hand, and Tom nodded. "He's wanted downstairs, but he can come right back.

Meanwhile drink this and stay where you are until he comes. I'll just step along with you, Averill." At the door Tom turned uncertainly. The doctor had dissipated his tear lest Linda be completely out of her head but he wished desperately he could linger a moment for a word of explanation. She saw his indecision and spoke with ordinary cheerful affection. "All right, Tom.

Come back as quickly as you can." But behind Dr. Parsons' back she put her finger on her mouth in urgent pantomime for silence and he saw her lips form the words, "Hurry--hurry!" Perplexed, he shut the door behind him and followed the road comfortable back of the little doctor down the hall. They had trusted her not to cry or collapse and that, thinking it only an accident.
