"1-vfe Jriit her In charge of the fctittAh M the dressing-room, who hfts t&keii her Into a small salon, which 1 Is empty. She is very much upset. Go down to her at once." He caught Laurie's arm, as she Stayed, almdst fainting in her relief, "Steady!" he said gently. "You fntttta't give way. Wait for me downstairs. 1 won't be long." AS she hurried out, trembling, she Saw Hex Moore advancing on Jimmy Dallas with murder in his eyes. Gladys was weeping quietly In the simple, unrestrained misery of a tired child. The tears rained down in a curtain. She had evidently changed her clothes before her flight the night before. She wore a light blue muslin frock and a thin crepe coat over It, and a darker blue crochet cap on her glorious curls. The dress and coat were crumpled, and looked sorry finery. Her whole aspect i^as bedragled, like a flower that someone has broken off its stem and flung away. She had lost all her defiance; the note of gay selfishness had gone. There was no trace of sullen resistance In the exquisite, tear-drenched face. Laurie took her In her arms, thanking the dressing-room attendant and intimating that she could go. The little salon led out of a writing-room. Nobody was likely to disturb them at this late, or. rather early hour. "Glad—Glad! My little one, don't cry!" soothed Laurie, like n mother. "You've nothing to cry about now. I've found you, darling; that's all that matters. You're quite safe with me. And Rex Is here. Rex found you, Glad. He's wonderful. I'm so happy. I can think of nothing now that you're safe." The girl cried a little more, but not for long. In the atmosphere of love and selfless devotion with which her sister had always surrounded her, she soon recovered herself. But It was a stricken soul that looked out of the grey-blue eyes. Glad's heart had been sorely wounded, but her self-assurance had received a more crushing blow still. She had .thought herself so strong, so independent. She had Imagined she could have plenty of fun, and not pay for it. She had put her faith In man in the shape of Jimmy Dallas. And she had had a nasty tumble from the height of romance and adventure into the mire of crass reality. "Laurie, I'm so wretched!" she said, in a voice hoarse from fatigue and fright. "I thought he loved me. I was crazy about him. And now you'll hate and despise me. And I loathe myself for being such a fool." "Don't talk like that, Glad!" said Laurie. And now her level-headedness revealed itself, and she spoke in a quiet, business-like way. "Everything is all right. I have seen Mr. Dallas, and I know that he tricked you into coming here with him, and that you went away last night because you found him out. And in some wonderful way that I don't understand Rex found you." "Laurie, he can do something to me—I can't tell you what!" Glad confessed, shaking In a sudden paroxysm of fear and shame. "When I'm with him, I can't even think of myself. I didn't know what I was doing. Now it seems It can't have been me who came here with him,'; and lied to you, and made poor! Nelly so miserable, by telling her she must keep my secret." "Never mind, darling," said Laurie, "It's all right now." But Gladys had to unburden her poor little heart. "Now I know I never believed in him at all," she repeated in a strangled voice. "I just wanted to be with him—anyhow. It was all my fault, Laurie. I led him on to think that I knew what he meant. And I thought I did. "But—when we were back again here last night, after the show and the supper—I Just knew that I had been all wrong. I didn't want just a good time. I didn't want to be with him—anyhow. I'm afraid I made a silly scene. I knew what I'd done and I went quite dotty, I think. He tried to make me stay, and I ran away." Laurie sat with her sister's hands clasped in hers. She did not look at Glad. "What did you do. darling?" "I don't know. It was very late, y<?U know. * ha d to get a porter to let me out of the hotel. But fi wasn't daik long. I got to the river and I thought I'd throw myself in You see, I'm crazy about Jimmy and I didn't want to live any longer. I Just didn't. "But I was frightened and people looked at me so queerly. Oh, Laurie there were such dreadful people wandering about by the river! I felt like I did when i was 111 in Sydney 'I think I must have had fever." "But all today?" Laurie asked. "What have you been doing?" "Wandering about, I think. I sat in a pretty park for hours. There were lots of children playing about. They were so sweet." "What have you had to eat?" "Nothing. I found I'd left my bag at the hotel. I hadn't even a handkerchief!" And Gladys gave a shrill little laugh that tore her sister's heart. "I didn't want food, anyhow. I walked about the streets until it was dnrk. I looked in the shops. Oh, Laurie, the shops are too lovely, aren't they?" This was a touch of the real Gladys, and Lauile smiled. Then Gladys began to cry again, from sheer weakness. "When it was dark, I didn't know what to do," she said. "I went into a big church somewhere; there was a service going on, and such lovely music. But I felt terrible when It was over and they shut the doors. "And in the end I thought the only thing to do was to come back to the hotel and get Jimmy to give me some money to get back to England with. I found my way somehow—I mot a mnn who spoke English—and just before I got to it, I came across Rex Moore. He was almost immediately outside. That seemed to be the end of everything." (Copyright, 1935, Ooralie Stanton) Rex Moore has a serious shock, tomorrow. Fugitive From Prison Captured FORT WORTH, Sept. 13. (O>)~ 'You can't beat the game," concluded L. h/. Miller, 30, today as he waited in Tarrant county jail for prison agents to take him back to the state penitentiary from whence he escaped on July 4. "When you're shot, and broke and wanted in a penitentiary, you haven't a chance," he added. "I found that out when I tried to get back to Huntsville." Miller, arrested here yesterday with a 20-year old girl, dressed In men's clothing, said he wanted to go back to clear his family name. He already had written a sister and a friend in Paris, Texas, that he was going back to Huntsville, he declared. He was building a platform in the prison ball park for a Fourth of July celebration when he felt the urge— and walked away. In Denver he decided to return and caught a freight train. There he met the girl— although he didn't know she was a girl until they reached Amarillo. He said he worked for a week in a hospital there, trying to get enough money to go to Huntsville. Finally he quit his job and came to Fort Worth. He is under a three- year sentence from Fayette county for Burglary.
