Acpleton and Company WNU Servlco) THE STORY CBAKl'lsn V.--Trailing- TVentzal and his assistant. Doctor SchaKner. Hgth- erwcll overhears a conversation which gives him n clew to the location of the Wentzel house. Ha li convinced the doctor Is concerned In Mra. White's disappearance, and arranges to go to his house, with COKgeshall, who evidently k n o w s the doctor. CHAPTER VI Two quiet-looking men, capped and goggled for motoring, were In the car next morning, one acting as chauffeur, the other In the tonncan. Mr. Well! "If Anyone Took It From Her, You May Depend They Had to Flflht for Itl" would have been called "Doctor Wells" by any student of physiognomy, without the least doubt: his shell glasses, turned Into a pince-nez, his somewhat formal and old-fashioned cutaway coat, his little black bag, the stiff mustache that transformed his mouth, would have made an assisting nurse out of a woman who looked the part much less than Coggeshall. They drove In silence through the city, out of It, Into the suburban district of New Jersey. Each was plunged In his thoughts. The two men. as the trees and fields appeared, spoke briefly of their color and freshness, but the woman sat pale and silent, nerving herself, obviously, for some coming shock or strain. At length they turned Into a gateway and curved along a winding drive. "You've got that whistle, Coggeshall?" Mr. Wells asked suddenly. "Yes, sir." "In case anything prevents me from using my own, blow It as hard and as often as yon can. I really don't think It will be at all necessary, you know, but come right along, both of you, In case. These people aren't out for murder. They're badly scared, as It Is. If Wentzel knows where she Is, this will settle It, I think. Do you know him, Coggeshall?" "I've seen him once, sir." "But not Schaffner?" "No, sir, never." "All right Remember yonr names. And mine. You might Just say 'doctor*--It's easier." "Yes, sir. I'll remember." "You're not frightened, Coggeshall?" "Yes, sir, but It doesn't matter." The man In tho tonnoau gave a short laugh. "That's the stuff, miss," he Bald. "She'll do, doctorl" t They drew up before a comfortable, rambling country house with several outbuildings. In front of a square, brick tomb, wlndowles, stood a large sign: "Explosives I Keep away I" On another, "No smoking; this meant you 1" warned the careless. But the main house was like any other, only perhaps a little less tidy and comfortable. The doctor stepped out briskly and rang the bell, his attendant at his Bide. "Doctor Schaffner?" he asked of the gray-haired woman who opened the door. "This IB Doctor Jarvl3. I have brought a nurse with me." "Oh, yea, sir," she said In a fatigued, listless voice, "he'U be down. If you'll excuse me--Just step In. I know he expected some one--" She left them In a vaguely furnished hall, half office, half sitting room. Open doors to left and right showed dark linoleum floors; a gas range stood oddly In what would have been the drawing room; opposite, two long tables covered with dozens of little square pans filled a possible library. A strong, pungent odor floated ont of a back room, from which an elderly man In a black rubber apron peered curiously at tliera, a glass pipkin In ono hairy band. . As they stood staring about them, steps sounded on the stairway and Doctor Schaflner came down, leaning frankly over the banister to get a quick sight of them. "Why I It's not . . . What do yon want?" he said abruptly, striding toward them. "Doctor Jarvls," Bald his guest, la, a pleasant, low voice. "I found that Miss Ungstrom could get off last night, after all, and come friends of mine were coming down this way, so they brought ns. I thought you'd be pleased If we made a little time." "Yes, yes, Indeed. Doctor Wentret will be delighted," said Schaflner. 1 I--this was rather a surprise, doctorl tfrleiids, yon sayT I had--we bad planned to meet you--bat no doubt It's all right." He extended his hand and Doctor Jarvls shook It heartily, though it yraa as cold ae a flab and very nearly as Urn p. The doctor Is upstairs." ha said. THE FEATHERHEADS By Oiborne WEU.GEE! HA\JE YOU LOCKED "WE CEU BOOR?! DON'T STAND THERE ! ~ CALL THE POLICE IT MIGHT BE AM ESCAPED CONVICT HIDING THERE.-OR- AN'SO.FREDCY.WHEM "WAT ENEMY BAVOMET CAME T And Now, Let's See, Where Were We?

I [ should like to talk to the nurse a little, before--before--" Els voice faded out as he preceded them up the stairs. An open door at the top showed a room lined with shelves filled with hundreds of blue glass bottles, with here and there a brilliant ruby flask. Suddenly they became aware of an excited voice behind the door at the end of the hall. A man with a pronounced German accent was explaining something angrily. "But yesl But yes I I tell you, yes!" he shouted. "Led me cggsplaln to you, for heffen's sake! It Is not money-- If you gave me a mlll-I-on, I could do no morel Gan no voman have batlence, effer?" Schaffner went hastily up to the door and, knocking gently four times, opened It 'Jnrvls Is here, doctor," he said softly. "Go In there, please," he added, turning to Coggeshall and point- Ing to a door on his right Turning to obey him, she felt Mr. Wells' hand pulling her skirt, and as the door opened and a pale, plumplsh man with red, Inflamed eyes advanced to them, she was swept past him, close to Mr. Wells, Into the room. An angry growl from the men and a rush were checked, together, by the maid's walling cry. "Oh, Mrs. White I Oh, madam t Is It really you? Oh, what, what happened?" 'Look out, I've got yon covered 1" cried Mr. Wells warnlngly, one hand In his pocket. "What's all this, professor? What have you done to Mrs. White?" The plump man turned a confused face on his assistant "But who Is this?" he asked huskily. 'Here Is not Jarvls! I haf nefTer seen this man!" "He said he was Jarvls," Schaffner replied sulkily. "God knows who he Is I But It's just as I told you, doctor, you can't do this kind of thing. I warned you It was a mistake. Are you from Mr. White?" "Mr. White Is 111 In bed," said Mr. Wells briefly. "I want to know whether Mrs. White wishes to return to him or whether she Is here by her own desire. That's nil. And I want her to tell me so, herself." Doctor Wentzel fell backward Into chair outside the door. He snnk his head In bis hands, and muttered something In a low, husky voice. Doctor SclmfTner shrugged his shoulders and leaned against the wall. Perhaps Mr. Motherwell was justified of his much discussed flair;'perhaps he was not In any case, after one look at the two men, be deliberately turned his back on them and walked Into the room. By the side of the clumsy double bed Coggeshall knelt, her head burled In the bedclothes. She was sobbing quietly, but quite uncontrollably. Moth- erwell'B eyes, fastened on the bed, spread wide apart In frank amazement and horror. Inscrutable, usually, of feature, his month hang open weakly, like any street starer's. The face of the woman who lay In the bed showed Inflamed and sunken eyes, tightly closed, In a face so drawn and white that the sL-In appeared faintly greenish In comparison with the linen pillow. The cheeks and forehead were lined with numberless fine wrinkles; the Ups were hardly colored. But the dreadful part of.her, the thing 1 that held the eye shocked and fascinated at once, was the hair that framed her face. For it poured and waved over the pillow, a shining flood of emerald green I Like vivid, swarming snakes It colled and curled around her, and between the tendrils of It her ashen, pain-lined face was set In a mask of despair--the mask of Medusa, he thought, with a sudden shudder, as the horrid likeness jumped to his mind 1 . That emerald hair was not dull and lifeless, like seaweed, but vivid and glistening, strong and thick at the roots, planted low around the forehead. Its glossy strength seemed to have sucked all the vitality out of the body from which It grew. It was a nightmare of perverted beauty, a mockery of woman's charm. "Good G--d, Schaffner," he muttered, "what's the matter with her?" "I don't know," the other answered simply. "Wentzel doesn't know. Nobody knows." "Can't you--Isn't there anything?" "He's been working on It since Wednesday--he hasn't slept six hours. Nobody In this country can touch him; he begins where men over here leave off. Who's to help him? It's too awful. Is that a maid of hers?" Motherwell nodded, his eyes fastened on that dreadful masklike face. "I see she's got hold · of her hand. It probably put her to sleep for a bit. Come out here and I'll tell you about It--are you a doctor, by the way?" "No," said Motherwell. "Not that it matters much, really. He knows more than most doctors, you know. Only we felt--I felt, for he's lost his head completely, Mr.--" "Wells." "Yes, Wells. I felt that we simply must have some alibi--some certificate, you know--something--' 1 He yawned heavily. "Keep a good wntch on her, will you?" he said. "I'll be within call. Come this way, will you, Mr. Wells?" They went softly across the hall. In the chair where they hud left him sat Professor Wentzel, hla head sunk on bis chest, snnrlnR. To be continued next week. GET YOUR Stieff Saver at factory prices from STURMER. 11-7 Easton, Md.

Feet are the foundation of the body and they carry all its weight. That is a big job for a small foundation.- Tho feet are also great shock absorbers. Many of the jolts and jars the human frame would otherwise receive, are absorbed by the feet. They need special care because of the important work they have to do. "Look after the foundations" is a good motto, not only for builders, but also for all who desire health and happiness--who wish to avoid the weary feeling and the weary look. When you think of feet, remember that the Osteopathic Physician thinks and works in terms of foundations. DR. E. F. WITHERS, Osteopathic Physician, Phone 92 226 S. 3rd St.. DENTON, MD.
