He was my benefactor, some say. Well ,he gave me this house, bo gave me a sum of money in his will—but, what did I do for him?" "What did vou! Zizi prompted him. "I kept bis secrets for him—that's what 1 did! Whel he married that lovely ]ad> —when he persuaded Iter to marry him. he did it by a I lie! He made her think her father | n blackguard, when ho was that blackguard, himself—" "And what -were j'ou?" cried Zlzl, here eyes biasing. "What do you call yourself to eland by and see the lovely lady sold—and sold by- fraud to a blackguard and a brute! What excuse do you give for your conduct?" "Only that Itayuor made me." "Ah, he had a hold on you. then?" 'That he did! A straiigle-hold— as he had on many others. And when he lied to the lady, when he pretended that she must marry him or disgrace her father, her brother and herself—my hands were tied—I could do nothing." "When did Mrs. Haynor learn of her husband's deceit?" "Only a few weeks before she shot him." Zizi looked at him curiously. Dolly stood stating, her lace the picture of perplexity. She wanted to speak, but Zizi 's warning looks restrained her. "Yes." Cianhon repeated, "alio never knew about it till a mouth or so ago. Her brother now, he never knew of it—1 should say, until after Raynor was dead. You see. -Mrs. Raynor she 'd suffer anything nnd everything rather than any sorrow or trouble should touch her brother. They're a devoted pair." "And yon think Mrs. Hoynor killed her husband?" Zizi said. Cannon Bhlftecl uneasily. "I ain't got no oplnjon—for publication, miss," he said. "I 'd rather not tell what 1 think." "I should say you wouldn't!'' exclaimed Dolly, unable to keep sil- | ent another instant. I Whereupon /.izi dragged her ; away. . ! "You go' home, Dolly," she said, | "and don 't you mention one word jot nil this to a 'slngle «oul. It you 'do you'll make more trouble than ew -n Pennington Wise can clear up. Mo you promise?" "Yes, 1 promise. Zl/.i. Oh. whoever thought that old curmudgeon did it? Just to get bis money to riottth America!" miiill all that now, Dolly. ) You just run home, and go about j your own afi 'nlrs. Anil if you love Mrs. llaynor, you keep still—for her sake." | "1 Will, oh, Zizi, I will," ami i Doily obeyed orders, j Z1/.I went slowly on to the Uay- ! nor bouse. .She fun nil Bennington Wise with j Mrs. Raynor and Flnley, all In Nan's sitting room. Very grave talk was In progress and ns Zlzl entered Nan was saying: "I must stand by my confession, Mr. Wise. I must Insist that I shot my husband. 1 hope a jury will not deal with me too severely for 1 nssuru you 1 was tortured beyond the lot of most women. I never loved Mr. Raynor, I was tricked into marriage with him, I consented to It to save my father's honor and reputation and, too. to save my brother from knowledge of our father's guilt—aa I supposed. Then, when I learned that my father nau never been guilty at all, but that my husband had lied to me—can you wonder at my hatred of htm? Also, remember that he was » drug addict—nnd that when denied the morphine he craved, he became a vertiable fiend. I felt 1 must try to save him from the inevitable fate of such Indulgence, so honestly tried. But it was all too much for me. 1 almost lost my mind- perhaps I did lose my mind—" The sad face looked suddenly brighter, ns if In hope that a mental unbalance would help to exonerate her. "No, Mrs. Raynor, you haven't lost your mind—" and Zizi came In and slipped into a soat next to Nan, and took her white hand in her own two little brown ones. "You're nil right, mentally, morally and physically. Penny, here are the overshoes." From her coat pocket Zlzl produced the rubbers and handed them over to Wise. The detective took Uiem. and without n word, turned them over to look at the soles. A single nod of his head showed Zizi that he now knew all, that whatever was the story, It was final and complete. But the effect on Nancy Raynor was as distastrous as it was unexpected. She turned perfectly white, she trembled like a leaf, and had Zizi not flung an assisting arm round her, she would have fallen from her chair. "Those are my- husband's—those ate Mr. Uaynor's overshoes!" she exclaimed. "Are you sure?" asked Wise. "Of cout-oe I'm sure. He bought them about a week before he died. They are- a new motlol—he had never worn them." '"Jhls," nnd Wise held up the right one, "this Is the overshoe that made the footprint on the tloor of the sun room." "Yes," Nan almost choked—"I—1 woro them—I put them on—" (Continued In Our Next Issue) Just call 59 and we will put a heater on your Ford lu a short time.
