He hesitated a moment and added, "I guess you know M a r t i n s o n drove a car like yours." : A f t e r the sergeant left, I thought 'of Mrs. Ordell, still imprisoned in the cave, of her husband, Hill . B r i e f - s t r i c k e n over the belief t h a t .she wns dead. Perhaps Dnvid hnd Kmie to Mrs. Ordell now. ' I looked nl the Professor who tno-i by t h e window, stooped, tired, his pale fare set In sad line.* »? he watched puffy w h i t e cloud? l e a t h e r i n g over Old llnldy. My Sympathy nnd natural liking for him overcame my memory of Mrs. 'Ordell's request for me to tell Mob nf her Imprisonment In the rave 'and not to tell the Professor. On Impulse, 1 decided that 1 would be the one to tell lilm Ihe gbd news. 1 opened my llpa lo speak when a commotion and voices on the lodge porch atdfprri me. Sergeant Duncan entered ewort- Ing a mvman by th* arm. She »·»« a .urge, rather mm looking woman, pretty artet a lainkm. with thick, curly auburn led luir and Irish eyes. A clatter of horses' hooves accompanied their entrance and David Roberts swung off a badly lathered horse. I did not imacim t h a t David w o u l d so misuse ; horse. The Doctor came up to the lodge steps Ihree at a time. He was dirty \vlih splashed mud and dust and looked tired to the point of collaprc. "If you folks will very kindly follow me," he s.lid, "I shall take you to an tinu.Mial and impromptu nquesl. , r believe that we have the murderer, the killer who murdered F.lsip Martinson and who stubbed Mrs. Orrirll." · « » I"\AVID becan herdinp all of us nut of the lodce and up the trail, toward the stream. I spoke Susie, who lay quietly sufTerinR. "Wait, jood doR, I'll come back to you." We did not co lo the watpr hole. I was t h a n k f u l for lhat. Instead we went up the shoulder of the m o u n t a i n where the willows had od when I crawled from the passafieway. N'nw the hudics lay in a heap, prnoled hcsido a pile of damp r a r t h and rork-=. The entrance lo Ihe cave had been rnl.irued until, iy stnnpinc. one could enter the rocky l i t t l e t u n n e l w i t h comparative c.To. David and 1 entered first A f t e r tho sunshine of the outer world the- larne room of the cave leemcd very dim In spite of Ihe fnnrtlcj that slowed bravely. C'iradii.illy I lir.gan to net more llninly. Mrs. Onlell slill l«y In the hunk against Ihe wall hut looked Iriw vile «nt much happier.

H* had h(en ttandinf againa* the rncky wall, all but indiscernible in the dim liRht. He stepped forward to greet us. He was wearing a pair of faded overalls and a blue work shirt, which though umroned, were clean. His hair was slicked down with water as neatly as a school boy's. He was clean shaven and one could see that he had dressed very carefully, He came quietly to meet us. I remembered my abject terror the first time I saw the cave. Yet this man who stood before us was not at all frightening. .lust a rither small, stocky countryman with one of the saddest faces imaginable. David spoke quickly as he heard the group coming through the passageway to the cave. "Miss Curtis, this is Sum BurdicK. Mr. Rurdick saved Mrs. Ordtll's life and deserves « great deal of credit." Again confusion confounded me. Merc before me stood the man I had reason to believe might be Mrs. Ordell's assailant.

Whpn ! \v* ser these wicked women car: ryinc on their nefarious work, why shouldn't we tell the wronj;- j eri wife? | Right nmv T know of a home i n ' ] town t h a t i, slowly on its way to [ ruin. The w i f e is an exceptionally lovely person w i t h three children. A few year? ago pome gospip told her lhat her husband was connected with a girl in trouble, and she left him. She came hack, and now thp huphand is involved w i f h a young wife whn recently moved into .nnr neighborhood. The newcomer i* friendly with my friend, whn, of course, knows nothing of thr a f f a i r going on hptween the neighbor and her own husband. What possible advantage can thorp he in keeping my young friend in the dark concerning her husband'? activities? R. H. Answer: NO universal problem ran be solved with a pat answer that will fit all cases. Never have I had the presumption to claim it does: hut one solution very often will hp best in thp most number of instances. Also remember t h a t , in 8 situation involving wrongdoing, no possible solution can wipe out. or even mitigate, the sin without the sinner hirnsolf repenting and atoning, She Probably Known It should bp obvious, therefore, t h a t when as serious a transgression as adultery is involved, Ihe question of whether or not the wife is informed, or by whom, hp- comes spondarr to th* guilt. In the very va?t majority of cases, a ohilandering husband errs once. You may bp sur^ that if he is a chronic offender the wife knows all about it. though pride may keep her from admitting her knowledge. If the one-time philanderer realiz^s 'he error of his ways--as he usually does in short time--his wife is belter left in blissful ignorance. Knowing t h a t he has .-.{rayed from the straight, and narrow path once, she is bound to suspect every aberration from then on. If he come* home later t h a n usual from the office, is called out of town on business, visits his parents nr engages in any activity that takes him away from home, "vpn for a few hours, she will bp suspicious.
