J" WHO Service ij VJWMUJUWWMWW'ffJW SYNOPSIS Xil—Coring pleads with Ernestine to leave Will and return to her parents. She hesltntco. but nn In- slpht Into Pastano's lawlessness derides her. She consents to break with Will. Next morning, realizing whnt the action would mean to him, she knows she cannot do It, and returns to Chicago and her husbnnd. With the rift In the lute closed Will hits on a new Idea for n comic strip. It Is an Immediate success. Money flows In. Ernestine's third child Is born. vContlnued from last- Wednesday.) "Well,""said Ernestine, "It nil sooms very mysterious, font I'll come. I'll be there nt ten to twelve." "Thank you, Mrs. Todd. And, please, I wns to nsk you to come by the Clark street cur, mid leuve the cur nt Ontario street, instead of coming In your own car." The crisp voice was disconnected. Ernestine put the receiver In place wonderiiiKly. Well, there wns no nn- swer to her questions until she was there. She loft the street cnr at Ontario street nnd walked south. The doorman nt the hank greeted her with a stiff nod, left his place and walked back through the big downstairs room. Ernestine followed him. He paused at the foot of the wide stairs that led to the balcony. "The last door, on the left side of the balcony," he said to her In n low voice, and Ernestine went up the stairs, .half frightened with this secrecy, walked forward again, toward the street, passed Indifferent employees nnd opened an unmarked door, entered n private oflice, and closed the door behind her. Ruby Pastano was standing by the green-curtained windows, looking down into the street through n tiny slit he held open with his linger. He turned to her. "Ernestine 1" "Mr. Pastano!" She did not know whether she was relieved or more frlghinned. At least, here was sope one fnmiilar. "W)il you shake hands with me?" He cnme to her, big, sober, non-committal and offered her his hand. Krnes- tine laid her hand in his big thick palm and noticed, as she did so, how extraordinarily long his fingers were, as he took her hand In both of his. • "I've been wondering, all the way over here, who It was that had sent for me," she said nervously. "I did not expect to see you—I don't know what I expected. I had a dreadful dream last night, and I've been frightened and nervous all day." "Sit down, won't you?" the voice, silky, soft, as always, had In it n note of gentleness that went to Ernestine's heart, In spite of her formed and set prejudices against Ruby Pastano. He drew up for her a chair upholstered In red pigskin, and she snt down, upright, ready for flight, on the, edge of it. He seated himself before her on the empty desk. "I didn't want you to come to my office, and I didn't want to go to your home, but I felt that I had to see you. Ernestine," he said gently, "do you believe that I am Will's friend?" Ernestine felt that the occasion was momentous. She felt herself thrust back from the ordinary conventional judgments of her class and generation to something more fundamental. She answered naturally, honestly: "Yes," she said, "yes, I do." "Good," he said. "I've not done many unselfish things in my life, although I've done plenty that were dangerous—hut for my own gain. But I'm going to do something for you now. I'm going to give you a chance to do something for somebody else. All last night I couldn't sleep, knowing that the plans that are coming forward today would hurt you. I knew that I must work some change if it were possible. I wanted to take Into account the existence of little Ernestine, know- Ing that I must at least give her her chance. . . ." "What do you mean, Ruby?' she asked, her thoughts turning to Will. Mow could he be Involved with this man? lie had never had any contact with Pastano except the free contact of friendship. He had never had a favor from him. "No," he said, reading her thought, "not Will—hut Lorlng—your sister's husband, Lorlng Hamilton. Did you know that he is ruinedV" "Lorlng—ruined? But how?" "lie will tell you, If he is fool enough to talk, that I have ruined him. I tell you that he ruined himself. He's in debt, he's In trouble, nnd he's under the shadow of an Indictment—for bribing witnesses, In federal court—serious business, Ernestine." "You mean—the grand Jury? Hut how did this happen? Tell me, please." "I cannot tell you everything. It's H long story, and involved, and, besides, it is unwise and iiiiuccessury. I win give you a few fuels. A wuuk ago today your Imnhei'-lii-law was secure. Ills security wns dependent on his obedience, llu hud placed himself deliberately In a position where he hail to do ns he wns told. In return for all that he had—and wanted. A week ago he decided to tn!;o a stop that bad been In his mind for some time. I knew that it was there. I was expecting it. Lorlng decided that he would break faith with me, cash in on his knowledge and cut the ties, lie was thirsting for the water that he carried, but could not drink." Tin paused, and the red oT old nn.ser burned in his t-hpplis. "I hold notrs on him as security for business thsit he transacted through his oflice—properties I could not afford to have In my name. He thought I would not dare to soil his notes, he having so much Information about me. No use going Into the ugly details. lie woke up too late to find out thnt his transactions \rero wjtli me—the company he wns denting with was mint 1 — he sold my property to mp. It wns I who bought from him what he had no right to sell. I stopped payment on the checks he hold, I had his notes, nnd he was holding—the Imp." "J'ut how could you? That's not right. You couldn't do that." ''Why not?" nskeil I'nstnno. "I was clovprer than he. What could he do? What could ho sny? I called In his notes. Either ho had to pay me, or I would sell them to his hank for discount. He put In his stone stock— sound property—and recovered his notes. Then he found nil his debts due on the same day. He lost seventeen accounts In one afternoon—business taken right out of his olllee. lie sold his car nnd yesterday he mortgaged his house. And today—unless It's stopped—he's going to be indicted." Ernestine got to her feet. "nut, Uuby—how can you do this to Lorlng? He does know things about you—" "Very little," answered I'nstnno evenly. "Fragments—nothing whole. Pnrt of this deal—part of that. His own activities will shine much worse In court than his connections with mo. Do you think I am fool enough to put myself In jeopardy with a man like Lorln??" Ernestine made n little nionn, and he began to speak quickly, vehemently, with a strange sternness and justice In his face. "He came to me—he sought the connection—he was eager for any work. He offered to do things for me that I wouldn't let him do. lie was well paid, nnd he didn't play the game. Ills BURT NEWS. Rev. S. H. Aten preached at Ringsted Sunday evening.

He wished to exploit her— desert her. So he schemed and planned. But you cannot get into the whirlpool and then out apiin—" Ernestine, looking at him, felt the sucking breath of the vortex, what have I to ilo with this?" "But she asked. "What can I do for Lorlng? You haven't told me this without some purpose." "First let me show you why I can do nothing for him myself—it is easier to start a landslide than to stop It. It was my intention—no, my determination—to ruin him, to have him debarred, disgraced, sent to the penitentiary, if I could. It seemed necessary. Here, all about me, are these young men—lieutenants—gangsters, If you like the newspaper word better. They are my army. We must have loyalty In any army. We must have obedience. Loynlty and obedience, first, because they have confidence in me, that I am wise, that I will take care of them while they stay with mo, that I am competent to meet nil situations. But if a man is disloyal, nil the rest must see what becomes of him. Loyalty, first, because of confidence; second, because of fcnr. When admiration falls, fear remains."

It is a season rich in rewards for all who have the stamina to stand by America. This country is, and has been for some time past, in the soundest economical con* dition of any country in the world. Nothing can effectually stem the course of her progress. Neither doubt nor pessimism can cloud the evidence of vitality which shines through at this time. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) does not presume to prophecy. Unfortunately there have been too many prophets and too few patrons of business during the past nine months. This company comes forward with direct and tangible evidence that industry is quickening to the new season — rousing itself to action. The industrial lubrication department of this organization reflects this activity. Manufacturing plants that were previously inactive have recently placed orders for industrial lubricants. More and more concerns which were running along at average capacity, now increase their orders for lubricants. Happily, this condition cannot be isolated. If orders for lubricants are being placed, then orders for other commodities are being placed with other concerns. That means more capital is being spent. Mark the significance of this news. It is an accurate index. It indicates that business has ploughed through the worst of the period of depression. It is time to push. It is time for industry, in general, to mobilize its forces. It is time for every man and woman in America to look squarely to the solid structure of the country, and not at the shifting fogs which doubt and pessimism create. It is time to spend — time to buy. It is time to get into stride with the new season. Standard Oil Company (Indiana) 910 South Michigan Ave., Chicago, 111, S218
