library. There she found Uriah De-

had told her Joy over aDd over to her-

waa sitting reading the Bible. It
seemed moat appropriate that on this

A knock at the door caused her to

At the sight of Mrs. Curtl* she rnae

Tonnlbel hadn't even heard the last
words. She fled down the stairs and
Into the library, panting for breath.
Her cup of happiness was full to the
brim, now that Edith had come back
to her. She halted, dosed tha door
and ran Into the room.
“Edle, mummy dear I" she called
softly, ao overcome she conld not
raise her vole*.
Then Uriah Devon stepped from be-
hind the grate-screen and earn* to-
“Daddy," (jried the girl, “whera'a

Uriah dropped tha bag and laid the
revolver on a chair. He had never
aeon such a vision of loveliness. The
masses of dark curls flung over the
flimsy dressing-gown, the small, bare
ankles peeping from the soft blue slip-
pers sent an unholy desire for pos-
session over him. What a fool he had
been to promise her to a fellow like
“Tony,” he faltered hoarsely, "Tv#
been a dog to you all these years.
I’ve come to tell you I lore you, kid,
more'n anybody In all the world."
Tonnlbel dodged bis outstretched
arms and flames of anger leapt Into
bar eye* at hi* words.
“But my mother.” she exclaimed,
trying not to cry out.
"Never mind her, Tony, never mind
any on*," commanded Uriah. "The
fact Is, I ain't your daddy at all. Pm
not any relation to yoa—"
Then he snatched at her and, as
the tried to flea from him, eaught her
In hla arms. One long cry I aft her
llpe and Edith Devon heard It plainly
out there under the rose bush. How
many times ah* had fled to an appeal

You*va Killed Him!”
like that from the same llpe I Tn an-
other moment ahe was In the room be-
fore Uriah's red mouth had touched
Tony's face. The gtrl saw her and
“Mummy! Mummy darling! Moth-

The words were strangled In

"Take your hands offen Tonnlbel,
Uriah." ahe hissed. “You dirty, lying

Drop 'er, I say, Uriah Devon."
At the other end of the room a tall
boy aro«e out of the shadows; Tony'*
scream* had aroused Reginald Brown.
He stood swaying, rubbing hit head,
trying to remember where he wan.
"I’m done with you. Ede," he heard
Devon utter. “I'm done with you for-
ever. Tony's min*. I’ve Juat told 'er
I wasn't her daddy. I waa a fool to
say Reggie Brown could have >r. He
can’t; HI have 'er myself."
"Put 'er down," gritted Edith un-
der her breath.
Almost lifeless, Tony was hanging

You'vo killed him, Edle darling!"
Still th* woman didn't aay a word.
She only gated at the speaker ta-
seel ugly. Tony snatched th* gun
from her hand.
"Edle," ah* groaned. "Mummy,
sweet, go right away, before any an*
comes. You've killed Uriah. Oa
away, go away, I aay."
She grasped Mrs. Devon’s arm and
burned her toward the porch door.
"Run," hissed the girt. "Get back
to th* boht quick. Don't ever aay a
word to any one." Then Tony spied
the little black bag she'd seen ao of-
ten on the Dirty Mary. Picking It
up she thrust It Into her mother**
hands. “Here! Take this, too. OB,
mummy; kiss roe, kiss met"
She flung herself upon tha woman
frantically, kissed the pallid, Imcos-
tive face again and again and then
shoved Edith out upon tha dark porch.
It was whll* Tony's whole attention
was centered on her beloved that Reg-
inald Brown seised th* opportunity
to sneak stealthily from tb* room.
The nervous women la th* upper
part of the bouse had not expected
to hear the piercing scream that cam*
to their ears, and, as It was repotted
more than once with sucB terrible In-
sistence. Mrs. Curtl* followed by
Katherine, fled down tb* stain.
Tony heard them coning, and n
surging love for her mother brought
a resolution full-horn from the loyal
young heart. She waa standing over
tha p rout rate Uriah when Sarah Cub
tls and her daughter rushed madly In.
"I shot my father,” gasped Tonnlbel,
looking at Mr*. Curtis, her Angers
locked tightly over tha bandit of tha
"Where's your motherT” cam* from
Mrs. Curtis' lips.
Tonnlbel didn't answer for a min-
ute. then she shook her head.
"She hasn't been here!" she swal-
lowed hard and continued: "Twa

Katherine took a long breath of ex-
“Don't yon know you’ll be arrested,
you wicked glrir ahe ejaculated.
"And executed I” tnterpoaed Mrs.
Curtis. '‘Katherine, call the police."
As Katherine made for th* tele-
phone, a motor car driving up ta th*
house stayed her action. Her hand
dropped from the receiver when Phil-
ip MacOBuley came In. For a moment
ha didn’t see Devon. With a quick,
flashing glance, ho noticed how pallid
and deathlike hla Tony was.
“What have you two been saying ta

tones. “I suspected something like
this, and—and got away as soon as 1
could. . . . Darling girl, don't look
at me like that.”
Mrs. Curtis was fully herself now.
"The wicked girl baa shot her own
father," she told Captain MacCautey,
making an effort to keep the satis-
faction out of her voice. "Thera he
la dead on the floor!"
Then Philip saw Devon. In horri-
fied amazement and disbelief his gaz*
came back to Tonnlbel.
"Darling," he said, and he went
swiftly to her. “I don't believe a
word of It It's all a lie!"
Tony flung out her hand.

with a thrill that Captain MacCauley

tically every large city, small town,
village and hamlet In North America.

ing results and have pronounced It

Tens of thousands of men and wom-
en of all ages in all walks of life, af-
flicted with stomach, liver and kidney
disorders, some of them of long stand-
ing, as well as thousands of weak, thin,
nervous men and women apparently on
the verge of collapse, have testified
that they have been fully restored ta
their uormal weight, health and
strength by Its use.
Restored ta Health.
Still others, who seemed fairly well,
yet who suffered with Indigestion,
headaches, shortness of breath, dlzxy
spells, sour, gassy stomachs, coated
tongues, foulness of breath, constipa-
tion, bad complexion, loaa of appetite,
sleeplessness at night and of terribly
dejected, depressed feelings, state that
they have been entirely relieved of
these distressing symptoms and re-
stored to health and happiness by tha'
use of Tanlac.
