There are two sorts of people who

to consider the taste of the friend it
is to be sent to.

fasten itself, vampire like, on the life

He strode down the street, feeling
that the crowded cars would stifle him,
and longing for the sense of physical
motion and the stinging air against

his face. When he reached his rooms
he found on the table an invitation
from Mrs. Dane, a prominent society
hostess, inviting him to attend a din dinner
ner dinner she was giving that night.
"That doesn't fit in with the load of
work I must get through with before
office hours tomorrow." Wearily he
laid a package of business papers on
the table and rested his read in his
hands. "What does it all amount to
what does life amount to? he ques questioned
tioned questioned despondently. "These people
who invite me do not really care for
me. It is merely because I fill in and
make an agreeable dinner guest, and
for that I have practically given up
my old friends."
He realized that his present mood
was the reaction from exhilaration of
conquest which the past year of al almost
most almost spectacular success had given
him.
"I'd like to chuck the whole thing
and go back. If only I coSld have a
talk with Alice in the old way, I'd feel
myself again." He sat up with new
energy. "I wonder if she'd let me
come?"

There was need to look in the tele-

; phone book for the familiar number.

With breathless suspense he waited

j while the landlady called Miss Glea-

son to the 'phone, and at the sound of

; her voice his heart began to pound

boyishly. She was serenely gracious,

; yet he detected a note of surprise as

he asked permission to call. Then she

spoke of the roses, and added:

"I can't begin to describe my delight

over that quaint old English book. It

filled a long-felt want for the posses

sion of a real first edition." Mechan

ically he responded, questioning him

self the while: "What book? Did

make a mistake and send Miss Fen-

ton's Christmas gift to Alice? In

! my dogged weariness I must have giv

en the dealer the wrong address." He
thought of Marguerite's demand of the
best as her due, and a sense of impish

joy swept over him at the mistake

which had defeated the usual order.

He sent a messenger boy with

note to Mrs. Dane containing regrets

for the dinner, then dressed and hur

ried to the lodging house on Fleet

street.

"Shurre, and you're a stranger

these days, Mr. Landers," remarked
the maid who opened the door. As

she went upstairs to call Miss Glea

son her round Irish face reminded him

of a cheery full moon. He glanced at

And For Three Summers Mrs. Vin-

cent Was Unable to Attezd to
Any of Her Housework.

Pleasant Hill, N. C "I suffered for
three summers," writes Mrs. Walter
Vincent, of this town, "and the third and
last time, was my worst.
1 had dreadful nervous headaches and
prostration, and was scarcely able to
walk about. Could not do any of my
housework.
I also had dreadful pains in my back
and sides and when one of those weak,
sinking spells would come on me, I
would have to give up and lie down,
until it wore off.

1 was certainly in a dreadful state of
health, when I finally decided to try

Cardui. the woman's tonic, and I firmly

believe I would have died if I hadn't
taken it.

After r began taking Cardui, I was

greatly helped, and all three bottles re

lieved me entirely.

1 fattened up, and grew so much

stronger in three months, I felt like an

other person altogether."

Cardui is purely vegetable and gentle-

acting. Its ingredients have a mild, tonic

effect, on the womanly constitution.
Cardui makes for increased strength,
improves the appetite, tones up the ner nervous
vous nervous system, and helps to make pale,
sallow cheeks, fresh and rosy.
Cardui has helped more than a million
weak women during the past 50 years.
It will surely do for you, what it has
done for them. Try Cardui today.

Ocala People Should Learn to Detect

The symptoms of kidney trouble
are many. Disordered kidneys often
excrete a thick, cloudy, offensive

scalding. The back may ache, head headaches

the victim is often weighted down by
a feeling of languor and fatigue.

CHAPTER IX.
Un Enfant Perdu.
Whether Mr. Flint attached any par particular
ticular particular importance to anything in Tom
Phinney's recital, Van Vechten was
unable to determine, either from the
detective's fixed expression (or ab absence
sence absence of expression), or the few ques questions
tions questions he asked w hen Tom had finished.
These interrogations were aimed sole solely
ly solely at aiding Tom to remember the mo mo-torboat's
torboat's mo-torboat's occupants; but excepting the
suppositious servant and the sandy sandy-complexioijed
complexioijed sandy-complexioijed man now identified as
John Callis Tom's description was
exceedingly vague.
Before leaving, Mr. Flint eald to Van
Vechten:
"I am liable to be looking you up al almost
most almost any minute of the day or night.
I expect to be pretty busy, but it is im impossible
possible impossible to foretell precisely in what
way my efforts will be directed. May
I count on you spending as much of
your time here as you can?"
The young man nodded. "If I am
not here I shall leave word so you
may know where to find me."
Tom, after the detective was gone,
reverted to a topic which he had
broached earlier in the day.
"Are you going to use the motor for
a while, Ruddy? I want to take a run
down to Maiden Lane if you're not."
The other roused sufficiently from
his puzzling reflections to give the
speaker a questioning look. "Maiden
Lane?" he repeated.
Tom amplified.
"Chap down there wealthy dia diamond
mond diamond importer was wanting a skip skipper
per skipper for his steam yacht. Brownlow's
his name met him at the Payne Payne-French's
French's Payne-French's last week. He was asking
me about it; suppose he heard that I
was interested in yachting. I have a
master's certificate, you know; that's
one job Lean hold down."
Tom was moody, and for the time
being Van Vechten laid aside his own
perplexities.
"So," he said, "you are still deter determined
mined determined to go to work?"
Tom nodded. '"Most of the time you
ckapswere talking I was thinking the

whole thing over. It's really not like likely
ly likely I shall ever meet that girl, Ruddy;
it's too deuced improbable to hope
such a thing. Just the same, I mean
to get busy. I want to get away. I
want to feel that I am doing something
worth while. I can run old Brown Brown-low's
low's Brown-low's yacht just as well as anybody I
might recommend, if not better, and
I'm going after the berth myself. Can
I refer him to you?"
"Certainly," said Van Vechten.
"Take the car for as long as you want
it; if I have to go anywhere I'll use a
taxi. Send Mr. Brownlow to me if he
wants, any recommendations of your
qualifications to handle a j acht, steam
or sail. And you would be safe in men mentioning
tioning mentioning Fred Carteret, too. Good luck,
Tom."
And Mr. Tom Phinney departed to
call on the wealthy diamond importer.
Left thus to himself, Van Vechten
took from his pocket the key which
Mr. Flint had given him, and sat con contemplating
templating contemplating it for some minutes. By
and by he returned itj to his pocket,
then pushing back his 'chair, rose and
feli to pacing to and fro the width of
the lounging-room. As he passed each
of the big plate glass windows they
were screened; however, at this sea season
son season he would glance across the street
at the silent house. At last he halted
and, hands in pockets, stood staring at
the dingy facade, his mien pensive.
"Why not?" his thoughts presently
crystallized. "Now is as good as any
time. It's too late in the day to under undertake

nothing to do but wait. Lord wait!
It would be a relief to bve the uni universe

ears. After Flint's yarn, it will ba in interesting

Queer, queer."
Now perhaps he forgot his promise
to Flint to leave word respertinj his
movements, or else he did net consid consider

street of sufficient consequence to be
mentioned; however that mar be, he
left the club without a word to any anybody.

the indescribably littered and lty
backyard of Number 1313. In truth,
the place was no more than a small
brick-paved court. It was walled all
about, and a short flight of stone steps
leading downward to a basement door
bore the only evidence of recent use.
Here, patently, was the door to which
the key belonged.
He unhesitatingly went down the
half-dozen or so steps, and when he

key into the keyhole, the door swung
open at Ms touch. Besides being un unlocked,

Kuapfc! Shouldn't think Flint

-is immediate conclusion. It did not
occur to him that somebody already
might be within, but contented himself
with the belief that the detective had
neglected to make fast the door after
his visit Sunday afternoon.
Settling the incident thus to his own
satisfaction, he entered and closed the
door behind him.
He glimpsed into the kitchen, and

promptly witndrew'with a shudder. Uir

And scarcely had he arrived at the
first floor than his strained attentive attentive-ness

was Unmistakable one that brought
him up short a sound of human

carry on a conversation?
He recalled the unlatched door;
manifestly whoever was inside, with
him had entered by means of key,
precisely as he had been equipped to
do, and had neglected to fasten the
door after them. At any, rate, the mat

he saw that he was an intruder, he
would quietly withdraw.
When they first startled him the
voices were so low that .e was unable

were. Then of a sudden he received
a fresh 6hock of surprise. Cna of ths
voices rose in a note of anger.
It was a woman's nay, a girl's.
And now he was able to locata the
source of the sounds. They cams from
somewhere in the second story and to toward
ward toward the rear of the house. With in infinite

The voices sounded incessantly, first

"Go, go, go!" cried the feminine

can't imagine. Go get out cf my
sight. I don't want to hear a word you
have to say!"
At the next words Van Vechten
started so violently that, had the un unseen

their quarrel, they must have heard
him. The girl was still speaking.
