Sappho sang her lays of love on
some old Grecian shore, the merry

they said he'd copped the plums.

PENALTY OF TOO MUCH PEACE
Peace is a good thing, but the man

Lawrence Talbot, eighteen, shot
himself through the head today in
the woods south of Electric Park.
Talbot was employed in a bakery.
His father is a physician in Long
Lane, Mo. Beside the body was
found a long letter. It opened with
"I have resolved to kill myself. I
have thought of it several days. I
now. have the leaded revolver in my
pocket and am in my room."
Then follows this caption: "The
Story of My Life," with thirteen
pages of autobiography. He told
how he was reared by his grand grandmother,
mother, grandmother, a gentle woman, who taught
him never to fight. He did not blame
his grandmother for.it, but said that
was the trouble with him all his life;
he would not quarrel or fight. When

them George R. Lombard, and L. S.

The fellow's manner was furtive
and clandestine, and Tom was a bit
puzzled. Before he could reply, the
other drew a sealed envelope from his
pocket and laid it on the table, and
apon this he laid a ten-dollar bill.
"Whoever takes that letter ashore,"
said the man, "and finds a trustworthy

The street number which Tom could
not identify was police headquarters.
"My uncle," explained the man,
Very carefully Tom replaced the en envelope

then he leaned back and fixed the man
with a look.
"See here," he demanded with ab abrupt

to be on this yacht, anyhow?"
The man's countenance expressed
astonishment. "Hasn't Mr. Willard
told you?" he asked.
"It makes no difference what Mr.
Willard has told me I'm asking you
This abrupt manner left the man un

that Mr. Willard was in town, looking
for a young man to take the place of

wanting a job, and he put me wise to
It. Mr. Willard was in something of a
hurry, and it didn't take us long to
strike a bargain."
This explanation was illuminating.
It required but a second's reflection to
array the whole thing clear in Tom's
mind and at the same time definitely
fix the man's status.
Flint at last had struck Willard's
trail; the latter's urgent 'need to find
a 'man to take Callis' place had in
some manner come to the detective's
ears, and he had been quick to take ad advantage

had hastily picked a Central office
man that would fill the requirements.
Manifestly there had been no time to
post him; he was expected to com communicate

quarry was located hence the letter.
Tom was guided to a epeedy de decision

antagonize this man might mean the

John Callis' substitute he would be
given excellent opportunities to learn
what was going on.
"Sit down," said Tom presently. As
the man obeyed, he stood up and,
thrusting his hands into his jacket
pockets, coolly surveyed the other.
"It happens," he went on; "that I
know 'your uncle' pretty well myself."
The man gave him a quick, sharp
glance, but said nothing. "I would ad-
