A POSER FOR BILL CHANDLER
Warren Hagirerty gloated over
the headline proof to go over the
Allenbury story: "Connie Allenbury
Being Sued for Alienation of Af
fection by Mrs. William Chandler,''
and exuberantly poured himself
another drink as Allen hurried in.
"Do we bold the press for the Al-
enDury yarn 7 na asaea.
"Go ahead next edition.. The
longer we wait the better it gets!
1 can see 'em now the. Allen
burys trying to buy Gladys off!
X wish Z was there to see Chand
ler's facet First, ho lies about the
Allenbury case seeing that girl
very day! Then he lies to Gladys
mo the won't make trouble! Then
he lies to me tolls ma be loves
Gladys, so JH step to and clear
the road to Connie.
"You got to hand it to Chandler
ha always did think fast"
"But I think faster! He's played
tight into my hand) I settle the

"Will yo narrf ?"
the triple-croasing Chandler!"
"I hops It's nofcwidnipler said
Allen in a low voles, with a glance
at the deor of Maggertv'a office.
Bill and Gladys, arms lovingly en
twined, stood t" :re. Haggerty saw
"Where have you been, GladrsT"
"dancing," she replied with ahap
py smile at BUI.
"Do yon mean to say, you didn't
go to the Allenbury ?"
"No, we decided against it"
"Kill that story. Allen!" conv
manded Haggerty. When his secre
tary had departed he turned angrily
on BiU and . Gladys. "Now what
have you got to say for yourselves?
"Well, Haggerty " said Bill, "what
would you say if I told you I've
practically gotten Connie Allenbury
to agree to drop the case?"
"I'd say you were a dirty, double
"Come, William," said Gladys,
placing a hand on Bill's arm, "I
won't stay and listen to you being
"Oh, is that so!" shouted Hag
gerty. "Well, listen to mo not
four hours ago I heard your two
timing Romeo cooing sweet noth
ings into Connie Allenburys ear!"
Bill told me all about that" aaid
Gladys pityingly. "That was tech
nique. But you wouldn't know about
Haggerty had a difficult time
swallowing his rage. "Bill, why
didn't you tell me you'd been seeing
Connie Allenbury? All Gladys had
to do was to bust In that houae "
"Yes! And get our names smear
ed all over your paper!" said
"If I'd told you, you'd have spoil
ed all my good work," explained
Bill like you did tonight barg
ing In after I'd almost convinced
her to drop the suit Believe me,
Warren, this Is the bast way. The
Allenburys are giving a party to
morrow night, and I'll be there and
get her to drop the suit unless
you decide to break In again."
. Yoifre too obvious, warren,"
aid Gladys. "Bill knows best"
- Haggerty's jealousy was more en
flamed than ver at Gladys's cham
Elonshlp of Bill against him, and
e set himself to out-think Bill and
outsmart him. The result appeared
in but a single copy of the Star.
At toe head of the society column
-was an item, to tbejffect that J.
B.-Allenbury and, his, daughter Con.
'ale were sailing after the party for
four monthsr tour of ths world."
-Accompanying them on this cruise,"
continued the Item, "will .be Con

Sjaviti j a permanent wave. She sels
lad the paper from his hands. After
. watching the rage spread over her
Vacs, as she read, Haggerty left
hurriedly. At the Star office, he
