GERMAN DASH ON NIEMEN HALTED, PETROGRAD SAYS Sharp Engagements Reported In Auguatowo Moorland. PBTROGRAD, Feb. 20. Tho" German advance In the Nlemen nivcr region virtually has been aban: doned. It was In tills zone that a similar drive Into Poland was hatted last'' fall, and'apparently tho foe has met with as little success as an the former occasion. Complete collapse of the German cam paign In northern Poland against the fortreis of Koio Georglonsk, which pre vents an attack Upon "Warsaw -from the northwest, wns predicted today by Rus sian military experts. . Tho acrmans, however, nre engaging tho Hussion defenders sharply In the Moorland north of the Augustowo forest and on the Ossowltt road. Augustowo Is adjacent to the great O&sowltz fortress, which once before checked tho Russian Invasion. " A TALE OF LOVE, MYSTERY AND INTRIGUE i esterday. I came back by tho mall from renzanco. I had to motor CO miles to catch It." "Something has happened, of course," she went on, "something which jou are afraid to tell me. Sit up like a man, my dear -father, and let mo hav o tho truth." "Nothing fresh has happened at all," he nraured her. "It Is simply that the memory, of the day I spent at that place and thnt tho sight of Jilm has got on my nerves till I can't sleep or think of an thing else.". I "What rubbish I" sho exclaimed. "You have only seen tho place In fine weather," he continued, dropping his voice a little. "Elizabeth, jou havo no Idea what It Is really like. Yesterday morn ing r got out of tho train at Bodmin and I motored through to the village of Clavvca. After that there were five miles to walk. There's no road, only a sort of broken track, nnd for the whole of that llvo miles there Isn't even a farm building to be seen and I didn't meet a human soul. Thero was a Bort of pall of white-gray mists everywhere over the moor, sometimes so dense that I couldn't see my way, and ou could stop and llston and theio wasn't a thins to be heard, not even a shicp bell " She Uiuhud BoftI "My dear, foolish father." she mur mured, "ou don't understand what a i est cure la.

I sup pose jou got to the house at last? "Yes. I got there," continued her father. "You know wtat a bleak-looking place It is, right on the side of a bare hlll-o square, grny Btone placo Just the color of the hillside. Well. I got there and wolked In, There was Ted Mathers, half dressed, no collar, with a bottle of whisky on tho table, playing some wretched game of cards by himself.

When I came Jie sprang up, but when he saw who It was, he-ha tried to hide. He was afraid of me. "Why?" she asked. "He saia that I I -reminded him of "Absurd!" she murmured,. "Tell me, how did he look?" "Ill, wretched, paler and-thinner than ever, and wilder looking," "What did Mathers say about him? she demanded.

A man comes from the Village to sell things once a week. Mathers knows when to expect him and takes care that Wenham la not around. They are out of the world there no road, no paths, nothing to bring; even a tourist. I could have Imagined such a spot In Arizona, Elizabeth, but In England-nol" ''lias he any amusements at all?'' she Inquired. ' The hian'a hands were shaking; one more h,is eyes wept longingly toward the cupboard. . "Ha has made-a doll' he said, "carved It out of a peet of wpod and dressed It In oddments from his ties.

He has made some thing there which looks like, a scaffold. The doll was hanging by a piece of strips from the gallowa Elizabeth.! my God, but H was Hke you!" ha cried, suddenly drooping his head upon his arms. For a moment, a reflection of the terror which had selfsd him flashed In her own face. It passed quickly away. Si laughed MoeklBgly.

But that's Just what she did from the top of a 60-foot tree. Just why the cat climbed there la only knonn by Tlllle her self. It Is presumed that she was chased by dogs In the neighborhood, as there were scars on nor front feot.

GERMANS HACKING WAY TO BASE ABOVE WARSAW Plonsk, East of Flock, Objcctivo of Now Movement. PKTROORAD, Feb. 20. The Germans have moved heavy forces from Scrpez southward and from Plock eastward along tho road toward Plonsk, where their head column Is In fighting contnet with Russian cavalry moving north of Novo Georglovsk. The Germans ar.o grasping stubbornly at this position, evidently with the aim of seeking a base for an attack on Warsaw from tho north are certainly not yourself this morning." "I saw jou swinging." ho muttered, "swinging by that piece of cord! Ihere waa a great black pin through jour heart. 'Elizabeth, If ho should get away somotlmel If some one sould come over from America and discover where ho was! If ho should' find us out! Oh, my God, If he. should find us out!" Elizabeth had risen to her feet. She was standing now before tho flreVher left elbow resting upon tho mantlepltcc, a trifle of silver gleaming In her right hand. "Father." she said, "there Is no danger In life for those who know no fear. Look at me." His ejes sought hers, fascinated "It ho should And mo out," sho con tinued, "It would bo no such terrible thing, after all. It would bo the end." Her fingers disclosed the little orna ment she was carrylng-a tiny pistol. Sho slipped It back Into her pocket. The man was wondering how such .a thing as this came to be. his daughter. "You have courage, Elizabeth," he whispered. "I have courage," she assented, bo cause I have brains. I never allow my self to be In a position where I should be likely to get tho worst of It Ever since the day when he turned so suddenly ngslnst me, I have been careful." Her father leaned toward her. "Elizabeth," he said, "I never really understood, What was It that came over him so suddenly? One day he was your slave, the next I think he would havo murdered 'you If, ho could." She shrugged her shoulders. "Honestly." she replied, "I felt it Im possible to keep up the sham any longer, I married Wenham Gardner In New York because ha was supposed to bo a million aire and because It seemed to be the best thing to do, but as to living with him, I never meant that. You know how ridiculous his behavior was on the boat. Ho never Met me out of his sight, but swore that he was going to gtvo up smoking and drinking and lead a new Ufa for my sake. I really believe he meant It, too." "Wouldn't It havo been better, dear," her father suggested, timidly, "to have encouraged him?" She shook her head. "He was absolutely hopeless," she de clared. "You say that I have no nerves; that la because I do not allow rnyself to suffer. If I had gons on living with Wenham, It Would have driven me mad. His habits, his manner of life, every thing disgusted me. Until I came to see so much of him, I never understood what tha term 'decadent' really can mean. Tho very touch of, him grew to be hateful. No woman could live with such a man. By tha way, ho sighed tho draft, I sup. Dose?" Her father handed her a slip of paper, which she looked at and locked In her drawer. "Did ho make any trouble about It?" she asked. The professor shivered, "Hs refused to sign it." he said, In a low tone, "awors he would never sign it. Mathers sent me out for a few minutes, made me go into another room. When I came back, he gave me the draft. I heard him calling out," "Mathers certainly earns his money," she remarked, drily. Hs gad at her vrlth grudging admira tion. This .was h)s daughter, his own flesh and blood. Back through the year, for a moment, he seemed to see her, a child with hair down her back, sitting on his knee, listening to his stories, wondering at the little arts and tricks by which he had wrested their pennies and slxpennles from a credulous public. Phrenologist, hypotist. conjurer all these things tho 'great Professor Franklin had called himself. Often, from tho rude stage where he had given hi perform ance, ha had terrified to death the women and children of his audience. It flashed upon htm at that moment that never, even In tho days of her childhood, had he seen fear In Elizabeth's face. "You should havo been a man, Eliza beth." he muttered Bhe shook her head, smiling a though not lll-plcaed at the compliment The power of - man Is so limited." she declared "A woman has mora weapons " "More weapons indeed," the proftesor agrd, as his eyas traveled ever th isHm yat wm4wul perfection of bar Several boys told Agent Lelper, of the Pcnnsjlvanta. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Ha got a clothes line, and, climbing to a nearby roof, las soed a limb. Several small boys threw Tlillo some beef by the same system. Sh nibbled It, smacked her lips, and then meofted her gratitude. Finally the cat grasped the Idea of the ropo and then tho rope Itself. Entwining her paws around It, she swung gracefully from the limb of the tree and slid down ward, In long Jerks, to the ground. On reaching tho sldowalk Tlllle was pro vided with a dinner of lamb chops and mahsed p'otntoea, which she ate hcartllv. The cat was then adopted by Policeman Roy Davis, of the Germantown station. No one knows where she camo from. west similar to their Intrenchments around tho Diura and Rawka Rivers. From Plonsk an effective advance on Warsaw could not be made without the capture of the Novo Georglevsk fortress, situated at the Junction of three, big rlv ere, It Is announced at the War OHlco that tho strength of tho Germnn attack on tho Serpez-Plock front has perceptibly decreased during tho movement of troops. Further fighting Is expected there, as the Germans, checked by tho stubborn de fensive and deep mud In the Augustowo region, are apparently withdrawing troops from the front south of the NJemon Rtvor and transferring them to Poland, north of tho Vlstuln. TAVE form, lingered for a moment at the little knot of laco at her throat, wrestled with tho delicate sweetness of her features, struggling liar I to think from whom among his ancestors could have come a creature so phjalcally attractive. "More weapons, Indeed," he repeated. "Elizabeth, what a glft-what a gift!" "You speak," she replied, "as though It were an evil one." "I was only thinking," he said, "that it seems a pity. You aro so wonderful, wo might have found an easier and a less dangerous way to fortune." Sho smiled. "Tho Bohemian blood In me. I suppose," sho remarked. "Tho crooked ways at tract, jou know, when one has been brought up as I was." , "Your poor mother had no love for them," ho reminded her. "Beatrlco has Inherited everything that belonged to my mother. I am jour own daughter, father. You ought to be proud of me. But there, 1 gavo jou another commission. Is It true that Jerry Is really here?" "Ho arrived In England on Wednesday on tho Lusltanla Ho has been In town all the time since." A distinct frown darkened her face. "He must havo had my letter, then," shb murmured, half to herself. "Without a doubt," her father admitted. "Elizabeth, whj do you take chances about seeing this man? He was fond of you In Now York, I know, but then he was fond of his brother, too. He may not believe joun story. It may be danger ous." She smiled "I think I can convince Jerry Gardn of anything I choose to tell him," she said. "Besides, it la absolutely neces sary that I have some information about Wenham's affairs. He must have a great deal more money somewhere and I must find out how we are to get at It." The professor shook his head. "I don't like It," ho muttered. "Sup posing he finds Beatrice!" Elizabeth shrugged her shoulders. "Beatrlco Is made of silent stuff," she declared. "I should never be afraid of her. All the same, I wish I could find out Just where she Is, It would look better If we were living together." The professor shook his head sadly, "She Jeft us of her own free will," he said, "and I don't believe, Elizabeth, that she would eyer come back again. She knew very well what she was doing, She knew that our views of life were not hers. She didn't know half, but she knew enough. You wsre quite right In wljat you said Just now; Beatrice was more like her mother, and her mother was a good woman." "Reallyl" Elizabeth remarked, Inso lently, "Don't answer like that," he blustered, striking the table. "She waa your mother, too." The woman's face was Inscrutable, hard, and flawless behind the little cloud of to bacco smoke. Tha man began to tremble once mors. Every time hs ventured to assert himself, a single look from her was sufficient to quell him. "Elizabeth," he muttered, "you haven't a heart, you haven't a soul, you haven't a conscience. I wonder what sort of a woman you are!" "I am your daughter," she reminded him, pleasantly. "I was never quit so bad as that," he went on, taking a large silk handkercblf from his pocket and dabbing his forehead "I had to live and time were hard. I have cheated tha public, perhaps. I haven't been above playing at cards a little cleverly, or making something where I could out of th weaker men. But, Elizabeth, I am afra(d of you" "Men are generally afraid of the big stakes," sho remarkedt flicking the ash from her cigarette, "They will cheat and Us for halfpennies, but they are bad gamblers when life or death the big things are In tho balance. Bah!" she went on "Father. I want Jerry Gardner to come and see me" "If you can't make him come, my dear," the professor said, "I am ure it will be of no use my trying!" "He has had my letter," she continued. bfllOOta AND COLLUQKa B U S I N K 8B I n"h"T B U 0T I Q N GTKKOaRAPHY. BOOKKSBPINQ TCmUllt BrlkUctl&S. BiuIbux Arithmetic 831 UaU BuUdlaf, 143$ CJkutBUt tUMt.

Thousands of worshipers at'ended the noonday Lenten tervlces al the Garrlck Theatre nnd tha various churches In the city's centre today. Long beforo tho time scheduled for the services to begin tho idlnce were crowded with the faith ful. Prominent clergymen addressed tne meetings "The Highest Knowledge" was tho t!i(ine of tho Rev. O. II. Beohtold, di rector of the Lutheran Settlement, at the noonday I'nten sovlce nt St. John a Lu therm Church, Cth nnd Unco streets. "The Christian must stilve to know Jesus Christ and Ills salvation above all earthly knonledgo nnd all earthly ambi tion If ho would reap the full benents of the gospel," said tho speaker. "The Chris tian must keep his eyo on the Cross of tho Crucified If ho would be contented with his lot In this life: ho must follow the way to Calvary If he would enter Into the Joy of his Lord, and he must suffer the death of nil earthly passions and de sires If ho would rise with his Lord." "THE GATES OF THE BIBLE" Doctor Jcfferys Preachoa Special Len ten Sermon to Children. The Rev. Dr. Edward Jefferys, rector of St Peter's Church, 3d and Pino streets, spoke at the noonday Lenton service. Ho took as his subject "The Gates of tho Bible," one of n course of sermons for children. Such a sermon, It was an nounced, will bo hold every Saturday. "The gates of Heaven are the wide and the narrow gates," said Dr. Jefforys "Christ makes no distinction between them, but sets them beforo us for us to choose between them. Tho reason so many choose tho wldo gates and the broad way Is because It Is the easiest way and all down hill The narrow gates lead to the hard way. It means living for others, for duty ana tor uoa. uut Christ says the end of tho way Is eternal life." "THE FORGIVENESS OF SIN" Doctor Foley Speaks on This Topic at Old St. Paul's. The Rev. George C. Foley, of tho Divin ity School, spolto on "Tho Forgiveness of Sin" at tho noonday Lenten servlco nt Old St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 3d half to herself; "ho has had my letter and he docs not come." "There Is nothing to bo done but wait," her father decided. "And meanwhile," sho wont on, "sup posing ho wero to discover Beatrice, sup posing they two wero to como together; supposing ho were to tell her what lie knows nnd sho were to tell him what she guessed!" Tho professor burled his faco In his hands. Elizabeth threw her cigarette away with an Impatient gesture. "What an idiot I anil" she declared. "What la tho uso of wasting time like this?" Thero was a knock nt the door. A trim looltlng French maid presented herself. Sho nddrcsscd her mistress In voluble Trench. A coiffeur and a manicurist were waiting In tho next apartment; It was lime that Madamo habited herself. The professor listened to theso announcements with an nlr of Imlf-admlrlng wonder. "I suppose I must bo going," ho said, rising to hla feet. "There is Just one thing I should like to nsk you, Elizabeth, If I may, beforo I go." "Well?" "Who was tho young man whom I met here Just now?" "Why do jou ask that" she demanded. "I really do not know," her father re plied, thoughtfullj-, "except that his ap psarance seemed a llttlo singular. In some respects ho appeared so common place. His clothes and bearing. In fact, wero so ordinary that I was surprised to find him here with jou. And, on the other hand, his face you must remember, my dear, that this Is entirely a profes sional Instinct, I cm still Interested In faces " "Quite so," she admitted. "Go on. The young man rather puzzles me myself. I should llko to hear what jou make of him. Whst did jou think of his face?" 'There was something powerful about It." he declared, "something dogged, splendid, narrow, Impossible the sort of face which belongs to a man who achieves great things because he Is too stupid to recognize failure, even when it has him In its arms and. Its fingers are upon his throat. That young man has qualities, my dear, I am sure. Mind you, at present they aro dormant, but he has qualities." She led him to the door. "My dear father," she said, "sometimes I really respect you. If you should come across that young man again, keep your eye upon htm. He knows one thing at least which I wish he would tell us he knows where Beatrice Is." Her father looked at her In amazement. "He knows where Beatrice Is and he has not told you?" She nodded. "You tried to have him tell you and he refused?" the professor persisted. "Exactly," she admitted. Her father put on his hat. "I knew that young man was something out of the common."
