THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR

pered, " I've seen that girl somewhere before
but I can't place her. "
"Why, Lois, don't you remember that Sut-
ton girl, the one that was kidnapped two
weeks ago ? We saw her picture in the paper
so that must be where you saw her."
"Of course, now I remember. There's a big
reward for the return of her and the capture
of the kidnappers."
"Those men over in the corner must be the
ones that kidnapped her."
h "I wish we could do something to help
"And capture those men," added Jean.
"I know what we can do. I'll stay here while
you,go for help. You aren't afraid to go, are
"I'd rather go than stay here. I'll go right
now." Jean crept down the stairs and out of
Meanwhile Lois kept watch over the attic.
The two men were still playing cards and
every once in awhile the girl tried to shift her
All of a sudden Lois lost her footing and
fell. The noise startled the men and they ran
toward her to see what the matter was. One
of the men spied her and pulled her into view.
"What cha doin' here, sister?" asked one.
"N-nothing," stammered Lois.
.SI suppose spyin' on us is called nothin',
" No, sir, I guess not."
" What do you mean, you guess not? Don't
" No, sir, I mean yes, sir, was the frightened
" Well, what are we goin, to do with her,"
said the one gangster.
"Tie her up with the other one, I guess,"
was the answer.
"No, I don't think that will do. She knows
too much. We ought to put her someplace
where no one will hear what she has to say."
"You mean bump her off ? "
"You catch on fast."
"Nix on that, Butch. We've got enough to
handle with this Sutton dame."
"I suppose you are right after all. We
might as well tie her up now and think of
something later. We'll put a gag on her so
she won't scream like the other one did."
The one called Butch produced some rope
and bound Lois hand and foot and put a gag
in her mouth so she could hardly breathe.
Then they put her over in the corner with the
other girl. It was then that Lois got a good
look at the girl. It seemed that the girl hadn't
eaten for a long time. Her eyes were sunken
and her face was thin. Lois wondered how
anyone could be so cruel as to let this defense-
less girl starve to death. Then the thought
flashed on her, what if Jean didn't get back in
time maybe the men would kill her as they
had planned to do in the first place. What if
oh-there was no use in torturing herself with
all these thoughts. It was bad enough as it
All of a sudden a siren broke the silence.
It seemed to come closer every minute.
The startled two gangsters jumped from
their chairs. Where could they turn now? The
only solution was to get the girls out of the
way so if the police arrested them they would
have no proof. The one called Butch grabbed
Lois, and the other one, the Sutton girl. They
dumped both of them in an open trunk that
was standing near by and threw some old
clothes over them.
"Don't you dare move," muttered Butch,
lfor you'll get something you aren't looking
With that he turned away but before he
had a chance to hide, the police had bounded
up the stairs and had him covered with a gun.
"Where's the girls?" asked the captain.
"What girls ? " was the reply.
"Quit stalling and tell us where they are."
"Try and ind them if you can."
"Here we are," said a mutlied voice from
"Oh, so that's where you hid them, eh?
Well, you'll get life for this little job, orI lose
The police soon had the girls out and Jean
who had arrived with them ran over to Lois
and said, "Are you all right, Lois? I was so
worried about you."
"I'm all right, but I am afraid this girl
isn't," answered Lois, as she turned to the
Sutton girl. "She should be in bed right now
and have some good nourishing food."
" We'll take care of her right away,', said
the captain, " but right now I wish to thank
you and your friend for clearing up this my-
stery. You know there's a fat reward waiting
for you at headquarters so if you don't mind
we'll drop you off there so you can get it."
"Mind! The pleasure is all ours," said Lois.
"You said it," cried Jean.
A few hours later Jean and Lois were relat-
ing their ad ventures to their fellow club mem-
bers. They were all gathered around a big
fireplace at J ean's house.

01s LOOKED out of the old mansion window
watching the rain come down. Beside her
stood Jean who seemed to be a trifie ner-
vous. Lois suddenly turned to Jean and
said, "You would have thought that our club
could have planned a better initiation than
this. We haven't seen one ghost yet."
"I don't want to see one either. You know,
Lois, that this house is supposed to be haun-
ted and we have to stay here all night as part
of our initiation."
"Of course I know, silly," replied Lois,
"but so far nothing exciting has happened and
I, for one, hope that something will happen so
we could tell the gang."
"Well," said Jean, "I'd rather get out of
here alive than have something to tell the
gang. Iwish we had never consented to come
to this old mansion."
"I don't know what you're worrying about,
Jean. Nothing is going to happen. The rumor
that is going around about seeing a light
flash on in the attic is just a lot of talk. Just
relieve your mind about that."
"I know, Lois, but I've just got a feeling
that something awful is going to happen.
Every minute I expect a ghostly hand to come
out and spirit me away."
"Stop that, Jean, you'll give me the jitters if
you don't. I do wish you would calm yourself
and face the facts. You're just exciting yourself
ova? nothing. I tell you, Jean, nothing is going
to a. .... .. "
Just then a blood-curdling scream rang
through the old mansion breaking the dead-
like silence. It echoed and reechoed through
the house and finally ended in a low moan.
Jean and Lois stood stunned for one long
moment just staring at each other. They seem-
ed to be glued to the floor.
" W-what w-was t-that ? " Lois finally
" I d-don't k-know. " Jean whispered back.
" It seemed to c-come from t-the a-attic. Do
you s-suppose that those stories were actual-
ly true that we heard about the house being
haunted ? "
" Let's hope not, " replied Jean.
"We're not doing anything here so we had
better find out what that cry was. If anybody
is in trouble I mean to get them out of it if
it is possible."
" Oh Lois, you wouldn't go up in that
attic alone, would you ? "
" I wouldn't have to go alone if you went
with me, you know."
"You couldn't make me go in that attic for
a million dollars," said Jean.
'Tm not trying to make you go up there if
you don't want to but I don't think you'll
like to stay down here with ghosts for com-
"Stop it, Lois, you know I can't stand as
much as you can. I suppose I'1l have to go
with you if I don't want to stay here."
i All right. As long as that's settled we'll
investigate now. You can follow me. Come on,
" I-I'm right b-behind you," was the reply.
"I think we had better go up the front
stairs. It seemed that the cry came from the
a 1c. '
The two girls started up the old stairs to-
"My, these steps are creaky. It just gives
me the creeps to listen to them."
"Never mind, Jean, we'll soon be up now."
The girls reached the top of the stairs and
looked around. They seemed to be in a long,
dark hall and at the end ofthe hall was a
door. Reaching it Lois stepped forward and
opened it very slowly. She peered in and saw
another staircase that led to the third floor
and the attic.
"One more flight and we will know what
that cry really was," said Lois.
"I don't want to go up theref' whimpered
Jean. "I'm scared stiff, and I don't care who
"Buck up, Jean, in a few minutes we'll
know what's going on around here."
"O.K., but you go first."
"Well, let's get started. Remember, Jean,
don't make any noise, for if there is some one
up there we don't want them to know any-
one is about."
Once again the girls started up the flight
of stairs on tip toe.
Step after step and finally the girls reach-
ed the top. Peering over the railing the girls
saw something that made their blood run cold.
Over in one corner of the attic was a girl
tied hand and foot. In the other corner, sitting
at a table, were two men playing cards.
The girl seemed to be around sixteen years
old and had light brown hair.
Suddenly Lois turned to Jean and whis-

All of a sudden Jean piped up and said,
" Of course, I admit that Lois was brave and
all that, but let me tell you, girls, if it hadn't
been for me, Lois might not have been here
right now, and," she added, "I suppose you
girls thought that it was real spooky in that
old house, and I'1l admit it was. But you
know what ? I didn't get scared once ! "
