Lincoln Beachey, the loop the loop aviator,
says about Red Crown. That means there's
power in every drop it never fails him. It
is those same qualities that make Red Crown
a good gasoline for your automobile.
the Gasoline of Quality
is the old reliable kind, that gets you there and back. It
is quick acting starts easily and burns up clean. It
may cost you a bit more per gallon but it costs you less
per mile. Red Crown is not a mixture, but a straight
distilled, refinery gasoline the best we can produce.
Make it a practice to ask for Red Crown.
Red Crown signs are furnished to all dealers handling
Red Crown Gasoline. Watch for the Sign or ask our

"I - 1 don't quite understand." he an
swered. "You'll understand after awhile,
then Murphy's my name, from head

"But what's that sot to do with me?
Tm not wanted for anything unless
waiting for a friend Is something."
Murphy noticed there was a boyish
something about the face when the
man before him smiled. "Clark's my
name. I've Just been to a party over
on Kalamath and was coining home.
There were two of us, yon know-two
couples and we Just decided that
when we had taken the girls home
we'd meet here and go over to my
house for the night. The folks are all
awny. But" he laughed the least bit
"I spent a good deal of time saying
good night, and 1 guess he went on to
his own home. I"-
The scowl which Murphy had worn
deepened a bit.
"You don't look like a crook." he said
at last "Where do you live?"
"Who's there that can Identify you?"
There was a bit of an embarrassed
"Nobody right now. The folks ure
all away. I'm the only one home, yon

"Have you got the key to the house?"
A llstlessness had come Into Murphy's

Ten minutes later they stood before

five blocks away. Murphy bent as he

"Oh. that's nil right," he called cheer
ily. "Good night!"
The Lynx stood In t ho hall for just
0 moment after he had closed the door,
listening for the fading steps of the
plain clothes man without, nnd. hear
ing them, smiled to himself. Slowly
he felt for the curtains nnd pulled
them. Then he switched mi the lights
"Jane was right." he said to himself
as he looked around the hall before
him. "It's nil ns she said. Now. If
she hasn't got the wrong dope nbout

seemed to draw his coat about him
tighter, and there came a little white

Slowly he nscenilcd the stairs anil ns '
ulleiitly as the animal whose name he
bore. Softly he felt along the wnll for !
the switch buttons, then hesitated.
The Lynx was not in the habit of trav- ;
cling under full candle power-In other
houses than his own. !
Perhaps nfter all Jane's information
hnd been wrong. Perhaps-a moment
more of hesitation, tneii the e!lck of
the switch. With animal swiftness the
eyes of the Lynx traveled here, there,
through each open door as the light of
the hull displayed bedroom after bed
room, quiet and destitute of humanity. '
The Lynx smiled. ;
"And that harness bull in plain
clothes took me word," he said sarcas
tically. "But in case he's waiting for
mo to go to bed"
lie walked noisily into the front ;
room and snapped the switch. There '
was no need for quiet now. Jane had !
been right. The family was gone: nil
wus easy, and there was the little wall ,
safe before him.
lie pulled the shades one by one '
nnd. standing in front of them, took j
off his coat and his collar, lie pulled j
a chair close to the window nnd sat ,
In It for a moment that his shadow 1
might show on the s liade. He listened.
He heard the steps of some one start '
from In front of the house and echo j
more and more faintly up the street.
Again the Lynx smiled to himself. He
lit a cigarette. lie had been right j
then, after nil Murphy of the plain
clothes squad was assured.
And It was then, as the steps faded. :
thnt the Lynx became active. A dart
to the opposite wnll, a click, nnd the
room was In darkness. He raised the i
shade that the light of n neighboring !
street lamp might cast its soft glare '
on the wall safe before him. Then he ,
began his work. J
Quietly, quickly lie turned the little I
knob nnd listened for the click of the j
tumblers within Again, again, again, !
again, and lie noted the numbers as
l the tumblers fell. Once more slowly i
nnd smilingly lie worked the comblna-
tlon, nnd what ho sought lay before !
him. - i
Not so much, it Is true, but the Lynx !
was not a sooner of vast wealth. Soli- '
talres are easier to dispose of than '
necklaces. After nil. five hundred a I
night Is not so bad. especially when !
one has a policeman to aid one.
The Lynx whistled a bit under his ,
breatli and tucked t lie proceeds of his !
work safely In his hatband. There j
were some papers The Lynx passed
them by. fllc knew there would be
no money. Slowly he closed the safe I
and passed to the next room.
Kor the Lynx needed a revolver. He !
found .it. where he had believed he '
would find It. under a pillow and pass- j
ed on. Quite aimlessly he wandered
through the house, rilling n drawer 1
i now and then by the light of his little
i searchlight merely for the curiosity of
: it. He sought Uie downstairs and look
ed at the silverware.
! It was heavy and solid. Knives and
, forks he tucked into the aperture In
the lining of his clothing, feeling cau
tiously now ami then to be sure that
j nowhere did there appear a betraying
I bulge, shaking himself a bit to be cer
i tain that silver did not touch silver
, with Its clink, which would cause trou

. the Lynx laughed.
"And n fly cop takes me to the house
I just for the company of It," he smlrk
j ed. "Jane did a good Job. she did.
Jane's a good girl. Maybe some of
! these days if 1 keep on getting dippy
over her we'll hook u maybe."
j He felt himself again. He pocketed
the Uttlo searchlight and fumbled his
i way to the door. He opened it and
I stepped out on the porch and recoiled
at the touch of a human hand
j "All right, kid." came the voice of
