in tho central section has gone Into cen

,A The ground Upon which the lilts-Carl-

'' Walnut street by a depth of 129 feet. In
1 addition It has a lot to the south, also
cohered by the building, formerly No,
Jit South Broad street, with a frontage
of feet by 107 In depth.
In comparison with other buildings In
the vicinity the ground area Is as follows;

As can be easily seen the floating sup
ply o ground space In the vicinity of
Broad and Walnut streets has been
greatly reduced during the last few
years. The Improvement has been a
great source of rovenue to tho city.
The. fact that the Stock exchange Is
located on thei site of what was Nos.
Hll to 1413 Wallnut street has had a good
deal to- do with increase. In values and
the, advancement of holding prices.
Ths, closing of the exchango after the
outbreak of the war has called a halt
on any sort of a boom as far as brokers
sure concerned. This has had ths effect
of making values more steady, and of
building Up a safer plane from which the
next advance begins.
f HISTORY OP BOOM.
At the time of the settlement of the
question of the Stock Exchange going to
Walnut street above Broad street, lots
IS feet front by a, depth of 100 feet were
In the market at from ,90.000 to $100,000.
The prices were Immediately advanced
to $125,000. and 1150,000 was refused for
No. H21 Walnut street. On April 11. 1913,
No. HIS Walnut street xt as sold for about
$250,000. lot 23 by 190. It was later con
veyed for $313,000, making a front foot
value of. J12.500 for the south side of
Walnut street In -the 1400 block. It Is not
likely' that' tho Tatham residence. No. 1420
Walnut street, could be acquired without
Advancing the price.
TriS future of the property northeast
comer of Broad and Walnut street, con
sisting, of the Forrest Theatre and ths
row of stores on Walnut and Broad
streets, la hard to point out. The as
sessment has been very steadily Increased
said' Its rental power at present must be
severely taxed to take care of fixed
Tho Realty Company purchased this
property April 30, 1805, for J2.625,000. and
Will, on April 30 next, have held the title
for ten years. It is not an excessive
estimate that central realty appreciates
in value about 10 per cent per annum.

sessed at two-thirds pf ta.t'Vmount.
The lot Is 233 feet., tin Broad street,

A GREAT MYSTIC STORY tiY HAROLD MacGRATH
Winthrop, who died in this city In MM,
and of John Winthrop, who came to this
country In 16 as Governor of the Massa
chusetts Bay Company, Her father, who
died In London In 1879, was an Intimate
friend of FrlU-Qreene Halleck. Her Hus
band was the late William Seymour Ker
nochan. His ancestor, Joseph Kernochan,
cams to this country In the latter part
of the eighteenth century.
Zudor If left an orphan at an early are.
Her father ia killed In a sold mine he
has discovered. Half an hour after looming-
of the death of her husband, Zudnrn'e
mother--, tight-rope walker with a drone
Is seised with verilgo, fella and la killed.
Zudora and the fortune from the mine,
which later stows to be worth $20,000,000,
are left to ths guardianship of , Frank
Keene, a circus min and the brother of
Zudora'a mother. Zudora, riving promise
of treat beat,.), reaches the nge of 18.
The uncle, who has set himself up as a
Hindu mrstta and Is known,as Haaaam
All,. decides In hla (reed that fcudora must
die before she comes Into possession, of her
jrreat fortune, so that It may be left to
him, the next of kin, and he prevails upon
the girl to leave her money In his hands
three years longer and to say nothing to
any one about the fortune.
Hasram All aees an obstacle to hie
scheme In the person of John Btorm, a
young lawyer, for whom Zudora lias taken
a fancy, and he commands the girl to nut
the man out of her mind. Storm comes
to ask Hassam All for the hand of his
niece. At Tint the crystal gaier will 'not
listen, to the proposal, but Zudora. Insists
that If ahe cannot marry Btorm aho will
marry no one,
'well. .well.'1 said Hassam All, "If you
take such a stand, I'll compromise. Solve
nr next 20 cases and you can marry hlmj
fall In n single case and you must re
Zudora, using tho knowledge gained from
yesrs of association with her uncle, un
ravels a baffling mystery and Tins her
first case a case In which John Storm Is
saved from being convicted or a murder
Instigated by Hassam All himself.
THE SECRET OF THE HAUNTED
Perhnps a month elapsed without any
puzzling case coming under Hnssnm All's
nbtlce. Zudora and Storm had their
meetings, always previously arranged by
tho carrier pigeons, about which Hassam
AH pretended to know nothing. Besides,
he was busy with numerous clients who
wanted to know about their business In
vestments, tholr own futures, and some
body else's past. And he continued to
build his pyramids of phantom gold. The
one mistake ho had made -was to ac
quaint Zudora with tho knowledge of her
Immense fortune. The trustees hod al
ways addressed their letters to him, and
It would have been an easy matter to
have kept her in Ignorance. But, evil as
he was himself, ho had a profound re
spect for Zudorn's word. She had given
It; and there wns three yeare' grace. If
In that period of time he could not rid
himself of that meddling attorney he
would tear down the black velvet cur
tains with his own hands and make a
bonfire of them.
Storm had urged Zudora a dozen times
to marry him secretly: but she stead
fastly refused to accede to his wishes.
Of what use to .marry If they could not
have a home of their own? Of what lias
to burden themselves with a secret which
would Interfere with their pursuits and
hang threateningly over their heads?
More than that, she reasoned, her friends
would always look askanco at her If,
after some months, it became known that
she was married and was not living open
ly with her husband. No; she had given
her word, and she would not break It So
John surrendered gracefully. But he was
always feeling that mysterious cloud
which hung lowering over them both.
Many a night while alone he tried to
flguro out the basic cause for Hassam
All's attitude. Some day, when work
easled up a bit, he determined to go back
over Hassam All's past, with all the
searching Inquiry of a first-class lawyer.
There was something more than mere
physical antagonism. He never confessed
this belief to Zudora, however. It die!
not look quite fair to her to put doubts
.into her heart when he had nothing back
of these doubts but Instinct. But there
was no getting around the plain fact that
he feared Hassam All, feared him for
One day Storm received a letter from
his mother, and the contents first amused,
then alarmed him. Ills parents were well
to do country folk In the South. Their
forebears had ben Southerners of wealth
and position up to war times. Piece by
piece the fine double Inheritance had
vanished, and at the time of John's birth
they had sunk from affluence to tho ordi
nary comforts of life. There had been
enough money to send the lad to college,
to fit him for his own battle In life. He
was a good son, writing home once a
month and making holiday visits when
even there was opportunity. Often he
had sent checks home, but Invariably
these had been returned. They did not
need the money; they had enough for
their simple wants, and when they died
all they had would be his.
His mother had written that an alarm
ing mystery had confronted them, one
that promised to decimate the colored
servitors on the varldus farms and es
tates, And Just now, when nil the crops
were ripe, It meant ruin for a great many
whoso solo Income was derived from their
crops. The colored people were not dy
ing! they Were fleeing. This mystery was
no Idle fancy, no Idle rumor; it was a
living fact visible to the eye. She and
her husbnnd had seen the thing them
selves, and they were normal-minded peo
pli. Something must be dono soon or
there would not be n servant left In the
The hill back of ths Storm place was
haunted. Night after night, against tho
sldo of the hill, there appeared the heroic
skeleton of "a human hand, with a black
spot In the centre of tho palm, as If It
had been mado by an enormous bullet
No one could get close to It Invariably
It vanished at the approach of any living
being. This ghastly thing waxed and
waned something after the manner of the
coal of a man's pipe. Of course, It was
plain trickery, but ona could not Im
press tho excitable colored mind with
this fact: and mors than this, there were
many white people who were quite as
sured that this skeleton hand presnged
the coming of the end of tho world.
Something must be dono, nt once. Would
her dear son come Immediately and see
If he could put thin mystery where It
belonged? He wired back that he would.
Of course, there Vns no doubt In his
mind that some one was playing a prac
tical Joke of a grewsome sort; but he
also realized thnt It might turn Into a
serious affair If It was permitted to con
tinue He laughed at one moment and
swore at the next Why the perpetrators
of the Joke had selected the hill back of
tho Storm place set him to thinking
deeply. He decided to go homo and "lay"
tho ghost, as the saying goes. He packed
up, sent a letter to Zudora, and left town.
When Zudora reoelved the letter she
was greatly perturbed. It seemed to her
that what appeared as a bit of coarse
foolery might have as Its base something
serious regarding tho welfare of her love
and his people. Rather dlflldently the
sought Hassam All's advice.
Her undo shrugged. "Some country
bumpkin Is playing a Joke on tho more
simple minded. Go and Eolve It If you
wish. Only you'll have your trouble for
"But how do you account for the hand?"
"Trickery, pure and simple. Phosphor
escence, mayhap. Tho negro mind at
least, the Southern negro Is full of kinks
like their hair. They will take It as a
sign that tho world Is coming to an end."
"Some of them have already deserted.

Hassam All gave her a quick, shrewd
glance. Ho wondered what was going
on In the girl's mind. Had she any sus
picion? It was Inherent for her to speak
"Have you Intimated to Storm of the
gold?" he asked.
"No." rather scornfully. "I have given
my word. You ought to know that I
never break It."
"But often regret giving It?" shrewdly.
"Well, my advice Is, stay home. There
Is no reason why you should take any
risks on account of Storm's people."
"You raid It was probably a bumpkin's
"Yes, but thenegroes 'cannot be trusted
In a case where their Imagination may get
the better of their common sense. Better
wait until you hear from this fool of
a lover of yours."
"I am better able to Judge John Storm
than you," coldly. "He Is not a fool."
"Holty-tpltyl Hasn't It ever occurred
to you that Storm Is young, alone and
built like most young mjyi?"
"Whnt do you mean by that?"
"Has he told you everything about his
life before he met you?"
"Will you kindly explain?"
"Let him explain," paid Hassam All;
and having planted this barb of doubt,
turned on hla' heel and retired to his den,
rather welt satisfied with himself.
