Walt, and I'll tell you.
For three whole days tho ground had
been frozen so hard that even a very
Industrious sparrow (which Tammy was)
couldn't find a single scrap to eat not
And poor little Tommy had scratched
and hunted and starved, till It was no
wonder ho felt queer Inside! Ho felt
hollow! That's how he really felt!
But Tommy was not one to sit around
and complain not he! He was cheerful
and Industrious no matter whether he
had anything to eat or not. So he didn't
sit down nnd whln3. Indeed no. He
Just started out hopefully for food.
Of course ho didn't flnd any, for the
ground was stilt frozen as hard as a
brick, and every bit of fpod had been
picked, up by the birds the days before.
Hut he chirped and scratched and told
himself that In a minute he would find
some very choice morsel.
But he didn't.
And the other little sparrows around
In the yards they didn't either,
Now Just at that very minute, when
Tommy (and three, nearby sparrows,,
too) were getting pretty tired pretending
that they would find something In a
minute, who should come out of the
bouse but a little girl. Maybe that
wasn't so very wonderful. But listen!
In her hand she carried a pan ot gar
bagenicy, hot, smoky garbage!
"Qlj, dear!" chirped the sparrows, all
at once, "If only she'd leave the cover
ott that old can, what a feast we would
have I If only she would!" (You see,
usually she didn't.)
But this time she was cold and hurried
and, well anyway, she just dumped the
garbage Into the can and ran scampering
back Into the warm house!
Tommy and the three other sparrows
gave one glad chirp of toy, and then they
settled down to a fast.
So that la the reason why four little
fc,jarrc-ws, each as gay as you please, pat
'round the top of an opan garbage can
and had a party.

GREAT MYSTIC STORY
Zudora1 is Ut an orphan at an early
nj7t. Iter father Is killed in a gold mine
he has tllscoicrrd, Half an hour after
Icaniinj; of the death of her huiband, u
dora's mother, a tipht roue tealfcer with a

are left to the guardianship of Frank
Kcene, a circus man and the brother of
Zudora'a mother Zudora, piling prom
ise of great beautv, reaches the age of IS.
The uncle, 1110 has set himself up as a
Hindu mpstie, and ii known as Ilassam
Alt,. decides in his greed that Zudora must
die " before she comes into possession of
her-vreat fortune, so that it may 6 left to
Mm the next of Mfi, and he irt rolls upon
(do olrl to liaie her money in his hands
three years longer and to sag nothing (o
any one about the fortune. Ilassam All
sees mi obstacle to Ms scneme in the per
son of John Storm, a young lawyer for
whom Zudora has taken a fancy, and ho
commands the girl to put the man out of
her mind. Storm comes to osk JIassam
AH for the hand of his niece. At first the
crystal gazer will not listen to the prar
pobal, tut Zudora tnjlsts that if she can
not marry Storm she will marry no one.
'Well, well," said Ilassam All, "if you
take such a stand I'll compromise. Solve
my next SO cases and you can marry him!
fail i a slnglo case and you must re
nounce him." . . . , .
Zudora, using the knowledge gained
from years of association with her uncle,
unravels a series of baffling mysteries.
THE MISSING HEIB.
TUEBE was something strange about
this man Ilassam All. There were
times when he seemed young, times when
he seemed old, careworn, broken. Zudora
thought nothing of these subtle changes,
hovyever; her mind was occupied with
other affairs. But Ilassam All's, servant
knew what It signified, and he hoarded
his savings against that day when ho
would have no master! For a Ions tlmo
he knew that It was not Ilassam All who
went forth from the mystic room, but
Ilassam All's double, and a very danger
ous double, had Hassam All known.
Tho man was fond of money, though he
was not quite the miser Hassam was, But
often, while In the mystic room, going
through the mummery he disliked and de
spised, ho could hear the real Hassam
counting his gold, which Balrd deter
mined some day to get hold of. He lived
In tho house directly back of the mystic
house, and there was a secret tunnel be
tween the two houses.
In the beginning he had followed out
Hassam All's orders without any particu
lar notice of the victim; but after the af
fair of Wu Chang, Balrd awoke to the
fact that Zudora was an extremely at
tractive young woman. Thus, his Interest
In doing away with John Storm began to
havo something more than a negligible In
terest, But Zudora! That was another
matter after he began to recognise that
his heart heat faster whenever she came
Into his presence. It was fortunate that
Hassam All was by nature cold and Un
demonstrative In the matter of bestowing
affection. Balrd longed to touch her, but,
knowing his part, dared not.
Hassam All's long black hair was, as
Zudora very well knew, nothing but a
wig. Except that Baird's skin was a lit
tle fresher, he and Hassam All might
easily have posed as twins. There yas
no occasion for Zudora, then, to look
upon this substitute for her uncle with
suspicion. She began to suspect seri
ously his attitude, but not his personality.
So Balrd banked the fires In his eyes
and endeavored to think of her as little
as possible. But thoughts are masters,
and they lead us whither they will.
One day he entered the secret chamber
at the foot of the shaft to confer with
the real Hassam All. who lay upon a cot
"How do you fel today?"
"Badly," said Zudora'a uncle. "You
have failed three times. "
I have done no better, no worse, than
you. if that fc what you mean," laid
Baird, without much, hunUUty. "I have

"You havo promised that If you should
die what you havo would become mine,"
said Balrd. "You havo promised to mako

Ilassam All rubbed his hands together.
"So they can," he said, "s,o they can. I

"O, there Is? And what might It be?"
Ilassam All sat up stiffly. "What the

murder of the legitimate heir of Ivan the
Terrible. Pursued by tho tyranny of con

tender to tho throne, the gloomy and sol
itary ruler settles Into the dnrkness of
Insanity, coming forth In flashing mo
ments of strength! and falling nt last In
ah agonlrcd death. That, with Its Inci
dents (few purely operatic In character)
sketches the drama, which Poushkln
wrote. But tho figure which stands
throughout the play Is tho people of llus

great. To present that 'figure upon the
scene, MoussorgBky gladly discarded the
common artifices of o)icrij. Tho people,

are of first Importance. It Is shell n thing

Tho Van Wick child, heir to the Van
Wick millions, had been kidnapped des
pite all the precautionary measures to
prevent such a catastrophe.
"So they've done It!" ho mused "aloud,
"Done what?" asked Zudora.
"Kidnapped the Van Wick child. There
may be a Ilttlo work for us, my child; a
Ilttlo work for us. I think that I'll go
downtown nnd mako a fow investigations
before thoy come to us."
For one thing, ho wanted to get away
from Zudora. All these thoughts of her
were crowding dangerously near action.
A misstep at this tlmo would bring his
house of cards tumbling about his head.
He proceeded to a house situated in a
semlfashlonablo district and rang for ad
mittance. Tho servant ndmltted him
without question. This house was the
residence of n woman who called herself
Mmo. Du Val. Tho fall of her lato con

Sho came Into tho draVIng room to
find Balrd, sans wig and make-up; In
fact, himself. Ho was in the middle
30s, and certain kinds of women would
call him fascinating.
"Yes. So you've accomplished tho feat
In splto of tho private detectives?"
"What do you mean?" Innocently.
"Come, come, Nora; between you nnd
mo there should be no secrets. I mean
tlfo Van Wick child. You've got him."
"So we have. And It will take a hun
dred thousand to get him back. I'm get
ting a little tired of this career. I want
enough to live In slmplo comfort In
France. Do you know, Jim, that you are
a Ilne-Iooklng man?"
"And that If you'll listen to me this
girl Zudora shall vanish so completely
that she'll be as hard to find as n puff
of smoke? And when that Is done, by-by
to Ilassam All, whom I've always hated.
He's as cold blooded as a fish. Millions,
boy. for both of us! Travel nnd luxury!"
She sat down beside the man. She was
undeniably handsome; but Balrd had
seen tigers equally as handsome. And
even ns he gazed upon her the dreamy
face of Zudora seemed to flit past.
"But there Is one man we roust get
rid of absolutely before we make any at
tempt upon tho girl," he said.
"Storm? You will never get him ex
cept through Zudora. With the girl ns a
lure, you can bring Storm Into any kind
