physician asked me some questions, and I an
swered them to the best of my ability. He
did not smile at my fright; only shook his
head and gave me something which made me
sleep again. And so for a week I lay there,
helpless, half asleep, and half awake. But
one day I awoke to clear consciousness, com
paratively free of the torture of the broken
ankle, and myself again. Then the physician
and I discussed the matter at length.
" He listened respectfully as 1 repeated it
all, and at the end shook his head
"'There is no intersecting road between
the small store of which you speak and the
outskirts of Millen,' he said positively.
" 'But, man, I was there!' I protested. 'I
turned into the other road, and ran along till
I saw the house in the open field. 1 tell you?'
" But he let me go no further. I knew why.
He thought it was some mental vagary; for
after awhile he gave me a pill and went away.
So 1 resolved to solve the matter for myself. I
would go back along that road by day, and
find that silent old man, and, if not the house
itself, the charred spot where it had stood. 1
would know that intersection; I would know
even the path which led lrom the mysterious
road off into the wood. When I found these 1
knew the maze would fade into some simple,
plain explanation?perhaps even an absurd
"So I bided my time. In the course of an
other week I was able to leave my cot and
hobble about with the aid of crutches. It was
then that 1 took the physician in my car. and
we went back along the highway toward I'el
ham. It was all unfamiliar ground to me;
there was no road, and suddenly there ahead
of me was the little store where I had bought
the gasolene that night. I would question the
old man I had seen there; but there was no
old man. The little store was unoccupied; it
seemed to have been unoccupied for weeks.
" I turned back and traversed the road
toward Millen again. I recognized nothing; I
couldn't find a trace of a bypath from the
highway in any direction. And once more I
went over the ground at night. Nothing!
After that the physician, a singularly patient
man, accompanied me as I hobbled through
the forest on each side of the road seeking
that house, or its ashes. I never saw anything
to lead me, to even suggest, a single incident of
that awful night.
" ' I know the country, every inch of it.'
the physician told me. ' There isn't any such
place as you mention.'
And?well, that's all. I know his opinion
was that my story was some sort of delusion?a
dream. But how he accounts for the broken
ankle I don't know. Then the condition of my
clothing1 I had been compelled to discard
everything 1 wore for garments sent down
from the city. And so in time I came to be
lieve the experience a dream. I was growing
content with this story, even knowing it to
be wrong, because it brought mental rest, and
was beginning to be myself again.
" Then one day I had occasion to search the
coat I had worn that night for some papers
which had been misplaced. In the course of
the search I thrust my hand into an outside
pocket, and drew out?a little ivory god, sit
ting on his haunches, grinning hideously!
" Now I am like this?and the little god sits
up laughing at me. He knows!"
When he had finished reading, The Thinking
Machine dropped back into the chair, with
squint eyes turned steadily upward, and long
slender fingers pressed tip to tip. Hutchinson
Hatch, reporter, sat staring in silence at the
drawn, inscrutable face of the scientist.
"And the writer of this?" demanded The
Thinking Machine at last.
" His name is Harold Fairbanks," the re
porter explained. " He was removed to an
asylum yesterday, hopelessly insane."
The explanation of this mystery will appear in
next Sunday's magazine.
The Smallest Screws
'THE smallest screws in the world are those
made in watch factories. They are cut
from steel wire by a machine; but as the chips
fall from the knife it looks as if the operator
was simply cutting up the wire for his own
diversion. One thing is certain, no screws
can be seen, and yet a screw is made by every
The fourth jewel wheel screw is next to in
visible, to the naked eye resembling a speck
of dust. With a glass, however, it can be made
out quite distinctly. It has two hundred and
sixty threads to an inch. These little screws
are four one-thousandths of an inch in diam
eter, and the heads are double in size. It has
been estimated that an ordinary thimble would
hold one hundred thousand of them.
About one million of them are manufactured
in the course of a month; but no attempt is
ever made to count them. In determining the
number, one hundred of them are placed on a
very delicate balance, and the number of the
whole quantity calculated from the weight of
these. All the small parts of the watch are
counted in this way, probably fifty out of the
hundred and twenty.
When they have been cut, the screws are
hardened and put into frames, about one hun
dred to the frame, heads up. This is done very
rapidly, but entirely by the sense of touch in
stead of by sight, so that a blind man with a
little experience could perform the task.
The next step in the process is to polish the
heads in an automatic machine, ten thousand
at a time. The plate on which this is done is
covered with oil and a grinding compound,
and on this the machine moves them very
rapidly, by a reversing motion, until they are
in perfect condition.
You are All Confused
?You want the iweeteit toned
?You want that sweet tone to laat
?You dislike to spend any more
money than necessary:?But every adviser, and so-called expert, recommends a
different make. You are like a man lost in the woods. You don't know
which way to turn. This surely describes your position.
RTHE REMEDY: ? Educate yourself on the subject! Study ?
? Read more?Study more. Then listen in the quietness of
your own parlor to the tone of the highest grade piano
you can get, but without agreeing to purchase it. Call
in all those musical friends who you know are not
under past obligations to any piano dealers or
friends of dealers. Resolve you will study atten
tively piano tone and will be deaf, while studying, to the magnetic
talk and persuasiveness of salesmen. This is the intelligent way. It
the way you planned your new home. You made a long study of it
calmly, thoroughly, and you became quite an expert. You can be just as
expert about pianos.
