DO WE HAVE TO DIE!
Thirty years ago, in Forbidden
Tibet, behind the highest moun
tains in the world, a young Eng
lishman named Edwin J. Dingle
was desperately ill in mind and
body. A great mystic opened his
eves. A great change came over
him. He realized the strange
Power that Knowledge gives.
That Power, he says, can trans
form the life of anyone. Ques
tions, whatever they are, can be
answered. The problems of
health, death, poverty and wrong,
can be solved. |
In his own case, he was
brought back to splendid health.
He acquired wealth, too, as well
as world-wide professional recog
nition. Thirty years ago, he was
sick as a man could be and live.
Once his coffin was bought.
Years of almost continuous tropi
cal fevers, broken bones, near
blindness, privation and danger
had made a human wreck of him,
physically and mentally.
He was about to be sent back
to England to die, when a strange
message came—“They are wait
ing for you in Tibet.” He wants
to tell the whole world what he
learned there, under the guid
ance of the greatest mystic he
ever encountered during his
twenty-one years in the Far
East He wants everyone to ex
perience the greater health and
the Power, which came to him.
Within ten years, he was able
to retire to this country with a
fortune. He had been honored by
fellowships in the World’s lead
ing geographical societies, for his
work as a geograDher. And to
day, 30 years later, he is still so
athletic, capable of so much
work, so young in appearance,
it is hai’d to believe he has lived
so long.
As a first step in their progress
toward the Power that Knowl
edge gives, Mr. Dingle wants to
send to readers of this paper a
9000-word treatise. He says the
time has come for it to be re
leased to the Western World, and
offers to send it, free of cost or
obligation, to sincere readers of
this notice. For your free copy,

the door. Winnie couldn’t move
that quickly.
Sam’s smile was a little shy
as it had once been. “Good
night, Alison. I’ll be seeing
you.”
Good night, Sam. J hope you
will.”
He was walking slowly down
the steps when Teresa opened
the door. She was glad that he
had not hurried as if he were
tunning away from Teresa. Ap
parently then, he had no qualms
about seeing her and didn’t care
if she knew that he had taken
her, Alison, to dinner.
as Alison stepped into the
hall, Teresa went into the living
room and switched on one of
the lamps. Alison followed, see
ing that Teresa was wearing a
velvet house gown of that par
ticularly electrifying shade of
blue. With her fair hair loose
and soft about her face she
made Alison think again that
too much of her loveliness was
being wasted.
Looking up through the smoke
of the cigaret she had just light
ed Teresa said, “I was very
amused at Annette’s loyalty to
you. She said that as far as
what you’re interested in. Didn’t
you wear a hat tonight?”
“No.”
“No girl ever looks dressed
without a hat. You look unfin
ished. I don’t suppose Sam no
ticed. He’s not very quick about
those things.”
“On the contrary, he asked
me not to wear a hat and I
think he's quick about most
things.”
Teresa squashed her cigafet
with a determined hand. “I see
you’ve had a very stimulating
evening. You’d better run along
to bed. Frequently the morning
after makes the night-before
seem quite foolish and ... fu
tile.”
Futile? No, not futile, Tere
sa .. .
Alison asked, “Who is Winnie,
Teresa? She . , . well, she sort
of interests me.”
Teresa arose. “I suppose
you’ll have to know. She was a
very capable nurse doing a good
job in a hospital until she met
a man. He didn’t marry her but
he got all of her savings and
broke her heart and absconded.
She sank to being an alcoholic
and she was just getting over
the cure when I heard about
her. Of course no one else would
have her and she was destitute.
I don’t think she’ll slip back
but I never do anything to
tempt her.”
“Why do you have her?”
“Because I want someone
who will do as she’s told and1
who’ll stay.” She shook her
head and her soft hair stirred
on her neck. “And you speak to
me of men . . ”
“Yop don’t like men—gener
ally?”
Teresa went over and turned
out the light. “I live without
one, don’t I? Ready to go up
now?”
“Yes, I’m ready.”
I’m readv to go up and have
my little dream, Teresa. Noth
ing can stop me. People can
stop you from doing a lot of
things but they can’t stop you
from dreaming. I’ll dream of
two cigarets together and how
I felt when Sam was close to
me and how it would be if he
loved me and there were no
barriers . . . Have you a dream,
Teresa? What is your dream?
* *
Teresa always had her break
fast downtown and was gone in
the morning before Alison came
down. Conscious that she must
not add to Annette’s work, Ali
son had her breakfast in the
kitchen Usually while she was
there Miss Winstead came down
for her tray and took it to her
room on the third floor.
One morning when the nurse
was late, Alison knowing how
many times a day the older
woman went up and down the
steps, took her breakfast tray
up to her.
At her knock Winnie opened
the door and her hand immedi
ately flew to her thin, untidy
hair. With her eyes swollen she
looked haggard and old. Her
she knew you left the house
alone. But Winnie’s loyalty to
me is indisputable. She saw you
leave with Sam through the up
stairs window.”
Alison thought, 1 want to go
upstairs to my own room and
dream about tonight. I fell in
love tonight. Isn’t it normal for
a girl to want to dream a little
when she falls in love? I’ve had
nothing to dream about for such
a long time, Teresa. There was
only pain and weariness and
trying to keep things going . . .
“I was going to tell you I had
dinner with Sam. I’m sorry I
had to bring you down, but I
have no key.”
Teresa sat on one of the love
seats and crossed her legs,
jthrough the velvet gown one
could see the outline of her
body. It was as lovely as her
face.
“I haven’t the slightest objec
tion to your going out with Sam,
darling, but I don’t think you’ve
considered that I’m quite well
known here and people will talk
and it might be embarrassing to
me. I’m quite sensitive to that
sort of thing and especially
since I live such an exemplary
life myself. I was quite certain,
you see, when I pointed this out
to you that you wouldn’t do it
again.”
But if I can t see him in
public places, then I can’t see
him at all.” Not see him again
when he had said that he would
be seeing her? Not see Sam?
But when you fall in love, Tere
sa, you think he was the reason
why you were born, the reason
for everything you are and will
be. You can.’t take this away
from me because I live in your
house . . .
There are lots of boys for
you to have fun with, darling,
they’re pouring out of the serv
ice every day. Besides, I don’t
want you to go out every night.
You’re going 'to school. When
the present rush of business is
over for me I’ll be going out
in the evening and poor Winnie
has to get out a little. I’ll need
you here with Suzy.”
“I’d like to have a key if I
may. Every afternoon I have to
bring Annette to the door.”
Teresa smiled. “Oh, Annette
adores letting you in. She thinks
you’re marvelous.”
“But I . .
“Philip called tonight. We’re
going to the theatre one night
next week. He said that Edna
had had tea with you today and
simply raved about you. Don’t
worry. You'll have lots of young
men. Edna will probably give
you a party — she loves doing
that sort of thing — and invite
the cream of the crop. With
some new clothes you can have
your pick of the lot—if that’s

blue chenille dressing gown was
faded from many washings.
“I was coming upstairs so I
brought your tray along,” Ali
son said.
Winnie regarded her with
touching gratitude. “Oh, thank
you. I’m afraid I—I overslept.
You haven’t heard Suzy, have
you?”
Not a sound.”
“I’m always the first one to
go to her when she wakes up.
She wouldn’t know what to think
if I . . .”
“I’ll be very quiet when I get
my things from my room. So
you can have your breakfast be
fore she wakes up.”
When on the following morn
ing Winnie did not come down
for her tray Alison took it up
to her again. After the fourth
morning it became as much a
part of her morning routine as
brushing her teeth.
