Then she told him the story of his father, and mad- him prnrr.Ue when he became a man to find the real murderer and clear his father' name. The fame nisfct the runic ring was stolen b.r a masked robber, and shortly after the convict. Kric Marville. haln? e. v m 'r ? n Was rfrCPard In his wlje room, and ln the flyht accidentally i-hot and u . r" ftiK taken bark to prison he was rescued and carried off by friends. This Is tn rrolog-ue to the main tory. which begins -with the return of Marville to the h'ui. of his father, the Earl of Ormsbjr. who had not known where his son had be-n. A. his father's death ha assumed th title, married and had a son. To his first wife's on he gave no hed fr noine unexplained reason, but later heard that he was dead. The second eon returned from hi travels after completing his education and brought with him a mysterious casket, which a wakeful jruest ln the hone watch! him convey secretly to the lamiiv vault. The earl wished his on to marry a your.g and wealthy cousin. Beatrice, and he reluctantly consented. It was this cousin's half-brother Godfrey who saw the casket hidden ln the vault. At this Juncture Mris jdarvilie, the earl's son. supposed to be dead, came to visit Godfrey, who was an old friend, bearing, however, the name of Break 5par. the name by which his mctiier had been known Jn Brittany. Neither he nor Godfrey knew of the former's relationship to the earl. Mris had come, however, to follow up a faint clew concerning his father. He had translated the Inscription on . the runic ring, a copy of It having been among hi mother's papers. It jointed to a treasure in a tomb, and certain indications led him to believe that this ancient tomb was rear Ormsby. In company with Godfrey he made a night visit to a mound In the neighborhood, du? Into it and found a tomb containing a crumbling skeleton. He brought away the skull and a piece of tapes try, but found nothing more. A beautiful woman. Lorelia Reviere, whom he rescued from drown ing, he discovered to be in poBsessfm of a teeret concerning him. but the refused to give him an Inkling of It. He wa greatly attracted to her and disturbed on finding that she was on friendly terms with Lord Talden. son of ihe Karl of Ormsby. who was really his brother, though neither knew it. It was accidentally discovered that the skull taken from the tomb had been pierced by a steel Instrument. ths showing that It was not. as supposed, the skull of the ancient Viking, who came to hi death, according to tradition, in another way. A bit of steel that drops from the skull proves to be part cf a stiletto hairrin. Later this was found to be modern and. there fore, the skull was not th.it of the ancient Viking- Idris made love to Lorelia and learned that she hd been married a. year before to Lord Waiden. Lord Waiden was dipleat;ei with his wife for disclosing their secret. She demanded that he make a public announcement of the marriage, but he refused. During their conversation the fact came out that Idrls Breakspcar's name was really Idrls Marville and triat he was in search of his father. Lord Wa'.den was visibly disturbed. Lorelia read a play written by herself and her reading was so dramatic as to thrül her hearers. 2ext day Idrls accidentally came upon a scene where Beatrice, hypnotized by Lorelia. was de scribing the death and burial of the Viking Orm. Then she described the entrance of two men Into the tomb centuries later. anl the murder of one by th- other, but passed out of the hypnotlo State before telling the name of the murderer. Lorelie. by herself once more, rereads an old let ter from her mother, ln which she is told that her own father, Noel ttochfort, was Rullty of the murder for which Eric MarvHlle was imprisoned in Brittany. Through her urgency he rescued Marville from prison, but this revue made him an outlaw and he had to leave France. After reading these letters Lorelle poes to Lord Walden's house and demands that he openly recognize her as hi wife. Reluctantly he Introduces her to hia father, who receives her more graciously than was expected, but is etartled on lfaminer that she Is the daughter of Kochefort, though he does not acknowledge having known him. The earl learns from his son that Lorelle suspects that he. the earl, is Eric Marville and that he murdered her father. She Is invited to po with them into the -aults beneath the tastle and suspects that they have designs on herjife. but he consents ta go. She tella them, after arriving in the vault, that she has told Geoffrey where she was going ar.d that he knew the way to the place. The earl and his son show her the tombs, with one exception. She demands to know who or what is in a certain eothn. and they reluctantly show her a mas of Jewels. Jeweled cups and vases. She discovers that some of these are imitations Hnd realizes that Lord Waiden has substituted therefor the genuine ones, but this the earl dees net suspect Local Man Passes Examination Successfully One Other In diana Winner. HAMILTON, OF EARLHAM CHAPTER XVIII Continued from Yesterday. "And the irterest taken by your father In the runic ; ring, the heirloom of the Ilavensars. proves his pesrage to have been the Earldom cf Ormsby." "I fear jdu are dealing in fanciful hyjoothesis," s,miled Idrls. "Your likeness to the family portraits of the Ilaver.jgci.r3 Is very remarkable." "Merc coincidence." "Not so. Lt is as certain that you are the rightful Earl of Ormsby as It is that the sun Is shining." J "Hut nowrl in what way?" cried Idris, impressed, in spite of himself, by her air of conviction, . ' . -i '. V , 1 v , . ' V " i A -a. I K I r t ' hi TO J i ; Ii.: :' 4 :: ' "That I caunot tell. I am trying to nnd out." I thank you, I-uly Waiden, for Interest ing yourself in my fortunes, but supposing that your surmise should prove corect what then?" "You will take the title and station that are rightfully yours." "And in so doing deprive you of your position? No, Lady "Waiden, I cannot do that. If. as is implied by your words, you are seeklbg to prove that I have a claim to the Earldom of Ormsby, I would ask you to desist. Let matters be as they are. I am quite content to remain plain Idris Brenkspear, and to leave to you the coronet of the ilavengars. I do not believe that I am of roble birth, but ln any case I will do nothing detrimental to your position." "My position!" thought Lorelie, bitterly, as she recused the atttmpt made upon her life. "Heaven help rn to escape from my position! But she said, aloud, "you are doing a wrong to your future wife. She may not appreciate the generosity that de prives her of a coronet." "My future wife!" smiled Idris. "I shall never marry." "And why not?" ; 'Ther do not love who love twice. Lorelie, knowing his meaning, trembled, miserable and happy at one and the same t,"ie"am glad he continued, "to have this cnortunlty of saying good-bye. Lady w ai den, for I leave England soon, probably forever." liV Lorelie received this news with disma. Whether the feeling of pleasure derivable lrom Idris's friendship was a right or a wrong deling, she had never stopped to inouire. but it was a pleasure, and a sense of 'desolation fell upon her on hearing that she wan to enjoy it no longer. "A friend of mine has received a secret commission from the Indian government to explore Thibet, the tour to include the forbidden city of Lassa. I have agreed to accompany him." . Loreile was not ignorant of the perils at tending such an enterprise. "You will never return." she cried. "So much the better," he answered quietly. . , She danced at him for a moment, and then her eve& fell, for she understood him. Involuntarily her mind was led to contrast thp hsuband. who had sought to take her life Nlth Idii. so anxious to keep her name fair before the world: Idris. whose love was such that he was willing to sacrifice evervthintf-even his life-for her sake! Sh could not hide the tears glistening be nath her laches. The situation wa3 a try ing one for both, but fortunately at this moment ü third person appeared on the " rr.rir. TTiprced from the garden porch. and Lorelle, averting her head, essayed to thr. tr.irrs of tears from her ejes. Beatrice gave her visitor a glad greet ing, but there was a subdued air about her. due, as Lorelie Knew, 10 suuu thought of Idris's departure. "Has Mr. Breakspear told you that he Is toing to leave us?" she asked, and receiv ing au affirmative, she continued mourn fuTlv: "As this is perhaps the last time we shall be together you must stay with us as we are just ;u'ut v. Impulsively. "We will persuade him to give up thi3 mad journey to Thibet. Lady 1 OIUCU "Do not recall my unhappiness by using that name: besides it is not justly mine. Call rne Lorelie." "Lorelie. then. I will come "to Ravenhall and live there with you." Lorelie's smile was like sunlight sweep ing over a dark landscape. "If anything could make me happy it would be your daily companionship, dearest Beatrice." "It is not safe for you to live alone at Kavenhall." continued Beatrice. "I will return with you to keep watch and ward over you. Together we will work and make what discoveries we can. If Idiis really be the owner of Ravenhall we will do our best to establish him in his rights." The light of justice shone from Beatrice's eyes. There should be a righting of the wrong. Since the earl and Ivar had not hesitated at murder, let them suffer the punishment due to their guilt by losing their rank and estates. "And when that Is done," said Lorelie, "it will be for me to retire to a convent, and for Idris to place a coronet on these tresses," she added, touching Beatrice's hair. "Ah, no!" replied Beatrice sadly. "He will not marry me. Idris never loved any one but you. It is impossible ior mm to have you, yet he will never love any one el?e." Lorelie was touched to the quick by Beat rice's look of distress. She felt that if sho herself had not appeared upon the scene, Beatrice might now be happy in the love of Idrls. "Beatrice, believe me. I would gladly die if my death would enable you to gain his love." Beatrice did not doubt the rlncerity of this assurance. Brave-hearted and generous the little maiden harbored no resentment against her rival. "He will come to you some day," said Lorelie, kissing the other tenderly. "He has been with you long enough to know your worth. He will And a want of some thing in his life when he is away from vou. He will begin to ask himself what it is. 'It is Beatrice his heart will answer: and he will return and seek you." Beatrice shook her head, refusing to be lieve in this bright forecast. "Have vou told Idris of the attempt made upon jour life?" she asked. "No." "We shall be doing well not to tell him of it. He is hot-blooded where your wel fare is concerned: his rage would lead him to horspuhin both the earl and Ivar, or p Hi HJlf CHI! r Hi fnj CI EVERY DAY IN THE YEAR. FLETCHER B. WAGXEF. Fletcher B. Wagner, son of Dr. Theodore Wagner, of this city, was one of two from Indiana successfully to pass the examina tion last April for the Cecil Rhodes schol arships to Oxford University. Young Waener is an Earlham College and a Le- land Stanford University student, and also a rrndnntp of Khortridce llich School. In all of these institutions he was a success ful student and carried away many honors in literary work. He was regarded as one of the best debaters at Leland Standford and won the Carnot medal for his work In debating. Last year he was on the Har vard debating team that defeated Yale and the team this year that defeated Prince ton. While in Shortridgo he was one of the founders and the nrst editor of the Echo, the high school paper. He is twenty-two years old and Is at present taking the law school course at Harvard University. G. E. Hamilton, a student at Earlham College, was the other successful candidate for the scholarship. The passing of the examination, however, does not entitle the winner to a scholarship at once, and the Indiana commission must yet pass on the one who will be allowed to take advantage of the offer first, as only one student will be allowed to go from this State every two yt'ars. In addition to the successful can didates Charles R. Robbins, of De Fauw, took the qualifying examination. The ex amination was held under the direction of a committee of five presidents of Indiana colleges in the office of the state superin tendent of public instruction. One hundred and twenty candidates from different States and Territories ln the Union passed the examination. The suc cessful candidates from the different States are: Alabama. James H. Kirkpatrick; Arkan sas, Neil Caruthers; Georgia, lt. I. Brooks, T. H. Wade: Illinois. G. E. Beggs, John J. Clifford, Robert L. Henry; Indiana. George E. Hamilton, Fletcher B.

To allay any fears which may be felt con cerning the safety of Tomlinson Hall in case of fire, arrangements have been made with Fire Chief Coots whereby firemen will be stationed at regular Intervals about the building to-night, when the regular com mencement exercises of the Shortridge High School will be held. The precaution is taken in view of the recent agitation be tween the state factory inspector and the city officials, which has caused many peo- 3. pie to place an uncertainty in the safety of the hall. Until the late agitation Tomlinson Hall has been considered reasonably safe in case of fire and no hesitancy has been shown by the people in attending public funcUons. With firemen stationed there will be no ne cessity for any one to feel alarmed. The largest gatherings of Indianapolis havq been held In Tomlinson Hall and there has never before been a dread of fire. As a result of the letter sent by State Factory Inspector McAbee to Mayor Holtz man and referred to the building inspector Mr. Stanley made an examination of Tom linson Hall yesterday afternoon. He said last night after his Investigation that there need be no alarm felt, as the building is one of the safest in the city in case of fire. The corridors, he said, are all fireproof, and about the only combustible material Is the floor in the main auditorium (and that is laid in cement) and the boxes which were recently put In. "Few buildings ln Indianapolis," Mr. Stanley said, "are as safe in case of fire as Is Tomlinson Hall." Mr. Stanley will make a report later glv tT.fr his decision as to the importance of making the changes recommended by Mr. McAbee. ..O.M 1) 431.450 000 30.6i6 4,500 5,on6 81,350 300,000 30,000 The partial collapse of two buildings and the serious Injury of one man, accompanied by the narrow escape of fifteen others, was the record of an exciting afternoon in building circles made yesterday. While carpenters working on a small building, in the course of erection at 613 Russell avenue, were preparing to strength en the roof by adding extra collar beams to the rafters, it collapsed, throwing Jos eph Ilach, of 315 Sanders street, high in the air, as the portion upon which he was tinned to the ground. Ilach alighted on his left eide, sustaining injuries to his head and severe bruises all over the body. The City Dispensary ambulance was called and the injured man taken to his home. But for a fortunate circumstance, the collapse of the inner wall in the new Turner flat building, under construction at 133 North Delaware street, would have been a far more serious affair. ; The collapse came at 12:45, just fifteen minutes before the fifteen men employed at the point where the wall fell, returned to work. This wall was supported by three six-inch steel columns, and these were snapped off oo thnnsrh thev were straws. It is said hat a vein of auirksand is directly under the brick piers which supported these coi mnc and that the nicrs began to settle, re- Biiltine in the collapse. No less than 125,000 pounds of bricks fell with the wall. The damage to both buildings was mated at $2,500.
