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

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

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.

life. "Heaven help rn to escape from my

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!

"Has Mr. Breakspear told you that he Is

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,

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

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
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

making the changes recommended by Mr.
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
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.

Drujrcists and grocers who, by the new
liquor ordinance are compelled to take out
a license, have been given ample oppor
tunity to pay their fees of JloO. and City
Comptroller Dunn is now preparing to
bring the law to bear upon those wno have
failed to get the license.
Yesterday forty-two of these dealers were
registered as having paid the fee. How
ever, there are many more than this num
ber in the city who retail liquor. One thou
sand notices were sent out to grocers and
druggists the day before the ordinance
went into effect. About half of these. It
is estimated, are selling liquor and should
have the license. City Comptroller Dunn
savs that after this week steps will prob
ably be taken toward making those who
have not the license pay the fee. All po
licemen have been warned by the comp
troller and arrests may ionow at any urne.
