Wick Blue Flame Oil Cook-Stove
you frill see why this is so. The heat from the
chimney of the '"New Perfection" is concentrated
under the kettle and not dissipated through the room
by radiation. Thus it does the work of the coal
range without its discomfort. Ask your dealer about
this stove — if not with him, write our nearest agency.

Calendon Kidnapping Case
mv. revolver? Good . Telephone immediately
to Calendon to take the next train for Ant
werp, and meet me at the station. I don't
want to miss it." He threw himself into a
heavy overcoat, slipped the revolver^ into a
pocket, jammed on his hat. and was ott before
Valeska could question.
She waited in the studio, however, so ab
sorbed had she become in the mystery, so
much she feared that, when A-tr.j did return.
it would be with some dreadful news.
IT was late in the evening when a telegraph
A boy arrived with a message for her. Eagerly
she tore ... It read:
"Problem 201: White night to king's

life. <>nly the solution to a 'knotty chess

at Antwerp, at eight bjclock that even

by ... a burly local constable.
" "■ Plenty of time and a clear field; I think."
said Astro, his eyes dancing with the anticipa
tion of peril imminent: "ami unless I'm
very much mistaken in my understanding.
Mr.' Calendon, I'll have s. -c pleasant news
for you before long."
"I hope to Heaven you I' said the old
man. "I can't stand thi-. n.uch longer. I've
sent Mrs. Calendon V> the hospital. Her
nerves have quite given way .....
I only hope that it we get the boy we'll find
the dastard that stole him a> well!" His look

"I;am afraid you won't get that oppor

out his watch and pausing to inspect it under
a gas lam] "Mr. Stacey was 1> >m under an
evil planet and in an evil House of the Heav

arrest in the Beau Rivage Apartments. One
of his accomplices has just left here for New

Another will soon be taken [ have been

g.iged in a shady bu.-ine-s hereabouts. We
need only him to solve the last shreds of
mystery in this affair. I've already seen him
in my crystals, dressed in black It remains
to find him on the material plane."
They walked rapidly through the outskirts
I of the village, past quite a stretch of open

once, to say. " There must l>e some change of
affairs, Astro: for so far as I can find the gang
didn't speculate to-day in the stocks I tipped
off in 'The Era.' I had a c:r. Ie of my friends
attempting to influence the market: but it
got away from them altogether. We simply
couldn't sell enough to make any effect. The
Fountainet Company common st.>ck jumped
seven {>oints. when I sold out. and I'm about
fifty thousand ahead of the game. If my son
is restored to me. I'll have good cause to be
happy to-night." He relapsed into silence.

There was no response. The constable un-

in excitement "Harold! Harold!" he cried
aloud, and began a hasty search through, the
rooms. He was followed by Astro and the
constable; but. after a thorough inspection:
no living tiling was found except a canary,
which, awakened by the disturbance, warbled
shrilly in the sitting room.
The constable threw open the cellar, door.

they would support a weight of eighty tons.
The hair on the head grows at the rate of
about one-fiftieth of an inch each. day. or about
seven inches a year. An eyelash grows much
faster, say about one-twentieth of an inch each
day. until it reaches a length ....... of
an inch, when it falls out. The life of an eye
lash is about one hundred and twenty days.
It just takes about the ;\i!::e length of time,
from one hundred and twenty to one hundred
and forty days! f<>r the fingernails td be entirely
