E PECULIAR ADVENTURES OF THE LAXWORTHY TRIO THE SUN, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1918. H i in nmn wus awaiting the service df his dinner In the miignlllccnt buffet of the dare de Lyon. He sat lit n table laid for three, on Uu. tight liand Hide of the entrance and dose to the window. From below came Ihc mnnoll of the train. In appearance he was) of Homewhat l,,? 1 1 nt it medium height, of unuthletlc, lnit frail. hHlniie. His head wan '(hi .i-t forward, mm though he irtlletiil with a fhronle stoop. He nii steel rimmed spectacles with the ali .i, line who has taken to them too lit. in life to have escuped the constunt M"i ,lf peering, which had given to i.

In live mlnutex," he doclnreil, "my fri inN will have arrived. The service of dinner can then proceed." Tin man bowed and withdrew. Al-nio.-i ,i.x he left the table the swinging doois opened once more to admit an oilnr traveller. Ills eyes fell upon the roliMiv figure, now deep In a book, ,.iiid at the table on his right. With the pleased smile of one who greets tu ulil friend he approached the table it which Mr. John T. Laxworthy sat .itting. Tin- Idiosyncrasies of grout men are aHas worth noting, and Mr. John T. I.ivworthy was, without a doubt, fore deemed from the cradle to a certain measure of celebrity. Kveu now. when his ft lend stood by his side, he did not at nine look up. Slowly, and with his t)e. still riveted upon the panes he was itud.vlng, he held out his left hand. "1 nni glad to see you, Anderson," ho Mid. "Shall It be white or red?" Mr John T. Laxworthy closed his look with n little sigh of regret and placed a marker within It. He then carefully adjusted his spectacle and made a delltx-rate survey of his com panion. Finally he nodded, slowly and approvingly. A joung man who had Just complct- td a leisurely survey of the room dropped his monocle .and came toward them He was young, he was F.nutlsh, he vv.i well bred, he was an athlete. He beamed upon the two men. How are you. Forrest? How do you do. I.axworthy?" he exclaimed. "Look- Inc jolly tit. both of you," he went on amiably. "What a necktie, chief! You twin to let me choose "em for you." Mr. I.iivvorthy raised his glass. Then he Inclined his head In turn to eich of his companions. "1 nm glad to see you both," he said. "(Mi the whole. I think that I may con rratulate you. You have done well, t drink to our success." There was a short pause. Presently Mr I..txvvorthy commenced to peel an apple. "A great portion of this last year," he -.lid, "which you two have spent appaieiitly with profit In carrying out my Instructions, I have given to the hi fiit ion of a certain pcholarly tone which I feel convinced Is my proper environment. Incidentally I have devoted myself to the study of r.inoti" schools of philosophy. I have mered from my studies with a clearer and more decisive outlook upon the fpwi it scheme of life. "In one very Interesting treatise I found s-wr.d obvious truths Ingeniously put. A certain decadence In the material jropeiity of an Imaginary state Is fir uly proved to lie due to a too blind InllAivIng of the tenets of what U Known as the hysterical morality, as HEiiii'st the decrees of what we might call expediency. A little sentiment, llko pirhc In cookery, Is a good thing. Too much I fatal. A little sufficient mora'.ty Is excellent; a superabundance disastrous. "Society Is divided into two classes, tho-c who have and those who have decile to have. The one must always ploy upon the other. They are there fore .uways changing places. It Is this cell' i ued movement which lends on ertrx to the human race. As soon as it i si-pended, degeneration must fol low a matter of course. It Is for tho-i w ho recognize this great truth to follow and obey Its tenets." Mr Lixworthy was. silent for several moments. He was glancing In medita tive fashion through the pages of the book in which he had been engrossed Jbefoie the arrival of his friends. Finally tC Closed It. "There are some sentences there," he rem.li Led. "wonderfully Illustrative of my meaning.

They took possession of an empty table close at hand. The young man sank Into his chair with a little sigh of exhaustion, "A liUetir brandy, quick," the older man ordered. "My friend h fatigued." Sydney took thu Imttlo which stood upon their table, poured out a wine glassful and stepped across and ac costed the young man, "Do me the favor of drinking this, sir," he begged. "I cun see that you are In need of it," The young man accepted It with a smile of gratitude. His companion echoed his thanks. Sydney stepped back and resumed his seat. In u few minutes he leaned across the table. "The 1'aradlse Hotel, Hyeres," he said under his breath. Mr. Laxworthy shrugged his shoul ders. "Kvcn you, my friends, are not wholly deceived, I presume, by the young mini's appearance." They evidently were. Mr. laxworthy sighed. ''Your powers of observation are, without doubt, exceedingly stunted. Let mo assure you that your syuiiathy for that young man Is entirely wasted." "You know who he Is?" Sjdney asked. "I believe so," lixvvorlhy admitted. "I can hazard a gues even as to his companion's identity. IJut- the Para dise Hotel, Hyeres: Anderson, watch the door. Sydney, watch your friends there." A tall, broad shouldered man. with fair mustache and wearing a long trav elling coat, had entered the buffet. The majority of those present suffered his scrutiny untiotlclng. Indifferent. Not so these two men who had last entered. livery nerve of the young man's body seemed to have become tense. His hand had stolen into the pocket of his travel ling coat, and with a little thrill Sidney saw the glitter of steel half shown for a moment between his interlocked lin gers. No longer was this young mnn'st countenance the countenance of an In valid. It had become, Instead, like the face of a wolf. The man came slowly down the room. Laxworthy and his two associates watched. Their two neighbors at the next table sat In well simulated Indif ference. The newcomer made no secret of his destination. Ho advanced straight to their table and came to a standstill Immediately in front of them. Of all the words which passed be tween those three men, not one was audible. Only at the last the elder man touched the label attached to his bag, and they heard his words: "The Paradise Hotel. Hyeres We shall be there for at least a month." The newcomer stood perfectly still for several moments, as though deliber ating. Then this stranger raised his hat slightly and turned away. "The Taradlse Hotel at Hyeres," he repeated. "I shall know, then, where to find you." "One might be Interested to know the meaning of these things." Sydney mur mured softly. A woman, wrapped In magnificent furs, who was passing their table, was run Into by a clumsy waiter and dropped a satchel from her finger, Syd ney hastened to restore It to her and was rewarded by a gracious smile. "You seem fated to be my good Sa maritan to-day," she remarked. "Per haps we shall meet In the Luxe, If you are going south. I am going to Hyeres to tho Paradise Hotel. Why do you smile?" "My friends and I." he explained, "were at that moment discussing a sug gestion to proceed to the same place." "I congratulate you," I.axworthy re marked dryly as Sydney resumed his seat. "A most Interesting acquaintance, yours." "Do you know who she Is?" the young man asked. "I only met her on the train." 'She Is Madame Hertrand. Her hus band at one time held a post In the I'oielgn Office under Fiiure. For same First Futurist House and Garden Finished for Inspection of a Bewildered Public J l "ST when every one thought the Cubist fancy had received a body blow through the action of the directors of the Paris Salon In re fusing to give a place to the weird productions of the Post-Impressionist painters a new phase of the cult crops up in the shape of one of the most amazing private residences ever con ceived by human Ingenuity gone wrong. The new futurist residence Is to be seen a Chester, Pa. Visitors are Hock ing there from near nna far to inspect It, and the proudest man In Pennsyl vania Is the creator of the Cubist struc ture, Kdward Dlckerson. Mr. Dlckerson is a business man of Chester, and his new residence thrusts its unconven tional architecture on the passerby In one of the most classy neighborhoods of the town. As the pedestrian ap proaches the new house and grounds ho sees what appears to be a handsome .luatiuting the possibilities of Lcfant stood as though turned to stone. "Am 1 in command reason or other, he was discredited, and since then he has died. There was some scandal about Madame Hertrand herself, hut nothing definite ever came to light." "Madame seems to survive the loss of her husband," Forrest Anderson re marked. Laxworthy held up his hand. "We have llnlshed, for the moment, with the Madame Dertrands of tho world," he announced. "After all, they are for the pygmies. Here comes food for giants. You can both look. They are probably used to It. You will see the two greatest personages on earth." His companions gazed eagerly toward the door. Two men were standing there. One was middle aged, gray headed, with somewhat woin, but keen face The other was taller, with black hair streaked with gray, a face half Jewish, half romantic, a skin like Ivory. "The one nearest you." Laxworthy an nounced, "Is Freeling I'o union. The newspapers will tell vmi (hat his fot tune exceeds the national debt of any country In the wot Id. He is, without doubt, the richest man that was ever born. There has never yet breathed an emperor whose upraised finger could provoke or stop a war, whose careless word could check tin- prosperity of the proudest nation that ever breathed. These things Freeling Pnignlon can do." "And the other?" Anderson whispered. "It Is chance," Mr. Laxworthy sa d. "which placed a sceptre of unlimited power In the hands of Hlchard Freeling Polgnton, It Is his own genius which vvnll of stucco surrounding n substan tial residence with columns of the same material. When he gets sufficiently near to dissect the material used In the building the result is nmazing. With sufficient means to gratify his whim, Mr. Dlckerson decided that his new residence should be constructed of the most original material to be found in the building business or nut of it, and so be In harmony with the Fu turist plan of his house. He looked around the extensive estate thut be owns at Chester and gathered the ma terial from the collection of odds and ends he had acqureil In n lifetime In the contracting business. Old sewer pipes, cobblestones, odd bricks, paving stones, old bottles, rem nants of doorsteps, stone Jars, broken crockery, a heterogeneous collection of second hand building material and own remnnnts of Iron nnd steel work were gnthered together to build tho house, All were wedded by means of a mass of old drain pipes, paving blocks and M a g n i fa q u has made the Marquis Lefant the great est power in the diplomatic world." "I never even heard of him," Sydney admitted. "These things are new to you," Mr. Laxworthy continued. "The world's his tory Is marked for you by what you read In the dally papers. Fur every great happening there must be an ob vious cause. You arc one of tho vast public, an acceptor of obvious caties "Yet look at that man. It was his decision which brought about war be tween Itussla and Japan. It was he who stopped the declaration of war agnlnst Germany by our own Prime Minister nt the time of the Algeciras dllllculty. There Is little that he cannot do." A maltre d'hotel paused and whispered confidentially In Mr. Laxworthy'. ear: "The gray gentleman down there, sir," ho announced, "Is Mr, Freeling Polgn ton, the gruit American multi-millionaire." laxworthy nodded slowly. "Ih he going to Monte Carlo?" The attendant shook his head. "I was speaking to them a moment ago, sir. Mr. polgnton and his friend re going for a fortnight's quiet to the Paradise Hotel at Hyeres." A black cloud, long and with Jagged edges, passed away from the face of the inooii. Tho plain of Hyeres wn gradually revealed, and beyond the phalanx of lights on the warships lying in the bay. The hotel on the hillside stood sharply out against the dark bai kgroiind, L'pon the balcony of one of tho rooms concrete, without much care being taken as to the Juxtaposition of one odd piece to any other odd piece. The result can best be Judged by reference to the pictures. As was said, nt a dis tance It Isn't so bad, but a close Inspec tion causes astonishment to give place to amazement nnd amazement to amuse ment. I tu t Mr. Dlckerson Is very proud of hN creation nnd the number of visitors that the place has attracted tickles him. He has a story to tell concerning the manner In which he conceived and con structed the house, "1 met n chap In Chicago who an noyed mo considerably," said the origi nator of the Futurist house. "He was from New York and 1 took a dislike to him from the start because of the way ho referred to that village as the only place worth thinking about. 1 was also annoyed by the way he pronounced New York; but let that pass. "This man was the centre of crowd cart wheels. An interesting e By E. Phillips Oppenheim or you?" said Laxworthy. upon the second floor a man was stand ing with his back to .the wall. He looked around at the flooding moonlight. From the adjoining balcony n thin rope was hanging. The young man gazed helplessly nt tho end, which had slipped from his fingers. He was face to face with the almost insoluble problem of how to regain the shelter of his own room. The man looked back Into the room from which he had escaped and down at the end of the swinging rope. To re turn Into the room was Insanity. To stay where ho was was to rlk being seen by the earliest passerby or the first person who chanced to look out from his window. To try to pass to his own veranda without the aid of that rope which he had lost waj an Im possibility. The silence of the night was strange ly, almost harshly broken from the In terior of the hotel. An alarm bell, harsh and dlsoorthint, rang out a brazen note of terror. Lights suddenly flashed In the windows, footsteps hurried along the corridor. The man outside upon the balcony set his teeth and cursed. The room behind him was speedily Invaded. Mine. Hertrand, her beautiful hair tied up only with pink ribbon, her eyes kindling with excitement, re ceived a stream of agitated callers. "It was I who rang the danger bell," mad.ime declared Indignantly. "There has been a man In my room. Not two minutes since I opened my eyes, and he disappeared Into my sitting room. I saw him distinctly. I could not recog nize him, for he kept his face turned nt the convention I was attending. He was telling all who cared to listen to him that his designs for an original looking bungalow had won him various prizes. He had photographs with him and was showing these In corroboration of his claim to be the biggest man in he bungalow architecture Held. "When I got home 1 set nbout build ing the house nnd wall that you sec. I thought It quite line when It was Mulshed, and I waited anxiously for my Chicago friend from Noo Yawk to come along. He didn't come and I had about forgotten the Incident when one day, while out driving, a policeman stopped me and told me some one wanted to see me at police headquarters. "I drove there, and sure enough it was my architectural acquaintance. I drove him out to the house nnd never enjoyed anything so much in my life as I did his wonder and astonishment when ho saw my modest attempt at orlgi nallly In the building line. He had detail of the wall odd piece in away. Hither he has t waited through the sitting room door and down the cor rldor, or he is still there, or he Is hid lug In this room," "The Jewels of mndamc!" tho man ager gasped. "The pearls of madnmc, tho string of pearls?" "Tint Is safe," mailame admitted. "My diamond collar too is In Its place." The manager and two of the guests searched the sitting room, which oHiied to the left from the bedroom. Tho search wus of necessity not n long one; there was no one in the sitting room. "Then the burglar has escaped!" Mme. Hertrand cried. "Ho so good, Monsieur lliiiler, as to nt once examine the wardrobe and to look underneath my bed. I shall never sleep soundly again in this hotel." M. Holder dived under the valance. It was Just at that moment that Mme. Hertrand, gazing Into the plate glass mirror of the iwaiclrobe, received a shock. Distinctly she saw a man's faco reilected there. She stood for a moment quite still, her hand pressed to her side. Then sho turned her head and looked out of the French windows which led onto the bal cony. There- was nothing to be seen. She looked across at M. Heldcr, whoso head had disappeared Inside the ward robe. Then she stole up to the window and glanced once onto the lialcony. "Madame." M. Holder declared, "the room Is empty. Your sitting room also Is empty. There remains," he added, "only the balcony." He advanced a step. Mine. Hertrand was standing in front of the window. "The balcony I have examined my self," she said quietly. "There Is no one thete." "Ill that case, mailame," M. Heldcr declared, "we must conclude that the In truder escaped through your sitting room door Into the corridor. Madame can at least assure me that nothing of great value Is missing?" Mme. llertrand, though pale, was graciously pleased to reassure the in quirer. M. Heldcr drew himself up on the threshold and permitted himself a bow. "Madame," he said, "will accept this expression of my infinite regret that her slumbers should have been so dis turbed." "I thank you very much, Monsieur Holder," she answered graciously. "Clood night." Madame paused for a moment to lis ten to his footsteps down the corridor. Then she moved forward to the door and locked It. Then she walked deliber ately to the French windows, threw them open and stepped onto the bal cony. "flood evening, Monsieur Sydney Wing; or, rather, good morning." The young man gripped for a moment the frail balustrade. "Madame!" he faltered. 'Insldel" she whispered Imperatively. "You do not think of my reputation, monsieur, that you show yourself so clearly here, in nn hour the dawn will come.'1 The young man stepped only too will. Ingly inside the room. She followed him and closed the windows. "You will gather, M. Sidney Wing," she said, "that I am disposed to .-.pare you. I knew that you were outside, even while my room was being searched. I preferred first to hear your explana tion before I gave you up to be treated as a common burglar." The young man's courage was return ing fast. He lifted his head. "oh, madame," he murmured, "you are too gracious." He raided her hand to liN lips and kissed it. "You will come this way," she said, leading him Into the sitting room and turning on the electric light. "Now tell me, monsieur, and tell me the truth If you would leave this room a free man and without scandal. When I saw you first you were bending over that table. Upon It was my necklace, my earrings, a lace scarf, my chatelaine and vanity box, a few of my rings, perhaps a Jew elled pin or two. Now tell me exactly what you came for, what you have taken, and why?" to admit that I had gone him many better in originality. He nsked me how much I thought he could duplicate the material for. and I told him K',000. "I had no set design in putting up the columns and walls. Those demi johns yes, they happened to be empty, so I stuck them In with the rest. Then thoae old stone doorsteps they were lying around, doing no good, so I put them together to make an archway ef fect, as you see. "The cobblestones lilted 111 anywhere and the drain pipes nr.d various speci mens of bricks added to the color scheme, which is rather line, don't you think? Nothing came amiss. "I found an old broken down plough around the place nnd added that to the collection. The maker of that plough came nil the way from Massachusetts to see the wall that contained the relic. He was iih much Interested In mv new place oh the Chicago chap from Noo Yawk." centre is remains of a plough. The young nan held himself upright. ''Madame," he said, "think. Was there nothing else upon that table?" "I can think of nothing." "To-night," he continued, "you were scarcely so kind to me. Wo danced to gether, It Is true, hut there were many others. There wus tho French Ad miral, for Instance." She was a coquette, and she shrugged her shoulders us sho smiled. "And you, M. Sydney Wing, what have you to say that t should not dance and be friendly with this gentleman?" ''Alas!" he said. "I have no right to find fault. Yet two nights ago madame gave me the rose I asked for. To night you remember?" Sho looked at him softly yet steadily. "You told me," he continued, "that tho rose bcdonned to him who dared to pluck It." 'It Is a saying," she murmured. "I was not In earnest," Sydney Wing sighed deeply. "Madame," he declared, "1 come of A literal nation. When we love, the word of u woman means much to us. To nlglit there seemed nothing dearer to mo In life than the possession of that rose. I told myself that your challenge was accepted. I told myself that to night I would sleep with that roe on the pillow by my side." Slowly he unbuttoned his coat. From the breast pocket he drew out u hand kerchief and unfolded It. In the centre, crushed, lay u durk red rose. "Monsieur!" sho cried Incredulously, "monsieur, you mean to tell me that for the sake of that rose you climbed from your balcony to mine you ran these risks?" "For the sake of this rose, madame, and all that It means to me," he an swered. She drew a long sigh. "Monsieur Sydney," she said, "I urn very glad Indeed that when I saw your face reilected In the mirror of my wnrilrolic something urged me to send Monsieur Holder away, I am very glad." ".Madame' " She held up her linger. "Monsieur." she whispered, "not an other word. I have risked my reputa tion to save you. See, the door is be fore you. Unlock It softly. He sure there Is no one lu the corridor when you leave. Do not attempt to close it. I myself in a few minutes time will return and do that." "Hut, madame " he began. She pointed Imploringly toward the door. Very noiselessly the young man opened the door of the sitting room, glanced up and down, and with swift, silent footsteps made his way to his own apartment. There were drops of perspiration still upon his forehead aa lie stepped out onto the balcony and wound up his rope. It was the most cheerful hour of the day at the Paradise Hotel the hour before luncheon. Every one seemed to be out of doors. Mr. Laxworthy and .Mr. Forrest Anderson had Just passed along the front and Were threading their way up the winding path which led through the pine woods ut the back of the hotel. Mr. Freeling Polgnton and the Marquis Lefant were sitting a little way up among the pine trees. Le fant was leaning forward, ills eyes fixed steadily upon that streak of blue Med iterranean. "I am quite sure," he said, "that I can rely upon my Information. At a quarter past twelve precisely the tor pedo Is to be tired." "Which Is the Magnltique, anyway?" Mr. Freeling Polgnton Inquired. Lefant pointed to the largest of the gray battleships which were riding at anchor. Then Ids finger slowly trav ersed tho blue space until It paused at a black object set out very near tho Island of Hyeres. He glanced at Ills watch. "A quarter past," he muttered. "Look! Look ! " The black object had disappeared. A column of white water rose gracefully Into the air and descended. It wits finished. Lefant leaned toward his com panion, "You and I," he said, "have seen a thing which Is going to change the naval history of the future. You and 1 alone can understand why the Fivnili admiralty have given up building bat-tle-tilps; why, even their target prac tice hero and at Cherbourg continues as a matter of form only." Freeling Polgnton withdrew his cigar from his mouth, "I can't say." he admitted, "that I have ever given any particular atten tion to these Implements of warfare, because I hate them all; but there's nothing now, anyway. In a torpedo. What's the difference between this one and the ordinary sort?" "This one," Lefant answered, "can bo llred at a range of live i..lle.s and re lied upon to hit a mark little larger than the plate of a battleship with absolutely scientltlc accuracy. There Is no question of aim at all. Just ns you work out an exact sot Ir. a surveying expedition by scientltlc Instruments, so you can decide precisely the spot which that torpedo shall hit. It travels at the pace of ten miles a minute, and It has a penetration which has never t'en equalled " Freeling Polgnton shivered a little. "I'd like to electrocute the man who Invented It," he declared tersely, "You nre wrong," Lefant replied. "The man who Invented that torpedo Is the friend of your scheme, nnd not the enemy. It Is your desire. Is It not the treat ambition of your life to securn for the world universal peace?" 'Marquis,' was tho reply, "there Is no nrm breathing who o.iuM, sav how much I nm worth, Capitalize my pros ettl Income, and you might call It five hundred million pounds. Put a quar ter or a million somewhere In the hank for me, and I'd give tho rest to sen every army in F.tiropo disbanded, every warship turned into a trading vessel," "Just no," Lefant assented, 'Now listen. The surest of nil ways to pre vent war Is to reduce the art of killing to such a certainty that It becomes an absurdity even to take the field. What nation will build battleships which can be destroyed with the touch of a linger at any time from practically any dis tance? "I tell you that this Invention, which only one or two people in the world outside of that battleship yonder know of at present, Is the beginning of the end of all naval warfare, There Is only one thing to be done to drive this home. No nation must be allowed to keep that secret for her own. It must lielong to all." "I begin to understand," Mr, Freeling Polgnton remarked, "(iuess that's where you come In, Isn't It?" "I hope so," Lefant assented. "I hnve already spent n hundred thousand dol Continued on Fowrffritfn Page.
