SYNOPSIS Ztttiom is left an orphan at an early age. Hct father is killed in a gold, mine hit ha discovered. Half an hour after learning of the death of her husband, Zudora's totothen a tight-rope walker with a circus is stricken With vertigo, falls and is killed. Zudofa and the fortune from the ninc, which grows to be worth $30,000,000, are left in the nuardianshfy of Frank Keene, brother of Zudora's mother. Zu dora, giving promise of great beauty, reaches the age of 18. The uncle, who ha3 set himself up as a Hindu mystic and is known ai Hassani All, determines in his'grecd that Zudora must die before she can have a chance to conic into her wealth, so that it will be left to him. Hassam prevails upon the girl to leave her money m his hands for thrie years more and to say nothing to any one about the for tune. Further, ho sees on ob staclo to his scheme in John Storm, a young lawyer, for whom Zudora has taken a fancy, and he commands the girl to put the man out of her mind. Storm asks Hassam for Zudora in marriage, but Hassam coldly refuses. Zu dora insists that if she cannot marri Storm she shall not marry any one. "Welt; well," replies Hassam, "if you take such a s.land, I'll compromise. Solve my next SO cases and you can marry him; fail in a single case and you must renounce him?' Zudora, using the knoiulcdgc gained from years of association with her uncle, unravels a bafilina mystery and wins her first case. CHAPTER I-(Contlnuca.1 THE MY3TETIY OI' THE SPOTTED COLLAR. B When the trial began it looked very ad for John Storm. The altcrca- ion with the decedent in court was evlewcd, the dueling challenge, their rcvious enmity, the twelve unac countable hours. In the balcony Has- lam Ali and the man Burns watched he proceedings with something riipre han normal interest. When the jury finally received the judge's instruc tions, every one conccucu mat joint torni-was a lOat man; nothing could ave liijn Fron the .chair. Suddenly, up the aisle toward the judge's desk came a veiled woman: Stopl" she cried; "it uas I II" Then she fainted. The judge, the lattorncys, the reporters, the specta tors, all roserjn-.thlsir,a4na;ccroenr.. A. woman,!.. After the. tableau came con fusion and chaos. The judge signed to the jury to return to their chairs. Storm, despftc the deputy sheriffs, pushed' his way to the woman's side1 and 6iHy raised the veil. "Zudora?1' He turned resolutely to the judge. "Your honor, there is some rnistakp. 'This young -woman has hadmothing to do with the death of QieriVcTth' It is utterly impossi ble." "Thai remains to be seen, Mr. Storm. Return to the docket, if you please 1'.' "But shq Js inn'Qccntl" "Deputies!" called the judge sternly. He was'sofry for Storm; but duty was duty, none the less. The court was eventually cleared." Storm .was taken back to Jus cell. Hassam Ali and Bums went, away ta' gether, Immediately Zudora sought the office .of the District Attorney.! whom she jquncl liarangmngi with tne counsel for the defense. ' "If I can convince you. two gentle men, will that be sufficient?"' .she. asked, "It will." affirmed theiDistrici" At torney. r"But why can't' you give us' 'the man's name now " he askedpetu-j lantiy, mere was not tne Biigntest dqubt in his mind that John Storm' had committed the crintc. .'-DlsUic.ti Attorneys all over the thJs fcroiid' land have the faculty of seeing 'every man guilty until he is proved inno cent, which is quite the contrary to the letter of the Jaw, "To tell His name now would spoil everything," declared Zudora. "I have no evidence at this moment that wou!4 hold in'Jaw. but I'll guarantee to place it In your, hands b'efore midnight. You two. will' cony; secretly to my house andI wijl secrete jrou behind some cut'ainsandjljero you will hear the evidence frtrtn the man's own lips." "Very 'well," said the District At tQiney. "But I warn you that any Mn.d of oriental mummery will not pass as evidence." Zudora flushed a little, She knew that the genera) tfubjic, held her Utiole's vocation In centertipt. They would never realize what a wonder fully clever man h jyas, "Do you see tn$a pepcjl?"Uje ask ed; exhibiting a'atub. . "Yes." "It is the one. It is green IndeltbJe, jftt.a common everyday pencil.

As fa been said, the mystic roUnf possessed ,1 dozen secret exits. Froiri tj(is Upper one it was Hassam Ati's habit to take stock of his victims before meeting them personally He wAit'ed. Zudora began to ask,tlnilc5S qiles' tions. Burns eyed iier restlessly. Suddenly she sprungthe trap. She held up. the pencil, "This' ia'vours. isaw vou writincr with it. It fell to,4he floor where I ! found it. It is the s.ime ncneil that marked the collar' of Bicnrcith in his death struggles.", , Burns jumped lo his 'feet. Zudora did likewise, throwing on the powbr which set tliiygod Hypnos in motion. Burns tried to look away, but could not. Suddenly ,hc screamed and be gan to grovel. . "Yes, I killed bin! He stopped, cftoked , But another made a soriillf for the violet light, and received the full charge of eloctneity. ThcrccSyas a terrific' flash, and Burns stumbled and fell at Zudora's feet. Tha' attor neys rushed ill front behind tjtc cur tains. But .Burns was dead. ' Hassam Ali withdrew his, head, like a cobra that had concluded not to strike. He had lost a tool who, per haps, had known too much. But the significant fact remained that John Storm was still in his way. And Zudora had won her first case.

She said so herself in tho course of a nc-mliiuto Interview the llrst she ns granted this many a day. I'lrst she commented upon nn nrtlclo in a thcatrlcnl magazine in which it was alleged that work, In tho film studios breeds Immoral ly, and thnt conditions thcro are well nigh Indescribable. Sho said: "I do not believe that tho films breed moro Immorality than any other business would. Immorality ennnot be found In any of the llrst-cluss studios, for there It Is all hard work and strict business. I have been in the dmmatlc field alt my life, and it Is not the enso there- any more than anynhcro else. -I thlnk;lt Is perfectly absurd tcr say that a" manager or director can 'make' a star. They may get their particular favorite before (he people for a short -time, say six months or a ear, but, what is heard of them after that? No, it is tho public 4pmand that creates a star, and If thej want ou they will mnke you the star. Irrespective of the manager. Of coursp, cne must htvo ability and be willing to work hard. That nas been the trouble with 'many of the failures they did not "have enough experience and were brought out far too soon. ( "The public will go nnd seo Mary Pick ford now. no matter how poor her play may be. It Is only necessary to put her name In front of n theatre and them the public will respond. Playing for the tllms Is splendid work, and after my sea son closes I will appear In two moro Photoplays that I h&ve contracted for. I hope they will be outdoor subjects, for then the work Is much healthier and In teresting, for I love tha groat outdoors. My work In 'The Nightingale' was done In a hot, stuffy studio during Apgust, und j on can imagine just how one must suffer." The ORIGINAL STUDld. The first Edison Studio, or rather a combination of office and studio, was termed the ''Block Maria." It was a very crude affair as compared with the many studios of the present-day type. It was about 25 by 10 feet In size, movable, being arranged on pivots so that Its posi tion could be changed to follow the sun. This studio was located at Orange, N. J. WOMEN AS CAMERA MEN. Tho statement has boon widely cir culated that genuine war pictures are impossible to get, that mobilization ma neuvers and llbrailes furnish practically all of the war news In films. That this is contrary to the truth is proven every week In the Pathe projection room in Jersey City when the newly arrived negatlVes.are shown. Some of tho battle field views are so horrible that It is im passible (o make use of them. Piles of unburied dead ready to be cremated, long burial trenches filled with the mangled remains "of what once were men, and tangled heaps of human flotsam and Jet sam of the conflict are all shown. Such realism Is, of course, unadapted for pubjlc showing, " War pictures are, It is true, very diffi cult to get, but not so mucn so as in tho early days of the war It is interesting to note that, owing to the absence of most able-bodied Frenchmen on the firing line, that Pathe has been driven to the neces sity of using women aa camera men. The sight of these Paths "camera women," trudging along with camera, and helper, has become a fairly common sight In Paris. It Is reportd that they have proven themselves q(ilck to learn, reliable and competent, and certainly those who' bxcampuny tho army for tne, patpe News haye shown plenty of .nerve as well. tIn Several Instances they have been able-to get to places where camera men were not stowed, widen goes to show that human nature Is the same everywhere, and that a pretty feminine face and pleasant smile have a wonderful potency in overcoming difficulties. AN ANCIENT HINO. Donald I. Buchanan, one of the seen arlo writers of the Vltagraph Company, author of "UJ" and The Juggernaut. is the possessor of a unique ring; reputed, to b more than 40 years old, whleh ha bought for a few dpllar In a naw shop In Buenos Aires.

The liner took almost double her Ufcual time to complete the voyage from tho Danish capital to New York, owing to the fact that she was compelled to sl.ii t tho mine fields In the North Hen nnd to the north of Scotland, and take a circuitous route to avoid possible disas ter.
