Tragic Death of Young Bride Nancy Wynne Hears of More
People Who Have Influenza Church
Weddings Given Up
DTD you hear nlinut tlio tragedy In the
Karle family? You know ndlth. Mrs.
Atdcn t.ce, and Mrs. Lawrence Dllworth
Beggs have hoth hcen seriously 111 with
pncumonlx at Mrs. tlcggs' house In
llnvcrford. Kdlth was visiting Mrs.
Beggs and they both went down to
gether. Kor several days they Just
hung .between life and death, and last
night Kdlth died. Mrs.. Beggs was still
Just living this morning, and the family
Is hoping against hope, that she may
pull through. It is so terribly lyird for
Mrs. Karlc. and all the rest of the family,
Gladys, you know, has Just been home,
but has Bone back again to Oklahoma.
Mr, Beggs Is away from home, and Is Just
getting over pneumonia himself. Kortu
nately, Hnslgn Aldcn I.ec, who has been
away on Ills ship, curao homo unexpect
edly on Saturday, but It was a very sad
homecoming.. He has had Spanish Influ
enza, but Is getting better now. It all
seems so tragic, for Kdlth was bo young
and so lovely, and they have had such a
hard time ever since they have been mar
ried. You remember, Aldcn got orders to
' report to his ship. Just tho morning of tho
wedding, and they had planned for nt
least a week's trip. Since then he has
been crulslnR the coast, and Kdlth has
been going down South quite often so
that she could Hec him as often ns pos
sible, when his ship came Into port. It
has all been so pathetic and they have
been mi brave about It that this tragic
end of It nil Just makes your heart ache
for them.
THIS Influen7a Is surely changing 11 lot
of wedding plans. Kvery day you hear
of (mother marriage that was to have been
in church, being arranged for the house,
and tho large reception given up. Mrs.
Francis A. Alison of St.' Martin's has had
to recall her Invitations for the reception
after Francis wedding to K. Cunr.on Poult
ney tomorrow. The ceremony is to be ut
home as it was originally planned, but In
stead of a large reception there will be
Just the service with tho Immediate fami
lies present. If you had planned to be
married nt home It wouldn't be such a
disappointment to give up the reception,
but If you expected to have the ceremony
in church, and had got oui?clf all keyed
,up and then calmed down again and ocr
tho shnkey stage about walking down the
aisle before all thoso people, without look
ing too conscious or too scared or too
happy or too whlto or too blushing. I
should thlnlc It would bo u terrific blow.
Wouldn't 11?
IIIKAIl that Leonard Bcale has "caught"
Influenza. They are still out at .it.
David's, at Thlrdacre. And Hope Iteale's
liusband, Oliver Cnmwoll has It, too. They
are brothers-in-law, you know, and Oliver
Cromwell Is Mrs. Stotcsbury'H son., Mrs.
Stotcsbury, by thc way. Is asking for ice
cream nnd oranges" for the Navy Hospitals
Committee to give to the sailors who are
In the hospitals with influenza, or die
the wherewithal to buy the delicacies. The
sailors seem to want these two things more
than anything else, and the greatest desire
In the world Just- now Is to give any man
In any U. S. uniform, anything he wants,
ho I Imagine they won't wait long for
their Ice-cream. The fruit Is to be sent
to the Navy House, 1'21 South Eighteenth
IT'S getting bo that when you see some
one you haven't seen lately you don't
Bay "What have you been doing since I
saw you last?" You say, "How many of
your family have had It?" And everybody
knows Just exactly what you mean. It's
not funny at nil when you think uhout the
number of cases, but like everything else
Jn the world It has Its own little funny
glde, and anyhow, I think our soldiers
overseas are teaching us to hunt frantically
until we find something' amusing about
everything thul happens to us, Just as they
do over there, don't you?
I SUPPOSE uu're selling Liberty Bonds,
I know very few people who aren't.
And does everybody you approach say,
"Well, I'm sorry, but my sister Is telling
them and I have to give her all the bonds
I buy"? It is rather annoying when you're
-working yom head off to sell them to have
everybody asking you to buy them of them,
If you get my somewhat obscured mean
ing. Isn't It.? I heard of one seller who
Iiad spent one entire day which she was
taking as a day off to rest up for further
campaigns,- In telling people that she was
giving all hera to her little daughter.
Finally, late in the afternoon, the oell
rang, and being right bcsldo the door, sho
opened It, knowing full well what was out
tilde. A small boy In Scout khaki stood on the
threshold, "I'm selling Liberty Bonds. Do
you want to buy some?" he abked. She
went through the Bame story, "I'M sorry,
etc". He had such a nice, clear, boy volco
that she really had to be pleasant to him.
"Don't you want Just, n fifty dollar bond,"
he persisted, "Fifty cents a week", the
attractive voice failed to save him. "I'm
selling Liberty Bonds," she announced,
"Don't you want to buy one?" The stunt
worked, and tho young salesman took his
nice voice away with an apologetic grin.
Why don't you try It the next time you
liave to say the same old thing?

CHAPTER XVI (Continued)

was still In doubt as to her sanity, finally,
MlrnSda put the point-blank nuestlon-
"Why must we go with her7
"Simply because we have no one else to go
with, no other plan." was Una's prompt
"There was no gainsaying this. They were
wandering, without guld or duo of any
kind through a,cat niled with mysteries
and dangers On the trull behind them were
? hands of natives, absorbed In the occu
pation of cutting each other's throats From
one of these bands It was certain they had
much to fear. In front of them was a con
sderabh. body of cavemen, not at present

"I take you from these." said Narva, point
ing In the dlrectloh of the village,"-
T.'hy should we go from them?" asked
I.elghton. ,
Thev kill you," was the laconlo reply.
"What bloodthirsty people they all are!"
I'sarkTCm statement of what was
to be nected proved decisive. There re;
malned the doubt as to her sincerity.
The timorous Mrs. Quayle fcented a dia
bolical plot In the whole affair, and her; fears
were shared by some of the others. Only
t'na would brook no delay.-
J want to get out of the cave," she
said addressing Narva. -We have lost tho
av you will guide us?' ,.,,.,
"Something you do first," retorted .Narva;
''tThe0uJgge0stlon'that they were still. In. a'
sense, prisoners, and that some kind of aery

realn their freedom, was not pleasant.

Th answer to everything was always" "fol

others breathless and panlc-strlcken. They
wanted to turn back before they had gone
very'far but this would have been quite as
difficult to accomplish as to go on.
t this point, apparently, the geological
-nnstructtort of the cave had undergone some
radical changes. Convulsions, undoubtedly
f volcanic origin, had tent the solid walls of
Uranlte. In two, leaving Irregular chasms, of
uncertain depth, to be traversed before the
mooth floor of the valley could be reacheo,
These chasms, where their width, demanded
it were spanned by swaying bridges of rope
or liana and wood that proved a sore
trial to tho weaker members of .the party,
delaying their progress to an extent that ser
iously strained Narva's patience. The old
Indian wns especially put out by Mrs. Quayle,
whom she contemptuously called 'baby," and

nearest approach to laughter she had shown.
Under Narva's guidance, howeer, the dif
ficulties 0f (i,4 dnwnw'Hrd trail were over-coin-
without mishap. The-perilous ubssrs,
once crossed, appeared not more than mlnla
ttiro dangers In retrospect : but Immediately
facing thun. on this plain that, at a dis
tance, had seemed so charming anil pastoral
In character, there was menare enough for
tho most daring. At first sight of the In
vaders, for so they were deemed, the villagers
showed unmistakable hostility. Dropping
their various occupations with one accord,
they confronted the explorers In so threaten
ing a manner that the latter had either to
defend themsehea as best they might or
retreat, nut the thought of those lllalnous
chasms, spanned by flimsy- bridges of rope,
was too appalling to offer the-remoteft hope
of safety In flight. Anything would be better
than a return If return were een possible
over so harardous a path.
"We fight," announced Miranda through
clenched teeth and, regretting his lost re
volver, he threw himself Into as warlike an
attitude as his rotund figure would permit
TIiIr had anything but a quieting effect on
tho villagers. From every direction olun
teers hastened to strengthen their line of bat
tle, and It might have fared badly with the
enterprising doctor, upon whom a concen
trated attack resembling a football rush was
about to be launched, had It not been for the
Interference of Narva. The old Indian woman,
scornful.nt first of the excited demonstration
of the villagers, now took an active part In
v.hat was going on. Brushing Miranda aside,
she checked the advancing mob with a torrent
of angry words that sounded like the scald
Ing lecture of an outraged school teacher
bringing her refractory pupils to order. As
Mie spoke In the native language of the In
dlans, what she said was totally unintelligible
to those, whom she was defending. Hut on
the cavemen the effect of her words was Im
mediate. The shouts ceased: the hastily
formed lino of battle was broken. The angry
villagers acknowledged Narva's authority bv
every sign of submission sullenly given. It Is
true and the way was clear and free for the
"lnaders" to go on.
The singular episode Impressed them deep
ly. They realized that they were surrounded
by people who did not want them In this
underworld of theirs, and that they were, at
the same time, under the protection of a being
who, mad or Inspired, was powerful enough
to stand between them and danger. Who she
was of why she befriended them remained a
mystery. On this point Narva was aa un
communicative as eter. On occasion, as they
had Just witnessed, she was capable of the
volubility of a (Hhwlfe; with them her je
servo was impregnable.
"Follow me!" she commanded and there
was nothing for It but obey. Miranda, who
was tho Immediate cause of the trouble, mut
tered maledictions on the fate that left him
at the mercy of an eccentric beldame whu
might be leading them to some unthinkable
witch's dance and the rest exhorted him to
curb his warlike propensities In the future.
Gliding ahead at a quicker pace than be
fore, Narva led the way along the narrow
path, on each side of which stood the huts of
the villagers. These huts were not more tlinn
, thirty In number, built of the rough-hewn
stone of the cave, Kach apparently contained
two or In some cases three rooms on the
ground floor. Itoofs they had none, a de
ficiency In orchltictuure evidently without in
convenience, since the great vaulted domes of
the cave furnished them with whatever pro.
tectlon overhead was necessary. The whole
series of little houses composing the village
resembled one huge, hospltahle communal
dwelling, not unlike the ancient pueblo ruins
ot Arizona, In which there was the. privacy
desired by 'separate families, together with a
close linlon of household Interests that Is
scarcely posblble In settlements' where each
group 'of Individuals lives under Its own roof
tiee. As If further to preserve thts-communal
, manner' of living, the, openings Into the 'huts
were without doors, although. In a few In
stances, curtains of a heavy red. material
served as doors, These curtains were-adorned
with thin plates of gold, cut In primitive de
signs .depleting various forms of nnlhial life.
The huts so marked the cxplorem took to be
the dwellings either of .village dignitaries or
buildings devoted to public uses.

past, present and future! Have Tlr7ah

Tlrrah. ipieen of the Gjpslcs, reveal to you

Peggy listened In fascinated Interest tn
this chant repeated over nnd over again by
the tall, fierce-looking gypsy who stood be
fore the entrance to the G.vpsy village nt tho
Comity Fair It was very alluring. No
wonder so many giggling girls and sheepish-fau-d
.voting men were tempted among the
gay-colored tents and gaudy vans tn have
their palms read by the dark-eyed gypsy glrhi
and women.
Peggv didn't believe In fortune-telling And.
ns she watched the Gypsies reap their harvest
of coins from the fun-secklng crowd, ,-he be.
came more and more convinced that they
were just clever fakers. Still, there was
something enticingly mvstlc about their camp
nnd about the Gypsies themselves She would
llko to stud) their strange life at close range
and Investigate their claimed power of look
ing into the hidden things of the future.
But Peggy, resting In her uncle's unto
mobile wlillo the others In her party looked
at the machinery dlsplaj, did not dare venture,
across the road Into the realm of the riilra
She didn't Know whether they would "really
steal children ,sm she had heard that some
Gjpsles did but she wasn't going lo tnkc
any chances.
There were children In the camp, lots of
them, ranging all the way from tiny toddlers
to half grown hoys nnd girls. Some wero
playing and some were working at light camp
tasks. Peggy wondered If thero were any of
the stolen children among them. They nil
looked gay and happy. Thero was no sign
of the sadness she would expect to find In
little ones taken from their mothers. Be
sides, they were all Just as brown and wild
looking as. the older gjpsles.
One little todder In particular lattracted
Peggy's attention. He was a roly-poly
Gypsy baby as fancifully dressed ns a young
prince Ho was playing about the special
tent of Tlrzah, the eiueen, nnd every few
minutes ho would try to run awav, chuckling
.'oudly as he scampered from the watchful
older children. But they never let him get
out of their sight or beyond the bounds of the
Suddenly there came a shouting from down
the road. Peggy, from her seat In the auto,
saw a cloud of dust rising And beneath the
cloud she made out horses coming on a gal
lop. They were mustangs from a wild west
show at the fair, and apparently they had
escaped from tho cowboys In charge. Warned
by the shouting, people scattered right and
Peggy felt a thrill of alarm, but she knew
she was safer In the auto than If she tried
to run away. So she sat still and waited for
the horses to sweep past.
When they were only a few yards away,
she heard a terrified scieain from the Gypsy
camp Glancing In that direction, sho was
horrified to see tho Gypsy baby toddling
across the road. He was right In the path
of the mustangs nnd would be crushed be
neath their hoofs. No one was near to save
Peggy never waited to think. She Jumped
fiom the auto, rushed out Into the road,
picked up the toddler, and ran on Into tho
Gypsy camp. Just as the horses thundered
In a moment Peggy was surrounded by a
crowd of excited Gvpsles big and little.
Tearing a way through them came a woman,
flashing-eyed, handsome, tigerish. It was
Tlrzah, the queen.
"Toto. my baby! Is he killed?" sho
screamed, snatching the toddler from Peggy's
"lie is safe, Tlrzah This brave girl rescued
him from beneath the horses' feet" The
speaker was the tall, fierce-looking Gypsy
who had stood at the entrance to the camp.
Tlrzah turned toward Peggy. Her eyes,
which had (lashed in anxious fear, suddenly
"Tlrzah thanks you, Princess Peggy," she
said. "You shall come under the Gypsy's
charm as your reward, and taste delights not
given to ordinary mortals"
