Norton Doivns in an Air Fight in France Charity Ball Pageant Planned. FA. Milsom to Talk in Chestnut Hill w, rElll! you not soiry to hoar of Norton Downs's death In France? Ho was In the avlntlon vorps, and had done such splendid work In Italy thnt ho whs sent to Knglnnd for n more complete course. When he returned to France ho wns put nt tho head of n. squadron. Only a few weeks ago he, was transferred to night work, and It Was during tho night that lie met with lita death In an air battle. Norton married Alice Thompson In April of last year. He enlisted In the nvlatlofl and studied tlist nt Cornell. Alice Thomp son Downs has been living nt home with her father and mother. Mr.nml Mrs. Henry Chapman Thompson, at Merlon. She has ono child, and I am so glad, because It will ho such a comfort to her. Norton's mother was Miss Phoebe McKean, 11 daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs, Thomas McKean, and n sister of Mrs. Benjamin Allen, Mr. Tom McKean and Mr. Henry l'rntt Mc Kean. Mrs. Downs's other sdn, McKean, Is In Trance also. He went over with the Han cock troops and has been tlolhg splendid work." He married Amie Merrick within a few dujs of Norton's marriage. There Is another brother, Warren McKean Downs, who Is also In France. And three sisters Mrs. Rowland Evuns, Jr. (Bessie), l'lioebe Downs and Sarah Downs. Bes Is taking a nurse's course at the Pennsyl vania Hospital. .Mrs. Downs, Sr is visiting her sister, Mrs. Benjamin Allen, out in Colorado Springs. IT'S nice to hear that Kleanor Carpenter "Wright Is perfectly well again. Sho and Blllie have taken n house In Chestnut Hill since he has been stationed heie In Philadelphia. The elder Wrights. Mr. and Mis. William Townsend Wijght, have gone on n gunning trip to the Bloomlngdale nunnlng and Pishing Cub at Glen Eyre, in Pike Count. And Mr. Wright wiote home that he had actually picked stiaw beriles out of doors up there. What do loti know about that In Nu ember? Some climate that, and right In l't;ntislvanlu! IHKAJtD estcrday Unit the pageant which will precede the Charity Hall Is going to be quite wonderful. The benefi ciaries are to ls leptcsenteil by various groups of darners under the chnperonage of u number of prominent women The t'nlvcrslty Hospital will be lepresented by Mrs. Cap Hacker and Mrs. Morris Clothier, the Jefferson Hospital by Mrs. It. EmoH Hnre anil the Ladien' AitMli.it of the Chil dren's Hospital will be under the patron age of Mrs. Benjamin Bush, Mrs. Ned llsley and Mis. John Drayton, who was Charlotte Hush, ion know, a daughter of Mi, and Mrs. Ben Bush Then the fourth beneficiary will be the Society to ITotect Children from Cruelly, and this will lie chaperoned by Mrs. John C. Oroome, Mrs. Norman MacLeod and Mlis Edith Bent. ICach chapeione asks a number of gills and younger boys to dance, and the whole of them will take part In 11 splendiferous and beautiful pageant and iVuice. . The halt is going to be a veiy big affair this year, ou know, for It Is the only thing . of the kind planned by Society so far and piobably will be tho only one In the season, for even If peace comes, as It surely will, there will b- so much to do for the wounded and the people of Europe theie'll be little tlmo for big entertainments. IS'N'T It disappointing about Lieutenant MINom, of tile Canadian Forces? You know he waJ scheduled to speak out at St. Paul's tomorrow, but etenluv when he was In New York, he received orders to report In Uostuii. so the whole thing here Is off until later In the season, when he may be able to come back. I hope he will, for he Is ery Interesting and has seen so much or the war himself. That's It, you know. ou con talk a lot and listen a lot to theories, but when you hear a man who has been right on the battlefield, in the trenchesand gassed and wounded, who has ben face to face with the "Bodies" or 'Bosch Germans," as the darky soldiers call them. iu,kiiiivv oii'ie a,bout to hear something. ONE of paid f our men In the sen ice was well for breaking the rules recently. You "know any ono in the service must wear his unlfiiini even when on leave these wartimes. Well, one you Know and I know, decided not to, and It vis on regis tration. day. He was standing at a corner lighting a cigarette when a small newsboy approached and looking at him In contempt lemarkrd, "I'll bet you ain't got no regis tration card." The truth of the uccusatlon brought u guilty Hush to the officer's face. "I thought o," said the-triumphant newsy. "No, you don't get no paper from me; I don't sell none to slackers." It was a good lesson. I can toll you! Our hero went home by nil the back streets and got Into his uniform so quick you could scarcely rount a minute from his entrance Into the house and his reappearance In all his bars nnd stripes.

Rhe holds him vp tetth il ;ilitnJ CHAPTEB VI Tin Home in lir Cm e THE ("lennan guard, facing Peggj's pistol, put up his hnnds nbove his head. Now that Peggy had captured him, sho didn't know what to do with him Supposing Ollicer Casev shouldn't come back. Supposing ho had been overcome by the other guard. It wasn't pleasant to think about. This chap might spring nt her any minute. And then what would she do" flood girl'" whispered a voice behind her. ICiep hint that way a minute and I'll fix him." Piggy wns conifoited She knew Officer Casey was near. But why was be hiding? Why didn't he come boldly up and take the Herman prisoner? Sho waited and wailed, but Ollicer Casey did nothing Her arm giew tired, and ihe pistol wavered a bit. She saw the German's eyes light ftp as be noticed this and the atiadled her baud Suddenly theie came a thud from neaiby In tlm forest the sound of some one crashing to the ground n slmrp groan a brief strug gle then silence. The Cennan stiffened His eyes gleamed. Evldentl) be thought aid was at hand. For Jus a moment Pegg.v's eyes strayed In that direction. In that moment the Oerman leaped toward her Sho pulled the trigger of tho pistol ' There followed only a harmless click. The fleininn gave a cry of triumph. But he rejoiced too soon. Whnng! A club enme down on Ids head and he sprawled at Peggy's feet. The club wns In the hnnds of Ollicer Casey, who quickly had the fellow tied up. 'That finishes the last of the guard"," said tho policeman. "You were a brave girl to hold this chap so long with an unloaded p'stol. It gave me n chance to get his com panion. Now for the cave in the rocks." They quickly climbed to the top of the hill. There they found two tall trees thnt served as wireless towers While they were looking for the rest of the equipment, Bluo Jay gave a or) of warning. A man was coming up through a gully. Peggy and Ottlcer Casry quickly hid themselves. The man went straight to one of the tall tiees. U- pulled it rope nnd there appeared from the hushes one end of the wireles "neilals." Then he went to the other treo nnd pulled up the other end. The plant was ready for business As th man hurried back down the gully. Officer Casey nnd Peggy followed They saw him wo up to a rocky wall, push on a big Flab of stone and disappear from view. 'That's tha cave tho Jajs told me about," said Blue Jay From behind the wall or rock presently came a faint Interrupted buzzing "He s sending a wlreles message. We'll stop that'" Saying this Officer Casey ran back up the hill. He lowered the "aerials" and smashed the outllt. Then, with Peggy, he hid In tho path leading from the gully. l"p this path the operator soon came run ning to see what was wrong. Officer Casey met him with a pistol a loaded one this time, nnd in a trice the man was a prisoner. "Now. we'll take a look at the cave," said Ollicer Casey. "Good," muttered Officer Casey. ".Vow nmbe we'll find who Is supplying the wlre Icjss messages." Coughing and pretending that Ids voice was hoarse, he answered the phone Ills eyes grew laiger and larger ns he wrote down the message that came. When It was finished he hung up the receiver. "I recognized the volco at the other end." he whispered exultlngly. "It's Strunk. man ager of the. telephone company. He told of n convoy of transports about to sail. We'll hustle hack to town and nab the whole gang. We've done a big service for Uncle Sam this day. and I'll surely be promoted to the de tective force." "Didn't I tell you I was n detective," shrieked Blue Jay "What would you have done If It hadn't been for me?" "You're right. Blue Jay," cried Peggy. "It It hadn't been for your thinking Officer Casev a criminal we'd never have found this nest of wireless spies." And that ends the story, for on the way back to town In the auto Pegg fell asleep and never knew another thing until she awoke at home. (IH the ntrl story, lUgpy ifsfi, ( Jaml of the Snow Brrs.

As quietly as I could I made a complete, thorough, rapid examination or the area. It was a dank dark place, only lit where the yellow light streamed forth from the scul leiy It had u couplo of low bas hollowed out ot the masonry under the little court vard. tin one filled with wood blocks, tho other with broken packing cases, old bottles and like rubbish. I explored these until no hands mine in contact with the damp brh ks at the buck, hut In vain Door and window remained ibn otil.v means of escape Four tall tin refuse bins stood In line In fi-nt of these two bas, n fifth wns stowed away under the Iron stair They were all marl full of refuse, so were uveltss as hiding-places In anv cae It accorded neither with the part I was pi i) lug nor with mi sense of the ludicrous to tie discovered bv the hotel domestics biding In a refuse bin I was at my wits' end to know what to do I had dareii so much, ull had gone so si.rprlslnglv well that It was heartbreaking to be foiled with liberty almost within my giasp A guat wave of disappointment swept over mo until I felt my very heart sicken Then I heard footsteps and hope le vlved within me. I shrunk baik Into the daikness of the nrea behind the refuse bins standing in front, of the bay nearest the door. Within the house footsteps were appioach lug the scullery I hmtd a door open, then n man's voice singing He was warbling In a tine mellow baritone that popular German ballad "Has baben die Madchen so gerne Dlo hn Stubchen und die tin Salong" The voice hung lovingly and wavered and trilled on thnt word "Salong"- the effect was so much to the slngei's liking that he snng the stave over again A bumping and a rattle ns of loose object In an empty hoi formed the accompaniment to hi song. "A iheery fellow'" I ald to myself. If only I could see who It was: Hut I dare not move Into thnt patch of yellow light from which tho only view Into the scullery wns iifTotded The singing slopped Again I heard a door open. Was ho going awa? Then I saw a thin shaft of light uudei the atea dour The next moment It was flung back and the waiter, Knil. appeared, .still in his blue apron, a bucket in either bund. He wan comlngto the infuse bins Pndd'nhead Wilson's advice came Into m mind: "When angi'v count up to fom when very angry, swtar." I(was not angry but scaled, terilbly scared, scared so Hint I could hear my heart pulsating in great thuds In my cars. .Nevertheless, I followed the advice of the sage of Dawson's Lauding and counted to myself; one. two, three, four,' one, two, three, foui ; while my heart hamnieied out' Kicp-coo, keep-cool, keip-i-ooll And all the time 1 rcmii'nrd crouching behind the first two rcfue bins marcst the door. , The waller hummed to himself the melody of his little ditty In a deep bourdon as he paused a moment at the floor Then he ad vanced slowly across the area Would he stop at the lefUfe bins behind which I cowered? No, he passed them. The tlilid" The fourth? No! He walked straight across the area and went to the bin beneath the Ptalrs. I mutteicd a bUs.Wng inwaidly on the care ful habits of the (lei man who organizes even his refuse Into separate tubs. The man had his back to the door N'ow or never was in chance. I ctnwled round my friendly garbage bins, reached the aiea door on tiptoe and stepped softlv Into the house As 1 did so I heard tho clank of tin as Karl replaced the lid of the tub. , A dark passage stretchid out In fi out of me lmnud'ately to my right was the scul lery door wide open I must avoid the seni le! y at all cjsts The man nilgnt remain there and I tould not risk him dilving me before lilin li.uk to the entrance hall of the betel. 1 ciepi down the ilatk passage with hands outstretched. I'resentl the fell upon the latch of a dooi. I pressed It ; the door opened Inwards Into the darkness and I parsed through A" I softl.v closed the door behind me I heard Kail's litav.v sttp and the grind ing of the ke as he locked Hie area door I stood In a kind of cupboard In pilch darkness, hard! daring to bieathe. Once mote I heard llio man singing his Idiotic song. I did not date look out from my hiding place for his voice sounded ro near that 1 faied he might be still in the passage So I stood and waited. I must have staled there for mi hour In the dalk.
