The Golden Mietat
MAGNIFICENT wedding gift,"
fluttered Miss Rocket as her
wrinkled white hands grasped tho quaint
steel casket and bore it to her own
chlntz-ihung sitting room.
Tho English solicitor for theB6oth
bys, of Scarrowc, looked very scornful
as ho went down tho stono steps of
tho stately mansion where Agatha
Rocket Ilvod with her orphan niece,
Sylvia. He knew the Rockets were very
rich so many Americans were rich
and that Andrew IJoothby'a marriage
to Sylvia was purely n love-match and
that the young pcoplo were to go to
Canada and begin their married life
on Andrew's ranch there. Ho knew
all thoso things, and he guessed that
Miss Agatha Rocket was a tuft hunter,
and he marveled how sho had ever
wheedled Andrew's sole remaining rcla-
tlve, Sir Angus Boolhby, of Scarrowc,
Into parting with tho family heirloom,
the Golden Missal, It was n wedding
gl.'t to Andrew, and his bride, but if
tlioy had waited It Would have 'come to
them anyway. But Agatha had wanted
It to flaunt in the faces of her hundred
dear friends.; It was so , old, so mys
tcriouB, so precious I
Alono In her siting room Agathn
thought of the triumph before her all

sho could display the Golden Missal
among Sylvia's wedding gifts. It was
such n wonderful thing it was con
cerned with English history an old
abbot had written dark secrets on Ivory
tablets and Inserted tho sheets In the
pages of the ancient mass book. It
had then been bound In thin leaves of
gold and sealed with n great seal, and
no ono knew tho contents.' savo tho old
abbot, who bad been dead for cen
turies. Agathn Rocket fairly quaked as sho
turned the rusted little key in the lock
and lifted out tho packago wrapped In
gold brocade that a king had worn ; the
precious relic of n patrician race was
In her hands and she looked guiltily
around as If sho expected Sir Angus to
snatch it from her nllen hands. It was
a smnll flat book, bound between covers
of thin, beaten gold. The golden clasp
was scaled within splotch of red wax,
snd Agatha blushed as sho visuallxcd
Sir Angus grim satisfaction as ho
finally sealed It against her inquisitive
eyes. Tho sedrets guarded, there would
still bo secretn hugged closo to th
hcartH of the Boothbys, even the rich
aunt of Andrew's bride dared not touch.
Dared not? , ..-..,
Her hands shook as she hurriedly
wrapped tho book and thrust it into
the casket, locking it securely. Tempta
tion was very ncaV the proud woman,
who had always reached out and grasped

Love eluded her, savo that of Bylvln

her thrilled her. ......
Thim the steel casket containing tho
Ooldon Missal confronted her. There v.
was n tasto of tho bitterness of failure;
In the sight of it. How sho una plan
niwi nhmit It ! " the ncwsnnticrs would
write . articles about it: the pictorial
sunnlcments would feature it; her own
nirtitt-A would be there, and Svlvla'
nrobably Andrew's, if that conservative
young BritOn would consent, which was
,lniihfii1. Aeathn wished she could
detest publlcltyas Sylvia and Andrew
did I uut sno lovca it.
"Here's , auntie,!' fluted Sylvia's
voice, and she came, bringing Andrew.
He was a tall, lean, brown young man,
very much In love. He bent over and
kissed Mis Rocket's cheek.
"Jove!" he exclaimed. "If you
haven't got tho family skeleton!"
"lour uncle sent' it to you nnd Syl
seal unbroken rather decent of my
uncle to Intrust it to usl"
"I wish we could send It back the
via." she explained lamely. "It's tile
Golden Mlr.sal of course you know nil
shout it.''
Andrew shook his head. "Heard
nbout It often, saw it onrc, but never
could get interested can't, you know,
in something that isn't to bo opened or
read," ho said practically.
Agatha gasped. "Not to be opened?
Didn't your undo your -people "
He laughed carelessly. "Never
heard of any ono bothering with It. Thd
old nbboi wrote If find then forbade any
one to read what ho hod written
matter of family honor to leave the
proper place for it Is In the vault at
the Towers, not In our farmhouse,'
said Sylvia.
"Right," agreed Andy. t "Come,
darling, perhaps thoso detectives will
let us look at the wedding gifts."

Heat is the thing that runs your motor. Heat is the
expansive force which drives your pistons, turns your
wheels, moves your car or truck.
The greater the number of calorific or heat-producing
units a gasoline has, the greater its potential power. But
potential power is not actual power.
Unless every particle of fuel burns, instantly unless
all the heat units are developed and utilized in one con
centrated effort power is wasted.
This year's Atlantic Gasoline is not only higher in
calorific power, but it is so accurately balanced with the
volatile elements needed for rapid vaporization, quick
ignition and complete combustion that it delivers power
to the utmost
And this high Atlantic quality never varies. Every
tankful you buy is just like the last.
Make a long-period test and note its uniform, depend
able performance. Also note the disappearance of fuel
knocks, the diminishing of carbon, the increase in mileage.
Consider, too, that with Atlantic there's seldom any
emergency need to "switch," for

road you are traveling"
