BAKER ft 8ON8 GO. 31 Wayne 8t^ Kendallville, Ind. physician asked me some questions, and I an swered them to the best of my ability. He did not smile at my fright; only shook his head and gave me something which made me sleep again. And so for a week I lay there, helpless, half asleep, and half awake. But one day I awoke to clear consciousness, com paratively free of the torture of the broken ankle, and myself again. Then the physician and I discussed the matter at length. " He listened respectfully as 1 repeated it all, and at the end shook his head "'There is no intersecting road between the small store of which you speak and the outskirts of Millen,' he said positively. " 'But, man, I was there!' I protested. 'I turned into the other road, and ran along till I saw the house in the open field. 1 tell you?' " But he let me go no further. I knew why. He thought it was some mental vagary; for after awhile he gave me a pill and went away. So 1 resolved to solve the matter for myself. I would go back along that road by day, and find that silent old man, and, if not the house itself, the charred spot where it had stood. 1 would know that intersection; I would know even the path which led lrom the mysterious road off into the wood. When I found these 1 knew the maze would fade into some simple, plain explanation?perhaps even an absurd one. "So I bided my time. In the course of an other week I was able to leave my cot and hobble about with the aid of crutches. It was then that 1 took the physician in my car. and we went back along the highway toward I'el ham. It was all unfamiliar ground to me; there was no road, and suddenly there ahead of me was the little store where I had bought the gasolene that night. I would question the old man I had seen there; but there was no old man. The little store was unoccupied; it seemed to have been unoccupied for weeks. " I turned back and traversed the road toward Millen again. I recognized nothing; I couldn't find a trace of a bypath from the highway in any direction. And once more I went over the ground at night. Nothing! After that the physician, a singularly patient man, accompanied me as I hobbled through the forest on each side of the road seeking that house, or its ashes. I never saw anything to lead me, to even suggest, a single incident of that awful night. " ' I know the country, every inch of it.' the physician told me. ' There isn't any such place as you mention.' And?well, that's all. I know his opinion was that my story was some sort of delusion?a dream. But how he accounts for the broken ankle I don't know. Then the condition of my clothing1 I had been compelled to discard everything 1 wore for garments sent down from the city. And so in time I came to be lieve the experience a dream. I was growing content with this story, even knowing it to be wrong, because it brought mental rest, and was beginning to be myself again. " Then one day I had occasion to search the coat I had worn that night for some papers which had been misplaced. In the course of the search I thrust my hand into an outside pocket, and drew out?a little ivory god, sit ting on his haunches, grinning hideously! " Now I am like this?and the little god sits up laughing at me. He knows!" When he had finished reading, The Thinking Machine dropped back into the chair, with squint eyes turned steadily upward, and long slender fingers pressed tip to tip. Hutchinson Hatch, reporter, sat staring in silence at the drawn, inscrutable face of the scientist. "And the writer of this?" demanded The Thinking Machine at last. " His name is Harold Fairbanks," the re porter explained. " He was removed to an asylum yesterday, hopelessly insane." The explanation of this mystery will appear in next Sunday's magazine. The Smallest Screws 'THE smallest screws in the world are those made in watch factories. They are cut from steel wire by a machine; but as the chips fall from the knife it looks as if the operator was simply cutting up the wire for his own diversion. One thing is certain, no screws can be seen, and yet a screw is made by every third operation The fourth jewel wheel screw is next to in visible, to the naked eye resembling a speck of dust. With a glass, however, it can be made out quite distinctly. It has two hundred and sixty threads to an inch. These little screws are four one-thousandths of an inch in diam eter, and the heads are double in size. It has been estimated that an ordinary thimble would hold one hundred thousand of them. About one million of them are manufactured in the course of a month; but no attempt is ever made to count them. In determining the number, one hundred of them are placed on a very delicate balance, and the number of the whole quantity calculated from the weight of these. All the small parts of the watch are counted in this way, probably fifty out of the hundred and twenty. When they have been cut, the screws are hardened and put into frames, about one hun dred to the frame, heads up. This is done very rapidly, but entirely by the sense of touch in stead of by sight, so that a blind man with a little experience could perform the task. The next step in the process is to polish the heads in an automatic machine, ten thousand at a time. The plate on which this is done is covered with oil and a grinding compound, and on this the machine moves them very rapidly, by a reversing motion, until they are in perfect condition. You are All Confused about Pianos! ?You want the iweeteit toned ?You want that sweet tone to laat ?You dislike to spend any more money than necessary:?But every adviser, and so-called expert, recommends a different make.
