Oct. 24?The police of Norfolk have a mystery to solve in tho doath of Alston IL Berry of Home, Oa? whose hotly wan found locked In a room nt the Fairfax hotel, Tuesday afternoon. With the entire detective force working oh the ease, the second day after Hie finding of the body passed without a ray of light pen. otrntlllg the darkness of the case. Coroner Knight and a jury viewed the body today, but adjourned to meet again at some future time, without ar? riving at a verdict. Clad In underclothing only, the body was found in bed, the throat cut from ear to ear, and the skull fractured at its base. Tbe room was somewhat disordered. There was- uu weapon to bo Boon with which the wounds may have been Inflicted on Hie dead man. On the victim's trunk in the room i was found the room key. The trunk was tilled .with tine raiment.

The murderer left no track behind ami wlldncO he came and whither he went nre eipuilly mysterious. There was no window or other exit than the door through which he might leave. It Is regarded as improbable that Ber? ry was murdered In Ills bed. and there, fore the body must have been placed liiere carefully by the murderer. The lock on Hie door of Iho room would not be opened by the hotel pass key. ft- some unexplained reason, and It was necessary for the hotel car? penter to pick the lock. 1 terry Is alleged lo have been a gam? bler, and several decks of marked cards ami loaded dice in his trunk soconi to boar <>ut tho allegation.

WARWICK PRINTINC CO. INC., 211 25th St. Reil Phon 123.' 10-20 tf o The Town Clock. [Original.] A group of citizens Btood In tho innr Uel place of Bohra in l)o rg, In iho Itinck forest, looking up al the clock lu the church tower. "It has stopped," .'aid one. "No, but the hands more nt n snail's pace," said another. "I have been standing here fully ten minutes," said a third, "and can't de? tect the slightest ehnnge." "And I have watched It for an hour," said a fourth. "The long hand shows a gain of two and a half, minutes." "When was the change noticed?" "At \2 o'clock midnight It has not struck the hour since." "Let me sec two nnd a half minutes to the hour. At that rate the minute band would sweep the dial In twenty four hours. The dock registers but an hour a day." I Krom a little shop near by old Itoth 1 hoi/., the watchmaker, glanced out of his window at the group, shook bis : head al them, then tinned nnd resumed ' his work. Tile day before his son had come to him, wringing his hands. ! "Oh. father," he exclaimed, "Clcily I has been condemned! Old Mother 1 (Jault swore that she had seen her with her own eyes vomiting crooked pins." "What! That Innocent girl con? demned for witchcraft on tho testi? mony of that hag'/" I "Yes. and she is to lie burned nt the stake In three day-:. Obi father, help! Wo are betrothed!" I The youngster, still In ills teens, had not censed to rely on his father for everything. The old man scratched ids head and gave himself up to deep thought. Presently he said,' "I cannot prevent this tragedy, but "l tuny delay It." I "HowV" nsked the boy cagcVly. j "You know, my son, that the clock In the church tower, which 1 made . and about which uo one except my ' self known anything, !?? the legal time In the village- that 1, the town clerk ns well as watchmaker, keep the legal calendar and keep it by the clock. If J 1 stop the clock I stop the village lime, but in that case they would adopt an? other standard. 1 ?III make the hands go very slowly. This will delay the j execution, and something may happen , to save the girl." j In the middle of the night the old man went up Into the tower ami chang ' ed the clock's rule to one hour In twen 1 ty-four, Clcily could not be legally burned for more than two months. '?' The group standing lu tin* market I place after further discussion moved . together to old Itothholr.'s shop, told ; him that the clock Iliad nearly stopped i ami he must tlx It. "Don't bother your ! heads nbou; the clock." he said; "it ? will go well enough In time." "When?" "After the girl who was condemned [ yesterday has been burned." "What has that to do with It?" "I don't ^ know. I only know that the clock, I which has kept perfect time ever since I it was set up In the tower, has slid . denly gone wrong." "Nonsense!" ex t Claimed most of the party, and they ' went away. The old uiitn insisted that he could I not tlx (he clock, though, to satisfy the I authorities, he pretended to try. In a few days the burghers, fludlug a new ? subject of Interest, censed to talk "| about the clock. A week later Autolne ? Flecker presented a note that was duo to Karl Becker for payment. Becker ; declared that he would pay It when the town clock should say the time 'j for payment had expired. Heeker J went to Rolhbols ant! asketl for a cer i tlflcato to that effect. Heeker declared i that by the village time the note wns ; not due. The result wns a quarrel be -,tween the debtor and the creditor. Then came a widow who wished to 1 marry again. By the terms of her late s husband's will she would lose every ' thing he had left her If she married ' I before a certain tlate. The date hail expired, but the legal town time said ! that it had not. The clerk said it was j his duty to keep tho calendar by the . clock. He could do nothing. The . Judge ordered him before the court r mill to tlx the clock or keep the calen . der by another timepiece. The town I clerk refused to break the law, and I the Judge had no power to compel him ?' to do so. I As the days and weeks elapsed the ''(condition of the people of the village n became more Irritating. They quar 1 reled about the time to go to bed, to ' get up, fur meals. The children would not go to school till the clock struck the hour. Nobody would go to church liecnuse there was no knowing when t j they should go. Those who had watches tyrranlted over those who had not and quarreled among, themselves ns to whose watch was right. At last .the hubbub was so great that It be cunie Intolerable. A committee wall? ed on the town clerk and begged him to tlx the clock or break tho law, prom? ising him Immunity. "Not I." lie said. "I believe that heaven shows Its displeasure through the clock for the condemnation of a pure young ghi for witchcraft." When this was repented to the Jttdgo he called the court together and re? opened the trial of tho condemned Clcily. Antolno Heeker, who was anx? ious to get his money from his cred? itor, having heard that tho clock would not go properly till Clcily was aequit || ted, swore thnl tho night before he had ' seen tor accuser sailing by moonlight en the river lu a sieve. All the dis? satisfied people la the village support? ed his testimony. Clcily wns acquit? ted, nnd tfie old woman was condemn V'ed to be burned in hor stead. J That night at midnight the old oh* k ?M Struck the hour and thenceforth re j corded the time correctly. 1 C UAH LOTTE BOND UU.U Harlet Llvermore.
