THE VILLAIN MAC BEARD, POSSESSED OF THE DEAD MAS
TERMAN'S SECRET, GOES
THE WEIRD. THINGS NEAR SHETLAND
ISLANDS HAS DEADLY PURPOSE. "
Naval Lieutenant Donald Paget, Just given command of a sub
marine, meets at Washington an old friend and distinguished though
somewhat eccentric scientist. Captain Masterman. Masterman has just
returned fjom an exploring expedition, bringing with him a member of
the strange race, the existence of whose species, he asserts, menaces
the human family. At the club, the "March Hares," Masterman ex
plains his theory to Paget. The recital is interrupted by the arrival
of a lifelong enemy of Masterman, Ira MacBeard, and the former is
seized with a fatal paralytic stroke. From Masterman's body Paget
secures documents bearing upon the discovery and proceeds to the
home of the scientist. Paget proceeds to sea on his submarine, the
F5T, and encounters a German cruiser. He sinks the enemy, which had
destroyed the Iieotia. on which Ida Kennedy, his fiancee, was a pas
senger. The girl escapes in a small boat. lie rescues her, but finds
himself unableto take the skiff to the submarine because of mvisible
forces. Paget, Ida. Midsiiittiuan lavies and Seaman Sam Clouts barely
escape death. Clouts plays the mouthorgan.
CHAPTER VI Continued.
Donald heard him leap Into the tor
pedo room below. A moment later his
voice came up the, funnel. "I'm f eady
for the lady, sir !'r he called.
Donald raised Ida in his arms and
lowered her through the tube.
"After you, sir," said Davies.
, "I have assumed command, Davies,"
. Donald replied.
"Very well, sir," said the middy qui
etly, .and descended. Donald followed
lilm., .As he jumped for the floor of
I he torpedo room, he heard the scrap
ing sound of flippers on the floor above.
Cut the creaking of the conning tower
door had ceased.
"We're saved!" cried Donald. "Da
vies, they can't force the conning
tower. Of course not. That sound is
one or two of the beasts who nave
come down the hatches. You closed
them?" ' -
"No, sir. There wasn't time."
'Then they tried to get through the
conning tower, and hadn't reason
enough to know that they could get
through the hatches!" cried Donald
' joyfully.
j-jieir reason wuu i yci
f he tube. lr, unless they've got bodies
as Slim as ours," said Clouts. "And
they feel like like barrels, sir," he
addea
Overhead, the scraping continued.
. sometimes approaching the tube and i
then receding. Presently there came
the sound of a commotion. Donald
Inferred that the sea devils had found
the one that he had injured, and that
: they were satiating their horrible can-
' fdbullstlc instincts. He heard a' body
dragged this way and that, - and a
dreadful rending.
After a while the . swishing began
fagaln, and a faint tapping of flippers
against the wans, as ir me creaiures
were endeavoring to explore the in
. terlor of the ship. Occasionally a
faint, phosphorescent luminosity was
visible at the top of the tube. But . the
monsters made no attempt to descend
into the torpedo room. An idea came
- to Donald.
"Davies ! Listen to me !" he said.
They don't know we're here."
''No, sir. I was thinking "
"That they have no sense of smell."
i "Yessir."
x 'And little hearing. " At least, that
they distinguish sounds only as vibra-
tions." ?
"Yes, sir. And of course their sense
: of sight must be extremely limited.
And so, roughly, that leaves them only
the use of taste and touch, but prob
ably developed far above our own."
' "We'll beat them, Davies."
"If that's true as they can't hear
aiuch, I think, if I might, sir. Til play
bit on my mouth organ," said Clouts.
J "Just a low, humming, sir.'"
-"Itight, Clouts," answered Donald.
But simultaneously with the first
aotes tnere came irom aDove a singu
lar sound. It. seemed to be very far
away ; it was a single, mellow note, the
G of a violin, and exquisitely true. It
might have been a distant warning
buoy anchored amid the tides.
"What's that. Davies?" asked Don
ald, "I don't know, sir. The lighthouse
stopped operating when the war broke
. out, and the buoys were taken up."
Oace more the sound was heard.
And suddenly Donald knew that he had
Heard It before, the same note,, though
infinitely less powerful. It was the
sound -of .the finger on the bowl of
water within the house In Baltimore.
The scraping in the passage ended
la a scurry and did not recur. All
through the night they crouched in
the torpedo room, watching and sleep
ing by turns, and the sileuce was bro
ken only by passing word and the oc
casional tunefulness of Clouts' mouth
organ as he played ''Sally In Our Al
ley." CHAPTER VII
' Ira MacBeard.
Ira MacBeard was one of those rare
pcn who are recognized by their con
temporaries as master minds. To the
julUc he was unknown, but among
the learned he was mentioned in the
same breath with Faraday, Sir Isaac
Newton and Lavoisier. Halfield of the
.March Hares club had once honored
him "by publicly comparing him with

Vie had discovered the secret of cold
light, and had received a fortune from
one of the largest e'-ctrical companies
for destroying his papers. This en

poverty in which he had lived.

blackboard; a thin

TO FIND THE ABODE OF
He had solved the problem of utiliz
ing solar energy, although he had not
succeeded in making his process valu
able commercially.
Unfortunately, like many men of
genius, MacBeard had one disastrous
failing. He had trained himself intel
lectually at the expense of his moral
faculties. He had never learned to
control his primal gutter-urchin pro
pensities. He wa a thief.
He did not steal big things, but little
ones, and everyone knows that this Is
more damning socially.
They called it kleptomania, and let
him resign. But it was not klepto
mania; it was theft. MacBeard's ca
reer was finished. The only club that
would admit him to membership was
the Inventors' and that only because
the furious bickerings of Its members
had compelled the passage of a rule
that there should be no blackballing.
Anyone could join the Inventors' club,
but only inventors wanted to.
MacBeard, embittered, brooded over
his wrongs. They assumed monstrous
proportions in his mind. He was al
ready approaching fifty ; - he believed
that at death the soul perishes with'
the body, and the thought of his gi
gantic brain being obliterated filled
him with frenzy. He wanted to make
a lasting mark UDon the world
His first Idea was to use his solar-
energy plant to produce simultaneous
eruptions of the volcanoes in Italy and
Iceland, Japan and California upon an
unprecedented scale. A lava desert
should cover all the tilled fields and
cities, burying man a thousand feet
upder its surface and obliterating civi
lization.
The science and art of nineteen-
twentleths of the world would disap
pear. MacBeard not only hated the
world, which had made him an out
cast, but he despised it intelletrtualily
as beyond redemption. He wanted to
bestride its ruins as a superman, a
god.
However, his scheme had several,
drawbacks. ,It was utterly beyond his
financial means. He could not "fore
see exactly the results of It. There
were disturbing possibilities, and he
was not the man to act without mathe
matical exactitude. '
His vengeance must take other forms.
He wanted a less academic p.lan, one
which reeked less of the mldnighc
lamp. He wanted a more concrete,
personal frlumph. He wanted to lead
an army to victory, not to sit back
and watch,- the working out of blind
forces that he had set in motion.
Besides, destruction must be fol
lowed by construction, to satisfy his
scientific mind.
His second thought was to produce
a race of men, somewhere In the ice
bound wastes of Greenland, . that
should grow to maturity in a few
years ; a race organized for war, a pri
mal blend of man and tiger. It had
been done with the plants.
But he was too old. He would be
seventy before this plan could be car
ried to perfection. And then it was
improbable that the details would
work out as he anticipated. His final
idea came through Masterman.
Masterman was one "of the many
men whom he had broken in his days
of power. But Masterman was of a
uiirerent caliber from the rest. Mas
! ten,an had tried to come back, and
had almost succeeded. "-,
MacBeard, at first ' contemptuous of
tne old dreamer, came at last to watch
Masterman uneasily. He knew that
the old captain was crazed upon the
subject of deep-sea. life ; but he knew.
too, the facts that underlay his letters
to the newspapers.
lie had sent a paper embodylne this
subject to the magazine of the Inven
tors' club. ; Unfortunately, Halfield
had won the ballot for the editorship
that month. Masterman's srhninriv
contribution had been consigned to the
waste basket, and the articles in the
magazine nad been as follows: "A
King in Masquerade," "King James I
as universal Man." "Shakespeare and
the JIM cipher," "Bacon and the MTJ
lv,'", uai uvmzanon Owes to
j a rues l.
When, Masterman's proxy ballot wnn
the editorship during his absence, the
printers. Instead of inserting his latest
i-mwr, us ue naa requested, used a.
quantity of his old, unpublished ma
terial. j
Secretly MacBeard had known that
the carapace " which Masterman had
brought back from the North was not
that of a stegosaurus. His attack upon
Masterman had been inspired by envy
aim uairetu tie naa examined the
j relic, and admitted to himself that It
j was that of an unknown deep-water
I animal.
O
His respect for Masterman's abili
ties Increased tenfold.
He had begun spying upon the cap
tain. He broke into his house while'
he was away and read his papers, with
out, however, learning anything of use
to him. Incidentally, he stole a gold
presentation watch, a Chinese vase of
the Ming dynasty, and a pair of lapis
lazuli earrings which had belonged to
Masterman's wife.
When MacBeard heard the first ru
mors to the effect that Masterman's
ship had been wrecked, and that all
on board had perished, he planned to
fit out a secret expedition to go to the
scene of the disaster and see what was
to be discovered. Then he had seen
the captain in the dining room of the
club.
He had been thrown off his guard
by Masterman's unexpected return,
had followed him and Donald tothe
door of the card room, and had heard
the greater part of the story- He had
been unable to restrain his eagerness,
and had been detected spjing.
Balked in his scheme to get posses
sion of Masterman's letter, he had fol
lowed Donald to the house in Balti
more. There he had assaulted him
and taken the papers from him. He
had had no intention of killing Don
ald, whom he despised heartily. Once
the secret, in which he now firmly be
lieved, was in his possession, there
would come no reckoning for the as
sault. He saw his way to immediate
rulership over the world.
To do MacBeard justice, he had been
scared away, not by fear of the mon
ster, but by the realization that Mas
terman's terrific story was true. After
Donald had left the house MacBeard
crept back. He discovered the mon
ster upon the floor, where it had pre
cipitated itself in its death agony, it
had been disrupted by the internal
pressure, under a normal . atmosphere.
He made a quick examination of it.
sat down in the kitchen, and spent the
remainder of the night ' poring over
Masterman's papers. In these he
learned much that was essential to his
success.
He read that the creature In the
tank was a young one, which had not
yet acquired the power of resistance
to an ordinary atmosphere. Nature
was still in process of modifying her
creation, and, as Is always the case,
the young retained the atavistic dis
abilities, just as the young of flatfish
swim like other fishes and have one
eye on either side of the head. The
modifications in the physiological
structure come with maturity.
The adult monsters, MacBeard
learned, had already acquired the abil
ity to exist for an indefinite period
upon the surface of tne sea. While
the young had gills, these became mod
ified Into a species of lung, capable of
breathing both above and under wa
ter. This was a new adaptation of na
ture. MacBeard hurried back to the
dead monster, and found the lung al
ready partly formed. That satisfied
him that Masterman was an accurate
observer.

In the years 1915 and 191C the Ra

cases, giving 12,331 separate treat

cancer and of skin diseases. Of these,
87 were not treated, 123 were treated
too recently to record results, 33 re

tionary measure. Of the remaining

mucous membrane, bone or cartilage
and which have not previously been

cured by one treatment," says the
Lancet. v .
Danger of Sleeves and Ties.
Although time and again workmen
have been warned regarding the dan
ger, of loose clothing when working
around machinery, it., appears that
many of them persist In ignoring the
danger. As a result 9S6 workmen were
killed In fche United States by befeig
drawn Into the wheels of machinery or
thrown to death when parts of their
clothing became caught in rotating
members. Loose sleeves and neckties
are prolific sources of danger, and
should not be tolerated for a single
moment by the careful worker. Sci

Practice Economy.
The sane standard, "Eat enough food
and no more," rigidly followed, would
reduce greatly food bills in many
homes and at the same time tend to
improve the physical condition of all
members of the household.
Soy Beans as Food
Soy beans. Introduced Into the Unit
ed States more than one hundred years
ago primarily for use as a forage crop,
are in reality one of the most nutri
tious of the bean family when used as
human food, according to specialists of

JUNIOR CHAMPION ANGUS
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Practical experience as well as ex
perimental work has taught that
straw and stover can be used very eco
nomically in the rations of almost all
kinds of live stock. These roughages
are and should be used in the fat
tening rations of all farm animals ex
cept hogs, and should compose the
larger part of all wintering or keep
ing rations for cattle, sheep, and
horses. Breeding herds of beef cat
tle or dry dairy cows can be success
fully kept on rations composed large
ly of those materials. Flocks of breed
ing ewes do well with such feeds when
some grain is added. Horses doing
very light or no work need little grain
if given a plentiful allowance of clean,
bright straw or stover. Under cer
tain conditions, of course, grain should
be added to the ration, but now it
should Je conserved as largely as pos
sible for human consumption.
The following rations have been
found to give excellent results:
For Beef Cattle.
Rations for wintering breeding: cows.

Com, 12 pounds.
Ration 4
Straw. 5 pounds.
Stover, 15 pounds.
Corn, 6 pounds.
Cottonseed meal, 3 pounds.
In these rations various other feeds
mav be substituted. In the rations
given for wintering breeding cows defi
nite quantities of straw and stover
are given. In actual feeding such fig
ures should be somewhat disregarded
and the cattle given as much roughage
as they will consume.
Yearlings may be fed three-fourths
the ration for breeding cows and may
be expected to come through the win
ter In fair to good condition.
For Dairy Cattle.
' Ration for dry cows, bulls, and heifers.
Corn stover and straw, unlimited.
Clover hay, 10 pounds.

good results when supplemented by
whatever small quantities of grain
may be necessary for the health and

LIVE STOCK DEMAND
. PROPER ATTENTION
Supply Is Rapidly Being Depleted
and Serious Conditions Are
Liable to Develop.
(By R. W. CLARK, Colorado Agricultur
al College. Fort Collins.)
Save all the" heifer calves and plan
to raise more pigs. Iambs, colts, calves
and chickens next year than you did
this year. Do you know the world Is
being depleted of Its live stock?
Keep your pigs growing. They
should weigh 200 pounds at six
months of age and they are worth $10
a hundred now. Ten good pigs are
worth $300. '
Give your hogs all the alfalfa or
clover they will eat winter and sum
mer. Give them skim milk, whey,
some grain, or anything else you have
but be sure to give them all they can
eat.
Keep the calves growing. Give them
some grain, separate from milk, and
all the good hay they can eat. Veal
Is now worth 16 cents a pound. A good
veal is worth $35.
Feed the lambs well. They are worth
$20 apiece and wool is worth from 50c
to 70c a pound.
Feed the cows well. Keep them
milking. You' may dislike to see them
eat so much, but pTease give them all
they can eat all the time. The price
of milk, butter and cheese Is going out
of sight. Butter fat may be worth $1
a pound before long.
Feed and handle the mares so that
you will save all the colts next spring.
Good horses are worth $75 a head
more than they were a year ago. A
good horse Is worth $300.
SAVING STRAW FOR BEDDING

$3 a ton for wheat straw and $4 a ton
for oat straw.- At present abnormal
prices this Is increased several times.
At least 75 per cent of this should be
saved by proper conservation.
Side Dish for Pigs.
As soon as the pigs begin to eat

Country to Profit In Future From
Highways Built as Necessity of
Warfare and Defense.
It Is the gineral opinion of motor
tsts arriving In Washington from all
parts of the country that the war
with Germany Is acting as a sharp
prod to speed up road building.
Whatever the war costs the nation
In dollars and lives. It will result in
the building of thousand's of miles of
usable roads in all sections, for these
highways are now rated as one of the
necessities of warfare and defense,
6ays Washington Star.
Possibilities of an invasion are re
mote, but now that it has been decid
ed to send an" expeditionary force
abroad, it is certain that other thou
sands will follow, hence the mobiliza-.
tion of troops on the seaboard is some
thing not to be overlooked.
Railroads are up to their ears In
other work and have shown their lack
of equipment to meet ordinary de
mands of a period of fast growth and
an attendant Increase of consumption.
So other means may have to be relied
upon to hustle the boys in khaki to the
ports, whence they will sail for the
front. For this purpose the motor ve
hicle Is ready, and all it needs to add
to its wonderful record of efficiency in
a pinch is a system of roads which can
be traveled in safety and at speed dur
ing all seasons.
Here on the East, where the troops
will be massed before sailing, good
roads are considered as of vital Inter
est to the nation just' as the raising
of vegetables In fields and yards which
heretofore have produced nothing.
Throughout the Atlantic area the
road builders are hard at it, and, in
spite of the urgency of the calls for
men for other purposes, help is being
enlisted In the cause.
An immense amount of road building
work is being done In the South, and
in the Central West thousands of miles
of roads are under way, these forming
the connecting link and making pos
sible hurried trips if such are needed.
Experts point out that automobiles can
take an army of 100,000 men from the
Middle West to New York In less time
than can the railroads, and when the
highways are Improved a great cut

will be made in the running time of
the motor cars.
The" West Is not overlooking any
thing In the way of road building.
There Is not a state in which it is not
one of the big movements, even in a
part of the country which Is least af
fected. What Virginia Is ,doing Is being un
dertaken in greater or less degree by
many Eastern states.
HIGH VALUE OF GOOD ROADS
Estimated Cost of $900,000,000 to Gel
Surplus Farm Products to Mar
ket or to Railroad.
After careful Inquiry It has beer,
found that the average haul of the
American farmer in getting hl3 prod
uct to market or to the nearest ship
ping station is 12 miles, and the aver
age cost of hauling over the common
country roads is 25 cent3 a ton per
mile, or $3 a ton for a 12-mile haul.
An estimate places the total tons
hauled at 300,000,000 a year. On the
estimate of $3 a ton for 12 miles this
would make the total costof getting
the surplus products of the farm to
the local market or to the railroad no
less than $900.000,000 a figure greater
than the operating expenses of all the
railroads of the United States. If any
thing could make an argument for
good wagon roads this statement sure
ly may.

Patching done in the proper manner
when the road Is wet. followed by a

road surface as good as new until It Is
so badly worn that an entirely new sur
face Is required.

Gift to, British.
A munificent gift to the British na

man, in' the form of his famous collec

ters, including notable examples by
Rubens and Vandyck. There are up
wards of fifty pictures in the collec
tion, which will be handed to a trust
to be known as the National Collection

Island of Mindoro.
So prolific was the Island of Mindoro
in the Philippines at one time in the
production of rice that It was popular
ly called "the granary of the Philip
pines." Sugar, cotton, hemp, and oth
er crops thrive on the island, when
properly cultivated. Yet its economic
conditions are extremely backward,
and a large part of Its population Is In
a constant state of poverty. It has al
together about 30.000 Inhabltants.
Among these are 18.000 Tagalogs, 7.200
Mangyanes, 2.000 Vlsayans. and of
Docanos less than 1,000. Of the whole,
over 7,000 are pronounced savage; a
large proportion of the remainder are
densely Ignorant.

Mr. Reuter Went Through a
TerribleSiege of Kidney
Trouble. Doan's Brought
Back His Health.
"After an iniury I tu in terrible
shape from kidney trouble," saya D.
Reuter, North St., West Chicago, in.
"I couldn't stoop because of the awful
paina in my back and the steady, dull
misery almost drove me
frantic. I had to be help
ed out of bed morning,
the pains across my kid
neys were so bad and no
body knows the agony I
went through. I couldn't
do anything and - was al
most helpless; it seemed
I would never get welL
"The urine passed far
too often and burred like
scaldine water. The pas
sages were scanty and I had no control
over them. At times everything 'in
front of me grew dark and I couldn't
see for several minutes. I perspired
profuselv and I was thirsty all the
time. I'or two years I suSered, trying
medicine after medicine without relief.
I was just about discouraged and didn't
think I would ever be able to work
again.
"Hearing about Doan's KiZney Pills
I used them and four boxes cured me.
My kidneys became normal, my back
got well and strong and all the other
troubles disappeared.'
