“You men are not eating jour rations,”
I protested on the last day of 1319.
“We sleep a lot. So we don’t need
a large allowance of food,” explained
Ihe engineer. “I suppose you think you
can hibernate, like boars,” I scolded.
•’Well, if you're going! to live on sleep,
you’d ‘better get more of It. For that
reason. I am going to take my share
(>f the guard, from now on.’,’
“Better not begin tonight, Mrs. Lori
mer," laughed Gene Archer. “It's the
last day of the yeir, you know. Why,
goblins will walk as the clock strikes
twelve and ghosts will stalk when 1920
pushes open Its door, you know!”
“If only something would happen — f ’
I laughed.
“Almost anything might happen—ln
this strange place—tonight,” agreed Dr.
Spence.
“I’m going to take the midnight watch
Just the same, boys,” I Insisted.
And so, at midnight, being the only
person awake in the room. I heard the
far-off chiming of the church bells. Don
na Camilla was due to call on the mor
row.’ That was the message those bells
brought to me. When she came, the
men of whose presence she had -no knowl
edge, would seize her and we would walk
forth to our coveted freedom!
I was half dazed by the vision of lib
erty. With my eyes fixed vacantly on
a panel of the wall opposite me, I went
over and over events—as they ought to
happen New Year's day.
Suddenly the panel In the wall moved
us if it were ota a hinge. it was not
the door by which I bad entered Christ
mas day. I rubbed m.v eyes, closed them
and raised the lids to find the door wide
open!
I rushed toward it, too startled to cry
but an alarm. I held it open, felt before
meflnto the darkness and then called to
my companions:
“Come! Come! We're tree! Free!”
Before I had finished, the swinging
door swept me forward and clicked bo
hind me!
I stretched my arms to the right and
to the left. T was in a narrow closet.
Four cold stone walls were close
In a flash there came to me the obi
.-tery of sinful nuns. They were never
condemned to die. There was Constance
fie Beverly and her 'over. Holy men
had tried the pair and their decree had
road.
. “Sister! Let thy sorrows cease.
“Sinful brother! Part in peace!”
Then the girl and the monk who had
loved her were immured in a stone cell
like—like one—whose walls T felt
so close to mej I had stepped into a
cell which had, in all probability, been
invented for the punishment of recreant
nuns!
I screamed —T hammered on the door
of my ofell. Then something mysteri
ously terrifying happened.
Every time I pounded upon the door
the floor beneath me rocked slightly. 1
felt that my cell was sinking with mo
down—down!
I screamed again—hut owing to my
excellent habit of restraint, I no longer
pounded on the door.
I could hear Spence and Archer rap
ping back a message (o me.
And then what I most feared—hap
pened !
One of men seized a ehalr and
began to pound away at the door of
niy coset!
He set my cel! in motion! Every blow
sent me farther and farther away from

dogma and strike out in unbeaten paths.

Miss Bennett takes the part of a girl
engaged in the task of rescuing her father

working up to a climax that, is out of
the ordinary. William Conklin, Claire
McDowell, Dorcas Matthews and Gladys
George are in the cast. Subsidary Aims
are the Fox news weekly and a comedy.

Another Mosquito
Breeding Place
A breeding place for mosquitoes, often
overlooked, is the drainage from ice
boxes. Often this waste water is allowed
to collect underneath a residence or
porch, and being undisturbed is an ideal
breeding place for malaria-bearing mos
quitoes. Often, In country districts, re
frigerator drainage is allowed to run out
one the ground. Here it collects in lit
tle pools which provide equally good
breeding spots.
