"What's this?" he cried In a high, screaming voice. "What is the mean ing this this intrusion? Didn't I send you word that I would see you tomor row morning?" "I am sorry," said I, but the matter cannot be delayed. Mr. Sherlock Holmes" The mention of my friend's name had an extraordinary effect upon the little man. The look of anger passed in an instant from bis face. His fea tures became tense and alert. "Have" you come from Holmes?" he "I have just left him." "What about Holmes? How is he?" He is desperately ill. That is why I have come." The man motioned me to a chair and turned to resume his own. As he did so I caught a glimpse of his face in the mirror above the mantlepiece. I could have sworn that it was set in a malicious and abominable smile. Yet I persuaded myself that it must have been some nervous contraction which I had surprised, for he turned to me an instant later with genuine concern upon his features. I am sorry to hear this, said he. would be obviously Impossible. Did he ask what ailed me?" "I told him about the Chinese in the East End." "Exactly! Well, Watson, you have done all that a good friend could. You can now disappear from the scene." "I must wait and hear his opinion. Holmes." "Of course you must. But I have reasons to suppose that this opinion would be very much more frank and valuable if he imagines that we are alone. There is just room behind the head of my bed, Watson." "My dear Holmes." "I fear there is no alternative, Wat son. The room does not lend itself to concealment, which is as well, as it is the less likely to arouse suspicion But just there, Watson, I fancy that it could be done." Suddenly he sat up with a rigid intentness upon his hag' gard face. "There are the wheels, Watson. Quick, man, if you love me! And don't budge whatever happens whatever happens, do you hear? Don't speak! Don't move! Just listen with all your ears." Then in an instant his sudden access of strength departed and his masterful purposeful talk droned away into the low, vague mur- murings of a semidelirious man. WOULD INTRODUCE , AUTOS IN BERMUDA (By Associated Press) HAMILTON, Bermuda, April 21. Renewed efforts to enact a law per mitting the use of automobiles in Ber muda have been made this spring by member of the Bermuda assembly. These island have held out thus far against what is considered a "danger ous innovation," but there is a strong party for rapid transit. The chief opponents of automobiles are American winter residents and tourists. Mrs. Vincent Astor, of New York, who has been occupying a resi dence on Hamilton harbor for the past two seasons, sent a letter to the local newspaper objecting to their in troduction on the island. As this colony has only a little more than 19 square miles of area, visitors do not regard motor trans port as a necessity. Since the Island of Nantucket admitted automobiles, ibis is about the only civilized place from which they are barred. Labor Meetings Continued on May 1 This Year (By Associated Press) PARIS. April 21. Although May 1 falls on a Sunday this year, no excep tion will be made to the general rule of meetings and demonstrations of other years. This has been decided by the administrative commission of the General Labor Federation. The trans-port services of Paris and the tram and omnibus services of other large cities will not be stopped, in order that no workers may have an excuse for not attending the meetings. The demonstrations will be held in support of the demands of the Inter national Syndicalist Federation, which call for the socialization of the prin cipal means of transport.

Old second hand war material dumped into Greece after the armistice upon which profiteers made a fortune in the cause of the reverses lately suffered by the Greek army in Asia Minor, according to Dr. Barton W. Brush, of Elmhurst, L. I., who has just returned from serv ice behind the Greek front with the Near East Relief. "All the left-over war supplies for which the European countries had no further use after 191S .seem to have been sold to the Greeks in the past three years, and that is all the Greek army has to fight with," Dr. Brush de clared. "In the past three years vast for tunes have been made in Greece out of army supplies, and now the Greek soldiers are paying lor it. There are no hospitals, no hospital equipment, no ambulances worth the name, and the wounded have little chance except lor such care as the American Near East Relief can give them." Accord ing to Dr. Brush the Greek people were wildly enthusiastic about thp war, and eager to drive the Turk3 out of Smyrna, for good.

The trial recently was postponed on account of the serious illness of Prosecutor Dilts. Judge W. E. Pente cost will preside. J some business dealings which we have had, but I have every respect for his talents and bis character. He is an amateur of crime, as I am of disease. For him the villain, for me the mi crobei There are my prisons," he con tinued, pointing to a row of bottles and jars which stood upon a side table. "Among those gelatin cultures some of the very worst offenders in the world are now doing time." "It was on account of your special knowledge that Mr. Holmes desired to see you.. He has a high opinion of you and thought that you were the one man in London who could help him." The little man , started, and the jaunty smoking cap slid to the floor. "Why?" he asked. ''Why should Mr. Holmes think that I could help him in his trouble?" "Because of your knowledge of East ern diseases." "But why should he think that this disease which he has contracted is Eastern?" "Because, in some professional in quiry, he has been working among Chinese sailors down m the docks. "Mr. Culverton Smith smiled pleas antly and picked up his smoking-cap. "Oh, that's it, is it?" said he. "I trust the matter is not so grave as you suppose. How long has he been ill?" "About three days." "Is he delirious?" "Occasionally." "Tut, tut! This sounds serious. It would be inhuman not. to answer his call. I very much resent any inter ruption to my work. Dr. Watson, but this case is certainly exceptional. I will come with you at once." re-entered Holmes's bedroom. For all "I have another appointment," I said. "Very good! I will go alone. I have a note of Mr. Holmes's address. You can rely upon my being there within half and hour at most." It was with sinking heart that I re-entered Holmes's bedroom. For all that I knew, the worst might have happened in my absence. To my enormous relief he had improved greatly in the interval. His appear ance was as ghastly .as ever, but all trace of delerium had left him, and he spoke in a feeble voice, it is true, but with even more than his usual criapness and lucidity. "Well, did you see hfm, Watson?" "Yes, he is coming." "Admirable, Watson. Admirable! You are the best of messengers." "He wished to return with me." "That would never do, Watson. That opening and the closing of the bed room door. Then, to my surprise, there came a long Bilence, broken only ! by the heavy breathing and gaspings I of the sick man. I could imagine that our visitor was standing by the bed side and looking down at the sufferer. At last that strange hush was broken. "Holmes!" he cried. "Holmes!" in the insistent tone of one who awakens a sleeper. "Can't you hear me. Holmes?" There was a rustling as if he had shaken the sick man roughly by the shoulder. "Is that you, Mr. Smith?" Holmes whispered. "I hardly dared hope that you would come." The other laughed. " I should imagine not," he said. "And yet, you see I am here. Coals of fire. Holmes coals of fire!"
