"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 WAR MATERIAL
CAUSES GREEK LOSS
(Bt Associated Pre)
NEW YORK, April 21. 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.
TRIAL OF BOY, 11, ALLEGED
MURDERER, SET FOR MAY 31
LAPORTE, Ind., April 21. The trial
of Cecil Burkett, 11 years old, charged
with murdering Bencie Slavin, 7 years
old, a playmate, was set today to be
gin in the Knox circuit court. May 31.
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!"
