'Continued.)
1 nave no mystic power to read the I
mind or the heart of another, but I
perceived clearly enough that Mr.'
Bnrnham was in love with Miss
Vaughn and that she did not find her
self able to respond. To settle this
point I ventured to say that I had
heard she was quite pretty.
"Pretty!" echoed Burnham. "Well,
that's hardly the word
I I happen to
have a portrait of her."
And he pretended to forget which
pocket it was in. It was an ordinary
cabinet photograph, but it showed a
most extraordinary face, a dainty com
posite of womanly and childish quali
ties. I would not have been able to de
cide from this picture whether Miss
Vaughn was fifteen years old or twenty-five,
and after my first glance I look
ed up at Burnham and asked, "How
old is she?"
He laughed.
"You'd be as much puzzled if you
saw the original." he said, and this
proved to be no exaggeration. "The
youth, I think, is in the lower part of
the face. What a pretty mouth and
chin! Did you ever see such a pretty,
mouth and chin? There's all the dim
pled sweetness, all the quick sensitive
ness of girlhood, and yet no weakness.
But there's a calmness in the forehead
and eyes the eyes a bit long, as you
notice, with very delicately marked
brows. The eyes are deep blue and all
the coloring exquisite. Her hair is
like the gold of Ophir. It may seem
bad taste for me to run on like this,"
he added suddenly, "but Miss Vaughn's
beauty is such a simple and natural
thing that one feels no hesitation in
speaking of it. Why, even in her pres
ence I sometimes find myself howev
er, that's neither here nor there. You
asked how old she was. She'll be
eighteen next week."
"If the young lady's peculiar powers
are of interest to science," said I, "it
would seem as if some financial ar
rangement might be made whereby"
"We've suggested that, but she won't
listen to it," he interrupted. "The
queer part of it is that Miss Vaughn
insists that she has no powers which
are not shared by all our apecies. She
has, though." j
vVe had reached Burnham's lodgings
by this time, and there we conversed
for an hour or more upon the subject
of the experiments which had been
made in the case of Miss Vaughn.
They seemed to me to possess, the
vague and unsatisfactory character
which I had learned to associate with
common fraudulent practices. The
young lady answered questions con
cerning matters of which she was sup
posed to have no knowledge, peculiar
ities of persons whom she had not
seen, incidents in the lives of the ques
tioners or of their friends. It was not
able that she passed into no state of
trance or mesmeric sleep. She remain
ed entirely normal, not even exhibiting
the excessive fatigue which usually
follows such manifestations. She did
show repugnance, however, and was
always more pleased when she failed
than when she succeeded. After a se
ries of failures she would laugh almost
hysterically and display a childish re
lief and delight. Her successes de
pressed her. The best of them, so far
as I could learn, were not conclusive,
but there were some that were hard to
explain upon any natural hypothesis,
and they must have been extremely
startling to the inquirers.
As Burnham continued to speak I be
came less hopeful of Miss Vaughn as a
possible subject of investigation, less
interested in her as a psychic, but far
more interested in her as a woman.
Somehow the words of this fiery but
hopeless lover, this poor little, thin,
dark, ugly faced fellow, who had no
right to crave a beautiful woman ex
cept that he couldn't help it built up
before my mind's eye a very charming
personality.
I talked the matter over with Hack
ett, and we agreed that Miss Vaughn
was undoubtedly worthy of substantial
assistance, if it could be rendered with
out offense. Her situation was cer
tainly most lamentable and involved
no fault of her own. Having heard of
this case, we could hardly "pass by
on the other side," as Hackett ex
pressed it. The fact is that my part
ner had been playing the role of the
good Samaritan in many towns that we
had visited, and mostly to the unde
serving, I am afraid,
We decided that I should call upon
Miss Vaughn, and so I asked Burnham
to secure her permission; but he told
me very promptly that he did not care
to undertake the errand.
"I couldn't lie to her," said he. "She'd
have to know the object of your visit
here, and then she wouldn't see you."
Incidentally 1 learned during this
conversation that Miss Vaughn was an
intellectual prodigy, having been the(
youngest girl ever graduated from
Smith college. Indeed, she would prob-j
ably not have been admitted to that
institution if her age had been correct-!
ly stated, but her. aunt had misrepre-1
sented the matter to the authorities.;
Her record had been exemplary, both
for scholarship and conduct. I

Which Is the Key of the Seven
By HOWARD FIELDING
"but I really don't see how she's going
to live till we can find her a position."
After leaving Burnham's room I went
at once alone to the Eustia residence,
which must have been considered quite
a grand house in its day. A despondent
old woman answered my ring and ad
mitted me into a chilling, gloomy at
mosphere and eventually into a small
room at the rear of the hall. It had
the look of neglect, as if it had not been
used in some weeks. My eye was at
tracted by a small table unlike the
other' furniture and awkwardly placed
near a window. It waf littered with
loose sheets of writing paper, which
were dusty, and some or them were
covered with scrawls in pencil as if a
child had played with them.
(To be Continued.)
IN THE THIRD DISTRICT
Everything Was Done by Acclamation
There Today.
Indianapolis, April 21. The Third
district Republican congressional con
vention was held at New Albany to
day. W. L. Taylor of this city, War
ren G. Sayre of Wabash, and Judge
Penfield or Auburn, candidates for gov
ernor, left here on an early morning
train to attend. George Self of Cory
don, candidate for reporter of the su
preme and appellate courts, accompan
ied them. He is now the only Third
district candidate, and he was enthusi
astically indorsed there today. J. F.
Dillion of Jasper, Dubois county, was
nominated for congress and Sam Wul
fram of rfuntingburg, and Harry Mc
Grain of Coryuon for delegates to the
national convention ?' Chicago. Ev
erything was done by acclamation.
This is a strong Democratic district,
but the candidate for congress has
strong hopes of cutting down the ma
jority. The Third will send a large
delegation to Indianapolis to work for
the nomination of Self. The latter.
by the way, will be the only old soldier
candidate before the convention, as he
is a veteran of the war of the '60s.
After tomorrow all of the candidates
for places on the Republican state
ticket will open headquarters at the
Hotel English, and then the real strug
gle will begin. Taylor is going tc
move over trom the State Life build
ing, where he has had a large force
busy for some -time. Hanly and Pen-
field have been at the English for sev
eral days. Hugh Th. Miller and Perry
Newby, the candidates for lieutenant
governor, are now there, and Sayre
says he will be on hand Saturday. Self,
Smith, Nash and Corwin, the candi
dates for reporter of the supreme and
appellate courts, will have their head
quarters Sn running order by tomor
row nignt. None of the candidates
seem superstitious, as they are going
ahead with their headquarter opening
tomorrow regardless of the fact that
it is Friday. The vanguard of the
party workers is here, and by Satur
day night k is fully expected that be
tween two and three hundred will be
on hand.
The work of building the platform
for the Republican state convention
this year will not be so difficult, as it
is the general understanding that
there will be a "stand pat" policy.
However, the matter is to receive very
careful attention, and Monday night
there will be a conference to which
the members of congress, Senators
Fairbanks and Beveridge, Addison C.
Harris, Judge A. O. Marsh. Governor
Durbln and other state officials will be
invited by Chairman Goodrich. It is
probable that the document will be
framed up and ready for the commit
tee on resolutions to be appointed the
following morning. Among the im
portant features will be the indorse
ment of the candidacy of President
Roosevelt, Senator Beveridge for re
election, the policy of the state admin
istration and the action of the Indiana
Republican delegation in congress.
The appointment of Harry Adams of
this city as sergeant at arms for the
Republican state convention is satis
factory to all the candidates. The pub
lic does not realize what a hard job it
is to select a man for this position
who is satisfactory to all the men who
want places on the ticket. To the
average politician, however, the advan
tage of having a sergeant at arms on
your side is obvious, and it was that
feature that made the selection diffi
cult. All of the candidates are watch
ins their opponents now like hawks
to keep them from getting any. ad van
tage, but they are not worried much
about Adams, who is generally known
as a fair man.
Herrlck Calls a Halt.
Columbus, O., April 21. Governor
Herrick has sent a message to the leg
islature calling a halt in appropria
tions. He declares that unless the rev
enues of the state are increased $500,
000 appropriations made and contem
plated must be reduced nearly $1,000,
000 to prevent a deficit. He suggests
that the appropriation of $80,000 for a
governor's residence be eliminated,
urges a direct inheritance tax law and
the proposed constitutional amend
ment pn taxatjoa which be says w.quld
give the state a large revenue from
"fugitive property now listed outside
the state. - . ,: - . ;.. :
Slot Machines Take Flight.
Bedford, Ind., April 21.' The agita
tion aroused since the prevent city
campaign began between the three
candidates for mayor on the Republi
can, Democrat and Citteens' tickets
has swept out the slot machines, run
ning for the' last two years in every
saloon in 'the city, and not one is now
doing business. The owners of these
machines became alarmed over the
pressure of public opinion, fearing that
it eventually would compel the author
ities to act, and the machines were
boxed up and sent to Linton.
It Is Now Judge Hunt.
Washington, April 21. Tho nomina
tion of Governor William H. Hunt of
Porto Rico as the successor to Judge
Hiram Knowles as United States dis
trict judge in Montana, has been con
firmed by the senate. Governor Hunt
expects to return to Porto Rico to con
clude his work there before assuming
his new duties.
Will Go to Oregon.
Crawfordsville, Ind., April 21. The
Rev. Harry N. Mount, ron of the late
Governor James A -Mount, has accept
ed a call to the pastorate of the Pres
byterian church at Eugene, Ore. Mr.
Mount has practically recovered his
health, and he feels equal to the task
of resuming ministerial work.
Muskrats Jeopardize Life.
Carbondale, 111., April 21 The old
Equality coal mine was flooded by
muskrats burrowing around the shaft
and the bank of the Saline river, and
100 miners had a narrow escape from
drowning. The men were at work
when the alarm was given that water
was pouring ir.to the mine. Immedi
ately thev crowded into the hoists,
and by the t.me the last men were
taken out they were standing in water
up to their necks. It is estimated that
it will take nearly a week to pump
the hiine out.
Alleged Conspirator Released.
St. Petersburg, April 21. Ludmila
Re.nianikoff, one of the members of
the "fighting organization of the Rus
sian revolutionists," who was tried

field, Michael Melkinoff and Faen

important officials, including M. Sip

who was killed in 1902, has been re
leased from custody.
