The man whom King Vic tor Emmanuel halls as the nost dan gerous man in Europe is neither Com munist, Socialist nor criminal. He, like his father and grandfather be fore him, keeps a store where safes are sold. This in itself is not an un lawful profession, but he Inherited from his father, besides the Email store oft" the IMazza di Spragna, the knack of being capable of opening any safe in the world with the help of a bit of stiff wire. Never in his life has he been forced to break a safe open. He has been summoned by people of all nations and professional men to open safes that had jammed. But not only private in dividuals call him ; the other day King Victor Emmanuel needed his services. The king had left his keys in his pri vate safe, where his wonderful collec tion of coins is kept. He was worried, as his favorite amusement every day Is rearranging these coins. He was very much worried until they told him that a specialist for safes lived in Rome and would be called to the royal villa. His Real Name Withheld. Mr. X (his real name must be kept secret, as the tax collector would levy a heavier income tax were it known ! that he was called to the villa) hastened to the Villa Savola and found the king pacing up and down the study. "You must -not damage the safe, as there Is my precious collection inside," said the kng. "No, your majesty," replied Mr. X, I do not need even to damage the lock." Mr. X looked wjth a profes sional air at the safe. "I am afraid you will find it a diffi cult task, as it Is a Chubb Special," said the klng. -Mr X . inserted the wlre, felt with the Wire Inside, deli cately twisted it here and there, then opened the safe door. "Here, your majesty, your safe Is opened." The king was very much astonished. and sald.iou are tbe most danger ous man I have ever met." Mr. X re plied: "I would be were I not hon est." w .... iur. - is ramy m Ms store, as bis fame has traveled abroad and be Is often telegraphed for to start at a moment's notice. Before the war he was called many times to Berlin to open the ex-kaiser's safe and he was recommended also to Francis Joseph, who often left his keys Inside his se cret safe, and would allow no one but Mr. X to open or try to open it i Many Diplomats Call Him. Diplomats, lawyers, doctors, all call him when they need a reliable doctor for their safes. When asked how he did the trick, Mr. X said: "It is purely a question of touch. I am like a specialist who, without operating, can tell by examining a patient, by touching him what is the matter In side. Jamming of safes is like a case ! of lockjaw. With ray wire I can lo cate the trouble inside the lock. . Be sides, my experience I Inherited from father, who in tlj time was tbe only, lock speclalisr In the world." Sometimes It takes five minutes, and often he hat to probe lor 20 minutes or half an hour, but never In his life has he had to damage a lock in order to open a Safe.

LIVES IN PERPETUAL TERROR Man Falls From Train During Fight Which Resulted From Disagree ment Over Dice Game and An tagonist Thought Him Dead. Kansas City, Mo. Reuben E. Hall of Paris, Mo., met face to face In a Denver (Colo.) street a man whom he thought he had killed 14 years ago and the memory o? whose alleged death had haunted him all these years. A letter telling of the remarkable case came from Denver to I. H. Shatzer, manager of the Tool Specialty company. It was irom anaizers uuu. brother, Reuben E. Hall.

This is a photograph of the engineers' sketch. ; letter received by Mr. Shatzer was signed with a strange name, Harry E. Thomas. It contained this story of thej disappearance of the new name: In Perpetual Torment. For 14 years Hall, under the-name of Harry E. Thomas of Denver, has quaked at the sight of a police officer. He has avoided all persons he knew whenjhe was Hall. He has spent wake ful nights, fearing arrest for murder. A wife and then a child served to add to his anxieties. What, if they should discover he had killed a man? But the worry Is over. Thomas was walking recently on a Denver street. He met the man for whose murder he believed he was hunted, the letter states. The two recognized each other . at the same time. The "murdered" man held out his hand in greeting. "I thought I killed you." Thomas gasped. "Land, 170," the "victim" replied. "I, was only bruised a little," In the 14 years since his disappear ance Hall's family has mourned him as dead. Relatives after a diligent search, took steps to collect his Insur ance, but lacking proof of death, were unable to do so. , Of what happened after Hall, with $175 in wages, left the harvest field3 the letter has this to say: "I got i: to a dice game. I won $750. One of the heavy losers was John Wil liamson. He and I fought over the $ ' , then patched up our differences. j,-dly, we climbed into a box car to go 10 Kansas City.

"The next day I read In a paper that the body of an unidentified man had been found on the railroad richt of way. I was not guilty of murder, but to prove It was a different thing. Others had seen us quarrel. "I went West, changed my name to Themas and grew up with the country. Finally I settled In Denver, waa mar ried and now have a daughter six years old.'

FLEMISH TENACITY WINNING OUT Regenerating Efforts of Peas ants Restore Flanders Fields. Belgians, Working to Rebuild Homes and Salvage Barren Lands, Aided by Loans of Motors. Brussels. "No Man's Land" again belongs to the brave 1 Belgian peas ants, un apparent miracle having been wrought In Flanders fields by these courageous people, who, with the help of the Belgian government, have re gained the ground which once- seemed devastated beyond rehabilitation. Not satisfied with the deaths of soldiers, murders of women and children and devastation of cities, the German in vaders sought to wipe out nature en tirely, but their efforts were In vain. On the very places where, two years 1-1 . A lit. ago, the armies were rusniug 10 " eratc Belgium, and where the sou wa ters, receding uncovered grinning skel etons of German soldiers, burled tu the mud of the Yser river banks, wheat and barley, corn and potatoes, llowers and young apple trees are now flour Ishlng. . For two y.ears the Belgian peasants lived in huts, the ruins of their homes, or in German concrete shelters, suffer ing untold hardships in winter, but Im bued with the spirit of regeneration. They worked to remove the barbed wire and unexploded shells, and many of them lost their lives when the plow met some buried shell. But persever ance won. From 313,000 souls In 1014 the population dwindled to nothing In 1018, and back to 185,000 In 1910. There Is now a population of 237,000. The ministry of agriculture, under the management of Buron Iluzette and his staff of specialists, with M. Boer- enboom nt their head, organized the relief work. Motor trnctors were loaned by the government. The fields, soaked with sea suit, were revived with chalk and chemicals, and Flan ders awakened from her deadly sleep and Is again bright with vegetatio. The farms are bigger than ever before, and the concrete shelters which, two years ago, heard the German officers yelling to the unfortunate soldiers, "schweinhunde," now hear the grunt ing of little pigs, for the thrifty Flem ish peasants have turned to account all of the salvaged Implements of warfare which could be used. , Here and there are sacred spots, bright with bloody popples, - marking the final resting places of the brave Belgian, French, British and American soldiers, untouched by the regenerat ing hands of the Flemish workers.
