THE OUTCOME
So it happens that when he leaves
college and is ordained a minister he
comes to his home as pastor of the
village church. Then tho tragedy of
poor Susie's life is born. William weds
a flighty beautiful girl who repays
his love by accepting the attentions of
less worthy men. But she is pun
ished by fate. Susie, although she
never has forgotten that she was the
bearer of flowers at the wedding of the
man she loved, protects the erring wife
and it is only after the latter's death
that William comes to a realization
of Susie's great love and both find
happiness.
Sweet Lillian Gish plays the part of

Mystery."
The second episode of "The Master
Mystery," the great Houdint serial, is
replete with astonishing feats of self
liberation by the handcuff king, feats
which are calculated to make even the
riost blase spectator gasp. It will be

n strenuous trick that only Houdlni
has been able to accomplish. Hardly
has ho freed himself, however, when
he Is again in difficulty. Seized and
rendered senseless by the emissaries of
the giant Automaton, Locke is bound
at his wrists with ropo, the loops of
which are passed over nails in the
wall, leaving Locke hung suspended in
tho air. The Automaton puts an em
issary on guard. Locke recovers to
find his guard asleep and seizes the
opportunity to escape.
Encircling the emissary's throat
with his legs Locke throttles his
guard and while still hanging by his
hands In space wiggles off a shoe and
stocking, thrusts his bate foot in the
guardsman's pocket, draws forth a key
ring, selects the right key and Insert
ing It in the keyhole, turns the lock.
Opening the door Locke swings it
close enough to give him the leverage
he requires and by resting against it
hoists himself high enough to slip the
rope loops over the nallheads and.
lcavo him free.
Tho scene was photographed In an
uninterrupted close-up to prove the
genuineness of Houdinl's feat.
