Explaining that they would be trailed by the hellhounds, Craig head effected the stratagem of | "fetching a compass round about 1 the tower of the Interlocking ! switch" down the railway track. They crossed a dim field, followed a farm road, and came back into the villiage from the opposite side. Craighead peered up and down the street, hastily opened a gate be fore which they had been slinking, and hurried Carson up to a broad porch, under tall elms and maples, knobby with swelling buds. He pushed a button and they waited. Carson inspected Its exterior, and pronounced the establishment distinctly old. The house was a columned, old fashioned edifice, which in an unpretentious colonial way was fine and impressive. The grounds must have covered two acres. The trees were strong, wholesome specimens, so high and bosky as to make the place shad owy like a wood. The grass had been left undipped the preceediug year, and was uneven like a pas ture. A cow peered at them around the veranda. Near the fence stood a farm wagon, equipped with side boards for the hauling of corn: Harrows and other farm tools lay about as if got out in anticipation of the work of spring; and all these in the grounds of a well kept house, thoroughly in repair. Even the escutcheon of the push button, on which Craighead pushed ed again, was polished until it shone. At slow steps in the hall Craig head squeezed Carson's arm spas modically. The door opened and a low figure stood before them iv which Theodore noted something ! familiar, and a voice not altogether j strange, he thought, invited them into the "other room." "Mr. Carson," said Mr. Craig head, "does not recognize in our host 'the erstwhile guide of my wandering and wobbly feet. Mr. ; Carson, in your new and fully es j tablished capacity as a respectable citizen, let me present to you Mr. 1 Waddy, to whose counsel, precept and example, wnile acting as my ( attendant, I feel myself indebted lor my complete restoration to Philistinehood. Mr. Carson, Mr. ' YVaddy!" Mr. Waddy ignoring this reintro iduction led them silently down the hall, past a door, which gave forth scuffling sounds, female voices, and the peeping of young chickens ; and took them into a snug den, j the shelves of which were covered i with books, tall, imposing, learned ' looking tomes in time darkened j bindings; where they sat down in ' leather covered chairs, gray with dust.

THE SPOKANE PRESS, SUNDAY, MAY 1,1910. By HERBERT QUICK Author of Double Trouble swinging door of a small cast Iron stove, the pipe of which ran Into i the chimney above a fine old man , tel, and threw in a double handfull lof corncobs from a box in the cor | ner. The fire roared up, and, by I its flickering light, Theodore saw i that the curious looking machine 1 which flanked a fine bust of Shakespeare, was a cream; separa- I tor; and what he had taken for a frieze in alto-relievo was a string of seed corn, composed of pairs of ears tied together by their husks, and hung over a wire. In Ita deep er personal implications it was the most baffling room Theodore had ever seen. "You see here," said Craighead, "an illustration of the manner In which the souls of things express those of people. Here we find the reflective mingled with the defect ive, serials with cereals, literature with litter, the diary with the dairy, expressing our good friend Mr. Waddy, who combines the types of the more or less honest prince of haute finance and the horny handed son of toil. The owner of eight banks sits here in the shade of his own cream separa " tor and seed corn, surrounded by art, Aldines and Elzevirs, all coated with the desiccated soil from which we are made, to which we return, and out of which, under moister conditions, all wealth is derived. I am touched." "I ain't," said Mr. Waddy. "Not yit!" A pause succeeded this Delphic remark. Either Mr. Craighead was doubtful as to Mr. Waddy's exact ' meaning, or he sought the psychol j ogical effect of silence. j "So you did reely drop into the garden?" their host finally asked. \ "Yes," answered Carson. "I think it was foolish to take the , risk —but I did." "Why?" queried Waddy; and ; Carson explained. "Boy foolishness," said Mr. Wad dy; and silence fell again, broken at last by Therodore's inquiry as >to whther Mr. Waddy was active :in eight banks, and if he did not find it irksome. "No," replied Waddy, still Del phic. "The things growed up on me. I never wanted to be a bank er; but my rents kep' loadln' me lup with deposits, an' I sort of got lone bank after another —darn it! Country banks —the boys run 'em. ] I came here to have a quiet tint ) !in my own way—an' see how J .make out!" < This conclusion was so full of rancor that Theodore felt hurt), and was about to say that if Ml. Waddy's privacy was so preciou; he would no longer intrude; when their host, at the sound of th! dragging of some heavy body in thf> [hall, ceased pulling his beard ami j eyebrows to the vanishing point lin his facial perspective towarl jwiiich they all seemed directec, stealthily peeped out and returnel smiting his palm with his fist in i unmistakable agitation. "Takin' out the incubator!" he cried. 'The hutoh'll be ruined! jlluined!" "Pardon me," sard Craighead, "if I mention the fact that some change—or cataclysm—seems tak ing place here," "I'd got shut of 'em all," wailed ; Mr. Waddy. "They wanted me to , put on style! They reckoned I was going to when I bought this place. 1 could slick up and go to stockholders meetin's—an' the boys never knowed! An' just as I got tilings right, Caroline's man dies I an' here she comes to 'take care' of nic! I shan't be allowed to Cain B cent by workln' for Wither- I spoon- and it brought me into such i society! Them jags is mighty nice fellers, some of 'em." "1 thank you." said Craighead, with an excess of manner. "And 'as for your being condemned by | family pride to sterile uselessness, it is truly a shame. But, is Caro , line a relative?" i "Inly daughter," answered Mr. ' Waddy, "Cone to live with me. Setttn' things to rights!" "Mr. Waddy," said Craighead, hear up Under this. It may be for j the best. And let us take up Mr. Carson's great project for monop olizing aviation. I have long be lieved that some one would turn up with a machine to subordinate all others; but since the time of San- I tos-Dumont, Farman and the Wrights, aerial navigation has made no real progress. Mr. Car son is the genuis We offer you j the unique chance to be with us co-master of the world. Mr. Car lson will be glad to explain the aeronef." "1 wun't put a cent in it!" said : Mr. Waddy. Carson's heart sank; the un expected affluence of Mr. Waddy , had bred faith in Craighead's fi ; nanoial plans, "Certainly not," replied Craig head, as if Mr. Waddy's refusal was the most natural tiling In the world, "until you have ciphered the thing down to brass nails. And then but tell Mr. Waddy about it, Mr Carson. You need not enter into the offers of the millions wei ( have had. and spurned just de-, ! scribe the machine." Carson switched on tho lights, ; and they gathered about the table.' The boy talked slowly at first — ! but as the theme grew the others , hail the rare experience of hearing] la man discourse upon the thing" which dominated an intense and repressed life, it was complex— much of it too technical for Mr. Waddy—though familiarity with, concrete things of his practical i career had made him acute. Once in a while he interjected a question which evinced intelligent compre hension of the heart of Carson* explanation, The boy explained that his aeronef differed from all others, in having wings like a bird's; which did not flap, like t those of the absurd orthopters, and yet used half their surface in beat ing the air, with a straight thrust like that of an oar in the water. I "Don't yeh use screws?" asked Waddy at this point. "Not at all," answered Carson. "The screw can never be effective, because it strikes with a slant. It will do In water, but air requires a more effective thrust. When your propeller blade moves at a hun dred miles an hour, say, you have , v lift of thirty pounds to the square i foot of surface —with tho direct stroke. Hut the surface screw—" "Now, how d'ye figger that?" ' asked Mr. Waddy. Carson repeated laboriously; showed how, in his new wing, the whole surface revolved in sections ; striking straight against the air. Waddy nodded. "Why," said Carson, "I can lift weights that none of the other ships can stir, and fly off like an eagle with a fish!" Mr. Waddy nodded hts head now, Instead of shaking it. Theodore's enthusiasm was infecting him. Craighead, out of the running, stood over them, peering silently at the drawings formed by the boy's pencil. Mr. Waddy was get ting a grip upon the principles. The wing-blades were really long feath ering wheels, the slant of which, by a now application of old prin ciples, was under perfect control, so as to lift directly upward, to drive obliquely in any direction. The farmer-banker and the invent or were so absorbed that they scarcely noticed the entrance of a messenger from the Institute with a message from Mr. O'Grady, ask ing if Mr. Craighead would step outside for a moment, nor Craig head's withdraway and return. "The direction of the blow of the propellor," said Carson, "is under perfect control. A bird's wing isn't. This is a better wing than an eagle's." "Kin you raise right straight up," asked Waddy, "without running along like a buzzara?' "I sure can," replied Carson, fall ing into dialect. "No bird can do that no big bird. It's a better, stronger flier than any bird. The best any other machine can do Is to support four pounds to the square foot of surface; with my new motors, I can fly off with five times that; and I've got four times their bearing surface! I can carry mail and express at a profit, or passengers that can afford it. I can hover over a ship with good heavy torpedoes and sink her, and I overtake any vessel that floats. I can " 0 "What kind of motors you got?" Interrupted Waddy. Carson went into details of cylinders, weight per H. P., revolu tions per minute, fuel necessities, and the like, in the midst of which j Craighead returned, secured Car son's signature to some document, of the nature of which the boy was quite ignorant, went out and ire-entered whistling. The old man looked through his eyebrows, '■yvhlskers and mustaches at Carson and the drawings. 0 "What if your engines stop?" he asked. "When you're a mile l;igh and over water, mebbe?" - "I can soar," answered Carson. "I can make headway and gain j height with no power, if there's a iwind—and I can stay up for hours, I twith the propellers set for aero-[ ! planes. But the best thing I haven't mentioned —the gyroscopic balancing device." "What's that?" asked Mr. Wad dy. "Why. it's the successful appli cation of the gyroscope to avia tion." "They used to talk about that," observed Mr. Waddy, "long ago— tbe Hrennan single-rail roads —I thought it turned out that the gyroscopes was too heavy f'r air work." "They are too heavy," cried Theodore, "if you use them to do the balancing—that's sure. And so we have to balance by feeling, just as we do a bicycle. Thought isn't quick enough, so you have to rely on feeling, as a bird does. Itut I use little gyroscopes, not to control by their weight and stress, but to distribute power to the wings and rudders, positive, auto matic distribution of power. Why, if the engineer of my machine should fall dead, it would fly on 1 just as he set it, until the fuel was exhausted. It feels and thinks." The three men sat looking at one another, so far oblivious of their surroundings that they did not notice the opening of the door, nor see the woman who entered. "Papa!" she said. Mr. Waddy rose hastily and faced her. She was rather young, rosy, and q<ulte too jolly-looking l for her half mourning, which she , filled to a smoothness that showed I marvelous adaptation of fabrics to j curves. She looked like Mr. Wad idy but was undeniably pretty. He was blocky and short; she, round and plump, with small hands and feet. His eyes, lost iv huge brows, seemed small and deep-set; hers were wide, with a glimmer of good fun in them. His face was a hirsute jungle, growing all ways a well kept beard should not; her cheeks were smooth and pink, her lips were red. and the Waddy an | archy of hair gave her coiffure a ' charming tousled and crinkly dis order which would have convicted a small girl of naughtiness. The turned up pug nose of Mr. Waddy was modified to a delightful little retrousse effect in her. An ap parent effort on her part to bo stern and formal was mitigated by I smears of dust on face and hands, and a slight trace of panting aud beat, as if she had been exerting herself. . "Papa," said she, "this is hardly H place In which to entertain these gentlemen, We have cleared out the east parlor." 1 "Oh, yes!" assented Mr. Waddy, with feverish haste. "To be sure, [(Caroline! 'Hike 'en In, won't you? I've got to see the hired man' My (daughter, Mrs. Graybill. Mr. Craig [ihead; Caroline, a--a friend of mine, Mr. Carson, of Alabama. Ex cuse me for a minute, gentlemen!" "I assure you, Mrs. Graybill," Ugtd Mr. Craighead, "that when 1 say we are delighted, we mean the 'word In its descriptive sense, rath er than Its conventional nonsense." Oh. thank you!" replied Mrs. OraybtU, looking about the den. | This is an unfavorable looking place for conventionalities." "Finding you here." went on Mr. I Craighead, as they entered the par ! lor, "Is discovering an unexpected I rose in a patch devoted to the harmless and unornamental cautl flower, a delight all the more dau gerOUl to a sensitive organism be cause of its suddenness." 'Ob, 1 dare say you'll recover — a great many people have. And we'll strengthen that sensitive or- I gajttan with supper." "And thus iucrcase the pleasur able strain! Theodore, it looks de liriously dangerous!-" "And T may as well explain about the condition of this house," she went on. "Papa is reverting to type, that's all." "Ah, yes!" replied Craighead. "I see!" "No, you don't" protetrted Mrs. Orayblll, "though It's polite to say so. When I say reverting to type, I don't mean printing, or anything like that. He's going back to the ways of his youth, and the youths of his progenitors. I dare say we shall all trend to do the same at his age, don't you think so, Mr. Carson?" Theodore bashfully answered that he had never thought of it. Craighead quoted the melancholy Jacques on second childhood but denied the application to Mr. Wad dy. "Oh. I don't mean that," said Mrs. Graybill. "But pap got rich and we imposed on him gradually a life unlike that in which he was nurtured. Now, he elopes when he can, and sets up establishments with seed corn, and cream separ ators, and cows and harrows on the lawn, and works at any job he can find, and enjoys drawing wages more than anything, except teaching calves to drink. It's cruel of me to come and break up the idyl; but it's so absurd!" "If that be cruelty," said Craig head, "then —to coin an expression, martyrdom for mine!" "Supper," said she, smiling, "will be served very soon." The long dining room was gloomy with decayed gentility— black beams, dark wainscoting, and a broad plate rail bearing wrenches, clevises, oil cans, and baskets of eggs labeled as to breeds and dates. During the meal Craighead came out amazingly in his encounters with Mrs. Graybill, to whom as it seemed to Theodore, he was making violent love. Mr. Waddy, deaf to the badinage which screened this courtship, sat burled in thought, save when he question ed Carson concerning the aeronef, and was answered in occasional outbursts of eloquence during which Mrs. Graybill ignored Craig head and watched Theodore ab sorbedly. "There's no cinch in It,' said Mr. Waddy, "no monopoly; an' as soon as it's public, everbody'il build 'em. I do business on cinches." "Oh, but the patents, Mr. Wad dy!" chied Craighead. "You for get the patents." "They expire in a few years," said Mr. Waddy, "an' then where are yeh? Land, now —that I made my money in—land's an eternal cinch." "Mr. Waddy." said Craighead, "this matter of securing exclusive control of the air Is a part of our plans. It is one of my specialties. The law affords ample justfication for the assurance, which I here and now give you, that that will be attended to. Our present task lies with the uncompleted aeronef down by the shore of the blue gulf; to get the motors into her and start business." Carson was amazed, for he would have wagered that Craighead had never before though of any mon opoly except the patents; yet here he was, assuring Mr. Waddy of ex clusive aerial dominion. Mr. Wad dy grunted as if lightly impressed; as, no doubt, he was. "How long will it take you," said he, "to kind of draw out your plan for clenchin' the control of the air, legally?" "Oh, a very brief time," said Craighead. "I have Installed a fine law library in my apartments, so the consultation of authorities will be easy; but —-" "Well," interrupted Mr. Waddy, "if you can have that done by the time Mr. Carson can go where his machine is, put it in shape an' fly back, it'll do. When he lights in the front yard, an' you bring me a good law proof monopoly, I'll go in with yeh; but he's got to fetch a letter from Mobile, within 24 hours o' the time it's stamped there. I'm from Missouri! What say?" "Done!" cried Craighead. "You huve bought something!" Theodore was trembling with the fear that they were throwing away their chance by reckless impossible undertakings. Mrs. Graybill saw him grow pale and swallow hard, as if choking, and her eyes grew soft. "Before we call It a bargain," said Theodore, "I should like a word with Mr. Craighead, If you will excuse us." "Certainly," said she. "1 should recommend careful consultation." Craighead faced Carson inquir ingly, as they found themselves alone in the hall. "Something rising in your throat?" he queired. "Frost form ing on your boots? No yellow stripe up your back is there? Come, let's reel in and give him the gaff!" "1 wish to explain," said Theo dore, "that I —l can't pay the charges on the motors; 1 can't get them down to the beach. So how can we accept Mr. Waddy's offer?" "Gad, cuunel." exclaimed Craig head. "I'm glad you told me in pri vate, instead of disclosing our pe cunlousness to His Waddiness. But have no fear! You carry Caesar and his fortunes. I have the fund for the motors." Craighead drew from his pocket a roll of bills, the outer one of rather startling magnitude. "Fees," said Craighead. "Dam ages, actual and exemplary. I've settled the case of Carson vs. The Slattery Institute. Fair sir, we have a swollen fortune." "What do you mean?" asked Car son. "I mean," said Craighead, "that We Give Instead of Receive on OUR BIRTHDAY See Fashion Shop Windows So. 7 Howard Street TWO LIVELY BALL GAMES AT Navarre will likely pitch for the Brownlees in their match with the Varneys in the second game at N'atatorium park this afternoon, and Gale will be seen working be hind tho bat.

Hazelwoods versus the Dodds will lock horns in the opening at this roll of tainted money Is our loot of the emporium. Wit well, that I soaked them plenty," "But I can't allow this!" cried j Theodore. "It's already allowed," answered Craighead, with an air of perfect innocence. "Come, callow sir, we can't begin now the ruinous policy of scrutinizing the sources of our supplies. We can endow a college later, and that —What are you do ing?" Carson was cramming the bills into his pocket. "Going back to Waddy," said he. Come on." "Ay, ay, sir," said Craighead, his hand to his forelock. "But I warns you, Capting, that there's brokers dead ahead and on both bows, and that Craighead's the only pilot as knows these waters. But here's with you, if it's to Davy Jones'" "Mr. Waddy," said Theodore, walking up to him and looking him in the face, "before accepting your offer, I must make sure that I can fulfill my part of it. I must lnstal the motors in the aeronef. There are some financial arrangements to be made. It may be some weeks—" "I'll let you have what money you need," said Mr. Waddy. "I know how it gin'ly is with these here geniuses." Theodore grasped the old man's hands, his face flushed with joy. "I accept your advances with pleasure," said he. "And within 60 days, I shall be here with the aeronef." "As certain," said Craighead, "as the world turns over 60 times on its shafting. Got your order, Mr. Waddy!" As they took their departure, Mrs. Graybill drew them aside as for a private conference. "Mr. Carson," said she, "do you know that papa is a dreadfully good business man?" "I am quite sure of it," said Car son. "Do you think that you and Mr. Craighead are quite able to cope with him where business is busi ness?" "Fear not," said Craighead, "Col onel Carson has an adviser in me." Mrs. Graybill laughed merrily. "I had that in mind," said she. "I believe in you, Mr. Carson. I believe in your machine. And I believe fully in papa and his busi ness ability." "Mrs. Graybill," said Theodore, "we can do no better In these days of big business, than to trust to a man who has the honor to be your father." "That was a great hit you made with the fair princess," said Craig head, as they went to their room. "You're a wonder, Sir Theodore. I didn't think you had it in you. Hanged if you haven's got me hyp notized into the belief that you've got some sort of a rickety flying machine down there! Why, we'll make a killing here that will put the beef trust into second place. And something tells me jthat Mrs. Graybill will be in it. My heart is my weak point. She's touched it. Ah, the ladies, the ladies! They're a specialty of mine!" "I should say," said Theodore, "that you had better make a special ty of your plan for a monopoly of aerial navigation. I had no idea that you knew any such secret." "No more had I, son," said Craighead. "But think how mean and picayunish it would have been to refuse a promise at the psycho logical moment. Faugh!" "But you told Mr. Waddy—" "That is a specialty of mine," supplied Craighead. "Certainly, I wanted to keep the psychic fluid flowing. While you are on your way to the more or less mythical spot where your fabulous airship does or does not exist, I'll take a |9W moments some day and figure it out. Don't worry about the monop oly end of the deal. That's mere deviltry, and in derogation of the common good, and, therefore easy. But you've got to bring forth actu alities. Be calm about me, old scout, and look to yourself." After retiring they lay awake ex changing remarks and suggestions across the dark room. "Oh, about the money," said Car son. "I must return it to Dr. Witherspoon, Craighead. You won t misunderstand me, will you?" (Continued Tomorrow.) "SUMMER TOURIST" ROUND TRIP TICKETS NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILWAY YOU CAN BUY NOW.

LEGISLATURE BOUGHT at the close of the session In which Lorimer was chosen senator. Fol lowing Swiftly on these charges came recriminations from the ac cuused men and their friends. Senator Lorimer characterized White's charges as a lie. Browne came to Chicago and issued a red hot statement denouncing Whlte'a charges as false from start to finish and branding White himself as ir responsible. Browne admitted that he had loaned money to White In small sums, but denied absolutely that he had ever attempted to In fluence his vote, or the vote of any other legislator. Chicago fairly seethed with ex citement tonight. Late this after noon Senator Lorimer called a meeting of his closest lieutenants and this was held behind closed doors this evening. Many poli ticians tonight declare the charges will cause a sweeping realignment of republican forces in Illinois. Meanwhile the Chicago Tribune, which first published the charges, has promised a new sensation and the whole state is on the tip toe of expectancy, waiting to see where the lightning will strike next.
