The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet
'- By SIR ARTHUR COUAX DOTLE.
Copyright 1921, by Harper & Bro. Published by special arrangement
with The MeClure Newspaper Syndicate.
(Continued.)
"Seeing that my client -was anxious
to leave, I said no more; but, calling
for my cashier, I ordered him to pay
over fifty 1,000 notes. When I was
alone once more, however, with the
precious case lying upon the table in
front of me, I- could not but think
with, some misgivings of the immense
responsibility which it entailed upon
me. There could be no dossbt that,
as it was a national possession, a
horrible scandal would ensue if any
.-nnLiafortune should occur to it. I al
seitiid to take charge of it. How
ever, it was too lat to alter the mat
tar now, so I locked it up in my
private safe, and turned once more
' to my work.
"When evening came I felt that it
would be an imprudence to leave so
precious a thing in the office behind
ae. Bankers' safes had been forced
Vafore now, and why should not
mine bo? If so. how terrible would
be the position in which I should find
myself! I determined, therefore, that
tfor the next few days I would always
carry the case backward and forward
with me, so that it might never toe
really out of my reach. With this
intention, I called a cab, and drove
out to my house at Streatham, car
rying the jewel with me. I did not
breathe freely until I had taken it
upstairs and locked it in the bureau
of my dressing room.
"And now a word as to my house
hold, Mr. Holmes, for I wish you to
thoroughly understand the situation.
My groom and my page sleep out of
the house, and may be set aside alto
gether. I have three maid servants
who have been with me a nunrrber of
years, and whose absolute reliability
is quite above suspicion. Another,
Irucy Parr, the second waiting maid,
has only been in my service a few
months. She came with an excellent
character, however, and has always
given me satisfaction. She is a very
Iretty girl, and has attracted admir
ers who have occasionally hung about
the place. That is the only draw
back which we have tfound to her,
fcut we believe her to be a thoroughly
good girl in every way.
"So much for the servants. My
family itself is so small that it will
not take me long to describe it. I
am a widower, and have an only
son, Arthur. He has been a disap
pointment to me, Mr. Holmes : a
grievous disappointment. I have no
' doubt that I am myself to blame.
People tell me that I have spoiled
. him. Very likely I have. When my
dear wife died i felt that he was all
I had to love. I could not bear to
see the smile fade even for a moment
from his rface. I have never denied
ihm a wish. Perhaps it would have
been better for both of us had I
been sterner, but I meant it for the
best.
"It "was naturally my intention that
he should succeed me in my business,
but he was not of a business turn.
He was wild, wayward, and, to speak
the truth, I could not trust him in
the handling of large sums of
money. When he was young he he
came a member of an aristocratic
club, and there, having charming
, manners, he was soon "the intimate of
' a number of men with long purse
And expensive habits. He learned
to play heavily at cards and to squan
der money on the tun, until he had
again and again to come to me and
implore me to give him an advance
upon his allowance, that he might
settle his debts of honor. He tried
more than once to break away from
the dangerous company which he
was keeping, but each time the influ
ence of his friend. Sir George Burn
well, was enough to draw him back,
again.
"And, indeed, I could not. wonder
that such a man as Sir George Burn
well should gain an influence over
him, for he has frequently brought
him to my house, and I have found
myself that I could hardly resist the
fascination of his manner-. He is
older than Arthur, a man of he
world to his finger-tips, one who had
heen everywhere, seen everything, a
brilliant talker, and a man of great
personal beauty. Yet when I think
of him in cold blood, far away from
the glamor of his presence, I am con
vinced from h-ig cynical speech, and
the look which I have caught in his
eyes, that he is one who should be
deeply distrusted. So I "think, and
so, too, thinks my little Mary, who
has a woman's quick insight into
character.
"And now there is only she to be
described. She is my niece; but
when my brother died five years ago
and left her alone In the world I
adopted her, and have looked opon
her ever since as my daughter. 'She
is a sunbeam In my house sweet.
loving, beautiful, a wonderful man
ager and housekeeper, ypt as tender
and quiet and gentle as a woman
could be. She is my right hand. I
do not know what I could do with
out her. In only one matter has
she ever gone against my wishes.
Twice my boy has asked her to mar
ry him. for he loves her devotedly,
but each time she has refused him.
I think that if any one could have
drawn him into the right path It
would have been she, and that his
marriage might have changed his

POM'S
Claire Whitney, the-morion picture
star and Robert Emroett Keane the
Broadway comedian dose their en
gagement today in "The Gossipy Sex."
Miss Whitney is very beautiful and
very talented. Mr. Keane is a light
comedian. "The Gossipy Sex" is the
best playlet that has been billed on
the Poli boards in years. The rest
of the Poli vaudeville bill is gresrt in
cluding the laughing-gas offering of
Billy "Sweede" Hall which is a riot
of comedy.
Sunday night "What's Worth
While" opens a four day engagement
at Poli's. This is a Paramount pic
ture with a message that grips you
like a vise. The love story in it
shows how circuitous love affairs are
but it leaves the reputation of love
itself untouched.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,
Frisco, the Great , Frisco, the Match
less, Frisco the incomparable and in
imitable Frisco will appear in nerann
at Poli's heading the Supreme vaude
ville Dill. Frisco is the creator of
jazz dancing. Personally, he exem
plifies syncopation. He is as snappy
as me quicK movements or his lithe
body. Frisco has many Imitators but
not an equal In the world. He will
be assisted by Loretta McDermott and
Eddie Cox.
EMPIRE.
In "Cheated Love." Carmcl Wvm'
highly dramatic Universal nhntoolnv
which 4s now showing at the Empire
m-eau-e, playgoers will see one of the
most noted emotional stars of the
Parisian speaking stage as she ap
pears in support of Miss Myers.
She is Madame Rose Dione. who
holds a place of affection in the
hearts of Parisian playgoers second
only to that held by Madame Sarah
Bernhardt.
Madame done was the featured
star of the Cornells Francaise at the
outbreak of the war. In the tense
hour when the German armies were
battering at the gates of Paris, she
appearea in a iamoii3 cafe, wrapped
the tn-color around her statuesque
iorm ana sang la JUarseilaise" while
thousands of young men took the
oath as soldiers of France. For the
duration of the war she abandoned
her theatrical work and devoted her
entire time to alleviating the suffering
of the wounded and in entertaining
the troops at -the rest billets. By a
special dispensation from the French
High Command she was allowed to
accompany troops going . up toward
the front and did heroic work in
keeping up the morale in the early
stages of the war when the national
integrity of France was menaced by
the Hun.
Arriving in America shortly after
the armistice was signed. Madame
Dione entered the realm of the silent
drama. She. recently played an im
portant role in "The Four Horsemen
of the Apocalypse.

This year an extra day for which no
charge is made has been added to the

Sunday and the entire program for
the day will be arranged by and in
charge of the local committee.
Strickland Gillian, Americas fore
most humorist author of the famous
line "Off Agin, On Agin, Gone Agin,
Finnigin," speaks the fourth night of
the Chautauqua. He calls his evening
of smiles "Just Between Ourselves."
He is well known in Europe and
America as a humorous lecturer and
also through his numerous stories and
publications. Another speaker equal
ly well known is Sherman iogers, tne
Billy Sunday of the industrial world.
His stirring articles have appeared
many times in the Saturday Evening
Post and the Outlook and his talks
before labor unions and other gath
erings of capital have been well re
ceived. He will speak on the second
lay.
One of the most interesting fea
tures of the entertainment will be
the Arion entertainers. These all star
entertainers include Miss Anne Var
ner Barker who is a clever chalk talk
artist, clay modeler, ventriloquist,
character impersonator and origina- !
.or of a dsitinct novelty, "The .
4-nimated Doll." Master Winslow j
Honroe House, a wonderful boy so- j
arano from Trinity church, Boston,
is also with the company. Iiss Pearl
3onser, harpist and pianist and Miss
Charlotte de Volt, a concert violinist,
vill also add her charms to the enter
ainment by the Arions which takes
place twice on the second day.
"Mother Lake," as she is called is
a wonderful mother with a big heart
and an understanding soul. Her
words, her presence, and her, spirit
are an inspiration to old and young.
She will lecture on the fifth day on
"The Divine Right of a Child." Her
influeno has helped to make better
parents of better children.
The International Concert party is
going to furnish concerts consists of
gems from the most popular operas
on the fourth day. The party is com
posed of four artists. Miss Etta S.
Bradley, of Boston, dramatic soprano;
Ben Redden, also of Boston, operatic
tenorffl Harry D. Newcomb, Canadian
bariton, of All Saints Cathedral at
Halifax, Nova Scotia; and William
V J
Haddon, the eminent Swedish concert
pianist.
Fresh from college the Syracuse
Varsity Quartet made up of four of
the most talented members of the
Syracuse University Glee Club will
entertain with college songs sung in
the college manner around the camp
fire with banjo interludes. The quar
tet is composed of John A. Carey, bar
itone, once of the famous 168th In
fantry quartet ; Vincent V.Rogers, sec
ond hass; J. Sherman Schoonmaker,
second tenor and pianist; and D. W.
Murphy, tenor and manager.
The Chautauqua will also include
several Indian numbers which will
consist of a story by Chief Tahan
called "Up From Savagery," several
selections of Indian music by Prin
cess Nacomee company. The Indian
part of the program takes place on
the sixth day. The New Englanders,
a group of three young artists, will
vie with their Indian sisters in a pro
gram of great interest.
"Brush, the great," the clever magi
cian, will give a wonderful perform
ance on the third day and when it is
all over the audience will not know
any more than when he started ex
cept that they enjoyed his mystifying
entertainment. Perhaps the number
which will interest the people more
than any other is the drama to be
presented on the fifth day by a cast
of popular players on Broadway.
"The Cinderella Man" has been used
both as a play and & movie and has
been a success in both fields.
Mrs. Charles H. Armstrong of 20
Brooklawn avenue will be the hostess
at the first social meeting of the Au
thors" club to be held on Friday af
ternoon. October 7th at 4 o'clock. On

the members have chosen for their
motto, "The centuries as they pass
will ripen trvise sons of the North
and they will enter into the concert
of the peoples in some other capacity
than as a menace or a dissonance..
They have only to transform their
hardness into strength, their cunning
into grace, their Muscovitism into hu
manity, to win love instead of inspir
ing aversion or fear.
Under the "heading of' "Collect for
Club Women," is the following in
vocation: "Keep us O God, from pet
tiness; Let us be large in thought,
in word, in deed: Let us be done with
fault-finding, and leave off self-seek
ing; May we put away all pretense
and meet each other face to face
without self-pity and without preju
dice; May we never be hasty in judg
ment, and always generous; teach us
to put into action our better im
pulses, straightforward and unafraid:
Let us take time for all things; make
us grow calm, serene and gentle;
Grant that we may realize it is the
little tftings that create differences?
that in the big things of life we are
as one; And may we strive to touch
and to know the great common wom
an s heart of us all and O Lord God
let us not forget to be kind. Amen."

noon rrom I our o clock until five-

New York, Aug. 6 The sizzling
summer of 1921 has made all New
York want to go a-swimming but
there isn't room enough for all to
swim.
On week-ends it's a strong man
who can battle into bath-Bouses at
nearby beaches and even if there were
more bathhouses, it's hard to imagine
how many more thousands could gain
foothold on the crowdej sands.
So, from City Hall down, everyone,
is trying to locate' new swimming
holes and a twentieth. century swim
ming hole in America's largest city
is a costly proposition. Mayor Hylan
has urged construction of a swimming
pool in Central Park and it has been
suggested than an unneeded reservoir
be converted to the use of a perspir
ing citizenry, . but at present it's all ,
talk, and talk is even more heating.
Meanwhile special shower baths
have been built in tenement district,
street cleaners hosing heated pave
ments wash down youngsters for the'
asking, and in the smaller parks dot
ting the city the police aren't quite
so zealous in driving amphibious
street urchins out of the fountains.'
Th world's largst swimming pool
has .been opened in Madison Square
Garden, dock-df 'ng along the Hud
son, Harlem a i East Rivers is as
popular as ever, and now and then a
neighborhood produces something
unique in the way of a bathing tub.
For instance the firemen at the
Greenwich Village station house have
built a wooden pool for the neigh
borhood youngsters, and artists and
poets of the section lay aside palette
and pen every day to watch a young
woman instruct her splashing pupils
there.
