" You Can Begin This Great Story To-day by Reading This First Prof Croshy, on his way to visit a friend In the country, meets Mis T&"?or, whom ho had met at a Christmas niuse party the winter before. An accident to the trolley tar leaves them stranded near tne. Tabor home, where they arc mad welcome, but under peculiar conditions. During the night Crosby Is asktd to leave the houre. Miss Tabor saying goodbye to htm and requiting him not to call again. At the Inn he learns that Tabor Is concerned In some way with a burly ItallHn, named C'ariiccl. hen he goes in to his friend's home, he finds Miss Tabor aUo a guest there, and Just as they nre setting on well tneether, she Is taken away by Dr. Reld. whom Crosby after warns learns 1a a, brother-in-law of Miss TaDor, having wedded' her sister Miriam, who Is now dead. The mystery of iho Tabor household Is Increased, tho'igh. when Croaby sets a hasty call to go with Miss Tabor on a mysterious mission to the city, where he rescues Mrs. Carucct, who Is b'hella. Miss Tabor's nurse, fro.u the effect of a brutal attack by her hud band Plans are laid to get rid of tho Italian, by sending him out of the coun try, to relieve Sirs. Tabor of his presence. Mr. Tabor tells Crosby his wife has never been quite well since the death of her daughter. Maclean, a newspaper reporter, aids Crosby In gaining admission to a spiritualistic stance, where the dead Daughter la supposed to be "material lic3.'' After tne seance Crosby discovers Dr. Reld and n tttranger drugging CarUc cl. intending to have him ' shanghaied'' aboard and outgoing steamer. He mak.es an enemy of Reld by Interfering. A call comfs from Tabor, telling him that Mrs. Tabor, has suddenly gone alone to the city, and taking Crosby to look aftjr her. He succeeds In locating her, and wit nesses a strange Interview between Mrs. Tabor and a man who turns out to be Dr. Paulus, a celebrated alienist. Crosby end Sheila get Mrs. Tabor back home, and there Crosby meets Miss Tabor for an Interview that promises to lead to the clearing up of the mystery. They con less their mutual love, and agree to work together for Mrs. Tabor's recovery. Crosby meets Dr. Reld, and they, nettle down for an explanation. After discuss ing the situation fully, Crosby returns to the city, where he meets McLean, and together they go to attend another seance, where they encounter Mrs. Tabor. The usual phenomena are presented table-lifting and the like, and then the '"spirit" of "Miriam" appears again, and Mrs. Tabor questions It. In the midst of proceedings Crosby switches on the lights and Mrs. Tabor faints. Tho medium Is furious, but Crosby calls his bluff, and has Mrs. Tabor cared for, when Mr. Tabor appears. Ho takes Mrs.. Tabor home, while Crosby goes to consillt' wjth' p. Paulus; to determine If the nature of Mrs. Tabor's hallucination Is such as leaves' any hope for cure. CHAPTER XIV. The Consultation of an Expert and n I.nymnn. (Continued.) The train was pulling Into' Stamford as he ended,' and It was not until the wait ing automobile had carried up nearly to tho house that Dr, Paulus spoke again. "I think," he said, "that possibly, I say possibly, Mr. Crosby, you have made a. valuable discovery. At least we know now Ihe circumstances better. But on the one hand thcto visits to seances may be aggravating cause of the unbalance ment, and on the other mere results of unnatural cravings in the unbalanced mind. It Is a circle, and we Feel the slenderest point where it may be broken." Mr. Tabor met us at the door, and as we came up the steps Reld slipped eagerly past him. "Splendid:" he exclaimed, wringing the gicat man's hand. "Splendid! Hoped It would be this train, but I hardly dared think so. I know how Important your time Is. Very good of you to- come out, very good Indeed. Now as to the case; manifestations unfortunately very clear just now. Very unfortunate, but I'm afraid we havo been right all along. Come out to my rooms a moment, and I'll give you the whole matter In detail. Better to run over the whole thing scientifically- ' Dr Paulus,, smiled at me dryly: "I shall be most happy," ho shrilled, and after a formHl word or two with Sir. Tabor, stalked soberly around the house. Mr Tabor and I went Into the living room without speaking. "Has Lady told you r' I began. He nodded. "I hardly know what to say to you, Crosby.

It Is useless to attempt to convert a worn-out complexion Into- a new one. The rational procedure is to remove the complexion Instead remove the devitalized cuticle.

Father and daughter evidently understood each other.. . sat almost In silence until Iho two! doctors .returned, Paulus frowning down ward, and Reld more perkily busy than ever. The scene had the air of a delib erate family council. "Mr. Tabor," Dr. Paulus began, "I havo thought better not to disturb our patient by an interview just now, since she is asleep after so long a wakefulness. Dr. Reld besides has mad?, the condition's very clear. Only on one point he has not been able to Inform me wholly: It ap pears that lrs. Tabor has attended- meet ings of spjrituallsts habitually in secret, which "accounts for those excursions of which we know lately. How long ngo niav we nosslblv date the commencement jof this practice?" I "She was Interested In spiritualism carelessly and as a sort of fad before Miriam's marriage," Mr. Tabor answered, "hut so far as I know, she never actually attended any sittings then; and she hasn't spoken of It for years. She might, of course, hae kept It secret all along; It's only within tho last few months that we have tried to follow all her move ments." Dr, Paulus settled heavily Into a chair, and fell to drumming on the arm of It. t Lady stood beside her father, her arm resting upon his shoulder: and Reld paced nervously up and down .the room, A chirp and a rustle made; me notice the canary hanging In tho farther window. Finally Paulus looked up. "Do you prefer to have my opinion In private?" he asked, Mr. Tabor t was looking older than 1 had ever seen him. "Your opinion means a great deal to all of ns, doctor," he said. Raid stopped a moment In his pacing. ' Well, my opinion Is not quite positive, because I have not certainly all the facts.' That Is tho fault with all our. opinions, that we never can base them upon yholly complete data. Mrs. Tabor we have thought Insane, and there was much to bear that out. S6 If I had'beon certain that all her Illusions proceeded from within her own mind, I should have said that It was surely so. But now Mr. Crosby makes known to us this external suggestion of .spirits, with the continual remlndlngof her trouble and the un natural strain. He ' argues also and I am not at all certain but that he argues rightly that this practice, this superstl- ! tlon of hers, may be the cause of her deterioration, so that by removing it she wilt grow better or perhaps well. . It Is so far clear?" "Quite so. exactly," Reld broke In. "Perfectly clear, doctor, perfectl. But why pot effect rather than came an other symptom, that's all. Fixed Idea, unnatural craving for communication with the other world, because the mind is unbalanced by loss." "I think that is to place the horse after tho wagon, as we say. It Is certainly a. vicious circle, but till" ' Precisely," exclaimed Reld, "but the Impulse comes" Dr. Paulus held up a white hand. "Walt fu little. I do not come to con clusions hastily. Now I conclude that Mrs. Tabor Is thus far no more than hysterical, and what we have to do Is first to remove entirely from her this superstitious Influence." Tho ahrllPvolce took suddenly a sharper edge. "More over. Rr. Reld, I will say to you that only two other men In the world know more than I know of 'my specialty, and of those unfortunately neither one Is here." He waited until Reld subsided Into a scat, then went slowly on. "Now From tho Paris Shops. the question is how this harmful belief is to.be removed, and that' Is tho difficult matter." "If she were In a sanltorium " Reld began. "She'd worry herself to pieces," Lady Interrupted; and Dr. Paulus nodded heally. "She'd fcl imprisoned, and imagine and brood' and worry, and the atmosphere of Impersonal restraint would mako her worse. Wo can, nt least help her to keep her mind off herself and mtke her cheerful " "We can prevent from -now on, I think, any further communications." said Mr. Tabor. ' But tho trouble's Inside hrr own mind," snapped Held; and tho shrill voice of his colleague added. "That is partly true, so far a she has now hallucinations and recreates her own harm. Suppose then we hijld her from seeking harm elsewhere, that Is some thing; but still even so she feels re straint, and still her misbelief goes on, If wn could reach tint but how to make her not. thus believe '" He fell silent, and the white ham) began Its drumming aealn. I felt Irritably that he was the mof,t dellberato man in the world. Suddenly I foifnd lady'a eyes upon me. "I think Mr. Crosby bus something to suggest," she said, and with her words a suggestion came to me. Reld shorted. Dr. Paulus-smlled very gravely, "That busy mind of Mr. Crosby has before been useful," he said. "What it this Idea, then?" "It sounds pretty -wild and theatrical," said I. "but couldn't we reach the root of tho trouble hy making tho cure come from the same rource? Wc might tell her for ever that her Ideas wero false and harmful, und she'd only feel that we were profane. But If the medium herself denied them these visions and voices must be ot least partly a fake. Now. if we can persuade or force her to show Mis. Tabor how It's done and I think I know how to exert pressure upon her then might not the Illusion be dispelled once, for all? I mean, whether Mrs. Mahl Is a fake or not. can't she bo made to undo the work she has done, and dis credit the dangerous belief she has taught?" Mr. Tabor was leaning forward In his chair as I finished. Reld was walking the floor again and shrugging his shoul ders; and Lady was looking at me with eyes of absolute belief. "Fake?" asked Dr. Paulus unexpect edly. "Pham, trick, fraud," I explained, and he nodded frowning. "Oh, but this whole thing's absurd," Reld put In. "Crosby's a good fellow and clever, and all that, but lie's a layman and this Is a complicated problem. It's all one If after another. If the woman's willing to expose herself, and If she does It well, and If mother believes her, and If all this would have anything to do with the cae. Besides It would be a shock, a violent shock, a dangerous shock. No sense at all in Jt. Melodrama isn't modlolne." "1 am not so fcure," said Dr. Paulus. "It is unusual and what you call theatri cal, but my work Is unusual and many times theatrical alto. I have need to act much of thu time with my patients. With the individual mind .one must use each time an Individual cure. This at least strikes at the cause of the trouble, and might succeed. With your permission, Mi Tabor, we will try It " ITo Be Continued Tomorrow.) The Manicure Lady By WILLIAM K. KIRK. "Oec! I guess this Is ns hot a day ns we arc going to have nil summer,'' sail the Manicure Lady, getting in line wl'.h one of tho electric fans. "I didn't think we was duo for this kind of a day so early In the season, but ns them old Romans used to say, "Sic Semper Nux Vomica,' ' which means something like 'you never can tell.' It's hard to breathe, even. "I supppae the. song writers will he getting busy now with a new crop of summer songs, nil about hs beaches and the sea waves and the summer moon. Wilfred says ho Is going to put over two or three summer hits, but as he ain't started (n write nny of them yet, we ain't taking him very seriously. He tu wrote a little poem, though, about tho warm weather. He wrote It yesterday when he came homo with prickly heat .ill over His forehead. It goes like this: " 'Tho Rummer heat Is coming now. To make the city people sigh; There is a rash upon hy brow", Which prove! that the , dog days are quite nigh. Be careful what you eat and drink In these hot day of torrid summer. Or the heat will piit ypu op the bilnk, As It one put me on the hummer. I hovered long 'twlxt life and death, And once the doctor feared dlsolu.tton.' But stronger each day ' I drew my breath. Thanks to a very strong constitution.' "1 thought you always said your brother wnsn't strong," said the Head Barber. "He ain't." eald the Manicure Lady "That's some more of , his poetry li cense. He wasn't very sick, either. He Just happened to get tangled up one day last summer with some of father's old friends, who thought ho oould trot tike the old gent, but he hadn't trailed along with them very long before they found 'out that he wasn't no chip off the ilrt block. They sent hint home.' In a cab In the middle of the afternoon, and he stayed In bed all the next day. He told mother that it was a kind of a sunstroke and I guess the poor kid kind of thought It was, but It was nothing except over drinking, and goodness knows any drink ing at all Is overdrinking for him." "It nln't much of a poem he wrote," said the Head Barber. "I didn't look for no prule from you when I read It to you," replied the Mani cure Lady. "As 1 have often told you. George, I don't lead my brother's poem to you for criticism, because you ain't no more critic than a hop-toad. I Just read them to get them off my mind, h. cause homehow when I have read one of them out loud I never think of it again. Vou ought to try that sometime, aorB.''. "I don't need tp try It with anything he ever wrote," 'said the Head Barber, "I wouldn't remember It, anyhow. 1 do not care for what io's wrote, so It ain't fair his stuff to quote. How is that for poetry?" "The limit," replied the Manicure Laqy. "I guess the hot weather has went to your head " By CMRRKTT P. SERV1SS.

A remarkable and Interesting cxam)e of this freedom of speculHtion In atronomy Is furnished hy Mr; Bcriven Bolton, an Kngllshmnn with a, plctorlnl imagination. On the, basis of a series of spectroscopic photograph! of the planets belonging to our solar system, made by Perclvnl Iowell at his, Arizona observatory, Mr. Bollon foundrf th theory, Illustrated by the pictures orj thl page, that' all, or nearly all, the planets arc more or less coverel with Alainanza, or Grit versus Dash By REV. THOMAS B. (SRKOORY. The battle of'AImanza, fought MT years ago, April 14, 1707. Is well worthy of a place among these little historical sketches. A few thousaridn of English a lid Dutchmen, with many thousands of Portuguese. wero attacked b an overwhelming num ber of Frenchmen and Spaniard un der of the duke of Berwick, and prac tlcall annihilated. Tho Portuguese, teeing the hopeless ness or tn wiua- Blftffiw tlon. ran aw'sy. but the Dutchand urn Ishen stood their ground and fought against the mighty odds till almost the last 'man of them was either captured or killed. It was a great French and Spanish "vic tory." and yet It showed th grit and moral courage on the part of the van quished, whleh were ultimately to give them the mastery of tho planet. Than this grim physical and moral cour age of the Teutonic breed of men 'there Is nothing subllmer In the whole range of our knowledge. From the day on which ''Hermann the Brave" ended the arrogant Roman rule of the F&thorland with hla master stroke In the Teutsburg forest, down to the present day. the Teuton man has never quailed before danger, or deserted his post when duty bade him remain. Of this unflinching courage, of this grandest of all forma of bravery the ln3KHRl vegetation, and that tfia quantity qt he vegetation Increases lyitU ha dlstunco from the qun, In presenting the evidence relied upon to maintain this novel theory a few Wprds muu bo devoted to an explanat-on of what is meant 'by n "spectroscopic j photograph" of a heavenly body. It Is" a photograph not of the planet, or star Itself, but of Its light, after that light hon been spread out by a spectroscope so us to show its peculiar compos'.tlon. Fancifully sp-aklng, It might be called a photograph of tho "aura" of the sthr or planet In quost'on. At any rate, It Is a kind of n photograph which reveals, an on ordinary ' one does, the Inner nature of Its subject. A hat &ucl photographs look like can bo seen In the pliture, 'where they urn cslled ' spectrogram-" ,Tha light ot our body examined Is spread out In a long band, and crossing this a' number .it dark lines appear. Theso are the tell tales which reveal the rpmposltlon of the otinosphrro of the planet from which the light comes. Taking the flvn- spectrograms shown, which represent, the. light from the Moon. Jupiter. Saturn, trranus and Neptune, you will sen that certain lines which aro very faint and thin, or altogetHv lack ing In tho case of the Moon, become gradually stronger In thq other four photographs. ,V slaneo at the large diagram- will' fchow that the Ftrrhgth ot j I bravery of the silent soul rend tfus I history In the story of the rise of the. .'Dutch republic; the building of the Ocr; man empire; the struggle for the mon kery of the North American continent; the fight for American Independence; the wonderful otruggle for tho preservation of the American union, and so on rlgnt up to the present moment- It Is to thesn sublime qualities, whl''h he has ever possessed to a greater ex i tent than nny other type of man, that tho Teuton owes he- masterful position that belongs to him today. It Is' on ac count of these qualities that he now holda pretty nearly all the strategic points on the glob and Is advancing, slonly. but surely, to the moral and ti. tellectual leadrrch'p of the. human ra?. There was n time, and a lqng time, too, , when he waa .small and weak, but heq attacked by hi big and powerful adver saries he stood hla ground, refvaed to be crushed, and finally, by his- dogged grit of body and jnlncl, won a place to stand on And then he began to reach out troni his murky home In South Germany t) Britain and from Britain tq North Arm erica, und from North America to Au. tralla, Houth Africa, and the Isles of the seaa-and today he has the controlling word In tho affairs of men on this planet, his Ideas and Institutions are rapidly growing, and unless some sort of miracle takes place. n another hundred yean he will hold the same position that was held In ancient times by the Roman, and from Washington, Ottawa, Berlin, Cape Town and Melbourne shall go forth tho laWa that will rule the world.

Chlorophyll posset'scs the mysterious power of en abl'ng a plant to utilize tho ouullght In building Itself up. Assuming that tho lines In tho photographs really are due to chlorophyll, the mferer.ee drawn Is that vegetation e.Mets upon the planets whose light Is rrodsed by these lines- The stronger the line, argues Mr. lTUton, tha greater the qtinntlty of vegetnblo Ufa upon the world under examination. Tho Moon possesses atmoct ndno; Jupi ter has a considerable amount; 'Saturn has more: franu.t abounds with plant life, and Neptune, the planet most distant from the sun, shows the lines so dark and broad that one may suppose that It Is an amazing tangle or .vegetation, a Veritable Dismal swamp of multitudinous plant life- i This theory is In direct contradiction to tho prevalent opinion of. astronomers; which is that tho four great planets Jupi ter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, are. as yet Incompleted, or only holt-cooled worlds, with surfaces that havo not had t m'n to solidify. But the question as to their artuol condition Is Mill an open one, and Mr. Bollon s picturesque hypothesis may take Its chances with tho .others until further discoveries have more com pletely enlightened us, ' Advice to the Lovelorn By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
