"He would h anil j dare to hurt us,"
remarked Mr. Hetherington    with a

"1 dropped a letter to my lawyers

��� with  avcVted  eyes;   "'that  was  good
and smart of you. Better come in and
1 rest  till  it's   time  to  start."
Mr. Hotheriugt"-- followed him into the interior of the house, but Hugh
remained on the small verandah,.looking, not at Noah Siddle's* aouse, but
at the chimp of .houses to the east,
aiid wondering where it was that Eira
stayed while she was Here, lie did
not like to think o- her living in the
midst of ail tnose negroes. Theiv was
one house just a little apart fi-om the
others. It had a porch on- which a
creeper grew, and l*e thought that its
garden seemed to liave ,-iuade and
brig.iter dowers tha-i the others. He
wondered if this was'' where Eira
lived, ancl while he was still looking
at it Eira he.self cane quietly-round
tho corner of the veiaadah where he
"Oh," she said, stopping but' evidently not recognizing him, "oh, good
'morning; is .Mr. Dodd back yet, do
you know?"
"Yes���yes," Hugh stammered, taken aback ut her sudden appear;'nee.
There was a lign1, in his eyes that
.she���could���not���Lei P���noticing,���and lie,
made a little invoiuntary movement
towards her.    She returned bis *lool;
surely as if you liad bean taken by
the hand?"
"No���why,* what do you mean?"
asked Hugh, uncomfortably remembering,that impression he had so -.f-
ten had of an unseen influence that
shepherded them upon tlieir way.
For answer Eira turned again and
looked at that odd stone house that
stood a little north and east of Dodd's
shanty.     Hugh   understood:
"But why?" he asked.   "What for?"
"Noah oiddle had a son," she answered, ."who was my father. Tliat
bad man, vho is your uncle, cheated
him out of the great invention he had
perfected after years of labor, anc
drove him to despair; 1 was only a
little child then, but I remember.
Well, my grandfather was working on
the same thing, but ho could not
succeed, and he asked me to . help
him to recover tho secret my father
had been robbed of, so that all the
world might know ��� what niy father
did, what he discovered, and how ho
was treated. 1 agreed willingly; and
by the help of friends I got ilrst of
all the, key to the cipher my futher
had hidden his secret in, and then tho
cipher itself."
"I see," said Hugh slowly. "I think
I more than half suspected all "this."
"1 warned you," she laid passionately, ,-l sent you warnings. Beforo
iCleft England I had a dream, ahd 1
thought 1 saw my grandfather sitting
planning something against you more
strange and terrible than anyone but
him could conceive. 1 warned you
again;  why did you not listen?"
"Because "    said      Hugh,    and
"Why did you ..come?" she asked
once more, with the same intense aud
agitated manner. "Why did :-qu come
in spite of -all my warnings?"
"Do you ask me'that?" he said,
looking full at her, and speaking with
an agitation of his own.
"I thought you were engaged to
Miss Hetherington; I thought she had
come here with you," said Eira scornfully.
"It doesn't matter if she has," said
Hugh flushed and sulky, and yet unable to defenui i.imself or to explain
that he did not believe h'is, engagement with Delia would ever be carried out.
"lt doesn't matter?" Eira 0 repeated. "I thought I hated you once, but
now 1 only despise you. I wonder
how it is men are 39 light?"
"I am not light!" said Hugh, very
angry indeed.        ���     "     **
"Oh. pray don't trouble \o defend
yourself," she st:id cuttingly. "1 think
I  understand  ycu  very  well."
"You '.'   began -Hugh,   but ,. she
checked him witli uplifted hand.
"All that does not matter in the
least," she said; "it is your being
here disguised as a negro that frightens me so. I never..heard of that; 1
don't understand why grandfather
wanted you to" Co that."
"But it wasn't, his idea at all," protested Hugh; '"it was  our own."    ,

Dodd, and took an envelope, from his
desk and handed it to him. "You can
go," he said.
Dodd stood for a moment as if hesitating, and there was something
strange in the look he gave at Mr.*
Hetherington and Hugh. Perhaps old
Mr. Siddie noticed this, for he pointed
to the door .with a gesture of impatience'' and command. Clutching last
the envelope the old man hau'given
him, Dodd left the room; yet once
again, on the very thresh AA, he paused to give his two recent companions
an ambiguous and yet eager look, a?
if there were something tha;-, even at
this last moment he would like to tell
them. But without speaking lie closed
tiie door and went, and they ���hear.- Ins

Dodd took his place and drove away

watched lilm for . few minutes till
tl.e immensity of the prairie had
swallowed him *.-.p, and then he turned to Hugh and t-> Mr. liotheringtou,
with whom he was now alone.
"I hate a man who will and. who
won't," he said. "But I have w'aiied
a long time for you."
"And your experiment?" asked Mr.
Hetherington, unable to disguise nis
eager Impatience.
"Tr.e experiment is on the verge of
completion," returned the old man
with his chilling and uncanny smile.
"You must go with me to niy laboratory now to assist
Perhaps you are surp
men of your race .to help me, but
I have always had a fellow feeling
for negroes. Nature playe** your
people the same soi' or jest in giving
you black faces as she played in giving me no nose,""
"Is the laboratory through there?",
asked Mr. Hetherington.' pointing to
a door in ,oiu corner of the room.
"Patience, patience,", smiled Siddle; "patience for a little time, and
then���no,more neea for patience. Yes,
I prefer blacks0to whites. My own

"I am sure it has been a great misfortune to you," said Mr. Hetherington; "but about ycir experiment we
are to help you in?"
"Rather the experiment to which
you are a necessity," replied the old
man. "It has only been waiting for
you."  ���
He motioned to them to follow
him, and went i��to the room adjoining. This .vas a large apartment, tilled up as a laboratory and provided
with many applianrej of* whici. neither Hugh nor his uncle understood

GREAT BRITAIN CAN FINANCE  WAR FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS  ACCUMULATION OF GOLD LARGEST IN HISTORY  Mr. Lloyd George Explains how the Allied Powers have made  Arrangements to help pne Another in the most Expensive  War that has ever been Waged  In a -statement explanatory of the  Errangenient made at the conference  etween the finance ministers of  France and Russia . and himself in  faris the Rt. Hon. David Lloyd  George told the house of commontj  that tho expenditures of the allies on  the war would be two billion pounds  Bterling ($10,000,000,000) during the  current year, of which Great Britain  was spending more money than wero  her two allies.  The present war, Mr.vLloyd George  Bald, waB the most expensive in material, men and money, that had ever  been waged.  Great1' Britain, the chancellor of  the exchequer told the house of commons, could finance the war ..for five  years out of the iroceeds of her  investments abroad. France was  able, to do so for about two or three  years with something to spare. Rus-  &ian, he said, although prodigiously  rich   in   natural resources,   was in a  abroad, and the some thing had applied to France.  "I am not sure we realize the strain  upon this gallant country," the chancellor of .the exchequer coutinued.  "She has had a larger porportion of  her men in the "field and the enemy  in occupation of the richest part of  her territory. Nevertheless, the confidence of the French nation Btrikes  every visitor to Paris. There is to be  seen a calm and sincere courage supposed to   be'incompatible, with.the  and  tempernient of tho   Celt,   and   one  hears the general assurance   that the  German army haa as much chance of, .  crushing France as   of ..overrunning their origin-in excessive   drinking-  The Russian  Moral Triumph  Now Shining Before the World United  In Two  Noble Determinations  A note to the. Russian budget bill  furnishes a remarkable illustration of  the social and economic advantages  which sobriety���������even compulsory sobriety���������brings to a community.  In referring to the effect of the war  ���������on industry, the finance minister says  that except in districts directly affected by the war. there has been no sensible diminution in the industrial output. Thef reason given is the increased  productivity of the worker owing to  the suppression of the sale of alcohol.  ���������'This .increased productivity has  reached from thirty to fifty per cent,  and compensates largely for the diminution in* the number of workers due  to the call to the colors."  Assuming that Russian human nature does not differ materially from  our own���������and judging by Mr. Stuart  Deacon's remark that his morning b  work in the police court of a city  where the. selling of drink is practically unrestricted' was a nightmare  because of the number of cases having  German Blockade lJHE DELUSION OF GERMANY AND  DREAM OF WORLD-WIDE EMPIRE  Right   Hon.   D.   Lloyd   George  different position. Mi. Lloyd George  said Jt Was decided at ilu- conference  of the finance mini iters in j.Jaris not  to issue a joint loan.  The chancellor' said thr.t Russia  had increased her product.vlty from  20 to 40 per cent, by surpressiny' the  sale of vodka. Russi-, had had special  difficulties In financing hor purchases  Mars."  "Each ally must bring Its resources Into the common stock," Mr.  Lloyd George contluued. "War cannot be made under limited liability  principles. Tho conference dismissed the idea of a joint international  loan, which would have.frightened  every Bourse, and it hat been decided that, each' country should raise  the money it needed within its own  territories, so far as conditions allowed. But if. help were needed for  purchases abroad those who ��������� had  means would .help lo the best of their  power. The only joint loan would be  with respect to the advances made  or to be made to the, smaller of the  allied states.  , With regard to Russian purchases,  the chancellor -.aid it had been decided that' the " first ������50,000,000  for this purpde . should be raised in  equal amounts on the Paris and London markets. Russian treasury bills  to the amount of ������10,000,000 Issued  In London In the last few days had-  been oversubscribed.  Mr..Lloyd George said there was a  satisfactory amount of gold in London.- "If, Jiowever, our gold reserves  fall below a certal-. point���������a pretty  high point���������the banks of France and  Russia will come to our assistance,"  he remarked. He mentioned incidentally that the allies would have to see  that Belgium did not suffer when the  perlo'd -of restoration and compensation came. .  The' chancellor laid emphasis-on  the,, fact that the'allies must be prepared to contribute proportionately  to the loans needed by the states  prepared to Join them later as  well as the smaller states now fight-  <tuy_ the allies. Great Britain, he^  jsaidrhad���������advancecr~Ji;"3J!,"0"0"0;u00~~"for  Russian purchases in Great Britain  and elsewJiere and Russia had a credit  of ������40,000,000 in London. France  also had made advances to Russia for  other similar purchases outside of  the Russian empire.  After alluding to the fact that tho  accumulation of gold in Great Britain  was' the largest In the history of the  country, Lloyd George, added that  Frarce and Russia also had accumulated great reserves, which had been  barely, touched during the war. Arrangements had be^n made regarding  purchases by th allied countries in  neutral markets whereby competition  was eliminated', efficiency was promoted and delays were prevented.  this increased industrial activity tn  Russia is certain to.be accompanied  by a decrease ln crime, accident, disease and mental weakness.  Russia never did a braver" thing or  achieved a finer triumph thau when  she abolished the state sale of alcohol.  By one word the Czar, who has always been a firm and earnest advo-~  cate of temperance, decreed , that  never more should the unrestricted  sale of strong drink take place in his  vast empire.  With the boldness of a righteous  cause the Czar swept away at a stroke  a state income of some ������80,000,000 a  year, and,- of course, the chancellor1 of  the exchequer had to find this elsewhere. He did so by increasing almost all taxes, from land and house3  to matches and cigarette papers, and  on the liquors sold under comprehensive restrictions from three to six  times" the former duties have been  imposed.  Vodka selling price has been raised  to 15s. a gallon, as against about 6s.  3d.; and the malt excise from 33. to  7d. a pood to 19s. By, means of these  Increases a great portion of the deficit is wiped out, some little margin  being left for the economic gains that  always follow when, drink money is  spent on better things.  Whatever Russia may have been in  the past, she is,now shining before  the world united in two noble determinations. She has*-set out to help  her allies in freeing the world from  the , evil domination of the horrible  German ideal���������a cause whlcJi the  Greek minister tn London, in his remarkable declaration of friendship fcr  England, described as just and good  for the whole world���������and she is ensuring for her own people-a sobriety  -which,���������as���������well���������the���������Gzar���������kno'vv-s,���������can-  lead only to the attainment of that  democratic freedom which "can be5  kept back no longer when a drinking  people become a thinking people.���������  Liverpool Post.

Napoleon's famous "paper" blockade of the British Isles, which was  established' by his 'Berlin decree of  November 1, 1806, was a move made  by him to compel England to recognize the maritime law as constructed  at the Peace of Utrech. The policV  was known as the 'continental, system." J* **���������  The blockade was designed to shut  Great Britain off entirely from, tho  continent of Europo. lt prohibited all  commerce and correspondence from  Britain; all Englishmen found ln  couutries controlled by French troops  wore made prisoners of war; all merchandise possessed by Englishmen  was made lawful prize and all trade  in English goods was entirely prohibited.   -  No ship from Britain or its colonies  was permitted to, enter any port and  any ship seeking to evade this regulation by faise declarations was seized  with its cargo.  Three months later England, in retaliation, forbade all neutral vessels  from trading port to port within  France or any allied country. Confiscation of vessel and cargo was the  penalty.  Napoleon responded with a decree  a few days later ordering the confiscation of All English owned merchandise in Germany. ������������������  In November, 1807, England declared all ports in France, allied countries  and other countries, not at war, but  from whose "ports the English flag  was excluded, to be under the same  restrictions as if they were strictly  blockaded. - " - ��������� ���������  ������������������ Two weeks after the French answered with the.Milan decree, and early  in 1808 with another Issued from Tuil-  lerles,, directing that any ship that  had submitted to British search, beon  sent on a voyage-to Britain or paid  duty to that country was to be'considered British and liable to capture.  ,At the treaty of Tilsit, Russia consented to close her ports to "Britain,  the more effectually to annihilate British commerce.  The consequence of tbe continental  system was giving industries on the  continent a start as latter .day competitors of England, but prices rose so  heavily that the middle classes were  severely inconvenienced.  However, both politically and economically the continental system was  a mistake. Russia abandoned- it in  1810. It resulted in the breaking up  of Napoleon's power. '  Britain's enforcement of its blockade rulings offended the United States  and formed' one of the principal  causes.of the war-in 1812. ;   DESIRE HAS BEEN CHERISHED FOR MANY YEARS  Dr.  Eliot, of Harvard University, j says  that Germany has had  Ambitions to become a World Power since 1870, and has  Ever since been Working to this End  Naval Losses  at  "Threo  weeks  ago  ho  was  turn  ished with peasant clothes to replace  his uniform, and he Iuaiburod off Into  tho night to mako h's way past tuo tho Vl'knor,'*. hos������* loss wns presumed  Germany's Comparative Losses  Sea Far Outnumber That of  Britain  One aspect of Germany's naval  losses has been quite overlooked���������the  seriou^ decrease in personnel' which  they have entailed.

As the total  effective strength of the *;>orsonnel of  the Gorman navy beforo the war  broko out was, less than 80,000, the  death roll already amounts to about  one-seventh of tho wholo.

The  human sympathy of Uie British for  their fallen toes was, on this occasion,  in lino keeping with the best traditions,, of the British navy, as the several stories of the scenes that took  place after the engagement' go to  prove. "No action is complete without tho Arethusa," writes a member  of the crew of that famous iiiiip to  his mother as he begins to Jescrlbe  ti.e light and tue scenes which tallowed the sinking of tue Blucher. "At  last," ho.adds, "who' have got what  wo havo been longing for for nearly  tho mouths, and it has come���������a vie**,  tory." It was tho Arethusa <--iut finished the Blucher, and the writer  tolls how it was' done.  "We lot llro two torpedoes, which  found their mark, Both hit in tho  bows Just below tho water lino. Sho  heeled over at once; then eased buck  again; then sho luy on hor starboard  sido for about ton minutes. Her  crew woro all lined up along tbo sido  ready to bo rescued, and when wo had  steamed about eighty or a hundiod  yards from her Bho guvo her lust  heave, Then tho Germans all lot go  and jumped into the water, lt was a  sight I nover want to seo again.

I took him forward and clothed him  with some of my sparo clothes. Ho  mild Uo did not know how to thank  mo."  , In the January Issue of the Fra appears tho notable contribution to tho  literature of the war by Dr. Charles  W. Eliot, * president emeritus of Harvard Uuiversity. Dr. Eliot brushes  aside the incidents of tho murder of  the Austrian Archduke and the friction between Servii and Austria and  Austria and Russia and asserts thut  tho prime source of the present Immense disaster Is the desire on tho  part of Germany for world-empire.  This desire, he says, has been chor-  ished at different times by oue European nation after another and none  that- has once adopted t has ever  completely eradicated it. Prussia long  hold this ambition, but was unable to  gratify lt until 1870,���������becauso the German people had been divided since  the Thirty Yeai3' War Into a* large  number of eparate, more or less independent states. Shortly before the  achievement of German unity by Bismarck she had obtained by war in  1864 and 180G important accessions  to territory, "'.  This contributed    to   tho delusion  that was soon to seize the whole German people,   namely,   the belief that  world-empire was only to be obtaineo  by force of arms.   Therefore, says Dr.  Eliot, united Germany   has-  labored  with utmost Intelligence and energy  to prepare the  most powerful  army  in the world and to equip It for instant action in the most perfect manner that science and eager invention  could contrive.    To develop the supreme- military    machine,   univers'ail  conscription���������an   outgrowt-i   of n the  conception of the citizens' army during the    Revolution���������wns necessary;  so that every young man in Germany  physically competent    to   bear arms  might receive the training of a soldier, whether he wished it or not, and,  remain at tbe call of the government  for military duty during all his years  of competency even   If h3 were the  only son of a widow, or a widower  with little children, or   the sole support of a family or other dependants.  . Eventually the   German army was  made the largest, according to population, in tbe work., and the irost efficient.  It. was placed absolutely at  the  disposal   of   the   Kaiser,    whose  mere word would march It at a day's  notice*, to  any  frontier  without  any  sanction   from the Reichstag or.any  other .supposed representative of public opinion.    At   the opening of 191-1  the-Germafl-general-staff���������was-of-ooiu������-  lon" that the German  army was  the  best and-most powerful in the world,  and that it would   do   it's 'Share toward bringing true the German ambition   toward    world-empire.   In'" the  view ot Dr. Eliot, the*German navy  was not ready, and'knew that-It was ���������  not ready, to throw down the gauntlet  to  Britain,    it    needed a few years  more before lt could accomplish on  the sea what was confidently expected of the army on land.    Thorefore   '  six, months ago Germany egged Austria on  in  the belief    that   .Britain  would not go to war.   Her army th*' ���������  considered to be, with tho assistance  of the Austrian    army, moro than ft   ,  match for the land forces of France  and Russia, and her navy was strong   .  enough   to    cope   with those of the  Double Entente." Britain's ontry Into  the war was. something sho had never  calculated upon.  Dr. Eliot continues to expound the  German religion of valor, and to show  how It Is a contradiction of the religion of Jesus of Nazareth. Ho then  discusses the German contention that  the present war is waged as a defence  against Russia. He'gays: "German*"  has never dreaded or even respected  lho military strenfth of Russia, and  the recent wars and threatenings ot ���������  war by Germany have not been dt ���������  rected against Russia;* but " against  Denmark, Austria, France ..nd England, ln her colonization enterprlflee J  it is not Russia that Germany haa  encountered' but, England, France and  the United' States.- The friendly advances made within the last twenty  years by Germany to Turkey were not  intended primarily to strengthen Ger.  many against Russia, but Germany  against Great Britain by Germany's  access by land to India.''^   , -  Dr.  Eliot  says   that- tho  desirable-  outcomes of the war are: "No world-  empire  i'or any  race    or nation, no  more subjects,    -ao more executives,  either permanent or temporary, with  powor to throw their fellow-country- -  men  into  war,  no  secret  diplomacy  justifying the "us*; for a profit of al!  the lies, concealments, deceptions and  ambuscades which,, aro   an Inevitable  part of war and assuming to commit  nations od    international    questions,  and no more conscription armies that  can be'launched .a war  by'executives '  \vithoiit consulting    Independent representative assemblies.-   He bollcvoo  with Havel jck Ellis' and other noted  public, mon that some sort of federated Europe or league of the freer na.  tions which would secure the smalle?  nations against attack should bo ono  of'the outcomes of the'w*ar.   He,ad������  jiilts-that-at���������tne��������� present���������tlme,������!t-l8-Ins--  posslble to say how such a consummation ,13 to be brought about, but lf  it is not. accomplished or something  that will serve the same purposo, tha  war will have been fougbt in vain.  How Aviators Take Aim  Charms on Soldier3  Methods Followed In Dropping Bombs  Strance "Protection"  Found  on Cap-  and   Locating   the   Target |    - tured Germans  A year ago.Lieut, Varcin,   of   the      "Eye-Witness," in a"despatch frona  Freuch army, from a height of over , the front, has seme-thing to say about  800 feet,, struck a target with his  bombs 13 times out of lf������ trials. Tho  target had a diameter of about 70  feet. This Is rather remarkable, when  the fact is taken into consideration,  that Varcin not only hurled these  bombs himself, but acted as his own  pilot.  The method of working is as follows; The hood of thu machine, which  is usually of canvas, has an opening  in front so as to give the aviator u  view ahead. At IiIb feet ,ho may look  straight down. Thus his vision 'covers everything ahead and below. At  tho aviator's right Is a steel bomo  holder. Thla remains closed until  the aviator, by bringing his log io  ono sido, i..'ops taut a connecting  cord attachod to tho end of tlu hold-  et, This opens the holler, re.easing  the bomb. Tho apparatus at once  closes, a, second' sholl moanllmo replacing tho first.  Tho matter of aiming is not qulto  so simple, Across tho hole, directly  beneath tho aviator, . is Hfretched a  cord divided Into equnl parts hy various colorB, rod, bl'io, etc. In front of  the aviator Is stretchod a cord agaliiPt  which he rests liis head while ho  altiiH, An ho alms, moar.tlmo looldng  at tho colored Hocttons of tho cord  below to glvo him a moans of sluht-  ing, ho suddenly Jerks his leg, tinui  dropping tho bomb, That Is the  method Ucut.
