THE MYSTERY MAINS By AGNES Q. DROGAN. (Copyright, 1919, WoHtttrn Newnpaper Union) Laurel went up the unfrequented pnth, 11 look of expectancy upon her lovoly, eager face. To her the tangled wny whs as a broad and open rond, for alio had lived mid grown In the mountain; Its dense solitudes tier play (.round, each rough nioiintulnoer her champion. Laurel's gentle mother lind been un ublo long to copo with the hard life to which her young husband brought horsho had loft her "little mountain flower," ns she called the girl, to his care, and, now, for ninny years Laurel lind been alone. Untaught she grow, her only books tho ones nature gave her. Vol Laurel was happy, confident In the euro of her kind neighbors, keeping house In the little cottngo of her parents. Dave, tho roughest and kindest of the men her father hnd known, guided In a careful wny Laurel's speech. Dnve, In times pnst had known education. It was ho who taught Laurel the rudi ments of reading. Laurel was unafraid of wild things. There were birds which learned to an swer her call, squirrels which enmo to feed from her hand. Hut this dog, this fierce threatening creature was tho conquest Lnurel's spirit craved. Tho men of the Isolated section were handed together in friendliness, but this wus no place for an Interloper. Lnurel caught her breath at a sound In tho thicket near by, then low and crooning she gave n call. It was the dog, ns she had thought. Ills fierce Jaws protruded, then swiftly, noise lessly he enmo fawning to her feet. Laurel bent with a glad cry, her hands caressing him. For days she had awaited this surrender. Her pa tience hud been long. Suddenly the dog withdrew from her caress. Im peratively he sounded a bark of dis tress. Coaxlngly ho ran before, only to re turn, eloquently begging tho girl to follow. Quickly. Laurel obeyed. On through brambles that cut her face, on to tho door of n small hidden tent. Then, still on, through tho open (lap to the side of a man reclining on a cot bed. Tho man put out his hand to the dog. "Good Cnp." ho said, "you managed to bring me aid." Smiling he turned to the girl. "I'vo been n prisoner In my own tent," ho told her, "Hot my leg caught In somo confounded trap. Then broke It, trying to get away." Laurel was nil sympathy, strange ness, astonishment forgotten. "Oh J!' she murmured, "you must hnvo suffered and you'vo been lying hero 'helpless," "For nearly two days," tho man re plied. I'm pretty weak," ho said, and smiled again. Lnurel liked his smile. She lllto his soft voice thnt was so different from tho men's voices that she had known. "First, I will get food for you," she suggested shyly, and went at his di rection In search of It. Every morning thereafter, Laurel ran, nil nglow, up the mountain path. Tho stranger had need of her, and service was Laurel's only creel. Sho must not betray iln presence, ho told her, bis" dark eyes beseeching, ho wished It to be kept unknown. Sometime she would learn why. lhit now now he loaned her books and magazines with pictures of beautiful women In a wonder of which Laurel know nothing. Sho spelled out the books until far Into the night. She dreamed dreams and kept tho secret. It was Dave who enmo upon tho girl one day with thu dog at her aide, Intent upon her happy errand of mercy. "Whoso dog?" he questioned, nnd when she refused to answer, Dave bided his time and secretly following, came upon her at tho very tent door. . "We'll see," ho said angrily, "what It Is you're hiding from your guard ians," And Dave saw. Tho man lay white and calm be neath tho tirade of tho mountaineer's accusing tongue. 1 "So you uro tho mystery mnn we've been hunting," ho raged, "hiding away like a cur for the crime you'vo done. Mny bo you thought wo wouldn't get word of it in this Iono corner, but we did, and we've been laying low." Tho man on the cot turned to tho .Bin. "Lnurel," he asked, "do yon believe nne to bo tho mnn ho thinks me?" 'Uie girl came closer. Mystery man," she replied, "nil the .world could not make mo believe jnnythmg of you that Is not right and true. My henrt knows." "lle'6 n thief," Dave stormed. "lie's -Uie lionest man that I lovo," Laurel answered. Djivo Jumped to his feot. "You've dared make love to horl" Uie cried. Tho man drew from his ninttreiH a 'budget of papers. "They may explain my reason here," Iho said. And when Dave looked up from tho papers his face had changed .humbly. i "So you nro on the trail of that slip pery one," ho muttered. "You, a fed eral detective 1 I'm sorry, I thought" "That," the man replied, "concerns mo little. H Is what Laurel thought that mattorod. She had promised to go bnck to tho worhl with mo as my wife. And" "And I ni going with you, Mystery Una," said Laurel. "gORN OF FIRE AND BLOOD" ! Officer Tells of Circumstances Under Which Colonel McCrea Wrote "In Flanders Fields." 'In Flanders FluhN," to quote the words of Major General Morrison, who commanded tho brigade to which Lieu tenant Colonel McCrea was attached at the time, "was literally born of fire nnd blood during the hottest jHmse of the second buttle of Ypret. "My headquarters were In n tronefi on the top of the bank of the Ypres canal; and John had his dreeing tu Hon In a hole dug In' thu foot of the bank. During periods of the hnttlv men who were shot actually rolled down the bank Into his dressing sta tion. Along from us a few hundred yards was the headquarters of a regi ment, and mnny times during the 1(1 days of the battle, he mid I watched them burying their dead whenever there was n lull. Thus the crosses, row on row, grew Into u good-sized cemetery. ".Inst as ho describes, we often heard the larks singing high In the air, between the crush of the shell and tho reports of the guns in the battery Just beside us. I have a letter from him In which ho mentions having written" the poem to pass away the time be tween the arrival of hatches of wounded, and partly ns an experiment with several varieties of poetic meter." The unit with which MeCriio served was the most advanced of all the al lies' guns by a good deal, except one French battery, which stayed In a position yet more ndvanced for two days, and then had to be taken out. MANY SEEK COVETED TITLE Thousands of Young Chinamen Un dergo Severe Examination In Hope of Becoming Mandarins. Though Chinese education Is grad ually undergoing change, candidates for the title of mandarin still gather at three-year Intervals In Chinese cit ies, nnd the examiners sit In their robes of state under their umbrellas and conduct the examinations. Many of the younger generation nowadays have imbibed a western Idea of education; but many still begin with tiie lioolt of Three Characters, the Hook of a Hundred Families and tho Hook of a Thousand Words, and pur sue an educational system thnt Is held to be more than 30 centuries old, to the ultimate triumph of becoming man darins and enjoying the ceremonial honors, distinctive costume and an In dividual reputation for wisdom and learning, that go with the title. The examination consists In tho writing of philosophical and political essays, ex position of the savings of Confucius. commenting on Chinese texts and the composition- of sentences nnd maxims In prose and verse. . Tho number of candidates ut such examinations still counts up Into the thousands. Sometimes their failures, one might say, In the phrase with which western editors return ambi tious contributions, have been "due to no lack of merit." for the number of vacancies to be filled at any one time In the list of mandarins Is very small compared with the number of candi dates. Christian Science Monitor. Ponds Like Pools of Ink. In cross-country flying, clear, quies cent ponds of water are usually the darkest areas In the landscape. Often they appear like pools of Ink and their relative brightness Is much less than that of black velvet. This Is easily explained. The water Is perfectly clear and the bottom Is black and porous. Little or no light Is rellected except from the surface. Incidentally a pond of this type pro vides the best mirror In the landscape, for Its background Is almost perfectly dark, which Is not the case for turbid water. If one watches very carefully he can detect the Image of the air plane rellected In tho water without dllllculty at L',000 or .1,000 feot. This gives a true vertical line which may be of use on some occasions. At least observation of this Image gives a rec ord of the horizontal speed regardless of other movements of the airplane. M. Lueklesh In the Sclentlllc Amer ican. Harvest and Hunter's Moon. Tho full moon nearest the autumnal equinox (September '."J) Is known as the "harvest moon." Owing to the oc currence of minimum retardation In the time or rising at that period, this moon rises at nearly the same time on several successive nights. It rlxei early and gives tho husbandmen who have been playing golf all day an op portunity to gather their crops, hence Its name. The "hunter's moon" Is the moon following the "harvest moon." The occasion for Its name Is obvious, it occurs at the season of the year when the country youth, the harvest having been gathered, slings his gun over his shoulder and wanders through the Woods In search of the gray squirrel and other larger game. i Aces Up.

(Copyright, 1919, Western Newspaper Union) The leaves blew In crackling henps across the wind-swept verandn ns the man hurrying to escape hd October shower ascended tho steps. To nil np peaninces the old house was vacnnt; darkly nnwelcomo the windows con fronted him, nnd there was no re sponse to his ring. The stranger lingered ns though loath to leavo. then went slowly around the garden path. At tho lower end of the bouse a light rewarded him. It shone from n curtained window, and tho man went unhesltutlngly to n side door set In a vine-covered porch. As he raised his hnnd to the old fnshloned door bell, he paused, struck by a comfortable home-like picture. Inside, a womnn was seated In the glow of n rose-colored Inmp. Her face was bent over the crimson wool she was knitting, nnd her Silvery hair In curling tendrils touched her pink cheeks. There was something singu larly youthful about that bent head, notwithstanding the whiteness of its soft colled hair. Though told winds shook the porch, the woman Inside was clothed in dnlnty white. And present ly, ns though Instinctively aware of a witching eye, she raised her fnco In the Inmp light, while the mnn outside cnught his breath, as one who had seen a vision. , Then no longer hesitant, his sum mons pealed through the rooms. The woman, arising, stood startled by the table; as sho uttered n word, a grent dog came from beneath It. aggressively speaking protection. The animal, pre ceding her to the door, she opened It, awnlllng the stranger's mission. The sound of his volco was pleasing assurance. "I found no one at home In tho front of tho house," he said, "and so came around here to beg for shelter. I am overtaken on a dnrk road In the storm. May I nsk tho liberty of running my car Into the barn nnd, If possible, ac commodation for myself over night. Twice I hnve found accommodation," he hnstenod to add at her stare of nstonlshment, "In this snme house." "I see." The woman's voice sound ed sweet In his enrs. "But you misunderstand. That was In the grcnt part of the houso which Is separated from my smnll wing. I live here nlono. My neighbors have gone away for the evening but will re turn Inter." Sho considered a moment, bcr linnd on the dog's head, the wind tearing around the corner tossed wet leaves against their faces. "You are welcome to wait In my sit ting room until they return," she said Impulsively. "It may help you pass tho time, Mr. Cole," she said. Hut the man took a chair opposite her own, regnrdlng her thoughtfully. "I would like," ho snld, "to tell you of one evening In my life which this one recalls," She looked nt him with n quick, In viting smile, then Into her blue eyes enmo a wondering, retrospective light. "It wns on Just such an evening years ago," tho mnn went on. "thnt I lost my way In this same road, and begged for shelter for the night at tho same house. An elderly couple wel comed me hospitably, nnd by their fire side, In a room like this, wo sat and tnlked of many things. They .were In terested In all that I could tell, while nearby, her lingers busy with embroi dery, but her beautiful eyes often up raised to mine, sat a young girl." Tho man paused. "There seems nothing more to tell about her than that," ho said musingly, "but her very presence there, her personality, appealed to me as no woman over hnd appealed be fore. "It was she who bade me good night, passing nt last up the high stairway with but one bnckwnrd glanco to soften my disappointment. I wns obliged to leavo very early tho next morning. Back In my city homo I realized In nstonlshment thnt I had not learned the nnmo of my protectors or more nbout tho young girl thnn that they called her 'Le. Dlscournglug this finality, to nn nrdent heart which would hnvo confided Its affection to paper, seeking tho faint hope of a re ply. The girl's unforgettable face haunted me for a'year. Then a second time I went bnck to the lonely rond nnd sought shelter. Strangers opened tho door of tho house, strangers took me In. The old MncGregors were dead they snld. '"Their daughter?' I asked breath lessly. "'Dead nlso.' they replied. "It wns as though my future had ended suddenly boforo Its beginning. Yet In my heart 'Le' still lived. Ono evening had made for me her person ality a deathless thing. Always I saw her, silent, sweet, appealing." The man arose, his face was white with emotion. "Tonight." he snld. "I came agnln." The woman arose also. Sho spoke softly, hastily. "I remember It all," sho said. "I was visiting grandmother and grand fathor then. There was something about yon thnt one did not forget; your glad frankness, perhnps yourself. I am Leonle. When my grandparents died they left to mo this home. I rent tho hlggor half, and try to make my own little homo hero." In the rosy lamp light lie two stood and looked Into otivh other's rni-n. 1 Hofore them euittil to stretch n fu ture ns roco-colored nnd ns bright. NORTH PLATTE ..General Hospital..
