    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.

Thousands of Young Chinamen Un

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

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.

In prose and verse. .
Tho number of candidates ut such
examinations still counts up Into the

which western editors return ambi

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.

ONE EVENING
By MILDRED WHITE.
(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.
