Bill Yackey, former air mail pilot
stationed at Omaha and now operat
ing a commercial line in Chicago, ar
rived in Omaha at 10:10 yesterday
morning in a new five-passenger
French ship with one passenger. A
renofted tried to find out what it was
all about. This is what he found:
First An Associated Press dis
patch from Chicago:
"When Charles Cripp, reputed
wealthy cattle man, was notified
Wednesday that his son had been
seriously injured in an automobile
accident in Omaha, he immediately
chartered an airplane to tale him
home. The flight was expected to
takt four and one-half hours and cot
Cripp $J00 for the'round trip."
Second The passenger's statement
to the reporter:
"My nama isn't Cripp; it's C. C.
Hrhricksen. I'm a ttock buyer and
my home's In Broken Bow. I'd al
at had an cmbition to ride a ship.

it is. Look at Topsyt She'd made

" He broke off, meeting the other
man't eyes.
Greaves carefully cut and lit a
cigar. There was a moment of si
lence, then he said, quietly:
"I never knew you were such a
good judge of character. Wicklow."
Barry colored. "I sungose yoii'rc
pulling my leg." '
"I'm not in the leatt. At a matter
of fact, I think you're right in every
thing you say. I've always thought
, Barry ttared. "You mean you
mean what the devil do you mean?"
he asked,, irritably.
Greaves pulled u? a chair and sat
"Look here, my boy," he said. "I'm
foing to talk to you like a father,
t't no business of mine whether you
and your wife hit it or not, but I'm
It cute as most people, and from the
way you're upsetting yourself I sup
pose you think something of her.
She's a dear little girl, I'm fond of
her oh, you needn't glare like that,"
he added, as Barry began to look
angry. "There's no harm in my af
fection for her, or I shouldn't be tell
ing you about it, you bet your life.
You're right in what you say; she'll
never make a ruccess on the ttage,
atyl I've known it all along."
Barry hardly knew if he were
angry or relieved, and the other man
went on.
"Hulbert introduced her to me. He
wanted me to do something for Jier;
you know his way. He thinks money
can do anything. I'm an old man,
and I know it can't. Hazel's pretty
enough; she'd get over the footlights
all right if all the audience expected
her to. do was to smile at them and
look pretty. She Jiasn't got a bad
little voice, either, and she dances
quite nicely, but . He sbugged
his heavy shoulders. "She hasn't
got the cheek! I'm using your own
word. She hasn't got the 'bite.' if
you understand me." He paused.
"And you maf congratulate your
self that she hasn't," he added, dryly.
"You've never told her this. You've
led her to believe to expect htat "
Barry stopped. "I suppose you're
going to give her a chance and let
her fail' Is that it?" he asked again,
Greaves did not answer.
"It' a rotten trick, anyway," Bar
ry went on. hotly. "She ousht to he
told. I shall tell her myself."
"My dear boy, she won't believe
you. Teople never do when they're
stage struck. I've given up trying to
tell them. They only look torrv for
me and go off to someone else. Your
wife has got to learn h'r lesson the
same as the rest; and Hulhert't got
to learn it, too. It's just a cast

hit hand. " 'Pon my word, Wick
low, 1 believe I really rather like
you after all." '
Barry laughed. "Well you're about
the only one of my acquaintance!
who does, then," he taid, constrain
edly. "I've made more enemiet dur
ing the past month than ever in my
life before "
But he felt considerably cheered.
It wat early morning when he left
If Hazel were a failure! The
thought gave him a pang. He did
not want her to fail; it would hurt
him more than anything in the world
to know of her disappointment. And
yet, on the other hand, if the were
to succeed it meant an eternal bar
rier between her life and hit. , s
Supposing Greavct were not to be
trusted; supposing he was the sort
of a man who ran with the hare and
hunted with the hounds? What was
a man to believe?
He passed a wretched night. One
moment he wished he had. never seen
Greave. and the next moment he
was sure that Greaves would prove
a friend. He stayed in bed late the
next morning. Hit head ached mis
erably; it made him hot all over to
think of that scene at Topsy's flat
Whatever happened he would never
go there any more; that pirt of his
life wat wiped out for ever.
In the afternoon he strolled round
to the club. He wondered if it were
hit imagination that several men he
met looked at him rather quizzical
ly. No doubt, Jimmy Helder had
been talking. He stayed half an hofcr,
and went back home again; he spent
the rest of the day indoors.
He felt at a loose end,,and yet he
had the feeling that something of
importance was going to happen;
that soon something definite would
put an end one way or the other to
the torment of the past weeks.
But Friday passed, and nothing did
happen, and Barry began to wonder
if plrhips it would not be as well to
pack a bag and go off home for the
week-end. He knew that hit uncle
and aunt would be glad to have him,
and it would be better than sticking
about in London and not knowing
how to kill time.
But it wat only afterMunch that he
made up hit mind. He wat looking
up train when the phone rang
sharply. It was Greaves.
"I looked for you at the club last
night." he said.
"What's happened to you?"
Barry scowled. "Nothing. I was
there in the afternoon. What do you
want? I'm just going away for the

clamation of surprise from the other
end of the phone.
"Going away I Surelv you'll be at

"The Pantheon!" Barry echoed, ir
ritably. "Why in the world should

way of stopping her, or persuading
her to give up the idea.
He turned bit ttept toward Hazel'i
flat. When he rang the bell and
asked to tee her, he saw the obviout
hesitation in the maid'f fare. Mitt

The eirl thrugged her thouldert

"I will take all the blame," Barry
said. . ...
Hazel had heard the raised volcei
in the hall. She came to the door of
her sitting room; she wat fully
dressed, and held a book in her hand.
Evidently she had made the excuse

Harding Willing
to Delay Action
on Ship Subsidy
ExpreMfe Opinion That Suc
cm of Measure Might Be
Jeopardized by Prei
ing Anion Now.
Washington, Aug. 24. Tretident
Harding, in a letter to Representative
Mondell, tht rtpubliran leader, ea-
pressed willingness to hsvt rongrei
tional comideration of the adminis
tration ship subsidy deferred "until
we can rivet tht attention of congrei
iith full attendance."
Success of the measure, the presi
dent added, might be jeopardised by
pressing for ait immediate decision.
The letter wis in reply to one from
!tlr. Mondell, in which the republican
eader had declared that he and hu
nsociatei were reluctant to bring the
bill to a vote in tht house it this
"I am frankly disappointed," the
president stated, "that the circum
stances have combined to make a dif
ficult tituation, due on tht one hand
to the dmiinisfied attendance in the
house, and chargeable on the other
hand to the new complications which
have arisen. It would he lolly to
score the development of the prohibi
tion issue which came up so unci
pectedly and we must ace the fact
that the friends of the bill must har
monize their views to accord with
both the constitutional amendment
and public opinion on this subject.
"Moreover, the came friends of the
measure must reach a concord in tha
matter of the favoring provision car
ried in the tax , exemption section,
which was designed to provide an in
direct aid to American thipping en
terprise." The president expretted the hope
that the adminittration would "find
a way ' to deal with these new diffi
culties with the approval of all sup
porters of an American merchant ma
rine, and that they may have favor
able action before the congret gets
too deeply engaged in the presing
TegiIation which mint be conidered
in the short seion."

Barry looked at his wife with des

Detector Tube Is
Traffic Cop of Air
Wide Difference Between
Cryml and Vacuum
What is the basic difference be
tween the crystal and tha detector
tuhe in their operation?
What is th function of each?
Many radio amateurs who art still
new in the game fail to comprehend
tne real tit pi tht detector tune,
knowing only that it workt far more
rflicirntly In the reception of radio
concert! than tht crystal.
Kadio sett might bt likened to
the broad main street of a treat
city. Stand en the pavement and
atch the automobiles on tha street.
There are thousands of them going
in oorn airertioni spening up and
down so fatt and in such great num
ber that it almost mVi you duty
to watch them.
That! tht v.iy with the electric
currents in a ridio set. The current
it what it railed "alternating" that
it, it swings from out direction to
the other and it doet it to rioidlv
at to be almost inconceivable. '
No telephone ditphragin in the
world will respond to such incon
ceivable rapidity.
So the clever radio engineers nut
in their iitt a little gadget called a
condenser, which ttorei up a lot of
these rapid pulsationt and. every to
often, releases a bunch of them all
it once. The ear and the telephone
respond best to something Ilk S.oon
pulsationt a tecond. They will
work up to JO.OOfl, but we have our
condenser chop up the incoming cur
rents into J ,000 bunchet, much like
tausaget ttrung on a long link.
But the pulsationt in each bunch
ire ttill first one way and then tbc
other, They ttill go so fast that
they would neutralize, each other's
effects of the diaphragm. So we
have to find something to mike them
all go the time direction in other
words, to eliminate those in one di
rection and use only thee in the
other. Then the bunch of one di
rection currents act together on the
telephone and the ear and we get
5,000 pulsationt a lecond, which ii
just what we want.
The detector it the traffic cop on
thii one-way itreet. It ii like a
water or air or steam valve in ft
action. It passn current in one di
rection, but blocks the current com
ing in the opposite direction.
If you are within about five miler
of a big broadcasting station ytou can
hear the concerts on a cryital but
you can never amplify the signals
or put them on a loud speaking horn.
The best you can do it to put four
or five lets of telephone in the cir
cuit and thus let your friends hear.
With the audion bulb, under fav
orable conditions, you can hear the
concert for 300 or 400 miles and,
by adding what is known, ar ampli
fiers, you can make the signals just
about as loud as you want to and
put them on a horn or phonograph
so that everybody in the room can
hear them, .

not gone over 400 yards along the
road when from both sides we were
eiught by a deadly erii-croit of ma
chine gun fire.
' "The driver of Collin' or united

to take rover. He took command

"It was during a lull in the attack

creeping on hands and kmes tome
distance down the road behind him.
Mick immediately went about a dor
en yardt in hit direction with the ob

in the rear of the party. At that
moment heavy firing swept across
the road from botb sides. The gun
in the whippet armored car which
followed had jammed, lessening the
effect of our firt.

caused Mick to turn around for a
few seconds and the next moment I
saw him fall to the ground, shot
through the head. At he lay dying
he shouted word of encouragement
to his men. to go on firing and not
mind him. Immediately there were
cries of 'My God, Mick is shot.'
Men rushed to his assistance. Al
though .bleeding freely from a ter
ribly lacerated wound, he lived 15
minutes, during which he continued
to fire tiit revolver." - - - .
