Vernon, MOUNT VERNON SIGNAL gangster Macs advanced called slowly and with some trepidation toward a tallow dip sputtering in a bracket fixed against the inky black wall. As he fumbled at that bracket with thick and clumsy fingers, a fearful and gruesome thing happened. Suspended high over his head and concealed with the wall bracket by a slender wire, invisible in the semidarkness, was a massive Iron crowbar. Its beveled edge sharpened to a razorlike fineness. The coarse fingers brushing against an Ingenious trigger had instantly released that deadly weapon hanging in midair. It dropped straight down like a plummet and catching the unsuspecting gunman squarely on the head, split his skull like an egcshell. But the supernatural horrors of those subterranean vaults were still to he exhausted. For a moment Dutch Frank, the blond gangster, s,tared in white-faceconsternation at that ghastly figure stretched before him. Then, with a sudden bleat of terror, he turned from the appalling sight and fled blindly along the dusky tunnel toward the ladder leading to the upper world. In his mad rush to escape from those vaults of death he blundered heavily against an old and decaying mine prop. The timber crumbled like paper under the forceful blow from the shoulder of the racing blend giant, and with the suddenness of a cloudburst, a great section of rock, which roofed the tunnel, fell with a sullen roar onto the struggling gangster, crushing out his life and blocking up the passage. As the muttering echoes aroused by that landslide slowly subsided. Legar realized that the hand of death had robbed him of the last of his evil followers, and bis savage courage entirely forsook him. Obsessed with a mad desire to escapj frotii the encompassing shad ows, he frantically tore at the rocks which now checked his egress. It was with new misgivings that the girt crouching in the stygian gloom crypt on the lower of the walled-ilevel of the abandoned mine, heard the muffled roar accompanying the cascade of rocks into the tunnel. Her r enemy lying under the where he had fallen now gave unmistakable signs of returning consciousness. But these appalling conjectures were suddenly banished by a danger which threatened dire and immediate results. Her enemy lying under the trapdoor where he hnd fallen now gave unmistakable signs of returning consciousness. Presently he would commence to explore his surroundings, and the girl, separated by only a few feet of enshrouding darkness from the merciless criminal, felt her blood turn cold at the thought of those groping fingers which would eventually find her. But as she waited, scarcely during to breathe for fear of betraying her presence, she heard a low exclamation of satisfaction come from the Italian gunman, and even while she wondered what it could mean, a small shaft of light suddenly pierced the ebony blackness. That exclamation from her enemy meant he had found his pocket flashlight unbroken, and now a little circle of light traveled over the jutting walls, slowly approaching the spot where Margery Golden crouched, waiting her inevitable discovery with all the courage she could muster. Nearer, and yet nearer, came that betraying beam of light. Suddenly It rested full on the white face of the girl, while from the lips of Black Tony came a startled oath of wonder. Then the light was quickly extinguished, and Margery heard the soft pad of stealthily approaching footfalls. Into her distraught mind came the memory of those shelflike ridges she had seen at the farther end of the chamber, and, feeling her way along the damp wall, she stole rapidly toward them. Even as she stumbled against the lowest of those stone projections, she heard the sudden spring of the gangster, followed by his cry of baffled fury as he clawed at the empty air where he hnd last seen her. Then came a little click to her ears, and again that circle of light commenced its exploration. It suddenly glared Into her eyes, and the shadowy form behind it came rapidly under the ledge. With drawn breath and tumultuons-l- y beating heart, she waited, waited head until she saw the of the gangster just beneath her. Then with a mighty effort she lifted a heavy lump of coal, and with all her d strength sent it crashing onto the skull of the Italian. She now had nothing but her bare hands with which to repel that gangster, more dangerous and vicious than a mad dog. As she lay flat on the narrow ledge momentarily expecting a fresh onslaught, she knew there was but one possible chance for her salvation.

Tlien he slowly took from his pocket a folded square of note paper. "I had alnx,st forgotten to give this to you." he said, extending the paper to the wondering girl. "I found it fastened on the thorn hush near the great bowlder on Seven Oaks hill. It Is addressed to you and I think it must be from the Laughing Mask, for he has been seen around there a number of times." As Margery hastily glanced at the penciled note she saw that Davy was right in his conjecture, and he regained much that he had lost in her affections as she realized what a struggle it must have cost him to act as message bearer for his masked Manley and the laughing Mask being the same person. What has just happened proves I am right, for no two people could have changed places between the time we chased Manley into the gunroom and that masked criminal opened the door. No one came out of that window and you know It as well as I do." For a moment the puzzled girl took rapid counsel with herself. "I am afraid I shall have to discredit your theory again, Captain Bruckett," she said In unequivoeat-intones, "for David Manley did come through that window and I saw him with my own eyes." For a moment the police officer stared at her in apparent dishelief, but Margery felt she had twisted the truth in a good cause, and presently he turned from her clear, level gaze with the attitude of a man who has completely lost his about ures worming their way down tn slope toward her. She would have been taken entirely off her guard had not the gangster known as Dutch Frank heavy-footed g heavy-feature- d bearings. After lunch she slipped away from the group sitting on the broad veranda, discussing ways and moans for the Immediate captors of the Laughing Mask, and taking a shortcut across the fields, soon came lu sight of the old gray farmhouse. Off to one side of the weather-beate- n dwelling she saw Davy com- rival. "I'll trouble you to hand over that letter, Miss Golden," deinauded Captain Bracked in authoritative tones us lie stepped from his place of concealment. "I've had my doubts about your wantin' to land that masked criminal in the cell where he belongs ever since you steered us wrong the time he made his last getaway, an' perhaps this little dockyment will help throw some light on the subject." His beefy paw suddenly shot out anil firmly clutched her slender wrist. But the resisting girl found a timely ally in the person of David Manley, who perceived that for reasons of her own Margery did not wisli to surrender the note, and, with a quick movement snatched that object of contention from her fingers and stuffed It In his pocket The belligerent captain now advanced threateningly upon the new factor of this unexpected resistance to the majesty of the law. "Come across with that paper, young man," he bellowed furiously, "or I'll show you what it means to Interfere with an ofiieer performin' his duty." Then as the Davy exhibited no indications of complying with this demand, the irate policeman attempted to decide the issue by physical force. Roughly throwing a pinioning arm about the defiant Manley, he made a vigorous effort to extract paper from his pristhe oner's pocket. As the struggling figures thrashed and tramped over the orderly flower beds, Enoch Golden and two of Captain Brackett's men, who had heard the sounds of the unequal combat, came hurrying upon the scene. The sight of these enemy acted upon the nearly exhausted Davy like a rowelled spur upon the flanks of a jaded horse. With a supreme effort, he wrenched loose from the grasp of his d captor and darted across the stretch of velvet lawn toward the spacious countryhouse, with the determined officers close at his heels. Up the steps and through the open door he scurried, and, gaining the gunroom at the end of the hall, slammed and bolted the heavy door of that sanctuary In the very face of calm-face- d much-covete- d heavy-hande- trv-In- g Le-g-a- r. NINETEENTH EPISODE The Cave of Despair. Margery Golden was naturally of a happy disposition. Yet as sh sat In d the June fragrance of the rose garden and let her thoughts dwell on the recent events which had so rudely shattered her many cherished Ideals, the pensive-eyegirl could not repress a sigh which betrayed only too dearly her distress of mind. From a robin branch overhead a liquid-notepoured his melody of spring and gladness into the unheeding ears of the silent and preoccupied figure on the rustic bench. Suddenly the feathered songster ceased his joyous carol ns Margery heard the sound of approaching steps on the graveled walk. The newcomer stood looking wistfully down at the sweet-facegirl whose golden hair glinted in the shaft of sunlight filtering through the soft spring foliage. She met his look with one of surprised Inquiry. "I hardly expected to see you here, Davy, after all tnat has happened," he said In tones of gentle reproof. I had to come, Margery," he answered quietly, "i couldn't stay away from you any longer. Won't you believe that I am truly sorry for what I have done and try to forgive me?" The silent robin, which had been regarding this masculine intruder Into its peaceful domain with some uncertainty, now took wing in a sudden flutter of apprehension. For at oolor-splashe- fortably sprawled In a fringed hammock slung between two gnarled apple trees. Suddenly he sprang out of the hammock and, after an Irresolute glance toward the house, set off at an easy pace down the road In the direction of Seven Oaks hill. Under the deserted hammock Margery saw ,a folded square of paper, which she concluded was the note Davy had so narrowly saved from the ruthless clutches of Captain Brackett earlier in the day. But instead of the penciled lines of the Laughing Mask she saw a rough diagram of a great bowlder with a Under this star bisecting Its base-linstar were the words: "Press at this point until opening appears." The significance of the puzzling sketch suddenly flashed Into the mind of the silhouetted against the outer light girl. She knew that at she saw the leering face of Legar. one time extensive coal mining operaAs he came twisting through the tions had been carried on at Seven narrow passage the harried girl Oaks hill. sprang for the ladder and groping her In these forgotten catacombs, an way downward found herself In a entrance had apparently been effected sloping tunnel from which opened a by the construction of a secret door series of exhausted coal pockets. Margery could now hear rough at the foot of the lone bowlder on the hilltop. This would account for voices and the shuffling of feet on the the sudden disappearance of David platform above her head. After a e. long-deserte- clumsily loosed a heavy stone, which went bounding and crashing down the steep incline past the startled girl. "Spread out, and be quick about It !" Legar commanded sharply. "Tony, cut her off from the house; stay where you are. Dutch, in case she doubles back ; Mack, you watch the road ; I'll get the girl myself." Then out of her desperation was born a plan, uncertain and hazardous in Its nature, but worth attempting as a last resort. Gathering all her strength for a final effort, she headed directly for the lone bowlder some standing on the ridge-totwenty yards above her. She covered the intervening distance with a frenzied burst of speed and threw herself, panting convulsively, at the base of the massive rock. Then her bruised fingers came in contact with a slight projection, on which she saw painted the faint outline of a red star, She instantly pressed with all her strength against this projection and, with a sharp click of releasing bolts, a slab of wood so closely resembling the rock as to defy detection suddenly dropped in Its grooved guides, leaving a narrow aperture in the face of the bowlder. Even ns I.egar. h;s cruel face aflame with evil passion, rushed upon girl, she slipped the defenseless through the strange opening, and as she stumbled onto a rude wooden platform some ingenious mechanism sent the heavy panel shooting Into place behind her. Beneath the platform on which she was standing the gloom was broken by flickering tallow dips fixed against the wall, and Margery saw, as she expected, the labyrinthian galleries of coal mine. Then as the she discovered a ladder which led down Into the wavering shadows the heavy barrier suddenly dropped and p d stopped a siiort rllstanee down the roadT At sight of these implacable enemies the Laughing Mask, with a word of assurance to his companion, slipped quietly through the hedge and ran lightly toward the highway, down which the detectives were already coming. But the meaning of this surprising maneuver was apparent in another for mingled with the startled shouts of the officers came the rapid explosions from a motorcycle, which now darted away with its masked rider bending low over the handle bars. With a quick crash of gears the automobile started in hot pursuit. When lie Laughing Mask h;d established a fairly wide margin of safetj he slowed tlown and. from th saddle, ran wiih quick stride over 4K.- - Kv.

Far down in those buried chambers under the hill, for which those striving figures were headed, a wolfish-faceman desjierately clawed at the pile of rock and debris choking the tunnel. Suddenly with an eellike movement e he wriggled through the narrow he had effected, and staggered like a drunken man toward the ladder. his face livid with dread apprehension. He made his way through the opening and stood confusedly blinking In the bright flood of sunlight. The next moment a running figure bore down upon the outlaw from the other side of the rock. There was a sudden impact of colliding bodies and Jules Legar and the Laughing Mask stood in dazed uncertainty, starirg into each other's eyes. By warily evading the menace of that terrible claw of Iron, the masked mystery, with a sudden trick of Japanese origin, sent his heavier sppo-neThen, toppling over backward. before Legar could regain his balance, the Laughing Mask slipped through that still open passage into the bowlder, the panel closing sharply as he stepped on the platform. The next Instant Legar found himself face to faca with Captain Brackett and the two detectives, who had been hot on the trai? of the Laughing Mask. Before Legar could draw his cun those three heavy and resolute officer avalanched themselves upon him, burying him under their combined weight as he crashed to the ground. To Margery Golden, still lying on that narrow rocky ledge, expecting every moment an attack from ut of the dark, the passing time had itemed like a fearful eternity. She luvi heard Black Tony creeping about below har d pa9-sairscar-ravage- d d long-draw- n d nt d SK&j3 WHpfek BiWy wBSMfcr Ife' f '. his pursuers. "Don't be foolish, Davy," called out Golden sharply, "you are making a grave mistake In resisting the law and you will have to suffer the consequen ces unless you open this door Imme- diately." As though In compliance with this stern warning, the key grated In the lock and the door swung slowly inward. With a quick rush the besieging forces catapulted Into the gunroom, only to find It apparently empty. Then, with a gasp of amazed consternation they beheld a figure which silently emerged from the space between the swung-bacdoor and the wall. For that figure wore an enshrouding mask of yellow cambric and gripped In one hand a heavy caliber revolver, which wavered In disconcerting fashion over that startled group. "I think Davy must be well beyond recall by this time," he said as he slowly hacked toward the door, "and I will now leave you to your own dek The Capture of Legar. Manley behind that solitary rock on a previous occasion, and the equally sudden emergence of the Laughing Mask a moment later. With a feeling that at last she had stumbled upon a tangible clue, Margery sped rapidly across the meadows In the hope of reaching the undermined hill before Davy should arrive by the more circuitous route uf the highway. To her relief, the coast was still clear when she reached her destination, but when she had toiled half way up the steep slope the unsuspecting object of her espionage came sauntering leisurely along the shaded road. moment's hesitation she darted into one of the shadowy chambers, hoping to find some place of concealment In Its dark recesses.

A moment later, as the breathlessly waiting girl half expected, there Issued from behind that rocky screen a figure clad in the familiar habiliments of the Laughing Mask.

For the newcomer was none other than David Manley himself and the solution of that baffling mystery seemed further off than ever. At Bay. The sadly perplexed girl stepped out from her place of concealment and stood watching the fast disappearing figure of David Manley. To her further amazement, he seemed to be headed directly for the Wilkens' estate. What did It all mean? Deeply occupied with these distressing thoughts, Margery was oblivious to the ttsalthy approach of four sinister fig- - another of these spectrally lighted chambers on a lower level of the abandoned mine. But there was this difference the murky cave In which she now found herself had no outlet. Against one side of that tomblike chamber the miners had left an ascending series of rocky ledges upon which they must have stood to reach the higher coal deposits, but this rough stairway offered no hope of escape to the apprehensive glrL Then, with a faint flash of light the trapdoor swung open, and she heard a startled oath, followed by the thud of a heavy body as It struck the rocky flooring. A long sllenco followed and the alarmed girl realized that her unseen enemy must be lying unconscious where he had fallen.

But even as the knife was raised to strike, ths miracle happened. The apparently solid wall behind her suddenly gave way and Margery felt herself quickly pulled through an opening by strong, tender arms. She was vaguely conscious of being borne up a ladder and presently a gentle breeze fanned her cheek.

Weak, Nervous Women, How many times we hear of comparatively young persons passing away when they should have lived to be 70 or 80 years of age. This fatal work is usually attributed to the kidneys, as, when the kidneys degenerate, it causes The more injurious the poisons passing thru the kidneys the quicker will those noble organs be degenerated, and the sooner they decay. It is thus the wisest policy, to prevent premature old age and promote long life, to lighten the work of the kidneys. This can be done by drink-'n- g plenty of pure water all day long, and occasionally taking Annric, double strength, before meals. This can be obtained at almost any drug store.
