Margery Golden sjddenly threw the magazine which she had been listlessly thumbing, end springing to her feet, crossed rapidly to the window of her cool, white bedroom. As she stood gazing out with unseeing eyes, a little frown of vexation puckered her forehead. From the open windows on the of the spacious living-roofloor came the subdued murmur Crst of voices. But to Margery's straining ears not a word of that low toned conference was audible.

The resentful officer of the law had conceived the idea than on more than at..-ue- (!(, one occasion Margery had aided and the Laughing Mask In slipping through his fingers, and It was for that reason she was now excluded from the deliberations where the capture of the elusive masquerader was under discussion. In anticipation of tics very state of affairs Margery had devised the Ingenious method for earning the plans of the detectives. Having ascertained that the conference was in full swing, she quickly went to a small wicker table and, taking off the telephone receiver, held Her it pressed tightly to her ear. wire was a house extension connected with the trunk line which ran into where her father and the Hviug-roothe officers were now gathered.

That's about all an' I don't see how " But Margery did not wait to hear the concluding remarks of the detective, for at this point she abruptly hung tip the receiver. Here was news of a startling character which must be Imparted to the masked guardian of her safety without loss of time. Without stopping to even catch up a hat. she slipped out of her room and down the stairway. As she tiptoed softly past the living-roothe door suddenly opened and Captain Brack-et- t and Walters stood on the threshofficer watched old. The stern-facethe slender girl as she went out of the front door and closed it behind her. Then he turned to his crestfallen subd ordinate. "Never mind doin' what I was tell-iyou, Walters," he tersely commanded. "I want you to shadow that young woman. Don't lose sight of her for a minute." So it happened that when Margery Golden paused by the mysterious lone bowlder on Seven Oaks Hill a hawk-facedetective was hidden not ten paces distant behind one of the great trees from which the ridge took its y name. He saw the girl glance about her. and then from her pursed lips came a low. thrilling call like that of a bird. After a brief interval she repeated this signal, nnd man came presently a stealthily around the side of the great bowlder. The hidden listener caught enough of what Margery Golden was saying to become aware that she was recounting, almost word for word, his own story of the escape of Jules Legar. "I have a theory of my own as to what was used to kill Jenkins in that fearful manner." the Laughing Mask was saying, "and I am going to find out tonight whether I am right or wrong. Legar's followers hnve all been wiped out with the exception of a mnn calling himself Skidmon. He was known as a brilliant scientist until he contracted the drug habit, and then, when hewas down and out, he fell in with Legar. He lives in a tumble-dowold house at the foot of the blind alley south of Washington squure. At that moment the detective, burning with zeal to make up for the escape of Jules Legar by the sudden capture of the Laughing Mask, suddenly emerged from behind the oak tree aud rapidly advanced upon the startled pair. As the Laughing Mask darted around the bowlder toward the secret door leading into the subterranean retreat. Margery planted herself directly in the path of the oncoming Walters. "You've about gone the limit this time, young woman," he snarled as he seized her slender wrist in his powerful grasp, "an we'll see what the chief thinks of your helpin that criminal make a getaway." n' d tiously raised the window nnd ished into that house of mystery. But shii quietly determined he should not be taken unawares by his enemies and quickly followed. She slipped into the empty bedroom and, warily crossing the floor, stood in spellbound wonder gazing through the open doorway. Backed, up against a bench stood the tense figure of a middle-ageman with drooping eyelids and the pasty gray complexion that betrayed the habitual use of some noxious drug. He had apparently been Interrupted in the midst of his investigations, for on the bench, just behind him, was some object protected from the light by a strip of thin toweling, a long platinum needle used in extracting germ colonies from their cultures, a compound microscope and an open notebook for recording the result of his labors. Facing the intimidated drug fiend stood the Laughing Mask. "My patience is about exhausted, Skidmon," he said to the man shrinking back against the bench, "and unless you write that confession clearing me of those crimes committed by Legar with your devilish assistance, I am going to shoot you through the head with as little compunction as though you were a mad dog. Your terrible poisons have been responsible for more than one unsolved murder nnd society will be well rid of you." This convincing threat had the desired effect, for the chemist moved sullenly toward a small writing desk standing near the window. As his reluctant pen traveled silowly over a sheet of foolscap, the Laughing Mask stood looking over his shoulder, prompting the other's delinquent memory with an occasional quiet word and the insistent menace of that revolver. The details of those abhorrent crimes, committed in cold blood by Legar for the sole purpose of setting the police upon his enemy, had practically been completed when a shrill penetrating whistle sounded from the alley. The Laughing Mask turned quickly to the nearby window and, throwing back th shutters, leaned out and d stoop-shouldere- attract his attention h cauvan- log Mask, wlin the full intention of dispatching that sworn enemy with his own hands, he gave a gasp of Incredulous amazement as It dawned upon him that his Intended victim had completely disappeared. It flashed Into his mind that the Laughing Mask might have recovered sufficiently to have crawled up the short flightof cellar steps, and, hurrying outside, he commenced a systematic search of the dark corners where a man in desperate straits might endeavor to hide. He had hardly left the cellar when the pile of threadbare carpet showed signs of sudden agi tation, and, in obedience to certain commands Issued in painfully broken whispers, two spectral figures emerged from under that singular refuge and glided toward the stairway leading to the upper story, where the laboratory was located. d d ever-read- y iur-tivel- yellow-maske- d I H rlllH Ja d that fcionient Margery beard the n new arrival, and again it 'aptain Bracket t's voice which ren lied her as he impatiently questioned the deteciive who had just entered.

Captain Brackett, fuming with anger, tried his utmost to wring from her the secret of the bowlder, but his rapidly volleyed questions failed to break her sphitixlikc silence. Finally her loving but sorely tried father locked her In her bedroom to prevent her further Interference. Hastily going to her im- prompfu dictaphone, Margery heard the voice of Walters repeating what the Laughing Mask had said about fKjiimoii. uie iusl oi iii'niir a ueiicn- men. When he bad finished, the blatant tones of Captain Brackett came over the thread of copper. "Our best move will be to watch the house of this Skidmon," he announced decisively, "an' when our man comes along we'll nab hlra. If we're playin' in luck we might get Legar in the same dragnet." As Margery replaced the receiver she realized the' Laughing Mask was threatened with grave danger. In some way she must warn him. But there seemed no possibility of escaping from the bedroom. Then a sadden scheme flashed into her mind, which she hastened to put into execution. To mislead her father she tied the bed sheet to the window sill, and when that gentleman discovered the supposed escape, he ran to the shrubbery beneath the window. Then Margery stole out of the closet and silently went her way in her car. As Margery paused In front of a dismal old rookery she suddenly perceived in the moonlight a shadowy form mounting steadily upward on e ladder.

He seemed doomed to sure destruction, but fate decreed the springy branch of an elm tree should catch that hurtling body, and the force of his fall was broken when, limp and unconscious, he dropped a second later onto the stone flagging by the cellar doorway. As the moon swung across the heavens its pale light disclosed the still form of the unconscious Laughing Mask lying under the laboratory window from which the Infuriated scientist had flung him. A man, who came slinking out of the shadows, saw the inert figure and bent over it with a savage exHe glanced clamation of triumph. furtively about him, and. throwing back the bulkhead doors leading into the cellar, backed down the short flight of steps, dragging the Laughing Mask after him, like a spider dragging a fly into some dark recess. Legar seemed strangely at home In his dark and gloomy surroundings, after letting the Laughing Mask drop heavily to the cement flooring, his groping fingers quickly found a battered lantern hanging from a rusty hook. This feeble Illumination showed the cellar to be piled with all sorts of discarded household furniture, including a pUe of worn-ou- t carpeting near where the masked man was lying. As Legar bent over the helpless figure a faint noise came from the stairway leading to the floor above. lie instantly straightened up and made a search for the noises. From under the pile of carpeting two pair of long arms suddenly stretched out toward the silent form of the Laughing Mask, and, quickly seizing him by the feet and shoulders, dragged him under the frayed folds of that ancient floor covering.

If one wishes to change the type of his live stock he will rind various roads open to him and he may be confused as to which to take. First and most common, a sire of the desired type may be bought for the herd and year after year improvements may go on in this munner. But It is at best a tedious process and, except in the Improvement of the dairy herd, It had better be avoided. Life at best is not long enough to observe very marked results by this method. A much better method in the case of beef cattle, sheep and swiue, if many are kept, Is to provide a few females of the desired type and also a male for them, the progeny of which shall be kept while the old type are gradually distiosed of. It is surprising how quickly the type of the herd will be changed. Then again it is possible to sell off the entire lot of cattle or other live stock on the farm and to procure those of the desired type at one time. This is the ideal method if it is financially practicable. The one great thing to be desired in a herd is uniform excellence and the easiest and least expensive method of bringing this about is the one to be adopted.
