From Fort Stanley comes an hero-
epic of lake and air that sounds
ke a tale by Jules Verne or JosephI
onrad. The story is glimpsed fromt
ie few decipherable 4entries n thet
ater-soaked log of the A-6698, the
-fated balloon piloted by Lieuts. L.
Rot and T. B. Null in the naticoialG
.imination race that began at In-G
anapolis, July 4. .
The fishermen of Port Stanley, trac-1
g the log as best they can, believe
ey ^ave reconstructed the story
the flight, the storm, the wreck-
g of the balloon, and the death of
e. two officers. A storm on Thur-
ay night or Friday morning drove the1
.g bag perilously close to the waters
the lake. The two lieutenants toss-
d overboard every bit of ballast andz
ill the bag, caught in the fury of1
e storm, sanledown toward the wat-
'. Clothing, everything remaining3
at, could be thrown overboard, were
ien discarded but the danger stilli
Leaened. Then Lieutenant Null,
aped overboard, giving himself as hu-j
an ballast in an attempt to save the
fe of Lieutenant Roth, the pilot.
The heroio sacrifice same to naughtf
ir the bag, buffeted by the gale, wast
ragged through the water and Roth
as tossed about inside the basketc
ntil he drowned. The basket with1
1e body of Lieutenant, Roth has been
covered. But scores of small craft

ce of Lake Erie for the body of the

Chap. I
The harsh clanging of a bell awak-
ened Nik Arter from his metaphor.
He sprang from his mawriss chair
and before the door wias trowed open
to admit a stranger he was bending
over a table with his back to the
door, apparently carousing a paper.
But in reality he was'staring into a
little mirror which showed him a tall,
gaunt, sad looking man who stood
waiting the attention of the great
detective. Nikolas Arter swung about
facing the stranger.
"What can I do for you ?" he asked
suavely, for by now he was assured
that his visitor was perfectly harmless.
Just as the stranger was about to ans-
wer Nik Arter strode swiftly to the
door and as he gave the knob a twist
to the left the door swung open, al-
lowing his ,landlady to - fall on her
face on the floor
"Always peeking," muttered the de-
tective as he restored the outwitted
landlady to her feet and escorted her
from the room just as he had done
every time he had had avisitor for the
last ten years.
The great detective stooped to flick
a dust from his tweed trowser cuffs.
No sooner had he bent over, however,
than he received a stunning blow on
tie cerium, felling him semi-senseless.
The tall stranger grabbed a package
which the mailman had just brought
and was still awaiting Nik unopened,
and sprang through the closed win-
dow, taking much of the glass with
"Skads" groaned the man-hunnter,
as he lept to his good feet and grab
bing his trusty six-shooter and fore-
an-aft peaked cap he was ready for
anything. Leaping gracefully (for in
his younger days the skill of one Doc-
tor Nay had learned him to'block'and
tackle), he cleared the broken pane
and dashed down the street waiving
his gun and warming it up by shooting
holes in peoples straw hats as he
whizzed by.
Rounding acorner onto East Uni-
versity avenoo he came face to back
with the flee-er. The mighty arm of
justice was stretching out to grasp its
Up one street and down another the
chase kept on. Night lowered its
grimy paws over this little town which
tho colled an harbor was really but a
cove in the great Ilpron River. They
had been running for three hours
straight: Nik was just about to light
a cigarette when he saw his man
dart into what appeared'to be a empty
house to the left.
After a glance at its deserted win-
dows the great detective hurdled the

rickety stairs and grasping the door
which gave to his touch, he stepped
into the utter darkness within. He
heard the door close itself behind him
with a metallic click. He dropped his
hand into his right pocket! But an-
other hand, a cold, slimy, hand was
alredy there. He tried to grasp the
hand as it was removed carrying with
it Nik's trusty six-shooter, but in
Just then there appeared not fifteen
feet in front of the detective a tall,
luminious and withal ghostly figure,
which swayed ominiously. In its up-
raised hand it carried a gleeming
dagger! Not to be phazed, the nearly
feinting, Nik charged at the figure.
But when he reached it it dissolved
and he fell headlong into what seemed
to be empty darkness.
He felt himself falling, falling....

(By Leo J. Hershdorfer)
New York, July 12.-"And the for-
tunate shall be wealthy, and the wise
shall be elected to Phi Beta Kappa!"
So runs the slogan with which am-
bitious parents fill the minds of their
young sons about to enter college.
Phi Beta Kappa is set up as the aim
of all things scholarly. It is an em-
blem of distinction, a token of honor.
So let these young sons set their
minds on this holy of holies, that the
hearts of their parents might be joy-
ful and glad.
During the course of examination
of newly-arrived immigrants, Commis-
sioner Curran, who is in charge of
the tedious work, found occasion to
reject a young Italian, who was refus-
ed permission to enter this great coun-
try of ours because of illiteracy.
As the sorrowing son of Romulus-
was leaving the examing room, Com-
missioner Curran observed something.
bright and dazzling dangling from
the watch chain of the rejected one'
Upon closer inspection, the commis-
sioner announced, in a tone of surprise
and amazement.
"Why, that's a Phi Beta Kappa key!"
He paused a moment, then, "where did
you get it?" he asked.
The Italian youth replied through
an interpreter, "I bought it from a
man who said it was the key which
would ,unlock America. Isn't it any
The brave commissioner staggered,
then recovered his official poise, and
in his answer sent a message of en-
couragement to ambitious parents
whose'sons go to college, "Not on this
case, except to confirm my suspicions
of some of my classmates who won
similar keys when I didn't."
Are New Yorkers wide-awake? Are
they keenly interested in world af-
fairs? Does the Ruhr district situa-
tion hold concern for them. What
significance do they attach to the out-
come of the Near East fracas?
A vaudeville actor in a New York
theater announced to his audience that
if they would call out the events of
importance he would put them into
rhyme Here are sme'f the "import-
ant" events:
"Henry Ford for president" (This
brought a laugh.)
"Will Jack Dempsey give Gibbons
a' return match?"
"Will the Yankees win the pennant?"
"Bootlegging." (Applause,- turning
to hearty laughter when the next hug-
gestion was made.)
"Police, and Mayor Hylan." (Cat-
calls and hisses.)
"Al Smith for president." (Wild
shouting and stamping, of feet.)
Twilight and Battery Park. Hund-
reds of tenement dwellers sprawled
out on the grass, seeking refuge in the
cool breezes which come from the
ocean, cloak-makers and foundry
workers. The ship's orchestra play-
ing "Annie Laurie." On the shore two
tittle girls of dark complexion danc-
ing to the tune. An old man, sitting
on a park gench, drops his newspa-
per to watch the dancers. The boat
leaves the harbor, gliding majestically
down the bay. But the little girls do
not stop dancing-the old man has
produced a harmonica, on which he
plays old melodies for them.
A trainp walks about, picking up
stray newspapers, in which he wraps
up an old, torn overcoat, relic of
wintry days. With this for a pil-
low, he lies down under a tree. The
Battery is his summer resort.
Even though the United States is
out of the running in the competitive

field of whiskey distilling, a Pittsburg
house received a grand prize at the
Brazilian Centennial for having the
best whiskey in the world. Pretty
good for a country with the lid shut
-Bring back a few drops .of the Falls
for your friends who have never seen
them, for every one cannot be privil-
eged to take the trip to Niagara.
Now Jack Dempsey has another
contender ready to render the chal-
