roaiiy distinguished last act set, thrown
into a story about a honeymoon that bo
enmo a total eclipse on account of nn In
nocent kiss that the brldo overheard.
item C. Tho joyous spectacle of an
American chorus girl attempting to re-
?fti ' !? .Bas'' rvo onl-' a "I'Penny bit
with a hole In it."
But, of course, tho main thing Is
Bam Bernard and his Piggy Hoggcn
noimor tho Hoggenhelmcr. It comes
pretty closo to a real figure of com
edy, this rich Mr. Hoggenhelmcr, of
Park lane, who visits Hats ho doesn't
Intend to rent, Juit because he has learned
that rich men nro always bored and on
me looiiout xor odd amusements. Mr.
Bernard contributes a good deal moro
than pretzel-twisted English and four
oily little curls on his forehead, -which put
to shame anything now extant In fem
inine fashions. Ho gots tho man's In
nocont egotism over In fine shnpo.
Piggy brags with a natural pride of tho
fact that with the aid of his money lie
"knows a lot of people nrfd they'll soon
know him." His volco. Is oily with tho
money In which ho almost literally rolls.
Ho pursues tho fomtnlne with something
near tho avidity that ho bestows on
money. Mr. Bernard's characterization
Is bo unpleasantly perfect that whon ho
wins Miss King her remark that "after
all, Piggy has such a good heart," doesn't
at all convince. It seems a more reflec
tion on the rest of his anatomy.
It Is real acting that Mr. Bernard does.
Ho proves It when ho gots away with
that Indecent If plauslblo question, "Who
paid the rent for Mrs. Blp van Winkle
when Rip van Wlnklo went away?" Tho
inquisitive onthuslosm of Piggy la so
entirely "In character" that tho song,
which tho late B. F. Keith barred from
all his theatres loses a great part of Its
nolsomeness. Which Is nn undcnlablo
feat
And don't forget that Mr. Bernard Is
funny alt tho same. Ho makes his own
company laugh, and that's a very good
test.
Puppets for Chicago
Chicago's Llttlo Theatre, where "Ana
tol" and "Sophocles" have alternated, Is
never happy unless It Is attempting the
Impossible. So now that It has made
Shaw's "Philanderer" Into a substantial
success, It Is trying somo morning per
formances of mnrionettCB.
Tho Chicago Llttlo Theatre Puppets
(probably Incorporated) made their tlrst
bow last week In a fairy play straight
from China, and called by the happy and
promUIng tltlo of "Tho Deluded Dragon."
Various notables of tho Windy City sup
plied music, scenery and plot, while a
real sculptress, Kathleen Wheeler, mod
eled the particular gentry of this piece.
Outside Italian marionette theatres In
the slums this Is probably tho first ven
ture In America at something that has
been vastly popular in Germany and Rus
sia. Munich's pupppct theatre enjoyed
a reputation that gave It a place In all
the announcements and advertisements
by which the city authorities sought to
attract American tourists.
Tho Playgoer's "Omar"
A "book" and "lyrlca" not at all high
brow,
A bunch of tunes, some chorus girls,
and thou,
Besides them, singing In this wilderness;
Ah, wilderness Is operetta now.

EPISODE VII.
THD PHANTOM OP THE FUTUP.E.
A OREAT crowd was nssemblod boforo
tho bulletin boards In Times Square.
It was a remarkably Borloua looking
crowd, too. There was much dubious
shaking- ot heads and shrugging of shoul
ders. It was not a baseball crowd, not
an aggregation of sports awaiting the re
sults at tho far-off raco tracks.
"What do you know about that?"
"Give mo a boat that floats on top of
tho waterl"
"Take It from mo, some one got fresh
with tho torpodo tube. Wo'ro not at -war
with any ono."
"But what's this ray business? I never
heard of anything- llko that before."
Sandwiched In between a bulletin an
nouncing a German check in Poland nnd
another telling- of tho French being re
pulsed at Dlxmudo were a fow lines which
stirred all America for a fortnight. Tho
news was thrco days' old, bocause the
Oovernment had not Been fit to disclose
tha catastrophe to tho public until they
had located the cause. A submarine had
been blown up In tho bay. There had
been no sign of either mlno or torpedo,
as one of the surviving olllccrs took oath.
Thoy had been skimming along with only
half speed, when suddenly ono of the en
gineers complained of suffocation, com
plained that ho had touched the port slda
with his hand fand burned It badly. The
commanding oMlcer signaled to Die engine
room to stop.
Tho order had hardly reached tho engine
room when tho explosion occurred. All
but five of the crow wro killed. It was a
mighty sorlous business to the United
fitatos Government. It might have been
puroly accidental; It might liavo been
dono with sinister purpose Tho Navat
Department was, In the parlanco of the
day, up In the air.
Subsequent Investigation showed that
the port sldo, near tho torpedo tubo un
fortunately loaded for target practice
had been melted, absolutely melted, after
tho manner of motal oxposed to some
terrlfla heat. And all this with tho plates
protected by tho water. An agency that
had been capablo of sending a heat ray
through waterl Tills hit of news not only
aroused tho United States, but set war
rind Europe by the oars. Beoret agents
from Germany nnd Russia camo to wow
York, with millions to their credit. Dut
neither they nor tho horn socrot oonrloe
could find out anything. Tou cannot
track the going or coming of tho wind;
you cannot follow an ocean ripple.
In an lntorvlow tho Secretary of War
declared that the Government had not
been approached by any Inventor of a
heat ray. All they could do woa to wait
and sco If tho maglcion had struck; acci
dentally nnd experimentally or with
deadly Intent.
For three days tho newspapers ran
scrim heads, but nothing further de
veloped. Tho foreign agents wastod their
gold and tho homo ogonts their time.
Thon camo the blowing up of ono of tho
J. B. Starr colliers, or rathor tho sinking.
Tho plates showed tho same terrible
agoncy which had destroyed tho sub
marine. But this time thoro seemod to
be a. slight clue. Tho Btarr pcoplo woro
on a strike, and It -was deduced that somo
personal enemy had destroyed tho collier.
A collier had been anchored In the
vicinity of tho submarine, and it seomed
qulto posslblo that tho Inventor hod
thrown his ray toward tho collier and the
submarlno had had tho misfortune to
pass In betweon.
Immediately the Government announced
that It had received a communication
from the inventor, Btattng that ho de
plored the fatal accident to the sub
marine. It was postmarked Jorsey City.
Tho secret agents went over that city
as with a fine comb. Nothing was found.
Tho leaders of the Starr striko were, per
sistently shadowed, but nothing enmo of
this endeavor. It was oven ascertained
that tho strikers were as deeply mysti
fied as any ono.
John Storm was tho attorney for tho
Starr company. On the day after tho
sinking of tho collier he received a note
typewritten and postmarked Boston that
tho collier had been sunk accidentally.
Immediately ho went down to the 3arr
offices and laid the hot before the di
rectors. "Gentlemen, there la a madman somt
whero In New fork city. This postmark
merely proves to mo that the man ferent
to Boston or tha express purpose b(
sending the note from there. I honestly
believe that it has nothing; te do with the
otrlke."
"I Wish tho Lord wo knew, Storm,"
said th.o Vice president. "If thlg man can
burn steel under water ho haa In his hands
the terrible power of being able to de
molish tho whole cJtj If tho whim strikes
him. They tell mo that Wellington has
gone orasy over the affair. They'd give
a million for tho secret, If only to tak
it out of tho hands of an Irresponslblo
person.
"Shall I send this note to the secret
service people, to compare It with the
other?" asked Storm.
"Not a bad Idea."
Twnntyfour hours later Storm received
ft call from the secret service people).
The two notes had been written upon the
sama maohlne. It was a cul-du-sac.
Every ono seemed to blunder Info a blind
alloy. Sovornl times Storm thought of
Zudora, but ho resisted tho Impulse. Ho
did not oaro to liavo her tangled up
in an affair llko this. Ah, if aho would
but tako his advice marry him openly
and defy that sly devil who oallod him
self her undo! Four different times tho
man had tried to kill him; but the baslo
cause for this dsalro of his death was
tho most putzltng mystery of all, Why
should Hossam All wish his doath so
earnestly na to risk hit own security In
tho effort to accomplish his ends? Bo
far It had never occurred to Storm that
Hassara All might bo -wishing tho death
of Zudora also.
Btojm and Zudom wero having tea nt
tho Claridgo one aftornoon, and -wheri
they wore through sho suggested that
thy take a look at tho bulletin board.
Every ono was war news mad.
"Lookl" sbn nrlnd. nhaw Vi-n m..,i,

"If s a pity," said Storm. "That com
mander was a bravo sailor. Well, he'll
have a nlohe m history all hla own. Dy

"What is it?"
"Another Starr collier gono downl GlrJ.
can you got baok homo alona? I must go
down to the Starr office at onco. This Is
no accident"
But there was no evldoncs this time of
any mysterious hoat ray. An infernal
maahlno had been hidden In the engine
room, In tho starboard bunkers, and had
blown a great holo through tho plates.
It was qulto evident that the strikers had
taken ndvantago of tho confusion. After
this notUIng moro was heard of tho heat
ray. And by nnd by the public forgot,
aa It always does, and turned once more
to the ever-Increasing war bulletins.
