WASHINGTON, Jan. IS. Henry B. Joy,
of Detroit, was cnllcd upon today by
Chairman Glass, of the House Banking
and Currency Committee, to resign as a
member of the Chicago Federal Reserve

Zudora and the fortune from the mine,
which later prows to oe worth $10,000,000,
are left to the guardlanehip of Frank
Keene, a circus man and the brother of
Zudora'a mother. Zudora, giving promise
of great beauty, reaches the age of 18.
The uncle, loho ha set himself up as a
Hindu mxistio, and is known as Hassam
Alt, decides in his greed that Zudora must
die before she comes inti possession of her
great fortune so that i may be left to
htm, the nextaf kin, ani he prevails upon
the girl to leave her money in his hands
three vtars longer and to say nolhinp to
any one about the fortune. Hassam Alt
sees an obstacle to his scheme in the per
son of John Storm, a young lawyer for
whom Zudora has taken a fancy, and he

her tnind. Storm comes to ask Hassam
Alt for the hand of his niece. At flrst the
crystal gater will not listen to the pro
posal, but Zudora Insists that if she can
not marry Storm she will marry no one.
"TVert, mell." said Hassam All, "if you

Zudora, using the knowledge pained
from years of association with her unclt,
unravtls a series of baffling mysteries.
A VnlUd States submarine and a collier
belonging to the Starr firm for which
Storm Is attorney, are bloton UP, appar
ently through the agency of a ray which
mtlts metal under water.
Looking for a photographer for Zudora,
Hassam All finds the inventor of the de
structive ray. He Blackmails him into
agreeing to commit murder. Zudora visits
the photographer, whose studio is beneath
the inventor's home.
EPISODE VTI CONTINUED.
THE Inventor, true to his class and
kind, instantly forgot his personal
danger. His whole soul waa bent upon
one servloe to humanity a world without
war. And he was positive that he alone
possessed the thing that would moke war
so horrible, so annihilating, that hu
manity would no longer dare to make
war. Presently the crackling of electric
ity was heard, and that strange odor
which always follows tho path of light
ning filled the room. Far out in the bay
was a aeries of empty barges being re
turned from tho deep sea dump. The
Inventor turned his ray upon that, after
carefully measuring tho distance, some
thing after the manner of a olvll engineer,
There was a remarkable ranga finder oa
th top of the) machine, but this the) In
renter used only when ohjeota were) bo

The two men watched tha rear barge
Presently It listed, then it began to sag,
and a cloud of smoko buret forth from
"Good heavenst" gasped Hassam All.
"Did you strike that barge under water?1
"Ohl no. I am powerless against wood
underlwater, but all metals are Ilka bo
"What aro you going to do with It Tr
Hassam All was dared by the colossal
cower of the machine,
"When the time comes I am going to
present it to tho TJnlUd States Govern
ment." "Man, there are millions and millions
"I am a patriot," said the Inventor
It woe aboot this time that ZuSoml ar
rived at the photographer's studio on the
floor below. At tho sound of the Jnterior
bell the photographer pane out of his
dark room. To Zudora he did not looa
like any photographer she had ever seen.
His ble head was covered with a shook

I don't take the average run of photo
graphs." His voice was energetic. There
waa a Teutonic burr to it, for all that hU
name waa Green. But Zudora did nji
notice' this at the time. "You see,' he
went on. "I'm something of an Inventor.
One of these days I'm going to revoru
tlonUe photography. Now, If you 1 Just

did not bother with any plates. Instead,

object and listened. Hassam AH was not

face of Green, and he muttered an oath

"Now, then, yoit waa fun length cs

"Tou've eome to the right mm. toeo."
He took a pleee of wood from WW

From a shelf he took down a beaker

pUce of wood. Than he took erase liquid
from aneshw bottle and sp4 If over

Ing the square In front of Zudora's face.
Next he threw on some dark liquid.
"Behold!" he said enthuslafltlcally.
"Why," she cried, astounded. "1 never
saw anything like that!"
"Few have," he declared. "Now, come
tomorrow at S and I'll have six for you.
When I can mako this cheap I'll put
tho average camera into the dust blnl"
And Zudora believed him.
Meantime, the secret service was bur
rowing and finding nothing; the Starr
Company was still at loggerheads with
Its men, and Storm was striving with
might and main to adjust the differences.
Two moro colliers had gone to the bot
Tho day that Zuroda came for her
photographs was to be a led letter day
among her experiences. Hassam All had
preceded her, and while she was con
ferring with the photographer he was
working to gain his ends. That the In
ventor Bhould bo made the scapegoat was
nothing to him. He saw nothing but
untold millions in tho near distance.
But, unfortunately for his schemes, he
had reckoned without Fol Green's
Hassam All, despite tho Inventor's pro
tests, had cut an apertur.e through the
floor so that he could see what was going
on In the room below. At a favorable
moment he thrust a revolver toward the
"Now!" he whispered.
"It Is murder!"
"Now, or I wlllshoot!" Hassam All
had taken all precaution to disguise him
self. The elevator boy would never swear
that such and such a man had asked di
rections, and the law would never be
able to find such a man. "Hurry!"
Just before this, however, Zudora, being
alone for a moment, thought she would
try an experiment herself. She picked
up one of the beakers to learn If the sen
sitizing liquid contained ether, when the
bottle slipped from her hand and crashed
to the floor. Almost Instantly she saw
two faces form upon the liquid. She
looked up quickly. In time to see two
heads suddenly withdraw and heard a
rattle of wood as the aperture's covering
fell Into place
What could thnt mean? She stepped
back to the wnll She waited breathlessly,
but nothing happened. Her flrst thought
was that some one was trying to steal
the photographer's secret, and she became
determined to frustrate this base plan.
When, Haesaiu All looked again In or
der to dlreot the ray of the Inventor Zu
dora was gone! She had evidently seen
something. He felt an urgent need of get
ting away at once.
Oddly enough, she passed htm in the
upper hall as he was making for tho
elevator. So Intent was she upon her own
quest that she gave the man but a pass
Inventors are earelees generally in all
things save that upon which their
thoughts are set. It never .occurred to
the Inventor of the destructive ray to
lock the door after the flight of tho man
who professed to be his friend, but who
In reality waa the worst enemy ho had.
Bo Zudora had no difficulty In entering
the room. She did so as noiselessly as a
What she saw confused her at first
There was the noble bay and the ships
going down to the sea. But what signi

all these strange things about him would
oontemplate the robbing of another man's
secret. She heard the roan mutter a few
words. Her heart missed a beat! Qui
etly as she had entered she stole forth.
What should she dot How should she
act In face of this tremendous discovery?
She must see Storm and ask his advice.
The inventive photographer had not
been Inactive all this time. He sensed
danger when he saw that weird photo
graph on the floor. He determined his
actions at once. If he could not have
the secret of that magical ray for the
fatherland no one should have It,
atnnr, naa arreatly excited when Zudora
disclosed her discoveries. Together they
went to the local secret servloe office.
