Metropolitan Is a limited one, and the
performance of "Boris" Is generally con

lovers. It Is, In addition, a chance to
see real dramatic action, of the highest
typo. In opera.
how would a soap bubble frolic in the
laundry suit you?"
"Oh, motherl May we really?" ex
claimed the three children in delight,
"that would suit us Just rlghtl"
"All right, then," laughed mother,
"come with me nnd, we'll beglnl"
They -went down to the big roomy
laundry and there mother scrubbed out
one of tho big tubs. "While I'm doing
this," she said, "you two boys may hunt
up three stools, and Florence, you may
get a cake of white soap and the pipes
you will find In the drawer over there."
By the tlmo the tub was ready, tho
stools were in plaqo, the soap was wait
ing and each child had a pipe.
"Just one more thing and we're ready,"
aid mother, and she pulled from a big
drawer three huge gingham aprons. "Now
put thesi on," she said, "and you can
blow all the bubbles you wish I"
The children tied the aprons under
their chins, ind then the fun began)
They made big bubbles and little
bubbles, middle-sized bubbles and every
other kind, and such fun as it wail
At first the bubbles didn't shine very
"What's the matter with these old
bubbles anyway?" asked Ned, as he
watched three go dully, one after the
other, towards the celling and then ex
plode, "I thought bubbles always shone
With bright colors!"
Mother was Just starting up the
stairs, but she heard what he said and
turned back. "Bubbles do shine some
times, but they have to have something
to shine from. They only refleot the
light. If you make a light here in the
laundry you will soon see the, difference."
The children turned on the light, and
you should have seen the bubbles flash I
Instantly they shone like fairy rainbows.
They danced and glittered and sparkled.
"Soap bubbles are like people, aren't
they, mother,'' said Florence, thought
fully. "They sblne when there's some
thing to shine aboutl" The children all
laughed and blew more bubbles.

ABOUT TRADING STAMPS.
In Syracuse a question has arisen that
Is Interesting only because It may, and
probnbly has, como up In other com
munities. Tho local pollco chief has pro
hibited tho system of giving coupons to
motion-picture patrons, among whom the
holders of lucky numbor coupons draw
prizes each week. The exhibitors who
have been using the system want to
rotallato by forcing tho local merchants
to cut out tho trading stamp scheme,
claiming tho two systems are similar.
AVlthout passing upon tho legality of
tho prlre coupon scheme. It Ib not tho
same ns tho trading stamp scheme. In
tho latter Bystem every customer gota
stamps of a certain definite value, which
are exchangeable at any tlmo for mer
chandise of equivalent value. Thero Is no
chanco or gamblo about It. In prlnclplo
It Is merely a discount allowed on tho
purchase, which discount Is taken In mer
chandise Instead of money. In the prlio
coupon schemo the majority of customers
get nothing but their admission to tho
show, but all admission fees nro taxed
a certain percentago to pay for the prize
which goes only to one. Slnco nil Join
In pnylng for tho prize it Is obvious that
they pay for what thoy do not get.

be prize enough without additional Induce

NOT for n moment did sho feel any
regret. Sho had for her uncle n cer
tain fondness, but, duo to his general
coldness, It had never developed Into real
love Tho only thing sho really did ro
grct leaving behind was tho carrier pig

Why, sho thought, how strangely tho

things about? Seized with a sudden and

wns Imposslblo to Btlr!
"Sleep!" sho heard vnguely. "Sleep."
Zudora's eyes closed Irresistibly. Wu

her forehead. Tho man's own forehead
wns covered with sweat, for this had been
a tremendous exertion of will powor. Had
the girl been able to turn ho would have

was no recognition In her eyes. Ho had

Below Storm whistled frnntlcally and
wondered whnt had thus delayed his

"do to tho window, child," he said.
Hudora got up and walked to the win

lover nnd nover mado any sign that sho
saw him If It had boon lighter ho might
havo noted tho stonlness of her look, tho
"What In heaven's nnmo has hap
pened?" murmured tho distracted lover.
At any moment Hassam All might appear
upon tho scene. Still ho waited.
Chang left the room.
"It Is done!" he said to Hassam All.
"It is something I've never been nble
to accomplish. Sho Is very strong men

of lovo," snld the oriental. "Now we
havo no tlmo to wasto upon discussing

and break In. Let us act at once. You
shall for the present become Wu Chung
and I shall remain tho servant of Hassam

In a very short tlmo tho two returned
to Zudora. They put her hat and coat on
and led her from tho room.
"Storm Sahib has gone around to the
rear!" cried the real servant.
"Goodl" said his double. To Hassam
All he said: "You and tho girl leave now,
by the front door. I'll handle your man."
"Do nothing violent." said Hassam All,
who, though ho greatly desired tho death
of Storm, did not enre to have tho affair

"Como on. then! And drive like tho

By dint of Inquiry they learned that a
Chinaman nnd a woman had been scan
entering Wu Chung's tonshop. Storm
wnitcd for ovor an hour, and as no ono
enmo out ho concluded thnt this was a
ensn for professional detectives, nnd ho
strnlghtway sought their aid. Together
thoy went over tho records of Chinatown,
but Wu Chnng was not a tong man; thero
had nevor been any opium smuggling; ho
wns ono of tho fow Chinamen down In
that crime-Infested holo who stood clean
upon tho pollco records. Still, they wero
willing to mako a thorough Investigation.
Hassam All, still disguised as Chang,
entered tho supposed tea merchant's
houso nnd found Mrs. Du noy awaltlnn
him. The woman at first thought him to
bo Chnng himself until he explained.
"Cnn you bring her out of tho trance?"
"That's tho easiest part of it. But
there's no need. Sho must remain In
this condition until long after you aro
out to sen. I don't enro If sho nover
comes out of It."
"You'ro a strango kind of undo." mused
tho womnn, wondering what was behind
this unnatural ottltudo of tho man.
"Thnt's my business," said Hassam All
gruffly. "Now, find mo a room for tho
girl. I am not going to trust to luck."
"Thero Is a walled room; tho method
of getting In and out of It Is secrot."
"I rather bellovo you can truBt me with
tho secret," snld Hassam All grimly.
"Follow mo, then."
Zudora had to be led. Sho was physi
cally capable as over, but her mind was
temporarily blank. Onco In tho walled
room, sho sat down placidly, after tho
manner of persons hypnotized, nnd stared
at her hands. It was all Hassam All
could do to resist tho desire to bring her
out of tho trance and toll her what was
going to happen, but his bump of caution
wns abnormal. She might cscapo some
whero along tho route, and thnt would
wind up tho affairs of a certain mystlo
who, for a commission, advlsod old ladles
when and how to Invest their fortunes
a commission which, by tho way, usually
consisted of nt least half of the sums in
vested. Tho real Wu Chang, In the meanwhile,
left tho houso of Hassam All at what
might be callod tho psychological mo
mont. Ten minutes later tho houso was
under tho csplonngo of a plain clothes
man. Mr. Chang, affable tea merchant,
Was driven to ono of tho uptown hotels
ho sometimes frequented. Ho wanted an
alibi. Besides this hotel was qulto near
tho hall whore the adopted son of Mills
was to mako his brilliant speech that
samo night. It was a delightful thing
to mako money with right and left hand.
But, ns has already been said, you can
not throw two stones with two hands
and hit any given target.
Chang went to the hall, took a seat
where ho could focus tho eyo of tho boy,
and waited patiently for his debut. It
must have been exceedingly dull busi
ness for a mind so keen ns Wu Chang's
to bo forced to listen to tho oratorical
spoutlngB of green young Intellects.
