I WAS sorry to hear that Fritz Drayton
had been wounded In the recent St.
Mlhlel battle. He is a lieutenant In the
313th Infantry, of the same division as
Ben Pepper and Harry Ingersoll, both of
whom were killed In action. Lieutenant
Drayton was named for his uncle Fred
crick Meigs, but is usually called Fritz.
However, since the. war with -Germany,
I unde.-stand that Lieutenant Drayton de
cidedly prefers to be called Fred.
No "Fritz" for him! His mother.
Mrs. Robert Coleman Drayton, received
a telegram stating that he was slightly
wounded. And really In these days
of death and sorrow It must be ut
most a joy to know that' one's son Is
wounded so that he must be out of the
heat of battle for a time at least. And
so wounded that If alt goes well there will
be nothing to fear about that wound.
Frederick Drayton Is a brother of Emjen
Drayton, who was named for his grand
father the late Colonel Emlen Meigs of
this city. Emlen Is also In the service.
He Is a cousin of the four sons of Mr.
and Mrs. William Drayton, who are all
,ln the service; Bill with Base Hospital
Jto. 10, Harry, with the air, John, with a
trench-mortar battery and -Newbold In
some othec branch. They are all splen
did men and citizens I can assure you.
DID you know that Lieutenant and Mrs.
Crawford Madeira are receiving con
gratulations on the birth of a son? He
was born on Saturday. Sarah has been
living down In Brownsville, Tex., ever
ejnee her marriage last year, and came
up with her mother Mrs. Lewis Ncllson
.at the end of the summer. She has Just
recovered from an attack of Influenza,
but fortunately It didn't turn Into pneu
monia, as so many of the cases do.
Jl1 1TTLE Katherlne Welsh's death from
-' pneumonia which followed upon her
'attack of Influenza, was very sad, was It
not? She was only thirteen and a dear
child. Her father the late Samuel Welsh
died -some ten or twelve years ago, and
her mother since married T. Henry Dixon.
Katherlne was a sister of Marls Welsh,
who married Louis Madeira and of Emily
.Welsh, who is studying nursing at Camp
pix. The Dtxons live In Chestnut Hill
'and It was at their home there that Kath
ierlne was taken HI.
ANOTHER sad death Is that of English
Dallam of Germantown. He w. s tho
husband of that charming Southern girl
'rLlly West. They were both taken down
'with Influenza last week and English con
tracted pneumonia. He .died on Sunday
after a brave fight. Mrs. Dallam Is still
Jvery 111 arthelr home Wlssahlckon ave

.young married couples in Germantown
who were better liked than English Dal

THE GILDED MAN
By CLIFFORD SMYTH
CHAPTER XVIII (Continued)
At another time this sudden isolutlon
would have been alarming. But the many
strange adentures experienced during the
last few hours had necustomed t'na to dan
ger, so that tho disappearance of Sajlpona
served merely to' arouse her to a keener
sense of her surroundings. Her faith In
this beautiful Indian, moreover, was not
easily shaken. In spite of the repellent at
titude shp had llrit nssumeQ toward her
Treachery from such a source, It seemed to
her, was Inconceivable,
Stepping back from the direct rnys of
the great ball of flre. the manifestations of
whose mysterious power had until then ab
sorbed her attention. Una found herself In
the midst of a throng of people, all of them,
apparently, watching her. By their dress,
slmplo and flowing as that worn by the fol
lowers of Anltoo, she perceived these were
cave men nnd women, some forty or fifty In
number, each one standing motionless along
the wall farthest from her. With heads
bent forward and arms outstretched toward
the center of tho court, whero Una stood,
they appeared to be engaged in some sort of
devotional exercise, the visible object of
which was a grent rouml disk of gold set In
the tesselated pavement that flnshed beneath
the light pouring upon It from above.
Inlaid within this dk, nt the outer rim
of which he had been standing a moment
before. Una could now discern cabalistic
flcures wrought In emeralds whose deep
effulgence was In striking contract with the
hazo of rolden light surrounding them. The
Intricate design formed by these ficure,s was
dlffloult to trace, but that each figure, and
the pattern Into which It was woven, bore
a mystical meaning was suggested by the
reverence with which this wholo glittering
pool of light was regarded by the silent
Eagerly Una scanned the white-robed wor
shipers before her, hoping that among them
sho might discover David. Not finding him.
she sought Sajlpona, with the same disap
pointing 'result at first. Then her gaze,
wandering away from these strange faces,
rested up--n a slightly elevated platform at
one end of the court. There? beneath a gold
and gem-encrusted canopy, seated upon a
massive throne of pure crystal, she beheld
the Indian queen.
From the first Una had felt tho spell of
her beauty, but Its force had been tempered
by the flashes of anger, the suspicion, the
disdain that hair nlternatelv marked their
Intercourse. Now. although arrayed and
staged, as It were. In all the splendor, belong
ing to her hlirh station with crown nnd
Fcepter and rlltterlng robe of state this
proud beauty had softened to an nlmost girl
ish loveliness, wistful, touched with a melan
choly as hopeless as It was appealing. That
she was a queen, aloof from those about her,
Fe,emed strangely pathetic. Nor did this
expression of sheer womanliness change as
her eyes met Una's. Across the width of
the great presence chnmber a mvsterlous
wave of sympathy seemed to bind these two
together. Completing Its wordless message,
Sajlpona arose nnd stood expectantly while
Una nnpronched, the throng before her silent
ly falling back until she reached the foot of
the throne. Then, with hands clasped In
ereetlmr. the two women faced each ether.
the enmity that flJst had sundered them
apparently forgotten, or, at least, held In
check by some subtler, purer feeling. Araln
Una wondered If this could bo genuine If
the suspicion with wmen sne naa Deen
regarded at first might not still lurk behind
this outward graclousness. Little versed In
the arts of dissimulation, however, nnd apt
to take for current coin whatever offered' of
friendliness, she accepted this" unlooked-for
warmth of welcome with undisguised grnt
tude. Sajlpona drew her gently forward until
tho two stood side by side on the platform
facing the great court, the silent groups of
sttendants below thenv The dazzling light,
the flashing splendor of cojumned walls and
mulled celllnrr. the whlte-rnbed figures, the
Jeweled throne, furnished forth a fairy spec
tacle not easily forgotten.
"These are my people," said Sajlpona '
proudly. "They will protect you as they
As If In answer fo her assurance the wait
ing courtiers, absorbed until now In- the con-'
templatlon of the mystical figures within the
circle of light of their feet, slowly turned
and made crave obeisance before the two
women standing In front of the throne. Fol
lowing this sign of submission, they came
forward as If expectant of some further com
mand. Sajlpona smilingly watched tha effect
of this ceremony on her companion.
"Ah! It Is not here as In Bogota," she
said, "or In the world where you ceme
from, far from Bogota. You think all this
that you see Is unreal a dream, perhaps, ly
people are so different from yours and all
these many years they live forgotten,
I have lived In Bogota. There they flo not
know of this great' cave that belonged to
the ancient rulers of the mountains. Thejr
don't know that am oUeen hejor of this
nalace that Is mine and the light that burns
like the sun. Ah I I woiyler what your wise
uncle will, say wben he sees our sun I"
Sallnona laughed noiselessly with the half
concealed delight that a child hugs to Itself
when It hides some simple secret from the
eves of Its elders. Una. more bewildered
han ever at this allusion to Lelghton. sought
vainly for a reasonable explanation of the
marvels surrounding her.
"Mv tmclel" she exclaimed. "How do you
Vnow that he is wise and he Is! and that

this city at 1327 Spruce ttreet
Again Sajlpona laughed.
"Remember." he said, "this Is not Bogota.
Out there It Is all very wonderful, very great.
Yoji have the sky, the sun, tho stars. The
mountains stretch away ns far as the eye
can see: there are plains, cities; and there
are buildings greater than any we have here.
This Is a toy world, you will say, even when
you think Mme things In It very wonderful.
But you do not guess the half of what Is
here. In this world my peoplo have lived In
secret for centuries. They have discovered
things that even the wisest of your peoplo
know nothing ,of. We have eyes that see
ever) thing that hnppens In our world of
stone, eyes that pl,rce through the stones
themselves. I knew when you came Into
our kingdom; I watched ou when you passed
through the great gate where the others were
fighting. But you don't believe me. Come,
I will show you,"
Sajlpona gavo her hand to the astonished
girl and the two stepped down from tho
platform whero they were standing and
made their way to tho center of the court.
Here the great circle of light cast by the
ball of fire overhead gleamed at their feet
like an unruffled pool of sun-kissed water.
At the rim of this circle they halted, Sajl
pona gently restraining her companion, who.
In her eagerness, would have passed on.
"Look there on the floor," she said. "Your
eyes may not be as ours: perhaps you will
havo to wait before tai can see. But It
will come you will see."
Una remembered how she had heard and
laughed of magicians who pretended to read
the future by gazing Into a crystal globe.
Tho experiment to which sho was now In
vited seemed lllto that, only hero It was ap
parently a huge mirror of reflected light that
she was told to watch, while no word had
been said of finding therein a revelation of
things to come. Nor rruld she see anything
In this mirror nt first. Waves of light,
tongues jot' Icnplng flame, passed over tho
polished surface of the metal, here darting
off In long zigzag streaks, there forming a
sort of pool of molten, quivering fluores
cence, as the physicists call It, varying in
size and color, then vanishing utterly. Much
tho same appearance Una remembered hav
ing seen on tho surface of n copper kettlo
when subjected to Intense heat. But In this
case there wns no perceptible heat to ac
count for the phenomenon, which was rather
electric In Its fantastic wcavlngs a redupli
cation, on a gigantic scale, of the ifaverlng
finger of light that she had watched play,
with such fatal results, on her uncle's elec
The resemblance, recognized with a shud
der. Intensified heialnterest. The succession
of marvels through which she had been pass
ing prepared her for anything. In her pre
sent mood, nothing would have surprised her.
"What Is it? What is It7" she asked
Sajlpona followed the twisting maze of fig-'
urcs before them with unwonted 'anxiety. Her
usua calm demeanor was gone. She arpear
ed to be 'reading something the purport of
which was not at all to her liking.
"Look !" she exclaimed. "There he Is. They
have let him pass through the gate. He is
coming here. Anltoo's men nre with him."
To Una the words were meaningless. Yet
she knew that her companion was reading,
or, rather, witnessing something that wns
passing before her own eyes, and that hence
should have been quite as visible to her If
only she had the clue. But this she did not
have. She recognized the hint of danger. She
knew that In some way Sajlpona had caught
a glimpse of some one whom io counted an
enemy. She felt that this1 person-was In some
way connected wltji her own party : and then
the thought of Raoul Arthur flashed across
her mind, at the same time that his veritable
Image so It seemed stood forth In waVcrlng
lines of light at her feet.
"Save David from him!" she cried In
voluntarily. "You see him you know him J"
"He oamo In with us. He Is there look!

T1IK forest toward which tho airplane was
driving covered a range of high hills,
limiting down. Peggy saw that the woods
wer.e pitted here and there by large holes.
In these holes strange creatures were crawl
ing about. With a little shock she awak
ened to the fact that these crawling creatures
were soldiers soldiers wearing gas-masks
and fighting with rifles nnd machine guns.
Whether they were Americans or Germans
the could not make out. The woods seemed
to be s arming with fighters ready to pounce
upon and destroy any army that might dare
"There's a shell hole at the top rf the hill.
Ben nnd Bill nre there. Dlc Into It," cried
The sun was blinding Billy Belgium, who
was heading straight for the east, but pres
ently he saw a large cavity away uikjh the
hill, and down he sped Into It, while bullets
whistled all about them.

hid themselves behind an ammunition box.
"You'e made an awful mistake," whis
pered Homer Pigeon. "You've landed right
in a Clerman machine-gun nest."
'Billy and Peggy were struck with dismay
nt this news. Sure enough when they peeked
around the corner of the ammunition box
they could see that the hole was held by n
dozen soldiers In steel gray uniforms. There
could be no mlstnklng their nationality after
one look at their faces.
"flet In tho airplane ngaln," whispered
Billy In reply. "We'll hustlo out of tht's."
"We'd be shot the Instant we rose Into the
air," answered Homer Pigeon. "These f!er
mans bang away at every messenger Pigeon
they see. We have not been made Invisible
by Gollckety Leaves, like you and Princess
Peggy. We nre caught In a trap. We'll
have to wait until dark."
"And by dark Ben and Bill may be dead,

"They ar In a trap Just like this." ex
plained Homer Pigeon. "Before the Ameri

some of us messenger Pigeons with them
to carry back messages.

tho Germans were hidden nil around them
In dozens of machine-gun nests, waiting to
mow down the Americans. ,
'Ben and Bill sent back word by us mes
senger Pigeons, telling nbout this trap, and
so the American army fooled the Germans
and did not nttack the woods.
"Ben ana Bill by their daring saved their
comrades from being killed by the machine
guns, but now they nre In danger of being
killed themselves, ns the Germans havo dis
covered their presence nnd nre firing on
them all the time. The boys have been out
of food since last night and have only a
little water. Their ammunition Is running
low, too, nnd the Germans may rush them

"That's what wo want to know," answered
Homer Pigeon. "You've always been able to

shell hole. Up nt the edges were crouched
the Germans, rifles In hand, waiting for a
chance to take a shot at Ben and Bill. Near
the top was a lclous-lookIng machine gun.
As Billy's eyes took' In this situation,
his lips began to move.
"Gollckety tall, Gollckety fast.
Oh, when It comes fall, why summer Is past."
The Bpell worked at once. Billy and Pepf,
grew to their own slses and then went on,

he ma the words of the charm.
"We're going to give those Huns the sur

ing forward toward the Germans. Peggy,
not knowing what was going to happen, but
ready to help, kept close beside them,
