the rescue of Elaine from the brutal
machinations of ihe Clutching Hand.

Aunt Josephine turned to Craig,
gratefully. "How can I ever thank you

Kennedy was quite embarrassed.
With a smile. Elaine perceived his
discomfiture, not at all displeased by it.
"Come into the library'" she cried
gayly. taking his arm "I've something
to show you "
Where the old safe, which had been
burn through, had stood, was now
a brand-new safe of the very latest
construction ami design—one of those
globular safes that look and are so
"Here is the new safe." she pointed
out brightly. It is not only proof
against explosives, but between the
plates is a lining that is proof Against

"I knew you'd approve of it." cried
Elair.e. much pleased "Now I have
something else to show you."
She paused at the desk, and from a
drawer took out a portfolio of large
photographs They were very hand
some photographs of herself.
"Much more wonderful than the
safe,'' remarked Craig earnestly Then,
hesitating and a trifle embarrassed,
he added. "May I —may 1 have one?"
"If you care for it." she said, drop
ping her eyes, then glancing up at him
"Care for it?" he repeated. "It will
be one of the greatest treasures —"
She slipped the picture quickly into

could make out he had placed some

his watch and rising as he turned

He crossed oTer to where she stood

that Bennett was very much smitten
by his fair client

what you have done for roe today."
But there was something lifeless

"I'm afraid Mr. Jameson and 1 must

. ated by clockwork. Across the blank
white paper ran an Ink line traced by
a stylographic pen, used as I had
seen iu mechanical pencils used in
offices, hotels, banks and such places.
Kennedy examined the thing with
"What is it?" I asked
"A new kinograpb." he replied,
still gating carefully at the rolled
up part of the paper. "1 have in

not in our absence. This straight line

moment "
Craig hastily unlocked the door and
"niered Inside I could see hitn pac
ing up and down our modest quarters.
"Do you see anything, Walter?"
he called.
I looked at the klnograph The
pen had started to trace its line, no
louger even nnd straight, bul
at different heights across the paper.
He came to the coor "What do you
think of it?" he inquired.
"Some idea." I answered enthusi
We entered and I fell to work on a
special Sunday story that I had been
forced to neglect. I was not so busy.
howeTer, that 1 did not notice out of
the corner of my eye that Kennedy
had taken fA>m its cover Elaine
Dodge's picture and was gating at It
1 had finished as much of the article
as I could do theu and was smoking
and reading it over. Kennedy was
still gating at the picture Miss Dodge
had given him. then movtng from place
tc about the room, evidently
wondering where it would look best. I
doubt whether he had done another
blessed thing since we returned.
He tried it on the mantel. That
Wouldn't do. At last he held it up be
side a picture of Galton. I think, of
i finger print and eugenics fame, who
hung on the wall directly opposite the
fireplace. Hastily he compared the
two. Elaine's picture was precisely
the same site.
Next he tore out the picture of the
scientist and threw it carelessly into
the fireplace. Theu he placed Elaine's
pit'ure in its place and hung it up
again, standing off to admire it.
I watched him gleefully. Was this
Craig? Purposely 1 moved my elbow
suddenly and pushed a book with a
bang on the floor Kennedy actually
jumped. 1 picked up the book with a
muttered apology. Xo, this was not
the same old Craig.
Perhaps half an hour later I was still
reading. Kennedy was now pacing up
aud down the room, apparently unable
to concentrate his mind on any but
one subject.
He stopped a moment before the .
photograph, looked at it fixedly. Then
he started his methodical walk again,
hesitated, and went over to the tele-
phone, calling a number which I rec
"She must haTe been pretty well
done up by her experience." he said
apologetically, catching my eye. "I
was wondering if—hello!— oh. Misa
Dodge —l—er—l—er—just called up to
see if you were all right."
Craig was very much embarrassed,
but also very much in earnest.
A musical laugh rippled over the
telephone. "Yes. I'm all right, thank
you. Mr. Kennedy—and I put the pack
age you sent me into the safe, but—"
' Package!" frowned Craig. "Why, I
atnt you no package. Miss Dodge. In
the safe?"
"Why. yes. and the safe is all COT
eret" with moistur®—and so cold."
'Moisture—cold?" he repeated
"Yes. I have been wondering if it is
all right. In fact. I was going to call
you up. only I was afraid you d think
I was foolish."
T shall be right over," he answered
hastily, clapping the receiver back on
its hook "Walter," he added, seizing
his hat and coat, "come on—hurry!"
A few mlnntes later we drove up In
a tax! before the Dodge house and
rang the bell.
Jennings admitted us sleepily.
It could not have been long after we
left Miss Dodge, late in the afternoon,
that Susie Martin, who had been quite
worried over out long absence after
the attempt to rol her fa'ther, dropped
in on Elaine. Wfde-eyed. she had lis
tened to Elaines story of what had
"And you think this Clutching Hand
has never recovered the incriminating
papers that caused him to murder
your father?" asked Susie.
Elaine shook her head. **No. Let me
show you the new safe I've bought.
Mr. Kennedy thinks it wonderful."
"I should think you'd be proud of it,"
admired Susie. "I must tell father to
get one. too."
At that very moment. If they had
known it. the Clutching Hand, with
his sinister, masked face, was peering
at the two girls from tte other sid*
of the porticros.
i Suala rose to go and Klalna followed
her to the door. No aooaar had aha
| gone than the Clutching Rand came
' oat from behind the curtails. He gated

tha aafe aboat which the two girls had
been talking, stealthily examined It.
Ho must have heard someone corn
tag, tor with a gesture of hate at the
safe Itself, as though he personified It,
he slipped back of again.
Elaine had returned, and as she sat
down at the desk to go over some pa
pers which Bennett had left relative
to settling up the estate the masked
intruder stealthily and silently with
"A package for you. Miss Dodge, M
announced Michael later in . the eve
ning, as Elaine, In her dainty evening
gown, was still engaged in going over
the papers. He carried it iu his hands
rather gingerly.
"Mr. Kennedy sent it. ma'am. Me
says /it contains clues, and will you
plojyse put it in the new safe for him."
Elaine took the package eagerly and
examined It. Then she pulled open
little round door of the globular

chael," she remarked. "This package
is as cold as Ice."
"It Is. ma'am." answered Michael
She closed the safe, aud, with a
glance at her watch, set the time took
and went upstairs to her room.
No soouer had Elaine disappeared
than Michael appeared agalu. catlike,
through the curtains from the Arawing
room, and. after a glance about the
dimly lighted library, discovering that
the coast was clear, motioned to a fig
ure hiding behind the portieres.
A moment aud Clutching Hand him
self came out.
He moved over to the safe and
looked it over. Then he put out his
hand and touched it.
"Listen!" cautioned Michael.
Someone was coming, and they
hastily slunk behind the protecting
portieres. It was Marie. Elaine's maid.
She turned up the ligh'ts and went
over to the desk for a book for which
Elaine had evidently sent her. She
.paused and appeared to be listening.
Then she went to the door.
"Jennings!" she beckoned.
"What Is it, Marie?" he replied.
She said nothing, but as he came up
the hall led him to the center of the
"Listen! I heard sighs and groans!"
Jennings looked at her a moment,
puezled. then laughed. "You girls!"
he exclaimed. "1 suppose you'll always
think the library haunted now."
"But, Jennings, listen," she per
Jennings did listen. Sure enough,
there were sounds, weird, uncanny. He
gated about the room. It was eerie.
Then he took a few steps toward the
safe Marie put out her hand to It and
started back.
"Why. that safe is all covered with
Cold sweat!" she cried with bated
Sure enough, the face of the safe
was beaded with dampness. Jenning
put his hand on it and quickly drew it
away, leaving a mark on the damp
"W-what do you think of that?" he
"I'm going to tell Miss Dodge," cried
Marie, genuinely frightened.
A moment later she burst into
Eiaine's room.
"What is the matter. Marie?" asked
Elaine, laying down her book. "You
look as if you had seen a ghost."
"Ah. but mademoiselle—it ees just
like that. The safe—if mademoiselle

Puzzled, bat interested, Elaine fol
lowed her. In the library Jennings
pointed mutely at the new safe. Elaine
approached it. As they stood about,
new beads of perspiration, as it were,
formed on it. Elaine touched it and
also quickly withdrew her hand.
"I can't imagine what's the matter,"
she said. "But—well—Jennings, you
may go—and Marie, alsq."
When the servants had gone she still
regarded the safe with the same won
dering look, then turning out the
light, she followed.
She had scarcely disappeared when,
from the portlered doorway near by,
the Clutching Hand appeared, and.
after gazing out at them, took a Quick
looH at the safe.
"Good!" he muttered.
Noiselessly Michael of the sinister

"Confound It!" muttered Clutching

heavy valour curtains.

"I'm so glsd to see you, Mr. Ken

Jennings admitted us.
She had heard the bell and was com
ing downstairs ss we entered. We
three moved toward tha library and
someone switched on the lights.
Craig strode over to the safe. The
cold sweat on \lt had now turned to
Icicles. Craig's face clouded with
thought as he examined It more close
ly. There wss actuslly a groaning
sound from wtthin.
"It can't be opened." he said to him
self. "The time lock Is set for tomor

"Quick—Elaine!" he cried, taking
her arm. "Stand back!"

powerful as It was, had actually begun
to warp and bend. The plates were

report and concussion, the door blew

We stood gating, aghast, a second,

examined the safe. He bent down and
from tho wreck took up a package,
now covered with white.
As quickly he dropped it.
"That is the package that was sent,"
cried Elaine.
Taking it In n table cover, he laid
it on the table and opened It. Inside
was a peculiar shape flask, open at the
top. but like a vacuum bottle.
"A newar flask!" ejaculated Craig.

Former Lightweight Champion Hopes
to Regain Title in Ton-Round Rout
in New York To-night—Both Are
Confident of Victory
New York. March 11.—Willie Bit
■«• liie, former lightweight champion of
I the world, hopes to regain the title by
a |t nock out tonight when he meets
j Freddie Welsh in a ten-round battle at
| Madison Square Garden. Willie's one
' and only hope of reannexing the crown
j is in landing a knockout blow.
If the null goes the limit there
seems to be little chance of the Cali
j fornian coining out in front. Welsh is
I considered the most marvelous det'en
j sive lightweight that ever lived. Welsh
| undoubtedly is not as good now as
; when he won the title t'roiu Ritchie on
| .lulv 7, last year, in London, but it is
[ doubtful if Willie is as good as he was
Ritchie believes he is going to stop
Welsh. He declares that he lias a
"hunch" that he is going to win by a
knockout and he is confident. He de
clares he will go after the Englishman
from the very start and never stop
flay-in; awav with both hands.
"Welsh will find me hitting harder
and straii'hter than when he was pre
sented with the title." Ritchie said
last night. "I'll force the pace so fast
and hard that he will tire along about
the seventh or eigth round, and when
he tires his guard will surely lower. It
is theu that I intend to soiul over the
knockout punch that will give me back
the title I was robbed of in London.''
From Oceanport, Welsh telephoned
late yesterday afternoon:
"I'm going to prove to New York
fans that I clearly defeated Ritchie for
the title. If there is any knockout, it
will be yours truly who will land the
Wow. I made Ritchie 'dog' it in Lon
don and I'll do it again to-night, too."
The men are making 135 pounds at
2 o'clock iu the afternoon. It will be
a grudiire affair. Welsh has never for
gotten how he was forced to fight for
nothing, not even training expenses
for the struggle that won for him the
crown, and Ritchie will never believe
otherwise than he was "jobbed" out
of the championship
Independents Expect Victory Over
