Ho turned abruptly and left her. In
a moment Blvens cumo out and led
his wlfo to a seat which had been re
served near his.
One of the things which had Increas
ed Blvens' nervousness was tho fact
that tho Judgo Ignored his presenco In
tho courtroom. IIo had been accus
tomed to deference from judges. This
Judge was a man with red blood In
Ills veins, a man of lntcnso personal
UkoR and dislikes nnd a fearless dis
penser of what be belloved to bo even
handed Justice under the law.
Tho young lawyer sat In silence be

which tho judge, at his request, had
placed last. As tho moment drew near
for the plea his nervo tension grow in
tense. Waves of passionate emotion
swept bis heart Uo waked from his
day dream with a start to hear the
clerk read In qulok tones:
Tuo people against Ilenry Wood

"What have you to say, IlenryWood

posed upon you for tho crime of which
you stand convicted by your own
With a quick movement of his tall
llgiire Stuart was on his feet, every
nerve and muscle strung to' tho high
est tension. Only tho deep, tremulous
notes of his voice betrayed his emotion.
"May It please your honor," ho slowly
began. "I wish to establish to the court
before I say anything In behalf of my
client tho Important fact that ho of
fered to make full restitution of tho
property taken, thnt ho did this volun

The speaker paused, drew close to
the Judgo and then In low, Impassioned
tones told as If bo were talking to n
father tho story of Woodman's life nnd
tho ovents which drove him to madness
on tho fatal night of his crime. In
flashes of vivid eloquence ho described
the magnificent ball and drew In som

ruin, the man who had given his blood
to bis country nnd his daily life In an
unselfish ministry to tho homeless and

cried In ringing tones, "tho repeal of

Tho Judgo wheeled in his armchair,
cleared his throat and looked out of the ',
window to hldo from tho crowd a
tear that had stolen down his furrowed
IIo turned at length to Blvens' law
yers nnd qul5tly asked:
"Tho state Insists on tho enforcement
of sentenco without mercy?"
"Absolutely," was the shnrp answer.
"This Is your desire, Mr. Blvens?"
tho Judge asked with some severity.
"Yes," tho financier fiercely replied.
"And yot you say that you aro a

to do. IIo determined that no story

a Now York paper. Ho would save

As tho court adjourned Blvens curs

his hand to his forehead, staggered
and sank to tho floor.

Naval Officer's Invention Is a
Marvel of Ingenuity.
A Swoop From tho Sky, and Missile Is
Sent on Its Way, Dropping From Air
Craft at High Speed Naval. Guns of
Present Day Cannot Be Trailed on
Aeroplane When Going Swiftly.
Rear Admiral Bradley A. Flsko, un
til recently In command of tho first di
vision of the Atlnntlc fleet, now ou
duty as aid for operations In tho navy
department at Washington, has Invent
ed an apparatus which Is believed to
make possible the firing of submarine
torpedoes from aeroplanes. The devlto
can be fitted to any type of aeroplane.
Naval officers who have seen the
model In tho patent office in Washing
ton are enthusiastic over the possibili
ties of the Flake Invention ns a means
of defense.
The torpedo which the aeroplane at
tachment is designed to discharge may
bo of any of the standard types nnd
is carried In cliocks on tho bottom or
lower frame of the aeroplane. A strap
connected with tho aeroplane passes
below the torpedo, holding It, and Is
then again connected with the operat
ing part of the aeroplane proper. The
torpedo is hold rigidly In place, its bow
pointing in tho same direction as tho
airship. Tho projectile 'is released by
a lever apparatus operated bythe foot
of the aviator, the torpedo falling hori
zontally out of the chocks Into the wa
ter nnd then speeding on its way to
the ship ngainst which it is nimed.

high rate of speed and ns nearly ver

fifteen feet of tho water, directing his

bears on the target. The aviator then

The advantages obtained by proceed'

since torpedoes designed for long
ranges are much heavier than those
fired at shorter distances.
While the Flsko Invention Is attract

nnd abroad, there comes news of still
another wonderful Invention, the ob
Ject of which Is to protect war vessels
from torpedo attack. This invention
is of Gormen origin. It Is an "llluinl
nated shell" loaded with calcium car
bide. Tho shell is flrod in tho usual
On striking tho water the shell sinks
a few feet and tho water, entering the
'shell through apertures, sets up chem
ical action which generates gas, tho
resulting buoyancy driving the shell
back to tho surface, after which the
gas la automatically Ignited, shedding
an equal light over a largo area. The
light is equal to 8,000 candle power
and will burn for an hour. Tho object
of tho inventor is to surround a battle
ship at night with these illuminated
shells, thus rendering practically lm
possible the unobserved npproach of
