This man was 80 years old and for 16 years he had lived ; alone in a $10-a-week hall bedroom. He had no friends, no ; relatives and no evident pleasures: to all appearances he was ' simply an old drifter who had just enough money to cling to his obscure little niche and drowse away his remaining; <: years. *' But when he died, people begin to find out things about 7 him. They found out that he was rich—rich at any rate, by ' comparison with his penny-pinched surroundings. *He had a ': past, of some kind: his rooms contained the sort of books that , r are read only by persons of culture and education, and ap- -;• parently he had at one time been an active business man ;,: Whose recreation was big game hunting in the faroff parts V of the world. v" ' * *' * n THERE have been a good many people like that; aging misers 1 who lived timorously and doled out their pennies, fearfully, denying themselves the comforts their money could 4 buy them and carefully hoarding useless dollars in bank or ., strong box. They always leave us perplexed, and vaguely ^jrcitated. Their lives seem so pointless, their desperate fru- -gahty so wasted. - ... Yet the real puzzle in this particular case goes deeper. This old chap wasted that $90,000 hoard of his just as -truly as if he had played ducks and drakes with it like the youth in the fairy tale. Yet a waste of money is not. after all, one of the principal crimes;-if a man happens to have ascetic tastes and wants nothing that his money can buy him, .jiving lilo a miser is only a minor eccentricity. _ The real riddle lies in the old gentleman's retirement , .from life. It is what he did with his last 16 years, rather than AVhat he did with his concealed wealth, that constitutes the mystery, * ,.. * * * ohammed Goes to the Mountain By Bruce Cation Day A Southern Crtilsr In Vnur Arm Clmlr. Winter winds niul n southern cruise go hand in hand. Three new travel boohs offer you just this exciting sort of trip right from the depths of your arm chair. The first ia Charles B. Partner's "West Indian Ovl.vs.sey" (Dodge: $2.75) —and n most romantic story it is. Here is a guide to the West Indies and u picture of the color and drama of some of the most interesting islands on earth. In a Santo Domingo cathedral rest the bones of Christopher Columbus; in Haiti an- thi- ruins of Christopher's vast citadel; in the Virgin Islands .stiaids Uluehcard's Castle. Mr. Pnrni- er unfolds oach of the.se stories, linking yesterday with today. One of the attractive features of his book is n short account, preceding each chapter, of the history and geography of j each town, city or island visited. 'lorn Marvel's "Circling the Carib- hran" Olarcourt, Brace-: $2.50) covers much of tin.' .same ground, more superficially. Using the modern clipper plane;; and the hack of a Jamacian mule. Mr. Marvel made a circuit of the Caribbean in two and a half months. His account is interesting, hut one feels he might have tapped his sources deeper, particularly the old world of Caracas and Curacao, Barbados ami Trinidad.

"Jt would be a crreat relief," he says, "to drive all Jews, regardless of their citizenship, and degraded whites, from all colonial territory." That kind of talk is enough to make one lose all sympathy with the German plea for return of the lost territories. 1 he anti-Jewish aberration is bad enough when it is confined to Germany; the world is not likely to accept the prospect of >ta transplantation overseas. ••^•••'•••'i^^ amily Doctor t M.

CHAPTER XXIV V/TABY MELISSA was on the LTJ - fourth rung down when Honey Bee darted forward. The ;lim ladder poles stuck up waist ligh above the rim. Honey Bee jave one of them a savage kick. The ladder teetered outward! 'Lissa screamed in terror. Below, Bob had a very narrow looting. It was not enough from ivhich to exert a counter-balance )n the ladder; to try it would send aoth people crashing down. He leaped instantly to a rocky •cnob a short way up, dug one toe jnd both hands into cracks there, und •jut with and his free steadied foot the reached ladder, swung it back to the cliff. It was i miraculous move, a matter of seconds at tremendous risk, "Slide dov/n, quick!" he shrilled. 'To the ledge." Prom above Honey Bee had seen only thut her first attempt .vas a 'ailure, that the ladder hadn't fallen. She stepped again to the rim, 'eaneJ to take the ladder in her lands and literally throw it and :he white girl down to destruction. She was crouched for the determined thrust when— BANG!—a shot roared nearby. The ladder went over this time —and with it went Honey Bee rierselfl * * * |\TARY MELISSA had slid down its ordered, clung now with Bob on the rock shelf no bigger than a table top. They stood frozen in horror at the drama before them. Both the ladder and the Indian hurtled in weird windmill fashion. Once, twice, three times, each if them struck rock protrusions on the way down, sliding and crashing out of sight finally into the mass of tree tops and broken stones at the cliff base. 'Lissa's involuntary reaction was a low, shuddering moan. Bob gripped her tightly, his muscles tense. The whole tragedy, from the first kick of the ladder until now, was but a matter of seconds. "She tried to kill |iu!" Bob oreathed, relaxing a little. "She pushed you, the ladder! Then a shot—" "YOU ALL RIGHT DOWN THAR?" A familiar voice shouted dov/n at them. "Hades!" cried Bob. "Oh! over. It's terrible. I — " Bob Barry was a strong young man. Strong in heart and strong of muscle. But lie had been through a great deal 1n the past week. He had weathered enough crises to last most men a lifetime. He needed white- men's food and rest. He had a right to be jittery there on that eagle's cyric of a ledge, clinging fiercely to the girl he loved. "Fust time 1 ever had to shoot a Indian squaw," remarked Hades Jones from tho rirn, conversationally, "but by dads she had it feller! You been sweethearts over since the day I seen you both in Blanco Canyon. You young fools jest ain't had sense know Waal, ef it enough to wasn't for | eomin' to her!

Hi.s grixxled old head protruded over tho rim in comical fashion. Hu was lying prone to talk to them. "Will you marry us? You shall! He's got To, Bob! I won't marry you unless you, Miss M'lissy, of I hadn't .shot her." "Yes! Yes, Hades." Bob looked his gratitude. "I'll never forget it. You saved her life. You were there! Thank God, Hades." 'Lissa herself was still speechless, appalled by the event, and Bob wasn't yet entirely rational. He thanked Hades in a strained, unnatural voice. "Jest set tight thar and blow Bob grinned.

A this writing it seems certain that th roducer will not renew his nffilin lions (With United Artists, and that h will form an alliance with Metro joldwyn-Mayer. In the latter event, Sclznick shoult ie able to borrow from his father-in nw, Louis B. Mayer, the services o hat dashing blockade-runner and icart-brenker, Cnp'n Clark Gable. However, with the recent arrivn here of u tall, dark and handsome gen named Anthony Averill, Hollywooc zed that Selznick has a seconcl- ! string Rhett Butler whom he .could cull vipon in a'n emergency. -•Anthony Alexander Morton Averill (Tony to you) is a newcomer to films, and to acting, for that matter. In his rather brief time, he has played varsity end on the football team of Loyola University at Chicago, studied medicine, worked as telephone lineman, guard on elevated trains, in an advertising agency, and as a newspaper reporter. Last April, while supposed to bc working on a St. Louis paper, Averill was entertaining some pals in a tavern with a funny speech and some songs. Ho was S|x)tted by a literary agent, who immediately forsook literature and bundled his disovery off to New York. The agent, one Don Stetson Davis, got his protege into the Paramount training school for coaching and a crecn test. "It was a lucky break for me that Paramount didn't sign me I after that test," Averill said.- "I was" living on advanced expense money, mil if 1 had been given a contract 1 would have had to pay back about $500." Averill's agent began dickering with Warner Brothers and on the same day hat he came to an agreement with Warners, Averill put his name on a ontract for David Selznick. This mixup finaly was ironed out jy the two studios, which agreed to plit the services of their discovery, "tt-sult is that Averill now is working in "The Mystery of Hunting's End" for Warners, and will be available to Selznick when and if he is wanted for* Thin "Gone- With the Wind." | Mjv His first flicker experience wns| w jtl, pretty strenuous, because it included!
