RAGGED PRINCES Great Mystery Story. fiy EDGAR WALLACE, *f «»ffc* O»«en Archer." "The Man from Morocco." '•«•>,, CftAI>l£!R XXXMt. IN tnttS' OtJTfiR CIRCLE. ,f» **y thAt Audrey was sliocked is to describe In hilld and Inadequate WrftJ* tftis enibtion which her experience l»a called into existence. Lying do^h Ottlfte bed after Dick had gone- shr WittS Stilt very tired and sleepy- she 3 S6bail«a, .with a rueful smile, the ' .-- Graffitt'a warnings agaltfst Lbttdon. What would that old lady think •ot her, she wondered. For she did Mot doubt that the story of her criminal Career had lost nothing by repetition". Possibly the farm had already become notorious as the sometime home of a shrewd and ingenious, indeed, romantic, lawbreaker. Perh*pr. they would put a tablet on th'e wftll, she 1 mused, half asleep: "Herd HvW 16f many years the notorious Atttfrey Bedford " .She tyoke. from her doze with a start. Her do'of *r&a ajar; she was certain she had closed it—equally certain that it had been pushed open by somebody outside. Jumping up from the bed, she walked out into the corridor. There was nobody in sight; she Tnust have been, mistaken. Then she saw on the floor at her feet a letter, and at the llrst view of the address her breath almost stopped. It Was from Malpas! She tore open the envelope with trembling fingers. Inside was tho untidy •> spread Of • scrawled lines, three words to the line, "Lacy and his satellite are dead. You will go tMe same way if you betray k my Confidence. Meet me without fail 4-tBnlght at 9 o'clock at the entrance f of St. DUnstan's, Outer Circle. If you ' tell Shannon it will be the worse for him and you." She ,read the letter again and the hand that held the paper trembled. St. Dunstan'a was a landmark In London, a home for blind soldiers, on the loneliest part of the Outer Circle. Should she tell Dick? Her first impulse was to disregard the warning; her second thought was Of his safety. Putting the letter in her handbag, ^she ,-Wert^, out to find the floor clerk. Thatjsuperlor young lady had not seen any, man, old or young, in the corridor, exc'ejrt, apparently, people who were Welf/authenticated. Audrey was/so used to mysteries now that this. new terror which had been sprung upon her was part of the normal. Who was this mystery man, this gray shadow, that flitted unseen, coming and going at his will? As far as the hotel wa's concerned, his work Was easy. There .y^re two entrances, each leading to. 'a different street (there were two stairways and clvators in b<6th wings of tho building), and it was, as she knew, a 'fairly < simple matter to slip up and down without observation. She read the letter again and liked It less. One thing she must not do and that was Ignore the summons. She must either go to tho appointment or else she must tell Dick and risk what followed. There were many reasons why Dick Shannon should not be taken into her confidence at the moment—he was seeking Malpas, nnd, though she could lead him direct to the man, she could as easily lead him to his death I Throughout the duy her troubled . mind grappled with the problem, to which was added a new discomfort. From the moment she left the hotel in the afternoon until her return she had the feeling that she was under observation, Somebody was trailing her, watching her every movement. She found herself looking round fearfully und stepping back with suspicion to stare into the faces of perfectly in- Vrtocent and unoffending people. f m .'It was characteristic of her that thn \/*Wmory of the tragic .sight .she had witnessed did not keep her from her favorite"walk, though she hud to screw tip her courage to go along tho footpath where she had seen the unknown • her death hour. The seat was not in view from the far end of the walk; it was placed at the elbow of the path und came into eight gradually. She stopped dead, her heart thumping fiercely, when she caught her llrst glimpse. She saw the blue skirt of a .woman and two small .feet, motionless". "You're-'* .fool, Audrey Bedford," she said. /" .. The sound of her own voice drove her forward io" discover, sitting in the place of doom, a nursemaid cuddling a rosy-cheeked baby! The nurse looked up to view with interest a very pretty girl, who laughed aloud as she walked past. Annoyed, the" nurse sought the mirror in her handbag to see what tho girl was laughing at, On the way back to tho hotel Audrey stopped to buy a weekly devoted to the interests of tho poultry keeper—a whimsical thought of hers, but a wlso one.for, in the well-remembered jargon of -its pages, in the extravagant "The Frot," Et*. fusing to hold the wet flakes that were falling. The Outer Circle, excelled itself in gloom; in five minutes' driving she saw no human soul on its sidewalks. For an interminable time the cab continued on its way before it drew up to the curb. "Here's St. Dunstan's, miss," said the driver, getting down and standing by the door. "There's nobody here." "I expect they will come," she said. She had hardly spoken before a long car came noiselessly into view and slowed a dozen yards behind the cab. She saw a bent figure step painfully to the sidewlak, and waited, her breath coming a little faster. "Audrey!" There was no mistaking that voice.' She went reluctantly a few paces and looked back at the taxi driver. / "Will you come here, please?" she asked with an assumption of firmness. Ho walked slowly toward her, until she saw, above the white muffler around his neck, the big nose and the long chin she had so graphically described to Dick that morning. "Come here," he said impatiently. "Send your cabman away." "He's staying," she said loudly. "1 can't remain long with you. You know that the police are looking for you?" '»Send the cabman away," ho snapped again, and then: "You've got somebody In that cab 1 Curse you ! I told you " She saw the glitter of steel In his hand and shrank back. 'There's nobbody there—I swear there's nobody there! Only the taxi driver," she said. "Come here," he commanded. "Get nto my car." She turned' and slipped on the Icy sidewalk, and in another second he had gripped her by both arms and was standing behind her. "Here, what's this?" "shouted the cabman, and came threateningly toward him. "Stand where you are." Before the muzzle of the pistol the big driver halted. "Take your cab and go. Here I" A handful of coins fell almost at his feet, and the driver stooped to recover them. As he did so the pistol rose once and came down with a crash upon the unprotected head, and the man fel" like a log. All this happened before Audrey realized her extreme danger—happenec without her being able to see the face of the murderer, as she knew him' to be, for he stood behind her all the time and struck at the cabman over her shoulder. As the cabman fell she found herself lifted from her feet. "If you scream I'll cut your throat!" hissed a voice in her ear. 'You're going the way Marshall went and Tonger—the way Dick Shannon will go, unless you do as I tell you!" •• "What do you want of me?" she gasped, struggling hopelessly to free herself from his hold.

(Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, May 31,-It is necessary to go back some years in financial history to find a parallel for the conditions obtaining the past month in the market for long term bonds. Those xvho have long been identified with the investment business have seldom witnessed so complete a stalemate between buyers and sellers of high grade securities or so little response to such a strong s«t of money influences as has been present since Federal Reserve banks reduced their rediscounts in April and in the early part of May. Comparing average mestic bonds now it prices of do- will be found that they are approximately at the same level as a month ago. Foreign dollar issues are a trifle higher than at the end of April. This means that, in spite of a lowering in practically every form in which money is loaned, fixed interest securities have been unresponsive to those changes that normally would have carried up the market for them an average of several points. The bond market has been a mystery to those who have studied its symptoms and trends for years and extremely discouraging to banking houses and institutions through which tho major part of the new capital Issues is distributed. , An effort to find the causes of this unusual situation develops the following that may be accepted as partial explanation: First, that the individual investor das abandoned bonds and is waiting for another opportunity to buy stocks when the business situation becomes normal. Second, .that institutions, other than nsuran'ce companies and savings banks, are still reluctant to increase iheir portfolios of long term securities after the last year's experience with depreciating bonds and have more inclined to earn less on promise of its advertisements, found her balance. she i She hoped Dick would call that afternoon, but he was far too busy, und in a way she was glad, because she could npt have seen him without telling him about her intended errand. Nor did he appear at dinner, and she retired to her room to map out her plans. First, she would leave all her money behind with the reception clerk iu the hotel strong room; und, .second, she would choose tho strongest-looking taxi • driver she could linU, und Mho would not leave the taxi. That weemed a very sensible and satisfactory plan. If she could only have borrowed a'weapon of some kind her hint remaining fears -•would have been removed, but among <i4J>e mild and innoi'iiou.s members of the public whom .she .saw in the. lounge there seemed nono who would bo likely to carry lethal weapons on their persons. "And I should probably shoot my- tiulfl" she thought. The desirable tuxicub driver took a whole lot of finding. Hume .sort of creeping paralysis uppearoii to have overtaken the profession, and, «taiul- ing under the portico of the hotel, «ho watched flfty decrepit old gentlemen crawl past, before a providential giant came her way and was beckoned eagerly. "I'm going to meet a iniin in the Outer Circle," she nald hurrldly. "1— I don't wnat to be left alone with him. Do you understand?" He didn't understand. Most of the young ladies he had driven to the Outer Circle to meet men had desires quite the other way around. She gave him directions and .sunk back In the seat with a sigh of relief that an unpleasant adventure wuu on its way to completion. It was a snowy, boisterous ni^ht, and the roads of the Circle were biurk uiid white, tho swaying treeu alone re- IMPORTANT EVENTS IN WORLD CENTERS By PARIS KECSKEMETI, Staff Correapnmlcnt. BERLIN, May 31.—Anyone looking for a scrap of evidence of the "good old days" in this roaring, modern city can find it by going to 31 Stralauer strasse in the older section of town. There, In a little, two-story dwelling, dating from another century and quite untouched by the after wave of progress that has swept by ts modest front stoop, ar the office and laboratory of the only leech dealer eft in Germany. Decades ago this man's family established the business on a mass production basis, selling the blood-sucking worms in wholesale lots to apothecaries and physicians. Today the present owner finds that there Is still a wide enough demand for leeches to keep himself and his children in fairly comfortable circumstances. It WHS in 1842 that the family Donner set up its shop and laboratory in the Stralauer strasse. On June 24, 1842, a paid advertisement in one of the Berlin trade papers announced this fact. "Apothecaries," the notion read, "I have to offer healthy, freshly caught leeches, which I can supply upon short notice and at tho lowest possible prices. I also sell leeches singly upon physiciann' orders." Great-Grandfather Donner, the founder of the business. Had a leech-breeding farm in Frledrlchsfelde. He brought the parasites from Hungary and from the Caucaus when they were only a few days old and placed them in the especially constructed artificial ponds on the Frledrichsfelde farm. There were seven of these ponds. There tho worms remained until they were three years old, being fed in the meanwhile on Insects and the blood of frogs. From three to live years they were allowed to suck the blood of newly .slaughtered beef. At five thy were ready for duly, a leech having little medicinal value until he has reached that age. Tlie FrledrichsfeldH farm was given up a number of years ago when keches went out of'ton and today tho Donner family keeps them at their Stralauer strasse home in large stone jugs. They are usually fully developed when they ura brought in from Hungary, but they must be kept at a year in pure water and without nourishmont of any kind before their craving for human blood is brought to the proper pitch. i)uu primarily to experiments carried on during the World war leeches have risen somewhat in favor among medical practitioners. Several of the urger Berlin hoapitiils are now buying leeches from the Donner family, while other customers include research and scientlllc institutions that use the lowly worms for experimental purposes. These are not the only customers, but numbers of Individual buyers visit the li'ech shop, and they are not all old- ~ashioncd grand-mothers who cling to eeches because of their distrust of newfangled ideas. been their free funds through Street loans and short term paper than to tie up these funds in long term commitments. Third, that the market has had to absorb an amount of new bonds greater by 40 per cent than in the corresponding period of 1929, resulting in considerable congestion and switching 'rom old issues into new issues where an Increase in yield could be obtained in : the process of exchange, and Fourth, that prices of corporation bonds of the better quality have been fairly high, especially in contrast with tax exempt Issues and also with some grades of stocks that have been marked down and have reached a good yield basis and are immune from dividend reductions. Normally, the buying power In the bond market came mainly from the Institutions and from the private investor. The latter today shows great indifference to bonds and while he may make a subscription to some popular high yielding new issue, the average* bond salesman finds him cold to a majority of his offerings. He is still definitely determined that common stocks at some level, which possibly may not yet have been reached, will give him, from year to year, the highest return on his invested capital. Ordinarily his buying would take up the slack between the floating supply and tho amount absorbed by the institutions. With him out of the market, the supply is large enough to have an effect on prices all along the line, and if this is a permanent situation it will have to be reckoned with most seriously by those whose business it is to furnish new capital for corporations and foreign governments. It is not unlikely that a rationing of new capital issues will bo put into effect eventually in order to prevent one of the greatest handicaps to bond market movements, namely that of a constant oversupply of new issues, which not only affect these Issues but all others with which they come into supply At 2% per cent, time money ranging between 3 per cent and 3H per cent and bankers' acceptances around 2% per cent, no further official rate reduction* would help to lift the investment market from Its present apathetic state, its technical weakness and its competition -with speculative Issues temporarily, At least, overbalance the Influence of a superabundance of investment funds. It is rather significant that, In spite Of the ease In money rates, there has been so little refunding of high coupon -bonds or high dividend paying stocks in contrast to the enormous volume of such operations In the last buoyant bond market, that of the spring of 1928. The government, however, has benefitted from the situation In being able to cut down Its interest charges through the sale of treasury bills at unusually low figures. Next month it will be able to cancel the last of the high coupon treasury notes placed when credit conditions were extreme. The Japanese government 6% per cent loan issued at 90 has been an outstanding feature this month in the success that attended its issue and the substantial premlunr at which the bonds have since sold. This Is quite In contrast with the record of other foreign loans and it gives encouragement to those who have before them the distribution of the American portion of the German reparations loan, about whose price there has been more diversity of opinion than on any Important foreign issue brought out here in several years. RUBBER COMPANIES TALK OF MERGING By ET.MER C. WAITER, II. 1>. Financial Editor. NEW YORK, May 31.—The rubber industry is veering toward mergers as a step in self preservation. According to Wall Street information several of the large units of the rubber business are negotiating to take over other ;ompanies, and progress is being made along this line if rumors are to be credited. The larger tire companies are beset y several serious problems, the principle of which is the price of raw material, which fluctuates widely. Once the price is stabilized at any reasonable level, those close to the industry assert, the way will be open to really profitable business. The problem of diversification Is ess serious in that it can be overcome much more easily than that of 'aw material prices. Larger companies are now highly diversified. The latest step in this line is the development of rubber coatings for metal. Goodrich las perfected a process for vulcanizing rubber to various metals, notably iron and steel. Transformation of plants to bring about greater use of machinery in the arlous process also is aiding the in- lustry. Short cuts to production are expected to reflect in earnings of the arge companies this year. Incidentally the rubber business, specially the tire section, does not eel the effect of slower business as he automobile industry. Automobile ires must be purchased even though he automobiles themselves can be CHINESE LEADER BURNED IN EFFIGY By 1). V. BBSS, Staff Correspondent. PEIPING, May 31. — The "antl corps," as one Chinese newspaper has described Kuomintang demonstrators in the north, has now turned its attention upon General Chiang Kai-shek. The generalissimo of the government at Nanking has been burned in effigy at a mass-meeting at tendon by about 30,000 persons who assembled a few months ago to praise 1 this same leader as the "savior of his country." The agitation organizers in Peiping are an efficient lot. They send around word to schools, to colleges, to factories, and to government offices, and on 24 hours notice, they can assemble a mass-meeting of 30,000 men, women and children. They are called the "anti corps" because so many of their demonstrations are ''anti" something or other. The present phase of the nationalist movement, its leaders declare, Is largely destructive. The anti-Chiang Kai-shek mass- meeting has bi en almost exactly like many others during the past year, directed against soviet Russia, against Japan, against extra-terrltorlality, and Chiang Kai-shek. Speakers denounced General Chlnag as dictator, and accused him of seizing the party machinery. They declared that party members must arise against Chiang to save the country. There was little real enthusiasm apparent at the meeting. Various groups in Peiping have been taught to shout at given signals, and to wave flags at others. Often the demonstrators are out to enjoy themselves or to please Kuomintang officials. Some' of them hardly understand the purpose of the demonstration. gto, presented Ros« Redy, Tils lady i friend, with a deluxe artificial leg, tinted to match her complexion and costing $180.

The weekly bank statements Indicate that there has been some expansion in the purchases of securities by members of the federal reserve system, and presumably by non-member banks, but the total has not been large in comparison with other years. It has been primarily in short term issues, ranging from three to six months notes up to one and two years, with the result that all such issues are now at a premium and do not arovlde enough margin of earnings Dver interest paid to depositors to warrant further purchases. Consequently, natitutions may be compelled out of self Interest to go into the long term bond market, even though they may feel that prices there are high and that there are the usual risks of depreciation upon the return of money rates to a firmer basis as soon as commercial demands for funds increase.

Eleventh Avenuo kept year or so longer than in ordinary times. Transportation slows down somewhat but does not equal the drop in pace of many lines of trade. Heavy losses in the past by the rubber companies are being eliminated. No longer do tho companies gamble in futures on the rubber markets. They were caught with huge inventories when the bottom dropped out of the rubber market some time ago and since then have been doing a hand-to- mouth buying of supplies. Cut-throat competition also is being reduced and in most cases eliminated. However, there are still many loose ends to gather up before the rubber business will be on the name plane as many other major industries. One method to aid the industry is through carefully planned consolidations to cut down duplication of effort and bring lower manufacturing costs. The year 1930 is expected to bring out several huge mergers in this Held. The rubber industry ranks twelfth in volume of sales in the larger industries. It has a total investment of $1,250,000,000. In 1929 value of products increased to $1,115,000,000 from $961,000,000 in 1928, and from $99,881,000 thirty years ago in 1899. J tackle to fool coast guardsmen.
