Consider Marconi's miracle, for instance, and all that has grown out of il. The ship at sea is no longer isolated. Nation now talks with nation, over mountain barriers, limitless deserts and slurm-bo'iiml ocean.

If they can perform wonders that make the genii of the Arabian Nights look like stupid incompetents, they cannot very well go on living by the ideals and customs of Ihe cave man period. The old jungle-rule of tooth and claw Ills this era no belter than does a stone age hatchet. War, dictatorships, coiifldcnceless wealth, unscrupulous domagogery, oppression in any or all of ils forms— I hose limits ni'c disastrously out of rlate in our modern nge. Miracle-workers like .Marconi have set us free of the limitation!; of nur physical world; now il is up to us to set ourselves free of the limitations of our own blindness, givotl and I'ollv.

It is the strange luslon ol souls, ot spiritual entities in man and woman, when consciousness o£ love is declared, mutual and sincere. It grows with a sudden ecstatic surge, thence in ,1 gentle and somehow stflccato harmony, ever increasing, never reaching an end of its own accord. It is as old as Adam, lout cadi man must discover it for himself. Robert Barry discovered it there when 'death was hovering, when he fully believed that both lie and Melissa were losing their minds. They had been lost in utter darkness for many hours, perhaps several days. They could not even guess how long. They had slept at times, fitfully. Embracing each other now, in tire moat sacred of. moments, they remained silent and very still. Seconds passed— Bob knew not how many—and then suddenly Bob got. a grip on himself. He saw himself as ,a whimpering baby afraid of the dark. Anger replaced fear. Then his trained mind took command. * * * "TffHY, I'm not hysterical'." He " murmured il to himself, even as he held Mnry Jfelissi there. "On the contrary, I feel remarkably calm." He shook his head, us if to clear his eyes ol the darkness. He looked behind him again, which •would be down. '"LISSA!" He almost shrieked if. r " 'Lissa!" He was tense with .excitement again. But he forced himself, to be analytical, critical of, his own! reactions. No, this was not hys- ,teria. " 'LISSA! That IS a light! Look '—HEY! HEY! HELP!" Thirst had muted his voice terribly, but he made all the noise he could. He threw rocks. 'Lissa-! Tlie Editor's Letter Box yelled too, and between them they made a din of it. Voices answered, from far below. The two understood no words, but they were suffused with happiness. Salvation seemed at hand. They were almost hysterical with anticipation now. "It's Hades Jonesl It's Jones! And Holliman! They must have found an outlet hole below somewhere. They're coming! Oh, 'Lissa they've found us! They " She too was talking, jabbering They called and hallowed, and hugged each other as the lights grew stronger. Help was np- proaching. They dared not move much, Jost they fall over the ledge, but they squirmed in righteous glee. The rescue party was Blow in approaching. It had been far below, and the lights disappeared frequently as the men moved around rock formations. They flickered, too, Bob saw. He began lo wonder. Why In the name of goodness hadn't Hades used one of the lanterns, instead of -.torches "Hello, HADES? HOLLIMAN?" Bob yelled, when he knew they were within 30 yards or so. The lights stopped instantly. No answer came. Progress of the rescuers seemed very strange, then. Bob and 'Lissa peered at them intently. "Hejr, what's the matter? Can't you see us?" Bob was impatient, QTHER lights were jgnited then, and the group separated. Bob and 'Lissa couldn't distinguish the approaching .men clearly, :but he began lo think he saw a half dozen or more -forms. Moreover, there was a new and absolutely strange murmur of voices. "Bob!" whispered 'Lissa. "Are you—all right? Do you see what I do? I moan, are we out of our minds? Is this another nightmare after all?" "NO! No, I'm sure! But I don't know what. It's not our party that's certain. Stand still atid watch. HELLO THERE! WHO IS IT? WE NEED HELP!" Somebody answered immediat- ly, but—in a strange tongue! Bob was utterly amazed. He was a linguist. He spoke Spanish, the Mexican dialects of it, not to mention tlic ordinary Indian languages of southwestern tribes. But this garble was foreign to him. And the men themselves, slowly approaching, were foreign. The whole thing was impossible. It a scene from some -weird, imaginative Jairy tale, a bit of sfage imagery, theatrical and impressive and simost devilish. ,Bob was breathing hard, and he could feel 'JUissa trembling. "Good Lord!" He mumbled it. "I never knew it would b« this way." But in the same moment Ira knew it was real! The light was visible. The m«n were tangible. They were brown men, he could s«e now, which would roost likely make them Indians. But the setting, the utterly fantastic .circumstance — it was something to read by a fireside and scoff at, or a bit of trickery from Hollywood, except for the salimt fact that the brown people approaching were absolutely «]ivc, and that his own jnind was now as clear .and alert as .he :had eyvi known it to be. * * « 'pIIE strangers spoke repeatedly •*• to him. Some .of them, .he noted, held weapons; rather well made weapons of natural sticljs and stones. They wore scant clothing, mostly lain cloths ,and a crjiaa sort of sandals. They were »us- cular- men, and they were graceful, but they were not menacing. They tried time and. again to communicate with Bob .and Melissa, one man especially .doing -the talking. Bob talked back, in .all the dialects he knew, but in sain. Then jie motioned for weter— and got it. Some man liad brought a skin container, from which 'Lissa then Bob drank and asked no •questions. Bob forced her to take it swallow at a-lime, with long waits between, lest she suffer-spasms of -sickness nnd pain. Somewhere he bad Idr- tunately heard this warning, probably from old Hades.' '• • : '•; They got lood, ,too, a dried .meat. It was hard, and unsaifed, but >it was as ambrosia. Bob then .-thought to divide the last small chocolate candy with 'Lissa, but suddenly at the man who appeared to be leader. ThebrovVn man sniffed hVtasted 'it, ate -it thea with childish glee. All the ; brpwa men had been staring with a con-., sumihg curiosity, at white skin, at clothing, at Mary Melissa especially. Finally they signaled to.the two to come, heading back down the trail. "I suppose-we'll awaken after a while, honey," Bob grinned aiidl held her as -they walked. -"But whatever this-is, it's one-to''write down in trie books!" ' - ••••'.'• She gavc-no answer.-She'-Ws too'overwhelmed. •<•>..'•••. .-.. (To Be Continued) I'raises Mrs. Lane I Dear Sir: | A .few days ngo Uie Memphis Press .Scimitar had a picture and short bicgrapliy of Mrs. Martha Lane, or our city. I would iljse to add something to that, having known Mrs. Lane since I was a little girl. • I knew her mother, Mrs. Polly !
