With re liansdell and Vanderbilt ftk Taylor, Dodson and Wil>n, Shirley Cotton and Von ft nd many others, ! stood in front of them: the globe James and I found In the Other People's city," he said. They crowded around it: n rough projection of Imaginary parallels and meridians marked two circles. "Here," said Tony, pointing with a pencil, "Is where we are. To the south, Hansdell's camp. West, the city we explored. The Midianites" —He smiled. "That's I-Iendron's term for the Asiatics and Japs and Germans; it comes from the Bible —the ftlldlanltes are camped somewhere to the northwest. You nofe a city at this point. They doubtless occupy that city. Now—" His pencil moved south and west of the position where they were camped. 'You see thnt there's another city here. It's west of a line between here and Ransdell's camp, and about equidistant from both. 1 suggest that we go to that city- tonight, by the Other People's road —and occupy it. The distance can't be too great. We'll use the tractors." He then addressed those who could not see the map: "Imagine that we are camped In New York, Ransdell in Washington, the Midianites in Utlca—then this other city is about •Ions rumbled Into the blackness oward the Other People's road. When they had reached It, travel >ecame smooth; a single ray of Ight, a feeble glow showed the way to the driver. For more than an hour they traveled on. They crossed through the •alley where they had cut lumber, and they went over the bridge of the Other People. They reached a fork in the road among the foothills of the western range. It was a fork hidden by a deep cut, so that Tony and Eliot James had not seen >t on their flight of exploration. Then, suddenly, the light of the truck-tractor went out and word came back in tho form of a soft human shushing that made all of them silent. Tony ran forward. "What Is It?" Tho driver of the truck—Von Beltz—leaned out in the Stygian dark. "We saw a light ahead I" he whispered. "Where?" Tony asked. "Over the hills." Tony strained his eyes; and against the aurora and tho stars he saw a scries of summits. He could even see the metal road that wound over the hills, gleaming faintly. But there was no light. Not a sound emerged from the fifty human beings packed in the caravan behind. The wind blew—a raw wind. Then there was a soft, sighing ulu- 1 going to embark for one of her People's cities—at once. , 'Sht Is long, fortunately—" Pliiunson, who had once openly Istcd that Tony should not be- I their leader, and who had wel- f the reappearance of Heni now spoke dubiously. ^ not in favor of that policy. »e the blast tubes—" Icannot question It," Tony an- T<1.

"I'm In no for the responsibility like 1 Had for a while." Tony looked " with gratitude burning In his ei> s, then?" Ransdell asked, t j" was better for Tony; action | n 's forte In life. He pulled f rom MB pocket. "Copy of 50 miles west of where Philadelphia would be, while the city James nnd I explored is say a hundred miles north of Pittsburgh. That's about correct." "We'll move?" Vanderbilt asked. "Everything?" "No. People—necessities. Come back for the rest." Williamson stepped forward. "Congratulate you, Tony, glad." Others congratulated Tony. Then he began to issue orders. The exiles from earth prepared to march at last from the wilderness. They prepared hastily nnd in the dark. An hour after Issuing his orders, Tony stepped into Hendron's house. Eve was there. "How is he?" She shook her head. "Delirious." Tony stared at the girl. "I won- dei—" She se'r/ed his hand. "I'm glad you said that!" "Why?" "I don't know. Perhaps because I'm half-hysterical with fatigue and anxiety. Perhaps because I want to justify him. But possibly because I believe—" "In God?" "In some kind of God." "I do, also, Eve. Have your father ready In half an hour." "It'll be dangerous to move him." "I know—" Their voices had unconsciously risen—and now from the other room came the voice of Hendron: "Tony! I know you are there! Hurry them. For surely the Midianites are preparing against you." "Yes, Cole. We'll go soon." In the night nnd the cold again, Tony looked toward the aurora- veiled stars, as If he expected almost to catch sight of God there. Vanderbilt called to him, calling softly: "The first truck Is ready." "Dispatch it." "Right. And tlie second will start in thirty minutes?" "Exactly." "Which will you take?" "Second." "And who commands the first?" "Ransdell." Vanderbilt went away. Tony watched the first truck with Its two trailers—one piled full of goods, tho other Jammed with people. They were like soldiers going to war, or like refugees being evacuated from an endangered position. They lumbered through the dark and out of sight—silhouettes against lation. Tony gripped Von Beltz's arm. "What was that?" "God knows." .They strained their eyes. Tony saw it then: a shape— ji lightless and Incomprehensible shape, moving slowly on the gleaming surface of tho road—toward them. Tony pointed ahead. "Something. Dipped into a valley. There!" Again the soft moaning sound. Again the meaningless shape topped a rise and slithered along the road toward them. Its course was crooked, and suggested the motion of ah animal that was sniffing its 'We come from earth," he said. "We're Americans." She swayed dazedly, and Williamson took her arm. "Hotter duck the lights," Tony said. They were in the dark again. The girl sniffled and shook herself in n little shuddering way, and suddenly poured out a babble of words to which they listened with astonishment. "I've been a prisoner—or something like it—since—the destruction of earth. Today I escaped in this van. I'd been running it. That was my job. I knew you were somewhere out here, and I wanted to tell you about us." "We'll walk back," Tony said, and took the girl's arm. "We're Americans. You seem to know about us. Please try to explain yourself." "I will." She paused and thought. They walked toward the silent, waiting train. "You know that other Space Ships left earth besides yours?" Tony said grimly. "We do." "You've been attacked. Of course. One ship left from eastern Asia. Its crew were mixed nationalities." "We know that." "They're living In a city—a city that belonged to the original inhabitants of this place, north of here." "And we know that, too." "Good. A ship also left the Alps. An English ship. I was on that ship. The eastern Asiatic expedition came through safely. We came down In fog. We fell into a lake. Half of us, nearly, were drowned. The Russians and Japs—and the others—found us the next day. They fought us. Since then— they've made us work for them. Whoever wouldn't, they killed." "How many—" "There were three hundred and sixty-seven of us left," she said. "Now—there are about three hundred and ten." The truck loomed up ahead. Tony spoke rapidly. "We are moving from our camp nt night. We intend DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF LIGHT NEEDED A survey shows that 22 per cent of children finishing gvtide school have damaged eye sight. When they have finished college, 40 per cent are so affected. At age forty, 05 per cent suffer from visual defects. And at age sixty, 05 per cent have eye defects. This regrettable Increase In eye troubles Is In many Instances caused by eye strain resulting from read- Ing, studying, sewing at night with poor light and not enough light. Science measures light in terms of foot-candles. A foot-candle Is the amount of light one standard candle shines on n surface one foot away. For seeing one's way around and performing ordinary tasks which do not require seeing very small objects, 5 foot-candles is sufficient. For reading coarse print and large stitch sewing, you can get along with 10 foot-candles. For continued reading of ordinary print, or doing ordinary sewing, you need at least 20 foot-candles. For reading fine print and fine sewing, you require 30 foot-candles, ov more. Your light may look bright, but It la the Illumination you get on your work that saves your eyes from strain; and this diminishes rapidly the farther away you are from your lamp. Seated with your paper or work J! feet away from your lamp, it will require a light of at least 275 candlepower to produce the 30 foot-candles needed to be certain your eyes have enough light to do their work with- out danger of strain and permanent Injury. If you use electricity, your light company will recommend the right size bulbs to use. If your homo Is not wired, one of the new 300 candlepower kerosene or gasoline pressure mantle lamps will supply plenty of "live" natural light for every home need. It takes tlie pressure to give you all the light you should have. way along. "Mein Gottl" Von Beitz had seen it. Duquesne shrugged, nnd murmured to Tony: "It comes this way on the road. We must meet it. Perhaps it Is an infernal machine. An enemy scout." Tony reached Into the front compartment of tlie truck and brought out two rifles. Then he stuffed three grenades into his pocket. He turned to the trailer. "Vanderbilt!" he whispered. "Something's coming toward us on the road. We're going up to meet it. You're in charge here. If I fire— one, two, one,—that means try to rush through on full power—without stopping for us." "Right. Bing—blng-bing—bing— and we lunge." Tony, Dumiosne nnd Von Beitz hurried to a point about three hundred yards from the trailers. There they waited. The ululatlon was louder now. Then It topped a nearer hill. It was a hulk In the dark. It wavered along the road at the pace of a man running. "Machinery!" Tony said softly. "Ready! I'll challenge it when it gets near. If it goes on, we'll bomb it."

You'll come with us. My name, by tlio way, is Tony Drake." He felt her hand grasp his own. "Mine is—or was—Lady Cynthia Crulksliank." "Peter!" Vanderbilt sprang from the trailer and ran up tlie road. "You safe, Tony?" "Safe. This Is Lady Cynthia Crulkslmnk. She'll toll you her story. 1 think we'd hotter move." Von Beitz was already in his seat. Tony vaulted aboard. The train started. Lady Cynthia began n detailed account of tho landing of the English ship. Tony moved over beside Eve Hendron. "Oh—Tony—I was terrified!" He took her liaiul, nnd they listened to Lady Cynthia. When she had finished, long and dark miles had been put behind. The uncomfortable passengers had stood spellbound, chilly, swaying, listening to her narrative. Now they questioned her. "Why did the Midianites selxe you?" one asked. "Midianites?" "That's what we call the 'Asiatic Expedition.'" The Englishwoman laughed softly. "Oh. Oh, I see. Joshua 1 Not Inapt. Whj—because they want to run everything and rvile everything on this planet. And because their men greatly outnumbered their women." She spoke bitterly. "We'd chosen the pride of England. And, pretty faces—" "Why," some one else asked, "did you wabble so horribly In the van you drove?" "Jiecause I had to turn my lights out when I saw you coming, and 1 could only stay on the road by driving very slowly and letting the front wheels run off the edge. When they did, I yanked the car back onto the pavement." Several people laughed. The van rumbled on toward the promised land. Some one else asked: "What did you call this planet?" Lady Cynthia replied: "We In our ship—thought—just Britannia. But the people who captured us called it Aslatlca. You must realize that when I say captured, I don't mean that In .the sense that we were Jailed. We lived among them —were part of them. Only—we weren't allowed arms, and we were forced to live by their laws." "What laws?" (TO BE CONTINUED.) AnimaU Correct Deformitie* Zoologists assert that while odd Ities of structure happen frequently In wild animals they soon disappear, because their offspring tend more and more to lose them and so gradually return to the normal type.
