Tony looked with astonishment at the man. He had not Imagined Ransdell as a reader of the Scriptures. "We must go on. He'd want It," said Williamson. Tony nodded. "The first van has left your camp?" "Yes." "And the second?" "Fifteen minutes ngo." "It Is about four miles from the road to your cnmp. But I think those tractors can pull all the way In. They will bring nothing but people— and they'll be able to accommodate every one." He looked at his- watch and pondered. "They should be here before daybreak.

There were on almost every enraptured Jotenance. a strange thing happened. Hendron stirred, dropped a tear on his face as she bent over him. Hendron put her hand aside and slowly, majestically, sat up in his improvised cot. "Father!" she said. He was staring nt the city. "Cole!" Tony whispered. Cole Hendron stood now. "Tony, my son !" His words rang like iron. "Yes—" The greatest scientist Earth had ever produced stretched out his two hands toward the city. "The Promised Land 1" Now his voice was thunder. Eve sobbed. Tony felt a lump swelling in his throat. Hendron looked up to the cold stars—to Arcturus and SIrius and Vega. "Father!" he said In a mighty voice. "We thank thee!" Then he pitched forward. Tony caught him, or lie would have fallen to the earth. He lifted him back on his pallet 'and opened his coat. Dodson pushed through the herded people. The head of the physician bent over the old man's chest. He looked up. "His brain Imagined this," said Dodson. "lie brought us here in his two hands, and with his courage as our spiritual Maine we shall remain 1" It was an epitaph. Kve wept silently. Tony stood behind her with his hands on her shoulders — mute consolation and strength. "Hendron's dead," was whispered through the throng. The city was now looming in front of them. They could see presently that the great gate was open. Figures stood beside it, motlonlessly watching their approach. Uansdell had been one of those waiting. Tony leaped out, and Uansdell smiled. "Welcome!" "Hendron's dead." ''Oh!" The people began to alight—bii they were quiet and made no at tempt to celebrate their security Others came up. "We'll take his body Into one of these buildings," said Tony. "In the morning we'll bury him—out a meal at daybreak. Prepare for five hundred—we're almost that many." Shirley left. Hastily Tony dispatched others from his Improvised headquarters. Soon he was alone with Itansdell. "I got your slenal," lie said. "You wanted every one cleaved out but me. Why?" Itansdell glanced at the door. "For a very good reason, Tony. I've something Important to tell you." "What?" "There's somebody else in this city." Tony smiled. "I know that feeling, .lames and I had it. You get used to it." Ransdell shrugged. "I'm not queasy—yon know. I don't get those feelings. Hero's my evidence: I drove the lirst caravnn. When I reached the gates, I saw something whisk around a distant building. It might have been a man—it might have been the. end of one of those little automobiles. . . . Then, after I'd started thinKR going, I took a walk. I found this." He handed Tony half of a sand wich. A bite had been taken out of it—a big bite. Tlie other half and the filling were missing. But tlie bread was fresh. Tony stared at it. "Good Lord!" "That bread would bo stale In twelve hours, lying as it was on lie street." "Anything pise?". .. . "Tills building was open. The others were shut. We used your nstructions for getting into them. ',ut in here thlnirs were disturbed, 'hairs, tables. There was a ball of paper on tlie floor of this room. Nothing on it." Itansdell produced , Bronson Betans undoubtedly solved the problem of obtaining power from the Inner heat of the planet, and probably learned to utilize the radium-bearing strata under the outer crust. They must have perfected some apparatus to make practical use of that power. It Is possible, but highly Improbable, that the apparatus came through the passage of cold and darkness In space In such state that when the air thawed out and the crust conditions approached normal, It set Itself in operation automatically. "What is far more probable Is that the Midlanites have discovered one Installation of the apparatus. We know from Lady Cynthia that they are months ahead of us in experimenting with Bronson Betan machinery. I believe that they have put In order and set going the power-impulse machinery connected with the city which they have occupied. "The impulses from that installation may be carried by cables tinder the ground; more probably The word sauce has, In culinary matters, divers meanings. It may be fruit cooked with sugar, until It Is of the consistency of a white sauce, or it may have the pieces of the fruit, or whole berries, unbroken.In a rich liquid of delectable flavor. It may be a mellow, smooth, thin paste highly seasoned and variously colored, a rich sauce for meat or fish or fowl. Or It may be a sweet creamy liquid for puddings and desserts. The time for discrimination in the significance of the word has come, however. Some sauces are in reality, compotes. This is when the berries or cut fruits remain unbroken, or as nearly so as the kind permits. For example applesauce Is not a sauce but a compote when pieces are unbroken. It is a much more epicurean dish among cooked fruits, than tlie sauce, which is of strained fruit, and is used much as is a relish. Applesauce is a side disli for pork, and other meats. A compote of np- plcs may be so served, but It may be served for a dessert with cake or rich cookies. Each has Its place and Is a favorite dish. Many of the dishes once termed sauces have evolved into relishes, for example, spiced fruits are accounted relishes today, while mashed ripe fruits, or slightly cooked and lavishly sweetened fruits become sauces well liked for Ice creams and other desserts. I,t is the sweet sauce that Is featured for desserts. The sauce with zest is for meat, or fish, entrees of like kind, and for poultry and birds, etc. For the group of sauces with zest there is one foundation, a roux which may be while or brown according to whether the (lour has been browned In the butter or riot. A rich roux has equal parts butter and flour, which is thinned with stock, or with milk. The French chefs use stock, and scorn n sauce of this kind that is otherwise made creamy. Water can be used for thinning a founda- ;ion of one tablespoonl'ul of butter and one of flour—or two of Hour, but such a sauce is scarcely worthy tlie name, it is so Inferior. Itoux of either kind Is a basic sauce, from which many others can be made. Another group of sauces with zest and lamb Is one. This has vinegar and mint as principal Ingredients with sugar to mellow It. Then there are various kinds with mayonnaise, as a base, or the mayonnaise Itself, a very rich sauce for salads, meaU, and fish. Tartar sauce chieily fot flsh has mayonnaise for a foundation, with other Ingredients added, such as a Httle onion, paisley, olives, capers, and pickles all minced. There are endless kinds of milad sauces with mayonnaise ns the ba?« such as Russian dressing, Creo!« sauce, Thousand Island dressing. Oi a boiled dressing may be substituted for the olive oil mayonnaise. C Boll Syndicate.—WNU Service. Always a New Car! MAKES THE FINISH LAST LONGER Simoniz your car!

Though they plainly remembered the thrills and terrors of the Might, they could not completely understand that the world was gone, that they had left it forever. Tills was to them merely another, more magic domain—an enthralling land of Oz, with especially splendid sights, "Father!" said Hendron in a Mighty Voice. "We Thank Theel - Then He Pitched Forward. there, under the sun and the stars -in the bare earth of Bronson Do'dson, Duquesne and Kve sal In a room with Hendron's body—a room of weird and gorgeous decoration, a room of august dimensions a room Indirectly illuminated. If they bad but known they would hare been glad that Cole Hendron lay to the hall of the edifice that had been the home of the greatest scientists of Bronson Beta some Incalculable age before them.

The Midlands might have explored here— and left. The Other People had ln-cad—like <>urs more or less; and this isn't familiar—exactly. It looks like whole wheat—" Tony grinned. "You aren't seriously suggesting that the Other People may he alive here?" "Why not?" "Well—why not? Anyway—some one is. Spies—ghosts—some one." It was growing light when the trucks came back from the other camp. Tony was busy with hot soup when I'eter Vatiderbllt approached him. "Where's Von Helta?" "I don't know.' 1 "Didn't lie see you?' 1 "No." Vamlerljllt scowled. "Funny! uunrU-r of uti hour ago I saw him i* few streets from tlie square here. ;ie was on his way to tell you soinc- hing about the power. He turned a corner. I thought I heard the first faint part of a yell—choked off. I hustled around the same cor- ler but he was out of slglit. It seemed odd—he'd have had to run pretty fast to make the next cor- jer So I jammed along looking for him. No sign of him. Thought ie was reporting to you. But I went back. Nothing to see at the spot where he'd left me. I—" Tony was calling. "Taylor—Williamson—Smith — Alexander — look for Von Beltz. Arm yourselves." But two hours later Von Beltz had not been found. Day broke with Its long, deliberate dawn, while the strange, eerie glow of the night light that Illumined the city faded. There was no sound In the streets but the scuffing feet of the sentinels whom Tony had posted. Now the night watch was with all the buildings strange In shape iind resplendent In colors, with tiers of streets and breathtaking bridges, liehind the children Shirley Cotton and Lady Cynthia strolled and stared; and along with them went Eliot James, who could not—and who did not attempt—to conceal his continued astonishments. "Don't run too far abend of us," Shirley bade the children in a tone to avoid frightening them. For danger dangled over these splendid silent thoroughfares apparently tin- tenanted, yet capable of snatching away and keeping Von Ueltz. Was it conceivable that survivors of tlie builders—the Other People—haunted these unrulned remains of their own creation? Or was it that the ruthless men from Earth — the •Midlanites 11 — as Hendron had called them—had sent their spies ahead to hide in this metropolis before its occupation by Hendrou's people? Tony called a council of the Central Authority to consider, especially, this problem. Ten men chosen more or less arbitrarily by Tony himself composed the Committee of the Central Authority—four from the survivors of the hundred who had come from Hendron's camp, six from Uansdell's greater group; and these, of course, Included Ransdell himself. Such was the Central Authority Improvised by Tony and accepted by his followers to deal with the strange and Immediate emergencies arising from the occupation of this great empty city by less than four hundred people, Ignorant of It. The searching parties, as they returned or sent back couriers with reports, appeared before this committee.
