Of course, the Pyramids themselves were their most tremendous attempt to deny death." "Yes," said Tony. "Over and over again, I remember, Tony, they declared that he, whom they put nwny, lived.

"'Men fall; their name Is not.' years dead, the hall wherein lay every little thing?" said a cheerful voice at Tony's side. He faced about, nnd confronted the red-haired girl whom he had met In Hansdell's camp, nnd who bad not been selected for the voyage from Earth; brr name had not been on the lists in Michigan. Tony remembered her name, however—Marian .Tackson. She had been an acrobatic dancer In St. Louis. "Can you bent this place? Cnn you tie It?' 1 Marian challenged Tony cheerfully. "Ony, but not gaudy, I'd call It. D'yon ngree?" "I agree," acquiesced Tony, grateful for tbe let-down. The girl might be mentally a moron; but morons, be was discovering, had their points. Tills girl simply coud not take anything seriously. "But tbe taxi service here is terrible," objected Mnrian. "We hope to Improve it," offered Tony. The girl walked away. "Don't go into any of the buildings alone!" Tony reminded. "And even on the streets, keep close to other people 1" Marian halted, looking up. "Hello! Hello!" she cried out softly. "Look at tlie tnxies!" And she pointed to one of tlie wide spiral ramps to the right. Down tbe ramp Tony saw descending two P.rcmson Hetn vehicles of the type discovered wrecked beside the first-found roadway, nnd duplicates of which were stored by the hundreds In the first Sealed City he had visited on his exploring flight. Here there were hundreds or thousands more of the machines. The two that appeared were followed by two more, and these by two larger and heavier vehicles not of the passenger type, but of truck design. "Look!" cried Marlnn 1 "They got 'em going. Iley! Hey!" she hailed them. Tony thrilled, too, but tempered his triumph by realization that, since the cars came In sight they had been descending, so that they might not be under power at all, but having been pushed to the incline of tbe ramp, were coasting. But when the drivers gained the ground in rapid procession, Instantly they steered up the ascending used that, too. Here we have come upon Impulses which exhibit somo of the phenomena of electricity, and others of radio-activity. WP do not understand it; but wo do find ourselves able to use It." "But the power station below ground, in order and In operation 1" objected Tony. "I think," said Mnltby, "it should not have been described as a power station, but rather as a mere distributing station. The power, I believe, does not originate in the station which we discovered, and In which we cbnrged the batteries of these machines. Our station is, I think, merely a terminus for the generating station." "The generating station—• At this, Mnltby and Williamson, thetechnicians.both gazed nt theEng- lisb girl; but she, without making direct reply, nodded to Maltby to proceed. "She believes that the chief generating station is under the city of our Midinnites. It Is n far larger city than this, nnd wns probably the metropolis of the planet—or at least of this continent. She knows that the techniclnns with the Aslnt- ic party got much of the machinery of the city going weeks ago. "We believe that we get the power here because they cannot use It themselves without giving us some of it. Probably much of the power Is dlssemlnnted without wires or cnbles. Undoubtedly the light Impulses nre—those that light this city nt night and illuminate Interior apartments by day. "These impulses probably are sprend In a manner similar to radio waves. Williamson feels sure that power In the charging station cannot be so explnlned. He feels sure thnt tbe charging station below this city must have a cable connection —underground, undoubtedly—with the generating station. "Now, if that generating station is under the city of the Midianites, either they know they are sending us that power—or they don't know it. If they know it, they may be unable to cut off our power without nlso cutting off their own; but If they don't know they nre now giving us power, they may find It out at nny moment—and cut us off. Old Fashioned Patchwork Quilts Grandmother Clark's Patchwork Quilt Designs By GRANDMOTHER CLARK From all indications quilt makers will be busy this winter making more guilts. Quilts nre still very attractive for needle workers, and nny suggestion on this work will be welcomed. Patchwork Quilt making is much easier today than during Colonial days. Patches nre more easily obtained. Diagrams and cutouts for patches nnd books of instruction nre printed. All of these make the work easier and more quilts are being made. Grandmother Clark's Book No. 20 on Patchwork Quilts contains 30 quilts with cutting diagram for patches, also several ways to assemble 12 and 18-inch quilt blocks. This book contains Information and diagrams for the quilts shown above and many other old designs. Send us 15 cents for this book No. 20 and receive it by mall. Address Home Craft Co., Dept. D.

Von Beit,, a leader, isappears. The Egyptian psalmist of the Pyramid Text sang, Tony: ''Men fall; Their name is not. Seize thou King Tetl by his arm, Take thou King Tetl to the sky, Thnt he die not on earth, Among men." Tony reminded her, very gently: 'Your father did not die on enrth-" "No; he escnped to the sky, bring- .ng us nil with him. ... There's the sun. How small the sun has become, Tony." "We are farther from the sun, Eve, than men of enrth have ever been." "But we're going farther away, "Yes." "Shall we swing back? Or shall we keep on out nnd out into the utter cold? If Bronson Betn drifts out into the cold without return there is no escnpe." "No," snid Tony, nnd combated the chill within him. "And could they know?" Eve persisted "They could calculate— and undoubtedly 'did-thnt the path of this planet has become an elipse, that It will turn back again toward the sun; but it never has turned back toward the sun, Tony. Not once! This planet appeared out of space, approached the sun nnd swung about It, and now Is going away from the sun. Thnt we know; anc that Is all we do know; the rest we can merely calculate." •You mean," questioned Tony "that your father said soraethlns privately, during those days he was dying, to make you believe h° was deceiving us?" "No," said Eve. "Yet I wonder, cannot help wondering. But If we keep on away from the sun ! Don- think. Tony, I'm—" "What?" be demanded as she rai tered and stopped. "Unprepared," she said; and sh recited: "'Thy seats among the gods abide; He leans upon the with bis shoulder. "'Thy odor Is as their odor, thj pirnl on the other side, and put- ing on power, climbed even faster han they had dropped. Thnt ended any doubt of their •neans of propulsion. Tony felt his .calp tingling. One more secret if the mechanics of these people million years dead was in pos- icsslon of Ills own people! ICliot James stepped from tbe first vlth n flourish. "Your cnr, sir!" He doffed his battered felt hat. From the second cnr stepped the Cngllsh girl, Lady Cynthia Crulk- ihank. Williamson piloted the third; lad; Taylor and Peter VnnderblH vere the other drivers. Williamson, the electrical engineer, made his report to Tony as hundred others gathered around. "\Ve have discovered the tech- ilqne of charging the batteries, which are beyond anything we had on earth," ho said with envious admiration, "both in simplicity nnd in economy of power application. There is n station underground which they used. We nre using It. All the batteries we have discovered were discharged or had discharged themselves, naturally, in the tremendous time that the planet was drifting through space; but two out of three batteries proved capable of receiving a charge when placed In sockets of the charging station." "You mean you found the charging stfltlon with Its power on?" Tony asked. Williamson looked at Maltby as If to enlist his support when reply- Ing. "We found the power on." "What sort of power?" "Something between the electrical Impulses with which we were familiar on enrth, and radio-activity. We believe the Bronson Beta scientists, before they died — or disappeared—learned to blend the two." "Blend?" asked Tony. Maltby took up the task of explanation. "You remember that on earth we didn't even know what electricity was; but we knew how to use it for some of our purposes. Still less did we understand the exact nature of radlo-actlvlty; but we Duquesne thinks the latter; so he has remained below with all the men he needs to keep all the charging sockets busy, while we"—Maltby smiled deprecatlngly—"allowpd ourselves this celebration before busying ourselves above." "At what?" asked Tony, half stupidly, half dazedly. "At what here above?" Too much wns being told him nt once; too much—if one had had to think about It. Marian Jackson, who had remained beside him,, had heard it all; but it had not confused her. It had merely amused her. She went to Eliot James and teased him to show her tlie controls of his machine; nnd she sat in It and started It. "Easy! Easy!" Eliot yelled, and running beside her, shut off tbe power. "It's perfectly easy nnd obvious In its steering and controls. Anybody cnn run it; but from the little I've seen, It must do over two hundred miles nn hour, or three hundred, If you open it up. So don't open It up!" The other drivers argued only less emphatically with other experimenters, and the crowd followed the machines. "You see,"Maltby was explaining to Tony, "now we know how to use their power we ought to get other things going besides the vehicles; we ought to get a part of the city, at least, In some sort of operation." "Of course." Tony comprehended. "Of course." And lie led Lady Cynthia aside, with Williamson nnd Maltby. "When we have power," he challenged the English girl, "bow much of Its use can you show us?" "I know how to get In and out of the buildings which are operated by electricity or whatever H Is. I know how they run the kitchens and the lights and baths, and things like that." Tony said: "Then you had better take these men through n few buildings. Show them everything you've fifty-one, superintendent of a light nnd power company, placed u stick of dynamite in his mouth nnd lighted the fuse. It blew his head to bits.

He slumped down before the beautiful desk which bad served its original purpose countless years ago when this world whirled about Borne other star. He still was alone. Two tiny Images of men—men not of the world, but of this planet- decorated the desk, one standing at each of the far corners of the desktop. They were not 'secured to the metal top, but could be plucked from their fastening without break- Ing. Tony toyed with th.em; they reminded him of little images brought from Egypt. There had been a name for them in the world. "Ush—nsbab—" He could not quite recall It. (TO BE CONTINUED.)
