LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA LOVE FINDS A WAY Virgil F. Wlnslow was testifying In a Los Angeles court In an attempt to gain a divorce from Snrah O. Wlnslow, his wife for 85 years. "She was domineering—" his voice halted and tears came to his eyes. "I love my wife!- 1 can't go through with this!" he shouted. \VnlkIng awny from the witness stand, he went to his wife and embraced her. The case was dismissed.

"What a nice mative-and-yellow shirt? Want a pair of red-and-sllver .shorts?" "Any rugs? Any old Iron? What's the trouble? Your clothing depart ment running out of orders?" "Nope. And when we do, we'll revive fashions—so you'll have to patronize Shirley Cotton's mills, whether you want to or not Hig gins Is going to present some patterns—" "He never will, I trust." "I'll bribe him with a waistcoat In Bronson Beta orchids and mushrooms. By the way—how long have you been sitting In this cramped hole?" "All morning. Why?" "Then you haven't heard about the green rain." James looked nt her with surprise. "Green rain?" "Sure. Outdoors. Didn't amount to anything—but for about ten minutes it rained green." "I'll be d—d! What was It?" Shirley shrugged. "Search me. A green sky is bad enough. But a green rain—well, anything can happen. Higgins has bottles full of whatever it was—more like snow than rain—only not frozen. It misted the dome a little. And then —you probably haven't heard the rumor about Von Beitz that was go- Ing around." "News?" "Not news. A rumor. Scandal, I'd call it People have been say- Ing this morning that the spies hiding here are undoubtedly from the Midianite gang. Some of them are Germans. Von Beltz was a German. So they say that he wasn't kidnaped, but that he had always belonged to them, and merely Joined them at the first opportunity." i Eliot James swore. "That's a lousy libel. Why, Von Beltz Is one of the whitest men I know. A great brain, and nerve! I fought side by side with thnt guy in Michigan, and—why—h—II He's practically a brother of mine. Why do you think I've been in every corner of this burg looking? Because Von Beitz wouldn't tnrn us In for his life—that's why." The handsome Shirley Cotton nodded. "I agree. But everybody's nervous these days." "Heaven knows there's enough to make them nervous—" They were Interrupted by a banging on the door. "Come In!" James called. The door swung Inward automatically. On the threshold stood Duquesne. He was ordinarily of to his previous guest . "What's it about?" "The source of our power." James leaned forward. "You found it?" "Not specifically. I have clung to the theory thnt power was generated under the city. When we learned that the interior of the planet was still warm, it seemed plausible that the power was generated from thnt heat—deep in the earth. So I explored. It was difficult All the electrical connections are built into the very foundation of the city. They cannot be traced. My assistants meanwhile studied the plans of the city—we found many. The clue In them pointed always toward a place in the earth. We finally—this morning—located that place. It is far underground. But it is not a generating plant. No." "What is It, then?" James asked. "A relay station. A mere series of transformers. Stupendous in size and capacity. From It lead the great conduits—out, underground, deep down—toward the north. The station for this city Is not here. It is, as we suspected, in some other city—or place. And all the cities near here derive their power from that place. This Is the explanation of why, when the lights came in one city, they came In nil. It was a central plant which had been turned on—and which supplied every city." James leaned back. "I see. You mean that now It Is sure that they have control of our power." "Exactly." "And they can shut It off whenever they wish." "Precisely." "So that—when It gets colder— they can cut our power and not only put out our lights, but stop our heat." "Right" James tapped on his desk with the pencil he had been using. "How much chance," he asked, "have we of setting up a power station of our own—a station big enough to heat a couple of buildings, and light them, all winter?" Duquesne shrugged. "What do we use for fuel?" CHAPTER XI H IGOINS entered the dining hall at luncheon time In great excitement Instead of taking his place- he went to Tony and spoke for a moment Tony stood, then, and struck a note on a gong. Immediate silence was the response. "Doctor Hlggins," said Tony, "has made a discovery." Hlggins 'stood. This ritual had been followed In the announcement of hundreds of discoveries relative to Bronson Beta, and the life, arts and sciences of Its original Inhabitants. "It concerns the greenness of the sky," Hlggins said. "We have all remarked upon it. We have agreed that normal light polarization would always produce blue. We have agreed that any gases which would cause a green tint in atmosphere— halogens, for example—would also be poisonous. "This morning at seven-eighty, Bronson Beta time, we had a green rain of nine and a half Bronson Beta minutes' duration. 1 collected the precipitated substance. It proved to be the explanation of our atmospheric color." He took n vial from his pocket and held It up. Its contents were green. "The color is caused by this. A new form of life— a type of plant unknown on earth. Arms were taken from racks, and at vantage points near the gates, men and women—some still carrying hastily snatched bits of food- took their posts. The plane, meanwhile, had reached the dome of the city. It did not fly over, however, It did not drop bombs, or a message. Instead, It circled twice to lose altitude, and from a hatch In its fuselage a white flag was run up on a miniature mast Then H landed. By the time it touched the ground more than two hundred persons were on hand to see. The transparent cover of their city gave them B feeling of security. However, the flng of trace upon the plane did not encourage them to any careless maneuver. The ship was expertly brought down to the ground, but afterward it behaved badly. It lurched craz- lly, hit a rock, smashed a wheel, dragged a wing—and Its motor was cut. Then, half wrecked, it stopped. There it stood, like a bird shot down, for five full minutes. No one moved Inside It No one mode an effort to descend. Tony gathered his lieutenants and advisers together. "Iluse to get the gate open," Williams said. "I think so," Tony agreed. A thought moved through the mind of Ellot James. He went to SUNDAY SCHOOL ••-LESSON-:- By REV. P. B. FITZWATBR, D. D.. Member of Faculty, Moofly Bible Institute of Chicago. © Western Newspaper Union.

No. They would jlow up the roads and bomb the trucks.

The Frenchman stepped Into the room, and the door closed behind him. "I have searched everywhere." James leaped to his feet. "You don't mean that Tony—" "Oh—no, not lost. Just busy somewhere." Duquesne regarded the man and woman for a moment. 'I was In a hurry to find htm, because I have some very Interesting information. I shall tell you. It Is for the moment confidential." . "Sit," said the writer, as he had 'So I explored ... My Assistants Meanwhile Studied the Plans of the City—We Found Many. The Clue In Them Pointed Always To. ward a Place In the Earth. We Finally—This Morning—Located That Place." any sort of blockade—or cut wood under fire from an enemy. No." "The river, then?" Duquesne spread his hands. "You have imagination, my boy. But already it is too cold. And to build a dam and hydro-electric plant takes months. I have thought of those things." "In other words," Shirley said slowly, "If you are right about the Mldlaultes being In possession of the power plant, we'll have to take I it away from' them—or beat thorn ! somehow. Or else—" James grinned bitterl.v. "\Vuy not Just leave It at, 'or else"/" You are all familiar with the alga In the sea—minute plants whlc! floated In the oceans of earth 1: such numbers as to change th color In many places. Very wel The higher atmosphere of Bronso Beta Is crowded by plants In som ways similar. These plants are 1 effect tiny balloons. They germ, nate on the surface of the earth np parently, In the spring. As the grow (the ground everywhere mus be covered by them) they manufac ture within themselves hydrogen gas They swell with It until, like smal balloons, they rise.. Their hydroge holds them suspended high In th atmosphere during the summer an fall—trillions upon countless trll lions of them. They make a leve of thin, greenish fog overhead. Ex amlned microscopically, they revea their secret at once. "There Is sufficient carbon dioxide and moisture to nourish them They live by simple photosynthesis; anc It Is the chlorophyll they contain which makes them green—a charac teristic of all terrestrial plants ex cept the parasites. These plants reproduce from spores." Hlggins sat down. His brief description was greet ed by applause In which the botan Ists and biologists were most vehement. Carter stood up. "About their precipitation, Hlggins?" Again Hlggins took the floor. "I have only a theory to offer. Temperature. I believe that, althougl they are resistant to cold, an adequate drop In temperature will cause them to crack and lose their hydrogen. Then, naturally, they fall to earth." "So you anticipate more green rain?" "1 do—n tremendous volume of it. And I may add that these plants flx nitrogen, so thnt their dead bodies, so to speak, will constitute a line fertilizer, laid annually upon the soil of the entire planet." Carter nodded. "Excellent, Higgins! Have you made calculations relative to the 'possible and probable depth of -green rain' we may expect?" "Only the roughest sort. But to give the color-Intensity we observe In the sky 1 should Imagine that the atmosphere contained enough of these vegetable balloons to cover the ground to a depth of two feet, at the least. Of course, decuy would soon reduce the green blanket to a half inch or less; but In their expanded state two feet would be conservative as an estimate." During that noonday meal the guards on the north gate saw one of the Midianlte planes moving toward the city. It was not uncommon for nu ene my plane to puss across their range of vision This plane, however was evidently headed for the city of Hemlron. A swift car from the north gate brought news of the danger. Tony. "it might be Von Beltz He might be hurt—" Tony lifted a pair of powerful glasses to his eyes. He saw several areas of holes on tlie plane's side. JJachine-gun bullet holes. "Open the gate a crack—and lock It behind me," he commanded. He stalked to the portal. It yawned for an Instant, He went out. Jack Taylor, winking at the men who manipulated the gate, followed close behind Tony. Tony turned after the gate clanged, and saw Jack. He grinned The people Inside the city whn watched, were deeply moved. Tony's decision to accept the danger- Jack's pursuit of his leader into peril—those were the things of which the saga of Hendron's hundreds were made. They went cautiously toward the broken ship. No sound came from It. The crowd watching held Its breath. The two men were under the shattered wing. . . . N OW th were climbing the fuselage. 'Tony looked cautiously through a window, inside the plane, alone on Its noor, In a puddle of blood lay Von Beltz. Tony yanked the door open. Taylor followed him inside. Von Beltz was badly wounded, but still breathing. They lifted him a little. He opened his eyes. A stern smile came upon his Teutonic face. "Good!" he mumbled. "I escaped. They have the power city. I hey plan to cut you off as soon as it Is cold enough to freeze you to terms, I do not know where the pow er city Is-i t Is not like the other cities. He closed his eyes "Did they kidnap you here?" Tony asked. He thought that Von Beltz nod led an affirmative. Prom the outside came a yell of varnlng from many throats. Tony ooked. The gate was open. Peo Pie were pointing. Jn the north vas a fleet of enemy planes wing- ng toward the spot. 'Hurry," Tony said to Taylor ike his feet. Gently—and fast.' I hey re going to try to bomb us be ye we get Von Beitz's Information icls to the others!" The watchers ceased to be mere pectators, and poured out of the ity.

The prophet stood In the gate of the temple in order that the multitudes might hear him. The occasion was the coming together of the people from all over the country to attend a feast. From this place of prominence Jeremiah called the people to obedience. I. What God Requires (vv. 1-7). 1. Amend your ways (v. 3). This means that their course of living should be reformed by exchanging bad deeds for good ones. On the basis of this change God would permit them to remain In their city and country. Failure to comply with this demand would eventuate In their expulsion. 2. Personal experience (v. 4). The people regarded the temple as a charm against evil, irrespective of the condition of their hearts. Without a heart experience, the most sacred Institution and ordinances are valueless. Trusting in religious forms while lacking a vital experience is the height of folly. 3. Social Justice (v. 5). The proof of their having reformed was the execution of Justice between man and his neighbor. The evidence of one's being in touch with God is lils fair dealing with his fellow men. 4. Not to oppress the helpless (v. 6). The stranger would likely be Ignorant of the laws of the land. The widows and orphans would usually be imposed upon. Protection and defense of the weak is a sure sign of godliness. 5. Not walk after other gods (v. 6). The worship of Idols and conformity to heathen customs go hand In hand. True morality is determined by the Individual's attitude toward God. II. Some Solemn Warnings (vv. 8-15). 1. The teachings of false prophets' (vv. 8-11). These false prophets taught the people that attention to ceremony and observance of. religious form exempted them from strict attention to morals. Those who heeded the words of the lying prophets did not hesitate to steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, and practice idolatry. They would even come into the Lord's house and claim freedom to practice such abominations. The sacred temple Itself, filled with such worshipers, would be a den of robbers. 2. By the destruction of Shiloh (vv. 12-15). God caused his tabernacle to be set up In Shiloh, but in Eli's time he gave it Into the hands of the Philistines because of the idolatry of the people (Ps. 78:5000). The prophet declared that God would do even so with the temple, the city and the whole country. This he had already done with Israel and the northern kingdom. III. The Hopeless Condition of the People (vv. 16-20). Their propensity to do evil was so strong that all efforts at reclamation were futile. 1. Pray not for them (v. 10). There Is such a thing as sinning unto death, in which case prayer Is useless (v. 10; cf. I John 5:10). 2. Entire families devoted their energies to that which provoked God's anger (vv. 17-19). This was done by young and old, men and women. They did it with the defl- nite purpose to provoke God's anger. The prophet assured them that the outcome of such conduct would be their utter confusion. IV. Judgment Sure to Fall (v.20). Because the people poured out their offerings to idols, the furious anger and wrath of God would be poured out upon men, beasts, trees and the fruit of the ground. How this has been fulfilled the history of the Jews makes clear. V. Obedience to God Better Than Sacrifice (vv. 21-20). The prophet appealed to history to show that God requires heart service rather than the observance of religious forms. Blessings came to Israel through obedience, while cursings followed disobedience, On condition of obedience to his requirements God promised to own .them as his people and to bless them. pecks her ankle "P.
