Robin Dale looked around for
Claude Wayne. He identified
everyone in the room twice, three
times, but not once was there any
one left who might be the old
man's secretary. There was no
question but that Claude Wayne
was missing. If Jardin had been
there Dale would have whispered
the information to him. Sands had
already started to speak so Dale
did not care to interrupt The
absence would be discovered soon
"It will no doubt interest you to
know," the district attorney was
saying, "what, in all probability,
Silas Wayne was about to tell you
this evening. He got far enough
to intimate that he intended to
inform each of you what was to be
his or her legacy. The will he had
prepared has been found. Fortun

may turn out. it ia tnsigned."
Sands paused to take the will
from his pocket, unfold it and
glance through it for a starting
point. Finally he found it.
"To Sarah Boulter he intended
to leave $100,000 to be paid on
the day she bore her first child."
Sands paused and looked toward
Sarah. There was a puzzled, dis
mayed expression on her face,
The effect was heightened by the
sharp, rising inflection of her voice
as her startled words burst forth
"But Uncle Silas knew I could
never bear a child!"
"Of course, the dirty old lubber
knew it." The sonorous voice of
Stephen Boulter almost rumbled in
the small room. "He might just as

"And your husband, Miss

voice. Everyone turned sharply,
even Wilfred Sands. Dale was
watching Miss Sheen. She looked
bewUderingly from him to the
district attorney. Sands nodded
signifying that she was to answer.
"He is not living." After her
answer there was a long moment's

With New Policy
Move In China
By CHARLES P. STEWART
(Central Press Columnist)
WASHINGTON. Wendell Will
kie gets the credt for Uncle Sam's
abandonment of America's extra
territorial rights in China. Pre
sumably he's entitled to it. While
he was in Chungking recently,
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek is
said to have mentioned to him that
the Chinese would consider it a
friendly act. Wendell passed the
hint on to Washintgon and the
state department (for extraterri
toriality, where it exists, is a dip
lomatic, treaty-arranged institu
tion) promptly acquiesced.
It unquestionably pleased those
of the Chinese who are sufficiently
informed to know anything about
the matter, and was a very com
mendable policy to be adopted.
However, most Occidentally-pub-lished
accounts of the transaction
go on an altogether wrong assump
tion.';. The popular theory evidently is
that the strong and more or less
modern western nations forced the
extraterritorial arrangement upon
the - back numbered eastern ones
because the former refused to per
mit their visiting citizens to be
subjected to the east's barbarous
systems of so-called law and jus

all instances, it was the native
