La Bella La Bleur, animal queen, die)
after giving birth to a baby. Doctor Lund,
owner at clrcuo. La Belle'o husband, re-
fuses to recognize child. La Belle In-
trusts baby to Flip, n. clown, who rears
Peg as ctrcua rider. Lkter Doctor Lund's
second write determines Peg shall not
■hare Lund’s millions and sends Hindu
servant to follow circus and dispone of
girl. Doctor Lund sends thugs to get from
Flip letter that proves Peg's parentage.
Mrs. Lund also wants this letter. Many
sicltlsg and hazardous attacks and events
transpire. Doctor Lund's Bon who Is fol-
lowing Peg to Induce her to become his
wife, rescues girl from many perilous
straits. In the preceding episode Peg and
young Lund have escaped from peril by
Jumping Into the water from a boat upon
which they are marooned. They are res-
cued by a passing motorboat and brought
safely to shore. When the circus perfor-
mance Is again under way, Flip, because
of an Injury to his foot, is unable to ap-
pear and Peg dons his make-up and cos-
tume, to do his act. While she is per-
forming In the guise of Flip, the Hindu
and his thugs kidnap her, believing she Is
Flip who has in his possession the cov-
eted letter. The girl Is taken to a de-
serted house from which she escapee, af-
ter young Lund follows and Is the means
of liberating her. Running to the edge of
a high cliff Peg goes over the edge to es-
cape the pursuing Hindu. Young Lund
takes up her trail and discovers the girl
helpless among the rocks far below. Low-
ering a rope young Lund descends to
Peg's relief and, as the episode closes the
Hindu Is In the act of severing the
strands with hls knife.
In the moment of Peg and young
Lund’s greatest peril, events of tre-
mendous Importance happened with al-
most lightning speed. The rope on
which Lund had let himself down the
fnce of the cliff formed the only means
whereby he had any hope of rescuing
Peg. The girl lay at hls feet, stunned
by her fall from the top of the preci-
By grasping the branches of small
shrubs that grew from crevices In the
cliff, Peg had managed to Impede the
directness of her fall. She clutched
with desperation at every twig or
branch that her hands could reach. But
her life was actually saved by a mass
of rock that projected from the face
of the cliff.
This formation provided a landing
place for Peg as she slid, tumbled and
Lolled down the abrupt Incline.
Here Lund found ber, when be had
let himself down hand over hand by
the strong rope. But he had barely
landed on the projecting rock, when,
as he Instinctively looked upward, he
saw the leering face of Chockro, black
with hate and malice, as the Hindu
gloated In hls momentary triumph.
But before the vlllian had opportu-
nity to draw hls knife across the
strands of rope which secured a
means of escape for young Lund and
Peg from their perilous position, a
shout from the fast approaching circus
people caused the villain to halt in hls
purpose. In the second that elapsed
while Chockro and hls man looked np
to observe the cause of the commotion,
the lives of the circus girl and her
sweetheart were saved.
‘‘Come on, quick 1" said Chockro to
hls henchman. “We must run for our
lives or they will throw us over the
i The circus people lost no time In de-
livering Peg and young Lund from
their perilous plight.
Lund securely fastened the free end
of the rope around Peg's body and
with a strong pull by eager hands she
was soon landed safely. Then the rope
was again thrown ovetf the edge of the
cliff and Lund was, In like manner,
hauled to the top of the precipice.
Chockro and hls man, when far Into
the woods and safe from pursuR,
slowed down and proceeded leisurely
on their way to Mrs. Lund’s. Because

In the room above where the plot-

ing. His millions, the stake for which
Mrs. Lund was playing her desperate
game, might soon be ready for legal
distribution. Mrs. Lund realized that
Peg must be disposed of without de-
When Chockro had finished speak-
ing Mrs. Lund was ready with anoth-
"They need more clowns with the
show,” said Mrs. Lund to the Hindu
with abrupt directness. "Do you know
any clown acts that you can put on?"
"How would the double-box work?"
was the Hindu’s answer. "My country-
men know more tricks than you Chris-
tians ever thought of.” Chockro’s re-
sponse made the woman smile and
when he had explained the nature of
the double-box trick, Mrs. Lund was
"The very thing—exactly what I
That night Chockro called on the
manager of the show, after the per-
formance was well started, and ap-
plied for a position.
"If you’ve got any new stuff
fetch It along and Til give It a -ook
over," said the manager.
Arranging the details was then easy,
Chockro promised to give a trial show
the next afternoon.
The Hindu was busy thnt night pre-
paring two big boxes to be used In
the act he proposed to do. The car-
penter was given careful directions as
to how they were to be built, and the
Hindu stood by to see that the Job
was properly done.
Early tbe next forenoon the Hindu
arrived at the carpenter shop with a
wagon to deliver the boxes to the show
grounds. One of hls henchman was
given Instructions as to where the
boxes were to be delivered. With an-
other one of hls pals, Chockro crawled
Into the larger of the two boxes and,
In due time, was deposited on the
ground In the tent where material
used in the ring was stored between
The cunning of the Hlndn worked to
his advantage very quickly, for the
boxes bad not been unloaded many
minutes when Peg, young Lund and
Flip entered the property tent and,
as luck would have It, seated them-
selves on the box that contained
Chockro and hls man.
"Daddy dear, why don't you clean
np this mystery?" said the circus rider
to the old clown.
"Because I cannot do it now, little
girl," said Flip. “There la too much
at stake, but from tbe Dews that comes
to me from headquarters, there will
soon be a change In conditions, and
then you will know all about It.”
“Well, It’s the biggest mystery I ever
heard of," replied the girl with an Im-
petuous toss of her pretty head.
“This letter Is the keynote to the
whole situation," said Flip, tB he drew
from hls pocket the precious document
La Belle Le Sleur had given to him to
keep and guard. "We must protect
this at all hazards."
Chockro and hls man eagerly lis-
tened to the conversation, from their
position of vantage within the box,
They next heard Peg say:
*TU tell you what we’ll do. Let’s
write a duplicate letter for you to keep
In your trunk, daddy, while I keep the
original letter on my person. Then
If these men rob your trunk they will
Peg laughed as she Imagined the
trick In full operation. And the two
men mirthfully Joined with her, as
the party left their perch upon the
box. Their laughter, dying away
when they left the tent, was a signal
to Chockro and hls man that the fruit-
ful vigil was at an end.
“Now we’ve got something real to
report to the boss,” said the Hlndn to
hls pal. “Come on and fix np for the
motor track, and then we will go to
Mrs. Lund and tell her what we have
The Hindu and hls pal soon ap-
peared at Mrs. Land's home. They
were admitted by the maid, and Im-
mediately began an animated conver-
sation with their “boss." So interest-
ed were they In the subject under dis-
cussion that young Lund was unob-
served by them when he suddenly ap-
peared at the parlor door,
Seeing the two men In conversation
with hls mother, young Lund drew
back and called the maid to duly an-
nounce hls arrival. When Mrs. Land
was told that her no was about »
enter the room, she hustled tbe Hlndn
and hls pal through the portieres that
separated the parlor from the music
room, making haste to tightly draw
Greeting hls mother affectionately,
the young man's first question was:
“How Is father today? Is he show-
ing any signs of Improvement?”
'Tm afraid not,” said Mrs. Lund.
“He la growing weaker and complains
more of hls heart."
“Run up and tell him I am here,"
said the young man. “And say I shall
come to him In a few moments.”
Young Lund watched hls mother as
she left the room. He was mystified
because of her strange conduct, and
gradually, the suspicion of her un-
worthiness was dawning upon him.
For a moment he stood In deep
thought, clearly troubled and per-
plexed. Suddenly arousing himself,
he entered the music room and faced
the two men.
"I told you' once before, you greaser,
to stay away from here. Now get out,
and do It quickly." As he stepped
aside to give the two men a chance to
pass through tbe door, young Lund
could not resist the Impulse to make
a pass at the Hindu. Hls fist swung
against the buck of Chockro’s head
and gave Impetus to hls movement.
Lund made no move to follow the
thugs, but. Instead, closed the por-
tieres carefully and sat dow-n In a
chair to quietly await developments.
He heard his mother enter the next
room and talk to her henchmen In
tones so low that only a mumbling
sound reached hls ears.
“Go back to the circus and get the
girl away,” said Mrs. Lund to Chock-
ro In a voice little above a whisper.
"The double box will do It, and she
will have the letter. Get my son Into
the storeroom and I will detain him
here. And don't make any more noise
about It than you can help. My hus-
band Is very 111.”
The maid, hidden behind an Im-
mense leather chair that stood In the
corner of the room, overheard the
Determined to see tbe plan work
out, and to help young Lund in any
way she could, the girl remained hid-
den after Mrs. Lund again left Chock-
ro and hls man alone In the parlor.
The thugs Immediately turned their
attention to young Lund, making a
rush through the curtains, Into the
Lund was ready for them, and met
blow for blow, as they both set upon
him In an effort to knock him out.
The struggle was terrific, but brief,
Lund working against odds fast and
Tbe two men again proved them-
warded In finding a vent Into which a
stovepipe might be Inserted, covered
with wall paper and entering the chim-
ney a few feet from the floor.
Removing this cover, the girl called
Into the chimney. She waited for an
answer, and then shouted again and
again. Finally she dropped a book
through the vent hole, and It landed in
the fireplace of the room where Lund
was confined. Again she called, and
this time an answer came from below.
“Your mother 1b watching by the
door," said the maid. "She Is guard-
ing It closely, but if I have a chance,
I’ll get the key and drop It down to
you. Keep close watch; I’ll work as
fast as I can."
It took time for the girl to accom-
plish her purpose. Finally, after re-
peated attempts, the muld discovered
a moment Mrs. Lund had left the door
She made a hurried dash to reach
the door, but' Mrs. Lund appeared
from a room across the hull, and the
two women arrived simultaneously at
tbe door leading to Lund’s temporary
prison. The maid stopped directly In
front of the key, but had no time to
either turn It or wrench It from the
"What are you doing here?" Mrs.
Lund demanded angrily.
"Oh, madam, I'm so faint 1" the girl
She put her right arm over her face
with a gesture of bewilderment, leaned
against the jamb of the door and,
reaching behind her, slipped the key
from the lock with her left hand.
“Well, If you are faint or sick, your
room Is the place for you, not spying
around here," was Mrs. Lund's retort.
The girl, having accomplished her pur-
pose, fled upstairs with all speed and
dropped the key down the chimney.
"Quick 1 Quick 1” she fairly
screamed. "Your mother's automobile
Is outside. Run for It 1”
When the key struck the bricks of
the fireplace, Lund was eagerly wait-
ing for it. Turning the key In the
the lock, he felt the door being held
Hls strong shoulder ngnlnst the pan-
els quickly overcame the obstruction,
nnd when Lund forced hls way
through the door he was dumbfounded
to find that his mother had been keep-
ing him a prisoner.
Without saying a word he fled up-
stairs, out of the front door, and after
starting the engine, vaulted Into hls
mother's machine. He darted away In
the direction of the circus grounds.
The entire afternoon had been con-
sumed by the maid In ber efforts to
free him. Twilight had passed, and
It was well Into the evening before
young Lund stopped bis machine In
tbe supposed clowns raised the box
to their shoulders and ran with It to
the exit The onlookers imagined the
sudden exit was a part of the trick.
But when Flip appealed to hls fellow
performers for aid, a crowd of show
folks followed him In the direction the
“clowns” had fled with their harden.
The showmen were Just In time to
see the packing case lifted to the plat-
form of a big motor truck that was
standing at the side of the road. The
engine was quickly started aud the
truck moved rapidly away.
Flip, recovered from the Injuries to
hls foot, ran as fast aa be could, and
was the last one to give up the chase,
ne ran behind the truck after It had
turned a corner of the street, followed
It a block farther and wub then unable
to proceed farther.
Dejectedly the old clown walked
back toward the show grounds.
Just as he was turning from the
street, young Lund dnshed up In hls
automobile. When the young muu
Jumped to the ground he burely es-
caped colltdtug with Flip.
“Oh, my boy, I'm glad you are here,"
cried the old clown hysterically.
"They have run off with Peg!"
•Tell me quick—which way?"
Young Lund took Flip by the shoul-
ders and shook him, In eagerness to
get the Information.
“Down thut next street. They have
her In a box, on an auto truck”—but
Lund waited for no details.
“Don’t worry. I'll get her," and run-
ning at top speed, he had turned the
corner Flip had Indicated almost be-
fore the old clown realized what bad
Tbe motor truck bearing Chockro
and hls gang, with Peg safely confined
In the sfrong* wooden box, aped
straight for the edge of town.
Going at Its best speed, the truck
consumed the better part of an hour
before It baited beside a clump of
trees that sheltered a low, rambling
shack, occupied by a swarthy Mexican
who had that day rented It to the
“There’s a road here somewhere,"
said Chockro, as he Jumped down from
the motor truck and began a search.
“Here’s the gate; drive In here,” he
soon called out. The truck stopped a
little way Inside the gate. The cover
of the box was raised and the burly
thugs lifted the screaming girl to the
"Scream If you like, you vixen," said
the Hindu derisively. "Nobody can
hear you.; We’ve got you now where
you can’t be rescued."
With main force Peg was carried or
dragged along the roadway and Into
the house. The driver of the motor
truck was ordered to turn out of the
yard and run Immediately back to
Running with hls own lights out,
the truck man was compelled to make
a quick turn to avoid collision with
the speeding car as it flashed past
him. Young Lund missed the volley
of verbal abuse, but mentally thanked
the truck man for proving that the
trail of Peg was straight ahead.
There were two rooms In the Mex-
ican’s shack, and Into the living room
Peg was carried by Chockro'a motley
Peg determined to fight her way out
of her desperate position. While
Chockro was outside, placing hls men
as guards to all approaches to the
house, the girl made a dash for the
open door. The one man who stood
guard over her attempted to restrain
Had this man been Peg's only bar-
rier to freedom, she would have soon
made good her escape. But Just at
the moment she had knocked down the
desperado with a well-aimed chair
she had swung high above her head,
Chockro, attracted by the scuffle, put
In an appearance.
The Hindu called tot help, and
when hls cries failed to bring prompt
response, he fired hls revolver Into the
celling. The report brought two of
hls henchmen on the run, and when
there was enough strong men present
to subdue the girl aha was thrown
into the adjoining room.
Peg found herself in a bedroom, dim-
ly lighted by a greasy lamp. She ob-
served thnt there wns but one window
In the wall, and when she went there
to look out, Chockro'a hateful eyes
leered In at her.
"I warn you not to try and make
a get-away," said the Hlndn. “There
Is a man outside with orders to shoot
the first person to show their head at
this window. So, If you want to die,
Just try to escape."
When Chockro had left the window,
Peg sat down upon the bed to con-
template her position. When she later
tried the door, and found It securely
locked, voices from the adjoining room
told her thnt there could be no means
of escape In that direction.
The window was her only hope, and
to teat the truth of what Chockro had
said, the girl put an old hat she found
In the room over the end of a bottle
and held the combination at arm's
length above ber head. When she
showed the hat at the window, there
was an Immediate report from a re-
volver, and Instantly the bottle was
shattered by tbe well-aimed shot
Listening at the door, Peg heard a
part of the discussion between Chock-
ro and hls mem Chockro was, evi-
dently, standing very near the door,
for she clearly heard him say, as If
responding to a question:
"We’ve got to keep her here until
the boss comes. Shell be on hand
some time during the night, and then
we will aettls accounts with her.”
There was a farther mumble of
words, and then the gin neard the
“She’s got the letter on her person.

her. and than tarn IBs girl ever to me

Peq Wae Soon Landed Safely.
Selves no match for Lnnd on even
terms, but when Chockro found an op-
portunity to draw hls revolver, a blow
from the butt of the "gun" upon
Lund’s head soon settled the battle.
Carrying him between them, the two
thugs transferred Lund to the store-
room to which Mrs. Lund had previ-
ously directed them.
Depositing their burden on the floor,
the two crooks met the fiendish wom-
an at the door aa they were leaving
the storeroom. Mrs. Lund turned the
key in tba lock and said to Chockro:
“Hurry on t< the show, I will
watch him closely, and see that be
does not get away.” And the lnhnman
creature stood with her back against
tbe door as the men hurriedly left the
Mrs. Lund stood for several mo-
menta leaning against the door. She
listened for some sound from within
the room, until, evidently convinced
that her prisoner was thoroughly sub-
dued, she made her way upstairs.
From her hiding place behind the
chair everything that had transpired
was seen by the maid. She saw Chock-
ro and hls man carry young Lund
downstairs, and a moment later heard
them pass from th« house by way of
the front door.
The girl hurried downstairs, with
the purpose of trying to communicate
In some way with yonng Lend, but she
discovered Mrs. Land had returned to
the door and was Intently listening.
Unobserved, the maid retreated, and
tried another method of reaching the

Chockro’s double-box clown act was
Indeed one of the most amazing per-
formances ever given with a circus.
Six of Chockro’s burly henchmen
constituted hls troupe of "clowns."
When they entered the ring, they were
a grotesque lot variously made up to
represent policemen and firemen.
The Hindu manipulated matters so
that hls outfit worked In the ring, not
far from an exit to the back of the
lot In their performance the "clowns"
would put a man In one box, shut
down the cover and, apparently, trans-
fer the same man to the other box,
without being caught at the trick. It
was mystifying, and the Hindu's na-
tive cleverness brought to bear a de-
gree of expertness to make the trick
work smoothly and well.
Again the man was made to appear
and disappear, from one box to the
other. At a moment when the audience
was convulsed with the drolleries of
the "clowns," one of Chockro’s gang
entered the ring, bearing In hls arms
a woman, her head covered with a
cloth and her arms and legs flying
around as If resisting her captor.
The audience enjoyed the incident
as great fun, and the circus perform-
ers also looked on in keen professional
Interest Old Flip was one In the
crowd who looked with suspicion on
the whole proceedings, and when the
woman was rushed into the ring the
old clown raised a cry of alarm.
He ran toward ths bunch of
“clowns" whea the woman was being
bnrriedly forced Into the wooden case,
and as the cloth fell from the girl's
heed. Flip caught a glimpse of Peg’s
face before the cover to the box was

to finish her off.” Peg heard ne more
conversation, for at that Instant a sud-
den commotion in the next room put
on end to talk.
Lund, driving madly along the conn-
try road, with every sense alert to
guide him, had reached the vicinity of
the Mexican shack, when he heard the
sound of shots. He stopped hls ma-
chine and listened. Another shot soon
decided hls action.
Driving hls car to the side of ths
road, he jumped ont Arming himself
with a heavy wrench from the tool

box, he proceeded on foot until he
came to the gate leading to the Mexi-
can's yard. He then cautiously turned
In. Lund crept among the hedges un-
til he came to Chockro'a first sentinel.
Sneaking noiselessly behind the
“clown" Lund felled him with one
blow of the heavy wrench.
Going on farther, and coming to a
second sentinel, Lund attacked that
"clown” In n similar manner, but halt-
ed then to disrobe the senseless crook
and changed clothes with him. Thus
disguised as a policeman, Lund pulled
the helmet low over hls eyes and
walked straight to the Mexican’s shack
and entered the living room.
“What are you doing here," said
Chockro to his supposed pal. "I
thought I told you to watch outside."
"Well, I thought I’d come In—and
take a fall out of you,” said Lund, and
suiting the action to the word, the
young athlete started at once to mix
There were three men to one In the
lively battle that ensued. Lund made
use of hls fists, and feet, pummeled hls
opponents with everything he coaid
lay hands on, kept his men busy,
scrambling to their feet following the
results of bis well-placed blows.
Peg’s curiosity got the better of her
before the battle had waged more thnn
a few seconds, and opening the door
she started to enter the living room.
Lund saw her and yelled for her to
In the Instant that Lund’s attention
was attracted by Peg’s unexpected ap-
pearance, one of Chockro'a men found
an advantage. Frank crumpled under
a fierce blow behind bis ear.
•Throw him In with the girl,” yelled
Chockro, And In a twinkling Lund
waa flung Into the bedroom and the
door was slammed shut
“Stay there, or else climb through
the window,” the Hlndn Bhouted.
Peg dragged Lund to the bed and
doused water In hls face. The treat-
men speedily revived him, but he waa

had so quickly put him out of the
