Story by John Fleming Wilson
Extraordinary preparations were
made and extensive plans executed for
the filming of the twelfth episode of
the Universal Special Feature Serial
The Musier Key". Each week tlii3
ncnsational serial increases in Jraina
tic st relight. Starting out willi a
thrilling first episode, the serial has
now attained the momentum of an
avalanche. Sensation follows sensa
tion in stupendous crashes, which pile
up one after another until the specta
tor becomes feverish trying to follow
them. The serial has now attained a
crescendo of nerve racking excitement
which other so-called "serials" haw
tried to imitate with dire results.
In the production of the latest episode
number twelve, of this surpassingly
wonderful feature the Universal has
constructed a little Bombay on the
Pacific Coast, near Los Angeles
Sampans take the entire company, in
cluding Robert Leonard, Ella Hall,
Harry Carter, Alan Forrest, Jean
Hathaway, Alfred Hickman and the
hundreds of supernumeraries to shore
where they land at a reproduction of
Bombay's "Jetty" or wharf.
On the shore Van Wijk Hotel in
Bombay, India, has been reproduced
and in the back ground are Chineic
and Hindu theatres, a street in the na
tive quarter of Bombay, monolithic
pagodas, domed temples with their
needle-like minarets and the wond"r
creation of the whole city a reproduc
tion of the great Indian temple, :ne
Taj Mahal with its marblo fountains
and dozens of domed spires. A sec
tion of this wonderful native temple
is reproduced on this pago. Hinr.u
natives, brought down from the rail
road camps in British Columbia, aro
costumed in native garb and take part
in the play. Robert Leonard in white
mufti strolls through the arcades iff
the wonderful structure and enters the
altar room of the temple where ho at
1 temps to steal the idol in which is hid
den the secret of the Master Key mine
Temple bells tinkle about him as
ho sweeps aside she rare tapestries
and kneels, apparently in adoration
upon a prayer carpet. Through the
doors of the temple huge elephants
with howduhs on their backs clumsily
hump nlonir. And then tho fiirht oc
cusr. Natives- armed witli jeweled
scimetars attack the young American
who is finally rescued by British sold
iers and hurried, badly wounded, from
tho scene. But here is the story of
the latest episode of this most thril
ling of nil serials.
It will bo remembered that in the
eleventh episode of tho "Master Key"
that a Hindu peddler, visiting n pawn
shop to .sell his wares consisting of a
few Oriental rugs, sees the idol, recog
nizes it ns ono which was stolen from
him in India yenrs before nnd immed
iately purchases it. The idol has a
long history, of which Dore and Ruth
know nothing. Upon tracing it to
the pawnshop, however, they learn
that the Hindu forestalled them, nnd
that the idol is gone. Wilkerson, also
searching for the valueable little idol,
which ho has permitted to ship
through his fingers, trails Ruth and
Dore. Tho pawnbroker tells Ruth
nnd Doro of tho strange Hindu to
whom he sold it. Dore decides that
the oriental is likely to return to India
with it and through the captain of the
steamer he traces the Hindu to a ship
bound for tha Orient. Everett again
assists them with money for the voy
age, Sir Donald Favershnm, learning
that Ruth ih in Los Angeles, call on
her to renew their friendship, and
learning that they are going lo the
Orient, ho offers his sotvhvH, he hav
ing been previously station in India
ux a British officer.

William Tripp's
Old Mother
Copyright, 1913. by Associated Lit
erary Press.
William was wicked.
When 1 pick out one man from n
mining camp made up of 300 run
nways, debt Jumpers, cutthroats, gam
blers, horse thieves and murderers and
call him wicked I mean for the reader
to Infer that he was right up nud
down bad.
Which was exactly the case with
William Tripp.
Wicked! Well, be was that!
Such a swearer as William was! He
would begin as soon as his eyes were
open In the morning nnd keep up n
steady fire until 10 o'clock at night
nd ho was a cheat nnd n liar.
ou wonder that we didn't run him
out or hang him.
Well, somehow we nlways Intended
to, but always put It off to a moro
convenient date. The success of
bouncing n mini depends n good dual
on who the man Is. On our first gen
tle hint to William Tripp that aniens
he was packed up and out of camp In
side of thirty minutes his anatomy
would be riddled with bullets he pro
duced n couple of revolvers, backed up
against the Red Eye saloon nnd calm
ly observed that he was aching for a
little excitement. I think his actions
at that particular time bad something
to do with our giving him the rope
and seeking to get nlong with his ec
centric traits of character.
"I move." said Elder Beacon one
night when we were talking about
William's bod ways, "that the com
mittee get the drop on him and then
run him Into the bills."
Just bo, but who were the commit
tee? That was another point we could
never satisfactorily determine, nnd that
was another reason why William con
tinued to abide with us.
Shoot? Well, you never saw such an
eye and such nerve. Just as far as he
could see the bowl of a pipe in a man's
mouth he could smash it with a bullet.
Almost every bat in camp bnd an air
hole made by one of his bullets, nnd,
though 1 was prejudiced against Wil
liam, I had to admit thnt he respected
men's heads In shooting at their lints.
But there came a halt lu William
Tripp's mad coreer, and It happened
In a queer way. A lire in Ills tent one
night burned up a lot of his traps, and
he had to make a ride of thirty miles
on Colonel Cooper's old mare to replace
tnem with new. The morning ho rode,
out of camp was the last time we saw
hint, but we heard from n do7.en dif
ferent ones Just what happened. About
twelve miles from our camp was the
Overland trail, and Just where our own
trail struck in was a pretty little val
ley with plenty of water and wood. It
was a favorite" camping spot with Im
migrants, nnd the dny William Tripp
reached It ho found half a dozen wag
ons nnd as many families halted for
a breathing spell.
The deviltry In William's nature bub
bled over when he struck that valley
nnd beheld such n scene of peace.
Children were playing nround, women
were washing and mending, nnd the
brawny men were repairing wagons
and harness and whistling over their
work. William drew rein and gazed
upon the scene for a few minutes.
Then he out with Ills revolver. Seated 1
before one of the llres wjih an old wo I
man with her knitting In hand and n
pipe In her mouth. It was n long shot,
tint the evil one urged William to try
It. and try he did.
What happened?
Something oven worse than murder
The bullet went straight for tho old
woman's bead and crashed Into her
brain, Then something awful follow
ed. She rose to her feet, whirled
around to face the shooter, nnd true
ns you live she seemed to look at him
for thirty seconds beforo sho tottered
forward and sjirleked out:
"William! Oh. my son Wllllnm!"
Then she pitched forward on tho
grass and was dead In n second, and
tho red blood oozed out and made a
terrible stain on the green grass.
And Wllllam-what did he do? He
was like ono turned to stone. Tho old
woman's words plainly reached his
ears, and he must linvo recognized her
face. In the awful moment In which
ho sat gazing nt the corpse on the
grass It mimt have flashed across him
thnt Ids poor mother had made that
long Journey with neighbors for no
other purpose than to hunt him up ho
the boy who had left her yeors ago
and hail been the subject of her night
ly prayers ever since. Wicked as ho
was he must have fell her devotion
and sncrlllces.
And then?
He sat there In his saddle, his eyes
fastened on his mother's corpse, nnd
the revolver still In Ids hand. The sit
uation had pet rilled blm. While ho wit
thus one of the Immigrants, who, bi
llevlng that tho camp was to be at
tacked by a force, leveh-d his rlllo
over the wheel of tho wngon and sent
ii bullet plowing through William'
