With a swift movement of her fingers she flashed on the hall light. Her gaze searched the brown, shiny face of the little chap. She read there an affidavit of the truth of his mother's tale. It was impossible to see him and not recognize Colby Macdonald reincarnated. "What is your name?" asked Sheba suddenly. The youngster hung hack shyly anions the folds of the Indian woman's skirt. "Colmac," he said at last softly. "Come !" Sheba flung open the door of the living room and ushered them in. Macdonald. pacing restlessly up and down the room during her abs nee, pulled up in his stride, ne stood frowning at the native woman, then his eyes passed to Elliot and fastened upon him. The face of the Scotsman was grim as that of a hanging judge. Gordon started to explain, then stopped with a shrug. What was the use? The man would never believe him in the world. "I'll remember this." the Alaskan promised his rival. There was a cold glitter in his eyes, a sudden flare of the devil that was "It's true, then," broke in Sheba. "you're a squaw man. you belong to this woman." "Nothing of the kind.- That's been ended. for years." "Ended?" Sheba drew Colmac forward by the wrist. "Do you deny that this Is your boy?" ' The big Alaskan brushed this aside as of no moment. "I dare say he is. Anyhow, I'm paying for his keep. What of it? That's all finished and done with." "How can it be done with when when she's the mother of your child, your wife before God?" Standing there straight as an aspen, the beautiful bosom rising and falling quickly while the storm waves beat through her blood, Sheba O'Neill had never made more appeal to the strong, lawless man who desired her for his wife. Macdon"You don't understand." ald's big fists were clenched so savagely that the knuckles stood out white from the brown tan of the flesh. "This is a man's country. It's new close to nature. What he wants ho takes if he's strong enough. I'm I" "You wanted her and you took her. Now you want me and I suppose you'll take me too." ner scornful words had the sting of a whiplash. "I've lived as all men live who have red blood in them. This woman was an incident. I've been aboveboard. She can't say I ever promised more than I've given. I've kept her and the boy. It's been no secret. If you had asked, I would have told you the whole story." "Does that excuse you?" "I don't need any excuse. I'm a man. That's excuse enough. The one big fact you want to set your teeth into now is that I love you, that there Isn't another woman on God's earth for me, and that there never will be again." Her eyes flashed battle. "The one big fact I'm facing is that you have insulted me that you insult me again when you mention love with that woman and boy in the room. You belong to them go to them and leave me alone. I hate the sight of you. Why don't you go all of you and leave me in peace?" It was a cry of bruised pride and wounded ive. Elliot touched the Indian woman on the shoulder. Meteetse turned stolidly and walked out of the room, still leading Colmac by the hand. The young man followed. Macdonald closed the door behind them, then strode frowning up and down the room. The fear was growing on him that for all his great driv ing power he could not shake this slim girl from the view to which she clung. His relation with Meteetse had been natural enough. He believed that he had acted very honorably to. her. Many a man would have left her In the lurch to take care of the youngster by herself. But he had acknowledged his obligation. He was paying his debt scrupulously, and because of It the story had risen to confront him. He felt that It was an blow of fate. He knew that he must justify himself before Sheba or lose her. As ho blood-chilling. , Ktaua'iu tne ausTi. sd tall and rigid, he knew her heart was steel to him. Her finely chiseled face had the look of race. Never had the spell of her been more upon hi.n. He crushed back a desire to take her supple young body into his arms and kiss her till the scarlet ran into her cheeks like splashes of wine. "Yon haven't the proper slant on this, Sheba. Alaska is the last fronplace. tier. It's the dropplng-of- f You're north of "Am I north of the Ten Commandments?" she demanded with the inexorable judgment of youth. "Did you leave the moral code at home when you came in over the ice?" He smiled a little. "Morality Is the average conduct of the average man at a given time and place. It is based on custom and expediency. The rules made for Drogheda won't .fit Dawson or Nome. Meteetse docs not hold herself disgraced but honored. She counts her boy far superior to the other youngsters of the village, and he is so considered by the tribe. I am rold she lords it over her sisters." A faint flush of anger crept into her cheeks. "Your view of morality puts ns on a level with the animals. I will not discuss the subject, if you please." "We must discuss it. I must got you to see that Meteetse and what she stood for in my life have nothing to do with us. They belong to my past. She doesn't exist for either of us isn't in any way a part of my present or future." "She exists for me," answered Sheba listlessly. She felt suddenly old and weary. "But I can't talk about it. Please so. I want to be alone." Again Macdonald paced restlessly down the room and back. The man was one among ten thousand, dominant, virile, every ounce of him strong as tested steel. But he felt as if all his energy were caged. "Why don't you go?" the girl pleaded. "It's no use to stay." He stopped in front of her. "I'm going to marry you, Sheba.

Day after day I ride aloft on the shadowy horses in the Valley of Cypresses and as I ride I draw forth the life blood of every enemy's son that dares to dispute my path. It is meet and right that I should cry aloud in my pride, for am I not the flaming messenger of the Lord Almighty? Germany is so far above and beyond all the other nations that all the rest of the earth, be they who they may, should feel themselves well done by when they are allowed to fight with the dogs for the crumbs that fall from her table. When Germany the divine is happy, then the rest of the world basks in smiles; but when Germany suffers, God in person is rent with anguish, and, 'wrathful and avenging, he turns all the waters into rivers of blood. i J HYMN OF THE GERMAN SWORD It Is no duty of mine to be either just or compassionate; it suffices that II am sanctified by my exalted mission, and that I blind the eyes of my with such streams of tears as shall make the proudest of them cringe ene-jmi- Steel Fence Posts DEHLEP BROS.

You can get insured against midst of this apparent anarchy, this lack of government, there is always and this is an astonishing fact that has impressed the members of the American commission and all the other foreign statesmen who have come to Russia since the revolution a checking influence of what we in the United States call 'common sense.' "There is always somebody in a meeting who offsets wild speeches; somebody in a crowd who gives a matter a second thought and offsets and checks the man who wishes to act without thinking. There is an unexpected hardheadedness about even the mobs. The country districts of Russia, thousands of its little towns, villages am! oities, were being governed, three months after the revolution, by public opinion and common sense alone and astonishingly well governed. "But all this makes a weird world, full of weird happenings. "Anything can happen in Russia these days. But the point I am making is that in Russia the influence of common sense has always made itself felt from the first day of the revolution, and the council of workmen and soldiers was a concrete embodiment of this characteristic at a time in Russia when peaceful anarchy ruled; when one opinion or theory was as good as another and when there was a machine gun behind every theory."

The only black spot about it is the tip of its nose, writes Edwin Tarrlsse. Sailors who first landed on the unexplored Arctic shores stated that the bears used to take them for seals and begin to stalk them at a considerable distance, lying down flat on their bellies and wriggling along in that position until they came to an ice hummock, when they would get up, peer over to see whether the "seals" were alarmed, and wriggle on again. The sailors said that they could alter how glossy it becomes.

Every one thinks that he could manage things to perfection, but if he had to confront the new set of conditions he would likely change his mind, asserts the Ohio State Journal. Here is an institution that is ordered to cut off light, heat and service, and yet we wonder because we are discommoded. There are new conditions confronting us whichever way we turn, and they all grow out of this horrid old war. They cannot be helped, though sometimes we think the situation might be improved, but we should not think the improvement should come all at once. When we get used to our inconveniences they will seem easier, partly because they will be made lighter and partly because we will become more philosophical.

Judge Carter adjourn ed court on Saturday after a very busy tho short term. Very few civil cases were tried, but the Commonwealth docket was pretty well finished up after consuming most of the entire week. During the week a bill was drawn and sent to Senator Richardson and Representative Iluddleston, which will no doubt be enacted into law during this session of the Legislature which provides for dispensing with the January term of Court for Adair County, and fixes the times for holding court here in March, July, aud November. Recommendation for the passage of the Bill was signed and endorsed by the Judge, the Commonwealths Attorney and every lawyer of the bar. The times proposed for hold iug court here are very much more suitable to all parties concerned, and it is very much hoped for that the measure will be immediy.tely passed. Both Judge Carter aud Commonwealths Attorney Huddleston returned to their homes respectively at Tompkmsville and Burkesville on Saturday. Ray Page, W. II. Samuel, Alfred Mur- rell, W. II. Flowers, U.
