"No. Give the girl time. Catch her impulse on the rebound. She'll be bored to death at Katma and she will come back docile." Her scarlet lips, the long, unbroken lines of the sinuous, opulent body, the challenge of the smoldering eyes, the warmth of her laughter, all invited him to forget the charms of other women. The faint feminine perfume of her was wafted to his brain. He felt a besieging of the blood. Stepping behind the chair in which she sat, he tilted back the head of lustrous bronze, and very deliberately kissed her on the lips. For a moment she gave herself to his embrace, then pushed him back, rose, and walked across the room to a little table. With fingers that trembled slightly she lit a cigarette. Sheathed eighteen ninety-nineminer shouted up. the little Elliott appeared at .the window. "Well, Til be. hanged! What are you doing here, "Onct I knew a man lived to be a grandpa minding his own business," grinned the little man. "Come down and I'll tell you all about it, boy." In half a minute Gordon was beside him. After the first greetings the young man nodded toward the dog team. "How did you persuade Tim Ryan to lend you his huskies?" "Why. don't you take a paper and keep up with the news, son? These huskies don't belong to Tim." "Meaning that Mr. Gideon Holt Is the owner?"

It had run second for two years in the Alaska sweepstakes to Macdonald's great Siberian wolfhounds. The leader, Butch, was the hero of a dozen races and a hundred savage fights. "What In Halifax do you want with the team?" asked Elliot, surprised. "The whole outfit must have cost a small fortune." "Some dust," admitted Gideon proudly. He winked mysteriously at Gor don. "I got a use for this team, If anyone was to ask you." "Haven't taken the government mail contract, have you?" "Not so you could notice it. I'll tell you what I want with this team, as the old sayin is." Holt lowered his voice and narrowed slyly his little beadllke eyes. "I'm going to put a crimp in Colby Macdonald.

Jos. R. Underwood, deed., of Bowling Green, for Collin's History.) The country on the south side of Green river was a wilderness with but few scattered settlers. The Harpes rode good horses, were well dressed in broadcloth coats and armed with rifles and hostlers and pistols. The wild, uninhabited conditions of the country was their apology for such equipment. They stopped for dinner at the house of a settler named James Hopkins. While resting themselves, and enjoying the .hospitality of Mr. Harpes passed Hopkins, the themselves as Methodist preachers, and one of them said a long grace at the dinner table. After dinner the Harpes resumed their journey toward the Ohio river. The first cabin passed was that of Moses Stigall, then occupied by his wife and child, he then being from home. It is certain that on joining their wives, they lost no time in packing up and leaving. They camped for the night a few miles from the residence of Stigall, who owed one of the Stigall met women a dollar. the party, and told the woman to call on his wife, and tell her to pay the dollar. He said his wife did not know where he kept his money and accordingly sent proper directions. One or all of the wives of the Harpes went to the house of Stigall and told his wife what her husband had said. She found his purse which contained about $40 in silver out of which she paid the woman the dollar due her. The wives told the Harpes about the money, and this led to the murders which followed. During the following night, the Harpes left the camp and went to the house of Stigall, got the money, murdered his wife and child, and Mr. Love who was with them, and then set the News of these murders spread through the scattered population with rapidity, a company was formed, and tne pursuit of these murderers commenced. When overtaken they were about to kill another man, Smith. Little Harpe ran into the bushes and escaped. Big Harpe, who was pursued was on horse-bacfor several miles and wounded, and finally knocked from hi3 horse. When Stigall, the husband of the murdered woman, came up to where he was lying, he placed the muzzle of his gun against his body, and shot him through the heart. Thus perished this brutal monster. The historian says, "His head was cut off, a tall young tree growing by the side of the trail or road was selected, and trimmed of its latereal branches to the top, and then made sharp. On this point the head was fastened. The skull and jaw bone remained there for many years after all else had been decomposed and mingled with the dust.

We read in Collin's History that "Little Harpe when next heard from was on the road which runs from New Orlean?, through the Choctaw grant, to Tennessee. Whilst there he became acquainted with and joined the band of outlaws led by the celebrated Mason. Mason and Harpe committed many depredations upon the above mention ed road, and upon the Mississippi They river. continued this course of life for many years, and accumulated great wealth. Finally Mason and his band be came so notorious and trouble some, that the governor of Mississippi territory offered a reward of five hundred dollars for his head. Harpe immediately determined to secure the reward for himself. Finding Mason one day in a thick cane brake, count-inhis money, he shot him, cut off his head, and carried it to the village of Washington, then the capital of Mississippi. A man who had been robbed about a year before by Mason's band, recognized Harpe, and upon his evidence he was arrested, arraigned, tried, condemned and executed. Thus perished the "Little Harpe," who, lacking the only good quality his brother possessed, courage, was if anything more brutal and ferocious.' g ice centers about home solidarity getting lonely women back to Htb with their own people, watching arer the interests of an expectant mother,, reuniting scattered families and writing"" to men in the service about the situation in their homes.

It is no gamble, nor wild speculation aoout the existence of oil in Adair county. It is and has been for many years a well and proved fact that, for conservative operations at a time when prices amply justify the expense, we have oil in good paying quantities of reasonably shallow depth; and the beet experts and engineers who have surveyed this field give us every reason to believe that whan the new plants of "machinery beginning operations in the county this week have gone down to a sufficient depth, which has never been done before, frequent gushers will result. - ' ABOUT STATE iCBCOL INSPECTORS.

This ranking insures that in every situation somebody, always has authority and is responsible for whatever istlone. Even if two private soldiers are working together without supervision, the one who has been longer in service takes charge, and the other must obey his.orders. In civilian life there is time for argument. You may have better'ideas than your boss about how a certain thing should be done and possibly may convince him and get his original order changed. In army life nothing of that kind will be permitted. The officers in charge always has the full responsibility and whatever order he gives must be instantly obeyed. It is far better to take action, even though the thing may not be done in the best possible way, than it is to stand and debate. Like of immediate action in the crisis of a battle might mean that the army would be defeated thousands of lives lost, and possibly the honor of the country stained. The boys of Adair county, who are to enlist soon, will find nothing required of them that is beyond the power of every day Americans, i You will see clearly after you have been in the service awhile the path which Jyou are to follow. Look forward with confidence. Enter the service with firm determination of doing your best at all times, of playing square with your suppriors, your associates and yourself, and of taking care always of your assigned duties, whatever may happen. You will find that everyone else well treat you with courtesy and fairness for that is the inflexible rule of the army. Out of that rule grows the courageship and the attractiveness, even in the face of all dangers and hardships, that are characteristic of army life.
