Every thing pertaining to the great war is told by the best of writers, and to keep posted, this publication is the best book to read in order to get correct ideas of the great conflict. Address the Review of Reviews, 30 Irving Place, New York, N. Y. Last Friday afternoon about 3:30 o'clock, the citizens of Columbia were notified that Wm. Isaac Meader, who was reared in this place and lived here until he was about twenty-siyears old, had suddenly died in the suburbs of his home town, Campbellsville. The deceased had left his residence and gone to a vacant lot that he owned on the Spurlington road, just outside the corporate limits, where he was having some work done. He left the lot and went into the grocery store, owned by Harmon White. He called for a cigar, lighting It, he remarked to Mr. White "that he was sick and for him to catch him, that he was going to fall." Mr White went to him, but before he could be lowered to the floor Mr. Meader was dead. The alarm was given and the body was removed to the residence of the deceased, amid the tears and screams of the strlckened family. W. I. Meader was born in Campbellsville about sixty years ago. His father, Daniel Meadei, was a native of Scotland and was a sculptor by trade. He wasjnarried to .Miss Martha Barbee, of this place, about the year 1854, and a short time after this marriage Mr. and Mrs. Meader took up their residence in Campbellsville where the deceased was born. While yet an infant his parents returned to Columbia to live and it was here that W. I. Meader resided until he was about 26 years old, as stated above. When quite a young man he married Miss Laura Gaines, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Gaines, of Taylor county, and with his young wife he continued to live here for some time, but in a few years after their union they removed to Campbellsville where he resided continuously until his x E H. Stoevers, of Cincinnati, representing four different companies, reached Columbia a few days ago, and is at the Jeff ries' Hotel. A representative of the News called to see him, gaining the following information: "I represent four different companies, all of them in possession of holdings in Adair county. I know that my companies will put down at least eight wells in this county this spring and summer. I am expecting a drilling outfit in the next ten days if it can possibly get here. It is very heavy and the roads must be in good order to get it here f romjthe railroad. There is no doubt but the county of Adair will be developed, and I feel sure that oil his here. Our first well will be drilled on Crocus creek. There are other companies who are coming to Adair and will put down wells." Mr. Stoevers is a very enthusiastic oil man, having been in the business for many years, and his opinion as to territory is worth something. If oil should be found here in paying quan tities, Adair will become a great busi ness section, and oil speculators from the East and West will flock here in large numbers.

"He left the hotel with Holt about five this morning, the porter says." This was the contribution of the landlord. The room of Gordon Elliot was in great disorder. Garments had been tossed on the bed and on every chair and had been left to lie wherever they had chanced to fall. Plainly their owner had been In great haste. Macdonald looked through the closet where clothes hung. "His new fur coat Is not here-n- or his trail boots. Looks to me as though Mr. Gordon had hit the trail with his friend Holt." All doubt of this was removed when a prospector reached town with the news that he had met Holt and Elliot traveling toward the divide as fast as they could drive the dogs. The big Scotsman ordered his team of Siberian made ready for the trail. As he donned his heavy furs, Colby Macdonald smiled with deep satisfaction. He had Elliot on the run at last. Just as he closed the door of his room, Macdonald heard the telephone bell ring. He hesitated, then shrugged his shoulders and strode out Into the storm.

That ha lefx gives ns He turned abruptly away and began examining the safe. The silver still stood sacked in one large compartment. The bank notes had escaped the hurried search of the robbers, but the gold was practically all gone. One sack had been torn by the explosion and single pieces of gold could be found all over the safe. Macdonald glanced over the papers rapidly. The officer picked up one of dozens scattered over the floor. It was a mortgage note made out to the bank by a miner. He collected the others. Evidently the bandits had torn off the rubber, glanced over one or two to see if they had any cash value, and tossed the package Into the air as a disgusted gambler does a pack of cards. The bank president stepped to the door and threw it open. He explained the situation in three sentences. "I can't let you In now, boys, until the coroner has been here," he went on to tell the crowd.' "But there Is one way you can all help. Keep your eyes open. If you have seen any suspicious characters around, let me know. Or if anyone has left town In a hurry or been seen doing anything during the night that you did not understand at the time." A man named Fred Tague pushed to the front He kept a feed corral near the edge of town. "I can tell you one man who mushed out before Ave o'clock this morning and that's Gld Holt" The eyes of Macdonald, cold and hard as jade, fastened to the man. "How do you know?" "That dog team he bought from Tim Ryan Well, he's been keeping it In my corral. When I got there this morning It was gone. The snow hadn't wiped out the tracks of the runners yet, so he couldn't have left more than ' fifteen minutes before." "You don't know that Holt took the team himself?" "Come to that, I don't. But he had a key to the barn where the sled was. Holt has been putting up at the hotel. I reckon It Is easy to find out If he's still there." Macdonald's keen brain followed the facts as the nose of a bloodhound does a trail. Holt, an open enemy of his, had reached town only two days before. He had bought one of the best and swiftest dog teams In the North and had let slip before witnesses the remark that Macdonald would soon find out what he wanted with the outfit The bank had been robbed after midnight. To file open the grill and to blow up the safe must have taken several hours. Before morning the dogs of Holt had taken the trail. If their owner were with them, it was a safe bet that the sled carried forty thousand dollars in Alaska gold dust So far the mind of the Scotsman followed the probabilities logically, but at this point It made a jump. There were at least two robbers. He was morally sure of that, for this was not n job. Now, if Holt had with a him a companion, who of all those In Kuslak was the most likely man? He was a friendless, crabbed old fellow. Since coming to Kuslak old Gideon bad been seen constantly with one man. They had been with each other at dinner and had later left the hotel together. The name of the man who had been so friendly with old Holt was Gordon Elliot and Elliot not only was another enemy of Macdonald, but had very good reasons for getting out of the country just now. The strong jaw of the stood out sallently as he gave short sharp orders to men in the crowd. One was to get the coroner, a second Wally Selfrldge, another the United States district attorney. He divided the rest into squads to guard the roads leading out of town and .to see that nobody passed for the present The coroner took charge of Ihe body and Wally of the bank. The mine-ownc r.r talked and the district tip to the hotel together. As soon as they had explained what they wanted, the landlord got a passkey and took them to the room Holt had used. Apparently the bed had ben slept In. In the waste-papbasket the district attorney found something which he held jon Jn a significant sllenre- one-mamine-own- er er er The Winners of the Great Alaska Sweepstakes Were Flying Down the Street. flying down the street in the teeth of the storm. Armed with a rifle and a revolver, their owner was mushing into the hills to bring back thejinen who had robbed his bank and killed the cashier. He traveled alone because he could go faster without a companion. It never occurred to him that he was not a match for any two men he might face. rV, tvs . CHAPTER XX. -- vvi :z the Blizzard. "Swlftwater" Pete, the driver of the stage between Kuslak and Katma, did not like the look of the sky as his ponies breasted the long uphill climb that ended at the pass. "Glttin her back up for a blizzard, looks like. Doggone It, If that wouldn't jest be my luck," he murmured fretfully. Sheba hoped there would be one, not, of course, a really, truly blizzard such as Macdonald had told her about, but e one, enough the tall of a send her glowing with exhilaration to Into the roadhouse with the happy sense of an adventure achieved. The girl was buoyed up by a sense of freedom. For a time, at least, she was escaping Macdonald's driving energy, the appeal of Gordon Elliot's warm friendliness, and the unvoiced urging of Diane. Good old Peter and the kiddles were the only ones that let her alone. She looked back at the horses laboring up the hill. Swiftwater had got down and was urging them forward, his long whip crackling about the ears of the leaders. He was worried. He would have liked to turn and run for It. But the last roadhouse was twenty-sevemiles back. If the blizzard came howling down the slope they would have a sweet time of it reaching safety. Smith's Crossing was on the other side of the divide, only nine miles away. They would have to worry through somehow. Miss O'Neill knew that Swiftwater Pete was anxious, and though she was not yet afraid, the girl understood the reason for it. The road ran through the heart of a vast snow-fielthe surface of which was being swept by a screaming wind. The air was full of sifted white dust and the road furrow "was rapidly filling. Soon it would be obliterated. Sheba tramped behind the ,stage-drivand in her tracks walked Mrs. Olson, the other passenger. Through the 'muffled scream of the storm Swiftwater shouted back to Sheba. "You wanta keep close to me." She nodded her head. His order needed no explanation. The world was narrowing to a lane whose walls she could almost touch with her fingers. A pall of white wrapped them. Upon them beat a wind of stinging sleet. Nothing could be seen but the blurred outlines of the stage and the driver's figure. The bitter cold searched through Sheba's fnrs to. bar satt Bash and tha In make-believn d, er -- blast of powdered Ice beat upon her face. The snow was getting deeper as the road filled. Once or twice she stumbled and fell. Her strength ebbed, and the hinges of her knees gave unexpectedly beneath her.

He flung Mrs. Olson astride one of the wheelers and helped Sheba to the back of the right leader. Swiftwater clambered upon its mate himself. Than EverAre Our Gigantic Stocks Of The girl paid no attention to where they were going. The urge of life was so faint within her that she did not greatly care whether she lived or died.

"Got to stable the horses," he ex& plained, and left them. After a time he came back and lit a 522-5- 24 TV. Market St., fire In the sheet-Iro- n stove. As the circulation that meant life flooded back Louisville, Kentucky. Into her chilled veins Sheba endured a half-hou-r of excruciating pain. She had to clench her teeth to keep back the groans. The cabin was empty of furniture except for a home-mad- e table, rough stools, and the frame of a bed. The last occupant had left a little firewood beside the stove, enough to last perIncorporated haps for twenty-fou- r hours. Sheba did not need to be told that If the blizPT.ATST zard lasted long enough, they would starve to death.
