Willis, whose home was just beyond the Zion church, crossed to the other side Had he lived until the 4th of next August he would have been eighty two years old. He was a son of Judge Edmund Willis, who was prominent in Adair county during his lifetime. The deceased was an active farmer from boyhood until a few months ago, when his health, commenced to fail. He was honorable in all his transaction, a devoted hus- band, a kind father and an obliging neighbor. For years he was a consistent member of the Baptist Church and will be sorely missed, not only by his family, but by all the community in which he lived. Besides his wife and several sons and daughters he leaves one brother, Mr. H. P. Willis, near Joppa, and two sisters, Mrs. Caroline Jeffries and Miss Harriet Willis, of this place. The deceased membership was with the Zion Baptist Church, and the funeral conducted by Rev. O. P. Bush, and burial was attended by a large concourse of relatives and friends. May God comfort the widow and children in their greatest sorrow, is the wish of the writer who knew the deceased, and for whom he had the respect, for many years. -pro-found- est -- , "' For Sale. - -- 100 bushels tested 93 per cent. seed corn grown in Prince Edward, county, Va.

He looked at her long, then let his eyes fall to the battered face of his enemy. Drunkenly he got to his feet and leaned against a willow. His forces were spent, his muscles weighted as with lead.

"We found In your room one of the sacks that had held the gold you took from the bank." "That's right. I took It from the bank in the afternoon, where I had had it on deposit, to pay for the team I bought. Milton's books will show that. But you didn't find any sack I took when your bank was robbed if it was robbed," added the old man significantly. "Of course, I knew you would have an alibi. Have you got one to explain why you left town so suddenly the night the bank was robbed? Milton was killed after midnight. Before morning you and your friend Elliot routed out Ackroyd and bought a lot of supplies from him for a hurry-u- p trip. You slipped around to the corral and hit the trail right into the blizzard. Will you tell me why you were in such a hurry to get away, If It wasn't to escape from the town where you had murdered a decent old fellow who never had harmed a soul?" "Sure I'll tell you." The black eyes of the little man snapped eagerly. "I came so p. d. q. because that side pard-ne- r of mine Gordon Elliot wouldn't let me wait till mornin'. He had a reason for leavin' town that wouldn't wait a minute, one big enough to drive him right into the heart of the blizzard. Me, I tagged along." "I can guess his reason," jeered the Scotsman. "But I'd like to hear you put a name to It." Holt grinned maliciously and waved a hand toward the girl who was pillowing the head of her lover. "The name of his reason is Sheba O'Neill, but it's to be Sheba Elliot soon, looks like." "You mean " The little miner took the words triumphantly out of his mouth. He leaned forward and threw them into the face of the man he hated. "I mean that while you was dancin' and philan-derlwith other women, Gordon Elliot was buckln' a blizzard to save the life of the girl you both claimed to love. He was mushln' into fifty miles of frozen hell while you was fillln' up with potted grouse and champagne. Simultaneous with the lame goose and the monkey singlestep you was doin', this lad was windjammin' through white drifts. He beat you at your own game, man. You're a bear for the outdoor stuff, they tell me. You chew up a blizzard for breakfast and throttle a pack of wolves to work up an appetite for dinner. It's your specialty. All right. Take your hat off to that chechacko who has just whaled you blind. He has outgamed you, Colby Macdonald. You don't run In his class. I see he is holding his hald up r again. Give him another and he'll be ready to go to the mat with you again." The big Alaskan pushed away a fear that had been lingering in his mind ever since he had stumbled on that body burled in the snow yesterday afternoon. Was his enemy going to escape him, after all? Could Holt be telling the true reason why they had left town so hurriedly? He would not let himself believe it. "You ought to work up a better story than that," he said contemptuously. "You can throw a husky through the holes in it. How could Elliot know, for Instance, that Miss O'Neill was not safe?" "The same way you could a' known It," snapped old Gideon. "He phoned to Smith's Crossln' and found the stage hadn't got In and that there was a whale of a storm up in the hills." Macdonald set his face. "You're lying to me. You .stumbled over the stage while you were making your getaway. Now you're playing it for an alibi." Elliot had risen. Sheba stood beside him, her hand In his. She spoke quietly. "It's the truth. Believe it or not as you please. Wo care nothing about; n' half-hou- "It's a difference of opinion makes What else have you got He was too proud to stay and watch them. It was impossible to escape him in the deep snow that filled the hill trails, and he was convinced they would attempt nothing of the kind. The Scotsman felt for the first time In his life old and spent. Under tremendous difficulty he had mushed for two days and had at last run his men down. The lust of vengeance had sat on his shoulders every mile of the way and had driven him feverishly forward. But the salt that had lent a savor to his passion was gone. Even though he won, he lost. For Sheba had gone over to the enemy. With the fierce willfulness of his temperament he tried to tread under foot his doubts about the guilt of Holt and Elliot Success had made him arrogant and he was not a good loser. look.

He hated the man who had robbed him of Sheba, but he could not escape respecting him. Elliot had fought until he had been hammered down into unconsciousness and he had crawled to his feet and stood erect with the smile of the unconquered on his lips. Was this the sort of man to murder In cold blood a kindly old gentleman who had never harmed him? The only answer Macdonald found was that Milton had taken him and his partner by surprise. They had been driven to shoot the cashier to cover up their crime. Perhaps Holt or another had fired the actual shots, but Elliot was none the less guilty. The heart of the Scotsman was bitter within him. He intended to see that his enemies paid to the last ounce. He would hurry them to the gallows If money and Influence could do It. None the less, his doubts persisted. If they had planned the bank robbery, why did they wait so long to buy supplies for their escape? Why had they aot taken the river instead of the hill trail? The story that his enemies told hung together. It had the ring of truth. The facts supported it. One piece of evidence In their favor Macdonald alone knew. It lay burled in the deep snows of the hills. He shut his strong teeth in the firm resolve that it should stay there. The weather had moderated a good deal, but the trail was a protected forest one. The two teams now going down had come up, so that the path was packed fairly hard and smooth. Holt lay propped on his own sled against the sleeping-bags- . Sheba mushed behind Gordon.

The stab of her eyes, the carriage of the slim, pliant figure with its suggestion of fine gallantry, challenged her former lover to do his worst. On the battered face of Gordon was a smile. So long as his Irish sweetheart stood by him he did not care If he were charged with high treason. It was worth all It cost to feel the warmth of her brave, impulsive trust. eyes of Macdonald The deep-sclinched with those of his rival. "You cached the rest of the gold, I suppose," he said doggedly. With a lilt of his shoulders the younger man answered lightly: "There are none so blind as those who will not see, Mr. Macdonald." He turned to Sheba. "Come. We must make breaket fast" -- -- idre -- Scotch-Canadia- .drunk "You're going to Kuslak with me," his enemy said bluntly. "After we have eaten, Mr. Macdonald," returned Elliot with an ironic bow. "Perhaps, if you have not had breakfast yet, you will join us." "We start in half an hour," announced the mine-owncurtly, and he turned on his heel. The rifle lay where Sheba had dropped it when she ran to gather her stricken lover Into her arms. Macdonald picked it up and strode over the brow of tha bill without a backward er Though she tried not to let her lover know It, Sheba was troubled at heart. Gordon was practically the prisoner of a man who hated him bitterly, who believed him guilty of murder, and who would go through fire to bring punishment home to him. She knew the power of Macdonald. With the money' back of him, he had for two years fought against and almost prevailed over a strong public opinion in the United States. He was as masterful in his hatred as in his love. The dominant fighting figure In the Northwest, he trod his sturdy way through opposition like a Colossus. Nor did she any longer have any Illusions about him. He could be both ruthless and unscrupulous when it suited his purpose. As the day wore toward noon, her spirits drooped. She was tired physically, and this reacted upon her courage. The warmer weather was spoiling the trail. It became so soft and mushy that though snowshoes were needed, they could not be worn dn account of the heavy snow which clung to them every time a foot was lifted. They wore mukluksbut Sheba was wet to the knees. The spring had gone from her step. Her shoulders began to sag. For some time Gordon's eye had been seeking a good place for a day camp. He found it in a bit of open timber above the trail, and without a word he swung his team from the path. "Where are you going?" demanded Macdonald. "Going to DEHLEP BROS. CO. 1 16 Eaat MatKe!

BOHEMIAN LEADER The Finest Horse In Kentucky Will serve a limited number of mares this season for $25.00 to insure a living colt. Never in the history of the Horse Business have the people of Adair and Adjoining counties had the privilege of breeding to as fine a horse as Bohemian Leader, and at such a low price. His Sires and Grand Sires make the season for $50.00 and $75.00. So I have cut the price from onehalf to onethird and you can breed to as good a horse as the Sire or Grand Sires.

This family of horses have won at every State Fair and Inteanational Horse Show in the U. S., all of the Big Stakes that have ever been offered. American Girl, dam of Bohemian Leader, was sold by Ball Bros., for $5,000 the highest price ever paid for a Saddle mare Bohemian King, the Sire, was bought by Allan Edelen at two years old for $10,000, the highest price ever paid in America for a saddle horse at this age. Bohemian King won the championship at the State Fair, at 3 years old, something no other horse ever done except his sire, Bourbon King.

Bohemian King, who wherever shown. Bohemian Art won the $500.00 stake at Topeka, Kans. Bohemian Music, owned by Tom Bass, won the same stake at the Missouri State Fair, and Bohemian Actress, owned by P. J. Donnelly, of St. Louis Royal Show, besides winning several other events.
