He tells Dale of the killing of his brother, David Moreland, years affo, owner of rich coal deposits, by a man named Carlyle. Moreland's description of "Carlyle" causes Dale to believe the man was his father. CHAPTER II. Dale arranges to make his home with the Moreland family, for whom he entertains a deep respect.

Moreland agrees. CHAPTER IV. During the night all the guns belonging to the Littlefords and the Morelands mysteriously disappear. CHAPTER V. Dale arranges to go to Cincinnati to secure money for the mining of the coal. The two clans find their weapons, which the women had hidden, and line up for battle. "Babe," in an effort to stop the fighting, crosses to the Moreland side of the river, and is accidentally shot by her father and seriously altar-determined heard her tellirigyour father that she would never forgive you for the 'utterly shameless, disgraceful scene you made in church." "1 see," said Dale. He brightened and went on, "As soon as I can get my two friends down to the dining room, Bobby, you're going with me to father. We're going to claim that house and lot for you."

Everything hatl been made ready for the operation, and Babe received surgical aid without delay. The two mountaineers and Dale waited in another room. Dale had induced John Moreland to unload his riiie, both chamber and magazine. Babe's father paced the floor anxiously now and then. Moreland sat like a stone, with his empty rifle between his knees, and watched his old enemy queer!. It seemed a long time before Brae- III.-Tal- king wounded. '- CHAPTER VI. To get proper surgical aid, John Moreland, Ben Llttleford and Dale convey "Babe," unconscious, to the city. Doctors assure them she Is not seriously hurt. Dale meets an old friend, Bobby McLaurln, who had married Patricia Clavering. Telling his father of David Moreland's coal, the old gentleman's actions convince his son of his father's guilt in the killing of Moreland. The Two nodded, and the physician knelt beside the litter, which had been placed with its ends on boxes to allow lie center to swing free. He made as thorough an examination as was possible under the conditions, then arose and stood looking down upon the young woman with something like admiration in his sober, professional eyes. "Perfect physique," he said as though to himself. . t , "She will mer came to them and told them smilingly that it was all over and that the girl was then coming from under the effects of the ether. She would be all right soon, he was reasonably certain. No, they'd better not see her just then. But perhaps they could see her at some time during the afternoon of the following day. Dale escorted his two companions to a modest hotel and then put them In a room that had but one bed; by thus throwing them together in a strange land, he hoped to do something toward making them friends. Then Dale went to another room, undressed and went to bed. It may be noted, parenthetically as It were, that John Moreland and Ben Llttleford quickly reached a wordless agreement not to sleep together they divided the pillows and linens evenly, tore the odd coverlet exactly in half, and slept on the lioor. When Dale went down to the lobby the following morning an alert-eye- d young fellow sprang from a chair and hastened up to him. "By George, Bobby I" Dale exclaimed, as they began to shake hands. "How did you know 1 was here, anyway? I'our boasted nose for news, eh?" "Guilty," smiled McLaurin. "1 got word last night that a mountain girl had been brought to Braemer's, accidentally shot, and I iielled a feud ; so 1 hurried over to get the story. I'ou had just left, and Braemer's didn't know much about it. It was too soon after the operation, they said, for her to see me; then one of the nurse whispered to me that you had brought her, and said that I would hnd ou here. So here 1 am, Bill, and 1 want the story. I'll phone It in, and then 111 give you some news." "The story mustn't be published, Bobby," Dale replied. "For one reason, there Is a feud; and if the law knew, it might take a hand you see, 1 think there Is a better way to take care of that feud. And I am of the opinion that the girl wouldn't like the publicity. Suppose you forget all about it, Bobby. if McLaurin was disappointed, he kept it well to himself. "They said she was handsome, a sort of primitive Venus," he winked. "Is there a romance connected, Bill?" ".Not yet," smiled Dale. "But soon?" "Who can tell?" Dale shrugged a little. "Tell me the news." "All right." .McLaurin drew his friend toward a pair of empty chairs. "1 married Patricia Clavering the day before yesterday. We " "Bully! Go on."

"The bone there is broken in Blightly, making a compression; she will doubtless be unconscious until the pressure is relieved. But she has line chances for a quick and entire recovery, with a good surgeon on the job, so there's not much ground for worry." Dale was glad. They were all glad. Ben Llttleford laughed nervously in his sudden joy. lie went down to his knees beside his daughter, took up one of her limp hands and stroked it in a way that wab pitiful. When he arose he spoke cordially to Moreland. But Moreland didn't reply. He still looked upon Ids old enemy with contempt.

Bill Dale was at that moment entering the lobby of the Blaisdell with Kobert McLaurin at his side. Dale had just told McLaurin that he meant to go to Cincinnati to borrow money from his wealthy friend Harris. Then McLaurin told Dale something that saved him the journey to Cincinnati. "You haven't heard about Harris, Bill? I'm sorry, because he would have accommodated you. He went broke a few days ago in the cotton smash. Ho was here yesterday, and left last night for Clncy."

After making the above strong statement concerning the two amendments to the Constitution, Mrs. Reynolds continued : "There is a third point whicn fits In completely with the proposed reforms and which seems essential to its entire fulfillment and should become a law.

"In the early days of Moslem power one of the caliphs wrote to his general and asked him what the sea was like.

Consequently the caliph gave orders that no Moslem should voyage upon It, but they soon learned that they must conquer It If they were to hold their own amoag other neonles. and they subseauenUy furnished some of the most audacious and picturesque of the pirate figures.

'Red Beard' terrorized the Mediterranean world from Constantinople to the Pillars of Hercules. The excellent harbors and the island hid ing places made it possible for him to defy the fleets of England, Italy, Spain and Holland, to levy tribute on all the vessels that passed over the highway, to capture the richly laden Papal galleys bound for Rome in Moslem defiance of Christendom and chain the Christians to their oars. In 1510, at that time notorious and immensely wealthy, he changed the base of his operations to the island of Jerba, off the coast of Tunis, where the Fates ceased to smile so kindly upon him. After many battles and vicissitudes of fortune he fell before the forces of Charles V of Spain near Tremlzan on African soil. He had actually escaped, but upon learning that his faithful followers were close pressed he returned to die with them. The career of his is scarcely less brother Kheyr-er-Jiromantic. "Piracy on the American coast among the French and Spanish navigators began before the "days of the English colonists. Queen Elizabeth Is said to have covertly oountenaced as well as helped expeditions by buccaneers, and In the West Indies the trade restrictions placed by the various mother countries led to acceptance by many island governors of wares brought by navigators whom they knew to be and whose methods they could not afford to question. Piracy Road to High Office. "Perhaps the most unscrupulous and wily of the perverted sea kings was Henry Morgan of the Caribbees. He was a magnate, an indomitable ruler, a crafty strategist, and a commander of genius as well as a pirate par excellence. In fact he flirted with one danger after the other always to come out on top. He marched Into Puerto Principe in the heart of Cuba and took it despite every resistance. He outwitted with uncanny cunning the officers at Porto Bello in Panama, one hard-fought n of the strongest cures near Ee Gar- Ibbean shores and the storehouse for the riches which had been brought by Spanish galleons and mule packs from the interior. He reaped with an Inestimable amount of gold and jewels, ingeniously employing a against the Spanish to accomplish his escape when he was bottled up in Maracaibo lake. Finally he took and sacked the city of Panama. Then leaving his companions in the lurch, he slipped away at night with all the booty to Jamaica, ingratiated himself with the governor, and was clever enough to get himself Into the graces of the English king who knighted him and made him lieutenant governor of Jamaica for his 'long experience of that colony.' "In our boyhood, stories of Captain Kid were frequent. The subject of the narratives was really a respectable sailor in the merchant service with a wife and family In New York when he was commissioned by the English king In 1G90 with power to seize and destroy off the American coast all pirate ships. Having been given ships and crews to accomplish the purpose, he gayly set sail across the Atlantic, around the Cape of Good Hope to Madagascar and the Red sea to ravage East India waters and convert to his own uses his captures. Then he hied himself, so the story goes, to West Indian waters and buried his superfluous treasures before he finally went to Boston where he was captured, sent to England for trial, was executed and his body left to dangle in the wind for years as a warning to sailors." fire-sh- ip j II)K -- d Colun biaj Barber Shop SS8K- &: as MORAN A LOWE Sanitary Shop, where both Satisfactionjand Gratification are Guaranteed.

He went to McLaurin who had not yet found John Moreland and Ben Littleford and told him about It. McLaurin was almost as happy as Dale over It.

Dale shook hands with McLaurin and hurried toward the street. A few minutes later Doctor Braemer met him In the reception room. "What's wrong, doctor?" The surgeon beckoned. "Come with me." He turned and led the way through a long corridor and to a sunny white room where Babe Littleford lay with a bandage about her temples. Ben Littleford was on his knees at his daughter's bedside; he was slowly wringing his big, rough hands and begging plteously to be forgiven. Babe stared at him a trifle coldly. She had not yet seen the two men who stood in the doorway. Then she in- Major Bradley and Henderson Goff.

She turned her face the other way. was so lonesome, Bill Dale!" Kobert McLaurin's wife, Patricia, visited Babe twice daily, and a friendship that was none the less warm tor being unique sprang up quickly between them. Patricia declared to her husband that she was going to keep Babe whom she was already calling by her proper name, the same being Elizabeth and educate her. There was room in the bungalow, Patricia said; and she really needed company, because Bobby was away so much. Babe accepted little Mrs. McLaurin's offer as soon as Bill Dale convinced her that she wouldn't be merely an object of charity. The hill pride's first law is that one must pay for what he gets and it's probably the first law God laid down for old Adam in Eden. Ben Littleford seemed bewildered and blue when they told him of the arrangement, but he voiced no objection. Dale pressed upon him a loan of a hundred dollars, and ordered him to give it to his daughter, which he did. Elizabeth Littleford, of course, would need new clothing. "1 ain't even got any dresses at home," she whispered to Patricia, "but two." Bill Dale was sure now that he loved Babe, aud he was almost sure that she cared for him. But he was quite properly in no haste to come to an understanding. He had known ail along that Babe would have to be educated ! and a woman's tastes, he reasoned, might change with education. And he wanted her to have the opportunity o"f knowing other men of his class. If she couldn't love him with a lasting love, he didn't want her to love him at all. Oddly or not, he never thought of Jimmy Fayne.
