Listen, mother, it might ha' been this away: CHAPTER XI By Heck Keeps a Secret. WJien Sheriff Tom Flowers and the others had been gone for half an hour, Elizabeth Littleford sat up in the silence. It was a ;:reat and heavy silence that hovered there over the north nd of David Moreland's mountain. There was not even the dnmuniiii; of a not een the sanej chattering of a boomer squirrel, not even the twittering of a bird. Not a leaf stirred anywhere. Everything seemed lifeless. It was almost as though she were the sole inhabitant of the world. Then she thought. It was noontime, and the oflicer and his prisoner would doubtless halt at John Moreland's cabin for the noonday meal; and if she hastened she would get to see Bill Dale again. So she ran like a doe through the green woodland, through the tangle of d laurel and ivy and over the stones, across a shoulder of David Moreland's mountain. She was barefooted, and her dress was a simblue ple garment of white-dottecalico, and her long brown hair flowed behind her like the hair of a young witch because of the excitement of the morning, she had forgotten to give It its usual daily plaiting. As she drew near to the Moreland leader's home, she saw Bill Dale and the sheriff walk out at the gateway and mount their horses. Major Bradley came out, and lie, too, mounted his horse; and she was glad that he was going along. There was a great crowd ; all the Littlefords were there, and all the Morelands, and old Granny, Heck, On every face Babe the fortune-tellesaw signs of sympathy and sorrow. Her eyes filled. She was so glad that they, too, loved him. It was worth going to jail to know that one was loved like that! Not that it didn't hurt to see him going to jail, of course. Jail and horror are words that mean the same to the mountain dweller. She went on to tell him good-bShe knew It would be hard, but- she steeled herself; she would be a Littleford, and strong. He saw her coming, and he turned his bay horse and rode to meet her. She stopped and clasped her hands, with her arms down full danghter. "La, la, la!" she panted, for the lengthy and tried to smile at hlin. days were warm. "And hain't it jest moss-covered r. y. -- "He is ahind of a tree, and Adam is ahind of another tree.

"I reckon It does," granted the old woman. "But who was It shot Black Adam?" "Somebody who is a friend o' Bill Dale's," said Babe. "Somebody who Bill with the.

"I hain't never fo'got," Babe went on, after a moment, "about Black me about Adam Ball that same trick on a man over In Nawth Ca'liner and he killed the man. The law never found it out. And ye see what Black Adam got. 'Who lives by the sword shall perish by the sword.' It's in the Good Book, mother, honey; and everything in the Good Book is God A'mighty's truth, as you know." "Ef I was pinned down to guess who it was 'at done it," drawled Mrs. Littleford, "I'd guess it was By Heck. He was a plumb fool about Bill Dale. His maw she says he talks in his sleep about Bill Dale. He was alius him around like a dawg." Babe pointed to the meadow.

It was a little after nightfall when Dale and the other two men rode through the shaded streets. Dale noted that the people they met under the swinging lights spoke cordially and with marked courtesy to his companions. It was very evident that the officer and Major Bradley were In high standing In their home town. Sheriff Tom Flowers drew in before a hltching-racthat stood In front of the courthouse, a great old wooden building with a clock in its tower. "We'll dismount here," said he. They did.

I wish to ta. matters over with you. Suppose I bring supper for us both, eh?" Dale thanked Bradley, and turned away with the oflicer. They walked a short block and entered a low, square building of brick and stone of which the windows were small and high and barred with Iron.

Forthwith he dispatched a deputy for Judge Carter and Major Bradley, who hastened to the Jail. An hour later Caleb Moreland was the occupant of the cell at the end of the whitewashed corridor, and Dale was mounting his hay horse Fox to ride back Into the heart of the everlasting hills. He arrived two hours after nightfall. The Morelands were glad to see him, and the LIttlefords were glad to see him. There was rejoicing there In the broad valley that lies betwc n David Moreland's mountain and the Big Pine. Everybody had been expecting him, and many were the pairs of eyes that had been watching for him. He found himself suddenly wishing, with a tightening at his throat, that his father could know how much bigger and how much better It was to be thus esteemed than to be wealthy. Luke took charge of his tired horse and led It away to the old log barn and to some fifteen ears of yellow corn. Luke's father escorted him proudly, the guest of honor, In to one of Addle Moreland's Incomparable suppers, which was none the worse for being late. Several LIttlefords sat at the long, homemade table. John Moreland turned up the light a little, and cracked a worn but timely joke; then he looked toward one of the men whom he had fought throughout many years, and muttered Into his thick brown beard: 'Saul, friend, will ye do us the favor o' axin' the blessin', ef ye please?" "Shore, John, o' course." Saul Littleford, the very Illiterate, laced his big fingers together across his plate, bent his head, and told the good Almighty that they were all very much obliged to Him for the tine supper they had before them, for Addle Moreland who had cooked It for peace, and for Bill Dale. . . . It was almost midnight when the visitors left. They had been sitting outside, on the honeysuckle-scente- d front porch and In the cabin yard. At last Bill Dale and John Moreland were left together on the porch. "There's a thing that has puzzled me since the moment I got here this evening," said Dale. "Why Is it that nobody seems to be grieving over Caleb's being in jail?" The big hlllman's answer came, almost sharply: "No Moreland ever grieved over a sacrifyce, BUI." Dale sat up straight. "A sacrifice! What do you mean?" This time the big hlllman's answer came slowly. "I mean 'at Cale he's a .akin' all o' the load off o' yore shoulders 'at he can. Cale he's yore place in jail ontel the trial comes off, whlch'll be at the October terra o' co'te. He trusts you to come back and set him free on the day o' the trial. O' course you'll do It ; we hain't never doubted that fo' one little minute, Bill. But It wasn't all done fo' yore sake. You're the hope o' the Morelands, and you can do a heap more here 'an Caleb can." He leaned toward Bill Dale and went on In a confidential tone: "And I can tell ye this here, ef you're found guilty o' killin' Adam Ball, and sentenced fo' even one year, the Morelands and the Littlefords is to take ye from the officers and turn ye loose with a good, long start on the law." "Wouldn't that be rather" Dale broke off because he had seen the tall figure of a man appear in the open gateway. It was By Heck, and he spoke. "Hello, John Moreland!" "Hello yeself!" growled Moreland, who was not at all pleased at the InJUVli. to die, wlth.TvTia,t is knowed rifle-bullet gen'ai-i- y In tills section as the CHAPTER The XIII CLAN CALL By Hapsburg Liebe Illustrations by Irwin.

Sheriff Tom Flowers and four able deputies rode out of Cartersville very early on the following morning. They went to the Big Pine mountain country, and, by a scheme that entailed some shrewdness on the part of the chief officer, arrested two Balls and two Torreys on suspicion and took them away without trouble. The two Balls and the two Torreys were lodged in the Cartersville jail and offered their liberty and exoneration from all .blame in the dynamiting affair if they would give the names of the other guilty parties and appear against them. The mountaineers declared stoutly that they knew nothing whatever of the matter, and when pressure was applied they grew sullen and refused to talk at all. It was plain to Flowers that they did know something about It, and he finally ordered that they be kept In a cell on a diet of bread and water until their tongues loosened. At which the Balls and Torreys swore loudly and swore that they would rot In jail first unless their kinsmen came and shot up the town and liberated them by force! "To me that Is proof that you four are guilty," grimly smiled the sheriff. "And If your folks want to try storming the jail, let them. A full company of militia can be rushed here within an hour, at any time, and we'll give your folks all the fun they want." It may be recorded that the four hillmen never confessed. Bill Dale, closely shadowed by one lanky Samuel Heck with his inevitable, rifle, went among the workers with a cheer that he did not feel. For Caleb Moreland was In jail, and Caleb Moreland was Innocent. But there was one sincere delight for Dale: Hayes was driving the little railroad nhead with all his might and all the might of his men. Hayes was In high favor with those under him; they worked even harder when he was absent than they worked when he was standing over them. The days ran on, and there was no sign of a hostile demonstration from the Balls and Torreys.

Interesting Experience of a Texas Lady Who Declares That if More Women Knew About Cardui They Would Be Spared Much Sickness Navasota, Texas. Mrs. W. M. Peden, of this place, relates the following interesting account of how she recovered her strength, having realized that she was actually losing her health: "Health is the greatest thing in the world, and when jou feel that gradually slipping away from you, you certainly sit up and take notice. That is what I did some time ago when I found myself in a condition of very nervous, I was so tired and felt so lifeless health. I could hardly go at all. "I was just no account for work. I would get a bucket of water and would feel so weak I would have to set it down before I felt like I could Hit it to the shelf. In this condition, of course, to do even my housework was a task almost impossible to accomplish. "1 was . . . nervous and easily upset. run-do- and Worry. couldn't rest well at night and was . . . just lifeless. "I heard of Cardui and after reading I decided I had some female trouble that was pulling me down. I sent for Cardui and began it . .

Henderson Goff had disappeared. Dale hoped that he was rid of the man for all time, but he wasn't Goff was not so confident as was Major Bradley that he could establish his Innocence In the matter of the dynamiting of the two buildings and the trestle. He wished very much to steer clear of arrest, for reasons of his own, and he was biding his time in a little town in western North Carolina. When the dynamiting affair had blown over, he would go back and try again, perhaps by an altogether new scheme, to get himself Into possession of the More-lan- d coal. Then there came to the neighborhood a man whom no Moreland, and none of the Littlefords. had ever set eyes upon before. He was a very uncouth mountain man, with long black hair and shaggy beard: his clothing was outlandish and ragged. He had not much to say: there was about him, somehow, an air of mystery. Two days after his arrival, in the afternoon, the stranger met Dale midway between the Halfway switch and the opening of the. coal vein, and stopped him with an unnrnisod hand "Do you know good coal when ye see it?" he drawled. "Why?" asked Dale, on his jruarrl. The stranger looked sharply in all directions, as thoirzli he wifhed to make sure that no person wa within earshot of them. Evidently satisfied, he drew from a trousers pocket a shining black lump of coal, which he held out for Dale's inspection. "What do je think o' this here?" he wanted to know. Dale took the lump and examined It closely. It was apparently a- - good as the Moreland coal, which had N;nr the expert Hayes into raptures. Dale r:.en looked c!o-e- l at the strnuget. He appeared to he honest : his gaze was steady, and seemed very innocent. "Where did you get th?" Dale asked. The alert eyes narrowed. "Do ye think this here vein you're to mine is the only vein In the whole country?" "Where did you get this?" Dale repeated. ."Do ye think," drawled the other, "'at I'm plumb fool enough to give my find away fo' nothln'? I been pore all o' my life, mister!" "How am I to know," frowned Dale, "that you've really. got a find?" "Ye'd believe yore own two eyes, wouldn't ye?" "Yes," Dale agreed, "I'd believe my own two eyes, of course. What's your name, and where are you from?" "What do I git outen it? I don't own the mountain it's in, but It shore can be bought fo' fifteen cents a acre. And nobody knows about it but jest me. It lays closer to the railroad 'an this here Moreland vein, too. What doI git outen it, mister?" TO BE CONTINUED house work. "Later I took a bottle of Cardui as a tonic. I can recommend Cardui and gladly do so, for if more women knew, it would save a great deal of worry and 1 One-Pri- ce sickness." The enthusiastic praise of thousands ol other women who have found Cardui helpful should convince you that it is worth trying. AH druggists sell it 1.73 dell-clou- s.

Experiments conducted J)y the station show that tankage fed in a self feeder as a supplement to corn made the best combination for hogging-of- f purposes. By this method of feeding the animals were kept healthier and were ready for the market earlier than those fed by other methods. The corn and tankage produced an average daily gain of 1,475 pounds of pork on the animals which received it. Corn and soybeans grown together and hogged off also made a good combination, this system of feeding resulting in an average daily gain of a little more than one pound of pork on all animals in the lot. The six year average obtained by the station in hogging down soybeans with an allowance of two and per cent, of the body weight of the hogs in corn daily resulted in an average production of 681 pounds of pork an acre with a net profit of $15.97 an acre. Corn alone when hogged off produced an average daily gain of a little more than three-fourtof pound of pork. a Results obtained in the experiment indicate that it is best to use hogs weighing about 100 pounds in hogging off fields. If the animals are smaller than this they are unable to get the corn down while larger animals do not make as eeonom'cal gains. From general observations-madin the experiments it pays to start hogging down corn and soybeans about the time the beans are in the dough stage, putting enough animals in the field to clean up the crop in about 35 to 40 days. When corn alone is hogged down the animal9 should be turned into the field as soon as the grain has passed the glazed stage. one-half hs e the , fairly informed on Washington affairs knows that Senator Lodge is, and has been for many years, a widower.

That is the only reason the physician can give for the remarkable progress he has shown in a gallant fight for life at the Abington Memorial hospital, where the belief is now expressed that he will live. Sometime ago Donnelly was stricken with appendicitis and a hurried operation was decided upon. Alarming symptoms developed and then pneumonia set in.
