Night fell during the wordy and profane harangue of the Ball leader, and It was ordered that a fire be built at once. At once a fire was built, dry brushwood being used, and in its red and flickering glare the faces of the hillmen looked doubly dark and doubly wicked. Then the judge begged a chew of tobacco and deliberately kept the whole twist, and told the jury to go out and bring back a verdict without losing time. The twelve mountaineers rose unsteadily and went to the creek, and there one of them uncovered another jug of fiery new whisky that was alien to a revenue stamp.

More-lands, Ben daughter had Liiuierorors changed much In many ways. She had tried as hard as ever mortal tried to learn the correct use of words; and Mrs. Dale had been patient, painstaking and efficient In her teachings. Not that Elizabeth was educated, In any real sense of the word. Far from it But her Improvement was, in all truth, quite remarkable. She wore more or less costly gowns now, and a few jewels, thanks to Mrs. Dale, and wherever she went she attracted admiring glances. Jimmy Fayne had been coming to see her when Mrs. Dale would permit it, which was not very often. Jimmy Fayne, as Patricia McLaurin had once been moved to say, was a fan seeing young man for all his weaknesses; he had known in advance that the laurel bloom would change to a rose, and then to a white hyacinth. Perhaps he even considered the fact that she would make a better wife for him. and a better mother for his children, than some fragile and woman of a patrician house that had about run out At any rate, Jimmy Fayne. the had decided that he would marry her. During those weeks that had been made happy by an occasional hour a the home of the Dales, Fayne had not once mentioned marriage. He figured and wisely enough, that to he toe quick with his proposal would be to lose everything. But now he meant to propose, for he knew that Miss Littleford intended going home for a visit and he knew that when she went home she would see Carlyle Dale. The truth was, of course, that Miss Littleford was going to Tennessee to attend the October term of court at Cartersville. It was a little after the middle of a bright afternoon. He found her sitting on an iron settee in a secluded corner of the lawn, where cape jessamines and lilac bushes grew in orderly array.

She looked up at him. He was immaculately dressed. "Of course," she granted with a smile that was very winsome. He stated his mission briefly, for Mrs. Dale might appear at any minute. "I came, Elizabeth, to ask you to marry me." She sat as still as though she had not heard. He went on hastily: "I confess that I'm a little ashamed of trying to take you away from Carlyle Dale, for he was always very nice to me. But I may be forgiven for that, I think, because I care for you a grea deal. Anyway 'All is fair in love and war' you know." His voice was hardly businesslike, but it lacked original fire. Elizabeth Littleford closed the book in her lap. and lifted her clear brown eyes to his eager face. "No," she disagreed, "all ain't isn't fair in love and war. That's one o' the very silliest sayln's I've ever heard. As for the other I like you, Jimmy, but not in the way you want me to. It's Bill Dale that I like in that way. Jimmy." Fayne looked disappointed. He was silent. "You're a good boy, Jimmy," she went on, "and I hate to make you feel the least bit bad. It makes me oh, Jimmy, it makes me blue. I wish you hadn't asked me. I'm sure you'll find some better girl than me than 1 for a wife." "There is no better girl than you. I'm going to wait and Hlizahetli. hope."

And when at last she slept, she dreamed of walking through a fragrant green meadow with Bill Dale. There wad the low humming of wild bees about the purple crowns of the Ironweed and the scarlet bloom of the clover; there was the mating call of the partridge, and die lovelorn coo of a dove. CHAPTER XV. . . . I ', manners. But but if yon love, if you're sure you do, tell me whyl There came another minute of painful silence. "Because," said Dale, speaking slowly,' "you have always seemed to be one of my own kind. You seem real, to me. I was so sick of artificialities in women that I loved you the moment I saw you. I know you are primitive, but I am primitive, too. And you weren't calling yourself good, h' a gin ; ana I nam t uavent even koc. to a d d poodle. . . . Tried. Two days before Bill Dale was tried In court at Cartersville, the new Elizabeth Littleford alighted from an afternoon train at the Halfway switch. She was dressed In a smart and neatly-fittinsuit of dark blue, with lacey white at her throat and at her wrists; she wore a hat of dark blue relieved by a touch of white. fn one of her strong and gloved bands she carried a traveling bag of black g well-shaped, "Major Bradley," he went on, "feels sure that I will be acquitted. If It turns out like that, I want you to marry me at once. Tell me will you, Babe?" How boyishly impatient he was. Was he afraid he would lose her by waiting? "You love me, don't you, Babe?" he Dale sat up straight and rigid Id bis saddle, and stared hard at her solemnly beautiful profile. He could hardly believe that he had heard correctly. He knew she loved him. She had told him that she loved him. Then why wouldn't she marry him? He tried to reason it out, and the attempt made his brain ache; he was unable to reason. He knew only that she was all of the future to him, all of the world to him, and that she had refused to marry him. When they were within two miles of home, Dale went suddenly white and caught her almost rudely by a wrist "Is It Jimmy Fayne?" he demanded pursued. leather. A big and sunburned young man In boots and corduroys hastened to her. d He raised his hat, smiled, took the bag, and pressed her hand as though he was very glad to see her. "Bill Dale !" she cried joyously above the roar of the passing train. "Bill Dale, it's you !" "Sure, It's me!" laughed Dale. "How good you look! I can hardly believe It's you." "But it Is." she smiled. "Toil mat wnat do you think the outcome o your trial is going to be?" Dale noted that her English had improved, and It was gratifying to him. As for the trial "I don't know," he said. "But Major Bradley thinks I'll come clear. He believes that somebody that was hidden ou the moutainside above us shot Ball to save me. By Heck hinted that he knew that this was the case; and he Intimated that I would stand a better chance of acquittal than anybody else would stand, and that if I received a sentence the right man would come forward with a confession. I have an idea that By Heck himself killed Adam Ball that Is, If I didn't do it" "And Cale Moreland wasn't It fine for him to do what he done for you, BUI Dale? How are you gettln' along with the mine?" "First rate," Dale answered, brightening at once. "We're shipping now. And we're getting a smashing price for every ounce of It" "I see," said the young woman. He went on: "All of the boys and girls of the Morelands, except the very little ones, are In school at Cartersville, and they're learning fast. When our borrowed capital Is paid back, the More-lan- d families are going to buy farms lying near Cartersville and go to them. A big lowland farm close to good schools and a good little town well, there are worse places on earth. Pity poor David Moreland can't know about broad-rimme- She faced him with the sudden, queer light of a tragedy In her eyes. But she didn't speak He pressed her hand until it hurt and demanded: "You do, don't you, Babe?" "Yes," she told him, in a voice that he barely heard. "Then why won't you marry me?" She didn't answer. She wouldn't answer. The day of the trial dawned clear, with the snap of autumn In the air. The courthouse was filled to Its rapacity within fifteen minutes after the doors were thrown open. Every man who had a rifle was forced to leave It behind with the sheriffs deputies; a company of the state's militia was there, and each member of It had a hundred rounds of ball cartridges In his belt the authorities were taking no chances. Amid a breathless hush, the wheels of the law began to move. Caleb More-lan- d quickly told what he had to say, and backed it up with proof; he brought out a perfect alibi. The judge and the jury frowned and smiled cigaretty aftertaste. ? St 1 And remember this! Camels come in one size package only 20 cigarettes just the right size to make the greatest saving in production and packing. This saving goes straight into Camel Quality.

He flung her hand from him angrily. Dale did not speak again until they had entered the broad valley that was home to him. Somehow he felt limp now. The great wave of anger had passed. "I guess you are too good for me," he said. There was weakness In his voice, and It was the first weakness she had ever known In him. "Will you always think of me as the finest and most beautiful woman In the world?' she asked. "Always." "It's the best I can hope for," murmured Elizabeth. "What do you mean?" "It's the best I can hope for," Elizabeth repeated as though she were talking to herself. They rode on In silence. It J. REYNOLDS TOBACCO amel CO.. Winston-Sale- N.

She was thinking, as she had so often thought before, of her own benighted people. "And the Littlefords?" she murmured. It had slipped past her lips. Dale and the Morelands owed the Littlefords nothing. Dale understood, and he gave her a sympathetic glance. "A few of the boys and girls of the Littlefords are going to school in Cartersville, perhaps one from each family," he told her. "It is rather expensive, you know, on account of the boarding, and they can't afford to However, I send all their children. think ultimately your people will have their chance for education, too."

He pleaded "Not Guilty." A little later the state introduced Its evidence and rested. The counsel for the defense, patrician and soldier-likimmaculate from his toes to the crown of his head, went eagerly to his feet He had fully prepared himself, and he delivered his argument with an eloquent and forceful swing. It was plain that the jury was favorably Impressed by the words of this man who never accepted a case unless he was absolutely sure that his client was in the right Major Bradley hinged his argument on the mysterious third shot If Dale's bullet had killed Adam Ball, would not Adam Ball have been shot squarely or at least nearly squarely from the front? As It was, the Goliath had been shot straight through the temples! That third shot had been fired by somo hidden friend of Dale's, the major and it had been done for the purpose of saving Dale's life. Ball had been In the act of playing a cowardly trick; he had killed a man in North Carolina by Just such a trick and he had boasted of it The attorney for the state made a rejoinder that almost favored the defendant Then the court charged the jury, and the twelve good men retired. The jury was out not more than twenty minutes, but to Elizabeth Littleford it was an age of torture. In e, There was no sleep for Bill Dale that The sweetness of his liberty had all been taken away by Babe Llttleford's refusal to marry him. He became bitter toward her again. She had been exceedingly unfair to him: while she really loved him, she was going to marry Jimmy Fayne because he had so mnch money. She was ungrateful to him: it was through hlro that she was being educated, being lifted out of her uncouth and illiterate self and set on a higher social and Intellectual plane. All he had ever unfathomable heard of the "mystery of womankind he now believed, and more. All this, of course, was unworthy. But Bill Dale was intensely human, and to be humen is to be unworthy. It turned cold that night A UtfJe before noon of the next day, By Hecfe stepped Into the Moreland Coal company's office. Dale looked wearily up from his littered desk. "I am very much obliged to yon for night so-call- shooting Adam Ball, By." The twelve men filed slowly In and faced the judge, who turned austere eyes upon them and asked: "Gentlemen of the jury, have you reached a verdict?" They had. Elizabeth Llttleford's head swam as she bent forward to catch the foreman's words "It's h 1, Bill, ain't it?" "What?" Heck leaned over and rested 13 knotty hands on the muzzle of the Inevitable rifle. "Whatever it is you're about, o' course. Babe Littleford she went back to yore home town this mornin, Bill.

So By Heck answered: "I wfsht 2 may drap dead this minute and turn mink with a green into a cross-eyetail and pink eyes; I wisht the devil may take me and spend ten thousand d "Not guilty!" A wild shout rose from the leathery throat of the happy By Heck. The Morelands and the Littlefords cheered until they were hoarse. Sheriff Tom Flowers had difficulty in quieting the tumult. Bill Dale shook hands until his shoulders ached. The Balls and their relatives, bitter with resentment and hatred, stole out, were given their rifles', and went toward the big hills with 'the eye of the miltia hard upon them. her well-sho- d feet arrangements we are now able to offer Courier-Jouru- al The Daily AND THE For over seventy years Adair County News Both one year, by mail, for only $6.00 Outside the city limits of Columbia 1 m sub- This offer applies to renewals as well as new subscriptions, but only to people living in Kentucky, Tennessee or Indiana.

Henderson Goff isnt here any more, but he sent me his address in The , case we wanted to sell the mine ! Torreys have gone back to Jerusalem cove and Hatton's hell, and the Balls ' are as quiet as mice. These, I believe, are all the changes worth mentioning." Together they set out and walked, without saying much, to the crest of David Moreland's mountain, and there they halted. The autumn sun, a great red ball of fire, was just setting beyond the majestic Big Pine. Dale pointed to a long, slab of brown sandstone. "Let's sit down there and rest," he suggested. "You're tired, Babe, I know. Don't mind ray calling you moss-covere- d, "Are you ready to go?" Dale asked. Elizabeth Littleford raised her head Then the Morelands and the Littlefords and the Hecks, with Dale and his mining man Hayes, came out, and they, too, started for the big hills. Dale had hired a horse and a side saddle for Ben Llttleford's daughter, and the two rode In each other's company on the journey home. "When they were well into the mountains, Dale drew his horse over close to that of his companion. "As soon as I can build and furnish " he began, when Elizabeth inter' rupted : "We're ridin' too fast We're too much ahead o' the others.

He closed his desk, and he didn't work any more that day. Babe Littleford had gone without even bothering to tell him good-by- e I his rifle gun." "Not much danger of that," Dale replied.

There hae been notice given of Mr. J. H. Barger, but as a near neighbor J feel it my duty to write a few words in respect to him and in sympathy for those to whom he was dear.

He will be missed in many ways and from many places, especially the Sunday school as he rarely missed a lesson.
