He asks Rainey to lead him aboard, and Rainey does so. In the cabin they find Captain Simms and a man named Carlsen. Slmms recognizes the blind man, calling him Jim Lund. Lund accuses Slmms of abandoning him, blind on an ice floe, and denounces him for what he calls his ingratitude Simms denies the charge, but Lund refuses to pacified.

Carlsen informs him he has been kidnapefl because, having learned the object of 'the expedition, he might have divulged it and frustrated the plans of the voyagers. He offers Rainey a share of the gold, and .Rainey, seeing nothing else to be done, declares himself satisfied.

"Well?" asked Lund, "what are you , goin' to do about it, Kainey? Stick with me, or line up with the rest of 'em, work yore paipie, an' thank 'em for nothing when they divvy the stuff an' leave you out?" "You havn't said outright what you are going to do yourself," replied Kainey. "As for me, I seem to be between the devil and the deep sea. Carlsen has got some plan to outwit the men. It's inconcei able that he'll be willing to give them equal shares. And lie has no use for me." "You haven't said outright what you of his before he did," said Lund. "He'll put you out of the way If he can, but, now his temper's bi'Ied over a bit, he'll not shoot you. Not afore the gold's in the hold. "As for me," he went on, his voice deepening, "I found this gold, an they didn't. I don't have to divvy with 'em, an I won't.

This was not bragging, not blustering, but calm assurance, and Itainey felt that Lund merely stated what he believed to be facts. And Kainey they were facts.

Some of them believe that the number may reach 1,500,000 by New Year's. The philosophers of the Government bureaus sa they don't understand the great rush for the yoke. This country lost few men during the war and this is a period of deflation, therefore the wise men cannot find a socfal or economic solution of the puzzle. The trouble with is the statistician-philosopher- s that they look too far. They should inspect the simple, homely things of life. For example, there are the motion pictures. John has been taking Gladys to see them every week for a couple of years. He is chaplined, fairbanksed and hartedto death. How can he sidestep? Well he has heard that one of the preogatives of married men is to refuse, on the mere ground of weariness, to go .to the theatre. So he proposes. There is the motor car. Few single men buy passenger cars. They have no excuse, no home with a garage, no patient companion to listen to longwinded discourses on carburetor diseases. It is net proper to take a trip with-th- e fiance on a week-en- d family accompaniment. The yearning for a car results in buyr ing a diamond. There is prohibition.

I can barely find his pulse, but his breath shows on this." The big man stepped like a great cat, his head was thrust slightly forward, his great hands were half open. One forgot his blindness. Despite the unsightly black lenses, Lund appeared absolutely prepared and, In a different way, fully as confident as Carlsen. A certain audacious assurance seemed to ooze out of him, to permeate his neighborhood, and a measure of It extended to Ralney. Carlsen, before he went below, had sent a man Into the and now he shouted, cupping his hands and sounding his news as If It had been a call to arms: fore-spreade- She produced a small mirror, little larger than a dollar, and held it before her father's lips. When she took it away Rainey saw a trace of moisture. "Carlsen cannot rouse him?" he asked. C , r "Land-h- o !" "What Is It?" called Ralney back. "High peak, sir. Dead ahead I Clouds on It, or smoke." He came sliding down the halyards to the deck as Lund said: "That'll be Makushln. Now the fun'U commence." From below the sailors off watch came up on deck, and the hunters, the latter wiping their mouths, fresh from their Interrupted breakfast, all crowding forward to get a glimpse of the land. Minutes passed before Carlsen came on deck. He had not hurried his meal. T11 briefly. take her over, Ralney," he said Ralney and Lund were barely seated before the heeling of the schooner and the scuffle of feet told of Lund's prophesied change of course. Ralney looked at the telltale compass above his head. "Heading due west," he told Lund. "West It Is," said the giant. "More coffee, Tamada. Fill your belly, Ralney. Get a good meal while the eatln' is good." low, Ralney found him at the wheel instead of the seaman he had left there. Carlsen came up to him smiling. "Better let Hansen have the deck, Mr. Ralney," he said. "We're going to have a eonference In the cabin at four bells, and Td like you to he present." "All right, sir," Ralney answered, Although It was Hansen's watch be- getting a thrill at this first actual intimation of the meeting. Hansen, It seemed, was not to be one of the rep resentatives of the seamen. And ' Carlsen had been smart enough to ' forestall Lund's demand for Ralney by j taking some of the wind out of the giant's sails and doine the unemected. ' Unless the hunters had suggested that Ralney be present. But that was hardly likely, considering that he was to be left out of the deal. "In just what capacity are you call-ithis conference?" Lund asked, when Carlsen notified him In turn. "The skipper ain't dead, is he?" "I represent the captain, Lund," replied the doctor. 'He entirely ap- proves of what I am about to suggest ' to you and the men. In fact I have hl& j signature to a document that I hope you will sign also. It will be greatly to your Interest to do so. I am in present charge of the Karluk." "You ain't a reg'lar member of this expedition," objected Lund stolidly. "Neither am I a member of the crew, just now. But the skipper's my partner in this deal, signed, sealed and recorded. Afore I go to enny meetin' I'd like to have a talk with him personally. Tnet's fair enough, ain't it?" Several of the hunters had gathered about, and Lund's question seemed a general appeal. Carlsen shrugged his shoulders. "If you had your eyesight," he said almost brutally, "you could soon see that the skipper was in no condition to discuss matters, much less be pres- - j , n' certain. He talks of perverted nerve functions, and he has obtained a tremendous influence over father. "You heard what he said when the night he tried to shoot you? You see, I am trusting you in all this, Mr. Rainey. I must trust some one. If I don't I can't stand it. I think I shall go mad, sometimes. The doctor has changed. It Is as If he was a dual personality like Jekyll and Hyde and now he Is always Hyde. He said last night that he could save father or or that he would let father die. I told him it was sheer murder! He laughed. He said he would save him for a price." She stopped, and Ralney supplied the gap, sure that he was right. "If you would marry him?" The girl nodded. "Father will do anything he tells him. I sometimes think he tortures father and only relieves him when father promises what he wants. Otherwise I could not understand. Last night father asked me to do this thing. He told me he looked upon the doctor as a son, that It woujd make him happy for me to marry him now. That he would perform the ceremony. That he did not think he would live long and he wanted to see me with a protector. "It was horrible. What shall I do?" "Miss SImms," said Ralney, "your father Is not In his right mind or he would see Carlsen as you do, as I do. Carlsen's 'brain is turned with the lure of the gold. If he marries you, I believe it is only for your share, for what you will get from your father. It cannot be right to do a wrong thins:. No good could come from It. But something may happen this morning I cannot tell you what. I do not know, except that Lund Is to face Carlsen. It may change matters." "Lund," she said scornfully. "What can he do?

As for yore standln' as his doctor, all I've got to say is that yo're a d d pore doctor, so fur as the skipper's concerned, ennyway." The two men stood facing each other, Carlsen looking evilly at the giant, whose black glasses warded off his glance. It was wasting looks to glare at a blind man. Equally to sneer. But the bout between the two was timed now, and both were casting aside any veneer of diplomacy, their enmity manifesting itself in the raw. The issue was growing tene. itainey fancied that Carlsen was not entirely sure of his following, "and re- lied upon Lund's indignant refusal of terms to back up his plans of getting rid of him decisively. I ; ; , Rainey?" Ruiney went on deck, raging but impotent. He told Lund briefly of the talk between him and Peggy SJatns. und de&cribed the general symptoms of the skipper's strange malady. It was nine o'clock, an hour to the meeting. He weut down to his own room and sat on the bunk, smoking, trying to piece up the puzzle. If Carlsen was a potential murderer. If he intended to let Simms die, why should he want to marry the girl? He thought he solved 'hat issue. As his wife Carlsen would retain her .hare. If he gave her up, it would go into the common purse. But, If he expected to trick the men out of it all, that would be unnecessary. Did he really love the girl? Or was his lust ior gold mingled with a passion for possession of her? He might know hat the girl would kill herself before she would submit to dishonor. Perhaps he knew she had the means! One thing became paramount to Mive Peggy Simms. Lund might fight for the gold; Rainey would battle for ihe girl's banctity. And, armed with ihat resolve, Rainey went out into the main cabin. Carlsen took the head of the table. Lund faced him at the other end. AH ix of the hunters, as privileged characters, were present, but only three of the seamen, awkward and diffident at being aft. The nine, with Rainey, ranged themselves on either side of the table, five and five, with Rainey on Lund's right. The girl was not present. Yet her share was au impor-- i i i i i i at living prices.

"Will you do that, Rainey? Now?" And Ralney had a fleeting fancy that the giant winked one of his blind eyes at him, though the black lenses were deceiving. He went below Immediately and rapped on the door, a little surprised to see the girl appear in the opening. The drawn expression of her face, the strained,, faint smile with which she greeted him, the hppeless look in her eyes, startled him. "I wanted to see .your father," he said in a low voice. She told him to enter. "He Is in a stupor," she said. "He ."has been that way since last night, fol tant factor. Lund sat with folded arms, his great body relaxed. Now that the table was set, the cards all dealt, and the first play about to be made, the tfant bhed his tenseness. Eyen his grim face softened a trifle. He seemed to regard the affair with a certain amount of humor, coupled with the zest of a gambler who loves the game whether the stakes are for death or dollars. Carlsen had a paper under his hand, but deferred its reading until he had addressed the meeting. "A ship," he said, "is a little community, a world in Itself. To its safety every member Is a necessity, the lookout as much as the man at the wheel, the common seaman, the navigator. And, when a ship is engaged In a certain calling, those who are hired as experts in that line are equally essential with the rest. Each man's responsibility being equal, his reward should be also equal. "Payment for all services comes on this voyage from an uncertain amount of gold that Nature, mother of us all, and therefore intending that all her children shall share her heritage, has washed up on a beach from some deep-se- a vein and thus deposited upon an uncharted, unclaimed Island. It is discovered by an Indian, the discovery is handed on to another." "Meanin me." Lund seemed to be enjoying himself. Despite the fact that Carlsen was presiding and most evidently assumed the attributes of leader, despite the fact that ten of the welve at the table were arrayed against him, with the rest of the seamen behind them, Lund was decided ly enjoying himself.

About one week before his illness, the writer, (who lives about 150 yards from him) sat and listened to him sing some of his favorite songs, two of which were, "Will there be any Stars," and "There'll be no dark valley," and it was wonderful to hear a man of his age sing with such a rich, clear voice.

He stood up himself, towering above the rest as they rose from their chairs, tearing the black glasses from his eyes and flinging them at Carlsen, who was forced to throw up a hand to ward them off.

Lund had folded his arms above his great chest. He laughed again, and his arms opened. In an instant Rainey caught the object of Lund's speechmaklng.. He had done it to enrage Carlsen beyond endurance, to make him draw his gun. Giant as he was, he moved with the grace of a panther, wit& a swiftness too fast for the eye to register. Something flashed in his right hand, a gun. that lie had drawn from a bolster slung over his left breast. The shots blended. Lund stood there erect, uninjured. A red blotch showed betwetn Carlsen's eyes. He slumped down into his chair, his arms clubbing the table, his gun falling from Ills, nerveless hand, his forehead striking the wood like the sound of a auctioneer's gavel. Lund had beaten him to the draw. Lund, no longer a blind Samson, with contempt in his agate eyes, surveyed the scattering group o men who stared at the dead man dully, as if gripped by the exhibition of a miracle. "It's all right. Miss SImms," he said. "Jest killed a skunk. Rainey, git that gun an' attend to the young lady, will you?" The girl stood in the doorway of her father's cabin, her face frozen to horror, her eyes fixed on Lund with repulsion. As Rainey got the automatic, slipped it into his pocket, and went toward her, she shrank from him. But her voice was for Lund. "You murderer!" she cried. Lund grinned at her, but there was no laughter In his eyes. "We'll thrash that out later, miss," he said. "Now, you men, jump for'ard, all of you. Deming, unlock that door. Jump! Equals, are you? I'll show you who's master on this ship. Wait!" His voice snapped like the crack of a whip and they all halted, save Deming, who sullenly fitted the key to the lock of th6 corridor entrance. "Take this with you," said Lund, pointing to Carlsen's sagging body. "When you git tired of his company, throw him overboard. Jump to it!" The nearest men took up the body of the doctor and they all filed forward, silently obedient to the man who ordered them. The girl shuddered. Rainey saw that Lund was exhilarated by his victory, that the primitive fighting brute was prominent. Carlsen had tried to shoot first, goaded to it; his death was deserved ; but It seemed to Rainey was unnecessary. But he also saw that Lund would not heed any protest that he might make, he was still swept on by his course of action, not yet complete. Til borrow Carlsen's sextant," said Lund.

It came into being as a result of the dire necessity of more and better blooded horses for the United States Arm-- . Thus, with kindred organizations, It is promoting one of the most Important undertakings looking toward our future security. The object of the Remount Asocla-tio- n is the improvement of general-purpos- e horse conditions in every State in the Union; and because of the Importance of the work entailed. Col. F. S. Armstrong, of the United States Army, has been placed in charge, with headquarters In Washington, D. C, where his department Is in close touch with every other governmental agency. The Remount Associaof others tion, with the similarly engaged, has, during the eighteen months of Its existence, succeeded in getting one ihundred and sixty-fou- r of stallions eighty-fiv- e which were donated by patriotic organizations and individuals for distribution throughout the country, to be utilized by farmers desirous o raising the standard of their horses. ,In laying out the work, it was decided to profit 'by the experience of foreign governments and locate thoroughbred sires in every grazing community of the country. The whole was divided into zones, and a plan of breeding, to the Interest of the farmers of America, inaugurated. Recent reports from the Association's headquarters in Washington show that there has mares for been an average of fifty-fiv- e each stallion, although the breeding Beason is not yet concluded. Also, at a meeting of the Association, it was sbTown that there was a demand for some seven hundred horses last Spring,- - and that, for the coming Spring, this demand will be doubled or even trebled. Both the race courses and the thoroughbred nurseries constantly are being drawn upon for horses of proven courage in the acid test of racing. It remains for them to produce the only type that measures up to the standard destined to supply the United State cavalry remounts worthy of the men in the service. It may be added that, owing to tho broad plan of fostering the industry of horse breeding as practiced fot generations by the British, French and Italian Governments, these countriea were in the enviable position of ability to supply their armies with good mounts, whereas, America, which had never introduced such a system was obliged to draw upon the resource!

Mr. Pierce predicts that Cumberland county within two years will be leading all other sections of the State in oil production. The oil found in Cumberland County is of a superior grade and working conditions and land titles so far ahead of other sections where oil is found, he says, which will be attractive to operators. The McClintock Oil Syndicate, of which Mr. Pierce is a member, rsay that by laying a pipe line to Somerset, on the Southern Ry, and building a refinery there, the Cumberland- County production will be classed with Pennsylvania grade crude which is now selling at $4.00 per barrel, against $2.65 the present price of Somerset light. It take3 such men as Pierce to develop an oil field. He has the ability, push and confidence of the real financiers. He is .one of the greatest organizers of the State and his judgment as well as his foresight has proven him a man of real conceptive ability. - ThomFormer Revenue from Breeding Thoroughas Marshall is picked by some bred Horses Only Profit to Be politicians as the Democratic Depended Upon. leader in 1924.
