But before we could determine anything more than that the mouth of the shaft was completely hidden under a mass of wreckage. and that the mysterious Niagara roar, dwindled somewhat, but yet hollowly audible, was still going on under the concealing mass of broken timbers there was a masterful and sheet-irointerruption. Shots, yells, shoutings and hot curses told us that a. fierce battle of some kind was staging itself just outside of our wrecked fortress; whereupon Daddy Hiram began pawing his way to the door, yelling like a man suddenly gone dotty. "That there's old Ike Beasley e his old hide!" he cliittered. "There ain't nary 'nother man in the Timanyonis 'at can cuss like that. He's come with a posse, and they're layin' out Charley Bullerton's crowd!" There was a fine little tableau , spreading itself out for us when we ' had clambered over the wreckage and ihad withdrawn the wooden bar and flung the door wide. Daddy Hiram had called the turn and named the trump.

And Beasley, himself, square-jawe- d and peremptory, was shoving Bullerton up against the side of the shaft-houssnapping the irons upon his wrists and counseling him, with choice epithets intermingled, to save up his troubles and tell them to the judge. As we emerged from our wrecked fortress, other members of the posse were scattering to round up the outlying who had apparently taken to the tall timber in a e n, dad-blam- If there, had been a dozen of the bombs raining down I don't believe the threat of them would have kept g ta-'ftt- hard-boile- e, bomb-thrower- s, effort to escape. Down on the bench below there were horses and and among the horses one whose rider was just slipping from the saddle. "While I was wondering vaguely why the Angels town marshal had let a .mere boy come along on such a battle errand, the boyish figure ran up the road and darted in among us to fling itself into Daddy Hiram's arms, gurgling and half crying and begging to be told if he was hurt. I didn't know at the time how much or how little the big marshal knew of the various and muddled involvements (Which were climaxing right there in the early morning sunshine on the old Cinnabar dump head; but I do know that he quickly turned his captures over to some of his deputies and had them promptly hustled down stage and off scene. While this was going .on I was merely waiting for my cue, .and I got it, or thought I got it when the boy who wasn't a boy slipped from Daddy's arms and faced me. "I'm not hurt, either," I ventured to say, hoping that the brain storm had subsided sufficiently to make me visible. "Welcome home, Miss Twom-bl- y or should I say Mrs. Bullerton?" The look she gave me was just plain deadly; you wouldn't think that violet-blue eyes could do it, but they can. Then she drew a folded paper from somewhere inside of her clothes and held it out to me. "There is the deed to your mine, He. Broughton," she said nipplngly, and with a fairly tragical emphasis on the courtesy title. "Yon wouldn't take the trouble to go to Copah and get it recorded, so I thought I'd better do it.

But with the branch railroad built to its very door, its value would be doubled.

He offered to buy it outright for monej, or give in exchange a better one. Ahab's wish for it was a selfish whim. He did not at all need It. 3. Naboth's refusal (v. 3). It was for a twofold reason: (1) regard for the paternal estate; (2) obedience to cf. Num. 3G: God's law (Lev. L3:23-2S- , His refusal was on conscientious grounds. A king, even, has no right to a.sk of his subject that he violate his conscience. 4. Ahab's behavior (v. 4). He came intd his house, lay down upon his bed and refused to eat. The king was sulking like a spoiled child. This Is a picture of what a fool even a king, may make of himself. Let us learn that "godliness with contentment Is great gain" (I Tim. 0:6). 0.

If Ahab was too weak to be king, she would rule for him. (4) Her wicked She wrote letters scheme (vv. In Ahab's name, sealed them with his seal and sent them to the elders and nobles who were dwelling In the city with Naboth, asking them to proclaim a fast, as though some great calamity had befallen the nation, and place Naboth before the public as the one who was the cause of It all. They were instructed to find two false witnesses who would testify against Naboth. The charge they brought according to the wicked device of Jezebel was blasphemy against God and the king. Naboth's only offense was his refusal to sell his estate, contrary to the law of God. When they had stoned to death Naboth and his sons (n Kings 9:26), they came and told Jezebel, who in turn came to Ahab with the Information and directed him to take possession of the vineyard. 2.

This son of Illinois is ' one of the most prolific and successful of American writers. Aided by a fertile imagination, his own career and experiences have furnished plots in 'abundance. Educated for the law, he has been plainsman, prospector, miner, country editor, city reporter and novelist, and has also taken a dip into commercial waters. Many kinds of life are depicted in his books, but he doubtless shows to best advantage in stories of the West. You are sure to like his "Comrades of Peril," a true western narrative which soon will be reproduced serially in these columns.

For example, on net income of $5,010, the tax, without the saving clause, would be $120.40, 4 per cent on $3,010, the amount of net income less an exemption of $2,000. The actual tax is $110.40 computed as follows: from the net income is deducted $2,500, leaving $2,510, the 4 per cent tax on which amounts to $100.50. To this added $10, "the amount of net income in excess of $5,000." The personal exemptions allowed married persons, apply also to the head of a family, a person who supports in one household one or more relatives by blood, marriage or adoption. Heretofore, a person whose net income was less than his exemp tion ($1,000 if single, or $2,000 if married) was not required to file a return. Under the Revenue Act of 921, if the gross income of an individual equalled or exceeded $$,000 or if the gross income of an individual equalled or exceeded $5000 or if the combined gross income of a married couple and that of dependent minor chil. dren equalled or exceeded $5,000 a return must be filed, regardless of the amount of net income. "Net income" is gross income, less certain deductions. The fact that allowable deductions from gross income, for business expenses, losses and bad debts, etc. may reduce the net income to an amount below the personal exemptions of $1,000 or $2,000, does not alter the requirement to file a return gross income, if gross income equalled or exceeded dis-portionate Fairplay. $2,-00- Our merchants are enjoyfug si very good trade at present; un Some of our farmers have- plowing, some are clearacx some are burning plant hscSv.. and some are sitting around) ihis store whittling pine boxes.
