The minutes wore on,- - each side in turn working the ball to its goal only to have the chance of a goal stopped by the determined guards of each side. But Lindsay's center, Miss Ethel Gar-net-t, was also determined and made the first point of the contest by landing a field goal. This was followed by another field tossed by Miss Gladys Eraser, while Miss Malone, Campbellsville, managed to clip in one field and one foul, making the score at che end of the first half During the third quarterr Miss Zora Edna Bell with another field goal brought Lindsey 's score to 6, while Campheilsville tied it with a field from Mis3 Roberts and a foul from Miss Malone.

He was not aware before that he had even noticed these things, but now their memory dominated him, caused his pulses to quicken. He had known little of women since boyhood, and never before had he encountered on terms of intimacy this type of a wo'man. She had been a revelation to him even in his blindness, but now, under the spell of memory, she had suddenly changed to an inspiration. His wife, Olga Carlyn, his wife1! He said the words over, as though he recalled a dream, the sound of thewords causing the startled buckskin to cast back an evil eye at his unconscious rider. Yet It was actually true; impossible as it seemed, it was nevertheless an incontrovertible fact. He had never spoken to her a single word of love; he had never even kissed her, and still, before both God and man, she was his wife. The strangeness of the situation bewildered him. Why, he did not even know who she was; what right she had to claim the family name under which he had married her; what strange story of crime might shadow her history.

The trail lending down was narrow, and .and he determined to try the passage while a faint glimmer of twilight yet lingered. Leading the buckskin, and moving with the utmost caution, he began the descent. The gloom did not greatly retard his movements, for, through the glasses, he had mapped out the salient features, and so Impressed them upon his memory as to go forward now confidently. The camp fire was located In the third grove of trees, and there were no signs of human presence be tween.

They were desolate and deserted, but, from the outer fringe of the second he could perceive plainly the dull glow of the fire n hundred yards ahead. It was no longer a ilanie, but a mere glimmer of red ashes, casting no reflection about, although clearly visible. He fastened the broncovto a limb, within the circle of trees, and crouched forward alone, Winchester In hand, choosing his passage beneath the hank of the stream, and advancing with every precaution, pausing every few steps, to peer over the pro tecting bank, and thus assure himself that all remained quiet When almost exactly opposite the red glow of the coals, he lay still, endeavoring vainly to learn the situation, nnd becoming more and more puzzled. The camp appeared deserted, as though the party which had halted there had already passed on. He could1 hear no sound, see no movement. The fire had died down Into a mere glimmer of red ashes, barely perceptible amid the surrounding gloom. Shelby drew himself forward, creeping like a snake, convinced that he was alone, yet no less alert and watchful. His progress was up a shallow depression, and he had attained the deeper snaae of the trees, when, suddenly, a voice, apparently spenking not two yards distant, gave utterance to an oath of half-hou- disgust "H 11" the voice said roughly, "there Is no use waltin' for that guy any longer; no tellin' where he Is at un-fl- er by now." Shelby dropped flat on his face almost ceasing to breathe. The unseen party addressed stretched . himself lazily, as evidenced by the rustle of leaves. "I reckon ye're right Hank," he admitted slowly, his speech heavy and coarse. "No tenderfoot ain't goin' ter make that trail at night Mor'n likely he's almln' ter com' through the other way." "Whafll we do, then ride on?" "After a bit; It's early yet, an' maybe it'll do no harm to lie quiet awhile. But we kin light up, an' be com-- f fortable." He struck a match, hollowing the flame In his hands, revealing the bearded face of a man of fifty, shadowed beneath a soft hat brim. Beyond lilm appeared the obscure outline of the other, a mere smudge. A moment the two puffed away contentedly, Shelby not venturing to move a muscle. "Say, Hanley, I've allers played my hand the best I knew how, but I do like ter know what the game is I'm playin' at What do yer know, anyhow?" The other chuckled' In his benrjd, pf-th- -- hadlhardly-comprehende- rustling his feet In the leaves. "Easier ter ask about, than explain, Hank," he answeredlowly, "specially as there Is things I don't just cotton to myself. Mostly ilpulled the facts out of that Kid Macklin when he was drunk, 'cause he wanted me to help him. But it seems he's only hired fer the .Job; It's that guy we're waitln' for nothing?" "Not a thing. He was a colonel by this time, out at some frontier post, and left his baby to the care of some relatives In the East. There wasn't no fuss made, an' so Churchill sorter let affairs slide along. He had the use of the money, an' begun to think there never would be no trouble. Of course he kept a line on the husband, but lost trace of the kid entirely." "Yer mean the colonel never even know'd he'd married a rich girl?" "So It seems.

Details of the 457 American consuls now In the service of the State department are "gathering Information, extending protection, enforcing American laws and exerting American Influence" In more than 400 cities of 50 countries are set forth by Wilbur J. Carr, director of the consular service, In the 'first Issue of the American Consular Bulletin, a monthly published by the American Consular association, an unofficial and voluntary organization embracing most of the members of the consular service of the United States. "There Is probably no class of officers of the government whose functions are less correctly understood by the public than consuls," says Director ibpw Can. "To one man a consul Is merely a vlsaer of passports; to another the, .word consul signifies a glorified travel- keting of American goods In foreign lands.

There was no way he could escape observation; no possibility of hiding on that bare plain. Shelby's brain worked like lightning. There were five riders; he could count them now; Indians mostly, although one was surely white. There was nothing left him but audacity and lies. He must take the chance, the one chance, mad, desperate, yet yielding a possibility of success. He swung the field glasses to his eyes yes, one rider was white, a squat figure with a red beard, and another,, the fellow at this end, appeared to be a Mexican. Then he laughed grimly ; the vortex of his glass rested on the exposed flank of the nearest steer and he saw the brand. By all the gods, they were his own cattle! The humor of it flashed in his. eyes, but the jaw of the man set sternly. The d d thieves! He strode forward, the pony trailing at his heels, and" then the Mexican saw him, throwing up one band in a swift signal and spurring hip horse recklessly across the gray plain. They met half way, Shelby still afoot the other sweepiug up at full speed, his horse brought fairly to its haunches by the cruel pressure of a Spanish bit. The fellow was a handsome devil but for thcevil in his eyes and a disfiguring scar down one cheek. The eyes of the two met and the rider's hand dropped instnntly upon the exposed butt of a revolver.

DEHLER BROTHERS 1 CO., 16 Egst Market Street Telephone Main 2167 LOUISVILLE, KY. Roofino. Fencing, Hard' The judgment woe of this lesson fs directed against the sins of the upper classes in Samaria. The same sins are practiced in America, in the nation and in the church. With the Increase of wealth in America has come luxury, corruption and gross wickedness which staggers the imagination. It behooves nil to give a listening ear, for God will eventually enter Into judgment. Our lesson Is a temperance lesson. Temperance applies to other things than Indulgence in Intoxicating liquor. Our age is intoxicated with pleasure, pursuit of gain and selfish ambition. 1. Reckless Security (vv. They were blind to the perils that surrounded them. They were living in a fool's paradise, closing their ejes to the approaching storm of Judgment as predicted by Amos. They trusted in the mountains of Samaria for their protection. They regarded their city They no aoubt reas Impregnable. garded the utterance of Amos as impracticable the dreams of a fanatic. The tragic thing about this blindness on the part of the chief ones of the nation was they were so puffed up with pride that they failed to read the signs of the times in the light of history (v. 2.) The cities of Calneh and Hamath, though great and mighty, had fallen. To disregard the lessons of history, to dismiss the thought of impending judgment, is to bring near the "seat of violence" (v: 3). Let chaotic Europe and Russia be the red lights of warning to America, and let all Injustice and class selfishness be laid aside. II. Luxury (vv. The luxury of these upper classes In Samaria expressed Itself in : 1. Extravagant furniture (v. 4). They had beds of Ivory perhaps wood inlaid with Ivory. Costly as their furniture was hi that day, it was commonplace as compared to some of the expensive furniture and fittings in our great cities. 2. Laziness (v. 4). They stretched themselves upon their couches lived lives of indolence. Such is the way of many still. 3. Feasted on delicacies (v. 4). The implication here Is that they had their dainties out of season. Tills Is what many of the rich pride themselves in. 4. Adorn their feasts with music (v. 5). They sang idle songs even invented musical Instruments for this purpose. They prostituted the noble art of music to their sensual feasts. 5. They drank wine (v. G). They were not content with ordinary drinking vessels. They, drank from howls, indicating excessive drinking. They were so mastered by the Intoxicating cup that their feasts which were adorned with the refinements of music ended in drunkenness. III. Failure to Grieve for Joseph (v. 6). Joseph here stands for Ephraim and Manasseh, his two sons. Eph" raim became the principal tribe of the northern kingdom, so Joseph is used as a' synonym for the nation. The upper classes were indulging in these effeminate luxuries, entirely indifferent to the groanings of the masses. And whenever such a condition exist in a nation there Is need of Amos to thunfler God's judgment upon those who are guilty of it. IV. The Inevitable Issue (w. 7,8). 1. They shall go into captivity (v. 7). The northern nation was first in sin, therefore first to go Into captivity. What a striking contrast this picture! Instead of lying on ivory couches feasting upon dainties, they are "with the suffering exiles. 2. The certainty of the issue (v. 8). It is inevitable because of God's nature. He is a God of justice. He has sworn tliat judgment shall fall. He Is the God of hosts the controller of the whole universe, therefore none can escape., God hates the wickedness of the world, and He will bring into judgment the men and women who revel in luxury with no concern for the poor and" needy. Though- God waits long, He does not forget. The only escape for America is repentance. ). ). The best augury that all the treaties negotiated at the Washington Conference will he ratified with few dissenting votes and without great elapse of time is the failure of the irreconcilable opponents to enlist public support. The second best argument is that the irreconcilables are divided among themselves. Within a short time all the treaties will he before the Senate for ratification, ;is .the Chinese treaties, the only ones still before the committee, are to be taken up. The opposition to their ratification will be led by Senator William E. Borah, Idaho, Republican, but he will have fewer followers than in his fight against the treaty. When the treaties come before the Senate, which, It appears, will be this week, the final test of the public's attitude toward them will be disclosed. Every Senator realizes that the short fight against the treaty elicited- virtually no public support; that, instead, abuse and ridicule were heaped upon the irreconcilables ; that the country wishes the treaties to be ratified quickly. This is not a matter of opinion. It is a fact supported in newspaper editorials everywhere and by tons of mail poured into the offices of the Senators. The irreconcilables, of course, are not being condemned exclusively for they have a large following throughout the country. But their support is meager and except for few instances is diffident and unenthusiastle. So far as those with their ears to the ground now can determine the irreconcilable fight against these treaties has failed to excite a ripple of enthusiasm. Instead, the public, described as "tired of the Senate," is bemoaning the insertion of reservations, characterizing the Senators who propose them as "old maids with shears," and la demanding action.
