He was surprised at the number, never having supposed that this colony of outlaws was so numerous. Another thing, while he could not clearly distinguish such small objects at that distance, the majority of these riders had the appearance of being Indians. Could they be Sioux warriors gathered here in preparation for some raid on the exposed settlements? or was it possible that the troops had already struck, and driven the remnants of scattered war parties into this Hole for refuge? In either case their presence in such numbers rendered his own position so much snore precarious, and Increased the danger surrounding Olga. He felt that, in spite of his pledge to the Mexican girl, he could not remain in his hiding place quietly, without endeavoring to learn more of what had actually occurred during the night. Indeed he could perceive no reason why he should remain entirely inactive. At the very best she could accomplish nothing before night, and had held out very little hope for even then. There were no signs that he was being sought after down below. It might be that In the excitement of other happenings, his escape had been considered as of minor importance; that Indian Joe, convinced that" he could never get out of the Hole unobserved, took no immediate interest in trailing him. What was the use, when he must eventually surrender? It would be a simple matter to steal cautiously down through that deep cleft in the rocks, as far, at least, as the stream below. He would be concealed all the way, and once there, hidden securely among those thick bushes, he might then learn what was actually occurring. It would be far better for him to know. Besides, tills would be no disloyalty to Pancha; even if she sought him he would still be In the path she must follow, and, so long as he remained undiscovered, just where he was concealed could make no possible difference.

He studied these signs Intently, yet discerned nothing resembling a woman's shoe. The moccasin-sho- d feet, however, had passed over the ground again and again, and he even believed, one, and perhaps more, of the wearers had sat on the doorstep Impatiently stamping their feet To his judgment the place had indeed been under guard, and that recently the marks were comparatively fresh and cleancut, as though made within a few hours. Then, in all probability, this had been the prison where his wife was held. He had stumbled upon it Here, undoubtedly, was the very spot where she had been confined under guard during the past night, yet she certainly was not there now. The deserted appearance of the place was proof positive that she had been taken elsewhere. Voices sounded off toward the broader expanse of valley, but too far away to present danger; even as he stood cautiously up, and looked out over the tops of the weeds he could see nothing to create alarm. He was alone, unseen, unsuspected, and yielded to the desire to learn what was within the hut She might have left some message, some sign of her presence, which would prove a clue. The outer door was secured merely bv a wooden latch, and opened easilv to his touch. Afraid lest some eye might mark his movements. Shelby glided quickly in through the narrow opening, and Instantly pressed the door shut behind him. He was in almost total darkness, the only light finding entrance between the boards at the single window. He felt his way blindly across the room, guided by this dim ray, and, discovering one of the boards somewhat loosened, managed to wrench It free, thus permitting the gray daylight to gain entrance. This gave him a dim view of the interior, a nearly square room, inexpressibly dirty, and without furniture, except a rough bench thrust back against one wall. Straight across from where lie stood some black object lay upon the floor, so indistinct in its outlines he could not, In that faint light, determine what it might be a pile of rags, perhaps, or a shapeless heap of rubbish. He stepped forward, curious to learn its nature, yet stopped suddenly, staring down in speechless horror. He was beside the bodies of two men. both an-kno- slinking cur, knowing of Macklin's absence, to carry out some foul object of his own. The ranchman drew in a long breath, and stood up. The silence and gloom oppressed him, as his eyes once more swept about the dismal apartment It was surely a fit abode for murder, but the sight of those two dead bodies interlocked on the floor was more than he could bear. Obeying the first impulse he dragged them, still gripping each other, across thp floor, and thrust them under the bench, flinging over them the folds of a tattered blanket. But what of her Olga? Surely no one could have been here since these two men fought? Otherwise their bodies would have been found, and cared for. It must be that Macklin had not yet returned, and that Ilanley knew nothing of Slagin's desperate venture. Then the girl must still be confined in the house, helpless to escape and guarded by these dead men. The thought sent the blood surging into Shelby's throat, and his eager eyes sought the only door opening through the side wall. It was tightly closed and secured by a strong bar of wood. He picked up the revolver from the floor, and went swiftly forward, prepared to face whatever might be revealed beyond. The bar fitted snugly, yet he forced it free of the clasps, and pushed the door open with his knee, watchfully peering into the darkness behind. He saw nothing, no flutter of movement no evidence that the place was occupied. In spite of daylight without, the room, with Its shuttered windows, remained black. His heart almost ceased to beat, yet he advanced into the room, flinging the door wide open behind him. This admitted sufficient light to enable him to dimly make out his surroundings a couch, covered with a bearskin, a rudely made chair, a bucket of water in one corner, and a faintly revealed figure against the further wall. "Olga!" he exclaimed, "Olga!" She moved, leaning forward eagerly. "Who are you? Who calls me?" "It is you, then?" he sprang forward. "Don't be afraid; I am Shelby!" "Shelby you! Tom O Shelby! God ! this Is not a dream?" "No, no! I am just as real as you are. See; touch me. You thought I was dead?" Her hands were in his own; her eyes, still Incredulous, searching his face in the dim light. "Dead--yeThey told me so; an Indian said he had crushed In your skull. He boasted of it; and when I asked that Macklin, he only laughed, when he said it was so." "Laughed, how?" "He he didn't seem to think it could make much difference to me; that I would care." "But do you know who he is? Did lie tell you? Did the fellow explain his purpose In this outrage?" "I do not know; he had no time, no opportunity; we were never alone. What do you mean? Was this all done for some deliberate purpose?" "Yes, it was, Olga. His name Is not Macklin at all; it Is probably Churchill have you ever heard that name bes! MPXOVED UNIFORM OOXXNATIONAl s , Res. Phoxe I3-- B. Business Phone 13-- A SundaySchool T (By KKV. P. B.

He not only had the handicap of the Idolatry and ImColumbia, Ky mortality fostered by the two former kings, but he had to contend against the influence of his mother who had encouraged immoral worship (I Kings 15:13). In order to carry out his reformatory measures he had ro wrest authority from her by deposing her. Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the Lord (v. 2). 1. Cleared the land of idolatrous emblems and images (vv. 3, 5). (1) Strange altars. These were the altars (2) High devoted to other gods. places.

"Yes ; she never knew this while she lived, but your father learned some of the facts after her death, and endeavored to verify them. His search was what started trouble; for your mule, the trustee his name is Cornelius Churchill had made no effort to locate the heir to the property left In his care. Instead he had used the money, believing himself perfectly safe. When he learned of your father's suspicions, he became frightened." "Can this be true?" "It evidently is true, strange as it seems. Then your father was killed, perhaps through some row engineered by Churchill to put him out of the way, and they made every effort to find you. You alone stood between them and this wealth. Fortunately you could not Immediately be located; you had been bidden away in a Catholic school, and, before Church-Il- l succeeded In discovering what school you were at.

"But why did he never tell me all Built fortified cities (v. 6). The cities are not named, but the meaning, doubtless, is that It was a general system of defense which involved the cities at strategic points. 2. He erected walls about the cities (v. 7). These were usually of stone. Upon the walls were observation towers from which the position and movements of the enemy could be seen, and from which defensive warfare could be waged. 3. Made gates and barred them (v. 7). The reason he assigns for these defensive preparations was that they had sought the Lord God. Those who really trust God will make every effort to provide defense. 4. Had an army of spearmen (v. S). These spearmen were also protected with large shields. The army was made up of 480,000 brave men. They were prepared to wage an offensive as well as a defensive war. III. Asa's Victory Over Zerah, the 1. (w. 6-8- ).

The view below was like that of a distant picture, its details indistinct lie felt no longer any special fear of being observed, however, and leaned far enough forward to see clearly up and down the broad xalley. His position lay somewhat removed, around the angle of a side ravine, so that be could not trace the entire course of the Cottonwood, or even discern the waterfall beneath which he had entered the Hole. Yet he had a glimpse of the main stream, could, pick out what he believed to be the log house from which he bad escaped, whHe,..wIthrn narrow self over the bank, crouching knee deep in the cold stream, safely under cover. Thus protected he waded slowly downward. He saw no evidence of any guard, and became convinced the cabin also was deserted; that if this was actually the place where Olga had been confined on arrival, she had since been removed elsewhere. As he drew nearer the place appeared old, rather dilapidated and long deserted, a shack scarcely fit for human habitation any longer. The one window was boarded up, and the patched roof of the lean-t- o sagged dismally. This was certainly not the place; no one apparently had lived there for many a year. Still, now he had ventured so much, it might be well to take a look inside. Assuredly no harm could be done by his searching the rooms, and this would require only a moment or two. He drew himself up Into the weeds, and wiggled his way forward until he obtained a full view of the door. It was tightly closed, but unguarded without Indeed his search revealed no sign that the hut had been visited for months, until he came within a yard or two of the long step before the entrance; then he suddenly encountered footprints in the softer ground, and was able to distinguish where some one more than one. lie be scarcely dIst!ogishahlQappeared the roof of another, smaller building.

Beyond on the floor lay a revolver and a knife. Shelby stared at the gruesome scene, unable to remove bis gaze. In the dim light the features of the two men What were almost unrecognizable. had caused this tragedy? this fierce death grapple? He could only conjecture from what little he knew of the circumstances. Beyond doubt one of these antagonists would be the guard whom Macklin had left to watch over his captive while he departed. But the other? Some one who sought entrance probably; some one endeavoring to reach the woman, either inspired by good or evil intent Yet which was the guard? which the invader? Those who had accompanied the Kid at the ranch were all Indians, and It was therefore most likely that a savage had been left to watch over the girl. Then it was the white man who thus sought to reach her. For what purpose? Shelby bent down and peered inquiringly into the agonized face of the dead white man. The features were discolored, distorted from the agony in which he bad died, the lips drawn back, disclosing a grinning row of teeth. The face scarcely appeared human, "and yet was vaguely familiar. He had seen it once before, revealed in the glare of a match, and the recollection came back haunting him-pt- he fellow was Slagin. nanley's partner. Then be had come there for no good! nad come there in the night like a legal advice. Then, you know, his death was very sudden." "Did he kill himself?" "I do not think so now. That was the story In Ponca. but it is my belief he was murdered. You had finally been traced; the man who had succeeded in finding your trail was in Ponca. Calkins had to be put out of the way." "You mean Macklin?" "Yes; only, as I say, that Is prob- this?" "1 cannot answer that; no doubt he thought it best ; believed the time had not come. I understand he acted under Ethiopian (vv. 1.

The first requisite in obtaining help from God is conscious weakness. The Christian conquers not by but by and faitli in God. (2) Appeals to God for help. He knew that though they were helpless before the mighty enemy, with God's help they could win the victory. One man with God is a majority. (3) Reposes faith in God. The word "rest" means to lean upon to cast the entire weight upon. In the measure that we realize our need of support will we lean hard upon God. (4) Advanced courageously.

The Columbia Brass band furnished the music for the occasion.

Do the children "bother her to death" every day, and do the ordinary household tasks that she formerly performed with ease seem now to overtax her? In other words, do you often come home to a house of trouble instead of a house of joy and happiness? If your answer is "yes" to these pointed questions, don't blame your your wife until she has taken Gude's with her meals for a n few weeks. She is simply and nervous and needs the kind of iron that, she will get in Gude's to give her more vitality and strength.

If they do, their voice remains unheard by the great majority of the people, who are practically agreed that h has been a year of wasted and misspent time, and that the people who voted Harding into the White House have not even "had a run for their money." To hear the voice of these wonderful but united accomplishments, the ear of the public would have to be equipped with Mr. Edison's new invention, which is said to be so capable of multiplying sound that it can hear a molecule when it turns over for another nap. The President may have thought the list of achievements so tedious that he had no time to enumerate every blessing flowing forth to gladden the happy and prosperous toilers who make the welkin ring with their shouts of approval as they cast their sweaty caps in air. Or could it be that the list is like the short and simple annals of the poor and would remind the public that the administration haB been trying to dip away with a teaspoon the ocean of our difficulties?

Germany is again meeting her reparations payments. It must be galling to a million or two of German democrats, who helped put Harding in the White House, to realize that it was Secretary Hughes' imperative note to Germany, just after Harding that settled was inaugurated, Germany's fate in this respect. The Government of Germany, s knwing how much had done toward the election of Harding, delayed and stalled in every possible way until Harding reached the White House, depending on his moral support to weaken and break down the demands of the Allies for settlement. Hughes spoke on May 3, 1921, saying: "This Government strongly urges the g, d lens-paralys- is al getting some better, but the coal miners strike the first of April will cripple business. Ter-r-e Haute is in the midst of a large coal field. Some ten or twelve thousand miners in Vigo county. As you sit in easy comfort and watch the coal fire blaze and glow in the grate, do you ever wonder how the men live and work who burrow into the earth that you shall be warm? Here's a description of a descent into a mine and of what was found there. With a great coal strike threatened it will interest you. Two hundred feet below the surface of the earth and two and a quarter miles from the nearest outlet. A stygian darkness, broken only by the fitful gleam ll German-American- of the miner's lamp. Long narrow tunnels, with a broken, uncertain roof here and there, supported by timber, under which one waiKea witn bent back. Now and then a dull, reverberating rumble. These were the surroundings in which I found 300 miners wrestling a bare living out of the ground. Some were crouched down, boring holes into solid wall aheaed of them. Some were placing powder in these holes. Some were loading coal into low cars. Some were hopping in and out between these cars as they were being drawn along narrow rails by One reason the nine miles. miners are resisting a cut in their pay ordered by the operators is that their work is both strenuous and dangerous. After seeing them work I' can say it is both. As I watched them the thought crossed mymind: Suphappened a pose something cave in, a gas explosion, a fire. Before help could be brought that distance all would probably be over for the men trapped. Guided by the superintendent, I stepped on the elevator at the main shaft used for both men and coal, and down we shot with such speed into black night for about 210 feet. About" 20 men were at the bottom of the ered. I was wringing wet when we arrived, though the tempera ture was only 68 and ventilation excellent. Each miner had a "room" or pocket to himself to work in. The wall between the rooms and tunnels were solid coal, left standing as roofs sun ports. The miner daily bores three horizontal holes into the end wall of his room. These holes are filled with gunpowder. After 4:30; when all the miners are above ground, the "shooters" rode down and set off the Bhots, This is considered the most dangerous work in mining. The coal is blasted into the room, the force of the explosion having no other outlet. The next day the miner sorts out the coal rids it of impurities, such as slate and rock, loads it into the cars and bores three more holes. Mules draw the loaded cars out of the rooms to an assembling place, where they are picked up by the motor and dawn to the shaft. The miners earnings depend entirely upon how much his blast yield him, the amount impurities he has to sort out and the number of cars he can he supplied with. The method just described is known as pick or solid shot mining most profitable for the miners is machine mining in which a machine cuts off the coal vein from the bottom, after which it is blasted from the top. While one set of miners were thus blasting its way through the coal vein, another set was putting up timbers to support the treacherous slate roof. What do the miners talk: about down there. I listened to them during lunch period. Most ly it was accidents and precaution against them; of sickness of who has been stricken with this or that. As were leaving the mine, report came that one man had been badly injured. His back was crushed between moving cars, Too bad, but was part of daily routine and the work went on. If this escapes the waste basket, I will write again. With best wishes to the News., and all its readers. Respectfully yours, John H. Vire. jazz is a passing fancy; others say a lingering infancy.
