Shelby left them there, creeping out through the entrance onto the rock platform without It had ceased snowing, but enough had fallen to cover the bluff with a white mantle, obliterating the trail, and leaving the valley below covered. The sky arched over all dull and gray. Shelby hung out over the ledge, watchfully studying the view outspread beneath. It was a peaceful scene enough, with scarcely a moving figure visible. He could hardly realize that this was the haunt of outlaws, where only a few hours before he had been desperately struggling for life. The daylight revealed no sign of disorder or pursuit, the only reminder of what had occurred being the blackened ruins of the burned Yet cabin almost directly below. this was deserted and the snow about appeared untrampled. The sight gave him hope, yet he felt strangely depressed and unnerved. The remembrance of the scene just witnessed could not be cast off. He had no reason to question the truth of that occasion and it had impressed him strongly. Macklin was evidently dying; was already beyond help. Any breath might prove to be his last, and It was even then too late for any doctor to save him. But would Pancha return in time to assist them? Would she bring sufficient help with her? In spite of the ominous quiet below he felt no faith that Indian Joe would so easily abandon their trail. He was not that kind. Something would assuredly arouse his suspicion that they had not perished in the scarcely breathes any more. Isn't there any way I can help?" "Only by doing what I asked; get his gun! This is bound to be some fight. I don't know how many are out there; the bird who shot at me Is behind that rock yonder; he's Indian all right; you can glimpse his scalp ock just over the edge. If he would only shove his nut up about half an Inch more I'd show him that a '45 ain't such a bad weapon, when you know how to use it." He advanced, his revolver barrel across the top, and lay motionless, sighting along the smooth steel. "Nw, boy, you do that again. Can't make out exactly where I have gone, can you? Well, you are going to find out in about His grip tightened. "Ah! there you are!" His finger pressed the trigger, sending forth a spurt of flame. A brawny red arm was flung up, the hand gripping at the rock for support; then a rifle went crashing down Into the chasm and the next instant an Indian whirled head downward, the body striking a narrow ledge and bouncing off into space. Three shots answered the crack of the revolver, so swiftly as to seem echoes, the bullets striking the solid rock wall, one, crushed out of all shape, dropping directly In front of Olga, crouching in the entrance. Shelby laughed, but with eyes stern and watchful. "Three more located," he said pleasantly. "Seem to have us pretty well trapped. I'd like to know how they got up here without using the trail. I thought you were goin' after that extra gun?" "I am, Tom, but I can't stay In there. I want to be out here with Those reds can't shoot through this rock. All I got to do is He here quiet an' take 'em on the jump." "But suppose they rush In on you?" "It don't hardly look reasonable. Still, o' course, they might try It, If they got a white leader. Indians never would themselves; It's liable to cost too heavy." "That Is why I am coming back," "I told you I could .she Insisted. "All right" he grinned cheerfully, "come along, then ; only you keep down out of the way, and let me do the sniping. There! now you lost me a shot! Did you see that buck dodge between those two rocks? He'll try you." "Why I little girl. "You believe they Intend to try and get up here?" "That's my present notion; they don't look for much trouble either. It Is up to us to give that outfit the surprise of their lives." She reached out her hand and found his, as It rested on the belt of cartridges. "Tom I" "Yes," he answered without removing his gaze from the trail below. "Don't worry about me," she said earnestly.

He stopped, shaken by a paroxysm of coughing. Shelby held him tightly, and finally this passed away, the man resting weakly on his arms, but with mind evidently wandering. "I used to talk all right," he whispered hoarsely, gasping for breath, "an' I could warble some; too. Say, did you ever hear me sing:" "Yes,. Kid, I've heard you." "Sure, you did.

She held to one weapon, laying the other on the rocks, together with a belt filled with cartridges. Shelby barely swept his eyes toward her, his whole attention concentrated on what was occurring below. Something was taking place down there, but exactly what could not immediately be determined. He had perceived men moving beyond range, dodging along from rock to rock, mere glimpses of dark figures, yet plainly enough Indians. Once he was almost sure he distinguished a white man, through a Tift In a gully, but the fleeting view Nevergained was not convincing. theless he had no doubt but what there were white men present.

Beyond all question it was he who was behind the effort, urged on by personal hatred, as well as a desire to gain possslon of Olga. Shelby wondered whut the fellow might know. Could he be aware of the escape of Macklin? and that Pancha had ridden forth In search for help? If he did that might account for his desperate eagerness to overcome what resistance they could offer before she returned. Yet probably not, for if he did know the coward In him would cause him to seek flight before he could be cornered In this place. It was far more likely that he believed himself opposed merely by Shelby and the girl, armed with a revolver or two, and having a limited supply of ammunition. He saw little peril in the adventure, and figured that a quick, sharp rush, his warriors leaping from covert to covert would win an easy victory. He would keep up a steady rifle fire from behind the rocks, forcing the defenders to keep under cover, and then suddenly send a charging party to end the affair. Shelby smiled grimly at the mental picture, never turning his head as he spoke to the silent girl beside him. "How's Macklin?" "Dead, I think, Tom. He didn't seem to breathe even faintly." "The poor devil; it will be mighty hard on Pancha though. You got your gun?" 40 CARDUi VI 1 S I . y i -- ADA'lR- county ifewS -- .

Monday is npay day In Indiana and some other fields, but elsewhere It is as late as Friday. More than $20,000,000 will be paid to the men In the districts, regarded as forming the stronghold of the suspension in the Pennsylvania anthracite region, the central competitive fields and the southwest Interstate district. For the anthracite miners, Mr. Green estimated that $7,500,000 was due them for work between March 15 and 31. The central competitive field with its 215,000 union workers, he said, would receive about $10,505,-00- 0 and the southwest interstate region, almost $2,800,000. In other bituminous union fields, the wages due were estimated at $7,000,000, about half being to the men In central Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Cite Report of U. S. While exact distribution of the wages was said by Mr. Green to be impossible until reports are complete, he pointed out on the basis of the geological survey reports that 25,000,000 tons of soft coal and 5,000,000 tons of anthracite were mined In the last half of the month. Union miners were said to have produced at least of the soft coal, and the whole anthracite Industry Is closed on account of the union's suspension of work. The labor cost to the ton, according to the union's contention, rages from $1.40 fo $1.50 a ton, at which figure $30,000,000 would be realized from the production of 21,000,000 two-thirds y roar-v.Zi- js -- w snow-cover- ed -xad muz-.ssL- to 22,000,000 tons. The geological survey reports, referred to by Mr. Green, gave the bituminous daily production for March 15 to March 28, both Inclusive, at an average of 34,794 cars, approximately 1,750,000 tons, an increase coming with shape-iiesshea- p. -- the approach of the date set for the suspension of work. Anthracite production for the week ended March 25, was given as 1,095,000 tons and Both political parties have guarded the civil service and fostered the ideal of a trained clerical personnel whose removal from office would come only from a dereliction of duty. Recently, President Harding discharged a number of men employed at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. They were discharged in flagrant disregard of the provisions of the civil service law. Men who had served for more than a quarter of a century, who had served as faithfully under Republican rule as under a Democratic regime, men who sought only to discharge their duties faithfully regardless of the party in power, were discharged without a moments warning. Our disapproval of the recent action of Mr. Harding is not affected by partisan considerations Both Republicans and Democrats were discharged in the recent episode which strikes at the heart of the civil service. Despite the fact that President Harding as elected on a platform which had embodied therein a plank which stated "We renew our repeated declaration that the civil service law shall be thoroughly and honestly enforced," that pledge, as other campaign promises, has been disregarded. By that stroke of the pen which ordered the dis missal of conscientious servants of the government, he destroyed that which it took Roosevelt, Taf t and Wilson years to build up. The dismissal of these persons was an indefensible, arbitrary act, perpetrated by a man who had the temerity to call Wood- row Wilson an autocrat.

Wright Buck, years, old, was found strangled to death at the end of a small rope In the basement of the home of his brother, Dr. Dexter Buck. Ah open pocket knife was found on the floor and the police believe Buck tried to cut himself down. Recently the city school board announced Buck's home would be purchased as a site for a new schoolhouse, and neighbors say Buck was despondent over losing his forty-thre- e talk interestingly upon the subject. When Mr. Taft was inaugurated President March 4, 1909, he called Congress together in extra session to revise the tariff downward, and he unquestionably thought Congress intended to do so. But Congress refused to reduce tariff rates? and finally passed a tariff bill that proved so odious to the country that the Taft administration was destroyed. We cannot doubt that Mr. Harding knows this piece of political history, but he seems to feel that what destroyed Mr. Taft's administration will not injure his. But he may find himself mistaken.

The message said the explosion occurred in the chancery of the Legation at 8 o'clock at night, breaking all the chancery windows and causing additional damage, but that no one was in the Legation at the time. The cablegram added that the preliminary police investigation indicated the explosion was caused by a bomb. SKYSCRAPER IS PLANNED For Berlin, Where Permit Calls For 20 Story Office Structure Berlin.

I ride on horseback of seventy miles over the Virginia roads in a little over one day. which, if nothing wonderful as a feat of endurance, is still pretty good for an army officer of past 60. The General, so the correspond ents say, appeared to be in the pink of physical condition, and prepared to go right ahead with the inspection work that brought him to that part of Virginia. It is now more than fifteen years since Mr. Roosevelt, then President, issued his famous order providing that all army men in active service should show themselves able to do active work by taking a horseback ride of at least fifty miles in one day. Certain army men who were, and knew they were, in no condition for active work, resented the order, and, of course, Mr. Roosevelt's political enemies hailed it as an act of tyranny. But it was not. It was a reasonable regulation, and resulted in the weeding out of the army of a number of men who should not have remained on the active list, and of the making of better rules for the future. General Pershing has had an exceedingly active career, but, as the recent incident proves, he is able to stand any reasonable test of physical efficiency. Louisville Post.
