SHE JES' tn y Winfrey, Deputy sheriff, and Elmer Miller, Deputy Jailer, charged with killing a man named Clarence Yan Arnsdale and wounded Ted Morrison, a raid on moonshines, about one month ago, were given a trial last Tuesday before County Judge C. G. Jeffries. The shooting of the above named men occurred in the Keltner precinct where the officers found a still in operation and two or three men standing about it. The officers told them to surrender and that no one would be hurt. About that time a shot came from a man over on a hill, and it was known that it was fired at the officers. Seeing that they were in for a fight they commenced shooting and a number of shots were fired. When the firing ceased it was found that Yan Arnsdale had been killed and Ted Morrison wounded. The still and beer were destroyed and the officers returned to Columbia, and as above stated, their trial came on last Tuesday. The State was represented by County Attorney, Gordon Montgomery, and the defense by Jones & Garnett, L. C. Winfrey and W. A. Coffey. All the testimony was in early in the afternoon and the case submitted to the County Judge who promptly Acquitted the defendants. The result of the trial was not a surprise, as all who were acquainted with the circumstances, predicted that the officers would go free. Officers Under Bond. The officers of this county who engaged in the Keltner trouble, answered a warrant for their arrest at Greensburg last Thursday, that county claiming that the, shooting occurred in Green county, and that Adair was out of her jurisdiction in trying them. The officers gave bond for their appearance in Green county court on next Saturday,- - but there will be no trial at that time, as the wounded man, Ted Morrison, will not be able to appear in Court at that date, but under the law the case will be called and again continued until Morrison can appear. Dr. C. M. Russell, Coroner of Adair, delivered the officers to the Green . county officials. Public Sale.

The first two men up .fanned and the visiting team began to gather up their bats while many of the spectators took their departure. But surely base ball is a game that is not nut until it is played out and the fans rubbed their eyes with wonder when presently the bases were discovered to be full and Harrington was advancing to the bat. Somehow or other his huge frame came into contact with the spheroid and a forced run was registered making the score and the bases full again. This time Webb went to the bat and with two striates on him made a two base hit bringing two men in and with it a victory for Lindsey, but that score would not satisfy, Irvin, who can always be depended upon when it comes to hand-lin- g the stick, let drive a beauty and when the dust had lifted and the last man scored, Lindsey had won Saturday was the day set for the third game of the series with Jamestown but this did not prove so exciting as the visitors were easily outclassed and the score stood 15-- in favor of Lindsey.

Pancha vanished into the fog, wading along the creek, and finally creeping out below the' burned cabin. If tEera were any guards left there they ?ere not encountered, and the mists bung so thick at that early hour she took few precautions to avoid them. Her one thought was Macklin ; love had conquered hate, and the desire for revenge. There was a chance of success for her mission. The debris had not been searched over; it could not have been.'for the fire still smoldered, but the moment the Indians were able to overhaul the wreck they would discover that their victims had, in some way, escaped. There would be no charred bones, no singed flesh, to tell of dead bodies consumed in the flames; they would not even find Macklin's remains. And Laud was no fool. The truth, in some form, would come to him at once; he would know they had got safely away; nor would he ever stop until he again found them. And he would suspect her; perhaps had seen her face when she fired that fatal shot. Her only chance lay now, before this revealment came. She was cool, resourceful; had shrewdly thought out .every step. If she was still unsuspected, no one would stop her. She had always been free to leave the valley. Often she had taken early rides, and none of the ordinary guards would consider her going forth as at all strange. Of course, the Hole was filled now with strange fugitives Indians hiding from the soldiers, suspicious of every white face. These might cause trouble, but she must take that chance. There was but one way to save Macklin's life the doctor at Gerlasche. Shelby had told her so, and nothing else remained fixed in her mind. Mother of God, she would save him ! There were three horses in the little stable shack back of the cabin. She crept cautiously up through the fog, unable to see in the gloom, but locating the animals by touch. One was still moist from riding, Laud's pony, no doubt The next was her own, having scarcely stamina for such a trip, but the third was the bay Juan had always been so proud of. She led the animal out, saddled and bridled him In the darkness, and then, mounting in the gray dawn, with a prayer in her heart for help and guidance she rode slowly out into the trail. A fire burned in front of the little house beside the falls, a d logs, with mere flicker of two men hovering over It One of them started up, at sound of the horse's hoofs and gripped a rifle. He was white, a flapping hat brim shadowing his face; the other, an Indian, wrapped in a blanket, merely lifted his head, and stared moodily. Her heart gave a sharp bound, but she reined up carelessly, as the fellow stepped Into the trail. He peered curiously into her face. "H 1, young woman, you're out d d early, ain't you? What's up?" There was nothing vicious In his greeting, and her heart quit its pounding. 'Tin after a doctor, Sam," she said swiftly, believing boldness the best card to play. "My brother has been half-burne- Lands." "Sure ; better keep in the first gully, er yer might run inter a sojer outfit They're thicker than fleas out there now, they tell me. So long, sister." It had begun to snow, big, heavy flakes, drifting with the wind, quickly whitening the landscape.. The slight marks of the trail were almost Instantly obliterated, but the low range of hills ahead were a sufficient landmark, and she forced her horse into a swift pace; riding with her head lowered, but with watchful eyes peering through the snow curtain. She was alone now ; free, with nothing intervening between her and Gerlasche. Her heart bounded with the elixir of success she would bring back the doctor to Macklin. She felt no doubt any more. The direct trail circled just within the outer range of the ,sand hills, making it impossible- - for her to mistake the way even "in that maze of snow. She rode more carelessly now that she was safely out of sight and free from any possibility of pursuit The horse, with lowered head, seemed to feel the urgency, and plunged forward eagerly. Suddenly as they swept around a sharp corner, seeing and hearing nothing to warn of any other presence in that solitude, they came at full tilt against a halted column of cavalry. Before Pancha could even jerk up her reins, a startled trooper had gripped the bit and held her mount helplessly pawing the air. "Well, what's this?" he growled, tugging at the frightened animal, and outlaws?" "Indian Joe Laud, senor." "I've heard of the brute. Judging from the way you looked then, he Is no friend of yours."

He studied the spot carefully through the leveled field glasses, and then swept them Inch by Inch over d the plain. He returned them to the case, and cast one more glance Into the depths below. "Very well, men," he said quietly, "We will return to the squadron." Shaunessy, with ten men, was given the cutting-ou- t job, the major drawing up his command behind the sand hills In readiness for a swift advance. The sergeant led his little force well to the right of where the outpost was snow-covere- believed to be, and finally dismounted them, leaving two men in charge of the animals, while, with the others, he proceeded forward on foot The sand hills approached much closer to the river at this point, and ridges extended out into the plain, affording "No. senor.

"You know this Tom Shelby?" "Do I! of course I do. You remember him, Major Hays. He was with us once in 'C Troop; then later detailed with the scouts. He's up in this country, I know. I ran into him down at Ponca when I came through there. Why, that was his wedding day, and I saw the bride." "You say those renegade devils have got them both there in the Hole?" broke in the major, "prisoners?" "They got away now; they hide in a cave," she explained. And you will show us the way In?" "Senor, the doctor he will care for this man if I do?" "I pledge you my word he will." "And you keel Indian Joe Laud, "We'll surely do our best" "Then I show you yes; who that man there?" Shaunessy wheeled about to face the fellow she pointed at gripping him with one hand, and dragging him forth from among the circle of soldiers. "This is the bird they gave us for a guide," he said shortly. "You know him?" "He," she gave vent to a bitter laugh. "That fellow Dull Knife; bad Indian, horse thief. Why they give you heem?" "H 1 knows. What'll I do with the cuss, major?" "Have a couple of men hold him under guard. We seem to be on the senor?" V "Well, What's This?"

"Sure, but I'm bettin' the cuss won't come, 'less he brings the whole army long with him. He'd have 'ter mosey In yere blindfold if he did." "Just the same hee'll come, If I find heem," she said grimly, "for I'll bring heem, dead or alive. Who's out there on the trail?' "'Bed' Haines, an Stumpy, 'long with a couple of Sioux.

She rode forward, never even venturing to glance back. Thus far had gone easier than she could have hoped. There were no orders out against her, and these night lgtoards were not even aware of what had taken place. She guided her h'orse under theveil of falling water, and up the steep bank 'Beyond, out Into the 'valley of the Cottonwood.

She led them along a slight depression, sufficiently to partially screen them from The steady fall of snow observation. had ceased, although there were occasional flurries, driving sharply into their faces. Overhead the clouds hung low and gray. Hays swore under his breath, half convinced he was being made a fool of. Twice he started to speak, but held his tongue. The girl never turned her head, but moved straight forward. She came to a slight ridge, and stopped suddenly, pointing. " TIs there, senor." she said simply, "Wolves' hole." The astounded officer stood motionless, his mouth open, his eyes staring at the sight so unexpectedly revealed. For an Instant he could not believe what he saw. Almost undez his feet the precipice fell away Into that tremendous gorge, the mantle of snow emphasizing Its depth, but bringing out the black rocks in stern con- them considerable protection as they cautiously advanced, seeking every possible bit of shelter. Shaunessy, using the field glasses loaned him by the major, surveyed the ground carefully before venturing to lead the way, and, In this manner, the little party finally crept In behind the crest of land overlooking the valley of the Cottonwood. It had been the plan to drop silently over the edge of the bank, and work their way along, so as to attack the outlaws from the rear, thus rendering the escape of any impossible. But once there on the ground the slope was found to be far too abrupt for this purpose, and the idea had to be abandoned. The only other procedure was to creep along, under the protection of the ridge, trusting to swiftness of attack. The sergeant crept forward, inch by inch, watchful of everything in front He never glanced back, but his carbine was flung forward, cocked and ready. It was fifty yards to where the gnarled cedar protruded above the bank, but no sign of any movement greeted him until he had nearly reached that point. Then, suddenly, with no warning of any kind, a red, bloated face shoved Itself up above the edge of the bank. The startled eyes looked directly Into the muzzle of the carbine. "Stop right there, buddy 1" said the sergeant sternly. "Now lads, over you go!" "They took the leap recklessly, some rolling down the steep slope, others finding some sort of foothold and rushing fiercely forward. The guard was taken by complete surprise, helpless most of them before they could even reach their feet or grasp their weapons. Shaunessy backed his prisoner down to where the others stood sullenly, and surveyed the scene. "Five; that's the whole bunch," he said with satisfaction. "A very good job. Now, Gates, go up there and wigwag the major." Ten minutes later the advance files of the squadron topped the edge of the bluff and began to slowly move down the steep trail. Hays expressed his approval. "Exceedingly well done, sergeant; got the whole outfit I see. Have your men bring up your horses.

There was scarcely a tinkling of accoutrements as the long column of horsemen slowly advanced down the d crookerl trail toward the valley far below. Pancha, riding beside the major, led the way through the curtain to where the Cottonwood plunged over the rock precipice Into the deeper gorge beyond. To her uplifted hand of warning the column halted, the Mexican girl leaning over to explain the situation ahead.

"But where were you going?" "To Gerlasche, senor, there Is army doctor there." "Not now there ain't; he's back here with us somewhere. Where Is this fellow who's hurt?" She hesitated just an instant, yet there was no avoiding the truth. If the doctor was here among these soldiers, she would have to tell the truth or else desert Macklin to his fate. Besides, what did she care? Her hatred of Laud suddenly flared into new life. Here was the opportunity for revenge, as well as service. "In Wolves hole, senor." "Wolves' hole! Good God! did you come from there? Pass the word for the major, some one. What's that?

In the first place, the birthrate in Germany has fallen enormously since the war came, and is apt to remain comparatively low. But why does France want to increase her population? If she feels another war is certain we see why she feels that they must have "food for cannon," to use a terrible phrase of the old Ger man military clique, but other wise France should be content Jnv ml m with her population of 38,000,000.

Houses have been unroofed and business blocks greatly damaged by windstorms that attracted little notice in the community. Such damages are of common occurrences. Tornadoes or twisters are admitedly the most destructive form assumed by the elements. Scientists have calculated that the tube of a tornado travels in its circular path at a speed as high as ten miles a minute, and exerts an atmospheric presure ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 pounds a square foot.
