The first symptoms became noticeable about one year ago, and three months ago she went to the in home of her county, Indiana, believing that Clark a change would be beneficial, but she continued to grow weaker, and one week ago, her father, Mr. Anthus Loy, went to Indiana and brought her to Columbia, stopping at the Jeffries Hotel, where she had long made her home, and where she was tenderly cared for by Mrs Jeffries and other members of the family until the end came. years old, and She was twenty-fivevery body in Columbia was her friend.

The deceased was a sister, of Chief Justice Bollin Hurt, L. B. Hurt, Young E. Hurt, Mrs. W. B. Kowe and Mrs Leslie Johnson. One brother lives in Texas. The deceased had been delicate all her life, but until a few months ago she was able to visit in the neighborhood, and about once a year she came to Columbia for a few weeks stay with relatives and friends. Her company was at all times enjoyed, as she was a very intelligent woman. When quite a young girl she made a profession of her faith in Christ, united with the Methodist Church, and was a faithful, consecrated Christian until the end. The funeral and burial took place Wednesday afternoon, a large circle of relatives and friends being present. The funeral discourse was preached by Rev. R. V.

The constable, who was leaning chewing the end against the door-posof a twig, started slightly. Peters fixed Wilton lth his crooked stare. "Bather a nervy thing to propose, Mr. Carjuthers!" he sneered. "Maybe, but It's a business matter affecting Mr. Bostock's wife," said Wil-tot, n, 'request, but nerving himself to do so by'the thought of Kitty. "If the news to Mr. Bostock's Interests "will jump at the chance to turn It to account. It will mean a heavy loss to Mrs. Bostock. You've 'come a long way, and you could quite .reasonably wait till afternoon on account of the dogs. That will bring you In before noon tomorrow. And if you can see your way to it, you two won't be the losers." The sergeant eyed him more Insolently than ever. "So that's the pro- gram, is It?" he answered. "Well, keep your mfnd easy. The news won't be known in Clayton tonight, nor tomor- row neither. We ain't going to Clay-ton." loathing himself for making the avhoare antagonistic the time I've mentioned, some people of his death reaches Clayton before . . "You're not, eh? Then where the devil are you going?" cried Wilton, nettled almost beyond endurance at the man's demeanor. "We're taking Joe Bostock's body back to the Pas," retorted the sergeant. "That's what we come here " -- for." "The Pas?' This isn't in the Pas jurisdiction !" "It ain't, eh? Perhaps it's in yours, then?" "See here," cried Wilton in exasperation, "Clayton has Its own police detachment, as you know perfectly well. Your route doesn't lie In this direction. Joe Bostock's homo's there. He's going to be burled there. And his body isn't going to lie dragged here and there about the country by a couple of fool policemen. I'll make tilings pretty warm for you if you try any game like that." "You will, eh?" sneered the sergeant, with a side glance at Myers. "Got any sort of special pull in Clayton?" "Enough to put the lid on you." "Well, I guess you won,'t be going into Clayton yet a while," jeered Peters. "You're coming back to the Pas with us and Joe." Wilton realized that Myers had come up quietly upon the other side of him. He had the bewildered feeling of being in a trap. "What the devil do you mean by that?" he shouted. The sergeant thrust his face forward Into his own. grinning maliciously. "Mr. Carruthers is tfie chief engineer of the line All his interests are bound up with It. Why should he want to murder Joe? He was Joe's best friend. Everyone in Clayton can tell you that. Why, Me risked his own life to save him! Somebody's put you on the wrong track. They're trying to make use of you to keep him out of the way wfllle they ruin the line. And you'll pay for your mistake, that's sure!" And, with frenzied desperation, she succeeded in pushing Myers away from Wilton, and interposed between him and the sergeant, whose revolver pointed steadily at his forehead. Peters scowled viciously at her. "You can tell all that at the inquest," he snapped. "I've got orders to bring you in, too. Get out of the way!" At that the superhuman tension that held Wilton's rage in bounds seemed to snap. His ears were ringing, and a spotted mist floated before his eyes. Through this he saw Peters an Infinite distance away, the revolver, now hardly larger than a pencil, pointing at his head. Behind the sergeant he saw Anfigure with a toy dersen, a pan In his hand. He leaped at Peters, heard the weapon discharged, and was conscious of the sting of powder on his forehead and a commotion In his hair. Peters had shot to kill, but the weapon, the least bit diverted by Molly's intervention, had been at Wilton's forehead a little hurriedly, and he had forgotten that the strong ammunition, of which complnlnt had frequently been made by the police superintendents, was apt to throw the bullet high at short distances. Wilton shot his uninjured arm forward with a vicious swing that caught the sergeant on the cheek and sent him staggering backward. But the force of the blow, communicated to Wilton's left shoulder, wrenched the wound and forced a groan of pain from his lips. Peters reeled, regained his balance, and rushed forward again, swinging the revolver aloft, butt forward, in his hand. With his powerful build he could have delivered a blow that would have crushed Wilton's skull. But reiore the blow fell Andersen had raised his pan and brought it down edgewise upon the sergeant's head, cutting the scalp to the bone and drenching the man with the boiling grease. With a scream of pain Peters stumbled forward, letting the revolver fall from his hand, slipped In the grease that had begun to ooze along the floor, and fell full length on the planks, whore lie lay writhing in anguish, and trying to clear his eyes of the melted fat and the blood that streamed down cried. doll-lik- e re-aim- ed "Keep Your Hands Up, Both of You!" glad fe get out Into the air. Wilton made his way to the cache, unlocked It, and took out some frozen fish for the dogs, which were giving tongue vigorously inside the stable. "Here, Papillon 1" he called. "I can't make out what's the matter with those men, lying in their blankets at this hour, with the dogs howling for their breakfast," he said to Molly indignantly. "They must have known I'd feed them before starting on a run like the one we've got before us. I suppose they heard the row and got scared back to bed," he added. But no answer came to his call, and suddenly Molly uttered a cry and On the other side of the pointed. stable were the tracks of a sleigh, obliterated at the entrance by the falling snow, which had drifted against the building. Wilton wrenched the door open. His sleigh and the dogs were gone, together with the rifle, shotgun and transit-compass. .: came to as cache and horse stable, which had been built In anticipation of winter development work, and had formed the hub of many radiating reconnols-sanc- e roads. They had come no more than six miles, and it was still a good fifteen Into Clayton. By this time the blizzard had increased to an intense violence, driving great sheets of snow along the road. It was impossible to face such a hurricane any longer. "We'll have to wait till this lets up a bit, Molly," said Wilton. The little shack, hardly more than four walls and a roof, was unoccupied. Wilton broke down the door and went in. He found the key of the stable, unlocked it, and unharnessed the dogs. He drove them in and shut the door. Then he took the blankets out of the sleigh and went into the shack. To build a fire was impossible, but they ate biscuit and tinned beef, washing It down with water. "It'll have to let up soon," said Wilton. "If it doesn't, we'll just have to face it again." A. dozen times he had regretted having yielded to her Insistence to accompany him. Traveling in that weather was hard on a man, let alone a girl such as Molly. He looked at her In wonder as he saw her apparent unconcern, the courage with which she faced the difficulties of the journey. But his fears were centered chiefly on Kitty. Suppose he couldn't go on! Suppose he couldn't be at the shareholders' meeting on the morrow ! Toward the middle of the afternoon the wind seemed to have lessened, though the driven snow still swept In blinding clouds along the road. It might be possible to reach Clayton soon after nightfall. "I think we might try again, Molly," he said. "I think so, Will," she answered. He caught her to him. "You are the bravest woman I know," he said, kissing her. "We must succeed for Kitty's sake." She kissed him back. "Of course we shall, Will, dear," she answered. Wilton went into the stable and called the dogs. They were lying with their noses together, and at his entrance sprang to their feet with menacing growls. They knew very well what his advent portended, and It was plain that their wolfish temper was long uub fizx of At one o'clock ih tby rwo.

Instantly Molly stooped, snatched up the weapon, which had fallen at her feet, and covered the constable, who had flung himself upon Wilton again. Myers stopped dead and threw his hands up automatically. "Get over there !" said Molly briskly, pointing toward the wall behind the sergeant. Myers obeyed immediately, and took his post against the wall, the picture of confusion. Peters struggled slowly to his feet.

At the same moment Wilton felt the touch of steel against his right wrist, and swung his hand free just in time to avoid the snap of the handcuff. Looking at Sergeant Peters after the Instant's sideward glance, he found himself covered by the heavy, regulation .45 Colt. Before he could stir, Myers had seized him from behind and made a violent effort to slip the hand- -' cuff upon his wrist. Wilton heard Molly scream. The girl came running out of the room with her hair tumbling about her shoulders, and caught at Myers' arm. The caretaker started toward them, still holding the frying pan, In which ' fie was cooking the potatoes, his face ', working with rage.

"Won't you men listen to common sense?" she tered the sergeant, trying to clear the fat from his eyes. "I do, and I'll take my chance." answered Wilton, gritting his teeth at the pain from his Injured arm. The wound did not seem to have reopened, but either his blow or the grasp of the constable had displaced the broken ends of the bone, and he cou!ti feel them grating together at his slightest movement. "Keep your nands up, both of j'ou !" he ordered. "Give me the revolver, Molly! Got a rope, Andersen?" "Well, I guess I have," grinned the Swede. He stepped to a packing case behind the stove, and brought out a short coll of manila, which, with a kitchen knife, he sliced into four or five lengths. "I tank I tie them to that beam," he said, indicating one of the vertical uprights of the wooden shack. "All right, Andersen," said Wilton. "Tie 'em go that they can sit down. They'll have some time to wait, and they may get tired of standing." He took the revolver from Molly and slipped it Into his pocket. Peters let loose a string of vicious oaths as Andersen proceeded to truss him up, but neither man offered any resistance. The caretaker stepped back and looked at his work with critical satisfaction. "I tank you get to Clayton by tomorrow night, all right, Mr. Carruthers' he said with droll complacency, putting some more potatoes In the pan. Despite- their elation, Molly and Wilton could eat but little, washing down the food, which they could hjvrdljTjnstjcatej. with gulps of coffee. - during the night. "They must have guessed that those men meant to arrest you, or else they heard them talking," said Molly. But Wilton had hurried to the horse stalls, separated from the dog stable by a stout door. He breathed a deep sigh of relief. The second sleigh was there. For a moment the thought of possibilities had made his heart almost stand still. He came, back grim and resolute. "There's something pretty deep in all this business," he said. "I know why the men ran away. The sergeant gave them the tip to. I saw him talking to Papillon last night. And that's the reason why they wouldn't sleep in the shack because they meant to run. I suppose the policemen were afraid that they would make trouble, or try to help us. But I can't fathom It. Those men acted like criminals. That's not the way of the police." He clenched his fist and swore under his breath. "I'll have those fellows broke for this, If I have to go to Ottawa," he said. "And I'm going to run down those breeds, if It takes me a lifetime. I tell you this, Molly: it's all bound up with Joe in some way or other, and Tom Bowyer's at the bottom of it." "But first remember Kitty," said Molly softly, laying her hand on Wilton's shoulder. Even the slight touch made him wince, for the pain of ills broken arm was becoming unbearable. He realized that in all probability he was in for a long spell of illness. He knew that the bone would have to be reset His head felt strangely light, and the ground seemed to slope downhill from him in all directions. But he shut his teeth hard, and would not let Molly guess. And ,a feverish energy took possession of him. He must hold out for the journey, until after the shareholders' meeting until he had told Kitty! "We'll take the police sled and start at once," he said to Molly. "It looks as if a storm was brewing. I'll tell Andersen to let those fellows go about noon, and I'll leave the revolver with him." Inside the shack they found the policemen eating their breakfast on the floor, with the caretaker diligently serving them. They were still bound, but their hands were free. "Turn them loose at noon, Andersen," Wilton said. "Give them enough g to carry them on their way. Just turn them loos" and see that they haven't any dangerous weapons to do you mischief with." "You bet I take care for that," grinned the Swede. Wilton let Andersen harness the dogs, to save his strength for the journey. In a few minutes the sled was ready, with the sleigh carrying Joe's body attached behind, and the huskies, harnessed, sitting docile In the snow, awaiting the command to mush. The sun was just showing above the horizon when Wilton and Molly started on the second stage of their journey to Clayton. slap-ban- thoroughly aroused. Wilton had handled a refractory pack once before. He knew that quick action was necessary. He stepped forward, and, as the gleaming Jaws gaped at him, and the animals prepared to spring, snarling and quivering with rage, he brought his whip across the leader's nose with all his strength. Immediately, with maddened yells, the pack leaped at him. Wilton swung right and left with the whip, and then, retreating till his back was against the wall of the shack, he laid about him with the shortened stock. With gaping jaws and wicked, bloodshot eyes, the pack came on again and again, leaping at him, tearing at his clothes; one sank its fangs Into his right hand, and, as he freed himself with a smashing blow, the others were upon him sideward.

Fire blight, a bacterial disease that is highly destructive to pear trees and one chat sometimes becomes serious on apples trees, is alarming apple growers in many parts of the State by infecting their trees, according to reports being received by W. D. Valleau, plant pathologist at the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station. Little can be done to control it at the present time and the chances are that it will do small damage, he said. "On apples the disease is present as a blossom blight although it also infects leafy twigs, A part of the blossom clusters thought to have been killed by the frost this spring probably have been destroyed by the blight bacteria. "The blight that is most injurious lives over the winter in cankers found on large branches while that which usually is found on fruit spurs and small twigs dies out as soon as rapid growth stops and seldom lives over winter.

They gave the Government an industry as the War Finance Corporation and the War Industries Board. They gave the Government an insight into the problems of business men and farmers that has been of the greatest value since that time. The War Finance Corporation, in particular, has woven itself so stoutly into the business fabric of the nation that it has endured through the reconstruction period and will receive a large majority in Congress on the pending motion to extend its powers another year. Kentucky has been shown the importance of the War Finance Corporation more than any other State to date.

Willson, Louisville, the State Chairman. High school seniors trying for the scholarships offered by the University of Kentucky, offered to the one in each county raising the most in subscription for the Fund, will cotinue Memorial their soliciting until June 1. Sev-erstrong candidates for the $100 scholorshins offered in the State at large have been reported to State Headquarters. The fund is near the 190,000 mark with only a few final reports received from the schools of the State. Donni Cobb, 6 year old pupil of Johnson schoul at Lexington, is the champion orator and solicitor for the Fund. Following his successful money raising he was sent before all the school children in his ward, at one time speaking to more than 600.

This put Kentucky on the large financial map more than all the railroad loans and mineral development in the history of the state. A perusal of Mr. Meyer's speech is bound to make every Kentucky reader proud of the fact that the farmers of this state have been able to win such golden opinions from masters of finance and guardians of the treasury. The Times is pleased that the occasion gives an opportunity to laud the services of Mr. Meyer, who has done even more in the reconstruction of the economic activity of this country than he did in the raising and manning of the war army and navy.

For far away was Clayton, over the plain, with Its ugly streets and bare, new houses, and the gaunt station buildings, roundhouses and locomotive shops. They were white as shrouded bodies, besmeared with grime, and Wilton was caked with the blood that had oozed from his wounds and frozen. "One last try, Molly," he said, "and then tliey can do what they like with me. But It's you who pulled that trick, girl of mine!" But as he spoke he slipped to the ground and leaned his shoulders against the sleigh. "Seven miles yet, and the meeting's at nine," he said. "I can't make it, Molly. I've tried. I've fallen short just short. A little later, Molly, I'll try again. I'm going to sleep In the sunshine." Molly stooped over him, and it was a harder thing than she had ever done to try to drive the driven man further. But she knew that, having staked nil, Wilton would be content with no less than the sacrifice of all. "Remember Joe, dear," she said, are expected to be within the city8 hospitable gates.

And then, out of a Molly's face, and her tears upon his cheeks. Sfes was kneeling beside him upon tite floor of the stable, stanching the Waod from his wounds with a strip tara from her petticoat. Upon the floor lay three of the dogs, dead. Two rxeve were writhing and moaning In a distant orner. Wilton looked up. Molly towed her face upon his and broke Into hysterical weeping. It was tbe first sign of weakness he had ever seen In her. He held her In his right arm. He saw that his blood had stained her hands, her clothing. "Molly," he said weakly, "Molly" She wept in utter hopelessness. "It is useless, Will," she sobbed. "Let us JIe here. We can't go on. They have torn you. Tour arm is broken again.

In the foremost Molly recognized Qualn, the .Inspector who was In command of the detachment at Clayton. The three trotted their horses up to them, and, catching sight of the coffin upon the sleigh, the inspector dismounted. He looked hard at Wilton, and suddenly he recognized him. "It's Will Carruthers!" he exclaimed, staring Into his face In bewilderment. Wilton got up with an effort. "Morning, Jack," he said wearily. "Yes, It's I. And here's Miss McDonald. You know her, I think?" The Inspector turned his puzzled glance on the girl. Mechanically his hand went up to his cap in salute. Then he looked at the sleigh again. "And this is was Joe Bostock," said Wilton; and all at once, in the reaction from the nervous tension, he felt the tears streaming down his face, and could hardly keep his lips steady.

"We're looking for" "And by the way," said Wilton with a mirthless laugh, as the relative unimportance of the fact struck him, "I'm under arrest for having murdered Joe." Quain looked at him keenly, and then turned his glance upon Molly In inquiry. It was plain that he thought Wilton was raving. "That's true," said Molly. "A sergeant and a constable from the Pas followed us up to Andersen's and placed Wilton under arrest yesterday morning." The Inspector on for two hours more. There's a bigger thing behind this than you or I know just now. I'm going on ahead. I'm all right, and you won't stop me, Jack?" TO BE CONTINUED Killing Armenians. Now that it has been decided that the Turk is to remain in Constantinople, the Turkish armies that have been fighting the Greeks in Asia Minor are making their way back to Europe, and the dispatches from the Near East announce that the Turks are indulging freely in their old pastime of killing Armenians. This evil is an old one, and no machinery whatever seems to have been rigged up to protect the Armenians. The European nations wanted the United States, back in 1918 to accept a mandate for Armenia, but that suggestion was rejected with scorn by our Senate. England and France have been trying, in rather a feeble way to protect the Armenians, but that protection does not seem lo have been worth much. Bands of disbanded Turkish soldiers are roaming about Armenia, killing and burning as they go -- -- doud. -- "We'll go on," said Wilton.
