Wilton realized it Instinctively. He leaped feet first and found himself struggling in the gluey swamp, half mud, half water. Kitty, who had fallen Into the center of the stream, appeared half a dozen feet away, her white face upturned, her hands catching for support as the shallow current carried her toward the lake. Fighting madly, Wilton detached his limbs from the sucking mud and managed to grasp her skirt as she drifted past him. With a desperate effort he drew her to him and struggled through the yielding muskeg until he was able to catch an upright of the k. set lips and blazing eyes. She rose without a word, declining his hand, and without a word they went back along the cleared road in the twilight He left her at her door.

ADAIR COUNTY NEWS A Geoi Wimm Gne - Defies Circuit Judge. The death angel has again visited our midst and taken from us one of our loveliest women, Mrs. S, J. Collins, who passed away at her home about 3 o'clock Sunday morning May 28. This dear woman had often prayed that she might be taken quickly and quietly when the end came and God answered her prayer forshe only lived a few hours after taken ill, though she had been a sufferer two years or more with at tacks of heart trouble and about midnight Saturday night she awoke the family with her heart. Dr. Wooden was called but the end came so sudden little or nothing could be done. Mrs. Collins has always been a very retired, unassuming woman who loved her home and children, never tiring of administering to their wants, and in turn she was the idol of those children, a woman who to know was to love. Charlotte J. Allison was born in Kentucky May 6th, IS56: was married to Samual J.Collins May 4th, 1879. To this union were born seven children, namely, Frank Tommie, Mont, Anna, Antha, Jimmie, and Sammie passed on before to welcome the mother at the landing. The husband died in 1905, Mrs. Collins, with six children came to Missouri in the fall of 1907 and settled in Bogard where she died May 28th 1922, aged 65 years 9 months and 22 days. In the language of the Bible, she was a good woman and will be missed by all who knew her, none so much as the children, She watched over and cared for them while young and tender.

Stringer and a poose have spent the last two days and nights in the wilds around Rock Castle Springs. At the February term of court Helton, the allegeed leader of a lawless gang, was given 13 jail sentences for contempt of court, but escaped while working on the road near London. He has since 'been at large, sending messages of defiance to the court officers declaring he would kill any one who attempt-t- o arrest him. Recently Sheriff Stringer returned with Dora Reedy, Myrtle Whittaker and Hirman Wells and placed them in jail. It is said they are members of Helton's gang and had notified him of the approach of the officers. Helton's home was raided and four heavy guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition were brought to London. He is hiding in the Rock Castle river cliffs, heavily armed. Sherrif Stringer has returned to the vicinity of Rock Castle Springs with additional deputies armed wish high powered rifles and having orders from Judge Johnson to stay till Helton is captured.

The trestle he would lay down a corduroy he would drive the men all the summer, If need be, for Joe's sake. Poor Joel The .presence of the dead man seemed to fill the camp just as of old. Joe was the guiding spirit of this work. He had loved Joe more truly than it seemed possible to love any woman. He completed the few routine duties of the office and went to bed. He had dozed off to sleep when something made him start up in bed and listen Intently. He thought he had heard a slight sound In the office. It was so slight that even his trained ears sept the message to his brain doubtfully. But it came again. Some one had very softly clicked back the catch of one of the windows. He "had the- sense of a listener beneath It, and, all alert, Wilton crept noiselessly to his feet and stood listening in the darkness. Now there was no doubt. The window was being pushed very softly open. It was the window between the safe and his bedroom door. In the moonlight Wilton could see that it was opening by Inches. His own door was slightly ajar, and, Inch by Inch, he pushed it open, too. He saw a pair of hands, white, not placed against the bottom of the window-framA face appeared and was thrust cautiously Inside the room In reconnoissance. Wilton recognized Lee oanlDrs.

Big Muskeg was spanned. And, on the strength of that, Wilton believed the time had come to give Joe's secret to the world. He would publish far and wide the secret of the wheat lands. He would establish sufficient confidence in the line to make the raising of a loan a possibility.

He had not seen Kitty, and Kitty had not returned to the camp, but he had had a stormy meeting with the directors and, as he had foreseen, had been given his chance to try once more. There was, indeed, nothing else to be done. Bowyer had made the most of the disaster; but it was to Bowyer's interest that Wilton should try again and fail. That would put the Missatlbl promptly into liquidation. Now Wilton had succeeded. Big Muskeg was conquered, and on the east shore the vanguard of the line was driving the cleared way forward and pegging out the way for the metals. Soon grading would begin. Wilton's camp would shrink, and the engines would be moved ahead, and he would have time to think. He dreaded that He had not seen Molly or the factor since that night of the subsidence. He knew that Bowyer had paid more than one visit to the store, but he shrugged his shoulders and put It out of his mind. The workmen, after their months of arduous labor", had begun to grow slack. There was restlveness In the camp. Once or twice Wilton had seen signs of liquor. He detected It In the slowing up of work ; he had smelled It in the bunkhouses the penetrating odor of cheap alcohol, with its suggestion of gasoline. Andersen, forestalling him, came to him about the time of this discovery. Mr. Carruthers," he said. "I don't know where. I'm keeping my eyes peeled, but I ain't said nothing." "The best policy," said Wilton. "The men have worked hard. When this job's finished we'll let them slack up for a day or two. Then we'll get down to business on this proposition. But if you find out anything let me know at once." A few days later came the spanning of the'swamp. On the same afternoon a summons came from the court, together with a letter from Qualn. The police had at last picked up Paplllon and Passepartout, and had recovered the rifle and transit compass. Wilton was wanted In Clayton to give evl- ce against tne men. e call was opportune. Wilton had already determined to put Into execution a plan that he had formed. It was now October, and little more than two' months remained before the loan would be called.
