The suit for damages against Geo. Coffey, Sheriff of Adair county, S. F. Coffey, Frank Winfrey, deputy sheriffs, and Elba Miller, deputy jailer of this county, brought by the widow of Clarence Van Arnsdale, came on for trial in the Green circuit court last Tuesday. The amount asked by the plaintiff was $10,000. The defendants were represented by Jones & Garnett, L. C. Winfrey and W. A. Coffey, of the Columbia bar, and Judge Hal Graham and Charles toggle, Greensburg. The plaintiff was represented by Jeff Henry and Boyce Skaggs, of Greensburg. The case was argured by Judge W. W. Tones and Judge Hal Graham for the defendants, Mr. Jeff Henry and Boyce Skaggs for the plaintiff. Quite a crowd was present during the taking of the testimony, and it was generally believed by outsiders before the jury was given the case that the plaintiff would fail to get a judgment. It has been reported to this office that the jury was not out more than twenty minutes before it returned with a verdict in favor of the defendants. Friends of the officers here are certainly glad that the case has been settled, and that they have been exonerated from blame. In this day of moonshining, officers may be called npon to do some very unpleasant acts, but when they are called to go out and make arrests, if they are courageous men they will do their duty. In this case the good people of Adair county stood by the officers as they should. This raid and what followed should be a warning to all parties who have an inclination to disobey the laws of the government. Lawless men can not persistently violate the laws of the United .States and live. They may survive for awhile, but sooner or later they will come to the end of their course. In the Keltner case no one would have been killed if the officers had not been fired upon. If the moonshineia had surrendered when they were told to so do, instead of showing fight, Van Arnsdale would be living to day and Teddy Morrison would not have been wounded. Killed While Attempting Murder. Church Movement (02 Acres With Growing Crop Over HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS which case in A remarkable two women were killed, in Tennessee, Just over the Cumberland County, Kentucky line, has just reached the "News. The names of the parties could not be gotten, Dr, H. B. Simpson, who lives in this County,only three quarters of a mile from the Cumberland couuty line, gives out this story, and Mr. John Lee Walker, a merchant of Colnmbia, who had a talk with Dr. Simpson, says there is no doubt as to its truthfulness. Here is the story, as related: On the Tennessee side lives a man who is in fairly good circumstances, who had a sale of all his stock, household goods and other articles one day last week, the sale amounting to about $1,500 or 32,000. It was a cash sale and the moneyhad not been removed from the house. About dark a man who travels over the country, selling preparatory medicine, reached tne house to lodge for the night, he having frequently stopped with the family. He was told that the house was torn up, that everything in it but a few things had "been sold that day, and it was impos sible for them to comfortably lodge him. He told them that he could not get anywhere elae and that he would go upstairs and sleep on a pallet. He was told that if he' would be satisfied to spend the night in that way, it would be all right with them. About that time another man rode up to the house and asked the man, the head of the family, to go fox hunting. The man answered that he could not leave the house under the circumstances. The medicine man, not suspecting anything wrong, told him to go hunting, that he would be upstairs and would protect his wife and daughter. He went and at a very late hour the medicine man heard a terrible commotion below, and also the screams of women. He reached for his revolver, and when he got in the lower room, two black men were choking the man's wife and daughter and cuffing them about the floor. He fired and killed what he supposed two negro men, but upon examination they proved to be white women blacked, one of them the wife of the man who called for his friend to go hunting and the other one the wife of another Notice.

Apparently nothing in Carruthers' safe had been disturbed by the Intruder, and the engineer is puzzled. He learns of the abduction of Molly and her father, and from an accomplice of Chambers finds out where Bowyer Is lurking. He sets out alone to save the girl he loves.

"G d, you've led me a chase, Molly! Hardest I've ever had; but I knew I'd get you In the end." "When do you wish me to marry you?" asked Molly In a whisper. Bowyer threw back his head and laughed. "Now you're talking," he answered. "That's the point I was coming to. I'm a business man, and I'm used to paying what I have to for what I want. But I've been thinking that when two people are agreed on the same thing, and there's no way out of it unless you want the old man to swing why, It mightn't be necessary for you and me to get married assault. Together they carried Wilton through into u room behind. Outside it was quite light; a gust of wind camf through an open window and fanned the flames to fury. With a roar the fire leaped up the outer walls, and the whole front of the camp was ablaze. Molly scrambled to the sill, clung there, and dropped. The .factor, leaning out, lowered Wilton's body. And he himself dropped to the ground beside the girl. As he dropped she perceived, without realizing It, that he had used both arms and legs. The paralysis had left him.

For an instant the girl misunderstood. Then she leaped to her feet, her eyes biasing. "Get out of my way, Tom Bowyer! If you try to stop me I'll murder you 1" she screamed. She ran round behind the divan, snatched up the empty rifle, and, as Bowyer followed her, brought down the stock with all her strength. Had it struck his skull It would have knocked him unconscious. But In the nick of time he leaped aside, and It fell across the muscles of his neck and shoulders. With a howl of pain he wrenched the weapon from her hands. He beat her across the face again and again with his fists. He seized her by the hair, twining It In his hand, and, forcing her head back, put his hands over her mouth. She tried with all the strength she jail-yar- d hec-eye- bunk-house- s, red-face- d, red-haire- possessed to pry his hands away ; the red and swollen face that leered into her own seemed to fill all space, like a huge, evil sun. With all the strength that remained in her she tore at the red hand over her mouth, and bit into it until her assailant yelled with pain. His grasp on her throat loosened for an instant She drew in a deep gasp of air. Then she saw that the door was open. Hackett was in the room. He was shouting to Bowyer, who released the girl, stood up, and in answer. The outlaw was tugging frantically at his arm. There came the plunge of a heavy body against the door of the camp. Hackett half-conscio- yelled sprang forward, and fell sprawling back under a terrific blow. Wilton stood on the threshold. CHAPTER XVI Under Arrest Molly saw It all as If In a dream. n. love-makin- g ll The hideous' presence of her assailant was still with her. Then she saw Hackett and Bowyer pull pistols from their pockets. And each act was extended in her mind and vision through an eternity, as if it would never end. She sprang to the table, seized the oil lamp, and hurled it at their backs. It struck them fairly, sending them staggering before they had time to fire. Instantly the curtains before the windows were ablaze. A stream of burning oil shot across the floor to the divan, which began burning furiously, filling the room with smoke. Wilton and the two men closed. There followed a furious struggle. The combatants rolled over and over, stumbling against the burning divan, knocking over the chairs, crashing Into the walls. All the while McDonald hammered at the door and added his shouts to the uproar. Molly darted across the passage and released him. "They're murdering Will!" she cried. But the old man, staggering out, only shouted distractedly. Molly ran 'back. Hackett had Wilton by the throat, and, as she entered the room, Bowyer wrenched himself free, raised his pistol, and brought the butt crashing down on Wilton's head. Wilton toppled back Into the blazing oil. Bowyer aimed, " up his arm, and the shot went w,ild. Bowyer turned upon Molly with a ghastly grin. .

Well, boy, I was lying, I was trying ye, Will, and ye've made good; and I want to say" the old man's voice almost failed him "I want to say the money's yours to meet that note when it falls due, and I I want ye to know this when ye're in trouble, and not when ye're out of It and all the world's slapping ye on the back and cheering ye, and and d n it, I'm going to get ye out of here a free man, or my name ain't Betts !"

D you suppose I don't know that, when I gave you the combination, just to help Will, that you put those checks there? Let me tell the truth on the witness stand!" she pleaded, standing before him with clasped hands, and the tears raining down her cheeks. "Tell the truth? You must be mad!" he shouted. what" She Let Her Head Fall Against Jim's Shoulder, Sobbing Uncontrollably. "If the jury knew that, they'd acquit him. It could be arranged. I'd say I gave the combination to Lee ChaAgain Bowyer began to be afraid of Kitty ; but this time It was her stupidity he feared. And he saw that this was the occasion to let loose one of his habituated rages. He seized her hands in his, one in each, and twisted them until she screamed with the pain. "Let's understand each other, Kitty j Bostock!" he hissed in a furious voice. "I'll take up your proposition and show you what it means. Listen I First, you'll break your solemn covenant with me. Dishonest, you think? The sort that's made between people every day. I've played fair with you. And you'll play fair with me, or you'll lose your fortune every penny of it That's first. "Second, so surely as you go Into with such a story I'll the witness-bosay you He. I'll say he was your lover. I'll say that he killed Joe at your instigation because you wanted to be rid of him. I'll say that you went to Big Muskeg and lived there, almost next door to him. I'll bring forward a workman who saw you two together, kissing on the swamp one evening. I'll swear It's a concocted story made up by you to free your paramour. What sort of figure do you think you'll cut In th witness-bothen, Kitty Bostock?" Bowyer had calculated rightly. Up on a woman like Kitty, petted and spoiled from birth, the astounding fact of physical violence comes as a stunning shock that breaks down the soul's resistance. It Is only on repetition that the reaction comes. And Bowyer calculated rightly again. "Kitty Bostock," he said gently, "I promise you that he shall be freed. I have the means, the influence, the power. I know he didn't murder Joe. Keep your head, and all shall be well. I swear it. Do you believe me?" She looked at him as if he had hypnotized her. "Yes, I believe you," she answered. "iso sureiy as you speaK one worn, he'll hang. Keep quiet, and he shall be saved. Promise me you'll say nothing!" "Oh. I'll say nothing," wailed Kitty, wringing her hands. "I promise you. I see. Yes, I understand now." And she went out of the house with her head low, dubious, and yet with the sure conviction that Bowyer could save Wilton. Bowyer could save him, but nobody else could do so. She would trust him, because there was nobody else to trust. Between the house and the station, Kitty grew conscious of an old man walking beside her, trying to speak to her. Absorbed in her thoughts, she did not know how long he had been there. Suddenly she realized that this was Jim Betts. She shrank back aghast looking at him with eyes wide with fear. Jim nodded and smiled. "It's all right; don't be afeared of me, Mrs. Bostock," he said. "You're mighty worried about Will, ain't you now. I guess we all are. Won't you go to Mr. Payne and tell him what you x x mbers" plexltles about a month before The date set for the trial when Jim Betts and Kitty came to his office. Kitty sobbed out her story, while Payne listened In utter amazement "Why did you do this, Mrs. Bostock?" he asked, when he had heard her to the end. "Because I love Will and wanted to help him," she answered. "You are willing to tell this story in just as you've told It the witness-box to me?" . "I will!" cried Kitty. "If It will save Will If It's needed to save him." As the day of the trial drew nearer Payne knew Will's case was desperate. Public opinion was Inflamed against him, and Bowyer's skillful campaign had borne rich fruits. Without animus, but in the resolve to clear his own reputation for laxity, Quinn had worked up the case until each link appeared complete. Andersen, who followed the Indian witnesses, testified reluctantly that he had overheard Wilton request the pseudo policemen to delay their journey to Clayton, as he did not wish Joe Bostock's death to be known, for business reasons, until some time later. Tliere followed Papillon and Jean Passepartout, who stated that they had been told by the outlaw, Hackett, that Wilton had mnrdered Joe Bostock. Having already come to the same opinion, and being afraid of having the guilt laid to them, they had decided to run away. Suddenly there came a buzz of excitement In the court room. All eyes were turned toward the crown attorney, at whose side stood Bowyer himself; and It was evidently the intention of the prosecution to call him to the stand. Payne's eyes, attracted upward suddenly, saw Kitty in her widow's black, seated in the front row of the gallery, her eyes fixed In terror upon the newcomer. And, as if drawn by the force of her will, Bowyer looked up, and Payne saw the flicker of a smile cross Ills red, vulpine countenance. Bowyer, called, deposed that he had imown Joe Bostock intimately for several years. They had always been friendly, though often business rivals. "When did you first learn of his death?" asked the crown attorney. "Not for several days after." "But you met the accused at the Hudson's Bay company's store at Big Muskeg a few days after the event?" "Two days after." "What did he say to you about the tragedy?" "He told me Joe Bostock was not with him." "And lie said nothing about his death?" "No. I knew nothing about it for two or three days after that." "Was his demeanor that of a guilty rt r .3 cr: Confession. When Wilton was arrested Kitty had been stunned by the news. She had made frantic attempts to see him, but without success. Kitty knew on what the charge was built, and the consciousness that Wilton's freedom could only be purchased by her confession caused her an agony of shame and fear. Yet she would have purchased Wilton's freedom even at the cost of that humiliation, had she not known that she must inevitably lose him.

She would not let the dark thought in her heart come into consciousness. But she kneeled at the factor's side, her arms around him. "What is troubling you?" she pleaded. "Tell me." McDonald was shaking like an aspen. "It's naething, lass!" he babbled. "If I've repaid, it's for wrong that was done me and mine." "What have you done? Whom have you repaid? You must tell me." He clutched at her. "I warned him what would be if he came between me and mine. And when he sent Will Carruthers to steal you from me for he was at the back of that I shot him." "Whom?"

She left him, and, with a singular clarity of mind, as if there were nothing more to fear or hope, and no room for further feeling, she went to the door and looked out across the snowbound wilderness.

They rushed toward him, but Bowyer was quicker than they. And, as the single shot echoed through the courtroom Wilton saw that Molly was already mercifully unconscious. But he knew that all the past would become dimmed with her awakening. (THE END.) ht Washington, June 13.

There is not an idle man in our community. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Bryant arrived, last Thursday, from Colorado, to be with Mrs, Bryant's mother, who is dangerously ill. Lander Bryant and wife, who have been at the same place for over a year, returned a few days previous, on account of the serious illness of Lander's mother. On last Thursday morning Mr. John Bryant was found dead in bed. The end apparently had come about three o'clock. He was complaining a little when he retired for the night, but had been up the day before and ate-- a hearty dinner. Uncle John was near eighty eight years old. Had been blind for four years, but he could walk about the place and was able to be up most of the time. It is thought that excessive grief and f worry over the serious illness of his sister-in-lacaused his death. She was very kind and attentive to him and it was noticeable from the time she was taken sick that he was grieving. He went to her room every night before retiring, to inquire how she was getting along. Uncle John was a good man ,and will be greatly missed from the old. home where he was - born and spent his entire life. His nieces and nephews were, much devoted to him, but it is God's will to sever the most tender ties. If we all live faithful, those ties by and by. will be w re-unit- ed The Cause Of Most Trouble. A craze for speed a desire to "Get there" is the cause of nearly all motoring accidents. Sane driving not only helps to decrease the number of accidents but increases the life of a machine many tims.

Mrs. "Mattie Schsli. u And it in Farming Without the Drudgery Now-Pr- of FORDSON power makes more productive seed beds. Th tractor does its work so rapidly and does so much cf the heavy work of farming, that farm drudgery is passing. Expenses are reduced. Better crops are grown. On May 30, 1922, our dearly beloved friend and neighbor, Mrs. Mattie Scholl slipped away from us to be with us no more here. We will see her smiling face nor hear her gentle voice no more, and our hearts ache with sadness when we think of In the bringing about of this new era, the Oliver No. 7 Flow has been the working partner of the Fordson. It is so light running and so scientifically designed that its work has made it a reputation enjoyed by no other tractor plow. It is extremely easy to handle. Depth is adjusted by moving a lever that operates a jack. So easy is this done that most drivers do net stop or slow down to make a change in the plowing depth. her being gone. Then a sweet consolation comes to us. Some dav we can be with her in that beautiful home prepared for those like Mattie. She was kind and good to every body. Greatly missed from this community, where she had only liv ed a little more than three years. Her maiden name was Parson. She was born Feb. 27, 1892, and partly reared at Keltner. Her parents moved to Columbia, where she spent her young womanhood. July 19, 1914, she was united in marriage to Mr. Meldrom Scholl. To this union were born two children, one died in infancy, the other one survives. Much sympathy is felt for the lonely husband and little boy. Beside the e an ag- - a The power lift is tripped by simply touching a rod which is so convieniently placed that the driver need not turn his head to operate it. There is no side draft because the plow is in perfect alignment with the tractor. To farm the Fordson way means so small an investment that it is within easy reach of every farmer. Come in and see the Oliver No. 7 gang and you, too, will decide to farm the Fordson way. CO. THE BUCHANAN-LYON ed mother, two sisters and four brothers and a number of nieces and nephews are left, and the only words of comfort in this time of sorrow is that we believe Mattie is safe in the arms of Jesus and we can go to her. In Sept-- , 1908, she united with thjs church. She loved Christian her Bible and read it a great deal. She loved Sunday school and attended as long a3 she could. We never knew a more industrious woman. Kept busy as long as she could sit up. Though she had been in peor health for several months, all were shocked at her going so soon, as she was attending her. household duties until about one week before she died, when they took her to her brother's home in Columbia and she was not able to get back to her home at Roy. On May 31, after funeral service conducted by Rev. P. M. Bryant, on the lawn of Mr. Jeff White, where many friends had gathered, her remains were conveyed juct opposite the dwelling on a little mound and placed by her little baby's grave. We left the grave covered with beautiful flowers. Home is sad and lonely, Since wife and mother past away. But God's home is more lovely, And His will we must obey. - rStcp On , 'er, pMM0to -i Kid!
