The meetings have been well attended, showing quite an interest by the church-goinpeople. The minister Is an interesting preacher and very zealous in his work. The meeting will continue this week, and those who have been attending are invited to continue coming and to bring others. One feature of the meeting is Rev. Taylor's singing. He has a very melodious voice and much of the story of Christ is given in the wording of the beautiful songs he renders. Remember, and attend the meetings day and night this week. Up to Monday sixteen had made professions of faith and three had joined the church. g -- People about Columbia beautify their lawns with flowers and keep the grass green, which shows that cultivated families reside in the residences whether they be large or small.

The fort is attacked, and only saved by the timely appearance of a party of Virginians. The leader of these is fatally wounded, but in his dying ments recognizes the fugitive youth as Ills son.

Yandell, with " Harry and Hugh, who have been permitted to visit the Sanders fort, overtake him. At the plantation the boy had left a note In which he gave the property, which Is his as the son of .Colonel Dale's older brother, to Barbara. CHAPTER VII. The party Is met by three Shawnees, who bring news to Erskine (whose Indian name is "White Ar- row) that his foster father, Kahtoo, is dying and desires him to come to the tribe and become- its chief. After a brief visit to the fort Erskine goes to the tribe. He finds there a white woman and her halfbreed daughter. Early Morn, and saves the woman from death. He tells Kahtoo he is with the Americans against the British. An enemy. Crooked Ughtning, overhears him. CHAPTER VTII. Kahtoo sends Erskine to a council where British envoys meet Indian chiefs.

Erskine accompanies the Clark expedition to Kaskaskia, which Is captured. The Indians in the expedition attempt tb overthrow Clark, but largely through Erskine the plot falls. The boy accompanies his foster father, Kahtoo, back to the tribe. Early Morn avows her love for him. The braves grunted approval.

Black Wolf fell heavily and Erskine was upon him with his own knife at his enemy's throat. "Stop them!" old Kahtoo cried sternly, but it was the terrified shriek of the white woman that stayed Erskine's hand. Two young braves disarmed the fallen Indian, and Kahtoo looked inquiringly at his adopted son. "Turn him loose!" Erskine scorned. VPCMVCjHM 'IV "IB "I have no fear of him.

From Inside presently came low, passionate pleading from the woman and an occasional sob from the girl. "And when an hour later, at dusk, Erskine turned upward toward the tent, the girl gave a horrified cry, flashed from the tent and darted for the high cliff over the river. "Catch her!" cried the mother. "Quick !" Erskine fled after her, overtook her with her hands upraised for the plunge on the very edge (of the cliff, and half carried her, struggling and sobbing, back to the tent Within the girl dropped In a weeping heap, and with ber face covered, and the woman turned to Erskine, agonized.

If Erskine would out give nis promise, ne woum never rise again from where he lay. Erskine shook his head and the old man sorrowfully turned his face. And yet Erskine lingered on and on at the village. Of the white worn- jan he had learned, little other than that she had been bought from another tribe and adopted by old Kahthe too; but It was plain that-sinc-e threatened burning of her she had been held in high respect by the whole tribe. He began to wonder about her and whether she might not wish to go back to her own people. He had never talked with her, butvhe never moved about the camp that he' did not feel her eyes upon him. And Early Morn's big soft eyes, too, never seemed to leave him. She brought him food, she sat at the door of his tent, she followed him about the village and bore herself openly as his slave. At last old Kahtoo, who, would not give up his great hope, pleaded with hlm'to marry her, and while he was talking thetglrl stood at the door 6t the tent and interrupted them. Her mother's eyes were growing dim, she said."

Erskine put both hands on her shoulders and looked dqwn Into her eyes. She trembled, and when his arms went about her she surged closer to him and the touch of her warm, supple body went through him like fire. And then with a triumphant smile she sprang back.

Probably half of the suggestions might prove valuable and the people who are running the town would be glad to get them. "The plain truth of the matter is that every citizen of the town has or should have a hand in the way the is operated. Far too many of them feel that when they have elected a mayor or city council they have dispensed with their full duty. Those people are elected simply in order that the will of the people may be carried out not in order that the town may be run as a mere handful of men dictate. 'These men you have elected do not claim to be in the best methods of governing a town. They are there to carry out the wisest of the suggestions they receive'. Naturally when they receive any they have to fall back on their own ideas. But they would be only too glad to get ideas from every citizen, so hereafter, instead of saying, "Believe me, if I were running this town" just realize that it is part of your job to have a hand in the running and tell the right person'what you would do."

Probably the best reason I have heard is that the party leaders are not trying to give the people what tliey desire and need, but rather meet their obligations to the men who put up Harding's enormous campaign fund and hoping, to be able to mollify the dissatisfied public on some issues which they will encourage to come to the front in the hope that more damaging ones can thus be kept in the rear. Strangely enough, it appears to some, they are willing, .as evidenced by their action in having Secretary Hughes revive the the, Newberry scandal, to have that as an issue, for most men regard the seating of a man in the Senate after conviction ot bribery as a very serious stain on the party guilty of snch action. There can be but one conclusion as to this, as ably pointed out by chairman Hull of the Democratic National Committee and by Senator Pomerene, and that is that the Republican leaders are choosing the least of several evils. They' doubtless be leive that many men will be of many minds about a question of moral turpitude, and that many men will be of many mindsabout a question of 'moral turpitude, and that most strong party men will not be driven from their party by even a highly questionable performance done for highly questionable performance done for party supremacy, hence they would rather risk the Newberry issue than to fight it out on the grert increases in the cost of living surely to come from the enactment of the Wgh tariff bill, for they well know that the most sensitive nerve in the averaee man's political makeup is the one that reaches his pocketbook. This is the issue they fear the most. After that comes a year and a half of Harding hard times, accentuated by four big strikes, which the administration has utterly unable to handle. In truth, their settlement seemed to be actually delayed and ham pered by the very presence of the President in the equation; his efforts seemed to be resented by both sides, with neither side willing that he should b the mediator.

Probably true at one time, but now men read and think and every time a man sweetens his coffee he can reflect on the knowledge that the price of the sugar he is using has been increased a third by the tariff tax placed upon it in order to force him indirectly to help enrich others. And what is true of sugar is true of a hundred articles which enter into his ever-da- y life.
