Out of town stores and mall order houses do not pay a dollar of taxes in our town. Theyand their employees do not support our churches, they do not deposit in our banks, nor do they contribute in any way to the support of our local institutious, as Columbia merchants do. How long could our town continue to progress or attract new residents if it had an inefficient, backward, deserted business section. If the people withdraw their support from.our business establishments, it would not take long for the town to deteriorate into a country village. They are receiving liberal support from the residents of Columbia and vicinity, but there are a number who, from thoughtless and habit, presist in going out of town or ordering from mail order houses, those things they could buy just as satisfactorily and as economially right here in town. We do not ask anyone to buy anything that they can get elsewhere to better advantage, but thoy do ask you to let them serve you, feeling confident that no other store in another city can give better qualities, wider assortment or fairer prices.

He saw his chances plain as he lay beneath that gray sky. Even now, perhaps, Simon was upon them. Only two little rifle shells remained with which to combat him, and he doubted that his wounded arm would hold the rifle steady. There were weary, innumerable miles between them and any shelter, and only the terrible, trackless forest lay between. Then why not He still and let the curtains fall? This was an easy, tranquil passing, and heaven alone knew what dreadful mode of egress would be his If he rose to battle further. All the argument seemed on one side. But high and bright above all this burned the Indomitable flame of his spirit. To rise, to fight, to struggle on. Never to yield until the Power above decreed! To stand firm, even as the pines themselves. The dominant greatness that Linda had found in this man rose in him, and he set his muscles like iron. He shook off the mists of the frost in his brain. Quickly he knelt by Linda and shook her shoulders In his hands. She opened her eyes. "Get up, Linda," he said gently '"We have to go on." She started to object, but1 a message in his eyes kept her from His own spirit went Into her. He helped her to her feet. "Help me roll the blankets," he commanded, "and take out c:.ough food for breakfast. We can't stop to eat It here. I think we're In sight of the main trail; whether we can find It In the snow I don't know. We must get farther Into the thickets before we stop to eat." They were strange figures in the snow flurries as they went to work to roll the blankets into a compact bundle, i The food she had taken from their stores for breakfast he thrust into the pocket of his coat; the rest, with the blankets, she tied swiftly on the horse. They unfastened the animal and for a moment she stood holding the reins while Bruce crept back on the hillside to look for the trail. The snow swept round thm, and they felt the, lowering menace of the cold. And at that instant those dread spirits that rule the wilderness, jealous then and jealous still of the intrusion of man, dealt them a final, deadly blow. Its weapon was just a sound a loud crash In a distant thicket and a pungent message on the wind that their human senses were too blunt to receive. The horse suddenly snorted loudly, then reared up. Bruce saw as In a tragic dream the girl struggle to hold him ; he saw her pulled down Into the snow and the rein jerked from her hand. Then the animal plunged, wheeled and raced at top speed away into the snow flurries. Some terror that as yet they could not name had broken their control of him and In an InstanU taken from them this one last hope of safety. horse we might make some sort of shelter in the snow and last out until we can see our way and get our bearings. You don't know of any shelter any cave or cabin where we might build a fire?" "No. There are some In the hills, bufrwe can't see our way to find them." "I know. I Bhould have thought of that. And you see, we can't build a fire here everything Is wet, and the snow Is beginning to whirl so we couldn't keep it going. If we should stagger on all day In this storm and this snow, we couldn't endure the night." He smiled again. "And I want you to climb a tree and stay there until I come back." She looked at him dully. "What's the use, Bruce? You won't come back. You'll chase the thing until you die I know you. You don't know when to give up. And if you want to come back you couldn't find the way. I'm going with you." "No." Once more she started to disobey, but the grave displeasure In his eyes restrained her. "It's going to take all my jtrength to fight through that snow I must go fast and maybe life and death will have to depend on your strength at the end of the trail. You must save it the little you have left. Since I must take the rifle to shoot the horse if I can't catch him you must climb a tree. You know why." "Partly to hide from Simon if he comes this way. And partly " "Because there's some danger in she gaied at hjm In horror; and already he flurries had almost obscured his gray figure. Desperately she tried to call his attention from the tracks.

As always, In the nearlng presence of a foe, his rage grew upon him. lranJnMant eechless' Sobbing, Linda swung down from the tree. She had no conscious plan of aid to her loer. She only had a blind instinct to seek him, to try to warn him of his danger, and at least to be with him at the death.

She too struck off Into the t canyon. storm-swep- that thicket beyond!" he interrupted her. "The horse's terror was real besides, you heard the sound. It might be only a puma. But It might be the Killer. Swing your arms and struggle all you can to keep the blood flowlmj. I won't be gone long." He started to go, and she ran after him with outstretched arms. "Oh, And the forest gods who dwell somewhere in the region where the pine tops taper into the sky, and who pull the strings that drop and raise the curtain and work the puppets that are the players of the wilderness dramas, saw a chance for a great and tragic jest In this strange chase over the snow. The destinies of Bruce, Linda and the Killer were already converging on this trail that all three followed the path that the runaway horse made In the snow. Only one of the great forces of the war that had been waged at Trail's End was lacking, and now he came also. Simon Turner had ridden late into the night and from before dawn ; with remorseless fury he had goaded on his exhausted horse, he had driven him with unpltying strength through coverts, over great rocks, down Into rocky canyons In search of Bruce and Linda, and now, as the dawn broke, he thought that he had found them. He had suddenly come upon the tracks of Bruce's horse In tne snow. If he had encountered them farther back, when the animal had been running wUdly, he might have guessed the truth and rejoiced. No man would attempt to ride a horse at a gallop through that trallless stretch. But at the point he found the tracks most of the horse's terror had been spent, and It was walking leisurely, sometimes lowering Its head to crop off the shrubbery. The trail was comparatively g fresh, too; or else the snow would have already obscured It. He thought that his hour of triumph was near. But It had come none too soon. And fast-fallin- Simon out of looked and saw passion-fille- d eyes it "Oh, Bruce," She Cried, "Como Back Soon Soon. Don't Leave Me to Die Alone." Bruce," she cried, "come back soon soon. Don't leave me to die alone. I'm not strong enough for that " He whirled, took two paces back, and his arms went about her. He had forgotten his injury long since. He kissed her cool lips and smiled into her eyes. Then at once the flurries hid him. The girl climbed up into the branches of a flr tree. In the thicket beyond a great gray form tacked back and forth, trying to locate a scent that a second before he had caught but dimly and had lost. It was the Killer, and his temper was lost long ago In the whirling snow. His anger was upon him, partly from from the constant, gnawing pain of three bullet wounds in his powerful body. Besides, he realized the presence of his old and greatest enemy bring death with it. He realized his position fully. The storm was steadily developing Into one of those terrible mountain blizzards in which, without shelter, no human being might live. He was far from his home, he had no blankets, and he could not find his way. Yet he would not have turned hack If he could. The securing of the document by which Bruce could take the great estates from him was only a trifle now. He believed wholly within his own soul that the wilderness without his aid would do his work of hatred for him; and that by no conceivable circumstances could Bruce and Linda find shelter from the blizzard and live through the day. He could find their bodies in the spring if he by any chance escaped himself, and take the agreement from them. But It was not enough. He wanted also to do the work of destruction. Even his own death If It were only delayed until his vengeance was wreaked could not matter now. In all the ancient strife and fury and ceaseless war of the wild through which he had come, there was no passion to equal this. The Killer was content to let the wolf kill the fawn for him. The cougar will turn from Its warm, newly slain prey, in which its white fangs have already dipped, at the sight of some great danger In the thickets. But Simon could not turn. Death lowered Its wings upon him as well as upon his enemy, yet the fire in his heart and the fury In his brain shut out all thought of It. He sprang off his horse better to examine the tracks, and then stood, half bent over, In the snow.

She had been jerked down by the plunging horse, and she had not yet completely risen. But the sight of her slight figure, her raised white face, her clasped hands, and the remorseless snow of the wilderness about her moved Bruce to his depths. He saw her but dimly in the snow flurries, and she looked as if she were in an attitude of prayer. He came rather slowly, and he even smiled a little. And she gave hima wan, strange little smile in return. "We're down to cases at last," he said, with a rather startling quietness of tone. "You see what It means?" She nodded, then got to her feet. "We can walk out, If we are let alone and given time; It 4sn't that we are obliged to have the horse. But our blankets are' on its back, and this , storm Is steadily becoming a blizzard.

Thus the victory at the polls on November 7 will prove the beginning of organization and effort that will culti mate ina still larger and more significant triumph for the Democratic Party in 1924. The special session and the subsequent regular session of the Republican Congress promise to be Democratic assets of the first order. The prospect of a new investigation into the election of Truman H. Newberry has prompted him to resign his seat in the Senate. In the place of Senator Townsend, Michigan e has chosen a Democrat, N. Ferris. Deieat or indefinite delays appears to be the coming fate of President Harding's pet project, the ship bonus bill. It was Democratic opposition that makes its failure almost a foregone conclusion, and which saves the country from the results of a ruinous precedent The public can not help be grateful for this escape from Laskerism, and individual Democrats csn not but rejoice in ' the leadership under which this escape is accomplished. Democratic governors will take office in twenty states thirteen y of them in the North on 1. This eloquent reminder of Democratic success in tNovem- ber will serve also as an inspiration for Democratic victory two .'.years ,hence.

That these blessings are real and abundant no intelligent person can deny. There has been an infinite amount of misery and suf fering in this old world of ours during the last ten years and that misery and suffering have touched America but lightly. The war that shook the world did not reach our shores. There have been no famines here. Our enormous resources are amply sufficient to support our people. Compared with any other part of the world, without a single exception, America has seemed in Monipelier. i Columbia. Kv. The corn crop is about all in the crib. We have about an average crop. The wheat crop presents a sorry prospect for a good yield. Too much dry, cool weather for proper germination and growth. Mr. K. W.

It is proper then that we should give thanks for the favors that have been bestowed upon us, and not improper to ask if we are showing the right kind of spirit in our prosperity. In some ways the answer to this question As must be yes; in Others, no. a people, Americans are generous. We opened our purses for the relief of Belgium now eight years ago, and we have been giving money freely to aid European distress ever since. This we.do as individuals. As a nation, however, 'we have taken the position that we are not con cerned in the readjustment of Europe, and because of our aloofness that readjustment has been delayed.

He could not ask mercy of this man, either directly or indirectly, any more than the pines asked mercy of the snows that covered them.

It seems all the more fitting that we should meet Just as we have at the very brink of death and Death should be waiting at the end for the one of us who survives. It's so like this d d, terrible wilderness In which we live." Bruce gazed In amazement'. The dark and dreadful poetry of this man's nature was coming to the fore. The wind made a strange echo to his words a long, wild shriek as it swept over the heads of the pines. "Then why are you waiting?" Bruce asked. "So you can understand everything. But I guess that time Is here. There is to ba no mercy at the end of this fight, Bruce; I ask none and will give none. You have waged a war against me, you have escaped me many times, you have won the love of the woman I love and this Is to be my answer." His voice dropped a note, and he spoke more quietly. "I'm going to kill you, Bruce." tnaTlJK or us 1ST" Be- wheeled, a snarling, fighting monster,! with death for any living creature in the blow of his forearm, and lunged toward Simon again. It was the Killer at his grandest Srtnon had no chance to shoot his rifle. In the Instant that he would raise It those great claws and fangs would be upon him. He swung it as a club, striking again and again dodging the blows and springing aside in the second of tne Killer's lunges. He was fighting for his life, and no eye could bemean that sledjce-hamraer 1 Then he turned again and headed off slowly, deliberately, directly into the face of the storm. CHAPTER XXXI effort Simon himself seemed exalted, and for once it appeared that the grizzly had found an opponent worthy of his might. They were of one kind, and they seemed to understand each other. The lust and passion and fury of battle were upon them both. The scene harked back to the young days of the world, when man and beast battled for dominance. Nothing had changed. The forest stood grave and silent, just the same. The elements warred against them from the clouds that ancient persecution of which the wolf pack sings on the ridge at night, that endless strife that has made of existence a travail and a scourge. Man and beast and storm those three great foes were arrayed the same as ever. Time swung backyears. ward a thousand-thousanThe snow seemed to come from all directions in great clouds and flurries and streamers, and time after time It wholly hid the contestants from d The flurries almost immediately obscured the killer's form, and Bruce turned his attention back to Linda. 'It's the- end," he said quietly. "Why not here as well as anywhere else?" The horse on which was tied their scanty blankets was miles away by now; Its tracks were obscured ln the snow, and they could not And their way to any shelter that might be con"" cealed among the ridges. But before the question was finished, a. strange note had come Into his voice. It was as If his attention had been called from his words by something much more momentous. The truth was that It had been caught and held by a curious expression on the girl's face. All at once she sprang to her - Which Is Larger the Sun or a Cent The sun is the largest but you can hold the cent so close to your eye that yoll lose sight of the sun. Don't let a cheap price or a big can baking powder make you lose sight of quality. CALV MET The Economy "Perhaps she cried. there's a way yet A long, long chance, but maybe a way yet Get your rifle Simon's Is broken and come with me." Without waiting for him to rise she struck off into the storm, following the huge footprints of the bear. The man struggled with himself, summoned all that was left of his reserve supply of strength, and leaped up. He snatched his rifle from the ground where Simon had thrown It, and In an instant was beside her. Her cheeks were blazing. "Maybe It just means further torture," she confessed to him, "but don't you want to make every effort we can to save ourselves? Don't you want to fight till the last breath?" She glanced up and saw her answer In the growing strength of his face. Then his words spoke too.

The rifle cracked in the silence. And then there was a curious effect of tableau, a long second In which all three figures seemed to stand deathly still. The bear leaped fonvard, and It seemed wholly impossible to Linda that Bruce could swerve aside in time to avoid the blow. She cried out in horror as tne great paws whippea down in the place where Bruce had stood. But the man had been prepared for this very recoil, and he had sprung aside just as the claws raked him in tne sort glow of the have a little food, and wa more from the body of the grizzly when we need It.

"A moment ago an idea came to me It came so straight and sure it was as if a voice told me," she explained hurriedly. She didn't look at him again. She kept her eyes intent upon the great footprints in the snow. To miss them for a second meant, In that world of whirling snow, to lose them forever. "It was after the bear had killed Simon and had gone away. He acted exactly as if he thought of something and went out to do it exactly as If he had a destination in view. Didn't you see his anger seemed to die in him and he started "" as the slightest chance remains," he fslde "We bll?-zan- l? ik past In lack-fixsi- it off in the face of the storm. I've watched the ways of animals too long not to know that he had something In view. It wasn't food; he would have attacked the body of the horse, or even Simon's body. If he had just been running away or wandering, he would have gone with the wind, not against It. He was weakened from the fight perhaps dying and I think " He finished the sentence for her, breathlessly. 'That he's going toward shelter." "Yes. You know, Bruce the bears hibernate every year.

It would mean life and we could go on when the storm Is over." "You remember we have only one cartridge." "Yes, I know I heard you fire. And It's only a thirty-thirt- y at that. It's a risk as terrible a risk as we've yet run. But it's a chance." They talked no more. Instead, they walked as fast as they could into the face of the storm. They walked much more swiftly than the bear, and they could tell by the appearance of the tracks 'that they were but a few yards And the Killer would hunt no more Trail's End. At the end of that leap he fell, his great body quivering strangely In the snow. The lead had gone straight home where It had been aimed, and the charge itself had been mostly muscular reflex.

Then ajl at once she dropped them almost as If in supplication. But her voice had regained the old merry tune he had learned to love when she spoke again. "Bruce, have I got to do all the ask- J ing?" His answer was to stretch his great arms and draw her Into them. His laugh rang In the cavern. "Oh, my dearest I" he cried. The eyes lighted In his bronzed face. (tI ask for everything everything bold that I am ! And what I want worst this minute" "Yes?" j3 J behind him. They soon became aware that they were mounting a low ridge. They left the underbrush and emerged Into the open timber. And all at once Bruce, who now walked in front, paused with lifted hand, and pointed. Dim through the flurries they made out the outline of the bear. And Linda's inspiration had come true. There was a ledge of rocks just in front a place such as the rattlesnakes had loved fn the blasting sun of summer and a black hole yawned In its side. The aperture had been almost covered with the snow, and they saw that the great creature was scooping thicket No more would the herds fly Into stampede at the sight of his great shadow on the William Broah, the Chicago moonlit grass.
