closely watched Orskoff The Russian was deeply thinking his brow knitted in perplexity Stop he commanded suddenly as Harvey reached him again You sell windmills To no one save those whoJ I employ you

your answer to the problem you have sot out to solve and I will give you the plan I have thought upeand down the deck It seemed to Irons growingtolder looking each moment Again the feverish eyes and working lips It came to an end at last With a sigh as if exhausted Orskoff dropped into the chair by the side of Irons Well I have fought the fight he said wearily And won asked Harvey No God knows it is no victory 1 have lost My patriotism goes down before my love I am a Russian I know the Russian cruelties to those who defy the czar I know the pitiless rule that breaks the hearts and destroys the lives of those who even permit a culprit to escape Knowing thisknow ing the punishment the disgrace the horror of treacheryI have resolved to become n traitor A traitor What nonsense I Yes n traitor to the czar You and will soon be under the same condemnation We will go together to the very throne of Bokhara if necessary and rescue those we love or die in the attempt It is settled I will not turn back I CHAPTER XVIII A CONTRACT WITH A HODDEN CHIEF ARVEY broke the spell of Silence H I thought you would see daylight Now that we agree let us go on and plan We must not lose sight of the tact that we are deal ing with unknown quantities We have method of learning Just where the girls are We must use measures that will assist us What was your idea when you spoke of becoming a traitor I become a traitor the moment I give you your liberty and accompany you upon the proscribed ground of Bo khara Yon must go even further than that Wo must use the robbers Palpak I must at least send him and his brothers to Tlflls You will then throw aside the one stall that can assist us over the diffi cultyWhat use can the robbers be to us This fellow Palpak is chief of a clan called Zannucks who hate the ameer and all those who are faithful to him overheard them talking in the cave It seems the ninecr levies such exorbitant tuxes that the Zannncks cannot pay He tuxes everything wives children cattle That is the reason the chief seeks to rob the ameer and ills people to reimburse the Zannucks Palpal would not hesitate to help us by helping us he could work injury the ameer Grant the robbers their Let them tape their booty to people on condition that they as us in rescuing the girls Set free robbers who have attacked Russian paymasters You said that you would not turn back Now you ore trying to turn two ways one toward TitUs the other to ward Bokhara It will not do If you wish to accomplish anything in this affair you must go the whole figure stake all and win or lose That is the way I do business What Is your plan 7 Have Paliwk brought here and let ul talk with him in a straightforward businesslike way Any man will help another if he can also benefit himself by doing soII leave it to you Your head Is tullIplans wliilc mine is simply taken upIwith thinking of poor Koura I think of Alma as touch as you do Bourn But simply thinking will not rescue them We must act and act quickly Orskoff sent for Ncvlsky The lieutenant was patting the bridge eager to off He could not understand why the captain did not hurry to Tiflls with the prisoners instead of wasting the time chatting in an apparently friendly way with one of themILieutenant have the chief robberII brought to me said the captain As Palpak was being led toward them Orskoff said to Harvey Conduct the negotiations I will ogres to anything you plan Orskoff ordered the irons removed from the robber When the three were alone Harvey said to PalpnkII We have had you brought here to have a businesslike talk You appro your situation I suppose I am a prisoner of the czar He will perhaps kill meii Just so And all of your treasure the stealings of many months is on- board this boatIYes to enrich a Russian officer My 1 people can starve The ameers taxII bo paid or twenty of our best men and women must go to Bokhara It is wrongIOf course it is wrong Wo know people hate the ameer and that j the ameer Is cruel It was a strange I that took me to that island of Ping Shong You saved my life for my brothers I were mad with wine Your future courso will show wheth I k did well Let me explain hOw I i h J came to the island Then followed a detailed rehearsal of the story of Koura and Alma They are beautiful girls said Harvey as he concluded One Is to be the wife of the captain the other Is to ho my wife Why do you tell me this I am a prisonerBecause we want your assistance in rescuing these two girls from till men of Bokhara They are your eno mlos and you have sufficient reason to hato them But I do not love the Russla moreTills is not a question of loving the Russians I saved your life did I not I would do anything for you Suppose you are set free and the treasure is restored to you The onlyI return we ask is that you give us all the assistance in your power to recover the two young women Do you mean that the Russian will permit me to depart in peace to myI people and take with me the treasure that I stole 7 Yes to rescue the young girls twill re do that The captain has promisedI 1L Do you agree put In OrskofT anx iously I am not a fool That means you agree of course said Harvey The ameer is the sliest rascal in Asia but our united brains ought to be able to outwit him First we must figure out where the girls probably are now Where was the ameers boat when you saw it asked Palpal eagerly I cannot say I drifted all day and half the night before I reached the fIs land It went in the same direction I driftedThey were going to Slloon What is Slloon The most Important port on the Bo kharan shore It is not a Zannuck vllI I IJ n II r 1I Iv r We have Lad you brought here to have a businesslike talk lage nor do the people like the ameer They are for the greater part exiles from Khiva Then they will not fight for the ameerNo nor against him They wish only to be let alone How long would it take the boat t reach Slloon Two days By this time they are at Slloon and we could not overtake then as the finest camels of the ameer would bo in waiting for them with n guard of his beat soldiers- Is it not possible that a caravan of rich goods will take advantage of this escort and go to Bokhara It would be so There would be some delay getting startedThe nmeers soldiers would bo afraid to linger Then what can be done Pnlpak We put the matter into your hands Excellert sirs you promise mo much One of you saved my life the other a Russian officer releases me and I can take the treasure to my starving people I am grateful I will do all I can to assist you in winning back the young women From Siloon the road to Bokhara is winding I runs through what Is called the Siloon pass We are now In what is known as the Kharaboglmz A short sail from lucre is a small village on the coast be longing to my people By going there and taking the trail over the mountains we can teach the Siloon pass at a point where it will be four days journey for the caravan It will take us only three days Good said Harvey What then 7 The Zannucks have many causes tto hate the soldiers of the nmeer The will have fine camels and horses tllero will also be many valuables going to Bokhara If there is to be a wedding of a prince there will be great feast hug and the nmeer will distribute gifts Some of these will be In the caravan My people will foflpw me to the Slloon passBy the Kharaboghaz do you mean the Scythian gulf asked Harvey Yes It Is what we call the gulf Then our plan is clear Orskoff you and I will go with Palpak In his boat to this village of his people and ac company his warriors to the pass Send Nevisky to Siloon with all speed If ho finds the caravan there let bltii attack and rescue the girls If the caravan has gone let him wait there for our return Wo must go back td Slloon If we rescue the girls or ther will bo no way of leaving the coast I will explain the plan to Nevisky said Orskoff Nevlsky listened with many misgiv ings A Russian officer io release pris v u- l 1 r 1 oners in tills manner anti to set foot 18ling but obey The treasure was placed in Pnlpaks sailing vertol and tho four robbers with Harvey and Orskoff the latter fully armed front the stores of the gunboat

to loop at the strangers lPJSl who seemed to be of a race they looked upon as enemies yet their chief Pnlpak treated these men as friends Pnlpak was a tills who gave no explanations of his nets and when he demanded horses for himself his brothers and his friends they were at once forthcoming Domltan the brother who had been so eager to kill Palpak was morose and showed but little favor to the guests The latter confident that their plans would be successful treated him considerately They thought not of the risk they ran In going with robbers for escort into a country from which few travelers had ever return ed The moving power was love and love laughs at danger From the village a winding path led from the low shore laud to a distant range of hills Along this their prog ress was rapid but arriving nt tho hills they found n rugged rocky road over which traveling was slow The small horses of the Zannucks were sturdy animals and went unshod over the Jagged stones that covered the nar row path The natives stared at them in amaze meat A Russian officer in uniform accompanying their chief on terms of friendship was a scene they had never contemplated Some thought Orskoff WitS a prisoner though he did not net like one Harvey seemed actually to be the leader Hidden among great knolls and se questered In fertile valleys were little villages seemingly devoted to peaceful pursuits Flocks of the world famous sheep the skins of whose lambs are sent to Persia where they are mode into garments or cured and sent to Europe and America were browsing on the hillsides All the herdsmen bore arms One would have a rifle another wore a belt In which two or three pistols were thrust some carried the old time spear Their garb was most picturesque The turbaned Turk the Jaunty Clrcas sign the Jacketed Greek none of these could match the gay dress of these hill menThe road grew rougher and more dif ficult They climbed laboriously stop ping often to give their horses a breath ing spell On either side the Jagged rocks rose to great heights and the mountains stood majestically about themNo wonder these people cannot be subdued said Harvey Nature ha built for them n fortress that no guns can butter down The trouble Is said Orskoff that nature does this only where n fortress Is not necessary When it cornea t guarding a city placing a battlement upon a passage between two seas na ture unity be gracious enough to bestow n rock or two but they must be fash toned by the hand of man to suit the- o purpose of defense The reason Is not that nature p is grudging sold Harvey

metropolis whose profits are reckoned often by the hundreds of thcusands of dollars every year But the country editor lives in and is a part of his community His virtue is not so much in what he

to cancel the excise license of any company which in substance sold goods on tae stipulation that theI dealer should handle the goods of no other concern The ellect of this is evident The American Tobaccc Company will be forced to surrender their license to do business in Canada or will havo to abandon their most pernicious I system of exclusive contracts The press at largo has taken the matter up both pro and con and the1 consensus of opinion seems to be that in so far as tnA act operates to check the American Tobacco Company it is a most commendable one and I seemingly at least was effective The critics view it only from the standpoint of danger to any govern ment which places so great a power and one so fraught with opportunity to do justice into the hands of oneI who as is

The tobacco trust has been one of the most greedy and ruthless in Its methods of trying to establish mono poly and kill competition Its favorite weapon has been bargains with dealers handling its products giving fav orable and profitable terms on condi tion that they agree to handle no goods of other producers By this means it has sought through large capital and widely extended ortran iz ation to shut competing companies out of the best markets and PO far as possible out of all markets and ruin their business It is largely by such means that it has crippled rivals and torced them to

councils were held and judgment given and the graves of this people were found In groves they always being burled under the roots of a tree This all was a result of tho superstition that their gods lived In those trees In the linden tree Berchta dwelt a benign spirit who took charge of tune babies and rocked their cradles when the nurses fell asleep in the oak Douar the thunder god in the willows all sorts of spirits t+ +aprt 1 lu the elder trees the dwarfs Whenever the festivals of these gods were celebrated their trees were decorated with lights wreaths and questen tas sels and

boasts and on the back of each camel sat a Scotch highlander In his kilt In 1845 Sir Churlen Napier fhad a camel corps in Sludh and in one J day he marched seventyfive miles defeated a brigand chief and marched home again In 1878 the British used camels against the Afghans and the government paid for i 0000 camels that died In those campaigns Many of these were driven to death by their owners In

EXPLOSIVE FORCE t The Way Great Masts of Ships Have Been Shattered When j f f Lightning Does Wonders f i t ONE BOLT HAS MUCH POWER I IIneexplosive force of lightning act dead wood is not as a rule so as when living trees are struck J though Sir William Harris shows that the masts of ships of the line three I feet in diameter and 110 feet long bound with Loops of iron half un inch l thick and five Inches wide tho whole weighing about eighteen tons have been in many instances torn asunder and the hoops of iron scattered about tho decks It will be found as a rule that trees are struck by lightning far more often than are buildings even If the trees and buildings are close to gether This is partly because the trees are higher But there must probably be some un known reason not only for the fre i quency with which trees are struck but for the recurrence of such shocks in the case of particular trees or trees in the same locality The commonest form of Injury Is that the current passes down the bark of the tree stripping off the band wider or narrower from top to bottom Sometimes on an oak two or three of these lightning marks are seen evidently caused at different tunes There must be something In the form or situation or earth below the trees A which endangers it An Instance is f l quoted in Mr Andersons descriptive book of the Church of St Mary in Genoa which was frequently struck by lightning sometimes as often as twice a year It was noticed that the electric force always followed the same t track It was discovered later that the walls were clumped with iron and that the lightning had followed the patch In which the metal offered the greatest continuity destroying the zone betweenIf ground below the tree or builtII Ing is hard and dry the contact with the rarth In which tho lightning ex pans its force nnd disperses Is dUll cult mid the destruction of the object struck is likelyI to result This may explain the frequency with which n blasted tree Is seen extending its dead arms on the summit of sonic rocky cliff or peak The ground below it Is ftiVw dry and does not easily lead away the current Into the earth At the slime time thunderclouds undoubtedly tend to discharge or perhaps it would be safer to say that the trans mission front the cloud to tho earth more frequently takes place near i pieces of water and along the courses of rivers than elsewhere- In n park In one of the eastern coun ties of England there is a large lake The park contains more trees struck by Lfehtnlng than the whole of the rest of the estate Some miles away Is a road called locally the Lightning road i from the frequency with which accidents have occurred there either to fc trees hurH cattle or passengers In this park there recently occurred an In stance of the explosive effect In certain V circumstances not perfectly known 1 A very tall spruce probably 100 feet high was exploded from top to bot tom into pieces the size of the wood used in making chairs Every shred of bark was stripped from them and the wood looked as If It had been shredded up for tiring A similar Instance oc curred some years ago when an oak in tae grove below the foot of tho WhiteI lodge in Richmond park exploded un it1 der lightning shock rho bark flew off find simply disappeared In small patch es and the rest of thp tree was shattered into white fragments In these cases it is probable that the current sets up such a tremendous heat that all the sap in the tree Is converted into superheated steam which explodes The greater the heat tho more of tho cells In which moisture lies are ex pleded and the greater the destruction of the tissues of the tree As there is most moisture between the bark and the trunk the first and greatest explosion f takes place there Instantly drivf ing the bark away into space Frequently the explosion only takes place at that point As Sir Illram Maxim pointed out after the great explosion of Mont Pelee n very similar method is now used by the American manufacturers of wood pulp The Jogs of fir are placed in a strong chamber and there subjected to the action of superheated steam until the water in every cell is converted into explosive gas The chamber Is then opened and the log VMvV explodes converting Iteelf Into wood A powder London Spectator r iT THE FIRST SIGN Of Disfiguring Humors Use CUTICURA Every child born

the custom of dealing with drunkards said a Persian In our country when a man gels drunk we take him and nail him to the sidewalk driving the spikes through his ears Then when other people come along they spit In his face and kick him until he Is sober I think this method would do a great deal of good in America because you have more drunkenness than wo do There arc no saloons in Persia the chief beverage being homemade wine They dont even know what beer is Our officials have several ways o making prisoners confess to crimes said the Persian The favorite meth od Is to take them on a stand around which all the people of the town gather and then put out one eye If the crime is not very great an armI is cut off or a leg severed If it is only n trivial offense probably an ear is sac rificed Very often Innocent people arc subjected to these torments but it i cannot be helped The Persians very seldom hang a man for crime If he kills another ho is fined 15 and allowed to go If he I kills ten or a dozen and the people finally decide that he ought to bo put out of the way he is hanged But he is not hanged as they hang men in this country Hes hanged by the feet and a heavy weight is tied to his head Then he is allowed to die If tho acv cused prisoner Is a woman her hair IsI shorn from her head provided the of tense is a trivial one If it is a serious one she may be turned into a room filled with mad cats and be scratched to death Persian Jails are dark cellars and contain no furniture whatever Tho government doesnt feed prisoners this being left to friends of the accused If he happens to have no friends he will starve to death Oftentimes when food is brought by friends the keepers of the prison and the other officials appropriate it so the prisoners have to go hungry
