As a result ot the able presentation of the Truth twelve persons have made a start In the Chris tian life and as many have been roe claimed Tho meetings will continue for a few nights longer as tho Inter est is increasing and many people are being converted Sunday evening eight persons came forward and avowed their detormina JjW WOuo of tho three rights guaranteed to the American people by the Bill of Rights is freedom of the press because the founders of our government believed tho free press the best defense against any tyranicalor corrupt government but what good does a free press do the men who never rend a newspaperA REPAIR THE SCHOOL HOUSE The cool and delightful days of Pat remind us that there are colder and far from delightful days and that they will not bo long ou the way When they come it will be a serious thing to be In a house where drafts are allowed And yet these conditions are found in many of the houses in which little children are gathered for an education Children in such places must either risk their lives in going to school or go without the education without which they cannot hope for success in life It menus great harm either way and it is a harm that is entirely avoidable Any two men in a communitycould by a couple of days work put the school house into such shape that it will be warm and safe A dozen could do it in a few hours The fathers of all the children who ought to attend could have a ceremony like a barn raising with the women folks supplying the extra fine basket dinner and make a lark anda pleasure out of the work and at the same time be doing n tremen dous good for their own children and all the other little ones Why not try it at your school house Mr Trustee or Miss Teacher And by the way is there wood enough to last till school closes No child can do work if it is cold PATRIOTISM AND THE LAW A few weeks ago we discussed in these columns the nature of patriotism and we have been asked to oaks practicalapplications of the principles of that great virtue to a few of the problems of government and civic life which are constantly coming up It seems almost needless to do so for every thoughtful man knows all that we can say on the subject and yet we are all likely to forget what we know or to become blinded by the little things in life so as to overlook what is more important And we have decided therefore that it way be somewhat worth whilen simply to go over the under lying principles which should govern a good citizen in his attitude toward certain public questions In the previous article we saw that the rule of patriotism i- sthisMy countrys good first every other consideration afterwards Any man who allows any other consideration to guide him iu deciding a public question is not a patriot whatever else may be said of him Let us then apply this principle to that one of the public question which conies nearest to all of usthu obeying of the law No one of us will agree that all the laws on tho statute books are wise andwe can all observe that such as tley are they are administered unequally that some men escape where others suffer for the sane crime that political pull and personal friendship hamper the administration of justice that rich and poor fare unequally In such circumstances there is a strong temptation for a man to disregard tho law He will argue that others broke it with impunity or that ho does not believe the law is right anyway or that there is no more reason to respect a man on the judicial bench than any other man off the bench or ho may give any one of a dozen other more or less good reasons for doing what he wants toin violation of the law of the land Aud yet he will talkan awful lot about his patriotism sometimes Let us see where the interests of the country lie The interests of the country are of course the interests of the majority of the people of the country If this were not a country where all men are free and equal it might be that the interests of some few men of riches or high family or good education or white color or sons other thing could be considered the interest of the country but here the thing to look at is the best good of the majority of all the people Now it is well known that the comfort and safety and prosperty and every other interest of all the people depend on the observance of the laws in general whether or not oue particular law may be fur or against those interests Every one will agree that most of the laws ought to be enforced and most of us will agree that they all ought to be enforced against every one else We say the fact is that every breaking of any one of the laws no matter whether that law is good or bad makes it harder to enforce all the others I even the good ones When a court once winks at one violation it will be easier for it to wink nt others more serious When a juror returns a verdict against the law it injures all laws Every violation and every perversion of justice makes it harder to enforce the whole law and no makes a poorer government anti less security for all the peoplethat is for tho country Every time a man breaks the law he is injuring his country and no man who knowingly breaks any law of a good government is a patriot Now this is a free country and no man is forced to be a patriot He can be any kind of a skunk he wants to as a matter of fact but we all know that no man can be a patriot and a violator of the laws at the same time no matter how loud ho yells for the flag whUoIthe Narrow Gap church but also tho Pilot Knob church will be greatly strengthened The traveling public are surprised at such luxury for 200 per day TOOTING OUR OWN HORN The Citizen wishes to pat Itself on the back a little on its enterprise In getting tho news of tho Berea Repub lican Convention into print in time for tho early distribution of mall last Thursday We may say that a few people have patted us on the back about it too But some of the gentle men with an Ingrowing grouch have stated that wo must have had the meeUngI beenIthe Republican convention As fast as tho action of tho convention became known tho article was written and broughtIpress papers were run off It was all over before ten oclock and the papers were mailed before the post office opened in the morning It was quite a little trouble and some T I expense but The Citizen always tries to serve its

any man who kills a night rider wants an executive par don for that act ho can have It It Isflbelleved hero that the attitude of the Governor on tho tobacco pool may causo a failure of that project Ho said You will remember that I have mado public addresses to our people asking them to defend their homes and assured them that if they did defend their homers and were careful not to make a mistake and kill any Innocent person but simply necessary defense of their lives liberty and pro perty they would not need any lawyer- I have never withdrawn that procla mation for It Is my most serious character and It Is my set purpose to keep tho faith under the proclamation- If mens Interest in n business plan to form a combination to raise tho prlco on their crops which Is entirely proper and wise if lawfully carried on is so great that they will form a pool that falls into lawlessness why should not selfrespecting free Kcntuc klans form a liberty or freedom pool a thousand times more serious and earnest than any pool for money pro fit and why should they not tight for their liberties when tho law Is be hind them and the Stato government Is with them- Governor Willson leaves for Boston tomorrow He will not be at home to seo the effect of his statement but ho advises that bloodshed Is likely to bo revived that will rival the oH and hlstorlal days gone by A pleasant surprise

snorted driving his nose Into the pillow as If lu final memorandum for the night he will get himself killed if he fools around Sinclair too much now- McCloud under a light shaded above his desk opened a roll of blueprints Ho was going to follow a construction gang up the Crawling Stone In the morning and wanted to look over the surveys Whispering Smith breath- Ing regularly lay not far away It was late when McCloud put away his maps entered the Inner room and locked at hIs friend He lay like a boy asleep On the chair besIde his head ho bad placed his old faahloned huntingcase watch as big as an alarm clock the kind a railroad man would wind up with a spikemaul Beside the watch be had laid his huge revolver In its worn leather scabbard Breathing peacefully he lay quite at his companions mercy and McCloud looking down on this man who never made a mistake never forgot a danger and never took an unnecessary chance thought of what between men confidence may sometimes mean He sat a moment with folded arms on the side of his bed studying the tired face defenseless in the slumber of fatigue When ho turned out the light and lay down he wondered whether somewhere In tho valley of the great river to which ho was to take his men In the morn Ing he should encounter the slight and reckless horsewoman who had blazed so In anger when ho stood boo fore her at Marlons Ho had struggled against her charm too long Sho bad become how or when ho could not tell not alone a pretty woman but a fascinating one tho creature of his constant thought Already she meant more to him than all else in the world Ho well knew that if called on to choose between DIckslo and all else ho could only choozo her But as he drew together the curtains of thought and sleep stole in upon him ho was resolved first to have Dlckslo to havo all else if ho could but in any case DIckslo Dunning When he awoke day was breaking In the mountains The maqiMarion Sinclair had promised an early breakfast CHAPTER XII The Quarrel Tho beginning of tho Crawling Stone lino marked the first determined effort under President Bucks while under taking the reconstruction of the eye tom for through traffic to develop tho rich

Glover called Yo heave ho at headquarters they bent themselves clear across the system for a hard pull together McCloud resting the operating on the shoulders of his assistant Ander son devoted himself wholly to for warding the construction plans and his first clash over winter road build ing In the Rockies came with his own right hand man Mears McCloud put In a switch below Piedmont opened a material yard and began track laying toward the lower Crawling Stono val ley when Mears said It was time to stop work till spring When McCloud told him ho wanted track across the divide and into the lower valley by spring fears threw up his hands But thero was metal in the old man and ho was for orders all tho time He kept up a running fire of protests and forebodings about the danger of ex posing men during tint winter season but stuck to his peat Spring found tM construction of the valley line wall advanced and the grades nearltv the lands of tho Dun Ing ranch Blht of way men had been working for months with Lance Dun ning over Tho lino and McCloud had been called frequently into consulta tion to rjjust tho surveys to objec tions raifcd by Dlcksles cousin to the crossing of the ranch lands Even Lancel when the proceedings had been closed a strong of dlscpntent set from tho managing head of tho Stone ranch Rumors of Lance Dunnlngs dissatisfaction often reached the rail road people Vaguo talk of an exten slve Irrigation scheme planned by Sin clair for tho Crawling Stono crept into tho newspapers and it was generally understood that Lance Dun ning had expressed himself favorably to the enterprise Dlckslo gave slight heed to matters as weighty as these She spent much of her tlmo on horseback with Jim under the saddle and In Medicine Bend where sho rodo with frequency Marlons shop became her favorite abiding place DIckslo ordered hats until Marlons conscience rose and she practically refused to supply any more But tho spirited controversy on this point as on many others Dlcksles haughtiness and Marions restraint quite unmoved by any show of displeasure ended always In drawing tho two closer to each other One March afternoon coming nome from Medicine Bend she saw at some distance before her a party of men on horseback Sho was riding a trail leading from the pass road that fol lowed tho hills and the party was coming up tho bridge road from the lower ranch Dlckalo had good eyes and something unusual In the riding of tho men was soon apparent to her Losing and regaining sight of them at different turns in the trail she made out AS she rode among the trees that they wero cowboys of her own ranch and riding under evident excitement about a strange horseman She rec ogilzed in tho escort Stormy Gorman the ferocious foreman of tho ranch and Donlson and Jim Baugh two of the most reckless of the men These three carried rides slung across their pommels and in front of them rode the stranger Fragments of the breakfasttable talk of the morning camo back to Dicksioa mind The railroad graders were in tho valley below tho ranch and she bad heard her cousin say a good deal on a point abe cared little about as to whero the mJrcfvl should cross tho Stone ranch Approaching the fork of the two roads toward which she and the cowboys were rId- Ing she checked her horse in the shade of a cottonwood tree and as the party rode up the draw sho saw the horseman under surveillance It was Georgo McCloud Unluckily as she caught a glimpse of him she was conscious that ho was looking at her She bent forward to hide a momentary confusion spoke briskly to her horse and rode out of sight At Marlons she had carefully avoided him Her precipitancy at their last meeting had seemed on reflec Lion unfortunate Sho felt that she must have appeared to him shockingly rude and there was in her recalling of tho scene an unconfcssed impression that sho had been to blame Often when Marion spoke of him which she did without the slightest reserve and with no reference as to whether Dick sio liked it or not It had been in Dick Bios mind to bring up the subject of tho disagreeable scene hoping that Marion would suggest a way for ma king some kind of uncmbarnuslng Cousin I current valley amends But sect opportunities had slipped away unimproved and here was the new railroad superintendent whom their bluff neighbor Sinclair never referred to other than as the college guy being brought apparently as a prisoner to tho Stono ranch Busied with her thoughts Dlckslo rodo slowly along the upper trails until a long detour brought her around tho corrals and in at the back of the house Throwing her lines to the ground sho alighted and through the back porch door made her way unobserved to her room From the office across the big hall she heard mens voices In dispute and sho slipped Into the dining room whero sho could hear and might see without being seen The oulco was filled with cowboys Lance Dunning standing with a cigar in his hand and one leg thrown over a corner of the table was facing Mc Cloud who stood before him with his hand on a chair Lanco was speaking as DIckslo looked Into the room and in curt tones My men vero acting under my orders You have no right to glvo such orders McCloud said distinctly nor to detain me nor to obstruct our freo passage along tho right of way you have agreed to convey to us under our surveyDamn your survey I I never had a plat of any such survey I dont recognize any such survey And it your right af way men had over said a word about crossing tho creek above tho flumo I never would have given you a right of way at nil There wore never but Two lines run below tho creek alter you raised objection I ran them both fad both were above the flume Well you cant put a grade there I and some of my neighbors are going to dam up that basin and the IrrIga- tion laws wKl protect our rights- I certainly cant put a grade in below tho flume and you refuse to talk about our crossing abovo It I certainly do Why not let us cross whore we are and run a now level for your flitch that will put the flume higher up You will have to cross below tho flume where It stands or you wont cross the ranch at all McCloud was silent for A moment I am using a supported grade there for eight miles to got over the hill within a tbrcotcnths limit I cant drop back there Wo might as woll not build at all if wo cant hold our grade whereas It would be very elm plo to run a now lino for your ditch and my engineers will do it for you without a dollar of expense to you Mr Dunning Lanco Dunning waved his hand as an ultimatum Gross whero I tell you to cross or keep off the Stone ranch Is that English- It 1 certainly Is But in matter of fact wo must cross on the survey agreed on in the contract for a right ofway deed I dont recognize any contract ob- tanned under false representations Do you nccuso me of false repre sentations Lance Dunning flipped the ash from his cigar Who are you t I am just a plain overyday civil engineer but you must not talk false representations In any contract drawn under my hand I am talking facts Whispering Smith may have rigged the JokerI dont know Whoever rigged It it has been rigged all right Any charge against Whispering Smith Is a charge against mo Ho Is not hero to defend himself but ho needs no defense You have charged mo already with misleading surveys I was telephoned for this morning to come over to see why you had held up our work and your men cover me with rifles while I am riding on a public road You have been warned or your men have to keep off this ranch Your man Stevens cut our wires this morn- ing= As ho had a perfect right to do on our right of way If you thlii so stranger go ahead againOh not We wont havo civil war not right away at least And If you and your men have threatened and browbeaten me enough for today I goDont set foot on the Stone ranch again and dont send any men here to trespass mark you I I mark you perfectly I did not sot foot willingly on your ranch today I was dragged on Jt Whero the men are grading now they will finish their workNo they wont What would you drive us off land you have already deeded The first man that cuts our wires or orders them cut where they wore strung yesterday will get into trou ble Then dont string any wires on land that belongs to us for they will certainly como down if you do Lanco Dunning turned in a passion Ill put a bullet through you It you touch a barb of Stone ranch wire Stormy Gorman jumped forward with hU band covering tho grip of his slx shooter Yes damn you and Ill put another Cousin Lance Dlckslo Dunning advanced swiftly Into tho room You aro under our own root and you are wrong to talk In that way Her cousin stared at her DIcks Ie this is no place for you It is when my cousin is in danger of forgetting ho isa gentleman You are Interfering with what you know nothing about exclaimed Lance angrily I know what Is duo to every one under this roof Will you bo good enough to leave this room rot Not It thoro is to be any shooting or threats of shooting that involvo my cousin DIcks Ie leave the room There was a hush The cowboys dropped back DIckslo stood motionless She gave no sign in her manner that sho heard tho words but sho looked very steadily at her cousin Hoa forget yourself was all she saidI am master here Also my cousin murmured Dick sle evenly You dont understand this matter at all declared Lanco Dunning vehemently Nothing could justify your Ian n guagoDo you think 1 am going to allow this railroad company to ruin this ranch whllo I am responsible hero You have no business interfering sayl I think I have These matters are not of Jour at fair Not of my affair The listeners stood riveted McCloud felt himself swallowing and took a step forward with an effort as Dlcksle advanced Her hair loosened by her ride spread low upon her bead She stood in her saddle habit with her quirt still In hand Any affair that may load my cousin Into shooting is my affair I make it mine This is my tattlers roof I neither know nor care any thing about what led to this quarrel but the quarrel is mine now I will not allow my cousin to plungo into anything that may cost him his life or ruin It She turned suddenly and her eyes foil on McCloud I nm not willing to leave either myself or my cousin in n false position I regret es- pecIally that Mr McCloud should be brought into so unpleasant a scene because ho has already suffered rudeness at my own hands McCloud flushed Ho raised his hand slightly And I am very sorry for It added Dlckslc before he could speak Then turning sho withdrew from the room I am sure said McCloud slowly as ho spoke again to her cousin there need bo no serious controversy over tho riglit of way matter Mr Dun ning I certainly shall not precipitate any Suppose you give mu n chance to rldo over tho ground with you again and lot us see whether wo cant ar rive at some conclusion But Lance was angry and nursed his wrath a long time- CHAPTER XIII The Shot In the Pus DIckslo walked hurriedly through the dining room and out upon tho rear porch Her horse was standing whore she had left him liar heart beat fu riously as she caught up tho reins but she sprang Into the saddle and rodo rapidly away Tho flood of her tent per had brought a disregard of con sequences It was In tho glow of her eyes the lines of her lips and tho tremor of her nostrils as she breathed long and deeply on her flying horse When she checked Jim she had ridden miles but not without n course nor without a purpose Whore the roads ahead of her parted to lead down the river and over tho Itlbovr Pasa to Medlclno Bond she halted within a clump of treos almost whoro site had first scon McCloud Beyond the Mission mountains the sun was setting in a fire like that which glowed under her ayes She could have counted her heartbeats as the crimson ball sank below oho verge of tho hori zon and the shadows threw up the sil ver thread of tho big river and deep med across tho heavy green of tho al falls fields Whore DIckslo sat strug gling with liar bounding pulse and holding Jim tightly In no ono from tho ranch or indeed from tho up country could pass her unseen Sho was waiting for a horseman and the sun had set but n few minutes when sho heard a sharp gallop coming down tho upper road from the hills All her brave plans terror stricken at tho sound of tho hoofbeats fled from her utterly She was stunned by the suddenness of the crisis She had meant to stop McCloud and speak to him but before she could summon hor courage a tall slender man on horseback dashed past within a few feet of her Sho could almost have touched him as ho new by and a horso less steady than Jim would have shlod under her DIckslo caught her breath She did not know this man sho had scow only his oycs oddly bright In tho twilight as ho passed but he was not of the ranch Ho must have como from the hill road she con eluded down which she herself had just ridden Ho was somewhere from tho north for he sat his horso like a statue and rodo like tho wind But the encounter nerved her to her resolve Some leaden moments passed and McCloud galloping at a far milder pace toward tho fork of the roads checked his speed as ho ap proached Ho saw a woman on horse bark waiting In his path Mr McCloud Miss Dunning I could not forgive myself It I waited too long to warn you that yourlifeday My cousin Is not a murderer and rover could be I am sure in spite of his talk but I was frightened at tho thought that if anything dreadful should happen his name would be brought Into It There are enemies of yours In this country to be feared and It is against these that I warn you Goodnight Surely you wont ride nwny with out giving mo n chance to thank you exclaimed McCloud Dlcksla checked her horso I owe you a doublo debt of gratitude ho added tad I am anxious to assure you that wo desire nothing that will Injure youi Interest In nny way In crossing your lands I know nothing about those mat tore because my cousin mmmgea everything It is growing Into and you havo a good way to go so good night backjpno youl It will soon bo dark and you ats aloneNo

Compensation Frankfort Ky State Inspector and Examiner Thatcher turned into the stato treasury 2500 received from Sheriff Davison of Kenton county which amount represents what Davl son has received over and above C000 as his annual compensation during tho years 1906 to 1908 Inclusive Section 236 of tho constitution provides that no public officer except tho governor shall rccclvo more than 5000 annual compensation Section 4108 of the statutes fixes the compensation of sheriffs at not exceeding this amount Although the General Assembly has never provided for the specific enforce ment of the statute the governor con tends that tho law is selfenforcing And following an examination of tho Kenton county sheriffs office he de termined that Davison owed tho state Eomo 3500 if the law was enforced Davlson took tho position however that some of tho excess was used for office expenses and deputy services and tho settlement of 2500 to the state was a compromise agreed upon by tho governor attorney general and auditor According to Thatcher coun ty officials throughout the state who have collected In tees more than 5000 as their annual compensation will have to refund to the state or defend legal action for its collection and It Is ex pected that a thorough Investigation and cleanup of county offices will result with thousands of dollars con vetted to the state treasury POOLING OF

In Pine Tree State Mr W11 Anderson superintendent of the Maryland State Anti Saloon luague has returned to Baltimore art er a visit of three Weeks to different points in Maine During his stay In that state ho made a close study to ascertain It the law against tho solo of liquor Is enforced Ills conclusion is that despite statements to the con trary the law is enforced and that whisky is n very scarce article- I went to Maine said Mr Anderson to obtain a rest and to ascertain for my own Information If tho liquor law Is enforced My headquarters were at Owls Head a resort on tho coast where it was impossible to ob- taIn an Intoxicating drink I visited Portland which is the largest city in the state Rockland a city of 10000 population and Camden nnother city of considerable size I was told in Portland that If I really wanted n drink I could find one but I would have to go up back alleys through filth and amid the slums to obtain It This certainly does not agree with the statements that liquor can easily bo obtained in Maine During mj whole stay in the state I saw only two drunken men Each had a bottle in his hip pocket One of tho men was in the custody of the police There is a bottle trade In the state the whisky being shipped from Dos ton Congress passed ft law which will be effective on January 1 by which there will be no C O D sales of whis ky brought from another state The law will also require that all packages containing Intoxicants shall have labels designating their contents in eluding their quantltly and quality Maine prohibitionists believe that this law will considerably reduce tho bot tie trade What impressed mo mtBt how ever was the absence of drlrklng by young men A new generation has coma on the scene since the saloon was abolished in the state This means a removal of temptation to drink Hence the absence of Intem perance among young men I was told that the amount of liquor sold In Port land would not equal by a largo mar gin tho amount of liquor that would be sold over the bar of one open saloon In the city There has been complaint Oi the violation of the antiliquor laws in Bangor This violation was mostly by lumbermen who imported their supplies of liquor I saw by tho newspapers that state deputies had been sent to tile city and that several ar rests had been made- I visited the state penitentiary near Rockland It Is not much larger than one of our county jails Its convicts numbered about 200 I was told that this Is above tho average of 175 be cause of recent arrests for violation of the liquor laws As you nro prob ably aware tho savings bank accounts In Maine exceed per capita those of any other state By the wny did the fact ever strike you that Maine although n small state has for half a century exerted more influence In the national congress than any other state In tho union It has been represented In the senate by Fessenden and by Frye and Hale who are reelected just as soon as their terms expire In tho house there have been such leading men as Blaine Reed Dingley and Llttlefleld There Is no liquor question to dlturb poll tics In Maine It does not shelve a man In that state capable members of tho house are promoted to the senate nnd then to the national congress I was told that any effort to repeal the liquor law would meet with disastrous failureWhile In Portland I called upon Mr G W Norton editor of the Ex press one of tho leading dally news papers in the state He assured mo that the law Is observed and the abo lition of tho saloon has been a die tinct success I also had an Interview with Mr J R Libby the largest merchant In Maine He owns a department store In Portland He corroborated all Mr Norton said about the enforcement of the liquor laws- I am thoroughly convinced nfter my Investigation in Maine that statements that tho laws are not enforced are misleading In fact I am con vinced that whisky Is a very scarce article there and is hard to obtain Why the proprietors of the tending hotels at Poland Springs one of the most popular resorts In the state will not tolerate liquor on their premises and contribute liberally to tho temperance cause Mental Disease Due to Drink Dr Th Zlehen

the morning paper but she had had a long and busy day with shopping calls and afternoon parties And soI the little paragraph had escaped her notice Now as she came down Into tho drawing room to await her moth er preparatory to starting for a ball she idly took up the paper It stared her in tho face She read It and smiled to herself It seemed something that sho had often read before and then she reread It and knew it was Impossible and knew that It was true A marriage had been arranged She had often seen It In her theII she had ever heard of before Was she still living or had she I gone out of the world this very strange world altogether Could peo pie and things be turning In tho same brilliant social kaleidoscope when thisI the unexpectedhad happened Could such things be And then the girl smiled at herself again smiled as her mother came Into the room pleasant dignified be jeweled looking with complacent eyes at tho daughter who had never failed to do her credit The bells of tho waiting electric brougham sound ed below and the girl still smiled smiled all that evening as she danced to the echo of five words beating time in her heart and brain while she listened to the comments on the engagement and met with splendid composure the inquisitive eyes that asked questions and received no an swer from a bravely smiling young face that told them nothing Yes the world was still going on merrily even though a marriage had been arranged And now she must write to him It was four months since she had sent him a timid little note at Christmas a letter which to tho eyes that could read It contained another letter writ ten between the conventional lines It had been answered in the same they had not met since and now was writing to congratulate him Dear this isnt true TheI may say so that you are going to marry some one else a girl called Daisy whom I have never heard of but until you tell me so yourself I wont believe It Oh I know Its In the papers but they dont count do they You and I know You havent quite forgotten last July 7 I dont think you have any more than I have myself up In Scot land that day In the glen you and I We had always been such friends coming down over the stepping stones how wet and slippery they werelI knew you for something more Oh didnt you guess I felt yes I felt that you cared and you never said a word Is It my money my hateful money that stands between us Surely God never meant a girl to have the millions that I shall have and you know It all her own Was that the barrier It cant bo that you didnt dont care I shall never believe that until you tell mo so yourself not through the papersDo those three weeks all count for nothing Three weeks nearly a year UvediandMonths out of my life which I give to you Jack and then you hurl this at me Wouldnt It have been kinder not to let me think I expect that It was my fault Well I can only wish you luck qulto the best of luck oven with some one else Goodby Jack write and tell mo If you can that It isnt trueMAJORIE But this was the letter she sent Dear Capt Atherton I am writing to wish you all good luck Dont both er to answer this as I am suro you are bored to death with congratula tions Yours sincerely MAJOniB MANNERING Little girl little princess what are you thinking of me I wonder if you are thinking at alit You havo seen the announcement in the papers and your gray eyes will stare at It and you wilt smile that brave little smile of yours I know so well and probably go off and dance at somebodys ball and forget all about it Not tonight I think MarJorie will you forgetAnd all the time you are asking yourself what does it all mean I ask myself that question too did you caro or was I mistaken You did not let me see I thought so but if I had been suroWell God knows how hard it is for a man without a penny to speak to the daughter of a multimillionaire Ah those three weeks that evening In the Glen and those wet stepping stones I wonder If you remember or do women forget I care for Daisy yes honestly care but deep down In my heart is burled my lovo for you I dare not think how easy it would be to resur rect It I think I must put Resur gam over it Forgive me little girl If there Is anything to forgive and good by JACK But this was the Utter he sent Dear Miss Mannering Thank you so much for your charming letter It is so nice to get ones friends good wishes and perhaps I appreciate them more than you think Yours sincerely JOHN ATHERTON Doubt Enters In All men are unqualifiedly selfish asserted the unengaged girl who de lighted In epigrams I really cant see how you engaged girls manage to be content when you realize how selfcentered and ungrateful men are Wo are doing pretty well thank you said the girl who wore a new solitaire somewhat flippantly- As soon as a man has a thing went on the unengaged girl he ceases to care for It I read a story today about a man who was so bored during his honeymoon though ho had married the girl ho bad always loved that he developed chronic melan cholla Well ho certainly wasnt in love then broke in tho girl with the new solitaire I dont see how you can say such awful things I know Tom is moro in love with jno every day of his life Ho is so generous too Yes chimed In tho girl who was hemming napkins and Durnoll also Is most considerate and thoughtful He Is always thinking of my comfort and happiness If It Is really the right girl and the right man I dont believe there Is such a thing as tiring of see- Ing too much of each other I know Burncll was simply delighted when I proposed going up to a quiet little lake for our honeymoon Instead of going east lie said he would feel that he had me so much more to himself Oh girls girls put In the unen gaged girl with a pitying smile I suppose I shouldnt dispel your sweet Illusions but It is truly ridiculous for you to cling to such foolish ideas and expectations Tho men of today marry ib the most practical way and only after due deliberation The soon er you reallze Burnell asked me to marry him after he had known me only two months defiantly flashed the girl who was hemming napklhs There surely wasnt much deliberation In his case I really think Helen you are very un just But you can sow beautifully and cook wonderfully said tho unengaged girL I remember you telling me what a lovely little housekeeper Bur nell thought you Then how about moT demanded the girl with the new solitaire tri umphantly I cant sew a beanbag and never cooked a thing in my life Tom knows it too and ho said only last night that I was the worst llttlo gadabout he ever saw Really dear your theories wont hold water Didnt you know Tom quite awhile before ho proposed to you queried the unengaged girl evenly Nollerabout two years faltered the girl with the new solitaire but he wasnt In a position to marry until recently I am sure Helen It was due deliberation on his part dear affirmed the unengaged girl I only wish I could be as easily satisfied as you girls are with the sentiment the average man offers but my finer feel ings simply revolt r feel now I will never marry because I cant rest con tent with being the minor part of some condescending mans existence Must you be going so soon7 Wasnt she horrid exclaimed the girl with tho new solitaire when the front door closed behind them a few minutes afterward She Is just as jealous as she can be Ill tell Tom every word Then she turned with flushed cheeks and shining eyes to her friend But listen dear sho said almost tragically I wouldnt ac knowledge It to another soul but the truth Is that Tom did wait a long time before he asked me Perhaps Helen is right She may be said the other en gaged girl a scarlet spot showing on each check Burnell told mo only last night that It was such a comfort to him to know he was marrying such a capable little wife Why its dread ful to think hes so calculating Rather early tho next morning the girl with tho new solitaire dropped In to see tho other engaged girl My dear she cried tho minute her friend entered the room I told Tom every word that Helen said Ho just laughed and told mo bo would have asked me the mlnuto he met me if ho had anything to marry on I told Burnell too said the other engaged girl radiantly He said Helen was just a disturber of the peace Ho said he didnt caro if I couldnt boll water without burning It as wo should have a maid anyhow He doesnt want mo to sow at all after we are married because It might hurt myeyesCome on cried the girl with the now solitaire vindictively Lets go right over to Helens and tell her what they said No demurred the other engaged girl I promised Burnell to keep away from her as ho said she might tell me some more nonsense hat I would believe Chicago Daily News What He Said

In theI next week Is as great as In the there will surely be a score on Central and there may bo a victory The game was won by State largely thru kicking and running the ends No gains of Importance were made at any limo Inside of tackle The ends too were usually where they belong ed and only twice In the game did State make first down But there was j some fumbling State gained on every exchange of kicks and so worked the ball down towards Bereas goal fin ally getting over some way Usually It was by a one or two yard buck Berea too suffered somewhat from I decisions of tho referee at critical

doubting that both Cook and Peary reached tho poleIMr Whitney was questioned regard ing the statements made to him by Dr Frederick A Cook In Greenland He skid Cook arrived at Annotok in April of this year and declared that ho had reached the north pole a year before He pledged Whitney however not to tell Commander Peary who was to be Informed only that Cook had gono farther north than Pearys previous record 87 degrees C minutes Continuing Dr Cook told Whitney that ho had accomplished all he expected to and more besides nnd northerncountrycate the latter part of this statement to Commander Peary Continuing Mr Whitney said that Dr Cook had complained to him of Pearys taking over his house and stores but declared that he had suf fered no unfairness Pearys stew ard William Pritchard was present when these statements were made like Mr Whitney be was pledged to secrecy by Dr Cook Murphy Pearys boatswain who was In charge of the stores was absent at Etah on this day and did not hear Dr Cooks communi cations There were two houses on the Greenland shore one at Annotok hold ing Cooks stores and another at Etah holding Pearys stores Tho three white men Whitney Murphy and Pritchard sometimes occupied one and sometimes the other of these houses Murphy is not able to read or write Ho had written instructions from Peary which Whitney at Pearys request read over to him from time to time These Instructions were very stringent They directed Murphy to use Cooks stores first and Pearys afterwardsMurphy was told In them that he was to give Dr Cook every help It ho came along In a needy condition and furthermore tho instruction Implied that Murphy was to organize an expe dition to search for Dr Cook butac cording to Mr Whitney this part of the Instructions was worded ambigu ously Mr Whitney said that Cook had a copy ot these Instructions and would doubtless make them public When Dr Cook and his Eskimos ar rived at the house they had no sledge being too tired to drag it over the rough ico they had left It 20 miles from Etah The following day some other Eskimos went out recovered tho sledgo and brought it in On It were Dr Cooks instruments clothes and foodAfter spending two days at Annotok where Cook first met Whitney Cook started for Etah Whitney accom panted him The doctor had figured out roughly the date tht he would likely get to Upernavlk aud when the Dundee whalers or the Danish storo ships would reach there and he argued that ho had no time to lose lie planned originally to take two Eskimos and two sledges but one Eskimo fell sick and this made it necessary for him to cut down the luggage he could take with him south New YorkDr Frederick A Cook contemplates tho bringing of a suit against Commander Peary to recover damages for slander and

citizen obeying the laws of the empire and fulfilling his duties as a Roman citizen Ho was a faithful cot- enant member of the commonwealth of God to which the other Jews In cluding the members of the Sanhe drhn belonged Ho lived as a true and loyal Jew Ills record was his defense And this In all good con science before God However men may misjudge him by their false standards or In Ignorance of

to Paul while ho was explaining his teachings and his work In words of which the rec ord Is tho barest epitome Ho perceived a difference ot opinion among the rulers The two leading parties were almost

with its consuming power Is tho market that confronts America the country that alono possesses the commodity indispensable to the nations Thus far wo have neglected our stewardship During tho last fiscal year wo sold to the old world only a little over 4000000 worth of finished cotton goods Our host cus tomer in that part of the world was the United Kingdom which bought from us 1853984 worth

every 31 days In tho last 12 months this Increase im the United Kingdom was 2765000 And every new mill and every new spindle In England Is erected with the confidence that the raw cotton can be obtained from the American planter at prices which beggar him King Cotton on a British Throne Cotton Is the worlds king but it sits om a British throne Last year wo exported alittle over 200 OOOQOO yards of piece goods valued at 15 000000 but at the same time tho United Kingdom was selling abroad more than 1HDJA COTTON MERCHANTS 6000000000 yards valued at more than 400000000 If you confront the ordinary jubilant statistician with the cold analysis of our unsuccess abroad the rejoinder is apt to bo that after all America for many years has had a favorable balance of trade In a recent opti mistic review of Americas foreign commerce It Is sot forth with much elation that the excess of exports over Imports In the past fiscal year amounted In value to 146000000 get those figures we had to count in 482000000 worth of raw cotton shipped abroad and if wo cross out raw cotton from the record our foreign reveals an export trade considerably less than our Import and as unmanufactured cotton is sold abroad through no enterprise on the part of America but is rather a traffic resulting tram our neglect of our oppor tunity there Is nothing In tho mere totals ot our foreign trade to warrant the complacency of our statesmen There was a time when Yankee packets carried American wares around the world but we have aban doned our ships and they have all but vanished from tho seas The federal hand has been busy building break waters scooping out harbors and deepening waterways Now we aro cutting a channel through the hemisphere Conscious of our strength and In the presence of bewil dering achievements at home we find it difficult to realize that our dominion pauses at the chores of our seas Tho decline of our merchant marine from the days of our great achievements is not the result of any do creaso in our national vigor The energy and genius of tho American people have simply been withdrawn from I tho sea We have expended our Ingenuity and strength and riches In exploiting the
