Profs Deckmann Somo claimed It was first found In Africa whence It was brought In early days for tho banquets of tho Romans Others believe that because of Its name It must havo come from Turkey a term then applied vaguely to Tar tary and even to Asia In general Its German name kalekuter led to tho assertion that the first specimens had been shipped from Calcutta but those Inclining to this opinion wore laughed at by others who said that kalokuter was simply the Gorman attempt to express the birds cry A few believe that the bird was an importation from tho now world And whllo learned I heads wagged over the problem the turkey wont straight on gobbling Its t way Into European barnyards It was Introduced Into England as early some say as 1624 and at a ban quet given by Queen Mary In 1565

little bunch of steers just a small bunch all by myself and hadnt n cent In tho world no place to sleep and nothing to cat I had a good time Now I have to keep my money In the bank that aint pleasantyou know that Every man that brings a bunch of cattle across Deep creek has stole em and expects me to buy em or lend him money Im busy with in specters all the time deviling with brands standing off the Stock associa tion and all kinds of trouble Ive got too many cows too much money Im afraid somebody will shoot mo If I go to sleep or poison me if I take a drink Whispering Smith Id like to give you a half interest In my busi ness Thats on the square Youre a young man and handy It wouldnt cost you a cent and you can have half of tho wholo shootingmatch if youll cross Deep creek and help mo run the gang Such was Rebstock free fromi anxiety and In a confidential moment Under pressure ho was IIko all men differentWhispering Smith had acquaintance even in the Cache and after a little careful reconnoitering he found a crippled up thief driving a milch cow down the Cache who was willing to take a message to the boss Whispering Smith gave his Instruc tions explicitly facing the messenger as the two sat In their saddles with on importunate eye Say to Rebstock exactly these wards he insisted This Is from Whispering Smith I want Du Sanr He killed a friend of tnlno last night at Mission Springs I happened to bo near there and know ho rode in last night Ho cant getI out the Canadian Is plugged I wont stand for the hilling and it is Du Sang or a cleanup In the Cache all around and then Ill get Du Sang anyway Re gards Riding circumspectly In and about tho entrance to the Cache tho party waited an hour for an answer When tbo answer camo It was unsatisfac tory Rebstock declined to appear WhisperInggrievance More parley and stronger messages were necessary to stir the Deep creek monarch but at last he sent word asking Whispering Smith to onlybyThe two railroad men rode up the canyon together And now I will show you a lean and hungry thief grown monstrous and miserly Farrell said Whispering Smith At the head of a short pocket between two hear granite walls they saw FLKMtock weatherbeaten cabin and he stood In front of it smoking Ho looked moodily at his visitors out of tatuas tho two shook hands but ho ails mounted and followed Rebstock Into housedore you so high and mighty hiseyouda man you or send word what you will dot What have you got to kick about Havent you been treated right Being In no position to complaini but shrewdly aware that un pleasantness was In the wind Reb stock beat about tho bush He had had rheumatism he couldnt ride he had been In bed three weeks and hadnt seen Du Sang for three months You aint chasing up here after Du Sang because he killed a man at Mission Springs I know better than that That aint the first man hes killed and It aint a goln to be the last Whispering Smith lifted his finger and for tho first time smiled Now there you err Rebstock It is a goln to be the last So you think Im after you do out Well If I were what are you going to do about IU Reb stock do you think It I wanted you I would send a message for you to yourlifeyour shack and drag you out by the hair of the head Sit down roared Whispering Smith Rebstock who weighed at least 275 pounds had lifted himself up to glare and swear freely Now be dropped angrily back into his chair Well who do you want he bellowed In kind A smile softened tho asperity of the railroad mans Dee Thats a fair question and I givo you a straight answer Im not bluffing I want Du SangRebstock squirmed He swore with shortened breath that he knew noth ing about Du Sang that Du Sang had stolen his cattle that hanging was too good for him that ho would join any posso in searching for him and that he had not seen him for three months WhisperingHe rode In here last night after killing old Dan Baggs Your estimable KargIespecial and particular I want Du SangRebstock denied protested wheezed and stormed but Whispering Smith was immovable Ho would not stir promisesRebstock else in the Cachohinted strongly at two different men for whom handsome rewards were out but every compromise suggested was met with the same goodnatured words I want Du SangAt last the smile changed on Whis pering Smiths face It lighted his eyes still but with a different expression Seo here Rebstock you and I have always got along havent we Ive no desire to crowd any man to the wall that Is a man Now I am going to tell you the simple truth Du Sang has got you scared to death That man Is a faker Rebstock Because ho kills men right and left wlthot any provocation you think he Is dangerous He isnt there are a dozen men In the Cache just as good with a gun as Du Sang Is Dont shake your head I know what Im talking about Ho Is a Jay with a gun and you may tell him I said so do you hear Tell him to como out if he wants me to demonstrate It He has got every body Including you scared to death Now I say dont be silly I want Du SangRebstock rose to his feet solemnly and pointed his finger at Whispering Smith Whispering Smith you know meI know you for a fat rascal Thats all right You know me and just as you say wo always get along because we both got sense Youre hiding yours today Reb stockNo matter Ill tell you what Ill do Ill give you all the horseflesh you can kill and all the men you can hire to go after him and Ill bury your dead myself You think ho cant shoot I give you a tip on the square Whispering Smith snorted Hell shoot the four buttons off your coat In four shots Smith kicked Rebstocks dog contemptuously And do It whllo you are falling down Ive seen him do It persisted Relstock moist with perspiration Im not looking for a chance to go against a sure thing I wash my hands of tho job Whispering Smith rose It was no trick to see he had you scared to death You are losing your wits old man The albino Is a faker and I tell you I am going to run him out of the country Whispering Smith reached rlgbtberein your sink that over went agnlnst our road You know as well as I do that this man with four others held up our train night before last at Tower W shot our cngtucman to death for mere delight killed a messenger took wt J 1 I Know You for a Fat Rascal 65000 out of the through sato and mado his good getaway Now dont lie you know every word of It and you thought you could pull it out of me by a bluff I track him to your door He is Inside the Cache this minute You know every curve and canyon and jailbird in It and they pay you bloodmoney and hush money every month and when I ask you not to glvo up a dozen men the company Is entitled to but merely to send this plnkeyed lobster out with his guns to talk with mo you wash your hands of the job do you Now listen If you dont send Du Sang into the open before noon tomorrow Ill run every living steer and every living man out of Williams Cacho before I cross the Crawling Stono again so help mo Cod And Ill send for cowboys with in 30 minutes to begin the job Ill scrape your Deep Creek canyons till the rattlesnakes squeal Ill make Wil liams Cacho so wild that a timber wolf cant follow his own trail through- It Youll break with mo will you Reb stock Then wind up your bank account before I finish with you Ill put you in stripes and feed buzzards off your table Rebsftcks faco was apoplectic Ho choked with a torrent of oaths Whispering Smith paying no attention walked out to whore Kennedy was waiting He swung Into tho saddle fgnorlng Rebstocks abjurations and with Kennedy rodo away It Is hard to do anything with a man that Is scared to death said Smith to his companion Then too Rebstocks nephew Is probably In this In any case when Du Sang has got Rebstock scared he is a dangerous man to be abroad Wo have got to smoke him out Farrell Lance Dun ning Insisted tho other day he wanted to do me n favor Ill see If hell lend mo Stormy Gorman and somo of his cowpunchers for a roundup Weve got to smoke Du Sang out A round up is the thing But by heaven If that roundup Is actually pulled off It will be a classic wben you and I are gone Thirty minutes afterward messengers had taken the Frenchman trail for Lance Dunnings cowboys CHAPTER XXVII The Fight In the Cache A clear night and a good moon made- a long ride possible and the Crawling Stone contingent headed by Stormy Gorman began coming Into the rail road camp by throe oclock tho next morning With them rodo the two Youngs who had lost tho trail they followed across Goose river and joined tho cowboys on the road to the north The party divided under Kennedy and Smith who rode through the Door Into the Cache just before daybreak- I dont know what I am steering you against this morning Farrell said Whispering Smith Certainly I should hato to run you into Du Sang but we cant tell whore wo shall strike him If we have laid out tho work right I ought to see him as soon as anybody does Accidents do happen but remember he will never be any more dangerous than he Is at tho first moment Get him to talk Ho gets nervous If ho cant shoot right away When you pull get a bullet Into his stomach at the start It you possibly can to spoil his aim Wo mustnt make the mistake of underestimating him Rebstock Is right ho is a fright with a revolver and Sinclair and Sea gruo are men In the moun I 1 tains that can handle a rifle with him Now we split here and good luck Dont you want to take Brill Young with you t You take both the Youngs Farrell Wo shall be among rocks and If he tries to rush us there Is cover Stormy Gorman with four Crawling Stone cowboys followed Whispering Smith Every rider on tho range had a grievance against Williams Cache and any of them would have been glad to undertake reprisals against the rustlers under the wing of Whispering SmithJust how in the mountainswith- out telegraph newspapers and all ordinary means of publicity news trav els so fast may not certainly be said The scattered lines of telephone wires help but news outstrips the wires Moreover there are no telephones in the Mission mountains But on the morning that the roundup party rode into the Cache it was known in the streets of Medicine Bend that the Tower W men had been tracked into the PArth country that somo If not all of them were In Williams Cacho that an ulUsmum had been given and Kennedybadto make It good- Whispering Smith with the cow boys took the rough country to the left and Kennedy and hie party took the south prong of the Cache creak Tho instructions wets to make a clean sweep as the line advanced Behind the center rode tiirte men to take stock driven In from the wings Word that was brief but reasonable had been sent everywhere ahead Every man It was promised that could provo property should have a chance to do so at the Door that day and the next but any brands that showed stolen cattle or that had been skinned or tampered with In any way wero to bo turned over to the Stock associa tion for the benefit of owners Tho very first pocket raided started a row and uncovered 80 head of five yearold steers bearing a mutilated Duck Bar brand It was like poking at rattlesnakes to undertake to clean out the grassy retreats of tho Cache but the work was pushed on In spite of protests threats and resistance Every man that rodo out openly to make a protest was referred calmly to Rebstock and before very long Reb stocks cabin had moro men around it than bad been seen together In the Cacho for years The Impression that the whole jig was up and that the refugees had been sold out by their own boss was ono that no railroad man undertook to discourage The towboys insisted on tho cattle with Ibo assurance that Rebstock could explain everything By noon the Cacho was In an uproar The cowboys were riding carefuUy and their guards rifles In hand were watching the corners Ahead of the slowly moving lino with tho growing bunch of cattle behind it flourished as It wore rather conspicuously fugitive riders dashed back and forth with curses and yells across the narrow valley If It had been Whispering Smiths Intention to raise a largosized row it was apparent that ho had been successful Rob stock driven to desperation held council after council to determine what to do Sorties wero discussed ambushes considered and a pitched battlo was planned But while ideas wero pleat ful no ono aspired to lead an attack on Whispering Smith Ma roofer Williams Cache it was 7 conceded would In tho end bo worsted If the company nnd tho cowmen together seriously undertook with men and unlimited money to clean it out Whispering Smiths party had no explanation to offer for tho roundup but when Rebstock mado it known that tho fight was over sending out Du Sang tho rage of the rustlers turned on Du Sang Again however no man wanted to take up personally with Du Sang tho question of the reasonable ness of Whispering Smiths demand Instead of doing so they foil on Rob stock and demanded that If ho wero boss he make good and send Du Sang outOf all this commotion the railroad men saw only tho outward indications As tho excitement grow on both side there was perhaps a llttlo more of die play In the way tho cattlo were run In especially when some longlost bunch was brought to light and welcomed with yells from tho center A steer was killed at noon everybody fed and the Use noted forward The wind which had slept In tho sunshine of tho morning roso In tho afternoon and tho dust whirled In llttlo clouds where men or animals moved From tho center two men had gone back with cattle gathered up to that time and Bill Dancing with Smith Stormy Co man and two of the cowboys wore beading a draw to cross to tho north side of tho Cache when three men rode out into the road 600 yards ahead and halted Whispering Smith spoke Thor come our moon stop here This ground in front of us looks rood to me they may have chosen something over there that suits them better Feel your guns and well start forward slowly dont take your eyes off tho bunch what ever you do Bill you go back and help the men with the cattle there will bo four of us against three then Not for mine said Dill Dancing bluntly You may need help from an old tool yet Ill sea you through this nnd look after the cattle afterward Then Stormy ono or two of you go back urged Whispering Smith speaking to tho cowboy foreman with out turning his oyes Theres no need of live of us In this But Stormy swore violently You go back yourself exclaimed Stormy when he could control his feelings Well bring them fellows in for you in ten minutes with their hands in tho air I know you would I know It But Im paid for this sort of thing and you are not and I advise no man to

a mans being by his reason his conscience and his will It Is keeping tho soul on top The all pervasive thought In tho verses of tho lesson for today Is this selfcontrol tho basis of temperance Why are we all even the youngest children placed In the midst of so many temptations to lie to steal to gamble to drink intoxlctalng liquors to bo selfish and disobedient Because there Is no other way of opening tho door to mans highest pos sibilities his fullest development his purest holiness his greatest happi ness his largest usefulness All who would become strong and useful must gain their power largely through victory over temptation It Is thus that tho soul builds Itself larger mansions It Is a chief factor In educa tion Men cultivate courage through things that test courage They grow In faith through the things that try their faith They learn business by taking the risks of business People without trials and temptations are al ways failures Why are we so full of Impulses and passions of faculties and powers that may be used for goon or for evil 7 Be cause the Question of life with every man Is the question of selfcontrol of temperance Prof Thomson In his Drain and Personality says that too Will creates the man We make our own brains by repeated choices which are acts of Will The Will Is the ranking official of all In man Why then do we pray Lead its not Into temptation Because there are plenty of temptations for our edu cation without our seeking for more Because our only true attitude toward temptation Is that of a fighter a con queror Whosoever goes willingly with desire

Automobile Designed to Offset Fight Ing Air Craft Berlin Tho great success of dirigi ble balloons has created a demand for the invention of means to destroy them in war time Of these the fire from rifles and machine guns was not sufficient qn account of their small caliber and the difficulty of watching the moving airship Cannon have therefore been designed In Germany the greatest manufacturing country of war material for the solo purpose of attacking and shooting balloons flying machines and the like To do this effectively such n cannon must comply with the following require ments Unlimited moving ability sideways shooting at any angles up to the vertical highest speed of the pro jectlle or smallest time for flying In The Airship Destroyer addition it must be possible to move the gun from place to place in the shortest time Tho automobile Illustrated herewith complies with these many and dIm cult requirements It has been built by tho famous Krupp concern and was exhibited in the recent Interna tional aero show at Frankfort The fact that tho gun is rather long lay ors a high speed for the projectile Above it Is a brake with a liquid and air compressor When a shot Is to be fired the bolting of the gun Is dlsen gaged and the latter slides out by the expansion of tho air The total weight of the car is 4315 kilograms and that of the gun alone 450 kilograms A 50 horsepower engine it mounted under the hood and propels the vehicle with a speed of 70 miles an hour avcrage All four wheels are connected with the motor and thus any rough ground and steep grades can be overcome On the platfornr scats for five men are provided and room for 32 cartridges The cartridges deserve some description as they have some nove features It is necessary to watch the path of a projectile If applied to i balloon Shrapnel hit only the coves and these holes are mostly closed again by the inner gas pressure sc that not much gas escapes The best result comes from brisanco grenades which explode inside the balloon and not only hit the envelope but Ignite the gas Thus an airship will bo com pletely wrecked as the photograpt shows Another valuable feature It that each projectile contains a burnei ignited as it leaves the gun and this produces a wake of black smoke showing the line of lllght by night 01 dar DANIEL WEBSTERS CARRIAGE Boston Business Man Who Owns Great

urges the necessity of a marriage tie that can be broken only by death No sane person who honestly has at heart the best interests of society In general will differ from the professor but the difficulty with his proposition f that it begins in the wrong place I the church and the law paid halt the attention to marriage that they do to divorce the divorce problem would bo reduced to a mighty small minimum The blind halt and foolish are permit ted to wed without let or hindrance The state and the church make no 1 quiry whatever says the Chicago Eve- nIng Journal Anyoneeven those manifestly unfit to marrycan b wedded on request a condition whic manifestly makes for marital unrost and dissatisfaction and is largely productive of divorce Give marriage more safeguards and the courts will find much less necessity to interfere with family relations But those who expect to remove the effect without eliminating the cause are attempting a task very near the impossible According to an iron trade bulletin devoted to Mexican development it appears that the iron Industry in that country is capable of wonderful expan sion says the New York Financier The celebrated iron mountain of D rango the Carro del Mercado is worldwide fame and it Is claimed to be one of the most valuable iron de- posIts in the world both as to quality and quantity It is estimated to con thin 300000000 tons of 70 per cent ore above the level of the plains Thcr is another mountain near the mouth of the Bursas river which Is valuable largely because of its accessibility the sea and therefore to the markets of the world This mountain is be lieved to contain over one billion me- trIc tons of ore low in phosphate and averaging more than 60 per cent of iron Other deposits in the mineral regions of Mexico indicate possible yields of several hundred million tons of highgrade ore and along the Pacific coast there are equally valuable deposit It is evident that the transatlantic steamers are getting to the limit of achievement as to speed when a matter of 50 seconds clipped from a run Is heralded as a shortening of the time between the two continents This rec ognition of a mere shaving of time in the running is not reconcilable with the wasting hours after the completion of the rushing voyages before taking the ships to dock In New York city This Inconsistency Is no longer glar ing because the steamers are now taken to the docks at night instead of waiting for the return of daylight but there is time enough lost at the ter minnie to make the saving of 50 sec onds by a rush

ImmortalbardJam and soberness Into the mouth at lagsa goodono more against It It will be observed that Shakes pears said good wino It is my opinion based on known alcoholinIt promotes digestion when ingested thathoor change that It cheers with out Inebriating and produces a feel flag of wellbeing When taken In too great quantities without food oven cowith food or too frequently the In thelady Copinion It Is always a food but auto as such only when properly used twhen Improperly used It acts as IL- polRon This can bo said with truth I1of almost any other food Alcohol however In excess has an undoubtedly evil effect upon tho moral sense It seems to create a perversion of tho normal Impulses or an exagger ation of them under these conditions many crimes have been committed so many In fact that It seems best to a great many people who have never used It at all or have suffered tract its abuse to wish to abolish It entirely or put Its sale Into tho hands tho law To abolish Its use Bud denly and completely In any com munity or country where It has been In use for centuries would produce a psychic moral and physiological cat aclysm It Is saM to say that It nil the men of this city who have been accustomed dayforsuddenly denied them permanently you could muster thorn Into a bat fallen of pallid ghosts In two months and It Is doubtful It the majority of them would over

Among those who condemn alcohol unreservedly will bo found many who drink tea This beverage hue been called tho cup which cheers but does not inebriate In my opinion titsphrase has done n world of

when they move carry their farms with them as the tortoise does his house These people are the Norman French the worlds best farmers Where you or I would require twen ty or thirty aces ot land to keep one family the French farmer will keep a family on a quarter of an acre If he chose to cultivate twenty or thirty acres he would become a millionaire Ills secret lies in the perfection to which he brings his top soil What with ferterllzlng and watering and blackestlflnutsot is to tho French farmer what tho voice is to the prIma donna And when he rents he contracts toll on the termInation of bls

great drifting sea of snow while the soft feathery flakes were still falling Ruth Hayward stood at tho window of I the parsonage diningroom and looked out Into tho storm wltb disconsolate eyes There doesnt seem much to be thankful for this year she thought with a sigh No winter clothes and Ralph and tether sick and mother worn out with trying to make ends meet I dont see why some people have so much and others so little Ruth said her mother coming Into the room just then hafo you practiced the Thanksgiving hymns for tohorrowt Yes mother answered Ruth but I dont see how wo can hold services if the weather keeps bad People wont come to church In a blizzard There will be services whether any comes or not daughter No matter what our difficulties may be they must not Interfere with our religious duties Remember that the ministers family sets an example for the settle mentSo Ruth sat dutifully down at tho wheeiy old cabinet organ and went over the hymns again doing her best to extract sweet music from the yellow keys And on the whole she succeeded better than you might think fpr she had a musical gift that seemed to bring out all the harmony the wornout Instrument was capable of She was a hopeful little body too and while she practiced she tried to comfort herself with the thought that I perhaps some day the clouds might be lifted and the opportunity given her to do better things Suddenly above the wheezing of tho organ and the howling of the wind In the chimney Ruth caught tho merry sound of sleigh bells She got up and rushed to the window lust in time to see the mall carriers covered sleigh drive around to the back of the house She was all excitement as she ran out to tho kitchen where old Jean muffled to his nose and covered with snow was telling Mrs Hayward In his queer broken English about tho big box ho had brought for the minis ter which box Mist Larson the ex press agent at tho depot had told him to be sure and deliver in tlmo for ThanksgivingThats like Nils Larson said the minister who had come In from his study Always anxious for some bodys happiness- What a time they had opening and unpacking that wonderful box which turned out to be a missionary box from Mr Haywards old church back in York state Clearly It had been packed by loving fingers with thought ful brains to guide them for It con tamed everything that was most like ly to be appreciated by a poor mis sionary in a remote frontier settle mentThere were oven cereals and crackers with several jars of beef extract and a store of nice canned things Mr Haywards sunken eyes lighted up as they rested on a heap of now books and magazines and still more when a pile of warm garments came to Jlght Including coats for the slit dren an overcoat for himsclft and 0I cloak that was plainly Intended his wife There never was such a wonderbox aa that Ruth thought as one treasure after another revealed Itself and her checks flushed when she opened a mysterious package and disclosed a pretty beaver hat looking as fresh and dainty as It it had come direct from tho milliner And pinned to the wrappings was a letter and in the letterwhat do you thInk Why a brandnew 10 billto be spent as tho writer stated for any little wants that the box didnt happen to supply God bless the dear people at home exclaimed the minister for vently while his wife quietly wiped away her happy tears And to think I said thero wasnt much to be thankful for said Ruth with mingled penitence and pleasure Stella O Florence u the Christian Advocates t ilarT64e0YlQq A 4ot rROYAL1 BAKING
