Yet nothing but a racer, he remembered as he snatched out his watch, could get him to the Central Tower building in time. His next thought, however, took him tearing down the village street like a madman. For the name of "Cedarton" had brought into his mind yet another name, the name of "Bobby Evart."

SIXTH EPISODE THE SPOTTED WARNING Enoch Golden had never formed the habit of taking others into his confidence. And when events came into his life which seemed to leave him more and more dependent on his immediate associates he betrayed an occasional tendency to focus his nebulous resentment against that situation on the exasperatingly imperturbable figure of David Manley. ' Young man," he said, fixing his sec- retary with a Bteely eye, "I came to this decision twenty long years ago, and nothing is going to change it. That woman was sent from my home, and she will never enter it again." Manley, looking down at the note still held in his hand, thought of the face of the troubled and girl who had so recently clung to his arm and asked him to plead her cause. And the memory of Margery Golden brought fresh courage to him. "But this woman who was once your own wife is only asking for a glimpse of her own daughter again. Surely that is asking little enough!" "And I repeat tftat I won't allow it. I have saved my daughter from the dangers that woman's wrong surrounded her with, i have saved her from " "Have you?" interrupted Manley, de liberately meeting the older man's stare. Any retort the older man was about to utter remained unspoken, for at footman that moment a entered the room and crossed to the desk with a salver of mail in his hand. Manley. looking up, eyed that servant resentfully, and with a touch of suspicion. This intruder, he promptly surmised, was a new figure in the household retinue. "Be so good as to knock when you enter this room," was the young secretary's sharp command. "Very good, sir," answered the new footman, scarcely raising his eyes. 'H'h!" Golden scoffed, looking up from the letter which he had just opened. "Since you're so ready to ask favors, here's another friend to ask them for. Here's the captain of the circle you're so ready to champion! But instead of asking favors you see, he demands them!" He tossed the folded sheet angrily across the desk top. Manley took it up and read it. "Your happiness hangs on one small scrap of paper. That paper is the portion of the Windward island chart tear-staine- d gery's getting her things together, Manlev. vou send Train, the chauf feur, here to me for his instructions." Manley, promptly crossing to tlie door, was startled to find the figure of the new footman standing close beside it as it was swung open. Ten minutes later, when Manley returned to the library with Train at his heels, he found Enoch Golden staring down at a sheet of paper lying on his desk. At the center of this paper stood a large black blot. "It's the Spotted Warning," said Golden, his heavy face furrowed with a trouble deeper than he was willing to admit. "But how, in God's name, did it get here?" Manley, after staring at the strangely-spotted sheet, stared even more intently at the ceiling directly above the point where the paper lay on the desktop. A momentary look of satisfaction flitted across his face as Golden turned to him with a crisp command to precede Margery to Cedarton and there explain both the reasons for her visit and the precautions to be exercised during that visit. "And as for you, Train," continued old millionaire, turning the grim-eyechauffeur, "I want you to take to his my daughter out to Cedarton as quickly as your car and the speed laws will let you carry her. There are special reasons for this, remember. And from the moment you leave this house, don't let anything or anybody stop you." Thirty minutes later Margery Golden, surrounded by her hags, sat back in the swaying automobile, puzzled over this new and unexpected turn in the tide of events. And as mile by mile swam by beneath the hurrying man in the drivwheels, the keen-eyeing Beat found a load lifted from his own shoulders. Yet at the next turn in the road his suddenly departed driver. For as he from that keen-eyetook this turn and speeded up along a dustless stretch of open highway, he saw a figure run out to the middle of the road. It was not the fact that this figure stood directly in his path that most disturbed him. It was the discovery, as he drew down on It, hand of that this figure wore a cloth across the eyes, with a apron falling almost to the end Traces the Telephone Circuits. of the nose, that brought the redoubtsuddenly up in his which you still hold.

"And while MarI d l AJTIHUI well-behave- d servants telephone below stairs- - Part of that guardea conversation was carried on by Wrench, the new footman, and much of it had to do with the very situation so disturbing the aged millionaire in the room above. For it was Legar explaining that a masked stranger at the last moment had snatched the girl from their hands and had apparently carried her off to some hiding place of his own. This was followed by the command to deliver still another message to Enoch Golden, with the final warning that every wire leading into the Golden house must be cut as soon as possible. The new footman, in obedience to these orders, quietly traced out the telephone circuits to the basement and there severed the wires with a pair of scissors purloined for the purpose from Mile. Celestine's workbag. Then, watching his chance, he carefully penned a note, wording it as Legar had duly instructed him to do. Then he returned to the neighborhood of the library door, with his ferretlike alertness masked under his customary im mobility of face. It was not until his restless master discovered the telephone wires to be dead, and went storming through the house to determine the reason for this misadventure, that Wrench realized his chance had come. Slipping into the deserted library on the pretext of adjusting the rugs, he stopped before the rosewood table, hesitated a moment, and then lifted the heavily-chaselid of Golden's cigar case and dropped the note inside. A moment later he had left the room, unobserved and unsuspected. It did not take many minutes of waiting to confirm the wisdom of Wrench's movement. For Enoch Golden, striding restlessly back into his library, sank with a sigh of weariness into the armchair beside the rosewood table. For a moment cr two he stared abstractedly and unhappily about him. Then, with still another sigh, he reached out and lifted the heavily-chaselid of silver. His fingers, instead of coming in contact with a corseted in gold, rustled against a sheet of paper. Automatically he picked it up and unfolded it. Written on that mysterious sheet he found the following: "To figh. me further In this it useless. And unless you open your eyes to this fact it will soon be worse than useless. It will be fatal.

"Not unless it was lighted!" explained Evart, shouting for his mechanician as he rounded the gloomy corner of the hangar itself. "But it is lighted." Manley told him.

"Get aboard," commanded Evart. "We're going to try for it anyway!" He turned to his helper. "Hey, Brown, throw my friend up that fur coat of yours!"

They Fought With Gasps and Grunts. on the campanilelike balcony crown- ing that skyscraping structure, he knew, even as he saw two figures standing there before him, that he was too late. That much he knew, even before he caught at enough breath to call out a .warning to Enoch Golden or swing about and spring for the second figure, already shrinking back In the shadow cupola. For in of that the hand of the second figure Manley had already caught sight of a sheet of paper. It was a yellowed scrap of ?aper, and litand time-wortle more, but to Manley X had becema the emblem and pennon of a iperata cause, a flag to be rallied rouad and fought for. to the last ditch as the last gasp, as harried soldiers Sght through th smoke of battle ror "sjieir colors. And Manley, as he clinched with gar's stalwart emissary, fought for It. Nor was his opponent one to be despised. The two men fought aloig the crest of that midnight tower as two mountain lions might fight along the brink of an Andean precipice. They fought with gasps and grunts, with strange guttural sovnds, with teth bared and face distorted, blind to the blows that were given and taken, unconscious of the fact that the very paper for which they were fighting bad already fallen to the cupola floor, and from there had been blown by t'ae north wind to the furthermost edge of the cornice circling the stone column supports. Golden himself was already reaching for that paper when Legar's confederate caught sight of It, broke fro?n Manley's grasp and dove bodily for where It lay. Manley, a second later, followed him. There, half astride the balustrade of coppered wood painted to look like marble, the fight was renewed. Each crouched low as he fought, drunkenly conscious now of the abyss that yawned so close to his feet. But still they fought. Then a second breath of night breeze, sighing through the tower top, carried the paper slowly along the cornice edge. It was Legar's man who saw It as It moved. He wrenched away, twisted about, and caught at It as it fell. But already he was too late. It lifted with the wind, drifted and eddied slowly about in the moor lignt, and floated swayingly down Into the darker canyon of Broadway, wtare it was soon lost to sight. But neither Manley nor his enemv saw that descent, for Legar's man as he lurched suddenly forward threw ail his weight on the outstanding copper cornice, painted white to look like marble.

V. r ms -- tT.s, Jm use irrpv ;AlVITk , YerminKe For the Children ) The writer has frequently heard the remark that "after the war we will go to Western Canada." It does not occur lo those making the remark that if they wish to secure lands in Western Canada, whether by homestead or purchase, the best time to go is now. After the war the welcome will be just as hearty as ever, but the chances are that laud values will increase and today homesteads are plentiful and land is reasonable in price. There is no question about what the land in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta will do, what it will give under proper cultivation. Farmers in Western Canada are paying for their land holdings with the proceeds of last year's crop. That this is no idle statement may be gleaned from the three following items, which are picked out at random : "In the spring of 1916 a of land was offered for sale at $17.00 per acre. There were 105 acres of summer-fallowhich because the owner could not at the time find a buyer, were seeded to wheat. A yield of 40 bushels per acre, 4,200 bushels all told, grading No. 1, was obtained. The price the day the grain was sold (which was very early in the season, before grain prices advanced to round about $2.00) was $1.00, which brought the handsome total of $6,720.00. Three hundred and twenty acres at $17.00 equals $5,440.00, so that a buyer, by placing less than half of the whole under crop, would have made a profit of $1,280.00." Messenger, Robson Robson, Sask. "That the 'Indiana Boys' farm this year raised sufficient crop to pay for the land, all the machinery and all overhead expenses as well as make a handsome profit, is the information given by N. B. Davis, the manager. The wheat yield was over 22,000 bushels. Of twelve cars already sold, nine graded No. 1, and Mr. Davis has sold over 2,000 bushels locally for seed at $2.00. Naturally, when he gets to Indiana he will be big booster for Alberta." Bassano Mail, Bassano, Alta. "Oscar Castalor, who bought land at Blusson after the crop had been put in last spring, for $3,800.00, has threshed 3,900 bushels of wheat, which is worth at present prices about $7,500.00. He refused an offer of $5,000.00 for the land after the crop had been taker, off." Lethbridge Herald, Lethbridge, Alta. Reports from the wheat fields are highly encouraging and show that the wheat crop of many farmers in Western Canada was highly satisfactory. Coblenz, Sask. W. A. Rose has threshed an average of 33 bushels per acre and 83 bushels of oats. Oleichen, Alberta. Up to date 2 bushels of grain have been received by local elevators, of which nearly 180,000 bushels were wheat. Seventy-on- e cars of grain have already been shipped. Stoop Creek. Sask. James McRae has threshed 5,400 bushels of grain, 2,000 bushels of which were wheat, grading No. 1 Northern. One field averaged 44 bushels per acre, and a large field of oats averaged 83 bushels.

Following is the translation of the entente allies' reply to President Wilson's peace note, transmitted to the state department by Ambassador William CI. Sharp in Paris: "Ambassador Sharp to the Secretary of State. American Embassy, Paris, Jan. 10, 1917. "The allied governments have received the note which was delivered to them in the name of the government of the United States on the l'Jth of December. 1910. They have studied it with the care imposed upon them both by the exact realization which they have of the gravity of the hour and by the sincere friendship which attaches them to the American people. "In a general way they wish to declare that they pay tribute to the elevation of the sentiment with which the American note is inspired and that they associate themselves with all their hopes with the project for the creation of a league of nations to insure peace and justice throughout the world. "They recognize all the advantages for the cause of humanity and civilization which the institution of international agreements destined to avoid nations between violent conflicts agreements which would prevent, must imply the sanctions necessary to insure their execution and thus to prevent an apparent security from only fucilitating new aggressions. "But a discussion of future arrangements destined to insure an enduring peace presupposes a satisfactory settlement of the actunl conflict. "The allies have as profound a desire as the government of the United States to terminate as soon as possible a war for which the central empires are responsible and which inflicts such cruel sufferings upon humanity. Not Time for Peace. "But they believe that it is impossible at the present moment to attain a peace which will assure them reparation, restitution, and such guaranties to which they are entitled by the aggression for which the responsibility rests with the central powers and of which the principle itself tended to ruin the security of Europe; a peace which wonld, on the other hand, permit the establishment of the future of European nations on a solid basis. "The allied nations are conscious that they are not fighting for selfish interests, but above all to safeguard the Independence of peoples, or right, and of humanity. "The allies are fully aware of rtie losses and suffering which the war has caused to neutrals as well as to belligerents, and they deplore them; but they do not hold themselves responsible for them, having in no way Pither willed or provoked tills war, and they strive to reduce these damages in the measure compatible with the inexorable exigencies of their defense against the violence and the wiles of the enemy. Understand U. S. Position. "It is with satisfaction, therefore, that they take note of the declaration that the American communication Is in nowise associated with that of the central powers transmitted on the 18th of December by the government of the United States. They did not doubt, moreover, the resolution of that government to avoid even the appearance of a support, even moral, of the authors responsible for the war. "The allied governments believe that they must protest In the most friendly but In the most specific manner against n 237,-S1- Zeppelins on open towns, the destruction by submarines of passenger steamers and of m trchantmen even under neutral flags, the cruel treatment inflicted upon prisoners of war, the juridical murders of Miss Cavell, of Captain Fryatt, the deportation and reduction to slavery of civil populations, etc.? "The execution of such a series of crimes perpetrated without any regard for universal reprobation fully explains to President, Wilson the protest of the allies. "They" consider that the note which they sent to the United States in reply to the German note will be a response to the questions put by the American government, and, according to the exact words of the latter, constitute a 'public declaration as to the conditions upon which the war could be terminated." "Presideut Wilson desires more: He desires that the belligerent powers openly affirm the objects which they seek by continuing the war; the allies experience no difficulty in replying to this request. "Their objects in the war are well known ; they have been formulated on many occasions by the chiefs of their divers governments. Their objects in the war will not be made known in detail, with all the equitable compensations and indemnities for damage suffered, until the hour of negotiations. Their Terms Stated. "But the civilized world knows that they imply in all necessity and in the first instance the restoration of Belgium, of Serbia, and of Montenegro and the indemnities which are due them; the evacuation of the invaded territories of France, of Russia, and of Rounumia, with just reparation; the reorganization of Europe guaranteed by a stable regime and founded as much upon respect of nationalities and full security and liberty of economic development which all nations, great or small, possess, as upon territorial conventions and International agreements suitable to guarantee territorial ami maritime frontiers against unjustified attacks; the restitution et provinces or territories wrested In the past from the allies by force or against the will of their populations; the liberation of Italians, of Slavs, of Roumanians, and of Tcheco Slovaques (Czech Slavs) from foreign domination; th; enfranchisement of populations subject to the bloody tyranny of the Turks ; the expulsion from Europe of the Ottoman empire decidedly . . . (apparent omission) to western civilization. "The intentions of his majesty the emperor of Russia regarding Poland have been clearly indicated In the proclamation which he has just addressed to his armies. "It goes without saying that if the allies wish to liberate Europe from the brutal covetousness of Prussian militarism it never has been their design, as has been alleged, to encompass the extermination of the German peoples and their political disappearance. "That which they desire above all is to Hsure a peace upon the principles of liberty and justice, upon the inviolable fidelity to international obligations with which the government of the United States has never ceased to be inspired. "United in the pursuits of this supreme object, the allies are determined, individually and collectively, to act with all their power and to consent to all sacrifices to bring to a victorious close a conflict upon which they are convinced not only safety and prosperity depends but also the future "SHARP." civilization itself.

New-Jersey- Philadelphia. Jan. 13. Harry Thaw, wanted in New York to answer to an indictment that he kidnaped and whipjml Frederick Gump, Jr., of Kansas City, cut his throat in West Philadelphia on Thursday. According to Captain of Detectives Tate, Thaw's whereabouts were learned during the day and the house was surrounded. AYheu detectives entered the place, according to Tate, they found that Thaw had cut his wrists and throat. Thaw. Tate says, asked that Dr. Khvood Kirby, a phyiscian of this city, be sent for. When the physician arrived he ordered Thaw removed to St. Mary's hospital, where Doctor Kirby is head phyiscian. In the room Thaw occupied were found a bottle of poison tablets and a razor. It is said that Thaw had two telephone talks with his mother at Pittsburgh and that he decided to attempt suicide upon learning that the family had made arrangements to have him turned over to the New York authorities. He was fully clothed when found. Dr. John Wanamaker, a police said cursory examination of Thaw's wounds indicated he had a fair chance to recover. His wrists were hacked several times and there were two gashes in his throat. There are two versions of the affair. One is that Thaw was located in the house and that when he learned it was surrounded he attempted suicide. The other version is that Thaw attempted suicide In the morning; in the house communicated with the Thaw family in Pittsburgh; that the family telephoned back to Doctor Kirby, who has attended members of the Thaw famlly.and that Doctor Kirby, in turn, notified the police. well-know- To Offset Eastern Powers' Domination of Pacific Corporation Acting for British Is Reported Building Docks on Clipperton Island.

One of the questions with which county superintendents will have to deal at the approaching meeting of their association here is the method between the state and of Act for promotion of vocational education.. Under this act the federal government proposes to appropriate large sums for agricultural and industrial trade training in the public schools upon condition that the states appropriate an equal amount. State Superintendent V. O Gilbert Is sending out circulars to the county superintendents, containing a digest of the measure, and they will propose to the General Assembly a plan whereby the state may take advantage of the offer. For tne flrst ear tne government would appropriate $1,700,000, increas- ing it annually until the total of $7,-000 000 Jn 1923.24.

The call from the people for reformation of Kentucky's archiac system of taxation at a special session of the General Assembly to be called by Governor A. O. Stanley for that purpose, and for no other purpose, daily is becoming stronger and more insistent. In the course of his New Year's Day address to the Louisville Board of Trade, Governor Stanley said he was alive to, the needs of the state for a new and better system of taxation, and he commended the recommendations of the State Tax Commission, but be declared most positively that he would not call the legislature to Frankfort in an extra session until he has the word of the members that they would attend strictly to the business of framing a new tax law and that they would not undertake to raise other questions and inject other issues into their deliberations. The members of the Louisville Board of Trade, in common with the members of commercial organizations in all of the cities .and many of the towns of Kentucky, had indorsed the recommendations of the Tax Commission as an excellent outline for the construction of a new system, and had asked the Governor to get the lawmakers at work at once and they were put out to hear him say he would not take a chance on the General Assembly. federal governments under the Smith-Hughe- s 1nn CORN, OATS, WHEAT FOR FEED Interesting Experiment at Wisconsin Experiment Station With Three Lots of Heifers.

(Special j PROTECT JUDGE AND PRISONER No Guardsmen in State Special Company May Be Formed Execu- j tive Threatened. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Murray, Ky. In line with his announced intention to give the mob "a chance to lynch the governor of Kentucky first," Governor A. O. Stanley arrived here and took charge of the situation growing out of the threats made by a mob against the lives of Circuit Judge Charles Bush and ComAttorney Denny Smith. monwealth Governor Stanley was accompanied by H. B. Hines, chairman of the state prison commission, and Warden J. B. Chilton of the Eddyville penitentiary. The special train on which Governor Stanley arrived was left standing with steam up, ready to take them from Murray if further demonstrations were made against their lives. Open threats were made on the streets that any attempt to remove Judge Bush from Murray or to prevent the trial of Lube Martin would place the govern- ors own me in danger. Judge Bush, in conference witn uov ernor Stanley, said he ordered the ne gro returned from Hopkinsville to save his own life. Mob leaders assured the governor that the negro would not be harmed when returned for trial. Governor Stanley urged the mob to let the law take its course and warned them of his determination to see that the state was not disgraced by another lynching. He was listened to respectfully.

Kentucky has O militia except that on the border. Judge Bush and Attorney Smith spent several hours in a hotel here guarded by deputy sheriffs. The line of watchers extended almost to the judge's bedroom door. The situation is a sequel to scenes of disorder in the circuit court, after Judge Bush announced that the case of Lube Martin, negro, charged with killing Guthrie Duiguid. a white man, would not be tried until next month. The men in the courtroom became an enraged mob. They surged almost against the judge's desk, howling that the negro be tried at once, or that the judge surrender himself in the negro's place. The judge remained cool and, rising from his seat, attempted to address the men, but his voice could not be heard. Threats to lynch both the judge and attorney were the commonwealth shouted. Others in the mob yelled that the hotel of the two men would be dynamited If an order were not made for the return of Martin. After a consultation' between counsel and Judge Bush, it was agreed to return the prisoner for trial. The feeling against Martin has been intense in Calloway county since Duiguid was shot to death several weeks ago. The negro has been kept in jail at Hopkinsville, for to have held him in Murray would have been to invite the lynching of the fellow. He was removed to Murray under heavy guard and would have been tried but for the petition of J. T. Holt, attorney appointed to defend him, that a continuance might be granted so that the evidence might be fully developed. It was felt that when announcement would be made of a continuance mob violence against the negro would be attempted, so he was spirited away. v- j 4 Krankfort Correspondence Their tender little 'insides injured by them.
