Western Newspaper Union News Service. Ky. Sixty-threroad Lexington, engineers and members of fiscal courts of the state registered for the annual short course in highway engineering at the University of Kentucky. Experts in engineering in Kentucky and from the best of roads of Washington addressed the group of enthusiasts. There must, from the natural order of things, be a large mileage of dirt roads throughout the country, said R E. Tarns, of th. Department of Roads, Washington, D. , hence the need for building them with some care. Dirt roads should be well graded and some attention given to their upkeep. Mr. Tarns gave an illustrated lecture in the evening on "good road of roadways work," with slides throughout the United Si. tes, illustrating the various methods of road construction and some results. "The hope of road building in the future in Kentucky lies in the small, board of road commis- ioners in each county,-- ' said Russell Gaines, road engineer of Jefferson county. "An economical organization can be effected where there is harmony between the road commissioners and the county engineer as an executive working with their Mr. Gaines asserted. "In Jefferson county we have installed su.h an or- system ganization, and a of expenditures. A great saving is made possible by such fPcient service and organization. Mr. Gaines said that m.Jer the new organization of road work 'o Kentucky road inspectors and engineers are appointed more for ability than for political reasons, thus helping in the general good roads movement "Road building is in its infancy,' said Prof. D. V. Terrell, "and the purpose of the short course in highways engineering is to assist the road engineers in qualifying themselves for carrying on the work. The theories of road building are being formulated after much experimenting and by the collaboration of ideas. "The state examiner and inspector at Bowling Green a few weeks ago said there had been a waste of 25 to .'0 per cent in the expenditures for road building in Kentucky. This is not the fault so much of misappropriation of funds, but is due largely to a lack of knowledge and good judgment in building the roads. It all calls attention to the absolute necessity in Kentucky of action which may be best accomplished, perhaps, by a gathering such as this and the interchange of ideas." Dean Walter E. Rowan and Rodman Wiley, Commissioner of Public Roads in Kentucky, also were on the program for addresses. E. L. Duffy, Assistant State Highway Engineer, delivered an address on "Location and General Surveying for County Roads." e non-politicself-checkin- g ' Gullions "Indians," otherwise known as the "Savage Second Regiment of Kentucky," arrived at Fort Thomas from the Mexican border.

CITY Miners Strike at People's Mine, Forcing Cit of Henderson to Suffer Weather Most Disagreeable. denderson, Ky. With the mercury at very low point and the most weather of the winter pre- vailing, citizens of Henderson are face to face with a coal famine, the first in the history of the city. The strike of miners at the People's mine, the largest producing mine in the county, is the cause of the shortage of coal. The mine produced 400 tons daily. Forty-fivminers walked out on a strike last week, leaving only one other mine, and local dealers who re- ceived coal by railroad to supply the city. In an attempt to relieve the grave situation the miners at the Nicholson mine are working day and night, but the mine can not furnish enough coal. The dealers are receiving only a few cars daily, not enough Some of the o supply residences. large manufacturing plants and the eight public schools will be compelled e to close.

The switchmen connected with the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen will not strike. After u conference which lasted late into the night, representatives of both sides announced that all differences had been settled and the railroad managers had conceded the points de- uianded by the switchmen. The four presented by, the union men were adjusted in the first hour of the conference, but the union ofli- day and the rials added the eight-hou- r time and a half for overtime demands to the claims already submitted. The committee from the Managers' association protested thsft they had no formal notice of the wuge and time demands and the union officials withdrew their demands just before the meeting adjourned. "Everything has been adjusted," said James Murdock, vice president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen. "We told the managers how day much we desired the eight-hou- r and time and a half for overtime, but we did not force our demands. The vote is now nullified. Ask Mr. llnnnauer for the details." "We diave reached a satisfactory agreement with the men." said George Uunnauer, chairman of the managers' committee. "The danger of a strike is passed." Dispatches from New York stated that iu case of a general strike the government was reudy to take over the management of all the railroads have involved. This plun woukl been opposed by the rail chiefs, according to New York and Washington messages. Considerable bitterness was manifest in the conference, the railroad managers charging the yardmen with seizing on the international political crisis as an added leverage in their demands. j , ! London. Feb. 8. King George in opening parliament said that the response of the allies to the invitation of the president of the United States outlined their aims as far as could be done at present. The king added : "Threats of further outrages upon public order and the common right of humanity serve to steel our determina-grievance- s tion." The opening of parliament, always picturesque, was shorn of much of its color and pomp. The peers wore none of the customary robes and regalia. The king was clad in a khaki uniform and all the lords and members of the house of commons who are entitled to wear either khaki or navy blue followed the example of the monarch. There were other innovations in keeping with the time of war. The imperial escort consisted of officers The of the overseas fighting force. royal gallery in the house of lords was set opart for wounded soldiers.

Washington. American shipowners who have been holding their vessels in port because of inability to obtain guns for defense against submarines probably will have their difficulty solved in a few days. Strong intimations were given in official quarters that, while the Government will not actually arm merchant craft or even formally advise arming, a way will be found to put weapons at the disposal of owners who desire to prepare for defense against illegal attack. The enforced idleness of the American merchant fleet is being viewed with growing disquiet, and the general view here is that not only the export trade, but the nation's standing before the world demands that American vessels continue to ply the high seas without regard to the German proclamation, which the Government has repudiated with the most severe means iu its power short of war.

There, beside glowing furnaces men toiled over incandescent annealing boxes and cauldrons of molten metal. There gigantic track cranes swung bowls of liquid fire from crucibles to mold beds. And there the harried Legar, bewildered by the sudden bright light ran like a pelted hound down the sandy paths between forge and coke oven and cauldron crane. There, seeing his way blocked by a group of round-eyeLithuanians, he swung, up into the iron network of catlike, the cable bridges, with his pursuer still close at his heels.

Then, awakening to the fact that they were traversing a desirably sequestered stretch of road, he watched intently for certain prearranged signals from accomplice.

And since the once valiant Red Egan showed so craven a spirit that nothing short of a quart of three-sta- r brandy could tranquilize his shaken nerves and since Louie showed no signs of returning from the mysterious realms into which the white sheet had whisked him, Legar promptly and wrathfully decided to take the matter into his own hands. He would lay this ghost, he announced, or something would go smash in the process. But he had no intention of approaching that intimidating mausoleum without duo and definite preparation. With him he took a powerful pocket flashlight, a Colt automatic pistol and a couple of extra clips of cartridges. jut the instrument on which he reposed the most confidence was a One-Lam- p afore-mentione- d gun-met- One-Iam- p Mar-Ker- y TENTH EPISODE THE LIVING DEAD "I'm opposed to your plan, sir," Enoch Golden declared with heat, "and I always will he opposed to it!" David Manley, as he stared across the table at the mined old millionaire, tried to control himself to patience. "But you acknowledge that you are equally opposed to Legar's intrusions Into this house, to having his secret agents planted about at your elbows. But when I work out a plan that offers a reasonable promise of trapping Legar and his men, you stop the whole business by declaring it's lacking in dignity!" "Dignity is something which departed from this house the day Legar rirst forced his way into it!" was Golden's bitter retort. "Precisely!" cried young Manley. "His whole campaign has been one of intimidation, of threats and assaults aad reprisals They have been trying to fight us with terror. So my contention is, why not give them a Why not dose of their medicine? fight them with their own weapons, and in doing so, perhaps go them one better?" "Hut I can only repeat my convictions that your plan can't succeed!" protested the tremulous-voiceold d But there was a limit to what that team of spirited blacks would endure. And they suddenly, to all intents and purposes, determined to follow their own line of travel at their own rate of speed, for, as the driver sat on the box apparently sawing on the reins, that exasperated team plunged suddenly forward, swerved across the road, and went galloping down a bypath which was little more than a cart trail winding in and out through slopes of greensward and shrubbery. Half a mile deeper in that shrubbery this runaway team would surely have reached the spot where a black limousine stood hidden away in the , shadow of had not still another and an equally unheralded factor entered into the situation. This factor took the form of a roadster in which was seated a man wearing a yellow mask. His irruption into that orderly little procession, indeed, proved as abrupt as Louie's eruption from it.

This innocent-lookindisk, which could be slipped into a vest pocket as easily as a timepiece, was known to the habitues of the Owl's Nest as the g pressed between its slender metal walls. d Legar was not a coward. Yet as he stood in the clammy midnight air of the Golden mausoleum and quietly removed the screws that held the top on the black casket beside him, he found that combination of silence and gloom and unsavory surroundings a little more of a strain on his nerves than he had anticipated. Yet as he lifted back the sable cover of the casket he did so with a hand that was still steady. laurel-copse- high-powe- r One-Lam- p seemed plainly suspicious of both linancier.

As his car approached the runaway cab that mysterious stranger, known as the Laughing Mask, stepped to the running-boarof his roadster, leaning far out as the two swerving vehicles drew together. Louie, whatever he may have thought of that approach, had little means of evading it. To swing off what narrow road remained before him teemed frankly suicidal. To lash his team to greater effort was already out of the question. To take his hands from the reins, even, along that uncertain road, was equally foolhardy. So the strange race went on. the swaying and bounding cab with a white-facegirl tossed about under its hood, the leaping and lurching roadster, every second drawing closer down on its quarry yet every second threatening to turn turtle over one of the grassy embankments above which it shuddered and When She Tried to "Pump a Needleful d One-Lam- p Afl cms Legv might have done, and icgar laughed a ne hrronted his enemies. might have done without great difficulty, had not a trace of his older ob"Do you want to take me alive?"

She was trudging, a little breathlessly, up a sandy slope, with her straining eyes still fixed on the moving lanterns about the ruined mausoleum. Then, swinging apparently out of the empty air about her. a circle of steel, suddenly encompassing her arm, brought her to an abrupt stop. With one quick movement Legar tore the motor veil from her head, twisted it into a coil, and flung it about her neck. And all the while the Iron Claw, grappling at her arm, held her as a steel trap might. She was already dizzy with pain when she heard the sharp crack of a revolver shot close over her shoulder. This was followed by a quick shout and a muttered oath. She felt herself forcibly flung from Legar's arms into the arms of another man panting breathlessly up the sandy slope. She could see this man, even as he held her from falling, stop to level his gun at the fleeing figure of Legar. She could see him shoot again, and still again, at the same moment that Train and the plunging automobile came throbbing and panting up to the scene, s, d half-nake- d d d i d o' Dope" Into Dead Man's Face Appeared. j Her Mistress, a leather-upholstere- d not to discourage, the redoubtable Legar. That astute young adventuress, Betsy Le Marsh, alias Williamsburg Elsie, who. with the aid of divers forged recommendations, had installed herself in the Golden household, repeatedly and stubbornly reported that David Manley was dead. Williamsburg Elsie also expressed a strong desire to migrate from the house in which she found herself so inquisitive a maid, since that house, she declared, was too full of "queer that Margery Golden is to go in one of the carriages. And that lonely spot will strike him as precisely the right pot for making a coup." "And what do we gain by that?" "Well fill our big dollar mausoleum with thirty big policemen, and round up the gang before Legar can even smell a rat." But Enoch Golden remained unconvinced. "Well, it may be a brilliant plan, but you can please leave me out of it," he finally announced. "That's just what I've been asking for." explained Manley. "All I want is to be allowed to conduct it in my own way." David Manley, however, did not conthirty-thousan- d duct that strange funeral altogether in his own way. Carefully as every detail had been planned, there were one or two minor features which at the time escaped his attention.

For under the funereal outfit of this placid-eyedriver rtv d things" for her comfort When, at Legar's suggestion, she had tried to "pump a needleful o' dope" into her altogether unsuspecting mistress, a dead man's face had suddenly appeared between her and the bedroom door. And on two different occasions, after midnight, when she had ventured down to the housekeeper's telephone to send in a secret message to Legar himself, she had found herself confronted by a ghost in white. Nor was Betsy Le Marsh the only malcontent Even Red Egan himself, " one of the best men in all the group that clustered about the Owl's Nest, had of late shown unmistakable signs of mental disturbance. A dead man's ghost, he declared, had looked in through one of the headquarters' windows. Red Egan, it ifl true, had promptly emptied his at that phantasmal intruder, but with nothing more to show for it and six than a shattered window-saspanes of broken glass. When the to put an end to all such absurdities, had by the force of many dire threats and oaths compelled both Louie and Red Egan himself to repair to the "cold-steelh six-shoot- er master-crimina- l, One-Lam- p Thence he took up his flashlight, and pressing close to the coffin's side, stood studying the pallid face that lay surrounded by its even more pallid drapery of white satin. He stared at that pallid face long and intently. He stared at it with studious and narrowing eyes. Then he did a strange and an inexplicable thing. Lifting his maimed right arm that ended in its shank of steel, he brought it down with a crash on the glass cover of the casket. Then, as though infuriated by some unreasoning hatred for the pallid face still staring so impassively up at him. he struck again. This time the blow fell directly on the head between the white satin swath-ings- . But that flailing arm, instead of striking a human head of flesh and bone, crashed down through a thin shell of fiber and tinted wax. Legar, focusing his light on that shattered mask, emitted a short bask of triumph as the meaning of it all came home to him. He leaned for several minutes over the violated casket, staring at it with insolent yet abstracted eyes, pondering just what move could lie beyond so intricately engineered a subterfuge. And the answer to that question came more promptly and more directly than he had anticipated. For as he stood there, turning a piece of the tissue meditatively over in his fingers, the electric bulbs that strung the mausoleum roof broke into sudden light From different quarters of that shadowy building, at the same time, stepped a group of hidden officers, headed by David Manley himself. So quickly and so quietly did that transformation take place, indeed, that the man leaning over the casket had neither time nor chance to change bis position. He merely blinked a little stupidly at the revolver which glimmered in Manley's hand. Then, with a gesture that seemed equally stupid, he reached for his watch and held the heavy case meditatively between his fingers. "Stick 'em up!" Manley was at the same time commanding with a curt head movement towards Legar's hands. "It may have taken some work, but this is the time we gather you in!" wax-covere- through that Giant's Causeway of bro-- ; ken rock, he felt grateful enough, re membering what had happened, to be still alive. And sore as he was in body, he was even more bruised in spirit at the memory of the fact that his enemy. Jules Legar, had at the last moment escaped from his clutch. The take of Fire. d gun-met- Legar, lucky as his escape had been, knew that his margin of safety was still too narrow for much Immediate comfort of either mind or body. So he crawled away as best he could, nursing his strength when he came to cover and going on again when some passing light showed that cover to be none too dense. But he did not give up until he had reached higher ground. There he was able to hide himself in a thicket and rest for an hour or two. But to remain in that neighborhood until morning, he knew, would be out of the question. About that whole suspected area, he felt, the police would surely throw a cordon, and the resource of disguise was no longer at his disposal. Already from where he lay, he could see dozens of moving lamps of workers about the mausoleum ruins. He could also see the glow of a powerful pair of headlights, apparently on a motor car threading its way to the scene of tae explosion. And to the north he could even more distinctly see the fiery tongues of the chimney flares above the Westingham foundry, where hundreds of toilers, turning night into day, worked about the great blast furnaces and cauldrons of molten metal. In a foundry such as that, he suddenly remembered, lay his best chance for escape. Disheveled as he was, he could pass unnoticed among those sooty workers. And when the night shift went off, he told himself, he could slip away in their midst, un noticed and unchallenged And If the worst came to the worst he could crawl into hiding somewhere about the tangle of machinery under that foundry roof itself, and there lay up until he knew the coast was clear again, with the chance of stealing a puddler's "Jumper" for a disguise and a dinner'pall or two full of food for a lineal. the electric lamps throwing out their wavering, long columns of white light as they came. Then the stranger, arrested by certain gasping and gurgling sounds from the throat of the girl in his arms, stooped down and tore the constricting veil away from the slender, white column of her neck. And Margery, opening her eyes, saw that it was the Laughing Mask bending above her. "It was Legar!" she gasped as Train, followed by her father, came panting up to where they stood. "And there he goes now!" cried the Laughing Mask, pointing down the long lane of light columning out from the car's lamps. Across that narrow river of light they could catch a glimpse of a tall figure skulking off into the darkness. "Follow that man with your car." the Laughing Mask suddenly cried out to the chauffeur. "No car could travel through country like that!" protested Train. "Then keep your lights on the main road to the west here, so as to pick him up if he tried to break through on that side. I'll swing around by the foundry yards and head him off in the east!" And the next moment the man in the yellow mask had disappeared in the darkntss. Golden and his daughter stood staring after him. Two minutes later the blackness half-garrote- d for as Legar struck snarling at bis face he ducked low on his narrow perch and at the same moment whipped his revolver from the side pocket of hts coat. Yet Legar, with a movement equally prompt, kicked viciously at the fingers clustered about before the weapon itself the could be brought into use. The next moment that weapon fell with a hiss and splash into tha lake of molten metal beneath them. Then the struggle became one of tendon against tendon, of straining muscle against muscle, of mortal strength pitted against mortal strength. There, like animals of the wild, high in some Amazonian eyrie, the two strangely entangled figures fought and struggled and clawed and struck. In the matter of mere physical strength Legar seemed to have the advantage. And what under ordinary circumstances might have proved a disability could now be turned to his advantage. For the iron claw at the end of his right arm. hooked securely into the network of steel behind him. held him there without effort and without strain. His opponent, on the other hand, found it no easy task to make sure of his perch above that cauldron of molten metal. His arm shook with the tension imposed on his overtaxed muscles. His fingers became numb with pain, threatening to lose their prehensile power, and even as he fought he weakened to a realtzaJon that h must change his hold, It was as he mw;uvered to bring about this shift A position that the Legar, alert for the most trivial adv.tage, saw his chance. Swinging " .s body suddenly free fiow its footing on the narrow ledge 01 metal where he stood, he pndnlumed towards his momentarily unstable op ponent, throwing his feet forward and upward, as he did so, with all the force of a football player kicking a double gun-butt empty-hande- ever-intimidati- ever-watchf- punt. imThe force of this unlooked-fopact was too much for the man in the mask. He tottered back, caught franr stabbed by a series of flame flashes, followed by the repeated bark of a revolver. From the gloom still nearer the shadowy piles of the Westingham foundry came an answering series of shots. that had swallowed him up was "That means he's making for the foundry, sir!" cried the excited Train as he swung his car about. "Then, for God's sake, get us there, as quick as yon can," commanded Enoch Golden as the car lurched and pulsed and crawled on between the broken shrubbery, in perilous search for some open pathway. But both Legar and his pursuer were by this time well beyond their line of vision. That desperate-mindemaster criminal, in fact, realizing that his enemy was pressing close at his heels, mounted a Blag pile, dropped flat, and emptied his revolver into the darkness, where the Laughing Mask should have been. But the wary pursuer, dropping low beside an empty pitch barrel, held his Are and waited. The moment he heard the crisp sound of footsteps along the slag slope he once more took up the pursuit. That pursuit led through a narrow lane between great piles of structural d side him. dropped the full length of Its diagonal course before he could make sure of his clutch, and came into violent collision with the heavy iron block of a crane ladle. There, by the blow, he fell sprawling across a polished steel cable which drooped floorward between the block and its empty metal pot. He tried to clutch that cable as he fell, but his speed proved too great and his overtaxed fingers were too weak. As he fell along its polished surface, however, it offered sufficient resistance to carry his limp body beyond the peril of that open lake of molten metal, which, his frantic brain kept telling him, meant death. And as he dropped weakly from the cable loop to a pile of molding sand lying between a casting box and an empty spill trough, a score of watching men gave utterance lu a shout of relief and a score of waiting hands were there to help him to his feet. So intent were those astounded Ironworkers on watching that perilous tall, however, that they paid scant attention to the second figure climbing spiderlike higher along the blackened ironwork of the blackened roof. They caught no glimpse of him as he scrambled, sooty and panting, through the ventilating flue that opened on the roof itself. Nor did any eye follow him as he crept, gorillalike, along the perilous slope of that roof until he came to the end of the building. Along this end he found a lightning rod, running from the peak of its roof to the ground. He promptly tested the strength of this wire, satisfying himself carefully, foot by foot by means of one hand and an iron hook which struck and clung to the metal with the vicious tenacity of an eagle s claw. When he reached the ground, still breathing heavily, he looked cautious ly about Then, making sure he was not observed, he slipped into the shadow of a pile of iron ingots, once more waited and listened, and then, crouching low, crossed the foundry yard and climbed the high board fence surrounding it.

Both wills now are in steel cases, sunk in concrete, thoroughly protected against fire and thieves, as they are hermetically sealed. They are placed in the west wall of the court house at Fairfax. The cases have glass fronts, two pages of each will being exposed to view through the glass fronts. Velvet curtains are drawn over tese fronts when the documents are not on exhibition, shutting out the destructive rays of the light. Thanks to the foresight of the officials of the library of congress and the intricate and expert work of Mr. Berwick the documents as they were written are accessible to everyone. There is no charge or fee to view them. The court hoj;e in which they are kept was built in the same year that General Washington's will was probated and filed, 1800. The building and the most precious of its contents are of the same age, 116 years.

Backache In spite of the best care one takes of oneself, any part of the human machine is liable to become out of order. The most important organs are the stomach, heart and kidneys. The kidneys are the scavengers and they work day and night in separating the poisons from the blood. Their signals of distress are easily recognized and include such symptoms as backache, depressions, drowsiness, irritability, headdizziness, aches, rheumatic twinges, dropsy, gout. "The very best way to restore the kidneys to their normal state of health," 3ays Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N.
