JWWHBBBiBWiBOMTMWfv ff" sa.'.f.3fj PWB muni "They Were as Full of Fight as a Couple of Kilkenny Cats." repellent lawbreakers left their cover when the thicket was again occupied by a stealthily moving figure. The newcomer, straining to overhear the conversation between Jules Legar and Dutch Frank, wore that familiar and derisive mask of yellow. "It's a trap to get our masked friend down to Wharton's quarry, where the bunch is waiting to gather him in," said Legar. "I haven't got any love for that med- dling masker, but this is too good a chance to miss. I've got some heav ier scores than bis to settle, and right now Is the time to do it" With a cold chill of apprehension the Laughing Mask remembered he had no method of reaching the distant quarry except by foot, and long before he could hope to reach his destination Legar would have had ample time to carry out his fiendish purpose. But anything was better than this maddening inaction, and although realizing the futility of his course he raced frantically along the road through the dust clouds raised by the black automobile, fast disappearing in the distance. That swiftly moving conveyance bearing Legar and his vicious follower turned off into a seldom used wood road and shortly afterward came to a stop a little way back of the d granite quarry. As Legar peered over the edge of the perpendicular cliff, from which great blocks of stone had been sheared away by powerful explosives, an evil smile of steep-walle- d the embrace of his companion and stood gazing in startled surprise in the direction from which it came. At figure came that moment a thick-se- t catapulting through the hedge and bore down upon the Laughing Mask like a human cannon ball. The exasperated police captain, realizing he could no longer hope to take his enemy by surprise, had staked everything on this sudden rush. But the nimble-foote- d fugitive was off like a sprinter trying to beat a record, aud by the time he reached the road he had gained a wide leap over his lumbering pursuer, who shortly gave up the chase and slowly retraced his steps, blowing like a winded truck horse. "This is the second time you've harbored that criminal," he barked at the proudly erect young woman who stood facing Margery Golden, "an' as an officer of the law I give you warning It will be worse for you if you don't tell us where he keeps himself under cover." "I shall tell you nothing," answered the openly defiant girl, "your bullying threats do n?i frighten me in the least, and I shall see that your Insulting conduct Is reported to the proper authorities." With this parting shot the unruffled girl deliberately turned her back on the raging police captain and, with quiet dignity, made her way toward d mansion. Nothing the remained for that utterly routed arm of the law but to withdraw from the field of this disastrous verbal battle with the best grace ho could muster, but already, in his somewhat limited range of mental activity, he had devised a new scheme for trapping the elusive masquerader, whose immediate capture he was more grimly determined upon than ever. To his surprise Margery Golden promptly and steadfastly rebelled at the part which he had chosen for her to play in the consummation of this scheme, which savored to a certain degree of unscrupulous trickery. It was only by fanning the smoldering jealousy of the sorely tried girl that he was at last able to wring from her a reluctant consent to do his bidding. "The chances are he won't leave doll for a minute, that even though he thinks you are In terrible danger," had been his argument, which finally carried the day. Fearing that his hesitating confederate might exercise her woman's prerogative of suddenly changing her mind, the wily strategist Immediately put white-pillaregood-lookin' triumph distorted his scar-furrow- face. For Just beneath him were the figures of the portly police captain and two of his men crouching behind a ponderous upright slab of granite. Standing a little apart from the others was the sober-face- d daughter of his enemy. He saw the authoritative officer motion the dejected girl Into the hiding place, and as with apparent reluctance she obeyed this mute signal the spy drew back from the e and rejoined bis companion, who was waiting by the automobile. "They're down there, all right" Legnr savagely exulted, In response to the questioning look of Dutch Frank, "and when we blow out the side of that cliff they are going to get crushed like rats In a trap." "Then we can croak that bunch whenever you're ready, gov'nor," answered the blond gunman, with the red lust of murder in his eyes.

Such manifestations of feelings are the first signs of the making of agreeable people and they should be encouraged, but never blighted by harsh and cutting remarks.

Bank stock, surplus and undi Tided profits, will be assessed on a basis of 60 per cent of its fair cash value in the future in this state. The Senate passed the State Hankers' As- ociation bank deposit bill taxing bank deposits 10 cents on each $100. The bill had already passed the House and its passage in the Senate makes the victory of the administration complete, as the measure is the last advocated by the State Tax Commission. The proposition of taxing the banks on a basis came up in an amendment proposed by Senator Scott. The amendment provides that, "in addition to paying an annual tax at the same rate which may be fixed by law on other personalty for state purposes, the local rate of taxation of shares of banks, trust companies and combined bonks and trust companies, representing their capital, surplus and undivided profits, shall not exceed 60 per cent of the rates which are respectively imposed on other property subject to taxation within the territorial limits of the authority levying such tax." The amtndment also repeals Section ' 4092 of the Kentucky statutes. The bill passed by the vote of 27 to 26. The Senators voting for the bill were Antle. Arnett, Pooles, Bradley. Clay. Combs, Biehl, Ford, Frost, Helm, Hildreth, Hiles. Knight, Littrell, Montgomery, Moore, Moreys, Overstreet, Peak, Rayburn, Rogers, Scott, Strick-lett- , Taylor, Thompson, Trigg, Wilj j j j j j Frankfort. j I ' ' j liams: total, 27. The Senators voting against the bill were Rrock, Leach, Lewis, Sanders, Zimmerman, Porter; total, 6. Those not voting were Evans, Glenn, Hufl'aker, Huntsman, Salmon. The Senate adopted the report of the Conference Committee, receding from the amendment providing that the deeds must show the true consideration, which had been put in the State Tax Commission bill by Senator San- ders. The report of the committee was adopted by the vote of six. The bill then was put on its passage, and passed by the vote of 24 to 12. Tho bill of Representative Green to require all males between the ages of 16 and 45 to register with the Adjutant General by June 1, 1917. and to pay fee of 50 cents for the creation of an emergency military fund, was killed by the House. Speaker Duffy held the bill was not germane to the call for the extra session. The House of Representatives, by the vote of 53 to 23, refused to consider the bill. Representative Lyon raised the point of order that the bill is not germane to the call of Governor Stanley for the extra session for the purpose of considering revenue and taxation measures. Representative Green contended that it was germane because it sought to raise revenue and that a situation had arisen whereby it undoubtedly was necessary to raise this fund. Measured by the call of Governor Stanley, Speaker Duffy held that the bill is hot germane, but left the question as to whether the contingency which has arisen since the call demands such legislation. The question then was put to a vote. The bill of Representative Hutch-crafwhich increases the franchise tax of corporations, excepting banks and trust companies, building and loan association and foreign insurance companies from 30 cents on the $1,000 of authorized capital stock to 50 cents, was adopted as a substitute to the Harvey excise bill and passed by the t, ' House, 71 to 3.
