Pases'' 1 Section 1 3Sth YEAR THE RICHMOND CLIMAX RICHMOND, MADISON COUNTY, KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1912 -- 8 Pages Section NUMBER 1 37 v Law to Protect Game and Fish. Every sportsman and former in Kon- tucks should make overy effort to secure the passage of the nowly proposed "Act for the Protection of Game and Fish througout the state. This act provides lor tho creation of a commission that shall look to tho preservation and propagation of nil kinds of game and fish that are deemed of public value. Under this act no one will bo permitted to hunt or fish on the premises of another without either a county or a state license and of course not without "the permission of the owner. Land owners and tenants may hunt on tholr own land without license. Wardens are to be appointed for each hot-bread- s, county, and all persons violating the game laws in any way will be liable to arrest and fine. Game and hunting par aphernalia in tho possession of violator, of tlic-lawill be seized and disposed of by the warden. Part of this money will bo paid to the warden, the rest sent to tho state treasury to creato to ba used in protecting and propagating the fame. A county licenso can bo secured for 81, a slate .liceuso for 82. A small portion of these fees will go to the County Court clerk for issuing tho license, the rest to the state fund.

Kentucky is far behind many other states in the protection of game. When about all the buffaloes were killed a law mistake in dealing with the game withwas passed forbidding anyone to kill in. the stato. them. Kentucky should not mako this lu.

It was introduced by Congressman Sulzer, of Now York, and is backed by the Postal Progress League,' an organization of broad-min- d d, patriotic citizens.

"You will all be here next Sunday, won't you? and at the same hour?" she said, rising. There was a sudden clatter of hoofs beyond the door. A man, well dressed and well mounted had ridden into the yard. As Mrs. Ferris came from the cabin he flung himself out of the saddle and, hat in hand, approached her. "I am hunting a place called the Barony; can you tell me If I am on the right road?" he asked. He was a man in the early thirties, graceful and powerful of build, with a handsome face. "It Is my husband you wish to see? I am Mrs. Ferris." "Then General Qulntard Is dead?" His tone was one of surprise. "His death occurred over a year ago, and my husband now owns the Barony; were you a friend of the gen eral's?" "No, madam; ho was my father's friend, but I had hoped to meet him." His manner was adroit and plausible. "Will you ride on with us to the Barony and meet my husband, Mr. ?" she paused. "Murrell Captain Murrell. Thank you; I should like to see the old place. I should highly value the privilege," then his eyes rested on Miss Malroy. "Betty, let me present Captain Mur rell." The captain bowed, giving her a glance of bold admiration. By this time the children had strag gled off into the pine woods as si lently as they had assembled; only Yancy and Hannibal remained. Mrs. Ferris turned to the former. "If you will close the cabin door. Mr. Yancy, everything will be ready for next Sunday," she said, and moved toward the horses, followed by Murrell. Betty Malroy lingered for a moment at Hannibal's side. "Good-by- , little boy; you must ask your Uncle Bob to bring you up --to the big house to see me," and stooping she kissed him.

Yet they had known much of him, for the gossip of the slaves, who had been his only friends in those years he had chosen to deny himself to other friends, had gone far and wide over the county. That notable man of business, Jonathan Crenshaw, was closeted in the library with a stranger to whom rumor fixed the name of Bladen, supposing him to be the legal representative of certain remote connections of the old general's. Crenshaw sat berore the mahogany desk with several account-book- s before him. Bladen stood by the window. "I suppose you will buy In the property when It comes up for sale?" the latter was saying. Crenshaw nodded. "He lived entirely alone, saw no one, I understand?" said Bladen. "Alone with his two or three old slaves yes, sir. He wouldn't even see me." There was a brief pause, then Crenshaw spoke again. "I reckon, sir, it you know anything about the old gentleman's private affairs you don't feel no call to speak on that point?" he observed. "All I know is this: General Qulntard was a conspicuous man In these parts fifty years ago; he married a flat-toppe-d The Boy at the Barony.

"Come, wake up, sonny!" The child roused with a start and stared into the strange bearded face that was bent toward him. "It's yo' Uncle Bob," continued Yancy in a wheedling tone. "Here, give us the spo'tln' rifle Yancy balanced the rifle on his great palm and his eyes assumed a speculative cast. "I wonder what's to hinder us from loading this old gun, and firing this old gun, and hearing this old gun go bang! Eh?" The child's blue eyes grew wide. "Please, Uncle Bob, make it go to tote!" bang!" "You come along, then," and Mr. Yancy moved off In the direction of his mule, the child following.

He was supposed to be Interested In the purchase of a plantation, and in company with Crenshaw visited the numerous tracts of land which the merchant owned; but though he professed delight with the country, he was plainly in no haste to become committed to any one of the several propositions Crenshaw was eager to subme," he told Bladen one day. They had just returned . from an excursion Into the country and were seated In the lawyer's office. "You say your father was a friend of the old general's?" said Bladen. "Years ago, In tha north yes," answered Murrell. Murrell regarded the lawyer in silence for a moment out of his deeply sunk eyes. 'Too. bad about the boy," he said at length slowly. "How do you mean, Captain?" asked Bladen. "I mean it's a pity he has no one except Yancy to look after him," said Murrell; but Bladen showed no in terest and Murrell went on: "Has Yancy any legal claim on the boy?" "No, certainly not; the boy was merely left with Yancy because Crenshaw didn't know what else to do with him." "Get possession of him, and If I don't buy land here I'll take him wet with me." said Murrell quietly. "1 am willing to spend five hundred dollars on this if necessary," "I'll have to think your proposi tion over," said Bladen. The immediate result of this conversation wa3 that within twenty-fou- r hours a man driving two horses hitched to a light buggy arrived at Scratch Hill in quest of Bob Yancy, whom he found at dinner and to whom he delivered a letter. Mr. Yancy was profoundly impressed by the attention, for holding the letter at arm's length, he said: "Well, sir, I've lived nigh on to forty years, but I never got a piece of writing befo' never, sir.

At the same moment Blount struck at Yancy with his whip, and his horses reared wildly, thinking the blow meant for them. Seeing that the boy had reached the ground In safety, Yancy relaxed his hold on the team, which Instantly plunged forward. Then as the buggy swept past him he made a grab at Blount and dragged him out over the wheels into the road, where he proceeded to fetch Mr. Blount a smack in the Jaw.

Even Uncle Sammy, who haa not been ofi the Hill in years, announced Uiat no consideration of fatigue would keep him away from the scene of action, and Yancy loaned him his mule and cart for the occasion. Yancy led the straggling procession, with the boy trotting by his side, his little sunburned list clasped In the man's great hand. The squire's court held its infrequent sittings In the best room of the Balaam homestead, a double cabin of hewn logs. Here Scratch Hill was gratified with a view of Mr. Blount's battered visage.

Presently she heard the beat of bis horse's hoofs as he came pounding alOBg the sandy road, and glanced back over her shoulder. With an exclamation of displeasure she reined in her horse.

A sign announced the dingy structure of logs nearest the roadside a tavern. From the door of the tavern the figure of a man emerged. He was burck-naire- a ana and a there vas about him a certain which a recent toilet performed at the horse trough' had sot served to mitigate. 'Howdy?" he drawled. 'Howdy?" responded Mr. Yancy.

"Let's liquor," said the captain over his shoulder, moving off In the dlr tion oi the car. "Come on, Newy!" said Yancy fol lowing, and they all entered the tavern. "Well, here's to the best of good luck!" said Murrell, as he raised bis glaBs to his lips. "Same here," responded Yancy. Murrell pulled out a roll of bills, one of which he tossed on the bar. Then after a moment's hesitation he de tached a second bill from the roll and turned to Hannibal. "Here, youngster a present for you," he said Hanni bal, embarrassed by the unexpected gift edged to bis Uncle Bob's side. "Thank you, sir," said the boy. ".Lets have another drink," sug gested Murrell. Presently Hannibal stole out into the yard. He still held the bill in his hand, for he did not quite know bow to dispose of his great wealth. After debating this matter for a moment he knotted it carefully In one corner of his handkerchief. In the tavern the three men were drinking Murrell with the Idea that the more Yancy came under the in fluence of Slosson's corn whisky the easier his speculation would be man aged. Mr. Yancy on his part believed that if Murrell wento bed Teason ably drunk he would sleep late and give him the opportunity he coveted. to quit the tavern unobserved at break of day. "When yo get to feelln like sleep, young boss, Mas'r Slosson he says 1 show yo' to yo chamber." It was Slosson's boy Eph. "Yes, you can show me my cham ber," Hannibal said. Eph secured a tin candle-stic- k with a half-burcandle In it and led the way into the passage back of the bar. They mounted a flight ot stairs and passed down a narrow hall. This brought them to the back of the building, and Eph pushed open the door on his right "This heah's yo chamber," he said, and preceding his companion In to the room, placed tho candle on a chair. The moon was rising and Hannibal went to the open window and glanced out For a moment he considered the night not unaffected by its beauty, then, turning from the window, he moved his bundle and rifle to the foot of the bed, where they would be out of his way, kicked off his trousers. blew out the candle and lay down Yancy had become more and more convinced as the evening passed that Murrell was bent on getting him drunk, and suspicion mounted darkly to his brain. "Have a drink with me!" cried Slos son, giving way to drunken laughter. 'The captain's dropped out, and I 'low it's about time fo these here festivities to come to an end. I'm thinking some of going to bed my self," said Yancy. He kept his eyes fixed on Murrell. He realized that if the latter could prevent it he was not to leave the bar. He never shifted his glance from Murrell's face. scowling now, tho captains eyes blazed back their challenge as he thrust his right hand under his coat "Fair play I don't know who you are, but I know what you want!" said Yancy, the light In his frank gray eyes deepening. Murrell laughed and took a forward step. At the same mo ment Slosson snatched up a heavy club from the back of the bar and dealt Yancy a murderous blow. A single startled cry escaped the Scratch HHIer; he struck out wildly as he lurched toward Murrell, who drew his knife and drove it into his shoulder. Yancy dropped heavily to the floor. How long the boy slept ho never knew, but he awoke with a start and a confused sense of things. It was evidently very late, probably long after midnight but where was his Uncle Bob? He sank back on his pillow intent and listening. A chilling terror that gripped him fast and would not let him go, mounted to his brain. Where was his Uncle Bob? Why didn't he come to bed? Memories of idle tales ot men foully dealt with in these lonely taverns flashed through his mind. ue sua irom the bed, and for a long moment stood cold and shaking, his every sense on the alert With infinite caution he got into his trousers and again paused to listen, since he feared his least movement might betray blm. Next he secured his pack, and was ready for flight Encumbered by his belongings, but with no mind to sacrifice them, he stepped out upon the shed and made bis way down the slant of the roof to the eaves. He tossed his bundle to the ground and going down on his knees lowered his rifle, letting the muzzle fall lightly against the side of the shed as it left his hand, then he lay flat on his stomach and, feet first wriggled out Into space. When he could no longer preserve his balance, he gave himself a shove away from the eaves and dropped clear of the building. As he recovered himself he was sure bo heard a door open and close. and threw himself prone on the ground, where the black shadow cast by the tavern hid him. At the same moment two dark figures camp from about a corner of the building. He could Just distinguish that they carried some heavy burden between them and that they staggered as they moved. They passed out of sight and breathless and palsied, Hannibal crept about a corner of the tavern. He must be sure! Presently he heard a distant sound a splash surely it was a Bplash a utue later me men came up tne lane, to disappear In the direction ot the tavern. Hannibal peered after them.

On the River. Betty stood under a dripping umbrella in the midst of a downpour. Just arrived by the coach that plied regularly between Washfour-hors- e ington and Georgetown, she had found tho long board platform beside the canal crowded with her fellow passengers. Suddenly she became aware of a tall, familiar figure moving through the crowd. It was Bruce Carrington. At the same moment he saw her, and with a casual air that quite deceived her, approached. "You're leaving tonight?" he asked "Yes isn't it miserable the way it rains? And why are they so slow why don't they hurry with that boat?" "It's In the last lock now," explained Carrington, and gathering up Betty's hand luggage, he helped her aboard. By the time they had reached Wheeling, Betty had quite parted with whatever superficial prejudice she might have had concerning river-meThis particular one was evidently a very nice river-maan exception tc his kind. He mado choice of the steamer on which she should continue her journey, and thoughtfully chose Tho Naiad a slow boat "I haven't a thing to offer her this is plain madness of mine!" he kept telling himself, and then the expression of his face would become grim and determined. No more of the river for him he'd get hold of some land and go to raising cotton; that was the way money was made. Slow as The Naiad was, the days passed much too swiftly for him. When Memphis was reached their friendly Intercourse would come to an end. There would be her brother, of whom she had occasionally spoken he would be pretty certain to have the ideas of his class. The days, like any other days, dwindled. The end of it all was close at hand. Another twenty-fou- r hours and Carrington reflected there would only be good-bto say. "We will reach New Madrid tonight," he told her. They were watching the river, under a flood of yellow moonlight Carrington, with his back against a stanchion, watched her discontentedy ly. "You'll be mighty glad te have this over with, Miss Malroy " he said at length, with a comprehensive sweep toward the river. "Yes shan't you?" and she opened ber eyes qucstlonlngly. "No," said Carrington with a short laugh, drawing a chair near hers and sitting down. Betty, in surpriso, gave him a quick look, and then as quickly glanced away from what she encountered In bis eyes. As she looked, suddenly pale points of light appeared on a distant headland. "Is that New Madrid Oh, is it, Mr. Carrington?" she cried eagerly. "I reckon so," but be did not alter his position, "But you're not looking!" "Yes, I am I'm looking at you. I reckon you'll think me crazy, Miss Malroy presumptuous and all that but I wish Memphis could be wiped off the map, and that we could go on like this for ever!" "You mustn't talk so I am nothing to you " Yes, you are. You're everything to me," said Carrington doggedly. You shall love me " Sho was pow erless In his embrace. She felt his breath on her cheek, then he kissed her. Suddenly his arms tell at his side; his lace was white. I was a brute to do that Betty, forgive me! am sorry no, I can't be sorry!" They were alongside the New Mad rid wharf now, and a certain young man who had been impatiently watching The Naiad's lights ever since they became visible crossed the gang-planwith a bound. "Betty why in the name of good ness did you ever choose this tub?' said tho "Charley!" Carrington stepped back. This must be the brother who had come up the river from Memphis to meet her but her brother's name was Tom! Ho looked this stranger this Charley over with a hostile eye. offended by his good looks, his confident rounner, in which he thought he detected an air of ownership, as if certainly he was holding her hands .longer than was necessary.

If it's any satisfaction to you. I do," admitted the Judge. You ought to." Mahaffy drew for ward a chair. The Judge filled his glass. What's the news from thn land. Ing?" Mahaffy brought his fist down on the table. "I heard the boat churning awar round back'of the bend, then I saw the lights, and sho tied up and they tossed off the freight 1uen she churned away again and her lights got back'of the trees on the bank. There was the lap of waves on --the shore, and I was left with the half-dozen miserable loafers who'd crawled out to see the boat come in. That's the news six days a week!" By the river had come the Judge, tentatively hopeful, but at heart expecting nothing, therefore immune to disappointment and equipped for fail ure. By the river had come Mr. Mahaffy, as unfit as the judge blmseir, and for the same reason, but sour and bitter with the world, believing always in the possibility of some miracle of regeneration. At the Judge's elbow Mr. Mahaffy changed his position with nervous suddenness. Then he folded his long arms. "You asked If there was any news, Price; while we were waiting for the boat a raft tied up to the bank; the fellow aboard of it had a man he'd fished up out of the river, a man who'd been pretty well cut to pieces." "Who was he?" asked the judge. "Nobody knew, and he wasn't con scious. I shouldn't be surprised if he never opens his lips again. When the doctor had looked to his cuts, the fellow on the raft cast off and went on down the Elk." It occurred to the judge that ho himself had news to impart. He must account for the boy's presence. While you've been taking your whiff of life down at the steamboat landing, Mahaffy, I've been experiencing a most extraordinary coincidence.

During all the years of Its corporate dignity the village had rffcver boasted any building where tho evil-docould be placed under restraint; hence had arisen Its peculiar habit of dealing with crime; but a leading citizen had ddnated half an aero of ground lying midway between the town and the river landing as a site for the proposed structure, and the scattered population of the region bad assembled for the raising. "We don't want to get there too early," explained tho Judge, as they quitted the cabin. "We want to miss the work, but be on hand for the celebraUon." "I suppose wo may contidenUy look to you to favor us with a few eloquent words?" said Mr. Mahaffy. "And why not, Solomon?" asked tho Judge. The opportunity he craved was not denied him. The crowd was like most southwestern crowds of the period, and no sooner did the Judge appear than there were clamorous demands for a speech. He cast a glance of triumph at Mahaffy, and nimbly mounted a convenient stump. He extolled the climate of mlddlo Tennessee, the unsurpassed fertility of the soil; he touched on the futuro that awaited Pleasantville; he apostrophized the Jail. PresonUy the crowd drifted away In the direction of the tavern. Hannibal meantime had gone down to the river. He haunted its banks as though he expected to see his Uncle Bob appear any moment The Judge and Mahaffy had mingled with the others in the hope of free drinks, but in this hope there lurked the germ of a bitter disappointment After a period of mental anguish Mahaffy parted with his last stray coin, and while his flask was being filled the Judge Indulged in certain winsome gallantries with the fat landlady. "La, Judge Price, how you do run on!" she said with a coquettish toss of her curls. That's the charm of. you, ma'am," said the Judge. He leaned across the bar and, sinking his voice to a husky whispor, asked: "Would It be perfectly convenient for you to extend me a limited credit?" "Now, Judge Price, you know a heap better than to ask me that! she answered, shaking her head. "No offense, ma'am," said the Judge, hiding his disappointment, and with Mahaffy he quitted the bar.

Betty returned to the porch and seating herself on the top step, with her elbows on her knees and her chin sunk in the palms ot her bands, gazed about her miserably enough. She was still there when half an hour later Charley Norton galloped up the drive from the highroad. Catching sight of her on the porch, he Bprang from the saddle, and, throwing his reins to a black boy, hurried to her side. Inspecting your domain, Betty?" he asked, as ho took his place near her on the step. "Why didn't you tell me, Charley or at least prepare me for this?" she asked, almost tearfully. How was I to know, Betty? 1 haven't been here since you went away, dear what was there to bring me? Old Tom would make a cow pasture out of the Garden of Eden, wouldn't he a beautiful, practical, sordid soul he is!" Norton spent the day at Belle Plain; and though he was there on hi3 good behavior as the result of an agree ment they had reached on board The Naiad, ho proposed twice. Tom was mistaken in his supposi tion that Betty would soon tire of Belle Plain. She demanded men, and teams, and began on the lawns. This interested and fascinated her. She was out at sun-uto direct her laborers. She had the advantage of Charley Norton's presence and advice for the greater part of each day in the week, and Sundays he came to look over what had been accomplished, and, as Tom firmly believed, to put that little fool up to fresh nonsense. Ho could have booted him! As the grounds took shape before her delighted eyes, Betty found leisure to institute a thorough reformation indoors. A number of house servants were rescued from the quarters and sho began to Instruct them In their new duties. Betty's sphere ot influence extend ed itself. She soon began to have her doubts concerning the treatment accorded the slaves, and was not long In discovering that Hicks, the overseer, ran things with a heavy hand. Matters reached a crisis ono day when, happening to ride through the quarters, she found him disciplining refractory black. She turned sick at the sight Hero was a slave actual ly being whipped by another slave while Hicks stood looking on with his hands in his pockets, and with a brutal, satisfied air. "Stop!" commanded Betty, her eyes blazing. She strove to keep her voice steady. "You shall not remain at Belle Plain another hour." Hicks said nothing. He knew it would take more than her saying eo to get him off the place. Betty turned her horse and galloped back to the house. She felt that she was In no condition to see Tom Just at that moment, and dismounting at the door. ran upstairs to her room. Meantime the overseer sought out Ware in his office. HI3 manner of stating his grievance was singular. He began by swearing at his employ er. He had been Insulted before all the quarter his rage fairly choked him; he could not speak. Tom seized tho opportunity to swear back. "Sent you off the place, did she; well, you'll have to eat crow. I'll do all I can. I don't know what girls were ever made for anyhow, damned if I do!" he added. Hicks consented to eat crow only after Mr. Ware had cursed and ca joled him Into a better and more for giving frame of mind. Later, after Hicks had made his apology, tho two men smoked a friendly pipe and discussed the situa tion.

A simple germinator tester is made of two ordinary dinnor plates with smooth edges. On o hundred of the seed to bo tested are counted out and placed on a damp cloth or blotter and covered by another cloth or blotter of the samo size. This is laid upon one of the plates and tho other plate inverted over it. Tho tester should bo kept in a warm place and enough water added from time to time to supply ample moisture for germination, but not an excess. In testing corn, each ear should be tested, and a special box is necessary. The method of testing cord has been so often explained that nearly every farmer is familiar with it. Bulletin 150 of this Station explains the process in detail. The quality of corn this year is exceptionally good, duo to the unfavorable season, and no farmer should neglect testing his seed corn. E.
