othermens labor Each of these things is called liberty although they are entirely differ ent To give an illustration A shepherd drives a wolf from the throat of his sheep when attacked by him and the

arrest of development caused by t tlje mother having drawn from the well a frog which made such an impression upon her mind as to cause the cessation of development of the cerebrum cere bellum and medullaoblougata This withthe absence 6f the ceHical verte bra and of a forehead making the eyes the highest point gave the childs head a markedresemblance to that of a frog The body was otherwise nor mally developed No scientist has ever been able to give a satisfactory ex planation of these freaks of nature We know that they happen during the the first three months of gestation due to maternal

friend of Berea cnstitutionalitymingling of white and color id students att 1Thel October A Demurrer was filed by the Berea peo ple attacking the constitutionality o the Day law which was argued in December at Nicholasville Qn that oc casiop the college authorities were rep t resented by John G Carlisle of Nelw York Mr Guy Mallon of pin inr1 ti and Senator C F Burnam of this place The State was represented byj BA Crutcher commonwealths at- torneyt j Judge Benton upholds the Day bill and sustains the constitutionality both In regard to the separation of the races and as to the provisions of the bill requiring schools for whites and negroes maintained by the same board to be 25 miles apart There is much local satisfaction over the decision Berea College was incorporated in 1859 and when it was learned that it- was proposed to cdhduct a mixed school at Berea strong feeling was aroused against the school in Madison county and in its early days efforts were made to demolish the buildings and break up the school This was done rafter the manner of Kluklux and for this some of the most prominent citizens of county were indicted The defendant contends that the ac is void on the ground that it contravene s the provisions of the bill of rights in the constitution of Kentucky and also the fourteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States The question of fact as to whether or not the law has been violated will be tried before a jury during the present term of the Madison court The fine for a violation of the act is fixed at 1q00 and 100 for each day that both

OLLIE JAMES Welcomes President To Demo cratic Platform His Speech Against Railroad Rate Bill H rWashington February 8 Representative Ollie James the First Kentucky district elicited considerable applause on the Democratic ide by a snort speech he delivered today against the Railroad Rate Bill or more properly on the attitude of President Roosevelt on the comingimmediately ceremonies wher President Roosevelt had just been deck red electod through the grace of a par y which is wit exceeding bad grac supporting him in legislation which he Declares to be the most important pending before Con gress Mr James in tlje beginning of his speechreferred to the fact that the last three Democratic jplaStorms made de mads for railroad legislation while the Republican platforms were silent on the subject MIs President Roosevelt leading the Democracy asked MrJ James or is he coming to understand from the mutterings and discontent throughout the republic that the DemocraJtic party was right and that he must got in advanc of it wield its sword Wear its uniform and use its campaigjn lance as he is doing by advocating this rate legislation here today I cha Ccontinued Mr James that the President has taken the plat from of the Democratic party that bears the bloody stain of Bryans faithful feet and has held it up today to the people of the country We welcome the President to the Democratic plat form Many good planks are in It I look forward to the time when he will send a message to Congress saying that he wants this House to put all trust made articles uponi the free list Ij look forward to the day when he will send a message to this Congress saying that we ought to gf bank to the pris tine days when itas esteemed right to behonest when the itaxation should be borne by the richjand the poor alike and ask us to rehabilitate the income tax in this country I look forward with faith to that But I want to say now to the President that this side of the chamber the Democracy of the country cares not how much you say we follow him when he fights under our flag We know that the soldiers of the United States followed him gal lantly wren he charged SanJuan Hill but no more gallantly sir than the Democracy him when he charges the HarrimanVanderbiltCas sattHill in this country of wealth and of greed I say to you that this bill ought to go further than it does You provide only a penalty of fine I say we ought to go back to the idea in this country that the rich oUght not to be permitted to purchase immunity from punishment by the payment of a fine You amend ed this law with the Elkins bill and what was your amendment The only thing you did was tq take from it the penalty of the penitentiary or the placing of stripes upon these violators of the law Let these big violators of the law see a penitentiary and observe its dissimilarity from a summer seashore resort and we will have more respect for the law in this country Let a pic ture be taken of one or two of them ih stripes instead of in automobile and we sir will then have the poor of the country tellin g- ministered us that the lawiSud alike on every citizen in the country Suppose you line them What is done They can raite the rate and it be paid back by the people But 1let you put stripes on them their of escape is rather slim I say Mr Chairman that the Democracy of the country has all along agitated this hervie our we are upon it and we invite the cordial aid and assistance of the Republicans We are willing for Theodore Roosevelt to lead us as long as he walks in advance of the

F R Toombs J CHAPTER XIII THE STORM ON TIlE CASPIAN days and two nights they thus traveling con 1lJTWO Two of the men did poling while the third man slept At times under the cover of favoring darkness Harvey would emerge from his hiding place and while Alma kept watch for pursuing Russians Irons assisted with the boat to give one of the hardworking Astra khans a rest On the third day they saw a boat overhauling them We must keep well under cover till thatboat has passed us said Harvey What do you make it out to be Char- ka It was a long low vessel without masts with high bow and stern It was propelled by four rowers two on each side and a fifth man sat in the stern with a paddle to steer n We have nothing to fear from that said Charka That is a Turkish ca Some rich merchant perhaps from Constantinople has brought his pleas tire boat all the way to the fair Think of carrying a boat across land That may be so or not said Har vey A boat might be built at Tiflis after the Turkish modeL It is safer tor us to be out of sight The long boat came on rapidly and Harvey and Alma again crawled under the hay Charka grumbled enviously as he saw the four rowers bending to their task The Turkish cayik seemed more anxious to avoid the hayboat than Charka was to avoid the cayik It teenkl to the opposite side of the riv er the efforts of the rowers were dou bled land at a burst of speed it went by At night they were within sight of the village of Salain Though it was a dark night Charka who had the lives of his passengers In mind forbade them coming from under the hay The steamboat of the Muscovites iras not yet returned up the river he said It Is lying at Salain to watch the boats that go out upon the Cas pian This was too much for the inquisi- tivenesst of Harvey He crawled to the edge of the hay to observe what was goIng on Charka he said that Turkish boat 1s up to something 1 notice the Russian is going to intercept it Theres Business of some kind going on Get nearer that we may hear the conver sation As they came opposite the lights of the town they saw the Russian boat shoot out from the land and in the radius of the strong electric light in her bow saw the cayik evidently trying to escape They are after the Turk We are In for it too wailed Charka Keep a cool head Charka said Harvey Remember a precious life depends upon your shrewdness I know tStpp where you are came a Voice from the Russian We will Inspect you Knowing the uselessness of refusing Charka made his Way toward the launch which had now steamed up alongside the cayik It Is true most excellent sirs a Turkisji voice from the cayik was say ing I am an Osmanli It is also true 1 that I am Hafiz Effendi who once acted ac merchant In those goods them n of Georgia sand Circassla had to sell I stole nothing but when a fa ther wished to place his beautiful daughter In the house of a prince I carried on the negotiations But that is all done Even the other day a girl was stolen but It was an stoleI1 lierYes and we want that American t incommandthat the goods I took to the fair and which I did not sell I shall return to Astra bad and thence to Constantinople by way of the caravan Go on said the officer and the cayik shot away Now you said the officer to Char- ka Hello It Is that slow old hay boat Well my friend where are you going dtoo my master am going to As trabad said Charka Does every one who goes to the fair at TIflis go from there to Astrabad V Not all excellent captain but at r Astrabad there are many caravans gathering and I can sell my hay The camels need It To ascend the Volga to the big fair at Nijni Novgorod would jGo will be a fine min ding of races at Astrabad No finer than at Tills said Charka as the hayboat slowly drew away The scum of the earth and the cream were at Tiflis The launch turned back to the wharf where It had been lying Charka felt that he was safe and as there was a slight breeze he raised his saiL He ltfl but one thing more to fear he reasoned and that was a Russian gunboat Boatloads of bay were npt in frequent on the Caspian and he felt t assured that it would not be difficult to hoodwink the captain of the gunboat Winder sail the boat made better prog t b revs anti was soon out on the Caspian where in the inky darkness nothing could be seen The slight wind that had promised so well soon died away and the boat now in deep water where the poles were useless was almost helpless Its big lateen sails flapped against the rude masts and the nitu grumbled This was not getting to Astrabad and they had had enough of watching over the lives of a Muscovite woman and a man from what they con sIdered another world The boat got into a current that carried It out far ther and farther and Harvey feeling secure in the darkness called to Alma to come out from her hiding place They sat together In the little deck house waiting for the breeze that must surelycome sooner or later By this time they are well in pursuit said Alma with a shudder It is death to be taken now It would have been death at any time my darling We must be cheer ful I wish we hid a cayik instead of this old hayboat The cayik is faster dear M Irons but would ltbe as safe 1 I fear that a Ftorm is coming In that little boat I would be afraid Id take my chances in that as soon as in this old hulk and there would be the additional advantage of getting somewhere before the storm came Ah M Irons it is a long across the Caspian 1t I am aware of that Alma Ive been long enough trying to make the nianydRysI fear you will never see them again dear M Irons Not see my windmills again Why Ill sell them at the big fair at Nijni Novgorod Surest thing In the world my darling Well tale our wedding trip qut of my commissions But dont eall me M Irons Cllme Harvey That Is my name as y urs is Alma But we do notIt is not like Rus sian girlstiYou are a Russian girl no longer dear As soon as we get to a place where there is an American missionary who can perform the or an American consulate you will be my American wife and the Russian guns can thunder all they please Hello Whats up now Suddenly the delayed wind bad come in squalls It whistled through the ropes and one snapped Charka could be heard outside cursing and bawling out Borders to his men Har see1Inmore rapidly through the water and careened to one side A flash of light fling showed him the three men hard at work trying t6 control the sails The storm you feared has come lit tle girl but do not be afraid Ill go outside and see what I cando to help Can I be of use he asked raising his voice to a shout Use Yes you can be of use bawl ed Charka Help me and my men gltntloninsunite the rope that had parted Har vey assisted and soon the sail was bel lying out before the steadily growing wind Now cried Charka exultingly as the old boat gathered speed Now the Turks cayik would not be so fast But his jubilation came too soon A sudden gust of wind tore the rope he was holding from his hand and one that had been fastened to a pin at the side of the boat snapped with a report like that ofa pistol It crackedtwo or three times in the air and then wound itself around Charkas neck A smothered curse ame from him as he strug gled with the rope As Harvey stepped forward tp assist him the sail gave an extra pull and Charka was dragged over the side of the boat into the sea A cry came from him as he sank and his men muttered their prayers as they stood shivering realizing the useless ness of trying to aid him Dont stand there like Idiots shout ed Harvey Youve got a small boat Get It Into the water and save Char- ka It cannot be done cried one He is already left far behind Get out the boat and I will go with you to rescue him No not you You are the oho who brought this upon us Many times have we sailed upon the Ca plan but did this thing happen to neerfbetore us rIght for taking an a Muscovite woman on the boat That was our curse Nonsense Get out the boat The two consulted a moment speak ing so low that Harvey could not hear UVe will go to rescue Charka said talkingButas another curse Harvey went into the cabin to get a lantern With the laid of this he watch ed the two men get the small boat oft Look well for him He wara good man said Harvey uHe was came the answer as the boat moved off We shall not return We will not remain on a boat with a VOTE Muscovite woman and an unbeliever We do not wish to kill so we leave Harvey stood aghast Alone he could not handle the sails He shouted to them to come back but they paid no attention to him He returned to Alma The fools have left us Charka was thrown overboard by a broken rope and I told them to go In the suialldboat to rescue them They took the boat preferring that In the storm to remain ing on this boat with us They say my darling we have brought a curse upou them The wind howled The boat shivered as It was driven along at increasing speed The timbers surely would not hold together long My darling What a terrible experi ence for you said Harvey taking her In his armsuIt is Impossible to con trol the boat The only thing I can do is to try to cut away the sails Dear Harvey I will help you But they had nothing save the sword of the inspector general of prisons with which to work With this they hacked at a few ropes they could reach but the sails were held by ropes that had wound themselves around the masts One mast and fell to the deck It was beyond tIC power of both to move it The speed of the boat seemed to be none the lesp for the loss of that mast The rain now came down In torrents The boat rocked and rolled and the waves swept completely over It We cannot remain beresaid Har vey W must climb up on the hay They soon had a perch in the hay which they kept by clinging to the cords that bound it to keep it in place One of Harveys arms was around the girl They rushed along hour after hour each moment fearing that the boat would sink or turn over Suddenly there was a loud crash The re- maIning mast Broke and wet plung Ing Into the s a The boat lurched rightfully and it now seemed impos sible for it to live in the foaming wa ters much longer Darling oneidearest sweetheart Kiss me Tell me once again that you love mje and with your strong arm around me I am con tejit to dle He kissed her passionately ylt is hard my beautiful darling to die when liberty is almost ours But I see no hope The boat Is filled and must surely sink If this be Gods will jet us not cry out against it Kiss me again God grant that this may not bb our last farewell CHAPTER XIV THE LOYERSAmSEPARATED cessation of the storm THE the old hayboat still afloat but the two lovers on top of the hay were In a pre- carIous condition The wind and rain had chilled Alma and she snuggled close to Harvey for warmth My darling he said as he hugged- her close This is indeed a terrible experience for you Rather would I have remained in the prison at THUs than subject you to such peril J Dear one they would have killed you and that would have killed me Is It not better for us to die together If we must die Yes It Is better but since the old hulk and Its load of hay have survived the worst of the storm we may yet run across a boat that will pick us up Let us hope so They spoke little as they huddled together on the hay Etch was straining to hear the faintest sound that might come from over the water Hark said Harvey Dearest did you not hear something- I fancied I hoped I heard a shout Can it be that Russian boats are out after us so sodn and in that storm The Russians would not Abe shout ing I fancy it is some one in distress Perhaps the Turks In that cayik are shouting for help With clasped hands they waited through the dark hours of the early morning Dawn began streaking the east r Harvey strained his eyed to pierce the scarcely perceptible light Not more than 2pO feet from them was a long low hull that seemed at rest The hurn of could be heard as the wind and rolling current carried them neareryWe are saved cried Alma and she wept on hI8br nstrHo there shouted Harvey at the top of his yoice Whoever you are help us- What is the voice that speaks out of fS came a shout In the ten us theWlarknl the other voice there rose Allah Ill Allah Mob ma Mohammed Resoul Ullahl- Mohammedans and most likely Turks said Harvey Yet that does not sound like aITurkish voice But any port in tstorm As the davfen Increased and the old hay bargeli nearer the other boat Harvey Could distinguish dark forms Hnpu upalong the deck rail He seetned lowfblack li rope was and he caught it after severe at tempts Those on board the vessel drew the hayboat toward it Who are you came a voice In a Jargon that Harvey happlJyunder6- tood AVq a wrlckbe nricnstnwnyson a combi nation men could Understand lie had been long enough In the east to know that when one crossed a frontier he did not at once leave the language of one country behind him and find a totally distinct tongue of another In use The people who trade across a frontier borrow from each other enough to combine their dialects and produce a sufficiently Intelligible language for intercourse and ns one recedes from the frontier the borrowed words from the other country are gradually lost until the tongue of the natives is in use Thus It was that no mntter with whom he came in contact Irons could make him self understood We will take you came the voice and the hayboat was drawn close ito the other Powerful arms were out reached to them and Irons stiff and sore from the experience of the night gathered his strength to pass Alma over yelJtonethe Inspector general of prisons which Alma still wore One of our ene mien r A sharp cry escaped Alma and Har sangutHave how you use that woman That is my wife She wears that uniform only to escape As he spoke he tried to leap to the stoppedhImRemain where you are till we un derstand this thing said lone who W I Remain where you arcl1 seemed to be an

him from the vessel Remain where you are The terrified Alma was taken with polite attentions to comfortable cabin fitted up in oriental luxury Here she saw weeping upon a divan the beautiful daughter of the murdered Biartelkls Koura exclaimed Alma throwing her arms around the girl But Koura thinking that she was being embraced by a man repulsed Almn Koura do you not know me I am Alma Juruieff Alma

were being fired The soldiers even came the boat where we were tiding under the hay A storm overtook us The captaltiof the boat was swept overheard and the other men deserted in a small boat thinking the American was the cause of the storm M Irons and I left alone have just been rev cued by the men on this boat At leash I am here but M Irons is held on the hayboat They thought as you did that I

felt his way For a short distance the water grew more shallow Then it got deep Atashortland The shore was sandy He moved slowly and cautiously It was difficult to locate where the tight had been He groped along wander Ing in many curves Trees were on the island but he could see no trace of a1 building After groping some time In the darkness he discovered what appeared to be a rock about five feet Iigh reeling the surface of this he I hnfl that it was not a solid rock but ra rocky formation with an opening on one side Lying fiat on the ground and peering in he saw a light far in the earth apparently from a lantern hung on a peg He slowly crawled in- sIde the cave After advancing for several feet he found that he could stand up and walk A voice came from behind a shelter intotheit iwas not the voice of a Russian tai Russians were the only people he had any reason to fear I have spoken said a calm stern voice within the concealed chamber I have given the treasure as it should be given But no my brother came a voice that seemed to Harvey to tremble with emotion It was a harsh cold voice not like the qther You have done well for yourself You have done well for the clans in the mountains But we have not fared as W should Was It not our courage that made the accu mulation of this booty possible Yes that Is so answered the first speaker But I am 1 ali ak chief of the Zannucks and ityras I who plan ned everything The wealth that came comyto hide here until the ameers soldiers had finished their search among our villages and the wealth that came from the Buddhist temples which we found the most valuable of all and the gold that came from the paymasters of the Russian soldiers whom we attacked and robbed All these are minemine Do you under stand Domitan It was Palpak the chief who in the interest of all his people downtrodden as they are by the wicked ameer strove to gaIn that with which we could buy horses and cattle and make the zannucks wealthy I have given you enough The rest must be divided among the people No said a third voice thick an guttural Domitan is right Palpak though you be chief We were with you Ipall the ventures Jt is not right that you should rob us now angrllyRobtYOUiOf what can I rob you whe you have nothing save what I have given you I tell you I am working Bot for wealth for my brothers but foe the whole people The Zannncka have keen downtrOdden and robbed by the ameer He demands more tribute than we possess He taxes us for our wives for our cattl and then his sol there steal the cattle He taxes us for ir families and the soldiers steal our children Our boys are compelled to enter the ameers army and our girls cprsei upon the ameer andjipon you 4 you cannot see the Justice of what lIt am doing But the ameer has de from his search He has some great affair now fri progress It Is time we took the treasure to the moun tains and distributed it among the pea and then begin again to plan IPleIt shall not be sp I swear IU These voice are three of us growled the And we are determined men said one who had not spoken before Do you intend to defy me demanded the one who called himself Palpak The three laughed We intend toyou will see what we intend Harvey began to catch the drift of things This he reasoned Is what Is pop ularly called honor among thieves Heres a band of four who have been successful In gathering treasure by robbing everything and everybody to enrich a people kept down by that miserable wretch of an ameer And now the only decent one if thei eIs such a thing as decency among them Is to be killed so that the other three can keep the treasure instead of putting It to the Who arc youf the robbers demanded use originally intended Three against one If I can save the leader I can no doubt enlist him in my behalf He crept to the wall and peered around A strange sight met his eager gaze On a wooden peg that had been driven into acreviceof the rocky hung a lantern On the stone floor of the cavern squatted four men in a cir cle and between them were many bags of gleaming Jewels bales of choicest fabrics and bags of gold It was not difficult to pick out Pal pak for his watchful eyes were rovin from one to the other as he remained on his guard against an attack But the plans of the other three were already laid It was evidently a precon certed arrangement The one cane d Domitan shouted Now and the three hurled themselves upon Palpak Hold on there Let that man alone shoutedHarvey rushing In His presence disconcerted the robbers and they stopped fighting Domi tan with a curse and gasping for breath rose to his feet and seized his knifeIWho are you the robbers lemand- ed In chorus The four seemed ready to against Harvey joinI My friends he said permit say that this conduct upon my owl territory to which you were not invit ed is most unseemly t ain the owner of this island having just purchased it from the Russian government Ill hun no murder committed hjre You The owner of the island of Ping Shong Thats what I said JAttis moment I own the island It is a lie said Domitan You die on your Islandtbeni He made a rush but Palpak Intercepted him Tile other two recovering from their astonishment joined with Domitan Suddenly from the outer cavern came the rush of booted feet and the clank of arms I Seize them all commanded Captain Serglus Orskoff to the force of Russian soldiers who rushed upon the combo ants and executed the order before the American and the robbers were aware of their presence recognizedOrskotr The American I have found you at last TO BE CONTINUED

daily attracted toV a large marine creature that would ap pear in the main channel of Seymour canal and our immediate vicinity ofsmon ster seemed to be their natural The whales generally travel in schoolsI and while at the surface to blow one brtheIt is the nature of the rorqual make three blows at intervals of toI two to three minutes each and then sound deep and stay beneath the sur face for or forty minutes As a wliale would come to the surface there would appear always at the whales right side and just about where his head would connect with the body a great long tail or tin judged by five IndianSIwide at the end and tapering down t the water where it seemed to be about eighteen inches in diameter looking very much like the blade of the fan of an old fashioned Dutch windmill The great club was used on the back of the unfortunate whale in such a manner that it was a wonder to me that every whale attacked was not In stantly killed Its operator seemed to have perfect control of Its movements and would bend it back until the end would touch the water forming a horseshoe loop then with a sweep it would be straightened and brought over and down on the back of the whale with a whack that could heard for several miles If the whal was fortunate enough to submerge It self before the blows came the spray would fly for a distance of a hundred feet from the effect of the stroke mak ing a report as loud as a yachts signal gunWhat seemed most remarkable to m was that no matter which way th attacked whale went or how fast the usual speed is about fourteen knots that great club would follow right along by ltd side and deliver those tre mendous blowsVat Intervals of about four or five seconds It would always enddi Thee a enemy yrhen It took its deep sound especially if the water was forty daAy t at night the whales would be attacked in the bay and within 400 yards of the fishery I do not know of any whales beta haagreat and soe8 on their backs Questioning the Indians
