JAn enthusiastic meeting was held at the court house last Saturday afternoon and addressed by Hon W C McChord Judge I H Thurman and W F Nei kirk Each gentleman made an inter rngspeech Judge hurman in

themselves being thoroughly atiafied adie ihtediththe progress of the organ ization and both agreed that the only thing now necessary to crown the or jpamzation with complete success is sound judgment Mr McChord in all of his speeches has impressed upon his hearers that this movement is not fprthe purpose of fighting the American Tobacco Com pany that it is a plain business pro po sition and must be carried on by busi ness methods He hasi told you tha y ouitthe American Tobacco Company Mr McChord and Judge Thurman advise all their friends to be careful in what they say and doI Tobacco is now

will be commenced at early date Remember next Saturday January 12 is the last in which you can pool your tobaccoJut 1600 acres have been pooled ih this county and it is believed 100 acres more will be pooled by next Saturday The Turkey Trust Editor SunWill you please allow me asmall space in your valuable paper I nave just finished reading the Sun I am very much pleased with the stand The Sun has taken in favor of the farmers The farmer is indeed a mighty factor but the farmers wives are what J want to talk about and the turkey trust In 1905 we realized 12 and 13 cents per pound for our turkey rand bought the best bred birds we could find at high prices to improve our stock and give the best that we could produce to the consumers During 1906 we worked hard and tried to raise is many as we could expecting to realize at least 12 cents per pound which is I think the minimum for our workO We were encouraged all summer by talk of high tyrices but just before selling time some pieces without signatures came out injrthe papers saying that turkeys wou1r not be as high as were last year and then along comes the Trust I and gets our turkeys for less than wan e c raise them It takes a whole years work to raise turkeys not only for the wife butthe children also If the low prices are caused by over production I suggest that we rest during 1907 an raise only enough turkeys for each farmers Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner and let the Trust raise his turkeys in his own pack yard and get rich off of his own labor What do you say good women A FARMERS WIFE DEATH OF 5 MR WYCOFF One Of the Countys Most Prominent Citizens Last Friday morni gthe people of Springfield and Washington county were shocked to hear of the death of one of our leading citizens Mr Matt Wycoff who expired at 1

only to the bereaved family and the closefriends of the deceased but also to the com coupta whole Mr Wycoff was one twhose influence for good was felt by all with whom he came in contact and his place in our midst will not be easily filled Whereas An Allwise God has called from earthly tenements our beloved friend neighbor and coworker we the members of Fenwick Local No 1013 realize that our loss is a great one therefore be it Resolved That we make this public announcement of our grief in the death of our worthy honorable and friend Resolved That in his death our or ganization has lost one of

buried yesterday morning from S Dominics church Mr Goatley had recently had charge of the old Berry House but had to relinquish it on account of his health He leaves a wife and four small children in very desti tute circumstances His brother wh has been nursing him is also very i atthis time COOL HEADS AND WISE ALL THAT IS NOW NECESSARY TO COMPLETE THE GREATEST FARMdThe farmers of Washington county Have made a great fight and have won a very decisive victory Only a few minor detailsYet re main to be looked after and the strongest most businesslike farm ers Organization ever known in this section of Kentucky will hav been completed At this late day it is hardly probable that failure will i ttend the efforts of those who are behind this great tobacco movement not alone in Washington county but throughout Ken tucky and indeed we are just now looking to the dawn of a glori ous daya new era for the armera more prosperous time for every man who earns his bread by honest toil All that is now nec t essary is to continue the work along the same conservative lines and success will certainly crown our efforts We must not depart inthe leasf from these methods we must hewto the line everything must be toriductec in a straightforward way We must not permit bur enthusiasm to dethrone reason we must hold it in check Indeed it is very necessary orallof us to keep our heads cool That is one ot the essentials to success It is the worse sort of folly to become irritated abusive whoItunnels the mountain is the felfow whq digs and scoops anpmoves withan easy swing The deliberately velheaded man is the man who accomplishes thins The hotheaded impulsive fellow seldom wins and after his rash acts are committed he usually has mac h time in which to repent It in all riphtj to be alert and watchful and determined Indeed it is very necessary to be up and doing it is necessary that your enthusiasm be not dampened for no man works well unless he 1 is enthusiastic but it is also very necessary that we not go beyonoVthebounds ofreason We must think twice before we spear we must do our Work in the open We want no passwords no s cret meeting places Let us be not afraid nor ashamed for all mask pd to see the hand w hold This organization is too great and important to be conducted in any other than a business way Business men uprighrrhoriofable and honest men must have charge of it Business methods must be employed at all times in conducting the affairs of the organization In no other way can it be successfully and permanently maintained We are golngto win outindeedwe have already won in the contest which has been wagedand the trophies are soon to be ours But lets BE CAUTIOUS Lets discourage all threat abouteLet us council conservatism end let us warn all who woujd make threats against anything or anybody that they are not friends of our organization TRULY SUCH PEOPLE ARE OUR WORST iENEMIES And we must rid ourselves of them They are too dangerous to remain in an organization off this nature It is our duty to report every individual we hear using inflammatory lap guage and his tobacco should be taken from the pool 1 We all know of the dastardly deeds perpetrated in Western Kerfr tuckyin the dark tobacco district Warehouses if you remember were burned and dynamited This was not Jhe work of the best 1posing bers of the organization but certainly the organization did not up- i hold their work it was denounced to no uncertain terms 1he president of the American Society of Equity offered a reward for the arrest and conviction of these parties The infamous deeds of these mobs worked untold hardships upon and discredited the oiganizatibn No greater setback or calamity could have befallen monthss years to outrageous deeds of these nightriders We do not apprehend trouble of this nature in Washington county We are absolutely ceItain that such thoughts are foreign to a great ma thatwsome folks are talking too much saying too many things that are uncalled for and very unnecessary Inflammatory speech will weak en our societies and willultimately ruin them Therefore let us be guarded in our utterances let us advise our friends to keep clear shutfcarry a great movement to finaland lasting success Weste ern Kentucky because of these outbreaks of the lawless There can be no more certain way o an organization like ojirs of good men than to inject into ita little of the criminal Therefore let us all be careful Ve must not even fling mud If your neighbor dlS1 agrees with you grant him without a word of censure the same privilege that you enjoy that freedom of speech In less than two years he will come around all rightrHe willcome to you like a man and ten you you were right and he was wrong The Sun is as much interested in this fight as anybody We are glad clean through and through over the victory that has been vonI aretg we are to turn a somersault and pItchup a hat Ve feel that we are one of the boos thereforewe believe we have the right to offer the above advice v Lets saw wood and say nothing 1CAUTIO l Make GOREItIII DEATHS In Long Run YacimtyThre Prominent Citizizens Pass Away Mrs Jourdena Lair

toe into a contract with the Amen can Society of Equity to pool your to bacco the contract to become binding on condition that said society would secure control of 50 per cent of the burley tobacco

cadence that made you lis ten happily and love it for the dear wIrft itself into your heart And twliorTy ed it seemed to care aI world for it was very tender interpretationUJW cite tempera wit jof the tune f i To listen to love and to wait for each new phase of so sweet an air was all worth your while and you would not lose one note And then the playing stopped the air you lead come to love and would not lose one note of just never was fin ished the song broke off and all your life you never heard any more of it enly the memory of that tender cadence in a minor key that was singing itself into your heart so that you wanted it all andwould not lose one note And you came to know after the long long t hurt that the rest of that melody would never be played That is probably the most poignant hurt of anything in the world the unfulfilled promise of asong half sung a flower broken with its bud unbloomed wondeiufYWhat might have been left just to spec latina life partly lived and broken ti off quite unfinished And you would have lost one day of it yqu would xhave loved it to the end for the way it i was living itself into your heart your interests and sympathies And after the long long hurt you will know that for all the rest of your days you must suffer the want of that personality in sufficiently realized whose beginning was so dear to you in its unusual tem perament and the way it had lived itself into your heart so that you Would a nqt lose one day of it You may go your way among people audit will be a long long way before you will find another personality of the fine quality the rare gift of sympa thetic response and equally synips thetic appeal that made lovablenesa so distinctly a dominant note the consis tent faith of principle and the consis tenttzeal that made a purpose so worth Awhile the sweetness and even the 1 t 1 iafjperIwere now binding and in full force and effect We heartily congratulate the grow ers of burley tobacco on the result of the gallant victory won and we predict- in the future we will secure the minimum price of tobacco as contemplated in the contract and thatyour organization will hereafter be prepared to protect the interests of all the growers of burley tobacco and secure for them a fair remunerative and stable price the product of their labor We de Ifor that every grower shalLhave the benefits that may be secured to them by the organization whether he has become a member of the organization before January 1st1907 or not To that end the Board has generously extended the time to January 12th 1907 at 12

It is I think that she was of a finer quality than most and in knowing her one felt that fineness im mediately and came to be interested in it The things she did meant so much to her and you knew all the time that she cared That is what came as near to making rit fine to tie with her as any thing else herr interest the intensity of her involvedness in the matter in hand Her quietness was never apathetic it was a repressed force that became in tense when applied Her enthusiasm had the same grace it ne onIthe superficial quality of the whole time you knew that the thing being done meant more to her than to staytrueAnd that sort of thing takes hldof one so that the thing done with her loses its flavor and si ificance and some very vital quality when she isrft there She count There is not one of us at the school house who is noi always conscious of the emptiness and the ache of a pres ence poignantly missed since she is not there any more That emptiness is as actual and that constant consciousness of an identity so Woven into itne most vital sympathies and habits of our togetnOW asa physical tangible thing could be Not yetrand not for along time and not forever I think will the spirit of Dorothy McElroy pease to inhabit our hearts and live in our sympathies in terests and dreams in everything we do at the school House Herr greatest fervor her most intense interest and

the manner of handling and making advances on the pooled tobacco is now in the hands of a select committee who will report to an adjourned meeting of this Board which will be held at Win chester Ky on

warm dry bed for the cow when the fall weather comes on Milk fever or parturient apoplexy attacks cows that are in very high condition with a surplus of blood In a majority of cases it can be warded

immediately after cow is delivered The Rural New Yorker is bold enough to state that there is no long er any doubt that injury has been done to apple trees and fruit by spraying with Bordeaux mixture This Injury it declares has been ob served since 1894 but has been grow ing steadily worse especially in damp sections The apples scalded by Bor deaux look as if attacked by some fungous disease It is different from the effect of frost or the scalding from Paris green or arsenic The trouble is so serious that the scientific men have begun elaborate experiments in search of a remedy At the Geneva station these expert ments were started on the theory that the trouble Is worst In damp weather and that too much cop er is used in making Bordeaux Results seem to demonstrate these conclusions as we see in the reports of fruit growers Growers have simply used too much of a good thing The formulas for Bordeaux mixture were worked out when spraying was largely done by hand The modern power sprayers and Improved nozzles are more effective and this very Improvement in the spray leaves too much copper ou the tree All that can be safely recommended at present is to spray in dry weather If possible and useless copper The New York station will use next year three pounds of copper and four pounds or more of lime In 50 gallons of water Dangers of a Cold and How 16 Avoid Them Mqre fatalities have

with time He was always a student of human nature and paid close attention to busl ness He was also a student of other things and a very wellread man Naturally he was a detective he had a peculiarly strong intuitive power and a keen sense of deduction I mean by this natural deduction He was not a Sherlock Holmes could not tell your wife was away because a button was oft your waistcoat or that 9 had lately moved your dressJng glass because your race was more smoothly shaven on one side than on toriheHe studied crime as a theologian stud ft led theology and the Holy Writ FIrst he would find the motive of a crim inal actthere was always a motive hen be would find the person that had this motive Cheney was esthetic in his taste a lover of art literature and music bachelorlfully furnished and became a rendez vous for a coterie of choice spirits While he saw a great deal of the seamy side of life that great underworld so close to our very doors and- y t always covered his nature never readytotoo for that matter are walking the streets today free and honored by their fellow beings because at a cru cia point in their career Col Jack Cheney had turned them up the hill when their footsteps were carrying them down His fame as a detective manyfIattedngtake charge of special work for large corporations but he was more con tent to work for the government un tit the time waa ripe for Jl1 nto enjoyedthepitality of many persons of promi countrytothat is all His many and varied ex periences had taught him that women were not to be trusted with great secrets A good woman was an angel to be respected nurtured and cared for a bad one the reverse Dan Cupid had a5 yet never made him captive but there was always present with Jack Cheney a mental pho tograph of a happy home presided andtiBut that was in the indefinite future not now Cheney never allowed his close contact with crime to contaminate him When he was on a case he was all detective a veritable sleuth every nerve strained to accomplish the de sired end but when the phase was over and the quarry run to earth Cheney forgot It He was sitting in his office one morning smoking his usual cigar and toswar in which he played no small part when a knock interrupted his reverie Come in he sharply said A young j man about 30 years old well dressed and of good appearance came in and stood before him He was visibly perturbed and shifted from one foot to the other while he Nervously twirled d his hat in his hands tS fAre you Col Cheney sir I am Well sir my name is Stanton Fred C Stanton Cheney recognized the name as one of a prominent fam ily living in St Louis Well Mr Stanton what can I do for you sir Sit down replied Cheney waving his hand towards a chair Have a smoke Thank you no Col Cheney You see Iam in great trouble and Judge Treat who is an intimate friend of mine told me you might help me out if you 1iouldHe gave me this card to youCbeney read the card and when he had finished Jald1 Any friend of Judge Treats Is a friend of mine and if I can be of serv ice I shall only be too glad to do so You are In trouble what Is Ur Yes Lam in trouble and serious trouble at thatJM1styear J Judge Andersons daughter and we have a beautiful home out op Laclede avenue We are very happy There never has been a cloud to mar our domestic happiness About two ago anonymous letters egan coming to Mrs Stanton Four 4 f far have been received and sImilar let- tersr have reached several friends of mine saying they will get to Mrs Stanton sooner or later These let ters all contain references to me hint at an unsavory past and a coming revelation which will destroy me so cially and otherwise in St Louis Mrs Stanton is not weUandinav- ery nervous state and the receipt of any such letters would I am afraid t cause serious consquences Mr Stanton paused for a moment to regain his composure and then prtfceedeQ L Fortunately the first letter came omy hands It was addressed to trij Stanton tdo not open my of glrmessmy tentlon The address was not r n 1 buthadures cut out of a newspaper and pasted on the outside of an envelope The letter inside was similarly made samekindfriends of mine They had been De ceived at their respective hou es- containedtheton Again there was a short pause and Stanton continued You see f cold eve all mall di verted from mv house to the office but that would cause Mrs Stanton to be suspicious so I have watched the mail ever since intercepting the post man when possible and have so far succeeded In keeping them from her but sooner or later one will get by me and then there will be the devil to pay Cheney was Interested the young man was so earnest in his manner and Judge Treat had sent him You say these letters began com ing about two months ago Yes sir and theyve come about ten days apart ever since Your friends always receive theirs at the same time uYessir You say they refer to your past Is there anything in that past you would not want known Anything which might considerederdisgraceful You will pardon my questions Air Stanton said Cheney noting the mans rising choler I do not mean to be personal or inquisitive but it is essential that I know all I want to help you now help me do iL Stanton had risen but again seated himself and replied Well colonel I am no better and no worse than most young men I was educated at Yale college my father gave me a liberal allowance and I sowed a fair crop of wild oats but there was nothln disgracefult there was no entanglements left college lcame here went in busi ness with father Last year as I said I was married Thats all YoU know otno one who would have an motive in flNoHave you any of the letters with you Only two the rest I destroyed replied Stanton handing over the letters Cheney placed them in a desk drawer and said Do you keep a butler Mr Stan ton uI did keep one but he left yester and I havent asyet secured an other one That Is Indeed fortunate Ill send you a young man today Hire him trust him implicitly and go about your business as if nothing had hap pened Your butler will look after the mall coming to your house and be assured no undesirable letter will reach Mrs Stanton The case r does not look easy but I think perhaps I can help you One thing Not a word of this to anyone and as soon as your friends give you any more letters bring them to me Good morning Mr Stanton As soon as Stanton had gone rxplainedWhere do I come Cheney asked Guthrie when he had finished Youre Stantons new butler YoU go out there and keep a watch on the incoming mail Keep Mrs Stanton from getting undesirable letters Any that are addressed as these are give to Stanton and let me know it as soon as possible Youre great on hunches remember the one you had in Smed berg Neb when we were on paymaster se Get some more o this mall business You sabe Sure thing Im on all right But this butler business does not appeal to me If I spill hot soup down Stan tons back or wine on his wifes dress lont you blame me and with a long he was gone taking with him a car if introduction to Stanton Cheney studied the two letters carefully He recognized the paper fro which the words were cutas the Globe Democrat from the print and they were both sent from a substation ou on Washington avenue There w nothing obscene in their contents bu they breathed vengeance and covertly intimated that the writer or mor properly paster was after with a sharp stick Handwriting o typewriting might have given a clew bur the paper pasted letter did Ordinary scratch paper had been use and the envelope wad plain white There was not even a water mark Puzzling mused CheneyCland damned ingeniously done butthe per son doing it must have had lots o time Tp cut a paper and paste six of these letters in one day was not a small Job Cheney determined to wait for developments and at the same time find out what he could about Stanton Guthrie was duly installed as but ler in the Stanton home and made alai y reports to Cheney Nothing un toward happened Mr and MrsvStan toVere apparently very happy Stanton was all devotion to his wife slid she to him She was nervous anJ it l l iC high strung to a degree and her to dition was such that any undue e cltement might kill her Cheneys iu vesUgatlon of Stanton was not prolltu of any information and Col Jack waLI About ten days later he received word from Guthrie Another pasted letter threatening in character had ar rived Simultaneously with this news came Stanton and in his hand he held seven letters one that had come to his Jiouse arid six that be had secured from his friends Stanton waS worked up to a high degree of excitement Heres a bunch of them Col Cheney My God Isnt there some way of stopping this avalanche of threats Leave them here said Cheney quietly and come here on your way home from your office this evening Then I may know something Cheney now bad nine letters all similar all threatening A threat is never made except for a reason blackmail or revenge Therewas nothing to warrant a elief In back mall because there was no request for money Who whQ could want re venge on Stanton and for what Stanton came back about four oclock Cheney had a long talk with him and during the conversation drew from him the fact that prior to his marriage to Mrs Stanton he had been engaged to a young lady living in Sedalia This ladys name was what asked Cheney Grace Ellerton Um yes And was she much in love with you Mr Stanton Well now Col Cheney that er isa leading question Yes I suppose she was But I wasnt with her and we quarreled and separated sureHowyoung lady you say About one year And what became of her Why she married an attorney of this city Abney byname and Mrs Stanton and I have met them occa sionally in society In tact Mrs Abney and I have laughed over our engagement more than once Where does Mrs Abney live Out on Washington boulevard But look here colonel good God you dont think Grace Abney would do such a thing Impossible man impossible exclaimed Stanton rising Mr Stanton slowly replied Cheney I never think out loud it hurts I am merely asking questions to find a clew Perhaps I have found ne You will receive one more let er so will your friends then they will stop and you can discharge you butlerAll right said Stanton but dont for Gods sake make a mistake Your impetuous chivalry is run ing away with your judgment will be no mistake made be assured of that Good evening Mr Stanton Stanton left with a cloud of uncer tainty In his mind However Judge Treat had told him to trust Cheney and he would But Grace Abney the culprit No never Cheneylightedmurmured Hell hath no fury like that ota woman scorned The next morning Cheney made a quiet investigation In the neighborhood of the Abney home He found that Mrs Abney about two months ago had purchased a couple of writ ing pads and some plain envelopes at a small stationery store just around the corner At the substation lie interviewed the man that sold stamps He was a civil war veteran Johnson by name and after Cheney presented his credentials was willing to answer any questions UDoyou know Mrs Abneyaske Cheney Yes I know her by sight replied Johnson Does she ever buy stamps here Yes thats the way I know her How long since she bought any About two weeks ago How many stamps does she buy at a time Generally about 50 half a sheet Now listen said Cheney sharply This afternoon Ill send you out a sheet of stamps Put them away in Abneynany m that sheet and send the rest to me 1mIpoJohnson Mrsdwas own mind hie knew it but he usema necessary went to the post office interviewed o thethtan nibewas Severdown with half a sheet of stamps an purchasedwas bing rather vigorously and the Indi swald infhis batch of those uHerelanother said throwla tb i Right on time to the minute said Cheney smiling But Mr Stanton let me assur you there wont be an more These will be the last You mean you know who Is send ing them and can stop it asked Stanton Yes thats just what I mean an tomorrow or next day you can dis Ije your butler I may need him iereuAll right said Stanton but Id like to ep him Hes a good one know that replied Cheney Gutnriei is good at anything he un dertakesj but I dont elieve he fan des this butlering business Come around tomorrow afternoon and I will tell you all t01moveswiftly to bring about the denouement Just off of Cheneys office was an alcove room before the door of which hung a curtain In this a cove was his secretarys office and his secre tary was a very bright worn in named May Wood Cheney called hrMiss Wood tomorrow riornlng I want you to be in your office con stantly I expect a lady visitor quite a society woman in fact and I want every word spoken while silo is here taken down Cheney again interviewed the postmaster and that gentleman promised to have Mrs Abney In his Cheneys office the next morning He knew her and would not have any trouble in Inducing her to come Cheney didnt want her husband to conicnot just yet if at all It depended on the woman The next morning about 11 oclock the postmaster and Mrs Abney ar rived She was a beautiful woman stylishly gowned and possessed a pair of blue black eyes The introduction was brief and the postmaster with drew Mrs Abney had herself under splendid control She knew nothing of what was In store for her Cheney too was good to look upon that morn ing he was well dressed and decorated with a red carnation Mrs Abn ay1ie began after his guest was comfortably seated in an easy chair J am connected with th government service and in of my work have formed an idea that something is wrong with the stamp department of the St Louis post office And what has that to do with me pray51 asked Mrs Abney in a rich contralto voice Her eyes were look tag straight at Col Cheney Wait please It is thought there are a number of spurious stamps being sold in St Louis The sub tion near your residence is suspecte of being implicated What Mr Johnson Impossible Col Cheney Impossible Mrs Abney nothing is impossible I have not said Mr Johnson was im placated I am merely investigating Of Course Mr Abney buys all his stamps downtown but you I presume purchase stamps for your correspondence at the sub station near where you live Cheney spoke in a well modulated voice His manner was that of a gen tleman hfs eyes were quiet there was not the least sign of an ulterior mo tive in this talk The hook Was bait ed and dangling near the fish and th fish nibbled Yes replied Mrs AbneyuI buy stamps frequently from Mr Johnson Just so And when did you lac buy any from him r Why let me seethree days ago if remember aright Her memory was good r that was the day Johnson reported the sale and returned the remaining half shee Not a muscle of Cheneys face moved the smile was still there Have you used all you bought on that day Mrs Cheney Why no I have some of them here now Here they are uhe said laying some 35 stamps on the table Col Cheney carelessly took them The fish had swallowed the bait remainedyMrs Abney began to wonder wha 8gttfeSman meant A uncomfortable feeling began over her Miss Wood was seated the curtained alcove taking down every word JI have told you all I know Col Cheney Now beg you to excuse me I have an appointment and must go The fish w s ru nlng out with the line it must be brought back Walt Just a moment please said thecolonel You know Mr Fred Stanton do you not Mrs Abneys heart began beating faster The color faded from her face itdwere you not Col Cheney your remarks are be coming personal and to say the tdo Tio to talk to me like that I shall tell Mr youfmwho had risen again said Wait and this time there was no mistaking the tone It was a command Excuse me Mrs Abney but I do annthing about it You were in love with Hddodto get even with him You couldnt attack him you couldnt find a weak spot in his armor but you knew his wife you knew her coed tion You would Strike him through damndable of weapons the

the staff ery store iearyourlhojuse tbe tam husbandwas at his office you dial your desplo ts CotCheneyon the table When Cheney first began to talk Mrs Abney stopped looked at him half over her shoulder and as his ac cusations were hurled forth at her she fully turned Her color left her and her eyes moved restlessly from side to side But sue was a quick- witted woman and when he had fin herduA likely story Col Cheney a very likely story indeed you have concocted ever detective wOrk She was sneeringuYou have found out I bought paper and envelopes that I bought stamps So might any number of pefpple have done the same But you detectives have to accuse someone so you accuse me You get me in your office alone under false pre tenses There are no witnesses to this interview and my word will go as far as yours You brute And you call yourself a gentlema- nI expected all this Mrs Cheney and I admire you for the light you are making You accuse me of having you in my office alone Three steps took Cheney to the alcove He threw back the curtain There sat demure little Miss Wood her bright eyes sparkling with the Intensity of the sceneYou see continued the colonel we are not alone Mrs Abney had not yet given up the fightthe fish was still unlanded but the hand net was ready But I tell you I did not send those letters You cant prove it she said Three days ago you bought 50 stamps from Johnson 35 of them are on the table You gave them to me The remainder of the sheet is in this drawer Here they are he said producing the halt sheet Johnson had sent hl nlEvery one of those stamps is marked with indelible ink I stampsand on the others I marked my name John V Cheney Here are seven of the letters you sent with those stamps on them Now look Mrs Abney gazed with wide staring eyes as Col Cheney lighted a small ale of lamp He took up one letter and held tt so the heat would warm thestamp Slowly but surely the name Grace Abney appeared com Thendout the entire seven letters the first two letters did not have marked stamps and then the unused stamps were treated to a slni r process the names coming out witJi startling dis tinctness For several minutes Mrs Abney stood irresolute her composure and selfpossession left her sobs shook her frame as she sank in a chair The wasdWhat are you going to do with me she sobbed Oh my God what an exposure What shall I do what shall I do eDo said Cola Cheney Now the harshness and tone of command had gone from his voice the keen alert CheneytUDo Why you are going home and be true to the good man whose name you bear From this day forth youre going to be his wife in word thought act and deed to rise and herthand and led hejr to the door Cowed beater andbroken the err ing woman suffered herself to be led Yeabut sh9 faltered

nothing more about this case You will also ex tract the same promise from your friends who received these letters Thats all Stanton the case is closed Remember me to Judge Treat when next you see him And dont forget to get a new butler Good evening They shook hands and Stanton went out the door At 530 Miss Wood had gone and Cheney was alone He opened the desk drawer t3ok therefrom the tell tale

DEMANDS MONEY KILLS 3 AND MAIMS 17 Valise Packed With Explosives Found Showed That Bomb Thrower Was Expert Philadelphia Pa Jan 5Three persons were killed and 17 Injured by a bomb thrown In the Fourth Street National bank The bomb thrower who has been Identified as Holla Steele was blown to pieces The Identification Is doubt ful as it was made by a bunch of keys he carried The attack followed the refusal of the president of the bank Richard H Rushton to give the man 5000 In many respects It was Identical to the demand made by the bomb thrower Norcross who attempted to end the life of Russell Sage and who was himself killed 15 years ago The greatest excitement followed the explosion The bank building was partly demolished and at first It was thought the list of dead would reach 10 or 12 The awful concussion was felt for blocks and it was believed that the building had been dynamited or that a boiler had exploded That the president of the bank waS not killed was due to the fact that when the man came In to him he be lieved he was a crank and temporized with him The stranger was assured that the cashier was the man to see Whether Steele made any demand of the cashier will never be known The cashier was killed Instantly and Crump who was nearest to him never recovered consciousness sufficiently to say whether any talk took place between McLear and the bomb thrower Philadelphia Jan 7After 25 hours of right search Director Public Safe ty McKelly and Capt of Detectives Donaghy announced that they had made positive the identification of the man who threw the bomb In the Fourth Street National bank He Is Rolla Steele whose family lives In Chicago His name was found upon portions of the clothing In his room at the New Grant hotel at Eighth and SprlngGar den streets where he registered on FrIday as R Steele of New York Inthe room was a store of weapons dynamite fuses electric fuses cart ridges and a general outfit which con vinced the police that the bomb throw er was not a weakminded crank but a determined man who came to this city with the definite Intention of robbing a bank Captain of Detectives Donaghy how ever thinks the chancesare that Steele intended to operate
