LOUiSJllj ch Mr Bryan has requested ftan party to give nim the answer are questions in which the wage erydayhave an intimate personal concern What is there in the Democ atic ess1W1l11Itlist articles that coma in competition with articles controlled by the trust Democratic success will not bring al panic to an4 exceptto those who have their hands in other peoples pockets and these ouht to be frightened Will it disturb business to material N reduce the tariff on the necessities of fe especially on those Articles that gsold abroad cheaper than at home If we qan compete in foreign markets do we need a high tariff to enable us to compete in the home markets Since Mr Taft has gone into the tiusiness of predicting panics if he is not elected it is only fair to ask what uaanty he can give if he is elected beIlpros per if he is elected but what guaranty have we that his opinion is well found ed1 i Suppose he is elected and financial distress follows It will be small relief tor the people to know that he really thought he could make times good We h da panic lat fall when Mr Roose yejlt was President although the people w4re promised iiiimumty from panics in cae of Republican success What rea sdn has Mr Taft to believe that his a4ipanic specific will be more of a success the present Presidents The bringing onof a panic at the present time is an impossibility for after all is said and done the panic Mr Roosevelt broughf on a year agd continues to give every evidence of to a ripe old age no matter which party succeeds in having its nom inees and platform accepted by the voters in November The panic is here to tay until the conditions which pro ducjed it are rectified Responsibility for ithe creation of those conditions cannot be charged against the Democratic party It rests solely andjri htfully with the Republican party which for Reunion at Tatham The reunion of the old Federal and Confederate soldiers at Tatham Springs last Saturday was well attended The gathering was more of a reunion where the old soldiers could mingle and swap stories and deal in reminiscences of the long ago than one with selected exercises There were no set speeches but short talks were made by Capt Andrew Offutt of Lebanon and oth- erhWHY Why did the Republican party in National Convention bya vote of nearly 9 to 1 refuselto adopt a plank favoring of UniIted States Senators by the vote of the people What excuse can Republican speakers offer for I thIs refusal to recognize the deSires of the farmers and laborers of the country Every farmer HI Washington county knows that the United States Senate destroys jail proposed legislatipn favorable to interests of the farming classes Only last winter the United States Senate un ceremoniously killed the bill to re move the unjust tax from tobacco after the Lower House by a unani- m us vote had declared in favor of removing the tax What do the farmers think of the Republican partys refusal to stand with them in their effort to throw off this miserable yoke The United States Senate is a partner of the trusts it is the mainstay of the tobacco trust If you vote the Republican ticket next November YOUR VOTE WILL BE CAST FOR THE TO BACCO TRUSTIt will be cast just as any trust magnate in the na would cast it were it possibletionI you to place your suffrage in hands If you are a Republican ASK ANY ONE OF THE REPUB LICAN LEADERS TO

PLE OI j C twelve years has ben in absolute conI trol of all the machinery of govern ment andwhich m spite of the richest crops in the history of any country and with every native factor for prosperity in its favor has so used its power as to bring acute distress to every busi ness financial and railroad corporation and to individuals of every classthee except who owes his salvation to divine mercy alone What the country most wants now is a relief from these conditions Poll tics in the end being largely a matter of faith on the part of the voter the character of the promises of relief and of the men who made them will deter mine the manner in which the voter will exercise his right to choose the character of administration under which he will live for the next four years The Republican party presents as its candidate a man chosen for it by the author of the present panic and pledged if elected to continue in force the policies by which the panic has been produced The platform on which he is nominated is his partys pledge to con tinue in effect the favoritism shown the privileged or trust classes by reason of which the cost of living for the wage earner and salaried man has been rais ed to the point where the whol Of his income in good times has to be de voted to the purchase of necessities with the attendant consequence that in bad times he is forced to go without The Democratic party has nominated a man who for twelve years has led the fight of the wage earner and the salaried man against special privileges It offers a platform which has as its purpose the relief of legitimate bUS- Iness from the competition of business grown powerful through successful dis honesty and purchased governmental favor It is opposed to all of the poll cies which have produced existing conditions Itis pledged to their elimina tion by removing their cause not by seeking to minimize or conceal their ef fects The is asking success aloneThe on RepubliranpartY et

committee recently appointed by the stockholders of the Washington County Tobacco Warehouse Company to recommend a plan for the disposition of the warehouse for the coming year is we are informed really to make its reportanda meeting has been called for Monday September 28 when the recommendations of the committee wilt be submitted Believing that theware house plant should be so utilized as to promote the interest of all tobacco growers lnd attbtame time subserve the general interest of the community the committee has in view a plan which they think will meet the approval of everyone interested and will be the means of securing a pqrmanent tobacco market at Springfield This is a matter of great importance to the people ot Washington county and it is the duty of every grower to attend the proposed meeting arid un derstand what is proposed to be done in the interest of the common welfare It is expected that good prices will be obtained for the present crop of tobacco and this is indicated by the fact that speculators are already in the field trying to buy or secure options on tobacco before it has been housed We believe that the rower is entitled to every cent that Us product will bring on the market and that it would be unwise to sell tobacco until an opportunity can be had to experience the benefits ot a well regulated home market The facilities for handling the crop in the plant of the Warehouse Company shuld always enable the farmers to receiat home- as high a price for their tobacco as can be secured at anv place in Kentucky Thepeopleof the county are to be congratulated on the favorable prospects fora solution of the tobacco troubles m Washington county and it is hoped that every conflicting interest will strive for the general welfare of the community Runaway While returning from Lebanon yes terday morning Mrs HarryShader had a very narrow escape from a serious accident Mrs Shader hadaccompanied her husband to Lebanon where he took ther

ADVERTISING1 written by Seymour Eaton of Philadelphia No Most department store advertising may be divided into three la sest badvery bad and damned bad J Bargain advertising is in the first class It does sell goods but if well done it could easily make three blades of grass grow where one grows now The worth20now1250 bargain offer has been done to death The people buy the 1250 article because 1250 is as much as they want to pay theyhavegood value for the price but for every one who buys IIthere are two others shooed off by the rollup tumbleup throwupyourmoney hurrah An honest bargain properly aannounced is always good advertising If I controlled a newspaper page I should use onethird of it down the side for legiti mate bargains I should put ti4e word Bargains or descriptionsof say nothing in figures about values or cost priies use that space for describing the goods I should make the descriptions as brief as possible leave everything to the imagination of the customer except Jthe selling price and now and then I should pmit that let the customer come to the store to find out Then I should make these bargains kok like charity by very contrast by using the remainder of the page to advertise my regularpriced alwaysinstock cloth ing and dress goods and carpets and furniture and all that sort of thing and I should make tins department so full of life and spirit and enthusiasm for the goods as to make my counters irresistible The store that preaches is in the second class Preaching isnt advertising It may be entertaining and instructive it may analyz to a nicety the ethical policy of the store it may impress the weakminded with the fact that this store is a great public benefactor a powerful influence for good in the community a sort merchandise university which ought to be endowed by the State But preaching doesnt sell goods it doesnt even draw a crowd j The formal refrigerator mybrassplateissuffi dent advertising is in theWrclclass It has all the

Philadelphia when the strangest thing in all my seafaring life happen ed We were on the hanks of New foundland the boworthe fogktngI and the mist had come down on us thicker than I lad ever seen it It lasted so long without lifting that the captain lost all traces of reckoning We were off Halifax Cape Race or CupeBretonweldidut know which Finally he concluded to drop an anchor and wait There was considerable swell roll Ing beneath us but of coiirse no wind That would have blown away the g- One night the watch heard the sound of a distant bell For an hour it tolled faintly then very slowly became more distinct It was evidently coming to ward us It must be drifting for there was no wind to fill sails nud we could hear no sound of steam Jtt last the bell tolled dismally within a cables length of us We began to be anxious and rang our own bell to let the stranger know that were in her course There was litIwe chance of her crew being able to turn herj for there Was no wind but they might anchor She was coming so slowly as not to hurt us much from fouling except for the waves If we should herolletltocther in the trough of the sea or one should be let down on the other there might be a terrible crash i Our signal excited no reply except the tolling of the bell which continued constantly Fearing those on the approaching vessel hail not heard us we fired a gun But this elicited nothing Presently we could hear the bell toll ing right beside us und now and then something black would appear not twenty feet from us hdjver there for a few minutes then disappear Once it came near enough for us distinguish the side of a ship We were onn terrible strain for while fearing that we would clasJi with the stranger then we caught a glimpse of her stern under our bow sprit She had evidently passed us After waiting some time longer with no vieof her we concluded we were out of danger At eight bells the next morning the fog lifted There was no sign of land but on our starboard quarter was a barkentlne without saiFs her foremast gone roIling Nvith the waves A wind sprang up aIhl raising sail we made toward her When we came the captain sent a boats crew tigate n1ar1er We fouud a derelict that had ly been floating along while The only thing aboard that had ever had life in it was the body of a woman and we had to stave in the door of the cop tains cabin to find that It was lying in a berth and notwithstanding the many tossings the vessel had received it bad not rolled but We looked 011 the log book for the last entry It was dated eighteen months agone 010 1834 We read the entry and went back further for an explanation No partof the log made mention of anything un usual transpiring aboard Nevertheless we traced what must have been some loeIlelterSIlJegan have made the voyage a wedding The last observation showed lati tude 23 degrees 35 minutes north lOng- itude 1820 east or about 300 miles south of the Canary islands and off the coast of Africa The ships boats were gone which led us to believe that ev cry one onboard except the woman had left the vessel and made for the land The period J 84tis when the slavers were miming the last cargoes of negroes from the African coat to the United States In the forecastle we found a scrap of paper on which waswritfenItT4e old man wont con sent dp the jobl We interpreted this tb mean that themen wished to force the captain to take the crew ashore to sefcure a cargo of slaves lIe declined and they were to kill him All this accounts for the captains wIfe being locked In hii cablii The port anchor was gone This Indicated that the ship was at anchor when the crew left hqr We found no evidence to show whether the captain was killed or went with thetn The cable had evi dently parted and was blonin offshore Probably whiie the men werq ashoro after negroes a stonri came jup and broke the cable Likely the captain was killed on the ship and during the melee his wife went to the cabin and locked herself in Possibly she may have Jain on the berth faint from fright and died there And so It was that this womans bier floated no one knew where Likely It drifted southwestward eventually turning northward possibly to the northern end of the Atlantic ocean then caught winds or currents which bore It south again to where we found It The rope to the bell rotted away and the waves tolled with It n requiem for this bride whose happiness was so short lived But It was destined o float no longer Such a derelict so near the line of Atlantic steamers between Europe and America was a menace to life Fortunately we had on board plenty ot combustibles to destroy her and after giving the body of the bride a sea burial we placed a large quantity of gunpowder In the hold fixed a slow match then getting Into our boats putted away the bell still tolling Its requiem Presently a flame shot up the waters trembled and the last of the slavers sank to the bottom- ALEXANDER ELY ff Dr W F Trusty

are so congenial that it might truly be said to be the home of the common gray goose but scarcity of water is one serious drawback to that industry just now For years we had been without geese but last spring our P9Y bought four two of which Iran off and embarked in the goose business The goose that stayed at home laid quite a nice nest of eggs up in a hog pen in the orchard which was set the pen being used as a nest After a months time we were out Inthe garden hoeing when we heard an unusual commotion On look ing over in the orchard we heard the mother goose chattering and twelve lit tie ones talking back and making their way toa nearby stream of water At the same tUne the old gander from a far corner heard the noise and was coming across the lot at breakneck speed squawking at the top of his voice These were the first goslings thajfc had been hatched on our farm for some twenty Years so Jf course we were delighted and went oven to see this interesting family When mother heard the neWs scenes and goslings of other years came before her mend and she just gathered her dough bucket and awaY she went to feed the little geese and the weight of seventyeight winters seemed to rest lightly upon her as she went through the orchard that morning And when little John came he boylike wanted to feed them wheat but this was seriously objected to This family was well attended to by all but by none as closelyas father and mother goose so they grew and flourished and eat day by day until peck af ter peck of grain was consumed and occupied an mere lot anda pond of water to the exclusion of everything else for three months Last week it was decided that they wereold enough to have their feathers plucked out and while driyingsome of them out of the yard we saw that rings had been cut around their necks and the tops of their heads had been shaven whlcntoJdusI plainly that mother them and marked them just as she had always done since 1851 The dry weather a short corn crop and large crop of hogs calls to mind a story as told me by Uncle Christi Co canougher fathers oldest brother who was born in 1824 As all the older ones know the summer of 1854 was a very dry one and is still spoken of as such Rain was needed just a little at wheat harVest which was a very heavy one and it rained no more until wheat sowing time Many fields ofcorn raised scarcely a bushel per acre bottom land of course was reasonably good We of this day with our fine blue grass lands corn and meadow fields that are fairly burdened with an abundant harvest and with our facilities for transporting grain andprovmd1rto various parts of the land have but little idea of the dark shadows that must have flitted across the paths of our fathers as they looked forward to the gloom of the com ing winter in the following winter corn was worth 5 per barrel while in the spring elm trees were cut down for cattle to browse upon Uncle this year had ninety stock hogs He had beeniinvestigating the knob country in regard to the mast when two men from Casey county came to his house So next day he and they started for that country He was directed to a manly the name of Pete Peyton who lived a mile above the mouth of Martins creek south of Rocky Ford church Peyton had just come in from ah extensive trip through the knobs and was laying with his head on the back of a chair with his feet toward the fire He was ot hg mountaineer type tall slen t WjI I w V der land agile and past middle life His cabin stood in a lonely but picturesque place in the mountains After some thought and consultation he agreed to AprIlforready full but there was yet a vacant place near an old deserted school house It must be remembered that the mast was very heavy in 1854 and the knobs were one vast wilderness while wild turkeys and deer were plentiful and smaller animals in abundance It was necessary to call up and feed the hogs a iittle each day until they became ac cu tomd to the neighborhood and made them beds So on the 16 of Janu ary 1855 Uncle Chris and Uncle George with my father took their stck hogs over there Uncle John stayed with them and the fare was so rough in that wilderness country that it was necessary for him to go out occasionally and bring in fresh supplies On the first of April they found all but a few of their hogs others were found in jJuly and three were not found until September Peyton was paid 20 In st ad of 10 for his trouble Uncle Chris killed ninety hogs that fall and h anImeat as was customary in those days he hauled most of it to Louisville There was a bountiful crop of corn in 1855 and corn was worth fl perIPastor Rev R L Purdom expects to begin a protractedmeeting at Beth lehem on next bunday night Key Williams of Springfield is expected to

Maybe it might be just as well if you did condescend to ex plain Here you promise to marry meIand ten minutes later I find you catchascatchcan hug with this ugly little shrimp and Phelan looking on as

old friend of his boyhood Anything Important judgeO her pe ted Or are you just taking pity oh a lonely chap and giving him a chance to chat with you over old times 7 Well began the judge his custom iSTe sUpped an arm about her waist as Jle spoke ary air of pompous nervous ness tinged by an almost con dIlatory mauner III would like to hive a littlebusiness talk with you if you dont mind dis cussing work at a ball Not at all Ive hud the honor of danc ing with three of your daugh ters this even hignnd the least Icando is to repay such pleasure by Did you really 1 beamed the judge on whom the unmarried state of his four fast aging girls rested heavily Im sure Mrs N wmalwll1 be pleased But this business matter meIjudje to I hope so I hope so conceded Newman j with growing anxiety In his tone You see 4I see you have some trouble coming tofthe point said Alwyn pitying the JtfdgVs evident discomfiture 1nd Im sorry t you feel so You were my father friend and I like to think of you as one of my own best friends There surely should be no hesitation In ask ing anything In mytpower to grant Thus emboldened Newman blurted oilt kIwethat Is seems to me you have been a little hard upon this Bor oilgh franchise bill if you dont mind my saying so Bennett Couldnt you let up on them now Why no Judge J cant replied Bennett still faillngjto connect New man with the WawiwrightHorrigan clique and attributing the judges interest in the matter to an amateurs lye of dabbling In politics I ciint let up on thf tfigh t he continued uAIl perpetual franchises are wrong and this particular franchise bill is rotten to the core In sheer justice to my oath of office I must fight it My boy said the judge ina fa therly manner that he had often found successful in argument was in politics long before you were born and Im speaking for your own good when I say 1 deeply regret the stand youye taken in ilils matter You objected to the bUl In Its original form Almost every change you demanded has been made in it As the gentlemen who asked me to speak tar you said He checked himself a minute too late The narrowlngof Bennetts eyes and the vanishing of the friendly light lit the young mans face warned New man he had made a fatal error iISo you cometo me as an emissary not as a friend said Bennett slowly and the gentlemen you come from- I41Ar the men who represen all that or break your careercapital organization 1ln other words Wainwright and Ho ian Yes All they ask is that you re mafn neutral thatyour That I look the other way while thy rob the city 1 am an old man Bennett evaded f the Judge trying anotuer tack1Iam1 Ive seen one rash step wreck many a bright career just as this will wreck yours Never antagonize wealth and the organization The public for whom iotlinforget I am not catering to the public I urn acting as my own conscience Butthis is stubbornness not con you have to do is to remain neutral If you do this I am authp ized to promise younow listen to promise you the nomination for gover lor when your teem as Thifs the bait Is it cried Alwyri angrily If I consent to betray my trust Ill get the governorship The bribe i golden and I dont wonder at HOrn an for offering It The only thing that surprises me is that he should have chosen such a man as you for hi lackey antI gobetween u L ckeyIBribe Gobetween echoel the judge in real indignation Ho dare you sir This Isnt ita bribe insisted Alwyn and weijent you the man chosen to offer it It will do you no good to blust r or grow indignant In your heart you know the words I used

me on such a vile er rand turds me sick Heaven help jus tice ind right When our judges can be controlled by a political boss and a roll of bills Thats all I dont care to further into the subject Bennett walked away leaving the little judge to stare him pink with wrath speechless with amazement In all his sixty years no man had thus laid bare to NeWman his own heart stripped of its garments of rpspecta bility and self deception Andjas usual in such cases now that the truth had been driven home to him Newman wrathfully denounced it even to him self as a lie Still flushed and incoherent ha

Outrageously Jj Impossible exc1aimcdr Dallas There milstjbe a some here Mr Bennett is too well bred to insult any man nuch less a man so much older than L A gentleman is he I should not have believed It He has Insulted me most Im not surprised observed Wainwright lam arinounced Dallas Naturally sneered Wainwrlght If you can remain on speaking terms with him after his abominable treatment of me you can easily overlook any other brutality of ibis Tell us about it judge Interposed Gibbs seeking to avert any further clash between uncle and niece uiwent to him began Newman bearing a request from from4 The judge paused It was noti whol ly easy to present matters to this boast eyed young girl in such a Lay as io bring her in his way of thi iking But Walnwright felt no difficulty His shrewd brain caught at a means of turning the affair to account You see Dallasthe financier broke In with a warning glance to Newman I begged the judge to intercede for me with Bennett to ask him t4 bury the hatchet and let us be friends again for the sake of old times I thoughi Judge Newmans age and his high of flee would compel a certain respect even with a man of Bennetts qharac jter But I was wrong and J am sorry judge for the unjust humiliation I caused you UI dont understand said Dallas looking in bewilderment from one to the other Judge my uncle sent you to make overtures of peace And Mr Bennett refused to UHe not only refused but called Mr Walnwright a highwayman and But why demanded Dallas IIHe pretended to misunderstand what I said about the conditions UOh it was a conditional offer then I thought Certainly there were conditions cut iIi WaInwright again coming to the emissarys rescue asked that he take a position of neutrality In re gard to this Borough bill Simply neu tral mind you Not to change his atti tude in Its favor or That was a splendidly fair offer cried Gibbs enthusiastically uSo it seemed to me agreed New nanIbut Bennett would not listen when I tried to point out his proper line of d tYne called me a gobe tween rind Even after you told him we were granting practically all the concessions he had asked In the bill 1queried Gibbs Yes said Newman He must have some motive behind it all cant- Nonseuseexclairned Dallas What ulterior motive could be have UThatis more than know positive mysteriouslyjpointing at Dallas There are the rea sons 0 I exclaimed Dallas incredulous Explain please Willingly replied her youll give mea fair hearing BenJett How dare you sir1 is in love with you He knows Gibbs also wishes to marry you He knows too that Gibbs for tune depends on the success of the BoroUgh franchise If tho bill Is beaten Gibbs will be practically ruin ed and thus in no position to marry Weve known all along of this reason of Bennetts for flghthg our bill foriyou might think he dont believe one word of It cried Dallas her big eyes ablaze Alwyn Bennett could not stoop to such a thingNo said Walnwright Then you probably will refuse to believe what tun about to tell you now consIder Borough stock a safe Inv stmnt- nd I put all your money and Perrys In it Bennett knows this anti in spite of the knowledge he is trying to kill the franchise even on the certainty of bggaring you and Perry along with Gibbs If only he can ruin Gibbs he cares nothing about making you and Perry paupers too That is the sort yourIhas secretly through BoroughIstockus will make him a very rich man uIt ijnt true alii fined Dallas in dogged certainty Mr Gibbs do you confirm this story of my uncles Please leave me out of this Miss Wainwright answered Gibbs gentlyt UI prefer to say nothing to prejudice you When I figLitI fight fair Even at the cost of all your money Islcarl your sense to an wilI enter the foyer and going up to Dallas ling a little late for our

Dallas He told you so at your that lay we were there Well Yes but dont lets discuss business tonight replied Bennett This Is our dance and Wait please You knew his fortune was largely tied up in Borough stock Charles Wainwright but here Is something you didnt know My uncle says my money mid Perrys is all Invested In that stock and that it you defeat the bill we will be depend ert on Mr Wainwrights charity If that is true you didnt know it did her voice was almost tremulous in ItAeager confident appeal but Bennett forced himself to answer Yes It is true and I knewiit The eager glow died from her eyes leaving a look of dawning horror And knowing this knowing Perry and I shall be made paupers by your action you still insist on On opposing the bill Yes 1 am sorrybutlt is my duty Duty sneered Wainwright Your duty was done when you vetoed the bill That pet made your position clear and showed the public how you regarded tIle measure so why go on lighting It after III wont discuss this with you Mr Wainwright interrupted Bennett We already understand one another you and I My uncle says pursued Dallas that you made your broker secretly sell Borough stock short knowing the

speaking in a level firm emotionless voice am prepared to give It tb you now publicly You have often asked me if I would be your wife My reply is 1 stt Dallas gasped Bennett In horrified rurprise i 3f CHAPTER XII A WYN BENNETT silt in his own study at fiome in the big Bennett house that remained as L almost the last landmark of that solid middle nineteenth century wealth and fashion which hal once dominated a neighborhood now given over to office buildings and apartment houses The hour was late An hour and more hud passed since the young may or and his mother bad returned from the administration ball The house was silent and even the usually busy streets outside were wrapped in the hush that never falls until after mid night and is dispersed by the gray of dawn Late as it was Alwyn hud made rio move to discard his evening clothes Alone he sat his head resting between his crossed arms on the desk before him Motionless inert hopeless he had ro marned there ever since his arrival from the ball But If his body was moveless his brain was awhirl Try as he would he could see no light in the tangle of events into which his hImIsea Through all of his months of battling he had ever struggled forward through Increasing difficulties toward one bright l goalDalhs love And now that love wa shatclled from his grrsp through no fault of his own and bestowed on a man unworthy to kiss the hem of her garment At each step In the long climb Alwyn had asked himself Would she ap proyeT And now through trying to be worthy that approval he had for ever lost it for Dallas he knew had not only rejected him and engaged her self to Gibbs but had done so with the belief that Bennett was a heartless un scrupulous intriguer undeserving of a good womans regard Arap at the door aroused Bennett from hls4 bitter thoughts He lifted his head wearily and gave word to enter A drowsy servant came in with a card UHe says its important business sir said the footman And he wishes to see youat ouce if possible Show him up answered Bennett dropping hi voice so as not to disturb his mother who slept on the same floor I w JTsee him here A minute later Horrlgaus bulky form blocked the threshold Queer time of night for a call he observed casually as ho o torod vited closed the door be aid took a chair but my business wouldnt wait Then state it as briefly as you can directed Bennett making no move to rise or welcome his unbidden guest It is very late and Jam tired Ive come to see you about our Bor ough bill So I supposed You wont call off your fight against us That question is hardly worth an No not Well Mr Alwyn jltbougbt got you rYe got you a d me Perfectly Is that all No it aint all mimicked the boss And Im in earnest Ive got you where I want you That doesnt interest me If youve nothing else to say But I have chuckled Horrigan When it came to a showdown between us two I put a staff of men to looking up your record You found nothing you could use Is that No it isnt even the beginning Then I remembered about your father About my father It grated on Bennett that his dead fathers honored name should bespoken by this low politician but before he could protest more forcibly Horri gan went on t What dyou think if I said your father was a grafterone of the worst of his time Pdsay you lied answered Bennett calmlyHand Id drive the foul lie down your throat with my fist Youll have to think of some better scheme than that Do you think Id be idiot enough to come here with the story If I didnt have full proof ofit asked Horrigan in contempt And despite himself Alwyn saw the man was speaking what he believed to be the truth He paused in his Impul sive forward move reseated himself and asked coldly What so called proofs have you been fooled by your heelers into think ing Dont believe me hey Well rOll will fast enough before Im done less youre afraid of what Ive got to Say J f Tm not afraid of anything you can say The highest tribute to toy fa thers memory is the fagt that a cur like you cannot defile It Go on Ill listen to you iiVery good said Horrigan quite unmoved Ill make it as short as I can I remembered your father got rich pretty quick He was a member of the organization and his firm got the jobs of building the aqueduct and myIclewCherrington You know the firm perhaps If you dont you can look them up They dont belong to the organIza-
