j ii rIVOLUME LSPRINGFIELD KY WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 3 1909f NUMIER9 lIt LAR6EST Crop of Tobacco In Yrs Will Be i Raised Says Presidentof the I LouisvilkWarehouse fJ Company lia WI believe Kentpy will raise the JMlargest it has produced t BariJIrdco Warehouse company at the Seed bch last s ys the Courier Jour nal w4asked on whathe bases his I prediction Mr Barnardreplied J base Iton past history and human nature There are two or three good reasons rone is that all the Burley to bacco has been sold and is now but of the hands of the raisers In the sale of it the raiser received a better price than for manv years and the fact has v sent tobacco stock up The prices will 1tl11 be good and the farmer naturally wants jto raise a good moneymaking crop Another reason is that the cur taIingofftbCrop to a great extent the past two or jthree seasons has allowed the supply to run flown The market both in Burley and dark tobacco is shorter bf supply than it has been in years ahd it will take several years to glut it again Another reason is the tacttha1 a great many farmers who pooled tobacco arid curtailed their crops will plant and raise independently ll am pnvihced that the acreage in State willbe large eI Mr Barnard believes also that other Stares where comparatively lit tIe tobacco has heretfore rjfeen grown will take tip the culture of tobacco Tobacco is a weed said Mr Barn rde and wherever a weed will thrive tobacco will grow Of course we can 3raise abettergrade of it here in Ken tucky hut that fact does not altogether depend upon any especial adaptability of KeutuC111H il4t depends toa great extent upon th t fact that ourfarmers liav r learned by experience the better iriJnPcls of growing and handling it Some of the best tobacco we candled fiere7 from last seasons crop was raised inaar Selma 4iawhere tobacco is not s staple crop The people in that and other states are beginning to experi mentwith It Missouri is going to raise tobacco since the tobacco war in Ken tucky has attracted thorattentiOn to it r1j Another thing will result from the tobacco waryou will soon see some of the foreign countries where our ex OrttQbacco has been going raising thown tobacco Fifty million pound of tobacco was raised in South Africa last season Austria alsp raised a larger f crop than usual and will soon be raising Iargq per cent of all that country consumesThe American manufacturer of to bkcco does not Want to see the weed tgrowri promiscuously over a wide area The reason of this may appear a little obscure but there is a in w lch they display businkacumen ink which is not understood by the American people generally As an il iustratipn the State of Missouri raised a lot of tobacco 20 years ago When they attempted to market their product they failed to find a ready sale for it The manufacturer told them he could not use their product and they graduaj ly cut out the crop for that reason At that time the manuf acturers best in terests were conserved in confining the raising of tobacco to one or two States The purpose in this is plain The man ufacturer knows that when people raise tobacco regularly they do not consume the manufactured goods but become accustomed to the use of their own product Therefore when Missouri xaised Jots of tobacco it was notsoiootfl a market as at now is 81 jgpuri people are compelled to

America The dear sovereign people are dancing to his music like wiggling Urn 3erjims and the soul ess fiddlers are collecting coins from tlie innocent revelers for a music as discordant as the snapping and howling flames of an inferno True some of the smaller ones of the graft ing profession are being s iverely dealt wfthrsome of the lesse lights ate being extinguished by the fanning doors of the pemtentiar es but the great luminaries of the p ofession are continuing to do business at the Ratite old stand Once or twice every twenty four hours President Roosevelt rises to remark against these American af- flictIons and the convicted Mayor of San Francisco is no doubt often die turbed in his prison cell by the clatter ing of Roosevelt teeth Indeed one of the innocent pastimes of our President is the firingSof voluminous volleys of denunciatory thunder into the camps of graters He has spent much time at this sort ofpractIce and can now shoot a filming arrow across the continent and strike the heart ot a San Francisco thief squarely in the center He has been so busy trying to locate grafters in citiesotner than Washington that he has neglected these matters in the Na tions pitolthat veritable hotbed andrendezvous of all the generals of the graf ting professipn The negrp who shaves the President draws a salary of 1600 Delpartments yet he never does any work in this department In plainer words the Presidents barber is the beneficiaryI of a graft It is thin of the American people paying a negro 1600 a year to shave their Pres i1entHe ought to either let his beard grow or Pay orhis own shaves whichJ he could very nicely dp since his salary has been increased from 50000 to 100000 perlyear ON THE WARPATH warIPathcardwriting In a lengthy statement in The Times of Saturday he denounces his critics in Rooseveltian language and hands out some hot ones to a 4 State official who slanders Mr James by saying he is a candidate for the Republican nomination for Govern or The Auditor says this to the boy whose bonnets have buzzing bees in em- I am not candidate for Governor nor any other State office because Gov Willson and in fact all our public speak ers denounced from every stump rotation in office as practiced by our Democratic opponents thereby practically committing the Republican party to the opposite and asI believein keeping faith emphaIsispresent officials ought to be candidates tor other positions before the next Re publican convention and thiaspecifically the State official Vho had himself interviewed Rah for Auditor James And tell him to shoot as often as he feels that away Of course Doc Bruner and oth rtwill hold up their hands in hor ror The very thought of not being a candidate fo some sort of a State office in 19 is ridiculous OLD

in the air for eighteen months during which time every known means was tried to extin guish the flames with no avaij During a miniature flood Green Rivera on which the property is located swelled and burst out of its banks overflowing the well for many days This eventually extinguished the flames and the well was plugged During the long burning period the hissing of te gas and heat leaving the aperture could be heard for miles and it was impossible to get within fitty yards of the well so intense was the heat andO strong the smell of gas On another occasion the well was set on fire by a party of hunters and three months continuous efforts was neces sary to extinguish the flames This great flow of gas attracted local capital and a company was organized for the boring for oil The g3s well was utilized for generating power to operate the drills when boring tor oil J3ut after boring less than five hundred j feet dowin with little signs of oil at which time the capital subscribed had become exhausted the company either by common consent agreed or by some minor disagreement their operations were discontinued and though the gas well supplied all the necessary power at practically no cost whatever the work was never resumed There is now some talk or rganizing- acompahY to open up the well and pipe the gas to Campbellsville and surround ing towns for furnishing gas for illumi

pinned the paper around his neck and began to read the towel When the barber remonstrated with him he awoke with a snort and said Well don e please And another time I recall he bought two quarts of strawberries and went to lodge meeting After lodge he went home with the berries under his arm It was late when he reached his home and not wishing to disturb his wife he sat down on the front I ii J steps took 0tt his shoes and letting hlme1f in with the latch key put his shoes in tlfe refrigerator and set the strawberries under the bed And then there was that occasion during the spring of the

wore false teeth He was an artist and a dreamer and he used to dp the most outlandish things One night he took his wife to the theater went out between acts and forgot to go back He never once thought of her until two hours later when she came paddling home in the rain and well of course he remembered then And one night this same fellow had been out with the boys until quite late He was an incessaht smoker and he still had the stub ofra cigar in his mouth when he reached home He hung onto it like the proverbial pup to a dahlia root and got ready for bed Finally he took a tumbler from the shelf nil d1t with water and set it on the window sill Removing his cigar from between his lips he put it in the water Thenext thing he did was to open the window and throw His false teeth far out into the night Feeling the need of a night cap he trudged into the pantry and began hunting for his Jug in the darkness His wife had some kerosene in a receptacle much the same as that con herjugthrew his head well back and let about five or six big swallows gurgle down his throat Then he began to get hot Inside anti realized thai he had hit the wrong jug Letting out a whoop that would have awakened his grandfather had he been burled In the same block he lashed into the Uv grooni and turned on the light Groaning that he was going to die he fell upon the sofa and began to run his fingers down his throat His wfe earn e rush lag from her room and taking one look at the jug began to laugh When he found out what he haft imbibed his fear subsided He hal taken kerosene for the croup many a

round right over my head I remembered that Miss Williams read us a fairy story a few days ago It said that when a little girl was lost she could find her way home if she Would follow a bee or a bird The mocking bird kept flying around and it came so close to me that it almost touched me It seemed The Bird Flew Round and Round Her Head to me that it said Come with me come with me When It flew right in front of me I could see that it was a bird that I saw every dayin our yard It always sits in a tree there and sings when I go to school and when I come home It seems like it tells me goodby and waits for me to come back It flew back along the road and I turned around and followed It At first it flew very fast and I had to run to keep up with it When l was so tired I couldnt run any more I saw the bird look back at me Then it flew so slowly that I could walk and keep up with it 41 followed it until I came to Curve seven on the street car line Thats right on Central avenue and when I got there I knew where I was The bird seemed to see that I knew the way It flew around over my head and went back This morn lug It was on the tree in our yard and It sang when It saw me The little girl seemed filled with awe as she told her story un Is true said her mother that she did not return home Until 530 yesterday evening I was greatly worried about her There has been a mocking bird

the foun dation on which it is built This could be applied to nothing better than the growing of a crop of tobacco The laying of the foundation of one crop should begin with the preceding crop that is in the selecting the s ed This should be given special attention and should by all means be recleaned by blowing out the trash and light seed before sowingIn preparation of the plantbed some prefer to burn in the fall when the ground is dry so that it will not require as much material and this maybe best f6r those who still burn with open fires by piling brush and covering this thickly with wood But this method is being rapidly discarded and farmers are already beginning to seethe end of their wood supply and are using more modem methods for burning which does away entirely with this waste of wood and a great deal of the labor They also find that they can burn beds when the ground is wet or a little frozen which enables them to do other work when the ground is dry and that the bed is burned more even producing plants regular in growth which will transplant more to the square yard How hard to burn is a question often asked The dirt should be burned Kara enough to thoroughly destroy all weed seeds at least two inches deep It takes pretty hard burning to do this- but very little material will do it un less one has to burn with open fires which takes lots of wood and a great deal of time and labor to prepare it and pile it on the bed However at any cost it should be burned thoroughly for weeds on the plant bed are almost as troublesome a pest as any we have to the crop Even if the bed has to be weeded only one this will retard the growth enough to make the plants a week or ten days later and often de lays the transplanting untIl it is impossible to get a goods nd thereby causing a heavy loss in weight per acre be sides the crop being later will not be as good quality as if earlier nor worth near so much Therefore a late and inferior crop of tobacco can nearly always be traced to neglect in the preparation of the plantbed So see to it that this part of the work is well done ty Tobacco PlantBed Furnace to do it with a VALLEY HILL Mrs Walter Seay of Nelson county

he left He Ranted to know if the office was open this evening 1 told him yes it wai till four ocJock tomorrow morn lAg Considering we were a morning paper we generally had to keep open r nights It was 355 a m andthe telegraph editor was cursing the newspaper business for the one hundred and I leverith time during the night All of itwas bad enough he assured himself but it was ghastly human sacrifice to compel a man to spend a large frac tion off his life waiting two hours every riiornlng after goodnight had come over the telegraph wire to pre venti a scoop on an impossible piece of telephone news He rattled the waste copy and news papers before him off on the floor in an indiscriminate and wholesale atd tempt to clear up for the next day The ye lpw glow from his electric limp hemmed In by its green paper shade shone down across his face and inae njs desk a little island of golden light In the big black news room The monotonous ticking of the old office ock filled the empty place with its exaggerated noise Outside he heard the grqups of compositors as they were discharged go laughing and clat tering down the stairway until their noise died away in the lower stories r and disappeared into the street After a little silence there was an ther step that he couldnt a count for a peculiar shambling step evidently directed upstairs Probably he thought it Was the Janitor or one of the compositors who bad forgotten a something and was coming back only It didnt seem like the janitors walk and the compositors seldom took that kip i of gait when they were hurrying back The strange step passed directly by the composingroom and into the edi torial hail and the big glass door slammed after it It wavered and topped at the local roonrand then after a moment continued down the corfidori hesitatIng from time to time as its owner shook violently at the doors of the editorial writers rooms And then at last it passed on by degrees until it stopped definitely at the threshold of the news room Wheres the editor asked a voice from outer darkness rm one of the editors said the tele graph man looking up You aint the one I saw said the yoice suspiciously Tall fat fellow I with a big mustaphe what 40you call him Oh hfes the city editor said the telegraph man Yes thats 1U whereshe I 4Gonel Goner1 The stranger had come Tip into the penumbra around the electric light He was a tall thin man in a slouch hat and ia pale brown overcoat none hand he carried a slip of paper and in tie other something metallic apparently that IQoked like a bunch of gas pipe He was a peculiar looking man His face was long and white and his jhands were painfully bony and his ielyes certainly did look queer He hid tjie air of a person who want eQsomethingverrbadlY and had made up bis mind to It very soon The telegraph man sized him up for a crank Yes saId that functionary hes been gone for two or throe hours He i began to get up and reached out for the lamp hoping to shut off debate simultaneously with the light Hold on said the stranger with the air of one having authority The telegraph editor was a little man whose best stock in tradein a heated argument was always discretion and the stranger loomed up indefinitely above him After a seconds hesita tion the editor decided to reason with him What do you want to have done he said Ive got a correction here youve got to make said the stranger Oh I cant do that sort of thing said the telegraph man cheerfully youll have to see the city editor Come around this afternoon about two oclock He reached up his hand again to the electric light You sit down said the stranger with a tone of frank determination At the same time he brought his right hand up into the light with the bunch of gas pipe It was a revolver with a bore like a small tunnel He pressed the muzzle up against one eyebrow of the telegraph man who stared wildly down along the barrel and saw the conical bullets peeping out of their holes in the cylinder like the heads of nasty little animals peering out of their burrows He sat down hurriedly The old office clock ticked loud and apprehensively Outside in the hall the foreman of the composingroom and his assistant closed the rear of the procession of compositors and left the telegraph man alone on the floor with his visitor The silence was very impressive- I aint comin up here again the stranger said finally Ive come often enough already Ive been thinking this thing over all night long and now Im goin to have it in the paper to- mOrrow and its goin to be in to suit ine this time Ive written it out myself Here you read that thats what I want He let down his revolver with his right hand arid brought up the piece of paper In his left It was a dirty sheet torn out of a bank book app rentIy covered with coarse writing Ina lead pencil arid blurred and dirty with erasures The telegraph man lapped off his lips a couple of times and began to scan paper obediently This is what what he read The hellbrats of the law say that Mr Abel Hofferihielmer is a thief They lie He afnt a thief and they know it But still toy hold him arid they throw hll111hto loaThsome cells and persecute hIm always with their deadly bate They have their reasons for doing what thy do There 1sa con spiracy against hima bloodred stonyhearted hll red conspiracy We know what tit iand who made it and they would hound him to his death if they only could But let them beware We know what but we aint saying Only this much Their time will come As for us not wanting to do no man no lnjury We go down on our knees and we lap the dust before him and eat all the words we have wrote about him bats it said the stranger appreT datively when the telegraph man had quavered through this text Now what do you call your head man the boss of the place I meanIManaging editor responded his victim meekly Whats his name queried the stranger Mr Penfield Well you write at the end of that signed and then you put down his name So the telegraph man wrote down at the bottom Erastus J Pen field managing editort Now thats the way youre goin to put it In said the stranger But I cant put it in tomorrow all the compositors have gone home said the telegraph man plaintively This statement had an unpleasant effect on the stranger it excited him Youre an editor aint you he asked Yes that Isyes I suppose I am Well an editor can get an item Into the paper cant he continued the stranger with convincing logic Yessald the telegraph man but he cant print them the compositors do that you know The stranger didnt know about that all he knew was that the correction was going In and if there wasnt anybody else to do it the telegraph man would have to do it himself But 1 antprint Id like to first rate said the telegraph man pathetically but I cant I never printed any thing in my life But the stranger was obdurate he said the editor would have to learn because that dorrection was going in1 This paper didnt treat me right no it didnt he went on it said I stoleLThe memory of his wrongs made him rather maudlin for a mjrirlte The telegraph man didnt like to see him maudlin because it made him wave his gun about in such a careless irres- ponsIble way But the stranger w not long In mastering his emotions You see that he said shoving the tunnel of the revolver into the tele graph mans face again The telegraph man confessed that he saw it IfI let that off into otouI darned little runt the stranger con UntIed there wouldnt be anything left of you but a rim Now its either oe thins or the other either I get Inlitherecorrected if I have to wipe out every anIolberyou as anybody Now are you goin to give me that correction or aint youIll try murmured the telegraph man So they formed in slngle ttleTaDd 1 marched out tarough the crooked hall into the composingroom withou further remarks The telegraph man who went ahead felt the cold wind blowing out of that revolver on the back of his neck eveiy step and he wasnt in the mood for frivolous con versation The only remark made by the stranger was to the effect that he was damned if he didnt believe hed shoot him anyway which the tele graph man was prayerfully pleased to consider a selfish and unprofitable jest The procession passed into the stale tobacco smoke of the jetblack and desert composingroom and halted while the telegraph man turned on the electric light It then passed on again to the speakingtube to the pressroom where the telegraph man carefully explained that he was free from guile in calling up the people downstairs because the press always had to be stopped when a correction was made The stranger said nothing but poked the end of the tunnel into the cerebellum of the telegraph man With great eloquence Then the tele graph man rang the electric bell Hello he said to the head stereo typer youll have to have them stop the press and put on another page It was 415 oclock The language of the head stereotyper was unparlia mentary in the extreme What was the use he ajrgued at this time of morning Its a correction Ive just got to make it said the telegraph editor feeling the rinjj of the revolver barrel crowded into he back of his head Really Ive got to Its very impor tant IThe head stereotyper appreciated the necessity of a very important cot rection though his tone of voice didnt indicate it Well get a gait on you he Said among other things itll only be in the city anyway Downstairs the rattling of the big press diminished and stopped The procession in the composing room formed again and marched to the switch that turned on the current to the dynamo and the gearing of the typesetting machines started up The performance occupied some eras for the telegraph man but at last it was doneThen the procession formed again and went over and took a proof on the proof machine It wasu t a very artistic piece of printing that appeared but as the telegraph than reminded his chief pro tern it was his first at jtempt and you couldnt expect too much His chief finally passed it But he Was particular about its position everybodysgowheres the place your boss puts what tie writes The telegraph man murmured it wzls the editorial page and the stranger said that was what he wanted So the editorial form Was hauled out and the correction went in at the head of the first column in double leads The telegraph man jabbed out a small editorial on the foreign ques tion to make a place for it hammered down the page as level as he could screwed it up and sent it down the elevator When they heard the press starting up again the telegraph man explained that the correction was made But the stranger intimated that he did his business in a more thorough mannerWhen do I see the paper he askedWhy if you Want to yOu dnsee it right now Just let me go down after It Id be very glad to get it for yout said the telegraph man starting for the stairway Immediately in his anxious effort to oblige Oh no you dont said the stranger The telegraph man didnt Aint there ant other way to get that paper up here asked the former it a meaning flourish of his re volver ilyesthere Is TheySan nrjpurnatlo uh t1 the news room I guess admitted the editor 4 ms idea being satisfactory an ad journment was mado to the news rpm and the paper was called for down the speakingtube It came upimmedlate ly fresh and warm from the press Supposing said the telegraph man to himself With horror that correc tion doesnt satisfy him now But fortunately the contributor was very much satisfied with his appear ance In print He read it over himself first aiid then Invited the telegraph man to read it aloud In order that he might get the general effect The telegraph mans elocution wasnt very artistic in fact he found some diffi culty in reading at all but apparently It delighted the stranger for he en cored continually Indeed the tele graph nian had floundered through this bit of unique journalisma dozen times and could hardly wag his tonrgue when his guest was finally satiated Well I guess thatll do he said at last Then having instructed the tele graph man that he neednt venture out of the news room before seven a m unless he were anxious to be filled full t f holes he left with a final dramatic flourish of the revolver The last the telegraph man saw or him he was striding majestically out of the news room door waving his PI- per in one hand and his gun in the other with the proud air of a man whose mission in life was accom pUshed What the telegraph man said whep he was found by the janitor late

distressingly as the hammock was viciously swung to and fro Kathleen was distinctly in a bad humor Here she was at the house party with every one looking askance at her because Archie Ha good had suddenly left early that morning It was after one now and soon her hostess and the other guests would be coming in to lunch Already a tinge of disapprobation could be felt in the atmosphere and she too rp sented his leaving it was Inc nsid erate he might have known that she would be the odd girl lost in this desert of selfish couples either engaged or about to be So she wits moping on the broad south pbrch when the two small sons of her hostess passed Intent on a fishing expedition With a sudden determination she sprang up Oh Norris let me go with you t Fishin ncWhy yes But we are going three piles aint we Fred The other solemnly nodded frBut I just love to walk persisted Kathleen r And you havent had lunch and were ina hurry Who cares for lunch I dont We will get up a good appetite for din j neroSo just walt a minute and I will be with you The boys having submitted to the inevitable they started out together Arriving at the creek Kathleen ensconced herself at the foot of an old oak and gave herself up to the enjoy ment of the long spring afternoon After a while she grew lonely and wished for real companionship In all the 22 years of her life her heart she was sure had remained untouched Would she ever love Several men had sworn allegiance to her There was Archl who had made no secret of his adoration and for two years had been her shadow Until last night he would not takeIno for an answer but now at last she felt well rid of him She washer reverie was interrupted by the boys Oh Miss Kathleen the fish wont bite so were going to East lake That wont be too far for you will it No but I think will return home now and let you two gono no you need nPtcome with nie I remember the wdy i perfectly so goodby and good luck You just follow the creek till you reach the road and then you will be all right called Fred aslhe reluctantly followed Norris in another direction Relieved to be entirely alone Kathleen walked slowly through the warm spring sunlight while every step brought fresh enjoyment from the sweet scented eartn After going a way she observed a very high mlrd fence surmounted by several strands of barbed wire A little farther on were large gates and just within a queer Mocking little house She wearily wondered what it was and passed through the gate seeking to be put upon the right path home Within the house tvp men were talking when theywerinterruptedby a tired voiceiPardon me but I fear 1 have lost my way Can you tell me where 1 am v The man nearest stared at her removed his hat and said This is the reservation for the new Woodlawa cemetery and the road takes ypu to the village where you can get a car to the city i But I do not want to go to the vii lage Or to the city I am staying with Mrs Victor Vance Can you direct me t9her house r The other man then came promptly forward I am George Devlin Mrs Vances brother and amon my way thera now if you Oh Im so glad Ive known you a long time so If you are ready lets go at once interrupted Kathleen Cant we get a rlgt asked Devlin turning to the other man You look tiredT turning to the girl and its three miles to my sisters by the road No there aint any team about here said the man Kat leens spirits visibly drooped at this news But the sexton gave them some help by suggesting a short cut throug the cemetery which would save them about a mile He warned them that they must be at the other gate by six oclock the closing hour Kathleen was not so weary now and each step seemed t6 revive her natural cheerfulness Devlin was trying to think where he had met her for her face was strikingly familiar How serious you are Some weighty problem must be pressing heavily upon you began Kathleen her own talkative self again I fear you will think me ungallant but I was wondering where I had met you You i ever met irie at allwftb a merry laugh But you s idv jubadckIloWI1lHe a IougUrnefle ureg 1f i L Lk SO r have but I never saw you untlltodayP The plot thickens may I

one t Kathleen Fielding Then I know you too her ex claimed both through my sister and Miss Manning They were now well Into the un cleared part Of the cemetery which just here was more like a glade in the woods He helpeci her break oft great bunches of the azalea thinking all the while how like this pretty wild flower pinkcheeksbrown eyes were aglow with delight In her fragrant burden and she appeared as happy as a child who had re covered a long lost toy They are the first Ive had jnjI longshe aidHand I used to love them so when I was littleT I would play like these bells were ladies But after somewhat of a pause I suppose you had a little playmate didnt you Oh yes I played with her carried her books and waited on her at all times And she tyrannized over you vof course Kathleen supplemented gaily i No hesmiled she was too gentle for Jhat She just had a way with her even th riof ruling witji gentle ness Even then rVou must know e- rtyetWell slightly I do believe that I am about to stumble upon a second version of An Old Sweetheart of Mine she said gaily No Indeed he replied sucli things only happen in a long while In reality I think it is Whom first we love we seldom

failure was the result I must try again he said cheer fully your friends twIIl be getting uneasy about you will they not f suppose so hesitatingly as the thought came that after all she was not so eager to return Hrhere every one was against her and for the popular Archie whom her friends haft de cided was the very man for her She might have liked him If the others had not tried so hard to make It Come to pass And BOW she was glad since she had met Devlin Then she sudden ly blushed with shame as she realized what a fancy she was harboring for this man who was almost a stranger- I can climb that big tree get out on that large branch and drop over the fence said Devlin then I can find some one to open the gate and let you out Let me out I am going wlthydu Good I But how asked Devlin somewhat puzzled The same wayypu go An allround athletic sirl he agreed No no dont call me tbat It sounds so absurd when L dont look It Be sides 1 do those thin because I love them dont you The woods and the water just call me uI see but few girls understand the call Most of them follow outdoor sports because it Is a fad Really though do you think it quite wise for you to try that tree You might get dizzy No I wont and wed better hurry before it gets so late well You go first so I can belp rouJust put your foot in my hand and fancy you are mounting a tall horse and Ill swing you up so you can catch that branch He was so skillful with his light burden that she went up like a bird and was soon set tIed on one of the branches Devlin scrambled up after her Can tiously he worked his way out on the overhanging limb to see if it wpii beYOnd1thefeuce the ground when an ominous creak simultaneous with a scream from Kathleen proclaimed that the branch was breaking Before Je had time to think he
