• I • I • THE roiil DAILY SATURDAY, juiiY ia IMS It is the best Oil Stock to buy. There is nothing on the market to equal it. Let us tell you why? It is only capitalized at $200,000 while nearly eyery ; company in, the field is capitalized at $1,000,000 therefore one share of tte McKinley CRUDE STOCK is worth five' shares of the Million Dollar Company's Stock or two and one- hilf shares of the half million Company's stock. Stock selling in a million dollar company at 10 cents per share would be equal to McKinley Cru^ at 50 cents {per share Eyery $2000. will pay a. One Cent Dividend on the McKinley Crude. We have two splendid Oil Wells now, No. 3 drilling. Standard Oil Company pipe line goes right by our wells.; We believe t^ese two wpUs will pump 50 barrels per day or $1500 per month or $1.8.000 per year, or 9 per cent on par value of the stock, or 30 per cent on the price of our stock today, if we can do this from two wells now in, what can we pay our shareholders wnen we get ten wells. For a few days only you can buy Treasury stock at 25 cents per scare, par value $100. This is only equal to 5 cents per share in a Million Dollar Company. Buy stock where there is oil where is now an established market waiting you. In order to buy a Pumping Plant 20,000 shares wUl be sold, then |:|;ices go up. Honest careful and conservative management. We invite your inspection of our property. Subscriptions received by F. S- BENNETT, Ptest, GEO. McKINLEY, Ttcs'r JOE McKINmV, Sec'y lola, Kansas.

Then rising and stepping aside, the long-suffering woman re\'Tealed the palid, senseless face—^not of the little Indian maid, her shrinking charge and guest—but of the niece she loved and had lived and lied for many and trying years—Xanette La Fleur, a long-lost sister's onlj' child.

CO., JOPLIN.MO K Pete j was still at large, per- chaiice, with Stabber's braves. Tliero was not another man about the traj der's place whom i Flint or others could suspect. Yet the sergeant of the guard, searching cautiouslj' with his lantern about the post of Number Six, had come upon some suggestive signs. The snow was trampled and bluody about the place where the soldier fell, and there were here and there the tracks of moccatsined feet-^ those of a young woman or child going at speed toward the hospital, running proljably, and followed close by a moceasiued man. Then those of the man. alone, went s])rintjiig down the bluff southeastward over the fiats some distance south of the Foster's doorway and up the oppt>site bluff, to a j>oint where four ponies, shoeless, had lieen huildled for as much, perhaps, as luilf an Ixiur. Then all four liad come scampering down close to- getlier into tlie sjiace below the hos- {)ital, not ."lO yards fr<ini wliere the' sentry fell, aixi tlie moeeasincd feet «)f a man and woman had scurried down tlie l)luff from the lif)spital win- ilow. to jnt<-t tliem west of Foster's slianJ\'. Then tJiere hnil been confusion- troul>le of Hois'e kind-. One pony. i)ursiied n short dist.nnce, had i)r<(ken aw.iy; th«« otliers had gone pounding out southe.-istward up the Klope .-md' out i>ver tlie uplands, ! then down again: in wide sweep, through the valley of the little rivulet and along the low bench southwest of the fort, cmssing the. Rock aprmgs roacT nnn stnKiirg. rurthcr on, diagonally, ihe Rawlins trail, where Crabb and his fellows^ had found it aiid followed. But all this took hours of time, and meanwhile, only half revived, Nanette had been gently, pityingly borne away to a sorrowing woihan's home, for at last it was fonnd, through the thick and lustrous hair, that she, too, h id been otruck a har .sh and cruel blow; tlmt one rea-. son, prol)ably, why she luid been able to ojipose no stou' er resistance to so slender a girl as Kstlier Dade was that slie. was al vady half dazed through the stro ce of some blunt, heavy weajion, wielded probably by him she risking all to save. Meantime the major had been pur~ suing his investigations. Schmidt, the soldier sentrj- in front of ^Moreau's tloor, a simple-hearted Teuton ^)f irre- proachal)le character, tearfuly protested agtiinst his incarceration, lie had obeyed his orders lo the letter. The major himself had brought the lady to the liosj^ital and showed her In. The door that had been open, permitting the sentry constant sight of the prisoner, had been closed by the coumiauding oHicer himself. Therefore, it was not for him, a private soldier, to presume to reopen it. The major said to tlie lady he would return for her soon after ten, and the lady smilingly (Schmidt did not say how smilingly—how bewitchingly smilingly, but the major needed no reminder) thanked him, and said, by that time she would be ready. In a few minutes she came out, saying (doubtless with the same bewitcliing sriiile) she would have to nm over home for scmjething, and she was gone nearly half an hour, and all that time the door was ojien, the prisoner on the bed in his blankets, the lamp brightly burning. It was near tattoo when she returned, with some things under her cloak, and she was breathing quick and seemed hurried and shut the door after tiianking him, and he saw no more of hei- for 15 minutes, when tlie door oj )ened and out slie came, the same cltiak around her, yet she looked (litTerent, somehow, and must have tiptoed, for ho didn't hear her heels as he hitd before. She didn't seem quite so tall, either, and tliat was all, for he never knew anything more about it till the steward came running to tell of the escape. So Schmidt could throw but little light upon the situation, save to, Flint himself, who did not then see fit to Bay to anyone that at no time was it covenanted that Miss Flower should be allowed to go and come unattenaed. m Ooing so she nao tie- Ijdded some one beside the sentry. :It was late in the night when Number Six regained his senses and could tell his tale, which was even more damaging. Quite early in the even- ii^, so ho said—as • early as nine o'clock—he was under the hospital corner, listening to the music, further up along the bluff. A lady came from the south of the building as though she were going down to Sudstown. Mrs. Foster had gone down not long before, and Ilcigan, with a lantern, and two officers' ladies. But this oim came all alone and spoke to him pleasant-like and saidj she was so Borry he couldn 't be at the dance. She'd been seeing the sick and \yound- ed in hospital, she said, and was going to brjng some wine and jellies. If he didn 't mind, she'd t«ke the path 'around the quartermaster's storehouse outside, as she was going to Mr. Hay's, and didn 't care to go through by the guardhouse.' So Six let her go, as he "had no ordejs agin it" (even though it (lawno<l upon hlnj' that this must be the _ young lady that Ivud been carried of? by the Sioux). That made him think a bit, ho said, and when she came back with a basket nicely covered witli a white najikin, she made him take a big chicken sandwich "S «ire I didn't know how to refuse the lady, imtil she i)oured me out a big tumbler of wine—wine, slie said, she was taking in to Sergt. Briggs and Corporal Turner that was shot at the Elk, and siie couldn't bear to see me all alorte out there in the cold." But Six said he dasn 't take the wine. He got six months "blind" once for a similar solecism, and, mindful of the major's warning (this was diplomatic). Six swore he had sworn off, and had to refuse the repeated requests of the lady. He suspicioned her, he said, because she was so persistent. Then she laughed and said good-night and went on to the hospital. What became of the wine she had poured out? (This from the grim and hitherto silent doctor, seated by the bedside.) She must have tossed it out or drunk it herself, jierhaps, Six didn't know. Certainly no trace of it could be foimd In the snow. Then nothing hap- j)cned for as much as 2D minutes or so, and he was over toward the south end of his post, but facing toward tlie hospital when slie came again down the steps, and this time handed him some cake and told him he was n good soldier not to drink even wine, and asked him what were the lights away across tlie Platte, and he coiydn't see any, and Was following her pointing finger and staring, and then all of a sudden he saw a milhon lights dancing and stars and bombs and that was all he knew till they began talking to him here in hosjjitai. Something had hit iiim from beliind, but he coultln't tell what. Flint's n«rve was failing him, for here was confirmation of the general's theory.. / .\nd so it was with hardened and resentful licart that the inajor sought her on the morrow.

It; was to tell Mrs. Hay and Nanette, especially Nanette, why the sentries were re-established about their home that, though he would not place the trader's niece within a garrison cell, he should hold her prisoner beneath the trader's roof to await the action of superior authority on the grievous charges lodged at her door. She was able to be up, said Miss McGrath— not only up, but down—down In the breakfast room, looking blither and more like herself than she had been ,sluce she was brouglit home. "Say that Maj. Flint desires to sec her and ilrs. Hay," said Flint, witU majesty of nxien, as, followed by two of his ofiiccrs, he was shown into the trader's purl or. And presently they eume—Mrs. Hay pale and sorrowing; Miss Flower, pale, perhaps, but triumphantly defiant. The one sat and covered.her face with her hands as she listened to the major's few words, cold, stern and accusing. The other looked squarely at him, with fearless, glittering eyes: "You may order what you like so far as I'm concerned," was the ut-. terly reckless answbr of the girl. "I don't care what you do now that I know he is safe—free—and that you will never lay hand.s on Irim again." "That's \yhere you are in error. Miss Flower," was the major's calm, cold-blooded, yet rejolceful reply. It was for this, indeed, that he had come.
