King, Commander-in-Chief of the United States Fleet, declares that the speed of our advances in the European and Pacific war theaters has imposed a heavy strain upon reserves of certain vital supplies. He warns that unless some production deficiencies are wiped out, the tempo of our Pacific operations Will be slowed down. The Admiral was speaking on the occasion of the inauguration of a national drive to sell $14,000,000,000 worth of war bonds. He admitted that the war is "well ahead" of last year's expectations, but pointed out w.vo, at one time, h:a hoped to rc-.rry Craig: Nicliv Scnour, Alex-la's t-vt'n broth--! ; and Peter Hu-ber. friend ot Craiir. Anna Haub, luei 1 ai the 3-ent mansion, told tovf Craiff w?.s found in the garden the previews night, adding, "Beev-e-ia, .bs butler, said it was an Craig was cleaning a SJii."

They had married mcr ' n a year ago and Conrad Bre " nade no etfort to conceal his disapproval. Craig's work in i':e diplomatic service summoned hint to Washington, and Drue re-tu-ne:l to New York. Shortly after, he rc-r.;ved a letter from Conrad ' irh tie claimed Craig had asked fci.v to vrrit, stating his sop had re-'V-ied to enter training a an aviator, only to discover married .ien were ineligible. Conrad said Craie wi-KH Drue to divorce him, oat promised they conld remarry, "jh ratcrnal blessing, when the t: ainins period was over. Drue got the divorce but never received any r:'y to the letters ahe wrote Cratf;. How, she is determined not to leave ontil Craig regains con-sc.orsnes and can talk with her. Dr. t'rivsry tells the state trooper inves;itms the shooting, that the btJlet he removed from Craig's snouldev was accidentally thrown t-.vtv; the ffun, too, is missing. He wai n Sarah not to repeat anything lbs patient might say in delirium. Later, Craig mumbles aomething about "yellow gloves." From the v indow, Sarah sees Drue disappear behind a hedge in the garden and emerge later with something hid-d:n Seneath her cape. A few min-ut later she enters the sick room, re-rJv for duty. Sarah is telling the story. CHAPTER NINE 7Jtng Brent moved a little and rpoke again. He said, "But that's murder. Tell Claud. There'll be murder done."

He didn't come into the room but made a kind of gesture toward me, which was a nice blend of respect and - a page out of the past. . ' But the thing I noticed mainly was the bright, inquisitive way her dark eyes peered out ot hat easels, sallow face. She gave a short kind of nod and went on and petticoats rustled as the crossed the marble floor. Otherwise, however, Maud Chivery moved with an utter and complete silence which never ceased to astonish me.

When I crossed to him the butler (William Fanshawe Beevens, age fifty-four, in the Brent employ for twenty-one years; so the record ran) beckoned me into the hall. "Mr. Brent," said he, "wishes to speak to you. It will be only a moment." Well, of course I could leave.

Johnson. The stale show for Black Langshan is to be held fn connection with the Clinton show, this year, and this promises many fine birds of this breed. It is customary for the organizations devoted to special breads to hold their state show, annually, with some outstanding local show. Another fact Mr. Johnson points to is the fact that some Black Langshans are coining directly from the Chicago coliseum show, one of the finest and greatest to compete in Clinton.

He expressed confidence that the progress that has been made will not sap the nation's determination to carry on with every means that can be mustered. No American, who is able to understand what is taking place in Europe- and in the Pacific, can fail to appreciate the magnitude of the war effort in which this nation is engaged. Only the military and naval experts, cognizant of the demands of modern warfare, can estimate the enormous amount of material required to conduct successful offensive operations. Ordinary Americans, however, ought to be able to understand and appreciate the policy of our war leaders, who seek, without equivocation, to save lives by the lavish use of material and ammunition. We would not attempt to convince our readers that a failure to buy a war bond will mean the lack of guns, planes, tanks or ammunition. On the contrary, we are firmly convinced that the Government will make it certain that our fighting men have what they need to do their job. We would say, however, without fear of contradiction, that a nation at war must have unlimited financial support from its people if it is to continue to make a supreme belligerent effort. A Government of a country, like a private citizen, must pay for what it buys. Obviously, there is a possibility that a modern government, facing a tremendous war, might run out of cash. This would be true of the United States, like other nations, if it were not for the loyal support tient.

FOR MY MASTERS PAi WHAT HE PIECE accrue from a successful war. Certainly, if either Germany or Japan conquers the United States, the wealth of the nation will be confiscated and, in plain language, this means the wealth of individuals. The United States asks its people to lend their money at a fair rate of interest. Under the Selective Service Law, men are drafted from peace-time lives, trained in the art of warfare and compelled to risk their lives in defense of the nation and its people. To finance the war, however, the ' Government does not draft capital. It only asks that those who are able, lend some of their money, to be repaid with interest. Compared to lives lost, the capital loaned to the Government is nothing. We urge all readers to make a prompt response to the Sixth War Loan appeal. The word must go out to the world that ' this nation is in earnest in its wars, that its people are supporting their fighting men and that every American who risks his life in battle has been given all that money can buy to strengthen him in the home of Mr and Mrs. Carroll Short of Vermillion.
