REFUGEE VISITORS CHAPTER VIII TUNE PATERSON'S hnnd was v rinsed lo ner mouin as u in nttempt to recapture the outcry that had revealed her presence. The silly bag was at her feet and thus she stood, a lovely, xrigni- encd girl outlined in the glow of a searchlight. Captain Jackson's scowl was swiftly erased: a star tling while grin made a gash in his dark face and Ms eyes reflected inner fires. "Cttramba!" he said softly. "An' I thouifht thces one I 'ave was beautifull Senoritn, you 'ave thee suitcase. You wish passage, no.' You want get away from here, no?" He leaped down from the cabin roof, strode forward rapid ly. "Juan! Take the Senonla s bag! Pronto, fools. Theenk wc 'ave all night?" The girl stood transfixed, star ing In tenor nt tho prune figure of MucUowell. A moment before he had been a staunch, trust' worthy figure, armed with . nistol. belligerent, aggressive. Now he was deathly still, a rtvuiei of blood coursing down his neck "No!" she cried violently. "No, don't want to go away The attacker whose blackjack had so quickly subdued Mac-Dowell was attempting to wrest the bag from her lingers when Leonard Halsey galvanized to life. With a low grow! lie rushed, lowering his shoulder so that the man called Juan was sent reeling backward Into the oncoming Cap tain Jackson. The action was swift and the Impact solid, and the swarthy, swagsering skipper fell backward, twisting in des perate attempt to save himself. The shotgun had him off balance; its butt struck the pier with a re sounding flitonck and the roar of its discharge blasted heavenward. Perilously close, that lury oi hot and fire had been. Then vent followed event in confusing wiftness. Halsey scooped tip MocDowell's pistol. The huge native Tomos moved with the peed of light, capturing Juan In his great hands, Sebasticn, clutch ing his Injured arm, kicked viciously and accurately at a fallen man who was attempting to rise. Only Bill Talcott did not move. Whether bewildered or frightened, he stood stockstill, lifting not a linger to assist Halsey. Talcott's face was devoid of expression, his eyes blank, his arms at his side. Back, all of you!" Halsey shouted, leveling the pistol. "Talcott, pull yourself together! You, Jacksoiu got those men aboard and get out of here. I warn you, I'll fire at the slightest disobedi. ence! " r There was one coming over the side witli a knife in his teeth. Unhesitatingly Halsey fired. The knife man yelled In pnin, scram bled hastily back to the deck. War Is Declared Against Crickets CONDON, Ore., May 20 (UP) Farmers and stockmen today prepared a spring offensive on the dreaded pest, the cricket. The extermination will be fought by airpjnnc and ground equipment in an attempt lo drive off swarms prevalent lit harvest time permanently.

AS for the fellow In black Tomas' hands; a single thin dry scream had come from his hps. Only once it sounocd and then ho was quite limp. As if ho were a bag of nitrato, Tomas tossed him aboard with a mighty thrust: moved to the next, picked him up and slung him to tho ship's deck and thus with tho lost until of the schooner's crew only Jackson remained on the pier. The swagger was gone from the dark skipper. His face was livid with fear, his eyes riveted on the gun in llalsey's hand. "Donl shoot me." he begged. "Don't shoot " Talcott was coming over. Head down, legs spread, anger sup- planting the blankness in his eyes. "Halsey," Talcott said m u cold. unnatural voice, "It wosn t neces sary to shoot that mm.. I'm still in charge here, and while I'm boss there II be no gun play on Abas. Put that nistol awav." Halsey's mouth gaped in astonishment. "Have you lost your mind?" he gasped. Talcott shrugged. "There's been too much noise already. I'm surprised the natives aren't on our ears by this time. You know how much chance we'd stand. ' "But your foreman, Sobastien "Sebastien was knifed," Talcott said calmly. "Knives moke no noise. It was Jacksons idea to scare us by firing that first shot, He Boesn t appreciate, or care, what we're up against on this island. But you should. So put the gun away." Hardness settled-. on Halsey's face. "Of nil tho fools," he grunted. Swinging, he jibbed the pistol in Jackson's side. "I'll see that the authorities hear of this, Mr. Jackson. I'm the new manager here and you won't find me as easy to get along with as Talcott seems to have been. Now, what bout these passengers you have? N answer, the heads of a raal and a woman appeared over the side. The woman, June Pater-son saw in that swift moment. was dark with the throbbing beauty of foreign lands. Her skin wns clear Ivory and her eyes wero great dark pools of fear, The man who followed her was a most remarkable creature. He possessed a tremendous quantity of hair that must have been dyed. nd his eyes were hidden behind lliick-lensed glasses that gave his round face Uie appearance of an orange hiding behind automobile headlights. He was shaking vio lently. A word of protest was on Tal cott's lips but Halsey ignored him, I understand you have papers" Halsey asked briskly. Tho woman nodded abjectly. Halsey glared at the schooner's master, and hurriedly Jackson searched: found a stained, dirty envelope in his hip pocket, passed it over. "Open it up and read tne contents," Halsey ordered June Paterson. Dawn was flooding the sky when, in the light of a pier lamp, June Putorson opened the envelope. Uppermost was a pass port issued in the name of Martha Swenson and the photograph It horo was an excellent likeness of thq woman. The other was for Professor Albert Constantine, followed by a list of degrees, and its ' photo too seemed authentic enough lo Identify the strange little man. 'tThese seem to be in order," she announced. Halsey nodded. "Good. We'll hear their stories later. Do you have luggage?" In answer two suitcases came hurtling over side to crash on the pio. Having asked and received tho answer that these were all, Halsey prodded the deflated skipper aboard his vessel. Not a word was spoken as the schooner's auxillnry moved the dirty gray hull away into the cobalt sea. On the pier, Mac-Dowell groaned suddenly and sat up. Halsey leaned down and expertly scanned the detective's wound. June Paterson watched, marveling at Halsey's calm efficiency; watched, too, with open contempt as Talcott stood ineffectually by. Talcott seemed to have shrunk in sUiture; already Sebastien and black Tomas were regarding Halsey with the faithful eyes of dogs. Dully she wondered if what had been intimated about Talcott might not after all be true. (To Be Continued) Pieces of quart, often contain several minute cavities filled with water. Grange Hall GRANGE HALL A contest, "The best talk or essay on garden preparation," with O. C. Fleshman, Frank Jasper and R. A. Masterlon taking part, composed the main part of the lecture hour program nt the last grange meeting. Fleshman won first place, receiving for a prize a pound of Wallace's famous hy-bred sweet corn seed. Mrs. Laura Bates, chuirman of; the agriculture committee, hod charge of the contest. The rest of tho entertainment consisted of songs and a roll call, "What is your best paying crop? At tho business session it was decided that Blue Mountain Growers Ban Jap Easter Lilies BROOKINGS, Ore., May 20 (UP) Croft lilies will replace Japanese Easter lilies, marketed all over the nation from here, because of the rising prejudice throughout the country, growers announced today.
