I •iAnhe walked, dragging his weight like! i» convict's chain 'and'-'bail;' suddenly Jthe^outlines of the, F55 appeared before him. ' . f He realized thatjshe was lying \rtGi Iher bow higher tfian her stern. At kwee he grasped the situation. She sunk with her bow toward land, "He Struggled for Balance as the Sea __,.. Depths Enveloped Him. «nd from this end, therefore, he must start on the ascent of. Fair island's •subterranean base. ' And this discovery renewed his courage. Of course, the others were en. deavoring to make the ascent, while he had gone floundering In the -wrong direction; downward toward the heart of the crater. He made his way parallel with the submarine's bow, keeping well within- eight of the elusive craft, which would . disappear momentarily before his eyes and suddenly appear again, almost ..within 'arm's reach. m Suddenly he -stopped. He stared at the oozy floor. His light had cast his shadow in front of him. But that was impossible. It wns no shadow. It was a flattened man. a dwarfish figure," ridiculously misproportioned, resembling an image seen in a curved mirror. It ap- .proached slowly and uncertainly. For u moment Donald felt his heart stand 'still with fear. It was a nightmare figure, terror incarnate. A little glow flashed from its arm. They drew together. They stood looking at each other, peering through their' thick masks. But in that .vague medium recognition was impossible. Donald suw only the blurred features b'ehina the thick glass that covered' ; the face, distorted and twisted by .the refraction. He surmised that -It was hot Davies. Dayies cpuld have made himself known by any of a number., of symbols of. the seaman's freemasonry. But then, it could not be Clouts., either. He, caught at the figure's hand and raised-• It T to his sleeve Jight. It was • woman's hand—it was Ida's. They'" knew each other.. D/onald took ber fingers, in his,, 'end together they •taijedj.oii the ascent' .... rTovhls horror, Donald perceived that the.water was becoming opaque. It presaged the appearance of the 'sea'monsters. They were In this lair, and this. substance wa? no food,-no plankton that those devils pushed forth "before .them "like: a, veil, but a material'designed to shield them from the. filtering; sunlight. -.. Donaldf, grasped : Ida's hand and fought his way. through, the,, clinging mass. As. he swung his free arm,, upraised, it struck against a rocky barrier overhead. The ooze underfoot had yielded to solid rock. He thrust out his arms on either side, and still found rock. .He realized -that, they we're no longer ascending the mountain, but had struck a cave. Donnld stood still, reflecting. Did Ida understand? There was no way to which to tell her. He was about -to retrace his" steps when he perceived, a long distance in front of him, a tiny glimmer of light. At first he hoped that it was daylight. . But that was impossible. Ida raised her hand and pointed. She, too, had seen it, and had. placed the same interpretation upon it. At every step the light grew clearer. -It was not .stationary, but swung to and fro slowly from^slde to side, rising and falling, yet seeming to-retreat slowly as they advanced. Donald strained his eyes through the mask, expecting every moment to see the ...form of one of his comrades. The light stood still immediately in riront of them, upon a level with Donald's . eyes.: .. He leaned forward, put out Us : -hand : toward it. Suddenly. -Ida ; • • leaped backward, dragging-hlm violently with, .her; There was a .sense ot. Bound, or. vibration, r, like the closlnc of a trap's jaws. They seemed to snap together hardly a foot from Donald's head. .. And he saw suddenly, asrif it had at 'that moment only become yisible, the shadowy v form of i some vast monster lurking within the recesses, of the, cave. It was one of the giant forms of deep-sea life, perhaps holding the same relationship toward the sea beasts as tigers jjo toward men. It might have followed (the 'swarm, when they as-, sembled-in the submarine crater, pre^ paratory to their emigration south- 'ward. ' It was not one of the,monsters that h'ad.i'attacked the .boat,' for Donald : could discern a flshlike body and a huge head with gleaming eyes, and a pair of hinged Jaws that gaped wide cas for the prey that had 'eluded them. The light was a phosphorescent lure used by the creature to draw its vie-' tims within the cavern in which it lurked. The sluggish monster remained quiescent, and again the lure appeared, dangling'between the. jaws from the snout above them. * Donald pushed Ida before him and fled out of the cave until he trod upon the ocean ooze again. And they continued to. crawl at the bottom of the sea, two helpless human creatures, unbelievably helpless, while around.them the fierce, predatory swarms sought their diurnal food. Donald h:id found rlie slope of the island when the water began to grow thick again."" ' Presently a piiu:;pkoresce!it paluli appeared in the distance. It became loss hazy, it seumod to concentrate. The ocean suddenly became like transparent jelly. And, .facing him, Dontild saw tin; outline of one of ^ the sea monsters, visible now and horribly nuigiiilicd. The eyes opened upon his: own. They wore not eurraritliko in that medium, but expanded to the. full, great orbs like sunflowers that glowered'on thi-ir prospective prey, larger than the eyes of any bonst created since leviathan and behemoth. . However, tiie creature ranrte no move toward him as .Donald, almost para- lysed, remained confronting it., He saw the gorilla form, with its short, budding limbs, the trunk of gorilla's thickness, the narrow flippers, and the triangular head. He felt as some primeval man might have done when he looked into the face of the mastodon. The creature did not pursue him, but stood, swaying- gently, dreadfully human. Donald snntcliMl nt.Ida and tried to run. He trained and fell. (To be continued-) Bear Missed His Smoke.

We must not be blind to their significance. We cannot bf wholly free from their influence. Wt have heard echoes of the strange doctrines . preached by bolshevist and Spartacnn; we have felt something ol- their.demoralizing effect in our owr'' social add industrial life. | Whatever excuse may be made foi the rash-excesses of peoples who. have, suffered for~ye;irs from autocr«t!c op-' pression, thei-e can be no excuse for re. .sort to like methods In the United' States. - , ' " ' | \The people of "Russia and the'pepplfj of Germany had no training in political freedom, no -experience of democratic institution!?. They'swunpt from despot ' • ism to liberty with sudden movement, and In the swift change lost theli : heads. It is not from such sources' that we should look for wise guidance, nor in such experience that we should hope to find example. t I In a land where the only sovereignty . recognized is that of the people; where every citizen has equal rights under the law,- and equal opportunity for ex- j pressing his will at the liallot box,] there does not exist the vestige of an excuse, for resorting to methods ot Intrigue, subversion and violence in .order tn obtain change. ., - j Not only is there no excuse for such a policy, but to pursue these methods, or to ndvocnte them, is to be-guilty of treasonable offense against the sov- erelitnty of tiie people. | We may and do grant to men thro right to discuss freely every' sort, of •pf'ltical and economic idea in Amer-i icu; but we deny thj right of nny! group or class to seek to impose it3 program of political or economic' .change ngainst the will of the major-' ity. and by means alien to American 1 institutions. It is here that the Issue must he sharply drawn, and -it is on' this line that we are justified In mak-' ing our fight. I A man who preaches in America the doctrine of class conflicts and class ad-! vantage; who advocates the rule ot any group that is less than a majority of the people; who seeks to attain his ends by methods that do violence to the Constitution and laws of the land : —that man is an enemy of America, ' ?£?. 5'S'.. !2_.JB sti .?? t°. ourselves must : treat him'as'an enemy. I The remedy for all'ourtlls—political,' social and economic—lies within our .'. power by the, methods ordained-In our .fundamental law. We do not deny the! existence of ills. We do not claihi"- that America has attained a perfect! government, that she has "made liberty ' absolutely secure and justice, infalli-' hie. But we do.'claim that there is no co-untry In the world in' which democracy, .has reached a higher development, or ia which the people are more completely in control of their own destiny. Remember, America is not an autocracy; neither ic it a pure democracy, hut a republic, and a-republic-is a.democracy made safe by a majority choosing from the-whole Body—by the ballot;—a'small number of the most fit to deliberate and act for all. " It' Is only as the collective intelligence of the people rises to a higher j plane and takes firmer grasp upon-our common problems thnt we may hope [ .to advance more nearly to the goal j foreseen by the men who : wrote the Declaration of Independence an'd gave us the Constitution', as the instrument whereby-the lofty idealism and enduring principles of the Declaration- may be ever more fully expressed in oiir-na-' tional life. Tiie appeal to ptissinni the fomenting of class strife, the resort to lawless methods—these all hinder our progress. Every real American -knows thnt the answer and remedy for- all this is the intelligent, effective use of the ballot. But (his must be more than merely a creed. What is needed right now Is that every man who. believes it shall increasingly practice and preach it. — We must, all go forward together. The great need today is to promote better understanding among .the various group's of our people, and closer co-operation . in seeking .the common good.

Farmers are constantly confronted with the problem of maintaining soil fertility'.'. At this time, following the war period, when an unusual strain i was' placed on -American farms, the problem is more acute than usual and the waste manure assumes a more serious aspect. ^ ..-'-,•' Much Could Be Saved. ' Of course, all'the manure cannot be. saved. Some of it, at' the. best,, must: be lost. But millions of dollars worth of-ii could be. saved with practically no added.expense, and with comparatively little outlay of time and effort. . The cheapest and best way to handle manure^ where convenient,. Is to, haul It to, the- field -and spread It daily, or. at least every, two , or "three days. In this,-.way, if .plenty of used,, practically all' the valuable, constituents of the manure are saved, since leaching after the manure is on nrable. land merely serve.8. to pur the" fertilizing materials where they ought to be. In this way, too, loss tl.rougli beating, or "fire-fanging," is avoided. ,. ^ Qpncrete Pit Is Ideal. SIany_ farmers, however, are not'so situated as to make It profitable for them to-handle manure in this. way. For such farmers the concrete manure pit offers an ideal way of saving manure. Such_n pit need not entail great expense. A pif three feet deep, twelve, feet long, and six feet wide, with walls and floors five inches thick, will; serve , the needs of the aver'ifge farm. In ground that does not cave in, only an Inside form will be needed for such a pit, except-,where the concrete extends n few .inclies above the ground to 'prevent flooding by -surface water.. • The. floor should be re-enforced with woven- :Wlre fencing, put in after about two ;Inc'h'& o'f''cement^has."'tte'en' ! tald,; the, section' 1 of ' JSncirig ''being" cut' v long enough^, to bend up a few'Inches jit; either end Into, the side walls.:.

Anojher Good Plan. - Auother'good way-to-save manure, especially .In-.the case of. hogs or. of •beef ea.ttle, is to have a concrete-payed feed lot, preferably under a shed roof. Where .the farmer cannot afford a .paved floor, a cheap open feeding shed may be... made :'tpj serve , tile purpose very well, if abundant bedding is used- to absorb the..valuable liquid manure. In such a feeding.lot or sbed : the manure is allowed to gaftier'under the feet of the animals, each day's, bedding being' strewn ' over the .wellr tramped accumulation below.' Some farmer's ..using, this'; system- arrange their feed racks so .that they.; can be raised : from.'time-to time, .^making It possible to ( feed till several feet of solidly. . packed jnanure tias .accumulated under the' shed. It has been shown, that manure .suffers little, from heating and leaching when handled In this way. - . Advantage of Feeding. Shed. The feeding shed serves the purpose of giving'the general farm, or the beefccattle farm, something of the advantage- in the matter, of manure fsaving..he!d by the intensive, dairy farm,- It has been shown- by f ami 'management surveys, tbat the. manure saved on the American farm under present conditions is almost.ex- actly proportional to the number of animals.'fed under cover on the farm, and .that tHe manure of animals not stabled, has very little effect on yields, except In cases where field crops are "hogged-off" or otherwise pastured .down or where'pasture'Is used in a rotation. There is a bulletin of the United States department of agriculture—: Farmers' Bulletin No. 978—devoted io the handling- of barnyard manure. It will be sent free to applicants. LAUKA E.
