Botts, piesidont of the' Now York Cotton Exchange. Mr. Botts also outlines the slops 'which must be taken if American cotton is', to regain a part of its old primacy, or even escape fmlher losses to foreign production. • . * We think his analysis of the situa- -, tion is correct. Ceilainly it is to be ,. hoped that the coming year will see the accomplishment, of .some ol the ''steps he suggests, particularly along the lines of icmoving existing bar- v riots to tiade. At the,.same tune, however, it can" not be too strongly emphasized Dial any further reduction in the living standards of A'mertcan cotton producers would be too high a price lo pay for the recovery of foreign mar' kets. * We cannot afford to abandon production conliol—at least not for so long as the American' tariff system artificially inflates the cost of living of American producers and artificially impairs the buying power of foreign customers for American cotton. ~ t • John Diclsson ** "^ * f i ""One John Bickson, defendant in a ^ ; burglaiy-case, Khcd December 24 in a ,\,Thospital 'at Hot Springs to which he 3fr- -'had been- removed sonic time «rev~ 4ousfry frdm the Hot' Springs-/ply-' jail, The ,'officialt report said-that pneumonia ,;was the cause'of death. ' His father, v in a sNvorn 1 • statement, 7 says> that an autopsy made at his request revealed that Diekson had been beaten so severely that a kidney was i up- tyred and four of his ribs wcie broken. * 1 ' A request for an inquest was te"• if used by the Garland county coroner and Hot Springs authouUes have declined lo make any investigation. Ceilain peculiar circumstances sur„ loumli the tase. Diekson was accused of having participated last spring in a •• ..murderous assault upon ^Police Chief Joe Wakelin of Hot Springs. For rca-" sons for which there ^ has been no v official explanation, when he was finally taken in,to custody last December 14 on a circuit court bench' \yarrant lie was placed in the city jail instead OUT OUR WAY of iii the county jail. When his fii- thci 1 arrived in Hot Springs J)ecembor 16 Jie was told that his son was no longer in jail but had been removed to a' hospital, The authorities, however, declined lo ) revejil in what hospital he was. All of this niiiy moan much or little. But the icfiiiHl of Hot Spring and Garland county officials to permit any investigation does not, to say the least, put a Very good fnce on the matter, If there is nothing to hide why hiwo the authorities taken such pains to smother cdoiis at imjuiry? For political and other reasons Hot Spiings and Gailand county have been permitted to constitute themselves-, pretty much an entity apart from the stale of Arkansas bo far as law enforcement is conceined. Gov.-clett Oarl ID. Bailey has never vie\\cd this situation'with a sympathetic eye. The vole which Gailand comity gave his chief opponent in last August's primary is not likely to have changed his attitude. Perhaps the Diekson affair, coming on the eve of a change in the state administration, may play a part in bunging about Hie veincorpoiation of Garland county as a part of Arkansas.

NOW co ON WITH Tin: STOIIY CHAPTER XIV ••'• T UNCH was a silent nnd diEiiia affair, wilh Ihe hysterica' cries of Tantc Josephine stil echoing through the house, though now to a -lessening degree. Pear' Pierre appeared in time to take his place at the head of iho table as usual. Oddly enough, he seeincc in no way. disturbed by anything that had happened. Ramon noticed that Angeliquc managed to wait for Poarl Fieri'' ns they walked oiit of the room and he heard her trying to per suadc the older do Forest to play a game o£ billiards with her., "It's »> good for you lo relax fo fl few minutes after meals, Mr de. forest," she coaxed with he Hashing smile. TpOR n moment he hesitated then, with a smile, he follovvei her to the billiard room and wa soon engaged in a close battie wit the' ivory balls, for Angcliqn could piay at games as well as sh could play at love. ' ' "Looks like she'd set her: ea for the head of the family, docsn it?" Bob remarked to Betly w they moMil the library.: "VYohde Ahat she's got up'her ;slcevc? supposed Hamon .was high ma with her."

"A ; few. : rri6vb' da: p here and I won't have a «.". : •:- .: . "I'd rather not have any job lan one I can't lot loose of, up ere on this mesa," Betty told him iberly. "That attack of hysterics hich Tnntc Josephine staged just ow was the real thing, though I •m't imagine what could have pset licr so terribly. I can't be- eve it was really Ihc smell pi rnoke. Something else must have appened while I was out of the oom'. She's weak and worn out •oni'hcr-frlghl or rage." • * 4 .* .TEANWIIILE, in the billiard room, the game had ended nd Angeliciue was listening, •kip-eyed, to Pearl Pierre's dc- cviplion of a blooded saddle horse e was thinking of buying. "You ride about the mesa and own on the plains a lot, 1 sup- 'ose," she said,.resting her arm :racefully on the edge of the table o that he might see the lull oauty of its rounded softness. "I oye to vide, too. My father was panish, you know, so wo always lad a great many horses. It's wfiilly romantic living up here he way you do in this old ha- ienda," she went on. "Don't you hid it so?" '.•.'-. : 'Not exactly," he answered slowly. "We have to live here t's our homo, of courso, but our :amily isn't exactly romantic anu ve seldom have outside guests." "And that's such a great pity.' 1 he smiled at him with her lips and eyes and laid a Ismail white land on his knee. "Because yoi ;ee, you're so avvtnlly nice to people when they do come. 1 "Do you think so?" He asked the question, almost wistfully, liiei shrugged.::' 'You don't'appreciate yourself Pearl Pierre," she told him gaily 'You live.up hero so much alone you actually think yourself into being dull and lonely." 'I shouldn't be so if we'hac more guests like you," he an svvered, and for a minute the gir had the grace to feel sorry -fo this morose man with his thin lipped, melancholy face. 'Well,-you've got me now," civ countered, then quickly change! the subject. "And the proferso was telling me there really is a old pueblo underneath this ve'r house." • "The professor is .cracked sbou such things," answered Peai Pierre contemptuously. "I rathe think lie .led your ^impginatio astray..when he pictured.any sue fantastic, arrangement 1 ,,-Tlie^acl are ; that my ancestor, \vlio, bui: tliis house, used for. the foundatio the remains of an old pueblo. Wo have our cellar floored over with cement just as other people do and you'd find it filled with Ihc usual assortment of barrels and p|l boxes of provisions, like other cellars. Perhaps we have a few more, that is all, but when we're eld up here on the mesa by onus, as we arc now, we lywo. o be sure there is enough fo cat." 'You refuse to he romantic icn, even about your fascinating ouse." Angeliquc jumped to her cet and held out her hand. "Well, lanks a lot for sparing me all this me, Poarl Pierre. You don't nind my calling you that, do our'. . . .. • . . ."I want you to, Angeliquc," he cplied, holding her lingers sud- enly very tight.. "You're the nost beautiful, most human IhiiliS liat has come to'brighten Thuri-. er Mesa for many moons. I'm lad the storm did prevent your oing away and leaving us to our :loom again." AS h'c made this gallant specclrf, ]| for a moment they both for- j| £0t that other ominous reason why j hey were all there in the house jl and could not leave. ' ' II The rest of the day passed with-' nit anyone coming along the trail, : ind, after a: tiresome evening,' goodnights. were said. Bob mah- iged lo have a few words wilh 3etty just before she left, and, n the shadow ot the hall, he said earnestly, "Don't forget I'm ready .0 if you need it. I hate to think of you shut up alone .with hnt old lady." "Thanks, but you : needn't worry," she answered. "I'll be all right." She smiled at him over icr shoulder as she walked av;ay. 3ut in spite of her assurance, 10 did not retire. Instead he sat wailing, though he!know- why. Then soft footsteps came down the corridor, - and he sprang up and opened the door carefully. What he saw made him. ; gasp. Pearl Pierre was holding Aiige- lique in his arms. After a minute Angelique went into her room and de Forest' walked rapidly down the hall, quite unconscious that Angelique's door had not stayed closed. 'She svas following him stealthily. Bob watched, as she slipped behind a column and waited until Pearl Pierre'had unlocked a door an4 disappeared. It was the dooi w^;^ the lion's head knocker.
