Bratton has accepted the appointment as honorary - chairman of the local Flower Shut-In Day committee which, on Sunday, June 14, will parry gifts of flowers into the sickrooms of all this city's permanent shut-ins It is possible to reach. That the mayor has endorsed this worthy movement, a part of the fourth annual International Flower Shut-In Day, was announced today by Tom Clayton, local florist, who is chairman of this city's Shut-In Day committee. "Our florists, who are striving hard to make this movement an outstanding success, as it was in 1933, 1934 and 1935, are deserving of the support of every citizen,' 1 Mayor Bratton declared. "They are asking little of the public- only that our people bring to their flower shop the names and addresses of worthy permanent shut- ins as soon as possible. "The florists then will do the rest. They will gather the finest flowers they can find, arrange them attractively and then, on Sunday, June 14, deliver them to the sickrooms of unfortunates Who rarely, if ever, enjoy flowers. Let's get behind the florists in this generous movement and help them by providing them with names and addresses." Florists who are accepting names and addresses of permanent shut-ins for the delivery of free flowers on June 14 are: Clayton Floral Co., Blossom Shop, Knight Floral. SIX-GUN BETTER THAN BRAND AT ROUNDUP TIME, CLAIMS PIONEER SAN ANGELO, June 11 (/P)—A ready six-gun was better title to cattle than the brand at round-up time in the early days of Texas, says O. C. Schnaubert, 74, pioneer trail driver. Schnaubert, who owns a 20-section ranch 3','2 miles northwest of Langtry, Val Verde county, declared he had often seen the six-guns smoke when outfits came from other parts of the state and argued about who owned certain cattle. Schnaubert first journeyed thru San Antonio In 1879 en route to Leadville, Colo., driving 800 mules, horses, and burros to be used 'n packing ore from that town to major transportation points. The animals came from South Texas, many from the old King ranch. He also made trips with cattle to Dodge City, Kas., where he sold them and then delivered them to Cheyenne, Wyo. The old cowpuncher, who says he M. P. DOWNS Automobile Loans Short and Long Terms REFDTANOINa Small and Large 604 Combs-Worley Bldf. Phone 336 one of the 25 authentic trail drivers in the United States, was working for a big cattle ranch in the Brady section when he was 17. He worked for the D & O H's, the O. H. Triangle, and for the 7 J K's headquarters near Waldrip, an outfit ranging from 10.000 to 1.5,000 horses and mules. Many of the horse outfits took their animals to New Mexico in those days. Sheepmen came In and bought the water holes and the cowmen had to give up. "The cowmen did everything they could to make the life of the sheep- men miserable, but they stuck It out and today I have to admit the sheepmen have the best business," he said. He has sheep, goats, and a few cattle on his ranch. Schnaubert built a house on the west side of the Pecos river out of Del Rio toward Sanderson before the highway bridge was built there. •When they built that bridge they came out and raised the United States flag and the Texas flag and the bands played. I got up and left them for they had taken my country away from me," he said. Schnaubert says he remembers all the crossings over the Pecos. He said the Red Bluff dam, being built north of Pecos, is at the site of old Horse Thief crossing.

He had not questioned Hope's account of herself, had not doubted that she was a parson's daughter—a cowboy parson's daughter—in need of work -and finding it for a day in the circus. The Rev. Silas Devine—if such a person existed—must be puzzling now over the telegram regarding a lady named Hope to whom he must speed at once. Or it might be that he knew indeed a Hope—a relative, a daughter, even—whom it had been safe enough at this distance for one in difficulties to impersonate. Could not the circus have stopped in El Paso? Might not Leonor have learned there of one Hope Devine? .. . Leonor. Carlo and Leonor, though Dirk. Dirk khew now on which Fazzini Hope had called. Her visit had not been to Tony, but to Carlo, Tony's brother, the brother who had cleaned out the Araby, the brother who traveled with the circus. Carlo was in hiding in Tony's house and Hope had crept out to him by night, almost too ill to stand. In hiring Logan and Dinwiddie Dirk had wanted her protected, not accused. Even tonight when these findings had proved so inexorably her place in the puzzle, he had not been willing to give them the key to that place. Logan and Dinwiddie had laug- ed at Martin's account of an intruder the night before. They believed it now only in the light of Hope's visit to Pazzini's house. He had come to her one night, and had almost been discovered. She had gone to him the next. That was what they believed. They did not know what he— Dirk—knew, that the man she had gone to see did not dare leave his room, would not risk discovery of any sort. 1 Dirk knew more than this. He knew that Martin was overwrought. A man who imagines it his duty to shoot when no such duty has been assigned him, may also imagine other things. Martin, Dirk told himself had never heard a voice at all. In any case, whoever, whateve she was, Hope—he could not think of her by any other name—was un wif/osf/ *^r frmf fr' •y MAR6ARET BELl HOUfTON uestionably in trouble, and ill. She might have taken part in Madame Chowdhury's schemes ignorantly, might even be innocent- y involved and unable to extrl- ate herself. ("My shield is scared," she had said, holding the Ig book in her arms.) He did not know, of course, the name of her people in Rio de Janeiro. She would not give it to ilm, would spend her strength in denial and terror if he should ask. Strange that he who was perhaps ler only friend should seem her greatest enemy. Still, certain facts remained. C4ullty or innocent, she was ill. lupert could not come to her, nor could her family. She belonged to him, alone. Now that he knew her secret, he could watch over her with clearer iyes. Graves came the next morning, and learning from Dirk of young Mrs. Joris' reluctance to see a physician, came to her r,oom ostensibly to give her reassuring details about her husband. Hope, he reported afterward to Dirk, had listened attentively. "She was in bed, and I ordered her to stay there. The trouble? Anemia, low blood-pressure, general run-down condition. Danger? . . Well, yes, if we. don't get hold of it. But I think we will. '•Rupert, now. He's .better, on the •whole. But he's making no fight. What interest he appears to take in living comes in the form of worry over his work. Certain cases he has on hand. I want either you or Sanford to go up tomorrow and reassure him." Dirk asked Sanford to go. The work had piled on his own desk and it was nine o'clock thai evening before he dismissed a tired secretary and went home. It was snowing again, steady flakes that froze against his windshield. Things were quiet when he reached the house, only Timothy stirring about, preparing to lock up. Mrs. Joris, Timothy said, was no so well, had had a sort of sinking spell. They had called Dr. Graves That was at six o'clock. She wa better now. Mary was with her. Dirk went up to his room. He was undressing for bed whei TERRORISM OF LEGION TRACED TO CARPLANTS ive Are Accused of Burning Home of Red Suspect DETROIT, June 11 (/P)—The trail f Black Legion terrorism led Into hree large Detroit automotive plants oday. Prank Bice, an Investigator tor he Packard Motor Car company, And foremen In two other automotive actorles were among five men held s members of a Black Legion "In- elllgence squad" accused of burning he home of a suspected communist. Matthew Smith, general secretary f the Mechanics Educational so- lety, a union of tool and die makers, aid that Bice was discovered in a losed meeting of the society two r ears ago. "We searched him," Smith said, and he had membership cards in he M. E. S. A., the American Fed-" eration of Labor, and the communist party. Ho finally admitted he was i member of some kind of an anti- sommunists citizens' committee. Smith's disclosure recalled a recent assertion by William Green president of the American Federa,ion of Labor, that the night riders vorked closely with "labor spies." In custody in connection with the burning of the home of William F vlollenhauer, In Oakland county are Clarence Frye, a foreman in the Dodge truck division of Chryslei corporation; Elvis Clavk, foreman fo the Ternstedt Manufacturing com pany, makers of automobile fit tings, and Albert Swanson, a ga meter reader.

"From the chef, for instance?" "This was no chef," smiled the astute Dinwiddie. Dirk was silent and Logan said, "I have also the information regarding Merritt's Wonder Show. You asked me for it some time ago, but it took time. The show went broke, it seems, and disbanded, down in Rome, Georgia. Akin, an associate of mine in Atlanta, got the facts from the circus book-keeper before the troupe melted away. While he was not in time to find Men-lit, the bookkeeper told him all there was to know about Torrobin and the clown. "J. Torrobin, he was listed, and his hoy, the clown, was known as Rocldie. Here's Akin's letter. Shall I hold the flash so you can read it?" "Tell me what he says," Dirk answered. Somehow, he had little interest now in Torrobin and the clown. "You know, of course," said Logan, "that this J. Torrobin and his boy are the same pair you had me investigate as T. Jones and his son, after the rodeo. I found then they gave practically no address at all to the rodeo booker, and disappeared after the rodeo closed. In the circus they had no address either, joined it while it was in Jersey, and lived with the troupe. '"It was the boy's dare-devil riding that got them the circus job'." (Logan was reading from the etter now). "Merritt was under the weather at the time, and Torro- bin became a sort of sub-manager while the show was in Jersey. Tor- •obin was heartily disliked by the troupe, though the boy was rather a favorite, especially with Senorita Leonor, the equestrienne. The joy was indifferent to Leonor which was just as well. Leonor's previous love had been Carlo, the lion-tamer, and Carlo was noi receptive to any change of heart on Leonor's part. " 'The boy was injured during his act the night the show started south. Merritt, however, had had no intention of taking thi act south with him, because o Torrobin's unpopularity. The troupe 'ated all its bad luck from the ilring of Torrobin. •"There was certainly bad luck .-plenty, rainy weather not being he least of it. Then, just before ;he show left, both Carlo and Leolor disappeared. Nobody knew why at the time, but they real- zed what foresight the two had hown when Madame Chowdhury, .he fortuneteller, was arrested further down the road on charges of jlackmail. Carlo and Leonor were nvolved, and the authorities verc also out for Torrobin. The : our had been conducting a form of the old badger game, I understand. Leonor was petite and jretty, and acted as a decoy. " 'Merritt's circus had been a clean little show up till then. Mer- •itt was already sick, and pretty iear broke, and the business of jhowclhury finished him. Nobody mows where he went. " 'Torrobin, Leonor and Carlo, are still at large. Leonor, it is thought, escaped to her home in Rio de Janeiro. Carlo may have jone with her. Torrobin may still je in New York. A boy who looked and rode like Roddle, the clown, is said to have pulled down jig money in the rodeo there lately. . . ' "Well," said Logan, "that's about all. This J. Torrobin or T. Jones seems to be pretty much of a jinx. Want me to try to get more about him?" Dirk said no. And since their watch at the gate had accomplished its end—"Not the end you think," he heard himself say—it might be discontinued after tonight. "Mrs. Joris is too ill," he said, 'to go out. . . to need attendance of that kind." Dinwiddie remarked, "I thought she looked sick, I thought she walked like it." In his room Dirk read again the letter from Logan's associate.
