Nancy fears Paulino will use the 'money Nancy inherited from her father to back him in a theatrical venture. Nancy's heiress chum, Marcla Farnsworth, wires for a ranch reservation, using her own name, confirmation to go to "Wm. F. Waller" at Smith's office. Donald Sturgis, young garage mechanic, jumps at Smith's idea that he get a job at T Slash and look after Nancy. Smith gives him expense money but in a crowd Smoothie Dick, Alexander's tool, "lifts" Don's roll and Smith's wallet. Smith suspects Don and, signing Itimself Waller, wires the Jinitown sheriff Smoothie learns she now has the securities representing her to arrest Don. Trailing Nancy, inheritance. To double-cross Alexander, he follows Nancy, wiring Sol Pcrriwell as "Roger J. Barclay" thr.t he's a ranch huyer. Don "rides the rods" to Wyoming and is known at T. Slash as Cinders Bslloy. At the Jinitown stage station Nancy induces Roberto (Bobbie) Row- Ian d, now ranch maid, to change clothes and identities. Complications begin \yhen Don surprises Nancy reading a letter from her uncle addressed "Marcla Farnsworth." Young Tony Perriwell proposes to Bobbie, thinking she's the Farnsworth heiress, and is accepted, and Kirk Maxwell interviews her for a society paper. Nancy's securities and Maxwell's manuscript are stolen as Nancy gets a letter from her uncle saying Pauline's securities were stolen and Nancy is suspected. INSTALLMENT 27 right important folks out to Per- riwell's T Slash, and a jigger name of Waller has sent a heap o' wires. He's secretary to the folks whose girl — worth a million dollars on the hoof— is out there, I driv her over to Jimtbwn special, not on my reg'lar trip, and she's the niftiest little package of a lady—" Think she's all right, do you, Halfaday? So do I. Get your telegrams and let's roll. Let's roll!" However, John Williams could not hasten Halfaday Hank. He slouched into the telegraph office and slouched out again. "Nothin* for Miss Lou ner any other dudes. Just one telegram for Roberta Rowland. She's the hired girl out there." "Roberta Rowland!" clipped J. W. "Let me see that wire." "It's sealed up, mister." "I'll open it" "No, sir!" Halfaday Hank almost wrecked his car as he snatched the envelope from John William Smith, "Hey, are you locoed?" "Sorry, Hank. I shouldn't have done that. I am sort of loco, the main reasons being a couple of special delivery air mail letters; one for me, and the other for Mrs. Smythe who told me over the phone what that letter said. The two were enough to send me sky- hootin' west in a hurry. . . Tell me all about things at this T Slash. The people and everything." Halfaday Hank obliged as the long dreary road to Jimtown slid behind his rolling wheels. Dawn was breaking when they paused at Sheriff Crowder'g office. The sheriff's door was unloncked and he had left a note: "Gone to the T Slash. Back when you see me com- find out," Hank 'Now what's the sheriff learned to send him out there, before I got to his ear?" asked J. W. "Reckon we'll finH ""*" suggested. "Yes. Hurry, man. . .

Whenever he reproached or upbraided Tony for not working, Tony retorted in kind. Still fuming, Jie ranchman found himself at iCirk Maxwell's cabin before it occurred to him no guest would care :o be disturbed at this hour, when :he glorious pink of a newborn day was beautifying the farther peaks behind the old ranch and slowly creeping down bald ridges and darkly forested slopes. Old Sol took notice of Slim Cummings sauntering from the bunkhouse toward the stable to wrangle the cavy; took notice of smoke lifting from the high stovepipes at the cookhouse to announce that Ike Skittles had started his breakfast fire. Plumb good old man, old Ike, reliable as a faithful horse except only when he went on a hellbender, got drunker'n 700 dollars and blowed in all his wages. Sol wet his lips -reminiscently. Some party, that last time when he and other old-timers, convivial souls all. had joined Ike Skittles. Kirk Maxwell's door was suddenly thrown open. Turning. Sol saw the lanky, Roman-nosed tenderfoot with a gun in his hand, glaring at him. "Ho! You!" said Maxwell curtly anl put the gun in _his hip pocket. "Excuse the rod, but I was ready for any thief who'd come skulking around my cabin again. Got my hew article and new pictures wrapped and ready to go. This time I wasn't taking chances of losing the stuff." "That's bully. By the way, Tony said 'twould be hunky for me to see that New York paper." "He really did?. . . Come in, Sol. Here it is. Look at the page that's folded out." Maxwell walked to the window at the far end of the cabin and waited for the reaction of "ye genial host of the T Slash Dude Ranch." "Maxwell! Maxwell!" Sol's voice strongly resembled that of a crow. "If these pictures is right, and they must be—must be—who in hell is that girl?" "What girl, Sol?" Maxwell knew to whom Sol referred but he was enjoying the old-timer's bewilder- 'Her in Cabin One who claims ment. she's Marcla Farnsworth?.

She's Nancy Eleanor Smith, out here under an assumed name to dodge a slicked her silly stepmother wants her to marry. There you have the whole story." "Huh? How the devil do you know this girl who ain't Miss Farnsworth is Nancy Eleanor Smith?" Maxwell was taken aback. "How well was now more dismayed than his host. "Great Scott! if I've made another mistake I'll go nuts." "Come on!" old Sol grunted and the two men marched determinedly to Cabin Number One, where quite unexpectedly Mrs. Perriwell met them with the abrupt statement, "Sol, that ranch buyer's up already and he's' raising the roof because his car's gone." "His car gone? Barclay's car gone?" Old Sol Stammered blankly. "By dogies, it must be—I don't see it no place." "I was the first one to miss that car," said Ruth Perriwell. "Whoever took Barclay's automobile left a can of beans where it had been parked. Also an old blue sweater wrapped around a bundle of some kind. I've taken those things to the cookhouse." Old Sol muttered, "A trade rat, huh?" "I don't get this talk about trade rat," ejaculated Maxwell. "I'll explain 'bout trade rats later," said the ranchman. "Right now—Ma, you go into this cabin. Wake up that girl and get her into her clothes. Me and Maxwell's got sdmethin' to ask her." "What about?" demanded Mrs. Perriwell. "I can't burst in on a guest and order her to dress. Sol, are you drunk or—?" "Look!" Sol Perriwell flipped his newspaper in front of his wife's eyes, a stubby, shaking forefinger pointing out the pictures of Marcla Louise Farnsworth. "Now. Ma, will you drag out that girl?" "Will I!" said Ruth Perriwell. At the stable, Slim Cummings had led out two saddled horses. A moment he stood gazing in wrath and bewilderment toward Cabin Number one. Then, dropping the bridle reins, he strode that way with a fiery glint in his eyes and a far from pleased expression on his lean brown face. , (To Be Continued) o Bedtime Stories By THORNTON W. BURGESS Things Happen All At Once Jolly, round, bright Mr. Sun, high in the blue, blue sky, looked down on as peaceful a scene as ever was. In the covyyard back of the barn of this particular farm stood several cows contentedly chewing their cuds, as they took their daily airing. Half a dozen fat liens were walking about among them and scratching the straw. Out in the farmyard in front of the barn were many more fat hens. Behind a pile of old boards just outside the cowyard was a spot of red. In the top of a tall tree not far distant was a spot Winning Contract By THE FOUR ACES (David Burnstone, Merwin D.

Heiachiro Togo, pictured on the stamp above. Togo was six years old in 1854, when Com. Matthew Calbraith ! Perry, representing United States, opened Japan's closed ports to world trade. At his death, 80 years later, Japan was seeking domination of the Client. Togo played a most important part in the development of modern j Japan, remains one of the nation's 'greatest heroes. He entered the navy, was sent to England for training. In 1894 he precipitated the Sino- Japanese War by sinking a Chinese troopship. He also established the Japanese policy of fighting undeclared war. Admiral Togo's greatest victory was that of the Russo-Japanese War when the Japanese fleet he commanded defeated the Russian armada at Tsushima in May, 1905. Togo was hailed as the "Nelson of Japan". skyward in a lazv way. Looking down on the great world, jolly, round, bright Mr. Sun saw no more peaceful scene anywhere. By and by a fat hen walked over to the bars of the cowyard and hopped up on the lower bar. There she sat for some time. Then, making up her mind that she would see what was outside she I hopped down and walked over to jthe pile of old boards. Right then things happened all at once. That red spot behind the pile of old boards suddenly came to life. There was a quick spring and that fat hen was seized by the neck so suddenly that she didn't have time ito make a sound. At the same instant the black spot in the top of the tall tree came to life and Blacky the Crow flew over the roof of the barn screaming at the top of his lungs. Now those who know Blacky well, know when he is screaming "Fox! fox! fox!" although it sounds as if he were saying "Caw, caw, caw." In a moment the door of the farmhouse flew open and a man stepped out with a dog at his heels. The man looked up at Blacky, and he knew by Blacky's actions that something-was going on back of the barn. Right away he guessed that there must be a fox there, and calling the dog to follow he ran around to see what was happening. Of course Reddy heard him coming and, with a little snarl of anger at Blacky the Crow, he threw her body over his shoulder and started for the nearby swamp as fast as his legs could take him. Just as Reddy reached the edge of the swamp he heard th£ roar of a great voice behind him. He cnew that Bowser was wise to the .ricks of foxes and that he would lave to use all his cunning to get rid of Bowser. To do it he would have to drop that fat hen he had come so far for. Do you wonder that Roddy was dismayed?
