Previously his barn was burned, a valuable horse and cov,- were shot and killed and he was shot through the boot with a. r i f l e . Not once has he seen his mysterious enemy and he has never f o u n d a clue to his identity. Several threaten- r , letters received by him with signature, were t u r n e d over to the authorities but t h e y failed to learn the I d e n t i t y of thd writer. The last letter rpr.eivert by him advised him to send his w i f e back to her home in E d i n h u r g and If it was necessary for him to have a housekeeper to get his wife's sister.

First it was his barn, then his wood shed and Lord fears it will be his house next. N ON' VACATION. Henry A.
