Wilkersou licked bis dry lips. Tbe l>.nttle was on.,He broke the silence by saying gruffly. "Cnll 'em up here. Kill!" I Nothing loath, Tubbs went out on the porch, and bis hoarse tones 10- iounded through the little valley. In- itantly men aiti)eared from doorways, came from a dozen places In response lo that call. .\nd wouicn. clutching their children, peeiwl out t <i see what was in the air. When tlic- iiieu were gathered Iwfore dim Wllkerson ste;)ped forward .-ind commenced to si»eak.- He could not break their sullen silencv. and. after a few words of generalities, he mustered bis courage and shouted: "1 am the owner of this inluo: I have the deeds'! right here!"' The effect of this was 'far other than he had expected. .Not a murmur came from the still, motionless throng:.; It was as if they had not heard blm. In a lower tone he repeated It. "'I am the owner of the "Master Key' mineand all that goes with it.'" He held up the papers, and Bill Tubbs looked at them and gravely nodded bis bead, us much as to say that be bad inspected them and could vouch for their authenticity. Still.no sound from the miners. •. ' ' There is a quality in the silence of the crowd of earnest men that is more questioning than any word could be. The men who bad worked and tolled for old Tom Gallon, who had been deceived and bafiled; who had had their loyalty• tested to the utmost, now demanded through their imperious sl- It^nce that Wllkerson open np bis mind to them, if be. was iiidcrd the owner of tbe •"Muster Key," what did he Intend to do? "•You"d better say some more quickly," warned Drake in a low tone. And Wllkerson. com|ileteIy bewildered, set the match to the |>owder. He stepiied forward with as ugly a look aS be could assume and cried. '"Now tell me 'what you want'r" Instantl.v the air was filled w'tn rears ot race and disuiipoiutment Fifteen minutes later Harry Wllker­ son was sweating within the cabin. With a shakiitg iiand he ()oured btm- .self out a tumbler of Tubbs" whisky. Be bad. promised ihe mioen' back pay, steady work, full wages and food. He must make good, and he did not know how. "Tubbs." he said sharply, ••you must find out what men we can trust. Say nothing, but get all the Information you can. Ill make It worth the while of the men who'll stlclf by me." Again the engineer chuckled fatnons- ly. ••They'll all stick by ye," he said sagely, "sloiig as ye-f»ay 'em like you said .ve would." , It was late in the nfternobn when Tom Kane a[>i>eared on.the mail wagon. The driver bad already Informed him of how affairs were going, and the cook wasted no time. He climbed down from tlie high sent. Jerked his battered case out of the'w.agon and made straight for bis sbaiity. Within five minutes he bad divested himself of his black clothj-s and| donned U.'o official overalls and aprou.- Then he appeared on th« jwrch as calm and unconcerned as though he bad not been away. In no time ut all n <-ou|>le of dozen miners bad gathered to shake hands and swap news. .Vatunilly their biggest Item was Wilkerson's proclamation of ownership. . .At this Tom Kane laughed scornfully. He derided the pa(>ers. ridiculed the miners for l^eing fools easily taken In and siateil in set terms: that be. Tom Kane, actually held tbe placarof authorit.v. , This soon liime to Wilkers/Hi's ears, and he hurried down tbe hilt to stop »-b«t In- ktit^- to l»e JI dangenms aei'ex- 3 "u. In^^fiiflS" old ivok Ipcked boma \rltb poobpoobedf him to bis face, called htm names of peculiar virulence and offered to Hght him ou any term*. Before long the camp was In ni» uproar, and it was due to certain cooler beads that trouble did not ensue Immediately. These .men Insisted that there was time to settle the dispute of ownership, forced Wllkerson to withdraw bis command that Kane leave the mine Instantly and managed to bring a semblance of peace out of disorder.. Kane bowed bis neck to tbe yoke of.tbelr authority, but dispatched a trusty messenger to tlie station with , a telegram to John to come us soon ds possible. Wllkerson resorted to a scene which was eventually to threaten the very existence of the "Master Key." He sent Drake south to confer witii a desperado irbom he knew, who could gather n band of Mexicans like himself on short notice, ready for anything that promised loot. "Tell .lose to be here tomorrow night," he' Instructed him. •Til want about twenty men well armed." Drake rode away as from destruction, cursing the tuck that liad put him In tbe power of such a man. lu response to Kane's message .lohn Dorr. Ruth tiallun and Everett l«ft Beverly Hills for Sileut Valley. They arrived the third day after the cook, and from tbe moment they were recognized tbe miners dropped their attitude of sulky waiting and thronged abont their mistress, cheering and shaking hands. When they bad got Into tbe big house Kane arrived, apron and all. to report on the situation. "It's come to a showdown," he remarked. "Wiikerson has several of the worthless ; fellows here and a lot of half breeds hack In tbe bills. He knows 1 hnve that money of yours, and he's promised it to tlie Mexicans if they help lilm. Von see. Wnikerson wllj keep bis -skirts clejir that way. He can say that It was a raid by bandits." "How soon does all this happen?" drawled John. Kane glanced at liini ciirinusly. He understood that warning nut to frighten Kiitli and went 011 aiiily, ••Oh. 1 reckon Just as soon as Wllkei-son gets Tubbs weaned from ihal bottle of his." But when ituth bad gone to her own rooms the fuok wasted ni» words in* smoothing things over. •"You've got to act and act quick," he told .lohn .iiid Kverett. 'It aln^t tbe time for fooling. Tonight may do the business, for those -Mexicans are impatient. Uenieml>ej^tliat Wilkereon has tile keys to the powder lioiwe, and he has all kinds of chance to lay liLs traps." . , •"I" don 't think he e.vi)e;cted us so soon." John remarkwl. "A good ciwk. always has gi^ub fo .r people that drop in nneX |>ected like." was the grim response. ".Inst take n peek down there now.^' Through the window .lohn saw that the-camp-was quietly but surely dividing Into two iiarties. Tbe elder miners were gathered about the cook shanjy. .\ronnil the office stood a dozen or so nialrontents half dnmk. under the leadei-ship of Tubbs. who ^as wholly drunk, and on tbe porch talking to Wiikerson were a couple of Mexicans. ••It looks as if they meant to rush the camp." Dorr said thoughtfully. He proceeded to arm him.self. and Everett quietly followetl suit. •Tm going to talk to the b<»ys first.:' said Dorr. He left the bunpilow and strode off down: the hill. followi>d by the cook. A giiii was firetl up by the mine timnel luouUi. \ ••Tbal'.x a signal that tlj'e Mexicans jUre making troulile:" Kane shoute<l. '•'Look out for dynamite' in tlie shaft, JobnT' Without a word further Dorr leaped down from the porch of the cook shanty ;ind started n|> tbe hill, followed by a dozen faithful supporters. Other shots were fired. Wilkersou appeared at the tunnel month :iud then vanished Inside. John sprang u|ion the trestle and nished after him. Instantly a band of Mexicans materialized halfway down the liill, fired a few shots and retreated. John paid no attention tu them, hut kept on. . Once within tlie tiinuW he saw a fall t gleam of light ahead of him. H,e understood that Kane WHS right. Wll­ kerson was playing a desi>erate game in blowing U|i tbe shaft and then in tbe-ensulng confnslun iilldwlng the bandits to loot undisturbed. A few yards farther on John stopped. A dark figure rushed by bim toward the open air. But the little glow of light remained, i -'or n moment Dorr hesitated: then he leaped forward and began trying to extinguish a lighted fuse: He had almost Ku<veeded when a bullet whizzed by hlni; then a second spattered 011 the rock overhead. He turned and fired blindly in the direction of the shots aiiit resumed his task. The fuse was .short. but he sn <-ceeded In extinguishing it and started back. He met a fusillade of bullets. He dashed toward the mouth of the tunnel and suddenly emerged on Wll­ kerson. who. not being alV to see Into the murk of tbe sliaft. wan firing blindly into the ofiening.; With a shout John lea |H >d for tbe im.'iu whoui he now );new to. lie seeking his life.

EtiectUe .Syslfro of Riinil Creiits is Needed, .Hiinhattan Man ' Declares. Manhattan, Kas., Feb. 26—\"early 66 per cent of Kansas wheat fa rmers sold at least part of thelv last season's crops direct from the thres.her ani about 10 per cent their entire crop, accordlnsr to data obtained by E. D. Baker, assistant processor cf economics in the Kansas State Agricnltural College, in an investigation of wheat marketing in the Ptate. Mr. Baker has 244 detailed statemt^nts from typical farmers living in all parts of the Kansas wheat region. Professor ^ak- er bolieve.s that under ordinary circumstances and even larger proportion of tbe crop is sold direct from the threslier. Because of the heavy crop of 1S14, it was in many cases found impossible to get threshers promptly, much threshing was, therefore, done after the war had broken out and prices were rising. Consequently, many farmers made an effort to hold as much wheat as possible. "fhat an effective s^teni of rural credits Js needed is inalcated., in Mr. Baker's opinion by the relatively large number of farmers who said lack of money or credit was their reason for selling their wheat Immediately. Of the 244 who made statements, 72 gave this as a reason. Lack of storage facilities was mentioned by 50 as a reason for early selling. "The proportion of cases in which this would be a reason would be reduced, Mr. Baker feels, in an ordinar.v season which would not ta.\ so greatly the capacity of gralnaries. Among other causes for selling wheat direct from the thresher were a reasonable price at threshing time, mentioned by l.'i farmers; belief that early sowing Is ]the best policy is a rule, stated by 14; the fact that early soling is le.ss trouble, stated by 7! rented land, mentioned by 6; and damaged grain, mentioned by Ti. , ; Profe8 .sor Tiakcr )ius further data on the Kansas wheat marketing situation which he is now engaged in tabulating. lie sent out questionnaires to farmers, grain dealers, and millers, covering such matters as tlie harvesting of wheat, the cost of producing wheat, methods of purchase, grain sales, problems of storage, and problems of selling. The investigation will be extended by Professor Baker into other farm crop-s especially those in which marketing problems are important. He is working in co -operation wltli the ag- ificultural experiment station and the extension division. Practically no work of this character has been pre- viimsly undertaken by any agricultural college. the Other's agility and lithe quickness seemed about to win when John by a siidden unexpected and desperate ina- neuver ca\ight him and thresv lilra clear into the air. breaking his clutch with n terrific blow-. Then he. Jerked him to the edge of the trestle and flung blm over. Standing erect John drew the air into his tortured -iungs and let out a tremendous .veil of triumph.

ItOSES LURE GOAT FROM CANS Row Results, Police Called In, and Angora Is Ordered to Keep Off the Lawn. Atlanta.—Red roses and their appeal to the appetite of an angora goat have kicked up a neighborhood row which the police have been called In to arbitrate. , The roses bud on the lawn of John Cunningiiam'a home. No. 33 Colquitt avenue. Tlie goat, the property of a neighbor, is supposed to browse in a nearby pasture; but, according to Mr. Ouhniiigham, this is mere supposition. He complains that for the past three weeks tlie goat has wandered off the farm and, lured by crimson buds, has wrought havoc on the Cunningham lawii. Ha declares the goat has developed an J appetite for the flowers which results in the mastication of six or seven roses a day. Mr. Cunningham could stand it no longer. The police station was called and an officer who investigated issued orders that hereafter the goat must confine -his meals to his own grass and tin cans.

London.—It looks as though there would be a revival ol the hirsute fashion of the. days of the Crimean war. There Is some disquiet in correct military circles over the tendency of some subalterns to acquire short side whiskers after the pattern of butlers on the stage. This Is regarded as an insidious feeler toward the full-blown side whiskers of Crimean days. The very suggestion has caused Frank Richardson to "burst out into at least six abusive synonyms. The mustache cultivated recently by the military, has been for some time of the toothbrush or bristle variety. Tlie new fashion, of which the London streets Just now offer many distress. Ing exaiQples. is to abbreviate the toothbrush on the upper lip tintil It Is no more than a square bristly patch under the nose. Has Portrait Paiijted.
