""When 1 tirst enmo here I haled her. She was Raynor's wife— she had everything that he had long URO promised to me. You can ; imagine what a jilted girl feels to- I ward her successful rival. I came j prepared to hate her—hut I meant I no wrong to her. 1 came hero to get satisfaction of one sort or another out at Douglas Raynor. I wanted to mako him suffer as much as ho had made me suffer. I wanted money, hut I also wanted to make him suffer mentally and physically, both. I gave him the arsenic, in sufficient doses to scaro him and to make him 111— hut I didn't mean to kill him. I I want your honest opinion. Asltlo proposed to stop short of that, from tho facts of Booing Mrs. Ray- Well, then, when Mr. Flnley came, nor fleeing out of tho nun parlor I found I could hurt him by Bug- that night, asldo from any thought of evidence—you would ho surprised to loam that Mrs. Raynor was a criminal." "Very much surprised.- alio Is of tho martyr type. She suffered In iiUencp." "Shu clvca mo that Impression," Zizi said. "Xanc.y Raynor Is a woman who loves very few people.

"Nobody could ho very fond of ihat old maid," Zinl said, in a tone >t pity rather than roproauh. "And it's her own fault—she's so prying and curious. Well, now, Miss Turner, here's another question. Do ••on think Mr. Flnley could have ommlttod that murder?" "Yes, I do," "I thought you were sure It was Mrs. Raynor who shot—" "l'vo told you again and ngaln 1 don't know which one It was! I've thought It over and over—I've pictured out the scene with both of them, and all I enn say Is—It was certainly one of them." "What ubout a man from outside?" "That man from outside Is all very well, it you can find him." Zlil had caught Bight of Pennington Wise walking down tho path and she ran after him. "Wlrero are you going?" she asked as sho caught up with him. "Down to tho Falls," he replied, palling her thin little hand as «h>) pushed H through his bent' arm.

Such reports are received weekly by Traffic Manager Chas. Mlttendorf, and his file shows the car loadings for each week for six years past. These reports < show that the business conditions, while showing a falling off during the first eight months of the present year, have shown a steady Improvement and that for the week ending October 18th, tho loadings reached the highest ever recorded by the railroads. For that week a total of 1,102,338 cars were loaded. The highest record for any previous week was for that ending Sept. 29. 1923 when a total of 1,097,493 cars were loaded. Thus an Increase of 13,874 carloads Is shown over the highest record ever made heretofore. Another Interesting feature <• the fact that with this heavy load, lng there was very little ear shortage shown In »ny section of the country, and that against all of It, there was shown a total surplus ot cars available for loading amounting tp about 100,000, The total, movements of eoal however have been light during all of the late summer and fall months. The mild weather has bad a tendency to make the average householder forget that winter Is grada ally slipping np on us, and In case ot a sudden change with a long spell of snow and sloet it Is going to witness considerable hardship with many people who are neglecting putting In an adequate supply of coal for winter. The traffic department is therefore advising everyone to lay In their coal while tho opportunity for doing BO IS still thero. The great movement of all kinds of freight Is going to be a handicap to the railroads when bad weather does come and such commodities as coal, which are not rated as perishable and take low rates of freight are never given the expedited service that other and high revenue freight Is given.

Lar&bee Flour Mill Corporation HUTCHINSON, KANSAS and $68,000,000 in the first week of October. Construction activity increased very considerably In October, according to F. "W. Dodge Corporation. Contracts last month In the 38 eastern states (which Include about seven-eighths of the total construction ot the country) amounted to $410,090,S00. The increase Is very largely accounted for by a number of, big public works and utilities' projects. In October there is usually a seasonal Increase over September. Last year this increase amounted to 24 per cent. Farm prosperity Is perhaps best reflected in the comparative value of grain crops. The 1924 corn crop representing 24 per cent of our agricultural crop value is worth 3 per cent more than the 1923 harvest. The money value of wheat which makes up 14 per cent of our agricultural output 1B 47 per cent greater than Inst year. The 6 per cent of our harvest represented by oats is worth 44 per cent more than a year ago, while barley, about 1 per cent of our_totaI output, is np 48 per cent In crop value. The farmer Is feeling better by several hundred million dollars. New building, which has enjoyed an unprecedented boom during the last three years, is runlng 4 per cent ahead of the first nine months ot last year, Bank clearings are again tending upward.
