balanced programme, all of which were
well received, with the-muslcal items the
big favorites as was evidenced in the

at ended by a crowd that was altogether
too large for the capacits*; of the schoolroom. The room was nicely decorated
for a Christmas affair with two small

broadcast *with> the" microphone .on the
stage jand_ behind the; pcenes were the
two omcial announcer^ Margaret Bundy
and Joan Heric. '.    \   :
All the numbers were of merit, a few

took the part of the school mistress, and
the pupils of the senior room were the
unruly scholars, and -well they played
their parts. After much chattering and
cross talk the school broke up with a fist
fight between two boys; all the work
having been done was roll call and" history lesson.       *
The double bill of basketball games
drew a large crowd of local and town
fans to the K.K. Klub on Wednesday
evening last Iff the opening game, a
comic feature between the newly-formed
Dynamiters and Pharmacy girls' team of
Creston. The ladies were much aster
but were so handicapped by the weight
and height of their opponents that they
came out on the short end of the 17-12
score. The Wynndel fans got a real
thrill in ths* second fixture when Wynndel Maple Leafs came up from a 12.4
deficit at hall^time to vanquish a tir d
Cardinal quint., 15-14. In th** first half
play was much more even than the score
would indicate, but -Wynndel failed, as
usual, to connect with the basket. In
the second stanza some clever floor play
by Ken. Packman and Joe Martell
the game for Wynndel. Supper
dancing followed the hoop games.

m     OllC* THE   BEvXEw,   UJtCJiiSTON.   J5.   0.  A Word To Yoixtk  -J  "CXNKNS. ARBIMf*  II  l  Many young people enter the new year with feelings of discouragement  and in a state of bewilderment. The future presents itself to them In the  form of a very large question mark. The future always presents Itself in  this form, but, generally speaking, the answer, or at least some of the. answers or a partial answer, has in a sense been possible. But in these times  the riddle of the future seems exceedingly hard to decipher.  Nonetheless it is well within the realm of truth to say that, In large  measure, the final answer is much the same as ft has always been, and it is I  that, apart from changed conditions, it rests with the youth of to-day to  work out their own destinies just as the youth in the ages of the past have  always been called upon to do.  This is not the only era in the world's history when youth has had to  face ar������d contend with changed conditions. This Is, and always has been,  and always will be, a world of change,���������changing from day to dav and from  hour to hour. "New times bring new conditions and new conditions bring  pew tasks and new problems demanding .solution. This is life. Without  such chage there would be no life.  So there is, after all, nothing to affright the youth of to-day; rather  because of the greater changes which recent years have wrought and the  greater complexity of the problems calling for solution, there i3 also a -ereat  challenge to youth and more and greater, rather than fewer and lesser,  opportunities awaiting youth's grasp.  What does youth need to-day as an essential item of equipment to face  the future, surmount the difficulties which lie in the path of the years? and  achieve success? Sir Herbert Barker, tlie celebrated English surgeon, submits an answer.   He says:  What we need to-day among the young men is the spirit of initiative,  the enterprise that takes chances and starts something new.  It is true that economic conditions are bad, but it is when things are at  their worst that men of character rise to meet and challenge life.  To those dispirited young men who have been looking for Jobs without  any set plan, I would say*: Determine first upon an. objective. Know -what  you -want.   Then go out after it.  It sounds easy? But I do not speak without knowing what it means to  struggle against obstacles. I have fought hard from the days -when I sometimes wondered where my next meal was to come from.  The tragedy of such men is that as tbe months of unemployment drift  into years, brains grow dull and character rots.  At the beginning, it is a problem of unemployment; in the end it is the  tragedy of unemployability.  To any such young man, looking at life to-day with jaundiced eyes,  maybe, living at home, or drawing upon kindly relatives for the wherewithal of life,'I wouid say:   End those conditions.  If there is no paid job in the offing, sit down and initiate something���������  anything. Do any work rather than no work, and, for preference, work as  your owu master.  There are as many opportunities to-day as ever there were.   But they  *   are hard to find.   There are rewards for enterprise and resource as dazzling  as ever there were; but the road to them is steeper.  Will these soft sons of sturdy sires bestir themselves, fight up out of  the morass of apathy and lethargic inertia? Or are they, indeed, too soft  in heart and head? I don't like to believe that the thing that pulled us  through the War���������in a word, "guts"���������is a thing of the past.  WHAT DOES YOUR  HANDWRITING REVEAL?

Sweeping in from the Gulf of  Alaska a 55-mlle gale raged for several hours there and at Seward. In  60 hours a total of 12.38 inches of  rain fell.  Meanwhile, inland at Fairbanks,  the spring-like temperature of 58 degrees, the warmest winter days for  the months of November, December,  January, February and March in^the  30 years' history of the weather  bureau, was recorded.  The snow was entirely gone at  Fairbanks, as well as at numerous  other points. The galo lashed heavily at Cordova.

Gallay  of the National Research Council.  The conference was called and presided over by Dr. H. M. Tory, chairman of the National Research 0oun-  cil.  New uses for Canadian potatoes included the making of such, products  as confectioner's glucose, grape  sugar, syrup, starch, potato flour and  potato chips and such other products  as laundry starch, dextrine, glue,  gum, alcohol and foundry moulds,  the preservation and canning of  potatoes; the use of potatoes as food  for livestock.

Is there any -way in -which I can  convince him of the untruth of his  statements? Or what do you advise?"  Here again we have this question  of a marked difference in the ages  of the two concerned. The man is  14 years older than the girl. This is  not so bad, however, because their  relative ages are still young. So  that this age difference in the present case is not an insuperable obstacle. However, the matter of jealousy is a vital one.  This is one of the most insidious  of characteristics. It grows on itself.  This young man has lost his self-  control entirely, and has shown  precious little respect for the girl  he wants to marry, in continually  accusing her of the things he has.

Jealousy is one of those vices  that must be cured before marriage.  The mere ceremony of getting married does not destroy it; rather does  it stimulate it. And a jealous husband is far worse than a jealous  suitor, for a single girl can still give  up the man, whereas once married, a  remedy is difficult���������and only after a  great deal of unhapplness and tribulation.  It seems to me that the man In  question is likely to continue to be  jealous, and I advise my correspondent to give him up, at any rate until  .she is assured that this jealousy is  cured. Better to cut the knot now  than live to rue it later.  Jealousy, unfortunately, la one of  those vices that ��������� is really hard to  cure. And it Is far too great a risk  for my correspondent to take, especially having regard to the difference  in age. She is still young, and it  will not be very difficult for her to  gain new friendships.  K,      #      *  Can tho author help you? Do  you wish to know what your handwriting tells about you?

SAY HOLDING  POLICY WAS BAD  FOR EXPORTERS  Winnipeg. ��������� John 2.

Wm0A  Rumors of the situation and  rumblings in the grain trade were  brought into the open by Mr. McFarland in an interview, -when he de*-  clared exporters had bitterly resented the difficulties they experienced  since early in November because of  the attitude of terminal elevator interests. Unwarranted permiums were  exacted from exporters in order to-  secure cargo for their lake steamer  charters. '"  "Such ^premiums demanded were  not in harmony with the large supplies of high grade, wheat in store  not only -at lakehead terminals but  also in cov&xitv** elevators throughout the west," said Mr. McFarland.  "Wheat was not procurable by exporters at the oflicial closing prices  as quoted for carlot purchases on the  exchange. The premiums complained  of were in addition to such prices  and wheat was not readily available  on many occasions. Difficulty -was  experienced in loading boats.  "Navigation did not close until  Dec. 12, and had wheat been available on a basis of December option  values, many more steamers would  have been chartered and further large  quantities would have been moved to  eastern ports, where it would have  been available for export this winter," Mr. McFarland said.  "I am forced to the conclusion  that December as a contract month  should be abolished. November  should be substituted in place of December. Thus, with October and  November futures opei*ating for hedging purposes, it would provide two  liquid delivery months in the navigation season of the year when the  large fall movement is under way in  place of only October, as now operated."

Irish Citizenship Bill  To   Remove   Any   Suggestion   That  Irish People Are British Subjects  Dublin.���������-Tho Irish Free State's  citizenship bill passed through final  stages In the dail recently. It was  approved by a vote of 51 to 36.  Explaining tho intention of tho bill,  President Eamon de Vaiera said it  aimed at removing frcm Irish law  any suggestion that the Irish were  British subjects. Tho Freo State  cou'd not alter a British net, he said,  but if the British would remove from  their statute tlie suggest'on that persons In the Free State were claimed  as British subjects the Free Stato  v-fould welcome the step.  This apparently was .a conciliatory  step taken by De Vaiera to avoid  arousing undue antagonism in Britain ovor passage of tho bill. Dominions Secretary J. H. Thomas told  tho House of Commons somo days  ago. he had been advised on tho highest legal authority tho Irish bill could  not deprvlo any person of hla status  as a citizen of tlio British commonwealth.  mwmmMmmmmmmmm.

New Wage Agreement  Per  Railway   Workers   Get   Three  Cent. Of Pay Cut Restored  Montreal.���������Canada's 100,000 railway workers and their families will  spend a merry Christmas in anticipation of the fact that from the first  day of the new year they will have  restored to them three per cent, of  the 15 per cent, pay cut previously  made, and from May 1, 1935, they  will have two per cent, more returned to thom, bringing tlie deduction  to 10 per cent.  An agreement to this effect was  reached some weeks ago between the.  managements of Canada's railways  and the officers of the running trades'  brotherhoods. An announcement was  made by J. McGulro, general chairman of tho Canadian Brotherhood of  Railroad employees, whose 12,000  members Include many miscellaneous  classifications and workers, tliat a  similar agreement to that of tho  running trades has been signed.  It Is understood at tho same time  the executives of the Canadian Pacific  and Canadian National Railways have  decided to extend tho provisions of  these agreements to several thousand oflice workers and other unorganized  employees.

Dominion      Meteorological      Service  Gives "Data "Daily And Monthly  The  "Dominion Meteorological Service is desirous of assisting agriculture.  Dr.  J.  Patterson,   of  Toronto,  Chief of the Service, told the Conference of Dpminion Entomologists recently assembled at Ottawa.    In his  address he ouUihed the nature of the  data his  service  compiles  daily and  monthly for the use of agriculture,  navigation, airways and other national   enterprises.     Dr.   Patterson   emphasized the relation of weather forecasts to  agriculture   generally   and  particularly in regard to  the  study  of insects and diseases affecting field  crops.    In the discussion that follow^  ed ii was urged by several of the entomologists  that  the  service   of  an  agricultural meteorologist, who could  devote all bis time to the study of  weather in its relation to agriculture  was of paramount importance.    Dr.  Patterson agreed, and admitted that  if the necessary funds could be provided he would be very pleased  to  have his service enlarged in this way.

Must Register Stores  Irish  To  j    FASHION FANCIES-]  Little Journeys In Science  FERTIIjIZERS  (By Gordon H.'Guest, M.A.)  Plants take carbon dioxide and a  sim aU quantity of oxygen from the  air, but otherwise they depend largely on the soil for nourishment. Mineral matter and organic matter are  the chief plant foods contained In the  soil, and because they are being continually drawn upon by the growing  plants, it Is necessary that they be  replaced frcm time to time.  This process is known as fertilizing  the soil, and the three chief substances used are: Phosphates of calcium, nitrogeneous matter, and com-  potinds of potassium.  The phosphates of calcium come  chiefly from rock phosphates, 70%  of which are composed of phosphates  of calcium. These rocks are ground  up and treated with sulphuric acid  before being suitable to be used as  fertilizers. Ground-up bone Is another source of calcium phosphates,  and in addition it contains nitrogen,  giving it added value. However, thc  supply Is not sufficient to meet the  demand and so the rock phosphate  remains the chief source of the product. "Slags" which appear in tho  production of steel are a further  source of phosphates and are used for  the soil.  Tbo nitrogeneous matter is obtained from various chemicals containing nitrogen and from decomposed animal matter. Nitrogen lo alao  put into the soil by tho production  of legume plants (alfalfa, boans and  peas) which return nitrogen to tho  earth.  Potassium compounds aro found in  natural deposits ln Franco and Germany, but arc rare on this continent.  Moul commercial fertilizers uro a  blond of thoso three aubHtancos, tho  proportions varying according to tho  needs bf tho soil, and tlio nature of  the crop. Wheat and othor cereal  tsropM need a soil rich in phosphates,  while > potatoes require moro pota*"������  ���������lum.;!  Free    State    Is    Trying  Protect Owners  All retailers in the Irish Free  State will be compelled to register  their places of business if the recommendations of the Free State Commission on Shops are adopted. The  general registration of all stores is  recommended to prevent the undue  multiplication of retailers, to facilitate control in the public interest,  and to protect the owners themselves.  A feature of Irish retail trade is the  Travelling Shop. These shops are  motor vehicles which travel about the  country bring to the farmhouses  domestic requisites, and at the same  time purchasing from farmers their  gcrtra and butter. Thess shops pay  no taxes and can select the places  where custom is best, leaving to fixed  places of business only the dullest  days to make profits out of which  rent, taxes, and wages have to be  paid. Therefore the travelling shop,  it is urged, should alsq be registered.  Science does not yet definitely  know how the craters, planins, and  mountains on the moon were formed.  jb������xpianations And Comments  The Victory of Faith, verses 1-5.  Faith in Jesus as the Christ la the  sign of the birth from God;, and  p������.o-*v one who loves God loves the  children of God. Love to God and  love to the brethren go together.  When we love God and do his commandments���������when our love of God Is  o*enuine ��������� then our love of our  brethren is genuine also. Each���������love  to God and love to the children of  God���������is the test of the other. The  keeping of God's commandments is  the proof of love to God. And his  commandments are not difficult.  "This ��������� indispensable -thing in religion is obedience. Some seem to  think that the seat of religion is in  the imagination. It is in their slight  wholly sesthetical, the poetry of life.  Others argue as If good .and beneficent affections constituted virtue.  Others, as if the whole duty of man  was a round of ecclesiastical ceremonies. But, as Vinet writes: "Obedience alone constitutes moral good. It  has not pleased God to be worshipped without being obeyed. Religion  is always a law and a prohibition.'  'Walk', 'keep', 'do'. We have not to  sound depths of mystery, but to do  as we are bid." (W. *L. Watkinson).  For whatsoever is begotten of God  overcometh the world. The "world",  as used by John, stands for all that  is opposed to love. He who is born  of Gcd has within himself the power  to win the victory over all selfishness, lawlessness, evil. What, then,  i is this being born of God? This is  the victory that overcometh the  world, even our faith. And who is he  that overcometh the -world, but he  that believeth that Jesus is the  Christ? -^  "In the radical change that transforms one who has surrendered himself to Jesus Christ comes the implanting of faith, the faith, which is  not merely the mind's belief, but the  handing over of the whole man In  love and trust."

Beef On The Christmas Sideboard  Beef Provides A Welcome Variety To  The Meisu at T-ale-t-Sde "  While turkey may be regarded as  the piece de resistance of Christmas  dinners in Canadian homes, it is not  necessarily the only meat which, can  be provided.    For example   there   is  ���������beef���������graded beef. Probably no other  food is more attractive to the appetite of man than   a   good   piece of  beef with its enticing aroma, its delicious flavour and its highly appetiz-  ing appearance.    As roast o* steak,  or in some of the many varied forma  in which it can be, served, beef will  provide a welcome varieiy uUrlng? txid  Christmas    festivities,    and    find    a  handy place on the sideboard or In  reserve In the pantry or refrigerator.  "- But the popularity of beef has a  much deeper foundation than simply  its appeal to the palate.   Recent experiments and research have  shown  that man's natural fondness for meat  Is based upon sound scientific grounds  au a body builder and as an aid to  digestion   when   eaten   with   cereals  and vegetables., In no other country  ������**in better   beef   be   found than in  Canada.      Beef    graded    under    the  supervision of the Dominion Department of Agricluture is guaranteed as  to quality   and   wholesomeness,  tho  "Choice"* or red brand,  representing  the finest quality, and tho "Good", a  flno grade that carries the moderate  amount of fat necessary to protect  tlio beef in handling and cooking, and  render It tender, Juicy, and of good  flavour.    Over ono hundred different  rocipos for cooking meat are given  ih tho bulletin on beef and how to  oiiQoso and cook   It,   Issued   by   tho  dominion Department of Agriculture  Milch also publishes a beef chart of  tho retail and  wholesale   beef   outs,  and diagramrof cutting.

I believe a good  ���������one If I had come back and told  what I saw, ��������� hell would have broken  loose and no good could have come  ���������of it; I tell you, you've got to have  the evidence printed cut and bound  In calf-skin to land that mah Dustin  where he belongs.

I'm like that fightin' man  that Sir Walter Scott wrote a book  about���������Henry of the Wynd. I'm  fightin' for my own hand. Let me  alone a bit, Crewe, and HI come  clean."  Crewe eyed him keenly.  "I'll do just that," he said.    J������You  were    talkin'   about   findin'   two   of  Dustin's  men   up   Red Water way.  Tell me what you saw.   ..."  Stone told him at length and, when  he told how he made Gray and Corse  cut the mesquite branches and flog  each other, old Crewe, who had a  sense of humor, roared with laughter  till he was helpless. Suddenly he  stopped laughing, wiped his eyes and  sat up.  "You'd have saved time an' trouble  If you'd shot 'em risrht then," he said.  "Of course you realize that it'll come  to that. They'll lay for you in such a  way that you'll have to do some  shootin' in self-defense. . . . Only  they'll make it look like it ain't self-  defense Why didn't you make just  one flog the other? Then it'd have  been a mutual killin* bee?"  "I didn't think of It," said Stone  frankly. 4T was so damn~ eager to  see Dustin's men punish each other  that I didn't think of it. Think we'd  better tell Mr. Carr?"  "No. . . ."Crewe shook his head.  "We're in a, bad enough? mess as it  stands. *Tm manager. Ill handle it.'  Carr would only go on -the prod. He'd  shoot Dustin, and whoever shoots  Dustin it mustn't be Carr. "We've got  Edith to think of."  Stone realized In a flash that since  he had come to the Hour-glass there  had been few moments, sleeping or  ' waking, in which he had not been  thinking of Edith, but he could - not  say that to Frank Crewe. He nodded  and rolled a cigarette thoughtfully.  "���������Let the other side do the talkin*,"  -went on Crewe. "The man who talks  most has got least excuse for what  happens."  He rose, pocketed his pipe and  strolled into the house, and Stone  went off to the bunk-house where he  was greeted with "a shower of hot  words. Lee, who had been sent to  stralgten up the stables, came back  incensed.  "Your darned saddle was all over  the place, Duro," he said. "I shifted  it to another peg." Ho whispered  something to Baines that'made him  look askance at Stone and presently  a roar from the ranch-house brought  him to the door. It was' Crewe  shouting for him.  "You, Stone," ho shouted. "Mr.  Carr wants to see you right away."  Stono stormed up tho steps. Crewe  met him with a grave face and  motioned to a chair "while old Carr  frotted and fumed across the desk.  "Sit down, Stone. . . ." Carr  eyed him balofully for a moment.  Then: "1 took you on my pay roll on  trust," he said. "I didn't know a  damned thing about you. I didn't  ask for reference*-*. Look at this, . ,"  He flung on tho table the little rod  notebook that Stono had picked up  after Corso and Gray had thoir sot-  to. Stone took it and examined It  carefully. Ho know It had been in  his saddle-bags two hours before. It  ought to be there now. But what did  this coll moan about a notebook that  didn't oven bolong to him? Carr  wont on and talked himself Into  wrath as mon do.  "Loo shifted your saddle-bags tonight and that book foil out," he said.  "Whore'd you get it?'!  "It belongs to old man Kano .  .  ."  began Stone.  "I know .that.   I know, too, that  ' 1 _1IIMI_.IIU 11II III fHIII-I'lHII.

If  you run with Kane, you can't trail  with us. What have you got to do  with'" Dustin of# the Broken Spur?  Have you lied to me?"  "You see, Stone," said Crewe  amicably, "we know old Kane. He's  a harmless old desert rat who's been  tryin* to make a livin' in the hills for  twenty years. The only thing against  him is that he's been mixed up with  Dustin. If you're mixed up with  Kane ������������ .   ."  "Wait a minute. I'll show you just  how much I'm mixed up wtih Kane  and Dustin." Stone thrust a hand into  his pocket, pulled out an envelope and  flung it before Carr. The old ranchman opened it and read and his eyes  bulged.  "By God," he said sharply. "This*  letter Is to me from my partner,  Gerald .Keene. . . . Where'd you get  this?" he demanded sharply. "If you  had this letter of introduction from  my parnter, why didn't you give it  to me before this?"  "It's a letter recommending me for  a job," said Stone coolly. "I got the  job so I didn't need the letter. If  you'd refused me the job, Td have  given you the letter."  "We've been tryin' for a long time  to find young Keene," said Carr. "We  haven't been able to get his address.  Can you give it to us?"  "Yes. I can tell you where to  reach him. I will do better than that.  I'll send him a wire that'll bring him  here sure.   In fact 7  7 .",..  Stone stopped short of disclosure.  Something might yet turn up that  would make that disclosure premature. Better wait till the very last.  It could always be done. He felt, too,  that Edith might feel that he was a  spy in their camp. He turned to  Crewe.  "I'd like it ���������understood,''* he said.  "I've talked more to you than I have  to Mr. Garr or even to Miss Edith. I  found that notebook up in Red Water  canyon. I have never laid eyes on  old man Kane and I don't know; a  thing about him. If he's a partner of  Dustin, that damns him with me. You  both know how I stand with Dustin.  tables were running full-blast and a  score of men lined up at the bar  nodded greeting. At the far end of  the bar Stone saw .three men whom  he knew"* as Broken Spur riders.  Corse stood between two others and  his eyes lit redly at sight of Stone.  Behind Corse, "Dustin stood toying  with an empty glass. Neither man  gave any sign of recognition and  that itself" was a warning to Stone.  He glanced once at Dustin and then  furtively scanned Corse in the big  bar mirror. He could see how carefully Corse was studying him and  listening to Dustin, who was speaking without moving his lips. Corse's  little pig's-eyes focused on his "boss"  and he was listening intently. Just  behind him" stood the faro table  where the dealer in his high seat  ruffled is cards, and Mary Wilson,  who kept ca-.es for him, studied the  scene before her. From time to time  her eyes swept the room but always  came back to Corse and Dustin,  Mary was an innovation in Seco.  ���������For more than six months she had  held her job, tending cases at that  faro table for Holly, who owned the  table and paid a ten per cent, commission to the house. She was more  than merely pretty and no word of  scandal had ever attached to her till  Dustin picked her out as an object  for his attentions. From that day  tongues had been busy with her name  till all Seco knew her as "Dustin's  girl."-" 7. 7?_.-.- ���������   ���������  She resented it bitterly. Not openly, because she supported can old  mother on her scanty earnings. She  dared not quarrel" with that job till  a better one should offer and none  would offer as long as she was at I  that faro table. Sam Dustin had got  her talked about; Sam Dustin had,  by hia questionable attentions, made  it impossible for her to get any other  place and she hated him with the  keen feelnig one can have in private  but cannot show openly. She knew  of Duro Stone by talk only. From  time to time jokes, flung by the  Broken Spur men, came to her and  she wondered what the man was like.

"Crewe'll ride with you."  In ten minutes Stone was back  with the horses and they took the  trail at a gallop that ate up the  miles.

Instinctively she knew  the cause to be Edith. The moment  she saw Dustin and Corse at one end  of the bar and Stone and Crewe at  the other she was sure trouble was  at band.  Her quick eyes caught .a covert  movement of Dustin's hand. She  saw the eyes of both men focused on  Stone and the unwinking stare with  which Dustin regarded, him. She  knew what it meant and she meant  to warn Stone, whom ehe knew not  The next moment hell broke loose  in the Silver Dollar.  For ten minutes, "Dustin, clawing  wildly for Stone's eyes, was rocketed  about the place. ' For ten wild minutes the faro table spun down the  room on two legs and settled on its  side atop of two mild-mannered gentlemen who fired indiscriminately at  the crowd from under it. For full  eight minutes the..bartender kept up  a barrage of bottles to cover his own  retreat.    At tbe77end  of  that   time  at all.    A quick flip of   her   pretty | CrewsT who   knew   nothing   of   the  for him to take his own personality  but . ��������� ��������� there was very little on  which to base a charge against Dustin. Sam Dustin was known throughout the valley. Men, even those who  did -not like him, would rather  espouse .his cause than that of a  stranger. Carr, by fencing Soda  Springs, had alienated much of the  affection he formerly commanded.  No. Decidedly this was no time to  drop his disguise. Let them think he  was Duro Stone till Gerald Keene  should come.  "It's a mighty poor day for any  Hour-glass people to be in Seco, I'm  thinkin'. . _." Crewe jerked a finger  toward the Silver Dollar saloon,  whero Stone recognized some of the  Broken Spur men. "It's pay day on  the Broken Spur," said Crewe. "If  you meet up with any of 'em you  look to your shoolnV They'll make  any excuse for a scrap. First we'll  go to tho telegraph office."  At tho office Hoskins, tho operator,  grinned feebly as Stone wrote his  message and slid It across the counter. "That message simply said:  "Come at once.

I'll bo at .the Silver Dollar  saloon, I'll bo sober, too/' Stone  grinned, pocketed his change and  strode over toward the Sllvor Dollar  with Crewe following him.  Ihe Silver Dollar was tho biggest?  and the worst-roputod In Seco and  that night it was running full-blast.  Thoy thrust into tlio crowdod t������ar-  rooin and realized at once t^iat It was  pay day, not only for the Broken  Spur but for a hnlf-dos*en othorfl of  the ranches aboy������ the valley.

That counter, 7 used to "copper"  bets, could come from only one place.  He looked at the case keeper. A quick  backward riod of her pretty head to-  warx*T Dustin and Corse won a nod  of thanks from him and she sank  back on her high stool with a little  sigh of thanks. She had warned him  at least. ^  But outwardly Stone gave no sign.  Crewe, talking to Benton, a stockman from Amargo, saw nothing and  Stone never depended on others for  what ho could do for himself. He  relaxed every muscle and waited for  what was to come with eyes fixed  carelessly on tho long mirror behind  the bar. In that mirror he saw Dustin fumble under his left arm and  hand something to Corse, who slipped  a full hand Into his coat-pocket and  slouched forward to the bar, where  Stone lounged across the edge.  Duro cast one covert glance at  Corse and tilted the whisky bottle  till hla glass was brimful and stood  toying with it. The next moment  Corse stumbled up against him and  deliberately drove an olbow into his  ribs and thrust him aside. A man,  seeing tlie intent in Corse's eyea,  gave back with an oath. Corse meant  to drive Stone to go for his gun.  Corse would! shoot and it would be a  plain case of self-dcfenso. But Stono  did no such thing.  Ho reeled back from the vicious  thrust that nearly caved In his ribs  and the next moment the contents of  that full glass, whisky so potent that  It was saidto "make a rabbit ittplt in  ia bull-dog'fl fdee," Wari flung Into  Corse's eyes.
