Collins had come from Raleigh on
the evening train, and ho had solemn-
ly assured Ardmore that the present

hausted all his professional resources,
and the North Carolina newspapers of

"Well, he may be. Osborne," re-

Ardmore, Collins, and Cooke rode
rapidly away through the wide gate*
of the estate along the Sapphire road,

They drew rein nnd waited, the
Tuick patter of hoofs ringing out
sharply in the still night. The moon
light gave them a fair sweep of the
road, and thiy at once saw a horse-
man galloping rapidly toward them.
"I/Ordy, the man's on lire!" gasped
"By George, you're right!" mutter-
ed Collins, moving nervously in his
saddle. "It's a human sunburst."
"It's only his gold braid," explained
the practical Cooke,
Seeing three men drawn across the
road, the horseman began to chock
his li ght.
"Men!" he shouted, as his horse
pawed the air with its forefeet, "is
this Hie road to Ardsley?"
"Right you are," yelled Cooke, and
'hey ware aware of a (lash, a glitter
that startled nnd dazzled the eye, and
Col Rutherford Gillingwater thunder
The y rode on and saw presently the
lights of camp-fires, and a little later
wt re ceremoniously halted at tho road
side by an armed guard. "
M had been arranged that Collins,
who lutd once been a second lieuten-
ant in the Georgia militia, .should be
presented as an officer of the regular
army, detailed as special aide tu Gov'
Dangerfield during the encampment,
and that In case Gilllngwater failed to
return promptly he should cake com-
mand of tho North Carolina forces.
An open Peld had been seized for
the night's camp, and the tents al-
ready shone white in the moonlight.
The three men Introduced themselves
to the militia officers, and Collins ex-
pressed their regret that the/ had
missed the adjutant general.
"Gov. Dangerfield wished you to
move your force on to Ardsley should
we fall to meet Col. Gillingwater; and
you had hi tter strike your tents and
be in readiness to advance in case he
doesn't personally return with orders."
( apt Collins as he had designated
himself, apologized for not being in

ed, "and Gov. Dangerfield Is so anx-

"Applewelght!" exclaimed the group
of officers in amazement.
"N'one utlier than the great Apple-

governor has him in his own hands
at last, and is going to carry him

Carolina bnstile, as a little pleasantry
on the governor of South Carolina."

formed camp, and then turned their
attention to the entertainment of t'.ieir
guests. Ardmore kept track of the
time, and promptly at ten o'clock Col-
lins rose from the log by the roadside
w here they had been sitting
"We must obey the governor's or-
ders, gentlemen," said Collins courte-
ously, "and march at once to Ardsley.
I, you tindei '. r.'l ;i: ■ v a eiairier,
and your guest for the present "
"If you ph ' ■ .i-li'il Cooke, when
the line had begun to move forward,
"what Is that wagon over there?"
He pointed to a mule team hitched
to a quartermaster's wagon that a
negro was driving into po itlon across
the rough field. It was plied high
with luggage, a pyramid that rose
black against the heavens. One of
the militia officers, evidently greatly
annoyed, bawled to the driver to get
bark out of the way.
"Pardon me." said Collins politely,
"but is that your personal baggage,
"That belongs to Col Gilllngwater,"
remarked the quartermaster. "Tho
rest of us have a suit-case apiece." •
The pyramidal baggage wagon had
gained the road behind them, and lin-
gered uncertainly, with the driver
asleep and waiting for orders. The
conspirators were about to gallop for-
ward to the head of the moving col-
umn, when Collins pointed across the
abandoned camp-ground to where a
horseman, who had evidently made a
wide detour of the advancing column,
rode.madly toward the baggage wagon
"The gentleman's trying to kill Ins
horse, 1 should judge," murmured Ard-
more. "By Jove!"
"It's Gilllngwater!" chorused the

They threw their reins to the driver
of the wagon, who had been brushed
from his seat by the Impatient adju

and boxes, was dashing forward. Gil

The road dipped down Into the shad-
dow of a deep cut, where the moon's
rays but feebly penetrated, and where
the flow of springs had softened Ine
surjace; but the pursuers were led on
by the rumble of the wagon, which
swung from side to sUle perilously,
the boxes swinging about noisily and
toppling threateningly at the apex.
Down the sharp declivity the wagon
plunged like a ship bound for the bot-
tom of the sea
The pursuers bent gamely to their
task In the rough road, with Cooke
slightly In the lead. Suddenly ho
shouted warnlngly to the others, as
something rose' darkly above them
like a black cloti^ and a trunk fell
with a mighty crash only a few feet
ahead of them The top had been
shaken off In the fall, an.! Into It head

"There's another coming!" yelled
Collins, nnd a much larger trunk
struck and split upon a rock at tha
roadside Clothing of many kinds
strewed the highwnv. A pair of trou-
sers, flung fiercely into the air. caught
on the limb of a tree, shook free like
a banner, and hung there somberly
etched against the stars.
Ardmore crawled out of the trunk,
sch'.-.ming with delight The fra-
grance of toilet water broke freshly
upon the air.
"it's his ammunition!" bawled Ard-
more, rubbing his head where he had
struck the edge of a tray. "His scent
bottles are smashed, and It's only by
the grace of Providence that 1 haven't
cut myself on broken glass."
They went down the road, stum- 1
bllng now and then over a bit of
debris from the vanished wagon.
"It's like walking on carpet," ob-
surved Cooke, picking up a feather d
cnapeau. "I dldnt know there were
so iWny clothes in all the world."
They abandoned the idea or farther
pursuit on reaching a trunk standing

Southern Gold and Southern Cotton.
Before 18-19 the south furnished the
chief gold fields of the country, but
since that date the south has not been
in the running This section has been
outclassed by California, by Colorado,
by Nevada, and last but not least by
Alaska. In the last fiscal year Alabama
produced gold to the value of $-11,200
find silver to the value of $200. This
state was outranked in gold produc-
tion in order by North Carolina,
Georgia, ami South Carolina, hut
no one of them turned out enough
gold to make the round figure of $100,•
000. Tlie entire production of gold in
the south In the last year was $2ati.-
400 and $273,000 In silver. Nearly all
t li ■ r
It is pretti plain that \lab.ima and
nil tlie lest of the south can get more
gold out of the soil via the cotton boll
than it can dig out in the gold mines
proper. The climate and the soil can
ill that wiij be coined into gold. Th
method Is a trifle more circuitous, but
It yields tu cotton alone more money
nine times over than do all the t . d
fields In the country, for the total
yield of gold In the last fiscal year
In this country was but $94,560,000.—

State Plans Exhibits of Grain and
Oklahoma City, GUla.—It la- not Im-
probable that the state board of agri-
culture and tlie A. and M. college at
Stillwater will co-operate with the Ok-
laohma City Chamber of Commerce in
the movement to enlist the railroads
in tlie work of making Oklahoma a
great dairying and live stock country.
The state board of agriculture is in
correspondence with the railroads,
and it is said lias received encourag-
ing replies from every railroad oper-
ating in the state. J. I'. Ccunors, of
the state board, Is known to favor

willingness to furnish free trains for
this purpose. The Rock Island also Is

Man Falls Into Thresher
Durant, Okla.—Whit Moody, a
farmer residing northwest of Durant,
was ground Into an unconscious mass
when he fell Into the separator or a
threshing machine on which he was
working. He died shortly after his
body was picked from the machine.
No one was near Moody at the time
of tho accident and it is not known
what caused him to fall. The thresh
ing machine engineer saw him as he
shot head first into the separator.
Wheat Made 43 1-2 Bushels
Guthrie, Okla.—Several farmers In
the western part of the state thought
they had good crops thi* year, but can
not come up to that of Virgil Creek, a
farmer living near Pond Creek, who
raised 2,835 bushels of wheat this year
on seventy acres, or an average of
40 1-2 bushels to the acre. Julius
Decker, living near Lahoma, threshed
37 1-2 bushels to the acre from a 27-
acre field, and the average for the en-
tire 80 acres which he had in wheat
was 33 bushels, machine measure, i
Wood Knox, of the same neighbor- 5
hood, got 1-.000 bushels from 33 acres.

Reckless Speculations Charged
Oklahoma City, Okla.—The loss of
$4,000,000 by the great Pillsbury-
Washburn Klour Mi Is company of
England and America, which has Its
most extensive properties in Minne-
apolis and is the largest of the giant
milling concerns of that city, has
caused quite a stir among the grain
men of Oklahoma. The failure was
due, it is charged, to reckless specula-
tions in an attempt to manipulate the
market and inflate the price of wheat
in the face of conditions which called
i'or a drop in the selling price and de-
spite of the fact that it was already far
above the export figure and the gran-
aries of the nation contained last
year's wheat greatly in excess of the
reported northwestern shortage

the vicinity of 110 degrees. There
were 751 checks issued. The total
amount of the payments was a few

Computing that there are In th
United States at least 300.000 Indigent
cousumptlves who should be cared for
in charitable or seml-charltable sana-
toria and hospitals, tho National A
soclation for the Study and Preven-
tion of Tuberculosis estimates that
the annual cost to the country for ths
treatment of these persons would b
$50,000,000 at the rate of $1,609 per
day per patient At the lowest pos-
sible estimate the country loses $200,-
000,000 a year from the Incapacity of
these Indigent victims of tubercuitK
si3. This would mean a net saving of
$150,000,000 n year to the United
States If all victims of consumption
who are too poor to afford proper
treatment in expensive sanatoria were
cared for at the expense of the munici-
pality, county or state. And, this an-
nual gain does not Include the enor-
mous saving that would accrue from
the lessened infection due to the seg-
regation of the dangerous consume
