PURE PLANTING SEED
A. D. Mebane Solves Above
MEBANE Is to Cotton Seed what
Sterling is to Silverware, a guarantee
of quality. However, of late years the
Cotton Seed Buyer has been swindled
In the purchase of Planting Seed from
eome unscrupulous dealers, who have
represented they had pure Meban«
Keed, when the Seed they were sell
ing was in many cases not Melbant
Seed at all, and if Mebane, so many
years from the Original Seed that the
qualities which make Mebane THE
BEST l.ud run out.
Mr. A. i). Mebane, knowing- full well
the wishes of the farmer, and reallz- j
Ing that it was not only a reflection
on the quality of his Seed—which has 1
Ktood the test for over twenty years—
but also having the interests of his j
fellow fanners at heart, in seeing that
they should get his I'EDKSREED j
M.ANTINtJ COTTON SEED, when 1
they sso desired, conceived of a plan j
by which he could supply the great
demand and protect the Buyer.
Mr. Mebane has had his trade-

catch horses. At length, after a con-
sultation, they hurried back to the
j rump, collected a few more Canadluns
and Americans, and started out after
j V\ IIton, leaving a half-dozen to keep
the workmen iu check.
In the shack Tonguay stared apa-
| tlietlcally at Andersen, who sat with
• the revolver In his hand, keeping
I watch over his captive.

demanded after a while.
"I dunno, my friend," answered An-
dersen. "If you did, I guess you'll
swing for It. all right."
"See here! Jim Hackett tole me to

Tonguay. "I didn't do not'Ing. What

"Boss's orders," said Andersen
gruffly. "That'll be enough. Set down
like a good feller, now."
"You lie! I tell you I didn't do dat!
screamed Tonguay, sinking back Into
his chair and shuddering.
They watched each other for some
time. It was beginning to grow light.
Suddenly the trample of horses was
heard outside. Then Inspector Quain
j appeared at the door of the shack, ac-
j eompanied by four mounted consta-
i "Had considerable trouble, eh?" he
j said, dismounting and casting a glance
• about him at the burned-out buildings
and the still burning sheds.
i "That fire was set by enemies of
tfie Missatibl," shouted one of the en-
gineers. "And we've got one of the
men in there!" He pointed toward the
Quain turned to his men, who were
♦waiting the order to dismount.
"Round up those men In their bunk-
houses and keep the lot of 'em under
guard!" he said, pointing toward the
groups of laborers that had gathered
about the horses.
The constables drove the Hunkles
tack toward their quarters. 'Two of
you'll be enough !" shouted Quain after
them. "The other two—Beckett and
James—will dismount and rest their
horses. I'll want you chaps!"
I "You've had some trouble," said j
| Quain to Andersen.
j "Why, this ain't trouble. Inspector," j
answered the Swede. "You just look
I Inside that room. I guess It ain't the j
worst, what I told you already."
i Quain strode to the door of Wilton's
bedroom, uttered a aharp exclamation
and bent over the body of Jules. He
came back quickly.
"Who killed that Indian r be asked.
"Lee Chambers, I guess."
"Tell me what you know."
"Why, all I know is he done some
cooked work on the trestling and

Bowyer looked the Incarnation of In-
solence and triumph as he stood In the
doorway, red-faced, red-haired, like
some sleek fox that has put off its
habitual cunning because it Is at last
secure from danger.
His vicious eyes fixed themselves
upon the girl's face as she fastened
back the hair thut hung about her.
"That brute was rough tfltb you,"
said Bowyer. "But I guess you gave
him better than he gave you. I guess
he got what he deserved. I told them
you weren't to come to any harm.
Well, McDonald, they didn't use you
too rough, eh?"
"We were brought here by force and
violence." said Molly defiantly. "Are
we to be kept here In the same way?"
Suddenly Bowyer stepped forward
and took her hands. "Molly—listen
to'me now." he said. "Listen quietly.
I'm not going to hurt you. I love you.
I've get to have you, Molly. But I
want you to love me. Let's forget ft
all. What'd you say. Molly? Did you

She tried to draw her hands away,
but he held them tightly, and, remem-
bering her resolution, she sfood with

"What's your answer, Molly?" asked
"Never!" she cried. "You knew

"Maybe she'll obey you. McDonald." he
said softly; and something In his tone
arrested the girl's attention.
McDonald was gray with fear. He
leaped up. "Molly, he means it!" he
screamed. "We can't escape him.

The sight of tbe trembling old man
swept away all the girl's resolve. Her
loathing for their peraecutor drove her
to frenzy. She tore her hsnds from
Bowyer'a. ran behind the divan and
snatched up a rifle that stood there.

was tbe saute appeal of a whipped dog

He swung toward her. "I'll tell you,

"You're her father!" There was In-

while she's on her honeymoon with
With a whimpering cry the factor
dropped to his knees and hid bis face
In his hands. Molly let the rifle fall
and shrank back against the wall. A
cry broke from her lips.
"It Isn't true, father!" she begged,
fixing her eyes In terror upon the fac-
tor's. "Tell him It Isn't true. You
dldn t kill that man who Insulted my
mother 1 And. If you did, "you did It
to protect her. Tell him It's a lie!"
The factor's whimpering moans
were all her answer. They ceased,
and for a full minute there was not
the least sound In the room. Slowly
Molly raised her head, and the look
that had come Into her eyes at last
was one that Bowyer had seen In
the eyes of many men and women be-
fore. He knew that the time of his
triumph had come.
"Unless I marry you, Tom Bowyer,"
said Molly, "you will betray my father,
who trusted you?"
"I"l give him up to Justice," Bow-
yer shouted. "I'll fight with what
weapons I've got. Wouldn't any man
who was a man fight for what he
wanted most of all in the world? If

his voice broke Into a whimper.
"Shut up, you old fool!" said Bow-
yer, contemptuously. "If jou agree,
Molly." he said, "the past will all be
forgotten. I swear it will. I love you.

She looked up. to see Bowyer'a red
face peering Into her own. She shiv-
ered, as If with mortal cold.
"I'll marry you." she said.
The slow smile that spread over
Bowyer'a face was Indescribable. He
turned to McDonald. "Well, that's set-
tled at last," he aald, rubbing his
hands together In gloating self-satis-
faction. "Get to bed. McDonald! Molly
and I will sit up a while and talk over
the details of our honeymoon trip.
That ain't your business. Maybe we'll
do a little love-making on the side,
too. but not too rough. I guess I know-

There followed bis returning foot-
steps, and the sharp, sudden click of
a key. Then came a furious rattling
from within. Bowyer turned angrily.
"Go to tied, you old fool 1" he
ahouted. "Didn't I tell you I'd take
care of her?"
The rattling ceased, but Molly heard

An application has Just been re-

Legion [>ost In Korea by the l^egion'a
national department. There are 15
persons eligible for membership In
Korea and the application beara all
the names. The local post will have
its post In Korea, and Is being organ-
ized by M. L. Sw'lnebart, treasurer of
j the Southern Presbyterian mission In
that country. In his letter accompany-

Swlnehart aald: "Please have tbe ap-
plication ucted upon as quickly as poa-

wanting to get busy and get the post

Hackett was in the room. He was
shouting to Bowyer. who released the
half-conscious girl, stood up, nnd
yelled In answer. The outlaw was
tugging frantically at his arm. There
came the plunge of a heavy body
against the door of the camp. Hackett
sprang forward, nnd fell sprawling
back under a terrific blow.
Wilton stood on the threshold.
Molly saw it all as If In a dream.
The hideous presence of her assailant
was still with her. Then she saw
Hackett an«J Bowyer pull pistols from
their |lockets. And each act was ex-
tended In her mind and vision through
an eternity, as If It would never end.
She sprang to the table, seized the
oil lamp, and hurled It at their backs.
Tt struck them fairly, sending them
staggering before they had time to
fire. Instantly the curtains before the
windows w ere ablaze. A stream of
hunting oil shot across the floor to the
divan, which began burning furiously,
filling the room with smoke. Wilton
and the two men closed.
There followed a furious struggle.
The combatants rolled over and over,
stumbling against the burning divan,
knocking over the chairs, crashing In-
to the walls. All the while McDonald
hammered at the door and added his
shouts to the uproar.
Molly darted across the passage and
released him. "They're murdering
Will!" she cried. But the old man.

edly. Molly ran back. Hackett had
Wilton by the throat, and, as she
entered the room, Bowyer wrenched
himself free, raised his pistol, and
brought the butt crashing down on
Wilton's head. Wilton toppled back
Into the blazing oil.
Bowyer alined, but Molly knocked
tip his arm, and the shot went wild.
Rowyer turned upon Molly with s

pistol to strike her down. McDonald
