In the meantime Robert Mor-
ton had entered the magnificant
bank of George Gaston and had
told him of his daughters robbery.
After a few minutes talk they
took a street car for the hospital
and in a few minutes they stood
by the lifeless form of Clara Gast-
on. Her breath came in short
gasps; her eyes half closed and
a dim grin of death seemed as
though it was ready to gather in
upon her dimpled cheeks. The
father stood in tears, for his
beautiful daughter brought back
the image of his dear wife who
had died only three years before.
Young Morton stood in a strick-
ened awe of silence by the side
of the broken hearted father as
the door softly opened and Jim
Gaston entered with slow, calm
foot-steps and his face bore the
expression of deep sorrow, for
his sister was all the joy of this
world to him.
THE NIGHT OF TEKHOR
The sad day was now coming to
a close. Seven o’clock rang out
from the clock down stairs. The
rain came down in great gushes
against the walls of the building
which made the night more drear
and desolate to the many friends
who had heard of Miss Gaston’s
misfortune and had gathered at
the hospital to pay their dutiful
respects to their beloved friend.
Presently George Gaston beckon-
ed to his son and Morton. * He
lead them into the private office
of the hospital and after they
were comfortably he said:
‘‘Jim, did Phill agree to take
this mystry in his hands
and find out all he could about it"
‘‘Yes, father, he said he would
give it very close attention” was
the calm answer Jim gave.
‘‘I am proud we have a man
of ability and experienced as a
detective to solve it for us, Mor-
ton,” he said turning to the
young lawyer who had been list-
ening to the conversation be-
tween father and son. “I might
as well engage you to help Phill
in your spare time for if it costs
me a fortune. I am going to find
the man that commited the rob-
‘‘I am at your service in any
way that you want me,” replied
‘‘Alright meet me at the bank
tomorrow, if you can do so with-
out neglecting your trial.”
“I will be there at three o’clock
tomorrow evening, and now I
must say, good night and return
to the hotel for it is now 10:30,”
By this time Morton had drew
his rain coat over his shoulders

Blair ginned her first bale of
cotton Tuesday, finest crop for
several years, no market. Think
if more time was given to try
and help the farmer get a market
for he raises to sell instead of
blowing what great things they
would do when elected to con-
gress or the senate or the goven-
ots place we would have better
times, and the farmers would
feel better and have more money.

Saved Girl’s Life £
“I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re- J
ceived from the use of Thedford’s Black-Draught,” writes J
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky. JJ
“It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds, JJ
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught ?
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles, J
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford’s J
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no J|
more trouble. I shall never be without j
. _ THEDFORD'S mm0-
j|jj in my home.” For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi- J
jgj ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar S
ailments, Thedford’s Black-Draught has proved itself a safe, E
Jp reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.

J Draught It is a medicine of known merit Seventy-five ®
