And for cuiphaVla she rested her hand
for a moment on his sleeve. Her
touch gave him an odd thrill.
Miss Riley got up to go to her state
room, and then, as If under the spell
of Impulsiveness, added quite shyly:

In the smoking room."

Win Shute heard a parsing remark
and suddenly It dawned on hltn that
tho day he once bad looked forward
most keenly, but which he hud a
most forgotten, was at hand. At last
he could move ngnlnst his, enemies!
Kow he could establish his Identity!

After six hours of waiting, the oper

It was signed by the club's secre

he was no nearer spotting his en

And Miss Riley didn't care for base

Strange how values chango In a voy
age across the Atlantic.
Aboard ship he ran upon the ship's

Win Shute was certain. The wire
ess operator was a crook. Ho was a
party to the devilish conspiracy that
had dmgged aud put him away on
the ship!
Rage such as he had never felt in
all his life consumed him. He could
not curb his de'slre to hurl himself up
on Mansel nnd beat hltn to Insensibili
ty. Hut as ho was on his toes to
spring, a restraining hand wus luld
upon tils arm.
It was Miss Riley. "Muy I speak
to you, please?"
Reluctantly Win Shute turned from,
his enemy. He and Miss Riley walked
along tho deck until they wcro out
of hearing of everybody,
"I looked for you before the pass
engers went ashore," she said. "You
see," she went on, then faltered
"you see 1 wanted to ask a favor of

The ship's mystery unaccountably

taking this means to keep In touch
with her. Whereas n steward would
carry Marconlgntms to other passen
gers, Jed Mansel Invariably delivered
Miss -Riley's messages himself. Nat
urally this attention would bo recog
nized by nn appreciative person like
Miss Riley.
That Jcrrold Mansel wns downright
crooked, there wasn't much doubt.
But Win hnd to admit that his proof
was far from conclusive. Trls Ford's
wireless was a fake hut there wat
the possibility of faking somewheru
along the line of transmission. Mou
se) had bet heavily against tho (Hunt
killers but so had thousands of oth
er persons. The operator's remark
about the player who would be missed
from the line-up was strong circum
stantial evidence against hltn and
still It could hnve been n "second
guess;" he might hnve heard after
the series that one of the best men
had been out of the game. Certainly
there wasn't enough solid proof to
warrant Win Shuto In denouncing the
wireless operator.
And If he did If ho warned Miss
Riley against Jerrold Mansel It
would Involve a disclosure of the fact
that he. James U'lnton Shute, was n
professional baxehall player. He
wasn't ready to make that admission.
The fact that the tlnost girl didn't enre
a hang for the nntlonnl pastime con
stituted a mighty serious problem. It
wasn't pleasant to continue to mas
querade as "Mr. James," but It was
an Incognito enforced. So things were
permitted to drift.
It wns moonlight on the Mediter
ranean, the last night but one of Win
Shute's long voyage to Naples from
unconsciousness. He had started out
to act the part of a "trusty" to do
nothing against the captain's author
ity, but secretly to work toword one
end. namely, tho circumvention of his
enemies. After a fortnight at sen, al
though he was naturally Interested In
hs own he had lost much of
his violent ungnr against thoso who
hud forced him to become n passenger
on the ship. For If they hadn't If he
had remained nt home he would not
hnve met tho flnoit girl I As Tils Ford
would have suld: "There ain't will
ing to thut."

Many Farmers Who Are Using

Tho thing most needed In the pro

farms Is greater euro In the selection

say ntilmnl husbandry experts of the
United States department of agricul
ture, who hnve been studying the pres
ent sltuntton with respect to horses.
Not only was there n not decrease of
approximately .'173.000 In tliu number
of horses on farms on January 1, com
pared with a year ago, but the experts
tiro of tho opinion that there has been
nn even more marked decrease In tho
number of mares bred during 1011).
Tho extent of this decreuso cannot bo

Many fanners nre using up their
work stock without making any pro
vision for tho future. Such a policy
Is short-sighted and will have serious
results, according to department of
agriculture representatives. The pres
ent need Is to Increase tho percentage
of efficient horses by careful selection
of parents. One of tho principal fac
tors from which, the market Is suffer
ing Is the breeding of too ninny low
grade work animals. There Is n strong
demntid for high-class horses, nt good
