It is gratifying to note the in
creased interest tht the business
men and citte-ns of the town are
showing in the Commercial Club
There seem9 to be more of a
feeling of co-operation than has
ever been apparent before and
this id the keynote to the situa
tion. Much can be done for the
pood of the community through
the Club but it can only be done
by sincere co-operation.
If this paving bill should carry,
just how much do yon think
would be spent in developing
those parts of the state that now
have no road to mRrket?
The state engineer says it wil'
take approximately $40,000,000
to build the roads outlined in the
paving bill. A. R. Shumway. of
the Farmers' Union, says it will
take $40,000,000 more to pay the
interest on 25-year bonds.
Five years ago an initiative
bill to issue and sell $1,000,000
state road bonds each year was
turned down by the people by a
majority of practically 45,000

human from behind his bauds without

he spoke I observed tons of com
mand come Into the voles of my Oou
rerneur Faulkner that was as clear
aud beautiful as the call of ths bujls
to meu for a battle.
"I dons what I had to, and I'm
ready to die for It. I've got nothing

of the cage In which the three of us
were Inclosed. "Who are you any
way? My state has said I wss to
swing for killing blm. and' there's no
more to question about It."
"I am ttie governor of your state,"
answered that Gouverneur Faulkuer
as be rose and stood, tall and com
manding, before the poor buruau being
who was cowering as a dog that had
felt the lush of a whip. "You are my
sou because you are a sou of the s;ate
of llarpeth, and as a representative of
that state I am going to exercise my
guardiauship and If possible prevent
the state from the crime of taking your
life if you do not deserve puulshment."
"I'm condemned by the laws of the
stai. Yon can't go back on that, gov.
eruor or no governor." made answer
the man. with a pantlug of misery In
"As you know, there are certain un
written laws which have more Influ
ence In some cases as to the guilt of
murderer than any on the ststute
books." said the Gouverneur Faulkner
with a very great slowness, so that the
poor human dog might comprehend
him. "If you killed your brother to
save-save Mary Brown from worse
than death then you have not the right
to demand execution from your state
to shelter her from publicity when she
Is no longer In danger of anything
worse. Did you get to her in time to
save her or''
"Yes. I did and I had. Curse you!
I'll have to kill you for getting word
out of me that all the lawyers have
tried to make me say all this time."
And with the oath and a snarl the mun
made a lunge at my Gouverneur Faulk
ner with something keen and shining
that he had drawn from the top of bis
coarse boot. But that poor human
being of the prison was not of enough
quickness to do the killing of bis desire

"Don't try nothing to hurt Mary,
governor. Jest let me hang and I
won't uever care what"- the poor hu
man began to plead.
"I'll look after Mary and you too,
Tlmms. I'll see to It that" my Gou

trembling plea for his mercy when the

"Stop, Robert." commanded his ex
cellency ss we came under a large
group of very old trees which made a
thick sLclter of t?lr green leaves as
they leaned together over the stone
wall tUtt bordered the side of the
road. "Now let me see Just what did
bippen to that arm which came be
tween poor Tlmms' sharpened rase

been up with Tlmms if that attac
upon me had been discovered. Your
pluck will have saved Tlmms, If he's
saved, as well as your governor. Here,
turn toward me and let me see that
arm." And as be spoke my Gouver
ueur Faillkner put bis aru across my
shoulder and turued me toward blm so
tout be could put bis right band on
tbe sleeve of that cheviot bag in which
was a long slash from the knife and
which was now wet with my blood.
"I very much fear my beloved brown
cheviot, which 1 have worn ouly a few
rimes. Is now dead, and bow will I find
anctbtr for my ueed!" I exclaimed
with a great alarm when I saw that
that knife had thus devastated my
good clothing, of which I bad not many
and for the procuring of which I was
many thousand miles from my good
friend and tailor In New York. If 1
sought another suit In tbe city of
