lake the Muscle Shoals situation.
Representative Madden says that to
leaoe the properties to Henry Ford
it ii reie-sary for t1 government to
spent $3,500,000 on a steam plant and
$50,000,000 on dams. Opponents to
these large expenditures argue that
government property costnig 17 times
Mr. Ford's $5,000,000 cash offer, is be
ing given up.
So far as the whole Muscle Shoals
controversy appears to the public, it
seems to hinge around how many
million dollars the government is go
ing to spend in order to get somebody
j to lease the property at a very minor
pure, and not what the public is go
ing to get for the expenditure of its
tax funds or the granting of a 100
year lease.
The tanners have been led to br
ieve they are going to get cheap fer-
iter. what guarantee have they
got that they will get fertiliser, cheap
or otherwise? What guarantee has
been made to industries that they
11 get cheap power or any power at
at points where they might wish
operate plants near Muscle Shoals?
These are simple pointa that would
eel nitely decided under any lease
private property between Individ
s or corporations. Then why
cant politics be wiped out of the
present Muscle Shoals controversy
and definite promises made to the
public aa to what bene tits it, the pub
is to derive from the further ex
penditure of $50,000,000 on the Mus
is Shoals proposition? When states
and nation are trying to reduce taxes
hy put more millions into a relic

vantages for the taxpayers in so
doing? The Manufacturer.
Will Ask No Increase
In Forest Grazing Fees
That the secretary of Agriculture
ill ask for no increase of grazing
fees on national forests during 1924
the information received in a tel-
gram by Mac Hoke, secretary of the
Oregon Wool Growers association
from Senator Charles L, McNary,
d published in Tuesday's Pendle
ton East Oregonian. It has not been
expected the increase would be asked
for before 1925, according to Mr. Hoke
but livestock men were already in
the saddle battling against the pro
posal to make the increase in 1925.
They contend that an increase will
be ruinous to their business.

Mallinson believed that Ruih was
sfill in love with Craig. "I be
lieve tiia! Craig won your con
lidenee," he sneered, 'to injure you
and your business."
Ruth turned to Weatherby. ' Ar
range to have the title to Haunted
Vailey served and the deed made
out to Mr. Mallinson," she said.
The girl then started for the police
Craig, being ignorant of the real
state of affairs, was delighted to see
Ruth. -Mr. Crawford and 1 started
from the dam with the check, but
were heid up on the road," he said.
"The police didn't understand so
here I am. If you hurry to Mallin
son w ith the check "
"It is too late. 1 must keep my
agreement and forfeit Haunted
Vailey to Mr. Mallinson "
"And marry him?" Ruth nodded
"But Mallinson is a crook!" Craig
ejaculated, "i am sure that it was
his men who held me ur.
"1 am beginning to believe that
you are the crook and not Mr. mal
linson," Rum returned. "How did
you come to be in Haunted Valley
the dav we first met?"
Cra.g was astonished. I can't
tell you now," he replied, evasively,
"but soon I will be free to exclain.
"Mallinson was right," the girl
persisted. "You won my confidence
to save your own ends I never
want to see you again !
With i sorrowful heart, Ruth
Ranter turned and left. A few
moments later, Eugene Craig was
set free.
As Ruth was about to step in her
car. she saw Mr. Crawford ap
proaching. He hastened to the girl's
side and toid her everything con
cerning the unfortunate event which
delayed the payment of the check.
"lou are very fortunate in nav
trig a friend as loyal as Mr. ura.g,
tied," he finished, "but you are free
to get the biggest story of the year
and and aiso can help me to pre'
vent this marriage.
And 1 have just a week in
which to do it," smiled Foster.
In the days tnar followed, Dick
1-oster never left Mallinson s trail.
Finally, one night in Haunted Val
ley, he managed to trace him to the
secret control room, but Foster was
a trifle too persistent in his efforts
to pry into the enemy s stronghold.
and was unmindful of the different
bits of mechanism inside. Aiaiiuv
son had not been without suspicion
and was aware that he had been fol
lowed. Consequently, the next
thing the reporter knew, he was
suddenly precipitated into the un
derground chamber.
itiis is quite a place you have
nere, Mallinson, ne saia calmly.
Clad you like it, for you 11 be
here a long time," came the answer.
Henry Mallinson tried in every
possible way to worm information
out of Foster, but he could not get
me young man to speak. And even
though Foster was a prisoner, he
was the most observant party ever
neia under lock ana key.
When the time came for Foster to
return and make a report to Eugene
Uraig, tne latter was again thrown
into the throes of dejection. He
knew in a moment that something
nad gone wrong, foster was n
only aid, and now he had disap
peared. Craig determined to do
something desperate to save Ruth
from the tricks of Mallinson.
Finally the night of the wedding
came. Ruth's only stipulation was
that the ceremony should be
private affair. She and her guests
were in the living room of her
house waiting for Mallinson to ar
rive. Weatherby was in constant
attendance, watching over the girl
like a father.
"With Mr. Mallinson allied with
us and with the million which you
didn t have to pay bac& to him,
comforted, "Ranger, Inc., faces
wonderful future."
Ruth was not so sure of this.

many things. Thoughts of Eugene
Craig were coming to the girl con

to save the check from those ruf
fians." Ruth was again dismayed. Was it
possible that she had misjudged
Craig. In vain she had fought
against the thought that she loved
him, but even as Crawford had men
tioned the young man's name her
heart seemed to leap to her throat.
In the meantime, Craig had hast
ened to his office. That he felt
downhearted over the attitude of
Ruth was putting it mildly. And
yet, his hands were tied. He could
not speak out everything that he
would like to. As he entered his
office, a strange man waiting for
him made him start back in sur
prise. The visitor greeted Craig and
followed the young man into his
private sanctum.
"Mr. Craig." he began, "several
months ago we sent you here to do
certain work in Haunted Valley, i
understand that a ery attractive
young lady has caused you to neg
lect your work."
"You are wrong," Craig protested.
1 felt that if I first won Miss Ran
ger's confidence, tt would be a great
kelp in the Haunted valley case.
"Craig, we must have results in
Haunted Valley! Drop everything
and get busy!"
Meanwhile, the police report on
the million dollar check had caused
no small stir in Newspaper Row.
And this had brought Dick Foster
of the Morning Globe to interview
Craig and worm out what he hoped
would be a sensational story. At
first Craig was loath to tell any
thing to his visitor but the your:
min i persistence was smaing.
"Reporters are not just trouble
makers," Foster persisted. "Of
course I want a story, but in teturn
I nnv be ible to help you."
"Fair enough," Craig smiled.
"Then I'll tell you the entire yarn,
but I must insist that you will not
print a line of it until the story
really ends." And then Craig began
his inuring disclosure, that not

At that
moment henry Mallinson arrived.
Ruin felt like a slave about to be
sacrificed to the highest bidder.
Mallinson was extremely pale.
Mysterious warnings had been sent
to him, indicating that somethin;
might happen any time. In fact, at
that very moment, Ruth's butler a
proached Mallinson and handed h;
a note. The latter took it and walk

Denslow! A shudder passed
tnrouen Mallinson. It was impos
sible! Denslow had been put away
at his orders on the Island of
Haraki. Mallinson paced back and
forth nervously. Several times he
started for the door, but each time
his cowardice got the better of him.
Finally Mallinson summoned all his
courage. He wanted to get to the
bottom of the thing. He walked to
the front door and threw it open

A Carpenter
The young Carpenter of Nazareth was a
worker who loved joyousness and beauty,
even as His heart overflowed with sympa
thy for the weary toilers who passed before
His workshop door.
He may have been a man of many sorrows
but it is equally true that He was also a man
of many joys. They welcomed Him at wed
ding feasts; children went to him instinct
ively the common people heard his magic
words that lightened their burdens, and the
wise men listened to Him attentively because
he had a secret beside which their knowledge
was as dust before wind.
The centuries have rolled by and his com
mand survives to love one another. And it
was He who taught us that the greatest is
he who serves most.
Obeying these commands, let us all open
our hearts to the beauty in the world and
the lovableness and essential goodness of
the men and women in it.
May we learn that those who give most
and that those who offer themselves com
pletely in service to their fellows find their
hearts flooded with peace which passeth un
derstanding. On His birthday let each one of us dedi
cate our lives to carrying forward his mes
sage of peace on earth, good will to all men.
