Now two problems of fate were to

family bad moved to town early in De

seventeen and three young children.
As Moore passed tbelr place he noted
that It was all dark, tbe family prob
ably absent at some local entertain

sound resembling tbe tipping over of
a piece of furniture. Then from an
open window a form protruded.

receiving which they cUklm is lower
than that of tho street sweepers in

Then coming unawares upon the armed
