electric arc of ' HiU.UUU candle "power

only a few miles from the source of

most demoralizing. When the bright

beam is removed the eye can see .noth

lt takes all the nerve out of n man. "so
that only the best trained and ..most
courageous can continue the attack.

was. The deacon was sworn 'und

"Yes." he replied. "I know every'foot
"What do you think It worth. Mr.
Potter?" was the next question.
