in the cottage near the works.
CHAPTER X?Halsey's machine proves
a success, but he keeps the fact a secret.
"Do ye mind that now?" gasped Jim
Sullivan, and wrenched at the lever,
restoring it to its original position.
The purring of the motor ceased, the
blue sparks disappeared, the roar subsided
"What was it?" demanded Tim Carney.
"Throw her in again, Jim!"
"Not on yer life!" gasped Jim Sullivan.
"I dunno what 'tis, but I'll take

works, on a Sunday leastways. There's
somethm' wrong in here, I'm tellin*

She's under power, same like a
compressed air drill?but where'd she
'git her power??the divil's in it, that's
all, Tim. I'm thinkin' the best we can
do is to git away from here. Come,
shut the dure?an* watch it. Me, I'm
goin' to the praste ag'in this very day!
1 see now what that felly wanted!"
Jim Sullivan locked the door and
left his friend guarding it; then hurried
across the street to the superintendent's
cottage. Mrs. Sullivan, busy j
there about her morning duties, would
have stopped him, but Jim would have
to denial, and hastening up the stair's
xo Halsey's bedroom, impetuously demanded
entrance. Halsey, drawn, haggard,
unshorn, greeted him, half sitting
up in bed.
"What's wrong, Jim?" he demanded.
"Has anybody got into the
"Hush, boy!" said Jim, his finger on
liis lips. "You need tell me nothin'.
But I know what it's all about."
Halsey sat looking at him dumbly.
"Fire me if you like, my son," went
on Jim Sullivan. " 'Tis true I've done
what I had no ri^ht to do. Mr* Malmsey,
sir, I thro wed her in!"
"You did what?"
"I throwed h<er in. An' she worked
?she worked like a bird! Then I
throwed her out ag'in an' come a ./ay
-an' locked the door. Tim was there,
too. 'Tis none of my business. ?ut
I've come to tell you the truth, an' you
;can fire me if you like! But it's hell,
it's harnessed hell ye've got in there.
-An' others want to stale it."
By this time Halsev was getting
into his clothing and only half listening
to what his foreman said.
"What kills me is, I can't see how
-she works! She runs by herself all
the time, chuggin' like a fire ingin.
But where does she git it?"
Halsey made no answer. He was
;pale as a dead man. A few moments
iater taey were nurrymg acwn trie

the long, deserted room with its rows
of gaunt enginery. They stood before
the completed receiver, whose motor
so perfectly had caught the power of
the free second current from the air
?John Rawn's costless, stolen power.
"What makes her 2:0?" demanded
Jim Sullivan. "Fer what is the hole
in the roof yon?"
Halsey turned to him. "It's the Mississippi
river makes it go, Jim. If we
didn't leave a hole in the roof how
'Could the river go through? Now do

'Harge hand on his shoulder, "you're

"worryin'. Tis a rest ye must be takin'

"You're right:" said Halsey. "I think
I'll just take a little ride this afternoon.
Jim, come here and help me. I
want to see if we can charge up this

| Graham Moffat's delicious cjnely
j that landed in America last sunnier
| and set the critics and thoati'j-goors
! agog, will be seen at the opera house.
It is more thoroughly "liumiT-" than
any play given to the stage in a decade
and bears the title "Buut? Pulls
the Strings." Its fun lies in its dissection
of Scotch cannint-ss and Scotch
closeness. The canniest of all the
folk is Bunty Biggar, who "pulls the
strings" that control the arteries of
all the rest. She's a young and pretty
lassie, who runs her father's household,
conducts her own ana oilier peoples
love affairs and straightens out
matters to the advantage of all concerned.
The sensational somedy success
"Bunty Pulls the Strings" is an early
booking at the opera house. This delicious
novelty is the maiden effort of
Graham Moffat, a well known Glasgow
actor of Scotland, and is built
for laughing purpose only. There
is not a play on the boards in England
or America today that is as amusing
as this rmaint character idvl. It
is a sure cure for the blues, domestic
troubles, indigestion?in short,
everything. It is the best doctor and
j the cheapest. The story is original,
j the dialogue bright and witty and the
j situations most comical. The attrac
tion comes under the direction of the
Messrs. Shubfrt and Wiliam A. Brady.
The Messrs. ?hubert and Wiliam
j A. Bradly announce the first local preI
sentation of "Bunty Pulls the Strings"
Graham Moffat's delightful character
comedy at the opera house. The secret
of "Bunty's" success lies in the fact
that it is so different from all plays
that have, gone before. It is simplicity
itself and the plot is the least important
thing about the play. The characters
and the things they say and the
thev reveal nrovide the deep
| est interest. The players are specially
| imported from the leading theatres
of Edinburg and Glasgow.
CONFEDERACY'S LAST STAND.
Description of Fire Forks Pickett
Wrote to His Wife.
The battle of Five Forks was practically
the final gasp of the dying Confederate
cause. Hemmed in on all
sides by a Union fprce. that tripled
their own they put up a fight that will
go down in the annals of history as
one of the most terrific battles ever
fought. Like lions at bay, this remn

carried on for hours, an unequal combat
until the wearied Union forces
permitted the survivors to escape.
General George E. Pickett, the hero of
Gettysburg and commander at "Five
Forks," describes the battle in the
following letter which he wrote his
wife in 1864, appearing in Pictorial
"Just after mailing my letter to you
at Five Forks, telling you of our long
continuous march of eighteen hours,
and of the strenuous hours following
these, where I had, because of exigent
circumstances, been induced to fall
back at daylight, I received a dispatch
from tbe great "Tyee," telling me to
hold Five Forks at all hazards to prevent
the enemy from striking the
southside railroad." This dispatch was
in reply to one I had sent to him Te-j
porting the state of aifairs and that
the <enemy were trying to get in be-1
tween the army and my command, and
asking that diversion be made at once
or I should be isolated.
I had had all trains parked in the
rear of Hatcher's Run and much preferred
that position, but from the general's
dispatch, supposed that he intended
sending reinforcements. 1 im

the White Oak road and set my men to

of which the nature of the ground ad

on the right, Ransom's and Wallace's
brigades, acting as one and numbering
about 900, on the left; then Corse,
; Terry and Stuart, numbering about
13,000. Six rifled pieces of artillery
were placed at wide intervals. Fitz

Carbon Dioxide Fonnd to be Profita*
By a new method of artificial
ripening certain fruits that are bitter
and highly astringent in a green state,
such as dates and persimmons. Francis
E. Lloyd of McGill university has
made it practicable to market such
fruits in an edible condition before
they have become too soft for use. For
centuries tne Araus nave
dates by exposing to the vapors of ;
vinegar; and the Japanese have similarly
brought persimmons to the edi
ble stage by placing in tubs from
