Just And Right.
A righteous decision is that of a fed
eral judge in a case from a North West
ern s'afco that relatives of a man killed
on a railway train while riding with a
free pass cannot recover damages. The
attorney whoso daughter sued carried
a pass on the back of which appea-ed
a waiver on the part of the prssenger
of all claim for damages in case of ac
cident. The daughter claimed damages
nevertheless and the court held that
she had no case.
Newspaper men frequently travel
with pa -es. Tbo passes are given in
return for advertising. In other words,
the transportation is really paid for.
The passes always carry tbo release
of tho company from acoidsnt liability.
When tho pass is accepted and used,
the passenger includes the release as a
part of tho contract. For th? courts to
permit him or his heirs to recovei in
spite of this contract would be to ud
liberately place a premium on lying
As long as a man is sane it is his
duty to stand by his contracts. Many
foolish contracts are made but it is not
the business of the courts to upset them
or modify thorn on that account.

Mr. T. Mi Brown, of DeQueen, Ark.,

"Where are we going?" he asked aft

"To a place of safety," camo tho re

"Thanks," he said dryiy. "By tho

Lorry. After a moment be asked,
"How far do we travel tonight?"
"A number of miles."
"Then I'm going to take off this wet
coat. It weighs a ton. Won't yon re
move yours?" He Jerked off the big
rain coot and threw it across to the
opposite seat, with the keys and the
lantern. There was a moments hesi
tation on the part of his companion,
and then a second wet coat followed
the first. Their rain helmets were also
tossed aside. "Makes a fellow feel
After this there was a longer silence
than nt any time before. Tho soldier
drew himself into tho corner of tho
seat, nn action which repelled further
discussion, It seemed to Lorry, so ho
leaned back In the opposite corner and
allowed his mind to wander far from
the Interior of that black, stuffy car
riage. Where wns he going? When
was ho to leavo Graustark? Was ho
to sec her Boon?
Boon the carriage left the smooth
streets of Edelweiss, and he could tell
by the Jolting and careening that they
wero In the country, racing over n
rough, rocky road. It reminded him
of nu overland trip be had taken In
West Virginia some months before,
with the fairest girl in all tho world as
his companion. Now ho was riding In
her carriage, but with a surly, untnlka
tlve soldier of the guard. The more he
nllowed his thoughts to revel In tho
American ride and Its delights tho
moro uncontrollable became his desire
to see the one who had whirled with
him in "Light Horso" Jerry's coach.
"I wish to know how soon I am to
see j our mistress," ho exclaimed im
pulsively, sitting up and striking his
companion's arm by way of emphasis.
To his surprise, the hand was dashed
away, and he distinctly heard tho sol
dier gasp. "I beg your pardon 1" he
cried, fearing that he had given pain
with his eager strength.
"You startled me. I was half asleep,"
stammered the other apologetically.
"Whom do you mean by my mistress?"
"Her royal highness, of course," said
"I cannot Bny when you nro to see

"Am I to see hor soon? That's what
I want to know."
"You must not Insist!" cried the sol
dier. "Why arc you so anxious to see
her?" ho asked suddenly.
"Don't be so blamed Inquisitive,"
cried Grenfnll angrily. Impatiently.
"Tell me where we are going or I'll put
a bullet Into you!" Drawing his re
volver, he leaned over, grasped the
guard by tho shoulder and placed the
mtiEKlo against his breast.
"For God's sake, lie calm! You would

felt lilin tremble and was at once filled
with compunction. How could he ex

"I beg your pardon a thousand times,"
he cried, Jamming the pistol into his
pocket. "You are n brave gentleman,
and I am a fool. Take me where you
will. I'll go like a lamb. You'll admit,
however, that It Is exasperating to bo
going In the dark like this."
"It is a very good thing that It is
dark," snld the soldier quickly. "The
darkness Is very kind to us. No one
can see us, and we can see no one."
"I should say not. I haven't the
faintest Idea what you look like. Have
I seen you at the castle?"
"Will you tell me your name?"

For some tlino they bumped along
over the t'OUgll road, jostling against
each other frequently, both enduring
stoically and silently. Suddenly Lorry
retnoinbored the lantern. It was still
lit With the slid'1 closed when ho threw
It on the seat. Perhaps it still burned
and could reHove the oppressive dark
ness If but for a short lime. Ho
might at least satisfy his curiosity and
look upon the face of his companion.
Leaning forward, he rumbled among
the traps on the opposite seat.
"I think I'll see if the lantern is
lighted. Let's have it a little more
cheerful in here," he said. There was
a sharp exclamation, ami two vigorous
hands grasped him by the shoulder,
Jerking him back unceremoniously.
"No, no! You will ruin all! There
must he no light!" cried the soldier, his
voice high and shrill.
"But we are out of the city."
"I know! I know! But I will not

orders. We have not passed r'?*> out

"What's the matter with your voice?"
demanded Lorry, struck by the change
"My voice?" r.skcd the other, the
tones natural again. "It's changing.
Didn't it embarrass you when your
voice broke like Hint?" went on the
questioner breathlessly. Lorry was
now leaning back in the seat, quite a
"I don't believe mine ever broke like
that," he said speculatively. There
was no response, and he sat silent for
some time, regretting more and more
thnt it was so dark.
Gradually he became conscious of a
Strange, unaccountable presence In
that dark cab. Ho could feel a change
Coming over him. lie could not tell
why, but he was sure that some one
else was beside him, some one who was
not the soldier. Something soft and
delicate and sweel came into existence,
permeating the darkness with its un
deniable presence. A queer power
seemed drawing him toward the other
end of the seat. The most delightful
sensations took possession of him. Ills
heart fluttered oddly. His head began
to reel under the spell.
"Who nre you?" he cried in a sort
of ecstasy. There was no answer. Ho
remembered his match safe and with
trembling, eager lingers drew it from
the pocket of the coat he was wearing.
The next Instant he was scratching a
match, but as It flared the body of his
companion was hurled against his and
a ruthless mouth blew out the feeble

in his ears.

The next match drove away the dark

In the corner, one arm covering his

soldier in the strong arms of the fugi

blushing, unresisting coward. The lithe
form quivered and then became mo

shoulder, his hot lips caressing tho
burning face and pouring wild, Inco

"You! You!" he cried, mad with joy.
"Oh, this is heaven itself! My brave

With Lorry in the center, the trio

Shortens your- food-kiitflhcns your life
because it makes healthful and delicious food. As a frying and shortening
medium it has no equal. It is far superior to lard or cooking butter.
Cottolene is healthful because it is a product of nature, Going made of
refined vegetable oil and choice beef suet. We guarantee the purity.
CoUolcne is also a cle<Tn product; the fact that it comes in securely
scaled tin pails insures this. Bulk lard, on the other hand, i3 open to re
ciovc all the dust and odors imaginable.
Cottolenc-cookcd food is more digestible than food made from hog
lard. It makes food rich but not greasy?food which any stomach can
digest. If purity, hcalthfulncss, cleanliness and economy appeal to you,
ask your gr ocer for Cottolene.
USE J/j LESS. Cottolene being richer than either lard or cooking
butter, one-third less is required.

I want five traveling salesmen oij salary and
commission to sell life insurance. I want busi
ness inen who are able to earn at least $100.00
per month. The ?State Life paid thirty per cent
dividend last year on policies over four years old.
No other Company did. The State Life operates
under a law which requires it to maintain on
deposit with the State Department enough secu
rities to cover all its liabilities. No other Com
pany operating in .South Carolina complies with
such a law. I want men with stickitiveness
to sell these policies. Mow about you? Cati
you sell better goods than those sold by your
competitors? If so, you want to write to me.
