' (Continued from Last Week.) " In the gloom of that left wing, taut a gladiator, Mr. Al Delano, clad In fold-colored ' tight, with a tg ttg of liver lightning down his front, bal anced In waiting on the tip of the titillating spring bonrd In readiness for tls flight across the stage. Ills muscles sprang out and his bl eeps swelled to capacity, and beneath the gold-colored tights his diaphragm Suddenly contracted, throwing his great chest upward. "All Hall the Storm KlngT Miss Laladsy drew backward the bar until It lay across her little bosom and, as the silver wire Jerked her ever o slightly higher, flung it from her with one hand, and with her free arm tossed her silver wreath downward to ward the figure beside the wind ma chine, and a little trill of laughter went With It. "Itoth hands there cut that wait t Al wait good (Sod!" ' On ti nt outwurd swing of the tm peee Mr. Al I'elimo leaped from hi aprlng bonrd wllh the grace of a wild thing, turned hi double somersault tnld-stnc, in mld-nlr, and reuched out for the flower-twined horizontal bar. It swung buck, but too slowly to meet tils straining clutch. Too lute to gather Ills strength agnlnxt a fall, he gyrated for a second in a ghastly simulation of an acrobut, and then with the direct ness of a fowl shot on swift wing, hur tled downward, his legs doubled up tinder him und his neck strained buck ward. -Ugh h-1" A moment of Indecision. A woman In the balcony shrieked and hid her face. Another. The West Wind faint- d back against an Iridescent pillar. The director's baton fluttered, theft waved onward, the music clattering tnanfully after It. A gnome fell weak kneed In her tracks. The curtain si I th awed downward. At three o'clock, with the Immense relet of dead o' night thick as a nroud around them, the watchers be- -adde property couch moved simul taneously. A doctor rose from his stiff jfcneea, his tips pursod and perplexed siaasath his mossy beard. Charley Lee lifted a basin and towel from the floor auMl placed them noiselessly on th fold property table. Miss Lolo Lala ay, her sliver skirts crushed1 to her 'figure, rose from her crouching attitude tt the base of the couch, and beneath tba mask of rouge her little face eeued suddenly as fleshless as the feet ef a bird and slashed with teurs, as if Tain had beat ngulust It. Itnrl My God. Doc, don't you ifcnow yet? You want us to die wait ling, tlo youl Don't you know nothing iyetr "We gotta catch that four-ten train toc,'and she feels ltke before we go wa oughta " .1 "Can't you tell a girl. Doct Ain't ha ver coming to again? Ain't he, Doc? Oh, my Ood. ain't her The doctor snapped his spectacles into a case and regarded her above a remaining pair that straddled his nose naif-way down. Ills voice was delib erate and as slow as treacle In the pouring. "We are going to move him now, young lady. Just as soon as the hospital wagon arrives. Then we caa tell more.'' Fear lay on her face Ilka a death - mask. "Is he "I have set three fractures, but ean't look at that back until wa get sum to the hospital, little lady." "Oh. my God I Ills back lM Mr. Charley Lee smoothed a nervous band up and down the back of bis Clottsed hair. "What she's trying to get at Is this, Doc.

"He will. Doc, wont be? lie will. Doc, for God's sake tell m he surely will." "I won't know bow much, tittle lady, ntll we get him to the hospital, but It looks to me Ilka ba will come around 11 right." "See. Lo ; now go get your duds.' "Oh, my God, Doc. She caught at bis hands In a frensy of suppllance and fell on her knees a huddle at his feet "Just pull him around. Doc. That's all I ask. Pull him around, Doc, and I'll make It up to you. I'll work my fingers to the bone for you. I'll black your shoes and walk on my knees for you. Only don't let hlra die. Doc. For God's aake, don't let him die." The lncoher nee of frenzy muddled her tones. "Aw, cut It. Lo. Don't you see that Docs doing all he can. Go get your duds on, Lo.

She leaned to hlro as If she would lay her heart palpitating at his feet "You alu't mad at me, Al you ain't are you, darling; you ain't mad at me?" Tears rained down her face and ha made to touch them, but bis arm could "No, no, pussy rat I ain't mad. Why should I be mad?" He lolled his head ever so slightly on the pink sateen property pillow and smiled. , "Sure I ain't mad. It was the spring board that didn't work." "Oh, my God." She could have swooned of heartache.

'J:' ompany, which took over 1 win luting k x - iiuie inr , w,io.,, i !, : ti. oA bluu Star-Herald is authority for this th fii,..; o. 4 .1. i velopments in the oil game at that point: It is now stated on good authority that the Big Chief oil well northwest of Chadron, waa "salted." The word "salting" in the good old days of '49 and thereafter, meant that gold in plentiful tiuantities h in the sand of a placer clai quartz containing the precious metal in large gobs, was mixed with the other quartz taken from an otherwise non-productive claim. The next move was to find a sucker and the next to land him. Oil wells can be salted, perhaps not as handily, but nevertheless as suc cessful as a mine, and from reportr. received concerning the recent "strike" at the liig Chief, it appears that fol lowing investigation, there was mostly salt nnd no oil. While much of the matter is hear say, yet it is believed that the com pany originally in charge of the Big Chief prospect well had about gone the length of its financial cable. The drillers had been unpaid for n consid erable time; the iinancial strincencv had made the raising of more money by the side of stock practically impos sible, and there was nothing left to do but shut down the well. Think Workmen Responsible. There is a verv strong KnvrtiViii that workmen, discouraged because of non-receipt of wages and faced with the prosiect of the company giving up efforts altogether, came to the conclu sion that nothing would save the day save to strike oil and strike oil they did. And immediately a different song was sun in inai immediate neighbor hood. The company, overjoyed at the excellent showing at a comparatively shallow depth as western oil wells go, immediately perked up and when ap proached by the Midwest people, who own noiaings in mat immediate vicin ity, asked three million dollars and fifty per cent royalty on the well's production. . . The Midwest folks took a Ions' deen breath and took to the tall and uncut jungles for a time, allowing the local company to think over the matter, and before negotiations were over the or iginal company had agreed to turn the well over to the Midwest for a 10 rwi cent royalty in case the hole proves to. oeMi pronucer. it is also agreed on the part or Uie Midwest that IX the well proves a real one. that the comcanv will sink eight additional wells on the tract, which includes the lanit in which Lben D. Warner, of this city, is in terested in. Following the resumption of work under the Midwest management the well soon "petered out" so far as show ing of oil was concerned and resumed its former characteristics of a drv hole. It was then the suspicion arose that one or two things had occurred either one of the most peculiar oil "pockets" ever known to geology had been encountered or the well has simply been "salted." The former course is possible, but not probable. The latter is possible and from what some of the officials state is very prob able. But whichever is the correct solu Hon, the Midwest people are going ahead with the well and the Big Chief will be made a real test hole for oil in that region. CARD OF THANKS.

Too Much Neighborliness. Wre really feel sorry for Broadwater for she has been trying hard to get ju.st a small portion of her valley roads graded up without so much as a shovelful having been moed. It must be discouraging. But why should the great G-P-C highway, .with eventually will be known as the great north and south roadway, suffer the fate of the North Star route just to be ne:gh borly?

While we are on the road subject we are wondering what the big .dea was to appoint a vice-president and a member of the advisory board from each county through which the high way was to pass. To our knowledge there has never been a meeting of e;ther membership. Whats wrongs anyway, and why aren't the advisory board and the vice president function ing in the interest of the work. Some one in authority in this organization needs a new alarm clock. They've sura slept long enough to have their nap out and there are some chores t ba done.
