for her. I begged liiui uot to go. fui
the girl was In eouipauy with a Chi

But the fellow made no objections,
and Jack succeeded him. Whether this
had anything to do with what followed
I don't know, but I have always sus
pected that It had.
Tom and 1 roamed the town alone,
looking in at the shop windows, taking
In one or two shows, and when tired
lounged In the tropical gardens, though
the perfume of the flowers was rather
sickening to me. Finally we conclud
ed we'd better go and look after Jack.
We started up from the gardens
where we were sitting at the time and
went out into the streets. We hadn't
proceeded far before we saw Jack
coming toward us. When we met we
saw at once that he had been taking
aboard more spirits than was good for
him. He began to tell us Very noisily
what a flue time he had had- He had
soon parted with the girl, who couldn't
speak a word of English, and Joined a
party from the ship who were having
a fine spree.
All of a sudden a policeman appeared
and, drawing a swordi hit Jack witii

I knew very well that there was but
one chance for Jack. If we could run
him to the shore, get him Into a boat
and out to the ship there might be
some hope of getting him out of the
scrape without serious consequences
Quick as flash 1 seized one arm
Tom, following my coe. ^seized the
other, and we set off as rapidly as'we
could get jlttck on for the place where
we knew the boats to be.
After turning a corner 1 released
Jack's arm and shouted, "Ran, Jack
run for your- life!" If be hadn't- been

it was the policeman signaled for asii

That night was a distressing one for
all onr crew, aud, us for Jack, It only
remained for liiui to prepare for death

they would not pay auy attention

any other nation.
Not a ink did I sleep that night
anil when It was light enough for me
to see was semiring the harbor In the
hope Unit some sort of a fighting ina
chine hail come in during the night
But I was disappointed. The waters
were em irely bare of guns.
The condition of our crew was har
rowing. W wanted to tight and hud
nothing to tight with. To permit one
of our number to be shot to death
a lot of Spanish American undersized
bloodthirsty rascals well nigh threv
every man of us into spasms. We got
together in knots, and tmiuy were the
foolhardy plan.s that were proposed to
save our comrade's life. But as time
wore 0:1 and the hour appointed for
the execution approached an awful
sense of our powerless position settled
down upon 11s and stunned us.
Early in the morning I was made
the bearer of a uote from our captain
to the consul The captain dared not
leave the ship for fear of some m6ve
on the part of the men which would
not only lie hopeless, but get lis into
more trouble. I was the only man of
the crew to go ashore. While I was
at the consulate a crowd was gather 1
lng in a field in rear of the house to
witness tile execution. What the note
contained 1 don't know, but on readlnp
it the consul shook his head.
At that moment I saw the British
consul, whose bouse was opposite
come out to raise the British flag. He
stood looking at the crowd in the field
and I saw the British bulldog Indig
nation rising in him at the murder
about to be committed. With the flap
still in his hand lie came across the
street and, approachng the American
consul, said to him:
"You're not going to let them shoot
that man, are you?"
"What can I do?" replied the coijsu 1
despairingly. "I have protested against
the act. 1 am powerless to do more/'
Meanwhile Jack had been marched
out. and a firing squad was taking posi
tion before him.
"Give me your flag!" shouted the
English consul. And In another too
ment the stars and stripes were clutch
ed lu his hand with the union jack.
Then hurrying across the field, 1 and:
our own consul following him, we saw
him elbow his way through the crowd
and run up to the prisoner. The next
instant the United States Sag was
folded around Jack's broad shoulders,
and Immediately after the blood red
banner of Great Britain was placed
over It. Then the consul who had
done this, standing a few paces back,
faced the firing squad and cried de^
"Now shoot If you dare through the
heart of England and America!"
This was too much for the dagos. If
the moral power of the United States
did not scare them that of the two
most powerful nations on the earth
and, what was more to them, on the
sea was more than they dared defyij
Then, too, this combined moral powerf
was displayed In a" way to give It full:

goats is being successfully demon
strated on (lie Lassen national forest.
In California, where rhey are cutting
trails for Ore guards through the
brushy areas on the slopes of the
mountains. The animals, which num
ber 3.000. have been divided into two
bands and under the care qf the herd
ers are grazed within certain well de
fined areas, so that their work may be
concentrated on the brush .within
those limits.
The result is,that they have practi
cally killed nearly all the brush in the
course, either by eating It up entirely

heavy manzanlta bushes. -At the be
ginning of the experiment there was
some doubt as to the goats' willing
ness to eat the manzanlta. but It has
been found that where there is little
else they will just as readily attack
It as any other bushes.
The grazing season was so late this
year In the Lassen forest that the
goats did not begin operations until
about the middle of June, but since
then they have made rapid progress,
and the result promises to be a suc
cess from every point of view.
The trails will first be opened and
then kept free of sprouts by the goats,

Heat In Cows.

catching certain cows In heat. Some
animals do not come In heat regularly
and show scarcely any slgnis when the
period Is on. A healthy coW should be
In heat once In three weeks and during
the period is excitable, falls off In milk,
and shows- many other unmistakable
symptoms. The only course open where
a cow does not show signs Is to try her
once or twice week for at least three
weeks. If she falls to show during this
time, wait a week or two and repeat
the program. It often ba'ppehs that
cows will not breed from one cause or
another. There Is no remedy, so far as
we are aware, that wilt aid materially
