Lum Dim tells the prison offi cials that he wants to be getting on. In that land where the wicked cease from troubling he believes his enemy the man he killed Is making friends. And the murderer fears that these friends will keep increasing and will make it hard for him when he arrive alone.

It is not likely that they will grant Lum Dim his wish; more likely that he will be adjudged in sane, for only insane men make such requests and have such vi sions as are his, the authorities say.

However, the army here is not in active, according to a number of re ports, and troops will be ready to de part soon after orders are issued.
