RELEASED BY THE UNIVERSAL FILM MAN UFACTURING COMPANY THIRD EPISODE American Blood. The outlaws were thrown into wild disorder as a result of Pedro's feroci ous attacks. A portion of the hut had been blown up, thus forcing him and his followers to retreat behind a rock. Lopez, raging like a furious crater, attempted to send his men after the old slave. But they hesitated. At the foot of the cliff stood the saviour of Liberty still Introducing bis new method of warfare. Every time one of the 'Mexicans attempted to close In on him he reached for another stick of dynamite. He was a terror to behold. In the meantime, the Major and the rangers stood listening to the loud explosions which rumbled through the canyon and echoed far down the trail. They were drilling the rock which had been thrown across the road by Lopez and his men. As they worked the earth at their feet "trembled. "Egads !" exclaimed the Major. "They're blowing up the canyon." "Ton-all .aln't'seen that feller Pedro round here lately, have yer?" asked one of the rangers of the Major. "No, by Gad," replied the rusty old fighter as he swung quickly around. "Where is that dirty old rascal? I'll bet he's sneaked back to the hacienda." "Looks ter me as though he's taken some lunch with him, too," remarked Steve Dudley, one of the bravest men that ever patrolled the border. "There's about a dozen of them sticks of dyna mite mlssln'." "Unless Pm pretty" badly mistaken." Interrupted Bill Lara bee, as he slouch ed over to where the Major stood. "he's makln' all that thunder downJ there in the canyon." With that the Major and a few of the rangers approached the edge of the cliff and looked down, as their eyes searched the depths of the can yon. "By God. there he Is!" shouted Bill as he pointed to the figure of . Pedro far beneath them. At that moment he was standing, poised on a big rock. As they watched him he thrust one hand Into the bosom of his shirt and brought forth a long, narrow object and hurled It wlth all his strength straight at a group of dark figures that hastened to get under the cover of a huge rock. An Instant later another terrible rumbling noise re sounded through the canyon, and, again the ground beneath them trembled, as a cloud of smoke rose upwards. "lie's flghtin' them with dynamite!" exclaimed the Major as he gazed far below. "That's Lopez and his band!" cried Bill. With that the Major and the boys returned to their work and resumed drilling the rock which was almost ready for the dynamite. It was now daybreak. All night long Rutledge -and his men had been drilling, while the Major, tired from his strenuous ride, had thrown him self down on one of the blankets and snatched some sleep. However, Just berore dawn he had Insisted on re lieving the Captain. But. while Rutledge sought to quiet the Major, and rolled himself up In his blanket, he made certain that one of his eyes was continually open. For, he recalled he had an engagement at daybreak to kill a greaser, and he was particularly anxious to keep the appointment. As Rutledge faced the sky thinking of these things his opponent was in his tent, a few feet away examining his sheath-knlfe. His eyes gleamed with hate for the ranger. Just as the sun shoved Its nose above the eastern horizon, - Manuel stepped from his tent. As he did so. Rutledge. who had already seen him. reached for bis knife, and. after stretching his legs walked straight over to the spot where the Mexican .stood. . "Now then. you liver-colored puerco." he said as his eyes flashed Are, "take a good look at that sun rise, for It'll be the last one you'll see around these parts for some time." - Willi a curse. Manuel grabbed bis knife from his belt unci made a lunge t Rutledge. But, the ranger was on Patience. "Be ye also patient." Patience judgeth not another hurriedly. She thlnketh ' no evil, . is not easily pro voked, suffereth long and is kind. Ter tullian personified patience, saying. -She Is the pilot of peace; she for tifies faith, establishes humility, as sists charity, bridles the tongue, re strains the hand, rules the flesh and preserves the spirit. Her countenance is . tranquil and peaceful, ber brow serene, contracted by no wrinkle of sadness' or anger." An Arab proverb bis guard. His powerful strength suc ceeded In keeping the Mexican's knife a good distance from bis breast, al though the wiry devil made thrust after thrust. Finally Rutledge with one strong blow 'sent the knife of his op ponent flying to the dust, at the same time almost taking the Mexican off his feet. . Manuel was now at the mercy of the Captain. The latter walked over to where his adversary stood cringing and- trembling with fear, and . was about to run his knife into him. when a spirit of fair play took possession of him. He threw his knife away and went after blm with his fists. During the encounter Rutledge stumbled over a stone and went tum bling to the jground. The Mexican, with a fiendish grin, fell on top of him and grabbed him by the throat. With a quick Jerk. Rutledge managed to throw him off. and, locked together, they both went rolling to- the edge of the cliff. For a moment it looked a If both would go tumbling Into the canyon below, but " Manuel finally managed to free himself and endeav ored Ao force Rutledge over the edge. But. the Captain grabbed Manuel and hung suspended In mid-air as he en deavored to fight his way to the top egaln. At this moment Liberty, who with Pedro, had made her way to the camp of the rangers, after eluding Lopez and his men, saw the two men fight ing, and, with a shriek of terror rushed toward them, closely followed by the old slave. As she reached the spot. Rutledge I regained his foothold. . Manuel, how ever was exhausted. The Captain. realizing this, fought on until he had the Mexican at his mercy, and then, picking him np he lifted him high above his head and was about to throw him over the cliff into space when a shrill cry attracted his at tention. "Bob! Bob!" She ran up to him and grabbing his arm pleaded for the fellow's life. i "He belongs down ' there with the rest of those yellow dogs." said Rut ledge, meaning Lopez and his band. "But. you don't want his blood on your hands. Bob," she begged. "If he Is what you say, he Isn't worth It." ! "Well, he can thank you for saving his life," remarked the captain as he flung the fellow to the ground. Just then a terrific explosion oc curred, and the little party turned just In time -to see the rock which had blocked the trail, go flying up wards Into thousands of pieces. "Where Is Lopez and his gang?". saked Rutledge as he turned again to Liberty who was greeting the Major. "Lopez and Alvtra have organized 1 & big band of Insurrectos and they aro going to march Into Discovery to night and kill every man. woman and j child I" she cried excitedly. "My God t" exclaimed the Major. "And, there's only a handful of citi zens to resist them." "Isn't there something we can do to help them?" pleaded Liberty. "They're probably well on'thelr way by this time," said Rutledge. "Nostlnos Is fifteen miles from here." said Liberty. "There Is a Cabrero camp there. They are In telegraphic communication with Dis covery and If we ride hard we may be able to warn Colonel Dalton to be prepared." "We will start for that place," said the Major. But, he did not see one of Lopez's men, who had been hiding In the bushes, listening to every word. and crept quietly away to inform bis lender of the Intended warning. As the band, with Lopez riding at their head. left the trail, and turned Into the main road the messenger over took them. Leaping from his horse he rushed up to the leader. "Rutledge and his men are going to Nostinos to Inform Colonel Dalton of our plans," he said. "Ah. ha," grinned the Mexican. "Well, we show them." And he Im mediately ordered his men to dis mount and they made for the bushes, pulling their horses behind them, to He In wait for the little company of rangers, which at that moment was Just starting down the trail. The Major beaded the little column and was followed by his men. Then came Rutledge riding beside Liberty, with Pedro riding bareback. Upon reaching the end of the trail they were greeted by the report of a rifle and one of the rangers went tumbling out of the saddle. Instantly the Major gave the command to fire In the direction of the bushes. Then the fighting began In earnest. While the bullets were raining all about them Liberty, who had taken up her position beside Rutledge and aided him In emptying his cartridge belt, ran over to the Major. "I am no good here," she said. "Let me ride to Nostinos." The Major pondered a moment. Then, he suddenly turned and facing her replied: "My dear. It Is too dangerous a ride for you to take alone." "You have nothing to fear. Major." she urged. Then, as she meditated an Instcnt. "Til tell yon fll take Pedro with me." reads, "Be patient, and the mulberry leaf will become satin." "He that be iieveth shall noWnake haste" to judge bis fellows by appearances. Ex change. . . "Saving at the Spigot.'' An example of good Intentions as re gards weighing, but most unintelligent methods In executing them, was noted In a plant where considerable high grade steel valued at $2.75 a pound was being used for the finer "parts by machine. According to the program. I This proviso won over the Major and he ordered Pedro to ride ' wttn Liberty to Nostinos. "And, mind you," he said seriously, as he eyed the slave. "I shall hold you to account If anything happens to her." Hiding behind a rock, not far dis tant. Lopez with . one of his men, was closely watching every move of the trfo. As he saw Liberty and Pe dro start towards their horses he turned to his man ; "Don't let her get away," he said. "Take two others with you." A little later as Liberty and Pedro started down the road, three Mex icans mounted their horses and fol lowed some distance behind. While this was going' on Rutledge was safely lodged behind a huge rock as he kept up a constant fire at the sombreros as they popped up above others. Once, as he was reloading bis gun, Manuel, who had not yet re covered from the severe battle with the ranger, levelled his own rifle straight at his rival and fired.' The bullet tore the gun out of Rutledge's hands. The Major, who had been watching the Mexican, ran np just as Manuel was starting to fire a . second time, and. swinging from , the hip knocked him cold. He snatched up his gun, and, as Manuel staggered U. bis feet he blurted out: "I'm watching you. you coffee-colored skunk. And If you try that trick again I'll have those rangers shoot you." Liberty and Pedro were now some distance from the rangers' and riding their horses hard towards "Nostinos. Soon after they left the camp Pedro had discovered they were being pur sued. He pointed out the figures of the approaching Mexicans to Liberty, who was able to distinguish their out lines against the skyline. A : she rode on her thoughts were busy.- Those Mexicans must be checked somehow. Finally, as she turned a bend in the road and they disappeared from view, she conceived an idea. On either side of the road were some big trees. Dismounting she took. the lariat from ber saddle and made one end fast around the trunk of a tree. Then she . stretched It across the road, and drawing it taut, tied it to the' branch of another. Leaving Pedro with a gun she then remounted and rode on. A few minutes later the Mexicans rounded the curve, one man slightly behind the rest. The first two. al though they saw the rope, were unable to pull up their horses, and, strik ing the rope, they were thrown from their steeds and went tumbling to the ground. The third saw It, ducked his head and rode on. As the other two started to climb back Into their saddles Pedro opened Are on them. One- dropped. ' The second was Just about to raise his gun when Pedro fired again and he fell to the ground. dying. Then Pedro jumped on his horse and started after Liberty. Finally the camp of Cabrero came Into view on the side of Nostinos H'U. Just as they reached the camp Pe dro saw the Mexican in front of him raise his gun, aim It at the girl, and fire. She dropped the reins and fell backward unconscious. . With one dash Pedro reached the side of the Mexican and grabbed him around the throat and they both went to the ground. But Pedro was on top. Liberty's horse, feeling himself free, dashed forward and raced Into camp with the limp form of his rider hanging helpless from the saddle. (TO BE CONTINUED). Success. Success that Is worth anything caUHt be earned, must be waited patiently for before It Is won. Our foremost men In every department of civil, 6f professional, of commercial, of literary life are gray-haired men.

Through the years they must work on steadily, persistently, constantly, un der scorching suns, during long and weary days, along dusty and crowded thoroughfares, till the knowledge they have gathered and the experiences they have gone through. have time to pass into wisdom.

Wine In the Scriptures Is spoken of under four aspects. -First, social, that as Illustrated by its ''use at the mar riage In Cana. We must not, however. confuse this wine with the spirituous. strong drink of this present day. Sec ond, medicinal (Prov. 31:6-7; I Tim. 5:23). These passages do not com mand us to use it as such, and God has very graciously revealed to us in modern medical research the futil ity of the use of alcohol in the matter of medicine as a remedy. Third, sacri ficial wine (Matt. 26 : 27-29 ; Luke 22 :17 20), and, fourth wine is spoken about as productive of the woes of men (See Amos 6:1; Heb. 2:15; Prov. 23:20). It is also mentioned by way of contrast (See Epb 5:18). The Scriptures speak of drunkards In four different ways: (1) They are to be stoned (Deut. 21 :20) ; (2) Drunk ards lead to poverty (Prov. 23 :21) ; (3) Drunkards are to be separated from other men (I Cor. 5 :11) ; (4 they are to be finally separated from God (I Cor. 6:9). Abstinence from strong drink is en joined in the Scriptures under three heads: (1) the priest and Nazarite (Num. 6:3; Luke 1:15) ; (2) the ruler (Prov. 31 :4) ; (3) those who are to worship Jehovah (Lev. 10:3). This particular lesson is taken from a portion of Isaiah's prophecy where he is anticipating what is about to hap pen to Samaria, and uttering his warn ings unto Judah. I. The Steps of Intemperance. First, Disgrace and Dishonor (v. 1). The city of Samaria is compared to a chaplet of flowers on a drunkard's brow, which shall be trodden under foot because of his inebriety. Drunk enness seemed to have been so wide spread as to' become a national sin. Second, Disease and Degeneracy (v. 2). ! The pride of beauty spoken of in verse j one is to "fall to the earth." This I glorious beauty was after all only a "fading flower" (I Pet. 1:24). The coming of the Assyrians upon Samaria is described in a three-fold way: (1) As. a "tempest of hail ;; (2) as a "de stroying storm ;" (3) as a "tempest of mighty waters overflowing. The thought contained is that of wide spread and overwhelming destruction. Back of this work of devastation and destruction and desolation was the wrath of God against sin (Ch. 2:4-9). All earthly pride shall be trodden un der foot. Samaria, "a fading flower," was to be greedily eaten up by the on coming enemy. . . II. Those Reached by Intemperance. Strong drink causes men to err in their conduct, in their moral Insight; in their judgments. It reaches the beautiful (v. 1) ; It reaches the learned (v. 7) ; it reaches those in authority; in fact all classes. It leads men to the depths of degradation and to the loss of their wills (v. 8) ; it makes men to become beasts, wallowing in their own vomit. Not only Samaria, but "these also" (w. 7 and 8), that Is people of Jeru salem have erred through wine and strong drink. Even the priests and the. prophets had and do so now (See Ch. 56:10-12; Micah 2:11). The priests were especially inexcusable because of -the plain directness of God's word (Lev. 10:9-10; Ezeklel 44:21).- The result of their intemperance was that they utterly failed in their official acts. They reeled In vision and stum bled in judgment. The use of wine and strong drink made their social gatherings filthy and disgusting. Tem perance is the habit of abstaining from everything that destroys. It is the con trol and right use of God's good gifts for service. Intemperance is lack of control or the wrong use " of God's gifts in self-indulgence. I III. The Lesson in Contrast. Jeru salem vs. Samaria-. Samaria's crown of pride "was not the glory of God. Its beauty was a fading flower (v. 4), his wisdom contemned through the ignorance of Samaria (w. 6, 7, 12), his strength versus their weakness and wickedness . (vv. 6, 13). . God- teaches by - contrast as well as by direct precept. Verses nine and ten may be taken as a mocking answer of the peo ple to God's prophet. Isaiah intimates that the time to begin our instruction is In childhood (v. 9), that precept must be upon precept, and line upon line, here a little and there a little. There never Is a time when we can'let up in this struggle against the mighty evil of Intemperance. Take as a reply (v. 9) this would seem to Indicate that God took them to be babies just weaned. If the prophet, himself. Is the speaker, then Jehovah is represented as teaching knowledge to babes and not to the self-sufficient. It Is these whom be "makes to under stand bis message" (It- V. ). and the method of bis teaching Is precept Upon precept,' "If we will not hear God's loving and patient coll to repentance, he will speak to us through cruel ene mies.

A conjuror perforimng at a local theater got on a street car with two members of his company, and after a while, moved by some sudden impulse, he pretended to find sundry quarters, stooping her and there, and producing them from under the seats, on the floor, anywhere, to the amazement of the passengers, says the Toronto Mall. His two friends laughted heartily at the Joke. Not so, however, the conduc tor, who came forward and sternly de- -manded the twelve 25-cent pieces he had "picked up," in order that he might hand them over In accordance with the regulations governing lost property found in the cars. In vain did the "finder" protest that It was only a conjuring trick. The conductor obviously did not believe him. And in the end, In order to avoid a compulsory visit to the police Station, he had to give up the coins. . Matches Illuminated Town. In a Midland town a number ot persons were fined for striking matches in the streets on the night of an air raid. The offense may appear to be a trivial one on the face o it, but it is really not so, says a writer in Flight. In a recent series of visibility tests with certain kinds of light It was noted that on a dark night, the light of an ordinary match was easfty visible at a distance of a mile. Hostile aircraft do not, as a rule, fly at as low an altitude as a mile, and oo the basis of the test just noted the striking of a single match would be without Import. But, according- to. the evidence of a police superin tendent, although the street lamps were all extinguished during the raid, there was almost as much light as though they had been lit, owing to peo ple striking matches to light pipes and cigarettes.
