All the rest of that day the hunter ith the terrible gun lay hidden In e bushes of the pasture where he j uld watch for Lightfoot the Deer leave the place of safety he had und when he swam across the Big Iver. It required A lot of patience on e part of the hunter, but the hunter d plenty of pat'eiee. It some ;es seems as if hu iters have more tience than any other people, "ut this hunter waited In valr lly. rourd, red Mr. Sun tank dow i the west to h:? l-ed behind ;hr ?urple Hills. The Black Shadow, ept out and grew blacker. One b; e the stars began to twinkle. Stll le hunter waited, and still there was o sign of Lightfoot. At last It be ame bo dark that it was ncolcas for 'ie hunter to remain lonijrr. Disappointed and once snore becom es angry, he trampaU Lick ;?> the 31g River, got into hia boat, and i-owod across to the other side. Then ne tramped home and his thoughts | were very bitter. He knew that ho would hare shot Lightfoot had it not been for the man who had protected Lightfoot. He even began to sus pect that this man had himself killed Lightfoot, for he had been euro that as soon as he had become rested Lightfoot would start for the woods and Lightfoot had done nothing of the kind. In fact, the hunter had not had so much as another glimpse of Lightfoot. * The reason the hunter had-been so disappointed was that. Lightfoot was smart. He was amart e- ough to un derstand that the man, who was" sav ing him from the hunter had done I' because he was a true friend. Al" afternoon Lightfoot had rested on r. bed of soft hay in an open shed and had watched this man going about, his work and taking the utmost car. to do nothing to frighten him. "He not only will let no on* else harm me, but ha himself will no ' '.larm me." thought Lightfoot. "Ar long as he is near I am safe.. I'll stay right around here until the hunt ing season is over, then I'll swln back across, the Big River to my ; home in the dear Oreen Forest." So, all afternoon Lightfoot rested ; and did not so much as put his nose i outside that open shed. That Is why I the hunter got no glimpse of him.

But at the first hint of the coming of another day Lightfoot turned back, and when his friend the farmer came out early In the morn ing to milk the cows there was Light ; foot back in the open shed.

Your Houses or Apartments For Sale or For Rent Should Bo Listed With Lee D. Latimer Co. 1434 New York Ave. Franklin 610S Main 8567 DECREASE IK BUILDING MINSK NOTED, New Work Drops From 70 to 50 Killions a Week, Straus Says. That there has been considerable f&Uinr oil in building operations since November 1 throughout tho country is the statement of 8. W. Straus. New York banker. He declared that at the present time new construction work throughout the country is going forward at the rate of approximately $50,000,000 a week. During the months of September and October this work amounted to 170,000,900 a week, while the volume of contemplated projects remains in excess of $80,000,000 a week. "While pressure for housing accom modations of all kinds is growing more acute, labor troubles, shortage of materials, physical limitation of the building Industry and the lateness | of the season," he said, "appear to preclude the possibilities of greater activity at this time. "The growing demand for new structures, both business and house hold, Is reflected in a constant in crease in rentals, and it appears that this condition will continue through out the ensuing year. "Gross building and construction operations in the United States show large increases over former normal periods In points of money invested. During the first ten months of the current year these operations were in excess of $2,250,000,000, which was twice the amount expended during the same period of 1916, our last normal pre-war year. In point of ac tual new construction work of all kinds these figures cannot be said to reflect a great amount of increased improvement, as labor and other building costs have increased tre mendously since 1916. Furthermore, the demand for space has gained steadily as a result of business ex pansion and increased population, so that the housing situation the coun try over is Just as acute as it has been at any time, notwithstanding the increased expenditures for new construction."
