HOW NIGHT RIDERS WORK Members of the ''Emolre Invisible" Who Have Kept Kentucky at War. The night is dark, heavy, full of se crets. The old school house stands in the clearing; brightly lighted; the door is open, throwing a cheery beam into the Kentucky woodland near at hand. Inside sit the farmers graybeards and youths, holding a "lodge" meeting. What lodge? The local branch of the Burley Society. They are talking. The one wrd "tobacco" is heard over and over again. They discuss prices, con ditions. You might catch references to "equity" "nool," and "trust." It is an ordi-rly meeting which transacts legitimate business and adjourns. After which all the peaceable members drive o tlnir homes and sleep with good consciences. But later another meeting convenes in a wooded bend of the road near by. Dark forms glide up through the un derbrush. Men with handkerchiefs around their faces up to tht-Ir eyes' make signs to each. .other, lien who had taken an oath, with both hands at their necks, and a rope hanging by as a threat to traitors. Suddenly a whisper in the dark: "Silent Brigade!" the password. "Yes; on bended knees." The coun tersign. A man with a white handkerchief knotted into his coat lapel and pinned to his right shoulder passes the sen tinel. Behind him comes another with a scarf crossed upon his breast the captain. An ominous whisper runs among the leaves. The silent moni tors of the "Empire Invisible" gather about their chief. They bring" out horses from the brush and mount. Some carry spades and hoes; others partly filled sacks; another a can of kerosene. They all have their shotguns. A half mile farther they draw rein. "Sow for the first ," says the leader. They conceal their horses and climb the fence into a man's field. "Where's his plant beds'."" "Here, Cap, behind the stables." A plant bed Is. not much larger than a mattress. Each sweep of the hand with salt lessens the tobacco crop by a thousand pounds. Kerosene does just as well; or the hoe. "The man with the hoe" has a meaning in Kentucky never intended by painter or poet. He also is a popular figure in the indutsrial parades, says Eu gene P. Lyle, jr., in Hampton's Mag azine for February. "Xo more plant beds?" asks the captain. Xo." "Then Where's that 196 tobacco he's got?" "In the second barn. Cap." On the way one of them drops Paris green in the watering trough. The leader works over a tmttle in the dark. The captain hands the bottle to one of the men. who steals into the barn with it. The bottle is a fire-trap. It contains potash, sugar and sul phuric acid. The bottle, being turn ed down, the acid eats through the cork in two days. Then, contact of the stuff with hay or litter will set the barn on fire. "Mayn't we even throw a scare Into him?" pleads the holligan. "If you are not afraid." says the "Here"' and hands him a B. Salinas, one of the many men hereabouts who is known among the Mexicans by the nickname of "El Sar co," and another Mexican, who is one of many of his countrymen known by the sobriquet of "El Mocho," are in jail, charged with robbing a third paisano named Stanislaus Trujillo. There is still doubt as to the identity of the prisoners, but it will be soon determined, one way or the other. There is no doubt concerning the mis fortunes of Stanislaus Trujillo, who will be here next Tuesday to identify the prisoners if he can. Trujillo is an industrious Mexican, who has been employed for some time by the Houcks at Cave Creek. On Wednesday he got a little vacation and. having accumulated $115, he came to town to do a little celebrating. He first" bought a watch, then he bought a little corn juice and then some more of it. He found himself among friends, weighted with wealth and watches and popular .beyond compare. A little later he "came to" in the county jail. He had no money, he had no watch, he had no friends, he had no hat, and he had no shoes. There was mighty little that he could lay claim to except a headache and an unmistakable appreciation of an affinity for It. K. Morse. He was able later on to do a little systematic thinking and, after due reflection, he told the officers that he recalled "El Sarco" and "El Mocho" as being two of his most familar friends the night before. One of the nicknames applies to a man who has lost his fingers or his hand, the other to some other phy sical defficiency, the names being fre quent among the Mexicans. Deputy Sheriff tlea managed to pick up a "Mocho" Thursday night that seemed to fill the requirements, and yesterday he found an "El Sarco" who looked like he might pass muster. In the meantime Stanislaus Trujillo has been taken to Cave Creek to re sume his humble pastoral life, where he could eat whether he had money or not, and. incidentally, where he could be found when wanted.

A BETTER REPORT Mrs. B. A. Fowler received another telegram yes terday from Los Angeles, announcing that her1 mother's- condition was greatly Improved, and to wait for a letter. She therefore changed her plans for leaving last night. From an artistic point of view, at least, the Wylie concert given at the Elks theater last night was a decided success. The program had been care fully chosen and was charmingly ren dered, each number, seemingly, being a wee bit better than the rest. The principal figure was, of course, Ramona Kollins Wylie, who is tffe bride of the noted Wylie, the violinist. Mrs. Wylie was palpably nervous in her first number, but that wore off as th evning progressed, until she sang with perfect ease. Her voice is pure mezzo of great dramatic quality and purity of tone. She is not only a singer of great promise, but has the temperament that pYoclaims the true histrionic talent. It will be. a strange thing if Mrs. Wylie does not eventu ally turn to the operatic stage. After her first number, in response to the vigorous encore, she gave Carrie Ja cobs Bond's "Just A-wearyin' for you," in a delightful manner and with all the expression that the au thor herself could have put into it. The Schubert "Serenade" was beau tiful, more especially as Mr. Wylie played an obligato for it. This was the last number for Mrs. Wylie and she bowed in vain to the repeated en cores. She finally sat down to the piano and sang Jno. Metcalfe beautiful lit tle sonnet, "Absent," playing her own accompaniment. Metcalf was a close frlerul and teacher for her when she lived in Oakland. Wylie played exceptionally well. Ho possesses wonderful technique and is the master of his violin. The "Fan tasie Appasionata" was beautifully rendered and a rare treat, as was the Beethoven selection. Professor J. Homer Grunn played the accompani ment, and tha't is an accomplishment few soloists possess. Good accompa nists are few and far between and Professor Grunn is one of them. His solos were much enjoyed, particularly the "Etude in Sixths," one of his own compositions. All the numbers were liberally applauded and most of them encored, the artists being very liberal in that respect. Mention must be made of the Vose piano used, which was loaned for the occasion by the Redewill Music com pany, and added to the enjoyment of the evening. It Is a pity there were not more listeners, for it was a treat seldom heard in Phoenix, and a mental feast for music lovers. GONE TO TACOMA Mrs. E. I.. Bumpus left last night for Tacoma, Wash. She has been contemplating the visit for some time, but had not expected to leave so soon. Her mother, Mrs. T. O. Hall, is seriously ill, and the telegram announcing the fact is the reason for Mrs. Bumpus' hurried departure. our. ' Dm Says I: Ask .YourjDruggist The great army of iAnvennr druggists' are mighty Intelligent andwejleducabedjmen. They know trTpropectfeSit-drugs and medi cines, and have experience with ail ikinds of troubles, which people come into the store to ask relief for. So their practical knowledge's very ' valuable, and their advice is worth a great deal to all sick people. If you know your druggist well enough to ask his advice for your female trouble,' do so, and he will tell you that thousands of women have written letters, telling of relief obtained from taking Cardui. In his experience; he has heard and read of many cases of female weakness which have been re lieved or cured by Cardui. So, when you ask his opinion, he will not offer a prescription, but will probably say: "Take Cardui."- And you will do well to follow his advice. ' Cardui is advised in all the common forms of womanly trouble, due to disorders peculiar to females. It has been found to relieve or ' prevent head ache, backache, side ache, dragging sensations, nerv ousness, irritability, irregularity, and general female weakness and misery. Many thousands of sick ladies have been re stored to health, by the use of Cardui,' and have written to tell of the good it did them. Cardui is composed of pure, vegetable ingred ientshence has no harmful effects, like many mineral compounds. It acts gently and naturally, is good for young and old, and 'Should be in every lady's home, even if not an invalid, to take during her bad days. What others, who have tried Cardui, say about it, should surely be of interest to you, as showing what you may expect It to do for you. Hence this letter from Mrs. Temple Clark, of Timberville, Miss., one of the thousands who have written in similar strain, will, we hope, be read by you. She says: "Cardui has been worth more to me than a carload of silver. M.S. TEMPIE ClAKK. Timberville. Mum. If it had not been for Cardui. I would have been dead. I love a dollar, but 1 have never seen one that I think as much of, as 1 do of a bottle of Cardui. I now keep It in my house, as regularly as I do coal oil or coffee, and have done so for years. "Some years ago, I jumped off a horse and had a mishap, and for about 4 years after that, I suffered intense agony, irregularities, bearing-down pains, etc. At last I was in duced to try Cardui, which cured me, and now I am well and happy. Cardui will cure other sick- "I am sure that ladies as It has me." Cardui is carried, as a standard remedy, on the shelves of all reliable drug stores. Your druggist will recommend it, and will gladly sell you a bottle, with full directions for use, on the inside of the wrapper. If in doubt, ask him.

It" Tsl Ik CARDU LL 4 Two Services Yssterday But None To day Two Services in the Elks' The ater Sunday. The third day of the Dixon meet ings shows an unmistakable deepening of interest. The afternoon service drew a good audience, and every one was richly repaid for coming. Or. Dixon's address was sweet, tender and strong. A plea for faith in prayer was drawn from the story of the Syro-Phoenician woman. With a maniac child In her home she went to Jesus on the strength pf hearsay and pleaded with him for help. The story is an illus tration of the trial and triumph of faith. "Be unto thee even as thou wilt" was the Master's final response to her prayer. Something in her atti tude enabled her even to command God. The characteristics of her faith were emphasized and illustrated with thrilling effect. It was first, a faith without promise. She was a Gentile. The promises were to the Jews. Her faith went past all written or spoken promises and fixed itself upon the very character of God. It was faith in mercy. She did not ask for Jus tice, only for mercy. There is no mer cy In natural law, only Justice. Through Christ alone is it possible for even God to be at once merciful and just. She believed in spite of the si lence of God. He answered her not a word. She believed without the help of others' sympathy. The disciples said, "Send her away." Her faith made its appeal with renewed earnest ness out of her distress. When all seemed lost she still lifted up her hands Jo Jesus. Even when He seemed to deny her. she worshipped Him and would not let Him go. Real prayer is need packed so tight that it takes fire. Your extremity of need is God's op portunity of grace. God can not only make the light drive away darknes, but He can make the light shine out of the darkness. Even wheh her faith was humiliated and she was likened to the dogs of the street, faith found its final argument and secured its tri umph. Though she had no claim, she was willing to take the portion of the outsider, the crumbs. God answers such prayers. If we bring our trou bles to God in such a spirit our prayers will be answered abundantly. The evening audience at the Dixon meetings at the First Baptist church was an inspiration to all interested. It filled the auditorium and the Sun day school room, many being present for the first time during these services. Dr. Dixon took for his text the story of the conversion of the Philippian jailer and his topic was: "What Is It to Be Saved?" Laying the emphasis upon the word "saved," he said not to be educated, for salvation is more than education: not to be reformed, for ref ormation i3 not salvation; not to be cultured only, is salvation. Salvation implies the incoming of a new life through Christ Jesus. Have you the life of God in your soul? Salvation is first of all a great his toric fact. Jesus came into this world, lived a holy life, worked miracles, healed the sick, taught the truth, suf fered, died, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. Whether you believe this thing or not will not af fect the facts in the least.. The his toric facts of the life of Jesus abide whether you believe or not. The resur rection of Jesus is one of the best at tested facts of human history. The resurrection of Jesus gave the world its present calendar: we date our daily letters from the day he rose from the dead: it gave us the Sabbath day, the Lord's day which we observe. Jesus did not command his disciples to keep the first day of the week. Its observ ance came from the power of the res urrection. Second, salvation as a historic fact becomes a sudden experience. Nega tively, it involves repentance: posi tively, it involves faith. What is re pentance? It is taking God's side against sin. King Saul fought God on the, side of sin and wrecked his career, ruined his life and died a suicide. King David committed unnameable sins, but when convicted, repented and took God's side against his own sin and confessed his wrong. Out of his broken heart came the penitential psalm. This sudden experience is with som accompanied by stress and agi tation of the soul, like the earthquake experience of the jailor With others it is calm and quiet, like the conver sion of the Ethiopian eunich. It is not the way you turn to God and against sin, but the turning that is essential. Salvation as a historic fact becomes not only a sudden experience, but, further, a gradual process. It Is a crisis with a view to a process. The new life grows, develops, struggles up ward unto perfection. The story of the conversion of General O. O. How ard was related with profound effect as an illustration of the power of Christ to reach a strong, intellectual young officer in the army. Dr. Dixon then told of the conversion of John Wood, a missionary to the sailors in New York, as an illustration" of an opposite type a drunkard, a discour aged, down and out man, ready to commit suicide. Christ is able to save all classes and conditions of men. Salvation is Btill further a glorious prophecy. Oliver Wendell Holmes stood with a German gentleman upon the top of the Alps and. turning to ward Italy and Rome, he raised his hat and said. "Glorious Past, I salute thee." The German, turning toward the Fatherland, removed his hat and saluted a glorious Present. But the Christian has the privilege of stand ing upon the Mount of Calvary and saluting an Infinitely more glorious Future. When Paul speaks of death it is described as a "departure" the term is nautical and implies the lifting of the anchor, the spreading of the sails and the sailing out into the boundless ocean of grace. On Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock Dr Dixon will preach in the Elks' the ater; also at the same place in the evening at 7:30 o'clock. The public in general is cordially invited to at tend these meetings on Sunday. The services on Monday will be appropri ate to the dav Washington's birth day. There will be no service on Saturday. 230 E. Washington St. Phone Main 3. THIRD AVENUE THEATRE TONIGHT i THE STREETER-BRYAN CO. PRESENTS "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Reserved seats at Larson's Drug Store.
