IF INDUSTRIAL PREPAREDNESS Hon.

Granted that the dancer of foreign attack has been greatly maiini r . 1 i t A P S .-ncq, in part, no uouut, irom ignorance, auu. in pan, irom a uiw. ti to create scrvicable alarm; nevertheless, the plan rests upon uie en- v tirelv reasonable assumntion that it is unsafe for our nation to conn i " upon unlimited immunity from attack. Import nut as would be tho - sible danger from, without constitutes an essential ground tor the m auguration of the scheme. If, therefore, the possibility of such an at ' tack is honestlv contemplated, our preparation must enbrace more . ,t , . ft than a consideration of the army and navy s needs. There is no fttjfc. escape from a consistent answer to the urgent demand tor our own 1 merchant marine; and mere is no question tnai nie uiea qi essemiai j-self-dependencc presents our tnneworn tan ft discussions in an en- :' tirelv now aspect. To be consistent, the Democrats will have to modi. .fy their attitude upon both these national questions." During the month of December the administration spent f;,0."(i.52:i more than it took in. That was almost $200,000 per day. Not nearly so bad as the record for some previous months, and, in fact, pretty ...good for n Democratic administration. -t There is a widespread teelniK that the scalps ot a number ot .Mex ican generals elevated on high poles would make the most attractive jr-decoration that coul.d, possibly be erected along our southwestern boundary, Tjhe. Jjactj that t,he politicians can till any job without any experi ence of, the work, convinces many of our thinkers that you can get a ; modern army without training any soldiers.

Itclyln;,' on Irvlug's regard for their mother, itobcrt showed that ho wns not afraid of niiy (lis closure. Worse than nil. n too friendly and officious frlcud of Kthel Porter hasten ed to bring the tidings to bcr. At the Drst word Ethel iut her (hirers on the friend's lips and said: "X, cnu't believe It of Irvhijr. He Is true to me." Hut the sight of tbc newspaper head lines and tho sensational story con vinced her that Irving had been fulso to. her. That same evening he rule over to, call upon her mid was met with cold scorn. In vain be protested to her that ho was Innocent, but his loy alty to his brother prevented him from naming the real culprit. t.tuel, blinded by wounded pride. would not see, nnd tho meeting of the two ended in the return of the engage ment ring. That night Irving sat long hi bis room with his beloved vlollu. Now high, now low. sounded the notes of tbo music played by n master bund, voicing the passion of nnger justly roused or the quiet mood of despair. He breathed his very soul Into bis mu sic. Only one friend. John Kent, proved bis faithfulness to Irving nt this try ing time. In his trust Irving found consolation. "Duck up, old man!" said Kent, n bluff, hearty Englishman, somewhat older thnn Irving. "They'll all know some dny that Kolton had no cause to suspect you. And Ethel will bo sorry sUo threw you over." Uut tho weeks pusscd, und Ethel did not relent, even when she met Irving nt a gay house party on the Thames bank given by n mutual friend. Among tbo other invited guests wero Irving and Robert Randolph, .Mr, and Mrs Kclton nud John Keut The gay Mrs. Keltou was soniuwhnt subdued sifter tbe scene In the restaurant, hut she re tained enough of her vivacity to smile at Robert when her husband's hack was turned. Kelton did not see Hob. but turned his head Just in time to atch Irvlng's eyo and glare nt that unocent young man. Ethers face showed traces of her. mental suffering, hut she would not listen to Irving when ho tried to plead with bcr. "You have betrayed my confidence," she nald. "nnd I cannot trust you again." "Hut. Etbel, 1 have sworn to yon thut you urs mistaken: Hint I am Inno cent. Von alwajH believed lu uio In tho past What more can I say to you than I bavo said?" "Mrs. Keltou was lu tbo restaurant with some one other than her hus band," said Kthel. "Ho found you. there. If there was any other man. who wus hoi" Again tbo loyally to tho family immo checked Irving. "If you will not taUo my word that I am innocent It will bo of no uso for mo fo try to convluco ou," ho said sadly and turned awuy to rejoin the party ou tho lawn, while Kthel sought forgetfutuexs In 11 com fortable armchair nud 11 book. Song und talk and merry cbnfT tilled tbo pretty sceno on the luwu. Robert, for alt his faults, knew how to make himself agreeable and was the life of many a group, Irving, tall and nth. letlc, thoughtful and nomrwbat re served, was hardly less popular. Tho courses of tho brothers generally lay far npart, but they swung together in n fnr corner of tho grounds, whero ft group of men were testing their skill nt target shooting. Tho rnngo wns long, nnd nt tho far ther end wns n small hill info which went the bullets which misted tho target In the shooting party wero some good shots; both Irving and Rob ert wero skilled with tho rllle, but tho former lind devoted more time nnd attention to revolver shooting, nnd ho had attained high proficiency with the shorter weapon. lilt after hit evoked applause. Tho guests shot' lu turn, nnd ns thero were many desirous of trying their skill nnd ns Robert and Irving wero Into In Joining the shooting pnrty, it was some , tlmo beforo their turn to shoot cninc, , Robert flitted from group to group, ex changing comments on the merits of the marksmanship displayed. Keltou was not numbered In tbo fdiootlng party. Ills tastes did not lie in thnt direction; perhaps tbo monodo which he affected nnd which was con tlnunlly falling from his right eye af fected his aim. Resides, he had nccn slou to keep not only both vyes. but also tbc monocle on his vivacious con . sort. The little woman could not re strain her propensity tnwnrd lllrtatlon, Her favorite subject. Robert Ran dolph, having escaped for tho nonco from her wiles, she cast about for nn' other victim. Hut, unhappily, she chose a time when bcr husband wus watching her, nnd her merry talk nnd glnuces did not escape him. As had been thu case so many times lu the past, her conduct led to a violent quarrel. "First there was that Randolph fel low; now it's tills chap. This will have to stop." ho warned her. nud for tho thousandth time she denied any wrong doing nnd quarreled with her husband. It ended, as It always dkl, in his leav Ing her und going for n wnlk to cool oft his rage. Ills way led him back of the rifle iitnw. Oblivious to his surroundings, (ousclous only of his ungcr against his wife, Keltou wnlked on. There was u little squabble in tho group nt the range, now reduced to Irving, Itobcrt und Kent. Selfish and Inconsiderate as ever, Robert Insisted 011 shooting first, und thus It came about that It wns Irvlng's turn Just ns Keltou appeared behind the head of tho range. Through the shrubbery his form was dimly visible. It wns hard' ly perceptible one could barely see thut something wus there, without dis cerning tbe details. John Kent's quick eyo caught It first. As Irving pulled the trigger Kent exclaimed: "My God!" Uut it wns too late. Irving had fired, nnd tho bullet sped past tbc target into the heart of James Keltou. no whirled about and felt, dying Just ns Kent and the brothers rushed to him. "You've killed him. Irving!" snid Kent Into tbe heart of Robert Randolph entered an evil, fratricidal purpose. Keltou killed Irving accused of will ful murder convicted on the damning evidence of the quarrel hi the restuu rant he himself, Robert. In possession of tho family cstntcs "Well, you've done It. Irving," he said. "What do you menu. Rob? Do you mean to sny that I shot him Intention ally?" "It looks that way. You did It de liberately, nud I'll not lie to save your life!" The words roused Irving from tho half trance lu which he stood. With an oath bo rushed nt his brother, and before Kent could drag him otT ho had choked Robert bait to death. In his rago lie would have made himself real ly guilty of murder hud not his friend by mntu strength dcigged him off. Hy this time the alarm had spread among tho members of tbe gny house party. Thero were hurrying to and fro and talk In whlnpcrs nud the dis patch pf servants. Only 11 few min utes passed beforo tho body of James Kclton wns borne to the house, tho hysterical widow wns led nway by friends, und tbo party broke up. Throughout tho horrors of those few minutes Kent stood stendfast nt tho Hide of Irving Randolph. lou must get awuy from here quickly!" he said to thu young man. "It looks bad for you. Come, wo will go to tbo stables!" Before tbe stablemuu knew of tho tragedy ho was summoned to saddle lu haste tbc best horse he lind for Irving. Kent saw to It nil. He advised Irving where to go nud whnt to do. He emp tied his pockets of cash. Ho helped Irving to mount. He saw that tho young uinn rode away like the wind, itcfore the omccrs of the law In the neighboring couuty seat knew of Kel tou's death Irving Randolph was far 011 his way to the nearest seaport, to catch a steamer bouud for Australia. He Htopeil at n little town cu route to change his clothing, sell the horse and make all tho hitii;es In his per sonal appearance his few precious hours permitted. He bought a mon ocle and practiced many hours In tho art of holding It In his eye, confident that Its adoption would help lu his dis guise. ITortuuo favored him. Ho reached port Just In time to catch a steamer bound for the autlpodes. Fortmiate ly tho vessel was not equipped with wireless, and she was out of reach be foro tho alarm roached the seaport. Irving Randolph, Innocent of Inten tional wrongdoing, remembered with horror by his friends, all but tbo faith ful Kent, nnd by Ethel Porter, tho girl ho loved, wns bound for Austra lia. Hack in England remained tho sorrow stricken mother nnd tbo faith less younger brother. To Dob wns in trusted tho care of tho cstato by Mrs. Randolph. "You aro all I havo left now, Rob ert," she said to him. And with black deceit In his heart, Robert Randolph, knowing his fugltivo brother to bo In nocent of the crime charged against him; lied to his mother, saying: "I will tnko enro of tho property nnd of you, mother." He meant to contlnuo his evil course, now thnt Irving, formerly tho chief obstnclu In his pnth, was removed. The bush country In tho "back blocks" of Australia Is dcsolnto terri tory, fit for neither man nor beast. In Us unexplored wildernesses are many places wherein n daring outlaw may hide and defy tbe law. All he needs Is n speedy horse, n steady sent, a good eyo for rlflo or revolver, lncx haustlblc endurance- nnd n detcrmlnn tlon not to bo taken. Another thing is requisite, n faithful partner. All of these things Irving Randolph acquired within n few months nftcr landing In Sydney nnd proceeding to the interior of the Island continent IIo felt himself nn outlaw, nn Isbmnel with every man's hand raised against him, nnd ho wns embittered by the injustice of ills cxllo nnd condemnn tlon. Ncwspnpers told him of his convlc' tlon In the eyes of the public nnd the law. no could return to England only with a noose nbout his neck, and this ndded to the bitterness of the war with which he preyed on tbo Interior settlements of Victoria and New South Wales. Honest pursuits wero not for him He feared that ho would be recognlz ed, apprehended and dragged back to England. Within a short time the exploits of "Stlngaree," ns ho called himself, and his chum Howie, eclipsed tho notoriety of Thunderbolt, Ned Kelly, Morgan nnd Ren Hnll nud the other "bush rangers" or highwaymen fnmous In Australian history. Stlngnrcc saved his chum Howie, the big, black beard' ed man, from tho police, nnd thence' forward the rough, swearing, ruthless outlaw wns his devoted follower. The name nnd fnmo of Stlngnreo spread throughout Australia nfter his .first holdup of n stagecoach.

Stlngaree made it a cardinal point of his policy never to tnko huniau life. Ho Impressed the sumo view ou tho ruthless Howie. Ho was a highway man and robber, but he tin w the lino at killing, even lu self defense. Strange ns It may seom. Stlngnreo, most during und most hunted of out laws, never forgot his music.
