Frank Baum Q, *Jjt" The Scarecrow Wins the Fight When the Nome Kins so angrily blew his shrill whistle, the army mmediately filed out of the gold ind silver doors in great numbers, and marched up a winding stairs and into the throne room—led by a stern-featured Nome, who waff their captain. When they had near ly filled the throne room, they form ed ranks in the big underground cavern below, and then stood still until they were told what to do next. Dorothy had pressed back to one side of the cavern when the warriors entered, and now she stood holding little Prince Evring's hand while the great Lion crouched tJpon one side and the enormous Tiger crouched upon the other side. "Seize that girl!"" shouted the King to his captain, and a group of warri ors sprang forward to obey. Bat both the Lion and Tiger snarled so fiercely and bared their strong, sharp teeth so threateningly, that the men drew back in alarm. _ "Don't mind them."", cried the Nome King; "they cannot leap be yond the places where thev now stand." "But they can bite those who at tempt to touch the girl," said the captain. HI enchant them again, so that they can't open their jaws." He stepped out of the throne to do this, but Just then the Sawhorse ran up behind him and gave the fat monarch a powerful kick with both wooden hind legs. Murder!

They | paused, astonished, at sight of the ! warriors and the angry Nome King, | seated in their midst. "Surrender!" cried the King in ' a loud voice. "You are my prison : ers." j "Go 'long!" answered Billina, from ; the Scarecrow's shoulder. "You I promised me that if I guessed cor rectly my friends and I might depart ]in safety. And you always keep jyour promises." "I said you might leave the palace jin safety," retorted the King; "and ;so you may, but you cannot leave !my dominions. You are my prison ' ers, and 1 will hurl you all into my underground dungeons, where the j volcanic fires glow and the molten lava flows in every direction, and the air is hotter than blue blazes." "That will be the enTl of me, all I rifiht," said the Scarecrow, sorrow j fully. "One small blaze, blue or green, is enough to reduce me to an J ash heap."

Billina whispered something in the : Scarecrow's ear that made him smile ; and put his hands in his jacket ; pockets. j "No!" returned Ozmo, boldly an swering the King.

Republic Dealer Gives Spectacular Service iii P -£r rt . 0f J; he , po ' icy of the Repub. ] ' c . Motor Truck Company, of Alma, i Michigan, is to render good service to owners of its trucks when they are'in need of service. How earn estly this policy is carried out by . individual dealers was illustrated a j few days ago in spectacular fashion | A Republic owner called on the I dealer in Grand Rapids. Mich., for j certain parts. His truck would be out of commission until the parts I could be procured from the factory it so happened that they were tem | porarily lacking from the local stock, although an express shipment ■ ""'as then enroute from the factory.

Rayburn. the local Republic [ distributor, located in Grand Rapids : an airplane which was not then en- I gaged, and inside of ten minutes, I was winging his way through the air | toward the Republic factory at Alma, Mich. This trip was made in a little over an hour, and before a : fast train could have made the run I one way. the dealer was in Grand Rapids witty the needed parts. In consequence, the Repub ' He truck was again, in service the I same day. saving many valuable | hours for its busy owner. HXRRIHBCR G TELEGH3EFH her army: ■'Forward, my biave soldiers, and fight for your Ruler and yourselves, unto deathi'" "Pardon me, Most Royal Oznta," replied one of her generals; "but I find that I and my brother officets all suffer from heart disease, and the slightest excitement might kill us. If we fighr we may get ex cited. Would it not be well for us to avoid this great danger?" 'Soldiers should not have heart disease," said Ozma. "Private soldiers are not, I be lieve, afflicted that way," declared another general, twirling his mous tache thoughtfully. "If your Royal Highness desires, we will order our private to attack yonder warriors." "Do so," replied Ozma. "For-ward—march!" cried all the generals, with one voice. "For-ward —march;" yelled the colonels. "For-ward—march!" shouted the majors. "For-ward —march!" com manded the captains. And at that the private leveled his spear and dashed furiously upon the foe. The captain of the Nomes was so surprised by the sudden on slaught that he forgot to command his warriors to fight, so that the ten men in the first row, who stood in front of the private's spear, fell over like so many toy soldiers. The spear could not go through their steel armor, however, so the warriors scrambled to their feet again, and by that time the private had knock ed over another row of them. Then the captain brought down his battleaxe with such a strong blow that the private's spear was shattered and knocked from his grasp, and he was helpless to fight any longer. The Nome King had left his throne and pressed through his war riors to the front ranks, so he could see what was going on; but as he faced Ozma and her friends the Scarecrow, as if aroused to action by the valor of the private, drew one of Billina's. eggs from his right jacket pocket and hurled it straight at the little monarch's head. It struck him squarely in his left eye, where the egg smashed and scattered, as eggs will, and covered his face and hair and beard with its sticky contents. "Help, help!" screamed the King, clawing with his fingers at the egg, in a struggle to remove it. "An egg! an egg! Run for your lives!" shouted the captain of the Nomes. in a voice ofVorror. And how they did run! The war riors fairly tumbled over one another in their efforts to escape the fatal poison of that awful egg. and those who could not rush down the wind ing stair fell off the balcony into the great cavern beneath, knocking over those who stood below them. Even while the King was still yell ing for help his throne room became emptied of every one of his warriors, and before the monarch had man aged to clear the egg away from his left eye the Scarecrow threw the second egg against hia right eye, where it smashed and blinded him entirely. The King was unable to flee because he could not see which way to run: so he stood still and howled and shouted and screamed in abject fear. ■While this was going on, Biilina fie.v over to Dorothy, and perching herself upon the Lion's back the hen whispered eagerly to the girl: "Get his belt! Get the Nome King's jeweled belt! It unbuckles in the back. Quick, Dorothy quick!" Dorothy obeyed. She ran at once behind the Nome King, who was still trying to free his eyes from the egg and in a twinkling she had un buckled his splendid Jew eled belt and carried it away with her to her place beside the Tiger and Lion, where, because she did not know what else to do with it, she fastened It around her own slim waist. Just then the Chief Steward rush ed in with a sponge and a bowl of water, and began mopping away the broken eggs from his master's face. In a few minutes, and while all the party stood looking on, the King re tained the use of his eyes, and the first thing he did was to glare wickedly upon the Scarecrow and ex claim: • "I'll make you suffer for this, you hay-stuffed dummy! Don't you know eggs are poison to Nomes?" "Really," said the Scarecrow, "they don't seem to agree with you. although I wonder why." "They were strictly fresh and above suspicion." said Biilina. "You ouglit to be glad to get them." "I'll transform you all into scorpions!" cried the King, angrily, and began waving his arms and muttering magic words. But none of the people became scorpions, so the King stopped and looked at them in surprise. "What's wrong?" he asked. "Why, you are not wearing your magic belt," replied the Chief Stew ard, after looking the King over carefully. Where is it? What have you done with it?" The Nonte King clapped his hand to his waist, and his rock colored face turned white as chalk. "It's gone," he cried helplessly. "It's gone, and I am ruined!" Dorothy now st?f>ped forward and said: "Royal Ozma, and you, Queen of Ev, I welcome you and your people back to the land of the living, Bii lina has saved you from your trou bles, and now we will leave his dreadful place and return to Ev as soon as poss'ble." While the child spoke they could all see that she wore the magic belt and a great cheer went up from all her friends, which was led by the voices of the Scarecrow and the private. But the Nome King did not Join them. He crept back onto his throne like a whipped dog, and feat 6 y cm <>aning his de- f WW I , e „ hav e not yet found my faithful follower, and Tin Wood man." said Ozma to Dorothy "and without him I do not wish to go away. b ,*•" replied Dorothy, quickly: Wasn t he in the palace?" •w le r be t , here -" said Biilina: but I had no clew to guide me In guessing the Tin woodman, so I must have missed him." •We will go back Into the rooms." said Dorothy.

I.—Demands that provision drivers receive from $lO2 to $245.50 a week were among those made yesterday by 500 inside butch ers in what was denounced by Adolph Gobel as the first step in a "Bolshevist" movement to take over his plant in Brooklyn. Mr. Gober, who announced he had closed his doors temporarily after the butchers had gone on strike, said he was "in formed by an insider" that the unionists planned, after accomplish, ing their purpose by a series of strikes, to nllow him six per cent, on his investment and divide all profits over that amount among themselves. This strike was said by Mr. Gobel to be primarily an effort to force drivers and outside salesmen to join the union.
