"One comes!" he says. "Ssh! Ze woods here have been many times set in flames. We have suspect these be done with intention." "How? Why?" I ask, whispering to his whisper. "Ze forts," he says, softly, staring keenly down the narrow path among the trees. "Ze trees have act as a mask. We have suspect zat spies have set ze lights. We watch, mooch One comes ver, near. Hark him! You stay here when I go challenge." "You see him?" he asks a moment later. "Zere by ze couiver*. Ssst He ceased his whisper abruptly and we both bent forward together. A hundred yards down the narrow path, among the pines, a man in a work man's blue blouse is standing, looking quietly in every direction. Suddenly he takes a couple of steps in among the trees, and for a few mo ments I cannot see him but the soldier lurns to me and signs for absolute si lence, laying his forefinger on his lips, his eyes shining. He begins to tiptoe down among the trees, keeping a few paces away from the path. I am following. As we go down, a step at a time, noiselessly on the pine needles, these sounds a very soft whistle below, which is answered THE FARGO FORUM AND DAILY REPUBLICAN, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 2i 1914.

The sol dier makes a queer, excited gesture, throwing up his left hand to make £*ure that I do not move. I hear the sound now, a soft and cautious scrap ing of earth. The sentry begins to go forward again, and suddenly we open out a vista, long and narrow, among the treeB, Seeming far away, perhaps 200, perhaps 250 yards down hill, a figure is lying on its stomach. Its face close to the earth. Near to the head there is what appears at this distance to be a small box. "Arre!" mutters the soldier under his breath, and slips down onto his face behind a big pine, waving frantically with one hand to his rear for me to do likewise. The sound of something scraping softly at the earth continues. It is now on our right front, and, suddenly, I sec the man we have already seen. He is about forty yards away, kneel ing down. He is lifting something which looks like a narrow slab of stone. He is stooping now into some cavity which he has just laid open. Ha takes a pair of wiree cutters from his pooket, and I hear the snick dis-, tinetly as he cuts through something in the cavity. The sound catches the hearing of the soldier and he glances to his right swiftly. I hear the half-hissed "arre!" again as he sees the second man. Then sud denly he pushes his rifle forward and there comes a slight snicking sound. I thrill with a vague sickness, for I know that I am going to see a brief glimpse of the war horror there among the hushed sunlight.and the shadow of the tree boles. Far down the hillside, at the end of the narrow vista among the trees, the second man has suddenly risen. So utter is the silence that I can hear him plainly as he coughs. He begins to haul on something:, and I realize sud-«. denly the meaning of the whole inci-i dent that I am watching. The twoi men have located the underground pri vate telephxme wire going up to the fort.

Kouri, natives ,of the Orient and expert rug men to assist us in showing this beautiful assortment of meters of wire bodily after which, no doubt, they will replace the slabs which cover that roof in the under ground channel and smooth back the* earth and pine needles over the two disturbed places. Then it may be a week before the trouble is located and remedied and much may happen in a week! The soldier is methodical. He takes the distant man first. Kneeling there behind liim, I watch with a growing thrill and tension of tragedy and sick ness his sunburned cheek cuddle against the stock of his rifle. Then, very slowly, it seems to me, in that quiet, dreadful moment, his stubby, cigarette-stained forefinger crooks back gently, gently on the trigger. It Is horrible to kneel there behind him and relaize that cigarette-stained finger is literally the crooking of death to the man down the long vista of trees. "Cr-rack!" comes the sharp, snap ping bang of the weapon, and the man down the vista of trees gives a queer little jump, and then turns right around quickly and looks behind him. And, thus looking, and seemingly un aware that he is the person who has been shot, his heart stops, and he rolls over quite easily and gently on his side—a merciful enough death, as these violent deaths go. For some of them are so dreadful! And then, as I start, the rifle goes "cr-rack" again, and I jump for I an still looking at the silent figure dowp. the vista of trees. But the soldier has been attending to his business and has snapped off a second shot (less well aimed than tho first because of the sudden need ct haste) at the nearer man for the man had started to bolt. And because th1 shot was hastily aimed the secon I death is as cruel as the first was mer ciful.

Some few farmers now are on a paying basis, many more are not, and with almost a certainty that increased of ferings will cause a material cut in prices, it looks as if those who paid from SIO.OOO up for a pair of breeders had best go very carefully.
