The Montpelier Examiner has dis- an
covered a "missing link" in the Lin
coin Highway, which is the stretch
from Granger to Montpelier, via Opal
Kemmerer and Cokevllle, which
stretch it asks to have improved so
that the extensive travel may be di- a
verted to the Yellowstone and the
great Northwest from Granger. The
Examiner very likely refers to the
Central Oregon highway, projected
over this route, a full account of
which was given in The Republican
of November 25 last and not the Lin
coin Highway, which has been sur

an extremely good one, except when
snow is heavy. Most of the road
mentioned is already under state

Barton Baynes began life loving
Sally Dunkelberg and he ended it
the same way. Always the source
of his inspiration and Joy, Bart
climbed to the dissy heihts of success
for her. Her smile helped him over
the rough places and her love pro
vided the light in the clearing that
showed to his goal.
When Bart's mother and father
died his Aunt Deel and Uncle Pea
body made a home for him with
them. He grew up with Amos Grim
shraw, son of the tight-fisted money
lender who held all the farmers of
Ballybeen in his power. Then the
day when Bart made a friend of the
powerful Joe Wright, who urged the
boy's guardians to let him come to
the town for his education.
Came the day when he met Rov
ing Kate, the Silent Woman, who
played with dolls and told fortunes.
Kate prophcsised four perils and a
future of fame and success for Bart.
Death and the gallows were written
in the palm of Amos Grimshaw.
Money was Ben Grimshaw 's God
and his son had inherited the lust.
One day the elder Grimshaw drove
his son out into the world to search
for gold. That night Bart Baynes
met The Stranger. There was ano
ther traveler on the lonely road and
it happened that the three came to
gether. Bart saw the flash of a gun
and saw the stranger drop to the
road. He saw the assailant come
up and bend over the body. Then
with all the srtength of his youth
he hurled a stone which struck the
assailant on his temple.
When theq brought the body back
to town, the Silent Woman came
with the others to see. Then she
fell rostrated with grief.
Stranger was her son.
One day certain bits of evidence
brought about the arrest of Grim
shaw's sou. Bart had seen the boy's
face on the night of the murder, and
now the scar where the stone had
struck seemed to seal the youth's
fate. The croaking of Roving Kate
would come true. Death and the
gallows for this boy.
Bart had already passed three of
his perils, and the fourth now con
fronted him.
man saved him—saved him so his
testimony would hany the son of the
man she hated. What a ruthless
hate, and none but Joe Wright und
erstood the why and the wherefore.
Things were coming to a pretty
pass in Ballybeen, and Bart Baynes,
late of the town of Llckltysplit, was
caught in the maelstrom of events.
His testimony convited Amos Grim
shaw. Roving Kate came out, bent
on the steps when the trial was over.
Ben Grimshaw came out, bent and
beaten, with the bony fingers of the
Silent Woman pointed into his face.
With a snarl of rage GrimBhaw
sprang at her, but be stumbled and
fell to the ground. The Silent Wo
man had pointed him to his death.
The father of the boy whom Grim
shaw's son had slain, ended his mis
spent life.
