"Correct place," approved Kent, quiet Iy shifting his weight to his left foot "It s tho seat of human courage. Weill' ns Schlager tapped pocket after pock ot without result, "you can't say didn't warn you. Now, Frank 1" With the word there was a sharp spat as the heel of Kent's heavy boot, flying up in the kick of his own de vising, caught the sheriff full on tho wrist, breaking tho bones and sending tho revolver a-spln Into tho darkness. As instantly Sedgwick struck, swing lng full armed, and Sch lager went down, half stunned. "Pin him, Frank," ordered Kent in a low tone. But Sedgwick needed no directions. now mat rcsoiuto action was tne or der of the moment His elbow was already pressed into tho sheriffs bull neck. Schlager lay still, moaning a Utile. "Good work, my boy," approved Kent, who had retrieved the revolver. "Who clubbed me?" groaned tho fall en man. "I didn't seo no third feller. And what good's It going to do you anyway? There you are. and there's tho robbed grave. Exaggerated by as sault on an officer of the law," he add ed technically. "That is right, too, Kent" added Sedgwick, with shaking voice. "What ever we do, I don't see but what we are disgraced and ruined." "Unless," suggested Kent with mild toned malice, "we rid ourselves of the only witness to the affair." A little gasp Issued from the thick Hps of Len Schlager. But be spoke with courage and not without a certain dignity. "You got me," he admitted quietly. "If it's klllln', why. I guess It's as good a way to go as any. An officer murdered in the discharge of his duty." "Xot so sure about the duty, Schla ger," said Kent with n change of tone. "But your life Is safe enough In any event Pity you're such a grafter, for you've got your decent points. Let him up. Sedgwick." Believed of his assailant's weight Schlager undertook to rise, set his hand on the ground and collapsed with a groan. "Too bad about that wrist" said Kent "I'll take you back in my car to hnvc It looked after as soon as we've finished here." "1 s'pose you know I'll have to arrest you. just the same?" "Don't bluff." retorted tho other care lessly. "It wastes time. Steady! Here comes the rest of tho party." Across the moonlit lawn moved brisk ly the spare, alert figure of the owner of Hedgerow house. Ills band grasped a long barreled pistol. He made straight for the grove of graves. With in live yards of the willows he stopped, because a voice from behind one of them had suggested to him that be do so. "I also am armed." the voice added menacingly. Hesitancy dickered In Mr. Blair's face for a brief moment Then, with set jaw, he came on. "Two men of courage to deal with in a single night. That's all out of proportion," commented the voice with a slight laugh. "Mr. BJalr, 1 really should dislike shooting you." 'Who are you?" demanded Mr. Blair. Chester Kent" What are- you doing on my prop- erty at this hour?" Digging." Ah!" If was hardly an exclama tion; rather, It was a contained com mentary. Mr. Blair had noted the ex humed casket. "You might better have taken my offer," he continued after n pause of some seconds. "I think, sir. you have dug the gravo of your own career." "Thnt remains to be seen." "Schlager: Are you there?" "Yes. Mr. Itlnlr. They've broken my wrist nnd got my g'lii." Who are they?" Francis Sedgwick Is the other, at your service." mmv?red the owner of that name. An extraordinary convulsion of rage distorted the set font 11 res of the elder ly man. You:" he cried. "Haven't you done enough without this?" CHAPTER XV. The Turn of the Game. S' TRIOKQN with amazement at the hatred in tho tone, Sedg wick stood staring. But Kent stepped, before the advancing man. "Tuls won't do," ho said tlrmly. "Wo can't any of us afford killing." "I can," contradicted Mr. Blair. "You would gain nothing by it. If ono ot us is killed the other will finish tho task. You know what I am hero for, Mr. Blair. I purposo to open that coffin and then go." "No," said tho master of Hedgerow house. And it was twenty years ago since his "no" bad been overborne. "Yes," returned Chester Kent quietly. Mr. Blair's arm rose, steady and slow, with the Inevitable motion of aiaciluarx. "If you shoot' pointed out Kent, "you will rouse tho house. Is there no ono there from whom you wish to con ccal that codln?" Tho arm roso higher until U10 mm 7.I0 of the pistol glared llko a baleful histories cyo Into Kent's faco. In- "Open your-ayes! t-ookl Lookl" cried Kent stead of making any counter motion with the sheriffs revolver tbo sclen tlst turned on his heel, walked to Sedgwick nnd handed him the weapon. "I'm going to open the coffin, Frank," ho announced. "That .pistol of Mr. Blnlr's is a target arm. It has only ono shot" "True," put In Its owner, "but I can score 120 with It at a hundred yards." "If ho should fire. Frank, wing him. And then, whatever happens, get that casket open. That is the one thing you must do for me and yourself." Sedgwick stepped to within two paces of Blair. "Blair," he said, with a snarl, "you so much as think with that trigger finger and you're dead!" 'No; no killing, Frank," counter- manded Kent "In bis place you'd perhaps do.ns he Is doing."

The doctors who troatad me made me believe that my great suf ferings were due to female trouble. I was so bad at times I would faint away and bad sinking spells. Fin ally a now dootor was called in and he Bald that I had kidney trouble and gave me medicine, ot which I tooK several bottles. I obtained some relief from this but I was get ting weaker all the time;. I could not sleep and sullered so muoh pain that my husband and children had to lift me in and out of bed. After tbtB time two frlendu sent me word to try Swamp-Boot, which I did, and I am glad to state that the first ose gave me great relief. After taking the third dose I was helped into bed and slept half of the night. A tooK several bottles of Swamn- Root and I feel that I owe my Ife to this wonderful romedy. The two family doctors said that I could not live ttireo months. I would have to be helped in and out of bed ten or twenty times 'every night.
