Wa can't stay here —and It's getting late." Winifred was anxious. She knew from the country that they were a, long way from home, and on an un frequented road. Moreover, she had Hiioplcd Richard Harris’ invitation for a motor ride with misgivings. She did not like him, uud said so; but her family hoped for a marriage, and bad instated on her being at least nice to him. So she bad resignedly said “yea” hen he asked her to go with him. During Hie ride lie had nut made him self offensive u> her In any way; hut she was nervous. The prospect of a long time spent with him on a de scried road did not hold out promise of pleasure. "t'nn’t you do something}’’ she asked. "I'm afraid hot—Winifred 1” She started at the tone of his voice. It seeinud that her worst fears were realized. Sin* tried to stop him be fore he got started. "Now, Dick, I've told you that 1 don't love you and can't love you. You know you've asked me many times, and I've always said no, and always will. I’m sorry, for I don’t want to hurl your feelings; hut that's ail there is to It.” "Winifred, 1 know you're just teas ing me—-lending me on. I love you, and I'm going to have you—” Before she could struggle free from the robes he had caught her In his arras and was frying (o kiss her. “Eel me go!” she cried. "Y’ou cad!” One arm came free and she planted a stinging slap on his face. His eyes darkened with rage. “you’ll pay me for that!” he ground out, and tried to seize her again; hut j "Let M: Gc!” She Cried. • hand Hint seemed made of iron closed on his coat collar and wrenched him om of the ear. He fell to the Kt'uund. Over him was standing a man I knew. "Billy Vanllne!" Winifred’s voice was ft*M of thankfulness. Butvßilly looked aiy at the prostrate man at his feet. "Gel in,t o( here!” he snapped. Richard Harris rose. "1 1 won't leave Winifred—" "Aon have forfeited any right yon ever had to lie .with her. Oet out I I'll bring the cur home. Go. now, be fore I—" But Richard Harris was already slinking away. He had no stomach for a battle with ihc husky Billy. When he had disappeared Wini fred's overstrained nerves gave way and she sobbed unrestrainedly, Billy, like the wise man that he was, let her have her cry out and then gently let her tell lllm the whole story. When she .had finished he flushed a dark red. “The low hound!" he said between his teeth. Then he added: “T,et me look at the oar. Possibly I can fix It so we can stagger home somehow." He made her comfortable on the sent and went around, to the front-of the car. For awhile she heard him tinkering. Once he asked her where the screwdriver was. Her face lit with hope. , “Con you fix It. do you think?” "I don’t know —hut I’ll try."

HANNAH & CO. | H STURGIS, MISSISSIPPI :*} EilOD NOT PIRATE And His Treasure a Fable, Says Archivist. Massachusetts Authority Asserts That Lord Bellomont Was Arch Ssoun drel—High-Placed Adventurers. _ Song and story are wrong. Captain Kidd was not a pirate and bis fabled treasure does not exist. Privateers man lie was, but of good repute. His hanging as a pirate and murderer on execution dock at London in 1701 was to satisfy the political exigencies of the time. These are the findings of John H. Edmonds, stale archivist for Massa chusetts, as announced In a lecture at the old South Meeting house. Archivist Edmonds was discussing "Lord Bellomont mid the pirates.” Bellomont, he said, was appointed governor of New Ragland In 1093 with a special mission to suppress piracy. "Before leaving England.” Mr. Ed monds contended, "he agreed with Capt. William Kidd, a privateersman of good repute from New York, to proceed against pirates In a ship called the Adventure, galley, on a 'no enpture-no-pay' basis. The adventurers included Captain Kidd, Robert Liv ingston, Lord' Chancellor Somers, the egrl of Oxford, first lord of the ad miralty; the earl of Romney, and the duke of Shrewsbury, secretaries of state; Bellomont and the straw men, to whom the king’s grant of treasure was later made, dld_not contribute n cent. “fin September 6,,l 1696, with a ‘crazy’ vessel and a crazier crew, Cnplain Kidd proceeded on his mis sion," the .archivist said. “He picked, up several pirates,” Including “a Moorish ship of 200 tons and a Ben gal merchantman of 500 tons, both fnl PJ&Sff" . > He came to New York and then to Boston "through the trickery of Bello mont. who promised him safe cod- Outjt. With tile remnant of his crew he; was arrested, sqnt to England, tried for murder and piracy, convicted and hung .on Execution duck Friday, May 2.1. 1701, to satisfy the political ex igencies of the times. ■Tt was either Lord Bellomont. the lord chancellor, the first lord of the tldmlr'Alty. the secretaries of state or Captain Kidd, and under this clrcum tt(U.lSß lit had tm chance,. Collusion I and perjury are plainly evident Ini his trial; the French passes which would have cleared him of the piracy charge, though produced In paallament, were suppressed In the Admiralty court. The least said about Belloraont’s ac tion In the matter the better. He fooled Kidd, he fooled his council, and the worst of It Is, he allowed It In his letters to the lords of trade. "The Captain KlOd of today Is a composite pirate made up of all who frequented our shores from 1637 to 1837. Propaganda of the worst kind blackened the reputation of a man of whom a recognized French author ity says: Tt may be well doubted whether any man In equally trying elronmstnnces has ever been truer to his trust.’ “And yet the great American public persists in calling Captain Kidd a pirate and In searching for his treas nre, which does not exist." “Boy” Behind the Voice. A business man who was in a great hurry culled up an establishment that had failed to deliver goods as ordered. A liny boyish voice was heard at the other end of the line: "What Is It that you wish?” “Mr. Jones, boy, and hurry." “All right," and the receiver was hung up. In a few minutes It was taken down and the small voice re plied ; "Mr. Jones Is not In. Can I help you?" “See here, boy," snapped the man who was In a hurry. "I want to talk with someone who can do business. When 1 need the office boy 1 will call for him. The way for you to get along Is to let the other things alone and attend to your own duties." “That’s what I am trying to do,” meekly said the small voice. “I am the president of the company."—Phil adelphia Ledger.
