(Continued from Yesterday) In ipitc of tiiu cheering tarn his for- j tunes had teken, it was in no very ami able mood that he left her at last no whit the wisec for all his questioning. In the hotel lobby below he encounter ed the newspaper reporter who had fallen under Fraser's spell upon their first arrival from the north. The man greeted him eagerly. "How d' y' do, Mr. Emerson? Can you give me any news about the fish eries?"' "Xo." "I thought there might be something new bearing on my story." , "Indeed! So you are the chap whe Krote that article some time ago. eh? "Yes. sir. Good, wasn't it?" "Doubtless from the newspapc? point of view. Where did you get it?' "From Mr. Clyde." CHAPTER XL LYDE! You mean Fraser Frobisher, I should say," gasped Boyd to the reporter. "Xo, sir. Alton Clyde! He was pretty talkative tbe night I saw him." The reporter laughed meaning- ly. ' "Drunk, do you mean?' "Oh, not exactly drunk, but pretty wet. He knew vrhat he was saying, however. Can't you give me some thing more?'' "Nothing." Boyd hurried to his hotel. & prey to mingled anger and contrition.

It was quite in keeping with the fellow's pe culiar temperament. As it happened. Boyd found the two men together and lost no time in acquainting them with his discovery. "I've come to apologize to you," he said to Fraser. who grinned broadly and was seized with a sudden abash ment which stilled his tongue. Emer son turned to Clyde. "Why did you permit me to do this injustice?" "I I didn't mean to give out any secrets I don't remember doing it," Alton apologized lamely. "You know I can't drink much. I don't remember a thing about it. honestly." Boyd re garded him coldly, but the young man's penitenqp seemed so genuinehe looked so weak? so pitifully incompe tent, thatthe other lacked heart to chastise him. It requires resistance to develop heat, and against the absence of character it is impossible to create any sort of emotion. "When you got drunk that night you not only worked a great hardship on all of us. but afterward you allowed me to misjudge a very faithful man," declared Boyd. "If you can't keep a close mouth and do as you are told you'd better go back to Chicago." "Don't climb any higher," admon ished "Fingerless" Fraser. "He's all fluffed up new. I'll lay you 8 to 1 he 'don't make another break of the kind." "Xo: I was so com-cussed-pletely pickled that I forgot I even spoke about the salmon canning business. I'll break my corkscrew and seal my flask, and from this moment until we pome out next fall the demon rum and I are divorced. Is that good news?" "Everything is a joke to you. Isn't it?' said Boyd. "If this trip doesn't make a man of you, you'll never grow up." As if Hilliard's conversion had mark ed the turning point of their luck, the partners now entered upon a period of almost uninterrupted siccess. Boyd signed his charter, securing a tramp steamer then discharging at Tacoma; Bait closed his contracts for Chinese labor, and the scattered carloads of material which had been lost en route or mysteriously laid out on sidings be gan to conte in as if of their own ac cord.j A brigade of orientals and a minia ture army of fishermen had appeared as if by magic and were quartered in the lower part of the city awaiting shipment At the dock one throbbing April evening the Bedford Castle berthed, ready to receive her cargo, and the two men made their way to ward their hotel, weary, but glowing with the grateful sense of an arduous duty well performed.

"It does," agreed Emerson. "We ought to clear in four days that'll be the 15th." "It smells like an early spring, too," the fisherman observed, sniffing the air. "If it is we'll be In Kalvik the first week in May." "I'm off to tell Cherry," said Boyd. His course took him past Hilliard's bank, and when abreast of it he nearly collided with a man who came hurry ing forth. In the well groomed, fiery haired, plump figured man Emerson recognized the manager of the North ! American Packers' association. "Godd evening, Mr. Marsh." Marsh whirled about. "Eh? Ah! Why, yes. it's Emerson." Marsh informed Boyd of the anger of Mildred's father at his canning en terprise and also that Mildred and Mrl Wayland were to visit Kalvik on a yachting tour. Emerson was great ly amazed at this information; also he realized that Marsh had arrived on the spot because Hilliard had granted his opponents their needed loan. The men separated. - The next morning Bait rushed in on Emerson with news that the laborers loading the Bedford Castle had gone on a strike because the captain, Peas ley, rightly refused a demand of $2,000 by the union. f "It's Marsh again," said Big George. "Yes," Emerson answered; "it's a holdup pure ;and simple." A look of intense anxiety came into his eyes. When Boyd returned some two hours later he found the dock deserted save for Big George, who prowled watchful ly about the freight piles. "Well, did you fix It up?" the fisher man inquired. "Xo," exclaimed Boyd. "It's a rank frame-up, and I refused to be bled." "Good for you." "There are some things a fellow's tnanhood won't stand for. I'll carry that freight aboard with my own hands before I'll be robbed by a labor union at the bidding of Willis Marsh." "Say, will you let me load this ship my way?" George asked. "Can you do it?" Bait's thick lips drew back from hi yellc-w teeth in that smile which Emer son had come to recognize as a har binger of the violent acts that rejoiced his lawless soul. "Listen." said he. with a chuckle. "Down the street yonder I've got a hundred fishermen. Half of them are drunk at this minute and the rest are half drunk." "Then they are of no use to us." "I don't reckon j-ou ever seen a herd of Kalvik fishermen out of a job, did you? Well, there's just two things they know, fishing and fighting, and this ain't the fishing season. When they hit Seattle the police force goes up into the residence section and stuffs cotton in its ears, because the only thing that is strong enough to stand between a uniform and a fisherman is a hill." "Can you induce them to work?" "I can. All I'm afraid of is that I can't induce them to quit. They're liable to put his freight aboard the Bedford Castle and then pull down the dock in a spirit of playfulness and pile it in Captain Peasley's cabin. There ain't no convulsion of nature that's equal to a gang of idle fisher men." "When can they bpgin?" "Well, it will take me all night to round them up, and I'll have to lick four or five, but there ought to be a dozen or two on hand in the morn ing." George cast a roving eye over the warehouse from the heavy plank j fTflHE little girl broke her little doll p, yesterday. She dropped It on the pave ment, and when she could bear to look she found that the poor little thing's head was cracked clear across the top. . and that there was something queer the ! matter with her eyes. The little girl smiled just as hard as she could It's a way she has when she wants to keep from crying and walked quietly along without a word. She carried the broken doll tenderly in her arms, and when she got home she cried very hard. "I loved her so," she said. "She wasn't so awfully pretty, but oh, she was so sweet, and now tonight I'll have no one to hold in my arms." Some one told her about a doll's funeral, and for a little while the little girl fixed her mind on that, but when the broken doll was dressed in white and was laid in a pretty box and covered with a wreath of shining green leaves off of the little bush in the garden the little girl couldn't stand it, after all, and she burst into an agony of miserable tears. "I can't have her buried," she sobbed. "Poor litle, lonesome thing. I couldn't sleep a wink all night thinking of her out there in the ground, with me in my nice, comfortable bed." For awhile it looked as if the house was turned into a place of mourning, but all at once tne little girl's aunt had a bright Idea. ing underfoot to "tbe wide "spanning rafters above. "Yes," he concluded, "I don't see nothing breakable, so I guess it's safe." "Would you like me to go with you?" The giant considered him specula tively. "I don't think so. I ain't, nev er seen you In action. Xo, you better stay here and arrange to guard this stuff till morning. I'll do the rest." The following morning, true to his word, the big fellow walked into the warehouse followed by a score or more of burly fishermen. Bait bore signs of strife. The big man's lips were cut, while back of one ear a knot had sprung up overnight like a fungus. ' They fell to work quickly, stripping themselves to their undershirts; they manned the hoists, seized trucks and bale hooks and began their tasks with a thoroughly nonunion energy. Some of them were still so drunk that they staggered, their awkwardness afford ing huge sport to their companions, yet even in their intoxication they were surprisingly capable. George sought out Boyd and proudly in quired: "What do you think of them, eh?" "They are splendid. But where are the others?" "Well, there are two or three that won't be able to get around 'at all." He meditatively stroked the knuckles of his right hand, which were badly bruised. "But the balance will be here tomorrow. These are just the mildest mannered ones the family men, you might say. The others will show up gradual." The work had not continued many hours before a stranger made his way in upon the dock and began to argue with the first fisherman he met. Boyd, approaching him, demanded: "What do you want?' "Nothing," said the newcomer. "Then get out" "What for? I'm just talking to this man." "Will you go?" "Say, you can't load that cargo this way," the man began threaten ingly. "And you can't make me go" At which Emerson seized him by the collar and quickly disproved the asser tion, to the great delight of the fish ermen. He thrust him ut into the street. "I'm a union man. and you can't load that ship with 'scabs.' " The stranger swore, as he slunk off. (To Be Continued.) HARAHAN BRINGS GRAFTERS TO JUSTICE President J. T.

(By Horace IT. Shelton.) Austin, Texas, Sept. 7. There is now on foot in Texas a move having for its evident uprpose the confusion of the voters of Texas in case the next legis lature submits a constitutional prohi bition amendment. Such a trick was successful two years ago when the Democrats first voted on the submis sion question. The men circulating the petition probably -hope to raise in the minds of the citizens the fear that the defeat of the prohibition amend fent means the wiping out of local op tion laws and the making of dry terri tory, wet. Such an issue could only confuse the most ignorant. The Petition. The petition being circulated, it is rumored by money advanced by the liquor interests of Texas, is as follows: "To the honorable governor O. B. Col quitt and Thirty-second legislature: Your subscribers are voters of the state of Texas and have an interest in the policies of government and the wellbe ing of society. . "Pursuant to the Instructions given in the primaries of July 23, 1910, and the further instructions by the late Democratic platform, you will submit to the voters of Texas a constitutional amendment prohibiting the liquor traf fic. "Provided you submit the aforesaid amendment, it is prayed that along with and at the same time said pro posed amendment is submitted, you also submit to the people for their choice as between prohibition and lo cal option, the ensuing local option amendment, viz: section zu. xne legislature shall at its first session enact a law whereby any county, justice precinct, city, town or subdivision of a county, by a major ity vote, from time to time, may de termine whether Importation, manu facture, gift, exchange, sale and all oth er dispositions of intoxicating liquors shall be prohibited within the pre scribed limits except for purposes be yond the evils under regulations of law." Absurdity of measure. The meat in the cocoanut is in the words "to the people for their choice as between prohibition and local op tion." This would indicate a man who voted for prohibition voted against local op tion, which of course is absurd. The defeat of the proposed constitutional amendment providing for statewide prohibition cannot -in any waj- affect present conditions so far as local op tion is concerned. If the amendment is defeated the districts now local op tion will remain local option. If it is adopted local option will simply be ex tended from districts to cover the state. The proposed amendment is absurd on its face. The present constitution, which will remain unchanged if the prohibition amendment is defeated, cer tainly makes ample provision for local option laws. The laws now in efrect, admitted to be wise ones and suscepti ble of being made as stringent as a leg islature cares to write them, are made under the existing constitution and will remain just as they are after tho election. 3Iany Prohibitionists Sljyn. Under the guise of plausible argu ments the men circulating the petition are getting many signatures from pro hibitionists, but to the crpdit of the judgment of the prohibitionists be It said, the majority of the signers are pronounced antis. The wise prohibitionist will not let himself be drawn into any trap which will confuse the issue or possibly divide the forces. The fight should be made along the one line, prohibition or anti prohibition. Every well informed man knows what t-hat means. When the is sue is submitted, every voter will be in a position to cast his ballot as his conscience and judgment dictate. V.

I Have- NOW More than ever "There is no place like Holmes" HASKQT ON WORK OF VETERINARIANS (Continued from Page Six.) dustry has been one of the leading forces of the world In the investigation of animal diseases, and has perfected vaccines for the majority of the conta gious and infectious diseases to which animal lifeis subject. Human Medicines for Animals. It is interesting to note that the packing house business recognizes mora than thirty animal products which are used for medicine for human beings. If there were no other reason for the careful veterinary inspection required under the meat inspection law to in sure healthy meat products, the guar anteeing that these thirty remedies are pure -would be sufficient reason for the maintenance of this inspection. How much we are exposed to danger of the communication of animal diseases to human beings, through these remedies, is shown by the case of suprarenalin. It requires the suprarenal glands of 100. 000 sheep to make a single pound of suprarenalin. If any one of these sheep was suffering from a contagious dis ease it might be spread to thousands of patients upon which that pound of suparenalln is used. This preparation is used in connection with delicate sur gical operations for stopping the flow of blood, and costs more than $5000 a pound. t Want Vivisection. The veterinarians have no patience with the well-meaning people who would put a stop to vivisection and other forms of animal experimentation. They, along with all other medical men, agree that the greatest triumphs of medical science have come about through animal experimentation. They tell us that all our knowledge about the regenerative growth of tissues, the union of fractured bones, the activities and functions of the various orerans of the body a thousand things essential to medical progress have come about through experiments performed on an imals. Above this it has served more than anything else to lift the dark cloud that formerly obscured all mat ters of infectious disease, and has burst the bonds df thralldom in which the human race has been held by such dis eases. The agricultural collegesof the coun try nearly all have provided courses In the care of live stock, in which are taught the fundamental principles of veterinary medicine. The students who take these courses are, of course, not well enough equipped in veterinary sci ence to become registered-practitioners, but are taught enough to enable them to take all the precautions of preven tive medicine, and at the same time to treat the thousand and one small ail ments to which animal life is heir. Old Time Superstition. There was much superstition connect ed with live stock diseases in years gone by. Some thought that the poor, run-down condition of certain cattle in the farmyard was due to hollow horn, and a system of treatment iva T-cm-' to. In many cases tuberculosis was the reai anment. Hollow tail was another disease which the provincial attributed to certain of his cattle. The majority of thin, raw-boned animals are in that condition either from the ravages of tu berculosis, or else from the lack of at tention, and hollow horn and hollow tail are now believed to have been lit tle more than euphonious excuses for empty stomachs or decayed lungs Tomorrow International Swiniminc Contest.
