Simultaneously a man galloped up, flung himself from his horse and took the young woman from her lover. “My little girl!” he cried In a voice that rang with love. Luck had found his ewe Iamb that was lost. It was Curly who first saw the man approaching from the gulch. “Hello, Cass I Did you get him?*' Fendrlck nodded wearily. “Yep. He’s up there.” The sheepman’s hand swept toward the bluff. “You’re wounded?” “Got me In the shoulder. Nothing serious, I Judge.” Cullison swung around. “Sure about that, Cass?” It was tha first time for years that he had called the other by his first bum except ha Irony. "Sure." “Let's have a look at the shoulder.” After he had done what he could for It Lack spoke bluffly. “This dashed feud is off, Casa. You’ve wiped the slate clean. When you killed Black r X Ha Turned to Run as tha Other Fired. well you put me out of a hostile camp.” “I’m glad—so glad. Now we’ll all be friends, won’t we?” Kate cried. Cass looked at her add at Curly, both of them radiant with happiness, and his r.eart ached for wha» he had missed. Hut he smiles none the less. “Suits me If >t does yon.” He gave one hand to Luck and the ether to his daughter. Curly laughed gayly. “Everybody satisfied, I reckon.” » - CHAPTER XIII. Loom Threads. Those who knew about Sam's "share In the planning of the Tin Cup hold up kept their mouths close. All of the men implicated in the robbery were dead except Dutch. Cullison used his Influence to get the man a light sen tence, for he knew that he was not a criminal at heart. In return Dutch went down the line without so much as breathing Sam’s name. Luck saw to it that Curly got all the credit of frustrating the outlaws in their attempt on the Flyer and of cap Wiring them afterward. In the story of the rescue of Kate he played up Flandrau’s part In the pursuit at the expense of the other riders. For Sep tember was at hand and the young man needed all the prestige he could get. The district attorney hnd no choice but to go on with the case of the State versus Flandrnu on a charge of rustling horses from the Bar Double 11. But public sentiment was almost a unit In favor of the defendant. The evidence of the prosecution was not so strong as It had been. All of his accomplices were dead and one of the men Implicated had given it out In hie Mat momenta that the yonng man ■raj not a party to the crime. The aura who had owned the feed corral ha* aold out and gone to Colorado. Tho hotel clerk would not ewear posi tively that the prisoner was the man he had eeen with the other rustlers. Choir had one important asset no Jury could forget. It counted for a good deal that Alec Flaadraa. Billy Mackenzie, and Luck Cullison were knowa to bo backing him. but it was worth much mors that his wife of a weak sat beslda him In the courtroom. Bvory look and motion of the glrl-wlfe radiated love for the young scamp who had woe her. And since they were tender-hearted old frontiersmen they did not Intend to spoil her Joy. Moreover, society could afford to take chances with this young fellow Flan Uau. Long before they left the box >ach member of the Jury knew that he was going to vote for acquittal. It took the jury only one ballot to* Ind a verdict of not guilty. The judge did not attempt to stop the up oar of glad cheers that shook the building when the decision was read, ile knew it was not the prisoner so uuch they were cheering as the brave girl who had sat so pluckily for three days beside the husband she had made a man. From the courtroom Curly walked out under the blue sky of Arizona a free man. Rut he knew that the best i»f his good fortune was that he did not go alone. For all the rest of their lives her firm little steps would move beside trim to keep him true and steady. He could net go wrong now, for he was anchored to a responsibility that was a continual joy and wonder fenhms. (THE END.) -o ARKANSAS SAVED $17,500 ON CO OPERATIVE HOG SHIPMENTS. A saving of $17,500 to th farmers of Arkansas was effected on the 68 cars of hogs shipped cooperatively from 22 counties during the first 100 days of this year, according to T. Roy Reid, agent in livestock marketing, There were 6480 hogs in these cars, that were owned by more than 700 farmers indicating that there was an average of 10 farmers who participat ed in each shipment. The total re turns on the 68 cars amounted to $127,590.52 and the average cost of shipping for all the hogs sold was 94.3 cents per hundredweight. The ncreased returns received by the farmers on these shipments above the local market price offered to them, whore there was a local market, has amounted to $260 per car or a total saving of more than $17,500 on all the shipments. Furthermore the low mar ket prices for hogs and the recent dis turbed condition of the labor troubles have prevented many shipments from being sent to market. The season for shipping cattle has not started, but movements of cattle will start as soon as they have had) time to put on flesh from the spring growth of grass. Cooperative cattle shipments in 1919 exceeded in num ber the cooperative shipments of hogs and the indications are that the great er part of Arkansas cattle will be ship ped to market cooperatively this year, —The- Progressive Parmer. -0 Notice.

(by R, L. Foster, University of Ark.1 A few complaints of the Fall Army Worm are now being received by W. J Bacrg entomologist of tne Agricultural Experiment Station of Arkansas Uni versity. This is almost a month an - lier than,the worm has made its ap pearance last year and year bvi’ore, recording to Mr. Baerg. This inject dl l considerable damage to corn and cotton fields in 1918 and in 1919 the damage was even heavier and more lo calities were attacked. The Army Worm is also known as the grass worm. It is a greenish caterpillar which when full grown is about one and1 r. half inches long, A characteristic by which it is recog nized is a yellow inverted Y on the front side of the head. Oteher impor tant markings are two yellow lines on each side along the back and often a third pale line along the middle of the back. A number of generations of these worms follows each other through the summer. The first complaint came from near Little Rock where they are reported as doing serious damage to young corn. The outbreak of last year and the one before have shown that the army worm may cause very severe injury to both cotton and corn, They have also shown that if the pro per precautions are taken this injury mr.y be almost entirely pevented. All meadows nea cotton and corn flels ,and the grassy borders along the fields should be examined at this time. If the worms are present in consld eratble numbers the gra^s should be dusted with calcium arsenate, or sprayed with a mixture of one pound of dry lead araenate to 5b gallons of water. If this is done, however, all live stock must be kept out of the field as his application is poisonous and will injure or kill livestock. This method should be used only when live stock can be kept off. These measures may also be applied to the "worm when already in cotton or corn. If the worms are observed to be ipoving towards cotton or corn, they can be kept out of these crops by plowing a deep furrow with the steep side towards/ the field to be protected. A posoned bait made of 20 pounds of bran and one pound of Paris Green or white arsenic with enough water added to make it wet is very effective when scattered in and near such for rows, When a generation of worms become full grown they go into the ground to enter the pupal or resting stage; from these the millers emerge about a week Inter. If the groi’.nd can be stirred up by frequent cultivation when the worms are in the ground many cf them will be destroyed TO BOUND UP SLACKERS Federal Officers Hare. 7,572 m List In New York District. New York, July 17.—A total of 7, 572 alleged slackers m tbU district ar^ to be rounded up by officers of the De partment of Justice.
