TIMBER PRODUCTION ROCKY
MOUNTAIN DISTRICT ACCORD
ING TO 1922 CENSUS FIGURES
Denver.—The 1922 census of luinlier
production for the states of Colorado,
Wyoming and South Dakota shows an
Increase of approximately 20 per cent
in the manufacture of lumber over the
1921 production when 71,000,000 board
feet were reported as manufactured in
the Rocky Mountain district. The 1921
figures reflected the general depres
sion in the lumber industry and the In
creases shown by the 1922 flgureh indi
cates a gradual return 10 normal con
ditions. The increased production is
quite general, being reported by large
arid small mills alike.
The total production of lumber dur
ing 1022 for these three states was 85,-
148,000 board feet, according to pre
liminary figures just compiled by the
forest service In co-operation with the
census bureau of the Department of
Commerce. The produdHon of lath and
shingles in this region Is limited to
twenty mills which reported u total of
8,150,000 pieces of lath and 892,000
shingles manufactured In 1922.
Two-thirds of this lumber production
is made up of western yellow pine, 13
percent of lodge pole and an additional
13 per cent of spruce, while the re
maining 7 per cent consisted of Doug
las fir, white fir und u small quantity
of aspen and cottonwood.
While the above cut represents the
combined production of 305 saw’niills,
40,000,000 feet, or almost one-half of
this production, was manufactured by
fourteen mills, each cutting In excess
of 1,000,000 feet yearly.
Plantings of Winter Wheat and Rye
Washington.—The area which will
he sown to winter wheat and rye tills
fall will be considerably less than last
year, according to the report of the
United States division of crop and live
stock estimates. It 1h estimated that
the area sown to winter wheat In the
entire United States will be 84.5 per
cent of that sown last year, and that
of winter rye 01 per cent of last year.
The probable area to be sown in the
most important wheat producing states
as compared with last year is as fol
lows: Pennsylvania, 08 per cent; Ohio,
*00; Michigan, 90; Indiana, 83; Illinois,
80; Missouri, 75; Nebraska, 75; Kan
sas, 80; Texas, 82; Oklahoma, 78;
Colorado, 90; Washington, 105, and all
others, 02 per cent. The revised esti
mate of the area sown to wheat last
fall is 4(J.379,000 acres compared with
47,011,000 in 1921 and 44.895.0(H) in

was right, you can’t miss with
a frying pan. Cleary went down be
fore It. Ratcllffe, using only his fists,
had floored the biggest of the dagoes,
and the rest were crowding back bel
ter skelter, when n shout from Sellers,
who had regained the deck, brought
the battle to a pause.
"Stop fightln’, you d —n fools!” cried
Sellers.
"Lord ! Look 1” cried Jude.
The port side of the Sarah wap
turnfc- to the entrnnee of the lagoon,
and Into the lagoon was gl'dlng a long,
lean destroyer shearing the blue-green
water from her fore foot.
Being to starboard, the attackers
had not seen her, and the men on deck
had been too busy.
Carquinez alone had sighted her.
The effect was magical. Peace fell
like a sudden dropped dish cover, and
over the rail came Carquinez and half
a dozen more Spaniards from the
boats.
"Now we’re done!’’ said Sellers.
"She’s a Britisher, and this d—m sand
bank’s British and we'll be had to the
Bahamas Courts o’ Inquiry and Lord
knows what all. Referred to Havana
for Inquiries. They’ve seen us nt It,
no use denyln’ It. Look at them cusses'
bloody noses and Cleary flattened out.
Kick him alive, soma of you fools I
Here they cornel”
The destroyer had cast anchor and
dropped a boat. With the terrible pre
cision of a hawk of a warship closing
on its prey, she was on to the Sarah.
A blue and gold man held the yoke
lines, and the oars of the rowers rowed
like one.
"Look at that Image on the stem
sheets,” said Sellers.
"Leave him to me,” said Satan.
"What’s your game?”
"Shut your head! Here ne Is I”
The boat came alongside. The oars
rising like one, fell with a crash, the
bow oar ‘hooked on, and over the rail
came a sublieutenant of the British
navy, smooth of face and neat us
though Just taken from a bandbox.
"What the devil are you feliows up
10, fighting here?" asked the sublieu
tenant. •- ■*
Satun broke into a laugh.
“We’re movie men,” said Satan.
“You’re what?” »
"Movin’ pictures.”
"Oh —cinematograph T*
"That's it.’’
Ratcllffe, fired with admiration for
this Satanic move, Joined In laughing.
"Did you think we were fighting,
really? Well, that’s funny. What’s
the name of your ship?”
“The Albatross,” replied the sub
lieutenant, completely and roundly
taken In. "You’re English, aren’t you?”
"Yes, I’m English. Joined the show
some time ago.”
“What’a that hooker on the sand over
there?”
"Oh, that’s part of our show. Boat
supposed to have been wrecked —these
chaps are plrutes.”
"Jolly good make-up!” said the other,
surveying th# pirates and taking in
Cark, also Cleary, who, resuscitated
in time, was leaning over the rail chew
ing, and spitting Into the water.
The awful question, “Where’s your
camera?” never came. If It had, Satan
would no doubt have met It; but the

sublieutenant was new to this sort of
business and not on the hunt for -evi
dence. The thing was* palpable and
plain. No complaint came from the
attacked, and attacked and attackers
were all seemingly friends. The
words “cinematograph company" cov
ered the situation completely.
He gave a few words oi Information
aoput the Albatross. She had put In
for a small repair and would he off
again tomorrow morning. Then he
dropped into his boat and the incident
was closed.
“Now, you cusses," said Satan, “see
where you have landed yourselves!
IHiere’d you have been only for me?"
*WaU» I den t deny you slipped the
hood over that Britisher pretty smart,”
said Sellers.
Cleary turned his head and looked
at Sellers. “You don’t deny! Why,
you bloody barnacle scraper, I told you
to hold off from the business! Satan,
I forgive you that clap on the head.
Lord love me! I’ll never carry a der
ringer again. Give me a fryln’ pan,
that's the weppin; you can’t dodge It
no more than you can dodge a thun
derstorm.”
“Well,” said Satan, “fryln’ pan hack
the lot of you, and I’ll be on board the
Juan Inside half an hour and settle ray
business with you. If Cark had kept
his mouth shut Instead of glvln’ me
orders, we’d hnve finished It by now
and no heads broke,”
“We’ll waiting for you,” said
Sellers.
They tumbled into the boats and
rowed off.
“They never drew a knife,” said Rnt
cliffe.
“Oh, Cork took their knives from
them,” said Sntan. “He didn’t want
no blood splllin’ and trouble—too much
afraid of the law.”
Jude, who had collapsed sitting
wise on the deck, began to laugh
hysterically.
"What are you laughin’ at?” demand
ed Satan.
“I dunno,” said Jude.
Ten minutes later Satan and Rnt
cliffe boarded the Juan. Cleary was
already on board, down in the cabin
with the others; Cark and a bottle of
gin were presiding at one end of the
table. Satan, with a nod to the com
pany, came to the table and took his
seat, motioning Ilatcllffe to take the
seat opposite to him.
It was like a meeting of a board of
directors, and the tuble just held the
»li comfortably.
What followed struck the unaccus
tomed Ratcliffe with astonishment —
the amiability of It —it might have
been a card party, with Satan the
loser —momentarily.
“Well, gentlemen,” suid Satan,
“what’s to pay?”
There were extra glasses on the
table and a box of cigars. The cigars
were pushed along by Sellers as he
spoke.
“There’s Cark’s loss of time,” said
Sellers, “not to say mine and Cleary’s.
We tried for you round Rum cay when
you gave us the slip, and then there
wnB the run down here. A thousand
dollars to us that means, and five hun
dred to Cleary."
“Makln’ it two thousand five hun
dred and forty,” said Satan. * “I’m
ugreeable—and the derelic’ is mine.”
"Which derelic?” asked Sellers Inno
cently.
Satan, absolutely disdaining to reply,
lit a cigar.
“She’s worth all ten thousand dol
lars,” said he, “and what’s the salvage
on that?"
“Y’mean that old dismasted catboat
stuck on the sand there?" said Cleury.
“Not worth five —b’sldes, she’s our
meat.”
Satan dropped Sellers and turned to
Oarquinez. “You’ll maybe explain,”
said he. “You know the rights of the
law. If you try to collar that hooker.
I’ll come In with first claim, and here’s
a gentleman will back me In law ex
penses. You know him —Mr. Ratcliffe,
Holt & Ratcliffe.”
“I’ll back you,” said Ratcliffe.
“And It seems to TC& law Is not your
lay, Cark," went on Satan. “We came
In here yesterday and boarded and
claimed that hooker, and I was fixing
the tackle for towing when you blew
along. The thing's as clear as paint.
She’s ours for salvage, and you’re not
in It.”
“Look here!” began Sellers violently
—then he dosed up: Cark had given
him a kick under the table. 'Then
there was silence for a moment, during
which these two scoundrels seemed to
brood together teleputhically.
Then Cork spoke, addressing Satan.
“Will you tnke the air on deck for
one moment with your friend?” said
Cark.
“Sure,” said Satan.
A few minutes later they were called
down again.
“See here," said Sellers, acting as
spokesman for the others, “we don’t
want to bear hard on you, but we’ve
been at a big loss over this business."
“And who let you In for It?” asked
Satan. “Haven’t you been chusln* me
since last fall, over the Nombre? Was
It my fault she weren’t there?"
“Well, anyhow we’re losers. But I’m
coming to the derellc’. You’ll never be
able to do the tow with the Sarah—
why, the Sarah ain’t bigger than her,
and you’re underhnnded anyhow.”
“Thut’s so," suld Satan.
"Well, what I propose Is this,” said
Sellers. “We’ll drop claims for the
run down here and only usk a thou
sand of you, und you drop claims on
the derellc’.”
Satan laughed.
“Maybe you don’t know she’s got an
auxiliary in her worth four thousand
dollurs If It’s worth a cent. She’s
broke her propeller, but sho’s got a
spare one on board, end If I knew' any
thin’ of lnjlns I’d drive her buck on
her own power. No, I sticks to the
derellc’ if that’s the best you can offer
and here’s your dollars—though I’ll
have to give you my check for the
extra money.”
He produced a bundle; then, with his
hand on it: /
“If you choose to take the derellc’
for what she’s worth and call It quits,
I’ll trade, one or the other. I’m not

"I’ll tak!” suddenly broke la Car

CHAPTER XVI
The Vanished Light
A week later, toward sundown, the
Sarah cuine up the half-mile channel
and dropped her hook in Havana har
bor close to the old anchorage of the
Maine. A Royal maliboat passing out
gave her the kick of Its wash ns she
settled down to her moorings, a cus
toms boat dropped alongside, and the
customs men, hailing Satan as a friend
and brother, came aboard and trans
acted business with him in the cabin.
The wind blew warm, bringing scents
and sounds across the vast harbor,
fluttering the flngs of the shipping, and
Ratcliffe, standing at the rail, dazzled
by the brilliance of the scene before
him, knew that his cruise was over.
It was like coming to the end of a
book—a volume suddenly hunded to
him by Fate to read, and of which he
was condemned to write the sequel.
He remembered the morning at I’nlm
lslund when he bourdedthe Snruh first,
and the picture was still fresh In his
mind of the Ilaliotls m they had left

and Cleary and their men swarming
about her and tinkering her up. They

and bring her alonf under her own
motive power to theaearest port, Nas
sau In the Bahamas
They had been to busy with the
engines and the hull that they had
never noticed how completely she had
been stripped. They were unconscious
of the fact that she had been left with
her anchor down —unfortunates! He
could still see them like ants laboring
In the sun, at the task set to them by
the grimly humorous Satan.
Satan bad won the gnme they had
forced on him, holding, as he did, a
thousand dollars, the “tripes" of the
Haliotls, and the secret of the mug
trap, to be disposed of, perhaps, later
on for a consideration. Satan would,
no doubt, set other unfortunates dig
ging for the Nombre Just as he had set
Cleary and Sellers tinkering and tow
ing at the Haliotls, just as he had held
up freighters for a bunch of bananas,
just as he had made Thelusson and
his,crew careen and scrape the Sarah,
Just as he had made Ratcliffe an ac
complice In his plans and a handy man
to help him In his works; yet the funny
thing about the scamp was the fact
that he was absolutely dependable,
when not dealing with companies or
governments or derelicts. Ratcliffe
would have trusted him with his last
penny.
Dependable If you took hold of him
by his handle and not by his cutting
edge! Trustable if you trusted him !
Then Jude came up In. her harbor
rig; that Is to say, boots and a coat.
“Satan’s clacking away with the cus
toms an’ the port doctor man,” said
Jude. “You can’t see across the cabin
with the smoke, >ii(jl i had* to change
my rig in the galley”
“You going ashore?” asked Ratcliffe.
“No,” said Jude, “Satnn’s going. I’ve
got to keep ship. You going with him?"
"I suppose so.”
Appeared Sutan, followed by the
port men, who tumbled Into the boat
und off.
“Goin’ ashore?” asked Satan.
"Well, I’ll row you to the wharf after
I’ve hud a bite of supper. Jude’ll
bring the boat hack, and we can get a
shore bont off for half a dollar.”
Half an hour Inter, Just ns the elec
trics were springing alive and the
anchor lights of the shipping marking
the dusk blue sky, they started. They
stood on the wharf steps for a mo
ment watching Jude row off, then they
turned to the town.

COOL, REFRESHING VEGETABLES
When the mercury Is soaring up in
the nineties, cooling dishes are the
only ones that
appeal to the ap
petite.
We must have
vegetables to give
our food the
proper balance
and If not hot
and steaming,
then It behooves us to find some way
of making them appetizing without the
heat.
These vegetables may be prepared
In the early part of the day and when
dinner time comes a steak may be
broiled or a few chops and dinner
getting iy a simple process.
With the wealth of delicious vege
tables to be found at this season, one
may have a pair for each dinner and
never run low on Ideas.
Peas are such a delectable vegetable
that they may be served often In most
families. One day cook them, dress
them with cream, and serve in ripe to
mato baskets. This dish not only
gratifies the eye but will prove satis
fying to the palate.
Peas in Aspic Jelly. —A pint of
shelled pens will make six Individual
molds. Cook the peas in Just enough
water to cover them, adding a tea
spoonful of sugar and a slice of onion;

one and one-half cupfuls of nicely sea

well dissolved, then strain and chill
but do not let It come to the point of
congealing. Add the peas and a table
spoonful of chopped red pepper, stir
occasionally until the Jelly begins to

SUMMER SUGGESTIONS
In many places small boxes of tea
of various kinds may be purchased In
little bags, with
just enough In
them for a cup
of tea. When
traveling a cup of
tea Is quickly
made with boil
ing water, drop
In the bag and In
, a minute or two you will have a re-
I freshing drink. Carry a box In your
bug, for it will prove a comfort to
I some one, even If you don’t care for
tea.
The hot weather brings discomfort
! und loss of nppetite, it is almost too
hot to eat some days, but the body
: must be nourished. Let the meals he
as simple and as easy of digestion as it

. Gelatin Ice Cream. —Take two cup
fuls of thin cream, one cupful of
sugur. Dissolve two tnbiespoonfuls of
, gelatin in one-fourth cupful of hot
• water, add with one cupful of milk to
the cream and sugar and freeze.
Peach Cream Sherbet. —Measure two
cupfuls of ripe, iunshed, fresh peaches;
add one cupful of sugar and stand on
ice for three hours. Fold in one cup
ful of cream whipped until stiff and

the same of butter, and cool until
tepid. Soften one yeast cake in one
fourth of a cupful of lukewarm milk,
combine with the first mixture, udd a
teaspoonful of salt and three cupfuls
of flour. Let rise until the sponge Is
light, then add two-thirds of a cupful
of butter, one cupful of sugar, a tea
spoonful of nutmeg, and four eggs
beaten light; add to the sponge with
six more cupfuls of flour. Let rise,

the dishes were cleared away, they

And every day for ten years a young

Finally one day one of the old gen

and, after waiting a decent length of
