STORY LANGFORD of the THREE BARS By KATE AND VIRGIL D. BOYLES (Copyright by A. C. Miflurg A Co., 11W7. ) W. P SYNOPSIS. George Williston, n poor ranchmnn, high minded and cultured, searches for cattle missing from his ranch-the “Lazy 6." On a wooded spot In the river’s bed that would have been an island had the Missouri been at high water, he discovers u band of horse thieves engaged in work ing over brands on cattle. He creeps near enough to note the changing of the “Three Bars” brand on one steer to the ”J. R.” brand. Paul Langford, the rich owner of the “Three Bars” ranch, is sent for by Willlston and is informed of the operations of the gang of cattle thieves.— a band of outluws headed by Jesse Black, who long have defied the law and author ities of Keinah county. South Dakota, with impunity, but who. heretofore, had not dared to molest any of the property of the great "Three Bars" ranch. Willis ton shows ids reluctanc.v in opposing a band so powerful in politics and so dread ed by all the community. Langford pledges Willlston his friendship if he will assist in bringing “.lesse Black” and hi* gang to Justice. Langford is struck with the beauty of Mary, commonly known as "Wllllston’s little girl." Louise Dale, an expert court stenographer, who had followed her uncle. Judge Hammond Dale, from the east to the "Dakotahs. and who is living with him at Wind Pity. Is requested by the county attorney. Richard Gordon, to come to Kemah ami take testimony in the preliminary hear ing of Jesse Black. She accepts the Invi tation and makes her first trip into the wild Indian country. Arriving at \ elpen across the river from Kemah. she is met by Jim Munson, a hot heuded cowboy or the "Throe Bars" ranch. In waiting for the train Munson looks at some cattle in the stock pen. in the herd being shipped to Sioux City by Bill Brown he detects old "Mag" a well known "onery” steer belonging to his employer of the “Three Bars" runch. CHAPTER V.—Continued. • What’ll you have?” he asked, hos pitably, the familiar air of the Hon Ami bringing him back to his accus tomed self-confident sv/agger. "Might I have some tea and toast, please?” said Louise, sinking into a chair at the nearest table, with «two ‘jWtling yet amusing thoughts ram- Twnt in her brain. One was, that she wished Aunt Helen could have seen her swinging along in the wake of this typical "bold and licentious” man, and calmly and comfortably sitting down to a cozy little supper for two at a public eating house; the other startling thought was to the effect that the Invitation was redolent with suggestiveness, and she wondered if she was not expected to say, "A whis key for me. please.” "Guess you kin,” answered Jim, wonder In his voice at the exceeding barrenness of the order. “Mrs. Hig gins, hello there, Mrs. Higgins! I say, there, bring on some tea and toast for the lady!” "Where Is the Three Bars?” asked Louise, her thoughts straying to the terrors of a 15-mile drive through a strange and uncanny country with a stranger and yet more uncanny man. She had accepted him without ques tion. He was part and parcel with the strangeness of her new position. But the suddenness of the transition from Idle conjecture to startling reality had raised her proud head and she looked this new development squarely in the face without outward hint of Inward pertubation. “Say. where was you raised?" asked Jim, with tolerant scorn, between ..huge mouthfuls of boiled pork and cabbage, interspersed with baked po- hot rolls and soggy dumplings, in with knife, fork or spoon. anticipated dessert by making a sudden sortie into the quarter of an immense custard pie, hastening the end by means of noisy draughts of steaming coffee. Truly, the Three Bars connection had the fat of the land at the Bon Ami. "Why, it’s the Three Bars that’s bringin’ you here. Didn’t you know that? There’s nary a man in the hull country with backbone enough to keep off all-fours ’ceptin’ Paul Lang ford. Um. You just try once to walk over the boss, will you? Lord! What a grease spot you’d make!” “Mr. Gordon Isn’t being walked over, is he?” asked Louise, finished with her tea and toast and impatient to be off. “Oh, Gordon? Pretty decent sort o’ chap. Right idees. Don’t know much about handlin’ hoss thieves and s ich. Ain’t smooth enough. Acted kind o’ like a chicken with its head lit off till the boss got into the round up.” "Oh!” said Louise, whose concep 'ion of the young counsel for the state did not tally with this delineation. op, Miss, this here’s the boss's doin’s. Yep. Lord! What'll that an S look like when we aro through with ’em. Spendin’ the rest o’ their days down there in Soux Falls, medi 'atin’ on the advisability o’ walkin’ clear o’ the toes o’ the Three Bars in ’he future and cussin’ their Btupendi ded stupidity in foolin’ even once with 'e Three Bars. Yep, sir—yep, ma’am, * me^—Jesse Black and his gang , 0 acle <* Just like pesky, little plum °°l \noskeeters, and we're goin’ to * ll ® m ’ Tlle cheek of ’em, lightin' on tb* Three Bars! Lord!” "Mr. Willlston Informed, did he not?” “Willlston? Oh, yes, he informed, but he’d never ’a’ done It if it hadn’t ’a’ been for the boss. The ol’ jellyfish wouldn’t ’a' had the nerve to inform without backin’, as sure as a stone wall. The boss is a doin’ this, 1 tell you, Miss. But Willlston ’s a goln’ on the stand to-morrer all right, and so am I.” The two cowboys at the corner table had long since finished their supper. They now lighted bad-smelling cigars and left the room. To Louise's great relief Munson rose, too. He was back very soon with a neat little runabout and a high-spirited team of bays. “Boss’s private,” explained Jim with pride. “Nothin’ too good for a lady, so the boss sent this and me to take keer o’ it. And o’ you, too, Miss,” he added, as an afterthought. He held the lines in his brown, mus cular hands, lovingly, while he stowed away Louise’s belongings and himself snugly in the seat, and then the blood burned hot. and stinging through his bronzed, tough skin, for suddenly in his big, honest, untrained sensibilities was born the consciousness that the boss would have stowed away the lady first. It was an embarrassing mo ment. Louise saved the day by climb ing In unconcernedly after him and tucking the linen robe over her skirt. “It will be a dusty drive, won’t it?” she asked, simply. "Miss, you’re a —dandy,” said Jim as simply. As they dove upon the pontoon, bridge, Louise looked back at the little town on the bluffs and felt a momen tary choking in her throat. It was a strange place, yet it had tendrils reaching homeward. The trail be yond was abscurely marked und not easy to discern. She turned to her companiion and asked quickly: “Why didn’t Mary come?" “Great guns! Did I forgit to tell you? Williston’s got the stomach ache to beat the band and Mary’s got to physic him up 'gin to-morrer. We’ve got to git him on that stand if it takes the hull Three Bars to hoi’ him up and the gal a pourin’ physic down him be tween times. Yep, Ma'am. Ho was “Where Is the Three Bar 3?” i pizened. You see. everybody that ate any meat last night was took sick with gripin’ cramps, yep; but Willls ton he was worse’n all, he bein’ a hearty eater. He was a stayin' in town over night on this preliminary business, and Dick Gordon he was I took, too, but not so bad, bein’ what I you might call a light eater. The boss j and me we drove home after all, ! though we'd expected to stay for sup- I per. The pesky coyotes got fooled that time. Yep. ma’am, no doubt about It In the world. Friends o’ Jesse's that we ain't able to lay hands on yit pizened that there meat. Yep, no doubt about it. Dick was in an awful sweat about you. Was bound he was a coinin’ after you liisself, sick as he was, when we found Mary was off the I count. So then the boss was a coiniu' i and they fit and squabbled for an hour who could be best spared, when I, coinin’ in, settled it in a jiffy by offerin' my services, which was gladly accepted. When there’s pizeniu’ goln’ on, why, the boss’s place is hum. And nothin’ would do but the boss’s own particular outfit. He never does things by halves, the boss don't. So I hikes home after it and then hikes here.” "1 am very grateful to him. I am sure,” murmured Louise, smiling. And Jim. daring to look upon her | smiling face, clear eyes und soft hair under the jaunty French sailor hat, found himself wondering why there was no woman at the Three Bars. With the swift, half-intuitive thought, the serpent entered Eden. CHAPTER VI. “Nothing but a Hoss Thief, Anyway.” The island teemed with early sun flowers and hints of goldenrod yet to come. The fine, white, sandy soil deadened the sound of the horses’ hoofs. They seemed to be spinning through, space. Under the cotton woods it grew dusky and still. At the toll house a dingy buckboard in a state of weird dilapidation with a team of shaggy buckskin ponies, stood waiting. Jim drew up. Two men were lounging in front of the shanty, chatting to the toll man. "Hello. Jim!” called one of them, a tall, slouching fellow with sandy col oring. “Now, how the devil did you git so familiar with my name?" growled Jim. “The Three Bars is gettin’ busy these days," spoke up the second man, with an insolent grin. “You bet it is," bragged J'm. “When the off’cers o’ the law git to sleepln’ with hoss thieves and rustlers, and .ak« two weeks to arrest a bunch of ’em, when they know prezaotly whore they keep thlrselves, and have to have special deputies app’inted orer ’em five or six times and then let most o’ the bunch slip through their j fingers, it’s time for some one to git | busy. And when Jesse Black and his gang are so desp’rit they plzen the chief witnesses ” A gentle pressure on his arm stopped him. He turned Inquiringly. "I wouldn’t say any more,” whisper- | ed Louise. “Let’s get on.” The hint was sufficient, and with the words, “Right you are, Miss Reporter, we’ll be glttin’ on,’’ Jim paid his toll and spoke to his team. "Just wait a bit, will you?” spoke up the sandy man. “What for?" "We’re not just ready.” “Well, we are,” shortly. “We arn’t, and we don’t care to be passed, you know.” He spoke indifferently. In defer ence to Louise, Jim waited. The men smoked on carelessly. The toll man fidgeted. “You go to hell! The Throe Bars ain’t waitin’ on no damned hoss thieves,” said Jim. suddenly. With a burning oath Jim. keeping to the side of the steep incline till the river mire cut him off, deliberately turned his stanch little team squarely and crowded them forward against the shaggy buckskins. It was team against team. Louise, clinging tightly to the seat, lips pressed together to keep back any sound, felt a wild. In explicable thrill of confidence in the strength of the man beside her. The bays were pitifully, cruelly lashed by the enraged owner of the buckskins, but true as steel to the fa miliar voice that had guided them so often and so kindly, they gave not nor faltered. There was a snapping of broken wood, a wrench, a giving way, and the runabout sprang over debris of broken wheel and wagon-box to the narrow confines of the pontoon bridge. “The Three Bars is gettin’ busy!" gibed Jim over his shoulder. "It’s a sorry day for you and yours,” cried the other, lti black and ugly wrath. "We ain’t afraid. You’re nothin’ but a hoss thief, anyway!” responded Jim, gleefully, as a parting shot. "Now wlmt do you suppose was their game?" he asked of the girl at his side. "I don’t know." answered Louise, thoughtfully. “But 1 thought it not wise to say too much to them. You are a witness, I believe you said." “Then you think they are part o’ the gang?" "I consider them at least sympa thizers, don’t you? They seemed down on the Three Bars.” In the Indian country at last. Mile after mile ol’ level, barren stretches after the hill region had been left lie hind. Was there no end to the thirst inspiring. monotonous, lonely reach of cacti? Prairie dogs, perched in front of tlieir holes, chattered and scolded at them. The sun went down and a refreshing coolness crept over the hard, baked earth. Still, there was nothing but distance anywhere in at. the land, and a feeling of desolation swept over the girl. The moon came up. Then there were miles of white moonlight and lonely plain. But for some time now there has been a light in front of them. It is as if it must be a wlll-o’-the-wisp. They never seem to get to it. But at last they are there. The door is wide open. A pleasant odor of bacon and coffee is wafted out to the tired trav elers. "Cotne right in." says the cheery voice of Mary. "How tired you must be, Miss Dale. Tie up, Jim, and come in and eat something before you go. Well, you can eat again—two suppers won’t hurt you. I have kept things warm for you. Your train must have been late. Yes. dad is better, thank you. He’ll be all right in the morn ing" (TO BE CONTINUED.) Man’s Prejudice for Black Clothes. In opening an artistic dress exhibi tion Mr. Louis N. Parker, master of the recent Warwick pageant, said there could be no doubt that the clothes men wore were foolish, says the Pall Mall Gazette. He claimed that us woman could array herself in sympathetic colors and flowing folds, the time had arrived when man should be placed on equality with her, instead of the having to array himself in black for dinner, the theater, funerals and weddings. He believed and hoped that his pageants would -do something to sweep away the prejudice for black, for it was a horrid custom on the part of civilization. Correct Interpretation Essential. Many « f the most beautiful pieces ol poetry in literature would seem unin terest in si and fiat if read by a bad reciter, .in the same way, a good re- j citer will make attractive a poem • whose beauties aro not so apparent. A fine painter will light up each little beauty in his pictures until the small est detail Is attractive and strikes the eye. It is only the mediocrity whose work Is characterized by sameness and lack of interest. Hypnotic Sunstroke. A German physician who had a pa tient who could not afford to go to a warm climate, thought he would ac complish the same result by means of hypnotism. The doctor chalked a pic ture of the sun on the ceiling, and by suggestion induced the patient to be lieve it really was the sun and that it would cure him. But the patient soon died. When the doctor’s friends guyed him about the novel treatment he indignantly explained that the pa tient was gettivg along nicely and would have got well had he not unex pectedly died of sunstroke. PRESIDENT ON RAILROAD PAY LETTER TO INTERSTATE COM MERCE COMMISSION ON CUTTING OF WAGES. WANTS INVESTIGATION PUBLIC ENTITLED TO KNOW IP REDUCTION IN WAGES IS WARRANTED. Washington.—Serious industrial dls- i pules in prospect were in the mind of President Roosevelt when he wrote a letter to the interstate commerce com mission Tuesday, which was made pub ; lie Wednesday. ■ He says that Information has ! reached him that on account of the en i actment of drastic laws by the Con- I gross and by the various State Legls ! latinos, it is regarded as necessary by ( ! railroad companies to reduce the pay J of employes. He points out that under the law : either party may demand the services of the chairman or the interstate com merce commission and of the commis sioner of labor as a board of coucilla ! tion. He suggests, therefore, that the in ! terstate commerce commission make | such an investigation as will enable it to furnish data concerning wage conditions on various railroads that may relate directly or Indirectly to the possibly impending controversy. The text of the President’s letter fol lows: “To tlie Interstate Commerce Com mission: "I am informed that a number of railroad companies have served no tice of a proposed reduction of wages on their employes. One of them, the Louisville & Nashville, In announcing the reduction, states that ’the drastic laws inimical to the interests of the railroads that have in the past year or two been enacted by Congress and the State Legislatures’ aro largely or chiefly responsible for the conditions i requiring the reduction.’ "Under such circumstances it is possible that the public may soon be confronted by serious industrial dis putes. and the law provides that in such case either party may demand the services of your chairman and of the commissioner of labor as a board of mediation and conciliation. “These reductions in wages may be warranted or they may not. As to this, tho public, which is a vitally In terested party, can form no judgment without a more complete knowledge j of the essential facts and real merits of the case than it now has or than it can possibly obtain from the special pleadings certain to be put forth by each side In case the dispute should bring about serious interruption to traffic. “If the reduction in wages is due to natural causes, the loss of business be ing such that the burden should be, , and is. equitably distributed between capitalist and wage worker, the public and Congress should know It, and if it is caused by misconduct in the past financial or other operations of any railroad, then everybody should know it. especially if the excuse of un friendly legislation is advanced by the railroad managers, or as a justification for failure to treat fairly the wage earning employes of the company. an industrial conflict be tween a railroad corporation and its employes offers peculiar opportunities I to any small number of evil disposed persons to destroy life and property and foment public disorder. “Of course, if life, property and pub lic order are endangered, prompt nnd drastic measures for their protection becomes (he first plain duty. All other duties then become subordinate to tho preservation of the public peace and the real merits of the original con troversy are necessarily lost from view. This vital consideration should he ever kept In mind by a’l law abiding and far-sighted members of labor or ganizations. “It is sincerely to be hoped, there fore. that any wage controversy that 1 may rise between the railroads and their employes may find a peaceful so lution through the methods of con ciliation and arbitration already pro vided for by Congress, which have proven so effective during the past 1 year. “To this end the commission should he in a position to have available for any hoard of conciliation or arbitra tion relevant data pertaining to such carriers as may become involved In Industrial disputes. “Should conciliations fail to effect a , settlement and arbitration be rejected, . accurate Information should he avail able in order to develop a properly informed public opinion. “I therefore ask you to make such ! Investigations, both of your records and by nnv means at your command, !as will enable you to furnish data concerning such conditions obtaining on the Louisville & Nashville, and any other roads as may relate, directly or Indirectly, to the real merits of a possibly impending controversy. “THEODORE ROOSEVELT.” Bill Posters Not Coming. Denver. —Denver has lost the annual convent! m of the National Association of Bill Posters of the United States and Canada. Some months ago Denver was selected and the dates of July 14th, 15th and lfith were decided upon for holding iho convention. Arrangements had been made with several of the ho tels for accommodations for the dele gates. At the last meeting of the board of directors It was voted to change the convention from Denver to Detroit. The reason for this move Is stated to be that the hoard of directors feared too many people would be In Denver on the date set and they would rather meet in some quieter place.

Fearful and Wonderful Memorandum of Baltimore Cook. In tho family of a former Balti morean now residing in Providence, R. 1., there is a middle-aged German woman —a relative of the family—who, though having lived in this country over a quarter of a century, has not yet thoroughly mastered the English tongue. The expressions of this rela tive, who keeps house for the fam ily, sometimes afford much amusement to those unaccustomed to her peculiar ly characteristic “pigeon English.” Happening to visit the kitchen sev eral days ago the head of tho house discovered tacked up against the wall a crude memorandum pad.

The chief clerk of the pose office de partment at Washington recently sent to all the postmasters in the country a list of questions asking for certain information, says the New York Sun, to be used in the preparation of the government Blue Book. One of the questions in tha list was, “What are your marital relations?” The object of this particular ques tion was to find out whether the post masters are married, single, widowed or divorced. But some of the rural postmasters did not understand, and many answers were received in which the persons addressed endeavored to give a clear and lucid explanation of the status of their married life. One postmaster briefly stated that his do mestic affairs were “Fine and dandy.” Another, not so fortunate, replied: “Fairly middling,” while a third filled in the blank B»ace with two words: “The worst.” OF COURSE NOT. Clerk —A blind man to see you, sir. Master —Can’t see me! Derivation of a Term.

COFFEE DRINKING A Doctor Says it Weakens the Heart “In my opinion,” says a well known German physician, “no one can truth fully say that coffee agrees with him, as it has long since been proven that caffeine, contained in cofTee, is an in jurious, poisonous substance which weakens and degenerates the heart muscles. “For this reason the regular use of coffee, soon or late, causes a condition of undernourishment, which leads to various kinds of organic disease. "Convinced of this fact, I have often sought for some healthful beverage to use instead of coffee. At last I found the thing desired in Postum. Having had occasion to forbid people using cofTee, whose hearts were affected, I have recommended Postum as a bev erage, since it is free from all injuri ous or exciting substances. I know this from results in my own family, and among patients. “Hundreds of persons who now use Postum in place of coffee, are greatly benefited thereby.” “There’s a Reason.” Name given by Postum Co..
