After frustrating her attempt at suicide, he learns she Is to become a mother. Turner introduces her to friends of his on board. Spot Rutherford, his icife and their four children. As they near the Red Bea the heat becomes intense. Joyce, one of the Rutherford children, becomes critically iU and Tig ale finds Viola nursing l\er. fNOW GO OV WITH THE STORY) CHAPTER 9 IT WAS AS though Joyce called to Tiggie for help out of the deep Valley of the Shadow, and though her eyes closed again Immediately and she became unconscious of him. Tiggle could stand inaction no longer. *Tm going to carry her up," ha •aid. '‘You bring blankets and things—and tell Spot?’' He stood as he spoke, and slipped his aims under the child. Her head fell back as he raised her. “Ah. look!” Viola said. He sot down sharply on the edge of the berth; they held the little hody between them. “She’s gone!" *ald Tiggie, staring downwards. "No —no. she Isn’t! Keep still!” II was a new voire that suddenly apoke to him. Viola was on her knees in front of him, cradling the fafr head on her arm. "Keep still!" she said again. "It’s only a faint. There’s brandy on the shelf behind me—a small flask! Can you reach ii? Don't move more than you need!” Tiggie obeyed, the quick, contained voir* pf authority influencing him in cpitf of his own conviction that the ?hllrt was dead. 9he took the flank from him and with deft movements opened it. Keep her just as she Is! T ran man age. There! Just one little drop— my darling! Can you swallow if? Try—oh. try!” Her words thrilled with a passion as entreaty, and to Tiggie. watching, it was as though the spirit paused on the very verge of departure and ’ooked hark in answer to the call. “Try!" Viola urged again very earnestly, “Do try—little sweet heart! If you ran only swallow just this, tiny drop for my sake! There! I knew yon could—l knew it!” It. seemed to Tiggie that the nrandy she had tried to administer was only trickling out again at the sorner of the half-open mouth, hut the deep triumph of tier words told him otherwise; and in a few mo ments he saw a faint quiver pass over the little pinched features, while a small, gasping sigh came to him. "She is—coming back." Viola said. He continued to sit motionless, spellbound, hardly believing, while she convert the child with tender words und managed to insert another drain of the brandy through the parted lips. Her own face as she did It was drawn In lines of almost fierce en durance. The whole force of her be ing was concentrated upon the dread emergency of the moment He could see that, while he sat passively sup porting the poor little inert hody on his knee.q, she was making a gigantic personal effort, the accomplishment of which Involved her utmost strength. It was as though, kneeling there, ahe poured out all her own vitality to renew that, which in Joyce had ebhed so low. And not only by physical means did she fight that tremendous battle to bring back the dying powers, but by the exercise of a supreme mental energy which to Tlggie’s simple mind was completely incomprehensible. Hooking back later It seemed to him that he had looked upon some thing that was very near to a mir acle though he could not have de scribed it even to himself, and what happened that night was to stand out in his memory for the rest of his life. ' How long the tremendous bat tle?.! asted he never knew, but when Viola lifted her head at last he saw thaf she had spent the last ounce of her strength. Her face was ghastly, and she sank back against the wall with a gesture of Impotence. But the child in his arms was breathing. The ebbing tide had turned. Spot, coming In softly a few min utes later, found him still sitting there on the edge of the berth as if dazed, while Viola crouched half fainting on the floor. "How like you!” he muttered into Tiggie'* ear as he bent over Joyce. “She'e better What have von done U> heft** As National Labor Board Signed ''Peace Pact” ' wmKmmß \ k imWHMI - MBm | H % s w*~ w v :w-,J— --■Mm - ..2P: : ; M;:; : --.''••:#:r ; >-| |»B ||g|gL tilßliii f&9HHI|flH p , <.:JIH HHk HHk. iJSi WkJFJm !!~^fe_.'.'

Spot lifted his burden from him. “I can look after her for a .pell now. She’ll probably sleep for a long time. You see after Mrs. Norman! Take her up on deck for a breath of air!" Tiggie turned to Viola. She had moved at Spot’s eht ranee and dragged herself on to a sent under the porthole. Her head tested against, the wall and her eyes were closed. She looked utteily ex hausted. “Give her some water! ’’ said Spot, still occupied with his child "it’s the heat.” Tiggie seized a glass, and. spying the brandy-flask, poured in some brandy as well as water. He bent over her with it. then as she made no movement held it himself to her lips. “Drink some of this! It’ll do von good.” he said. She drank submissively, and he watched her with relief. “Just—l he heat!” she murmured apologetically “I know. I’m going to take you up on deck,” said Tiggie. "Finish this first!” “Oh. I don't, think I can walk," she said weakly. "Yes, you can. I’ll help you.” It was, Tiggie’s turn to take command. “Drink the-rest, of that and you'll be all right!” She obeyed him with a slight shudder. “Get her out of it!" said Spot. "There are too many of us in here." “Gome along!” said Tiggie. He stooped and put his arm about the slender, drooping figure. She yielded to his insistence as though all power to do otherwise had forsaken her. And Tiggie, marveling at him self, half-led and half-carried her from the scene. As they ascended the companionway she stumbled and he promptly lifted her and bore her to the top, setting her on her feet as they reached the deck. A faint, faint breath of air crept through the darkness from the Arabian desert. The awful night was passing—a night that was for ever etched In hard black and white upon Tiggie’s brain. As yet he did not know what this new experience had done to him. lie only knew that it had somehow made an enormous difference in his life. Still supporting her, he went for ward till they stood at the rail gazing out into the blank around them. Two or three other passengers, driven up by the heat, were moving to and fro. But they might have been ghosts in the dimness. No one spoke. And there came again to Tiggie that curious sense of isola tion, as if they too had been cast up from the depths to find their course unaided upon an uncharted sea. He kept his arm about his com panion. conscious of Ivor need of sup port and vaguely wondering what his status would be when the need ex isted no longer. Ii seemed to him HENDERSON, (N. G.) DAILY DISPATCH, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1934 that they could neVer be .strangers again after this night of partnership. Some bond had come into being he • tween them which was unlike any thing he had ever known before—a connecting link which was nejiher of his forging nor hers, and whit h was yet possibly all the stronger for that very reason. The darkness was lessening Al ready the new day was upon them A lemon tinge that was swift I v deep ening to orange outlined the low hills behind them They began io ;ee the heave and fall of the waters around as they drew away from rhe shore. “Feeling better now?" said Tiggie, as he might have addressed a child. Her head lay against his shoulder. "I'm very, very fired.” she said "You want sleep." said Tiggie. "Yes." she agreed passively. ”1 want erp.” The light dpi pened. Behind the hills of Arabia a glory was growing, like a sword splitting a curtain. The dawn was close a; hand. Tiggie iqokert down at the pale face against his arm. and again its spirituality smote him with a sense of unreality lie felt as Though he looked upon a nictnie of a parity so exquisite that it appealed to the aesthetic senses alone. Iter loveli ness was tlie elusive loveliness of a dream. *- The light grew like a kindled fur nace behind them. In front, island after island sprang into being ns though a magic pencil hastily sketched them in. while the long shores receded into the background. Tiggie spoke again, his voice no more than a whisper. "Shall I carry you down again to rest?" She roused herself with an effort. "No- no, I'll go alone. I’d rather’’ She drew away from him as though realizing his proximity for ihe ‘first time. In the pure still light of the early morning lie saw a faint flush overspread her face. “Thank you— lor all you’ve done for me." she said, and he had a momentary glimpse of those mist-blue eyes of hers ere tire black lashes veiled them again. "1 couldn’t have gone on—alone.” “Are you going?" said Tiggie gently. “Shall I come with yon as far as the saloon?” “No. thank you.” she said. "No, thank you. I can manage all right now'.” She was gone. The place at his side was empty. Turning to watch her, the level, new-risen sun smote him between the eyes, and he drew back blinded. He groped his way forward along the deek. feeling as if the pitiless glare had pierced his soul. She had nestled against his breast, like a dove seeking sanctuary. And now she was gone. lie was alone with his thoughts. But they too were reeling, dazzled in the light of revelation. He could not face them or attempt to set them in order. All he knew was that she was gone, and lie wanted her—with ail his soul he wanted her —hack by his side ito hi: co\ti\urn> How Silk Affects Some Folk , Giving Them Hives , Asthma By LOGAN CLENDENING, M.

At first it was supposed tholvit was the dye which caused tlie trouble, hut on examination it was found that if she wore any silk ma terial the same symptoms would ap pear.

In the meantime, studies are being made at the college as to how the land relaesed from these various cash crops can be utilized to best advantage. Nothing can ibe grown on it that may be sold for cash or will compete in any way with the base cash crops which the AAA is seeking to reduce.

In order to be cured of his hives he had t« give up these luxurious habits »ndl go back to cotton. Altogether there are reports of ft cases of eczema, 4 cases of hives, and l case of asthma from silk. All of them appear to be definitely proved. What particular substance In the silk caurgß the trouble Is not alway* easy to determine. In the manufgc* ture of silk the glue which is used ’to hind the strands together Is some times removed, fn certain kinds of silk, called "souple" and "ecru”, however, the gum is left in the titter to the amount of something like 10 to 20 per rent in different grades. After this the silk is usually weighted with tin salts, or tannin, or iron, or logwood, and sometimes lead. Be sides this, silk usually is dyfd with coal-tar dyes. Which of all these substances causes the reaction is probably not the same in all cases. Most people who have studied the matter think that it in the silk glue which is’re» sponsible.

One of the main reasons for the r.\\ nation in Winston-Salem, where Lie doctors and the two hospitals have served notice that they will do J, more X-Ray work for the Industrial commission except at the fees they dictate, is believed to be because the only extensive X-ray equipment is lo cated in these two hospitals, thus giv ing them a virtual monopoly on X-ray work, it was learned here today. Tin two hospitals are the City Memorial Hospital and the North Carolina Ban List Hospital. The five doctors who sgined the letter as “We, the under signed X-ray specialists" are Doctors J. P.
