HERALD PUBLl!pHING C0- "Huh. shr Aint never seen me fight, 'specially when I'm mad. Gee, I could beat you any time." ."Thats alright, 1 beat you this morning." Lets go in swimming." suddenly piped Bill. "I know i i our mamas wouia nave regular duck fit, but they'Ml never know it. I'm as hard as nails and it wont hurt me. Its hotenuff to go in, but I'm got on my red flannels yet. Ma thinks I'm a baby." In a few minutes they were at decided. They were going in. 'hey were having a grand and o-lorious time when Jimmy hap- Dened to look at th3 bank. There stood two very ragged men. "Look Bill. They're tramps hou'll atPfil our clo's and how'l we git home?" - "Come out of that water you rascals" ordered one of the men. We don't want to come out, we just got in." "I dont care if you have. Come on out. If you don t i n tnrow a rock and bust your brains out" threatened the other one. Gee, Bill, they're fierce I'm scared. Come on and lets get out. Wonder if they'll hurt us?" The boys swam quickly to the shore. Bill saw they were rather desperate characters so he did'nt intend getting fresh. Come on Jimmie lets go home" he quietly said. "No you aint neither. You're troine with us. Hurry and come on, we aint gonna wait all day." As they wfte dressing the men asked several quesuona. Whats yer name? You with the red head and freckles?" "Bill Baxter" "What's yourn?" "Jimmy Jones. 'I know Baxter. He's the fellow that would'ntlend me any money this morning and he kept that other fellow from helping me too. swore I'd get even and I will. "Well I don't know nothin about Baxter but I shore aint in love with Jones. He sent me up for six months one time. I did'nt do nothine but steal a watch either. He jest had a grudge again' me, thats all." The boys were soon dressed and the men ordered them to walk fast. I intend to get even with yer dad fer sending me up. If can't get him I'll it take out on you. "I aint done nothing" "Well, thats all right but I'm gonna do somethin." Come on and hurry up. Time I get through with you you'll think the devil's had you sho nuf." Theys walked for about eight miles when they came to an old house far from the road. They went in and the men locked the doors. In a few minutes they got ready to leave so they told the boys there was no need to try to escape as the doors 'and windows were all barred and locked. "Now you better behave and if you go up stairs I'll kill you when I come back" threatened one of the men. "I just as soon kill you as not." Gee" moaned Jimmy when they were gone. "Looks like we were in here tor good, don't it. wish those or windows were'nt fastened and the doors wefe'nt locked, don't you Bill?" Doggone them ol' men. I wish they was dead." Wonder jvhat mama'll think? Gee but she'll be skeered to death. I won't have to go to bed nine o'clock. We've been gone about six hours. Its gitting dark now. I won't have to take ol' music lesson. Ain't I glad. Gee. ol' Miss Watkins is about there now. I know she'll be hopping mad 'cause it makes her mad to have to walk all the way to my house and then me not take a lesson" and Bill fairly When Honey It will Sting..

They heard the men coming so they got quiet and were just sitting still when they came in. "Where' ve yer been? any where but in here?" "Naw we aint moved." "Thata nice, if yer behave yer- self we won't treat yer so mean. We're jest gonna make yer Dads give a reward and then we're gonna git it. See?" "Come on Mike and lets eat. Do you kids want any thing to eat? If you do you better come along. I aint gonna wait all day." They were very hungry so they did'nt wait very long. The men went up stairs as soon as they finished eating. "Now you stay right here and don't you move if you do I'll kill you." In about an hour they came down and told the boys they were going to town. "We'll be back tomorrow night and don't you go up stairs" was their last warning. "I'm gonna go up stairs" firm ly announced Bill as soon as the men left. "Jts dark down here and I don't like it. They had a light up there 'cause I could see it under the door sill." "Well, I'll light the lamp in the kitchin then," volunteered Jimmy. Bill crept up the steps and nnened the door softly. On the table a lamp was burning. The shades were down at the windows so he was not afraid of being seen by the men. He looked around the room but did not see anything at first. But on lookine closer he saw a funny machine. He did not know what kind of machine it was. He saw several kinds of paper there tho'. "Say", Jimmy, come up here". When Jimmy saw it he knew what it was". It's a money machine. They make bad money and my dad says that they put people in jail who make bad money. They ea'l them counter feiters. You know they make counterfeit money". "Gee. I heard dad say the other day that a lot of bad money had come to the bank. I'll bet it was made here. He said they were gonna ketch 'em tho'." "But", interposed Jimmy, "did'nt they say they was gonna keep us for the money our dads would pay They're skeered to use this I guess." "Lets look around and see if we can't find somethin' to break out of here and go to town and iret dad and some more men to come out here and get these ol men". "All right lets go to the cellar and see if we cant find an ax. Thev went down stairs but it was too dark, they could'nt find any thing. "I'll tell you what. Lets go and find something to sleep on and in the morning we'll look again". UDStairs on the first floor a bed was found and the boys lay down. They were tired and the sun was bin in the heavens when they awoke next mornig. Say, were am I" sleepily asked Jimmy. "You aint nowhere 'ceptm a house in the gwoods. Don't you remember? Say, git up and lets find somethin' to eat, I'm hungry as a bear. Wonder if those hate ful ol' menjeft us anything for breakfast.' "Well I'm ormnfi trv in that nl' cellar and see if I can't find an ax while you find sompthm to eat." And Jimmy went whist lincr Hnwn the cellar Btens. ji ... i i He looked around ior amui fifteen minutes when he let out a whoop. Saw Ki i. come nere ' Bill went down there and found Jimmy peering in a hole. "Whatcha found?" "Mnnev!" shouted Jimmv. pulling out a bag, "Its full of money. Gee, we 11 be as rich as Cresaw or who ever that rich feller was. And I found an ax too That's how I found this. Gee, here's another bag, one apiece." (Continued next week) Drs.
