THE HOLBROOK NEWS, HOLBROOK, ARIZ., NOVEMBER 3.
The FARRELL 8TNOP6IS. At Thornton Fs.tr rhlld's death his son Robert learns there has been dark period In hi father's life which for almost "i rty years has caused him suffer ing. The secret Is hinted at In a document left by the elder Fair child, which also Informs Robert he is now owner of a mining; claim In Colorado, and advising him to see Henry Beamish, a lawyer. Beamish tells Robert his claim, a silver mine. Is at Ohadl, thirty eight miles from Denver. He also warns htm against a certain man, "8qulnt" Rodalne, his father's en emy. Robert decides to go to Ohadl. On the road to Ohadi from Denver Katrchlld assists a girl apparently in a frenzy of haste, to change a tire on her auto. When she has left, the sheriff and a posse appear, in pursuit of a bandit. Falrchild, bewildered, misleads them as to the direction (he girt had taken. At Ohadi Fairchlld ls.warmly greeted by "Mother" Howard, boarding house keeper, for his father's sake. From Mother Howard Fairchlld learns something of the mystery connected with the disappearance of "Sissis" Lrsen. his father's co worker In the mine. He meets tha girl he had assisted, but she denies her identity. She Is Anita Rich mond. Judare Richmond's daughter. Visiting his claim. FalrcVilId la shadowed by a man he recognizes from descriptions as "Squint" Ro dalne. Back In Ohadi. his father's old friend, Harry Harklns. a Cor nlshman. summoned from England by Beamish to help Falrchild. halls him with joy. The pair find the mine flooded and have not suffi cient funds to have It pumped dry. Later In the day "Squint" Rodalne announces that be practically saw Harklns fall Into the flooded mine, and evidently is drowned. Harklns being a general favorite, the entire population turns out to clear the flooded mine. When the work la practically done, Harry appears. It had been a shrewd trick, and the men take It as a good Joke. Kali-child learns that Judge Rich mond Is dying, and that he and Anita are In the power of the Ro daines. They begin, as partners, to work the mine. In their hearts both feer Larsen was killed by Thorn to Fairchlld and his body burled by a cave-In which destroyed the mine. At the "Old Times Ball" Fairchlld dances with Anita, to the discomfiture of Maurice Rodalne. son of "Squint." supposed to be engaged to the girl. A bandit holds up the dance and shoots a merry maker. Maurice Rodalne claims he recognized the bandit as Harklns. The latter is arrested. Fairchlld Interferes to save Anita from the bullying of the two Rodaines. and la mystified at Anita's apparent Ingratitude. CHAPTER X The Rodaines were on the sidewalk when Fotrchlkl came forth from the Richmond home, and true to his In structions from the frightened girl, he brushed past them swiftly and went on down the street, not turniug at the mattered invectives which came from the crooked lips of the older man, not eetntng even to notice their presence as he hurried on toward Mother How ard's boarding house. In his creaky bed he sought to think, but in vain. After hours, daylight begun to streak the sky. Fairchiid, dull, worn by ex citement and fatigue, strove to rise, then laid his head on the pillow for Just a moment of rest. And with that perversity which extreme weariness so often exerts, his eyes closed, and he slept to wake at last with the realization that it was late morning, and that some one was pounding on the door. Fairchiid raised his head. -Who is itr -No one you know yet. I've come to talk to you about your partner. May I come In?" "Yes." Fairchlld was fully alive now to the activities that the day held lief ore him. The door opened, and a young man, alert, almost cocky in man ner, with black, snappy eyes showing behind horn-rimmed glasses, entered and reached for the sole chair that the room contained. "My name's Fnrrell," he announced. "Randolph P. Farrell. And to make long story short. I'm your lawyer.' "My lawyer?" Fairchiid stared. "I Haven't any lawyer in Ohadi. The only " That doesn't alter the fact. IV your lawyer, and Fm at your service. And I don't mind telling you that it's Just about my first case. Otherwise I don't guess Td have gotten It" -Why not?" The frankness had driv en other queries from Fairchild's mind. Farrell, the attorney, grinned cheerily. "Because I understand it concerns the Rodaines." Nearly everybody has a little money stuck into their enter ITises. An I seeing I have no money Kt all. Fm not financially Interested. And not being interested, Pro wholly Jo.it, fair and willing to fight 'em to a standstill. Tour partner's in Jail, as T understand It. Guilty or not guil ty?" "Wu wait a minute! Who hired you?" Then with a sudden Inspira tion : "Mother Howard didn't go and do this?" "Mother Howard? Ton mean the woman who runs the boarding house1 Not at all." "But" "I'm not exactly at liberty to state." Suspicion began to assert itself. "Under those conditions, I don't be lieve " "Don't say it! Don't get started along those lines. I know what you're thinking. Knew that was what would ?iannen from thi Rtnrr A n.l 0nt... ' ' - ouiuai the wishes of the person who hired ne for this work, 1 well, I brought the evidence. Here, take a glimpse and then throw it away, tear it up. wallow it. or do anything you want to with It, Just so nobody else sees It. Ready? Look." He drew forth a small visiting card. Falrchild glanced. Then he 'looked and then he snt up straight in bed. Tor bf fore him were the engraved vords : Cross By Courtney Ryley Cooper Oepyrlffct by Little, Brown Oo. "Miss Anita Natalie Richmond." While across the card was hastily written. In a hand distinctively femi nine: ; "Mr. Falrchild: This is my good friend. He will help you. There Is no fee attached. Please destroy. "Anita Richmond." "Bn but I don't understand." "You know Miss er the writer of this card, don't you?" "But why should she?" Mr. Farrell grinned broadly. "I see you don't know Miss the writer of this card at all. That's her nature. Besides well, all she's got to do with me is crook her finger and I'll Jump through. Tm none of your business. But, anyway, here I am " Falrchild could not restrain a laugh. There was something about the man, about his nervous, yet boyish way of speaking, about his enthusiasm, that wiped out suspicion and Invited con fidence. The owner of the Blue Pop py mine leaned forward. - "But you didn't finish your sentence about the writer of that card." "You mean oh well, there's noth ing to that I'm in love with her. Been in love with her since I've been knee high to a duck. So 're you. So's every other human being that thinks he's a regular man. So's Maurice Rodalne. Don't know about the rest of you but I haven't got a chance. Don't let it bother you. The problem right now Is to get your partner out of Jail. How much money have you got?" "Only a little more than two thous and." "Not enough. There'll be bonds on four charges. At the least they'll be around a thousand dollars apiece. Probabilities are that they'll run around ten thousand for the bunch. How about the Blue Poppy?" "I don't know what It's worth." "Neither do I. Neither does the Judge. Neither does any one else. Therefore, It's worth at least ten thous and dollars. That'll do the trick. I'd suggest now that you get up, seize your deeds and accompany me to the palace of Justice. Otherwise, that partner of yours will have to eat dinner In a place called In undignified language the hoosegow !" Soon Falrchild was dressed and walked hurriedly up the street with the voluble attorney. A half-hour more and they were before the court, Falrchild, the lawyer and the Jail-worn narry, his mustache fluttering In more directions than ever. "Not guilty. Your Honor," said Ran dolph P. Farrell. "May I ask the ex tent of the bond?" The Judge adjusted his glasses and studied the information which the dis trict attorney had laid before him. "In view of the number of charges and the seriousness of each, I must fix an aggregate bond of five thousand dollars, or twelve hundred fifty dollars for each case." Thank you ; we had come prepared for more. Mr. Falrchild, who is Mr. Harklns' partner, is here to appear as bondsman. The deeds are in his name alone, the partnership existing, as I understand it, upon their word of hon or between them. I refer, Your Honor, to the deeds of the Blue Poppy mine. Would Your Honor care to examine them?" His Honor would. His Honor did. For a long moment he studied them, and Fairchlld, in looking about the courtroom, saw the bailiff in conversa- "Bond Accepted I'll Set This Trial for" tion with a tall, thin man, with squint eyes and a scar-marked forehead. A moment later, the Judge looked over his glasses. "Bailiff!" "Yes, Your Honor." "Have you any information regard ing the value of the Blue Poppy min ing claims?" "Sir, I have Just been talking to Mr. Rodalne. He says they're well worth the value of the bond." "How about that, Rodalne?" The Judge peered down the courtroom. They'll do," was his answer, and the Judge passed the papers to the clerk of the court "Bond accepted. I'll set this trial for November 11." "Very well. Your Honor." Then he turned with a wide grin to his clients. That's all until November." Out they filed through the narrow aisle of the courtroom, Fairchild's knee brushing the trouser leg of Squint Rodalne as they passed. At the door, th! attorney turned toward them, then put forth a hand. - Cut ' "Drop In any day this week and we'll go over things," he announced cheerfully. "We put one over on his royal Joblots that time, anyway. Hates me from the ground up. Worst we con hope for is a conviction and then a Supreme court reversal. I'll get him so mad he'll fill the case with errors. He used to be an Instructor down at Boulder, and I stuck the pages of a lecture together on him one day. That's why I asked for an early trial. Knew he'd give me a late one. That'll let us have time to stir up a little favorable evidence, which rignt-now we don't possess. Understand all money thut comes from the mine Is held In escrow until this case is decided. But I'll ex plain that Going to stick around here and bask In the effulgence of really possessing a case. S'longl". And he turned baci Into the court room, while Fairchlld, the dazed Har ry stalking beside him, started down the street "'Ow do you figure It?" asked the Cornlshman at last "What?" "Rodalne. 'E 'elped us outl" Fairchlld stopped. It had not oc curred to him before. But now he saw It: that if Rodalne, as an expert on mining, had condemned the Blue Poppy, it could have meant only one thing, the denial of bond by the Judge and the lack of freedom for Harry. Falrchild rubbed a hand across his brow. "I can't figure it" came at last "And especially since his son Is the accuser and since I got the best of them both last night!" "Got the best of 'em? You?" The story was brief In Its telling. And It brought no explanation of the sudden amiability displayed by the crooked-faced Rodalne. They went on, striving vainly for a reason, at last to stop In front of die post office, as the postmaster leaned out of the door. "Your name's Fairchlld, isn't lt7" asked the person of letters. "Yes." Thought so. Some of the fellows said you was. There's been a letter for you here for two days!" "For me?" Vaguely Fairchlld went within and received the missive, a plain, bond envelope without a re turn address. He turned it over and over in his hand before he opened It then looked at the postmark Den ver. At last: "Open It why don't you?" Hnrry's mustache, was tickling his ear, as the big miner stared over bis shoulder. Before them were figures and sentences which blurred for a mo ment, finally to resolve Into: "Mr. Robert Fairchlld, "Ohadl, Colorado. "Dear Sir: "I am empowered by a client whose name I am not at liberty to state, to make you an offer of $50,000' for your property in Clear Creek county, known as the Blue Poppy mine. In replying, kindly address your letter to "Box 180, Denver, Colo." Harry whistled long and thoughtful ly. "That's a 'ole lot of money 1" "An awful lot Harry. But why was the offer made? There's nothing to base It on. There's " Then for a moment, as they stepped out of the post office, he gave up the thought, even of comparative riches. Twenty feet away, a man and a girl were approaching, talking as though there never had been the slightest trouble between them. It was Maurice Rodalne and Anita Richmond; they came closer, her eyes turned toward Fairchiid, and then She went on, without speaking, with out taking the trouble to notice, ap parently, that he had been standing there. After this, there was little conversa tion until Harry and Fairchlld had reached the boarding house. Then, with Mother Howard for an adviser. the three gathered In the old parlor, and Fairchlld related the events of the night before, adding what had happened at the post office, when Ani ta had passed him without speaking. Mother Howard, her arms folded as usual, bobbed her gray head. "It's like her. Son," she announced at last "She's a good girl. I've known her ever since she was a little tad not big enough to walk. And she loves her father" "But" "She loves her father. Isn't that enough? The Rodaines have the money and they have almost every thing that Judge Richmond owns. It's easy enough to guess what they've done with It tied it up so that he can't touch It until they're ready for him to do It And they're not going to do that until they've gotten what they want." "Which Is?" "Anita I Any fool ought to be able to know that That stroke last night was the second one for the Judge. There usually ain't any more after the third one. Now, can't you see why Anita is willing to do anything on earth Just to keep peace and Just to give her father a little rest and com fort and happiness In the last days of his life? You've got to remember that he ain't like an ordinary father that you can go to and tell all your trou bles to. He's laying next door to death, and Anita, Just like any woman that's got a great, big, good heart in her. Is willing to face worse than death to help bim. It's as plain to me as the nose on Harry's face." "Which Is quite plain," agreed Fair- child ruefully, narry rubbed the li beled proboscis, pawed at his mus tache and fidgeted in his chair. "I understand that, all right" he announced at last. "But why should anybody want to buy the mine?" It brought Falrchild to the realiza tion of a new development, and he brought forth the letter, once more to stare at it "Fifty thousand dollars Is a lot of money," came at last. "And what theu?" Mother Howard, still looking through uncolored glasses, took the letter and scanned It "You two ain't quitters, are you?" M,Oo, us?" Harry bristled. "Yes, you. If you are, get your selves a piece of paper and write to Denver and take the offer. If you ain't keep on fighting." "I believe you're right Mother How ard." Fairchlld had reached for the letter again and was staring at It as though for inspiration. That amount of money seems to be a great deal. Still, If a person will offer that much for a mine when there's nothing in sight to show its value, It ought to mean that, there's something dark in the woodpile and that the thing's worth fighting out And personally speaking, I'm willing to fight I" "I never quit In my life!" Harry straightened In his chair and his mus tache stuck forth pugnaciously. Moth er Howard looked down at him, pressed her lips, then smiled. "No," she announced, "except to run away like a whipped pup after you'd gotten a poor lonely boarding-house keeper in love with you!" "Mother 'Oward, I'll" But the laughing, gray-haired wom an had scrambled through the door way and slammed the door behind her, only to open it a second later and poke her head within. "Needn't think because you can hold up a dance hall and get away with it yon can use cave-man stuff on me!" she admonished. And In that one sen- "Shut 'Em Offl Ifs Sucking the Muck Out of the Sump!" tence was all the conversation neces sary regarding the charges against Harry, as far as Mother Howard was concerned. She didn't believe them, and Harry's face showed that the world had become bright and serene again. He swung his great arms as though to loosen the big muscles of his shoulders. He pecked at hia mus tache. Then he turned to Falrchild. "Well." he asked, "what do we do? Go up to the mine Just like nothing 'ad ever 'appened?" "Exactly. Walt until I change my clothes. Then we'll be ready to start. Pm not even going to dignify this let ter by replying to It. And for one principal reason " he added "that I think the Rodaines have something to do with it" "'Ow so?" "I don't know. Til be ready in a moment." An hour later they entered the mouth of the Blue Poppy tunnel, once more to start the engines and to re sume the pumping, meanwhile strug gling back and forth with timbers from the mountain side, as they began the task of rehabilitating the tunnel where it bad caved In Just beyond the shaft Hour after hour they tolled, until the gray mists hung low over the mountain tops, until the shadows lengthened and twilight fell. The en gines ceased their chugging, the cough ing swirl of the dirty water as It came from the drift, far below, stopped. Slowly two weary men Jogged down the rutty road to the narrow, winding highway which led through Kentucky gulch and Into town. That night Fairchiid did not lie awake to stare about him in the dark ness. His eyes closed wearily, yet with a wholesome fatigue. Nor did he wake until Harry was pounding on the door in the dawn of the morn ing. Once more the pumps; once more the Struggle against the heavy tim bers; once more the "clunk" of the ax as It bit deep into wood, or the pounding of hammers as great spikes were driven Into place. The timber ing of the broken-down portion of the tunnel Just behind the shaft had been repaired, and Harry flipped the sweat away from his broad forehead with au action of relief. "Not that it does any particular good," he announced. "But it's room well need when we start working down below, and we might as well 'ave It fixed up " He ceased suddenly and ran to the PREPARING GREEN TEA IN JAPAN Process l Long and Complicated, and Involves the Employment of Much Labor. As soon as possible after being picked, the tea leaves are placed on a round tray, with a brass wire bottom, over boiling water. This process of steaming, which is completed in half a minute, brings the natural oil to the surface. The next and principal op eration Is firing, which is done on a wooden frame, with thick Japanese pa per stretched across it charcoal well covered with ashes being the fuel em ployed. This first firing is dontf at a temperature of about 120 degrees Fahrenheit Meanwhile the leaf is manipulated for hours by men who roll It Into balls with the palms of their pumps. A peculiar gurgling .-ouilj ii.nl come from the ends of the ln-e, and the flow depreciated greatly, nstead of the steady gush of water, slimy slit was coming out now, spray. ug and splattering about on the sides, of the drainage ditch. Wildly Harry waved a monstrous paw. "Shut 'era off!" he yelled to Fair chlld In the dimness of the tunnel. "It's sucking the muck out of the sump! That means the 'ole drift Is unwatered." Then the pumping Job's over?" "Yeh." Harry rose. "You stay ere and dismantle the pumps, so we can send 'em back. I'll go to town. We've got to buy some stuff." Then he started off down the trail, while Fairchlld went to his work. And he tang as he dragged at the heavy hose. Work was before him, work which was progressing toward a goal that he had determined to seek, In spite of all obstacles. The mysterious offer which he had received gave evi dence that something awaited him, that some one knew the real value of the Blue Poppy mine, and that If he could simply stick to his task, If he could hold to the unwavering purpose to win In spite of all the blocking pitfalls that were put in his path, some day, some time, the reward would be worth its price. More, the conversation with Mother Howard on the previous morning had been comforting; It had given a wom an's viewpoint upon another woman'! actions. And Fairchlld intuitively be lieved she was correct. A shout from the roafl, accompanied by the roaring of a motor truck, an nounced the fact that Harry was mak ing his return. Five men were with him, to help him catry In ropes, heavy pulleys, weights and a large metal shaft bucket, then to move out the smaller of the pumps and trundle away with them, leaving the larger one and the larger engine for a single load. At last Harry turned to his paraphernalia and rolled up his sleeves. "'Ere's where we work!" he an nounced. "It's us for a pulley and bucket arrangement until we can get the 'olst to working and the skip to running. 'Elp me 'eave a few timbers." It was the beginning of a three days' Job, the building of a heavy stag ing over the top of the shaft, the affix ing of the great pulley and then the attachment of the bucket at one end, and the skip, loaded with pig iron, on the other. Altogether, it formed a sort of crude, counterbalanced ele vator, by which they might lower themselves Into the shaft with various bumpings and delays but which worked successfully, nevertheless. To gether they plied into the .big. Iron bucket, Harry lugging along spikes and timbers and sledges and ropes. Then, pulling away at the cable which held the weights, they furnished the neces sary gravity te travel downward. An eerie Jocraey, faced on one side by the crawling rope of the skip as it traveled along the rusty old track on its watersoaked ties, on the other by the still dripping timbers of the aged shaft and its broken, rotting ladder, while the carbide lanterns cast shad ows about while the pulley above creaked and the eroded wheels of the skip squeaked and protested 1 Down ward a hundred feet and they col lided with the upward-bound skip, to fend off from it and start on again. The air grew colder, more moist. The carbides spluttered and flared. A slight bump, and they were at the bottom. Before them the drift tun nel, damp and dripping and dark, awaited, seeming to throw back the flare of the carbides as though to shield the treasures which might lie beyond. Harry started forward a step, then pausing, shifted his carbide and laid a hand on his companion's shoul der. "Boy," he said slowly, "we're start ing at something now and . I don't know where it's going to lead us. There's a cave-in up 'ere, and if we're ever going to get anywhere in this mine, we'll 'ave to go past It And Tm afraid of what we're going to find when we cut our wye through!" Clouds of the past seemed to rise and float past Falrchild clouds which carried visions of a white, brok en old man sitting by a window, wait ing for death, visions of an old safe and a letter it contained. For a long, long moment, there was silence. Then came Harry's voice again. 'Tm afraid it ain't going to be good news, Boy. But there ain't no wye to get around it It's got to come out sometime things like that won't stay 'idden forever. And your father's gone now gone where it can't 'urt Mm." "I know," answered Fairchlld, in a queer, husky voice. "He must have known, Harry he must have been will ing that it come, now that he is gone. He wrote me as much." "It's that or nothing. If we sell the mine, some one else will find It. And we can't 'it the vein without following the drift to the stope. But you're the one to make the decision." "He told me to go ahead. If neces sary. And we'll go, Harry." "Yes, I know who did It, and I know who got killed. It was 'Sissie' Larsen and he was murdered." (TO BE CONTINUED.) hands. The final result Is obtained when each leaf becomes separately twisted, and changes color to a dark olive green. Two more firings at a lower temperature follow, after which the leaf Is allowed to dry until it be comes quite brittle. When the proc ess ia complete the tea is kept strictly dry, as moisture destroys its aroma. Tea so made is the genuine Japan tea, or what Is commonly known In Amer ica as "green tea." East and West. To Mend Crack In Basin. When a large white basin is cracked, paint over the crack with a piece. of white enamel. Then lay on a piece of white tape and give another coat of enamel. This will prevent the basin from breaking. IMPROVED ROADS PAINT HELPS STEEL BRIDGES Life of Many Structures Shortened by Infrequent and Improper Treatment. (Prepared by the United States Department ot Acrculture.) The life of many steel highway bridges is materially shortened, be cause of Infrequent and improper painting, says the bureau of public roads of the United States Department of Agriculture. Each year a conslder- A Dangerous Bridge This Rusting Could Have Been Prevented by Painting. able amount of money Is spent for the replacement of rusted bridge members that would have remained sound if they had been kept painted ; and more serious than he waste of money is the thinner to the public due to the weak ening of some hidden part which may ause the collapse of the whole bridge. Oflicials of the bureau urge that all iteel bridges be inspected at least once ach year and repainted at the first sign of rusting. Normally repainting is required at periods of from two to five years, depending on the climate. A suitable paint should be used, and if there is uncertainty about any point, information should be requested from !he state highway department. It Is a mistake to repaint without properly cleaning the metal of all dirt, rust, loose paint, and blisters. Usually !he places hardest to reach are the ones that sltould receive the most at tention. PROBLEMS IN ROAD BUILDING Officials of State Organizations and Bureau of Public Roads Dis cuss Questions. (Prepared by the United States Department of Asrlculture.) The committee on tests of the American Society of State Highway Officials met with the officials of the bureau of public roads of the United States Department of Agriculture, in Washington, June 26 and 27, to con sider standardization of specifications and tests for road materials. The purpose of this meeting of representa tives from all sections of the country was not so much to lay down rigid rules as to harmonize the general practice. Standardization taking into account local conditions is being brought about by a series of meetings between officials from groups of states and engineers of the bureau. The present activity of highway of ficials along this line is most encourag ing for road building. A few years ago the general tendency was toward individuality ia each state, without much opportunity! for exchange of ideas and knowledge. Today the ten dency is in the other direction, and a better solution should be reached when the problems are discussed at meetings of the best highway engi neering talent of the country. BOOM IN HIGHWAY BUILDING Federal Aid Has Been Most Impor tant Factor of Recent Years in ' Road Construction. Federal aid has been probably the most important factor in the big boom in highway building of recent years, and there are now many long stretches of trunk-line highway serving rich ag ricultural and industrial sections of the country which are almost entirely federal-aid construction. The United States Department of Ag riculture, which administers the federal-aid fund, points out that a trav eler going from Richmond, Ind., to St. Louis across Indiana and the southern part of Illinois, thence to Chicago by way of Springfield and Peoria, a dis tance of approximately 679 miles, would travel 505 miles, or 75 per cent of the way, on federal-aid highways, practically all of which should be In service by the end of the present sea son. Daily Life Affected. There is no phase of our daily life which has not been materially and se riously affected in some way by the roads which pass the door. . 5 Brings Doctor to Door. It Is the highway that brings the doctor to the door and it is over the highway that we go for most of the important events of- our life. Clover for Chicken Feed.
