Diego shrugged "Alive I think, senor, when he leave the ranch. But now qulen sabe?" Barker hesitated. But after all, be concluded, what difference did It make? He bad the girl; that was the main thing. There was plenty of time to attend to Go Abend's case later. And Wade was In a hurry to get to the Roost. "All right," he said. "You and your other man go back and hurry Tony up. Turn over the nigger to somebody." From Diego's hand he took the bridle rein of Stella's horse and turned away. Wade was watching. When Barker turned toward him be waved his band. "All right, boys," be said, wearily, and started ahead. But be swayed, In bis saddle as be rode; his wound, coupled with the Intense physical and mental stress of the last twenty-fou- r hours, had brought him very close to bis ultimate limit It was an hour later when Barker and Stella, looking back from the crest of the last swell, beyond which lay a wide expanse of loose and continually shifting sand on which the horses' hoofs left no permanent trace, saw a ' rider In the dirty white clothes affected by the Mexican peons leading a laden horse down the slope that they had last crossed. The Interval was too great to permit real scrutiny, but neither, Barker nor Stella doubted ftiat It was Antonio with the recaptured Jjorseknd prisoner. Later, as the two ' followers drew steadily nearer, Stella bowed ber bead hopelessly. And Barker, reading ber face, was so well satisfied that when the newcomers caught up with the bandits, at the verge of the waterfall, he did not take the trouble to go back to examine bis beaten rival. Once Inside the valley and at the village Wade, climbing painfully down from bis saddle, staggered away to his cabin and went In. lie asked no help and he received none. The men regarded both him and Barker with hostile eyes, blaming their present difficult situation upon his leadership and falling to find any consolation In the capture of Stella and two prisoners, of whom they knew Many of them practically nothing. put up their horses and then gathered with frowning brows to talk things over; others rode directly to their quarters, snatched up what they could carry safely, and hurried away out by the waterfall entrance. Barker, bowever, did not note any of this. The capture of Stella and Go Ahead bad gone to bis bead. Once more be felt triumphantly victorious. Up to the door of Fair's house he led Stella. "Go In," be ordered. "Put on those woman's clothes 1 brought you and wait till I send for you." Stella apparently did not hear t.lm. She was looking about ber for Fair. "Where Is my father?" she demanded. "Fair is not your father. If you mean him, he's dead." "Dead?" "Tea, I'm sorry for you and for blm. But he got In the boys' way lart night, and they shot him." "Who did? Wade?" Stella's voice was deadly. Barker hesitated. "Maybe. I don't know," be answered. "I wasn't here. There was a lot of shooting. But that's over and done with. And we ain't got time to waste. Too do as 1 tell you. Tut oo those woman's thing, and wait." Stella stared at biro. "1 know wby you want to marry me," she raid "Wade told me yesterday.

If you don't do It he'll be no use to me as a witness and I'll turn him over to Wade. . . . Wade loves him, you know." "You beast!" "All right Say what you like now; but see that you talk right later If you want your man to live. Now go In and put on those things I told you to." lie pushed the girl inside the door and shut it upon her. Then be strode away to Wade's cabin, nearby. Wade himself was not visible, but in front of the cabin stood the two horses with their silent burdens. The man who had last Joined the cavalcade was Just hitching his own horse at the rack. Barker paid no attention to hip. Instead he strode up to the horses, recognized Caesar by his color and turned to the other. "Is be dead?" he asked of the guard, who came hurrying up, as he bent to peer into the captive's face. Then abruptly he felt the muzzle of a ' pistol thrust against his ribs and voice In his heard a ears. "Not so dead as you'll be If you make any breaks," it said. In steely tones. Slowly Barker straightened up. tils was ghastly face, agape In Its pallor. "Go Ahead 1" he gapped. "Yes. Now you go ahead Into this bouse. Keep your bands by your sides, but don't try any tricks If you want to live." Obeying, Barker felt himself swiftly and completely disarmed. "Now go, to the back room," or"Let's see what's dered Go Ahead. become of Wade." One pace behind, he followed Barker to the door. Wade was In the room, but as Go Ahead had conjectured, he was clearly out of the game. Stretched on the bed. he was suuk In a stupor that Go Ahead merely final. looked glanced at him; then he waved Barker back to the first room, followed blm, and closed the door. "Call two of your men," he ordered. "Tell them to untie my man Caesar and bring him In and lay him on the lounge yonder. Tell them to handle blm gently, that you want him to give you some Information. Then tell one of the men to bring Bob here. Put It In your own words, but get the Idea over. And remember, I'll be right behind you and that one false move means death." Like one In a dream Barker obeyed. To the door he went, closely followed by Go Ahead, called two men who were passing and gave them Go Ahead's orders. Then be came back, sat down behind the table and waited until Caesar, weak, tottery, hut still alive, staggered In between the men and collapsed on the lounge. Then be gave the order to tell Bob to come to him. When the men bad gone Oo Anead turned to Caesar. "How do you feel, old man?" he asked, affectionately. Caesar's eyes rested on him, at Brst hesitantly, then with dawning recognition. "Mr. George, Mr. George I" he cried. "Glory, glory I I thought yoo was killed, Mr. George."

Few Americans know anything more about L'Enfant than a somewhat vague idea associating his name with the phrase "the founder of Washington." Yet had the advice of this young French engineer been followed, the United States of America would have now the most beautiful and Impressive capital city in the world. Even though the nation allowed him to die a disappointed man, his goal unreached, yet he dreamed and planned to such good purpose that not even a hundred years of blindness to beauty and neglect of the opportunity at hand have been sufficient to dim his vision splendid, and the United States may yet have the wonderful capital that he planned for it. Pierre Charles L'Enfant was born August 2, 1734, somewhere In sunny France. He was a lieutenant In the French army In 1777 when he came to this country and offered his services to the Continental congress. By his ability he rose to the rank of captain and then to major, lie planned anil built Fort MIfllin nnd Fort Washington, fought through the remainder of the war, was wounded at the battle of Savannah, taken prisoner bySirlh-nrClinton In 17S0 and paroled three years later. With the war at an end, L'Enfant decided to remain in this country and continue his career us an engineer and architect. The ciiy of New York presented him with a testimonial for his services nnd his reputation was so high that President Washington selected him In I'M to lay out the new capital which was planned on the banks of the Potomac, declaring that "Major L'Enfant Is as well qualified for the work as any man living." To this Thomas Jefferson, secretary of state, added the Indorsement, "I am happy the President has left the planning of the city in such good hands." Certainly It needed the hand of a genius to transform the "dismal hamlet on the Potomac" Into a city befitting the dignity of the capital of a oatlon. - For when President John Adams transferred the seat of governand gay ment from the Philadelphia to this raw wilderness town, he found It a place of thirty er forty huts scattered around In the woods and swamps and the beginning?! of the public buildings, described by a congressman In Adams' party as fol- pound. PROVO Inspectors of the California department of agriculture have iuaaaBKv aivrrKB.- or rxmui. I rd c -- i 1 , .1 Ifc le . one-thi- sfZt is Me-cha- the slightest Idea of killing him.

I'll need some one to go East with us and testify In court that you married me willingly and all that, with-terror- I gress House, as he called them, by a series of parks. But President-elec- t John Adams could not see the sense of having these two Important buildings so far apart. He wanted the executive and legislative buildings huddled together. Convenience and not beauty was his Idea. However. Washington stood steadfastly by L'Enfant and Uie buildings were so placed, although L'Enfant's dream of the parks between was never realized. In fact, he was repeatedly frustrated in his planning; he was ridiculed by unimaginative and materialistic men who were high In office nnd from the time tlie seat of government was moved to Washington, he was constantly begging congress to pay him the money due hira. Finally, that body In 1810 passed a bill for bis relief, giving hira $tif.0.fiC with Interest from March 16, 1792, amounting in all to $1,394.20. Tljis was done more because congress was becoming weary of his Importunity than for any other reason and It was typical of the tardy Justice with which the new republic rewarded the men, including Revolumiy ofwar heroes, to whom It owed tionary so much. L'Enfant died In 1S25, a heartbroken man. During his last years he lived with a man named Dudley Dlggs and be was burled In the Dlggs family graveyard outside the city of Washington. There bis body lay In an unmarked grave for nearly a hundred years. Then through the efforts of the American Institute of Architects It was removed to Arlington cemetery. He was given a military funeral and tributes were paid to him by higb government officials, both American and French. A monument, with his plan carved on the marble slab, overlooks the city for which be had dreamed on such a grand scale and which during the years while he lay In the unmarked grave had sprawled haphazard over the landscape.

He could not foresee that it would irrow so big, L'Enfant's city was to be only two and a half miles wide and three and a half miles ong. His plan for that city Is today as be made It, needing only beautiflcation. The city did not grow much bigger until the War of Secession, when it underwent a sudden and fictitious exThen the speculators began pansion. to get in their work.

Yet bo meticulously had .L'Enfant laid out the plan It was not possible to turn It Into confusion even when ged and Ignorance had done their worst. The new city. the greater Washington, had to grow generally along L Lnfant a lines In spite of Itself. But It was cursed and degraded by defacements. Impertinent buildings Interjected themselves Into the plan; streets ambled off Into the Land ot Nod and disappeared. L'Enfant's pet lay fallow, though fantasy, the MalL be had planned so wisely that nothing can prevent ita flowering Into consum o wills. mation whenever congress The distortion of the original Idea had become such an eyesore by 1901 that a congressional commission, headed by Senator James McMillan, of Michigan, set about restoring the L'Enfant plan wherever It bad been departed from, and embodied Its praiseworthy attempt In legislation which atlll rules. Ever aince then the task of unifying and greatenlng Washington has been carried indef atigably on, and succeeding congrenaea have been more and mora friendly and attentive. The present plan, put Into operation some two years ago by the public buildings commission, beaded by Senator Smoot of Utah and having an Initial fund of $0,000,000 at Its disposal, follows closely the plan of L'Enfant. The outstanding feature in It Is the Mall or Monument Gardens, extending from the Washington monument to the capitol and flanked by new federal buildings. And If this plan Is completed, as it Is hoped it will be, In time for the George Washington celebration In 1932, some of the honor paid that great American tjjen will be shared by the young French engineer whom he backed In his effort to give this country a capital city beautiful.
