Terry Is manager ot the Diamond Reverse B ranch. Rustlers and small cattlemen resent his having sold his own small ranch to get to the big fellows. fel-lows. In Denver the big ranchers decide de-cide to bring in Texas ex-peace officers .yj r. ranch foreman was eating dinner at the restaurant, but after he had finished he strolled across to the post-office to wait while the fresh horses were being hitched. He asked for his mail. Ellen made a pretense of. looking, though both of them knew this was not the office to which his letters came. She came back to the window. "No mail for you, Mr. Terry . . . May I see you a minute . . . alone?" He was surprised at her request, but scarcely more than she was. For it had been born of a sudden urgent Impulse. "Of course," he replied. "Here?" Her father came into the building. "At the house if you don't mind." To Lane Carey she said: "Will you take care of the mail a little while, please?" Carey glanced at her, at Terry, and back at his daughter. "Why, yes," he agreed. He did not know what was back of this, and he did not quite like it Ellen spake to Brand, including Turley in a general bow to a couple of others present Ellen stopped with Terry in front of the pprch, coming swiftly to what was in her mind. "Isn't there any way, Mr. Terry, of stopping all this killing that is being done?" she asked. "Does it have to go on, building up hate, "Isn't there any way to stop this dreadful bitterness?" making this country an awful place to live in?" If he was moved by her indignant appeal his immobile face gave no evidence of it. "I think the trouble will go on, in one way or another, until stealing cattle is stopped," he said. "You favor murder?" she cried. "Did I say so?" he countered. "You said" She cut off her own sentence. "It doesn't matter what you said. Your friends are hiring murder done. Can you deny it?" Terry had not at first believed this. But doubts of his associates had seeped into his thinking. The Diamond Reverse B manager replied to her question with another. "Can you prove it?" "Of course I can't." Stormy-eyed, she pressed the attack. "But you know it's true. I don't know what part you have in it, but your friends are trying to stop theft by murder." "I don't know any more about it than you do," he answered, anger and obstinacy in his steel-blue eyes. "If you want this trouble stopped, go to your father and his friends. Get them to persuade the rustlers to move out What do you expect? Do you think we'll let these scoundrels steal wholesale from us and laugh in our faces when we take them to court? We are going to protect our property." .' "By killing men from ambush?" "No." A dull flush of rage beat into his face beneath the tan. "By, hanging known thieves by the neck to trees when we have enough evidence. evi-dence. Is there anything else you would like to know, Miss Carey?" , She stood, very erect and proud. "No, Mr. Terry. 1 know all I want to know about you." Turning, she walked into the house. Calhoun Terry walked back toward to-ward the stage. It was in front of the post-office. The horses were being be-ing brought out to hitch. He saw Jeff Brand move forward to meet him. , "Like a word with you, Mr. Terry," Ter-ry," he said. Terry said nothing. There is sometimes some-times a force in silence more potent than any speech. But Jeff Brand had no Jumpy nerves. "You and yore crowd have been cutting a lot of mustard. Rubbing out our friends without giving them a chance for their white alley. Not like rattlesnakes. They give warning. warn-ing. I always did claim there was vermin lower than a sidewinder. Now I've found them," In large numbers to invade the rustlers' areas and kill them. Terry objects ta the plan. Ellen Carey, daughter of the postmaster, Is Intrigued by Jeff Brand who with Jack Turley, another rustler, are most outspoken against Terry. ! . "Are you quite through?" the ranch manager asked coldly. "Not yet. I'm mentioning now that we'll take a hund in this game. Two can play it as well as one. From now on there's-an open season on Diamond Reverse B men and on those of the other big outfits. We'll be trying for the bosses, but when we don't find them handy a plain lunkhead waddy will do. The brake's done bust. We're off, and hell and high water can't stop us." "I wouldn't talk that way if I were you, Brand," Terry advised quietly. "I'm talking. You're listening. This is a message to you and to all the other damned rascals you're sleeping in a bed with. I'm making mak-ing war talk. Understand?" Calhoun Terry understood perfectly. perfect-ly. The rustler was offering him a chance to draw if he wished. Terry shook his head. "No dice, Brand. I don't know who killed these men, and I'm not going to make myself responsible for it I won't let you hang it on me by forcing it as an issue. You can't put me in the wrong that way." The cowboy jeered at him. "What do you wear that gun beside you for, Terry? Or don't you draw it unless un-less a man has his back to you?" : They were close to the porch. Terry Ter-ry knew the other two men could hear every word Brand had said. He felt a tumultuous boiling up of the blood, the recklessness ready to break out in him explosively. . Lane Carey came out on the porch, a big weather-beaten Westerner West-erner who had fought his way through the rough and tumble of frontier life. "Don't be a fool, Jeff," he said, no excitement in his even voice. "Can't you see that Mr. Terry doesn't want to fight unless you goad him to a showdown?" "I see he doesn't want to fight whether I goad him or not" Brand answered. Terry said coldly: "I choose my own causes for a fight, and I won't be maneuvered into defending assassins. as-sassins. But I'm not overly patient when bullies try to run over me." "Jeff isn't a bully, Mr, Terry," the postmaster explained placidly. "He's some excited, and kinda went off half-cockecL We can't rightly blame him for that, after his friends have been drygulched. But since you're no party to these killings nothing he has said applies to you." "You make it quite clear, Mr. Carey, Car-ey, that he couldn't possibly have meant me," Terry said, with a thin, ironic smile. "That's right, isn't it, Jeff?" Car ey persisted, his quiet urgency crowding the cowboy toward some withdrawal of his attack. "Since Mr. Terry isn't the guilty party, you could not have meant him." Jeff grudgingly gave ground. "What I said goes for the murderers, murder-ers, whoever they are." Terry followed the other passengers passen-gers into the stage. Turley laughed unpleasantly. "Mr. Terry certainly took meek the worst cussin' out I ever heard." Headed for the post-office, Carey stopped in his stride. ."Don't make a mistake about Calhoun Cal-houn Terry, boys. He's game as they come. He was giving Jeff straight goods. Unless Cal Terry has changed a lot from the young fellow I used to know, he isn't hiring anybody any-body to rub out his enemies. If it's to be done, he'll do it in the open." CHAPTER XIII For hours Calhoun Terry had been riding across territory ranged by stock of the Bartlett Land St Cattle Company. Ellison was at home. His host got out a bottle and pushed it toward Calhoun, who waved it aside with a gesture almost al-most impatient. "I've brought a message for you from Jeff Brand," Calhoun said. "From Jeff Brand? What is that scoundrel sending me a message about?" "He is serving notice that he and his friends are going to make reprisals re-prisals for the rustlers who have been murdered." Terry's gaze rested rest-ed steadily on the No, By Joe manager. man-ager. "They are going after the bosses, but if they can't get them, riders for the big outfits will have to do." . "The nerve of him!" Ellison cried. "It shows what this country has come to when a known outlaw can send such an impudent message to honest men." "We didn't need that to show us," Terry answered bluntly. "To have three men shot down from ambush in two weeks is evidence enough." Terry stopped, searching the other's oth-er's gray countenance. 'When outfits out-fits throw in together to play the same hand, Clint it ought to be played above-board for all of them to see." The other man said, after a moment's mo-ment's hesitation, "Some things are better not talked about CaL" (TO BE CONTINUED) (Bell Syndicate 1 ' I, r Mll Til Mary got into such trouble when the kept her girls and boy at home that during the first unbearable summer she opened a vacation school, with beach picnics and back-yard cookery included in the course. By KATHLEEN NORRIS THE fact that thousands of American women were dragging their; households along in a continual contin-ual state of "debt and disorganization disor-ganization was one of the supporting causes of the long depression.

The family baby had poked a firm little finger into Daddy's Dad-dy's eye, and Daddy was mad with pain and apprehension. Reducing the Overhead. The big eye specialist across the street was "at the clinic," the butler but-ler announced. So Daddy dashed three blocks to the clinic, waited 15 minutes, had his free treatment paid five cents for a prescription, and went home cured. The office visit would have cost him just $25. A wife I know had her third baby in a hospital ward last year. For the two earlier babies hospital expenses ex-penses had averaged $100 for hospital hos-pital visit $100 for doctor,' $60 for nurse, and about $25 for presents, tips, telephone, taxis and so on. This third baby's bills came to less than $100. "It wasn't quite as comfortable," she reported. "But then a baby party par-ty isn't a picnic, anyway. Jim didn't know anything about it until he got home from a trip, so he wasn't embarrassed em-barrassed or shamed. The ward was amusing, really, and the nurses nicer than any private nurse I ever had, Meals are Just the same all over the hospital. And Jim's bewildered bewil-dered face as he looked at my bills was worth seeing! Doctor $35, ward $1 a day, anesthetics and delivery room $20."

In October she began regular school work with 18 paid pupils at $10 a month. That winter she enrolled 21, and the next autumn opened the school with a registration of 40. Now there are 20 boarders and about twice that many day scholars. ; Mary has bought the old house and the adjoining property with two houses; she has painted back walls green and planted trees. Her school will never be fashionable, but it is inexpensive, as private schools go, and it is good. And Mary licked the first depression and she knows she can lick the next if and when it comes. In years when dismay and doubt and change were shaking domestic economy everywhere, the Casemans knew nothing but progress, prog-ress, prosperity and security. You can assure these to your own family by taking matters in hand now." For the next few years, more than at any time in our history, we will need family unity, family co-operation and family strength. We will need freedom from entangling entan-gling indebtedness and extravagance, extrava-gance, so that our hands won't be tied by yesterday's mistakes. Entire Family Most Help. We need, all of us, each other's help and confidence. Tired men must come home these days to peaceful and cheerful households, to a hundred, little items of good news to make up for the waves of bad news sweeping over a troubled world. Children need lessons in unselfishness un-selfishness and self-sacrifice; these are the months when they must learn to contribute what they may to the general home atmosphere of love and service and absolute belief in the eventual victory of good. We will survive these days. But meanwhile we must throw overboard over-board everything that we may of unnecessary cluttering extravagance,' extrava-gance,' debt waste, pretense, and with them their spiritual counterparts counter-parts of hate, fear, revenge, prejudice. preju-dice. So that when it comes we shall be ready for a brighter day. Device for Stopping Speeders "Hook 'em If they don't stop," is a plan of Denver R. King, of Seattle, Seat-tle, to curb motorists who drive through red traffic lights. He has patented a device to hook them as deftly as ever a bass was caught on a plug. As King explains it, his device de-vice would lay flat in the street where the traffic lights are green, then pop up out of the pavement as they turned red. A hook would snare a passing car, but would not yank out part of the chassis.
