Yet how impover-ished this country would be without them. We extend to our Governor Mabey a hearty handshake, who after visiting the scene of this frightful disas-ter advocated a revision of the State laws and said "The com-pensation law does not take into consideration whether there is a dozen dependents in fiixing .compensation, but all receive on-ly $16.00 a week for 312 weeks. This was believed to be ade-quate to care for some cases but others where eleven dependents had been left, I do not believe it will be sufficient." F. M. McShane, Chairman of the State Industrial Commission after visiting the scene says : "Too much credit cannot be given the Utah Fuel Company for the manner in which it is handling affairs. "Its decision to accept liability and pay compensation claims as well as wages to dependents of dead miners the minute depen-dency is established is one of the most creditable stands ever not-ed. "The company has a right from examples to hold up back wages until estates have been administered but the company is proceeding at once to pay back wages and in a score of other ways is evidencing desire to waive all legal points and get the relief where it is needed." The whole of this State owes the dependents of these men a debt. How can it be' paid and repaid bigger heads will have to decide. Let us remember with grati-tude what these noble men, who have paid with their lives have done for us, and if possible let us give as in the warring days "until it hurts." Thousands of dollars have al-ready been subscribed to help people in the Far East. Charity begins at home the people of Castle Gate need our deepest sympathy and dollars. Let's show them what Bingham can do.

There is an aptitude for some people who have never lived or worked in a mining community to underrate the value and char-acter of miner. Yet these men give much to humanity. Their hazardous oc- - cupation subjects them to dan-ger, privation and misfortune. Any miner engaged in the coal , mining industry or even quartz ; mining are responsive to the best.

The lawyer droned on. Presently he came to It: "And the residue of my estate to be divided equally be-tween my nephew Harry and my niece Mary." The rest of the relatives resigned themselves to the expected. "On condition that they ahaU not marry with one another."

He felt al-most friendly to Mary. "I guess It Isn't troubling you either, MaryT" "Not so you'd noUce It," Mary an-swered T" The relatives laughed, too. Every one had known that the two were Uncle Timothy's favorite niece and nephew. But what an absurd condi-tion! If they had cared for each other, and Uncle Timothy bad had some spe-cial reason for not wanting them to marry, It would have been all under-standable. But the mean things they used to say about each other I It was odd, but Harry, who had never given Mary a spare thought, began to think about her quite a little after be had Inherited the money. She ac-quired a new Interest In his eyes. He met her a few weeks later at Aunt Jemima's. "Wen, not thinking of forfeiting that legacy, are you, MaryT" he asked. "It Isn't worrying me," answered Mary. "Uncle Timothy must have been out of bis mind." "I quite agree with you," Harry re-plied. They felt so much delight to think the legacy was safe that tbey began going out of their way to meet each other. At the end of three months Harry had discovered that Mary was really quite a nice glrL They had similar Interests, too.

"Then let's do It" "You'll stop caring." "Never." It took another week to bring her around. At the end of that time the two appeared In the lawyer's office.

Bingham Basketeers Lose Out Jordan and Bingham, the two teams eliminated from cham-pionship competition in the semi-finals settled their season's dis-pute Saturday night, Jordan winning 22 to 19. The teams had tied in their division race, each having won a game from the other, and both registering their victories on their oppon-ents court. The game Satur-day gives Jordan the edge, but it is a small edge. Both scored nine field goals, but Jordan scored four out of seven foul pitches as opposed to but one out of six for Bingham.

"And yet they are here together, din--' Ing tete-a-tet- on a night when It must have needed more than ordinary cour-age for either of them to have been seen ln public at all," Wllinore pointed out "It Is as astounding to me as It is to you." Francis confessed. "From the way she spoke, I should never have dreamed that they were living to-gether." "And from his appenrance," Wllmore remarked, as he called the. waiter to bring some cigarettes, "I should never have Imagined that he was anything else save a well-bor-straightforward sort of chap. I never aw a less criminal type of face." They each In turn glanced at the sub-ject of their discussion. Oliver good looks had been the subject of many press comments during the last few days. They were certainly . undeniable. His face whs a little lined, but his hair was thick and brown, tils . features were regular, his forehed high and thoughtful, his mouth a trifle thin but straight and shnpely. Fronds gazed at him like a man en (ran red The hours seemed fo have slipped away. He was back ln the tea simp. . listening to the womnn who tpoke of terrible tilings. He felt again his shiv-ering abhorrence of her cold, clearly aarruted story. Agiiln he shrunk from the horrors from which with merciless fingers she hud stripped the coverings. , He seemed to see once more the agony In her white fure, to hear the eternal pain nelilng and throbbing In her mo-notonous tone. He rose suddenly to hU feet. "Andrew,'.' he begged, "tell the fel-low to lulng the bill outside. We'll have our coffee and liqueurs there." Wllnture ncquiesced willingly enough, but even as they turned towards the door Francis realized whnt was In store for him. Oliver ilifdltch hud risen to his feet. With a courteous little geHtcre he Intercepted the pnss-erby- . Francis found himself standing nld9 by side with the man fur whose life he hud pleaded that afternoon, within s few feet of the woman whose terrible story seemed to have poisoned the very atmosphere he breathed, to hnve shown him a new horror In Pfe, to have temporarily, at any rate, mi- - dernilned every Joy nnd ambition he possessed. "Mr. Letlsam." Illbiltrh said, speak-Infc- - with quiet dignity, "1 hope that yo.j will forgive the liberty I take In to you here. I looked for you the moment I was free tills after-noon, but found that yon had left the court. 1 owe you my good name, prol-abl- y my life.

Outside, he found Wllmore deep ln tno discussion of the merits of va-rious old brandies with an Interested maltre d'hotel, "Any choice, Francis?" his host In-quired. "None whatever," was the prompt reply, "only, for God's sake, give me a double one quickly I" The two men were on the point of departure when Oliver Hlldltch nnd his wife left the restaurant. As though conscious that they had become the subject of discussion; as Indeed wss the case, thanks to the busy whispering of the varlous waiters, they pnssed without lingering through the lounge Into the entrance hall, where Francis and Andrew Wllmore were al-ready waiting for a tnxleab. Almost as they appeared, a new arrival was ushered through the main entrance, followed by porters carrying luggage. He brushed past Francis so closely that the latter looked Into his face, half attracted and half repelled by the waxen-lik- e complexion, the pierc-ing eyes, and the dignified carriage of the man whose arrival seemed to be creating some stir ln the hotel. A re-ception clerk and a deputy manager had already hastened forward. The newcomer waved them back for a moment. Pareheaded, he had taken Margaret llildltrh's hands ln his nnd raised them to his lips. "I came as quickly as I could," he said. "There was the usual delny, of course, at Marseilles, and the trains on were terrible. So all has ended well." Oliver Hlldltch, standing by. re-mained speechless. It seemed for a moment as though his self-contr-were subjected to a severe strain. "I had the good fortune," he Inter-posed, In a low tone, "to be wonder-fully defended, Mr. I.edsam here ". He glanced around. Francis, with some Idea of whnt was coming, obeyed nn Itnnglnnry summons from the bead porter, touched Andrew Wllmore upon the shoulder, and hastened without backward glance through the swing doors. Wllmore turned up bis coat collar and looked doubtfully up at the rain. "I say, old chap," he protested, "you don't really mean to walk?" Francis thrust his hand through his friend's arm and wheeled him round into Pavls street. "I don't care what the mischief we' cio, Andrew," he conilded, "hut couldn't you see what was going to happen?
