CVKRAL minutes passed, lu which tbey took stock of the VvjJj? situation and inude rapid strides in learning tlie art of ticking to wet and slippery ice. The little man was tlie first to ie:ik. Gee!" Le said and a minute later: "If you can dig ia for a moitent and tlacli i'u the rope I can turn over Try it. Smoke made tlie effort, then rested on tbe rope again. 1 can do it." he Kaid. "Teil me when you're ready, and be quick. "About three feet down is holding for my heels," Carson said. "It won't take a moment. Are you ready?" -Go on'" It wa.s hard work to slide down n yard, turn over and sit up. Hut it was even harder for Smoke to remain flat tened and maintain a position that from instai t to instant made a greater call upon bis muscles. As it w.-is. he could feel the almost perceptible begin ning of the slip when the rope tight ened, and he looked rp into his com panion's face. Smoke noted the yellow pallor of sun tan, forsaken by the Mood, and wondered what his own complexion, was like. But when he saw Carson, with shaking fingers, fumble for his sheath knife he decid ed tbe end had come. The man was in a funk and was troing to cut the rope. "Don't m-miud m-m-me." the little man chattered. "I ain't scared. It's only my nerves, gosh dang them. I'll b-b-be all rigLt in a minute." And Smoke watched him. doubled over, hM shoulders ltweeu his knees, shivering and awkward, holding a slight tension on the rope with one hand, while with the ether he hacked j and gouged holes for his heels iu the ice. "Carson." he breathed up to him. "you're some bear, some bear." j The answering grin was ghastly and' pathetic "I never could stand height," j Carson confessed. "It always did get) me. Do you mind If I stop a minute j and clear my head? Then I'll make those heel holes deeper so I can heave you up." Smoke's heart warmed. "Look here, Carson; the thing for you to do is to cut the rope. You can never get me up, and there's no use both of us be ing lost. You can make it out with your knife." "You shut up" was the hurt retort "Wlio's running this?" And Smoke could not help but see that anger was a good restorative for the other's nerves. As for himself, it was the more nerve racking strain, lying plastered against the ice with iiothing to do but strive to stick on. A groan and a quick cry of "Hold onf" warned him. With face pressed against the ice he made a supreme sticking effort, felt the roje slacken and knew Carson was slipping toward him. lie did i.ot dare look up until he felt the rope tighten and knew the other had again come to rest. "Gee, that was a near go'" Carson chattered. "I came down over a yard. Now, you wait. I've got to dig new holds." Holding the few pounds of strai necessary for Smoke with his left hand, the little man jabbed ami cuojh pM at the ice with his right. Ten minutes of this passed. "Now, I'll tell you what I've done." Carson called down. "I've made heel holds and hand holds for you along sile of me. I'm going to heave the rope in slow and easy, and you just come along sticking and not too fast. I ll tell you what, first of all. I'll take you on the rope, and you worry out of that pack. Get me?" Smoke nodded, and with infinite care unbuckled his pack straps. With a wriggle of tbe shoulders he dislodged the pack, and Carson saw it slide over the bulge and out of sight. "Now, I'm going to ditch mine," be called down. "You just take It easy and wait." Five minutes later the upward strug gle began. Smoke, aTter dryins his hands on the insides of his arm sleeves, clawed Into the climb bellied and ciung and stuck and plastered sus tained and helped by the pull cf the roe- Alone, he could not hare ad vaneed. A third of the way up, where the pitch was steeper and the ice less eroded, he felt the strain on the rope decreasing, lie moved slower and slower. Here was no place to stop and remain. His most desperate effort could not prevent the stop, and he could feel the down slip beginning. "I'm going," he called up. "So am I," was the reply, gritted through Carson's teeth. "Then cast loose." Smoke felt the rope tauten in a fu tile effort; then the pace quickened, and fce went past his previous lodgment and OTer the bulge tbe last glimpse he canght of Carson was turned ever, J wiihjnadly moving bauds and feet the Wheeler Syndicate. striving to overcome the downward draw. To Smoke's surprise, as he went over the bulge, there was no sheer fall. The roje restrained him as he slid down a steeper pitch, which quickly eased un til he came to a halt in another niche on the verge of another bulge. Carson was now out of sight, ensconced In the place previously occupied by Smoke. "Gee he could hear Carson shiver. 'Goer An Interval of quiet followed, and then Smoke conld feel the rope agi tated. "What are yon doing? he called op. "Making more hand and foot boWs," came the trembling answer. "You just wait I'M have you np here In a Jiffy Don't mind the way I talk. I'm Just excited." "You're holding me tty main strength." Smoke argued. "Soon or late, with the Ice melting, you'll sl'.p down after me. The thing for yoa to do is to cut loose. Hear me! There's no use both of us going. Get that? You're the biggest little man in crea tion, but you've done your best. You cut loose!" "You shut up! I'm going to make holes this time deep enough to haul up a span of horses." Several silent minutes passed. Smoke ?ou!d hear the metallic trike and hack of the knife, and occasionally driblets of lie slid over tlie bulge and came down to him. Thirsty, clinging on hand and foot, he caught the frag ments in bis mouth and melted them to water, which he swallowed. He beard a grasp that slid Into a groan of despair and felt a slackening of the rope that made him claw. Im mediately the rope tightened again. Straining his 'eyes In an upward look along the steep slope, he stared a mo ment, then saw the knife, point first, slide over the verge of the bulge and down upon him. He tucked his cheek to it, shrank from the pang of cut fiesli. tucked more tightly and felt the knife come to rest. "I'm a slob'" came tbe wail down the crevasse. "Cheer up, I've got It! Smoke an swered. "Stay! Wait! I've got a lot of string in my pocket. I'll drop it down to you. and you send the knife up." Smoke made no reply. He was bat tling with a sudden rush of thought. "Hey, you! Here comes tbe string. Tell me when you've got it." A small pocketkuife weighted on the string slid down the ice. Smoke got It. opened the larger blade by a quick effort of his teeth and one hand and made sure that the blade was sharp. Then he tied the sheath knife to the end of the string. "Haul away!" he called. With strained eyes he saw tbe up ward progress of the knife. But he saw more a Iit?e man. afraid and in domitable, who shivered and chattered, whose head swam with giddiness and who mastered his qualms and distress es and p!aye? a hero's part. Here was a proper nieat cater, eager with friend liness, generous to destruction, with a grit that shaking fear could not shake Then. too. he considered the situa tion cold bloodedly. There was no chance for two. Steadily they were sliding into the heart of the glacier, and it was bis greater weight that was dragging the little man down. The little man could stick like a fly. Alone, he could save himself. T.ully for us!" came the voice from above, down and across the bridge of Ice. Now we'll get out of here In two shakes." - The awful struggle for good cheer and hope In Carson's Toice decided Smoke. "Listen to me," he said steadily, vainly striving tt shake the vision of Joy Gastell's face from his brain. "I sent that knife up for you to get out with. Get that? I'm going to chop loose with the jackknife. It's one or both of us. Get that?" "Wait! For God's sake, wait!" Car son screamed down. "You can't do that! Give me a chance to jtet you out. Be ca 1 in. old horse. We'll make the tarn. You'll see, I'm going to dig holes that'll lift a bouse and barn." Smoke made no reply. Slowly and gently, fascinated by tbe sight, he cut with the knife until one of the thrw strands popped and parted. "What are you doing? Carson cried desperately. "If you cut I'll never forgive you never. I tell you it's two or nothing. We're going to get out Wait! For God's sake!" And Smoke, staring at the parted strand, five Inches before his eyes, knew fear iu all its weakness. He did not want to die. He recoiled from the shimmering abyss beneath him. and his panic brain urged all the pre posterous optimism of delay. It was fear that prompted him to compro mise. "All rieht." he called up. "I'll wait D your best But I tell you. Carson, if e both start slipping again I'm go ing to cut" "rinh! Forget it When we start, old horse, we start up. I'm a porous plaster. I eomld stick here if it was twice as steep. I'm getting a sizable hole for one heel already. Now. you hnn. and let me work." A gasp and a groan and an abrupt slackening of the rope warned him. He began to slip. 'I he movement was very slow. The rope tightened loyal ly, but ht continued to slip. Carson could not hold him and was slipping with him. The digging toe of his far ther extended foot encountered vacan cy, ami he knew that it wa.s over the straightaway fall. And he knew, too, that in another moment his falling body would jerk Carson's after it Blindly, desperately, all the vitality and life love of him beaten down in a flashing instant by a shuddering per ception of right and wrong, he brought the knife edge across the rope, saw the strands part, felt himself slide more rapidly and then fall. What happened then he did not know. He was net unconscious, but it happened too quickly, and it was unex pected. Instead of falling to his death his feet almost immediately struck in water, and he sat violently down in water that splashed coolingly on his face. His first impression was that the crevasse was shallower than he had Imagined and that he had safely fetch ed ttottcm. But of this he was quick ly disabused. The opp6site wall was a dozen feet away. He lay in a basin formed in an outjut of the ice wall by melting water tUat dribbled and trick led over the bulge above and fell sheer down a distance of a dozen feet This had hollowed out the basin. Where he sat the water was two feet deep, and it was flush with the rim. He pvered over the rim and looked down the narrow chasm hundreds of feet to the torrent that foamed along the bottom. "Oh. why did you?" he heard a wail from above. "Listen!" he called up. "I'm perfect ly safe, sitting In a pool of water up to my neck. And here's both our packs. I'm going to sit on them. There's room for half a dozen here. If you slip stick close and you'll land In the meantime you Like up and get out Go to the cabin. Sornebody9 there. 1 saw the smoke. Get a rope or anything that will make rope, and come back and iish for me." "Honest?" came Carson's incredu lous voice. "Cross my heart and hope to die. Now, get a hustle on or I'll catch my death of cold." Smoke kept himself warm by kick ing a chauuel through the rim with the heel of his shoe. By the time he had drained off the last of the water a call from Carson announced that be had reached the top. After that Smoke occupied himself with drying his clothes. The late aft ernoon sun beat warmly iu upon him, and he wrung out his garments and spread them about him. Two hours hiter, erched naked on tbe two packs he beard a voice above that he could not fail to identity. "Oh, -Smoke! Smoke." "Hello. Joy Gastell."' Le trailed back. "Where'd you drop froraV" "Are you hun?" "Not even any skin off." "Father s paying the rope down now. Do you see it?" "Yes. and I've got it." he answered. "Now, wait a couple of minutes, please." "What's the matter?" came her anx ious query after several minutes. "Oh. I know you're hurt." "No. I'm not I'm dressing." "Dressing?" "Yes. I've been in swimming. Now: Ready? Hoist away!" He sent up the two packs on the first trip, was subsequently rebuked by Joy Gastell and on tbe second trip came up himself. ' Joy Gastell looked at him with glow ing eyes whi'.e her father and Carson were busy coiling the rope. "How could you cut loose in that splendid way?" she cried. "It was it was glo rious, that's alL" Smoke waved the compliment away with a deprecatory hand. "I know all about it," she persisted "Carson tcld me. You sacrificed your self to save me." "Nothing of the sort." Smoke lied. "I could see that swimming pool right under me all the time." (To Be Continued.) PIANO AT A BARGAIN.

V r i ri' v l Mrs. George Ballance of Lincoln i3 making a .short visit to her parents in Plattsmouth. Mr. Gaston, father-in-law of Hon. Jno R. Clark, had a severe; stroke of paralysis on Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin of Kansas are making their relatives and friends in Cass county a visit. Mrs. Baldwin is a daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Wiley of Three Groves. We are sorry to be obliged to chronicle the departure of Mrs. French, daughter of Chaplain Wright,' to the barracks at Omaha, where she will reside this winter. She will be very much missed from Plattsmouth society. Captain Bennett presents the Her ald with the magnificent California pear he brought home; also, a fine bunch of the original "Mission grape," famous in California. The captain evidently made good use of his time in California. The Hon. J. M. Beardsley, our Weeping Water friend, called on us Saturday. Joe has one peculiarity, he says he would like to skate on the Missouri river if it was frozen solid to the bottom and he knew the bottom was thoroughly braved up with white ash piles. Never mind, Joe, you'll skate to Lincoln soon on as treacher ous a stream as Old Muddy. Look out for air holes. Our efficient postmaster, Captain Marshall, met with a severe accident Friday morning. He made a misstep as he was going down stairs and fell heavily against the brick wall, injur ing his shoulder badly. Fortunately no bones were broken and we hope he will soon recover and be able to attend to business with his accustomed urbanity. Our town is looking up, business improving, houses scarce and few to rent. The B. & M. R. R. is doing a heavy business, averaging about 100 cars per day each way. Last Friday the transfer crossed 137 loaded cars going east. The new R. R. shops are progressing rapidly, the contractor is working all the men he can put upon the walls. The news shops will make a fine addition to our city. The main building or machine shop proper i 10 feet long by 60 wide. The black smith shop 40xG0. The round house to contain sixty stalls, the old car penter shops are to be used this win ter and be replaced by new ones in the spring. The depot is to be moved to the foot of Main street, where it should have been put in the first place. The B. & M. have the best water supply in the state; they have a fall of some thirty feet from the spring to the water tank. They in tend putting a reservoir on the top of the hill south of the shops, one hundred feet above, which will be in valuable in case of fire. Adding the O'Neil spring would give the city the best water works in the city. Elam Parmele lost a wagon last week,. and John Shannon some double trees and things. Tuesday the wagon was brought baclc in front of Donel ly's blacksmith shop with com pliments of the borrower, we suppose Wish someone would bring our old bench back soon. Its getting summer and we want it. Charles P. Olson, bridge carpenter in the employment of the B. & M. R. R., under Road Master Osborne while working on a bridge near Ash land last Saturday, slipped and fell a distance of twenty feet upon the ice below, fracturing the left wrist, dis locating the right one, cutting the upper lip open to the bone, and frac turing the skull over the left eye and contusing the face in a frightful man ner. He is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. Fred M. Dorrington of our city, the" pioneer stage man, west of the Missouri river, has had a contract of blank bids and bonds for conveying the U.U S. mails, done at this office. Mr. D. has pioneered our western rail roads since 1856. His knowledge of the mail business and the country through which they are to run, made him a very efficient officers, of both the government and the company to which he belongs. Success to you, Mr. D., and the old Pioneer S. W. Stages. The Plattsmouth literary appeared in force Friday evening. Hon. Joseph A. Connor led one side and Hon. W. L. Wells the other, and the question was that old one, whether Napoleon ought to have been an angel or not. That wasn't just the way they put it, but then it meant the same. Brother Frye was the hero of the evening, and "Gad" the slaughterman of the Lin coln Journal who was present was so tickled that he proposed to get up a petition to congress to have the whole society transferred to Washington to take the place of the senate next ses sion. He thinks they are better 'argufyers.' The question next week is, Resolved, that a fellow generally walks straight because he is afraid of gettink hurt, and not because he likes it. The leaders are Mr. Thos. Wiles and Mr. Wayraan, and the lyceum goers may expect to hear a good de bate. i Editor Herald: Here are a few notes from the southern part of the county: uur public escnoois navt been n full operation all winter. Despite ti severe and inclement weather the at tendance has been gool. The debating club of lyceum of Factoryville is at the present time in a very flourishing state; while the community at large takes much in terest in this institution, the more prominent actors display more than common talent and ability in spo3ch and judgment. Some of those who know, say thai the Weeping Water Valley Old Bathelors' society has more members enrolled than any like institution in the state, singular as this may p pear, a fact it is, that marriageable young ladies, including young widow .s can have their choice out of nearly a hundred. How is that for high? With the approach of spring our farmers are making preparations for putting in crops. It is thought, how ever, the area for small grain will be a small one, as those myriads of un- hatched grasshoppers are causin much anxiety and fear among our soil tillers. Well, time will show how large the grasshopper crop will be. Great flocks of prairie chickens are inhabiting the cornfields along the banks of the Weeping Water, but it i feared that a great part of the coming young brood will be destroyed by the prairie fires in the spring. Lovers of wild and romantic music can have a rich treat by listening to the free and unsolicited nightly con certs of a large family of coyotes which infest our neighborhood. Noth ing like it. Occassionally more, Chas. E. Chassot. P. S. The Black Hills fever has come out in the person of our in dustrious blacksmith, Henry K. We hear that Dr. Wallace is attending tlie case. C. E. C. Dr Wm. Wniersteen, city treas urer, left last Monday for Phila delphia. Judge Despain will attend it the collection of taxes in his absence. Mr. Schlegel, our accommodating express man, had another of his run aways on Tuesday, demolishing hi wagon pretty effectually, as usual. We understand a brass band of ten persons has been organized in this city and that the instruments are here. A subscription has been raised to pay for the instruments. Mike McGuire has bought the old Patterson place, and will soon have a handsome residence put up there, if cottonwood lumber don't give out or the mill bust up. Hurrah for Mike! George Cutler, esq., is now acting as assistant engineer of the B. R. R., with Mr. Calvert, and it just suits George. Eddy Kirkpatrick and wife are in town. They came up to see Dr. John Black, Mrs. K.'s father, and we are happy to learn that the doctor is much better, and will probably soon be able to attend to business again. Our friend, George Smith, has the pleasure of welcoming his father ani mother. Elder Ross and wife, during the holidays. Joe Connor is just rushing thing.?, got a big corn crib four blocks long out on the avenue, and six or seven more up along the road, and buying at big prices all the time. He has just moved his office to Stadelmann's building and is as happy as a boy with his first pair of breeches with a pocket in 'em. Mr. Thaddeus Adams gives us some grasshopper items. He says he turn ed up the ground in many places where the eggs arc very thick and he thinks most of them will hatch. He did not find many egg-eating para sites. Same result in three fields, and Mr. A. has gloomy forebodings about the hopper crcp in the spring. Mr. Sol Beardsley, however, comes to a different conclusion. He has exam ined a good many eggs, too, and finds many already hatched out or have had life and then died. In many shells the form of the grasshopper can be distinctly seen. Others he found ad dled, and altogether he doesnt feel so much afraid of the grasshoppers as he used to. SOUTH BEND. Mrs. Willard Dill and Labies visited over Sunday at the W. S. Kiltreil home. J. D. Kittrell left last Monday even ing for Wyoming, where he intend to oversee a bridge gang out there Mrs. Caulder is sick at her home with pneumonia.

By this we are reminds that this world it not our home, but that we are swift passengers from time to eternity.' The summons came for Mrs. Carrie Lansing Green at 3:15 o'clock Saturday afternoon, Feb ruary 6, 1913. She peacefully answer ed the call, and her spirit went to try the realities of an unseen country to us. Her maiden name was Carrie Landing, and she was born in Yutan Nebraska, April 18, 1S70, and died at her home February . 1015, at the ge of 35c years, i) months and 2i) days. The funeral services were conduct ed by Francis K. Allen of Ashland Nebraska, and the R.

Lans ing of South Bend, and two sisters Lucy Graham of Meiia, Nebraska, an. Jennie Aibcthnot of Ic? fase, Cali fornia. She was married to LImer Green January 1, 1002. She was a faithful member ar.d church worker, and was loved by all who knew her. But she has gone from our midst and has left a vacant chair in the home, and sad and lonely hearts to grieve her love to know. Let us turn our eyes from the dark picture rnd look to a kind Saviour, who stands with outstretched arms ready to comfort the sad hearts and let the sunlight in on the darkend soul that mourns from such sorrow.
