"The ' Alpaca Oil company, sir, Is
the biggest thing In Texas today," said
"Colonel" Ware, looking up at Ormsby I
from his plate of asparagus. "And
what Is more, our friends believe In
us and nre doing all they ran to help
us most of them."
There was no mistaking thu chal
lenge In the colonel's words. Ormsby
looked across the table at Mildred,
lie was conscious that tho colonel was
covertly watching hi in nil through the
remainder of tho meal.
Ormsby was assistant editor of Thu
li'lnuncinl Observer, a staid, accurate,
olil-fashtoncd tlnauclal paper, with
fifty years of undiminished reputation
Hut other Influences than money
may be at work In a man's mind.
Mildred Ware and Ormsby were
acknowledged lovers. And "Colonel"
Waro was a speculator a spectacular
one. lie had won and lost half a
doen fortunes. Just now his whole
fortune was placed in Alpaca oil.
Tho "Observer" had delayed offer
ing Its opinion upon this stock,
Orrn&by knew that Mildred under
stood the situation. They hud loved
each other for two whole years.
Ormsby kissed her good-by and
went down to his olllce with a heavy
heart. That editorial must be written
"There's a man waiting to see you,
sir," said the ofllco floy us he entered.
".Show him In," snld Ormsby, und a
tnoiiunt later he was looking Into tho
face of his visitor. The man was of
A typo thut Ormsby knew well and
"The 'Observer' hasn't touched on
Alpaca oil yet, I notice," he said.
"It's u swindle, Isn't it?"
"If It were a swindle the 'Observer'
would say so."
"What would you say, young man, If
I was to prove that for nothing?" he
nuked. "Old Ware did mo. a bad turn
once and I'd be glad enough to get
even with him."
"I tdiould say that your facts were
probably malicious and Inaccurate,"
"Then look ut that," said the man,
handing Ormsby a photograph.
"Taken three days ago by me, ut the
risk of my lire. They've put armed
guards round the oil hole since the
ilow dwindled down."
Tho most cursory survey of the
papers mid letters Hung down on the
table showed Ormsby that his suspi
cions weiu more than Justified.
Ten minutes later he had begun the
most Impassioned article that he had
ever written, lie denounced Alpaca
oil as a fraud, he showed up Colonel
Ware as an unmltlgaled scoumlnl
He finished the editorial, sent a
pipof by the boy to .Muntoii, Instruct
ing his subordinate to have the article
set as soon us Manton's formal ac
knowledgment emtio over the wire,
and hastened home. He full asleep
after hours of agonized wakefulness.
When he awoke he sat up In bed,
wondering why his head ached and all
his life seemed hopeless. Then he be
gan to r'lnenibur. The news must
hnve beciine general property long
ago. Then, pulling on his dressing
gown, be telephoned his olllce.
Mil'! a minute, please." said the
mini at the other end. "Here's Mr.
Mnnton. He wants to talk to you."
A moment later the owner's voice
came ovei; the wires.
"Hello, Ormsby," he said. ".Say,
what In thunder did you mean by that
piece about Alpaca oil? 1 caught It
Just as 1 was going to bed and stopped
It Just In time. Why, that's the big
gest proposition that's listed today.
It'll touch 100 before the week Is out!"
" "You must be mistaken," snld Ormsby.
"Come to my house," said Manton
curtly, and hung up the receiver.
Oims.by arrived fuming with indignation.-
He was shown Into Manton's
studj to llud not only Manton but
Colonel Waru and .Mildred. The col

quired Munton stlllly.
"You remember George shabby

Mnnton, It may uot have been quite
straight, but I meant to let you fel

Ormbby to give us a fair write-up.
When he wouldn't I sent Georgo to
him with some fake papers and pho
tographs In hopes he'd write Just such
an article as be did. If that had got

been down to -10 and I'd sold half my
holdings to buy It In then. Next week,

absolutely sound, It would havo

And you can thniik your stars, Man

"Nono hotter In Texas, sir," said
tho colonel shortly. "And since you'vo

The telephone was Jingling discord
nntly and Clenve was conscious of an
acute presentiment of disaster as he
took down the receiver.
"You wife . . . accident . . ." he
heard n voice saying. "Thrown from
the buggy . . . bend In the roud . . .
unconscious and grave fenrs . . .
'come home nt once."
Clenvo hung the receiver up mid sat
staring moodily nt the pnpers upon
his desk. It seemed like fate, this ac
cident, for he had not expected to see
Mary again for months, If ever.
They had been married two yenrs,
and had no. child. If one had come
things might have been different -they
might not hnve quarreled so perpetu
ally. How she hud loved him before their
marriage, thought Cleave, as he sat nt
ills desk. Then sho had striven nt
first to make him happy I And he, too,
had tried hnrd to be good to her, for
Mury was very lovable and sweet. But
ut lust they had both given up In de
spair. Cleave would always remem
ber the words she had said to him that
night, three months before:
"I can forgive you, John, und love
you, but the memory of these two un
happy years must always be with me.
It can never bo quite thu same again."
And uftcr that everything had
seemed hopeless. Things had gone
from bnd to worse. And finally they
had decided that Mary should go back
to her mother, to spend the summer
with her. There was to be no scandal.
Mary had been on her way to the sta
tion when the accident happened.
Suddenly there swept over him a
fuller realization than had ever be
fore come to him of his selfishness.
If he could only have one chance
An hour's run and he was treading
the streets of the country village In
which ho lived. He saw his home; an
automobile was standing before the
door. He rushed In. The doctor and
a nurse, hastily summoned, were In
the hull. When the doctor hud finished
speaking, and the nurse hud sped up
the stairs, he turned to him.
"Your wife has had a very serious
accident, Mr. Cleave," ho said. "She
was thrown out of the buggy when thu
horse swerved, mid sustained a frac
ture of the skull. There is no Immedi
ate danger, I am happy to say. She
may recover consciousness at any
time. Hut we fear some brain In
Jury." Alt through Unit afternoon John
Cleave sat at his wife's bedside, star
lug Into the wide-open eyes that saw
nothing. She lay In a stupor.
It was uot until the third afternoon
that consciousness returned.
It was about three o'clock In the aft
ernoon when she stirred und spoke.
She smiled ut him, and the smile was
like that which she had worn upon
their wedding morning.
"Dm rest where am I?" she asked.
"At 1 nine," .said John, thrilling ut
the fi.lnl clasp of her lingers. "At
home. iii'.r to ro away again."
".She .poljo to you, you say?" in
quired the doctor of John that eve
ning. "She l.i.ew you and spoke and
"Absolute). .ailonul," answered John
Cleave, and Mined away. Ho went
Into his room i.ivl mi his knees thanked
God for the d .nee that was to be
his. Ills pra.Mir was answered.
"How long haw wo been married,
John':" Mary as!; d next day. "It
seems such a long time, somehow, and
yet 1 know that It an't really be an
entire car as that nilendar on the
wall seem.) to show."
John looked ut the calendar. It was
an old one of the preceding year.
"It Is June," snld Mary, "nud we
were uicnied In June, is It a whole
year, deatv.ri ?"
John dared not tell her that it was
"Dearest," 'she whispered, pre.-ently.
'Tut- your arms round-me und let me
tell you something. 'Do you know, all

"It Is you- who must forgive me,
dearest," said John,' humbly.
That night the doctor explained the
situation to him.
"Your wife," he said, "Is on tho high
load to recovery. Iler mind Is ns
sound as It has ever been. The brain
trouble which I anticipated amounts
simply to this: The whole of the past
year has slipped out of her memory.
Has Miu had any great trouble that
could account for this?"
"Yes," answered John, humbly, and
the doctor shot a keen glance at him.
"Then that Is the explanation," he
said. "Her ml ml was troubled; she
wishes to forget the episode; whatever
It was. It Is necessary for her to for
get It lu order that she ma. get well.
Are you prepared to let her go

the unaccustomed world of labor and
hardness. Kor these strong men, of
whom Kune .Mills community was
chiefly composed, were rough citizens,
aggressive lu their contempt of the

It wus a foreign atmosphere to Hope,
but an Interesting one. The contempt
sho Ingorcd, und the achievement ad

ior, was her one aversion.
"Fielding will drive you ubout and
look nfter you," her father ordered, j
"while I inn occupied. Ah your worn- '
nn's curiosity had to be satisfied by
this trip, you must now make the
best of It."
It was Thorpe, the "Roughneck,"
who attracted her most.
When he looked up at Hope unex
pectedly one day and Hashed her a
smile of warm friendliness, the girl
stared her astonishment.
When Fielding's cur refused to be
moved from Its stand In the roadway
It was Thorpe who respectfully and
obligingly came to the rescue.
"What," she asked her father later,
"do you know about Charles Thorpe?"
Her father regarded her keenly.
"Nothing," he replied, "to his nd
vnntuge. The les you know of him
The day after that Hope found n !
letter. It was lying on the ground In
thu favorite woodsy nook that she fro-
quented. And " thinking It to be one ,
she had dropped the preceding day.
Hope road its opening sentence.
"Dear Budsy," began the note in
tremulous lettering, "I miss you, son.
And every night I light the lamp and
sing the sung we used to sing togeth

Sudden tears' filled Hope's soft eyes.
"Budsy!" she whimpered, "Budsy!"
She was thinking of that other name
the man gave him, the name be nc
ceptcd In laughing bravado.
Hearing a violin one evening send
ing its melody out on the nir, Hope
learned I bat Charles Thorpe was the
musician and searched blm out the
following morning In bis factory, beg
ging tho loan of some music.
"It Is lonely here," sho told him,
"and I thought that If you had any
music I'd like to try It on the piano."
So Hope came upon his mother's song.
It was very sweet "The heart of my
song," the desolated mother bnd writ
ten, so Hope, in lier sympathetic rend
ing, found that tender chord. In her
little room of the crude hotel she
heard that night sounds of disturbance
In the long room below. Tables were
pushed back roughly, once a woman
screamed. Hope's father bad not yet
come to his adjoining room, so tho
girl crept fearfully down the stairs.
"Keep back," the hotelkeeper's wife
"You'll not want to see. It's the
Roughneck In a rage. Fielding tonight
Is going to got his. No on" can Inter
fere. When Thorpe Is like that he
goes wihj. Fielding deserves It. He
hasn't been honest with the men. So
Roughneck l out for them. But

from tho room.
Hope snw two men facing each
other, white and desperate. Then
Fielding cowered suddenly, slunk
buck. Thorpe following him mercilessly.
Sharply the girl called out. He did
not hear. Then. "Budsy," she cried,
"oh, Budsy 1"
Fiercely, angrily he whirled around,
but Hope was now In the next room
at tho piano. The song en mo softly,
vibrantly, seeming strangely out of
place. Charles Thorpe faltered, lis
tened, turned quietly and made his
way past the Ioiifo excited faces. Be
fore the piano he stood trembling;,
questioning dark eyes looking down
upon the girl. When her .song was
done Hope met his py.es.
"Budsy," she said gently, decisively,
"you nre going home."
"Yes," he answered, "ye--"
Tentatively his big hand went out
"If you will pioialse that I may see
you again when- "
"When" Hone graoly 'tueted
"you are as brave and as true as you
used to be."
From the room beyond came sounds

State Farm Bureau Notes
At a meeting held in Chicago a
week ago, attended by representatives
of the mid-west group of State Farm
Bureau Federations it was derided to
launch n campaign for tho planting
of more clover and less corn, at least
tho replacing of corn acreage with
it-'untc's sucn as ciover, niiuini, so .
beans, etc. in the interests of good
farm management and a reduced o-a-n
surplus in 1922. In a statement is
sued after the meeting it waa point
ed out that on November 1, 1921 there
waa approximately 600,000,000 bush
els .! corn on hand in this country
in excess of tho average disappear
ance of corn covering a period of
thirteen years, and that there was an
excess of 370,000,000 based en tho
disappearance of the previous twelve
months. Considering that excess corn
production has caused the price to
sink to a level below cost of produc
tion, and at the same time is exacting
an unnecessary drain upon tho fertil
ity of the soil the mid-west Farm
Bureau Federation officials went on
record as favoring a reduced acreage
of corn and the planting of crops th&t
will rebuild the soil. The idea will
also be pushed by the several earn
