to be proud of both the paper and the
town. We did notknow what a gcod
place we lived in until the facts were

better than some. The cuts are all clear
and show up the town and surrounding
country very nicely. Editor Strother
has devoted a great deal of time and
money to the publication of this illus

satisfied look the last few days we im
agine he is as well pleased with his
work as all of his patrons are.

-j- Adventure of
the Missing Three
Quarter No. 11 of the Series
(Cfyrigkt. 1904. h A. Ctumm 9t)h ami CMim
(Ctyritht. 1905. h MtClmn. Mil if, tf C.)
E were fairly accustomed
to receive weird tele
grams at Baker street,
but I have a particular
recollection of one which
reached us on a gloomy
February morning, some
seven or eight years ago, and gave Mr.
Sherlock Holmes a puzzled quarter of
an hour. It was addressed to him and
ran thus:
Please await me. Terrible misfortune.
Right wine three-quarter missing, indis
pensable tomorrow. OVERTON.
"Strand postmark and dispatched
10:30, " said Holmes, reading it over
and over. "Mr. Overton was evidently
considerably excited when he sent It
and somewhat incoherent in conse
quence. Well, well, he will be here, I
dare say, by the time I have looked
through the Tlmesal ttteft e shall
know all about It Even the most insig
nificant problem would be welcome in
these stagnant days."
Things had Indeed been very slow
with us, and I had learned to dread
such periods-of Inaction, for I knew
by experience that my companion's
brain was so abnormally active that it
was dangerous to leave it without ma
terial upou which to work. For years
I had gradually weaned him from
that drug mania which bad threatened
once to check his remarkable career.
Now I knew that under ordinary con
ditions he no longer craved for this
artificial stimulus, but I was well
aware that the fiend was not dead,
but sleeping, and I have known that
the sleep was a light one and the wak
ing near when In periods of Idleness
I have seen the drawn look upon
Holmes' ascetic face and the brooding
of his deep set and inscrutable eyes.
Therefore 1 blessed this Mr. Overton,
whoever he might be, since he had
come with bis enigmatic message to
break that dangerous calm which
brought more peril to my friend than
all the storms of his tempestuous life.
As we had exjected, the telegram
was soon followed by its sender, and
the card of Mr. Cyril Overton, Trinity
college, Cambridge, nunouueed the ar
rival of an enormous young man, six
teen stoue of solid bouc and muscle,
who spanned the doorway with his
broad shoulders and looked from one
of us to the other with a comely face
which was haggard with anxiety.
"Mr. Sherlock Holmes?"
My companion bowed.
"I've been down to Scotland Yard,
Mr. Holmes. I saw Inspector Stanley
Hopkins. He advised me to come to
you. He said the case, so far as be
could see, was more in your line than
in that of the regular poliee."
"I'ray sit down and tell me what is
the matter."
"It's awful, Mr. Holmes. Simply
awful! I wonder my hair isn't gray.
Godfrey Staunton you've heard of
him, of course? He's simply the hinge
that the whole team turns on. I'd
rather spare two from the pack and
have Godfrey for my three-quarter
line. Whether it's passing or tackling
or dribbling there's no one to touch
him, and, then, he's gat the head and
can bald us all together. What am I
to do? That's what I ask you, Mr.
Holmes. There's Moorhouse, first re
serve, but he is trained as a half, and
he always edges right in on to the
scrum instead of keeping out on the
touch line. He's a fine place kick, it's
true, but then he has no judgment, and
be can't spriut for nuts. Why, Mor
ton or Johnson, the Oxford fliers,
could romp round him. Stevenson is
fast enough, but he couldn't drop from
the twenty-five Hue, and a three
quarter who can't either punt or drop
isn't worth a place for pace alone.
Xo, Mr. Holmes, we are done unless
you cau help me to find Godfrey
My frieud had listened with amused
surprise to this long speech, which
was poured forth with extraordinary
vigor and earnestness, every point be
ing driven borne by the slapping of a
brawny baud upon the speaker's knee.
When our visitor was silent Holmes
stretched out his hand and took down
letter "S" of his commonplace book.
For once he dug in vain into that mine
of varied information.
"There is Arthur H. Staunton, the
rising young forger," said he, "and
there was Henry Staunton, whom I
be!pad to bang, but Godfrey Staunton
is a new name to me."
It was our visitor's turn to look sur
prised. "Why. Mr. Holmes, I thought you
knew things." said he. "I suppose,
then, if you have never heard of God
frey Staunton, you don't know Cyril
Overton either?"
Holmes shook bis head good humor
"Great Scott r cried the athlete.
"Why, I was first reserve for Eng
land against Wales, and I've skippered
the varsity all this year. But that's
nothing! I didn't think there was a
soul In England who didn't know God
frey Staunton, the crack three-quarter,
Cambridge. Blackheath and five in
ternationals. Good Lord, Mr. Holmes.
where have ran Hred?" ,
Holmes laughed at the young glantV
naive astonishment.
"You live in a different world from
me, Mr. Overton a sweeter and health
ier one. My ramifications stretch out
into many sections of society, but never,
I am happy to say, into amateur sport,
which is the best and soundest thing !n
England. However, your unexpected
visit this morning shows me that even
In that world of fresh nit and fair play
mere may be woTfc"for me 'to do. So
Sow, my good sir, I beg you to sit down
and tell me, slowly and quietly, exactly
what it is that has occurred and how
you desire that I should help you.
Young Overton's face assumed the
pothered look of a man who la more
accustomed to using his muscles than
his wits, but by degrees, with many
repetitions and obscurities which I
may omit from his narrative, he laid
hlsstrange story before na.

of Uncle Sam
should be deeply interested in what he has said about soda
crackers, because they are the one food with which all of
them are familiar.
Uncle Sam has given out figures showing that soda
crackers are richer in nutriment and body-building elements,
properly proportioned, than any food made from flour.
This is saying much for common soda crackers, and
much more for UltMClc BlSCtllt, because they are
soda crackers of the best quality. They are baked better
more scientifically. They aie packed bettei more cleanly.
The damp, dust and odor proof package retains all tne good

baking, all the purity of the cleanest bakeries.
