with singular sensations that both tlie captain and hor usually self re liant HinUr were annoyed and embar rassed by the topic and strove to change it but Fosters propensity for mimicry I and his ability to imitate Clancys combined brogue and sniffle proved too much for their Kate was in a royally bad temper by tlie time the youngHters left the and when Nollio would have made Homo laughing

captain could not bo ready for sev eral at least now ho is and that ends Never mind what changed his was unsafe trifle with Nellie as Ifciyncr might have She saw that something had oc curred to make the captain eager to start ut once and then there was that imme diate wnriiiig for tlie secret talk up in Kates the evi dent mental disturbance of both fem inities on their respective reappearances mid the sudden announcement to While here could be no time to formal parting tliero were still sonic wo or three ladies in tlie garrison whom Nlir longed to see Injure saying adieu und then there was

heard crying appa rently in the Kayner was with the aud Miss Travers started for tliu calling that she would go mid see what it Shu was down iu the hall before liayners impera tive and repealed calls

away into the shad ows across the dim level of the the sisters faced There was a fire in the joungers eve that Eayner would have escaped if it is to get Clancy away from the possibility of revealing what he knows that you have planned this sud den and I know said Miss You need not She seised a wrap from the hat rack and stepped to the Bay ner tjirew herself after where are you gofeig What will

And we ought to be about for it wont be long before his discharge and once away we should be in the There seems so little hope ma Even the colonel has called him up and questioned very but always when the old sergeant was It is when drunk that Clancys conscience pricks him to tell what he either knows or sus A quick footstep was heard on the the hall door and without knock or bursting impetu ously iu upon there suddenly ap peared Miss her eves dilated with excitement At sight of the group she stopped and colored to the very roots of her shining How glad I am to see Nellie exclaimed as all rose to reet An half dis aaught reply was her only She lad extended both hands to the elder lady but almost at finding herself in the presence of the very man she most wanted to she stood with downcast had

sister has some cannot fathom She wants them away from and Clancys discharge came He must see him she indicating Hayne by a nod of her pretty They say Clancy has run off and got away from liis He doesnt want to be They cannot find him now but perhaps Hayne try must Indeed we and quick about said the Kow is our I verily Let us get the doctor first then little Kate will best know where to look

captain was pacing the room with nervous stride in mingled relief and All looked up expectant as the soldier He had the air of a man who knew he bore tidings of vivid and mysterious but he cmbed the

Many of the soldiers strolled slowly np the in hopes of hearing all about the and what it from straggling members of the All knew it meant something more than a mere break on the part of Clancy all felt that it had some connection with the long continued mystery that hung about the name of it was being noised abroad that Clancy had and be tween two suns had fled for parts un Sh3 could be overhauled by tel egraph if she had left on either of the night freights or gone down towards Denver by the early morning passenger train it would be easy enough to cap ture her if she were said the garrison but what did it mean that Clancy was pursued by officers of the post and brought back under charge of officers of the lavr He had had trouble poor fellow The officer of the guard looked won

you spoke a few kind words in a low and gave the old soldier his hand at Then the guard closed the and father and daughter were left As the groups around the guard house began to break up and move and tho reentering the drove over to headquar a rollicking Irishman called to the sergeant of the guard Does he know the ould womans sargent youd better tell Twill cheer But a few moments the news was

roads THE HAWK EYE has endeavored to point out some of the advantaged of good This week we desire to look at the ques tion negatively and consider the disad vantages of poor roads and point out how costly they are to the localities in which they are This wo can best do by quoting from an address by Henry of delivered be fore state board of health at its re cent annual meeting in In an address delivered before the state board at its recent annual meeting in says The Phila delphia Henry of made a powerful argu ment upon the advantages which both town and country derive from good suburban roads The rise in values of land ia those portions of Montgomery and Delaware counties lying near to the city of Phila soul is to a large extent due to the construction of good which hiive greatly enlarged the territory suitable for suburban Minions of dollars have thus been added to the of those In other of this state there are farms from eight to ten miles from any town or whose value is at a not be cause of any lack of good build ing or any other thing which makes a farm inherently but simply be cause of the inaccessibility through the poor If located near a good road those farms would at once become more One might as well live on an island as on a farm that is practically cut off from railroad and postoffice by bad roads during at least four months in the It is sometimes argued that the enor mous expansion of our railway system has led to a corresponding neglect of our ordinary roads that we are no longer dependent on wagons and horses for the transportation of freight and passengers from city to This assertion fur nishes no good reason for neglect of for it is an indisputable fact that 09 per of the freight that is trans ported by rail or water has to be hauled over a road or street to the railroad sta and the same is true of the freight after it reaches its All onr trade organizations in natural products must find their way over a highway before they can reach market and obtain their value and therefore good roads at all seasons of the year are a necessity for the greater prosperity of town and And I see no reason why the common road system should not in some degree at least re ceive the same kind of attention and concern which the development and im provement of the railway and steamship systems have The saving and cost of transportation which a good road makes over a poor one is much greater than most people and the cost often determines the question of profit or during the past marked ment in the value of adjacent already Thesame is tra Bay

the census of 1880 an attempt was made to get a fair estimate of the aver age cost of hauling grain from the farm to the railroad The estimates returned varied from 30 cents to for hauling 100 bushels one Bnt it appeared that the average cost of hauling100 bushels one mile was 60 cents at In most of the western wheat regions it was stated that if wheat has to be hauled more than eighteen or twenty miles to reach a railroad or water this land in ordinary eats up the profits of Accord ing to the estimates it costs the ordinary farmer more to carry each bushel of wheat a mile than it does the ordinary railroad to carry a This matter of hauling at a heavy ex pense has incited a great deal of atten tion in the western and some in teresting estimates have made by experts in a state whose topog raphy is generally and seem to be favorable to good These experts calculated that for twothirds of the year not more than onehalf can be hauled of what in the best season is considered a good
