hardest problem for the garrison to solve was the fact while Hayne kept several of his old associates at a he had openly offered his hand to This was something the Eiders could not account The intensity of his feeling at the time of court martial none could for get the vehemence of his denunciation of the captain was still fresh in the memory of those who heard Then there were all those years in which Ray ner had continued to crowd him to the wall and finally there was the almost tragic episode of Buttons midnight in which willingly or had been in Was it not odd that in the face of all these consider ations the first man to whom Hayne should have offered his hand was Capt Rayner Odd indeed But then only one or two were made acquainted with the full particulars of Clancys

wide it usu ally results in no part being kept in good while if it was narrowed the whole could be kept in first class condi tion at less and a well kept road of even twenty feet width is far prefera
