SOHPY ONKAVONIA By Anthony Hope Author Of "The Prisoner Of Zenda" ed In too rash 'a confidence that they were first on the ground. But the greater surprise befell those who bad now to defend the barges and the guns. When the man who had found the dead sentry ran hack and told his tale, all of them, from Stafnite down- ward, conceived that the attack must corae from Stenovi'es. None thought of Sophy and her Yolsenians. There they were packed in the barn, separated from their horses and with their car- bines laid aside. The carbines were easily caught up. the horses not so easily reached, supposing an active. skillful enemy at hand outside. For themselves their position was good to stand a siege. But Stafnlts could not afford that. His mind flew where Sophv's had. Throughout and on both slLs the guns were the factor which dominated the of the flfhL It was no use for Stofnltz to snuf in the barn while the enemy j couldB't net came crawling back to roe.

"We felt in the deuce of a Rastatz related, "for we didn't know how many they were, and we couldn't see one of them. The colonel, walked out of the bam cool as a cucumber and looked and listened. He called to me to go with him, and so I did, keeping as much behind his back as possible. Nothing: was to be seen, nothing to heard. He pointed to the rising ground opposite, 'That must hide them.' he said. Back he went and called th'e first half company.

'In the ditch, hi 'I wish -you'd spoken a bit "says the colonel, laughing again." f While this was passing on Stafnitz's side Sophy and her party were working quietly and cautiously down the course of the ditch. Under the shelter of its bank they vhad been able to hold a brief and hurried consultation. What they feared was that Stafnite would make a dash for the barges.

I had to stand in the doorway and regulate the distance between man and man. I hadn't been there two seconds before a dozen heads came over the hill dozen rifles cracked. Luckily the colonel was just round the corner. Down' went the heads again, but they'd bagged two of our fellows. I shouted to more to out and at the same time ordered the sergeant major to send a file forward to answer the fire. Up came the again, and they bagged three more. Our fellows blazed away In reply, but they'd dropped too quickly. I don't ttiink we got one. "Well; we didn't mind so much about keeping our exact distances after that and 1 wouldn't swear that the whole us faced the fire. It was devil- ish disconcerting, you know, but In a few minutes thirty or five and thirty of us got round the side of the barn some- how and for the moment out of barm's way. We heard the fire going on still In front DQt only a desultory way. They weren't trying to rush us, and I don't think we had aay Idea of rushing them. For all we knew they might he 200 or they might be a dozen. At any rate, with the advantage of position they were enough to bottle our men up In the barn for the moment at all i events." This account makes what had" hap-, pened pretty plain. Half of Sophy's force had been left to hold the enemy or as many of them as possible in the barn. They had dismounted and, well covered by the hill, could make good practice without imnch danger to them- selves. was in command of this section of the little troop. Sophy, Dunstanbury and Peter Vassip, also on, foot (the-horses' hoofs would have be- trayed were stealing round, tent on getting between the barges and any men whom Stafnitz tried to place in position for their defense. Alter leaving men for the containing party and three to look after the horses thii detachment was no more than a' dozen, strong. But they had started before Stafnitz's men had got out of the barn and despite the smaller distance the j latter had to traverse could make a j good race of it for the barges. They I had kept together, too, while enemy straggled round to the rear of j the barn In stogie file. And they had one great perhaps decisive, advantage, of whose existence Peter Vassip, their j guide, was well aware. j Forty yards beyond the farm a small. down to the Krath. On the j side farm it had a high over- j banging, bank, tbc other side being j nearly level with the adjoining mead- j ow. Thus it formed a natural trench. j and led straight down to where the j first of the barges lay. It would have i been open to an enfilade from the river, j but Stafnitz had only one sentry on j each barge, and these men were occu- pied in staring at their advancing com- panions and calling out to know what i was the- matter. As for the j they had wisely declared deeming the matter no business theirs- Shots were not within the j terms of a contract for transport.: Staf- nitz, not dretming of an attack, had-; not reconnoitered his ground. But Lu- kovitch knew every inch of it (had not j might drop half his men, but the sur- vivors 'when once on the barges were drawn up to'the edge of the still be numerous as themselves and would command the course of the ditch, which was at pres- ent their great resource and protection. But if they could get on board before the enemy they believed they could hold their own. The decks were cov- ered with impedimenta of one sort or another, which wdnld afford er, while any party which tried to board must expose itself to fire to a serious and probably fatal extent So they worked down the ditch, ex- cept two them. little as they could spue even two, It was Judged well to leave these.

The court when sit- ting here hitherto has not very busy and this occasion was no excep- tion, most of beiotf settled out of court, while an. appeal 'which looked like taking up all day, was thrown out on technicality. This was a Granum gambling case, Chas. A. Fuller appealing against a con- viction at the instance of John S. Piper given in Granum by Inspector Camies Of the K.N.W.H.P. Colin Macleod instructed b'y J. lespie, ibarrister of Granum, appeared for the appellant, and W. If. Camp- bell, crown prosecutor, for the se- spondent. The crown had one or two objections to the appeal on 'technical grounds, the first of which was that Claresholm was not the nearest place to Granum where a court sat but (that MacLeod was nearer. There was some argument on this and township plans were ready for production when the crown brought forward their sec- ond objection and that was that in the bail bond, made out when the action was appealed the word "per- sonaljy" had been omitted where in the bail bond the appellant is bound to "personally appear." !Mr. Mac- leod took the stand that he had sub- stantially complied with the b'ond, and had personally but the crown quoted cases to show that they were entitled to ,take advantage of every technicality to protect the jus-' tice of fbhc peace's decision jand Judge Carpenter stated that he would have to follow the rulings of the superior courts and he therefore refused entry of the appeal. It is understood that appellant is to take proceedings by way of Habeas Corpus'to" hrng the appeal before tKe superior courts.

Russell vs. Rosenberg turned out to be a suit for damage and the de- fendant, who appeared in person and was consequently inclined to toe dumb before the court, was delighted to hear the judge throw the case out because a suit for damages could: not b'e brought in the small debt court. A large debt case which was down for trial had not been finished at the time of this despatch: W, H. Gushing, minister of public works, will be here tomorrow to choose a site for the court house.
