A valuable mineral spring
has been discovered by W. H.
Ausley on his place in Graham.
It was noticed that it brought
health to the users of the water,
and upon being analyzed it was
ofund to be a water strong in
mineral properties and good
for stomach and blood troubles.
Physicians who have seen the
analysis and what it does,
recommend its use.

"Lord, I'm tired," grouped Rlekard,
stumbling into camp, wet to the skin.
"Don't you say letters to ine, Mac.

The day, confused and Jumbled,

In bed, the day with Its Irritations
fell away. He could see now the stop
ahead that had been takeo; the last
trestle was done; the rock-pouring
well on; he cdlled that going some I
He felt pleasantly languid, but not yet
sleepy. His thought wandered over the
resting camp. And then Innes Hardin
came to him.
Not herself, but as a soft little
thought which came creeping around
the corner of his dreams. She hnd
been there, of course, all day, tucked
away In his mind, as though In his
"home waiting for him to come back to
her, weary from the pricks of the day.
The way he would come home to her,
please God, some day. Not bearing
his burdens to her, he did not bellevo
In that, but asking her diversions. Con
tentment spread her soft wings over
him. He fell asleep.
Rlekard wakened as to a call. What
had startled him? He listened, rais
ing himself by his elbow. From a dis
tance, a sweet high voice, unreal In Its
pitch and thrilling quality, came to
him. It was Godfrey, somewhere on
the levee, singing by the river. It
brought him again to Innes Hardin.
He pulled aside his curtain which
hung over the screening of his tent
and looked out Into a moon-flooded
world. Rlckard's eyes fell on a little
tent over yonder, a white shrine.
ns thnt fine sweet soul of
Wandering Into the night, Godfrey
passed down the river, singing. His
voice, ' the footlights, tho listening
great audiences were calling to htm.
To him, tho moon-flooded levee, the
glistening - water, made a star-set
scene. He was treading the boards,
the rushing,waters by the bank gave
the orchestration for his melody—"La
Donna e Mobile." He began It to Gerty
Hardin; she would hear It In her tent;
she would take It as the tender re
proach he hnd teased herewith that
afternoon In the rainnda.
He gave for encore a ballad long
forgotten; he had pulled It back from
the cobwebs of two decades; he had
made It his own.
"But, my darling, you will bo,
Ever young and fnlr to me."
It came, the soaring voice, to Tom
Hardin, outside Gerty's tent on his
lonely cot. He knew that gong. Dis
dained by his wife, n pretty figure a
man cuts! If his wife can't stand
him, who can? He wasn't good enough
for her. He was rough. His life had'
kept him from fitting himself to her
taste. She needed people who coull
talk like Rlekard, sing like Godfrey
People, other people, might miscon
strue ber preferences. He knew thej
were not flirtations; she needed her
kind. She would always keep straight;
she was straight as a whip. Life was
as hard for her as It was for him; he
could feel sorry for her; his pity was
divided between the two of them, the
husband, the wife, both lonely In their
On the other side of the canvas
walls, Gerty Hardin lay listening to
the message meant for her. The fickle
sex, he had called hers; no constancy
In woman, he hnd deelnred, fondling
her hair, ne had tried to coax her
Into pledges, pledges which were also
disavowals to the man outside.
Bllver threads! Age shuddered at
her threshold. She hated that song.
Cruel, life hnd been to her; none of Its
promises hnd been kept To be happy,
why, thnt was a human's birthright;
grab It, that was her creed! There
was a chance yet; youth had not gone.
He was singing It to her, her escape—
"Darling, you will be.
Ever young and fair to me."
Godfrey, singing to Gerty Hardin,
had awakened the camp. Innes, In
her tent, too, was listening.
"Darling, you will be.
Ever young and fnlr to me!"
So that is the miracle, that wild
rush of certain feeling! Yesterday,
doubting, tomorrow, more doubts—but
tonight, the song, the night Isolated
them, herself and Rlekard, Into a
world of their own. Life with blm on
any terms she wanted.
The Battle In the Night.
Gathering on the bank were the
camp groups to watch the last stand
of the river against the rock bombard
ment. Molly Silent had crept down
from the Crossing, full of fears. Out
there, somewhere on the trestles, on
oae of those rock ears, was her Jim.
Bbe sat oq the bank by Innes and lira.
Mrs. Hardin, floated by In her crisp
muslins. A few feet b&lnd stalked
Godfrey, his eyes on the pretty figure
by his side. Innes turned from his
look, abashed as though she had been
peering through a locked door.
Gayly, with a fluttering of ruffles,
Gerty established herself on the bank,
a trifle out of hearing distance. A
hard little smile pljiyed on the Hps ac
cented with Parisian rouge. The child
ish expression was gone; her lcq£ ac
cused life of having trifled with her.
But they would see—
"Don't look so unhappy, dearest,"
whispered the man at her side. "I'm
going to make you happy, dear!"
She flushed a brilliant, finished smile
at him. Yes, she was proud of him.
He satisfied her sense of romance, or
would, later, when she was away from
here, a dull pain pricking at her delib
erate planning. Godfrey found her
young, young and distracting. His
life had been hungry, too; the wife,
up there In Canada soniejidiere, had
never understood him. Godfrey was
ambitious, ambitious as she was. She
would be his wife; she would see the
cities of the world with him, the wel
comed wife of Godfrey; she would
share tha plaudits Ills wonderful voles
His eyes were on her now, she knew,
questioning, not quite sure of her. She
bad worried him yesterday because
the would not pledge herself to marry
aim If he sued for his divorce. She
had told him to aRk her that after the
courts had set him free. She could
not have him sure of her.
An exclamation from him recalled
her. She found that he was no longer
staring at her; his eyes were fixed on
the trembling structure over which a
"battleship," laden with roek, was
"I want to stay with you, you know
that dearest But It doesn't feel right
to see them all working like niggers
and me loafing here. You don't mind?"
Oh, no, Gerty did not mind! She
was tired, anyway! She was going
back to her tent!
He thrust p yellow paper Into her
hands. "I sent that off today. Per
haps you will be glad?"
She flung another of her Inscrutable
smiles at him, and went up the bank,
the paper unread in her hands.
The long afternoon wore away. They
were now dynamiting the Inrgest rocks
on the cars befare unloading them.
The heavy loads could not be emptied
quickly enough. Not dribbled, the roek,
but dumped simultaneously, else the
gravel and rock might be washed
down stream faster than they could be
put together. Many curs must be un
loaded at once; the din on Silent's
train was terrific. His crew looked
like devils, drenched from the spray
which rose from the river each time
the rock-pour began; blackened by the
smoke from the belching engine. The
river was ugly In Its wrath. It was
humping Itself for Its final stand
against the absurdity of human Inten
tion; Its yellow tail swished through
the bents of the trestle.
The order .came for more speed.
Rlcknrd moved from bank to raft;
knee deep In water, screaming orders
through the din; directing the gangs;
speeding the rock trains. Ilard&i oscil
lated between the levee and dams, tak
ing orders, giving orders. His energy
was superb. It had grown dark, but
no one yet had thought of the lights,
the great Wells' burners stretched
across the channel. Suddenly, the
lights flared out brightly.
Not-one of those who labored or
watched would ever forget that night.
The spirit of recklessness entered
even Into the stolid native. The men
of the Reclamation forgot this was not
their enterprise; the Hardin faction
jumped to Rlckard's orders. The
watchers on the bank sat tense,
thrilled out of recognition of aching
muscles, or the midnight creeping chill.
No one would go home.
To Innes, the struggle was vested
In two men, Rlcknrd running down
yonder with that light foot of his, and
Hardin with the fighting mouth tense.
And somewhere, she remembered,
working with the rest, was Hstrada.
f Those three were fighting for the justi
fication of a vision—an Idea was at
stake, a hope for the future.
Rlcknrd passed and repassed her.
And had not seen her! Not during
those hours would he think of her, not
until the Idea failed, or was trium
phant, would he turn to look for her.
Visibly, the drama moved toward Its
climax. Before many hours passed the
river would bo captured or the Idea
forever mocked. Each time a belching
engine pulled across that hazardous
track It flung a credit to the man-side.
Each time tho waters, slowly rising,
hurled their weight against the creak
ing trestle* where the rock was thin,
a point was gained by the militant riv
er. Its roar sounded like the last cry
of a wounded animal In Innes' ear;
the Dragon was a reality that night as
It spent Its rage against the shackles
of puny men.
Molly Silent had seen her husband's
train pull In. She watched for It to
go out again. The whistle blew twice.
So nothing was wrong. She left her
place In time to see Silent, his face
shining ghastly pale under the soot,
pull himself up from the "battleship"
where he hnd been leaning. l>trada,
sent by Rlekard to flm) out why the
train did not pull out, saw him the
lame Instant as did Molly. Silent
swayed, waving them back unseelngly,
like a man who" Is drunk.
"God, man, you can't go like that!"
"Who's going?" demanded Silent, his
tongue thick with thirst and exhaus
tion. The whistle blew again.
"I will!" The train move! onf on
the trcs»>, as the whistle blew angrily
twice. Or.ly Molly and Silent saw Es
trada go. Silent staggered unseelngly
up the bank toward the ■•aitp. tSoilj
The river was humping out yonder J
the rolling mass came roaring, flank,
on, against the dam.
"Quick, for God's sake, quick!"
yelled Rlekard. His signals sounded
short and sharp. "Dump It on, throw
the cars In!" Marshall was dancing,
his mouth fall of oaths, on the bank
edge. Breathlessly all watched the
rushing water fling Itself over the dam.
GRAHAM, N. C., THURSDAY. JUNE 19, 1919
"God, Man, You Can't Qo Like That!"
For several hushed seconds the struc
ture could not be seen. When the
foam fell a cheer went up. The dam
wns standing. Silent, It was supposed,
was bringing In his train.
Above the distant Jagged line ot
mountains rose a red ball. A new day
began. And again the Dragon rose; a
mountain of water came rolling dam

"Don't stop now to blast the big
ones. Pour 'em on!" ordered Rlekard.
There was a long wait before any
rock fell. Marshall and Rlekard wait
ed for the pour. The whistles blew
again. Then they saw what was
wrong. The morning light showed a
rock weighing several tons which wns
resisting the efforts of the pressing
crew. Out of the gloom sprang other
figures with crowbars. The rock tot
tered. fell. The river tossed It as
though It were a tennis ball, sent It
hurtling down the lower face of the
Things began to go wild. Tho men
were growing reckless. They were
sagging toward exhaustion; mistakes
were made. Another rock, ns heavy as
the last, was worked townrd the edge.
Men were thick about It with crow
bnrs. They hurried. One concerted
effort drawing back as the roek top
pled over the edge. One mun waa too
slow, or too tired. He slipped. The
watchers on tho bank saw a flash of
waving amis, heard a cry; they had a
glimpse of a blackened face as the
foam caught It. The waters closed
There was a hush of horror; a halt.
"God himself couldn't save that poor
devil," cried Marshall. "Have the
work go on!"
Pour rocks on that wretch down
there? Pin him down? Never had It
Beemed more like war! "A man
down? Ride over him! to victory!"
Soberly Rlekard signaled for the work
to go on.
The rock-pour stuttered ns If In hor

No one knew who It was. Some poor
"Who was It?" demnnded Rlekard,
running down to the track.
"Tho young Mexican, Hestroda. 'E
tried to 'elp. 'E wasn't fit."
"Who wag It?" Marshall had run
down to sec why the work paused.
Rlekard turned shocked eyes on his
chief. "Estrada I" Tho beautiful
mournful eyes of Eduardo were on
him, not Marshall's, horrified. Now he
knew why Estrada had said, "I can't
see It finished."
"Rlekard!" The engineer did not
recognize the quenched voice, "The
work has got to go on."
It came to Rlekard as he gave the
orders that Eduardo was closer to Mar
shall than to him. "As near a son as
he'll ever have." He turned a minute
later to see his chief standing bare
headed, nis own cap came off.

Another ridge of yellow waters rose.
The roll of water came slowly, dwin

trestle weakly. For the first time the
trestle never shuddered. Workers and
watchers breathed as a unit the first
deep breath that night. There was a
change. Every eye was on the river
where it touched the rim of the dam.
Suddenly a chorused cry rose. The
river had stopped rising. The whistles
screamed themselves hoarse.
And then a girl, sitting on the bank,
saw two men grab %ach other by the
tiand. She was too far awuy to hear
their voices, but the sun, rising red
through the bnnks of smoke, fell on
the blackened faces of her brother and

CARE OF BACK-YARD POULTRY
Phase of Home Production That
Should Be Considered by Those
Desiring Egge and Meet
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The keeping of fowls on a town lot
or In the back yard Is a phase of home
production that should be considered
by all who desire to supply the tuble
with eggs and meat at a cost consid
erably below the usual market price.
Ordinarily, the keeping of from 12 to
25 hens Is sufficient to provide the
average family with eggs and meat.
For a flock of 26 hens a space of from
20 to 80 square feet per bird should
be allowed, and the yard so divided
as to permit them to be alternated
from one yard to the other. Thus, a
lot of 25 by 80 feet, which Is even
smaller than the average town lot,
should be the minimum space for a
flock of this size. By having the
yard divided cover crops, such as
wheat, oats, rape, or rye, can be
growing In the unused yard nnd
when sufficiently grown the fowls be
sllowed to pasture It.
For a yard 26 by 80 feet, or 750
square feet In size, the above-men
tioned grains may be sown In the fol
lowing amounts: Wheat, 2V4 pounds;
oats, 1% pounds; rye, 8% pounds;
rape,' 2Vi ounces. When available,
lawn clippings make excellent green
feed for fowls.
In this way the contamination of
the soil and the possibility of disease
ure reduced to a minimum, and at

the same time green food Is provided.
The actual selection of tho breed
should not be a difficult matter when
one considers that more depends upon
the way fowls are managed than upon
the breed Itself. Pure-bred fowls of
the general-purpose or egg type pur
chased for a reasonable figure are well
suited for backyard poultry plants.
However, when pure-bred fowls can
Hot be obtained, grades properly cared
for and fed will usually produce suf

of the average family.
SENSIBLE TREATMENT OF HEN
Indlepeneable Requlremente for Suc
cess Are Comfortable Quarters
snd Good Feed.
It makes no difference to a canary
whether It Is kept In a cage that cost
|lO or 10 cents, or whether It has Its
feed and drink lu china or earthen
dishes; but it makes an Immense dif
ference whether It has good care or
Is neglected, and whether or not Its
needs are properly supplied. These
things are qually true of a hen.
Sensible treatment Is of far greater
Importance than stylish quarters.
A fine equipment should not lie de
spleed. It can be so used as to be
of great value. Still It Is not one
oT the vital things. The Indispensable
requirements tut success In the pool
try bnslness are good stock; comfort
able and healthful quarters; feed and
ilrlnk of good quality, In proper quan
tity and at suitable times; and full
protection from diseases and enemies.
AVOID SOUR OR MUSTY FOOD
Severe Losses Will Result From Use
of Poor Feed During Hot Dsye
During hot weather sour or musty
food Is more apt to be used for poul
try feed than in the winter. Severe
losses will result from the use of
poor feed, so It pays fo know the
exact condition of the grain In the
bins which may have been th»'re for
a long time. Never allow portions
of the mash to remain In the troughs
on hot iays as It may Income con

War Savlnga Stampa Help.
President Wilson haa asked for food
to stop the wave of Bolshevism roll
ing westward o*t of Russia. No Intel
ligent person doubta the value of food
aa a first aid, but at bottom the secur
ity of our Institutions rests upon the
working Interest the people take In
CltUens having no Interest In a gov
ernment, ro economic Interest In the
•uccess of that government are apt to
be the first victims of vicious propa
ganda or unbalanced political theo
rists. On the other hand men and
women who have Invested In their
government either by way of conduct
ing private-enterprtae under lta pro
tection or through direct purchaae of
government securities have something
at stake and desire to maintain stable
Institutions. Such persons are not
necessarily reactionists. They may
be quite progressive and anxious for
reform where reform Is needed.
Consequently the effective barrier
to Bolahevlsm In America today Is
thrift and Investment. The philosophy
must reach Into the workshops of the
nation. It Is reaching Into those work
shops and Into the schoolhouses of the
nation In the form of the Thrift
Btamp and the War Savings Stamp.
When everybody In America Is buy

a habit one won't hear much about
Bolshevism In America. It Is the
financial and patriotic duty of every
American who !oves real liberty to
