I i The government on Tuesday -will is- ■ sue its last cotton forecast for the , present crop and immediate prices will i be governed iu a large measure by the reiiort. Some local eottou men pre dict that the estimate will not be low- ( er than the last one, which predicted a crop of a little move than 15,000,- ] keep iu touch with the situation have 000 bales. Some other local men \v|fo 1 expressed the opinion tjiat the last ] estimate will be reduced in Tuesday's ( forecast. It will be remembered that j the Inst estimate wus about 88,000 ] " bales less than the next to the last, 1 and following its publication prices ’ on the New York and New Orleans j markets rose from $5 to $6 a bale. I While it is generally agreed that a crop of 15,000.000 bales can be used, ; there are many eottou men w ho do not expect prices to go much above 20 cents. Neither do they expect, prices ; lo go much lower. Cotton at present | is bringing lit 1-2 eeuts on the Con cord market, the local price of course, 1 being influenced by the New York .. market prices. While some cotum growers con tend that cotton this year could not be raised for 19 1-2 eeuts per pound, ./ri’fhere are others who feel that they are making a fair profit when the staple sells for that price. Farmers who re fused 24 cents for their cotton earlier in the season are selling for 19 1-2 cents now and while they have lost the difference between the prices they * rr s*>tl to feel that they have made a profit at the smaller figure. It is jfredicted now by one local cotton buyers who have beeu to all sections of tie county and who buys thuosaudb of bales on the local mar ket ctich year, that the l!)g5 crop will be as large as tie crop. Dur ing, the summer months it was gener ally believed that the crop this year would not be more than 75 per cent, as large as last year’s. However, fuv (£•„ arable weather during recent weeks | has aided the staple and the county k , .bids fair to produce as large a cnop as it did last year.

RANKERS SEE PROSPERITY IN THE STATE. Several hundred investment bank ers from all sections of the country passed through North Carolina Satur day, fortunately for themselves and the State, making the trip through Tarbeelia in the daytime. , The bankers stopped in Charlotte t for a short time and there newspaper men talked with a number of them. The bankers had seen many evidences of prosperity in the State and they predicted great things for the future. ' The good roads in the State attract ed the eye of many of the visitors, while others, who were already very familiar with condititons, spoke of the soundness of the State’s natural re sources and other factors in the State's progress. Our water development was declared by oue visitor to be our biggest asset, while another spoke of our educational institutions and still another lauded our industrial oppor tunity and the manner iu which we have seized the chance to become a great manufacturing State. These bankers went on to their con vention in Florida and from there they will return to homes throughout the nation. They are going to talk North Carolina for they have recog nized iu tlie State the most progressive commonwealth in the Southern States and one of the most progressive in the country. They will give the State) fine publicity and undoubtedly will be anxiously willing to handle any busi ness that may arise in their lines per taining to the State. TODAY’S EVENTS.

Another claim is to be made for Duke University other than “the richest in the nation.” It is going to be "tlie prettiest.” The Chronicle, paper published by the students here, this week gives information on the progress of construction work, one item of which is “thirty-seven buildings" in the main group on top of the plateau; the other is a cam pus of 4.0(10 acres of virgin forest of great natural beauty, which is to he Improved by the landscape artist.

SYNOPSIS Connemara Moore, disguised at a nun, and young David Lacy, . wp%m the met tonight for the frit time, had put. hoarded a ferry to cross Long leland Sound from Connecticut, when a burly stranger approached them and announced, mysteriously, "I’m Pooch." Bach in Aunt Celimena’s Connecticut home is a worried company. Before midnight Connemara was to announce her engagement—to Bing Carrington or Salt Adams-r—or be disinherited. But, Instead, she’s disappeared, leav ing two very nervous suitors. I CHAPTER V—Continued There were only a few cars ahead of them, and Lacy worked up quickly behind the green Packard. The moon was full. It wa# one of those rare nights which make June j so popular for weddings and out- , door drinking. Ahead the road un- ] wound in a gray, luminous band. ' i Higher and higher rose the hum of the motors as the two cars shook off the ferry traffic and raced past ( the tented nomads of Bayville. ( Pooch leaned forward. “Here is , th’ jack,” he said. “I didn’t want , t’ give it to you on th’ ferry. Never , c’n tell who’s nosin' round. I want , t’ get shook of it, though. I’ll give ( it you, sis. You c’n stockin’ it fer , th’ boss here. He’s workin' now , Count it. Therg’s fifty grand there. , Thank God, that's gone!” A thick roll of bills bound with an elastic band was placed in Sister Connemara's hand as they lurched ; around a curve with the speedo- j meter wavering around forty-five. ] Mechanically she leaned for- ; ward to the dashboard light, re- i moved the strap, and counted the i money. Fifty brand new, fluttering “I think there’s been an aeci- ] lent,” Connemara wu moved to ex- , plain. thousand-dollar notes! Rolling them. : up, she hesitated a moment and ( ihen with sudden determination ■ tucked them inside the voluminous , (olds of her nun’s habit. i Pooch again: “That damn Pierce’s 1 cornin’ up. Drive up to the Pack ed an' I’il tell ’em t’ take her out 1 of second. That bunch ought to be 1 hackin’ for some funeral parlor.” Th? big Isotta leaped ahead with a warning croak—from the horn. Trees, fences, softly lit >iouses flashed past in crazy pano rama. Rounding a corner on the wrong side of the road, they left a Ford sedan stranded in the ditch. Gradually they drew up to the Packard. Pooch cupped his hands and shouted, but the wind tore his words away. The Packard driver seemed to understand, however, for lte increased his speed and took the lead once more. Through the deserted streets of Glen Cove tore the two racing cars. A sleepy policeman leaning against the bank at the four corners roused himself sufficiently to stagger to the curb and open his mouth several times after the retreating tail lights, On past the Engineers, through Sea Cliff aud up the winding hill flanking Roslyn H#rb6r. They were approaching Rpslyp. I At the four corners where the North Wtmneiaad turnptke joins the Sea Cliff roa)4 there was » right angled turn. Both cars threw on all their brakes and skidded into the main street. Down the hill and through the town they tore, to the delight of the few village story-tell ers assembled in front of the local Greek’s Around the Corner. Be hind them slid a Pierce runabout, its mudguard tearing a sear on the dummy cop as its awrad PMt- The patrons of the looal Greek cheered*. I At the clock tower the Packard •■IST HAY “IT”.

Whether Lacy coulc j not make the turn or whither hr J did not want to was not clear. Tha j Isotta wavered for a fraction of a J second and then went thundering I j up the Roslyn hill toward New York. The driver of a' motor bu» coming in the opposite direction stopped and, leaning from his seat, started to express his opinion o! drivers who did not dim their lights. ! He stopped iff the middle of.a with ering line and gazed open-mouthed at the spark-spitting black streak that swept up the long grade as M it did not exist. As he started again the lights of the following Pierc* broke full in his eyes. Tsirowins his wheel to the right, he buried th» nose of the bus in the clay bank beside the road. Two sleepy pas sengers picked themselves oft th# floor, promising to have him dis charged for reckless driving Faster and faster, they shot on toward Connemar. clutched the side of the car with . one hand and with the otheP press ed hard against her cqwJ. Two f cars appeared going in opposite di- t rections half a mile ahead. An in. f stant later the Isotta was between | them. The lurching tonneau touch- | ed the small sedan on its right. A | sound resulted as of someone strik- £ ing a dishpan with his knuckles, i The sedan partly overturned and | fine to rest against a post. f A shot sounded from the back | seat. Lacy s first thought, was tor 1 his tires. He glanced back. Pooch f had knocked out the back window i and was kneeling on the seat, a 1 revolver pointed through the open- | ing. , There was another report, but this I time from the. front of the car. The f right front tire went careening j. along the ditch beside them. The f hood leaped into the air. Lacy jam- jj med on the brakes, but it was to: | late. Like a creature in its death j? throes, the car staggered back and | forth across the road twice. There ji was a ripping of steel through wood. | The Pierce passed them, stopped j: fifty yards down tlie road, then |! backed to the wreck. Two men | with drawn revolvers got out. .CHAPTER VI sjLsLeLz i By Mead* Minnigerode A discouraging odor those odors which disengage them, selves from catastrophes—or rather, a concatenation of viciously incom patible odors—arose into the tenu- i ous June night air like a flight of j very bad angels. Showers of Stars, i so it seemed momentarily to Con- | nemara, sprinkled the vault ot heav- 1 en with pyrotechnic splendor. There was a hissing and a sputtering, a clanking and crunching, and ri&ve t)ie uproar tlie steady booming of enraged profanity. It proceeded from the overturned sedan, a man’s voice complaining, bitterly and mon otonously, like an intermittenufog horn. “Whgt the blazes did you g«j’and do that for?” he kept inquiring m- ; visibly persistent. “I think there’s been an accideut!' 1 ' Connemara was moved to explain, i but the man was not satisfied-jßor, when she came to view the situation more critically, was Connemara, And what an accident! A sedan overturned in one ditch, imprison ing a very angry gentleman ■ who would probably have a devil "of a 1 time explaining matters afterward to his wife. .The Isotta plastered like a mashed turnip against a tele graph pole in the other ditch/ after having bounded Mr. Pooch out in to the road on one side and Cdnne- 1 mara herself sitting somewhat in- ■ congruously on the spokes of the fight front wheel, spinning slowly around like a spent roulette ball just before it flips into the wrong com partment. And just in front- tbe Pierc#, from wh»*e depth* had come those two personages imped ing in. the shadows with drawn re- , volvers, who appeared ta be waiting far the whites of somebody s eyes! Connemara made bpr#elf aware of these detail* in on» comprehen sive glance. At i the same .riroe, while she still reyplved physically on h«T spinning wheal, she. like wise did so mentally around the more laliently depressing social as pects of hes present situation.™" I (To be oßarimied) 1 " ' Say it w ith new sfioys and get pinch ed.
