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

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

would not be more than 75 per cent,
as large as last year’s. However, fuv

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.

Wsriir Bios, Pictures, Inc.
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- ,
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

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*.

swung’suddenly to the left into th« j
Mineola road. 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

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- |
, 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.

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
“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.™"
