dead and dying on the fields.

Huh! Ves: only about two days

tin I'd fetched along. Then after
lunk' Joe always called lunch lunk
"I started back. ,1 was coming along
easy, not on the path, but in the wood
about twenty yards to the south of it.
and afore I'd gone above three or
four acres a shot was fired at me from
above. The bullet didn't strike me.
but as I was In a wonderful poor place
for cover just three or :s four spruces
and half a dozen sticks of wild rasp

got the bullet, pitched over the way a

in the shoulder that time, and I gave
a kick and shoved in among the rasp

he kind o paused, and I guesses he's

to get up to have a look at him."
"Surely that was risky. How could
you know he was dead?"
'Heard the bullet strike and saw the
hat go backward. A man don't nev

I guess. Then you come along."
Evening had fallen before we ultl

Joe thought It possible the front en
trances might be commanded from the
wood on that side.
We went at once to the room where
Worke was lying and Joe gave him a
rapid description of the man he had
That's Tomllnson.' said Worke at
once. "Them two brothers lives to

"You'll know afore night," replied
Joe. "What are their names ?"
"Dandy is the one with the black
beard, while him they calls Muppy i
a foxy colored man."
"Thank you." said Joe. "Now. Bill,
if you keep them names to yourself
I'll come back in half an hour and tell
you who it was shot you."
On Joe's appearance Linda started up
and ran to him.
"You're wounded!" she cried.
"It's nothin' much. Miss Linda."
But as we laid him down on the
couch he seemed to lose consciousness.

it to his ilps. He swallowed some of
it and then insisted upon sitting up.

And Joe had to give way. With her
capable and gentle hands Linda soon

him to his bunk.
"So you've got it?" Puttick said. "I
warned you. Lucky you're not dead."
"Yes, ain't it?" returned Joe.
Well I knew that soft drawl, which
November's voice never took except In
moments of fiercest tension.
"You'd best join your hands above

Joe had picked my revolver from the

Equal to Any, Says Admiral Fletcher,
Except that-of England
Washington, Dec. 10. The ability
of the American navy to successfully
meet the war fleet' of any nation, ex except
cept except Great Britain was asserted yes yesterday
terday yesterday by Rear Admiral Fletcher,
commander-in-chief of the Atlantic
fleet before the House naval affaire
committee. The possibility of conflict
with Great Britain was so remote, the
pdmiral said, that he did not believe
in a naval policy designated to control
the oceans as- against that country.
Admiral Fletcher was under cross-
examination all day by the committee
at the first public hearing on a naval
appropriation bill held in many years.
He was plied with many questions
about condition of the navy, judged
by lessons of the European war. Al
though confidently declaring the Am
erican navy was over-matched only
by that of England, he added, that if
this country continued to build only
two battleships a year, Germany on
the basis of her present construction
program, soon would be far in the
The admiral said, he had no doubt
in the ability of the United States to
control the seas in "a naval conflict
with Japan, but when questioned spe specifically
cifically specifically he would not say that the
American fleet alone could successful successfully
ly successfully defend the, Philippines and Hawaii
against a Japanese expedition.
Ultimate naval success, Admiral
Fletcher contended, must rest with
dreadnoughts. Submarines, he de declared,
clared, declared, would not seriously affect the
vital principles of naval warfare. He
admitted, however, that from a for foreign
eign foreign navy viewpoint it was possible to
send submarines across the Atlantic
to attack warships on the American
In the event of war he said all Am American
erican American battleships available could be
made ready for action within a week.
