John Barton had fallen In love with
Lucy Dean after the Drat germs of
his deadly bad sowed them-
selves In his mind. Ones there, they
had taken root and nourished, so that
not even the new Interest la bis life
could prevent their development
The idea possessed him. body and
boyhood the temptation
had come to him at idle moments
when be was vaguely dissatisfied with
life. But he had always fought It
down and conquered with sheer will
He knew, however, that the law
could never touch him. He knew that
he could carry this design with
impunity, holding harrowing
knowledge of it In own
the day of discovery.
Love comes unexpectedly enough,
and Barton's soul was torn In twain
after Lucy had promised to be his
wife Yet. fight as be might be could
not withstand the prompting of that
Impulse within. He had given rein
to It too long.
He bad a month's vacation every
summer. That would be ample time
In which to set his purpose, though
his plan would not come to full
for two or three months longer.
However, it was only necessary to
start and, automatically, the train
that he had fired would smolder until,
without intervention upon his part
the ripe fruits of enterprise
cams manifest.
Barton had rented a little furnished
cottage in a remote region of the
where his only neigh-
were a few woodmen.
He made some miserable excuse to
Lucy to cover his absence for so long
a period, and disappeared from the
haunts of his friends. And, the even-
after bis departure from the Grand
Central station found him In the little
cottage, alone, staring out moodily
across tho lake.
The clay-colored chemical which
was so essential a feature of his de-
sign stood on little bare table
In the room which he had selected for
his operations.
He had the formula calculated to a
nicety. All that was necessary was
time for the chemical combinations to
become permanent and to produce
their rich crop of results. The

since man emerged from barbarism,

enlightened, and of recent years so

It was on fifth morning after his
arrival that he received a letter from

The sight of delicate hand-

How fond had been of each
How the knowledge that aha

and. more, It was succeeding. There
was no do of that Science In-
fallible, and her laws absolute. And
he had used only a tenth part of the
clay-colored chemical, with Its faint
aromatic smell, so subtle an agent
In hi great and yet apparently
so innocuous.
John answered Lucy's letter,
himself on tho ground that he
needed perfect rest, and remained la

Then the day of decision dawned.
There was a letter from Lucy. John

Some Time.
The local tobacco market will open
tomorrow for the spring sales. The
fall sales were very indeed,
in fad there were more pounds sol-J
and at higher price than almost any-
body expected. The farmers as well
as the buyers are
thoroughly well pleased and satisfied
with the sales up to date. The outlook
for successful sales during the com-
months is very bright, there is a
large amount of tobacco yet to be sold
and It is fully expected that sales will
be brisk.
Greenville has made a tine record
this year and bids fair to come out
near the head of the list of
sold in North Carolina or even nearer
than last year. With a total of pounds
already sold reaching nearly to
pounds this market has a record
which It should be proud of and cu-
that speaks well for the warehouse
