It was a poor return for such a favor! The longer he thought over the dilemma, the more perplexed he .became. He thought, too, of the everlasting wonder, the tail of John Moreland's bedtime prayer. How a man could go down on his knees and ask the blessings of the Almighty upon men whom lie meant to fight the next day was a thing that Bill Dale could not understand. It was after midnight before he slept. He woke at the break of day. arose and dressed himself, and went out. Going toward the flower-fillefront yard, be found himself facing a very angry John Moreland. "What's the matter?" he asked. "Matter enough," clipped the mounto ax taineer. "Bill Dale, I'm you a question, and I want the truth. Will I git it?" "You'll get the truth If you get anything. Shoot the question." "All right. What do you know about my gun?"

His eyes took in at a sweeping glance the homemade dining table with Its cover or re-- : stove, the oilcloth, the broken cast-irostrings of dried peppers bunging on the log walls, the broken stiliworm lying in the corner. "The Littlefords," said Dale, "haw declared war." "Sakes!" laughed the old woman. "We knowed that last night when we heered them ten shots." "And all the Moreland rifles are missing." Dale watched the effect or his words. "What!" the Hecks cried in one voice. Their . surprise seemed genuine. Dale pressed the subject further ami learned only that if they knew anything Concerning the disappearance of the rifles they were not going to tell. Then he started homeward by way sycof tiie pool above the blown-dowamore. There wus a chance that Ben Little-ford'- s daughter would be there fishing. Dale told himself, and it was barely possible that she could throw some light on the mystery of the rifles. He crossed the river by means ol the prostrate tree. Babe was there; she sat on the stone on which she had been sitting the morning before; her back was to him, and her bare feet were in the water to her ankles. Dale went up cloe, stopped nnd gatliereu a handful of violets and dropped them ovt ; her .. ulder and into her lap. Babe looiced around and smiled. "What luck, Miss Llttleford?" "Nothiif. I don't much want to ketch anything." she said slowly, a spirit of m: ines3 in her musical voice. "I 1 jet come off down here to be You ought to hear thf whar It'i.

I'd be glad to give my life to stop itl" "I'll help you, If I can," Dale told her. "Perhaps we can make friends of the Morelands and your people." "1'ou don't know what a hard thing it'd be," she replied tearfully. "The two sets has hated each other ever sence I can rlckollect And you won't be here very long, 1 reckon." "1 may be here for the rest of my life," said Dale. "Is it the coal?" Inquired Babe. 'Tartly yes, it's the coal. I'm going to develop It for the Morelands." Babe looked at him with a tiny herald of hope In her eyes. Before she could speak again there came from somewhere back in the meadow the sound of her father's voice d-d- o. while I'm In Cincinnati unless H fall iu get uiu inuney iiuuj xiuiiia. nucu 1 get back, which should be withiu eight days, we'll sfart the work. At a guess, I'd say we'll need twenty men. Can we get them?" "Shore," nodded the mountaineer. "And all Morelands at that." At last They turned homeward. Bill Dale was happy. He had something to do now an aim in life. He had difficulties to overcome, obstacles to remove, barriers to surmount It was h!s big chance! f wenFhomewaratharhe was"beglnnlng It was almost sundown when Dale returned from his visit to the coal vein Big Tine mountain hid the sun at a little after three in the afternoon. He borrowed a fishing rod and a minnow pall, which made his going to the river seem proper enough to John .Moreland, and set out to meet Babe Llttleford. He was glad that nobody expressed a desire to accompany him. xie found Ben Llttleford's daughter where he had found her twice before sitting on a stone the size of a small barrel. She was fishing with an hook, which was equal to fishing not at all. and she seemed pleased when she saw him coming. He sat down on the stone at her side. She moved over a little shyly, and tried to cover her feet with her calico skirts. "Needn't bother to hide them." lauirhed Bill Dale. "They're pretty enough. Most feet, y'know. are necessary, evils, like chimneys and un-bait- to like Babe Llttleford. He did not light the feeling, because It somehow made the world seem a better place. Early the following morning Dale made ready for his Journey to Cincinnati. Having learned the evening before that he was going. By Heck had come t. accompany him to the Halfway swi'ch. The two set out. They had three 's hours in which to cross David the arrival of mountain before Dale's train, and they walked leisurely. They had not gone a dozen rods when there came from somewhere down near the river the sound of a rifle shot. Both stopped and faced More-land- about quiekly.

"I learned," was the answer, "that the Littlefords all lost their guns just is the Morelands did." "The devil!" The mountaineers began to crowd ibout Dale.

Within ten more minutes,. every man of the Morelands was gathered there at the house of their chief and every man of them had v lost their weapons during the night! John Moreland called Dale aside and said to him: "You're high on the good side o' them thar triflin' Hecks, and. so fer as they know, you ain't interested In the feud.

When Dale had gone off down the dusty oxwagon road, Caleb Moreland climbed a tall ash that grew behind his father's cabin and kept a watch toward the Llttleford side of the river. He saw a group of men standing dn Ben Littleford's cabin yard, and nothing else. A little more than a quarter of an hour after Dale left John Moreland he entered by the gateless gateway at the cabin of Xha Hecks. It was a di lapidated place, and It stood not far from the river. By sat in the front j doorway ; he was lazily cutting a new midday sun mark in the place of the worn old one. Behind him sat his mother, who was busily knitting a gray yarn stocking. The moonshiner looked up and started quickly to his feet. "Hi, thar, Bill, old boy!" he greeted cordially. "My gosh, but ye've come at the right time, shore. We're to have young squirrels fo dinner, and a b'iled hamshank .with string beans, , and cawnbread made with the yeller o'jheii aigs. Live whilst ye do live, says L Come right In. Bill, old boy." "La, la, la!" cried Granny Heck, looking over the brass rims of her spectacles. "How glad 1 am to see ye, Mr. Bill I Come right In and tell us j y j "Mad at You?" Asked Dale. "No; but he would ha' been ef he hadn't ha' had all his madness turned ag'ln them Morelands. You knowed Lancaster. hour later Dale cornered the Moreland leader on the front porch and suggested that they look over the coal property that afternoon. He was eager to go to work, eager to be doing something worth while, he told Moreland. The hillman stood very still for what seemed to the other a very long time, and had no word to say. Evidently the feud had all his mind now. When he did speak, he said simply: "All right, BUI." After half an hour of fighting their way through thickets of blooming laurel and Ivy, they drew up before an old and mildewed cabin at the north end of David Moreland's mountain. Moreland led the way In and pointed to a spot under a small, paneless window. "Thar." said he, "Is whar we found my brother David." The two men turned for the point at which the coal vein ran out to the light of day. Dale picked up a piece of the shining black stuff. Judging by the little he knew and the great amount of description he had heard, the vein was very large and the coal itself of the tinest gytde. "It was a big find," lie told his companion, "a big find. It was a pity to let It lie here untouched for so long: and yet it's worth more today than it was ever worth before." tils enthusiasm ran warm, and More-lancaught it quickly. Together they hastily planned out th? little railroad that was to wind its way through the wilds and connect with the big railroad at the Halfway switch. right about It" "I know I'm the mountaineer said twice for the benefit of his conscience. . "1 know pore David he would want' me to do this ef he could know." "I'm sure, of it," agreed Dale. "I'll start for "Cincinnati tomorrow-- I've got enough money to take me there I have a very wealthy and back. friend there his name Is Harris ; I think 1 can borrow enough from him to finance the beginning of. this thing..

Babe was quick to say that she w.puld crawl under the house and look for the coin, although she had just put on a freshly launcalico dress. Her dered anxiety showed plainly in her face. Her father questioned her sharply, and she stammered in spite of herself. Ben Littleford's suspicions were aroused. So he came out from under the cabin floor with his hands full of the steel of rifle barrels, and with the money forgotten. He placed the rifles carefully on the floor of the porch, turned and caught his daughter by the arm. "Who hid 'em?" he demanded grulfly. "1 hid 'em," was the ready answer, defiant and bitter "I, me!

"Et he don't like the way we do here, he can go back home," retorted the angry mountaineer. "He ain't tied, Is he?"

Dale gave a hoarsecry and gaUiered her limp figure Into his arms. John Moreland waved aloft the white handkerchief and bellowed to his kinsmen to stop tiring. Then silence came. "Come over here, Ben Littleford!" shouted John Moreland. "Ye've shot yore own gyrul !"
