"You can count on me, Mr. Bowyer," answered Kitty, loathing herself and him. "But how about yourself? I understand from you that you were going slow. I hope you're not going too slow?" "You've told her you'll buy her shares at par," he said. "You haven't committed yourself Irrevocably to that?" Bowyer threw his head back and emitted one of his short laughs. "Well, I may change my mind," he said. "It Isn't in writing." "Suppose she raises Cain?" "She can't She's in too deep. She doesn't know how deep." Phayre laughed again, but nervously. "I never cared much for this business, Bowyer," he said. "If Joe Bostock hadn't died as he did I'd never have got mixed up with It But that gave us our chance. It was a very lucky accident. If we weren't committed beyond recovery, I'd pull out even now." "Pull out?" echoed the other. "How the devil can we pull out? The trick's done." for anything else. Backfiring was impossible, for the wind came up the cleared road from the muskeg with hurricane force. Wilton posted his men along the near side of the way, to beat out the patches of flame that would spring up from the burning brands carried over it by the wind. as a friend." "You can go as an enemy!" she retorted. "And you can go now. And remember there are men about here who can use a whip!" He glared at her, but went without a word, and Molly ran to the factor. "He's torturing you!" she sobbed. "I don't know what his power over you is, but he mustn't come here again!" A few days later Bowyer went in to Clayton and, by chance, his visit coincided with Wilton's. When Wilton left her house, Kitty sank down into a chair, clasping and unclasping her fingers nervously. The first time when Wilton had repulsed her, she had been too humiliated and conscience-stricketo bear him resentment. Her visit to Molly had been a n "I'm going to speed things up soon," "What's he answered, frowning. happened helps things along. I don't know what the trouble was. I thought at first it was one of those lover's quarrels. But it's lasted." His face" grew red. "I went there," he said thickly. "She wouldn't have anything to say to me. Ordered me off the place." Bowyer leaned forward confidentially. "See here, Mrs. Bostock," he said. "If I get her out of the way if I guarantee that Will Carruthers and she won't meet again, how'll that suit you?" "You've changed your mind about marrying?" "Maybe yes. Maybe no. I'm not a marrying man. Nobody is. It's generally an accident or a trap. But I can promise you there'll be no trouble from that quarter. Also, that she'll be out of the district before winter." "That won't do." said Kitty with sudden fierceness. "She may come back." said" sudden evil impulse, which, when done, she had attempted to justify. She had. of course, succeeded. Gradually she had begun to look upon herself as a deeply wronged woman. When a woman loves, love is its own justification for acts done In its name. On the second occasion of her advances to Wilton she saw by Instinct that she had almost conquered. She saw, too, that, having lost, she had lost forever. She might win Wilton yet, but never In that way. Now she would go to any lengths to oust Molly. Molly had never written to her since her departure, and she did not even know If her scheme had succeeded in estranging her from Wilton. But she inferred success from Wilton's bearing. He had not looked like a successful lover." Bitterly she reflected on her marriage with Joe. She had never loved Joe, but neither had she hated him. She had loved Wilton, and, bound by tradition and social circumstances, she had concealed it. Then Joe had died. Everything had seemed possible. And Wilton had engaged himself to another to her best friend. Kitty was not a bad woman, but she meant to fight for her own. She would T.in Wilton, cost what It might When, therefore, late on the day after he had called on her, the maid announced Tom Bowyer, who had never been in her house before,' she sent down word that she would receive him. Neither Wilton nor Bowyer was aware that the other was in Clayton when Bowyer called, nor did they meet. Kitty came downstairs, to Tnd Bowyerstanding in the parlor, twirling his hat in his hands. There' was a singularly vulpine look pn the red half-bree- ds JM K- -A "She won't. And if she did, and went down on her knees to him, he wouldn't look at her." "What do you mean?" asked Kitty breathlessly. Bowyer leaned forward again and whispered in her ear. Kitty was as pale as death. "How'll that do for you?" he asked triumphantly. Kitty rose, trembling. "I'll stick to my word," she said. "But you're the lowest cur I've ever known, Tom Bowyer, and I hope I hope somebody flays you flays the skin off you them !" "Capital!" said Bowyer. "You're a before you've run your course." "I'll take my chance of that," good partner, Phayre, and in a few days our patience will be rewarded." grinned Bowyer, as he rose.

McDonald was In his chair upstairs, Molly reading to him. But the factor did not seem to hear her; he was looking out of the window and brooding as of old. Suddenly he turned to her. 'Tin thinking of leaving here before winter, lass," he said. "Leaving here, father? For good?" "For aye," he exploded. "I thocht I'd die here and be laid beside your mother. And I've held on! God, how I've held on ! But I'm done with that hope. Would ye leave the portage, Molly?" he asked wistfully. "Yes, father! I wish we could. I wisli we could go somewhere together where we'd never have cause to remember it.! "Aye, never to remember it!" he echoed. "To Winnipeg?" she suggested timidly. He seemed to tremble at her words. He turned fiercely upon her. "To Scotland !" he shouted. "I'm done with this country. A man's thochts turn in his old age to his homeland. To Aberdeen !" Molly was awed by the old man's fanatical enthusiasm. "When shall we go?" she asked. vehicle, was wiping the blood from his face.

She heard him continue mumbling; and at length the meaning of his words readied her brain, and the horror of them numbed her and repressed all thought of fighting. came up monthly by special messenger, and was handed out the same evening. It would arrive on the Monday. Chambers could not have been after spoil of that kind. Wilton looked through Joe's papers again. Everything seemed intact, and nothing had even been tampered with. It must have been that Ghambers took Andersen came running across the smoking ground, followed n by some of the engineers. The foreman came panting up to the door of the shack. "The men are crazy drunk, Mr. and they're planning to attack the office!" he gasped. "Somebody's been telling them the safe's full of money and that they're going to be laid off because of the fire." AViiton reflected a moment, while the engineers gathered anxiously about him. "They can't open the safe," said Wilton. "At least, there's only one man can, and he's been at It already. No, never mind what I mean ! I don't want bloodshed. I'll open it and show it to them." He turned to one of the engineers. "Take four men with you and hurry to the store and see that no harm comes to Miss McDonald and her father," he ordered. "And take this," he added, picking the revolver out of the drawer and handing it to him. "You'd better come too, Mr. Carruth-ers,- " the man suggested. "No. I'll stay here," said Wilton, Suddenly half-dozeCar-ruther- fright after the murder. ( R. H. Livingstone Cwn&tlr Stewart Ki&CaBpuy which Jules had constructed for his abode. But the Muskegon was not not hear him, went out of the room toward the little wooden outbuilding "It'll be all right, my lass," the old man was muttering. "They won't hurt ye no more. They're taking us to Tom Bowyer, I reckon. He's bested us. We'll have to give In. We'll make the most of it" The old man shook with fear, but he laid his hand caressingly upon head. And afterward Molly rei her called that gesture, and remembered that It was his right one. At the time she thought nothing. She lay back with her head against the seat, resolved to husband her strength for a more desperate struggle later. If need be. Her dress was rent, her hair fell to her waist Rain had begun to fall; the horses. lashed incessantly, tore madly through the darkness, and the rig swaye'd dangerously from side to side. Molly's thoughts ran on as fiercely. They were taking her to Bowyer, then ! But Bowyer was at Cold Junction, and surely he could not harm her there! And he was hiking her father. She must remain at his side and protect him. She sat passively upon the floor, hearing, the frenzied babbling of the old man, and soothing him with one hand stretched out upon his. But this was not the way to Cold Junction. This led toward Chain of Lakes, where several fishing clubs had purchased ground and water rights and set up camps. Her heart sank. She quietly took the revolver ,on of his pocket and walked toward him. "I'm going to ask you a few questions, Tonguay,"" he remarked In a casual tone. "You'll find it to your advantage to answer them. Who sent you here?" Tonguay broke Into a short laugh. "You t'ink dey tell that to me?" he sneered. "Jim Hackett don't tell me not'lngs.

One side of his head ;had bfn almost battered to pieces with & hatchet that lay on the floor nearby. And yet Jules was not dead, for, as Wilton bent over him, he opened his eyes and smiled very faintly into his master's face. And the fingers of one outstretched hand quivered and pointed toward the office. Wilton raised Jules gently In his arms and carried him within, and laid him. on the floor. The Indian was almost at his last gasp, and he seemed struggling to express something before he died. The fluttering fingers pointed upward. All that was left of life within the broken body seemed to be concentrated in them. Wilton watched theni. The fingers squirmed and twisted. It seemed to Wilton that there was something in the room that Jules They were pointing now wanted. Ih the He went back through the kitchen. before the "This autumn, lass snows fall. But " he clutched her by the arm "ye'll say nought about it?" "But you must arrange with the company for a new factor, and, If he Isn't trained" "flurry !" His clutch became convulsive. "Not a word!" he cried fiercely. "Havena I done weel by the company? It won't be the sufferer. If they thocht I was going away they'd not a word, lass! Promise me ! Molly, lass, ye wlnna go back on me now?" "No, I won't go back on you," she answered. But she did not like the idea of stealing away, although the company would suffer little. And then there would be the forfeiture of his pension But she dared not bring up that subject in view of his evident obsession. After a while they began to make preparations. They spoke of the journey as being weeks, instead of months away. Then came a night when the factor tapped at Molly's door. She dressed quickly and went out of her room, to see the whole skyline ablaze. Clouds of smoke were whirling down on them. Suddenly a rig with two horses came dashing across the portage and drew up at the door. Molly recognized Lee Chambers and caught at Hackett's arm "Where are you taking us?" she pleaded. "Won't you let us go back? I'll say nothing if you let us go 111 say nothing!" Hackett grinned at her and tried to put his arm about her. She struck out Mmm Wilton Raised Jules Gently In Hit Arms. toward the safe. Wilton raised the dying man in his arms and supported the shoulders against his knees, so that Jules might see. Jtrtes pointed straight at the safe, Iookjed up, and nodded. Wilton nodded. Jules seemed to lose interest then, but the fingers still twisted, and now they pointed toward the wall behind. Wilton shlf ted his position, and raised the shade of the lamp, to illuminate the other half of the room. The fingers wandered over the tvoodwork, and stepped upon the caricature of Lee Chambers that Jules drawn. Jules Halfhead smiled xp Into Wilton's face and nodded. WUtbn nodded. Then Jules died. V cd CHAPTER XII Kidnaped! Since Bowyer's last visit to the store Molly had been making plans, but, when these were made, she did not dare, to place them before the fiictor. She knew that they could not long remain at the portage. There was his Increasing infirmity; there was Tom Bowyer's enmity his hold over her father, which was bringing him into his grave. Yet she feared one of the factor's wild outbursts of rage If she renewed her suggestion that they should go to Winnipeg. On the other hand, gradually she began to believe that McDonald was forming plans of his own. If that were so, In due time, and in his own way, he would talk to her about them. Meanwhile she watched her father anxiously. He still dragged his leg as he walked, and the fear that was always upon him now had made him an old man within the past year. The girl's love for him, which her humiliation at Bowyer's hands had never entirely "killed, burned up again after she fcafl hroken with Wilton. - But she wondered constantly what over w&s the power that Bowyer had Had McDonald given her 3ier father. sany encouragement she would have gpoken to him, and begged for an understanding that might remove the ,ck)ud which hung over them both. But the factor was more mprpag. than ever. "We've got no time to Chambers. waste. We're going to drive you out of danger. Come along !" "I won't come!" cried Molly. "Don't go with them, father. He's not speaking the truth! Look at his face!" Hackett pushed Chambers out of his way and strode up to the door. "I gness that's true enough, what you said. Miss McDonald," he said. "The fire ain't this side but Will Carruth-er- s is dying. They pulled him out of his shack. He's in a bad way. Mebbe he'll just live till morning. He's calling for you." "Will Will burned!" gasped Molly, looking at him with eyes of horror "It's gospel truth!" cried Chambers. "He can't rest till you go to him." "Then why did you tell us an untruth?"' asked the girl, searching his face as if to read to the bottom of his soul. "Because we wanted to break it gently," shouted Hackett He seized her by the arm. "We haven't no time to waste!" he shouted. "He may die any minute while we're talking here.' "He didn't send you," cried. Molly with sudden conviction. "Why should be have sent ymi? We won't go! You're lying! Let me go!" She pushed her father back into the store and tried to bolt the door In their faces, but they set their shoulders against it and broke through. Molly ran to her room; they were there .almost as soon as she. She She heard McDonald's screamed. feeble shout cut off as Chambers grasped him by the throat. And then she was struggling madly in Hackett's Hackett, and turned and faced them, though her heart was beating with fear. "We've come for you, Miss McDonald," shouted Lee Chambers. "The fire's across the muskeg, and there won't be anything left of this store In twenty minutes. Come along!" He shouted and gesticulated wildly, and seemed hardly master of himself. McDonald started and looked out through the smoke clouds. But as they approached the girl she drew herself away. "It's not true!" she cried. "The lire's on the other side. Why should you come for us?" "I tell you you'll be burned to a cinder inside of fifteen minutes!" yelled The engineer picked four men and they hurried down the road. Andersen and two others remained with Wilton. Hardly had the party left when the mob came streaming out of the toward the office, shouting and yelling. Seeing the four men standing in the doorway, however, they hesitated to rush them, probably In the belief that they were armed, and stood off, cursing them. "Speak up !" shouted Wilton. "What is It you men want?" The shouts died away to a muttering. A spokesman stepped forward. "We want the money in the safe, and we'll have It!" he shouted. "We all know you set the fire because the line's busted, and you've got the safe chock-ful- l of money. You've worked us like dogs all summer, and now you're going to lay us off because the company's busted. You'd better hand It over." Evidently somebody had been telling the men that tale.

They are approximately correct. The greater part of this loss has been sustained by the farmers of this country in land values, agricultural products and live stock values, although a part of this loss has fallen upon every form of property values. Senator Underwood scored the Republicans for making books higher to the people by an increased duty on ink. There is more coal being shipped out of Kentucky than ever before on account of the miners' strike in other States. Tonguay Screamed and Started Away. Tonguay stepped forward out of the crowd. "Come along, boys, he's fooling you !" he yelled. "Smash his head for him! Give them what's coming to them I" But they had a leader; the outlaw arms.

VOTE FOR RAIL STRIKE First Ballots to Be Returned Are Marked Yes. United States Railway Labor Board to Announce Another Wage 8 fish of $40,000,000. Chicago, June 14. The nrstgrt of ballots. to be returned to the yeoferated shop crafts union's headquarter here was hailed as the omen of n rail strike on July 1, as the United States railway labor board prepared to announce another wage reduction, totaling J?40,000,000. Publication of the new slash, it was said, is being held up until a minority report dlssenttnj; from the ruling can be annouHeeJL, The strike ballots which were firs to arrive at the union headquarters electrical came from a Chicago worker. "Yes" was written across the square Inch of the three slips bearing on a separate grievance of the men. The three grievances on which the strike vote is being taken are the $60,000,000 wage cut ordered by the rail board effective July 1, the alleged Illegal contracting of shop work to outside firms and the alleged Illegal reduction of wages, and seren rules changing the conditions on which overtime pay will be given tw the shop crafts employees. All the ballots, it Is expected, will be at the union neadquarters by 3unr; 2o. The work of tabulating them will then be rushed in order that the result may be made public before July 1 the date on which the wage reduction becomes effective. The new wage reduction ordered by the board probably will be made public Thursday and will affect.all remaining classes of railway employees, except the telegraphers and the train service men. The wages of the latter members of the "Big Four" brotherhoods were not before the board for adjustment. More than 3o0,000 employees, including the clerical and station forces, signal department employees and marine department employees, will be hit by the cut. The clerks and station employees will bear the burden of the reduction, as the membership of the two other departments is less than 1G.000, tinder normal business conditions. The reduction, however, is not expected to be as severe as that ordered! for the maintenance of way and shop crafts workers, as the greatest advance in wages under war and postwar conditions was confined to the mechanical departments of the railroads. .
