Donne Marshall hud made a good
linpros-dnn upon "Elvn Waters, or fan
cied he hnd. He was doubly anxious
to win the good graces of her father,
the Hon. Rupert Watery, Judge, ox
mayor and present owner of the Dally
Gazette. Rushton vis n lively, up-to-date
.little city nnd boasted two dully
newspapers, hot rivals, lighting each
other every Inch of the way and keoi-
Ing things locally nt fever heat.
Bllnn Dunvers wns the star reporter
on the Field and once ln a while called
upon Klvn, which Deune deemed an
Invasion of home territory. Dnnvers
was u dyed-in-the-wool Journalist,
while Deune was a mero novice.- The
latter was striving hard to hold his
position on the Gazette and win n bet
ter one, for that meant the good will
of the Judge and penunnent position
near to Elva. The policy of Dunvers
was obstructive. He did all ho could
to keep Donne from scoring a scoop
or getting even his honest shore of the
news. This was exemplified ono day
when both young reporters stood on
tho platform of a Junction. A politi
cian of national fame was to reach
there at 0 a. m wait eight minutes
for n connection nnd go on his way.
Both reporters wero to get a brief In
terview within that precious four hun
dred nnd eighty seconds time. The
Field cared Httlo for the Item, us the
politician was of n party antagonistic
to Its principles. For the Gazette It
would bo quite a feature.
In his usual fresh way, and knowing
the ropes and full of assurance,. Dnn
vers got the car of the politician llrst.
Persistently ho held his pfcw.'e by thu
side of the annoyed functionary, simply
wasting the time to keep Deane from
getting ln a word edgewise. So net
tled was Deane that us the next train
pulled in he jumped aboard, deter
mined If It took all day he would se
cure that coveted Interview. At first
the politician resented further Infringe
ment on his time, but Deane felt that
he was making the play of his life.
"Mr. Ashton," he suld, "my future as
u reporter and possibly my life's hap
piness depeud upon your Indulgence.
I am going to appeal to the sentimen
tal side of your brood human nature."
"You Interest me," acknowledged
the politician, and Deano told his
whole story. The politician smiled,
spread himself, and, although It took
eight hours to make connections,
Deano got bock to Rushton at dusk,
chuckling over a two-column Interview
that was worthy of big headlines and
"Of course 1 don't know what I have
lost of the usual local grist, but I can
soon catch up with that," ruminated
Deane and Htarted for the central po
lice olllce to llnd lt deserted.
"Why, whore's tho crowd 1" he In
quired of the night clerk.
"All off on the Fidelity bonk case."
"The whatl" faltered Deane, with a
"Where you been asleep? All the
force and three extras on the Field
are working up the biggest bank rob
bery that ever happened in Rushton.
It was Just at dark. A masked man
overpowered the watchman at the
Fidelity, grabbed a satchel with over
one hundred thousand dollars in lt
and made off. The watchman Is sure
that he winged him as he put down the
alley, but money and man haven't left
Deano reached the bank to llnd a
crowd gathered there, but that was not
the present center of Interest. Tho
emissaries of the law were scouring
the district In every direction. Don
vers and his extras, provided with au
tomobiles, were following down clues.
Deane got the primary facts of the
case and rather dlsheartenedly paced
down the alley. Turning toward the
main street, as he passed an old un
used barn he paused. A groan, quick,
spasmodic, caught his hearing. He en
tered the lower dismantled story. He
Hushed bis electric torch about. Some
thing glistened whero a broken lad
der ran up n sidewalk.
"Blood 1" muttered Dcnno, and as
cended. Then again he Hashed the
light. There, lying face up and stiff
upon the hay, was a man, u gaping
wound In his throat. At his side wan
n satcliel. At a glance Deane took ln
the situation here wus tho thief and
his booty I
Tho liiuu, wounded, had crawled
here hours "since. He had Just died.
Any sentiment of help wus useless.
Deano became tho astute reporter in
tho presenco of a tremendous scoop,
lie thought quickly. He examined
sntchel and clothing. He took a flash
light of mon and environment. He
covered up tho body with the buy, he
took the satchel witli him to the oillce
and called up the homo of his chief.
Behind guarded doors those two
worked over the greatest newspaper
triumph evor scored 'n Rushton. The
thrilling story of the young reporter's
gruesome discovery, tho revelation of
tho Identity of tho bank robber, pic
tures, diagrams with the polltlcnl In
terviewhere was such a pago ready
for tho public as Rushton had never
About midnight Deano strolled down
to police headquarters. Danvers was
telling of four columns of clever "theo
ries" tho Field would put out In Its
morning issue. Deano twilled. Then,
as ho went homeward, proud, com
plncent, the smile grow to u grin, nnd
then a chuckle, for ho knew that with
the morning the world would know
that he hud made his calling complete.
