CVKRAL minutes passed, lu
which tbey took stock of the
VvjJj? situation and inude rapid
strides in learning tlie art of
ticking to wet and slippery ice. The
little man was tlie first to ie:ik.
Gee!" Le said and a minute later:
"If you can dig ia for a moitent and
tlacli i'u the rope I can turn over
Try it.
Smoke made tlie effort, then rested
on tbe rope again. 1 can do it." he
Kaid. "Teil me when you're ready,
and be quick.
"About three feet down is holding
for my heels," Carson said. "It won't
take a moment. Are you ready?"
-Go on'"
It wa.s hard work to slide down n
yard, turn over and sit up. Hut it was
even harder for Smoke to remain flat
tened and maintain a position that
from instai t to instant made a greater
call upon bis muscles. As it w.-is. he
could feel the almost perceptible begin
ning of the slip when the rope tight
ened, and he looked rp into his com
panion's face. Smoke noted the yellow
pallor of sun tan, forsaken by the
Mood, and wondered what his own
complexion, was like. But when he
saw Carson, with shaking fingers,
fumble for his sheath knife he decid
ed tbe end had come. The man was in
a funk and was troing to cut the rope.
"Don't m-miud m-m-me." the little
man chattered. "I ain't scared. It's
only my nerves, gosh dang them. I'll
b-b-be all rigLt in a minute."
And Smoke watched him. doubled
over, hM shoulders ltweeu his knees,
shivering and awkward, holding a
slight tension on the rope with one
hand, while with the ether he hacked j
and gouged holes for his heels iu the ice.
"Carson." he breathed up to him.
"you're some bear, some bear." j
The answering grin was ghastly and'
pathetic "I never could stand height," j
Carson confessed. "It always did get)
me. Do you mind If I stop a minute j
and clear my head? Then I'll make
those heel holes deeper so I can heave
you up."
Smoke's heart warmed. "Look here,
Carson; the thing for you to do is to
cut the rope. You can never get me
up, and there's no use both of us be
ing lost. You can make it out with
your knife."
"You shut up" was the hurt retort
"Wlio's running this?"
And Smoke could not help but see
that anger was a good restorative for
the other's nerves. As for himself, it
was the more nerve racking strain,
lying plastered against the ice with
iiothing to do but strive to stick on.
A groan and a quick cry of "Hold
onf" warned him. With face pressed
against the ice he made a supreme
sticking effort, felt the roje slacken
and knew Carson was slipping toward
him. lie did i.ot dare look up until
he felt the rope tighten and knew the
other had again come to rest.
"Gee, that was a near go'" Carson
chattered. "I came down over a yard.
Now, you wait. I've got to dig new
Holding the few pounds of strai
necessary for Smoke with his left
hand, the little man jabbed ami cuojh
pM at the ice with his right. Ten
minutes of this passed.
"Now, I'll tell you what I've done."
Carson called down. "I've made heel
holds and hand holds for you along
sile of me. I'm going to heave the
rope in slow and easy, and you just
come along sticking and not too fast.
I ll tell you what, first of all. I'll take
you on the rope, and you worry out of
that pack. Get me?"
Smoke nodded, and with infinite care
unbuckled his pack straps. With a
wriggle of tbe shoulders he dislodged
the pack, and Carson saw it slide over
the bulge and out of sight.
"Now, I'm going to ditch mine," be
called down. "You just take It easy
and wait."
Five minutes later the upward strug
gle began. Smoke, aTter dryins his
hands on the insides of his arm sleeves,
clawed Into the climb bellied and
ciung and stuck and plastered sus
tained and helped by the pull cf the
roe- Alone, he could not hare ad
A third of the way up, where the
pitch was steeper and the ice less
eroded, he felt the strain on the rope
decreasing, lie moved slower and
slower. Here was no place to stop and
remain. His most desperate effort
could not prevent the stop, and he
could feel the down slip beginning.
"I'm going," he called up.
"So am I," was the reply, gritted
through Carson's teeth.
"Then cast loose."
Smoke felt the rope tauten in a fu
tile effort; then the pace quickened, and
fce went past his previous lodgment

striving to overcome the downward
To Smoke's surprise, as he went over
the bulge, there was no sheer fall. The
roje restrained him as he slid down a
steeper pitch, which quickly eased un
til he came to a halt in another niche
on the verge of another bulge. Carson
was now out of sight, ensconced In the
place previously occupied by Smoke.
"Gee he could hear Carson shiver.
An Interval of quiet followed, and
then Smoke conld feel the rope agi
tated. "What are yon doing? he called op.
"Making more hand and foot boWs,"
came the trembling answer. "You just
wait I'M have you np here In a Jiffy
Don't mind the way I talk. I'm Just
"You're holding me tty main
strength." Smoke argued. "Soon or
late, with the Ice melting, you'll sl'.p
down after me. The thing for yoa to
do is to cut loose. Hear me! There's
no use both of us going. Get that?
You're the biggest little man in crea
tion, but you've done your best. You
cut loose!"
"You shut up! I'm going to make
holes this time deep enough to haul up
a span of horses."
Several silent minutes passed. Smoke
?ou!d hear the metallic trike and hack
of the knife, and occasionally driblets
of lie slid over tlie bulge and came
down to him. Thirsty, clinging on
hand and foot, he caught the frag
ments in bis mouth and melted them
to water, which he swallowed.
He beard a grasp that slid Into a
groan of despair and felt a slackening
of the rope that made him claw. Im
mediately the rope tightened again.
Straining his 'eyes In an upward look
along the steep slope, he stared a mo
ment, then saw the knife, point first,
slide over the verge of the bulge and
down upon him. He tucked his cheek
to it, shrank from the pang of cut
fiesli. tucked more tightly and felt the
knife come to rest.
"I'm a slob'" came tbe wail down
the crevasse.
"Cheer up, I've got It! Smoke an
swered. "Stay! Wait! I've got a lot of
string in my pocket. I'll drop it down
to you. and you send the knife up."
Smoke made no reply. He was bat
tling with a sudden rush of thought.
"Hey, you! Here comes tbe string.
Tell me when you've got it."
A small pocketkuife weighted on
the string slid down the ice. Smoke
got It. opened the larger blade by a
quick effort of his teeth and one hand
and made sure that the blade was
sharp. Then he tied the sheath knife
to the end of the string.
"Haul away!" he called.
With strained eyes he saw tbe up
ward progress of the knife. But he
saw more a Iit?e man. afraid and in
domitable, who shivered and chattered,
whose head swam with giddiness and
who mastered his qualms and distress
es and p!aye? a hero's part. Here was
a proper nieat cater, eager with friend
liness, generous to destruction, with a
grit that shaking fear could not shake
Then. too. he considered the situa
tion cold bloodedly. There was no
chance for two. Steadily they were
sliding into the heart of the glacier,
and it was bis greater weight that
was dragging the little man down.
The little man could stick like a fly.
Alone, he could save himself.
T.ully for us!" came the voice from
above, down and across the bridge of
Ice. Now we'll get out of here In two
- The awful struggle for good cheer
and hope In Carson's Toice decided
"Listen to me," he said steadily,
vainly striving tt shake the vision of
Joy Gastell's face from his brain. "I
sent that knife up for you to get out
with. Get that? I'm going to chop
loose with the jackknife. It's one or
both of us. Get that?"
"Wait! For God's sake, wait!" Car
son screamed down. "You can't do
that! Give me a chance to jtet you
out. Be ca 1 in. old horse. We'll make
the tarn. You'll see, I'm going to dig
holes that'll lift a bouse and barn."
Smoke made no reply. Slowly and
gently, fascinated by tbe sight, he
cut with the knife until one of the
thrw strands popped and parted.
"What are you doing? Carson cried
desperately. "If you cut I'll never
forgive you never. I tell you it's two
or nothing. We're going to get out
Wait! For God's sake!"
And Smoke, staring at the parted
strand, five Inches before his eyes,
knew fear iu all its weakness. He
did not want to die. He recoiled from
the shimmering abyss beneath him.
and his panic brain urged all the pre
posterous optimism of delay. It was
fear that prompted him to compro
mise. "All rieht." he called up. "I'll wait
D your best But I tell you. Carson,
if e both start slipping again I'm go
ing to cut"
"rinh! Forget it When we start,
old horse, we start up. I'm a porous
plaster. I eomld stick here if it was
twice as steep. I'm getting a sizable
hole for one heel already. Now. you
hnn. and let me work."
A gasp and a groan and an abrupt
slackening of the rope warned him.
He began to slip. 'I he movement was
very slow. The rope tightened loyal
ly, but ht continued to slip. Carson
could not hold him and was slipping
with him. The digging toe of his far
ther extended foot encountered vacan
cy, ami he knew that it wa.s over the
straightaway fall. And he knew, too,
that in another moment his falling
body would jerk Carson's after it
Blindly, desperately, all the vitality
and life love of him beaten down in a
flashing instant by a shuddering per
ception of right and wrong, he brought
the knife edge across the rope, saw the
strands part, felt himself slide more
rapidly and then fall.
What happened then he did not
know. He was net unconscious, but it
happened too quickly, and it was unex
pected. Instead of falling to his death
his feet almost immediately struck in
water, and he sat violently down in
water that splashed coolingly on his

sheer down a distance of a dozen feet
This had hollowed out the basin.
Where he sat the water was two feet
deep, and it was flush with the rim.
He pvered over the rim and looked
down the narrow chasm hundreds of
feet to the torrent that foamed along
the bottom.
"Oh. why did you?" he heard a wail
from above.
"Listen!" he called up. "I'm perfect

to my neck. And here's both our
packs. I'm going to sit on them.

or anything that will make rope, and
come back and iish for me."
"Honest?" came Carson's incredu
lous voice.
"Cross my heart and hope to die.
Now, get a hustle on or I'll catch my
death of cold."
Smoke kept himself warm by kick
ing a chauuel through the rim with
the heel of his shoe. By the time he
had drained off the last of the water a
call from Carson announced that be
had reached the top.
After that Smoke occupied himself
with drying his clothes. The late aft
ernoon sun beat warmly iu upon him,
and he wrung out his garments and
spread them about him.
Two hours hiter, erched naked on
tbe two packs he beard a voice above
that he could not fail to identity.
"Oh, -Smoke! Smoke."
"Hello. Joy Gastell."' Le trailed back.
"Where'd you drop froraV"
"Are you hun?"
"Not even any skin off."
"Father s paying the rope down now.
Do you see it?"
"Yes. and I've got it." he answered.
"Now, wait a couple of minutes,
"What's the matter?" came her anx
ious query after several minutes. "Oh.
I know you're hurt."
"No. I'm not I'm dressing."
"Yes. I've been in swimming. Now:
Ready? Hoist away!"
He sent up the two packs on the first
trip, was subsequently rebuked by Joy
Gastell and on tbe second trip came
up himself. '
Joy Gastell looked at him with glow
ing eyes whi'.e her father and Carson
were busy coiling the rope. "How
could you cut loose in that splendid
way?" she cried. "It was it was glo
rious, that's alL"
Smoke waved the compliment away
with a deprecatory hand.
"I know all about it," she persisted
"Carson tcld me. You sacrificed your
self to save me."
"Nothing of the sort." Smoke lied.
"I could see that swimming pool right
under me all the time."

heavy business, averaging about 100
cars per day each way. Last Friday

water supply in the state; they have
a fall of some thirty feet from the
spring to the water tank. They in
tend putting a reservoir on the top
of the hill south of the shops, one

The Plattsmouth literary appeared
in force Friday evening. Hon. Joseph
A. Connor led one side and Hon. W.
L. Wells the other, and the question
was that old one, whether Napoleon
ought to have been an angel or not.
That wasn't just the way they put it,
but then it meant the same. Brother
Frye was the hero of the evening, and
"Gad" the slaughterman of the Lin
coln Journal who was present was so
tickled that he proposed to get up a
petition to congress to have the whole
society transferred to Washington to
take the place of the senate next ses
sion. He thinks they are better
'argufyers.' The question next week
is, Resolved, that a fellow generally
walks straight because he is afraid of
gettink hurt, and not because he likes
it. The leaders are Mr. Thos. Wiles
and Mr. Wayraan, and the lyceum
goers may expect to hear a good de
bate. i

The debating club of lyceum of
Factoryville is at the present time in
a very flourishing state; while the
community at large takes much in
terest in this institution, the more
prominent actors display more than
common talent and ability in spo3ch
and judgment.
Some of those who know, say thai
the Weeping Water Valley Old
Bathelors' society has more members
enrolled than any like institution in
the state, singular as this may p
pear, a fact it is, that marriageable
young ladies, including young widow .s
can have their choice out of nearly a
hundred. How is that for high?
With the approach of spring our
farmers are making preparations for
putting in crops. It is thought, how
ever, the area for small grain will be
a small one, as those myriads of un-
hatched grasshoppers are causin
much anxiety and fear among our soil
tillers. Well, time will show how
large the grasshopper crop will be.
Great flocks of prairie chickens are
inhabiting the cornfields along the
banks of the Weeping Water, but it i
feared that a great part of the coming
young brood will be destroyed by the
prairie fires in the spring.
Lovers of wild and romantic music

Mr. A. has gloomy forebodings about
the hopper crcp in the spring. Mr.
Sol Beardsley, however, comes to a
different conclusion. He has exam
ined a good many eggs, too, and finds
many already hatched out or have
had life and then died. In many shells
the form of the grasshopper can be
distinctly seen. Others he found ad
dled, and altogether he doesnt feel so
much afraid of the grasshoppers as
he used to.
