She bud always liked Nash, but she
resented him now. especially as lie in

to make report, she was not very gra
cious in her manner. "He's pretty bad
ly hurt." he said. "There's an ugly
gash in his scalp, nnd the shock has
produced a good deal of pain and con
fusion in his head, but he's going to be
all right in a day or two. For a man
seeking rest and recuperation he cer
tainly has had a rough run of weath
er." Through a serious minded, honorable
forester, deterinfued to keep sternly in
mind that he was in the presence of
the daughter of his chief, and that she
was engaged to marry another. Nirsb
was. alter all. a man. and the witchery
of the hour, the charm of the girl's
graceful tip nre. asserted their power
over him. His eyes grew tender, and
his voice eloquent in spite of himself
Ills words he could guard, but it was i
hard to keep from his speech the song
of the lover. The thought that he was
to camp in her company, to help her
about the tire, to see her from moment
to moment, with lu'l liberty to speau (
to her. to meet her glance, pleased him. ,
It was the most romantic and moving j
episode in his life, and though of a I
rather dry nnd analytic temperament I
he had a sense of poesy.
The night, black, oppressive and si
lent, brought a closer bond of mutual
help and understanding between them
She grew friendlier and asked him
about his work and especially about
his ambitions and plans for the future.
They discussed the forest and its en
emies. and he wondered at tier free

other way of robbing those poor tie

you penfiiade him to do so?"
"1 don't think I can."
"His relationship to you"
"H is not related to me."
Hr tone amazed him. "You kno
wh;it I mean."
"'if course I do, but you're mistaken.
We're not related that way any longer."
This silenced him for a few in
unts. then he said: "I'm ruther giad

AH this comment, which moved the
loie.ster so deeply to utter, seemed not
to interest Uerea. She sat staring at
the tire with the calm brow of an In
tiian. Clifford Delden had passed out
of her life as completely as he had
vauished out of the landscape. She
felt an immense relief at being rid of
him and resented his being brought
back eveu as a subject of conversation
Wayland. listening, fancied he under
stood her desire and said nothing that
miuht arouse Nush's curiosity.
Nash on his part, knowing that she
had broken, with Helden. began to tin
derstand the tenderness, the anxious
care of her face and voice, as she bent
above young Norcross. As the night
deepened and the cold air stung, he
asked. "Have you plenty of blankets
for a bed?"
"Oh. yes." she answered, "but I don't
intend to sleep."
"Oh. you must!" he declared. "Go
to bed. 1 will keep the, tire going."
At last she consented. "1 will make
my bed right here at the mouth of the
tent close to the fire." she said, "and
you can call me if you need me."
"Why not put your bed in the tent?
It's going to be cold up here."
"1 am all right outside." she pro
tested. "Put your bed inside. Miss Berrie.

Her camion was all for him. Sht
tried each dangerous slough first and
thus was able to jidvie him which
way was safest. His head throbbed
with pain and his kuees were weary,
but he rode on.
At last they came into open ground
oti a high ride and were gladdened by
the valley outspread below them, for
it was still radiant with color, though
not as brilliant as before the rain.
At 1 o'clock on the bank of a clear
stream the girl halted. "I reckon we'd
letter camp awhile. You look tired,
and 1 am hungry."
She unsaddled one pack animal and
spread some blankets on the grass

hide her face, and he went on: "Why
do you care for me? Tell me:"

serious and medical assistance was
summoned, and the injured face
dressed, but fortunately the kick did
not result in the breaking: of any
bones and the younpr man will be him
