The Murder of Craig.

zLj in the store the day before, and

wrapped up the few yards of calico she?
h:id bought she had chided hinffor not

overwork as the reason he had not
visited them, so she had reminded him
that Sunday was a jrood day for town
peopln to come to the country and end
ed ly inviting him to dinner the next
d::y. She had not told Mary of this
at once, for she feared her daughter's
Mary was not informed of the an
ti -Hinted visit till the next morning at
breakfast. She was an oledient girl
cud said nothing, though her lips were
Ir;:wu firmly and there was a cold
gleam in her eyes. When the merchant
arrived he and she attended service at
the little meeting house half n mile
down the mnlu road, and "when they
returned they found that dinner was
ready. Abuer Daniel 'was seated with
her father on the porch, and Abuer
rose to shake hands "with Tarp as the
couple came up the steps.
After dinner Tarp asked Mary to
take a ride with him in his buggy, and,
fearing her mother's displeasure, she
accepted. They drove along a delight
fully shaded mountain road. Mary
had noted her companion's peculiar
"There is no use beating the devil
about the bush. Miss Mary," he began
when he had reseated himself by her
sidj and taken up the reins. "I've got
to get a wife, and yoa are the sort of
a girl I like."
Mary was fairly pale. She was si
lent for a moment, then faltered:
"The trouble is that I really do not
feci as you do. I look at marriage dif
ferently. I must love the the man 1
marry. If I should marry. I admire
you. but yon must never mention this
subject to me again."
"Well, you know best," the merchant
slowly answered. "I must now give
my attention to Miss Bessie Williams,
my new milliner, whom you have met.
I should rather have you. but your at
titude compels me to leave the matter
I?sp:te the strong efforts made by
Aimer Uanlel and Pole F.aker to pre
vent a meeting between Howard Tins
ley and Fred Craig, the thing came
about sooner than expected. One
mbrmn'rr as Howard was entering the
postofiice he encountered Craig coming
out. As usual, the farmer was flushed
w:th drink. His eyes flashed with
fury ?s they met those of the younger
man. and he grunted in contempt.
Stepping up to him. noward demanded
He Drew Back His Right Hand to
an a polony. With an oath Craig re
fused. Instead, he drew back his right
bund to strike. Howard caught it,
twisted it sharply downward and hit
him on the cheek. For an instant they
stood apart, then rushed together, and
several powerful blows were given and
taken before the town marshal and
deputy reached the scene and, aided by
the bjstnnders, separated the two by
sheer force. Craig was struggling wild
ly and was wiping tue blood irom a
gashed lip. trying to draw his revolver
from his hip pocket and growling like
an infuriated brute. Frank Iteytaond among Howard's friends who
seized him and led him toward his
loom in the hotel that he might wash
his bruised face and arrange his dress,
his shirt and necktie being torn.
'You must have common sense and
rot fisht.. ndranken fool like that."
Frank said soothingly.
Howard drew back on the edge of
the lnivcuVertL "Common sense!" be
panted, betide himself wHh rae as
The curious crowd gathered and press
ed cloie about them. "There is only
one sort of common sense I'll have, and
that is this. Listen, all of you. I'll
kill that puppy as sure as God let's
me get at him. - Walt and see if 1
flon't You may pull us apart novr.
but I cm not through with hint."
"Don't listen to him," Frank said to
the crowd. "He's mad and excited.
He doesn't mean that.4
"Mean It'. You don't know me,"
Howard cried. "The world is not big
enough for us both. I'll settle him. I
swear I will. I'll kill him like a dog.
Some of you heard -what he called me.
If you think I'll take it you are no
friends of mine."
At this moment Abner Daniel pushed
his way through the throng to How
ard's side. "Come up to your room
and get your clothes straight," he said,
his face pale with excitement and sym
pathy. "We've got some important
work to do at the office."
'I've got Important work to do out
side of the office," Howard fumed, but
he allowed his old friend to lead him
by the arm up to his room, where he
left him.
At the door of the office Abuer found
Pole Baker waiting for him. Pole had
beard the news, and Abuer had never
seen him look so grave.
"Meddling folks have been totin tales
N twixt the two," he remarked. "I got
onto several nasty squibs, floating
alout- Thar are men who had rather
keep bad blood stirred up than make a
fortune in money, and a good many are
jealous of Howard's rise. This has
Just begun. Uncle Ab; nothin but gun
shots will satisfy them two. I can't
blame Howard, fer the boy simply was
born with a pride and a temper that
nothin' kin check in a mess like this."
"Howard said too much before that
crowd just now," Abner answered. "If
if he did happen to harm that skunk
he'd have a hard case in court to fight,
after the positive way he spoke before
so many witnesses. What's to be done
I don't know, I'm sure. We can't put
the boy under restraint, fer he is his
cwn boss free, white, an' twenty-one.
They say Craig used an awful word
to im; but the courts won't be influ
enced by that If anything deliberate
Is done, an' ef they meet again it would
be after deliberation."
Half an hour after the fight Howard
visited Higgins, the gunsmith, and ask
ed if his revolver were fixed.
"Yes, it is ready, Howard, but"
The old man hesitated. "The truth is,
Howard, that I don't want to return
it to you just now."
"Give it to me!" Howard demanded
sharply. "It's my proierty,rand I will
have it.
"Pardon me for being rough, Mr.
Higgins," he said sharply, "but Craig
Is armed, and I've got to be also.'
With the weapon In his pocket. How
ard left the shop and went down to the
office. Abner, unable to work through
sheer worry, was waiting for him.
"There is a thing you mustn't for
get," Abner remarked,. with the inten
tion of taking his young friend's mind
from the dangerous theme, "and that
is you hare an engagement to call on
Mary this evening. I heard you make
it, you know, and I told her I would
fetch you back with me in my busgy
and make you take supper there. You
could spend the night at her house or
walk back to town afterward, just as
you see fit."
"I will walk back," Howard answer
ed. "I like to get to work early. I
hadn't forgotten my engagement."
From a jassing farmer Tobias Trum
bley had heard of the encounter. He
had brought the news home before
sundown, and Mary was quite upset,
thoujrh she endeavored to conceal her
emotions from the family. ,
After supper Abner and the others
left the young couple under the tree
in the moonlight. Nothing had been
sail at the table on the all imiortant
subject, and it looked as if Mary scarce
ly dared to touch on it. However, as
he was rising to leave she ventured to
sieak of it
"I'm awfully sorry and worried," she
faltered, "and not alone for myself, as
your best friend, Howard, but for your
mother. When she hears of this, as
she is sure to do, it will almost break
her heart. She heard about the dispute
you had with Craig not long ago, and
she, along with many of us, has been
dreading the outcome."
!Ioward smiled in a forced sort of a
way. He had taken Mary's hand and
he now stroked it soothingly. "I can't
talk to a girl about a thing of this na
ture. Mary," he said gently. "You
women do not understand."
"We understand a great deal more
than you give us credit for." Mary
gave him her eyes steadily. "We un
derstand those of us who read and

defending your honor and the like is
simply a relic of ancient barbarism.
There is no doubt about It A bad
man, habitually insane from whisky
drinking. In his stuior Insults a high
tempered moral man in his right senses.
Now, one Intellectually is full grown,
and the other is a child. Ancient bar
barism whispers to the sober man that
he must resent what the other the
child has said, so he arms himself and
stands ready to, shoot the child on
sight But that is not all. Howard, I
am sorry to speak so pointedly, but I
know that I am right, even if it hurts
your feelings. The whole thing is ab
solute selfishness at the bottom of
It JTou would not say a word that
would iain your mother, but under this
mistaken idea of what your rights are
you would torture her and others who
love you more than If you beat them
with a club. Howard, we are here to
conquer flesh. I admire you very much,
but I'd admire you more if you could
crush out the rage in your heart to
night You are on the brink of a preci
pice. One step and your whole life
may be ruined."
"You are right, I suppose," Howard
faltered. "I -wish t could e as you
are. but I cm not Men eari't be like
women. We are closer to the' primi- f
tive fighting period. You are the nat
ural peacemakers."
"Won't you promise me. noward."
Mary urged as she took his hand and
dung to it "won't you promise me not
to you know what I mean, Howard
not to meet Craig?"
Howard pressed her hand. He smiled
gently. "Don't bother," he said. "I
may not see Craig again for a long
time. I won't look him up. I prom
ise that I won't put myself in his
way, so don't worry any more."
Leaving her mute and slUI at the
gate, Howard walked toward the town
in the clear moonlight Something iu
Mary's talk had lifted him higher than
he had ever been lifted before. He
was beginning to realize what she had
been and was to him.
Ahead of him, outlined in the moon
light, was the roof of Craig's farm
house. The house was unlighted.
Craig lived there alone, attended by a
negro woman who occupied a cabin
some distance in the rear. Howard
paused at the gate. What better op
portunity to demand satisfaction could
he have? Craig was in the house
doubtlessly asleep. Why not rap on
the door, call him out and demand an
apology? But he had promised Mary i
that he would not intentionally meet
the man. and he must keep his word.
He heard a step down the road. Some
one approached and passed on the oth
er side. It was a man carrying a plow
stock on his shoulder. In the dark
ness Howard did not recognize him.
For a few moments he stood in sharp
struggle with himself, through which
Mary's face, eyes and words were with
A rugged hill, deeply wooded, rose in
the moonlight near by. He had read!

spiritual stress, and it seemed to beckon '
to him. Suddenly and by sheer strength ;
of resolution he turned sharply awayj
and, plunging into the wood, began the
ascent of the steep hillside. Higher and
higher he climbed among the stately!
pines, plunging through retarding vines,
thorn bushes and briers, till the valley!
in which the village nestled lay before'
him. Only here and there lights show-1
ed, for the hour was late. The night1
was oppressively warm. A vast sense!
of dissatisfaction and unrest lay on:
him like a weight. Throwing himself;
down on a heap of sweet scented pine
needles, Howard gave himself up to
keen, even "morbid, introspection. Nev-!
er had he felt so discontented. Onoj
moment he would be filled with rage
at Ihe memory of Craig's bloated face;
and snarling insults, and the next
Mary's suffering appeal would sweep,
over him like a cooling breeze from;
infinity itself. Presently he grew calm-!
er, and a drowsy fecliug stole upon!
him. As he was drifting into uncon-j
sciousness the thought -came to him;
that he might as well spend the re-j
mainder of the night there as in his
stuffy room at the hotel, and so he al-j
lowed himself to sleep. !
He had many turbulent dreams. One
thit seemed to stand out more vividly
than the others was this: lie fancied
he heard a horse trotting along the
road from Darley to Craig's house. It
seemed to be Craig returning home.
lie thought he heard Craig call out at,
the gate in a drunken tone to some
one. A surly voice seemed to respond.!
and then there was a sound like t lie i
sharp slamining of a door or. the re-j
port Ui U ;uu. i; i' """1' j
the beating hoofs of a riderless horse,
as it galloped off down the road.
With a broom in his hand Sutrart
was sweeping out the office the next
morning, and as Howard suddenly ap
peared before him he shrank back as if
alarmed. Indeed, he turned pale and
leaned on the counter, dropping his
bioom to the floor and awkwardly
bending down to recover it.
"What is the matter?" Howard ask
ed, with a smile. "Do I look as tough
as all that?"
"Why why" Sugcrt stammered as
he continued to stare open eyed "1
thought we , all thought that you
Some said you'd left on the midnight
"Left? Where to?" Howard asked,
his astonishment growing.
"I don't know." Sugart was still
pale and wore the disturbed air of i
man unable to meet a delicate situa
tion. "But the report is out that the
sheriff said you'd left. Him and the
town marshal was down here together
when I got up half an hour ago. They
they asked me if you slept here last
night, and when I went up and looked
to satisfy them and found that your
bed hadn't been used and told them so
they said you must have taken a train
hereat midnight, or gonethroughthc
woods and inounfains to get to the oth
er road."
Howard's indignation was rising.
"Did they think that I would actually
leave the country?" he demanded. "Is
there a man in this town fool enough
to think that I would do all that to
avoid meeting Fred Craig? I refuse to
ltelieve it. Tom, I'm not a coward.
I've never been accused of it"
"I don't know anything about it."
Sugart was still quite bewildered, and
in angry impatience Howard ascended
the stairs to his room. Entering it. he
was about to bathe his face and hands
when a colored chambermaid suddenly
entered, and, seeing him in the light
from the window, she uttered a sharp
scream and beat a hasty retreat down
the corridor. What could it all m?an;
he asked himself as he changed his
clothing. Surely they were acting
Going down to breakfast at the first
sound of the gong, he was met by oth
er surprises. He saw Mrs. Langham
in agitated conversation with Sugart
at the dining-room door. Seeing him
face to face, she started, bowed has
tily and turned away as if anxious to
avoid him. At the table, as he sat
waiting for his breakfast to tx? brought,
he noticed that the three wr'.ters. with
their heads together on one side of the
room, seemed to be deliberating as to
which should take his order, and when
finally one of them came he seemed to
act more stiffly and awkwardly than
was a waiter's habit. And when the
food was being brought in Howard no
ticed that the cook and a couple of dish
washers were peering in at him curi
ously, but on catching his eyes they at
once disappeared.
Further perpiexities were before him.
for when he had eaten his breakfast
and was going out he saw Abuer Dan
iel talking to Sugart in the office.
There was no mistaking the fact that
Abner was disturbed. Howard had
never seen such a woebegone expres
sion on the cheerful old countenance
as his friend turned upon him.
"I beard you'd come back, an'
thought I'd stop by to see you." Ab
ner's voice shook. "Of course, at a
time like this"
"At a time like what:" noward ask
ed, fixing Abner with an impatient
"Why, why, you see" Abner jcgan.
but he went no further, for several
drummers, leaving the dining room,
had gathered around and were gazing
boldly and curiously at Howard. "Let's
go down to the office," Abner suggest
ed, laying his hand on his friend's arm.
"Our talk must be more private. I
don't know how much time we've got
either, and the sooner we understand
what is best to do the better it will be.
Time is valuable."
"You seem to be crazy like all the
rest," Howard said impatiently as thoy
went out into the street and started
down to the office. Just then they saw
Pole Baker on horseback, and he rein
ed in at the sidewalk.
"I had started down to see you." Un
cle Ab," he said grimly. "I didn't
know Howard was here. So many
false reports are in the wind hun
dreds of lies mixed up wfth it I'll
put up my boss an' come down. Y'ou
kin both count on me. What's done is
done, and thar ain't no use cryin" over
spilt milk. We got to git to work an'
face the thing."
"Another fool!" Howard said an
grily. "For God's sake, what is the
matter with you all?"
Abner was in such deep thought that
he failed to hear what Howard had
said. However, when they had reach
ed the office and found themselves
alone Howard demanded, fiercely:
"Tell me what is the matter? Why
are you all acting this way?"
Abner bent a startled gaze on him.
Without a wordhe stared steadily for
a moment, then he faltered: "We must
understand each other. Howard. Do
you intend to to deny all knowledge
of it? Have you reflected and decided
to to take that course?''
"Good God, what is the matter with
you?" Howard repeated. "Come to
the point I'm tired of all this blasted
tomfoolery. Y'ou all act as if I were
a wild boast escaped from a cage."
For another moment Abner continued
to stare, then he suddenly took a deep
breath, and his eyes lighted up as from
faint hope.
"Howard, my boy. didn't you know
that Fred Craig w-as shot and ki'led
on his boss at bis own grrte last
"Killed shot?" Howard gasped.
Daniel laid his hand on Howard's
shoulder. He bore down on it affec
tionately and hopefully. "Look me in
the eyes, my loy," he said, with emo
tion, his lips quivering. "I know you
won't keep back anything from me.
and the truth is important. Did you
do it? Forgive me, but so many things
point that way."
