His ar.ger reached the blazing point
after his arrival. As he stopped down
fi"tn the engine cab Gray silently
handed him a code message from Lon
don which had arrived a few moments,
before. "When its contents had been
'' ciphered O'Xcil' cursed, and he was
furi.;:s as he stumbled through the
dark toward the green: bungalow on
the LIU.
Swinging around the corner of the
h use. he rauie into a bright radiance
whi-.-h streaiiK'd forth from Eliza's
window, and he could not help seeing
the inferior of the room. She was
'here, writing busily, and he saw that
she was clad in the elaborate kimono
v Li' h he had given her. Yet it was
;;-.t her personal appearance which ar
rested his anry eyes and caused 'lite
s:op to halt: it was, instead, her sur
roundings. He had grown to accept her prim
simplicity as a matter of course and
never associated her in his thoughts
with anything feminine, but the room
sis it lay before him now was a revela
tion of daintiness and artful decora
tion. Tasteful water colors hung on
the Avails, a warm rug was on the floor,
and everywhere were rosy touches of
color. The plain white bed had been
transformed into a couch of oriental
luxury. A lace spread of webiike
texture covered it: then pillows were
hidden beneath billowing masses of
ruffles and ribbons. lie saw a typical
woman's crazy corner piled high with
cushions. There was a jar of burning
in. ense sticks near it everything, in
fact, was utterly at variance with his
notions of the owner, liven the girl
herself seemed transfigured, for her
J. air was brought forward around her
fa -e in some loose, mysterious fashion,
which gave her a bewilderingly girlish
O'Neil's eyes photographed nil this in
a single surprised glance as he passed.
The next moment he was mounting
the steps to the porch.
Ian flung open the door, but his
words of greeting froze. His smile of
wel'-ome vanished at sight of his
chiefs forbidding a isage
Murray was in no ruood to waste
words, no began roughly:
I:d you tell Miss Gerard that Poult

I ;;n stammered. "I perhaps I
"What has gone wrong, chief':"
-Jid you tell her the inside the sto

boat people?"
Ian paled beneath his tan, but his
f-yes met Murray's without flinching.
"I think I did tell her something. I
don't quite remember. Hut anything
I may have caul was in conn"
I thought so. I merely wished to
make certain. Well, the whole thing
is in the papers."
Appleton laid his hand upon the ta
ble to steady himself.
"Then it didn't come from her. She
-Gordon has spread the story broad
cast. It couldn't have come from any
other source. It couldn't have reached
him in any other way, for none of my
boys has breathed a word." His voice
rose despite his effort at self control.
1 His" agreement was illegal," he said
savagely. ""It vill probably forfeit the
i hal ter of the North Pass or land him
in court. I suppose you realize that! I
discovered his secret nnd assured him
it was safe with me. Now you peddle
i: to Gordon, and the whele thing is
p iMic. Here's the first result." He
shook the London cablegram in Dan's
la e. and his own was distorted with
i aire. There was a stir in Eliza's room
which neither noticed. Appleton wiped
his face with uncertain hand. He
moistened his lips to say:
"1 I'm terribly sorry. "But I'm sure
Natalie wouldn't spy. I don't remem
ber what I told her or how I came to
know about the affair. Doc Gray told
jiie. I think, in the first excitement, she wouldn't knowingly"
Gordo:: tired you for talking too
much. I tLought you had learned your

1 ! line Miss Gerard for pumping you
her loyalty belongs to Gordon now.
I '.iit I require loyalty too. Since you
la k it you can go.
n .Veil turned as Eliza's door open
ed siie stood before him. pale, fright
e:.fil. trembling.
"I couldn't help bearing," she said.
"You discharge us?"
Hrpr A. Brothers.
He nodded. "I'm sorry! I've trusted
iny 'boys' so implicitly that the thought
of betrayal by them never occurred to
me. I can't have men close to me
who make such mistakes as this."
"Perhaps there was an excuse or the
shadow of one, at least. When a man
is in love, you know"
Murray wheeled upon Dan and de
manded sharply:
"What's this?" Then in a noticea
bly altered tone he asked, "Do you love
"Does she love you?"
"Xo, sir."
O'Neil turned back to the girl, say
ing: "I told Dan when I hired him
that he would be called upon to dare
much, to suffer much and that my in
terests must be his. He has disregard-
! ed them and he must go. That's all.
i There's little difference betw-en treach
ery and carelessness."
He left them standing there unhap
pily dumb and stiff with shame. Once
outside the houw he plunged down the
hi'l as if fleeing from the scene of some
crime. He rushed through the night
blindly, for he had loved his assistant
engineer, and the memory of that
chalk faced, startled girl hurt him
"To think that I spent the best part
of two years studying this spot!" he
told Gray as they started for the office.
"I fired Appleton." he broke out at
last. Gray looked up quickly. "He
acknowledged that he did it. I had
no choice. It came hard, though."
"He did some great work, '-kief!"
"I know. That affair at the Cross
ing I intend to pay him well if he'll
accept. It's not that. I like those
kids, Stanley. Eliza took it harder
than he. It wasn't easy for me ei
ther," he sighed wearily. "I'd give
$1"W0 if it hadn't hapioned. She
looked as if I'd struck her."
"What did they say?"
"Nothing. He has been careless, dis
loyal" "You told them so?"
O'Neil nodded.
"And they said nothing?"
"Nothing. What could they say?"
Gray answered gruffly: "They might
have said a good deal. They might
have told you how they paid off your
men and saved a walkout when I had
no money."
O'Ncil stared incredulously. "What j
are you talking about?" he demanded.
When he had the facts he rose with
an exclamation of dismay.
"Heavens! Why didn't you tell me?
Why didn't they speak out? I I
"To think I spent the best part of two
years studying this spot!"
why, that's loyalty of the finest kind.
All the money they had saved, too,
when they thought I had failed! Jove,
that was flue! Oh, I'm sorry! I won
der what they think of me? I can't let
Dan go after that. I" lie seized his
cap and hurried out of the building.
"It's hardly right when things were
going po well, too," said Dan. He was
sitting crumpled up in a chair. Eliza's
arm encircling his shoulders. "I didn't
mean to give up any secrets, hat I'm
not myself when I'm with Natalie."
"We must take our medicine," his
sister toldhimgrave!7. "We deserve
it, for this story may spoil all he's
done. I didn't think it of her. though."
Dan groaned and bowed his head in
his hands. "I don't know which hurts
worse," he said, "his anger or her ac
tion. She couldn't do such a thing,
sis; she just couldn't!"
"She probably didn't realize. She
hasn't much sense, you know. But,
after all he's suffered, to think that we
should injure Lim! I could cry."
The door opened before a rough
hand, and O'Neil strode into the room,
huee, shaggy in his cooiiskin coat.
They rose, startled, but he came to
them swiftly, a look of mingled shame
and gladness in his face.
"I've come back to apologize!" be
cried. "I couldn't wait. I've learned
what you children did wLile I was
gone, and I've come to leg forgive
ness. It's all right it's all right."
"I don't know what you mean!" Dan
"Doe told me how you paid those
men. That was real friendship: it was
splendid. It touched me, and I I
want to apologize. You see. I hurried
right back."
They saw that his eyes were moist,
and at the sight Eliza gave a quiver
ing cry, then turned swiftly to hide
her face. She felt O'Neil's fur clad
arm about her shoulder. His hand
was patting her. and he was saving
gently: "You are a dear child. It was
tremendously good of you both, and 1
ought to be shot for acting as I did. I
wonder if you can accept n wretched
apology as bravely as you accepted a
wrong accusation."
"It wasn't wrong: it was right." she
sobbed. "Dan told her, and she told
"There, there! I was to blame, after
all, for letting any one know, and if
Dan made a mistake he has more than
offset it by liis unselfishness his sac
rifices. It seems I forgot how much 1
really owe him."
"That affair with the shift bosses
wasn't anything." said Dan hastily,
"and it was Eliza's idea. I refused at
first, but when she started to pay them
herself I weakened." He stuttered
awkwardly, for his sister was motion
ing him desperately to be silent. But
he ran on: "Oh. he ought to know the
whole truth and how miserably I acted,
sis! I deserve to be discharged."
"Please don't make this any harder
for me than it is," Murray smiled.
"I'm terribly embarrassed, for I'm not
used to apologies. I can't afford to be
unjust. I have so few friends that I
want to cherish them. I'm sorry you
saw me in such a temper. Anger is a
treacherous thing, and it always be
trays me. Dot's forget that I was
here before and pretend that I just
came to thank you for what you did."
II;.' drew Dan into the shelter of his
other arm and pressed the two young
Ieople to him. "I didn't realize how
deeply you kids care for each other
and for me."
The same ship which had brought
the ominous news to O'Neil r. Iso
brought Curtis Gordon north. He had
remained in Seattle only long enough
to see the Illis story in print, and then
bad hastened back to the front. But
his satisfaction over the mischief he
had done received a rude jolt when at
his first nioment of leisure he looked
over the late magazines which he had
bought before taking leave. In one
which had appeared on the newsstands
that very day he found to his amaze
ment an article by Miss Eliza Apple
ton, in which his own picture appeared,
lie iMDunced upon it eagerly, and then
as he read his eyes narrowed and his
jaw stiffened. There, spread out to
the public gaze, was his own record in
full, including his initial venture into
the Kyak coal fields, his abandonment
of that rroject in favor of Hope Con
solidated and an account of bis con
nection with the latter enterprise.
Eliza had not hesitated to call the mine
worthless, and she showed how he,
knowing its worthlessness from the
first, had used it as a lure to investors.
Then followed the story of his efforts
to gain a foothold in the railroad strug
gle, his defeat at the Salmon river can
yon, his rout at the delta crossing and
his final deathblow at Kyak. His ca
reer stood out boldly in all its fraudu
lent colors; failure was written across
every one of his undertakings. The
naked facts showed him visionary, in
competent, unscrupulous.
Thus far he had succeeded in keeping
a large part of his stockholders in ig
norance of the true condition of Hope
Consolidated, but he quailed at the in
evitable result of this article, which
had been flung far and wide into every
city and village in the land. He dared
not think of its effect upon his present
enterprise, now so auspiciously launch
ed. He had made a ringing apieal to
the public, and its support would hinge
upon its confidence in him as a man of
affairs. Once that trust was destroyed
the Cortez Home railway would crum
ble as swiftly as had all his other
The worst of it was that he knew
himself shut off from the world for five
days as effectually as if he were locked
in a dungeon. There was no wireless
equipment on the ship, he could not
start the machinery of his press bu
reau, and with every hour this damna
ble story was bound to gain momen
tum. He cursed the luck which had
set him on this quest for vengeance
and bound his hands.
Meanwhile Dan was struggling with
his problem in his own way. The ios
sibility that Natalie had voluntarily
betrayed him was a racking torture,
and the remembrance of Eliza's words
added to his suffering. He triedvo
gain some hint of his chief's feeling,
but Murray's frank and friendly atti
tude baffled him.
When at last he received a brief
note from Natalie asking him to call
he raced to Hope afraid, yet eager to
hear what she might say. She met
him on the dock as he left the S. R.
and N. motorboat and led him directlr
Prompted by Humanitarian Spirit,
Men and Women Recom
mend Tanlac.
Men and women who have improper
digestion, who are nervous and very
irritable because of suffering, lack of
energy and ambition for their work,
are easily discouraged and become
melancholy over slight matters, suf
fer with backaches, poor memory, un
sound sleep that does not really rest
them, irregular circulation of the
blood, dizziness and the common ail
ments of the stomach, liver and kid
neys, many of them are caused by
catarrhal affections of the mucus
membranes, which long unchecked,
finally have weakened the vital or
gans, will find Tanlac a tonic, tissue
builder and appetizer designed to
overcome these troubles.
While it is true that the success of
Tanlac in some cases has been so
great as to amaze certain business
men, it really also, is true that Tan
lac is no more popular in one
than another wherever it has been Tn
troduced. Everywhere, the most prominent
people will give testimony in praise
of Tanlac out of gratitude for the re
lief that Tanlac brings, and because
they believe it is their duty to do so.
It is the humanitarian spirit to help
the "other fellow" if you can, that is
the first thought of many men and
women who voluntarily tell what Tan
lac has done for them.
Hundreds of thousands have found
Tanlac an ideal tonic, tissue builder
and strength builder. It reaches
those ills of the stomach, kidneys,
liver and the common maladies of the
day the strength sapping, lethergy
creating ailments that "get your
nerve" whether you be merchant or
artisan, employer or employe, man or

Natalie went straight to the point.
"I'm in dreadful trouble." she said,
"and I sent for you to tell you that I
had no idea of betraying confidences."
Dan uttered some inane platitude,
but his eyes lighted with relief.
"When I saw in tbe papers what a
stir that North Pass and Yukon story
had made I was afraid I had doue
something dreadful. Tell me, is it so?
Did I make trouble?"
"You certainly did. O'Neil was furi
ous, and nobody knows yet what the
result will be. It it nearly cost me
my head."
"Does he blame me?"
"N-uo! no says you're on Gordon's
side now. He blames me or did until
he generously took it on himself."
"What does it all mean? I'm near
ly distracted." Natalie's eyes were
pleading. "Did you think I spied on
Dan glowed with embarrassment and
something more. "I didn't know what
to think," he said. "I was wretchedly
miserable, for I was afraid. And yet
I knew you couldn't do such a thing.
I told O'Neil I wasn't responsible for
what I did or said when with you."
"Mr. Gordon sent me to Omar pur
posely. He sent me twice. It was I
who brought him word that the road
was saved. I told all I'd learned be
cause I believed he no longer hated
Mr. O'NelL I was happy to tell all I
knew, for he deceived me as he de
ceives every one. I learned the truth
too late."
"Why do you stay here?" Dan de
manded hotly.
"Why? I don't know. Terhaps be
cause I'm afraid to leave. I'm alone.
You see, mother believes in him. She's
completely under his sway, and I can't
tell her the sort of man he is. She's
happy, and her happiness Is worth
more to me than my own. But I
shall go away. I can't stand it here
much longer."
"Where will you go?"
"Back to my old home perhaps.
