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 appearance. 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 iio v Illis is backing me?" I ;;n stammered. "I perhaps I "What has gone wrong, chief':" -Jid you tell her the inside the sto ry of his agreement with the steam 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 wouldn't" -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, l.ir she wouldn't knowingly" Gordo:: tired you for talking too much. I tLought you had learned your !e.sn, but it seems you hadn't. Don't 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 Natalie?" "Yes." "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 abominably. "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 gasped. "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 Gordon." "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 schemes. 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 MOST PROMINENT PERSONS GLAD TO GIVE TESTIMONY 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 ..city 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 woman. Tanlac now may be obtained in riattsmouth, at the Mauzy Drug Co. Tanlac may also be obtained in Springfield, at H. Fiegenbaum's store, and in Weeping Water, at the Meier Drug Co. The best hammocks in the city can be found at the Stanfield Book Shop. Prices the lowest. to the house. 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 you?" 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. Somewhere anywhere away from Alaska." To Be Continued.) Letter files at the Journal offica. W. A. ROBERTSON, 4 Lawyer. 4- East of Riley Hotel.

Searl says the Omaha Auto club recommended the White way across Iowa but on re turning over the Lincoln Highway he found it to be much better. The reason the Omaha train was late Wednesday evening was that just north of town they stopped and pulled one of Wm. Ash's engines out of the ditch. The Missouri Pacific gets a good many kicks but we think they are the most accommodating of roads. We have heard of them stopping for a farmer's cream but never of them pulling a thresher engine out of trouble. 4-KI-M-r ELMWOOD Leader-Echo -l- H. B.
