"Tell me about 3Irs. Gordon."
"She's quite a person," said Slater
slowly. "She surprised me. She's

Slater sniffed. "I think it's pretty

robl.ed a blind puppy of a biscuit I'd
leave a thumb print on his oar or the

from the top of a wall. He'd lean on
his shotrrun and say: 'Hurry up. Tat

of oakum to pick.' It just goes to
show that some of us are born behind
the prame and never pret even, while
others, like Gordon. ;uit winner, no
matter how much they lose." Ilav'mp:
relieved himself of this fervid homily.
Happy Tom unrolled a package of
puni and thrust three sticks into his
mouth. "Speakincr of bad luck." he
continued, "when are you going to pret

O'Xeil started. "Why never! It
isn't the same kind of proposition n
building a bridge, you know. There's
a little matter of youth and prood looks
that counts considerably in the mar
riage business. No woman would
have an old chap like me."

then shook his head. He saw that thej
hair was growing grayer, that the face
wa- very plain, and yes. unquestion-j
ably it was no longer youthful. Of
course he didn't feel old. but the evi-j
deuce that he was so admitted of no!
disproof, and it was evidence of a sort
which no woman could disregard.
For a week the ice rose slowly, a.
foot a day. and in spite of the greatest
watchfulness it took the false work
with it here and there. I'.ut concen
trated effort at the critical points saved
the structure from serious injury.
Then the jam in front of Jackson prla
cier. went out. at least in part, and the

The towering three bent traveler ran
smoothly on its track, and end r it
grew a webwork of metal, bra-ed and

ordinary strains, the pressure of a b in

looked on the structure appeared to
build itself, like some dream edifice.
It seemed a miracle that human ban-Is

swiftly and with so little effort. But
every piece had been cut and tit toil
carefully, then checked and placed
where it was. accessible.

On April IS the span was completed.
In thirteen days Melleu's lew had
laid -l"i ft-tt of the heaviest Mod ever
used in a brid-o of this type. But
there was no halt. The material for
the second section had. been assembled
meanwhile, and the traveler began to
swing it into p!a-e.
The din was unceasing. The clash f
riveters, the creak and rattle of heists,
the shouts of men. mingled iu a per
sistent, ear splitting clamor, and lot. t
by foot the girders readied out toward
the secomi monolith which rose from
the river K-d. The well adjusted hu

Every man knew his place and the du
ties that went with it; the hands of
each worker were capable and .killed.

its fury. In six days X) feet more of
steel had been bolted f:;st to the o;ii-"
plete section, and span No. 2 was in
place. But the surface of the Salmon
was no longer white ami pure; it was
dirty and discolored now. for the de
bris which had collected daring the
past "winter was exposing itself. Tin
icy covering was partially inundated
also. Shallow ponds formed upon it
and Mere rippled by the south breo.:e.
Burning waters vi every side sang a
menace to the workers.
Then progress ceased abruptly. It
became known that a part of the mate
rial for the third span had gone astray
in its long journey across the conti
nent. There haTl been a delay at the
Pittsburgh mills, then a blockade in
the Sierras; O'Neil was in Omar at the
end of the cable straining every nerve
to have the shipment rushed through.
Mellen brooded over his uncompleted
work; Parker studied the dripping hills
and measured the melting snows. He
stilt smiled, but he showed his anxiety
ill a constant nervous unrest, and he
could not sleep.
At length news came that Johnny
Brennan had the steel aboard his ship
and had sailed. A record run was pre
dicted, but meanwhile the south wind
brought havoc n its breath. The sun
shone hotly into the valley of the, Sal
mon, and instead of warmth it brought
a chill to the hearts of those who
watched and waited.
Twelve endless, idle days crawled by.
Winter no longer gave battle: she was
routed a ml in her. mad retreat she
threatened to overwhelm O'Neil's for
tunes. On May 0 the needed bridge mem
bers were assembled, and the erect ion
of span C began. The original plan
had been to build this section on the

Blaine smiled iu spite of himself.
"You don't understand. It's as bad as

its smaller brother, but that warm j
sped had evidently had its effect upon j
the giant, for now he shook o.T his t
lethargy and awoke. lie stirred, g-ad- j
ually at tirt and without sound, as if j
I-ent upon surprising tl'.e interlopers; j
then his speed increased. As tin? gla- J
cier advam ed it thrust the nine foot I
blanket of lake ice ahead of it. and
this in turn crowded the river iee
d -'.vn up-.)!i the bridge. 'The movement
at the camp site en the first day was
only two inches, but that was sutfi
cicr.tly serious.
The ouet of Cariieid at this time
was. of course, unexpected, for no for
ward moti-m had ever 1 eon reported
prior to the spring breakup. The ac
tion of the ice heretofore had b-on
alarming. but. now consternation
spread. A panic- swept the ranks of
the builders, for thi was no short
lived phenomenon. This was the an
nual march of the glacier ilself. which
promised to continue indefinitely. A
tremendous cutting edge, nine feet in
thickness, like the blade of a carpen
ter's plane, was being driven against
the bridge by an irresistible force.
Once a'min the endless thawing and
chopping and gouging of ice began, but
th- more rapidly the e-ucroaching edge
was cut away the more swiftly did it
bear down. The huge mass began to
rumble: it "calved." it split, it detonat
ed, and. having finally loosened itself
l'ro:.-i its bed. it acquired increased mo
mentum. As the men with chisel.? and
ytcimpoints became exhausted others
took their places, but the structural
gang clung to its peivh above, aug
menting the din of riveters and the
groaning of blocks and tackle. Among
the abh bodied men sleep now was out
of the question, for the ice gained in j
spite t-r every eiiort. it was ioo nue
to remove the steel iu the uncomplet
ed span to a place of safety, for that
woul d have required more time than j
to bridge the remaining gap.
Piling began to buckle and bend be
fore that irresistible push. The whole
nicely balanced mass of metal was in
da tiger of being unseated. Mellen
cursed the heavens in a black fury;
I'arker smiled through white lips;
O'Neil ground his teeth and spurred
Ids men. on.
This, feverish haste brought its-penalty.
On th'j evening of the 14th,
when the span was more than three
quarters linisbed, a lower chord section
fouled as it was lifted, and two load

At midnight of the 10th the last riv

to such an extent that the lower chord
was buckled down stream about riprht
inches, and the distance was growing
steadily. Quickly the traveler was
shifted to the .false .work beyond the

heard the workmen cheering Mellen
and I'arker and himself. It was very
foolish, he thought, to cheer, since the
river had so nearly triumphed and the
fmal test was yet to come.
He fell upon his bed clothed as he
was." An hour later the false work
beneath span 3 collapsed.
Although the bridge was not yet fin
ished, the most critical point of its
construction had been passed, for the
fourth and final portion would be built
over shallow water, and no great diffi
culties were to be expected even
though the ice went out before the
work was Gnished. But Murray had
made his promise and his boast to
complete the structureMwithin a stated
time, and he was determined to live
up to the very letter of his agreement
with the trust. As to the result of the
breakup he had no fear whatever.
Por once nature aided him. She
seemed to smile as if in approval of
his steadfastness. The movement of
the channel ice became irregular, spas
modic, but it remained firm until the
last span had been put in place.
