a little foot traveler such as he de
scribed, and after a time even that
f inal! hope died.
When Iexter Allison came over the
next day, his lace far more perturbed
than Caleb had ever before seen it by
the news which Barbara in tears had
carried to him. together the. two men
searched for Steve, driving in silence
ilirough the country until they both
realized that the search was useless.
And at last, one day;- in early fall.
Caleb .started alone upon his errand
f!it that stretch of timber to the north
which the boy himself had vaguely
designated as "up river."
lie spent a week in the saddle before
lie located the cabin of the Jenkinses
in an isqlatod clearin?; upon the main j
brauch of the river. And even then.
when he did locate the Jenkinses, it
took hours of quiet argument before
Caleb could convince those .shy and
Fiispicious people that his errand was
nn honest one. Eventually they did
come to believe him. They led him
afoot another half mile up the timber
fringed stream to a log cabin set back
In the balsams upon a needle carpeted
knoll. And they stood and .stared in
stolid wonder at this portly man in
riding breeches and leather puttees
when he tin:il!y emerged from that
Muall shack, Old Tom's tin box under
his arm. and with Hps working strange
ly pinned the door shut behind him.
Caleb left in the limp fingers of the
head1 of the Jenkins' household a yel
low tinted note of a denomination
which they had not even known exist
ed, lie left them half doubting its
genuineness until later when there
came an opportunity to spend it. And
Sarah was waiting at the door of the
white place on the hill when Caleb
wheeled into the. yard at dusk two
'"You've found him:" she exclaimed
as she glimpsed bis face when he en
tered the hall.
Caleb shook his head, his heart ach
ing at the hunger in her question.
"So, I haven't found him, Sarah,"
he said gently enough. "But I I've
found out who lie is."
They forgot their supper that night.
With heads close together they hung
for hours over tiie ink smeared sheaf
of papers which the tin box yielded
up. Most of thorn were covered with
a cramped and misspelled handwriting
which they knew must be that of the
one whom Steve had called "Old Turn."
Some of them were hard to decipher,
but their import was very, very clear.
There was one picture, a miniature
of a girl, eager of face and wavy of
hair. Her relationship to the boy was
unmistakable. Sarah found th; t and
wept over it silently, and while she
wept Caleb sifted out the remaining
"It's not hard to understand now. is
it;'' he said. "It's pretty plain now
why he had to 0. And we, Sarah we
who were going to 'make something
of him" why, we should have known
absolutely without this evidence. They
laughed at him, they made fun of him,
and there isn't any better blood than
Hows in that boy's veins! He was
Stephen O'ilara's son, and no more
brilliant barrister than O'Mara ever
addressed a jury of a prisoner's peers
and and broke their very hearts with
the simplicity of his pleading."
v Sarah folded her thin hands over the
"I like his mother's face," she mur
mured faintly. "And I'm jealous of
her, Cal! You don't have to remind
me of the rest of it, either, for I re
call it all. She died and he lie went
all to pieces. They said at his death
that he was destitute. And when he
did follow her across they hunted
everywhere, didn't they, and never
f und the boy? Didn't some of the
newspapers argue that a servant a
urdencr had stolen him?"
Caleb nodded his head.
".Most of them ridiculed the sugges
tion, but it was true, just the same.
That servant; wa3 Old Tom. And the
only defense he makes is just one line
or so in in this." Caleb dropped a
hand uion the half legible pages. "He
says that he wasn't going to let civili
zation make of the boy's life the wreck
which he, poor, queer, honest soul,
thought it had made of his father's.
And do you know, Sarah, do you know,
I can't help but believe that this over
zealous thing which the law would
have prosecuted was the best thing he
could have done? I'll take these things
new and lock them in the safe for the
bey until he comes back home!"
But Sarah Hunter kept the picture
of Stephen O'Mara's mother separate
from the rt; she took it. upstairs
with her when she went, white and
tired faced, to bed. And it was Sarah's
faith which outlasted the years which
followed. She never weakened in her
belief that some dav the bov weuld
come back she and one other whose
faith in his last boyish promise, phras
ed iu bitterness, also endured. For
during the next five years there was
not a summer which brought Allison
into the hills but what the tirst ques
tion of his daughter Barbara, mother
less now herself, was of Steve.
"Has has Stephen come back?" she
At first the query was marked by
nothing more than a child's naive ea
gerness, and later, when it was brought
up in a casual, by the way fashion, it
was nevertheless, tinged with hope.
Five years lengthened into ten. and
ctill Steve did not come. But when
ever Barbara asked that question Ca
leb remembered, as though it had hap
pened only yesterday, that morning
when she tirst appeared to the boy.
Then came a morning when Stephen
O'Mara did return. All winter and
throughout the summer, too, the Hun
ter place had been closed until that
dav iu late Octoln-r. It had been a
warm week a week of such unseason-
able humiditv for the hills that Caleb.
rising somewhat before his usual hour,
had blamed Ik sleeplessness, as usual,
upon the weather. He was glad to b
home again that morning. Caleb was
wondering if Barbara would be with
her father on this trip. Barbara had,
he knew, been two years on the conti
nent, "finishing." Allison called it. al
ways with a wry face and a gesture
toward his wallet pocket. He was
wondering as he came dovVn the stairs
if she would ask him again if if and
then at the sight of a seated figure
outside on the top step of tbo veranda
he pulled tip sharp in the doorway.
Caleb didn't have to wonder any
The attitude of that figure before
him was so like the picture which time
had been unable to erase, so absolute
ly identical in everything save garb
and size alone, that the man. recoiling
a little, dragged one haul across his
forehead ns though he doubted his own'
eyes. But when he looked again it
was still there, sitting chin in pair.?,
small head under a rather weather
beaten felt hat thrust slightly forward,
gazing fixedly toward the stucco house
beyond the shrubbery. And before
Caleb could move, lie fore he was more
than half aware of the painful pulse
in his throat, it all happened a.ain just
as it had happened ycar.j and years
Caleb heard voices in the adjoining
grounds, and as he half turned in that
direction Allison's bulky form, vivid in
a far more vivid plaid, appeared in the
hedge gap. While Caleb stared anoth
er iigure flashed through ahead of him.
laughter upon her lips, and paused
a-tip-toe to wave a hand in greeting.
And instantly, as they had ten years
before, Barbara Allison's eyes swung
in instant scrutiny of the one who was
seated at Caleb's feet. She hesitated
and recovered herself. But when with
quite dignified deliberation she finally
came forward to pass that motionless
figure upon the steps every pulse in
her body was beating consciousness of
his nearness. And yet at that when
she paused at Caleb'vs side and bobbed
her head with a characteristic impet
uosity which she had never lost sip?
seemed completely oblivious to the
presence of any one save Caleb and
"Good morning, Uncle Cal," she mur
mured very demurely.
Then the man upon the steps moved.
He rose and turned and swept ins
rather weathcr beaten hat from his
head, nis hair was still wavy, still
chestnut in the shadows. And Caleb,
though he could not force a word from
his tightened throat, marveled how tall
the lKy had grown how paradoxically
broad of shoulder and slender of body
he seemed to be.
Pester Allison, coming up less airily
across the lawn, surprised his daugh
ter poised with one hand outstretched,
red lips half open. lie found her star
ing, velvet eyed and pink of face, at a
tall figure in blue flannel , and, cordu
roy, and, although he had never seen
him in all the months that the latter
had been in his employ, Allison knew
this must be the one in whose keeping
lay, directly or indirectly, the success
or failure of the biggest thing he had
ever attempted in this north country
the man to whom he always referrel,
whenever he boasted of his exploits, as
"my man O'Mara."
"I always told them that you would
roine bavk." she murmured then. "Just
Is you you said you would."
The remark was barely loud enough
for even Steve to hear, but hard upon
its utterance she caught her breath iu
linger at herself for her own senseless
confusion, which had led her into saj--ing
the one thing she least of all had
wanted to voice, liven an inane re
mark concerning the weather would
have been better than tli?t girlish
uaivete which she felt seemed to force
Upon him. too, a recollection of the
very letter of a promise which had, no
doubt, long since become in hi3 mind
nothing but a quaint episode not un
titled with absurdity.
"Hum-m-m'." puffed Aiiison. "Ilum-
m-m!" He fpoke directly to Stephen
O'Mara, who half turned Li head at
the first heavily facetious t-yl'table. "So.
you did get my message, eh? I rather
thought that it wouldn't ro;;eh you up
river until today." An ample smile
embraced the tail figure iu riverman's
garb and his own daughter's crimson
countenance a iuo.t meaningful smile
of roguery. "Well, from what I've
heard," he state 1. "and what I've
seen, I should say that you are my
man O'Mara. Mr. Elliott himself has
informed me that your quite spectacu
lar success in one or two vital cam
paign has been enthvly i'.J to the
fact that you are an or c i;.:rtunist!
I agree with Mr. Elliott absolutely
that is, if my titst piemise is correct."
Barbara's face had cooled a little in
that moment siino Steve's eyfs hail
left her lace. Mow siie forgot her
confusion-forgot to be a;noycd, even
at her fat Iter's clumsy banter.
"Your man, 'O'Mara!" she exclaimed
indignantly. "Your man.! Why, he
he's my" And that was as far ha
Her voice thinned into nothingness,
but words were not necessary to tell

been about, to asset t a prior claim

all the uiui.uliies, which he chooses to
view as gloriously romantic tilts with
Destiny, depends one half upon luck
and the other half on being on the
ground personally when the affair
starts." He half faced toward Allison.
"I am O'Mara." ho finished very brief

to be the East Coast Development and
There was at most no more than the
barest suggestion of it in Sieve's crisp
question, but Caleb sensed immediate
ly that Allison's pla.id appropriation
of the blue flannel shirt e;i one as his
own particular property was not a mu
tually accepted status. Dexter, how
ever, failed or chose to read nothing
in the drawling question.
"I'm it." he agreed jovially "that is,

lison emphasized his comprehension.

He's Elliott's find. Elliott suggested
him as the one man for this; job when
I consolidated with the Ainneslej
crowd and they took up the. contract
to move the reserve timber from Thir
ty Mile and tbo valleys above. Elliott
knew of him, but I've been looking up
his record pretty closely since he took
hold in earnest.
"He's in his twenties, as near as I
can make out, but he's come through
on one of two jobs that might well
make an old campaigner envious. He
took a "fortune in hard woods out of
San Domingo for a Berlin concern; he
was the only in an on the St. Sebastian
river job who said the construction
was too light. Ho said it wouldn't
stand when the ice began to move in
:1he spring, and it didn't! Oh. he knows
'his business! But it wasn't his suc
cesses which caught Elliott's eye. It's

and righting and fighting, when all the
rest had quit, that made me anxious
to get a look at him. Perhaps there
are older men who ean outfigure him
on loads and stresses, but as a fiel i
general he stands alone. He can han
dle men. And when it comes to meet
ing conditions just as they arise El
liott says he's a wonder. He ean out

for it, and I believe it still, even though
I have seen Elliott's en-ineer and
know what he has already accomplish

schedule and that's why I'm up here
