Doctor and Patient.
AT JOE leaned over anl drew
a blanket a little klIier
across the sleeping cam's
shoulder, while Steve contin
ued silently to study parry's face.
II. on in unconsciousness a faintly
crooked smile of skepticism still dun?
to the lips.
"It was like him," Steve remarked
nt last very soberly." "Somehow the
minute he began to speak I knew it
was exactly tlie sort -j' thins: I expect
ed him to say. The probability of
death is h much more aniusins: pros
pect to some men. Joe. than the per
plexity of living."
Fat Joe flashed a swift, hnlf puzzled
glance at his chief's face. He started
to ask a question, then scowled and
checked himself and turned instead to
kindle a fire in the stove of the lean
to, kitchen of the cabiu. But a half
hour later he was still murmuring the
last phrase over to himself perplexed
ly when Steve came leading the horse
rr.irtinio nr to the onen door. Saddled
and with reins a-trall, the animal had !
been wandering throughout the night
about the upper end of the construc
tion camn clearing. At the sound of
hoofboati outside Fat Joe left the
Hove and the half cooked breakfast
he had set himself to prepare.
"So that's the way one of 'em come,"
Le murmured. "I was wondering
t-ome. Last night I didn't notice the
horse, being a mite too hurried to give
simple nttrntion to details, as it were,
r.ut ain't ain't this one of Allison's
"No. Joe." Steve answered heavily.
"He is from Allison's stables, but we
have him to thank, just the same,
along with Garry, for our blue prints
and estimates. It was Mr. Dcvereau
whom he brought up here last night
r.nd In fairly good time. I should judge,
teo, from the pace at which they set
out. Garry turned him into the hill
road, and he must have stuck to it
blindly until he struck our fork."
.And, after a longer pause, "The horse
U Miss Allison's own property." he
added quietly.
Joe pursed his lips. Instantly at the
mention of the girl's name he felt him
self better equipped to understand
lth the lack of immediate action and
the seeming- preoccupied indifference
of his superior which, in the face of
the night's development's, would have
locn otherwise utterly unaccountable
that morning.
The probable nearness of him who
had gone bounding away emty hand
ed from the lighted shack was of far
less moment than the possible identity
of the one who had furnished the in
spiration of that night raid. And to
Steve the need of assuring that tall
girl with the vivid lips and coppery
hair of Carry Devereau's safety bulk
ed quite as important as did the ad
visability of seeking immediately an
informal interview with I'exter Alli
son, such as the latter himself had so
genially suggested.
I happened to run into Ilarrigan
this morning," Fat Joe said in an un
concerned manner.
As disinterestedly as had Joe, Steve
now drained his coffee cup and waited.
"lie was down to the cook shanty,"
Fat Joe rambled on. "It's rn hour
since he'd ought to have been out there
with the powder squad in the north
cut, and when I aks him if he was
fceliu' indisposed this morning he says
no, but the supply teams was golnir out
and ore of the drivers had told him
that I was sending him along to help
with the loadin". He had such nice,
frank, open faced way of lying that I
vouldn't bring myself to correct him.
i I just let it stand that way and told
Liiu such was the arrangement." Joe

Sieve's face. "He had a bandage
around his head not much different
from this one our friend here is wear
ing, r.ut lie said he was scratched by
a t wig."
The room was very quiet for a
breath. That thin note had crept into
J-'st Joe's tenor voice thin and chill
und menacing. And there as abruptly
:is he had assumed it he flung aside
his mask of disingenuous irrelevance.
Fat Joe wheeled, put. both elbows upon
the table edge and leaned forward
heavily. It was much as though he
were setting himself to shoulder by
sheer weight through the discourag
ing wall of indifference behind which
the other was apparently withdrawing
i:ice more.
"But as for me" his high voice rang
a little "but as for me, well. I always
l;d pride myself that I could shoot
some, whether it was by daylight or
And thi only result which that state
ment achieved was an answering, med
itative nod. Fat Joe subsided All
that he could say had been said, and
they finished breakfast as they had
icgun It, in absolute silence.
Stephen O'Mara touched a match to
t'ac dry grains of tobacco which he
Lad been tamping into the bowl of his
repe. He swung slowly around toward
- Will
the inert figure on the bunk.
"HeMl sleep the day through. 1
think." he said, "and the night per
haps, r.ut I'd advise you to look in on
him now and then, just the same. He
did us a good turn last night. It's the
second good turn he's done for me,
Joe. And now perhaps the chance
has come to even up the score a little.
You would know, wouldn't you, Joe,
Just how many drinks to prescribe for
a man who has been as as ill as Gar
ry has?"
Fat Joe's face commenced to shiae,
and at that he was only beginnins to
"Ain't I the doctor?" he demanded
j aggrievedly. "You don't have to go do
j deeper into technicalities with me.
j And I told you last night anyway,
j didn't T. that it would have to be his
last little celebration unless he was
figuriu on 'a longer journey than he's
ever took before. Well. I've handled
so many cases just like his that there
ain't even a little enjoyable novelty in
'em any more for me."
Steve received the statement with
another nod.
"That's it," he mused. "That's it ex
actly. It would have to be his last
unless he is figuring on a longer jour
ney than he has ever taken before."
He crossed and leaned over the thin
and motionless form of his friend. He
laid one hand gently upon the sleeping
man's shoulder.
"He did that for me ouce, Joe." he
spoke quietly. "lie dropped his hand
on my shoulder like that, and I never
forgot the weigiit of it. Yon watch
him. Joe watch him closely for
awhile, because because, you see. a
man does stray along once in sc often
who's so badly bewildered and trail
weary, so tired of trying and and hurt
in soul that the thought of such a
journey as you speak of begins to seem
the shortest route after all to an end
of thoughts which even alcohol can't
wipe out. You take care of him. aud if
he wakes before I get back explain to
him a littTe just how he came here,
and thank him a lot for what he did.
Ask him to wait until I come back
from Morrison, will you?"
For a moment Joe just stood and
blinked, dumfounded.
"nuhl'' he blurted at last. "Huh!
So that's what you been hintin' at all
the time. Is it? I didn't just get you
right until now. But do you know it
did seem to me once or twice while we
were working over him once or twice
when the goin' was pretty bad that
his spirit wasn't heaving real hearty
into the traces. And, say, ain't that
a poor idea for a guy to get into his
head? Xow, ain't it?' And then, as
the purport of the rest of Steve's words
struck home. "Io you mean you arc
going to Morrison to have a"
Steve recrossed to the door and be
gan to unfasten the feed bag from
Bagtime's nose. no leaned over to
lengthen a stirrup, stopped again to
light his pipe.
"Watch things!" he called as he
swung to the saddle and put Ragtime
to the slope. "Welch things!" nis
voice drifted up from below clear and
eager. "And drive 'ere. Joe drive 'em
drive 'cm from daylight till dark!"
From the threshold Fat Joe watched
bin! until horse and rider disappeared
beyond the line of timber.
Barbara Allison's presence upon the
dusty hill road that morning was
more thrm the result of a merely casual
whim, even though when she turned
her mount north into that mountain
highway a scant two hours before the
choice had been made without actual
thought for the route she was select
ing. The night before as soon as she had
re-entered hurriedly the glowing lodge
n-sprawl upon the hill the impulse had

blind desire to turn and escape, if only
for a little while, from the roomful of
chatter and laughter and bright eyed
badinage loosed upon her immediately
after the unmasking by Dexter Alli
son's perfectly cadenced announcement
of his daughter's engagement. All in
a breath the huge room had become
stiflingly oppressive, the gayety un
bearable. And yet afterward, alone in her
room, when the last treble note had
died away and she had dismissed Ce
cile, her sleepy eyed maid, the sense
of oppression had returned redoubled.
She did not want to sleep. She was
glad of her wide eyed wakefulness,
but in the darkness walls and ceiling
and floor seemed fairly to close in upon
her and hedge in soul and brain as well
as lA)dy. It was the first time the girl
had ever known the need the driving
tfesire to be alone out of doors, where
there was nothing but sky and sky
line to bound her thoughts. And at
last when her restlessness became no
longer bearable, while the remainder
of the house still slept behind drawn
curtains, she rose and slipped inio
boots and breeches and riding coat and
descended to order a not too wide
awake groom to saddle a horse. And
In the very middle of hli sensational
report of Ragtime's empty stall she
swung to tha saddle and turned to
ward the north.
Mile after mile, the roan mare plac
idly choosing the pace, she rode- with
one leg dangling over the pummel of
the saddle, everything else forgotten
in that preoccupied endeavor to review
each moment she had shared with him.
When the higher morning sun found
her far beyond the rolling pasture
"He did that for me once, Joe," he
spoke quietly.
land, miles in the heavy timber, she
had dismounted, there where the high
est loop in the road commanded its
breath taking sweep of country, and
was sitting cross legged upon the trunk
of a fallen tree at the road edge.
Then suddenly Stephen O'Mara in
the flesh appeared before her astride
. liagtiine and leading her roaii, which.
contentedly cropping the bush tops,
had disappeared a full quarter of an
hour before.
The girl gasped at the suddenness
of his coming. She half started to rise
before she remembered the instability
of her perch and then crouched even
j lower than before when she saw that
j he was not yet aware of her nearness.
; She waited, eyes gleefully bright, until
he was almost opposite her before she
coughed, ever so faintly. Then she
tilted her nose aloft . In enchanting
mimicry of his lean and forward thrust
"We never speak," she confided dole
fully to the empty air in front of her
"we never speak as we pass by."
lie whirled. So swiftly that it took
her breath he was out of the saddle
and across the road and standing knee
deep in the undergrowth beside her.
Only his profile had been visible to her
at iirst. Xow the white line of his
jaw and the light in the eyes that
.searched her face chilled her even as
they sent the blood singing in every
vein. Only a few hours . before she
had seen that same cold fear in Miriam
Burrells eyes, and yet not the same,
either, for hers. had been a panic of
lost hope, aud the gleam in the man's
eyes was already only partly dread of
disaster and partly a great and unmis
takable glow of thankfulness. Bar
bara remembered then, with a twinge
of guilt that she could have forgotten
it so completely, the black robed ligure
that had gone thundering off on the
same mount which Stephen O'Mara
was riding now. She half lifted both
hands to him apprenhensively.
"You aren't going to tell me. are
you," she asked, "that anything dread
ful lias happened to Garry?"
Dumbly, but most reassuringly, SteA e
shook his head. From the top of her
hatless, wind tossed, brown crowned
head to the tips of the absurdly small
boots tucked up beneath her he scan
ned her slim body, Itarbara realized
that he was trying to speak and find
ing the effort hard. Slowly he remov
ed his hat and passed one hand across
his forehead.
"Man," he ejaculated fervidly to him
self, "but that's the longest hundred
yards you've ever traveled on foot or
a-horseback!"' and abruptly, accusing
ly to her, "Do you know that I've been
months and years and ages rounding
that bend to to find you a little crum
pled up heap in the road?"
"I'm sorry," she murmured humbly.
"I'm sorry to disappoint you; but, you
see. I didn't know"
She laughed at him. Her lips curled,
petal-like, in a gurgling peal of enjoy
ment at his shamefaced grin.
"I found j-our horse rolling," he ex
plained, and his gravity was dogged in
the face of her brightness. "How 1
knew it was yours I don't know, but
I did just the same. I thought she had
thrown you, I'd already made up my
mind, if there was one scratch on your
body, to take that mare's head between
my nanus and break her neck! Y'ou
see, I believed I knew alreadv just
what it would mean to me If anything
ever napioned to rou. But it's a lot
different imagining the world without
you and and facing the actual possi
bility.of it. Was I fairly tragic?" .

This is a true story and happened

Despite the fact that women arc

Women suffer in silence. How
many women are there who would

am nervous and all run down," "Life
Is just a misery." They go on suf
fering because they shrink from mak

the ills of women is a delicate one,
but it is perfectly proper to say that
in most cases women suffer from lack
of vitality, which brings on nervous

Burglars made an attempt to break

who sleeps there, waked up and

One of our oldest and most respected
public spirited citizens has gone and
left us. We mourn his departure, but
not for long. Soon we hope he'll re
turn, renewed and rc-animated for
life's trials and burdens. Some days
ago, during court week, Mr. Moore,
County Clerk, Mr. Jennings and
others who happened accidentally to
visit the Sheriff's room found there
a new suit of clothes, nice, handsome,
pretty clothes. Black broad, cloth
clothes, white vest, and so on. On
being questioned closely, vthe Sheriff
said he had an uncle about his height
and build, who was coming on soon
to go to California, and he had
bought the clothes for a present to
him. Many days last winter and this
spring have we missed our genial cor
dial sheriff,-Mr. Cutler and it was
noticed that he always disappeared
from riattsmouth vision about 9:30
mornings and returned at about 3:15
in the afternoon when he did return.
All these signs and evidences gave
good reason to the minds of his friends
for believing that one of thesg days
he would go and do something des
perate, pleasant as he always looks.
Nobody ever believed the clothes
story, at least the uncle part of it.
Tuesdav guess-work became facts.
At 1):C0 as usual the sheriff left for
the west, and yesterday morning
bright and early the Herald got this
telegram from Lincoln: "Dear Tiptop:
Your Sheriff, Mart Cutler, Esq., is to
be married to Miss Gertie Borders
this morning at half past nine. Give
it to him old boy. S." We looked
for it, everybody felt for a week that
something was going to happen to
Mart. Now its all over we pause for
breath and wonder why he didn't
tend to this before, long ago, last
winter, say. It would- have been
handier and we could have helped him
get married. Oh, Mart, we'll remem
ber you to go and run off that way
and send the Herald back an old legal
notice from Lincoln signed "Yours
respectfully, M. B. Cutler, Married."
We suppose he was absent-minded and
the last word was a kruisus-ijenna and
then how cool': "Send me a paper to!
Depver and Salt Lake I want to
knew how they all Are at. home." j
Shucks, what does he care about the
folks at home. Whose folks? Where
is his home? All right Mr. Cutler the
Herald will publish the legal and send
the paper to Denver and Sale Lake
all O. K. and let you know about the
j)olks at home. Very respectfully,
Nebraska Herald. Later We re
ceived the following: "Married at
Lincoln Wednesday morning June 27
at the house of Hon. T. M. Marquette,
by Eider H. T. Davis, Mr. M. B. Cut
ler of Cass county, Neb, to Miss Ger
trude Borders of Lancaster county,
Neb." And the happy couple left
for Denver and the great west at
noon. Well old friend we're all real
glad at home; the folks will all wel
come the bride and groom back to
Plattsmouth and wish them a long,
long happy wedded course.
