duties the following morning

surin;; to li is companion. Up
tt that time he had made his own in
dustry tin? butt of much good natured
ridicule, viewing it apparently as a
sort of vacation novelty armi'sing
enough while the novelty lasted. But
he went from task to task that nest
d;:y iu a methodical, dogged fashion
llK.t was farthest of all from amiabili
ty. Two or three times Steve, trying
to si are him needkra effort, attempt
ing to show him how to favor blistered
':a::ds and aching bade, met with re
liuL's s curt that he learned to keep
his advice to himself. lie knew what
cud Harry was working to achieve. He
would have allowe'd himself to smile
over the thought that the other man
would he tiled enough before night
-ame without trying to make that
work any harder, only he did not dare
venture that smile.
"You've been trying to help me,"
Garry said to Steve. "You've been try
ii:g to throw me a line. And for a
ti:::e I tried to catch it, Steve. Hut it
isn't in mo to try that hard any more.

Some men you. for instance because
their self respect won't let them stop,

happens one who keeps on trying only
because there is one other person at
lean who may be the gladder for his
success. I don't expect you to under
stand. I know it will sound small and
cowardly to you. It's too lone'ome liv
ing, Steve, when there's no one who
cares whether you live or not!"
"That does not fit your case, Steve
objected instantly, "when your danger
or your safety eeps a woman watch
ing white faced "with terror through
the ni'zht for your return."
tJarry propped himself upon one el
bow, the better to see the speaker's
-My safety?" he repeated blankly.
"My return:" And then, wanly grate
ful. "You .are not the sort of man who
lies convincingly, Steve."
And then Stephen O'Mara let him
hae it all the story which had lain
so many days In his heart. There w ere
times when Iarry went even paler
during the short recital, times when
everything else "wag submerged by the
incredulity that flooded hisface. But
1 .of ore Steve had finished the last trace
of doubt was gone. Before the end
t ame Marry had bowed his head, this
time in flushed, self conscious wonder
which transhgured him.
"Miriam Bmtell!" he breathed.
I lis; head came np. The next in
flr.nt he voiced the words which Steve
tijost wanted to hear.
"You shouldn't have told me this," I
sr.id he. "You had n3 right, unless
Steve laughed at him.
"God bles you, boy." he exclaimed.
"I asked her if I might. Why, don't
you understand that she meant to her
self if I didn't? You see, she is far,
far braver, than you are. Garry."
Garry lifted his hands and hid bis
So quietly that his esit made no
sound Steve slipped to his feet and
pissed outside. It had stopped rain
ing. The hardwood ridges, touched
by frost, were flaming streaks of col
or against the rain washed evergreens
when he picked his way down to the
river Rud found a dry stone for a seat.
An hour and more he sat there while
his thoughts went back over the trail
of the years, the trail which had led
him from that cabin to a ialr of vio
let eyes and lips that arched like a
Steve let his rnind turn again unre
pt rvedly to his own problem that morn
ing. He tried to face sure eyed the
road which still stretched ahead. lie
did not know that Garrett Devereau,
the debouaire, the cynical, the world
weary and world wise, had broken
d'wn and was sobbing noiselessly, as
in?n ob. in tfap roim which h? had
left, shaking with deep and terrible
gasps that racked his verr soul. Bnt
it was already daybreak; it was trail's
end now for Garry. It does make a
difference if one knows that some one
I'pon their return to Thirty Mile two
nights later Joe's attitude of criticism
was the first thing which piqued
Steve's interest. There was something
ludicrous in the former's voice as he
sat and anathematized the food which
the cook by brought to the table, even
though he devoured hungrily all that
his plate would hold. And because
Joe was so obviously primed for a sen
sation that eveniug out of sheer per
versity Steve struggled to draw him
into a discussion of a topic which, just
as obviously, had, no appeal just then.
"What I hope to do," he confided
gravely to Garry, "is to finish up at
Morrison and make possible the trans
fer of some of those men up here. We
are working only one shift now. With
Lwo I figure we could sail along a-fog-ging.
How does that strike you. Joe?"
That was only one of his many at
tempts, but all of them, save for the
Inner laughter which they afforded,
were totally without result. Joe's an
swers were monosyllable, his attention
wandering at best. To that particular
question he nodded his head spirit
lessly. "This butter ain't none too fresh." ho
growled sourly, "and I wonder if that
cook boy thinks we dote on ham every
meal? I don't for one. It may be all
right if a man's plumb starving to
death, but it don't lend no real ele
gance to a repast."
That gloomy complaint brought little
more than a sparkle to Steve's eyes,
but It made Garry lean forward iu his
place. Throughout the meal while the
ether two fenced in just such fashion
he forgot his own food to listen, de
lighted anticipation in every feature.
And when they had finished supper
and pushed back their chairs he stood
grinning a little, watching Joe survey
that littered room which served as of
fice and sleeping quarters for the chief
engineer of the East Coast company.
Fat Joe's gaze swung from wall to
wall, from Uttered corner to heaped up
chair. Then he shook his head in de
spair. "It looks to me, Steve," he grunted,
"as though you ain't never had no real
training in tidiness, have you? There
don't seem to be no system at all in
the way you leave your things around.
There's one boot over in that corner;
It's pot a mate, I know, because I saw
you take them off last night I wouldn't
be certain otherwise. And it's the same
way with all your things. Just look at
this room! A nice place to receive call
ers in, now ain't It?"
That was the first lead he. tendered
them, but Steve, rather than gratify
him with a direct question, chose to go
forward in the dark. He leaned over
and followed his usual custom when
he wanted to think. He tapped out his
"But I can always find everything."
he defended "that is, unless you have
taken the trouble to put things away.
Then it's a tossr.p that something or
ot"her will never ue found until it turns
up of its own accord. It's not so bad,
Joe." lie, too, swung to survey the
room. "Xot so bad! Just a little unset
tled, that's all. Are we likely to have
any callers, do you think, who would
object to this layout?"
Joe snorted, but hi eyes were
mournful. He knew that there was
nothing else to do but y4eld a part at
"We ain't likely to," he murmured.
"We're just naturally bound to have
ein. They're comln' in tomorrow, and
I ask you again, ain't this a pleasing
prospect to greet 'em?"
For all that he seemed to be staring
ruefully down the room, he was watch
ing for the surprise that darted across
Steve's face. Momentarily the latter
had forgotten his assumed air of
"Tomorrow? Who?" And then Steve
laughed. "Go ahead and tell us, Joe.
I'm beat! I'll admit that I'm panting"
Joe 'pulled up a chair and' dropped
into it. It appealed to him. this meth
od, whenever he had the time to spare.
His pink face was still innocent of
"I don't mind the men folks," he, re
sumed. "That fat party, I mean, who
w ears the plaid suits, nor Caleb Hun
ter, either. Both of them are used to
such truck as this. And I reckon it'll
tickle the ladies too. But I can see
Honey sticking his, nose in the air and
snlfBn' supercilious like the first min
ute he gets his nose in the door. He
ain't going to apprqve at all, at ail
not any way you loot at it."
Both Steve and Garry igtiored the
rest of Joe's explanation to gasp that
single word hi concert.
"Who in the world do you mean by
"Who ceuld 1 mean?" Joe demanded
collectedly. "I didn't give him the
name, did I? I mean that char Wiok-
ersham, who owns the timber north
of us. Foreign, ain't he? Sure, I
thought so? Well, every time I run
across that man's path my heart swells
with patriotism. I guess I'm just as
tfad to be Worn plain United States."
The first part of that statement was
listened to c losely enough by both men;
the last sentence or two, for all that it
was heartfelt and sincere, was lost
Upon them both. And Steve's mirth
was even more hysterical than was
that of Garry Devereau.
"Honey!"' he panted. "Now, isn't
that a wonder? Joe, you're, too'good!
Yoti are altogether too good to be
wasted on these timbered solitudes.
Men pay $2 a seat, Joe, to hear per
formers work who are rank ttmr.teurs
in comparison with you."
The riverman's eyes grew belliger
ent. "Funny, is it? So awful funny! Well,
perhaps you think I can't read plain
print yet, never havin' enjoyed a lib
eral education. Hut take a look for
He pulled up a pile of newspapers
which had come in since their absence,
sorted out one that was creased open
and handed it to Steve. It was an an
nouncement of Barbara Aliison's en
gagement to the lion. Archibald Wirk
ersham that column to which Fat
Joe had folded the sheet a many days
old anonuncement now. But the smile
did not even stiffen upon Steve's lips.
The picture which accompanied it was
a poor one, heavy shadowed and
smeared and lacking in detail, yet Bar
bara's face was unmistakable. The
room became quiet. In that luuh
Garry realized that Joe's mistaken,
translation of the title had not been,
as Joe had himself suggested, dne to
lack of knowledge, but to a desire to
apprise his employer delicately of that
which he believed was si ill news to
him. And yet, from the easy way in
which he redd it, word for word.
Garry was positive that all this which
the New York daily blazoned forth
with its customary mixture of snob
bishness nnxl vulgarity was no longer
news to Steve. "The latter's eyes lifted
and dwelt long upon fat .Tee's f:'ce.
So that's where you got it. was it.
Joe?" he asked evenly. "You make it
Honoy,' do you? And when do they
come in. Joe?"
"Tomorrow night. One of the team
sters brought word this afternoon, just
before you got back. Honey is going to
have a look at his trees and things, the
way I understand it. And tho rest of
them, I take it, want to look us over In
our wild state. Where arc wt going to
put them girls?"
Steve's answer was long irr coming.
"Miss Allison :" he wanted to know.
"And that tall, red headed cue, Joe
corrected promptly. I don't remember
her name, but she's coming' too.'
As studiously as he had done a mo
ment before. Garry agaim avoided
"Miriam Burrell." the latter supplied
the omission. "And that's fine, isn't it?
How long are they going to stay. Joe?"
But Joe had finished with trifling.
"Where are we going to put them?"
he insisted doggedly.
"Why. we have a couple of shelter
tents somewhere in the d utile, haven't
we? We might pitch those if he
1 ioked about ruminatively "if you
think this is too squalid."
Jce turned appoalingly to Garry, only
to meet eyes flaring with deviltry.
'lf you think that I'm going to give
up my quarters for a troup of curious
sightseers youe mistaken. If that's
what you turned toward me for don't
allow yourself to dweil upon it another
minute. I'm a laboring man. and I
have to have decent rest at nights. Do
you suppose t'ecile, the maid, would
really mind a tent?"
And then Joe's face went red.
"Now aiu't you the pair of rough jok
ers?'' he whined. "Ain't you, though?
But what's it going to be this room or
Garry's? The way I look at it we're
elected to camp out ourselves. We're
hardened sons of the wilderness, you
know. That's what they always call us
In print. But how am I going to get
this place cleaned up?"
For another hour Joe argued it and
at last settled upon the- storehouse
building as the likeliest for sleeping
quarters for the feminine portion of
"We have to eat in here, anyhow,"
he argued, "so I guess it's the best ar
rangement we can hit on. Honey won't
be here much to meals either. That'll
be one nice thing about it. He'll be
going north directly. And now now I
guess I'll go out and have a look at the
pantry, even if it dx?s make me feel
sort of faint every time I think of the
grub we've got on hand. Canned
beans and boiled potatoes and houi and
bacon to round out a banquet. Why
couldn't a couple of mighty hunters
like you bring home more than one lit
tle haunch of venison? Bacon and
Ix-ans! Steve, you sure have been liv
ing mighty low down on this job.'"
He went out with a great show of
haste, but returned almost immediate
ly, forgot the urgency of matters in
general iu finding Garry idly shutlling
a deck of cards. Throughout the eve
ning Joe had exhibited an unwilling
ness to meet the third man's glances
dirertly. but it was impossible for him
to remain oblivious to the clicking of
the chips. He balanced first on one
foot and then on the other for a mo
ment, then diffidently drew up a chair.
"Just a friendly hand or two. I sup
pose," he suggested when the other
made no move to begin. "Low limit
and wide open, eh?"
Garry still toyed with the cards.
"I don't suppose you've ever forgot
ten the first game in which we in
dulged, have you, Joe?" he asked at
Joe was not comfortable.
"Scarcely," he admitted, "scarcely."
"Nor the stakes?" pursued Garry.
"I I seem to recall 'em faintly."
Garry's ycal of amusement was a
rolliekin? a a boy's.
"So da I." he exclaimed. l'Afl(L.iU'
remember rightly you stated on that
occasion that cash was no considera
tion with you. Does that still hold
It was th? first good look
had ct the other's face. The change
he found in it seemed -to rerplex hiui
more than a little.
"I take it that it does." Garry did
not wait for his reply. And now
what do you say to that same full bot
tle against a a ninety-nine year blan
ket ivstriction. with me at the wrong
end of the odds?'
Joe flitted his eyes.
