"I see," he murmured. "May I ask
what's your grievance this time?"
They "were satellites of ITarrisnn.

where his eyes could find them at

"I see," acrain observed Steve. "Are
they guaranteeing this wage for as

Apparently they had decided, too,
that there should be no bargaining.
We want our time," Fallon reiterat

That the situation was too highly dra

"We want our time, and we want it
now." he threatened. "We're going to
show you who bosses this river before
we're- done with you!"
Fallon shouldn't have gloated; he
shouldn't have threatened. And Shayne
shouldn't have smiled. Steve had slip
pea the latch loose. Now he swung
open the door.
"Call for your time at the Morrison

The big, dreamy eyed man was hard

the door. And Steve treated his de
parture kindly. is h? hd alsys.treflt
pd his prese'a'p.
Outside, where Shayne and Fallot!
bad picked themselves up Big Louie
.. -i ...
levitated and fumbled in his pocket
n ith a cold crumped hand. He deliv
ered t lie letter for Stephen which had
been intrusted to him by Miss Sarah.
There are many men like Big Louie
wlio are pitifully faithful until events
outstrip their intellects. Steve was
sorry for hiui, and a half hour later,
after he had read Miss Sarah's prim
note requesting his presence at dinner
tit 7:.J0 Christmas eve, he grew sor
rier still while he watched the ill as
sorted trio meet once more, blanket
packs upon their backs and snov. shoes
on their feet. Big Louie had joined
the other' two from the direction of the
stables. There were words between
them, for Steve saw the huge man's
arm lift to strike Shayne to the ground
anl then drop harmlessly back to his
side. And Steve knew what that bit
of pantomime meant. Big Louie had
been to bid his team goodby. There
was a smudge of brown sugar across
his coat, though the . watcher was too
f&r away to see that. But he knew
that Big Louie had been crying, knew
that Shayne had smiled. It was the
second time that Shayne had smiled
that evening his second bad mistake.
Long after they had disappeared into
the north toward the Reserve com
pany's camps Steve wondered that it
had not cost him his life.
.Miss Sarah's note which had been al
most a week on the way was very
primly correct, but the inevitable post
script which underran it sounded a
more intimate note.
"We are not excessively formal as a
rule, Stephen," she wrote, "so a din
ner jacket will be adequate. As I am
expecting two other guests besides
your friends, Mr. Morgan and Carrot t
Devereau, I must ask you to let no
business matters interfere with your

who those other guests would prove to
be. Miriain Burrell, he knew, had nl

be the saddest Christmas end the mer
riest that she had ever known, giving
as respective reasons her inability to
be with umi ail(l luc fac't that she was
so entirely his. Because he would not
let himself hope this time he was not
disappointed, or at least so he told
himself, when he found only Dexter
Allison with Caleb the next afternoon
near 0. jAnd on a sudden thought his
eyes went roving around the room
then, looking for Archibald Wicker-
sham. But Miss Sarah gave him no
i time for a protracted scrutiny.
"Your room is ready, Stephen." she
told him and steered him toward the
stairs. "Y"ou have an hour in which
to dress, and you know already that
I am old maidenishly .strict."
And then, three-quarters of an hour
later, when ho had dressed and turned
to the stairway Barbara was there
at the foot of the flight waiting for
him to appear. In a little low pink
satin gown that made rounded her
slenderness made her appear even
smaller than she was she gave him
an elaborate courtesy from the main
floor and flung up at him her laughter.
"Merrv Christmas. Sir Galahad!" she
Steve, who was only dimly aware of
the fact that Garry and Fat Joe had
arrived, the latter guilty of his first
dinner jacket and enormously proud of
hi guilt, stood looking at Barbara
while she was chattering at him with
out hearing distinctly a word, she
"You look as though I were a
wraith," the girl accused him. "Am I
so pale after a few weeks of sophisti
cated city air?"
"I thought you looked like shall I
tell you what I thought?"
"Most ertainly." she was forced to
insist. "Wasn't it a bald enough invi-
tation for a pretty speech?"

discomfiture. Fat Joe leaned over and
"What'd 1 tell you?" he demanded.
What'd I tell you Say, ain't he
working well tonight?"
There was no keeping the girl within
doors after dinner was over. She ran
upstairs and changed into moccasins
and white blanket coat and skirt that
.arely met the moccasin tops halfway.
nd Steve, who had changed, too. and
was waiting for her when she came
down, had kuolted a crimson scarf
about the middle of hisbelicd jacket

The man and girl climbed far that
night in quite unbroken silence. They
had reached the crest of the first hill
and stopped with the higher ridges in
front of them, black bulks filigreed

that she would have to make him tallr.

thought only to vwing back again just
when she was beginning to feel that
she had lost the thread of inference- to
point his argument with parnl'els that
were new and delightful wisdoms to
her ears. But tonight his grave voiced
divergences oftener than not left her
thoughts behind his thoughts.

thong slipping from one webbed foot.
Pelow them stretched a plain of shim
mering frost points, bounded by iu
;;crutab!e walls of black timber. Some
where within the warmer heart of a
swamp a fox yapped hungrily: some
where within her own heart his whim

of the mystery of his wilderness its
friendship for those who love it its
implacable enmity for those who do
not understand. And he looked up just

things," was all she could think of to
say in reply.
But then, rising, he Hung back his
head and shook himself as if throwing
off a burden t'jo restraining and irk

that minute until he loosed her feet
from the snowshoes he was inor; like
her ' blue flannel and corduroy" lover
again. But his attack no longer iuade
her fear herself.
"If I cared for you, yes," he made
her admit before he would let her go
in that night. "If I cared for you my
engagement to no man could .stand in

know I do not care."
She had seen him grave with duubt
that night; seen him light to shake it
off. There was doubt in his answer
"Because I am not" But he could
not force himself to ask it.

would demand the woman should care

The Visit cf .Mr. Finch.
Mr. Finch, the great temperance
red-ribbon man, closed his labors here
en Sunday evening lat, by talking
to an audience which packed Fitzger
ald hall full. No more can it be sail
that only nigger minstrels or a schoo
exhibition can induce Plattsmouth to
turn out in force. A little, pale, over
worked temperance lecturer brought
thm all out. old and young. That's
saying a good deal for Mr. Finch.
Further, over ;.8'" persons, male and
fcma'.e, have taken the red ribbon an.
signed a pledge to abstain from al
alcoholic drink as a beverage.
Three hundred eighty-four dollars
and fifty-three cents in cash was
raised in all, which after paying the
expenses of the lecturer, hall, etc
leaves about 200 for the purchase of
a library and the cr-tablishmcnt of a
vending room. We understand Mr.
G:cs.ory has offered the use of his
east front room on the ground floor
and a committee of the red ribbon
brigade have the matter of organiza
