Setting the Stage.
Ili'Iti; aic two interviews
which should be mentioned
here If lor no other reason
than merely because they
were both so entirely the outcome of
Miss Sarah's Christmas party. Neither
of them was lonjr. The last one which
took jilace between Wiekershaui and
the girl lie w;:s to marry was the brief
er of the two. liut her prettily seri
:r.s nrcrument that the 1st of May was
too early a date for their woddiujr in
view of the work which he had to lo
and her own state f unprepa redness
left hiin so white of face that she felt
guiltily sorry for him for many days
to follow felt faultier still at the relief
she experienced when she had estab
lished that reprieve. The other inter
view was longer and took place days
earlier, but it was no more of a delight
to Archibald Wicker sham.
Iexter Allison had returned home al
most a week in advance of his daugh
ter, pleading stress of business, but in
trite of the demands upon his time and
attention he had found it impossible to
forget the ni-ht of the dinner, when he
had watched his daughter's eyes upon
Stephen o'Mara's face.
He had been troubled more than a
tittle .since his Christmas trip to Mor
rison. The niht ;-: fore New Year's
Wickersham was announced at 1. He
was thinking of ISarbara's mother
when he beckoned his guest to a chair,
shook his head over his red cheeks and
offered a cigar.
"Devilish cold weather,", he grunted
none too gia'iously, for he had not
wanted to be disturbed just then.
The younger man admitted that it
was. His mind plainly was not upon
the weather, but l.e found difficulty
in introducing a topic of his own choos
ing. Outspokenness had never been
no of Archie Wickersham's boldest
characteristics, so Allison assisted hini
now. Allison liked a man to be out
spoken. "
"Well." he demanded, "let's hear it.
What's on your mind?"
There are times when hatred will be
tray almost any man. Hatred now led
Wickersham to speak not wisely, but
with venom.
"I want you to refuse to renew your
name on the Hast Coast notes." he said.
"They are duo on the second."
Few men had ever said "I want you
to' to IexUr Allison and. as he put it.
"got away with it to any great ex
tent." And of all nights this one in
particular was the least likely to prove
propitious for such an attempt. That
was Wii'kersham's oversight.
"So:"' said Dexter. "So! Well, now
for your reason."
Wickersham had not learned until
after r.arbam's departure that she was
spending the holidays in Morrison, for
he had himself expected to be away.
And it is only fair to the girl to say
that' she had honestly forgotten to ap
prise him of hor plan, in her real ex
citement at going, but linding it out
for himself had not made the fact any
plcasanter to Wi -kersham.
"It should be clear enough without
explanation" he enunciated each word
nicely 'if you want that road they
are buiiding."
Allison glanced up, surprised at the
tone employed.
"Meaning of course I do," he mused.
"And yet and yet I don't know!"
Tear burned in the tall, thin man's
eyes that night fear that made his
hatred for the absent man who was
teaching him fear anything but a pret
ty thing to watch.
"I've tried to buy off their men." He
was holding himself with an effort that
irfndo hini tremble. "I've held up their
supplies on every track that we con
trol, but they've had the luck with
them. They've made up lost time by
working day and night. I've"
"You've set a drunken fool to steal
his plans," drawled the other with
deadly sarcasm, "like :i second rate
one night stand villain. Don't forget
tr mention that tool" His lounging
lrdy shifted a little.
"Archie do you remember what I
t 'ld you nlnuit that woods rat, as you
called him once? Did I tell you that
he would tight? Well, listen, and listen
closely, while I repeat it for you. He
han't even warmed to it yet!"
Wickersham went yellow- at that, but
his icy self control held firm. He did
not break into vituperation this night,
lis smiled, though his voice was only
it whisper.
Men have dropped out of sight be
lore now in those woods," ho husked.
' I'll win or I'll see that he lies and
rots in one of his own sink holes."
A big
at times
voice is a wonderful weapon
Allison's Looming bass made
Wickersham's threat seem only mean
:id -hollow when the heavy man leap
ed to his feet and shook a finger under
that high bridged nose. 4
"No, you won't!" he snapped. "No.
you wou't! And if I didn't know, after
hearing ou talk, that you tavea't stuff
enough in you to dac;5rcu3 I'd fix
you to you'd be in no condition to
bushwhack anybody for the next six
luontLs. I'm in a bad jnopd toniaht.
Drop "out dTsight.-eh?" You'll play this
fair fair at least as I see it by my
Standards, and they are better stand
ards than yours. You've come dictat
ing to me, ordering me to slip a knife
into their backs. Are you that kind of
a sneak? Did you think I was? Now.
listen again, and listen well, for I
mean "What I say!
"I want that railroad if the man who
is building it is too weak to keep me
from taking it away from him. Hut
if I don't get it on such a basis I'll
know that there is a man at the head
of it who is big enough to take care of
my share of it. Have you got that?
Very well. And now go back to your
melodrama if you want to. Steal his

every inch of his construction that is
your job and I'll still insist that it is

May. But it's you and O'Mara from
now on, Archie. I'll be a spectator
now. And, by gad, don't you ever
conic- aear me again with a .request'
that 1 don't you ever let me bear you
threaten that 7ju"
Allison's face was suffused before he
finished, and Wickersham, astounded
past utterance, slid from hi chair
away from that flourishing hand which
had become a fist. It was no scene
to take place between a man and his
prospective son-in-law. liealizing that.
Allison tried to laugh deprecatingly at
his temper.
"Go out and get him, Archie," he in vited.
"I'll be watching, don't doubt
that. And I know how much you
want to win. It's a bigger stake than
most folks realize!"
The same day that more than half of
O'Mara's men went on strike and de
serted to the reserve company's pay
roll the- news reached Allison that a
trainload of laborers had been shot
in to take their places thot-e very
types of laborers which Steve him
felf had warned Elliott would not last
an hour in the event of trouble. For
a week Allison wondered that there
was no clash between the displ.u-ed
men who believed that the river was
theirs alone and this new corps which
Garry Devereau was handling at the
lower end of construction, not by phys
ical prowess, as Fat Joe had ruled,
but just as surely and all because, as
Joe himself put it, he could damn a
i man merely by bidding him good morn
"Honey crossed north today to have
a look at his winter cut," Joe would
observe to his chief at supper at
Thirty Mile, and before the night was
many hours older Allison, too, ii Man
hattan, would have learned by wire in
less picturesque phraseology that
Archie Wickersham was missing no
"They have now finished hauling
their logs to the river," Joe told Steve,
one night after a prolonged scouting
trip. "They are turning their atten
tion to their float dams now."
And when that news was relayed to
the big man who never ceased to
watch he understood why there had
been no violence w hen the - rivermen
went on strike.
It was the bitterest January that
the hill country had known in twenty
years, but mile by mie that month the
twin line of steel crept steadily into
the north under the urgings of Garry's
smooth voice. The snowfall for Feb
ruary broke all records for half that
period, but Steve, with his handful of
men at Thirty Mite, put his piling
down. Amlthen it rained it rained
until small brooks ran torrents and
th? tiver tumbled white and thunder
ous its entire length. 1
The saow went off the last of March
that spring, and the gorges could not
carry away the water. The sun turn
ed summer hot. It burned the higher
ridges dry while the valleys still lar
hidden in flood. It was August tem

when Stephen O'Mara stood and

There was no man among them that
day who did not show upon his face
the strain they had been under. They
were few, they were unshaven ami
dirty and lean as hungry hounds, but
they were the men whom Steve had
once bidden Hardwick Elliott to
watch, once they had begun to seeut
combat. Fat Joe was no longer plump.
Steve was worn down to actual thin
ness. And it would have taken a care
ful eye to have selected the chief from
their ranks that Sunday.
The huge timbers had dropped into
place like bits of jig sawed puzzle. At
3 in the afternoon, too tired both in
body and soul for elation, Steve watch
ed them drive home the last spike and
heart their hoarse effort at a elisor.
He had turned to start toward his
shack, not like a man who knows that
the end of a well nigh hopeless task is
in sight, but like a beaten man. The
1st of May meant more to Steve than
any clause of the Last Coast compa
ny's contract could convey. He had
not had even one letter since he put
her upon her train. Wickersham's iin
pearance on horseback at the head of
the valley, jacking his way around the
flooded meadow, halted him in his
heavy footed climb. A whistle shrill

Anna-Doyle-Davis Held in St.
Louis as Companion of
John J. Davis.
St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 24. The beau
tiful dream ol Mrs. JS.nv.-j. Doyle-Davis
of 2723 Douylas street, Omaha, that
the would retrain her broken health by
an open-air tour of eastern Kansas and
Missouri in an iiutomobile. was shat-
tered to lay when she was arrested in
a room at .'5141 Washington avenue, as
the companion of John Joseph Davis,
1512 Ncith Twenty-eighth street,
Omaha, and Charles English, alias
John Alfred Lewis, whose attempt to
rob a drug store at 3201 Olive street
ycsterclny rr.orninp: resulted in the
death cf the former and the serious
wounding cf his companion.
Mrs. Davis was arrerted in a voi m
which she raid had been occupied by
her and English. In another room,
which she said was used by Murphy,
the police found a satchel containing
a large coil of fuse, several dynamite
caps, a bottle which had apparently
contained r.iti oglycerin and sixteen
cartridges of :'S caliber.
Murphy was shot down in his tracks
during the holdup by Sergeant John
riaharty of the i.aclcde station, and
English, alias Lewis, was ?eiiously
wounded bv "Francis J. Curran, 20

Although th.2 bandits reached St.
Louis, according to the admission of
English and Mrs. Davis, only last Sun
cay afternoon, from the amount of
ammunition found in Murphy's room
the police believe their intention orig
inally wa.; not to do any holdup work,
but devote their attention to safes.
No Relation to Dead Dandit.
iIrs. Davi.--, who claims to be no re
lation to the dead bandit, said she did
not know the men were engaged in
anv unlawful business.

ago in a chop-suey resort in Omaha,
and had seen him two or three times
"We left Omaha a week ago last
Friday,"' said Mrs. Davis. "At the
time English a.d:ed me if I would like
to take an automobile ride to Kansas
City. I had bec-nn poor health, hav
ing gotten out of the hospital only a
short time b?fore, and I thought the
trip would do me ?rood.
"We arrived i?i Kansas City Sunday
evening". English had $:0 when we
left Omaha, and we f-pent four days
in Kansas City. I did not have any
reason to believe that the men were
robbers. English was with me most
of the time and thy never talked
anything like crime before me.
"After remaining in Kansas City
for four days it was suggested that
we go to St. Louis, and we took the
overland trip here, arriving last Sun
day. "We obtained rooms at 3241 Wash
ington avenue.
"When I reached here I decided that
I had made a mistake, and English
told me to go home. I had packed up
my clothes and was ready to depart
Wednesday night, when he induced
me to remain with him a w hile longer.
I did remain over last night, but had
fully made up my mind that I would
go today or tomorrow."
T.Irs. Davis said she was 'married,
but estranged from her husband for
the last two years, during which time
she and her 4-year-old child lived with
her parent-. Mr. and Mrs. Edward
Doyle. She declared that she had not
the faintest idea of the profession of
her companions, believing English to
be the son of wealthy father, who
had promised to "set him up' in busi
ness, as he put it to her.
English remained at the city hos
pital today, a pri?oner. The hotly of
Murphy was unelaimen at the morgue.
Tho police will endeavor to have the
men identified through the Ucrtillion
bureau. Lewis was shot in the back
and is in a serious condition.
Left Omaha Three Weeks Ago.
Mrs. Anna Doyle-Davis left Omaha
three weeks ago. She packed her
trunk and sent it to. the Union depot,
inttndmg, according to relative?, to
leave for Hot Springs, Ark., on an
evening train.
The next the relatives heard of her
was last Saturday, when her mother,
Mrs. Edward Doyle, received a regis
tered letter from Kanras City. In the
letter were the trunk check and some
money to pay storage charges on the
trunk. The mother had the trunk
taken to her home.
In the letter to her mother, Mrs.
Davis wrote that she had taken the
trip by automobile at the last minute,
snd after arriving at Kansas City had
decided not to go on to 'Hot Springs.
She wrote that she would be home in '
a few days.
Mrs. Davis has been ill forseveral
years. Only last September she under

Davis was arrested in Omaha last
April on suspicion of being connected
with a gang of horse and automobile
thieves, but was released because of
lack of evidence. He went to Mon

say that they saw him in Omaha three
weeks ago. the day that Mrs. Anna
Davis left.

Milk in Winter.
Why do your cows give less milk
in winter than they do in summer?
Just because nature doe3 not sup
ply them with grasses and "jreen
food. But we have come to the as
sistance of Dame Nature with B. A.
Thomas' Stock Remedy which con
tains the very ingredients that the
Krcen feed supplies in season, only,
of course, in a more highly concen
trated form. .We guarantee that this
remedy will make your cows give more
mjij- and better milk with the same
j '
t teed.
