And then Ilarriiran stood forth. Jaivz

Steve saifl. "Yen may be I do not

Like a blast of wrath O'Mara lifted
and struck him. Ilarrigan's hands had
nut left his hips before he met the
ground, and he was back on his feet
like a bounding ball, only to go down
again before the smashing impact of
, those blows. Caution he tried to use
in rising, and they searched out his
face, his chin, and drove Lira hither
and yon. Open tightin

pishing out bit the flesh of O'Mara's
templo--thcy tore 't!-e turf where his
face had been.
There was "madness in Harrigau's
hideous roarings of hate, madness in
his blind rushes, and his bull strength
availed at first. He weathered destruc
fion and managed to close again. This
time the lighter man was ready for

Harrigin came back and found him
blindly. Once his hairy hands search
ed O'Mara's face, and O'Mara's fore
head went wet with the agouy of fin
gers tearing at bis eyesockets. Drop

Coming up, be caught Harrigau's cbm
and turned him over backward.
llarrigau squandered bis strength in
drunken rushes, his breJth in screams
of hate. And now Steve was laughing
aloud, fie fccrSir that she was 'watch

ing, laiew what loathing was "in her
ej-es. And be he was a riverman!
Sobbing for air, dripping crimson from
forehead and shoulder, he set himself
and swung from the waist. Like a
pole axed ox Ilarrigan stopped as he
was lurching in. His mouth sagged;
his eyes flew wide in a fixed and stupid
stare. Then his legs folded under him
andJio swayed limply down. But that
blast of wrath would not lot him lie!
It raised him and beat him down
again; raised him and beat him down.
By his throat Steve swung him up by
throat and buckled belt. High over his
head he swung that bulk and lashed
forward from his heels. And Ilarri
gan went back to his panting follow
ers. Twisting and spinning, his body
swept Shayne and Fallon to the
Allison had not stirred, nor putty
faced Wickersham, nor the girl who
stood with hands nt breasts. And now
toward them Stephen O'Mara wheeled.
His legs "would fail him. and he
steadied them. Blood blinded him, and
he wiped it away. Swaying giddily,
he managed somehow a smile.
"Wickersham. I have met the roan
whom you hired to fight for you." he
called clearly, "and he has earned his
wage! Are you man enough to step
forward now and fight for yourself':"
Wickersham clucked drily in his
throat and lifted an elbow to shield his
face. Shrinking back behind the first
shelter that chance afforded him. he
put the girl between him and bis fear.
And then weakness seized upon that
sick and swaying man, but he spoke to
her to the unspeakable horror in her

watched now. They were sheep no
longer nor malcontents nor misled tools

that nameless man who was out upon
the jam. Vickersham's men were
back on the river, but that bridge
would continue to hold. And while
they worked, while Elliott and her fa
ther watched spellbound, bliudly Bar

what she was doing, and walked into
the brush.
The river was running clear by dusk
when they raised the first hue and cry
for her. It was dark when a runner

it until morning came. And when it
dawned and she waked dazedly while
he was preparing breakfast he bad fin
ished reconstructing many things.
Her eyes went from wall to Avail,
frightened still and juestioninir t first,
so he merely nodded and went outside
and left her to remember alone. Re
turning with wood on Ins aim. h
found recollection of much in her ga.e.
She was looking at the thru heeled,
buttoned boots before the fireplace, the
stockings and furred garments cleaned
of mud and dried on the 1 nicks Oi
chairs. A cloud of color stole up from
the blanket edge at her throat to the
line of her hair.
"Vou Avcre wet," he explained s im
ply . "and you were too spent to help
yourself. I could not let you sleep in
,"1 understand," her answer faltered
a little. "I was just thinking. I knew
such things happened, but I thought it
was only in books."
Drowsily she watched him bending
over frying pan and coffeepot, content
herself to lie and rest. Rut after a
time, with fuller awakening, the band
ace about his head claimed her atten
tion. To her it seemed impossible that
this smoothly shaven man in clean blue
shirt could b the same one who had
emerged from a struggle still sicken
higly brutish to her. involuntarily she
shuddered a little without knowing
that he watched.
"I am going to the spring for fresh
water," he told her then. "There will
be time for you to dress, and breakfast
will be ready when I come back."
Submissive before his tone she re
plied that she was hungry; that she
would be ready too. She bad donned
blouse and skirt and stockings and
id iocs and finished braiding her hair
when be re-entered. He showed her a
ti bashi outside filled with ic;v water
for her face and hands. And then lhcy

"I warned you you v.ouid wal:e sud

"Waking has been no sud:!cn thing
with me. 1 finished with dreams a
long time back, but you are what you
have bojui always iu my thoughts. It's
conditions i've waked to. not you!"
i With unwitting ' gi-ud'iiess he had
sometimes tpokeu to her. but never
with such coulraiiied vehemence.
"Why should I find' fault in anything
you hare df;xie cr failed to do?" he
demanded of both her and himself.
" Why shouid you be apologetic or xs-

"Not just a brawl." she contradicted
quickly, anxious to be understood:
Just oh, so needlessly brutal. At
first it left me only dazed and nause
ated, but after I had had time to think
I made myself see your side of it.
You must crush insubordination. And
still it seems r.s though there might
have been a less horrible way."
"He had balked my work," he told
her sternly. "He has fired upon me

and I've failed. And knowing that
my failure is not all my own fault is
not going to make it any easier for me.
You've taught mo loneliness I'm never
going to forget as long as I live, but I
don't love you any the less for thak I
dreamed big dreams for both of us."
His voice was dreary of a sudden. "I
promised I'd make these dreams come
true, because I thought my bfe could
be your life. I've not done so. That
thing could never bo. I've talked big
ger than I could practice, and that is
not going to help my self confidence
any. but as it stands now I can earn it
b'ck. I couldn't have done that if I
had married you and waked some day
to find you shrinking from me. It
would have killed it and my self re

out. "Can't I make you understand"
"You have made me understand till
I am sure,' he slated. "I am no longer
vexing myself with trivial things. You
have been unoer'ain. I have seen that.
You are certain now. Aud the funda
mental thing remains unchanged. In
me there is that man who once man
handled Ilarrigan and you didn't
want me to touch you! You don't have
to te'l me any more that you can't love
me. When you drew away from me,
that was enough."
She sat and watched him put the
room in order, and that hurt her more
than anything else, for be would not
let her help. He made her change her
high heeled hoojs for moccasins, which
he brought and laced upon her feet.
Rut the remainder of the day it was
the old Steve who helped her over the
bad bits of going and talked discon
nectedly of many things meanwhile.
And yet no longer the old Steve, who
had been so entirely her own. Hers
was the sad face when they entered
the clearing at Thirty Mite', and a
hoarse shout saluted her return. In
her father's embrace she clung and
wondered that she did not cry. And
