They had been friends for close to
forty years, yet they were worse than

Caleb's tin-'cr had swung toward the
door in a gesture unmistakable. Alli

One after another they tried to per

He might liave comforted her. but
with no other statement could he have
told the trutL. lie failed also in his
effort to persi ade her to go to bed; he
had breakfast with Caleb, and she re
fused to eat. And she was still there
in her chair, asking only to be let alone,
when Carry Devereau and Fat Joe ar
rived. She rose and ran to meet the
latter, but the doctor who knew how
many such situations the piidry river
man had weathered, summoned him
immediately, and Barbara had to wait
an hour before .Toe came back down

Joe's sympathy was unspoiled by pro

me yet! Men pet well because they
are bound to pet well, or they die !o
cause it's their time to die and he's

Her hopeless face made deception im
possible, but Joe comforted her. just
t!:e same. He persuaded l;er to eat
with him. ar.d when he found that hia
conversation made the walt'az easier
for her. he waxed quite prrt-I:n:s.
"Why, he's been hurt aimo,-t as bac!
as this, once before." he rambled on.
"but he's still alive, ain't he?"
The girl's eyes livened at that.

"It ain't likely he would," the other
stated with Duality. "It was over a
woman, and not a particularly pretty
story, .any way you look at it."'
Her dark eyes widened. She bit her
lip. It came to her how little of his life
idie had shared.
"Oh!" she barely breathed. And
aca'm. falferinirly. 'Oh!'

judged that something was amiss. Ob
servation had never been a ilow or
painful process of concentration with
"He didn't even know who she was.
He'd never seen her before," quickly
he rut her right. "She was just a pub
lic danger, that was all. But a man
mistreated her. and Sieve, he just in
terfered" Indeed, Joe had found the way to
comfort her and still tell the truth,
evtn though he found it foolishly difii
cuit to swallow food and watch at the
same time the warmth which his
words kindled. So for an hour he lin
gered at t:ibie and told her many thiuus
concerning the man she loved which
she would never have learned from his
own lips. And it was Joe's jocularity
which in the end subdued her rebel
spirit. She yielded at last and prom
ised to go home and rest, but only after
he had promised iirst, ia a fashion
which could leave no doubt in her
heart, that he would come for her if
things grew worse.
Before she left him that morning she
told Joe of Big Louie, whom .she bad
had to lenve in the road, but he inter
rupted livr before she could finish.
They Lad already found Big Louie.
Then she gave him the note which tbe
had discovered crushed under Steve's
body. Thin Joe scanned ferociously: ho
bleached blue eves.
"Some one traced your name," he put
into words the first thought that Lad
been hers. "Some one who had your
signature to copy."
She nodded, whitely, in horror. JoC
folded the paper r.nd tucked it into a
"We can touch nobody," he averred
regretfully, "unless we catch Ilarri
gan." Caleb himself took Barbara home,
and on the way across the law u she
giggled suddenly at the funny way in
which the distance seemed to increase
and then lessen between her eyes cad
her feet. The grouud persisted in ris
ing to meet her, she said, until she had
to. cling to Caleb's arm. And the outer
steps proved difficult to negotiate. But
at the sight of her father sunk in bi
lence upon his desk in the ground floor
"office" she drew her hand from the
crook of Caleb's arm and went swiftly
across to him.
"Barbara," he besought her broken

She had to laugh again at the behav
ior of her feet as she climbed upstairs,
but her bearl seemed steady enough. It
was only after she had reached her
own room that she complained queru
lously of the failing lights. Miriam
had to help Ceciie undress and put her
On the floor below her father had
turned again to his desk, his head
bowed under his arms. And total
breakdown was imminent for Dexter
Allison when a hand touched awk
wardly his shoulder. He looked up
heavily to meet this time the eyes of
Caleb Hunter. Caleb stuttered furi
ously pt first, for sentimentality shamed
him. Then a happy thought showed
"Dexter, I secured a few sprigs of
very superior mint yesterday." He
made of it a ceremonial. "Do you
thiuk you would care to join me, sir?"
They had been friends for close to
forty years not because of common
tastes, but in spite of innate dissimi
larity. Dexter came to his feet. He
reached out and crushed the other
man's hand within his soft, white lin
gers. Nor was his reply quite accord
ing to formula.
"I don't mind if I do. Cal," he ac
cepted fervidly. "Thank God. I don't
mind if I do!"
Arm in arm they recrossed to the
white columned house. And they kept
close, each to the other, throughout the
hours of suspense that followed, tend
ing a potent though unconfessed reas
surance in such companionship.
Delirium crane again upon the sick
mat! who lay in the room which Miss
Sarah had always kept waiting for
him. Fever strode upon him. while the
girl who had brought him home slept
in complete exhaustion. At times
Steve lay quiescent, only muttering fit

Jtnd .7 had to exert every iron muscle
to hold him down. And always he
spoke Barbara's name. with a poignant
gentleness that left Miss Sarah on the
verge of collapse. But he continued
to live, through that day and the next
night, even when the doctor shook his
hea l and Fat Joe rose to go for the
girl. a he had promised he would, in
the last extremity. lie continued to
live, and with the coming of the second
dawn suddenly he was no longer de
lirious. Stephen O'Mara opened his
eyes and gazed feebly but very uirler
standingly into the eyes of Fat Joe,
who wv.s watching at that moment.
Joe trice1 to hush him. but he would
talk a little.
"I know." he pronounced each word
with calculated effort. "I have been
very sick, and T must not waste my
sncugtn. But I have to be clear, first,
on cn point. Have I dreamed it, Joe,
or or iid she tiring me home?"
With his voice alone, when all else
seemed failing. Joe had kept his friend
alive. The doctor believed it; Misa
Sarah knew it to be so. And first of
all Joe had to voice his thankfulness,
for it was an explosive thing.
"Didn't I tell her so?" he demanded
in his whining tenor. "Didn't I say so,
all along? And I let that doctor worry
me, just because he's got a diploma in
a frame, hanging on his Avail!"
Then he answered Steve's question.
"She found you," he said. "She
brought you home."
A long time the sick man lay and
pondered. And finally he found it pos
sible to smile.
"I have not cared whether I lived or
died," he said in little more than a
whisper. "All along I have seemed
to know how near I was to going
across, and I have been nenr to quit
ting at times. For I was happier than
I'd ever dared let myself be, before
and then, with the first shot that
dropped Big Louie. 1 knew" He
shook his head, still smiling vaguely.
"I Lave not wanted to live, but I am
looking at things more like a man
now. You need not worry any longer,
Joe. I'll sleep a little while, I think,
and then I'll put my mind hard on get
ting well, when I awake."
That marked the end of delirium,
and with sleep which came almost
while he wr.s tafklng the fever began
to abate. He "put his mind on get
ting well," when he awoke twelve
hours later. Strength was flowing In
a steady tide back into his body long
before Barbara's knees would again
bear her weight. For she had squan
dered her endurance without counting
the cost, and she paid the full penalty.

lis eye, when he was left alone. Fat
Toq had assured him that she had
brought him home, but Fat Joe, who
was : ever averse to anti-climax, had
told him no more than that. His ef
forts at entertainment were only the
more spontaneous those days because
of the soberness of his friend's face.
And then the same day that Joe raised
him against the pillows so that he
might watch a string of flat cars, high
filed with logs, roll into the yards, they
let her go to him.
Steve was listening to the shrill sa
lute of the whistle which l e knew was
McLean's pean of victory; he was smil
ing a little wistfully over the memory
which, with McLean, always recurred
to him, when he turned and saw her
standing on the threshold. She had
come on diffideut. mouselike feet. She
was watching him. And before be be
lieved it really was she. Barbara fal

It was only a wisp of a sound an
aching, throbbing bit of tenderness
lighter even than the breath that
"Steve!" she breathed again.
But thereupon, with a headlong little
rush that scartered spools of bandages
and rolls of lint and set the bottles
upon his table jingling dangerously,
she flew to him and came, somehow.
into his arms.
They had not told him at first he
could not speak. Dumbly he sat, his
face bowed upon that brown head ril
lowed in his arms. . She had told her
self that she was a woman now yet
her first words were all girl.
"Tell me Just once that I'm pretty,
she quavered. "Say that I am still
half boy to you!"
His tongue unsteadled with joy, he
told her again, as he had told her on
that other day, and. watching the old.
old wonder of her grow in his eyes, she
listened as though she were taking the
words, one by one, from his lips. But
there was nothing boyish in the crook
ed little arch of her mouth nothing
boyish in the depths of her dark and
brimming eyes. She remembered his
wincing shoulder tken Her Arma crept
higher about his neck. And now her
face was uplifted, and there was no
more need for words.
Afterward when they spoke of Big
Louie she loved him more for the sor
row which he did not try to hide.
From Fat Joe he had already learned
of Big Lome's last dereliction. Out of
a deeper silence Steve spoke gravely
an epitaph for the man to whom he
had been unfailingly kind.
"Most any kind of a failure can live."
he said, "but it takes a man to smiie

Leaders of both houses will en

frequent conferences to plan a pro
gram will be held as soon as the pres
ident indicates his desires. Besides
railroad legislation there is strong
public demand for some legislative
activity to curb the soaring prices of
food. And, in audition to appropria
tion measures which always take
time and must be passed, there are
other issues. The senate has the im
migration bill, the corrupt practice
bill further to limit campaign contri
butions and expenditures, the Webb
bill to grant authority to domestic
corporations for maintenance of col
lective foreign selling agencies, con

proposed and Senator Owen of Ok

No Holiday Vacations.
Hasty conferences of house leaders
today indicated that a "speed up"' pro

will be adopted with only slight
changes. Majority Leader Kitchin
joined with the speaker in declaring
that the usual long. Christmas holiday
should be dispen?ed with and an ear
lier meeting than noon, probably ?0
o'clock, set. No actice opposition to
the early meeting hour has appeared
but there is some discussion over the
proposed abolition of the Christmas
holidays. A compromise holiday of
one week, beginning the Saturday be
fore Christmas has been suggested.
Although food embargo proposals
are certain to create much discussion,
few leaders are inclined to believe that
any of them will be enacted into laws
Representative Kitchin thinks, too,
that investigation of the high cost of
living will be left to the executive de

It is regarded as doubtful that any
