CHAPTER IX roj-nrcTED.
Dr. Dubette was an Elder, havmr received
the Aaremc pnesthoo-i m the House of En
dowments at Salt Lake Cty. and at meet
ings often sought with fiwery and vehe
ment clauses to more deeply imbed the sa
cred doctrines of tithmg. polygamy, blood
atonement and special revelation m their
minds. He worked hard for the church and
had been -prospered": four wives and the
best property in the town, save the Bishop s.
heme the result, which was nvt so bad.

jealous of apjtasy than he. cz more alive

and four entrances, one to each wife's
anartments; m short the form of dwelling
usual with the prosperous Mormon. Some,
however, though this arrangement was
quite convenient for the husband, found it
scarcely permissible owinc to the unnatural
and heartbreaking condition at work, and
had smail houses m different quarters of
the town But mot often, for the- poor

Thus he rambled on. failing into a fit of
coughmz now and then, and sojn Trean
came mto the kitchen by the back door and
beran building a fire. A glance through
the door showed her the injured man lying
quietly v.tth eyes closed, but breathing hard,
and with a soft but anxious expression en
her face, she went about her work. Pres-
entiv Dubette came bustlm

Elehard. with pain in his eyes, gave him a
searching look, then turned them on the ox

m the bim square face, and Elehard put out
his hand and whispered, hoarsely: "Get
these broken ribs oil from my heart soon, if
you cam sir, the pressure suffocates me."
" Yes. sir."' said the yctmc fellow, with
eager kindness, and all set to work. Two

mountains Beam, who was watching be

in his chair A moment afterward, the
sound cf a dress, slidmz down the little
stair, touched his ear. and Trean entered.
She glanced at an old clock on the mantle:
it wa five o'clock.

with silver and streiving their dripping

itself, a pjund and open furnace door into a
great cloud of fire, was heaving over
Gravs Head, and he turned and went oa.
When Elehard opened his eye a curtain
had been lowered that the rising hood of
light might not come m upon him. and
Trean was moving softly across the room
toward the kitchen For a moment he
turned hi eyes enquiringly about, then, re

salutation came to las lips, but tne girl had
passed into the kitchen, and he lay awhile

smile of amusement and gratitude crept
over Elehard :ace.

not come m yet. and the
old man lit his
pipe and. with line ,ments grown benignant
from the mild intoxicant, talked on.
After a time the girl's footsteps could b? '
heard rnovms about the kitchen, and
presently she called her father quietly and
he tvent in to her. In a moment he came
back, bearinr a square kneadin aboard cov
ered with a white cloth, and upon which in
clean dishes rested a baked trout, baked
potatoes, staiming coffee, toast, a saucer of
fresh lettuce, a t-ny dish of yellow butter,
a tumbler of cream, and by the plate a
bunch of flowers. The injured man's eye
turned gratefully toward the kitchen door
when he looked at this.
Your daughter is very rood. he saii.
with something like a lump rising into lus
"Yes. few are more so. I hev an idee.
She ken fix t snack of vittles "at a'most

the kneadmg-board carefully on a chair by
the couch and helped Elehard to the food-

kitchen and ate his breakfast with Trean.

iaseed mountain gap in the west rolled
slowly out of the vlley. drawing its back-

out of the long vale after it. the daughter

and rest. But she had no heart for the
needle, and sat with her fine, strong head
setting sun that lit two tiny fires deep back
m the blue darkness of her eyes, or were
they sparks that her heart sent up! All day
her blood had stirred with a faint and sweet
delizht. and now. when she thought of the
grateful approving look in the stranger's
eves, the same soft uelicat seemed to
spread through all
being. For a mo
hfe. the shadow of
meat the poverty of
a dreadful future, and all her heaviness of
spirit, seemed to sink away from her. But
there below her m the valley were the
cables cf Bishop Parley's house gazing an-
'rnlv toward her. and bevond them two oten
doorwavs in the house where Orson Beam
lived with his widowed mother looking sor
rowfully up to her. and the night
old darkness flowed over her agat;

In the eveninc. after

like tread, came m at the doorway of the
Hartman home. On the threshold he
stumbled slightly and hesitated, them with

"How do vou feel bv this time!" asked

up. Let me thank you for your kindness
last night, and for the pleasure your com

doing wonders for me." flashing his
large eyes in her direction, with an admir
ing smile, -and I have really begun re
gretting already the necessity of getting
well, and losing so much that is pleasant.
"You must not hurry." stammered
Beam, while Trean's eyes were fixed upon
her work, with a tremor of almost invisi
ble color fleeting up through the shadow
film that saddened her face.
"Yes. the doctor, who was here this
noon, says I can not safely go on for two or
three weeks. h; answered. "I am afraid

"If thev are anxious I guess I had better

"Oh. it will never do: you slept none last

"I slent some to-dav." going toward the
door with a feeble sort of laush

You are a very good friend." said Elehard.
with a fine warmth m his face, "you have
me at a disadvantage now. but sometime I
hone I mav nnd a chance to return vou
Good-night." and he tramped ueaviiy out.
When he had gone Elehard said, softly,
without turning hi eyes from a great
milky star that from over a far mountain
top looked in through the open door: "I

eyes filled and he sat a long time looking
through the cpea door into the soft dark
ness with his pipe unlit in his crumpled
hand. Soon Trean arose and went droop
