The Abduction of a Justice
By PHILIP VEEBILL MIGHELS
Dressed in her brother's clothing
as sh was, "Cowboy Maggie" (vault
ed agala to her saddle with familiar
"Seven miles we've come," she
rased, as she rode by "tho widow V
and guided her horse into Tarnahan
road. Then it's 30 more to make.
Ill beat them yet!"
Fifty yards beyond the fork of the
roads, her broncho suddenly shied at
a dimly seen object In the brush.
Maggie recognized a white calf. She
assured her horse with a touch and .a
murmur. Her quick eyes then dis
covered a number of other calves.
She knew the little band at once.
There were nine small heifers, the
property of Mrs. Jordan, "the widow."
"They're all I've got In the world,"
Mrs. Jordan had told her, smiling
through tears as she spoke, "for Hick
ey bought up the undertaker's bills
against me and took all my cows.
He'd have taken the calves, too, only
the lawyers made him stop."
"HIckey the miserable thief!" Mag
gie sputtered. "And to think of Ed.
Hickcy daring to marry Carrie Downs!
I don't see how she ever thought of
saying yes. But she shan't she shan't

Almost on the moment, a curse and
a shout, indicated that two or more
riders had discovered the calves,
doubtless through the shying of then
"Here, Skete, hold on," cried one of
the ilders behind her; "ain't these
them Jordan cattle?"
The girl recognized the nasal snarl
of youbg Hickey.
What answer was made by "Skete"
she could not determine. A murmur
represented the conversation of the
men. who had evidently halted in the
"Branded? like hell!" came the
high voice of Hickey again. In dispute;
"I tell you I saw 'cm two days ago,
and not a one of 'em ironed. Can't
nobody swear to a calf unless it's

ever seen. Here round 'em up send
"Can't do It alone," growled the oth
er. "You better come and help on the
Job, II yon want it done up so sud

his vicious horse toward a loitering
heifer. "I've got to git a move on now
to git to my wedding. I told you be

got to we've got to catch that train.
Bite 'cm! bite 'em! Hey there! Hush
The scurrying hoofs beat np a cloud
of col 1 dust, felt rather" than seen.
Maggie was tingling with indigna
tion. She had caught Hickey fairly in
the act of robbery; she bad heard him
confirm the maddening story tna't he
meant to marry Carrie Downs at day
light She was thrice more anxious
than hefore to fly to Tarnahan's and
save her friend, but Hickey would now
be there as soon as she. She would
have lo resort to some other plan to
stop the wedding.
Maggie fancied she could see old
Justice Carey cross as a badger, thin
as a knife, gray as the desert, standing
before Carrie and Hickey snapping out
the words of the sacred ceremony. He
was the only man within a radius of
100 miles who could perform the rite.
If he would only refuse, Ahe trick
would yet be won!
But she knew old Carey. She knew,
he would not refuse, not for love nor
money. He was crazed on the subject
of marrying anyone to anyone else.
He seemed almost to take a devilish
delight in tying together ill-assorted
couples. Then, like lightning, a thought
struck in her brain. It almost made
her reel with its force. But her wholo
horizon was cleared.
She vaulted up into the saddle. Not
a moment did she have to spare.
Brums leaped at the dig of her spurs
and tfiarted madly down the road.
Late as shd had started, and consid
erable as the distance was, over hills
and through swales, Maggie a little
before two o'clock in the morning
rapped on Justice Carey's door.
"You noisy idiot," chopped the voice
of the justice, who thrust his thin face
out into the darkness, "'tain't time
tain't time! What do you meaa?
Tain't time. I say! What do yon

about to batter the door again, when

demanded. "Didn't yon fetch me a

"Where you heading, young
man?" he said, dlsjoiatedly. "This
ain't the way to Tarnahan's Bar!"
"No, it isn't," assented, Maggie.
"Tt6n what what what what do

"Bat the wedding," cried the old
fiend; "the wedding this "
"There will not be any wedding,"
she told him, shortly.
He comprehended with pate, then,
that he, the high and mighty justice
of th-3 peace "in and for said county
and township," had actually, been ab
ducted bodily. In polyglot moods, of
rapid succession, he threatened, rant
ed, reasoned with his captor, and en
treated that she permit him to go aad
perform the wedding.
Maggie was as grim as she was firm.
Her horse was In a reeking perspira
tion, but she could not afford to spare
him cow. Straight away lata the
mounts ins she rode. Three miles from
Nicholl's she came upon the dim form
of a shanty, In a lonely ravine, far
from the traveled trails. It was ail
that remained of a mining excitement
which the hills had enjoyed. Here
she forced her prisoner to dismount,
after which she tied his hands behind
him, compelled him to enter the
shanty, and there secured his feet, in
a manner highly satisfactory to her
self. For the binding she employed a
slender tethering-rope which she car
ried m addition to her braided lasso.
Then she shut the door on a mixture
of threats, life sentences and pleadings
and started for Tarnahan's Bar. She
arrived there seme hours later dressed
in her own clothes.
"They had a great old time at the
Bar," said the girl, concluding her
story to her mother the following day.
"Ed. Hickey rode around after poor
old Mr. Carey like a rooster without
his head, got horribly drunk, and you
never saw Carrie cry so much in all
your life when I told her about Mrs.
Jordan's cattle. She cried and laughed
together. I wouldn't have believed a
girl could be so happy to give it; all
up after getting all hose lovely
dresses and presents. Poor dear Carrie
It'3 funny she didn't know better
herself, at first"
"But," said Maggie's mother, "I hope

Carey v.p there all this time, pining to
"Oh, no," replied the girl, "he go
loose and came in to Tarnahan's Bar
by himself late in the afternoon. Aft
er he told his story, they got up a
wonderful romance about a daring
young fellow who rode 70 miles, from
Pizen, in the night, and stole the Jus
tice tu save his lady-love from Hickey.
Some can him Hickey's rival, and some
call him Carrie's mysterious lover."

NORTH DAKOTA WHEAT CROP.
Will Lead Sister States by Yield of
Minneapolis, Minn. North Dakota
has this year the unprecedented total
of 100,000.000 bushels of wheat, a
record never before made by any
state. Minnesota, though growing in
wealth and importance with every
passing year, with bountiful crops of
wheat and other cereals, must surren
render the preeminence in wheat she
long held to her sister state. The
northwest showing is as follows:
North Dakota. 100.000,000 bushels:
Minnesota. 80,000,000 bushels; South
Dakota. 50.000.000 bushels; total. 230.
The Jones-lnglla report of wheat
production is in part as follows:
"Wo estimate the wheat crop of
the three states at 230.000,000 bnsbels
and the tots! spring croo cf the
United ft&ies at 301.000.000 bushels
The winter wheat production is esti
mated at 435.000.000 bushels, giving
a total for the United States of 726.

of spring and winter wheat the United
