The train Kathered way. The rush
of air increased. A hail of pelting
grit began to sing round him, search
ing every inch of his body. The
rattle, crash, and shriek of the wheels
blended in a roar that stunned him.
But still ho clung on. His eyes were
closed. The skin of his cheekbones
was stretched like u niembrune. Ills
nostrils were clogged with cinders
and tilled with the stench of hot oil
from the journals. Hut he clung on.
Crosswise In his fast-clenched teeth
he held the bank-notes.
So, through the night, an Inch
from death, he rode. And In the gray
light of the dawn he dropped from
his place In the same city, in the
same yards, almost in the same place
where he had slipped Into the box
car half a day before.
Totteringly he crept out Into the
streets and set his face toward the
business part of the town. Ills mind
was made up. The wages of sin were
death; who should know It better
than he. Ho would go back and con
fess. Perhaps the bank might be
merciful. Surely he had been pun
ished enough. At any rate confes
sion would save him from the charge
of murder. His half-numbed brain
failed to realize that the tragedy at
the old jail would seem very clear
to those who discovered the bodies
of the giant and the hunchback, and
that there was nothing to connect
him with either death. Ho was
going back. Jail seemed to htm a
haven of refuge.
The wait till the bank opened did
not seem long. When nine o'clock
struck he was tho first to enter and
go to the paying teller's cage.
He laid down the bank-notes. "I've
brought them back," ho said,
The teller picked up the notes
curiously. Then a look of recogni
tion came upon his face. "HeavenB!
Hut they're filthy," ho exclaimed. "I
guess they went through tho fire all
right. Where did you find them?"
Ford's lips moved, but ho said
nothing audible. The teller looked
at him curiously. "I was looking
over them when the lire occurred,"
he began, "and
"Yes! Didn't you know wo had a
small fire here about three o'clock
yesterday? 1 couldn't find them aft
erwards, and supposed they had
blown out of the door. I was just
wondering what I could say to the
Secret Service men when they came
after them at noon."
"Tho Secret Service men!"
"Yes!" The teller stopped. Light
was dawning upon him. "Good Lord!
You didn't think Whew-oo! No!"
ho went on slowly, eyeing the cring
ing figure before him with pitying
eyes. "They're not real. They're
counterfeit. The Secret Service men
brought them In for me to look over.
They are coming for them at twelve
o'clock. You've saved me a tot of
embarrassment. Perhaps" his hand
went to his pocket doubtfully.
Ford shook his head. Then he
thrust his hand in his pocket and
searched a little. At last he drew
out the check that had taken him to
tho bank the ' afternoon before.
"Could you cash this two-dollar
check for me?" he asked plaintively.
"I I need tho money."

the pack mules were slow. Hefore
dark he would be on the high road,
and after that he could not lose his
way. After all, perhaps it was bet

trust to rousing the one tavern of the
It was after midnight when his
task was accomplished, and having
seen to the accommodation of a very
tired and hungry horse, Stranlcigh
threw himself upon the bed to which
he was shown by a sleepy man. He
had had finite enough equestrian ex
ercise for one day.
Ten o'clock had struck next morn
ing before he woke, and went down
to breakfast. Ills mind was now
clear as to what he meant to do. To
avoid meeting Uicketts was Impossi
ble; of thnt he was certain. His first
object, then, was to draw a red her
ring across the trail, so he inquired
from the hotel keeper tho where
abouts of KIcketts' otllce, and was di
rected to It.
He crossed the street and ascended
a stair. Ricketts kept neither clerk
nor ofllco-boy, so Stranlcigh knocked
at tho door, and was grullly com
manded to enter.
CILAS A. K1CKHTTS was seated at a
large table strewn with books anil
legal-looking documents, and ho
stared In astonishment at tho figure
which presented Itself. He, llko tho
men on the ranch, had never seen
such a costume before.
"Are you Mr. Uicketts?" asked his
"I am, sir.
"My name Is Stranlcigh. I took
tho liberty of calling upon you to
learn, If possible, tho whereabouts of
Mr. Stanley Armstrong."
"Why should I know anything of
his whereabouts?" demanded Rick
etts, still more grullly.
"Permit me to explain "
"N'ow, before we go any further,"
interrupted the lawyer, "I want you
to know that this Is a business office;
I'm a business man, and my time is
valuable. I thought when you came
In that you were a client. If you
have come hero for gossip, I'm not
your man. I have my own affairs to
"You state your case very clearly,
Mr Rlckt-tts. and I ngratulate your
clients. My own time is far from
precious; I'm here for sport. Tell
me, just how valuable is your time?
What Is your fee for an hour's con
ference?" "It depends on tho business trans
acted." "I can't agree with you, Mr. Rick
etts. An hour is an hour. I want
to buy sixty minutes of your time
and attention. What do you ask for
"Five dollars!" snapped Ricketts.
Stranlelgh drew forth a five-dollar
bill, and placed it on the table.
"May I sit down? he Inquired. "No
healthy man should be tired In the
morning, but I had a long horseback
ride yesterday, and an Indifferent
night's rest last night."
"Where did you come from?"
"I have been living for tho past
few days at Armstrong's ranch."
"Ah, you're tho man that was shot
a time back?"
"Yes; I was mistaken for your esti
mable sheriff, I understand. You see.
I camo from New York with a letter
of Introduction to Mr. Armstrong. I
was told that I might enjoy good fish
ing and a little shooting, while Arm
strong was described as a most ad
mirable guide to these sports. I
waited at the ranch day by day,
hoping Armstrong would return, but
nobody seems to know where he Is,
so I came out here, hoping to get
Into telegraphic communication with
him. I'm well enough now to take
part In the chase, and I don't like to
return to New York without having
had any sport."
"I still don't understand why you
come to me about the matter," re
turned Uicketts, suspiciously.
"I was told by his daughter that
Armstrong had written you. She
does not know in tho least where he
Is, and so on the chance of your hav
ing received a recent letter, I have
called to Inquire."
"I see. Armstrong's letter to me
was written from Chicago. It was a
request for money. I had already
loaned him a considerable sum, and
was unable to meet his further de
mand. I answered to this effect, but
have heard no more from him. You
don't know the date of the last letter
his own people received from him'''
"Yes; I have the letter with me,"
