IVIten Helen Holme took the dny key
at Signal the little office had already
passed from the quiet kind to the re
morselessly active kind of thoHe small
way stations that drive Innocent men
mad. Two rival line, maintaining large
construction camps and getting all their
supplies through Signal station, were en
caged in a race to build a mountain
cut-off-and a considerable one. Despite
nil the help Lyons, the overworked
agent, could give Helen, he found tha
tasks of her day about all that her
strength would compass. There were
little moments of respite. The railroad
men were, every one, considerate of her.
Nor could Helen, situated as he was,
escape occasional office visit from Sca

Amos Rhinelsnder. sitting at his dusty
and littered desk, stared at the abrupt
communication. Bower was his friend;
the executive committee of the board
were with him thts he felt assured of.
But somewhere Influences must be at
work against him. He suspected Capella,

Helen wa: too upset to speak for a
minute. For her, ao much depended on
the success of her own road. In reaching
the mountains with a cut-off first.
Rhlnelander, worried though he was,
tried to cheer her up. Spike outside
listening, gathered that Rhlnelander was
on his way to the city. He hung around
j the - platform -till the local . passenger

and. mingling- with Seagrue men,

Their confab was broken in on by one
of the newspaper men who had a print
of the photo he had taken of Seagriifc
at his desk. Seagrue Inspected this with
the greatest pleasure, "fine!" he ex
claimed. ' "Good' picture!"
A whimsical idea seized him. He wrote
a word or two across the back of the
print and recalled Spike. "Take this
over to Helen Holme. Give it to her
1 with my compliments." So saying he
turned to the photographer.
Spike's reception at the station was
always a chilly on. This time Helen
took his message and dismissed him be
fore she opened - the envelope. When
she saw what feagrue had sent she wa
angry. Her first Impulse wa to tear
the hateful print Into two. Instead, she
contemptuously Impaled it on a steel file
near at hand. A moment later, removing
the print to file her message, she looked
at the picture again. Her attention was
attracted to a paper lying on Seagrue's
desk. It had been caught by the camera
lens. The longer she looked the more
carefully her eye fixed on this object
revealed In the photograph. Very curi
ous now, Helen opened a drawer, took
from it a reading glass and studied the
contents of Seagrue's desk. Her heart
almost stopped beating, as she realize"
that her suspicious must be correct.
With the aid of the ordinary glass she
could plainly see the survey that had
been tolen from her father library.
Helen looked toward Seagrue' camp.
It was there even now, and If she could
recover the precious find It was not too
late to save her own Interests as well
as those of her good friend, Amos Rhlne
How could she recover It? With fast
kindling hatred of Its dishonest posses
sor, a dozen project for regaining her
own flashed acroas her mind. The more
she thought the more Impossible ft
seemed to devise any scheme that could
be carried 'out In time to help Rhine
lander's fight that nlsht at Oceanside.
But what Helen coula not devise her
self wss being already devised for her.
Following up what Spike sn uncon

door, caught her,' picture 4n hand. He
walked forward pleased. It was not hard
for Helen to counterfeit an embarrass
ment: nor was It In the least Unbecoming
to her. To Seagrue her look came like
a burst of sunshjne after many chilling
storms. "What do you think of my con
struction headquarters?" he laughed.
Helen's gaxe rested modestly ' on er
table. She seemed t contemplate the
picture with a quiet pleasure. Then sho
looked slowly up at Seagrue. "This doesn't

drawled the words the very least bit

For an effective moment she hesitated.
"I couldn't possibly," she declared with
decision, but she allowed a note of regret
to linger an Instant In the tone of her
explanation 'and glanced around. "No ona

"Well, but what time do you get off?''
asked Seagrue feverixhty.
"Oh, not for a long time yet."
His hopes were burgeoning fast. "See

dinner with roe. Come. do. I 11 show you
what can be done without preparation."
She regarded him with an expression
that indicated how completely such a
proposal shocked her. She struggled sn

rilng full and Into a clear ky. flooded
the landscape. And after Helen's un
easiness at the strangeness of her sltua
tlon had worn off. she was ahle through -
out the trying hour with Seagrue In his
hut to wear her mask of languid Interest
successfully. The table was served with
surprising delicacies and a plentiful array
of wines was in evidence. Yet, to an in
nocent Intriguer, a whole hour never went
so slowly, nor wss appetite ever more re
luctant than that of Seagrue's guest.
Though she went through the form of
eating and assumed a carefree air, his
food choked her. His wines she persist
ently declined, but that did not dismay
Seagme. who drank quite enough for two.
Where could the urvey be now? wa
the question recurring always to Helen's
mind. Toward the close of the dinner
Seagrue, rising, unlocked his desk for a
flask of Chartreuse. There, lying In the
corner exactly where she had seen It,
Helen again beheld the survey, a blue
print beside it. Seagrue was pawky
enough to close and lock the desk after

asked him for his keys. Seagrue was in
no position to refuse so Intimate a re
quest. With an. air of camaraderie ho
handed them over and Helen pushed back
the cover of the desk. But as she did so
Seagrue threw his arms around her. She
struggled indignantly, but could not feet
away. For a moment there was a fierce,
struggle. Then with a superhuman effort
he tore herself free, caught up tho first
thing she could lay her hand on tt' hap
pened to be a bronie match tray and
struck Seagrue across the forehead.
He went completely over, leaving Helen
horror-stricken at what sue had done.
She listened. Outside she heard no sound.
Seizin the blue print that lay under her
hand, she gained the door and ran out
Just as Seagrue regained i his feet. She
had resolved to flag the Limited. Hardly
touching the earth she dashed to the sta
tion, hurried, to the key and telegraphed
"Have blue print of survey. Will be on
Limited. HELEN." .
It was not too soon. Through the win
dow she saw Seagrue rushing down the
platform. She slammed the office door
shut 'and locked It. Seagrue threw him
self viciously ugalnst it. The lock held,
but she must get away at once. There
was a window in the freight houiie and
h . , h frelaht room. Seagrue
had snatched no a stone. He reached the
operator's win low only to see Helen,, who
had sprung through the freight house
window, running up the track. He fol
lowed her at top speed. Intent on escap
ing, she gave no thought to where she
was running; It was only to get away
from her hated enemy and save what s'ic

through a grove of scattered oaks that
fringed the hills above the sea, on and on
she ran, until breath and strength were

At no great distance from where she

out losing a minute, Helen spread the

the motor lock and turned the launch
engine over. She knew the motor well;
it was a powerful' I.oew Victor, and after
hrr srctind effort It hummed like a dy
namo. While it was wurming up alio
cut the hawser. Seagrue easily suspected
site meant to get to Rhlnelandcr nt
Oceanalde. He looked ai his watch. If
be could catch the Umlted he could
still reach the city ahead of her. Ex
asperated and out of breath he hastened
back to vamp, routed out hi chauffeur
and took tils racing car for the station.
Hardly a mlnuto was left to him and
his ho of reaching a point where lie
could flag the through train vanished

man to speed, he gained the hlKhway
paralleling the railroad track, and as
Ihe Umlted shot by. Scngrue. with all
the power tliat could be got out of his
motor, actually held for a time abreast
of it Helpless with rag, he saw the
last car pulling gradually past and,
furious at being balked, he stood up on
the seat and aa the car drew past him,
ho Jumped over the rail and landed on
the observation platform.
Helen was pushing the launch toward
Oceanside. The ocean below the bay
laps almost the edge of the railroad
track, and her heart sank as she looked
back and saw "the night train tearing
up the track and i rapidly overhauling
her. Instinct told her that Seagrue
would somehow board that train In sn
effort to get to the city first. - As the
engine drew nearer, she picked up a pair
of glasses and leveling them on the cab
discovered George Btorm on the right
side. She waved a signal flag fran
tically at him. but his eya were glued
on the track ahead. ' Then, as if by an
inspiration, she seized the cord of the
ulr whistle at her hand and In the Morse
code signaled for help. Storm turned
his head and looked back questlonlngly
along his train,; then up at hi own
whistle. The signaling continued and
his attention was finally drawn to the
launch, now dropping behind the train.
Helen caught up her signal flag again.
In a flash he recognized her,' and calling
his fireman over, thoy listened to her

First be cheerful. Yours Is not the
hardest part In the world, although It's
pretty bad sometimes. It's much worse,
really, to go out and seek your living.
Every day Is a struggle; even If you've
got tho work you must be one better
than someone else tn order to keep It.
And there are women who have work to
day, but can't be sure of It tomorrow.
And )hey are not charwoman. More
over, you have the satisfaction of know
ing that you are of uso In the world;
every stroke of work you do, every
stitch you put In counts,
"They couldn't do without me," you
sy to yourself, and truly. The girl out
tn the world wonders sometimes what
she is for. It is not quit satisfactory
to be told that you are building your
own soul; a woman somehow wants to
build someone . else's. That you can do.
You are autocrat in your own home, the
"Mary" and the "Martha1" too.
Then be practical. It la surprising the
number of women who are not.
If you've got to do your own work you
must suit yourself to the necessities ot
the case. You wouldn't have a servant
who did her work any way, therefore be
as strict with yourself, A little method
goes a long way. Map out your work
and stick to It. Likewise, dress for the
part. A short skirt, a neat blouse and a
big apron are necessities.
Now, facing the day with a stout heart
and a workable plan, be patient.
Things are certain to go wrong some
times or other. Children will be chil
dren, and tradesmen are bound to live
up to their reputation. And, remember,
work never killed anyone; but worry Is
responsible for heartaches and hesd
aches, brain fever, tnnacy and suicide.
Another thing It won't matter tomorrow
that Johnny forgot to wipe his feet, or
that Simpson didn't send the potatoes.
Take care to sell Simpson what you
think of him, and spend a little time
teaching Johnny how to repair the dam
age; In all probability neither Simpoi
nor Johnny will offend again. Worry Is
