ft 38 GOODWIN'S WEEKLY. I
IHwj By Jack London.
Wt (Continued from page 12.)
W emptied, until, quickly, there was no more shoot-
Hj K ing. The young man was elated. Through that
il astonishing fiisillade he had come unscathed. Ho
I glanced back. Yes, they had emptied their mag-
jtHil azlnes. He could see several reloading. Others
Hw were running back behind the house for their
Hjpf " horses. As ho looked, two, already mounted,
m camo back into view around the corner, riding
fw hard. And, at the same moment, he saw the man
t , IK with the ginger beard kneel down on the ground,
! pHE level his gun, and coolly take his time for the
, Iw long shot.
1 , y The young man throw his spurs into the
jjS horse, crouched very low, and swerved in his
i vm flight in order to distract the other's aim. And
! M still the Bhot did not come. With each jump
' im of the horse, the woods sprang nearer. They
i Ira were only two hundred yards away, and still the
I H shot was delayed.
i!BJ And then ho heard it, the last thing he was
IB) ever to hear, for he was dead ere ho hit the
'Ha ground in the long crashing fall from the saddle.
Mf And they, watching at the house, saw him
WL fall, sow his body bounce when it struck the
K earth, and paw the burst of red-cheeked, apples
-I g that rolled about him. They laughed at the un-
1 W expected eruption of apples, and clapped their
i a hands in applause of the long shot by the man
I Mr with the ginger beard.
K (Now that Jack London's work has so sudden-
H ly come to an end there will bo much discussion
jH concerning his place in literature. London was
JH so prolific, his output was so great, that many of
, CH his books were lacking in literary finish. The de-
VB mands of his popularity were exigent, and his
H work suffered. Doubtless some of his stories will
- B endure, but which stories? It is for the future to
lH answer. But a story like the following will en-
" M force attention when final critical judgment comes
I to be passed upon Jack London. It displays the
iB literary form of which London was master when
DB he wrote with care. So far as known it has not
,flp been published in this country, except by Theo-
W' dore Bonnett in San Francisco. It was contributed
!B., to,' the London Nation five years ago. Editor's
