erclse had heated him through, and
now tho north country cold penetrated
to his hones. lie huddled close to the
lire nnd drank hot tea, but It did not
do him very much good. In his secret
mind he resolved to buy ono of the
blanket mncklnaws that very evening.
Tho newcomer's flrst day of hard
work had tired him completely. He
was ready for nothing bo much ns his
bunk. Hut ho had forgotten that It
was Saturday night Ills status was
still to assure.
They began with a few mild tricks.
Shuffic the brogun followed hot back.
Thorpe took all of it good naturedly.
Finally a tall Individual with a thin,
whlto face, a reptilian forehead, red
dish hair and long, bnbboon arms sug
gested tossing In n blanket. Thorpe
looked nt tho low celling and declined.
"I'm with the game as long as you
can say, boys," said he, "and I'll have
as much fun ns anybody, but that's
going too fnr for a tired man."
Tho reptilian gentleman let out a
string of onths whoso meaning might
ho translated, "We'll see about that!"
Thorpe was a good boxer, but ho
know by now tho lumber Jacks' meth
od of fighting nny thing to hurt the
other fellow. And in a genuine, old
rough nnd tumble your woodsman Is
about the toughest customer to handle
you will be likely to meet. He is
brought up on fighting. Nothing pleases
him better than to get drunk nnd, with
a few companions, to embark In nn
earnest effort to "clean out" a rival
town. And he will accept cheerfully
punishment enough to kill thrco ordi
nary men. 1
Thorpo nt tlio flrst hostile movement
sprang back to the door, seized ono of
tho three-foot billets of hnrd wood in
tended for the stovo and faced his op
ponents. "I don't know which of you hoys is
coming first," said ho quietly, "hut he
is going to get it good and plenty."
If U10 affair had been serious these
men would nover have recoiled before
the rncro danger of n stick of hard
wood. Hut this was a good nntured bit
of foolery, a test of nerve, and thero
was no object In getting n broken head
for that Tho reptilian gentleman alone
grumbled something profane.
"If you hanker for trouble so much,"
drawled the unexpected voice of old
Jackson from tho corner, "mehbo you
could put on tho gloves."
Tho rest wns farce. Thorpo was built
on true athletic lines broad, straight
Hhoulders. narrow Hanks, long, clean,
miooth muscles. He possessed, besides,
that hereditary toughpess and bulk
which no gymnasium will ever quite
supply. Tlio other man, while power
ful und ugly In his rushes, wns clumsy
and did not uso his bend. Thorpe
planted his hmd, straight blows at will.
Finally he suw his opening mid let out
with a swinging pivot blow. The other
picked himself out of u corner nnd
drew off tho gloves. Thorpe's stutus
"The young fullcr'H all right," ob
served Heath. "Ho cuffed Hen up to a
peak nil right."
"Went down llko a peck of wet fish
nets," replied Juckson tranquilly.
X tho office shiinty one evening
about a weok Inter Itadway and
his seuler happened to he talk
ing over the situation. The'
scaler, whoso niuiio wus Dyer, slouched
back in tho shadow watching his
great honest superior as u crafty,
1 dnlnty cnt might watch the blunder-
lngs of a St IJernard. Dyer had a pre
else little black mustache, whoso ends
ho was constantly twisting Into points;
black eyebrows, and long, effeminate,
black lashes. Tho two men conversed
In short, elliptical sentences, using
manv technical terms.
"That 'seventeen' whlto plno Is going
to underrun," said Dyer. "It won't
skid over 3,000."
"It's small stun," agreed Itadway,
''and so much the worse for us. Uut
the company Ml stand In on It, because
Binall stuff llko that always overruns
on tho mill cut."
The scaler nodded comprehension.
"When aro you going to dry haul
-that Norway across Tlko lake?"
"Tomorrow. Sue springs, but tno
book says Ave Inches of lco will hold
a team, and there's more than that
How much arc wo putting In a day
Itadway fell silent
"That's mighty Httlo for such a
crew," he observed at last doubtfully.
"I always said you were too easy
with them. You got to drive them
"Well. It's n rough country." apolo
gized Itadway. trying, as was his cus
tom, to find excuses for tho other pur
ty as noon ih he was agreed with In
I1I1 blame. "There's any nmount of
pot holes and then we've had so much
snow the giound ain't really froze un
derneath. It gets pretty soft in some
of them swamps. Can't II g 11 re on put
ting up us much In this country ns we
used to dow 11 011 the Muskegon."
Tlu scaler smiled a thin smile nil to
hlnwlf behind the stove. Dyer knew
perfectly well that the work was be
hind, nnd he knew the reason. For
rtome time the men had been relaxing
their efforts. They had worked hon
estly enough, but a certain snap and
vim had lacked. This was because
Itiulway hud been too easy with them.
Your true lumber Jack adores of nil
thliiir l creation a man whom he
feel to be stronger than himself. If
hi employer Is big enough to drive
him. then he is willing to bo driven to
the lant ounce of his strength. Hut
oiiee he gets the notion that his "boss"
h n fin Id of or for him or his feelings
or tils health, he loses interest In his
working for that man. As you value
your authority, the love of your men
and the completion of your work, keep
a bluff brow and an unbending single
ness of purpose.
Thorpe hud already commented on
the feeling among the men. though,
owing to his Inexperience, he was not
able to estiuMte Its full vnlue. The
men were Inclined to 11 scmlupologctlc
