As hooii as loading began the cook 1
served breakfast nt 3 o'clock. The men
worked by the light of torches, which
were ofteu merely catchup Jugs with
wlcklng In the necks. Nothing could
be more picturesque than n teamster
conducting one of bis great pyramid
leal loads over the little liiciiuulltlcs of '
the road, In tho ticklish places stand
ing atop with the bent knee of the Ho
man cbnrlotecr, spying and forestall
ing the chances of the way with a fixed
eye and an Intense concentration thnt
relaxed not one inch In the miles of
the haul. Thorpe had become n full '
Hedged cant book man.
Ho liked the work. There Is about It
a skill that fascinates. A man grips
suddenly with the book of his Ntroiig
Instrument, stopping one end that the
other may slide. He thrusts the short,
strong stock between the log and the
skid, allowing It to be overrun. lie
stops the roll with a sudden sure grasp
applied nt Just the right moment to be
effective. Sometimes he allows himself
to be carried up bodily, clinging to the
cant hook like an acrobat to a bar, un
til the log has rolled once, when, his
weapon loosened, he drops lightly, eas
ily to tho ground. And It Is excltlug to
pile the logs on the 'sleigh, first n layer'
of Ave, say; then one of four smaller, of
but three, of two, until nt the very
apex the last Is dragged slowly up the
skids, poised and Just as It Is about to
plunge down the other side Is gripped
and held Inexorably by the little men j
In blue flannel shirts.
Clinlns bind the loads. And If ever
during the loading or afterward when
tho sleigh 1a. In motion the weight of
the logs causes the pyramid to break
down and S(unsli out, then woe to the
driver or whoever happens to be near.
For this reason the loaders are picked
and careful men.
At tho banking grounds, which lie In
and about the bed of the river, the logs
arc piled Into a gigantic skldwoy to
nwalt the spring freshets, which will
carry them down stream to the "boom."
In that lnclosure they remain until
sawed In the mill.
Thorpe, In common with the other
men, had thought Hallway's vacation
at Christmas time a mistake. He could

Ono morning In February Thorpe
was helping load n big butt log. He
was one of the two men who stand nt
either end of the skids to help the as
cendlng log keep straight and true to
Us bed on the pile. His assistant's
end caught on a silver, ground for a
second and slipped back. Then the
log ran slanting across the skids In
stead of perpendicular to them. To
rectify the fault Thorpe dug' his cant
hook Into the timber and threw his
weight on the stock. He hoped in-tuis
manner to check correspondingly the
ascent of his end. In other words, he
took tho place on his side of the pre
venting sliver, so equalizing the pres
sure nnd forcing tho timber to Its prop
er position. Instead of rolling the log
slid. The stock of the cnut hook was
Jerked from his hands. He fell back,
nnd the cant hook, nftcr clinging fot
a moment to the rough hark, snapped
down nnd hit him a crushing blow on
the top of the head.

then turned on his pillow. At once he
perceived a long, double row of clean

women glided here nnd there noiseless

were quaintly white-garbed In stiff

Thorpe's was to his sister.
"I have been In the hospital for

Cure For Leprosy.
New Orleans, April 23. In a

Isadore Dyer, the physicians of the
lepers' home of Louisiana nnd one
of the most distinguished experts
on tliis disease in this country, after
saying there were 3,000,000 lepers
in existence, or one to every 500
living persons, announced that in
the last two years the problem of
curing this dread disease had been

years, since the latter part of 1902, 1

stages of the disease, have been im

within a comparatively short time,
on leprosy, which Dr. Dyer attend
ed, there had been, he said, a few
cases of the disease cured. That
there were not more cures was due
to the fact that the disease was not
treated. Treatment means perseve
rance for years, not for weeks or
months. Dr. Dyer expressed con
fidence that if the treatment of lep

maintained long enough, thedisea.se
could be cured ns easily as any other.

Melieula Seeks New Trial.
Honolulu, T. II., May 11.
Sentence of Solomon Melieula,
convicted in Federal Court by jury
of destroying certain public do
cuments, vouchers of the House of
Representatives, was set fur this
morning before Judge Dole. Cla
rence V. Abliford, Meheuln's coun

froih his Kauai trip, and entered
motion for a new trial. Matter
1 was taken under advisement and
sentence deferred until Monday
New trial motion was based on
the record; conviction wts contraiy
to law and evidence; Melieula
should not hnve been hailed before
the Grand Jury against himself; it
had not been proven' that defendant

.that they had ever

had testified as to what Melieula

that it was presuming greatly to
take such unsupported statement
as accurate and as absolutely so.
