cnlt your bluff, Mr. Daly, nnd I'll fight
you from the drop of the lint through
very court In Christendom."
"Klght ahead," advised Daly sweetly. ;
Who knew perfectly well that Thorpe's !
law was faulty. As a matter of fact, '
the young man could have collected
on other grounds, but neither was
awnrc of that.
"Furthermore," pursued Thorpe In
addition, "I'll repeat my offer before
witnesses, and if I win the tlrst suit
I'll sue you for the money we could j
have uinde by purchasing the extra
million and n half before It had a I
chance to spoil." I
This statement had its effect, for It
forced an immediate settlement before
the pine on the skids should deteriorate.
Daly lounged back with a little nioro
"And, lastly," concluded Thorpe, play
ing his trump card, "the suit from
start to finish will be published In ev
cry Important paper In this country.
If you do not believe I have the in
fluence to do this you are at liberty tc
doubt the fact." '
Daly was cogitating many things.
He knew that publicity was the last
thing to he desired. Thorpe's state
ment had been made In view of the
fact that much of the business of a
lumber firm is done on credit. He
thought that perhaps a rumor of a big
suit going against the firm might
weaken confidence. As n matter ol
fact, this consideration had no weight
whatever with the older man, although
the threat of publicity actually gained
for Thorpe what he demanded. Tho
lumberman feared the noise of an In
vestigation solely and simply because
his firm, like so many others, was en
gaged at the time In stealing govern
ment timber In the upper peninsula,
no did not call It stealing, but that
was what It amounted to. Thorpe
shot In the air hit full.
"I think we enn arrange a baBls of
settlement," he said finally. "Be here
tomorrow morning nt 10 with Ilad
"Very well," snld Thorpe.
"Hy tho way," remarked Daly, "I
don't believe I know your name."
"Thorpe," was the reply.
"Well, Mr. Thorpe," enld the lum
berman, with cold anger, "If nt any
time there Is anything within my pow
er or Intluenco that you want I'll pee
that you don't get it."
The whole nffair was Anally compro
mised for ?9,000. Itndwny, grateful
beyond expression, Insisted on Thorpo's
acceptance of on even thousand, and
with this money In hand thoMnttcr felt
Justified In taking n vacation for the
purpose of visiting his sister.
For tho purposes ho had In view
$.'00 would bo none too much. Tho re
maining $500 he had resolved to Invest
lu his sister's comfort and hnpplness.
He had thought the matter over and
had gradually evolved what seemed to
Iilm an excellent plan. He had already
perfected It by correspondence with
Mrs. Itenwlck. It wns, brlefiy, this: He,
Thorpe, would at once hire a servant
girl, who would make anything but su
pervision unnecessary lu so small a
household. Tho remainder of the mon
ey he had nlreudy paid for a year's
tuition In the seminary of the town.
Thus Helen gained her leisure nnd an
opiortunlty for study and still retain
ed her home In case of reverse.
Thorpe found his sister already a
young lady. After tho llrat delight of
meeting hnd passed they sat side by
side on the haircloth sofa iiiid took
stock of each other.
Helen had developed from the school
child to the woman. She was a hand
some girl, possessed of a slender, well
rounded form and deep hqzel eyes, with
the level gaze of her brother, although
a figure rather aloof, a face rather Im
passive, but with the possibility of,pns
slou and emotion and n will to back
"Oh, but you're tanned and nnd
big!" she cried, kissing her brother.
"You've hnd such a strnngo winter,
"Yes," he replied absently. "Things
cauio n little better than I thought they
were going to toward the last, and I
made a little money."
"Oh, I'm so glad!" she cried. "Wns It
"No, not much," he answered. The
actual figures would have been so
much better. "I've made arrangements
with Mrs. Itenwlck to hlro a servaut
girl, mi you will have air your time free,
and I've paid a year's tuition for you
In the hemlnary."
"Oh," said the girl, nnd fell itlloiit.
After a time, "Thank you very much,
Harry dear;" then, after another Inter
val, "I thluk I'll go get ready for supper."

The days, however, passed In the

were fond of one another. The bar

not yet cemented by lack of a flection
on cither side, but rather by lack of
belief In the other's affection. Helen

Finally Helen came on him busily

at the door. He unwound and laid one

with his head In excelsior.
Helen's eyes lit up with a Ore of d
light "now nice! May 1 go with

Thorpe shook Iris head.
"I'm afraid not, little girl. It's go
ing to be a hard trip a long ways from
anywhere. You couldn't stand It."
"I'm sure I could. Try me."
"No," replied Thorpe. "I know you
couldn't. We'll be sleeping on the
ground and going on foot through
much extremely dllllcult country."
"I wish you'd take me somewheVc,"
pursued Helen. "I enn't get away this
summer unless you do. Why don't you

"I can't, little girl; that's all. We've
got our way to make."
She understood thnt he considered
the trip too expensive for them both.

There was one passenger aboard
the Steamer Enterprise on her last
trip from the coast that was not
down on the passenger list and did
not pay his fare, but received as
gracious and courteous treattne.it
as the most distinguished guest of
the ship. THs individual was 119
less a personage than "Ilaiw, the
veteran," whose familiar figure on
the water front is well known to
every sea captain and sailor who
has come into this port in recent
''Hans" has just made a trip to
Sau Francisco, via Honolulu, and
the journey has not cost him a cent
personally. Of course, it is not ex
pected, inasmuch as "Hans" is n
grizzly little sky terrior, that he
should have a bank' account or be
joverbuuleued with a .plethora of
wealth. He was missed from his
haunts about the water front in
March last, and it was supposed he
had been carried off on the coal
schooner which left at. that time for
the Sound. Nothing was heard
from the astray, and his owner K.
T. Guard, gave him up as lost,
lint never yet has "Hans" wander
od away but what he has turned
up sooner or later and a few weeks
ago word was received from San
Francisco that "Hans" was there
and in the hands of his friends.
It seems that some of the crew of
the "Suseittehaua," which was in
; port about the time, took a fancy
I to the animal and on their discharge
from the ship took the dog with
j them to Honolulu on the Kinau.
Evidently "Hans" did not like the
bad comnnnv he had uotten into."
for soon he was roaming the streets
and the water front of Honolulu.
Captain Anderson of the Santiago,
who formerly was a frequent visit
or to this port, rati across the dog
by the merest accident. Sitting in
a park bench in Knuna Squnre one
evening during a band concert la
was surprised to find n strange look
ing (log jumping tip on his knees
and expressing unmistakable signs'

of delight at meeting one of his old
Hilo friends. The Captain recogn
ized the smiling countenance of
"Hans," the sailors' friend, and
immediately took him in ow.
When the ship departed for San
Francisco he invited "Hans" to go
along, which the latter did, and
when the Enterprise left for Hilo
"Hans" got aboard nnd made him
self at home. Captain Youngrn
had net the heart to collect any
fare, but gave him every, attention
and the best the ship's larder afford
ed. "Hans" is of German-Irish ex
traction, whose age is calculated to
bevibout nine years, more or less.
When yet a pup, Admiral Guard
took the shaggy little canine in
hand and with a nursing bottle
has brought up his protege with
many of the accomplishments and
characteristics of his foster father.
"Hans" is the most sociable of dogs,
makes friends with only sea-faring
men, who smell of rope and tar and
oakum. "Hans" has a keen scent
and even before a ship is sight
ed by the tug boat, waterfrouters
are made known of the fact of the
vessel outside by the antics of the
dog. He exhibits his satisfaction
and glee on the approach of a
vessel by furious wags of his tail
and enthusiastic capers, which Ad
miral Guard declares is an uutail
ing sign of the presence ot a sailing
craft outside. "Hans" is an old
tar himsfcli and can climb .1 ladder '
thrown over a vessel's side as
nimbly as the next one. When
the harbor is full of ships "Hans"
makes a morning call upon each in
turn and receives an uniform wel
come fiom master and men alike
wherever he goes. The cook in
the galley always has a tempting
morjel for the mascot nnd Hans
relishes a piece of "salt horse" or
pilot bread dipped in coffee as much
as the crustiest old sailor. "Hans"
is stout and robust from his pere
grinations on the water, and to
judge by his grizzled old counten
ance, which is wreathed in smiles,
he is happy to get home again.
