The girl, exasperated by colli details

You don't know what you nre doing."
"The linn needs It, lllldn." sold
Thorpe, "hi order to Riicceed. If we do
not cut this pine we may fnll."
"If I were a man," she Bald, nnd her
voice was tense "If I were n mini and
loved a woman, I would be ready to
gle up everything for her. My rlelies
my pride, my life, my honor, my soul
even, they would be ns nothing, its less
than nothing, to me If I loved. Hurry,

with n tender gesture, of npiKMtt. The
uffulr had gone beyond the preservation
of n few trees. It hod liccome the ques
tion of on Ideal. Gradually, In spite of
herself, the conviction was forcing It
self upon her that the man she hod
loved was so different from the rest
that the greed of the dollar liinl cor
rupted him too. Hy tho mere yielding
to her wishes she wanted to prove the

"Do you need the money more than
you do me, more than you do love?"
she begged, her soul In her eyes, for sbe
was begging nlso for herself. "Think.
Harry. It Is the last chonce!"
He was face to face with n vital de
cision. He experienced no"cdutllct ol
mind, no hesitation, for the moment
no regret. During nil his woods life
he hod been following diligently the
trail he hud bin zed for his conduct.
Now his feet carried him unconscious
ly to the same end. There was no oth
er way out. In answer to Hilda's ques
tion lie merely Inclined his head.
"I hove seen a vision," sold she sim
ply, and lowered her head to conceal
her eyes. Then she looked nt him
again. "There can bo nothing better

"Yes. one tiling," said Thorpe "the

er over us his most elllclent man to see
that tliey got off without ditlieulty. but
himself retired on sonic excuse to
Camp Four. Three weeks gone In Oc
tober he received 11 marked newspaper
announcing the engagement of Miss
Hilda I'nrraud to .Mr. Hildrcth Morton
Wi.'t-ijjth bi ill euuj luiu i-iiiiiui'
tied late, which In tho end was
11 good thing for the year's cut.
-.i,..,.! The season was capricious,
hanging for days at 11 time at tlm
brink of n thnw, only to stiffen again
Into severe weather. This was try
lug on the nerves, for at each of these
false alarms the six camps fell Into
11 feverish haste to get the Job finished
before the breakup. It was really quite
extraordinary how much was accom
plished under the nagging spur of
weather conditions nnd the cruel rowel
ing of Thorpe.
Tho latter had now no thought be
yond his work, and thnt was the
thought of a mndinaii. Tie had been
stern and unyielding enough before,
goodness knows, but now ho was tenJ
hie. Not for 1111 Instant was there 11
resting spell. Tho veriest chore boy
talked, thought, dioamcd, of nothing
but saw logs. Men whispered vogtielj
of a lecoid cut. The dllllcultles of
snow, accident, topography, were
swept aside like straws, Little thnt'
was wasted and no opHrtuuItlcs. It
did not matter how smoothly affairs
happened to bo running for the 1110
meat; every advniituge.even the small
est, was eagerly seized to advance the
work. A iliop of live degiees during
the frequent warm spells brought oul
the sprinklers oven In tho dead of
night. At night the men fell into thelt
hunks llko sand bags, and their last
conscious thought, If Indeed they had
any at all, was of eagerncbs for the
morrow. It was madness, hut It win
the madness these men loved.
1'or now to his old religion Thorpe
had added it fanaticism, and over tlm
fanaticism was gradually creeping u
film of doubt. To the conscientious
energy which 11 sense of duty supplied
was added the tremendous kinetic
forco of a love turned Into other chan
nels. And hi tlu wild nights while the
other men slept Thorpe's half crazed
brain was revolving over and over
ugulii the wolds of the sentence he had
hea ril fiom Hilda's lips, "There can he
uuthlng butter thuu luvu."
His nctlons. Ids mind, his very soul,
vehemently denied the proposition. He
clung us ever to his high Puritanic
idea of man's purpose. Hut down deep
In n very tiny, Racrcd corner of his
heart 11 very small voice sometimes
made Itself heard when other more
militant voices were still: "It may be.
It mny be."
The Inst month of hauling was nlso
one of snow. Kach day 11 little fell.
Hy and by the accumulation amounted
to much. In the woods where the wind
could not get nt It It lny deep mid soft
above the tops of bushes. On either
side of the logging roads the snow piled
so high as to form a kind of rampart
When nil this water In suspense should
begin to How and to seek Its level. In
the water courses of the district the
logs would have plenty to ilont them
So late did the cold weather Inst that,
even with the added plowing to do. the
six camps beat all records. On the
banks at Ciimp One were 0.000.000
feet. The totals of nil live amounted
to :S3.000,fl00. About 10.000.000 of this
was on Trench creek, the remainder
on the main bnnk of the Ossawlnn
makee. Resides this, the linn up river,
Sadler & Smith, lind put up some 1'-.-000,000
more. The drlvo promised to
be quite nn affair.
About the 10th of April attention be
came strained. Kvery day the mount
ing sun made heavy attacks on tho
snow; every night the tcniperotute
dropped below the freezing point. The
river began to show more air holes, oc
casional open places. About the cen
ter the lee looked worn and soggy.
Some one saw a Hock of geese high In
the nlr. Then came rain.
One morning early Long .11m Pine
came Into the men's camp bearing a
huge chunk of tallow. This he held
IIIKMIIlsi iiiu iiui Biuiu until ,19 mi.iuii
1 uul softened, when he begnn to swab
liberal qunntltles of grease on his
I spiked river shoes, which he fished out
fiom under his bunk.
VShe's cumin', boys." he snld.
He donned a pair of woolen trousers
thnt hnd been chopped off nt the knee,
' thick woolen stockings and the river
I shoes. Then he tightened his broad
leather belt about his heavy shht,
I cocked his little hat over his ear nnd
I walked over In the corner to select it
peavey from the lot the blacksmith hnd
. just put In shnpe. A peavey is like n
. cant hook except thnt It Is pointed nt
the end. Thus It can be used either ni
n hook or n pike. At the same moment
I Shearer, similarly attired and equipped.
I appeared In the doorway. The opening
of the portnl admitted n roar of sound.
' The river was rising.
1 "Come on, boys; she's on!" sold he
1 "Lively, boy. lively!" stiouteO
1 Thoipe. "She'll be down on us hefor
we know It!"
Abote tlm creaking of dead hrauchet
......I... t .!. I.n. ..... rt ...i,ll Iff, nll.f.im.
In the wind sounded n steady roar like
the bellowing of a wild boast lashing
Itself to fury. The freshet was abroad.
j The men heard It, nnd their eye
brightened witli the lust of battle.
1 At the banks of tho river Thorpe Is-
, sued his directions. The affair had
I been all prearranged. Immediately
I above the lirst railways was Dam
Three, with Its two wide sluices
through which a veritable Hood could
lie loosened at will: then four miles far
j titer lay the railway of Sadler & Smith,
the up river linn, nnd above them pun
bled over a forty-live foot ledge the
beautiful Slseoe falls. These first rail
ways of Thorpe's, spread In the broad
marsh tint below the dam, contained
about 8,000,000. The rest of the sea
son's cut was scattered for thirty miles
along the bed of tho river. ,
Already the Ice cementing the logs
together hod begun to weaken. Tho lec
had wi cached and tugged savagely at
the locked timbers until they had. with
a mighty effort, snapped asunder the
bonds of their hibernation. Now n nar
row lane of black rushing water
pierced tho rollwnys to boll and eddy In
the consequent Jam three miles below'.
To tho foremen Thorpe assigned their
"Moloney," Bald ho to the big Irish
man, "take your crew and break that
Jam. Then scatter your men down to
within a mllo of the pond nt Dam Two
and seo that tho river runs clear. You
con tent for a day or so at West Rend
or some other point about half wnv
down, nnd after that y on had better
e.iinp at the dam. Just as soon us you
get logs enough In the pond start to
sluicing them through tho dam. You
won't need more than four men theio
if you keep a good head. You can
keep your gates open five or six hours.
1 "1 want you to bo careful not to
sluice too long. There Is a bar Just
below the dam, and If you try to
Hliilco with the water too low you'll
center and Jam there as sure us shoot
ing." Rryan Moloney turned on his heel
and began to pick his way down
stream over tho solidly banked logs.
Without waiting the command a dozen
men followed him. The little group
bobbed nwny liiegularly Into the dis
tance, springing lightly fiom one tlm
! ber to the other, holding their quaintly
fashioned peaveys In the manner of a
1 ropeduueer's buluuclug pule. At the

lowermost limit or tne railways eaeti
man pried a log Into the water and,
standing gracefully erect on this un
stable craft, floated out down the cur
rent to the sceuc of his dangerous la
bor. "Kerllc," went on Thorpe, "your
crew can break railways with the rest
until we get the river fairly tilled, and
then you can move on down stream as
fast as you are needed. Scotty. you
will have the rear. Tim nnd I will
boss the river."
At once the signal was given to El
lis, the dam watcher. Ellis and his
assistants thereupon began to pry with
long iron bars at the ratchets of the
heavy gates. The chore boy bent at
tentively over the ratchet pin. lifting
it delicately to penult another inch of
raise, dropping It accurately to enable
the men at the bars to seize a fresh
purchase. The river's roar deepeued.
Through the wide sluiceways a torrent
foamed and tumbled. Immediately It
spread through the brush on cither side
to the limits of the freshet banks nnd
then gathered for Its leap against the
uneasy rollwnys. Along the edge of
the dark channel the face of the logs
seemed to crumble nwny. Farther In
townid the bnnks whe. the weight
of timber still outbalanced the weight
of the flood the tiers grumbled and
stirred. Fur down the river, where
Uryan Moloney and his crew were
picking nt the Jam, the water In eager
streamlets sought the interstices be
tween the logs, gurgling excitedly.
