Thorpe listened In silence. Shearer
asked n few questions. After the low
voiced conversation Thorpe nioso -lb-ruptly.
"Where you going?" risked Shenrer.

Then began the wonderful struggle
against circumstances which has be

"Ighlcen hours a day the men of the

Jams had no chance to form. Of
course under the pressure the lower
dam had gone out. Nothing was to be
depended on but sheer dogged grit.

their dilve for the season, nnd so hnd
resigned themselves to n definite but

since reached the point of practical
exhaustion, but wcie cnrrled through
by the lire of their leader. 'Work was
dogged until he stormed Into sight;
then It became frenzied. When he
looked at n mnn from his cavernous,
burning eyes, that mnn Jumped.
Impossibilities were puffed aside like
thistles. The men went at them head
long. T.hey gave wuy before the rush.
Thorpe always led. Not for n single
Instant of the day nor for many nt
night wns he nt rest. Instinctively he
seemed to renlize that a let down
would menn collapse.
After the camp had fallen nsleep he
would often Ho nwnko hnlf of the few
hours of their night, every muscle
tense, staring at the sky. His mind
saw definitely every detail of the sit
nation ns he had viewed It. In ndvnnee
his Imagination stooped and sweated
to the woik which his body wns to ac
complish the next morning. Thus he
did everything twice. Then nt lust the
tension would relax. He would fall
Into uneasy sleep. Hut twice that did
not follow. Through the dissolving
iron mist of Ids striving a sharp
thought cleaved like an ariow. It wns

In the still darkness of the night he
would rise and steal to the edge of the
I'ully roaring stream. There, his eyes
blinded and his throat choked with n
longing more manly than tears, he
would reach out and smooth .the round
lough coats of the great logs.

1 To the Kditor ofTinj Tkihunk:
j t note that in your editorial of a
past week you advocate on general
I grounds the destruction of mosqui
I toes. This mntler derives added
I urgency from the fact that Dr.
iS:hwallic tells me that lie has had
1 thirty or forty cases of dengue in
I Kau during the last three mouths.
I Fortunately the human memory
I is not very retentive for past suffer
ing, but surely the people of Hilo
can recall the financial loss due to
dengue iu the town last year. There
is, I believe, an ample fund now
available for sanitary purposes iu
Hilo, and it cannot, in my opinion,
be expended better than in the de
struction of mosquitoes. The proof
of the spreading of dengue by their
agency, while not cjuiti complete
scientifically, is sufficiently certain
for all practical purposes, nnd we
have the satisfaction of knowing
that if we kill our day mosquitoes
now we shall not be liable to the
dangerof yellow fever in the future.
Respectfully, John J. GuACit.
