"Let go and swim!" shouted Thoriie.
"I can't swim." replied Juiiko lu so
iow a voice as to be scarcely audible.
l'or a moment Thorpe stared at him 1
"Tell Carrie." said Hlg Junko.
Then there beneath the swirling gray
Iky, under the frowning Jam, III tlie
nldst of Hood waters. Thorpe had lile
eeond great moment of decision. H
lid not paue to weigh reasons 01
hnnces, to discuss with himself expe
lleliey or the moralities of failure. Kin
ictlcmN were foreordained, mechanical.
All at once the great forces which the
winter hud been bringing to powei
crystallized Into something bigger than
himself or his Ideas. The triill lay Iw
fore hliu; there was no choice.

nothing better than love. Men

opinion of men a little thing. Instantly
lie felt the truth of It.
And here was love lu danger. That
it held Its moment's habitation in clay
of the coarser mold had nothing 1o do
with the great elemental truth of It.
l'or the llrs 1 time lu bis life Thorpe
felt the full crushing power of an ab
straction. Without thought, instinc
tively, he threw before the necessity of

the triumph of what was real lu the

alienation, dillicultles, hud raised up

At Kig Jtiuko'rt words Thorpe raised

Tlie tie end of one of the poles Im

Then the awe broke from about their

good white pine. 1
Thsn they noticed a group of men 1
gathering aliout the office steps, mid
011 It some one talklug. Collins, the
bookkeeper, was making a speech.
Collins was a little butchet faced
man. with straight, lank hair, near
sighted eyes, a tluild, order loving dis
position and a great suitability for bis
profession. He was accurate, unemo
tional and valuable. All bis actions
were as dry as the sawdust lu the
burner. No one had ever seen him ex
cited. But he was human, and now
hl knowledge of the company's affairs
showed bim the dramatic contrast. He
kuew. He knew that the property of
the Arm had been mortgaged to the
last dollar lu order to assist 'expansion.
m that not another cent could be bor
rowed to tide over present dllllculty.
He knew that the notes for $r.0.000
rovertng the toau to vtauace 1 arpenier
?aoie due lu three months. He knew
from the loug table of statistics Which
'ie was eternally preparing and com
parlw that tlie season's cut should
ve netted a prottt of $200,0s. enough
to pay the Interest ou the mottgages,
to take up the notes and to furnish a
working capital for the ensuing year.
Tbeae things he knew In the strange
Toucrrle arithmetical manner of the
routine bookkeeper. Other men saw
a desperate phase of firm rivalry. He
saw n struggle to the uttermost. Oth
er men cheered a rescue. He thrilled
over the magnificent gesture of the
gambler scattering his stake In largesse
It was the simple turning of the baud
from full breathed prosperity to life
His view was the Inverse of his mas
ter's. To Thorpe It bad suddenly be- j
come a very little thing In contrast to
the great, swret, elemental truth that '
the dream girl bad enunciated. To
Collins the affair Vas tulles vaster than '
the widest scope of Ills own narrow j
The firm could not take up Its notes 1
when they came due; It could not pay
the Interest on the mortgages, which .
would now be foreclosed; It could not I
even pay In full the men who bad 1
worked for It that would come under ,
a court's adjudication.
He hud therefore watched Thorpe's
desperate sally to mend the weakened
chain lu all the suspense of a man '
whose entire universe Is lu the keeping
of the chance moment. It must be re
membered that at bottom, below the
outer consciousness. Thorpe's filial de
cision had already grown to maturity.
On the other band, 110 other thought
than that of accomplishment had even
entered the little bookkeeper's head,
The rescue and all that It had meant
bad bit bim like a stroke of apoplexy,
and bis thin emotions bad curdled to
hysteria. Full of the Idea he appeared
before the men.
With rapid, almost Incoherent speech
he poured it out to them. Professional
cnullon and secrecy were forgotten,
Wallace Carpenter attempted to push
through the rlug for the pnrpe of
slopping him. A gigantic river man
kindly but firmly held hi in buck.
"I guess It's Just as well we hears
this," satd the latter.
It all came out-tbe loan to Carpen
ter, with a bint at the motive the
raucblnatlous of the rival firm ou the
board of trade; tbe notes, the mort
gages, tlie necessity of a big season's
cut; the reasons tbe rival flrui bad for
wishing to prevent that cut fiom ar
riving at the market; tbe desperate and
varied lueaus they had employed. Tbe
men listened, silent. Hamilton, bis
eyes glowlug like coals, drank In every
word. Here was the muster motive be
bad sought; here was tbe story greut
to his baud.
"That's what tre ought to get!" cried
Colllm. almost "w&ptug. "And uow
wVra'wua od bUa't Just because tfiut
infernal rler hoi: Inn! In fall nit 11

110 account of anything but some re

furtively, but veJtli a proud, upright
carriage of his neck, n backward tilt
of his flue head, a distension of his
nostrils, that lent to his appearance u
panther-like pride and stciilthluess. No
one saw him. Suddenly he broke
through the group and mounted the
steps beside Collins.
"The enemy of my brother Is gone,"
said he simply In his native tongue,
and wllh a sudden gesture held out be
fore them- a scalp.
Tlie medieval barbarity of the thing
appalled them for a moment. The days
of scalping were long since past, hud
been closed away between the pages
of forgotten histories, and yet he

The human animal had tasted blood.

They turned and with one accord
struck back for the railroad right of

town controlled by Morrison V Daly.
The railroads lay for a mile straight

Their approach was not unobserved. ,
Daly suw them, and Maker, his fore- '

Duly traced 11 Hue with his toe.
"The tlrst man that crosses that line

They knew be meant what be said.
An lutant's pause ensued, while the
big man and the little faced a mob.
Daly's river men were still ou drive, lie
