When Miss Jackie Vinlng- -went to
ber room after her unsatisfactory at
tempt to wring from Bedlght the name
of the unconventional young woman
who walked with him In the moon
light, she was angry. And it la pos
sible that, knowing his feelings to
ward her she was angTier still hecaust
with this influence she could not se
cure the confession she sought. It il
likewise true that she felt In ber heart
that Bedlght was right in protecting
the name of the girl and should be
eulogized rather than scourged for it
and yet, when a man has almost
told a woman he lovea her, she has a
right to expect that he will do almutt
anything quasi-reasonable that sd
asjes of him. Failing to handle htm
augurs complications for the future
And most ot us are alike In this
that we love to appear melodramatic
to ourselves, doing all sorts of drastic
things that, slept over, we undo, say
Ing things that we Inflate with self at
the time being and stick a pin lntc
later when our ardor has cooled. U
this mood Jackie Vinlng seated her
self at a small writing desk in he

to tbe chairman of the woman's

Placing the letter and the bill In &
long envelope, she laid tbe package
on tier dresser and retired.
Btlt with fha ftnrtl mn, nf fltA 1lnn
and the luxury of full repose, Jackie's
heart smote her.

It the aforesaid attorney la a woman,
oh, most unfortunate Is the man!
Thursday waa Mayor Bedlght's day of
attendance upon llargsret Tarns
worth', who prosecuted the case
against him on the morning of his ar
rival. She entered the arena after an
earnest conference with "Judge"
Vinlng. who seemed unusually dis
trait and worried.
"Mr. Bedlght," began the lady attor
ney, in a professional tone, "I want
to get some balsam for a pillow this
morning. Do you know the tree when
you see It?"
Yes I've been In the North "Woods
on many a vacation and am familiar
with the flora and fauna ot the coun
try. I am at your service,"- responded
They set out on foof along & path
war that led into the" wood. One In-
side tbe forest It wound In a trail like
that the calf made, through apruoe
and hemlock, poplar and maple, with
how and then a white birch adding a
touch of vivid contrast to the green.
The girl, an enthusiast, was walking
ahead and babbling of the nature pic
tures along the way.
Suddenly Bedlght felt something
bit him In the back, as though n. pel
let thrown from close range. He
turned Inquiringly. From a clump of
brush along the trail a woman's hand
waved at him and a white paper flut
tered to the path. Turning, the mayor
retraced .bis steps. The messenger
crouched low and Bedlght, having se
cured the message, touched his fin
gers to bis lips' and wafted her a salu
tation, cbasto and replete with appre
ciation. And then from ahead came tho sur
prised call of Miss Farnsworth.
"Hurry!" cautioned a voice from be
hind the clump of greenery.
"Coming." cried Bedlght, turning
and forging ahead through the wood.
A pair of pheasants arose with
drumming -whirr from beside tbe path.
"Thcrsl" exclaimed the mayor, ao'
ceptlng the birds as the foundation
for a clever ruse, "you've frightened
"Oh, wjhy .didn't you tell me?" re
proached the girl, getting a fleeting
glance of the brown beauties as the;
Boated, off'' through the trees.
Bedlght, with the note clutched In
bis band, made reasonable apologies
for his thoughtlessness and the girl,
unsuspecting, led on, chattering de
lightedly. It-was a day of days to be
In the wood and youth is ever buoyant
and gay. Plainly tbe girl was lc
tune with tbe mood of the time and
the place, and like the beatitudes
about ber, sought to be congenial and
natural. The man felt himself pleaeed
with her, tor he, too, !ovd tbe soli
tude and. tbe harmonies of the forest.
Presently she sighted a 'scarlet tan
ager and ran ahead. Bedlght, waiting
for tha opportunity, unfolded, tbe, alls
of paper. In a. woman's handwriting
thlswarning was wrtten:
'BE CAMEPTJU. SHE 13 TRYING
TO TRAP YOU."
Bedlght smiled and tucked tbe not
In bis pocket.
Mlis Farnsworth was sitting upon
a fallen monarch of the wood when
he caught up with her. Is her hands
she held a lichen that had-taken her
fancy. Of the, party at Mine Host's
hotel, no girl, was prettier than' Mar
garet Farnsworth and trnm as Intellec
tual. Vivacity, and' spirit, predominat
ed and as Bedlght !ookedat her he
did rot 'belittle her ability to make
things Interesting for him.
She sprang to ber feet as he drew
near, andJratuafter a big brown but
terfly. Bedlght sat down on tbe log
and waited." Suddenly he beard a
scream, tbe rolce of a .woman In pain?
Miss Farnsworth ,sat upon the
ground holding ber ankle la both'
hands. Her lips were tightly drawn.
L) Ber face, gave evidence of pain.
What Is It?" Qaestlooed Bedlght,
apprehensively, going up to her and
taking ho.d of ber arm. ' i '
"Help ne to stand," she directed,
gripping his arm.
He raised her. She let her foot
touch the ground, winced and toppled
"There's a wood chopper's cabin
Just ahead," she groaned. "Could
could you carry me there?" blushing.
For answer he picked ber up in bis
arms. She ihrew ber arms about bis
neck and clung to blni, her hair
brushlug Ills cheek. In sight of tbe
but she whispered:
"Walt! Let me down a minute."
She stood leaning against him. ber
full, ripe lips tesslngly near. For a
moment aa he looked into ber fath
omless eyes, Bedlght felt the weak
ness of man for woman coming over
him. To combat it, he moied farther
away, supporting her at arm's length.
"It w'ould be well to leave me at the
cottage and go back for help. Look
inside, please, while I lean against
this birch." she directed. ,

I woodbox or a man under the bed."
be said laughingly, as he started
toward the cottage.
Tbe mayor stood for a moment
upon tbe threshold and then entered.
As his form disappeared within, there
appeared around the corner' of tbe
cabin a man the game warden of
Lakevllle. In a twinkling he had
alammed shut the door and thrown
a great bar across it from without.
"There, darn ye; I told ye I'd git
ye!" he bellowed with radiant pom
posity. Bedlght turned angrily as th? door
dqsed and realized too late that the
warning given along tbe trail bad not
safeguarded him. He was a prisoner.
Peering thiough the dirty window
pane, an aperture not large enough to
permit tbe passing ot a man's body,
he-. saw Miss Farnsworth leave the
tree against which she bad been lean
ing and walk leisurely toward tbe
With the realization that the girl
had deliberately led blm Into the
bands of the enemy, he gritted his
teeth and then, at the thought that
perhaps Jackie Vinlng had planned
this coup de main, Bedlght felt a
queer sinking ot certain hopes that
heretofore had buoyed up a heart
yearning to take high hurdles. No
a woman may keep a man In hot wa

to throw him in jail Is treachery, and

A voice from without suddenly gave
him hope. It was a voice he knew
well tbe volco of Jackie Vinlng.
"Mr. Bedlght," queried the voice
"are you there Inside the cabin?"
"No, Miss Conspirator," replied the
mayor, -vindictively, "I'm up on the
roof playing solitaire."
"Will you tell me which of the
girls was with you last night?" de
znanded Miss Vinlng. "It so, I will

. "Oh, I like it In here," replied the

Bedight beard tb bar thrown, back,
and a voice whispered cautiously: ,
"Walter! "Walter! The door Is un

From his dingy window Bedlght
saw another feminine form saunter
leisurely up tbe trail and this one,
too, was slim and fair to look upon,
a woman that any good man might
well desire to win.

the bar. Drifting back Into tbe
bushes, he waited. An hour passed
and then came voices and rustling in
the wood. Soon tbe game warden and

warden's face wus flushed' With ex

Approaching the door, he called
"Will ye surrender peaceable and

From -nit bill there emanated no an

twenty feet away, Bedlght waited,
"Corao on out: the door's unlocked,"
shouted the warden.
Still no answer.

Ho could hear the strenuous objec

away, making a detour to a fanuer'i
house, where he hoped to secure
-something to eat. A ruddy-checked
farmer's wife fed him bountifully and
protested at the unnecessary size ol

my boarding bouses. Ill bring you to

It was dark when Bedlght reached
Squirrel Inn and slipped unobserved
to his room.

Saturday morning broke clear and
tense after a sweltering night. Tbe
sun was copper colored and the leaves
upon the crest, where they were wont
to bow and curtsey to the zephyr's
breath, hung listless In tho shimmer

refreshed and Mine Host complained '
of drought. Pauline, the cook, whose

creamy elasticity and whose toast waa J
ever golden brown and delicious, I
fretted the former Into blue-black !

desiccated to a bard-tack condition de-'
cldedly disappointing to her usually
delighted followers. Tho thermometer, !
to all intents and purposes, was so ;
basely ambitious as to seemingly have
no other desire than to climb higher '
and higher In its relentless rise.

Molly McConnell, "row me over to i
