asked the men to come to hi store

Miller and .lack Kelso it ml Samuel

Traylor cabin. Samson greeted the
party with a look of surprise.

I "No Just to hang around ye." anld
i "Thl time If a heart warniin'."
1 Jack Kelso averred. "We left our

without reserve, knowing you to he a
man above Jealousy."
"If what we call a he pnrty. ou

the minister have a rassle."
The Iteverclid Stephen Nuckles

a fatuous wrestler.
"I. caln't .tussle, like I used to could,

aald the minister.
"You'd better save your strength
for of Satan," said Abe.
"tio on. Abe," the other urged,
"(live Mm a try."
Abe modestly stepped forward. In
the last year he bad prown less In
cjined to that kind of fun. The men
took hold of each other, collar and
elbow. They parr!ed with their feet
for nil Instant. Suddenly Abe's long
right leg rniiglit Itself behind the left
knee of the minister. It was the hip

secured the stronger mini was nltnost

sturdy circuit rider stood against It
for a second until Abe sprang bis how.
Then the heels of the former flew n

grass, lan k tlrst.
"That a r done popped my wind

"Hough ami tumble," Ferguson pro
Iloth men agreiil. Tliey bent low
intently watching each other, their
great hand outreachlng. They stood
braced for a second and suddenly both
sprang forward. Their shoulders
came together with a thud. It was
like two big bison bulls hurling their
weight In the first shock of battle.
For a breath each bore with all his
strength and then closed with hi ad

with one arm, the other hooked
around a shoulder. Samson lifted Abe

of the wrestlers they felt a fear of
broken hones. Kadi hud torn a rent

to cry. Sarah heeded the struggling

"Ioii't say un? thing about It," Abe
cautioned her. "Just go Into the house

Then Abe told Samson whit wuw
up. The men concealed themselves In
some bushes by the roadside while the
minister sat close against an end of
the Ionise uitli his bloodhound beside
him. I'.efore they were setiieil ill
their places they hoard the regulator
coining. There were eight men In the
party according to Abe's count as
they passed. The men. ill conceal
ment, hurried to the cabin and sur
rounded it, crouched against the
walls. In a moment they could see a
big spot, blacker than the darkness,
moving toward them. It was the
massed raider. They came on with
the stealth of a cat Hearing its prey.
A lioiilike rour broke the silence. The
preacher's bloodhound leaped forward.
The walling men sprang to their feet
and charged. The raider turned and
ran, pell melt. In a panic toward their
horse. Suddenly the darkness seemed
to fill with moving figure, line of
the fleeing men, hoe coat taila the
dog had selied, was yelling for help.
The minister rescued hits and the dog
went on roaring after the other.
Whey the New Kiilemltea got to the
edge of the grove the could hear a
number of regulator cllinhlng Into
the t reel op. Samson had a man In
each hand: Abe had another, while.
Harry Needle and AJeiatider Fergu
son were in possesion of the man
whom the dog had raptured. The
mluister wa out In the grove with
hla bloodhound that wa barking ami
growling under a tree. Jack Kelso
rried with a lantern, one of Sam
son' captive begun swearing and
struggling to get away. Samson gave
him a little shake ami bade hint be

and pain and offered no more resist

They moved the raiders' horses.
Then the party save Harry Needle,
who stnvisl In the grove to keep watch
took its captives Into the cabin.

evening's frolic. IHoin! wn dripping

Surah made tea and put It with meat
and milk and doughnuts and bread and
butter un (lie table for them. Sainton
wasted ami httlidugeil the boy's
wound. The captives ate as If they
were hungry, while the nenlster went
out to f I his dog. When Ihe men
had flushed eating Satuson offered
them tobacco. The oldest man tilled
his pipe mid lighted it with a coal.
Not one of tie captives had said a
