Thu rifr Wee s Liuilncrtilg In the frosty
light The mountains with their shin
log heads piercing through the light
claudIO Into that wonderful blue of the
western sky and their fret pushed Into
the 1lne masses Razed down upon
Block Bock with calm kindly looks on
their old gray face How one Brow
to love them steadfast old friends
Far UI > among the pines we could are
the smoke of the engine at the works
slain and ro atlll and so clear was the moun
lain nlr that we could bear the puff of
the strum and from far down the river
the murmur of the rapids The majes
tic allencf tho tender beauty the
pence the loneliness too came steal
log In upon ua aa we three leaving
Mrs Mayor behind UK marched arm
In arm down the street We had not
Bono far on our way when Jrneme
turning round stood a moment looking
back then waved his hand In farewell
Mrs Mayor was at her window amll
hade
crown to be great friends these two
and seemed to have arrived at some
understanding Certainly Graemes
manner to her was not that he bore to
other women Ills half qulttlcal some
what sujwrlor air of mocking devotion
Rave place to a simple earnest almost
tender respect very new to him but
very winning
An he stood there waving bla fare
well I glanced at his face and saw for
a moment what I had not seen for
years a faint flush on Oraemca cheek
and a light of simple earnest faith In
his eyes It reminded me of my first
look of him when he had come up for
his matriculation to the varsity He
stood on the campus looking up at the
noble old pile and there was the lame
bright trustful earnest look on him
boyish face
I know not what spirit possessed me
it may have been the pain of the
memory working In mebut I Bold
coarsely enough
Its no use Graeme my boy I
would fall In love with her myself but
there would be no chance even for
meThe
The flush slowly darkened aa he
turned and HId deliberately
Its not like you Connor to be an
ass of that > ocullar kind Love Not
exactly She wont fall In love un
less 1 And ho stopped abruptly with
bla eyes upon Craig
Hut Craig mctWra with unshrinking
ante quietly rem sjipg Her heart la
under the pines And wo moved on
each thinking his own thoughts and
guessing at the thoughts of the other
We were on our way to Cralga
aback and aa we passed the saloon
Hlavln stepped from the door with a
Mlutatlon Graeme paused
Hello Niacin I got rather the
worst of It didnt IT
Blnvln mme near and said earnestly
It was a dirty trick altogether
Youll not think It was mine Mr
GraemeNo
No no Slavln Ton stood up like a
man said Graeme cheerfully
And you boat me fair and bedad It
was a neat one that laid me out and
theres no grudge In my heart till you
All right Slavln Well perhaps un
derstand each other better after this
And thats true for you air and Ill
sec that your boys dont get any more
than they ask for replied Slavln
backing away
And I hope that wont bo much
put In Mr Craig but Slavln only grin
ned
nedWhen
Crailiback
back Graeme was glad to rest In the
big chair
Craig made him a cup of tea while I
smoked admiring much the deft neat
tress of the ministers housekeeping
and the gentle almost motherly way
waTbo
In our talk we drifted Into the future
and Craig let ua see what were his am
Moon The railway was soon to come
The resources were ai yet unexplored
but enough was known to assure a
great future for British Colombia Aa
he talked his enthusiasm grew and car
ried us away With the eye of a gen
eral bo surveyed the country fixed the
strategic points which the church must
seize upon Klght good men would hold
the country from Fort Steele to the
coast and from Kootcnal to Caribou
The church must be In with the rail
way She must have a hand In the
shaping of the country If society crys
tallizes without her Influence the coun
try la lost and Ilrltlsh Columbia will
be another trapdoor to the bottomless
pit
What do you pro OeT I asked
Organizing a little congregation here
In lllack Itock
How many will you gtr
Dont know
Pretty hopeless business I said
Hopeless IlopeltssP he cried
There were only twelve of us at lint
to follow him nnd rather a poor lot
they were nut he braced them up and
they conquered tho world
Hut surely things nre different said
Graeme Things Yes yes but ho Is the
same
sameIlls face had an exalted look and his
eyes were gazing Into faraway place
A dozen men In lllack hock with
some real grip of him would mako
things go Well get them too be
went on In growing excitement I be
lieve J in nir oyl well pet them
imaarc ° TrrYdorganize
I Id like to Join said Graeme Impul
sively I dont lllcvo much In your
creed or your church but Ill lie blow
I cd If I dont believe In you
Craig looked nt him With wistful
eyes and shook bid bead
It wont do old chap you know I
cant hold you Youve got to have a
grip of some one better thaw I am and
then besides I hardly like asking you
now He hesitated Well to bo out
and out this step must be takeu not
fur my sake or for any mans sake and
I fancy that perhaps you feel like
pleasing me just now a little
That I do old fellow said Graeme
putting out Ids hand Ill be banged If 1
I wont do anything you say
Thats why I wont say replied
Craig Then reverently he added The
organization Is not mine It la my Mad
tars
tersWhen
When are you going to begin
asked Graeme
We shall have our communion sere
ice In two weeks and that will be our
roll call
rollcalLlIow
How many will answer I asked
doubtfully
I know of three be said quietly
Three There are 200 miners and
150 lumbermen Threel And Graeme
looked at him In amazement You
think It worth while to organize
three T
threeWell
Well replied Craig smiling for the
e
first time the organization wont be
elaborate but It will be effective and
besides loyalty demands obedience
We sat long that afternoon talking
shrinking from the breaking up for we
knew that we were about to turn down
a chapter In our lives which we should
delight to linger over In after days and
In my life there la I but one brighter At
last we said goodby and drove away
and though many farewells have come
In between that day and this none Iso Is I
so vividly present to me aa that be
tween us three men Craigs manner
with me was solemn enough
He that loveth his llfogoodby
Dont fool with this was what he
said to me but when he turned to
Graeme his whole face lighted up He
took him by the shoulders and gave
him a little shake looking Into his
eyes and saying over and over In a low
sweet tone
Youll come old chap youll come
youll come Tell me youll come
And Graeme could say nothing In re
ply but only looked at him Then
they silently shook hands and we
drove off but long after wo had got
over the mountain and Into the wind
Ing forest road on the way to the lum
tier camp the voice kept vibrating In
my heart Youll come youll come
and there was a hot pain In my throat
We said little during the drhe to the
camp Graeme was thinking hard and
made no answer when I spoke to him
two or three times till we came to the
deep shadows of the pine forest when
with a little shiver be said
It Is I all a tangle a hopeless tan
gle
Meaning whatr I asked
This business of religion What
quaint varieties Kelsons Geordles
Hilly IJreensIt bo has any then Mrs
Msvors she Is a saint of course
and that fellow Craigs What a trump
be 1st And without his religion hed
be pretty much like the rest of us It
Is I too much for me
Ills mystery waa not mine Black
hock varieties of religion were certain
ly startling but there Will undoubt
edly the streak of reality through them
all and that discovery I felt to bo a
distinct gain

CHAPTER VII
THE FIRST BLACK BOCK coinomiox
1IIE gleam of the great fire
TlIE
T through the windows of the
great camp gave a kindly
welcome as we drove Into
the clearing In w + h the shanties
stood Graeme wo greatly touched
at his enthusiast welcome by the
men At the supper table he made a
little speech of thanks for their faith
fulness during his absence specially
commending the can and efficiency
of Mr Nelson who bad bad charge of
the camp The men cheered wildly
Daptlstca shrill voice leading all Nel
son being called upon expressed In a
few words his pleasure at seeing the
boss back and thanked the men for
their support while be had been In
charge
The men were for making a night
of It but fearing the effect upon
Granules spoke to Nelson who pass
passed
the camp was quiet As we saun
ereo rrom the grub camp to the office
where was our bed wo paused to take
In the beauty of the night The moon
redo high over the peaks of the moun
tains flooding the narrow valley with
mellow light Under her magic the
rugged peaks softened their harshIlnes
and seemed to lean lovingly toward us
The dark pIne masses stood silent as
In breathless adoration The dazzling
snow lay like a garment over all the
open spaces In soft waving folds and
crowded every stump with a quaintly
shaped nightcap Above the camps the
smoke curled up from the campfires
standing like pillars of cloud that kept
watch while men slept and high over
all the deep blue night sky with Its
Inr Jewel anrneg IMP the root or II
J
covering us la Its kindly shelter How
homelike and safe teemed the valley
with its mountain aides Its sentinel
trees and arching roof of jeweled sky
Even tho night seemed kindly and
friendly the stars and the lono cry of
the wolf from the deep forest seemed
liie tae vests o n forndc
How beautiful Too beautiful said
Graeme stretching out his arms A
night like this takes the heart out of
meI
I stood silent drinking In at every
sense the night with its wealth of
loveliness
lovelinessWhat
What Is It I wants he went on
Why does the night make ray heart
ache There are things to sec and
things to hear Just beyond me I can
not get to them
The gar careless look was gone from
his face Ills dark eyes were wistful
with yearning
I often wonder If life has nothing
better for me he continued with his
heartache voice
I said no word butput my arm with
in his A light appeared In the stable
saidd
What Is the light Let us go and
sec
secSandy taking a last look at his
enoughd
We walked slowly toward the stable
speaking no word As we neared the
door we heard the sound of a voice In
the monotone of one reading I stepped
forward and looked through a chink be
tween the logs Graeme was about to
open tho door but I held up ray hand
and beckoned him to me In n vacant
stall where was a pile of straw a
number of men were grouped Sandy
leaning against tbo tying post upon
which the stable lantern hung was
reading Nelson was kneeling In front
of him and gazing Into the gloom be
yond Baptlstc lay upon his stomach
his chin In his bands and his upturned
eyea fastened upon Sandys face
Lachlan Campbell sat with his hands
clasped about his knees and two other
men sat near him Sandy was reading
the undying story of the prodigal Nel
son now and then stopping him to
make a remark It was a scene I have
havee
pause In my tale and see It as clearly
as when I looked through the chink
n Oolt yean ago the long low stable
with log walls and upright bitching
poles the dim outline of the horses In
the gloom of the background and the
little group of rough almost savage
wonderingt
and reverent lighted by the misty light
of the stable lantern
After the reading Sandy banded the
book to Nelson who put It In his pock
et saying
Thats for us boys aint Itl
Aye said Lachlan It Is often
that has been read In my bearing but
I am afraid It will not be for me what
ever And be swayed himself slightly
as be spoke and bis voice was full of
painThe
The minister said I might come
said old Nelson earnestly and hope
fully
Aye but you are not Lachlan Camp
bell and you have not had his privi
leges My father was a godly elder In
the Free Church of Scotland and nev
er a night or morning but we took the
booksYes
Yes but he said any man per
sisted Nelson putting his band on
Lacblana knee but Lachlan book his
headDat
Dat young feller said Baptlste
where bees nerd hehj
He has no name It Is just a para
ble explained Sandy
lIes got no nem Hes Just a par
amble Du no young feller asked
Bsptlste anxiously Dna mean not
Ing
Then Nelson took him In band and
explained to him the meaning while
Baptlste listened even more eagerly
ejaculating softly Ah vollat I Bout
By garl When Nelson had finished
be broke out Dat young feller hla
name Baptlste heh And de old Fad
derbes lo bon DIeD Bon Daa good
story for me How yon go back You
go to de pries
The book doesnt say priest or any
one else said Nelson You go back in
yourself you seer
Non das sc sure null Ahl Ae If
a light broke in upon him Ton go in
your own self You make one leetl
prayer You say Lo bon Fadder on I
want come back I so tire so hongree
so sorree Ho say Come right long
Ah das fuss ratel Nelson you make
one leetle prayer for Sandy and me
Nelson lifted up his face and said
Father were all gone far away we
have spent all we are poor we are
tired of It all we want to feel differ
ent to be different wo want to come
back Jesus came to save us from our
sins and he said If we came he
wouldnt cast us out no matter bow
bad we were if we only came to him
O Jesus Christ and his old Iron face
began to work ono two big tears slow
ly came from under hIs eyelids we
are a poor lot and Im the wont of the
lot and we are trying to find tho way
Show us bow to get back Amen
Boar said Baptlste Das fetch
him surer
Graeme pulled mo away and with
out a word we went Into the office and
drew up to the little store Graeme
was greatly annoyed
Did you ever see anything like
thatr be askedold Nelson the hard
est savagest toughest old sinner In the
camp on his knee before a lot of
menPBefore
Before God I could not help say
Ing for the thing seemed very real to
me The old man evidently felt himself
talking to some one
Yes I suppose youre right said
Graeme doubtfully hut theres a lot
of stuff I cant swallow
When you take medicine you dont
