with Abe, to "get back at 'em."
We had no difficulty getting them out.
Abe began to yell. Some men rushed
out to learn the cause. He seized the
foremost man, making a hideous up
roar all the while, and in three minutes
had every man out of the hotel and a
lively row going on.
In two minutes more Graeme and I
had the door of the ballroom locked
and barricaded with empty casks. We
then closed the door of the barroom
leading to the outside. The barroom
was a strongly built log shack, with a
heavy door secured, after the manner
of the earl cabins, with two strong
oak bars, so hat we felt safe from at
tack from that quarter.
The ballroom we could not hold long,
for the door was slight and entrance
was possible through the window. But
as only a few casks of liquor were left
there our main work would be in the
bar, so that the fight would be to hold
the passageway. This we barricaded
with casks and tables. But by this
time the crowd had begun to realize
what had happened and- were wildly
yelling at door and windows. With an
ax which Graeme had brought with
him the casks were soon stove in and
left to empty themselves.
As I was about to empty the last
cask Graeme stopped me, saying: "Let
that stand here. It will help us." And
so it did. "Now skip for the barri
cadet" yelled Graeme as a man came
crashing through the window. But be
fore he could regain his feet Graeme
had seized him and flung him out upon
the heads of the crowd outside. But
through the other windows men were
coming in, and Graeme rushed for the
barricade, followed by two of the ene
my, the foremost of whom I received
at the top and hurled back upon the
"Now be quick!" said Graeme. "I'll
hold this. Don't break any bottles on
the floor. Throw them out there,"
pointing to a little window high up in
I made all haste. The casks did not
take much time, and soon the whisky
and beer were flowing over the floor.
It made me think of Geordie's regret
over the "sinfu' waste." The bottles
took longer, and, glancing up now and
then, I saw that Graeme was being
hard pressed. Men would leap, two
ind three at a time, upon the barricade,
and Graeme's arms would shoot out,
and over they would topple upon the
eads of those nearest. It was a great.
sight to see him standing alone, with
a smile on his face and the light of bat
te in his eye, coolly meeting his as
sailants with those terrific, lightning
like blows. In fifteen minutes my work
"What next?" I asked. "How do we
"How is the door?" he replied.
I looked through the porthole and
"A crowd of men waiting."
"We'll have to make a dash for it, I1
fancy," he replied cheerfully, though
his face was covered with blood and
his breath was coming in short gasps.
"Get down the bars and be ready."
But even as he spoke a chair hurled
from below caught him on the arm,
and before he could recover a man had
cleared the barricade and was upon
him like a tiger. It was Idaho Jack.
"Hold the barricade:" Graeme called
out as they both went down.
I sprang to his place, but I had not
much hope of holding it long. I had
the heavy oak bar of the door in my
hands, and, swinging it round my head,
I made the crowd give back for a few
Meantime Graeme had shaken off his
enemy, who was circling about him
upon his tiptoes, with a long knife In
his hand, waiting for a chance to
"I have been waiting for this for
some time, Mr. Graeme," he said, smil
"Yes," replied Graeme, "ever since I
soiled your cutthroat game in Frisco.
How is the little one?" he added sar
Idaho's face lost Its smile and became
distorted with fury as he replied, spit
ting out his words:
'She-is-where you will be before 1
am done with you."
"Ah, you murdered her too! You'll
hang some beautiful day, Idaho," said
Graeme as Idaho sprang upon him.
Graeme dodged his blow and caught
his forearm with his left hand and held
up high the murderous knife. Back
and forward they swayed over the
loor, slippery with whisky, the knife
held high in the air. I wondered why
Graeme did not strike, and then I saw
his right hand hung limp from the
wrist. The men were crowding upon
the barricade. I was in despair.
Graeme's strength was going fast.
With a yell of exultant fury Idaho
threw himself with all his weight upon
Graeme, who could only cling to him.
They swayed together toward me, but
as they fell I brought down my bar
upon the upraised hand and sent the
knife flying across the room. Idaho's
howl of rage and pain was mingled
with a shout from below, and there,
dashing the crowd to right and left,
came old Nelson, followed by Abe, San
dy, Baptiste, Shaw and others. As
they reached the barricade it crashed
down and, carrying me with it, pinned
Looking out between the barrels, I
saw what froze my heart with horror.
In the fall Graemae had wound his
arms about his enemy and held him
in a grip so deadly that he could not
strike, but Graeme's strength was fail
ing, and when I looked I saw that Ida
ho was slowly dragging both across
the slippery floor to where the knife
lay. Nearer and nearer his outstretch
ed fingers came to the knife. In vain
I yelled and struggled. My voice was
lost in the awful din, and the barri
cade held me fast. Above me, stand
ing on a barrel head, was Baptiste,
yelling like a demon. In vain I called
to him. My fingers could just reach
his foot, and he heeded not at all my
touch. Slowly Idaho was dragging his
almost unconscious victim toward the
knife. Ills fingers were touching the
blade point when, under a sudden in
spiration. I pulled out my penknife,
opened it with my teeth and drove the
blade into Baptiste's foot. With a
bloodcurdling yell he sprang down and
began dancing round in his rage, peer
"Look: Look!" I was calling in ago
ny and pointing. "For heaven's sake,
The fingers had closed upon the knife,
the knife was already high in the air,
when, with a shriek, Baptiste cleared
the room at a bound, and before the
knife could fall the little Frenchman's
boot had caught the uplifted wrist and
sent the knife flying to the wall.
Then there was a great rushing
sound as of wind through the forest,
and the lights went out. When I
awoke, I found myself lying with my
head on Graeme's knees and Baptiste
sprinkling snow on my face. As I
looked up Graeme leaned over, and,
smiling down into my eyes, he said:
"Good boy! It was a great fight, and
we put it up well." And then he whis
pered, "I owe you my life, my boy."
His words thrilled my heart through
and through, for I loved him as only
men can love men, but I only answer
"I could not keep them back."
"It was well done," he said, and I
I confess I was thankful to be so
well out of it, for Graeme got off with
a bone in his wrist broken and I with
a couple of ribs cracked, but had it not
been for the open bairel of whisky
which kept them occupied for a time,
offering too good a chance to be lost,
and for the timely arrival of Nelson,
neither of us had ever seen the light
We found Craig' sound asleep upon
is couch. His consternation on wak
ng to see us torn, bruised and bloody
vas laughable, but he hastened to find
is warm water and bandages, and ;we
;oon felt comfortable.
Baptiste was radiant with pride and
lelight over the fight and hovered
ibout Graeme and me, giving vent to
is feelings in admiring French and
English expletives. But Abe was dis
,usted because of the failure at Sla
rin's, for when Nelson looked in he saw
lavin's Trench Canadian wife in
yharge, with her baby on her lap, and
ie came back to Shaw and said, "Come
away; we can't touch this," and Shaw,
ifter looking in, agreed that nothing
!ould be done. A baby held the fort.
As Craig listened to the account of
:he fight he tried hard not to approve,
)ut he could not keep the gleam out of
is eyes, and as I pictured Graeme
lashing back the crowd thronging the
jarricade till he was brought down by
:h chair Craig laughed gently and put
his hand on Graeme's knee, and as I
went on to describe my agony while
Idaho's fingers were gradually nearing
the knife his face grew pale and his
eyes grew wide with horror.
"Baptiste here did the business," I
said, and the little Frenchman nodded
complacently and said:
"Dat's me for sure."
"By the way, how is your foot?" ask
"He's fuss rate. Dat's what you call
-one bite of-of-dat leel bees. He's
ere; you put your finger dere, he's not
ere. What you call'him?"
"Flea!" I suggested.
"Oui"' cried Baptiste. "Dat's one
bite of fl'a."
"I was thankful I was under the
barrels," I replied, smiling.
"Oui! Dat's mak me ver mad. I
Jump and swear mos awful bad. Dat's
pardon me, M'sleu Craig, heh?"
But Craig only smiled at him rather
"It was awfully risky," he said to
Graeme, "and it was hardly worth It.
'hey'll get more whisky, and anyway
the league is gone."
"Well," said Graeme, with a. sigh of
satisfaction, "it Is not quite such a
one sided affair as it was."
And we could say nothing In reply,
for we could hear Nixon snoring in the
next room, and no one had heard of
Billy, and there were others of the
league that we knew were even now
:own at Slavin's. It was thought best
that all should remain in Mr. Craig's
shack, not knowing what might hap
pen, and so we lay where we could,
nd we needed none to sing us to
When I awoke, stiff and sore, it was
to find breakfast ready and old man
Nelson in charge. As we were seated
raig came in, and I saw that he was
aot the man of the night before. His
yourage had come back; his face was
iuiet and his eye clear. He was his
>wn man again.
"Geordle has been out all night, but
bas failed to find Billy," he announced
We did not talk much. Graeme and
[ worried with our broken bones, and
the others suffered from a general
uoring depression. But after break
fast, as the men were beginning to
nove, Craig took down his Bible, and,
saying, "Wait a few minutes, men,"
be read slowly, in his beautiful, clear
oice, that psalm for all fighters,
"God is our refuge and strength,"
and so on to the noble words:
"The Lord of Hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge."
How the mighty words pulled .us to
~ether, lifted us till we grew ashamed
>f our Ignoble rage and of our ignoble
And then Craig prayed in simple,
traightgoing words. There- was ac
Inowledgment of failure, but I knew
:e was thinking chiefly of himself;
:here was gratitude, and that was for
:he men about him, and I felt my face
urn with shame; there was a petition
'or help, and we all thought of Nixon
mud Billy and the men wakening from
:heir debauch at Slavin's this pure,
right morning. Then he asked that
ye might be made faithful and worthy
>f God, whose battle It was. Then we
ill stood up and shook hands with him
n silence, and every man knew a coy
mant was being made. But none saw
1s meeting with Nixon. He sent us all
way before that.
Nothing was heard of the destruction
f the hotel stock in trade. Unpleasant
uestions would certainly be asked,
and the proprietor decided to let bad
lone. On the point of respectability
:he success of the ball was not con
spicuous, but the antileague men were
:ontent If not jubilant.
Billy Breen was found by Geordie
late in the afternoon in his own old
and deserted-shack, breathing heavily,
:overed up in his filthy, moldering bed
lothes, with a half empty bottle of
whisky at his side. Geordie's grief and
-age were beyond even his Scotch con
trol. He spoke few words, but these
were of such concentrated vehemence
that no one felt the need of Abe's as
sistance in vocabulary.
Poor Billy! We carried him to Mrs.
lavor'.s home, put him in a warm
bath, rolled him in blankets and gave
him little sips of hot water, then of
hot milk and coffee, as I had seen a
lver doctor in the hospital treat a
similar case of nerve and heart de
pression. But the already weakened
system could not recover from the aw
ful shock of the exposure following the
[ebauch, and on Sunday afternoon we
saw that his heart was failing fast
All day the miners had been dropping
in to iucquire after him, for Billy had
been a great favorite in other days,
and the attention ef the town had been

these last weeks. rt iias with no ordi
nary sorrow that the news of his con
dition was received. As Mrs. Mfavor
sang to him his large, coarse hands
moved in time to the music, but he did
not open his eyes till he heard Mr.
Craig's voice in the next room. Then
he spoke his name, and Mr. Craig was
kneeling beside him in a moment. The
words came slowly:
"Oi tried-to fight hit hout-but-Oi
got beaten. Hit 'arts to think 'e's
ashamed o' me. Oi'd like t'a done bet
"Ashamed of you, Billy!" said Craig
in a voice that broke. "Not he."
"And-ye hall-'elped me so!" he went
on. "01 wish Oi'd 'a' done better-Ol
do." And his eyes sought Geordie and
then rested on Mrs. Mavor, who smiled
back at him with a world of love in
her eyes. "You hain't hashamed o' me
-yore heyes saigh so," he said, look
ing at her.
"No, Billy," she said, and I wonder
ed at her steady voice, "not a bit.
Why, Billy, I am proud of you."
He gazed up at her with wonder and
ineffable love in his little eyes, then
lifted his hand slightly toward her.
She knelt quickly and took it in both
of hers, stroking it and kissing it.
"01 haught t'a done better. Oi'm
hawful sorry 01 went back on 'im. Hit
was the lemonalde. The boys didn't
mean no 'arm, but hit started the 'ell
Geordie hurled out some bitter words.
"Don't be 'ard on 'em, Geordie. They
didn't mean no 'arm," he said, and his
eyes kept waiting till Geordie said hur
"Na, na, lad! I'll juist leave them till
Then Mrs. Mayor sang softly, smooth
ing his hand, "Just as I Am," and Billy
dozed quietly for half an hour.
When he awoke again, his eyes turn
ed to Mr. Craig, and they were trou
bled and anxious.
"Oi tried 'ard. Oi wanted to win,"
he struggled to say.
By this time Craig was master of
himself, and he answered in a clear,
"Listen, Billy. You made a great
fight, and you are going to win yet.
And, besides, do you remember the
sheep that got lost over the moun
tains?" This parable was Billy's spe
cial delight. "He didn't beat it when
he got it, did he? He took it in his
arms and carried it home, and so he
will you." -
And Billy, keeping his eyes fastened
on Mr. Craig, simply said:
"Sure!" said Craig.
"Will 'e?" he repeated, turning his
eyes upon Mrs. Mayor.
"Why, yes, Billy," she answered
cheerily, though the tears were stream
ing from her eyes. "I would, and he
loves you far more."
He looked at her, smiled and closed
his eyes. I put my hand on his heart.
It was fluttering feebly. Again a trou
bled look passed over his face.
"My-poor-hold-mother!" he whis
"I shall take care of her, Billy," said
Mrs. Mayor in a clear voice, and again
Billy smiled. Then he turned his eyes
to Mr. Craig and trom him to Geordie
and at last to Mrs. Mayor, where they
rested. She bent over and kissed him
twice on the forehead.
"Tell 'er," he said, with difficulty, "e's
took me 'ome."
"Yes, Billy!" she cried, gazing into
his glazing eyes.
He tried to lift her hand. She kissed
him again, He drew one deep breath
and lay quite still,
"Thank the blessed Saviour!" said
Mr. Craig reverently. "He has taken
But Mrs. Mayor held the dead hand
tight and sobbed out passionately:
"Oh, Billy, Billy, you helped me once
when I needed help! I cannot forget!"
And Geordie, groaning, "Aye, laddie,
laddie!" passed out into the fading light
of the early evening.
Next day no one went to work, for to
all it seemed a sacred day. They car
ried him into the little church, and
there Mr. Craig spoke of his long, hard
fight and of his final victory, for he
died without a fear and with love to
the men who, not knowing, had been
his death. And there was no bitter
ness in any heart, for Mr. Craig read
the story of the sheep and told how
gently he had taken Billy home; but,
though no 'word was spoken, it was
there the league was made again.
They laid him under the pines beside
Lewis Mayor, and the miners threw
sprigs of evergreen into the open
grave. When Slavin, sobbing bitterly,
brought his sprig, no one stopped him,
though all thought it strange.
As we turned to leave the grave the
light from the evening sun came soft
ly through the gap in the mountains
and, filling the valley, touched the trees
and the little mound beneath with glo
ry, and I thought of that other glory
which Is brighter than the sun and
was not sorry that poor Billy's weary
fight was over, and I could not help
agreeing with Craig that it was there
the league had its revenge.
