(Reported by R. C. Hayncs.)
Continued from last week
Our readers who have tollowed
story, as given in thi3
Inst week, know that we left
that young gentleman, wiih his
riage license in his pocket, fleeing the j
town cf Marion in all speet', .
heading toward Fords Ferrv. They
know, too, that he was being hotly
pursued by the Bheriff and his swat
going assistants, they having ample
proof that he was the scoundrel who
struck Bobby Broadway and, as High-field
Jones expressed it, "put his light
out." But we will now let Zebulum
continue hi3 own story in his own way.
"The town marshall was in front-not
because he was more anxious than
the others to annihilate the space between
mo and them, but because he
had the longest leg3. The sheriff's
running-gear, however, was not to be
grinned at, besides he had the best
wind. He also had an idea, perhaps,
that as he ranked first as an officer of
the law, his proper position was at the
he.id of the procession when it came to
running down fugitives from justice.
"So the next time I looked back the
sheriff was in the lead, with the town
marshall and Highfield Jones right behind
him, while the deputy and Solo-man
Wiggleford followed closely upon
the hefils of the others. Highfield
Jones carried in his hand a big walking
stick with a crook on the end of it.
He would wave the stick in the air,
the crook upward and outward, as
though to make the impression that he
would hook it around my neck if he got
close enough to me.
"I was about one hundred yards in
advance and they were coming after
mo in full tilt, arranged in the order
just named, atill yelling and waving
their hands frantically and pounding the
earth with their ten feet, leaving great
clouds of dust behind them.
"Though I was accounted a reasonably
swift runner in those days, I was
not, of course, a match for those officers
of the law who were well trained
in such matters, same as now. I soon
discovered that they were thoroughly

between Marion and Crooked

space between us. Though I geared

"But I didn't give up. Feeling in
my pocket to see if the license was
still there, I plunged on and on. I
could hear them pawing the earth with
their feet and puffing like minature
steam engines. I could almost feel
the grip of the sheriff's hand on the
back of my neck.
"When they were within only a few
feet of me and, with victory almost
theirs, were coming on with renewed
energy, I looked back. Just then 1
saw Highfield Jones, with u sly and
apparently unintentional movement,
hook his walking-stick around the
sheriff's right foot, entangling his legs
and hurling that official headlong to the
ground, J nes himself falling like a
heavy log beside him. The town marshal,
the deputy and Solomon Wiggle-ford,
coming in full headway right behind
them and not expecting anything
of the kind, couldn't adjust the proper
brakes in time to prevent a general
wreck, the three, turning various sum
mersaults in the air and making all
kinds of geometric figures with their
arms and legs, went down sprawling
on top of the sheriff and Highfield

maneuvers if I had had time. But I .

feet. I could not hear what they I raged. I had no thought of giving up.
RntH but from certain motions l could'nt do it. I thought of the mar-
thoy were making, I felt confident that
tho atmosphere thereabout was
and that those officers of the
law and promoters of peace were about
to declare war among themselves.
Wise counsel, peihaps, prevailed, however,
and they did not resort to blows.
Perhaps it was because they had more
urgent business on hand.
"By the time they got themselves
properlv adjusted and the dust wiped
out of their pyes so they could see tho
road, I was about two hundred yards
in advance of them and going in full
tilt. Having got started again, Jio-over,
they came down the road in a
mighty rush, like a young cyclone,
great cloud3 of dust rising from their
path. They were ovidently making up
for lost time.
"On I ran, up hill and down, and on
they came after me I was now

yards ahead of my pursuers.
"At that time there was no bridge
acros3 Ciookcd creek where the road
crosses the stream. At most seasons
of the year horseback travelers could
ford the creek without much difficultly
but those who journejed afoot had to .
cross on a foot log, which spanned the
stream just below the ford.
' When I came to the cieek I mount-'
cd the foot-log and ran across to the
other side of the stream. The creek
at that place runs from the east to the
west and the foot-log had been cut
down trom the not Hi side, the butt of
the log testing on the stump, which
stood on the edge of the high bank.
Tno log was held onto the stump by a
thin strip of wood which the woodman's
ax had hparcd when he felled

"I am by nature tender-hearted, and
I dislike to treat my county officials in
such a manner, but, I reflected, everything
is fair in love, especially if one
is about to be married.
"I knew that the sheriff and his party
would have to go back to the south
side of the creek, as the banks on the
north side is too steep, and would then
have to go a considerable distance down
the stream to another footlog.
"Not having time to see what they
would do when they got out of the wat.
er, I again started on the journey.
T.ie road was now up-grade and necessarily
I had to slacken my speed,
starting off in a walk. I had some
hope that the sheriff and his assistants
would become discouraged, give up the
chase and leturn home. However, all
hope in that direction was soon dispelled.

the road I looked back and saw the
