CHAPTER IX. Continued.
I had worked myself into a jrreat
passion and fairly ronred my chal
lenge, pounding the table In my rage.
"Yes, Fir; I quite understand you,
sir. Put I'm afraid, sir "
"Of course you're afraid!" I shouted,
enraged anew by his halting speech.
"You have every reason in the world
to be afraid. You've probably heard
that I'm a bad lot and a worthless ad
venturer; but you can tell Sister The
resa or Pickering or anybody you
please that I'm ten times as bad as
I've ever been painted. Now clear out
I knocked about the library all morn
ing without easing my spirit, and
after luncheon I went off for a tramp.
Winter had indeed come and pos
- teased the earth, and it had given me
a new landscape. The snow continued
to fall in great, heavy flakes, and the
ground was whitening fast.
A rabbit's track caught my eye and
I followed it, hardly conscious that I
did so. Then the clear print of two
small shoes mingled with the rabbit's
trail. A few moments later I picked
up an overshoe, probably lost in the
chase by one of Sister Theresa's girls.
I reflected. I remembered that while 1
at Tech I had collected a diversity of
memorabilia from school girl acquaint
ances, and here I was beginning a
new series with 0 string of beads and

so "lusive, and the little fellows have,
I am sure, a shrewd humor peculiar to
themselves. I rather envied the school
plrl who had ventured forth for a walk
in 'he first snow storm of the season,
and recalled Aldrich's turn on Gau
tlet's lines as I followed the double

A pretty autograph, indeed! The
sntw feil steadily and 1 tramped on
ov r the Joint signature of the girl and
the rabbit. Near the lake they parted
coiipany, the rabbit leading off at a
tangent, on a line parallel with the
like, while his pursuer's steps pointed
toward the boat house.
There was, so far as I knew, only
one student of adventurous blood at
St. Agatha's, and I was not in the least
surprised to see, on the little sheltered
balcony of the boat house, the red tam
o' shanter. She wore, too, the covert
coat 1 remembered from the day I paw
her fit si from the wall. Her back was
toward sue as I drew near; her hand
were thrust Into her pockets. She.
aa evidently enjoying the soft ming
ling of the snow with the mill, blue
waters of the lake; and a girl and a
snow storm are, if you auk my opin
ion, a pretty combination. The fact of
a girl's facing a winter storm argues
mightily In her favor. testifies, if you
will allow me, to a serene and daunt
less spirit fur one thing, and a sound
constitution for another.
I run up the steps, my cap In one
hand, her overshoe In the other. She
drew buck a trlll Just enough to bring
p.i conscience to Its knees.

Sho thrust them Into her pocket.
"Of course they're mine," Kho said
Indignantly, and turned to go.
"We'll waive proof of property and
thnt sort of thing. I'm sorry not to
establish a more neighborly feeling
with St. Agatha's. The stone wall
may seem formidable,, but it's not of
my building. I must open the gate.
That wall's a trifle steep for climbing."
I was amusing myself with the Idea
that my identity was a dark mystery
to her. I had read -Kngllsh novels la
which the young lord of the manor is
always mistaken for the game keeper's
son by the pretty daughter of the
curate who has come home from school
to be the belles of the county. Hut my
lady of the red tam-o'-shanter was not
a creature of illusions.
"It serves a very good purpose the
wall. I mean Mr. Glenarm."
She was walking down the steps and
I followed, pleased to hear my name
from her lips. I am not a man to suf
fer a lost school girl to crosa my lands
unattended In a snow storm; and the
piazza of a boat house Is not, I submit,
a pleasant loafing place on a winter
day. She marched before me, her
hands In her pockets I liked her par
ticularly that way with an easy swing
and a light and certain step. Her re
mark about the wall did not encourage
further conversation and I fell back
upon the poets.
"Sliti wat's itii not n prison make,
Nor Iron burs a luge,"
"I have heard that before!" she
said, half turned her face and laughed
as she hastened on.
Her brilliant cheeks were a delight j

Here, I thought In my admiration. Is a
real product of tins Western owrld. I
felt that we had made stride toward
such a comradeship as It is proper
should exist between a school girl In
he teens and a male neighbor of 27.
I was going back to Kngllsh fiction
the young squire walking home with
the curate's pretty young daughter
and conversing with fine condescen
sion. "We girls all wish we could come
over and help hunt the lost treasure.
It must be simply splendid to live In
a house where there's a mystery se
cret passages and chests of doubloons
and all that sort of thing! My! Squire
Glenarm. I suppose you spend all
your nights exploring secret pass
ages?" This free expression of opinion
startled me, though she 6eemed who!
ly innocent of Impei tlneiice.
"Who says there's any secret about
the house?" I demanded.

mantic, and we call you sometimes
the lord of the realm, and when we
see you walking through the daikllng
wood at evenfall we say, 'My lord is
brooding upon the treasure chests.' "
This, delivered In the stilted tone
of one who was ha'.f quoting and half
improvising, was Irresistibly funny,
and I laughed with good will.

An Old Suit Revived.
A lawsuit that has been la tho
courts H2 )enrs wus argued asnln In
tho supreme court recently. All of
the original purlieu to the suit have
died Ions; ago. The sawyers who
brought the original case in 1875 and
the Judge who tried It first have nho
died, as have all except two of the
witnesses. The suit grew out of a
contract that was- made In 1870, by J
tne terms or w hich w lilium S. Sugg,
then a merchant at Kennett in
Dunklin county, contracted with the
county court of Punklln to make the
Vamer and St. Francis rivers navi
gable within the county for boats 100
feet long and 2u feet wide, and was
paid for the work with a deed for
2o,iM0 acres of land in the swamp
district of the county. Pugg became
deeply Involved In debt and one day
transferred to hi brother. Wiley P.
Sugg, all the land for H.'JBrt and a
contract by which his brother egrecd
to finish the work. William Sugsf
soon went Into bankruptcy. -The
brother bought a small boat and dug
some snags out of the channel but
did not spend much money on his
work. The creditors of William S.
Sugg brought suit to set aside the
conveyance as fraudulent, the St.
Francis Mill company taking the lead
ing part. Wiley P. Sugg, while d nw.
Ing that there was any port of fraud
In the conveyance, offered to pay Slis
brother's debts if the creditors would
uike land at $10 per acre. That price
siemed preposterous nt that time,
though the land Is now- worth Hon an
acre. It is of the finest alluvial soli,
