"Business is business," replied New

the secret purc-hnse of the California
tiniberlands from Trace lie became an
unwitting participant in one of the
str.'.ugest duels known to business his
tory. New mark opposed to him all the
subtleties, all the ruses and expedients
to which his position lent itself. Ordo,
sublimely unconscious, deployed the
magnificent resources of strength, en
ergy, organization and combative spirit
that animated his pioneer's soul.
Newmark worked uuder this disad
vantage: IJ had carefully to avoid the
slightest appearance of an attitude In
imical to the firm's very best prosperi
ty. If the smallest incident should bring
clearly before Orde that Newmark
might have an Interest in reducing
profits he would know the logic of the
latter's devious ways. For this reason
Newmark did not dare make bad sales,
awkward transactions. The profits of
the first year were not quite tip to the
usual standard, but they sufficed.

EWMARK marched precisely
down the street to Ileinzman's
office. He found the little Ger
man In. Newmark demanded
n private Interview and without pre
liminary plunged into the business that
had brought him.
"Heinzman." said he abruptly, "my
partner -wants to raise $75,000 for his
personal use. I have agreed to get him
that money from the firm."
"Proceed," said Heinzman shrewdly.
"As security in case he cannot pay
the notes the firm will have tvive he
has signed an agreement to torn over
to me his undivided one-half interest
in our enterprise."
: "Veil? 7ou vant to borrow dot mon
ey of me?" asked Heinzman. "I could
not raise it."
- "I know that perfectly well." replied
Newmark coolly. "You are going to
have difficulty meeting your July notes
as It is."
neinzman hardly seemed to breathe,
but red blazed In his eye.
"I intend." went on Newmark, "to
furnish this money myself. It must,
however, seem to be loaned by anoth
er. I want you to lend this money on
"What for?" asked Heinzman.
"For a one-tenth of Orde's share la
case he does not meet those notes."
"But he rill meet the notes." object
ed Heinzman. "Yon are a prosperous

mark grimly. "I will merely pouii
out to you that hh entire income is
from the firm and that from this in
come he must save twenty odd thou
sand a year."
"If the firm has hard luck" said
"Exactly." finished Newmark.
"Vy you come to me?" demanded
Heinzman at length.
"Well. I'm offering you a chance to
get even with Orde. I don't imagine
you love him."
"Vat's de matter mit my gettin' efen
with you. too?" cried Heinzman.
"Ain't you beat me out at Lansing?"
Newmark smiled coldly under his

"Perhaps. And suppose this liddle
scheme don't work out."
"And." pursued Newmark calmly,
"I'll carry you over in your present
obligations." He suddenly bit the arm
of his chair with his clinched fist.
"Heinzman, If you don't make those
July payments what's to become of
you? Where's your timber and your
mills and your new house and that
pretty daughter of yours?"
Heinzman winced visibly.
"I vill get an extension of time." said
"Will you?" countermarked New
mark. "Veil, maybe." laughed Heinzman
uneasily. "It locks to me like a win
ner." "All right, then." said Newmark
briskly. "I'll make out n mortsace at
10 per cent for you, and you'll lend the
money on it. At the proper time, if
things happen that way. you will fore
close. That's all you have to do with
it. Then when the tlmberland comes
to you under foreclosure you will re
convey an undivided nine-ten iii3 inter
est fbr proper consideration, of course,
and without recording the deed."
Heinzman laughed with assumed
"Suppose I fool you." said he. "I
guess I joost keep it for minepolf."
Newmark looked at him coldly.
"I wouldn't," he advised. "You may
remember the member from T.apcer
county in that charter fight and the
$000 for his vote. Try It on and see
how much evidence I can bring up.
It's called bribery in this state and
means penitentiary usually." '
"You don't take a Joke," complained
"Ifs understood, then?" he asked.
"How so 1 know you play fair?"
asked the German.
"You don't. It's a case where we
have to depend more or less on each
other. But 1 don't see what you stand
to lose, and any wayyou'll get cnrrled
over those July payments." Newmark
Heinzman was plainly uneasy.
"If you reduce the firm's profits he
las going to suspect," he admonished.
"Who said anything about reducing
the firm's profits?" said Newmark im
patiently. "If It does work out that
way we'll win a big thing. If It does
not we'll lose nothing,"
He nodded to Ilelnimnn and left the
office. As he entered the office of his
own firm his eye (ell on Orde's bulky
form, He paused Involuntarily, and a
slight shiver shook bis frame the
recouping tne looses or tne year De-
fore. Newmark found himself strug
gling against a force greater than he
had imagined it to be.
The end of the fourth year found
Newmark puzzled. Orde had paid reg
ularly the Interest on his notes. How
much he had been able to save toward
the redemption of the notes themselves
his partner was unable to decide.
What Orde regarded as petty annoy
ances had made the problem of pay
ing for the California timber a matter
of great dillieu'ty. A pressure whose
points of support he could not place
was closing on him. Against this
pressure he exerted himself. The mar
gin of safety was not as broad as he
had reckoned. But In any case, if
worse came to worst, he could always
mortgage the California timber for
enough to make up the difference, and
more. Against this expedient, how
ever, he opposed a sentimental ob
stinacy. It was Bobby's, and he ob
jected to Incumbering it.
Affairs stood thus in the autumn be

In a disease so painful as Rheumatism, medicines containing opiates
and nerve-quieting drugs are often used. Such treatment is dangerous not
only because it frequently causes the sufferer to become addicted to the
drug habit, but medicines of thi3 nature are always injurious to the system.
Rheumatism is a disease of the blood, and Its cure depends entirely upon a
thorough purification of the circulation. As long as the blood remains
saturated with uric acid, an inflammatory condition of tho nerves, muscles
and tendons of the body will exist, and the pains, aches, soreness, and hot,
feverish flesh of Rheumatism will continue. The one safe and sure cure for
Rheumatism is S. S. S. It is nature's remedy for this disease, made entirely
of the healing, cleansing juices and extracts of roots, herbs and barks from
the natural forests. S. S. S. does not contain anything that is in the slightest
way injurious to the system. It is absolutely and purely vegetable, and
free from opiates or sedatives of any kind. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism by
removing the uric acid from the circulation, it makes the blood pure, rich
and heaalthy so that instead of depositing sharp, uratic impurities into the
muscles, nerves, joints and bones, it nourishes every portion of the body
with natural, healthful properties. Book on Rheumatism and any medical
