CHAPTER XXII. (Continued.)
- The clerk roused up aa Hope approach
ed his desk. He stared strangely, curl
ously at the disordered visitor.
"I have come here twenty miles on a
hurried order," summarized Hope.
He took a folded bit of paper from
"Do you know Warren? Warren, of
the Vulcan Co.?" he added, inquiringly.
"Why yes," admitted the clerk, stand
ing up and rubbing his eyes.
"Do you know 'his handwriting, also?"
. "I think I do."
"There's a specimen of it."
"Tea, 'tis," Blowly and wonderingly
nodded tlie clerk, as he perused a scrawl
ordering "the delivery to bearer" of a
certain, satchel in a certain closet In the
house. "Queer, to send for his satchel
that's beeu here so long! I'll get it for
"He speedy, then, and careful."
"It might hold some of his goods
"Oh ! dynamite? Yes, but he knows
enough to have it' protected," confident
ly retorted the clerk.
Gideon sank into a chair, pretty well
exhausted. He felt a trifle grewsome as,
bearing a dust-covered satchel, the clerk
reappeared. His hand shook as he took
it. Strange thrills ran through his be
ing. A thousand deaths lurked in the lit
tle innocent looking leather, receptacle,
he well knew.
He breathed more freely as he again
reached the outer air. With the thought
fulness of a true man he took the middle
of the road, alone anxious for the nonce
in getting the explosive, far and quickly
from the proximity of human beings.
At the edge of the silent town Gideon
Hope paused. What should he do with
the dynamite to insure its harmlessness,
now that he had it? that was the ques
tion. lie recalled the explicit directions that
Warren had given him : To sink it in
some unfrequented water con rue, and be
remembered he had crossed a bridge above
winding little stretm, about a mile from
Toward it Hope bent his course. He
had proceeded a distance when a dull
sound grew into momentarily augmenta
tive resonance and distinctness.
Klappetty klop -klappetty klop klap
petty klop !
In the soft moonlight he observed ap
proaching two horsemen. An' instant
suspicion assailed him. Suppose they were
allies of the mismated pair at the isolat
ed house, scouring the country for him?
"I'll take no chances," he decided quiet
ly "at least until the dynamite is dis
So he drew aside into some bushes
fringing the road. It was well that he
did so. As the men passed 'him be was
positive he had seen them in the garden
of the private asylum hired appendages
of that nefarious institution.
As they rounded a curve in the road
out of view, Gideon resumed his way.
About five minutes later, as he was
Hearing the bridge, almost noiselessly a
man mounted on a horse emerged from
the thickets and nearly ran him down.
He brought bis animal to a sharp halt
he stared bard at Hope. Piece by piece
he seemed inspecting his clothing aa if
identifying him from description.
Gideon stood his ground. Soon he
started to move on.
"I want you !" spoke the horseman,
and he now held a revolver in his hand.
He ran bis horse fairly upon Hope,
leaned over, and aimed a blow at him
with the weapon. Gideon dodged. Then
he grappled with the form leaning toward
him. He felt a stinging pain in one shoul
der the firearm had exploded.
But in wrath and strength be clung to
the fellow, dragged him from the stirrups,
and giving him a mighty fling, sent bis
head cracking across a mass of bowlders.
The satchel he had carried strapped
cross pne shoulder. As the man lay
senseless, Hope started again for the riv
r. He staggered. The horse, well train
ed, had not moved away. As he began
to experience a strange dizziness, Hope
pulled himself into the saddle, hurried by
shouts around the bend in the road.
The two horsemen in advance had prob
ably, heard the shout, and were hurrying
"Up on !" feebly ordered Gideon, but
In sheer weakness he almost fell across
the horse's neck.
Then there seemed a lapse of sheer in
sensibility. Again his brain slightly
cleared, and be was conscious of being
borne at a plodding gait along a wlldwood
The steed must have taken a course out
of range of the regular road .and the pur
suing horsemen. Day was breaking. Gid
eon knew that the bullet wound in his
shoulder was accountable for the great
weakness that made him even forgetful
of the fateful burden of dynamite that
he still carried. i
He lapsed into renewed unconsciousness
-again revived. ' f
It was broad daylight now. The horse
. was browsing in a sort of garden. Near
by waa a house. Hope straightened up
in the saddle, tried to rally his confused
He lifted his eyes toward the building.
All its windows were closely shuttered
hut one. That was on the second floor,
There his glance was riveted. Waa It
delirium, fancy? For the roseate dawn
Illumined' a figure, wonder eyed, gazing
lown at him.
This had tlAnnenoH Th hnraa that
had safely borne' Gideon Hope to this
unlooked-for destination belonged, as he
had Inferred, to the (tables of ths se
cluded haunt where his pursuit by Elita's
allies had begun.
Apparently the animal had made fre
quent journeys between the two places,
and instead of returning home, had come
hither, with Hope .a helpless burden
across the saddle.
. The truth, the fortune of this climax
burst over the man's soul with ardor. Sot
only had he escaped bis enemies, but be
had found Claire 1
Instantly weakness, his Injuries, his
confusion, were forgotten, obliterated. To
that glorious face marvelingly looking
down at him he raised his glance, full of
fervor and love.
"Claire Miss Tremaine !" he breathed,
and slipped from the saddle. As he did
so, unheeded the satchel of dynamite
dropped from bis shoulder to his feet.
But Hope noticed it not. for the moment
absorbed in contemplation of the begin
ning and the end of all the present, mo
tives of his life.
"It is you ! It is you I" slowly, dubi
ously murmured Claire, an eager light in
her beautiful eyes, her pale face working
with intense emotion.
"And you a prisoner !" cried Hope,
"Yes, for a long time. Since the night
I was taken away to marry the man you
bade me obey."
"Who 1b in this house now?"
"I, alone," explained Claire. "A wom
an has been in charge, but she went away
Inst evening, leaving me securely locked
in. She will soon return."
"Why did you not try to escape "
began Hope. .
"Because they have led me to believe
you desired that I remain here."
Gideon Hope flashed from the spot.
Soon he was at the front door. With
a great billet of wood be dashed it from
place. Up a stairway he made advance,
and before his irresistible assaults door
after door gave way.
Pale, excited, apprehensive, the fair
captive was brought out into the garden.
"Listen," spoke Hope, all thought and
action ; "You are trembling, weak, ex
cited. There is much to do, and no time
for immediate explanations. Let me lift
you to the saddle. Ride to the nearest
town, and await my coming."
"But you?" faltered Clnire, and there
was no mistaking the tender light that
shone from her anxious eyes upon the
man she had learned to obey so implicitly
and love so devotedly.
"I will remain here for a time. I have
something to do;" answered Hope seri
ously. There was the dynamite to dispose of.
And then, too, he had resolved to con
front Claire's jailer when she returned,
and force from her lips a confession that
would enable him to intelligently proceed
about a raid upon the inmates of that
other isolated house which harbored the
Ivanes and their infamous associates.
I will do as you say," assented Claire,
and moved toward the grazing horse.
"But wait," interrupted Hope again.
He bad brought her from the house with
out any head covering or wraps. Now
he explained and left her side momentar
ily. He was not gone two minutes, and re
turning with the articles he had gone for,
he cleared the staircase four steps at a
time, as a shriek from the outside warned
him of some peril or alarm on the part
When be came around to the side of the
house the horse had stampeded into an
adjoining field. Upon the green sward
where Hope had left ber was Claire, in a
No other person was in view. What
had happened? Quickly Hope lifted her
head in his arms, and murmured his anx
iety and solicitude into her white, pulse
Thus several minutes went by, until at
length her eyes opened. She shrieked.
"Where is he?" she cried, with a fright
"Whom?" inquired Hope quickly.
"You mean? "
"He was here!" exclaimed Hope, in
"Yes!" she panted, looking about her,
all in a tremble.
"While you were gone." She clung to
him hysterically. "Oh, Mr. Hope!" she
cried, "protect me from him if be comes
"Do not tear for that," assured Hope.
"You are certain it was Kane?'.'
Flutteringly Claire related a singular
story. Hope had no sooner gone into the
bouse than Kane bad appeared. Wild
faced, his garments disordered, a broken
chain dangling from one wrist, he had
burst upon her appalled view.
He had sprung to her side, seized her
arm, in hurried accents announced that
she must at once accompany him in flight.
It was his desire Gideon Hope's com
mand. She had struggled. He sought to drag
her from the spot. Something he caught
from her incoherent words, that she dis
believed and disregarded him, that Hope
waa even now in the house, that the
horse, the satchel, he had brought hither.
"I called for help," narrated Claire.
"Suddenly Kane's, eyes flared with a
strange, eager light. He sprang toward
the satchel, saying: This is Hope's?
Then it contafns the money ! If you will
not go with me, at least I have the for
tune.' Then I fainted away.'
"The dolt the victim! That satchel
Hope was interrupted. A flying horse
woman came np the road. It was Elita.
"You here!" she cried, facing Hope,
"and you free ?'V she shouted at Claire.
"Has he been here?" she demanded.
"Your husband?' said Hope.
"Yes what is that!"
What, indeed ! . A strange breath, as
of nature gasping, a flutter of t& Isavsa
f the trees, ajctieck in blrdsong and ra-
""t whirr si caused by a harsh, cut
ting crash at some near distance.
Upon the topmost branch of a lofty e!m
a robin bad built her nest.
As day broke, she faced the sun, and
began, first, ber faint, twittering note,
then a slow, low trill, and finally her
full burst of glorious song.
A man dashing through the brush, bat
less, pale, yet eager, bearing satchel in
his hand, looked np and echoed the exult
ant note, and laughed gayly, triumphant
ly. , It was Percy Kane. He had escaped,
had been forced to abandon the thought
of taking Claire away with him, but had
he not in the satchel the other half of
the severed bank notes? Yes! his folly
led him to believe. He was rich, and
the money was the main thing, after all.
As be hoped, planned, anticipated s
new future in some new field, thus equip
ped with a princely fortune, he grew half
wild with reckless delight.
He waved the satchel caressingly, he
plunged on. Soon he came to a break in
the landscape. Fair valleys, a radiant,
fertile expanse, spread out the world lay
all before him !
The final hour! he exulted "and I
am the victor!"
Yea, the hour had come but not of
victory, of doom. Instead the hour of
ripening dynamite! Retribution and total
He knew no shock or pain simply a
flashing dissolution. The dynamite had
exploded, and he was blotted out.
One last act of justice the woman,
Elita, performed ere with her unfortu
nate father, she disappeared from the
scene of her recent .endeavors, never to
be seen thpre again. She gave to Gideon
Hope some secri't papers of her dead hus
band, proving his connection with" the
murder of Everett Hope, and the base
swindles that had been perpetrated
against Albert Tremaine, thus insuring a
return of a portion of his lost fortune.
Warren, of the Vulcan Co., was re
leased from the asylum. Hope saw to it
that Kane's accomplices were punished.
Fate had been more powerful in bring
ing about the unmasking and destruction
of the guilty than his own fondly cher
ished plans, but the recompense was of
justice, and he was content.
To his country, to his political aspira
tions, he bade 5 final adieu.
He had love now to live for love that
had never faltered, though well nigh sac
rificed and, away fronv the scenes where
jts first inception had been harsh and
painful, and might prove haunting, he
and Claire sought mutual forgetfulness
of the past and unalloyed joy for the

This man has given the Country Life
Commission some very interesting first
hand information about rural condi
tions and recommendations based on a
long experience in farm work and farm
life. He has worked for all kinds of
farmers, good and bad, he says, and
he has always had his eyes open -to
detect the causes of their success or
failure. He has drawn his own con
clusions and sets them forth In down
right straightforward fashion. Edu
cation pays in farming, he says. The
farmer who plans out his work and
carries It through in a systematic,
business-like manner, just as the city
man does, will be able td shorten the
hours of laBor "So many farmers
measure everything on the farm from
the standpoint of muscle," he contin
ues, "and are extreme in some things
and slack in others. I decided sev
eral years ago that life is too short to
work for Peter Tumbledown farmers."
"Compel the farmer to be a business
man," he says. "Go into the homes of
some of the farmers and the so-called
farmers and ascertain how they live,
and learn of their methods of doing
the business in which they are engaged.
And you will be surprised what a va
riety you will find. Ascertain what
they read, and what stresses they put
on the literature that comes into their
homes (If any comes) bearing on the
business they are engaged In. See what
per cent study tbelr business.
"Give me the educated farmer as a
boss and the educated farmhand as a
hand. When I come In contact with
a band or farmer that studies his busi
ness I find him advancing, and it Is a
pleasure to work for such men.
"The majority of the farmers are
eight-hour men, that Is, eight hours In
the forenoon and eight in the after
noon. Eight or ten hours on the farm
cannot well be adapted In all cases, but
it need not be from fourteen to sixteen
hours. If the family arise every morn
ing at 5 o'clock and the wife and daugh
ters attend to the household duties,
and the farmhands and sons attend to
the chores and go to the field at 7
o'clock and work until 11 or 11:30 and
go to the field again at 1 and keep at
it until 6 o'clock, and go to the house
and eat the supper and then do the
evening chores, they have done a farm
day's work. Regular hours for work,
and regular hours for meals, and reg
ular hours for sleep, and regular hours
for rest and recreation, with plenty of
standard papers and books, including
the best agricultural papers and books,
and a full faith in God, and good grub
"The family should rise at 5 o'clock
on Sunday morning as well as on week
days, and do the necessary Sunday
morning chores, and then go to church

sist in changing the stock from one
field to another, or salting It or un

in on Saturday evening.

"Men of worth and 8tand!ng in the
shop and city tell me that If order and
system were used on the farm they
would go back to the farm. If the
farmer wants to keep bis sons and
daughters on the farm be must not
lengthen the hours for a day's work at
ttoth ends. Limit the hours of work on
the farm to twelve or thirteen with
pay for overtime, and freedom to the
hired man on Sunday."
