Cardigan interests are behind the scheme
gets to work to balk them.
The dictograph which Shirley had
asked Bryce to obtain for her in San
Francisco arrived on the regular pas
senger steamer on Thursday morning
and Bryce called her up to ask when
she desired it sent over.
“Good morning. Sir. Cardigan,” she
greeted him cheerily. “How do you
?eel this morning? Any the worse for
Jjaving permitted yourself to be a hu
y man being last night?"
“Why, 1 fee! pretty fine, Shirley. I
think it did me a lot of good to crawl
out of my shell last night.”
“You feel encouraged to go on liv
ing, eh?"
“And fighting?”
“By all.means,”
“Then something has occurred of
late to give yon new courage?”
“Oh, many things. By the way, Shir
ley, you may inform your uncle at
breakfast Friday morning about my
connection with the X. C. O. In fact.
I think it would be far better for you
if you made it a point to do so."
“Because both Ogilvy and myself
have a very strong suspicion that your
uncle has a detective or two on our
trails. I judge your uncle will learn
today that you dined with Ogilvy,
Moira and me last night.”
“Oh, dear! That’s terrible.” He
could sense her distress.
“Ashamed of having been seen in my
company, eh?”
“Please don’t. Are you quite serious
in this matter?"
“T'ncle Seth will think it so—so
“Tic’ll probably tell you about it.
Better heat him to the issue by ’fessing
up, Shirley. Doubtless his suspicions
are already aroused, and if you inform
him that you know 1 am the real build
er of the X. 0. O., he’ll think you’re a
smart woman and that you’ve been
doing a little private gum-shoe work
of your own on behalf of the Laguna
Grande Lumber company.”
“Which is exactly what T have been
doing.” she reminded him.
“I know. But then, I’m not afraid
of you, Shirley—that is, any more.
And after Friday morning I’ll not be
afraid of your uncle.”
“I feel as if I were a conspirator.”
“I believe you are one. Your dicto
graph has arrived. Shall I send George
Sea Otter over with it? And have you
somebody to install it?"
“Oh. bother! Does it have to be In
stalled ?”

“Could George Sea Otter install it?”
“I think he could. There is a print
ed card of instructions, and I dare say
^George would find the job no more
baffling than the ignition system on
the Napier.”
“Will he tell anybody?”
"Not if you ask him not to.”
“Very well. then. Please send him
over. Thank you so much. Bryce
Cardigan. You’re an awful good old
sort, after all. Really, it hurts me to
have to oppose you. tt would be so
much nicer if we didn’t have allvthose
redwood trees to protect, wouldn’t it?”
• “Let us not argue the question. Shir
ley. I think I have my redwood trees
protected. Good-hy.”
He had scarcely finished telephon
ing his home to instruct George Sea
Otter to report with the express pack
age to Shirley when Buck Ogilvy
strolled Into the office and tossed a
document on his desk. “There's your
little old temporary franchise, old
thing,” he announced; and with many
a hearty laugh he related to Bryce the
ingenious means by which he had ob
tained It. “And now if you will phone
up to your logging camp and instruct
the woods-hnss to lay off about fifty
men to rest for the day. pending a
hard night's work, and arrange to
send them down on the last log train
today, I’ll drop around after dinner
and we’ll fly to that jump-crossing.’’
1II telephone Colonel Pennington’s
manager and ask him to kick a switch
engine in on the Laurel creek spur and
snake those flat cars with my rails
aboard out to the junction with the
main line,” Bryce replied. And he
called up the Laguna Grande Lumber
company—only to be informed by no
less a person than Colonel Pennington
himself that it would be impossible
to send the switch-engine in until the
following afternoon. The Colonel was
sorry, but the switch-engine was in the
shop having the brick in her firebox
renewed, while the mogul that hauled
the log trains would not have time to
attend to the matter, since the flats
would have to be spotted on the side
track at Cardigan’s log landing in the
woods, and this could not be done un
til the last loaded log train for the day
had been hauled out to make room.
“Why not switch back with the
mogul after the log train has been
hauled out on the main line?” Bryce
demanded pointedly.
Pennington, however, was noj

patronizingly, “quite Impossible, I. as

“I know It. And what happened?
Why, that old trestle squeaked and
shook and gave every evidence of be
ing about to buckle in the center. My
engineer threatened to quit if I sent
him in again.-”
“Very well. I suppose I’ll have to
wait until the switch-engine comes
out of the shop.” Bryce replied re
signedly, and hung tip. He turned a
troubled face to Ogilvy. “Check

a frazzle. The colonel Is lying, Buck,
and I’ve caught him at it. As a mat

—and I know It. Now I’m going to
send a man over to snoop around Pen
nington’s roundhouse and verify his
report about the switch-engine being

He did sc. Half an hour later the
messenger returned with the Informa
tion that not only was the switch-en
gine not in the shop hut her fire
box had been overhauled the week be
fore and was reported to be in ex
cellent condition.
“That settles it," Buck Ogilvy
mourned. “The Colonel is as suspicious
as a rhino. He doesn't know anything,
hut he smells danger just the same.”
“Exactly, Buck. So lie is delaying
the game until he can learn something
definite.” He drummed idly on his
desk for several minutes. Then:
“Buck, can'you run a locomotive?”
“With one hand, old man.”
“Fine business! Well, I guess we’ll
put in that crossing tomorrow night.
The switch-engine will be in the round
house at Pennington’s mill tomorrow
night, so we can’t steal that; but we
can steal the mogul. I’ll just send
J word up to in.v woods boss not to
1 have his train loaded when the mogul
comes up late tomorrow afternoon to
haul it down to our log landing. Of
course, the engine crew won’t bother
to run down to Sequoia for the night
j —that is. tiiey won’t run the mogul
j down. They’ll just leave her at our
j log landing all night and put up for
I the night at our camp."
But how do you know they will put
up at your camp all night, Bryce?”
“My men will make them comfort
able, and it means they can lie abed
until seven o’clock instead of having
to roll out at five o'clock, which would
he the case if they spept the night at
this end of the line. There fs a slight
grade at our log landing. 1 know
that, because the air leaked out of
the brakes on a log train I was on a
short time ago. and the train ran
away with me. Now, the engine crew
will set the airbrakes on the mogul
and leave her with steam up to throb
all night; they'll not blow her down,
for that would mean work firing her
In the morning. Our task. Buck, will
be to throw off the airbrakes and let
her glide silently out of our log land
ing. About a mile down the mad
we’ll stop, get up steam, run down to
the Junction with the main line, back
in on the Laurel Creek spur, couple
onto those flat cars and breeze mer
rily down to Sequoia with them.
They’ll he loaded waiting for us; our
men will he congregated in our dry
yard just off Water street near R,
waiting for ns to arrive with the rails
—and bingo—we go to It. After we
drop the flats, we'll run the engine
hack to the woods, leave it where we
found It, return a-fl.ving. You can get
back in ample time to superintend the
cutting of the crossing!”
“Spoken like a man!” quoth Buck
Ogilvy. “You’re the one man in this
world for whom I’d steal a locomo
tive. ’At-a-hoy!”
Had either of the conspirators
known of Pennington’s plans to enter
tain Mayor Poundstone at dinner on
Thursday night, it is probable they
would not have chpered until those
flat cars were out of the woods.
Mayor Poundstone and his wife ar
rived at the Pennington home in Red
wood boulevard at six forty-five Thors
day evening. It was with if profound
feeling of relief that his honor lift
ed the lady from their modest little
“flivver,” for once inside the Penning
ton house, lie felt, he would lie frpe
from a peculiarly devilish brand of
persecution inaugurated by his wife
about three months previously. Mrs.
Poundstone wanted a new automobile.
And she had entered upon a cam
paign of nagging and complaint, hop
ing to wear Poundstone’s resistance
down to the point where he would he
willing to barter his hope of salva
tion in return for a guarantee of peace
on earth.
“1 feel like a perfect fool, calling
upon these people in this filthy rattle
trap," Mrs. Poundstone protested.
Mayor Poundstone paused. “In
pity’s name, woman.” he growled,
“talk about something else. Give me
one night of peace. Let me enjoy my
dinner and this visit.”
“I can’t help It." Mrs. P-retorted
with asperity. She pointed to Shirley
Sumner’s car parked under the porte
cochere. “If I had a sedan like that,
I could die happy. And It only cost
unriy-iwn nunim'ii anil ntt.v Hollars.—
“I paid six hundred and fifty for the
rattletrap, and I couldn't afford that."
he almost whimpered. “You were
happy with It until I was elected
“You forge? our social position, my
dear,” she purred sweetly.
He could have struck her. “Hang
your social position," he gritted sav
agely. “Shut up. will you? Social
position In a sawmill town! Dam
mit. yon’ll drive me crazy yet." Pound
stone gurgled, and subsided.
The Pennington butler, a very su
perior person, opened the door. The
Poundstones entered. At the entrance
to the living room the butler an
"Mayor Poundstone and Mrs. Pound
nounced sonorously: "Mayor Pound
stone and Mrs. Poundstone.”
“Glad to see you aboard the ship,”
Colonel Pennington boomed with hia
best air of hearty expansiveness.
“Well, well,” he continued, leading
Mrs. Poundstone to a divan in front of
the fire, “this is certainly delightful.
My niece will be down in two shakes
of a lamb’s tail. Have a cigarette, Mr.
In the midst of the commonplace
chatter incident to such occasions. Shir
ley entered the room; and the Colonel
leaving her to entertain the guests,
went to a small sideboard in one cor
ner and brought forth the “materials,”
as he jocularly termed them. James
appeared like magic with a tray,
glasses and tiny serviettes, and the
Colonel’s elixir was passed to the com
“Dee-licious.” murmured Mrs. Pound
stone. “Perfectly dee-licious. And not
“Have another,” her hospitable host j
suggested, and he poured it, quite ob
livious of the frightened wink which
the mayor telegraphed his wife. Pound
stone prayed to his rather nebulous
gods that Mrs. P. would not discuss
J automobiles during the dinner.
Alas! The Colonel’s cocktails were
not unduly fortified, but^ for all that,
the two which Mrs. Poundstone had
assimilated contained just sufficient
“kick” to loosen the lady’s tongue
without thickening it. Consequently,
about the time the "piece de resist
ance” made its appearance, she threw
caution to the winds and adverted to
the subject closest to her heart.
“T was telling Henry as we came up
the walk how greatIv T envied you that
beautiful sedan. Miss Sumner." she
gushed. "How an open car does blow
one around, my dear!”
“Yes, indeed.” said Shirley inno
“Heard the McKinnon people had a
man killed up in their woods yester
day, Colonel,” Poundstone remarked,
hoping against hope to divert the con
“Yes. The fellow’s own fault.” Pen
nington replied. “He was one of those
employees who held to the opinion
that every man is ihe captain of his
own soul and the sole proprietor of his
own body—hence that it behooved him
to look after both, in view of the high
cost of safety appliances. He was
warned that the togging cable was
weak at that old splice and liable to
pull out of the hecket—and sure enough
it did. The free end of the cable
snapped back like a whip, and—"
“I hold to the opinion." Mrs. Pound
stone interrupted, “that If one wishes
for a thing hard enough and just keeps
on wishing, one is bound to get It.”
“My dear," said Mr. Poundstone
impressively, “if you would only con
fine yourself to wishing, I assnr» you
your chances for success would be in
finitely brighter.”
There was no mistaking this rebuke;
even two cocktails were powerless to
render Mrs. Poundstone oblivious to It.
With the nicest tact in the world Shir
ley adroitly changed the subject to
some tailored shirtwaists sbe had ob
served In the window of u local dry
goods emporium that day, and Mrs.
Poundstone subsided.
About nine o’clock, Shirley, In re
sponse to a meaning glance from her
relative, tactfully convoyed Mrs.
Poundstone upstairs, leaving her uncle
alone with his prey. Instantly Pen
nington got down to business.
“Well," he queried, apropos of noth
ing, “what do you hear with reference
to the Northern Californla-Oregon rail
"On. the usual amount or wina, uoio
nel. Nobody knows what to make of
that optfit.”
Pennington studied the end of his
cigar a moment.
“Have they made any move to get a
franchise?” he asked bluntly. “If they
have. I suppose you would be the first
man to hear about It. I don’t mean to
be Impertinent," he added with a
gracious smile, “but the fact Is I no- j
ticed that windbag Ogllvy entering
your office In the city hall the other
afternoon, and I couldn’t help wonder
ing whether his visit was social or of
“Social—so far as I could observe,"
Poundstone replied truthfully, wonder
Ing Just how much Pennington knew.
“Preliminary to the official visit, 1
dare say.”
The Colonel puffed thoughtfully for
a while—for which the mayor was
grateful, since it provided time In
which to organize himself. Suddenly,
however. Pennington turned towaTO
his guest and fixed the latter with a
serious glance.
“I hadn’t anticipated discussing this
matter with you, Poundstone, and you
must forgive me for it; but the fact Is
—I might as well be frank with you—
I am very greatly Interested in the
operation of this proposed railroad. If
it Is built. It will have a very distinct
effect on my finances.”
"In Just what way?”
“I am amazed. Colonel."
“You wouldn’t be If you had given the
subject very close consideration. Such

wood belt only, while a line built from
the south will tap two-thirds of It The
remaining third can be tapped by an
extension of my own logging road;

will want other business for my road.
aDd If the N. C. O. parallels It I will
be left with two streaks of rust on my

“Yon agree with me. then. Pound
stone, that the N. C. O. is not designed
to foster the best interests of the
crrinri!unixy. Of course you do. I take
It therefore, that when the N. C. O.
applies for its franchise to run through
Sequoia, neither you nor yotjr city
council will consider the proposition
at ail,"
“I cannot of course, speak for the
■City council—" Poundstone began, but
Pennington's cold, amused smile froze
further utteraficd.
“Bq frank with me, Poundstone. 1
am not a child, Wliat I would like to
know is this: will you ekert every ef
fort to block that franchise in the firm
conviction that by so doing you will
accomplish a laudable public service?"
Poundstone squirmed. “When I
have had time to look into the matter
more thoroughly—”
^Tit-rut, my dear man! Let us not
straddle tlie fence. Business is a
game, and so is politics. Neithei
knows any sentiment.. Suppose you
should favor this N. C. O. crowd in a
mistaken idea that you were doing the
right thing, and that subsequently
numberless fellow-citizens developed
the idea that you had not done your
public duty. Would some of them not
be likely to Invoke a recall election
and retire you and your city council—
In disgrace?”
“I doubt if they could defeat me.
“1 have no such doubt,” Pennington
replied pointedly.
Poundstone looked up at him from
nnder lowered lids. “Is that a
threat?" he demanded tremulously.
“My dear fellow! Threaten my
guest!” Pennington laughed patroniz
ingly. “1 am giving you advice,
Poundstone—and rather good advice,
it strikes me. However, while we’re
on the subject. I have no hesitancy in
telling you Hint in the event of a dis
astrous decision on your part, I
should not feel justified in supporting
He might, with equal frankness,
have said: “I would smash you.” To
his guest itis meaning was not obscure.
Poundstone studied the pattern of the
rug, and Pennington, watching him
sharply, saw that the man was dis
tressed. He resolved on a hold stroke.
“Let's not heat about the bush.
Poundstone," he said with the air of
a father patiently striving to induce
his child to recant a lie. tell the truth,
and save himself from the parental
wrath. “You've been doing business
with Ogilvy: I know it for a fact, and
you might as well admit it.”
Poundstone looked np. red and em
barrassed. “If I had known—” lie be
“Certainly, certainly! I realize you
acted in perfect good faith. You're
like the majority of people in Sequoia.
You're all so crazy for rail connection
with the outside world that you jump
at the first plan that seems to promise
you one. Have you promised Ogilvy
a franchise?"
There was no dodging that ques
tion. A denial, under the present cir
cumstances. would he tantamount to
an admission; Poundstone could not
guess just how much the Colonel really
knew, and it would not do to lie to
him. since eventually the lie must he
discovered. He resolved to "come
“The city council has already grant
ed the N. C. O. a temporary fran
chise." he confessed.
Pennington sprang furiously to his
feet. “Dammit," he snarled, “why did
you do that without consulting me?”
“Didn't know you were remotely In
terested.” Now that the Ice was bro
ken. Poundstone felt relieved and was
prepared to defend his act vigorously.
"And we did not commit ourselves Ir
revocably," he continued. “The tem
porary franchise will expire In twen
ty-eight days—and in that time the
N. C. O. cannot even get started.”
“Have you any understanding as to
an extension of that temporary fran
chise, in case the N. C. O. desires It?”
“Well, yes—not In writing, however.
I gave Ogilvy to understand that if he
was aot ready in thirty days, an ex
tension could readily be arranged.”
“Any witnesses?”
i itui nut such a rooi, sir, ruuuu
stone declared with asperity. “1 had
a notion—I might as well admit it—
that you would have serious objection
to having your tracks cut by a jump
crossing at B and Water streets.” And
for no reason In life except to justify
himself and inculcate in Pennington
an Impression that the latter rvas deal
ing with a crafty and far-seeing
mayor, Poundstone smiled boldly and
knowingly. He leaned back nonchal
antly and blew smoke at the ceiling.
"You oily rascal!” Pennington solilo
quized. “You’re a smarter man than I
thought. You’re trying to play both
ends against the middle.” He recalled
the report of his private detective and
the Incident of Ogilvy’s visit to
young Henry Poundstone’s office with
a small leather bag; he was more
than ever convinced that this bag had
contained the bribe, in gold coin,
which had been productive of that
temporary franchise and the verbal
understanding for its possible exten
“Ogilvy did business with you
through your son Henry,” he chal
lenged. Poundstone started violently.
“How much did Henry get out of It?”
