" Brforo I had ceased chuckling over the phcrifF's indignant declaration ct the canons of ctiqx;f tte I heard Mr. Cul len 's voice demanding to knowwhat the trouble was. It was quickly explain ed to hiin that I had escaped. He at once gave them permission to search hia car and went in with the sheriff and the cowboys. Apparently Madge went in, too, for in a moment I heard Camp say in a low voice: "Two of yon fellows get down below the car and crawl in under the truck where you can't be seen. Evidently that cuss isn't here, but he's likely to come by and by. If bo, nab him if you can, and if you can't fire two shots. Mosely, are you heeled?" "Do I chaw terbaccy?" asked Mosely ironically, clearly insulted at the sug gestion that ho would travel without a gun. I wrl needed. " said i rrnes rnst even the distance and the planks did not pre vent me from recognizing as that of Lord Ralles. "Yes, ' said she. " You are sure you can be rp.ired?" "I couldn't be of the slightest use, " said Ralles, getting on to the platform and joining Madge. "It's as black as lak everywhere, and I don't think there's anything to be done till day light." "Then I'm glad you came back, for I really want to say something to ask the greatest favor of you. " "You only have to tell me what it is, " said his lordship. ' ' "Even that is very hard, " said Madge. "If if Oh, I'm afraid I haven't the courage after all." "I'll he glad to do anything I can. " "It's welloh, dear, I can't. Let's walk a little, while I think how to put it." They began to walk, which took ' a weight oft my mind, as I had been ' 'Then keep a sharp lookout and listen ' forced to hear every word said thus far to everything you bear, especially the whereabouts of some letters. If you can spot their lay, crawl out and get word to me at once. Now, under you go be- j fore they come out. " j I heard two men drop into the gravel j close alongside of where I lay and then crawl under the truck of 218. They weren't a moment too soon, for the next j instant I heard two or three people ! jump on to the platform and Albert i Cullen's voice drawl, "Aw, by Jove, ' what's the row?" Camp not enlighten ing them, Lord Bailee suggested that they get on the car to find out, and the three did so. A moment later the sheriff j came to the door and told Camp that I was not to be found. ' "I told you this was the last place to look for the cuss, Mr. Camp," he said. "We've just discomforted the lady for nothin." j "Then we must search elsewhere," aid Camp. "Come on, boys. " The sheriff turned and made another elaborate apology for having had to trouble the lady. I heard Madge tell him that he hadn't troubled her at all, and then, as the cowboys and Camp walked on, she add ed, "And, Mr. Gunton, I want to thank you for reproving Mr. Camp's swear ing." "Thank you, miss," said the sheriff. "We fellers are a little rough at times, but we know what's due to a lady." "Papa," said Madge as Boon as he was out of hearing, "the sheriff is the most beautiful swearer I ever heard. " For awhile there was silence round the station. I suppose the party in 218 were comparing notes, while the two cowboys and I had the best reasons for being quiet. Presently, however, the men came out of the car and jumped on the platform. Madge evidently follow ed them to the door, for the called, "Please let me know the moment any thing happens or yon learn something. " "Better go to bed. Madgy," Albert called. "You'll only worry, and it's after 3." "I couldn't sleep if I tried," she an swered. Their footsteps died away in a mo ment, and I heard her close the door of 218. In a few moments she opened it again, and, stepping down to the sta tion platform, began to pace up and down it. If I had only dared, I could have put my finger through the crack of the planks and touched her foot as sue wauteu over my neaa, tut 1 was afraid it might startle her into a shriek, and there was no explaining to her what it meant without telling the cow boys how close they were to their quarry. Madge hadn't walked from one end of the platform to the other more than three vt four times when I heard some one coming.. - She evidently heard it al so, for she said: "I tgau to be afraid you hadn't un derstood me."

The platform was built around the station and in a moment they were out of hearing. Before many seconds were over, how ever, they had walked round the build ing, and I heard Lord Ralles say: "You really don't mean that he's in sulted you?" "That is just what I do mean, " cried Madge indignantly. "It's been ahno?t past endurance. I haven't dared to tell any one, but he bad the cruelty, the ' meanness, on, Hance's trail to threaten that" At that point the walkers turned the corner again, and I could not hear the rest of the sentence. But I had heard more than enough to make me grow hot with mortification, even while I could hardly believe I had understood aright. Madge had been so kind to me lately that I couldn't think she had been feel ing as bitterly as she spoke. That ruch an apparently frank girl was a consum mate actress wasrf't to be thought, and yet I remembered how well she had played her part on Hance's trail. But even that wouldn't convince me. Proof of her duplicity came quickly enough, : for while I was still thinking the walk era were round again, and Lord Ralles was saying: "Why haven't you complained to your father or brothers?" "Because I knew they would resent his conduct to me, and" "Of course they would," cried her companion, interrupting. "But why should you object to that?" Because of the letters," said Madge. "Don't 'you see that if we made him angry he would betray us to Mr. Camp and" Then they passed out of hearing, leav ing me almost desperate both at being an eavesdropper to such a conversation and that Madge could think so meanly of me. To say it, too, to Lord Hallos made it cut all the deeper, as any fel low who has been in love will under stand. Round they came again in a moment, and I braced myself for the lash of the whip that I felt was coming. I didn't escape it, for Madge was saying: "Can you conceive of a man pretend ing to care for a girl and yet treating her so? I can't tell you the grief, tho mortification, I have felt." She spoke with a half sob in her throa as if she was struggling not to cry, which made me wish I had never been born. "It's been all I could do to control myself in his presence I have come so utterly to hate and despise him," she added. "I don't wonder," said Lord Ralles. "My only surprise is" With that they passed out of hearing again, leaving me fairly desperate with shame, grief, and, I'm afraid, with an ger. I felt at once guilty and yet wrong ed. I knew I had been un gentlemanly on the trail, but I had done my best to retrieve my conduct and was running big risks, both present and eventual, for Madge's sake. Yet hero she was ac knowledging that thus far she had used me as a puppet,, while all the time dis liking me. It was a terrible blow, made all the harder by the fart that she to proving herself such a different girl from the one I loved so different, in fact, that, despite what I had heard, I couldn't quite believe it of her and found myself seeking to extenuate and even justify her conduct. While I was doing this they came within hearing, and Lord Ralles was speaking. "with you, " he said. "But I still do not see what I can do, however much I may wish to serve you." he or tell him what I really feel to ward him or anything, in fact, to shame him? I really can't go on acting s loncer. " That reached the limit- of my end or- ' a nee, and I crawled from my burrow, ! intending to get out from under that platform whether I was caught or not. ! I know it was a foolish move after hav- j ing heard what I had a little more cr ' less was quite immaterial. But I entire- j ly forgot my danger in the sting of what Madge had said, and my one thought was to stand face to face with her long enough to I'm sure I don't know what : I did intend to say. Just as I had got to the plank, how ever, I heard Lord Ralles ask: "Who's that?" "It's me." said a voice, "the station agent." Then I heard a door close. Some one walked out to the center of I the platform and remarked: "That 'ere local freight is late." At least the letters were recovered. "1 rocKofi, tneyni do Vtraiceratiie more hunting before they find him up there," chuckled the man, with a self important manner. "He's hidden away under this platform. " "Not right here?" I heard Madge cry, but I had too much to do to take in what followed. I was lying close to the loose plank, and even before the station master had completed his sentence I was squirming through the crack. As I freed my legs I heard two shots which I knew was the signal given by the cow boys, followed by a shriek of fright from Madge, for which she was hardly to be blamed. I was on my feet in an instant and ran dovrn the tracks at my best speed. It wasn't with much hope of es cape, for onre out from under the plank ing I found, what I had not before real ized, that day wa? dawning, and al ready outlines at a distance could be seen. However, I was bound to do my best, and I did it. Bc-fcre I had run 100 feet I could hear pursuers, and a moment later a revolv er cracked, plowing up the dust in front cf me. Another bullet followed, and, seeing that affairs were getting desper ate, I dodged round the end of some cars, only to plump into the arms of a man running at full speed. The col- j lision was so unexpected that we both fell, and before I could get on my feet some one plumped down on top of me and I felt something cold on the back of my neck. "Lie still, yer sneakin coyote of a road agent," said the man, "or I'll blow yer neck into hash." I preferred to tako his advice and lay quiet while t he cowboys gathered. From all directions I heard them coining, call ing to each other that "the skunk that Bhot the woman ia corralled," and oth er forms of the same information. In a moment I was. jerked to my feet, only to be swept off ihem with equal celeri ty and was half carried, half dragged, along the tracks. It wasn't as rough handling a I have takn on the foot ball field, but I didn't enjoy it. In a space of time that seemed only seconds I was clore to a. telegraph pole; lnt, brief as the moment had been, a fellow with a lariat tied round his waist was half way up the post. I knew tho mob had been told that I had killed a woman in the hold up, for tLe cowboy, bad as he is, has his own standards, be yond which he won't go. But I might a3 well have tried to tell my innocence to the moon a, to get them to listen to denials, even if I could have made my voice heard. The lariat was dropprd over the cross- pieee, and as a man adjusted mn noose win and. WTIson oasnea cut or ?fle door, and I wasn't two feet behind them. There was a squadron of cavalry swing ing a circle round the station, and we had- barely reached tho platform when the bugle sounded "Halt," quickly fol lowed by "Forward left." As the ranks wheeled and closed up as a solid line about us I could have cheered with de light. There was a moment's dramatia hush,-in which we could all hear the breathing of the winded horses, and then came the clatter of sword and spurs as an officer sprang from his sad die. "I want Richard Gordon, " the offi cer called. I said, "At your service and badly in need of yours, Captain Singer." "Hope the delay hasn't spoiled things." said the captain. "We had a cursed fcol of a guide, who took the wrong trail and ran us into Limestone can von. where we had to camp for the night." I explained the situation as quickly as I could, and the captain s eye gleam ed. "I'd have given a bad quarter to have rot here ten minutes sooner and ridden my men over those scoundrels," he muttered. "I saw them scatter as we rode up, and if I'd known what they'd been doing we'd have given them a volley. " Then he walked over to Mr. Camp and said, "Give me those letters." "I hold those letters by virtue of an order" Camp began. "Give me those letters, " the captain interrupted. "Do ycu intend a high handed inter ference with the civil authorities?' Judge Y7ilsou demanded. "Gome, come," said the captain. "You have taken forcible possession of the United States property. Any talk about civil ' authorities is rubbish, and you know it. " "I will never" cried Mr. Camp. "Corporal Jackson, dismount a guard of six men!" rang the captain's voice, interrupting him. Evidently something in the voice or order convinced Mr. Camp, fcr the let ters were hastier produced and givn to Singer, who at once handed them. to me. I turned with them to the Cullens, and, laughiu?, said, "All's well that ends well." But they didn't seeri to care a bit about the recovery of the letters and only wanted to have a handshake all round over my escape. Even Lord Ralles suid, "Glad we could be of a little serv ice" and didn't refuse my thanks though the deuce knows they were bad ly enough t'xnressed, in my conscious- WILLIAMSBURG.

I - thought it was i that I had done an ungontleniahly : Genn, Ira Gage, C. W. Ileetel, C.

"Let me say aword before you pull," j he called, and then to me he said, ".Now j will you giv3 up tho property:" I I was pretty pale and shaky, but I j come of sMiffish stock, and I wouldn't j have barked down then, it seemed to me, if they had been going to boil me alive. I suppo.e it sounds foolish, and if I had had plenty of time I think my common tseuso would have made me crawl. Not having time, I was on the point of saying "No, when the door of 218, which lay about 200 feet away, flew open, and out came Mr. Cullen, Fred, Albert, Lcrd Ralles and Captain Ackland, all with rifles. Of course it was perfect desperation for tile five to tackle tho cowboys, but they were game to do it, all the same. How it would have ended I don't know, but "as they ppraug off the car platform Mis Cullen came out on it and stood there, one hand holding on to the doorway, as if she needed sup- I Ml trick over thofe trousers of his and that he had been above remembering it when I was in real danger. I'm ashamed enough to confess that when Miss Cul len held out her hand I made believe not to s?e it. I'm a bad hand at pretend ing, and I saw Madge color up at my act. The captain finally called me off to consult about our proceedings. I felt no very strong love for Gamy), Baldwin or Wilson, but I didn't see that a military arrest would accomplish anything, and after a little discussion it was decided to let them alone, as we could well af ford to do, having won. This matter decided, I said to the captain: "I'll be obliged if you'll put a guard round my car. And then, if you and your officers will come inside, I bavo a something in a bottle recom mended fcr removing alk'ali dust from the tonsils." "Very happy to test your prescrip tion," said Singer genially. I started to go with him, but I could not resist turning to Mr. Camp and his friends and saying: "Gentlemen, the G. S. is a big affair, but it isn't quite big enough to fight the U. S." "Let me say a word before yon ptdL" port, and the other covering her heart. It was too far for me to see her face, but the whole attitude expressed such suffering that it was terrible to see. What was more, her position put her in range of every shot the cowboys might fire at the five as they charged. If I could have stopped them, I would have done so; but, since that was impossible, I cried: "Mr. Camp, I'll surrender the let ters." "Hold on, boys," shouted Baldwin. "Wait till we get the property he stoh?, " And, coming through the crowd, he threw the noose off mv neck. "Don't shoot. Mr. Cullen." I veiled. as my friends halted and raised their j slumbering in some pigeonhole in Wash nnef, and fortunately the cowboys had opened up enough to let them hear me and see that I was free of the rope. Escorted by Camp, Baldwin and the cowboys, I walked toward them. On the way Baldwin said in a low voice: "Deliver the letters, and we'll tell the boys there has been a mistake. Other wise" When he came up to the five, I called to them that I had agreed to surrender the letters. While I was saying it Miss Cullen joined them, and it was curious CHAPTER XVL A OLOOMT OOOPBf. At that point my importance ceased. Apparently seeing that the game was up, Mr. Camp later in the morning ask ed Mr. Cullen to give him an interview, and when he was allowed to pass the sentry he came to the steps and suggest ed: "Perhaps we can arrange a compro mise between the Missouri Western and the Great Southern?" "We can try," Mr. Cullen assented. "Come into my car." He made way for Mr. Camp and was about to follow him when Madge took hold of her fa ther's arm, and, making him stoop, whispered something to him. "What kjnd of a place?" asked Mr. Cullen, laughing. "A good one, " his daughter replied. Of the interview which took place in side 218 I can speak only at second hand, and the world knows about as wen as i now tne contest was compro mised by the K. and A. being turned over to the Missouri Western, the terri tory in southern California being di vided between the California Central and the Great Southern, and a traffic arrangement agreed upon that satisfied the G. S. The next day a Missouri West ern board for the K. and A. was elected without opposition, and they in turn elected Mr. Cullen president of the K. and A. , so when my report of the hold ing up went in he had the pleasure of reading it. I closed it with a request for instructions, but I never received any, and that ended the matter. I tura- I ed over the letters to the special agent at Flagstaff, and I suppose hii report ia Haisley.

I felt pretty small, but vrith Camp and Baldwin, now re-enforced by Judge Wilson, I went to the station, ordered the agent to open the safe, took out the three letters and bunded them to Mr. Camp, realizing how poor Madge must have felt on Hance's trail.

"And as tho lights keep moving in the town ington, for I should hare known of any attempt to bring the culprits to punish ment. Mr. Cullen had taken a big risk, but came out of it with a great lot of money, for the Missouri Western bought all his holdings in the K. and A. and C. C. But the scare must have taught him a lesson, for ever since then he's been conservative and talks about the foolishness of investors who try to ret more than 5 per cent or who think of anything but good railroad bonds. As for myself, & month after these occurrences I was appointed superintend ent of the Missouri Western, which by this deal had became one of the largest railroad systems in the world. It was a big step up for so young a man and was of course pure favoritism, due to Mr. Cullen's influence. I didn't stay in the position long, for within two years I was offered the presidency of the Chi cago and 8t. Paul, and I think that wsa won oa merit.
