1 liorpc s hopes had sunU to zi'to.
After nil. looking at tho mnttei dis
passionately, why shoiihl he expect
Carpenter to trust him. u slimmer,
with m luri;o a sum? It had been
madness. Only tho hllnd confidence of
tlif HkIiUiik man led him farther into
Thorpe's description)! were contained '
In the battered little notebook he had
curried with li tin hi the woods. Kor
each piece of land tlrst there came the
township described by latitude and
east and west range. After this go
nerlc description followed niiolher tig
uro representing the section of that
particular district. So 40-17 W-H
meant rocIIoii 8 of the township on
range -li) north, 17 west. If Thorpe
wished to purchase the whole section
that description would milllco. On the
other hand. If he wished to buy only
0110 forty ho described Its position In
the quarter section. Thus SV XV
411-17 8 meant the southwest forty of
the northwest quarter of section 8 In
the township already described.
The clerk inaiked across each square
of his map as Thorpe read them the
date and the purchaser's name.
In his notebook Thorpe had of course
entered the briefest description possi
ble. Now, indicating to tho cleik. he
conceived tho Idea of specifying each
subdivision. This gained some time,
instead of saying simple, "Northwest
corner of section 8," he inadc of It four
separate descriptions, ns follows: North-
wosi quarter 01 iiuiumi-Bi iinu tt-i , j
northeast of northwest quarter; south
west of northwest quarter, ihhI south
east of northwest quarter.
lie was not so foolish as to read the
descriptions In succession, but so scat
tered them that the clerk, putting down
tlio llgures incchnnlcally, had no Idea
of the amount of unnecessary work he
was doing. Tho minute hands of the
clock dragged around. Thorpe droned
down the loug column. The clerk
scratched Industriously, repeating In n
half voice each description as It was
At length the task was finished. It
became necessary to type duplicate
lists of the descriptions. While the
somnolent youth llnlbhed his task
Thorpe listened for the messenger boy
011 the stairs.
A faint slam was heard outside the
rickety old building. Hasty steps
sounded along the corridor. The land.
looker merely stopped the drumming
of his lingers on the broad arm of the
chair. The door flew open, anil Wal
lace Carpenter walked quickly to him.
Thorpe's face lighted up ns ho rose
to greet his partner. The boy had not
forgotten their compact nfter nil.
"Then It's all right?" queried tho lat
"Sure!" answered Thorpo heartily.
"Got 'em In good shape."
At the saino time he was drawing the
youth beyond the vigilant watchfulness
of Mr. Morrison.
"You're Just In time," he wild in an
undertone. "Never had so close a
squeak. I suppose jou have cash or a
rertltled check. That's all they'll take
"What do you mean?" asked Carpc"'
ler blankly. '
"Haven't you that money?" rctnrnosl
Ziorpe quick as a hawk.'"
"Kor heuven'a sake, Isn't It here?"
irled Wallace In consternation. "I

lie answered that he'1 see to It
Haven't you seen him?"
"No," repeated Thorpe In his turn.
i "What can we do?"
"Cau you get your check certified
hero near at hand?"
"v..a ' y
"Well, go do It. And get n movo ou
you. You have precisely until that boy
there Mulshes ticking that machine not
a second longer."
"Can't you get them to wait a few
"Wallace," snld Thorpe, "do you see
that whlfr whiskered old lynx In tl
corner? That's Morrison, the man who
wants to get our laud. If I fall to
plunk down the cash the very Instant It

Is demanded ho nuts his chance. And
he'll tal.e It. Now ko. Don't hurry tin
til you jtot beyond the door, then tly,"
Thorpe wit down again In his hrond
nrmed chair and lesuinod his drum
ming. The nearest hank was nix blocks
nwny. lie counted over In his mind the
steps of Cariienter's progress now
the door, now In tho next block, now so
fur beyond. He had Just escorted him
to the door of the bank when the
clerk's voice broke In on hlm.
"Now," Smlthers was saying, "I'll
give you a receipt for the amount nud
later will send to your address the title
deeds of the descriptions."
Onipntor had yet to Mud the proper
olllclal to Identify himself, to certiry
the check and leturn. It was hopeless.
I Thorpe dropped his hands In surrender.
Then ho saw the boy lay the two
typed lists before his principal, and
dimly ho perceived that tho youth,
shamefacedly, was holding something
bulky toward himself.
"Wh-what Is It?" he stammered,
drawlnghl.s hand back ns though from
rod I lot Iron.
"You asked me 'for a telegram," said
the Iwy stubbornly, lis though trying
to excuse himself, "und I didn't Just
catch tho name anyway. When I saw
It on those lists I had to copy t thought
of this here."
"Where did you get It?" asked
"A fellow came hero early nud left
It for you while I wns sweeping out."
explained the boy. "Said he had to
catch a train. It's yours, nil right,
"Oh, yes," replied Thorpe.
He took the envelopo mid walked un
certainly to tlio tall window. He look
ed out at tho chimneys. After 11 mo
ment he tore open the envelope.
"1 hope there's no bad news, sir?"
said tho clerk, startled at tho paleness
of the face Thorpo turned to tho desk.
"No," replied the land looker. "Give
me n receipt. There's a certified check
for your money!"
HXT flay tho nrtlcles of partner
ship were drawn, and Carpen
ter gavo bis note for the neces
sary expenses. Then, lu an
swer to a penciled card which Mr.
Morrison had evidently left nt Thorpe's
hotel In person, both young men called
nt tho lumberman's place of business.
They weio ushered Immediately Into
the private olllce.
Mr. Morrison wns n smart little man,
with an Ingratiating manner nnd a
fishy eye. He greeted Thorpo with
marked gcnlnllty. r
"My opponent of yesterday,", he cried
Jocularly. "Sit down, Mr. Thorpe. Al
though you did me out of some land I
had made every preparation to pur
chase. I can't but ndinlre your grit and
resourcefulness. How did you get here
ahead of us?"
"I walked across the upper peninsu
la and c-itmht a boat," replied Thorpe
"Indeed. Indeed!" replied Mr. Morrl
Min. placing the tips of his lingers to
gether, "i:ctraordlmiry! Well. Mr.
Thorpe, you oxerreached us nicely, and
I suppose we must pay for our cniv
lessness. We must have that pine even
though we pay stumpage on It. Now
what would jou consider 11 fair price
"It Is not forsnlo." answered Thorpe
"We'll waive all that. Of course It
Is to your Interest to make illillciiltlos
and run the pi-lee up us high as you
can I tut my time Is somewhat oirii
pled JiHt at present. m I would hi
very glad to hear jour top.prWe. We
tv-IU come to an ngie'einent afterward."
"You do not understand v me. Mr
Morrison. I told .01rthc pine Is no.
for sale, and I mean It."
"Itui Miieiy Wh.it did you buy It
Air, then?" cried Mr. Monlsou. with
-Idcnu's of a glow lug e.cltenieut.
"We Intend in niaiiiil'.ieture it." t .
Mr. Mori Noti's llslij eyes nearly pop
ped out of his hi'iiilt He controlled
himself with 1111 effort. v
"Mr. Thorpe." said he. "let us try to
be reasonable. Our case stands this
way: We have gone to a great deal of
expense ou the (jss.iwlnnuiiikeu In ex
pectation of undertaking very exten
sive operations there. To that end we
have cleared the stream, built three
dams and have laid the foundations of
I harbor and boom. This has been
very expensive. Now, your purchase

to which there are several millions

lugs are farther up slroam and com
prise only about the equal of yours."
"Thiee hundred millions nre not to
be sneezed at," replied Thorpe.
"Certainly not." agieed Morrison
suavely, gnlnlng conlldence In tlio
sound of lils own olce. "Not In this
country, lint you must remember that
a man goes Into tho nortlxT.n peninsula
only because ho can get something bet
ter there than here. When the llrm of
Morrison As Daly establishes Itself now
It must bo for the lust time. Wo want
enough timber to do us for tile rest of
the tiino wo are lu business,"
"In that enso you will have to hunt
