A
Hf
game by putting the evidence of one
of his former escapades into ttie
hands of the young woman is in
genious, but it won't work. A
against the lightest word of a pro
fessed lover, all the newspaper
charges in the world would weigh
as hydrogenor coronium, if that be
lighter. None the less, I'll send you
the newspaper clippings, if I can un
earth them in the files.
Sincerely, as always,
DICK.
(President Baldwin, of the Glenlivat
Land Company, to Chief Engi
neer Wykamp.)
Dear Sir:
Yours of the 16th, stating that you
have made excavations on the site
last chosen for the dam in the upper
canyon is at hand.
Without going into the technicali
ties, I must say that I think you are
mistaken. I went over the ground
last year with our consulting engi
neer, and he is quite sure that a dam
at the point where you are working
will be entirely safe. Make such
changes in the plan of construction
as the nature of the substrata de
mands, and push ther work with the
utmost speed. With all due regard
for your opinion, I will say that I
have always found the members of
your profession inclined to err on the
side of permanence at the cost of
celerity and the work must bo
driven. Results are what we want.
Take another week for the exca
vating, and if you do not strike bed
rock, put in concrete andjbuild your
dam. A change to the former loca
tion, as you suggest, is impossible.
Macpherson will not sell, and he is a
man of means and influence, abund
antly strong enough to fight a battle
which would delay us indefinitely.
Moreover, the settlers are threaten
ing, and you must keep the peace at
all hazards. Your destruction of their
flume and ditch was exceedingly ill
advised, and if it be not too late, I
would suggest that these be re
placed. Yours truly,
JOHN BALDWIN,
President G. L. Co.
CHAPTER IX.
A MIDNIGHT VISIT.
.2*.
It was well on in the month oi
August before I had progressed far
nough on the road to convalescence
to bear removal frpm the farm
house at Valley Head to Macpher
son's and after the buckboard trip
to the ranch at Six-Mile became a pos
sibility, I still lingered on at Selter's,
"being by that time critically inter
ested in the small tragi-comedy work
ing itself out under my eyes as theschool
long summer days waxed and waned.
Interested, I say, but involved would
be the better word. I could no longer
call myself an onlooker.
If there were other reasons for
my stayif, in those short weeks
which will always be marked with a
red letter in any poor calendar of
mine, there had come into my life
a thing which common' loyalty bade
me triple-lock in that chamber of the
heart which is at once the sanctuary
and the tomb of hopes unrealized
and unrealizable, I shall not unfold
it here. This is Macpherson's story,
and none of mine but if I say that
in those days of leaden-winged con
valescence Winifred Sanborn gained
an ally whose loyalty was not
measured by the hope of reward, it
is sufficient.
But though for me the days were
as the days of the lotus eaters, the
tragi-comedy went on, working out its
details with relentless precision. The
breach between Selter and the land
company widened day by day and
Wykamp's reckless by-play with the
Tennessean's daughter gave it theNeumann
depth of personal hatred as between
the vindictive descendant of the Re
demptioners and the engineer. Mac
pherson was still on the side of peace,
but it was evident that his influence
over Selter was strained to the
breaking point. In the family at thefrom
farm-house the daughter was at
sword's points with the father and
mother for Wykamp's sake and
though Wykamp had long since been
forbidden the house. Nan met himStienbach
and walked with him in open defi
ance of her father's interdiction.
It was in the hope that the girl
might still be induced to listen to
reason that I had written to Grant
ley but when the forgotten news
paper story was finally in my hands
I was as one who has been suddenly
made responsible for the safety of a
powder-magazine. For, Hidden under
the charitable hyperbole of the
rehouse
porter who had written the news
paper account, there was a story too
despicable for any recounting the
story of Wykamp's perfidy and Wini
fred Sanborn's dishonoring. Having
the proof in my hands, I knew not
what to do with it. It was incredible
that it should not bring the girl to
her senses but without showing it
to her I could hardly hope to make
her believe it. And to put the clip
ping, and Grantley's letter of expla
nationjvhich accompanied it, into the
hands Nancy Selter, was like set
ting the clocKwork of an infernal ma
chine in order and turning it over to
a passion-mad girl with power to set
it in motion. Bruited abroad, there
was no limit to the trouble for which
the story might be responsible, i
would inevitably destroy what small
peace of mind Winifred had been able
to gather up out of the wreck of the
past in the new environment. I
would probably cost Wykamp his life,
at the crack of the mountaineer's
rifle in ambush, or at the hands of a
vigilance committee upon which
every man in the settlement would
be eager to serve. Failing in this, it
might easily make a murderer of
Macpherson. I knew my friend's
character and the strength of it but
there be provocations too voigb&j to
's&-&:itrre&f
^I^PIP^ffl^MlflJllll "."fill
be shackled by any promise of for
bearance.
Under the circumstances I could do
nothing but watch and wait and, as
the time passed, I. did not dare to
leave the Selter household. Slowly,
and by inches, as it were, it- was
driven in upon me that I should be
compelled to set the infernal ma
chine in motion as a last resort, if
I would not be a party to another
crime but I refrained until it be
came clearly evident from Nan's con
temptuous attitude toward Winifred
that Wykamp had given the girl his
own version of the shameful tale.
After that, I waited only for what
might promise to be a fitting oppor
tunity.
The opportunity came one day
when Selter was afield, and her
mother's absence at one of the neigh
bor's left Nan alone wth me. They
had slung a hammock for me under
the shelter of the farm-house porch,
and the girl was sitting on the door
step, sewing. Not knowing any tra
jectory of indirection in such a mat
ter, I sent my. first shaft as straight
as I could aim it.

The American hop fields employ
about 40,000 men, women and children,

85,000,000 vines are shipped yearly,

carefully selected hops and the purest
barley malt "Golden Grain Belt" beer
is brewed. Pure, wholesome and deli

to tell them of something that will be

We refer to Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. W have used it with such
good results in our family so long that
it has become a household necessity.
By its prompt use we haven't any doubt
but that it has time and again prevent

have small children, always keep it in

Letter From Mille Lacs Lake.
Now that they have commenced
the agitation of a telephone line on
the west side of Mille Lacs lake
and also extending to the south
west side of the same, it is the
wishes of many living on the south
east shore of the lake to take up
the matter of telephone lines at
the lake and discuss it. Many in
this section have already com
menced to do so. Let us all put
our shoulders to the wheel and
push. We want a line and wemaytdeemhnecessary.
ought to have it. Many sugges
tions fiave been made in Isle Har
bor this winter and the people
have come to the conclusion that
if a telephone line can be con
structed to a railroad from the
lake that many will aid the enter
prise by taking shares of stock
and do what they can to help the
matter along. Let us take hold of
this project and make a success of
it. We have a good country here
and are proud of it. The people
here intend to get ahead and will
fall in line for anything that will
help develop this section.
In the meantime what is the
matter with clearing up the brush
in many places and sowing clover
and keep cows and raise pigs? We
are sure to get a railroad in time
and let us get in shape so that
when it reaches us we will have
something to market. We want
development of all kinds, but let
us commence to do a little our
selves, to start with.
