ABNER I DANIEL CHAPTER IIContinued. No one spoke for a moment. How ever, Mrs Bishop finally retorted, as her brother knew she would in her own tmie. "I don't call buyin' thousands o' acres o' unsalable land providin' fer anything except the porehouse," she fumed. "That's beca'se you don't happen to know as much about the business as I do," said Bishop, with a satisfied chuckle, which to the observing Dan iel sounded very much like exultation. "When you all know what I know, you'll be laughin' on t'other sides o' yore mouths. I reckon I'll jest have to let you all know about this or I won't have a speck o' peace from now on. I didn't tell you at fust beca'se nobody kin keep a secret as well as the man it belongs to, an' I was afeered it ud leak out an' damage my interests, but tins last 5,000 acres jest about sweeps all the best timber in the whole Cohutta section, an' I ruought as well let up. I reckon you all know that efI say efmy land was nigh a railroad it ud be low at five times what I paid fer it, don't you? Well, then, the long an' short of it is that I happen to be on the inside an' know that a railroad is gom' to be run from Blue Lick Junction to Darley. It'll be started inside of the next 3Teer an' '11 run smack dab through my proper ty. Thar now! You know more'n you thought you did, don't you?" The little group stared into his glow ing face incredulously. "A railroad is to be built, father?" exclaimed Alan. "That's what I said." Mrs. Bishop's eyes flashed with sud den hope, and then, as if remembering her husband's limitations, her face fell. "Alfred," she asked skeptically, "how does it happen that you know about the railroad before other folks does?" "How do I? That's it nowhow do I?" and the old man laughed freely. "I've had my fun out o' this thing, listenin' to what every crank said about me bein' cracked an' so on, but I was jest a-lyin' low waitin' fer my time." "Well, I'll be switched!" ejaculated Abner Daniel, half seriously, half sar castically. "Geewhihkins! A railroad! I've always said one would pay like rips an' open up a dern good, God fersaken country. I'm glad you are a-gom' to start one, Alfred." Alan's face was filled with an ex pression of blended doubt and pity for his father's credulity. "Father," he said gently, "are you sure you got your Information straight?" "I got it from headquarters." The old man raised himself on his toes and knocked his heels together, a habit he had not indulged in for many a year "It was told to me confidentially by a man who knows all about the whole thing, a man who is in the employ o' the company that's goin' to build it." "Huh!" The exclamation was Ab ner Daniel's. "Do you mean that At lanta lawyer, Perkins?" Bishop stared, his mouth lost some of its pleased firmness, and he ceased the motion of his feet. "What made .\ou mention his name?" he asked curiously "Oh. I dunno Somehow *I jest thought o' him. He looks to me like he mought be buildin' a railroad ur two "Well, that's the man I mean," said Bishop, more uneasily Somehow the others were all looking at Abnu Daniel, who grunted sudden ly and almost angnly. "I wouldn't trust that skunk no fur der 'n I could fling a bull bj the tail." "You saj you wouldn't?" Bishop tried to smile, but the effort was a fa cial failure. "I wouldn't trust 'im nuther, Brother Ab," chimed in Mrs. Bishop. "As soon as 1 laid eyes on 'im I knowed he wouldn't do He's too mealy mouthed an' Caw niu' Butter wouldn't melt in his mouth He bragged on ever'thing we had while he was heer. Now, Al fred, what we must git at is, what was his object in tellin' you that tale "Obiect!" thundered her husband, losing his temper in the face of the aw ful possibility that her words hinted at "Are you all a pack an' passle o' fools? If you must dive an' probe, then I'll tell j'ou he owns a slice o' timber land above Holley creek, j'inin' some o' mine, an' so he let me into the secret out o' puore good will. Oh, you all cayn't skeer me. I ain't one o' the skeerin' kind." But, notwithstanding this outburst, it was plain that doubt had actually taken root the ordinarily cautious mind of the crude speculator. Abner Daniel laughed out harshly all at once and then was silent. "What's the matter?" asked his bister in de spair "I was jest a-wonderin'," replied her brother. "You are?' said Bishop angrily. "It seems to me you don't do much else." "Folks 'at wonders a lot ain't so apt to believe ever'thing they heer," re torted Abner. "I was just a-wonderin' why that little, spindle shanked Peter Mosely has been holdin' his head so high the last week or so. I'll bet I could make a durn good guess now." "What under the sun's Peter Moselv $!.'-Sfs/W W^ s^N Author of "Xaeslerfetl" *t t tt t t! *t $ I Copyright. 1902. by HAR.PER. B&OS.. Who Publish the Work In Book Form. All 1 lights Reserved got to do with my business?" burst from Bishop's impatient lips. "He's got a sorter roundabout con nection with it, I reckon," smiled Ab ner grimly. "I happen to know that Abe Tompkins sold'im 2,000 acres o' timber land on Huckleberry ridge jest atter yore Atlanta man spent the day lookin' round in these parts." Bishop was no fool, and he grasped Abner's meaning even before it was quite clear to the others. "Looky heer," he said sharply, "what do you take me fer?" "I 'ain't tuck you fer nothin'," said Abner, with a grin. "Leastwise, I 'ain't tuck you fer $5,000 wuth o' cot- "You mean to say" ton mill stock. To make a long story short, the Atlanta jack leg lawyer is akin to the Tompkins family some way. I'd bet a new hat to a ginger cake that Perkins never owned a spoonful o' land up heer an' that he's Jest he'pin' the Tompkins folks on the sly to unload some o' the'r land, so they kin move west, whar they've al ways wanted to go. Peter Mosely is a man on the watch out fer rail soft snaps, an' when Perkins whispered the big secret in his yeer, like he did to you, he started out on a still hunt fer timbered land on the line of the pro posed trunk line due west vy-ah Lick skillet to Darley, with stop over privi leges at Buzzard Roost an' fifteen min utes fer hash at Dog Trot Springs. Then, somehow or other, by hook or crookmostly crookAbe Tompkins wasn't dodgin' anybody about that time. Peter Mosely could 'a' run agin 'im with his eyes shut on a dark night. "I was at Neil Filmore's store when the two met, an' ef a trade was ever made quicker betwixt two folks it was done by telegraph an' the paper was signed by lightnin'. Abe said he had the land an' wouldn't part with it at any price ef he hadn't been bad in need o' money, fer he believed it was chuck full o' iron ore, soapstone, black marble an' water power, to say nothin' o' tim ber but he'd been troubled so much about cash, he said, that he'd made up his mind to let 'er slide an' the devil take the contents. I never seed two parties to a deal better satisfied. They both left the store with a strut. Mose ly's strut was the biggest, fer he wasn't afeerd o' nothin'. Tompkins looked like he was afeerd Mosely 'ud call 'im back an' want to rue "You mean to say"- But old Bishop seemed unable to put his growing feai into words "Oh, I don't know nothin' fer cer- tain," said Abner Daniel sympa thetically, "but ef I was you I'd go down to Atlanta an' see Perkins. You kin tell by the way he acts whether thar's anything in his railroad story or not. But, by gum, you ort to know whar you stand. You've loaded ycre se'f from hind to fore quarters, an' ef you don't plant yore feet on some'n you'll go down." Bishop clutched this proposition as a drowning man would a straw. "Well, I will go see 'im," he said. "I'll go jest to satisfy you. As fer as I'm concerned I know he wasn't tellin' me no lie, but I reckon you all never '11 rest till you are satisfied." He descended the steps and crossed the yard to the barn. They saw him lean over the rail fence for a moment as if in troubled thought. "Poor father," said Alan to his uncle as his mother retired slowly into the house. "He seems troubled, and it may mean our ruinabsolute ruin." "It ain't no triflin' matter," admitted Daniel. "Thar's no tellin' how many thousand acres he may have bought. He keepin' somethin' to hisse'f I re member jest when that durn skunk of a lawyer put that flea in his yeer They was at Hanson's mill an' talked con fidential together mighty nigh all morn ta But let's not cross a bridge tell we git to it. Let's talk about some'n else. I bam never had a chance to tell you but 1 seed that gal in town yesterday an' talked to 'er." "Did you, Uncle Ab?" The face of the young man brightened. His tone was eager and expectant. "Yes. I'd hitched in the wagon yard an' run into Hazen's drugstore to git a box o' axle grease an' was comin' out with the durn stuff under my arm when I run upon 'er a-settin' in a bug gy waitin' to git a clerk to fetch 'er out a glass o' sody water. She recog nized me, an' fer no other earthly rea son than that I'm yore uncle she spoke to me as pleasin' as a basket o' chips. What was I to do? I never was in such a plight in my life, I'd been un loadin' side meat at Bartow's ware house an' was kivered from head to foot with salt and grease. I didn't have on no coat, an' the seat o' my pants was non estI don't think thar was any est about 'em, to tell the truth. But I knowed it wouldn't be the part of a gentleman to let 'er set thar stretchin' 'er neck out o' socket to call a clerk when I was handy, so I wheel ed about, hopin' an' prayin' ef she did look at me she'd take a fancy to the back o' my head', an' went in the store an' told 'em to git a hustle on the'r se'ves. When I come out, she hauled me up to ax some questions about when camp meetin' was goin' to set in this yeer an' when Adele was comin' home. I let my box o' axle grease drap, an' it rolled like a wagon wheel off duty an' me after it, bendin' bendin' of all positionsheer an' yan in the most ridiculous way. I tell you, I'd never play croquet ur leapfrog in them pants. All the way home I thought how I'd disgraced you." "Oh, you are all right, Uncle Ab," laughed Alan. "She's told me several times that she likes you very much. She says you are genuinegenuine through and through, and she's right." "I'd ruther have her say it than any other gal I know," said Abner. "She's purty as red shoes, an' ef I'm any judge she's genuwine too. I've got an other idee about 'er, but I ain't a-givin' it away jest now." "You mean that she" "No," and the old man smiled mis chievously. "I didn't mean nothin' o' the sort I wonder how on earth you could 'a' got sech a notion in yore head. I'm goin' to see how that black scamp has left my cotton land. I'll bet he hain't scratched it any deeper 'n a old hen would 'a' done lookin' fer worms." CHAPTER III. HE next morning at breakfast Alfred Bishop announced his intention of going to Atlanta to talk to Perkins and inci dentally to call on his brother William, who was a successful wholesale mer chant in that city. "I believe I would," said Mrs. Bish op. "Maybe William will tell you what to do." "I'd see Perkins fust" advised Abner Daniel. "Ef I felt shore Perkins had bunkoed me, I'd steer cleer o' William. I'd hate to heer 'im let out on that sub ject He's made his pile by keepin' a sharp lookout" "I hain't had no reason to think I have been lied to," said Bishop dogged ly as he poured his coffee into his saucer and shook it about to cool. "A body could hear his deathknell rung ev ery minute ef he'd jest listen to old women an' "Old bachelors," interpolated Abner. "I reckon they are alike. The longer a man lives without a woman the more he gits like one. I reckon that's beca'se the man 'at lives with one don't see nothin' wuth copyin' in 'er an' vice-a versy." Mrs. Bishop had never been an ap preciative listener to her brother's phi losophy. She ignored what he had just said and its accompanying smile, which was always Abner's subtle apology for such observations. "Are you goin' to tell Adele about the railroad?" she asked. "I reckon I won't tell 'er to git up a' excursion over it 'fore the crossties is laid," retorted Bishop sharply, and Ab ner Daniel laughed, that sort of re sponse being in his own vein. "I was goin' to say," pursued the softly treading wife, "that I wouldn't mention it to 'er efefMr. Perkins ain't to be relied on, beca'se she wor ries enough already about our pore way o' livin' compared to her uncle's folks. Ef she knowed how I spent last night, she'd want to come back. But I ain't a-goin' to let Brother Ab skeer me yet It is jest too awful to think about What on earth would we do? What would we, I say?" That afternoon Bishop was driven to Darley by a negro boy who was to bring the buggy back home. He first repaired to a barber shop, where he was shaved, had his hair cut and his shoes blacked then he went to the sta tion half an hour before time and im patiently walked up and down the platform till the train arrived. It was 6 o'clock when he reached At lanta and made his way through the jostling crowd in the big passenger depot out into the streets. He had his choice of going at once to the residence of his brother, on Peachtree street, the most fashionable avenue of the city, or looking up Perkins in his office. He decided to unburden his mind by at once calling on the lawyer, whose of fice was in a tall building quite near at hand. It was the hour at which Perkins usually left for home, but the old plant er found him in. "Oh, It's you, Mr. Bishop," he said suavely as he rose from his desk in the dingy, disordered little room, with its single window. He pushed a chair forward. "Sit down didn't know you were in town at your brother's, 1 reck on. How are the crops up the road? Too much rain last month. I'm afraid." Bishop sank wearily into the chair. He had tired himself out thinking over what he would say to the man before him and with the awful contemplation of what the man might say to him. THE PRINCETON UNION: THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1903. W^^^^W^fW^^WW^^^^W "They are dtdn' as well as can ne ex* pected," he aiade answer. But he didn't approve of even that platitude, for he was plain and outspoken and hadn't come all that distance for a mere exchange of courtesies. Still, he lacked the faculty to approach easily the subject which had grown so heavy within the last twenty-tour hours and of which he now almost stood in terror. "Well, that's good," returned Per kins. He was a swarthy man of fifty five or sixty, rather tall and slender, with a bald head that sloped back sharply from heavy, jutting brows, un der which a pair of keen black eyes shone and shifted. "Come down to see jour daughter," he said "good thing for her that you have a brother In town. By the way, he's a fine type of a man. He's making headway too. "You are a scoundrel, Perkins," he said His trade is stretching out all direc tions funny how different you two are!" "I 'lowed I'd see William 'fore I went back," said Bishop rather irrele vantly. Then, seeing that Perkins was staring at him rather fixedly, he said it was a verbal plunge. "I bought some more timber land yesterday!" "Oh, you did? That's good." Per kins' eyes fluttered once or twice be fore his gaze steadied itself on the face of the man before him. "Well, as I told you, Mr. Bishop, that sort of a thing is a good investment I reckon it's already climbing up a little, ain't it?" "Not much yet" It struck Bishop that he had given the lawyer a splen did opportunity to speak of the chief cause for an advance in value, and his heart felt heavier as he finished. "But I took quite a slice the last time 5,000 acres at the old figure, you know a dollar a acre." "You don't say! That was a slice." Bishop drew himself up in his chair and inhaled a deep breath. It was as if he took into himself in that way the courage to make his next remark. "I got it from the Tompkins estate." "You don't say! I didn't know they had that much on hand." "Sence I bought the land I've acci dentally heerd that you are some kin o' that family." Perkins staited slightly and raised his brows. "Oh, yes! On my wife's side, away off, some way or other. I believe the original Tompkins that settled there from Virginia was my wife's grand father. I never was much of a hand to go into such matters." "When I heerd that, Perkins, it was natural fer me to wonder why you.coupleresulted you seewhy you didn't tell them about the railroad." The sallow features of the lawyer seemed to stiffen. He drew himself up coldly and a wicked expression flashed in his eyes. "Take my advice, old man," he snarled as he threw down his pen and stared doggedly into Bishop's face. "Stick to your farming and don't waste your time asking a professional lawyer questions which have no bearing on your business whatever. Now. really, do I have to explain to you my per sonal reasons for not favoring the Tompkins people with aI may say any piece of information?" Bishop was now as white as death. His worst suspicions were confirmed he was a ruined man there was no further doubt about that Suddenly he felt unable to bridle the contemptuous fury that raged within him. "I think I know why you didn't tell 'em," was what he hurled at the law yer. "You think you do?" "Yes it was beca'se you knowed no road was goin' to be built. You told Pete Mosely the same tale you did me, an' Abe Tompkins unloaded on 'im. That's a way you have o' doin' busi- ness." Perkins stood up. He took his silk hat from the top of his desk and put it on. "Oh, yes, old man," he sneered "I'm a terribly dishonest fellow, but I've got company in this world. Now, really, the only thing that has wor ried me has been your un-Christian act In buying all that land from the Tomp kins heirs at such a low figure when the railroad will advance its value so greatly. Mr. Bishop, I thought you were a good Methodist." "Oh, you kin laugh an' jeer all you like," cried Bishop, "but I can handle you fer this." "You are not as well versed in the law as you are in fertilizers, Mr. Bish op," sneered the lawyer. "In order to make a case against me you'd have to publicly betray a matter I told to you in connaence, ana tnen what would you gain? I doubt if the court would force me to explain a private matter like this where the interests of my cli ents are concerned, and if the court did I could simply show the letters I have regarding the possible construc tion of a railroad in your section. If you remember rightly, I did not say the thing was an absolute certainty. On top of all this you'd be obliged to prove collusion between me and the Tompkins heirs over a sale made by their attorney, Mr. Trabue. There is one thing certain, Mr. Bishop, and that is that you have forfeited your right to any further confidence in this mat ter. If the road is built, you'll find out about it with the rest of your peo ple. You think you acted wisely in at tacking me this way, but you have simply cut off your nose to spite your face. Now, I have a long car ride be fore me, and it's growing late." Bishop stood up. He was quivering as with palsy. His voice shook and rang like that of a madman "You are a scoundrel, Perkins," he said"a dirty blacksnake in the grass! I want to tell you that!" "Well. I hope you won't make any charge foi it." "No it's free." Bishop turned to the door. There was a droop upon his whole body. He dragged his feet a' he moved out into the unhghted corri dor, where he paused irresolutely. So great was nis agony that he almost obeyed an impulse to go back and fall at the feet of Perkms and implore his aid to rescue him and his family from impending ruin. The lawyer was mov ing about the room, closing his desk and draAvmg down the indow shade. TO BE CONTINUED. GREAT DAY FOR THE ELKS. thousands Attending National Reunion at Baltimore.
