,nose was frankly red and who shed
itears on the raspberries, had prepared
an appetizing table at his elbow.
"Yes," responded the judge, "and I'm

When she gives up she'll be pretty bad
over it but I guess we all will. It's
terribly sudden, somehow, though it's
only what everybody half expected
would come, only we thought it would
come from over yonder." He nodded
toward the west. "But she's got to stay
here with us. Boarding at Tibbs' with
that old man won't do, and she's no
girl to live in two rooms. You fix it
up with heryou make her stay."
"She must," answered his daughter
as she knelt beside him and patted his
coat and handed him several things
to eat at the same time. "Mr. Fisbee
will help me persuade her, now that

I" Minnie was speaking sadly, me
chanically, but suddenly she broke off
with a quick sob, turned to the win
dow, then turned again to Briscoe and
cried: "I don't believe it! He knew
how to take care of himself too well.
He'd have got away from them."
Her father shook his head. "Then
why hasn't he turned up? He'd have
gone home after the storm if something
bad wasn't the matter."
"But nothingnothing that bad
could have happened. They haven't
"But why hasn't he come back,
"Well, he's lying hurt somewhere,
that's all."
"Then why haven't they found him?"
"I don't care," she cried and choked
with the words and tossed her dishev
eled hair from her temples, "it isn't
true! Helen won't believe it. Why
should I? It's only a few hours since
he was right here in our yard talking
to us all. I won't believe it till they've
searched every stick and stone of Six
Crossroads and found him."
"It wasn't the Crossroads," said
the old gentleman, pushing the table
away and relaxing his limbs on the
sofa. "They probably didn't have any
thing to do with it. We thought they
'had at first, but everybody's about
come to believe it was those two fel
lows that he had arrested yesterday."
"It wasn't the Crossroads!" echoed
Minnie, and she began to tremble vio
lently. "Haven't they been out there
"What use? They are out of it, and
they can thank God they are."
"They are not!" she cried, very much
agitated. "They did it. It was the
White Caps. We saw them, Helen
and I."
The judge got upon his feet with an
oath. He had not sworn for years un
til that morning. "What's this?" he
said sharply.
"I ought to have told you before, but
we were so frightened, andand you
went off in such a rush after Mr. Wiley
was here. I never dreamed everybody
wouldn't know it was the Crossroads
that they would think of any one else.
And I looked for the scarecrow as soon
as it was light, and it was away off
from where we saw them and wasn't
blown down at all and Helen saw
them in the field besides saw all of

mean? Try to tell me about it quietly,
child." He laid his hand on her shoul
She told him breathlessly what she
and Helen had seen, and he grew more
pnd more visibly perturbed and un
feasy, biting his cigar to pieces and
groaning at intervals. When she had
finished he took a few quick turns
about the room, with his hands thrust
deep in his coat pockets, and then,
charging her to repeat the story to no
one, left the house and, forgetting his
fatigue, rapidly crossed the fields to
the point where the bizarre figures of
[the night had shown themselves to the
two girls at the window.
The soft ground had been trampled
Uy many feet. The boot prints pointed
to the northeast. He traced them back
ward to the southwest through the
field and saw where they had come
from near the road, going northeast
jthen, returning, he climbed the fence
and followed them northward through
jthe next field. From there the next field
to the north, lying beyond the road that
was a continuation of Main street,
stretched to the railroad embankment.
fFhe track, raggedly defined in tram
pled loam and muddy farrow, bent in
a direction which indicated that its
termins might be the switch where
the empty cars had stood last' night
waiting for the 1 o'clock freight. Though
the fields had been trampled in inaiJy
places by the searching parties, he felt
sure of the direction taken by the
Crossroads men, and he perceived that
the searchers had mistaken the tracks
he followed for those of earlier parties
in the hunt. On the embankment he
saw a number of men walking west
and examining the ground on each side
and a long line of people following
them out from town. He stopped. He
held the fate of Six Crossroads in his
hand, and he knew it.
The men on the embankment were
Walking slowly, bending far over, their
eyes fixed on the ground. Suddenly
one of them stood erect and tossed his
arms in the air and shouted loudly.
Other men ran to him, and another far
down the track repeated the shout and
the gesture to another far in his rear.
This man took it up and shouted and
waved to a fourth man, and so they
passed the signal back to town. There
came almost immediately three long,
loud whistles from a mill near the sta
tion, and the embankment grew black
with people pouring out from town,
while the searchers came running from
the fields and woods and underbrush
on both sides of the railway.
Briscoe began to walk on toward the
The track lay level and straight, not
dimming in the middle distances, the
rails converging to points both north
west and southeast in the clean washed
air like examples of perspective in a
Child's drawing book. About seventy
miles to the west and north lay Rouen.
In the same direction, nearly six miles
from where the signal was given, the'
track was crossed by a road leading
directly south to Six Crossroads.
The embankment had been newly
ballasted with sand. What had been
discovered was a broad brown stain in
the sand on the south slope near the
top. There were smaller stains above
and below, none beyond it to left or
right, and there were many deep foot
prints in the sand. Men were exam
ining the place excitedly, talking and
gesticulating. It was Lhje Willetts
who had found it. His horse was
tethered to a fence near by at the end
of a lane through a cornfield. Jared
Wiley, the deputy sheriff, was talking
to a group near the stain, explaining.
"You see, them two must have
knowed about the 1 o'clock freight and
that it was to stop here to take on the
empty lumber cars. I don't know how
they knowed it, but they did. It was
this way: When they got out the win
dow they beat through the storm
straight for this side track. At the
same time Mr. Harkless leaves Bris
coe's, goin' west. It begins to rain.
He cuts across to the railroad to have
a sure footin' and strikin' for the
deepo for shelternear place as any,
except Briscoe's, where he's said good
night already, and prob'ly don't wish
to go back, fear of givin' trouble or
keepin' 'em up. Anybody can under
stand that. He comes along and gets
to where we are precisely at the time
they do, them comin' from town, him
strikin' for it. They run right into
each other. That's what happened.
They re-cog-nized him and raised up
on him and let him have it. What they
done it with I don't know. We took
everything in that line off of 'em.
Prob'ly used railroad iron, and what
they done with him afterward we don't
know, but we will by night. They'll
sweat it out of 'em up at Rouen when
they get 'em."
"I reckon maybe some of us might
help," remarked Mr. Watts reflectively.
Jim Bardlock swore a violent oath.
"That's the talk!" he shouted. "Ef I
ain't the first man of this crowd to set
my foot in Roowun and first to beat in
that jail door I'm not town marshal
of Plattville, county of Carlow, state
of Indiana, and the Lord have mercy
on our souls!"
Tom Martin looked at the brown
stain and quickly turned away. Then
he went back slowly to the village.
On the way he passed Warren Smith.
"Is it so?" asked the lawyer.
Martin answered with a dry throat.
He looked out over the sunlit fields
and swallowed once or twice. "Yes,
It's so. There's a good deal of it there.
Little more than a boy he was." The
old fellow passed his seamy hand over
his eyes without concealment. "Peter
ain't very bright sometimes, it seems
to me," he added brokenly "overlook
Bodeffer and Fisbee and me, and all
of us old husks, andand"he gulp
ed suddenly, then finished"and act
the fool and take a boy that's the best
we had. I wish the Almighty would
take Peter off the gate. He ain't fit
fer it."
When the attorney reached the spot
where the crowd was thickest, way
was made for him. The old colored
man, Xenophon, approached at the
same time, leaning on a hickory stick
and bent very far over, one hand rest
ing on his hip as if to ease a rusty
Joint. The negro's age was an incentive
to fable. From his appearance he
might have known the prophets, and he
wore that hoary look of unearthly wis
dom which many decades of super
stitious experience sometimes give to
members of his race. His face, so tor
tured with wrinkles that it might have
been made of innumerable black
threads woven together, was a living
mask of the mystery of his blood.
Harkless had once said that Uncle
Xenophon had visited heaven before
Swedenborg and hell before Dante. To
day as he slowly limped over the ties
bis eyes were bright and dry under
the solemn lids, and, though his heavy
nostrils were unusually distended in
the effort for regular breathing, the
deeply puckered lips beneath them
were set firmly. He stopped and look
ed at the faces before him. When he
spoke his voice was gentle, and, though
the tremulousness of age harped on the
ocal strings, it was rigidly controlled.
"Kin some kine gelmun," he asked, THE PfilKCETCXN UNION: THirKSDSR
"please t' be so good ez tf show de ole
main whuh de W'ite Caips is done
shoot Marse Hawkliss?"
"Here was where it happened, Uncle
Zen," answered Wiley, leading him for
ward. "Here is the stain."
Xenophon bent over the spot on the
sand, making little odd noises in his
throat. Then he painfully resumed
his formra* position. "Dass his blood,"
he said in the same gentle, quavering
tone. "Dass my bes' frien' whut lay
on de groun' whay yo' staind, gelmun.
Dass whuh dey laid 'im, an' dass whuh
he lie," the old negro continued. "Dey
shot 'im in de fiel's. Dey ain't shot 'im
heah. Yondeh dey druggen 'im, but
dis whuh he lie." He bent over again,
then knelt groaningly and placed his
hand on the stain, one would have
said, as a man might place his hand
over a heart to see if it still beat. He
was motionless, with the air of heark
"Marse, honey, is you gone?" He
raised his voice as if calling. "Is yo'
gone, suhmarse?"
He looked up at the circle about him,
and then, still kneeling, not taking his
hand from the sand, seeming to wait
for a sign to listen for a voice, he said:
"Whafo' yo' gelmun think de good
Lawd summon Marse Hawkliss? Kase
he de mos' fittes'? You know, dat man
he ketch me in de cole night, wintuh
'fo' lais,' stealin' 'is wood. You know

Xenophon, keepin' all dis wood stock'

Tek me in say he lahk a thief pay me
sala'y feed me. Dass de main whut
de Caps gone shot lais* night." He
raised his head sharply, and the mys
tery in his gloomy eyes intensified as
they opened wide and stared at the
sky unseeingly.
"Ah's bawn wid a cawl!" he exclaim
ed loudly. His twisted frame was
braced to an extreme tension. "Ah's
bawn wid a cawl! De blood anssuh!"
"It wasn't the White Caps. Uncle
Xenophon," said Warren Smith, laying
his hand on the old man's shoulder.
Xenophon rose to his feet. He
stretched a long, bony arm straight to
the west, where the Crossroads lay
stood rigid and silent, like a seer then
"De men whut shot Marse Hawk

There were exclamations from the
listeners, for Xenophon spoke as one
having authority. Suddenly he turned
and pointed his outstretched hand full
at Judge Briscoe.
"An' dass de main," he cried "dass

Before Briscoe answered, Eph Watts
looked at him keenly and then turned
to Lige Willetts -and whispered: "Get

courthouse bell like fury. Do as I
Tears stood in the judge's eyes. "It
is so," he said solemnly. "He speaks
the truth. I didn't mean to tell it to
day, but somehow" He paused.
"The hounds!" he cried. "They de
serve it. My daughter saw them cross
ing the fields in the nightsaw them
climb the fence, a big crowd of them.
She and the lady who is visiting us
saw themsaw them plainly. The
lady saw them several times clear as

show for his life among them. Do

of it, dead or alive, bring him back!"
A. voice rang out above the clamor
that followed the judge's speech.
'Bring him back!' God could, may
be, but he won't Who's travelin' my
way? I go west!" Hartley Bowlder
had ridden his sorrel right up the em
bankment, and the horse stood between
the rails.
There was an angry roar from the
crowd. The prosecutor pleaded and
threatened unheeded, and, as for the
deputy sheriff, he declared his intention
of taking with him all who wished to
go as his posse. Eph Watts succeeded
In making himself heard above the
"The square!" he shouted. "Start

We'll need them. And we want every

"Don't you worry about that."
"We want to get into some sort of
hape!" cried Eph.
"Shape!" repeated Hartley Bowlder
There was a hiss and clang and rat
tle behind him, and a steam whistle
shrieked. The crowd divided, and
Hartley's sorrel scrambled down just
In time as the westbound accommoda
tion rushed by on its way to Rouen.
From the rear platform leaned the
Bheriff, Horner, waving his hands fran
tically as he flew by, but no one un
derstood or cared what he said or in
the general excitement even wondered
why he was going away. When the
train had dwindled to a dot and dis
appeared and the noise of its rush
grew faint the courthouse bell was
heard ringing, and the m4b was rush
tag pellmell into the village to form on
the square. The judge stood alone on
the embankment.
"That settles it," he said aloud,
gloomily watching the last figures. He
took off his hat and pushed back the
thick white hair from his forehead.
"Nothing to do but wait. Might as well
go home for that. Blast, it!" he ex
claimed impatiently. "I don't want to
go there, it's too hard on the little
girl. If she hadn't come till next week
she'dnever have knownJohn Harkless."
