she tasked. "Coming into town you

Abner' smiled slyly and averted bis
face toward the street that she might
not observe its expression.

think of yourself, you ought to think

"Thafs right; claw me, iliss Cat"
Abner laughed oven more merrily than
ever. He turned to greet Howard,
who, with a colorless face and despond
ent walk, now met them. , :.
"I want to talk with both of you,"
Abner said. "In the fost''' place, you
are going to eat dinner at the hotel
with' me at 12 o'clock sharp. Come on
an' lef s go up to tbe parlor an'- git
out o' this roastin' sun."
Neither of the two offered any ' pro
test and in a few minutes they" Were
seaieoi the 'big, cool reception room,
with its high windows, lace curtains,
marble topped -. center table4, square
rosewood piano and - chairs and sofa
upholstered in satin. .
"Now, let's all git down to business,"
Abner said, for the first time betraying
ft certain awkwardness. -, "Howard, I
want to tell' you something ' Yoi an'
Mary both may have noticed 'that I al
ways lovecf to write occasional things
from, out, oar way. to the Clarion. I
Hon't know, bat it was ; the finest
amusement'! ever had. Seein' yore
know
wu lueas in , print t somehow is like
ieariu' yorese'f orate when you are in
yore best trim an' everybody else is
quiet. ' ; '
"So while I never talked it even to
friends I have always thought I'd like
to own a newspaper. I reckon I'd have
had one before this, but I was afeard
I couldn't run the whole shebang by
myself. However, all yore talk, How
ard, about goin off kept aimmerin' in
my mind till I got newspaper so much
in my head that I had fo take action.
Now, you may think me a fool, but I've
gone an' bought a paper at least, I've
made a payment on one, , an' the deal
is as good as closed. Now, what do
you think? This is the way the mat
ter stands. I'll make a bom idiot o'
myself ef I can't git a young man '
brains to run tbe thing fer me. I've
bought what's left of the Clarion, an'
ef you'll cut out this trip o" yore'n to
the wild and woolly west and lay hold
here with me you will , do me a big
favor.; , - . . " V
The young eouple stared incredulous
ly. "Are you in earnest?" Howard ask
ed,' and Mary leaned forward, a blaze
Of understanding kindling in her eyes
and face. '
"Yes; I'm in earnest, and you've got
o stick to me, my boy. You can make
this thing fairly hum. You may have
full swing. 111 trust it all to ' yore
judgment. Well agree on the terms.
All I'd expect ' woufd be a moderate'
rate, of interest for the money 'nvest
ed, and you may have the rest."
Mary's eyes were full of tears. -.She
started to speak, but choked up. How
ard " was deeply moved. "I'm not
worthy of -it, Uncle Ah. Of all things,
it is what I'd like best, -but I ought not
to let you" " .
"Cut all that out," Abner said firmly.
"You will not 'only give the Clarion
ney life, but between us we- can build
this town up. " The place is in prime
condition to git a boom on herself. She
lies fine here at the meetin' point &'
two railroads. an'. , the new one thafs
talked of may be induced to head this
way. A - month " f r&m ; now Hillhotise

paper must go to the scrap- heap; every
line in our paper most 'be printed at
home so we can control our advertising
space. , Now yon two talk it over while
I" run down to" the washroom an' git
the dust out my whiskers." v '
"Oh, isn't he good?" Mary all but sob
bed When she and Howard were alope.
"Howard, your mother Will be the -happiest
woman in the world when she
hears the news.", .
"It is a great opportunity," the young
man answered, "and I'm going to do
my best to prove myself worthy of pn
cle Ab's confidence." 1
""A step was J&eari,i the corridor out-'
side and Cora Lsnghaw and her moth
er came ia. Howard rose to greet them,
whJLle Mary stared steadily out through
the open door.' - i. ;;( ';' v-v-
Immediately after dinner Abner went
to the bank and thence down to' -the!
office of the -Clarion. He ound Hill
house in tbe main' room seated at his
desk. A thing which had an ominous
look to Abner was the ten dollar bill
still lying on the table where he bad
left it. , Abner ibent over it without
touching it a resentful-expression m
his face. V
"What's tbis-3onfederate money?"
be half laughed. "At first sight I tuck
it fer the greenback I laid thar to clinch
our trade-. J6Jf it Is genuine f.'A put ft
in my hip pocket or weight it down
with some's or other." ; ( .r
"I, don't want year monej Ab." ,
Yo say you don't?' Well, that's a
good trait ;Jn ' yw, Hillhouse. Most
folks in these days o graft will take
any money they kin lay bands on, but
as you own this bill yon needn't have
any scruples. In fact, I've just, come
In to hand you a lot more. Here is
fourteen hundred and ninety, as crisp
as dry leaves round a campflre."
''I know I'm aetin' like a baby," Hill
bouse all but whimpered. "I know my
own mind, Ab; but J've lived with a
wttshy-washy woman so long that I'm
a stave to her whims. X want , to sell

know she's a great band to cultivate

talk a few minutes, then all at once
she up and asked me if I had seen the
fellows that was toying to get np the
money to buy the Clarion. I told her
I hadn't and asked her why she want

( " 'Because,' said she, 'they are a pret
ty pair of fools if they think I'd sell

resident hasn't an inch of space to

.. CHAPTER V.
Abner . and Mrs. Hillhouse.
ELL, there it rests," Hillhouse
labored and was delivered of I
a deep groan as Abner sneer
ed at him. "If I had told
her about our talk-that I'd listen to
your proposition with any notion of
taking it uprwell," she . would have
clawed - my eyes out. on lfhe spot. I
know the woman, Ab, and you don't.
Sou never have lived with her."
"No, thank God I mean, HillhousaJ'
Abner corrected quickly, "that she
hain't treatin' you half decent. You
