ly original character whose youthful
' cynicism and blunt, honest temper had
| always attracted him. He wax a fair
Hchofar, with a possibility of being a
better one, nnd the proposed arrangeinent
with Uncle Ben would not interfere
with the discipline of school hours
and might help them both. Nevertheless
ho asked good-humoredlv, "But
couldn't you do this more securely and
easily in your own house? I might leud
you the books, you know, and come to
you twice a week."
Uncle Ben's radiant face suddenly
clouded. "It wouldn't bo exactly the
same kind o' game to mo an' Boop," ho
said hesitatingly. "You* see thars the
idea o' the school-house, and the restfulness
and tho quiet, and tho gen'ral
air o' study. And the boys around town
ez wouldn't think nothin' o' trapson'
into my cabin if they spotted what I was
up to thar, would never dream o' hunting
mo here."
"Very well, said the master, "let it be
hero then." Observing that his companion
seemed to be struggling with an
inarucuiaie gruuiuue ami an apparently
inextricable buckskin purae in his
pocket he added quietly, "I'll set you a
lew copies to commence with," and began
to lay out a few untinislied examples
of Master Johnny Filgee's scholastic
achievements.
"After thanking you, Mr. Ford." said
Uncle JJen faintly, "ef you'll jest kinder
siftuifv, you know, whut you consider a
fair-1'
Mr. Ford turned quickly and dexterously
offered his hand to his companion
in such a manner that ho was obliged to
withdraw his own from his pocket to
grasp it in return. "You're very welcome,"
said the master, "and as I can
only permit this sortof thing gratuitously,
you'd better not let me know that
you propose giving anything even to
Rupert." lie shook Uncle lien's perplexed
haw! again j briefly explained
what he had to do, and saying that he
would no\y leave him alone a few minutes,
he took his hut and walked towards
the door.
"Then you reckon," said Uncle lien
slowly, regarding the work before him,
"that I'd better jest chuck them Dobell
f.illnco r.h<?r1
"I certainly should," responded the
master with infinite gravity.
"And Horter waltz in fresh like one o'
them children?"
"Lik? n child," nodded the master as
he left the porch*
A few moments later as he was finishin;;
his cigar in tho clearing he paused
to glance in at the school-room window.
Uncle Ben, stripped of his coat and
1 waistcoat, with his shirt sleeves rolled
upon on his powerful arum, had evidently
cast Dobe]I -and all misleading extraneous
aid aside, and with the perspiration
standing out on his foolish forehead,
and his perplexed face close to tho master's
desk, was painfully groping along
towards the light in the tottering and
devious tracks of Master Johnnie lilgee,
like a very child, iudeedl
CHAPTER II.
As the children were slowly straggling
to their places the next morning, the
master waited lor an opportunity to
speak to Rupert. That beautiful but
scarcely amiable youth, was as usual,
surrounded and impeded by a group of
his small female admirers, for whom, it
is but just to add, he had a supreme
contemnt. Possiblv it was this honithv
quality that inclined the master towards
him, and it was consequently with some
satisfaction that ho overheard fragments
of his openly disparaging comments
upon his worshipers.
"There!" to Clarinda Jones, "don't
Hop! And don't you," to Octavia Dean,
"go on breathing over my head like that.
II there's anything 1 hate it's having a
girl breathing round me. Yes, you ,
were! I felt it in mv hair. Ami you
too?you're always snoopin' and snoodg- ,
in*. Oh, yes, you want to know why
I've got an extry copy book and another
'Itithinetic, Miss Cariosity. Well, what
would you give to know? What to see
if they're pretty" (with infinite scorn at
the adjective) "No, they ain't pretty.
That's all you girls think about?what's
pretty and what's curious! Quit now!
Come! Don't ye Bee teacher lookin' at
you. Ain't you ashamed!"
lie caught the master's beckoning eye
and came forward, slightly abashed, with
a flush of irritation still on his handsome
face, and his chestnut curls slightly
rumpled. One which Octavia had covertly
accented by twisting round her forefinger,
stood up like a crest on his head.
"I've told Uncle Ben that you might
help him here after school hours," said
the master, taking him aside. 'You may
inereioru ouni your wriiing cAuruincn in
the morning and do it in the afternoon."
The boy's dark eyes sparkled. "And
if it would bo all the same to you, sir,"
he added earnestly, "you might sorter
give out in school that I was to be kept
in."
"I'm afraid that would hardly do,"
said the master much amused. "But
j why?"
Rupert's color deepened. "So ez to
keep them darned girls from foolin'
round me and followin' mo back here."
"We will attend to that," said the
master, smiling; a moment after he
added more seriously, "1 suppose your
father knows you are to receive money
for this? And he doesn't object?"
"lie I Oh, no!" returned Rupert with
a slight look of astonishment, and the
same general suggestion of patronizing
his progenitor that ho had previously
shown to his younger brother. "You
needn't mind him. In reality Filgee
pert, widower of two years' standing
had tacitly allowed the discipline of his
family to devolve upon Rupert. Remembering
this the master could only
say, "Very well," and good naturedly
dismiss the pupil to his seat and tho sul>
met from his 'wind. The last laggard
had just slipped in, the master had
glanced over the occupied benches with
his lmnd upon his warning bell, when
there was a q,uick step on the gravel, a
flutter of skirts like tiie sound of alighting
birds, and a young woman lightly
entered.
In the rounded, untouched and untroubled
freshness ofhercheekaudchin,
and the forward droop of her slender
neck, she appeared a girl of fifteen; in
her developed figure and the mature
drapery of her full skirts she seemed a
womau; in her combination of naive
recklessness and perfect understanding
of her person she was both, la spite of
a few school books that jauntily swung
from a strap in her gloved hand, she
bore no resemblance to a pupil; in her
pretty gown o{ dotted muslin with bows
of blue ribbon on the skirt and corsage,
and cluster of roses in her belt she was
as inconsistant and incongruous to the |
others as a fashion plate would have
been in the dry and dog-eared pages before
them. Yet she carried it oil' with a
demure mingling of the naivete of youth
and the aplomb of a woman, and lis she
nwept down the narrow aisle, burying a
i few small wondering heads in the over|
How of her flounces, there was no doubt
of her reception in the arch smile that
, dimpled her cheek. Dropping a half
l courtesv to the master, the only suggesf
tion of uer equality with the others, she
; took Her place nt one ol the larger desks,
t ami resting her elbow on tlid lid began
| to qnietlv removo her gloves. It was
Creasy McKinstry.
Irritated and disturbed at the girl's
. unceremonious entrance the master for
o the moment recognized Iter salutation
\ coldly, and airected to ignore her elal>
orate" appearance. The situation was
" embarrassing. He could not decline to
. receive her as she was no longer accom"
panied by her lover, nor could he plead
entire ignorance of her broken engagement;
while to point out the glaring inappropriateness
of the costume would be
f 9 ire#h interference he knew Indian
* Spring would Scarcely tolerate. He could
only accept such explanation ay she
might choose to give. He rang his boll
a8 much to avert the directed eyes of *
the children us to bring the scene to a i
climax. ^ I
She had removed her gloves and"waa I
standing up. i
"1 reckon I can go where I left off?" i
she said lazily, pointing to the books she 1
had brought with her. i
"For the present," said the master 1
dryly. I
The lirst class was called. Later, when i
his duty brought him toherside, he was t
surprised to find that she was evidently
already prepared with consecutive lea- n
sons, as if she were serenely unconscious 1:
of any doubt of her return,'and us coolly s
us if ?he had only left school the day be- li
fore. Her studies were still quite ele- c
mentary, for Cressy McKinstry had r
never been a brilliant scholar, but he li
perceived, with a cynical doubt oflts ?

usual earo u pon her present performance. t<
There was moreover u certain defiance ii
in it, as if she hud resolved to estop any a
objection to her return on the score of C
deficiencies. He was obliged, in self- J1
defense to take particular note of some o
rings she wore, and a large bracelet that ei
ostentatiously glittered on her white I
arm?which had already attracted the ii
attention of her companions, and prompt- T
ed the audible comment from Johnny fi
Filgee that it was "truly gold." With- ei
out meeting her eyes he contented himself
with severely restraining the tl
glances of the children that wan- d
dercd in her direction. She had n
never been quite popular ^ with h
the school in her previous role otfumcee, p
and only Octavia Dean and one or two p
other girls appreciated its mysterious u
fascination, while the beautiful Kupert, w
secure in his avowed predilection for t<
the middle aged wife of tho proprietor c!
of the Indian Spring hotel looked upon u
her as a precocious chit with more than 01
the usual propensity to objectionable T
"breatliiug." Nevertheless the master u
was irritatingly conscious of her pres- ai

by the remoteness of .his retreat and a n

isjied forever. si
At recess, Octavia Dean,who had drawn to
near Creasy and reuched up to pluce her g<
arui around the older girl's waist, giant- Ti
ed at her with a patronizing smile born m
of some rapid free masonry, and laugh- al
rngly retired with the others. The mas- gr
terut his desk and Creswy who had hult- vu
ed in the nisle, were left alone.
"I have had no intimation yet from re
y#ur father or mother that you were hi
coming back to school again," lie began, so
"Hut J suppose they have decided upon m
your return?" pr
An uneasy suspicion of some arrange- m
meat with her former lover had prompted er
the emphasis. flc
The voung girl looked at him with n<
languid astonishment. "I reckon paw wi
aud maw ain't no objection," she said di
with the same easy ignoring of parental sji
authority that characterized Kupert Fil- hi
gee the day before, and which seemed to hi
be a local peculiarity. ".Maw did oiler to Ik
come vcr and see vou. but 1 told her she lu
needn't bother." He
She rested her two hands behind her r?*
on the edge of n desk, and leaned against wi
it, looking down upon the toe of her ill
smart little shoe, which was describing
a small semi-circle beyond the hem of wi
her gown. Her attitude, which was op
half-defiant, halt-indolent, brought out wl
the pretty curves of her waist aud ghoul* tli
dcrs. The master noticed and became br
a trille more austere. de
"Then 1 am to understand that this is tri
ft permanent thing?" he naked coldly. an
"What's that?" said Creasy iuterroga- nc
lively. " mi
"Am I to understand that you intend dc
coming regularly to .school? repeated II
the master curtly, "or is this merely vn
nn arrangement for a few days?until wi
"0,n said Cressy comprehendingly, i"
lifting her unabashed blue eyes to his, "
"you mean that. Oh, thai'* broke oil'. or
\es," she added contemptuously, mak- j*1
ing a larger semi-circle with her foot,
"that's over?three weeks ago."
"And Setli Davis?does he intend re- Jl<
turning toe? ' ?n
"lie!" She broke into a liffht ffirlish m
laugh. "1 reckon not much! Slong's 'M
I'm hero, at least." She had just lifted ?e
herself to a sitting posture on the desk, }v
so that her little feet swuug clear of the
lloor in their saucy dance. .Suddenly Ci
she brought her heels together and ('(
alighted. "So that's all?" she asked. 'V
"Yes." H
"Kin I go now?" P1
"Yes."
She lui<l her books one on the top of ('J
the other and lingered an instant.
"Been quite well ?" she asked with in- JL'
dolent politemess. ?'
"Yes?thank you." fr
"You're lookin' right peart." ,H
She walked with a southern girl's un- 111
dulatiug languor to the door, opened it,
then charged suddenly upon Octavia r:
Dean, twirled her round in a wild waltz tl
and bore heraway; appearing a moment ai
after on the playground demurely walk- ni
ing with her arm around her compan- p;
ion's waist in an ostentatious confidence st
at onco may, exclusive uiiq exueperuwug 01
to the smaller children. s<
When school was dismissed that after- ai
noou and the master had remained to fc
show Huport Filgec Mow to prepare Un- I)
cle Ben's tasks, and had given iiis linal e<
instructions to his yoiRhiul vicegerent, o
that irascible Adonis unhurtliened him- 1}
self querulously? ti
"Is Creasy McKinstry comin' reg'lar," "
Mr. Ford ?,r u
"She is," said the master dryly. After o
a pause he asked, "Why ?" u
Kupert's curls had descended on his ti
eyebrows in heavy discontent. "It's o
mighty rough, jest ez a feller reckons ti
lies 'got quit of her and her jackass bo', b
to hev her prancin' ba?:k inter school ti
agin, ami rigged out like qz if she'd been tl
1 to a fire in a miljiner's shop." b
"You shouldn't allow your personal v
, dislikes, Rupert, to provoke you to speak b
of a fellow scholar iu that way?and a w
young lady, too," corrected the master h
dryly. a,
"The woods is full o' aich feller scholars
and sich young ladies, if yer keer to |,
go a gunning for 'em," said Hnpert with e
dark and slangy significance. "Ef I'd jj
known she was comin' back I'd " he ,,
stopped and brought his sunburnt list ?
against the seam of his trousers with a ^
boyish gesture, '^I'd hev jist " j.
'"What?" said the master sharply. c,
"I'd hev played hookev till she left u
school apain! It moutnTt hev bin so 0
lone, neither." ho added with a mvs- i,
tefrious cliucklo. 8
"That will do," said the master per- u
ernptorily. 'IFor the present you'll attend
to your duty and try to make Uncle f,
Ben bco you're something more than a i
foolish, prejudiced schoolboy, or," he a
lidded significantly, "he and 1 may both ?
repent our agreement. Let me have a ,
good account of you both when 1 re- |
turn," c
He took his hat from its peg on the d
wall, and in obedience to a suddenly \
formed resolution left the schoolroom to 1
call upon the parents of Crrssy McKins- n
try. lie was not quite certain whut he ?
should say, but, after his habit, would a
trust to the inspiration of the moment. i
At the worst he could resign a situation 1
that *ow appeared to require more tact i
and delicacy than seemed consistent i
with his position, and he waft obliged to t
confess to himself that he had lately <
suspected that his present occupation? t
the temporary expedient of a poor but i
clever young man of tweuty?was scarce- i
ly bringing him nearer a realization of i
i his daily dreams. For Mr. Jack Ford
i was a youthful pilgrim who had sought I
[ his iortune in California so lightly ]
equipped that even in the matter of kin
ind advisers ho was deficient. That
prospective fortune had already eluded
iiirn in Han Francisco, had apparently
not waited for him in Sucrainento, and
low seemed never to have been at
Indian Soring. Nevertheless, when he
vns once out of sight of the schoollouse
he lit a cigar, put his hands in
lis pockets and strode on with the
iheerfulness of that youth to which all
hings are possible.
The children had already dispersed
a mysteriously and completely as they
lad ?arrived. "Between him and the
traggling hamlet of Indian Spring the
andscape seemed to he without sound
r motion. The wooded upland or
idee on wliich the schoolhouse stood,
lalf a mile further on began to slope i
radually towards the river, on whose 1
auks seen from that distance, tho
dwii appeared to have been scattered '
"regularly or thrown together hastily,

'osmopolitan Hotel drifting into the

be intervening flat was still gushed and
irrowed by the remorseless engines of
arlier gold seekers.
Mr. Ford was in little sympathy with
us unsuccessful record of frontier eneayour?the
fortune had sought did
ot seem to lie in that direction?and
is eye glanced quickly beyond it to the
ine-created hills across tho river, whose
rimeval security was so nearand yet so
iviolable, or back again to the trail Uo
'as pursuing aloug the ridge. Tue Iat?r
prospect still retained itssemi-savoge
mracter in spite of the occasional subrban
cottages of residents, and the few
ntlyingfarms or ranches of the locality,
he grounds' of the cottages were yet
cleared of underbrush; bear and cat- (
mount still prowled around the rude (
luces of the ranches; the late alleged t
cperience of the infant Filgeo was by t
u means improbable or unprecedented.
A light breeze was seeking the heated I
it ami ri ver. and thrilling the leaves 1
ound him with the strong vitality of le
forest. The vibrating cross-lights *
id tremulous chequers of shade cast by \
le stirred foliage seemed to weave a n
natstic net around him when he walk- f
1. The quaint odors of certain wood- I:
nd herbs known to his scholars, and
ligiously kept in their desks, or left ?
ke votive oflerings ou the threshhold s
the school house, recalled all the "
rimitive simplicity and delicious wild- ti
ss of the little temple ho had left, t
ven in the mischievous glanoes of eva- v
ve squirrels and the moiMt eyes of con- ti
mplative rabbits there were faint sug- 1
slums of somo of his own truants. I:
lie woods were troubling with gentle n
emories of the independence he had ^
ways known here?oi that sweet and s
ave retreat?now so ridiculously in- li
ided. f<
Ho began to hesitato, with one of those >
vnlsions of sentiment characteristic oi a
s nature: Why should he bother him* k
If about this pirl after all? Why not 1
ake tip his mind to accept her as his o
edecessor had done? Why. was it r
icessary for him to Unci her inconsifet- a
it with his ideas of duty to his own ii
?ck and his mission to them ? Was ho C
it assuming a sense of ducorum that
is open to misconception? Theabsurty
of her, school costume and any ro- ^
lonsibility it incurred, rested not with ti
tu, but her parents. What right had ii
) to point it out to them, and above all si
>w was he to do it? lie halted irreso- w
tely at what he believed was his sober I
L*on<| thought, but which, like most si
flections that take that fluttering title. t<
is only a reaction as impulsive and g
ogical its the emotion that preceded it.
Mr. McKinstry's "snake rail" fence
sis already discernible in the lighter tl
ion intra nf t.hn tvnniifi. tint fnr frnm <1
here ho hail halted. As he stood "
ere in hesitation the pretty figure and ?
ight gown of Creasy McKinstry sua- u
nly emerged from a more secluded t<
til that intersected his own at an acute gle
a few rods ahead of film. She was
it alone, but was accompanied by a J
ule .figure whose arm alio had eviintly
just dislodged from her waist, v
e was still trying to resume his lost
mtage; sheas resolutely evaded him !
itli a certain nymph-like agility, while a
e sound of her half-laughing, halfite
protest could lie faintly heard, n
ithout being able to identify the face s
liguro of her companion at that (lis- s
nee, he could see that it was not her fi
riuer betrothed, Seth Davis.
A superior smile eroSvSed his face; lie il
) longer hesitated, but at once resumed s
s former path. For some time Cressy u
id her companion moved on quietly fi
?fore him. Then on reaching the rail t
nee they turned abruptly to the right, t
ere lost for an instant in the interven- f:
g thicket, and the next moment
ressy appeared alone crossing the mea- ?
>w in u shorter cut towards the house, ^
iving either scaled t he fence or slipped ?
irougu some uiuiuuir gun. ugr tum- j
inion I ml disappeared, whether they ,
id noticed that they wore observed he \
mid not determine. He kept steadily ,
ong the trail that followed the line of ?
nee to the lane that led directly to the a
rin building,'and pushed open the
ont gate as G'ressy s light dress van- j
lied round an angle at the rear of the c
ouse. ,
The house of the Mclvinstrys rose, or t
tther stretched, itself before him, in all ?
ic lazy ungainliness of South Western I
rchi^ecture. A collection of temporary a
lake-shifts of boards, of logs; of canvas, si
re maturely decayed, and in some in- t
ances abandoned for a newer erection, 1
r degraded to mere outhouses?it pre- c
nited with singular fraukueps the notn- \
lie and tentative disposition of its t
mnder. It had been repaired without I
eing improved; its additions had seem- r
i only to extend its primitive ugliness ]
ver a larger space. Its roof were roughf
shingled or rudely boarded and batsued,
and the rafters of some of its
lean-to's" were simply covered with r
irred canvas. As if to settle any doubt c
t the impossibility of this heterogenous t
uiss ever taking" upon itself any pic- c
iresque combination, a small building l
f corrugated iron, transported in sec- f
ous from some remoter locality, had t
een set up in its centre. The McKias- [
y ranch had long been an eye-sore to (
ic master; even that morning he had <
cen mutely wondering from what con- e
olution of that hideous chrysalis the i
rt??lif hutterilv Cri'usv liml pniertri'd. It t
H8 with a renewal of this curiosit y that j
o had just ween her tlutter hack to it t
gain. I
A yellow dog who had observed him J
esitating in doubt where lie should '
(iter, here yawned, rose from the sunght
where uo had been blinking, ap. t
roached the muster with languid polite* i
ess. and then turned toward the iron t
uilding as if showing him the way. Mr, i
'ord followed him cautiously, painfully
onscious that his hypocritical canine in- <
ruder was only availing himself of an i
pportunity to gain jngross into the 1
( use, and was leading him as a respon- j
il)le accomplice to probable exposure i
ml disgrace. His expectations was <
uickly realized; a lazily querulous I
L'miuino outcry, with the words, "Yer's i
Uat darned hound agin 1" came from an 1
djacent room, and his exposed and i
bashed companion swiftly retreated I
?ast him into the road again. Mr. Ford
mind himself alone in a plainly-furnisb- I
!(1 sitting room coimuntiug tne open ;
loor leading to another apartment at
rnteii ttiu ugure of a woman, preceuea
tastily by a thrown dish-cloth, had just
inpeared. It was Mrs. McKinstry; her 1
feeves wore rolled up over her red but
ttill shapely arms, as she Btood there
niping them on her apron, with her el)ows
advanced, and tier closed hands
ai?ed alternately In the air, there was
in odd pugilistic suggestion in tier atti,ude.
It was not lessened on tier sudleu
discovery of the muster by her recreating
backwards with her hands up
ind her elbows still well forward as if
warily retiring to an imaginary "corner."
Air. Ford at once tactfully stepped
back from the doorway. "I beg your
[lardou," he said, delicately, addressing
the opposite wall, "but I found the door
open and I followed the dog."
"That's just one of his pizenous tricks,"
respondpd 3Irs. McKinstry dolefully
within. "Only lost week he let iu ?
Chinaman, and in the nat'ral hustlin'
that follered he managed to help himself
outer the pork bar*!. There ain't no
shade o' cusseduess tlm ornarv hound
ain't up to." Yet notwithstanding this
ominous comparison she presently made
her appearance with her sleeves turuedl
down, her black woolleu dress "tidied,'
and a smile of fatigued but not unkindly
welcome and protection on her face.
Dusting a chair with her apron and
placing it before the master, she continued
maternally, "Now that you're
here, set ye right down and make vouruelf
to home. My men folks are all out
o' door, but some of em's sure to happeii
in soon for southin'; that day ain't yet
created that they don't come'huntin' up
Mammy McKinstry five minutes for this
thing or that."
The glow of a certain hard pride burn2d
through the careworn langor of her
brown cheek. "NVhat she had said was
strangely true. This raw-boned woman
before him, although scarcely middle
iged had for years occupied a. selfimposed
maternal and protecting relation,
not only to her husband and
brothers, but to the three or four men,
vho as partners, or hired hands, lived
it the ranch. An inherited and trained
lymputhy with what she called her
'boys" and her "men folk," and their
leeds had partly unsexed her. She was
i fair typo of a class not uucommou on
he Southwestern frontier; women who
vere ruder helpmeets of their rude husmuds
and brothers, who had shared
heir privations and sufferings with
mrly, masculine endurance, ruther than
eminine patience; women who had
cut their loved ones to hopeless ndvenure,
or terrible vendetta as a matter of
lourso, or with partisan fury; who had
levotedly nursed the wounded to keep '
ilive tho feud, or had received 'back
heir dead dry-eyed and revengeful.
Small wonder that Creasy McKinstry
ma developed strangciv under huh sexess
relationship. Looking at the mother
-ulbeit not without a certain respecter.
Ford found hiuiHelf contracting her 1
vith her daughter's graceful femininity,
ind wondering where in Cressy's youth- 1
ul contour, the possibility of the grim <
igure before him was even now hidden. I
"Hiram allowed to go over to the i
choolhouse and see you this mornin1,"
aid Mrs. McKinstry, after a pause; I
but I reckon ez how he had to look <
ip stock on the river. The cattle are 1
hut wild this time o' year, huntin' i
fater, and hangin' round the tulea,that i
ay men aro nigh worrited out o' their i

deo his rifle over you. Like ez not he's 1
nly got his six-shootor, aud them liar- I
isona are ineau enough to lay for him I
t long range. But," alio added, returnig
to the less important topic, "I s'posu
Iressy came all right?"
"Yes," said tlij master hopelessly.
"I reckon she looked so," continued
Ir. McKinstry, with tolerant abstraeion.
"She allowed to do herself credit
i one of them new store gownds that
lie got at Sacramento. At least that's
hat some of our men said. Late years,
ain't kept tech with the fashions myjlf."
She passed her fingers explana)rily
dowu the folds of her own coarse
own, but without regret or apology.
"Sho seems well prepared in her h's[ms,"
said the master, abandoning for
lie moment that criticasm of his pupil's
ress, which he saw was utterly futile,
hut am I to understand that she is
oming regularly to school?that she is
ow perfectly free to give her entire atmtion
to her studies?that?that?her
-engagement is broken off?" I
"Why, didn't she tell ye?" echoed Mrs.
IcKinstry in languid surpriHe.
"She certainly did," said the master
rit.li ulii'lit. ninlmrruMKiiicnt.. ?
"Ef the said so," interrupted Mrs. Mc- !
tinstry abstractedly, "shoolighter know,
nd you kin tie to what^he suvs."
"But ns I'm responsible to parentt and
ot to scholars for the discipline of my !
chool," returned the young man a little
tillly, "I thought it my duty to hear it '
rom yon."
"That's so," said Mrs. McKinstry medlatively,
"then I reckon you'ld better
ce Hiram. That ar' Seth Davis tmunigeaent
was a matter of hern ami her '
nther's, flfhd not in my line. I 'spnsu
hat Iliratn nat'rally allows to set the

"I hope you understand," said the J
naster, slightly resenting tiiu classified- ,
ion, "that my reasons for inquiring
bout the permanency of your (laugher's
attendance, was simply because it ,

"Sartain, sartain," interrupted Mrs.
ilc Kins try hurriedly, but whether from
vasion of annoying suggestion, or
veariness of tlio topic, tho master
:ould not determine. "You'ld better
peak to Iliram about it. O'ny," she
lesitated slightly, ' ez he's got now
lorter set and pinted towards your school,

hem Harrisons, ye might tech it lightV.
He oughter be along yer now. I
an't think what keeps him". Her eye
pandered agaiu with troubled preoccujation
to the corner where her busmnd's
Sharpo rifle Btood. Suddenly she
aisofi her voice as if forgetful of Mr.
ford's presence.
"0 CresHy!"
"0 maw I"
Tho response camo from tho inner
oom. The next moment Cressy appearid
at thp door with an old half-lazy delance
in her manner, which the muster
:ould not understand, except upon tiie
ivpothesis that she had beeen listening
She had already changed her elaborate
oilet for a long clinging, coarse blue
[own, that accented the graceful curves
>f her slight, pettiseatless ligure. Nodling
her head towards the master, she
laid "Howdy ?" and turned to her mothf r
vho practically ignored their personal
acquaintance. "Cressy," she said, "Dad's
rone and left his Sharpe ver, d'ye mind
.akin' it along to meet him, afore he
lasses th?? boundary corner. Ye might
ell him the teacher a yer, wantin' to see
lira."
"One moment," said tho master, as
;he young girl carelessly stepped to the
:orner and lifted the weapon. "Let mc
jike it. It's all on my way back to
ichool, and I'll meet him."
Mrs. McKinstry looked perturbed.
Dressy opened her clear eyes on the
naster with evident surprise. "No, Mr.
Ford," said Mrs. McKinstry, with her
former maternal manner. Yo'd better
not mix vourself up with these yer
loin's. \e'vo no call to do it, and
Dressy has; it's all in the family. Hut
it's outer your line, and them Harrison
whelps go to your school. Fancy the
teacher takin' weppins betwixt and between
I"
"It's fitter work for the teacher than
for one of his scholars,and a young lady
at that." said Mr. Ford gravely, as he
took tho "rifle from tho hands of tho
half-amused, half-reluctant girl. "It's
nuite safe with me and I promise I shall
deliver it into Mr. MnKinHtrv'u lunula
and none other."
"Perhaps it would be ez.likely to be
gin'rally noticed ez it would if one of us
carried it," murmured Mrs. MrJCinstry
in confidential abstraction, gazing at her
daughter sublimely unconscious of the
presence of a third party.
"You're quite right," said the master
composedly, throwing the rifle over his
shoulder and turning towards the dour.
"So I'll say good afternoon, ami try and
find your husband."
Mrs. McKinstry constrainedly plucked
at the folds of her coarse gown. "Ye'll
like a drink afore ye go," she said, in
an ill-concealed tone of relief. "I clean
forgot idy manners. Creasy fetch out
that demijohn."
"Not for me, thank you," returned
Mr. Ford smiling.
"Oh, I see?you're temperance, natrally,"
said Mrs. McKinstry with a tolerant
sigh.
"Hardly that." returned the master,
"I follow no rule, I drink sometimes?
but not to-day."
Mrs. McKinetry'sdark face contracted,
"Don't you see, Maw," struck in Creasy
I quickly. "Teacher driuks sometimes,
but he don't use whisky. That's all."
Iler mother's face relaxed. Cressy
slipped out of the door before the master,
and preceded him to the gate. When
she had reached it she turned and looked
iuto his face.
"What <lid Maw say to yer about
seeiu' me just now?"
"I don't understand you."
"To your seeiu' me and Joo Masters
on the trail?"
".She said nothing."
"Humph," said Dressy meditatively,
"What was it you told her about it?"
"Nothing."
"Then you didn't seo us?"
"I saw*you with some one?I don't
know whom."
"And you didn't tell Maw?"
"I did not. It was none of my busi-1
ness."
He instantly saw the utter inconsistency
of this speech in connection with
tbe reason he believed he bad in eomiug.
Hut it was too late to recall it, and she
was looking at him with a bright but
singular expression.
"That .loo Masters is the conceitedest
fellow goiu'. I told him you could see
his foolishness."
"Ah, indeed." 4
Mr. Ford pushed open the gate. As
the k'irl still lingered he was obliged to
hold it a moment before passing through.
"Maw couldn't quite hitch on to your
not drinkin'. She reckons you're like
everybody else about yer. That's where
she slips up on you. And everybody
else, I kalkilate."
"I suppose she's somewhat anxious
about your father, and I daresay is expectingjno
to hurry," returned the master
pointedly.
Oh, dad's all right," said Gressy mischievouslv.
"You'll come across him
over in the clearing. lint you're looking
right purty with that gun. It kinder
seta you oil*. You oughter wear one."
Themastersmiled slightly, said "Good
bye," and took loave of the girl, but not
:>f Ijcr eves, which wcro still following
liim. I'von when he had reached the
i?nd of the lane and glauccd back at the
rambling dwelling she yaa atill loaning
:>n the gate with one foot on the lower
rail and her chin cupped in the hallow
jf her hand. She mado a slight gesture,
not clearly intelligible at the distanco;
it might have been a mischievous imitation
of the way ho had thrown his gun
>ver his shoulder, it might haraboon a
ivafted kins.
The master, however, continued his
ivay in no verv eelf-satiatled mood. Although
he dicf not regret having taken
.he placo of Crrssy as the purveyor of
ethal weapons between the belligerant
parties, he knew he was tacitly (ringing
in the feud between people for
vhom he cared little or nothing. It was
rue that the Harrisons sent their chillren
to his school, and that in the
lerc'c partisanship of* the locality this
ample courtesy was open to misconstruction.
But he was ^ more
inetisily conscious that his mission,
u* far as .Mrs. McKinstry was concerned,
was a miserable failure. The
itrange relations of the mother and
laughter perhaps explained much of
lie girl's conduct, but it offered no hope
>f future amelioration. Would the
ather, "wonted by stock" and boundary
quarrels?a man in the habit of cutting
iordiun knots with a bowie knife?provo
nore reasonable ? Was there any nearer
sympathy between father and daughter?
Hut she- had said ho would muet McKinstry
in the clearing; she was right,
or hero ho was coming forward in a
JMIOJ)!

A Warning.
Tho modes of death's approach are
various, and statistics show conclusively
lhat more persons die from diseases of

It is probable that everyone, without exception,
receives vast numbers of Tubercle
Germs into the system and where
these germs fall unon suitable soil they
itartinto life and develop, at first slowly

in the throat and if allowed to continue
their ravages they extend to the
lungs producing Consumption and to
the nead, causing Catarrh. Now all this
is dangerous and if allowed to proceed
will in time cause death. At the ousel
