! rrini de plantation f er ole
marse," the boy ! explained. The host
of the tavern heard and came down to
give his welcome, for any Dale, no
matter what his garb, could always
have the best in that tavern. More
than that, a bewigged solicitor, learn
ing his name, presented himself with
the cheerful news that he had quite a
little sum of money that had been con
fided to his keeping by Colonel Dale
for , his nephew, Erskine. A strange
deference seemed to be paid him by
everybody,' which was a grateful
change from the suspicion he had left
among his pioneer friends. ' The little
tavern was thronged and . the ? air
charged with the spirit of war. Indeed,
nothing else was talked. My Lord Don
more had come to a sad and unbe
moaned end. He had stayed afar from
the battlefield of Point Pleasant : and
had left stalwart General Lewis to
fight Cornstalk and his braves alone.
Later My Lady Dunmore and her
sprightly daughters took refuge on a
man-of-war whither my lord soon fol
lowed them. His fleet ravaged the
banks of the rivers and committed
every outrage. His marines set fire to
Norfolk, which, was In ashes when he
'weighed anchor and sailed. away to
more depredations. When hej In
trenched himself on Gwynn's island,
.that same stalwart Lewis opened a
heavy cannonade on fleet and island,
and sent a :ballt through" the indignant
nobleman's flagship. Next day he saw
a force making for the island in boats,
and my lord spread' all sail ; and so
back to merry England, and to Vir
ginia no more. Meanwhile, Mr. Wash
ington had reached Boston and started
? bis duties under the Cambridge elm.
Several times during the talk Erskine
had '.heard - mentioned the name of
Dane Grey. Young Grey had ; been
with Dunmore and not with Lewis at
Point Pleasant, and had been conspicu
ous at the palace through much of the
succeeding turmoil the hint being his
devotion to one of the' daughters, since
he, was now an, unquestioned loyalist.
' Next' morning Erskine rode forth
along a sandy ' road, amidst the sing
ing of birds and through a forest of
tiny upshooting leaves, for Red Oaks
on the James. He had forsworn Colo
nel Dale to secrecy as to the note he
had left behind giving his birthright
to his little cousin, Barbara, and he
knew the confidence would be kept in
violate. At the boat landing he
hitched his horse to the low-swung
branch of an oak and took the path
through tangled rose bushes and un
dergrowth along the bank of the river,
halting where It would give him forth
on the great, broad, grassy way that
led to the house among the oaks. There
was the sundial that had marked every
sunny hour since he had been away.
For a . moment ' hi stood there, and
when he stepped into the open he
shrank back hastily a girl was com
, Ing through the opening of boxwood
from the house coming slowly, bare
headed, her hands clasped behind her.
her eyes downward. His heart throbbed
as he waited, throbbed the more when
his ears caught even the soft tread of
her little feet,-and seemed to stop
when she paused fat the sundial, and
as before searched the river with her
eyes. And as before the song of negro
oarsmen came over the, .yellow flood,
growing stronger as they neared. Soon
the girt fluttered a handkerchief and
from the single passenger in the stern
came an, answering flutter of white
and a glad cry. 'At the bend of the
. river the y boat disappeared from
Erskine's sight under the bank, and he
watched the girl. How she had grown I
Her slim figure had rounded and shot
upward, - and :i her-white - gown had
dropped to her dainty ankles. Now
her face was flushed and her eye
flashed with excitement it was no
mere kinsman In that boat, and the
boy's heart began to throb again
throb fiercely and with racking emo
tions that he had never known before.
A fiery looking youth sprang up the
landing-steps, bowed gallantly over the
girl's hand, and the two turned up the
path, the girl rosy with smiles and
the youth pending over her with a
most protecting and tender air. It
was Dane Grey, and the heart of the
watcher turned mortal sick.
A long time Erskine sat motionless,
wondering what ailed him. He had
never liked nor trusted Grey; be be
lieved he would have trouble with him
some day, but he had other -enemies
and he did not feel toward them as he
did toward this dandy mincing up that
beautiful broad path. With a little
grunt he turned back along the path.
Firefly whinnied to him and nipped at
him with playful restlessness as
though eager to be on his way to the
barn, and he jtood awhile with one
arm across his saddle. Once he reached
upward to untie the reins, and with
another grunt strode back and went
rapidly up the path. Grey and Barbara
uau aisappearea, out a tail youtn wno ,

him coming and row?, bewildered, but I
not for long. Each recognized the other j,
swiftly, and nngh came with stiff
courtesy forward. Erskine smiled:
Ytn " Ion"t know me?" Hugh
bowf'd: '
"Quite weJL" The woodsman drew
himself up with quick breath paling
without, flaming within but "before he
could speak there was a quick step
and an astonished cry within the hall
and Harry sprang out.
"Erskine I Erskine ! he -shouted,
and he leaped down the steps with
both .hands outstretched. "You here !
You you old Indian how did you get
here?" He caught Erskine by both
hands and then fell to shaking him by
the shoulders. "Where's your horse?"
And then he noticed the boy's pale
and embarrassed face and , his eyes '
shifting to Hugh, who stood, still cold, i
still courteous, and he checked some
hot outburst at his . lips,
"I'm glad you've come, and'T'm glad
you've come right now where's your
horse?" ' - I
"I left him hitched at the landing," j
Erskine had to answer, and Harry
looked puzzled: -
"The landing! Why, what" He
wheeled and shouted to a darky :
"Put Master Erskine's horse In the ;
barn and feed him." And he led Ers
kine 'within to the same room where
he had slept before, and poured out
some water in a bowl.
"Take your time, he said, and he
went back to the porch. Erskine could
hear and see him through the latticed
"Hugh," said the lad in a low, cold
voice, T am host here, and if you don't
like this you can take that path."
"You are right," was the answer;
"but you wait until Uncle Harry gets
borne." '
The matter was quite plain to Ers
kine within. The presence of Dane
Grey made it plain, and as Erskine
dipped both hands Into the cold water
he made up his mind to an under
standing, with that young gentleman
that would be complete and final. And
so he was ready when he and Harry
were on.-the porch again and Bar

bushes and came slowly up the path.
Harry looked worried, but Erskine sat
still, with a faint smile at his mouth
"and In his eyes. Barbara saw him
first and she did not rush forward.
Instead, she stopped, with wide eyes,
a stifled cry, and lifting one hand to
ward her heart. Grey saw too, flushed
rather painfully, and Calmed" himself.
Erskine had sprung down the steps.
"Why,; have I changed so much?" he
cried. "Hugh didn't seem to know me,
either." His voice was gay, friendly,
even affectionate, but his "eyes danced
, with strange lights that puzzled the
girl. f
"Of course I knew you, ; she fal

kine seemed not to notice. "You took
me by surprise and you havfi changed

significance of this too seemed to pass
Erskine by, for he bent over Barbara's
hand and kissed It.

said gallantly, and then he bowed to

Legitimate Trade Is Seriously Af
fected by Rush of Cars Over
the Border.
American Consul John W. Dye at
Juarez, Mexico, has found what be
comes of many of the automobiles
stolen every month. They go across
the International bridge into Mexico
in such numbers that the legitimate
automobile trade of Mexico has be
come seriously affected.
According to Mr. Dye, thousands
of stolen automobiles are steadily
pouring across the boundary. For the
most part they come from California
and states bordering on the Rio
Grande, but many are known to have
come from as far away as Chicago.
The cars are sold in Mexico for
about half their value. Many are
stripped of pieces of any value and
abandoned, while others are taken Into
secret hiding .places and new bodies
placed on old chassis, or otherwise
changed so as - to be unrecognizable.
The consul cites one case of where a
Mexican offered a boy $25 for a "good
car." The boy got the car, but was
caught before he could deliver it.
Officials are now taking the num
ber of every car crossing the bridge.

That a wounded deer will fight was
demonstrated to Albert Stetzer of Tan
nersville, Pa., when a good sized buck
caught sight of him and declared war
while the hunter was out alone. Stetzer
shot the animal in a shoulder, but it
failed to stop or even turn from Its
The second bullet struck the deer
in the head and the wounded animal,
coming at full speed, was stopped so
suddenly that It turned a complet
, somersault and landed on one side, but
scrambled to its feet and renewed its
efforts to fight thean. Stetzer fired
a tmra snot tnat sttucb tne aeer in a
hip, but failed to halt it, and a fourth
shot In the head merely put It out of
the combat temporarily. -
-Disregarding Its many wounds the
plucky buck made a number of at
tempts to rise and renew the attack,
but Stetzer used his hunting knife to
bring its struggles to an end.

Oceans' Levels Changed.
It Is the belief of scientists that.
during the glacial period, when ; the
land was covered with huge, coats of
ice, the level of the ocean was from
150 to 200 feet lower than Its normal
level, according te Dr. T. W. Yaughan
of the United States geological survey.
This belief is based upon the theory
that what goes up must -come down,
and scientists are able to account for
the presence of Ice on the land only
on the supposition that it came from
the sea.
Proof of this Is found In coral reefs
In all parts of the world. Their post
tton' Indicates that the building was
commenced In the shallow waters of
the then coast line, only to have' the
waters jrlse. The little animals" which
create the reefs kept on building
toward the new level. Many of the
reefs, it has been observed, have been
built on submarine shelves, and these
are invariably found on coasts which
show signs of having once been sub
merged. , ..
Always the Extra Woman.
' It Is true that for every even 100
births of girl infants there are 105
boys born,' but of those belonging to
both sexes remaining alive at the .end
of the firsT year, there are just 100
girls alive to 93 boys.
Moreover, the , ratio of survival in
creases slightly in favor of the girls
throughout life. Therefore at aU age
periods there is a more or less decided
excess of females over males. .
