Hnptlste worked nil the next Monday on the boom, llcrccly and unpnrnc of himself or his men. Ilitnry. little puzzled by the little mnn's hullen muti ncr townrd himself, attributed It to Ids personal distress nt whnt had hap pened In Ste. Murie. He did not know that nnptlste wh uware of Ids pres ence there, untl felt happy In the con sciousness that he hail done him home service. Nothing would Imvu pleased him better tlimi to have seen his suit With Murie Dupont successful. Tho strencthenlnc of the boom whs finished. The wooden structure hnd been Immensely fortified with Rreut trunks. IhsJumI ,,,! ne,j tDRotlier, restliiR In concrete which had been molded Into the crevices of the rocks on Wther side of the cataract. Hilary examined mid approved of the work. It seemed to remove all possibility of ihmcer. Everything depended on the first minute lifter the Jam wns broken. If the torrent could he carried olT throimh the Hluleo Rutcw, In the mnln, the Iocs would find mi easy passive over the dnin Into tho lake. Hut netnully the re enforced boom seemed to resist -the torrent without any likelihood of brcnkiiRc. The charge wai to be exploded nt three In the afternoon. Thut duy Hil ary wns kept busy In his offlce, going over the pay roll In preparation for the October chnuges. (lungs of men hnd been returning from the south shore, and ho had signed on u number. He was nwnre that some of lirous seau's ngents hnd been at work at tempting to dissuade them; however, the men wanted work, mid even Itroussenu could not hire them and keep them Idle upon tils skeleton com pany at Ste. Murie. Hilary discov ered that the Ste. Marie enterprise ex isted only upon that of St. Itonifucc, and, like the pnrnsllle plant, withered when its prop and sustenance wns withdrawn. It was two o'clock by his watch when he pushed his papers aside and strolled up the path thut led through the woods toward the gorge. Hilary had left St. lloulfiice behind lilm und wns iipprimchlng the gorge, from which he could hear the shouts of the gang innkhig prcp'irntlons for the discharge, when he saw Madeleine Rosny riding along the road toward him. She bad evidently been to the Ste. Mnrle territory, and, he suspected, on a visit to Itroussenu. The path wus narrow, with the descending bunk of the wooded surge on one liiind und a steep, shelving nscent, overgrown with young spruce and pine, upon the other. Hilary drew to one side, to give the girl passage, lie was watching the trotting horse, now swiftly Hearing li t nt. ntiil wondering whether he ought to mnke any sign of recognition, when he was almost thrown from his feet by n vibration of the ground, followed by a dull roar Unit grew Into an In fernal cre.seenilo und rolled uwuy un derground In u prolonged reverbera tion. The charge had been exploded. Hilary miw the horse rear, curvet, mid then, maddened with fear, leap wldly forward. An Instant later It bi enme clear thut It wns no longer un der control. The terrified iinluial bolt ed tit full speed along the road to ward him, while the girl plucklly kept her seat und pulled with ull her mlKlit. but iiiiiivallliiKly. on curb mid snaille. She wus n practiced horsewoman, for none other could have kept her (.eat when the hoie went reurlu backward; hut no amount of skill could iivull unless the beast were pot under control before the downhill lido the village was renclied. There was n gate across tho track, which Hilary bed dosed. Flung oer this. It would lie a miracle If the girl escaped with her life. Hilary made his decision In an In stant, made It with the ro.tr of the released torrent In his ears, and tho thunder of the breaking Jam. the crash or logs hurled free, and rclioiindliiK from and buffeting one another. He planted himself directly In tho course of the maddened unlmiil, whoso hoofs churned up u shower of stones. "Keep your seat!" he shouted to the girl. For one Instant ho saw her. pa e, with frightened eyes, hut firm In the saddle, still pullliiK P'IS' tl"' """ while the open im-ilh, distorted by tho bit iiiidihaln that pressed tho uu ilcrllp, foamed. ...id Hie while of ' eyes gleamed wickedly beneath the cars, tint with the head. Then 1 llnry . saw tho horse rear and thu tlunl hooM I uprise. Then, somehow, he 'u'lglit the reins oaped for the shelvlnR bunk, and missed. Ho lost his foothold, but he cliim, 1 , l(, ,,.Mm. wl.ll.. the horse plunged ,..! reiired. each Jerk ..ost tenrlm, hiH arms fro... their soeKets Now was swept iiBiUii-t tin l' l( ,.,, iimt merl.ung lie road. V.JUBI.S, now the precipice wns iin.br t He Caught the Relnt and Leaped for the Shelving Bank, and Mlaaed. iiliii, and the gorge nctow, wlifcrt! till ing crackled and thundered us they battered their way down the river. He suw the girl clinging to the saddle, then to tho beast's mnne; he tried to reach tier with Ids arms, hut he could not stop the bolting animal; and then he wns tiling free, nnd tho riderless horse went gnllnplng down the road townrd St. Itonlfncc. lie must have been stunned for a few moments, for when he opened Mb eye a he found himself lying upon a ledge v little distance from the top of the steep bank. On the same ledge was Madeleine Rosny clinging to u swaying sapling that overhung the river, and trying to rise. Hilary scrambled to his feet, to find that. In spite of painful bruises, he wns uninjured. He gae Madeleine Ids hands und pulled her out of the branches; nnd they stood looking at ench other. "Your horse bolted," explnlned Hilar'- "1 am sorry you did not know about the dynamiting." At his words u look of fear came upon her fine; and then It hardened und her gray eyes Unshed angrily. "You hnve saved my life!" she cried. "You have saved me, nnd I wish you were a thousand miles away. I wish I hud never seen you I" "There Is no need to let thut trouble you, Miulemolselle Rosny," answered Hilary, slung Into scorn by her In griititude. "There Is enough room In this country for both of us. If you will let me help you up the hunk, no doubt you can find your way home. I assure you that I have no Intention of Intruding on yon further." Ills scorn seemed to heat down her nnger. She looked nt Mm for tho first time without hatred. "Why have jou come Inio my life? Why do you begin to iiluy n part in It?" she whispered, ns If In terror. "Suppose you let me usslst you up the hunk, Mndeinolsi'lle, before I mi swer your qur-stlon. We run hardly discuss Hint matter here," snld Hilary- She seemed to recover her self-possession. "There Is no need to nnswer me." she replied scornfully. Never theless she permitted Mm to brush the dust from her skirt nnd to give her his hand. They scrambled up the side of the gorge und stood breathless upon the road again. Far nwiiy Hilary heard the crash of the logs, Hung over the dam mid shooting townrd the boom. Madeleine Rosny turned nnd faced llllury. "Well, monsieur?" she de uiunded. "It Is because I want us to bo friends," he said. And he took thu gill's hand frankly In his. She let It He there for a moment, guxlug at him In astonishment mid puzzlement. Then, to Hilary's sur prise, he miw the look of fear eomo Into her eyes again. "It Is too late." she whispered. "Surely not. mademoiselle. We have misunderstood each other, perhaps, but" "I tell you It Is ton late. Oh, why did you not come to me and say this before?' she cried, und suddenly broku Into unrestruliiable sobbing. "I thought you were grasping nnd wicked, mid 1 "hated you. 1 wished you ell. l.oolc to your boom' No, let me go, mon sieur! hook to jour boom!" And, snatching her hand away, she run. still sobbing wildly, down the road, leaving Hilary staring after her In uncomfortable dismay. He could not understand her menu lug, l hough her last words still rung In his ears. Ho watched her as she lied through the trees like n hunted deer. Slu' .is out of his sight around the bend of the road utmost In nn In stmii. her shoulders heaving nnd her "hands outstretched l' Mind panic be (ore her. Hilary heard H'".'

M Service 1 I T"HERE is undoubtedly no public service that touches directly I ' ' so many individuals and enters so completely into the social and I m commercial life of the people as does telephone service More busi- I ' II; ness is transacted over the telephone than there is through face to I ' : H face conversationt. More social activities are planned, more invita- I j U ' tionssent, more engagements made or cancelled by telephone than I )it by any other means. I ' ' This places a tremendous responsibility upon those charged with the ; duty of rendering telephone service. Any failure of the service would ; fj have a disastrous effect upon both the business and social relations of j a community. A general cessation of the service would cause nation- ' j i wide confusion. .n ;I Ml Telephone employees realize their responsibility and recognize their ; obligation. It is this loyalty to duty that makes it possible for the ij Telephone Company to render service even under the most difficult i conditions. Quite generally there are at this time inadequate facilities causing j 1 congestion and confusion, a condition from which there can be no ? I immediate relief. Sometimes the elements rage in a mad furj but j I men and women brave the storms that the public may be served. f. i Occasionally a scourge of sickness depletes the ranks, adding to the r- I burden of those who escape, but who perform their more difficult r j 1 tasks with smiling determination to continue the service. I P 1 ' ft I With such a spirit in the telephone organization, the service will at " mji I all times be the best that human effort can produce, in the face of m I I whatever adverse circumstances may prevail.

Then, while he still looked after Madeleine, there camo a sound louder than nny he hnd heard, rivaling that of the ex plosion Itiolf, ns if'Thor's hammer had clunged upon a leaden anvil, ns If the earth were rent In twuln liken stitched garment. There as iio need to wonder what hnd occurred. Hilary began running down the road His eyes were fixed nheud where ttiA.log boom lny rent like a straw pipe, nnd the great burden ot logs which tne Rocky river had borne so long was plunging down the cata ract. He ran on, breathless, and the stu pendous spectacle went on before his eyes. A mighty barrier, piled up for n few moments against the rocks that spanned the cataract, gave promise of arresting Hie debacle. Ilchlnd It tho logs spun und twisted. All the freight of the river, far back from the hills, was sweeping onward, an Irresistible nrmy, forging pnst stone and boulder, tossing, upheaving, mounting the dam, whose cement w;tll was now sub merged, swtpt by the milk-white tor rent to where had been the boom. The clashing of the logs ngainst Hint wood en wall wns like battering rums agulnst n city wnll. Then swiftly, as Hilary still run, he saw thu picture dissolve. The wull of logs went down luto Hie cutnract, und a column of spray rose higher time Hie llume, Mured funnel wise und caught the sunlight Into prls uiuticiilly handed hues like u rainbow, and went ilnwn. Over the cataract swept the logs, un impeded now. Thu river hnd burst Its chains und spewed Its burdens Into the (Julf. Fanlike, the lumber began to spread and stain the gray St. Lawrence surface wllli mottled brown. Hilary reached thu waste place be side the mill. Tint workmen stood there, Impotently watching the rulu of their toll. It was tho wreck of every thing. There could be no hopn of build ing up tho boom In the face of that torrent of wnter until the river was low enough for the closing of the ihiin gates to keep It pent back. And long I before thut time the entire lumber loud of Rocky river would be in the Gulf. Hilary looked on In embittered silence. He might as well give up now nnd go home, liroiisscnu mid Nature lind united to thwart Mm. The workmen had been Joined by the mill hands, who had left their work und hurried down to the boom when the mtiistiophe occurred. They seemed all to have lost their heads. They were chaiterlng excitedly; llll ury could not undersrmid u word, but Council started mid looked about fa Int. l.IKe many uneducated men, he had the faculty ot getting en rapport with men of other speech, 'evidently he had heard something said that puz zled and nliiruicd him. "What I It?" Hilary asked. "Where's Jean Hnptlste?" said I.nfe. "I don't know. He set off the dyna mite, r.nd that ended his Job. Why?" "NothliiK." said I.afe. still glancing about lilm. Hilary looked at him curiously, but mi Id no more. Ho begun to push his way through the crowd In tho direc tion of the olllce. He hnd not Invited I.nfe to iiccoinpauy him, hut I.afe wns nt his elbow when he went In, followed him innlde tho room, mid took a chair beside llhu.

I.nfe scratched his chin, 'but snld nothing to this. "You see," said Hilary, "according to my reckoning we shall have about for ty thousand dollars on hand about September first. Thut will last us till ijlirlstmus. On the first of the yenr we shnll be up ngnlnst It. Wo need another sixty thousand to carry us through tho winter, till navigation opens mid wc cull sell our cutting. No bunk's going to lend us anything with our record." "We can ship six thousand cords by December first," snld I.afe. "Thirty-five thousand dollurs per haps less." "We could get more out of those river bottoms,'' suggested I.afe. "And shut down in Hie middle nt Mnrch." "As far us I cuii see." Lafe blurted out, "you'll be about ten thousand shy, Mr. Askew, assuming things go fairly well. That's why I caine here. You see. It's like this. I've got neitrly eight thousand In the First National bank nt Shoebunport, Mass. Clarice Mrs. Council, that Is wouldn't let me buy her u house on the Installment plan ns I wanted to. She said us I'd never know when we'd need the money, und If I couldn't pay up on time they'd get it away from us somehow, no matter whnt the contract said. It seemed mighty unreasonable to me, Mr. As kew, but I'm glad now I sure mil glad." "I.nfe," snld Hilary, "are you crazy enough to suppose I'm going to tuke the money that you mid Mrs. Council have been saving up for u home, und put It Into this bankrupt concern?" "Oh. shucks!" said I.afe. "Why Hint nln't nothing. I guess 1 know n good thing when I see one. I'm loan ing It to you, Mr. Askew, at any rate you want to pay me." "I.nfe. youre u fool,' snld Hilary, trying to keep Ids voice steady: "I'm tempted. Rut I'm not going to tnko It." "Then I guess I'll take the next bnnt home!" shouted I.nfe. "I uln't going to woik for a busted concern whnt's going to leave me stranded up here In midwinter, not dr-iwlng a cent, nnd Clarice my wife and the kids In Shoehtiryport. No. sir! You tnko that or I'll leave. It uln't so crnzy as you think. It'll glvo me an Interest In getting the last ounce out of the men nnd I guess Clarice will ap prove. And when the concern's on Its own legs, you why. you can raise my w ages." 'Conuell, you're it trump." said Hil ary. "I'll take It. Yes, I'll take It. be cause I know now that I tun going to succeed. We can't fall, l.nfi. when we're ns much In enrnest as we nro. Oooil Lord, what n despondent fool I've neon!" "Same here." snld I.nfe. "I was Just hopeless, till you made me sec straight." "Why, It wus you made mo sea straight." said Illlnry. "Now. Con uell, we'll push things hard from this very minute. We'll start In cutting along the river, and we'll Ilout the logs right down st rcmn to tho mill, mid we'll keep Dupont and his schooner coming and going till navigation closes, even If we make Riviere Roeheiise k.i -w ,re iis tyir hank jiccount, wit I looking Jiist now.
