r-t-t-t-t MM "Forest Pre- serve B.98" Or MYRTLE LEE I. (CoprricM. lilt, br the vv.si.rn N ptptr Union.) "A month nt Ferodnle will fix you up Krnndly," spoke Mr. Itobert tlnr rl to his youug law partner, Leslie Trnvcr. "I hi utilised to you," Mild the lilt tf-r, "but It won't do." "Why. there are only three of my five daughters left nt home now," oh served Mr. Harris with n Joculnr mlle. "Hound to give me a dig on my al leged evnslon of the sender sext" re sponded Travers. "All that Is n Action, and besides 1 know of no brighter. kinder friends than you and yonr fam ily, but my physician has mapped out a six months' course for me, has dis covered nn Ideal environment and shall hate to net under his direction.' "Well, get cured; that Is all I wnnt.' spoke Mr. Harris kindly. lie thought the world of his young partner, who hail been his student mid assistant for five years ami hail then brilliantly won the mot Important legal battle of the year. It had been at a great cost, however. Travcrs had always been a clne student and he had thrown his full natural lntentnes Into the great eae. The reaction had come, his nerves had broken down, and tn re build them he must entirely abandon woik. There was hopeful anticipation In his face ns he took n train for a town two hundred miles from the city, after shipping thither trunks nnd n va riety of certain appurtenances requi site for n long bachelor experience. He put up nt the hotel at Ilrompton rn-l the next morning was called on by n town functionary. "I have my Instructions tn lnnll you In your position ns warden of the foret preserve," said the official. "Your duties will not be very exciting, al though your environment will be primi tive." In the official's automobile Travers was drlien along n country roail to the edge of a stretch of timber cover ing several hundred acres. At one cor ner was n large sign reading: "Koret Preserve It. PS." Here there was n small hut composed of rough boards, from the roof of which protruded nn ordinary stove pipe. "Not n very Inviting bungalow," smiled the official. "But precisely what I expected and want." declared Travers. "If you will arrange to have what I have had shipped from the city sent down here I will Install myself forthwith. The two rooms In this little shelter house will precisely snlt my requirements. I can get provisions nt the settlement, and I am sure I shall enjoy the rough and ready life." The novelty of his environment had n salutary effect upon Travers. Ills duty comprised a patrol of the reserve several times n day, n final one at night, and the direction of two laborers who trimmed the trees and cut down the dead ones. It was towanl tho end of his first month's sojourn that Travers met with n series of Incidents which ultimately changed the entire trend of his career. Twice he had seen n bent form, that of nn old man, about the center of the timber, who had mysteriously disap peared before he could come upon him, and one night n girlish figure llltted by him like the wind. Two evenings later, while he was seated reading In hit little hut there came a tap nt the win dow. Traiert opened It tn confront a young girl of nbout seventeen, deeply ngltnted. "Oh, sir I" she quavered. "If you know anything about sickness or have any medicine with you. I beg of you to come with me without delay." "What Is the trouble, mUsJ" ques tinned Travers, nttrncted and Interest ed by the plcndlng face und marked distress exhibited. "It is my father; I fear he will die. Oh, sir, come! come! It Is not far." Travers snatched up n cae of his own medicine and hurried outside. He was puzzled nt hit girl guide led him Into the very depths of the reserve. As she came to a ravine choked up with fallen trees sli- took his hand, led him through n maze he had never pone trjteil and Into n shelter, secret and half comfortable, where lay an old man on n bed of dried grass, Travers worked over the old man un til ho had quite revived him. lie won dered how long these refugees had been thus In hiding and questioned hit right to allow them on tho reserve. The next day, however, be learned their sad story, and thenceforward was their friend nnd companion. Darius West had u claim against a valuable piece of property, had quar reled with other contestants. And In the heat of a Just battle had severely Injured one of them. They had taken advantage of this to get out a vvarrunt for his arrest. He had hurried to hid ing, for once In their handt be feared they would persecutu him to the limit. Looking Into those nffulrs as an ex pert luwyer, Leslie Travers took up the case. Within a month he had Mr. West nnd Ids daughter, Mercedu, under safe protection and began Ihu prosecution against Ids enemies. There never was a more grutoful man than Darius West when he was awarded the fortuno rightfully his own. There was never a more appreciative being than Mercvda, and never u hap pier bride, when the young lawyer re turned to friends and business with charming life purtner.
