The Gaily Feud.

Newspaper Syndicate.)

' It one would remain an inhabitant of
the Gap in peace and security with
one's neighbors.
He had bean home from Rudemeir
I College about four days. The family
had given him to understand that they
t . expected all things of him and especially
that be should run for representative
the next autumn. There
had been a Farraday in the State Legislature
from the Gap section ever
ainco West Virginia had walkod her
^ own path in statehood. Since the
death of Bruce's father fifteen years
1 before, the Gaily family had controlled
the seat. Bart Gaily had gone up
for two terms and Wallace had fol
l\ lowed in his footsteps. Small wonder
that every member of the Farraday |
family had waited with bated breath.!
- so to speak, and postponed hopes of]
the day of Bruce's return as head of j
' the family.
He rode down the mountain road to
the little village after mail, loving
every foot of the way. It had been
1 years since he had walked that road
to school. When lie came to the
old familiar crossroads, with Its
! cairn of rock supporting an old sign
J post, he drew rein.
The whole valley lay below him
with the wondrous beauty of spring)
time encircling It, with the lifting
crests of the mountains veiled in
oarly morning mists. Back in the
woods, a bird called to its nesting
mate. Bruco glanced up the other
, road. Many a time he bad loitered
there waiting for Nance Gaily to S
ii come along on her way to school. ''
li What had they cared for feuds in '
: those days! She was tj. he barely s
in nesting now in his saddle, while p

way home from school, because she 11
haii walked with her cousin Wallace c
Instead of hint. There had been a s
fight and Wallace, a strapping, black- o
I "khrowed youth of 13, had beaten him h
^eforo her eyes, lie had risen from t
1 Ihe road, dirty and bleeding, and had
/hrown out his challenge to the full
ture. Oddly enough, now, Wallace v
1 / was his opponent in politics. ?
The sound of horses hoofs cantering
I along the old timber road, roused s
p liini from reverie It was Nance. She
rode her sorrel mare like a boy, her P
short curls .ying In the morning \
| breeze. As she rode, she was sing- >'
ing Dixie at the top of her lungs, un"
til she caught sight of the silent '1
horseman, and stopped short. a
Jlruco raised his cap in neighborly l|
greeting, noting approvingly the vivid t
beauty of her young face and spark- b
ing eyes. n
"Good morning Miss Nance," he t
said. "It seems like old limes to be
"Gordness," said Dick, "the man is w
getting to an interesting place in Itis y<
career, Margie. I can t-11 hi that
when a man falls in love with a worn- w
Ian such as he has described, it is onco ai
and for all, Margie." i ci
Now, look here, Dick," I said, j
i "You cannot sit here and tell ine that |l:
' no matter how many affairs a man
has in his life he holds to one (r
woman "
"In liis I cart, my dear, in his heart.
. g^
1 think I have told you before that the tc
woman in a man's heart and the worn- sc
an in bis arms are very apt to be two w
different people." j0

\ that he was or had ever been In love [ \
j) with his wife?" (c
If . "My dear girl, I can't even define

alone tell when and where and to jj
j? whom it eontes ar-1 goes. It Is the (i,.
I most intangible as well as the most ]1(

iwere to a ': all the men ant} women
you know to tell you their definitions gr
of love, you would have as many an- Wi

"Love is one of the things you y,
5 can't put into words, my ddhr. You W1
can always tell, however, if you are in ca

I "Yes, my dear, t think the man has
a kind of selfish love for the woman. ~
She made him comfortable, something
no one had ever tried to do be;

alt back and be entertained, to know

both ways at once," said sister Belle,
when the campaign was in full swing,
"but, goodness, Bruce, it does seem
splendid to have a Farraday fighting
lor his own again. If you let that
snake Wallace Gaily win, I'll never
speak to you again. Xance is holding '
her head so high, her neck's stiff. I
heard it said down in the village
that sho'd promised Wallace she'd
marry him, if he beat you election
Bruce looked at her oddly.
"X don't see what she's got against
me," he said.
Belle laughed, shortly."
"You don't? Well, you're a Farraday
for one thing, and for another
you called her redhead, and the name
stuck to her. She'll never forgive you
for either one."
"You know it seems so queer,"
Bruce said, "to come hack here and
find all these foolish backwords notions
holding the people like laws.
Of course, I want to win the election,
hut [ haven't anything special against
Wallace, except that he did me up j
once in a boy fight, and I woultf like'
a few fair rounds with him sometime
on the quiet."
"You'll never beat him by fair
means," Belle returned. "There are
only 234 votes in the section, and
nearly every able-bodied man in the
lot depends on work through the winter
up in the Gaily lumber camps. If
they don't vote for a Gaily, they lose
their chance." ' a

fciice between Bruce and Matt Craw- cford.
Briefly Bruce outlined his plan
of action. On the Farraday property f
there was a large old mica mine. ui? '
worked since the death of his father I
Ever since his arrival he had secret- 1
!y been probing its possibilities, and 1
felt fairly sure of his ground. a
"Matt." he said, "I know a chap f
with capital, who went to Rudemicr v
with nie. He'll back the old mica
mines when i say so. Let's open c
them now, and hire all the available a
men. Get them on one-year contracts,
with option of renewal." j
Matt grinned appreciatively.
"I think I'm looking at or/ next
representative," he said.
The mine was a success. Boys and
men from all districts through the
valley and mountains flocked to work c
instead of remaining idle through the d
summer and autumn, waiting for the a
Gallv mills to open. In vain did Wal- c
lace take the stump, and tell them it
was only a political subterfuge that o
would not last. The old mine was
turning out results, and they knew r
their contracts were safe. n
Election day told the story. When s
the votes were counted in the little
room back of the postoflice, old j
Judge IMnkus stroked his Vandyke h
"I reckon you're beaten, Wally,' he c
remarked through the little glass 8
grating at the stamp window. Nance
heard the words, too, as she stood e
by the window. With a muttered
Jinn, ner cousin rushed past her out h
mto the little square where men were t
cheering for a Ferraday. Blind with
fury, he shot out his fist at Bruce,
but fell as Bruce caught liitn on a
counter blow on the point of the I
chin. f
Nancy laid her forehead on her t
arms as she saw the finish from the t
window. But oddly enough she was
not crying. It was only to hide frqm tho
curious the look of joy on her t
face. She was glad, glad that Bruce f
had won. He hail leaped to the old J
oak stump and Ills voice reached j ]

"Fellow-citizens of the Gap, this is
the end of tho Gaily feud. Right |
here Wallace and I have settled old
scores, and I want to tell you, it's 11

progress and buried the feud forever. ;
you shake hands with me, Gaily, if
you don't I'll beat you up until you j
lo, for we're going to be friends from j ,
this day on." i
Wonderingly the Gap beheld the
two shake hands as Bruce left the
stump. A. miuute more, and he was
beside Nance, where she stood apart
'rom tho others. ]
"Can I help you on your horse?"
he asked. "I'm going to see you
