CHAPTER I—Jim Cotter, forest ranger,
had been mysteriously killed in the pursuit
of his duties. Gordon Breck, his best friend,
takes over Cotter’s job, hoping to avenge
hla murder. •’Dad’' Cook, forest superin
tendent, warns Breck that the Tillson broth
ers, mountain moonshiners, are apt to give
him trouble.
CHAPTER H—Before leaving for his
mountain station, Breck buys an outfit and
decides to attend the public dance run by
the Tillsons in Lone Tree.
CHAPTER III—At the dance Breck dances
with Louise Temple, pretty '‘cowgirl" for
whom he takes a liking. Unknown to Breck,
she is being courted by Art Tillson, young
est of the three Tillson brothers. Angered
by Breck’s attentions to the girl, he picks a
fight which ends indecisively when someone
seta fire to the hall. Breck’s first thought Is
of Louise, whom he "rescues" only to find
that she is quite capable of taking care of
CHAPTER IV—Breck and his chief set out
for the mountain station. Halfway, they are
met by Sierra Slim, moss-back mountaineer
who is also In the forest service. Around the
campfire that night, Breck learns from Si
erra that tracking down Jim Cotter's mur
derer must be done cautiously and by de
vious methods.
CHAPTER V—Cook. Breck and Sierra
continue their ascent of the mountains. Stop
ping to rest, they sight the Tillsons, far down
the canyon, returning to their hideaway.
CHAPTER VI—Next day. Cook sends
Breck and Sierra In one direction to repair
the telephone line, while he takes another.
Over the campfire at night Sierra tells Breck
mere about Louise Temple. "That kid's a
thoroughbred," he says. He also believes
that Art Tillson Is not essentially "bad,"
bet la the victim of circumstances.
CHAPTER VH Returning to Cook’s
eamp, Breck Is directed to go to Rock House
Meadow, his permanent base. On his way,
ho la the target of a pistol shot from an un
seen assailant. The bullet misses, but his
frightened pack animals bolt and Breck
■oas In pursuit. Finding a deserted cabin,
he takes shelter from the rain. A moment
later two of the Tillson brothers arrive and
Breek hides in the cabin loft.
CHAPTER vm—Hidden in the cabin,
Brock hears the three Tillsons discuss a plot
against his life. Waiting his chance, Breck
surprises the brothers and holds them at the
point of his gun. Jud, the oldest brother,
Sera a bribe if Breck will "make no trou
r.” Playing for time, Breck pretends to
take the offer under consideration. Still un
able to prove anything against them, he lets
the brothers go.
CHAPTER DC—Breck’s duty Is to take
count at the annual cattle drive at Rock
House Meadow. There he meets Louise
Temple, who is running her own cattle.
Trapped In a narrow canyon before the on
rushing steers, Breck’s quick action saves
her from being trampled. He takes her to
his cabin over Art Tillson's protest. While
she is resting. Louise and Breck talk and
find mutual interests. Breck realizes he is in
love with her.
CHAPTER X—With nightfall, Louise, now
recovered, leaves the cabin and makes her
camp in the meadow. Later. Breck rides
over to see if everything is all right, finds
Art Tillson who tries to pick a quarrel.
Breck rides on and discovers a large herd of
cattle being run out of the meadow before
the count. They belong to Jackson, cowman
who represents all the ranchers in the cattle
run. Breck tells Jackson that the govern
ment laws are to be enforced. Jackson
counters with a warning that Breck must
expect trouble if he pursues his course.
CHAPTER XI—The cattle count starts.
Feeling among the cattlemen is tense as
Breck turns back all cattle in excess of
each man’s allotment. When Jud Tillson
confronts him with the bribe he had pre
viously offered. Breck is placed in a com
promising position and the cattlemen ac
cuse him of grafting.
CHAPTER XII—Breck visits the Temple
homestead and meets Louise’s father, whom
ha immediately likes. Louise warns him
that he must regain the confidence of the
CHAPTER XIII—Louise comes to Breck
to tell him of a meeting of the cowmen at
Jackson's camp, urging him to attend.
He goes, though he is plainly unwelcome.
The men are planning to move a boundary
line which has denied them use of grazing
lands. Satisfied their cause is just, Breck
regains the friendship of the men by taking
the lead in moving the fence, and narrowly
misses being shot in the foray that ensues.
CHAPTER XIV—Breck goes to his first
forest fire, in a remote district inhabited by
squatters. Dominated by the Tillsons, they
refuse to assist in fighting the fire.
CHAPTER XV—With the help of one boy.
Breck tries to control the fire. He wages a
lasing fight until evening when assistance
comes in the form of Louise Temple. The
fire under control. Breck tells his plan to
"clean out” the squatters because of their
refusal to help. Louise, fearing for his safe
ty, pleads with him not to.
CHAPTER XVI—In the hope of getting
much-needed federal funds for fire protec
tion, Breck invites Irene Sutherland and her
father, a U. S. senator, old friends, to spend
a vacation as guests of the forest service.
CHAPTER XVII—Breck goes to Lone Tree
to meet the Sutherlands, who arrive loaded
with "dude” camp equipment. Art Tillson
watches them as they unpack.
CHAPTER XVIII—On the way to the camp
the party passes Art Tillson. He and Irene
seem fascinated with each other. Breck
vainly warns Irene to ignore Tillson. Arriv
ing at Temple’s, Irene affects a possessive
attitude with Breck in front of Louise and
ridicules his obvious affection for the cow
(Now go on with the story.)
Any thought she may have given
to it during the night did not change
her action the next morning. About
nine o’clock Breck saw her come
down to the tourist pasture, dressed
in fresh riding habit, with little
snub-nosed spurs jingling at her
heels. He did not go out and she
went directly to the corral where
Art had brought up her horse.
Breck understood the game. Per
haps Irene could not lope cowboy
fashion, though she knew how to
canter well enough, having been
taught that by various young men
on the social paths of Flintridge.
Now she was sweetly helpless Art
saddled for her, readjusted her stir
rups, let her put one dainty boot on
his knee in assisting her to mount.
Then he handed up a leather quirt,
the braiding of which must have
taken half the night.
Side by side they moved out
across the meadow, heading toward
a level spot beyond the stream.
Breck left his cabin. The Senator
came down from his camp to meet
"Well, my boy,” he chuckled,
“your treatment worked. I’m not
nearly as stiff this morning. Where
do we go today?”
Breck had intended a trip into
country where Sutherland could find
golden trout, but now canceled it.
‘‘I’m sorry. I’ll have to put off our
ride. My horse has cast a shoe
andU .might as well go over the
whole bunch at once.”
He felt Jt unwise to leave the sta
tion as long as Irene was nearby,
courting trouble. His fear was not
for her. She could freeze a man
when the time came. Yet if Tillson
realized she had deliberately made
a fool of him, there was no telling
what way his vengeance would turn.
"Anything suits me,” the Senator
answered genially. "I’ll take Mary
for a walk up the canyon. The fish
can wait.”
"Tomorrow, maybe,” Breck sug
gested, but gave even that with
mental reservation.
When Sutherland had gone back
to camp Breck tied his stock under
a pine and went to work. He had
attempted the job onlv once before,
and that was at headquarters with
Sierra Slim’s help. Now he had no
envy for the village blacksmith.
At times when he straightened
from bending over a hoof, he
glanced off across the meadow.
Irene’s lesson was progressing. He
saw her lope short distances with
Art close at her side. The length
of their galloping increased, taking
them further along the flat, until
most of the practice was being done
at the eastern notch. Presently they
dismounted near a spring.
Breck finished with Kit, then be
gan on Custer, and as the big gray
objected, his whole attention was
given to the job. When he did look
up again, Irene and Tillson were not
in sight. He stepped out from the
tree and surveyed the meadow, fol
lowing with his eyes up a narrow
arm that disappeared behind a ridge
of rock. For a moment he stood
doubtful. Perhaps he was making
too much of the whole affair. He
strode back to work.
It was half an hour later when two
figures came from the gap and
turned toward his station. Imme
diately Breck saw the unusual dis
tance between them. Irene rode in
the lead. Art held back. They kept
that position across the meadow and
at the stream Irene swung up to
the camp alone. Tillson continued
without a glance the way she had
He loped into the tourist pasture,
brought out his mules and saddled
them. Then he lashed on the salt
bags, drawing cinches savagely and
cursing any animal that moved.
With packs secured, he flung him
self into the saddle and pushed his
train in a fast walk north toward
Sulphur Creek.
"And that,” Breck wondered,
"means what?” It could mean
much, and he knew the waste of
time in trying to guess. One thing
he felt would follow now. Irene
would come back to him. She usu
ally did. Give her time.
He cooked his noon meal, loitered
in sight about the cabin, then went
back to finish his shoeing. Goof was
the last. Breck had three shoes on
the mule and the fourth fitted, when
a small voice behind him said:
"You don’t know how poetic you
look! The village smithy!”
He dropped the hoof and turned.
Irene was perched on a log.
"How long have you been there?”
he asked.
"Hours. I thought you would nev
er look around.”
Breck picked up the hoof again
and tacked on the shoe. "Where’s

there?” he asked.
tonight.” She drew her shoulders to
gether in a little disdainful shrug. "I
can’t stand a brag.”
Breck bent the nails and clinched
them, then finished off with the rasp.
He wanted to let Irene continue of
her own accord.
She did presently moving near
er and sitting on the anvil. “He
was an interesting fellow. But he
misunderstood my motives.”
"Of course,” Breck agreed. “How
could he know that you were doing
it mostly for me to watch.”
“Why, how can you say that!”
Before answering, Breck released
Goof, picked up his tools and put
them in the box. Then he sat down
beside her. “Irene, we’re not chil
Suddenly she put both hands on
his arm, laughing, “You are, Gor
don! Just a big boy. You’re not
really disturbed, are you?”
Breck frowned. “You haven’t
helped matters by sending Tillson
off like that.”
“Pooh! I’m not afraid of him.”
“That isn’t what I mean.”
“You’re afraid of him?” Irene
Breck ignored it. “I don’t like

his hand". "What did Tillson brag
“Oh, what a man he is in these
mountains. How many cows he
owns and how he is the big boss
here. Except for a brother, who is
boss too. He can even forecast
events, like—oh I can’t remember.
I was tired of it by that time.”
Breck sprang up, shot by the sug
gestion of her words. "What did he
say? Anything about a fire?”
“It might have been that,” she ad
"He said later he had some im
portant business.” Irene sighed.
“Please don’t make me use my
brain. It’s tired.”
Breck looked down into her face.
It was wholly innocent of any defi
nite knowledge. No doubt Art had
bragged in vague terms nothing
she might repeat.
“Irene,” he asked, “did Tillson
give any names? Or places, or peo
She turned imploring eyes to him.
“Must I think?”
“Enough to remember what you
were talking about. Was any moun
tain or meadow brought up?”
Irene counted on her fingers. "I
slept well last night and remarked
on it. He said something about
sleeping too. Then we talked some
more. Then he bragged about know
ing so much. He said if I would
look at the sky tonight over—is there
a sleeping mountain?”
“Sleeping Beauty,” Breck urged.
Irene shook her head with a little
scowl. “I really don’t know. Where
are you going?”
Breck had untied Kit. Now he
said quickly, “Promise me you’ll say
nothing about this.”
“Have I told you something?”
“Perhaps. Promise me.”
“I’ll not talk,” Irene promised,
He strode on to the telephone,
dropped Kit’s reins, and rang head
quarters. Cook answered.
“Dad,” Breck asked, “is Slim
there? No, don’t call him. Tell him
to take the trail and meet me half
way. I’ve got some letters that
must go out.”
“It’s sort of late in the afternoon,”
Cook began.
“They’re important!" Breck cut
in. He could not trust the wire. Too
much chance of his word being in
tercepted from one of the patrol in
A pause told that his meaning had
gotten across.
"All right,” Cook finished briefly
and hung up.
Breck strapped on his gun and
put an ax in the saddle scabbard.
The whole thing might be a false
clue yet he read Art Tillson. The
boy would boast to make himself
big before Irene. After all, he had
told nothing she could understand.
Sleeping Beauty mountain came
into sight as he topped a rise in the
trail some distance beyond Rock
House. It rose on the eastern rim
of the range, a high, barren crest
sculptured in the form of a woman
reclining. The peak was above tim
berline K but the wooded lower slope
offered dangerous fire country.
South of the mountain were the Pot
holes, and putting these conditions
together, Breck formed tentative
plans. They could be completed
when he met Sierra Slim.
As he rode, his body grew tense,
for that was the mood of the forest,
and he strained to catch all sounds
beyond the limit of his vision. Kit,
too, listened, and it was he who
stopped abruptly without command
when they were still an hour from
the summit.
Breck rose in his stirrups, motion
less until there came a faint thud
ahead. Then he wheeled suddenly
from the trail. Halting off in a lane
of trunks, he sat waiting with his
eyes upon a patch of light where
that other rider must pass.

Certain authorities claim that
colds and their resulting mucous
conditions are due mostly to the
great amount of starchy and sur
gary foods we eat. Over-eating is
a main factor in developing consti
pation. Because of this we often
are weakened and subject to colds
and the aftermain of unpleasant
mucous conditions. Mucous mem
branes are part of Nature’s scheme
for elimination. When the intestinal
tract overloads with poisons from
clogging, these poisons irritate and
inflame the membranes and cause
them to discharge excessively. Be
cause the discharge is greater than
normal a lot of hawking and spit
ting often follows.
If you are one of constipation’s
victims, by all means stay away
from crowded places because the law
of average gives a cold, at certain
times, to every other person. Don’t
risk crowds until you have given
the Famous World's Tonic, with
valuable alkalines. a chance to re
lieve that constipat n. Mrs. S. A.
Woolley of 102 Pomeroy St., Sidney,
Ohio tells a story that points out
the crowd hazard nicely.
“When wc were at the Chicago
World’s Fair we got caught in some
pretty big crowds. They had streets
paved with asphalt and the immense
crowds did a lot of spitting on these
pavements. When the sun got good
and hot it probably hatched out a
lot of germs. I learned that they
used to wash off these pavements
with a hose but that was no help
for me because ever since then I’ve
had trouble with colds and mucous.
I’ve been constipated for a number
of years and that enabled this con
dition to set in along with a number
of other ailments. Of late my con
stipation has been extremely bad
and that aggravated these conditions
an awful lot.
“I’ve taken five bottles of World’s
Tonic now and my constipation has
been so completely relieved that I’m
hot having any more trouble with
mucous conditions. My appetite is
much better and I don’t get those
painful headaches either. I feel a
lot stronger and don’t have the old
indigestion distresses so much.”
All imported herbs, barks, roots,
etc., used in World’s Tonic are care
fully examined by the United States
Department ef Agriculture for
strength and quality. Then under
the watchful eye of modern chemical
science, they are skillfully blended
together in an up-to-date sanitary
and scientific laboratory.
