Next Week "THK IH'KK OF OBLIVION" By John Reed Scott. 1 (Continued from our last issue.) I Carron awaited her at the foot "I the clambering stair. Ills ex pectation had not time to shapen to mi pail, mi- before she appear ed, still in her brown skirt and | working blouse, but with the dull cloud of her hair admirably con trolled. ! "Which way shall we go?" she inquired. i "Oh, any way! You take me!" I HIS irritations, his t barings were wit lid rawn. "Then I will take you to the spring. It is about the only thing there is to see that we will have time for." They walked along the drive. Carron looked at Blanch and looking thought: "She certainly | Isn't pretty. Bhe's less —or more." | Aloud he said, "And have you lived here long?" "Eight years. The' new house has been built since then," she iiin.sc.l. "Look, there are the old gate posts. They ought to have been pulled doan long ago, but I am afraid I should miss them. The spring path turns off just here." He would hardly have known it was a path. To one driving by it would look like a natural opening In the forest. Some little dis tance on he saw the fragments of a board hanging gray and rain worn from a post; farther yet the thin iron legs of a chair—such a chair as one sees around cafe ta bles—thrust out of the drift of pine needles. Ret ween these rel ics the lithe body of the girl swung at a quick-footing pace. Then, a little in front of him, he saw two hand rails, all but col lapsing, yet somehow clinging to gether, and embracing a sort of I inclosure. clear of pj,nes and per i haps ?>t) feet across. In the center !<>f this I.lain he Rader was stand | ing by a circular ledg;e inclosing | what looked to lie a well. "This is where they used to come in the morning to drink the water." she explained. Carron was astonlsched and en lightened. "Do you mean to tell me that this was a health resort, off here at the end of creation?" She nodded. " 'The Ciant Min eral Spring Hotel.' Remember the | tumble-down sign as you came in the gate? I supposed you knew — but, of course, mother never speaks of it. She feels so badly about It." Canon raised interrogative eye brows at her. "What is wrong with having a health resort?" She gave him all her smile. "Nothing, if it is a real one. But you see—well, we didn't know when we bought It." "You—bought it —" "Not exactly Father took It for I debt. A friend of bis built the place. It was a very fine house at the time it was built, but it had been closed so long when we got It, it was dreadfully run down. You see, we thought we could sell It. Father thought the mineral springs would he worth some thing, but when we had them an alyzed we found out they were Just ordinary water that had been charged with sulphur and iron." She laughed. "Think what the man said when father told him what we had found out! He said, 'Why, of course, I expected How Four Hopefuls Are Looking Art Young, famous cartoonist at the Chicago convention, here sketches the expressions on the faces of four candidates—as they must look, Young says, from the talk he has heerd among the delegates.

" "•And Mr. Rader didn't?" She shook her head. "Mother wanted to, but he wouldn't let her. She says he doesn't have the problem of running a hotel or not .'iioitgTi; and besides it would lie good for thepeople to drink a lot of water even if It Is Jnst plain But father aald he couldn't live a pretense." "And how about you?" Carron inquired. "I? Oh, I don't know. I sup pose jt would be hard to know all the time that you were cheating l>eople; but the way the thing is now Is rather hard on mother." "Doesn't she —isn't It—" He was afraid he was going too far, but the Idea of any one in fin- ancial straits, above all these two women, disturbed him mightily. "Oh, yes; we have a number of people in the summer. We do Quite well enough in a business way, only if it wore a health re sort we should do much better." They were walking back toward the house now. and at the first turn ln the path were met by Rader. The scholar had come a step forward, and now tentatively lift ed his voice. "Blanche?" he said. "Your mother sa.ss she is waiting for you to stitch the quilts. I've been looking for you all over the hill." "But why didn't she blow the horn? Why should she send you? I don't believe she did." Blanche Rader objected mischievously to the scholar's diffident glance* "It Is Mr. Carron who has waked you up and got you out." "You will have to hurry, won't you?" Rader asked his daughter. "Don't let us detain you," Car ron said. • She gave an amused, puzzled glance, as if she thought her father's behavior % little odd. "Very well," she said, -"then, since you're so good, I wtl run." She darted among the treev The scholar was pulling thoughtfully on his pipe, his eyes, at intervals, making excursions to the young man's face. "He believes it," Carron reflected, "yes, by Jove, he does!" The singular old chap, always in the clouds, his belief was not much reassured! But there was the man on the road. "Try Raders," he had said. Hadn't he meant, Try Blanche Rader?" Carron caught himself drifting just on the edge of creduUty. He drew a deep breath for his dive into unknown waters. He walked a little niedltathve half circle on the soft piny floor of the forest, and came to a stop square in front of Rader. "Well!" he said with a falling inflection. "Well?" Rader replied smiling. "What does she want of the horse?" Carron said quietly. He said it so quietly one could hardly think any risk attached to it or any suspense for him. Rader took his little yellow bowled pipe out of his mouth. "Didn't she tell you?" "The truth is, I don't believe she knows she's told me any thing," Carron confessed. "In a manner of speaking, I got it out of her." Rader knitted his forehead. "Better ask her straight," he said laconically. "Do you think she would tell me?" "Heaven knows," said the scholar, with a humorous eye; "I never do!" "She told you." He was mak ing assumptions as fast as he could find them, and every time Rader transformed them into facts. "That is different. She tells me everything because I don't care. What would an old fellow like me care? She might just as well go w In ■ per it to one of those stone heads on the mountain top yonder." Carron restrained a smile at the scholar's idea of what a tight ves sell he was for a secret. "But ask her —ask her!" Rader insisted. "And suppose she won't an swer?" Rader shrugged, as one who would say, "Then, that will be the end of It." The young man laughed. The thing would not end as simply as all that. If Blanche Rader would UOt peak CHAPTER IV. Wild Things nnd Tame. The next morning Blanche in formed Carron she would have time to take him up the canyon, so he saddled the horses and they set out. The elusive quality in the girl fascinated him, and lie found him self putting forth every effort to draw her out. She named the various peaks as they rode; some times with a sweep of her arm she would indicate a canyon or an old trail, giving bits of informa tion or telling Indian legends. Carron realized that she knew every inch of the country, rough and wild though It was, as well as every creature roaming over it. He glanced up at a great rock wall they were just rounding, and exclaimed over tlie sight the ftrrn in the trail brought to view. They stopped their horses high on the mountain side and stood overlooking canyons aud lower peaks. Just opposite a rugged outline suggested a great face topped by a helmet. But it was not this strange form on which attracted Carron's attention, but rather a little Window set jewel like in tlie helmet of stone. And through it shone the strange blue of the distance. He looked upon white lights and shadows, and lines of summits half seen and half imagined by the eye. In the setting of the solid wall It ap peared a hundred times more bright and marvelous than with the graduated lines of distance between; nearer, yet more im probable. "What is the name of that?" he said. j "What? Where?" She looked in all directions hut tha right one. It seemed odd that she, who had pointed out so many objects less remarkable, should not be on fa miliar terms with this one, and instinctively look in the right di rection. "There," he said. Her head came around very slowly toward the thing his point ing indicated. "Oh!" her glance rested on It for a moment. "You mean that gap? It hasn't any name." "It looks as If It had," Carran insisted. "I never saw one like It." "Oh, there are lots of gaps," she said vaguely. He let. her lead him from the subject as well as from the Bight. "Aren't you tired?" he asked the girl. ! "I could keep on .a 11 day," she said. "So could t but I would so much rather sit on a cool rock under a tree and listen to your opinions of the universe." She laughed. "I shall have to Invent them then." "That's easy enough. The prob lems of the universe are nothing to the problem of where two peo ple are going to find some shade." "I know where there is some," she said. He gazed. Sky, hill, rocks, all bright and naked. "Where?" "Just around the corner." He thought she meant the next bend In the road, but she turned promptly from the beaten track into as blind a bit of country as Carron ever cared to experience. They came out on a summit much larger than the little peaks around it. Upon tlie farther edge appeared a small company of cedara. At the entrance of this proph et's retreat, the girl slid, panting and smiling, Into Carron's hands. "The only shade in this section of country." she remarked. "I found it all by myself." And, leaving him to fasten the horses, she walked forward through the trees. Following her presently, he found her sitting on the other side of the grove 1 caning against an ancient cedar bole. With a sigh lie stretched himself full length on the ground beside her. "Father told me that you h ad come here for the hunting." Sho spoke to break the too long silence. Carron lifted one eyebrow. "Hunting will do. But what I have really come for is for a taste of the irresponsible life." "Oh. me!" she sighed, "we never have anything else!" "Then I shall expect you to do great things for me." "(ireat things?" Her eyes grew larger. "Yes—shake me up out of my stiffness. Wake me up. Show me—" he hesitated—"all of it!" "Of what?" "The odd hours—sunset, moon rise, whatever time out of the 24 you like the best." Her eyes sparkled, and a smile curled the corners of her mouth. "Well, which Is it?" he asked, and felt an Impulse to reach out and stroke her, she looked so sweet. "The middle of the night!" she said it very softly, as though she feared the day might overhear her. "I love to be out In it; it is like water, smooth and deep; like flood tide." Her voice became a part of the silence. "Will you take me out into the middle of the night, and drown me In It some time?" he asked. "Will you bring me out here?" She glanced at him, no longer confidentially, side-long and rath er mockingly. "What would the people say to me, running out here in the middle of the night!" "I thought you had been out here at that hour before?" "Never! Sunset, moonrise, sunrise, you can't guess what foi\" In spite of himself he was aware of suspense. "To watch squirrels play." The mischievous bright face of a child peered provoklugly through the woman's. "You think that Is silly, don't you?" she asked, not ing his relaxation of interest. "Very! You can see squirrels play anywhere at any time of day." "Ah, that s hows how little you know about squirrels. They are too busy through the day—they have to work. Sunrise is their party. Over there on the hill op posite there are lots of holes'! I sit up here and see their heads pop out. If 1 keep perfectly quiet sometimes they come to the edge of the grove." "And you tame them, I sup pose?" For his life he couldn't keep the irony out. "No!" she scorned him. "I hate tame things. I love them to be wild!" ""Indeed?" His alert mind caught a significance here. "I thought women liked to coax things to eat from the hand." She shrugged. "I don't know what most women like, but I know what I like. Most people don't know what wild animals are like at all. When they think of the word 'wild' they think it means afraid. But really it is just the opposite of that. It is when the creatures are alone and don't sus pect any human being, when they are themselvee, (hat you can see what a wild creature really means." "It means—?" Carron prompt ed, very cautious for fear of start ling her. "It means something quick and beautiful and heavenly fearless!" "But there's a difference in de gree. You have found that so?" "Oh, yes. The squirrels, of course, as long as they don't see you, feel perfectly safe. But some are almost impossible to watch without their knowing—the larg er animals, the ones that sniff you. Yet, If ever you can, seeing them is the most wonderful thing ln the world." Carron lay for a moment with out speaking, studying her face. "Did It never occur to you, when you are looking at such animals, that it would be even more won derful to catch them?" "No. I would rather see them BY LI'CIA OHAMBKRLAIN Copyright, 1910, by Bonus-Merrill Co. A NOVEL A W_F.K! i killed than caught." Carron bit his lips. "My dear young friend, do you think that is quite sensible?" "No," she said. "I don't. But I don't think it Is sensible either to want always to catch things and break them." A word had alipp.-.l out that showed too plain-1 ly of what she was thinking, what vision was continually before her eyes. "Men are always shooting things, or taming them, or con trolling them," she went on, vivid with argument, "and they always say they do it because It's reason able. But I don't believe It is reasonableness that makes them do it. They want to and so they will!" "I broke in my mare myself," he told her warmly. "You must think me a fanatic. I have never seen a horse broken, and 1 never will if I can help it; but, of course, horses bred on ranches have to be broken, I sup pose. That is rather different." "And the wild ones? What would you do with them?" "Why, let them aloue, of course." CHAPTER V. The Window- of the Sphinx. "Think of it!" Carron came bursting in on the peaceful scholar. The young man was hot from lils ride, and excited. "She wants it let alone!" he almost shouted the words. Rader looked up startled. "Who? What?" he murmured. "Your daughter! the horse! that's what she wants of it —and that's all." The quickness with which the , scholar took his meaning suggest ed a mind that had been dwelling on the same subject. "Did she tell you that?" he asked. "Didn't she, though! That, and a lot more!" The long-pent Irri tation broke forth. "Oh. she gave mo her ideas, she didn't leave me a doubt on tlie matter! She said se would rather see it killed than caught; that breaking horses was not a sensible occupation." "I don't understand that," the scholar said slowly. "Of course you don't! It's the most infernal nonsense! Woman talk! A horse is no use until it's broken. That's sense, isn't it?" "And she won't tell you where sho saw It?" "Tell! She would no more tell than if it were the sacred this and she its priest. Oh, I don't doubt she has seen something re markable. I can understand how she'd be Jealous to keep It, if she \ wanted it for anything—to use it —but, man, that's the douce of it 1 (auctioh) l4 ALW I STARTS I I TOMORROW I I A rare opportunity to buy high I I grade Watches, Diamonds and Jewelry I I at your own price. ■ X Pressing obligations force us to I ■ close out part of our stock at any price I ■ you might give in order to raise $10,000 | ■ to satisfy our creditors.

Carron brooded sulkily and fintlly Hung himself out of the room and went for a long walk. He returned to find a II the heavy batteries of house cleaning unmasked. It seemed natural that the scholar should shut him self ln with the peace of his books, while the upheaval in the hotel * went forward. He would have been helpless in such an emer gency. But Carron was born for the handling of objects, animate or inanimate. In the first days of his arrival, while operations had been limited to the more po- . lite business of sweeping, he had kept his distance, but it was im possible to remain aloof when two women were struggling with lad ders and hammers. He, in spite of Mrs. Rader's objections, made himself aide-in chief of the situation. She was « most anxious to accept him in this role. She looked a t him as if he were exclusively an ornament, and at l«est a suspicious ornament. There was no argument for this attitude of mind hut to take off a coat and show this self-willed creature that, if she knew what she wanted, he knew how It ought to be done. Mrs. Rader betrayed a diffidence In the situation that spoke touchingly of a woman un-" accustomed to be helped.
