4 WITHIN THELA W By MARVIN DANA FROM THE PLAY OF BAYARD VE1LLER Copyright. 1913. by the H. K. Ply company. ICONTINtJSD.] She bad been reared in a criminal family, which mu«st exrti^e much. Loner aco she had lost trn of h«»r father. Her mother she had never known. Her one relation was a broth er of hi£h standing as a pickpocket. One principal reason of her success in leading on men to make fools of them se!\ es over her. to their everlastinar re gret afterward, lay in the fact th'it in spite of all the pjross irregularities of her life she remained chaste. The srir! saw in Mary Turner the possibilities of a ladylike personality that misrht mean much financial profit In the devious ways of which she was a mistress With the frankness char acteristic of her. she proceeded to paint glowing pictures of a future shared to the undoiner of ardent and fatuous awains Mary Turner listened with curiasity, but she was in no wise moved to follow such a life, even thouch it did not necessitate- anything worse than a fraudulent playinp at love. So. she steadfastly continued her refusals. She would live straight. "You will find that you are up against an awful frost." Aggie would declare brutally. Mary found the prophecy true. Back in New York she experienced a pov erty more ravaging than any she h.yi known in those five lean years of her working in the store. She had been absolutely penniless for two days, and without food through the gnawing tours, when she found employment in a milliner's shop. Followed a blessed interval in which she worked content edly, happj over the meager stipend. *ince tt served to give her shelter ««d food honestly earned.

A third time she obtained work and there, after a little, *he told her em ployer, a eanfly manufacturer in a small way. the truth as to her having been in prison. The man had a kindly heart and he ran little risk, so he al lowed ber to remain.

They even billed iu the H*» sis+anee of Edward Gilder himself. Who obligingly wrote a verj severe let ter to the girl's employer. In the end. though unwillingly enough, he dismiss ed Mary from his •service. It was then thai despair did come upon the girt She had tried with all the strength of her to Eve straight. Yet. despite her innocence, the world would uot let her live according t« her own conscience. It demanded that she be the criminal it had branded her if she were to live at aM. She still w»lk •ed th*» streets falterin&ly, seeking sotue place, but her heart was pone fn«n the quest. Came an hour when siae thought of the river autd was glad. So she went through the long stretch of ill lighted streets, crossed s»me rail road tracks to a pier, offer wfcic'' ^he hurried to the far end. where ro jected out to the fiercer currents. Hudson. There, without giving *-i self a moment's panse for reflection or hesitation, she leaned out as far as her strength permitted into the coil ot waters. But in that final second nat ural terror in the face of death over came the lethargy of despair—a shriek burst from her lips. On the side of the pier a man had just tied up a motorboat He Ktood up in alaim at the ry and was ,pist in time to gain a glimpse of a white lace under the dim moonlight as it swept down with the tide, two rods be\ond him. Fie threw oft his coat and sprang far out after the drifting body. He came to it in a few furious strokes and caught it Then began the savage struggle to save her and himself. The currents tore at him wrathfnlly. but he fought •gainst them with all the fierceness of his nature. What sa\ed the two of them was the violent temper of the man. Alwavs it had been the demon to set him aflame. His rage mounted and gave him new power in the battle. Under the nrsre of it he conquered and at last brought himself and his charge to the shorr» Mary revived to clear consciousness. which was at first inclined tow-ird hysteria, but this phase yielded soon under the sympathetic ministrations of the man His rather low voice was soothing to her tired soul, and his whole air was at once masterful anr "BSBSIMIBSMBI flsWHslfli aenttj tender.

Joe Uarsou. the notorious forger, led the drippinu git I eastward through the squalid streets until at last they came to an *«det]u!lei.\ lighted avenue, and a tj'wab wuv tound It carried them farther north, and to the east to an apartment bouse that was rather imposing, set n\ .i stieet of humblei dwellings. Here (Jar^m pud the fare and then helped the t,»r] to alight and on into the ha!lna\. Mary went with him quite unafraid, though now with a growing curiosity.

Joe tlanson the forger, had long been acquainted with Aggie and her broth er, though he considered them far be neath hi:n iu the social scale. sin"e their criminal work was not of that high kind on \vhi« he prided himself But as he cast about for some woman to whom he tnijrht take the baples girl he had rescued his thoughts fell •on Aggie He was relieved rittbei .than otherwise to learn that there wa«. ffireadv an acquaintance hetween tin two women.' and the fact thaf hi ciiarge had served time in prison did out infltien"e him one lot against her Mary let herself drift. Tt seemed to her that she had abandoned herself to fate in that hour when she threw "her self into the river Afterward, with out any volition on her part, she fead been restored to life and set within «n environment saew and strange to her. in w1u""h soon, to her surprise, «rtae d'scorered a vivid pleasure. So sfee fought no more, but left destiny fe? work its will, unhampered by her fu tile strivings. For the first t*roe in her life, thank* ito the hospit.ilitv of Aggie Lynch, se cretly re euforc ed from the funds of Jie Oars*n. Marv found herself living iia luxurious idleness, while her everj wish ould b«» gratified by the merest mention of it She was fed on the daintiest of fare, she wa« clothed with the most deffcnte ri hneiss for the first time as to those more mvsterious gar mentis which women love In addition there were as IBHIIV of boots and mag azines as she could wish Her toind. long starved like her bodv seized acidlj on nhe nourishment thus aftoided Iu this interest Aggie had no share—was pertians a little envi ous over Mary's absorption in printed pages Aggie took a vast pride in her guest with the unmistakable air of elegance, and she dared to dream of great triumphs to tome, though as yet she carefntly avoided any sugges tion to Marv of wrongdoing In the end the suggestion came from Marv Turner herself, to the great sur prise of Aggie, and, truth to tell, of herself. There were two factors that chietlj Influent ed her decision The first was due to the feeling that, since the world had elected her. she need no longei concern herself with the world's opin ion or retain any scruples over it Back of this la.\ her bitter sentiment toward the man who had been the di rect cause rf her imprisonment. Kd wardCJilder charge halted iiefort* ..abruptly, the round. haby-laJse face of 1 COLDS TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY her. Then. the woman puckered amazement Her voice rost» shrill. "Well, if it ain't Mary Turner!" "Aggie!" was the reply. In the time that followed Mary hved in the flat whi Aggie Lynch oecu pied with her brother. Jim. a piekpo-k et nsiK esteemed among his fellow craftKinen. The period wrought trans formations of a radical and bewilder ing sort in both the apjiearanee a-ud the character of the girl. The factor that wa« the'lhimediate cause of her decision on an irregulai mode of life was an editorial in one of the daily newspapers. This was a scathing arraignment of a master in high Unanee The point of the writ er's attack was the grim sarcasm foi such ^methods of thievery as are kept within the law That phrase held the girl's fancy, and she read the article again with a quickened interest Then she began to meditate. It was the law that had worked the ruin of ber life, which she had striv en to make wholesome. In conse quence she telt for the law no genuine respect, only detestation as for the epitome of injustice Yet. she gave it a superficial respect, born of those three .years of suffering whjph had been the result of the penalty inflict ed on her .Now, in the paragraph she hud just read she found a clew to sug gestive thought, a hint as to a means by which she might satisfy her rancor against the 'aw that had outraged her. and this in safety since she would at tempt nought save that within the law. CHAPTER V. Keeping Within the Law. ARY'S heart leaped at the pos sibility back of those three words, "within the law." She might do anything, seek any revenge, work any evil, enjoy any mas tery as long as she should keep with the law There could be no pun ishment then That was the lesson taught by the captain in high finance He was at pains always iu uis. htupen dous robberies to keep within the law To that end he employed lawyers ol mighty cuniung and learning to guide his steps anght in such tortuous paths There, then, was the secret. VVhj should she not use the like means': Why, indeed? She had brains enough to devise, surely. Beyond that she needed only to fceep her course most cirefUtfy Vithln those limits of wrong doing permitted by the statutes. Thi sole requirement would be a lawyei equally unscrupulous and astute. She took Jioe -Garsop into her confi dence. He was vastly astonished at the outset *aad not quite pleased. To his view this plan offered merely a fashion of setting difficulties in the way of achievement. Presently, however, ^the sincerity and persistence of the girl won him over The task of convincing him would have been easier had he himself ever known the torment of serving a term in prison. Thus far, however, the for ger had always escaped the penalty for his crimes, though often ck»se to conviction. But Mary's arguments were of a compelling sort as she set them forth in detail, and Garson agreed that .the experiment should he J™»JS.

Inquire of ALBERT STEINHAUSER,, ad 46tf) INDIAN FIGHTER IS REMINISCENT Major *S. A .Buell Recalls Early Days •$$ In This Region, -^f feL'v Major Salmon A. Buell, a pioneer of Minnesota and Indian war veteran, got up early on Thanksgiving, says the Minneapolis Journal, and from his appearance no one would have supposed that he is 86 years old and that he suffered a physical collapse a few days before while in the office of Postmaster W. E. Hale of Minne apolis. Since his attack Major Buell has rested easily. He was up and about his room, and on Thanksgiving was^ back in normal condition. Last October marked the begin ning of Major Salmon A.Buell's eighty-seventh year and found him the oldest practising lawyer in Min nesota. He has followed his profes sion in the closing years of a life full of activity—a life fuller, perhaps than most men's lives, of the circum stances which are commonly asso ciated with stern reality rather than heart-moving romance. For among the many scenes of his eighty-odd years, come those of naval service, military service, Indian fighting, pioneering' experience as soldier, sailor, lawyer, executive, hon ored and honorable citizen but be fore them all, pre-eminent, stands out his memory of his bride and their wedding day. As he talks and ges tures with a fine, firm, almost youth ful hand, his eyes glow and his voice becomes vibrant. Many of his four score years fall from him, and he is again the gallant chivalrous young northerner who wooed and won a beautiful daughter of a proud Vir ginia daughter. Describes His Wedding Day. *It was in the historic old church of St. Paul's, in Norfolk," Major Buell said recently, "that Elizabeth P. Freeman became my wife. It was in '53—Dec. 20, 1853—dne of those beautiful southern winter days. I can see the carriages now as they drove up to the church. The bridesmaids and their attendants—we did not call them ushers in those days—formed an aisle to the church door, through which we passed, my bride and I. The church was filled with a throng of gaily dressed people it was a beautiful scene and a great society event in those good old Virginia days. She was the daughter of a promi nent slave-holding family, and all the countryside came to do her homage.9' Although Major Buell inclined to recall the love-plighted years of liis lifetime, he also drew interesting material from the stirring experience of his sea-faring days, when he was acting midshipman of the United States navy in the late forties. For three and one-half years he cruised the seas, sailing to the west coast of Africa, to the waters of northern and western Europe, and on both sides of South America, going around the Horn. On account of ill health he resigned from the navy. Starts Practise of Law. Immediately after terminating his sea service he took up the study of law, and in 1852 he went to Indian apolis and began to practise. He continued in Indianapolis urfHl 1857. Then, seeking a change for his health, he eame to Minnesota and became secretary of the St. Peter company, thus entering associations which seem to have given extraordinarily to the state of Minnesota in numbers of men made of the timber of leader ship. The men of St. Peter were of a stature tvhich loom large in Minne sota history, and among them stands out prominently the name of Buell. Thus It came about that when the exegeocies of the Indian uprising in 1862 tnifid the mettle of men, Salmon A. Bueltl's qualities of leadership gave him prominence, and he stood the test. was made up of about 130 men. When they arrived at New Ulm the Indians withdrew before them, and on Wednesday morning in the settle ment the troops were organized, with Flandrau colonel in command and IBuell made adjutant, chief of staff and provost marshal, "because," said Flandrau, "he had been in tho navy and was a good organizer." He ap pointed a provost guard and took possession of the houses and supplies in o»der to provide for the troops and refugees. All day Thursday the refugees kept coming into New Ulm from all sides. On Friday, Buell accompanied by a body of men whom Colonel Flandrau sent out to rescue a party of a dozen refugees who had hidden west of the village. The Indians attacked the village again on Saturday—from 600 to 800 of them. The fight continued desperately all day. The Sioux with drew at night. In this fight ten whites were killed and fifty-one wounded, but the Indians' were re pulsed and retired,* burning and plundering as they went. fb Guards Party of Refugees. On Monday, Colonel Flandrau or dered the evacuation of the village, and. Major Buell, as chief of staff, accompanied the train of refugees on their expedition to Mankato as a place of refuge. There were about 1,500 persons in "this pathetic cara van," as Major Buell called it, made up of many women and children who had lost relatives in the massacre or the fighting, and of men who bad lost their homes. ,x Shortly after this the troops were ordered to join General Sibley at S Peter, and Flandrau's company was disbanded. Major Buell, however, continued to serve under Flandrau as adjutant over troops in the south western part of Minnesota, until, two months later, the Mounted Rangers were organized. That winter—his commission was issued in November —he was stationed at St. Peter with three companies. He was also in command of the cavalry guard when thirty-eight Indian leaders in the massacre were executed in Mankato,' in the winter of 1862. In May of, 1863 Major Buell went with his com-1 panies of the Mounted Rangers—' they were later known as the First Minnesota cavalry—with General Sib ley against the Indians, proceeding to the Missouri river. Major Buell was left in charge of the cavalry reserve camp near Big Stone Lake. The re-. turn of the force was by way of Fort' Abercrombie. Reaching Minnesota, the term of service expired and the troops were disbanded. It was after these stirring events that Major Buell went back to St. Peter, having aided in making the frontier habitable once more, and re- I sumed his position with the St. Peter company. He also went actively to practising law. For a number of years he lived on a farm across the river from St. Peter, in Le Sueur county, and it was at this time that the mistress of his house dispensed a charming hospitality. Clerk of Indian Agency. For eleven years, from 1874 to 1885, Major and Mrs. Buell lived in Indianapolis. In 1885 Major Buell was appointed clerk of the Yakima Indian agency in Washington terri tory. At the end of a year he was obliged to resign that position be cause of the failing health of his wife. He took her to Philadelphia for treatment. They stayed there for two years, during which time Major Buell engaged in practise. In 1889 a change seemed imperative for his wife's health and they came to Minneapolis to live. Mrs Buell died here in 1893. Major Buell has been a resident of Minneapolis continuous ly since that time, occasionally going south during the cold months. In political faith Major Buell is a democrat. While he has never been an aspirant for political honors he always has been staunch in his sup port of his party leaders. He was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, having joined in Philadel phia in 1888. He maintained his mem bership in the George G. Meade post of that city. He was once an Odd Fellow and a Mason. He was brought up in a Methodist home, but, after his marriage, he attended the Episcopal church with his wife and became a member. Some years af ter his wife's death he joined the Catholic church and is a member of Rev. J. M. Cleary's parish. Major Buell lives with distant rela tives at 3709 Pillsbury avenue, Min neapolis. He has no children, his only near relatives being a brother, J. L. Buell of Quinnisec, Mich., an officer in the regular army under General MeClellan, and two sisters, Alma Buell of Cincinnati, and Sister Ann Cecelia, of the order of the Sis ters of Providence, with the mother house—St. Mary's of the Woods near Terra Haute, Ind. They are all younger than Majoi Buell.—St. Peter Herald. Major Buell will be remembered by many New Ulmites who heard the little old gentleman speak at Turner Hall during the Celebration last year. He spent the week here and declared it was the happiest time of his life to meet all his old-time friends of early days, puts it. SNEFFELS. COL. A. J.
