she rose, with a sigh, and got tback
under the covers. "If it will do you

was a sudden catch in Kitty's voice,
and a sob struggled into her-throat and
shook her from head to foot.
"Now, what's the matter with you?"
Lydia suddenly exclaimed, anl -she
turned over and put her arms .about
her friend. "Don't, don't, Kitty!" Then
they eried silently together until they
fell asleep.
IIE next morning, atter .his re
turn from Atlanta, George met
Bascom Truitt at the ware
"Brought yore mother in with .me,".
he said. "I left 'er up at the postoffice
readin' a letter. She'll be down -direct
ly. I missed you at the reunion, but I
heard you was on hand. Lord, I missed
the sidewalk, they tell met I met some
old friends that kept me full :toAthe.
neck through the whole business. -1
couldn't toot my bugle."
"That's one way to celebrate," George
said, with a smile, as Truitt was turn
Ing away.
A few minutes later :Mrs. Buckley
came into the office. She wore a check
ed gingham sunbonnet and it was
pulled well down over her ,face. In
her hand she held a letter. By her
silence and agitated manner George
knew she had received unpleasant
news. lie placed a chair for her near
his desk and resumed his own seat,
wondering what could have happened.
"You have a letter from father," he
said tentatively.
"Not fron him, George, but It's from
up thar. It's from .the prison doctor."
She was silent a noment, then she
continued: "Yore pa's bad off, George.
The doctor thinks he's had a serious at
tack. It's that old hurt place in his
head that he got when he fell off the
wagon fifteen -year ago. The doctor
cayn't tell how it'll come out, but he
says I'd better be -up thar. Yore .pa
keeps axii' fer me. I eayn't refuse
'im, George." The speaker suddenly
paused and applied her handkerchief to
her eyes.
"Well, you can go, of course," said
"Oh, kin I?".she exclaimed. "I was
afeard you wouldn't want ine to. I'd.
rather go, George. I sorter hardened
my heart agin 'Im when he -was stout
an' well, but now.ie's sufferin','.I want
to be with 'im." She broke down and
began to cry again.
"There is nothing on earth to hinder
you," said her son, who was deeply
touched by her emotion, "and if you
want me to do so, I'll go, too, mother.
He's my father--the only one I ever
had, and"
"One of us will be enough," said Mrs.
Buckley. -"But, George, I've been
studyin' since I got this lettr. I never
thought of it before, but I never
knowed yore 1)a to do a dishonest act
till he htad that fall an' hturt his head.
I read int the Index t'other day whar a
good man had got a lick in thte head
ant' it made a demon out o' himt till the
doctors operated on hinm an' cured '1m.
Oh, George, it may be that ai-way in
yore pa's case, ant' thetm twelve men

night miade life unbearable for us all,
but thte chain gang wasn't the place for
a man in his condition."
Shte had pushted back her bonnet and
her gray eyes were flashing rebellious.
ly. George wad deeply moved.
"Thtat's right, tmothter," he said ad.
miritngly, htis fine face aglow, "stick to
him. I remember, when I was a very
little fellow, that ho was. kintd and gen
tle with me, and although lhe treated
mue pretty badly after I grew up I never
could forgot .that period. Yes, you
must go to him and do all you can for
his comfort. I'll pay for it."
"Oh,. George, George!" the old wom
an cried, standing up. "It don't senm
right for you to"
"1 want to do it, mother," he said
simtply and firmly. "You must take the
night train, and rememiber, you are te
spare no expense."
"I said I felt relieved to have 'im go
off," whimpered -Mrs. Buckley, "but
after awhile I missed '1m, an' of I could
'a' had 'i m back without the responsi
bility of what he'd do I'd 'a' beoen
willin'. Whnme 'n' '1m got married
picked yore pa out of a thousand men.
I was so proud of 'im, an' was the hap
piest woman alive for several years
after you was born. George, of he gita
well and servos his time out I think iso
'ni' '1m had better move otf somers
wvhar we.don't conflict with yore inter
ests, I see my duty clearer now. 'I'll
~stick to 'im fer better or worse as' long
as me or 'im lives."
George Buckley's head sank for an
instant, then he looked - up and -gage
at her tentderly.
"There is nothing, .mother, that .can
keep mne fronm being with you and him.
When his time is out we'll all live to

pmoitnt. ie's a convict, and I wvant
things differetnt, but he's my'father and
you are mhy mthter, antd that settles it."
Thte old womian started. away. She
had reached the door, but .turned haek
and stood near him. "George," she
said huskily, "you are a good boy," and
thten she slowly walked away,

afternoon ready for her trahti, and as

his emotion. "But let's not talk about

live in absolutely different worlds."
"No, you don't, nuthor," said Mrs.
Buckley. "She's jest a good, natural,

"Is this [Hillyer's warehouse?" he
"Yes," said George. "Anything I can

"I know of him," George responded.

"Oh, it's in thar? WVell, I reckon it's

about furtivelj, camne out into the open
to ny.et h im.
Oeorge had considerable work to do
that night in the office. The safe was
already closed and the front and rear
doors of the building were locked and
burred. Countrymen often came about
the warehouse early in the evening,
and, as he wished to be undisturbed, he
closed the door to keep them from
knowing he was there. He also closed
the heavy -wooden shutters of the front

midnight. Suddenly he detected a
outnd like the crunching of a grain of
w.he'at under foot, anud, looking round,
he siw three nien standing behind him
with leveled revolvers.
-What does this mean?" he ahked,
h)s eyes fixed on the rigid face of the
manwho he(, recognized as his visitor
of that afternoon. "Is this a trap?"
"That's about the size of it, young
man," was the cool reply. "Now, you
keep yore sent on that stool an' don't

I got a gut that's powerful easy on trig

finger up. Don't shoot 'In. Bill, till
I've give 'im a chnnce."
"What is it you want?" George asked,
t He was not frightened, but the situa
'tion certainly .was a grave one, and
iehe felt that he had little, if any, chance
for his life.
"We are-mountain hoosiers," said the
leader of the men, "but we hain't fools
by a long shot. We know our business
as well as you know yore'n, an' thar's
no need tellin' you of you don't git a
move on yoreself an' open that safe
you'll never open it ag'in."
"That's it, then?"
"Yes, that's it. This Is one time when
you've got to knuckle ur git the wust

needn't expect the night watchman to
be paciln' along by here. le's dead
drunk. I know, kase I furnished the
liquor an' seed it take effect."
"So you think you can fox, e me into
this thing," said George. "Do you
know, I'd rather die right here than
let you rob that safe while it is in my
"Oh, come off; you are'no fool, Buck
ley. Open the safe. We are not here
to palaver. At -least Say :positive
whether you will or not. I'll jest give
you sixty seconds by that clock up
thar. Boys, of he don't open the safe
in one minute from now pull down on
'in an' don't miss fer all you do. You'd
ruther die, had you, Buckley? Well,
-we'll see if that's so or not. He's a
t'hip oft'n the old block, boys. is
daddy couldn't keep his hands off'n
other folks' things, an' his life wasn't
at stake. He'll wilt, all right."
"So that's the reason you thought I'd
.glve .in," soid George, now quite pale,
his lips quivering.
., "Well, that's one reason," said the
man. "But what's the use o' talkin'?
Time is passin'. Jest another halt min
ute, boys. Git ready. lie may be fool
enough to want to defy us."
Hundreds of thoughts flashed through
George .Bucliley's brain. There was,
indeed, a large amount of money in
the safe, and thousands of dollars of
it belonged to poor people w%,ho had
brought it to him and Hlillyer in abso
lute faith as to its security. Could lhe
gIve up their money to save his own
life, andl
"Another quarter," said the leader of
the meni. "I'll count six, anid of he

together. Listen! That's the 12 o'clock
train. Fire jest as it's puasa', boys.
WVe won't take no resk on the sound

George heard the coining .trajin. 'rho
rumnble of it was felt in the w~alls of
the bitilding. The mountaineer was
measuring its approach by counting
slowly: "One-two-three-four"'
"Put down your guns," said George
Buckley. "No man can expect another
to sacrifice -his life for a little money.
I've done the' best I can. I'ut down
your guns."
"That's the talk, young feller. Yoti
are no fool. For a minute you tuck
this thing so durn cool I thought you
wvas goini' to commit suicide. But keep
'im coveredl, boys. We dlon't take no
chnnces on him, nur no other chap."
"You needn't he afraid," said George,
wvith .a cold, hard smile. "You fellows
are simply too much for me. 'Theay say
every maon las his price; I reckon
you'll give me part of the money. I
wanit to leave( the c'ountr-y. They wvill
all say3 I was concerned in it-because
of amy father. Is that understood-I'm
to get par't?"
"Yes, that's understood," said the
leader eagerly. "Boys, we'll .have to
divide with 'im-he's the right sort."
The traini rattled by. George left his
stool and went to the safe. With a
hand that gleamed like that of a dead
man's in the lamplight, lie twirled the
combinatoion bolt back and forth; then
lhe suddenly turned to them, passing
his hand wearily over his brow.
"Look here," ho said, "I'll have to
confess that you've rattled me.I

of the combination have slipped my

"You can't come that ona us. Boys, hie's

"Ihold on!" George held up his hand,
still smiling mechanically. "Don't 07

combination in a few minutes if you'll
only take those blasted giups off nie
and stand back. I'mi not ma*de of
stone. Ihow can a sman get his mind
on a thing like that while you are

me a minute to collect myself-to think
