A xAiup Gf the: flaiwood5 COPYRIGHT BV TrtE CHAPTER IX Continued. --13 Jumping lightly from rock to rock . In the shallow water of the pool, the bandit approached the cataract, the, third leap landing him upon the flat top of a rock almost within the very wash of the falling water. Pausing an Instunt to pull his bat tight and turn up the collar of his coat, he snranc straicht Into the thin blade of the falls. His leap must have car ried him comnletelv through to the other side. It was the first the Pearl "hunter knew, or even suspected, that there was an open space beyond. So completely did the falling Water hide everything back of It that probably he diud whp had Just leaped and the man who watched him were the only two who knew there was any thing back of It. The Pearlhunter stretched himself flat under cover of a clump of sprouts growing about an old white oak stump, and kept his eyes fixed on the waterfall. Time goes slowly to one who -'watches and waits.. It was probably not more than ten minutes, though It seemed far longer, when, without so much as a diverted fleck of spray In warning, the waterfall flung forth up on the flat-topped rock a lithe and ac tive figure that sprang lightly to shore over the two Intervening stones. Pausing on the brink of the pool barely long enough to shake his coat by the lapels acd to knock his hat against his hand, he immediately set out along the bluffs toward the vil lage, as unconcerned as If he had not Just pulled ou about the most sensa tional stunc ever seen by a Flatwoods- man. The Pearlhunter slipped out of the cover and softly followed; trailed him up the bluffs, through th corner of the woods and out to the river road where it angles north through the cut In the cliffs : listened at the fence, near where the path crossed it, till the re ceding steps were well on their way to the village. CHArT C.K A. The Candle in the Cranny. All the way back to Fallen Rock the Pearlhunter pondered the scene he had gazed on through the chink in the cabin wall: the man's transfigured .face: his Hctlons with the picture that ' above all the picture. It puzzled him. angered him. That such a mau should have her pk-ture; his mother with the darkly beautiful face and wonder ful eyes warm against his breast! It was another reason why be should ' hunt him down. . The Pearlhunter was as brave as the woods make them but it Is no dis credit to his manhood to say that his blood ran a little faster as he stepped down off the rock Into the water and waded through the falls. Every Inch of the way had to be feit out with his fingers before his feet could be trusted to follow. The roar of the falls had dulled a little when suddenly a sound came out of the dark Just ahead a sound like n garment "rubbing against some rough surface. . The Pearlhunter stepped to one side of the passage and flattened himself against the wall. Out of the dead silence the sound oume again. A grin loosened his fa.. The very sound he had half expected a horse contentedly munching ills hay. The Pearlhunter -ramé out from against tiie wall an-jf inched his way deeper Into the blackness of the pass age. It abruptly widened until he was fio longer able to reach from one wall to 1 the other with his outstretched arms. Though denied the use of his yes. he knew that the passage broad ly expanded Just there and became a cave. He stood in the very entrance of It. . The next step there was no help for it light ! Desperate and danger ous the first spark, and the cave might spring to life. Still, it was bet ter than to stumble over a sleeping luan ; or walk Into a knife. With his revolver balanced, his face to the open tuve, he reached his left hand along tie wall to the farthest stretch of his arm, bringing his body as far as possi ble from the light, and with hfs fin gers fumbled out a spot suitably i-mooth and dry for there must be no failure. The match scraped. A tiny flume leaped away . from the rock. It lighted up the place surprisingly. Tiie cave was not large hardly twice the size of an ordinary room. The first swift glance showed him that except for the horse It was empty. The stub of a candle caught his eye, stuck by its own tallowto an out standing stool of shale Just beyond the mouth of the passage.' He crossed the passage and held the match to the wick.. In the better light he studied the place more closely. The cave could not have 'been far below the trround. for an ouk root had found its way through the wall. It was to this that the horse was tied. For a moment he was strongly tempted to 6tay where he was till his prey returned the following night and then rid the Flatwoods of him, and trust what evidence he already had to prove his case. i But a better plan had been forming ever since he caine Into the cave, and there was much yet to be done ; though the cave would have made a good hid ing place during the coming day al ways provided the bandidt did not chance to return lefore his time. Selecting a spot that he Judged to bo BQSBS-MERRJUL COMPANY about right for the take-off, he leaped at the falls, and. half to bis surprise, funded on the flat rock outside. It was like breaking through the crust of creation Into a Dew world. Mar veling at the small amount of water that had clung to him, be sprang over the two Intervening rocks to the shore. He hurried around to the front of the cabin, raised the latch, entered and closed the door. Snatching up some cold biscuits and strips of fried bacon, he hurriedly made six sand wiches and stuffed them into his pock ets. Resting at the spring long enough to eat two of his sandwiches, be drained a gourd of water, crossed the branch below the falls and hurried away up the bluffs into the deep woods. A mile and more north of the wa terfall. Wolf Run bends west to dou- ble and twist and loop through a tan gle of hills and gulches known as Fox Den, the wildest and most Inaccessi ble district of the Flatwoods. The Pearlhunter had heard of the place. tie resolved to take his chances there. The spot was no great distance above the three-gabled cabin. Away up the bare front of a cliff his eye lighted on the mouth of what ap peared to be a cleft la the rock. Wolf Run washed against a narrow ledge at the very foot of this cliff. He spread himself flat against the face of the rock and strained from crevice to crev ice. It was a prodigious task, but all tasks have an end either at the bot tom or at the top. The Pearlhunter's task finally ended at the top. It had to. The strata gaped apart half the height of a man, leaving a wide-open scar in the face of the cliff. It was per haps 'ten feet deep, and seemed to be closed at-the back by the dipping to gether of the two strata. Rolling back as far within the open ing as the converging strata would comfortably allow, he-dropped his bat tered head upon his arm to sleep the rest of the night away. The Pearlhunter waked with the woods. His limbs and breast and shoulders were sn sore that he was He Leaped at the Falls . . . Landed on the Flat Rock. and half glad for the snug place to lie In. like a fox In his burrow, while the hounds beat up the woods at fault Lack of water was the greatest drawback. Thirst was already begin ning to annoy him. He took out his sandwiches and ate two more of them, saving the other two until later In the day. The salty bacon made the wa ter more tempting stllL He drew back a little space from the brink of the ledge out of sight of it. The sound of It still tempted him. Voices reached him suddenly, break ing upon the silence from around a sharp turn of the gorge down stream. He drew his face back from the brink of the ledge and lay listening. It was far too risky to look. His ears made out three of them three tongues, all going at top speed, a sure sign that eyes and ears were not as busy as they might have been. Opposite the cliff where the fugitive lay, the steps stopped. "What's that hole up there?" It wits a gruff and heavy voice that' asked, thick still with the flare of tem per that had not yet cooled. "Wolf den, more'n likely," answered one of the others. "If we wus up th' bluff cross there furnlnst the hole, we could see In," suggested a voice. The other voices grunted; and the Pearlhunter heard them hopping back across the stream, heard them clawing their way through the tangled under brush up the opposite bluff. The scar In which he lay dipped slightly to ward the rear. He rolled back as far as possible, so as to have the protec tion afforded by the slightly higher edge; stretched himself on his right side; and waited for them to come Into view. Fortunately the sun hit their side of the gorge, and the Pearlhunter could see them well, while, being on Mi the shady side, and back In the e"ark ness of the scar, they could not see him at all. The three of them drew together in consultation. The Pearl hunter could not make out their words, but the manner in which they handled their rifles, which they had managed to drag up with them, Indicated only too plainly the general drift of what was being said. With a final nod all around, they faced the pocket, and one of them raised his rifle. The bullet struck the roof of the scar Just In front of him. showering him with dust and bits of shale. The second fired. The bullet passed close to his eet and lost It self far back In the crevice where the two strata of shale converged. It was now the third one's turn There came the hot spit of smoke; the vicious slap of the report. But even before he saw the one, or heard the other,' he felt something like a red coal sting his side Just under the armpit. His side! A thousand flames had got at It. Sora thing warm and sticky ran down under his tattered shirt and made It mussy. The flames reaciod his face and twisted It. The air seemed to forsake the pocket. He crawleu to the front of the scar. He couldn't take his eyes away from the water glancing along at the oot of the cliff. The flames had scorched him dry. If he could only have one sup of the water to moisten his lips so that the breath could get through He crawled a little nearer the open ing; held his face out over the ledge. The ledge seemed to be rocking op and down ; the trees were dipping and going around In a queer whirl that made him dizzy. He had never known trees to act like that. The tops of the gorge were bending together. The gorge came together slowly shut out the all? shut out the sky. CHAPTER XI. Only the Hunted Know. For a long time the Pearlhunter lay wondering why the gorge didn't fall In. While he lay and wondered, an other strange thing- happened the very strangest of alL The top of the gorge began to open opened and let In two little patches of sky. He kept his eyes on them two little spots of blue set between clouds of pink and gold. The gorge top opened wider. He- came back to the two patches of sky; smiled oddly they had transfigured; had become the eyes of the Wild Rose. The shooting had brought her. ' Her arm was under his head, and she was saying something. A tinge of crimson deepened the pink In her cheeks when his eyes came open. What If he had heard! But she met his eyes with frank directness. He lay looking up at her a long time; trying to compre hend it all ; the wonder of It ! that she was there! . She helped him edge a little nearer the brink of the ledge, raised him, and he drank out of her cupped palm. Whether it was the cup, he drank from, or the thirst that parched him, he took no thought, but it was the sweetest drink that ever passed his lips. She eased him back upon the ledge, her arm still under his head. A strand of her hair fell upon his face. She tried to shake it off. He put up his hand and covered it. Her eyes dropped to his wounded side, ' "I didn't know he was the Red Mask." she said, as If in pursuance of his first remark, "till those men came this morning." Her next words were low and thought ful. "I've wondered If It could have been he that hurt Daddy?" "It was him." The girl's breath quickened. He saw her fingers clench. But there was much to do. Her eyes turned again to his blood-stained gar ments, and she set about uncovering the wounded side. There was little enough to remove a shred or two of tattered shirt; a laying back of the torn blouse. After the first start at sight of the wound she became curl ously thoughtful. The color mounted to her face ; he tried to meet her eyes, but they turned away. "Can you spare me for a minute?" For answer he lifted his head. She took away her. arm, eased him back upon the rock, and he heard her light step as she sprang around an angle of the cliff. She was gone barely more than the minute asked for. When she returned she was carrying In her hands a num ber of strips bandages of white cloth. Where she got them well, that's her secret. The bullet had cut a deep, ragged gash Just below the armpit. It had grazed a rib, but seemingly had not broken it. With that encouraging fact established, and the sting of the wound much allayed, the mind of the man began reaching forward to the night; the all-Important night when a certain suave individual in a frock coat would come to feed a certain horse. He said no word of this to the girl already binding the bandages around the clean-washed wound. She would have scouted the bare sugges tion of the things he was, planning to do the moment the dark was sufficient ly dense to hide him. She drew what was left of his tat tered shirt and blouse over the ban dage at last, laid his wounded arm across his breast and slung It there by a strip of cloth passed up around his neck, and helped him to his feet. It shamed him that he was abso lutely compelled to cling fast to her, to lean heavy upon her, or go back to the rock. His face was far too white to show the mortification he felt, but she saw It In his eyes. Lifting his well arm and laying it across her shoulders, she caught her left arm about his blouse waist and steadied him. The Wild Rpse seemed to have tak- . - 1 . . m I- 1 ,1,. en toll or every dii oí uusuiub ui ever struck the Flatwoods. That was the distinguishing feature of her per sonality. That and her good, sound sense. Her face was beaming full of both right now the sunshine and the sense. She was smiling up at him, he ) knew. He was staring away above her head but he knew. The smile grad ually drew his eyes down out of the trees. He could no more help It than he could help leaning upon her. She laughed a heartening little laugh like the hanpy water tnrllng against the ledge. He laughed back. He couldn't help It. The restraint was broken ; the smart gone. He glanced down at the ledge before leaving to see' that no tell-tale blood spots or bits of cloth were left. A needless precaution her woodcraft was as fine as his own. How she managed to lead him, half carry him, out of the rocky and brok en gulches of Fox Den and down the rough banks of Wolf Run to the cabin of the three gables she never knew, i .... 1 c"oer oiu ne. it always remained a matter of wonder to him. Who does know the source of power that mys terious augmentation of strength that comes to a woman In a crisis? She led him Into the house and to 7- Í !?, ,a 6 maIn r0m; the qUeer - i"a-iucreu uni HI" I I1UU stirred his curiosity the afternoon ol his first visit" two days before. The old man was not in the room. She must have caught his eyes search ing for him. "Daddy y she answered to the eyes. "He often spends hours away. There'll be little pass In the woods today that he won't see, though nobody will see him. Poor Daddy!" "We'll send for that surgeon tomor row," he said. - She was back In a moment; carrying a pan of water, fresh bandages, and a formidable-looking brown bottle cam phor, the universal first aid In the Flatwoods. The blood-soaked ban dages were deftly removed and the wound re-washed. She picked ud the brown bottle. "I am sorry to hurt you," she said. "But It will keep the fever down." "You're the doctor," wast his slow answer. She uncorked the bottle and applied some of Its contents to the wound with a bit of cotton. Hurt ! It hurt so that he laughed. "Anything to get ready for tonight," be grinned, under the bite of the pow erful antiseptic. "Tonight 1" she repeated blankly, "Why, you mustn't think " "I must, though. Big things depend on tonight." She saw a sternness gather in his eyes. "He'll think Tve left the Flatwoods," he muttered on, more to himself than to her. "It's what he's been waiting for. His game ! tonight ! and I" The girl saw the fingers of his right hand clench against his palm doubt less quite unconsciously while the knotted ridges of his great forearm bunched and swelled; but the full meaning of, the muttered words hap pily missed her. (TO BE CONTINUED.) LIVED LONG ON FRUGAL DIET Englishman Who Died in 1680 Proved That It Was Possible to Eke Out Existence Cheaply. Thomas F. Curby, the champion eater of Massachusetts, declared that dyspepsia is the result of eating too little, and not too much. His Sunday dinner consisted of thirteen lobsters, sixty eggs, and one hundred oysters. At the other end of the scale must be placed old Roger Crab, the first vege tarian, who- died September 11, 1680, after proving that a man could live on 75 cents a year. Originally a hab erdasher in a big way of business at Chesham. England, a free liver and drinker of strong ales, he "got re ligion" also dyspepsia In middle life, sold his stock, gave the proceeds to the poor, and took to living in a hut on three-farthings a week. Instead of "strong drinks and wines," he says in his autobiography, "I give the old man' be lived two centuries too soon to call It "Little Mary" "a cup of water; and. Instead of roast mutton, rabbit with bran, and pudding made with bran and turnip-leaves chopped together." And on this diet he lived to a ripe old age. surviving repeated cudgeling and imprisonment for witchcraft. - Clerical Expedient. ' The English preacher, Stephen Jenk ins, was not a highly educated man, but he had a native wit which often helped him out of difficulties. One Sunday while .reading as the Scripture lesson the third chapter of Daniel, he came to a batch of words that gave him trouble. "At what time ye hear the sound o'f the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer," etc. Now this list of Instruments Is repeated sev eral times In the chapter, and the sec ond time he stumbled through It with even greater difficulty than the first Before he reached it again, however, he had discovered a way of escape. So the third time he relieved both him self and his listeners by reading with the utmost gravity, "And the band played as before." Boston Transcript Tying the Knot The performance of the marriage ceremony is often spoeen or as "ty ing the knot" The expression may be of comparatively recent origin, a figurative phrase referring to the fact that the contracting parties are united or bound together in wedlock. Quite as reasonable a supposition Is that It has come down from the ancient Babylonians. At any rate It was the custom in old Babylonia for the priest who offi ciated at the wedding to take a thread from the garment of the bride and one from a garment of the groom. He-ocould .then knot the two together and present them to the orlde, a sym bol of the matrimonial tie Joining her and her husband. Weighing a Perfume.

The serum treatment alone will not bring permanent immunity from hog cholera. It may be satisfactory for a short fattening period. But for the farm herd It is necessary to give the double treatment which consists of the virus and the serum. It It general ly understood that a hog that has once recovered from a case of cholera Is permanently Immune. This Immunity Is the result of the formation in the body of the animal of anti-bodies which are antagonistic to the disease germs. For hogs that have been ex posed to the disease or that may take It It is necessary to use the virus which gives the animal the disease in slight form. The serum which Is then Injected combats the disease germs and assists the body in resist ance.

"On a lake," said Daddy, "which was frozen over, were many little huts. There th fishermen fish through . the holes In the Ic which they would make during the winter. The fist huts were made so as to protect them against the hard cold, and the great cold winds. "The Sun had gone to bed rath er wearily. He had had a lazy sort of day. r.e had not been shin ing very much. He had come out From Hut to Hut. at times Just to look things over, but he had spent a great deal of time napping. " T feel as I feel on the warm sum mer days,' he said, before he went to bed, 'when I am lazy and when I let Lady Gray Clouds spread her grayness over' the water and the boats and the sky above. " Tve felt that very way today, and Lady Gray Clouds has been out a good deal, trying on her many gray suits and gowns of which she is very proud.' " 'But, said one of the Sun's daugh ters, who had come along for a min ute's chat, T promised to give a tea party for some friends this afternoon. I told them I would give them our finest sunbeam tea.' " Well, Mr. Sun said, 'then I will shine for awhile. "'I don't see, his daughter said, why you feel today as you used to feel on the warm days In the summer. Certainly it is far from being warm today. " 'True, true,' said Mr. Sun, "but then I am always warm, And what I meant was not quite that this day had been like a summer's day, but that I had felt the same lazy way that I do some times on a summer day the same sort of laziness, in other words.' "Mr. Sun kept his promise and his daughter gave a tea party. The sky was red and speckled with gray and the sunset was very lovely. " We did have some sunshine after alL and a beautiful sunset,' the people had all said. As I told you before, the sun had gone to bed when the brownies came along to give their supper party In the fish huts. "They used every hut you see. And this Is how they did It 'They had soup in one hut and salad In another and creamed chicken in another, and hot chocolate In still another and so on. They went from one hut to the other for the different courses of their meal. And as they went from hut to hut what laughter there was, what merry sounds rang through the cold night air. "'Of-course, said Billle Brownie, the fishermen didn't build these huts for us, but it Is nice to be able to use them for our party. 'As we never leave any crumbs be hind or any sign at all that we have been here, It Is quite all right They would not mind, 1 feel quite sure. "'So do I.' said Bennle Brownie. "And then they hugged each other and fell over as they so often did when they hugged each other, and that was very often, too. They had the finest sort of a sup per and what fun It was to go from one little hut to he other, over the frozen lake. What stories they did tell as they sat In the different huts eating. "And when the meal was all over. and they had eaten all they possibly could, they packed up what was left and sent It down the different holes for the fishes. " 'Some free food,' they said. 'and we won't catcfi you or try to, either!' "Of course they didn't send the fishes some of the food they had had because they knew the fishes wouldn't enjoy It, and besides they had eaten every thing up which Free.
