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

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.

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

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-

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

The old man was not in the room.
She must have caught his eyes search

"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.

Englishman Who Died in 1680 Proved
That It Was Possible to Eke

Thomas F. Curby, the champion

dinner consisted of thirteen lobsters,
sixty eggs, and one hundred oysters.

The English preacher, Stephen Jenk

Sunday while .reading as the Scripture

him trouble. "At what time ye hear

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

It was the Italian physicist Salvlonl
who devised a microbalance of such
extreme delicacy that It clearly dem
onstrates the loss of weight of musk
by volatilization. Thus the Invisible
perfume floating off In the air Is In
directly weighed. The essential part
of the apparatus Is a very thin thread
of glass fixed at one end and extended
horizontally. The microscopic objects
to be weighed are placed upon the
glass thread near its free end and' the
amount of flexure produced is ob
served with a miscroscope magnifying
100 diameters. A mote weighing one
thoúsandth of a milligram perceptibly
bends the thread. '

DOUBLE TREATMENT IS BEST
Serum May Be Satisfactory for Short
Fattening Period Immunity

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
