At Thornton Fair child's death hla son Robert learns there has been a dark period In his father's life which for almost thirty years has caused him suffer ing. The secret Is hinted at In a document left by the elder Falr chlld. which also Informs Robert he Is now owner of a mining claim ' In Colorado, and advising him to re Henry Beamish, a lawyer. Beamish tells Robert his claim, a silver mine. Is at Ohadl. thirty-, eight miles from Denver. He also warns him against a certain man. "Squint" Rodalne, his father's en emy. Robert decides to go to Ohadl. On the road to Ohadl from Denver Falrchlld assists a girl, apparently In a frensy of haste, to change a tire on her auto. When she has left, the sheriff and a posse appear. In pursuit of a bandit. Falrchlld. be wildered, misleads them as to the direction the girl had taken. At Ohadl Falrchlld Is warmly greeted "by "Mother" Howard, boardtng house keeper, for his father's sake. From Mother Howard Falrchlld learns something of the mystery connected with the disappearance of "Slssie" Uimh. his father's co worker in the mine. He meets the srlrl be had assisted, but she denies her Identity. She Is Anita Rich mond. Judze Richmond's daughter. Visiting his claim. Falrchlld is shadowed by a man he recognises from descriptions as "Squint" Ro dalne. Back In Ohadl. his father's old friend. Harry Harklns. a Cor p.bhman. summoned from England by Beamish to help Fair-hlld. halls him with Joy. The pair find the mine flooded and have not suffi cient funds to have It pumped dry. Iitor In the day "Squint" Rodalne announces that he practically saw Ha-klns fall into the flooded mine, and evidently Is drowned. Harklns being a general favorite, the entire population turns out to clear the flooded mine. CHAPTER VIII Continued. Falrc-Jilld turned at the entrance of the mine and waited for the first of the minors and the accompanying Kleam of his carbide. Then they went within and to the shaft, the light shining downward upon the oily, black water below. Two- objects floated there, a broken piece of timber, torn from the side of the shaft where someone evidently had grasped hastily at It In an effort to stop a fall, and new, fonr-dented hat, gradually be coming water-soaked and sinking slowly beneath the surface. And then, for theflrst time, fear clutched at Falrchlid's heart fear which hope could not Ignore. "There's his liat." It was a miner staring downward. Falrchlld had seen It, but he strove to pat aside the thought. "True." he answered, "but anyone could lose a hat, simply by looking over the edge of the shaft. ITasry's a strong man. Certainly he would know how to swim. And In any event he should have been able to have kept aAoat for at least a few minutes. Ro dalne says that he heard a shout and ran right in here; but all that he could s-e was milled water and a float ing hat. I " Then he paused sud denly. It had come to him thnt Ho daine might have helped in the demise of Harry! Shouts sounded from outside, and the roaring of a motor truck as It made its slow, tortuous way up the boulder-strewn road with its gullies and innumerable ruts. Voices came, rumbling and varied. Lights. Gain ing the mouth of the tunnel, Falrchlld could see a mnss of shadows outliord by the carbides, all following the lead ership of a small, excited man. Sum Ilerlienfelder, stlH seeking his dia mond. The big pump from the Argonaut tunnel was aboard the truck, which was followed by two other auto ve hicles, each loaded with gasoline en gines and smaller pumps. A hundred men were in the crowd, all equipped I with ropes and bu-.'kets. Snm Herben-1 felder's pleas had been heard. The' search was about to begin for the i body of Harry and the diamond that j circled one finger. And Falrchlld has-: tened to do his part. ' Until fur into the night they worked end strained to put the big pump into position ; while crews of men, four aud five In a group, bailed water as fist as possible, that the aggregate might be lessened to the greatest possible ' extent before the pumps, with their hows, were attached. Then the gaso line engines began to snort, gre-.it leagths ot tubing were let down Into '.he shaft, and spurting water started down the mountain side as the task of uiiwatering the shaft began. But It was a slow job. Morning found the distance to the wnter length ened by twenty to thirty feet, and the bucket brigndes nearly at the end of their rope. Men trudged down the hills to breakfast, sending others In ihelr places. Falrchlld stayed on to meet Mother Howard and assuage her nervousness as best he could, dividing sis time between her and the task be fore him. Noon found more water tli 11 11 ever tumbling down the hills the smaller pumps were working now n unison with the larger one. After noon and most f Ohadi was there. Falrchlld could distinguish the form f Ai.Ita Kii.'hulo:nl in the hundreds of wiien mid men e'ustered about the opening t the tunnel, and for once she whs not in the company of Man rice Itodaine. He hurried to her ard she smiit'd at his approach. "Have they fousd anything yet?" "Nothing so far. Except that there is, plenty f water In the shaft. Vm t.ying not to helit-ve It." "I hope It isn't true." Her voice was lew and serious. "Fatlsr was talking to me HlM:t you. And we hoped yoa two would suc-ifol this time." Evidently her ather had told her aiore than she cured to relate. Fair IJd eaiirM the Ir.flectlon in her voice ct dUrcavsa It. ME cm, "I owe you an apology," he said bluntly. "For what?" "Last night I couldn't resist It I forgot for a moment that you were there. But I I hope that you'll be lieve me to be a gentleman, In spite of It She smiled up at him quickly. "I already have had proof of that I I am only hoping that yon will be lieve me well, that you'll forget some thing." "Ton mean " "Yes," she countered quickly, as though to cut off his explanation.- "It seemed like a great deal. Yet It was nothing at all. I would feel much hap pier If I were sure you had disre garded It." Falrchlld looked at her for a long time, studying her with his serious blue eyes, wondering about many things, wishing that he knew more of women and their ways. At last be said the thing that he felt the straight forward outburst of a straightforward man: "You're not going to be offended If I tell you something?" "Certainly not" . "The sheriff came along Just after you had made the turn. He was look ing for an auto bandit." "A what?" She stared at him with wide-open, almost laughing eyes. "But you don't believe " "He was looking for a man," said Falrchlld quietly. "I I told him that I hadn't seen anything but a boy. I was willing to do that then because I couldnt believe that a girl like you would " Then he stumbled and halt ed. A moment he sought speech while she smiled up at him. Then out It came: "I I don't care what It was. I I like you. Honest I do. I liked you so much when I was changing that tire that I didn't even notice It when you put the money In my band. I well, you're not the kind of a girl who would do anything really wrong. It might be a prank or something like thnt but It wouldn't be wrong. So so there's an end to It" Agnin she laughed softly. In a way tantalizing to Robert Falrchlld, as though she were making game of him. "What do you know about women?" she asked finally, and Falrchlld told the truth. "Nothing." "Then" the laugh grew heartier, finally, however, to die away. The girl put forth her hand. "But I won't say what I was going to. It wouldn't sound right I hope that I I live up to your estimation of me. At least I'm thankful to you for being the man you are. And I won't forget I" And once more her hand had rested In his a small, warm, caressing thing In spite of the purely casual grasp of an impersonal action. Again Rob ert Falrchlld felt a thrill that was new to him, and he stood watching her un til she had reached the motor car which had brought her to the big curve, and had faded down the hill. Then he went back to assist the sweat ing workmen and the anxious-faced Sara Herbenfelder. The water was down seventy feet. That night Robert Falrchlld sought a few hours' sleep. Two days after the town still divided Its attention be tween preparation for the Old Times dance and the progress In the dewater lng of the Blue Poppy shaft. Now and then the long hose was withdrawn, and dynamite lowered on floats to the surface of the water, far below, a cop per wire trailing It A push of the plunger, a detonation, and a wait of long moments; It accomplished noth ing, and the pumping went on. If the earthly remains of Harry Harklns were below, they steadfastly refused to come to the surface. The water had fallen to the level of the drift, two hundred feet down; the pumps now were working on the main flood which still lay below. A day more and a day after that The wnter was now only a few feet high In the shaft; It meant that the whole great openiag, together with the drift tunnel, soon would be dewatered to an extent sufficient to permit of exploration. Again the "motor cars ground up the narrow roadway. Out side the tunnel the crowds gathered. Falrchlld saw Anita Richmond and gritted his teeth at the fact that young Rodalne accompanied Jier. Farther In the background, narrow eyes watch ing closely, was Squint Rodalne. .And still farther Falrchlld gasped as he noticed the figure plodding down the mountain side. He put out a hand, then, seizing the nervous Herbenfelder by the shoulder, whirled him around. "Look I" he exclaimed. "Look there I Didn't I tell you! Didn't I have a hunch T' For, coming toward them jauntily, slowly, was a figure In beaming blue, a Fedora on his head now, but with tie rest of his wardrobe intact, yellow, bump-toed shoes and iH. Someone shouted. Everybody turned. And as they did so, the figure hastened Its pace. A moment later, a booming voice sounded, the unmistakable voice of Harry Harkins: "I sye! What's the matter over there? Did somebody fall in?" The puffing of gasoline engines ceased. A moment more and the gur gling cough of the pumps was stilled, while the shouting and laughter of a great crowd sounded through the hills. A leaping form went forward, Sam Herbenfelder. to seize narry, to pat him ana paw him, as though in assur ance that he really was alve, then to rrasp wildly at the ring on his finger, i'.ut Harry waved him aside. "Ain't I paid the installment on It?" he remonstrated. "What's the rum pus?" Falrchlld, with Mother Howard, both laughing happily, was just behind Her benfelder. And behind them was thronging half of Ohadl. "We thought you were drowned !" "Me?" Harry's laughter boomed again. In a way that was Infectious. "Me drowned. Just because I let a 'oiler and dropped my "at?" "You did It on purpose?" Snm Her benfelder shook a scrawny fist under Harry's nose. The big Cornlshman waved It aside as one would brush away an obnoxious fly. Then he grinned at the townpeople about him. "Well," he confessed, "there was an un'oly lot of water In there, and I didn't 'ave any money. What else was I to do?" "You I" A pumpman had picked up a piece of heavy timbering and thrown It at him In mock ferocity. "Work ns o death and then come back and give us the laugh I Where you been at?" "Center City," confessed Harry cheerily. "And you knew all the time?" Mother Howard wagged a finger under his nose. "Well." and the Cornlshman chuck led, "I didn't 'ave any money. I 'ad to get that shaft unwatered, didn't I?" "Get a rail I" An Irate but laugh ing pumpman had come forward. "Think you can pull that on us? Get a rail !" Someone seized a small, dead pine which lay on the ground near by. Others helped to strip It of the scrag gly limbs which still slung to It Harry watched them and chuckled for he knew that In none was there malice. He had played his Joke and won. It was their turn now. Shout ing In mock anger, calling for all dire things, from lynchlngs on down to burnings at the stake, they dragged Harry to the pine tree, threw him astraddle of It then, with willing hands volunteering on every side, hoisted the tree high above them and started down the mountain side, Sam Herbenfelder trotting In the rear and forgetting his anger In the Joyful knowledge that his ring at last was safe. Behind the throng of men with their mock threats trailed the women and children, some throwing pine cones at the booming Harry, Juggling him self on the narrow pole; and in the crowd, Falrchlld found someone he could watch with more than ordinary Interest Anita Richmond, trudging along with the rest apparently re monstrating with the sullen, mean vlsaged young man at her side. In stinctively Falrchlld knew that young Rodalne was not pleased with the re turn of Harkins. As for the father Falrchlld whirled at a voice by his side and looked straight Into the crooked eyes of Thornton Falrchlid's enemy. The blue-white scar had turned almost black now, the eyes were red from swollen, blood-stained veins, the evil, thin, crooked Hps were working In sullen fury. They were practically alone at the mouth of the mine. Fair child with a laugh dying on his lips, Rodalne with all the hate and anger and futile malice that a human being can know typified In hi9 scarred, hawk like features. A thin, taloned hand came upward, to double, leaving one bony, curved finger extending In em phasis of the words which streamed from the slit of a mouth: "Funny, weren't you? Played your cheap Jokes and got away with 'em. But everybody ain't like them fools!" he pointed to the crowd just rounding the rocks. Harry bobbing in the fore ground. "There's some that remera ber and I'm one of 'em. You've put over your fake; you've had your laugh; you've framed It so I'll be the butt of every numbskull In Ohadl. But "What's the Rumpus?" Just listen to this Just listen to this I" he repeated, the harsh voice taking on a tone that was almost a screech. "There's another time coming and that time's going to be mine!" And before Falrchlld could retort, he had turned and was scrambling down the mountain side. CHAPTER IX . Falrchlld went back Into the tunnel, spun the flywheels of the gasoline en gines .and started them revolving again, that the last of the water might be drained from .the shaft before the pumps must be returned to their own ers. x Several hours passed, then Harry returned, minus his gorgeous clothing and his diamond ring, dressed In min ing costume now, with high leather boots Into which his trousers were tucked, and carrying a carbine lantern. Dolefully he looked at the vacant fin ger where once a diamond had spar kled. Then he chuckled. CUT "Sam took It back," he announced. "And I took part of the money and paid It out for rent on these pumps. We can keep 'em as long as we want 'em. It's only costing about a fourth of what It might of. Drowning's worth something," he laughed again. Falrchlld Joined him, then sobered. "It brought Rodalne out of the bushes," he said. "Squint threatened us after they'd hauled you down town on the rail." Harry winked Jovially. "Ain't It just what I expected? It's better that wye than to 'ave 'Im snoop In around." They chuckled together then ; It was something to know that they had not only forced Squint Rodalne to show his enmity openly, but It was some thing more to make him the Instru ment of helping them with their work. Harry looked down the hole, stared Intently at nothing, then turned to the rusty hoist "'Ere's the thing we've got to fix up now. This 'ere chlv wheel's all out of gear." "What makes your face so red?" Falrchlld asked the question as the be-mustached visage of Harry came nearer to the carbide. Harry looked up. "Mother 'Oward almost slapped It off!" came his rueful answer. "For not telling 'er what I was going to do, and letting 'er think I got drownded. But 'ow was I to know?" Falrchlld absently examined the en gines nd pumps, supplying water to the radiators and filling an oil cup or two. Then he turned swiftly, voic ing that which was uppermost In his mind. "When you were here before, Harry, did you know a Judge Richmond?" Teh." Harry pawed his mustache and made a greasy, black mark on his face. "But I don't think I want to know 'im now." "Why not?" "'E's mixed up with the Rodalnes." "How much?" "They own 'lm that's all." There was silence for a moment It had been something which Falrchlld had not expected. If the Rodalnes owned Judge Richmond, how far did that ownership extend? After a long time, he forced himself to a statement "I know his daughter. She sold me a ticket to a dance," Falrchlld care fully forgot the earlier meeting. "Then we've happened to meet several times after that She said that her father had told her about me It seems he used to be a friend of my own father." Harry nodded. "So 'e was. And a good friend. But that was before things 'appened like they've 'appened In the last ten years. Not that I know about It of. my own knowledge. But Mother 'Oward she knows a lot" "But what's caused the change? What?" Harry's Intent gaze stopped him. "'Ow many times 'ave you seen Judge Richmond?" "I haven't ever seen him." "You won't If Mother 'Oward knows anything. 'E ain't able to get out. 'E's sick apoplexy a stroke. Rodalne's taken advantage of It" "How?" "'Ow does anybody take advantage of somebody that's sick? 'Ow does anybody get a 'old on a person? Through money! Judge Richmond 'ad a lot of It. Then 'e got sick. Ro dalne, 'e got 'old of that money. Now Judge Richmond 'as to ask 'Im for every penny he gets and 'e does what Rodalne says." "But a judge " "Judges Is like anybody else when they're bedridden and only 'arf their faculties working. The girl, so Mother 'Oward tells me, Is about twenty now. That made 'er just a little kid, and motherless, when Rodalne got In 'Is work. She ain't got a thing to sye. And she loves "er father. If 'e don't die pretty soon, you'll see a wedding !" "You mean ?" "She'll be Mrs. Maurice Rodalne. She loves 'er father enough to do It after 'er will's broken." Again Robert Falrchlld filled an oil cup, again he tinkered about the pumps. Then he straightened. "How are we going to work this mine?" he asked shortly. Harry stared at him. " " 'Ow should I know? You own It !" "I don't mean that way. We were fifty-fifty from the minute you showed DECREE GAVE REST FROM LABOR Saxon Monarch, a Thousand Years Ago, Instituted Custom of Satur day Half Holiday. A thousand years ago the Saxon King Edgar proclaimed a rest from all labor from the noon of Saturday till the dawn of Monday, and the same principle was emphasized by his suc cessors. The church was In those days the dominant factor In all social life, and the Saturday-to-Monday ordinance was doubtless it first IntendcJ to give the people full opportunities for going to church. Round the village church, too, gradually sprang up the Saturday mar ket for the cottagers, and so, though slowly, the Saturday holy day evolved Into a holiday. With the change from agriculture to Industrialism, people left the villages for the towns, and here for some time the Saturday half-holiday was endan gered In the rush and greed of the new-found and little understood "prog ress." A saner and more moderate outlook, however, restored the Satur day half-holiday. But curiously enough, the towns claimed It as a new Invention of thir own. Ignoring the village life whiuh, long centuries back. By Courtney Ryley Cooper Copyright by Little, Brown at C up. There never has been any othet thought In my mind "Fifty-fifty? You're making me a bloated capitalist!" "I hope I will. Or rather, I hope that you'll make such a thing possible for both of us. But I was talking about something else; are we going to work hard and fight It out day and night for awhile until we can get things clear, or are we Just going at It by easy stages?" , "Suppose." answered Harry after a communication with his magic mus tache, "that we go dye and night 'til we get the water out? It won't be long. Then we'll 'ave to work to gether. You'll need my vast store of learning and enlightenment I" he grinned. "Good. But the pumping will last through tomorrow night Can you take the night trick?" "Sure. But why?" "I want to go to that dance!" Harry whistled. Harry's big lips spread Into a grin. "And she's t got brown eyes !" he chortled to himself. "And she's got "I Want to Go to That Dance!" brown 'air. and she's a wye about 'er. Oh ! She's got a wye about er ! And I'll bet she's going with Maurice Ro dalne ! Oh I She's got a wye about 'er!" "Oh, shut up 1" growled Falrchlld, but he grinned In schoolboy fashion as he said It. Harry poured half a can of oil upon the hearings of the chiv wheel with almost loving tenderness. "She's got a wye about 'er!" he echoed. Falrchlld suddenly frowned. "Just what do you mean? That she's In love with Rodalne and just " "'Ow should I know? But she's got a wye about 'erl" "Well," the firm chin of the other man grew firmer, "It won't be hard to find out I" And the next night he started upon his Investigations. Nor did he stop to consider that social events had been few and far between for him, that his dancing had progressed little farther than the simple ability to move his feet In unison to music. Years of of fice and home, home and office, had not allowed Robert Fairchlld the natural advantages of the usual young man. But he put that aside now; he was going to that dance, and he was going to stay there as long as the music sounded, or rather as long as the brown eyes, brown hair and laughing Hps of Anita Richmond were apparent to him. What's more, he carried out his resolution. Again and again Falrchlid's eyes searched the crowds, the multicolored, overdressed costumes of the women", the old-fashioned affairs with which many of the men had arrayed them selves, ranging all the way from high leather boots to frock suits and stove pipe beaver hats. From one face to another his gaze went on; then he turned abstractedly to the long line of tables, with their devotees of keno, and bought a paddle. '"Ands up, everybody! And quick about It!" (TO BE CONTINUED.) knew as a legal right the weekly half holiday of the Saturday. Sunset on Puget Sound. Every land may occasionally have a beautiful sunset, and many lands have gorgeous and brilliant ones; but nowhere have they such lofty burn ing, milky-rose, opaline effects as- on this inland sea. Their enchanting beauty is doubtless due to the many wooded islands which lift dark green forested hills around open sweeps of water, whereon settle delicate mists. When the fires of sunrise or of sun set sink through these mists, the splendor of coloring Is marvelous and not equaled anywhere. It Is as though the whole sound were one great opal which had broken apart and flung its escaping, fires of rose, amethyst, am ber and green up through the maze of trembling pearl above. The un usual beauty of its sunsets long ago gave Puget sound the poetic name of Opal-Sea or Sea of OpaL Ella Hlg ginson. Ocean steamers ascend the river Amazon for a distance of 2,300 nuiea from the sea. GOOD HIGHWAYS a ALLOW FOR FUTURE TRAFFIC Surprising Facts Shown in Count Tak en on Roads In Tennessee Au tomobile Doubled. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture-) In building a road liberal allowance should be made for future Increase In traffic, says the bureau of public roads of the United States Department of Agriculture. A traffic count conduct- sni r 'i Oklahoma Hard-Surfaced Road Before and After Completion. ed by the bureau In co-operation with Tennessee officials on a number of roads In Davidson county, In which Nashville is located, shows surprising facts when compared with a similar count in 1916. During this period au tomobile registrations have doubled, while the number of motor vehicles on the road is five times as great as in 1916. In 1916 horse-drawn and motor-vehicle traffic were almost equal !n" volume. In 1921 horse-drawn traffic had decreased only sligillly in volume ind constituted 16 per cent of the traf fic, motor vehicles constituting 84 per cent Observations In this and other coun ties lead to the conclusion that volume of traffic may Increase in much great er proportion than the number of mo tor vehicles and will also depend to a large degree on the condition of Im provement of the road and on the eco nomic conditions In the adjacent ter ritory. BLAST-FURNACE SLAG TESTS Use of Material for Road Construc tion to Be Given Test by Bureau of Roads. Blast-furnace slag as a material for concrete road construction Is to be thoroughly studied by the bureau of public roads. United States Depart ment of Agriculture. With the enor mous demand for road-building mate rial, officials say, economy demands the use of material close at hand wherever possible, and the bureau Is now con ducting investigations of different ma terials with this In view. Great quantities of slag are to be found at blast furnaces in various parts of the country. Samples from 32 plants have been collected and will be made Into concrete and tested for resistance to wear, strength, water absorption and general utility. These results will be compared with similar tests made on other materials. In addition to the laboratory tests It is possible that the experiments will be followed by an Inspection of a number of concrete roads built with slag as the coarse material. These roads will be selected In various parts of the country and the reports, to gether with the laboratory tests, will furnish information which can be fully relied upon. MANY WORKERS ON HIGHWAYS According to Figures Given Out by Builders' Association, 114,325 Persons Are Engaged. - According to statistics given out by the American Road Builders' associa tion there are 114,325 persons engaged in road building work. There are 80,000 federal, state, town and county highway officials, 7,000 road contrac tors, 2,000 bridge contractors, 15.000 civil and highway engineers, 10,000 automotive and chemical engineers and 325 geologists. BETTER ROADS ON INCREASE Total of 28,000 Miles Constructed Last Year, Half of Which Was With Federal Aid. According to government figures, a total of 28,000 miles of good roads were built in the United States last year, or a distance equal to ten times the width of the country. Half of this mileage has been built by the state governments in conjunction with fed eral aid. The remaining 14,000 miles were constructed independent of fed eral assistance.
