Charley Bock had made a reputation as an attorney, and when the jury in the present case found a verdict of "Not Guilty," the great throng in the court room crowded about Bock to of fer congratulations. Down from the prisoner's box came Joe Baptiste, the poor, rought lumber jack, whose life had been saved by Bock's forceful handling of this case. which seemed to be so plainly one of first degree murder. Baptiste fell on his knees, but Bock and his wife passed out without waiting for any demonstra tion. Bock did not believe in convicting any man on purely circumstantial evi dence. He had often said he believed in a "Superior Law," which made jus tifiable certain sins. Baptiste 's case had been a peculiar one. One day, while calling at the lit f J f r "i .1 1 Wy 51 i na V I L.

The lumberjack knew Rosa lie, the postmistress, only as a friend, but he rushed to her rescue and han dled the stranger with the customary backwoods vigor. Later, he met this stranger out in the wood, and when the brazen maa insulted Joe, the lumber jack responded by using his knife. The visitor from the city was hurled over a precipice, at the foot of which he was later found dead. Baptiste called at Bock's home the night after the trial to thank the at torney, but his savior did not care for any expression from the backwoodsman, since he felt certain, and, in fact, told him, that he was satisfied that he was actually guilty. Charley little knew what an impor tant part this particular law case would play in his future life. A friend of Bock's, one Captain Mor ris, of the R. M. P., had been persist ent in forcing his attentions upon Mrs. Rock. Rock suspected this, but he was not sure. He was not happy in his home life, and as a result turned to UT - a ! :- ,. f . , . 31 1 v i V . srmssnrV. drink. In the course of his drinking, he often frequented a road-house on the bonier of the great forest, where his fancy was taken by the beautiful daughter of the proprietor. The discovery that his wife's broth er had forged his name to . several checks, and his accidental discovery of a note from Morris to his wife, in which MorriB expressed his love for Mrs. Bock, and referred to the attor ney as a "common drunkard," decid ed Bock to make, another trip to the l road-house that night despite the fact that the proprietpr had forbidden him the place because of a quarrel between the attorney and the sweetheart of his daughter. Bock was driven by his man to the road-house in his sleigh, Bock's en trance to the scene of the previous "7 J v'' SALO This is the picture that drew the largest crowd ever shown to in Portland's best theatre.

Rock staggered forward and pulling his little friend down to the table, or dered champagne for himself and the proprietor's daughter. The bartender had just started to opea the bottle, when the big lumber-jack who consid ered himself engaged to Bock's little friend, opened the door. There wss a tense moment, when the big backwoods man strode forward to demand the meaning of this scene. Rock endeavor ed to explain, but was stunned by a terrible blow on the jaw. He was hur riedly carried to the window and thrown into the icy river below. Swept down by the current, the attorney was carried into an eddy, where he manag ed to climb up on the snow-covered bank. Here he fainted and lay uncon scious in the white drift. Fortunately for Rock, he was found half dead, a few hours later, by Joe Baptiste, the man whose life he had saved. Joe hurried him away to his cabin in the wilderness, and carefully amused Bock with the assistance of the little postmistress. zi-v i t The blow on Rock's head had frac tured his skull, and he could not ro membcr even his name. "' , , '; The tender care of the beautiful lit tle nurse in the next few days created a new-born love in the soul of this man, who was beginning life over again. Baptiste saw a newspaper story, which said it was generally thought that Charley Bock had been killed in a saloon brawl. Bock regained his strength, his mem ory returned. He picked, up th news paper which Joe had brought from the village. Bock resolved to remain here in this woodland beauty spot with his friend Baptiste.

Bock felt this was a serious step, since he was already married, but decided finally to, take the chance of being able to live here in the forest contented and happy, without his former world ever knowing but what he had been killed in the saloon brawl. Back at Charley 's home, .Captain Morris had lost no time in making love to the attorney's wife. He had prompt ly usurped Hock s place in the House- hold. Mrs. Bock 's brother, now a fugitive, by chance made his way to the village on the border of the forest. Knowing that Baptiste had, at one time, been done such a great service by Bock, the desperado suspected that there might be some connection between the hand some stranger at Baptiste 's and the at torney who had disappeared. He made his way to the cabin and arrived just after the marriage ceremony had been performed. He confronted Rock and his beautiful bride and told the attorney he would withhold his knowl edge from the world if given the fam ily jewels, which he knew were safely hidden in Bock's old home. Rock refused to liston to any such demand, but Rosalie insisted that she knew what this man meant. Overcome by rcmorso, Charley admitted the ter rible wrong he had done her. Rock left the cabin and hurriodly made his way back to his old home in the city. It was a mce between the at torney and his brother-in-law to reach tho houne and secure the fortune of jewels. Jack reached the house first, but had hardly entered by the window before he heard the approach of Rock. Hidden behind the portieres, ho was watching the attorney, upon the se cret hiding place of the jewels, when both men were startled to hear some one descending the stairway. . Rock stepped behind the bookcase to see his wife in her night dress appar ently walking in her .slcop. Straight out through the door went the white figure, out into the snow. The attor ney hurriedly followed, but not in time, for his wife went tumbling over the great embankment near the-house, and he could ree far below the little figure lying bleeding in tho snow." Ho made hiB way as rapidly as he .could to the ravine below; the unfortunate woman was dead. Seeing some of the servants approaching, he made his way back to the house and secreted himself till af ter his wife's body had been brought in. Here, he confronted his brother-in-law, who, having witnessed his sis tor's terrible death, weakened as he saw be' fore him tho powerful form of Rock. Shaken by the presence of death, Jack hurled hit revolver from him and left the house with the resolve to try to lead a better life. Rock slipped out of the old homo un seen and made his way back to the lit tle cabin by the big waterfall, whore he found the beautiful Rosalie waiting. To Rock it seemed Indeed that the "Supe rior Law" had freed him from the bonds of the world in which he had been so unhappy and opened the door for a future in his clean, beautiful, snow-covered forest One trouble with the commission charter Is that it doesn't provide of fices enough. uit aa IN A MONTANA MI Hoisting Engine Breaks and Cages Drop, One With Four Men Filling 2000 Feet.
