She shovel fashion over dressed in the typical native style, sprang froin behind a clump of bushes an^ bawled: "I thought so. Gol dam ye, you're under arrest." J he mayor looked at this new cus- lan with growing Interest. The fellow was long and Isnk and weather- beaten. The type was recognizable at first glance. Undoubtedly he was the local game warden, a shlftlessi ne'er-do-well, appointed by a not too discriminating politician during a hot campaign. "Whafa the charge, officer?" asked Bedlght unhooking the flsh and standing over it as it flopped upon the sand. The warden, swelling with importance, cleared his throat for action. "That there flahin' tackle o' youm has got gang hooks on it which Is agin the law. 'Vou'il haf t' come with me. mister." The mayor whistled. ' "Got a copy.ot the law with you?" he asked, with a careful show ot respect. The warden plunged into his coat pocket and^ brought forth a paper-covered booklet, distributing on the wind aa he did so flecks of tobacco, matches and sliver folL "Hero 'tis," he grunted, trlumphsnt- ly. "Right there—section 7. 'Plshln' In Season.'" pointing with a grimy thumb. ' ' Bedlght read the section In question. "All right, officer: I guess I'll hsve to go," he agreed, good-naturedly, a happy thought gripping him enticingly. The girl In the boat screamed. "Don't you dare go away. If you do. I'll—well send that bill to Ossian!" "^he mayor groaned. "Come on!" ordered the warden Impatiently.- "I ain't got no time to be argin' with skirts. You've violated the: law an' I reckon you'll haf to pay th' fiddler." Bedight readied to the beach as If to pick up his' fish. Instead, he reached six inches farther, took a quick, strong hold on the bottom of one leg of the warden's trousers, gave a mighty tug upward and. as the disconcerted native turned a somersault In midair, broke for the boat Seeing his Wrldeht Intent. Miss Andrews encouraged the leap, bift alas for Jiuman predsioo! In his rush he struck the gunwale, tbere was a clatter, a scream and the next instknt Allss Andrews found herself In seven feet of water. 8ha came up with a gasp and would have swum ' to 8al «l.v.

"Take your time—and get It good and dry. Er—^hang it on the umbrella, yon know—^wbere the sun can get at it" He heard her soft footfalls in the sand—and waited. He waited a long time. Once he almost forgot and was ' at the point of viewing the landscape in ber general direction, when he beard a discreet cough and Jerked his head about-face, giving himself up to the cantankeitous conduct ot a fish hawk pestering a kingfisher, much to the vocallstic annoyance of the latter, who chattered angrily. And then from the weedy country road behind the hill there came voices. The warden and his assistants were returning. Would the girt iaever reappear? Rushing toward the hill, the mayor waved his arms and shouted: "Go back, you fellows! Go back, there's a lady dressing! Tbere'i "Oh, Mr. Bedlght." cried !a clear voice from the rear. ^I'm ready.' The mayor turned and ran precipitately down the hill, the natives in full pursuit. But this time he reached the boat in safety and flung a derisive laugh at the angry warden's peremptory command to: "Come back here, gol dam ye, an' git arrested!" The girl watched the man narrowly. "If you don't mind, Mr. Bedlght. we'll go over on the lee side of the islsnd. There's a nice warm beach over there and while I Investigate the condition of this lunch we can dry out a bit. I'm. not going back to that hotel in the daylight!" , It was dusk when the two climbed UP the steps of the Squirrel Inn. The judge came forward officially to receive the report "He's—he's a perfect gentleman," whispered Mae to Jackie as she slipped by to her room. On the beach of Arrow island, on the leeward side, two sand hummocks that showed convincing evidence of having been leaned against might have been seen in the shimmering moonllghtr^-and they were about SO far apart Now that the parcels post is a certainty, the advocates of one cent letter postage are Increasing their demand that letters be sent In this conn, try for one cent Instead of two. They have flares which show that first class mall pays the government $62,00]),0(M) profit annually, which- means the profit on letters, the profit on each pound of first.class mail being 84 cents, or S1.68U a ton. This class of mail is^one-eighth of the mail tonnage, yet it pays 7 Sper cent of the revenue. An enormous deficit Is caused on second class mall through the cartage to extreme points throughout the country of magazine mail. Magaslnea. some of them charging from $4,000 to 15.000 a pni(A for advertising are carried throughout the United.States for one cent per pound oi; $20 per ton compared to $i.«;80 per ton which business men pay on letters. .
