In the office, smoking one of Mine Host's best cigars, his dignity outraged, sat the sheriff, waiting. Major Bedight walked up 'he hotel stairs, obllvlouB to bis pending fate. Suddenly a door opened and a head appeared, a blonde head, a piquant head, a head to catch tho fancy of .in artist. "Shh!" said the owner of tho pretty profile. Bedight stopped, Iqoking around cau- voire, tlously. "Hurry!" commanded the girl, holding open the door of her room. His Honor, the Mayor, hesitated for a moment—and then, throwing conventionality to the winds, bolted through. The girl turned the key in the lock and faced him accusingly. "Well of all the blundering bounders! Do you know the sheriff has been hanging aroiind here all afternoon watting to arrest you?" The mayor looked brazenly at the girL "I expected as much," he said, ^are- leesly. "What have you been doing norr?" she demanded, giving him a severe r^argaret Farnsworth. back reprimand from two otherwise kindly hazel eyes. "Oh, chuck the attitude. Jiefs." growled the mayor, disgustedly. "That little imp' of a Mabel Arney Insisted on riding the black saddler. He ran away with her and In trying to catch tho minx. I collided with a baby carriage and spilled the baby's milk. That's all. The confounded natives are always ready to arrest a summer resorter, and be- lierlng the peace and the dignity of the village had been shattered, they threw us In jail. We broke out." sullenly. "Do you blame us! Before she could reply there was a knock on the door. The girl's face went whit*. "I—I'm afraid somebody saw you come In here I" she whispered. "Nonsense." he bt«atbed. "Here —111 slip nnder th« bed. Go to t 'ne door." In a twinkling the mayor was safely out of sight. The girl opened the door. "Oh, hello, Jackie,"' she cried, in a relieved voice. "Come in." "Bess, we're In a terrible pickle." sobbed. Miss Vining. "That horrid man took Mabel Arney to Lakevllle this morning and got her arrested.

Well cover Mabel's black thatch until she looks like an albino. Here she Is now," as the rustle of skirts proclaimed a new arrival. The mayor lay on bis back, facing tbe mattress.

Tbe man shrugged his shoulders. "Bess, you scoot out and discoverj what Harriet Brooks—" consulting blsj list,—••would like to have me do tomorrow and whatever It is we start] at five In the morning."The girl hurried away.
