THE IQLA DAIliY ItEClSTER'WEDNESMY EVENftJG. OCTOBER 16. 1912. "^WffrZiBE THEYllikKINC SUCHZCFVSS ABOUT THAT BOY?'* ASKS MARQUARp*S MA I -A OopnIsM Vm, WMtem R»v«|n|M<r Unloa "Help me to stand," she directed, tripping his arm. ^ • He raised her. She Jet her foot touch the ground, winced and toppled toward him. i "There's a wood chopper's cabin JUBt ahead," she jgroaned. "CouUl— could you carry nje tliere?" blushing. Tor answer he picked her up in his arms. She threw hor arms tihoul his neck and clung to him. her hair brushing' his cheek. In sight of the hut she whispered: "Wait! l.ct nieidown a niinule." She stood Itanins aualn-'st liini. her jfull, ripe lips tcasincly rwnr. For a moment us Iw looltcd itiio lior fiUh- omless eyes, HodiKlit ft-lt tlie weakness of man for woman coming over him. To combat it, he moved farther away, supporting lier at arm's lengtli. "It would be well to leave me at (he cottage and go back for help. Look Inside, please, while I Ic^n against this birth," Flie directed. "Tliere"* probably a burglar In the voodbox or a man und»r the bed," he said lauKliingly, as he started toward the <;maKf. The maytfl- stood for a moment Upon the thresboUl and then entered As his form dls.ippc:ir<'d wliliin, there appeared around the corner of the cabin a man—tlie game warden of Lakeville. In H twinkling he had Blammed »=hut the door and thrown a great bar across it from without. "There, darn ye; I told ye I'd git ye!" he bellowed with radiant pomposity. Btdight turned angrily as th3 door closed and realized too late that the Warning given along the trail had not safeguarded hira. lie was a prisoner. Peering ihiou:.;h the dirty windowpane, an aperture not large enough to j '.i -nnit till; l):l^sii,g of a man's body, he saw Viiss l-"anjsv.orth leave the tre« against which slie had been leaning and walk leisurely toward the hotel. With the renIiz.ition that the girl had deliberately Ud him into the hands of tI;o enciiy; he gritted his teeth and then, at the thought that perhaps Jackie Yin lug l|ad planned this coup do main, Bcidight felt a ^ueer sinking of certain hopes that heretofore had htioyed up a heart yearning to take hi^h hurdles. No— a woman may ktcj a man in hot water on general iirincinles of love, but to throw him in Jail is treachery, and when a woman reaches tliat point she Is like the woman scorned—a perfect fury. ; The room In which rtcdight found himself was big and rough like.some of the words the mayor said before his sense of tlie ludicrous returned. Then. In full possession of the humor of th« situatlcn. he sat down on the , aide of the bunk and grinned. A man can grin whcntlie joke Is on him. ^^^t he seldom bccjomes boi.'sterous under; the circumstances unless he is in pub' lie. where it is always pood taste to - prove his good fellowship by blatant laughter. That the game warden had gone for help there was no doubt. Remembering the slap wliich HedlgbC had administered on the day of their flrst meeting, that worthy did not desire to taka further chances. "But if Miss Vining planned the trap, why did not the warden bring enough help with him to arrest me?'" This was the question the mayor asked himself—and gave it up. He had no way of knowing that the war- idea had sent word to the sheriff to ibe on hand—bat that functionary was at the mOTr -.rnt marooned on an Island Ave miles from tlie village with ample food sent by a kind providence in the light of the moon, but with no boat by which lie might navigate the inter- Tenlng waters. An hour passed, during which time' Bedight had sntisfled himself that wood choppers' cabins in general andj this one in particular were built with the express purpose of being better • Jalla than those possessed by the ordinary hamlet in the north country. He was securely confined—and he affably. "It Is light and airy and Jw.s easy exits in case of Are or ennui." "Very well." she replied, "repent at leisure." The mayor listened. She was going away. ".Miss Vlring." she cried. I "Yes, Mr. Pedight." . "You know very well you would de- Bptse me If I told yon what^'ou are ; asking. I am flrni in my resolve not to appear In this light You may as . well go now, for I shall not answer your question." He watched her lithe form as she ' walked [rapidly, away, her head erect. | jher shoulders back, every Inch a ' iplendl^ woman. • j Scarc^ely had she disappeared when , Bedighf lienrd the bar thrown back, and a tolce whispered cautiously: "\Val(ter! Walter! The door is un- • barred. Walt until I get away!" From his dingy window Bedight j saw another feminine form saunter , leisurely up tlie trail—and this one, ; too, was slltn and fair to look upon, j a woman that any good man might | well dcslro to win. CHAPTER X. I Instead of leaving the Vicinity of j the cabin after being liberated. Be- ! dight closivl the door and replaced the bur, l"»rlfiing btick into the , bushes, he waited. An' hour passed ; and then came voices and rustling in , tile wood. Soon the game warden and \ two deputies hove info view. The warden's face was flushed with excitement as ho strode along In advance of his men. Approaching the door, ho called out: "Will ye surrender peaceable and come out o' there, er shall I come in an' git .ve?"

With an agile siying, Bedight left the clump of bushes and daslied for 'he door. The warden sa«r him coming and sprang to meet him—but too late! Slamniing the door shut, the maj'or siiot the bar home. ^ lIO'MuId hear the strenuous objec- •lons of the prisoners as he hurried i«:iy. making a detour to a farmer's itouse. wliere he hoped to secure something to eat. A ruddy-cheeked farmer's wife fed him bountifully and protested at the unnecessary size of the coin he gave her for his dinner md a basket of provisions, with which he set out for the cabin. Reaching the wood-chopper's hut. In which two hours previous he had been. a prisoner, he rapped on the door. AA'hoever's there," cried .•'n excited voice within, "let us out!" "Break the glass in the window," ilrectcd the mayor, his face illumined with smiles, "and eat out of my hand!" A growl of mingled disappointment and relief preceded the shattering of the glass. Bedight held his Casket on his left arm and began passing provl- j slons through the aperture. '•'Good grab, this, boj-e." he chuckled.'. "I serve excellent meals at both my hoarding houses. I'll bring you tobacco tomorrow night. Just you make yourselves comfortafile. How i^ould you like .a deck of cards?" It was dark when Bedight readied Squirrel Inn and slipped unobserved to his room. ^\^^en Jackie Vining came down at ] Rube Maniuard'a meUtMv Cleveland. CI. Oet. 1<;.—liutje .Msii-. iii:ar«l.
