V Moore is one of the chief opponents of the movement to open Oklahoma. DAVID l^YNE. lead- far of ^the movement, idles suddenly and Tony in his loyalty to Moore ,18 troubled because of his ' aympa^y for Payne's caiise. He tries to forget Rita Moore, with . iviiom he has fallen in love, and • tfccompanibs Pawnee Bill and; BUFFALO BILL on a wild west show tour. After many adventures he returns; but Rita comes fack for a lisit and he is unable to keep from' declaring his love • for her. When she admits she, 1^ engaged to another, be disappears. : Pawnee Bill organizes his own sihow. Tony goes with It. It &ils and Pawnee Bill is persuaded by the city of Wichita to go there and lead the Boomers into Oklahoma. The fight finally is won. On April 22. 1889, the gun is flrcd that sends 50,000 home- seekers scrambling oyer the border in a wild rush. Tony rides on to Guthrie .which in one day Js springing from nothing to a city of 8,000. There he accident tally gets into the hardware' bUBinesfl. aiAPTBR XLIV. Men trudged beh^d the plow ou Oklahoma farms, and in Oklahoma City, Guthrie and other. towns the hammers continued to ring as little buildings with, false facades reared proudly frpm street level. Slowly some of the excitement and furore died away as the in- halbltanU of a new land settled down to business. The exodus of . the disappointed ones who had failed in the rush to find an unclaimed piece of land was over. Presently more would leave as here and there a discouraged farm* «r would give up in the grim battle to wrest a living from barren land. Hundreds of the best farms were occupied by Sooners—men -who sneakfd into Oklahoma by stealth ' and lay hidden until the opening. Court battles would rage over the • Sooners for years but all too often would end in their favor for lack Of evidence against them. ' AI UlUe, brother of Pawned Bill, himself had found a Sooner on his own claim. Neither man would move,and in the end Llllle would compromise and sell out, knowing that one Sooner would stick with i another, even to perjuring himself 'in coart. A people were trying the experiment ,pf gdverniUK themselves, hoping to find truth in the saying that • ^hat :gbrernment governs best ^hich* goverhii least. In Guthrie, .as in ^Oklahoma City. Stillwater and other towns, there «;ere marshals 'to uphold law and order. ^Feder ^l marshals continued to range:the territory; nevertheless bntuiwry stalked through the new countr>'.. and men who bad plied their vicious trade along the Kansas bcrder rode south to greener fields. ^ In Guthrie. Tony HarrJ ?on found the stilaulant he had long needed. He ha4 drifted into the clamorinc; •town in the role of spectator, with 'only the Vaguest of notions of f ind­ uing anything that would claim S im; but now he was a part of it II. a iforce In the building of a jiew city; Men walked into the little hardwarle store with money and walked out with,too>s, and beneath their hands Guthrie grew. And Fred Perkins, his fat little ^piBxtner; looked ~ahefld. The maa«i •^h^d^ a positive genius tor fooling around'with figures and estimaUng costs, and already the firm of Perkins add .Harrison had contracted for the erection of two buildings and taken a nice little profit. \ ' "A nice sideline. Tony. Some tiay It -will be the biggest part of our business. 'Perkins and Harrison, Contractors' — how's that? Thereir bie-andther big boom when, Guthrie's named capital of the territory; by that time we'll be able to .bid iron something big." Harrison smiled. "Vou're niak- irig mg rich in spite of m >'8elf. 1 Iforizoit put 'five'hundred dollars into a business for wiiich you burnish the material, a sl.te and all the brains. It isn't right," "Am I kitking? You saved my life. [AVhere would I have been if you hadn't come along and put me on my feet?j And about the brains part—don't lie, foolish. You've provided more than your share of the Arm's intelligence, and thrown in more hard work than any two men 1' could have found." WTiich was largeiy true. Never had he thrown himself more wholeheartedly into any task. He had discovered that salesmanship was something more than standing behind a counter, filling orders, and had gone out and solicited business in large quantities, trading on men's belief in Guthrie's future. For between Oklahoma City and Guthrie a feud'had developed. Kach craved the honor—and the material benefits—pf being designated as the capiMl city when a territorial governOTBn^ shoulU have been established. 1^ their efforts to make^an impressive showing, both cities plunged ahead in a wild race to build, to grow, to attract more business to them. Trains from the north and sduth continued to be laden with supplies aqd with men lured by the far-flung accounts of great cities springing up <jver night from the. :plains. The [hardware business took on more ramifications. It became a builders' supply house; and while Tony Harrison made his calls in tj)wn or. on Cherokee, rode mile sifter mile to outlying farms to tell of plows and seed and other necessities that could be bought on credit. Fred Perkins continued & be busy with his pencil and his figures, visioning a. mighty business and himself and his^ partner me^of wealth and importance. JS^^ Waabington. the president of the United States, impressed with the gravity of the. situation iij Oklahoma, where !<6 ,000 people clamored for governmental recognition, resolved to remedy ftjatters so soon as Congress should assemble. He busied himself on a message. ' And In AVashinpton, a man an.i a girl, alighting from the train that had brought them uj) from Manassas. Virginia, hoarded one that was departing for the west. The girJ was auburn-haired and dressed in somber gray. The • man, !a tall, broad figure with a gray goatee, had only one arm and that displayed a black mourning band. The train sped on. the man gazing abstractedly at the flitting landscape, the girl idly skimming through a ma^razine. ''Things will be changed. Rita." he said presently, voicing a thought that had been in liis mind for some time. The girl nodded -and laid down her bopTc. "There was a depth of sadness in the gray eyes she turned' on him and she folded her hands in her lap as one dP .es who has suffered long and patiently. "Craig," said Colonel MOore, "I wonder how we'll fiiid him. There's a man, Rita—a man.". Again she nodded silently, and her father, as though at some unwelcome thought, frowned and plucked at his goatee. She spoke presently out of a long silence, reading his thoughts. "Has he hurt you. Father? 1 never hear you speak of him." ' Colonel Moore twisted himself in his seat and stared at her. "Hurt me! Who?" In answerishe merely smiled, a little sadly, and Titus Moore reddened and shifted uncoinfortably, finally to return her smile in tacit confession that she had. plumbed his mind. "But why do you ask if he's hurt me, RIU? After aU,— He liroke off before he should say too much. Not since theinightj Tony Harrison had Ictt the Bar. K«BO dramatically had he pientfnned him to her. A world of questions ha^ been in his mind since then but he had left them unvoiced, j Some day. perhaps, the whole thinig would iconie^ out, but until thiBD. . . . ."After all," she picked up wher* he had left ofr, "after; all—what?'' He shrugged. ".Vothing in particular. If you're wondering whether I'm hurt bjpcause he ,weht and flcck^ over to the other side of the fence on the opening, the an­ swer's' no.: I wasn't exactly surprised to read his name in the new^spaper accounts—he .and Pawnee Bill being such good friehdsi I might have been disappointed- yes; but not to the point of holding anything against hlmt He's able-liodied.' free and twehty-one. and he doesn't owe jne auithlng." "He seemed to think he owed you a lot." she told him. "The night he left he told me how eternally grateful he was to you and Joe Craig." . Titus Moore's eyes brightened. "Ho did?' '•Yes. From tlie -way he talked I really felt that he had it in his minii to leave—that he'd been thinking about it for some time. And then-.-" Her voice stopped ahruptlv. . Her father sat in patient silence, and after a bit she spoke in sudden resolve: "You knew, of course, that 1 loved him?" I was blind for a lens time," he falil slowly, "i>ut it came over me air of a suddeu one day. When he lit out I figured it was because he had fulicn in love with you and was kind of hopeless about It. I didn't know theu that it went both way.'-." "Uut It did.' He nodded. "1 didn't ask any questions, because I've always given you your head." "L^know you have, bless your hoart." She patted his hand affectionately. "I did find it har<l to believe that von Iovod_^ Herbert," Titus Moore paid after' another silem c "What u daughter of mine could liave seen in his kind—. But I wasn't long in gueHsing at the reason." Rita's mouth twisted in a queer smile. "That was just it—I had always been your daughter, rather than .Mother's. (Poor Mother. I sometimes found her looking at me with the strangest eipression in her eyes—as if she felt tliat she had lost me." The colonel cleared his throat huskily and stared ahead of him. I had my* first serious quarrel with Herbert about- a year ago In Washington," she resumed, glad of the opportunity that' had tome at last of confiding in hini. "He grew so inipos.sihly superior over—bver two cowboys wh.o were in trouble. They had roped a cig^ir store Indian and were drasging it through Penn.sylvania avenue." Her father laughed. "Wliat a sight! Now. I wonder why it is I never.get to look at anything like that? Good and drunk. I suppose?" Bits of crimson flamed in her checks. "I suppose so: hut" -with a sudden burst of resentn-ent— "Herbert maddened me. Hlt^ atti- tuilc pictured for me perfe<;t!y the superiority the Forsyth'es felt toward—" i •Toward our kind— ^1 know." Titus Moore finished for her. "Thank Ood you didn't make that mistake. Ahoct Tony, now—do you suppose—" "1 know what you're thinking," she interrupted, and ' shook her head. ".That is all over."
