CIIAPTKK XXII. (Continued.)
Jack ran hastily to tlio spot, hoping to
pain possession of the plank which had
been of such service to his opponent, and
. want of which had entailed such misfor
tunes upon him. But Walter was too
quid! for him. The plank was drawn
over, and again ho faced his intended vic
tim with the width of the ditch between.
He looked across at Walter with a
glanco of bnllled rage. It was something
new to hhn to be worsted by a boy, and
it mortified him and angered him to such
an extent that, luid he got hold of him
at that moment, murder might have been
"Put down that plank and come
across," he called out. Walter did not
Jack might have waded again across
the ditch without inllicting much addi
tional damage upon his already wet and
niiry clothing, but he fancied that Wal
let was in his power, and hoped he would
capitulate. To this end, he saw that it
Was necessary to reassure him, and de
ceive him ns to his own Intentions.
"Come across, boy," he said, softening
hip tone. "You needn't be afraid. I
dii!nt mean nothing. I was only tryin
to see if I could frighten you a little."
Im very well off whore I am," said
Walter. "I think I'll stny where L am
"You won't want to stay there all day."
"I'd rather stay here all day than be
on the same side with you."
"Come, boy, I'll make a bargain with
you'. You've put me to a good deal of
"I don't sec that."
"You locked me up in the closet, nnd
you've kept me all night huntin' after
"You were not obliged to hunt after
me, and as for locking you up in the
"closet, it was the only way I had of sav
ing my money."
Jack did not care to answer Walter's
argument, but proceeded: "Now I've got
you sure, but 1 11 do the fair thing. If
you'll come across and pay me ten dol
lars for my trouble, I'll let you go with
out hurtin' you."
"What is to prevent you taking all my
money, if you get me over there?"
"Haven't I said I wouldn't?"
"You might forget your promise." said
Walter, whose confidence in Jack's word
was by no means great. A man who
would steal probably would not be trou
bled by any scruples ,on the subject of
violating ins word.
"If you don't come, I'll take every cent,
and give yon ti beating beside," said, Jack,
bis anger gaining the ascendancy.
"Well, what are you goin' to do about
it.' demanded Jack, after a brief pause.
"I'll stay, where I am."
"I can come over any time, and get
hold of you;"
"Perhaps you can," said Walter. "111
take the risk."
Two hours passed, and still besieger
and besieged eyed each other from oppo
site sides of the bank. Jack grew more
and more irritable as the cravings of his
appetite increased, and the slight hope
that Meg might appear with some brcak
iast was dissipated. Walter also became
snore hungry, but showed no signs of im
patience. At this time a boy was seen coming
ncVoas the meadow. Jack espied him, and
the idea struck' him that he might through
him lay in a stock of provisions.
"Come here, boy," he said. "Where do
you live?" -
The boy pointed to a small farm house
half a mile distant.
"Do you want to earn some money?"
"I dunno," said the boy, who had no
objections to the money, but, knowing
Jack's shady reputation, was in doubt
as to what was expected of him.
"Go home, and get a loaf of bread and
sojne cold meat, and bring me, and I'll
give you half a dollar."
"Didn't you bring your luncheon?"
asked the boy.
"No, I came away without it, and I
can't spare time to go back."
It occurred tothe boy, noticing Jack's
lazy posture, that business did not appear
to be very, driving with the man tvjiose
time was so valuable.
"Perhaps mother won't give me the
bread and meat," he said.
"You can give her half the money."
The boy looked across to Walter, won
dering what kept him on the other side.
Our hero saw -a chance of obtaining help.
' ''I'll -give you a dollar," he called out,
"if you'll go and tell somebody that this
mail is.trying to rob me of all my money.
I slept in his house last night, and lie
tried to rob me there. Now he will do
the same if he can get hold of me."
"If you tell that, I'll wring your neck,"
exclaimed Jack. "ItVnll a lie. The boj
elept at my house, as he says, and stole
pome money from me. He escaped, but
I'm bound to get it back if I stay here
"That is, not true," said Walter. "Car
rj my message, and I will give you a
dollar, and will, besides, reward the men
that come to my assistance."
The boy looked from otie to the other
in doubt what to dp.
"If you want your head broke you'll
do ns he says," said Jack, rather uneasy.
"Ho won't pay what lie promises,"
"You shall certainly be paid," said Waller-
"You'd hotter shut up, or it'll be the
worse for you," growled Jack. "(Jo and
pet my breakfast quick, boy, nnd I!ll
pcy you tlio fifty cents."
'Ail right." said the boy. "I'll go."
Fifteen' minutes later Jack lose to his
feet. An idea had occurred to him. At
thp distanco of a furloug there was a
rail fence. It occurred to him that one
of tbeje rails would enable him to cross
tht ditch nnd get at his victim. Ho was
not niraW Walter would oscapa, since he
cpiild easily turn back and capturo him
if lie ventured across.
Waller did hot understand his design

with some anxiety, the movements of hi
foe, fearing some surprise, I

evidently becoming more dangerous.
Jack came back with a triumphant

"Now," ho said, "I've got you 1"

ered the plank, ready to convert it into
a bridge as soon us necessary. Jack put
down the rail. It was long enough to span
the ditch, but was rather narrow, so that
some caution was needful in crossing it.
Walter had moved several rods farther
up, and thrown the plank across. Though
his chances of escapo from the peril that
menaced him seemed to have diminished
since his enemy was also provided with a
bridge, and it became now a question of
superior speed, waiter was not alarmed.
Indeed, his nrosnwia nf i,it-
peared brighter than ever, for ho caught
sigui oi two men approaching across the
meadow, and ha Ruanootori Mine
sent by the boy whom he had hired. These
mm nu not yet attracted the attention
of Jack, whose back was turned tmrnrd.q
them. He crossed tho rail, and, at the
same tune, niter cross the plank. Tins
he drew across, and then, leaving t nn ttm
wins, set out on a quick run.
"What's the matter?" asked one of the
two men as Walter came uu.
"I got lost in the woods, and nasscd
the night in that man's house," said our
nero. 'tic tried to rob me, but I locked
him in the closet, nnd jumped out of the
window and escaped. -This morning he
got on my track, nnd would have caught
me it it hadn't been for ,that ditch."
"You locked him in the closet?" repeat
ed the other. "How were you able to do
that? You are only a boy, while he is a
Walter explained the matter briefly.
"That was pretty smart," said Peter
Holcomb, for this was the name of the
man who questioned him. "You're able
to take care of yourself."
"I don't know how.it would have turn
ed out if you hadn't come up."
"I happened to be at homo when my
boy came and told me that Jack Man
gum had offered him fifty cents for some
breakfast. He told me about you also,
and, as I suspected Jack was up to somo
ot his tricks, I came along."
"I am very much obliged to you," said
Walter, "and I hope you'll let me pay
you for your trouble.
"I don't want any pay, but you may
pay my boy what you promised him, if
you want to."
"I certainly will ; and I never paid
away money with more pleasure. As I
haven't had anything to eat since yester
day afternoon, I should like to have you
direct me to the nearest place where I
can get some breakfast."
"Come to my house; I guess my wife
can scare up some breaktast for you.
She'll be glad to see the boy that got
the hetter of Jack Mangutn."
"llow long has this Jack Mangum
lived about here?" asked Walter, after
accepting with thanks the offer of a
"About five years. He's been In the
county jail twice during that time, and
there's a warrant out for him now. lies
a confirmed thief. He'd rather steal any
time than earn an honest living."
While this conversation was going on,
they had been walking toward the farm
house in which Peter Holcomb lived. It
was an humble one-story building, with
an oftlc above, un one siue ot it were
bioad fields, some under cultivation; and
there was an nppearanco of thrift and
comfort despite the smallncss of the
"Come in." said Peter, leading the way.
"John," he added, addressing the hired
man, who had accompanied him, "you
may go into the potato field and hoe. I'll
yi out directly."
Walter followed him into a broad, low
room tlio Kitciien in wnicn .urs. xioi-
comb, a pleasant looking woman, was en
gaged in cooking.
Mary," said her husband, "can't you
scare up some breakfast for this young
man? He stopped at Jack Mangum's last
night, and didn't like his accommodations
well enough to stay to breaittast."
"You don't say so," repeated Mrs. IIol-
comb, licr countenance expressing curios
ity. "Thnts about the last place Id
want to stop at."
She went to the pantry, and speedily
reappeared with some cold meat, a loaf
of bread, and some fresh butter, which
she placed on the table.
"It looks nice,' saiu waiter, "ana I

Every farmer knows how hard it Is
to keep wlro fences In good condition
moro thnn a yenr or two nt a time.
Cattle nro bound to rub up against
them, people will sag the wires In get
ting over tho fence, nnd even tho
weight of snow hns been known to
break them. A wire fenco looks all
right as long ns tho wires aro taut,
but as soon as tho strands begin to
sag and loop It Is no longer attractive,
nor Is It u sure means of keeping
stock within bounds. Many devices
hnvo been suggested and even patented
for stretching wire, hut hero Is n
slinplo Ittlo contrivance that anyone
can make In a few minutes that will
do tho work quickly and well. For
short spans It can bo made of wood,
although for heavy wires or for long
stretches It would bo better to ninke it
out of Iron. This little contrivance Is
about two feet long, with two pins
about three Inches apart nt one end.
Place the wire between these pins and
turn tho stretcher around until tho
wire Is drawn tight By engaging the
pin nt tho other end of tlio stretcher
the tension can be maintained whl'e
the wire Is being nnlled fast. With
an nrrangoment of this sort ono man
can do rapid work alone nnd fix up a
vigglng fence In short order.
To Slnko n Good Clutcrn.
An absolutely water-tight cistern
mny be made ns follows:
In digging, the sides should be made
smooth and true jierpendlculurly. For
tho bottom use five parts of clean,
coarse, sharp sand (plasterers call It
fine gravel) to ond part of cement It
inly requires to be dnmp enough to
work well. It should bo thoroughly
mixed,. all at ono time, and bo lowered
Into the cistern quickly and spread
moro rapidly with a shovel or hoe, and
should bo beat down hnrd and smooth.
Upon this bottom foundation the
cistern should bo walled up with brick
or stone In cement to nt least fl Inches
above tho top of, the ground, which will
keep nil surface water out For finish
ing the bottom use one part cement to
one part sand ; this Is thoroughly mix
ed while dry, nnd then water Hhould bo
added until It Is like plastering mortar.
Dump It on the bottom about .". inches
thick nnd smooth witli a trowel. It
will soon bo hard ns stone. For the
sides of tho cistern, which should be
done beforo finishing the bottom, use
equal parts of sand and cement nnd
apply quickly as you would plaster a
wall. It Is. not safe to use anything
but the. best Portland cement, which-
costs about $3 a barrel.

Uncle Sam' Slim Land Itt-nurvo.
The time when n man might move
westward and take up virgin soil at his
pleasure has passed, and, In general,
it may be said that the son of the
farmer of to-day must look for his sole
heritage in tho laud Ills father holds.
It Is now n barren boast that "Uncle
Sam has a farm for every ono of us."

What a slim reserve that Is may bo
realized from tho fact that, one-fourth
of It was disposed of In tho following
year. Wo cannot add to our agri
cultural areas except by Irrigation and
drainage, but we may, by Intelligent
selection of crops, by scientific cultiva
tlon and by careful treatment of hind,
make It produce three or four times
as much as It does at present. And
