(Continual (ruin l.it Week.)
Tho meaning of tho whoo strango
proceeding llnahcJ through Barbara's
mind, ami It appeared so nuicuuuR.
eo grotesquely comical that tho culid
placed tho lamp on tho floor anil bunt
out In wild laughter. Captain Jim
looked at her soveroly, which had tho
effect of checking a second spasm.
"I knows It," remarked tho child,
her eyes sparkling with merriment.
"I'll Jlst bet It's that old tree n-acrap-In'
agin the shed."
Ho scowled at her. Ho could scarce
ly bellevo his sense. Tho Idea of
this child ridiculing his assertion.
"I tell you It be n wild beast, thats
got In thar. Most likely drovo down
from tho heights by tho snow. Dldi t
It spring on tow tnoT Lookhora." Soino
faint marks showed on his face. "JUt
tho tlDa of thorn ferocious claws
tetched rao, as I sprung back."
Darbara's eyes expanded. 8ho took
up tho lamp and looked at his faco.
Ho stooped low to facllltato the ex
amination. "Well," who said, feign
ing astonishment. "I said as how
that old trco would scratch somebody
Ho didn't relish tho way narbarn
laughod at his experience. Angrily
seizing a rocking chair he Jammed it
against tho table, then turning to her
ho said "I should think yor ma'd bo
skecrt some, tow bo n llvln" horo
"I should opine." replied tho matter-of-fact
young mlsd. "Sho wants to go
away, but ain't got no rocks."
rtnrh.. ithn kin n her nil tho rocks
she wants," said Captain Jim, with n
tinge or settled determination.
"Sho kin?" nsked tho astonished
"Sho kin!" reiterated he.
"Do yor really mean UT" asked Bar
bara, still doubting him.
"Sartln," replied Jim.
At that moment throo distinct
knocks wero heard on tho front door.
"The's tho old gal herself: I knows
the taps." exclaimed the child. Sho
placed tho lamp on a chair, then un
locked nnd opened tho front door.
Captain Jim had como prepared, an
ticipating tho possibility of trouble
with MacDonatd. His Imagination pic
tured him as a powerful, passionate
Individual. Had he mado Inquiries ho
would probably haro discovered that
MacDonald was a mero creation of
Barbara's, or rather tho Joint creation
of her ma's and Kitty's brains, for tho
purpose of hoodwinking him. HU con
scientious scruples checked any lean
ing toward doubt of MacDonald's ex
istence. His belief In Barbara's story,
at the tlmo of Captain Tom's surprise
party was absolute, so that when the
taps sounded on tho front door be
fished up a pistol from his back
"Jeot as a precaution," partly to
show MacDonald, In caso It was ho
and not Annie, who was about to en
ter, that ho (Jim. was armod, nnd
partly to assure Annie, should It really
bo hor, that ho was prepared to pro
tect her and tho "chlllun."
"Captain Jim here," said Annlo with
evident satisfaction, upon entering.
"I hurried homo to welcome you."
Sho looked about tho disordered
kitchen, as though astonished. "Why.
what la all this about?" He flourish
ed the pistol and frowned be
cause ho imagined that under the
present circumstances it conveyed an
impression of courage
"Annie." said he, "don't you bo
skcert. You an tho Chilian bo safe."
She was about to laugh, but checked
herself, and appearing terrified, quick
ly nsked, "Why, what is tho mnttor?
Why aro'theso things piled against
the door? And that pistol?"
"Jest a precaution, tbet's all my
dear. Thero be cats in tho shed," re
plied Jim seriously.
"Oh, Jim, you frighten me!" said
Annie, und sho added timidly, "aro
they torn cats?" Ma turned her back
on Jim to conceal her effort to sup
press n laugh. Captain Jim replied,
"they bo wild cats or cou-Jars, I'm sar
tln, but I bo a-goln' tow drive 'om off.

"No, no, Jim," pleaded Annie, hor
face still averted from him. "They'll
kill you. How many are there?"
"I swan thar whar two. I folt tho
fur when they sprung on tow me," re
plied tho dauntless captain.
"Oh, Jim dear, are you hurt?" in
quired Annie, with admirably affocted
"Jest a few scratches, but they ain't
nuthln' tew what I'd go through for
"I guess the old gal claw'd him."
.aid Barbara, In an undertone. Tho
.imark was heard by ma, who cast
k sharp, meaning glance at tho child.
Barbara understood It and added soft
ly, "but I'm mum, I Is, 'causo he's
coin' to como down with tho rocks."
Annie could not control herself
longer, and she burst out In a
fit of laughter, which sho con
cealed from Jim by turning her
faco and wringing her hands as
though In anguish. ''What shall
I do; oh. what shall I do. And
my poor children." Sho rushed off to
tho bodroom and shut herself In,
Captain Jim rushed after her, hut
too late, the door was closed. Ho
shouted through tho koyholo, "you
put bo calm now, my dear."
Barbara watchod the maneuver nnd
remarked to herself, "tho old gal is
a-plnyin' on him slick."
Jim paced the floor In an agitated
manner. "It's no use; I hev got tew
. tacklo them critters myself, an' tow
nnr't. Barb., bring roe a carvln'
r - - - -
"Ain't got no enrvin' knife, (lot n
bread knlfo." Sho took n knlfo from
a smnll cupboard near tho Htovo and
offered It to him. Ho graaped It, say
lug. "thot'll do." Ho glanced at Its
carving dimensions, tested tta stlffneas
nnd felt its edge, but hts agitated
mind was evidently tncnpablo of de
termining its formidable- character,
Barbara suggested tho use of nn um
brella. "What for?" ndked Jim.
"Why, to skeer thorn cats nwny," re
plied tho surprised child. "Open It
sudden like, an' they'll Jest scampor
off. worse thnn whipped monkeys."
"Peers sort o' possible." reflective
ly remarked Captain Jim, "give mo the
umbrella." Barbara handed him an
old umbrella, and asked If ho didn't
wnnt something to tlo about his
neck, adding ominously, "them cntJ
'most anus do go for a roller a jug
lar.". Jim laid tho knlfo nnd pistol down
on tho floor, nnd proceeded to examine
tho umbrella, saying, "yes, I reckon
you bo right. Barb. I shud n-thlnk so."
With tho remark, "I'll git aomctbtn."
Barbara tripped lightly Into tho bed
room nnd quickly returned with ono
of ma's old colored walking skirts.
"You Jest wrap this 'bout yer neck
nn I'll hold tho Inmp."
Cnptaln Jim wranped tho skirt
about his neck, much as ho would a
largo muffler, and feeling some con
fidence In his armor ho said, "Barb.,
you wus born smart, you wus."
Barbara grasped tho lamp nnd Impa
tiently remarked. "Air you ready? Oh,
I forgot, thorn things must bo pulled
nway." Sho replaced tho lamp on the
floor and removed tho chairs and table,
piled against tho door.
Jlra gripped tho knlfo between his
teeth, hold tho umbrella with his left
hand, and pistol with his right, thon
said quietly, "I bo ready."
At that moment ma looked out from
tho bedroom. Tho dlght of Captain
Jim in his war paint sent her back
with screams of laughter.
Barbara angrily shouted to ma, "If
you don't stop that you'll scare them
Jim looked at tho child aghast.
"Damnod If tho gal ain't a-thlnkln' It
be a picnic."
Barbara having pushed tho barri
cade away, again picked up tho lamp.
"Now," said she. "now. whon I open
the door you Jest bounce right In there
llko a bolt o' Hghtnln. Come closer."
Jim began to rcallzo his danger. It
must be remembered that ho acted
from conscientious motives. It had
not occurred to htm that ho encounter
ed any but wild animals In the wood
Barbara's ridicule seemed to him
tho very essenco of Innocence, and It
had tho effect of making him very de
termined to drive tho animals away.
He was also urged on by tho secret de
sire to bo regardod by Annie as a hero,
yet now, at the moment ho Is about to
carry out bis determination, a quail
Ing feeling came ovor him, for ho said
softly and qulto seriously to himself.
"don't reckon thct I dass tacklo them
fr-oclous critters with them wecpons
Tho child heard htm and stared at
him. "What, air you skcert already7
said sho astonished.
Captain Jim returned tho child's
stare for a moment, thon pulled his
hat down over his eyebrows. Ho
humped his back and bowed his head
lo,w for a rush. "Count three, Barb.,
I bo a-goln' tew do or dlo for Annlo.
I shud a-thlnk so."
Barbara seized tho door knob with
her right hand, then slowly said, "ono,
two, tbrco, go," and pushed open tho
Jim rushed Into tho shed, spreading
tho umbrella and discharging the pis
tol right through it, and yelling in tho
rcoat frantic manner.
When Barbara suddenly pushed
open tho door, an Inrush of wind blew
out the light. "Gracious," said she,
"tho lamp's blow'd out. Whew, It's
cold. I'll Jest git a match," and so
flaying, she reached out and pulled
tho door shut.
Finding himself In sudden darkness.
Jim backed up against tho outer wall
and thon holding tho umbrella In
front of him, as a shield, ducked hjs
head under It for protection, and
veiled "scat," at ovory thrust of his
knife, which ho mado first on ono
aldo, then on tho other as fast an pos
sible. In tho meantime, whilo Barbara
leisurely lit tho lamp, ma camo out of
the bedroom and asked if Captain Jim
"I speck' ho id," answered tho child,
"anyway ho's n-hollorln' llko n greased

"Bring out tho light. Ynp, ynp!"
yelled Jim, as ho stabbod tho air with
tho bread knlfo.
Barbara answered. "I's comln. you
"Bo you a-goln' to be all night a-com-In'?"
again called Jim from tho shod.
"Scat. Yap, yap!"
Barbara openod tho door slowly nnd
entered tho shed. "Pshaw, tiler 'alnt
nuthln' herd," sho said.
Ma had followed the child to tho
door, and on seeing Captain Jim's rid
iculous position, sank on a chair near
tho door, In a spasm of laughter.
Barbara sententlously remarked to
Jim, "must a druv rom out that door,
Captain Jim quickly recovered his
composure and Maid "I Jest reckon
thoy got skcert and skunked off." Ho
then cautiously moved to tho shed

tho umbrella. "Most llko a faint
