Immediately after the third game
Trls Ford took Harney Lnrkln Into

urged Ford, "pointed out by everybody
as the man who pitched the Giant-killers
to another championship. Hut If
you lose, why you'll be nobody."
Meanwhile, James Wltitou Shulc
was giving enters to Krnest Stoadiiwti,
Just as the hecretnry of tho treasury
would have directed tlie chief of the
bocret service.
"You mustn't loe sight of Harney

Ernest Siendnian slowly nodded his
head. "I have been every place but In

man of few words.
That night Trls Ford ilept badly.

of bed sinking: "Toddy we win the

"morning after."
At two o'clock that fateful after

and Ernest Hteadmau had not report

words. Already bin quick mind wn

"Well, I appreciate your grand work.

I right?"
"Where you beon?" growled John
Benn, son of the club's president.
"Up-state," answered Harney uncon
cernedly. "What the devil you been doing?"
TMiliig this time of year?"
"Didn't catch nothing."
"You'll cutcli something when Trls
sots eyes on you."
Harney took the tnoM comfortable
chair In tho room, bit off o cihtoih
chew of tobacco, then picked up Inst
night's pink extra, and begun labori
ously to spell out the "riunhei fnuu
the Diamond."
Elsewhere Ernest Steadmnn wns ex
plaining to his mentor, James Wlnton
Shute. It appeared that Harney had
developed a robust thirst, which would
not be denied. Lacking confidence in
the Jiiil as ft haven, tlie worried keeper,
drawing heavily on his meager linn
glnnllon, had faked the story of a iiuir
velous trout pond up state. In the
crisis he conjured up such a remarka
ble picture of the pond, which win
"lousy with trout," as ho expressed It,
that Harney was seized with a sudden
determination to go thither.
"J tried to make him wait until the
pennant was cinched," explained
Stendman, "hut he sulci hu nlways
pitched better ball on a bellyful of
trout. Thought I planned It to get
back In time for yesterday's game."
"But I thought this was u phony
pond?" said Shute.
"It wns tlie one I told Barnej
about. Hut I hunted up the ni'nrul

ed Win.
"BccniiMC Harney wouldn't come un

starting until, he says, onu (.peekled

"You must have picked a Hue pond,''
cnld Shute.
"I did. They's nn Intake there from
a fiim-n-beur cheese factory and It's
killed ull the tlsh."
When Win Shute talked with Trls
Ford over tho telephotie about tho dis
appearance, reappenranco und "fool ex
planation," Trls replied :
"Well, we've won the pennant, and
they're here. What wo got to figure
on now Is so's It won't happen again.
Want to talk over tho world series
with you."
There was nn entirely new element

years of tho club's existence bail the
I'hlllles won a pennant. Yet within
ten yen is pennant winning had be
como something of n habit with I he
Giant-killers. Naturally, therefore,
they had the call on the patronage
of Father I'enn's homo town, having
coinmntidod popular fin or for num
ber of seasons. This popularity was
now In Jeopardy. If tho I'hlllles dem
onstrated that they woro tho bettor
team, the fans would turn to the new
kings of baseball the next season. For
the fan dearly loves n winner.
On form relying on the weak broth
er, Harney Larkln the Glant-Mllers
looked to have n shade tho best of
the argument. This being so, why
were the Hillllos the favorites In the
betting? Even money was at flrnt the
rule. Rut over In New York the
gamblers soon had the odds hammered
down until tho Nationals were favor
Ites at 10 to 0.

garding It ns the ever-present menace
to the Integrity of the national game;
and If ho thought u mnn, however
prominent, or Important, was seeking
n line on the Giant-killers as a guide
In betting. Trls would shut up like
it steel trap. It wasn't the bett'ng It
self, but the Infoimntlon behind the
odds, that troubled him.
It did not surprise him why. ho
did not kuow when he received a
letter, special delivery, from the Mxirt
Ing editor of one of the Now York pa
pers. The man who wrote It loved
fair ptuy and clean sport, und looked
upon Tils Ford as the apostle of tliu
one mid the exponent of the other.
The letter read:
"In this town the gamblers are
plunging on the I'hlllles. Regardless
of form, your club Is helng forced
down steadily In the betting. Jnko
Stinger and other big gamblers don't
look upon this betting proposition as
a 'gamu of chance.' not they. Gam
bling to them on such n scale means
a sure thli'g. It Is no Merct on the
Insltle. They say ou have only one
pitcher who can slop the I'hlllles. now
at the top of their butting, and that
Is Harney Larkln. They botist that
they have got him.
"Take this for what It's worth. You
doubtless kuow Larkln but I know
Stinger's crowd. They are betting on
a sure thing, or else somebody Is fool
ing them most awfully. Anyhow, look
out. Good luck."
After rending this letter to Win

"Tho money end of It don't worry

"Then whnt Is bothering you?"
Tho inunnger of the Giant-killers
hosltnted, his expression becoming ah
normally serious. "I don't know that
I ought to speak of It even It might
get tho Idea started, If It hasn't al
ready." "What Iden?" almost snapped Win
Shute. "What's on your chest? If
It's something threatening, we ought
to plan to bent It. Tell met"
Trls showed hli anxiety In his face.
"Kidnaping 1 that's what I'm afraid
of," he whispered to Win Shute.
"Kidnaping Rnrney Lnrkln? They'd

"Oh. they'd manage, that If they sot
out to try," said Trls gloomily.

beam of dnwntng solution.
