OAKLEY wuh ulonc In the Ure Ki'iii-rul ofllren of the Huckle-U-rry Hue, an the Huckhorn and Antloch railroad waa coinmoiily called by the public, which it lxtrnyed In Die matter of nieiiln and coniiectloiiH. He wim lulling lazily over hlH deak with a copy of the local pa per before him nnd the Ktem of n dis reputable cob pipe between hla teeth.

No. 7, due at .1:10, had Junt pulled out with twenty nil nil ten to make up between Antloch and Harrlnou, the wcHtem tennliiim of the line. The II o'clock whlxlle had blown, and the men from the car hhopn, n dlnto'. one atory build- liiK that Joined the general ottli'ea on the cant, were HtniiiirllnK off home. A'tohh the tracka at the UKly little de pot the ticket nyi'iit and telegraph op erator had locked up and hurried nwuy under one umbrella the moment No. 7 wuh clear of the platform. From the ynrda every one wuh gone but Milton Met 'Unlock, the nuiHti-r incchutilc, and Dutch Pete, the yard bond. Protected by ilrippliiK yellow OIlHklna, they were liUHy repalrliiK a wheezy awltch engine that had been Incontinently bucked In to n aiding and the ciiIhiohc of a freight. Oakley whh waltlnK the return of Clnrence, the ofllce Imij-, whom be hud aent uptown to the kh ofllce. HavlnfC read the two rolumiiN of local and per Bona I kokhIp urranKed under tike head- Ink "People You Know," he swept hla ntWHpiiier Into Die waatebaHket and piiHhed back hla clmlr. Tlie window nenrent hla deak overlooked the yanla and a Ionic line of Rhuhhy day coachea and battered frelxht cara on one of the aldtiiKH. They were there to be rebuilt or repaired. Thin meant a new lease of life to the ahopa, which had never proved profitable. Oakley bad been with the Huckle berry two nionthi. The Brat Intimation the ofllce force received that the new man whom they had ten expectlnR for over a week bad arrived In Antloch and waa prepared to take bold waa when he walked Into the office and quietly Introduced hlmaelf to Kerr and Holt. Former general mannrceni had arrived by ajieclal after much prelimi nary wiring. The manner of tlielr o liiK hud beeu leaa aectactilnr. They one and all failed, and (ivneral for nUh cut abort the daya of their pride uud dlNplay. Naturally the office had teeu tlie leiiMt bit Hkeptlcal concerulnu (Ink Icy und IiIh capnbllltleH, but within a week a clmntce wiih patent to every one con nected with the road. The triilim be Kan to regard tlielr schedulcH, and the Hhii'kneiH and untlirirt In the yards Kiive I'lnce to an ordered prosperity. Without any apparent effort he found work for tlie xhops, a few extra men eicii ere taken on. and there was no hint n jet of half time for the sum HUT tlMlltllS. lie wi'.s II broad shouldered, loin; limbed, cnrruetlc Joinii; fellow, with frank blue eyes that looked one s.piai-e l.v In the face.

"Only a little over half an hour, Clar ence. I icuesa you mny as well giflioroe now." "OixmI ulK'it. Mr. Oakley," with hap py alacrity. "Good lilicht, Clureuce." The door Into the yurdu cloned with u batiK. and Clarence, Kleefully sklp plnK the mini puddles which lay In his path, hurried hla small pernoii off through the rain ami mlHt. Oakley glanced at his lettern. One he saw was from General Cornish, li prove I to he a brief note, scribl.ed in pencil on the back of it teU-Kram blank. The Kdieral would arrive hi Antloch that nljiht on the lute train. He wished Oakley to meet him The other letter was In an unfamiliar bund. Oakley opened It. I.lku the first. It was brief ami to the point, but he dlil not at once urusp Its ineiinluc. This Is what he read : Ilear Hlr-I Inclose two newspaper clip plnun willed fully explain themselves. Your father Is mm Ii lntereste-l In know InK your wher-alMMits. I li'- not fur-nlsh4-i him with any Mlnlte lat'orrnation en Itlts point, as 1 have not f-lt at l.h rty to tto so. However, 1 was nMc to t- I) him I helleveil ,ml were ilnlntf w.-:l. BhnuM you desire to write him. I will Kl'ollv unilertiike to '- that aay ioin.n i nlentinn iu may s- nd care of tills oftu-e will reach him. Very nlncerelv yours, EZHA ItAHT. It wan like a bolt from a clear sky. He drew a deep, ipilck breath. Then he took up the newspaper clippings. One wan n florid column and u half ac count of a lire in Uie hospital ward of the Massachusetts slate prison uud deult particularly with the heroism of Hokit Oakley, a life prisoner, In lead ItiK a rescue. The other clippiiiK, mere ly a paniK'niph, wan of more recent date. It announced that Roger Oak ley had liecn purdoned. Oakley had aenrcely thoueht of his father In yeara. Tle mun and hla con cerna hla crime and hla trnKlc atone mrut -had panned completely out of bin life, but now he waa free. If he chose. to enter It ukuIii. There waa such aud dennesn In the thought that he tunied atrk on the moment; a great wave of elf pity enveloped him, the recollec tion of hla RtrUKglea and bin nhaine the bitter, nelpleaa ahame of a child returned. He felt only rem-ntinent to ward this man whose crime had blunt ed hla youth, robbing him of every ordinary advantage, and clearly tlie end waa not yet True, by degrees, he had grown awuy from the memory of It nil. He had long since freed himself of the fear thut his secret illicit lie discovered. With success he had even acquired u certalu complacency. Without know ing his history, the gisid or the bad of It, bis world had accepted him for whnt he was really worth. He was neither cowardly nor selfish. It was not alone the memory of his own luird ships that embittered tit in and turned his heart against his father. His mother's faiv, with Its hunted, fugitive j look, rose up la-fore him In protest. He recalled their wanderings In search of some place where their story was not known and where they could begin life anew, their return to Hurtoti, ami then lief death. For years It had been like a dream an l ln he a only the slou. lung (ig lire of the old convict, w Inch seemed to menace him. and remeiiiiM'ic.l only the c 11 oiis,.,l:ie1, up,, n Irs eriino. ...,'. wr.al s o ,m,v v.i- w .!! :.- .i.i'e ed to. Since Hart knew, there must be others ulso who knew. He took up the newspaper clippings gain. Bv an odd coincidence they had reached him on the very day the gov ernor of Massachusetts had set apart for his father's release. ' ' " CllAPTER II. OAKLEY drew down the top of bis desk und left the office. Be fore locking tlie door, on which some predecessor hud caused tlie words, "Department of Transpor tation and Mulntenuncc; No Admit tance Except on Business," to be sten ciled In black letters, he called to Mo t'llntock, who, with Dutch Pete, was still fussing over the wheezy switch en gine. "Will you want In the office for any thing, M'llt?" The master mechanic, who had been swearing at a rusted nut, got up from his knees and, dangling a big wrench In one bund, buwled back, "No, I guess not." After turning the key on the depart ment of truiiKportutlon and niulute nauce, Oakley crossed the tracks to the station and made briskly off uptown, with the wind and rain blowing In his face. He lived ut the American. House, the best hotel the place could boaBt. In Antloch Oakley was something of a figure. He was the first munager of the road to muke the town his perma nent headquarters, and the town was grateful. It would have swamped blm with kindly attention, but he had studi ously Ignored all advances, preferring not to make friends. In this he had not entirely succeeded. The richest man in the county. Dr. Emory, who was a goisl deal of u patrician, had taken a fancy to blm and had insisted upon eutertalulng him at n formaj din ner. It was tlie most Impressive func tion Oakley had ever attended, aud even to think of it still sent the cold chills coursing down his spine. That morning, he had chanced to meet Dr. Emory on the street, und the doctor, who could always be trusted to say exactly what he thought, bud tak en him to task for not calling. There was u reason why Oakley had not done so. The doctor's daughter hud Just re turned from the east, and vague ru mors were current concerning her beauty and elegance. Now, women were altogether beyond Oakley's keu. However, since some responsive cour tesy was evidently expected of hlin, he determined to have It over with ut once. Imbued with this Idea, he went to his room after supper to dress. An be nrrayed himself for the ordeal he sought to recall a past experience In line with the present. Burring tlie re cent dinner, his most ambitious social experiment hud lieen a hrakeinau's ball In Denver years liefore when he was conductor on a freight. It was still ruining, a dlscourugingly persistent drizzle, when Oakley left his hotel und turned from tlie public square Into Main street. This Main street was never an Inqiosing thor oughfare, and a week of steady down pour made It from curb to curb a river of quaking mud. It was lit at long in tervals by Hlckering gas lamps thut glowed like corpulent fireflies lu tlie misty darkness beneath the dripping maple houghs. As In the case of most western towns, Antloch had known dreams of greatness, dreams which had not beeu realized. It stood stock still In all its raw, ugly youth, with the rigid angularity its founders had Im posed upon It when they hacked and hewed a spot for It In the pine woods, whose stunted second growth encircled It on every side. The Emory home had once been II farmhouse of the better class.
