"I'eople Bald afterward that I'd gone
there purposely to pick a cjuurrel with
Sharp, and his helper, who, It seems,
was in the yard back of the smithy
getting a wagon tire, swore he saw me
through a window as I entered and
that I struck the first blow. He may
have seen only the end of It and really
believed I did begin It, but that's a
ample of how tilings got twlHted. No
body believed my motive was what I
aid It was. The Jury found me guilty
of murder, and the judge gave me a
life sentence. A good deal of a fuss
was made over what I did at the fire
last winter. Hart told me he'd sent
you the papers."
Das nodded, and bis fattier contin

mission work at the prison took the
matter up and got me my pardon. It's
a fearful and a wicked thing for a
man to lose his temper, Dannie. At
first I was Mtfpr against every one
who had a hand In sending me to
prison, but I've put that all from my
heart. It was right I should lie pun

ashes from his pipe.

There's no use talking, Mr. Oakley,
you've done big tilings for the shops,"
"Well, I am getting some work for
them, and while there Isn't much profit
In It, perhaiw. It's a great deal better
than being Idle."
"Just a whole lot," agreed McClln

General Cornish Is sick of putting his
hand in his pocket every six months to
keep it out of bankruptcy. You are
enough of a business man to know he
won't stand that sort of thing forever.

needs the money, but some one's got to

Oakley was slow to anger, but tie bad
always fought stubbornly for what he
felt was due him, and he wished the
editor to understand that the manage
ment of the B. and A. was distinctly
not his province.
Ryder's eyes were half closed, and
only a narrow slit of color showed be
tween the lids.
"I am very much afraid we won't hit
It off. I legin to see we aren't going
to get on. I want you to keep Hoad

power to be of some service to you.
You will need some backing here, and
even a country newspaper can manu
facture public sentiment. Now If we
aren't to be friends you will find me
on the other side and working Just ns

Oakley Jumped up.
"I don't allow anybody to talk like
that to me. I u ui running this fot

mine, and you can start in and m.init
