Of the B. a A,
Copyrlfht. 1901, by
(Continued from last week.)
"IfB from tue doctor. Yon needn't
be afraid to open, Jtj btff all right
He'll be back Saturday night, ind bt'
bringing Mr. Oakley with him. I came
tip to tee If you had any objection to
my letting the town know."
Mrs. Emory taw no reason Why the
knowledge of Oakley's return should
be withheld, and In less than half an
hour Antlocb, with bate breath, was
discussing the new on street corners
and over back fence.
That night the town council met In
secret session to consider the weighty
matter of his reception, for by com
mon consent was agreed that the
town must lake official action. It was
tuygestetl that be be given the free
dom of the city. This sounded largo
tnl met with' itwtant favor, but when
the question arose at to now the free-1
dom of the city was conferred the pres
ident turned, with a slightly embar
rassed ttlr, to the member who had
tnudo. the motion! lite member ex
plained, with some reserve, that be be
Uovet the most striking feature had to
'66 with the handing oyer of the city
keys to the guest of h nor. But unfor
tunately Antloch hnd no elty keys to
deliver. The only keys that by any
stretch of the Imagination could be to
called were those of the courthouse,
and they were lost
Here an appeal was made to the
Hon. Jeb Bnrrowa, whf wat usually
called In to straighten out any parlia
mentary tangles In which the council
became Involved. That eminent states
man was leaning dreamily against a
pillar at the end of the council cham
ber. On one of the cards be bad al
ready penciled the brief ' suggestion,
"Feed him and have out the band."
He banded the card to the president,
and the council heaved a fltgh of relief.
The momentoua question of Oakley's
official reception was settled. .
When Dan and Dr. Emory stepped
from No. T Saturday night the station
platform wat crowded with men and
boys. The brass band, which Antlocb
ftred with a love that stilled criticism,
perspiring and In dire baste, wat turn
ing the street corner half a block dis
tant Across the tracks at the railroad
hop a steam whistle shrieked an e
Dan" flancetf af the "doctor wins a
lightly puBsled air.
"What do you suppose' It the mat
ter?" he asked unsuspiciously.
- "Why, man, don't you nnderstand?
There was no need for him to say
more, for the crowd had caught sight
of Pan and a hundred voices cried:
"There be Is I There's Oakleyr
And In an Instant Antloch, giving
way to wild enthusiasm, was cheertns;
Itself black In the face, while above
tpe sound of cheers and the crash of
Susie the steam Tfhjstte at the shop
rleked and pealed.
The blood left Oakley's face. Be
looked down at the crowd and saw
Turner Joyce. He saw McCllntock
and Holt and" the men from the shops,
who were. If poeslhle, the noisiest of
all. He turned helplefwly to the doc.,
"It's get out of thlt," h Mid be
tween his teeth. Th rrdd and the
nolno nnd the exeltetiient recalled that
tfther uljftt When he hud ridden Into
Antloefa. As he spoke he swung him
fcelf dt'n from the steps of the coach,
and the crowd closed about him with
B Rind Ntiotit of wcleoiuc.
The doctor followed more slowly. As
ho gullied the platform the Hon. Jeb
Harrows hurried to his side.
"Where In he to go. IHh'T" he panted.
"To your houne or to the hotel?"
"To my house,"
"All right, then. The crowd's spoil
ing the whole Ininliiess. I've got an
address of welcome In my pocket that
I wh to have delivered, nnd there's to
be n supper at the r Ink toulglit. IVui't
let lilui ifet nway from you."
Meanwhile I nn hud smveeded In ex
trlcjiitnc himself from tlie oititoJict of

lie glnneed up quickly nnd found
himself face to face with Constance
There was a moment's silence, and
then Dan snld. the courage that had
brought him nil the way to Antlocb
suddenly desert'ng him:
"It's too bad, Isn't It? I hnd hoped
I could s4lp Iti and out of towu without
a li one bch'g 'ho w.ser."

"Constance, I bave returned because
I couldn't stay away any longer. I
tried to forget, but It wat no use."
Bhe bad withdrawn bar hand, but be

closed over It and held it fast He was
feeling a sense of ownership.

"But you knew I was coming too."
. "Oh, nor
It wat too dark for him to tee the
color that was slowly mounting to bar
"Constance, I float believe you," be
"I wat not sure you were coming"
Constance said weakly.
"You might bave known that I'd
come bark that I couldn't stay away."
"Don't yon think you have been a
long time In making that discovery?"
'"Well, yes, but when I saw your

"You mustn't blame btm, Constance
It was not to much what be said as
wbnt he didn't say. I .never knew any
one to be ruUe to ostentatious about
what was left unsetd."
Constance freed ber band and, shrink
ing Into a corner, covered her face.
She bad a pnluful realisation of tlio
direction those confidences mnst have
hewr Frobably ' the boy bad never had
on such clotlies before In his life. It
was masquerading, trying to appear
what he was not.
At this moment came a stumbling
outside and an InelTectual groping for
the latch string, then an "Open de do'!
I ml say, open de do'!"
Ilerkamer sprang forward to com
ply, and us the door swuug back n
short, squatty llgure half fell Into the
"Ttie half breed!" ejaculated Iler
kamer, forgetting to shut the door iu
his consternation. "What's up. Hup

"Rusted." responded ltn.'itlste, throw
ing out his arms dramatically. "Tree

With trembling hands Mrs. Ilerka
mer produced some bottles and band
ages from the cupboard; her husband
reached for his greatcoat
"We must hurry back to him." he
cried. "If his leg's broke It must 1
attended to nt once. You'll have to ex
cuse me." to his guests.
liaptlste raised his squatty figure to
Its full height.
"No good you go," he declared
sturdily, "bad way t'rou' ravine. Ko'
teen mile me come, all time fnlllu' an'
cllmblu'; take Ave, sU hour. You no
strong like young man. Itetter me go
'lone. Go two time quick. Leg broke,
want look ont for soon, M fix him,
den we stay two free day an' come
home all right, lies' way."
"The half breed's right" said Dr.
Brown. "If the leg's broken It needs
looking after at one, ami Baptists la
Just as g-vd at that work as I am.
Two, old fellows like us, Herkamer,
would or.!- be a drsg on Itnpt'.ste's
But old Herkamer paid not the least
notice. He was resolutely bumping bis
shoulders Into his greatcoat when he
felt a light touch upon bit arm.
"You had better stay here, Mr. Her
kamer," the young minister said qulet-
He strode out Into the gathering dark- I
. . i, -. -' . -,
ly. "Your son fs in need of help which
should reach him just as speedily as
possible. I am used to this sort of
thing and am young and strong; be
sides I bave tome little knowledge of
medicine. Mr. Baptlste and I can do
all that is necessary." He buttoned bis
coat and turned to the fcalf breed, who
had been listening with open derision.
But somehow, when Baptlste met the
straight gaze of this young fellow, the
contempt fuded from his face. Like
those who live close to nature, be was
accustomed to look Into eyes, and these
eyes were strangely legible.
"Well, I guess mebbe you go 'long,"
be acquiesced graciously, "dst Is, If
you t'luk you good for tough Job."
Old Herkamer stared. That soft
handed boy "used to this sort of thing,"
and Baptlste accepting him In prefer
ence to himself. What was the world
"Why, the boy can't get through that
ravine to save bis life," be blurted out
"Ain't go t'rou' ravine," Baptlste de
clared stolidly; "go roun' by bill dls
time. Take two time longer, but mo'
safe. Go In ravine, find snow flck,
mebbe no get t'rou'. Be go safe. But
no time wait for old peoples."
Herkamer snorted, but slowly re
moved bis coat
"Well, young feller," Ignoring Bap
tlste and speaking to the minister,
"you'd better put on my big coat an'
all the other warm stuff we can scare
op. Better freece comfortable long's
you're bound to freece. An' don't let
that half breed push you on too fast
We don't want no remains on our
bands even If Beth bat broke bis leg."
The young minister smiled.
"This costume Is all I need, thank
yon, Mr. Herkimer," be said reassur
ingly. '1 bad It made especially for
this sort of work, and It It very warm.
I Xlo not like heavy wrapt for bard
walking- fhe eierdse Is better. If the
wind Is nard'or the cold becomes very
severe i have a hood which I can
draw over my head and shoulders.
Now, Baptlste, about (he route.. Is tb!
ravine you speak of a plain trail?
Would a greenhorn like me be likely
to lose bis way r
''Xon; It be narrow, an' dere be rocks
high on hot' sides, an' de camp be
right lu de middle. It can't be miss If
one go dat fur. But we'aln't goln In
taken between her father, who only
desired her happluess, and the candid
Oakley, who only desired her love.
"Was there any use In my coming',
You must be fair with me now. It'
too serious a matter for you not to be.'-
"You thick I was not fair once?"
"1 didn't mean that, but you hav
"Kor the better. Mr. Oakley?"
"Infinitely." with blunt simplicity.
