Tbb Fight at Lost River Dam
It vas the hrp!est moment In the
life of Henry Mallinson. Just be
fore boarding the steamer for
America be bad received the news
that Ruth Ranger and Eugene Craig
hoi been svalloved up is a crevice
of the earthquake. He hastened to
send a wireless to Ranger, Inc., in
forming them of the death of the
bead of their firm.
Imagine the gantleman's surprise
when be appeared on deck as the
steamer pulled out of the harbor, to
meet Ruth and Craig face to face.
He started back as though he had
seen a gbost.
"I I didn't expect to have your
company this trip!" be stammered.
'It was a close call," smiled
Ruth, "bat we found a way out
through the crevice and reached the
wharf just in time. And now we're
already to tackle the Lost River
project, aren't we Gene," she add
ed smiling up at the young man.
That night, Mallmson did his best
to separate the girl from the ad
miring and adoring Craig. Finally,
he was successful and suggesied
that they walk back aft and watch
the wake of the ship m reality to (
get out of the way of Craig.
"And now, Henry," the girl smil
ed, "all that remains to square ac
counts is Lost River Dam, and Mr.
Craig is going to help me finish it."
"Forgive me if I hope you lose,"
Mallinson replied. "I I want you,
Rutn, and I am thinking of our
"So am I," the girl returned cool
ly. "That's why I am determined to
Meanwhile, at Lost River Dam,
Mallinson'a agents had been doing
their best to delay the construction
work. Two of Ruth Ranger's fore
men, drawing pay from Mallinson
secretly, quickly found an easy way
to earn their money. They had dis
covered the one weakness of Stor
row, the construction chief. Stor
row had, at one time, been a heavy
drinker, and being easily led he had
fallen to the temptations put in his
path by the two teen.
With Storrow drunk, and out of
the way, much darmge could be
done. Ruth's young protege, Dinny,
observed this and was wrought up
considerably over the maddening
state of affairs. He longed for the
return of Ruth and Craig so that
things would be on a norm basis
The day Ruth and Craig returned
the bomb broke, Dinny lost no time
in telling the girl (ust what the trou
ble as. Weathtrby, her Tice-presi-3ent,
did not know the source of the
trouble. Dinny finished by unload
ing words of advice.
"They need Mr. Craig at Lost
River Dam," he said, "it's just Stor
row s drinking that has delayed the
work, and now everything is gum
med up herce."
"Dinry, I think you're right,"
smiltd the girL "1 am going to put
Mr. Craig in charge of everything
ne is tne one man i can trust"
A week later, Mall insoc's confi
dential man, Sharkey, entered his
employer's office with a look of dis
trss on bis face. "At the rate
Craig is going," he declared, "Lost

With Craig at the helm things mov
ed. All of the workmen Liked htm
excepting trtose in the employ of
Maliinson and they were willing to
do his bidding. As be sat at his
dek, two surly looking laborers en
trrrd and made petty complaint
Craig looked up at them, astonish
ed, and discussed the question. The
workmen would not fasten to reason.
Finally Craig closed the Interview.
"Kesulti are what I want," he
said, "not talk." He fhee arose and
walked from the shack. Dirmy ap
crouched him smiling.
" Dinny," he said, "do me a favor

were following him, keeping well

ing no small amount of her thoughts
more even than the important
work that had to be completed. Be
sides his strong physical attractions,
Craig was a man of dynamic energy
ana iorce, ana it was no wonder,
perhaps, that the eirl felt a stranpe
fluttering in her heart every time she
thought of him.
And with these thouehts came also
thoughts of Mallinson, and the few
words he had inserted in her con
tract that Ruth would not only for.
ten nauntej valley if she could not
repay the million dollars, but also
become the bride of Mallinson. The
girl did not relish this. Her spirit
of bravado in the face of opposi
tion had prevented her from pro
testing when Mallinson made the
added stipulation. She had not
thought seriously of the fact that
she might have to marry Mallinson;
not until she had encountered Craie
and he had come to mean every
thing to the girL
Kutn scowled a bit as she rode
through the camp on her favorite
horse. She wondered how it would
all come out. With Eugene Craig at
the helm of her engineering project
it seemea as tnougn sne could not
lose. Under the able leadership of
the young man the workmen were
all turning to their tasks like beav
ers. Only a few, still faithful to
Mallinoon, were making trouble.
Ruth stopped a moment to zaze
around her. Her eyes finally sought
the dam, rapidly nearing construc
tion. Then something she saw
caused her to start and lean for
ward in her saddle. On the very
top of the dam a struggle was go
ing on. Three men were fighting furi
ously, and one man it seemed
was Craig. Ruth dug her spurs in
to the side of her horse and gal
loped up the slope toward the top
of the huge dam.
And it was Craie. As he reached
the top of Lost River dam, the same
two men he had spoken curtly to in
nis orr.ee nad approached him. Craig
gave an order which was not obey
ed. The next thing, much to the
young man's surprise, the two work
men sprang upon him.
Craig fought back like a fiend.
The very thought of his men rising
against him spurred on his anger.
But the odds were too great and it
was a losing game. Pressed to the
utmost, Craig retreated backwards
toward the water side of the dam.
In the next rush, his two enemies
got a grip on him that he could not
fight off. They raised him aloft
and hurled him over the brink of
the dam into the water. Then they
Ruth, seeing this as she approach
ed, whirled about in another direc
tion to go to Craig's rescue. She
made for the bank of the reservoir
instead of the top of the dam. In
the water, Craig was so weak and
groggy from his fight that he was
having difficulty keeping his head
above the surface. Ruth reached
the water, leaped in and swam stur
dily toward Craig. With the girl's
assistance he was able to get to the
shore without danger. Craig was
about to open his eyes when he felt
a pair of warm lips pressed firmly
against his own. He decided to
wait a, moment before coming back
Then Dinny appeared on the
scene. "Them instruments nave ar
rived," he informed Craig, 'and
they're in the shed at the end of
that railroad track.
"Great!' the young man ejaculat
ed, now thoroughly recovered.
"Come on, Ruth, he added. Let l
give them the once over. Dinny, I
wish you'd return to my o"rice and
keep your eyes peeled for mischief."
Dinny reluctantly left the young
people who slowly wended their way
toward the shack a small structure
that was located at the end of a
short railroad track, and acted as a
sort of buffer. Neither of them no
ticed the two" men who had attacked
Craig following them. Craig's ene
mies grinned as they aaw the two
young people enter the shed.
"I got it!" one of them exclaimed1.
"We'll throw that switch, turn one
of the cars loor.e so it'll smash that
spur track buffer and we will knocli
them two straight into kingdom
come." In another moment the deed
was done. Grinnirg fiendishly, the
two workmen watched as the car
speeded down the grade, shot off
the end of the track and smashed
into the rickety shed where Ruth
and Craig were examining the new

1TATISTICS tell us that the average milk

Then, if extra care in selection and breeding, and a
