Impossible! There was that tomb
stone still up In the store. Sam had
not yet been dislodged. And Seffy had
not yet arrived where he might put
the awful question—there was a recog-
nized period for this, and events had
put It further and further off! Indeed,
he shuddered when he thought of it
—even then, after that understanding
with Sally!—and contemplated getting
his father to do it for him.
It had become known, in Ihe wire-
less way such things spread In the
country, that there had been a tenta-
tive maklnc-up between Bcffy and
Sally. But Seffy was still not received
In public. Nor did he appear with
Sally! Nor might he call upon her
There must be some open defiance and
victory which all could see and undet

III he had met and vanquished his rival
In public. It was the primitive right
of the strongest, proved physically
here as in the Roman circus. Seffy
had never shown himself a master of
material prowoBs. He demurred a bit
ut such a plunge into the arena. But
there was no other way.
"Why, Sef," advised his father,
"after that It's a dead open and shut
game. Yuu#better do tho biggest sing
you ken—and that's the end of it. If 1
had Sally on my side, I wouldn't keer

they'll run after you and send you

such sure slug. 1 had to tako my
chances wlas you' mammy! And It
was three other fellers wlsj fljtlr

your daddy was close up against tho
church door. And when she come out
he didn't waste no time a saying polite,

off all that dictionary stuff! Yasslrl
For right opposite me waB Bill Elsen-

"He was mighty quick, but mlgh y
polite! I knowed he'd say that fool-
ishness about being pleased to see her
home. Well, she come out and I chust
grabbed. And while I was inarching
on like a conquering hero, informing
her that It was a nice efening, I could
hear Hill on the off side, gitting out
that stuff 'bout pleasure and seeing
her home. Nancy says, says she:
Sank you, Mr. Klsenkrout, I'm suited;'
and I laughed like hell! And, begosh-
ens. Nancy laughed too! And that
settled Hill for eTer more! Oh, It's
nosslng like a laugh at the right time
to kill a man off! Bill left town the
next day. He had too. And he didn't
show up tell the next Tall! Sef, you
got a sure sing. And, begoshens, you
might just as well finish Sam up In
the same job—put him out of town.
Next Sunday you watch Sam. Keep
right opposite him. Then git your
arm in action about a second sooner.

say any foot sings about the pleasure
of seeing her home. Do It. And,
w*hen Sam gits his work In, laugh!
Laugh like a bull! And git Sally to
laugh. I bet you two dollars and ten
cents that Sam won't be In town the
Like a campaign speech waa the
effect of this!
Seffy objected no longer. He said
be would do It all! Perhaps this, too,
got about. At all events, before the
next Sunday, the Interest created by
their rivalry was more than equal to
the voice of. the Gospel. AH the town-
ship would be at church!
Sam would not be dislodged. He
Invented the most diabolical schemes
for sequestrating Sally to himself dur-
ing tlie week which followed—Into
which guileless Sally often fell—and
which seemed to proclaim her suitor
to be himself. Sam, you remember,
had access to Sally, but Seffy had not.
Seffy confessed that this looked sinis-
ter. True, he remembered all that had
passed between them. But once betors
he hud been in error.
So that Seffy, before the week's
end. began once more—and more
strongly—to deprecate the necessity
for this public demonstration 0! his
status. Ills Tather demanded it aB a
diplomatic necessity, inasmuch as
Sally still retained Sam on a basis so
much like his own as to make the sit-
uation extremely embarrassing to even
Old Baumgartner, who had let it be
known that he was the active coadju-
tor of his son. To vanquish Seffy wag
to vanquish him, and he, IT not Seffy
himself, screwed Seffy's courage to the
sticking point. After this, Seffy weak-
ened no more, but proclaimed his pur-
pose. II was generally conceded that
the one who failed now would have to
So here was retiring little Seffy
Torced by circumstances Into a public
rivalry which he detested, and, It
may as well be contessed—Teared. It
must, also, be explained that Sally's
course in maintaining these two strings
to her bow until the breaking moment
was not only universally commended,
but was the unswerving custom oT the
vicinage Tor girls so fortunate as to
have two strings. It was held likely
to force one or the other to the point
—and this was the purpose of rustlo
coquetry! And Sally's coquetry was
not only acknowledged; It was tol-
erated. and. I fear, encouraged. And,
alas, It bad been as sweet to her as
vinous dissipation to men. But now
It had made not only her own, bui
