It was ths only thing to bs dons,
and yst Carter hated to do It. He
had been prepared for anything but
the boyish, appealing eyes which
looked up at him from the crevice be-
tween ths two logs. But Duty, spelled
with a flaunting capital, demanded It,
and Duty had ever been the lodeetar
of Carter's life. It afterwards seemed
to htm that the thoughts of a thou-
sand yearH crowded his brain between
the time he Identified the hunted man
by the tell-tale scar upon his cheek
and had seen the man's hand move,
move toward his hip pocket—a move-
ment which caused Duty to call upon
Carter for the most extreme measuree
—and the time when, as the dogs
strained at the leash, he pulled the
His orders had been to shoot et the
least suspicious movsment. Well, be
bad carried out his orders to ths let-
ter, and yet he felt as guilty as though
hs himself wsrs thrlcs sn outlaw. The
smoking weapon fell to the ground
with a dull thud—It had done its work
though the aim had not been good.
One quick look assured Carter of this,
then he turned away to tie the blood-
hounds where they could not be seen
by the man they had Just tracked to
his death. Retracing his steps he
dropped down on his knees besids the
"God forgive me!" he cried as the
eyes, more eloquent than ever In their
suffering, again looked Into his.
"Never mind," came in a whispered
answer. "It—had to be, but I—I'm
about done for I—think."
The outlaw lay witn one hand
pressed to his side, while through his
Angers bright, fresh blood oozed. Car-
ter had considered himself a strong
man, but at this sight a sickening
wave of weakness assailed him.
If it were only the bold desperado
his imagination had pictured, instead
of this frank-faced boy, who lay writh-
ing beside him!
"God! I wish it hadn't have had to
be me!" broke from him.
"And—I—" spoke the other with dif-
ficulty—"I only—wish your aim bad
"Isn't there something I can do to
ease you?" inquired Carter, trying to
pull himself together.
Quickly divining. Carter moved nearer
and raised the sufferer's hsad on his
knee. Though elated to think It lay
within his power to add, be It ever so
strangsnsss of thus pillowing the
head of the man he had Just shot la
"BetterT" he asked a trifle hoareely.
"Oh. yes—that is, I—dont mind—
"Would you like—whisky?"
The outlaw managed to move his
head in assent, and Carter after pot-
ting his hand carefully to bis hip-
pocket for his flask, held the liquor to
I don't know—why I—should want
to—prolong it—but I seem to," mut-
tered the sufferer, as Carter set down
the flask. "That eternal fight for ilfe

have given myself up after—after I—

ly—understand until—they are—up
there and know that it Is his lift

we do that after. It's—simply the
Though the strong liquor had re-
vived the dying man somewhat his
breath still came in deep groans
"But the flret—Jones—you do not
-egret that?" Carter found himself say-
"Regret? A thousand times—no!
His vehemence caused the sufferer a
lee per pang of agony, and with
blanched llpe he subelded Into silence.
Carter pressed the flask again to hie
"Thanks." mattered the outlaw
rhea es though with an effort bs
•cased hlmedf again. "I—Id like to

Then through the trees, glad so ma
snd gay as the twitter of the birds,
came the sound of a woman's volea
singing. It startled the silence of thai
woods, and a greater contraat to tha
tragedy which had Just been enacte*
there could not he Imagined.
The outlaw bad raised a bagger#
"Do you knew what that meaner ha

louder. Carter went from red la

became certainty, and he brohe out:

song I taught bar—over at Albany
where I met her."
"She visited there—" murmured the
other dully. "My God!" he cried aa a
clearer understand I Ag of the situation
was borne home to him.
The dying man's face had under-
gone a change. Already lined from
the agony he was suffering, and damp
with the dew of death, it became aa
awful sight to behold.
"Do you understand—don't you
see?" The words fell from his stiff
lips almost lnaudlbly. "For the lore
of God, man," be broke off—"don't let
her know—keep It from her, and yet—
and yet—let—me see her."
For a moment Carter stared, then
the nearlng voice warned him into
"She aball never know," he said,
answering the eyes which looked ap
Into his ss trustingly es a dog might;
"and yet you aball aee her." "
A little leter, In enawer to a whistle
from Carter, there burst Into the cir-
cle formed of fallen logs and under-
growth, and hidden by trees, the fig-
ure of a girl. She was bareheaded aad
flushed, end the lore of life burned
from her eyes. The concluding stralna
of her song trembled for en lnstaat aa

"Don't be alarmed, but there baa

But even before he bad finished
speaking the girl bed turned a deaf
ear to him, and with the sublime conr
age of womanhood had pushed him
aside until shs herself plllowsd the
sufferer's head. Her hands were busy
ministering the hundred and one little
attentions a woman has at her ooaa-
mand and of which a man knows noth-
ing; only a touch, a caress, here aad
there perhaps, but only those of ne
who have experienced know.
Carter, after receiving the lightning
look of gratitude from the dying
man's eyes, had turned away. But frag-
ments of the whispered colloquy

woman, though grief had already
