"You'ro perfectly horrid" she

Shortly nfter Shirley's departure

"All that doesn't explain your
cheerful attitude though."
"Oh but It does. I've told you
about old Duncan McTnvlsh. Molra's

liryce continued: "When I tired the

"Itecnuse I mnke It my business to

do not assume thnt I would lose the
old scoundrel without making n light
for him do you? Why lluck he's
been on the Cardigan pay roll thirty
years nnd I only fired him In order
to reform him. Well last week I sent
ono of Mac's old friends down to
Wllllts purposely to cnll on him and
Invite him out 'for n tlmo;' but Mnc
wouldn't drink with him. No sir he
couldn't bo tempted. On the contrary
ho told tho tempter that I had prom-
ised to give him back Ids Job If ho re-
mained on the wnter wngon for one
year; ho was resolved to win back his
Job nnd his self-respect."
"1 know whnt your plan Is" OrIIv"

"You will-recall that from the very

"Ah the poor Pennington I Mon

"You wicked wicked mnnl"
lluck Ogllvy lifted his lapel nnd

plitj'd around the corners of bis hu-
morom mouth. "Ah" lie murmured
presently "life's pretty fcwect Isn't
Kvcnts followed ench other with re-
freshing rapidity. While the crew of
tho big locomotive on the crossing
busied themselves getting up steam
Sexton and Jules Ilondenu tolled nt
the loading of the dlscnrded boiler nnd
heavy castings aboard two Hat cars.
Ily utilizing the steel derrick on tho
company's wrecking car this task was
completed by noon and nfter luncheon
tho mogul backed up the main lino
past the switch Into the Lngunn
(Jrnmlo yards; whereupon the switch
engine kicked the two tint cars and the
wrecking car out of the ynrd nnd down
to the crossing where tho obstructions
were promptly unloaded. Tho police
watched the operation with alert Inter
Copjrlcbt by Ptttr II. Kjne
est but foreborc to Interfere In this
hlgh-hnnded closing of a public thor-
opghfare. To Sexton's annoyance nnd secret
opprclicnsion llryco Cardigan and
lluck Ogllvy promptly nppcared on tho
scene both ery cheerful and lnlsh
with expert ndtlco as to the I'est
method of expediting the Job In hand.
To Uryce's sprprlse Jules Itondenu ap-
peared to take secret enjoyment of
this vood-nnlured dialling of the Ln-
gunn Ormido manager. Occasionally
he eyed llryco curiously but without
nnlmus nml presently ho Unshed thu

"Ily gnr sho don' pay for hnve hard

"Jlobbeso" Itondenu suggested hope-
fully "M'stoilr likes me for woods
"Why what's the mntter with Pen-

The color mounted slowly to the
woods bully's swarthy cheek. "Made

looking rather wistfully nt Ilryce. "I

"You think Miss Sumner dislikes

"I don' theenk. I know." Ho sigh-
ed ; his huge body seemed to droop.
"I nm out uPzeo good luclc now" ho
murnnred bitterly. "HTcrrbody sho

sighed. "Dose beeg trees I 7n QuAiec
we have none. In zee woe.1s M'sleur

calloused hairy baud oer his heart.
"W'eu I cut your beeg trees M'sleur
I feel llko hell."
"That Infernal gorllln of a man Is
a poet" lluck Ogllvy declared. "I'd
think twice before I let him get out
of tho country Ilryce."
"'Whose salt ho ents bis song bo
sings' " quoth liryce. "I forgive you
ltondeau nnd when I need a woods-
boss like you. I'll send for you."
At eleven o'clock Saturday night tho
deputy United Stntes marshal arrived
In Sequoia. Upon tho advice of Buck
Ogllvy however; he made no ttempt
nt service that night notwithstanding
the fact that Jules ltondeau nnd his
bullies still gunrded the crossing. At
eight o'clock Sunday morning how-
ever Ilryce Cardigan drote him down
to the crossing. lluck Ogllvy was nl
ready there w Ith his men superintend-
ing erection of a huge derrick close
to the heap qf obstructions placed on
Ltbo crossing. Sexton wns watching
hlra uneasily nnd flushed as Ogllvy
pointed him out to the marshal.
"There's your meat marshal" he
announced. The marshal nppronched
nnd extended toward Sexton n copy
of the restraining ordar The better
struck It nlde and refused to nccept
It whereupon the deputy marshal tnp-
ped him on tho shoulder with It.
"Tag I You'ro out of the game my
friend" ho said pleasantly.
As the document fluttered to Sex-
ton's feet the latter turned to Jules
Itondenu. "I can no longer take
charge here Ilmidoau" he explained.
"I am f oi bidden tp Interfere."
"Jules ltondeau can do ze Job" the
woods-boss replied easily. "Zo law
she hnve not restrain' me. I guess
mebbeso you don' tnfce dose theengs
away eh M'sleur Cardigan. Mjself
I Ink see."
The deputy mnrshnl handed Iton-
denu n paper nt the same time show-
ing his bndge. "You're out too my
friend" he laughed. "Don't be fool-
ish to try to'buck the law. If you do
I shall have to place n nice little pair
of handcuffs on you nnd throw you In
Jnll nml If jou resist nrrest I shall
hnvo to shoot you. I hne ono of
these little restraining orders for
every able-bodied mnn In the Lngunn
Ornnde Lumber company's employ
thnnks to Mr. Ogllvy's foresight; so
It Is useless to try to bent this gnmo
on n technlcnllty."
Sexton who still lingered mndo n
gesture of surrender. "Dismiss your
crew Ilondeau" ho ordered. "We're
whipped to n fraz7le."
A glenm of plenstire not unmixed
with triumph lighted the dnrk ejes of
the Fronch-Cnnndfon. "I tol' M'sleur
Sexton she ennnot fight M'sleur Cnrdl-
gnn nnd win" ho snld simply. "Now

"Shut up" Sexton ronred petulant-
ly. Itondenu shrugged contemptuous-
ly turned nnd with n sweep of his
great nrm Indlcntcd to Ills men thnt
they were to go; then without n back-
ward glance to see that they followed
the woods boss strode awny In tho
direction of the Lngunn Grande mill.
Arrived nt tho mill olllco. ho entered
look down tho telephone nnd called
up Shirley Sumner.
"Mndemolselle" he said "Jules
Itondenu spenks to you. I have for
you zee good 'news. Ilryce Cardigan

And without further ado he hung

demanded. "You're going to qultl

"I will hnvo my time M'sleur" said
Jules Ilondenu. "I go to work for n

"You'll hnvo to wnlt until tho Col-

Without further protest Sexton
opened the safe counted .out the
wages due nnd took Itondenu's-re-celpt.
'Thnnk you Sl'sleur" tho woods
boss growled ns he swept the coin
Into his pocket. "Now I work for

ly on tlie floor nqd deported locking
the door behind hint yiud taking the
key. At the corner of the building
where the telephone lino entered tho
olllep ho paused .jerked pnee at the
wire nml passed on leaving the brok-
en ends on the ground.
In the rouhdh6ist ho found trie

for stenm In tho .boiler.' The with-
drawal of bqtl) Iqcpmotlves brief ns
had been their ubsence .had cnusod
n glut of logs nt the Lngunn Grnndd
landings nnd Sexton wns catching up
with the traffic Tiy sepdlng the switch
engine crew out for one irnlnlond
even though It was Sunday. Tho crew
had been used to receiving orders
from ltondeau and moreover they
wero not nware of his recent action;
henco nt his command they ran tho
swftch engine out of the roundhouse
coupled up the two flat cars and tho
wrecking car nnd bncked down to tho
crossing. Upon nrrlvnl Jules Iton-
denu lenned out of tho cnb window
and hailed Ilryce. "M'sleur" he snld
"do not bozzer to mnke zeo derrick.
I have here zeo wrecking enr nil you
need; pretty soon we lift him off zee
crossing I tell you eh M'sleur Cnrdl
Ilryce stepped over to the switch
engine nnd looked up nt his late en-
emy. "By whose orders Is this train
here?" be queried.
"Mine1' Ilondenu quickly answered.
"M'eleur Sextos 1 iov tla like ona
lectio pig nnd lock her In her ofllca.
I work now for M'sleur."
And ho did. Ho waited not for a
conflrmntlon from his new mnstcr but
proceeded to direct opcfntlons like
tho born driver nnd lender of men
thnt ho wns. With his Intc employ-
er's gear he fastened to tho old cast-
ings nnd the boiler lifted them with
the derrick on the wrecking enr nnd
swung them up nnd nround onto the
flat enrs. Ily the middle of ho nfter-
noon tho crossing wns once more clear.
Then the Cnrdlgnn crew fell upon It
whllo Jules Ilondenu ran the train
bock to tho Lngunn Grande yards dis-
missed his crew returned to tho mill
ofllce nnd released the monager.
"You'll pny through tho nose for
this you scoundrel" Sexton whim-
pered. "I'll fix you you traitor."
"You fcex nothing. Sl'sleur Sexton"
Ilondenu replied Imperturbnbly. "Who

upon being n foemnn worthy of nny
On Tuesdny he returned to Sequoln.
Sexton related to him In detnll the-
events which had transpired since his
departure but elicited nothing more
than n noncommittal grunt.
"There Is one more matter sir which
will doubtless be of Interest to yqu"
Sexton continued apologetically. "Miss
Sumner called mo on the telephone
yesterday nnd Instructed me formally
to notify the board of directors of the
Lagunn Grande company of a speclnl
meeting of the board to be held hero
nt two o'clock this nfternoon. In view
of the Impossibility of communicating
with vou whllo you were en route I
conformed to her wishes. Our by-lnws
as you know stipulate that no meet-
ing of the board shall bo called with
out formnl written notice to ench di-

ously." "Whnt the devil do you moan Sex-
ton by conforming to her wishes?
Miss Sumner Is not a director of this
company." I'cnnlngton'M voice wns
hnrsh nnd trembled npprehrtislvely.
"Miss Sumner controls forty per
cent of the Lngunn Grande stock sir.
I took thnt Into consideration."
"You lie!" Pennington nil lt
screnmed. "You took Into considera-
tion your Job ns secretary nnd general

He rose nnd commenced pnclng up
nnd down his ofllce. Suddenly he
paused. Sexton still stood beside his
desk watching him respectfully.1 "You

nnd leave me alone."
Sexton departed promptly glnnclng

five minutes of two. He passed Shir-
