was on hs way to see how tho

Selter and I wondered if he had been
fcharlug my vigil nnd to what end.
He enme out luto tiie road at the
point where the ditch crossed it still
running; ana when he held on up tho
dry bed of the ditch Instead of keep
ing to the road I underxtood his ob
ject. By following tho line of the
ditch and crossing the canyon on its
flume above Maepherson placer a.
man on foot might reach the dam-
workings in tho upper canyon in ad-
' vance ot a horseman on the trail.
'Again I said It was no concern ot
6 mine; and if ficlter had carried Ms
f rifle as he did not he should hf.vo
gone unfollowed by me. Once more
my hand was on the gate-latch and
once more the warning wind brought
the click of horseshoes on the hard
aurfaco of the road. Looking east-
ward I oould make out the figure of
a horseman rising and falling in a
rapid gallop up the gentle ascent
from the schoolhouse. Some vague
premonition drove me to the shadow
of my tree again and I sow the
horseman as ho cantered past; taw
his face and caught a glimpse of Ut
short repeating rifle of the cow-boya
unslung and lying1 across the saddle.
Jt was Macpberson; and Kan's long
absence was explained as clearly at
need be It was to the yrtung stock-
man that she had carried the proof
of Wykanip's villainy though to wlutt
end no man might guess. But the re-
sult wa before m. Murphersou had
forgotten his promise to Winifred:
forgotten that vengeance belongs to

again the engineer had
creep back over the cob-house tim-

the blnek shadows on tho down-

and saw that Maenhcrson bmi cJ

mo anoe the din and turmoil of the
waters. Then the thread of lire dlr-
appcured and a rumbling crash shii1c
the mountain like the shock of an
earthquake. I heard the grinding
crunch of shattered timbero. i
when I looked again the coffer-dam
had become a mere log-jam in the
seething whirl-pool nnd the released
torrent was breast-high on the trail
where Maepherfion had halted. But
for the sight of him sending his
horse zigzag up the steep acclivity
opposite I should have fainted and
fallen. As it was niy brain reeled
nnd a horrible namea seized me. For
nt that moment Mncpherson flung
himself from the back of tho scram-
bllnfr bronco and ran out on the
wre(.k of the timbering to look
dqwii Into the surging maelstrom
rbnring through the gap. I looked
