TWICE-A-MONTH MAGAZINE SECTION The Fire-Warden {Continued from page 3.) He strove to look remorseful, but he only grinned. "I did not suppose you cared," she said, severely, but made no motion to rise. Presently he mentioned the mare again, asking if she really desired to sell her; and she said that she did. "Then I'll wire to-night," he re- joined. "There should be a check for you day after to-morrow." "But suppose the man did not wish to buy her?" "No chance of that. If you say so, the mare is sold from this moment. "I do say so, she answered, in a - low voice,- " and thank you, Mr. Burle- . son. You do not realize how aston- ished I am—how fortunate—how deep- ly happy—" I can only realize it by compari- son," he said. What, exactly, did he mean by that? She looked around at him; he was ab- sorbed in scooping a hole in the pin- needles with his riding-crop. She made up her mind that his speech did not always express his thoughts; that it was very pleasant to listen to, but rather ...

10 TWICE-A-MONTH MAGAZINE SECTION "Find swallowing hard?" he asked. "Swallerin' ain't easy. I ketched cold." "Let's see," observed Burleson, stroll- ing up to him and deliberately opening the old man's jaws, not only to San- try's astonishment, but to the stupe- faction of the community around the unlighted stove. "Bring a lamp over here," said the young man. Somebody brought it. "TonsiUtis," said Buffeson, briefly, "I'll send you something to-night?" "Be you a doctor?" demanded San- try, hoarsely. "Was one. I'll fix you up. Go home; and don't kiss your little girl. I'll drop in after breakfast." ~ Two things were respected in Fox Cross-roads—death and a doctor— neither of which the citizens under- stood. But old man Santry, struggling ob- . stinately with his awe of things medical, sombrero rasped out, "I ain't goin' to pay no breeches doctor's bills fur a cold!" "Nobody pavs me my more," said Burleson, laughing. "I only doctor people to keep my hand in. Go home, Santry; you're sic...

TWICE-A-MONTH MAGAZINE SECTION 11 rp i V* —oh, entirely without art in a booing which alternately exasperated and thrill- ed her. And now his awkwardness had shattered the magic of the dream and left her staring at reality—without warning, without the courtesy of a ■\J~%arde a vousl" And his answer? He was waiting for his answer. But men are not gods to demand!—not highwaymen to bar the way with a "Stand and deliver!" And an answer is a precious thing—a gem of untold value. It was hers to give, hers to withhold, hers to defend. "You will call on us to say good-bye this evening?" she asked, steadying * her voice'. A deep color stung his face; he bowed, standing stiff and silent until she had passed through the open door of the veranda. Then, half blind with his misery, he mounted, wheeled, and galloped away, The Witch clattering stolidly at his stirrup. Already the primrose light lay over hill and valley; already the delicate purple net of night had snared for- est and marsh; and the...

By Robert W. Chambers K'J m bankrupt can always pay one debt, but neither God nor man can credit him with J4$u payment." I. |HEN Dingman, the fat game- warden, came panting over the mountain from Spencers to confer with young Byram, road-master 'at Foxville, he found that youthful official reshingl- ing his barn. The two men observed each other warily for a moment; Byram jingled the shingle-nails in his apron-pocket; Dingman, the game-warden, took a brief but intelligent survey of the E remises, which included an unpainted ouse, a hen-yard, and the newly ried barn. "Hello, Byram," he said, at length. "Is that you?" replied Byram, coldly. He was a law-abiding young man; he had not shot a bird out of season for three years. After a pause the game-warden said, "Ain't you k-comin' down off'n that ridge-pole?" "I'm a-comin' down when I quit shinglin'," replied the road-master, cautiously. Dingman waited; Byram fitted a shingle, fished out a nail from his apron-pocket, and drove it with u...

Some o' the boys was fixin' to run McCloud outer town, but I guess most of us ain't hankerin' to lead the demonstration." " 'Fraid?" _ " Ya-as," drawled Byram. The game-warden laboriously pro- duced a six-shooter from his side pocket. A red bandanna handkerchief protected the shiny barrel; he unwrap- ped this, regarded the weapon doubt- fully, and rubbed his fat thumb over the butt. "Huh!" ejaculated ' Byram, con- temptuously, "he's gcrt a repeatin'- rifle; he can cut a pa'tridge's head off from here to that butternut 'cross the creek!" "I'm goin' to git into his ice-houae all the same," said the warden, with- out much enthusiasm. "Ah' I'm bound to git my road- tax," said Byram, "but jest how I'm to opera...
