CHAPTER II Continued.
The girl passed on without replying,
lind the old man Joined Polly In the
summer house. He sat down on the
bench near her, fanning himself with
his straw hat, and It was some time he
fore he spoke.
"Hotter'n It was last night," he said.
"Hotter than It was night before last,
I think," the woman replied.
"I gad, I guess you're right. You al
ways raise me one; must have played
pokor In 'your time."
'"But If I were to play poker I might
not always raise; I might sometimes
"Gad, I believe you have played; but
that ain't what I want to talk about.
See this?" He touched his shirt collar
and It was fastened with a horseshoe
nail. "Been a thruatenln' to git It for
a long time and got It Jest now in honor
of you, don't you see? But It ain't
nothin' to laugh at. Will you let me
tell you sonii'thln'?"
"Yes, I am going to sit here a few
"Don't exactly like the way you put
It, but I reckon It's all right." He was
silent, fumbling with the nail at his
collar; he sighed deeply, threw his hat
on the ground, thrust his hands Into
his pockets and leaned back against the
vine-woven lattice work. And In the
twllght she could see that his face was
hard-set and his countenance eager.
"What were you going to tell me?"
"Somethin powerful Important to
both of us, but you'll have to let me
git nt It In my own round-about way.
By this time the whole town is discuss-
i III V lA
"I Want to Marry You,
In' the fact that three men, strange
men at that, come here and called you
Polly. And mebbe In the mornln'. they
will tell you that j'ou better git out.
"I'll tell them to go to a place not on
the school maps, but well located In
"I gad, that's the way to talk to avoid
Btrength, but It won't do to tell 'em no
such a thing. There is a way by which
the whole affair may be made smooth."
"It Is smooth enough now," she re
plied. "I'll be dinged If It Is; It's as rough
lis a toad's back; but we can smooth
It. Now here." he leaned toward her.
"I say now here, you marry me and
the whole affair will be settled, for they
Won't dare to talk about the wife of the
mayor of the town. Hah, what do you
say? You see that I've got about the
best place around here, and I was down
the creek yesterday evenin' and that
corn Is goln' to turn out monstrous,
hah? You can go right down to the
Store and trade out ten dollars' worth
ns a snort, hah? Then Nell can help
you right along In the printing olllce
nnd It shan't cost you a cent. As I told
you once before, you ain't so powerful
good lookln'. Your face ain't got that
aaft look that It ought to have, but we
expect everything of a woman from the
city, you know. Oh, I know I'm glttln'
old, but I bet a dollar that I can Jump
ever that bean pole right yander."
"I'll take the bet," She replied.
"llah, what's that? You don't want
lo Bee me Jumpln" round In the garden
path at night like a toad, do you?
Wouldn't like to 'have It said ith&t you
married a man simply because he could
Jump over a pole, would you? Look,
don't you see I have got this here horse
nhoe nail jest to please you? Look how
J am putting myself out."
"But you haven't told mo that you
love me," she said, and In the gather
ing darkness he could see her looking
"Haven't I? Well, I do. Love you
well enough to let you go to the store
end trade out ten dollars' worth at a
enort, and If that ain't love, hanged If
I know what Is. Yes, I even love you
more than that I'll let you trade out
fifteen. Now whait do you say?"
"Mr. Almes," she said, and her voice
iwas low and sympathetic, "your earn
est pleading warms my heart toward
you, and it therefore grieves me to tell
you that I nm engaged."
"The horn spoon you say! But who
to? But not to one of them men, I
"No; not to one particularly, but to
"The off ox you say! But you oan't
fnarry all three of 'em."
"No, I can't; but I can wait and see
Hvhlch one I really want."
"Miss," said itihe old man, catching
Up his hat and arising, "you come
mighty near bolng the blameat creeter
I ever saw." '
He stood there fumbling wltih his
collar; he took out the nail, held it a
moment In hla h'ond, and tihen, throw
ing It away, said: "Thart I have flung
my love and your honor out Into
bushes. Good night."
There was a great deal of talk In the
Village, .and at. one time It appeared
ithat the mite society, for Whose benefit
Polly had so ardently begged a nlckil
there and there, would Issue an edict
against her; but the itide was finally
turned by the president of the associa
tion, a widow with a business eye. Bhe
flaw that to cut off the newspaper' was
to throw away a valuable adjunct, and
bo It was agreed that Polly mlgnt re
main In the society and rest simply
Under . a mild degree pf suspicion. The
question was discussed in the church
but the preouher,, strong In his belle
lat churdh notices and abntraots of
sermons should be printed, called a de
termlned haW, .... .
LI III if il '
Si OPIE REftD
How much longer the affair might
have been discussed, and Into what re
mote and executive corners of affright
ed virtue it might have been dragged,
It would be dltllcult to say; but the
arising of a new 'topic put it all aside.
And this new topic was one of real ex
cKemenlt. Not far away In the hills
lived a gang of desperate men, itihe
Abe Peters boys, they were cailled. It
was known, or at least It was strongly
suspected, Bitot they ihad robbed railway
trains. Determined efforts on the
part of the law had failed to bring them
to Justice. It was believed that they
had formed an alliance with the Dal
ton gang,' but this their leader denied,
and offered, on condition of a pardon
for himself and friends, to help the offi
cers bring the Daltons Into court or to
kill them. This offer was accepted.
The Daltons were killed or so badly
crippled that nothing further was to
be feared from thorn. Well, after this
the Peters gang fought off the tempta
tion to rob trains, but could not forego
the uleasuiMLble recitation of riding
I into a village now and Men and shoot
ing out the lights. So, Just about the
time the talk concerning Polly and the
three men was sinking to a mere whis
per of dying scandal, the Peters broth
ers rode into Broomlleld, shot the town
cow, wounded the prowHng hog nnd
shattered a lamp In the meeting house.
This was the greatest outrage that had
ever been put upon ithat part of the
country, and old man Almes, with ihls
shirt unbuttoned, puffed up and down
the street and swore that if e.nyone
would go with him he would ride aflter
the scoundrels. But everybody was
Uon't You Understand?
busy. The sheriff was belhlnd with Tils
tax list, the constable wasn't feeling
well; and while the citizens were dis
cussing their Inability to avenge them
selves, Polly came up and said that aha
would go with Mr. Almes.
"I gad," said the old fellow, looking
upon her with admiration, "you'll
drive me to the shop to get another
horseshoe .nail, but I think too much
of you to see you put yourself In such
danger. Let's wait awhile."
In the next number of the pnipeT
Polly scored the rascals, and this pro
duced a scare. The people Bald that
the Peters brothers would surely come
back and riddle the town. And within
a week afterfard they did come back,
shouting, galloping through the streets.
In fright the people sought their
homes. The marauders dashed about,
firing. They galloped up to the
printing office and fired at the win
dows. And then from the Inside came
a puff of smoke and one of the Peters
fell out of his saddle. Then there
arose a furious melee, firing right and
left, but the steady hand within the
olllce fired again and out of a saddle
dropped another man. Suddenly there
was a new excitement among the
marauders, and from behind a goods
box came the double roar of a shotgun.
The Pfters brothers, those not on the
ground, ducked their heads and dashed
away, and when Polly stepped out,
Nell, with a gun In her hand, came
from behind the box. "I was watch
lng," she said, "and I thought you
Three men had been dangerously
wounded, and the law, now brave
enough, took charge of them. Polly
and Nell were heroines. The president
of the mite society called a special
meeting In honor, and old man Almes
buttoned almoBt tight enough to choke
him. Now It was declared that Polly
should never leave the village; and It
was also vowed that If she wanted to
be acquainted with three men from
away off somewhere It was her right,
and that It was nobody's business If
Bhe had chosen to engage herself to
One afternoon Almes called at the
office and told Nell to go home. "Go
right on now and wait there till
come,'.' he Bald, thinking to whisper to
her, but speaking loudly enough to be
heard out In the street. "Ye, right now
and when I do come I may have
mighty lnterestln' piece of news for
Nell went out and Polly knew what
was coming. The old' man sat down.
"Little cooler than It was yesterday,"
"Yes," she replied. "Cooler than It
was day before yesterday." .
"Qad, I reckon you are right. Say,
do you rloollect that some time ago I
told you about my field of corn down
the creek? Well, you ought to see It
now. Seventy-five or a hundred bush
els to the acre. ' And you know that I
told you .that you might even spend
$15. Of course you rlcollect It, for how
could a woman and as brave a woman
as you ever forget It. Well, I have been
thlnkln' the matter over since then and
I have come to the conclusion that you
may spnd $20 at a Bnort. Now what
do you think of it?"
"But you don't owe me anything,"
"No, but I want to give It to you,
don't you see give It to you to spend at
a snort, hah? I want to marry you,
don't you understand?"
"Mr. Alimes, you are too brave a man
to throw yourself away."
