There was such excitement in Four
Corners as had not lieen known in
that small settlement for many a day.
The quail on the Cornish estate were
protected by the game laws from April
to September and by Dawson, the
gamekeeper, at all times, yet one May
morning found Dan O'Connor In the
Cornish preserves with a brace of
quail at his l»elt, whereupon Dawson,
summoning the sheriff from Windsor
Bend, had promptly arrested O'Connor
and jailed him.
Such a thing had never happened be
fore iu the history of Four Corners,
and public feeling ran high. A crowd
had gathered at the one store the place
boasted, and their muttered threats
finally merged Into open detiauce.
"I heerd that Dawson had kinder got
his eye on a couple more o' the bOys,"
hinted old man Pierson.
A ruffianly looking fellow leaning
against the counter looked up with a
"He'd better look out the bays don't
got their eyes on him first," he growled
"A few birds more or less ain't noth
in* to make a fuss ovor nohow," put In
a tall, lank fellow behind the stove.
"He's got to look fer u little shoot-
In'," mumbled old man Pierson,
The hard facet! fellow against the
counter straightened up and moved
slowly toward the door. "He might's
"HIST, MISS MOIT.Y, HIS? !" PAIS 4
*vell look for It; It's comln* to him," he
said menacingly as he slouched heavily
from the room.
The rougher element of Four Corners
were used to depending upon their rifles
to eke out an existence, meager enough
at best, and in the lifetime of old Mr.
Cornish, the former owner of the greut
estate, their' depredations had been
practically unchecked, but now a new
order of things prevailed. Old Mr. Cor
nish was dead, and the villagers re
garded the sou who had succeeded him
witii suspicion and the gamekeeper ho
had appointed with sullen hatred.
Tlie villagers were not alone In their
disapproval of Dawson.
"You are making a mistake In ap
pointing him," the doctor's daughter,
had declared, her brown ejus resting
ou the tall young man beside her.
'"I don't see why," Hobert Cornish
had returned stubbornly. "Something
lias to be done to preserve the game.
These fellows are a lawless set, shoot'
i;i? in season and out and ruining the
preserves. Besides'Vhls voice rung de
terminedly—"lt is my property."
"Yes," she admitted, "and yet they
have so little it doesn't seem quite fair
they should have no rights."
"But I'm willing they should do a
certain amount of hunting," he pro
tested, "only they must observe the
game laws, and also roulizta
that it is my property, not theirs."
"Do they know you will allow them
a certain amount of game?" .
Jtohert Cornish shook his head. "Not
yet. Dawson advised cutting them off
short until they learn to realize the es
tate Is private property. When they
understand shooting Is a privilege, not
a right, they will give less trouble."
Molly shook her head doubtfully.
"I know them better than you do,"
she said. "They are lawless and Ig
norant, l>ut there Is more good tu
thorn than you believe, and Dawson
isn't the man to deal with them. I
wish you would talk to them your
self," she went on.
There was a brief silenee.
"I will—lf you wish," he said impul
sively. "I will <lo it tomorrow."
But on the morrow two unforeseen
things happennd. Kobert Cornish was
failed suddenly away on an urgent
business trop and Dan O'Connor bag
ged the quail.
It was the evening after the excited
discussion at the store that Molly,
prompted by an unusual feeling of
restlessness, crossed the room to the
window and, stepping out on the ve>
randa, wandered down Into the moonlit
garden, ltobert Co.rnish would be back
that night, but of course It was no
yague hope of meeting him that bright
ened her eyes or led her through the
gate into the road, made light as day
by the full moon overhead.
"Hist, Miss Molly, hist!" said a voice
close at her ear.
She started violently aa u small, un
kempt figure crept through the hedge
and stopped short in her path.
•'Don't go on, iniss," said the boy,
with much excitement. "Don't! They
are waitin' fer Dawson below, an'
maybe they might do ye some harm."
"Waiting? For what? To shoot
him?" usked the girl breathlessly.
"Yes, miss. The wagon has gone to
Windsor Bend to meet him, an' when
It comes back —well, they're waitin',
miss, down In the hollow."
"But it isn't Dawson the wagon has
gone to meet," said Molly in a horri
fied whisper. "It Is Mr. Cornish."
"I guess It won't make no difference
to them, miss, whether It's Dawson or
the master himself. They're bent on
The boy darted through the hedge,
leaving the girl, white and horrified, ill
the middle of the road. For a mo
ment she stood as if stunned. Then
her inind leaped riotously to the
chance of escape. "If I can reach the
Windsor road through the cross path,"
she thought desperately, "I may be in

the hedge. Into a Held beside the road,

stones slipped and slid under her feet,
ou again, lightly, swiftly, through a

with a passionate thankfulness in her
heart as she heard tlie distant ring of

The sounds came nearer. A light
road cart swung swiftly toward her.
••Koltert!" slie cried again. Then, as
a t ill youug man in the cart pulled up
h!s horses sharply, she sank, spent and
breathless, beside the Windsor road.
The excitement had largely been a
matter of misunderstanding, and when
young Cornish had explained his plan
of sharing the game, and, furthermore,
had refused to prosecute the ringlead
ers of the disturbance. Four Corners
was with him to a man.
It is hard to say which of his two
next moves—his marriage to Molly or
Lis appointment of Dun O'Connor to
the position of gamekeeper—evoked
the more admiration.

In some of the southern counties of
England queer superstitions are cur
rent about eating blackberries after
day. The country people
say that on Michaelmas eve tho old
gentleman "plants his cloven foot" on
all the blackberries as yet uugathered.
After this date, Sept. 2M, it is unlucky
to pick or eat the fruit. The date upon
which the devil puts his foot down
against blackberry eating varies in dif
ferent districts. In some it is as late
at Oct. 10, by which time one would
naturally suppose there were no black
berries left to stamp out. But the story
of his prohibition is told in many
places. Great misfortune, sickness or
death will surely follow disobedience to
his orders. But why his Satanic maj
esty should concern himself so partic
ularly about blackberries when so
many greater matters might be said to
claim his attention, none of the stories
states. It may be that he considers
black bert lea too healthy and wishes to
limit the consumption.
