i came old Nelson, followed by Abe, San
i dy, I'.aptiste, Shaw and others. As
j they reached the barricade it crashed
: down ami, carrying me with it, pinned
! me fast.
Looking; out between the barrels, I
saw what froze my heart with horror.

111 a grip so deadly that he could Hot

yelling like a demon. In vain I called
to h!in. My lingers could just reach
his foot, and he heeded not at all my
touch, slowly Idaho was dragging his
almost unconscious victim toward the
knife. His lingers were touching the
blade point when, under a .sudden in
spiration, I pulled out my penknife,
opened it with my teeth and drove the
blade into Iiaptisto's foot. With a
bloodcurdling yell he sprang down and
began dancing round in his rage, peer
ing among the barrels.
"Look: Look!" I was calling In ago
ny and pointing. "For heaven's sake,
The fingers bad closed upon the knife,
the knife was already high In the air,
when, with a shriek, Hapliste cleared
the room nt ti bound, and before the
knife could fall the little rrenchiuan'a
boot bad caught the uplifted wrist and
sent the knife Hying to the wall.
Then there was a great rushing
sound ns of wind through the forest,
and the lights went out. When I
awoke, I found myself lying with my
head on Graeme's knees and I'.aptiste
sprinkling snow on my face. As I
looked up (Jraeme leaned over, and,
smiling down Into my eyes, he said:
"Good hoy! It wus a great light, and
we rut It up well." And then ho whis
pered, "I owe you my life, my boy."
His Trords thrilled my heart through
and through, for I loved him as only
men can love men, but I only answer
ed: "I could not keep them back."
"It was well done," he said, nnd I
I confess I wna thankful to be so
well out of It, for Graeme got off with
a bone in his wrist broken nnd I with
a couple of ribs cracked, but had It not
been for the open bairel of whisky

offering too good n chance to be lost,
and for the timely arrival of Nelson,

Wo found Craig sound asleep upon
fcia coach. His consternation' oa wak
ing to see as torn, brained and bloody .
Was laughable, but he hastened to find
ns warm water and bandages, and W
oon felt comfortable.
Baptlste was radiant with pride and
delight over the fight and horered
aliout Graeme and me, Kttrtng Tent to
his feelings In admiring French and
Kngllsh expletive. But Abe was dis
gusted because of the failure at Sla

Slavln's Trench Canadian wife In
charge, with her baby on her lap, and j
lie came buck to Shaw and said, "Come
iiway; we can't touch this." and Wiaw,
after looking in, agreed that nothing
could be done. A baby held the fort.
As Craig listened to the account of
the tlgnt he tried hard not to approve,
but lie could not keep the gleam out of
his eyes, and as I pictured Craetue
dashing bark the crowd thronging the
barricade till he was brought diwn by

his hand on (Iriu-nu-'s knee, and as I
went on to describe my agony while
Malm's lingers were gradually Hearing
the knife his face grew pale and his
eyes grew wide with horror.

We did not talk much. Graeme and

all stood uji and shook bands will) him
in silence, and every man knew a cov

his uieeting with Nixon. He sent us all
away before that.
Nothing was heard of the destruction
of the hotel stock ill trade. Unpleasant
(jucstions would certainly bo asked,
and the proprietor decided to let bad
alone. On the point of respectability
the success of the ball was not con
spicuous, but the antileague men were
content if not jubilant.
Billy Hreeti was found by Ceordlo
late in the at'leruooii in his own old
and deserted shack, breathing heavily,
covered uji in his lilthy, nioldeiing bed
clothes, with a half empty bottle of
whisky at his side, (ieordle's grief and
rage were beyond even his Scotch con
trol. He spoke few words, but these
were of such concentrated vehemence
that no one felt the need of Abe's as
sistance In vocabulary.
Hour Billy! Wo carried him to Mrs.
Mavor's home, put him In a warm
bath, rolled him In blankets and gave
him little sips of hot water, then of
hot milk ai.'l coffee, ns 1 had seen a
J clever doctor In tho hospital treat a
similar case of nerve and heart de
pression. 4 tut the already weakened
system could not recover from the aw
ful shock of the exposure following the
debauch, and on Sunday afternoon we
saw that his heart wns falling fast.
All day the miners bad been dropping
' in to inquire after him, fer Billy had
been a great favorite In other days,
nnd the attention of the town hnd been
admiringly centered upon .his fight of
! these last weeks. It was'with no ordl
. nary sorrow that the news of his con
jdition was received. As Mrs, Mavor
snug to him his large, coarse hands
' moved In time to the music, but he did
not open his ryes till ho heard Mr,
Crulg's voice In the next roaui. Then
he spoke his name, and Mr. Craig waa
kneellnc beside him In a moment. The
words cam slowly:
"01 tried to fight hit bout bnt-Ot

ter Ol would." I
"Ashamed ef you, Billy T said Craig
la a voice that broke. "Not he."
i "And ye hall 'elped me sor he went
on. "Ol wish Ol'd 'a done better Ol
do." And bis eyes sought Geordte and
then rested on Mrs. Mavor, who smiled
back at hint with a world of love In
her eyes. "You hain't liashamed o' me
yore heyes salgb eo," he said, look
ing at ber.
"No, Billy,' she said, and I wonder
ed at her steady voice, "not a bit.
Why, Hilly, I am proud of you."
He gazed up at her with wonder and
ineffable .love in his little eyes, then
lifted his hand slightly toward her.
She knelt quickly and took it in both
of hers, stroking it and kissing It.
"Ol liaught t'a done better. Oi'm

"Don't he 'ard on 'cm. tieordle. They

riedly: "Xa, na, lad! I ll Juist leave them till

Tin ii Mrs. Mavor s nig softly, smooth
ing his hand, "Just us I Am," and Hilly
dozed quietly for half an hour.
When he awoke again, his eyes turn
ed to Mr. Craig, unJ they were trou
bled and anxious.
"01 tried 'ard. (ti wanted to win,"
he struggled to say.
Hy this time Cra:g was master of
himself, and he answered in a clear,
"Listen. Hilly. Yntl made a great

But Mrs. Mavcr held the dead hand
tight and sobbed oiu passionately:
"oh, Billy, Billy, you helped me once

And (Jeordie, groaning, "Aye, laddie,

i f the early ( veiling.
Next day lai one went to work, for to
nil it seemed u sacred day. They car
ried him into tin- little church, and
there Mr. Craig .-; !.e of his long, hard
light and of bis i'.ual victory, for he
died without a l'c.ir and villi love to
the men who, not knowin .:. had been

the story of the sheep and told how
gently he had taken Billy home;
though no word was spoken. It
there the league was made again.
They laid him under the pines beside
Lewis Mavor, nnd the miners threw
sprigs of evergreen into the open

reason that corn being scattered more
by drilling, lias a better opportunity
to successfully develop. Hows being,
say three and two-thirds feet each
way, it is customary in hill corn to se
cure os nearly as possible an averaes
of two and one-half stalks tothehiil,
or two and one-half stalks every three

were distributed along the row as they
are when drilled, they would stand

reasonable that since drilling makes n

Small doors which arc kept tightly

grain can be unloaded right from the

I'roleln for Diilry Cow.
For many years the (iernian stand
ard established by Dr. WollT was ac
cepted us final. A 1,000 pound cow
was supposed to -reipiire 2.5 pounds
of digestible protein. Kecent inves
tigations have partially discredited
this theory. The best dairymen now
prefer to feed protein according to
the capacity of the individual cow.
It is understood that some small
cows will make good use of n ration
that contains the full amount of
protein while other cows that weigh
considerably more, will waste part of
It, because of their inability to con
vert it into milk. Agricultural Ep
itomist. What the- Dairy tow elx.
The relation of the comfort of the
cow to the cash received by her own
er for her products, is one that every
dairyman should study with much in
terest. These condition! enough
good food and pur e water, shelter from
the heat of sun. -ier and storms of
winter, and' kind treatment, are just
the conditions man demands tor his
own comfort, and just what would be
due every animal from every owner,
for humanity's sake, even were there
no business relatione between them.
