CHAPTER XV. . \
HILE David Bond and Dallas
were taking ShadracRv^rom
the puhg a boot crunched the
suow behind them. They
turned, and there was Lounsbury,
fairly bursting to tell his good news.
When he had told it he was anxious
to get away again, for by a quick re-
treat the two girls might he saved tire
knowledge of the Clark episode, jind
he a very probable second insult. 'But
the evangelist, having no wish to tat-
tle about Lancaster, yet hoping that
the elder girl would learn what her
father had done and administer a de-
served rebuke, urged him in.
The stprekeeper did not consent to
enter the shack, however, until Dallas
her invitation, and then he went
reluctantly. He was accustomed to
eourteSy there on the frontier. The
plfifna bred men that he knew instinc-
tively took him at his real valuation
Mid treated him accordingly. The men
etf a more conventional strata (the pro-
1 men of Bismarck and those
officered at the posts up and down
rivet) freely bestowed their friend-
upon him. The lawless element
:ed him, too, and showed thai\
respect by Jetting him severely alone \
He shrank from placing himself where
a man like Lancaster — crippled, old
and therefore beyond disciplining —
could have the chance to repeat .an
affCont. And he shrank at the thought
of a clash—it meant pain for two help-
less women. Nevertheless he yielded..
The streamers were gone from the
4ky by then. They had faded as quick-
ly as they had come. Once more, ua-
4\er a doma-«f cobalt, the river flowed
black between its fringe of Wees' and
the prainf stretched white and still.
A bright fire and a swinging coffee
pail welcomed the three as the door
jnrtrng wide, and the section boss, who
was urging Marylyn to ‘‘rustle some
grub,” turned with a testy word. But
he*fell silent when he saw Lounsbury
and edged into the dusky shelter* of

“Did y’ size him up fer

Waal, Ah never did.”
Lounsbury’s face dyed to
scarlet. “No?” he said. “And why?”
Again the section boss gave a shrill,
mocking laugh. “Too fat an’ too
mouth}7,” he answered.
For an instant Lounsbury wavered.
In that instant the deep scarlet faded,
his eyes opened, his nostrils spread.
“Pa! Pa!” It was Marylyn, half
Lounsbury’s, cool voice cleared the
air. “Pm a Bismarck man,”- he said
to the evangelist. “I’ye got a store
there. My name is Jolm( Lounsbury.”
He held out his hand to Dallas.
She advanced, again and took it. “Oh,
thank you, thank you,” she breathed.'
“ ‘Bismarck man,’ ” It was Lancas-
ter once more. “Waal, W’y the devil
don’ y’ stay thar?”
Lounsbury took no notice of him.
“I’ll be hooting’ it,” he said to Dallas.
“But if I can |Lo anything, you under-
stand,” and wept out.
David Bond’s keen eyes studied the
*elder girl. He expected an outburst
of anger# and blame. He was sur-
prised when, without, speaking, she
brought the benches to the fire and set
about clearing the table. Lancaster
seated himself and sucked moodily at
his pipe. Marylyn flitted behind him
to disappear through the swinging
blankets. The evangelist walked up
It was not long before the silence
told on the section boss and forced him
to talk. _“Ef you-all got anythin’ t’
say,” he snarled presently, “y’ might
as well spit it out.”
No one answered.
“Ah got jes’ this t’ say,” he contin-
ued: “Ah ain’t goin’ t’ hev no lubber
o’ a storekeeper slaverin’ aroun’ my
* Again no one answered, but David
Bond as he watched Dallas question-
ingly determined to be silent no longer.
He paused in his walk. “My friend,”
he said solemnly, “you talk like a mad-
man. For shame!”
Dallas stood stock still, her eyes
warning him. But it was too late.
Her father snickered, drew on his
pipe pnee or twice and then grinned up
at the evangelist. “It’s gittin’ light
outdoors,” he said significantly.. “Ab
reckon y’ coultF cross th’ river.”
And so David Bond and the white
borsfe went the way of Louhsbury.
Nearly an hour passed before the
sectipn boss addressed Dallas. “Waal,
waal,- waal 7”
She was wrapping-up to do the morn-
ing chores. “Just as well, I guess,
dad,” she said wearily. “The" meal
and bacon’s pretty low. I’ve beeD
cooking out of the seed sacks lately.”
“Th’ meal art’ bacon’s got t’ las’,” he
answered., “Use th’ seed ef y’ want t’,
an’ don’ give thet Injun so much. We
shan’t ast tick o’ no lallygaggln’, flo-a
. :ed her
Dallas sighed,>found Marylyn ‘to kiss
her and gratefully breasted the chill air
beyond the door.
His dismissal from the shack brought
no hardship upon David Bond. . He
found an old acquaintance in Colonel
Cummings, who Joyfully greeted him
as interpreter in the absence of Mat-
thews, He found familiar faces among
the hostages, ’ wlfose sullen reserve in
his presence he laid to their imprison-
ment. At barracks the enlisted men
chaffed him mischievously, christened
him “Methuselah” and installed him
as “official doom sealer” of the- post.
But when he passed them by to give
every hour of his days and nights to
young Jamieson—young Jamieson, bat
tling with all his might against col *
lapse-rthe men ceased chaffing and lis-
tened to him with respect. A crank on
religion was one thing, a man with one
eye on the Bible and his sleeves rolled
up, for hard duty* was another. Tin-;
••troopers cared little, for sermonizing;
but they honored service. Then, it
was Jamieson for whom the evangelist
was caring. And Jamieson held the
very heartstrings of the garrison.
As for Lounsbury, Brannon* enter
tained him no less gladly. His was the
rare good humor that enlivens’Yveiu
occasion. He practiced at target shoot-
ing With the enlisted men; he pjjayed
billiards with the officers; he -dined,
made up sleigh rides, lent himself to
theatricals, furnished u fourth at cards
and at the frequent dances led put

To David Bond it seemed as the
storekeeper were indifferent to hfs own
dismissal from the shack. But one
morning the evangelist* accidentally
came upon the-younger man. lie wav

with some misgivings as the United
States land agent at Bismarck. The
section boss was soon reassured, how-
ever. The agent said that, having busi-
ness near Brannon and rememberim
that Lancaster wished to file an entry
on the bend when th'e first claimant’s
six months were up, lie had come by.
In the ca-se of a man Vho was hurt, he
said, the law allowed such a course.
The section boss, .thus, saved the ardu-
ous trip, signed the necessary papers
with a jubilant mark. d
Then came old Michael for a time or
two. It seemed at first as if he Were
to be a favorite. He could adapt him-*
self with all the art of his race. And
before Lancaster he was intensely
southern in hi^ views, whipping the
north in many h broguey strife]. Until
’—it befell’through a slip-of the tongue
—a slip that s“ent him packing off, for
he boasted now* in ’62 his freckled
hands had helped in piloting the Fed-
erals to Island Nd. 10!
It-was an outcome that gave Dallas
little concern. Marylyn was her wor-
ry. The younger girl was listless, pale
and mooefy. Now and then Dallas be-
lieved she saw a look of actual suffer-
ing in h^r eyes. Once, awakening in
the night, she heard her sob.
Marylyn was unhappy, and the
thought madg l^he elder girl desperate.
This led her to apian: Lounsbury must
be asked to forgive their father and
come again—must be told of Marylyn’s
Soon afterward a secon*d worry pre-
sented itself, one fully as serious. The
provisions were dwindling, the seed
sacks shrinking* fast, and, estranged
from Lounsbury, fhey had nowhere to
ask credit but’at the forte *-
When Dallas spoke’of it to her fa-
ther, he chuckled. “Waal, we got Si-
mon, ain’t we?” he said.
That same night Marylyn put' down
her fork and stared across the table at
her sister. “Why; Dallas, you. don’t
Dallas laughedji “I don’t work, hon-
ey,” she answered.
The question of fuel entered next
and became a grave one. So far the
weather had been fairly-mild for the
place and the season. Now It took a
more rigorous turn. The bitter cold
was intensified by a stiff wind. Snow
began to fall, and the wind, growing,
drove the flakes -level, so that they cut
the face like filings of steel. Charley’s
trips became uncertain, then, impossi-
ble. The work of getting out hay for
the stock was a desperate tax. It was
so difficult that Dallas dared not spa#e
a straw for the fireplace, and Ben and
Betty’s manger had to be drawn upon
for wood. When this S9urce of supply
failed, the benches were sacrificed one
by one, the cupboard was torn down,
and the bunk and part of the table
were split into kindling.
The family slept shoulde'r to shoul-
der before the hearth, with the brave
colored blankets of the partition for
extra covering. Lancaster and the
younger girl stayed in bed all of the
twenty-four hours. Dallas got up only
long enough to tend the animals and
prepare food. JBut a day came when
she could not (make her waj to the
lean-to and when the warped door
could not be opened in the teeth of the
raging Storm. Toward noon she
cooked some food, * ho waver. The seed
slacks were empty. There was no rice
and no flour. While the blizzard
howled without and Simon and the
mules called pitifully for their fodder
and drink, she broke up what was left
of the table. 'Over its blaze the -last
smitch of bacon went to savor the
last pint of beans. ’
After the meal Dallas read ’aloud
Lying down, sins held her book in one
hand until her fingers were blue with,
cold, then changed to the other. Fa-
ther and, sister .drowsed, and she put
the story aside to study over the pre-
dicament, in which she felt herself at
fault. (Counting on blizzards, but know-
ing nothing of their duration, she had
determined to say little *bout their
needs until thqse needs pressed, when,
she knew, her father wouM see their
extremity. The extremity bad come
Yet, willing or unwilling, Lancaster
was cut off from seeking help.
That day closed in fearful cold. The
wind was becoming a furious ,gale
Sturdily the log house withstood it
Only#he roof seemed threatened. With
each great blast*it lifted a little, as 1!
on the point of whirling away, but

beempiling^ up gradually to the north
and west of the .shack, sealing the win
dows and the door, had risen to the
grass}' eaves and. overflowed them and
so weighted the thatch.
Next morning long before Marylyn
and her father wakened Dallas roused
The room was in dusk,.and its air w.a-
so cold that it seemed fairly to siru^-
the skin. -She could not read. Pre-
ently Marylyn turned The elder gi.
hastened to soothe her. Then then
father yawned Dallas feigneil slbcp
But the evil moment could not i-<-
put off. Lam-aster propped himself <•>:
an elbow and called to her. He, wa

Very quietly Dallas told bhib th;
there was no food ,
He grunted, arose and lighted v 1

“Wlaat ’re \ou-g. ing to do?" she a

After a long wait she spoke. “You

“Yas, Ah c’n,” he answered. “Ah c’n

was between the fireplace and a cor-
ner, feeling over the logs with his
She ran to him. “Oh, how can you
think of it?” she demanded huskily.
“Simon’s so friendly and—came to,, us
for a home. How can you kill him!
Maybe you could eat him, but I
couldn’t. It’d just choke me!”
“Oh, ain’t we sof.’!” sneered her fa-
ther. He was fumbling about near the
bunk, as if hunting something. “Mebbe
y’ ’d like Ah should kill a mule! Ha.
hal No mule meat fer me. Ah’ll give
thet bull a tunk ’tween th’ eyes, ah’
we’Jl hev steak.” |
She stood in the dim light, one arm
crooked up to cover her face. Present-
ly Marylyn moaned. Then Dallas low-
ered her arm and looked down at her
sister. “One of the? mules -would be
easier, ” she said bitterly. But, remem-
bering the brown eyes of the team and
the long, gray whiskered noses, she
covered her face again.
“Ah don’ keer w’at y’ say,” declared-
her father. “We’ll hev steak.” He se-
lected a log and began to hack at it.
Shuddering, she sank to her knees,
one hand reached out’ to touch Mary-
lyn. “Maybe Charley ’ll come, honey,”
she4 whispered hopefully. “Maybe,
And now it seemed as if she heard
something outside. She crept to the
door. Around the latch was a little
space. She put her ear to it, and the
icy air blew against Ijer cheek. There
it was again! The shriek of the gal£.
She went back to the bed.
Hack, hack, hack If Then muttered
curses. And again the sound of chop-
When she could bear it no longer she
got up and stumbled over to her fa-
ther. “Dad,” she said, “if I break up
the mantel and fix something will you
stop?” ' '
He sat back on his feet, puffing cross
ly. “Light a fire,” he said. * “Use these
chips. Ah’ll res’.” He threw down the
hatchet and crawled unde* .the blan-
kets. He was glad of ,the interruption,
for the duty ahead was assuming an

snow. Now she gathered up the chips,
lit them and pried up the wide board
of the mantel. This^she split with the
“What are you going to make?”
asked Marylyn from* the bed.
“Pepper tea, honey. It’ll warm you
up.” • '
“Oh, I’m so glad. Ma made some
Pepper tea it was. When the snow
had melted and the water was boiling
hot Dallas added pepper and salt.
Then Bhe spread a cloth anfi turned
the wheat and corn* sacks out upon it.
She got a handful of flour. With tbis
she thickened the water. Three cups
were sitting upon the ’ flo$r. She took
the coffee , pail over, poured into two
and handed them to her father and
“Don’t spilf a drop,” she cautioned.
“You got some?” queried Marylyn.
Dallas went back to the other cup.
“Well, what do you think I’m doing?”
■he asked and lifted it to her lips.
Soon the three were lying shoulder
to shoulder again, the section boss
drawing a little added comfort from
his pipe. Before long he was asleep;
Marylyn too. TheA Dallas gdi up
cautiously and brewed a cup of pep-
pered water for herself. The hot
firaft relieved ‘the pangs of her hunger
She lay down again.
Hours later she wa£ awakened by
hearing faint squeals directly over
head. Hastily she lit the lantern and
took down the Sharps, then steppe'd
directly under the sounds and poked
1£e rifle’s muzzle Inty the hay of the
roof. Above, storm driven and crowd-
ing one another agapist the stones of
the chimney, were some pigs!
In her eagerness she trembled so
violently that she became, unsteady ou
her feet. It lost her the opportunity of
firing, for as she wa.ited>jfying to get
a blind aim, the squeals sfiddenl^' died
out. The pigs had gone^over toward
the edge of the lean-to.
When next she awoke—awoke from
■ dream of well spread tables—she
could not guess liow much time had
passed or whether it was day or niglit
The shack was pitch dark. ..Of one
tkfcig she could be sure—the storm
had not abated, so there was no hop-:-
iof aid. J
She knew something m.ust be done.
Simon and the team wrung her heart
with their pleas. Beside her Marylyn
was turning with fretful complaints.
The younger gi*1! rolled her ltead from
side to side constantly and moistened
her lips ’ Dallas chopiied up the rifle
rack and made a fire of it, then plied
Marylyn with more of the pepper tea.
The section boss refused to partake
The first .Cup, he said, had burned him
Tobacco was better solace.

dav in April, A. D., 1908, then
and there to answer to the peti-
tion of E. John Arendt, filed in
said court on the 15th day of
January, 1908, against the said
Leona N. Arendt/being number-
ed 3719, and alleging in substance
as follows, to-wit:'
Plaintiff alleges‘ that he and
defendant were married about
March 27, 1898, in San Antonio*
Texlls, aand shortly thereafter
went to St. Louis, Mo., where
they lived until about July, 1898;
that ijt was mutually agreed be-
tween them that plaintiff* should
go toN Europe to complete* his
education, and that defendant
would return to San Antonio,
Texas, to her own people where
she would live until plaintiff re
turned from Europe. Alter com-
pleting his education in Europe,
plaintiff returned to St. Louis,
Mo., about May 1901, and fitted
up a home and wrote for defend-
ant to come and joifi him, send-
ing her money and transportation
for such purpose; that defendant
refused to come to him, but
wrote him that she preferred
living with her own people and
did not care to live with plaintiff
any more as his wife; that about
two ponths filter, plaintiff’ again
wrote defendant, asking her to
come to him, but that she still
refused so to do, against the
wishes and consent ’of plaintiff;
that in September, 1907, plaintiff
was in San Antonio, Texas,, and
made inquiries after his wife,
and learned that she was not go-
ing by plaintiff’s name, but had
adopted her maiden name, and
was leading such a life as would
preclude her discharging the
duties of a wife; that in 1907,
plaintiff \yas again in San Antonio
and inquired for defendant, but
no trace of her could be had at
said time; wherefore, plaintiff
says to further try to live ^vith
defendant is insupportable, and
that she has abanddhed him per-
manentlv and for more than
three years before the filing of
this suit. Premises considered,
