Despite her unbecoming apparel. Koss Davis acknowledged to himself that he had never seen a lovelier being than this Little Izelia of the Lone inn.

But he was too thoroughly fatigued to notice this Only carelessly As he seated himself on the Side of the bed and looked yawning by around the of m. Quot they must be afraid Light and air will get in Here Quot he said seeing no windows in the room.

Quot Well i m a prisoner in the Lione inn if that i Eji Ulsie has a mind to lock the chamber words of jest but of How much significance he did not dream. A gentle vap Jiing on the logs outside Atti acted his attention. What did it mean it ceased and was then repeated at the same 2 lace. Ross approached the sign of. A thin piece of Clay had fallen oif Between the logs leaving a narrow crack through which Ross could see two by ight dark Eves shining. Quot blow out the the mysterious voice came from Between tile logs. The Young Hunter obeyed without knowing wily.

Quot Lod Grant we May elude them Quot cried Ross As on and on the horses seemed to Fly. Quot hark they Are coming this Way Quot Quot yes they have discovered our Trail Quot said Izelia with a calmness remarkable in one so Young.

It was Clear that they were fast gaining on Ross and his fair reseller. The Young Man Grasi de one of his revolvers at the same time or Gina his horse Forward. He intended to sell his life As dearly As >o.ssible. Uliey swept Down the wild Ravine and entered the dark somber Forest their close behind bitter in now and then a loud curse or angry Call Quot Indian Tobe is leading the gang Quot cried the girl. Quot it is hard to outwit him Quot but on they Rode through the Forest the girl acting As guide and Ross following Avith his revolver held in readiness. The Leader of the gang was in Advance of the others and to Lough he could not see the fugitives before him through the Plu tonian darkness of the Woods he could hear the crackling of the underbrush under their horses i it get. With a Demoniac yell to urged is h n be Onward at tie same time Sendai a shot s ending in the direction of the Liu sned. The re Ort rang wildly through the Forest. The Ball buried itself in a huge tree directly behind Ross serving As a Means to frighten the horses Forward at swifter Speed. Sudd Erdy Ross horse stumbled and fell heavily to the ground. He gave a stirring just in time to save himself from being crushed by the luckless animal. Izelia halted her Pony taking in the Young Man s situation at once. In a second she was by his Side saying Quot Here to int my horse and ride for your Quot never i i shall not leave you to the mercies of that gang Quot cried loss. Indian Tobe was almost upon them. But his i a sauce was suddenly and mysteriously Checkett by a Rifle shot m hich Cleft the darkness near them. Indian Tobe fell from his horse to the ground with an agonizing groan. At the same moment the Woods rang with strange hallows. The Pursuit was stopped and the sound of their horses hoofs tearing away through the Forest could be easily heard a Torch was coming toward Ross and his rescuer. The Man who held the Torch was followed by a number of White men. Quot thank god it is my friends Quot cried Ross going to meet them. Greetings were exchanged a Short explanation Given and they All gathered around Indian Tobe who was fast passing away. Izelia stood by Ross Side and shuddered As she gazed non the face of the Indian outlaw she had known All her life. His eyes met those of the girl and Reading in hers no doubt the question she had so often put to that rough gang without Success and the Lesii e to make some slight reparation for his Vil deeds he said Quot the girl no injun. Her White. Or gang kill her father one night he Stop at inn with lost o Gold. Her father capt. a Middle aged Man in the group of Hunters Ai found tie dying outlaw started. He was the one who had fired the Rifle which elided the career of Indian Tobe. He now approached Izelia and sad Quot then i claim you As my Niece poor girl. I am Henry Martin. Your poor father s Fate has been a rapped in mystery but this wretch s confession leaves us no doubts but what my brother was killed and robbed by this and Uncle and Niece were clasped in a touching embrace. The Hunters As soon As they could brought officers to the Lone inn. Which they found deserted. But careful and cautious search enabled them to track the gang to an artificial Cave in the Forest where the woman and six rough characters were arrested and afterwards brought to Justice. The woman corroborated the Story of Izelia s parentage. As revealed by in it Lian Tobe. Indian Tolie s wife had pleaded for the Little girl s life when Iier lather avas killed and it had l Een spared. Tie woman revealed tie spot Valiere the body of capt. Martin had been l tried and Izelia s father was then Given decent burial. Izelia was kept in school three years and Tjien slip returned to her i Uncle Henry a a Beautiful and Young woman. Ross Davis never forgot Liis fair rescuer. As soon As she it turned from school lie offered her his heart and it was not Rohi n s i Itenia Iii Stine. That animal instinct is Lively in the Bird was exemplified by the Robin a few Days ago. On one of the Beautiful sugar Maple Trees which grow in the Yard of a Well known citizen of this place a Mother Robin had built her nest and As time Avent on she was rewarded l y a Brood of Young Robins. One evening when she had nestled herself for the night a Chicken Hawk observed the harmless redbreast and with a Swift Dart she caught the Mother and took her flight. When the father Robin came Back to see that All m As Wudl for the night he found the Young Birds j without Protection. He fluttered j about and his bewailing song told Liis bereavement. He seemed to realize that something dreadful had befallen his partner for he began to make preparations to act the part of a Mother for the night. The owner of the property who had observed the events arose Early next morning and he noticed the male Bird taking its flight. The bereaved widower Soai de High and was soon lost to sight. He remained away the entire Day and w Hen he returned at Nightfall he brought w Ith him another wife. The strange Bird was guided to to nest and readily comprehending the Sittia Tion she quickly covered the half starved Little creatures while the male Bird darted off to find some food. There was great rejoicing when he returned. The new Mother has since then taken excellent care of her ado ted children and the father Robin s song i mainly indicates his Houidas Fuhro can acid dirty Chancy m. Depew raises the question whether cleanliness is essential to health. In a lecture on Ireland he says Quot children swarm Ever Liere for t e marriage Bond in Ireland is a Cou of Bond and Uliey Cut one off Quot year.
