ing. shouting. It has been an apathetic cam-
paign.
There was a smaller crowd out to
hear the candidates last evening than
is usual at the last meeting of the
campaign. This was owing probably
to threatening weather. So far as
could be calculated, about three hun hundred
dred hundred were present, some forty or
fifty of whom were ladies.
Niel Ferguson, chairman of the
county executive committee, presided
and introduced the speakers. There
were on the stand beside the candi candidates,
dates, candidates, Col. R. F. Rogers, a Star re re--

We suppose Walter was there to keep
the candidates from fighting, but
after awhile he decided the danger
was over and sought more congenial
company.
Under the gallant old rule of "wom "women
en "women and children first," Mrs. Julia Tur Turner,

to make the opening talk. Mrs. Tur Turner

proud of her whether she is elected or
not.
Jack McCully, for the same office,
spoke next. Jack is the most prac practiced

as oratory is concerned put it over his
competitors. However, Allen Steph Stephens,

in earnest, was well listened to.
Followed the legislative candidates.
On account of his age, W. E. Mc Mc-Gahagin,
Gahagin, Mc-Gahagin, candidate for representative
against Nathan Mayo, was given the
first hearing. Mr. McGahagin looked
tired and feeble and his speech was
the same. It consisted principally in
reading MeConathy's letters (which
the judge can't get in the papers),
and that same string of stuff about
the road bonds that he never thought
of until somebody taught it to him.
He has not learned it very well, either.
He told how a great call from the
people had induced him to enter the
race, but did not give the names of
the callers. Most people know who
they are, however.

made the talk that might be expected

He refered simply but without boast boasting

he held positions on committees that
. had to do most of the hard work. He
showed how little his detractors, even
the astute McConathy, knew of the
regular procedure of legislation. He
was very courteous to his aged op
ponent, and apologized for having to
prove even the false statements of so
old a man. Mr. Mayo was well re
ceived by the audience.
Charlie Hunter followed. Mr. Hun Hunter
ter Hunter made a vigorous speech, explained
his legislative record without making
any apologies, and told the people of
what work must be accomplished be
fore the capital could be removed. He
complained of the lack of support that
the people of Ocala had given to their
representatives, praising, however,
Arthur, Cobb, who had comprised at
times the entire citizens' delegation
to Tallahassee. He had very little
criticism for Mr. Hocker, but warmly
praised the work of Mr. Mayo
Mr. Hocker closed. Mr. Hocker, as
might be expected, was the most
finished orator of the evening. He
devoted part of his time to criticising
Mr. Hunter's record, but most of it to
the inefficient conduct of affairs by
the state administration, which he
condemned for inefficiency and ex extravagance.

and prophesied that Marion county
would have to finish the road on which
the state has promised to do 33.1-3

for home rule. He wants the county
to have the right to attend to county
aaffirs, claiming very truthfully that
our people are as competent to look
after their own schools and roads as
anybody in Tallahassee. His speech
was very well received.

Wicker made the speech of a good
country neighbor and won the hearts
of the crowd.
The election is proceeding quietly,
but unless there is more interest than
in the campaign the vote will be light.
It is believed that Trammell and
Clark will carry the county by large
majorities. The vote for railroad com commissioner
missioner commissioner is problematical. It is con considered
sidered considered that Mayo's election is certain,
tho' the campaign of lying and mis misrepresentation
representation misrepresentation which broke out
against him in the last two weeks,
has undoubtedly had some effect on
those not acquainted with the facts. It
believed that the contest between
Hunter and Hocker will be close, with
the odds at present on Hocker. He
is very strong in the city, and the
city voters are turning out better
than those in the country. Freddy is
also strong in some country precincts.
t was supposed that Hunter was im
pregnable in the country, but the last
few days have shown some gaps in his
fences. However, he has a great many
friends, and it's anybody's election
until the votes are counted.
It is not advisable to bet on who
will be the winning candidate for the
office of supervisor. It is to be sup
posed that the women will vote for
Mrs. Turner, and a good many men
are voting for her in order to give
the women a chance to make good in
office. Also, some men, we regret to
say, are voting against her just be
cause she is a woman. It would seem
ogical that Mr. Stephens be elected,
as he has made a very efficient mem
ber of the school board, an office pay
ing little in proportion to a great deal
of work. But Jack McCully has lots
of friends, and will probably receive
a good many second choice votes from
friends of the other two candidates.
Up to noon today, at the Ocala
polls, 201 votes had been cast, about
third by women. As the reporter
left the polls, he met three ladies
coming in to vote.
The managers are, at Box 1, R. B.
Newman, J. D. Wilkes and E. C. Stan-
aland, inspectors; W. W. Clyatt, clerk.
Box 2, O. H. Rogers, Harry Borland,
Albert Harris, inspectors; L. W. Du
val, clerk. Mr. Duval and most of the
inspectors volunteered to take the
places of the men appointed, who
failed to show up. They were all
hungry at noon, and sent word to
Hunter and Hocker, who were both
down stairs, to send them some din dinner,
ner, dinner, or they would count both of them
out. Hunter and Hocker sent work
back that they themselves were shy
dinners, and afraid to go home lest
the neighbors might not have sent
anything in. Frank Harris Jr. carried
the suffering officials an ice cream
soda apiece, which was owing to his
natural kindness of heart, and not be
cause, as some cynics say, Frankie is
going to run for office in 1924.
We expect enough returns will be
in before midnight to decide the re result,
sult, result, and they will be bulletined at
the Star office.

LABOR BOARD WILL

Stiff Cut in the Pay of Railway Men
Likely to Cause a Big
Strike
Chicago, June 6. (By Associated

three labor representatives on the
United States labor board, a new
wage cut of seven cents an hour for
railway shop mechanics and nine cents
an hour for freight car men, cutting
400,000 shopmen approximately sixty
million dollars annually, was ordered
today by the board, the cut to be ef effective

at this time the speaker chose three

is: Wisdom, what to do next, in refer reference

virtue, doing it. And these words
were applied to modern business.
Modern education should fit the future

the best way to do it. Those who had
the pleasure of hearing Dr. Bristol's
address could not but be impressed
by the careful thought and study he
had given his subject and the sim simplicity

impressed his hearers. The advice

to them in choosing or not choosing

For several years past it has been
the custom for each graduating class
to give some concrete expression to
the school by giving something that
is badly needed, and the money this
year for these gifts was obtained
from the proceeds of the senior play.
Miss Mary Sheppard, the popular
principal of the school, this year had
been presented with a typewriter, and
the remainder of the amount was
given to the high school to be used
next year in buying something needed,
the same to be decided by the faculty.
Miss Sheppard gracefully acknowl
edged this useful gift, and at this time
thanked the school board, Mr. Shealy,
the students, parents and friends of
the school for their co-operation in
the past term which made the past
year's work so effective and which
had brought such excellent results.
Mr. H. G. Shealy, superintendent of
public instruction, briefly addressed
the graduating class, saying that the
state and commonwealth owed the
youth of the county a debt and in pro providing

CHAPTER I.

A Bolt From the Blue.
Eighteen below; fair weather for
December in New Manitoba, where the
forest, though It chills the soil till
midsummer, yet shuts out the razor razor-edge
edge razor-edge of the winds that make the prai prairies,
ries, prairies, farther south, an icy inferno.
Here the bush, which had seemed
to stretch out inimitably, thinned Into
bedraggled patches among the up up-cropping
cropping up-cropping rocks. A little farther and
it began once more ; the break was like
a great, curving arm thrust into the
heart of it, as if some giant fingers
had plucked up the trees in handsful
and scooped the foundation from the
frozen soil, and then had been with withdrawn,
drawn, withdrawn, leaving the imprints of the
great finger-tips.
These finger-tips were huge sink sinkholes,
holes, sinkholes, sometimes filled with water, so
that they formed clear lakes; more
often sodden sponges of decayed veg vegetable
etable vegetable matter, oozyt treacherous and
unstable. The finger-lines were the
circular ridges marking the subsidence
of the mud. The thumb was Big Mus
keg, which the two men who stood on
the top of the humpbacked ridge t
could see extended beneath them.
Big Muskeg, at this point less than
half a mile across, was everywhere of
unsounded depth. It curved and wound,
a river of ooze, now broadening into
chains of lakes, now narrowing into
gullies ; here and there crossed by
trails, but never stable, nowhere of
fering firm foundation for- the perma-1
nent way of the Missatlbi railroad. j
The Missatlbi was a branch line,
feeding the new road that was push-j
ing northward toward the ports-to-be
on Hudson bay. It linked with it at j
Clayton, whence it was being extended j
eastward into a virgin wilderness, j
Even in the days when half a dozen
companies were pegging out ways for j
lines that were to divert the wheat I
north, Joe Bostock's line bad been the.
joke of legislatures and financiers.
Those other lines that were being
built into Clayton passed through the
wheat-lands; Joe's line ran east out of
Clayton into a wilderness. Joe Bostock
had secured his capital, but he had no
competitors. j
And slowly Missatlbi, with Its small j
shareholders and limited means, had
gone ahead. The first location par-'
ties had cleared a road to Big Mus Muskeg.

way. But that was all, save for the
partly constructed shacks and build buildings
ings buildings for the workmen there, and the
sheds for the construction material
that had not yet been freighted in.
Joe, standing, with legs straddling
the top of the ridge, turned to Wilton
Carruthers, the chief engineer of the j
company, with eyebrows arched and
humorous Inquiry on his weather-,
beaten old face. There was no need
for speech at that moment, because
the mind of each man dwelt on the
identical problem. :
The two men had come east by dog- j
sleigh, accompanied by two half half-breeds,
breeds, half-breeds, Jean Passepartout and Papll-,
Ion, the one in charge of the dogs, the
other carrying the transit-compass.
They had camped seven miles back on
the preceding evening, and had set out
at daybreak to survey the swamp swamplands

confront them clamored for solution I
before construction could be carried';

the future of the Missatlbi. j

nor Carruthers could hope to aecora-j
plish anything. Wilton was seeking!

Theoretically he was endeavoring to

might be coaxed above the unstable, ;

the least possible deviation of route j
with no more than four-fifths of. one j

Actually and unconsciously he was
seeking to interpret the natural con convulsion

tibi's Missa-tibi's precarious capital diminishing to
vanishing point, while the story of the
great blunder percolated through the
lobbies of the provincial legislature,
filled with bland, jeering, ill-conditioned
men to whom one day's tramp
such as their laborers performed
would mean apoplexy.
Their faces haunted Wilton. He re remembered
membered remembered half a dozen whom he had
approached when the Missatibl scheme
was first bruited abroad. There was,
in particular, Tom Bowyer, of the New
Northern line, his many interests en entrenched
trenched entrenched behind the bulwarks of po political
litical political influence. Joe Bostock had sug suggested
gested suggested an amalgamation in the belief
that Tom Bowyer could wreck the bill
in the legislature. But Tom had
laughed in Joe's face, and had not
even opposed the measure.
"Go ahead with your muskrat line,
Joe!" he had said. "I won't hinder
you." 1
The surveyors who made the pre preliminary
liminary preliminary reconnoissance had shirked
their work and lied. Wilton suspect suspected
ed suspected that most of them had been in Bow Bow-yers
yers Bow-yers pay. Bowyer and Bostock were
old rivals. They had reported Big Mus-
keg to be an insignificant swamp with
a firm underbed about the portage. It
could be crossed, of course, in the
end, since nature always yielded to
man. But the Missatibl must either
swing a huge loop around it, through
territory unsurveyed, or set to itself
the task of filling those unsounded
depths with thousands of tons of rock.
"D n you!" said Wilton, shaking
his fist toward the valley. "Well beat
you yet. We've made a bad blunder,
Joe. Crooked work, without doubt doubt-though
though doubt-though -I can't imagine why Bowyers
gang should take the trouble to hurt
us unless, of course, they guess
Joe Bostock shook his head. "No,
they haven't guessed that, Wilton,"
he answered. 'Til stake my hat on
that There ain't nobody except me
and yon and Kitty knows. It's Jest
bad luck, Wilton"
Joe could never sense treachery nor
bring himself to believe in its possi
bility; and if that weakness had kept
him. In the main, a poor man, it had
bound his friends to him with unbreak unbreakable
able unbreakable bonds.
"At the best it's gross negligence,"
said Wilton. "Those surveyors
scamped their work. I accepted their
reports. I couldn't go out with the
transit and aneroid and follow them
an up to check their results. But 1
might have sounded Big Muskeg. I
didn't" His voice choked. "Joe, If
yon have any sense, youll fire me
first," he said.
Joe Bostock laid Ms hands on the
other man's shoulders and the humor-

ous smile came on his face. "Well. I
guess not, Wilton," he said. "You
ain't to blame. You've rione all tha'
mortal man could do. The Missatibl
couldn't have been built at all with without
out without you. Fire you? Why, Kitty'd li;4ve
my life if I dared surest such n
thing."
Wilton frowned involuntarily at the
reference to the pretty young wife
whom Joe Bostock had married In
Winnipeg the year before. Joe's first
marriage had been unhappy; it had
been long ago. and Wilton knew there
had been a separation, though Joe
wa? always reticent about that.

not, and Kitty thought the world of

Wilton could never understand hii
secret feeling about Kitty. She was
devoted to Joe. Perhaps that was

what lay beneath his latent antago antagonism

her. He was jealous of a woman's
love for Joe.
T guess notl" said Joe Bostock
again, pressing his hand hard down
on Wilton's shoulder.
And, in that Instant. Wilton heard
the crack of a rifle, and felt a violent
blow on the upper part of the left arm,
which knocked him to the ground. As
he fell, Joe Bostock pitched forward
upon him.

face.
Wilton saw that Joe's mackinaw had
a tiny tear In it, over the breast. A
trickle of blood seeped through the
cloth. He wrenched the garment open
with his right hand, pulled up the
sweater, and tore the shirt apart. The
heart, fluttering -tike a wounded bird,
stopped under his hand. Joe sighed
once, but he never stirred again. The
bullet had passed clean through Joe
Bostock's heart from the back. And,
as he tried to raise Joe's body, Wilton
realized that the same bullet had
broken his left arm, which hung limp
from the shoulder.
He sprang to his feet, a mad
wrath giving back to him his ebbing
strength. He glared about him, but
it was impossible to ascertain from
where the shot had come. He could
not even locate the direction within
a hundred degrees, for Joe had been In
the act of turning. Nobody was In
sight, and the woods were silent,
His bellowing call of fury that weift
echoing through the trees elicited no
answer. He tore strips from his hand
kerchief, holding It between his teeth,
and, with his left hand on his knee,
knotted them about a stick and im improvised
provised improvised a tourniquet. The blood was
spurting down his sleeve In jets, the
pain was Intense, and it was Impos
sible to take off the mackinaw and
hope to replace his arms In It; but
he twisted with all his force until the
diminishing flow showed that he had
compressed the artery. Thrusting the
longer end of the stick beneath his
armpit, he passed the other through
the buttonhole of the garment, and.
stooping, managed to get .Joe's body
upon his shoulder and to hold it with
his right arm,
His Impulse was to carry Joe's body
back to the camp, but he knew that It
would be Impossible to make the dis distance.
tance. distance. Yet to leave It would mean
the certainty of mutilation by bears
or timber-wolves unless he could
build a cairn of stones. And of that
he was equally incapable. He set
Joe's body down, and, In the first full
realization of his loss and his predica predicament,
ment, predicament, he shouted curses to the sky.
That murder had been Intended he
did not believe; no doubt the shot had
been a bullet fired at some nearer
mark, perhaps a hare, and by one of
the half-breeds. He suspected that
the transit-bearer, following them up,
had fired the shot, and, seeing the fa fatality,
tality, fatality, had fled.
But the thought that this might be
the explanation was- only a fleering
one. Joe was dead, and his body must
be cared for, just as if he were alive alive-taken
taken alive-taken back to the camp and thence
out of the woods. There was no pos possibility
sibility possibility of leaving Joe's body there.
Yet It seemed to him that he could
not hope to reach the camp. And
now another Idea came to him.
It was seven miles back to the camp,
but only five to the portage over the
frozen swamp. Upon the other side
of the portage was a trail that came
out of the prairie southward and
wound Into the unknown north.
Along this Indians brought their win winter
ter winter catches to the trading-store of
McDonald, the factor of the Hudson's
Bay company.
Traveling was hard along the shore
of the great Muskeg, but It would
mean two miles less, and It was just
possible to make the store. McDon
ald was a queer, taciturn, sometimes
venomous old man, and had evinced a
strong dislike of Wilton on the occa
sion of their last meeting. Yet Mc
Donald would shelter him and receive
Joe's body. And then there was Molly,
his daughter.
Wilton, having made his choice, act acted
ed acted on it at once. With a great effort
he raised Joe's stiffening form upon
his shoulder; and doggedly he began
his awful journey, his right arm grasp grasping
ing grasping the dead man, his helpless left
bugging the tourniquet-stick against
his side.
He stumbled over the rough ground
until he reached the cleared road
through the trees. Here the going was
easier, but the burden numbed his
right hand and shoulder, the throbbing
pain In his left seemed to beat time to
his footsteps, and the ache of the
cramping muscles Increased the agony
of his wound and began to spread
down his body.
A wind sprang up, driving gusts of
whirling snow Into his eyes. A deadly
lethargy was creeping over him, and
presently, turning his head to shield
his eyes from the beating blasts, he
saw a trickle of crimson on the road
behind him.
The tourniquet had loosened. He
was bleeding his life away. The blood
was gushing down his fingers. Wil
ton set Joe's body down and succeeded
in tightening the compress. And it
was only after an almost superhuman
struggle that he could get Joe over
his shoulder. He knew that If he was
forced to set the body down again he
could never lift it.
With knees bent, tripping ver the

roots of the trees, and reel ins
through a swimming world, he stag staggered
gered staggered on and on and on. And neither
his anger nor the thought of Kitty
could have kept his resolution through
that nightmare of pain. It was all Joe
now, the memory of Joe, his love for
him, and his resolve that his friend's
remains should not be torn by the timber-wolves.
Joe had befriended htm years be before,
fore, before, when he had drifted, penniless.
Into Winnipeg. Joe's faith had been
his own, and the secret of the Missati

bl theirs.
So the miles reeled off behind him,
while the wind Increased and the snow
fell thicker along the way. At last the
trees opened, and the bleak shore of
Big Muskeg lay before him, a desert
of Ice and snow, with the bluffs oppo opposite,
site, opposite, and beyond them the trees once
more.
At once the fierce swirl of the gale
caught him, whistling like sirens, bor boring
ing boring into his face like white-hot
probes. The Ice that fringed his
lashes blinded him and pulled them
from the lids when he tried to open
his eyes. He reeled on, clutching Joe'i
body, and heard his own voice go
from him In shouts of despair. They
rolled across the snow, and the echoes
came In faint, mimicking answer from
the distant' cliffs.
Wilton retained sufficient conscious consciousness

It offered no foundation for a railroad
