As for Geneva Benet, she found
herself looking at a leanly ade

In the center of the cleared space
Ferguson, powerful and thick bod

frowzy individual called Ferguson,
"but she's only another tramp just

Oh.-h-W White with fury, the
girl in the shabby tweed suit rush

"No, dont interfere," she panted
in a fierce undertone, "don't mix in

that were both hard and bitter,

started this," the stranger snapped.

patiently, he shook her off and
again faced the girl's persecutor.
"Are you going to let this young
lady talk, or arent you?"
Ferguson's answer was a vicious
swing at the stranger s jaw.
Penned in by the fog, the crowd
seemed suddenly enormous, with
waterproof hats, baseball caps, sea

even more furiously. Mears had
been right. She shouldn't have come
to Patuxtpwn on Saturday when
bugeyes, pungies and shaloops were
in along with oysters, booze and
the devil. How would this brawl
end ? Merely in battered faces and
skinned knuckles or in staccato
shots, followed by sudden signifi

knew, was a terrible rough-and

Geneva Benet suddenly found
herself inexplicably curious to
know why he had wandered to Pat-uxtown.
Stand and fight, yuh yellah
monkey!" roared the oysterman
when the hard bitten young man
adroitly dodged a pile driver blow.
Tah! Fight! Quit stallin." An
oysterman suddenly pushed the
stranger off balance thus enabling
Ferguson, snarling and red faced,
to land a short forearm jab to the
side of his enemy's jaw. At the re
sounding smack! Geneva Benet
flinched and expected to see the
slighter figure go over backwards.
She had, you see, witnessed all too
many fights Since coming to Patux-

At the deadly glare now playing
in the stranger's semi-dazed blue
eyes, Geneva Benet felt sick she
felt, nay, she knew that something
decisive was about to happen.
With a scarlet thread of blood1
trickling from a corner of his j
mouth, the man in the uniform '
coat swayed backwards, weakly
but efficiently parrying his enemy's
furious blows until, so quickly that
the girl could not follow its motion,
the ex-soldier's right hand shot out.
At once the oysterman lurched back
with a ludicrous expression of sur
prise stamped on his sweaty fea-

The crowd milled and swayed
across a pale road made of crushed
ovster shells and a half shout went
up when the scarred ex -soldier
leaped desperately back to avoid a
furious slash which missed his
jugular by a scant inch. Quick as a
recoiling spring the blue eyed man
darted in to again deliver a curious
chopping blow with the side of his
hand. Instantly the big man utter
