The deputy-inspector had arrived and was check ing up on the cattle. "You get out of here! I say, you git out, or there'll be trouble!" The farmer and his family were gath mrcA tnerether outside the house, the former in a freniy of rage agatnst the deputy-inspector. "Can't we do anything?" Henry asked Lefty. "NbDe. Except to convince those poor creatures that the law must take it course."

We'd better keep out of this," muttered George. "Now you git oat or I'll shoot ye," shouted the mountaineer, pointing his rifle at the unfortun ate inspector.

"For heaven's sake, Martin, are vnn insane? Put down that gun at once," cried the girl. "Now tell mo tVio trouble!1' Her voice, on an imperious note, was beautifully modulated. With a hand on the mountaineer's arm, forcing his gun down, she urneri and faced the alarmed deputy-inspector. Honrv eausrht his breath. The bravery of the child! Indeed she looked little more! And she was beautiful to look at!" "He's Come to kill my cattle, Miss Virginia" quavered the farmer. "He Wants to ruin us. It's a plot agin us. I'm tellin' ye!

The only daughter of a well-established family, like so many South erners, her people had been impov erished since the Civil War. Her father's sister, a devoted old maid, completed the household. Giving her horse to a darky, the girl a serious expression on her lovely face entered the house through the kitchen. Without her usual cheerv greeting to the old mammy, she walked past her and out to the porch. Through the doorway, the ne gress saw Virginia coming to a halt in front of a swinging bird cage, staring up at it. Lost in her dreams, Virginia saw two birds on the perch instead of one.
