Riles breakfasted as soon as the  dining-room was opened, eating his  meal* hurriedly, as be-^always did, albeit the YFrench-fried ^potatoes, to  which he was unaccustomed, could be  poised oil his knife only with' considerable effort. Then he sat down In  an arm-chair on the shady side of  the hotel to wait for Gardiner. He  had suddenly lost his interest in the  free lands which had been the purpose of his journey.  His wait was longer than he had  expected,    and'   he    broke it several  times by'strolls about the little town.  In size:-it; was much    the    same    as  Plainville.'but that was the chief point  of    resemblance.    .True,   "it had its  typical stores 'selling everything from  silk to coal oil; its blacksmiths' shops,  Ringing, witb the hammer oi the busy  smith on  ploughshare or horseshoe;  its Implement agencies, with * rows of  gaudpy-Ba}nted;:3w;a&ons^. mowers  and  force, If not* the principle, of the law".  ��������� "You don't mean that you'd do anythin'���������anythin' that wasn't right?" he  said.

Of course, if you're afraid to take a  sportsman's chance* for a half of forty  thousand dollars, call the deal off. I've  got lots of other fish to fry."  "You don't understand," said Riles.  "Ivain't/a'gpared, but I don't want t*  do. nothin that'll get us into trouble.  Harris is an .old^heighbour p* mine  an'-  got to take the chance, Hiram, and  then make good on the chance."

The streets were lined  with traffic. Riles estimated that In  two hours as many teams passed him,  as might be seen in Plainville in a  week; long-rows of box-cars were unloading on the side tracks; farmers'  effects and household goods of every  description were piled in great-heaps  about the railway yards; while horses,  cattle, pigs and poultry contributed to  the dust and din of the settlers' operations. Great wagons of lumber  were being loaded at the lumber  yards, and an unbroken procession of  wagons and farm machinery of every  description was wending itff'way slowly into tho distance where lay hope  of home or fortune-for the new settler.  It was almost noon when Gardiner  appeared on thc scene. "You don't  hurt you'self in the mornin's," was  Riles' greeting.  "Don't need to," hc answered cheerily. "Besides, I'd a long session after I left you last night. No, no particulars at present. 1 told you you  had spoiled your hands for that kind  of work. How d'ye like this air?  isn't that something worth breathing?"  "Good enough," said Riles, "but I  didn't come out here for air."  "No. you came for land. I'm surprised you're not out bouncing over  the prairie In a buckhoard long before  this."  Riles shot a quick glance at Gardiner. BUt he was pulling a cigar  and drinking in the warm sunshine  with obvious satisfaction,  "So I might o' been, but I thought  we kind o' made a date last night,  didn't we?"  "Did we? Oh, yea j now I remember. But I thought perhaps you'd  feel different about lt in the morning,' A man generally doeu. I don't  hold you to anything you naid last  night, RileB."  , Riles could not recall that he had  salt* anything that committed him in  any way, but Gardiner'u tone implied  that plainly enough.  "I ain't changed my mind," he said,  "hut I don't know'ii I Raid anything  blndin', did 1? 1 thought we waa  goin' V drive out t* your place t'*day  an 'talk thlnjfa over."  "Well, 1 Jutit didn't want you to  lofle any time over me If you thought  thlngn wouldn't work out," nald Gardiner.
