It all depends on the survey, I guess." A short walk further and they ascended an elevation that brought them in sight of as pretty a body of water as any one could wish to see. CHAPTER VII A STARTLING SIGHT. Clear lake was situated in a hollow surrounded on every side by the wooded hills which marked the northern boun dary 0 Happy Valley. It ran in and out among the elevations which jutted into its waters like so many promontories. In some places it was wildly picturesque, in others serenely beautiful. As a whole, the spot needed only development to at tract attention "I'd like to camp out here for a month," cried Bert, wii.h great ardor. "So would I with a gun and rod," replied Fred. "ls there anything to shoot?" "I'll bet the underbrush is full of rabbits." "Say, what's the matter with our coming here when we get our vacation?" asked Bert, eagerly. "J\Ir. Fisher might not let us both off at the same time. He's very busy this year, and I expect things will be lively they had s taked off the hotel man s eighty acres, reaching from the lake back to a line beyond the crest o.f the hills. "Are we done now?" asked Bert in a tone oi di s ap pointment. HJ thought it would take all day to-morrow." "We're not done yet. We've only got the section di-vided off." "What else i s there to do?" "I've got to find a suitable site for the hotel buildings." "Ho! Can t he build the hotel anywhere within the eighty acres?" "Of .course. But the man wants to put the big build ing up at a reasonable cost. You must have noticed that this spot i s almost all rock. He doesn't want to pay out thousands of dollars on leveling and excavating." "Oh, I see." "If there' s no place near enough to the lake to build a hotel at a fair expenditure I suppose he'll give up the scheme.', "And it's up to you to pick out such a spot, eh?" "If it is here, yes." "And i it i sn't?" "That's not our funeral. All I have to do is to make my report to Mr. Fisher. If it is favorable I suppose the hotel will be put up. If it isn't--" "It won't,'' grinned Bert. "I'm getting hungry. My mouth is watering for fried bacon and eggs; but I hate to walk all the way back through that ravine. Can't we leave some of these things here?" "Yes, and Fred indicated what part of their outfit could be left in the hollow of a big tree near the lake. Then they took up their line of march for the ravine, and before it was dark reached the creek where the cat boat lay just as they had left her. all summer."

NEVER SAY D::LR "I believe a great many things of value were taken away. Luke lost his gold watch and a five-dollar bill. The old man lost bis watch and a wallet full of bills. I believe some of 1\Irs. Jenkins' jewelry was taken, and a lot of sterling silver articles were also pinched. Jenkins, they say, has sent to Creston for a detective." Fred passed Luke Jenkins on the street that afternoon, and that young aristocrat didn't appear to be in an amiable frame of mind. He favored the young surveyor with a scowl. Luke was down on Fred more than ever since the brave boy pulled Dora Darling out o.f the rapids of Snake river. While it is true that Luke. was delighted to learn that the girl had escaped from drowning, he regarded it as a personal affront that she owed her life to the boy he dis1 ikcd so much. 1\s soon as he learned that Dora was all right, he had (ailed upon her to offer his congratulations, and to excuse hi s own conduct on that occasion. The servant carried his name upstairs, and then brought him word that the girl was not at home. Luke was as mad as a hornet, for he had reason to know that Dora was at home. He called on the following day, and got the same mes sage. He went off in a hufl', and when he saw her on the street that same afternoon, he wouldn't notice her, which just suited Dora, as she was determined to have nothing further to do with him. Luke's animosity toward him didn't worry Fred for a cent. The two had never been friend s at any time, and it didn't seem likely there would ever be any change in their present relationship. Before the local bank closed for the day Freel took a japanned box to Mr. Darling, and asked him to keep it for him in the bank vault. The $6,000 in gold coin "Which had been in the bag was in it, and the boy was resolved not to touch a penny of it until he was satisfied he might do !!O with justice to him self. Fred would have liked to have persuaded Bert to make a similar disposition of his share of the gold. but his office associate wouldn't listen to the suggestion even for a mo ment. He c1ung to his original argument that findings is keep ings, at least in that case, and he stowed the bag of money at the bottom of his trunk in his room, where he could look at and handle the eagles and double eagles whenever he was di posed. He had counted it, and found he had something over$5,000. The night following the robbery at the Jenkins' mansio1 he counted it over once more with immense satisfaction. Next morning he found his window open from the bot tom, and was rather surprised at the circumstance. After breakfast he had occasion to go to his trunk for something, and found its contents all topsy-turvy. With his heart in his throat he looked down in the cor' ner where be had stowed the bag of money. The bag with its preciou contents was missing. IIe threw everything out of his trunk in his frantic search for his treasure, but there was not a sign of it any where Bert wi-s so disheartened over bis loss that he scarcely had the courage to go to the office. He arrived half an hour late, and his face sho.wed that something had gone wrong with him. "What's the matter, Bert?" asked Fred. wondering what ailed him. "Nothing," replied the other, shortly. "Nothing, eh? Why, you look as if you'd lost your best friend." "I've lost something as good as that." "\Yhat did you lo e?" "I've lost that bag of money I brought from the hills." "You have!" whistled Fred. "I have, honor bright." "Why, how came you to lose it?" "Somebody entered my room last night, and went through my trunk. That's where I kept it, and this morn ing it wasn't there." "\\Tell, upon my word, that's hard luck. You haven't any suspicion as to the identity of the thief?" Bert, who felt like crying over his lo ss, shook his head dejectedly. "Tell me all the particulars," asked Fred. There wasn't much to tell, and Bert soon told all he knew. "Some person must have seen you through the window counting that money." "1\ly room is on the second floor, so I don't see how anyhody could have seen me." They talked the matter over for awhile, and then the subject was dropped. That night the Darling house was entered and plun dered of silveI"ware, jewelry, and pieces of valuable bric-a brac. CHAPTER X. THE NAPHTHA LAUNCH THA' VISITED BRENTWOOD. Two bold burglaries committed within three day s threw the good people of Brentwood into a fever of consterna tion. Until the Jen kins' home was entered and robbed such a crime hadn't been known in the town for years. The detective who came from Creston to aid the Brentwood constabulary declared that both jobs bad ben. done

Starbuck, the wealthy president of the wagon works, sumed to be the navigator and general factotum on the was cleaned out of money, jewelry, and various small artiboat. cles. of considerable value, the feeling in town developed About eleven o'clock on the morning following the last foto a kind of panic, and the people began to ask one anburglary the launch left her anchorage and headed down other who would be the next victim. the river. Abner Jenkins announced a reward of $1,000 for the apprehension and conviction of the criminal or criminals. Mr. Starbuck also posted a reward of the same amount, while Mr. Darling and the town council each added$500. A second detective was called in, and the entire police department of Brentwood became active in the hope of earning the money and adding to their reputation as sleuths. A bright watch was kept in the neighborhood of the homes of the well-to-do r esidents, wher e another attempt was looked for, but it didn't come. The crook or crooks, eithe r satisfied for the present with the results obtained, or rendered wary by the vigilance of the officers of the law, made no :further effort to enrich themselves at the expe nse of the Brentwood people. The detectives followed up several clews that came their way but iu the end they amounted to nothing. During all this time a dainty-looking naphtha launch, which had come llp the river two days before the first bur glary, passing the rapids through the tortuous channel which alone permitted a safe pa ssage of that dangerous stretch of navigation, lay off BaTclay's wharf. A gentleman, with a profusion of glossy black whi s kers, who said his name was Redgrave, and announced himself as the owner of the pretty boat, was much in evi dence around town, looking at availdble sites for the erec tion of a bolt and nut works, which he said' a New York company was proposing to erect either at Creston or Brentwood. His presence excite d considerable interest among those who learned about hi s errand, as he hinted that in case the works were estab li she d at Brentwood the P. Y. & D. railroad, which passed through Creston, would build a branch to the former place, a proposition the company wa s known to have been considering for more than a year past, and had even gone so far as to have the proposed right of way surveyed This gentleman was accompanied by a bright-eyed, smoothly shaven man, whom he introduced as J\fr. Jax, who was to be manager of the proposed works. When they were not looking at vacant plots of ground they were wandering around the residence section of town where the better class houses were situated, apparently admiring the architectmal b eauties of the different resi dences. As the smooth-face d man intimated that he intended to build a handsome home in Brentwood if the works were One of the Creston detectives was on the wharf talking to Barclay at the time, but her departnre didn't see m to give him any concern. Evidently Messrs. Redgrave and Jax were above sns picion. Two hours later Fred S na.rt, accompanied by Dora Darlin g, came down to the same wharf, embarked on 1\fr Barclay's catboat, and also started down the river. Freel was going to Creston on husiness. for 1\Ir. Fisher, and for reasons of his own he chose to go by water instead of taking the convenient trolley. He had invited Dora to make the trip with him. Clearly both Dora and her mother placed a world of con fidence in the young surveyor when neither raised the slightest opposition to his proposal, though both knew the boat would have to essay the crooked channel in the rapids in making the journey. "Isn't it a delightful afternoon?" said Dora, enthusias tically. "It is, indeed," replied Fred. "You don't seem to be a bit nervous, though the la st time you were ont on the river you nearly lost your life." "Why should I be?" s he a sked with a smile "Aren't you with me?" Fred flushed with pleasure at her words. "1 am glad both you and your mother feel so confident of my ambility to take care of you," he said with a smi l e "I was almost afraid she would object to you going when I told her where I was bound." "We both felt that you would not have invited me i E you though I would be exposed to a ny real danger." "That's right, Dora. I know the c hann el through the rapids like a book, for I have been through there more than a dozen times. A cool head, a steady hand and prr fect knowledge of the navigation of the channel all thnt is necessary to carry a boat safe ly through. Still, en'n sA, I wouldn't take you along only that the day i s a feet one for the trip." "Yes, Fred, I know yon will take the best of care of me; so does mother. In fa ct, I have such confidence in you that I would even face a little risk under your p r otec, tion." "You make me feel very happy to hear you say that. You have bad some evidence wlrnt I am willing to gu through for your sake. I promise you that I s hall always be ready to stand by you under. any circumstances. More than couldn't say." ,,.

NEVER SAY DIE. "Did you shoot them?" she a s ked opening her eyes very wide. "I did. I was determined to save you from a situation that I knew must be terrible to you. They refused to give you up pea ceab ly, and fired upon me first, so should their wounds have a fatal result their blood will be on their own heads." "Oh, why did they act that way toward us? What kind of men are they? I b egge d t hem to go back for you, but they only laughed at me, andsaid they'd put me ashore somewhere down the riv er at dark. I was so frightened. I could not understand their actions at all. I feared they might be crazy people who had escaped from some asylum." "They are not crazy, Dora, but very dangerous men. 'I'hey are the burglars who robbed your father's house, as w e ll as the J e nkin s and Starbuck residences." "Oh, F r ed, i s that true?" with a nervous glance at the cabin entrance, throug h which, now that she 1ras more composed, s h e could see the forms of two of the uncon scious rascals huddled up in the cockpit. ''Yes, it is true Come, let me take you on board the launch. I'm going to tow the sailb oat up to C'rc6ton, and the sooner we start the better. Don't be alarmed," as she hung back. "The danger is a ll over." "But I am afraid to pass those men,'' she Baicl. "Brace up, Dora. Nothing i s going to happen to yon while I am with you," he replied reassuringly. Then s h e allowed him to l ead her out into the cockp i t, where the crooks la y He lift ed her over into the l aunc h, ancl told her to nm into the cabin and stay there. Fre d t oid Bert to l ower the Katydid's mainsai l while he took a look at the wounded burglars. R e dgrav e was unconscious from the shock of a bullet which had ploughed a furrow above his temple, while Yate s' injury con s i sted of a broken collar-bone, the ball having passed out through the back part of his neck. J ax 's wound was apparently the most serious of the three s o far as Fred could see, for the bullet had passed completely through hi s c h est, coming out through t h e back of his coat. "I've got to get the boats underway. It's coming on dark, and we can.'t go on drifting down the river "Promise me that you will come back. I've something of great importance to tell you-something that I want you to do for me." Ilis tone was so earnest and insistent that Freel, some what against his inc lin ation, agreed to return after he had got the boats headed up the river. "Tell me one thing more-are Redgrave and Yates done up for good R(' "No. They arc unconscious, but not seriously wountlecl as far as I can see." "Did you intend to bring them in here?" "I'm going to carry them in right away." "Don't do it until after I have tolcl you what I have to say.

28 NEVER SAY DIE. Fred read it carefully over and said it was sufficiently plain. "Put it in your pocket and be careful of it. Recover the money as soon as you can, and carry out my wishes. Do youyromise me that on your word of honor?" "I do," replied Fred, earnestly, as he took J ax's hand in his. Just then Fred noticed that the sailboat had come to a rest, and he heard Bert calling to him. "I must leave you now, Mr. Jax," he said, in a sympa thetic voice. "Perhaps you will recover after all. A doc tor will be able to say when he examines you. At any rate I hope .you will, for I would prefer not to have your death on my hands." He gave the ma:p. another drink to revive him, anc1 then left the cabin, to find the boats close to one of the Creston wharves. Pulling on the tow-line he worked the Katydid up to the launch and boarded her. Then he took the launch alongside the nearest wharf and made her fast. "Bert, run up to the police station, and tell the officer in charge that we have the Brentwood burglars on board, ready to turn over to the authorities. Say they are all wounded, one perhaps fatally, and that they must send a wagon and a surgeon." Bert started off on his errand, leaving Fred and Dora together. "I hope you won't blame me too severely for getting you into this trouble, Dora," said the boy. "When I in vited you to take the sail I could not foresee the unfortu nate ending of the excursion." "Blame you, Fred!" she said, taking his hand in hers. ")fo. Why should I? You were not responsible for what has happened. Besides, did you not afterward risk your I ife to get me away from those men? Neither mother nor father will blame you, either. They will say you did all in your power to protect me. Then you have recovered all our property that was stolen, as well as the property taken from the homes of the J enkinses and the Star bucks. You have fairly earned the reward offered, and I congratulate you on winning it." In three-quarters of an hour Bert returned with a wagon containing three policemen and a physician. The doctor shook his head over Jax, and he was removed to the town hospital, while the other two were patched up and carried to the city lock-up. As soon as the prisoners were taken away Fred started the launch up the river toward Brentwood, with the sail boat in tow, passing the rapids :with the aid of the moon light. The launch was secured at Barclay's wharf, and then Fred took Dora home and told the thrilling story of their adventures during the afternoon. Next day Fred Stuart found himself a hero, as the news of his capture of the burglars and the recovery of their plunder spread all over town like wild.fire. Jax died in the Creslon hospital that afternoon the other two rascals recovered from the wounds, were tried in due course, convicted, and sent to the State prison for a term of years. The reward of $3,000 was divided between Fred and Bert, though the former got all the glory of the affair, which, as a matter of fact, he deserved. The day Bert put his$1,500 in the bank he discovered his lost bag of gold behind a small bookcase in his room. He had not the slightest idea how it got there, but Fred, when he heard about it, said Bert must have put it there in his sleep, notwithstanding that his friend asserted that never to his know ledge had he walked in his sleep in his life. A few days after the trial and conviction of the robbers Fred told Bert about the buried money, and asked him to help in its recovery and removal. They got a few da.ys' vacation for the purpose, took the launch up to Swan creek, went over to the lake, and dig ging at the spot described in the paper, found gold coin in bags to the value of \$75,000. Fred kept perfect faith with the dead Jax, and sent his family in New York City exactly half of the amount re covered. With a part of his share he immediately purchased the property at the lake which had attracted him as a splendid hotel site. Soon afterward he made a deal with a well-known hotel man, and sold the property at a big advance on his original investment. Fred, during the following spring, surveyed the new tension of the trolley line to Taylorville, and thencefor ward took that branch of Mr. Fisher's business entirely off his hands Subsequently he became Mr. Fisher's partner in the en tire business, and not long afterward the accepted suitor for Dora Darling's han .d. On his twenty-second birthday they were married, and no happier couple than they reside in Brentwood, where he is still alluded to as the Young Surveyor of Happy Valley. THE END.
