But if his life was a miserable one at least there was one who thought of him constantly and who eagerly awaited the seventh day when "Mr. Campbell, M.C." would be off duty. Mary was growing to care for the erstwhile tramp, and her father's suspi? cions soon became aroused. Time hung heavy while Bob was away, but Mary spent a lot of her time helping in her father's store. This day an old woman came in to make some purchases. The Captain attended to her wants, and as he handed her the package she said: "I can't pay ye. Captain, till Mr. Simpson lakes our next load of fish to the factory." The Captain nodded understanding, but when the woman had left the store, Mary turned to him saying: "Father, we can't go on charging everything for everybody like this. The packing plant has got to pay more than a cent a pound for fish or these people can't make a living." "Yes, girlie, the price is too low, I must say."

Look it As Judson poured out the drinks, Simpson read the letter in question. It was on the letterhead of The Campbell Fish Co., Ltd., Halifax, N.S., and concluded with this important para- "Surething," replied Jack. "He hasn't any right to it anyway." "Seeing I've done all the work on it," grum? bled Simpson, "it's as much mine as his, seems to me." Before long they had reached their destina? tion. They put in at the wharf. Simpson made his way into the factory of the Campbell Packing Plant on the mainland. The plant was in the charge of Judson, a grasping and unprinci? pled man.
