And a glorious sleighride home it was for all except the two prisoners, whom the police took into custody.

The story of the camp fire girls in the mountains is told, all but the subtitle, “A Christmas Success Against Odds.” There was a real success in store for them. The police made a raid, but found that the criminal element that had gained a throttle hold on the labor organization in the mines had cleared out so clean that not a living vestige of them could be discovered. The way was now clear, and the Camp Fire Girls carried out their original plans, successfully and much to the benefit of the poverty stricken families of the strikers.
But the history of Flamingo Camp Fire is by no means complete with this narrative. It seemed to be a peculiar lot of these girls to become associated or in touch with events of novel, interesting, and sometimes thrilling character, and those who would follow their further experiences along these lines should read the second volume of this series, entitled:
Camp fire girls in the country;
The Secret Aunt Hannah Forgot.
