Tbc Holiday
New Year's day was generally
observed as a holiday in the city
and was quietly spent. Sonic tried
cutter and sleigh driving bul the
snow was rather scarce to make
the going very good. A pond of
water ut. the 11. 0, K. H. station
Was sufficiently frozen to allow the
small hoy and many larger ones
to enjoy a skate and also a couple
of gallics of hockey. The ice on
the rivers and lakes was mil strong
enough to lie safe, else many would
have enjoyed a glide over thc glassy
surface. Private and public dances
iu the evening were tlio scenes ol

how many people are aware of the

known dye. lt is made from the dryod
female of the cochineal inserts (Coccus
cacti). Thoy aro gathered by brushing
the branches of tlio nopal cactus, on
which the Insects food na Boon as thoy
bogin to lay their oggs. Thoy are then
desiccated in ovens or killed with boiling wator. It has boon estimated that
ona pound of cochineal contains no fewer tuan 70,000 distinct insects. The
color is brought out and fixed by chlor*
iilo of tin. '1 hu Indians had cultivated
the Coccus cacti in pro Columbian days,

With the Horses
The tlrst trotting hurst* association
formed In Lexington was in the laiter
.*h'h, but was iu no way CODDOOtod with
the p: i.t association. The t'trst association broke up during the Civil
War leaving nothing tangible to found
an association on.
The prosonl Kentucky Trotting UoriO
Brooders1 Association wus formed August I. 1873, when a meeting for the
subscription of stock was hold in the
l'l nix Hotel. On August II a temporary organization was olVr-ctod by the
election of Thomas .T. Moglbhon, of
Cynthlnna, president; .lames M. I'ntler-
Hon, of Jessamine County- vlco-prosl*
dent; Col. P, lturgess Hunt, secretary;
and Henry T. Puncin, dr. (now Henry
T. Duncan, Hr,), treasurer. A little
later the permanent organisation wns
effected hy electing Thos. .1. Mctiibben,
president; John I). Wilgus, of Lexington, nnd Mr. L. Herr, of Lexingtnn, vice-
presidents; W. H* Wilson, then nf Lexington, but nfterwnrds of Cytithiimn.
secretary; Henry T. Duncan, Jr., treasurer,
The charter members of the nssocla*
tion were It. West, John R. Vilcy. Alex

Isaac Smith, William 1'reston, Levi

BOn, W. W. Smith', and II. T. Duucau.
This list contains the mimes of the
leading hoi'BOinon and lovers of tho
spurt of their dny and many of them
are still known wherever the trotter is
brod or raced. Nearly all of these men
have paused to tho grenl, heyond and
very lew of the numlier reiuuin.
One hurseiiiiin thoroughly conversant
with affairs of tho time says that tho
credit for the formation of tho association is due to Mr. William II, Wilson.
Mr. ..ilson wns an easterner, who came
to Kentucky anil first settled near Lexington but afterwards moved to Oyn*
thiaun and founded Abdullah Park
there. He wuh u believer iu Kentucky
as the best place in the world to breed
ami raise trotters and time has proven
hllll correct. Mr. Wilson brought.
OoorgC Wilkes and Honest Allen to
Kentucky. IL* bred Me.Kinney, 2:11
1-4. and owned many high-class horses
including Simmons, B!28, and others of
equal fame.
Mr. Wilson resigned as secretary, and
Cul. P, H. Hunt was selected to serve
in his stead. Col. Hunt was 11 true type
Oi tho old time South or ti goutlomun.
Although II Union ofllcor, he was woll
liked by everyone, even thuugh the
I'OdoralB around Lexington were con
sldorably iu the minority. Col. Hunt
is still living nml is uuw making his
homo in Texas. He served frum that
lime through the year 1ST", when he
r signed and Mr. Benjamin 0. Bruco
was selected tu till liis place. Mr.
ltrueo served us secrelary during the
years 1878, 1871), 1881, and 1882, boing
succeeded at that time hy Francis 8to
vciis, whu acted as BOCrotary in 1883
mul 1884.   The late Roberl 8. Steador,
filthor of the present It. S. Steader of
Lexington, Was the 11 OX I BOCl'Otary, Me
served one year, during 1885,    Bomnrd
T. Smith en icxt. ho also serving one
vein*, 1880, The ncxl man tn till the
position was Ed. A. Tipton. Mr. Tip
ton began his term In I^S7 and continued through 1807, serving a ful do-
cade. It was during his term ni ofti.-e
that the Transylvania, the Tennessee,
the Kentucky Futurity and some of the
other classics were first established.
Mr. Tipton resigned to become manager
of the late Marcus Daly's Hitter Root
Stock Farm, and his assistant, Horace
W. Wilson, was elected. Mr. Wilson
served from 1807 to 1001, inclusive,
when ho resigned to accept a similar
position with the Empire City Racing
Association of Xew Vork, and Elliot
\V, Shauklin was elected secretary. Mr.
Bhankllu served during the year 1902,
but died a few days before the opening of the liti):i meeting, when Mr. Wilson again assumed the duties, nnd he
lias continued up to the present time.
The only living ex-secretaries of the
association nre Messrs. Wilson, Tipton,
and Col. Hunt.
Tho first president, ns above noted,
wns T. fi. Moglbbon, who served from
1873 to 1888. He was succeeded by
W. H. Wilson, of Cyiithinna, who held
the position for two yeurs. He was
succeeded by Gen, 1*. P, Johnson, now
president of the National Trotting As
soclatlon. Gen. Johnson was succeeded
by Mr. Percy S. Titlhert. who was president one vear. lie wns succeeded
by Major ll! c. McDowell, for whom
the McDowell stake was named, Major
McDowell was tht* grandson of tho Immortal Henry Clay, and owned many
horses of note, including the great matron Etholwyn, 2:33, and lho equally
famous sire Dictator, from which mat*
IngS came a world's champion in Impetuous and other fast ones. Major
McDowell uold the position for a number of years, but resigned after the
meeting of 1800, and was succeeded by
Gen. Johnson, who served a second
term of four wars. 1807. 1808, 1890 and
1900. He wa's succeeded by It. P. Btoll,
who served In PJ-i and 1902, and who
was electol for the position again iu
1008, but whose death occurred In April.
1903. The next president was \\. R. C,
Estill, of Elmhlirsl Farm, the breeder
of Country Jay. Kontuckv Todd, etc.,
and the owner of titer dam, the Illustrious Pnronolla. Mr. Estill served
from  1908  to  1907 Inclusive      R. C
Btoll, son of It. P, StoH. was elected to
the place of honor in 1908 and served

Here is tho answer.
Whenever tho great powers havo nothing else to do they pick the poekot
of the Turk. One by one tbey havo

It is quite true tliat the interpretation of modern history is to bo sought

comes a man who crashes his way
through facts, as n bull goes through
a hedge. 0. Rohlfs was lhat kind of a
man. It was nut in my destiny to moot
bun at tho crossroads of life, but I like
to think of him as a large, hairy man,
full of wine and dreams nnd prophecy.

him by fate being Lebaudy, who proclaimed himself ''Emperor of tbo Sahara" and set out with -ships ami men
to claim his empire tif Band und salt.)
Italy rose to it, as a pickerel leaps to
the glitter of a silver spoon. Tripoli-
tan floclotles wero formed! there was
oven a Tripnlitun party in the Italian

you, Tripoli is the only point whence
the Sahara can be reached from the

There is no way of transit from the
Mediterranean to tho Sudan—no practicable route across tho Great Desert.
Modorn commerce cannot go on tho
back of a camel. The door of tho Sudan opens not on the Sahara, but on
tho Atlantic Ocean, on the Gulf of
Guinea, and on tho Rod Sea. Thither
tho great steamships go. And by the
great rivers—by the Senegal to the
west, by tho Niger to the middle, by

powers will send their goods to tho

What then does Italy want with the
Turkish  vilayet of Tripoli!
Two reasons urge her un: one is political and the other economic.

with alien powers. I lor sea bon id is

will give her Control of the Africo

land, fertile, and well watered, with
tall, green mountains-a fragment of
Europe rather than an edge of the Sahara. Greeks of old mado it u land of
wealth; ue Italians may easily do that
same thing. Even as it is, Tripoli, in
good years, foods Malta—including the
red coated English garrison, which consists of 7.i»t)il officers and men—sending
cattle and  sheep.
Italy, you see, not only wants Tripoli;
as woll she needs it. Without opening
the door of the Sudan—there need be
no further reference to gold dust and
ostriches—its possession will give hor a
tolerable market ami an excellent colony for her hangary southern Italians.
(The latest consular report which I
have at hand stales that In one year
Tripoli sent nearly -110,000,000 worth
of goods to Europe and to the On! tod
Mates. Ivory to the value of $8,000,-
0« > went to London, and as well caravan gold—brought across tlie desert-
worth over $415,000. About $6,000,*
nun worth of ostrich pinnies went to
Paris. New Vork got hides and pelts
to the value of $2^9.000).
The vilayet of Tripoli, then, Is well
worth taking away from the melancholy Turk.
Of course, the cost is to be counted.
I do not fancy it will be great, either
iu men or money. The cablegrams sent
to the daily papers state that the Bill-
tail has 30,000 troops iu the province.
This BOOms to me the wildest sort of
exaggeration, unless it ,.as rained asker

It is quite certain that sooner, or
later tne Italians will seize that fair
Turkish province which stretches from
the frontiers of Tunis to those of
Egypt. None of the great powers
wanted this International robbery to
take place just ut this moment. The
time has not yet come for dividing up
Turkey in Europe among Huns ami
Ivan and Pick Turpin and Cartouche.
It would lead to bitter fighting among

There nro too many (and too complicated) financial interests at stake. Ho.

AtWOOd, the aviator, reports that bis
expenses on his recent record-breaking

ivill hardly become a popular form of

the story: no one. so far as van be
ascertained, lias yet attempted to fly
heaply.    Says the Scientilic American:
"There is overy reason to believe

champions of tho air, nice for purses
holding thousands of dollars, no nlton-
liou will bo paid to ruduction of operating costs. When tho public has Wearied
of aviation meets (and there is evidence that in Europe at least tho cross

extracted all the notoriety they can by
offering huge sums for successful (lights,

bo tho exclusive property of aerial performers with itching palms."
Sending littio love messages or

An Innovation in Oil Heaters
The Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater, with its
drums enameled in turquoise, is an ornament to any
room, whether in the country cr city home.
No home is quite complete without a Perfection Oil
Heater. It is a necessity in the fall and spring, when it ts too
warm to start the regular heating apparatus, and too cool to be
without heat. In the midst of winter it is often convenient as
an auxiliary heater, as there are always some cold centers
in a house.
The enameled heater always presents a nice appearance, as the
enamel will not tarniih or burn o(f. It is nol an " enamel paint.'* but il
is thc same as the enamel of your cooking utens.ls.
The Perfection is the most reliable and convenient portable heafinij
device you can find. An automatically-locking flame spreader prevents
turning the wick high enough to smoke.

Bubbles are beginning to rise in
the municipal political pot as the
dates of nomination and election
draw near. Aldermen Waddington
and Jackson nre in the field for the
tirst honors of the city, and are
exercising their persuasive powers
on the voter with a view to securing
the position, Both men have served
ou the Board of 1011, and stand by
their records. Tbey arc well known
to the most of tbe electors and at
ibe public meeting on Monday evening will present their claims, and
a record nl their actions during the
year, as well as announce tbc line
of endeavor thoy intend to pursue if
accorded thc Mayor's chair. In view
of ibis tbc Free Press docs notdecm it
advisable to discuss the merits or
demerits of the candidates. Which
ever is elected wc hope to see him
stand for a fair deal toward every
citizen, to have a broad outlook, and
recognise and encourage everything
that will make for the advancement
nf the cily along permanent and
best advised lines. The elimination
of petty personal grudges, party
politics, and small village methods
of doing business, should be struck
out. Individuality of thought, and
action,earnest and thoughtful effort,
decorum and firm dignity witb due
respect to all citizens, should char-
actcrize the Council Board for 1(112.
Honest criticism should not be
spurned mid the one offering it
blacklisted, simply because of con*
trary opinion. Many men bave
many minds and it is only by a
thoughtful consideration of various
ideas that the best results are obtained, no single individual, or half
dozen, being vested with all wisdom
and judgment.
For Alderman we understand
that II. II. Gervan, of the present
Board, N. A. Webb, .lames O'Hearn
and E. C. Kekert arc iu the field.
The two latter are definite. Mr.
Kekert in presenting himself fnr
election gives the citizens the opportunity of electing a man wbo
will add strength, true progressive-
ness and real worth to the Board.
As a member Mr. Eekert would
be a painstaking and energetic representative. Mr. O'Hearn is a
citizen who is fully alive to the
needs of thc city and the
proper securing of these, antl would
we believe serve the best interests
of the citizens conscientiously. Mr.
Gervan, iu seeking re-election has
his record behind him, which
should commend him to due consideration in tbc selection of Aldermen for 1912, and which will no
doubt again elect him a memlier
of the Board. Mr. Webb is an
old citizen, known to all. anil like
Messrs. Kekert and O'Hearn has
his aldermanic record to make.
No doubt other names will be found
on tbe ballot paper on election day,
but no further announcements have
reached us. In voting each citizen
should vote only for the men who
in bis honest opinion and judgement, are best qualified to deal
with and handle the business of the
city. The present is an important
period in the growth and development of Chilliwaek and the best
men will be none too gootl to deal
with the problems which arc sure
to present themselves. Again, we
repeat, there should be absolutely
no party politics in local affairs, and
men should be chosen for tlieir true
worth and fitness, for the position,
totally regardless of tlieir politics,
creed or nationality. If this is
done we may look for civic government, which will lie a credit to the
city, and give the citizens cause to
feel grateful for the selection made,
.lust as we go to press we under,

Nelems are probable candidates for

from his l'p», i» l"1'1 '" Harper'i
Weekly for tlio Ilrst tltno, Hut to be
gin with, ho recounts:
Whon I became a soldier I was
twouty-ono yonra old, Eugono Mon
ciiobloa, moi. And I was enrolled in
tlio -01 li Infantry, and we wore seat tn
Alglors, but saw no war there.
1'lion caino tlio news of Ihe war with
Prussia, and wo flamed Willi oagernOBB,
We canted to moot and demolish tho
Prussians: "A Iiorlinl" was our cry.
We could not but go to war.
After a while wo worn talcon across
the sou to franco, and we weut by rail
toward the ao:th. and that wo could by
:oiy possibility bo beaten never canto to
us. "To Merlin!" was all we said. 11
was all wo thought. Wc shouted it
from tbo cars at tlio station, and the
nooplo shouted it back.
So toward tlio north, and wc nu longer
went by railroad, but wo uiurcliod. And
on I ho roads with us woro many thou-
sun.Is of other French soldiors, and
sometimes wo eoald see far across the
country to still more. Our hearts rose
higher! for we were ho many.
Kvery night we camped pleasantly,
and if we did not always have lull rations we always managod to nd onongh
not to kungor. Ves; we made It
onougk, and often thoro was tho kettle
nl soup and tho little salad that WO
made of what grew by the roadaldo.
And sometimes I would lie awake for
■i lime, and would porbaps hoar tho
l ramp of somo regiment passing by and
tlio pleasant jingle of accoutrements,
iiini it was Him whoa 1 could sue tlio signal-lights dashing with white and red
and blue.
1 would think of what news of the
Prussians tlioso lights might be telling.
And sometimes a picket lired, and Home
young .soldier would jump up and make
n nolso and his sergeant would growl
nl him.
From tho people in the villages wu
found that we were inarching toward
Met/. Humors of the lighting of great
battles came, anil tho ollicers tried t"
muke us believe our nrmloa had won.
Itut a chill came over us, for the rumors
.aid that wc had lost.
There  is news that CO s from  the
officers and there is news that comes
from the nir, and it came Irom tin: air
that WO had lost ii terrible buttle at
llravclnttc nnd other battles uruiind
There were iniiUeroigs, ami some 01
the mon suid: "Why, then, doea tho
F.mporor niiiko war if he knows not
how, and has not good gcueralst"
Hut we were only the more eager lo
-ct at the Prussians. We had been
losing*—well, if so, lot uh charge thmn
fiercely and win. A bus les l'russicns!
For thoy hail insulted ua.
The nicn, it sn », did not know they
were fighting all lierinaiiy, instead of
Prussia alone, and considered the cam
paign a holiday affair. 'Ihey had food
and driak, and took little thought tor
tlio morrow. Then they came within
sight of tho enemy:
Wc marched on, and one day, lar
off, we saw a glinting line of light, and
my comrades said: "The Prussians, Ku-
gene.     Those are their helmets."
And I said: "Wo will fight thoinj wo
will fight them with bayonet and with
chassopot, and with mitrailleuse/'
And he said: "Mon pnuvre Eugono,
von will have lighting of a sufficiency."
' And we began tu find out thai WO
Imil changed onr lino of march, and at
lust   it  went  among ns that  we    were
marching now inward Belgium and not
toward Mot/.
And I said to my comrade: "WO are
not nt war with Bolgtum, Why do we
net keep in front of the Prussians and
drive Ihem back.     Wo should light."
And he said: "Mon pnuvre Eugene,
you will huve lighting "f n sufficiency.

Then it wai thnl it Weill through the

of that picture, Imt were a little distance away. Wo took ll position on a
little rldgo and waited for thu   attack.
And I thought of nothing but that I
was ready to light for my country with
u gladness like that of a man whu goes
lo his home.
And tho Emporor Napoleon drove by
us, but it was boforo wo got to our position nt Bozoillos, His face was yellow and he looked sick, nnd from the
soldiers thoro was but littio of tho shout
of the iov. For many of us had begun to believe thai ho had led us into a
war in which there was no hope.
Wc thought that bo was not really In
power, tlio Emperor, and that It was
with us uh it was with Prussia. For in
Prussia thoy said it was not tho King
William, but Blsmnrck, and in France
we thought il was not (lie Emperor
Napnleon, but the Empress. Mui, I
do not kuow.     But at lasl we were to

I do not know just how long we

bouts; and although 1 had never Been
one, I knew it was a gray wolf. The
animal soomod terrified beyond measure by the splitting ico and tho storm,
for he kept casting fearful gluncos ut
the door, and showed no sign whatever
of wildiicss.
Ah the doctor had no other weapon
thnn his knife uud ll frozen fishing-
line, he wus in a quandary, But the
wolf seemed lonely und showed ll Htrong
desire to make himself ut homo, hu they
naturally decided to let it go at that,
and spout the night quite charmingly
togcthor. The next morning—to hour
what thc doctor says:
I awoke to Hml the sun up, Ihe day
bright and clear, and the laud four or
live miles wesl nf us. All around Hooted cukes of ice, going Hie name way as
oursolvos ia the grip of somo current.
My fours passed away wilh tlio bright
sunlight, an.l I used up my last wood
in cooking some Hsk fur Ihe wnll', while
I finished the linskcl of provisions,
So  Ihe  wolf and   I   went   out   in  Hie

be, Iwo hours later I saw a did moving
among the ice. and as il neureil saw
lhal it was a fish-bout, doubtless with
a rescue party on board. And now
came the most surprizing pail of iny
The bunt was about half a mile dis
taut, and Hu' occupants, having soon me
and waved lu mo, started lo make their
way thruugh thc Hooting ice. I saw
the wolf watching thom with bristling
hair, and suddenly he turned to me
with a low growl. ' I offered him a bit
of fish, but he took no notice, nnd I

rescue ould not include his. At any
rate, ho drew buck a few Bteps, his
eyes fixed on mine; then, with a quick
movement, he sprang at me
I had no weapon, except a short
knife whicli was closed. All I could
dn was tn jump aside, hitting hint witli
my fist as lie missed me—aa eld boxing trick. Hut 1 hnd nut counted ou
thai savage side slash of the great

..and was streaming witli blood froni a
small gash. I heard shoots from thc
approaching lish boat, but as the party
was unarmed they eould lint help me.
Immediately upon getting liis balance on the snow the wolf came toward
me slowly and sprang again. This
time I was really frightened, and, with
wild idea uf holding him away till
.' friends coal.I assist me, 1 met him
half-way, grasped his threat in both
hands, and we both fell to the snow to
getlicr, for the impact of his leap was
tremendous. I hung on to his throat,
but, although 1 kept thc gleaming teeth
oil'. I could not hold his feet. ilo
struck at mo savagely with his hind
paws, tlie sharp claws tearing through
my coat like knives, and 1 realized my
danger just in time to cast myself backward. Instantly the wolf returned to
the attack, and this time the look in
his fnee frightened uie so that 1 did
not wait for him. I whipped my coat
awuy nnd threw il in his face; then
turned and. running to the side of the
ice-cake, leaped into the water
1 um u good swimmer, and the bout
was only a hundred feet distant, so iu
uo time I wus aboard and getting into
warm ciotaes. The engine was stopped, and wc Iny there watching the
wolf. He seomed puzzled ut my disappearance, running baekfvnrd and forward on the ice; then he looked at the
boat und howled dismally, None of
the men liked to attack him with
knives for their only weapons, ami so
presently the boat was turned ubout
and we threaded our wuy out from the
ice to the free wuter. lleliiuil us the

The   exislem f   globular   lightning
was until recently sonously doubted by
uthorities on electricity. Its behavior,
s reported, seemed so at variance wilh
11 the properties of electricity us tilth
ilo known an.l understood, that they
preferred to believe that the observer's
did not report correctly what Ihey saw.
.Now. however, the existence of this
form id' electrical discharge seems alum
dantly  proved, and  something like it
has even  b   produced  iu the Inborn
lory. The latest word uu the subject
appears to be aa Investigation by W.
M. Thornton, in which he shows' that
very pruoablv the luminous, slow mov
ing sphere- called ball or globe light
nlng are nothing but electrified masses
of ozone, produced by the passage of
a previous ilfHcharge through atmos
pheric oxygen. Says a writer in Cos
mos (Paris, August 12),
"The way in which they move
through the air makes it clear that
these globular lightnings are composed
of a gas heavier than nir. Now, ozone
is the only gus denser than air thut is
produced in abundance under the ac
lion of explosive electric dischurges.
Oa the other hand, it is allinned that
the dispersion nl globular lightning
gives rise to the production of ozone
Ou reaching ihe ground, globular light
ning frequently undergoes a devlatinn,
as under ihe influence of a repulsion;
now the -uil.ice of the eurth ami ozone
aie gun era Ily charged negatively.
"Ihe energy freed in the conversion
of n corresponding volume of ozone into
oxygen would suffice lo explain the
explosive violence with which these
meteors burst. Finally, the blue color
is characteristic of tlie spnrkless dec
trie discharges whieh in tlieir passage
through the air give rise to ozone. It is
also observed in ihe explosive combine

hitherto it has been impossible to make

Tho camera has played its part, in
the catching of many criminals, but
never more dramatically than in the
case of Guy Fox, an escaped thief and
bad mun from a littio bolder town in
Texas. An amateur photographer
named (Juniniaek wus oil' on the oltl
buffalo trail which crosses a spur of
tho Cimarron mountains and juts oil'
into New Mexico. Mo was all alone,
had been told that ho would probably
be all alone to thu end of the hills, und
was feeling rather devilish in his way,
when lie came noiselessly into nu opening In young growth nnd gave a sudden
Hturt,—surprised nnd disappointed,
His l'alysiun wihlness wus occupied by
campers! A now white tent nnd an old
irayed one, pitched on the bank of tlu*
brook, showed in ugly contrast against,
a fringe of green. Two persons were
in sight, a half breed Mexican woman,
bending over a camp kettle, and a white
mnn, lounging in u light hammock.
The mnn got. to bis feet as Cummack
approached aud stood iu a careless altitude, with his hands locked behind
him. He wus a slender person of mid

porsons packing for a move.
The hall bleed woman und a mun of
her kind were swiftly cinching packs
upon two ponies, while tho while man
stood, apparently giving occasional directions. Three saddled animals stood
near at hand.
lu live minutes the packing had been
completed, and the trio, mounted, pushed into thc bushes, following upon the
trail Cummack hud just traversed.
The camera-hunter rode on. What
did that hasty camp-break mean? Was
the white fellow a criminal—a, "hide

camper had stood with his hands behind him; he had been armed, nnd, iu
spite of his apparent equanimity, he
hail been thoroughly alarmed at the
appoarance of a stranger, and had beeu
ready to shoot promptly in his own do
Suddenly Fummack conceived the
idea of playing the role of a detective
and of dispatching a photo of the man
to the proper authorities. Could ho
nope  In  do  this?    And   how?
Much excited, ho determined to make
the attempt. Scanning the rutted
banks of the trail for a suitable place
to set his camera, he rode onward rap
Idly for a quarter of a mile or more,
until at length be came to a turn in
the path that was ideally suited to his
purpose. Riding beyond it a little way
and tying liis horse to a bush, lie returned.
Setting his extended camera with the
gray eye of its lens cunningly hidden
among weeds and small bush, nud laying
a gray spider thread of silk ac/oss the
trail at just tho right spot, took him
mora ml nates than he expected.
He had hardly finished his work ami
got to his feet before he heard the
muffled clatter of horses' feet. Already the campers were so near thut
lie could not hope, to ride nway undis
Stooping low and running quickly to
his hor.-e, ho untied the animal aim led
it out among the high bushes of a lower
•dope. Fifty or sixty yards from the
trail he halted, grasped the uiuz/.tc of
Ins horse in both hands to keep it from
neighing, uud  listened breathlessly.
The cavalcade was coining at a
round trot, uud presently he hoard the
woman's voice, urging on Ihe packaui-
Dials. Good—Sho nnd the ponies were
in the ear! No danger that any of
them, tmvelling at that rate, would dis-
over the camera.
In a moment ho knew that the string
of ponies had all passed his camera trap,
and he felt the thrill of exultant hope.
Tho sun was shining brightly, and beyond question if the white man wns iu
front, he hud left a picture of himself
on the film.
At this minute Cummack '*. hired pony
wrenched its muzzle free of his clench
ed lingers nnd let nut a shrill, inquiring whinny.
Instantly the riders on the path halt -
ed. and there followed a moment of
dubious silence. Knowing that any
further uttempt nt concealment would
bo use'eM, the photographer determined
to   invito  discovery.      Ho  leapt   into

his saddle and rode obliquely to tho
trail, us if casually passing through
the bushes.
Cummack hoard nothing more of the
travellers until he reached the trail,
which ho struck while going ut a trot.
Then a clatter of hoofs at his heels
told him that he was closely pursued.
Neil her reining iu nor urging his animal
forward, the camora-huutor turned in
his saddle to see u swurthy Mexican,
with swinging Data, nlmost upon him.
'Ihe man hud quietly kept even pace
with him as ho traversed the bushes,
ami before he could realize liis danger,
he felt a deftly flung noose settle over
his shoulders. lie wns jerked' violently out of his saddlo and struck tho
hard path nu his head and shoulders.
For the moment the breath was
knocked out of him, Whon ho cume to
himself his hands were tied under his
buck, Guy Pox wus sitting on his chest,
and the half breed was busily tying his
log* with the same, braided rawhide
Mint had brought hint to earth.
It was too late lo struggle, and his
angry remonstrances wero unheeded.
At length, after he hnd been tightly
tied, Cummack was left, "to wait for
the return of his mutes.''
In vultl Ctliumack shouted lifter the
mnn that ho had uo mutes. hi flvd
minutes all sounds of the cnvalcu.h, to
which his own horse hud lieen added,
nud censed, ami tho luckless camera-
hunter was left to his reflections,
Thoro was no more comfort, iu them
than there was in his position. lie
lay mi his back in a wide rut of the
trail, and the plaited ruwhldo, which
pinioned his wiists, hud been knotted
about his body and again nboul his
thighs, knees, uud ukles. Strain us he
might, he could move his body only
slightly by rolling his shoulders. Thus
he was compelled to lie as ho hud been
left; that is, with the weight of his
body hugely resting upon his arms.
His only hope of rescue luy iu the
pitifully s cudcr chance that some hunt-
tor or prospector should como within
call during the limited time that he
could survive.
At intervals Cummaek raised a halloo,
as loud uud long ns his crumped lungs
would permit. In the meantime a
blazing midday suu added to his sufferings.
After two or three hours, und as if iu
answer to his shouts, a near-by rustle of
leaves and grass told lum of the approach of soaie creature. Eagerly he
Sifted his head to look in the direction
of the sounds. Not twenty yards away
ho saw the pointed ears uml inquiring
snout of a mountain coyote, which hud
halted at the edge of the trail to peer
at him. He shouted nt the beast,
whieh shrank back among the grass
and weeds, but he listened in vain for
sound of its retreat.
Had the distress in his voice betrayed him? Did the creature understand
something of his helplessness?
Ho had little to four from a timid
coyote while he could make a movement or lift his voice, but he hnd frequently seen among those mountains the
tracks of bigger wolves—beasts that
would not long hesitate to attack a man
in   his condition.
His horror wns so keen that he did
not agaiu raise even it feeble baloo.
Home time later further slight noises
among the bushes told him of the arrival of the coyote's mute. As the pair
snt upon their haunches some rods
away, their pricked ears showed above
the weeds. The beasts were patiently
biding their time,
Cummnck was now suffering so much
from thirst, pain, and heat tliat nil his
veins seemed about to burst. In thi--
nwful misery he ceased to care huw soon
tho end might come. Toward mid-
utter noon he fell into a stupor, from
which doubtless he could never have
