While the yachts were manoeuv-  ering for the start a squall came  without the slightest warning, and  the bowsprit of the challenger was  carried away short, The extra  strain thus thrown on the main  'op mast proved too much for the  spar, it broke and������������������duublid off to  leeward, carrying the who^e weight  of the jackyard and the gear over  the side in a terrible tangle. Almost as the topmast fell the great  steel mainmast, weighing over, two  tons, swayed a moment,  and  then  by great good fortune, plunged over.  .1  24th CE^.Ji.B.TiATION'.

That meant  a'gallop of 30 miles.' It was straight  away down the stage road for ,teu  miles, then across scrub and plain for  ���������''five more to hit the natural curiosity  called the Devil's basin.  "Not an Indian has'been seen ihis  side of the range for 'four months."  said the captain as he talked over the  proposed ride with the colonel! "and  the trip is perfectly safe. I will detail  .an escort from my own company,'but  it will be only for appearance's sake."  "Yes, it will be safe, and  May will  enjoy the gallop," said the colonel, and  '  no more was said about it.  At sunrise all were ready to set-forth.  As the girl stood on the veranda waiting" for her horse six of the men of A  ��������� troop came.riding up under command  of .Corporal Haynes.    They halted' 30  ' feet away, and asshe looked them over  ��������� she gave a start of surprise, and a flush  overspread   her  face.     Next   moment  ,'hercheeks went white, and she gasped  as if1, choked  for breath.    The corporal's hand slowly lifted, and rhis .head  was uncovered for an instant, andr Private   Harkins   whispered ( to   Private  O'Brien:  "And   did   ye   see - that,   Jim?     By  emoke.   but  if  our  corporal  ahd   the  .colonel's daughter haven't' met before  then I don't know.a jack rabbit from a  .long drink of whisky!"  <,    "But how can it be?" askted O'Brien.  ��������� "How can the grass grow, ye thick  head?   Don't we call Haynes the 'Gen-  '" tleman .Corporal?'    Isn't it agreed  in  Troop A that be has. the education and  manners   of   any   officer, from    West  Point and that he's seen the day whlen  7 he trained with the tiptoppers?"  "And they may have loved?" mused  O'Brien.   ��������� '   "  "That's it, .but it's all over now, me  boy. If me own sister was married to  the second lootenant, I'd not dare to as  much as wink me eye at her.. It's a  r big gulf 'twixt officer and man, and if  the man tries to bridge it he gets dropped to the bottom. See the girl walking'to and fro? She's doing some thinking, and don't ye forget it." ,  "And the corporal isn't *a bit. easy in  his mind," added the other.  It all took place in a minute, and;  then Captain Cline ,rode up, followed  by the1 girl's horse. She called out a  good morning and announced that she  was ready, and when the captain rallied hereon being a bit nervous sire  forced a laugh and charged him with  being four long minutes behind the  hour agreed.v As she was lifted .into  the saddle she caught one more glance  of the corporal, and the watchful Private Harkins again whispered to his  chum:  "Jim, 'we've got a mystery here or  I'm an old woman. The girl is flushing  ���������ag'in.   Who knows but what we may  have a marriage between our 'Gentleman Corporal' and the colonel's daughter?"  "Remember     the     gulf!"     growled  O'Brien..  "I'd find a way to fly over it if I was  In love."  The two riders went galloping away,  followed at a distance of 100 yards by  the escort.   It was a beautiful morning-  In summer, with the blue haze lying  thick over the distant mountains and  an exhilaration in the air to make the  blood  of  both  horse and  man   tingle.'  Now and then the pace was slackened  down a bit1 to breathe the horses, but  no  halt  was  made   until   the   Devil's  basin was reached.    Close 'up against  the base of Fife mountain was a natural dip, and in this dip, or basin/were  half    a    dozeft    spouting    hot    water  springs.     There   was   also  a   circular  lake which steamed and bubbled, and  now and then from the crevices of the  rocks at  the  west,  end  of the   basin  steam was forced out, with the notes  of a fog  horn.    The escort halted 40  yards from the riders, and the men sat  about on the rocks and ate the breakfast they had brought with them and  smoked their pipes and gossiped. Meanwhile Corporal Haynes climbed to the  top of a great bowlder and surveyed  the country about with his keen eyes.  7 It' was three-quarters of an hour before he  suddenly  started  and   looked  fixedly into the north beyond the basin  and after three or four minutes came  sliding down the rock and said to the  lounging troopers:  "Men, see to your arms and lie close.  I'm going up to report to the captain."  Captain Cline and tlie colonel's  daughter .were breakfasting on a fiat  topped rock overlooking the basin,  while their horses were fastened to a  tree near by. They saw Corporal  Haynes approaching, and the captain  likewise noticed that the girl flushed  and became nervous. He was a single  man, and, though not exactly in love  with her, a spark of jealousy blazed up  in his heart. The corporal's past was  a sealed book to his troop commander  as well as his comrades. He had been  made a corporal because of his attention to duty, iiis soldierly carriage and  the moral influence an educated  man  always exerts, and the captain had  been rather proud of his "Gentleman  Corporal." In a flash it came to hiro  that, this soldier and' the colonel's  daughter might have 'been something  to each other in the past, and the  thought angered him., ,-  "Did I call you?" he harshly asked  as the corporal came to a halt and saluted. > <  "No,v' sir," was the reply, "but I  thought it best to tell you that I hav  made out Indians 'beyond the basin to  the north."       , r ' -  "It's  all   nonsense.     Not  an , India*  has been seen hereabouts far montka."  -   "But   there   are   . Indians    skulking  about, sir," persisted the corporal.    "I  made sure of it before I came to. you."  "Go back to your men!" was the sullen .reply. ' ,. "  The corporal had looked straight at  his officer and. seemed unaware of the  presence of the girl. She was flushing  and paling alternately, and as he stood  thero twirling the, cap he had doffed  in silent recognition she protested: , ���������  ."But, captain, if there are Indians,  there is danger. If this���������this soldier  saw Indians"���������      - -  '���������' ,  "Didn't you hear me?" shouted the  captain at the lingering corporal."  The corporal saluted, turned on, his  heel and. returned to his men. The  gulf -between officer and man ��������� did not  permit him to explain in the face of  that blunt command, but when he had  reached the troopers he quietly said:  "Men. I have been up. to the captain  to report that there is a band of at  least 50 Indians skulking down this  way from Red Bird pass. They have  seen us and are after us. The captain  doesn't believe- me, and you will get  ready far a' fight.r' They'll be here  vwithin half an hour. Softly now. Just'  overhaul your carbines and cartridges  and make no display to frighten the  girl. I^he reds have_,got to flank the  basin on this side, and they will have  to strike us first. We've "got good cov-  ,er, and we 'can stand 'em off for the  day."  "But when* night comes?" asked one  of the men, though without a tremor  in his tones. ���������  "Get quietly ready," was the reply.  Meanwhile there  was an  argument  - between the captain and the colonel's  daughter.     He  sought  to  assure  her  that nothing had been seen and that  there was not the slightestdanger; but,  to-his annoyance, <she persisted in believing , that    there    must    be    good  grounds for the corporal's report.  This  annoyance   made" him  delay,' matters,''  and .nearly half an  hour had passed  <and   it   was   very   much   against -the  grain when he shouted for the soldier  to approach and sneeringly asked :*  "Well, corporal,  isn't it' about time  your Indians showed up?"  "We  shall  hear  from   them   in   ten  i minutes," was the reply.  "And they will have rabbits' ears on  their heads. You have sticks in your  eyes.".  ou.    .��������������������������� ���������.���������. si- mil' uuissea xne reports  of the carbines, and the sound of foot-  ' steps echoed in her ears.  , "Come!" said the corporal as be lifted  her up.  "Oh. Robert, and have you' beaten  them off?" she exclaimed.  "No; my'men are all dead, and the  Indians will rush us in a minute."  "And we���������we"��������� ' ,  ,  He put'his arm around her waist and  assisted her,to the rock on which were  the remains rof< her breakfast. The  steaming." heaving, mysterious lake  was 30 feet beneath them.  "'Better this than'that."'he said as  he pointed from the lake to a score of  Indians advancing.

"I'll break you for this the  minute we get back!"  ' The corporal turned his gaze on the  girl for a few fleeting seconds. There  were anger, entreaty, love and humiliation in his eyes, while he was pale to  the lips. For a second he seemed about  to speak; then his head and shoulders  dropped in a helpless way, and he saluted his officer and retired.  "Oh, Captain Cline, what makes you  so harsh with him?" cried the girl as  the soldier turned away. "If danger  did not menace us, Robert wouldn't"���������  "And so you two have met before?"  he asked as she checked herself.  She had risen to her feet, and there  were tears in her eyes.. She might  have replied, but at that minute three  rifle shots followed each other in quick  succession, and the officer, who was  just rising, received a bullet in his  shoulder and sank down again.  "Bang. bang, hang!" went the carbines of the troopers, and the corporal  came running up the hill to seize and  drag his officer under shelter and to  say to the girl:  "You must crouch down here and remain quiet. They can't get at you till  they have killed the last ono of us."  "Aud is it Indians?" asked Captain  Cline as he tried to sit up.  "Fully 50 of 'em, sir, and our escape  Is cut off.    What are the orders?"  "If you'd been keeping a lookout,  this could not have happened!" growled the captain between his teeth. "I'll  have you court martialed if we ever  get back. .Get back to your post!"  There was cover for the skulking  Indians to within a stone's throw of the  bowlders, and it wasn't ten minutes  before two of the troopers were killed.  After the first shock of pain the captain made his way down to the men,  but there were no orders to give. Every horse had been.; killed as he stood  by that time, and a. third trooper had  been mortally wounded. The dullest  soldier could have told that there was  no escape. In his rage and pain the  captain cursed loud and deep, and  there were curses on his lips as he half  rose to shift.his position, and a bullet  reached his heart. Crouching behind a  bowlder and peering out now and then  with staring eyes, and again covering  her face with her hands and rocking  her body to and fro, the colonel's  daughter gasped and sobbed and waii>  tllaky Pe'rforinnnce of HorsemanihlD  on an Anatrnliun Mountain.

He rode the  hunter Wallace and had a run of 24  feet on a macadamized road to a three  railed fence o-f a height of 4 feet 3  inches, with a gutter on the take off  side. The ground available on the  landing side was 10 feet; then there  was a precipitous fall to the lake he-  low of about 250 feet. The horse stopped in a stride on landing amid the  greatest excitement. The slightest  mistake on the part of the horse or  rider would have led to serious injury,  if not to certain death.

They were nice,girls,  mostly in their first year's course, and  their lips wouldtwitch and.their, faces  whiten   very  often/ in   the  operating  room .or. when they ,held a patient's  vhand. while he died in the night.    But  thej^ were brave and .went about the  pretty -hospital, singing * softly  in" the  cool ,p corridors, 'carrying (little7' white  -clothed trays to the sickrooms "and be:  ing the best of medicines themselves  by(_ reason    of ' their   neatness, .their  bright eyes and their kind voices.  ��������� Now, one beautiful bright spring afternoon at the railroad, junction in' the  town two trains 'filled  with' pleasure  seekers smashed .together, and the doctors and ' the matron-and the'nurses  were plunged into a world of work, for  ambulance after, ambulance came driv-  ing'upl from-the. scene of the accident  and left to the care of thegirls^many  people sorely hurt - And' among them  was-a very little boy about 6 years'old  whom nobody knew anything about b*-  causehis father and mother were both  killed In the collision, and" there was  nothing on. them to show who or what  they were except that they were very  poor.   It is comprehensible that a very  great deal of,attention was paid to this  little fellow, and he would have been  placed  in the women's'ward, as  the  hospital /was too small for a children's  ���������ward,.but.the women's ward was full.  So the. boy,'quite insensible, was'laid  on a cot in the men's ward/and next to  him was laid, a big brown-bearded man,  also   insensible,'."from   whose 'clothes  had been gathered quite asum of money and whose few papers went to show  he.had been a sailor.   He was a-v������ry  rough looking man indeed.  The man came to his senses first, and.  It was night. The nurse on watch was  quite frightened at the man. He was  In pain, and great allowance must be'  made for that, but nover in all her life  had the little nurse to, listen to such  words as came from the big brown  bearded man's lips. He wanted to get  up and go right away,' but he found he  could not move his great massive legs.  So he began to abuse his fate and the  railway and the hospital and the nurse  and mankind in general. He was a-  very biiter mouthed man indeed. The  littie nurse by the light of the night  lamp did her best to soothe him because he roused other patients, and  there was a terrible groaning and wailing in the small ward. And all at once  the little boy came to his senses, too,  just for. a minute, and his face was  turned to the sailor's face, and his eyes  fell upon the sailor's eyes. He was not  quite sensible yet, for it seemed he mistook the sailor for his dead papa, and  he said very prettily:  "Good morning, dad.   How are you  "this morning?"  The sailor, looking into the little fellow's eyes, was abashed and stopped  his swearing and was silent for a moment and then muttered clumsily:  "I'm all right."  "That's nice," said the boy and became unconscious again.  The  sailor  did  not  abuse anything  any more just then, but lay groaning,  and evcrj' now and again when the little nurpe slipped by in the shadows he  called to her softly, and the first time  he said:  "Pretty little chap."  The nurse nodded and smiled, and  the sailor smiled back, and until morning came at last he only groaned and  watched the child and did not curse at;  all, but every time the nurse came to  wipe his brow or give him a drink he  whispered to her to look at the boy.   .'  "Pretty boy!   He thought I was his  dad," he said and would have laughed  only his pain made him groan instead.  Again hei caught the nurse's hand.  "Said it was nice, he did. Cute, ain't  he?" And then his face -twisted in  pain.  But neither could the sailor rise  from his backhand neither could the  sailor hope to.sail.the sea again, for he  was in the same case with the child,  and both were slowly dying. At first  sometimes the big brown man would  foi'get himself in his pain, and the  nurses would shut their ears, terrified,  and the matron would threaten to  move him to a room by himself, and  that frightened him to silence, for ever  since the accident he had a great love  C-  '..���������v,1  4\i  i\  '���������73  ���������I  '.Vw  /  - (1  ror tne cnnci.

Out of the shadow of all uncertainty  Elizabeth's   heart came   the next  even-  ���������    ing, when'she heard that an accident had  happened,at the Eagle Bill   mine,   and  that by 'the breaking of a chain on .in  ore  bucket that was used toMower the  miners into    the drift,   Valleyfield    and  -   one of his miners  had  boon   seriously,  perhaps fatally,  hurt.    Coin<-ideut with  the  sudden 'grief  and  fear   that seized  her immediately upon receipt of,this information came the" clear, unmistakable  revelation   that   she' loved" this     man.  les, loved  him with   her  whole , soul-  loved' him   as  she could   never  love on  ' earth  again.    Noav she  knew why the  sweetness of his act in so gallantly Iift-r  ing   her   over   the   stream    lingered   so  long with her, for it was the first awak-'  ening of her> virgin  passion.     Now she.  understood   why   the; days  had   seemed  ���������so  undescribabljr  bright' when   she  had  '   ivandcred  through the "valleys at even-  ,  tide with him at her side. Yes, she saw  '���������it all now, and' the consciousness of it  sill   thrilled her anew iu the light of her  broad   knowledge   of' its . cause.      Her  duty  now was  clear:1 ''She must go to,  lii'm at once, if he was in danger.  She sought out the-, doctor, aud 'ex-G  "plained to 'him that- inasmuch as Mr.'  Valleyfield had been so"kind to her wh-.-n  Iier bronco had played tricks upon hor  that she would now return his kindness  if cthe doctor wished a nurse.,, for the  cmanagor of the Eagle Bill, and his injured miner.  "I don't know how badly they're hurt,"  'said Dr. Spense. "but the service you  have;offered is "just what I have been  ��������� :ibou't praying for," and (hey Jurnod  their' footsteps' in ' the 'direction of the  Eagle Bill claim, the doctor explaining"  1hat the shock to both duul been so severe, that he had ordered temporary  "���������conches to , be constructed for thera  sight in -the mine instead of having  them removed to  their quarters.  Elizabeth was  surpMod   at  the   forti-  ' *ed   condition  of   this   mine   when ,-ihe  'fame in view of it.    Temporary fences  liad  been   built   around'the  entrance to  , conceal  the mouth   of.ofhe   ,,,ine. rwhn-h,  * -was at' the side of a small hill-.'and moveable barricades, -were in  o'vidriK-"   inwM"  ���������the   fences.     Dynamite   was- stored   in ,  vats near and beyond the grouud opening,  and these vats ,were   all connected  by   wire  to, a galvanic? battery  hidden  far . in   the' ' mine.     Moveable     padded,  screens, with Winchester holes in them,  were  scattered  here; and  there,   behind  ���������which any  one    man    with   a   breach-  loader would be a formidable defender.  Elizabeth  was surprised,   however,  still  more at the few miners present���������seven,  all told, counting tho manager, and the  Jimuor that had been hurt.    She  afterwards    learned   that    the    Eagle   Bill's  staff  had  originally numbered   thirteen,  ^exclusive of the manager, and that the  six   remaining   were     those     who   had  .proven  their  ability  to withstand   God-  iroy's bribing  characteristics.  The five now on guard were thoroughly armed and a dozen eztra "Winchesters  with the necessary ammunition for a  ^prolonged siege stood in readiness for  ^use. Evidently the workers in the Eagle  Bill were expecting jumpers of an extraordinary kind.  Valleyfield had not recovered consciousness yet. but the doctor could find no  ���������broken bones. Elizabeth nursed him  ���������through the night, and on thet morrow  -���������consciousness returned and he was  ������������������manifestly better.  ' Valleyfield could see at once that th-;re  was a change in this girl, and that a  r-cw shy dignity line* come 'to her that  made her even,-more fascinating than  tefore.  "'Oh! why did you come here?" he  .-asked of hor, as soon as he had recovered sufficiently to   be able to talk.  "How can you a^k?" she made reply,  ���������reproachfully. "Did you not take care  of mc when I was ill?'"  He lay back in his chuir again, without further words, as if her vigorous  logic was. too much for him in hi.s weak  state  Suddenly the fear  came to Elizabeth  that he did not return her love, that he  did   not  even   like   her.     This  self-suggestion   tore  her. heart   for   an   instant  with one cruel pang,  and  then left her  ���������white a!nd helpless.   To whom could she  .turn in her despair.    Oh, if her father  were  only   here  that she  might  throw  vherself into his arms and tell him  all.  Then   came   the   fixed   desire   to   go   at;  once to him. to turn to the only one' she  (���������had on earth to look to for sympathy.  He   would   soothe  her   in   her   distress  and   know  what  was   best to  be done  about  the mine.    She   wcut over to  a  ��������� bench  and  began to  put  on  her outer  ���������clothing'. .  "Since you are now better, and do  ���������not want me any more, I will go at  once," she said, as she put on-her cloak,  and there was a new dignified pride in  her voice that smote Valleyfield to the  core. "I am afraid it must also be  good-bye now, for. I go home to-morrow." .  She turned towards the mine door,  ���������witliout offering him her hand, grief and  .pride   fighting   for  the  mastery   of  her  heart. .  Valleyfield did not offer to detain her.  His face seemed suddenly to be drawn  -with a great pain which left him ghastly  .and still, but he suffered her to pass out  or   me  ruue uoor,   ana  away iroin  uie  mine.  . She went over to Elsie's and informed  them there of her determination to return home the  next, morning.  "Land sakes,'? said Elsie, "it's what  .you should have' done days ago. "We  like you here, Lizabeth, but pa says it  does beat jack rabits you going over to  the enemy right after you came here,  and he'll feel relieved now . you're  going." i ��������� ,.  Elizabeth slept little that night, and  walked over to Darcie'-s in the early  morning light. Arriving there she found������  she had "a wait of an hour before  the rig that, was honored by die  name of stage would start for the station. ' "���������  The little waiting room into which  she was conducted was only separated  'from the bar-room.by a thin'partition,  and she could hear quite plainly tbe  -voices of those who 'were .drinking at  the bar. She was about to .leave this  room and go outside, when she heard  the voice of one of Godfrey's''miners  and what lie was saying arrested her attention in spite of herself.  ''Has the,gatliug come, Bill?" he inquired of the bartender,*1 who, as we  before stated, was also the mail clerk.  ".You bet," was the reply., "She came  last night, and she's a dandy." i   <  "I. suppose there'll'be a hot time, in  our town to-night, and the Eagle Bill  won't be in the dancin' afterwards,"  sa;d the miner. -' j ,,  "Hardly," said the barkeeper. "But  I'm kind ot sorry for that coon Valley  field."   , ���������    l  ."I ain't. He's'too'darned stuck up.  He needs a little demonstration to teach  him horse sense." ,Then, after a sound  as if they were' drinking.'"Godfrey ��������� ������?-,  fered him'square. It's darned tough if  the pav ore from that new lode has  to be blown in in Switzerland "or some  other country instead of right here in  this part of the blessed republic. T ain't  a darned bit sorry for the mule. Let  him now take his- medicine." -  . "You're talkin' by7the book." replied'  the mixer of drinks: - "Still,'darned mv  hide, if A- ain't kind of sorry for the  coon. Any1 man ' Godfrey gets after  ain't in no land o' promise., I'll bet. I  suppose there"- no darned help now for  the' Eagle   Bill?'"  "Not so -much as a man with a bobtail'flush, after he's ,been called. Say.'  Bill, I don't like this last moonshine  'joii're slinging.' It burns my-gullet.  Give me , a nip of ^that A old '��������� , juniper  berry." .Then followed renewed sounds  of drinking) and some .blushing. ,and  above the-clink of glasses being washed  the barkeeper further queried:       ���������     <.  "What" has old Godfrey got-besides  the G'atling gun?" v        '     - a ^   ���������  "Fifty Winchesters and a posse of  old jumpers from lArizpny. ������������������ Godfrey  wanted to do the juinpii)".' while his' nibs  was sick.-   All's fair-in  love or .war to  Godfrey  Ar-izony  but  'the"*"boys    from  didn't come over till" late lust night.*'^  "I suppose there's no darned help .for  it then, but a scrap, injunction or' no injunction; and you think that dude has  no chance?" still further queried ihe  bartender.  "Chance?" lausrhed the other. "Why,  Godfrey's got a force, that with hi<  Gatlii'g, could, raid a fort." But he'll  never need il. There's only seven in tho  Eagle Bill, and they ain't got no sand  but the coon. He'll be killed the first-  lire, ,foi- he'll fiffht tin front of his men.  Chance! To-morrow at tins time the  undertakers will .be busy and Godfrey '11 have the Eagle Bill as tijrht as  h 1!"  "Still. I'm darned sorry for the kid." te-  peated the disciple of Bacchus, as if he  could, not get rid of a feeling that jarred  on his coarser make up. "I suppose  this will not be the first time Godfrey's  done the jumping act in tho face of the,  law. and was not bothered afterwards?"  "Naw,",laughed the lover of the old  juniper berry. "He jumped Ihe "Great  Cipher' in Wyoming, though there was  a court officer *m guard there, last year;  and held hot ever since. The owner  was killed in the 'spree.' aud every one  sent out to 'vistigate just took three  or four thousand dollars of Godfrey's  chips and left without troublesome questions being a.sked, but all reported that  Godfrey was in the right. When this  chap Valleyfield. or whatever you call  him, turns up his toes, who'll ever come  out here to see about matters that Godfrey can't fix. "\\*)y. after paying i?U  the expense of jumping the 'Givat  Cipher," Godfrey took out over half a  million dollars of pay ore before the  horse-neck lode played out."  "Godfrey's a terror," weekly admitted  the bartender. "Still, 1 am darned  sorry lor that tenderfoot. lie s-eems too  darned good to be a cinch l'or Godfrey."  Here others came in and drinking became .general.  Elizabeth rose up and went out. How  dark everything seemed. "What a  strange change had come over everything. The hot Winds whirled up from  the valleys and catching, the loose boards  on the rookery before her, made them  rattle as if in pain. The trees seemed  sad on the silent hills beyond the canyons, and the wild flowers in the passes  were too far away to "be seen. The  great river, whose.passion only came in  spring and autumn,flowed on as if brooding over a voiceless anguish, and -tlie,  birds that tie.av back and forward in the  trees, sang only discordant strains.  Gradually the meaning of it came to:  Elizabeth. She was looking out at  everything through the windows of a  new terror, born from the words she  had heard uttered in the place where  men in that locality drank the po'sonous  decoctions offered to the thirsty in all  mining districts.  'With Valleyfield dead what would the  world be to her? her heart asked, and  then answered its own question.

'    In   rapid  sequence   from  the. comprehension  of  this  dread,   came  the  wish  which   swelled' in   its volume.''Jto  save/  him if she could.' 'But how could she?,  -Only  one -possible way  seemed'open to<  her after miir-h   feverish planning. .-She  miirht   sign   the   document-  ot" his< d's-,  missal, which she still carried with her,  and alter sending him out of thfr miue,  leave it to Godfrey without resistance. \  It did not take her 1 ong<to'decide to  do this. She'would lose her mine,* but  what,A\as that to the life,of the man  she loved. '" Without her mine .she held  $42,000 now hi cash from its' revenues,  and that would.be sulficient for herself  und -her- father for the rest'of their  ��������� lives, even if the Eagle Kill was lost to  'them. Besides her father had been  (���������peculating lately with some money, she  hnd-Joahed-liim. and he had done well.  Buoyed up with- these thoughts her de-;  cision "soon became a'fixed ^one.^, -Fortunately she 'had brought the blank  document ��������� for' Valleylield's dismissal  with her- to^ the Little, Onlch District,  together' with-tin' ,dcod of ;her mine.  She took them both out of her portman  ' teau'now, a)id* borrowing a'pen and ink  .Irom"the clerk.:signed .the .first of these  iu a trembling hand.' -Then ?he took the  ' sir.-iiirhtest [path sbcOknew" to the Eagle  I,ill mine. 'Upon her arrival-there, shr  found a miner on guard with a Winchester thrown over his knees. He  l-new her. aud she was allowed 'io enter  ���������without question. ��������� 'Valleyfield had recovered sulliciently to be able to* don  his working clothes, . and was busy  directing, his men in their construction  of additional fortifications. A glad  lisrht. as usual. Hashed into his ovb������ at  sight of her7 but as usual it died at  once, leaving him looking paler that before. Elizabeth nerved herself for the  ordeal, and heiran, in such a firm voice,  that it' surprised herself, but she fel*.  fortified by the fact that she really dul  own this  property.  '���������Mr. Valleyfield, \ am the real owner  of this mine.' I did not tell you *o before, because it was not necessary.  Tlowever. 1 may tell you now that I  ib- not approve at all of any means of  holding this claim otber than those san-  t-oned by the law, and. therefore, I  shall relieve you from further duty here.  Here is the authority for my action.''  and she handed him the paper she had  recently signed.       ( >  Valleyfield dropped a board he was-  carrying, and looked at her a< if he  thought she had suddenly lost her  son-o<. "You own this mine did you  soy?" he questioned, as if he had not  heard a light.  "Ye������. I and my father. It was pur  (based by my TTm lo Bertram with  money supplied to him, by my mother  before she died. VJere is the deed of  ir." and she handed him the other paper  sht- was holding.  Yalieyfield's face wa������ a study, but thr:  surprise in it soon srave way to a new  determined look, and he ������aid softly, but  very firmly, as he handed both paper*!  bade to her:  "That is all right.

Therefore, in spite of your evident desire, to the .contrary, I shall still remain ���������. in control here for at the. .r������?ry  least. a day longer."  ''Elizabeth's firm attitude forsook her'  ������t onci- at the failure of her plan.. She  had never surmised, for she had never  had anything to do with the hiring or  men, that notice of dismissal would  have to be given to her'manager. . An  air of humiliation and deje;ct:iou, there-  fere, earno to her as she* stood there  vainly thinking of some way of assorting her will. ,  ������������������I will accept this,' of .course, as a  notice of dismissal," said A'ahe.ytield. a  little sadly, us he picked up ono of the  papers-' from where Elizabeth had laid  'them down, and put it 'iu his pocket.  "And now. if you will permit me, I will  conduct you off of this claim."     _   _  (Te b������ continued.)  HE WASN'T SCOTT.  TLut  He  Was  a   Good   Talker  and  m  ( Fast Sprinter.  "Professor Walter A. Wyckoff, the sociologist who made a tramp tour of the  country for the purpose of studying the  laboring classes at s-.hort range," said a  Florida hotel, man visiting in this city,  "is no doubt responsible for the luxurious  entertainment of many, an ingenious  hobo. I got .caught myself last winter,"  the boniface weni on, laughing, "so I  know exactly what I am talking about.  It happened hi this way: I was running  the same place I* have' now, and one day  ar the height of the season a gaunt,' cadaverous looking hobo dropped down out  of s^jace and struck me for a job. He  had whiskers that would have made his  fortune on the variety stage, a jutting  Reman beak and all the tiaditional outfit'down to the empty tomato can. I  told him to go back to. the kitchen'and  hang around until I could find something  'for him to do. r ,    ��������� '    ,  "You see, we have very few tramps in  that part of the state, and I make it a  rule never to turn away a white man  oVrho says he is hungry. Well. I was pretty busy just- then \viih a houseful of people and thought no more of this particular wanderer until one evening when my  wife came to me in great excitement and  said~-  ", 'John, have you any idea ��������� who that  tramp really is"?'''     ,'  'Vile may be Obm Paul or the eiu-  'press of China for all I linow,' I replied  calmly.  " 'Nonsense,' said she: 'he is Professor  Scott'of some college up in Iowa or Illinois, and he is making the' same kind of  study- that Professor Wyckoff made last  year!'    , ' ; .  "I was, at first disposed  to laugh, of  course, but mywife is a woman not easi-  , ly  fooled, and her earnestness was impressive.'-. .    ' '         ,  - ." '1 suspected"p6naething from thefirst,'  she'said,,'and a little while ago 1 pinned  him' down,- and lie admitted the whole  thing. I want,yourto go out and have a  talk withchini right away.' *  "I h'unte*1 up our disguised educationalist und found him in the barn.  " 'Yes,' it is true.' ho said.' 'I am Professor Scott;1 of>whom you have-probably  heard, and I'm studying labor conditions  along about the' same lines followed by  my friend Wyckoff.'  "He then went on- in a sketchy and  graphic fashion" to relate his adventures  since iStarting out in the spring, and before J1 knew itT found myself deeply absorbed in the narrative.- He was a capi-.  tal talker, and the'subject is one that has  always interested me profoundly, so I  presume he had^no trouble in getting me  thoroughly hypnotized. At any rate, that  'is, the' only way I can account for the  fact that I begged him to loaf around tho  premises collecting data as;loug as he de-/  sired and to ..consider himself my guest.  My wife, who is a'sociological enthusiast,  seconded my invitation and urged .him  not^to think of doing-anv work''while he  was with us. He promised her earnestly  thatlhe would-abstain. As nearly" as I  remember, the distinguished investigator  had- honored us",with his presence-for  about three weeks when a tourist' from  Baltimore happened to see him prowling  around the back yard one evening and  asked me where I had lassoed 'Gladstone Jones.'    , r     o  -*' 'He's a picturesque, educated hobo,  known to police courts all along the south  Atlantic ham saudwfch route,' said the  tourist, 'and gets his nickname "Glad:  stone" from the extent and variety of his  information. Of course,' he added, 'the  old humbug could never impose on anybody of education, but he can make the  average farmer open his mouth like a  boar trap.'  " 'Gladstone' Jones^ alias Professor  Scott, had about ten yards start when I  came out of the back door with a1 club,"  said the hotel man sadly, "and I regret  to state that I was unable to close 'the  gap. l Going up the railroad track he developed sprinting powers thatwere really  phenomenal. 1 have never sf>en him  since."-  Tallied One!

CHASE  Is Measured by the Cures He Makes���������Each  Remedy Specific for Certain Diseases���������  A Kemarkable Cure of Bright's Disease.  '9  In this practical age a physician's  ability is measured by the actual  cures he makes. Judged by this high  standard, Dr. Chase stands pre-eminent as a giant among physicians.  Take kidney and liver derangements,  for example. Dr. Chase, by means  of his Kidney-Liver pills, has brought*  about some of the most surprising  cures ever effected. This is due to  the direct and specific action of this  great home treatment on the liver  and kidneys. Here is the experience  of a highly respected resident of Con-  secon,  Ont. :���������  Mr. James Dellihunt, Consecon,  Prince Edward County, Ont., -writes:  ' 'For several years I suffered great  tortures of mind and body from  Bright's disease of the kidneys. The  pains were sometimes almost beyond  endurance and extended from my  head and between the shoulders down  the whole spinal column and seemed  to concentrate across my; kidneys.  l*y back -was never entirely free from  pain. When I got up in the morning  I could not straighten myself at all,  but would go bent nearly double  most all day.   My water -was sca.nty  and  at other times     profuse,  and  it  gave me great pain to urinate.  "I could do no work/ and, though.  I tried many kinds of kidney pills,  could get no relief. As a last resbrt  I was induced by a friend to give Dr.'  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills a trial. I  felt a change after the first dose. I  used in all about five boxes, and  they have entirely cured. ,me. I havs  no pains now and can do as good a  day's work si-���������.-'. ever could.

When  the dun horse came nearer, it was easy  to see that there were two'persons on  his back. After a moment's waiting  there was a shout of joy. They all  recognized Buck Seymore. and behind  him on the dun horse rode Kamie Arland.  Miss Ramie says that she was walking along a narrow goat trail in the  chaparral   when   a   large   black   bear  suddenly appeared in front of her. She  quickly turned to run away. wTheu a  curious   looking   animal,   running   on  four feet, sprang out of the chaparral into the trail.   "I saw at a glance,"  she says,  "that the monster in some  way resembled a human being, and it  flashed'across my mind that I was confronted by the bear king of the Kicka-  poos:    It threw one of its long arms  about my neck, glared  into my eyes  and uttered; a. horrible sound.;  I expected to be torn to fragments.    The  creature seized my hands and 7threw  me on its back and fled toward the  mountains,  and   it  seemed  to  me   it  could run faster than anything I had  ever  seen  before., , After a time we  came to a sort of den inhabited by an  old bear with several cubs.   Here the  bear-man threw me on the ground and  sat down. ,  "It seldom looked toward me, for it  seemed to be very tired, and I believe  it would have fallen asleep, but the  cubs kept biting its hands and feet in  a playful manner, as if eager to be noticed. I'was thinking of some plan to  escape. I thought that I might slip  away if they should all fall asleep. A  wolf howled, and instantly every bear  and the bear man sprang to their feet.  Her Advice to Her Hnsbnnd and  the  Result of FolloiYluff It.  There was once a Woman who.se  Husband Depended on the State of  the Market for his Daily Toast. One  Day he Appeared before Her with a  Sad Countenance.  "All is Over, my Dear," said be.  "Wheat is Way Down, and I doubt  if after Tomorrow we shall have More  than Ten Thousand a Year to Live On.  I am Sorry that I Married you to Drag  you Down to Tnis, but I must Tell you  Sooner or Later. I am a Ruined Man."  "Nay, do not Lose Heart." said his  Wife! "Can you not Speculate Further V"  "I cannot," he replied, "for I have  Lost my Nerve. My Friends Urge me  to Throw what I Have into Copper,  but 1 ��������� Dare Not. Five Thousand a  Year would Hardly buy Croquettes for  Two. I would Better Keep whac 1  have Saved rrom the Smash."  "At any rate.'" said she, "come Out  and Have some Lunch. Let us (Jo to  Sherrj''s and get a Nice Litle Bird.  Then you will Feel Better."  "Bird!" exclaimed her Hu"?bnud  "Unhappy Woman, if you see anything  better than Broiled Chicken and Beef  a la Mode for the Rest of Your Life,  you will Do Well. In my present  Frame of Mind 1 would Suggest a  Night Lunch Cart."  "Let us have One Good Meal at  least." urged his Wife, "beforo we Die  to the World. I have Twenty Dollais  in my I'ursc. 1 will Buy our Lunch  with that: after that the Night Lunch."  "Very well, for the Last Time.'' replied her Husband. '  Then they w-ent to an Expensive  Restaurant and Ate a more than Satisfactory Luncheon. At the end of it her  Husband said: '        ;  "1 think Better o(f that Copper than  :l Did."    ;. ������������������ ��������� ���������   -   '    ''  . ���������      ���������  It "Waa Something Else.
