In the cow  camps, the barrooms and at the railroad station he hinted at lirst that a  certain person every one knew could  tell a''lot more about the death of the  old tunn than he eared to have known.  After n few days he began to brlug  the uame of l'ayson Iuto the conversation. His gossip became rumor and  then common report, When It. became  known that .lack had paid off the  mortgage on his ranch Buck came out  with the accusation that I'aysoii was  the murderer. Finding thai he was  listened to, "���������Buck made I he1 direct  charge that Payson had killed the station agent and with* the proceeds of  the robbery was paying oI'f his old  debts.  Gathering his own men about hlrn  nnd,being Joined by the idle hangers  on who are to be found about every  town, Duck led his party to the ranch  on tbe Sweetwater to accuse Jack and  no throw off in advance any suspicions  which might attach to himself.  Fortunately Slim happened to be at  Jack's ranch at the. time. When he  ���������entered tho corral he found Jack's accusers and defenders rapidly nearlug  ji battle.  iack was taking the charges coolly  enough, as he did uot kuow what support McKee had manufactured to uphold the charges he made.    Slim Informed McKee he would listen to what  be had  to  say  and  If afterward  he  .thought  Jack  guilty  he  would  place  him  under  arrest;  for  all  concerned  It would be better to���������go Into the house.  rhe-Sweefwater-boys-surrounded-Jack-  >s they followed Slim iuto the living  room.   Lining up ln opposing groups,  Slim. stood in���������;, the center to serve as  Judge and jury, with Buck and Jack  at hifl, right and left baud.  Inside the door Jack said: "Keep as  ijuiet as you can, boys. .. I don't .want  to alarm ray wife.   Now, what is Jt?"  The punchers hushed their discus-  liou of the charge and listened attentively to whnt the men most interested Und to say.  "Well, darn it all," apologized the  sheriff to Jnck, "It's nil darn fool busi-  ness anyway,' Buck here, he started  It-  Jack smiled sarcastically and, glancing nt McKee, remarked, "Buck McKee's started n good many things In  his day"- ,,        ,  liuck begnn to bluster. He could uot  face Jack fairly.   Already  placed on*  the defense when ho "had considered  be would be tlie accuser, McKee look  refuge In the plea of being wronged  by false suspicion.

"Mebbe you'll need them'if you get  loo careless with your talk," answered  the unruflled sheriff.  Turning to Jack, Slim snid, "This  fool thing can be settled with one  word from, you."  Tlie young ranchman listened to the  sheriff earnestly, Ilo wished to clenr  himself forever of all suspicions, l^e  did not waiit Kcho ever to hear that  thero was a false impression abroad  thnt she was the wife of a slnyor."  "What is It?" lie asked simply,  "Why;1 you paid off a mortgage of  an even three thousan' dollars last  week, didn't you?"  "Yea, What has that to do with  ll?" he asked.  Buck broke In at this point. Here  was the strongest card that he had ln  his hand, and the/sheriff had played  It. to McKee's advantage.  "Plenty!" Buck shouted. "Old Terrill wuz shot any killed an' robbed  an' the man who did It got just three  thousan' dollars."  "An' you mean to say that tho boss  here"��������� began Sagebrush. In his anger  making a rush at McKee, lie was  held back, but the disturbance actract-  ed Echo and Mrs. Allen from the  kitchen. Echo hurried, to her husband's side. He slipped his ami about  her waist, and together they faced his  accuser. **-.."���������  "All you got to say Is whar did you  get that money!" cried Buck, who had  seen Dick Lane pay it to Payson nnd  conjectured that Payson did uot dare  to reveal the fact, of, this payment,  with all the-disclosure it implied.  "Why, It was paid to me'by"��������� Theu  Jack stopped. He could not toll who  gave him the money without revealing  to Echo the return of Dick. The whole  miserable lie .would then come out.  Echo uoticed Jack's hesitancy.  "What is it? What's the matter?"  she asked ln frightened tones.  "Nothing, nothing," he nnswered  lightly to,lessen her terror.  "Hats off. everybody!" commanded  Slim in deference to the presence of  Echo. ' '-'���������''.._.'?>���������'������������������  "Who   are    these    men?    What's  wrong?" pleaded Echo.

In his agony he  clinched his fists until his nails sank  into the flesh, "1 can't tell you that!"  he cried ln his misery.  "Of course he can't," sneered Buck,  smiling ovllly in his triumph. ,  "Ho can't account fer himself on the  night uv tlio weddin'; ho rides a pacln'  horso���������rode on that night; he gets  three thousan' dollars paid him, an'  ho can't tell who paid It.

"  '  V*'   '   ���������';������������������  At What Time of Day Does Y*������ur  Braln Become Brightest?  Lord Alverstone, the Lord Chief  Justice of Bncland, in an address to  a gathering of students some time ago  said that he had'found from his own  long experience that tha early morning was the time when he could think  best.  There is no doubt that our power to  think varies greatly during the day;  Some people, like Lord Alverstone,  think best in the early morning���������be.  foro breakfast, but after au early  cup of tea; others think better in  the evening.or.lost thing at night.  Our power to think appears to de-  pond on the quantity of blood circulat-  ing in the brain, and any deyice that  will increase the flow of blood lo  the head will usually enable us to  think better. ������������������������������������*. r  Everyone knows from experience  that the brain is not at its best after  a heavy meal. The explanation of  Ibis, is simply that all the available  *blood in the body is drawn from tho  brain and tho extremities to help iu  tlie work of digestion.  For the same reason we can usually  think best after a period of faBting,  and it is known that clerks do better  work beforo lunch than afterwards,  The late Pr^Ljdayor, of Cambridge,  when engaged"onTiis latest ^ogkjyould.,  Occasionally go without food fo?"a  day^or morTat a time, arid for several  years before his deatii his food, coat  Mm no more than twopence a day.  Prolonged periods of sleeplessness  produce a sensitiveness and irritation  of the nerves, or, as the doctors call  it, a state of hyperuesthesia; which is  frequently favorable to tnought. Sonio  people can think only when walking,  and others only in the noise of streets  and crowds.or with the buzs of conversation all around. But most people require silence and solitude.  Opium and morphia, in ^moderate  doses, cause mental excitement of a  peculiarly pleasurable character,  which is always followed by a period  of intense depression.

Sir H; Edward Moss, who has induced Signor Leoncavallo,������the world-  famous composer, to conduct and superintend, at the Hippodrome, London, an abridged version.-*'of his own  opera, , ^-Pagliacca," began in early  life to evince an interest in theatrical  enterprises. When only seventeen he  joined with a chum a small "show" on  tour, but the venture was not a  success. -    fl  Later, the Franco-German war gave  him an idea which set him on tho  high road to prosperity. People wer<i  clamoring for news and pictures of  the campaign .and Mr. Moss, as ho  waa then, determined to give the pub.  lie a diorama of the war. He asked  his father, who was a theatrical manager in Manchester, to lend him  some money, and the diorama was  put on the road.  Wherever the show went tho verdict of the public was the same���������-"a  renlly good thing." In a month Sir  Edward was able to repay his'father  every penny he had borrowed and had  a substantial balance in hand.

It is possible that  the wife,* hnving been an Indian, had  heard a tradition handed down from  her forefathers that there was a treasure burled there. V <  Be this as it may, there must have  been some reason for the old couplo  putdng all their money In a barren  rock, and this, view isborne out by the  fact that old Alvarado. having willed  his purchase to his Bon and three nephews, called upon the former.to swear  that he would never part with his Interest In it.   When we remember that  this legacy bequeathed to young Pedro wns  supposed  to  be worth  but  $25 we cannot but assume that his  father jmust have had an inkling that  ita value was much greater. ,  After the old couple died'the summit  of the barren rock was not divided   amongjjtejlej^^  erty. Then came men who believed  that there might be silver under the  rock. They had plenty of money and  were ready to risk It in nninvestigation. They offered the heirs a large  cum for the property, and Pedro's cousins were willing and noxious to sell.  But Pedro, true to his oath, refused to  part with his share. In vain the others begged him not to stand in their  way of taking advantage of the offer.  Pedro stood firm. But after awhile a  friend loaned him the money, to buy  out his cousins' interest and make the  investigation ns to what the property  contained.  One day men begtfn to work oh tlie  top of tho hill with pick and shovel.  A month passed and nothing but ordinary earth and rock was displaced.  Tho couRlns came to Roe and jeered at  Pedro fotfa fpol. But Pedro had been  loaned'sufficient money lo pursue hla  investigations to tbe end and worked  on. Another month passed and yet another wllh the same result Then oue  day in a .twinkling all wns changed.  A vein was struck Indicating that tho  ralmllln mine, as it was called, was  tbo richest silver mine that had ever  been opened.  And now this story takes on a won-  ' derful change. Pedro Alvarado, sou  of a Mexican [icon father and an Indian mother, 'heir to a beggarly oatato  supposed to ho worth hut $-5, suddenly sprlnga. Into nu Incomo of $30,000 a  day., Tho fairy waves her wand nnd  tbo adobe hut In which Pedro waa  born Is changed into a sumptuous pal-  nco furnished from the manufactories  of tho old world.

Tho  owner's employees draw Immense salaries, and how much they steal besides does not appear, except iu tho  opulent manner tn which they live.  Will the mine always stand this  waste, this drain? Will there not  como a day when the vein will run  out? Aiid then? Well, then the silver king aud thoso who are sucking  his wealth will collapse.  Among them all there is one who  foreseen such a result. Pedro's wife  had drudged as a pebu. until' the mine  was opened. She remembered that  part of her life aud had no desire to  return tolt. Why uot from this river  of wealth on which they were floating  turn aside something to support them  in caso the fountain Bhould dry up?  Aud so she did. Instead of putting  away a few copper coins at a time as  her father-in-law had doue with which  to buy his rock, she took $1,000 bills  and hid them. For years she stored  away these bills.' No one knew that  they were being hidden, no one knew  their hiding place. Tho waste, the extravagance, tho money sucking by employees, relations, dependents continued, but every now nud again *the former peon woman hid away a thousand  dollar bill  -i ' i ���������',���������  True enough, what Senorn Alvarado  foresaw at last came about., The  earth taken out of the mine became  less rich. Instead of producing $30,000  aday it produced but a few hundred  dollars to the ton. All it was worth  must be paid to those who cnrrled It  from the mine Into the valley and for  getting the silver out of it Pedro hnd  seen nls fortune loom up nlmost in a  night; now he saw It sinking rapidly  away. Then to crown his loss water  appeared in his mine,   ���������  Water is0the great danger, the great  trouble when it comes, in mining. Tunnels must be built, expensive pumps  must be put in, either one or both.  Pedro had but one business idea in  his head. That was to hold on to his  property. But now even that idea had  ceased to be practicable. His mine  was no longer yuliiable unless worked  -onTbusIness-principles,-and-Pedro-was-  not a business man.  Since there had been nothing put  away, so there was nothing When the  end came. The man who had given  away and wasted millions now found  himself unable to give or waste any  longer. It was the old story of the  fairy who hnd raised palaces and other luxuries for tbe pauper, by muttering another incantation caused them  to vanish.  Then Senora Alvarado, who had  been tucking afray thousand dollar  bi|ls very conveniently, died. In distributing her effects a maid who had  been n long while in her service was  asted if there was anything that had  belonged to her mistress sho would  like to have. She said there was an  old quilt the senora had always used  which it would gratify her to possess.  The beloved woman had slept nnder  it for many years and would never let  It go out of her own keeping. Surely  this would be "a treasured souvenir,  But Pedro remonstrated against 'the  faithful servitor having nothing but  an old quilt much worn and not ovor  doon. Ho urged the maid to. name  something of greater valuo. She, however, clung to the quilt and would not  bo comforted without this article no  Intimately associated with her mistress. '"       '      ,  Now, Pedro wns nwnro that his wife  had not sympathized wltb bim, In his  extravagance; indeed, sbo hnd repeatedly warned him'that iio would como  to grief by It.

As to some products of the farm,  there is a difference of 40 to 50 pet  cent between the price; that the grower  receives und the i price that the consumer pays. There are even cases tu  which this price difference amounts to  300 per cent Port of the loss is due  to tx bad system of retail -distribution,  as when a dozen' city milk wugons  travel over *the sarnie route, each delivering one bottle' here and another  bottle there, when one wagon might as  well make all the deliveries nlong the  route. This same wuste appears even  more markedly between the farm and  the town. How many fully loaded  wagons do you pass in driving to  town? From n dozen farms a dozen  packages of butter, poultry or vegetables may go to town the same morning, each In a different vehicle Every  day a dozen parcels, of merchandise  are hauled out of town along the same  road in a dozen different conveyances,  nnd the time ond labor of eleven men  and eleven horses go for nothing.

It mothers knew the enormous advantage to be derived from such ���������  procedure they would welcome tha  Idea. Children would theu eat food  especially suited to children. Things  would bo cooked, und they would have  boforo them just what they should eat.  As it is tbey see tho food before  them tlmt is oaten hy the grownup-Stand tl)ey demand ft, cry for it, coax  for it or cajole by uny other method  that the little one Ih heir to. and tha  fond parentis too ofteu proue to say,  "Oh, let him have It thia oncO." And  there you ure, You know tbo rest-������  the little fevered brow, tho colic pains,  etc. ,;  But If with n bit ot extra work the  little ones wero permitted to have only  that which Is recognized as good for  tbem their eyes would not be bigger  than their stomachs, to the resulting  good of nil concerned.  Berries nre very plentiful and are  very good food, ouly they ought not to  be served to children unless the seeds  are extracted. That Is, they may bo  cooked and tbe pulp and Juice only given to the children. Seeds are Uidlgestl.  ble, and there is a possibility, that  ��������� they may lodge in the appendix.  The truth of the matter is that all  foods at tbis time of the year are nourishing if prqpiired properly. The great  mistake mnde is that we do not take  time to prepare them. Especially ia  this bad for the child. Nine out of ten  children, perhaj*. do not:know how to  chew their food properly. 'They swallow as soon an possible, and thus  chunks of fresh food ure given to the  digestive organs, which are unable to  cope with them. Especially Is this tbe  case with uncooked fruits.  1, would put a ban on nearly nil un* ,  cooked vfrults for children., They probably  cause  more  trouble  than  anything else, and all on account of improper'mastication.
