Strange Oase of Accidental
Shooting at Rock Creek
Last Friday
As a result of-a peculiar accident
wbich occurred at Rock -Creek last
Friday night, Roland Lokholm, a
prospector of that plnce, had bis
arm amputated just below the shoulder by Dr. Kingston at the Cottage
hospital in this city on Sunday
morning.
Lokholm and his partner, Dave
Woodhead, of this city, were doing
assessment work on some mineral
claims at Rock Creek owned by
President J. J. Warren and Superintendent Demutb, of tbe Kettle
Valley line. The cabin in wbich
tbey were living was infested with
wood rats. Aa a consequence of this,
and also on account ot the warm
weather, the man slept outside the
cabin. During the night, while his
partner was asleep, Lokholm got up
to chase one of these animals away
from the premises. While he was sitting on a log, s- couple of feet from
the bed, engaged in putting on his
si.oeB, Woodhead awakened: Wood-
head Immediately grabbed a gun
standing beside the bed and fired at
b 8 partner, bitting him in the right
arm. While in the act of firing a
second shot, Lokholm spoke to him,
begging bim not to shoot, at tbe
same time catching hold of tbe
gun with his left band and throwing
it aside. When Woodhead realized
what he had done, he at onee hastened to • nearby railway construe
tion camp for assistance. Lokholm
wag brought to this city by a special
train on Friday night. Every endeavor was made to save the limb,,
but on Sunday it was found necessary to amputate it.
In tbe evening a party of men
had been telling bear stories at tbe
cabin. They conveyed tbe impression that bears were very plentiful
at Rock Creek. This at first led to
tbe belief that Woodhead bad, on
awakening in the middle of the
night, mistaken his partner for a
bear. But a remark made by bim
when he wbs about to fire the second shot does away with tbis
theory. When Lokholm begged
Woodhead not to shoot, Wood-
head replied: "I'll shoot any man
who comes prowling around here at
night." The most plausible ex-
planation of the shooting, therefore,
is that Woodhead was badly frightened and only half awake when it
occurred.
Warren's Funeral
The Victoria Colonist of July 10
says:
"The funeral of the late Edward
George Warren took place yesterday
afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Masonic Temple, under the auspices of
Vancouver and Quadra Lodge No.

and E, W. Bishop. Tbere wsb a
large attendance of friends, and
many floral tributes trom acqaint-

Knew Their Places
Here iB -a story which Baron
Dowse, the celebrated judge, once
told in that exaggerated "brogue"
wbich he loved to employ. "I was
down io Cork last month holding
assizes. On the first day, wben the
jury came in, the officer of tbe court
said: 'Gintlemin av tbe jury, ye'll
take your accustomed places, if ye
plaze.' And may I never langh,"
said the baron "if tbey didn't all
walk into tbe dock,"
Man Travels From Phoenix
to Grand Forks to Bury
Live Dog
Andrew Johnson and a party of
'friends came down from Pboenix on
Monday. On tbeir way home, when
opposite tbe Doukhobor colony,
Andy's dog apparently gave up tbe
ghost. Having oo implements for
grave digging witb them, interment
was made in a strawstack. When
Andy got home he began to grieve
over the loss of his., faithful animal
friend. Tbe dog bad bad been in
tbe family a great number of years,
and the fact that he bad not been
given decent burial smote Andy's
conscience. Tbe next morning be
shouldered a shovel and trugged
fifteen miles down the bill to perform the last sad rites. When
Andy dug down into the strawstack
and uncovered the dog, tbe animal
jumped up, as frisky as be had
been before be went into tbe comatose state. It was a case of love's
labor lost.

Potted Roses
There was a time when Englishmen could celebrate St. George's
day by feasting on roses as well as
wearing them. Old cookery books
abound in recipes into which rose
leaves enter.
One writer tells how to make potted roses. "I first pound some of the
most fragrant roses in a mortar;
then I take the brains of birds and
pigs well boiled and stripped of
every particle of meat. I then add
the yolks of some eggs, some oil, a
little cordial, some pepper and some
wine. After having beaten and
mixed it well together, I place it
over a slow fire. When tbis dish is
brought to table the most delicious
fragrance issues forth, covering the
guests witb delight" Every good
housewife in the seventeenth century made rose water, which was
used for flavoring food.—1-ondon

Popularity as a Summer Resort
Christina lake, twelve miles east
of this city, has never been as popular as a summer resort as it is season. With the inauguration of an
auto stage between tbe city and the
lake this popularity will be greatly
heightened. As better roads place
the lake within easy reach by automobile of the' Boundary cities and
the towns as far south "as Spokane,
the lake shores are becoming dotted
with summer homes. There is a
good sandy beach along the lake,
whicb is about fourteen miles in
length and from balf a mile to a
mile and a half in width. There is
excellent boating, bathing and fishing. Located at an elevation of
1400 feet, the climate at the lake is
ideal, and from a scenic point of
view it is not surpassed by any other
summer resort io the province.

Tho Bpices are a very Interesting

THE SAMPLE MARKET
Grain Fixing and Grain Mixing
Dear Mr. Editor,
Will you permit an ordinary homesteader to pass an opinion ou a very
plausible, and at the same time a
very great injury that threatens tha
grain trade, of the Westt I refer to
the establishment of a sample market.
The grain sharks are making a determined effort to get legal authority
to open such markets ln Winnipeg and
Fort William. The scheme is to take
a certain quantity of grain from every
carload and place lt on view in the
grain exchange, and as soon as the
car is sold, the car from which tU-
sample is taken Is sent to its destination by the railway company. Meanwhile the cars are delayed in transit
twenty-four hours, ami cars not arriving at Winnipeg hefore eleven
o'clock on Saturday mornings are held
until eleven o'clock on the following
Monday morning. This means that
the loss of time in transit caused by
the sample market, reduces tlle canning capacity of tlle railway companies
nearly two days In evtfry week. This,
on the three main line* of railway to
Lake Superior, equals a reduction of
about 2,600 out of a total oi 15,000
available for the transportation of
grain during the whole of the busy
season. ,.
Now, sir, I look on this as a very
eerlouB matter. The great cry, almost menacing ln its Intensity, from
the Rooky Mountains to the Lake of
tlle Woods, haa been and will be,
"Give us cars! more cars!: more
cars!!!" And every newspaper in
Western Canada re-echoes the cry,
More cara!!!" And this too In the
face of tlie fuct that next lull will
witness an increase o( millions of
bushels of grain to be transported to
astern markets, it ls nothing short
of criminal lolly in the face of these
facts to place such an obstacle as a
sample market In the way to-prevent
rapid- and efficient transportation to
Fort William and Port Arthur.    ""
It is seldom, indeed that I cau commend the railway companies, but I
cannot shut my eyes to the fact that
they are all straining every nerve to
prepare for the fall rush. They are
Ikying double tracks as quickly as
possible. They are improving their
terminals. They are largely Increasing their elevator storage capacity.
They are buying hundreds of locomotives and thousands -of cars. And
ahull we 3tand supinely by and see the
grain sharks block the march of pro
gress. No! A thousand times no.
Rather let us help ourselves to get our
grain quickly to the lake front by sec-
lug that no obstacles are needlessly
allowed to Interfere with the transportation companies. The farmers
are perfectly right In asking for more
cars, and tho railway companies must
do their utmost to comply with the
demand, but is it not a queer way to
get them when we allow the available
supply to he cut down to the tune of
2,600 at one jjolt.
There Is another aspect ot this barefaced, attempt lo Impose a sample
market on us farmers. Ever since
the mixing ot wheat in lhe elevators
wbb forbidden by law, desperate attempts have been made by the grab',
sharks, backed by the big interests,
thc financiers and very likely by the
railway companies, to get al thc
wheat and play their old game of nt x-
Ing grades, and robbing us farmers.
(Shoe allow a sample market an.l they
can mix wheat to their heart'a content. Nothing Is easier for them.
They bi.y a number of cars of maybe
rejected wheat ny sample, then buy a
car or two of the higher grade, send
the whole to an elevator, dump the
good and bad into thc same bin, mix
the whole thoroughly-and Bteal a higher grade and sell ft a price that nets
a substantial profit. Thus the mixing
is as fhorougmy done as It would b.
If there were no law to prevent it.
The men who are actively seeking
to get the sample mnrket establish™
are the same gang who formed tho
Winnipeg grain combine, which controlled thc entire wheat market ot;
Western Canada. They are the men
who named the price to be paid for
laheat nt every shipping point until
the farmers got t'tii) Grain Act amended so as to compel the railways to
accept wheat loaded lu cars ut loading platforms uml the distribution of
empty cars io delators und (firmer*
on equal ternm. Ever since, this
gram combine has been extremely per-
slstont In their efforts lo regain us
much as they pusslbly could of their
former control of thn grain trade.
Their latest Is the sample market
swindle. I cuiiiiot believe that Ihey
will succeed. Hut 'Eternal vigilance
Is tlie price uf freedom," from our subjection to the exactions of this unprincipled gaag of plutocrats'.
I fail to see how **■'" cau gain from
lhe opening of a sample market, but,
aa I have proved, wc can lose much.
We now have honest inspectors and
honest grades. Our markets ave free
and open, and aro beyond the manipulation of greedy men, who seek ouly
to "enrich themselves nt the coat of
the farmers.    Let us keep tbem so.
Yours truly,

TWO YEA^SUFFERING
Brought on by a Severe Strain—How
a Cure Was Found
Mr. Joseph Stephens, Rosemottnt.
Ont, ls one of the great host who
continually sound the praises of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and he has
much reason to do so as they brought
liiin from suffering lo health, after
he had spent muoh money and two
yeacs of time experimenting with other treatments. Mr. Stephens tells his
experience as follows: "In the month
of January, 1908, while working ln a
logging camp at Creston, B.C., I got
my back badly Injured. I suffered
a great deal of pain and was almost
helpless. I tried plasters, thinking
they would help me, but they were o'
no use. I took several medicines,
equally without beneflt. Then I was
advised to try electrical treatment
and did so for a time, but without
getting any permanent relief, and 1*.
began to look as though I was going
to be permanently crippled. Then I
was advised to undergo treatment
with a specialist at Spokane, Wash.
After examining me he said I was In
a very bad shape and that the trouble was likely to result In Bright's
disease. However, he told me that
be felt sure he could cure me. At a
heavy expense 1 was uuder <lils treatment for three months, but did not
get the least benefit. I was almost
in despair; work was plentiful and
wages good, but I could not work,, as
I was quite unable to bend. I was iu
this condition for about two years,
when my brother, who was with me
all the time, came across one of Dr.
Williams' pamphlets and read of the
great work Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
were doing. He urged me to try
them, but I thought It would be useless to spend more money after all
the other treatment had failed. ' He
insisted, however, and got a dozen
boxes of the Pills and I began to
take them. Before I had used a half
dozen boxes I felt relief, and I continued taking the Pills until every
vestige of the pain was gone, and 1
could raise my hands above my head
and then bend until I coul,! touch my
toes with my fingers, something I had
not been able to do for over two
years. My cine was a great surprise
to my comrades, and you may be sure
I told them what had brought It about.
I am now as well and strong as any
man in the country and I owe tt all
to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

FRIDAY, JULY  19, 1912
Wi. knew it was coming.
Tlie pampered newspaper pets
ofthe McBride and Borden
governments are now accusing the electors of Saskatchewan of disloyalty.
Thk Sun never uses the
word "knocker," because itis
sufficiently patriotic to confine,
itself to the Knglish language.
We do not pretend to be
callable of giving a correct
definition of the word, as wc
do not happen to be thc possessor of a slang dictionary;
but taking the broadest mean
ing of it, we should say that
a "knocker" is a person who
does not take the same view
of a question as we do. We
Jjave also heard men who
exposes fraudulent mining
and real estate deals calleil
"knockers." It is therefore an'
honorable distinction to be a
"knocker." BrieHy, the bastard word should be relegated
back to the slums whence it
sprung. At best, it is only
used by featherweight editors
who lack a sufficient vocabulary to* express their ideas in
thc language of the land they
profess to love.
Thk announcement of the
result of the high school entrance examinations in this
city is a keen disappointment
to the citizens. The showing
is the poorest ever made by
our public school, which has
heretofore enjoyed the distinction of being one of the
best educational institutions
in the province. While it is
true that at a former examination only four candidates
passed, the number of failures
nave never been as great as
on the present occasion, nor
have the marks of those that
passed been as low. The
blame must charged against
the late principal, iu allowing
scholars imperfectly prepared
for the examinations to write.
Neither were his indolent
habits and lack of interest in
Au. tragedies do not necessarily end in bucketsful of
blood. A man or woman
may make a single misstep
which will alter their after
lives for the worse. Such tragedies are quite common. One
occurred in Grand Forks a
couple of weeks ago. A young
architect made a fa,lse step,
Erobably through no fault of
is own, if all stories relative
to the case are to be taken
into account, and he he was
banished from the city. That
he possessed intellect above
the ordinary followers of profession his work will attest.
Some of his designs for business blocks and residences
show originality of a high
order, coupled with a pleasing
artistic taste. Taken as a
whole, his work was superior
to that turned out by the average city architect. Had he
not pursued the quest that led
to his banishment,both he and
the   city   would   have been

Growing of Nuts as an Article of Food Now Attracting Much Attention
The recent crusade in favor of
.nuts as an article of diet may or mar
not be responsible, but it is certain
that tbe.growing of nuts for food is
now attracting more attention than
used to be given it, and that the area
devoted to commercial nut growing
is extending its northern boundary.
Northern nut trees, whether chestnut, hickory, or filbert, are now
mostly wild; but in the south there
are "nut orchards," and possibly
we shall soon see plantations of cultivated nut trees in the- north. The j
National Nut Growers' association ',
he|d its tenth annu.il convention in i
Mobile, Ala., last October, and in;
November, 1910, a Northern Nut
Growers' association was organized
iii New York. The extension of the
nut growing area is one of the objects of this association. Among ihe
nuts once thought to be distinctly
southern, but now beginning to be
grown in the north," is the pecan.
In a report of a recent meeting of
tbe association at Cornell university,
the American Fruit and Nut Journal (Petersburg, Va.) says:
"Among tbe important papers presented was an exceedingly interesting one by T. P. Littlepage,. of
Washington, who bas extepsive
pecan interests in southern Indiana,
ond who for the past several years
has. been exploring the bottoms of
the Wabash and the Ohio for promising varieties of this splendid type
of the hickory. Mr. Liitlepage proved
quite conclusively by his extensive
explorations and by the submission
of convincing specimens of fruit
gathered from native trees, that
there were many varieties highly
meritorious and worthy of propaga-
- tion. Most of these varieties were
well filled, of good size, of excellent
flavor, and fine cracking qualities.
This latter characteristic is of importance, considered from the commercial standpoint. Mr. Littlepage's
paper left a distinct impression that
pecan culture was not to be confined
in the future to the cotton growing
states, but that regions in the north
were suitable for the cultivation of
tbis splendid pative nut."
At the same meeting, however,
W. N. Roper, "6l Petersburg, Va.,
warns northern cultivators not to
underestimate the difficulty of acclimating tbe pecan in the north.
We quote from the published proceedings (Ithaca, 1911) as follows:
"Pecan trees for successful culture must be of hardy, early maturing varieties, budded on stocks from
northern pecans, and grown in nursery under suitable climatic conditions. Tbese are requisites indicated by practical, experimental
work and observations extending
over several years.
"The successful production of
large southern pecans in far northern climates can hardly he looked
for except under the most favorable
conditions of soil, location, and season. There seems no good reason
for planting southern pecans in the
far north, exeept in an experimental
way; for there arc northern varieties
now being propaga ed that are the
equal of most of the standard southern soryj in quality, and very little
below them in size. They will prove
to be aB large or larger in the north
than tbe southern varieties grown in
the same locality, and much more
apt to bear regularly.
"Only well grown, vigorous pecan
trees should bc planted in the north.
It is a waste of time and money tn
plant indifferent pecan trees in any
locality, aod especially in a locality
where they have to contend witb
severe climatic conditions. Tbe size
of the tree is less important than its
root system and vigor, The purchasers of trees grown on thin,sandy
soil, with tbe root systems consisting almost entirely of straight tap
roots, destitute of laterals, need not
expect success. Most of these trees
will die early, and many- of those
that live will linger on for several
seasons without making mucb
growth, tiring out the patience of
| the planter."
A recent bulletin of tbe North
! Carolina department of agriculture
| on "Pecans" (No. 156), W. N.
Hutt notes that tbe pecan area appears to be moving northward. He
asserts tbat in regard to hardiness,
the history of the pecan tree is veiy
closely, paralleling that of the com
i plant.   We read:

The Bsautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.  n^An Inspiration of Love and
Affection—r^A Picture that will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A   Daily
Study for Old and Young
i/PHE Family Herald and Weekly Slur of Montreal, acknowledged to be
1 the greatest and best family mul farm paper on the continent, has on
many occasions given its renders most delightful 'premium picture,
but this season they bave secured what is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader-:. It is entitled "Ifoiue
Attain" and describes a touching hut joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"T.nddie," a collie dog, famoua for his beauty and gentleness, winners
>>f many prizes at dog snows, the pride ol the family mid neighborhood,
lias been stolen, and after mnny days' Absence he escapes une ftlghl from
bis captor and returns home una snowy winter's morning with the rope
which be broke in bin struggles for freedom dangling from bis collar.
His familiar bark brings bis little mistress, Mnrjorie, to the door nml
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to tbe door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting bis
paws on tier shoulder and resting his bend against her breast with n little
whine, which in his dog language means— "Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-henrled
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by yie celebrated artist, Arthur I. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture *»Hom9 Again" on heavy plnle pnper 22x2!)
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly -Star for 1012
The small sum of 81.90 will secure the two papers for a full year including a topy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Every- home in the Boundary should get the big *1.50 worth this
season.
• "In the. early days of corn growing, corn was considered a southern
plant that could not be grown successfully in tbe north and west.
Corn breeders set to work to pro'
duce a quick growing, early maturing, and therefore hardy variety of
corn. This end was attained, and a
variety pioduced that could make
make its entire growth and ripen its
grain in ninety days Jrom the planting of the seed. This 'Ninety-day I
Corn,' as t_Te variety was called, pro- j
duced a revolution in the corn grow-
ing world. Corn growing went north
by leaps and bounds. Earlier and
quicker maturing varieties were- produced, until corn is now grown successfully away north in Canada.
"It now looks as if the history of
pecan growing will be analogous to
that of corn production. Even as
far north as Pennsylvania, seedling
pecan trees have been found growing and producing matured' nuts.
The western range of pecan growing
has also been steadily advanced.
The pecan is found native along the
.Mississippi and its tributaries as far
north as Davenport, Iown; Terre
Haute, Indiana, and Cincinnati,
Ohio. The northwestern area in
which it is indigenous embraces"portions of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana,
Ohio, .Miflsnuri, and Kentucky.
From the native areas of the pecan
in these states nuts have been carried and trees planted in yards, gardens and fields over a very wide
range of country. Trifling as Buch
plantingB may seem individually,
they amount in the aggregate to
thousands of trees."
Altogether it would seem that just
as tbe Canadian northwest, once
looked upon as almost within the
Arctic circle, now teems with hardy
varieties of wheat, so our northern
states may soon be teeming with
orchards of pecans and other "southern" nnts. The possibility of this is
even now being skilfully utilized by
the unscrupulous. Dr. W. C. Dem-
ing, of Westchester, N.Y., secretiry
of the Northern Nut Growers' association, writes of "Nut Promotions," in The American Fruit and
Nut Journal (Petersburg, Va.,
March-April):
"Tbe northern nut grower is not
yel bothered -with northern nut pn -
ui itions. But the allurements of
p can growing in the south are
spread before us with our. own bread
a id butter and morning coffee. The
orange nnd pomelo properties hnve
been banished from the stage, ur
made to play second fiddle, and
now we see in the limelight the pecan plantation, with a vista of provision for old age and insurance fur
our children. And there shall be no
work nor care nor trouble about it
ul all. Only something down mid
'about ten dollars n month for,ninety-
six months. And the inter,-ropi ng
is to more thnn pay for thnt It is
indeed an enticing presentation.
"Although we hnve n«' vet nu
northern nut promotions, wu may
expect the time when the Bandy
, barrens nf the shore nnd the boulder
pastures of thc rock ribbed bills
will be cut up   into  live-acre   plots
I and promoted ns the minimi bume
of the chestnut and hickory, holding potential fortunes fur their developers 1 hope it wilt be so. for it
will postulate a foundation in fnct.
"We cnn picture the day when
our doorynrds, uur roadsides, uur
fields and bills -ball be shaded hy
grand nut trees, sbuweiing sustenance and wealth upon our descendants and all people, and bearing lbe
names of their originators; whin tbe
housewife of the future shall send

HORSES   NEED   CAREFUL   HANDLING
To most horse owners It Is a matter
of costly experience that an apparently slight wrench or sprain or cut Is
much more serious ln a horse tha.i in
a human being. A man goes ahead
and works It off, but the horse Is
liable to be "put out of commission"
for weeks or months.
When tbis has happened In a busy
season, the horse owner ls thereafter
keenly interested In getting quick act-
ton at the first sign of accident or
disease. In fact many successful
horsemen make a practice of looking
each animal over carefully every
morning to.see that It Is all right. K
tt Is not, they get busy at once.    ■
A great help then ls a little book

Women of Persia
During the last five years, the women ot Persia have become almost at
a bound the most progressive, not to
say radical, in the world. The tact
makes one gape wltb astonishment,
and upsets the previous nations of
centuries.
Without the powerful moral Influence of the Persian women—those
so-called chattels of the oriental lords
of creation—the short-lived, but niar-
velously conducted revolutionary
movement In Persia which has receut-
ly been smothered by Russia and Eng
land would have paled early Into a
mere disorganized protest. It Was
they, from their cloistered lives, who,
with the patriotic support of tfio lath
inns priests, fomented the national
movement of the forms of government
aud for Uie inculcation of western political, commercial and ethical code...

Since the Slugger, Coffee, Was Abandoned
Coffee probably causes more biliousness and so-called malaria than
any one other thing—even bad climate. (Tea Is just as harmful as coffee because it contains caffeine the
drug in coffee).
A Ft. Worth man says:
"I have always been of a bllioui
temperament, subject to malaria and
up to one year ago a perfect slave to
coffee. At times I would be covered
with boils and full of malarial poison,
was very'nervous and had swimming
in the head.
I don't know how it happened, but
I finally became convinced that my
sickness was due to the use of coffee,
and.a little less than a year ago .1
stopped coffee and began drinking
Postum.
From that time I have not had a
bail, not had malaria at all, have gained 15 pounds good solid weight and
know beyond alL doubt this is due to
tne use of Postum ln place of coffee
as I have taken no medicine at all.
"Postum has certainly made
healthy, red blood for me tn place ot
the blood that coffee drinking impov
erlshed and made unhealthy." Name
given by Canadian Postum Co., Windsor, Ont.
Postum makes red blood.

Instructors were uot easy to get i
accepted one of these positions' and
ttarted west toon afterward. 1 went
as far at tbe Union Tactile wai tben
built, Laramie, where I took a stagecoach to my destination In tbt mountains. I was obliged to. stop over ont
night In Laramie, then a city of dance-
bouses aod gambling deus, for tbt
conch did uot leave Oil the next morning. •
When I awoke and looked at 'my
trstcb I discovered lhat I bad Just
tlmt to dress, swallow a cup ot coffee
and get to the express oB|ce. from
which tht coach started. 1 found tha
agent directing tbe shipment of boxes,
whicb, though not large, appeared to
be heavy, while tbe passengers, men
and women, were getting Into the
coach. Ou tbe box snt Ibe driver, a
fine looking, well made young man,
whose rough clothes could not concenl
a certain appearance of refinement
there wat In blm.
I waa about to get Into tht coach
when tbe agent stopped me. "You
can't go on this coach," ht said, "lft
run."
I wat, never more distressed In my
life. Stopping ln that horrid town even
tor a few hours was horrible to tblnk
of, nud the agent told me that another
coach would nut leave till tht next
morning. A tear trickled down my
cheek, and. looking up, 1 taw tbt
hsndsomo young driver looking at me
pityingly and with admiration.    *>

to agree with blm about tbe matter,
but tht agent kept shoking bit bend
and laying, "It won't do at nil." Uut
anally tbe latter gnvt In ond lho driver, beckoning to me, told me 1 mlgbt
get up and take Jbo vacant seat beside
aim, (living mt a band, bt lifted mt up.
i Tbt morning wis delightful, ond tht
mountains toward which we were
driving wllb Iheir patches of snow and
tbt dark shadows resting hero and
tbtrt on their sides, though tbe aky wot
cloudless, were beautiful. I told tht
driver I wished the mountains wore
farther-awny so thnt we could enjoy
tbt prospect longor, whereupon b*
told ine they were sixty tullei' diets nt
and wt could not reach then, till tbt
middle of the afternoon. Bt laid tbt
rarity or the nttn,osphere made Ibem
look near. I asked blm the cnuse of
tbe shndows on tht mountains then
being no clouds to enst tbem, tnd bt
aold tht phenomenon bad not been explained.
1 I paaaed a very pleasant morning. I
IWst not surprised that the driver could
tell me a good deal about tbe country
and even ihe geological formation, for
Id tbose days a stage driver wai quite
an Important personage, but I wns
more surprised wben bt told mt bt
iwai a college graduate wbo bad comt
out to Colorado on a venture, bad got
•trended and temporarily taken up
■logo driving,
: While we were rolling along my new
found friend told mt that there hud
(wen a number of holdups of coaches

firing I must get down uuder tha teat,
where I would bt tn a measure protected', What surprised mt wai that
bt seemed very mucb concerned about
the matter of my being exposed to
any shooting there mlgbt be, toying
that be bnd persuaded tbe agent to let
me go on the conch In tbe teat beside
btm, md lt any barm camt to mt bt
would never forgive himself. I asked
blm It be expected we would be attacked, and be replied that tbe chancei
pere we would. We bad. treasure hotel aboard, end tbeit shipments were
constantly reported to road agents,
wbo knew exactly wbat coaches to attack.
lt teemed lingular to mt that tht
express company sbould lend out a
treasure that tbey expected tbe road
agents would take away from tbem,
aud I told tbe driver so, but ha said
tbe coinpany wai obliged to take risks
or they could not do any business.
This did aot satisfy me or make mt
feel any more comfortable.
We had changed horses tevtral
times and were approaching the foot-
bills of tbe mountains wben. passing
uetween a rise In the ground on eacn
side of tbe road, a maa rose up from
behind a rock ln front of ua and put
up his band na a signal for ua to stop.
1 wai lurprlsed that tbt driver obeyed
tbt order instantly since the man
showed no weapon, but 1 toon learned
tbe cause. Tbt driver knew full well
that rifles were pointed at him from
men ln concealment
Ai soon aa tbe coach camt to a
standstill four otber mta sprang up
from behind tbt rise In tbt ground and
advanced toward us.
'■You'll find tt in tht boot," said tbt
driver quietly, and they went back .
and, unstrapping tbt cover, tool out
tbe botes and placed them beside tht
road, whllt two robbers stood on eacb
•ide of tbe coicb with rifles ln tbelr
bands ready for use it tbe slightest
Indication of resistance. But so grent
were the expressions of terror from
tbe psssengers Ibat they soon lowered
their gum, tnd two ot tbem dropped
tbelr rifles and weut to thp assistance
of tbt man wbe nu unloading tbt
treasure.
: Bo far I didn't feel much afraid, for
lt looked ns though tbe road agents
1 would relieve the express company of
j the treasure and let us go on. Besides,
the expressions of terror of those Inside Ibt coacb txclted my contempt
Strong men were begging tbe robbers
to spsro their lives, while shrieks came
from tbe women, lt did not seem to
me tbat they wero ln any danger so
long as tbey did not offer resistance,
but tbat tbey bad lost tbelr heads
tbrough cowardice.
Uy friend tbe driver sat quieting tbe
horses by a word now and tben—for
tbey seemed to know wbat wu going
on and were very restive—but be teemed anxious about me. Wby I couldn't
understand, because I had no Idea of
resistance, and 1 didn't believe tbe robbers wonld molest a woman. I did not
even believe ibat tbey would collect
the valuable! of tho passeugen since
they hnd seven or eight boxes of bullion to tnke care of.
Tbe boxes were unloaded ind piled
on ont another beside tbe road. Twoot
the men who bad laid tbelr rifles down
and helped to carry tbt treasure were
about to pick tbem up; tbe otber armed
man beld hit weapon, muixle down, In

Before 1 'could obey t heard tbt

taw two of tbe road agents topple over.
None of the others had Iheir bands on
tbelr weapons, and before they could
get them every one was laid Jow. It
was all done In less than a quarter of a
mluute, and I law that getting down
under the seat wot unnecessary.
But whence came tb* firing? Surely
not from lhe cowardly passeugen. 1
looked at the driver for an explanation,
but be was busy wltb (be bones, wbo
