from the west say, the men (here are

as a result.
Sir William Van I Ionic said of the

issue of stock something like $80,000,
while .1510,000 or $20,000 would go a
long way in settling any strike wcr

-The community was shocked to
learn on Tuesday of the death by
banging on the previous evening of
Freddy Turnross. aged 13. The lad
had ' suffered from fits, and his
mind, was consequently affected,
but lately his health had.been better, and he hadjio repetition of (its
since December. On Monday he
appeared-to act rather differently
than usual and the last seen of him
alive was by his elder brother at 7
He was not in the house, all evening, and on thc elder brother returning home about ten o'clock
Mrs.-Turnross sent him to look for,
Freddy. . This resulted, in' the
ghastly find'of the body hanging
from a beam in' tbe hay loft. An
alarm was uraised, and with the
assistance of Andy Carlson the
body was taken down and Dr. C r-
ruthers summoned.
, Tbe rope in use was one in which
the strands were loosened at one
end, and the other end, with a knot
on it,-was passed through the loop
ot\a rope which had been fixed on
a beam for hauling up hay. .This
was located in a place which was
difficult of access. The other end
of the rope had then been doubled
back through the loose strands,
forming a noose, which had tightened on deceased's neck, and in
which he was found hanging. His
boots had been taken off and pni
in a corner of the hayloft.

on Monday evening, about 7 o'clock.
Told him to'go home. Stayed at
Granat's till 9:30. When I went
home moih'er told me to look for

his neck when I found him, Had

Carlson to loosen rope

said:���Cliarloy Turnross asked me
to,come  as  soon  as possible.    He
said ".Freddy  has  hanged himself,
but ..I   don't   think, he  is dead."
Found thc body cold with the exception of the chest.    Told them he
was  dead.     Examined'tho loft by
lamp light,   but' did   not  see   the
boots   afterwards   found.      Found
cap lying on bay  in front'of' pendant rope.     No  signs  of    struggle.
Loosened  strands of   the rope were
tied   together.     Saw a housclamp
lying   in   corner.      The- body was
that   of   a   boy 12  years   of   age,
strongly built  and  well nourished.
Cause  of  death was strangulation.
Attended   boy on   Dec. 5ih for epileptic  fits   which   he had,for some
days.     Do_\   bad   no  fit since Dec.
7th, but his intellect was distinctly
impaired by them.
To C. E. Shaw:���Consider he
was dead not more than three hours
or less than one hour.
The Coroner reported (he police
had made a search for the strange
cap but could not find il.
mother of deceased, said the strange
cap was new and looked as if
thrown from the loft. She thought
some boy must have been playing
with her boy in the loft.
To C. E. Shaw:���When deceased
got the fits he wanted to fight.
The Coroner pointed out deceased had been subject to mental
aberration. The development
about the strange cap had not. boon
satisfactorily accounted for and it
was for the jury to say whether it
should be further investigated.
Tin: vi.hdict.
After a short retirement, the jury
returned a verdict  that   "deceased
come to his death hy strangulation
caused   by   hanging    by    a

���mv*b&*$'��t y  THE KOOTENAY MAIL1  ��������� 1 Mtfm VWUfMBg fWi.WiH  i ROMANCE OF THE RAIL  BY   FREDERIC    REDALL.  ���������   [COXCI.UDKD.]  NINTH DAY.  fji.i.kt KxrosKO.  On Wednesday moruiti^ John Draper's first hiiiuirk-s were directed to  the Drovers' bank. There he learned,  of course, that [.culn-ii I-'illoy had  drawn the ?."iU.OOO. At the haul: cloore  nil trace of the fugitive'ceased. Ha  ,\vas not at any of the hotels, nor had  any of the president's Denver acquaintances seen him. It was certain  that the money had not reached the  hands of Dallon's men aiiri that they  had not set eyes on I'll ley since he left  them. .<->  Greatly  puzzled  and surprised  was  Draper at this state of affairs.    Two  eeptioually trying experience."  "I like the country well enough," was  the response. "The scenery, is magnificent, and the climate is superb, but I  must confess I don't admire some of Its  products���������the Dallon gang, for instance," ahe concluded, laughing.  "Well, I can't blame you for that,  only I had hoped to show you something of the west at its best before we  turned our faces toward the rising sun  again.   What do the girls say'/"  "The girls say, "Stand not upon the  order of your going, but go quickly,' "  said saucy Madge. "Flo and I have  settled everything. We don't want any  more adventures.    We've seen enough  theories prcM-nted themselves.    Either.I of  tlle  country,  and   tho   people can  wait. We want to go home!" and she  put lier knuckles in her eyes and pre-  tended to boo-hoo like a spoiled child.  Draper turned to Florence for coufir  mutton, who said:  .. "t don't want to seem ungrateful, bur  I should like to get back to New York."  "Well. Ives, my boy,", said their host,  "you and I evidently have no option In  ���������the matter, but as a mrre matter of  P'-liteiiess I should like to hear youi  wiMiPK."'  "Oh. I'm for New York." was the uu  Mushing reply "You know my leave  expires tomorrow." Hut the rogue had  laken his cue from .Madge. If she had  siiid. "Stay." he would have found  means to square the otiiee for a few  da; -��������� lunger. ,     '  "That -.-ctrli's it!" said Uncle John  ������������������Pin in n liiipi'less minority, and, to b'  trunk wit 11 you. I want to get back  my-elf." And then In- told tlieni ol  l-'illey's disappearance with the money  intended I'or their ransom.   ,  "The wretch!" his;,cd Florence (Iran  niss. Iiei usually pale face while with  indignation. "We might have , been  iiinrdc led 'for all he cared! I always  disliked blm. but 1 almost came to hate>  .him on this trip. So tliere!" And she  subsided into a chair, all quivering,  . with the unwonted excitement.  Mrs  Ilurst beheld this little outburst  with   quiet   satisfaction.     If   niitlilns  . else had been accomplished, Pi I ley had  put himself out of the running, mid the  dancer was past.   That Florence ever  ���������regarded  the  man  seriously  she  had  ./never been qnite able to credit.   Now it  i was John Draper's turn, and he should  have tils innings before New York was  ! reached.  j     "Then  It  was Ches���������Mr.   Ives���������who'  t really saved us after all?" said Madge  j "What should we have done without  you?" she said.1' The words were simple and commonplace enough, but the  . tone and tlie glance  which  accompanied them were eloquent of honest admiration   and   maidenly   liking.    Mrs  Flurst fsw and in that Instant submit  ted to the inevitable. .  "Yes; we certainly owe our safety to  Chester." said Uncle John. "1 should  never have .thought of the little river  ss a means of escape, and if I had I'm  too fat to wriggle along like an eel In a  water pipe. Ah, Ches. my boy, It's yon  youngsters who capture all the best  things.in life after all, and we old fel  lows have to put up with what Is left,'"  sighed Uncle John In mock dismay.  But Florence would iione of this and  came to tlie rescue.  "Why, Mr. Draper, what would we  poor women have done if you had left  us?"  "Yes." chimed In Ives, modestly anx  ions to chance the direction of the con  versatiou: "it needed more courage and  fortitude to stay behind in that den of  thieves than it did to cut and run The  only cur in tlie party vanished, and we-  can thank our stars that be did us uone  ofthe mischief,he intended."  So saying he rose and went to tin-  window where Madge was K.'tziii'j  down at tlie busy life of the (Juecii  City of the Plains, ami we will not dls  turb them  "How soon can we start, .Folfn?" qne  rled Mrs Hurst.  "This very evening," was the rcplv  "We eatl  go east  with the flier at ti  o'el'iek    Is it agreedV"  '���������'i ������h. yes!    Let us get away," begged  Florence, and tints It was settled. ,  Filley bad met with foul play at the  hands or some one who witnessed him  draw the money or else he was pursuing some ulterior plan of his own. Hut  among the'letters and dispatches waiting for him Draper found the following telegram, dated New York, Tuesday, from the cnsliicr nf the'(Irain Exchange National bunk:  Notes for fifty il]������ii=anil drawn by K, K. filUy,  favor nf t'litiiii). & ("'lilting, indorn-d by you, pre-  Ri'iilrd pn; incut.

Anil,ns Reuben Filley will not figure In  those pages .again it may lie stated  lierctbat- before leaving Denver John  ' Draper had siiHicient evidence to convince him that his trusted secretary  was not only a forger and n defaulter,  but a treacherous villain.  He was traced to the Union depot,  thence to San Francisco, where tbe  trail was lost. It was supposed that  he caught an outward bound Pneltic  mall steamer for China mid Japan,  from whence it would be easy for him  to reach India or Australia. Where he  ultimately "fetched up" was never definitely known. , ,1,'jhn Draper declined  to continue' th? search, preferring .to  pocket the loss. Neither the bank nor  Cutting & Cutting cared to prosecute.  Tlie money secured on the forged notes  for the partnership interest was refunded, and hence the matter dropped.  a result "which the astute Filley proba  lily foresaw The world of New York  knew him no more.  Tlie failure of President Draper to  appear at the meeting of the railroad  magnates occa-siniicd no surprise at  lirst. as it was expected that he might  arrive at any moment. Then'came the  tidings of the mysterious disappearing  o "  part of the express train, and tlie  wildest conjectures became rife Every lent of the' railroad between Colo-  rm!,) Springs and Denver was searched  again and asu'ii clurji'iL: the daylight  hours ot i'- ;��������� ay and Mnudar: but. as  we have s., n n v. as not until Tuesday  p.i';riri:g !' al the r i-gntteii :iml disused  ni!!.- ad --;.,:: v. a- ihoimht ot  The iic'"s- ii'i:ie rescue was tele-  ;:" a.ilv >l p to I'. ;'\ --r from Castle flock,  and so vh'ii D::. i.-r appeared at the  sessii n i I" : i; c.i'i'reres on Wednesday  inonii: ll-.v l.iicvv' all .tilnnit his ad-  venture ami ii> li.-npy termination  .Much of the routine business bad  been dispatched, and only a few  weightier matter- demanding unanimous iKtt'iii icm.-iiucil to be acted uji-  on Consequently by ,'{ o'clock the conclave a(l.i'nirii"d sine die. mid Cnelo  John hurried back to the liolel to announce that he was at the service of  the ladies.

TENTH DAY.  iiomi:w.\i;ii ikipnd  A small army ol ear cleaners having  In en i    I  lo work on tlie Mmu'ida and  til.   I'l.tinian, they looked as fro-.li as nt  iiav.ug   New   York   when  our  friends  v.eni   aboard   tliat   Wednesday   nii-l.t  U.tli a sigh of relief Mrs. Hurst' miii I.  into lier favorite chair.  "li   seems   almost   like   home,"  she  said  Dmper and  Ives busied  themselves  looking to the comfort of the two girls.  and  for the moment the mother and  chaperon was left alone.  i     "Well," said  Ives when Madge had  ���������| been fussed over enough, "we are mi  i nus one of our party, but we ought to  i  a bath and a shave and a good night's  rest lie was none the worse for bis nocturnal adventure Nor did tlie Indies  show any maiked effects of the straiD  of the last two days beyond snmo natural lassitude and nervousness. But a  quiet night went far to repair the  shock and strain.  Draper found all the party assembled  in tlie hotel saloon It had originally  been planned that a couple of days  should lie spent in sightseeing, but the  adventure with James Dallon, Esq.,  and their enforced stay at his hostelry  naturally Interfered with this.  "Now. children." said bluff Uncle  John, speaking to every one in general.  , but to Florence in particular, "what  shall wo do and where shall we go? 1  see that some cards have already been  left by several people, and I have uo  doubt they will do all in their power to  entertain you charmingly." ..'      M,  "For my;party' said Mrs. Hurst, "J  don't feel like entertaining or being entertained. I'm ii perfect wreck, and  you'll never catch me so far west of  New York again." ,  "Cb, you don't know the wont yet,  iny deiii'." replied \m brut her. "Till*  has been nil iiiii'iii'ttiiiate trip. hut you  'mustn't blame the country for'our c,\-  "Small loss!" sniffed Madge contemptuously "We shall have a perfectly  lovely time going back; 'no foes with  out. no fears within,' as the old hymn  anys."  "Rather a tame ending, don't you  think so?" ventured Uncle John, looking up from his labor of arranging a  cushion for Florence's feet.  "Oh, one can never tell what will  happen," said Madge mischievously,  and then, catching the gaze of Chester  Ives, she blushed scarlet and made a  precipitate retreat Into the ladies' boudoir, whither Florence followed her  uftenn few moments.  Chester wandered into his place of  solitary confinement, as he laughing'.y  (lubber] the I'ullman. where he wo'jld  now be alone save for the preseur-c of  Alec and Henry, and thus left Mrs.  Hurst and her brother alone. John  Draper drew ud p "hair beside lu-r. and  said: ,.,  -  "Bess. I don't intend to stnrcid this  suspense any longer."        v  "Why.  what do yon  nieom   John?"  She knew perfectly well whist .was behind that declaration, hut. ���������Pj-amanllkc,  could not forbear a little cfttBke playing with the masculine mouse, and her  bigt worldly brother wag 4ust as timor  ous and uervoua over thc business in  view as the tiuiest rodent that ever  nibbled cheese in a trap. The plunge  into matrimony, like a cold bath on a  winter's morning, seemed more repellent the longer it was put off, and  where a younger and less worthy man  like Reuben Filley would have dared  all long ago John Draper, with tho  modesty of real and genuine merit, had  forborne to tesi his fate with Florence  Grauniss, not because he did not love  her dearly and devotedly, but for fear  that she regarded him more in the light  of a parent than as a possible husband.  "I mean with regard to Florence." he  replied to Mrs. Hurst's innocuous query. "I am determined to know tho  worst and that right soon."  "My dear John," she said, "my heart  has been set on this match for years���������  ever since Florence was of marriageable age. She has never niade a confidant of me, but I am certain that she  is heart free���������that Is, tliere is no other  attachment. Further than that tt  would not be right for me to say except this, that I believe you have only  to ask her to be your wife in order to  gain her consent."  A joyous light shone in Draper's eyes  as he made reply:  "I hope and pray your confidence  may tiot be misplaced." Then in a  more jocular tone he inquired:  "Are you prepared to enrry two engaged couples' back with you to New  Vork? ,1 think there is mischief nfoot  between Madge and young Ives."  "Doyou think I am blind?" replied  Mrs. Hurst. "l' confess that I bad  hoped Madge would r(lo better, but unless nil signs fail Mr. Ives will not wait  very long to find out what fate has in  store for him. I shall not interfere", ,  "I'm 'glad to hear you say, that,'  Hess," was the rejoinder, "Next to my  own happiness I hare that of Madge  and Chester at heart. I know he loves  her. and I think she cares for him."  "Indeed!" she laughed. "Pnnist compliment you on your remarkable Insight into the love affairs of others  while you are so blind to your own."  And with this parting shot Mrs. Ilurst  rose to go and make some slight toilet  preparations for dinner, which was  just then announced.  It was a rather quiet little group that  assembled once more"around tho cozy  dining table In the Miranda that night.  Tlie interior of the car was positively.,  brilliant. By all analogies the gathering should have been a merry one. yet  both,Madge and Florence were unusually quiet. Perhaps it was the natural  relaxation after the unnatural excitement of the past few days. Mrs.' flurst  saw and noted the signs' of tlie times  and openly expressed her intention of  retiring early, saying,, with a meaning  glance at her brother:'  "W������ shall feel better and brighter tomorrow after we have become used to  the old routine again." So Draper and  Ives were, left to their.clgars and some  desultory talk over Filiey's villainy.  There is nothing to equal n sonn<i  beauty sleep for composing one's  nerve's and clearing away the overnight- cobwebs. Tho' two girls were  positively blooming and bubbling over  with life and gayety when they emerged from their boudoir at the tinkling of  the breakfast br.U next morning.  Madge was full of mischief, and even  the usually, staid and dignified Florence caught the Infection, and together  they alternately bantered and bullied  Draper and Chester until Mrs. Hurst  ,camo to the rescue.  ' They lingered long after the meal,  and in nf ter years botli couples looked  back with fond' recollections to that  memorable morning. They were speeding over the level Nebraska plaias. rich  with the lush green, promises of the  coming harvest. For miles the prairie  farms spread out'on either hand, dotted with white homesteads and quiet  village stations, past which the train  tore with ceaseless and steady energy.  Breakfast ended. Mrs. Hurst found  an excuse for leitving the saloon oo the  plea of "tidying up" the boudoir. A  few minutes later Ives invited Mat-lge  to inspect the view from the rear (*oor  of tlie Pullman. ��������� So John Draper and  Florence C ran niss wore left alone. 'the  moment for them liiad come!  Florence lay back in lier scat, toying  idly with some trifle of needlework,  but her eyes were often turned to gaze  wiiidowwni'd nt tine moving panorama  without, John watched her. all the  love in Ins great (heart 6howing in his  i"'a ce  Suddenly lie rose- and leaned over tlie  back of her chair It was a prosaic  wooing amid pros'aie surroundings, but  with him it was now or never!  Men never kne w exactly what tbey  will do o" say at such times. The nwst  carefully prepared speeches are apt to  fly away when the supreme moment  comes In fact. John Draper had made  no verbal pre:<rnration. He wanted to  tell her he lov-.;d her and to ask her to  he his wife in n simple and earnest  way. as beciume his whole nature, and  then to list of, to her answer and abide  by It.  "Flnrenri?. dear girl," he began ami  then stoppx'dl.  "What 5s it?" she inquired. ITc had  taken hrr lsund, and as her uplifted  eyes nvft hits she- must have read his  secret ���������A'ith a woman's intuition, for a  rosy flush swop/ from throat to forehead find then as quickly faded. But  she conld not help him���������not yet He  dropped her h/.nd and took a few hasty  steps across the car and hack again,  then, drawin; j up his chair beside hers,  lie took her v ^resisting hand again. 0  "My dear child." he said, "we,have  known rnc!������ other a good many years���������  so arany that I sometimes fear you  onl',' regard me as a grim and gray old  fallow, vvltih no part nor purpose in  vour younjr life but that of a mere  businBsn relation."  "Say, rather, the best and kindest  and truest friend 1 have ever known,''  she replied, lifting her eyes to his. Unices he " as mistaken the true lovelight  :! WH3 <2AttlUfl������ there. '  i     "I Would not for the world disturb  1 that feeling unless 1 could put something better iu its place," he went on.  i "Florence, I have learned to love you���������  jfnot as a daughter, but as a man loves  the woman he would make his wife.  Will you marry me, Florence?"  Her glossy head bent low, but her  unresisting hand nestled in his not unwillingly. Bending nearer, he waited  for her answer. Slowly and shyly see  raised her eyes to his uud bravely au-  sweri'd:  "Yes. dear, I will."  In the Pullman another wooiug was  in progress. Chester Ives had likewise  determined to put his fate to tlie test  that very morning and went at the  matter with his usual dash and decision. For a few minutes he and Madge  stood, watching the flying prospect  from the vestibuied door. Then his  arm stole round her waist, and. putting  his lips close to her ear so as,to conquer the din of the train, he said:  "Madge, I can't go on like this any  louger. Do you know why' 1 asked  you to come out here?"  "The prisoner is not bouud to answer  any Incriminating questions," she re-  . tortcd, as saucy as ever."  !   ' "Well, I'll toll you. though I believe  you've   known   it   for   ever   so   long.  Madge, dear, one little word from you  will make me the happiest or the most  miserable fellow in the world.    I love  jou. Madge, and  1   want you for my  wife.1' Is it to be happiness or misery.  Madge���������yes or uo? -D.-a't^kcep me in'  suspense, dear."    ,   ' ��������� ,    ���������'  A   moment  she   hesitated.     All. her  bonhomie    and , phpianl ���������   Insoucietice  were pone, and she was' jm.t a simple  daughter of Eve.    Again he urged her.  ! "Which is it to be. Madge?"  Then she shyly turned her face to his  and murmured:  "The word is Yes!"  Tliere is little more to udd to this ro-  mauce'of tlie rail. Mrs. Hurst remained in seclusion for a suiliciently decent  space of time, and when she emerged  she found her brother and Fl-uviii-e sitting side by side in calm caii'.cntment,  and by thoquick. happy glance which  Hashed from' her brother's eyes she  knew that his wooing had sped fa"or-  ably.       ' "  hi a few moments Chester and  Madge appeared, both trying to appear unconcerned. Miss Madge succeeding much the better of the two.  Mrs. Ilurst read' the situation at a  glance, and John Draper, "his wits  sharpened by his own recent successful campaign, was equally prompt a������.  guessing at their secret.' ,  "Come here, you children." he cried,  rising  at   the   moment   and   drawing  Florence's   arm' within    bis.    "Come  ��������� here and  make your  peace  with our  chaperon." < ���������  "Mrs. Bradley Ilurst." he began with  mock severity. "I   beg to inform you  i!.T  nu  flicines.    >'.
