"Now, see here, my friend," said John
Proctor, his honest cyc; looking (irately
into the trainii's face, as he balanced a
dime on the tip of his finger, "I'm not
going to read you a homily on the sub
ject of labor, hut I want to present to
you a little matter of statistics. You
know, as well as I, that the territory is
swarming with men of your class. No
less than six, begging for money, have
stopped me on the street to day ;
while down there at the yard" indica
ting with his hand a row of tall lumber
piles surrounding a building in the dis
tance "we haven't had three applica
tions in a month."
"Do you imagine you would work
if you had the chance ? 1 have had
a little experience with fellows of your
sort. You have such remarkable appe
tites." He addressed him generally,
as the representative of a race. "You
work half an hour, then come around
with the nleathat you can't work on an
eirmtv stomach, draw an advance of
half a dollar on your wages, and that is
the last we ever see of you."
The man retorted so sharply that one
could almost have fancied the poor
remnant of spirit still abiding in him
stirred him to something resembling
"That's alwavs the way," he mut
tered. "Say wc won't work ; then
won't give us a show. I know we're
a pretty low down lot, but some of us
start out square enough. If a man gets
down there is no getting up again."
There was something almost pathetic
in his very sullenncss, and he shuffled
awav, his raus flapping in the strong
breeze, and ill-mated shoes clattering
an accompaniment to his gait.
"Come back here, will vou ?"
John Proctor's voice was stern, and
decisive The tramp halted, hesitated,
looked away, then shuffled back again.
"Come down to the )ard this after
noorl and I'll give vou a job. But

He has exchanged the dime for a
larger coin, and held it in his out
The man did not immediately extend
his hand to take it. In the moment or
two that had elapsed the young lum
berman thought he detected a trace of
somctning atueu 10 rcsenuui luiui: m
his bearing. But the illusion vanished
as a grimy hand closed greedily upon
the silver, and the fellow disappeared
without even troubling himself to make
any formal expression of Ins gratitude.
I ohn Proctor looked after him witl
a quizzical smile. Five minutes later
he knew his own name would be the
toast of a drunken crowd of loafers in
the saloon around the corner. ' I o be
sure, it would help to advance a certain
Quixotic reputation which had attached
itself to him since his first advent in
this little Mexican town. Hut he
steadily adhered to his creed . Grant
that ninety-nine out of a hundred of
this population were thieves anu men

Arrived at the park, a strip of land
running through the heart of the place,
the title to which was in dispute .be
tween the railroad company, a handful
of determined squatters arid the gov
ernment, John brought down the wire
fence this noon with one vigorous
kick. Kicking down the wire fence was
one of the legitimate pastimes of the
inhabitants, who could not afford to
make a detour of a mile or more to
reach their place of business, nor et
hazard garments by scaling it. These
encroachments on the part of the citi
zens had once been resisted with war
like demonstrations; but now, as
Proctor stepped through the gap, a
atient-lookiniii round-shouldered little
man advanced, trundling a wheelbarrow
laden with a huge coil of barbed wire,
and, politely erecting the tresiwssers,

scrupulously obeyed his instructions,
but a gleam of humor in his eye told
that he svmpathized with the trans
gressor. As John Proctor took his way down
through the irk in the direction of his
office, he seemed to throw off the un
pleasant reflections which had beci.
annoying him, with one shrug of bis
powerful shoulders. The voting man's
eyes" fell cheerily upon the somewhat
incongruous array of buildings that
constituted the town. He gloried in
the homely little edifices, squatting
over the gtound in various directions.

The (bought lent cheerful energy to
' hk voice, at he entered the yard and
gave some directions to Maxon, his
hard-worked book keeper and general
factotum. Proctor was deeply en
grossed in making- out an order for
several car loads of finishing lumber,
when a shadow darkened the door and
the tramp stood before him. He rould
not repress an exclamation of surprise.
The vagabond observed it, and his face
lowered as he asserted himself defiantly.
"Yes, I've come 1 " he said. "What
are you going to give me to do ? "
John Proctor put on his hat and
went with him into the yard, where an
empty car was waiting to be filled on an
order from a nciKhborinu town. He
showed the man a small slip of
paper tacked on the end, and was
abolit to explain where he would
find the materia) designated, when
the fellow threw off his coat and
deftly attacked a pile of scantling, which
happened to be the first item that was
on the list.
"Flulloal" said Proctor, gazing at
him in surprise. "You seem to know
something about this business.
" A little," returned the man, shortly.
The young lumberman took hi3 way
back to the office. A little later the
ruddy visage of Maxon looked in at
the door as he returned from dinner.
" Oh, by the way, Maxon, I have a
new man at work out in the yard.
You might keep an eve on him."
" Now, Mr. Proctor 1" exclaimed
Mavin, in hopeless protest. " Is it
another of them follows?"
"Well, on sec, lie declared he was
willing to work, and it seems only fair
to give a man a chance."
'I he broad-shouldered young pro
prietor was avowedly on the defensive.
"So far as I am concerned, of
course, it's nothing to me," observed
Maxon, dejectedly. " But it puts me
out to have vou made a laughing stot k
all over town. It's a shame well, it's
no use talking. Yes, you may depend
upon mc to keep an ejeon him, sir 1
Those fellows will bear watching I I
say, though, Mr. Proctor, haven't you
got mighty close up to that hundred?"
Half an hour later Maxon looked in
again, his face lit up with a mischievous
" Don't you want to take a look at
your new hand, now, Mr. Proctor ? He
is just like the rest of them ; sitting on
a lumber pile, all doubled up with a
pain in "
A flying Spanish conversation book
checked further intelligence, and
Maxon dodged around the corner to
escaiie other missiles. At six o clock,
when the hands came up to receive
pay for their day's labor, John Proctor
saw his protege standing off a little
distance. The man made no demand
for wages, and his employer took no
notice of him. As the men filed out
the agent of the Plumbago City train,
personal mend ol l'roctors, came
running into the office with a package
in his hand.
" Here, I'roctor, run them over
quickly and sigh this receipt. It's the
$5,000 from luarcz & bitmor. I
haven t a moment to spare.
The lumberman hastily counted the
notes, signed the name to the receipt
in a bold, dashing hand, and the agent
Left alone, Proctor drew from his
pocket a long, Russian leather pocket
book, and laid the notes carefully
inside. As he thrust this into his
breast pocket he chanced tolancc to
ward the window, and encountered the
hungry eyes of the tramp following all
of his movements from without. As
the man saw that he was detected he
paused, seemed about to speak, then
changed his mind, and sauntered away
carelessly. A vague anxiety assailed
John Proctor. It was long after bank
ing hours; there was no help for it ; he
must be the custodian of his treasure
He sat up late that night. The pay
ment of this sum was all that was
ncccsstry to make the trip a definite
and tangible matter. There was a pile
ol correspondence to be turned oil,
and a letter to be dispatched to that
little woman in Illinois, telling her to
discharge her music-pupils and make
ready for his coming. When he had
finished his letters he sat quietly foi
awhile in his big armchair. It was
very late' when he rose, and, locking
doors and windows, proceeded to the
little inner room where he slept. He
drew off his coat, and, folding it care
fully, placed it beneath his pillow.
Then he examined the barrels of an
English bull dog pistol, which hung
uon a hook beside his bed. Re
assured by this precaution, he sank
into a heavy sleep.
Several hours before a man had
crawled upon a low pile of planks,
flanked by two others of towering
height. As he stretched himself at full
length, with a bundle of shakes for a
pillow, he philosophically reflected that
such a bed was not to be despised.
He was not ill-qualified to judge, for
his experience had been wide and
diversified, and he had learned to weigh
.1 .it. . i
mc most uencaie points 01 variance

He had traveled half-way across the
continent without once knowing the
shelter of a civilized roof. He had
tented beneath the fragrant shades of
orange groves in southern California,
and in waving fields of golden crain :

rado desert, where the mercury msrVs

and choking with the hot dust of the
arid waste, waking at daylight to find
the delusive mirnge mocking him in
the distance. He had sunk down ex
hausted on the barren plains of Ari
zona, and roused to find himself
stabbed in a thousand places by the
cactus needles, cast upon htm by the
malicious breeze ever lured on by the
sweet face of a child who had smiled
farewell through a mist of tears,
The quiet of the place, the gently
stirring air, odorous with the fragrance
of the pine woods, and the sleepy
twinkle of the stars overhead, and the
weariness of the muscles unaccustomed
to labor, soon lulled him into slumber.
A little later, two glowing sparks of
tire seemed to guae aown the railroad
track, steal around the office, and die;
appear within the long drying shed at
its rear. During their progress these
sparks of fire occasionally described
magnificent curves in the air, in Uic
accentuation of certain rhythmical
utterances in the corrupted Spanish of
the Mexican tongue. I he lowest

John Proctor awoke that night to
find himself assailed by a foe mightier
than his feeble imagination had pic
tured. He tried to rise, but found
himself unable, oppressed by a terrible
sense of suffocation from dense volumes
of smoke which filled the air, through
which vast sheets of flame darted their
forked tongues toward him. Suddenly
the wall of flame and smoke was
parted, and the face of the tramp bent
over him. He was rouchlv shaken.
pulled off the bed, half (fragged, half
rarricd throiiuh the little private oltice,
and dragged into the room beyond,
where the lire had hegun its work ol
devastation. 'I hen voice and memory
came back, and he shouted : " My
notes I In my coat pocket under my
pillow let me go I"
For an answer he was violently pro
pelled forward into the arms of some
men, eagerly crowding through the
flaming doorway. He struggled to
free himself from their grasp. He
fought with them, cursed them, and
finally broke down and cried like a
child. Maxon's fierce tones recalled
him to himself.
"Why, man, do you think we would
let you go into that fiery furnace again?
Seel There goes the roof now."
With a gentle, waving motion the
roof seemed to slowly vibrate to and
fro, then sank down with a sudden
crash, and a flying column of sparks
celebrated its downfall.
With half dared senses John Proctor
stared about him, and hisgarc wandered
to the sky above, where an angry, crim
son glow had blotted out the stars and
rested on the distant mountain chains,
weirdly reflecting from their seamed
fronts and craggy peaks the glare of the
unrighteous flames. Would she admire
Surely, it was a spectacle to enchant
the eye of unprejudiced spectators,
whose whole possessions were not being
sacrificed to the effect. He turned to
the scene before him. There was still
something to be done. The cream of
the stock had been destroyed, but un
less some piles of lumber to the right
of the building were speedily removed
the fire would communicate with the
whole outside stock, stretched for
several hundred yards along the rail
road track. He turned to the crowd
of men who stood there, inactive,
gazing upon the scene :
"Come on and help us save the
A couple of dozen men came
promptly forward. The lumberman
saw, to his surprise, that the volunteers
were almost exclusively composed of
the so-called professional men of the
town. the local officials of the rail
road, a well-dressed set ol fellows, com
monly viewed with contemptuous eyes
by the hard-working portion of the
population, presented themselves to a
man. The tall form of Judge Cheese
man, a stiff and somewhat aristocratic
legal luminary, loomed up in their
midst. A quiet-looking little real es
tate agent leaped upon a pile of shingles
and began to fling the bunches down
to a German chemist below. The two
rival editors (for the least of New Mexi
can villages usually boasts its miniature
newspaperdom), who had exchanged
shots on Gold avenue the previous day,
glared cordially at each other along the
lengths of timbers they undertook to
transport to a place of safety. The
laboring population offered scarcely a
representative, save in the person of a
few contractors and mechanics, who
had learned to, know and like the
pleasant young lumberman.

Worn and wearied, John Proctor sat
down to rest upon the wheel of his own
copying press. A gradual change had
taken place in the ranks of the loungers.
Many of the spectators of the night had
gone home to refresh themselves with
a nap, and the remainder were re en
forced by a straggling corps of men
who had slept all through the turmoil
and excitement. One of these, a stout
fellow with a big diamond blazing in
his shirt bosom and a mimic beer-bottle
suspended from his massive watch
chain, was recounting -his experience,
as all people revel in detailing their
individual impressions on the occasion
of a fire.
" You see, I was sleeping like a log,
when Lizzie caught hold of my shoulder,
and she savs : ' Bob, Bob, wake up, I
tell you. The sky is all afire, and there
must be an eclipse.' I reached up to

" Now I think of it, returned Maxon,
he went back a minute; but he got oi'.t

thought a the moment a piece of frill
ing limber hit him, but he scrambled
off fast enough"
A dread' suspicion assailed John

it sturdily. Yet all day long, aj( he

When night cane it wis nectMtary for
some one to stay and guard the ruins,
for if the wind would risc,some smould

into a blirr, find the remainder of the
stock swept away. Maxon, wearied
and hollow-cycu, offered his services.
" Not a bit of it, Maxon. Go home
to your wife and babies. I have en
gaged a man."
Proctor did not add that the watch
man he had engaged was no other than
himself, but when the rest had gone
home he remained there alone. Sep
arated as it was from the rest of the
(own, by night it was a dreary solitude.
A fiery spark, miles away over the level
plain, developed into the headlight of
the locomotive of the evening tram,
which thundered past on its way to the
depot below. I he moon came up and

John Proctor, who had been pacing
slowly to and fro, sat down upon
bunch of shingles and buried his face
in his hands. He knew, what not even
Maxon had guessed, that this disaster
had wrought his irreparable ruin. It
would require every cent of Ins insur
ance money to settle his outstanding
liabilities, for he had done business on
the rushing western plan, and had car
ried a stock out of all proportion to his
capital. If he could only have saved
that five thousand dollars, or if he had
not been so ambitious I Annie had
been ready poor little girl I She had
even proposed bringing her piano to
this raw southern town, and eking out
their income with the result of her own
labors. On one point he was resolved.
Whenever he got square with the world
again, he would put his pride in
his pocket, and, humbly presenting
himself before the little woman, ask her
to share his fortunes, for better or
worse. O God I how long will it be ?
A sharp groan escaped his lips.
Suddenly he arose and stood erect.
His quick ear had caught the sound of
some heavy body slowly moving over
"Who is there?"
"Only me. Is that you, boss ? "
John Proctor bent forward and per
ceived a man slowly crawling along in
the shadow of a pile of joists. As the
figure emerged into the moonlight he
saw that the fellow dragged one leg
helplessly after him. His suspicions
melted away beneath his natural
warmth of heart.
"Are you hurt ? "
"Only a falling timber, boss, but the
fire got into my eyes, and I can't see

feet and stopped, turning a little upon
his side, his head propped up with his

in an absent way.

asked the other, sharply.
The man answered reluctantly, and
almost in a tone of apology.
"You see, sir down there among

John Proctor was a man given more
to action than speech. He addressed
the man now in clear, decided tones.
"Do you think you could hold on to

The office and bar-room of the
hotel a pretentious edifice of Kastlake
architecture held its usual quota of
respectable loafers when John I'roctor
entered with the uncouth figure on his
back. A curcle of laughter ran through
the crowd. The majority fancied the
young lumberman s brain Had been
turned by his recent losses, and that
his dementia had taken the form of a
violent development of the weakness
with which he had hitherto been ac
credited. The laughter suddenly
ceased when the young man went
straight to the clerk, saying, in clear,
ringing tones :
"Give me the best room you have.
This man, who saved my life last night,
is badly hurt. Some of you" turning
to the idlers "go at once for the sur
geon of the A.cliison road.''
A dozen men sprang forward to re
lieve him of his burden, to help him
to carry the poor fellow to a comforta
ble room, where he was gently laid
upon the bed The sufferer received
these attentions in silence. His dim
eyes stared incredulously about the
room, and into the kindly faces bend

should happen to him. How long
would it last ? Would they let him
have one good night's rest before turn
ing him out again ? When once more

through sagebrush, mosquito and soap

dream. But what was this The
