Two coal black horses in glittering
harness danced before the natty road
cart, and were deftly driven by a rather
bored looking, blonde whiskered young
man in a cool, baggy coat and a straw
hat, while upon the slightly raised seat
in the rear was a most imposing elderly
personage, in a spick and span suit of
dark blue with gilt buttons, topped by a
tal, roseted hat. Jimmy gave but one
glance at the former, then turned to the
other with wide curtous eyes.
"It's the duke, sure," he muttered.
"My! ain't he a s .veil, though! Look's as
if he'd growed round a ramrod, he's so
stiff. Well, I believe I'm glad I ain't
one he! there'll be a bupt up, sure," and
Jimmy was ofl like a shot.
A "bust up" indeed, for the gay horses
shied fiercely at the sudden flapping of
a sail spread out to dry, dashed the ofl
wheel against a rock, and canting the
light cart over eo far as to tip Jimmy's
"duke" to the ground. He came down
rather heavily upon the clean sand, his
gorgeous hat rolling to meet an incom
ing breaker, but the driver seemed too
much occupied with his plunging horses
to pay any attention to his aristocratic
A little surprised at his coolness and
unconcern, Jimmy ran for the hat, and
returned it with his best bow, the
"duke" meanwhile brushing off the sand
and muttering between his teeth:
"Deuced hunlurky! Spoilt my trousers,
I'll wager. Oh, thanks, boy, is if'urt
hany?" referring to the hapless tile.
"No, sir, Mr. Duke, not al'," stammer
ed Jimmy,rather at a los3 for the proper
formula to use, "was your majestry
The duke frowned, and muttering,
"liuityour cuau, nowr turned away,
leaving Jimmy to feel decidedly re
pulsed. The horseB were quieted by this time,
however, and their driver turned to ask,
."Hurt much. Milliard?" (Jimmy
thought he said "my lord."(-'Tm afraid

"Pretty cool!" thought Jimmy, "I spos
ed these furrin' servants was better
trained; he acts and talks every bit as
keerless as pa's hired man didn't even
jump out to help the duke up, I swan!
"Say, Mr. Coachy," he suggested here,
"my pa's got a blacksmith shop just on a
ways pr'aps the duke would like to go
there and get the wheel mended; it's the
only place anywhere within a 'mile,
He stopped, for there was a queer ex
pression on Coachy's face, which rather
staggered him a blank stare, succeeded
by a sudden, brilliant, amused light in
the handsome eyes, which was almost
more than a smile.
"That you, my boy," he responded,
pleasantly, "that's a good suggestion; if I
walk the horses I think we can keep the
wheel on till we get there. Jump up
here, and point out the way, will you?"
Nothing loath, Jimmy started forward,
with a look toward the "duke" for ap
probation, but that hich and mishtv ner-
epnage had resumed his place and posi
tion, seemingly so oblivious of every
thing that the boy thought.
"Sposothey never trouble him with
small matters, but just fix 'im up and
send in the bill!" and quickly mounted
beside his new friend.
They rode in silence awhile, then,
drawing a little closer, Jimmy whispered,
"If'twantfor the duke, now, I could
let you into no end of fun. I'll take pa's
man all the afternoon to mend that
wheel, and there's goin' to be a big wed
din' clost to our house it's my cousin
Vine's (Malviny, you know), and she's
the prettiest gal in the country, too, You
see if she ain't ! Wouldn't you like to go?"
Again that brilliant look.
"Xo be sure I would, and I will 1" de
cidedly. "ATethey going to dance?"
"Bet yer life 1 There's two fiddlers and
a cordion man a comin', and it's goin' to

"Decidedly jolly I" laughed Coachy.
"But whai'll you do with the duke?"
pursued Jimmy, edging closer and drop
ping his voice to a whisper. We could
fix him up a sort o' throne with grand
pa's chair and the buffalo robe, and let
him look on, I B'pose, if he would but,
you see, 'twould spoil all the fun they'd

les," said Coachy, laughing outright,
but quickly checking himself, "Yes, I
see it is a dilemma!" "Say!' with
. another hitch, "couldn't you get the old
duffer back to the hotel, somehow, and
you stay with us? These swells 'most
allers can ride horseback now, we've
got an old army saddle he could put on
one o' them bosses. You seem sort of a
favorite with him. Can't you manage?"
"Well, I"ll try said Coachy, thought
fully, in spite of the broad smile upon
his lips smile of Batwfaction at the
approaching pleasure, Jimmy felt sure
"I'll suggest it at least; he's generally
quite tractable." "Do!" said the boy,
"there's our shop, eee? the red one with
the paint most off, and that's our house
down in the hollow. Vine lives up on
that hill iee the barn? Ain't it a whop
per? Best barn in the county, everybody
"Coachy" smilingly agreed with this
modest opinion, and, bringing his horses
to a sudden stop, sprang lightly to the
ground, the '"dake" descending with
much celerity, and stepping along to
ward their heads.
"My boy," said "Coachy" Quickly.
"Hold the horses, please, I wish to
speak with the duke," adding the last
words in a lower tone, and with a sua
The two men stemmed aside, and Jim
my saw that "Coachy" seemed to be giv
ing his highness some very good advice,
for thelatternodded acquiescence, touch
ing his hat in his stately, highbred man
ner, and walking briskly away.
"I've fixed him," said "Coachy" turn
ing to the boy. "He'll be only too glad
to get back to the comforts of the hotel,
and then, my boy, for fun."
The bored look was all gone now, while
the laugh and tone which accompanied
these words were as gay and boyish as
"First, we'll have dinner," said Jimmy,
with a business air, " and you'll eat at
the first table, too, our hired men allers
do. You ain't used to that to home, be
"Coachy's lips twitched so convulsive
ly at this that Jimmy felt afraid he had
offended him, and hastened to add,
"Not much loss, either, I'll bet. I'd
hate to have to sit up so solemn with
tnnt old prig and mince and bow and
chew an hour on every mouthful. No

of elbow room, and five minutes 'fore
the train starts, and I don't ask no odds
of any duke do your"
"No, I don't think I do, as hungry as I
am now," was the spirited reply, and
they passed into the house. Jimmy's
introductions were original, at least, but
he made the family understand who his
new friend was, though upon asking for
his name the latter had said, hastily.
'"Oh, call me Coachy, asyou began; it's
as good a name as any," and Coachy he
was for the rest of the day.
They sat to dinner "pa" and the
hired man in shirt sleeves, and redolent
of that honest but moist accompaniment
to toil promised to sinful man in the be
ginning, "ma" and Sallie in curl-papers
and calico, but in spite of these the lat
ter elicted more than one glance from
the new comer.
Her curl-papers were not obtrusive,
but her dark, soft eyes, pale, oval cheeks,
and sweet, grave lips, parting too seldom
over the dainty teeth, like new corn in
the ear, most assuredly were.
Her sad, listless manner and sober
loveliness excited a feeling of tender cur
iosity in her vis-a-vis, who was, how
ever, hungry enough after his ride in
the sharp, salt air to enjoy his dinner,
despite his sympathetic heart twinges,
and bravely attacked the baked pork
and beans, boiled potatoes and cabbage,
pie, johnnycake, doughnuts, and cheese,
which jostled each other on his capa
"Spose thet juke o' your'n hes a

an instant rest; " 't least I've heerd say
so. Wonder ef them big burgs really
thinks they hes compartments in their
stummicks? 'Pears so," he added, with
fine scorn at the folly of this whim, and
Coachy only smiled meekly, eating the
round of his trencher, and enjoying
every mouthful with zest that surprised
him into silence.
In fact, no one said much all were
too busy and in a remarkably short
time tne table was cleared, and each
left for his next affair without excuse or
"Is your cousin Malvina prettier than
your sister?" asked the visitor, in a care
less tone as the new frierrds strolled to
ward the stables a little later.
"Prettier? You bet! She's got no end
of fun in her, and the snappingest eyes
you ever see. Sallie used to be pretty,
too, but she's no good any more since
Joe's gone away."
"Who's Joe?" aBked Coachy, selecting
a superb cigar from a case whose graven
crest immediately caught Jimmy's quick
"Hullo! What's that?" he asked, cu
riously. "Oh, it's the duke's," was the immedi
ate answer. "I sometimes carry it for
him, and take a cigar formy trouble; it's
heavy you see."
"Knowed he was lazy, the old coon,"
came the contemptuous answer. "'Who's
Joe?' oh?' oh, her sweetheart and a .
fellow, too, I vow! But he didn't hev a
red copper to bless himself with, and pa

A.n hour later found them at the big
new barn, looking in through the wide
open doorway, the guest taking in the
scene with ttie enjoyment both of a nov
ice and an ariist. The clean, white, pine
floor, the high-ceiled walls gavlv draped
witn festoons of arbor vita, caught up
tne nuge, glowing masses of blood-red
or rose-pink peonies, formed a novel
stage, while the musicians' stand was
improved from the walls of the horse
stalls, with a few loose boards laid across
upon which sat the two fiddlers and the
'cordion man, the latter calling oft the
swift changeB of "money-musk," which
a half-dozen sets of rustic swains and
maidens, led of by the blushing bride
and groom, were gaily dancing below.
All this, with .the gapeing, laughing
crowd of lookers-on without, the'r long,
slant afternoon Bhadows blotting out the
hazy September sunshine on the grass,
formed a picture worthv of a Claude
Lorraine. Coachy looked on eagerly,
unmindful of Jimmy's impatient nudges
and whispers, to the effect that "abart
of new sweet cider was bein' ladled out
just 'round the corner," and at length,
spying Sallie, sweeter than ever, in a
simple white dress, he broke away with
scant excuses and hurried to the spot

Surely no duke of them all could have
made a courtlier bow than did Coachy,
doing ready homage to the everlasting
sovereignty of beauty as he begged the

while she, starting from her reverie,
smiled, and frankly met her eyes as he
led her to their place upon the smooth
The afternoon passed rapidly away, a
scene of careless merry-making and gay
good humor to the uninstructed eye, but
pregnant with dramatic situations to the
initiated. What else was the meaning
of Peter's grim frown and flashing eyes
as he looked gloomily 'on while Sallie
and her new friend danced, or talked in
corners, apparently engaged in a most
desperate flirtation; or .the evident agi
tation of "pa and ma," who vainly tried
to recall her to duty by two transparent
hints and innuendoes? Even Jimmy
having had all the cider he could swal
low, was sick and sulky, and thought it
"real mean o'Sal" to take up his com
pany like. As for the girl she had, for
once, thrown off all restraint and given
hereelf up to the'imr else of the moment,
for, though she could not tell how it
haDpened. the third dance had not end'
ed before she had poured her whole
story into this stranger's ears, and even

her fair neck. On his side he had vol
unteered the information that the duke
was expecting soon to visit the very
mines in question, as he had an interest
there, and wished to make a quiet trip
through that country.
" ind oh I if vou should see Joe,"
cried the sweet girl with an upward
look that melted her partner's heart,
"give him my love, please, and tell him
I'll never marry old Peters never!
They parted warmly, as became good
friends with a secret between them.
"I'm so glad Jimmy brought you," she
said, as he held her hand longer than
was exactly necessary, out under the
big lilac-bush, in the gloaming. "You've
brought me real comfort, somehow, and
I'll not soon forget it. , It's lucky the
duke didn't come, though, for he would
have spoilt it all but how will you get
home to the hotel?"
"Oh, Mil the duke, I mean kindly
promised to Bend the carriage for me; I
presume it's waiting now at your gate.
Well, I must go. Oh! here's Jimmy.
Good-bye, and may the Lord bless you."
But the young man walked very
slowly away, and looked back more than
once "to see the young girl standing
still," waving his hand as if to be a
friend and equal, while a half mournful
sigh welled up from his heavy heart.
Jimmy heard it and frowned.
"Say Coachy," he said, in grieved ac
cents, "I think you've treated me mighty
mean, that's all! And what's more, if I
ever get a chance to tell Joe about Sal's
actions I'm going to you bet. I want
you to understand that my sister ain't
a-goin' to run away with no coachman,
if he does belong to a duke, and you can
just put that in your pipe and smoke it!"
Coachy gave him a glance that would
have annihilated anything but an Amer
ican boy, burst into a curt laugh and
then bit his lips into silence. "Jimmy,"
he eaid gently, after a pause, "when
you're older you'll know more. Mean
while, here's something to help you en
joy yourself while you're young," and
supping a Dig rouna coin into young
ster's palm, he pprang into the landan,
called out a gay good-by, and was driven
The astonished youth looked after the
audacious and much-privileged servant
with round eyes, which finally dropped
to the piece of metal in his hand. He
held it up in the waning light.
It's gold," he whispered, excitedly,
"and not a silver dollar, as I s'poeed, and
there's two X's on it. Jerusalem enck
ete! it is a $20 gold piece if it's a cent!"
Four months had passed away, and
the farm house in the hollow crouched
under its snowy cohering, snug and safe,
while away in the western mountains
men toiled as they could, and cursed the
snow and the cold which lengthened
and hardened their desperate task of
wresting from its hiding place that gold
which to them meant home and fireside,
with the presence of loved ones far
away. Poor Joe, undaunted by fatigues
and sufferings which would have driven
stronger men to the wall, still kept at
work, spurred on by the thought of a
pair of dark, wistful eyes which he
knew were looking hopefully for him
each day. But his pile waB still very
small, and hope seemed almost ready to
How could be be sure she was faithful,
after all, he thought, gloomily trudging
homeward in the cheerless twilight,
with his pickax on his shoulder and his
eyes on the ground. Such a pretty girl
wouldn't wait long for suitors, and
hello! what's that?
A long cry of "Hel-p!" came faintly
from the gloomy, slanting ravine at his
right, but thought he peered anxiously
down he could see nothing. "Hello!"
he called back, in a ringing voice, and
the same cry, but fainter, came again
Using his clumsy pickax for an alpen
stock, he crept cautiously down the rough
declivity, calling out at intervals, and
following the sound of the answering
call, until he reached a clump of bushes
by a narrow trail or bridal-path,in whose
shadow lay a man, evidently sorely hurt.
Joe bent over him.
"Well, stranger, what is it?" he asked,
in the careless tone of a man habitated
to danger, but with a certain tenderness
not native to the ordinary miner.
"To be brief, I fell among thieves, and
am about done for," said the wounded
one, faintly. "There is a stab in my side
if you cold stop the blood I "
He ceased abruptly overcome with
faintnees, while Joe with ready skill
soon found and stanched the wound
with a part of the stranger's own gar
ments; then, as he looked vaguely
around, wandering what he would do
next, the snow-laden bushes rustled, and
a figure crawled cautiously out at his
feet. One moment brought Joe's pickax
to a ready poise, and with the next it
would have decended with ciushing force
on the crawlers skull, when his whining
yoice broke in:
"Don't 'it me, don't! His 's grace
much Jurt? 'Ab the" robbers went ?
Joe's pickax decended harmlessly.
"Wno be yon, you sneak? and who's

"He's the duke of .sir; hand I'm

I took shelter in a 'ollow log, sir, for the
time, his e reaiy mucn 'urtf"
"Killed, I guess," said Joe shortly.
"You coward! Why didn't you come and
help him, before it was to late ? Here,
help me lift him so; we'll take him to

Joe, a few hours .later, had the satisfac
tion of seeing his guest warmed, fed, and
comfortable, his cut sewed up, and him
self in a fare way to recovery, though
still weak from loss of blood. As utterly
weary, the miner stepped silently to the
side of his bunk.to give him one last re
assuring glance before seeking his own
hard bed on the floor, the sufferer reach
ed out a white, delicate hand and caught
Joe's hard, brown one in a warm clasp.
"My friend what is your name?" he
"Joe Brady, you lordship," said the
honest fellow, his heart fluttereing a little
at being thus addressed by a live aristo

possible? Kismet, as I live ! I must be

fate," and they closed again, wearily.
"Light-headed, I see," muttered Joe.turn-
ing away. " 'Tain't much wonder, either,
all he's gone through to-night. Well,
he'll be all right to morrow, I hope,"
and in five minutes Joe a snores mingled
with the doughty Millard's on the floor.
The duke's was a mere flesh-wound,
though a deep one, and a few weeks
found him able to return to Denver and
civilization, after tempting providence
or, rather two horee-thieves by his
needless winter journey over the moun
tain. But in the daily intercourse of
that humble cabin, among those homely,
big-hearted miners, in the solitude of
the everlasting hills, class distinction

His very refinement and whole-souled
gentlemanliness did them a world of
good, and left the little camp the better
for his visit.
Before he left he took Joe apart for a
long walK, and when they parted it was
like brothers, with moistened eyes and
a long, close grasp of the hand, while as
duke and servant rode slowly out of
camp they were followed by hearty
"Good lucks" aud "Good-bys" from the
whole community, ending in three

qried, reining the steeds to a standstill.
"I want you to direct me to the black
smith's shop in the hollow."
"Say, you ain't mad then, sir mister

a relieved tone, springing into the cart.
