THE ROSE DIAMOND.
., . . T , , ... ,
Ned Glrard and I wero leaving the din-
mondflelda in ncoaoh drawn hytilx horses.
Wo had secured a roso diamond whloh m
a fortune Wo hod boon admiring It whan
a man dashed In upon us, solzcd Hand
mado away. Of courso we gavo tho alarm
as quickly ns wo could rugaln our scat-
tend Ideas; hut. though half the malo
dlscouraced. had sold our claim toacou-l
pie of newcomors for about $1,G00, and,
with thoso composing our prcsont stafto
ooaoh party, had takon passago for Wel
lington, intending to return homo.
Besides a small, spectacled man, who rep
resented hlniBolf as a sort of colportour for
a religious seolety at Capo Town, our fellow
Dassoncrcrs composed two diamond bro-
tr. tnthnr with a vounir and very boast-
Tho latter had boon very successful, and
It was with feelings of envy wo heard him
relrtto tho result of two weeks' work In o
deserted claim, whero, as ho Informed us
with many profane nssoveratlons, he had
struck n "pookot" from which ho had tak
en stones whoso valuo he declared was at j
least 120,000. Thoso ho carrlod In a licit
about his waist, togothor with n consider
able sum of money from tho Kilo of liln
claim, as ho Bald, whllo girded to ultlior
hip was a heavy rovolvor as safoguard
gainst posslblo attacks from rood agouts.
"They wouldn't play any of their gamos
on mo," replied McArthur, touching tho
butt of his rovolvor.
Tho palo bluo eyes of tho llttlo man,
who boro tho namo ot Smith, twinkled
ever so slightly behind his spectacles.
"My dear sir," he exclaimed In deprecat
ing tones, "you surely would not commit
tho awful crlmo of murder, oven to pro
vent tho loss of tho filthy lucro vrhloh
Bnt his protestation was cut short by
tho sudden and abrupt stoppage ot tho
sUigo and n torrlflod yoll from the Krow
boy who drove. Almost at tho sarao mo
inont a man sprang from either sldo of tho
road with n lovelod rifle.
Tho valinut MoArthur dropped on tho
bottom of tho coach with a cry of terror,
which was focbly echoed by Mr. Smith. In
obedience to a srutt command MoArthur
handed his revolvers to the smullor of tho
two road agcnt9, who, scorning to bo as
sured that no weapons wero worn by any
othor of tho party, caused us lo ullfht.
Nod and myself had about js.oo between
UHiuidu bill of oxolmngo on a bunk In
Capo Town, which tho tailor robber Uok
from us. McArthur raved and stonnod ns
ho was relieved of his belt.

At last ho came -to a bit or wash lcntncr

perfect rose diamond that both Ned and
wysoll uttered a simultaneous rry or iiriou
ishment and delight, as well wo might,
for It was our stolen diamond.
"Yon aro In luck, gontlcmou," (julotly

Arthur, whoso faco was purplo with rago,
