They hurried forward, talking excitedly.
"I heard voices!" said one.
"Yes," I heard them, too," returned
the other, "and a shriek of terror!"
"It was a woman's voice! Ah,
For at that moment they stumbled
and nearly fell over the prostrate
form of a man who lay, pinned to the
earth, by one of the great trunks of
the scycamore tree, which had fallen
all across him. The pick-ax he had
been using was still in his grasp, and
the spade had been flung to a little

Harold, is it not like Fate itself, or

horrible! How awfull"
She covered her face with her hands
and turned away shaken and shuddering.
And, truly, something very strange
and awful had occurred.
The sycamore, in falling, had flung
that part of the trunk on which wa:i
carved the outline of the Indian
woman's figure in such a way, that it
fell with all its force against the head
of her cruel and treacherous descendant;

"He is past all lielp or further punishment,"
said Moray, drawing
Dolores gently away from the fatal
spot. "Let me take you home,
dearest; we will send men here at
once to do all that is left to do, now.
But the woman! It must have been
bis wife that was with him; it was
certainly a woman's voice that gave
that terrible cry!"
"Nothing will hurt Olive Gaye!"
said Dolores, bitterly. "Such people
are like cats; they always alight
on their feet. But we will look about

Bat long before they reached the
house, they were met by Mr. and
Mrs. Travers and a troop of their
work people, who were out in search
of them; and the brief excitement j
following the excitement having al-!
w rea<ly subsided, the men were more
than willing for a new and more legitimate
excitement in extricating the
body of the dead man from the fallen
tree, which had served as an avenging
thunderbolt to the spirit of the
long-forgotten Indian princess.

lthough diligent search had been
made in every direction; and -Mrs.
Travers, with Dolores, having been
assured that all signs of the recent
tragedy had been removed, stood beside
the spot where the false Clarence
Stanley and still more false Carlos
Mendoza had met his death.
"What an exquisite morning," said
Dolores. "It is difficult to realize

torn asunder by the earthquake;

"Yos," he said, musingly, "the

of the great lost mine of the

fact, as this will prove; and this bit of
land, 'or several acres round about,
belongs to the Senorita Mendoza, the
last and only remaining portion of all

Mrs. Travers caught Dolores in a
close embrace aud hugged her tiU she
begged for mercy.
"Oil, you darling girl! You great
bonanza! You will have jewels outrivaling

"Give me the hearts of those I

but even among bride3 it is rare tc
see such beauty as that of Dolores oe
her wedding day.
Lord Moray had entreated for an
early date for the marriage; for he
desired to return at once to England,
that he might be present,
with the only comfort of love
and sympathy, when his sister learned
of her lover's death; and Dolores
could find no word of refusal.
She did not wish, indeed, to fiird
any; their love was perfect; a flower
of Paradise which could neither wither
nor improve. There was no cause for
delaying the marriage, and it was Mrs.
Travers who asked for a reasonable
time to elapse.
A bride could not be married without
a trousseau, she declared, and
such a bride? Dolores should nave a
trousseau worthy of her beauty and of
the Mendoza treasure. And suoh a
trousseau, it was easy to see, could
not be procured in a day.
And Mrs. Travers had her way, as

But Dolores found happiness even
in this delay; for Polly Hamilton had
speedily followed her letter, as she
had promised to do; and, as Mrs.
Travers declared, any lover less perfect
than Lord Harold would have
been jealous, even though his rival
was only a girl. For herself, she announced
that Bhe was furiously jealous,
or should have been if she hadn't
almost fallen in love with Polly Hamilton
also. For Polly was once more
the gay, sweet, ardent, hopeful girl
she had been of old; perhaps more
gentle, more subdued than formerly,

that has learned its own strength

The days and weeks passed as in a

and tranquil that even its excess did
"The chief bridemaid is almost as
lovely as the bride," said Mr. Travers
on the wedding day.
Polly and Dolores, a little apart
itom all others, not admitting even
the bridegroom at this farewell communion,
were clinging to each other
in the embrace of parting love; each
feeling this to be the only painful
moment they had known since their
"You must stop admiring Polly
Hamilton," Mrs. Travers said, laughing,
"or I shall be jealous. I never
knew you so enthusiastic about any

'Oh, she isn't!" exclaimed his wife.
"Don't suppose it. Polly Hamilton
is heart-whole, though she may have
been shaken a little, but not enough
to harm her. She is just the kind of
woman to profit by an experience such
as she has had, and few girls fall in
love with the right man the first time.
All women are not so fortunate, sir,
as your wife has been."
And Mrs. Travers would have been
confirmed in her opinion could she
have heard the words Polly was then
saying to Dolores.

Rita," said Polly, "and never more so

SuKBextionR For Plowing.
When the plow is hard to hold it is
safe to say that it is hard work for
the teams to draw it. This may be because
of roots or stones. In which case
the cause is obvious, but if not something
else is wrong, and the cause
should be found and the trohble remedied.

It would seem that any farmer should
know if his plow "run her nose into
the ground," so that he found he had
to hear his weight on the handles, or
pulled out so he had to lift on it to
keep it in, or whether it took too wide
a furrow or too narrow a one, and
should know how to remedy it, yet we
have known a farm hand to work all
day with a plow when he was putting
out more strength every hour than he
would have used in a day's work with
the same plow after he had hitched
the team properly. And the team was
as tired as he was.?The Cultivator.
One of the acknowledged experts in
this qountry .on the subject of rlpenj
ing cream is Professor H. W. Conn,
of Connecticut, who is the introducer
j of the system of artificial butter cultures
and the discovered of the famous
bacteria which produces the June butter
flavor. Iu his new bulletin No.
21 he discusses various methods of
compelling cream ripening by use of
starters and butter cultures. The
Danish method is to pasteurize the
cream and then add a pure culture
of the right kind of bacteria. This
produces a mild-flavored butter, wliicb,
however, is not so well liked in this
country as that produced by natural
starters. To make a natural starter
take the milk from a perfectly healthy
cow. The first few jets of milk are
rejected and the rest drawn into a
sterilized vessel, which is immediately
covered, heated to a proper temperature
and the inilk passed through a
separator. The skim milk thus obtained
is set aside in a covered sterilized
vessel to sour. When well
soured it serves as a starter for the
cream-opening process. Iu conclusiou,
the professor observes that the use

A Cow's Food and Her Milk., , v/
I have known wild onions to spoil
-completely the milk of cows which
had eaton of them; that turnipS fed
to cows have a similar effect; that even
when stored on the feeding floor In
the stable they have had a bad effect on
milk and butter and even cheese. Every
dairy man or woman knows how the
white clover improves the character
of the milk in quality and flavor,
while cottonseed meal does the same,
but not favorably for all tastes. The
same applies to the gluten meals,
which effect both flavor and color of

witnesses to these facts might completely
demolish the suggestion that
dairy experts assure us, that "odors or
flavors do not come through the cow." i
If they do not, what then causes the
great variation in flavor of milk,
cheese and butter?
But there is sure proof that th?
food not only affects the quality and
flavor of milk products, but distinctly
affects the chemical reactions of the
fat of the milk of cows. I have
tested cottonseed oil and the butter
made from it and tli? butter adulterated
with it. Tlie Washington Department
of Agriculture did the same,
and Dr. Taylor, then the chemist of
the department, showed by colored
illustrations that the reactions of butter
so adulterated, either by actual
addition of the oil to the cream in the
churning or by feeding the cottonseed
meal, were precisely the same.?II.

It undoubtedly saves a good deal of
hard work when building fences
where posts are required to sharpen
the end of the post and with a huge
wooden beetle drive it deeply into
the moist soil in spring as far as possible.
But the plan has also its disadvantages,
which are developed after
a year or two, when frost lifts
up the post every winter, so that if
the top of the fences be heavy the
post is soon in a tumble-down condition.
The failure of the driving down
plan of setting the post comes from the
fact that usually the post is only
driven down to the depth of the annual
freezing in winter. When it
comes to the "hard pan," where frost
has not penetrated before, the post
cannot be driven farther. Its point
turns up or the top of uie post will
be split by the severe pounding it
will receive. Yet unless the post is
set deeper than the frost will penetrate
it is very difficult to make it stand
erect until decay has done its work.
In a soil where there is a deep underdrain
posts may be set nearly to
its depth by driving, and remain Arm
so long as the post lasts. The plan
is to either build n pile of earth around
the post so as to turn the water away
from it, or to bore a hole through the
post somewhere near the bottom, and
drive a wooden peg the size of the
hole through it and sticking out on
either side o far as the post will
allow. On this peg set a three-cornered
block that can be nailed both
to the peg and the post. 'Jhis makes

turned away from the post, and can
get off through the underdrains, the
fence will remain firm as long as the
post does not rot. When it does rot
it will most likely he at the surface,
for there the changes of temperature
and from wet to dry are more frequent
than they are deeper in the soil. In j
most post fences the part above
ground is much longer tnan that helow.
It sometimes pays to take up
post and hoard fences that have been
long in the ground, and after putting j
some (lumen earnone jicki on parrs
that have decayed to prevent further
progress, set them with the top part
in tli<> soil. If this top is well dried j
it should he immersed in diluted carbolic
acid before being placed in tiie

likely to decay quickly.?American
