A lix .re golden, and tho dark olivo
l'f tbe unibrageoui trees shone of

1ie clustered lounginglj about tho

.Shut up, comrades! Hero ho is."
A lui in, uncommonly tall, stal
wart a- an oi,k, straight as a pine,
.jviiiiccs toward the group. He
prides to a vacant chair in silence.
There's nothing prepossessingly
hasdftoine about this gruff westorn
('?. excepting tho gentleness that
lurks about his mouth. Bill had
perceived the seemingly mutual par
tiality of hi? little Rob? and the pale
lacou stranger, yot why had every
one perceived it!
Win n young Lodding, a stalwart
?tripling, had come to Pavvtee Bill
to tell, in his honest, faltering elo
,?,;i un?, the story of his love for lit
tle Kost?, Bill shook the boy's hand
with kind heartedness.
..Lod," Bill said, "Hove my little
gal better nor anything else on
earth. i?it you're worthy of her, lad.
Go ask the chit, and my heart and
godspeed go with you."
Lodding never broached the sub
ject to Bil' afterward, but his eyes
lowered and his lips twitohed pain
fully whenever the great blue eyes
of Xii 11 mot his. Rose never men
tioned Lod's name now, while there
was ?i time wheia eh? would run to
Bill with a merry laugh to exhibit
tho rare mountain stone or a brace
of game that Lod had given her.
That was before there had been a
question of love; but now-well,
now it was different.
Among the miners all conversa
tional desire seems to have fled,
and each, engaged with bis own
thoughts, seems not to be conscious
of the long silence. Some distance
eastward, silhouetted against the
transparent blue of the evening sky,
two forms are visible meandering
slowly along the rocky bowlders
and low lying cliffs-the figure of
a girl, from the wide rim of whose
hat floats a tangle of sunny curls, a
smile lighting the comeliness of her
youthful countenance as she plaees
one slender hand in that of her com
panion, who offers his assistance
from where he etands on a jutting
rock a little beneath her.
His lips part in a genial smile, as
though he had said something arous
ing or pleasant, and thc girFs smil
ing face breaks into ripples of
laughing smiles. Pawnee Bili has
tamed and gazes at the tableau in
silence. He utters no word. Rising
silently, he moves slowly ./om the
still companionship of his comrades.
As he moves from his comrades
they look at him in silence. What
barm could come to Pawnee Bill's
Rose? What would that aristocrat

silence. He listens imiufully to the

On the hard earth plot before
Pawnee Bill's cabin Bill and the lad
Loddiug are conversing in low whis
"You know, Bill," Lod .is saying,
"I never told you afore, but Rose
says as how she don't love mo, save
as a friend, and, Bill, don't say uoth

The eyes of love are keen, and as
Pawnee Bill kisses his little Rose's
upturned lips he perceives that the
great blue eyes are ' humid with
the remembrance of recent tears.
"Have you come back, little 'un?"
ia all he says, and he leads tho way 1
into the little sitting room, which is !
ROS?'B especial oharge.
"I say. Bil?," David commences,
"I've a great favor to ask of you."
"Now, Master David, what oan
you be askin of me? You have all

"Not quite alli want, Bill. There
is something I have not which I
want very badly, and it is that for
which I've come to ask."
Rose's face is red with blushee
and a strange look is in her eyes.
Bill looks kindly at David, but the
gentle curves of nis mouth have
grown to austere lines.
"Well, Master David," he says.
"I want your little Rose for my

"Rose." Bill said tenderly; "come ,

nor what I do. The love for my near

Master David, my Rose is a wild
prairie flower ; she has nothin but
her love to give you. Tell me in
your great home out east 'niong ser- j
ciety and fin'ries what will my little
Bose be? You see, I love you my- ,
self, lad, and I could not let you do
"Let me talk some, Master David.
I'd be the last one who'd mar my
little girl's happiness or yours, but
this I ctm't do-see her become your
wife. It wouldn't be fair to you;
'twould 'pear as if we was takin a
advantage of you, and bi moby, may
be, both on you would be sorry if
you married, and now, as it is, you
will bless me some day. You'll for
get each other"
"Bill, you don't know wnat you're
saying," David cries. Then there
was a profound silence in the room,
broken by no sound save the low,
stifled soba of Hose against her fa-.
th er's knee.
"Master David, Bill's cabin will
always bo happier for your comm
near it, and Rose will always be glad
to see.you. Now, g??uby, lad, and
God bless you. Leave my little un
to hie, for her soi row is deep, .ti as
ter Da vid."
David respected Bill's word too
highly to thwart it-even so much
as in thought. After that evening
Hose and he spoke of their love as
something that made their lives
more sweet, yet as something that
was going from them hourly, mo
mentarily, and in their hearts they
asked themselves, "How will it

The story of the love of Roso and
David had been whispered - but
merely whispered-among them. To
thom it was something strangely
holy, this wonderful love-it awed
them. They could not tell why
Lod was wont to look intently nt
the coming and going of David and
wonder perplexedly why nature had
not made him such as ho, that he
might have won Rose's love. Still,
he kved the palo aristocrat, too,
and ho venerated bia noble conduct
toward Rose and worshiped Rose all
the moro for her sacrificing love for
Roso waves her hand blithely as,
at some distance from her, David
doffs his cap in greeting. Then those
who wove watching her saw bor face
suddenly whiten, a wild light dart
into her blue eyes, her hands to
clinch tightly, to stand hesitatingly
for a second, aud then to dart for
ward with lightning rapidity. There
is a sound as of something falling
heavily to the ground, n man's voice
shouts "Alastor David!" a woman's
shriek, and tho voice of David cries:
"My God! Rose!"
Those who witnessed the hurried
seono flocked to the place of disaster,
the rest of the miners following
wonderingly. Athwart the ground
a heavy wooden beam lies aslant;
close by tho body of Rose, her head
horribly gashed, her slender hand
clutching tightly the loose blouse of
David, who lies prone beside her
Rose had dragged him from thu
reach of the hand of death, offering
herself as satisfaction to the grim
ogre in David's stead.
Pawnee Bill views tho scene in si
lence. The still unconscious form of
David is conveyed from tho scene.
Hands, rough from laborious toiling,
gent?o with 'love, stoop to lift thc
prostrate form of Rose.
"Doirt touch her, comrades," Bili
says-his voice docs not quaver, but
it is a tone deeper than usual-"that
task is mine. "
Ho lifts tho form tenderly, and
with his face pressed tightly to hers
- white with the death tinge-ho
The next day the body of Rose,
still in the last, ?ulm sleep, lies in
humbie state in the little sitting
room. Loving banda of kindly wo
men have arrayed her daintily and
fastened a cluster of wild bloom in
her folded hands. Large sheaves of
blooms are about her, breathing
their sorrow in whiffs of perfumes
upon the still air.
Beside the silent sleeper Pawnee
Bill sits; his hard covers caressing
ly the pale, folded hands of his lit
tle Rose. He looks neither around
nor about him; his glance ia trans
fixed with sorrowful intentness upon
the marble pale face before him. A
hand is laid lightly upon his shoul
der, a voice whispers his name in
broken accents, and David kneels be
side the sorrowing father, his face
buried in his hands upon thc cid
man's knee, sobbing bitterly. Paw
nee Bill's arm steals lovingly around
the stooping form and gently strokes
the bowed head.
"She's goin from us Master
David," he says in a low voice.
David answers only with sohs. "My
little girl died for you, Master Da
vid, but I'd've dono the sumo. May
be, anyhow, she's better off, for thia

They watched together in silence ;
David's head leaning sadly upon the
coffin edge, the hand of Bill lovingly
twined around him.

"I was down south last full," said
tbe drummer, flicking tbe ashes
from his cigar aud tilting bis chair
to a comfortable angle. 11 Got caught
for a week by quarantine in a little
backwoods town in Louisiana, 'in
\he piny woods.' as they call it
Ibero, and the things I saw during
that week would till a book. Among
other things I saw a barbecue. Ever
been to a regular, old fashioned
southern barbecue! Well, I have,
upon its native heath and in its mo^t
primitive state, I guess. Really. I
think the people sort of got up tho ;
barbecue for ifly benefit as a kind of
public entertainment in my behalf,
killing the fatted calf, as it were, for
the prodigal who could not go home.
I appreciated the courtesy, 1 can tell
! you, and never missed a detail of it
from start to finish.
"The barbecue was given at what
they called tho 'picnic grounds,' a
little grass grown, underbrush clear
ed space ai inc rise of a bili. Prepa
rations for tho atlair began the day
before. Among other things a
greased polo was erected, and a cou
ple of old negroes were sent down
tho hollow by the spring to dig tho
: trench for the barbecuing. The
process seemed a very simple ono.
' All there was to it was just a ditch
! about 15 or 20 feet long, 'J feet deep
J and 4 feet wide.
I "In the bottom of this tho mou col
; lectedsome pine splinters, kindled a
fire and then fed it with oak and
hickory und ash wood till they had
the ditch half full of glowing coals.
"This took them well into the
night, you see, and before day they
cut a lot of slender oak saplings into
lengths and laid them at intervals
of eight or ten inches across thu
J ditch over the lire. Along about
. this time tho men carno with the
I meat. A whole beef they had and
? thrco muttons, and when they
j spread them out on the green sap
lings over the glowing coals those
great, brawny, bearded men, with
the light from tho pine torches glar
ing on their faces, looked like a race
of cannibals preparing for an orgy.
"All night they staid there, tho
good fellows, with forks and spits to
turn the meat, and with great long
handled mops which they dipped in
melted lard and vinegar to basto it.
And maybe you think it wasn't good,
that barbecued meat. Just wait un
til you taste some. There's nothing
"But tho people! Before day they
began to como, covered wagons and
ox carts full of them-men, women
and children. And the bas?ets they
brought full of biscuits and corn
pones and sweet potatoes and cus
tard pies and cakes! I don't think I
ever t>aw HO much to eat all at once
in my life. And vhe watermelons!
Wagon loads of them were put in the
branch to cool. And tubs of sweet
cider big enough to float in !
"After dinner the fun began.
There were foot races, sack races,
jumping contests, greaeed polo
climbing and greased pig chasing.
"Now, among my acquaintances
was a small boy named Tige, or, at
least, so called; a redhaired, freckled
lad, son of the man I boarded with.
Tigo and I were good friends, but a
lazier*lad I never saw, eo somehow
I was surprised when he appeared
as one of the contestants for prizes.
However, he did not enter either of
the races nor the jumping contest.
"But when it came to the greased,
pole, lo, tho freckled Tige led all tho
rest ! Tho way that chap stuck to
that slippery sapling was a caution,
and when he reached the top nono
cheered louder than I. The samo

was simply 'onto' the pig and staid
"By right of being a guest and
therefore to be honored it fell to
my lot to award the prizes. Tigo
was to receive a six bladed pocket
knife and a pair of spurs-hardware
in my line,.you know," the drum
mer interrupted himself quite un
conscious^ "and when the little
scamp came up to get them I caught
a wink in his other eye that seemed
sort of suggestive.
" 'Tell me how you did it, Tige,* I
said when I had given him his prizes
with appropriate remarks.
" 'I ain't no fool, if I do have fits,'
he said, still winking.
41 'But we are friends,' I urged.
** 'An is hayin keepin?' be asked.
" 'Yes, having is keeping, sure,'
"Coming quite close'.to me, he
winked frantically and said in a
hoarse whisper :
" *Pine rosin :'
"Then, holding out his palms and
turning up his heels, he cut and ran.
But I understood. Tho little scamp
had taken the precaution to literal
ly cake his 'feet and hands with
fresh, sticky pine gum and so had
held his own by right of stratagem."

ENGLAND'S ARAB TROOPS.
A Sccue Before a liai tie In the lCgyptian
Tho colonel's words produced un
almost magical effect. With tho
Arabs tho fantasia must precede the
light. So soon as the men heard
those wholly unexpected but to
them exceedingly welcome orders,
thero was a scene of tho most ex
traordinary excitement. In a mo
ment and of their own accord tin*
whole 080men fell out ot* their ranks
and rushed off at full speed shouting,
brandishing their rifles and leaping
toward their huts, and there, as is
their custom before going to battle,
they donned the amulets that height
en courage and laing good fortuno
in war, the armlets sind necklaces of
their wives, and gave farewell em
braces to those dusky dames, whoso
excitement was as great as their
own, for throughout all tho lint en
campment now rose the shrill kiln
ing of the women and tho din of
heating tamtams. But the men
wasted but little time in those tra
ditional observances. Even tts they
had rushed oft' so did they soon
hurry hack, ami were again drawn
up before Colonel Parsons, ready
for tho march anil, eager for the
fight and the looting of cattle which
would be the rowan! of victory.
It was expected that they would
be about live or six days away, lint
their commissariat arrangements
were very simple; they had with
thom a few camels to carry skins of
water and a little flour. They had
no baggage 01 any sort; barefooted,
and clad in a scanty robe of white
cloth, each man curried with him
nothing but bia rifle and ammuni
tion, aud was quito prepared, if
given his handful of flour a day and
a sufficiency of water, to march
from ono end of the Stidau to tho
other. Sons of tho most warlike
ii:ibea of Ihe Af rican Arabs-Haden
doa, Beni Amer and others-these
savage warriors presented a splondid
appearance as they stood there
drawn up awaiting the final order
that should let them loose, moving
restlessly, a murmur passing
through their ranks, like hounds
with the prey in sight still held back
by the leaah, while their proud
chiefs, clad in their picturesque flow
ing robes of various colors, rode up
and down the line on their pranoing
horses. A little distance off stood
all the women, still luluing, clapping
their hands and encouraging their
husbands with brave words. All tho
warlike instincts of the rac? were
uppermost, and one felt that men
like these need no tighter discipline
than that which now controls them,
when fighting under their chiefs, to
make them a most formidable foe,
even if opposed to picked European
At last tho short, quick word of
command was given, the bugle
sounded, and they were off, a 10
hours' march between them and the
foe. It waa a spectacle auch as one
seldom has the fortune to behold.
The sun waa just Betting, a red disk,
on the edge of the broad plain, and
to the east the huge granite but
tresses and peaks of tho Jebel Kas
sala glowed in various tints of lu
minous purple and copper brown.
As the bugle sounded the chiefs
waved their swords and spurred
their horses, the men gave a yell
and in a body broke into a quick
run, blandishing their rifles, leap
ing and cheering as before, and
rushed in the direction of the set
ting sun, across the plain of wither
ed grass, soon to disappear in tho
clouds of dust they raised. So long
as they were in sight the women
lulued and the tomtoms beat. It was
indeed a very fine setting out for
battle. I think that hud even the
most peaceable individual of thoso
who regard all war with horror been
present the contagion of that excite
ment would have found out in him
and made to tingle some hidden, un
suspected fiber of the old barbarian.
