A couplo of tho party volunteered.
Thu men Kejuirated. Part of them moved
forward on tho trail. Tho others
turned their horcstit riu;ht tingles to tho
former lino of march nnd loped on
tho enstemer'n cabin.
Tho easterner, otherwibo Jack Craig,
of whom they had lieeu sieakintf, had
been in Sago Bar only a short time. Ho
was n tenderfoot, out .and hut. When
ho cmno to tho Bar ho brought his wifu
with him. Sho was n bright, pretty
llttlo woman, but they hardly knew her
in tho settlement. Crnig alwnys had
been reserved, and tho two had kept by
themselves in tho littlo cabin which
Mood a mil) or mora nway from town.
So Sagu Bar had como to consider the
jialr ft "queer lot," nnd to designate
them ns "th' easterner an his wife,"
which was intended to bo nnything but
Wlicu tho truiltug party reined up in
front of Craig's cabin, they found tho
object of their search sitting on a log
before tho door smoking. From his
dress, liespattered with mud. It was evident
that ho had just returned from riding.
Tho party exchanged glances of
Bam Pike caipo to tho point nt once.
"Craig," ho said, "yer wantod dowu ter
"What's thuti" demanded tho customer
"Yer wauted down ter th' Bar!" Satu
repeated. "For boss stealing!" ho added.
Craig's face was nflamo in the instant,
iio sprung from his seat, throwing back
his hand to his hip. But tho others had
him covered, nnd his hand dropped
loosely by his side ngain. "It's a
lie," ho said, "and you know it!"
Just then u woman's figure npieared
in tho cabin doorwny. It was Craig's
"What's tho matter'?" sho questioned
anxiously, seeing her husband's nttitudo.
Craig sike up nuiuklyt "Go back,
Dolly I They've- got up n dirty story
about mo nnd want mo to go to tho Bar.
But I'll como buck iu a littlo while."
Sam had a great fear of women's
tongues and tears, and immediately ordered
Craig to mount n, honso which
another man nt n word securod from tho
stablo near by. Tho woman had looked
on dumbly, seeming hardly to comprehend
what was taking place, but as sho
saw her husband walk over toward tho
horse, sho run to him and threw both
arms about him, holding him tight to
her. Ho unclasped her arms gently after
nn instant and mounted tho horso, and
tuming iu tho snddlo waved his hand to
her. Then they rodu away, and after
they hud gono a piece Sam looked bock
and saw tho woman still standing thcro,
her hands loosely locked beforo her,
watching them with wide open eyes.
"She's grit tcr th backbono," muttered
that worthy nnd lashed bis horso into a
All Sago Bar crowded around tho party
when they drow rein in town, and there
were somo who would hnvo strung Craig
up upon tho spot when Sam hud told tho
story. Sngo Bar wus in that stags of
progress whero horso stealing was n
capital offcuso nnd a short shift was
granted to offonders. But Sam's protest
that nothing should bo done until the
Hlnes party returned wus heeded, and
tho prisoner was put lu nn empty cabin,
tied hand nnd foot, sovernl of tho men
agreeing to stand guard. .,
' ' Tho af ternoon, yvaucd away, and even-'frig'
came, and the Hities party did not
miiko its appoaruueo. So Craig wus
given something to cat and then; was
fastened tightly onco more, and thd men
rolled themselves up in their blankets
in front ot tho cabin about 11 o'clock,
leaving only, Jo Stetson on guard.
Stetson sat himself down on a stump
and lit a pipe, nnd with his rifle ucross
bis knees fell to thinking about somo
mavericks" he'd bad branded that day.
Prosontly he imagined ho heard a soft
step from tho prairie. He raised bis
bead and listened. Just then tho moon
showed a rim beyond a sailing oloud.
and its light fell on a figure a woman's
figure mnkinj Its way toward tho cabin.
Stetsdu roso to his foot, letting his rifle-butt
dron on tha ground, csd curl'jaslr
turveyod the woman, who was closo to
him now. It was tho easterner's wife.
"Is ho in there" sho said, hor volc
'trembling a bit.
"Yes," answered Stetson.
"Can I se bimr' sho asked. "Only
for a moment," sho added.
"Can't do it, niurm," said Stetson.
For a moment sho was quiet, looking1
longingly toward tho cabin and clasping
and uuclusplng her bands' softly. Tha
man hopod she would go. Ho had hated.
v ''vvr ""
to say no, nnd ho didn't know how long
bis determination to rcfuso would last.
"But they say they're going to try him
tomorrow, njid I mayn't get another
chiinoo.'1 'She looked ul him so stidly
und yet so bravely withal that Stetson
wavered and was lost.
"For live minutes, then, no more!" he
said, hulf repenting of his words tho instant
they wero nttercd.
But he unlocked the cabin door for
her mid looked it behind her uguin.
Then hu stood outsido tho door cursing
himself, Presently thero wus a rnp from
the Inside of the cabin, and, much relieved,
ho uudid tho door, but be kept
Ids finger on the hammer of his riflo as
lie stood asido to allow her to puss.
Sho cuinb out quickly. Stetson turned
nnd lient to fasten tho door. As ho did
sd ho felt it tiny ring of cold metal
uimlnst his head and heurd, in her voice.
"1'Ul up your minus unuuu it ijuicaiyi
Tho order was so distinctly put mid so
emphatically backed up by' 1110" cold
metal which Stetson knew only too well
was tho dangerous end of a revolver that
bo did not hesltuto. As ho threw up his
hands the door wus pulled oeu from the
inside, mid u iiiiin dashed out and melted
in tho dnrkness of the prairie. A moment
moro, and the hoofbeuts of a horse
camo back, sounding clear and sharp on
tho still air.
The men who had been asleep till now,
awakened by the noise, sleepily raised
themselves on their elbows. Tho woman
bud not moved the pistol from Stetson's
bead, but now she dropjied the weapon
quickly nnd eturted to run. Iu an instant
Stetson was after her, nnd wild at
being outwitted bad run her down and
caught her beforo she had gono CO yards.
As ho grasped her by tho shoulders the
hoofbeuts wero dying on tho air, und the
woman looked into her enptor's face
with an exultant smile.
Stetson brought her back to the cabin
and in a half shamed way told his story.
Tho woman wus quiet and did not seem
to hear what they suid. Despite their
chagrin at having been worsted by a
woman, tho men could not but admiro
her pluck nnd skill. Then they argued
us to what they should do with her, und
finally decided to tako her into town ns
soon as it wus light. They locked her iu
tho cublu and then sat up und talked tho
Test of the night. They felt that it would
ho ubclcos to attempt to trail Crnig iu
the durk, nnd, to tell tho truth, they wero
Host n bit fearful that tho womun would
cacatM) them unless they kept a sharp
When morning came, a big purty set
off in pursuit of Craig. But they hud
fcant hopo of overtaking him with n
horso under him and his many hours'
start. The easterner's wife still remained
locked in tho cabin. Sage Bar for once
found itself nonplused. Law and order
hnd been reversed by a woman, und the
town had tho offender in custody. But
smoko und lxmder as it might, Sago Bar
"was at n loss to know how to proceed.
All tho laws of tho settlement, unwritten
though they wcro, bad sprung from
an acute sense of frontier needs and referred
to men. Thcro was nn
feeling among tho Sage Bar solons
that these laws could not bo upplied with
uronricty to women, nnd bo they talked
much, smoked and drank much moro
and did nothing.
When the Hlnes party enmo in, tired,
hungry nnd empty banded, no solution
of tho difficulty presented itself, and so
with admirublo judgment tho town de
cided to free itself of further responsibility
by setting tho woman at liberty.
Tho easterner's wife was pale and evidently
woni out when they brought her
out of tho cabin; but sho said not a word
-when thoy told her sho might go and
-walked off in tho direction of her homo
with n smile, half of defianco, half of
entisfactton. That night tho party which
had gono in pursuit of Craig returned,
having mado n fruitless search.
Two days later, just as Sago Bar was
Tirepnriug its ovening meal, two men
were seen riding over n swell from the
northeast. Fivo horses wero driven
loosely before them. When tho men
got nearer tho towu ono of them was
recognized as tho easterner. Ho was
Tiding bareheaded, and beside him rodo
another, dark and swarthy, his arms
bound to his sidos. his horse led by Cruig.
J All Suco Bur assembled about the purty,
-while Cruig told tho story of how ho had
ridden uwny tlutt night, lmd struck tho
trail of tlio horses, and following it hod
"brought tho Mexican thief to terms with
a Bhot from bis rifle, nnd then came back.
And when he had done there wero cheers
for tho easterner such as tho town hadn't
Jiad a chance to relievo itself of for a
doug while, and to this dny there is not a
man in Sago Bar but touches his slouch
hut to tho easterner's wife, whom Jo
Stetson declares Is "th sandiest little

The Scientific Verdict as to AI-
cohol The Poison First
Affects the Lobes of
All intoxicating liquors spirits, wino,
eider, perry, beer, alo, etc. consist of
water, a number of other substances
in it, and alcohol. Every person knows
that tho latter is tbo only thing that
causes man to drink any kind of liquor.
A quart of Matleria wine, for instance,
consists of two ponnds and a little over
four ontices of water; two ounces of
gummy and tortureous matter; a littlo
over two ounces of an oily, resinous
substance; and a littlo over two ounces
of alcohol. Take ont the alcohol, and
the remainder of tho Madeira wine is a
nauseous mess which no ono would
think of drinking. Take the aloohol
out of beer, and it is a sour slop whioh
. no sane man would dream of taking into
his .stomach. Whisky consists of
nearly equal parts of water and impure
alcohol, the latter containing fusil oil
and somo essential oils derived from
Now tbo scientific verdict as to alcohol
is that it is a poison, no more, no
less; and, as a poison, its action is first
upon the nerve centers. Its effeots in
the opening stages are modified in
various ways by the temperament of
the individual. Its action is genorally,
at first, to fill tbo person with a serene
and perfect self-complacency. His
feelings and faculties aro rendered
more intense from tbe stimulation of
the nerves by the poison. With most
persons this is shown by increased

sick and giddy, with throbbing bead,
ringing ears and bloodshot eyes,
Tbo poison first affects tbe lobes of
tbo brain, and tbo other nerve centers
of tbo are successively
brought undor the influenoe of
the poison, until, in tbe stato commonly
known as "dead drunk," the only
ones that are not paralyzed are those
known as the automatio centers, which
regulate and keep up respiration and
the circulation. Enough alcohol can
be taken, bowover, to paralyze these,
in which case the deep sloop of drunk'

the action of aloohol upon tbe nervous
system, and its action upon the other
parts ot the body is no less injnrious.
When an alooholio drink is taken into
tbo stomach, the alcohol is rapidly

tion, and is oarned with, the blood to

We hopo wo have made it clear in

that it is absolutely and entirely a
poison.. It is iu no Bonso a food. It

Thero is a vast amount of ignorance
among the people as to tho real nature
of alcohol. It is the fewer number of
onr people, even at this date, who aro
convinced that alcohol, is a poison; and
this ignorance of the masses is one of
tho bulwarks of tbe traffic. We need
more education, especially in tho family,
in tho church, and in tbe common
