old Blaok was just giving a doliqato

thn Colonol gave a shrill, quick whistle
and fivo mon sprang iutoltlie road.
Thu horses stopped us suddenly ns if
it were a matter ot common occurence
his logs and stared into the sky.and pas
scngers all put out their heads with a
rapidity equaled only by that which
thoy withdrew them ns thoy paw tho
dominoes nnd revolvers of tho road
'.Scorns to bo sotnotliiug tho matter,
gentlemen,' said tho Colouel, blandly,
as ho opened tho door. 'Won't you
pleao get out? Don't trouble your

his weapon cocked tin' his lingers is
rather nervous, Aiu'tgot a handker

ted n.ili similar courtesy, and tho Col
jtiul nnd his friends examined tho pock
ets of the captives. OldBlack remain
ed unmolested, for who ever heard of a
stngedriver having money?
'Boys,' said tho Colonel, calling his
brother agents aside and compairing ro
ceipts, '(ain't much of a haul; but
there's ono woman,an' she's old enough
to bo a toller's grandmother. Better let
her alone, eh?
'Bike enough she'll plan out moro'n

Cranks, carefully testing tho thickness

Tho Colonel abruptly ended tho con
versation, aud npproachod tho stage.
No was very chivalrous hut Crank's
sarcastio reference to Tipsio needed
avenging, and as ho could not consist
ently with business urrnngomciits put
au end to Cranks, tho old lady would
havo to sutler.
'I beg your pardon, ma'am,' said the
Colonel, raising his hat politely with
otic hand, while he opened thu coach
donr with the other, we're tikiug up a
collection lor some deserving object.
Wo wuz a-goin' to make the geutlcmon
fork over tho hull amount, but cz thoy

Tho old lady trembled, felt for her
pocketbook, and raised her veil. The
Colonel looked into her face, slammed
tho stage door, aud sitting down 011
tho hub of ono of tho whcels,starcd va
cantly iuto i-pace.
'Nothing?' queried Perkins in a whis
per, and with a face full of genuine
io yes,' said tho Colonel dreamily.
That is untie 'em, and let tho stage
go ahead,' ho continued, spriuging to
his feet. I'll hurry hack to tho cabin.'
And tho Colonel dashed into tho bust)
oi, aud left his followers so paralyzed
with astonishment, that Old Jllack
afterward remarked that 'of thero'ed
been anybody to hold the horses, he
could hev cleaned the hull crowd with
'"Tnc"rpassengors, now relieved of
their weapons, wcro unbound, ullowed
to enter tho stage, and the door was
slammed.upon which Old Black pioked
up his rcius as cooly as if he had lain
them down at a station whilo tho hor
ses wcro being changed, then ho crack
ed his whip and tho stage rolled off,
while tho Colonel's party hastened back
to their hut, fondly inspecting as they
went certain flasks they had obtained
while transacting their busiucss with
the occupants ot tho stage.
(ireatwas tho surprise of tho road
agents as they entered tho hut,for thcro
toood tho Colonel iu a clean whito shirt,
and in 11 suit of clothing mado up from
tho limited cpuro wardrobes of thu
other members of the gang.
But tho suspicious Cranks speedily
subordinated his wouder to his pru
dcuee, as laying on tho tablo a watch,
two pistols, a pocketbook and a heavy
puti-o, ho exclaimed:
Come, Uolonol,uizncss bcioro pleas

'Divide voursclvesl' said tho Col-

to tho leader's, face, 'bo you sick ?

tho Colonel, witu, a bound, which
caused Crauks to drop tho pistol and
rotiro precipitately forward, npolizing
as ho went. ' I'm gom to tent to my
own bizucss, nu' that's enough to keep
any man bizzy. Somebody lend 1110 S.'iO
till I seo him agm.'
Porkius pressed tho money into tho !
Colonel s hand nnd within two minutes
tho Colonel was 011 Tipsie's back and
collopcd on 111 tho direction tho stago
Ho overtook it, ho passed it, nud still
The peoplo at -Mud Gulf, knew the
Colonel well, nud mado it a rulo never
to bo astonished at anything ho did ; hut
they made it an exception to tho rulo
when tho Colonel canvassed tho prin
cipal bar-rooms for men who wishod to
purchase 11 liorco ; nnd when a gambler
who was flush, obtained Tipsio in ex.
ohaugo for twonty slugs only a thous
and dollars, whou tho Colouel had al
ways said that thoro wasn't gold etiough
on top of tho ground to buy her Mud

Ono or two ontorprising porsous
speedily discovered that tho Colonol
was not In n communloativo mood ; so
ovory ono retired to his favorite saloon
nnd bot nccording to his own opinion
of the Colonel's motivos and uotions,
' But whon tho Colonol, after remain
ing in n harbor shop half nu hour.emer
'ged with his faoo oloan shaved and huir
neatly trimmed aud pirted, betting was
so wild, that a cool-headed uportiug
man spoedily-mado a fortnne by betting
against every theory that was advanced
Then tho Colonol mado n tour of tho
stores and fitted himself with n new
suit of clothes, carefully eschewing all
of the generous patterns nnd pronoun
ced colors so dear to tho average miner.
Ho bought a new hat,and put on a pair
of boots and pruued his finger-nails,
and stranger than nil, ho mildly de
clined all invitations to drink.
As tho Colonel stood in the door of
tho principal saloon, whero tho stage
always stopped, tho Challenge Hill cou
ntable was seen to approach the Colonel
aud lap him on tbo shoulder, upon
which all men who bet that tho Col
onel was dogding somebody claimed
tbo stakes; but thoso who stood near
the Colouel heard the constable say ;
'Colonol, I tako it nil back, nn( I
own up fair and square. When I seed
you get out of Challenge Hill, it cotno
to mo all of a sudden that you might
be in tho road agent business, so I fol
lowed you duty you know ; but when
I scod you soli Tipsic, I knowod I was
on tho wrong trail. I wouldn't sus
pect you now, if all tho Stato wuz rob
bed, and I'll givo you satisfaction any
way you want it1'
'It's nil right,' said tho Colonel,
with a smilo. Tho constable afterward
said that nobody had any ide 1 of how
tho Colonel smiled when his beard was
off. ,'fiive this fifty to Jim Porkius tho
first time you sec him. I'm Icavin'
Suddenly tho stago pulled up to tho
door with a crash, nnd tho uialo pas
sengers hurried into tuo saiooti in a
stato of utter indignation nnd impo-
Tho story of the robbery attracted
overybody, nnd during the excitement
tho Colonel slipped out quitly and
opened tho door of tho stage. Tho old
lady started and cried,
" HJoorgo 1"
And thu Colonul jumped into tho
stage and put his arms tenderly
around tho old lady, exclaiming,
