Away he went and up the shaft, to
travel as swiftly aa possible through
the drift-piled road down Kentucky
gulch and to the Sampler. There he
sought out old Undertaker Chasttne,
and with him went to the proprietor.
"My name Is Falrchlld, and I'm In
trouble," he said candidly. "I've
brought Mr. Chastlne with me because
he assayed some of my ore u few days
igo and believes he knows what It is
worth. I'm working against time to

"You'll see In the morning If I've
got It," answered Falrchlld with a new
hope thrilling In his voice. "All that
I have so far Is an assay of some
drill scrapings. I don't know bow
thick the vein Is or whether It's going
to pinch out in ten minutes after we
strike It. But 111 know mighty soon."
Every cent that Robert Falrchlld
possessed In the world was la his
pockets two hundred dollars. After
he had paid his men for their three
daya ot labor, there would be exactly
twenty dollars left But Falrchlld did
not hesitate. To Farrell'a office ha
went and with him to an Interview,
la chambers, with the judge. Then,
'the necessary permission having baea
granted, he hurried back to the mlaa
and Into the drift, there to find the
last of the muck being scraped away
from beneath the site of the cave-la.
Falrchlld paid off. Then he turned to
"How many of these men are game

aay kind of a gamble to It"
"There's a lot of gamble. I've get

apiece for n night's work If my hunch
doesn't pan out. It It does pan, tha
wages are twenty dollars a day for
three days, with everybody, Including
myself, working like b-ll Who'a
The answer came in unison. Fair
child led tho way to the chamber,
seized a hammer and took his place.
"There's twc-hundred-dollar ore
back of this foot wall If we con break
In and tart a new stope," he an
nounced. "It takes a six-foot hole
to reach it, and we con have the whole
story by morning. Let's go I"
Along tho great length of th$J!oot
wait, extending all tho distance of tho
big chamber, the men began their
work, five men to the drills and as
many to the sledges, as they started
their double-jacking. Midnight came,
the first of the six-foot drills sank to
It ultimate depth. Then the second
and third and fourth; finally the fifth.
They moved on. Hours more of work,
ithd the operation had been repeated.
The workmen hurried for the powder
house, far down the drift, by the shaft,
lugging back In their pockets tho yel
low, candle-like rtlcks of dynamite,
with their waxy wrappers and theli
gelatinous contents, together with
fuses and caps. Crimping nippers
the Inevitable accompaniment of a
miner came forth from the pockets
of the men. Careful tamping, then
the men took their places at the fuses.
"Give tho wordl" one of tbesa aa

Falrchlld smiled the smile of a saan
whose heart Is thumping at Its maxi
mum speed. Before him la the long
line ot the foot wall were tea holes,
"upholes," "downs" and "swimmers,"
attacking the hidden ore In every di
rection. Ten boles drilled six feet
lata tha rock and tamped with double
charges of dynamite. He straight-

to the fuses for a second. Soon they

Falrchlld nor the minora had stopped
to watch. They were running aa hard
aa possible for the shaft and for the
protection that distance might give. A
wait that seemed ages. Then:
"And two and three t"
"There goes four nnd five they
weat together 1" "
"sax aeven eight nine "
Again a wait, while they looked at
one another with vacuous eyes. A
long Interval until the tenth.
"Two went together theni I thought
we'd counted nine!" The foreman
stared, und Falrchlld studied. Then
his face lighted.
"Eleven's right One of them must
have set off the charge that Harry left
n there. All the better It gives us
Just that much more of a chance."
Back they went along the drift tun
nel now, coughing slightly as the
sharp smoke of the dynamite cut their
lungs a long Journey that seemed
as many miles Instead of feet. Then
with a about Falrchlld sprang for
ward, and went to his handa and

was high and excited. "You can aee

Kittson, ttie owner, should appear, and
drag him away up the hill, even be

"There it Isl" he exclaimed, as ho
led him to the entrance ot the cham

of it and assay it I" J
Btttson went forward tnto the cross

at new holes, mid examined the vein.
Already It was three feet thick, and
there was still ore ahead. One ot the
miners lokcd up.
"Just finishing upfon the cross-cut,"
he announced, as he nodded toward hla
drill. "I've Just bitten Into tho foot

like the vein's about five feet thick

Ha hurried away then, while Falr

town and to their breakfast Then,
recruiting a new gang on tho promise
of payment at the end of their three
day shift, Falrchlld went back to the
mine. But the word had spread, and
others were there before him.
Already fifteen or twenty miners
were assembled about the opening of
the Blue Poppy tunnel, awaiting per
mission to enter, the usual rush upon
n lucky mine to view Its riches. Be

coming from.Ohadl to take a look at
the new qtrlke, and his heart bounded

Harry was not there to enjoy It all;

every effort, Falrchlld' had failed to

Some one brushed against him, an8

That was all. There waa.no signa
