dank. The mist liy In moist, iloitlng heaps
upon the Holds and In the lanes and roads.
It mingled with tho fog above the ponds
and stieams and hung thete heavier and
more dense It mingled with the smoke
and fell upon the town, thicker and chillier
and darker still, hiding one house from nn
olher, billing the passers-by on the streets,
hiding the derricks and chutes nbout the
shifts, hiding even the bright glow of the
many colored smelter flames In the few
'blocks that were still running.
It gathered on tho limbs of the trees, and
fell ttoin them In large, spiitterlng drops.
It gathered on the horses as they passed
and ran down their steaming spies in little
rivulets. It githcred upon the uniforms of
the mllttlo, as the men tramped up and
down their beats throughout the city, and
soiked Into nnd through the heavy cloth,
wetting uni! chilling every limb Kveiy
where, nnd on everything, it fell thick and
gray until the i.irtn seemed onlv a soddtn
mass, surrounded with an endless atmos

Just outside the town Captain Murray
stood beside a dripping team, talking ear
nestly with the commamllug olllcer of the
troops He held an envelope, which his su
perior had Just handed him
"Youi directions are contained in thit en

The capt iln sprang Into the buggv,
tucked the storm robes nbout him, and
dtove quickly olf As the general was
about to turn back, a man, bending low
over his horse's net k and concealing his
face b"hlnd It, passed hastily after the al
leady Invisible vehicle.
Pot i moment the general thought ltvvaf
somo furmir who, having had dltliculty In
passing the guild, was riding fast lo teach
home before the thickest darkness should
fall As he consult led the ridel's appetit
attce and actions, however, it seemed more

Meantime. Murray was driving ns fast
as he could thiotigh the clinging mill, lie
had gone but a little distance when ho
thought he he.nd a splashing of horse-.'
hoofs In the road In hind but when he
pulled up he coul 1 hear nothing nnd drove
on
In a little while Impenetrable darkness
fell, and he left his horses to their own
he ids to find their way, Thoy turned into
a etoss-toid, nnd he soon found himself
twisting and angling through timber, cross
ing and recrosssing a little creek, oce a
slouly passing thiough farms, ovet which
short cuts h id be en made.
At tltst he kept his team going btlskly,
but as the roads became heavier and the
elukniss blacker he was lompelUd to let
them walk Thtn, a secon I time, and a
thlid, nnd n font tli, ns he went slowly on,
ho thought he heard the sound as of some
one riding behind him, yet each time, when
no stopped, tne oppi issue silliness stemiu
unbroken save for the breathing of his
hoists sounding stnttllngly loud to his
overly sensitive mind
liy and by ho passed the timber nnd left
the creek behind, emu Ing upon what
s.eined ti wide pi.ilrle, cut up by many
sloughs and old buffalo wallows The roa 1
was worn smooth, but went over
banks so stetn tlet sometimes the Ijuluv
seemed to go straight up and soiuitlin.s

ular inclines, forcing tho hoists befote It.
And nil the time, us he sti allied his eyes
to see the toad uhead, they seemed Just on
the vetgo of soma dteji cut und about to
plungu iu
Presently the pralile was passed, too,
and the ground became quite leu I, Tor
some time he had not heuid that sound
that befuit had in ide him mote alert, and
as the time Ungtluned ho put uslde the
filling of anxiety that was taking hold on
him, ami tell to thinking of many things
Tho siilke, how It bei,.tn; what Justice
thete could be lu burning and destroy lug
iiilhU'ssly, what the tost would be, lu
money perhaps In blond Ills wife and
child, how lonesome Mabel woull bo while
he vi is gone fiom them, and how glad he
would be when the trouble was over, and
he lotild return home but what If It should
but ome woise, should result In death, and
he should be one ut those that shutil 1 uevci
go home nllve !
This last thought persisted, I hough he
tried lo put It away L.irlt time he turned
his mind to something el.-e this camo up
and repeatetl itself with distressing bharp.
piss How lonesome they would be If he
shoull iievil go huuie. Suddenly, quite
plain, he heard that sound ahulu He
slopped once mote; once mote he could
hear nothing, uud went on,
Hut ho hud been to startled by It this
time-, was so sine lie had heard It, thut
his fotincr feellug of danger came back
sti enter than ever, und he began to ex
perience Mi Indescribable fear of tue daik-lies-,
all mound him Ills Imagination was
aroused He Mt thcie was some one
behind him. almost at his back, with u
weapon diawn. Although he knew It could
not bo he looked around more than once
when tho feeling was Miougest In Ills
mind
And now he began to think continuously
of a night ho had si arcely thought of for
live yeais. The Image of an enraged man,
trembling in his passion, rose before him
u gul n and again. The words of a violent
thi eat repeated thtiuselyts with urriblu,
distinctness In hl enrst "When prosperity
And success make life dearest to you, I
will hunt you out and Uke It from sou."
He Is-gin to ask himself when had life
been. deirest tn him. nnd he Almost shud
dered ns he realized that never had It been
so dear ns now, with All prosperity and
promise opening up the wnv of happiness
before hi tn. The words had more slenlft
eance to him thin they had ever had be
fore and tilled him with vague, unknown
fears Yet hi knew- tint real and fir
greater danger was much neirer, and he
wondered that he did not feci the same
dtead of It
The rain had stopped and the dirkness
thinned enough for him to discern n row
of miners' houses standing by the road
The vicinity was unknown to him, and he
drove un tne quicker that he, knew what
reception n mllltli olllcer might expect nt
the hands of the Inmates rive hours had
passed. Hy this time he knew he should
have bfeh In famllllar country, yot every
thing was strsnge Hut the horses rtnMl

them to t,o on. Another hour went by, And
still ho landmark that he rroognlred.
Presently, however, they turned, but In
the wrong direction Into a road he knew,
And were taking hlnl .twtvv from his desti

turned them around he was Just ut the
road over which he had come llestopiied

By the death of Joseph Hoberts, a Cali
fornia pioneer, Saiua Cruz lost a genuine
ltoblnson Crusoe, for Mr Hoberts had
passed through In e irly manhood nil the
thrilling (iclvtiuun s and exciting life which
endear Defoe b hero to the leading boy
and girl Sixty-seven years ago, on St.
Valentine's tlay, Joeeph Huberts was born
In l'alklrk. Ills family for yens had been
seafaring people, s0 that ns he grew up
he took to the e.i n iturally , and w hile only
11 ytnrs of age, while his playmucs were
t-tlll cabin boys, he was tn tde second mate
of a sailing vessel Beforct ho was 15 ho
mide his llrst long voyage from home, and
lollowed tin sen until he itaihed manhood
Ho visited many furelgn countries ami the
Mauds wlili h dot the on an, but never
landed In the United States until he sailed
through the Uolden (late tr. 1U1.
There was one of the many stories of ad
venture which Mr Hoberts told which
ncvei grew stale to young or old It was
the story of the months ho spent on, a
cannibal Island lu tho Pacific Mr. Hoberts
was on a cruise among the South sea Island-,
on an l'ngllsh merchantman, and
when land was sighted he went ashore,
knowing that nlthough the Island wus In
habited by cannibals, they wore peaceable,
Hut tn his absence the captain ordered the
anchor up and all sails net. and for eight
mouths he was left alone among a lot of
South Sea Islanders
The natives worshiped him ns a dlety,
and the king shared hts own palm hut
with him. Tho nitives on that tslind be
lieve in feeding their god. so Mr. Kobeits
llve-il on tht fat of tho Island. The daint
iest lish. the rarest game, and tho earliest
mid iwcetest fruits were lild ns oiferings
at his door. 1'Ivo dusky glrU waited on
him, served 111 n i with food, und wove gar
lands or now tts with wnicn tney crowned
him. Whenever he went to the sea shore
ho was followed by un admiring horde
of natives. Ho was the llrst nun on tho
Island, the divinity of the natives, the king
ot tneir King. .xir. uonerts usea to say
that he liked the adoration of the South
Sea Islanders, but as the months passed he
grew homesick and longed for the sight
of while faces. Civilization seemed a very
desirable thing In those days, but he ac
cepted tho situation
At tha end of eight months' btay on the
Island, upon awakening one morning, he
saw a ship lying ut anchor In the bay.
Pretending to the natives that he vvlshej
to bonid tho vessel tn trade with the sail
ors, they took him out to her In ti canoe,
and he climbed up the side of nn American
ship. The captain and crew wero mote
than astonished to see a white man, and
Hoberts begged to be accepted as, u sailor,
a pnssengei, or anything, so he could once
more reach civilization On this ship he
entered tho United States for tho llrst time
foi tho tailing vessel was bound for San
Pranclsfo. When the natives IcimtU thit
their whlto god was going to leave them
they put out to sea lu all their boats, fol
lowing the sailing vessel for miles, scream
ing, crying and beseeching him to Jump
overboard and leturn to them, San l'ran

OW?.-. A IIIII'l'AI.O HERD.
A Montana Man Is 'trying to Perpetuate
the lilsou.
Prom tho Washington News.
Chirlle Allard. of Hav till, Mont . pos.
sesst-s the proud distinction of being 0110
of tho owners of the lurgest herd of buf
falo In existence, and Is one of the few
frontiersman who during the early '70s had
foresight enough to perceive that nt somo
day this noble animal would becomo ex
tinct, und had the courage to attempt to
fclem tho tldei of thu slaughter
In a conveisatlon. with somo friends Mr.
Allard told of how he had engaged In tho
novel business of buffalo farmint,, and his
story Is well worth repetition.
"It was ubout l"u that 1 conceived the
Idea of keeping a herd of buffalo, for at
the rate they wero being Killed then I
Knew that some day they would become
scarce and valuable. I captured four or
live calves and kept them with our herd,
but during the hard winter hay became
scarce and I was compelled to turn them
loose Then I wus never ablo to start out
for myself, because every time I wanted to
quit the boss i.ilsid my sulary, and thus
persuaded me to keep on cow punching.
When I finally j,nve It up he was pii'lng
me i.'Ou per month. Then 1 came to thu
Plathead valley. I had been wintering
there every year for sever il years, riding
the express route trom Horse Plains to
Mission for Clark Bros, during the winter
season, I bought from the Indians a few
head of buffalo which they had there in
seml-cnptlvlty on the reservation, I paid
them from MOO to J3t) apiece tor the ani
mals, and then 1 started Into the business
of raising buffalo The herd thrived In all
seasons. They had u tango of from thirty
to forty miles north nnd south ami were
shut in on both sides by wooded hills,
w likli mado as good a fence as a limn could
build, for buffalo do not venture among
the trees.
"Tho coldest storms of winter do not
trouble them, for their thick, shaggy
coats are wind-proof. During the heavy
snows and uuzzarus tney cumu tne nuts,
and. turning their breasts to tho wind, de
ty the storm. They feed where the snow is
thinnest. Cattle are driven before a storm
mid will often go with a wind sixty or lis)
miles from the accustomed range unless
they reach a sheltered spot. Horses turn
their backs to a storm, but the buffalo
faces It every time. They seem to keep In
about the same condition the year around,
and are as good eating In the spring as
they are tn the fall, und a buffalo stealt
Is us line a morsel as ever a man made a
meal of. About two years ago I purchased
tho Jones herd of buffalo, which was at
Omaha. Them were ihlrty-ono of them In
the herd and we pud for I have a part
ner !iow-lt.CiOt) for the lot. Murchlel Pab
lo, a well known cattleman, bus Joined me
In the business, and for the past year has
had entire charge of them, so that I Uo
not know- Just exnetly how many we have
about 110 I should Judge now. nnd by next
fall there will be fully '-Oil of thitn.
"We havo experimented in crossing the
buffalo with nil breeds of cattle and tho
results are moat satisfactory. The Polled
Angus slock when crossed with the buf.
fulo produces a magnlllcent animal, Tho
fur Is finer and closer than that of the
buffalo, und the meat Is sweet nnd whole
some. We are procuring ns many of these
animals as possible, but will not put any
on the market for several years yet, AVa
are not selling any butfalo. either, for the
reason tha', we need them nil at present.
Wo receive letters every day from muse,
um. parks and shows, wanting them In all
quantities, nnd though we might dispose
of one or two singly, we have no pairs to
sell.
"A good buffalo hide Is worlh HOO now )n
tho market and heads bring from J2f.l to
tMO when mounted, and the value of these
Is steadily Increasing, so that buftalo breed.
Ing Is as tood an Investment as real es.
tate. Our herd Is the only one I know of
of any size. There Is a small one In tho
Texas Panhandle and these, with Ihe. fe
that roam In the National nark, are the sole
remnants of the thousands which roamed
the prairies but a few years ago." 'umva
