Courtney, their coach, n hen He arrived at
the boat house thlf morning- at S o'clock.

worries to which they hne Iwi-n subject
ed. If I had the tliliiK to Uo u.iln 1 would
request permission lo bring twenty-five
men here ana keep two crena In training."
Courtney dots not share the suspicions
of Mr. C. S. Francis, the trustee of Cor
nell university, who accompanied the Cor.
hell crctv to Unglatnl, regarding the Hi
leged iinralt-ness fit the drawing of lots (or
the dllteretit heats, whlcn resulted in pit
ting Cornell against ilic l.catnlcr crew.
Comnit-ntlng on the drawing, Courtney re
marked: "The affair was managed differ
ently than at home, ll-ie there Is one
man who drawn the nntn-s from a hat
and then tears them up, none of the others
seeing them. Hut this man was an old
lrfMindet- Uoat Club mail of the highest re
pute anl If he desired to favor Ills club he
would hau given them a bye."
Courtney seems to be overanxious about
the result. Uo has been working very
hard and there Is reason to believe Cor
nell's prospects are much better than he
InuiKiti. s. Certainly there was no sign of
dtstouragement uuiotig them when il.u
bos arrived at the boathouse at 10 o'clock,
tt Is true that route of them liik pale, but
they Mere all in the best of spirits and
Feline)! and lloger were as lively as any
of them. The boys launched their boats
shortly after 10 o'clock and rowed at half
speeil down the course.
All the other Crews were out and It was
admitted on all sides thnt none of them
approa i. lied Cornell's form or appeared to
row as easily. The members of the Lean
tier crew have an undeniable hang In each
A number of the Bngllsh coaches were
grouped with Cpurtney on the river bank
while the crews were practicing und one
of them said: "Well, Courtney, your boys
certainly row Itt the best form mid In bet
ter stlo than nny of the crews on the
river. - give them four out of si
points. Tlulr principal fault, in our mind,
is In the shortness of th-lr stroke, but
their Mad.' work un.l the use of their
hands could not be bciier."
Courtney admits that the stroke of the
Cornell boys Is not so Ions as he would
like, an.I lie say It Is simply lipcause Hall
wflt not reach as far its Courtney wants.
On arriving at the starting point, after
their pructlce, the Cornell boys paddled
back to their boathouse In the best form.
Omul crowds of people witnessed the
final practice of the crews this evening.
Xone of the crews did the full course. As
the Cornell crew rotvi d up stream and
passed the town, where KrttH masses of
people Unci tile bank, an1 In going under
the bridge, they were sn -ted with hearty
cheers and cries of "well rowed."
The brothers Thompson, of the Argo
naut Rowing Club, of Toronto. Canada,
who are enteTed for the diamond sculls,
and also for the Stewards' Challenge cup.
With their fellow clubmen, the Munse
brothers, did the course singly and then
the Argonaut four went over the full
course in eaey tlnle. K. A. Thompson, ot
the Argotmuts, discussing the drawing of
lots at the. townhall on Saturday last,
Said: "1 do not think Mr. Krancts was
wise In the way he has talked to the
Cornell crew. Any charge of unfalrnes
In the draw Is absurd."
The Americans ure fast arriving at Hen
ley. Among the prominent arrivals to
day were R. 11. white, of Cleveland, O.:
Mr. Sewall Andrews, of Minneapolis, and
Mr. J. M. Douglass and Mr. Churnley, of

THE DEACON'S REVENGE,
A'lnli'fit inn lliil(l-l'n In Ibo l,nnd of

The mud-baths at these springs are justly

Himself at lt'iiutb in. on the steaming

of the same material. A few gunny sai.ks,
neatly arranged on the top to confine the
heat, make itn artistic finish, and the pa
tient's head alone protrudes. The mineral
witters, heated by nature, come constantly
Imlllng and bubbling through the ground,
nnd the baths can he made seien Units
hotter than Nebticlindnestiir's furnace, ir
desired. If the patient survives, the baths
grt tho glory: If he dies, his case was hope
less from the start. Deacon Jlnrdwlcke
would remain in one of these baths an
hour, enduring nn experience which might
have killed a man of less phlegmatic tem
perament. Then he would try to persuade
others to follow Ills example, greatly to
the disgust of the managers, who were
afraid that somebody would die In a bntn,
and so ruin the teptttnMon of their estab
lishment. For similar reasons ho was un.
popular with the attendants.
Thus It happened that the deacon seemed
to be deserted, when, bnlanctng myself wi
the plank that edged the steaming pool, 1
halted at the foot Ot his grave and gazed,
half In alarm, nt his closed eyes and heavy
Immobile features, down which trickled
little rivulets of perspiration.
"Will you kindly tell me what time It
Is7" he nsked, In a sepulchral lone, which
added to the horrors of the situation.
"Ten o'clock," I said. "Want to get out?
I'll call the attendant."
"Time Isn't up for llfteeu minutes yet,"
replied tho deacon.
I picked up a sponge that was nt hand,
In n basin of cool water, and, for the next
fifteen minutes. 1 bathed the dencon's per
spiring forehead with the grateful lluld.
Then the attendant came, prepared to lift
the little gate at the deacon's feet, to slide
the slippery coverlet of mud off from him
and back Into the trough from which It
had come, and to help him out of the ten
acious, plastic cast that he had made In
Ills sticky bed Into the water bath, and
thence Into the dressing room, where he
would receive a thorough grooming mil be
put to bed between a couple of bla'tkets,
there lo doze und sweat for an hour or
two longer. At this stage of the proceed
ings 1 lied the scene. The spectacle of the
denson's long, lank, loose-jointed tliiure,
clothed only In a thin, clinging coat of Jet
black mud, would have been too horribly
"tion't you want a mud bath? They nre
great thtnes." asked the deacon, as I
turned to go.
"Not to-day," I replied. "To-morrow,
maybe, or next day, perhaps, I'll Indulge,"
"Take them about 110 and stay In tnree
qtiarttrs of nn hour, and they will cure
your rheumatism," responded tho deacon,
Two hours latpr the deacon Joined the
other guests at the hotel, professing to bo
greatly refreshed by his bath. His appear
ance was striking. He was tall, awkward,
and angular, yet dignified. His upper Up
was smooth shaven, but on his chin was
a heavy, grir.zled growth of beard. His
way of speech was so slow and solemn as
to seem affected. I was told that lie was
a '"49er;" that his title of deacon was only
honorary, having originally been bestowed
by his associates In the mines and clinging
to him through muny changes of fortune;
and that his business Was real estate. He
was said to be very clever In working off
acreages of cactus bed, sage brush and
hillside upon new ' comers. His ungainly,
honest appearance favored him, and ha
could look the prospective purchaser in
the eye and weave the most remarkable
romances without a quiver of his clerical
We became fnt friends, and I found him
an interesting study. It was the deacon's
cusiom to make ftvquent trips to Hoom
opolls on business, returnlns to the hotel
for more of his b-loved baths. To reach
the hut springs, tin traveler crosses live
milPs of desert country, where the cactus
flourishes like a green bay tree and the
coyote shrills at rtluht his p-eullar lay.
Then he climbs "the grade," a rise of a
thousand feet tn two miles. This part of
the way is over a mountain road which
skirts precipices and winds In and out

threatening tone. "J mean business. Uroti

The deucoti halted and shook his fist at
Hip man. What he said Is not material to
this recital. Then he turned and ran down
the grade. Ills hat bobbed off, and his
long coat tails fluttered out behind. It
was an undignified and lUky proceeding,
but there svwned no help for It egoept ro

not consider that for a moment.
Tlu hlghwitjman Hied twice, and the
deacon afterward stated that the balls

The shots IttiMcred him. He stumbled,
tripped and fell, lie bruised his shins and

our robber. We made three of four circuits
of the town without success, and tin"'!
found ourselves In the "Magnolia Hub
Rooms." The fstnblishmrnt was really
only a single room, on the ground floor
back of a .Igar store, nrmnged lor faro
and other games of chnnce. It was llghteil
lv a solitary, mammoth lamp, which was
suspended from the celling over a long,
green covered table, upon which were stut
tered cards nttd gold coins. Around It were
perhaps a dosen men. or various sorts una
conditions. All lnlpnt upon "the gnine." As
limmy more. Including ourselves, were in
terested onlookers. The room was blue
with tnbncco smoke, nnd the door at tne
farther end, which afforded communica
tion with an adjoining bar, wns per
petually on the swltiB.
I was enjoying th character or nmn
letlr detective hugely. So far there was 11
pleasant tinge of excitement or rnther an
expectation of excitement and very lit t lo
danger. Hut as we scanned the faces of
the company without seeing our man. the
dencon's brow grew black with disappoint
ment. It was now after midnight, rhe
cigar store was closed, but the bar was
kept open oil night. Disappointed In our
search, we became nborbed In watching
the name. There Is something of the gam
bler In every man. nnd, as 1 looked upon
the tense, -clted faces of the players, the
contusion of their example seized me and I
felt in my pocket for a coin. flndliiK noth.
lug but silver, which I did not ilk" to
stake, as there was none on tho table. I
wns on the point of borrowing a double
cficle from the deacon, when I heard n
cpilel but distinct voice nt the end of tho
"Hands up, gentlemen, If you please!
Glancing around 1 saw 11 man standing
nt the door leading to tho bar, a revolver
In each hand, pointed nt 11s. He was 11
short, slight man. with dark hair and n.
llamlng scar across his face.
There wits no confusion. One of the
loungers quietly placed his back against
the door leading to the cigar store and
drew two revolvers.whlch lie pointed along
the tabic. Two others, evidently confed
erates also, stood at ease n waiting the next
order. The rest of us lifted our hands slin
ultaneottslv. Anjone could see that It was!
the only thing to do. The deacon's face
was ns white as snow and his Jaws were
tet like a stceltrap. ,,,,,
"The gents that are seated will Kindly
Use," said the voice near the door.
Thp gnmblcis rose ns one man.
"Now. then, everybody right about and
face the wall," was the next command.
We faced about.
"March!" said tho cool, emphntle voice.
"Two feet from the wall, stop."
We advanced In two rows to the oppo
site sides of the room and stood, ns di
rected, ranged ngninst the walls. Then the
two confederates stepped leisurely to the
table and scooped the gold Into n couple
or little sacks which they produced from
"Keep your hnnds up. everybody, camo
n fpilek nnd sharp warning from the door,
ns some one Inadvertently lowered his
arms n. trille. "We're not through with
you yet." the voice added.
Having secured the money ou the table,
the brigands proceeded to rob our persons.
With 11 great show of politeness, they re
quested us to give up our watches, money,
and weapons. I was one of the tlrst to
comply. The fellow tossed my revolver
and my few silver dollars Into his sack
and grabbed nt ray watch. ,
"D n the thlngr he said, and threw It
on tho floor.
Just then there was a crashing, cxplo
nlve sound, deafening In the narrow con
lines of the room then anut her another
and another. Then came darkness, a quick
rush of feet, a tumult of shouts and
groans. , .
It -was the deacon, of course. I knew It
before the welcome, hurried arrival of
men from outside, with lanterns. Ho had
"turned loose" at the lender. They had
exchanged three or four shots betore the
light went out, quickly and mysteriously.
The men with the sucks und the money
were Bone, but tho deacon was bending
over a form that was stretched upon the
floor. There was an eager, wolf light In
his eyes; one hand still held the revolver
and the lingers of the other worked spas
modically backward nnd forward, as If
he longed to cluti'h the fallen man by the
throat. The fellow tried to lift himself
upon his elbow.
"I know you, pard," he said, "iou're the
man I stood up this afternoon. You've held
over me this time. I'm gone."
The deacon's eyes softened. He dropped
his revolver, put his long urm under the
other's head, und tried to turn him into a
more comfortable position.
"I am sorry for you," he said, slowly and
"Oh it's all tight," gasped the wound
ed man, evidently speaklnc with sreat dilll
rulty. "I came Into the same 011 a
blntr, but you' vo culled- me sure."
"Is there anything Hint I can do for
you?" asked tho deacon. "Any message
'Hend down here," said the matt,
The deacon lowered his liend nnd the
other whispered something to him,
"I'll do it," said thu deacon; "I'll do It,
50 help me. Clod."
Thut was all. The crowd of peaplp, at
tracted by the llring and the news of Hip
rol.btry. gradually went 11 way. Thu phy
sicians summoned to attend tho wounded
outlaw explained that nothing could be
done for hlin, except to make him a trille
cusiei- for an hour or two. The hours of
the night passed quickly, but long beforo
morning the useless, crimson-stained life
was at an end.
The next day In the afternoon tho ilcncon
nnd I sat on the veranda of the hotel nt
the Hot Springs enjoying u suii-batli and

'Nature Is a lavish giver, a prolllgnte,"
said the deacon, in his solemn way. "See,

waste. Don't you think so?"
"1 suppose It Is," 1 replied, "from tho
nolnt of view of real ettate. Hut It makes

the deacon. "For one who makes life a
brilliant success, tliuro ate millions who

I knew that the deacon was moralizing
upon our recent adventure.
"Now there was that young fellow yes.

he was I would have lent him a hundred

could tee nothing, except a wide expanse
