by a llfo of wandering and dissipation.
And thu.n ono night ho told to us the
story of his life. Wo didn't bcltcvo It
Uicti, but It had Mirvod to while away
a weary hour between supper nnd
blankets, and wo forgave him. A pack
train from Del Norte had brought up
to camp , fresh tut uf supplies, Including
a keg of whisky Tlio latter article
was the key which unlocked "Old

HU name, ho said, was George

and wealthy one. l'hll Sheridan was
his tchoolmate, au 1, although I'liU's

They had grown up together,
and their affection for each other was
that of David and Jonathau. Then

to honor ono of (1 rant's greatest

that I could mulntiilii a position on tho
curb which rommunded a view of tho
approaching parade. Hvurybody was
determined to sou l'hll. bhcrldan. Tho

There was a blare of bugles, a caval
cade of mounted policemen, a brass
band and thou tlio carrluge, containing
the llttlo military chieftain, turned tho
.comer and cumo down tho ttet
toward tho spot w hero I wns stauiTmg.
Then u fierce, wild outburst from ten
thousand throats toro tho utmotphere
Into tatters. Onco moro und onco again
tho ear-splitting jell drowned tbe
brnzen notes of tho band nnd then died
away. The crowd wns too anxious lo
seo Sliortdan to waste any moro time
in splitting Its lungs Into fibers.
Tho carriage was v Ithln
feet of 1110 when I was startled by
hearing a strangely familiar voloo on
my right cry out:
"l'hlll oh, l'hll!"
I turned and rccopilred "Old Illnk."
A llttlo moro haggard nnd bent, n
llttlo longer and grayer locked, with
his great clenmlng eyes shining Ilka
twin stars, tho mascot of Del Norte
stood leaning forward In tho crowd,
among which ho towered like an nged
giant, waclng his long, gnunt arms
wildly at the passing carriage. Thoro
was 0 hungry nppeal In the voice that
bordered unon Miunllcntlon and caused
hundreds of eyes to turn from tho
carrlago and Its distinguished occupant
to tho speaker.
"l'hlll oh. l'hlll"
Ocn Sheridan heard tho cry this
time, nnd, looking quickly around, be-(fan
to Ncun thu macscd faces as If

"l'hlll Mill! It's mo; It's Hlnlc!" and
ngnln thu arms of tlio old trump went
Into tlio nlr like the fails of a windmill
He hnd caught .Sheridan's eye.
And then the Deuter populaco witnessed
something it did not understand,
and nbout which It talked for
weeks. Ilsuw (len. bhcrldan stop tho
carriage, leap quickly to tho street,
force his way through the crowd, placo
his arms around tho neck of our un-kempt
old tramp uud kji him fair In
tho fnee Then he led the miserable-looking
trnmp to the ci 1 lingo, placed
him bcslclo himself, nud tho parade
was resumed. Hvcrybody who witnessed
the scene accepted as an explanation
the statement that It was
one of bhertdan's old coldlcrs, but I,
who hud listened to and laughed to
scorn "Old 11 til ' htorynt tho camp-fire

I knew that Hinckley was the

Seccral days afterwart I again met
' Old lllnk " bhcrldan and his stair
had returned to Chicago. Illnk woro a
new suit of clothes, but looked ns if ho
was just reentering from a protracted
debauch In answer to my look of
surprise and Inquiry he explained:
"No, I wottldu't go back east with
him. lie gate me a staku and I've
blowcd most of it In already. I ain't
fit to associate with 1'liU any moro no

.Ho wanted mo to go homo with him,
but I couldn't live' there. I'm oft for
tho mines, to-morrow. Dill's all right
and 'ld Dink's' all right, and so
what's the dlirerenco?"
Ho turned his eyes In a wistful way
toward a purple bank of clouds resting
on the peaks of the KockUs
nnd I noticed that he had nged rapidly
since I had known hint in the San Juia
region. 'ic further questions ho gara
evasive answers, nnd we parted I

A year and a half ugo 1 wns again In
Colorado, nftrr an absence of fourteen

Wo had reached the top of th

to tho little mauntuln village. Th
sun was just betting behind Oray's
peak to thu south, and forty miles distant
1'lke's peak stood lonely in its
grandeur, tin listing an ley finger far
upward Into tho regions of eternal
frost Directly opposite tho outor
slopes of the Musquito rango lay concealed
In mist und shadow, while
thouraud feet below ran the waters of
Willow creek To the right of our

valley Castle rock rose, naked and
grim, like a glnnt anvil, fivo hundred
feet In tho air. It overlooked the foothills
for miles around, nnd had given
Its name to the railroad hainlct nestled
at Its base. The grandour of tlio scene
had made us both silent for a time, but
just as wo rounded au escarpment of

broke tho spell;
"Do you bee that grave otcr there

"Yes; what of It?" I was In no mood
"Queer duck planted over there.

"Lots of fellows go that way. Nothing
