CRAND ALL'S ESCAPE.
Che prison stands upon n llttlo elevated
stretch of ground, its tall trees and trim,
green yard contrasting with the dreary
barrenness of thu low, sagebrush covered
hills which lie about it in all directions.
Young Paddock,who had been sent by his
paper to report anything of interest con?
cerning Crundnll's escape, drove up ovci
the dusty road and alighted at the great
barred doom. Ho found to his disappoint?
ment that tho wurden and bis posse wort
still out ou the hills, and ho Bat down with
a bored air upon a bench In front of the
low stone building to await their return.
Tho day was warm and bright, tho sun
beaniinn broadly down from the clear Ne?
vada Bky. It was so still that tho sound
of the bells on a mule train passing just
beyond tho stone walls sounded dreamily
through tbo hazy summer morning long
after the heavy wagons wore out of eight.
Paddock was almost dozing when a man
in stripes approached.
''Mr. Jarretl wants to know, sir, if you'd
cure tuw the men turned out in thu
Paddock rose lazily. "Why, yea?I
guess so. You"
"I'm a trusty, you know," tho man said,
with a half biugh. "I unlock the inside
gate. Please come this way."
They passed the outer gate, through thu
corridor, and then CUU10 to the tall barred
door through which the convicts pass aft?
er each meal. Hure Jiu'rett joined them.
Ho was a tall, burly man, with grunt
heavy shoulders, nmassive head,and quick,
keen eyes. They stood on one side while
the men llled out, numbered, and at the
clang of a Ik'U slowly dispersed iu all
directions over the great stonoynrd.
" You see," Jarrett remarked, striding
ahead of tbo reporter, "tho yard's a quarry
guarded oil three sides by nut oral Ht< me
wtdls. On the fourth?well, hero's where
Crandall bad hidden bis gun. Here's
where he crept up tho earth wall. Here's
where my shot caught him, in the shoul?
der, I think. Hut the man's got the luck
of satan to back up his courage, for a gen?
eral break of the men on this side follow?
ed. Wo settled them pretty quick, but
Crandall?oh, what's the use of talkln of
those things? Thoy jest happen, and I'm
bio wed If I know who's to blame." IIo
turned away, swearing undor bis breath.
Paddock's languor had nil disappeared
back here, where the men, with listless,
lagging step, crept around the sun baked
Btoneyurd. They were like so much locked
up capital, which tho state's hard times
had condemned to heartbreaking idleness.
Being denied tho privilege of occupation,
they talked Indifferently among them?
selves, becoming dumb and watchful at
the guard's approach, or tended their lit?
tle gardens which the un'.v.-.ryir.g, k.'ro
rlous patience of long, monotonous years
had built up In the corner of tho rock.
Hero, In the most sheltered spot., which
oven tho bitter mountain B tor 111 s had spar?
ed, was one little plot of green which more
than the others attracted Paddock's at?
tention, for the vines ami bushes were
fresh and thrifty, the few vegetables wero
crisp and flourishing, and the graceful
morning glories and sweet peas, aided by |
the unpainted trellises and much knotted j
string, clambered high upon tho rooky]
"Yes," said .lunvtt ungraciously, "the |
'lucky garden' is a pretty spot, but it'll
be d-d unlucky for tho next, man who
trios Gnindall's trick."
"This was his garden?"
Jarrett nodded. 1 It took him three
months to get enough earth to make the J
bed on the leek, ami the winter had COlllO
by the time- he'd managed to get it fenced
In. Hut he took more pride in this bit of
green. He knew every blade of grass, and
not a bud could bo picked without his no
tiein. 'Course iii.no of tho'cons'would
touch a thing, but we've visitors some?
times thai haven't, sense enough to be out
of jail. Vein's tho linnet Crnndall trap?
ped." He lifted the clumsily fashioned
wooden cage from its place among the
Vines, but nothing moved inside.
"Hey, Jack!" Jarrett called to ono of
the men, who came limping up. He
touched bis old hat.
'? vVhero's Crundull's linnet?"
"It?got away," said tho uian hesitat?
ingly. ' I
"Got away, did it?" repeated Jarretl I
"Don-*? know. When I took (he garden

Jarrett nodded understandingly.
"Crandall sot the bird lose before ho
made his break, I'll swear. Wish I'd
a-known it," he said to the young man
after they had turned to re-enter tho
They passed through tho cells till thoy
came to the ono the murderer had occu?
pied. It seemed to tho young man that
tho small, compact dens wero tainted, in
spite of the rigorous, institutional cleanli?
ness. Mo gasped and grew faint. Ho fol?
lowed Jarrett eagerly out of tho inclosuro
and drew a long free breath when they
were once more in the open. But, being
young and rather inexperienced, he was
ashamed of his emotion, and, what was
worse to him, afraid that It had been re
marked. Assuming mi air of ferocity, ho
turned his In tyish, good nut ured face to the
guard and said in his most offhand man
Tt's tough that the posse hud left be
fore 1 came. I'd liked mighty well tu gel
a look at the fellow."
"Ho!" laughed Jarrett. "You'd like to
bo with tho posse? Well, that'll be easy
enough. Look yonder." Ho pointed out
toward the long, while, dusty road. 1
some some of them now. If they haven't

Thuy advanced to meet tho group of
men, who, still far oft, throw out empty
bauds nnd shook their heads discourug
"Why didn't yo bring blm nlongf"
shouted Jurrott, grinning.
Hut tho men were worn out with their
long tramp over tho hills. Tired and sleepy,
their sense of humor could not bo counted
upon. One of them answered Jarrott'l
question with n gesture?lips pursed, eye?
brows raised and palms turned upward.
Another gave nn limpprcclntlvo grunt as
ho passed on toward the prison. Tho third
stopped Just long enough to deliver his

"That'll bo in half an hour. All right."
Ho nodded to the man, who passed on
wearily. l*Now," ho continued, turning
to Paddock,"doyou really want to comer"
"We'll take a llttlo lunch In n big hur?
ry, get our guns?I'll show you that now
Tho sun was setting whon they reached
Pluto canyon. They bad seen no trace of
the warden's camp, but as they began tho
ascent of the ravine u man ramo out to
meet them. Paddock's heart beat madly.
His desire for excitement and peril was
curiously confused with natural sympathy
for tho under man In the light. Hut the
stranger proved toben guard, stationed
there to dlreet tho ro enforcements farther
up tho canyon, whither a clew had guided
the warden and his party. So they pressed
on, leaving their horses In the man's care
at tho foot of the ridge, for the sides of
tho mountain sloped steeply. Conversa?
tion became dllllcult as they climbed, and
they toiled mi in silence till they had
reached the summit and found the party.
"We've gut him this time," were the
WhitO huirod warden's first words, his line,
bonovolont faro glowing in triumph. "He
camped on this very spot last night. Horns
und Davis are out now. If they don't find
him, you and I'll do the business. Jar
rett." lie threw hack bis handsome bead,
They threw themselves upon tho ground
; to rest, and the warden began to give to
I the reporter the particulars of tho escape.
He was Interrupted by the .arrival of the
two guards. They had found nothing,
i "Well, Jnrrott, you, Wilson, Bennett
nnd this young follow, if he wants to, come
along with me. They took tbe trail up
the mountain We'll just climb over the
hill yonder, tin tho other side tho brush I
is thick, with the trail toward Ifatton's
ranch not far ofT. There we'll Und Cran?
dall if I'm net much mistaken."
Soon they were ready. The warden's
enthusiasm had communicated itself to
bis companions. Jnrrott examined his
new, long revolver lovingly, for ' Cran?
dall isn't the man to go back for life with?
out a fight." Wilsen and Bennett march
ed on grimly, watching every hush, and
Paddock followed, his brain in a whirl of
excitement. The long twilight of tin
summer's day had passed. In tin1 dark,
warm night they walked on softly, speak?
ing only in whispers.
Tho young man's conflicting sentiments
bad yielded by this time to the expecta?
tion, the vigilant enthusiasm of the rest of
the party. Jnrrett'a rille, which tho re?
porter had taken for n moment while the
former examined his pistol, ho hold un?
consciously now with a firm grasp. His
nerves wore so strained that the slightest
noise came to him like a shock. When
Jnrrott touched him upon tho shoulder to
tell him that the warden had called a halt,
ho jumped nervously, darret t "s lips curled
beneath bis heavy, dark red mustache.
Under cover of the darkness he did not
try to conceal the gleam of contempt, in I
bis small, keen eyes, j
"'We're hot on tin; rrall," he whispered
to Wilson. "Warden, Bennett, ami I'll 1
go uli down the ravine, lie"?pointing to
Paddock?"had better stay hero with you
while you watch. He'll do less damage
here than with us. A shot from us m
from you'll Imj the signal that Cramlall's
Ho hail spoken with his mouth doset?
the guard's car.
Wilson aiul Paddock stood in silence,
watching till the warden's party had dis- !
appeared. For a long time they waited,
expecting every moment to hear I bo sig?
nal. The young man's nervous trembling
bad passed away. He was eager for the
ooiillict. Tho softer sentiments had van?
ished. Only the savage in him remained
and longed for lint tie.
After a time ho could no longer hear In?
action He envied the guard his sentry's
duty, which gave him thu Utterly of pacing
up and down. The moon was just rising.
Bocks and bushes took queer shape- in
the dim light, and from behind any ol
them ('randall might 1)0 lurking. With n
nod to tho guard, the young man turned
mid climbed to the top of the hill. Fat
down a glimmer of light from the broad
1 moon tipped tho shining barrel of .hu?
ret t *s pistol, which doubtless h>- held cock, d
in his hand. The warden and his two men
were creeping cautiously along.
Paddock stood awhile. Then, rounding
a turn in the twisting trail, suddenly In
came upon the murderer crouched behind
I a great rock, his eyes bent upon the saun
j gleam of steel that had attracted Pad
I dock's attention.

rolled out, and soon tho porter began to
make up tho beds. We all turned ia

train had got far beyond Mott Haven.
"I adjusted everything carefully, re?

when I was aroused by a queer, rum
