3IISS JARVIS' MYSTERY.
"Will ye ride?"
'Gid"Birker drew up his horse to ask the
question. The little muddy buggy drawn
uy a vir uay norse, wuu gaurp uones and
short tail, was in a sort of road an uncer
tain watjon track winding through a scat
tering growth of scraggy pines, more or
less under-grown with pink-flowered man
zanita. At the aide of the track a tall.
sunbonneted girl was walking with an alert
air, swinging a tin lunch-pail. She turned
at Barker's call, showing a pair of bright
black cyes;,and a comely, capable sort of
face, assented promptly, and mounted to
the seat. Gid Barker drove on in silence
for a few minutes, slouching forward till
his elbows were almost on his knees, and
watching the ears of his horse. Mean
while the girl's bright black eves took an
inventory of his small, leathery face and
"seedy ' clothes.
"Yer the new sceool-mom in thisycr dis
trict?" he drawled at last, without looking
Now it was not at all strange that Mr,
Baker knew these facts; for a quarter' to
nine that morning he had traversed the
road in an opposite direction affixinr nost
en t pino tree, and houses; r JjioU
Ht forca ots Claim and recommodations to
a vacant place in the California house ot
representatives. He had stuck one to the
tiny log school house, just behind a bend
in the road, and had taken the chance to
ask of a heavy-faced, half-breed boy who
stood by and stared :
"Got a new school-mom? What's her
But Miss Jarvis had likewise improved
"You're Mr. Barker, I s'pose? Running
for the legislature, ain't you?"
She had catechised the children about the
poster, and the man who put it up. Miss
jarvis was blessed with a very large share
of the spirit of inquiry.
"How come you to run in Jenuary?" sho
"Special 'lection man dead," said Bar
ker, cheerfully. "Course ye stop at Mis'
Sharp's; I kin take ye clear home, then."
They continued to investigate each other's
antecedents Barker learned that Miss
Jarvis was "from the mountains," and that
this dismal wilderness of low knolls, witli
ita thin growth ot pines and occasional
sheep-ranches was a populous region to her.
Her native taste for her neighbor's aflairs
was stimulated uy thus coming into a new
neighborhood, and then a subject came up
that roused her curiosity to the utmost.
They came out from among the pine trees
and crossed a wide, gravely creek-bed,
where cotton woods grew, festooned like the
banks, with wild grape-vines. A moment
later they came to the ancient bed ot the
same creek, now become the most fertile
spot in the same reginu. Hero was ashanty
shaded by a very old cottonwood that had
once marked the edge of the water, and
surrounded by a thriving garden and orch
ard. That was a rare sight In that part of
the country, and Miss Jarvis leaned out to
look at it with eager interest.
"Reckon ye've never been by here?" said
"No, I've only been here three days, and
I cut across home through the pino trees.
Who lives here? I a9ked Mrs, Sharp who
all lived around, but she never told mo of
"Well, Mis' Sharp, she's kinder funny.
Sho don't like to answer questions an' I
recken she thought it'ud make a good deal
o' talkin' to say anythiu' about 01' Tom.
He's a queer stick. Lived thero by him
self this five car. Thar ho is, in that cor
ner, by the water-pipes."
Sure enough, in the fence-corner was an
ingenious home-made hydrant, connected
by rude pipes with the steam farther up,
where water was pcrcrnial. Stooping over
this arrangement and tiakering with it,
was a tall, gray-haired mau, shabbily
dressed and slouching in his carriage.
"Do you know htmi' asked Miss Jarvis,
eagerly. , . :
"Oh, yes, i know mm. uoen in his
shanty, an that's 1 whar . thor aint many
"Why not itop and speak to him, then?"
" "Jest's soon," said Barker, drawn ing ud
the bay horse, and whistling a call, fingers
la mouth. The gray-haired man turned
tad c&ae ilowy across the field, , ,

Miss Juris demanded, meanwhile. . ' 1 :

sometimes that he's eddtcated. 'ithout

stylish, but mostly he talks common. They

"Old Tom" was close to- them. As he came
nearer she saw that he was younger than, '
his gray hair and seambllng gait made him '
seem. If ho had straightened up and
stepped out freely he would have been
quite stalwart. He had a heavy blood
beard, and listless blue eyes; his features
were fine and Intelligent, but with a pass-.
ive, indifferent expression.
"Well, Old ', he said, absently, standing
between the wheels, and , lean
ing his arms on the scat. "Lectioneorin. "

l m glad to meet you, Miss Jarvis, and l
hope your school teaching here will be
very pleasant. I m atraid ladies find teach
ing these very remote schools rather weary
and thankless work."
"This seems to be an easy school ; mostly
half-breeds, and they're too stupid to be
troublesome," Miss Jarvis said, much im-

began : "But you must know something
about him. Whure'd ho como from; ana
what's his true name?"
"We-ell," began Baker Iclsurly, setting
himself for a story, "this 'cre's all ever I

enough fer governor, if he was all there.
He's a kind o' wrapped up in his garden;
once a lot o' sheep broke
away, an' cum acrost a piece of
new corn, an' used it clean up. Well, they
do say, Old Tom, he really cried when he
see it, bein' as he's gettin' sorter childish;
but he wouldn't tako a cent for it. .
"Tain't the valley of the corn.' savs he;
'but,' says he, 'it makes me feel bad to see
that pretty field all spoiled.' Seems like
he feels ter yer garden, not nana' aoythin'
else to be fond of," ended Baker, senti
mentally. But Miss Jarvis was not sentimental.
'.'May be he's hiding from officers." she
suggested. "Wasn't there ever sheriffs hero
looking for some one?"
"Plenty of 'em," said Barker, chuckling.
"Some one or 'uothcr alwavs sends 'eiu
after Tom. Jhcy go up an' 'rest him, an'
examine him, an' come away an' say he
am t their man. lie s got quite used to

"Don't he ever have letters?"
"Not a letter. Onco a letter come to the
office for an Austin Wedgwood, an' one to
the posruastcr nskin' n1out sccli a man. He
went to 01' Tom, but Tom, savs he : "Taint'
none o' mine; I don't know no scch man.'"
"Why, good land 1'' cried Miss Jarvis in
Sreat excitement, with her eyes blacker and
er cheeks redder than ever: "thore wa a
letter like that enmo to our rostofhYeJ Just
the same name !"
"Folks aro always writin' all over Cali-
forny after stray men," said Barker, philo-
sophically. "They think Culiforny's 'bout
as big ns a township, an' that everybody
here knows ail the men in tnc iuto. wen,
here we arc; glad I come along jest right
to bring you home. Supose you jest take
this poster along with ye, on get one

Miss Jarvis stood on Mrs. Sharp's un-.
planed door step a moment, watching the
buggy roll away, In tho low wintry sun

When she turned to a more interesting sub

set foot out of this district," 6he said with
decision, turning to the open door.
But what a picture is this that awaits
her? She stopped short in the doorway to
