Itcsmea l'rom Ljut hinj; by th Aft
of a Tripling Young (Jlrl.
It was uu odd name or a girl Sac

body," sho said quite aloud. "But I'm
inoro boy than girl, anyway." .
'ills fact was added rather bitterly,
us she looked at her brown, rouo-h
hands and her Laro ankle,-and thou"Tit
of tho "boy's work" she had to do.
And It was hard to bclievo that this
was tho best kind of life for a young
girl like S:tcrameuto. Here she livod
all alone, for her father was down at
the mouth of tho canyon all day. The
garden work sho was obliged to do,
aud tho care .of tho cattle fell upon her.
It was not often that she saw any per
son but her father, although now and
then, in spite of herself, she came in
contact with tho rude men of the min
ium camp up above.
Yet Sacramento had hor dream, one
that sho "scarcely dared to own," but
it came to her often as sho went about
She knew that down at Santa Bar
bara and in tho towns along tho coast,
and far, far away across wide stretches
of continent to the great East, there
were girls who livwd very different
from her life, and sho dreamed of such
a life for herself.
Oli, if i could only get away from
hcrol ' she cried out almost as one cries
out for help. "If I could only go down
to San Francisco and go to school there
for a single year. All, if I had $5001"
Suddenly thure was a step not a
man, but of a horse on the bank be
hiud iter, and then some one spoke.
Shu knew the voice without looking up.
It was I'lte Larrabee, a fellow "who
lived down on Ilahueuian's plantation,
two miles along tho trail. Ho some
times rode by. He had not heard her
lat words at all; yet, strangely enough
his own was a repetition of them.
"Five hundred dollars. Sac," said
he; ".fiOu in gold! D'ye want ter earn
it? There's yer chance," and he threw
down to her a bit of paper crumpled
into a ball.
She picked it up, and slowly unfold
ing it, ran her eyes over its contents:
$.A I'.KWARI). ,
Tho above amount will bo paid for
information leading to tho arrest,
deal or alive, of Walter Somers, who
lias worked for some time past on Max
well's ranch. Said Somers is about 18
years old and five and a half feet high,
blue eyes and a light mustache. When
last seen he had on a black slouch bat,
gray business suit, and bluo flannel
iiirt and boots with red tops marked
wiih maker's name.
The name of the county sheriff was
signed nt the bottom of the bill. Sac
ramento, having glanced it through,
lie's oeen a stealin' horses!" ex
claimed l'cte. "Got oil' last night
with four of Maxwell's best, some
winTes. 'I hat reward won't do much

him and string him up long 'foro the

iiii-etiu' l ow up at the gulch. I tell
e t.'.ey are mad. They'll make quick
work if they ketch him. Yer father'!
there. Ye neodn't look for him homo
afore night much."
Ttien, after a word or two more, tho
man rode on, and presently Sacra
mento took up her pail, and with tho
sheriff's bill still in her hand, went
slowly up the bank and across tho trail
toward the house, thiuking very seri
ously about the bill all the while.
ll was some hours after this, and the
afternoon sun was going down behind
the tops of tho mountains, that Sacra
mento, having linished her housework,
was preparing to sit down on the porck
to dv her sewing, when she was m,et In
tiie doorway by a young man sho had
never seen before. And yet he was no
stranger. Tho girl knew him instant
ly, although the slouch hat was pulled
down over the flaxen hair and blue
eyes, and the gray pants, torn aud
muddy, had been drawn out of tho
boot legs so as to no louger allow tho
red tops of tiie boots with the maker's
name to be seeu. It was tho horse
She did not, however, express any
surprise as she saw him. Sho was ac
customed to the sight of rough, evil
men; and at the first glanco sho had
felt that this one could not bo either
very wicked or very dangerous. Ho
was not much more than a lad, and
had an air of gentleness and good
breeding about him that six months of
Western life and tho plight he was in
at that moment, had by no means des
troyed. He seemed to be short for
breath, too, and was trembling as if he
had been running.'
Instinctively ho raised his hand to
ward his head, and then, bethinking
himself, droppod it again.
"Could you givo ino something to
eat and drink?" ho asked in a hesitat
ing voice. "Anything will do, I am
very hungry. 1 I havo had nothing
to eat since last night."
"Come in," said Sacramento grave
ly. In her voice there was noither
kindness or uukindnoss, sho was trying
to realize tho situation sho was in.
"Conio in and sit down!"
Then sho went into a closet near by,
and began taking down milk and bread
aud meat, as she slowly did so turning
tho matter over in her mind. Hero
was this man who had been stealing
horses, and for whoso capture $o00 was
tdlered, iu her own kitchen. Fivo
hundred dollars! Exactly the sum she
had beeu wishing for tho sum that
would take her down to Sau Francisco
to school and make a lady of her. And
this sum may bo hers if sho could in
somo way secure this stranger or some
how keep him in the house until help
arrived. HolpP Why sho hardly need
ed help. Ho was weak and exhausted,
and in tho drawer of the kitchen table
thoro was a loaded revolver, which she
well knew how to use.
Sho came out presently, and set tho
things before him, bringing also the
teapot from tho stovo ami pouring for
him a cup of tea. . Thou sho went ami
sat down by tho window, and watched
him furtively as ho ate.
In spile of his caution, he had taken
off his hat while ho was eating. Sho
could better see what he was like. It
was almost a boyish faco, worn, but

not wicked, with the curllnz hair lvincr
in dark cluster! upon his pale brow.
In the hands, small and well-shaped,
and in all his motions and maimer,
she felt that she could read something
of his story. She bad heard before
this how young lads in the East, tilled
with romantic notions about Western
life and advontu'ro, sometimes left their
luxurious homes and found their way
to the ranches of the Faeltic. Perhaps
ho was one of these.
. As she looked at him, fancying all
this, aud realizing the terrible strait he
was in and, the probable dark fate that
was before him, her heart yearned
with true womanly sympathy, and hor
feeling found expression before she was
able to restrain herself.
"Oh, how could you do it? - How
could you do it?" sho suddenly ex
claimed, her voice quite full . of what
j tie felt.
Ho looked up at her in wonder, but
as his eyes met hers ho understood
"I didn't do it. Upon my honor I
did not," he said. "It was that man
Dennis." Sacrameuto breathed a great
sigh of relief. Horso stealing was held
in that section to bo a crimo worse
than murder; and she was by no means
free from the popular estimate ol
"Oh, I am so glad of that!" cried she.
"But " she hesitated, and then went
on doubtfully, "Hut, then, how wm it?
Why did you run away?'1
"It was Dennis' doings, their laying
It to me. Ho did that to clear himself.
And after that you know as well as I
do that there would havo been no use
trying to prove myself, innoceut They
always hang a horso thief first, and
then considor lis guilt afterward.' I
had to run to save my life."
"Do you know that there Is a roward
offered for your capture?"
"I know that tho regulators aro af
ter me." answered the young man sul
lenly. "They came pretty near catch
ing me, too, this noon. I just escaped
them, and came down the canyon by
tho mountain trail. I havo had a hard
run for it, and with no sleep for twenty
four hours, I am about used up. I felt
as though I could not go another step,
wheu 1 Baw your house. Now you
havo been very good to me. I shall
never forget "
"But what are you going to do ow?"
interrupted Sacramento. "You are
not safe here."
"1 know it. But I threw them off
tho track this noon, and I do not think
they are within live miles of me. Now
1 havo had something to eat, I will
take to tho woods a;aiu. I hope I may
get clear away, if I don't" his voice
trembled and tears came into his eyes.
"If I dont, I shall got a hanging I sup
pose. Oh, what a fool I was not to prefer
homo to this sort of thing! And yet, I
wouldn't care so much either, if it was
nH for my poor father and mother."
And here the poor fellow fairly broke
"Hark!" SacrameDto exclaimed. She
had been crying, too. She could not

After handing his hat to him she
half pushed hi in across the room and
in to her own little room that led off
from it. Then she hurriedly cleared tho
table again, barely tinishiug the task as
the horsemen halted at the door.
There were three of them. One was
her father. Sacramento knew tho oth
er two men by sight. They were rough,
but of the better sort of those who
made up the dwellers of Kelly Gulch.
The faces of all three were stern and
forbidding, and they evidently had
been riding hard. They dismounted

tered the door, "hev you seen anything

Sacramento had expected the ques

"A young chap about 18 years of
age, and fivo feet and a half high, rath

"Yes! yes! That's him!" cried one
of the other men. "Has he been hero?"
"1 was only quoting from this hand

per from the shelf where sho had laid
"Then you hain't seen him at all?"
asked her father.
"I havo been right hero all day, and
nobody has gone by except Pete Larra

"No; but we didn't know but he

tho sententious response "And we

So presently tho three mon sat down
to the supper that the young girl quick
ly prepared for thorn. " Ana while they
wero eating, she herself, at her father's
bidding, went out to take tho saddle
otl'Bucno, his horse, and givo him food.
As she approached the door once more
a few minutes after, she heard words
which caused her to stop and listen.
"I don't like ter say anything against
thet kid o' yourn, neighbor," one of
the men was saying, "but it hcz kinder
seemod ter mo all ther while's though
she sorter lied some' at on hor mind
like. Ye don't s'poso she knows any
thing 'bout thet young fellorarter all?"
Sacramento's father laughed at this,
as though it was too absurd to bo con
sidered. .Tuo other, however, was not to bo
laughed out of his suspicions.
"For all we know, sho may hev hid
him somowhoro on the prommysis."
"It's easy enough to see," returned
tho proprietor of tho said "prerumy
sis,'1 testily. "Whore d'ye think slio's
hid himP In her bod-room?"
As he said this, Sacramento, who
was now near enough to see Into tho
kitchen, raw her father rise from his
chair and stop to tho door of the room
where she concealed the fugitive. Her j
hoart almost stopped beating as she
saw him push open tho door and enter
tho room, followed by his companions.
"Wo'll mako a clus search of It,
while we're about it," she heard him
: And then she stood there in terrible
suspense upon tho porch? expecting
to hear the shout that would follow the
discovery of the fugitive.
But no such shout was heard; and
instead of it, a moment later the two
men came out again, her father still
laughing at his friends.
What could it mean? Had the young
man been able to conceal himself in the
room and so evade their search? That
was not possible. Then sho thought of
tho window. Could he have escaped
from the room by that? The window
was so small she could scarcely bellovo
that ho could have crept through. And
yet he must have done so.
She went hurridly to the back of the
house and then down beyond the horse
sheds. No one could bo seen. She
halted a moment undor a live-oak tree
just at the edge of the garden. The
evening was very calm and still, and
tho twilight shadows were deepening
fast. Was it the rustling of the wind
in the boughs overhead that caught
her ear? She listened.
"Hist! I rm hero in tho tree."
The words came in a distinct whisper
from directly above her.
She stood there and thought a single
moment before replying. Then sue
said: "You must get away from here
at once," in an eager whisper. "One
of the men suspects something, and
they may at any moment make asoarch
of the placo. I am going into the
house a minute. Get down at once
and go through the garden and across
tho trail to a spring that you will find
there. It's at the foot of a big cotton
wood tree. Stay right there until I
Then sho went hurridly to the house.
The three men wero still sitting at the
tablo and Sacramento felt rather than
saw that one of them still regarded her
suspiciously as she came in. She did
not speak to ihem at all, but went di
rectly through tho kitchen to her own
room and in a moment more camo out,
went about her work in the kitchen
and took up a pail, apparently to go to
the spring for water.
Ten minutes later, standing in the
shadows of the cottonwood, young
Somers heard a step, and then Sacra
mento, leading Bueno all saddled and
bridled, appeared. Ho started for
ward. "Hush!" sho said; "they may come
at any moment Listen to what I say.
Your life depends on it. You must

hand. "Can you remember?" she de
manded. "I can, but I can never forget "
"Never mind that. Here, take this.

ino young man still bad hold of her
hand. The tears came into his eyes.
The next moment he was gome.
me next morning Sacramento told
her father the story and coaxed him
into forgiving her. And the following
afternoon a man brought Bueno over
from the railroad town, and then she
knew the fugitive was safe.
Six weeks later a lawyer from Santa
Barbara appeared with a letter from
VY alter Somers. He was with his
frieuds in New York. He begged Sac
ramento to accept, as a gift of grati
tude, at least the amount of the reward
that had been offered.
And so it was that she went down to

The Insignificance of Humanity.
A spectator who.seping a bubble float

anvono who thought that tho river out
of which the bubble arose and into
which it would presently elapsn de

a disciple of M. Comte, who, centering
all his higher sentiments on humanity,
holds it absurd to let either thought
or feeling be occupied with that great
stream ol creative power, unlimited in
space or in time, of which humanity is.a
transitory product Even if, instead
of being the dull, leaden-hued things
it is, the bubble humanity had reached
that stage of iridescence of which,
happily, a high sample of man or
woman sometimes shows us a begin

was in it of beauty to that infinite and
eternal energy out of which humanity
has quite recently emerged, and into
which it must in courso of time, sub

typos of creatures which have severally
illustrated the truth that the life and
death of the individual prefigure in
brief space the life and death of the race,
so with this highost type of creature,
man: a beginning and end to humanity
are no less certain than the beginning
and end to tho human being. And to
suppose that this relatively evanescent
form of existence ought to occupy our
minds so exclusively as to leave no
space for a consciousness of that ulti
mato existence of which It Is but one
form out of multitudes an ultimate

infinitely varied ways before humanity
arose, and will be manifested in in
finitely varied other ways whon human
