they entered slaowt four men arry
lug a fifth, their bodies incrusted
with snow, the man they bore an us
seen shape covered with whitened
rugs from which an arm hung, a limp
hand touching the floor. Questions
and answers, now clear and sharp, fol
lowed them, like notes upon the text
of the inert form:
"Where'd you get him?"
"About five miles below on the
main road. One of the horses almost
stepped on him. He was right in the
path, but he was all sprinkled over
"He's not dead,'is he?"
"Pretty near, I guess. We've pumped
whisky into him. but he ain't shows a
sign of its."
"Who is he"
"Search me. I ain't seen him my
self yet. Just as we got him the lan
tern wet out."
There was a sofa in the hall and
they laid -their burden there, the
crowd edging tn on them, horrified, In
terested, hungrily peering. Rose
could see their bent, expressive backs
and the craning napes of their necks.
Then a sharp order from the doctor
drove them back. sheepish, tramping
on one another's toes, bunched
against the wall and still avidly star
ing. As their ranks broke, the young
girl had a sudden, vivid glimpse of
the man, his bead and part of his
chest uncovered. Her heart gave a
leap of pity and she made a move
meat from the doorway, then stopped.
The lost traveler, that an hour before
had almost assumed the features of a
friend, was a complete stranger that
she had never seen before.
He looked Itke a dead man. His
face, the chin up, the lips parted un,
der the fringe of a brown mustache,
was a marble white, and showed a
gray shadow In the cheek. The hair
aon his forehead, thawed by the heat,
was lying in damp half-curled semi
circles, dark against the pallid skin.
There was a ring on the hand that
still hung limp on the Boor. The doc
tor, muttering to himself, pulled open
the shirt and was feeling the heart,
when Perley, who had flown into the
bar ror more whisky, emerged, a glass
in his hand. As his eye fell upon the
man, he stopped, stared, and then ex
claimed in loud-voloed amase:
"My God-why, It's Dominick Ryan!
Look here, Governor"-to Cannon.
who was standing by his daughter in
the parlor doorway, "eome and see for

Cannon pushed between the inater
vening men and bent over the proe
"That's who it Is," he said slowly
and unemotionally. "It's Domlnick
Ryan, all right, Well, by ginger!"
and he turned and looked at the
amased Innkeeper, "that's the queer
et thing I ever saw. What's brought
him up here?"
Perley, his glass snatched from him
by the doctor who seemed entirely in
disereat to their recognition of his
patient, shrugged helplessly.
"Blest if I knew," he said, staring
aimlessly about him. "He was here
last summer shing. But there aia't
as fshing noew. God, ain't t a good
thing that operator at Rocky Bar had
the sense to telegraph up!"
Nerse and Patient.
When Dominick retuaned to con
slousmess he lay for a space looking
directly in trest of him, thea moved
his head and let his eyes sweep the
walls. They were ale walls of white
plaster, naked of a adornment. The
light from a shaded lamp lay acress

of yellow, so elear that he could sme

"Oh, yes," he answered with an air
of weary recollection, "I was going
to walk there from Rocky Bar, but
the snow came down too hard, and the
wind-you could hardly stand against
it! It was a terrible pull. Perley's
Hotel at Antelope. Of course, I know
all about it. I was here last summer
for two weeks fishing."
She stretched out her hand for a
glass, across the top of which a book
rested. He followed the movement
with a mute lxity.
"This is your medicine." she said,
taking the book of the glass. "You
were to take it at five but I didn't like
to wake you."
She dipped a spoon into the glass
and held it out to him. But the young
man felt too ill to bother with medi
cine and, as the spoon touched his
lips, he gave his head a slight Jerk
and the liquid was spilt on the coun
terpane. She looked at it for a rueful
moment, then said, as if with gather
"But you must take It I think per
haps I gave it wrong. I ought to have
lifted you up. It's easier that way,"
and before he could answer she
slipped her arm under his head and
raised it, with the other hand setting
the rim of the glass against his lips.
He swallowed a mouthful and felt her
arm sliding from behind his head. He
had a hasy consciousness that a per
tfume came from her dress, and for
the first time he wondered who she
was. Wondering thus, his eyes again
followed her hand putting back the
glass, and watched it, white in the
gush of lamplight, carefully replacing
the book. Then she turned toward
him with the same slight, soft smile.
"Who are you?" he said, keeping
his hollowed efes hard on her.
"I'm Rose Cannon," she answered.
"Rose Cannon from San Francisco."
"Oh. yes," with a movement of com
prehension, the name striking a chord
of memory. "Rose Cannon from San
Francisco, daughter of Bill Cannon.
Of course I know."
He turned his head away from her
and said dryly and without interest:
"I thought it was some one else."
She bent down and said, speaking
slowly and clearly as though to a
"The storm has broken the wires,

send your mother word, so you needn't

of us know your wife's address. If
you could tell us-"
She stopped. He had begun to frown
and then shut his eyes with an expres
sion of weariness.
"That doesn't matter," he said.
"Don't bother abodt it. Let her alone."
Again there was one of those pauses
which seemed to him so long. He gave
a sigh and moved restlessly, and she
"Are your feet very painful?"
"Yes, pretty bad," he answered.
"What's the matter with them?"
"They were frost-bitten, one partly

interested. It was as If they were
some one else's feet, only they hurt
violently enough to obtrude them
selves upon his attention. "Thank

He felt very tired and heard, as

Some time later an he emerged

FESTIVITIES OF THE PAPUANS
Poor Creatures Have Little Time to
Spare for Amusement-Women
Are the Workers.
New York.-Festive seasons are
few and far between among the
Papuans. Poor creatures! They have
little time to spare for amusement,
their thoughts being entirely directed
toward the supply of sufficient food.
This statement refers more particu
larly to the women, who are the work
ers and chief food collectors, the men
varying their time between occasional
hunting trilq and lolling about In
blissful Idleness on the sands oppo
site the village. The Papuan male
evidently has a rooted dislike for
work and ideas of his own as to the
duties of wives.
In the month of May the principal
festival of the year takes place--close
ly connected, as might be expected,
with the all-impot!tant iuestion of
food. Pigs are not bred in villages.
but are run down in the s,!ngle when
very young and then brought up
among the people, subsisting precari
ously on the miscellaneous ,lobris dis
carded by their human com.panions.
The slaughter of these pig: is made
the occasion for a dance any, general
jollificaton. On one occasion for sev
eral days friends from the neighbor
ing villages had been collecting at
Partlmu, straining the house accom
modation to the utmost and causing
intease excitement. On the night prev
ious to the day of days a great dance
took place, entirely on the part of the
women, for the men-noble creatures
-sever demean themselves by join
ting In such frivolities. The dancing
takes the form of a curious shufflin
of the feet and much undulation of
the body. The greater the movement
of the latter, eombined with the least
action of the lgs, the nearer is the
artist to perfection, according to Pa
