nant expression on her face deepened war
in intensity.
For Miss Kefyon had been led to ex- for
pect a very different sort of place.
She had been told that Bang-Up City eve
was a species of earthly paradise,whode
inhabitants were so well satisfied with
life there that they did not care to
make even a short excursion out into 1
the outer world. so
"From what 1 can see of it," us
she murmured, "I cannot understand knI
how anyone can ever be induced to re- lo
main in the place over night Where doi
is all this western bustle of which beI
have heard? Where is the enterprise ws
which builds complete new cities in a

upon."co
She paused, irresolute, upon the

Rose Kenyon was a very fair vision p
to gaze upon. Young-not over twenty da
-and pretty - decidedly pretty- she th
was the kind of woman who can be do tb

Suitors were no novelty to Rose. She sh
had had many lovers, but had sent
them all away. Not one of them had L
ever approached her ideal sl
And now she had been allured to the
Rockies by the illiterate invitation of
three men, who subscribed themselves ,,
as the school trustees of Bang-Up City. T
They had sonfessed, in their queer 9
letter, that Bang-Up City was as yet
-without schools of any description, but d
they had invited her, at a salary which F
bad astonished the New England
ashool-teacher, to come out and change t
the state of affalrs at Bang-Up City.
And Rose had accepted. She had ex
pected that the trustees would be'at
the station to meet the first teacher of
their new community, but there was
not a soul near the depot. Then Rose
remembered that she had not told
them on which day she expected to ar
rive.
Finally Rose's eye fell upon a noide
script-looking Chinaman who was dom
ing leisurely up the road. le was not
an inviting specimen of the Mongolian
race. To begin with, he was dirty. To
idd to that he was very ragged. And.
