The women of the east. secure in o
their guarded homes, have little con
reption of the perils which in ysare th
past attended their pioneer sisters on fo
the frontier, They may have a thee- pl
retical idea, it is true, but one muqt M
have had actual experience to realize
fully the constant dangers that beset
these brave souls.
The Williams ranch at Rockdalec h,
Wyoming, lay near the foot of the be
Medicine Bow mountains, and was
40 miles from railroad station and be
postoflice. A young married couple mb
had settled there, and invested their
savings in cattle and horses. They aI
throve and were happy, until one
unfortunate day, when Mrs. Williams' to
brother, Addison White, arrived from
a mining camp in California `where he
had been prospecting and working for nc
two or three yearn. In boyish glee he a
produced from his capacious pockets
fIur stout buckskin bags tied with nc
i thongs, which he flung upon the kitch- bl
p en table. te
'Open em, Mab," he said to Mrs. Wil- bh
SIams. She untied one of the bags,
tu ned it upside down, and was as
tot.ished to see an avalanche of ht
t bright, gold pieces roll over the table its
and down upon the floor. th
'0, Ad," said Mabel, pursuing the
spinning runaways," what does it
mean? Where did you get them?" bt
"They're my savings of the last four ra
t years," replied Addison, proudly. C
"Each of those bags has twenty-five
$20 gold pieces in it."
"'I'wo thousand dollars! 'And you
brought it all the way from the rail
road station alone on horseback!"
exclaimed his sister, aghast. "How
very imprudent! Don't you know this
country is full of desperadoes? Why if
didn't you deposit it in a savings
"Because I want to invest it right
away, and didn't want to be bothered
putting it in and then drawing it right
out again," returned Addison, with a
self-satisfied air, walking up and down
the room with his hands in his pock- P
ets. "I'm going to leave it in your r
hands, sis, for safo keeping. Mean- tI
while I'll look around, and when I ti
strike a nice little location in a mining tI
camp for a general merchandise store, b
I'll use the money in buying stock." a
Being thus left in possession of the d
treasure, Mabel cast about for a suit- 8
able hiding place; but the secluded F
little nooks, the corner cupboards, the 1
mysterious oak closets and big, ram- a
bling garrets peculiar to old-fashioned t
eastern houses were totally lacking In
this small, bare walled, three roomed a
log cabin. a
First Mabel loosened a board in the t
floor and put the four buckskin bags I
underneath. It seemed to her excited Z
imagination 'that any one might no- t
tice that that particular board had t
been pried up and nailed down again;
and besidep, the flst thing a robber i
in search of concealed wealth would a
do would be to look under the floor. I
So, after a few days, she removed the
four bags and put them with affected 1
s carelessness in the dark recesses of a a
little cupboard where she kept her bot
tles and frying pans.
N But this was worse still. Her eyes 1
, seemed fixed in a telltale gase on the I
place where the treasure lay concealed.
SSo one day after dark she pried up I
one of the flat stones which formed
part of a walk leading to the spring
house, dug out some of the soil under
neath to make room, placed the four
little bags therein, and then carefully a
replaced the stone.
It was not surprising that Mrs. Wil- I
liams was a little apprehensive, for
ahe was usually quite alone during the I
Sdaytime. Her brother had gone on his
trip to look up a mining camp, and her
husband was busy branding calves and
colts at a roundup seven miles away.
Nevertheless, Mabel was by no means
a timid woman. She broke all her
husband's colts, and was never so
happy as when conquering a mettle
some bronco. She was now sulidufing
a particularly fine thoroughbred colt 1
naplned Taurus, which was kept in the
stable instead of being allowed to fol
low the herd, much to his anger and
One morning, while she was en
gaged with household duties in the 4
cabin, a loud, ringing blow sounded
upon the door. Upon opening it, she I
was confronted by two rough looking
men, one of whom covered her with a 4

"I give you my word of honor," said
Mabel, speaking calmly, "that the only
money in the house is about $50 that
I have on hand for household ex
penses. It is in the next room."
"Go get it, then, and be lively," said
the man with the revolver. "As for
the $2000, I know it's here. We'll see
about that afterward."
Mabel went into the adjoining room,
seized her husband's rifle that stood
in a corner, slammed the door shut
and shot a thick wooden bolt into

But now Taurus' blood was up. At

Whether the robbers' horses were
already Jaded, or whether Taurus'
speed was. too great for them at best,
the desperadoes soon gave up the
chase. But the colt did not slacken
his speed till, trembling, wild-eyed,
his flanks reeking with blood and
foam, he stopped at the round up, at
seven miles away. d(
Breathless and dizzy, Mabel slid to
the ground, and in a few words in

place at the cabin. In a few moments V"
Mr. Williams and four of his men had
saddled their horses and were on their W

d- they have been the exception, and not

ployed in the American whale fisher?

and twenty-two schooners, with a total
tonnage of 233,262. Today in this In
destry there are only twenty-seven
ships and barks and thirteen schoon
era, with a total tonnage of only 8,746.
The leatest tonnage sails from the
port df New Bedford, Mass., bein
nearly half the entire whaling ton

comes San Francisco, while the only
other whaling ports are Boston and
Provincetown, with only eight echoon

Russia had acquired all Siberia and

straits to establish herself In Alaska
before our colonies had united as a
nation. The landing east of the Ural

territory stretching from the Caspian

has a desire to hear "Tim" hold forth pro
verbially. One day lasetweek a stranger ame
in for a shave, and a be- stretched himself
wearily in the chair, Tim prepared to lather
him. The man incidently remarke4 that he
had intended coming in earlier in the day but
had been prevented. "Well, It's better Wsle
than never," msaid Tim, smilingly. "Not al
ways," replied the stranger, slowly. "How
about losing yoar pooketboot I never last
one until yesterday--never did, but I would
sooner have kept it. Now, why was it better
formetolose it tethan not t all " Tim
acknowledged that he was wrong and the man
continued: "Don't know what I weaould have
done in my prediosment; only sa old asquain

twenty to go on with." "Ah," ehipped In
Tim, "that was good A friend i need is a

man who was being shaved. "There you're
dead wrong again. How an a friend in need
be a friend indeed? Ihave a good many friends
who re always in needand they are a nusaeas

problem over in his mind sad reketatl ad

most made up his mind not to speak agaoa
when the stranger ontinued, '"es sir, they
are nuisanes. Why, one of thim fellows ha
been calling on me for the past year and
thretems to get even with me som way if I

me at every visit." "Oh, I wouldn't mind
that," renlied Tim unoonseoaauly, "you know
the old adage 'A barking dog never bite.'"'
"There you are again," said the "shvee " as
he wiped a little lather from the corner of
his mouth. "Say, what do yeou know about
dogs, sayway, that yeou talk in such a lly
strain Have you ever ventured to go too

did he do to you ? Did yopmver kow a bark
