Copyright 1909. by American Press As
sociation SjARRIXGTON was completing
his first year of practice when
Theodore Tuppenheim arrived
In Knuckieville. Mr. Tuppen
heim was selling stock in the Charita
ble Gold Mining company at 5 cents per
share, price to advance to 10 cents at
the end of thlrty"days. Incidentally he
found time to foster in Barrington's
bosom the spirit of discontent which
ten months' fruitless waiting for clients
had engendered. If he were a clever,
clean cut young man like. Barrington,
did Barrington know what he'd do?
Move -west. He wouldn't fritter away
his time in a mossbacked New Eng
land hamlet where people looked down
on a fellow just because they'd, known
him fell his life and could remember
when he was a little shaver and went
with patches on his trousers. No. sir.
He'd Just gather together his earthly
possessions and take the first train
for Gilt Gulch, Nev. There was the
coming town; there lay the oppor
tunity for an able young man fo rise.
No reason in the world why he should
not be in the United States senate
within five years. That would be com
ing some? Well, everybody and. every
thing came some in that country.
Why, sir, where the thriving city of
Gilt Gulch now stood there had been
less than two years since naught but
sagebrush and alkalL And now look
at itjust look at it! Six thousand
inhabitants and more coming by every
train! Simply couldn't get houses up
fast enough for 'em. Had to camp out
in tents. And every blamed one of
'em making money. Why, sir. you
couldn't find a bo5tblack in Gilt Gulch
who was worth less than fifty thou

ntMnuience was quite too much for

Laundered, Outing and
tjorrington. He 'adjusted his affairs
n Knuckieville. which was no very
difficult matter, took tearful leave of
numerous relatives and of a certain
pretty damsel, who was not yet a rel
ative, but had rashly promised to be
come one whenever Barrington's in
come should sufiice for the support of
two persons, and hied himself to Gilt
Gulch, promising to send souvenir post
cards from every municipality he pass
ed through on the way.
Now, underneath the lurid exagger
ation with which Mr. Theodore Tup
penheim had clothed his narrative of
the rise of Gilt Gulch there lay a re
spectable substratum of truth, and the
combination of Barrington's ingenious
appearance with certain letters of In
troduction to persons financially prom
inent in Gilt Gulch, which Mr. Tup
penheim procured for him, resulted in
his speedily establishing a thriving
practice. For the most part it was
work in connection with the location
of mining claims, and, besides numer
ous fees in cash, Barrington acquired
several claims of his own, which he
disposed of profitably.
In brief, at the end of a year Bar
rington had waxed so prosperous as to
feel himself warranted in marrying.
The Knuckieville Weekly Times an
nounced editorially that it understood
that young Mr. Barrington, for whom.
Its readers would remember, the Times
had predicted a brilliant career when
he hung out his shingle in Knuckie
ville, was now one of the leading men
in the west, and the other village
maidens were openly jealous of Susie
Cutler, whose good fortune it was to
be to marry a millionaire.
But Susie herself had no illusions.
She even refused to permit Barrington
to come east for the marriage. He?
childhood lessons of thrift -and econ
omy had taken deep root in her mind,
and she would not, she said, have the
price of a round trip railroad ticket
thrown away. If Barrington felt that
he must spend the money, let him buy
a cabinet organ or a secondhand piano
for the front parlor. They would be
married in their own house at Gilt
Gulch and after that take a little wed
ding trip to Colorado Springs or maybe
Denver. Perhaps, being a prudent
damsel, Susie desired to have a glance
at Gilt 'Gulch before she committed
"herself irrevocably. At any rate, mat
ters dad Deen tnus arranged, and, the
Corner Overland and
date set lor the wedding being but
two days away and Susie due to ar
rive that afternoon, Barrington was in
the state of ecstasy appropriate to such
circumstances. It was in this moment
of supreme happiness that misfortune
The work Barrington had been doing
requires to be performed with great
accuracy; otherwise it is not only
valueless, but may be the occasion of
great loss to the client. Now, it is
possible that Barrington possessed
genius. People who have that, you
know, are apt to be careless as to de-
tails. Perhaps It was merely that,
being deeply in love, he could not con
centrate hir mind upon his work. How
ever that may be, Hartford, the attor
ney whose office was next to Barring
ton's, had discovered in tfie course of
an investigation of the records that
Barrington had filed documents con
taining serious errors. He spoke to
Barrington about it In a perfectly
friendly -way. Barrington received his
kindly admonitions with a contempt
which he was at no pains to disguise.
Why should he pay heed to the re
marks of a man who wore baggy
trousers and long hair and played faro,
to say nothing of becoming intoxicat
ed now and then 2 He knew well
enough what inspired these critical ob
servations. Hartford was jealous of
the prosperity which Barrington had
so rapidly achieved. Let him stop
saviling, said the virtuous Barrington
to himself, and seek success by lead
ing a sober life, as he did.
Feeling that he had been insulted,
Barrington thereafter confined his
communications with Hartford to a
curt "How are you?" accompanied by
a barely perceptible nod when they
chanced to meet. It was with a good
deal of surprise, therefore, that Hart
ford, glancing up from his rather di
lapidated desk as he heard the door
open, perceived Barrington entering
his office. One had not to look at Bar
rington twice to be convinced that he
was badly frightened. His eyes, which
ordinarily regarded those about him
with an air of easy toleration, were
wide with terror, and his well chisel
ed features, customarily wearing an
air of placid conceit, were now white
and drawn. His manner toward Hart
ford was no longer supercilious. All
his carefully constructed attitude of
dignity had vanished. '
"You've been in this part of the
country longer than I have, Hartford,"
said he. "I want your advice as a
a friend, you know."
Hartford nodded and withdrew his
pipe from his lips.
"Sure," said he succinctly. "What's
"Why, you see," said Barrington, "it
seems that in filing the papers for Jim
Busby on that last mining claiinJf
his I made a slight error. I have been
doing a large business, you know,
Hartford a very large business and
it was inevitable that I should make
a mistake occasionally. It seems that
some unscrupulous persons have taken
advantage of this purely technical slip
and have jumped Busby's claim, and
he is very much exercised about it."
"I should think he might be," Hart
"Yes," repeated Barrington, "he is
much exercised and quite unreason
able about It He came into my
office a fey? moments ago and demand
ed an explanation. Of course I couMn't
tell him anything except that it was
just a mistake such as any man might
make, and he said I was lying to him.
He said I was too smart to make a
fool break like that and that I was in J
with the gang that were trying to do J
him out of a claim that would have
made him rich. I argued with him s
the best I could, but it didn't budge j
him. He said he didn't see that It
made much difference, anyhow, wheth- i
r , -. i ' w V c i
either way I hadn't any right to live,
and he wound up by saying that he'd
just go down to the Jolly Dog and get
a few drinks to put him in the right
frame of mind and then he'd come
back and reduce the membership of
the Gilt Gulch bar by one."
It is significant of Hartford's broad
and tolerant temperament that he did
not remind B'arrington that he had
previously predicted such a catastro
phe as had now befallen. Neverthe
less a slight -vglimmer of amusement
stole across his face.

Ro3.roy, a man who has for 20 years
been delving into the mysteries of tne
occult, making a scientific study of the
various methods of reading tho lives
of people, seems to have reached a
higher round in the ladder of fame
than his predecessors. Letters are
pouring into his office from all parts
of the ,world telling of the benefits de
rived from his advice. Many of ms
patrons look upon him as a man gifted
with some strange, mysterious power,
but he modestly asserts that what he
accomplishes is due alone to an under
standing of natural laws. .
He is a man of kindly feeling toward
humanity, and his manner and tone
immediately impress one with his sin
cere belief in his work. A nuga stack
of grateful letters from people who
have received readings from him adds
to other convincing proof as to his
abilitv. Even Astrologers and Palm
ists admit that his system surpasses
anything yet introduced.
The Rev, G. C. H. Hasskarl. Ph. D.,
Pastor of St. Paul's Evangelical Luth
eran church, in a letter to Prof. Rox
rov, says: "You are certainly the
greatest specialist and master of your
profession. Everyone consulting you
will marvel at the correctness of your
detailed personal readings and advice.
Tne most skeptical will consult you
again and again after corresponding
with you once."

or Miss) and also copy the following

"I should appreciate it very much,"
"Well, you shall have it," said Hart
ford laconically, rapping the bowl of
his pipe against the heel of his shoe.

Then Hartford looked at his watch
and found that it was twenty minutes
"You'll have to move lively, my
boy," he said. "Keep an eye open for
Jim, and if the coast is clear take the
2:30. If it isn't, walk pver to Sand
City and take the next ne there."
"But about Susie' Barrington re
monstrated. "Pshaw!" growled Hartford. "That s
easy enough. Leave a note for her
with the station master, telling her to
go back to Colorado Springs and you'll
meet her there. If you don't have time
to write a note, bave the station mas
ter tell her you've been called away on
a life and death matter and that she's
to go to the hotel and wait until you
send her word. Don't you worry about
the girl. She'll prefer a slightly de
layed wedding to an expedited funeral.
Hurry up now. You've just about time
to make it." v
As he slipped down the main street
of Gilt Gulch on hisNway to the sta
tion Barrington caught a glimpse of
Jim Busby's gaunt profile as he stood
at the bar of the Jolly Dog, -his back
toward the entrance. Barrington's in
dolent heart rejoiced as he reflected
that the ten mile walk to Sand City
would now be unnecessary. It was
just twenty-eight minutes past 2 when
he reached the station. He gave the
necessary instructions concerning Su-
sie to tne stanon master u.au iuw
out upon the platform. But the train
which made up at unt liuicn was not
yet ready to depart. A freight car had
left the rails, blocking the track. Five,
ten. fifteen minutes passed, and still
the obstruction remained. .Barrington
grew uneasy. Jim Busby might at an
moment deem that he had imbibed a
quantity of liquor commensurate with I
his ronteinnlated task and bejcin tol
search for him. But at the end of
twenty minutes, to his great relief, the
perspiring train crew succeeded in re-
placing the derailed car, and the
freight train pulled slowly out upon a
siding. Even as it did so Barrington
caught sight of the 2:50 train as it
rounded the curvejust beyond the sta
tion. A moment later Susie .Cutler, her
trim little figure set off by a skillfully
tailored gray traveling suit and her
face wearing the look of determination
befitting a girl who'had just completed
a journey nearly across the continent
alone, descended to the platform of
Gilt Gulch station. Barrington rushed
toward her joyfully. Within three
steps of her he encountered an obsta-cle--a
very serious obstacle. This was
nothing less than the muzzle of a re
volver. Behind the revolver stood Mr.
"Now, young man," said Mr. Busby,
we'll attend to your little matter, and
we won't be long doing it"
Then Busby became suddenly con-
scious of a voice, 6vidently feminine,
proceeding from some point In his
rear and of the light pressure of a
hand upon his arm.
"Do you know," said the voice, "it's
dreadfully careless of you pointing
that thing at anybody so. Why, It
might go off.V
Turning about. Busby looked into
the piquant features of Susie Cutler.
He decided unhesitatingly that, not
withstanding some freckles and the
tendency of the nose to turn up, it was
a rather pleasing face to view.
"So it might," said Busby slowly.
"So it might."
"Well, then, stop aiming it at Har
Mr. Barrington," she commanded.
tVirou make me nervous."
"Fact is," said Busby, "I was sort
of planning to shoot Mr. Barrington."
He had lowered his weapon and
spoke very calmly and deliberately.
"What!" shrieked the girl. "You

live In, where a man goes out to kill
another as coolly as he'd eat his
"That's the way -with all you folks
from out Boston way," grumbled Bus
by. "You're always getting murder
and the administration of justice
mixed. I ain't going to murder him.
I'm going to execute him. He's done
me dirt, and if he ain't killed he'll do
somebody else dirt. So for the good
of everybody he'd ought to be shot.
What do you care anyway? Ain't no

"Why, no," she answered in some
confusion, "he isn't a relative exactly
that is, he"
A gleam of comprehension shone in
"Come to think of it," said he, "I

"Yes," she answered simply, 'Tin

me from doing you a great favor.

The girl did not wait for him to fin
ish. She transferred her grasp from
Busby's arm to that of Barrington,
who during the preceding conversation
had stood silent, his face white, his
limbs trembling, cold sweat beading
"Come, Harry," she said imperiously.
Meekly, with bowed head and down
cast eyes, Barrington suffered her to
lead him aboard the train, which was

of the platform and burst into a roar
of laughter. Long after 'the train had
disappeared around the curve below
the station the station master found
him there, his broad shoulders still
shaking with merriment.

The repartee has become traditional1

Conkling was speaking, and Thur
