Sam remarked: "It htoks bad for thcr

A conblp of the party volunteered.
The men separated. Tart of hcm

ers turned their horses at right angles
ut the former line of man'h and loped
on toward the easterner's cabin.
The easterner, otherwise slack Craig.
of whom they had been speaking, had
leen in Sage Har onlv a short time. He
vas a tenderfoot, out and out. When
he came to the bar he brought his wife
with him. Slie was a bright, pretty
little woman, but they hardly knew
her in the settlement. Craig always
bid been reserved, and the two had
k'pt by themselves in the little cabin
whi"h stood a mile or so away from
town. So Sage Har had come to eon
sider the pair a "queer lot, and to
designate them as the easterner on'
his wife, whi-'h was intended to be
anything but complimentary.
W hen the trailing party reined up in
front of Craig's cabin they found the
object of their search sitting on a log

He sprang from his seat, throwing back
hi- blind to bis hip. Hut the others had
bim covered, and his hand dropped
loosely by his side again. "It's a
lie," li" said, "and you know it!"
.hist then a woman's figure appeared
in the cabin doorway. It was Craig's

anxiously, seeing her husband's att
Craig spoke np quickly: "(Jo back.
I olly! They're got up a dirty story
about me and want me to go to the Bar.
Hut I'll come back in a little while.
Sam had a great1 ftar of women's
tongues and tears and immediately or
dered Craig to mount a horse which an
other man at a word secured from the
stable near by. The woman had looked
on dumbyt seeming hardly to compre
hend what was taking place, but as she
saw her husband walk over toward the
horse, she ran to him, and threw both
arms about him, holding him tight to
her. He unclasped her arms gently
after an instant, and mounted the horse
and, turning in the saddle, waved his
hand to her. "hen thev rode away.
and. after they had gone a piece, Sam
looked back and saw the woman still
standing there, her hands loosely locked
before her, watching them with wide-
open eyes. "She's grit ter th" back
bone," muttered that worthy, and
lashed his horse into a gallop.
All Sage Har crowded aronnd the
party when they drew rein in town,
ami there were some who would have
strung Craig np on the spot when
Sam had told the story. Sage Har was
in that, stage of progress where horse
stealing was a capital offense and
short shrift was granted to offenders.
Hut Sam's protest that nothing should
be done until the Mines party returned
was heeded, and the prisoner was put
in an empty cabin, tied band and foot,
several of the men agreeing to stand
The afternoon waned away and even
ing came and the Mines party did not
make its appearance. So Craig was
given something to eat and then was
fastened tightly once more, and the
men rolled themselves up in their blan
kets in front of the cabin about eleven
o'clock, leaving only Jo Stetson on guard.
Stetson sat himself down on a stump
and lit a pipe, and with his rifle across
his knees fell to thinking about some
mavericks he had branded tnat day.
Presently he imagined he heard a soft
step from the prairie. He raised his
head and listened. .Inst then the moon
showed a rim beyond a sailing cloud,
and its light fell on a figure a wom
an's figure making its war toward the
cabin. Stetson rose to his feet, letting
his rifle-butt drop on the ground, and
curiously surveyed the woman, who was
close to him now. It was the east
Is he in there? she said,
trembling a bit.
'Yes, answered .Stetson.
Can't 1 see him? she asked. "Only
for a moment." she added.
'Can't do it, mar'm, said Stetson.
For a moment she was quiet-, looking
longingly toward the cabin and clasp
ing and unclasping her hands softly.
The man hoped she would go. He had
hated to say no and be didn't know how
long his determ-nation to refuse would
last "Bui they say they're going to
try him toutorrow, and I mayn't get
another chuene." She looked at him I

Then he'atood outside the door cursing
himself. Presently there was a rap
from the inside of the cabin, and, much
relieved, he undid the door. Hnt he

rifle as he stood aside to allow her to

and bent to fasten the door. As he did
so, he, felt a tingling-cald metal against
his head, and-hcard in her. Toice, now
without a tremble: -
"Put up your hands and do it quick
ly!" The order was so distinctly put
and so emphatically backed up by the
cold metal, which Stetson knew only
too well was the dangerous end of a re
volver, that he did not hesitate. As he
threw up his hands, the door was
pulled open from the inside and a man
dashed out and melted in the darkness
of the prairie. A moment more and

In an Instant Stetson was after her,
and, wild at being outwitted, had run
her down and caught her before she had
gone fifty yards. As he grasped her by

not seem to hear what they said. De
spite their chagrin at having been
worsted by a woman, the men could
not but admire her pluck and skill.
Then they argued as to what they
should do with her. and finally decided
to take her into town as soon as it was
light. They locked her in the cabin
and then sat np and talked the rest of
the night They felt that it would be
useless to attempt to trail Craig in the
dark. and. to tell the truth, they were
just a bit fearful that the woman would
escape them unless they kept a sharp
When morning came a big party set
off in pursuit of Craig. Hut they had
scant hope of overtaking him with a
horse under him and his many hours'
start. The easterner's wife still re
mained locked in the cabin. Sage
Har for once found itself non
plused. Law and order had been re
versed by a woman and the town had
the offender in custody. Hut sm-'ke and
ponder as it might. Sage Har was at a
loss to know how lr proceed. All the
laws of the settlement, unwritten
though they were, had sprung from an
anile sense of frontier needs, and re
ferral to men. There was an nndefina-
ble feeling among the Sage Har solons
that these laws could not be applied
with propriety to women, and so they
talked much, smoked and drank rom-h
more, and did - nothing. When the
Hines parly came in, tired, hungry and
empty handed, no solution of the diffi
culty presented itself, and so. with ad-
mirabl judgment, the town decided to
free itself of further responsibility by
setting the woman at liberty. Thi

Two days later, jttst as Sage Har was
preparing its evening meal, two men
were seen riding over a swell from the
northeast. Five horses were driven
loosely before them. When the men
got nearer the town one of them was
rceogni7.id as the easterner. He was
riding bare-headed, and beside hiramde
another, dark and swarthy, his arms
bound to his sids. his horse led by
Craig. All Sage Har assmhled about
the party, while taig told the story of
how he had ridden away that night

following it had brought the Mexican
thief to terms with a shot from his
rifle, and then came back. And when
he had done there were cheers for the
easterner such as the town hadn't had
a chance to relieve itself of for a long
while, and to this day there is not a
man in Sage H:ir but touches his slouch

A Swim In l.orrr Hnrirmh with a Shark
for a Companion,
t'en. Paske, the author of a book oi
travels in Lower Hurmah. says that the
residents pointed out to him one par
ticular spot on the sea shore where
bathing would be perfectly safe; it way
a triangular area of water bounded hp
a ledge of rocks leading to the light
house and the sunken reef that joined
it, at an angle, with the shore. Men
had bathed there times without num
ber, though a hand dangled in the
water outside the reef would have been
snapped off in a trice by a shark.
Provided with towels, we were sorn
on the beach, and I. more impatient
than my companion, was the first to
traverse the intervening strip of sand.

"Come in, as fast as you can!"

back fin of a shark, raised, doubtless.

Fast as I could swim, my progress
was but crawling compared to the dart
of the fish, which presently laid hold of
my ankle, his serrated teeth cutting to
the bone like a razor.
I thought I was within my depth, en
deavored to touch bottom, and sank.
The shark had instantly relinquished
his hold, but I fully expected another
attack. I reached the shore, however.
without further molestation, for the
creature was darting about in all di
rections confused by the pieces of rock
which my friend continued flinging at
him with unflagging energy.
n great pain, and rather faint from
loss of blood, I scrambled to the s?nd,
and lay there exhausted. The next
thing I knew was that my foot was

friend was by my side.
The appearance of the shark, in this
hitherto safe expanse of water, was ac
counted for by an abnormally high
tide, which had brought him in and
left him there, nnable to make his way
over the reef after the sea had sunk to
its ordinary level. Youth's Companion.

HOW TO RAKE HAY.
Ahont the llper.tlon.
The merit of anv implement or ma
chine depends upon the wise use of it.
and in making hay time and labor are
often lost bv the unskillful use of the
implements. In raking, for instance.
one mav go over the ground twice in
both raking and loading, by the unwise
method of raking. Io avoid this thn
side-ileliverv rake has lieen devised, but
it is of no use to one who kno.vs how
to use the common dumping sulky rake.
My plan has always lieen to begin atone
side of the field, early in the morning,
when the hay is ready for it, and rake
the hay into winrows. turning at the
other side of the field, and so going
back and forth, continually adding to
tftV length of the winrows. Then,
when the loader comes along in the af
ternoon, there will be a load in each
inrow on anv g.nvl-siyed field, and the
load may be gathered without a turn.
Or. if the hay is loaded by hand, the
wagon isdrawn between two winrows
and loaded from each side. This makes
quick work. It is always wise to have
the hay raked half a day before it is
loaded, and after the first lav the load
ing may begin in the morning: when
there has been no rain at night, the
dew will dry off in the loading and un
loading. A Pennsylvania Farmer, in
A. V. Tribune.
Training the First F.ssentlal.
The breeder who would win stakes.
sell quickly and profitably and make
the blood of his stallions and mares a
marketable quantity must train and
train early. Not so long ago it was
phenomenal for a stallion to have one
in the list at ten years of age or to he
represented by two-year-olds and
three-year-olds. Excuses must now be
made for the stallion whose youngster,
do not find their way into their l.st at
two or three, and the indications are
that before many years the yearling
2:30 list will be quite a factor in judg
ing strains of blood. In the evolution
of the trotting breed the history of the
thoroughbred is merely repeating itseff

If some grocers urge another baking
powder upon you in place of the " Royal,"
it is because of the greater profit upon it
This of itself is evidence of the supe
riority of the " Royal." To give greater
profit the other must be a lower cost
powder, and to cost less it must be made
with cheaper and inferior materials, and
thus, though selling for the same, give
less value to the consumer.
To insure the finest cake, the most
wholesome food, be sure that no substi
tute for Royal Baking Powder is accepted
Nothing can be substituted for
