DICK WAGGIXS WIVES.
"Yea," reiatl Job Watkina'sha arrived
here by last night's stare; an' tb. question is.
What's tuts yer camp goin' ter do .boat itr
A dead aileni-e followed this query, tb.
group of miners gathered around Randy's
bar not U'ing arrttvtnmed to decide on point
"Wal," venturvd Bob Tlnnett, after an in
terval during which ever? man's empty glass
was replenished, "what I'v. got to say is this.
that as tilings are so romfortabl. up at
Dick W afc-gins', let thom be, and aa It's clearly
ag'in female human natur' for two wivea to
git along sniilin' in the same house, tot this
woman go lck; and In order to mak. it
squar'. let us, mun and tuan, chip in and
make It wulli tier while to go, without aayin
nothin' to Iu-k."
A dozen hands went to as many pockets in
practi.-al reion.B to this appeal, but were
arrextcU there, as Jo. Watkiua, who appeared
in the light of public prosecutor, again step
ped forward. "That's not the pint 1 say
that WagRins oiler be punished; he's plaved
it mean i n tins camp, and if I know th.
bora, they'll play it back on him to a pretty
tun. Why, when Spiggot died over ter
South Fork mountain, an' Waggins went and
brought his widder over ez his wife, didnt
this yer camp srswk well, didn't it speak most
uncommon well, of t agslnsP
"It did," responded the crowd with tb
unanimity of an opera chorus.
"Thar war others ex might have thought

The orator knew his audwnc too well to
make the Infringement of tb. marriage law
the chief point f bis indictment, and tnar
fore dwelt on the deception used by Waggins
toward oioty at Babbit iFuid. Dick should
bare lai 1 the matter before tbem, abould hav.
confided in them as men not unfamiliar with
domestic infelicity, and in that case they
would have been quite willing to lgsora the
brat wife ami support hun in his impending
trouble. Dick bad not chosen to act accord
ing to precedent, con.eqiienUy th camp fait
outraged and " -posed to listen to Watkina.
"I sar," pursued th. modern Arittdas,
"that justii-e bet got ter be dona."
"Bui they cuu't both hut-e bir- I umarked
a thoughtful bystander. "What becomes of

lu which you can t dirlde th. .takes."
"That ain't the p int, it's the prinoarpla.
Babbit's Find ain't got any thin' too much
and ter spare in the way of morality ; it alnt
a bu'stin' out and overflow in.' with rlrtu. to
that extent that it can afford to let a thing
like this go by . "
An aflirnuttive murmur ran round th.
crowd w bich was quit, ready to atcme for
Individual shortcomings by hearty indorse
ment of abstract principle, "It's been
rather dry season in morals round here right
along, and I take it the camp'i not goln' to
pass this time; it will tak. a hand in tb.
game, and Waggins he got ter git"
Jack U-froy thought that Babbit's could
withstand worse shocks than this, and moved
that the matter be left lo th. hands of Dick
and his two wives.
"I'm with you there, pard," said Ben
Thompson, "and I reckon there isnt a man
here as would wish to go yon one better on
that You net this ia Dick's own private
game, and if it cornea to morality welL all
I've got to say Is that the man as says he's
got a straight flush of that suit had better
show bis band."
This lilieral view of the situation provoked
hearty applause, but as Joe Watkins repre
sented tue religious element of the place, so
far a it could be said to exist at all, hla argu
ments finally carried the day. it was event
ually decided that the boys should meet the
stage by which Waggins would arrive the
following night, and escort him to th meet
ing bouse, where, in the presence of his two
wives, he should bear his sentence of banish
ment from Babbit's Find.
Watkins. after leaving the saloon, turned
off in the direction of Waggins' home, which
differed from the surrounding shanties by
reason of its cleanliness within and it little

Taggins, confronting her unwelcome vis

her effort to seem unmoved her vote shook
and her lips grew white,
"Oh, you're beginning to look kert Ilka.

"'o, you wont stay there. Tell me what

"I gu- when Dick comes he'll find tb. air
of this camp onealubnous. You sea, his fust
wife's conic, and folks are kind of speakla' of
you by yer old nam. of Splggot"
The woman staggered aa if she bad re
ceived a blow, and yet it seemed as If th
news came to her as tb fulfillment of an old
dread, rather tuan as a revelation of bar hus
band a perfidy.
"Yes, Martar Delaucy was her nan

bad been followed by a sultry night, and th.
momeutory breeze which had brought littl.
freshness died away aa suddenly as it had
come. The place was not beautiful ; even tb
softening grace of night waa powerleaa to rob

had a fascination no words could a nines. It

The meeting nous at babbit's Find owed
Its axis nce to on of those sudden burst of
motto ia! religious feeling to which men who
lead hard lives are frequently prone. When
Mrs. W aggin reached the meeting bouse her
husban 1 was already there, and without a
word sitt went and stood by his side. The two
clasped hands and looked silently into each
other's face, neither having words to express
th feelings that possessed them. Jo Wat
kins wis In possession of the pulpit, and near
him set tb heroin, of the hour, smiling
pleasantly on the company. Th crowd was
unusualy well dressed. So many boiled
abut, i t was remarked afterwards, bad never
been eo before In th camp. It was th
dry set son, which accounted for the large
attend no; th majority, however, pre
ferred hanging around and discussing th
matter out of doors to listening to Joe's elo
"Tbii .gs hev bin gettin' lax fer some time,"
said Watkins, "and the camp's decided to

The oi star paused for a reply; but before
it could be given Dick, turning his back ou
Joe, adc r eased his Judges:
"Five years ago," be said, "I married that

A thunder of applause brok out on thia

entered -Jie building.

at that moment was vigorously applauding

grimly. "What I have just learned makes

trout, flftn Inches in length, in a huge

"Speaking of dogs," said a yarn spinning
boat club man, chuckling softly to himself
over some mirth provoking memory, "there
was a queer thing happened on day last

tb boat club bas a pretty hot temper, al
though he's a mighty good hearted boy.

on young Blank and it made him pretty hot
"He swore he'd kill that blasted pup, and
he chased htm ail over tb pier with that in
tention, but tbe pup was too lively for him
and led him a regular chase. Finally the boy
got the dog cornered out at tbe pier bead, and
the pup, as a last resort, jumped overboard.
Over goes Blank after him and swims him
down, for the dog waa no swimmer. Well,
he just pounded the face off that pup and
soused him under so much that two or three
women standing round said he waa a perfect

again. There was an awful sea on; I never
saw a worse. The water was breaking clear
over the pier and sending the suds clear over
the clubhouse roof. Blauk bad to mak a

club house. Th dog saw bun coming, and
thinking, I suppose, that be was going to
soak it to hlra again, be made a sneak down
tbe pier and plumped off tbe end, right In
among those broken rocks and jagged pilea.
It was sure death for tbe dog, with such a

rate swimmer, but he knew a man with
