"Well, bow does it go, Andrew V asked the
elder of the sister, as he reined bi horse in
front of the door.
"Famously, Alu-e," he answered. "I shall

soon, girls, we can say good-by to this ranch
and start for New England. How will that

bright and tender smile toward the younger
of the sisters.
"Oh, I am so glad she exclaimed. "Only

perhaps, in the dear old home. How pleased
futher and mother will be I"
"We shall Hnd cold weather there by this
time," suggested Andrew. "You know it is
winter in New Eugland now."
"I d ml care," replied Helen, with energy.
"A sn.iw Imiik twenty feet high won't terrify
me. It wiii he a sight of beauty.''
"Well, I don't believe we shall any of us be
sorry to see home again. But 1 am off now
for a ride over the plain. After being shut
up in the office all day I want a breath of
fresh air and a hit of exercise. So dues Cap

"You wont be gone long, Andrew P sug
gested tint one who be bad called Alice.
Oh. no! I will t back iu time for supper;
Just a ri.le out two or three nulee and back."
And with another smile and nod for Helen
the young man turned his horse's bead and
cantered away over the plain.
"How w. ll he rides," said Helen.
"Yes. inlerd," replied Alice; "be does
everythiiu well that he nndertakes. How
quickly he straightened out that dreadful
business muddle. I dont know what we ever
should have done without bim. You're a for
tunate girl. Helen."
As Helen wa tf the same opinion she made
no reply, and Uitb sbmd watchuiz the active
young rider ax he sped over the plain.

tbuig was strange and many things uncon- j
g-niial and uncomfortable to the young New
Etiglund women; but they made the best of j
matters in tlieir temporary home and looked
on the bright side of the fortune that was
coining, until one dark day when AJlwrt was
brmight home from the mines, where an acci
dent had hapwned, fatally injured.
There wux no hojie from the first; a few
hours of sharp suffering, a few of uncon
sciousness, and then the young wife was a
wwow and her little one was fatherless.
The weeks that followed were full of trou
ble, grief and anxiety. With the exception
of her sister and her little child. Alice was
surrounded by strangers. Early in the days
of her liereavement she was compelled to
arouse herself to claim her rights In the min

his labor and his money. Unfamiliar with
his businvw nffuirs. she was troubled and be-
lldered by this new care. She had written.

pleasant friendship had sprung up between

attachment. A lice and Helen were U return

Helen were to be married. This was their
story, in brief, up to the warm December af

The pluin over which Andrew was riding
was one of the flat, unattractive stretches of
country eommuu iu New Mexico. The only
herbage was the scant sage brush, and here
and there a growth of thorny cactus. The
direction that he took was a different one
from any which he had tried in his former
rides, off to the east a curious ridge or line
of differing color from the surrounding lev
els broke the monotony of the prairie. It
appeared not more than a mile or two away;
but Andrew knew the illusive distance of
these prairie objects, and in his short rides
had never explored In that direction, though
he had often icsked curiously toward tiie
odd colored line and wondered what it might

light remaining, and his horse was fresh

It was not a lively or inspiriting view; but
Andrea's heart was light with the thought
of his just completed task and his hopeful
plans for the future. His brother's affairs
were in better shu than lie had anticipated.

There was nothing to send back au echo in

thinking it tbe voice of a comrade. Andrew

started; but be was gradually coming nearer
tor, having traveled in a pretty direct line
ove- the prairie. A hillock crowned with a
cad ns thicket, which he bad not seen at first,
appsved beyond it. Klowly the line became
mote clearly defined, and at last iu limits
appsmred quite distinct a distance of nearly
five miles from his starting point. It was a
belt of odd colored sand edging a stream
whiee shallow water flowed slowly over a
sandy bed. Tbe bordering sand, in fact, was
only continuation of the stream's bed, ris
ing with slight slope from tbe water and
witi no marked line of division to separate
It f i m tbe sand of tbe arroyo. In the rays
of 1 3e setting sun the particles of sand seemed
to s lift and change aud glitter with a curious
Tie entire sand bed was but a few rods in
width, but extended for a considerable (lis
ten along the margin of the stream. About
ad-en yards from tbe edge where Andrew
hal ed his horse there was lying a peculiar
yellow stone, which had apparently been
wa bed upon the sand from the arroyo. An
dre was something of an enthusiast in the
coll Ktiou of mineral specimens, and the ap
pea "ance of this stone attracted hia attention.
He urged his horse forward. Captain trotted
on willingly enough uutU he reached the
edgiof the sand bed, but there he started
bac, pulling furiously at tbe rein as he
threw his head upward, and Andrew's urging
cou d not induce him to take step over the
san 1 border.
"Dont like the looks, eh. Captain P said
An. Ire w, patting tbe neck of the rearing
hor "Well, it does look rather soft aud
shifty, to be sure. One of ns will be enough
tofoon, I reckon."
He slipped from the horse's back, led bim
backward a few rods and fastened him to a
sen bby little tree that was making a fight
for life on the prairie. Then he returned to
the sand line. He scooped up a handful of
tbe sand and examined it curiosly.
" end soaps tone," he said, as he threw
the substance away. "Slippery stuff ; but it
loots tolerably dry, probably is not very
dee), and I have no doubt I can get over
wit Kiut any trouble."
B took a few quick steps across the edge
of tie sand bed, and then walking became
moie difficult. He could hardly lift his
boo ed feet from tbe clinging sand. But the
cur ous stone was almost within his reach,
nod he made a few more steps forward. The
last step caused him to sink so deeply as to
aim Kt lose his balance. He straightened
himself with an effort. The sand was like
bes -y weights on his feet, and something
seel ied dragging him downward. He reached
f onrard and succeeded in grasping the yellow
store and lifting it from iu sandy bed.
Wit bout stopping to examine it then he tried
to t irn and retrace his steo. Then he found
witii a shock of surprise that he was caught
fast by the feet and ould not release tbera
froi i tbe sand.
Be made frantic effort to free himself;
ano .her, and another, and each time found
thai be sank deeper and deeper. The sand
was already to his boot tops. Then the fear
ful 'act was realized for tbe first time; he
was sinking, sinking fast in a quicksand bed,
and there was no human being within sound
of his voice!
T m quicksand was, as before stated, a part
of ihe arroyo. During this unusually dry
sea3n the water had receded from the sur
fed for some distance, but it still filtered
ondarneath; and the damp sand particles!
slid ng and shifting upon each other, gave no
foundation Uon which a solid body could
rest Every moment Andrew was settling
deep in tbe sand. Soon it was above his

was facing him here on the lonely prairie.
T m sun had already gone down, and soon
nigl.t would settle over the lonely waste. An-
dre'v stretched his arms in mute despair to-
war i toe sty toe rar on, beautiful sky that
iu another hour would be shut forever from
bis sight. The thought of his bright life
plai a, tbe sweet girl waiting for hun, the
hon e that would never be bis, added to his
ago ly. The bauble for which be had periled
his life dropped from his fingers, a long,
pite his cry for help burst from his bps, and
ne znea again and again; but from the
prairie solitude there was no answer.
V ith the strength of a dozen men, it seemed
to him, he made his last desperate effort to
figh: down and overmaster the sliding sand.
tie strained nerve and muscle, he fought as a
mat fighu where life is at stake. He gained
a little, then quickly lost tbe advantage. It
was useless, worse than useless, against that
deailly undertow. Still struggling with the
terrible odds which tbe quicksand offered,

It n.iht have been fancy when be thought
tbete was an answer to his sung; but
the ringing call of the Swiss mountaineer, it
was said, would reach farther and echo longer
than any othxr cry in the mountains. In hia
coll. ge days Andrew had been proud of tbe
stro agent and sweetest tenor voice of tbe col
Inge glee club. All iu strength and resonance
wars needed now!
D-awing a deep breath, Andrew threw tbe
whole power of his voice into such a call as

Tvice. thrice, four times he gave the cry,

out clear, there came answering back over
tbe ilain tbe refrain :
A ;ain aud again Andrew gars the yodel,
axid again the answer oame back. And then,
against tbe background of the sky, appeared
the outline of a galloping pony and his rider

engineer as a certain remedy against lliein

placed in tiie midst of a great basin, paved
and ornamented with marbles of various
rolors. It is so arranged that this basin can
be tilled with the coldest of water to such a
depth as to entirely cover the building, all
except the dome, which is 41 feet high aud
made of iron and covered with hammered
When the potentate and his royal family
enter tbe pavilion the door is closed tightly
against cement covered strips; the sluices
are opened and the great basin is filled, so
that the building is entirely covered with
