to Col. Sanchez." v

As tho evening wore on tho fever re
turned and the White Colonel wandered
in his mind. It was nearly eleven
(Askx-k when rt woman, robed as a sister
of c&arity, entered the room and after
listening to the surgeon's orders sat down
by the bed. The patient seemed to
fileep and sho began to tell her beads.
He stirred uneasily and as he opened his
eyes she bent over him to give him the
"Elodia, my love," he said slowly,
"am I dead and in heaven then!"
The sister started back, pressed her
hand tightly against her heart as she
became deadly pale, and then Colonel
Sanchez entered the room.
"How is he?" he asked.
"Pepe," she whispered, trembling like
a leaf as she clung to her brother, "do
you know who he is?"
"Elodia, my own, I will return famous
to thee!" murmured the unconscious
"Xo," said Col. Sanchez in a startled
tone. "Who is he?"
"Rafael, Rafael, I tell thee Rafael
come back after all these years to die!"
"Rafael! Impossible!" said Pepe, lean
"Who calls Rafael?" asked the sick
man. "I tell thee, Pepe, 'tis on the Rue
Jean Jacques on the left, I tell thee,
oh, most obstinate of men'.-'
"There! dost hear that?" whispered
the sister wildly.
Col. Sanchez bent over and gazed at
the man's face, great drops of perspira
tion standing out on his forehead, and
as he looked the eyes were opened.
"Pepe with spectacles; how Don Ra
fael will laugh," ho said. "Didst get
them from the concierge, Pepe they are
of his pattern?"
"ily God!" exclaimed Col. Sanchez,
drawing back and passing his hand
across his forehead. The sister sank on
her knees beside the bed and kissed tho
hand lying there, weeping passionately.
"My sister," began the patient feebly;
"where has Elodia gone? If my love
were here sua would dry thy tears.
There can be nothing but happiness
where she is.
CoL Sanchez leaned over the bed.
'Dost know me, Rafaelito?" lip Jlsked.
"Certainly I know thee; wlrv should I
not know thee? But thou art older and
different, somehow. Arf for the mas

"That is the White Colonel!"
"I knew it!" she almost screamed. "1

never doubted thee, Rafael of my heart;
I knew it was not true;" and once more
she convulsively pressed her lips to Lis

"Knew he was not what they said,'
she answered, rising to her feet. "The

the sufferer she prayed.
All that night Pepe and Elodia or
the sister Dolores watched. At times
Rafael's talk ran on the old days, but
the memory of them seemed strangely
mingled with other scenes of which his
hearers knew nothing, and toward morn
ing, when the fever left him, he sank
into a quiet sleep. It was Elodia who
thought that perhaps if he saw them
when he became conscious it might
startle him, and so Pepe left while she
took her place outside the door. When
he woke he was perfectly conscious, and
after the surgeon's visit he asked that
Col. Sanchez be sent for. When Pepe
entered the room, trembling as he had
rarely trembled before, Rafael looked up
with a glad smile.
"It will not be very long," he said.tak
ing his visitor's hand in his, "before the
end comes. And now, .Pepe, dost thou

Peie's lips as the tears dropped from his
eyes. "Oh, Rafael, and thou art to
"If I had my choice, Pepe, it would
have been as it is. In arms for my own
land and under thy command. God has
been very good. A captain, too, Pepe;
forget not that."
The two sat there gazing into each
other's eyes, and the dying man was the
quieter. After a short pause he spoke
"Thy father, Pepe; he is dead."
"He sent his love to thee, Rafael."
"1 knew he would; X loved him so,
And my mother and thy mother I shall
see them, Pepe, and they all know the
truth of my repentance now. And thou
hast kept the flint and steel all these
vears, good eld Pepe. Hiked to look at
it on the boat, but thou didst not know.
And and, Elodia?"
"Elodia is here, Rafael."
"Then why do they keep her from me?
She would be here if she could."
"She was afraid it might make thee
ill. But I will call her."
In a moment Elodia was in the room
and on her knees by the bed, with her
head resting on his unwounded shoulder,
his arm around her neck.
"My own love!" he whispered, while
her lips moved, but what they said none
but God and Rafael Knew.

said a newspaper m;in, "lie regarded his
possession of au immense fortune no'Juina
less than a miracle. I was forty-nine vears
old," lie said, "when the row made over
the discovery of the Com.stnck silver mines
set the whole coast wild. I had been dis
appointed in the work I had Ieen at, and
found myself i-rwty nearly broke. I had
enough to buy a horse and the outfit, and
started over the mountains from Califor
nia with the boys. That broke me, and I
wasn't feeling happy, because I'd worked
and struggled and speculated a good many
years, anil it struck mo as racier rough
that a man of my age should have to start
out, as I did then, like a young fellow.
There were about ten or twelve of us in
tho party, and as I was blue they let me
alone rather, and my mustang being worn
down 1 stopped on tho trail, put my arm
through the bridle and picked out a rock
to sit on.
"The rest of the boys rode on. but I sat
there. There wasn't any reasou why I
should particularly, only I did. The whip
I had was a willow switch I'd pulled
from a tree as I rodo along. As I sat
there I switched the dust of the trail and
thought, shall I go with them or shall I go
go back? I switched and switched, and
thought and thought. I saw behind me
all the hard work I'd done, all the chances

back and make my fight where I was
known. There was safety in that ai: v v.:iv.
"Hut I'd been camping night after night
with the boys ahead of me, and it made nie
lonesome to thinkof parting company with
them. So after switching and switching
the dust on the trail, and feeling weak and
human because I yielded, I mounted my
horse again and road on after the party. I
got to the Comstock, and in six months I
made half a million dollars. That is the
foundation of what I've done since. Now,
why shouldn't I have turned back when I
hesitated? It would have been sensible,
'conservative' to do that. But I didn't.

inclined to think there's no such thing as
luck gust think of me." bt. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A story of the Greely expedition was told
at a dinner one evening lately by a naval
officer to whom the occurrence was a per
sonal reminiscence. He accompanied the
Bear in its mission of rescue, and hap
pened to be one of the party that actually
found the small band. It is history that
the moment was a desperate one for the
Greely men. The last drop of liquor had
beeh poured down the throat of one of
tham, who seemed to be dying, and about
fit t he end of hope and resources, and weak
with hunger and suffering, the little com
pany was settling into the stupefaction of
overwhelming misery, when the rescuers
Once more they were m the world. At
such a time a man is apt to conceal his
emotions, and tho tragic meeting was ac
complished with a simplicity that in itself
was tragic. A cheerful Halloo, old man,
from the rescuers, and a grunt or two from
such of the survivors as were able to grunt
even, and it was over.
Then followed the attempt to get the
poor fellows in condition to be moved to
the ship. Nourishing food and drink wen-
given to them and they were cheered by
talk of home and friends and The latest
news. But the process was slow at first.
Chief engiueer John Ijow seated himself
by Lieutenant Greely, who, gaunt with
starvation and wild eyed with late despair,
seemed to take little heed of him.
"Well, colonel," he said finally, afte'
several apparently ineffectual efforts to
arouse the still dazed officer, "there's one
little woman will be glad of this day's

again half sullenly. "Little woman," he
repeated with a sort of a growl, "she weighs

Discharged and Resigned.
The other day I heard one gentleman
say to another, I hear you have resigned
your position as cashier of the Blank
bank." "Oh, no," was the surprised and
immediate reply, and the youun fellow

of resigning as good a position as that."

Whv. bless me! I haven't heard the word

Another peculiar order of things I have
observed. Nobody in these happy days
ever gropes about trying to beg, borrow or
steal a situation. The situation, on the
contrary, runs about seeking the man.
and forces itself upon him, and anally,
growing ashamed of his hard heartedness,
he "accents" it, and everything is tranquil.

word "discharged." It is frequently a more
honest word than "resinned." Because one
