TWO BITS
AND A NICKEL
"Oh, this Ig Brand!" exclaimed George
-asey, as he paused for a few moments to
(njoy the embracing air and scenery. AH
ibout him the mountains lay in tumbled
leaps, farther away the foothills sloped
[raeefnlly downward, and still farther
lown In the valley and out over the mining
amp he could see the old trail that
itretched away to the westward. He was
lew to these scenes, having recently come
:o Wyoming from his home in Boston, and
le was drinking In the atmosphere of the
lew life to the fullest.
"T-a-s," drawled the girl as sheovertook
ler companion; "but I'm a thinkin' as how
ye better start fer home. It's a-gettin'
rarty late, an' we're some twelve miles
rom town. We can't much more than git
Jiere by dark."
"Two-bita," said George, tauntingly, "I
lelleve you're a coward. Here you were
torn and raised In this country, and you're
cared about being out In the hills after
ark. Now, I'm a tenderfoot, and yet I
pould'nt be afraid to wander all over these
illls from now until morning."
George Casey was Indeed a "tenderfoot,"
lut this was not the worst of his fallings,
laised In a wealthy family, he had been
Iven everything he wished, and had ruled
is father's house to suit himself. That
c was the most important portion of the
amily, he did not for a moment doubt,
nd it wbb his greatest desire that others
hould share that opinion with regard to
ilm. TVhen he found that he was to spend
he Bummer In Wyoming looking after some
lining Interests, be determined that of all
ther things he would show the people
here that here was one tenderfoot that was
ot bo tender after all. The few friends
'horn he had made on first arriving at
told Springs, had soon tired of his lordly
rays and the only one who cared to accom
any him on his various journeys over the
Ills was Two-bits, who followed him
round like a faithful dog.
Nobody could tell where Two-bits got her
ame. She was a rough, uncouth girl of
ourteen years, born In the wilds and true
o her birthplace. The high cheek bones
nd swarthy features told of Indian
100d — a fact of which she was proud.
No two characters could possibly have
een more oppposite than those of George
iasey and Two-bits. She had always been
censtomed to associating with roughly
ressed, brown-featured, bow-legged cow
oys, who treated her like one of tbelr own
lnd, and sometimes enjoyed teasing her
or the amusement of the gang. An admir
tlon had been awakened in her for this
mooth-sbaven, well dressed, polite young
entleman who had come from the land
f which she had heard such wonderful
torles. She had dreamed of such individ
als but had never seen one before. He
ppreciated the fact that she admired him,
nd since no one else In that Immediate
Iclnity teemed to share the feeling, he
ladly allowed her the monopoly of It.
So the two had formed a sort of social
ystern all their own, with just two classes
-master and vassal.
"N-a-w," she drawled, "I ain't no coward,
cither. But I tell you, we can't go back
he way we come, fer it's too long round.
Ye got to go straight back toward the
iprlngs, an' it's a good four hours' wnlk.
lebbe yer don't know thet them there hills
?st above the camp has got fire all under

o warm rer can hardly boar yer hand In
fm. Mebbe yer wouldn't like ter fall down
ne of 'em Inter the fire."
"Ho, ho, ho!" laughed the tenderfoot:
nch a ghost story. Now Miss," he added.
do you ccc that big pile of rocks yonder?
Veil, that's the highest place thorp is
round here, and I'm going to go there."
"Huh!" muttered Two-bits. "Tor kent
either. " A while back yer thought this
rai the highest — her yer are, an'thet's the
Ighest. It'll be the same way when yer
it thar; the highest will be just beyond. I
ell yer. It's time to go home."
"Go home, then, If you want to, and are
fraid. I'm going on. It isn't more than a
ille farther"'
"It's all at five miles!" she declared; bnt
le master started along, and the faithful
lave followed obediently. If he were
;olng, there was nothing for it but that
he must accompany him. They trudged
long In silence for half an nour, and still
he peak seemed as far away as ever.
"Confound it!" said George, at last, "If
re had not stopped so long to talk about It,
re could have been there before this. I
uppose it's too late to go any farther."
Had Two-bits been more eultmvd ana
earned, It is likely she would have said.
'I told yon so." But she only turned as

iloggedly as before, and followed hiiu back
toward the camp.
The sun bad gone down, and soon the
long twilight was drawing to a close.
Now and then the howl of a cyote was
beard far out over the hills, and in another
direction the answering note of its mate.
Ihe echo made the whole region take up
the sound, until it seemed that the two
lone travelers must be in the midst of an
entire pack of the creatures.
"Yer may as well let me take the lead."
Bald Two-bits; and not waiting for his
consent, she pushed her way ahead of him.
He had called her a coward, and she would
show him that she was not one.
He willingly took his place behind the
guide, for he felt safer when he knew that
she had taken the responsibility of leading.
He secretly wished that he had taken her
advice and started home sooner, but he
would not admit it to her.
"Yer'll hef ter hustle faster'n thet," she
remarked, "er it'll be all up with uswnen

t though I could feel the heat right now.
T There! Look yonder!"
T They were now on an eminence command-
i ing a good view of the lower hills, and as
t they looked down Into the darkness they
c could see distinctly long lines of glowing
r red, streaking the earth like the trails of
f fiery serpents. The redness pulsated like
a a thing of life, and as it did so the very
g ground about seemed to heave up and down.
T Then suddenly all was darkness again.
" "Yer see," she continued, "I may be a
c coward, an' all thet. Mebbe so. It may a
b bin all a ghost story, too. But there It is,
a an' we got ter cross thet place.
T The brave young man was getting really
s scared. He had never before been out in
t the mountains in the night time, and the
a awful stillness, broken now and then by
u unpleasant sounds peculiar to the mountain
c country, awed and frightened him. Ills
t teeth were fairly chattering.
— — wish we had started back sooner,"
h he managed to say. "I— l— had no idea
i it was so bad."
" "Yer might a had a purtygood idea," she
a answered; "but it ain't a-goln' to do no
g good ter git scared now. Come along
B By this time they were Hearing the
d dreaded place. Suddenly, as she reached
f forward her foot to take a step, she realized
i instinctively that it was not finding a solid
f footing as soon as It should. A sudden and
u uncommon warmth came upward, and In
a another Instant the faint glow was seen, ''
s showing her a chasm, with the further
b brink some three feet away. Leaplngacross
s she called to her companion, "Mind yer
•re! ' They had changed places— she was
n now the master and he the slave.
" "What is It?" he asked, as he neared the
p lace. Just then he took the fatal step,
a and felt himself falling. But the girl was
q quick. Suddenly reaching out her arm, she
g grasped him by the hand and fairly drag-
g ged him across the chasm. , ,
" "Well, I never!" he exclaimed In fright.
" "That's something awful, don't you know.
I say are there many more like that?"
" "Come on, an' quit yer talkln'," was the
p pre-emptory order.
" "But I say. Iwo-bits, It Isn't safe, Is it»"
h he called after her.
"I" I ain't afeard," she answered; "If yon
a are, why stay where you are, or go back
a an' find the highest peak."
" "Blast the little Imp," he muttered. "I
w wonder if she's going to go away and
l leave me out here all alone. Perhaps It
w would serve me right, for I suppose It's all
■ay own fault. But really, I had no idea
t there was * ny truth in what she said."
H Hello, Two-bits! Don't run away ana
l leave me all alone!" And there came into
h his throat something very like a sob.
L Look out there!" he heard her call; and
llnI In the darkness he saw her some five feet
a ahead of him. "Don't try to walk thar, or

J can't stay here all night."
" "Mebbe yer could Jump across. I did—
b but I m only a coward." She was becoming
s sarcastic, but not without purpose. The
c child was beginning to see that the young
m man would need every incentive she could
o offer to get him to put forth his best ef-
f forts. She had no doubt of her own ability
t to clear all the chasms, but she was quite
s sure that her companion was not accus-
t tomed to such tricks. Now, he stood like
a a scared child on the opposite side of the
d ditch. If the situation had not been so
s serious, it would have been comical
p pa'ulnil'y. *" C ° mln ? " She - asked, lm -
H He stepped back for a run, but when he
c came to the edge again he stopped short
a and looked ruefully at the red glow beneath
m mm. He held out his hand and drew it
b back suddenly, as he felt the Intense heat.
T Then what little courage he possessed for-
s sook him, and he began to whimper.
"I" I Just can't make it. Two-bits. Whatever
s shall I do?'
" W-a-11," drawled the matter-of-fact girl,
"I" I s pose I could go ahead an' git some of
t the fellers from town ter come out an' help
y yer across. They'll make no end of fun of
y yer, though."
" "Blast the fun!" he cried. "Hurry up
a and get me out of this, most anyway.
" "All right. Stay where you are, and I'll
b bc back after a while;" and she bounded
a away like a deer, leaving George Casey
s sitting there In the night alone.
M Minutes dragged like hours, and the dark-
n ness seemed to grow thicker every moment,
e except when it was penetrated by that un- j
c canny glow from down below. Then, as he
drained his eyes to catch Bight of the reß
cuiug party, he thought with bitter anguish
of the juki-s that would be enjoyed at his
ixpense by the fellows In the camp. He
knew that he had tried to lord it over them,
and now they would have a chance to get
even. He could Imagine Two-bits, as she
ran into the "Last Chance," and In great
hilarity told the boys how she had left
"thet felller from Boston" out on the edge
of a chasm on Burning Hills. He could al
most hear their loud laughter as they pre
pared to come in search of him.
In the midst of these thoughts he spied
a light In the distance. It wavered, was
Inst, and appeared again. Yes, it was a
lantern, and it was bearing toward him.
Should he shout and show thorn where he
was? No, that would only add pleasure to
their huge joke. He would remain quiet,
even at the risk of having them miss him.
"If Two-bits only had sense enough to
tell them some yarn about me getting
hurt, or something of that kind," he said.
Then he remembered that she had not been
in the best humor, and decided that she
would probably enjoy the sport as mucj as
any of the others.
"Hello!" called a voice, "Where are yer,
Mr. Casey?" It was the voice of Two-bits,
and it was sweet music In his ear.
"Right this way, Two-blta," he answered.
"Have you brought help?"
She came to the other side of the gulf,
and thrusting a stout plank oat toward him
she drawled:
"Y-a-s. Thet's er help. Did yer think I
was a-goln' ter give yer away ter the gang?
Yer would never a-heard the last of it. I
guess we ken make it all right with this
here." Then, making sure the plank was
resting securely on either side, she ordered,
"Now, git spry, and don't waste no time.
Hop across, 1 tell yer!"
As they came to the last crevice where
the board was necessary, George paused.
"W-a-11," drawled Two-hits, as she
waited, with arms akimbo, "this is the last
one. Yer goln' to give up now? If yer do,
I'll leave yer fer good, dead sure."
"Two-bits," said George, and there was
considerable pathos In his voice; "Two
bits," he repeated, "will you forgive me for
calling you a coward? You are the bravest
girl I ever knew, and you've been real kind
to me to-night. Will you forgive me?' l
"Aw, come along with yer," said the girl,
greatly embarrassed. "It's my pinion
yer fellers In tbe east jlst talk ter hear
yer heads roar half the time, and don't
mean what yer say."
They neared the town, walking aide by
side. The board had been thrown away,
and from their appearance no one would
have known that anything out of the
ordinary had occurred. As he left her at
her own door he pressed her hand tightly,
and said:
"You are a brave girl— a regular little
heroine."
Next day she found a pony tied to the
post In front of her mother's nouse, and on
the beautiful saddle which It bore, was
pinned a note which read:
"This is Nickel, a present to Two-bits,
the brave little girl who was good to a
coward."

at which she will present many Amer

guests.
Naturally, the presentation most Im

Longworths. To add to the attract

boudoir furniture has recently ar
rived from France to lend a fresher
bridal beauty to thei-i.
Exiled Queen Ranavalo.
Among the members of the ruling
families of the orld, most of whom
have known many sorrows, there are
few figures so pathetic as that of
Ranavalo, the ex-Queen of Madagas
car, who is now on a visit to Paris,
and who since 1897 has been a queen
without a tnrone, living in Algiers on
the charity somewhat grudgingly
vouchsafed her by the French Govern
ment.
Ranavalo is now forty-four, and, al
though her complexion inclines to a
dusky shade, she is by no means un
attractive. She possesses a distinctly
good figure, dresses with much taste,
and wears her clothes with distinction.
She ruled over Madagascar for four
teen years, and, like the two queens
who preceded her, became the wife of
the Prime Minister. When she began
her reign the country was at war with
France.
Chinchillas Becoming Scarce.
The chinchilla, the little rat-like ani
mal which produces the popular fur, is
in danger of extinction.
The chinchillas were formerly found
in great numbers in the high ranges of
the Andes, in Bolivia and Chili, tout
owing to the demand for their skins
they have been ruthlessly bunted, in
season and out of season, and the
Chilean Government finds it almost im
possible to enforce a law which has
been passed for their protection.
The exports from Coquimbo, the
principal port for this trade, amounted
last year to twelve thousand dozen
skins, and the prices paid were almost
double those of the previous year.

Stevenson.
The Newest Wearies Apparel.
The Princess gown occupies the
centre of fashion's stage for spring
and summer, and will doubtless "go
to mill &mi to meeting" during the
coming months. It appears in all
sorts of gowns from the exquisite
creations for evening to the walking
skirt and its accompanying bolero,
but there are those who cannot and
will not wear this style of garment,
and for these there are very pretty
skirts, cut circular, and flaring widely
about the lower edge. These skirts
are constructed from all sorts of ma*
terials, even to the thinnest of sum
mer fabrics, and if properly made they
will not necessarily give much trouble
by sagging. However, for the skirt
of washing stuff, the gored models are
much more satisfactory and patterns
for these can be obtained with the
modish flare about the bottom.
The vogue of the circular skirt has
led to the fashion for flat skirt trim
mings. These sometimes take the
form of stitched bands of the material
or silk, while braids of one or several
kinds are often interlaced in design
about the bottom. Another mode of
skirt trimming much used is con
secutive rows of shaped flounces, one
over-lapping the other and often ending
at each side of the front panel. One
might almost say that the front panel
in unbroken length from waistband to
hem prevails in the majority of gowns.
When bands of the same fabric as
the skirt are put on as trimming they
are usually piped with a contrasting
color; the tunic and flounce being often
suggested by the manner in which
these are applied.
As for coats, the bolero Is in high
feather this year, and figures in all
varieties of wear from the ornamental
to the useful. As an ornament it ap
pears in the negligee of the morning
as well as upon tbe evening toilette.
The little lace and embroidered boleros
are to be much worn with soft silk
and summer gowns and will prove
very fetching adjuncts to the toilette.
Every woman and girl will do well
to provide herself with several lin
gerie waists for nice wear. These
little blouses are very important in
the wardrobe, no matter how meagre
or sumptuous it be. They can be had
in a great variety of styles and in all
of the sheer summer fabrics. Those
embroidered, or inset with lace, are
very dainty and considered quite suit
able for any occasion where one needs
to look welL On cool days they can
be worn over a slip of pink, blue or
lavendar and be very pretty i-nd be
coming. Many of these waists are
made with elbow sleeves but they can
be had with the long sleeve — and somi
of the newest imported blouses are
made with sleeves which end in a
long point over the hand.
In materials, no one will go astray
in purchasing voile and linen for her
spring and summer gowns. There aro
linens of all kinds from the sheer
handkerchief qualities to the fine un
bleached linens. Then there are soft
cashmeres, raw silks, mohairs and
eoliennes as well as the immortal
serge. White is promised much vogue
for summer, and mixed with black it
is very smart for the new suits.
These suitings are mostly in small
checks, or stripes.
Was a "Xonymoas" letter.
A certain Congressman from Vir
ginia has long retained in his employ
a colored man by tbe name of Ezekiel.
One morning the master started for
the Capitol, leaving behind him a letter
he had forgotten. Sometime in tbe
afternoon bje remembered the com
mnnication, and, as it was of some im
portance, he hastened back home only
to find that the letter was nowhere to
be seen in his library. He had a dis
tinct recollection that it had been left
on the table. He summoned Ezekiel
and asked if he bad seen it.
"Yassah, yo' lef It on yo' table.'"
"Then where is it now?"
"I mailed it, sah."
"You mailed it! Why, Zeke, I had
not put the name and address on the
envelope!"
"Jes' so, sah! I thought It was one
of dem nonymous communicashuns."
