Ho brought hor n thick gray shawl,
tvlifcli ho draped over hcrnhoulders. It
qultii covered her, and sho looked
very smnll and odd.
"You look like a child In Its big sis

leaving hor. Ho wan not mado of Iron,

"Some woman gnvo mo thalntrocity;
it will do well for tho shawl."
"I am glad to take it away because a
woman gave It to you. I bate to think
of anybody elso liking you. Is Dr.
John a young man?"
Oliver thought she was either nn ex
perienced lllrt or tho most iniiocent of
young persons, but hor liking was so
honest and apparent ho folt the better

"The greaser llvln' foronlnst tho
wnthsr tank have a good harse, sor,"
wild Mike, as hu cautiously roleased
tho horses' heads and thoy started
down tho road at a gallop.
Tho night was warm and pleasant;
tho chluook blew from fnrBiin-warmod,
plains, nnd myriads of stars pierced
tho darkness. Tho road was fairly
good, though seldom traveled, and lay
mostly on nn incline towards the
plains. It took all Oliver's strength to
bold tho horses, shut in for a day or
two and headed for Denver, whore
they keenly remembered tho comforts
of oats and n city stable. Mrs. de ller
tnud, as tho backboard swung around
often touched him; sho caught ids arm
onco with a little cry as they plunged
into ,i hollow; but ho talked distantly
of hor journey, restraining any tilTee
tlouate conlldonees on her part with
reference to tho absent Aunt Hannah.
Sho would go to Colorado Springs;
tho train passed through there; sho
had a friend a poor woman well,
their washerwoman when sho and
mamma lived there that winter; and
this washerwoman was really a nice
lady, who could buy her some proper
"Hut tho money!" sho cried, in dis
may. "Hnvo you got any with you?"
Thoy were going up a hill, tho horses
panting heavily. Oliver took a roll of
bills and put them In her hand. As his
Angers mot hers, every nervo in his
"This seems a great deal," sho said,
Hmldly. "Perhaps Aunt Hannah would
not llko to pay so much."
"You need not spend It all, Mrs.
Mlnuy, then; and, besides, tho bills
are Binnll; that's what makes them
Mem so many. Now pleaso put them
carefully in your pookot, and don't let
tho dog chow them."
Sho laughed merrily. "Of course
not, you gooso! Oh, this rldo Is lovely!
I never saw horses go so fast. Kven If
ho should follow us you would not lot
hitn tako mo." Sho clung to his arm
but he freed himself, gently.
"I hnvo to drive, you know," ho said,
coldly. He meant to dii or say nothing
that tho whole world should not know,
but It was very hard to bo distant, sho
seemed such n child. He folt bho cow
ered away from him at his words, hurt
nnd frightened, but he forced himself
to be slloiiL At Inst bho said, timidly:
"I know you hnto ino, and 1 soem to
realize all at once you nro almost n

than one should uvon require of tin old,

times, honestly, Mr. Oliver, I used to
U-nso him so ho would and I might
have my chance."
Oliver whistled softly under his
breath; ho would not have liked Dr.
John to hear that Inst speech. "You
must not toll her," ho bald, quickly,
"about this ride nnd coming to my
"Why not? I would llko her to know
how good you were."
There wns no need, but ho stashed
his horses angrily; then ho snld, curtly;
"I am sorry you cnuuot understand.
Could yon explain It satisfactorily to
Mr. do llestaudV"
"How cro,syoti are! and I know you
look just as you did when I talked
mean about hint a sort of disgusted
Impntlence. Hut ho Is not a reasona
ble being. Other people may be."
"Would you have gone to those nml
able friends of his for nssislunce to got
to tho tnllroinl?"
"Of course not. You know that."
"Well, how is tho world to know I
am any better?"
"I suppose being n lawyer umbos you
so smart," sho wild, in a melancholy
tone; she assured her dog In a whisper
he wan the only being who loved hor,
her only friend; that she was silly and
frivolous, Aunt llnunuh said, and
seemed to bo a great trouble to mere
Rtrangers of good dlppuslllons. Oliver
said never u word; a little wnile curved
his lips, but lie did not turn his head
Soon she grew quiet, and her head
dropped against his shoulder, the soft
wind lifting her curls to blow across
his cheek Tho dog, ornamented with
tho doctor's cap, slept In her lap.
Across the level bind bcfoic them
crept tho gray glimmer of tho dawn.
Hose-colored light flamed In tho far
east, relleetlng on the new snow on
distant mnuntnin-pcuks. Prairie dogs
hopped out of their holes and sat on
their hind legs discussing local polities
and happenings, tho bill to abolibh
free rents for rattlesnakes, and tho ex
tortions of horned owls. Tho Kkyo
terrier disgustedly flung off the doe
tor's enp and barked angrily at tho
small dogs. Mrs. do Ib'statid lifted her
h d with a llttlo start, blushed and
slapped tho Skyo terrier.
"Do bo quiet, Skyo. I am afraid 1
tired yon, Mr. Oliver."
Ho would havo liked 1 i say a sweet
thing to her to most women lie would
but his rolo now was that of benev
olent friend; so ho only nnswored
vaguely: "Not at all," as if ho did not
know to what sho referred. Tho horses
dragged themselves wearily forward;
it was six o'clock, and they had come
fifty miles over a dllllcult road in less
than seven hours. Two parallel linos
of iron stretched far In tho dtstaiico;
tho clumsy outline of a water-tank
loomed up just ahead. Tho goal was
reached, and away In tho north a rib
bon of smoke outlined on tho sky pro
claimed tho coining train. Oliver lifted
Mrs. do Uestaud down. Skyo rushed
madly to tho hole of a venturesome
prairie dog who had taken up a resi-.
denco nenrtho tauk nnd was out en
joying tlietmorning air. Tho terrier
found only n vanishing, and vented his
nnnoyanco at this and nil tho other
vagrant dogs In shrill barks. His mis
tress was vastly amused; the strungc
ness of her undertaking had quite
gonu out of her head.
Oliver, in some concern, gave tier ad
vice regarding her journey; ho wns un
certain of his horses about tho train
and had to stand by their bonds; so
Mrs. Mlnny frisked about with her
dog, entirely confident her difficulties
"You must send mo word to Denver
when you get to Mulno," ho said, "and
bo sure and make no acquaintances on
"Ono would think I wus just out of
"Tho primary department," ho said,
crossly. "I wish you would bo reason
able and listen a moment. I shall
tell tho conductor you nro ono of
a camping-party and your mother
Is ill at Colorado Springs that
you had to leave in snub a hurry to
catch the train .ou had no time to got
ivady. If 1 must toll wrong stories for
you, Mrs. Mlnny, please don't mnko
mo out in a lie tho first thing."
"How good you are!" she said, softly.
"I shall never, never forgot what you
hnvo dono for mo. I shall say to my
self: 'Mlnny,' you may bo frivolous
Aunt Hannah says as unstable as water
but one big, handsome man is your
friend and always will be.' "
"Always, Mrs. Mlnny, to tho end of
Tho rush of tho near train terrified
his horses almost beyond control, and
ho was obliged to send her for tho con
ductor when tho train stopped for
water. Tho obliging ofllolnl showed
no surpriso at Oliver's ingenious story;
ho was used to camping parties. Ho
"ooon-nv," said omvi:ii, holdi.no out
Imparted the welcome news that the
stuteroom was vacant sho could havo
that and neeepted two line cigars.
"My daughter Is unused to traveling
alone," Oliver said, gravely; "so will
you telegraph for a carriage to meet
her at tho Springs, and see that sho
gets out nt the right place?"
Tho conductor would bo very happy
to oblige. Then tho young lady asked
meekly If a dog, n vory little one,
might. also ride in tho stateroom.
"Ho might," said tho ofllclal, "If
hidden under n bhnwl; for, If this pre
caution is not taken, on the next trip
all tho women lu tho train will be
bringing along tholr dogs. And 1 guess
it'a time to get aboard."
Good-by," said Oliver, holding out
Mrs. Mlnny picked up 1-er dog; with
It under ono arm, sho took Olivir'e
hand, reached up, and shamelessly
kissed him, a ghost of a kiss touching
"(Jood-by, papa," bho 'called, running
to tho car, und from tho otep waved
farewell until the train vanished in
Oliver, m ho drove along the road by
tho track In search of the Mexican who
had the good horse, wan almost dazed,
lie could not forget that farewell. Ho
was haunted by the presence of tho
little lndy of the Troublesome. IIo had
not retunu-d tho kiss well, there was
no tlmo but howthu-'ghtloBs, In front
of tho train! and wit there ever an
other womnn like her? Ho had nover
seen one. Trying nu sho wns nil that
long wny, could any man have plaved
the rolo of honost friend better? "Not
even Dr. John," said Oliver.
M. Do Uestaud looked up from his
cards as the chill gray of dawn stole in
"Heavens!" he muttered, "what n
night Pro bad!"
He pushed tho chips aw ny, for ho hail
been n heavy loser, und staggered to

out the window, drinking in tho fredt
chill air an Icy water. The room be
hind him wns foul with eig.ir-smoko
and the smell of dregs of liquor in
"Oo to bed," ho Raid, wcariedly;
"you know your rooms. I've played

One man muttjrrea about giving him a
chance, but De ijtostnud shook his head
impatiently, anil they all wentnwuv.
"I was ugly to tho little girl last
night," Do Kcs'taud said, half aloudi
"What did I do? odd 1 can't remem
ber. I wish she would lieop uway
from mo when I'm not myself. She
lias no more sonse about some things
than a child. I'll go see her."
He tried herdoor; no sound, not even
the angry baric of her inseparable com
panion. "1 wonder if I killed tho dog when I
kicked it. Wisli I bad; but she'd nover
forgive me. She riding down the road
to see that follow thinks of him all

Americans ho has a fist like a black

ridor to Ills own room, and Hung him
self, still dressed, on bis bed. The bouse
was silent for hours. Annette in tho
L, went softly nbout her work, monsieur
was so dreadful if awakened. Louis
currying the horses in tho corral
scarce spoke abovo n whisper, but tac
iturnity had become n habit with him.
Tho poultry, however, clucked merrily
in the back yaid; the gobbler gave bis
views, nnd tho hens, women-like, cack
led about It, while tho ducks enjoyed
tho bonanza of deep mud and pools
lifter tho rain. The cows, loath to go
upon tho hills, huddled near the barns.
Annette, round-faced, beady-eyed, neat
as a pin, stood in the door, her hands
on her hips. She looked with pride on
her fowls how well tho plumpdnrlings
repaid her care then she glanced
across at her husband, ten years her
junior the beautiful man who had
spent her dowry and told her so charm
ingly ho mnrried her for that money,
and who had brought her to this wild
country. She bimlod to herself in sat
isfaction; in this wilderness no girl
could tnko him away. Those Paris
girls were such wretches, brazen
things. Tho ranchers' daughters here,
however, were well behaved; no matter
what eyes Louis made, they would
have none of him. Tho young girls of
tho mountains wore brave and good.
How thoy must suiter, though! for
Louis was so fascinating.
"Louis," sho called, t-oftly, stepping
out on tho plank walk, "madamo is
not yet nwake, nor tho little dog. It
is a strange silenco for them who nro
usually out so early. You climb up on
tho oof of tho corral and look In her
window. She never would open her
door to us."
Tho man hurriedly obeyed. He had
been thinking all tho morning some
thing was wrong, if she were dead
monsieur was wilder than common last
night, and so hasty; ho had beon
gambling and losing nil dav. The dog
must bo dead; ho hated Louis, and
generally made his appearance at tho
window early to bark at him. Louis
climbed up ono of tho posts of tho roof,
crossed und looked in tho open window.
Aunotto watched him, shading hor eyes
with her hand.
"She is there, Louis?"
Ho shock his head and dropped to
tho ground at her foot. "No; sho is
gona. Tho bed hasn't been blept In."
"Hcaveus!" cried Annette, wringing
her bands. "Monsieur will bo ter
rible." "Ho ought to kill her, tho little cat.
You need not pity her; sho makes
game of you always because you can
not comprehend her English tongue.
I must wako monsieur."
Followed by Annette, who prayed In
n whisper, ho knocked at monsieur's
door. No answer. Then ho went In
and shook tho sleeper gently.

Do Uestaud sat up dazed and haggard
eyed, "I hate to toll you, but 1 must;

"Liar!" cried tho other, leaping to
his feet, "Sho would not dnro. Get
