Lohigh is a little town a few milos
south of Salt Lako City. I roachotl it

for it, as I must havo sholtcr for thu

knocked boldly nt thu door. It wns
oponed by tho Bishop's wife, n tall,
thin, caroworn womun, who eyed mo
"Can 1 stny hero nil night?" 1 asked;

I told hoi* my lanae, and added that
I had lived part of my lifo in Louisiana,

"I nm not a Jow. that's certain," I
said laughingly, "So 1 supposo I must

"Tho J'ishop don't low Gentiles iii
this town. They DOVOr sot foot hero,
lint you can como in if you '.?ant to."
1 was surprised at'tho end o? her sen
tence, which bore no ryt-?.-mb!.;nco to
tho beginning, and gladly accepted tho
rather equivocal invitation.
Tho room which I ontcrcd was small
and poor, uso?! for parlor, dining-room
and general sitting-room. In the apart?
mont boyond 1 heard the click of a sew
ing-mneliino and tho sound of girl's
"What d'yo como to Lehigh^or?"
Mrs. Evans inquired, still eyeing mo
with inimonso curiosity.
"I came hero to opou n school," I
"A school! What sort of n school?"
"A school for nil tho boys and girls

She ignored tho Inst quostiOD uud
faced mo with her mills akimbo.
"What bo you going to charge?"
"Nothing! That's a queer way to
keep a school. Guess you'll get tired
of it soon enough."
A long pauso followod, during which
sho seemed to bo studying mo and
Srowing moro mid moro perplexed,
t Inst sho shot at mo this oucstion:
"Bo you n l'rcsbytorinn?
"A Mot body?"
Sho turnod around abruptly and
Hung opon tho door of tho noxt room,
where I had heard tho sowing machine.

1 noticed a small orean in ike bnok
room, standing opposite to the sowing
"Do you play?" I asked.
They ail shook thoir hoadi rather
sadly. I loamed that tho organ was
to thom a great and awful mystery. It
had never bcou opened since it wns
brought into tho houso sumo m m le bo
fore, taken by tho Bishop in pu t pay
ment of a debt There was ti man at
the railroad station, they told mo, who
could play an organ. Evideitly thoy
fait the greatest admiration for tho
man at the station.
In paoking my trunk that norning, I
had accidentally left out a
ing book, and af, the tait min ito tucked
lt into my satohol. 1 wai thankful
that 1 hsd lt within reach. Isnt down

I laughed as I told thom I know a
"Ncvor counted 'oinP"
"No; 1 novor collided thom."
Tho man at tho station, ihoy in
formed mo, only know six. lt was
plain that my musical reputation was
already far ahead of that acquired by
tho man at tho station.
When 1 went to bed that night tho
Bishop had not returned. As 1 ap
proached tho dining-room tho next
morning I hoard a gruff bass voico
growling? with a jerk on uno!) word,
"Put her out! put her out!" 1 naturally
supposed some sort of wild animal had
entered tho house, and hesitated an in
stant before opening tho ?loor. "A
(?entilo woman-all night-in this
houso! A ('entile woman! Y'ou put her
out! But her out!"
I opened tho door then and walked
into tbe little room. Tho Bishop stood
in tho middle of it, in a perfect, tory.
"Good morning, sir, 1 1 said, as
pleasantly ns I could.
"You're a (?entilo woman!" ho
growled' in response to my .salutation.
"I laid out this town of Lehigh just
thirty-four years ago, and you're tho
first (?entilo woman who ever got into
"Well", I said, as 1 took a chair and
sealed myself comfortably, "that is
(piite an interesting cll'CUmslauco, I'm
sure I'm proud of tho honor of being
tho first. 1 appreciate it."
"You'vc got to go," ho growled, in
tho samo jerky tone in which ho hail
said "Put her out! Put her out!"
"Oli, no," I said; "I've conic to
stay. It is till tho moro necessary for
ino to .stay if I am tho only one, but 1
assure you, Bishop Evans, there aro
plumy more who will como after me."
Ile looked as if ho wero going to
Htrike nie. I liaVO no doubt but that
he would have done so if he had darell.
But ono's lifo is safe onotigh in Utah.
Th?- killing days have gone by, anil the
Mc mons know it. They are afraid of
out (iovornmont interfering when they
shed blood. Thc Bishop simply glared
willi a ferocious look and clinched
hand:, then strode out of tho house,
giving tho door a tcnilic bang behind
him. Mrs. Evans was nearly frightened
out ot her wits.
"There's a train from Lehigh at ll
o'clock," she began, when I interrup
ted her. "I didn t cunio lo Lehigh at ?
o'clock Friday afternoon," I said, "to
leave it on ?Saturday morning. 1 have
come to stay, my dear madam, as I
told your husband."
That day I attempted to lind aboard
iug-plaCO, tho attempt consisting in
walking from house to house, knocking
ut tho door and asking for a room ol
some sort, not being particular as tc
B?/.0, location or furnishing. The door;
were invariably slammed in my face,
though in many cases tho slamuiinj;
process was preceded by the question,
which after a while became ludieron.'

"How do you lind yourself, my dear

But Mr. Chlttondon is not the mau

His face and lins were colorless, and

His collar broke loose, his hat fell oil',
and tho light seemed to have faded out

that a crowd was gathering; and tho
