never out of his own mind, lie
was u physical coward. A shot tired
set bin heart beating wildly, and he
turned sick at strife and carnage. 1IH
pulse bouts averaged 1)5 per minute
and bis heart turned cold every time a
Summons for arrest was placed In Ids
bauds. Ho experienced a sensation of
uervous dread ?ach time he swung
bimsoir upon the bneU of his high spir
ited horse. Every sudden Bound con
veying presage of danger thrilled him
with fright. Ills disposition was high
Strung, sensitive and unalterably timid.
And yet "Rr.d" Conrad was known as
the coolest and most courageous sheriff
In this territory. He had attained this
reputation by a dally and hourly strug
gle with bis whole moral force against
his natural weakness. Ills fear of ?hin
ger, groat as it was, bad been subordi
nated to a greater fear lest bis falling
tie known. How to hide his cowardice
from the world was his one aim. With
a cold fear In Ids heart tie sought dan
ger with the eagerness of one who lov
ed Its every phase. Quiet, persistent,
plodding in his way, without any of
the western da.sh and audacity belong
ing to most men in his occupation, he
continually Sought the closest risks and
hazards, driven by an abnormal desire
to appear fearless. Men who had no
conception of the moaning of the word
"fear" sometimes stood apart, aghast
at the man's daring, and admired him.
Apparently without the slightest ex
citement, almost sullen of aspect, he
trailed desperate criminals to their ren
dezvous, engaged in combat against
mighty odds and waged such relentless
war upon desperadoes and outlaws
that his fame as an upholder of law
and order was spread far and w ide.
Radcllff Conrad kept his secret well.
Not a man In Slskhvah county had
ever soon him Ii I Itch from his duty, and
tales wore told In saloons and camps of
bis Intrepidity ami recklessness.
The sheriff's personal appearance
aided him. He was strongly and finely
formed. He possessed a blond head of
classic mold and a steel blue eye under
good control. His inward struggles
kept him at a tension that gave htm a
reserved and BOtUCWhat preoccupied
manner, and his every action seemed
the result of deliberation Instead of Im
pulse. The giving away to Impulse
was the thing he was trying to avoid.
He folt that some day his moral cour
age would fall him and he would stand
stripped to the gaze of his friends the
COWnrd that ho knew himself to he.
No monkish ascetic ever scourged his
fleshly sins as Hndellff Conrad did his
one egregious failing. How well he
succeeded In triumphing over It his
fame In Lava Canyon and indeed in
the mouths of men as far as the sage
brush grew to east and west attested.
There came one cruel day when the
sheriff was forced to apply the whip to
hl? tortured spirit with double force.
The town of Lava Canyon was built
on a stretch of plain sloping down to a
river from the exit of a mountain
gulch. Within this gulch was a tangled
Wlldness. Two miles back from the
town It converged to a llssure half a
mile deep like a sword out cleaving the
hills. The sides for Its whole extent
were inaccessible except to the rattle
snakes that made their dons among the
bowlders. M ithin the edge of the gulch
where the densely wooded sides began
to straighten to steeper angles stood
tho white painted cottage of Emmet
lteed, the postmaster and leading deal
er In hardware, cutlery, arms and am
munition. Here beside tho mountain
Btream and among the moss grown
rocks played the Juvenile Heeds, little
more than rushes in size, watched over
more or less carefully by Hoadlcea,
aged 20, eldest daughter of the house.
To these confines late one afternoon
came Arizona Dan, worst man In tho
county, after breaking half a thousand
dollars' worth of mirrors and glass
ware In the principal places of enter
tainment and Introducing sundry Bings
of lead Into various citizens, to tbolr
groat bodily anguish. Han was not too
drunk to entertain a wholesome fear
of Had Conrad, and It was his Inten
tion to conceal himself until darkness
should lend him cover to escape.
On being apprised of those events
the sheriff of the eounty, recognizing
his duty, prepared to effect Dan's cap
ture. A bravo man In his place who
properly estimated tho value of a good
citizen's life In comparison with the vi
tal spark of a degenerate like Arizona
Dan as a furtherance of the survival
of the littest Idea would have summon
ed a posse and by moral force of num
bers WOllld have seenred tin? surrender
of the offender without risk of blood
shod. Hadcllff Conrad was not the
man to do this. He shunned all ap
pearance t.f lack of courage, ns he de
sired In his heart to shun the danger.
"What anus did he bnvoV" asked the
sheriff of some men who had soon Ari
zona Dan's retreat to the gulch.
"Nary a one," suld a saloon keeper
who had suffered from the fugitive's
leonoelasin. "He loft both his guns in
The Sheriff unbuckled his revolver
and shoved It across the counter.
"Keep that for me," he said. "I'll go
and got Dan."
He passed slowly down tho Street,
walking In the direction of tho gulch,
and the men gazed nftor him admir
"Never knew what boln nfrnld was,
Had never!" said the mall carrier.
"He 'US born that o-wny," said the
county clerk. "A man as ain't got no

had toned dowu to a firm resolve to

and the glllcll had for many months
echoed daily wurhliugs that for clear
ness and volume, If not melodiousness,
surpassed easily any voice In Lava
Canyon. The form within the crinkling
white musllll was a storage battery of
Impetuous hie and force that needed
continually some object Upon which to
exhaust Its energy.
As Boadiccn swum,' In the grape
vine, some 300 yards up the gulch from
the house, she turned her ga/.O idly to
ward a thick clump of bushes and saw
an eye with a good deal of red In the

at her between the leaves.
She sat boll upright on the vino, and
as it appeared to bo a man's eye her
hand without any special volition of

the back of her bead, smoothed It a
little and thrust in the pins securely.
"Come out of there," she said.
Red faced and heavy eyed from

revolvorless belt, shuffled his huge
form through tho flexible branches of
tho bushes Into the path.
"Sh-sh-shl" he said, his heavy face
folding into a dull smile Intended to be

RESOURCES OF THE SOUTH.
The Development oi Our I,umber
and L*in-ral Wealth Has Only
A correspondent of the Manufacturers'
Record, who has spent a mouth of travel
aud observation in the South ami South
west, Hods everywhere in thai part of
the country a feeling of prosperity, with
merchants and manufacturers, railroad
mon and planters, farmers and men who
work for day's wages having smiles on
their faces and money in their pockets
and sharing in the belief that never he
fore has the South been so well oil'. The
impression prevails that the good times
now prevailing will not cud until there
has been a development ol the South's
resource!! approaching the advancos
made in other parts of the country, lu
analyzing the situation the correspond
out gives due credit to ten cunt cotton,
accompanied by a diversification of
crops, to the confidence of the people
burn of achievement, and to the conse
quent encouragement to greater exer
tion. He gives a glance at the strong
position gamed In cotton manufacturing
and the irou trade and says :
" But there arc other lines in which
an important development is going on
about which there is not so great popular
knowledge In railroad building the
South and Southwest now show a grca*
degree of activity, but if anyone will
take even a casual survey of the map of
the section it will become apparent that
railroad building down here is by no
means complete. There arc several
North and South lines of great inipoi
tanco, and which probably will meet all
requirements for many years to come,
but an examination will show large
areas wholly devoid of transportation
facilities. And \ < t in many of these
sections there are vast forests of the
Quest timbor, minerals of great variety
aud commercial value, and land which
when cleared will m?ke as good farms
as lie OUldooi'8. Already there are nu
merous undertakings on foot in the way
of huildiug small branch lines to open
up tracts of the character named, and it
it) evident that here w ill be a rich Hold
for development work by both railroad
constructors and real estate operators
Take Mississippi for instance. OIT the
line of the railroads there are thousands
and thousands of acres of timber which
will cut from 10,(00 to 120,000 (eel to the

per acre. The soil is an alluvial deposit
and like the famous black lands of
Texas, which now bring from $30 to $50
per acre, these lands can be worked for
yoars without using any fertilizers.
" The Idle timber lands of this section
alonc.it seems to mo, offer opportuni
ties for almost illimilah e profitable
operations. The distance between the
development of any one of these South
western Stales aud the conditions which
prevail in Massachusetts, for instance,
reveals the reason why the South is to

less every year, while in many parts of
this co on try a most primitive conditions
prevail, aud a development work re

" While OU tho subject of timber lands
I must record an astonishing change
which has occurred since I was down
here about live years ago. At that time
timber lands were almost a ding In the
