The news spread like wildfire through the camp. All the miners were half crasy over the find, a.nd de serted their old claims to search for new ones. There was no doubt of the vast wealth that lay in the mine which Bill and Rivers had opened. It was a settled fact that the men had more money than they could ever realize beaming down upon them as the mining ore should be turned out. w^Sh beds in the little cottage they For a moment Rivera was silent.

Yes, now he could clasp her slender hand in his and give her all the riches he possess ed in retnrn. Over and over again he called her name. Bill spftly stroked the brown hair from his forehead, and as he did so Rivers said: "It is so soft—her little hand—it rests me to feel it on my head." And he lapsed again into a restless sleep. "Durn that big paw!" said Bill, looking at his rough, brawny hand, and then at the white forehead on the Eand ®lvere occasional sprees, although they had illow.

She came with the doc tor. Bijl stood inside the door, and looked like a bashful schoolboy in the presence of this stranger, who seemed to be taking his place and caring for Rivers when he ought to be doing so. But be asked no ques tions, and waited for the doctor's answer. "Just keep the camp quiet, Bill, and Miss Lancnster will give the medicine and see to the rest. He is worn -out with excitement, anJ a little quiet, with good nursing will make things right. If the fever is no better in six hours let me know." And that was all the explanation Bill got from the doctor. Was she a professional nurse? Bill giiessed so. And he thought how nice it would be if he could be sick when Rivers got well. The camp was still—Bill ordered it so and eyery man asked how the "tenderfoot" was and how was the "gal." "Dunno,"was all the answer they got to the latter question, and Bill told all he knew when he said that. Rivers was in a serious condition, and before the. six hours were up a horseman dashed out of the' camp and after a doctor. It was Ute Bilf He could not stand by and Bee him toss back and forth in the bed. It was too much. Hewasn't used toit. The doctor had to make another trip—Bill said Rivers was worse. When the doctor had made an ex amination of his patient he declared the worst was passed, and left Rivers Bleeping quietly under a gentle nar cotic. All this time the girl had not re leased her watch by the..'bedside, and she seemed to be soothing away the delirium of the fever in gently pass ing her hands over the, sick' man's temples. Her eyes never left off their watch of every movement of the "tenderfoot's" face, and BUI stood by wonderingly, casting a furtive glance at the delicately featured face bending over his pard's pillow, and trying to solve the problem in his mind. Hours passed, and finally, with a long sigh, Rivers opened his eyes and looked at Bill leaning over the foot of the bed. Then his wandering atten tion was fixed on the anxious face by his side. There was no glad cry of recognition—it was a niutual un derstanding. All the warmth of his great love was expressed in the gen tle whispered name "Lillian," as he drew her face to'his. Resting her head on his shoulders, she told him of the long years of waiting for tid ings from mm and the hasty letter from Omaha^.which she had only re ceived, a few days before. She had left home, friends, everything, and gone to seek him in the wild west, she knew not where, but she had found him. 4|Pd Bill had disappeared. A few days afterward one of the "pards" gave up his claim to the little cabin, and the minister said the ceremony which linked two lives in to a world of their own. Many and hearty were the rou congratulations. That evening fw miners gathered at the little home to say a word of welcome to the beauti ful young bride. Even if it were spoken by a big, rowdy miner like Bill, there wasageniune ring of man liness about it, and made her feel quite at home in the wild, pictur esque spot so far from every sign of civilization. As the men filed out Blowly Rivers conducted his girl wife to the porch of the rude cabin, and, standing close by his side, she sang one verse of "Home, Sweet Home." The tender, symyathetic voice fell on the still night air with a wonderful sweetness, and awakened many old memories in the hearts of the rough, coarse miners gathered there. ugh the Heads were uncovered and there were tears wiped hastily away as Bill led them to the saloon. Was there rough talking and coarse jests now? No. As each man raised his glass a solemn hush fell, upon the group, broken at last by Ute Bill's voice. It was choked and unnatural. "Boys," he said, "I never had but one pard, but I give him up to the best pard a man ever cot. And I'll never have another till" I get one like his." Bill set his glass down and walked away abruptly. It was not long un til tne saloon was deserted and the camp hushed in the repose of night. After that Bill did not seem like his old self. He was quiet and solemn. Iri He lenew what was the matter, bat did hot care to let the boys know where the sunshine had fallen on his rough heart and then so suddenly been swept away. The next spring came, and the doc tor made another trip to the little cabin. When Ute Bill went up the next day Rivers led him into the dainty bedroom and gave him a peep at the tiny baby girl that had come that night. The big rough hand closed tightly over the one of a more delicate mold that was laid in hiB, and the two men understood each other. There were tears in Bill's eyes and an ache in his heart which no one but Rivers should ever know as he turned silently away. The miners gathered again in the saloon to drink to the health of the mother and hear Bill, now glowing with animation, tell about the baby and its queer ways until they all want ed to see the youngster. A vote was taken, and the camp was to be chris tened after the baby, and Bill had forgotten to ask her name. Away he went, and. soon returned. He looked sheepish and finally came for ward and said: '.'Boys, yer got me this time. They've called her 'Utella!' as near my name as they could get, and it's my layout. What'll ye hev?" The glasses clinked merrily, and Mr. Bill beamed with happiness. Not a day passed that Bill did not visit the cottage, andaB the wee babe grew to a toddling, lisping girl, Bill was her chief sympathizer, and the boys in the camp at last called him "Uncle Bill." "There'sno harm inmelovin' her." he said one day as he stroked the surly brown head nestled against his breast "the other wasn't for me." And Rivers glanced up quickly at Bill, and then to bis. wife, who was sitting by the doorway with her dainty fingers busy in mending a little frock. "It was before I knew"—and Bill swallowed a big lump rising in his throat and tried to go on, but his voice broke and he trembled in a vain effort to suppress his emotion. Ris ing suddenly he left the cabin. 'hat was years ago. The mining camp has disappeared and only tho lonely cottage marks the spot where it once stood. Stanley Rivers lives with his wife and dark eyed girl in an eastern city and enjoys the wealth he made in the picturesque spot which now bears the name of Chey enne canyon. Bill never married he loved the beautiful girl who sat by the bedside of his sick "pard he loved the tiny babe who played upon his knees and laid her soft cheek against his own. And when he died they found a little shoe which con tained a slip of paper. It only said: "Give all my dust to my pard's baby." And Ute Bill, the roughest miner in the camp, was buried near the little cottage in Cheyenne canyon.—New York Star. Why Oklahoma Is Coveted* "Iwas down in that Oklahoma country three years ago," said an officer of Gen. Miles' staff, at the Cafe Royal. "It is certainly a beauti ful region for the agriculturist, and it is no wonder the lands are coveted. The soil is rich and well watered, the country is a rolling prairie, the climate is mild and equable, the grass in summer is. 'belly deep,' railroads are now built and" two through the heart of the vast, unoccupied do main. Anything can be grown there that will grow in Missouri or Ar kansas. It would be the finest fruit country in the world. At Fort Reno peaches, pears and plums are. raised which cannot be equaled anywhere outside of California. The most magnificent corn I ever saw is raised in Oklahoma by the few half breeds allowed to tilt the soil. There are splendid streams, the Canadian river and its north fork, which course through the land. There is no snow, very little frost, arid never a sign of a blizzard. It does seem a pity that such* a shperb agricultural region should be shut out from settlement and given over in perpetuity to a worthless lot of Indians, who cannot use it even as a hunting ground."— San Francisco Examiner.

The woman did so, the signal to start was given and Provost walked the car and deposited the cherub, as he supposed, in the mother's lap. '"What's this for?" said the female passenger, excitedly. "It's your baby, ma'am," respond ed Provost with a smile. "My babyl" shouted the now thor oughly aroused pawenger. "Why, I'm a single woman I never had a baby in my life!" Just then the mother of the child cried out: "Here I am, brine the baby here." Provost at once made a profound apology, but the distinguished fe male passenger wouldn't look at him. Big Palm Leaves. Trees ofthe palm family have larger leaves than any others. Thelnaja palm, which grows on tho banks of the Amazon, has leaves which reach a length of from thirty to fifty feet and are ten to twelve feet in breath. Specimens of the leaves ofthe Talipot palm, a native of Ceylon, have been met with that are twenty feet long and eighteen feet broad. These leaves are used by the natives to make tents and form very efficient shelter from the rain. The leaves of the double cocoanut palm are often thirty feet long and several feet wide. When the wind iB strong they clash togeth er with a noise that may be heard at a great distance. Only one leaf is produced in a year, and they are so firmly attached to the stem of the tree and so strong in themselves that a man may sit on the end of one and, rock to and fro with perfect safety. 1 I THEIR LAST WORDS.
