THE ROAD AGENT.
The four horse mud wagon, called by
common consent a stage, which ran be
tween Bokey'a and Logtown, was crawl
ing up the long grade which corkscrewed
around to the summit of Pilot Knob. It
was necessary to do this in order that a
good preparatory start might be had for
itltj BU-uO-u-cCiilig tattling pluHgC doV* ii
the other corkscrew road, which led to
By the side of Black Pete, tha driver,
sat an eastern importation of the genus
"drummer." Pete rolled his tobacco into
his cheek, snapped a fly off the ear of his
leader and said:
"No, sir; 1 don't git no pay fer fightin,
and 1 don't do no fightin for ther com
pany. If ary galoot stops this hyer
stage and perlitely like asks for the cash
box, he's a gwine ter get it "Taint no
use, no wayB. to fight them fellers; they
always hev ther drap on ye."
"But," said the drranmer, "were you
ever robbed on this route?"
"Wal, no, but Tve seed fellers loafing
round heer ez I've thought monght do it
some time or other."
"And if they did stop you, you would
give them the express box and drive on,
"You betl If ther express company
wants to pertect ther box they must send
a messenger along with it."
The stage crawled slowly up to the
top of the hill, and Black Pete settled his
foot firmly on the brake strap, and with
a "Scat 'em, boys!" the sweating horses
started to investigate the mysteries of
the almost invisible road below them on
a keen gallop.
Bound and round the rapidly varying
road the stage and passengers whirled,
sometimes losing sight of the horses
around the sharp turns and again slew
ing sharply outward toward the danger
ous edge of the canyon, which yawned
below them. The sun was down and
the moon was painting weird shadows
on the powdered dust of the grade.
It was just the time for the imagina
tion to picture scenes of violence, rob
bery and blood. Suddenly the chapar
ral bushes by the roadside slightly part
ed, and a long, shining, black object
was waved over them toward the stage.
A shadowy figure rose in the moonlight
among the bushes, and from behind a
black veil, which smothered the voice
somewhat, came the hoarse command:
Black Pete hurriedly pushed his foot
heavily down upon the brake, reached
down into the bottom of the stage,
pulled out the express box and threw it
into the road, muttering:
"Cuss ye, take it!"
The restless horses immediately plung
ed away into the shadows of the forest.
"Wa—was that a highwayman?" gasp
ed the drummer.
"in course it was," answered Pete.
"Didn't yer see ther shooting iron? Thar
goes a cool thousand dollars, as | knows
now. You bet ther boys'll be out arter
him tonight. I shouldn't wonder if that
war old Bart himself. He's a cool one,
he is. He always shoots his mouth off
in some poetry. He leaves it in the box
when he gets through with it. Didn't
yer notice how level he held that thar I
shooting iron right toward me?"
The lights of Logtown now glistened
below them, and a few turns of the cork
screw road brought the stage up to the
hotel porch where it stopped with a loud
"Whoa!" from Pete.
Not many minutes elapsed before tbe
prophecy of Pete was realized, for as
soon as the story of the bold robbery of
Wells & Fargo's box was related a dozen
or so ready miners volunteered to search
the woods for the road agent. After half
an hour's swearing and drinking over
the matter they saddled their horses and
started for the scene of the robbery.

It was a little, cramped up, helter
skelter mining town among the Sierras.
One need not rise early in Scar's Hole to
see the sun rise, for he will not see it if he
does. Old Sol is never visible there un
til 10 in the morning. The rough, pic
turesque cabins, looking for all the world
like dilapidated dice thrown at random
from the box, were built deep down in a
hole between the surrounding peaks.
And yet they actually had a telephone
connecting them with the outside world.
The denizens of Scar's Hole were not
given to an indulgence in business com
munications with tbe great commercial
centers, but their telephone was the
means of preventing many of the in
habitants from spending the remainder
of their early days at the insane asylum.
Such was their inborn detestation of
any man who followed any pursuits
which did not require active labor with
his hands, and such was their chivalric
devotion to the fair sex that the man
agement of their part of the telephone
was given to a young lady of the name
of Frances Goldsmith.
On the afternoon of June 29, 1880,
Miss Frank, as she was usually called,
sat in the little telephone office waiting
for the nightly crowd of manly gossip
ers to come to it. The litfie rocking
chair in which she sat went bumping to
and fro noisily and nervously upon the
pine floor, and tha tiny slippered foot
beat a nervous tattoo in unison with it.
"It's too bad," she cried, impetuously,
"for Charlie to work down in that old
hole in the ground all the winter, and
then sell out for a paltry thousand. And
he's doing it just so he can be married
this summer;" and a pretty little wave
of blood swept over the sweet neck and
face. He shan't do it. Chariie don't
know anything about a mine, and he
might have a little bonanza and not
know it. Just hear the dear simpleton!''
Mr PaECiona Frank—Bonn ts negotiating
with me for my claim, and he offers me $1,000
cash. 1 have not yet accepted it, but I have
about made up my mind that 1 had better do
do. You know if I had that much cash I could
have the face to ask yon to hasten that long-
Hoped-for happy day. For your sake, darling.
1 believe it will be the best for me to take this
offer. If I do you may look for me down early
next week. Forever yours,
"Hello, Frank," shouted a smothered
voice.close to her ear, "are you there
Frances jumped to her feet and ran to
"Dear me, I left the receiver hanging
down and they could not ring the bell."
She put it to her ear and shouted back
through the transmitter:
"Yes, fm here; what is it?"
■'Don't you forget to send that thou
sand up on the stage tonight to Logtown.
Tom says there's at least flO.OOO in sight.
Motley is a schoolmarm, and don't know
it Don't forget, now. Goodby."
Frank's pretty eyes and mouth spread
wider and wider as those words came
out of the wonderful little instrument.
"For goodness' sake! who is he talk
ing to? Oh, y-e-s! why, it must be to
Frank Downey, the express agent at
Bokey. They've been talking together,
and Downey has stopped and switched
my end on. Motley is a schoolniarm, ia
he? There's #10.000 in sight, and Charlie
doesn't know ft ami thft money is coins
up there on the stage from Bokey to
night Oh. dear! what shall 1 do? I'll
go up there. 1 will. It's only eight
miles, and it's twenty from Bokey. It's
5 o'clock and the stage gets there at 9.",
Frank was a California girl, and there
was no perils to her on the eight mile
trail to Logtown: and if there had been,
the slur cast upon Charlie's keenness
and the eager desire to save that "SIO,OOO
in sight" for him, would have been suffi
cient incentives to induce her to dare
them, though she knew they awaited
her. Running over to the postoffice,
she hurriedly engaged the young clerk
to take care of the instrument for her,
and. dashing back to her room, soon ap
peared ready for the eight mile walk to
The sun was yet very hot, although al
most down behind the hills. The trail
was steep and rock} - ; but Frank pushed
on, muttering to 'herself, when she felt
so tired .«he was tempted to sit down
"Charlie's a schoolmarm, is he? Ten
thousand dollars in sight, and he doesn't
know it, eh? Well, he shall know it
and have all the credit of the discovery
Up, up, down, down, around and
around wound the mountain trail, and
Frank wound with it, until tired, dusty,
breathless, hoarse and almost crying,
she saw the county highway in the som
ber moonlight just below her.
Just as she reached tho roadside and
was about to push through the chapar
ral which here reached to her shoulders
she heard the rumbling stagecoach com
ing around the bend close to her. Witli
the despairing resolve to go in at least
with the stage if she could not before it
she pnshed her parasol through the
bushes and waved it to the driver,
shouting at the same time, hoarse from
But to her astonishment and dismay,
instead of stopping the driver reached
down into the botJt, and with a "Cuss
yer, take it?" threw a heavy box into the
road and, lashing his four-in-hand into a
run, disappeared down the canyon.
Poor Frank crouched down into the
chaparral in despair.
"Oh, dear! I haven't walked there
and I've lost the stage, and poor Charlie
—oh, dear me!"
The spirit of a genuine California girl
is not easily overcome with despair, and
Frank was a genuine California girl, and
she was not to be beaten until she was. She
got up, pullen her black veil tighter over
her moist face and bravely started on
again to Logtown. It was not far, and
not a half hour _ elapsed before she saw
the lights of the little samp scattered
around in the canyon below her.
Breathless and panting she hurried on
to the tavern. A great crowd of men
were excitedly swearing and threaten
ing on the porch. Some were in the
street cinching saddles on to their horses,
and in their midst stood Black Pete, the
"Don't 1 know?" he was -angrily shout
ing. "I tell yer twar only a mile back,
an ther cuss shoved his shooting iron
right tinder my nose. Why didn't I run
fer it? Thar war two uv 'em thar, as
sure as fightin."
Pretty soon, with a yell and a whoop,
twenty men galloped up the road with a
suggestive looking rope dangling from
one of the saddles.
Poor Frank hastened to find Charlie.
She found him sitting disconsolately on
the back porch.
"Why, Frank, what in the world are
you doing here?"
"Oh, Charlie, have you sold that mine
yet? Am 1 too late?"
"Too late for what? Sold it? No; and
I don't believe 1 can. That man Benn
sent the money up by express, and a road
agent got away with tlie stage tonight
and the money went with it. 1 don't
believe he'll risk another thousand on a
played out mind."
"Oh, goodie!" cried Frank. "I've got
here in time. Road agent! That is too
rich! Oh, dear, I shall die!" Frank's
j voice ended in a high squeak of laughter.
"Frank, what is the matter? What do
I you know about the road agent?"
Frank was holding her sides in despair
of stopping her irrepressible laughter.
"Road agent? There wasn't any road
agent at all. I stopped the stage to get
ou, and the driver threw a box at me."
"What does this mean, Frank? Tell
me. What were you doing on the road
at this time of night, and all alone?"
It took a long time to get the story
out, but she did, while Charlie stood
with his mouth open wide enough to
represent his played out claim with
; "SIO,OOO in sight."
I No sooner had Frank told her story
! than he caught her in his arms with a
"You little darling, you shall have
every cent of itl"
About two hours afterward a file of
disconsolate, disgusted horsemen select
ed their way up to the tavern, with a
"suggestive rope dangling from one of
the saddles" and a box containing $1,000.
It is sufficient to relate that Charlie
did not sell his "SIO,OOO in sigbt," but,
on the contrary, receive I a much larger
sum—sufficient, in fact, to make him a
happier man financially and matrimo
nially. When enough of the story had
been told in the barroom to account for
the stopping of the stage, Black Pete
had to provide for a smile all around,
with a continuendo.-*St Louis Repub
