came the third
state Just six days
after Pennsylvania
had formally
adopted the Consti
tution. This terri
tory, which covers
8,224 square miles, originally was a
part of the province of New Nether
lands. In 1664, after the English con
quest of New Netherlands, the duke
of York sold the southern portion to
Lord Berkeley and Sir George Car
teret. The later had won some dis
tinction as governor of the little is
land of Jersey in the English channel,
and It was in his honor that the new
province came to be called New Jer
sey. The eastern portion, that about
Newark, was settled by Carteret and
the territory to "the southwest,-where
Burlington and Trenton now stand,
fell to Berkeley. After a few years
Berkeley sold his share to a party of
Quakers and two distinct provinces
were formed, called East and West
Jersey. They were reunited, however,
in 1702, and become a single province

17S8, Georgia
accepted the Con
stitution and be
came the fourth
state In the Union.
The settlement of
Georgia was con
ceived as a buffer against the depre
dations of the Spaniards and Indians,
whose invasion of South Carolina had
reached a climax lri 1715 with a raid
in which four or five hundred settlers
had been massacred. To protect South
Carolina from future inroads James
Oglethorpe planned a colony to the
south, and In 1732 he obtained from
George II agrant of land. The new
territory was consequently named
Georgia, after the king. The deed
states that the land was granted "in
trust for the poor." This referred to
Oglethorpe's plan to have as the set
tlers the Insolvent debtors who, ac
cording to the laws of that time In
England, were cast In prison. Many of
these were released from prisons and,
re-enforced by some Germans and
Scotch Highlanders, founded the town
of Savannah In 1733 and rapidly
spread up and down the coast, where
successful plantations of rice and Indi
go soon became established. Georgia
continued to prosper until the popula
tion of its 59,265 square miles entitles
it to a representation of 14 presiden
tial electors.
Coupled With Their Belief in "Magic,'
Indians Possess Interesting Sto
ries of the Creation.
Civilized Indians are very reluctant
to give up their belief in magic. The
idea of worshiping objects is quite a
settled one among the tribes, and some
stories which connect corn and flow
ers with beneficent deities are very
pleasing and attractive. Animals, too,
are spoken of in a very singular and
superstitious manner, and the different
sizes of the beasts which are hunted
is accounted for In a story of the crea
tion, which has many variations, but
always agrees that at the time of the
creation all of the beasts clamored for
priority in size.
Each vas vain and dictatorial, and
one after another was humbled by be
ing made smaller than a hated enemy,
the idea being that everything human
and otherwise that was born had a
prior existence and came Into the
world with the benefit of the experi
ence thus derived.
Indians In many tribes believe In
the doctrine of transmigration of souls,
by which is meant that they believe
souls, after the death of the bodies of
animals that they have inhabitedpass

"I have tried, said Harris, "and It's
ao use. She's got those notions like
Beulah quittin' work, and twilignts
and sunsets and all that kind o
thing. There's no use talkin' with her;
eason don't count for anything. .1
'rave her a good pocketful o money,
and told her to write for more when
she needed it. She'll get over her no
tions pretty soon when she gets among
strangers. Go in and have a talk with
her, boy ; there's no use you bein at
outs with her, too. As for me, I can't
do anything more."
"J suppose you know best," he an
swered, "but it seenis hang .it, it's
against all reason that you two that
this should happen."
"Of course It is. That's what I said
a mlnufe ago. But reason don't count
just now. But you have your talk
with her, and give her any help you
can if she wants t get away at once."
Allan found his mother In her room,
packing a trunk and gently weeping
into it. He laid his hand upon her.
and presently he found her work-worn
frame resting in his strong arms.
"You're not going to leave us', moth
er, are you?" he said. "You wouldn't
do that?"
"Not if it could be helped. Allan.
But there Is no help. Your father has
set his heart on more land, and more
work, and giving up this home, and I
might as well go first as last. More
and more he is giving his love to work
instead of to his family. Perhaps when
I am away for a while he'll come to
himself. That's our only hope."
The boy stood helples's in this con
nection. He knew something of the
depth of the nature of his parents, and
he knew that beneath an undemonstra
tive exterior they cherished in secret a
love proportionate to the strength of
their character. But the long course
down which they had walked together
seemed now to be separating, through
neither will nor power of their own ; it
was as though straight parallel lines
suddenly turned apart, and neither
lost its straightness in the turning.
So he comforted his mother with
such words as he could. Loyalty to
his father forbade laying any of the
blame on those shoulders, and to
blame his mother was unthinkable; so
with unconscious wisdom he spoke not
of blame at all. t
"Of course, while we are away, why
shouldn't you have a visit?" he said.
"Here you have been chained down to
this farm ever since I can remember,
and before. And then, when I get set
tled on my own homestead, you'll come
and keep house for me, won't you?"
"You're sure you'll want me?" she
asked," greatly comforted by his. mood.
"Perhaps you'll be getting your own
housekeeper, too."
"Not while I can have you," he an
swered. "You'll promise, won't you?
Nothing that has happened, or can
happen, will keep you from making
my home yours, will it? And when
Dad gets settled again, and. gets all
these worries "off his mind, then
things'll be different, and you'll come,
even if he is there?"
"Yes, I'll come, even If he is there,
if you ask me," she promised.
Harris did not come back that night.
A light rain came up, and he accepted
the excuse to sleep at Riles'. The
truth was, he feared for his resolution
if it should be attacked by both his
wife and son. Surrender now would
be mereiweakness. and weakness was
disgrace, and yet he feared for himself
if put to the test again. So he stayed
at Riles', and the two farmers spent
"You're Not Going to Leave Us, Moth
er, Are You?"
much of the night over their plans. It
had been decided that they were to
leave within the. next couple of days,
but Harris broke the. news that his
wife was going on a visit, and that ar
rangements would have to be made for
the care of the farm.
Riles took the suggestion of a few
days' delay with poor grace.
"Yes, an' while you're chasing up an
down fer a housekeeper the Yankees
get all the homesteads. They're co ra
in in right now by the train load,
grabbin' up everythin In sight. We'll
monkey round here till the summer's
over, an' then go out an get a sand
farm, or something like. Couldn't your
wife do her visitin no .other time?"
Til tell you. Riles," said Harris,
who had no desire to pursue a "topic
which might lead him Into deep water,
"you' go ahead out and get the lay of
the land, and I'll follow you within ai
'js m ft j r -f y
week. I'll do that, for sure, and I'll
stand part of your expenses for going
ahead, seein' you will be kind o repre
sent' me."
The last touch was a stroke of diplo
macy. The suggestion that Harris
should pay part of his expenses swept
away Riles bad humor, and he agreed
to go on the date originally planned,
and get what he. called "a bede on the
easy money." while Harris completed
his arrangements at home.
lie was to get "a bede on the easy
money" in a manner which Harris lit- j
tie suspected. I
When Harris returned home the
next forenoon he found that Mary had
already left for Plainville. He sat
down and tried to think, but the house
was very quiet, and the silence op
pressed him. 'lle looked at his
watch, and concluded he bad still
time to reach Plainville before the
train would leave. But that would
mean surrender, and surrender meant
A Whiff of New Atmosphere.
Riles found the journey westward a
tiresome affair. It was his first long
rail journey in oyer 20 years, but his
thoughts were on the cost of travel
rather than on th wonderful strides
which had been made in its comfort
and convenience.
As fate would have It. Riles selected
as the base of his homestead opera
tions the very foothill town to which
Beulah Harris had come a few weeks
before. He sought out the cheapest
hotel, and having thrown his few be
longings on the bed, betook himself to
t!e bar room, which seemed the chief
center of activity, not only of the ho
tel itself, but of the little town. Men
were lined three deep against the ca
pacious bar. shouting, swearing, and
singing, and spending their money with
an abandon not to be found in mil
lionaires. Riles debated with himself whether
the occasion justified the expenditure
i of 10 cents for a drink when a hand
was placed on his shoulder, and a
voice said, "Have one with me, neigh
bor." He found himself addressed by
a man of about his own age. shorter
and somewhat lighter of frame and
with a growing hint of corpulence.
The stranger wore a good pepper-and-salt
suit, and the stone on his finger
danced like a real diamond.
"Don't mind if I do. since y mention
It," said Riles, with an attempted smile
which his bad eye rendered futile. One
of the bartenders put something in
his glass which cut all the way down,
but Riles sieedily'forgot it In a more
exciting Incident. The man in the
pepper-and-salt suit had laid half a
dollar on the bar, and no change came
back. Riles congratulated himself on
his own narrow escape.
You'll be looking for land?" In
quired the stranger, when both were
breathing easily again.
"Well, maybe I am, and maybe I
ain't." said Riles guardedly. He had
heard something of the ways of confi
dence men and was determined not to
be taken for an easy mark.
"A man of Kome judgment I see."
said his new acquaintance, quite un
abashed. "Well, I don't bla ne you for.

of people and money into the West has

"the other night "
What happened the other night re
mained untold, for at that moment
came a clattering of horse's lsoofs on
the wooden walk at the door, and a
moment later a gayly arrayed cowboy
rode right into the room, his !wrse
prancing and bodying from side to side
to clear the crowd away, then facing
up to the bar as though it were his
manger. Riles expected trouble, and
was surprised when the feat evoked a
cheer from the bystanders.
"That's 'Horseback George." said the
man in the pepper-and-salt.. "They
say he sleeps on his horse. Rides
right into a bar as a matter of course,
end maybe shoots a few bottles off the
shelves as a demonstration before he
goes out. But lie always settles, and
nobody minds his little peculiarities."
Horseback George treated himself
twice, proffering each glass to his
horse before touching it himself, and
stroking with one hand the animal's
ears as he raised the liquor to his lips.
Then he threw a bill at the bar tender
and, with a wild whoop, slapped the
horse's legs with his hat, and dashed
at a gallop out of the bar room and
away down the trail.
Riles betook himself to his room. He
had just got into bedwhen a knock
came at the door.
"Who's there?" he demanded.
"Geh'l'man to see Mr. Riles," said
the porter.
"Well, shoot 'im in. The door ain't
locked," said Riles. In considerable
wonderment as to who his visitor
The door opened, and a well-dressed
man of "average height, with carefully
combed 'hair . and clean-shaven Nface,
save for a light mustache, stood re
vealed in the uncertain glow of the

ing to find his lamp. His visitor was a

yet with some subtle. quality in his ex

"Hello, Hiram," he said quietly.

did you?" ,

"It's a nig country, Hiram, he said
with a touch of bitterness, "but not

In." He sat down on the side of the
bed and lit a cigar, tendering another
to Riles, and the two men puffed in
silence for a few minutes.
"Yes, I've hit a lot of trail since I
saw you last." he continued, "and

Rockies you're a long piece from Plain

"Nothing to speak of," said the oth

cigar." "Nothing to speak of. You

over it."
"Well, when a fellow gets up against

Riles, with great candor, "that's his fu-

agen Plainville. You made a little
money there yourself, didn't you?"
The younger man leaned back and
slowly puffed circles of fragrant smoke
at the ceiling, while Riles surveyed
him from the head of the bed. He had
been a business man in Plainville, but
had become involved In a theft case,
and had managed to escape from the
town simply because a fellow man
whom he had wronged did not trouble
to press the matter against him.
Gardiner showed no disposition to
reopen the conversation about Plain
ville, so at last Riles asked, "How
d'you know I was here?"
"Saw your scrawl on the register,"
he said, "and I've seen it too often on
wheat tickets to forget It. Thought
I'd look you up. Maybe can be of
