"Here sucoess to crime," exclaimed one 01 the1 cattle men, and wun a son. dued langh every glass wan emptied The old Californian remarked that ''twas wonderful bow whisky turned a man when be wasn't used to it," appropbs of the fiery stuff having gone against tbe tenderfoot's breath, and there was more subdued merriment. . .. . . "Vamoae," cried "Shorty" as he turn- ed out the lights snd the whole party filed into tbe darkness. ; , Down the bill Jbey went toward a small two-roomed adobe a short distance from the ofSce of the Great Expectation mine. At soma thirty, yards trom tbe office a few men silently detached them selves from the party and took up their position as gaads. to prevent the ap- p-oach of strangers. The rest' moved silently on. Outside the door they ball ed for a whispered consultation' which lasted but a minute., Then two men took from the woodpile close by a heavy piece of timber. With terrible , force they drove it against the wooden door of the calaboose. It held. The noise, thoogb, awoke their victim. The 'rattle of bis shackles as be rouBed himself Irom his blanket was distinctly audible. "In with her," yelled a dozen voices, and at tbe second blow of tbe impromptu battering rem tbe door fell shivering.from its hin ges and about a dozen men, entered. Wild Jake stood before them in the rays of a dark lantern,' completely at their mercy. , A tall, swarthy, well built fel low of abont 36.' Tbe face was open and frank, bat the long waving hair and piercing dark eyea recalled Joaquin Mil ler's description of Walker, "half angel and half Lacifer." ? .- "What do you want of me, gentle men f" . he aeked in tones utterly free frjgm the slightest suspicion of border slang. "Ye know what we want,' said Shorty. "Yeve got to go where there ain t no new trials, no Supreme Court, an' where have-jou-hi8 corpus ain't ; bo Harry op ; we can t slay bere "Well, gentlemen, I snpposed it would come to this sooner or later. If I -had not been drunk I would have taken a fair warning and stayed away. I can' go fait with these shackles on bat 1 II go as last ss I can." , i- .Surrounding their prisoner they. led him to the hoisting works of tbe mam moth mine. A rope was quickly thrown over a beam and the prisoner was asked if be htd anything to say or any confes sion to make. He had neither,; he nly wanted the small favor ol beici? allowed to die with his boots off It was a small favor-to etlying msn and at once grant ed. A blacksmith belonging to the vig lance committee procured a hammer and telling Jake to pat his left and then bis right foot on a small anvil used to sharp en miner's tools, knocked his shackles od in a few minutes, j . . -Now," said Jake seating himself on the anvil, 'draw off my boots and l am ready." Tbe man bent to do as requested when quick as .a flash down came the ring of tbe heavy iron shackle on his nnproteot ed bead. -. He fell like an ox, and almost at the same instant Jake drew the nnfor tnnate man's pistol from his belt,nd be fore anj pne had time to realize what had happened he disappeared with shout in the darkness. With an equally wild shout his captors followed, spread out as skirmishers so as not to miss the trail. A few of the oldf r men went back to get horses, while tbe younger ones continued ine cnase. nun tne gray dawn Jake's trail was discovered ; it led toward Lordsburg abont four miles dis t ant, to, which point the construction train of the Northern Pacific had reached. Shorty" tbongnt that if Jake could get a horse at, Lordsburg and et in there ahead be might escape. The mob pressed on all the harder. Soon Jake could be seen down on the mesa running along with the peculiar dog trot of the Apache Indian. He was well out of range. Soon be was seen to enter the town near the Ralston Honse and ran across toward the railroad track. Tho crowd increased its speed and rifles in band rushed into the plszt in front of the hotel. - An en gine attached to two flat cars stood puf Bog on tbe track. In the cab stood Wild Jake while the engineer lay at bis feet, Jake's right foot resting firm upon bis heart. Jake was covered by a dozen ri Acs while several voices called opon bim to surrender.

While tbe train was in sight not a sound was beard nor a movement made by tbe men from whose clutches the des perado had escaped. "Bast my skin !" at length exclaimed Poker Joe, "if be hasn't seen oar pile and called ns. ' "Well, be bad tbe dead drop on a sure," said Shorty. .

AUNT MADELINE. Preserving a Sweet" Disposition Through Lite's Adversities. "Gad ! she's tbe only really beautiful old woman fever saw."": - Tbe speaker was one of a group of men who stood on the steps of a cburob one Sunday morning a few years ago in a fair city of which we all know. The group had apparently been dis cussing the woman whose appearance called forth the exclamation. I followed the direction of tbei: looks and found ample warrant for tbe emphat'.c utterance wbicH T had dnrhtm?' r ' The association of old age with un common womanly beaaty in one person is rare enough to excuse tbe curiosity that impelled me to learn this woman s history. I will not, therefore, offcr any apology for what the reader, and poBsi bly the lady herself, may regard as an mpertinence. It is a fact that I did learn tbe story of her life, stranger though. I am in tbe city that is her home. It is not a thrilling tale. . There is in it not one essentially dramatic incident. Yet it moves me to deeper emotion and stirs within me a loftier admiration than the story of many a lire that gerius has snatched out of the common for immor tality. ! ? ' Antt Madeline ("for so she Is called by those who love her) would smile in mild reproof if any cne were to say to her, ' Yon are beautiful" so msny years have come and gone since she gave much thought for herself. Hers is a two-fold beauty, being made up of those singular graces of person which attracted tbe no tice of the group at chnrcb on that Suu- dav morning and tbe higher graces of I la that is consecrated to others witbont flourish or'pretenie of self abnegation. I shall first try to tell bow she appear ed from my own point of view. The narrative proper shall be in the words of the pastor, to whom I am bound for It, as nearly as I csn set them down. Tbe figure is tall and tbe carriage graceful. She walks like one accustomed to free exercise. ' Her attire is nndem ably elegant. Tbe least practical " ob server c f such things may see at a glanc that it came from tbe hands rf a fash ionable maker. I determine therefore. that she ii not too poor to gratKy her natural woman's taste for daintiness of dress.' Her face quite btffla my pow era ot desctiptton. It is the fsce of sixty years. That I have learned; bat when looking into it one does not think cf l's years. I can not sav that it con forrrs to any established standard of beauty, having neither a "pretty" chin nor the "sooltul eyes of which we bear so much In Verbal portraits of beautiful women. Nevertheless I aru realy to stake my judgment on the general prop. osition that It is one of the loveliest faces that was ever seen oat of dreams, The nose, I mast say, is of perfect mold the hair is a pare white mass arranged in a Grecian coil at the back, parted in the middle and falling in fleecy waves over the temples, half covering the ears and forming a truly artistic frame for the never-to be-fojgotten face, She speaks to a young girl at ber side and her smile discloses a month full ol natural teeth, whose whiteness time has not touched and whose perfect syrnme try is unbroken. Her skin is clear and fresh an elo quent tribute to right living and A sign of freedom from those vanities of women on wbich the fortunes of nostrum ma ker are built. ' O ie can not doabt that she is an old woman bat her years are years of peace of purity, of sweet piety, of wholesome restraints.' I do not marvel that her face is glorified. ' - "Aunt Madeline was one ' of two sis ter, said my friend, the pastor, in be ginning the recital which I am tn repro duce. "Her father was a politician, and an honest man. He loved truth for its own sake, and though he filled many offices he died poor,' leaving his mother less daughter nothing in the way of for tune except the modest home in which they were born- nnd reared Madeline was twenty and E hel, her aister, fifteen, when they were called to face tbe world. A livelihood must be made for both, and it was clear enough that one of them oonld nndertake the dubious task. Tbe ciild Ethel assuredly was not -equipped f r it. Medeline alone mast roll the heavv stone up the bill. "With what resolute courage and eim pie faith in herself she st to woik, we who have always known ber best under stood. She made no feeble appeals for helr. A few of us gaye ber counsel from time to tine, when she asked it. hut that was all. bhe ceased to ask even so much long years ago, and I, at least, have many times been proud to bj counseled by ker; for a wiser woman. I never knsw. ' . . "After her father's funeral expenses were settled there may have been fifty dollars in the bouse. Madeline saw that immediate action was imperative What should she what could she do to earn an income? It was not hard to answei tbe question. In. her happier and leis ure girlhood she had moderately devel oped a faculty for writing children eto ries, some of which had found their way into print. She resolved to make a se rious test of her powers in that direc tion, and in the coarse of a few weeks, urged on by necessity, she produced a small volume of tales., A publisher was found whn undertook to put the volume forth and pay Msdeline a fair royalty., The venture was moderately prosperous. O hers followed, and after ten years ol straggle the hard-worked author found herself ia possession of sn income tuat was more than sufficient for her own and Ethel's needs. It was about th's time that Ethel man led. Madeline, was now thirty and unmarried. She a ill re mains unmarried, and on that tact btngis the nnble.devotion and tbe single-heartedness of thi woman whose life has been a beautiful and constant exemplifi cation of faith in the dear God whom she serves with such unostentatious zeal "In the early days of her struggle she loved and promised herself in marriage to Joe Bertram. He loved Madeline, too, in bis way, and, I do not doubt, meant to make her bappy Joe. was in professional life had made a Dromi9ing start, and we all thought he was destin ed to take a commanding place. When I look back npon ft' he SBtrjess of nji descent'appalls me: The convivial haniY whiph a first manifested Itaeirin occa sional nights of 'gayety, 'soon 'becaftie unmanageable. His business ' suffered from neglect.. ( The blear look and blas'J phemous speech of the drunkard sneak ed into the place of gallant and high minded Joe. Bertram and he must once have been all that to have awakened love in a heart of gold like Madeline's. To look at her placid face' now you would hardly believe .'there , was a time when she would have accepted the martyrdom of fire for Joe Bertram' sake for her love's sake ; hut I tell you that that love was long the, imperious, and dominating! tjassionot ier 'WeM' .UjC"- '- f "I do not suppose that .this part of her story is out of the common expefi ence of women; but Madeline's was. a love that stopped ' at nothing short of crime. Not Joe s degradation quench ed it; not her loss of respect for him weakened It; not death itself was pow erful enough to lay it in the dust- Through degradation, through pity for bis fall, through the black shadow of shameful death, it mounted,' a steadfast flame ; and it has shone nndimrhed opon her pathway during all her solitary years. "She loved Joe theB. She loves him now. Pbe win never cease to love Dim "But how bravely , she has lived! While her grief over poor Joe's death was sorest, , ,tnei died ine nusoana who bad been tenderly attached to her strangely disappeared, and two other children bad been' left helpless bat for Madeline Aunt Madeline, as everybody had called ber 6ince that time. She bad given tbem more than a mother's solid tnde and care, and all a .mother's love. She worked for tbem, reared them, edu cated them. Now both are married, and their children are daily taught to ask God's blessing on the dear saint who waits, but not in idleness, for the Voice of Mercy to proclaim the end of earthly love and duty. Her home is musical with tbe romp and laughter of happy children : the house cat pnrs in sleek con tent; and tbeacent of fl iwers pervades tbe r(oms where peace broods and Mad eline s gracious presence reigns " - In the soft sammer afternoon she sits and dreams , The little old-fashioned locket, in which Je .Bertram's picture has Iain for thirty' years, hangs on ber bosom. . ; , Little Daisy cornea leaping into the room. .
