Big Bear was an Institution in Ty
ler. For flvo years he had been as
much a part of Doctor Wharton's
household as the watch dog, the fam
ily horse, or the chickens. In fact,
Big Bear spent most of his time with
these domesticated pets. Ho slept up
stairs in the barn In winter, under a
shady tree in the garden In summer
and was a truBty sentinel, a swift
obliging mesBonger and the loyal and
devoted adherent of the dootor and
his little family, especially pretty
Clarlbel, Just budding into perfect
"He's like some faithful dog," re
marked a townsman to the town mar
shal. "He Is certainly 'a good Indiana,'"
was the hearty reply "never drinks
or fights, makes me no trouble. In
fact, when some of the half breeds
float Into town and try to get Into a
rumpus, he quietly persuades them to
go on their nay."
"Well, he ought to feel grateful to
wards Wharton. Poor old Doc!
Times haven't been going any too
good with him of late."
"I hear that. The family Is poor,
they say. That bright girl of his ha3
been compelled to go clerking In a
store to keep the pot boiling, I
learn. Well, that shows she Is made
of the right stuff."
"Especially when she might have
married half a million with that
grandson of old Reuben Walte."
"Mistake that's just what she
couldn't do. The old mUer broke up
the match and Ellis Walte, his grand
son, has nothing of his own. The old
man threatened to disinherit him If
he married. The young fellow was
of the right sort. He Just packed up
his duds and left home. He's work
ing somewhere west of here as a
station agent. Some day he'll come
back and claim his bride.
"Where did the doctor run across
Big Bear, anyway?" inquired the
"Over across the divide. It seems
that the old chief had a wild son who
They Had a Terrible Fight,
got desperate and vicious after the
Indian agents got about all the land
they had away from them. He had
a terrible fight with some gamblers
and killed two of them. They strung
him up. The doctor found a mere
spark of life In him after they had
cut him down where the old chief
was mourning him. Secretly the doc
tor revived him. He got safely out
of the district and to an Indian school.
He developed into a remarkably
bright fellow. He is studying in
Paris now and a credit to his old fa
ther." "The old man don't seem to have
much stir about him in the Indian
fighting way."
"He had once, and that is a strange
story. Doctor Wharton told me about
It. It seems that when the son was
Bhlpped away secretly the chief gave
him a great satchel filled with gold.
Then he went to the doctor. 'I make
you rich,' he Bald. 'I have a mine
all gold. You save my son I not
forget.' Well, In about a week back
comes Big Bear. He had no gold.
He was all bruised and beaten up.
There was a great gash In his skull.
All his old fire was gone. It ap
peared that he had met his bitterest
enemy, one Lone Wolf. They had a
terrible fight. The skull blow had af
fected the brain of Big Bear. He
seemed to have forgotten about hlB
mine. Like a faithful dog he took up
his home with the doctor and has
been with him evr since."
The story passed out of the mind of
the marshal almost Immediately for
he had a busy day before him the
one following. A wild west show was
coming to town and the experienced
official knew that this event was like
ly to call in all the cowboys and
rougher element of the district for a
characteristic good time.
.There was to be a procession and
It came about with a band of muslo
In the lead, then a dozen mounted
cowboys and half that number of real
Indians. The sight was only mod
erately attractive to the townspeople,
for cowboys and Indiana fn no no-
Atj to them.
On the present occasion, however,
there was an Incident added not an
ticipated and more tragic and sensa
tional than the fiercest play episode
on the. program.
Big Bear had sat on a railing like
others casually reviewing the proces
sion. Of a sudden as a big brawny
brave mounted on a muBtang came
Into view, there rang from his usually
placid lips a hair-raising yell:
"Lone Wolf!"
"Hold him!"
"He's gone mad!"
It seemed as though in a flash some
stirring impulse had reawakened in
the chief all the long dormant feroc
ity of his nature.
Electrified, he sprang to his feet.
An ear-splitting war whoop left his
lips. Then like a bloodhound he
reached the middle of the street In
four tremendous bounds.
With a spring he landed against
the painted brave on the mustang.
He tore him from tho saddle. Botn
fell to the street There, rolling over
and over In a frightful flst battle, they
seemed like two rabid wolves, Intent
only in ending a struggle of desper
ate strife and hatred In death.
Big Bear was foaming at the mouth,
his eyes glared with fury. His enemy
was armed, however, and he was not.
At his belt the show Indian carried a
short stone headed bludgeon. He
managed to froe one hand. The mur
derous weapon cut through the air
and Big Bear sank back with a groan,
his head and face deluged with blood.
His assailant, grim, gruff, taciturn,
refused to make any explanation. The
marshal had to admit that Big Bear
was the first assailant. The show
people of course defended their mem
ber. "It must have been a sudden fit of
frenzy," said Doctor Wharton, but
two days later, after the show had
passed on to another town, he was
further startled and troubled.
Big Bear, under his surgical charge,
had disappeared In the night.
Then a week later he reappeared
There was a lively new Intelligence
In his face. Four rangers, rifle armed,
guarded the closed wagon in which
he rode.
"Ugh, good doctor!" he cried ex
ultingly, as he drove up to the house
of the physician. "No more trouble
for little Caribel and gold for you,
my friend gold! gold!"
"Strange, wasn't it?" the next day
spoke tho marshal to a friend.
"About Big Bear?" was the response.
"Why, it's like a romance. They say
he has come back with whole bricks
of gold."
"Pretty near that, and more In
"How was It, marshal I haven't
heard the whole story?"
"Why, It seems that the Indian he
attacked beat and robbed him at the
time his wits left him. Big Bear rec
ognized him in the procession. The
second blow knocked Big Bear xigkt
ngaln. He remembered all the past
suddenly his forgotten gold mine.
Now he will provide well for the good
old doctor, and as to pretty Clarlbel,
why, she will have more money than
miserly old Walte now."
"And there will be a wedding?"
"That, sure!" nodded the marshal
with great unction and approval.

Explanation of Condition With Which
All Athletes Must Be Thor
oughly Familiar.
The probable explanation of
' sec-
ond wind" is as follows:
In tho deep breathing of an athletic
person taking moderate exercise at
sea level, lack of oxygen plays no
part. The effect is wholly due to an
Increased production of carbonic acid
stimulating the respiratory center,
which responds proportionately. On
very violent exertion at sea level, how
ever, and on even moderate exertion
at a great altitude, the oxygen supply
to the tissues of the body is temporar
ily insufficient Substances other than
carbonic acid, such as lactic acid,
are produced, and when these sub
stances reach the respiratory center
by the way of the blood, they excite It
to such activity that one overbreathes.
That Is, the violent panting ventilates
the carbonic acid out of the blood
more rapidly than the body Is produc
ing it. The substances which thus
overstimulate the respiratory center
are not volatile and cannot be given
off by way of the lungs, but they ap
pear to be rather rapidly oxidized in
the blood. When the carbonic acid has
been considerably diminished a part
of the stimulus to the respiratory cen
ter is removed, so that one can
breathe more moderately; that 1b, one
gets his "second wind." When the ex
ertion stops, the production of the
stimulating substances ceases, and the
quantity of carbonic acid in the blood
having been reduced below the amount
necessary to stimulate the respiratory
center, one falls into a period of
apnoea, followed by Cheyno-Stokes
breathing, like an engine with a sen
sitive governor and no fly-wheel.
Breathing oxygen under these condi
tions hastens the combustion of the
acid substances which have accumu
lated in the blood.
No More Smockod Farmers.
The Pall Mall Gazette Is informed,
on the authority of two light-hearted
gentlemen who tried, that it needs a
good deal of oourage to walk through
a country town In a smock-frock. In
deed, it proved almost Impossible to
obtain the garment itself, even In
"seedy Sussex." The smocked country
man exists no longer save on tho
stage. Moro's th pity! A well-made

RIDGE. "What in the world Is Cloora up to
now, I wonder?"
"From her mysterious secrecy, with
any other girl I would suspect a tryBt
with some romantic lover."
"That doesn't fit Cleora at all," dis
sented May Delmar. "Her practical
independent wnys do not at all suit
tho young men of the neighborhood
and their Idle purposeless lives do not
appeal to her. No, although she would
give us no inkling of her purpose In
speeding to parts unknown in her fa
ther's automobile and she dressed In
her very oldest duds, wo may count
on it, I think, that she Is off on one of
her wild philanthropic expeditions."
Cleora Maiden had Just flashed by
in the machine. She was Indeed ar
ranged ns if bound for a working bee,
rather than any social pleasure func
tion. The machine had seen Its best
days. It reminded thoughtful earnest
Cleora of the old home and its de
cayed condition. Her father owned
land, but most of It in litigation.
Ready money wns at present a rarity
with the old Judge.
Once he had hinted to his mother
less daughter that her girl friends
were one after the other making what
he called "good matches." There
were many young men scions of very
wealthy families in the district.
Cleora had shaken her head soberly
at this allusion.
"Father, we do not need wealth to
be happy," she declared. "I am go
ing to love you and you only as long
as you are here to care for."
The Judge sighed, considering that
the world's richest gifts were all too
poor for his cherished darling, but he
recognized the true nobleness of her
nature In devoting her life to kindly
deeds in behalf of the poor in the
He had seen her start out that
morning with a full basket. The Judge
asked no questions, but knew that

he wondered, but did not seek to close
ly question her.
Judge Maiden opened his eyes to
their widest when at dusk that eve
ning the automobile drove Into the
yard, and he looked it over and then
turned a critical challenging glance
upon his daughter.
Her hair was disordered, her clothes
dusty and torn in places. The ma

looked as though it naa Deen usea
ror a moving van.
I'm tired and hungry," announced
Cleora, as she drove tho machine to
I the garage. "I've been working hard
nil day long."
"You look It," observed the Judge.
"What you been doing with the ma
chine moving a house?"
I "Pretty nearly," smiled Cloora.
"Now don't get grumpy, father. When
you hear my story you will be quite
as Interested and sympathetic as my
self. You know I Inherit all my benev
olence from you."
"Well, let us hear what you have
been up to this time," he suggested.
"There's a half blind old man and
his feeble wife, the Maltlands, over
noar Elberson," said Cleora,
"Yes, I've heard of them. Bought
some property from that scoundrel
Rlngold, who has put a cloud on the
title of one-half the land I own In
the township," observed the Judge,
flaring up wrathlly.
"Their ion, Dr. Paul Maltland,
bought It," corrected Cleora. "It
seems he knew before he went away
that he had been swindled by Mr.
Rlngold, Just as you were, but he
never dreamed that the old folks
would be disturbed until his return.
About a week ago, however, the real
owner of the land served notice on
the old people to vacate. I learned of
it yesterday and arranged to assist
them In finding new quarters until
their son came back. There were
some household treasures they par
ticularly cherished and I took those in
the automobile."
"I'd like to catch hold of that
Blncoldl" remarked tba fedva, an oM

grievance vividly revived. "It Isn't
what he beat me out of In real
money it's tho complications he
made that have obscured tho title to
my land so I can't legally sell it until
the rocords are cleaned up."
"From what old Mr. and Mrs. Malt
land say," spoko Cleora, "their son
has been trying to find Mr. ningold."
So the incident passed by for tho
time being. Cleora was very much In
terested in tho old couple she had as
sisted. They had enough money to
carry themselves along, but they were
slow and fearful as to making any
mistake In their movements. In fact,
within tho week Cleora. had become
a guardian, to whom they deferred in
all their plans.
The Judge grumbled a little over the
condition of tho automobile, but he
did not try to deter Cleora from con
tinuing her visits to tho old people.
He looked nskanco, however, when his
daughter became enthusiastic in tell
ing what a fine portrait sho had seen
of tho absent doctor and what a loyal
liberal son he had been to his aged
"I suppose Doctor Maltland Is pret
ty poor," remarked the Judge guard
edly. "Maybe his Investment In that
house and lot took all he had in tho
"I don't know J hope not," replied
The judge was not at all crafty,
but he waB naturally solicitous as to
the future welfare of his only child.
He brought It around so that young
Sidney Talcott, who was heir pre
sumptive to quite an estate and al
ways a devoted follower of Cleora,
came once more Into the lists.
It was a fair moonlit evening when
young Taicoit mustered up courage
to propose to Cleora. She treated
him as If she was a kindly sister, told
him he had hotter go back to tho
fiancee he had quarried with and sent
him away with a lot of good advice.
After he had gono Cleora strolled
across the verdant space aligning the
home grounds. A man's figure came
swiftly across her path. He halted to
lift his hat courteously and Inquire.
"Can you direct me to the home of
Judge Maiden?"
"It Is right at hand," explained
Cleora and then her heart fluttered,
for she at once identified the original
of the picture Mr. and Mrs. Maltland
had shown her of their son.
"I wish to see the Judge," explained
the stranger. "Perhaps " he paused,
a quick flicker came into his eyes.
"I am his daughter," said Cleora.
His hand reached out to clasp her
own. There came Into his face an
eager glad expression. She could feel
his pulses heighten.
"I cannot find words to thank you"
his voice was husky and tremulous.
"You have done so much for my fa
ther and mother. And I It is pleas
ant to know that I may partly repay
your goodness. I have some glad
news for your father."
Good news, Indeed! The young
doctor had run down the swindler,
Rlngold. He had not only forced
what restitution could be made as to
his own property, but had compelled
the execution of documents that would
clear up the clouded titles on the
Judge's real estate,
"An admirable young man!" an

And at the end of a week old Mrs.
