From the same direction taken by Taylor, but evidently coming oat of u narrow valley bearing off to the left, ap peared a white man with n gun on his shcw'.dor. Ho was in viow when half a mill) from camp, aud long before he reached it all the men were watching his approach. He was one of the four renegades, and this was the visit Harkins lmd heard them plotting to make. The captain, Harkius aud Joe know this, but none of the others knew that tho girl Lizzio was 'in camp, she haring kept herself secret ed in the wagon. The man continued to advance at a leisurely pace, and by and by lie was near enough to th& group to cull out: / B: ' r ! ijlr <0 -■ A / / . * m % w, '%/<( r <5>. / *>«• v-*.l ■'IFTio arc uouf" "Howdy, strangers! I reckon 1 kin come in, being us 1 ain't a hostile In dian." The captain returned his salutation, and the renegade came to a halt in the camp, looked keenly around him and continued: "Come after gold, I reckon, ani^ from the looks o' things you've been fooling away your time fur a hull week. In course you was green and didn't know or you wouldn't hev stopped here two hours." "What's the matter of this placer queried the captain. "Nnthitt, so fur's grass and water goes, but if yon want gold yon must go whar it is. Leastwise, the rest of ns hev had to." "And where is that?" "A matter of twelve miles up the val ley. Thar's plenty up tbar to be had fur the digging, and only a small party has got onto it yet. Never saw snch richness afore. 1 believe ye kin almost load oue o' them wagons in a month." There were murmurs of admiration and exclamations of astonishment from the men. "1 belong to the party up thar," con tinued tho stranger, "but 1 don't go much on digging out the stuff. Rather bo moving around, yon know. I kin guarantee that the boys will welcome ye if ye want to come. Thar's enough fur all." "It is very generous indeed of yon," replied the captain, gold, and of course we must take advan tage of your offer." "Aye! that we must," shouted the men. "What brought me ont this morning, at least this way," observed the man as ho carefully noted everything in camp, "was a calamity. One of tho boys up thar brought his gal out with him. The Injuns got arter ns and skeart her clean crazy. Since that time she's bin tryin to run away, imagining that the reds were arter her scalp. She got off last night and might hev cum this way." "That's awful!" sighed Harkins. "I've got n gal of my own down in the wagon there, aud I'd rather see her dead than We came for crazy, "The wolves vvould be likely to pull her down last night," mused Joe. "Two or three big fellows were around camp just before daylight." "So ye've got a gal o' your own?" queried the man of Harkins in tones whicl),Lethtyed doubt. "Oh. Bess!" called the latter in reply, j and the* girl put her head out of the wagon and asked what was wanted. "Waal, i'll hev to look further," said the renegade as he turned away. "Poor gal! How I pity lier! And when will ye be ready to move up the valley to the gold fields?" "Today perhaps," answered the cap tain '•Better uot lose any time, as thar will bo h rush in yere from all directions, Bo long to ye." When he had cleared the camp Har kins told his story aud the man's object Was made plain. Harkins did not keep buck the secret of tlie cave, but told it just as be ba.l received it und suggested that iu case the coulents could be found there should be an equal division. "They want us to mo\y up the vaUey in order to let them out," explained the captain. "Therefore our plufi will be to remain where we are until we know what there is in the story. They haven't found the cave yet and there is a chance of onr coming in first. We shall cer tainly do some looking for it. We'll let that chap get well out of sight and then go on a still hunt." Two hours later the captain, Harkins and a man named Androws set out in company under the guidance of the sec ond to seek the canyon and tho cave. While they are searching let us see what befell Taylor, who had made a temporary camp in the small valley. When ho came to think it over he condemned himself for having acted so rashly. He was now alono and outlaw ed. Should he succeed in finding the gold how was he to bring it away? He was and would bo in constant danger from the Indians, and if given a team and tho gold loaded up for him there was not one chance in a hundred of his driving safely back to civilization. While he coveted all he realized that he must be content with a share in order to get any at all. "If 1 should go back and tell 'em of tho cave it would make 'em feel all right," he soliloquized as he looked up ut the rugged sides of the valley. "FoolI fool!" he exclaimed after a moment; "hasn't Harkins already told them of it as the reason why I sought bis life? All know it and all will divide and leave me out in the cold! I'm the biggest fool on earth!" "1 quite agree with ye!" said a voice not five feet away, and Taylor sprang up to find the renegade who had visited the camp below standing almost over him. "Saw yer hosses' tracks leadinin yere, ye know," said the renegade in expla nation. "Rather curus to find a white man prowling around alone in this ken try. Yer scalp must be nailed on or ye wouldn't cjiance it this way." "Who are you?" asked Taylor as soon as he had recovered from his surprise. "The same question to ye, and what is it about a cave of gold and dividing up?" Here was help. If the man belonged to a party the gold might yet be se cured. He was a hard looking customer —one who would not scruple at auy thing. "Sit down," said Taylor as he made himself comfortable. "I came here with a party camped two or three miles be low. They came to prospect for gold, but 1 came to look for a cave already tilled with it. They sort o' suspected me, and because 1 wouldn't divide they drove me out of camp this morning." "Whar did ye hear of that cave?" "From an old hunter named Saun ders." "Who used to chum with a pard named Bridgers?" "Exactly." "Waal, I'm yere fur the same pur pose.' What 1 got was secondhand from old Bridgers, but it looks straight 'null. There's four of us in the party and we've got ridin horses and a team." "That's the checker!" exclaimed Tay lor us he brought his fist down on the grass. "1 want to join you." "And ye know just whar that cave is?" "1 believe 1 can walk to it in the night." "Suppose we should hev a row with the people camped below?" "I'll do my share of shooting. There's two or three of 'em who will get a bul let the first time I have a chance to cov er 'em." t "Come on. I guess tho boys will take ye in under the sarcumstances. Haven't seen nnthin of a gal wanderin around yere, 1 suppose?" "No." "Waal, saddle up." An hour later Taylor was in the camp cf the outlaws. When the men learned that ho had been driven out of the camp belotv and that ho had received minute particulars regarding Hie locality of tho cave of gold they extended him a warm welcome. "Whar do ye make it out to be?" asked Bob, the leader. "Five miles the other side of the wagon train." "No!" "That's what the hunter said—five miles to the left of the peak." "And this isn't the canyon?" "It can't be. It's below that camp. I'll stake my life on it." "Then, doggono it, we've bin wrong all the time. We located this as the place. If it's below tho camp then we don't keer a button whether they move or not, though they'll likely be going up the valley today. We'd better hitch up and be going." CHAPTER XVIIL j Jl if JL iSfeJ* r c f * m n ifl A , The next three days were full of strange events: The party which set j out from the wagon trnjn to hunt for : the canyon were certain that the one near which the renegades had encamped was the place they were looking for. Taylor and one of the renegades pros 1 ] j "So you're got gold tn the tcnyanP' pected down the valley and found a .anyou which Taylor was sure con tained the cave and its treasure. Both parties were working in the dark, tmt the w:\gonmen had the advantage. They know the renegades for what they were, and also discovered that Taylor had joined them. Some of the men were for attacking them and wiping out the whole live to revenge the murder of the emigrant and his wife, but this the cap tain would not approve. He would lose a man or two at least, even if he won a great victory, and he did not forget that the Indians might make their presence known at any moment. At the second visit paid the canyon above the renegades the wagonmen I>enetrated far enough to be certain that this was the one described by Saunders. They would have investigated still closer but for the approach of a storm, which made them auxious to reach the shelter of camp. Strangely enough, the other party was just as firmly convinced that the other canyon was the right one, and on the torenoon of the third day it was decided that they should move. Bob had told a dg story to get the other party off up .ho valley, and as they had not moved .he renegades did not know what to nako of it. He could not see why they should question his veracity, but Taylor /mule the situation plain when he said: " Harkins has no doubt told them of the cave, and they are making a still uunt for it. Depend upon it, he has given the secret away, and they'll divide ip the stuff if they find it." It was decided to hitch up and move lown the vallby at once. It would not lo for Taylor to be seen, and he was to lide away in the wagon. Bob cooked ap what ho thought a very plausiblb yarn, and about noon Joe, who happened to be looking up the valley, saw the wagon a mile away. The rescued girl ; was at onco hidden from sight und the seven men in the camp quietly mado ready to meet an attack. j The wagon came on, three of the rene-J gades riding their horses nnd the fourth | driving, while the horses of the latter and the one belonging to Taylor fol lowed the wagon. The vehicle could have passed the camp by fifty yards, but it drove up and halted within ten, and Bob called ont: "Hello! to all of ye again. I reck oned ye'd be up at the diggings by this time, but ye don't seem to keer fur gold. 1 come out to guide these boys, who hev made their pile und are now headed for Brule. Didn't see auything of the lost gal yet?" The captain being absent with a party, Joe took it upon himself to answer. "We shall probably move this after uoon. The wagons had to be overhauled and fixed. So you've got gold in the wagon?" "Gold 'miff to bny half of Dakota, my friend. Sorry tve can't let ye see it, but it's kivered up fur the journey. Meet any luck yet?" "Only so so. Where did you get that bay horse?" "I was jist goin to ask ye if ye had ever seen him afore. We met a chap named Taylor a couple of days ago, who was headed for the mines. Ho al lowed he didn't need his Loss any long er, und 1 bought the beast for fifty dol lars." "Yes, that is Taylor's horse, and 1 was wondering hew you came by him. Was Taylor all right?" "Seemed to be as port as a cat. So ye are going away today?" "That's what we expect." "Waal, I'm goin on with tho boys fur about twenty mile and 1 may see you as I cum back. Good luck and goodby." The little party moved off down tho valley, every renegade 'chuckling with satisfaction, aud they were soon omt of sight. Half an hour later the captaiu and his party returned and dinner was quickly dispatched and the teams har nessed for a move. By three o'clock a new camp had been formed in tlie mouth of the canyon. The wagons were rnn in out of sight, a wall of rock was piled up as a screen and a defense, und in a little cave were found water and grass for the horses for the time being. It was well that they had moved with promptness and made things secure. Before sunset the rain descended in such torrents that the main valley was almost a river. A good sized stream swept down the bed of the canyon and out into the valley, and within an hour the foot prints of the horses and the tracks of the wagons had been obliterated. Thu storm lasted half the night, causing great discomfort in the camp, but the next day was not three hours old when everybody was mado to realize that the storm was his salvation. Some of tho men were still eating their breakfast when Joe, who had been down to tho mouth of the canyon for a look around, returned and said: "Injuns till you can't rest!" "Where? Where?" called half a dozen men. "In the valley. A band of at least fif ty has just gone tearing by." The fire was burning clear and mak ing no smoke, although it had been built against the wall of the canyon, m a place where the smoko would go filter ing up among the trees. Every man was ordered down to the wall, and they reached it in time to see the last of the Indian band disappear up the valley. "What's your opinion?" asked the cap taiu of Joe as they stood together, tContinued Tomorrow. | Cummings the photogrupner, 302 Market street. _ ply Falling Into a Good Thing if you'll fall into our way of thinking, if you eat hearty, your stomnch distressei you.

IX« Figures It Out Su Scientifically That Cannot Ones* Who Will He riartc«! ills Analysts Is Hit lure renting, but We Will Not llet V« It. ISpccial Correspondence.] N r.w Yolk, Oct. C.—Who will b< elected president? That is the questio of questions. 'Tis only a month till tin answer will be given by the people them selves. But we Americans do not like to wait till a thing is settled. We want to take botlatino: and events by the fore lock, shake them savagely aud compel them to yield to our eager curiosity before they are ready to do so. In this letter I am not going to proph esy. Had experience has taught me the futility of prophecy in politics. Yon have heard of tho Virginia Herman who was induced to put up all his savings to malte a "sure thing" of his candidacy for some petty office, and of his ejacula tion when the votes w the other fellow hud nn ot rwhelmiug majority. "Polidicks vos one son of a guti," said he, aud he was right. One of tho best pieces of advice I ever bad aud h have had a great deal—was from an old newspaper friend, who said. "Don't prophesy: write facts." So I don't wish to become prophetic as to the presidential election. I do wish to give you such facts or supposed facts as I have been able to catch up with at the headquarters of the two national committees. couuted nnd # I have been nround these headquarters, 0 ff and ou, for ftix weeks, meeting mau ; agent, their lieutenants and distinguished visitors from all purls of tho country, j have lived iu a political atmosphere j in two political atmospheres—till I think I don't know anything ut all about it. | Having progressed fur enough to con clude that personally I know nothing, there is a great probability of my being of some service to tho reader, who would like to have answer to tho query with which I begin this letter, for in my own ignorauco I shall of necessity fall back upon the information furnished by men whose business it is to know. Let me say at the outset that it is pre cious little I caro who wins in Novem ber. You may be n Republican, dear reuder, or a Democrat. 1 am neither. You may bo a Populist, or a Pruhibi tionist, or something else. 1 ain't. I'm nothing—nothing buta newspaper writer, an observer, a watcher aud listener, a student of men and events. 1 am not even a Mugwump, uor an Independent. I don't vote—live in Washington and can't, and wouldn't if I lived anywhere else und could. Why? No matter. Tin point is that 1 am unprejudiced, fancy free and truthful according to my lights. !3o if I figuro things out the way yon don't want them figured out, keep your temper. My aim is to give you the essence of all the information which I have been able to gather among the politicians and 1 must be permitted to do so in my own way. without fear of giving offenst or hope of winning favor. If you don'i relish frankness about the political situ ation, you will do well to drop this let ter right here. It is an exceedingly complex situation which we now have in the politica world. The result of tho preeidentin election hangs upon a dozen states—no' upon two or three. As the manage/ say, "There is fighting all along tbi line." You will not be ablo to tell win. has been elected when you hear fron New York nnd Indiana. You tvill have to whit until the back counties in Wt*«i Virginia, Alabama, Wisconsin, IUiuoi Nebrasku and many states besides an reported. It is a situation full of doubt and pregnant of surprises. Tlio result may indeed be such as to elect ono of the other candidate by on overwhelming mujority in tho electoral college, but the smartest men in both camps doubt this nnil look for a close and driving finish. doubt to a certuin extent balance one another, and the best analysis of the field 1 havo yet seen brings out three probabilities ill the following order: First— If Cleveland carries New York he will almost certainly 5vin. Second—If Harrison carries New York he probably will win. Third—Third party success in some western and Southern states will throw the election into the house of represent atives. This gives Cleveland the best of it on probabilities, you say. Yes, it does. It gives him two chances to Harrison's one. He has an even chance with Harrison in the electoral college, and he has a chance which Harrison hasn't—to be elected by the house of representatives, Bitting down vvith paper and pencil, using the most trustworthy information and the best judgment to be had, one can make a detailed table of probabilities as follows: In fact the ueyv elements of SURE FOR CLEVELAND.

Let us now discuss the states which are here given as surely for Cleveland. There can be no tfucsticm as to any of 4M them, with the possible exception of Florida. New Jersey and Virginia. In Florida the Democratic majority is not large, and the third party movement is disturbing the political waters there a good deal. Still the state is conceded to Cleveland by Republicans, though the margin may be narrow. In New Jersey the light is always spirited, aud even bitter, but it invariably turns up with u Democratic majority, and there are not many Republicans who have any hope that it will now change its record. Virginia is this year generally classed ns doubtful, hut I hare been through the state, and I can see no hope for Harri son there. The five votes given to Cleveland in Michigan are to come from the new sys tem of choosing electors by congres sional districts. Don Dickinson claim, nine of the fourteen for Cleveland. Con servative figures givo him five sure, with a probabilit - of two more, An analysis of the vote given ns safely Harrison shows three points which may need explanation, Tho Democrats claim Iowa as doubtful, and also Massachu setts aud New Hampshire. My infor mation is to tho effect that thero is no doubt in any of these states. Boies has twice been elected governor of Iowa, but bis greatest vote 1ms never equaled the vote which Harrison received in 1888. Tho Republicans have a reserve strength there which they will bring out, and they should carry the state by about 10,000. In Massachusetts tho two elections of young Russell to the governorship have encouraged tho Democrats to think they may carry tho stato in a presidential year. But each time that Russell has won tho Republicans have curried the stato on other offices, and they have an immense reserve vote which they will bring out this year. New Hampshire is a good deal hko New Jersey. The vote is close, but tho majority continues pretty safely ou one side. Now wo come to the most interesting feature of our survey—the doubtful states. What a campaign it is, witii two-iifths of tho entire electoral vote in doubt! Again applying (he liest information and judgment which I can find at the two national headquurters, I make an other table of probabilities: DOUBTFUL VOTES PROBABLY FOR— BAftnnoH. t C LET ELAND.

P 4 24 10 Total 4 as 233 US 51 itr M 131 C3 1ST f 3 r a These four are, in my judgment, th most doubtful states in the Union ut tin coming election. It will be seen that 1 Cleveland can carry New Y ork bis suc cess will be tdlerably well assured. That, on the above showing, would give him a margin of ten votes and enable him to lose Connecticut or West Virginu and the two votes from Michigan. Hu. rison, on tho other hand, would, on the above showing, have but one vote to spare. What is New York likely to do? 1 haven't as yet formed an opinion. To day the chances uppear to be evenly matched. In a week or two I may have something to tell you about New York and the other doubtful state«. Indiana is doubtful, too, and with these elements of uncertainty and the many other* which I havo mentioned it would b< foolish for any one to entertain confi deuce os to any particular result. As I havo said, the chances appear to be about even between Harrison and Cleveland in the electoral college. But Cleveland has an advantage in that he will surely win if the election lie thrown into tho house. The chances of this are not at all remote. Alabama, Kansas. Nebraska, Colorado, North Dakota. South Dakota, Minnesota nnd Nevadu are states which may go for Weaver and together they cast fifty-three votes Suppose Cleveland were to carry all the states which 1 have given hint, with New York, but losing Alabama, be would fall short of a majority. If he were to carry all the other states rounted for him excepting Indiana, nnd then carried New York, he would still fail of election. If he carried all tho others, with New York and Indiana, but lost Connecticut and West Virginia, be would have to go to the house for his seat. If Harrison carried New York, along with all the other states given him, but lost one of the Dakotas, Colorado, Kansas or Minnesota, any one of these states could deprive him of a majority. There are many combinations in which both candidates would fail of success in the college—so many tlint this result is easily within the range of the probable. And should tho election of both presi dent and vice president go to congress the Democratic house would elect Cleve land and the Republican senate would elect Reid. That would be a curious re suit, would it not? Walter Wellman. Catar rh ely»s ? CREAM BALM ML IAY FEVER ^ 3Ê Cleanses the Nasal Passages. Allays Pain and In ttammatiou.
