t How An Old Prospectors Dream Was Realized
r
Tom Jenkins ran has hand through
the gold that lay heaped on the floor
of the shaft Seems to me BIlly he
t aid slowly that hopin to find 1t is
c l betern fndin i
r Dui gleams of h from a smoky
lantern fell athwart the face of the old
miner rugged homely deep furrowed
by time and hardships and offering a
marked contrast indeed to the hand
some patrician features of Billy Bai
ley his junior partner
FInd in Billy means quittn Its
an end to the wants an privations Ie
knowed for nigh 2G year But same
how Ive come to Ukc these ftm ole
mountains an the sing in of the pines
an the river Theyve growe like
friends an rm never lonesome mong
em Listen You can hear em now
Maybe its the last time theyU ever
sing for me
Were going back to civilization
continued rom unheeding the others
lack of sympathy with his reminiscent
mood An that means separation I
know you like me Billy A feler
couidnt want a better partner than
youve been for the two year Ive
knowed ye But with yer eddicaton
blood ambI
an yer young an yer
tons jQu aint my kind in cvlzaton
Ve cant be the same down there I
couldnt expect i But I think a pow
erful deal of you Billy 1
Oh come Tom broke in his com
panion impatient youre in the
dumps tonight Take a drink and brace
np Should think youd look on the
bright side ot things now Weve
worked hard and starved in these
cursed wilds for gold until at last
weve got i Think of the ciys ten
thousand pleasures that this stake can
buy for us Teres no life in these
damne solitudes Its here in the
crowded streets and i can all be ours
when weve got such a godthe god of
goldto see us through
Billy laughed gloatingly in anticipa
tion Then once more he fixed his eyes
with a glittering intensity on the yel
low heap which meant for him all that
nature life can mean to a selfish lovelac
But it aint fer me persisted Tom
Im past them things I i want for
the hope of fndin the old woman down
there in Frisco an makin her comfort
A able Id stay I dont care fer the
I ld at alL rye found it an my
r lmngerln fel it is satisfied
Billy made no answer He had long
since become resigned to the diversity
of their taste and tonight he was in
no mood for argument He got out
some materials and began to repair a
rent in his eflat Tom rose presently
and dumped the nugget into a gunny
sack Then he arranged his blankets
for the night
Put it away safely Billy he said
jocularly were already on the edge
of ivlz3 on an must learn to be
perlc ler
Ill look l after i never fear said
the other shortly good night
Billy finished his task but his mind
was still busy with thoughts of the
future He rose and stepped out into
the nigh At hi fee the turbulent
river rushed blacy along its foam
rests gleaming like dull silver In the
clpar starlight Behind him towered
in silent mystery the rugged wooded
mountains The air was heavy with
the breath of the pines But Billy aw
none of the beauty of the night The
mountains awakened memories of
hardships and hopelessness the rIver
was only a highway to cvizator
He lit his pipe and began to pace up
and down the shel ing shore
There was none of the stuff of which
heroes are made in Billy Baileys com
position Had the fates seen fit to con
tinue their kindly begiIDn haou1d
probably have deveoped into one of
the horde of hi d sepulchrcs that I
so largely make up what the word is I
pleased to term the respectable of hu I
manit those wh observe the conven t
tions to the letter indulge every desire i
wth a studid care that wins the ap
proval of mei and dying are respect
t tully buried and speedily forgotten On
e contrary fate had preferred giving I
r Billy a chance to prove his mettle HIs
college career cut short by the mel
ing away of his fathers fortune he I
awoke onp morning te fnd himself face
to face with the world his wits his I
only capital I
He remembered tonight his struggle
to maintain his social position the
slights heaped upon him by erstwhile
boon the
companions gradual sinking
away of hope until with starvation
staring him in the face he had shipped
in a vessel bound round the Horn
On his lips were curses for the friends
who had failed him in his heart a re
solve some day to retaliate He re
called his hardships on the western
frontier his final falling in with old
Tom Jennings and the hopeless search
for gold until a week ago when the
gravel of a driedup mOntain stream
unexpectedly yielded them their for
tune and ended for him the helon
earth existence in these solitudes His
future course was plain Mercilessly
he would engagen the war for wealth
His hErt must know but one love
the love of gold
And the stale I wasnot so much
after all I he only had Toms share
too The thought started him and I I
he looked furtively about
furtvely as though
already under surveillance Well why
not What was Tom to him now I I
The old man cared nothing for gold
he had sajd as much Why not begin
the tacIt of wealthgathering tonIght
and double his fortune by a single
cup fhe skIff was all ready for the
morrows journey down the river He I
rver
could easily reach North Fork by day jl
lght and mie of distance would lie j
between hi l and Tom before the latter I
Quld make the trip across the almost I
Iv impassable mountain trail He weakened
I
ened for a moment as he thought of
Toms almost motherly solicitude of I
how throughout their wanderings the
bighearted miner had bore the brunt
of the struggle Even when the treas
ure was discovered the old mans first
words were Im glad for your sake
Billy Then he asked himself if he
too was growing sentimental and to
night ofbattle of all night on the ver eve I
oflate I I
He walked back into the house Tom
was fat aSleep The flickering light
of the lantern fell aslant the corner
where he lay his powerful form half
swathed In the tattered blankets his
brawny arms thrown above his head
The face from which sleep seemed to
have smoothed away the deep fUr
rows mirrored the rugged honesty of
his heart But the touching picture
mcnt nothing to Billy who watched
the sleeper for an instant and then
proceeded to put his cowardlJ scheme
into effect I was but the work of a
few minutes to gather together the
things necessary for the short journey
down the river and to secure the treasure
ure for safe transportation There
was a look of cunning triumph on his
face as he completed his preparations
He was thinking of the surprise await
ing Tom who had been fool enough
to believe in human friendship
He nade a cautious step toward the
door of the shack when a slight noise
ral or fancied caused him to glanc
back over his shoulder The next in
stant the bag of gold crashed to the
fool while Billy sank on his knees as
though felled by a blow Tom was
sitting bolt unright in bed his revol
1 ver leveled at BIYs heart
The two razed at each other a mo
ment in utter silence Biys eyes fixed
with the enetraton born of despair
scanned the old mans face and read
there reproach and Diy rather than
a thirst for swift revenge This some
what reassured him and he rose to
his feet
Well he said bluntly what do
you intend to do
So said Tom with a long breath
I wuz mistook in you after all To
think that I gi e you myrriendship an
T T T T T

too Wlut do men usiIlly do when a
pardn r turns thief
You wouldnt shoot me Tom
Why ot Mens been killed fer less
an this dq the world wuz well red of
en1 Then i did mean death
As Billy realized this his face turned
ashen aCe while a palsying terror
struck through him rending his bra
vado and revealing him as the pitiable
dastard hcwas He cowered before the
I old man pleading hysterically
Oh sare me snare me Tom You
1 I said you cared nothing for gold while
I I was mad with love of it I is my
godmy heavenmy everything But

the chance
But thInk Tom what life means to
me Im young and
Think what friendship meant to me
Billy rm old
In the momentary silence that fol
lowed the pines and the river could be
heard singing thir old song unheed
ing Cf tl strie of mortals for a scrap
of the te sure they guarded Tom
heard the song and his bitterness
seemed to eo out with the weird mel
ody Thc hand that held the weapon
dropped listlessly to his side
Il siar yer life he said hoarse
ly you kin go
Billy stood a moment as though he
had notheard
Yer free Go said Tom
The boy glanced from the oldman to
the bag of gold and then turned slow
ly toward the doorway
You better take yer vie now said
Tom quietly as I reckon you wont
be comin back
Do you mean i gasped Billy
Certainly halfs yourn aint it
Theres only one thief in this camp
ani aint me
Torn roceeded to open the bag and
roughly divided the contents
You can take the boat that goes
with your half As ferme he added
In a voice that wavered in spite of him
self Ill do what Id a done if youd
3 robbed me Ill stay awhile longer
with the mountains an the river
Theyre uncertain sometimes an some
times theyre dangerous but rnostvise
theyre betern men
Billy vaguely appreciated the nature
of the man with whom he was dealing
yet he felt that such nobleness re
quired some acknowledgement He
sprang forward and tried to grasp the
old mans hand

EACE PROCEDURE
How Nation Go About Finishing
Up a War
Chicago TimesHerald Nothing that
anaton does is as solemn as the nego
tiating of a treaty OL peace Any treaty
is attended by a good deal of formality
but a treaty 0 peace being the most
important of all is the most formal
The declaration of an armistice is us
ually the first thing on the programme
This means simply a cessation of hos
tilities and a that is usually very
much to the benefit of one side or the
other the victorious nation requires
that the details must be pretty well
I understood before the armistice is d
cared When these details are exten
I sive and stated in black and white the
i agreement is known as a preliminary
I t peace in contrast to the definite peace
I A preliminary peace is fully binding
I and the treaty of Pars between Eng
land and the United States signed Nov
130 1782 was such a document
I The contracting parties usually ap
point commissioners who meet at a
I neutral capital and there agree upon
the details Under international law
I interesteI powers may be included if
I they took a direct part in the war and
if they have any interest involved in
the agreements which may be made by
the nations that are about to settle
their differences I would be on such
a plea that the European powers might
attempt to be represented in the Span
ishAmercan treaty They would do
it readily enough on shallow pretexts
as was shown by the RussoTurkish
convention of ISiS and the Japanese
Chinese treaty of 1895 when the pow
ers had practically the entire control
of the negoUatons
I is not likely that the tYnited
States would agree to be treated as
Russia and Japan were The custom
lof the United States has been to deal
solely with its antagonist This was the
case in the peace negotiations with I
England when France and Spain tried
to interfere Spain laid claim to the
territOry between the Mississippi and
the Aleghanies from the gulf to the
lakes and France always Spains
friendne IHght say brother that
quarrels frequently but makes com
mon cause against the outside world
showed clearly that it was no love for I
us that led to its aiding the Americans
in the revolution England showed
herself a better friend or rather that I
she wished to benefit us in preference
to France by agreeing to give us the
I territory and declaring that Spain had
no status
I
Our next treaty of peace that of 181
with England was peculiar in that it
contained no reference to the causes
that brought on the war I settled the
I ownership of islands in PassamaquoddJ
bay and defined the boundary line be
I twern the United States and Canada
I but made no reference to the real is
suesofthe war However the United
I suesofthe
States contentions against the recog
nition of search paper blockades and
I in favor of the right of expatriation
have since become recognized princi
I pIes of International law which are
observed even when there is no def
I nie treaty
I When the United States had con
quered Mexico there was a good deal
i of talk about European interference in
I the terms of the treaty of peace but
t the powers found their informal sug
r
I gestons were received coldly and did
i not press the mater This was the
I first war in which we got an indemnity
I and in fact the only one That one
will be exacted in the war with Spain
goes without saying as that is the
regular custom nowadays Such an in
demnity is required sometimes in ter
ritry ometmes in money and some
I times in both Compensation with
Mexico was exacted only in territory
because of the poverty of our neigh
II boring nation The cost of the war
I had been about 10000000 and we took
California and New Mexico in payment
ther for and gave 15000000 to Mexico
sp well were wesatsfed with the bar

China has lostmuch money and more
territory paid out in indemnities The I
three war with Great Britain of 180

p r w
185 and 1860 lost to her Hongkong cost
aI indemniy of 3500000 and opened
several ports 10 trade
The treaty of Prague that marked
the close of the war between Prussia
and Austria in 1866 provided not alone
for the cession of territory by the van
I quished and the exclusion of Austria
I from the German bund but also an
I indemnity of 40000000 thalers or 30
000000 A good price for seven weeks
I of war
t France paid the greatest war indem
I nity that has been exacted since the
days when conquest meant the prac
tically absolute confiscation of all of
the private property of the enemys
I stbjects After the captur of Pars
Emperor William demanded the pay
meat of 6000000000 francs or 1200
I 1000000 by the presumptuous nation
that had dared to oppose his amIes
11 Thiers succeeded having this re
I duced to 5000000000 francs or 100
00000 The hardest blow to France
I was the making of Alsace and Lorraine
German territory
Russia punished Turkey severely for
I her temerity 1n waging the war of 1877
The treaty of Stefano signed 1 months
I after the beginning of the war pro
vided that the sultan should pay an
I indemnity < of 141Dtl0ti0 roubles o < r
i30OOO000 About onehalf of this was
in payment for the cost of the war and
the other half was for damage done
by Turks to citizens of Russia The
czar preferred territory to cash and
the sultan havIng more of the former
than the later article willingly agreed
to cede part of his land The powers
allowed Turkey make such a cession
as they approved and the war led di
recty to the great treaty of Berlin
which was to settle the eastern ques
tion and to eVerbodys surprise has
settled it for 20 years at least
Japan believes she was defrauded of
the just fruits of her victory over
China Yet the mikado exacted from
the celesta emperor a sum amount
ing to nearly 20000000 and added to
his territory the Island of Formosa as
a result of the terms of the treaty rat
fed at Chefoo May 8 1895 The is
land whose soil is said to be the rich
est in the world was a splendid prize
Its area is as great as that of Massa
chusetts and Connecticut combined
and its population 2OOOOOD The rec
ognition of the independence of Corea
for which the war was waged also
followed
War was a losing investment for the
sultan of Turkey when he fought
Greece lat yea The powers would
not let him exact an indemnity of more
than 20000000 which was not more
than a fourth of what the war actually
cost the grand Turk But Greece was
poor and the adding of new debt to
her already overwhelming obligations
would have swamped the nation
According to the Yahington corre
spondents it is understood that we will
require the independence of Cuba un
der an American protectorate and The
possession of Porto Rico certainly
while i is more than likely that we
shall demand coaling stations in the
conquered Pacific islands Falling any
precise declaaton to the contrary we
would hold all that we might have con
quered up to the time of the cessation
of hostilities by the right of ut pos
sedits which simply means the right
to keep what you have won
Whatever we may gain Spain is
bound to retire and leave us in pos
session International law requires
this but the authorities generally say
that the ceding nation is not obliged
to secure the newcomer in possessIon i
HOW PRIVATE HA1TLEY SAVED
GIBRALTAR
The most memorable siege of Gibral
tar indeed one of the most memorable
of all sieges was tat which the fort
ress sustained from the combined sea
forces of France and Spain during the
years 179 to li83 I
The great attack on the place was made
on the 13th of September li82 and all
the resources of power and science were
exhausted bythe assailants in the fruit I
less attempt
It was Oi this day that a humble Dri
rate performed dn act which history has
handed down to us The business of the
siege progressed The rock by the bat
teries sent forth its splinters to deal
destruction around at every impact of
the SpanIsh shot but the return fire was
of the most telling description and most
steadily kept up by the Britsh
But remove from the smoke and din
in the lahorato of the garrison sur
roundea by the chemistry of war sat one
man a humble private His duty it was
while his comrades worked the guns in I I
the suffocating casements of the covered I I
batteries to prepare the shells for the I I
use of the mortars A dnagerous task
so dangerous In fact that even the cx
aminatlon of the deadly missUes is con I
sidered sufficiently perilous on bad
ship to warrant a stage being slung over
the side to b occupied by only one or
two men the others being kept at a dis I
tance But familiarity with peril robs
men of their fear and Hartley sat busily I I
making ready shell after shell filling
them with the explosive composition and
afterwards fitting In the fuses driving I
them home and ranging the prepared
I shells in cases till they should be fetched
to be sent in fiery arcs to deal death and I
destruction amongxt the enemy
mong
The laboratory was at that time full I
of explosive material every grain of
which was of inestimable value to the
beleagured garrison and It had been
accordingly placed In a position whIch
rendered it Impossible for the shot or
shell of the enemy t reach it Bu now
But
the danger guarded against from with
out threatened I possible more terribly I
from withinthreatened to destroy at one
i
blow the whole of the explosive corn
pounds stored for defense and this at a
time when such a loss would have been I
irreparable
Shell after shell had been fled the
gim black spheres as they lay ready I
giving but small signs of theIr deadly
powerthe force that should rend them
into innumerable snreds of castiron each i
to maim 01 slay
Suddenly whie calmly proceeding with I
redo shell and the drivipg fuse a took fuse into lire a hissing fresh
loudly 3S it discharged Its rain of sparks i
and butning rapidly away rhere seemed
hardly time for thought much less for
action and the first feelings of Haltey I
were those of lank dIsmay
He had seenJthe discharge and flight
of shells so ofen that he knew he
could only reckon upon its burning foe

a few seconds and then would come the
dire explosion that should act upon the
part of the fortress where he was like an I
earthquakethe bursting of the shell be
ins as it were but the flash in the pan
that should prelude the blowing up of the I
laboratory But with the calmness of the
man whose trade was one which brought
him daily face to face with death < Hart
Icy seized the shell i both hands hurried I
out into the open air and th n with a I
tremendous effort hurled the deadly globe I
far into space where a coUple of seconds
after it harmlessly burt I was not
until some time after that the performer
of this i daring ta could thoroughly Ti
the great danger that had threatened I
him with destruction and though the I
peril was past it was some time after
and then only with unstrung nerves that
he returned to his perilous task

Her Letter
Im sitting alone by the fire
I Dressed just as I came from the dance
In a robe even you would admire
I cost a cool thousand in France
Im bedlamdnded out of all reason
My hair Is done un in a cue
I In short sir the belle of the season
J
Is wasting a hour upon you
A dozen engagements Ivc broken
I left in the midst of a set
I Likewise a proposal half spoken
That walsn the statrsfor me yet
I They say hell be richwhen he grows up
i And then he adores me indeed
And you sir are turning your nose up
Three thousand niles off a6 you read
I
And how do I like my position
And what do I thInk of New York
Afll now in my higher ambition
With whom do I waltz frt or talk
And Isnt it nice to have riches I
And diamonds and silks and all that
And arent It a change to the ditches
And tunnels of Poverty Flat
Well yesif you saw us out driving
Each day in the park fourinhand
I you saw poor dear mamma contriving
To look supcrnaturl grand
I yOU saw papas picture a taken
By Brady and tinted at that
Youd never suspect he sold bacon
And four at Poverty Fiat
And yet just this moment when sitting
In the glare of the grand cbandeler
In the bustle and glitter befitting
The finest soiree of the year
In the mIdst of a gaze de chambery
And the hum of the smallest of talk
Somehow Joe I thought of the Fern
And the danco that we had on The
Fork
Of Harrsons barn with Its muster
Of fags festooned over the wall
Of j rndles that she their soft lustre
And tallow on headdress and shawl
01 ue bCS that we took to one fiddle
Of the dress of my queen visavis
And how I once went aown the middle
With the man that shot Sandy McGee
Of the moon that was quietly steeping
On the hill when the time came to go
Of the few baby peaks that were peeping
From under their bedclothes of snow
Of that ridethat to me was the rarest
Ofthe something you said at the gate
Ah Joe then I wasnt an heIress
To thW betpaying lead In the state
Well well Its all past yet its funny
To think as I stood in the glaro
Of fashion and beauty and money
That I should be thinking right there
Of some one who breasted dwW1ht I
And swam the North Fork and all that
Just to dance with old Folnsbees daugh
ter
The Lily of Poverty Flat
But goodness what nonsense Im writing
Mamma says mr taste still is now
Instead of my triumphs reciting
Im spooning on Josephhelghho
And Im to be finished by travel
hatevers the meaning of that
Oh why did papa strike pay gravel
In drifting on Poverty Flat
Good nightheres the nd of my paper
Good nighti tho longitude please
For maybe while wasting my taper
Your suns climbing over the trees
But know if you havent got riches
And are poor dearest Joe and all that
That my hearts somewhere there in the
ditches
And youve struck ion Poverty Flat

I His Answer to Her Letter
Reported by Truthful James
i Being asked by an Intimate part
Which the same I would term as a
friend
Though his health i were vain to can
hearty
I Since the mind to deceit l migh lend
For his arm It was broken quite recent
And theres something gone wrong with
his lung I
Vhch Is why it Is pr per and decent
I should write what he runs off his
tongue
First he says Miss hes read through
your letter
To the endand the end come too
soon
That a slight illness kept him your
debtor
Which for weeks he was wild as a
loon
That his sllrts arc uoyant as yours
is
That Fate with you Miss he challenges
Which the language that invalid uses I
At times it were vain to relate
And he says that the mountains are
fairer
For once being held in your thought
That ech rock holds a wealth that Is
rarer
Than ever by goldseeker sought
Which are words he would put in these
pages
By a party not given to guile
Though the claim gven at date paying
wages
Might produce in the sinful a smile
He remembers the bal at the Fern
And the ride and the gate and the
vow
And the rose that you gave hImthat
very
Same rose he is treasuring now I
Which his blanket hes kicked on his 1 I
trunk Miss
lss
And Insists on his legs being free
And his language to me from his bunk
Miss
Is frequent and painful and free
He hopes you are wearing no willows
But are happy and gay all the while
That he Imowswhlch this dodging of
pillows
Imparts but small ease tothe style
And the same you will pardonhe knows
Miss
That though parted by many a mile
Yet were lie lying under the snows
Miss
Theyd melt into tears at your smile
And youll still think of him in your
pleasures
In your brief tnlllguit dreams of the
past
In this green laurel spray that he treas
ures
It wasplucked when your parting was
last
In this specimenbut a small trifle
It will do for a pin for your shawl
Vliich the truth not to wickedly stifle
Was his last weeks cleanupand
his all
Hes asleep which the same might seem
strange Miss
Were It not that I scorn to deny
That I raised his last dose for a change
Miss
In view that his fever was high
But he lies there quite peaceful and pen
sive
And now my respects Miss to you
Wrlmich my language although compre
hnsive
Might seem to be freedom its true
Which I have a small favor to ask you
As concerns a bullpup and the same
If the duty would not overtask you
You would please to procbre for me
game
And send per express to the Flat Miss
For they say York is famed for the
breed
Which though words of deceit may be
that Miss
Ill trust to your taste Miss Indeed
P SWhich this same Interfering
Into other folks way I despise
Yet if it 50 be I was hearing
That Its just empty pocket as lies
Betwixt you and Joseph it fojiers
That having no ffimily claipis
Heres my pile which is six hundre4 del
lars
As is yours with resnects

fairest
For once being held in my thought
Ncw really I call that the barest
Ofwell I wont say what I ought
For here I am back Iroer my riches
My triumphs mY tours and all
that
And youre not to be fomid in the ditches
Or temples of Poverty Flat
From Paris we went for the season
To London when pa wared Stop
Mamma says his health was the reason
Ive heard that some things took a
drop
But she said If my patiencai Id summon
I could go back with him tothe Flat
Perhaps I was thinking of some one
Who of mewellwas not Ithinking
that
In this brandnew hotel called The
Lily
I wonder who gave it that name
I really am feeling quite silly
To think I was once called the same
And I stare from its nindows and fancy
Im labeled to each passerby
Ah gone Is the old necromancy
For nothing seems right to my eye
On the hill there are stores that I knew
not
Theres a streetwhere I once lost my
way
And the copse where you once tied my
shoeknot
Is shamelessly open as day
And that bank by the spring1 once drank
there
And you called the place Eden you
know
Now Im banished like Evethough the
bank there
Is belonglngto Adams
P S
Ive just got your note You deceiver
How dared youhow could you Oh
Joe
To think Ive been kept a believer
In things that were six months ago
And Its youve built this house and the
bank too
And the mills and the stores and all
that
And for everything changed I must thank
you
Who have struck It on Poverty Flat
How dared you get richyou great
stupid
Like papa and some men that I know
instead of just trusting to Cunid
And to me for your money Ah Joe
Just to think you sent never a word
dear
Till you wrote to papa for consent
Now I know why they had me trans
ferred here
And the health of papawhat that
meant
Now I know why they call this The
Lily
Why the man who shot Sandy McGee
You made mayor Twas becauseoh
you silly
He once went down the middle with
me
Ive been fooled to the top of my bent
here
So come and ask pardonyou know
That youve still got te get my consent
dear
And just think what that echo said
Joe
