KutTOit Natiowat, IturontioAMi My letter rovlowlnif tho operations of the luhor bureau, publlshud in your Issuo of tlio 1th, lias been rocolvo-1 by tlio press of the country with favornblo comment. I was actuated by no feeling of Ill-will toward tu-jcomrulsstonor of labor In writ ing tlmt article, but promptod tololy by n dcslra to protect tba Intoreit of tlio wane-woman and eccure tn my box a rep resentatives dopattmont In tho formation aud vrorklnf-s of tbo bureau. My object is not to lusult anybody to mako war upou anybody but to boo that equal Jus tice is accorded the waeo-women of the couutry In every department established by tho government at tho national capi tal, especially tho labor bureau. If this is an Insult I am glad of it, end I havo no apologies to mako. The commissioner of labor thought proper to leave woman out in tho cold In the formation of his bureau. I objected, nnd will contlnuo to object, aud ray ob Jectlon will bo sustained by tho country. That is tlio only difl'erenca botwoou tho cotnmliiloner and myself. Tho commissioner will pardon me Just hero if I ask him a question. In rieoking for information on tho sub ject of labor whero will you go and to whom will you go? Not to Kurope, surolyl For if It took 100 consuls turno months to compllo tho information collcetod and now on filo in tho .Stato Departmiint, it would tako your agonls twonty-flvo years. In sending an agent to Kuropo, what instructions could you give bleu not em bodied in the instructions to our consuls In tlio circular from tho Department of htato? This was my plan submitted to tboHlato Department and fully carried out as regards tho female industrians. The Secretary of Stato romarking that it was tho only practical plan, and that, too, submitted by a womau. It Is a fact that all tho information collcetod regarding tho state of labor in Kuropo and pro nounced so valuable to our archlvos was a plan organized by a woman, aud that woman tuu numuio writer 01 mis article This Is no Idlo boast, bnt Is substantiated Si, tin. ..ivi.i tt tliA Kttn Tltinnrtntnnt and tho testimony of tbo members of tbo i Sottato and Houso committees on cdu cation nnd labor. (i As I remarked in my former lottor, "Wo aro satisfied with our knowlcdgo of labor in Kuropo" already received from our consular agents, and published to tho country In every senso of tho term. To tako any portion of tho limited fund appropriated for tho labor bureau, and fit out agents for Kuropo at this time, would be worso than folly a wasto of time and money, and an outrago perpetrated on tbo wagc-labororsof tho country. Nothing could bo gained, and this courso pursued by the commissioner would subject his conduct to ceniure. Ills agents could certainly give us nothing now, unless they were thodoscondauts of (Sullivor, whoso travels oxclto the risibilities of mankind. Mr. Frellnghnyson, our lato Secretary of State, in his letter to Congress review ing tho reports from the consuls in rela tion to the stato of labor In Europe, pays tho consuls a well-merited tribute. From overy country, evory clime, reports were compiled respecting the state of labor, nnd wh&toror good posterity may derlvo from this fund of information may be Justly attributed to the zeal of woman. Let us then concedo that our informa tion respecting labor in Kuropo is com plete; that it certainly cannot bo added to by tbo agents of Mr. Wright, and that the attempt on their part would bo fruit less "lovo'a labor lost." In theso consular reports wo And much to instruct us, for the labors of women were taken Into account as well as man. Our consul at Drosden, when speaking of female labor, says, some things wnich may oe interesting to too American realtors: "An importaut factor in tho labor of Germany is not iuquirod of by the cir cularthe labor of dogs. I have heard it estimated that women and dogi, harnessed together, do more hauling than the rail roads aud all other modes of conveyanco of goods united. Hundreds of small wagons can be seen every day on all tbo roads leading to and from Dresden, each having a dog for the 'near horso' bar ncised, wbile tho 'off bono' is a woman, with her left hand grasping tho wagon tongue, to giro it direction, and tho right band passed tbrougli a loop in a rope which is attached totbeaxle, binding her shoulder; thus harnessed woman and dog trudge along together, pulling miraculous loads in all sorts of weather." Tho labor bureau, like charity, should commence at homo. If we can profit by tbo lesions the consuls send us from other lands, let us do so. The United States claim our undivided attention, and tho bout means to bo devised and tbo best modo to elevate labor and benefit tho laborer should be our morning aud even ing lesion. Tbo condition ot tho wage women, the bread.wlnr.crs, engross my attention. How shall wo benefit them That's tho question. Can wo do it by legislation? If bo, toll us how. (Jlvo us u practical answer 1 In the first pluco, wo aro entitlod to and solemnly demand that a woman's depart ment rhould lo added tu the labor bureau, and that a woman should be thief of that department. Tula Men is absolutely nec essary to give woman a rcpresontatlvo In the labor Interests of the country fos tered and maintained by Congress. Let lis have this first of all. Wu will admit of no denial. In tbo second place, wo shall aik tho government to at least notice tho condi tion of our waite-woiueu. This is no now or novel idea. Franco docs not forget hers. In her glory the remembers her wago-women, ana has provided ISO In dustrial schools for them, fosters and maintains them, aud tbo result litr-i shown that they aro almost sell-supporting, nnd the great good they havo dona would fill volumes. Is our government less liberal than France? It is a subject of comment among all humanitarians with whom I havo con versed that our government, tbo foromost of tho uatlons of the earth In overy groat j Wright inakos tbo dlHoronco in tho nam and laudable enterprise, should neglect , ingsof tboKngllsh aud American weavers the care and supervision of its wago- appear comparatively small in favor of womon. My answer has always been, the American, whllelhoprlcooftboiioccs. that it resulted mora from n spirit of In - dltlerence than from u want of sympathy on tbo part of our Cougrcu, That tho question had not been sorlously agitated; that tho Idea was a new one, und that If wo earnestly advocated tho project of es tablishing theso schools our eilorts wuuld to crowned with success. This Is a prac tical move, and something practical is do- uaudLd, It renuircd nojlearned disquisitions to toach us tho absolute necoisity of taking I to bo believed? Mr. Wright should some important stops to better the coudl-1 try again, lint wo forgot. He can do tlon of our laboring classos, especially our nothing practical, ho says. Don't pro imnu.wninnu. It la universally conoodcil I Peso It. It is not the duty of his bureau. that woman Is tho weaker vessel, yet so- ilety Is so constituted that sho Is forced to near me priucipai uurueus 01 nie, nun In her race as u bread-winner overy Im pediment is thrown in her way. In tho wovk-sbop, in tbo factory every whero nho finds employment she is either given tliodiudgory to perform or requlrod to do the Minn nuiount of work as a man for less pay. Is tali Just? Is It not an un feeling, unjust, heartless discrimination, inch m a bravo and chivalrous people should ho ashamed of? 1 will givo, just bore, an illustration to show the unjust discrimination madoby the government. The governmout print ing olllce is a branch of the Interior De partment, Tho clerks aud employes of the interior Department are untitled 10 and obtain an annual leave of thirty days with pay. This is denied tho eoui posl tors nnd other employes of the government printing olllco, The clerk is considered au oruamout for many purposes. The vrinttr is mechanic and ha) to work, If tho clerk Is sick bis salary goes on. If tho printer Is sick his wages stop. Doth aro cmltyod by tho government durlue goud Miavior. Why tlilsdUcrliulnatlou 1( IS not urn mint ui iur. n l. unumii, tbo popular publloprlnter, wliu h.ii called tho attention of Congress to tbo necessity of granting a leave of dftcett days to tho employes of tils ofllce. I fcol cortaln tho rcquoit will bo granted. Tho request is reasonable and should bo. I havo mora than onco had occislon to pay a tribute to Mr. Hounds Ho is a hard worker himself, audioes to the com fort of those under him. With 3,300 working pooplo on tho rolls, tho sanitary condition of tils building was nil object of his solicitude, and, In rospoiuo to his urg ent apuoal, Congress niado n special ap propriation lor sanitary nurposes in the government printing olllco, and a radical Improvement for tho better was tho re sult. Mr. Hounds is tho kind of mon wo need. Ito has shown conclusively that It is only necessary tn let tho representa tives of the pcnplo know what is needed and an appropriation follows. Why cannot homes and industrial col leges bo established for wage-women? This is a pertinent question. Tho homes for workiug women In our country what fow thero arowcie established and aro fostered by prlvntu charity. It seems to bo tho settled policy of tho powers that ex ist to cxcludo tho wage-woman to os chow her presenco in all public Institu tions, In tho appointment of medical inspectors (there aro cloven lit this Dis trict, and not a woman among them), In tho olllcers of prisons, woman is left out or forgotten. I Lavo ilwnys contended that tbo sani tary condition of the factories, shops, &c. whoro womon aro omployod ehould engage public attention, and that womau should havo her nlnuo of patronage in all tbo appointments to till tboso positions. Homo ofllccs they could till hotter than men, aud give mora satisfaction to tbo general public Tho counts shows that in Now York city alone tho excess of femalo over the tnalo population Is moro than 100,000. It is nearly as groat in all oar large cities. Tho prisons' n port or statistics of crimo show a very small ucrcoutago of womon among convicts. This demonstrates that women aro less criminal than men, And oven that small percontago la duo mainly to tho fact that they wore driven by want, neglect, nnd hunger to transgress tho laws. Two million flvo hundred thousand dollars is required annually to support tho prisons in New York state Au equal amount appropriated for tho estab lishment of homes for tho wage-workors would lessen the percentage of crime, and accomplish an incalculable amount of good, and rollovo an untold amount of suilering. Just think of it ' The condition of the dwolllngs of tho poor mount rocetvo tiu largo consilium ion of tbo stato government and private individuals. Tho sanitary condition of tbo homos of tho poor should bo regularly aud thoroughly looked after. This Is oi absolutely essential as food and raiment, aud is the primo cauio of tho largo death rato in crowded teuemonts. 1 wish it to bo distinctly understood that I do not advocate tho absurd idea that the government should provide food aud employment for all the poor in tho land, but I do maintain that our government shall do ns much as Franco for her wage women, aud that tho rights of labor, the olevatlon of wage-wokers, and tbo happi ness and comfort of that class should re ceive tho serious consideration of Con gress, and laws onacted to protoct thorn from tbo uniust exactions of soulless cor porations. That Congress should pass such laws Is conccdod by e. cry body, and a labor bu reau was established as an auxiliary. Hut alasl the bureau Is merely u toy for tho amusement of Mr. Carroll D. Wright, commissioner, Ho bus iufurmed tho (sec retary of tho Interior that ho has taken possession of tho bureau; that bo hadn't nny ideas of his own, but has borrowed some from (Jen. Francis A. Walker. Upon which foundation bo has built his bu reau, and tbo devil shall not nrovall against Mm. Ho gives Don. Walker's advlco to tbo public, and then very coolly proceeds to dispose ot tno appropriation of fio.000. Ho glvos himself $3,000, bis chief clerk S.'.UW: rents rooms, luel. Hunts, stat on ery, ic, $J,000, and rciervcs tho $17,000 as a tourist or picnic luuu lor tlioagonts ho will send over to Kuropo and elsewhere. Such ImpudWo is truly rolreshinir. and stamps Mr. Wright as a very juoniislug commissioner oi laoor. Ho says "this amount (nf 125,003) is amnio to oreanlzo and eauln his bureau. but If they expeet 'him' to do anything practical he" must havo moro money. He also says his "bureau is an ofilco peculiar to this country," les, very peculiar, and a more peculiar commissioner was never seen or heard of before. He also says that "tho bureau of labor cannot solvo social or Industrial problems, nor can it bring direct returns in a material trnjr to tho citizens of this country." In other words he will do as ho sees fit and tako $U,0(XI u year for his troublo. Ac cording to his map tho ofilco should here after be styled tho bureau of (esthetics. Mr. Wright says his "work will be classed among educational efforts." Angels and ministers of grace defend us I lie has to Vorruio his idcus to (start a bureau to edu cate tho country. Ho wishes to bo consid ered as a focus an orbit around which tbo labor clement of tho country may le vel vo. What matorlal bcnoflt Is this labor bu reau destined lo exert? None I Wo need not expect it, nnd wo may as well mako up our minds to this effect. Ho tolls us to In plain words. Wo mult look else where for trieuds. Our appeal is to tho peoplo to, Congress. In tbo meantime we must not bo Idle. Wo havu a great work to nccorapllib. While It is sad to think that tho bureau of labor has boon diverted from Its logltimito thunuel, that It is Dead Sea Irtlit to nil, that tho stuffed monkey in tho Smithsonian lias us much sympathy for us as tho commissioner of labor, yet we should tako courago nnd remember that tbo American peoplo are lovers of justice and fair play, und hard work will obtain for us what wo most do sire a labor bureau having common tomio as n basis a cotnuion-aonso bureau nut organized on borrowed ideas, but ono I having tbo interest of tbo wago workers of our country at heart nnd possessing tho ability to solvo industrial problems. Mr, Wright docs not commenco very well as a gathcror of statistics. To show tho unreliability of Information furnished by Carroll D. Wright, commissioner of labor, It Is only nccissnry to read the re port in reply to a resolution of tbo He u a to of Dec. SI, 1831, by Hon. Joseph Nliunio, jr., cuiei oi me uurcau oi statistics. Mr, . saricsoriueisiu lavoroi the Kngllsumau, This statement of Mr. Carroll D. Wrlirht Is fiatly contradicted by Hon, Jonathan Chace, at present United States senator from Rhode Island, who has dovoted his buolness life to the manufacture of goods, being tho proprietor of several largo manufactories, and also by J. & 1', Coats, and tho Clark Thread Company, in re gard to tbo rates of wages paid weavers in tho United SlaUs and Scotland, Who Ho has founded it on icsthetlo Principles for educational purposes, aud don't and won't answer common questions.

Charles I'arkor.bclngnyoUngman from tho cast, and n newly fledged graduate of tho military acadomy, was not lookod upon With sublimo asro by tho frontiers mon around Ms Arizona post, and cer tainly not with a fearful respect by tho military, Tho frontiersmen, from their proud height of dyspepsia nnd dirt, recognized tidy Mr. 1'arkor only as n "tenderfoot," whllo the older olllcers and soldiers wero naturally alow to concede military morlt to n youngster who bad escaped death or conrt-martlal for a shorter porlod than themselves. In reality Llout. Tarkcr knew Tory Uttloof tho onorgetlc west as it mate rialized nround Fort McDowell, and what little he knew did not swell him with pride. It was his idea that, if knowlcdgo Is power, knowledgo of Ari zona was only mule power, and not to bo coveted. Ho was not in deadly fear of that truculent creaturo, tho Arlroniau in a red shirt; but if ho had chosen an In dividual to stand botwlxt tho wind and his nobility, tho gentleman in tho car mlno camiaa would not havo obtained tho situation. His life was not totally without charm, for ho was In lovo with bis colonol's daughter, ono of thoso charm ing young ladles found only In army circles, who have all the polish of their moro fortunate city sisters, with aseduc tiro franknoss and abandon dovoloped in tholr Bohemian oxlstenco. Whon not ongaged in lovo making nnd he was an export lu that pleasant nmuiemont young l'arker sat In his quarters with a big pipe, as befitted an army man, rested his fcot gracefully on tho mantel, nnd conscientiously "kept up his French" by roadlng lurid Claicon uovols which began, "Madame, Je vals vnus raeontcr uno tres bello hlstolro." liosidos, ns mentally he lived still In tho cist, ho followed in a dozon papers tho society, thnator, and sporting news of civilization. If nt nny moment ho bad been translated to Chicago his choice for tho evening theator would havo al ready been made. Ho would have been entirely an fait with current gossip, and his baso ball bets would havo boon marked by a knowledgo of tho most startling Intimacy. It was arranged between Mlts Helen and Tarkor that wheu ho could got a lcavo It should be for n wedding journey. It was tho peculiar tbarmof this arrange ment that it was insdo without tbo colo nel's assistance or knowlodge. Lovers must havo their secrots. A lovor without a wolgbty secrot would cut as poor a figure as n sccrotless statesman, llowover, tho chances of Parker's getting a fur lough wore dim. His captain was on an indefinite sick leave, having a splondld tlmo and entering hoartlly Into buslnoss, whllo his first lieutenant was engaged lu Washington on aomo onorons duty which requlrod peculiar talents and con siderable "Influcuco." "Ono officer," said the law, "must bo with tho troop," aud when tbo law uttered theso words it Ignored thcTastuto captain and tho power ful first lleutonant nnd pointed with its crooked finger directly at onr friend, Mr. Parker. Tbo morning when history finds mm, the lono lieutenant, acting as post adju tant, was sitting at his desk in tho colo nel's ofilco, gravely referring official papers to himself in some of bis many capacities, such as quarterniastor, com missary, ordnanoo officer, post treasurer, chief of scouts, overseer of schools, or perpetual officer of tho day. By his formal words ono would havo thought him on Tory frigid terms with hlmsolf. Instead, for Instance, or saying. "Parker, will you tako a squint at this 1" he wrote: "Kespcctfully roferred to Llout. Parker, who will take the action required." Meanwhile tbo colonel was knitting his brows over an ordor from headquar ters. " What do you think of that?" ho said at last, handing tho paper to Parker. The young man read tho order, bnt made no answer. Ho, liked to have his opinion asked, but he' did not suppoio that Ills crude Ideas would bo of valuo to an officer of so much grcator experience. "What do you think J" ropeated tho colonel mildly. "I suppose It'll have to bo done," said tho lloutenant vaguely, not knowing on what point a reply was wished. "Yes," musod tbo colonel, "but how? This says he is supposed to be at Sanford, but tho description is vaguo to mako a search on." "Oh, that," said Parker, "why I think I know tho man alroady. I saw hlra last summer when I was surveying tho line from Gila Bend to Tucson. He koepi a saloon In Sanford." Tho colonel shook his head. "I was going to send for an oldor officer, but if you can Identify tno man you'll novo to go. Hump I not a very pleasant or easy duty" and ho looked hard at the young man's smooth face; "it's worse than In dian fighting. Maybo I better havo an older officer go with you." "If you think it nocossary." "I don't," said tbo colonel, instantly determined by Parker's look; and ho wroto in pencil tho draft for an order: "Lieut. C. Parker will proceed imme diately to Sanford, Ariz., with a detail of six mon and arrest escaped military con vlet John Doviuo." "Just have that published." Parker hesitated; but as the responsi bility of tho arrest was to be upon him bo determined to speak. "If that order is published, word of It will go to this con vict by 'the underground,' aud he will glvo mo tbo Blip." "Suppose you were to no away without an ordor," said tbo colonel, "that would oxclto suspicion as well." "Let It bo a false order." "It wouldn't do any good. Whon those fellows see a soldier they aro on the alert, order or no order. They know tho sol dier Is after aomo one, and they send the word on by their underground for tho beueflt of whom it may concern. You will have to tako the chance of travollug as flit as tbo news of your coming." But Parker had an Idea. He thought ho could ontrap an Arlzouian as easily as if ho had worn a rod shirt from Infancy, "I learned something," said he, "last sum mer when I was down therj. When thoy knew I was surveying I could havo bad as many blacklegs in my socloty as I wished, Mr. Dovlno hlmsolf waltod on mo at his saloon. Send mo down on tele graph builueis again." "Uoodl" cried the colonel. "Mako out an order to oxamlne the line and publish it bore. You will have the real orderand warrant in your pocket." Iu half au hour the ambulanco rolled out of Fort McDowell Into the long road ucroas thodoiert. Tho soldiers woro In good spirits over tholr holiday. Very truo, they carried carblnos and revolvers, but in Arizona carbines aud rovolvers aro as readily associated with good spirit! as cheerfulness with beans and big grocery hills in New Kuglaud. The lieutenant, having no ono to be gay witb, wondered what Miss Helen would think of his ex pedition, und, having como to a compli mentary conclusion, vtipod the alkali dust from bla eyes and began a new "bello hlsloire." The roads wero deep, but tho slx-mulo team nf "shavo tails" sidled steadily on, aud by night sixty-five miles of sage-brush on each sido of tho way bad recoived an additional layer to Its century old and hoary coat of alkali. This travol brought them to Sacaton, on the Ulla, where Parker had been tho summer pre vious. When the peoplo learned his pres ent errand ho was hospitably entortalucd, aud no warning of his coming was sent forward. But, In a consultation with the Indian agent, to whom he rovoaled his truo orders, ho learned that the convict, frightened by pre vious rumors, had sold his saloon aud was about to leave. This rendered nn arrest a mattor of doublo difficulty and danger, Under the olrcnmstances, although tho next day was Suuday, Parker determined to push ou. At 0 o'clock Sunday morning tbo ambulanco was 011 its way, nlth a drlvo beforo It to Sanford of elghteon miles. Parker finished tbo "bello his tolro" In bis agreeable charaotor of "chore madame," but half a mile from his desti nation he put off his unconcern and or dered tho driver to stop, Then ho pulled his trne aiders from his pocket aud read tuem. una eoiaiors xtenanttea ulauceS, They thought tho young lieutenant would not take things so easily If ho knew tbo desporato character of his business. Mora respoct was visible In tholr facos when he gavo his orders. They perceived from his tono that if any one faltered it would not bo tlio "boy." "Wo will drlvo Into the plaza In front of Smith's, Dovlno will probably bo In aomo saloon opposite. If peoplo ask our buslnois, it's telegraph, Wo havo como twonty-throo miles out of our way by tbo telegraph lino to mako thorn bellovo it, 1 shall go across tho plaza to tho saloons. You will loaf nlong fifty yards in tho rear with yonr carbines. I'll let ydn know whon I want you. Now, drlvo on." Arrived at Sanford theso directions wore carried out to tbo letter. A small but hard-looking crowd gathered around tbo ambulance whero it halted. "Hallo, nontenant I" said Smith, the town ahystor, coming out. "What Is it ?" "Telegraph," replied Parkor, for all to hoar, " I'vo como out to seo what you folks can put up for it." "Good," said Smith, whllo a murmur of approbation went through tho crowd. "I'll tako you around to seo tho people. Havo tba man put up tho rig." "Can't stop long enough. I'm going on to Florence to get their Ideas. Thai's the short way homo, and I must get back to mako my report. Drivor, keep tho team horo. You men can go whoro you please, but bo baek in tlmo to start." Tho ruso having succeeded so far Parker and Smith walked across tho plaza to tho saloons (Sunday or Monday tho heart of Sanford business) whllo tho men followed aimlessly along, carrying their carblnos on their hips. Tbo Arlzonlans rensiderod this a very poacoful spectacle, but thoy did not know that tu overy carblno thero was a bullet of 403 grains, with 70 grains of powdor behind It. "Como lu und have somothing," said tlio hospltablo Smith whon they had orossod tho square; "holp you talk bnslnoss." Parker accepted, and thoy wont In. Tho saloon consisted of two rooms, front aud rear; in the front room wero two or throa loungers, but from the back room thero issued through nn open door at tho end of tho bar various sounds which gave evidencoof acrowdod table of gamblers Parker gavo his orderand placed hlmsolf so that by turning his head he could com mand a full vlowof tho back room, Thon ho looked for his men. Thoy wero al ready at the saloon door loaning 011 tbelr carblnos. Tboy played their parts woll, for thoy seemed only waiting for their superior beforo thoy took u turn at tho bar. Parker ponrodout a generous, Arizona glass and took It up; but instoad of re plying to Smith's bacchanalian saluto of "Woll, lieutenant, hero's bow," be turnod his eyes and glanced into tho baek room. Directly in front of him at tbo opposite sido of tho table sat Dovlne. At the word "lleutonant" the convict raised his oyos and mot Parker faco to face. Ills first in stinct boiog to cscapo recognition, ho re sorted to the clumsy dovico of dropping his glanco aud slouching forward his som brero. Parker lookod at him absently, turned to tbo front of tho saloon, and still holding up his glass, mado the signal, Thon, without drinking, ho sot the glass down and walked dircotly to tho door of tbo gambling-room. He did not know what tragody would follow his words, but bo Bald, "Jobn Devlne, I want you." A dozen pairs of cyos woro turned to ward him and a dozen hands sought for tbo ovor-ready "guns;" but the pistols wero not drawn. Almost immediately tho men assumed a look of welcome, and seemed tacitly' to acknowlodgo that thoy had mistaketvlho intruder. "Hullo, lieutenant I" cried two or thrco in a frantte offort,to set themselves right. "Hullo! Come In, oomo in. Glad to see you. Barkoep, somctblngfor tbo lieuten ant. Como in," "Thank you," said Parker, wondering what itciU this grcotlng was meant to covor. "I'm on buslnoss, and business comes first. .Cqmo, Johnny, I want you." "What! want Johnny? What's ho dono?" thoy cried in grioved surprise. "Now, lieutenant, youdon't want Johnny, do you?" I, Parker mad no answer, but kepi his eyo warily 011 tbo crowd. Dovlno throw ilown bis cards, as if In despair. "All right; I'vo got to go. This thing has been hanging over mo for a year, and I'm glad it's come." "But don't bo in a rash," cried tho others; "don't bo in a rush, nontenant. Have a drink. Como in and sit down. Wo ain't seeyoa'ln years." Parker was so dumfounded by this con tinued politeness that be looked about for the causo. It was evldont, A big sergeant stood behind him with two corkod revolvers aimed at tho erowd; on each sido of tho door wero soldiers with pointed carbines. The Arizona dosperado understands the doctrino of chances as woll as tho rest oi us. Devlne arose to follow. Ho looked mournfully at bis big pile of chtos. "Who's banker?" asked Parkor, who, being a pretty "stiff" pokor player him self, understood Devlno's feelings. "Hanker, cash Johnny's chips. Sorry I can't let him stay so that you can havo back at him, but the money's his." Thn disappointed banker made the ex change While the -party woro taking Devlne to his houso, whero tho convict wished to say good-by to his wlfo, a horseman passed thorn at full speed going toward Florence, a llttlo town to tho east. The incident did not oscaps tho unsophisti cated lieutenant. Ho sent an orderly for tho ambulanco, and hurried Devino through his faro wolls. When tho wagon drovo up ho was ready. Everybody was mounted. The convict had the appearanco of boing per fectly hopeless, "Which way?" said tho drivor. Parker lookod Dovlno keenly in the faco and answered, "Back through Sacaton." Tho convict dropped his bead, and his hopelessness was no longor assumed. "Our friend on the horso will preparo his ambush fur nothing, won't ho?" asked Parker. "He just will," roplted tho convict.with a laugh.
