Fate smiled upon the miner Francis Root of New Orleans, his name being the first taken from the urn. Root was a bachelor of 32, who look ed 40,. however, for a man grows old quickly working In a coal mine. The conditions were read to him by a notary public, who asked him to sign m paper. "One thing Is very Important," be aid, "you must solemnly bind your self to take up your work In the mine when, yon return and not give It up for 10 years. If you try to back out, you will be forced to carry out your part of , the agreement If necessary by the aid of Pinkerton's men." Francis Root signed the paper. For a year be lived In New York, learned French, Oerman, Italian, learn ed to dress well and to move In the best society.. He went ' the theaters, visited the opera, learned to sail, row, and swim. He lived In a beautiful cottars on tbe Shore Road, a young painter was bis companion and taught him to appreciate the beauties of tbe see, tbe setting sun and tbe green woodlands. He often spent whole Man In hia Hrll vaeht alma with tha painter's coast n. a charming young girl, who gave bis education the last finishing touches. On Oct 14, 1M0 Francis Root went on board the great ocean filer "Vic toria" accompanied by tbe young painter, who was to act as bis secre tary. On tbe promenade deck they were met by a messenger from Mr. Charles M. E. Chugs who banded Mr. Root a letter of credit for $15,000. aside from the amount of tbe stipulat ed traveling expenses: this- money wan to be spent for minor expenses In the great cities from Toklo to Stock holm. .

Tbe wonder of Japan, the fairylike splend or of India, the smartness of the Riv iera, the calm beauty of the nights on shipboard, bis friendship with tbe painter, the loving letters from the cousin, the pleasures . of Parts, tbe countries, night in the desert under the yellow sky, then the long Journey screes Siberia quiet tundras, tae Bar baric splendor of JXreml at Moscow, a summer night on the Lido at Venice, lying almost naked on the beach near tbe most beautiful women of Europe, in' Rome be knelt before tbe master pieces of Michelangelo, at Nice be aaw . the' gayest carnival In the, world, then suddenly be was la Asia Minor, and visited, from there tbe barren towns of tbe Holy Land. His friend, tbe paint er, had letters of Introduction to prom inent people everywhere. He met tbe greatest poets and tbe most charming When he again landed In New York en Oct. 14, 1M3, the whole thing seemed to him a dream. He wanted to thank his benefactor, ; Mr. Charles M. E. Chugge, but bis friend, the painter, said. "No, you mast, wait, be will send for you." Four days later he was back la New Orleans. He returned to bis old bouse and waa shocked by Its smallaesa end poverty its mean, cheerless ' rooms, i. - . . " i HAIR WONT FALL OUT. I but be unpacked bis trunks and filled tbe rooms with all the treasures be bad bought: Persian carpets. Hun garian embroideries, Japanese wood cute. Chinese silks, Russian samovars, Turkish pipes, butterflies from Brazil, birds from India and hundreds of other CUriOS. :-,.-...,. -'... .,.-. :', On Oct 20 he received orders to go to work in bis old mine two days later. He remembered the ' agreement' and thought of tbe Plnkertons who were to force him, and obeyed the order. On Oct 22 be was deep under ground working ' half-naked in the black pit the perspiration covering his whole body, all alone bis miner's lamp faint ly Illuminating the ' darkness. And here be must work eleven hours every day. ... - Tbe third day they sent for him. Mr. Charles M. E. Chugge was waiting for him In the director's room.' Did he wsnt to-change his clothes. No! So much the better. Mr. Chugge would rather see him in bis working clothes. Only a small souvenir ' Francis Root would like ' to fetch from his . bouse. It would take only a moment' In the director's room, Francis Root ssw his benefactor, Mr. Charles M. E. Chugge the first time. . He. was an In dolent, pale, fst man, lying in a big easy . chair. His face looked sleepy. He raised his fat hand almost Imper ceptibly as a greeting. "8it down Mr. Root, and tell me bow you feel." ' . . - "Thank you. I prefer to stand. '. Do you . wish" a detailed ' report?" , ...The fat face smiled: "No, 'no., I only wsnt you to tell me how you feel now." On his way home Francis Root i began to suspect that the millionaire did -not care to bear about bis, trip, and for tbat reason be bad slipped a revolver Into bis pocket But to be quite sure be asked once more: "8ball I tell you a bout India,' about the starlit nights 'of the North, of our tigerbunts In Bengal?" The stolid ' ' fat . face smiled more wickedly then before and pointing a fat finger at him tbe millionaire an swered: "No, sir, none of that? I Just want to bear bow you feel when you are below In' tbe dark pit, where you are to spend tbe next 10 years of your life. It was quiet In tbe room. Francis Root's band sought bis hip pocket in which he had tbe souvenir, whipped out a revolver and shot bis benefactor down with three shots. One bullet crashed Into ' his brain, the other two lodged In bis fat body. When be told the Jury about bis trip around the world and bis talk with bis benefactor be was acquitted on tbe spot If You Kill the Dandruff Germ With the New Treatment John N.
