CHAPTER V.
Russia Takes the Plunge.
Merrick’s first inclination when he
realized the dastardly nature of the
outrage that had been perpetrated
upon them was to do something in
order to strike back.
Jones had. however, weighed the
situation well and knew best how to
handle it.
He had Merrick stretch out upon one
of the seats, and wdth a rug made a
very fair dummy of himself upon The
other. In the flickering, uncertain
light it would require an extraordina
rily sharp pair of eyes to discover any
thing wrong.
It chanced that while prowling
about, looking under the seats. Jones
had run across a small piece of timber
some four feet long, by as many
Inches in diameter, which, being
round, had somewhat the appearance
of a post. It was an elegant substi
tute for a battering ram.
Aind Jones welcomed its appearance
with more than a little satisfaction —
indeed, the article Itself no doubt sug
gested the legitimate use to which so
cleverly constructed a weapon should
be put.
Eagerly Jones waited, transferring
his watch back and forward from one
door to the other.
Ah! what was that —a hand at the
window, an arm raised to hold on by
some projection above!
Evidently the intruder had expected
to find the window closed —at least, ho
had come prepared for such an ob
stacle.
Jones saw It coming in time to low
er his head, when there was a crash
of glass and the whole window went
to bits.
When the job of smashing the glass
had been completed In such an heroic
manner, the face of a man appeared In
the opening.
One glance told Jones his Identity—
there could be no mistaking that yel
low head of hair and the blazing orbs
of the Russian.
If Jones had any scruples with re
gard to what he proposed doing they
never made themselves known. He
had his battering ram in readiness and
at the proper time he let It go.
The projectile struck fair and
square, and with enough power to tear
loose the insecure grip he had upon
the carriage.
Merrick heard a yell such as the
Cossack of the Don gives when he
meets his fate In the mad rush of bat
tle.
‘‘He's gone?” demanded Merrick,
who was partly in the dark as to what
had occurred, and eager for news, of
course.
"Yes—I struck him square in the
face, a tremendous blow, with this af
fair. It knocked him clear ofT the car
and the bridge. I could just see his
big figure go whirling down, with arms
and legs extended. And I heard the
splash when he struck. Ugh! it will
haunt me for many a day. I guess.”
The picture thus conjured up was
so exceedingly dramatic and full of
horror that Merrick also shuddered,
although his eyes had not beheld the
actual occurrence.
‘‘You believe the big Russian Is
dead, then?” he asked.
‘‘Oh! no. that would be too good;
but he’ll have a perfectly delightful
time getting out of the mud —I heard
him swearing after he struck.”
The excitement over they settled
down to make the best of a bad bar
gain.
Suddenly the little motor ahead be
gan to send out a series of shrill.
. agonizing screeches such as electrified
even those of strongest nerve, since
It seemed to presage a dreadful catas
trophe.
Jones and Merrick unconsciously
sprang to their and the former
made as though to thrust his head out
' to see what was coming; but ere he
could do so there came a shock that
sent them both sprawling against the
cushioned back of the forward seat.
When Jones and his comrade thus
scrambled about among the cushions
and small luggage in the endeavor to
maintain some decent sort of equili
brium. they knew full well that some
thing out of the ordinary had happen
ed.
Perhaps accidents are far less fre
quent on European railways than is
the case in America, where greater
hazards are taken in making speed;
but nevertheless they do occur at
times, and with just as fearful conse
quences.
A hasty examination gave Merrick
and Jones the pleasing Information
that beyond a few contusions of small
moment they had not suffered any
damage from the accident.
Apparently there were others who
could not lay claims to such luck.
At any rate, the death'-llke silence
that had followed the last grand crash
w*as succeeded by cries of terror,
shrieks and the hoarse voices of
alarmed men calling for assistance.
These appealed to the Inmates of
kthe carriages where disaster had sot
more lightly —when did cries for help
ever sound in vain In the ears of men
who were of the Anglo-Saxon race?
Jones, forcing a door, crawled out
side, followed by his comrade.
A scene of turmoil and confusion
presented itself such as they must re
member long.
From the windows and smashed
doors of the wrecked carriages men
and women were crawling with almost
ludicrous* haste, like terrified bees es
caping from a hive into which the
smoke of tobacco has been injected.
Jones was u man equal to the occa
sion.
Whenever he saw a head he sprang
to the rescue.
Some were bruised and cut more or
less, for the shake-up had been pretty
rough, and flying glass carries danger
with it; but it seemed as though by
the mercy of Providence there were to
be no futal casualties.
While he worked, Jones was endeav
oring to solve the problem as to how
this had happened, so when he reach
ed the vicinity of the overturned mo
tor. he began a search for the driver.
If he had stuck by his engine the
chances were that he must be under
neath the helpless mouster and beyond
all hope of saving.
Presently, however, a voice address
ed him in French, and calmly begged
that he would lend a hand toward res
cue; and turning, he beheld a man
who. from his garb, he knew must
have been on the motor, pinned {town
by a heavy wooden beam or log.
It was the work of but a minute to
extricate the man. and as Jones sur
mised. he turned out to he the engine
driver.
He was bruised and sore, but gave
thanks that no bones seemed broken.
When Jones had hastily questioned
him with the facility of a lawyer, all
he discovered was that the alarm had
been given when the driver found he
was swooping directly down upon a
pile of logs that had been purposely
placed upon the track, with the inten
tion of stopping the Nice express, and
upon which a red lantern had been
placed, but which signal was seen at
such short range that there was not
time to bring the train to a stop,
though he made a desperate attempt to
do so —his stoker had jumped, but he
remained on his motor to see the logs
fly in every direction and then And
himself pinned under one, ten yards
away from the track.
At least Jones had satisfied himself
there was no accident but dark design
back of the wreck.
What he had learned made him un
easy. If robbery was intended those
who took so desperate a means of ac
complishing their purpose might
doubtless be found looting the wrecked
coaches even now.
He started the cry of alurm and
sent it along—every man became
aroused by the possibility of new dan
ger and for the time being their hurts
and losses gave way before the possi
bility of marauders coming from the
birder of Italy.
There were other chances, political
ones. France was inwardly seething—
Royalists were unceasingly plotting to
bring about a crisis whereby the army
might swing over to their cause, and
as the army went so the people would
incline.
Some Important dignitary In mufti
might be on board this train, whose
capture would be a feather in the cap
of the plotters.
Stranger things have happened In
France ere now.
Jones, who had evolved this clever
explanation from his brain, looked
around to see if he could not And cor
roboration.
And yet he was more or less startled
when he did actually discover moving
figures among the trees and rocks,
figures of men carrying guns, and who
had apparently remained hidden until
now for some reason or other.
That they were brigands their num
ber and military precision of move
ment seemed to veto.
Jones dropped behind a rock and
concluded to watch the game—he did
not believe it was any of his funeral,
but all the same it paid to be on the
safe side.
Now. if they would only lay hands
on the count, for instance, and carry
him ofT, no on© would shed many
tears.
To Jones' surprise, however, he saw
plain signals pas 3 between the grim
leader of the marauders and the man
from Africa’s burning sands, which
proved that honest Count Leon him
self was in sympathy with the secret
movement not to overthrow the repub
lic, and place the Royalists again in
power..
The distressed passengers huddled
together like a flock of frightened
sheep, while some of the armed men
stood on guard others scrutinized each
group, and a few more searched the
carriages. doubtless appropriating
what loose valuables they discovered.
He who seemed to be a leader drew
the count aside and sternly covered
him with a pistol while he asked a few
questions in a low voice.
Then he went direct to a carriage
that had escaped injury, as though
directed thither, and dragged there
from an individual who came forth
very unwillingly.
Quickly this party made an efTort at
defense, but was set upon by several
of the marauders, disarmed and made
a prisoner.
Then sharp commands were given,
the armed men fell into line, and while
the travelers still huddled about the
fires, the mysterious force vanished as
strangely as* it had come, among the
trees and rocks that marked that
mountainous section.
Meanwhile Mark Merrick was also
engaged in playing with fortune's
favors.
When Jones set such a charming
example of man’s nobility, by rushing
hither and yon. pulling unlucky pas
sengers out of their predicament, the
younger man, urged on by similar mo
tives, started in the other direction.
lie worked like a Trojan, for the
cries that came from the lips of fright
ened women gave him the impression
that the catastrophe might be even
more serious than .is yot i ppeared.
Among the women was one who
seemed more deeply Interested in
watching the quick, nervous actions or
young Merrick than in lamenting the
loss of her finery, as some of the other
damsels were doing.
This sclf-possesred young person
was petite in figure, and wholly angel
ic in appearance—ln fact, she was no
other than the girl fro» the Trans
vaal, the owner of unnumbered dia
mond mines. Little Miss Millions.
Of course Merrick was doing his beat
to make the ladies comfortable.
He invaded a carriage, secured all
lie could, ami having lugged it to the
fire, demanded an owner, who eagerly
put in a claim.
All was proceeding well when for
the first time he set eyes upon the faco
of Constance Dare.
As before, when he had seen her in
the Pnrislain carriage, her appearance
gave him a shock, for he stood quite
still, holding ills breath, and passing
one hand over Ills forehead as though
in doubt whether he were really awako
or dreaming.
Then he was thrilled by the con
sciousness that her eyes searching
about hither and yon for something,
had become fastened on him.
She raised her hand as if involun
tarily—slie beckoned eagerly that ho
approach, and ns one in a dream Mark
Merrick walked on to his fate —ho
could not have hnd the power to re
fuse even though sure destruction lay
under his feet. For Love is mightier
than cold Reason, and there was that
in his past to warrant blind obedience
when that little hand bade him no
longer hold back.
Once he started Merrick's reluctance
vanished, and the blank look of
amazement upon his face also gave
way to eagerness.
And so he came to where she stood,
this girl, who had once before been
such a factor in the molding of his
life.
Constance had extended a little hand
—he did not see it. so eagerly were his
eyes drinking in every well remember
ed lineament of her features, with the
mocking memories they stirred into
life dancing before him.
She smiled now. smiled with pleas
ure, and the rosy flush had crept down
to her very neck.
"Mark —Mr. Merrick —how strange
that we should meet again and under
such stormy conditions. It secniß
fated that we can only come together
under the shadow of danger.”
Mark found his voice—and her
hand.
"Dear Heaven, but I am glad to see
you, Constance. You come to me aa
one from the dead. I have mourned
you ns gone from this world, and
even now I have hard work to believe
my senses,” he said, pressing her hand
in both his own.
"You are a little glad then?" she
asked.
"Glad —I am —well, never mind what
my condition of mind is. You can
surely judge of it by the look in my
eyes. God be praised for sparing you.
It la wonderful, marvelous even. 1
cannot dream how it could have hap
pened."
"This is neither the time nor place
for an explanation, nor am 1 wholly
sure in my mind that you will care
very much to hear what wonderful
things have happened to me since that
day," she said.
Merrick was quick to reaffirm his
eager desire to hear her story.
“Only when you are ready, Con
stance. As you say, the time and
place are neither of them propitious.
Just now I am only too glad to know
you are alive and well, and Htill Con
stance Dare." •
There was a significance in these
last words that did not fail to catch
her attention.
What did ho mean?
Had he believed she preferred some
other to himself, and that whether
living or dead she was lost to him?

LESSLER'S STORY ABOUT CHOATE
Oreat Liirjer Aak«i<l for In for mutton
About Trial I’rocordlni;.
Mr. Montague Lessler has still an
other story on Ambassador Choate,
which he declares is a little newer
than the first ascribed to him.
••One*.,*' said the agile and capable
New Yorker, "I was attorney for peo
ple with interests opposed to those of
the Standard Oil company. There was
a preliminary examination of some of
the magnates of that company, includ
ing Mr. Rockefeller. Finally some of
Mr. Choate’s clients were drawn into
the controversy, and they refused to
answer the questions I put to them.
The tangle become very intense, and
it was necessary to have a long argu
ment before the judge. At that time
Mr. Choate himself was in New Jer
sey arguing a Tobacco Trust case, and
we had to postpone our case for over a
week. Oh. my! how I studied and
fortified myself for the argument
against the great Choate. Certainly,
you can imagine bow I worked.
"Well, tho day arrived. Mr. Choate
came. They pulled him off in one cor
ner of the room and poured a lot of
talk in his car. Then [ spoke for
about an hour and a half, making the
effort of my life, and Mr. Choate fol
lowed for about «u houi\
“Ttye following evening Mr. Choate
was to deliver au address before the
College of the City of New York,
where I was educated. I attended. Mr.
Chogte sitting down was quite as tall
a3 I was standing.
"How are j'cu, Montague?” said he,
putting his arm around me affection
ately. "Please tell me what all that
fuss was about which we argued yes
terday.”

(Janie Commissioner Harris received
from Hie attorney general an opinion

not unlive to Colorado. Acting on the
advice of the attorney general and in
order to avoid unnecessary litigation
the game warden will return the heads

heads and two Alaska sheep heads.
Tlie attorney general holds that the law
means to prohibit the importation of
game from one state to another for
tnxldermie purposes, and that by the
same rule it cannot he taken out. He
holds that wild goats are not game
quadrupeds and can therefore be killed
anywhere and everywhere.
The Denver Republican of August
r.th lias the following report: The
A "tilt Ing Board of tin* state of Colo
rudo, composed of State Auditor Crout
er. Attorney (Jenernl C. C. Dost and
Governor .James B. Orman, yesterday
afternoon decided to pay the outstand
ing debt of tin* state incurred under
tie- administration of Governor Charles
S. Thomas, for the purpose of conduct
ing the state penal institutions, the
asylum anil the State University at
Boulder. Mr. Crouter insisted to the
last and so voted that the state could
not lawfully pay this money to the
Denver clearing house banks and
those persons of Boulder, who loaned
money to the state. The other two
mouthers of the board, however, could
see no reason why this debt should
not lie paid. Elglity-six thousand dol
lar' of the sum due tin* Denver clear
ing house hanks will be paid immed
iatoly, and the $20,000 due to private
parties will also he pair immediately,
wli le the other $20,000 which is still
duo the Denver clearing house hanks
will lie paid at the discretion of the
Im ird. The money to lie used for tills
purpose will bo taken from the funds
that came into the possession of the
state government, and It is. therefore,
pa'sed at the «<*ssion of tin* Thirteenth
«; oral Assembly. Under the terms
of t lie net It is provided that $251,. r >00
was to be used as incidental and con
tingent expenses of the executive, leg
islative and judicial departments of tin
state government, and it ies, therefore,
argued that tin* state lias the right to
pat tills amount to tin* Denver clear
ing bouse banks out of tills fund. Un
der the Thomas administration it be
came necessary through the lack of
.appropriation on the part of the Legis
lature for the maintenance of tin* state
penal Institutions, and for the con tin
uam-cof the State University at Bould
er to secure money to run these Insti
tutions. No funds were available, so
it uas borrowed on the credit of tin*
state from the Denver clearing house
banks and citizens. There was no se
curity given for tills money except the
e red it of the state in general. Recent
ly the banks have demanded that they
he paid. 'Pile meeting of the auditing
board has been postponed from time to
time and yesterday was the first op
portunity the board had to act on tills
d< i mil. Auditor Crouter lias Insisted
that tlds money could not be paid un

tions passed by the board yesterday
state that as under the Short nppro
1 print ion act certain moneys were ob
tained for the purpose of paying Inci
dent.il and contingent expenses of the
several departments of the state, and
1 as $231,500 of said appropriation was

LAND OF SHEPHERDS
LARGE FLOCKS OF PALESTINE.
They Graze on the Hills on Both Sides
of the Jordan—Shepherds Resem
ble Those Described in the Bible—
Sheep Intimately Connected With
the History offhe Holy Land.
The Holy Land is a shepherd's coutt
try and abounds in sheep. The hills on
both sides of the Jordan are covered
with flocks and at this time of the year
they find excellent grazing. writes a
recent traveler Hi the East. As we
ride along through tills part of Pales
tine wo often moot large flocks upon
tlielr way from the far interior, tin*
ranges in the valley of the Euphrates,
“from the other side of Jordon, from
the green fields of Eden.” which are
being driven for sale to the sea coast.
It is customary for the shepherds of
the interior to select a certain portion
of their flocks for tills purpose in the
spring of each year. In dress, man
ners, language and customs, the shep
herds closely resemble those of Abra
ham, Isaac ;rnd Jacob, and they handle
their drove in the same way. “putting
a space betwixt drove and drove," as
Jacob did and leading the young lambs
softly.
If overdriven the animals are likely
to die and at least their flesh will be
worthless for mutton. The weary ones
nre sold on the wayside or are killed
and eaten by the shepherds themselves.
The flocks grow smaller as they go
farther south, because ut nearly every
village and town and often at the farm
ing settlements a few nre sold. Pales
tine lias always lieen a great place
for sheep. The Bible tells us that Job
had a flock of 14,000; Solomon sacri
ficed 120,000 sheep at the dedication
of the temple; when Moses overcame
Midlun the spoils of battle were fiOO.-
000 sheep, 72,000 cattle, and 01,000
asses; the King of Moab gave the King
of Israel ns tribute annually lOu.OOO
lambs and 100,000 rams, with their
wool.
Nor will these figures seem excessive
when considered in connection with the
enormous wool Industry of Palestine
to-day. More than 10,000,000 pounds
of wool are exported annually from
Beyroot. From the neighboring sea
ports it Is the principal export and
from Jaffa they send about £100.000 in
values each year. When the children
of Israel entered the promised laud
the tribe of Beubeii and Had. who had
a large multitude of cattle, recognized
the value of these pastures and asked
for them. It was here that Christ got
the ideas for his parables concerning
the sheep; here he first called himself
the Hood Shepherd and looking be
yond the plains to the vineyards upon
the hillside, he called himself the True
Vine. Here we see the sweetest poetry
of Jewish life, the loveliest pictures
that have ever been pointed concern
ing the pastoral habits of tile pimple
and any traveler who drives through
that region will realize the Influence
of shepherd life upon the Jewish imag
ination.
