Copyrighted, 1909, by Associated Literary Press. ■■■ In tlie amethystine haze of an April morning on the Arizona foothills the cowboys of Circle II wheeled their bronchos into the gray dust of the trail. There was a wild jangle of spurs, a clatter of restive hoofs, and they were off like one of the brown whirlwinds of their own desert to meet Gypsy and “the boss." who were coming to the ranch to spend a week. They had derisively hurled “Arios, Layne!” at the bronzed young foreman as he leaned against the corral gate. They could not understand why he had persistently refused to join their re ception committee. It really was not the coming of Iler ington, “the boss." that was calling forth the unusual demonstration, but the return of Gypsy, their little com rade of the range, whom they had not seen for four years. It never entered their simple heads that two years of school in France, followed by two more of travel and society, might have changed their merry, fun loving little pet. She was coming back as she had promised—that was the dominant con sideration—and off they went, whoop iug. Ned Layne, however, knew different ly. lie had seen her a year ago, and the knowledge had come to him then. She was a young lady, and they—and he— were only cowboys. As he leaned against the gate he thought of the old days. He remembered her eyes and voice on the evening before she de parted into the world, and he remem bered how she had said to him; “Goodby. Ned. Father is going to give you the place of foreman. Make the most of your opportunities and buy out the Bar T. Don’t forget me, Ned,” and her eyes had been moist when she suddenly dropped them. “I’ll never forgot you, Gypsy,” he had promised stoutly, pressing the hand that fluttered in his. “When 1 come home to the ranch I want you to be hero to meet me,” she added. “I’ll be sure to meet you,” he re turned. Then the train had borne her away to the new life, so different from that among the boys on her father’s ranch. Ned Layne and Gypsy Herington had been great comrades in those care free days, and if now he was the only one not riding out to meet her it was be cause he felt that those old days were gone forever and would best be for gotten. There should he nothing on bis part to remind her of old promises and old thoughts that could have no place in her life any more. Just a year ago Layne had seen her once at a great hotel in New York, where the wealthy ranchman and his daughter wore stopping. He had gone all the way to the far eastern city for no other purpose than to see her, hut the result had been a sadly discourag ing one, and ho had said farewell to his dreams. Gypsy, dressed in a be wildering gown and moving with be wildering ease and elegance among the elegant throng that oppressed the ranchman, was on her way to the opera under escort of an immaculately clad young Englishman possessed of a big title, and Layne was left to he entertained by her father. She had asked him to come back and breakfast with them, hut her changed bearing and the cool treatment accord ed to him by the condescending noble man had nettled Layne. He took the very next train hack to the land of sunshine, where people were not proud and stuck up and did not forget old friends. On his return the cowboys of Circle II had besieged him eagerly for news of their little chum of the ranch. “Yes, I saw her,” he answered, veil ing the bitterness in his heart, “and she’s a great belle in her society togs. She has a beau. Lord Percy Ellington, one of those plug hatted chaps, and she seems to like his attentions all right. The boss says he followed them back from Europe.” Having imparted this information to the news hungry men, Ned had gone off by himself under the starlight and finally abandoned all his old plans and hopes. Ever since that night the young man had been formulating a plan for his future which he kept strictly to him self, resolved to execute the first step toward it when the owner of the ranch returned to his own again. According ly he mounted Muggins, his own pony, and rode rapidly away across the brown mesa before the party could ar rive. From an eminence his well trained eyes caught the blur of rising dust far up the trail. Nearer approach enabled him to recognize the ranch bnckboard driven by Bob Cat Nick. Seated by the driver was the trim figure of Gyp sy. while the stout form of Herington and a slender man wearing a derby occupied the back seat. Trailing be hind or galloping proudly on either side of the vehicle rode the adoring cowboys, chatting merrily with their nld friend. At sight of the derby hat a frown irossed Ned’s face, and. putting spur t the unoffending Muggins, the dis gruntled young horseman rode off down the gulch. “Ellington alongl” he exclaimed. "Yet what right have I to be surprised or care for that? No doubt Herington wants to show his prospective sou-ln law what a fine ranch he has for his daughter.” w’lien be had reached the live oak thicket quite a distance away he let Muggins rest. Throwing himself up6n he ground, he surrendered his mind co a train of miserable thoughts. He had lain'there a long time, when suddenly he was aroused from his bit ter reflections by the clatter of hoofs over the rocky trull. Pushing back his sombrero from his eyes, be looked up into the smiling face of Gypsy, seated upon Slap Dash her favorite pony. t “And this is the way you keep your promise?” she said reproachfully. He scrambled to his foot and. throw ing one arm across the saddle on his pony’s back, leaned there till he could summon self mastery. “"What do you care, Gypsy?” ho finally interrogated, his eyes stubborn ly refusing to meet hors. Some of the brightness left the girl’s face as she noted the misery on his. “Tell me what it all means, Ned.” she begged. “Why are you not your self? Why do 1 find you so changed?” “Changed? Heavens!” and he could not forbear a gesture of Impatience. “You”— “Hero,” she interrupted in the scold ing tone of her privileged girlhood, “we come all the way from New York to pay you a visit at Circle 11, arrive and find this on the table,” and she held up a letter. "What do you mean by resigning? Why do you want to leave father's ranch? lie is wild over it and sent me to find you.” “I should think Ellington might ob ject to your riding after me," ho re marked. his bronze checks reddening with scorn. “Ellington?" Then a light broke over her face. “That funny lord? Why, Lord Percy is In England long ago. Finding me too loyal an Ameri can to buy a foreign title, be ended the long siege and departed.” “Who came with you and your fa ther. then?” he inquired. “Oh, that was Cousin Cyril, who is just out <■!’ college and needs the tonic of our mrn.n tin ozone.” Slipping lightly from (lie back of Slap Dash, she came over to Nod and in her old way put both hands on his strong young shoulder. “Now, Ned,” she said, “you won’t leave Circle 11’. will you? Father needs you.” “Why did you treat me as you did in New York?” he moodily demanded evading (he question. “Before a stranger and Lord Percy at that?” asked she, laughing roguish ly. “If. sir. you had come to breakfast next morning. 1- 1 might have treated you otherwise.” lie turned, facing her squarely. With one of his strong hands he Im prisoned both of tiers and bold them against his breast. “What would you have done if—if 1 had come?” lie said breathlessly. Her lovely face went very crimson under the searchlight of his eyes, but she answered bravely, “Ned. I’d bare kissed you right out.” The foothills looked natural again. The sun shone with its old time glint and shimmer upon (he gray desert sand. lie had no longer the feverish desire to get away to fresh scenes. “I’ll stay at Circle II always, Gypsy, since you wish it.” and. taking his written resignation from her, ho tore it into fragments. “Say, sweetheart,’’ he added, putting an arm tenderly round her waist, “I’ll buy out Bar T tomorrow, and we’ll run both ranches together.” SIOOO.OO^V f Given for any substance M jurious to health found in food m resulting from the use of M I CalumetfgJ I Baking Pm!| VPowder Cream Separators Don't buy a cream separator without hein# sure you KNOW what you are (loin#. Makin# a mistake in buying a cream separator means a #reat deal it means wash of time and butterfat twice a day every day in the year, if you #et tin 1 wron# machine,—until you “scrap” the machine itself. More than 15,000 users who had made such a mistake replaced their “mistaken” machines with DE LAVAL separators during the year 1908. They had probably wasted Five Million Dollars worth of invest ment, labor and butter mean while. If you feel inclined to buy some other make of separator by all means do so, if you can find any apparently good reason for it. BUT why not TRY a DE LA VAL machine beside the other machine for ONE WEEK before you actually contract to buy it*? Simply SEE the comparative op eration and comparative results and examine the comparative construction. That’s a proposition open to every intending separator buyer. Any DE LAVAL agent will carry it out. WHY not avail of it and KNOW what you are doing before making this very important in vestment ? Don’t let any alluring “cata logue house” literature or clever talking agent wheedle you into buying any other separator with out FIRST actually TRYING it alongside a DE LAVAL. In other words, buy your sep arator intelligently and knowing ly and not on blind faith in any body’s representations. !M. T. Martin Hardware Cos. Ip OR SALE—A bedstead and two spring mat tresses.
