Burning Daylight makos n sensationally rnpld run across country with tho mall, appears nt tho Tlvoll and Is now ready to Join hli friends In a dnsh to tho now gold fields. Deciding that gold will bo it buys two tons of flour, which ho declares will bo orth Its weight In gold, but whon ho nrrlvos with tils flour ho .finds thn Mir tint rioenlntn. A eomrado dlSOOV era gold and Daylight reaps a rich liar vest. Ho goes to Dawson, becomes tho most prominent figure In tho Klondike and defeats a combination of capitalists In a vast mining deal. Ho returns to civilization, and. amid tho bewildering complications of high finance, Daylight finds that he has beon led to Invest his eleven millions In a manipulated scheme. Ho frees to Now York, and confronting his disloyal partners with a rovolver, he threatens to kill them It his money Is not roturncd. Thoy aro cowed, return their stealings and Harnlsh goes back to San Frnnclnco whoro ho meets his fato In Dedo Mason, a pretty stenogrnpher.

JJayngnt geis aeeper inio iiikii llghl Ft: flnancn In San Francisco, but often tho longing for tho simple life nearly ovor comos him. Dede Mason buys a horso and Daylight meets her In nor saddle trips. Ono day he asks Dedo to go with him on ono mora rldo. his purposo being to ask her to marry him and thoy canter away, sho trying to nnalyzo her feelings. Dedo tells Daylight that her happiness could not Ho with a money manipulator. Daylight undortakes to build up a great Industrial community. He Is Insistent thut sho marry him and yot hopes to win her. Daylight falls back Into his old drinking ways. Thero Is a flurry In tho money market, but Daylight tolls Dedo that ho Is going to work on a ranch and prove to her that he has reformed. CHAPTER XX. Continued. Two days Inter, Daylight stood wait lug outside tho little Glen. Ellen hotel. Tho ceremony was. ovor, and ho had left Dede to go Insldo and change Into her rldlng-hahlt while ho brought tho horses. Ho hold them now, Boh and Blab, and In tho shadow of tho watering-trough Wolf lay and looked on. Already two days of ardent Cali fornia sun and touched with new fires the ancient bronze in Daylight's face. But warmer still was tho glow that came Into his cheeks and burned In his eyes as he saw Dedo coming out tho door, rldlng-whlp In hand, clad in the" familiar corduroy skirt and leg gings of tho old Plodtnont days. There wns warmth and glow In her own face as she answered his gaze and glanced on past him to the horses. Then sho saw Mab. But her gazo leaped back to the man. "Oh, Elam!" sho breathed. Many persons, themselves city-bred, and city reared, have fled to the soil and succeeded (in winning great happiness. In such cases they have succeeded only by going through a process of savage disil lusionment But with Dede and Day light it was different. They had both been born on the soil, and they knew Its naked simplicities and rawer ways. They ,"ero Hko two persons, after far wandering, who had merely come homo again. Thero was less of tho unexpected in their dealings with na ture, while theirs was all tho delight of reminiscence. What might appear sordid and squalid to tho fastidiously reared, waa to them .eminently whole some and natural. The commerce of nature was to them no unknown and untried tratia. They raado fowor mis takes. They already knew, and It was a Joy to re:nembor what they had for gotten. And another thing they learned was that it was easier for ono who hns gorged at the flesh-pots to content himself with tho mcagronoss of a cruBt, than for ono who ha3 known only tho nrust. Not that thoir llfo was moagr. It was that thoy found kocner delights and deeper satisfac tions In Httlo things. Daylight, who had played the gamo in Its biggest and most fantastic aspects, found thnt hero, on tho slopes of Sonoma Mountain, it was still the same old game. Man had still work to porform, forcos to combat, obstacles to over come. When ho experimented In a small way at raising a fow pigeons for market, he found no less zost in calculating In Bquabs than formerly whon ho had calculated in millions. Achievement was no less achieve ment, while the process of It seomod mora rational and rocolvod the sanc tion of his reason. Tho domestic cnt that had gono ,wlld and that preyed on his pigeons, bo found, by tho comparatlvo stand ard, to he of no less paramount men acq than a Charles Kllnkner in the Hold of finance, trying to raid him for several millions. The hawks nnd woasols and 'coonu wero so many IDowsetts, Lettona, nnd Guggonbara mora that struck at him secretly. Tho eoa of wild vegotut.'on hat tossed its surf against tho boundaries of all his oloarings and that sometimes crept In and flooded in a slngla week waa no mean onomy to contend with and sub duo, His fat-Bollod vogotablegardon In the nook of hills that railed of tta best waa a problem of engrossing lm jrortauce, nnd when ho had solved It by putting in dralntlte, tho joy of tho achlovetuont was ovor with him. Ho nover worked In it and found the soil unpacked and tractablo without ex periencing tho thrill of accomplish ment. There wns tho matter of tho plumb ing. Ho wns onabled to purchase tho matorlals through a lucky solo of n number of his hair bridles. Tho work ho did himself, though more than onco he was forced to call in Dedo to hold tight wJth a plpo-wronch. And In tho end, when tho bath-tub and tho sta tionary tubs wore installed and in working order, ho could scarcely tear himself away from tho contemplation of what his hands bad wrought. Tho first evening, missing him, Dedo sought and found him, lamp In hand. staring with silent gleo at tho tubs. Ho rubbed his hand over their smooth woodon lips and laughed aloud, and was as shamo-facod as any boy whon sho caught him thus secrotly exulting In his own prowess. It was this adventure in wood-working nnd plumbing that brought about the building of the littlo workshop. whore he slowly gathered a collection of loved tools. And he, who in tho old days, out of his millions, could purchaso Immediately whatever ho might deslro, loomed tho now joy of the possession that follows upon rigid economy and desire long delayed. Ho waited thrco months beforo daring the "Say," Ho Called Out, "I'd extravagance of a Yankoo screw-driver, and blB glco In tho marvelous lit tle mechanism was so keen that Dedo conceived forthright a great Idea. For six months sho saved her egg-money, which was hors by right of allotment, and on his birthday prosentcd him with o turning-lathe of wonderful sim plicity and multifarious efficiencies. And their mutual delight in tho lathe, which wns his, was onfy equalled by their delight in Mob's first foal, which was Dodo's special prlvato property. Daylight had made no nsscrtton of total abstinence, though he had not takon a drink for months after tho dny be resolved to let hi a business go to smash. Soon ho proved himself strong enough to dare to tako a drink without taking a second. On tho other hond, with his coming to live in the country, bad passed all do sire and nood for drink, He folt no yearning for it, and even forgot that It existed. Yet he refused to be afraid of It, and In town, on occasion, whon invited by tho storekeeper, would reply: "All right, son. If my taking a drink wilt raako you happy, here goes. Whisky for mlno." But such a drink bogat no' deslro for a second. It mado no impression. Ho waa too profoundly strong to be effected by a thimbleful, As he had prophesied to Dede, Burning Daylight, tho city financier, bad died a quick death on the ranch, and hli younger r s. xirWwf'lf, n i(tMWWm r V y mSt iff ivUm IHa ackTpndon mwo? or T IfflffSm f rtlMV, (Copyright. 1910, by tho New Vork Herald Company.)

Tho threatened inundation of fat had subsided, and nil his old-time Indian leanness nnd llthencss of musclo hnd returned. So, likewise, did tho old slight hollows In his checks come back. For him thoy indicated tho pink of physical condi tion. Ho becamo tho acknowledged strong, man of Sonoma Valley, tho heaviest lifter and hardest winded among a husky raco of farmer folk. At first, when In need of ready cash, ho had followed Ferguson's cxamplo of working at day's labor; but ho was not long In gravitating to a form of work thnt was more stimulating and moro satisfying, nnd that allowed him oven moro time for Dedo and tho ranch nnd the perpotunl riding through tho hills. v Having been chnllonged by tho blncksmlth, in n spirit ol banter, to attempt tho breaking of a certain incorrigible, colt, ho succeeded so sig nally as to earn quite a reputation 03 a horse-breaker. And soon ho was ablo to earn whatever money ho de sired at this, to him, agreeable work. His llfo was eminently wholcsomo and natural. Early to bed, he Blept Hko an infant and was up with the dawn. Always with something to do, and with a thousand little things thnt enticed but did not clamor, he wns himself nover ovordono. Nevertheless, thero were times wben both he nnd Dede was not above confessing tired ness at bedtime of ter seventy or eighty miles in the saddle. Sometimes, wben ho had accumulated a littlo money, and when the season favored, thoy would mount their horses, -with saddle-bags behind, and ride away ovor the wall of tho volley and down Into the other valleys. Like to Tackle You Again.' Ono day, stopping to mail a letter at the Glon Ellen postofflce, thoy wero hailed by the blacksmith. "Say, Daylight," he said, "a young fellow named Slosson sends you bis regards. Ho came through in an auto on tho way to Santa Rosa. Ho wnntod to know If you didn't Hvo horenhouts, but the crowd with him was in a hur ry. So ho sent you his rcgnrds and said to toll you he'd taken your ad vice and wns Btlll going on breaking his own record." Daylight had long since told Dedo of the incident. "Slosson?" ho meditated, "Slosson? That must be the hnrnmer-thrower. Ho put my hand down twice, tho young scamp." Ho turned suddenly to 'Dodo. "Say, it's only twelve miles to Santa Rosa, and the horses are fresh." She divined what was in his mind, of which bis twinkling eyes and sheep ish, boyish grlu gave sufficient adver tisement, and she smiled and nodded ncquloscenso. "We'll cut across by Bennett Val ley," bo said. "It's nearer that way." Thero was littlo difficulty, once In Santa Robo, of finding Slosson. Ha and his party had registered at the Oborlln Hotel, and Daylight encoun tered the young hammer-thrower him self in the office, "Look here, son," Daylight announc ed, as son as bo had lntrluod Dede, If Wlr 55 di- cmi or mrwiD. f ClfTI II I diimf Tf Iml U. "I've corao to go you another fluttor at thnt hand game. Hero's a likely place." Slosson smiled and nccopted. Tho two men fnced each other, tho elbows of their right nrms on tho counter, tho hands clasped. Slosson's hand quick ly forced backward and down. "You're the first man that ovor suc ceeded In doing It," ho said. "Let's try It again." "Sure," Daylight answered. "And don't forget, son, that you're the first man that put mine down. That's why I lit out nftcr yoii todny." Again they clasped hands, and again Slosson's hand went down. Ho was a brond-shoulder-od, heavy-mus cled young giant, at least half a head taller than Daylight, and he frankly expressed his chagrin and asked for a third trial. This time he steeled him self to the effort, and for a moment tho issue was In doubt. With flushed face and set teeth he met the other's strength till his crackling muscles failed him. Tho air exploded sharply from his tensed lungs, as ho relaxed in surronder. and the' hand dropped limply down. "You'ro too many for me," ho con fessed. "I only hope you'll keep out of tho hammer-throwing gamo." Daylight laughed and shook his head. "Wo might compromise, and each stay in his own class. You stick to hammer-throwing, and I'll go on turn ing down hands." But Slosson refused to accept de feat. "Say," ho called out, as Daylight and Dede, astride their horses, -were preparing to depart. "Say do you mind If I look you up next year? I'd Hko to tackle you again." "Sure, son. You'ro welcome to a flutter any time. Though I give you fair warning that you'll have to go some. You'll have to train up, for I'm plowing and chopping wood and break ing colts these days." Now and again, on the way homo, Dede could hear her big boy-husband chuckling gleefully. As they halted their horses on tho top of the divide out of Bennett Valley, In order to watch the sunset, he ranged alongside and slipped his arm around her waist. "Little woman," he said, "you'ro sure responsible for It all. And I leave It to you, if nil tho money In creation Is worth as much as one arm like that when it's got a sweet littlo woman Hko this to go around." Daylight's steadfast contention was that his wife should not become cook, waitress, and chambermaid because she did not happen to possess a house hold of servants. On the other hand, chafing-dish suppers in the big living- room for their camping guests wero a common happening, at which times Daylight allotted them their chores and saw that they were performed. For one who stopped only for the night It was different. Likewise it was different with her brother, back from Germany, and again able to sit a horse. On his vacations he became the third In the family, and to him was given tho building of tho fires, the sweeping, and the washing of the dishes. (TO BE CONTINUED.) MUSIC AS CURATIVE AGENT Singing Teaches Correct Breathing and Lively Waltzes Have Good Ef fects on Melancholia Patients. Two English physicians of promt nence have recently asserted that tbo exercise given to tho lungs in singing Is valunblo in the prevention and cure of diseases of those organs. They consider that increased professional recognition should be extended to this special therapeutic agency, ns advis able In cases where pulmonary con sumption is feared. Singing Involves correct nasal breathing, and this means that tha air admitted to tho lungs is prac tlcallygerm freo, and also the ade quate d'evelopment of tho upper por tions of tbo respiratory passages. An other effect Is the maintenance of the elasticity and proper expansion of tho chest. Tho necessary breathing exor cises mean increased functional ac tivity or the lungs. Thon, thero is tho Improved oxygenation of the blood, which singing necessarily pro motes. As we know, most singers and also thoso musicians who perform on wind- instruments are n healthy looking lot. Not many years from now music will bo recognized as a most valuable cur atlvo agent, especially In enses of In sanity or morbidity. What tired, over wrought, distressed man or woman does not know tho value of music. How many beautiful storios could be told of tho power of music to sustain nnd restrain?
