A FIRM DISSOLVED. BY ROBERT HARK. Even a stranger to the big town walking for the first time through London sees on the Bides of the houses many names with which he has long been familiar, llis precognition lias cost the firms those names represent much money in advertising. The stranger has had the names before hiin for years in newspapers and maga zines, on the hoardings and on boards by the railway side, paying little heed to them at the time; yet they have been indelibly impressed on his brain, and when he wishes soap or pills his lips almost automatically frame the words most familiar to them. Thus are the lavish sums spent in adver tising justified, and thus are many ex cellent publications made possible. When you come to ponder over the matter, it seems strange that there should ever be any real man behind the names so lavishly advertised; that there should be a genuine Smith or Jones whose justly celebrated medi cines work such wonders, or whose soap will clean even a guilty con science. Granting the actual exist ence of these persons and probing still further into the mystery, can anyone imagine that the excellent Smith to whom thousands of former sufferers send entirely unsolicited testimonials, or the admirable Jones whom prima donnas love because his soap pre serves their dainty complexions—can anyone credit the fact that Smith and Jones have passions like other men, have hatreds, likes and dislikes? Such a condition of things incred ible as it may appear, exists in Lon don. There are men in the metropolis, utterly unknown personally, whose names are more widely spread over the earth than the names of the great est novelists, living or doad, and these men have feeling and form like unto ourselves. There was the firm of Dauby & Strong, for instance. Tho name may mean nothing to any reader of theso pages, but there was a timo when it was well known and widely advertised, not only in England, but over the greater part of the world. They did a great business, as every firm that spends a fortune every year in adver tising is bound to do. It was in the old paper collar days. There actually was a time when the majority of men wore paper collars, and, when you come to think of it, the wonder is that the paper collar trade ever fell away as it did, when you consider with what vile laundries London is and always has been cursed. Take the Danby <fc Strong collars, for instance, advertised as being so similar to linen that only an expert could tell the difference. That was Strong's invention. Before he invented the Piccadilly collar, so-called, paper collars had a brilliant glaze that would not liuvo doccived the most recent ar rival from the most remote shire in the country. Strong devised some method by which a slight linen film was put on the paper, adding strength to the collar and giving it the appearance of the genuine article. You bought a pasteboard box containing a dozen of these dollars for something like the price you paid for the washing of half a dozen linen ones. The Danby & Strong Piccadilly collar jumped at once into great popularity, and the wonder is that the linen collar ever re covered from the blow dealt by this ingenious invention. Curiously enough, during- the time the llrra was struggling to establish it- ! self, the two members were the best of friends, but when prosperity camo to them causes of differences arose, and their relations, as the papers say of warlike nations, bccamo strained. Whether the fault lay with John Danby or with William Strong, no one has ever been able to And out. They had mutual friends who claimed that each of them was a good fellow, but each of those friends always added that Strong Si Danby did not "hit it off." Strong was a bitter man when aroused, and could generally be counted upon to use harsh language. Danby was quieter, but there was a sullen streak of stubbornness in him that did not tend to the making up of the quarrel. They had been past the speaking point for more than a year when there came a crisis in their re lations with each other that ended in disaster to the business carried on un der the title of Danby & Strong. Neither man would budge, and be tween them the business sunk to ruin. Where competition is fierce no firm can stand against it if there i 6 internal dissension. Danby held his ground quietly but firmly, Strong raged and cursed, but was equally steadfast in not yielding a point. Each hated the other so bitterly that each was willing to lose his own share in a profitable business, if by doing so he could bring ruin on his partner. We arc all rather prone to be misled by appearances. As one walks down Piccadilly, or the Strand, or Fleet street and meets numerous irreproach ably dressed men with glossy tall hats and polished boots, with affable man ners and xi courteous way of deporting themselves towards their fellows, we are apt to fall into the falacy of be lieving that these gentlemen are civi lized. We fail to realize that if you probe in the right directiou you will come upon possibilities of savagery that would draw forth the warmest commendation from a Pawnee Indian. There arc reputable business men in London who would, if they dared, tie an enemy to a stake and roast him over a slow fire, and these jnen have succeed ed so well, not only in deceiving their neighbors, but also themselves, that they would actually be offended if you told them so. If law were suspended in London for a day, during which time none of us would he held answer able for any deed then done, how many of us would lie alive next morning? Most of us would go out to pot sotr.o favorite enemy, and would doubtless be potted ourselves before we got safely home again. The law, however, is a great re- strainer, and helps to keep the death rate from reaching excessive propor tions. One department of the law crushed out the remnant of the busi ness of Messrs. tDanby & Strong, leaving the firm bankrupt, while another department of the law pre vented either of the partners taking the life of the other. When Srong found himself penniless, he cursed, as was his habit, and wrote to a friend in Texas asking if he could get anything to do over there. lie was tired of a country of law and order, he said, which was not as complimentary to Texas as it might have been, llut his remarks only go to show what ex traordinary ideas Englishmen have of foreign parts. The friend's answer was not very encouraging, but, never theless, Strong got himself out there somenow, and in course of time be came a cowboy. lie grew reasonably expert with his revolver and rode a mustang as well as could be expected, considering that he had never seen such an animal in London, even at the Zoo. The life of a cowboy on a Texas ranch leads to the forgetting of such things as linen shirts and paper collars. Strong's hatred of Danby never ceased, but ho began to think of him less often. Ono day, when he least expected it, the subject was brought to his mind in a manner that startled him. lie was in Galveston ordering supplies for the ranch, when in passing a shop which ho would have called a draper's, but which was there designated as dealing in dry goods, lie was amazed to set the name "Danby & Strong" in big letters at the bottom of a huge pile of small card-board boxes that filled the whole window. At first the name merely struck him as familiar and he came near asking himself: "Where have 1 seen that before?" It was some mo ments before ho realized that the Strong stood for the man gazing stu pidly in at the plate glass window. Then he noticed that the boxes all were guaranteed to contain the famous Piccadilly collar. He read in a dazed manner a large printed bill which stood beside the pile of boxes. These collars, it seemed, were warranted to be the genuine Danby & Strong collar and the public was warned against imita tions. They were asserted to be Lon don made and linen faced, and the gratifying information was added that once a person wore the I). & S. collar he never afterwards relapsed into wearing any inferior brand. The price of each box was fifteen cents, or two boxes for a quarter. Strong found him self making a mental calculation which resulted in turning this notation into English money. As he stood there a new interest be gan to fill his mind. Was the firm be ing carried on under tho old name by some one else, or did this lot of collars represent part of tho old stock? He had had no news from home since he left, and the bitter thought occurred to him that, perhaps, Danby had got somebody with capital to aid him in resuscitating tho business. Ho re solved to go inside and get somo infor mation. "You seem to have a very large stock of those collars on hand," he said to the man who was evidently the pro prietor. "Yes," was tho answer. "You see we are the state agents for this make. Wo supply the country dealers." "Oh, do you? Is the firm of Danby & Strong still in existence? I under stood it had suspended." "I guess not," said the man. "They supply us all right enough. Still, I really know nothing about the firm, except that they turn out a first-class article. We're not in any way respon sible for Danby & Strong; we're mere ly agents for the state of Texas, you know," tho man added, with sudden caution. "I have nothing against the firm," said Strong. "I asked because I once knew some members of it and was won dering how it was getting along." "Well, in that ease you ought to sco tho American representative. He was here this week—that's why wo make such a display in tho window, it always pleases tho agent —he's now working up the state and will bo back in Gal veston before the month is out." "What's his name? Do you remem ber?" "Danby. George Danby, I think. Here's his card. No, John Danby is the name. I thought it was George. Most Englishmen are George, you know." Strong looked at tho card, but the lettering seemed to waver before his eyes. He made out, however, that Mr. Jolin Danby had an address in New York, and that he was tho American representative of tho firm of Danby & Strong, London. Strong placed tho card on the counter before him. "I used to know Mr. Danby, and I would like to meet him. Where doyou think I could find him?" "Well, as I said before, you could seo him right here in Galveston, but if you are in a hurry you might catch him at Broncho Junction on Thursday night." "He is traveling by rail then?" "No, he is not. He went by rail as far as Felixopolis. There he takes a horse, and goes across the prairies to Broncho Junction; a three days' jour ney. I told him lie wouldn't do much bus iness on that route, but he said he was going partly for his health, and part ly to seo fthe country. Ho expected to reach Broncho Thursday night." The dry-goods merchant laughed as one who suddenly remembers a pleasant circumstance. "You're an Englishman, I take it." Strong nodded. "Weil, I must say you folks have queer notions about this country. Dan by, who was going for a three days' lourney across tho plains bought him self two Colts revolvers, and a Icnifo half as long as my arm. Now I've trav eled all over this state,and newer carried a gun, but I couldn't get Danby to be lieve his route was as safe as a church. Of course, now and then in Texas a cowboy shoots off his gun, but it's more often his mouth, and I don't be lieve there's more killing done in Tex as than in any other bit of laud tho some size. But you can't get an Eng lishman to believe that. You folks are an awful law-abiding crowd. For my part 1 would sooner stand my chance with a revolver than a lawsuit any day." Then the good-natured Texan told the story of the pistol in Texas; of the general lack of demand for it, \n\t the great necessity of having it handy when it was called for. A man with murder in his heart should not hold a conversation lileo this, but William Strong was too full of one idea to think of prudence. Such a talk sets the hounds of justice on tho right trail, with unpleasant results for the criminal. On Thursday morning Strong set out on horseback from Broncho Junction with his face towards Felixopolis. By noon he said to himself he ought to meet his former partner with nothing but the horizon around them. Besidvs the revolvers in his belt, Strong had a Winchester riflo in front of him. He did not know but he might have to shoot at long range, and it was always well to prepare for eventualities. Twelve o'clock camo, but lio inet no one, and there was nothing In sight around the empty circle of the horizon. It was nearly two before he saw a moving dot ahead of him. Danby was evidently unused to riding and had come leisurely. Some time before they met, Strong recognized his former partner anil ho got his rifle ready. "Throw up your hands!" he shouted, bringing the rifle butt to his shoulder. Danby instantly raised his hands above his head. "I have no money on me," he cried, evidently not recogniz ing his opponent. "You may search me if you like." "Get down off your horse; don't lower your hands, or I fire." Danby got down as well as ho could with his hands above his head. Strong lmd thrown his right leg over to tho left side of the horse, and, as his enemy got down, he also slid to tho ground, keeping Danby covered with the rifle. "X assure you I have only a few dol lars with me, which you are quite wel come to," said Danby. Strong did not answer. Seeing that the shooting was to bo at short range, he selected a six-shooter from his belt, and, cocking it, covered his man, throwing the rifle on tho grass. Ho walked up to his enemy, placed the muzzle of the revolver against his rap idly beating heart, and leisurely dis armed him, throwing Danby's weap ons 011 the ground out of reach. Then he stood back a few paces and looked at the trembling man. Ills face seemed to liavo already taken on tho hue of death and his lips were bloodless. "I see you rccognizo mo at last, Mr. Danby. This is an unexpected meet ing, is it not? You realize, I hope, that there arc no judges, juries nor lawyers, no mandamuses and 110 ap peals. Nothing but a writ of eject ment from the barrel of a pistol and no legal way of staj-ing the proceedings. In other words, no cursed quibbles and no confounded law." Danby, after several times moisten ing his pallid lips, found his voice; "Do you mean to give me a chance, or nrc you going to murder me?" "I am going to murder you." Danby closed his eyes, let his hand? drop to his sides, and swayed gently from side to side as a man does on the scaffold just before the bolt is drawn, fcstnpng lowered his revolver and fired, shattering one knee of tho doomed man. Danby dropped with a cry that was drowned by the second report. The second bullet put out his left eye, and the murdered man lay with lib mutilated face turned up to the blue sky. A revolver report on the prairies is short, sharp and echoless. The silence ; that followed seemed intense and boundless, as if nowhere on earth I there was such a thing as sound. The ' man on his back gave an awesome touch of tho eternal to tho stillness. Strong, now that it was all over, be gan to realize his position. Texas, perhaps, paid too little heed to life lost in fair fight, but she had an un comfortable habit of putting a rope round the neck of a cowardly mur derer. Strong was an Inventor by na ture. He proceeded to invent hi justification. He took one of Danby's revolvers and fired two shots out of it into the empty air. This would show that the deud man had defended him self, at least, and it would be difficult to prove that he had not been the first to fire, ile placed the other pistol and the knife In their places in belt. He took Danby's right hand while it was still warm and closed the fingers around the butt of the revolver from which he had fired, placing the forefinger on the trigger of the cocked six-shooter. To give effect and naturuluess to the tableau he was arranging for the benefit of the next traveler by that trail, he drew up the right knee and put i*cvolver and closed hand on it as if Danby had been killed while just about to flro his third shot. Strong, with the pride of a true artist in his work, stepped back a pace or two for the purpose of seeing the effect of his work as a whole. Ar? Danbj' fell, tho back of liia head had struck a lump of soil or a tuft of grass which threw the chin forward on the breast. As Strong looked nt his vic tim his heart jumped, and a sort of hypnotic fear took possession of him and paralyzed action at its source. Danby was not yet dead. His right eye was open, and it glared at Strong with a malice and hatred that mesmerized the murderer and held him there, al though he felt, rather than knew, that he was covered by the cocked revolver he had placed in what he thought was a dead hand. Danby's lips moved, but no sound came from them. Strong cpuld not take his fascinated gaze from the open eye. 110 knew ho was a dead man if Danby had strength to crool* his flngei*, yet he could not take the leap that would bring him out ol range. The fifth pistol shot i*ang out and Strong pitched forward on his face. Tho firm of Danby & Strong wasdis solved. Black and White. —ln 16S0 there were 234,225 miners of all kinds in this country.
