John Kenwood emigrated from
England 12" years before, and he was
now the sole owner of the Lone
Mountain Ranch, where one evening
he sat smoking with his friend, Mat
"You have come at just the right
time, old chap." said Kenwood, in an
swer to a remark of Quin's, "A couple
of pumas have been carying off my
sheep lately, and I'll help you to bag
them, if it can be done. And if you
care for other sport-man-hunting, for
instance-you can try your hand at
Black Barton. the highwayman, who
is operating in this end of the Terril
tory. He has held up four stage
coaches in as many weeks. I'm afraid
he's too cunning to be caught, though
there is a heavy reward offered for
him, dead or alive."
"I shan't trouble Black Barton," re.
plied Quin, "but I want those pumas
badly. Hamrach & Co. have an or
der for them."
The puma-or California lion, as it
is sometimes called-is a large, tawny,
yellow beast, larger than a panther,

ferocity, But the pair that lurked in

Quin set to work. Within a week the
female puma was taken in a cleverly
constructed box-trap baited with a
freshly killed lamb. A brace of kitten
ish cubs, found in a rocky den half
way up a precipice, shared their
A warm, sunny morning, several
days later, witnessed the departure of
Kenwood's guest for the little settle
ment of Peak City, 40 miles to the
southeast, which was connected by
stage with the nearest point on the
railway. A large four-wheeled vehi
cle, drawn by a pair of mules, was in
charge of Rube Darrell, a strapping
big fellow of the cowboy type, loud
voiced, but sound at the bottom. The
forepart of the wagon was heaped
with bales of wood, and the puma and
her cubs, confined in a stout wooden
box, occupied the rear.
A tight clasp of the hands and a
few quiet words of farewell marked
the parting between Kenwood and
Quin. The latter climbed to the nar
row seat of the vehicle beside the
driver, and examined the fastenings of
a leather bag that was strapped round
his chest underneath his coat. It con
tained some hundreds of dollars, in
gold and notes, that he had consented
to take charge of for his friend as far
as Peak City, where it was to be
turned over to a branch of a New York
"Keep your eyes peeled for Black
Barton, old man," he said, with a
smile. "He shan't get your money,"
vowed Quin, patting the stock of his
revolver. "I'll take care of that all
The crack of Rube Darrell's whip
cut into the conversation and sent the
mules off at a trot. All went well un
til early in the afternoon, when a
heavy rain came up. At sunset the
travelers descended to the valley of
the Deer river, a tributary of the Yel
lowstone, and were dismayed to find
it a muddy, raging torrent, several
feet above its normal level.
"Confound that storm," exclaimed
Darrell. "But the flood will go down
just about as quick as it rose, if you
care to wait a couple of hours. If
not, why, I reckon I can find the ford.
What do you say, pardner?"
Quin hesitated. Peak City was 10
miles further on, and just across the
river the road threaded a narrow,
rugged gorge with steep hills on either
side. He was reluctant to go through
this after dark, nor did he like the
idea of spending the night where he
was; Kenwood's bag of money was
not a light responsibility.
"What is your opinion?" he asked.
"I think we can do it, pardner," was
"Then go ahead!"
The mules plunged into the swirl
ing, yellow tide. For a third of the
distance they kept to the fording.
Then they deviated, tried to struggle
on until the wagon swung round, and
the water surged over the bottom
"It's no use-we'll never make the
shore." cried Darrell. "Stick where
you are, pardner. I must give the
poor beasts a chance for their lives."
With that, drawing his knife, the
plucky fellow leaped dowh upon the
submerged pole, and with a few
strokes he' succeeded in cutting the
mules loose from the traces.
Meanwhile Quin was chiefly con
cerned for the safety of his compan
ion and of the pumas. The wagon
floating lightly down the stream, sud
denly struck a narrow bar of grass
and gravel that lay in mid-channel,
then over it went, and off .slid the
bales of cotton and the box of pumas.
A quick jump saved Quln and Dar
rell from a thorough wetting, and
landed them hip deep. The two fought
their way ashore, and shook their
The thought of the pumas sent
Quin hurriedly back to the upper end
of the bar, with Darrell at his heels.
The cubs were whimpering with
fright and discomfort and the dam
was in a ferocious mood.
The sun was below the horizon now,
and darkness came on quickly. In a
little hollow of the island, 20 feet or
so from the stranded box, some res
cued bales of cotton were placed in
a semi-circle to keep off the keen
night wind. Then, having eaten the
few biscuits that remained from their
lunch, the castaways made themselves
as comfortable as possible, and in
spite of their wet clothing they pres
ently fell asleep.
Bome time later-it must have been
near mldnight-Quln awoke, feeling
restless and uneasy. He heard a
horse neigh over by the mouth of the
gorge, and the next moment, as he
glanced suspiciously about, he per
ceived, throu;gh the dim gloom, sever
al dark objects approaching the lower
point of the, island from the south side
of the river. It was the work of an

"Four of them," muttered Darrell,
as he peered over the breastwork of
cotton bajes. "It's Black Barton and I
his lot. They must know about the I
money, and they intended to hold us I

Quin had kept his two loaded re
volvers dry, and he gave one to his
companion. By this time the lantrud
ers had gained the point of-the inland,
and were creeping forward along the

"Who are you?"

Just then a bullet tore the revolver
from Quin's grasp, and $is numbed

instant later Darrell clutched at his
chest, rolled over limply, and lay quite
still. That the poor fellow was dead
Quin did not doubt. He had no more
cartridges, but there was no time to
"I must try to escape," he decided.
"It's the only chance of saving the
money, and my life as well."
As he turned and fled, bending low,
he was Been. A couple of bullets
whizzed by him. He gained the box
by a rapid movement, unbolted the
heavy wooden door and threw it open,
and then dashed on to the wagon.
Looking back from behind this shelter
he saw the liberated puma make a
fying leap that landed it on the breast
of the foremost of the three despera
does, who had sprung over the barri
cade in chase of the fugitive. With
screams of rage and terror-a chorus
to turn one's blood cold-man and
beast fell together on the sand. The
former's companions drew back in
panic, making no effort to help him.
This was Quin's opportunity. He
left the stony bed of the river, mount
ed to the mouth of the gorge, and
quickly discovered what he sought

Three of them he was compelled to
abandon, as he had no knife with
which to sever the lariats. By the
time he had untied the one, and
swung into the saddle, his enemies
were dangerously near. He rode at
a gallop up the narrow defile, and at
intervals, as he spurred on, he heard
the clattering sounds of pursuit far
in his rear. But these presently faded
away, and unbroken silence reigned
It was 3 o'clock in the morning
when Quin roused the sleeping inhabi
tants of Peak City to listen to his
thrilling story. He put Kenwood's
money in safe hands, and was soon
escorting a party of armed and mount
ed men back to the scene of the fight.
They found Darrell alive, but un
conscious, with a bullet through his
chest. The puma was dead, stabbed
to the heart with a knife, and close
by was the torn and mangled body of
Black Barton-for he was promptly
identified as that much-wanted indi
vidual. After inflicting the fatal
thrust of the enraged animal, he had
himself succumbed from loss of blood.
Face downward on the pebbles at the
edge of the island lay the ruffian who
had fallen at the first volley. The two
remaining highwaymen had evidently
not returned to learn the fate of their
leader, and they must have wasted no
time in getting out of the Territory,
as they were never apprehended.
It may be said in conclusion that
one of Kenwood's ranchmen, who dis
appeared soon after the tragedy, was
strongly suspected of having informed
the bandits that Quin was taking the
bag of money to Peak City.-New

Nlapoleon's Human Checkers.
Lord Rosebery's fascinating "Na
poleon: The Last Phase," furnishes
the text for an editorial in the Ced
A part of Napoleon's misunderstand
ing of human nature was his misun
derstanding of the national spirit-as
professor Sloane expresses it, 'his
contempt for nationality." On this
subject there is an interesting pas
sage in Lord Rosebery's book:
"Whom God wishes to destroy, says
the adage, he first deprives of sanity.
And so we see Napoleon, with incred
ible self-delusion, want of insight, or
both. preparing his own destruction
by dealing with men as if they were
checkers, and moving them about the
board according to his ownmomentary
whim, without a thought of their pas
sionns or character of traditions; in a
word, by ignoring human nature.
All this "cutting and carving" Na
poleon did without the slightest re
Igard for "the exasperation of the
transferred souls." Moreover. by his
mania for moving boundaries and
a'diting realms, he created a feeling
Sof impermanence and insecurity. "He
never seems to have given a thought
to ibe storm of studying hatred, ran
I cor. and revenge that was chafing
and raging below."
Lord Rosebery thinks It "only fair
to add" that the congress of his ene

In spite of qualities of easily aroused

fer from the prevailing ideals of mao

ours, but there'are few wife-beaters,
and the home atmosphere is almost al
ways outwardly peaceful. It follows
that a little true poltieness on the part
of the foreigner goes a long way. and
almost invariably meets with a warm
recognition; you rarely appeal to the
Japanese in vaih. They are as quick
to respond to an-act of real kindness
as they are to resent an act which has
a tinge of arrogance. Our Government
allo'wed several transports with re
turning volunteers to stop at Yoko
hana, and so hundreds of American
soljiers visited that city and Tokio.
One of them hired a bicycle and was

Jaanese man. The soldiers rang his t
bel several times, but the Japanese
ap larently paid no attention to it, and 1

Superintendent Bright takes excep
tion to a brightly colored chart in use
;n country schools which represents the
farmer as painfully mowinig grass
with a scythe at $1S a month, while
opposite an elegantly dressed clerk
cosily sells a bolt of ginghamn to a
beautiful young lady at $40 a month
and another city clerk below keeps
books on a little mahogany desk at
$200 a month.
Mr. Bright objects that the chart
conveys a false idea, for the farmer,
who really doea his mowing by ma
chinery, gets board and lodging with
his $10, while the dapper clerk has to
pay $39.50 a month out of his $40 for
board, lodging and car fare. Also the
business houses which are looking
for bright young men to keep books at
$200 a month, carefully keep their
wants out of the small "ad" columns
of the newspapers.
The only defense of the chart is that
it is calculated to "make pupils think."
This is true. It will make them think
that the authorities which display the
chart have something the matter with

A dear old lady was taken one day
to a musical service in a Boston

American Ways in Jamaica.
When you arrive at your hotel in
Kingston, Jamaica-and here it may
be remarked that the town contains
but one hotel worthy of the name-you
are at once made aware that the es

in the London Daily Mail. The guide
book says so, and the inevitable iced
water confirms the statement. Out

tem of electric trams makes you as an
Englishman blush to the hat brim. Call

and enterprise of the Americans are in
evidence, for the engine is of United

figure to the government of the colony.

Our Coast and Geodetie survey has
hade plans for charting the harbors
and coast of the Philippine Islands. A
while ago the survey established an
office at Manila in charge of Mr. G.
R. Putnam. who is now engaged with
a number of assistants preparing for
the surveys of the season. It.As ex
pected that active work will begin soon
and that sufficient data will be collect-;
ed before the close of the year to make
it practicable to publish charts of all
the larger harbors among the islands.
The work, however, will -ot be con
fined to the most important ports, but
many of the minor harbors that eerva
as points of distribution for the inter
island trade will also be 'charted. There
is at present little map material that
is of any service in the navigation of
these minor ports, though they play
an important part in the commerce cf
the Philippines. In the absence of
railroads and good highways these lit
tie ports are the collecting points for
the products of all the surrounding
country which small vessels carry to
the larger ports for shipment to for
eign purchasers. A considerable num
ber of these small harbors, for exam
ple, are known as "the hemp ports,"
because they are the collecting and
shipping points for this unique ar
ticle of Philippine commerce. As ap
proaches to these harbors are little
known the work of the Coast and Ge
odetic survey will be of great useful
ness to navigation and commerce: it
will also supply important information
needed for our better acquaintance
with the geography of our new pos
sessions in the orient.-New York Sun.

Hair Vigor stopped the fallian`sa
restored the natural color."--Mrs.
E. Z. Benomme, Cohoes, N. Y.
It's impossible for you
not to look old, with the
color of seventy years in
your hair! Perhaps you
are seventy and you like
your gray hair! If not,
use Ayer's Hair Vigor.
In less than a month your
gray hair will have all the
dark, rich color of youth.
