PRXTON TQ! LET MttS.
By ROY NORTCN
McCarthy, superintendent of the
Oolconda, big, bluff, and burly, was
unhappy. He stood at the station wait
ing for the belated train that was to
bring with it ihe special car contain
ing the wife and daughter of the pres
ident. McCarthy disliked the waste
of time and the role of entertainer for
"Most of the women I have known
have been a nuisance," he said audibly,
in his growing annoyance.
"Me, too, Mack," piped up a small
voice beside him.
The superintendent looked at his
companion, Sanders, the stage-driver.
The latter, nearly four feet in height
and 13 years old, returned the gaze
unblinking!y from a pair of wise-look
ing Irish-American eyes which belied
his a^e, meanwhile wrinkling his
freckles into a mass that served as a
harmonious fresco below his red hair.
The train groaned and creaked
along the rails, and came to a whining,
Sanders dove frantically through the
crowd and planted himself before the
platform. Down the steps surged pros
pectors, miners, commercial travelers,
and women, bumping each others' legs
with bales, bundles, and bags, and all
in a hurry. But it was not Sanders'
day. There was none who knew him
—and those who were attracted by his
shrill voice crying: "Stage-line to
Home," paid small heed to his appeal,
and trafficked with his rival.
"Here, you, Sanders," hailed Mc
Carthy's voice from the diminishing
crowd, "here are some passengers for
The wise-looking little, old face
brightened up hopefully, and he came
forward unabashed, but colored with
self-consciousness before the outburst
of merriment of the most beautiful
lady he had ever seen. He recalled in
stantly a story his father used to, tell
him before he went to rest back up
there in the hills, and from then on
she became to him the "Dream Lady."
McCarthy led the way to the stage,
assisted the president's wife and
daughter to a seat, and then deposited
his own buge bulk beside the driver's

ing the spokes of the wheel as a lad

hands, tripped the brake with much
effort, and started his horses with a
McCarthy had always thrown all
the patronage to Sanders' line that he
could. McCarthy never laughed at
him, and McCarthy was a big man.
A real superintendent who worked
many men and who was a king up
there where all those men worked.
McCarthy was a trump.
The stage-driver's mind went ram
bling away to the stories he had read
in the ten-cent books he had secured
I'rom the miners, where the heroine
was always a beautiful young lady
who always fell in love with the hero,
who, if not a stage-driver, was a brave
young detective. They always mar
ried, and, as far as he could recollect,
ived happily ever after.
It really seemed like a very short
drive that day, and when the stage
rolled up to the front of the superin
tendent's office, which had been pre
pared as a temporary home for the
visitors, Sanders was quite surprised
•t» »it* speed they had made.
The t'.ays changed for Sanders.
There was no longer a weariness in
he drag uphill from the American
to the Golconda. This was because of
the Dream I^ady.
There was something odd about it
all, he pondered. McCarthy took more
pains than he used to, because he
slaved every day, and had a new hat
that he wore when not going through
the mine. The Dream Lady, too,
showed signs of the summer's progres
sion. She looked at iiie superin
tendent differently, and there was
something in the look that led San
ders to know that she saw in this
white-hatted, silent man a master of
men and things. Ah! be could love
her for that.
The Dream Lady didn't seem to be
as happy as she had been, and there
was trouble between her and her
mother. The boy wondered at that,
and spent his idle time in vain specu
lations. True, he had heard but little,
but it was a certainty
that the Dream
as if avoiding something. The boy
felt aggrieved. The Dream Lady was
very fine, but there was no one too
good to be friends with McCarthy, and
she must have said something to have
changed him so.
The tamaracks changed color and
the gtass on the open spaces grew
gray with age. Another summer was
So. with the flight of warmth, the
stage-driver came to the m:ne one

McCarthy was trying to look uncon-
cerned, but his eyet. were very deep
and konely. The Dream Lady had a
veil over her face, and no longer
laughed as gaily as when she came to
the hills for the summer. Only her
mother talked—talked volubly and
sharply and unceasingly as Sanders
took them abroad.
The superintendent stood awkward
ly by the wheel. "Some day we shall
meet again," Sanders heard him say.
The Dream Lady turned away without
a word and looked toward the moun
tain tops as though bidding them fare
The horses felt the coolness of the
morning, and were mettlesome. Their
hoofs rang spitefully on the frost
hardened roads, and they tugged at
the bits until Sanders' tough little
arms ached with the persistent pull.
They surged against the lines or
jumped, as if frightened, away from
"What the devil ails you?" yelled
Sanders, as the off-horse suddenly
broke into a run. Sanders' foot struck
out madly for a greater purchase on
the brake, a defective bolL snapped
somewhere, and he nearly fell from his
seal. The team wildly plunged for

jumping over boulders, they went, bnt
Sanders sat firm, with his browned
hands twisted desperately into the
Up from below, with bells tinkling
on the leaders, and driven by one who
carelessly whistled, came an ore
wagon. The whistle stopped abruptly,
and the driver was startled into action,
but too late. Sanders had seen the
danger, and made instant choice. It
was that his own viciously running
horses must be swung up into the
bluff to avoid being hurled into the
river below. He reached far out and
caught a tenacious twist in the line
nearest the bank, gritted his teeth
and with a sudden jerk threw his en
tire weight back in one mad fling.
There was a sharp crash, which re
verberated back into the hills, the
splintering of wood and a confusion ol
struggling horses. Sanders felt him
self hurled high into the air, heard
the whistle of the wind shrilling in his
ears, accompanied by the groans and
screams of the maimed animals. He
had a vision of wildly striking, kick
ing hoofs, into which he plunged as
though shot from a catapult, and then
it grew dark, very dark.
Sanders thought something smelled
bad—just as the hospital did that
time when father was taken there. He
tried to raise his arm, but there was
some big wooden thing on it and it
hurt. He rested a while, trying to re
member what had happened.
Then he decided to open his eyes,
but one was blind, because there was a
cloth wrapped around his head. Final
ly he looked out with the other one
with much effort, and discovered, to
his amazement, that he was in the su
perintendent's office only it didn't
look natural—there were so many hot
ties around on tables.
Sanders tried to sit up, but a cool
hand restrained him. "Not yet, dear
boy," said (lie Dream Lady, and then
his mind became active and he wanted
to know where the stage was.
"You are through with the stage,
my little driver, said the Dream Lady.
"As soon as I can take you, you are
going home with us, away back into
the east, where there are no stages,
but only schools and other little boys
Lady and her mother were not on good
terms. So he hated the mother.
Worst of all. McCarthy somehow
seemed to feel the change, and San
ders' heart ached fur him with a dull,
sympathetic hurt which required con-,
stant repression. Of course he couldn't before Sanders voice could become

"Not on your life," said Sander3,

mere wail he heard another and a
deeper voice as it came to the bed
side. It was on the side where the
talk to the man—that would never be
understood besides, there wasn't the
same camaraderie that there had
been, because the man was quieter, if I obnoxious bandage was, and somehow
possible than he used to be, and he h* couldn turn his head to see but

approbation of the big man, mur

WHAT WINTER WHEAT IS DOING
FOR SOUTHERN ALBERTA.
Splendid Crop* on the Former Ranch
ing Plains of Canadian West.
That portion of the country in Wes
tern Canada formerly recognized as
ranching country has developed into
one of the best winter wheat districts
In the continent. Yields are quoted
running from 30 to GO bushels to the
acre, and giving a return to the farmer
of from $25 to fjO per acre. These
lands are now selling at from $12 to
|20 per acre, and pay well at that
figure. H. Howes of Magratli, Alberta,
Western Canada, had 50 acres of land
In wheat, which averaged 45 bushels
to the acre his yield of oats was 35
bushels. The value to him per aero
of wheat was $35.00. J. F. Haycock
of the same place, says: "I had 65
acres of wheat, 35 acres of oats and
four acres of barley. My average yield
of oats to the acre was 80 bushels
wheat—winter—60 bushels and red
fyfe, 33 bushels, and barley, 50 bush
els. The value to me per acre was,
wheat, $2S.OO oats, $32.00, and bar
ley, $24.00." J. F. Rradshaw of Ma
grath, had 1,030 acres of wheat in crop
that averaged bushels to the
acre, his oats, 32 bushels barley, 53
bushels. He threshed 31,000 bushels
of wheat from 540 acres. He also had
250 tons of sugar beets from 25 acres
worth $5.0214 per toil. W. S. Sherod,
of I^ethbridge, says: "I came to Leth
bridge from Souris, North Dakota, in
April, 1907, having purchased 900
acres of land in this district last fall.
1 had 12S acres of Alberta Red winter
wheat which was put in on breaking in
the fall of 190G, which yielded 41'^
bushels to the acre, for wMch I re
ceived 87cents per bushel, which
paid me $3G.30 per acre. 1 had 190
acres "stubbled in" that is disced
in on the stubble, which yielded 22
bushels to the acre at i7V£ cents per
bushel, which paid me $1P.25 to the
acre. I also had 350 acres of strictly
volunteer crop, which it tvas intended
to prepare in the summer but when it
was see* lhat it was a good, looking
crop, it was allowed to go. From this
we threshed 15 bushels to the acre,
which paid us at the rate of 87^
cents per bushel or $13 12 per aero.
Our total crop yielded us 14,742 bush
els of first-class wheat. Taking it as
a whole, I consider that I had a first
class crop all through and. taking in
to consideration the fact of part of the
crop having been "stubbled in," and
part strictly volunteer (which was
never touched at all until the binder
was put into it), I consider I had a
heavy crop. I might, say that I waB
in North Dakota five years, and I i
never grew as heavy a crop during
that time. This is the 25th day of
November, and my teams are still
ploughing, and, from the appearance
of the weather, will be for some time
yet." R. W. Uradshaw of Magrath.
says: "I had this year 400 acres in
crop, viz.: 200 acres of wheat and 200
acres In oats. My average yield of
oats to the acre was 50 bushels, and
wheat, 22'/^ bushels. The value to me
per acre for wheat was $19.00, and
oats, $17.00. The highest price ob
tained by me this year or offered me
for my grain was for wheat 82 cents The only s'ure thing about
per bushel, and $1.05 per hundred for cure for a cold is that it isn't.
oats. I also had 100 tons of hay r— _...
worth $12.00 per ton, and will say my
wheat was all volunteer this year.!
Lots of wheat is averaging from 50 to i
60 bushels per acre on summer fallow,
and on new breaking, when the break
ing was done early in the spring."
Writing from Spring Coulee. Alberta,
W. L. Thompson ways: "I had this year
3,000 acres in crop, viz.: 2,000 acres of
wheat and 1,000 acres of oatn. My
average yield of oats to the acre was I
30 bushels and of wheat 35 bushels. I
The value to me per acre for wheat i
was $27.00 and for oats $15.00."
