THE PARSON'S QUEST.
It Ended in
There was a breezy crowd over in the
Emma saloon one night less than a year
ago, and every man was well heeled,
carrying his revolver handy, and wore
his shirt open at the neck. As for the
women there was only one, and she
rejoiced in the soubriquet of "Scarred
Emma," and yon only had to look at
her hands to know why. They had
been burned to the bone, and, although
she wore diamond rings to the first
joint of every finger, they didn't dis
guise the horrid scars, seamed and livid,
and of these Emma was prouder than
of the rings. Well she might be. Had
she not saved the lives of men and
women bearing them in her arms from
a burning building? And these scars
were her medals of honor for her
Some of the gang were playing draw
poker, others engaged in a game of
seven up. Some drank and loafed,
loafed and drank again, and chaffed
with the landlady, who was about as
amiable f,s a tiger.
On the night here alluded to, "Scarred
Emma" was busy handing out the min
ers poison in copious doses, and listen
ing to such cheap compliments as were
not t-o suggestive of revolvers and
free fights, when the door opened, and
the deputy sheriff entered the place.
Everybody rose up, and a shout of
welcome greeted the newcomer.
"Hello, Hill, glad to see yer. Hiring
in any new uns?"
"Xawl Evenin", Em. About two fin
gers straight, seein' I jest got in. Iieen

wuz a lectle weazened parson on the
stage an' he interfered and prayed off
so fluid like we weakened, an' let the
feller go with nary a bullet in his
carcass. Here's to ye. Era, for the
fairest of yer sex Come on, boys, an'

He tossed off the dram and set the
tumbler down to be refilled.
"Where's the parson?" asked the land
lady, smiling on the deputy as she
measured the fiery fluid with a liberal
"lie's stopped over to preach at Hell's
Delight, but he'll be at the (iulch to

Ikivs to grease their boots and be ready,
for he's a buster, the parson is."
"Say, Bill." remarked Emma, stirring
his whisky by shaking it in the glass.
"is he a young feller?
"Aw, an' sickly. Lord, yer

her eves. Another touch ot rougs to
repair the ravage, and she was ready
"to go to church," as she phrased it to
herself. A determined, aggressive fig
ure, dressed in a smart black satin,
wearing a bow of pink ribbon at the
throat It seemed as if the incongruity
of her attire struck her at the last
moment, for on the threshold of her
room she stopped, went back, and
threw a lace shawl around her shoul
ders. Then she made her way to the
front room, just as the noise of clatter
ing boots and grating chairs was
hushed, and the minister bowed hi
head in prayer.
A dozen men made room for her.
Their faces brightened as she entered,
hut she did not look at one of them.
Like one walking in sleep she moved,
and never took her eyes from the thin,
meager form of the man who stood in
the impromptu pulpit, pouring out his
soul in prayer.
It was not nntil the petition was
ended, and the oppressed listeners had
relaxed with a sigh, that she sat down
among the men, where she could sea
without being seen.
The minister then chose a hymn anc?
lined it out:
"I heard the voice of Jesus say"
He was interrupted by Deputy Kill.
"We can't sing that, pard I mean
parson. Give us something we know."
They compromised on "A land that
is fairer than day." The parson heard
the sweet treble of a woman's voice,
and wondered much whence it came.
He looked troubled, and the cough that
shook him with its paroxysm brought
out bottles and glasses, but he put
aside all offers with a shaking hand.
"Hearken to me, my friends," he be
gan, solemnly, "and know that you are
listening to a dying man."
He had not time to announce the
text, the words of life were hovering
upon his lips, when there rang through
the room a woman's frenzied cry:
"Oh! Jimmy, Jimmy!"
"Who spoke, who called me?" asked
the parson, with white lips, clinging to
the table before him.
"Oh! Jimmy, you're too late and
you're killing yourself, and it's for me,
and I'm not worth it I'm-not-worth-it!"
She was making her way to him now,
and as his eyes lit up his dcath-palu
features he prayed:
"At last." he murmured, "at last,
and now I'm willing to die! Lord, I
His head fell forward. A dozen stal
wart men jumped to his side, but when
he was laid on the nearest bench it
was ".Scarred Emma" who held his dy
ing head on her arm, and it was into
her face he looked when he opened his
eyes for a brief coming back to life.
"Don't cry," he said, tenderly, "don't
cry, Slolly at least not for me but

From the porch of the little lunch-
house the tourist sees a stranire sitrht
To the right and front of the house,
across a little interval of verdure and
pine-trees there is a great plain of
formation which is seemingly covered
with active geysers From one end to
the other are waving fen there of steam,
while now and then one of the hot
fonntains'shoots its column of water
high in the air. There are twenty-six
geysers and four hundred hot springs
in the basin. It is a wonderful place.
Vegetation has ceased to exist The
barren contents of the earth's interior
have been spurted out and have covered
and killed the soil. It is a great extent
of white, brown and black desolation.
Here and there are skeleton trees dead
and hanlened with the deposits that
cover the surrounding country. Lord
Duffenn has said that the place gave
mm the impression of some modern eity
that had been Overwhelmed and "had
so lately sunk amid flames into the
bowels of the earth that the smoke of
its ruins was still ascendinir through
heaps of smouldering ashes;" and Prof.
Whitwell has said: "Nowhere else, I
believe, can be seen on so irrand a scale

action. We seem to witness the death

The geyser that is of most interest to
the tourist is naturally that whose
eruptions are most regular, and can
therefore be depended on. This is Old

ner of the Fountain Geyser, throws a
column of water straight into the air

fifty feet The most noteworthy attri
bute of this geyser is its regularity. By
actual and careful observation it has
been fonnd that the eruptions occur at
an average interval of sixty-five min
This geyser is on the left bank of the
Fire-hole. On the opposite bank is the
Beehive, which throws a stream more
than two hundred feet high. This is
one of the few geysers that do not
throw out any rocks while the water is
so hot that it evaporates in the air. It
is safe, therefore, to observe it close at
hand, while the absence of overflow
leaves it without terraces at its base,
which are characteristic of Old Faithful
and other geysers. The Giantess.
