JAKE GEUNEK'S JEALOUSY. 11Y WKLEON J. C011U, JR. A cheery whittle echoed through the Caloverat Canon, and fell upon tho eari of a man boudiDg over a pilo of wood, cutting; tho sturdy sticks into splinters to start a Gro. "Always full of life," he muttered to himself, looking up with a face whoso homolinois pasted away with tho siuilo that irradiated his features. 'Well, partner, did I say right?" 'luo whistler had drawn up to the cabin door, and leaning on his gun loo'ted with mirth-loving eyes upon Jake Garner. "You're never wrong, my hearty 1" he said. "The storm is ritiug now, and you've lost your mission in not going up to liacl.de, and holding forth as Jacobus Gernorus, Professor of Magic, Weather cock aud fortune Teller. "You believe my impressions' always right, then?" queried Corner, arising aud unoasiiy regarding AlcUolm. "Never at fault," was the staunch reply. "Now, McColm, don't eay that." cried Gcrner. "See hero," Hinging down tho axe, and hiding his face in his arm, while ho leaned against I he door post, "I suffered tho torture of the doomed, to-day I If I thought-' McColm's blue 'eyes stared with wonder. "See here, Juke Oerncr," ho said, with assumed anger, a pathetic tearful ncss ringing in his voice, "no blubboring around hero, I won t stand it.

Wo may separate when you get spliced to that what's her Dame, Juko 7 Hut Gcrner, with a sad shako of the head, had turned into the bouse and was on his kneos before the fire-place. "By tho by, Jake," said McColm, carelessly, as he cut some pieces of dried venison into a tcw-pnn, "1 hud qmto nn adventure to day. I was up by the ruu, two miles couth of bore, when I came across a girl Bitting on a stone crying She held two horses by their long bridles, and a mighty pretty picture alio made You know, knocking around here hai taken all the politeness out of me ; but I uiu my oesi to consoio tne weeping maiden.

It happened she had lost her companion who was escorting her from Laclede to Mixor't 'Corner's but had sighted gama and startod off in pur suit of it. I found him after awhilo a tall, awkward booby, so confused, ho did not know bis way out of the woods. Sho gave me her hand when I restored her guide.

"Do you mean to tell mo you are tri fling with this girl, or are you in ear nest?" "Why, old boy," stammered McColm, "what eould I know of a woman 1 never saw before, Jake?" not noticing the clenched hands and sot teeth. "You've always been candid with me, I'll be the same with you I love that woman, love her as well as if I had known her a cen tury." A cry ot mortal agony, such as uno seldom givei utteranco to save in some momont of awful anguish, broke from the lips ot tho miner. "Curie you with your handiomo faoo and your womanly ways, Farley Mc Colm 1" ho cried wildly, and then, be fore his companion ceuld utter a word, he darted through the door, skirted the river, and was lost to Bight in the dim obtcurity beyond. Farley McColm sat like one stupified, not noticing that the long ezpeeted snow was beginning to fall, and scarcely com prehending Gerner'n startling denuncin tion. He eat, nerveless, unthinking, al most benumbed. The fire went out, the meal was negleoted and untested, and with a wetry sigh, and a dim shadow upon hie mind, McColm want ever to a pile of skins in one corner of tha hut and flung himself upon them. Then tho day died, and tne snow lay thicker, and the darkness fell. It was midnight when ha awoke, and to him it teemed at though an hundred armiet were tramping through the dreary canon.

In the darkness and the falling snow, an unfamiliar objeot loomed up beforo bim. Ho touched it; it was ahorse; itt head was buried in iho snuw, is if iu search of something. Then, he raited something from tna now and carried it toward! tne cabin, whilo the hone, startled by tho sound of an animal howling, dashed tcrriGedly down the canon, and on Into the impenc trable darkness of the night. "A woman I" broke from McColm's lips, as ho' placed his burden ou tho cabin floor. More like a body which the breath of life was leaving; but an hour later, when the fire hud been rebuilt and tho apertures admitting tho snow to tho cabin had been closed, and ibo rcscuird com fortably seated in McColm's favorite chair beforo the firo place, a woman it surely was ; a woman whose magnetic eyes held him spell bound, und whose smile had ttmt very day inspired his heart with love the heroine of the ad venture at the run I Her companion, sho said, had fallen over somo dangerous height, as, when the storm begun they attempted to reach some shelter. Sho thanked him warmly for his various little acts of kindness, und then with tearful eyes gratefully ic knowlcigcd his saving her lifo. And what did ho do ? a hemes usually do, and claim it was nothing? Not at all. Down beforn her, on one knee he bent, and lifting his handsoniu eyes to hers told her that ho loved hnr, 'fold her that ho rather both had peri-hed, the and himself, than that his lovo should find no hope. "It is better to tell you now," he said, "for it will not bo an hard to break away fram you a week benco, when wo must part, if you do uot love me." She looked at him in perplexed dis may, and repeated his words, "A week hence !" "Yes, there is no opportunity of leav. ing hcie before that time, if the enow keeps on fulling. Do you think you could love me over so little? ' "Kver ) mush.' she replied. So, the night merged into day the first day of the week, which half spent, brought thorn to the conviction that they must gain Laclede or starve. Tho canon was river deep with snow, and the weather had ruled inteusely eold It waa tho fourth night of their involun tary seclusion in the mountain cabin that both sat beforo tho fireplace rather mournful aud sad, for en the morrow McColm was to csssuy forth for Laclede Throug'i the window tho moon looked down, benignant and gracious, and lar: and full, turning tho night almost into bright day. Filially she arose from his Bide, and lay down upon tho est ho hud prepared lor her in a remote corner ot the caum while ho sat thinking by tho dying em bers of the fire. A knnek? Could it bo, or was it some animal, striving to force nn en trance? Fearless hearted, Farley Mc Colm unbolted the door quickly. "Juke Oerner 1" His visitor staggered in, and flinging his frost covered burden upon the floor, spoke nover a word, but, with eyes Qx6d steadfastly downward, retraced his steps to the doer. "You shall not go 1" "Not go 1" and a wild gleam shot up into the miner' eyes. "Leave well enough alone. Farley McColm I I have travelled here from Mixer's Corners to bring you food, for I knew your slender stock would soon bo ezbautted. Stand aside. I would pass." "No I By the God who made mo, you shall not past until yau tell me for what reason my best friend has thus gone hack on me I "For what roason hear him I" cried Gerner discordantly. "Did you not stout her heart from me I her in the woods that?" Did you not meet that day I ho s Both men turned and looked at Mo Colui'e affianced, who disturbed by the noise had arisen. "That, Juke Gerner, is the woman I love tbo woman 1 would make my wife." The miner tottered forward, fell into a chair, and bid his face in his bands. "1 have been a fool," he said, finally. "in believing that my truest friend could rob me of my heart s only treasuro Forgive me, old boy," ho added, tearfully to .McColm. It was a natural mistake, they ascer tuined, when they reached Laclede ; for Jako Geruer's idol had intended just the same journey thai Mist Whittlesey had taken, and bore the tame characteristic) as to appearance. II erica the miner jealousy, belioving it was her McColm had met at the run, Garner's prediction thai they might separate never came true ; Tor, although both wedded, together thsy worked their little claims, gaining sufficient to enable them to provide couifortabl, happy home?, in which their mutual joyt and cares were shared alike.

A Lion Loose In Missouri. Froin tho St. Joseph Herald, Mth.J The people in tho neighborhood of Taot are jutt now very much exercised, over tho proicncc of toiuo large, wild animal that roams tho woods at night, and It making havoc with the sheep aud cattle of tho neighborhood. Its presence wat lirct known on last Saturday, one week ago, when it entered tho village of Wallaco Station, a littlo town a few miles fiotn Taoe, in the evening, jutt after dark, aud killed five or six dogs, and during the night ato the heads of two or three of them. Sinco tha'. time it hit been frequently seen in the neighborhood of Taot, invariably jutt about dust, but airly enough to p'ainly distinguish itt form and size, although those who have teen it cannot tell its color. It i taid to be fully threo feet in height and six or seven feet long. Ono geutleman who hat seen it and examined its tracks, says that it it genuine California lion. Uno night last week a CDonhunling party eamo upon it and discovered it in the top of a tree. Iho California liont are said to be good clinibe-t. Mr. W. A. Brooker, a farmer living within about a mile of Tao, gave us the facts and laid that ou last Thursday night, whilo carrying a sack of flour through tho woods from Taos to his house, he met the animal in a ravine, a short distance from his house. Both he and it stopped bo threw dawn hie taok ot Hour and gavo a yell. The animal stood perfectly ttill and looked coolly at him, hit lartio eyeballs glittering in tha dark. Mr. Brooker gavo another yell and the animal loped slowly away, mak ing ihe bruth crack as it weut. In tbo morning itt Iraiks in tha iiht snow were examined, and tbo points of its pawa wore longer than a man's hand whan sptead our. Its huge elawe showed by their marks to bo two inches long. At preient it contents itself with kill ing hogt and thcep. Mr. Brooker in forms ut that his neighbors intend to capture the fellow, both to savo their stook and as a matter of safety to them selves, at any one pasting through tha noods at night would be a tempting meal for hit savage lionship. Exactly what it is no one knows ; but that it it somo very large wild animal, not common in this section of iho Sta-to, it undoubtedly a fact. We shall probaply hear moru from it again. A good way to keep a secret it to keep it to yourself. If you tell one you might as well (ell everybody. The fel lowingjis told of Stuart, the colebrated painter, which illustrares finely Ihe power which a sceret has to propagate itself, if once allowed a littlo airing and to reach a few ears. Stuart had, as ho supposed, discovered a secret art of coloring very valuable. He told it to a friend. His friend valued it very highly, and came a short time afterwards to ask permission to eommuoicate it, under oath of eternal tccreey, to a friend of his who needed every possible aid to enablo him to rise. "Let mo see," said Stuart, making a chalk mark on a board at hand ; "1 know the art, and that is " "Ono," taid hit friend. "You know it," taid Stuart making another mark by tho aide of tha ana al ready made ; "and that it " "Two," cried tho other. "Well, you tell your friend, and that will be" marking a third mark.
