You don't know anything more about making money than you did 20 years ago." "Well, maybe I don't, and maybe I do, but I can pay my way, an' I can go back f Plainville when I like, too." "Don't get hot," said Gardiner, with unshaken composure. "I'm just trying to put you wise to yourself. 'Don't make any difference to me if you spend your whole life sod-busting; it's your life spend It any way you like. But It's only men who don't know any better that go on to the land now adays. It's a lot easier to make a liv ing out of farmers than out of farm ing." "Well, p'r'aps so, but that's more in your line. I never " "That's just what I say you never learn. Now look at me. I ain't wear ing my last suit, nor spending my last dollar, either, and I haven't done what you'd call a day's work since I came west. There's other things so much easier to do." "Meanln? " "Oh, lots of things. Remittance men, for instance. These woods are full of them. Chaps that never could track straight in the old ruts, and were sent out here where there aren't any ruts at all. They're not a bad bunch; brought up like gentlemen most of 'em ; play the piano and talk in three or four languages, and all that kind of stuff, but they're simply dan gerous with money. So when it comes to hand, in the public interest they have to be separated from it." "Sounds interestin'," said Riles. " 'Tis, too, especially when one of 'em don't take to the treatment and lays for you with a gun. But my hair's all there. That's what comes of wearing a tall hat." "Tell me," said Riles, his face lit up with interest, "how d'ye do it?" "'Twouldn't do you any good," said Gardiner. "You've steered too many plow handles to be very nimble with your fingers. But there's often other game to be picked up, if a man knows wnere to iuuis. lor ii. "Well, I wish I knew," Riles con fessed. "Not anythin' crooked, y know, but something like well, some thing like you're doin'. I've worked hard for ev'ry nickel I ever made, an' I reckon If there's easy money goin' I've a right t' get some of it." "Now you're beginning to wake up. Though, mind you, some of it isn't as easy as It looks. You've got to know your business, just like farming or anything else. But you can general ly land something to live on, even If It ain't a big stake. Take me now, for Instance. I ain't doing anything that a preacher mightn't do. Happened to fall in with a fellow who owns a ranch up the river here. Cleaned him empty one night at cards stood him up for his last cent, and he kind o' took a notion to me. Well, he's the son of a duke or an earl, or some such thing. and not long ago the governor goes and dies on him, leaving him a few castles and bric-a-brac like that and some waeon loads of money. So he had to go home for the time being, and as he wanted someone to run his ranch, who should he think of but me. Suppose he thought if I happened to bet it at poker some night I wouldn't lose It, and that's some consideration He's got 1,000 acres or so of land up there, with a dozen cayuses on it, and he gives me 25 pounds a month, with board and lodging and open credit at the trading company, to see that it doesn't walk away in his absence. Be sides that, I hire a man to do the work, and charge his wages up in the expenses. Got a good man, too one ef those fellows who don't know any better than work for a living. By the way, perhaps you know him comes from Plainville part Travers his name Is?" "Sure," said Riles. "He worked for Harris, until they had a row and he lit out. It kind o' balled Harris up, too, although he'd never admit it. If he'd Travers there it'd be easier for him t get away now." "Where's Harris going?" "He ain't goin' ; he's comin. Comln' out here In a few days after me. I'm his kind o' advance guard, spyin out the land." "You don't say? Well, see and make him come through with the expenses. If I was traveling for Jack Harris 1 wouldn't be sleeping In a hen coop like this. ' He's worth yards of money, ain't he?" "Oh, some, I guess, but perhaps not so much more'n his neighbors." "Nothing- personal, Riles. You've got to get over that narrowness if you're going to get Into the bigger game I've been telling you about. I don't care how much you're worth how much Is Harris bringing with him?" . "Couple of hundred dollars, likely." "I wouldn't show my hand for that. How much can he raise?" "Well, supposin' he sold the old farm " "Now don't do any reckless suppos ing. Will he sell the farm?" 'Sure, he'll sell it if he sees some thing better." "How much can he get for it?" "Thirty or $40,000." "That's more like a stake. Hiram, It's up to you and me to show him something better and to show It to him when he's alone. You're tired tonight. Sleep it out, and we'll drive over to the ranch tomorrow to gether. We ought to pick something better than a homestead out of this." Notwithstanding the exhaustion oc casioned by his journey Riles was ear- y about. The unexpected meeting with Gardiner, the latter's evident rosperity, and his frank contempt for es who made their living by labor, J Ajtxihor of -3 The Cbw 'RmcherTEta. Illustration by Irwin iyerr had left a deep impression upon Riles. He had no idea by what means Gardi ner proposed that they should possess themselves of Harris money, and he felt some doubt about any such at tempt being rewarded with success. Nevertheless, Gardiner seemed to think the matter a simple one enough, and Gardiner's good clothes and good cigars were evidence of his ability to carry his plans Into effect. Riles breakfasted as soon as the dining room was opened, eating his meal hurriedly, as he always did, al beit the French-fried potatoes, to which he was unaccustomed, could be poised on his knife only with consid erable effort. Then he sat down in an arm chair on the shady side of the ho tel to wait for Gardiner. He had sud denly lost his interest in the free lands which had been the purpose of his journey. It was almost noon when Gardiner appeared on the scene. "You don't hurt you'self in the mornin's," was Riles' greeting. "Don't need to," he answered cheeri ly. "Besides, I'd a long session after1 1 left you last night. No, no particulars at present. I told you you had spoiled your hands for that kind of work. How d'ye like this air? Isn't that something worth breathing?" "Good enough," said Riles, "but I didn't come out here for air." "No, you came for land. I'm sur prised you're not out bouncing over the prairie in a buckboard long before this." Riles shot a quick glance at Gardi ner. But he was puffing a cigar and drinking In the warm sunshine with obvious satisfaction. "So I might o' been, but I thought we kind o' made a date last night, didn't we?" "Did we? Oh, yes; now I remember. But I thought perhaps you'd feel dif ferent about it in the morning. A man generally does. I won't hold you to anything you said last night. Riles." Riles could not recall that he had said anything that committed him in any way, but Gardiner's tone implied that plainly enough. "I ain't changed my mind," he said, "but I don't know 's I said anything bindin', did I? I thought we was go in' t' drive out f your place t'day an' talk things over." "Well, I just didn't want you to lose any time over me if you thought things wouldn't work out," said Gardiner. "It takes more nerve, you know, than hoe- "I Won't Hold You to Anything You Said Last Night, Riles." ing potatoes. But you're welcome to the hospitality of the ranch, in any case. I came in on horseback, so we'll get a team at one of the stables and drive out." In a short time they were on their way. The road skirted the river, threading Its way through the narrow belt of cotton woods and evergreens that found footing in the moist soil of he valley. "It's all right, Riles," Gardiner was saying. "If you're prepared to stay with the deal we can pull it through no doubt about that. That is, if Harris will sell his farm and come out here with the cash in his jeans. If he won't do that, you better get busy on your homestead proposition right away." "He'll do It all right, if he sees somethin' worth while. But Harris 's no spring chicken, an' you'll have f show him somethin' t' his likin' before he loosens up." "I don't care whether he loosens up or not," said Gardiner. "All I care is that he brings the money, and brings it in bills. No checks, mind you. Get him out here with the cash on him, and I'll dt the loosening up, If It comes to that." Riles was somewhat alarmed at the sinister turn of the conversation. He had no compunction about getting the better of his old neighbor, the man who had entrusted him with the dis charge of their joint mission, but he had considerable respect for the force, if not the principle, of the law. "You don't mean that you'd do any- thin' anythin' that wasn't right?" he said. "I wouldn't want t' get mixed up in no scrape, y' know." "You mean that you think more of your skin than you do of Harris' coin. Well, there's no accounting for tastes. But as for doing anything wrong you ought to know me better than that. It will all be clean and above board, and no violence if It can be M W helped, but If Harris is unfortunate nobody's to blame for that. Of course, if you're afraid to take a sportsman's chance for one-half of $40,000. call the deal off. I've got lots of other fish to fry." "You don't understand," said Riles. "I ain't a'scared, but I don't want f do nothin' that'll get us into trouble. Harris is an old neighbor o mine, an' ' "I understand perfectly. You wouldn't mind a piece of Harris' money served on a platter and wrapped in tissutgjjfiper, but you want somebody else to take the cnances. jnow, tnere won't be any chances to speak of, but what there are you take your share. If that's a bargain it's a bargain, and if it isn't we'll talk about the weather. What d'you say?" "It's a bargain," said Riles, "provid ed your plan'll work out." "It's got to work out. It's like goins up in a balloon if it doesn't work out it's all off with the engineer. You got to take the chance. Hiram, and then make good on the chance." Riles chewed vigorously at his to bacco. "Explain how you're goin' t pull it off," he said, "an' then I'll tell you yes or no." "Not on your life," said Gardiner, "I don't show my hand until I know who's sitting across." There was silence for one-half a mile, while Riles turned the matter over In his mind. He was naturally a coward, but he was equaly a money grabber, and it was one instinct against the other. Avarice won it, and at length he extended his hand to Gar diner. "I'm in on anythin' you're in on," he said. "That sounds like it," said Gardiner, with enthusiasm. "Now the whole thing's simple as A B C, and not half as dangerous as running a traction en gine or breaking a broncho. It all rests on getting him out here with the money, and that's where you come in I don't mind telling you if it wasn't for the help you can give there I'd handle the job myself, and save divid ing the proceeds." "Yes, that's the point, all right," said Riles, somewhat dubiously. "How're we goin' to' get hint' out here with all that money?" "Think, Riles," said Gardiner, puff ing complacently at a fresh cigar. "Think hard." Riles wrinkled his forehead and spat copiously at the front hub, but the in spiration would not come. "I give It up." he said at last. "You'll have f plan It, an' I'll carry it out." "That's what comes of hard work. Hiram ; you lose all your Imagination Right now you haven't any more im agination than a cabbage. Now, I could suggest a dozen schemes to suit the purpose if I had to, but one will do. Suppose this : "These mountains up here are full of coal more coal than can be burnt In a million years. It's a bad road in, but once you get there you'll see it ly ing In seams, 10, 15, 20 feet thick. and stretching right through the rocks as far as you will like to follow it That coal's going to make a bunch of millionaires some day, but not until you can get at it with something big ger than a cayuse. But railroads come fast in this country, and there's no saying how soon a man might cash in If he invested just now." "You ain't goin' t' wait till a rail road comes, are you? We'll like enough be dead by that time." (TO BE CONTINUED.) JEWELS USED IN WATCHES Hard Substance Is Needed to With stand the Constant Friction Which Wears Away Moving Parts. The principal reason for the deteri oration of any piece of machinery Is because the constant friction wears away the moving parts and interferes with the regularity of the mechanism, A watch, being a machine in which absolute uniformity of speed is essen tial, it is necessary to reduce this friction to a minimum either thspugh constant oiling, the use of ball bear ings or some ery hard material which will withstand the wear and tear of constant friction. The first two of these methods are not feasible in so small a piece of machinery as a watch, so certain very hard jewels are placed at various points to counteract the rubbing caused by the moving parts. Watches are generally equipped with 7, 15, 17, 18, 21 or 23 jew els, the 15 and 17-jewel types being the most popular. Intrinsically, the jewels used in the manufacture of watches are of little value, but from the standpoint of service and the spe cific purpose which they serve they are invaluable. The jewels usually used in watchmaking are the hardest of the precious stones, diamonds, sap phires and rubies, and of these the most generally used is the sapphire, which combines hardness with com paratively reasonable price. Cow Had Novel Ride. Motorists of Williamsport, Pa., waiting at a railroad crossing for a train to pass, found out the reason why the pilot of a locomotive is called a cowcatcher. On that part of the engine a middle-aged cow sat, taking in the view, If not enjoying the ride. When the motorists signaled the engineer the train stopped and the cow was assisted from her perch, none the worse for her experience. Where and how she was picked up the train men did not know.

"We like It where it is warm, in what they call the tropics," said Mr. Glossy Ibis, the bird, "but we some times condescend to go to the South eastern part of the United States. "And I trust you will have the brav ery to ask if you don't understand," said Mr. Glossy Ibis, for he knew that Mrs. Glossy Ibis did not understand one of the words which he used and yet didn't want to say that she didn't understand. "I don't quite know what conde scend means," she said.

We stoop to do In His Sketch Book. something which isn't our custom, or we consent to do it, or we condescend to do it? you see." "Ah yes," said Mrs. Glossy Ibis. "Well," Mr. Glossy Ibis went on, "a number of years ago there were folks of our family in California. There were three hundred of us in a flock, or rather of7 our family. They were seen by a little boy named Fred, and Fred drew pictures of us as we looked when flying, walking, and from a front view and back view. "Everyone In the family was proud of the fact that Fred drew a family likeness and that he thought enough of us to put us down In his sketch book as Interesting birds he had seen. "That is one of the things which has made the family proud. Then he also put down a description of us which is very true. He told how we dressed, you know. "Yes, he described my glossy body which has given me this name. "He said that all the gentlemen of the family wore black glossy hand some suits with bronze tinges on our ruffs or collars and our heads. "He said that all the ladies dressed in a quieter black than the gentlemen with a little reddish tinge to the black. "He said that the ladies always had black bills and black legs. "He gave our size as standing about 18 inches in height, but from the tip of our beaks to the tip of our tails, he said, it was about 36 inches. "And the bills he said were about 4 inches, the legs from 8 to 12 Inches. "He said our bodies were small but our necks and legs long and our bills, he said, were fine and curved. "What he said, was perfectly true, too, as you know. "He also said that our feet were not web feet, and there is so apt to be a mistake about them. Our cry he de scribed as being like a plover's- per fectly true, too! "He gave a description of how we flew, slowly, with full flaps of the wings, and mentioned that we made a whistling sound as we flew along. "He said we liked to live In swamps and that many, many of us grouped to gether. But he said the time he had seen us in California, there were about three hundred in the flock. "He said we liked grain and worms and other good food, as birds should. "And above all, he said that we had nice habits, pleasant ways or at least, we had all of these, as far as he knew. "And as Fred Is a fine person. It Is a great compliment to think that he bothered to find out all about us and our ways, and just how we looked and what we did, and that he drew pic tures of the way our family look and dress. "It's a great compliment," agreed Mrs. Glossy Ibis. Her Sympathy Wasted. "I wish my dolly didn't have such a round face and such rosy cheeks," said little four-year-old Dorothy. Oh, that makes her look strong and healthy," said her mother. "Yes, that's the trouble." renlifd Dorothy.
