Elam Harnlsh, known all tnrmixh Alas ka aa "Burning Dayllght,"celebrates his 10th birthday with a crowd of miner at the Circle City Tlvoll.

He tarta on his mall trip with dogs and BUMlge, telling his friends that he will be tn the big Yukon gold strike at the start. Burning Daylight makes a sensationally rapid run across country with the mall, appears at the Tlvoll and Is now ready to loin his friends In a dash to the new ?:old llelds. Deciding that gold will be ound tn the up-river district Harnlsh buys two tons of flour, which he declares will ba worth Its welnht tn gold, but when he arrives with his flour he finds the big flat desolate. A comrade dlscov lawson. becomes the ure In the Klondike rs gold and Daylight reaps a rich har J 1. rial and defeats a combination of capitalists most prominent In a vast mining deal. He returns to civilization, and, amid ths bewildering compllrRtlons of high flnancs. Daylight finds that he has been led to Invest his eleven millions In a manipulated scheme. He goes to New York, and confronting his disloyal partners with a revolver, he threatens to kill them If his money Is not returned. They are cowed, return their stealings and Harnlsh goes back to San Francisco where he meets his fats In Dede Mason, a pretty stenographer. He makes isrge Investments and gets Into the political ring. For a rest h goes to the country, CHAPTER XI Contlnutd. Daylight could not persuade blm- elt to keep to the traveled roadg that day, and another cut acrosa coun- try to Oleo Ellen brought blm upon a canyon that so blocked hla way that he waa glad to follow a friendly cow- path. This led him to a small frame cabin. The, doors and windows were open, and a cat waa nursing a litter of kittens In the doorway, but no one teemed at home. He descended tbe trail that evidently crossed the can Ton. Part way down, he met an old man coming up through the sunset In bis hand he carried a pall of foamy milk. He wore no hat, and In bis faco, framed with snow-white hair and beard, was the ruddy glow and con tent of the passing summer day. Daylight thought that be had never aeen so contented looking a being. "How old are you, daddy?" , he Quer- . led.I -. )' ' I "Eighty-four." waa the reply. "Yes. alrree, elgbty-four, and spryer than roost" "'Jfou must a' taken good care of yourself," Daylight suggested. "I don't know about that. I ain't loafed none. I walked acrosa the plains with an ci team and fit Injuna In '61. and I waa a family man with geen youngsters. I reckon I was as old then aa yon are now, or pretty nigh on to It." , "Don't yon find It lonely here!" The old man ahlfted the pall of milk and reflected. "That all depends," he said oracul arly. "I ain't never been lonely ex cept when the old wife died. Some : fellers are lonely In a crowd, and I'm one of them. That's the only time I'm lonely, Is when I go to 'FrUco. But I don't go no more, thank you 'most to death. This Is good enough for m. I've been right here In this valley since '64 one of the first set- . tiers after the Spaniards. The old man chuckled, and Day light rode on, alngularly at peace with himself and all the world. It seemed that the old contentment of trail and camp he had known on the Yukon ' had come back to blm. He could not shake from his eyes the picture of the old pioneer coming up the trail througtUhe aunset light. He was cer- . talnly going some for eighty-four. The thought of following his example en tered Daylight's mind, but the big - game of San Francisco vetoed the Idea. CHAPTER XII. Instead of returning to the city on Monday, Daylight rented the butcher's , horse for another day and crossed Ihe bed of the valley to Its eastern bills. As on the previous day, Just for the joy of it, he followed cattle-trails at haphazard and worked his way up to ward the summits. Coming out upon a wagon road that led upward, he fol lowed It for several miles, emerging - In t small, mountain-encircled valley, where half a doten poor ranchers fanned the wine-grapes on the atecp tlopet. Beyond, tbe road pitched np : ward. Dense chaparral covered the exposed hillsides, but In the creases of the canyons huge spruce trees ' grew, and wild oats and lower. Late In the afternoon be broke through, and followed a well defined ' ' trail down a dry canyon. The dry eanyon gave place to one with a tlen- der ribbon of running water. ' The ' trail ran Into a wood-road, and the ' wood-road emerged acrosa a email flat . apon a slightly traveled country road. There were no farma tn this Immedi ate section, and no houses. The toll ' was meager, the bed-rock either close to the surface or constituting the tur- . tace Itself. Mantanit and scrub-oak, however, nourished and walled the road on either tide with a jungle growth. And out runway through (hit growth a mm suddenly scuttled ' tn a way that reminded Daylight of a -' reunlt He waa a little man. In patched overalls; bareheaded, with a cotton shirt open at the throat and down the chest The sun was ruddy-brown In his face, and by It his tandy hair was bleached on the ends to peroxide blonde. He signed to Daylight to halt, and held up a letter. "It you're going to town, I'd be obliged If you mall this," he said. "I ture will." Daylight put It Into bit coat pocket "Do you Uve here abouta, atrangerr But the little man did not answer. He waa gazing at Daylight In a aur- prised and tteadfatt fashion. "I know you." the little man an nounced. "You're Elam Harnlsh Burning Daylight, the papera call you. Am I right'" Daylight nodded. "Well, I'm glad I wrote that letter this afternoon," the little man went on, "or else I'd have missed seeing you. I've teen your photo In tbe pa pera many a time, and I've a good memory for facet. I recognized you at once. My name't FergniBon." "Do you live hereabouts?" Daylight repeated bit query. Oh, yet. I've got a little stack back here In the bush a hundred yards and a pretty spring, and a few fruit trees and berry bushes. Come In and take a look. And that spring la dandy. You never tasted water like It Come In and try It" Walking and leading hit horse. Day light followed the quick-stepping, eager little man through the green tunnel and emerged abruptly upon the clearing. If clearing it might be called, where wild nature and man'a earth- scratching were inextricably blended. It wat a tiny nook in the hills, pro tected by the tteep walla of a canyon fed them, and brought them up. Come on and peep at the aprlng. It i ture a bummer," waa Daylight's verdict after due Inspection and sam pling, aa they turned back tor the house. The Interior was a surprise. The cooking being done in the email, lean to kitchen, the whole cabin formed a large Uvlng-room. A great table in the middle waa comfortably littered with books and magazine. All the available wall apace, from wall to cell ing, wat occupied by filled book- shelves. It teemed to Daylight that he had never aeen ao many bookt aa tembled In one place. Skint of wild cat, 'coon and deer lay about on the ptne-board floor. Daylight found himself cbarmed and made curloua by the little man. Why waa he hiding away here In the chap arral, be and hla books? -So It waa, when between them they had washed and wiped tbe dishes and put them away, and had aettled down to a com fortable smoke, that Daylight put his question. "Look here, Ferguson. Every since we got together, I've been casting about to And out what's wrong with you, to locate a acrew loose some where, but I'll be danged If I've suc ceeded. What are you doing here, anyway?" Ferguson frankly showed hla pleas ure at the qneatlona. "FlrBt of all," he began, "the doctora wound up by losing all hope for me. Gave me a few months at best, and that, after a course In aanltarluma and a trip to Europe and another to HawalL Tbey tried electricity and forced feeding and fasting. I waa a graduate of about everything in tbe curriculum. They kept me poor with their bills, while I went from bad to worse. The trouble with me wat two fold; first I was a born weakling: and next, I waa living unnaturally too much work, and responsibility and strain. I waa managing editor of tbe Times-Tribune in San Francisco, and I wasn't strong enough for the whom the lust for power had long aince died. It waa not until ten o'clock that Daylight parted from Ferguson. At he rode along through the starlight the Idea came to blm of buying the ranch on the other aide of tbe valley.

The erosion of ages from the hillside úad slowly formed tbls deposit of tat eanb. Un der the oaka, almost burled In them, stood a rough, unpalnted cabin, tbe wide veranda of which, with chairs and hammocks, advertised an out-of-doors bedchamber. Daylight's keen eyes took In everything. The clearing was Irregular, following the patcbea of the best toll, and every fruit tree and berrybush, and even each vege table plant, had the water personally conducted to It The tiny Irrigation channels were everywhere, and along some of them the water wat running. Ferguson looked engerljr Into hit vlsltor't face for signs of approbation. "What do you think of It eh?" "Hand-reared and manicured, every blessed tree," Daylight laughed, hut the joy and satisfaction that abone In hit eyet contented the little man "Why, d'ye know, 1 know every one of those trees as If they were tone of mine. I planted them, nursed them, etraln. Of course my body went back on me, and my mind, too, for that mat- atr. It had to be bolstered up with whisky, which wasn't good for it any more than waa the living in clubi and bótela good for my stomach and tt-e rest of me. -So I quit, quit every thing, absolutely, and came to live In tbe Valley of the Moon that's the Indian name, you know, for Sonoma Valley. 1 lived In the lean-to the first year; then 1 built the cabin and tent for my hooka. I never knew whtt hap plneat waa before, nor health. Look at me now and dare to tell me that I look forty-seven." "I wouldn't give a day over forty, Daylight confessed. "Yet the day 1 came here I looked nearer sixty, and that wat fifteen yeara ago." They talked along, and Daylight looked at the world from new anglea. Here wta a man, neither bitter nor cynical, who laughed at the city-dwell-rs and called them lunatics; a man who did not care for money, and la Counterfeiter Qeta Stiff Sentence.

The charge was coun terfeiting the trade-mark for Carter's Lit tle Liver Fills, la violation of the penal law. The Carter Medicine Company detected the counterfeit before any quantity of the spurious goods had been placed upon the market. In sentencing Fink, Judge Deuel laid special stress upon the Injury done to the nubile when a remedy so well known as Carter's Llttla L. ver P Ml Is counter- felted and put on the market. He Im posed the sentence not only as the prop er punishment of Fink himself, but In or der to deter others from the commission of Uke frauds In the future. Intending to live on It His game waa San Francisco. But he liked the ranch, and as toon at he got back to the office be would open up negotia tions wltb Hlllard. The time passed, and be played on the game. San Francisco a attl. tude toward Daylight had undergone change. While be, with his slashing buccaneer methods, waa a dlatlnct menace to tbe more orthodox finan cial gamblert, he waa nevertheless ao grave menace that tbey were glad enough to let him alone. He had al ready taught them the excellence of letting a sleeping dog lie. Dede Mason was still In the office. He bad made no more overturea, die cussed no more books. He bad no active lntereat In ber, and she wat to him a pleatant memory ot what had never happened, a joy, which, by hla essential nature, he was barred from ever knowing.

Beyond this he dared not go, though he got round It by making the work easier. This he had accomplished after her return from a vacation, by retaining her substitute as an aaslatant Also, he had changed bis office eulte, to that now the two girls had a room by them selves. The more be saw of her, and the more he thought he knew of her, the more unapproachable did she seem to him. But since he had no In tention of approaching ber, tbla waa anything but an unsatisfactory fact He was glad he had her in bis office, and hoped she'd stay, and that waa about all. Daylight did not Improve with the passing years. The life waa not good for him. He was growing stout and soft, and there waa unwonted flabbl- ness In hit muscles. The more he drank cocktails, the more he waa com pelled to drink In order to get the de sired reault, the Inhibitions that eased him down from the concert pitch ot his operatlona. And with this went wine, too, at meals, and the long drinks after dinner of 8cotch and soda at the Riverside.

'It la a peculiar fact," said a prom inent representative of The Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Com pany the other day, "that while the telephone entera to largely Into the commercial and aoclal life of the peo ple, lta real value la rarely recognlted until tome emergency arises. But once having played its part In an emer gency the little Instrument Is Imme diately given a high place In the re gard of the people Interested. "Let me give you some lllustra- tlona," continued the speaker. "One morning a traveling salesman left hit home In the Middle West for a trip on the toad. Several hours afterward his wife discovered to her horror, that he bad taken a bottle of poison from a cabinet by mistake, leaving behind his bottle ot medicine, of similar alze and shape. She was unable to say where ber husband might be found, not knowing even the state he was in, but asked the telephone company to find blm at all costs. The telephone oper ator railed his employer, got a Hat of twenty towns In which he might be lo cated, and began calling these one aft er another, asking for the salesman. In a short time he was run down, and talked directly to his wife, saying that ne had discovered the error and had written to have bis medicine sent on. It had not occurred to him that his wife would be alarmed. "A wife left home to visit friends In a town fifteen miles away. After ahe had cone, tome guests came unexpect edly. Her husband telephoned to a town midway betwen their home and the house his wife was bound tor, stating that she would change cart there and giving her description. A telephone messenger waited at the junction point, Intercepted the woman, brought her to the nearest telephone, and started her back home. "A physician wat called In the night to the home of a patient twenty miles away. After he had departed, newa came that a visit waa unnecessary, as the patient waa better. ' The doctor'! wife rsked the toll operator at the telephone exchange to intercept her husband, giving the direction In which he had gone. Within fifteen mlnutet he was found and turned back home, taving a long, uselees journey. "A aerlous emergency arose In a country home several mllea from the railroad. The head ot the family was off on an automobile trip, and .hla wife, with her sister, had gone to visit a friend. The letter's name wat not known, nor anything except that ahe jived in a certain Indefinite locality. It waa roost Important to find one or both parties Immediately. The tele phone operatora went to work on the clues. Railroad stations along the line most likely to be taken by tbe two wo men were called up, and the agents given their description. Presently a Itatlon agent waa found who had aeen them get off the last train and take a carriage. Uvery atables in that town were then called and within ten mln utet the women were found and con nected by telephone. Simultaneously, hotela along the route taken by the father In hla automobile were called. Finally It was learned that he had just left a certain town, taking the road leading to a neighboring place. The telephone exchange at the latter point waa notified, a messenger stationed In the road, and the father stopped when he came along. Both parties were lo cated In less than two hours. "In a case of serious Illness at night a trained nurse was wanted at a country home. Arrangements had been made for tbe tervicet of a nurse near by, but she could not he found. In this dilemma the telephone located an other nurse In a neighboring town and aend her to tbe subscriber's borne In a little more than an hour. These Inci dents are typical.
