"I guess I'll stay here to-night so as to be ready for the mornin'," said the caller, to Dixon s astonishment; and then the little fellow, broke into a sil- very laugh. . ; ' . ; : T "By Jimmlhyll tIf It. isn't well, I ; five In," Miss.'

"Come here for a minute.1 This is a boy" he turned his head away "I'm takin on for Lauzanne." 0h," said Mrs. Dixon. Then, with severe politeness, "Good evenin', young man." . . , , The two figures In male attire broke Into a- smile simultaneously. .-The good lady, oblivious to the humorous side of her greeting, flushed in anger. "Appears to be mighty funny," v she said. "What's the Joke V "Oh, nuthln'," replied her husband, peaking hastily. "Can you give the lad a bed? He wants to hunk here. "Why, Andy, - you know v I can't. There's only Miss Allis' room.''"--.- "Give her him that." "Are you crazy, Andy?" -"It's too bad, Mrs. Dixon; I shant let your husband tease you any more, I am Allis; but I'm glad you didn't know." "Oh, Miss Allis,; Where's your beau tiful hair gone? .Surely, yqu didn't cut that oft just for a, joke? ' ' Then she was taken fully into their confidence; and before , Allis reUred Dixon had been quite won over to the plan, of AUia' endeavor. In the morning the trainer asked the girl whether she would ride Lauzanne a working gallop, or would she lust wait until race day and take her place in the saddle then. , .' "I'm afraid Mike'll spot you,' he aid "even Carter may." "Ill ride to-day," declared Allis; , "I mustn't take any chances of losing this race through my inexperience. Even Lauzanne will hardly know me, I'm afraid." "Here's a boy's sweater, then," said Dixon, "the collar'll half, hide your face. I'll get a pair of ridin' breeche a' boots for you to-morrow. The little mare's in for it sure," he added; "her legs are sweilin' an' she's off her feed just nibbles at a carrot. I feel as bad as if it was a child that was sick, he's that genUe. You're still bound to ride the chestnut?" , he , asked, by way of assurance. ... "Yes, I am." "Well, we'll get five pounds off the weight for -prentice allowance' that's somethin'. ' I'll arrange about' a permit the chief topic lonig pair; for you. What did you say your name iras. Mister?" "Al Mayne, piease, sir," tms in iuo humble tones of a stable boy. "Well, Miss Al, . I mean you can carry Lauzanne around her course at nine o'clock. sharp ;, then you'd better come back here and, rest up all day-r- lay low." "A new boy, I'm tryin," Dixon ex plained to Gaynor, after he had lifted a little lad to Lauzanne's back at the paddock gate, and they stood watching the big chestnut swing along with his usual sluggish stride N When , Allis came . around and back to the paddock, . she slipped , quietly from the horse, loitered carelessly, about for a few minutes, and then made her way back to Dixon's quarJ ters. Nobody had paid the slightest attention to the modest little boy. Rid ing lads were as plentiful as sparrows. "How did the horse like" !t?" Dixon asked .of the girl, when she returned hOme. ' ''!- 1. V ;fri" I.'----.,.-" "Oh, he knew. , I whispered iri his ear as we cantered along, 'and he'll be all right he'll keep my secret." "Well, I think he's due for a pipe opener to-morrow. It's just three days till the derby, an' we've got to give him a strong workout. 'To-morrow mornin' you had better canter fciiaVJusst slow around once, and therf send Mm a full mile an' a quarter .. as though there was money bung up for it. I'll catch his time, an' we'll get wise to what he can do." This program was carried out, and Dixon looked thrice at his watch after the gallop to make sure that he was not. mistaken in the time, 2:11. "He can move; he surprised me," the traiper said to Allis, as she 'dis mounted. "He's not . blown, either. Gad! we'll do those blackguards up yet, I believe." The gallop had attracted Mike's at tention also. As, Allis moved away he called after her, "I say,- b'y, hould on a minute. What's yer name, enny way?" . , "Al." answered the small voice. "Well, by me faith, ye didn't put-up no bad roide. Ye handled that horse foine. Don't run away, lad." he added, hurrying after the retreating Allis. Before she could escape him, he had caught her by the arm, and turned about face to face. Even then he didn't recognize her, for Allis had taken a most subtle precaution In her make-up. The delicate olive of her cheeks was hidden under a more than liberal al lowance of good agricultural cosmet Ique. "Lord, what a doirty face!" exclaim ed Mike. "But ye kin roide, b'y; so dirt don't count; clean ridln's the thing.". If Allis hadn't laughed in his face, Mike would not have recognized jher even then he didn't hit it off quite: nt "Alan Porter I" he gasped. "Bof fnmbs up!: Is It ye Vy?'.y v "Hush!" and a small warning finger was held up. "Don't fear, :b'y, that I'll give it away. Mum's the word wit' me. But I'm d d if I fought ye could roide like that It's just In the breed, that's what it is. Yer father could roide a- fore ye; none better, an', Miss Allis can. sit. a horse foiner nor any b'y as Isn't a top-notcher. But this beats me, .t'umbs up, if It doesn't . I onder stand," he continued,, as Allis showed an inclination to travel, "ye don't want the push to get on to ye. They won't nayther what did ye" say yer name was, sonny?" "Al Mayne." "Ye'r a good b'y, Al" . As Allis moved away, Mike stood watching the neat figure. "That's the game, eh?" he muttered to himself; "the gal don't trust Red path no more'n I do. The b'y didn't finish on LucreUa an that's all there Is to it. But how's Alan goin to turn the trick In a big field of rough ridin' b'ys? If it was the gurl herself " a sudden' brilliant idea threw: Its strong light through Mike's brain pan. He took a dozen quick shuffling steps after Allis, then stopped as suddenly as he had started. "Mother a Moses! but I believe it's the gurl; that's why the chestnut galloped as if he had her on his back. Jasus! he had." xxix. The news that Lucretia was sick had got about. The Porters' stable travel ed out in the betting for the Brooklyn derby until a backer it there nad been one could have written his own price and &ot it. ' ; "", Langdon had, informed. Crane 'of this;, change in their favor. A'..' 'VI .',,'"'' - T'' "I'm sorry that Porter's mare has gone wrong," Crane said. "I think we would have won anyway, but it'll just about ruin them." Figuratively, Langdon closed one eye and winked to himself. , J ist as. they thought they had de stroyed the. chances of their strongest . opponent eame a new distur Ding fea ture. Other eyes than Dixon's had seen Lauzanne's strong gallop; other watches than his had ticked off the ex traordinary good . time, 2 : 11 for the mile and t a quarter, with the horse seemingly running well within himself, never urged a foot of the journey, and finishing strong, was almost good enough to warrant his winning. Langdon also had observed the gal lop. , And the same boy was to ride Lauzanne in the race, he understood, for Redpath had been released and was looking for another mount Langdon admitted that he had never seen such improvement in a horse as had been made in Lauzanne. Shandy had told, him that it was Miss Porter's doing, that she had cured him of his sulky moods; the. gallop Langdon had wit nessed seemed to bear put the truth of . this. What was he to do? They couldn'tf repeat the trick they had play ed on Lucretia. The Dutchman might win; he had worked the full derby dis tance a mile , and a half in 2:45, nearly all out at the finish. Lauzanne's gallop- was only a mile" and a quarter;' he might not be able to stay the addi tional quarter, but there was ten thousand dollars at stake for Langdon. He sought to discover the identity of Lauzanne's rider; but nobody knew him. Perhaps he could be got at; that would simplify matters greatly. The morning after her fast work, on Lauzanne, Allis arrived at the course before the horses. As she was leaning over the paddock rail waiting forr Laui zanne to come, Langdon sauntered up carelessly to the girl and commenced to talk. After a free preliminary ob servation, he said: "You're the boy that's ridin for Andy Dixon, ain't you?" The small figure nodded its head. . "I seen you gallop that chestnut yes terday.. Where you been ridin' you're a stranger here, I reckon?" - "Out west," answered Allis, at a haz ard. -.---r,. -fr 1 "Oh, San Francisco, eh? Are you engaged to Dixon?" "I'm just on trial." v "Goin to ride the chestnut In the race?" Again the boy nodded. ' - He ain't no good he's a.bad hors. I guess I've got the winner of that race in my siauie. s ; 11 ur vv iuo, i u sign you for a year. I like the way you ride. I might give you a thousand for a' contract, an losin' and winnln' mounts when you had a leg up. How do yoti like ridin' for.Dixonr "I ain't goin' to ride for. him no mere after, this race," answered the other, ' ' ' ' '" -.'X ,'- "I don't blame you. He's no good; he. don, never give his boys a chance. They ain't got no -money, that's why. The owner of . my candidate. The Dutchman, he's a rich man, an" won't think nothin' of givin' a retainer of a thousand if we won the race. - That'll mean The Dutchman's - a good : horse, 'and we'll want'' a good light boy to ride him. see?" x Allis did see. Langdon 'was diplo matically giving her to understand that if she threw the race on Lauzanne, she would get a place in their stable at a retainer of a thousand dollars. . - "We can afford' it if we win the race," he continued, , "for we stand a big stake. Oome and see rae any time you like to talk this over." After he had gone, just as Allis was leaving the rail, she was again accost ed, this time by Shandy. "Good mornin!, boy," he said, cheer ily. "I used to be in Dixon's stable. It's hell; and he's a swipe. I see my boss taikin' to you just now. Did he put you next a good thing?" Allis nodded her head, knowingly. "He's all right. So's the other one the guy as has got the mun; he's got a bank full of it. I'm on to him; his name's Crane " Allis started. "You don't know him," continued the imp, "he's too slick to go messln' about But if the old man has prom ised you anything, God blast me, you'll git it Not like that other skin-flint hole where you don't git nothin. I stand in five hundred if our horse wins the derby." s ; "Do you ride him?" askecr Al Mayne. , "Ride nothin'. I don't have to. I've did' my Job already." "I don't believe they'll give you five hundred for ! nothin'," " said Allis, doubtedly, knowing that the boy's obstinate nature would drive mm into further explanation. "Say, you're a. stiff. What'd the old man want you to do pull Lauzanne?" Allis nodded. - "I knowed it. What was the use of stoppin' the mare, an' let the chest nut spoil the job?" rj:-ij.- "Is that what you get the five hun dred for?" asked Allis, a sudden sus picion forcing itself upon her. "Say, what d'you take me fer, a flat car? But she's sick, ain't she?. An' you jes' take care of the chestnut now, an' I'll give you a hundred out of my five, God bli' me if I don't." As he spoke Shandy looked hastily about to see that no one was listening, then he continued: "If you give me the double cross an peach, ' I'll split yer head open." His small eyes blazed with venomous fury. 1 But I'll give you the hundred, s'help me God! I will, if you don't ride the chestnut out. Mum's the word," he added, bolting sudden ly, for Dixon h1 entered the r -'".dock with his horses. With the horse3 also came Mike Gay nor. While their blankets were being taken off and saddles adjusted he came over to Allis There was a suppressed twinkle in his weather-beaten eyes. "Good mornin', Al," he said, and putting a strong accent on the name. Mike had determined to keep from the girl the fact that he had penetrated her disguise. With Irish gallantry, he reasoned that his knowledge might make her uncomfortable. , ' ' "I see that fly-by-night divll Shandy taikin' to ye as I come in. What new mischief is he up to now?" , "He wants me to pull Lauzanne." . "He ain't got no gall," has he? That come from headquarters; It's Langdon put him up to that." "He was taikin' to me, too." , "I fought he would . be. .. But he didn't know ye, Miss Allis " Heavens! .It was out Mike's sun tanned face turned brick-red; he could have bitten off his unruly Irish tongue. The girl stared at him helplessly, her oer the, hot rush of blood. . . ft " ."There ye are, an' believe f "me;- I didn't mean it. I was goin to keep me mouth shut, but I never could do that" ' "You knew then, yesterday?" "Indade I didn't, an' that's a good sign to ye nobody '11 know. But whin I fought wlf meself I knowed that Alan couldn't ride Lauzanne the way'ye i did J ' an' ye didn't deny ye was him, an if ye ', wasn't him yp must be yerseif, see? I think ye 're doin just right, Miss Al, I mean; s'help me, I believe ye'H win on the chestnut that gallop was good enough." "Do. you think I can do it, Mike, -nnnsr all thnse lockftvin ?" ' 1 '' .. " t 'Siiirft thing, ye can, A AJW'yJ ne won't need no nam' m yer nanas; all ye'll have to do is sit still an' keep him straight He'll win the race in the stretch. I'll just kape close to ye an' kape any wan that's likely to spot ye away, if I have to knock him down." '' ;; y- , Then the girl told Mike all that Shandy and Langdon had said. It only confirmed Mike's opinion that between them they had poisoned Lucretia. He felt' that with a little more evidence he would be able to prove both crimes -the one with Diablo and the one with Lucretia. -'-';.; s,r:i-:-, :' ;V5; The Brooklyn derby was to be run the next day. Allis was glad that It was so near; she dreaded discovery. : 1. .' ..V xxx.. , After Crane left the. money, for Por iter's , note with Mortimer the. clatter took -the three one'-thousandsdoliaT' bills, 'pinned them to the note, placed them carefully in a cigar box and put the box away carefully in the bank safe, to remain there until the 14th of June, when It became due. Incident ally Mortimer mentioned this matter to Alan Porter. , Crane In writing to the cashier, :stated that he had left the moneywith Mr. Mortimer to meet the 'note- when; it matured. .:;-'; 1 v? i The day before the derby, the 12th of the month, Alan asked his ; day's leave and got it 1 Crane had intimated In his letter that It would please him if the lad were to have a holiday.' . i . Alan went up to New York that, ev-. ening. Earlier in the day he somewhat hesitatingly confided to Mcirtimer'ttiat he had backed Lucretia' when she was well; now she, was scratched, and his money . was lost. Bearing in mind what Crane had said about The Dutch man's chances of winning, even with Lucretia In the race, he felt now that it appeared almost like a certainty for Crane's horse.. If he could have a bet on The Dutchman he could surely ie coup his losses. Alan ' explained all tlKuje racing matters very' minutely and with great earnestness to' Mortimer, for the latter wa3 quite familiar with the science of gambling. Having stated 'his predicament he wound up by ask ing his companion for a loan 'of two hundred dollars. . Mortimer had little les3 horror of betting and it's evil influence, than Mrs. Porter, but under the circumstance lie would perhaps have complied with the boy's request had he been provided with sufficient funds. As it was, he said: "I don't, like the idea of lending you money to bet with, Alan; if you lost it you'd feel uncomfortable owing me the money. At any rate, I haven't got it." , ' "Oh, never mind, then," answered Alan, angrily, stiffening up, .because of Mortimer s lecture. . ' . "I'll lend you what I've got." "I don't want it. I can get it some other place." - "You'd better take " 'Take nothing I don't want it," Mortimer remained silent. What was the use of angering the boy further? He would be all right in a day or two. During the rest of the day Alan pro served a surly distance of manner, speaking to Mortimer only once a con strained request lor a bunch of keys in the latter's possession which un locked some private drawers . in the vault. . 4 - The next morning it suddenly occurred to Mortimer that Porter's note fell sue that day either that day. or the next, he wasn't sure. The easiest way to ttle the question was to look at the dt on the note. , .. -. He 'stepped into the vault, took out the little cigar box, opened it, and as he handled the crisp papers a madden shock of horror ran tnrougn his frame. One of the bills was gone; ther were only two one-thousand-dollar notet left The. discovery paralyzed him for an instant He was responsible; the money had been left In his charge. Then he looked at the note; it matured the next day. All the money had been in the box the morning before,: for he - had looked at it. Only the cashier and Alan Porter knew that it was in the vault. The whole dreadful truth came clear ly to Mortimer's mind with absolute con viction. Alan, infatuated, with the pros pect of wjnning a large sum over The Dutchman, and failing to borrow from him, had taken the money. Bit by bit he pieced it out The boy. Inconsistently enough, had reasoned that the money was his father's, and that he was only - borrowing family property. No : doubt he had felt sure of winning, and that he would be back in time to replace the thousand before It was needed. '''"' : , ; "', But if the boy lost the money, what would happen? He couldn't repay it; : the shortage would be discovered anil Allis' brother would be ruined, brand ed, as a thief..' . ;.;'",; Mortimer would willingly put the" money back himself for Allis' sake, but he hadn't it What was he to do? If he could find Alan and force him to give .up . the stolen money he could yet save the bey. But Alan had gone to Graves end." i '' I Like an Inspiration the thought came to Mortimer that he must go after him and get the money before it was lost. He shoved the box back In its place, and came out into the office. ! , - The cashier had not come yet Morti mer's mind worked rapidly. He must make some excuse and get away; any thing; he must even lie; If he saved the boy it-would be justifiable Why did not the cashier come? Each minute seemed an age. He would need money. He drew a check for a hundred dollars. A hasty inspection showed that he still had a trifle more than this amount to his credit Why he took a hundred he hardly knew; fate seemed writing the eheek; He had barely finished, when the eashler 'appeared. At once Morti mer spoke to him. , v; "I want leave of absence to-day, sir," be said, speaking hurriedly. 0 , v ' The cashier frowned in astonishment "Impossible! We are short-handed with young Porter away." "I'll be back in the morning," pleaded Mortimer. "My mother is very ill. I've opened up, and Mr. Cass can manage, I'm sure, if you'll let me go. I wouldn't ask it, but it's a matter of almost life and death." Unwillingly , the . cashier consented. Mortimer almost ran to the station. At eleven o'clock he got a train for New York. At tT'ri-" h w? in town. ' , (To, Be Continued.) GIRL KILLS BIS LION. Hbi a Narrow Bacape from , Death ' While II ant lite Jack Rabbit. . -Far front Her, Hou. Attacked by a huge mountain Hon, Tessle Edwards, a . 12-year-old girl; of Clarks Fork, Utah, not only escaped In jury, but killed the fierce beast. ' Miss Edwards was out with a rifle aft er jack-rabbits, and had wandered eral miles from her home. She had en tered a clump of trees, when she heard a movement behind her, Instinctively she jumped to one side just in time to ,escape the claws of a big mountain, lion who pounced on the spot she had just left. The girl hastily fired a ehot at the animal and attempted to run. The beast, TRIED TO REACH HIS TREY. though wounded, prepared for another .spring and . Miss Edwards again fired. Hard hit this time, the beast fell. uA';2 . Snarling and crawling toward the girl. who was cornered among the brush un able to get out" of the way, the lion still tried to reach his prey. A shell stuck in the rifle long enough to give him time to wriggle close to the girl, but; she managed- - to adjust it and, taking" 'de liberate aim,' she fired, her last shq't!: This Eottled the animal.

One victim to the habit, a woman, openly confessed recently to having. traveled over 100,000, miles in pursuit of her hobby, during which lime she had expended, entirely on keys, quite a respectable fortune. Hw collection comprises the key of the Nuremberg iron" virgin; one said- to have belonged to Cleopatra's JeweJ case; a huge iron specimen from the tower of London, picked . up in a Wardour street shop; the one that used to unlock Anne Hathaway's cot tage at St.ratford-on-Avon; and many others equally curious and interesting.
