WHAT SHE WANTED.
And Her Word* ot Endearment Never Moved the Man Behind the Counter. A fair young girl, perplexity written en her countenance, confronted the pale young man. He returned her gaze with the im- Eassive stare of one who had never seen her efore. Had he? Listen, says the Baltimore American. In a low, well-modulated voice, without the slightest trace of emotion or excitement, she says: “I want you. dear heart. I love you, my honey. Come back, my baby. Why did you throw me down? The latch string’s always hanging out for you. I've shook that oth“.r man. You’re the only fellow I love. I don’t like no cheap man. I ain’t seenijia Messen ger boy. Oh, promise me, and/Yil be true to you.” Was he moved? No. His face took on a bored expression, in a careless tone he asked: . “is that all?” “Yes,” she half whispered. “Two dollars and ten cents, please. We are having a special sale on sheet music to day, and they are reduced in/pricc. Thank you.” Then they drifted apart, she to practice rag time and he to flit from Beethoven to Williams-and-Walker all for the same sal ary per week. O--I--C When a preparation has an advertised rep utation that is world wide, it means that preparation is meritorious. If you go into a store to buy an article that has achieved universal popularity like Cascarets Candy Cathartic for example, you feel it has the endorsement of the world. The judgment of the people is infallible because it is im personal. The retailer who wants to sell you “something else” in place of the article you ask for, has an ax to grind. Don’t it stand to reason? He’s trying to sell something that is not what he represents it to be. Why? Because he expects to* derive an extra profit our of your credulity. Don’t you see through his little game? The man who will try to sell you a-substitute for Cascarets is a fraud. Beware of him! He is trying to steal the honestly earned benefits of a repu tation which another business man has paid for, and if his conscience will allow him to go so far, he will go farther. If he cheats bis customer in one way, he will in another and it is not safe to do business with him. Beware of the Casc-aret subeti tutor! Remember Cascarets are never sold in bulk but in metal boxes with the long tailed “C” on every box and each tablet stamped C. C. C. Sam Jones’ Strong Points. Rev. Dr. Frank Bristol, pastor of the Me tropolitan church, in Washington, which is attended by President McKinley, tells a story which he heard one evening while din ing at the white house with the president and Bishop Chandler, of the Methodist church south. The party was talking about revivalists and revivals, and the case of the well-known exhorter, Sam Jones, was brought up. “The best characterization of Sam Jones’ preaching 1 ever heard,” said the bishop, “was that of a good colored brother in Virginia. He had just heard Jones preach, and was describing it to some of his fellows. ‘Jist as long as Bre’r Jones 6tieks to de Scripters,’ said the colored man, ‘he ain’t no better preacher than eny uv de rist of us. But when he cuts loose from the Scripters and jist lets ’er sail, den he’s de doggondest preacher dat ever pounded a pulpit.’ ” —Pittsburgh Post.

It was now very dark, and as Rider had not dared to 'ight a fire there was nothing to guide his companion, who stumbled about as best he could, not daring to shout for fear he might alarm the party he had just been watching. lie became hope lessly lost at last and was about to give up the search until daylight when he heard a horse stamping. Confident there was no one but Rider near him, li<e called softly, and to his in tense' delight the sailor answered from a point not 20 yards away:- “Is that you, Bow’ers?” “Yes,” was the surly reply, as the big miner reached his side, “and I’ve had a nice time gittin’ here, too. I'm starved.” “Shall I light a fire?” asked Rider. “I’ve got it all ready, but I was skit tish about lighting it till I found out what you had seen.” “You don’t light no fire here,”growled the other. “We’ve got ter put up with cold grub to-night. We’ve been regular done for, we have!” “What’s the matter?” “Matter enuff! Inthe fustplace, that Tarbox chap we see start for Dyea has met a party an’ turned back. One o’ ther men is named Avery—” “Avery!” The mate’s teeth chattered as he gasped: “But I saw him buried at sea!” “Rot! Theremay be more’n one Avery in ther world! Didn’t- that letter say somethin’ ’bout a man named Bill that w’astocome? Course it did! Mebbeit’s the old chap’s brother or cousin or somethin’. “Then there’s two young chaps that looked like sailors an’ a young gal that I take ter be Avery’s darter by the w ay she stayed ’round him. They’ve routed out the chap as wrote the letter an' they’ve all gone into camp under a big cliff not more’n a mile from where we’re sit tin’ this minit.” “The young men must be Scott and the second mate,” said Eider, “and don’t you see these papers are no good to us after all our trouble? We can't do anything now hut give the thing up and make for the Klondike. We’ve got good out —” “Make for nothin’!” was the savage interruption. “Them men hev got a gold mine right ’round here somewheres and I've as much right- there as they hev if I can only find it. I’d like ter see ’em drive me off. You can go to the Klondike if yer like, hut yer don’t take any o’ this stuff with yer. See?” Like most bullies, Obcd , 'der was easily cowed by a bigg' . buily than himself, and he dared not make the re ply which came to his lips. Instead he said: “‘But I can’t join these men after tak ing these papers from Scott. There'd be trouble.” “I didn’t say I was goin’ to jine ’em. Look here, RideT, are yer seared or not? Here we are, two stout chaps with plen ty of grub an’ the horses. We knows jest whar them fellers are now 7 , an’ they don’t know whar we be. If w e keeps our eyes open thar's sure ter be a chance for business. Will yer stick ter me or not?” Eider had little choice. lie dared nol demand half the outfit his own money had purchased, and was forced to sub mit, so with a, show of sincerity he ex claimed: “Os course I’ll stick, Bowers!” “All right. Now, you keep watch the fust- half of ther nighit an’ call me for ther last. We’ve got ter be movin’ bright an’ early.” In five minutes the hardened rascal was snoring, while Eider stood guard. He had no stomach for Bowers’ com pany now, and would gladly have left him, but the miner had gained such an ascendancy over him that. he. dared not at tempt to leave him now 7 that he was asleep. He had meant to assault Tom Scott- and take his papers, but. his cu pidity was inflamed, and he had been drinking then. He was sober now, and the evident intention of his comrade to attempt, to bull} - or rob five armed men w 7 as quite another matter. Still, there was no help for it, and he tried to steel his cowardly heart to its work. Bowers relieved him at midnight, and as soon as the first streak of daylight could be seen he aroused the mate and said: “I'm off again. Stay here- and keep in under this hill as much as you can till I get back.” Once more lie made his way to the bowlder and took up his station. From his hiding place lie could see the dif ferent members of the party as they carried load after load out of sight among the rocks, but suddenly one of the men mounted a- horse and drove the rest directly toward the hidden w atcher. “What’s- he drivin’ at?” muttered Bowers to himself. As the ride r drew near the miner was forced to throw 7 himself at full length on the ground to escape being seen, and he fingered his revolver grimly. Tar box was too busy with the horses to look very sharply about him, and soon turned back after giving the. animals a few sharp blows, which sent them off at full speed. Then he returned to his party, and at last they had all disappeared from sight. Bowers waited until he was satisfied that they would nol reappear; then'he stretched his cramped limbs and hur ried back to Eider, who was impatient ly awaiting him. “What are they doing?” asked the latter, eagerly. ‘They’ve turned all their critters loose an’ hid away somewheres,” was the reply. “See here, Eider, I've got a scheme.” “A scheme?” “Thai's what I said. It’s a good one, too. Suppose you could find yer way back to Dyea?” “Os course I could. Why?” “I'm goin’ ter tell yer why. Thar’s aboul a dozen good critters turned loose. They’re worth S2OO apiece in Dyea, 1 Junno but more. You don’t tei wait ter put up a bluff an’ jine this party. We’ll ketch them horses an’ you drive ’em back to Dyea an’ sell ’em. Bring one spare critter back with yer fer me an’ one fer ther swag. When yer git back come ter thet big bowlder an’ jest, as ther sun is risin’ show 7 yer self a minit. That night hev the horses tliar an’ I’ll jine yer. Understan'?” “But- what are v ou goin’ to do?” “That’s my funeral. You do jest as I tell yer. Don’t make any slip. It wouldn’t be very healthy fer yer if yer went back on me. I'd foller yer all over kingdom come.” Eider jumped at- the proposal. Whether he would return or not was a question he could settle later on. At present it was enough to be rid of the desperate man who eyed him as if read ing his very thoughts. “You’ll come back. I shall have gold enough to make us both rich or else I shan’t be ’bove ground. I’m takin’ all the resk an,’ es yer don’t come back I shall prob’ly miss yer. I’ll do my part an’ you see you do yours.” It was evident that he was about to engage in. some desperate scheme, and Eider hastened to assure him that lie would be back as fast- as possible. “You’ll travel light an’ you orter be back in 12 days,” said Bowers. “I shall look fer yer ’bout that time. So long.” Eider started off on the back trail at once, and while be is making his way to Dyea we must follow 7 Hank Bowers as he rides around the bowlder and ap proaches the spot-where Tom Scotland his party had camped the night be fore. He had no means of telling whether liis approach was observed or not, but he rode boldly “forward and soon reached the deserted camp. Here he dismounted and walked toward the cliff between the scattered rocks in the same direction he had seen the outfit carried, “I’ll swear this is the way they went,” he said aloud as he paused before the face of the cliff and looked keen]} 7 about him. “They liain’t- got- wings an’ they must be here somewhere or they’d never drove off tliem horses. They’re in some place horses couldn’t be took, but whar is it-? Tain’t up ther valley, ’cause I seen ’em come in here with my own eyes.” For some time lie paced about the spot, examining each bowlder to see that there was no hiding place near it, but he could discover nothing- and] be-! gan to grow angry. “Wouldn’t it be slick if that cuss should sell the hosses an’ skip out an’ I shouldn’t- find these —Hello! What’s that!” His restless eyes at last noticed the mass of vines which covered the open ing in the cliff, and with a wrench he tore it aside. “I’ve got it. now,” he cried, as he en tered without hesitation and made his way along the rocky passage. “What luck! No wonder they let the critters go! This beats all I ever saw!” Ahead of him was a sharp turn, and just, before he reached it there was a crash like thunder, and an instant later the way was blocked by a massive rock which would have crushed him had he been a few feet further ahead. In spite of his wonderful nerve Bow ers was so slart-led that he uttered a shout of dismay, which reached the ears of the men above. CHAPTER XII. DIGGING A FORTUNE. Hank Bowers did not for a moment imagine that the big bowlder had fallen by accident. On the contrary he real ized it had been purposely rolled there to prevent his ingress. It followed, thdn, that- he had been seen approach ing the cliff. “There must be some sort of a valley behind this ’ere cliff,” he concluded, as he stood measuring the distance to the top of the obstructing stone with his eye, “an’ that feller won’t keep me out of it long.” With a confident air he retraced his steps to the opening and removed the packs from his horses. Then lie took a coil of rope on his arm and entered the cleft once more. Bowers had been a- cowboy once and was an expert with the lasso. lie had noticed a sharp spur on the upper side of the barrier, and with a dexterous cast he looped his rope around it at the first attempt. Then with an ag-ility really remarkable in so large a. man he drew himself up. about 20 feet, until he was able to secure a foothold and clamber over the top. To his surprise he saw no one, and without the least- sign of fear he climbed up the short .distance remain ing to be traversed and appeared be fore the astonished eyes of the little group, who were even then discussing the noise they had heard a few mo ments before. “Hello, pards,” he said, boldly ap proaching our friends. “Yer don’t seem over’n above glad ter see me, but I’m here. Now, what’s ter be done? I ain't a very revengeful sort o’ a cuss or I'd ask yer what yer meant by trying ter squash me with a couple o’ ton o’ rock jest- now.” His impudence kept the others quiet for a moment, and then Tarbox stepped forward and said, sternly: “You are not wanted here. You w 7 ere kicked out of Ladue’s for stealing, and your present partner is a. thief and. would-be murderer. Where is lie ?” “I've parted company with the low down skunk,” was the ready reply, as Bowers threw into his voice an excel lent assumption of indignation. “He owned up this rcornin’ that he’d stole them papers and dassent show his head here fer fear the man what owned ’em might hev passed us while we was off the trail. I told him ter git out an’ leave my company, and he’s gone back ter Dyea. That’s straight!” His manner was so earnest that he made an impression and was quick to notice it. Before anyone had time to reply lie- went on: “It's true 1 was kicked out o’ Joe Laduc’s, but I w as drunk an’ took some dust from a chap what was drunker’n I was. I had the craze fer licker on me an’ didn’t more’n half know what I w 7 as doin’. “Besides that,” he continued, seeing that he was gaining ground, “I've got a. good outfit down below here an’ I don't ask no.grub. I know you’ve struck it rich here an’ here's the papers ter prove it. I took ’em from that Eider afore he started off. All I want is ter stay here an’ make my pile. This is free ground anyway, an’ yer can’t drive me off if I want ter stay. Even if yer did clean me out I could bring hundreds o’ miners here in no tune by telling what I know. What is it-, pards, stay or light out for Dyea. and fetch the crowd?” As he paused for a reply the others looked blankly at each other. He had spoken the truth. He had a perfect right to stay. They could not murder him, and to drive him away would be to give the news of their mine to the world. Both Tarbox and Taylor realized that they had but one course to pursue. The pay streak Avas so crooked and shalloiv that it would be necessary to go over a large piece of ground to follow 7 it, and should their discovery leak out they would be confined to a claim apiece, where they noAv could pick and choose over the entire valley. Bowers Avatched them Avith an easy air as they spoke in loav tones for a moment, for he knew Avell they could but decide one Avay. Presently Dick Taylor said, bluntly: “What you say is true in regard to this place. We don’t Avant you, but we are obliged to have you. Get your stuff up out of sight. We will help you do that for our own sake. After that you av ill keep aAvay from our camp and dig all you please.” An hour later his outfit was in the valley, and as he busied himself putting up his tent- he Avore a self-satisfied ex pression that boded ill for the peace of the men upon Avhoni he had foi’ced himself so cleverly. But if Hank BoAvers could Imre been present at-a little conference that night he Avould not have congratulated him self so suddenly. He was a deep rascal, but he had different material to deal Avith than the sailor in Avhose company he had recently been. Dick Taylor was a very shrewd sort of a person, and while he had been forced to receive the stranger into his camp he Avas determined he should not remain there- after they were ready to have him go. To get rid of him in a Avay that Avould keep his tongue sealed in regard to the gold they had found was the problem and he had thought-of a ay ay which he hoped might answer tlieir purpose. That night he detailed his scheme to the others, and all agreed that it Avas the Avisest course, under the circum stances, What it- was 1 will develop later. “I don't believe a word about his breaking Avith that Rider,” he added, when the Avhole ground had been gone over. “There's no’ doubt in my mind that they’ve put up some job between them. There’s five of us, anyhow, and while he’s- in camp Ave must keep an eye open nigh ts. We’ll divide the time up, and it Avon’t come hard. We Avill stay in this tent, of course, and Ave AAon’t let him know but Avliat we’re, all asleep. He Avon’t do anything until Ave have a bigger pile than we’ve got noAV.” Their plans being arranged, the. little party separated for thonight, but Avery shared the cave Avith his daughter, as he thought it safer. This was also the repository of some $10,009 AA-orth of gold, which the two men had already taken from the spot. On the folloAving morning Avork Avas commenced in earnest, and the piles of dirt began to melt away before the vig orous attacks of the men, Avhile Hank Bowers dug manfully by himself a-short distance away, apparently satisfied to take them at their word, lie Avas an experienced miner, and his little pile of dust- grew steadily. That, night the result of their com bined. efforts Avas nearly SI,OOO, and Tom. .Scott could hardly be content, to take the necessary time for sleep. It seemed to him that his- fortune Avas al ready made. Three days of unremitting toil fol loAved, the average being a little less than the first day. Then Avery said, as they Avere starting out the fourth morning: “Taylor, Ave are diggingin theAvrong placet altogether.” “The wrong place?” “Yes, that’s what I said. I’ve Avaited to see hoAV rich this dirt is and I am not satisfied. Don't you see, Dick, you have been digging here by a stream that runs now, but it. isn’t the stream that cut that big hole through the face of the cliff. That goes off in another direc tion altogether, you see. “Perhaps a hundred or a thousand years ago this stream wasn’t running at all. No ay, Avhere must the bed of the stream have been, that did cut its way through that rock? You can see it must have been over there on the other side of the ridge. I’ll bet that old stream ran thousands of years before it dried up. It must have.” “How do you know?” asked Tom, in Avonder. “Because it would take that long to Avoar through the rock as it did. It-Ava9 a bigger stream than this by a good deal. See those big stones scattered all around in its bed. It must have been a powerful stream to start them, and there they are e very aaTi ere.” “By thunder, I believe you're right!” cried Taylor, excitedly. “I car. se.e it now. I ought to have known it at first, but Ave struck good paying dirt on this side, and didn’t prospect any further. Come on, let’s try OA r er there!” “Hold on a- bit,” replied Avery. “You’re not headed for the best place.” The others looked at him to see if he was joking, but liis l face AA'as very earnest, and he Avent on: “It makes lots of difference Avhere avc dig. We may be surprised here any day and can’t hope to keep this place to ourselves a great while. We don't Avant to Avast ea. day. Just lock at that bend where the round pebbles are collected. There ay as- a strong eddy jus-t there. Un der the ridge cf such a place is apt to be more gold than anywhere else. Let s t rv there first, and if we don t find gold I’m no prophet.” liis Avords carried conviction, and the partA' seized their shoA'els and hurried to the spot at-once. They found it eov ered Avith shingle, the debris of cen turies. Below Avasa little dirt, and then they struck a layer of gravel. Tom Scott was working with all hi.- might. He had taken about a foot of gravel from the place about a yard square, when, ns he drove his shovel down, it. struck something which felt like a rock. A moment later he had laid bare a fcAv inches of rough, shaly sur face. just as the others also struck the same obstruction. "I guess I've struck bottom,” he said ruefully. ‘‘We can t dig here. As lie spoke he scraped the surface of the rock under liis. feet carelessly with, hi S’ shovel. Something yellow caught his eye, and, with a little exclamation of surprise, he dropped on his knees and brushed away the dirt about- it. [TO nn CONTINUED.] Snored in (he Wrong Key. A weary congressman who could "snore upon the flint” occupied a room adjoining a German musician’s. “You will have to give me another room, I guess/’ said the congressman to the hotel clerk. “What’s the matter?
