A Story of Plans That Miscarried By CLARISSA MACKIE It was rather dull now at the ship yard, and in consequence [.em I'eters was sitting idly on the wharf, swing ing Iiis feet and waiting fur the ar rival of the daily steamer from the city across the sound. The departure and arrival of the Dunton were matters of daily excitement in (Juaiik village. In winter, when the harbor was frozen over and the Dunton was icebound at her wharf, things were very dull indeed in the remote village. Rut today, in the late autumn, the weather was still mild, with a haziness in the air that was suggestive of dis tant forest Ii res. The cliffs that em braced the harbor in two long protect ing arms were clothed with ancient cedars and sturdy oaks the oaks were dripping a golden shower of leaves against the dark background of the cedars. The bay was deep blue, with little whitecapped waves that broke crisply. The sun shone brightly, and the west wind murmured gently. Lem Peters pulled gently at his pipe and dreamed of many adventures he had shared with little Captain Charlie Sayles, whose tight little schooner, the Rosy Dawn, lay at anchor a half mile down the bay. Their last adventure had led them down among the Florida keys in search of the fabled fountain of youth and the hidden treasure of that famotis pirate. Black Duffy. They had return ed richer in experience, but poorer by some hundred dollars. That had happened a year ago. and now the wanderlust was upon Lem Peters again, and It also gripped Cap tain Charlie Sayles. "I'm going aboard the schooner. Lem. Want to come?" Captain Char lie's bluff voice broke In on Lem's pleasant somnolence. "Uh-huh," agreed I,em, and he fol lowed Captain Charlie down the ladder to the little boat that bobbed in the rising tide. In silence the two men rowed out to the Rosy Dawn, and it was not until they had boarded her and were sitting side by side in comfortable chairs under the canvas awning that the silence was broken. "You got something up your sleeve, cap'n." ventured Lem hopefully. Captain Charlie spat thoughtfully. "I got an idee." he said, with a wary glance around as if he expected his wife, Elsie, might be within listening distance. "What is ItV" "Vou remember a steamer went down off No Point three years ago?" "Yes, dead of winter, howling gale, wasn't it? Everybody saved except the vessel. I remember. I heard there was considerable money aboard of her and"— "That's what I'm after," said Cap tain Charlie quietly. "Jerooshelum! How do you figger. en doing It? I ain't no diver, you know," Lem hastened to explain. "No more am I." retorted the captain irascibly, "and I ain't a consarned fool neither! That there steamer went down off the long jagged rock off No Point. Well 1 was around there t'oth er day, fishing for blues, and, Lern, I seen her ribs down there, and I found this here on the beach." He dropped a dull looking coin into I.em's horny palm. "What do you call that, eh?" lie ask ed, with thinly veiled triumph in his tone. Lem examined it. polished it on Iiis blue flannel sleeve and calmly pro nounced it a twe:ity dollar gold piece. "I'll bet there's a sight more where you found that." lie hazarded. "There ought tc be." agreed the cap tain. "Dare you to come along and find out!" "Take you. When you going to start?" "Tonight. KulI moon. Light as day. Don't want no talk about it. Jest hist sail and slip out while all the folks is dancing at the firemen's ball. If we can clear up a few hundred of these here coins I'll lie satisfied. What say. I.ein?" The captain punched Iiis friend In the ribs with a playful fore linger. "Sure. But. cap'n. how we going to get hold of the money? It's not all washed up on the beach and" "1 got a small oyster dredger—a hand dredger that belonged to my brother Hiram." explained the captain patient ly. "I've overhauled I he donkey en gine and got it rigged up under the tarpaulin yonder" lie pointed to a lumpy mound, on the fo red eck. "One of us 'II bring up the mud. and t'other can poke around in it for gold. What say?" "Captain Charlie." saiVI I .em. with slow emphasis, "you got a head on you." "Oh. I dunno. but I bound to git rich some day:" responded the captain modestly. "There ain't nothing to he said to the wimmen folks about this, eh?" "Not a hanged thing:" cried the cap- tnIn.

"They think it's contra pted non sense," muttered I.yiu. thinking of Iiis busy little wile. I The midnight moon found the Rosy Dawn riding at anchor off No Point. The sand faced cliffs rau steeply down to the beach, and now with a steadily rising tide the water was washing the base of the clill's. Clouds scudded across the sky and now and then an ugly puff of wind from the northeast. The two adven turers. one at the donkey engine, the other paddling around in the tank of oozy mud that the dredger disgorged, shivered with the chill of the ap proaching storm. Loin I'eters by the light of a lantern had searched the mud and had found a large coin. To their disgust, it proved to be an l'.lig lish penny instead of the gold Miey sought. Clink, clank, creaked the old engine, while Captain Charlie swore pictur esquely as he labored over its balky machinery. Paddle and splash went I.em's pad dle as he worked in tlie mud. At last he found a gold coin and another. In citement ran high. The two treasure hunters forgot the rising storm. They did not see that the moon had hidden her face nor that the Rosy Dawn had dragged her anchor and was boring toward the rock strewn beach. The lust for gold was in their eager eyes, and they worked frantically now. both of them plunging their hands into the dark mass salvaged from the sea. "She's rocking some!" panted Cap tain Charlie as the Rosy Dawn lurched uncertainly. "But. Lem. we're bound to be rich men before morning.'' "Sure thing!" puffed Lem as be un covered another muddy coin. "Gee, cap'n. this was a great thought of yours." "Yes—uh-uh-uhumph!" The doughty little captain's voice ended in a shrill shout as the bow of the Rosy Dawn lifted high in the air and then drove down with a mighty crash. The two startled adventurers were precipitated into the tank of mud. while the decrepit donkey engine gave one horrid shriek and was still forever. When the two men faced each other in the dim light of the smoky lantern their faces were plastered with mud. and only their white, scared eyes were visible each to the other. "Gone ashore, by grass!" shouted Lem Peters* "My poor Rosy Dawn!" groaned Cap tain Charlie as lie clambered out on deck. As they stood there, peering up at the beetling cliff above, the clouds broke away from the moon and show ed them that the stanch little schooner was high and dry on No Point beach. "We'll be the laftinstock of all Quank!" groaned the captain once more as he realized their painful posi tion. "It's the wiiumen folks I mind most." said Lem gloomily. Aud at that very moment laughter broke in on their despondent murmur ings. With one accord they turned frightened faces toward the deckhouse of the schooner, to start back in affright as a broad glow of light shot up from the open companion way. Then appear ed two heads side by side. They were feminine heads, and they were follow ed by the substantial forms of Mrs. El sie Sayles and Lem Peters' wife. And Mrs. Sayles and Mrs. Peters were laughing heartily, and when they saw the faces of the mud bespattered ad venturers they laughed more than ever. The doughty little captain took um brage and shook his list angrily. "What does this mean. Elsie?" he de manded. Mrs. Sayles ceased her laughter for a moment. "Lizzie and me have founjjl out that you two need gardeens," she'explaincd. "So when we suspected you was hatch ing up more ridiculous trouble for your selves, why. we jest made tip our minds to come along. When you and Lem came aboard the Rosy Dawn we was all settled down in the spare state room, and we've had a reel nice time enjoying how two big men can rastle so hard for a few dollars. And. Cap tain Charlie. I'm thinking Quank- folks will lall when they hear about the Rosy Dawn going ashore almost to home!" Lem I'eters' wife spoke up now. "But if yon ami Lem'll divide tip them gold pieces with ns we won't breathe a word," she said. "Done!" said the two adventurers eagerly. Captain Charlie sniffed the air hungrily "Seems like I smell ham frying, but I didn bring no cook along." he mut tered dazedly. "Yes. you did: yon brought two cooks. Lizzie and I've got supper all ready—ham and corn bread -and. cap'n, I guess you and Lem better go and wash some of that there nind off if you want some supper." While they removed the mud from their faces captain Charlie turned his little nutcracker countenance to his friend. "How much will we have left out of this here gold after the wimmen git. their share?" lie asked. "I reckon about one Knglish penny apiece." answered l.oin iioomilv ••••••••••••eeeeeeeeeeeeee HIS I EDUCATION! s. It Was In Two Lines, Both Valuable O O O By JOHN TURNLEE ••••••eeeeeeeeeeeeee eee I Tom A insworth was for many years a prospector in western gold fields. He missed several chances to make a for tune on account of not being able to analyze I he dirt he took out of his holes. He was not even ordinarily educated. On one occasion he took a specimen of ore to a chemist for an assay and was told that there was no gold in it. A few days later a man came along and offered Ainswortli $100 for his claim. Tom's wife was ill at the time, and his boy, Charley, was without a decent suit of clothes The offer was accepted and a deed to.the |iro|ierty passed. It turned out thai the chemist had found some gold in the specimen lie had assayed and had bought the property through another, The mine turned out a bonanza. This is a specimen of the way Tom Ainswortli got swindled. Neverthe less most uf the time he kept his son at school, and when the boy came to lie seventeen years old his father de termined to send him to college. Char lie had not shown much proficiency in his studies, but had manifested a fan c.v for science. He was fond of hunt ing and climbing and all out of door sports, besides constantly wondering why some rocks lay flat and others stood up on end. His father thought he saw in this the material for mak ing a mining engineer, and with a son to advise him on his digging opera I tlons he might yet strike and hold on I to a bonanza. So Charlie went away to college, His father feared that his taste for out of door sports would overtop his desire to learn and during his son's college course kept himself Informed as to what Charlie was doing. The ßrst news of an honor conferred on his boy was disappointing. Instead of being given for an essay on some chemical subject, it was an appoint I inent ns pitcher of the university base ball team. Charley spent most of his time for two years in college attending to nth letlcs and neglecting his studies. Then, being two years oir.T than when he entered, he grew ashamed of himself. He was a practical chap at bottom and began to look at the subject practi cally. His main object was to set him self right with his father. What was the surest way? He decided to leave the academical department of the uni versity and enter a school of mines. To mining engineering he devoted him self as exclusively as he had to athlet ics and after taking his degree return ed to his home, ready, for an applica tion of what he had learned. "1 forgive you. Charley." said his fa ther, "for the time wasted in pitehln' balls, eonslderin' what you done In larnin' about mines." "You can't tell, father." replied Char ley, "what's going to be most useful to a fellow in this world. During those two years 1 was practicing those curves 1 was laying the foundation for good health, though I'll admit that it was the scientific reasons for the curves that Interested me more than the physical exercise." "Reckon that was it, Charley. You was always wonderln' why things was so." Charley AI ns worth began to practice his profession about the time that gold was discovered in a new region, and nothing would do but that the family must pick up. bag and baggage, and seek its fortune in the latest opened territory. Mrs. Ainswortli, who had been with her husband through sev eral experiences in nearby discovered gold fields and knew that the people in them were like a large pack of dogs lighting for a very few bones, was loath to go, but the men of the fa mil) overruled her. Charley, whose muscles seemed to crave exertion, resolved to suspend professional work for others and give himself solely to repaying his father for the education he had given him So the two went to work with pick and shovel, and Tom Ainswortli found that what lie I lad always believed about the importance of his own assaying was true. Charley could form opin ions from the character of the rocks and the soli, the way they lay together and their tilt, which were very valua ble. Besides, he could assay any spec imens hey suspected of being valua ble ami get the result at once without going lo an assayer. who might deceive them So the old man was happy, even if they did not discover a mine. I Whether from Charley's knowledge 1 of minerals or from sheer luck, a very valuable piece of property was struck by the two men. Charley one day as saved some ore from a new opening. a nil it fumed out very handsomely. Moreover, the vein from which it was taken opened instead -if closed as they dug down. They kept their secret: but. as ill luck would have it. the par ties digging on the next -laim struck in continuation of the sane vein, but at. its end. following it toward the Ainswortli property. I hey found that It opened in that direction, showing that, though their own property was of lit tle value, that of their neighbors was liable to lie a bonanza. The--o neighbors were three tough*, named Harding. Murphy and Gnnn. They resolved to drive off Tom and Charley Aliiswonh h,!ng to ,io s0 before they should dis, o\ ei the value of their property, for if I hey knew of the vein they possessed they might filr-' lily themselves: if they did not know it they might be easily frightened into abandoning it. If the three men could not scare the owners they might kill them in a free light, which would be lawful in that lawless country. III.nigh murder was apt to be punish I i,v vigilance committee. Meanwhile Tom aud hi v. working a way with a \i out as much as possible ,,, lure of their mine, its pa ,g iiri,v and its extent, after Iii ha LEV V. !S to go back to the east and get capital, for its development. The family lived on the property in a lint it bail built. One evening one of I lie neighbors. Harding, came to the hut with a dirty piece of paper on which something had been written and handed it to Tom Ainswortli. "What's this?" asked the latter. "It's a deed to this property you're nil." "If that's what it is I decline to read it." Harding folded the paper aud put It in Iiis pocket, saying: "This yere property belongs to me and my pals, and yer wants to under stand that we hain't got no use for claim jumpers. We'll give you till tomorrer inornin' at 11 o'clock to git out." lie turned on his heel and wont a way. Ainswortli knew that the paper he had offered was merely a pretext for an attempt to drive them off the claim. Charley was not at home at the time, but when he came in his father informed him of Harding's visit and what it meant. The two sat down to gether for a conference. If they had known exactly how their enemies were intending to proceed they would have been able to make preparations intelli gently. but being without this informa tion they did nothing. Tom A insworth had spent most Of his life where shooting was in vogue without being himself armed, because he was opposed to both arming and shooting, the former leading to the'lat ter. As for Charley, he said he. knew, nothing about handling a revolver:aud liny one who did would have such an advantage of him that It would be bet ter for him not to enter any shooting match. Mrs. Ainswortli dreade^.bjpod shed aud was in favor, if their neigh bors demanded the property, of giving it up and recovering it by law. This, plan did not suit the father or the son. who proposed to hold on to what belonged to them. The morning brought an end to any suspense they felt. A fow minutes aft er 9 o'clock their neighbors showed signs of an offensive movement. They came out of their cabin and stood talk ing together, casting occasional glances, at the Ainswortli home. They were about 200 yards distant, the Interven ing ground being covered at intervals by protruding rocks, earth throxvp .up from digging and an occasional tree. Charley Ainswortli insisted on his mother keeping in the cabin,, belling, the log walls of which she would be safe from bullets if any were IIred. Charley also persuaded Ills father to remain inside till he was called out, the young man thinking it better that he alone should receive their enemies and determine whether"' thertf was to be lighting. These matters being ar ranged. Charley went outside and. plcly. Ing up a few round stones off the ground, each about the size of a goose's egg. put them in Ills pocket. .., Charley did not wait long before learning that, there was. to be fighting.' The toughs, thinking to frighten "their neighbors, started for the Ainsvgorth cabin, each flourishing a revolver. Harding leading the way ten' 'paces ahead of the other two. Charley took' one of the stones from his pocket and. taking aim. threw it at Harding and hit him in the stomach, knocking the Wind out of him and doubling. Iiitn up.. The other two men didn't seem to know just what to do. Presently thdy both advanced to Harding, picked- him up and carried him back to the cabin. Charley could see him between his gasps for breath, evidently urging them to go for their enemy and shoot him down. Murphy, cocking his re volver. started on that errand, moving forward to get within range, keeping a tree in Hue between him aud his enemy. The ex-pitcher threw an "out shoot." The stone went circling around the tree and took Murphy on the tem ple. Murphy dropped and lay perfectly still. It was now Cunn's turn to take up I lie fight, and. profiting by the expe rience of Iiis pals, lie ran forward to a breastwork of earth that had been thrown out of a mine and with his eyes above it was taking aim with Iiis revolver at his opponent when his eyesight was serioit-ly interfered with from I lie dirt knocked up by a stone that grazed the top of the barrier. He ducked, while Charley kept sending stones, one of which, a drop, took him in the top of the head and, though it did not crack Iiis skull, knocked the life temporarily out of liini. This finished the light. Harding could by this time stand on his feet, but was shaky. Murphy was still in sensible. He died a few days later Ounn had had a bruise on the skull that had taken all the ambition out of him Charley called his father an.d sent him oil' to the nearest mining camp for assistance. Tom returned with some friends a couple of hours later, but meanwhile no further dem onstration had been made by the en emy. Nor were the Ainsworths ever again interfered with. They are now rich mine owners. Tom says that Charley's education in mining engineering was mighty valuable, "but it warn nothin' alongside of the way be larned to pitch atones around corners." A WIDOW'S RUSE Bv MARGARET C. DEVEREAUX In antebellum days liiere lived 111 Georgia on a large plantation, which lie owjieil. one David l.mpont. His wiie bore liiin one child, a son. and when the baby was but a year old the I'athcV died, leaving Iiis property to his wHV in trust for his son. But. Du pint's affairs had always been in the ha wis. of one .lohn Coulter, in whose business ability and integrity the planter had every confidence. He therefore left the management »I the estate to Coulter as executor. Mrs. Inipont had always distrusted Conifer, but so great was his influence over her husband that she dared not speak her mind. One day she set out from the plan tation to visit a friend, ller trunks were hiken to the station by the ne groes. but the widow carried in her hand what in those days was called a ba'ndiiox made of pasteboard, intended for the carrying of women's bonnets or men's hats. Tills box she would trust to no other hands than her own. She told all of I he household that her. baby was to remain in the hands of Chloe, his mammy, and no one else was to have anything to do with him. Mrs. Dupont had been away from the plantation but a few days when Chole's husband. Sampson, appeared t» inform her that little Archie, her son. WHS very ill. She hurried home and. going to the sickroom, shut her self up there, giving orders that no one except the doctor, who had been the family physician for years, was to .be admitted. The doctor came and Wpnt. but when asked how the baby was getting' on always hurried away without giving any satisfaction. One ,d#iy when lie came out of the slck roo'ifi lie said: "It's all over." •TwA day» later Simpson carried a iitWe eoffln. from the house, followed I by the widow, the boy's mammy and all'thd negroes on the plantation. There we're wall».from the dusky mourners, but, ppne .walled so loud as the dead bo^'s mammy. The coffin was carried to the' fa hilly cemetery, where It was placed-in-a grave that had been pre Tpired for it. j.lph^i. Coulter during Archie's sick- IIess.' (eath 1 and burial was away on "biisiries's- When he returned lie found his plans seriously Interfered with. ,Tliei was a provision In David Du 'ponty will that if his son died before his widow the estate should be hers Instead qf in trust for the boy. The widow. at once claimed the property aHd told Coulter that he must turn it tiver to her. The executor was In a hole. He had partly accomplished his plans to get possession of the property and had It not been for the child's den(h would (Joubtless soon have got It Into a posi tioit where he would appear to be the rightful owner. As It was. he could only undo what he had done and turn the,fstate over to the widow. I-Ie was a long while doing It. and she was' obliged on several occasions to threat our- lifirt with a charge of misappropria tion to,, force him to disgorge. When he had dope.so she dismissed him. hop lifg that' lib would leave the neighbor hood. But ln: the service of the Dupont famjl.V be lijid accumulated some mon ey, .with which he bought small plan tation In an adjoining county, where he settled. Some eight or nine years after Archie Dupont's death the widow brought to tile plantation a boy whose age was glvtin as twelve years and adopted him. :f$o:'ge Etherldge was the boy's name, and he soon became a favorite with all "the household. Chloe and Mrs. Dupont btith .seemed to have transferred to him itheir love for little Archie. George grew up a fine fellow and, thanks to his mot lief- by adoption, was well edu cated. Wliep Ktheridge was about to be come of age Mrs. Dupont granted him a ct/lebration of the event. The plant ers from ryund about were Invited to the feto, and, strange to say. John Coulter, who had continued to prosper and had"become a prominent citizen, received an invitation. Surprise was manifested at the extent of the prep arations. anil some persons who re membered the boy's age as given out when lie came to the plantation de clared that he had come of age a year or two before. However, fhere was a fine gathering in honor of the event. On the birthday when the clock struck 12 tin? guests were gathered on a lawn near the house. Mrs. Dupont was there with George KUieridge. old Chloe and all tiie household negroes. "My friends," said the widow, "and Mr. Coulter, this is my son, Archi bald Dupont. When he was a year old I gave out that he was dead. This I did in order to get possession of my property, which was passing into the hands of the executor of the estate. 1 took my hab.v away in bandbox. Chloe. as I had arranged with her. sent me word of ills illness, and I re turned to bury a wax doll. When lie grew old enough not to be known for himself I brought him hero. These precautions are no longer necessary, for by bis father's will his property is to be paid him today. All were surprised except young Du pont. who had known the facts for SOT-,, era I years, and Chloe. who had always known thorn. While Mrs. Dupont was speaking her,! eyes were fixed on John Coulter. Not being .a sensitive man, his mind was' occupied with the manner in which!': tie had been beaten by a wompia. A ,'ä64,'ü!
