John Stuart Webster, mlnln engineer, man's man, 33 yearn young-, boards a tratn In Death VaJloy, California, on hla way back to clvlllxatlon after clean f3R up $100,000. He Is dreaming of cool baths, silk pajamas and ham and egis. Mut he looks like a hobo to the porter and the conductor. His way of chang. loir their views gives a hint of the mettle of the man. Then he meets a dis tressed lady, who makes his heart flop over for the first time In all his days. He eliminates the offending man after the style of the man's man the world over. Being what he It and also girl-shy, he docs not take advantage of his opportunity. But he Just had to find out who the no-longer-dlstressed lady Is, being determined to hatch up a scheme to meet her again and marry her. fihe Is Dolores Iluey. Clad In purple and fine linen, John goes to the Knglneers' club In Denver, the nearest approach to a home he has known In twenty years. There he Is offered a 2S,000-a-ycnr Job with the certainty of a fortune by a capitalist friend, Edward I. Jerome. Wlillo he Is hesitating, being loath to go to work again so soon, he receives a delayed letter from his own particular pal, Billy Geary, asking him to flnanco a gold-mining prop osition In Contral America and go M-CO with him on the profits. Thereupon ho turns down the big Job and decides to answer the call of friendship and advonture to Sobrante. '6 CHAPTER II Continued. "Well." Webster retorted humorous- ily, "It Isn't exactly what you might jtcrm a ruling passion, I llko to make It, but there's more fun spending It. Tto mado $100,000, and now I want Ho go blow It and I'm going to. Do iot try to nrgue with me. I'm n lunn- Es and I will have my way.

Jcromo wore half-hcnrtcdly nnd promulgated the trlto proverb that llfo Is Just ono Wank thing nfter tho other an ln thoato mnBS of liver and disappoint went I "Do you find it so?" Webster queried sympathetically. Suspecting that ho was being twitted, Jerome looked up sharply, prcpaiiid to wither Wohstcr with that glsnco. But no, tho man was abso lutely serious; whoreupon Jerome realized tho futility of furthor argu ment and gave John Stuart Webster op for a total loss. Still, ho could not "help smiling as he reflected how Web ster had planned n year of quiet en joyment nnd Fato had granted him no brief ovenlng. Ho marveled that iWebstcr could bo bo light-hearted hnd Seontented under tho circumstances. Webster rend his thoughts. "Good lye, old man," ho snld, nnd extended ils hand. "Don't worry about mc. Hah Is always kind to fools, my Eend; sorrow Is never their portion, answering Billy's cnll I have a feci Stag that I am answering tho call of la great adventure," Ho dtd not know how truly ho spoke, f course, but If ho had, thnt knowl dgo would not have changed his an swer. f CHAPTER III. Tho morning following his decision to play tho rolo of angel to Billy Gear's mining concession In Sobranto, John Stuart Webster, llko Mr. Pcpys, -was up betimes. Nino o'clock found him In the ofllco f his friend Joo Dnlngcrllcld, of tho Bingham engineering works, where, rwlthln tho hour, ho had In his charac--tcrlstlcaly decisive fashion purchased (the machinery for n ten-stamp mill. It ."was a nice order, and DalngerQold was delighted. "This Is going to cost you nbout halt jrour fortune, Jack," hu Informed Web ster when tho order was finally nado up. Webster grinned "You don't sup poso I'm chump enough to pay for It ow, ao you, Joo?" ho queried. "I'm going first to scout tho coun try nnd In tho meantime keep nil this tuff In your warehouso until I au thorize you by cable to shin, when you con draw on mo at sight for the entire invotco with bill of lading at tached. If, upon Investigation, I rind that thlo mlno Isn't nil my partner thinks It Is, I'll cable n cancellation, and you can tear thnt nice fat order up nnd forget it. From Dalngerfleld's ofllco Webster went forth to purchase a steamer trunk, his rnllwuy ticket nnd sleep ing car reservation after which ho returned to his hotel and set about packing for tho Journey. Old Neddy Jcromo, os aour and cross as u setting hen, accompanied aim In tho tnxlcnb to tho station, loth to let hlin escapo and pleading to the last. In a forlorn hopa Unit Jack Web ster's better nature would triumph over Ids friendship nnd boyish yearning far adventure.

As sho passed, John Stuart Web ster looked fairly Into her face, started as If bee-stung, and hastily lifted his hat. The girl briefly returned his scrutiny with sudden Interest, decided ahe did not know him, and reproved him with n glance that oven passe old Neddy Jerome did not fall to assimi late. "Wow, wowl" ho murmured. "The next tlmo you try that, Johnny Web ster, be sure you're right " "Good land o' Goshen, Neddy," Web ster replied. "Fry mo In bread crumbs, if that isn't the same girl!

"Who Is she, you nnclcnt horse thief l Why, if I havo my way and I'm certainly "going to try to havo It sho's tho future Mrs. W." "Alasl Poor Yorlck, I knowed him well," Jcromo answered. "Take n tip from Iho old man, John. I've been through tho mill and I know. Never ninrry n girl that can frcczo you with a glance. It Isn't safe. By tho way, what's the fair chnrmcr's name?" "I'vo got It down In my memoran dum book, but I can't recall It this min ute Spanish name." "John, my dear boy, bo careful," Neddy Jcromo counseled. "Stick to your own kind of people Is Uits a cr a nlco girl, John?" "now do I know I mean, how daro you ask? Of course, sho's nice. Cau't you sco sno is?

Who Introduced you?" "I haven't mot her, and I've never been Introduced," Webster complained, nnd poured forth tho tulo of his ad venture tn tho train from Death val ley. Neddy was very sympathetic. "Well, no wonder sho didn't recog nize you when you saluted her o night," ho agreed. "Thought you wei' another brute of a man trying to make a mash. By thunder, Jack, I'm afraid you mado a mistake when you nhed your whiskers nnd burled your old clothes." "I don't enre what sho thinks. I fouud her. I lost her, and I've found her again; and I'm not going to tako any further chances."

"Horry," he said, "where did you stow that young lady's hand baggage-?" "Lower Sir, Car Nino, sail." "I havo a wenkuess for colored boys who aro quick at figures." Webster de clared, and dismissed tho porter with tho gratuity. Ho turned to Jerome. "Neddy, I feel that, I am answering tho call to a great adventure," ho de tltrod solemnly. MI know It, Jack.

If your fit of in canity passes within 00 days, cable mc ; and If you're broke, stick the Co lorado Con. for the cable tolls." "Good old wagon I" Webster replied affectionately. Then he shook hands and climbed aboard the train. The instant he disappeared In tho vesti bule, however. Neddy Jerome wnddlcd rapidly down the track to Car 0, climbed aboard, and made his way to Lower 0. The young lady In tho green tailor-made suit was there, looking Idly out of tho window. "Young lady," Jcromo began, "may I presume to address you for n mo ment on a matter of great Importance to you? Don't be afraid of me, my dear. I'm old enough to be your fa ther, and besides, I'm one of the nicest old men you ever met." She could not forbcur n smile. "Very well, sir," she replle.1. Neddy Jerome produced u pencil and card. "Please wrlti your naqjc on this card," ho pleaded, "and I'll rclegruph what I want to lay to you. there'll bo a man coining through this rar In a minute, and I don't want hlra u see mo hero. Please trust mc, )cng lady." Tho young lady did not trust him, however, although she wrote on tie card. Jeromo thanked her and fle4 os fast as his fat old legs could car ry him. Under the station arc he read the card. "Henrietta Wllklns," ho murmured. "By tho gods, one would never sus pect n name like thnt belonged to a face like that. By jlv-go, it would bo strange If that madman persuaded her to ranrry him. I hope he does. If I'm any Judge of character, Jack Web ster won't be cruel enough to chain thrfl vision to Sobranto; and besides, she's liable to make hlin decide who's most popular with him Henrietta or Billy Geary. If she does, I'll play Geary to lose. Weill Needs must when tho devil drives." And ho en tered tho station telegraph office and commenced to write. An hour later Miss Dolores Iluey, alius Henrietta Wllklns, was handed this remarkably verboso and truly candid telegrnm: "Miss Henrietta Wllklns, Lower 0, Car 0, on board train 24. "Do you recall tho bewhlskcred, ragged Individual you met on tho S. P.kL. A. & S. L. train In Death val- ley ten days ago? He lifted his lint to you tonight, nnd you almost killed him with a look. It did not occur to him that you wouftj not recognize him disguised as n gentleman, and he lift ed his hat on Impulse. Do not hold it against him, Tho sight of you again set his reason tottering on Its throne, nnd ho told mo his sad ctory.

Jcrme, President Colo rado Consolidated Mines, Ltd., Cure Engineers' Club." Tho girl rend and reread this tele gram several times, nnd presently n slow little Binllo commenced to creep around tho corners of her adorable mouth. "I believe thnt amazing old gentle man Is absolutely dependable," was tho decision nt which sho ultimately arrived, and calllm; for a telegraph b'.Mik, Mi" vtlre-i tho old schemer : 'iritn ftimfanftrt nnt fwimir.li inn ia, Mnkc It 51,000 and I will guarantee to deliver Uip man within IX) days.

That telesr-m unlved at the Eiifl neors' club nbout midnight, and vur sunnt to instructions, tho night br keeper rend It nnd 'phoned the con tents to Neddy Jerome, iO o prompt ly telephoned his reply to tho olo graph olficc, and then sat on the dee of his bed, scratching his l.vs nnd meditating. "That's n remarkable young wom an," ho deckled, "and business to her finger tips. Well, l'vo dono my pint, and It's now up to Jack Webster to protect himself In the clinches nnd breakaways." About daylight a black hand passed Neddy Jerome's reply through the berth curtains to Dolores Iluey. She read When you deliver the goods, rommiiiilcntc with me nnrt gvt jour money. "JEROME." Sho snuggled back among the pil lows nnd considered the various as pects of this amazing contract which she had undertuken with n perfect stranger. Hour after hour she lay there, thinking over this preposterous sltuntlon, and tho more she weighed It, tho more Interesting and nttrnctlve Uio proposition nppenre'l. But one consideration troubled her., How would tho unknown knight ninnnge an Introduction? Or, If he failed to man age it, how was sho to overcome that obstacle? "Oh, dear," sho murmured, "I do hope he's brave." Sho need not havo worried. Hours before, the object of her thought had settled all that to his own complete satisfaction, and as a consequence was sleeping peacefully and gaining strength for whatever1 of fortune, good or III, tho morrow might bring forth. CHAPTER IV. Day was dawning In Buennvcntura, republic of Sobrante, ns Invariably It dawns In tho tropics without extend ed prollmlnary symptoms. The soft, silvery light of a full moon that had stayed out scandalously lato had merged Imperceptibly Into gray; tho gray was swiftly yielding place to a faint crimson that was spreading and deepening upward athwart the east. In the pntlo of Mother Jenks' estab lishment In tho Cnlle de Concordia, No. 10, tho first shafts of morning light were filtering obliquely through the orange trees and creeping In un der tho" deep, Gothic-arched veranda flanking tho western side of the pa tio. Presently, through the silent reaches of the Calle de Concordia, Uio sound of n prodigious knocking nnd thumping echoed, ns of some fretful Individual seeking admission nt the street door o El Buen Am I go, by which euphonious designation Mother Jcnks caravansary was known to the pttbllc of Buennvcntura. In the sec ond story, front, a window slid back and a woman's voice, husky with that huskl.iess thnt speaks so accusingly of cigarettes and alcohol, demanded: "Quleu es? Who Is It? Que qulere usted? Wot do yer want?" "Ye might dlsplnse wit' thnt pnrn queet conversation whin rtddhressln' the likes av me," a voice replied. "'Tls me Cnfferty. I havo n cablegram Leber give me tot deliver " "Gawd's truth! Would yer wake tho 'ole 'ouse with yer 'ammerlng?" "All right. I'll not say another worrd 1" Without tho pjrtnl stood Don Juan Cnfetero, of whom n word or two be fore proceeding. To begin, Don Juan Cafetero was not his real name, but rather a free Spanish translation of tho Gaelic John Cnfferty. Mr. Cnfferty was an exile of Erin with a horrible thirst. He had first arrived In Sobrante some flvo years before, ns section boss In the employ of the little foreign-owned nnrrow-guuge railway which ran from Buennvcntura on the Caribbean const to San Miguel de Padua, mctvuntry whom the nltrnte beds were located. Prior to his advent the railroad peo ple had tried many breeds of section boss without visible results, until a Chicago man, who had como to So brante to Install an lnter-communlcat-lng telephone system In the govern ment buildings, suggested to the su perintendent of the road, who was a German, Uiat tho men mado for bosses come from Erin's Isle; wherefore Mr. Cnfferty had been Imported at a price of 5ii a day gold. Result a marked Improvement In the road bed and con sequently the train schedules, and tho ultimate loss of the Cafferty soul. Something In the cllmnto of Sobran to must have appealed to a touch of lalsscz falro In Don Juan's amiable nature, for In the courso of time he had taken unto him 'elf, without bell 0i' book, after the fashion of the pro letariat of Sobninto, the daughter of ono Estebun Manuel Enrlquo Joso Ma ria Pasquol y Mlramontes, an estima ble peon who was singularly glnd to hnvo his daughter off his hands and no questions asked. Fol'owlng the fash ion of tho country, however, Esteban had forthwlUi moved tho remainder of his numerous progeny under the man tle of Don Junn Cnfetero's philan thropy, and resigned n position wh.ch for mnny years ho had not enjoyed to-wlt: hnltlng nnd packing green hides at n local abattoir. This fool hardy economic move had so Incensed Don Junn thnt In n fit of plquo ho spurned his father-In-Inw (wo must call Esteban something and so why split hairs?) undor tho tails of his camlsa, with such vigor as to sever forever the friendly relations hither to existing between the families. Mrs. CilTcrty (again wo transgress, but what of It?) subsequently passed away. In child birth, and no sooner had she been decently burled than Don Juan tool: n week off to drown his sorrows. In this condition no had encoun tered Esteban Manuel Enr'que Jose Murln Pnsqnal y Mlrnmontcs nnd called him out of his name. In the altercation that ensued E3tcbttn, fully convinced that ho had received the nub end of the transaction from start to finish, cut Don .Tuun severely; Don Juan had thereupon claln Esteban with a .-J-t-cnltbcr revolver and upoc emerging ftom tho railroad hospital month Inter had been tried by a So biantcun magistrate and fined tho sum or $20,000, legal tender of Uio republic of Sobranto. Of course, ho had paid It oft within six months from his wages as section boss, but tho mem ory of tho Injustice always rankled him, and gradually ho moved down the scale of society from section boss tn day laborer, day laborer to tropical trsjBp, and tropical tramp to beach- 'omber. In nnt'i mi to, , now uvlRted for M'venil timiiiliM. To return in Mother .l-nik. Before Don .hum could evin uiit a innlutlnnl greeting. Mother .n-nks hint finger lo lip nnd silenced him. "On back to Leber's nnd return In tin hour," she whispered. "I 'avu my reasons for wnntln' thnt bloomlu' cablegram de livered Inter." Don Junn hntln't the lenM Idea what Mother Jenks' reasons might be, lint he presumed she was up to some' chi canery, nnd so he winked his blond shot eyo very knowingly nnd nodded his ncqulcscence In tho progrnm. When ho had gone. Mother Jenks went behind the bur and fortified her self with her morning's morning which rite having been performed, her sleep-benumbed brain livened up lm mediately. "Gord's truth I" the lady murmured. "An' mo nbout to turn him adrift for tho lawst fortnight! Well for 'Ira 'a allcrs hadmlrcd tho picture o' my sainted 'Encry, ns was tho splttln' Im age of his own fawther. 'Evlngal Ell's bells! But that was a bit of a tight squeak!

Cafetero, Mother Jcnks proceeded up stairs to her chamber, clothed her self, nnd adjourned to the kitchen. After giving orders for nn extra spe cial breakfast for two, Mother Jenks returned to her cantlnn, and formally opened tho same for the business of Uiat day and night. To her came presently, via the tiled hallway, the object of her solicitude, a young man on the sunny side of thirty. ,He was thin for one of his height and brendth of chest; In color his countenance resembled that of a sick Chinaman. His hair was thick and wavy, but lusterless; his dan; bluo eyes carried a hint of Jaundice; and n generous mouth, beneath an equally generous upper Up, gave am ple ground for the suspicion thnt while Mr. William Geary's speech denoted him an American citizen, nt least on of his maternal ancestors had been wooed and won by un Irishman. An old Panama hat, sad relic of u pros perous past, a pair of soiled buckakli; pumps, a suit of unbleached linen equally befouled, and last but not least, the remnants of a smile thai much hard luck could never quite olx literate, completed his attire and to one a stranger In the tropics would appear to constitute a completo Inven tory of Mr. Geary's possessions. "Dulce coruzon mlo, I extend t greotlng," ho called nt tho entrance "I trust you rested well last night, Mother Jenks, and that no evil dreum' were born of your midnight repast ot frtjolcs refrltos, marmalade, and art-an'-nrfl" "Chop yer spoofin', Willie," Mothot Jenks simpered. "My heyol Ho I'm yer sweet'enrt, eh? Yer wheedlln' blighter, makln' lovo to a girl us Is old enough tobo yer mother 1" "A woman," Mr. Geary retortod sagely and not a whit abashed, "Is a: the apex of her fcmlnlno charms a thirty-seven." Ho knew his landlady to bo not a dny under fifty, but such Is tho cas with which tho Irish Hcuttor their blarney thnt neither Billy Geary nor Mother Jcnks regarded this pretty ppcech In tho light of an observation Immaterial, Inconsequential nnd not germano to tho matter at Issue. Nc: ertheless, there was n deoper reao,i for his blarney. This morning, watch lng the telltale tlngo of pleasure un derlying tho alcohol-begotten )mo of tho good crenture's face, ho felt al most ashamed of his own hearties rrss almost, but not quite. "Gor, Willie, I ain't respect able. She's comln' to sea me an' I cawo'l let 'er." (TO WE CONT1NUKD.) Jud Tunklns.

Proof of What Can De Done, With Intelligence and Industry, on Good, Low-Priced Land. The 100 International Live Stock show nt Chicago was probably tho best thnt has ever been held, nnd ns Is pointed out by a Canadian newspaper writer, the number and qunllty of the exhibits "Indicated a new milestone on the road of progress." This year It was truly "International." Tho part that Canada took showed a spirit of friendliness on both sides of tho lino thnt was highly pleasing. Six provinces of Canada were rep resented In varying degrees, and when the handsome share ot the prizes that were carried off by our northern neighbors, achieving phenomenal suc cess in view of tremendous competi tion, is considered, there Is renson to hope thnt In tho minds of these people there will grow nn esteem for the Int'ernntlonnl that will be helpful to both countries. Canada won n number of champion ships, not the least of which was the sweepstakes carried off by Mr. J. C. Mitchell, of Dahlnda, Saskatchewan. In this nward may be seen nn object lesson, going to show thnt It Is not always the man born with a sliver spoon in his mouth to whom the greatest degree of success will attach. It will bo interesting to relate thnt Mr. Mitchell, the recipient of these great honors, camo from the manufac turing city of Manchester, England, unncqunlnted with farming, but with the lure of the land upon him. Be cause he had been told of the success thnt followed the tiller of the soil of Western Cnnndn, fifteen years ago he decided to make his home In Canada, and selected ns a homestead tho land upon which he grew the wheat that has brought him a world's champion ship. It Is true he had his ups nnd downs, but he continued nnd Is now enjoying the fruits of his labor and the experience gained In a mnnner of life thnt was enjoynblc. But he Is still a simple farmer and will con tinue growing grains that, with the knowledge he possesses, Industry thnt Is essential, nnd above all, a soil and A climate that are favorable, will 8eJ cure many more world's champion ships. Well, then, too, there was born at Stratford, Ontnrlo, 'n boy named Lu ens, now of man's estate. Although n town boy he always hnd a desire for farming. He moved to Alberta to the neighborhood of Cayley, nnd those who have had no Idea where Cayley Is will know now, for Mr. Lucas has placed it "on the mnp." He had some of his 49.2-lbs.-to-the-bushel oats nt the" Internntlonnl, nnd with 240 com petitors against him ho took the championship and sweepstakes. This was a notable achievement. As has been snld, when he was a boy he took a liking to fanning, but the grentest obstacle In the wny of realization of his dreams was the practical Impos sibility of a man without a large amount of capital purchasing the high-priced furm lands of the settled parts In the neighborhood he lived In. However, nfter leaving school he heard of the law-priced lands of West ern Cnnada. This was his opportu nity, nnd he embraced It. Beginning ut 15 years of nge with 1C0 ucres of virgin prairie, and with no practical farming experience, ho has now, by perseverance nnd Industry, Increased his holdings to nearly 1,000 acres. Such 1m tho brief history of the man who curried off tho championship for the best grown oatu, and It Is nlso nn example that might well bo followed by many who are struggling today ngiilnst the prices received for the producu grown on high-priced land, or to those who, nn wan the case with Mr. LuniH, had little means but an aliuudauce of energy and a Hood of ambition. Nowhere ant there offered ImtiiceinentH Hitch iih are offered In Western Caiiiidn. Tiore were 25 prizes offered tn tho class for hard uprlng wheats nnd 20 of them went to WeMtern Canada.
