MONDAY. JULY 17. 191 fi. PLATTSMOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY JOUHNAH PAGE 5. Copyright, 1913, by CHAPTER VII. O'Ncil Wests Newspaper Woman. "NEIL found his "boys' awaiting: him when he returned to his ruom. There was Mellen, lean, praunt and serious minded, with the du-;t of Chihuahua still upon his shoes: there were McKay, the superin tendent, who had arrived from Califor nia that morning; Sheldon, the com misary man: Elkins. Doc Gray and Happy Tom Slater. TarUer, the chief engineer, aloue was absent. 1 sent Appleton in from Cortez,' he told them. "to come down the rtrer and make the : reliminary survey into Oiuar. lie cables me that lie has filed his locations and everything is O. K. On my way east I stopped here long oiiorpih to buy the Omar cannery, docks, buildings and town site. It's all mine, and it will save us ninety days' work in getting started." "I understand those glaciers come down to the edge of the river," the su perintendent ventured. "The- do," O'Neil acknowledged, "and they're the liveliest ones I ever saw. Tom can answer for that. One of them is fully 400 feet hkjb at the face and four miles across. They're constantly breaking too." "Lumps bigger than this hotel." sup plemented Slater. "It's quite a sight ciual to unything in the state of Maine." Mellon, the bridge buiider. spoke for the lirst time, and the others listened. "As I understand it we will cross the river between the glacier and im mediately below the upper one." "Exactly:" lie shook his head. "We can't build piers to -withstand those heavy bergs which you tell me are always breaking off." "I'll explain how we can," said O'Xeil. "You've hit the bullseye the "We can't build piers to withstand those heavy bergs.' tender spot in the whole enterprise. While the river is narrow and rapid in front of Jackson the lower glacier ''opposite Garfield there is a kind of lake, formed, I suppose, when the glacier receded from its original posi-j tioa. Now then, here lies the joker, the secret of the whole proposition. This lake is deep, but there is a shal low bar across its outlet which serves to hold back all but the small bergs. This gives us a chance to cross In safety. At first I was puzzled to dis cover why only the ice from the lower glacier came down river; then, when I realized the truth, I knew I had the key to Alaska in my hands. We'll cross just below this bar. Understand? Of course it all depends upon Parker's verdict, but I'm so sure his will agree with mine that I've made my prepara tions, bought Omar and gathered you fellows together. We're going to spring the biggest coup in railroad history." They were deep in their discussion' when the telephone broke in noisily. Sheldon, being nearest to the instrn leent. answered it. "There's a news paper reporter downstairs to interview you." he announced, after an instant. I "I don't grant interviews."" O'Xeil said sharply. He could not guess by, what evil chance the news of his plans had leaked our. ! "Nothing doing!" Sheldon spoke Into the transmitter. He turned again to his employer. "Operator says ths party doesn't mind waitinc." i O'Neil frowned impatiently. ' . "Throw him ouiT' Sheldon directed 0 jTLw if! I : no mn Harpr A. Brothers. brusquely, then suddenly dropped the receiver as if had burnt his fingers. "Say! It's a -woman. Murray: She's on the wire. She thanks you sweetly and says she'll wait" "A woman! A newspaper woman r O'Neil rose and seized the instrument roughly. His voice was freezing as he said: "Hello! I refuse to be interview ed. Yes! There's no use" His tone suddenly altered. "Miss Appleton! 1 beg your pardon. I'll be right down." Turning tq his subordinates, he an nounced with n wry smile: "This seems to terminate our interview. She's Dan Arpleton's sister, and therefore" He shrugged resignedly. "Now run along. I'll see you in the morning." His "boys" made their- way down to the street, talking guardedly as they went. O'Neil entered the ladies parlor with a feeling of extreme annoyance, ex pecting to meet an inquisitive, bold young woman bent upon exploiting his plans and his personality in the usual inane journalistic fashion. He was surprised and offended that Dan Apple ton, in whom he had reposed the ut most faith, should have betrayed his secret. Publicity was a thing he de tested at all times, and at present he particularly dreaded its effect. But he was agreeably surprised in the girl who came toward him briskly with hand outstretched. Miss Appleton was her brother's dou ble. She had his frank blue eyes, his straw gold hair, his humorous smile and wide awake look. She was not by any means beautiful her features were too irregular, her uoss too tip tilted, her mouth too generous for that but she seemed crisp, clean cut and wholesome. What first struck O'Neil was her effect of boyishness. From the crown of her plain straw "sailor" to the soles of her sensible -walking boots there was no suggestion of femi nine frippery. She wore a plain shirt waist and a tailored skirt, and het hair was arranged simply. The wave in its pale gold was the only conces sion to mere Jrcttiness. Yet she gave no impression of deliberate masculini ty. She struck one as merely not in terested in clothes, instinctively ex pressing in Ler dress her own boy is L directness and her businesslike absorp tion in her work. "You're furious, of course. Anybody would be," she began, then laughed so frankly that his eyes softened and the wrinkles at their corners deepenwd. "I fear I was rude before I learned you were Dan's sister," he apologized. "But you see I'm a bit afraid of news paper people." "I knew you'd struggle, although Dan described you as a perfectly angelic person." "Indeed!" "But I'm a real reporter, so I won't detain you long. I don't care where you were born or where you went to school or what patent breakfast food you eat. Tell me. are you going to build another railroad?" "1 hope so. I'm always building roads when my bids are low enough to secure the contracts. That's my busi ness." "Are you going to build one in Alas ka?" "Possibly. There seems to be an op portunity there, but Dan has probably told you as much about that as I am at liberty to tell. He's been over the ground." She pursed her lips at him. "You know very well, or you ought to know, that Dan wouldn't tell me a thing while he's working for you. He hasn't said a word, but Is that why you came in frowning like a thunder cloud? Did you think he set me on your trail?" "1 think I do know that he wouldn't do anything really indiscreet." Mur ray regarded her with growing favor. There was something about this boyish girl which awakened the same spon taneous liking he bad felt upon his first meeting with her brother. He surprised her by confessing boldly: "I am building a railroad to the In terior of Alaska. I've been east and raised the money. My men are here. We'll begin operations at once." "That's what Mr. Gordon told me about his scheme, but he hasn't done much so far." "My line will put his out of busi ness; also that of the trust and the various wildcat promoters. "Where does your road start from?" "The town of Omar, on King Phillip sound, near Hope and Cortez. It will run up the Salmon river an past the glaciers which those other nen re fused to tackle." "If I weep it is for joy," aid the girl. "I don't like Curtis G onion. I call him Simon Legree." "Why?" "Well, be impresses me as a real old time villain with the riding boots and the whip and all that. 'Uncle To:u's Cabin' ia my faro rite play; it's so fu ny. This is a big story you're given me, Mr. O'Neil." "I realize that" "It has the biggest news value of anything Alaskan whicli has 'broken for some time. I think you are a very nice person to Interview, after all." "Wait! I don't want you to use a word of what I've told you." Miss Appleton's clearly penciled brows rose inquiringly. "Then why didn't you keep still?" "You asked me. I told you because you are Dan Appleton's sister. Nev ertheless I don't want it made pub lic." "Let's sit down," said the girl, with a laugh. "To tell you the truth. I didn't come here to interview you for my paper. I'm afraid I've tried your patience awfully." A faint flush ting ed her clear complexion. "I just came, really, to get some news of Dan." "He's perfectly well and happy, and you'll see him in a few days." Miss Appleton nodded. "So he wrote, but I couldn't wait Now. won't you tell me all about him not anything about his looks and his health, but lit tle unimportant things that will mean something? You see. I'm his mother and his sister and his sweetheart." O'Neil did as he was directed and before long found himself reciting the details of that trying trip up the Salm on river. He told her how he had sent the young engineer out to run the preliminary survey for the new rail road and added: "He is in a fair way to realize his ambition of having you with him all the time. I'm sure that will please you." "And it is my ambition to make enough money to have him with me," she announced. With an air of some Importance she continued: "I'll tell you a secret I'm writing for the maga zines stories!" She sat back await ing his enthusiasm. When she saw that it was not forthcoming she ex claimed. "My, how you do rave over the idea!" "1 congratulate you. of course, but" "Now, don't tell me that you tried it once. Of course you did. I know it's a harmless disease, like the measles, and that everybody has it when they're young. Above all. don't volunteer the information that your own life is full of romance and would make a splen did novel. They all say that" Murray O'Neil felt the glow of per sonal interest that results from the dis covery in another of a congenial sense of humor. "I didn't suppose you had to write," he said. "Dan told me you had in vested your fortune and were on Easy street." "That was poetic license. I Action ized slightly in my report to him be cause I knew he was doing so well." "Then your investment didn't turn out fortunately? Miss Appleton hesitated. "You seem to be a Itindly, trusting person. I'm tempted to destroy your faith in hu man nature." Tlease don't" "Yes, I shall. My experience may help you to avoid the pitfalls of high finance. Well, then, it was a very sad little fortune, to begin with, like a boy in grammar school just big enough to be of no assistance. But even u boy's size fortune looked big to me. I want ed to invest it in something sure no national bank stock, subject to the dan ger of an absconding cashier, mind you; no government bonds with the possibil ity of war to depreciate them, but something stable and agricultural, with the inexhaustible resources of nature back of it This isn't my own lan guage. I cribbed it from the apple man." "Apple man?" "Yes. He had brown eyes and a silky mustache and a big irrigation plan over east of the mountains. You gave him your money and he gave you a perfectly good receipt Then he plant ed little apple trees. He nursed them tenderly for five years, after which he turned them over to you with his bless ing and you lived happily for evermore. At least that was the idea. You could not fail to grow rich, for the water al ways bubLled through his little ditch, and it never froze nor rained to spoil things. I used to love apples. And then there was my name, which seem ed a good omen. But lately I've con sidered changing 'Appleton' to 'Berry or 'Plummer" or some other kind of fruit" "I infer that the scheme failed." O'Neil's eyes were half closed with amusement "Yes. It was a good scheme, too, ex cept for the fact that the irrigation ditch ran uphill and that there wasn't any water where it started from and that "apples never had been vjade to grow In that locality because "vE some thing In the soil and that brown eyed Eetty's title to the land wouldn't hold water any more than the ditch. Other wise I'm sure he'd have made a suc cess and I'd have spent my declining years in a rocking chair under the fall ing apple blossoms, eating pippins and Jonathans and Northern Spies. I can't bear to touch them now. Life at my boarding house is one long battle against apple pies, apple puddings, ap ple tapioca. Ugh! I hate the very word. ' "I can understand your aversion. laughed O'NelL "I wonder if you would let me order dinner for both of us, provided I taboo fruit Terhaps I'll think of something more to tell you about Dan. I'm sure he wouldn't ob ject" "Oh, my card Is all the chaperon I need! It takes me everywhere and renders me superior to the smaller con ventionalities." She handed him one, and he read, "Eliza V. Appleton The Review." "May I ask what the V stands for?" He held up the card between his thumb and finger. Miss Appleton blushed for all the wor'fl like a boy, then answered stiffly: "It stands for Violet But that Isn't my fault and I'm doing my best to live It down." On her return to the Review office the managing editor complimented Miss Appleton on her work and surprised her by, assigning her to Alaska to ex pose the men who were "trying to snatch control of the empire."

Lbeax.1 Notary Public lly com mission expires Oct. &, 1815 YOUNG FOLKS' CORNER An Experiment With Sugar. The following is a curious experi ment, necessaries for which are very simple. Hold a few lumps of sugar, one at a time, la a pair of nippers and plunge -them rapidly Into collodion of 10 degrees (ordinary photographer's collodion); then place them in dry air for four and twenty hours to allow the ether completely to evaporate. They are still to all appearance common lumps of sugar, and you may safely place them on top of the sugar bowl without any risk of the trick being apparent to the eye. Now hand a glass of water to one of the spectators and beg him to put a lump of sugar-in it, as you say you are thirsty for glass of sweetened water. The sugar will fall to the bottom at first, just like an ordinary lump, but in a few moments it will remount to the surface and float there, greatly to the amazement of those present. In reality It is no longerhe sugar Itself that we behold, Thfr'sugar, in fact is dissolved in the water. What we now see is the ghost or double of a lump of sugar. The collodion pene trated every cavity of the sugar, and now, having got rid of its soluble com panion while yet retaining the crystal line form and white appearance of the saccharine, the collodion shell floats upward to the top and stays there. But be careful! Though the illusion is an optical one, it will not bear the test of touch. Should any one of the spectators step In before you are aware and snatch at the ghost of your lost lump of sugar they will seize a soft and spongy nothing that will crumble Into flinders at the touch. Magical Ex periments. Strange Chinese Beliefs. Among the many extraordinary cus toms of the Chinese is that of banding years together in groups of twelve, called "cycles, and naming each year of the series after some animal. Thus the first year of a new cycle is the year of the rat, the second the year of the ox, the third the year of the tiger. Every Chinese born in the year of the rat belongs to the Order of the Hat, and so on, says London Tit-Bits. The animal class of every Chinese man and woman is thus recorded aud is held to be of great importance in foretelling the future. Another curious fact about the Chinese reckoning of time is that in the Celestial nation a child is held to be a year old as soon as it is born. With the foolish superstition so dear to the oriental mind, a baby boy is frequently given a girl's name in order to deceive the evil spirits, who appar ently have an objectionable habit of making it as hard as possible to rear a male child successfully. The Angry Oyster. Many, many years ago a man walked by the shores of a large bay. At his feet lay a very ugly old oyster all covered with tiny shellfishes and sea weeds. As the traveler wandered about this water citizen, which looked to him like a rock, he kicked it to" find out what it was and why it should be to covered. At such treatment the sur prised oyster opened its wide mouth in astonishment and then tightly closed its shell. While the creature's mouth was open the man noticed the beauti ful creamy layers within the shell, 60 he determined to find out more about his new acquaintance. lie pried open the mouth of the oyster. This enraged the shellfish so that it snapped the heavy doors together, bruising the traveler's hand. As soon as possible the man released his pinched fingers and put them in his mouth to ease the pain. Almost instantly the hurting was forgotten, for as the man sucked his fingers he was delighted with the taste of the oyster. His was the first oyster feast. Ever since people have been eating oysters and attending to growing them. The Privileges of Boys. Henry Clay said that when he was a boy his mother was very poor, but never too poor to buy the proper books for her children. He attributed the fact of his success in life to a good mother and good books. But think what greater opportunities there are for boys and girls in these days than in the time of Henry Clay, with all the public libraries to which boys and girls have access. Even in the country there is always some way to get books. If you cannot meet great men in the flesh, you can sit down with them in their books. It is a great privilege to be able to know the thoughts of "kings and queens" from books that tell about them. Henry Irving's Dog. Henry Irving once had a dog who would sit at one side of the stage every night and remain until, the perform ance was over. When Mr. Irving wns leaving for the United States the dog went as far as Southampton. Greatly distressed, be saw his master leave by the boat, and then he disappeared. Three days afterward he was seen on the stage of a theater in London. lie was mud from head to foot, and his feet were all cut aud bleeding. He had made his way by foot from one place to the other, and so none knew how he found his way. Parts of the Cody.
