"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

misary man: Elkins. Doc Gray and
Happy Tom Slater. TarUer, the chief
engineer, aloue was absent.

On my way east I stopped here long

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."

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

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
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
"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
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."
"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
"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
"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
"I infer that the scheme failed."
O'Neil's eyes were half closed with
"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

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

about Dan. I'm sure he wouldn't ob

need! It takes me everywhere and

and he read, "Eliza V. Appleton The

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."

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
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.
