air is heavy with the intoxicating per

just what he wants.

music he can hear laughter and the
sound of voices, as though the in

unlike a woman’s scream. He knows

her feelings in that way, Dut what of

hour, yes, the minute, has come. He
remembers his promise to Bob, and
gives the signal whistle that is to
warn the other. Then, hesitating no
longer, he springs up the steps of the
mansion, two at a time. A voice calls
after him, but he ignores the fact. Per

are there, and amazed to see one they
take to be the driver of a vehicle

bursts into the spacious hallway
where lights abound, his manner that
of a tiger in pursuit of his prey.
There is no need of a directory to
show him the way; the loud voices
lead him straight to the room where
an exciting drama is taking place.
As he reaches the doorway this is
what meets his eyes. The room is ap
parently a library, and seems full of
people. There is Dora, looking
Tightened, and with Professor John
ndeavoring to calm her, at the same
ime pouring his story of devotion into
her ear. Senora Morales has sunk
back upon a divan, while her husband
stands before her, his face expressing
shame at being connected with a
scheme to harm his wife's guest.
In the middle of the room stands
the central figure—Pauline Westerly.
Two men hold her, and it is well they
do, for she has a small revolver in her
hand, and would do some of her
enemies harm if- given the chance.
The men who thus lay sacrilegious
hands upon the brave American girl
are Senor I opez and one of his fol
lowers. Although there are a number
of Mexican gentlemen present, not

should there be any need of his
services? He knows the Sheriff of
Secora county too well to doubt this
fact. If Bob has declared his inten
tion to do a certain thing, all the
forces of nature and man cannot de
bar him. Besides there is a magnet
here that must draw him.
Once Dick catches a voice that
causes him to elevate his eyebrows.
So the little professor, who has come
to Mexico to burrow in new realms of
science and make known to the world

This fact causes Dick to believe
more than ever that the whole busi
ness is a deep-laid scheme on the
part of Lopez. Perhaps Morales is in
his power. The grandee diplomat may
cwh a goodly share in the El Dorado,
so that he is financially interested in
the carrying out of the hidalgo's
schemes. Dick moves nearer, so that
lie may examine the house and its ap
proaches. If Morales is in the game,

that they are having refreshments

him to join thqpn in cake and pulque,
but Dick refuses and continues to
smoke while he keeps up his vigil,
knowing that if he once gets among a
lot of native Mexicans they will soon
penetrate his disguise.
So he waits.
The drama will soon make another
turn unless his calculations are all
astray. He feels for his weapons now
and then, not that he is anxious to
use them, but their presence gives

they do not notice the lapse of hours.

heart when he » «s her in the com
pany of one w’.o seems to be a Mexi

dress, for Dick is already sure of the
hold he has upon Mis3 vVesteriy's re

He notices that there has been a
change within—the music ceases, and
even the laughter comes only at inter
vals. Perhaps the ladies are about
ready to go home; if so, the crucial
test Is certainly at hand.
Dick moves still nearer, la order to
distress, which is positive proof that
they are all in the same boat: like
Morales, they have a deep interest in
the El Dorado and besides, must be
in the power of the cunning old hi
All this constitutes a dramatic
scene Dick will never forget to his
dying day. His first glance is at the
girl’s face—how her eyes seem to
fairly bum as they turn upon the old
Mexican don. She feels an utter con
tempt for a man who would stoop to
war upon women, and this feeling is
shown in her glorious orbs.
Dick catches his breath as his eyes
remain riveted upon that inspired
face. With such an incentive he
would dare anything on earth, nor
could he be daunted.
“This time we have you, my lady
manager, and we do not mean to let
you escape until you have placed your
signature to this paper. Jose, place
it on the table—the pen—the ink.
Now,” twisting the little revolver from
her hand, “sit down and sign. Miss
Westerly,” and the senor almost forci
bly causes Pauline to be seated.
Will she sign? Dick is ready to
spring forward, if he sees her about
to give way. She takes the paper in
her hands and reads—every eye is
bent upon her—she slowly picks up
the pen, digs it in the ink, and. as
Dick tales a step forward, draws a
heavy black cross over the entire face
of the document.
Exclamations burst out on all sides,
and more than one Mexican oath is
heard. I.opez looks as black as a
thunder-cloud, though he smiles in a
cruel way. as only a Mexican can.
“Ah! you will give us the trouble
to make out a new document. It is
easily done. Understand, you go no'
forth until you have signed. This
time there is no dashing cowboy to
fly to your rescue; we have looked
after him, senorita. If you refuse to
sign, this night sees his death."
Here is a new factor brought to
bear—her love for Dick. It may in
fluence her more than anything else.

threat with a feeling of rage; he Can

expectant faces darken again.

THE PLOT THAT FAILED.
Governor Found Himself in a Pre
dicament and Schemed to
Squirm Out of It.
A couple of years ago a governor of
one of the southern states went to
Palm Beach, Florida, for a short holi
day. He registered at one of the mag
nificent hotels and was assigned to a
if.xurious suite of rooms. He was com
iortal)ly installed, relates Lippincott's,
when a friend came in to call on him.
“This is a wonderful apartment they
have given you," said the visitor.
“Why, yes,” replied the governor,
“I’ve never enjoyed such luxury in my
life. Never saw such a place! They
just showed me to these rooms, but
I've been wondering if they realized
that I was a poor man. What do you
suppose they’ll charge me?”
“Well, governor,” answered the
other. ”1 happen to know about that.
The last man. a railroad president
from New York, paid $75 a day for
these very rooms.”
“Scissors to grind,” cried the un'or
tunate politician. “I’ve only got ?50.

When the governor arrived at the
station he found the friend waiting
as h° had arranged.
“You got my telegram all right?”
“Got it!” said the governor in a
despairing voice, “I should say so. I
believe I am the unluckiest man ally’.

Miss Clara Barton, the organizer of
the first American Red Cross society,
is now well up in years, and some
time ago it was thought best that a
younger person assume the responsi
bilities of president. Through a long
series of campaigns—beginning with
the forest fires in Michigan and end
poor in funds and members, its affairs
had been somewhat loosely conducted.
By an act of congress passed a year
ago (194), the American National
Red Cross was newly organized. It
is now incorporated under the laws
of the District of Columbia and is
brought directly under government
supervision. Among other members
of the board of incorporators, the
charter provides that five are to be
chosen from the departments of state,
war, navy, tresury and justice. The

It was a Swiss gentleman, Henri
Dunant, who founded the great Red
Cross work. A man of wealth, he
was traveling with his servant in
northern*Italy at the time of the
dreadful battle of Solferino (June 24,
1859), when 3oo,o00 men faced each
other in deadly array, when France
bought her victory at the cost of
17,000 men, the killed and wounded
Austrians numbered 20,000. The
morning after the "glorious victory”

liaiion hud directed the activities of
tne society in a work of much bene.i
ceuce; "large sums of money, contrib
uted by the public, were useiuny ex
pended; human suffering was ai.e.i
ated in many widely separated fields;
and thousands of people were helped
to get on their feet after they had
been stricken down by catastropnes
of nature or the operations of war.”
W niie by no means minimizing the
benencence of the work done, criti
cism began to be heard of a lack of
business methods in the Red Cross
work, chief among the criticisms the
declaration of the society's failure to
make and publish properly audited
statements of receipts and disburse
ments. During the Spanish war a
number of business men in New York,
wishing to cooperate with the Red
Cross work, offered to give the so
ciety all the moneys collected if Miss
Barton would allow them to send a
representative to Cuba to supervise
expenditures and audit accounts.
Their proposition was declined, and
the business men decided to organize
what became known as the New York
Hed Cross Auxiliary, the organization
controlling its own expenditures and
at the end publishing a detailed ac
It was at this time the suggestion
was made, with all the tact possible,
that Miss Barton resign the post she
had so long honored and her place be
taken by ap ractical business man.
Miss Barton appeared to think favor
ably of the suggestion at first, but
later decided not to retire, obtained a
charter from congress and reorgan
ized the society. From now on ihe
public were made aware of serious
increase of friction—details need not
be entered into; suffice it to say the
public rejoiced when discord ceased, a
bill was passed incorporating the

An editorial in the Outlook, calling
attention to the first annual meeting
of the reorganized society, makes this
comment of the need there had been
for reorganization: “The American
Red Cross was organized in 1882. For
more than 20 years it has led an ac
tive existence. How far short it has
come of the objects for which it was
organized was seen, more than ever
before, in 1904, comparing it with oth
er branches of the International Red
Cross. Leaving out of calculation
doctors, nurses, hospitals and mate
rials, in the item of funds alone the
Italian society reported in that year
over $800,000, the German society over
$900,000, the Austrians over $1,700,000,
the French over $1,800,000, and the
Japafiese over $4,000,000. Ours report
ed $1,702! As the Japanese society
was largest in material resources, so
it was also largest in membership—
over 800,000 adherents; our member
ship was 123! Despite its useful work
the American Red Cross was not onlr
be uncared for. M. Dunant was- so
impressed with the dreadful spectacle
he determined to take some step to
waken the nations to the need of or
ganized volunteer aid. He traveled
trom court to ccurt in Europe, and as
a result of his efforts a conference
was held in Geneva in 1863, the fol
lowing year the convention was rati
fied by the high signatory powers;
provision made for reforms in the
treatment of the injured in battle, for
the protection of hospital work, all
hospitals to be indicated by a certain
flag, a red cross on a white ground.
Shortly after the institution of the
Red Cross its beneficence was called
into play. In the war of 1866 nearly
14.000 wounded Austrians were cared
for by the Prussian society of the Red
Cross, and in the Franco-Prussian
war the Red Cross had 25,000 beds in
towns between Dusseldorf and Baden
alone. It was while helping on the
battlefield in the last named war that
Miss Barton, one of the best nurses
of our civil war, realized the need ior
organizing a Red Cross society in
America, and on her return home she
laid the matter before President Gar
field, himself a soldier and cognizant
of conditions in time of war. With
out undue delay the American Red
Cross society was organized. “Even
outside the miseries of war, this or
ganization has for its prime object
the relief of the suffering. Muskets
and cantyfri may be suent for awhiie,
but the^warring elements, fire, water
and wjjf may cause suffering at any
time. Mvith this in view there has
been idded to the original what is

Silk from Japan.
In the year 1890 Germany sent
about $10,710,000 in silks to the Unit
ed States, and Japan sent $1,190,000
worth. In 1904-’05 Germany sent
about $4,998,000 of silk goods to the
United States, while Japan sent $5.
593.000 worth. Japanese exports of
silk goods have tripled within ten
years, increasing from $7,470,000 in
1895 to $22,410,000 in 1904.-’05, and
the ascending movement continues.

ELECTRIC MOTOR CAR
RAPIDLY SUPPLANTING STEAM
Steps Which the Great Railroads Are
Taking to Install the New Motive
A few years ago when some one had
the boldnes to propound the question:
“Will the eiectric railway motor sup
p.ant the steam locomotive?” it excit
ed a smiie of amused inereuuiity
among railroad men, and nothing
more, but the developments of recent
years has nearly demonstrated that
e.ectricity is about to give the steam
locomotive a fight to a finish, with the
odds in favor ol the tormer motive
it was in 1888 that the first street
car was successfully pulled through the
streets of Richmond, Va.t by an elec
tric motor, and trom that humble be

useiulness until it has not only be
come the motive power on suburban
and interurban lines, but many electric
roads have been built to parallel steam
lines, and has shown itself a danger
ous rival, for whereas the first electric
cars were equipped with a 15-horse
power motor, cars are now built up to
401) and 5uo-horse power.
Railroad companies are notoriously
conservative in their business meth
ods, but as every new electrical tri
umph meant another incroachment
upon the steam locomotive, these ad
vances became so persistent that at
last the railroad companies were
forced to take notice in self-defense.
And now practically every trunk line
railroad company has begun the in
stallation of electricity on its lines, or
is making preparations to take this
step in the immediate future.
The New York Central railroad is
equipping its main line with an elec
tric system to run trains from the
Grand Central station in New Y'ork up
into the state as far as Albany. At a
rerent meeting of the directors it w:is
decided to issue $150,000,000 additional
stock to be used in extending their
lines in New- York by electric roads.
The Pennsylvania rai road has lor
some time operated electric trains on
its Long Island division, and this w rk
is now being constantly extended. The
same company recently marie anothei
contract for the electrical equipment o!
its line from Philadelphia to Atlantic
City. These lines, as is well known,
have heretofore been operated by some
of the finest trains that ever ran on
this continent, and at a speed not ex
The New Y'ork, New Haven & Hart
ford recently contracted for 30 electric
locomotives to be installed on their
line between New Y'ork and Stamford,

equip some of their main tracks elec

electric current is to be generated, is
well under way, and before long elec
ric express trains will run on a regu
lar daily schedule.
The Erie railroad is the next road
which will introduce electricity on part
of its main line, and once the start has
been made there, the Gould roads will
naturally fall into line.
The Grand Trunk line recently con
tracted for electric power to operate
its lines under the St. Clair river be

The officials ot the Union Pacific
have been experimenting at Omaha
with the road’s new motor car, No. 7,
which is just out of the shops. The
design somewhat resembles an airship

and high, round windows. The car is
said to be an improvement over the
previous cars, in that special provis

grades. The system of ventilation is
pronounced to be superior, and the car
to be dustproof.
The following information as to the
car's performances is furnished by an
official of the road:

We have now the production which
is all scenery, costumes, mechanics, •
humbugs and cheap 1 terature.

think evil of our neighbors and to try
to do them evil. We scowl too much;
we smile too little.

borne before they go to a dinner party,
and then rush ofT after dinner to an
unloving game of bridge.
