Dr. Bascom was assiduous in his at-
icntions to Pearson, anil every day
called to sec him. He made it a point
to speak of the case mwst seriously, and
his face was always griivc and thought-

Two or three days passed thus, when
one evening the doctor made his regular
visit to find Pearson in a terrible fret.
"He has been wanting to get up all
day," the attendant explained, "and I
have had hard work to keep him in
"Wanting to get up?" the doctor
cried, in astonishment- "Why, what's
come over ycu, Pearson?"
"I'm tired of lying here," Pearson
said, "and I want to get out. My limb
feels all right, now."
"Does, ch? Do you think it is all
"It feels as though it must be."
"Don't matter anything about how it
feels. The question is, is it all right?"
"I believe it is."
The doctor laughed heartily, then
"Sec here, Pearson, do you know how
long it takes a broken limb to heal?"
"Well, it takes weeks. You must lay
right there for a long time yet. And
jou," turning to the attendant, "must
sec that he does. The soreness is leaving
his limb and he is getting on splendid
ly, and we can't afford to take any
chances on having a relapse."
During the next two days the doctor
managed to spend a great part of his
xime with his patient, resolved to keep
him in bed if he had to do it by force.
3 hit the next day he was called out of
town, and it was nearly night when he
He repaired immediately to Pearson's
room, and found Pearson gone, and tho
attendant staring about in wonder.
"Where's my patient?" the doctor de
manded. "I don't know," said the attendant
"He sent me out a few minutes since
-on an errand, and when I returned just
now he was gone."
"The devil!" exclaimed the doctor,
tearing out of the room and off to
Scragg-f office, and astonishing that
.gentleman by bursting in on him with:
"Scraggs, the devil's out."
"What devil?" asked Scraggs.
"Why, Pearson, man."
"What!" cried Scraggs. "Is he out
"Yes, and gone."
"The devil! And TJlatchford has not
come yet. I'm afraid he'll beat us
"I kept him there as long as I could j
I held him down for a week."
"Yes, and Blatchford ought to have

"He'll probably get here to-night
"then, and all we can do is to wait."
"Yes, wait and watch. We must
"find Pearson and keep an eye on him.
You have no idea where he has gone?"
"Not the least, but he is no doubt
somewhere about town."
"Then we had better look him up."
The two men went out an3 began a
quiet, unostentatious search for Pear
son, and they kept it up until they had
assured themselves perfectly that he
was nowhere about. There had been
no train ont of town that afternoon, so
they knew he had not gone away by
After considering the matU-r for a
few minutes they decided to inquire at
the stables, and from the first one they
visited they learned that Pearson had
got a horse and rode ont in the country.
"He's gone to Green's," said Scraggs.
"I'd bet a sheepskin on that."
"Yes, he's gone to Green's," replied
the doctor, despairingly. "He's got the
best of us after all."
"Maybe he has," said Scraggs, "but
Pearson had indeed gone to Green's.
Never for a moment during all those
days that Dr. Bascom kept him in bed
had thoughts of Louise escaped him.
Besides, he was haunted with a terrible
fear. He had the uneasiness natural
to a guilty conscience, and every hour
he was in dread lest his purpose and
actions leak out"and become public
Not ohy was he in fear of losing
Louise, but a greater calamity over
hung him. He had discounted to an
eastern speculator all of the farm
mortgages held by the Buckeye Loan
and Trust Company, and had Jcro
ceeds then in his pocket. Jfifgoing
away with Louise he had arranged to
take thousands of dollars of Blatch
During his confinement he was
weighed down with the "fear that this
embezzlement should be discovered and
himself apprehended. Every day this
fear grew stronger ucon him, until at
last he felt certain thsfcthc secret must
come out, and he resolved to lie still no
longer. So r-nding hisjtemiant away
he arose from his bed and was surprised
to find his limb intact. With a curse
on the doctor whom he put down as an
ignoramus, he hurried from the room
and was soon on his way to John
"Thank my stars," he muttered, as
he cantered across the prairie, "I am
not too late yet. I have only to give
Louise notice to be ready, and to-night
drive out for her, and inside of 6ix
hours we shall be rolling to the west
ward as fast as steam can take us."
Louise had, of course, been informed
of Pearson's misfortune. Pearson
through his friend Mills, had taken
pains to keep her informed on his con
dition, and she was aware that he
would come again soon to claim her an
swer to his question. So she waited
day after day with calm resignation for
the time to come for the completion of
her misery and shame.
When Pearson reached Green's, Louise
received him quietly, and whatever her
feelings were she had mastered them so
well that she betrayed no emotion,
either of sorrow or pleasure.
"Louise, I have at last come to learn
your decision," Pearson said, when they
were alone. "I have given you more
time than I promised, and I suppose you
have your answer ready."
"I have," she replied, quietly.
"And it is"
"As you wish."
"Then to-night be ready for going
away. I shall come at a couple of
hours after dark with a closed carriage,
and by moving promptly and losing no
time we can catch the night train west,
and before our escapade becomes known
we will be far from here. You under
stand that there must be no delay?"
"And you will see that there is none?"
"Then I suppose that is all," and as
Pearson spoke he arose as if to go, but
suddenly stopping came over to the girl's
side and said:
"Since you are so soon to be mine,
Louise, you cannot object to me kiss
ing you. Here, just once before I go."
"Xo, no, no," she cried as she drew
herself back fromhim. "Spare me that,
"Humph," Tearson muttered, "you'll
have to get used to that pretty soon
now, and you might as well begin one
time as another. Do you think I will
let you shun me as you would a snake
when you arc my own?" .
"Xo, no, but spare me now. I have
consented to give myself to you to
night. From thenceforward I am
yours, but to-day let me be free. It is
not much I ask, and you will surely
grant so small a request."
"Ah, yes, I suppose so," Pearson re
plied with a coarse laugh. "Be your
own mistress to-day, for after this you
arc mine. Be ready at eight to-night,
and meet me at the fence below the
Louise said this so calmly and so
freely that Pearson was constrained to
gaze at her in wonder, and as he watched
her quiet, immovable countenance he
began to doubt her intentions.
"Look here, Louise," he said, "I want
you to bear in mind that I am in earn
est, and that I will brook no foolishness.
You fail me to-night in one particular
and your father will pay for it."
"I shall not fail 3ou," Louise replied,
in the same calm tone and manner. "I
have decided to follow your wishes, and
I shall not turn back. Have no fears
"Very well, then. Be ready for my
coming at eight to-night, and then for
the far west and a happy life happy at
least for me," he added, under his
breath. "Good-by for a few hours."
The sun was not high as Pearson gal
loped back toward Magic City, but
hung suspended in the distant western
sky but a little way above the edge of
"There is no time to lose," he
mused, as he rode swiftly on,
"and I must move rapidly to make con
nections all around. I have my ar
rangements well fixed, thank goodness,
so there need be no delay. I've got old
Blatchford's money all safe here m my
pocket, and our tickets for the train are
there, too. The carriage is arranged
for, and I have a driver who knows
what is expected of him and who can be
depended on, so there will be no trouble
on that score. Then the man
who is to officiate as a clergy
man and go through the part
of marrying us is all right and can be
depended on for promptness. I've got
everything in ship-shape and will come
out successfully, potwithstanding the
delay caused by old Bascom's want of
sense. Bah! the idea of a man prac
ticing medicine when he hasn't sense

fool for malpractice, but I can't bother
about that now. Louise and forty thou
sand dollars of Blatchford's money
safely in my possession is pay enough
for all the inconvenience I have suf
fered. By Jove, though, I did get terri
bly worked up yesterday over this af
fair. I was afraid old Scraggs would
get wind of matters and telegraph to
Blatchford and get him out here, and I
knew if he did it would be all day with
me. But that fear's past now, and I've
got clear sailing."
Thus, confident of the final and com
plete success of his plans, Pearson con
tinued his way in high spirits, congrat
ulating himself n the clever manner
in which lie had worked his schemes,
and felicitating himself on the bright
prospects the future opened up before
Louise, in the meantime, set about the
preparations it was necessary she should
make for going away. There was
not much to do aside from writing a
letter to her parents, which was to be
sent back to them on the morrow from
Magic City. But writing this letter re
quired a long time, since it was hard
to word it so as to make the shock as
light as possiblo to those loved ones she
was leaving. She wished to make her
conduct appearto them in the most
favorable light, yet she could not in
form them that she had taken the step
to save" her father from state prison.
She realized that the knowledge of her
sacrifice being made for his sake would

For near two hours -'he wrote and re

more time signed and sealed the last

ing her conduct appear excusable to her
parents without explaining the cause of
it, and resolved not to do that.
"It is better," she said with a sigh, as
she placed the letter away, "that I

never forgive himself, and would die of
a broken heart; but as it is they will
pity me and mourn for me, and perhaps
think much worse of me than I deserve
but they will live over it."
Having completed all her arrange
ments, Louise went in and under a
pretense of performing some service
for her mother, found an opportunity
to kiss both her parents, and then, feel
ing that she was going to break down,
hurried from tho room, never, as she
supposed, to enter it again. She seated
herself by the little window, and gaz
ing out into the gathering evening
shadows waited for the coming of
When Scraggs and Dr. Bascom left
the livery stable, whither thej went to
inquire after Pearson, they bent their
steps toward Scraggs' office, where they
decided to go to consult on the affair
and try to devise some means of hold
ing Pearson in check. When they ar
rived at theoflicc they found Paul Mark
ham there awaiting Scraggs return.
Paul was quite well acquainted with
both Scraggs and the doctor, and he
knew what their sentiments were to
ward Pearson, so he had no hesitancy
in speaking out in the presence of both
men, though he had come to fee Scraggs
"Mr. Scraggs," Paul began, "I am ac
quainted with your action! relative to
Louise Green and that scoundrel Pear
son, and I know you to be a friend of
the girl, and I came to consult you about
her. Something has to e done to save
her from that scoundrel, and it
has to bo done promptly. I have been
on the watch and I lave had another
person on guard forme, and between
us we have discovrcd exactly how
matters stand. To-mght Pearson is go
ing to take Louise way, and we must
prevent him." J
"I was sure of mat," said Scraggs to
"I was afraid fi it," replied the lat
ter. "I wish to leaven the confounded
scamp had got leg broken."
"Yes." said Scraggs, "or his neck
would have been better. I don't sec
why you didnx attend to that while you
were about i Markham."
"But, genlemon,-" said Paul, "we
havc-no timto lose; we must act and
"That's so," replied the doctor; "we
must act-we must do something.
Scraggs, vhat do you suggest?"
"I am i)st," and Scraggs shook his
head, dobtingly. "I don't know what
to do. Vc could save the girl by force,
but wecan't do it without putting
Green ip for it. I wish old Blatchford
was hce. That would settle the busi
ness in short order."
"PeSiaps he will come this evening,"
the dtor suggested.
"pi-haps," replied Scraggs, "but' I

"We'll do it, doctor!" Scraggs ex
claimed, "and we'll mean business,
too. I can get up a dozen men on five
minutes' notice to go with us, and you
may. bet your boots we'll not be slow
about giving the deuced scamp a dose

"I'm afraid," said Paul, "that

"Yes, it would," promptly replied the
old doctor. "It wouldn't take us long
to serve Mills with a dose of the same
kind of medicine if he got to cutting
around too much."
"That's what it wouldn't," said
Scraggs. "The country wouldn't be
any the worse off if it was rid of both
"Xot a bit," said the doctor. "So
we'll wait for the train, and if Blatch

TOE SERPENT IS TnWAUTEn.
As Pearson rode into town on his re
turn from Green's, he saw the train
from the east approaching, and he also
saw Scraggs and Doctor Hascom walk
ing down in the direction of the depot.
He did not attach any importance to
the fact of these men being together,
but when a moment later they were
joined by Paul Markham. he began to
suspicion that something was wrong,
and he was seized with fear.
"They're plotting against me," he
mused, "and like as not old Scraggs has
telegraphed for Hlatchford, and they
arc going to the train to meet him. Uy
George, I believe that old doctor is in
Scraggs' emploj-, and his keeping mo
in bed all those days was a put up job
to gain time on me. I was a fool not to
know that sooner. Well, if Blatchford
is coming I've got to be going. This
town ain't big enough to hold us both."
With that Pearson quickly dismount
ed and running down through the stable
turned down an alley and crossed the
railroad track just before the train
passed. Taking a position on the
opposite side from the depot he
watched the passengers as they
left the cars. First a traveling
man came out, then a woman and
two children, and it seemed that
that was all. and Pearson began to con
gratulate himself again. Hut his con
gratulations were short lived, for di
rectly another passenger emerged, and
Pearson knew only too well who it was.
There was no mistaking Hlatchford,
although he was so aged and bent and
so woefully changed from what he had
been when Pearson saw him last
"Curse the luck," Pearson muttered,
"and old Scraggs and Hascorn. The jig
is up for me. I've got to fly from here,
and I've lost Louise; but I've got Blatch
So saying he slipped on board the
train asit moved out, and was whirled
away from Magic City forever.

BRUTALITY OF SQUAWS.
An Vicious In War as tho Racks Kulro
Two soldiers from the Seventh cav
alrp, U. S. A., were at the union depot
one night. They were only twenty
one or twenty-two years old and were
tired of army life. They were going
cast on temporary furloughs, at the
end of which they would get dis
charges. Both were with their comrades in
Dakota in the Indian troubles, in
which Sitting Hull was killed. One of
them was in tha famous battle of
Wounded Knee creek, which caused"
the court martial of CoL Forsythe, the
office commanding, for shooting down
"Did you ever kill an Indian and
know you were killing him?" one of
them was asked.
"Yes, indeed. I had to kill Indians
or they would have killed me. We
were so close wo couldn't fire our guns,
but had to use them reversed as clubs."
"Your colonel was tried for his con
duct that day, wasn't he?"
"Yes, but he was acquitted. You
sec the way it was the bucks and
squaws were dressed very much alike
and the bucks would dodge in among
the squaws and keep right on firing at
us. It would have been nonsense for
the colonel to allow that. When he or
dered us to fire we tried to hit the
bucks who were fighting, and if we
hit a few squaws we couldn't help it.
They were in bad company. But the
fact is the squaws were as bad as any
body. I f a squaw saw a wounded sol-'
dicr lying helpless on the ground she
would put a knife into him. They
seemed to like to cut into the officers
who wore stripes, and there were
wounded sergeants who had a slit clear
down their legs, paralleling the white
stripe down their trousers. This was all
done by squaws They mutilated bod
ies in a horrible manner. They cut
the top of one poor fellow's skull, took
out his brains and filled his head with
snow. O, there's nothing delicate about
the squaw." Kansas City Star.

It is a conventional jest that women,
before responding to calls at the tele

adjust the draperies of their dress.
Whether the accusation lie true or not,
here is an incident which shifts the
laugh to an opposite quarter. It is to
the effect that a prominent merchant
in the capital city of a state sat at his
desk one hot day in July. In order to
secure some degree of comfort he had
taken off his coat and his collar and his
necktie. A clerk came into the room.
"His excellency, the governor, wishes
to speak with you through the tele

Martinez, a miner just returcd from a
long stay in old Mexico, was stabbed
to the heart by his mother at El Rito,
a Mexican plaza about fifteen miles
from here. '
The stabbing was the terrible result
of an intentional piece of misinforma
tion by George Hallston. a young
American. Some years ago Rodrisro
Martinez went to old Mexico to make,
his fortune in mining leaving behind a
uother and a sweetheart
Hallston loved the latter's betrothed
and brought the mother and sweet
heart the news that Martinez had been,
killed in a fight
Martinez returned to his native town,
however, to find his sweetheart un
married and his mother alive. About
the first man he met was his supposed
friend Hallston. The latter persuaded
him to visit his mother with him

his rival ran to the mother's house and
Kiid that he would bring the slayer of
her son to her in a few minutes and
thr.t she should kill the rascal.
When Rodrigo entered the enraged
old woman pounced upon him and
stabbed him to the heart A moment
later she found her mistake. Raving
mad, she cut her throat
