"Yes," he answered. "Last I saw o'
him ho wns on an Iceberg sullln' out

It will be essential at this point to
return to I 'mi! Miller, whom we leit
on an lex-hen; floating out to sea. The
swelling Hood ami tossing al.es of

shore mmle It utterly Impossible for

of the nionst'-r above Imtlcated that a
crisis was coining, which would de

ihe mountain of ice.
Through nil his misfoi'tuties Paul

,i shelf was several feet above the

prepared for an assault. With nerves
as steady as If engaging In tin- most

t ie sldo of the monster's head. When
Hiiro of his aim hu pulled t'e- tiller.
There followed a sharp report and
the hear dropped on his haunches his
nose In tho air.
Paul cocked his rub' and tired a
second shot at the b'-a.-l's head. It
iell on tho Ice and after a few spas
modic kicks lay still. He scut a
third Into the back of its head, hut
it was wholly unnei e-.sary, lor the
other bullets had done the work.
With hla knife he removed the skin
from tho animal, and, dlniblng as
iigh as ho dared, hung it upon one
of those spires of Ice. In tho hope
some scullng schooner or whaling ship
might see It and send a boat to his
relief. When night came he lay down
on tho snow and Ice, and, notwith
standing his pcillous situation,
Ho was awakened soon after dawn
by tho sound of voices near.
"What say ye nou?" oi-e seemed to
say to another.
"I say nowt," was the answer. "If
he ho there find him."
"Sure, man, ye ennna say as a hoar
ill peel his own skin from his back."
"Wool, there's a stlffenor," return'
ed another voice.
Paul rose and mechanically laid his
hand on the rifle at his side. Only
a few hours before he wns wishing
ho had not shot the hear, and that it
had destroyed him Instead of he
shooting it, but now that his life
might probably be In danger, It grow
suddenly very sweet.
He rnlsed his head a trille higher
ind listened intently at the voices.
"Push alongside anil let a lad go
ashore," said another voice.
Then he plainly heard the splashing
of paddles In Ihe water. Ho crept
along on hand ami knees, holding his
rlllo In one hand and a cocked re

Then he raised his head just a little

Ho tried to think where ho had

It began to be whispered ovei tho
town that I auta HiNi was losing Iter
reason. Tluodore Lackland was
shocked and grieved at the thought
for in his si Itish way he loved liei
madly. He would have given worlds
to possess this matchless beauty, who
had wholly captivated his soul.
At this time a mont remarkable
event tiniisplii-d- -an event that was
more a surpil.-e to l.auia than any one
else. A bachelor uncle living In Wyo
ming died and left her twelve thou
sand dollars all he possessed.
"Tills will enable me to procure an
outfit and go in seaich of Paul,' said
Laura to Mrs. Miller. The widow en
folded her in her arms and begged her
to abandon such a mad design.
In vain she wept, prayed and plead
with her. Umra was so Impressed with
the conviction that she must go. She
hnd her way. Buying her outfit and
securing the set vice of a faithful,
trusty man who had worked for her
father, she prepared for the Journey.

a short time before her departure. On
reaching Fresno she started Ironi the
depot to walk home. It was so Into
the sun had set, and the shadows of
evening begnn to creep over the land
scape. She heal d ' footsteps at her
side and Lackland's voice said:
"Miss Bush, I have lieaid a rumor
that ou are going to start for Alas
He walked on in silence for a mo
ment, while his pale face wore a pen
sive, sad expression, and his eyes were
upon the ground. His determination
to conquer made him selfish nnd
scheming. At last he said:
"Laura, you do not understand me.
I am a true filend to you; you may
not believe It. but I am. That other
time my passion was hot. I was wrong,
perhaps, In denouncing tho man you
loved, but surely you will forgive me."
She answered that she was taught
she must forgive In order to bo for
given. As a drowning man clutches
at a straw, he giaspcd at something
In her words, and was encouraged to
"Laura. If you would let me sympa
thize with you in this loss, 1 would
freely mingle my tears with yours.
Oh, It you would only lot me bo a
brothel moie than a brother "
"Silence, Mr. Lackland," sho quickly
Interrupted. "I will henr no more from
you. Heie I am at homo; good
night." She darted Into the house, quickly
closing the door after her and leaving
him standing nut In tho cold, diuk
street. For a moment he stood gazing
upon tho door which had closed upon
the being he loved, and then tinned
slowly about, his thin, white lips com
pressed, nnd his fingers dosed tlrmly
as If he had the lockjaw.
As he boarded the midnight train
for San FrunTlseo he murmured, half
"Something desperate must be done.
I shall now play my last trump card."
Meanwhile Laura was completing
arrangements lor an early departure.
Ben llolton, her father's faithful do
mestic, was tho only poison she en
gaged to go with her. A party was
forming at Seattle, and thither she
went with all her supplies. Mis. Mil

UNIQUE ACTION OF THE TIDE
Reversible Waterfall at St. John, New
We have reversible vests, revers
ible windmills, nnd all sorts of rover
slides nowadays, but St. John, In New
Brunswick', Canada, has tho only re
versible waterfall in the world. In
tho morning t'u-re Is a fall downstream
of Hi feet, but in the afternoon tho
water runs upstream and falls ovor
tho other way. This phenomenon Is
caused by the strength of the wonder
ful tides ot tho Bay of Fundy, which
meet and overcome the water from a
river lfio miles long, which empties
Into die harbor of St. John through a
narrow gorge less than .100 feet wide.
Thero Is a suspension bridge over the
gorge where this dally marvel occurs,
and hundreds of people go to see It.
At half-tide Ihe water is smooth over
the dum ami vessels go up ami down
In wjfoty. Tho tides of tho hay of
Fundy are the heaviest In the world.
If you nro ever lu Now Brunswick
and it's time for tho tide to come in
jou want to make for the bluffs If you
aro not fond of the water.
Vessels come Into St. John harbor
and when the ildo goes out tho water
tuns clear out from under thorn and
they settle down upon tho gravel bot
tom of the slips. Wagons nro thou
driven alongside and cargo Is trans
ferred direct. It Is an odd spectacle
to sco schooners sitting up high and
dry, with no water near them, look
ing ns though the only way for thorn
to get to sea would bo to fly. Some
writer has remarked thnt water makes
nn astonishing difference) In tho ap
pearance of a river, and it certainly
does make a big change In thu looks
ot tlie St. John water front.

WOMEN WHO STAKE DETC.
Are Never Satisfied, and Prove To De
Remarkably Hard Losers.
A marked featuie of the betting at
Saratoga Is that It. Is Indulged In by
pnoilcally all the women who attend
the races. The commissioners wrlto
on the same pages of their notdiooks
the wages of a Vanderbllt and the bets
of a Vanderbllt governess, while
others pass fioiu school teacher to
lady's maid nnd dressmaker to mll
llonaire's wife, listening respectfully
and writing down the order that, these
fair spectators give.
Tho lime of the commissioners' lives
conies at evening, when they aro set
tling up and trlng to explain what
bets and odds they played and why
tho sums of money that they turn
over nro all that the fair ones are en
titled to. I have seen four men ex
plaining o u rich woman that thu
18 given to her was all that sho had
won, after paying her bets and paying
back money she hud borrowed to bet
"Why," she exclaimed, "I bet on
every race and 1 won on two out ot
nix, and on one race nlono 1 won
"Yes." wns the reply, "but you bor
rowed flit nnd have paid It back, and
tho agent bus taken his 10 per cent
commission, nnd you are ahead $18."
"Well," sho leplled, "if all you gen
tlemen say It is right, or courso It Is,
but I know 1 won over $30."
And that wns a woman who would
pay $50 for a hat or $r00 for a gown
and think far less of parting with
$1,000 than sho would of winning $30
on a horse race.
