A FOOL FOR LOVE
By FRANCIS LYNDE
AUTHOR OF "THE CHAPTERS.1 ETC
CHAPTE3 DC Contained.
Bat Im the days that followed, days
which the sun rose and set In
headless winter splendor and the
heavy snows still held aloof, Adams'
prediction wrought itself out into
Mker fact After the single appeal to
. force, Mr. Darrah seemed to hate
given p the fight. None the less, the
departure ef the Rosemary was de
layed, and its hospitable door was al
' ways open to the Utah chief of con
struction and his assistant.
Winton jtookbls welcome broadly,
a whair lover would"riot7 and" within
a week was spending most of his
evenings in the Rosemary this at a
time when every waking moment of
the day and night was deeply mort
gaged to the chance of success. For
aow that the Rajah had withdrawn
his opposition, nature and the per
versity of inanimate things had taken
a hand, and for a fortnight the work
of track-laying paused fairly within
sight of tbe station at Argrntlne.
- j First it was a carload of steel ac
cidentally derailed and dumped into
Quartz creek at precisely the worst
possible point in the lower canyon, a
jagged, rock-ribbed, cliff-bound gorge
where each separate piece of metal
had to be hoisted out singly by a der
rick erected for tbe purpose a process
which effectually blocked the track
for three entire days. Next it was an
other landslide (unhelpcd by dyna
mite, this) just above the station, a
crawling cataract of loose, sliding
shale which, painstakingly dug . out
and dammed with plank bulkhead dur
ing the day. would pour down and
bury bulkhead, buttresses, and the
very right ef -way in the night
In his right mind the mind of an
ambitions yoaag captain of industry
whe sees defeat with dishonor staring
film in the face Winton would have
fought all the more desperately for
these hindrances. But, unfortunate
ly, he was no longer an industry cap
tain with .an eye single to success,
fflc was become that anomaly d'spised
rf the working world a man in love.
"It's no use shutting our eyes to
the fact. Jack. said Adams one even
ing when his chief was making ready
for hl3 regular descent upon the Rosa-
aiary. We shall have to put night
shifts at work on that sliale-slide if
we hope ever to get past it with the
"Hang the shale!" was the impa
. tient rejoinder. Tin no galley slave."'
Adams' slow smile came and went
In cynical rippllngs.
"It is pretty difficult to say precise
ly what you are just now. But I can
prophesy wbat you are going to bs
if you don't wake up and come alive."
Having no reply to thi3, Adams
went back to the matter of night
"If yon will authorize it, I'll put a
night gang on and boss It myself.
What do you say?"
"I say you arc no end of a good
fellow, Morty. And that's the plain
fact. I'll do as much for you some
time." Til be smashed If you will you'll
never get the chance. When I let a
pretty girl make a fool of me "
But the door of the dinkey slammed
behind the outgoing one, and the
prophet of evil was left to organize
his night assault on the shale-slide,
and to command it as best he could.
So. as we say, the days of stubborn
toil with the enthusiasm taken out,
slipped away unfruitful. Of the en
tire Utah force Adams alone held him
self up to the mark, and being only
second in command, he was unable to
keep tbe bad example of tba chief
from working like a leaven of inert
ness among the men. Branagan
voiced the situation in rich brogue
one evening whsn Adams had ex
hausted his limited vocabulary of
abuse on the force for its apathy.
'Tis no use, ava. Misther Adams. If
cyou was the boss himself 'twould be
you as would put the comether on
thim too qi'ick. But it's 'like masther.
like mon.' The b'ys all know that
Misther Winton don't care a damn;
and they'll net be hurtin' thimselves
wid the wurrk."
And the Rajah? Bstween his times
of smoking high-priced cigars with
Whiten? in the lounging-room of the
Rosemary, he was swearing Jubilates
in the privacy of his working-dea
stateroom, having tri-daily weather
reports wired to him by way of Car
bonate and Argentine station, and
busying himself in the intervals with
pending and reviving sundry mysteri
ous telegrams in cipher.
Thus Hr. Somerville Darrah, all
going well fcr him until one fateful
. morning when he made the mistake
ef congratulating his ally. Then

Umbo of their own.
The Rajah rubbed his hands de
lightedly. "We are coming oa famously, fa

swiftly, and Virginia's- voice sank to
its softest cadence.
"Have I been an accomplice in this

ing down the fire he had so rashly
lighted. Then Jastrow came in with
one of the interminable cipher tele
grams and Virginia was left alone.
-For a time she sat at the deserted
breakfast table, dry-eyed, hot-hearted,
thinking such thoughts as would come
crowding thickly upon the heels of
such a revelation. Winton would fail;
a man with honor, good reput?, his
entire career at stake, as he himself
had admitted, would go down to mis
erable oblivion and defeat lacking
some friendly hand to smite him alive
to a sense of his danger. And. in her

womanly in its failure to give even
the remotest hint of tbe new and bind
ing reason why he must not come.
And just before luncheon an obliging
Cousin Billy was prevailed upon to
undertake its delivery.
When he had found Winton at the
shale-slide, and had given him Miss
Carteret's mandate, the Reverend Bil
ly did not return directly to the Rose
mary. On the contrary, he extended
his tramp westward, stumbling on
aimlessly up the canyon over the tin
surfaced embankment of the new line.
Truth to tell, Virginia's messenger
was not unwilling to spend a little
time alone with tha immensities. To
put It baldly, he was beginning to be
desperately cloyed with the sweets of
a day-long Miss Bessie, ennuye on the
one hand and despondent on the other.
Why could not the Cousin Bessies
see. without being told in so many
words, that the "heart of a man may
have been given in times long past

ginia, let us say. And why must the
Cousin Virginias, passing by the life

thus brutally fairly at the head of an
acquaintance of a day?
So questioning the immensities, the
Reverend Billy came out aft:r some
little time in a small upland valley
where the two lines, old and new, ran
parallel at the same level, with low
embankments less than a hundred
Midway of the valley the hundred
yard interspace was bridged by a
hastily constructed spur track start-

The situation explained itself, even
to a Reverend Billy. The Rajah had
not been idle daring the Interval of
dinner-givings and social divagations.!
He had acquired the right of way
across the Utah's line for his .blockading-
spnr; had takea advantage of
Wintcn's inalertness to construct the
track; and was now prepared to hold

Calvert turned back from the en
trance of the valley, and was minded,
in a spirit' of fairness, to pass the
word concerning the new obstruction
on to the man who was most vitally
concerned. But alas! even a Rev

a lover. Here was defeat possible

rival, with the probability increasing

the canyon on the C. ft G. R. side, he
turned up the gulch at the back of

of the afternoon tramping beneath the

station and the private car.

managed to keep Virginia from ques

ment of cataclysms in the evening.
But Virginia read momentous things
in his face and eyes, and when the
time was fully ripe she cornered him.
It was the old story over again, of
a woman's determination to know pit

knew what he was about Calvert had
birayed the Rajah's secret which
was also the secret of the cipher tele

lover could lay hold of. But when

COFFEE TRUST IN BRAZIL.
Price of South American Product, to
New York. The financing of Bra
zil's coffee valorization plan has been
arranged. Bankers and merchants,
internationally known and all identi
fied with the coffe trade, will advance
tne money needed about 120,000.030.
The bankers and merchants are lo
cated in New York,' London, Havre
The object of the coffee valorization
plan is to maintain coffee at a re
munerative price to the grower by
establishing a minimum quotation at
which it is to be upheld by purchases
of coffee on account of the three
states of Brazil Sao Paulo, Rio and
Mines. Interest on the loans made
is guaranteed and paid by a tax on
every bag of coffee shipped.
The three contracting states bind
themselves to maintain in the native
markets a minimum price of 32 to 35
milreis per bag of 60 kilos for the first
year. This price is to be gradually
raised after the first year to a maxi
mum of 40 milreis.
The contracting states bind them
selves to restrict or discourage by dis
criminating taxation the exportation
of coffee of inferior grades and they
further bind themselves tb pass laws
preventing the extension of coffee acre
age for two years after Jan. 1, 1907.
PECULIAR CASE IS DECIDED.
Bigamist's First Wife Gets Half of
Estate and Second Nothing.
Wichita, Kan. Federal Judge Pol
lock has rendered a decision in an
unusual case that came up from
Comanche county. It was the result
of a bigamous marriage by James Mc
Laughlin. McLaughlin was an old soldier who
deserted his wife in Pennsylvania,
and, coming to Kansas with a young
woman named Annie. Scott, married
her and lived with her 30 years, raising
eight children. Upon his death the
second wife, who says she knew noth
ing of bis previous marriage, applied
for a pension, and this led to the dis
covery of wife No. 1.
The court decided that the Penn
sylvania wife was entitled to half the
estate and that McLaughlin's children
by his second wife were entitled to
the other half, while tbe second wife
was entitled to nothing, though It was
largely through her efforts that the
property was accumulated.

In the recent dastardly attempt to destroy the family of M. Stolypin. the
Russian premier, the conspirators drove ob to the front door and were admitted
to the vestibule of the reception room.' where they flung the bomb. The
prime minister, who was in his reception room, had a narrow escape, but the
killed and injured numbered 30. Above the door was the balcony in which
the prime minister's son and daughter were sitting. The assassins who
wrecked M. Stolypin's house came in a carriage, which was blown some dis
tance away by the explosion. The coachman perished.

Guadalajara, Mexico. Thoroughly
exhausted, their hands, feet and legs
burned by contact with red-hot rocks
and lava and suffering as the result
of having inhaled sulphurous gases for
several hours, 12 delegates to the in
ternational geological congress have
returned here after an ascent of the
Colima Volcano, the only continuous
ly active volcano in North America.
The party includes W. Harvey Weed,
of Washington, D. C. The Washing
ton man reached tbe crater of the
volcano, 13,000 feet above the level of
In the last 100 years not more than
six men have succeeded in reaching
Colima's crater. On account of the
precipitous character of the mountain
and the thick covering of sand and
ashes the ascent of Colima is regard
ed as one of the most dangerous in
the world. The deadly gases that
issue from the crater and the possi
bility of a violent eruption at any
time make the ascent doubly perilous.
The last man to attempt to reach
the crater was Dr. Peter H. Goldsmith,
of Harvard university. He failed, and
announced'that it was practically im
possible to get as far as the crater.
Thirty-five geologists started to
make the ascent, of the volcano. At
a cost of $1,000 the state government
built a bouse especially for their ac
commodation at the foot of the moun
tain. .The entire 35 climbed as far
as the end of the timber line, and
there 23 lost courage and turned back.
The remaining 12 struggled for six
hours to reach the crater. Long poles
were used to determine footholds, as
great pits of sand and ashes, each of
them capable of ingulfing dozens of
men, exist along Colima's sides. The
