The Sympathy of Friendship.
It m sublime to feel and say of an
other, I need never meet, or speak, or

ourselves or send tokens of remem

beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appcaranpe, but also affects the wear

Giles Dudley arrived in San Francisco
to Join his friend and distant relative
Henry Wilton, whom he was to assist
in an important and mysterious &'
and who accompanied Dudley on the
Terry boat trip into the city. The re
markable resemblance of the two men
is noted and commented on by passen
gers on the f.-rrw Tliey see a man with
snake eyes, which sends a thrill through

of the strange errand Dudley is to per

The mvsterious unknown woman employ
er of Dudley meets him by appointment
with "the boy" who is turned over to
Dudlev with his guards and they drive
with him to the ferry boat to take a train
out of the city.
CHAPTER XXII. Continued.
The train had not gathered headway
before a man bent beside me, and
Abrams' voice spoke softly in my ear.
"There are two of 'em aboard,"
"Yes? Where did you find them? 1
"In the stoke hole. 1 hid behind a
bench till every one had gone and saw
"em crawl out. They bribed a fireman
or deckhand or some one to keep 'em
under cover. They got off the boat
at the last minute and I sneaked after
"And they're on the train?"
"Yes, three cars back next to the
sleepers. Shall we chuck 'em over
board as soon as we get out of Oak
land?" "Not unless we are attacked." I re
turned. "Just sit down by the rear
door and give the signal if they come
this way. There'll be no trouble if
;hey are only two."
We reached Livennore at near 11
o'clock, without further iucident than
,i report from Abrams that the spies
of the enemy got off the train at every
station and watched for our landing.
Yet when we stood on the platform of
the bare little station at Livermore
and saw the yellow cars crawling
away on their eastward journey, we
looked in vain for the men who had
tracked us.
"Fooled, by thunder!" said Fitzhugh
with a laugh in which the others
joined. "They're off for Sacramento."
"They'll have to earn their money
to find us there," said Abrams.
The gray day had become grayer,
and the wind blew fresh in our faces
with the smell of rain heavy upon it
as we sought the hotel. It was a
bare country place, yet the trees grew
by the hotel and there were vines
climbing about its side and it looked
as though we might be comfortable
for a day, should be have to stay there
so long.
"Plenty of room." said the landlord,
rubbing his hands.
"We wish a large room, you know,
where we can be together." I said,
"and sleeping rooms adjoining."
"Here's just the place for you," said
the landlord, taking the way to the end
of the upper hall and throwing open
a double door. "This is the upstairs
parlor, but I can let you have it.
There's this large bedroom opening off
it the corner bedroom, sir and this
small one here at this side opens into
the parlor and the hall. Perhaps you
would like this other, too."
"This is enough for our comfort," I
assured h1m.
"There'll be a fire here in a minute,"
said the landlord, regarding the miser
able little stove with an eye of satis
faction that I attributed to its eco
nomical proportions.
"This is good enough," said Lock
hart, looking about approvingly at
the prim horsehair furniture that gave
an awesome dignity to the parlor.
"Beats our quarters below hollow,"
said Fitzhugh. "And no m ed to have
your gun where you can srab it when
the first man says boo!"
"Don't get that idea into your head."
said I. "Just be ready for anything!
that comes We" re out of the
woods yet. by a long way."
"They've gone on to Sacramento."
.laughed Fitzhugh: and the others
nodded in sympathy.
"Indeed?" I said. "How many of
you could have missed seeing a party
of nine get off at a way-station on this
There was si'' nee.
"If there's anyone here who thinks
he would have missed us when he was
set to look for us, just let him speak
up. I continued with good-natured i
raillery- j
"I guess you're right." said Fitzhush. I
i ney coulan t have missed se : a ,
"Exactly. A-rl they're net off fcr
Sacramento, aJ not far from Liver

"How long will it take to get a doz
en more up here?" I asked.
"There's a train to Nlles about
noon," said one of the men. "They
could get over from there in an hour
or two more by hard riding."
"The Los Angeles train comes
through about dark," said another.
"I think, gentlemen," said I politely,
"that we'd best look out for our de
fenses. There's likely to be a stromy
evening, I should judge."
-Well." growled Wainwright. "we
can look out for ourselves as well as
the next fellow."
"IT there's,, bloody crowns going
round, the other gang will get its
share," said Fitzhugh. And the men
about me nodded.
I was cheered to see that they need
ed nobody to do their fighting, how
ever advisable it might he to do their
thinking by deputy.
"Very good," I said. "Now I'll just
look about the town a bit. You may
come with me, if you please, Fitz
hugh." "Yes, sir."
"And Abrams and Lockhart may go
scouting if they like."
Abrams and Lockhart thought they
would like.
"Better keep together," I continued.
"What's the earliest time any one
could get here?"
"Two o'clock if they drove over."
"I'll be around here by that time.
You. Abrams, can look out for the
road and see who comes into town."
"All right, sir," said Abrams. "There
won't anybody get in here without I
catch sight of him."
Lockhart nodded his assent to the
boast, and after cautioning the men
who were left behind we sallied forth.
The town was a straggling, not un
pleasing count ry place. The business
street, was depressing with it stores
closed and its saloons open. In the
residence streets I was better pleased.
Man had done little, but nature was
prodigal to make up for his omissions.
The buildings were poor and flimsy,
but in the middle of December the
flowers bloomed, vines were green,
bushes sent forth their leaves and the
beauty of the scene even under the
leaden skies and rising gale made it a
delight to the eye.
"Not much of a place," said Fitz
hugh. looking disdainfully at the build
ings. "Hello! Here's Dick Thatcher.
How are you. Dick? It's a year of
Sundays that I haven't seen you. This
is er a friend of mine, Thatcher
you needn't mention that you've seen
"We needn't be strangers to Mr.
Thatcher," I laughed. "My name is
Wilton. Of course you won't mention
our business."
"Oh. no, Mr. Wilton," said Thatcher,
impressed, and shifting the quid of to
bacco in his lantern jaws. "Of course
"'And you needn't say anything of
our being here at all." I continued.
'It might spoil the trade."
"Mum's the word." said Thatcher.
"I'll not let a soul know till you say
'Let "er go.' O Lord! I hope the trade
goes through. We want a lot mere
capital here."
Mr. Thatcher began to scratch
head and to expectorate tobacco juice
copiously, and I suspected he was
wondering what the secret might be
that he was not to betray. So I made
haste to say:
"Is this stable yours?"
"Y?3. sir." said Thatcher eagerly.
"I've been running it nigh on two
years now."
"Pretty good business, eh, Dick?"
said Fitzhugh, looking critically about.
"Nothin' to brag on." said Thatcher
disparagingly. "You don't make a
tortune running a livery stable in
these parts times are too hard."
- ,1friJ. -; v.jj-:a rt" ? .'teK. ?-' fl.;;

And then Mr. Thatcher unbent, and
between periods of vigorous mastica
tion at his cud, introduced us to his
horses and eagerly explained the ad
vantages that his stable possessed
over any other this side of Oakland.
"Very good," I said. "We may want
something in your line later. We can
find you here at any time, I suppose."
"O Lord, yes. I live here days and
sleep here nights. But if yon want to
take a look at the property

My suggestion of a trade had misled
the worthy stableman into the impres
sion that I was considering the pur
chase of real estate.
"Ill see about it," I said.
"There's a big rain coming on, sure,"
he said warningly, as we turned back
to the hotel. '
It was a little after 1 o'clock, but as
we approached our quarters Lockhart
came running toward me.
"What is it?" I asked, as he panted,
out of breath.
"There's a special train just come
in." he said; "an engine and one car.
It's at the station now."
"So? Did any of our friends come
on it?"
"Abrams has gone down to find out."
"Come along then." said I. "We'll
see what is to be seen."
A Piece of Strategy.
A few idlers were on the platform
of the station as we approached with
much apparent unconcern, our hands
in our overcoat pockets where the
weapons lay.
"Where's the train?" I asked, look
ing at the bare track.
"Yonder," grunted a native, point
ing his thumb lazily up the road where
the engine lay by the watering tank,
slaking its thirst.
"Well, just let mo and Lockhart
walk ahead," said Fitzhugh gruffly, as
'u4BS- TWO OF 2?Tj45mECl'
we started along the track. "I
shouldn't have the first idea what we
was here for if you was to be knocked
Fitzhugh could not be much more in
the dark on this point than I, but I let
him have his way. If some one was
to be shot, I was ready to resign my
claim to the distinction in favor of the
first comer.
There were perhaps a score of peo
ple about the car.
"There's Abrams," said Lockhart.
"There's no danger.-then," said Fitz
hugh with a grin. "See, he's beckon
ing to us."
We hastened forward eagerly.

"What is it?" I asked.
"There's no one here," said Abrams,
with a puzzled look.
I went forward to the engine. The
engineer was as close-mouthed as
though words were going at a dollar
apiece and the market bounding up
ward. When I tried to question the
fireman the engineer recovered his
tongue and .had so many orders to be
attended to that my words were lost
in a rattle of coal and clang of iron.
And the engine, having drunk its
fill, changed its labored breathing to a
hissing and swishing of steam that
sent the hot, vapor far on both sides,
and then gathering speed, puffed its
swift way back the road by which it
had come, leaving the car deserted on
a siding.
"Here's a go!" cried Fitzhugh. "A
regular puzzler!"
"The first thing is to to visit the
telegraph office at once," said I.
The operator was just locking his
little room in the station as wo came
up. '
"No, sir, no telegrams," he said;
"none for anybody."
"That Is a new way of running
trains," I said with a show of indif
ference, nodding toward the empty
"Oh, there was a party came up,"
said the agent; "a dozen fellows or
more. Bill said they took a fancy to
get off a mile or more down here, and
as they were an ugly-looking crew "he
didn't say anything to stop them."
"I don't see what they can be doing
up In this part of the countr3r," I re
turned .innocently.
"I guess they know their business
anyway, it's none of mine," said the
agent. "Do you go in here, sir? Well,
it will save you from a wetting."
We had been walking toward the
hotel, and the chatty agent left us
under its veranda just as the light
drops began to patter down in the dust
of the road, and to dim the outlines of
the distant hills.
The home guard of our party re
ceived the news' calmly.
Wainwright had established a
modus vlvendi with his young charge
and I saw that be managed to get a
word out of him now and then. I had
to abandon the theory that the boy
was dumb, but I suspected that it was
fear rather than discretion that bird
led his tongue.
"Do you think the gang have got
into town?" asked one.
"They'll have wet jackets If they are
on the road," I returned, looking at
the rain outside.
"Hadn't we better find out?" in
quired Wainwright.
"Are you in a hurry?" I asked in
turn. "The landlord has promised to
send up a good dinner in a few min
ues." "But you see "
"Yes, I-see," I interrupted. "I see
this that they are here, that there
are a dozen or more of them, and that
they are ready for any deviltry. What
more can we find out by roaming over
tho country?"
Wainwright nodded his agreement
with me.
"And then," I continued "they won't
try to do anything until after dark
not before the middle of the night. I
should say or until the townspeople
have gone to bed."
"You're right, sir," said Abrams. "A
dark night and a clear field suits that
gang best."
"Well, here's the dinner," said I;
"so you can make yourselves easy.

The men looked blank. Porter was
the first to speak.
"You don't mean "

said blandly, rising from the table.

French Scientist Advocates the Mark
ing of Murderers.
A French scientist has made a re
markable proposal in regard to the
punishment of murderers In France.
Ke is of the opinion that neither guil
lotining nor life imprisonment is an
adequate or suitable punishment for
murder. The guillotine, he points out,
inflicts absolutely no suffering on the
criminal, who is probably a man whe
has passed his life in inflicting suffer'
ing on others. As to life imprison
inent, it entails a heavy expense to. the
country and generally reduces the
prinoner to insanity. He suggests,
therefore,, that such criminals shall be
branded on the face with a redhot
iron and then released. The branding,
he thinks, should oe done in public,
the "M," s!gnifying meurtrier. the
French word for murderer, being
stamped as an ineradicable mark on
the forehead of the criminal. He would
thus bear about to the end of hi3 days
the mark of his crime, and be a con
stant warning to his kind.
Watching the "Kids."
A sign displayed in front of a New
York department store is the delight

store's bargain counters. The store
employs a fatherly-looking man to
stand outside and watch the young
hopefuls while the mothers wage bat
tle with each other in front nt tho
counters. The scheme has proved a
great success. 4
