RETIRING FROM BUSINESS.
BY BHET IIARTE.
"What the Colonel's business was
nobody knew, nor did anybody care,
particularly. He purchased for cash
only, and lie never grumbled at the
price of anything that he wanted ;
who could ask more than that ?
Curiously people occassional!'
wondered how, when it had been
fully two years since the Colonel,
with every one else, abandoned
Duck Creek to the Chinese, he
managed to spend money freely,
and to lose considerable at cards and
horse races. In fact, the keoper of
that one of the two Challenge Hill
saloons, which the Colonel did not
patronize, was once heard to absent-mindedly
wonder whether the
Colonel hadn't a money-mill feome
where where he turned out double
eagles aud "slug," (the coast name
for fifty-dollar gold pieces.)
"When so important a personage
as a bar-keeper indulged publicly in
an idea, the inhabitants of Challenge
Hill, like good Californians every
where, considered themselves in
duty bound to give grave considera
tion, so for a few days certain in
dustrious professional gentlemen,
who won money of the Colonel, care
fully weighed some of the brightest
pieces, and tested them with acids,
and tested them and sawed them in
two, and retried them and melted
them up and had the lumps assayed.
The result wus a complete vindi
cation of the Colonol, and a loas of
considerable custom to the indis
The Colonel was as good natured
a man as hat! ever been known at
Challenge Hill, but being mortal,
the Colonel had his occassional
times of despondency, and one of
them occurred after a series of race?
in which he had staked his all on his
own bay mare Tipsie, and had lost.
Looking reproachfully at his be
loved animal, he failed to heed the
aching void of his pockets, and
drinking deeply, swearing elo
quently, and glaring deliantly at all
mankind, were equally unproduc
tive of coin.
The boys at the saloon sympa
thized most feelingly with the Colo
nel ; they were unceasing in their
invitations to drink, and they even
exhibited . considerable Christian
forbearance when the Colonel sav
agely dissented with every one who
advanced any proposition, no mat
ter how incontrovertible.
liut unappreciated sympathy
grows decidedly tiresome to the
giver, and it was with a feeling of
relief that the boys saw the Colonel
stride out of the saloon, mount
Tipsie, and gallop furioiiily away.
lUdiing on horseback has always
been considered an excellent sort of
exercise, and fast riding is univer
sally admitted to be one of the most
healthful and delightful means of
exhileration in the world.
Hut when a man is so absorbed in
his exercise, that he will not stop to
speak to a friend, and when his ex-
mieration is so complete that he
turns his eyes from well-meaning
thumbs pointing significantly into
door-ways through which a man
han often passed while seeking brac
ing influences, it is but natural that
people should express some wonder.
The Colonel was well known at
Toddy Flat, Lone Hand, IJlazers,
Murderer's Jlar, and several other
villages through which he p:is-,ed,
and as no one hail been seen to pre
cede him, betting men were soon
ollering odds that the Colonel was
running away from somebody.
Strictly speaking, they were
wrong, but thoy won all the money
that had been staked against them,
for within half an hour's time there
passed over the same road an anx
ious looking individual, who reined
up in front of the principal saloon
of each plapo n.nd asked if the
Colonel had passed.
Had the gallant Colonel known
that he was followed, and by whom,
there would have been an extra
election held at the latter place
very shortly after, for the pursuer
was the Constable of Challenge
H1JJ, and for constables and all olli
cers of tlio Jaw the Colonel iosscssed
hatred of unspeakaljlo intensity.
On galloped the Colonel, follow
ing the stage road, which threaded
the old mining camp on Duck
Crockj hut suddenly he turned ab
ruptly out of tho road, and urged
his horse through the pines and
bushes, which grew thickly by Jthe
road, wllilo the constable galloped
rapidly 011 tq tlio iiext camp.
There seemed to be no path through
the thicket into which the Colonel
had turned, but Tipsie walked be
tween the trees and shrubs as if they
were the familiar objects of hprown
Suddenly a voice from the bushes
"Business that's what," roplicd
"It's thno," replied thevoice,and
its owner a bearded sjx-footcr
emerged from the bushes and stroked
Tipsie's nose with the freedom of an
old acquaintance. " "We ain't had a
nip since last night, aud thcr aint a
a cracker or a handful of flour In the
shanty. The old gal go back on
"Yes," replied tho Colonel, rue
fully, "lo.it ev'ry blasted race.
'Twasn't her fault, bless her, she
done her level best. Ev'ry body
"You bet," said the man. "All
ben a pray.in' for yer to come up
with the rocks, aij' somethin' with
more color than spring water. Come
The man led the way and Tipsie
aud the Colonel followed, and the
trio suddenly found themselves bo-
fore a small log hut, in front of
which sat three solemn, disconsolate
individuals, who looked appealingly
at the Colonel.
"Mac'll tell yer how 'twas, fel
ler's," said the Colonel meekly,
"while I picket the mare."
Tho Colonel was absent but a very
few moments, but when he returned
eaoh of the four were attired in
pistols and knife, while Mac was
distributing some dominoes made
from a rather dirty flour bag.
" 'Taint so late ez all that, Is it ?"
inquired the Colonel.
"Better be an hour ahead than
miss it this 'ere night," said one of
the four. "I ain't been so thirsty
since I come 'round the Horn, in
'50, an' we run short of water.
Somebody'll git hurt, if the' ain't
any bitters "ofcthe old concern they
will, or my name ain't Perkins."
"Don't count on yours cuienens
fore they're hatched, Perky," said
ono of the party, as he adjusted the
domino under" the rim of his hat.
"S'iMtejn' ther' shhd be too many fur
"Stiddy, stiddy, Cranks J" re
monstrated the Colonel. "Nobody
ever gits along ef they 'low 'em
selves to be skeered."
"Fact," ohlmed in tho smallest
and thinnest man of thp party.
"The Bible says something mighty
hot 'bout that. Idisremember ex
actly how it goes; but I've heerd
Parson Buzzy, down in Maine,
preacl!a rippln' old sermon many a
time. The old man never thort
what a comfort them sermons wus
a goin' to be to a road agent, though.
That time we stopped Slim Mike's
stage, an he didn't hev no more
manners than to draw on me, them
sermons wuz a perfect blessin' to
me the thought of 'em cleared my
head as quick as a cocktail. An"
"I don't want to dispute Logrol
ler's pious strain,' ' interrupted the
Colonel; "but ez its Old Black that's
a drivin' to-day, instid of Slim Miko
an' ez Old Black oilers makes his
time, hadn't wo better vamose?"
The door of the shanty was hasti
ly closed and the men filed through
the thicket, until near the road,
when they marched rapidly on in
parallel lines with it After about
half an hour, Perkins, who was
leading, halted, and wiped his per
piring brow with his shirt sleeve.
"Fur enough from home now,"
said he. "Taint no use bein' a gen
tlemen ef ver have to work too
"Safe enough, I reckon," replied
the Colonel. "Well do tho usual;
I'll halt 'em. Logroller tend to the
driver, Crank take the boot, an'
Mack an' Perk takes right and left.
An' I know it's tough but consid
erin' how everla9tin', eternally hard
up we are. I reckon we'll have to
ask contributions from the ladies,
too, if tiler's any aboard eh, boys?"
"Beckon so," replied Logroller,
with a chuckle that seemed
to inspire oven his black domino
with a merry twinkle or two.
"What's the ue ov women's right's
ef they don't ever have a chance ov
exerciin' em? Hevin' their purses
IxHTowed 'ud show em the hull doc
trine in a bran uew light."
"They're treacherous critters,
women is," remarked Cranks;
"some of em might put a knife into
a feller while he wuz 'pologizin'."
"Ef you're afeared ov em," said
Perkins, "you ken go back an' clear
up the shanty."
"Reminds me ov what the Bible
sez," said Logroller; " ther's a lion
on the trail; I'll be chewed up, sez
the lazy galoot, or words to that ef
fect." "Come, come, boys," interposed
Colonel, "don't mix religion an' biz-ue.-vs.
They don't mix no more than
Hello, thar's the crack of old
Black's whip ! Pick your bushes
quick ! All jump when I whistle!"
Each man secreted himself near
the roadside. The stage came
swinging along handsomely; those
inside were laughing heartily about
something, aud Old Black was just
giving a delicate touch to the flank
of the oil" leader, when the Colonel
gave a shrill, quick whistle, and live
men sprang into the road.
The horses stopped as suddenly as
if it were a matter of commou oc
currence. Old Black dropped the
reins, crossed his leg and stared
into the sky, and the passengers all
put out their heads with a rapidity
equaled only by that with which
they withdrew them, as they saw
the dominoes and revolvers of the
"Seems to be something the mat
ter, gentlemen," said the Colonel,
blandly; as he opened the door.
"Won't you please get out? Don't
trouble yourself to draw, 'cos un
friend here's got his weapon cocked,
an' his lingers is rather nervous.
Ain't got a handkerchief, hev yer ?"
asked he of the first passenger who
descended from the stage. "Hey ?
Well, now that's lucky. Just put
yer hands behind you, please so
that's It. And the unfortunate
man was securely bound in an in
stant. The remaining passengers were
treated with similar courtesy, and
the Colonel and his friends exam
ined the pockets of the captives.
Old Black remained unmolested, for
who ever heard of a stage driver
having money ?
"Boys," said the Colonel, calling
his brother agents aside, and com
paring receipts, "'tain't much of a
haul ; but there's one woman, an'
she's old enough to be a feller's
grandmother. Better let her alone,
"Like enough she'll pan out
more'n all the rest of the stage put
together." growled Cranks, care
fully testing the thickness of the
cjiso of a gold watch. "Jest like
tho low-lived deceitfulness of some
folks, to hire an old woman to carry
their money, so it'd go safer. Mabbe
what she's got ain't nothin' to some
folks thet's got bosses that kin
win 'em money at races, but "
The Colonel abruptly ended the
conversation, and approaced the
stage. He was very chivalrous, but
Cranks' sarcastic reference to Tipsie
needed avenging, and as he could
not consistently with business ar
rangements put an end to Cranks,
the old lady would have to suffer.
"I beg your parding, ma'am,"
said the Colonel, raising his hat
politely with one hand while he
opened tho coach-door with tho
other, "but we're taking up a collec
tion for some deserving object. We
wuz a gqin to niako tho gentlemen
fork over the hull amount, but, ez
they hain't got enough, and we'll
hev to bother you."
Tho old lady trembled, felt for
ner pocket-book, and raised her
veil. The Colonel looked Into her
face, slammetl the stage-door, and
sitting down on the hub of one of
tho wheels, stared vacantly Into

The continued fair weather keeps
trade still rushing, and our whole
sale houses busy fillling and ship
ping the many and large orders
now on hand and constantly arriv
ing even day, both in the lines of
dry goods and groceries, and also in
hardware, in which last line the
shipments are very heavy.
The receipts and shipments of
goods have, for the past few days,
been larger in all lines of trade than
at any time previous this spring,
and the pleased expression on the
the face of our merchants speaks
well for the style and
amount of business they are
doing, and also for the healthy con
dition of our State, financially. Tho
money market is decidedly easy,
and loans readily negotiated at a
low rate of interest.
There are no noticeable changes in
our markets since yesterday.
