Why Toarlats Crowd It.
Tourists are drawn to a hotel of this
stamp for various reasons. Those who
travel merely for appearance, to say they
have "done" thta country or that. Invaria
bly select the hostelry which will show up
best In their dairies, the house which Is
notsd for Its exorbitant cbargea. Others
go on the principle that one might as well
die for sheep as a lamb, and while spend
ing be liberal enough to see all the Hons.
Others still there are who lovs luxury
for Its own sake. This class Includes the
English women who wear Impossible dowdy
frocks In the palm gsrdena after p. m.
and who demand tea when their smartly
dressed neighbors- are Indulging In cock
tails or champagne." Artists, writers, mu
sicians and actor who have sprung sud
denly Into' public notice go there because
It gives them a certain standing, social and
financial. Western men who are "spend
ers" by 'birth and often by the unexpected
accruing of riches, go there to see their
money melt like Ice in dog days.
One can "burn money" here without ap
pearing vulgar, if he so desires, or he can
be stamped as an ''easy one" from his first

most liberal with "tips" are said to be the
western men of our own country; the least
generous In proportion to their Importance,
the foreign dignitaries, ambassadors, etc,
whose- itinerary Is arranged by their own
government or that of the United States.
The local clientele may be divided Into
four district classes. First are the regular
roomers and boarders, people who have
had the aame apartments for successive
winters and who pay for these as much
as would maintain a handsome ejtabllsh
ment. This class Includes several well
known widows with grown daughters and
acknowledge social standing who appar
ently Ilka the freedom from domestic re
sponslbllllty; single men who possess no
desirable club affiliations, but have enough
money to live luxuriously; men who feel
at home nowhere save In a hotel; women
who have reduced to a fine art the work

How a Wesaaa Artist Cllaobed,

took a top-floor room here and lived on
one meal a day that ahe might have the
prestige of receiving her mall and her call

thus Impress upon prospective customers
the fact that she had "arrived." How
much thla policy helped In the evolution of

On the other hand, If he desires to notify

Second, come the fashionable folk whose
town houses msy or may not be closed,
hut who drop in here In returning from
abroad and run In from their country homes
for a day or so In town. This Is known
generally as the town and country trade,
and here Is where the hotel manager loses
money, rather than on hla transient cus
tom. Certain names, wsll known In soclsty
t home and abroad, are Invaluable on his
register. They draw the would-be social
element, with money to snend. but lust
lacking certain qualities which alone can
carry them into the Inner circle where
they would be. Now It the owner of one

for the transfer of bis sccount and occa

carry away a certain number of satelll

erable social prestige owes the house tt.OOO.
A third class Includes those who have
the mean and who at regular intervals
dine at the hotel, and would think of a-olne
nowhere elae to give a supper party after
me siay. Tnsy are the people who enjoy
ins in an utterly uosensatlonal f..hi
but who like to watch the passing show
aooui once in so often.
The lea Walkers.
The fourth and last class are the people
eo walk oa Ice who are keeping up ap
pearances at any eost. The men wear even
ing clothes with shiny seams, the women
gowns that are trimmed with soiled lace or
last season's passementerie. It may be for
business ressoos or more mere love of show
that they make their appearance night after
thief, the man or woman who has no right
to enter that same car will have an lode
finable bravado or effrontery In carriage.
Duty of Detectives.
A peculiar duty of the regular detective
force Is following up ths servants wnen
the latter leave the hotel after the' day'
work Is over. In this way they ascertain
what aort of home life th "help" lead,
where they choose their companions, what
their amusements are, bow tbey spend
their money, and most Important of all
whether they live within their Income. A
surprisingly low percentage of thefts are
traced to servants, though It has often
been said that crooks get hotel position
with a keen eye to business. The house
detectives are supposed to keep In touch
with the municipal police department, to
know their rogue gallery and prevent any
possibility of a man or woman from the
under-world securing a position In the
hotel. The majority of thefta are traced to
guests, and In some Instance are due to

Th Power of Money-
Money will buy almost anything here. A
guest may telephone to any ehop and have
goods sent on approval, with a shop em
ploye In attendance. Without stepping from
the house a man may summon a vaiet wno
will clean, press and tailor his garments.
A barber will come to his room to ad
minister a shave. Stationery, cigars and
theater tlcketa will be sent up to him
from the main floor, and a maid will go
down and select the flower he would
and to his lady fair. It la told that a
western man of Influence was saved from
a most embarrassing position recently In
thia house. He was returning on a windy
night from the theater, wearing the only
evening suit and high silk hat be had with
him. In trying to catch his hat, which
was the victim of a sudden gust, he slipped
and fell and tore his suit, arriving at
the hotel a sartorial wreck, for an electric

Tho young officer, with the military eti
quette of West Folnt before him 'was fu
rious at being so familiarly snd rudely ad
dressed by an Inferior, and his vanity as
a man had also received a shock. He waa
engaged to a girl In tho east, and would
marry her ss soon as he had won the bars
of a first lieutenant, but It pleased and
flattered him to think that a woman out
there beyond civilization had been Caught
by his face and figure. He had not even
stopped to reflect that she was of another
race and already a wife. Not that he meant
anpthlng serious should come of It, but
that It flattered the egotism every young
man haa a fair share of.
If the words of tho blunt old sergeant
angered tho officer they also opened bis
yes, and there was less dallying and more
riding. The woman was quick to see that
he had been warned, and she exerted all

She really and truly fell in love with the
young pfflcer and suggested an elopement.
She would leave husband home all and
fly with him In any direction. Then It
wai that he began to realize the serious
ness of affairs and ho" falue of the ser
geant's advice. 'He-attempted by coolness
of demeanor tnd sensible arguments to
bring the woman back to reason, but ahe
was deaf to .his words snd blind to all
perils. There were those hanging about
the ranch who sent word of the matter to
old Castro, and when the messenger reached
him ho swore to be revenged.
The patrol had been detailed for a
month. The officer alone occupied quar
ters In the adobe ranch house, while the
men had their tents outside and not far
away. Three weeks passed. Castro's wife
had flirted, fallen In love and been scorned.
That Is, young Forbueh hsd rejected ths
Idea of an elopement and waa no longer
playing with Are, while Castro was on his
way home to wreak revenge on his foolish
If not faithless wife. Thus matters stood
one evening when the woman sat down In
her room, with rage and Jealousy gnaw
Ing at her heart the rage because she
had been scorned Jealousy because tbe
officer had admitted that he bad a sweet
heart to whom he would be faithful. She
knew that her conduct had been open to
censure and that word had gone to her
husband and she would be held to account.
She sat In the darkness for hours, brood

Into another room snd took a box from a
cupboard. In the box were four tarantulas
which had been caught and imprisoned to
be shipped away the horrid, hairy spiders
of the west, whose bite means death.
With the box under her arm she paused
at the officer's door and listened to bis
deep breathing for a time. Then she
pushed the door open and entered the
room, walking over tbe hard earth floor
with her bare feet. The moonlight
streamed In at the windows and showed
her tbe man sleeping heavily on his couch.
She crouched down beside him and llftd
the cover of the box. Then she softly
took one of his hands, oent her face to the

Duffle, C. division No. S.
1. On foreclosure of a first mortgage a
second mortgagee waa made a party and
served by publication only. She did not

her equity of redemption. On sale under
the decree there remained a surplus after
paying the costs and the amount found due
on the first mortgage. Held, following

the lien of the second mortgage waa trans

that the holder of the second mortgage
was entitled to such surplus, as against
the owner of the eaulty or redemption.
2. Under the facts above stated, while
the second mortgagee had a lien on the
surplus, her right to demand posseeMun
thereof did not accrue until her mortgage,
was foreclosed and the amount due thereon

where cars were suffered to stand upon the
