He let me pass, and I tramped up the street until I found the one livery stable. Here, again, my fool reputation had quite evidently outrun ine. The man had idle horses, "plenty of them, as I couldn't help seeing, but I couldn't hire one for love or money. When It came right down to the pinch, he wouldn't even sell me one. By this time I was in a hot sweat of impatience to be on my way; to miles before bridge that twenty-on- e the elusive clue if it were the clue-c- ould once more dodge me and vanish into thin air. In that frame of mind I told the cautious" liveryman, in gentle phrase, what I thought of him and his kind, and hurried down to the railroad, hoping to be able to catch an train of some kind, any kind, whose crew could be bribed or cajoled into carrying me to Atropia. It was just as I was about to inquire of the telegraph operator what the chances were that the great temptation rose up and slapped me In the face. Up the grade from the westward car, carrying two d a tiuy, men, came spinning along. I recog nized it at once as a carrdrlven by a small gasoline engine; an evolution of the old .velocipede car, and used by foot and and other railroad men for making quick trips over short distances. In half a minute the little car rattled up to the station and made a quick stop, the two men setting the brakes and hopping off to dodge into litthe telegraph office. They left-th- e engine running at tle idling speed, and In a flash I saw my chance. Of course, If I should steal the car, I'd be caught and arrested ana hauled off somewhere to be tried and fined; but before any of these untoward things could happen, I should have settled that biting question of the ownership of the piebald pony and dog. the harlequin-faceWith a quick glance over my shoulder to make sure that the coast was still clear, I slipped Into the driving-sea- t, jerked the throttle open and released the clutch, praying fervently that the switches might be set right for me at the upper end of the Angels yard.

It may be Identified by the presence nearby of a d girl, a piebald horse, and a dog with a split face, half black and half white. Stanford at first regards the bequest as a joke, but after consideration sets out to find his legacy. CHAPTER II. On his way to Denver, the city nearest the meridian described In his grandfather's will, Stanford hears from a fellow traveler a story having to x do with a flooded mine. CHAPTER III. Thinking things over, lie begins to imagine there may be something in his grandfather's bequest worth while, his idea finally centering on the possibility of a mine, as a "safe repository." Recalling the narrative on the train, he ascertains that his fellow traveler was a mining engineer, Charles Bullerton. BuIIerlon refuses him information, but from other sources Broughton learns enough to make him proceed to Placerville, In the Red desert. brown-haireblue-eye- CHAPTER IV. CHAPTER I.

To my chagrin, the railroad ticket offices in Denver didn't know any such place as Placerville In the Red desert region, which was then, as now, traversed only by one railroad. The single "Placerville" they had listed was a station not far from Tellurlde, In quite another part of the state. Nor could the Mining exchange gentleman help me. However, he suggested that " If I could find some old resident was the word he used) whose memory reached back a ways, there might be something doing. n "Steer me," I begged; "I'm a and a total stranger in Den("old-timerhalf-orpha- tered Half to Himself. "a "5bTe4)odk drawn HAIL In Field. One FIRE In Barn That settled It with a vengeance, you'd say. And yet it didn't. It merely proved that Mr. Oharles Bullerton had acquired a sudden excess of caution, and was probably cussing himself plentifully for having been too with a perfect stranger la a Pullman smoker. He had answered my wire with a name that meant just as much or as little as if he'd said "Alexander the Great," and that was precisely the amount of Information he had Intended to convey. "Whether or not Bullerton's memorandum agreement with my grandfather would be binding upon me as Grandfather Jasper's heir, was a question for the courts to decide. But one iking was certain that is, granting all the assumptions ; If he should find the taine and go to work on his unwater-ip- g scheme, he would have a grip on things that might be handsomely troublesome to shake loose. After I had argued It out thus far the next step suggested Itself In a jiffy. I must have a talk with the cautious Mr. Bullerton, telling him who I was, and perhaps giving him a chance to join forces with me In the search, if It should prove to be my grandfather's mine that he was looking for. Grabbing this impulse by the neck, so to speak, I took the first train for Cripple Creek. The next morning, when I made inquiry, I found that Bullerton had left town, though where he had gone the bank folks couldn't say. I had gone into the chase more than half for the sheer fun of it; pretty much as the dog runs after the stick you've flung Into the bushes, and which he hasn't much hope of finding. But now it was appealing to me as more of a man's job. There was a legacy ; and however valueless it might be in Its present condition, it had once been worth nearly half a million and might be again. And a is a whole lot of money, when you come to consider it. From what little the bank folks told me it appeared that Bullerton was loose-tongue- d heart-to-heart half-millio- n fairly well known in Cripple Creek and yie region roundabout. Therefore, somebody in the near vicinity must know more than I had as yet been able to lenrn about the manner of his disappearance and his probable destination. 'My job was to find the somebody. About the time 1 thought I had exhausted all the combinations, I found the one particular Bullerton friend I was hunting lor. wis name, as l recall it, was Hilton, or something like that, and he was the superintendent of undertaking dea big drainage-tunne- l signed to unwater n lot of flooded mines on the hills above the tunnel site. "I can give you a little information, but not much," was his answer to my Inquiry. "Bullerton Is bughouse on the subject of a lost mine not an unusual disease In any mining country and he has gone to hunt for It. He has a sketch map of the location, but nothing to tie It to. I didn't ask him where the location was or rather, where he thought It wag." "Then, of coursel you have no Jdea where his hunt was. to begin?-- I threw in. "Only a guess. In our talk, he asked me If I knew anything about a place called Placervlllet in the Red desert; what sort of a town It was, and If a man could outfit there for a prospecting trip. I took it from this that he might be heading for Placerville, though he didn't say that he was." Ac uniiM Imnjrlnp this wnt onrmnrVi for me. The next morning T was back In Denver, figuring out the quickest way to get to Placerville in the Ited desert. I hoped Bullerton was on the true scent, but was mlghtlly.afraid he wasn't In. which case I, too, would go Jb&autlfully astray. But If he should happen to he on the right track, then I must beat him to the goal. True, he was that had a map to guide hlm,-an- d much better off than, I was.

Red Desert folk that I was anyhfng but an escaped lunatic. After the. breathing spell I kept on up the valley, heading away from tlie setting sun, and feeling certain that, sooner or later, I must come out somewhere in the neighborhood of Atropla. Two hours later I came Into a sort of an excuse for a road. Being pretty well winded by the stiff climb out of the canyon ravine, I sat down at the roadside to rest a bit and to decide which way I should go, to the right or to the left. Just as I was making up my mind I heard a patter of. feet and a dog barked. A moment later I could see the beast, Indistinctly. He had been coming up the road .and had stopped at the sight or scent of me. Since a dog argued the proximity of a human being, I called coaxlng-ly- : "Here, Towser here come on, old fellow that's a boy !" and the curious thing about It Is that he did It, running up a little way and stopping, and Anally coming to squat before me and to lift a paw for me to shake. I jollied him a bit and let him nose me to his heart's content. Then suddenly, as if he had discovered a long-lomaster, he broke away and began to leap and dance around me. barking a furious and hilarious welcome. In the midst of this hubbub I heard and the squeaking of saddle leather, and the dog's owner rode up. At first I thought the dimly outlined Stetson-hattefigure in the saddle was that of a boy. But It was a woman's voice, and a mighty pleasant one, that called to the dog: "Down, Barney, and behave yourself what s the matter with you, sir!" dog-ownist " Senator Watson's Charges.

"I shall be most delighted-r-t- o walk," I hastened to say. "Straight on up the road, then," she directed. We had traversed possibly haIf of the promised mile In plodding silence when we came to a place where the grade was so steep that it cut what was left of my wind to the small end of nothing. "Stop a minute and get your breath," said ihe pony's rider; and when I had halted : "You are not used to these high altitudes, are you?" "N-nso that any one would remark It," I gasped. "How high up are we?" "About five thousand feet. The mine Is exactly five thousanad three hundred, I believe." There it was, you see : THE MINE "Pardon me," I blurted out; "but would you mind telling me if your eyes are blue?"

"Daddy, here is a man I found down at the head of Antelope gulch; he had lost his way, so I brought him home with me," was the simple manner in which she launched me; and I found myself shaking hands with an elderly man who looked as If he might be a farmer, or a miner, or something of that nature you will know what I mean flannel shirt, trousers tucked Into boots, whiskers all over his face, an eye as, mild as u collie dog's.

She wasn't mtiful In any showgirl meaning of the word; she was something far better piquant, charming. A round little face, to a tint as delicious as the blush in the heart of an a jolly enough to bebit of a nose, speak a healthy sense of humor, a mouth neither too large nor too small upheld by a firm, round chin, and the chin upheld by an extra firm little jaw. As she had admitted, her eyes were blue the blue that' shades into violet wide apart and they were well-seand perfectly fearless; the kind of eyes fit to match the straight-linebrows that usually go with them. I sat before the cheerful blaze, chuckling quietly to myself over the mad adventures of the day and their highly romantic, not to say miraculous, outcome. Beyond all manner of doubt I had stumbled upon the three talismans of Cousin Percy's cryptic letter. By the most marvelous of accidents I had discovered the girl; the horse and the dog; and, if the remainder of Percy's letter were to be taken at Its face value, I should now be in touch with my legacy. As to the character of that legacy, there could be no further question. Grandfather Jasper had left me a mine; and I was fully prepared to find It the drowned mine of Bullerton's story. What I might be able to make of it was a matter which could well be postponed to another day. Just as I reached this postponing conclusion, the girl's father came in, drew up a chair on the opposite side of the hearth, and began to make me wel- way, saying come in a that they didn't have much company, and were always "master" glad to see a new face.
