So I told him how to begin, and he fell to work ; but in just in the Loft With You Quick, Stannie!" He Yipped at Me. in other words, to obliterate swiftly and completely all signs of the presence of a third member of the family. In a minute or so there was a gruff hall from somebody outdoors and Daddy got up to gp and look out. "Why, hello, Ike, you old geezer!" he called. "What under the shinln' sun fetches you up on old Cinnabar this early in the mornin'?- 'Light down and come in; you're just in the, nick o' time for breakfast." While I was cudgeling my brain In a vain effort to recall what, if any, memory association there should be awakened in me by the mention of an "Ike" person, this particular Isaac presented himself at the cabin door and clumped In with the d walk of a man who has ridden horseback far and hard. I knew then why I should have been able to dig that memory association. This was Mr. Isaac Beasley, my Angelic friend of the overgrown silver star and tlie unshaven stiff-legge- "Up a few minutes his awkwardness with the tools gave me a fit of the willies.

It seemed to be " very highly necessary that I should acquainted with the precise ingredients of that kettle of fish. But my luck had exhausted Itself. In a few minutes there was a stir in the living-roobelow, aud I heard Daddy Twombly shoveling up ashes to cover the fire. That meant goodnight; and though I continued to listen, there were no more sounds, and I was finally obliged to go to sleep, leaving the fish- -- ,'Iier low !::!

Of course, I bunged my soft hands ail up, and got as dirty as a pig,, and all that; but that 'first forenoon is written down in my life as one of the most enjoyable I've ever known. And when Daddy Hiram called the noon halt, and we went across to the cabin to wash up for dinner, I was hungry. I think that forenoon measured about the only useful work I'd ever done'; and the afternoon made it a full day. Say, people it was great! For the first time in an y life I had a job idle, with a concrete object in view, and a keen ambition to see it through. I was thirstily eager to get that machinery in shape and to start thoe old and this in spite of Daddy Hiram's repeated assurances that it "wouldn't do no good g During a interval of weeks a number of things had two happened.

I hoped nine o'clock, and climbed, my ladder! indicator weight I had rigged up stood stock still; never moved the width of one of the pencil marks I had drawn on its gaxTge board. By this time my stubbornness was yielding something to the still more stubborn fact. If all this pumping hadn't even started the flood toward Its diminution, truly all the waters under the earth must be backing the unfailing well of that drowned shaft. Toward the last I think we kept on more from force of habit than anything else, but at the end of the week I gave In and consented to let the fires die down, though It was like pulling teeth to do it.

We thrashed It out that evening, the three of us before the living room fire, after Daddy and I had finally stopped the pumps and let the steam run down.

"No skin off of me?" I yelped, with a sort of wild laugh.

I remembered afterward that I had got just that far to the naming of d Bullerton when Barney, the collie, got up from ids corner of the hearth, stalked to the door and began to growl. The next minute we heard a horse's and Daddy Hiram rose, pushed the dog aside and opened the door. Then .Teanie and I, still sitting before the fire, heard him say gruffly: "Well, hello, Charley Bullerton! What in Sam Hill are you doln' up in this neck o' woods?" I turned to look at Jeanie and missed. In the moment when I had glanced aside she had vanished. When Bullerton came in, which was after Daddy Hiram had lighted the lantern and shown him where to put his horse, he didn't seem half as much surprised to find me sitting before the Twombly house fire as I thought he might have been. "Well, well! look who's here!" he bantered. "How are you, Broughtou? Tills old world isn't so Infernally big as it mjght be, after all, is it? Who would have thought that our next meeting would be In such an corner of the universe as this I hope you've been well and chipper, all these weeks." I said what I was obliged to, and wasn't any too confoundedly cordial about it, either, I guess. Bullerton drew up a chair and began to talk, much as if we'd invited him to, g year in South about his heart-breakinpie-facesh-r-r- -, drowned mines while I was knocking about in the Cripple Creek district trying to trace Bullerton. Particular-li rememnerea my tanc with union, the man who had finally put me upon what had proved to be the right track in the tracing job. He had talked quite freely. Sometimes the flood was only the tapping of an underground stream, as when one digs a well; In other cases and these were most common In the Cripple Creek region the source of the flood would be found in a burled lake or reservoir, large or not so large, as the luck might have it. If the source were a lake so Hilton had said there was little use In trying to pump the mine dry. Mulling over these discouraging bits of information, I was naturally led back to the Pullman smoking-rootalk with Bullerton. I remembered, with a sharp little flick of the memory whip, that he had given an expert opinion, which, as it seemed, he had backed up a year earlier with a thousand dollars of real money the deposit in the Omaha bank made to cover my grandfather's bargain binder. What he had said was, "I'm reasonably certain that I discovered a way in which that mine can be drained at comparatively small expense." Had he really discovered a way? and with no better data than a study of the maps? Staring down at the black pool which Daddy and I hadn't been able to lower by so much as a traction of an "Inch In a week's pumping, I doubted It. I was stumbling out toward the engine room witli my head down and my hands in my pockets when I heard footsteps coming from the direction of the cabin beyond the dump. Looking out, I saw Bullerton sauntering over Though 1 toward the shaft-housknew that some sort of a wrangle with him was Inevitable, I was perfectly willing to postpone it, so I edged into the blacksmith shop and sat down on the anvil, hoping he might miss me and go away. But there was nothing ' coming to me on that bet. i "I saw your lead when you left the house," lie began, after he had found me and had dusted off an empty dynamite box for a beat. "Don't you think jou've played it rather low down o nie?" "How so?" "By taking in my story of this mine when I told it to you without giving me a hint that you were the person most deeply interested since my old gentleman was your grandfather." "It didn't strike me that way, and it doesn't yet," I shot back. "I notice you were mighty careful nut to tell me the name of your old gentleman or rather, I should bay, you lied about it when I wired you." "An ordinary business precaution," he chuckled.

He was present at the breakfast table, as large as life and twice as talkative. I made my escape from the cabin as soon as I could and tramped over to the mine.

"See he"re, Bullerton," I said, and I suppose I stuck out my jaw at him as people say I do when I'm beginning to feel ugly, "there are limits, and I'll pay you the compliment of assuming that you are not quite a born fool. We are going to leave Miss Twombly out of It; completely and absolutely out of It." "You may; but 1 shan't," he grinned back at me. "In point of fact, my dear fellow, now that I "come to think of it. you'll have to leave her out" may say or "Not for, anything do, or leave unsaid or undone." "Yes, you will; and for something that I may say. And I guess this is as good a time as any to mention it. Have you forgotten that you have advertised yourself in this corner of the world rather successfully as one of two things: a pretty dangerous sort of lunatic, or a criminal? As a matter of fact, the railroad detectives have been looking high, low and level for you ever since you stole that Inspection motor at the Angels platform and got it smashed." "Twombly knows about that; and so does Miss Twombly," I cut in. "They wouldn't give you away, of course; in a-- certain sense you are Twombly's guest, and in another you're his employer. But you'll notice that neither of these restrictions apply to me. Now, perhaps, you can understand just why you are obliged, in ordinary prudence, to leave the girl out of it and why I am not so obliged." "Miss Twombly, herself, has the casting vote on that" is what I Hung at him. "She has already voted," he said coolly. Then: "You're not In the game.

I asked. "I know that old Mr. Dudley let, or partly let, a contract for the draining of the mine, to a man who was almost a total stranger to him." I saw how It was. Bullerton, always readier to talk than a stuck pig is to bleed, had been giving her his own version of things. But I let that part of It go. "Grandfather Jasper was laboring for the good of my souL He knew his 'medium,, as the artists say. He wanted to make me work something that nobody else has ever been able to do." "Don't you like to work?" "Why-e-I guess I'm like other folk in that respect. I don't mind working if I can pick my job and my company. I've been having a bully good time hammering around this old bunch of junk with your father. Or I was having one until Satan came also."

He laughed and threw back the lapel of. his coat to show me a regulan tion slung by a shoulder strap under his left arm.

He does not know the character of the property, but the grandfather's directions say that it is somewhere between the 105th and 110th degrees of longitude west from Greenwich, and the 35th and 40th degrees north latitude. When he finds it he will be able to identify it by the presence of a girl with brown hair and blue eyes, a small mole on her left shoulder, a piebald horse and a dog with a split face half black and half white. He is game and he starts to look for the combination. The troubles he has in locating it and the adventures and dangers through which he passes in securing possession of the property, also the romantic incidents in which the girl is a figure, make up this very fascinating narrative.

With a sort of forced calm I considered every beam and projecting timber where I might incautiously have left the wrench, and from which it might have jarred off to fall Into the gears. There was no such chance. I had used the wrench in reassembling the machinery, but now that I came to recall all the circumstances, I distinctly remembered having put it, together with the ottier tools, on the little work bench back of the engine. The alternative conclusion was, therefore, fairly inevitable. While I was tiring the furnaces, somebody and doubtless somebody who had been watching for the opportunity had taken advantage of the moment when my back was turned and had thrown the wrench into the gears. It was the final straw. There was only one person on the Cinnabar reservation who could have any motive for wrecking my machinery ; and while I was banking the fires and setting thingsin order for the night. I charted my course; as the navigators say. The dawn of auother day, I told myself, would schedule' the ultimate limit.
