And then the cjb vernation of the
group in front of tho hotel at Ldir
Gulch drifted off on to other topiep,
while the two men of whom the colonel
Lad spoken proceeded on up the gnleh,
and turning to tho right utrnck the trail
leading up the eideu of Mount Hliavano.
A grent contract was apparent in the
looke" and manners of tho two c.en
working together in tho close compan
ionship which is implied in mining
regions by the term "partners."
Hobert Dayton was a tall, fair haired
young man i:h a frank, open conote
nance that mado him frieiuli even
among tho rough clans of men among
whom his lot was cist in a Colorado
mining camp. He bad been well edu
cated by a father who had loft him only
his education ai an inheritance, j
had become engaged to a pretty and
rich girl, but her father lost in a grain
speculation mot of the wealth that ho
had Bcii areJ, and Robert was ncwilling
tourgebcr to a speedy un-nago un
less ho could provide for l. r a home
with at least eomo of the comforts to
which she hod been accustomed. Ac
cordingly he had songht the silver land
of the West, in tin hopo of thero
obtaiuing more speedily snfHeiont
means to justify him in making her
whom Le loved his own. But his san
guine expectations had been disappoint
ed, and for seveial months he had
wandered from one mining camp to
another, till at last he arrived at Cedar
Gwlcb, weary and disheartened. He was
just in the mood to listen to a reckless
propoaal which he heard made in the
hotel ono day by &iudy Joe, to go on a
prospecting tour iu spito cf the noar
upprouc'j of snow. Robert did not
Lu-jw, und did not care much, who his
partial- was if ho could have another
ehauce, to labor for tho treasure which
ho was seekii.g. No ono knew tho real
name of Saudy Jje, aj he was called,
with tho fro'iueus inappropriutcness of
Western nicknames. He was a chert,
darl'.-eon.'plexioned, and chirk haired,
man, with uu uuenviiil le notoriety for
ipium'l.sociciH-s. This ill-assorted
c-iuplo proceeded on their expedition
wi'hout nintdi incident tho lirat day,
driviti;,' their "Jack's" up tho sUny trail
toward t'io summit of Mount Hiiavano,
that t-'wtrs L'fjh above tho surrouud
muuutains. On ibe- focind day of their journey,
when they had not yut reached the
place whero they hal to leave their
"Jae'ss" uii-l proceed nu foot, there
e.iaio down over the travelers a heavy
mint., nt nu?omruon on the mouutaius,
and noin lifter tho snow began to fall,
very lightly at first, and then more
heavily. The trail, whic'i had not
been verj diUiuct before, began to bo
almost hi Men from view. But tho sa
gacious animals seemed by eomo in
stil. i-t to pick out tho true path, and
the journey was ftill slowly cjutinued. of tho animals, however, wandered
a littlo from the path in the afternoon,
and stepping on a loose rock near the
td;;e of a Moep ravino, (dipped and
rolled over aud over down tho bank,
and was seen no more. A hearty curee
from the lips of Sandy Joe greeted thh
miiihap, but the journey was continued.
Tho path b,tui to grow steeper, and as
tho snow began to be piled up before
tho travelers it became almost impos
sible to go on, Joe, who was good-tempered
enough when everything went
well, began now to show signs of in
creasing ill-temper. He cursed and
swore ut the storm and snow, and then
would subside into moody silence. He
beat with merciless blows the heavily
laden 1 Jack," that struggled along on
its hard journey. It beeamo evident
at let'gth that tho men could not reach
the camp to whieh they were bound by
walking, an ! tho animal was unloaded,
nti'l it was decided the men should
t il; turns in riding till their destina
tion was readied. But livo or f-ix
miles now lay between the men and the
cluster of cabin) where they hoped to
find aid, but tho darkness wai already
cluing on, uu.l tho way was getting
almost impassible.
Joe ii.iiihte.l upon taking the first
t un in ri linp1, and Dayton allowed him
to mount. In this way about a mile
s pas-ed over, when Dayton, almost
i .eicotue with fatigue, called upon his
rniep.iniiin t'l dismount UKd exchange
1 .c '8. The way at that point was nar
row aud Ii d ulouside of a stoop incline
on tho mountain side. Joe, who was
ri lia,-; ahead, stopped when ho heard
Ins companion r ill, and allowed Day
iu to c iiio up to him, as if to allow
him to t.:ko the animal. Then sudden
ly bendinn; over. Jjo drew from his
belt a lour; knibi uud plunged it into
his partner's breast.
"There," said he, "as wo can't both
get through to the camp, I won't be tho
one that's b;fs behind," und then giving
pour B ib u push over the edge of the
bank, the assassin rjde na,
The wounded man rolled down the
stony side of tho mountain, tho kindly
snow shielding his body from sonio of
thctdiaip bowlders, till Iho giadnal
declivity down whijh lie was precipita
ted changed to a steep precipice, over
the edge of which he plunged onto a
level surface several feet below. Sluu
n: d as ho was by his wound and fall, ho
was ttill able, on looking around him,
to sco in the side of tho precipico a
largo opening like tha entrance of aeave,
and with tho instinct of self-preservation,
he dragged himself thither, and
succeeded in reaching this shelter from
tho storm before- he fainted away, over
eomo by the loss of blood.
Meanwhile, Sandy Joe straggled on
his way, and by using the animal as fur
as it would ge, and then leaving it in a
snow-drift while ho continued on foot,
Anally reached the littlo camp to which
ho was bound, llo told his tale of tho
great dangers ho had endured, but
without mentioning his companion, and
received sympathy and atteation from
the miuers.
The morning sun was just darting his
straight beams from the eastern tky
across the valley aud into the interior
of tho mountain cave when Bj1 Dayton
awoke from his sleep of exhaustion.
The storm had cleared from tho moun
tain, aud as the shining rays were cast
upon tho interior wall of tho civo, Bob,
lying with hiaeyoa just opened and too
weak to feel a disposition to rise, no
ticed gleams of light where some bright
snbhtance fl jcted tho sunlight. With
difficulty ho made his way oa his hands
and Knees toward one of these points of
light, and taking the glittering object
in his hands, found, with trembling de
light, that it was a bit of native wiresil
ver, suuh as is found sometimes even on
the surface over rich Colorado mines.
On further examination ho found rich
indications of tho same nature in va-
1 rions parts of the cave; aud ho wns soou
aware that ho had roado one of those
discoveries which incito so uumv to feck
their fortunes in the mining grounds of
the West, and that are really to infre
quent and exceptional. Tho atnbitiou
of his life was accomplished, and he
might now, he felt, make a homo as rich
and pleasant as bo had imagined to
which to tuko the one ho loved. But
while in tho Crst joy of his discovery ho
thus pleased himself with i,rateful
images of the future, there came to him
a new thought of his present situation,
which had for the moment passed from
his mind.
"Alas," said lie, "tho willful fortune
that kept from mo tho riches that I de-t-ired
brings them to mo mw when life
itself senms doubtful, uud when I see no
way to safety, weak us I am and far from
my roseue. Mus'. I dio in the midst of
this now-found wealth ? " Jast us ho
was accupied with thes.) thoughts he
heard a noise in a dark recess of the
cave, which ho had not yet explored,
and with a snort, Eomo animal that had
apparently been lying there, roso to its
feet and came towards the light. For a
moment Bob thought it might be ono of
tho few wild beasts which are occasion
ally found in tho mountains; but as it
advanced he saw,to his joy, that it was a
roun-colored horso,sneh an one us ho had
heard had been lost from C-'dar Gulch
on these very mouutaius, and the very
ono to which t'.d. Brown hud alluded
when he talked to tho loungers en tho
departure of tho mineis. Poor BoVs
heai t fairly leaped to his mouth at the
h'po of rescue presented by tho appear
ance f the horse, who hail apparently
wandered into tho cave to seek shelter
from tho fctorm, and mcst opportunely
presented ii?clf.
Bob took up and put in his pocket o
few specimens of tho rilver-bearing min
eral about him, uud leading tho animal to
the eutranco of the ciivo,succeeded ai'te.1
several efforts, in getting on its back.
Tho feeling of a rider on its back
brought tho horse to its habit of sub
jection, and almost without direction it
found its way back to the path, and
down the side of Mount Shavauo tovmd
Cedar Gulch.
Tho horrors of that journey to tho
rider it would bo hard to tell. His
wound, from which the bloud bad c:asod
to flow, began to bleed ag iiu somewhat,
and wan with difficulty staunched. Tho
weak man could scarcely ictain his
poti'.ion on the horse's back, but wiih a
bravo determination aud strong will he
ki-pt his snat while t!iu tag.ieiom animal
dot-ended the trail.
'Iho evening had just set in when Bj'o
tiimbbd fai itiug from tho horse in front
of the (Iran I hob 1. Tho rough but kiud
heaited miin'is took liim up and cared
for him till by skill aud patiencoho was
again restored to strength. Sandy Joe,
in tho distant camp, heard of his vie
tim's escjpo, and qnickly departed from
that part of theeouutry, and was after
ward killed in a light wit'.i a f. How-out
law. Bob recovered from his wound,
and before tho winter snow bad melted
from tho mountains ho hid staked out
for himself a claim called "Tho Lizzie
Claim," and including tho cave whero
that memoiable night iu his hittoty was
pas-sod. He is counted u rich mun in
tho possession of this mine, now famous
for its mineral wealth, but ho considers
himself far richer in the lovo of tho
woman now his bride, and tho two
bright-eyed children growing up in the
circle of home.
A Tale or Ibijnlly.
M. Fbri.v.i Pharaon tvlls an amusing
aneednto about King Humbert of Italy,
who is as fond of hbootiug us was his
royal father, Victor F.mmnnuel. From
timo to time King Humbert, oblivious
of all royal customs uud court etiquette,
separates himself from, his suite, and
guu iu hand goes out alone in search of
game, accompanied by his two favorite
dogs. During ono of his excursions he
was met by a peasant, who looked on
with admiration at the havoc, the king
had mado or. oug a covey of partridges
no did not know tho mona-eh, and see
ing him in tho dress of an ordinary
sportsman could not recognize him. Ho
went np to him, complimenting him on
his skill with his gun, and then told
him that if he would come to his farm
on the following morning at daybreak
and kill a fox which Lad mado several
raids on his hen roost, ho would not
mind giving him n couple of francs for
his trouble.
King Humbert kept tho appointmeut,
and was fortunato enough to kill tho
fox. The delighted peasant welcomed
him on his return, called his wife and
children out, and insisted on the king
sharing their breakfast with them. At
tho end of tho repast the peasant took
leave of his visitor, pressing a two frano
piece in bis hand, wnich the king tossed
np in the bir and caught, declaring it
was the lirat money he had ever earned.
Two days afterward the peasant was
surprised to seo an officer in uniform
ride np in an open carriage with presents
from tha king for his wife and children,
no then learned to whom he owed his
obligation, and was confused at the
familiar manner in which he had hob
nobbed with royalty.

Nervousness is nervous weuknefs.
The piiueipul sign of a feeble nervous
organization is an exoestivo degreo of ir
ritability of ono or more of the organs
cf the body. If the nervous system be
weak, the organs to which tho nerves
are distributed will also bo weak, and a
weak organ is always au irritable oue.
It takes very littlo to throw such uu
organ out of is orderly course of action.
Some slight cause or other acting on
a "nervous" bruin creates euch a degree
of irritability that its possessor feels as
if ho would like to "jump out of his
skin," or he may be thrown into a
paroxysm of intenso emotional disturb
ance, or u sick headache, an nttuck of
hysteria, or even a more sovero disorder
may result. A "nervous" eye or ear is
annoyed by unusual or president lights
or souuds; a "nervous" heart palpitates
or flutters after i light mental or bodily
txertion; a"nervous' stomach is irritated
by food which a healthy buby could
easily digest, aud tho condition known
as "norvous dyspepsia" is induced; and
a "nervous" spine, to specify no further,
causes derangements of nearly all tho
organs of tha body. To cure theso va,
nons disorders is often difficult and
sometimes impossible. To prevent
tl e n even in persons predisposed to
nervousness is comparatively an easy

How is this to be doue?
1st. The first prescription is an uiu
plo supply of pure, fresh and cool uir.
The nerves will always be weak if tho
greaterpurt oftho dayand night bepussed
in close, ill-ventiluled and over- heated
apartments. Tho neives moro than the
lest of tho body, to be properly nour
ished, require u full supply of oxygen.
They will not endure vitiated air,
whether from sewers, gas-lights, sub
terranean furnaces or the individual's
own person, without making an ener
getic protest.
A gas-burner consuming four cubic
feet of gas per hour produces more car
bonic acid in a given timo than is
evolved from tho respiration of eight
adult human beings. Bear this in mind,
you who suffer from nervousness, that
when you have shut yourselves v.p in
your rooms and lighted u.iargand burn
er (which consumes about twelve cubit
feet of gus per hour) you are to all in
tents aud purposes immured with twenty-three
other persons, all taking oxy
gen fivm the atmosphere. It is a won

tho depraved air your nerves thotild

hands tremble, and that your daughter's

An overheated apartment uljvays en
ervates its occupants. It is no uncom
mon thing to find rooim heated in win
tor by an underground furnace up to
nimty degiees. Fights and murders
are moro numerous in hot than in cold
weather, aud tho artificially heated air
that rushes into our rooms, deprived as
it is of is natural moisturo by tho Ink
ing it has undergone, h even more pro
ductive of vicious passions. It U no
surprising circumstance, therefore, to
find the women, who swelter nil day in
such a temperature and adds to it ut
night by superfluous bed-clothing,
cross and disagreeablo from littlo every
day troubles that would scarely ruffle
her temper if she kept her rooms at sixty
five degiees and opened tho windows
every now and then.
21. Kit plenty of well-cooked and
nourishing food. The nerves cannot be
kept healthy on slops. Gruols.panadas,
teas arc well enough in their way, but
tho nerves reqniro for their proper
nourishment undiluted animul and veg
etable food; as a rule the former should
predominate. Meat-caters are rarely
troubled with nervousness. Americans
eat moro vegetables than any other
well-to-do people, and they are proba
bly tho most "nervous" nation on the
face of the carlh.
3d. Take sufficient physical exercise
iu the open air. When you feel irrita
ble, tremulous, fretful, Udge.ty, and un
able to concentrate your thoughts on
the veriest trillo, take a long walk, or
split half a cord of wood. Even the
extreme nervousness of lunatics is best
quieted by bodily labor. The hoaiu'i

.An old f. inier at Guelph, Canada,
ri c'titly made a curious will, which is
substantially as follows: The sou works
the farm till his stepmother's death, ut
the cud of which timo he commences
paying .instalments on 8:1,000 to the
rest of tho family at a yearly rate of 850
a year, and when he gets all paid off he
will get the farm in his own possession.
It will bo seen that after the stepmoth
er's death i; will be sixty years before
the son gels the farm, and as the woman
is yi t iu the prime of life and healthy,
it is calculated that she may live
another forty years The son is now
thirty years of age, and when ho can
claim the farm, by his reckoning he
will bo KSO years old.

One day the editor was visited by a
committee of villagers to urge upon
him some argument in favor of a new
town pump. Being an amiable man, al
though it was just his busiest hoar, he
asked them to bo seated until he had
finished an article he was writing on
tho application of ensilago to green
picket fences, Whilo waiting, they all
began to talk to each other at the vory
pitch of their voices, until the distraoted
editor could stand it no longer, when,
wheeling round in his chair, he re
marked, with an expression sweetly ut
ter: "You'd obligo me, gentlemen, by
conducting your conversation in a lower
tone. There's a man siok with small
pox in the next room and yon might
disturb hira." As he gathered np the
hats, canes and umbrellas that were
left by the committoo in their eager
bolt for the fresh air, he said to him
self, quietly : " I reckon I'm going to
be a success in journalism."
