He showed a certain hurt dignity. ' 'And I would not particularly mind the ride alone and on horseback, but to under- take'it with you—canyon not see that it is on yonr account that I dnre not try it?" "But if 1 am willing to risk it"— "But you do not know what the risk means,"he said very decidedly. "If yon should be compelled to spend the night iu the open air listening to the voices of the coyotes, I am sure yon would Maine me more severely for letting yon take such chances than you do now for refusing to go." 'I am not blaming you, but if Mr. and Mrs. Elleryhad met me would they not have driven back tonight?" Indeed they would have done nothing of the sort! They always stop over at Cameron's when they come down. The round trip is too muoh for one day." Edith sighed wearily, abandoning that hope. "But as yon are situated it seems rather—well, undesirable—that you should be called to entertain worn- it seems to me," she murmured, faltering embarrassedly. "lam afraid I ought not to have come." "I am sorry that it did not occur to me to explain at the outset that there are no women on the place, "he returned, with simple directness, a fire of sharp impatience in his eyes. "It was perhaps inexcusable in me to overlook it, but I have lived so long in the west that I had simply forgotten that a lady could feel herself unprotected and even perhaps m danger with a dozen men about her." "But I have not intimated anything of the sort," she cried, regarding him resentfully that he had dared to read her thought so clearly. "Of course I should prefer goiug on to the ranch, but since yon are unwilling to undertake that"— She bit her under lip vex- edly, hoping to goad him into tardy as- Bent. "Perhaps you would prefer to return to the depot," slackening the pace ol the horses, while he regarded her with ejtpsperating calm, his sunburned face flushing a shade darker than it had been before. "Yon could be sure of a chaperon there, of course, though the role might be a new one for good Mrs. Flan nigan." "Certainly not!" she cried sharply, inexpressibly nettled at the tone. '' Now that I am here I propose to stay—if am allowed." • "As a choice of evils?" smilini broadly. '' Well, I think yon are wisa' Edith was looking away in an offender dignity, and they rode down the las small bill in silence, the road leadini by the barn to the house. "I will oal Mr. Blythe, the manager, who is stand Ing in the door yonder," he remarked indifferently when they were near the barn. "He has charge of the house." She had been looking curiously at the group of men, rough of dress and in no case prepossessing of feature, grouped against the black background of that wide doorway. At Brown's call one of them came toward the team, furtively eying the stranger. Miss Ellery's ideal of the cowboy, somewhat shaken by the looks and bearing of her escort, seemed fairly restored in this individual, who was evidently of more common clay and painfully conscious of that fact in the presence of this smartly clothed young woman. "Let me introduce Mr. Blythe, Miss," Brown began, halting at the name, with a questioning glance. "My name is Ellery. I am Hugh Ellory's Bister," she said to the newcomer, with her most gracious smile, rather pitying the man's embarrassment and going on to explain about the miscarried telegram. "I wanted to hire a team to take me onto the K 0 ranch tonight, but Mr. Brown did not seem to think it would bo advisable," she concluded, with a lingering hopa that this gentleman might perhaps be inclined toward the furtherance of her wishes. No? hardly pay you tomakotho trip lenty of grub, such as it is.'' But Miss illery would have nothing. She had ad a lunch at Cheyenne. "Well, is lere anything else we can do for yon?" e urged, his glance ranging the room i anxious search for some further serv- ce. Brown had unstrapped the trunk nd brought an armful of wood for the ox behind the stove. "Of course if yon link of anything you'd like you'll speak fit. And what time will you be called n the morning, ma'am?" I would like to get started as early possible. Could we get away by 8. Plsb,eame, poultry, eto.

"And there's 110 need either. We've got room enough, Lord knows. Drive on to tho house, Brown, and we'll BOO what wo out do to make the lady comfortable." In some way bo attached himself to tho book of tho buokboard, whence ho presently sprang down to open a door of the house, with cordial, if somewhat awkward, hospitality. "Come right iu," he cried as Brown helped tho girl to tho ground. ' 'Brown, just bring iu tho lady's things. Hero, yon, Joe," goiug to the door and shouting in the direction of tho barn, "oomo over oud bold thoso homos. And I gneiss I'll just light up the flro.

' 'Good night" I hope you'll be comfortable," said Brown, halting anxiously on the door-, tep. "If the fire should get low or if •on should want anything, if you will ust come to the door and clap yonr lands, Mexican fashion, I shall be sure o hear you. And if yon should hear the logs prowling about in the night I hope •on won't let it make yon nervous. Nothing can possibly molest yon." Yon are very kind. Good night, and hank yon so much." The unaffected eagerness of these men to make her welcome and to contribute to her comfort all possible ways filled her with a sort of shame for the ungracious doubts which had assailed her. The novelty of ;he situation was even becoming pleas- mtly exciting. Brown had lighted a lamp upon the small table and drawn an easy chair invitingly beside it. The Ire in the corner stove was sending forth a crackling song of cheer, and the room began to wear an air that was [airly cozy and homelike. Left alone, with alert .curiosity, she went about examining everything in detail, relieved to find that looks and window fastenings were all secure. She happened, in her restless movement, to catch a glimpse of herself in the mirror above the dresser and stopped with a desultory interest that had nothing to do with vanity, idly surprised at the unaccustomed brightness of the dark brown eyes which now seemed almost black,'with a touch of pleased appreciation for the brilliant color borrowed from the winds, which had roughened the nut brown hair to a disorder only the more becoming. A whimsical questioning' sprang up in her eyes as she looked. 1 She wondered what measure of admiration this man Brown had given her, this horse trainer, whose orbit could not often have been crossed by women of her world. And yet she could not be sure. Her thoughts reverted to him in puzzled inquiry as she removed her hat and gloves. She was aroused from her musing by a knock at the door, which, when opened, revealed a grinning fellow whose glean white jacket told that he was the cook, even had not the tray be bore spoken more eloquently to that effect. "Mr. Brown thought yon might like a cup of tea, even if yon did not care for supper, miss," he said, moving the lamp aside to deposit bis burden upon the table. "Mrs. Cameron often likes a cup of tea iu hor room when she is down, and I just brought a little bread and cold beef and u bit of jelly to help the tea along like, and Mr. Brown sent you the magazines, thinking j -n might like something to road, and I'll just fetch you some fresh water, if yon please,'' snatching up a pitcher from tho washstaud and vanishing through the inner room. A low laugh broke from the girl's lips as sho looked ut that improvised tea table, whereon W«B provender irafltoiont for a conplo of hungry men, "Well, if one must be wrecked ou a desert island, one could hardly do bettor than this," she inurmurod, luxuriously inhaling the fragrance of tho tea, which, was persuasively appealing to a latent appetite. "As a desert island it could hardly be improved, after all—with thanks to my man Friday, whoso roal name is"—curiously reading tho penciled inscription ou the books, " 'Paul Brown'— Paul Brown, a breaker of horses, who writes bis name like a gentleman of education, who talks liko a gontleraau of education and wfcoso tiwto iu literature is evidently that of a gentleman of education. Really, Mr. Brown, of all the delightful features of thin desert island, I thiuk you are quite tbo moat mytiteri. ously iuterestiug." There wus it moment of now discomfiture the next morning when, the buok- board at tho door, Mien KUory, prettily expressing appreciation of the hospitality sho hud enjoyed, usked Mr. Blythe for her bill. "Bill!" bo repeated surprised)/, with a queer grin. "Well, really, Misty Kl- lory, I guess there ain't any bill ibis trip. Wo dou't generally charge our friends for a inonl of victuals in Wyoming. Being sort of on the outside edge of tbo world, BO to spouk, wo don't huvo much company, but such us comes along uro woleomo to •wlwt they get-— you bet." Tbo girl drew back, «)twoiug arouud voxodly. Although riT.ognivsiiig BJytbo us tbo actual roureseututlvo of tbo absent proprietor, uho yet instinctively turuoa to UrQwu us the one phlofly coi cwiiod iu lip}' euterluiuuumti was something that jarred tipon hot curiously in the growing sense of obligation to him. The most careful hostess could not have been more punctiliously mindful of the comfort of a favored guest than had been these rough men. The saine though tfnluess that had sent the luuch to her room the night before had spoken in tile hot water for her bath Which the cook hnd been inspired to bring to her door when he came to call her in the morning, and later, when he came to show her tho way to the dining room, where she breakfasted alone, it Was to find the table laid with all the luxury and daintiness which tho resources of the establishment permitted, not oven forgetting a bunch of fresh field flowers in a glass beside her plate. But, While fully appreciating each smallest attention, the more that they were all somewhat piqunntly spiced with unexpectedness, she had yet rather accepted everything as a matter of course, to be ,paid for in due form, having gathered 'that it was a part of the regular business of the plnce to provide entertainment for such travelers as happened that way. There seemed a suggestion almost humiliating in the manager's simple speech. She felt drawn down nearer tho level of these men that they had received her simply as a friend; that she had been really their guest. But this is preposterous I" she quickly protested. "I was a perfect stranger"— "Mr. Ellery's sister couldn't be considered a stranger at Cameron's ranch, tnd besides I don't see who you could lay anyhow, seeing that I ain't an- thorized to collect bills, while Mr. Cameron ain't here himself, don't yon seeT" "And I suppose that there la no ginger jar on the mantelpiece?" she exclaimed, smiling vexedly. "A which?" blurted the astonished ranchman, whose reading had evidently never wandered within the realms of fiction as far as the adventures of Mrs. Leeks and Mrs. Aleshine. "Why should you not leave it for your brother to settle with Mr. Cameron?" suggested^ Brown diplomatically. "They have so "many business dealings together that it would be easy for them to attend to it." And with this arrangement Miss Ellery was forced to be content, although still persuaded that this account would never reach any more substantial settlement than was expressed in her thanks. "I feel as if I hod not thanked him half enough, since he would let me give him nothing else," she remarked to Brown, glancing back as they were driving over the hill behind the house. "I am sure you have quite overwhelmed him," he returned, smiling broadly. "I hope, by tho way, that you have forgiven me for bringing yon to tho plnce?" "I am afraid it is yon who are not forgiving," her cheeks flushing rather uncomfortably. "I feel that I was so ungracious last night. I ought to apologize." "Oh, don't speak of it," with rather perfunctory courtesy. "I was so tired, and it was all so strange," she urged in extenuation. "I hardly know what I did expect, but it was all so lovely, after all. Everybody was so kind, and you especially, Mr. Brown. By tho way, I have not thanked yon for sending those magazines. It was so very thoughtful" "I was afraid you might have read them, but I happened to have nothing else." "You are fond of reading?" she observed tentatively. , "Of light reading—yes. I enjoy the magazines at odd moments. I have no time, oven if I bad tbo energy loft, for beavy literature." "You are very busy?" This as a question. "Generally time is not allowed to grow heavy on my bauds." "I am afraid I have taken you from some work this morning." This with polito regret, although it struck her with an odd souse of dismay that bo might havo sent somebody else to drive trie team, a contingency which she promptly admitted to herself she would not have liked. "Oh, tbisl" reddening slightly. "I know tho way so much better than the others that it WM best I should oorne." Then, as though bo would divert the subject from himself: "I judge that yon are interested in photography. You will find a flue field for snap shots at the K 0 ranch." ' 'You know the place?'' sbo exclaimed eagerly. "You have boon there?" "Yes; I have been there. It is rather a uioo country." "Nicer than this, I bopo," sho remarked, witb a somewhat cheapening glance at tbo landscape before thoiu. "No bettor raugo," smiling, with tbo eye of a cattleman, upon the v»st ftolds of rich grazing ahead.

If yon would liko some Wyoming land, Miss Ellery, you will presently be face to face with' a glorious opportunity." "1 had fancied that I might take up some land when I came west," she smilingly confessed. "My brother has taken up n good deal." "I suppose BO, " he answered rather dryly, yet smiling amusedly,-, "And will you take up a homestead of a desert claim?" "Oh, the latter, I think I That gives one the most acres, does it not? But I think the government must offer me something rather more inviting than this. I do not want quite such a desert.'' "And what do yon propose to do with yonr land when yon have discovered a location sufficiently picturesque?" "Ah, who knows?" she returned, smiling enigmatically. "I think I shall limply keep it to enjoy the sensation of richness." "I suppose it has not entered into your calculations that the possession might iftfolve anything like 1'embarras de riohesses?" "No; I had hardly thought of that," she absently admitted, adding after a moment, "Yon have not lived in Wyoming all yonr life, I suppose?" "I am not quite one of the aborigines," he replied after a perceptible instant of hesitation. "Have yon noticed that little bird?" he irrelevantly added, as though with no particular thought of changing the subject, indicating a tiny creature that was circling round and round tho team as they went, keeping ever with them. ' 'They are curi- ois little fellows, those buffalo birds, as they are called. They have a habit of following tho stock 'about the range, teeming to form attachments for particular horses and cattle, becoming regular satellites. It is amusing to watch their queer little ways. When a couple of them happen to alight near each other, they will bob their heads back and forth like a mockery of little old men saying, 'How de do?' Then of a sudden, perhaps, they will seem to trump up some imaginary offense, humping up their shoulders and wriggling their tails, swearing at one another in pantomime, as it were, sharpening their bills on the ground, as though preparing for most sanguinary battle. But it is all a bluff, for after trying to stare one another out of countenance for a moment or two it always appears that one is afraid and the other dares not, and BO the affair ends by both flying away in a sort of shamefaced flurry, never looking back." "You have been very observing," she remarked, almost witb irritation. Why was this man, in whom nature and education appeared to have worked together in the making of a gentleman, out off from tho world to which it seemed he might legitimately belong, merely a breaker of horses on these Wyoming plains? Why, when she had so pointedly given him an opportunity, would'be not explain himself? "Somethings have been rather forced upon my observation," ho said simply. "I was line rider once for awhile. Then the stock, the coyotes and prairie dogs, rattlesnakes and birds were about all the society I had. ^Naturally I came to know them pretty well" "Line rider?" "Yon don't understand," smiling at her puzzled air as be spoke. "But yon must know that the Wyoming Stock Growers' association has bad a,fence built along the eastern lino of the state to keep the cattle from drifting over into Nebraska in the heavy storms, which used to involve so muoh trouble and ox- pense in getting them book, to say nothing of inevitable losses.

BAH Ftuscsioo, Dec. tt.- J The Chfott* icle received the following cablcgrfttt from its specifll correspondent, now at • Biroshlma, giving a strong denial to the reports of butchery of Chinese civilians at Fort Arthur after thf forts were tftksm HIROSHIMA, Dec. 16.—Concerning the) alleged massacre at Port Arthur, I am assured by Ito Myogi, secretary general of the imperial cabinet, that the reports are exaggerated. He asks consideration of these f actot First—That » majority of socftlled Chinese civilians said to have been butchered by Japanese troops at Port Arthur were really soldiers in plain elothes. This was established by scores of the slain. Second—That the Chinese soldiers always discard their uniforms when in flight. Third—That moat of the civilians had previously fled. Those who remained were armed with rifles and fired on tb» Japanese. Fourth—That the mikado's forces, when they marched into the fallen stronghold, were highly excited to find that the bodies of their captured comrades had been fearfully mutilated. The Chinese garrison, seeing that Port Arthur was) doomed, had put the Japanese prisoner* to atrocious deaths. The victors found the pinioned bodies of their fellow soldiers ripped open and disemboweled, while some captives had been burned alive. These atrocities and the memory of others committed by the Chinese since the beginning of the war enraged the Japanese beyond endurance, yet nearly 400 Chinese prisoners were taken by the Japanese when Port Arthur fell. These will be sent to Tokio and as kindly treated as others have been. The wounded Chinese prisoners are treated well, the emperor's own physician being in charge of the capital. AU m Armenian Herrfc Fleih. TIFLIS, Russian Transcaucasia, Deo. 17.—A letter which appeared in a paper here states that for 10 days the resident* of Armenian villages, where the outrages were perpetrated, fought against the Kurds. The Armenians lost only 10 warriors, while the Kurds lost MO. When the regular troops under Zeki Pasha appeared, the Armenians were compelled to succumb. After Zeki Pasha's treachery in offering peace, 6n young Armenian men were seized and tortured honiblyfbr three days. Then all were murdered and their bodits buried in » ditch. Among the Armenian heroes who lost their lives, the writer mentions Der- bedroz, who with bis hands killed seven Kurds in a fair fight. He was captured and flayed to the waist. Pieces of his wrists were cut off, broiled and eaten by the savage Turks while be was still alive. Japaneie Faroe Strengthened. HIBOSUIMA, Dec. 17.—A dispatch from the front states reinforcements were sent to the Japanese detachment which on Dec. 12 was compelled by a superior Chinese force to retire from Saibasbn., On Dec. 14 the strengthened Japanese^ force made another attack on the Chi-" nese who were advancing from 8aibaiho.| The latter fought with vigor, but wen completely routed, fleeing in disorder. The Japanese pursued the enemy as far Chokinshu and captuied four guns and several prisoners. The Japanese loss was three officers wounded. and 70 privates killed or wounded. Tho Chinese are still confronting the Japanese division commanded by General Tatsumi and fighting is expected shortly. American Cattle Tor Hesloo. .
