The light of the A ' ™ orn 'ns lay cold and clear over that Jl -well-known scene. The pavilion was f ;r ut a blackened wreck.

"I disarmed you last night while you were nursing Clara; out this morning—here—take your pistol. No thanks!" he cried, holding up his hand. "I do not like them; ,taat is the only way you can annoy me now." •He began to walk backward across the -links to meet the boat, and I fol- gtw-v , ! d a ste P or tw ° behind. In front IP'o: °J the Pavilion I paused to see where •Mr. Huddlestone had fallen; but there was no sign of him, nor so much as a trace of blood. ; "Graden Floe," said Northmour. He continued to advance till we had j liant repartee when my humorous darts were leveled at herself. This may all seem enigmatical to the reader, but will assume an aspect of entire plausibility in th'e light of the fact that she and I were telegraph operators at widely-separated stations on a western railway. She knew as little of the young man with whom she dally chatted as 1 did of herself. We had each drawn an ideal picture of the personal appearance of the other, and In our frequent conversations over the wire, each had in mind a face and figure to whom the remarks were addressed. I had pictured her as a bright-eyed, laughing, jolly little creature, with golden curls and silvery voice. I often wondered what sort of a mortal picture she had drawn of myself. come to the head of the beach. "No farther, please," said he. "Would you like to take her to Graden House?" 1 "Thank you," replied I; "I shall try to get her to the minister's at Graden Wester." The prow of the boat here grated on the beach, and a sailor jumped ashore with a line in his hand. 1 "Wait a minute, lads!" cried Nprth- mour; and then lower and to my private ear: "You had better say nothing of this to her," he added. "On the contrary!" I broke out, "she shall know everything that I can tell." "You .-, do not understand," he returned, with an air of great dignity "It will be nothing to her; she ex- Good-bye!" he added, >pects it of me. with a nod. i I offered him my hand. , "Excuse me," said he. "It's small I know;' but I can't push things quite BO far as that. I don't wish any sentimental business, to sit by your hearth a white-haired wanderer, and all that. Quite the contrary: I hope to God I shall never again clap eyes on either of you." "Well, God bless you, Northmour!" said heartily. "Oh, yes," he returned. He walked down the beach, and the Red Rock, where I was located, was a station on the Santa Fe railway, in the Cherokeen strip of Oklahoma', before that now famous stretch of land was purchased by the government from the Indians and thrown open for settlement. The population of the town (7) consisted of a burly section foreman, of Milesian extraction; his wife, a red-faced, red-armed woman, who had no aspirations outside the limits of her not over-clean kitchen; four section laborers, and myself, the agent and operator for the railway company. The country was, at the time of which I write, a wild one, inhabited only by Indians, a few cattlemen who leased grazing lands from the aboriginal owners, the cowboys who looked after the scattered herds, and roving bands of desperadoes under the leadership of the Dalton brothers, the most famous of whom, Bill Dalton, was punctured by a well-directed bullet from the rifle of a deputy United States marshal but a few days ago, and who died with pistol in hand cursing the shot which had laid him low. Miss Rankin was my predecessor in the position of agent and operator at Red Rock. She learnt the art of telegraphy in the train dispatcher's office at Arkansas City, where her widowed mother resided, and when competent to assume charge of a small station, had asked for and been given a position at Red Rock. She tired, of a while, of the lonely monotony of that obscure station, and asked to be sent to one less isolated from mankind; and when one day the operator at Ed- rnond, further down the line, reported that his fingers had been "pinched" >while endeavoring to couple ,two cars together, and that he must hasten to Arkansas City for surgical attention, the Red Rock agent was telegraphed instructions to lock up her depot, leave the key in the care of the section foreman, and proceed on a train then almost due to Edmond, and assume charge until the injured agent should return. I was at the time an "extra operator" on a Kansas division, and on the afternoon of the day on which Miss Rankin left Red Rock, I found myself sitting in her recently vacated chair for an indefinite stay at the lonely station. My first train report had scarce announced my presence to the operators He looked at me a moment ia ft half-mischleVoua man* ner, and replied: "Say, Fred, I've heard some of thd boys on, the line say you was dead gon« on that piece, and I have ah idea she is on your trail, too, for she made ma tell her all abbut you while my train was lying there this morning waiting for No. 7. Did- you never see her?" "No, I never had the pleasure of meeting Miss fcankin." "Miss Ran"kin? You mean Mrs. Raft- kin." "Mean wha-a-a-at?" "Mrs. Rankin. I thought you knew she was a widow with two kids at her mother's, up in Arkansas City. 1 guesa she's square enough sort of woman, but when you see her, old man, I've an idea you won't want a second look. She's no spring chicken! Forty if she's a day, and she doesn't need a better protector than that face of hers. And temper! Gee-whiz! My hlnd- brakeman asked her the other day If that face didn't pain her, and she grabbed up a coupling-pin and let It go at him. He'd have been a dead brakey if he hadn't been a good dodger. He never sticks his head out of the caboose window now while we are at that station, for she's got it in for him." The passenger whistled, and he hastened to his train to pull out as soon as the track was clear. How cruelly my idol was shattered. After the trains had gone, I sat as if dazed; in fact, I was so absorbed In digesting the startling information I had gleaned from Armstrong that I neglected to report their departure, and the "jacklng-up" I received from the train-dispatcher for my Inattention to duty served to still further increase the 111 temper into which the conductor's story had thrown me. The snappy clicks of the instruments had scarcely ceased to convey to my ears the merited reproof, concluding with the stereotyped chestnut which dispatchers always crack in such cases, "Don't let It occur again," ere I heard a call from Edmond. Heretofore I had fairly sprung to the table to respond to that call, but now I felt no desire to enter a conversation with the ogre who pre« sided at the key at that distant station. It was with no gentle touch that I answered her call. "Say, Sd" (my personal signal), "it's CASUALTIES.

Carrie The Telegraph Girl XXX A ROMANCE OF THE CHEROKEE STRIP. XXX By Captain Jack Crawford "THE POET SCOUT." had not met Carrie Rankin. I did it know if she was long or short, or brunette, sweet sixteen or fabled forty, plump as a mountain or thin and angular as a Kansas ale suffragist; yet we had become best of friends, and daily chatted |th each other on terms of marked ''Ability. I confess that, as the days i|jl by and I listened to her witty sslons and bright conversatipn, I ad myself falling in love with her, I had not the least tangible idea 3jer personal appearance, and knew ' -whether her voice was soft and eical, or pitched in a high key that harsh and disagreeable to the ear. she was good-natured and pos- of a keen sense of humor, for would laugh heartily a,t my re- rke, ana respond with the most bril- that she had been denied the privilege of extending to me a personal welcome to my new home, said she hoped I would find the station a pleasant one, and asked me if I would not kindly collect a number of feminine trifles which she had overlooked in packing her trunk, and then send them down to her. She would be ever so much obliged, and should an opportunity present itself, would certainly reciprocate my kindness. That was my first "meeting" with a lady who was soon destined to play a heroic part In a thrilling adventure in which I was a prominent, figure. Little by little Miss Rankin and myself became acquainted over the wire. We were soon holding daily conversations, then semi-dally, and then our chats became so frequent that at times jealous operators at other stations would break in on our conversation with hints that some one was "mashed" on some one else, and that we had better give the suffering wire a rest and do our spooning by mail. To these ungentlemanly interruptions we paid but little attention, but continued our long-distance Intercourse—I, as I before remarked, falling more hopelessly in love with my new friend as the days sped by, and often wondering if a reci- procatory feeling was riot growing in warmth at the other end of the wire. I was a young man of but 20, very susceptible to female charms, and as I was then denied even a look at a pretty face, aside from fleeting glimpses of female passengers on passing trains, I came to regard Miss Rankin as "my best girl," and her personal telegraphic signal, "Cr," became the sweetest sound my instrument clicked into my ears. • Modesty, coupled with a fear of being "guyed," had prevented me from questioning the train men regarding the personal appearance of my inamorata, but one day when I had orders to hold a north-bound freight until a belated south-bound passenger had arrived, and the freight conductor, Tom Armstrong, came into my office and gat down for a chat, I determined to sound him and learn a little something of the idol of my dreams. "What sort of a looking girl is that now holding down Edmond station ?" I asked. too bad, but u shld 'tend to biz. Ha! ha! ha! Was u sleep or reading letr fm ur girl?" Thus came her consolatory messago in the abbreviated conversational style of the telegrapher, and it served to fan the flames of my anger into a fierce heat. Had it been the nice little maiden of my dreams who had slung such chaff at me over the wires I would have smiled and thought it real cute, but that fright! Bah! "I dt no as it interests u wt I was doing. I'm 2 busy to talk nw." I snapped the words off with spite-" ful sharpness and closed my key with a thump that almost sprung the circuit breaker. "Well u needn't bite my nose off coz Dr (the dispatcher) turned you over. Call me up when u get in gd humor. I've something to sa to u." My gentlemanly instincts sharply reproved' me for treating her in such an ungentlemanly manner. Had she ever led me to believe she was young and handsome? Was she to be blamed because she was a widow, wore a caricature in lieu of a face and was the mother of two children, no doubt as ugly as herself? I felt a tinge of shame for having spoken so crossly to her, and with softer touch of the key replied: "I beg pardon, madam. I've got bad hedake today, and feel cross as bear. Forgot I was talking to lady. Wt u want to sa to me?" "O, I'm real sorry ur not well, for I've been 'ticipating pleasant visit with u. The agent here is on No. 6, and I'm ordeied to Ark. City, and I thought if twould be greeable to u I'd go up on freight trn and stop over t'r for passenger ts eveng. I want to c the old statn again." (To be continued.)

The Revolutionary Tories. James K. Hosmer in the Atlantic: If George III. and his ministers were embarrassed by opposition at home, says James K. Hosmer in the July Atlantic, the American patriots were no less embarrassed. An energetic minority, it has been said, brought to pass the revolution, which proceeding, especially from New England, was carried through in spite of a majority in the colonies—a majority in great part quite apathetic, but to some extent actively resisting. The emigration of forces, when the day was at last won, was relatively as great as that of the Huguenots from France after the revocation or the Edict of Nantes. The total number is estimated to have been at least one hundred thousand. In this multitude were comprised only such, with their families, as had 1 been active for the king. The indifferent, who had lent no helping hand to the patriots, must have been a multitude much larger; these remained behind, inertly submitting to the new order of things as they had ewayed inertly this way or that, following the power and direction of the blast of war.
