•ind, apparently oblivious of the on-
coming pursuers, he rode out of the
trail to meet him They shook hands
t.nd Amlgo flashed his familiar smile,
glancing shyly over the horse's back
nt the daughter of the Aragons.
"I knew the horse," he explained,
with a gentle caress for Copper Hot-
tom "My people—up there—kill Mex-
icans! Where you go?"
"North—to the line," answered Hud,
pointing up the pass.
"Muy malo!" frowned the Yaqul,
glancing once more at the woman be-
hind. "Muchos revoltosos!"
"Where?" asked Hud.
"Everywhere!" replied Amlgo with
a comprehensive wave of the hand.
•'Hut no matter," he added simply. "I
will go with you. Who are these
"Rurales!" responded Hooker, and
Yaqul's black eyes dilated.
"Yes," nodded Hud as ho read the
pwift question in their glance. "Ho is
there, too—Del Hey!"
"Que bueno!" exclaimed the Indian,
fixing his eagle glance upon the riders,
lie showed his white teeth in a smile.
In an instant he saw his opportunity,
lie saw his enemy riding Into a trap,
and turned his face to the pass.
What Amigo had waited for, the op-
portunity he had watched for, was
fit hand. Del Hey should pay the
price of that scar the Yaqul carried.
Not again would the bullet go astray,
und his people should have one less
Mexican to fight after that day. The
hatred of generations lay behind the
thoughts of the Indian He cared
nothing for the grievance of the girl,
and he would not kill Del Rey for
that, but for his own reasons.
"Come!" he said, laying hold of a
latlgo strap, and as Hooker loped on

"No," he said; "but the best way is
straight for that pass."
He pointed at a distant wedge cut
down between the blue of two ridges,

Of this Hud had no knowledge. He
realized only that she was growing

turning pale at a peculiar matter-of-

"Sure," said Hooker; "he says there
are revoltosos ahead. It will be bet-
Iter for you, he says, to ride on."
"Madre do Dios!" breathed Gracla,
clutching at her saddle; and then she
nodded her head weakly.
"You better get down for a minute."
suggested Hooker, helping her qulck-
)y to the ground "Here, drink some
water—you're kinder faint I'll be
right back—jest want to say good-by."
He strode over to where Amigo had
posted himself behind a rock and laid
tk hand on his arm.
"Adios, Amlgo!" he said, but the
TYaqul only glanced at him strangely.
"Anything in ray camp, you're wel-
come to it," added Hooker, but Amigo
did not respond. Ills black eyes, far-
he laid her gently In the shade.
"Poor girl," he muttered, "it's been
too much for you. I'll get some water, •
and pretty soon you can eat."
He unslung the canteen from his j
saddle-flap, gave her a drink, and left j
her to herself, glancing swiftly along
the horizon as he tied out their mounts
to graze. Hut for her faintness lie
would have pushed on farther, for he j
had seen men off to the east, but bun- .
ger and excitement had told upon her
even more than the day-and-night rid -
For a woman, and sitting a side-sad
die, she had done better than he had
hoped; and yet well. It was a loug
way to the border and he doubted if
she could make it. She lay still in the
shade of the mesqult, Just as he had |
placed her. and when he brought the
sack of food she did not raise her
"Hetter eat something." he sug- j
gested, spreading out some bread and j
dried beef "Here's some oranges I
got from Don Juan -I'll just put them j
over here for you."
Gracia shuddered, sighing wearily
Then, as if his words had hurt her, j
she covered her face and wept.
"What did you tell that man?" she j
asked at last.
"W'y—-what man?" inquired Hook- !
t r, astonished "Ain't you going to !
eat?" • |
"No!" she cried, gazing out nt him j
through her tears, "not until I know i
what you said. Did you tell that In- j
dian to—to kill him?"
She broke down suddenly In a fit of

What made you think that?"
"Why—you rode over and spoke to
! hlra—and he looked at me—and then—
! he—killed him!"
She gave way to a paroxysm of grief
at this, and Hud looked around hlin,
J wondering. That she was weak and
hungry he knew, but what was this
she was saving?
"I reckon I don't understand what
you're driving at," he said at last
"Wish you'd eat something—you'll feel
*0, I won't eat!" she declared, sit-
ting up and frowning. "Mr. Hooker,"
she went on very miserably, "what did
you mean this morning when you—
laughed! I said I hated poor Manuel
—and you said—well, what you did—
and you laughed! Did you think—oh,
you couldn't have—that 1 really want
ed him killed?"
"W'y, sure not!" cried Hooker
heartily. "I knowed ^ou was fooling'
Didn't I laugh at you? Say, what kind
of a feller do you think I am. anyway?
D'ye think I'd get an Indian to do my
"Oh, then didn't you?" she cried,
suddenly brightening rp. "You know,
you talk so rough sometimes—and I
never do know what you mean! You
said you guessed you'd have to kill
him for me, you know, and—oh, It was
too awful! I must be getting foolish,
I'm so tired out, but—what did you
tell that Indian?"
Hud glanced at her sharply for a
moment and then decided to humor
her Perhaps, If ho could get her
quieted, she would stop talking and
begin to eat.
"He asked me who was after us," he
said, "und I told him It was Del Rey."
"Yes, and what did he say then?"
"lie didn't say nothing jest lined
out for the pass."
"And didn't you say you wanted—
"No!" burst out Hud, half angrily.
"Haven't I told you once? I did not!
That Indian had reasons of his own,
believe me—he's got a scar along his
ribs where I>el Rey shot him with a
six-shooter! And, furthermore," he
added, as her face cleared at this ex-
planation of the mystery, "you'd better
try to take me at my word for the rest
of this trip! Ixioks to me like you've
been associating with these Mexicans
"Why, what do you mean?" she do
"I mean this," answered Hooker, "be-
ing as we're on the subject again.

all that; and more'n once you've hinted
that I wasn't brave because 1 wouldn't

be peaceable and quiet, but don't you

ly, and her eyes fell before his.
"You must excuse me," she said,
looking wistfully away, "I did not—I
did not understand. And so the poor
Yaqui was only avenging an injury?"
she went on, reaching out one slender
hand toward the food. "Ah, I can un-
derstand It now he looked so savage
and fierce. Hut"—she paused again,
set back by a sudden thought—"didn't
you know he would kill hiin?"
"Yes, ma'ain," answered Hooker
quietly, "I did.''
"Then—then why didn't you—"
"That was between them two," he
replied doggedly "Del Rey shot him
once when he was wounded and left
him for dead. He must have killed
some of his people, too; his wife meb-
bo, for all I know. He never would
talk about it, but he come back to get
his revenge. I don't shoot no man
from cover myself, but that ain't it—
it was between them two."
"And you?" she suggested. "If you
had fought Del Rey?"
"I would have met him in the open,"
"I didn't want to," lie ended bluntly.
"Didn't want to fight him and didn't
want to kill him. Had no call to. And
then—well, there was you."
"Ah!" she breathed, and a flush
mounted her pale cheeks. She smiled
as she reached out once more for the
food and Hooker resolved to do his
best at gallantry, it seemed to make
her so happy.
So you were thinking of me," she
challenged sweetly, all the while? I
ibought perhaps I was a nuisance and
in the way. I thought perhaps you did
not like me because—well, because
I'm a Mex as you say."
"No. ir.a'am," denied Hooker gazing
upon her admiringly "Nothing like
that! When I say Mex I mean these
low, pelado Mexicans—Don Juan tells
me you're pure Spanish."
"With perhaps a little Yaqui." she
"Well, mebbe lie did say that, too."
confessed Hud Hut it's jest as good
as Spanish -they say all the big men
in Sonora have got some Yaqul blood
—Morral that was vice-president; the
Tomes brothers, governors—"
And Aragon!" she added playfully,
but at a look in his eyes she stopped.
Hud rould not look pleasant and think
"Ah, yet*." she rattled on. "1 know
You like the Yaquis better than the
Spanish—1 saw you shaking hands
with that Indian And what was it
you called him—Amigo?"
"That's right," smiled Hooker; "him
and me have been friends for months
now out at the mine. I'd do anything
for that feller."
I "Oh. now you make ma Jealous." aha
I pouted. "If I were only a Yaqui—and

I "Never mind," defended Hud. "He

trlends, believe me. are scarce."
There was a shade of bitterness in
his voice that did not escape her, and
i she was careful not to allude to Phil.
His name, like the name of her father,
always drove this shy man to silence,
and she wanted to make him talk.
' Then you ought to be friends with
i ine," she chided, after a silence. "I
have always wanted to be your friend

Just looked at me once—and looked
away. Why did you never respond
when I came there to look for you?
You would just ride by and look at

"No," agreed Hud, smiling quietly
"lie was crazy to see you, but he rode j
right by, looking at the\windows and i
"The first time I met him." mused j
Gracla, I asked about you. Did he j
ever tell you?"
Hud hung his head and grinned
sheepishly. It was not difficult to make |
out a case against him.
And so Gracla had not wanted Del j
Rey killed as he thought she did. j
She was not the vicious woman he
had thought her for a time. She was
just the gentle, noble girl he had |
sworn to protect and conduct across .
the border to her fiance. Again came j
the desire to claim her, but there was
not only Phil to be thought of but
the fitness of himself to be the mate
of this woman.
"Is it something I have done?" she
asked at last. "Is that why you never
liked me? Now, Mr. Hooker, please
speak to me! And why do you always
sit so far away—are you afraid of me?
Hut look."—she moved closer to him
"here we are alone, and I am not afraid
"Of course not," answered Hud, look-
ing across at her boldly. "Why should
you be—you ain't afraid of noth-
"Is that a compliment ?" she demand
ed eagerly. "Oh, then I'm so happy—
it's the first you ever paid me! Hut
have I been brave," she beamed, "so
far? Have I been brave, like a man?"
"Sure have!" remarked Hooker im-
personally, "but we ain't there yet
Only thing I don't like about you is
you don't eat enough. Say, don't pick
up them crumbs let me pare off some
more of this Jerked beef for you. Can't
nobody be brave when they're hun-
gry, you know, and I want to bring you
in safe "
"Why?" she inquired, as she accept-
ed the handful of meat. "Is is on
Phil's account?" she ventured, ns he
sat gazing stoically at the horses.
"You were such friends, weren't you?"
she went on Innocently. "Oh, that Is
why I admire the Americans so much
—they are so true to each other!"
"Yes," observed Hooker, rolling his
eyes on her, "we're fine that way!"
"Well, I mean It!" she insisted, as
she read the irony in his glance.
"Sure! So do I!" answered Hooker,
and Gracia continued her meal in si-

suddenly, you know!"
She gazed up at him demurely, curl- I
ous to see how he would evade tills evi- j
dence that he had prepared in advance |
for their ride. Hut once more, as ho
had always done, Hooker eluded the
cunningly laid snare
"1 was figuring on pulling out my-
self," he replied ingenuously.
"What? And not take me?" she
cried. "Oh, 1 thought—but dear me,
what is the use?"
She sighed and dropped her head
"I am so tired!" she murmured de-
spondently; "shall we be going on
Not unless somebody jumps us,"
returned Hud. "Here, let me make

temptingly—"you lay down and get j

He slipped away at '.fell. grinning to
himself, and sat dovfa to watch the
plain. All about him lay the waving
grass laud, tracked up by the hoofs of
cattle that had vanished in the track
of war. In the distance he could see
the line of a fence and the ruins of a
house. The trail which he had fol-
lowed led on and on to the north. Hut
all the landscape was vacant, except
lor his grazing horses Above the
mountains the midday thunder-caps
were beginning to form; the air was
very soft and warm, and— He woke
up suddenly to find his head on his

and shaking himself resolutely, "thii

fiercely at brown-paper cigarettes, and
still the Bleep came back. The thun-
derclouds over the mountains rose
higher and turned to black, they let
down Bklrts and fringes and sudden
stabs of lightning, while the wind
sucked in from the south. And then,
with a slash of rain, the shower was
At the first big drops Gracla stirred
uneasily in her sleep She started up
as the storm burst over them; then, as
Hud picked up the saddle-blankets and
spread them over her, she drew him
down beside her and they sat out the
storm together. Hut it was more to
them than a sharing of cover, a patient
enduring of the elements, and the
sweep of wind and rain. When they
rose up there was a bond between
them and they thrust and parried no
They were friends, there in the rush
of falling water and the crash of light-
ning overhead. When the storm was
over and the sun came out they smiled
at each other contentedly without fear
of what such smiles may me.an.
As the sun. after a passing stornl,
conies forth all the more gloriously, so
the joy of their new-found friendship
changed the world for Hud and Gra
cia. The rainbow that glowed against
the retreating clouds held forth more
than a promise of sunshine for them,
and they conversed unly of pleasant
things as they rode on up the trail.
The dangers that still lay between
them and the border seemed very re-
mote now, and neither gave them a
thought. There waa no one in all the
wide world but Just these two. this
man and woman who nad found them
Twenty miles ahead lay the northern
pass, and from there it was ten more
to Gadsden, but they spoke neither of
the pans nor of Gadsden nor of who
would be awaiting them there. Their
talk was like that of children, incon-
sequential and happy. They told of
the times when they had seen oach
other, and what they had thought; of
the days of their childhood, before
they had met at Fortuna; of hopes
and fears and thwarted ambitions and
all the young dreams of life.
Hud told of his battle-scarred father
and their ranch in Arizona; of his
mother and horse-breaking brothers,
and his wanderings through the West:
Gracla of her mother, with nothing of
her father, and how she had flirted in
order to be sent to school where she
could gaze upon the upstanding Amer-
icans. Only Hud thought of the trail
and scanned the horizon for rebels,
but he seemed more to seek her eyes
than to watch for enemies and death.
They rode on until the sun sank low
and strange tracks struck their trail
from the east. E*ud observed that the
horses were shod, and more tracks of
mounted men came in beyond. He
turned sharply toward the west and
followed a rocky ledge to the hills,
without leaving a hoof-print to mark
the way of their retreat
Those hoof prints brought Hud back
from the land of dreams in which
he had been wandering to a realiza-
tion of the dangers that lurked about
them. Hut a little way ahead was the
pass they must cross, and he sifi
denly realized that they could not
safely do so In the broad light of
day. He must not take such chances
of losing his new found happiness.

Says Moon Is Oval Shaped.
Astronomers will await with inter-
est details of the "experiment" car-
ried out by Professor Stiattesl at Ho-
logna by which he claims to have
demonstrated that the moon is oval
The moon Is more easily measured
than any other heavenly body, but
though It has been measured thou-
sands of times no difference has been
detected between its polar and equa-
torial diameters. A clergyman recently
put forward the theory that the side
of the moon always turned away from
the earth is of the same size and
shape as the great pyramid which, ac-
cording to Revelations, forms the
"New Jerusalem." Eventually, so as-
serts the author of the theory, the
moon will fall on the earth, and the
hemisphere turned earthward will
bury itself in our planet, while the
pyramidal New Jerusalem will project
above the rack and ruin of the ele-
ments as the Celestial City, where the
faithful are to spend eternity
This remarkable lunar theory has
been published with a preface by the
bishop of Exeter

HINT EASY TO UNDERSTAND
English Farmer Had Made Old Mis-
take of Counting Chickens Be-
fore They Were Hatched.
An old farmer in the Midlands was
anxious to marry, but could not make
up his mind between the charms of a
certain comely widow in the neigh-
borhood and her equally charming
At last he resolved to let chance
solve the problem.
"I'll ax th' one I fust sees a-goin'
in," he muttered, and off he started on
his amatory errand. Hut when he ar-
rived both mother and daughter were
sitting in the doorway.
"Dang.it!" lie cried. "Here was I

To Increase Supply of Salmon.
Important experiments have recent-
ly been made by the fisheries expert
for British Columbia in connection
with the hatchery operations. Last
year at Snaton laka, instead of plac-
ing all the sockeye salmon eggs in
trays, as has been the custom hereto-
fore, a plan was adopted more in
keeping with tha natural methods fol-
lowed by the iish. The eggs, after
having been inoculated with the
lymph, were buried under five to sav-
en inches ol' sand and gravel. Over
L'OO.OOO ova were thus treated in tanks
especial!,' made therefor, and as a re-
sult 18S.000 healthy fry have been
taken out with the possibility of more
to follow. This is a plendld record,
as compared with the old pan sys-
tem, and it is bell ved by the experts
that the new method will revolution-
ize the business of the hatcheries.

Coffee's Weight on Old Ago.
When people realize the injurious
effects of coffee and the change in
health that Postum can bring, they are
usually glad to lend their testimony
for the benefit of others.
"My mother, since her early child-
hood, was an inveterate coffee drinker,
had been troubled with her heart for a
number of years and complained of
that «eak all over' feeling and sick
"Some time ago I was making a
visit to a distant part of the country
and took dinner with one of the
merchants of the place. I noticed a
somewhat unusual flavour of the 'cof-
fee' and asked him concerning It. lie
replied that it was Postum.
1 was so pleused witji It that, after
the meal was over, I bought a package
to carry home with me, and had wife
prepare some for the next meal. The
whole family were so well pleased
with it that we discontinued coffee and
used Postum entirely.
I had really been at times very
anxious concerning my mother's con-
dition, but we noticed that after using
Postum for a short time, she felt so
much better than she did prior to its
use, and had little trouble with her
heart, and 110 sick stomach; that the
