A CASE IN EQUITY.
BY FRANCIS LYNDE.
[Copyright, 1895. by J. B. Upplncott Co.]
A CHANCE ACQUAINTANCE.
The train 011 the Chiwassee Valley ex-
tension lurched uiieusily round the
< uries in the new track of the branch
line, leaving a trail of sooty smoke
tmnging in the foliage 011 the mountain
side and stippling the pools in the river
with showers of cinders from the en-
gine where the railway embankment
skirted the stream. The afternoon sun
had dropped behind the summit of
John's mountain, but his oblique rays
<>till poured into the valley through oc-
casional gaps in the ridge, projecting
grotesquely lengthened shadows of the
moving train half way across to the
western slope of Jubal mountain. A
.vol breeze, fragrant with the breath of
wild honeysuckle and spicy with the
resinous smell of old-field pines, blew in
4it the open windows of the ear; and
Phorndyke, lying back in his seat with
half-closed eyes, tried once more to set
in their proper order the events of the
lust few days in New York. There was
no particular reason why they should
he assorted and labeled, save one; the
memory of them seemed to be slipping
away from him. There were times
when he could not be sure that he had
signed his will; when he could not re-
member what he had said to his mother
at parting. And as for that pathetic
little scene in the dimly-lighted draw-
ing-room at the Morrissons', it might
have happened ten years before. He
asked himself if it were possible that it
was only two days since he had choked
in trying to say good-by to Ilelen. It
was beyond belief; the miles of distance
had somehow become transmuted into j instead of dinne

Notwithstanding the poet's doubting
question, there is always more or less
in a name; and the Hotel Johannisberg
gained a guest that night upon 110 bet-
ter grounds than that the word awoke
pleasant memories in the mind of a
man who knew Ku.rope rather better
than he did his own country. As the
omnibus jounced along over the un-
paved streets, Thorndyke amused him-
self by picturing the probable contrast
between the backwoods tavern ami its
high-sounding appellation. lie was
rataer more than surprised, therefore,
whe.n the omnibus stopped in front of
a tdiree-storied building standing in
a park-like inclosure and ablaze
with gas and electric lights; and as-
tonishment rose into admiration when
a liveried servant, ushered him into the
magnificent rotunda lioorvd w ith mar-1
ble mosaic and wainscoted in quarter- I
sawed oak. Kverything about the place
was cosmopolitan and modern, from |
the convenient telegraph office in the 1
corner to the suave clerk, who might |
have been a sw ift importation from t-HV j
best-appointed hostelry in New York.
"Glad to welcome you to AJlacooehee. |
Mr. Thorndyke," he said, hospitably, j
when Philip had registered. "We're ;i j
little crowded to-night, but I can giw
you a good room on the second lloor, |
if that will answer."
"I'm not particular, so that it's com-
fortable," replied Thorndyke, glad to
have his forebodings dispelled. "Is
"Dinner, if you please," corrected the
clerk, affably, summoning a call-boy.
"Show Mr. Thorndyke to his room No.

ored guide to the elevator with an un-
comfortable conviction growing upon
him t hat he had somehow stamped him-
If as provincial by suggesting supper
years of time, and the memory of that
evening, only two evenings ago, was al-
ready beginning to fade. Was it only
because the change of scene and of en-
eonipassment pushed the things of yes-
terday aside to make room for newer
impressions, or did the reason lie in the
prim fact of irrevocability? Thorn-
oykc pursued these reflections so far
into the field of abstractions that the
man in the next scat spoke twice before
he got an answer.
"1 beg your pardon," Philip said,
coining back to actualities with a re-
luctant effort. "What did you say?"
"1 asked if you were going up to Alia*
coochee," said the voice.
It was an unpleasant voice, remind-
ing one of the buzzing of bluebottle
The meal was excellent and well
served; and the comfort of his room,
after two weary nights in the sleep- |
ing car. made Thorndyke a late riser on
his first morning in Allaeoochee. After
breakfast he went out upon the veranda
to give the feeling of appreciative sur-
prise a chance to expand with a wider
view. The Hotel Johannisberg was
ow ned by the Town company, and its
situation on a slight knoll at the foot
of John's mountain had been chosen
with a view to the prospect. Standing

a background of wooded slopes rising

The human fly was not to be silenced
by any such mild discouragement. "I
supposed so," lie buzzed. "My name
is Fench—Jenkins Fench,"—-handing j
Thorndyke a card which ingeniously j
combined the name with a somewhat
ungrammatical advertisement of the I
Allacoochee Land, Manufacturing and j

meekly, passing his card across to the

"Ah, Thorndyke; glad to know you,
Mr. Thorndyke. As I was saying, if

Mr. Fench seemed nonplused for the
moment, but he rallied immediately and
went on with increasing zeal.
"In that case, Mr. Thorndyke, what
better legacy could a man leave his
folks than a few solid investments in
cur promising young city? Why, my
dear Fir, as a stranger, you can have
no idea of the vast and wonderful re-
sources of this marvelous region—abso-
lutely no idea at all. And Allacoochee

floor, and here's the railroad running
straight through the middle of it"—he
was leaning over the back of the seat.
now, holding the map spread out before
his unwilling listener—"plenty of room
for sidetracks dver here, you see. and
for the shops that the road's going to
build. Then here arc the spurs down
to the rolling mill and the furnace on
the bank of the river; this one goes up
to the coal mines and that to the iron
mines across the Little Chiwassee. This
piece of ground's reserved for a woolen
mill, and that strip down there by the
river is taken for a swing factory—
baby swings, you know— a sawmill, a
planing mill, a sash and door factory,
Philip made two or three wild passes
at his human blueliottle, succeeding
finally in interrupting with a promise
to call upon Mr. Fench at his office and
pleading weariness as an excuse for not
investigating the subject on the spot.
Fench folded his map and rested his
ease with the promise; but lie kept up
n running fire of encomiums on the new-
south and Allacoochee, which the effort
at postponement had only changed from
particulars to generalities, while Philip
leaned back in the corner of the seat
and gave himself up to an ecstasy of
loathing. While, the endless tale of
prosperity continued the light went
out of the sky, and it was quite dark
w hen the brakeman thrust his face into
the car to call "Allacoochee!"
Thorndyke gathered up his belong-
ings with a sigh of relief and presently
found himself standing under the glare
of an electric lamp on the station plnt-
forin, trying to hazard a guess at the
best hotel in the place as the names
were shouted out by ^lie knot of yelling
"Here you are for the Allacoochee
j "Right dis-away for de Mountain
ing the windings of the Little Chiwas-
see, the bold forehead of Hull moun-
tain overtopping the town. These were
the frame for the picture which human
activity was etching into the level area
inclosed by the two streams. Long
vistas of streets marked by furrows
turned at the curb lines; open spaces
dotted with the stakes of the surveyor
and heaped with piles of brick and lum-
ber; uncounted numbers of half-fin-
ished buildings upon which the work-
men clustered like swarming bees; the
muffled drumming of hoisting engines;
the strident exhausts of the locomo-
tives in the railway yard; the clang of
hammers in a boiler shop—everywhere
the sights and sounds of restless in-
dustry and impatient progress.
Under such circumstances the gre-
garious impulse asserts itself irresisti-
bly. Thorndyke looked about him for
a possible sympathizer, and, by a proc-
ess of natural selection which is as un-
accountable as it is inerrant, he pitched
upon a young man sitting apart from
the various groups 011 the veranda.
Drawing up a chair, he began to un-

faction, but others would say the coal

facturing centers in the south, and the
consequent pressing need for one just
here; the climate, and a hundred other
"Are the coal and iron realities?"
"Oh, yes, very much so; this moun-
tain behind the hotel is a vast coal bed,
and that one over there"—pointing to
the cliffs across the Little Chiwassee-
"is equally rich in iron of fair quality."
"Then the people are not merely crazy
enthusiasts, after all."
"That's as you please to look at it.
So far as natural resources go, the place
is solid. There is any quantity of build-
ing material, marble, sand and lime-
stone, fire clay, timber, coal and iron.
It a city may be built upon the mere
presence of raw material, Allacoochee
is a fact accomplished."
"That implies a doubt; may I ask the

of Allaeoochee by a comprehensive ges-
ture. "More than that, the same ad-
\untages may be found in plenty of lo-
calities in the. south, some of them
much more accessible than this valley.
And then I have an old-fashioned idea
that cities can't be created arbitrarily."
They smoked in silence for a little
while, and then Thorndyke took a card
from his case and handed it to his com-

"I just got in last night, and you may
be able to tell me what I want to know."

"My physician has sent me here," lie
explained, "and he tells me I must live
out of diHirs. How shall 1 go about it V"
"How do you want to go about it?"
Philip laughed. "I'll have to confess
that my plans are a trifle indefinite. 1
had an idea that perhaps I might go
into the woods w ith the lumbermen or
the turpentine gatherers." j
"You're still too far north for that;
there are 110 lumber camps or turpentine
forests in this part of the state, ami if
there were, I hardly think the life would

"This country is said to be favorable
for consumptives—on better authority
than that of our friends of the pros-

vice--" He paused and looked inquir-
ingly at Philip.
"Yes; please go on."
"I should say that you might find out
what it w ill do for you by getting board
at some farmhouse in the valley. You
could put in your time tramping about,
and the scenery would give you an ob-
ject. There is only one difficulty."
"What is that?"

thing to eat besides bacon and corn-

"You'll find very few of them in
this mountain region; roughly speak-

planters and farmers, and a large ma-
jority of poor folk."
"That's rather discouraging; and yet
it seems as if I ought to l>e able to find

the way of accommodations; I'd lie

that answers your description. It's

"Do you think not? I'd try not to be
troublesome: and if it would lie a ques-
tion of money—"
"No, it wouldn't be a question of
money." l'rotheroe stopped abruptly
and tw isted his mustache. "I wish you
hadn't said that," he added, frowning;
| ' there arc some few Ihings in this world
j that can't be bought with money: a

"I beg your pardon," Philip protested,
i Hushing painfully at the thought that
j l'rotheroe had misconstrued his mean-
ing. "I only meant that I am able and
willing to pay for w hat I get; I—"
Something gripped his throat, and an
uncontrollable lit of coughing st rangled
him and broke the sentence in two.
When he put a handkerchief to his lips
it came away spotted with blood, and

through the long corridor 011 t.he upper
floor, making him lie down as soon as
they reached the room.
"Is there anything else 1 can do for
you? shall I call a doctor?" he asked.
Thorndyke shook his head. "It's
rather worse than 1 gave you to under-
stand: my physician in New York al-
lowed me six months, and I've eaten
into one of them pretty deeply already."
"Six months! Did the man send you

"It amounts to that; but I knew. It
was the only chance for me."

with his hand 011 the doorknob. "I'll
