It was of the quot Wall sort and was pegged to the ground with Strong fastenings. Inside were a Hammock a coarse table two or three a tools and Soma Homes and barrels. There were likewise a an Daron a quot spider a an Iron Kettle some tin dishes and cups and a pair of candlesticks of the same material. Outside there was a Trench dug by Way of Drain Gge so that the. Floor within was kept hard and dry but the Roor was of Earth merely. There was , or a picture or the least ornament whatever within the tent.

Turning h Spade and plying a Hoo dollars . 8uch work was it Ark a War paid As a Rule but Harding though diligent and Strong was not used to. Toil and lie Nee was awkward and comparatively inefficient. He improved with practice and strove doggedly on Neyr losing , saving every Penny spending nothing for drink or Good Fellowship courting no Many a smile and indifferent to All menus frowns. He was savagely Bent on achieving Independence and in no Long time after a fashion be got it. Independency in this sense consisted in a share of a flying claim and in the whole of a quot Wall it in the former he dug and washed morosely enough with five or six partners but he made up for this enforced and distasteful social attrition by living in his tent a alone. Harding was a Man getting toward Middle life strongly built but not tall with a grave handsome face and speech studiously reserved and cold. He seemed to fear lest he might be thought educated and As if to disarm such a suspicion his few words were Apt to be abrupt and homely. When he first came to the Flat he had two Leathern trunks and these in due time were bestowed in the tent on fee Knoll. On sunday Harding opened them. The first contained some respectable garments such As might belong to the Ordinary wardrobe of a a gentleman. There were White shirts among the rest and some pairs of kid gloves. Of All these articles Harding made a pile in the rear of his tent and then deliberately sat them on fire. Quot i afford it before a he muttered. Quot they might have bought a meal or two if need were but now a a to be Rich enough to gratify a Caprice was clearly very agreeable to the Man for presently he brought out a number of books old favourites obviously and treated them in the same incendiary manner. The 81iakespeare and the Milton the Macaulay and the buckle spluttered and crackled reproachfully in the flames yet their destroyer never winced but added to the holocaust heaps of tetters and at last two or three miniatures saved for the fire As a final tid but and gated with grim Joy As the whole crumbled in the end to powdery ashes. Chester Harding reserved nothing but one Little volume bound in velvet with Gilt clasps and one faded old Daguerreotype which he replaced in his trunk aide by Side and then covered quickly so that they should be out of sight. It seemed to be his wish to hide and to forget every Trace of his past life that life had been n hard and bitter one. A from his earliest childhood Harding had been a victim of the weakness and cruelty of others. A miserable Home made a hell by a irk. Sgt a. Contention was at last broken up a in ruin and the Young Man went Forth into the world to meet coldness and injustice at every turn. Suspicion and selfishness Are among the almost certain fruits of an experience like this and the world to naturally More ready to cold a Mit such to find excuses for them found himself uned he As Natu duct so As to jul surrounded from to by bad influences and b Clu Sicly he found Tittle a judgment of men or to mitigate his resent ment for their to in with one who wife goner strength and higher Wisdom m%ht>�ms�1wmi he him up to nobler View and a a letter Desti for he loved her deeply Tom. Bather ohans of Hinte parts in her min Harding was cheated and a craved. Cape old thoughts and associations and to mend if possible broken fortunes he sought the Lana of Gold. He had heard that men were More generous there than elsewhere less cunning Tricky and censorious. Perhaps even he might and average acceptance among new scenes and among a new people. But on the Day he landed Ai san Francisco Harding was robbed by a fellow traveler whom he had befriended of the last Penny he had in the world. The Man had shared his state room on Board the Steamer and knew that he had a draft on the agent of the rothschilds when Harding cashed his draft he took the proceeds in Gola Coin to he hotel. That night he was visited by his shipmate who contrived to steal the Belt containing this Little Fortune and to escape with it to the mines. Next morning Harding sought a near relative an older Man of known wealth his sole acquaintance on the Pacific coast. Quot in be come to you a he said after receiving a somewhat icy greeting quot to ask you to help me. A serious misfortune has overtaken me. And a a a a a if its Money you want a interrupted the other brusquely quot in be got none a this was not the usual fashion of the pioneers. Happily most of them were made of sweeter Ana Kindlien stuff. But the fates had Woven out poor Harding a earlier Fortune and it was All destined to be of the same harsh pitiless web. He bowed his head when these words were said to him. And with the kind of smile Angels must most hate to see on the faces of those so near and so Little below them he went Forth in silence. Next morning he pawned his watch and made his Way up into the mines. A a quot he a cracked that a what he is quot decided Zack storm. Since the great find of Gold at Bullion Flat there had been a great Rush thither from the immediate neighbourhood and among fee rest quite a deputation arrived from Boones bar.

Copperas coughed uneasily. Quot so Harding a going Down is he a he inquired quot right off a quot Sartain. You a better take a trip and keep him there was a murmur of amusement at this. Everybody at the quot Bella Union knew that something had been in the air touching Crifo graphic exploits of or. Cop gras a few years Hack at new Orleans and fore he kept the Faro Bank at Boones bar. Quot for my part a put in Jim Blair who liked to hear injustice done to no Man quot i so pose there�?T8 reasons Why a Chap might want to live alone and yet might no to a knifed anybody nor robbed Mem quot that a so Jim a affirmed judge Carboy Dracula Ray. Quot no doubt on to. But when its so we usually hear what them reasons a. Now who knows air a word on Mem in the Case Afore us anyhow i Hope he a Good Good As Gold Only we be had our sheer of troubles m the county and its Well to look quot when i was a Little Chap a proceeded Jim Blair with retrospective deliberation quot i lived in a Village on the further Side of the Ohio. Most folks did their business on to other Bank and want Over generally by the eight of clock fairy in the inborn in. Now there was two or three that did no to men whose work Lay higher Home or who went later. But the crowd went Over Reg Lar at eight.

Jim Blair nodded. Quot not so much i Reck on for not going in the eight boat As for not doing what other folks did. However them who Ever try to trouble Ches Harding �?T11 live a rough time. I quot you think lies Sech a game fighter a inquired Jack storm with Lively interest. Quot that May be too. But what i meant was there a them on the fist who believe in Ches for All his lonesome ways and wont see him put upon. For my part i reckon he a More sinner against than quot i guess you re half right Jim a admitted judge Carboy with diplomatic Concession quot More a half right. But Mark my words a and the judges voice Rose to the rotund swell which denoted his purpose to be More than commonly impressive a a thrill be the devils own time on the Flat some Day and that air Duck la be King pin and starter of it. I never know a no such silent sulky cuss As that mooning round but that he kicked up pct Skiler he in the Long it will be seen from this that there were differences of opinion respecting Chester Harding at Bullion Flat and it can not be denied that there was some reason for it chapter n. Miss tins al. It was in a magnify lost theater that Chester Harding first saw Here a theater grand in Sise and tasteful in decoration. It had Only _ lately beef opened and waa one of the Lions con of the fed Den City. Herding went there to while away to Idle hour and in order perhaps that he might see All there waa to be seen before leaving san Francisco. His visit time he fell i straying that night into the cosmopolitan theater t r. 1 quoth. And yet perhaps it it yet perhaps it was the turning Pon in his existence. Others who Wen the from Bullion Flat said afterwards feat from night Harding waa transfigured. A of chandeliers with Golden in cutwork ing fee galleries sad ride dark velvet framing the boxes could hardly Surprise him. Nor was there much to astonish whatever there might to admired in the rows of handsomely dressed women who gave brilliancy to the audience. Neither could the drama itself which the manager was pleased to style quot a grand legendary fairy spectacle a move Harding seriously from his equilibrium. All these splendours together with Tho resonant orchestra the dazzling scenery Rich in dutch Metal and Gold foil the sanguinary and crested Baron the villain of the play the iridescent month its hero the demons who went through traps Vampire and other one blood red Demon with a Long nose being especially conspicuous the fairies who brought order out of chaos of whom the quot Queen of the fairy Bower was the Large climbed and voluptuous principal the quot amazonian put Yang a who went through unheard of Maneu vers with massive tin Battle axes and Spears a All these failed it must be owned to startle or. Harding from his propriety. He had seen Auch things or things very like them before. And yet he was taken off his feet to use the metaphor and swept away captive by a very torrent of emotion excited by miss tinsel. She was Only a Cory Phee that is she was but one among the minor subordinates of the Ballet. Her Advent was accomplished As one of the quot sprit Esaf the Silver she had to come Chasse zing Down the stage and never raised her eyelids before most demurely cast Down until she was close upon the footlights. But when those eyelids did go up it was Well As judge Carboy after warn used to say it was just like Sunrise Over the mountains at Boones Barf a girl with a mass of Bright hair almost red it looked by Daylight and Large Gray eyes that looked As Black As soot by the gds but took on More tender hues by Day a girl with a figure that was simply perfection and yet one who with All her arc Ness seemed to have no vanity. She had Many Dainty White skirts one above another like an Artichoke of Fluffy and diaphanous texture and although these it can not he denied were perilously Short somehow miss tinsel did not look in the least immodest. All the men from Bullion Flat knew it was miss tinsel since the quot Queen of the fairy Bower addressed this charming figure More than once As quot Zephyr ind a and a reference to the play Bill thereupon at once established her indent. What strange magnetism there was about this girl Harding and indeed All who looked at her found it hard to define. Perhaps apart from her Lovely eyes and hair and her exquisite figure it was because she always seemed to be drawing away that she proved so fascinating. Even when she advanced straight toward you she seemed forever to Retreat. By what Subtle and skillful instinct of coquetry miss tinsel was enabled to convey this impression can not Here be explained. That she did convey it was universally admitted. It appeared however on inquiry that her dramatic Powers were of the aright est. Her Beauty and Charm were such feat the manager would gladly have put her Forward could he have seen his Way to do so. But her us Weess had been so moderate when the Experiment was tried in one or two of the quot walking ladies of the farces that it was thought Wisest to let her be seen As much and heard As Little As possible. When Harding last saw her that night she was going up to a Hulise on one foot the other pointing vaguely at nothing behind the intoxicating eyes turned up with a charming simulation of pious Joy and the Cherry lips curled into a smile that showed a Lenty of pearls below. She vanished from is gaze in a glory of red fire amid the blare of gongs and trumpets while the quot blood red Demon went Down to the bad place under the stage through a trap and the quot Queen of the fairy Bower a with felicitous compensation ascended to of the flies. After this Harding went to his hotel and reflected. That a Timon like himself a misogynist indeed of the first water should fall in leva at first sight with a Ballet girl certainly furnished matter for reflection. But reflection did not prevent Timon from seeking an interview with his unconscious enslaved the next Day. Even cold and soured natures May become under some incentives enthusiastic and ingenious. Harding found out where miss tinsel lived Learned that she usually came from rehearsal at two called consequently at three and coolly sent in his name telling the servant that the Young lady would know who he was. As he hoped the device got him admittance. The Gin supposed he was some one from the theater whose name she had not caught or had forgotten. It was a very Plain and Humble room almost As Bare and forbidding perhaps As the inside of Harding stent on the Knoll and yet How glorified was the place wife fee purple atmosphere of Romance miss tinsel was As simply equipped As her room a gown of dark stuff wife a hit of color at the Throat and that was Alt. Harding saw that she was not quite so a rect physically As he had thought Ana this strange As it May seem instantly Inow ased his passion for nor. Nothing could make her figure other than Beautiful or impair the Luster of her eyes but the fair creature had a Little Range of freckles across her Delto ite nose and Cheeks and her liar by Day an eared As has been said before nearly Rad. Or natural smile on the other hand As distinguished from her stage smile which was merely intoxicating was almost heavenly and it was not made less so by an occasional look that was grave almost to sadness. Quot sit he was standing Stock still and silent in the Middle of the room. Quot you Conie from the theater done to Yon a it was a Sweet voice Sweet and lows too Low in truth which was one of the reasons of its failure in the drama one of those thrilling contralto voices most magnetic and charming when heard by one alone or close by but which lost their magnetism and Charm if strained to fill the ears of a crowd. Quot not yes that is i was there last night. I saw you there a he replies stupidly. Quot last night of yes. But Why do you want to see me to Day a this is a hard question to answer so he tries evasion. Quot did you get a bouquet a quot a perfect love a Beauty it was thrown at my feet but i gave it to her of quot gave it to Kerf quot miss de Montague done to you know the a Queen of the fairy Bower she gets ail fee quot of she does does Sha a a certainly. A she is be principal you know. Her engagement Calls for All fee a quot even when they Are plainly intended for somebody else a quot a but they ought t to be intended for somebody else. Al any one to so silly As to think somebody else ought to have a Hplu one has to be punished. Then it k 1 hint re be ---sj-12� a quot or his Flowers. They always in to Heaters if you re Fate at n Kaw or if you keep the stage then you mind. Miss de Montague is a dear Good soul. She took the bouquet for the look of the thing you know that s business but she gave me half the Flowers when we got quot does she live Here then a quot Why to be sure. Yote know we always go to the theater together. Only for her i should be quite quot and do you like this kind of thing a lie asks clumsily. She bursts into a merry laugh. Quot like it Why i get my living by it. We All have to live you know and in be no one to look out for me but myself and a she pauses suddenly having caught his Eye fixed upon her with a gaze of passionate admiration. This first Calis up the look of Gravity we have Ftp Ken of and then brings the color sharply to her face. It also reminds her of the somewhat Peculiar character of the interview. The instant after she resumes As if continuing her sentence quot did you come Here to ask me that a a no a he replies bluntly. Quot i never thought of the question until the moment before i asked quot please Tell me then a she proceeds with gathering Surprise quot what did you come for a he hesitates a moment moved by the superstition or the honest feeling that he must Tell her no word of untruth and then quietly answers quot i am not sure that i quot not sure that you know a quot perhaps then you la go away and when you Are sure a quot come Back again a hazards he. Quot i did no to say feat. Yon look and talk like a gentleman and if As i Hope you Are one you will know that i can to see strangers people who have no business with me and so you must excuse she has risen and moves with some dignity toward the door. Quot one moment a a he interposes. Quot forgive me you know for your part that it is impossible i should wish to offend a quot How should i you come Here to me a stranger and refuse to say what quot no i did not refuse. I Only said i was not sure that i know Why i quot then you must be crazy a she blurts out impulsively. Quot perhaps i am. I begin to think quot then i wish you would go she goes on with apprehension. Quot ill Tell you what or Bellario is Here and lie�?Ts�?0, terribly Strong a or. Bellario a he echoes. Quot yes. The a blood red Demon a you know. Did no to you see him go through the traps a Harding laughs very much amused. Quot and you mean to threaten me with the quot blood red Demon a do you a quot of no a she responds gently but again edging toward the door quot not threaten but a in a very conciliatory tone quot if you wont say what you come for and wont go a wave a quot but i will a he says gravely. Quot will Widen a quot will both. I will say what i came for and then i will go quot i done to mean to be rude you know a she puts in softening. Quot nor i. Now i will Tell you. I came because i could not possibly stay away because you Drew me toward you wife an irresistible Force a quot in a sure i did no to she protesto indignantly. Quot unconsciously of course. You May think me foolish wild if you please. I can to help that. You will know better in time. I come to you saying not a wrong word thinking not a wrong thought. There is nothing again me. At Home i was a gentleman. I ask leave to visit you respectfully As a Friend nothing quot but Why a she asks bewildered. Quot because i Admire you greatly inexpressibly and i must Tell you one turns scar-1 Utaji pow. Quot but i shall never Tell you this hot again or any thing else in words you do not choose to hear. All i ask is the leave now and then to see and to speak with this was very embarrassing. Had he said he loved her and at first sight she would have turned him away. She would have distrusted both his sincerity and his motives. But he did not say this. On the contrary he offered in explicit terms it would seem not to say it. She therefore naturally took Refuge in generalities. Quot but what you ask wont be possible. What would people say thisi3a very bad a scandalous country. I mean. What would miss de Montague think or or. Bellario a quot what people will say or think hardly needs to be considered a said Harding steadily quot since in a week i shall have gone to my Home in the mines. You wont be troubled with me Long twice More perhaps. Only once if you prefer it. All shall be exactly As you wish it. Is not that fair a miss tinsel was saved the present necessity for replying to a question or coping with a situation both of which she found extremely perplexing since at this juncture the door opened and admitted the quot Queen of the fairy Bower and the quot blood red Demon a who had apparently been out for a morning walk. To Harding s Surprise the quot Queen was a Motherly looking woman of forty five and the quot Demon a weak eyed Young Man with a pasty White face and some fifteen Jears younger. Both were much Over dressed Ana both stared vigorously at Harding the quot Queen with an air intended to represent fashionable raillery the quot Demon a with haughty Surprise. But the visitor avoided explanations that might have been embarrassing by bowing Low to the company and passing from the Toom. Chapter iii. The cup an tub up. Her real name was Jane Green. But Jane Green would never it of for the play Bill so the manager exercising his Peculiar and traditional prerogative had the Young Isay for the histrionic world and she appeared As quot Aurora a poor almost friendless girl Sha had left the Atlantic states wife an aunt who Lead been the wife of the quot property Many in the theater. Soon after the aunt died and Jane had gladly accepted fee offer of miss de Montague to live with her and by helping that lady with her dresses to Render an equivalent for her society and Protection. Harding was a Wise Man in his generation foolish As in some respects he May appear. We offer no explanation of his Swift and unreasoning infatuation because it is just such men who do just such rash and impulsive things. But he was sagacious enough to know that a Man who really wants a woman to less Likely to get her by being too Quick than even by being too slow. Women who Are interested always maintain fee contrary but this is because they want to bag their game instantly in feel mean to throw it away after r not the sex Are not Apt however a the value of what feel to Harding was Piluso in sought miss tinsel a re and while his and �1 i Tifa migration although respectful was not concealed he did not go so far As to ask the girl to become his wife. It appeared that after the fun of the current spectacle at the theater a quot great tragedian was to play an engagement there and the Opportunity was to be taken for the Ballet and pantomime Trouit a to make a tour of the mines. Miss de Montague was to go As a chief attraction and miss tinsel was to go also and among the places they were to visit was Bullion Flat. These plans left open a space of three months during which Harding could think of what he was at and miss inst l could think of what he meant and several other persons who were interested could make up their minds what to do. The first step taken by Harding on his return was highly confirmatory in the judgment of the Flat of the opinion expressed by Jack storm some Tirc before. A contract was made wife a builder and close let a the tent on the Knoll there speedily arose a cottage of fair proportions which was evidently meant to supersede the humbler Structure which for a year had formed Harding a Home. No one doubted his ability prudently to incur such an outlay. He Hasi neen saving to parsimony and he had been prosperous. But Why when a tent had so Long sufficed to him and when lie so disliked to part with Money he should go to so needless an expense was so obscure that to accept Jack storms solution impugning Harding a sanity was the easiest and consequently the most popular Way of solving the Enigma. The cottage was built notwithstanding and it was soon the subject of general remark that Harding was becoming More genial and quot sociable than before. He astonished judge Carboy and Jim Blair by asking them to drink one night at the quot Bella lie smiled affably and passed the time of Day with Jack storm Ano his other companions when they met to begin work on the claim for the Day. He ordered Champagne for the crowd on the evening when a Green tree was Lashe to the roof tree of Bis cottage on the Knoll and at last he raised wonder and sur Frise to their Perihelion by actually giving a Louse warming. Quot i know a it All along a affirmed judge Carboy that night to his familiars. They were taking a cocktail at the quot Bella Union by Way of preface to quot bucking against or. Copperas Bank a i know a it All along. He a got a wife out East and she a a Corning out to Jine him in the new quot is that the a us think you talked of that he was ashamed of judge a laughed Jim Blair. Quot it looks like it for Sartino he never Saad nothing about quot a Man May git married a retorted the judge with judicial acumen quot and vit do us think else to be ashamed of Mayn t he there a been murderers and horse tie pcs stretched Afore now who had wives Hainet there and the last Chap the boys Hung to a 11 time up to Redwood he had three wives did no the and they All come to the fun and with this triumphant vindication of his position the judge sternly deposited half a paper of Fine Cut in ins Mouth and started for fee luxurious apartment of or. Copperas. Next morning Bullion Flat was in a flurry of excitement and pleasurable anticipation. The quot grand cosmopolitan burlesque Ballet and spectacle troupe had arrived and were to play in the theater attached to the quot Bella it was not however until the succeeding afternoon that Chester Harding called upon miss tinsel at the same hotel. I twas pm Good sign that that Young lady Eitl tilted at the first sight of him what she first said was another a a you have not been in a hurry a she pouted quot to Cafeo and see quot i supposed you would be very Bush a said he smiling and devouring her with ids eyes. Quot were you so anxious to have me come a quot anxious a she repeated and then added illogically quot i supposed you would please he nodded. Quot and How do you like Bull ion Flat a quot i think it Ever so pretty Only i done to like the Earth All torn up and such ugly holes and quot we have to get at the Gold you know a he explained quot even at such a Cost. But the hilltops anyhow Are she looked through a window and pointed at the most picturesque Eminence in the neighbourhood a the Knoll. Quot that is your House a she observed shyly. Quot yes. Do you like it a quot i think it Lovely situation and quot and How did you know it was mine a quot of a she said touching a we show folks see a great Many people besides being seen by them and in be heard a lot about Harding a face darkened a Little. Quot then you be heard that in a not much liked a quot in be heard that some say so. But what of that miss de Montague says she give a Fig for a Man everybody Speaks Well of and she quoted something from a comedy the school fur quot will you Tell me what people say a he inquired curiously. Quot of that you Are gloomy reserved and live All alone and that you Are Are not extravagant and feat you Haven triad a very Nappy quot that last at least if True is a misfortune rather than a quot its All misfortune ainu to it a said fee girl sagely. Quot people done to make themselves. There a or. A Clono now. He tji inks nature really meant him for a great Warrior somebody like Napoleon you know. And instead of that he a Well he Calls Hirt self a professional gentleman but the boys Call him a Tumbler. I suppose it we it uld be much grander to kill people than to jump through a Vampire traps but you see he did no to get his choices any More than i quot then you did no to want to go on the stage a quot no indeed. It was jut for bread. Aunty was a a second old woman a and they got me in for a Utility a As they Cah it. There was no one to care for me and i was glad to earn an honest living but like it never a quot you say there was no one to care for you a Sard Harding gently. Quot had you no Friend a no parents a Jane reddened painfully and the sad look came quickly into her face. Quot my Mother is dead you see a she replied with hesitancy quot and and i d rather not speak of this any More a surely a he exclaimed hastily quot in be no right to cat Chize you. Pray forgive my asking at All. I ought to have been More Cara Ful. 1 know what trouble is and How to feel for those she looked at him earnestly. Quot you have suffered yourself. Then they weft right when feel said yours had not been a Happy immy., quot i have no right to whine but Happy no far from it Ajane a Lovely face took on ite softest and tenderest expression. Quot they a Aid that lately you have been Han.

The Grace and Beauty of her figure were made conspicuous by the movement and Harding paused a moment before he replied quot people like to be cheerful i suppose and people like others to be like themselves i know. It is True that i have been unhappy that my life has been morose and solitary. How much this has been my own fault and How much that of others need not be said. But it is also True that of late i have been far happier. Shall i Tell you Why a his voice was deep and Earnest and something in his eyes made the girl Crimson again and turn her own to the Distant Hills. Quot if you please a she faltered in her Low musical contralto. Quot shall i Tell you too Why i have built that cottage you Are looking at a be Wenton with increasing earnestness. Quot it is 1 Oca use it has been my Hope my prayer that this sad lonely life of mine was nearly Over. It is because i have believed that after much pain and doubt and bitterness my Trust in men might be brought Back through Zuj love for a woman. The cottage it is for you Jane. I love you Jane. Do you Heer me from the moment i saw you i loved you. I resolved to ask you to marry me. Jane will you do so a while lie spoke the color had been fading steadily from her face and when he stopped the girl was Ashy Pale. He looked at her anxiously and impatiently. Quot in in am so sorry a she muttered at last As if each word were a separate pain.
