Well have liners painted thee in thy yellow hair Matron with thy Sun bronzed brow thy Majestic air. Thy rounded breast thy Broad full Waist thy Strong arms Brown and Bare. But thou Art lovelier by far than poet Ever Sung. Or Painter with Bis gorgeous dyes upon the Canvas Hung Moet Bountiful most Beautiful thy season Matea among.

The Golden Morns the Crimson Eves the Cloud spent Blue of skies the Green of Meads Tho yellow Fields where the Rich Harvest lies gods liners they that paint thy charms with More than artist dyes Spring tide is the years Gay youth summer is its prime in Faith we watch the growth of Spring in Hope the summer time but Mellow autumn like god s love showers gifts on every clime out of the blazing summer Sunshine into the Cool room comes Krin with her waving masses of Chestnut hair As untidy As usual her lips warm and parted. Her Muslin dress of a it a Leazure is slightly crumpled while two Darle stains that Shine conspicuously upon it betray her visit to the Strawberry bed. A Corinna my dear a protests her Mother perfectly aghast at her appearance. A yes Darling a says Krin interrogative by end glances suspiciously up and Down her entire until she too describes the fatal Marks when she blushes the dainties Crimson. A where have you been a a mrs. Crofton roes on when she has recovered breath and what have you been doing your hair is All Over your head and your dress but let me introduce you to your Cousin lord Rowden who has come to spend a few Days with us. Phoebus Apollo has been making free with Krins adorable Eves to such an extent that up to this the drawing room has appeared to her immersed in Semi darkness and she remained totally unaware of the strangers presence. Now indeed with a faint Start the turns and peering through the imaginary Mist sees him standing on the Bearth Rug regarding her with amused scrutiny. He is a tall fair Young Man decidedly food looking with but a very slight tinge of he fashionable boredom about his face and figure. He has Large indolent Gray eyes a Toady Mouth and Chin and an irreproachable Brown Mustache. He has been watching Krins Entrance and general deportment with languid interest up to the present moment but now conies Forward with something like eagerness in his manner to receive the hand she shyly oilers him. He is about to speak to her when Rio Day a voice Sweet and rippling rings in Between them their hands part and Corinna Falls Back a step or two. A Corinna a says Rhoda mild wonderment in her tone a where have you been dear your hair is utterly wild and untidy hair is so unbecoming to Krin blushes such a sudden Sweet transition of color As it is and puts both hands to her head in a vain Endeavor to subdue the refractory locks. With her arms so raised and the startled half ashamed expression on her face it occurs forcibly to Saxon How More than pretty she is. A i often think a he says in his slow quiet Way a How much More comfortable and and natural a woman must feel when her hair defies fashion and Falls into disgrace. I have rather a fancy for rebellious hair Corinna sinking into a chair smiles in voluntarily and looks pleased. Rhoda smiles too quot but does not look pleased. A a have Yuju a she says mildly. A i think eventually you would tire of it. It May be becoming to some styles but a a i think it is becoming to Corinna a says lord Rowden still slowly and in a tone that but for its calmness might be Well perhaps so a returns Rhoda critic amp by a it certainly softens her face and aha How do you think the Hall looks Saxon a a i can hardly judge As yet. I got but a Bare glimpse at it this morning still it struck me As being considerably out of repair that is great parts of it. It should have been More closely looked after but my Uncle was always careless. It appears to me goom too and dark almost unwholesome of this place mrs. Crofton is so infinitely More cheerful in every a moorlands is the prettiest place perhaps a says mrs. Crofton complacently a if Yon can put a very Ordinary House in comparison with a Castle but then we have no grounds Worth mentioning. Rowden Hall ought to be the leading place in the county Saxon. I should think a very Little trouble would set it to a i wish to l would try and help me a says Baxon suddenly. A if you would All come and look it Over and suggest a woman has so much better taste than a a we shall be delighted a said Thoda prettily. A i have often longed to see the Hall and now my wish will be have been All through it a declares i Corinna speaking almost for the first time 1 a Over and Over a have you really a exclaims Saxon with awakened interest turning toward the window where she sits a do you mean to Tell me you Ever cared to enter the Dull old place a a it is not Dull to me. I love it. Old Simon and i Are fast friends and Many hours have to and i passed together in the picture gallery. I think i could Tell you now the histories of every one of your a a a you Are fond of pictures a asks her Cousin thinking in his own mind wlm a so arming picture she Lic self is making at the present moment with her ruffled hair and Large Short seeing eyes and Muslin i and Strawberry stains and All. A a very Cine orally of old portraits. They seem to sneak to me. Of no in your gallery i like Little sad eyed Millicent Rowden the a i never knew of these expeditions of yours Corinna a says mrs. Crofton. A i done to know that you had any right to go there my dear. The House was not open to any one. I fear Saxon she has been taking rather a Liberty with you in your absence. A a repeats the Young Man warmly a nay rather she has done me an Honor. I shall like the old place better now i can imagine her form flitting through it. How Lyce a ghost you must have looked Corinna moving through the closely shuttered rooms with Only Here and there a Fleck of Light to guide the Way and with so old a Servitor behind. Were you not afraid some ghosts More real would Rise to Challenge your approach a a i am not nervous a says Corinna with a slight shake of her head and a shadowy gleaming smile. A week a fortnight three weeks pass away and still the slight repairs going on at the Hall do not Complete themselves or else lord Rowden feels no disposition to quit his aunt s comfortable quarters. Day after Day he lingers As though unwilling to tear himself away and into the heart of hon. Alicia Crofton has entered the delicious thought that time alone is required to see her handsome Rhoda installed mistress of Rowden Hall. This arrangement would be in every Way desirable As though the income attached to moorlands is sufficient to enable the family to keep up a showy establishment and every outward appearance of wealth still it barely coders the yearly expenses and leaves nothing wherewith to carry on a London Campaign or even a visit to those fashionable watering places which eligible Are supposed to haunt. The girls therefore have nothing but their faces to depend on and such chances As the neighbourhood May afford and certainly their Cousin Rowden is by far the richest parti that has As yet come among them. Mrs. Crofton seeing All this with painful distinctness yet like the Wise Mother that she is contents herself with watching the Battle from afar and shows no inclination to interfere or assist matters in any Way beyond encouraging Saxon to make his stay with them last As Long As possible. Meantime july is drawing to a close such a warm oppress vely sultry july As has not been Felt for Many a year and As the clock strikes four on one memorable afternoon Saxon strolls into the drawing room at moorlands. A i think i will go up and see How they Are getting on above a he says indicating his own Home by a Lazy movement of the head. A i have not been there for some Days now and they want a then ride my dear Saxon a says mrs. Crofton a the heat is a no i shall walk. It is barely two Miles from this and Wood for the most part. Of for Frost and Snow 1�?� says 8axon, smiling and raising both arms insolently until los hands reach the Back of his head. A Rhoda How do you keep so Provo kingly Cool a a i done to know a answers Rhoda sweetly a by keeping quiet i suppose. If instead of going for this Long stupid walk you would come and sit Here in this Shady room you would soon learn the but Saxon will not see the pretty invitation. A i am too restless a being for such charming repose a he says a i must be always up and doing and conscience tells me i should look More closely after my affairs. Good by Rhoda keep me in your memory while i am absent from a i will try a murmurs Rhoda tenderly and with a Friendly nod my lord departs. He has not been gone five minutes when Krin enters the room Bright and animated. A Mamma have you seen the peaches lately a a no. a then i can Tell Yon they Are really splendid. ,1 have just been examining them and they Are such a size i think Mcdonnell is the Best Gardner we Ever had done to you a a yes dear a sleepily. A and the grapes they will soon be ready for table. I could hardly keep my hands off them to Day such a Sweet delicate perfume too As they have spread All Over the nouse a a How you do run on a said Rhoda pet Tashly a and the Day so warm too do you never tire i wonder do you never feel used up or languid a a never a answers Krin with a Gav laugh. A then i think it would be All the better if you did. A Little languor would be better than the Hoy Denish manner you affect. There is nothing so unpleasant As too great an exhibition of health m a a you will exhaust yourself if you say much More a says miss Krin demurely a Mamma will you come out with me a a no my dear it is too warm and now Saxon is safely out of the Way i think i shall enjoy a Little a where has Saxon gone a a to the Hall to see How the work is a ooh i shall take a Book and sit in the veranda then it will be cooler so saying she once More seizes tire hat she has discarded and arming herself with a volume retires from the room. Running Down the stairs with her usual impetuosity she almost precipitates herself into saxons arms who to her Surprise she finds standing on the lowest step. A you Here a she cries. A Why i thought you were at Rowden by this a i got As far As your Entrance Gate when i repented myself and came Back for something guess what it a your pipe a a no you. It is a delicious walk and the Sun is going Down. We can go almost the entire Way through the Woods so put on your hat and Krin puts Down her Book without a word adjusts her hat and cheerfully prepares to follow him. So together they pass out into the glowing Golden Sunshine and taking the Side Avenue escape the drawing room windows and Are soon out of sight and alone. Through the hot parched grass across a flowery Lane Over a Stile they go into the deep Green Woods. Their words Are very few out they saunter on contentedly Side by Side and when the Stile has been crossed Saxon retains her hand in his so that Palm to Palm they continue their Way. Yet it can not be said that he is making love to her. As he does not so much As press the hand he holds Only keeping it always in the same firm clasp while Krin is conscious of nothing but that it in a Blissful Summers noon and that in the sky above her not even one faintest Leaden Streak dims the deep exquisite Blue. Before them half hidden by the giant Trees rises a Tower old and Ivy Clad. A Ftnat Tower has always had a fascination for me quot save Krin. Stopping suddenly to regard the old Pil before her. A who built it and How Long ago a a ooh hundreds of year a it must have been uncomfortable As a residence at the Best of times with All those great open slits for windows through which the wind must whistle. What is inside it i wonder a quot dust and spiders t should say. Some Day we will get the key from old Simon and reconnoitre. By the by talk of somebody Here is old 8imon. Simon have you the key of this place about you a a May master my lord i Alius carries it Here returns old Simon diving into one of his numerous pockets and producing a huge key that is almost Bright from constant friction. A will you be Long Here master my lord a he goes on wistfully As he hands the key to Saxon. A i was on my Way norne and a a then continue it a say is master kindly a i will keep the key until we meet again. Do not let me delay a i shall be up at the House again to night win a message Mayhap if you re going there you would leave it win mrs. Mason for me quot says Simon As though anxious to regain Trie treasure he is parting with for so Short a time. A i will a says Saxon and with mumbled thanks the old Man shambles off through the Woods toward his cottage where his ancient Dame is faithfully awaiting him. Rowden turning the key in the massive lock the Tower door swings easily backward and they enter. Within All is dark and gloomy though a few threads of Light Stream Down from the openings above and there is not so much dust nor As Many spiders As they had imagined. A aug How dreary a Shivers Krin and together they ascend the narrow winding stairs that Lead into the Only other room the Tower contains a Bare desolate apartment void of All furniture beyond a Stone Bench that comes out a fixture from the Wall. A i confess i am disappointed a says Krin laughing. A now for what purpose was it built a a i hardly know not As a watch Tower certainly As it does not Rise sufficiently High to betray the approach of foes. I suppose they must have thought it would look picturesque amongst the a i would like to put in windows and Oak chairs and tables a says Krin reflectively a it would be a charming place for Tea in the summer and a a loud noise followed by a decided Click interrupts her speech. A what is that a she murmurs faintly alarmed. A the door closing i a ooh is that All How loud it sounded come the place is uncanny let us go on to the but saxons face is slightly clouded. A i Hope the lock has not shot into its place a he says uneasily a it has that trick i know though i forgot All about it until a nonsense do not let us imagine evil a Krin exclaims nervously running Down the Stone Steps while he quickly follows her. But when they reach the door they find it fastened and locked against them beyond All doubt the key being on the outside. A Onoto what is to be done i should like to know a asks Krin with a White face and frightened eyes a How Are we to get out a a i done to know a says Saxon and then the Absurdity of the situation striking him he bursts into laughter sudden and irrepressible. For a moment Krin disapproves this line of conduct but presently being Young and her own laughter Ever near she too gives in and joins heartily in his merriment forgetful of the awful consequences. What will Mamma say when they arrive late for dinner How will proper Rhoda look a of course somebody will come directly to let us out a she says with conviction in her tone. A of course. You remember old Simon said he would be Back Here again to night and night with him meant Early evening without a then let us go upstairs again and wait for him above. It is so dismal but waiting docs not bring him. An hour passes slowly away. The shadows grow longer and longer. A what of clock is it now a asks Krin in a Low tone and for the Hundredth time Saxon examines his watch. A a Quarter to seven a he answers reluctantly. A ooh a moans Krin in a voice of anguish a Are we Neuer to be released How shall i Ever face Mamma and Rhoda i wish i had never seen this hateful Tower Why did you induce me to enter it a the accusation conveyed in this speech is so unjust that for the moment Saxon is silent. A How can you say induced you Corinna a he says gravely when he has recovered himself. A did you not Tell me you were most anxious to see the inside when you said that what could i do but show it to you a a nevertheless it is All your fault but for you i would not be Here a but for Simon you mean and your own a it was you opened the door a she insists a Lettish by looking All the time like a Beautiful spoiled child As she sits on the old Stone Bench her head turned petulantly from his gaze her eyes watching through i one of the openings in the Wall for any Chance passerby. A of course when you did so i went in who could have done otherwise but there where is the use of losing your temper about it i am in a dreadful scrape and i will never be forgiven that is a you need not make matters worse than they Are a said Rowden gloomily a you can not be More upset about the whole affair than i am. But a going Over to one of the windows and staring Down a even if i jumped out it would do you no Good. The fall would certainly stun me if it did no worse and to have me lying insensible out there would not help matters in the a do you suppose i want you to kill yourself a says Krin half frightened and again silence Falls Between them. Half past seven. Half past eight. The Long Summers evening is drawing to a close at last it is growing positively dark. For the last hour not one word has been spoken by. Either of them. This slow torture has proved too much for Saxon. For the past ten minutes he has been revolving a wild idea in his brain and with it before him is fast losing sight of All common sense. Not far from one of the open spaces in the Wall that represent to windows there stretches sideways the Branch of a tree sufficiently Stout indeed quot should he be Happy enough to reach it in a Spring to support his weight but the chances Are that he will not reach it. It is a terrible risk to run a risk in which failure Means a severe Accident if not instantaneous death but to saxons overwrought feelings it appears preferable that he should suffer from some broken Bones than that Krin should have to endure All the bitter reproaches that will be surely heaped upon her if they be discovered in their unsought imprisonment perhaps too even if he did come to the ground he might not altogether lose consciousness and if he could Only manage to crawl to the door and turn that unlucky key All might yet be Well. It has grown so late by this time that he has install Hope of seeing any one come to the Rescue. If matters be allowed to continue As they now Are it is More than probable they will have to spend the night in this detested Tower and that is not to be thought of for a moment so it quot Saxon a cries Krin suddenly rising to her feet a Why done to you speak i shall go mad if this goes on much longer. Have you no plan no idea of do something to get us out of this place a she lays her hand upon his Arm and raises her face imploringly to his. As he returns her gaze he sees two Large miserable tears Rise in her eyes and Roll slowly Down her Pale Cheeks. They Pierce through saxons very heart. A Ukrin Krin done to do that a lie exclaims hurriedly. A i can i will do something but do not unnerve me. Forgive me before i go child for making you so a go quot whispers Krin shrinking from him a go where a look it is quite simple a he says leading her to the window and pointing to the sturdy Branch a i shall Spring from Here and catch that i wonder i did not think of it before. I shall then descend open the door for you and set the Bird he Speaks lightly and presses her band to reassure her. But she is not to be so deceived. A to no no a she gasps trying with both hands to draw him from the window. A it is not to be thought of. No one could do it. It would be certain death. You shall not a nonsense Krin do not be foolish. I Tell you i can and will do it. Come look up and wish me Luck in five minutes i shall have you laughing at your fears. Now go away from the window and wait for me Over for a moment he hesitates then taking her face in both his hands kisses her gently. A Little later lie stands on the Stone parapet that projects from the Wall. There is a faint pause followed by a slight Rushing noise through the still air a crackling of Wood and Krin shuddering and half fainting sinks Back upon the Friendly Bench. Is it five hours or five minutes or a lifetime saxons voice rings suddenly in her ears As though sounding through deep water and looking up she finds him bending anxiously Over her. A you silly child a he says cheerfully a i do believe you fainted. Are you better now come the air will do you Good and we can make our escape at he laughs and passing his Arm round her raises her to her feet. Mechanically she follows him to the top of the stairs but there even through the falling darkness a deep red stain upon his hand attracts her notice. A what is that a she asks nervously Stop Ling Short a is it blood of Saxon you Are a Urt a and this added to All the previous excitement overcoming her she hides her face in her hands and bursts into a passion of tears. A Corinna a says Saxon quietly although his pulses Are throbbing somewhat wildly a i declare i am ashamed of you. I thought you quite a plucky Little girl and see a in Cre scratch upsets you. Why your own toy pen knife could give As severe a Cut. I assure you i done to even feel it. Come remember How late it he feels a great desire to take her in his arms and kiss away the tender tears she is shedding for him but some inward thought and something in the time and place prevent him. Although he did press his lips to hers before attempting the dangerous feat that but for his being fortunate enough to reach the tree might have resulted in his death still now that danger is at an end he shrinks from doing any thing that might bring a Blush however innocent to her Cheek. The walk Home is a very miserable one for Krin. All through the Woods and Fields she is haunted by the knowledge of what is before her and visions of her mothers Wrath mingled with Rhoda a censures uttered in the Clear Ladylike staccato she knows so Well Rise up to torture her. When they reach the Balcony that runs by the drawing room windows they pause to look in and see who Are the occupants of the room. The lamps Are burning brightly and at the furthest end sits Rhoda peacefully Reading. Mrs. Crofton also has a Book before her but her eyes do not rest upon it her face is extremely Pale and there is an anxious terrified expression about it that Speaks of unknown fears. Every now and then she glances at the door As though expecting some one. A shall i go in first a whispers Saxon As he sees his companions face of woe. A huh no no. I would rather go in alone. It will be better a says Krin. Who feels there is unpleasantness in store for her and can not Bear that he should witness her disgrace. So they leave the Balcony and reaching the Hall door which they find open Corinna enters the House alone. As she opens the drawing room door mrs. Crofton looks up quickly and seeing Krin draws a deep breath of Relief. Then fear having abandoned her heart woman like she permits anger to enter it. A where have you been Corinna a she cries rising. A what do you mean by frightening us All to death like this do you know it is nearly ten of clock with whom have you been a a with Saxon a returns Corinna fearfully. A what quot says Rhoda with hashing eyes her voice a Little shrill. A with Saxon. We did not mean it we did not know. We went into the old Tower Only for a moment but the door closed behind us and we could not get out until Saxon Flung himself from the she pauses breathless. A very Nice upon my word a says Rhoda her tone a Little thriller a a charming Story indeed. Locked up with lord Rowden in an old ruin until ten of clock. I wonder what the count will Sav a a we could not help it a says Krin looking at her Mother with imploring eyes a it was nobody a fault we would have been there now but for a and Pray if it was so easy to leap from the window Why was it not done sooner a a but it was not so easy. He might have killed himself and we hoped until the last that some one would come to release us. Mamma Why done to you speak to me a a it is most unfortunate a says mrs. Crofton fret fully a i done to know i am sure what is to be done. A the servants of course know of it and Thompson has been out looking for you for the last two hours. It will be known far and a it is More than unfortunate it is disgraceful a declares Rhoda. A from the beginning i have noticed your artful endeavours to entrap Saxon. But this is indeed the Climax. You will not win your game however let me Tell you that. No gentleman was Ever yet gained by immodest and Forward a a a immodest a Mamma do you hear that a do you hear what she says a cries poor Krin paling and trembling beneath the be under ter. A i Tell you it was a mistake a it could net be helped. Manna speak to a Lyon had better go toy nor room Corinna while i try and think cal Only of this unhappy business says her Mother coldly though in her heart of hearts she does not condemn her Krin with quivering lips and one Small shaking hand Laid us chi her bosom turns and makes her Way not to her room but into the still night air. What has she done what horrible things have been said to her can Saxon think As they do has she been immodest Forward How unjust How unbearable it All is of what shall she do for the second time this evening she Breaks into a storm of tears. Somebody lays his hand upon her Arm. A Darling have they been so a cry bad to you a says saxons Low caressing voice. Krins Effort to reply is lost a nid her sobs. A you should have let me face them first. What did they say to you a a ooh nothing that is nothing in particular. Of course Mamma was very angry she was frightened too and she said so. That is a i am sure something More than that must have been said to make you cry so bitterly. Tell me Corinna 1 have the right to know. W hat did your Mother Sav a a if Wasny to Momma. It was a ooh a says Saxon angrily and then he Luent ions Rhoda a name and puts a word before it that is not complimentary to Rhoda. A a done to cry like that a he goes on presenting a very tender tone putting his Arm around her and pressing her head Down upon his breast a a done to my pet you Are malting me awfully unhappy. Corinna he sensible Darling and listen to what 1 am going to say. I want to ask you a a what question a very drearily. A i could not ask it if you speak in that tone. It it i Krin can you not guess what it is i want to say i love you Darling with a ill my heart 1 want to hear that you love me Krin raises her head and makes a desperate Effort to escape hut he holds her last and continues rapidly a listen Tome Krin. It maddens me to see you made miserable As you Are now�?1 Cay not Bear it give me the right to look upon you As my promised wife and i will protect you against the world. No one shall dare to say a cruel word to you. Sometimes a i Don t know Why but sometimes i have thought of late that you care for me. Of love do not Tell me i am there is no answer to this tender Appeal but he fancies is it fancy that she nestles a Little closer to him. He tightens his arms round her and whispers softly a say one word Corinna Only owe to make me but Corinna is a woman and finds it impossible to express herself in so compact a form. A Are you quite sure that you love me she asks with anxious emphasis lifting her eyes to his for a moment. A quite sure. Must you ask that Darling done to you know it there is nothing in this wide world i would compare with a that is just How 1 feel toward you a says Krin innocently with a Little contented sigh. It is needless to relate what follows. Every one possessed of even a Grain of sentiment will understand for themselves. Of course they were perfectly Happy and of course Corinna shed a few More tears. They were the last she wept for Many Many months. A come a says Saxon with a laugh a if you cry any Morel shall think you Are regretting your decision. You must Stop now or i wont answer for the consequences. It is very hard lines both for me and my coat. I might As Well be under a Shower Bath and if it continues i shall certainly cat Eli cold and be Laid up with severe Krin laughs too though rather hysterically and Sueon putting his baud under her Chin turns her face up to his. A you Are better now a he says a so we will go in together and make our peace with your hand in hand they enter the drawing room and find the atmosphere decidedly Cloudy. For the first time in her life mrs. Crofton regards her Kinsman with unsmiling eyes. A ooh Saxon you have returned a she says coldly. A yes i have returned to ask a great favor of you. The greatest favor you can a a favor of me a with considerable dignity while Rhoda in the background comprehends fully and whitens with rage and disappointment. A a a yes indeed so great that i hardly know How to ask he quits Krins Side and going to her Mother takes her unresisting hand eagerly. A mrs. Crofton will you make me a present of Corinna a there is a Short pause during which mrs. Crofton draws breath and reviews the position. How utterly mistaken she has been All along Well if not Rhoda it is at least Corinna. If Blind to the charms of one daughter it is because he is so infatuated with the graces of the other. The fact that he will be her son in Law remains undisturbed and if mrs. Crofton bears a deeper affection for one of her children it is undoubtedly for Corinna. A Lyon amaze me i had no idea of this a she says at length with perfect truthfulness. A i hardly know what to say Saxon but i Hope with All my heart you will both be her voice falters a Little and she holds out her disengaged hand to Krin. The girl coming quickly to her Side throws her arms round her neck and kisses her warmly. A you Are not a bit angry now Mamma Are you a she asks with a Bright sunny smile. A i suppose i must forgive you now a returns her Mother tapping her Cheek a but you Are a pair of naughty children and succeeded in terrifying me More than i care to remember. Saxon May i beg you will avoid that Power for the future at All events until this wild girl belongs to you entirely a a i will get a new lock put on to Morrow a says Saxon and then he turns to Rhoda. A now you must wish us Joy a he exclaims cheerfully. A i do most sincerely. I wish you Joy of each other a replies Rhoda with the faintest possible pause. A of course i saw from the very first How it would end so i can not imitate Mamma s there is a certain flavor about this speech that to say the least of it is unpleasant. Every one seems to think it will be Wisdom to refrain from addressing her again. A Corinna you Are looking very Pale a says her Mother hastily quot All the excitement and fatigue have been too much for you. Bid us Good night dear and go to a a Good night a says Krin obediently and As Saxon follows her into the Hall under fire tense of getting her a Candle he whispers Only a Are you perfectly Happy now Corinna a but Corinna did not get time to answer that questions in words.

Campolio Black , october20. 1877. Our party has been reduced to sixteen men and we have erected Winter quarters about half a mile from the old Camp. Some of the inhabitants of our town had made some Money some had become discouraged and some who did not want to go Home have scattered to try their Luck in other diggings therefore a few of us who have had reasonably Good Luck and who believe we can make enough this Winter to pay expenses or More have decided to a Bole up till Spring opens. A Yuri it has Cost us a Heap of Money to Lay in a Winters Supply of provisions hut men can to work on empty stomachs. Our Supply consists of the following Tea 1 5 los. Coffee 50 lbs. Brown sugar 5o lbs. Flour about 1,000 lbs. Salt Mats �500 lbs. Indian meal. 300 lt>8. Bard biscuit 200 lbs. Salt 100 lbs. Beans 2 urls. Hearty eaters. You might at first glance imagine that we were going to run our Den in Delmonico style but it Woitt a make a landlords hair stand up to see the amount of a a fodder a sixteen Broad backed Bard working miners will get away with at one meal. There Are men in our party who will eat a loaf of bread weighing three pounds two pounds of meat and six Large potatoes and then drink three ups of Coffee and yell at the Cook quot Here you where in Thunder is my dinner a then we must take in and feed stragglers give More or less to the poor chaps who Are lighting their bad Luck and Well be Lucky if we have enough left for a Square meal by the 1st of april. We traded an Indian three pounds of Salt for two Hundred pounds of roots the other Day and they have been packed away to fall Back on. A Moi k our William breathed his last yesterday. He was a mule and in be got Money which says he was the most eccentric beast Ever placed on four feet. I think this mule must have been All through the last War and then associated with carpet baggers returning hoards and Ward politicians up to the time we got him. We made up a shake purse and bought him of a poor traveler who wanted to get Back to Vermont in time to see his Mother die. William took to us from the Start. When he had been in Cam a twelve hours he had kicked or bitten every inhabitant but one and that one was too sick to leave his shanty. I got aboard of William one morning to go up to Deadwood. The boys measured the distance with a tape line Ami they said i took a shoot of Twenty three feet and two inches saying nothing of the distance lost in going up and coming Down. The mule could throw every Man in Camp. I am sure of this because i stood by and saw him do it. When we found we ride him we thought to use him As a Paek mule hut he was a Bilker. No sooner was he loaded up than he would Arch his Hack fall Down and Roll Over till the Burden was loosened or destroyed. Ave finally gave up trying to reason with him and he became a Corner Loafer coming and going As he saw fit. One Day we sold him to an Indian for fifty pounds of Venison and ten dollars Worth of dust. The red Man tied a rope around Williams body twisted another around his nose and before the mule could realize the change of owners the red Man was astride his spinal column and feet twisted into the rope lie was a pretty fair Indian but he had never put capital into a mule before. He Rode off in High glee hut in half an hour William returned to us with a bruised mashed and bloody Corpse attached to him. We sold William several times after that but he never failed to return within Twenty four hours. The location of our town suited him the swearing was up to his Standard and he was always sure of his meals. One Day last week he went out on a still Hunt perhaps hoping to find a Friend and brother. Along toward night we heard his voice going like forty fish horns and several of the men ran Down toward the Carson City Trail to see what was up. A Little off the Road was a Grassy spot Toni prising half an acre. William stood in the Center of this and twelve Large wolves formed a Circle about him. There had been fourteen but lie had killed two. It was pretty hard work for even a mule like William to keep his tail and heels toward every part of the Circle at once and he received injuries which resulted in death yesterday. Eaton a dream. A mile and a half from us is a new one of the miners named Eaton had an adventure with the indians the other Day which will not soon be forgotten. During the night he dreamed that in line with a certain Pine tree which could be seen from Camp and half a mile beyond it was an uprooted tree. In falling the tree bad torn up its roots on one Side and left a pit in the ground. Eaton dreamed that he looked into this pit and saw several nuggets of Gold among the Earth clinging to the decaying roots. He said nothing to any of the men regarding his dream but while break first was being fire pared he shouldered his Rifle buckled on Lis revolver and started Forth to convince himself that there was a reality or simply noticing in his Midnight vision. He knew of course that the neighbourhood swarmed with indians but with Many a natural avarice he wanted the nuggets to himself if they were there and he was positive in his own mind that he was about to make a big strike. The Camp Cooks and sentinels saw Eaton As be started out but presuming that he knew his own business Best they did not Call after him. Made a Bee line for the tree and when he reached it he could no longer sea the Camp As the tree stood in a depression. The ground beyond looked the same As in his dream and he pursued his journey Over a Ridge along broken ground and finally a found himself a mile from Camp with no signs of the fallen tree and the precious nuggets. It captured. Eaton was a keen fellow and he had kept his eyes around him but yet when he began to retrace his Steps indians Rose up All around him from the cover of rocks and gullies. He found himself almost encircled in an instant and he realized at once that he was captured. The indians waited a moment to Surprise and amazement. There were Nineteen of them All in War paint and each was Well armed. A come along a said the Leader after a minute or so of pantomime and As they All started away together one of the Savages took Eaton a Rifle and a sex my pulled his revolver from his Holster. It took the Miner some time to recover his present of mind but it was absurd to think of escape As the situation then stood. After about half an hours travel and when they had reached a very rough and wild locality the indians halted for the purpose of eating breakfast and debating the Fate of Taisir Pri a al i t my a iii a Mil Orth % l Vijo
