JACOB RENWYCK. a mul- timillionaire New Yorker, bad gone to Texas In order to gtraighten out several busi- ness complications. Besides bis north- ern interests, he connected with many new enterprises in the southwest hi Arizona, cattle and cattle lands in the Lone Star State and projected railroads through the cotton belt. For his vast schemes had prospered until his ideas as to their conduct began to clash with those of old Bill Williams, the great Texan land speculator and cattle king, with whom Renwyck had for many years Joined forces, the one controlling the east, tbe other the Vest. Correspond- ence bad proved unsatisfactory; there- fore the New Yorker determined to set- tle the business personally by. a flying trip to' San Antonio. Tex., where be intended to beard the lion in bis den. Miss Harriet Renwyck. the only daughter of the capitalist, had induced her father to take her him on the trip. She was a beautiful and' high spirited girl of twenty years, the idol of the old man's heart, and the one person on earth who could manage him even when temper reached the outbreaking point. On their ar- rival at. San Antonio they learned.that Mr. Williams had departed the week before for his cattle ranch, which lay about 200 miles to. toe westward. He was not expected to return for some time, so Mr. Renwyek determined to follow hlni without delay. The two travelers took a branch road which carried them to a point twenty miies distant from the ranch, and they engaged horses, a camping outfit and; a guide for the balance of the trip. Both were used to the saddle, and to Miss Renwyck this' long free gallop across the plains new and exhilarating experience. It was spring- time, when tbe prairies are at their best, rolling away like some: vast green sea as- far as the eye "can-breach. The sun. which in another month would parch the grass to a dry and crackly stubble, now sent out a lazy, comfort- able -v .i-'mth. which was further tem- pered by an intermittent breeze; They herds'..of browsing cattle that, munched the grass or lifted their beads ill 'the riders cantered op. Once they'-'thread- ed their way through" the very center of a and the a wo- man's inborn -dread 'of cows, grew alarmed the proximity of the sur- "bat the: guide assured her that there was .least danger "unlest'sbe projicked with the inayericks." This, being, inter- a warning against molest- ing the. ealyes. a sport which was .not to Sliss ,Renwyck's .taste for .various, reasons, soon lost, all fear of the sad eyed brutes before her. -Toward sunset they came in sight of Bill Williams' ranch, and, having skirt- ed a wife fence for several miles, they entered at last and the mud thatched palace of -the Texan cattle the jovial despot himself came out to welcome them. The two financiers, each approaching Dr. Osier's line of. uselessness, formed a complete antithesis. The New York- er was a typical financial potentate. educated, cultivated, cold, deliberate In speech, calm ID demeanor, composed in method, faultless in every detail of bis dress. His features- .were -promi- nent and severe, tbe ruddy hue of hiss face relieved 'by a gray mustache and side whiskers. In every step and movement he showed the unmistaka- ble hallmarks of birth, breeding and prosperity. Yet there was not a bold- er, more daring operator on the ex- change than, Renwyck. Old Bill Wil- liams was a man of giant stature. In- different as to dress, careless as "to language. His education bad been gained In tbe saddle aad smacked of tbe leather. few books, but be knew "cattle nod -men. and there was not a. better Judge of land values and the merits ordemerits of a scheme in the west. His shrewd and kindly face was clean ghaven. round and joy- ful, Ht by a pair of steel gray eye? that twinkled continually in harmony with the genial which caused the careless to lose sight of tbe firmness of the clean cut lips and tae square, resolute man who was known and honored in seven states and loved by every ranchman within j a radius of a .thousand miles. Keu- j, wyck was; Ice. Williams fire, so that au fond there was not a great deal of i difference between their methods, for heat and- cold both burn. Mr. Williams, who. like all Texans. j was the soul of hospitality, offered bis guests tbe" best his ranch afforded, aad neither Miss Renwyck nor her father found rourmur. When supper was over and Miss Harriet, who. was sleepy from her long ride, was shown to a simply furnished but clean, fresh room, the two magnates sat down to discuss their business differences. At the outset they locked boras, and mid- night found them as far as ever from an amicable settlement "Good Lord, the Texan laugbed. "it's after- 12 o'clock, and i we're a sight of beauty sleep. Let's stop buckin" an' take a drink. That's somethin' no honest man can j squabble over unless the whisky's bad. which this ain't. Here's how! Turn In, but don't thrasb-around your bunk j all night We. can do our in j the But-'" Mr. Renwyck did "thrash around bis bunk" all night, and not I once did he close bis eyes. On several crucial points be was hi the wrong, and no one knew it better than him- j self, yet with bulldog tenacity he clung to his false position. With loss i of sleep his irritation increased, and morning found him eager for the-fray.; and more insistent than ever In his j unjust claims. i Breakfast over, the two went at it hammer and tongs, but without adjust- ment of the difficulties. The New Yorker's craft and legal knowledge were wrecked on- the rocks of the .Texan's common -sense "and humor, and at last Mr. Renwyck's temper burst all bounds. In one short angry severed every business in- terest with his host, and former partner and.turned that- gentleman into a calm but remorseless enemy. The horses were-ordered without de- lay, and. greatly to Miss Harriet's re- gret for .there was much that she wanted to see- the ranch, they left the place at once, in order that the angry Mr. Renwyck might get to the distant railroad by 2 o'clock and hurry fast as .steam and his hope of vengeance could carry him. However, they were not to reach that! point without experiencing another phase of Texas life, with its infinite possibilities of excitement and sur-; prise. Their wagon had broken down, and the outfit "with the guide and the oth- had been left behind at the ranch, with instructions? to follow after so soon as things were put in guide was necessity, for the route to the railroad station lay straight south "over the prairie. There was a range of hills to, the right, and with that and a even such a tenderfoot as Jacob Renwyck could scarcely lose the way. The two cantered along hi the- pleas- ant morning. The. enjoyment of the j ride greatly mollified Mr! Renwyck's exacerbated temper, although it in no-1 wise altered his determination to make i Williams suffer on account of the rup-; 'tare.' As for Miss Harriet she thor- j oughly enjoyed it- and only regretted i that the experience wouid soon tertni- i nate in the luxurious-monotony of her father's private car. Prom time to; time her father: left her and rode to the top of one of tbe hills to the right; to. survey tbe country and to make sure, in so far as be could, that they were gomg in the right direction. About midday they overtook a great herd of cattle urifting along the prairie j as they fed. Mr. Renwyck was on the i bill at the time. So far as the gin could see, the rolling prairie was dotted i with hundreds of steers. There were perhaps In the bunch. They were j grazing peaceably 'enough on the short j grass.

'AT on the other'-side of the herd two cowboys had been lazily lying on tbe grass ha the shade cast by the motionless bodies of their ponies.

The morning shift had gone back to camp, and the afternoon gang bad not yet ar- rived, so there were only these men watching tbe herd. The quiet had made them relax their usual vigilance.
