Hut before the order for Anton's com

man arrived on the scout) for whom
every fiody made way as if by instinct.
This was none other than Mr. Joel Wil
cox, tho richest man in Sonoma County,
an uncultured, pxid-naturod, largo
hearted, "Krasp-my-hand-tltflit" down
Katie r. licet had made an Immense
fortune in I'altfornia and spent his days
In the valley at a larRO and luxuriously
appointed house which he had built In
tho midst of a beautiful estate.

on ill!- to the fact that he paid very lit
tle attention tu outward apHarauccs,
He liked a man of his own ilk, but he
hated, as he said, "them as put on airs
bokas they'd mod a bit o" money."
Accompanying him was Vclasqtiot. the
man whom Wilcox despised above all the
many despicable pooplu he had mot in
tho course of a lonj life limit.
"Hello," said Wilcox, in his free and
easy manner, to tho Justice, "what's
Ho had like every one else heard all

Tho old gentleman walketl across to
tho Justice and sat down beside him

der rtdatisl to him tho moro recont de

When Wilcox heard that Anton Ituy
man was charged with tho murder ho
oxcitodly Jumped from his seat and
"Why you tbunderln' blockheads, you
aru not colni; to commit an honost
man llko Keyinau for tho murder ot
Mario Dularo, Just because ho hail a few
aiif;ry words with him and happened to

"Thoro seoms to bo no alternative,"
said the Justice, "but you may rost as
sured ho will have a fair trial."
"Ah, by od. that ho shall," said thu
blutl Yankee, "If it takes every cent of
money I've not to secure It, Dammit,
he's no moro guilty ' that crime than
his Mxir llttlo baby Is."
As ho spoko these words whether In
tentionally or not his (-lance wandered
towards olasiUOZ, who was In the
room, and II struck him that Velauuz
k I need.
Then he crossed over to Anton and
said: "Cheer up old lsiy and keep a tfood
heart. If there's any Justice in those
parts at all you shall K''t It"
Then turning' to Velasquez, bo said:
"And as for you, I dupiost) now that
Ditlaro Is out of the way you are pleated
at the bottom of your hard heart.
You'll bo trying next to turn thu widow

Volasquc listened apparently quUtly,
hut inwardly (nil of Interest, and said
as politely ns he could: "I fall to com
prebend what I have ever done to merit

Thl i threw a new light on altalrs and
Mrs Dclaru was amtizod. Why had hvi
husband given Velasquez a note at
thirty days for such an amount of
money? She was utterly unable to
solve the rldillo, and at onco sought her
tdd friend for aid.
This Is what old Jool Wilcox, the
millionaire, s.ild about It: "You kin
di peii I upon it, Mr. Dolaro, that there
is moro in this than you or 1 know at
present. This nolo that's a lyln' I.,

Mrs. Delnro was much stirred by old
Mlcox s words, and II was with a
blanched (aco that alio looked opal the
big millionaire, and said "Mr. Wilcox,
tlo you think (or ontt moment that I.eon
Velasquez had any thing to tlo with the
death o( my poor husband?"
."Yin I do," was tho reply, "and
w hat's more I'm going to Und out Just
how much ho did her to do with it, or
my name ain't Joel Wlloox."
"I don't llko to think this without
somo gttotl grounds for thu Imllof." said
tho beautiful woman; "but I will
nrouse myself at onco. I am unusually
quiet and do not as a rule Jump at cun

here hor voice became choked with
emotion and passion. Tho quiet, pas

"That Is tho olow I must follow," ho
said to tho widow. "In tho meantime,

Such was tho compact which Jool
Wilcox nml the widow of Dolaro on- j

many woary years of uilnglod hus (
and dbwippointment, thoy kopt tho uuu

Thn mxl morning Jool Wlleox
started (or San I'ranclsco. to learn what

I'or this purj oso he . .lit ., at toe ot

So Wilcox naturally thought this
would ho a g-ool starling point.
On entering ll.o oiBce, ho Inquired for
Mr. l'-..mlll, and was usberod Into the
gentlmnn'a prliato room.
As soon as Mr. t'randall hoard tho

Tor Joel Wilcox was a well-known
man In Krlsco, his enormous wealth
being a matter o( (mbllc gossip, and
the little Ivnv-oytsl broker thought ho
was In (or a good stroke of business, hit
ot course surmising thai lb.) millionaire
was on the lookout for 1111 investment.
Ill this, as we know, he was doomed
todtviptmlntmont, Tho broker foresvw
what was coming when Mr. Wilcox
"Do you know If I.eon Velasquez Is In
town, Mr Crandall?" Now. the
broker and Velaxiies were "Ihisoui
cronies," having workitl many quiet
and sometimes nbndy deals together.
Still, the broker was by far tho
hrowtlur of the two men, and while
Velasquez brought the lambs to the
laughter Crandall managed to catch
most of the blood. Therefore, when
this question wns suddenly sprung upon
him he was diH-ltltslly surprised, Itul at
the same time was tot) old In the busi
ness to lietray any undue agitation.
"Mr. Velasquez. Ah, yes, I rciiicmb"r
him now; the gentleman from San l'ao
la?" he said, with assumed iudillore tiro.
"Hut why do you come here in search of
that gentleman, Mr. Wilcox: It Is hardly
probable that 1 should be aware of tho
fact liven If ho did happon to bo In town.
Ills calls hero are oxcetsllngly few nml

sat at Ills iltmk in Hie public olllce.
"Well." said Mr. Wilcox. "I havo
been Informed that he had a good matiy
business transactions with you and thai
this would be a likely place to tlml him."
"Yes," the litiln broker responded,
"Mr. Velasquez certainly did have somo

"I am not thu sort of man to bo it

'You have of course, heart) of my
friend Mario Delaro's murder near his
own wlnu cellars on the night of
the twenty-llrsl of last mouth?"
"Yes, I did hear ot the sal occur

continued: "Tho week Itoforo that inur

"Yes, I hollovn It hr.," replied
Crandall; "hut to make sure I will step

sold the stock for Velasquez and in

He was not left to his thoughts vory
long, for, no sooner wai ('ran tail's back

to come Into thu room with n bundle of

dividual got clom enuugh to Mr. Wtlcux

Without waiting until ho was seated
he Informed Mr. Wilcox that the stock

At this Mr. Wilcox rose to leave, for
bu felt that the Interview with tho
clerk would serve his purpose fur tietter
than any quantity ot talk with the un
principled broker. With many jhjIIW)
farewells and expression of hop for

Dr. Charles Wild prnclict-d motliclnn
In HrsHikline, Msss , in tho days when
people insisted upon taking largo doses
of calomel, rhubarb, Jalap, plcrn, ipts-ac,
antimony and countless other drugs,
and oil being blistered nml bled. The
doctor was tsjtial to tho occasion, and
gave his patient their money's worth
of physio and service w hen they could
stvure his attendance.
I'or the do. tor was a dllllcult man lo
find, ami, wh.-n found, to Impress with
the itlea Uiat ho was actually needed.
I'nless the easo was represented as a
matter of life and tlettli, ho was apt to
delay bis visit until tho patient had re
covered or tiled. Those who hunted for
him, knowing bis habits of going from
one patient to another, without going
home for a day or 11 night, used to go
thlough tho slieeUs looking for "old
Sal," his sorrel mare, and his familiar
old buggy, Htamllng lieforo somo house
Hut such was tho publlo eonlldeiico In
him, thai In ordinary lllneet people
would wait his tardy lsll rather than
send (or another phvslcinu. I
Tho author ot "SkeU-hes of llrooV-'
llnti" tlescrlbs him as entering a house
in the breety way, stamping olf the
snow or thu mud, throwing otf his over
coat mid letting down his black leather
pouch, with noise enough for three men.
Ills salutation, Uttered In a deep, grulf
voice, wai likely to Ik, If the utlent

"Well! w-!l! what kind of n kick-up
