just too sweet for any use. Talk

laughter and a loud guffaw from a
clump of trees not twenty feet
away. I realized- in a moment
that I had been made the victim
of n practical joke. ;' Tho-girl, my
girl, -my Sarah, had deliberately
planned with sompof the' boys 'in
the gulch to make, mo ridiculous
and wound my pride ami sensibil
ities, which were very great. My
heart was soroly wounded and 1

ed exactly how tho trick, had been
iluycd. Ono Sunday, morning 1
ay apparently' dozing in my bunk
and overheard thu incr. relate tho
circumstances connected with the
only tragedy of my life It seems
that some of the l(oys down the
gulch had become jealous of my
attentions to Sarah nnd resolved
in some lmiuuur to give me a set
back. A mountain ton had been
prowling around tho camp the
wintur before and was shot one
morning while iu the act of taking
a quartor of beef from tho comer
or a cabin whero it was hanging.
It had been carefully skinned and
stuffed iu lunanner to maku it ap
pear very lifelike, thoy placed it
on tho trail in position where 1
shot it, nnd-by moans of thread
attached to its tail, with men con
cealed iu the willows on either
side of the trail to null the threads
they had no difliculty iu whisking
its tail from Bide to side. I
wouldn't have cured if Sarah hadn't
been in tho plot. Hut that thought
made me furious. To think that
she , W.oll to make a long sto
ry as short as possible, 1 sulked
awhile and rejected every effort at
reconciliation, finally sold out and
took a trip to the Kust mid was
gono a your. Hut 1 uover forgot
iui-idi. She was in my mind con
tinually, and i rosolved to return
and mako it all up. i came back
to Helena and hurried across to
Avuluiiunu as fast as a good horse
could carry me i went to the
cabin full of hope and pleasant an
ticipation. A great deal of cloth
ing was hanging out to dry, and as
t got near oiioitgh i saw that tho
