I Gulchc a j
1 By THOMAS B. MOHTTORT I
CCofritebt, itn. by JXdSr itoty Pol. 0J ,
COUSINS was seated In front
his cabin up In Sequatchie
gulch. He was weary and discouraged,
lor he had just added another to a
long series of days of hard and futile
effort In his search, for gold, -i .;
s Presently another man came . down
the road, togged out In his Sunday at
tire. He -was humming a light air, his
-head well up and a satisfied expres
sion on his face. . Joe Cousins watched
this man for a moment, a scowl on his
countenance, then to himself he said:
"D him." : ' i
'. When the man came even with Joe
he stopped and, for an Instant, stood
silent, eyeing him closely. ' There was
something of an air of triumph in his
manner that was exasperating. -
"Well," he said, presently, "how's
"Oh, about so," Cousins replied.
' with forced calmness.
"Struck nothing yetf" - -
' "Too bad. Isn't It?" .
"Oh, - I don't know. It takes time
to strike a fortune. Things will como
around all right, I guess."
"Maybe so. I hope they will, any
how; but you can't always tell. You
missed your chanee up there at Rug
gle's Point. If you had done as I did
you would be on Easy street now,
That's true, I guess; hut I prefer
to get money -in some other yflray.
I'd rather remain poor all : my life
- than rob a helpless old man."
; .; "Oh, ' It wasn't robbery, Joe. Noth
ing like' it. It was Just merely a sharp
stroke of business. It's done evert
'day." .; v V"
"Perhaps It is; but that doesn't
make It right," Joe replied. "It may
be business in the eyes of some peo
ple, but to me It looks like dishon
esty." , - .
The other laughed. .
"Well, look at It as you please," he
said. "You ' have that right. I'm
afraid, though, you'll, never get on in
this w.orld If you're always going to
be so particular. It don't pay. Such
high notions of honor are commenda
ble no doubt, but they don't buy any
thing. - -Well, I'm off for town. Any
thing. I can do for you down there?"
I may see Miss Harmon. Just
barely possible, you know. If there is
any word yon want to send her I'll be
glad to take it" f : .
Joe's face darkened again.
"Very ' much obliged," he ; said.
"There is nothing you . eaa . do lor
me. " r. '
The other hesitated for a moment,
then, with an - exasperating , air of
self . assurance, said:-
I want to be square with you, Joe,
so I'll tell you something. I'm going
to ask Miss Harmon to marry me." .
Joe stood up, a flash of anger in his
eyes. With an effort he controlled
his feelings and calmly replied: ; '
"So far as I can see thai is none of
my business. If you want her, and
she is . willing to have : yon, marry
her." ."-..y.: ' V..:,,.,;--. '
Of course. , But knowing that you
are in love with her, I thought r l
ought to tell you. I don't want to appear
to take any advantage of you, you know."
You " are very " considerate' Jim;
very. But it is not necessary for' you
to bother about me. Yon - have a per
fect right to marry Miss Harmon if
you can get her." ,' 0 ; - ' . ,
Thanks! I am glad you feel so
about it Of . course, I know yon can
not expect to win her not ia your
financial condition you ' know. That
is one of the great disadvantages of
being poor, isn't it?"
The half -sneering, wholly patronis
ing tone in which these words were
uttered was highly .trying ', to Joe.
Drawing himself up to his full height
he said, warmly: ;
Poor as I am, Jim Lewis. I would
not exchange places with you for the
world; - Money is a V good thing to
have, but a clear conscience is better.
Even for the sake, of winning Miss
Harmon I would not want to get a
dollar dishonestly." ' ' ..
"No! "Well, I hope you may find
much happiness in your high Ideas,
Joe. For my part, I'll risk finding my
happiness in plenty of money and the
woman I love. So long."
Jim Lewis resumed his walk down
the road.; His manner was that of a
man - thorougmy satisnea with him
self and the world : in general. 'His
bearing was that of a victor.
Joe Cousins returned to his seat
and, placing his elbows on his. knees,
dropped his face into his hands. . He
-was very unhappy. : He loved 'Jane
Harmon, and he believed he could win
her if he dared to try. But he was
poor,' and he was too proud to ask
any . woman to marry him and share
his "poverty. 'He had toiled faithfully
for. years and. fortune, had not smiled
on him. So far as he could see, there
was not the - slightest . indication,' of
any improvement In his ; financial
prospects.' For this reason he re
mained away from Miss Harmon, giv
ing Jim Lewis the 'field.
He had been sitting In the same de
jected attitude for an hour, brooding
over his ill-fortune, and - wondering
whether it paid, after all, to- be hon
est when a strange but hearty vok
accosted him. ' Looking up he saw an
old man, with' long hair- and an' un
kempt beard, standing before him..
"Ha! I thought. I couldnt be niis
taken," the .old. man cried.: "I'd re
member that face anywhere i X never
forget goodV honest : couatenance.
How are ywi?" . ,

hand, at th same time looking at the
old man in a puzzled way. I 'r, .'
: "I : believe you have the advantage
of ma,"- he said. . "I can't Just place
you at once.'' .v,. ., f
' "So! I Don't "you remember an old :
fellow np at Ruggle's Point? A young
Vhap, your friend, named Lewis, beat
him out of a claim by . Jumping it
while he was sick. He wanted you to :
Jump another claim and you refused.
Don't you. remember?" - .
"Yes, now I do." "
"That was a mean trick in Lewis.
He made $10,000 out of it, though.
Hope he may -enjoy it It didn't hurt
me much. Got j'lentv without that
The other mine turned out big. Made
me rich. How you doing?" r;
V"Well, a little slow, I'm afraid."
"So? Haven't struck anything down
here, then?" . . . :: ..
"Not yet" -.
"Too bad. What would you think
if I was to tell you . that you are
richr . - ..
'' "I should think you were joking, of
; "I never Joke. You are rich."
- ' Joe shook . his head . and . smiled
sadly. - " . .'--; " V" .
"Don't believe it eh?" the old man
"I can't Imagine any possibility by
which such a thing could be so," .Joe
"Can't you? Do. you remember the
claim you abandoned up there at the
; "Yes, I remember that I ought to,
after wasting nearly a year on it"
"That . claim is still yours, and
there is a fortune in ' It . It's worth
? 100,000 any day. I prospected It and
know. : Been . offered - that ' for it.
Where's your friend Lewis ?"
"He's gone to town. Are you sure
about that claim of mine?"
"Of course. You can have $100,000
for it any day. I'm going back, and
want you to go with me.- I Just came
down for a day or two. ( Got a daugh
ter, and heard she was down at town.
Came to meet her." Maybe you know
may, but I believe I have forgot
ten your name. Or did I "ever know
v it?" .. .:':
"I guess not. Everybody called me
Shortcut.' . The way I talk, you know,
Remember?" .' . ,
"Yes. Your real name is :
"Harmon. Zach Harmon."
' : Joe gave a start, and -Ms face paled
and flushed. ; The old man saw noth'
ing however, and presently he rattled
on: , -- ."' ' .
' "I haven't seen my ; daughter for
five years. Haven't, heard from her
for a long time." ' I used to write to
her bacK. home, but got : but' of . the
habit Not much mail going up there,
you know. " I heard last week she was
down here. " A man- from down here
told me. ' He said "she had come on
to hunt me up if I was still living.
Fine girl, and I am anxious to find
her. .Do you know her?"
"What is her first ' name?" Joe
' " Joe was silent a moment, then he
answered, quietly: - :
"Yes, I think I know her.'.' At least
I know a lady of that name." -
"So? Then it is my daughter. Where
."Down In town." - " .. v
"Yes. How far from herf - "' '
: "About three miles."
"So? Well, I must get on. Anxious
to see her, you know. Five years is
a long time. I'll see you to-morrow.
' Joe hesitated a , moment then he
"said: v .. - - -
"Perhaps I ought to. tell you some
thing before you go, Mr. Harmon."
'"Welt what la it?"
"Lewis is down there."
u -"Down .there? .; With my girl, ' you
'' ""Yes.".' ' ? '-.-:
What for? Want to marry her?"
"I think so." .''
v The old man's eyes blazed.
"The scoundrel!" he -' cried. : Til
soon; settle him, though. Guess she
don't know that he robbed me. . Why
didn't you tell her?"
' "I didn't know who you were.
never dreamed of you being her
"That's so. Well, - must hurry.
Would you- oome with me? Wish you
would,-to show me the way."
" "I'll come, if you wish it" 1
; "All right, come on."
They passed out of the gulch as the
night began to fall." They went down
the mountain in the darkness. There
was : comparative : silence ' between
inem. wow ana tnen the old man
Jerked out -a short sentence and Joe
answered. That was all. .
' -"Can I win her?" lie said to himself.
"Or is it too late?"
He remembered Lewis' air of confi
dence, and he sighed, and in his heart
there was a feeling of fear. . -
, "This Is the house," he finally an
Without making his "presence known
the old man threw open the door and
walked in. Joe followed. : They came

and the former was declaring his love

, She gave a little glad cry and went to
his outstretched arms; .There was a long

pointed to Lewis and Bald: v v
"jane, are you going to - marry that
man? 11 ,
"No, father." she replied. Never!"
"Ha! Good! : He's a scoundrel!."; He
paused a moment, then, pointing to Joe,
added: : "Now, there's a man who's hon
