In "Richard the Brazen" we
put before the reader a knight
errant worthy of the beet days
of chivalry, though he i of the
present, and we find him in the
garb of a cowboy. The euperb
courage with which he rescues
rom certain death a young wom
an whom he had never before
seen, and the reckless darinf,
with which he risks his reputa
tion in an attempt to win this
woman under an assumed name,
will appeal strongly to every
lover of romance and admirer
of courage. How Richard pros
pered in his entqrprise under
difficulties which would discour
age any but the most stout heart
ed we leave the reader .to Jind
out, and a most delightjul pas
time it will prove.

Author nf "A Brokra

face was clean shaven, round and Joy
ful, lit by a pair of ateel gray eyes
that twinkled continually in harmony
with the genial smile which sometimes
caused the careless to lose sight of the
firmness of the clean cut Hps and the
square, resolute Jaw a man wbo was
known and honored In seven states
and loved by every ranchman within
a radius of a thousand ' miles. Ben
wyck wa Ice, Williams Ore, so that
an fond there waa not a great deal of
difference between their method, for
beat and cold both burn.
Mr. William, wbo, like all Texans.
was the soul of hospitality, offered bis
guests the beet bis ranch afforded, and
neither Miss Beuwyck nor her father
found cause to murmur. When supir
was over and Miss Harriet wbo was
sleepy from her long ride, was shown
to a'slmply iiirhTshed but clean, fre..
room, the two magnates sat down b
discuss their business differences. Al
the outset they locked horns, and mid
night found them as far aa ever front
an amicable settlement
"Good Lord, Benwyck," the Texan
laughed, "It's after 12 o'clock, and
we're loslu' a sight of beauty sleep.
Let's stop buckln' an' take a drink.
That's aometbln' no honest man con
squabble over unless the whisky' bad,
which this ain't Here'a how! Turn
In, but don't thrash around your bunk
all night We can do our wrastlln' In
But Mr. Renwyck did "thrash
around his bunk" all night, and not
once did be close his eyes. On seversl
crucial points be was In the wrong,
and no one knew It better than him
self, yet with bulldog tenacity be
clung to bis false position. With loss
of sleep his Irritation Increased, and
morulng found him eager for the fray
and more Insistent than ever In hi
Breakfast over, the two went at It
hammer and tongs, but without adjust
ment of the difficulties. The New
Yorker craft and legal ' knowledge
were wrecked on the rocks of th
Texan' common aens and humor,
and at laat Mr. Benwyck' temper
burst all bounds. In one short angry
speech he severed every buslnees In
terest with his boat 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 waa much that she
wanted to see on the ranch, they left
the place at once. In order that th
angry Mr. Benwyck might get to tbe
distant railroad by 2 o'clock and
hurry baok north as fast as steam and
hi hope of ventres nee could carry him.
However, they were not to reach that
point without experiencing another
phase of Texss life, with Its Infinite
possibilities of excitement and sur
prise. Their wagon had broken down, and
the outIt with the guide and th oth
ers, hsd been left behind at the ranch,
with Instructions te follow after so
soou as thrngs were put In shape. A
guide was hardly a aeceealty, for the
route to tbe railroad station lay straight
south Over tbe prairie. There was a
rang of hills to the right, snd with
that snd a pocket roinpass eves such a
tenderfoot as Jacob Reuwyek could
scarcely lose the wsy.

ride greatly mollified Mr. Benwyck'

ture. As for UUs Harriet, ah thor
oughly enjoyed It and only regretted
that th experleuoe would soon tormi
ii.H e lu the luxurious monotony of her
father's prjvst rtr. Prom time to

blood spurted from the wounded mem
ber The maimed steer scrambled to
bla feet bellowing. In bis anguish i he
began laahlng hi. sides with bis taU.
The steer that had caused the trouble
Infuriated at the sight and smell of
wounded companion. The vlctirt, hi
tlactlvely realizing that he waa be
come persona non grata to the whole
herd turned and fled for his life.
With the swiftness of a military ma
neuver the nearest cattle fell In line
aud Joined the chase. Before Miss
Benwyck realized what had happened
the herd of cattle, "barking" madly, as
the short, sharp bellow on such occa
sions Is 'called, was racing directly at
her forty abreast lu the twinkling of
an eye every one of the brutes was In
frantic motion. She was petrified with
astonishment, although blissfully Ig
norant of the extent of ber daDger.
She heard a shrill, frightened cry from
ber father and looked oaca. uu-n
steers-for she had reached the middle
of the herd-were racing past tier in
uch a way as to sweep arouuu auu

more frightened than she. began to cut
up viciously. Blind with terror and
utterly uncontrollable, at last he bolted
directly toward the oncoming animals.
Then she knew her peril. Instinc
tively she screamed and waved her
free hand. Tbe leading rank of the
stampeding herd was diverted from
the direct course by ber approach and
her cries aud turned aside. They swept
around lu a great circle, tbe otliur
steers blindly following. Before the
girl realized what hnd occurred she
found herself caught, as It were, on
the edge of a maelstrom of panic
stricken animals aud swept Irresistibly
along with them.
WAY ou the other sldb of the
hen', two cowboys had been
lazily lying on the grass in the
shade cast by the motionless
bodies of their ponies. They had been
keeping such Indifferent watch that
neither of them had seen Miss Ben
wyck. It was the noon hour. The
morning shift hnd gone back to camp,
and the afternoon gung bud not yet ar
rived, so there were ouly these men
watching tbe herd. The quiet bud
made them relax their usual vigilance.
The Instant they heard the first "bark"
from the steers they lesped to their
feet and sprang to saddfe.
"They're -off!" cried the teller of the
two as be drove his spurs Into bis
pony and took a straight cut aero the
prairie so a to bead them off.
"We'll get 'em mlllln' nnder tb hills
all right!" shouted bis companion aa
they raced along.
A quarter of a mile, however,
brought them In sight of the woman.
Tbe first man, who was a little ahead,
"Look yonder!" b shouted.
"My God!" snld the other. "Right In
their direction. She's a goner If"
"Faster!" cried his companion.
He saw that tin les the onrush of the
cattle were diverted tbe girl would be
overwhelmed and trampled to death In
the stampede. Try as be might he
could uot reach her lu time, yet he had
the fastest pony ou the rung and rode
like a centaur. He fairly lifted the
broncho through the air In bis. mad
