I "It Must Be Fate."
By CLARISSA MACKIE
The curio seller who Bits nt the cross
liiK of tho Two lloads In Tokyo grin
ned nmliiltly up Into Terry Preston's
"If tho honorable lord desires to set
dellKhtful flowers It would be much rec
ommended Unit he liny call visit upot
tho garden of KeslAmio."
"Where is this wonderful pinion?'
inquired Terry, to whom nil parts of
Tokyo were alike, to whom all the
world was flat and stale and uninterest
ing now that Dulcle Morse had jilted
him and married Oscar Converse.
The tnnn pointed along tho uppei
"If the honorable lord will follow
that road until he comes to a red Kate
In the bamboo hedge he will find be
yond the gate a path that will tend
htm straight to the garden. Many
have found happiness there," he add
ed, with a sly glance at Terry's moody
"Happiness?" Jeered Terry. "Pray,
tell me how happiness may be found
In a garden."
"Happiness," mused the curio deal
er, fanning himself gently, "consists
In being with those we love In the
case of a lover, with the particular
beloved one. The story goes that
many centuries ngo a beautiful maiden
named Keshlono lost her lover through
a quarrel, and to console herself she
made this beautiful flower garden.
Tho gods pitied her and sent her lover
wandering Into the garden, and when
he saw Keshlono flitting among the
Iris beds he fell on his knees and beg
ged forgiveness. 'They were married
and lived long and happily In a house
which has long crumbled to ruin.
When they died they wero changed
Into two beautiful plum trees tlmt
guard the Inner gate. ISver since then
tho garden has been noted for bringing
happiness to disconsolate lovers. One
has only to wnnder there."
Terry grinned In spite of himself nt
the man's fluency. "You have told tho
-tvory many times?" ho questioned ub
iio moved away.
"And have witnessed tho desired to
be end," came back tho nnswer prompt
ly, and he deftly caught the coin tiiut
came spinning toward him from Ter

"you're a cheerful liar!" ho declared
"The garden Is only for tho discon
solate lover," ehlded the curio dealei
sedately as tie pocketed, his accuser'H
liberal tip. "The honorable lord Is too
Insanely cheerful lo be In need of thu
pity of tho gods."
"Thanks. I suppose that's n compli
ment," grinned the other as he went
on to catch a trolley ear. "Hut you
get us coming or going, eh, Togo?"
"Excuse. Name Is not Togo, but. Is
Yuulsho. Good day, honorable sir.
(Jet them coining or going. That
sounds funny English," he mused.
Terry Preston sauntered along tho
upper road under tho arching trees.
Tho shaded footpath rambled beside n
high hedge of bamboos, whose green
feathery tops rustled pleasantly In tho
Now a well defined path wandered
Idly between green hedges until ho
reached a second gate that swung wide
open. On either sldo of this gate was
a Dcamiiui piuin tree, rresu in ns iuuy
bloom of pink and white. These trees
represented the beautiful Keshlono
and her loving husband.
Terry Involuntarily removed his
straw tint as ho passed under tho trees,
it ml lie blushed a little nt the surren
der to sentiment that tho little act Im
plied. "Nosh!" ho muttered.
Ileyond the gate ho found the gar
den, a charming mixture of old and
new. Thero were ancient corners
where dark cryptoinerlas made a dim
green shade. Hero ono cniiiu upon

William was wicked.
When I pick out one man from n
mining camp made up of 300 run
nwnys, debt jumpers, cutthroats, gam
blers, horse thieves mid murderers nnd
call him wicked 1 menu for the render
to infer that lie was right up and
Which was exactly the case with
Wlckedl Well, he wns that!
Such n swearer ,as William wns! Iio
would begin as soon as his eyes were
open In the morning and keep up a
steady fire until 10 o'clock at night
And he was a cheat and a liar.
You wonder that wo didn't run him
nut or hnng him.
Well, somehow we always Intended
to, but always put it off to a more
convenient date. Tho success of
bouncing a man depends a good deal
on who tho man is. On our first gen
tle hint to William Tripp that unions
he was packed up and out of camp in
side of thirty minutes his unntoiny
would bo riddled with bullets he pro
duced n couple of revolvers, backed up
against tho lied Eye saloon and calm
ly observed that he was aching for a
little excitement. I think his actions
nt that particular tlmo had something
to do with our giving him the rope
and seeking to get along with his ec
centric traits of character,
"1 move." snld Elder Heacon ono
night when we were tnlklng about
William's bad ways, "that the com
mittee get tho drop on hjni and then
run him Into the hills."
Just so, but who were the commit
tee? That was another point wo could
never satisfactorily determine, and that
wns another reason why William con
tinued to abide with us.
Shoot? Well, you never saw such an
eye and such nerve. Just as far as he
could see the bowl of a pipe In a man's
mouth he could smash it with a bullet.
Almost every hat In camp had an air
hole made by one of bis bullets, and,
though 1 was prejudiced against Wil
liam. I had to admit that he respected
men's heads In shooting nt their hats.
Hut thero came a halt in William
Tripp's mad career, and It happened
In n queer way. A lire In his tent one
night burned up n lot of his traps, and
he had to make a ride of thirty miles
on Colonel Cooper's old mare to replace
ttiom with new. The morning ho rode
out of camp was the last time wo saw
hlm. but we heard from n dozen dif
ferent ones Just whahappened. About
twelve miles from our camp was the
Overland trail, and Just where our own
trail struck in was a pretty little val
ley with plenty of water and wood. It
was a favorite camping spot with Im
migrants, and the day William Tripp
reached it he found half a dozen wag
ons and as many families halted for
a breathing spell.
Thoiievlltry In William's nature bub
bled over when ho struck that valley
and beheld such n scone of peace.
Children were playing around, women
were washing and mending, and the
brawny men were repairing wagons
and harness and whistling over their
work. William drew rein and gazeil
upon the scene for a few minutes.
Then he out with his revolver. Seated
before one of the fires was an old wo
man with her knitting in hand and a
pipe In her mouth. It was n long shot,
but the evll-ono urged William to try
It. and try ho did.
Something even worse than murder.
Tho bullet went straight for the old
woman's head nnd crashed Into her
brnln. Then something awful follow
ed. She rose to her feet, whirled
around to face the shooter, and true
ns you live she seemed to look nt him
for thirty seconds before she tottered
forwnrd nnd shrlclml out:
"William: Oh. my son William!"
Then she pitched forward on the
grass and was dead In n second, nnd
tho red blood oozed out nnd made a
terrible stain on tho green grass.
And Wllllam-whnt did ho do? no
was Hku ono turned to stone. The old
woman's words plainly reached his
ears, anil ho must have recognized her
face. In the awful moment in which
ho sat gazing at the corpse on the
grass it miwt have flashed across him
that his poor mother had mado that
long Journey with neighbors for no
other purpose than to hunt him up ho
the boy who had left her years ago
and had been the subject of her nlghu
ly prayers over since. Wicked ns ho
wns he must have felt her devotion
Ho sat there In his saddle, his eyes
fastened on his mother's corpse, and
thu revolver still In his hand. Tho sit
uation had pet rilled him. While ho sat
thus one of tho Immigrants, who, be
lieving that the camp was to bo nt
lucked by n "forre, leveled his rlllo
over thu wheel of (ho wagon and sent
