amid loosened stones. The solemn

"Hold your horses," growled the

At these words the woman pricked
,up her ears, and, leaning forward,
peered ahead. As they rounded a pro protruding
truding protruding angle of the hill, a huddle of
roofs and walls spotted with lights
came into view, and the sight drew
her hand forward with an eagerly-
pointing nnger.
"So that's Rocky Bar I" she cried.
"Have we really got there at last?"
The driver chuckled.

event of Rocky Bar's day was ovCe
The eight stages, the passengers of
which dined at the hotel, had long
passed onward on their various routes
up and down the "mother lode" and
Into the camps of the. Sierra. That the
nightly excitement of the "victualing
up" was to be supplemented by a late
arrival in a surrey, driven by Jake
McVeigh, the proprietor of the San
Jacinto stables, and accompanied by
a woman, was a sensational event not
often awarded to Rocky Bar, even In
the heyday of summer-time.
The occupants of the office crowded
into tte doorway and pressed them themselves
selves themselves against the windows.
The hotel proprietor, an ancient
man with a loosened vest, and trou trousers
sers trousers tucked into long boots, dispersed
them as he ushered the strangers into
the office. That they were travelers
of distinction was obvious, as much
from their own appearance as from

emotions of the occasion. By common
consent their eyes focused on the
great man who stood warming his
hands at the stove. Even the rare,
unusual woman, revealed now as suffi sufficiently

the younger and more Impressionable
members of the throng. All but these
gazed absorbed, unblinking, at Bill
Cannon, the Bonanza King.
He was used to it It had been a
part of his life for years. Eying his
admirers with a genial good humor,
he entered Into conversation with
them, his manner marked by an easy
familiarity, which swept away all
shades of embarrassment, and drew
the men around the stove, eager to
respond to his questions as to the con condition

The talk was becoming general and

"I don't see how she could do that,"
said the girl. "This is one of the

largest balls ever given in San Fran-

Cisco. She can't leave her son out,

and she couldn't ask him without his


"Couldn't she?" said the old man,
with a narrowing of his eyes and a
knowing wag of his head. "You don't
know Delia Ryan. I do. I've known

her forty years, ever since she was

first married and did washing on the

back porch of her Bhanty in Virginia
City. She was a good deal of a wom woman
an woman then, a strong, brainy woman, and

she's the same to-day, but hard as

nails. Ill bet a hat she hasn't asked

Domlnick's wife to that ball."

"What do you suppose hell do?"

asked the daughter, somewhat aghast

at this glimpse at the Ryan family


"Don't ask me such conundrums.

I'm glad I'm not In It, that's all

know. When two women lock horns

rm ready to step quietly down and
out I never to my knowledge saw

Domlnick's wife, but I've heard about
her, and take it she's a pretty hard

4tind of a proposition. They say she

married the boy for money and posl

tion, and hasn't got either. Delia,

who has the money, hasn't given them
a cent since the marriage; made up

her mind, people say, to force Mrs

Domlnlck out She doesn't seem to

have done it, and I guess It's been
sort of aggravating to her. Just the
same I'd like to know If she's had
the nerve not to send the woman an
Invitation to the ball. That would be

pretty tough."
"I've never seen either Domlnlck or
his wife," said the girl. "It seems odd
when I know Mrs. Ryan and Cornelia
so well. But he married the year I
came back from Europe, and he's
never been anywhere since. I don't
believe he ever goes to his mother's.
There's Mr. McVeigh in the doorway;
we'd better be going."
Once again in the carriage they
were soon clear of the last straggling
shanty, and speeding along the pale,
ascending road. The silence that
held the trio before their arrival at
Rocky Bar again fell on them.

of trees unllghted by the feeblest ray
