Don’t you read the news?” From ther capacious pocket of his woolly overcoat, Shorty produced a folded newspaper, opened its grimy creases. “The Cottonwood Courier,” ii yas headed. And I realized how much tre had missed; and also the enterprise of Marcus Handy. Hazily, I had cata­ logued-the first appearance of the first newspaper In camp as an event of the distant future. Bu there it was 'al­ ready—Volunie V.Number 2—its front page a worn and ill-aligned patchworh of scareheads, Or what'were scare- heads for those days. The main item 'indeed, ran cleqir across two columns and began: - - • •; . ^latest Find Rich Beyond Calculation Cottonwood Catiip,- Crown City of the . Rockies, Does It Again flhlMted Wealth Fours Into Laps o) Lucky Locators on Liverpool Hill i if Itfs Gold Quartz This Time, but They're Striking Everything. ‘Greatest Camp That Ever Was,’ Say Experienced Mining Men!” \Gold quartz!” commented Shorty \Maybe the mother lode that your little tailings come from.” “Well, ’tain’t a poor man’s proposi tlon,*1 remarked Buck. “Them lucky locators is working for .Wall street Staked anything for yourself?” “Nope, just got here.” \Anything in sight?” ‘There’s a hundred-dollar bill buried somewhere on me,” answered Shorty “Find it on me, and it's yours. It's all she left me.” “I guess, pardner,” said Buck, \you wish to h—1 you’d stayed with me.” “I wish to h—1 I, had!” The look which Buck flashed back ai t Shorty was a herald of destiny. Had not Buck dropped that little, hesitant flutter of the eyelids, had I not caught it on the wing, the future might have run very differently fpr all three of us. It expressed—was it regret of his bargain? On the one hand there stood L an unseasoned tenderfoot of little use in gold washing; on the other, his old and tried partner. Yet he was bound to me by ties «of law and honor; and Buck was not the man to edge out of a bargain. He could not know how much, at that moment, I wanted to edge out of it jinysel^. The sight ol the camp, of .human beings in aggro; gation, had further sickened me with my hard lot on Placer Claim Num­ ber 32. ■ It flashed on me that Buck and Shorty wanted to be alone; that if they could talk it over they might * i come to closer;agreement with the out­ come .which l desired. And there in my hands was. my excuse. * T met the editor of this paper com­ ing across Ludlow’s pass,” I broke in. \And I promised to look him up.” * \Ail right, kid,” replied Buck, with a readiness which piqued me, in spite of my deeper desires, “Guess I’ll be somewhere round camp until late. % So fortl^ I went, to search for Mar­ cus Handy and - the Cottonyvood Courier. When 1 first saw it a week before, I had thought of Main street as crowded. Now it ran brimful. A blob of light above the roadway drew me up a/side street. It ilium- ^ . * s inated, I saw presently, a board shack leaning against a log cabin. I looked again; and there stood the object of my search. An illumination, such as I had \seen carried in political proces­ sions, proclaimed that this was the Morning Courier, Pioneer Newspaper of Cottonwood. . The main cabin, like ninfe-tentlis of the buildings in'. Cottonwood, had not yet achieved the luxury of a regular wooden door. In its place hung like a portiere the conventional gunny sack. I pushed through1 this ; to my nostrils came a scent pungent and pleasing, but strange—printer’s , ink. Among the details of a cluttered, interior, my eye caught first the central group. At a printer’s stone just large enough to hold two forms stood Marcus Handy in overalls, splashed with ink and grease, hammering a block out of a galley. In one corner fumed a hot sheet-iron stove, The shack beyond revealed the figure of a fourteen-year- old boy, tinkering with Marcus Han­ dy’s precious flat-bed press. Beneath It, their heads propped on a pile of white print paper, lay two other boys, even smaller, sound asleep. These, I was afterward to learn, served as sub­ stitute for the boiler which Marcus Handy hoped to get some dafrom Denver. AVhen press time came, they would turn the great crank wlucli re­ volved the flywheel. To one side of the room in which I stood, rows of printer’s cases lay so close .to the * i i • stone that two ancient printers, furious­ ly setting type* constantly bumped the boss. On the other side was a pine table, littered with newspapers, proofs, scattered sheets; all weighted down by a double-barreled derringer. Marcus Handy^ jerked up ’at me a nervous eye. *‘For God’s sake, don’t— he began, and then: “Oh, the tender­ foot !” He rested in position for an instant, his wooden mallet poised, and I saw that the lines of his face were \Were drawn and his eyps bloodshot. you fooling wtiefi you said you had a college education?” ♦ ♦ ‘The best and most complete educa­ tion that Harvard university dispenses or affords,” I said, taking up, where we had left it off on Ludlow’s pass our Western game of chaff and rhetoric; \polished refined—” but Iiand.v broke that off with a gesture, as though II;. smuauuiV were too serious for numor. “God Almighty must havh sent , you to reward me for the one good deed I ever did, which I don’t know what it I Sat Down to the Table ah4 Shoved Paper and Derringer Away to Give Myself Writing Room. is,” said he. “A printer’s go t drunk and run out on me, and the paper am\ half written. Don!t say you’re doing anything tonight. Just grab a/pencil ar>d a handful of that copy paper ovet there, and bring it here!” Even i*?> h spoke, lie had hammered out the block; ,and when I had obeyed, fasci­ nated, and turned back to him, he was 9 . - 7 lifting with careful fingers a stick of type. ' , : . “Take notes oh -this, and when you’ve taken them, sit down there and put them into the English language,” he added, never looking up from his work. \And don’t stop to get any of your college grammar into it, cither. There was a fire this morning up in White Mule gulch. Got two cabins on a claim. Name of claim, Jennie June. Name of owners, John Ferguson and Ad Wool­ wich. Got that down?” Marcus had now filled out his column and set in the rules. “Ail right. Two hundred words. Work in something about need­ ing a city government to afford fire protection. lUisli ’em both—they’re needed to fill opt this page—and then I’ll give you. the, big story !” As I sat, down to the table and shoved papers <. and .derringQi* .. away , tp, give myself writing room; ,1 had.ft spurt,of amusement at the uneonventionality- of the proceeding. I glanced up at Marcus again, rind amusement yielded-to sym­ pathy and ^understanding. The >tirly Appearance of the.. Cottonwood Courier had been no miracle, unless a, miracle r o f hard work.. In less than a week, Marcus had got his plant set up and his newspaper out; and I conjectured that he Was as yet its whole editorial and business staff. Which accounted for. his. pdd, almost,drunken appear­ ance.. lie was working by the: light of his own blazing her,ves. \Rush i t f 1 lie called twice, as I set down my plain tale. Having finished, I handed over the sheets to him, some­ what thrilled at the prospect of seeing myself for the first time in print. He did not even glance at my copy, but yelled to a printer: “Get this out as soon as the Lord’ll let you! Now—” he was lifting and arranging type again—“this reading item goes on the front page for a lead. Start it about tills way: ‘Mysterious holdups for large sums have grown entirely too common in camp of late., We do not refer to picayune affairs where a ten­ derfoot parts with his roll. The boys must have their fun. But hard upon two robberiesi of the stages came the affair at Black canyon, and yesterday the gang, for the same gang it must be, attempted the boldest crime yet perpetrated.—Do you think you can get that down about the way I said it?” \I think so,’* I faltered. \Well take a note or two, can’t you?” When I looked up, Marcus was locking his completed page. \All ready?” he proceeded. “Write the rest of it your own way. Here’s the facts. Stonewall Jackson mine up on Liverpool sends down a messenger to Cottonwood in a buckboard for the payroll. Probably about five thousand dollars. He don’t take any chances of being seen at the bank. Gets a busi­ ness man on Main street—don’t know who—to draw the money for him. Then, at the last1, minute, something makes him ringy. Just an instinct, I guess. He ends up by sending the paoney in the saddle-bags of the boss; and he rides alone, with a sawed-off shotgun on the seat for a blind.* Sure enough, he's held up. Fotir men, masked. They go through him and see they've been fooled.. One of ’em’s for torturing him, Indian fashion, to make him tell what’s become of the payroll, but the rest lose theis sand. . So they kick him once or twice for. luck and vamoose. Broad daylight proposition He comes down to notify the police and iets go of the facts to me at the Black Jack this afternoon. Make the story of the holdup an interview with Mm. And get it dramatic. Go strong oh the minute when he’s facing the prospect of hellish torment. His name’s Henry —there, I’ll be d—d if I remem­ ber what the rest of it is. Call it Smith for the present. Finish up by drawing Strong attention to the fact that some­ one In camp must be systematically peaching—\ “Peaching?” I Interposed ; for that kerb, now almost forgotten in the prog­ ress of our : American language, was then new slang. “IMormlng—watching shipments of for the gangL It’s plain to the ., • i * as the nose on your face. Some of the gambling element, maybe. And make an appeal for a strong, pure, munici­ pal government. That’s all—no, wait a minute—” . Marcus lifted his form with a weary grunt, set* it down on the floor, leaned it carefully against the wall, and rested his hands on the stone as he meditated. “No* drop that,” Don’t even hint about confederates in camp. No politics, either. I want to know more before I cut loose. Now get it written!” Looking up occasionally from the' frantic haste of my labors, I noted ab­ sently that men were constantly pass-1 ing and repassing through the canvas dfoor and talking with Marcus as he worked. One, evidently, had brought in an advertisement. Just as^evidently, Marcus had told him to write it him­ self; for he seated himself at the ta­ ble opposite me and, with a protruding tongue-tip following the course of his pencil, set himself to the labor of lit­ erary creation. Another must have borne nexvs, for presently Marcus called to me: GORHAM SECTION MRS. ELIZABETH HERSHEY Local Representative • Telephone Gorham-Stanley Line 2-Y-21 N E W S IN AND AROUND OORHAM The proceeds from the Ladies’ Aid bake sale Saturday were about $12. GORHAM PERSONALS ♦ “You, kid! Name of the messenger’s Henry Seward. They took seven dol­ lars off him. He left his gold watch in efimp when he started his bluff. Put that in—contrast between^ what they expected and what they got.” I finished, hesitatingly set the copy on the case before Marcus. He ran rapidly, professionally, through the sheets. “Nine hundred words or there- » abouts.” he said. “Couldn’t have. > guessed better at space myself. Now I’ll show my gratitude and apprecia­ tion practically, just for a change. I can use you. I’ve been wanting a re­ porter. If you like the job, sit down and go on with it—at twenty a week. What say?” My breath taken away by the dra­ matic suddenness of his proposal, I realized that here lay my way otft. The smell of printer’s ink was already perfume to my nostrils. I had enjoyed this little whirl at intellectual work— -the thing I was trained td do—as much as I had loathed digging on the claim. If Shorty .would only buy me out— AVith a promptness whici) equaled that of Marcus, I answered: “Give me an hour, and I’ll let you know.” “Well, come back anyhow—need you tonight!” exclaimed Marcus as I dart­ ed through the door to search for Buck and Shorty.

Pastor Sermon, j Come the CHAPTER V I pushed and jostled my way from Siegel’s beer hall to the Black Jack, from the Black Jack to Myers’ Variety theater, where at last I found my two adventurers lolling • expansively on a back seat, Buck’s arm hooked over Shorty’s shoulder. They, in comjnon with the rest of the audience, were listening with heads sentimentally * ^ * i . askew ,^6 “The Blue: Alsatian Moun­ tains,” as rendered, to the accompani­ ment of a guitar, a violin and the only piano in camp, by a hawlc-faced wom­ an in short and ruffiy skirts. I had to wait until she rendered two encores . • before I could announce to Buck afld Shorty that I wanted to see them on important business and drag them to , * # • the recess between the Variety and Cheap Jack Ecksteinrs Dry Goods Em­ porium. And there I wasted no time with preliminaries, but plunged straight into business. \Shorty I said—I had never heard any other name for him, “do you want to buy out my share of our claim?” It was Buck who answered. He looked upon me with a startled eye, which grew a little suspicious as he asked: “AVhat’s the game? Got anything in sight?” “Nothing in mining,” said I. \Bui Fve been offered a job on the news' paper. And I want to take it.” Shorty spoke; .a slight difficulty in pronunciation proved that since I left him he had taken many drinks. “Throwin* down your good old pard- ner, huh!” he exclaimed, truculently.• “Double-cross him—” “Shut up, Shorty!” commanded Buck. \This is a square kid. Only I want to see if he ain’t a d—n fool. Don’t you know you’re lettin’ go qf a mighty, promising prospect?” “I know you think so,” I replied. “Course,” said Buck, with the flash of an understanding for which I had not given him credit, “you’re plumb disgusted with d|ggin’ just now. It’s hard for a young fellow to get down to real work. But the first week’s al­ ways the toughest. You’ll—” “Aw, come to the p’int!” exclaimed Shorty, waving slightly toward me as though to begin hostilities. “How much do you want to skin me for?” “I don’t want to skin you at all,” said I, a little touched, in spite of Shorty’s condition. “Just what I put into it.” * “Don’t know’s I can let you cheat yourself that way,” said Buck, utterly ignoring, then and afterward, the in­ terpositions of his muddled friend. “Why don’t you grub-stake Shorty? Then you’ll have your share comin’- “Grub-stake, h—1!” broke in Shorty. “No grub-stake in mine—” “When we strike a pocket,”, con­ cluded Buck. “And how’s Shorty goin’ to pftay?” “I’d rtfther not grub-stake anyone,” said I, \and Shorty can pay me on the installment plan, can’t he?” I was growing eager; for our discussion had brought up in my mind *§e sickening memory of that last week in the ooze of the stream-bed; and the blisters on my hands still burned. I perceived, however, that my affair was going well. Buck had not denied that he wanted to combine with Shorty. Only, honest man that he was, he had tried to guard my interests. •« (Continued ^ e e k . ) •3 “Master, where dwellest thou? and see.” Sunday school following preaching service.
