I sat nlono with my conscience,
Inn placo whoro tlmo had coasod,
Aud wo tnlkod of my former living
In a laad whera tho years Increased.
And I fait I should havo t ) answer
Tho tUollou It put to me,
And to fuco Uio nnswer nnd miostlon
Throughout nn eternity,
Tho ghosts of forgotton nctlona
Came floating beforo my sight,
And thing Hint I thought wero dead thing
Wcro allvo with n torriblo might.
And the vision of nil my past Ufa
Was an awful thing to faco,
Alona with my consclenco silting
In that solemnly silent place.
And I thought of n far-away wnrnlng.
Or n sorrow that wns to bo raluo,
In n land that then was tbo future,
Hut now la tho present time,
Aud I thought ot my former thinking
Or tho Judgment-day to be,
But silting nlono with my consclonco
Seemed Judgment enough tor mo.
And I wondered If thero was n futuro
To this land beyond tho grnvo ;
But no one gavo mo an answer,
And uo ono camu to save.
Then I felt that tho ruturo was present,
And tho prcsont would novor go by,
For It was but tho thought of ray post Ilfo
Grown Into otcrnlty.
Then I woko from my tlmoly drcntnlng,
And tho vision passed nwny.
And I know the far-away wnrulng
Wns n wnrulng or yesterday,
Aud I pray that I may not torgot It,
In this land boloro tho grave,
That I may not cry In tho ruturo,
And no ono como tosavo.
And sol havo learnt a lesson,
Which I ought to havo known bororo,
And which, though I lcatnt 11 dreninlug,
I hopo lo torgot uo inoro.
So I sit nlono with my consclenco
In tho placo whoro tho yenrs Incrcaso,
And I try to remember tho futuro

And I know or tho ruturo Judgment,

A BOY'S DEIXXCE.
Tho scene was in Sacramento street,
in front of a well-known hotel. It was
twenty-two years ago, and San Fran
cisco was in hor Infancy.
Quito a crowd had gathered on tho
street, aud tho centro of attraction was
a lug fellow, who stood with a newspa
per in his hand raving and cursing.
"What's tho matter, Wolf?" asked a
nowcomcr, who was ovldontly familiar
with tho Irato man.
"Matter?" returned Wolf, for that
was Ids name, "matter onough, an'
rough enough it'll bo for somo folks.
Them young whoip3 that prints this
paper hits gono an' published somothin'
'bout me. O, I'll tlx 'eml Thoy'd bettor
go an' kill themselves after ton minutes;
it'll bo an easier death for cm,"
Wolf was a noted desperado, who, it
was said, had killed rnoro than twonty
men, and but fow know him who did
not fear him. Ho was at that tlmo ehiof
of a gang of loafere and gamblers that
wcro nearly aways to be found lounging
in tho vicinity alluded to, and disturb
ing tho peaco of tho whole noighbor.
hood daily with riotous conduct. If
thero was any law in those days it was
seldom executed against such charac
ters, anil in tho full consciousness that
thoy wcro feared thoy did pretty much
as thoy pleased.
Tho nowspaper which had given dead
ly offonco to Wolfo was a littlo weekly
journal, and its ollleo was in tho second
story of a building on tho samo street
with tho hotel I havo mentioned, and
only a few rods distant. It was publish
ed by two young raon or, I mlgh.t say,
boys, for thoy wero only eighteen and
twenty years old, respectively named
Darrell and Kayncs. Tho paper and its
youthful proprietors wero already well
known in tho city of San Francisco.
The article that had excited tho wrath
of tho rufllan Wolf wa3 a bold denun
ciation of himself and his crowd for
their lawless conduct, and it particu
larly mentioned him by name, charac
terizing him as a "blustering bully." It
was tho work of young Darrell, a foar
lcss boy hailing from Ohio. Boforo leav
ing his homo ho had acquired a fair
education, so that ho could at least edit
a nowspaper In thoso early days; and
ho possessed, besides, that courago and
daring, which may bo natural in tho
first placo, which aro moro thoroughly
developed by oxposuro to dangers and
hardships. Young Kayncs wan qulto a
different kind of person lu point of
courago, being of an unusually timorous
To return to tho scono on Sacramonto
strcot. Working hlmsolf up into his
very worst mood and his best was bad
enough Heaven knows Wolf toro tho
paper to atoms and started for tho pub
lication ofllco. Ho was followed by a
curious rabblo, most of whom woro
elated with tho prospect of a murder,
though thoro vero somo present who
would havo iomonstrated with thoovil
hearted man, had thoy dared.
"Jest you watch," Bald Wolf, a3 ho
reached tho door, "if yo want to bco
tho'r bloody carcasses tumblo out o' tho
winder! It won't bolong. Idon'tspond
much tlmo on slch foUors." It was tho
intention of tho cruel-hearted man
actually to cut tho throats of tho two
boyish journalists and throw their bod'
ies out of tho window, for tho gratlflca'
tlon of the crowdatid tho further oxaita
tlon of his already fearful uamo. So, tho
mob on tho street awaited tho lssuo
with feverish expectation, as Wolf,
flourishing his knifo and rovolvor, on
tored tho rudo fratno building nnd rush
ed up stairs.
All unconscious of their danger, tho
two young editors woro busily pursu
lng their usual work In thoir primltlvo
ofllco. If thoy had heard tho nolso with
out thoy had paid no attention to it,
supposing it was merely a strut row
such as thoy wcro accustomed to hear
lng ovcry day. Darrell was sitting at a
rudotablo writing, and Kayncs was nt

Colling tho terrified young man's
locks nround tho great coarso lingers of

upon tho countor without tho sllghtost
apprehension that his youthful adver

Such was Wolf's rollanco upon tho

simply intended to butcher tho two

murdored then and thoro, in exact ac

ferociously, "Yo both wroto It.'d n

executed decided circles with his flash
ing knifo, having apparently prolonged
tho torturo as much ns ho desired.
"Hero goes ; look out when I count
three 1" Tho knife was ready to descend.
Ho stopped and stnrtcd. Ho had not
obsorved tho movomcnts of Darrell
during tho last few seconds, and just as
no wa3 upon tho point of clipping off
Kaynes' car in tho polished manner ho
had descanted upon, ho found tho muz
zlo of a rifle thrust almost into his face.
It was a loadod rlflo which, luckily, a
friend of Darrell's had left In his keep
ing that very morning, whllo ho went
out to mako somo purchases. It had
stood in a corner of tho room near his
tablo, anil Darrell has seized It, cocked
it and lovclod it with such dexterity
that ho had Wolf covered beforo ho had
obsorved his moments; and ho stood
motionless as a statuo his cool oye
glancing over tho sights, ami a steady
linger on tho triggor.
"You great bully," ho said, "drop
that knifo instantly. Mind, I como
from a country whero thoy shoot squir
rels only.through tho oyo. I can hit any
hair of your head that you will mention
at n hundred yards. Drop that knifo 1"
Tho rufllan was fairly paralyzed. Ho
released his grip on poor Kaynes', who
sank fainting upon tho floor, and his
murdorous knife fell on tho counter. So
unexpected was this bold attltudo of
Darrell that Wolf was moro startled
than ho would havo heon If a dozen of

Tamer than a whipped cur, tho ruffian
walked toward tho door, and Darrell,
springing over tho countor, wa3 at his
hcols in an instant.
"Don't look back, or I'll kill you."
Mcokly oboying tho Imporativo orders
of tho youth, Wolf moved slowly out
of tho room into tho corridor.
"Bo caroful j don't don't lot tho gun
go off," Wolf stammered as ho reached
tho head of tho stairs.
At this momont tho clamors of tho
Impatient crowd bolow aroso with tor
riblo distinctness, nnd ono shrill volco
was heard to say.
"Hurry up, AVolf, why don't you
throw them follcrs out?"
Exasperated beyond measure, ho was
on tho point of turning back, at tho risk
of Ills ilfo ; for after all his braggadocio
how could ho faco thoso bolow, disarm

ono of tho puny boys he had intended

dreaded man reappeared In this undlg

"Why, I simply kicked him down
stairs that's tho matter," responded
tho boyish volco of Darrell nt tho top;
"nnd if ho comes up hero again I won't
lot him off so easy. Do not bo afraid of
him ; I tookallhi3 weapons from him."
Wolf struggled to his feet, rubbing
his head, nnd presenting such a ludic
rous appearance that ho was greeted
with loud, jeers and bursts of laughter.
So complotoly had ho tumblod from his
lofty eminenco in tho eyes of thoso who
either admired or feared a bold mur
derer, that thoy who nn hour ago would
havo dreaded to offend him by a word
or look, now regarded him only with
contempt laughed at nnd derided him.
Novor beforo had the rough crowd
seen n man with nn established reputa
