robes and shawls about her in such a manner
u to secure tno moat comfortable position.
"The fust time I ever seed this Diming

Alice has listened with keen attention to the
"story told by the driver In his quaint, rougli
style. Qifted with a vivid Imagination, she
had pictured the scene to herself as it had hap
pened, and while sbe shuddered at Ihefttal ter
mlnatlen of the thrilling tableau, !io admired
the brave daring of the man who was known
only by the fanciful name of Diamond Dick.
'Do you know, miss,' said Sol, breaking In
on her thoughts, 'they say Moonshine Mik
can't rest easy, an' ha,nts the gorge in which
he war killed.'
Alter laughed heartily at the driver's words.
'How charming I a real ghost I How I should
like lo meet this unquiet shade.'
'I don't think ye'd feel so good over It, mis,
'f ye knowd all. Bottle-Noe Tom seed it. He
said It cuin'd out of a solid rock, ridin' on
hossback, on a boss blacker'n the darkest dark

mouth. An' Ihe spcrit war all afire with a
sort of a cloud floatin' round It ; an' two days
arter. Tom got a fever an' died. Yankee Nick
war the next to meet it; a week arter he war
faun' dead on the hilMde; 110 wounds 'on 'im,
liut an awful look ou 'is face,'
IT was hlaln that Ihe supersl'tlOut driver had
his own peculiar notloas about the adf lsablllty
of meeting this dread being.
The next moment a turn In the road took
them Into a dark corner Tin moon was not
high enoughjet to throw any light Into tlilv
gorge, and to Alice there was aomeining lore

a shudder the girl drew a shawl tightly about

With a feeling of nameless horror Alice saw,
standing in the road, a form In which she rec
ognized the drcsd being of the drivers descrip
tion, and which site had thought was hut the
creation of ignorant superstition.
There was Ihe black steed, hnrdly discerni
ble from the gtooni; there the tall, motionless
form upon his back, about whom there floated
a thin, transparent material, that looked like
a cloud, in its fleecy whiteness. And such a
face I Surely it could belong to nothing I111
Dark, elfish locks struggling about features
rendered perfectly hideous by the Miiefire play
ing over them, eyes closed, in the centre of the
forehead a round, red hole, a crimson strenk
trickling from this wound. No, she was sane,
and she beheld before her what?
'That Lord ha' marcy on us,' quavered the
driver. 'It air the spent of Moonshine Mike.'
THE T1UEB OF THE .MINES.
A lively place was the 'city' of Greaser Gulch
since the rich deposits of gold discovered in
the dark bed of the swilt-ilowing stream that
ran through the canon had drawn the miners,
ever attracted by the fascinating inducements
held out by 'new digging,' frvm far and wide to
this spot. Almost in a day, Greaser Gulch had
sprung into existence.
First a few hovels inhabited by Mexicans .
then the rush of the gold-seekers ; and then, as
If by magic, a city of nearly five hundred souls,
of hotels, stores, gaming dtns and dance-houses
thickly Interspersed among the habitations of
the miners- Nightly these places of 'amuse
ment' were thronged by the miucrs, who lured
on by the fickle goddess, or the smiles of the
heartless sirens, would throw away In a few
hours the gold they had wrested from the earth
during the day.
Notably was this the case in a large eslabl'sh
ment which lorded it over its neighbors,
inasmuch that it boasted of two stories, and
which bore on its sign the title of 'El Cap!
tan.' On Ihe night we wilte of, the gambling room
of the El Capitan was crowded, and the various
games of chance In full blast, early as was the
Seated at one of the small tables ranged along
side of the walls, three men were playing at a
game of cards.
From the poor playing they did and the fro
quent mistakes that were permitted to pass un

players were not on the game. In fact they
were conversing in low, guarded tones,
'And when will this girl be here?' inquired
the younger of the trio, a Spaniard, evidently,
from his swarthy face and fanciful dress, but
who spoke English perfictly.
'I expect her by to-night's stage, Dave,' an
swered the man at the head of the table, and
who was dealing the cards,
This was Colonel Ilcardon, proprietor of the
El Capttau Hotel, aud reputed one of the best
curd players in Arizona,
Then I think I had better be preparing my
self for the sacrifice,' said Dave, with a sarcas

It was Elan ElWell who spoke the express
ageut and pustu.aster of the gulch a man, like
Iteardon, past the prime of life, with small

proceed cautiously ; too much haste will spoil
it. iiy the way. Dave' Iteardon sank his voice
lo a whisper 'thereis a mat) around here
whom I don't like one who, I fear, knows to
much for our good I'
'Who is that?' inquired both the listeners,
'Hush! Don't speak so loud. There he is
leaning on the bar.'
'Yes; u deputy-sherilffrom Texas.'
'I fear him. What are you about, Dave V
said the colonel, suddenly. 'That spade culls
'Ah 1 so it does. Where are my wits?1 and
Dave placed the jack of clubs upon the bower,
A man sauntered by close to Ihe table' To
El I well and Iteardon he nodded familiarly.
Upen the Spaniard he cast a sharp, curious
His face, contrasted by the black, wavy hair
escaping from under Ihe slouched hat, the large
brilliant eyes, and mustache of the same dark
hue, looked ghastly In its marble like pallor.
But the most remarkable thing about him,
and one which would have attracted attention
even in the most resplendent courts of Europe,
was the mass of diamonds his clothes were
Each button on his coat and vest had set In
its center a Dashing stone; in his Immediate
shirt bosom gleamed a magnificent solitaire ;
the watch chain dangling from his fob was
sparkling with the preciocs gems ; aud upon
the small fin gers of both bauds he wore rings
set with the same brilliant crystals.
This man was Diamond Dick, sometimes
called 'Ihe Tiger, from a wonderful quickness
and activity he had displayed on several occa

The three plotters at the table exchanged un

Hardly had the baize-covered doers folded
behind his form, when a terrible hubbub arose
In the saloon into which the door opened. Loud
shouts and curses rent Ihe air. The next Initant
the doors were dashed aside, and a mar, evl
dently very much under the Inllueuce of whisky
stsggered into ihe room

voice, Who says I can't come In here? Whar1!
the man? Show him lo me quick,
The man was a perfect giant in stature, and
broad in proportion. His dress consisted of
blue flannel shirt, rougli pantaloons, and big
boots, A mass of fiery red hair straggled from
under the edge of a haltered plug hat, and
frowsy beard of Ihe time color covered his face.
Around his waist was striped a mall arsenal
THE CpLUMBIAN AND
The rude entrance of the stranger had Inter
rupted the various games In progress, and as
every one In the room was staring at htm, no
one noticed that a man glided Into Ihe room by
small door it the head of the apartment. This
zaan aflfJiutriedly whimpering s few vtonkin-.
to the ear of Diamond Dick, went out ng.iln as
noiselessly as he had entered.
Whatever It was he said seemed to affect Dick
in a peculiar manner, and he started to leave
the rooui by the door at the firther end.
In doing this he fell under the notice of tho
the red-haired giant who suddenly barred his
Whar you goin pilgrim ? You e-.ii't git out

Dick looked at him in anitKiueiit.
Why cannot I leave ?
Cause I don't want ye. I'm the S-irpint of Sikl

Then placing his arms akimbo on his hips, he
looked at htm with an impertinent sure.

Harry? Stranger, I kin bar to hu spit on, and

at the face uf Dick with a list like a hum
Well meant, too, was the blow, and had it
struck fairly, would have cut short the existence
of Diamond Dick then and tlurc. Hut with a
bound, the Tigct of the mines sprang aside, and
as the giant, staggering under the iaipeluusity
of the blow, ptsKed, he shutout his right hand
like a Hash.
Fairly upon the neck of the handsome Har
ry fell the terrific blow, and the giant lay in a
quivering heap upon the tljor.
A laugh went up from the spectuters, who
breathlessly watched the altercation.
In a few iniuntes the fallen giant began to
stir himself. Silting up lie gaied blankly uround
Catching sight of Diet, who, with aruis fold
ed low down his chest, was calmly looking at
him, the Sarpiut of Siskiyou struggled tu his
feet, and walked gingerly aud cautiously around
a few times.

made a rush at his nimble antagonist as be
This time Diamond Dick did not avoid him,
but quickly dodging the blows, he sprang in
side of the giant's guard, and poured a perfect
rain of blows upon his face.
Blinded, staggering under the terrible hail of
blows. Handsome Harry struck wildly into
the open air, until Dick planted that terrible
right bander onin upon his neck, and again
the giant fell like 11 sack of meal.
'There, I hope that will satisfy you, fool 1'
said Dick, coldly. 'If you are not, there's more
where that came from,'
'Oh, no, pilgrim,' said the giant, wiping the
blood from his eyes. 'I ain't a bit proud, if I do
say it, Shake I'
Diamond Dick grasped the proilered hand.
His was not a nature to repulse an offer of
friendship made uuder such circumstances,
'May I go out now?" he inquired, wiih a
'Wal, I'll salivate the man as says you can't,'
replied the Sarpint of Siskiyou, glaring around

Nary word, stranger; you're boss of this
town. I ain't buckin' agin no nirthquake this

wilii a wise shake of his head,
Dick turned away with an amused smile up
on his face, to leave the room, but as he stretch
ed out his hand to push aside the door, a pistol
shot suddenly ran through the room, followed
by a low moan of agony.
A CLOSE CALL.
Diamond Dick staggered buck and fell mo
tionless on the lloor,
A cry of horror from tho crowd, then n fav
age snarl, and tho Serpent of Siskiyou drew n
rotolver and leveled it nttho crowd.
W'har's the man who tired that shot ? Quick!

I'uncy Charley, tho barkeeper,canie forward.
Uciitloiiien, whoever fired the shot, did it
through that door, pointing to tho small en
trance at tho hca it of the room, I heard it
close immediately after Dick fell.
With n vengeful yell the Serpent of Siskiyou
hurst through the throng nnd threw himself
against the door which g.ic way before him
with a crash.
A flight of stairs were di.-clo-ed leading up

Some warm friends had Diamond Dick

swiftly out of the room.
Dinmond Dick had opened his eyes, und
was staring vacantly around at the rough faces
