claims." Ko uncommon thing to rii
across a location monument,, bearing
the locator's notice on cuts aide,' and
an Inscription or epitaph to some de
parted man's memory on the -opposite
one. v .
When the ware of renewed interest
in Nevada nihies reached Eureka, Al
bert Heehs and Alfred Deremer re
located an old claim of theirs, and
awaited a buyer. This property lay
conveniently near the graveyard, and,
as former location notices were near
ly obliterated, fresh ones were in
stalled. The new discovery monument
was a head-board, and at each of the
four corners of the claim a melan
choly, prewsome grave-slub was im
bedded in the mound of earth thrown
up us required by the mining statutes
of Nevada, ileehe, being of a grimly
humorous turn of mind, christened
the now locution "Sacrilege Cluim."
I'p the gritty uud parched slope of
Iluby Hill climbed the portly Ira
Itrooks and June, his wifa. A warm,
dry breeze puffed across the broken
desert country; it dried the tear-drops
trickling down June's checks, and
burned the florid face of Ira. Here,
there, everywhere within the confine
of the cemetery, senrehed the rela
tives of Jacob O. Marley. They care
fully scanned each and every name on
tomb-stones, rounded wooden slabs,
and nondescript sticks. No trace of
the lost brother 110 inscription en
graven in memory of him rewarded
their gloomy explorations. As a last
resort, husband and wife separated,
each taking 11 different course.
"Ira! Iru Itrooks! I have found
him!" Jane Ellen's wail cut shurply
through the dry, twilight nir; Ira
straightened up from a lowly position
he had assumed in reading n decided
ly queer epitaph, and, with his usual
efforts, hastened to join Mrs. Itrooks
by the side of her brother's grave.
"Oh, Ira, it is true; Jacob is dead,
dear Jacob is dead and buried in this
wild, terrible spot. Poor, poor bro
ther!" Ira paused before the head-board
that wns placed at the end of a long
mound of earth, and in black letters
upon the weather-stained slab, ho

"Yes, t'.us is poor Jacob's grave,
there ,1- no doubt nbont it. 1'oor fel
low," w beezed the breathless Ira.
"Oh, dear, oh, dear! And why did
they bury him way out here, Ira?
Why, I say, didn't they bury him in
the graveyard?" Bobbed June Ellen,
"Who enn tell wha! these savages
will do out here. Hut. see, his friends
must have respected him: Tool-headed
nnd nervy to the last,' is written on
this slab."
"The idea! Why, dear Jucob wns
devout and peaceable; not a fighting
thing, as that must mcnnl Poor
brother! Hear brother! He shall not
remain in that grave, Ira. To-morrow
I shall have his body exhumed,
and we will take him home and give
liini a Christian barial in the beloved
town of his childhood days."
Jane, having spoken these words,
shed copious tears on the grave of
her brother, and then, placing her
hand upon Ira's arm, the cnuplo
walked back to their hotel in the bnr
barous village of Eureka.
Next morning the l'.rookses as
cended 1,'ilby Hill; with them Wire
two blue-sliirtcd individuals, one of
whom trundled a push-cart before
him, in which were picks, shovels, and
a long, eofl'm-shaiicd box. True to her
I word. Jane Ellen I'.ro.iks had made all
preparations to remove Jacob (). .Mar
ley's body from the unholy neighbor
hood of the calamity cemetery. Ar
l'hing at the barren spot, she pointed
out the gvuo to the workingmcn,
and directed them to begin digging.
The men looked rather nniaed
when they examined the mound, the
imbedded head-board, and noted tho
staring Mack "3. X. E. t'or. Sacrilege
Claim" on tire reverse side. Hut recall
ing empty pockets, and the generous
wages promised, they began their job
with a vim. Deeper nnd deeper grew
the four-by-scven excavation; higher
and higher they piled the clayey dirt
and rocks. Jam' Ellen sat on the edge
of the go-cavt, wutching the opening
of her long-lost brother's grave; Ira
breathed heavily beneath a big cotton
umbrella on the opposite side of the
hill, nnd above them the bright Ne
vada sun glared down from a high,
steel-blue sky.
The solemn silence wns broken by
Jane's voice: "Ira, who are those
men coming this wuy?"
Ira's near-sighted eyes photo
graphed a blurred mass of rapidly
moving objects upon his retina, and
ho became nlarmed, "It's the town
authorities, Jane, nnd they are going
to stop us from exhuming dear Ja
cob!" he exclaimed.
"The idea, Ira! Why, 1 got per
mission to remove Jacob's body long
before you were up this morning.
Those are not the town authorities, I
The men come on tho run. There

Alfred , Deremer rolled forth the
word in a fierce toae; his personage
fairly radiated w rath, and Ira Brooks,
judging from the unsteadiness of .his
knees, firmly beliered an. earthquake
waa rocking the whole of Buby Hill.
Thoughts of his own danger Tanised,
however, as s shrill voice drowned out
the bass growls . of Deremer .. and
Heche. ,
' '"Jumping on your clatmt Jump
ing on Sacrilege Claim! Impudent,
boorish savage! How dare you ac
cuse mo of jumping? If I did jump
on your cluim, how could I hurt it?
Ira, Ira Brooks, this creature has
insulted me. He tells me . that 1
jump! That I jump, Ira llrooks!"
"Aw, you ain't so cute, madam. Tell
me what that there hole in the ground
means? Ain't you smart easterners
trying to get in on a good thing
here?" queried Albert Heehe.' '
"Get ou a good thing? Oh, oh, nnd
right here at my feet lies dear brother
Jacob! Insult me over my own
brother's grave? Rude, unthinking
wretch!" , f
"Brother Jacob's grave?" interject
ed Deremer, who hnd been listening
to Jane Ellen's tirade. Heche caught
bis partner's eye, and the two sud
denly Inst their bellicose air.
"My brother, Jacob 0. Marley, lies
buried here, and Mr. Brooks and I are
taking his body out of this nnconse
crated desert. Now, sirs, is that any
of your business? I say"
"But madam "
"Why er er" began he two pros
pectors in the same breath, but con
fusion got the betterof them, and
they looked Htrangelylviocllo as com
pared with the authoritative desper
adoes of a moment previous.
"Of course, you are ashamed, sirs.
The idea of accusing a lady of jump
ing, in what way you mean, I cannot
imagine. Oh, my dear Jacob! Toor,
forsaken brother that I should find
him lying here!"
"You tell her, Bert," whispered De
remer, loudly.
"Can't you break the news," an
swered Heche.
Muttering a tragic "Well, here
goes," Deremer explained just how it
happened that Jacob 0. Marlcy's me
morial slab did not mark the site of
his own grave, but the northeast cor
ner of their Sacrilege Claim.
Jane Ellen llrooks stared at the
men In mute horror. To steal n head
stone from a jrrnve wns quite beyond
her immediate - comprehension; to
realize that it wus her own brother's
grave that hud been robbed was a
frightful shock to Jane.
"Then, pray tell us, gentlemen,
where we may find Jacob 0. Marlcy's
body." The words came In a sur
custia wheeze from the portly Ira.
Neither one of the partners had
the faintest idea which grave in ca
lamity plot was occupied by Marley.
"You shall be arrested! Impris
oned for life, vandals, ghouls! Oh,
niy beloved Jacob, lost forever, for
ever! And in such -nn ungodly spot!
Oh, dear, oh, dear!" moaned Mrs.
While this scene was being enacted
on the surface, the two men digging
for the remains of Jacob 0. Marley
had been unusually quiet. Now one
of them pitched up a shovelful of
quartz, saying: "Lady, they ain't no
corpse here, far as I can see; but
say, you Deremer. what d'you call
that fer rich stuff?"
Deremer and Heche, always on the
alert for specimens, picked up some of
the rock, nnd what did they see but
flecks of yellow gold, freely speckling
the quartz. Jane Brooks, her hus
band, and her hopelessly buried
brother were forgotten. The part
ners danced n rattling breakdown,
hugged one another rapturously, nnd
took on like foolish school-boys.
"W what ails them, Ira? Have they!
been drinking? I say, have those
creatures been drinking, Iru Brooks?"
Albert Heche answered Jane's In
dignant question: "No, you bet 1
ain't drunk, madam. Hurrah for you!
Look here, did you ever see gold
quartz to beat the likes o' ' thnt?
We're rich, and you say, you didn't
find no buried brother, but the richest
gold mine in all Nevada!" '
So carried uway was Heche that he
actually embraced the trembling, hor
rified Jane, lingered her, nnd then, In
his bubbling delight, fairly shouted:
"Madam, you gets half interest in this
ye re bonanza. Half interest nnd no
expenses! We're nil richer'n' Croe
sus, bovs and girls. Hurrah for Mrs.
Well, so it turned out in the end,
and although it required a good bit of
explaining, of reasoning, and cajoling,
Jane Brooks at lust accepted papers
thot entitled her to n one-half Inter
est in Sacrilege. Claim, which proved
to be as wonderfully rich ns the part
ners prophesied. And, although Jnne
Ellen never found poor, dear Jacob's
last resting place, she did find hertelf
a rich woman, whose heart warmed
toward the impetuous mining-camp
people to such an extent that Eureka
still harbors not only one indefinitely
located Jacob 0. Marley, but Mr. nnd
