The crowd of men who has ussemblod to see the last rites performed over the body of their late townsman turned away from his grave on the edge of the pine forest, disoussing on their way back to Deadman's Flat the reason of the murder and the probability of the discovery of the murderer.

Nobody but iiimself knew why he came, because the facilities for gambling, drinking and fighting, which were apparently the chief attractions to the rest of his mates, wore never made use of by him. If he generally came in the company of half a dozen miners bent "on the Sroe," he nearly always went back one; and it was noticed that he was usually alone during the hour or two he stayed in tho town.

It was here, rather earlier th...
