A stretch of eastern country open and wooded, high and low, level and broken, beautiful in summer, but just now depoly hidden beneath a mantle of snow, and abbve it hanging a dome snow-laden. A faint western wind stirring the orchard's great desolate heart, and filling its aisles with uncanny whispers. From an invisible somewhere gaunt shadows stealing forth and reaohing out their cold, bare arms to darkly ambrace a rambling, old-fashioned homestead mansion. Ever unioinding and gaining volume ae they approaoned, thuse spectral shades silently stalked into a quaint, tIosceiled apartment before whoae open chaem of a fireplace stood a young girl. She was in appearance almost a child, slim as a youthful tamarack, and graceful, with a face sweet, round, fresh, daintily tinted, but hardly up to the oleassial ideal of beauty. A face tenderly, temptingly, daringly lovable, yet wondrous sad, withal, in its pr...

From Western Kansas to the mountains quicksands are to be found in nearly every etream, no matter how emall and to enccessfully bridge them required an expenditure out of all proportion to the width of the stream to te crossed. Pale-driving was tried, but the longest piles diesppeored without touching the bottom Then filling with earth and atone was attempted, and mrt with equally poor sueess, as the quickeands were ap.. narently capable of swallowing the entire Rooky Mountaine.
