THE CRIMSON RAMBLER 15 "The will left everything to you, Stark, under one condition," went on the lawyer, trying not to notice the young man's bulging eyes. alle had heard, as many others have, of your shiftiess ways but you were always the apple of his eye since you were a youngster so he left everything to you. Now listen, Stark, this condition might be hard for you to comply with, but you must do so before I turn over a cent to you," continued the old lawyer sternly. "Wl1at is that condition, Mr. Burns ?" asked the cowboy nervously. "That condition, Stark, is that you settle down and make somebody of yourself and make good use of the money he leaves. VVhat do you think of it?" the lawyer asked, looking sharply at the young cowboy opposite him. "NVell-er-I don't know, I've a little money Ilve got from the rodeo, but that's all I have," he managed to stammer. "Do you wish to settle down ?" was the next question shot at him. At this question Stark told the old lawyer about his dreams and the thoughts that had gone through his mind on his journey, looking up to see how the lawyer took his explanation. - When Stark had finished, the lawyer knew he was sincere and grasped the young man's hand, replying, "That's the spirit, young man, I know you'll make good. As youlre short of money, I'll tell you what l'll do,', he went on hurriedly, "I will back you up in this plan and then when you inherit the money you can pay me back." "Thanks very much for the offer, Mr. Burns, but what if I don't make good ?" "I know you will, Stark, because you have the makings of a successful person," he replied, sizing the young man up. - "Thanks, Mr. Burns, and l'll surely take you up on your proposition," replied Stark, with a sincere look. It has been tive years since Stark left Lawyer Burns's office and went on his fortune-seeking job of building up his hopes. Things have certainly changedg the beautiful river and valleys that gave Stark his ambitions have changed. Across the beautiful river is a large gray dam from which large cities and the surrounding country obtain their power and watery down the valley one sees a city with itsgchurch, schoolhouse, paved streets and many other improvements and institutions which represent a prosperous place. The people are mostly garbed in cattlemen's clothes, some are dressed better. On going down the street of this town one will see a large building with a sign, "Stark's Hotel," another with "Stark's Department Store," and many other small signs with Stark's name and other prominent men of the town. Many wonder why the "Stark" name is over so many of the largest buildings. Why? Because James Stark had turned from the thriftless, good- for-nothing young man his folks had known to a very ambitious and thrifty man. His ambition planned and built this city which he called Utopia. Stark had thought of this name because everything in his little city was so peaceful and perfect. The laws were enforced with the greatest ability, everyone had a friendly way toward each other. Why shouldn't he call it Utopia? Everything was perfect. E. XV., '31,
