12 The Target wider at the bottom. Most of the men departed, leaving one to be on guard duty. Dick now saw his chance. He did not carry a revolver, but had only his lariat. With one long throw he caught the man around the waist, and after a slight struggle tied him securely to a tree. He jumped upon a horse and rode with all speed to the ranchhouse. He at once secured help and rode with a body of men to the canyon The cattle proved to be the stolen ones. When they were returned to the owners he was made quite a hero. All of the cowboys said in one big voice: " Some tenderfoot. " HAROLD DRIVER. CRAFTY ODYSSEUS THE SECOND Mr. MacDonald was indeed the head of his house. The household consisted of a dear little mother, seven daughters and three sons. The youngest son, called John, was twelve; next to him was Mat, who was fourteen. They lived in Phila- delphia in 1845. Their father was a Scotch Presbyterian and never a more narrow or strict one existed. Sunday was especially a day of tor- ture to the boys. On that day they could not run. play, read or study anything but the Bible. One particularly delightful Sunday the boys, while waiting outside for church to begin, ran around in back of it. This alone was a great sin, but when Mat dared John to hit the dog on the other side of the fence it was terrible. John selected a smooth, round stone and hurled it over. It hit the cur on its thinly covered ribs and he went yelping to- wards the house. They had not noticed the presence of the dog ' s mis- tress in the yard. Therefore they were exceedingly startled to see her marching straight for their father, who had just turned into the church- yard. Accordingly they hastened into the side door and took seats in the family pew. There they sat in fear and trembling. When their father came in, he took a seat between them and reaching out his hands he grasped one by the ear and the other by the leg and pinched with all his might at the same time telling them in verse the terrors which follow such earthly wickedness. After church they were sent to their rooms without dinner. How- ever, John traveled the back stairway to the kitchen with the happy result that neither starved. The next morning their father ap- peared with the well known hickory rod. He commanded them to get out of bed. Then laying his hands on their shoulders he prayed that their sins be forgiven. Next he laid hold of Mat and delivered twenty blows upon his sturdy back without a cry from his proud son. The boys ' bedroom faced the street which was the main avenue and all the windows were open. So when he took John in hand, John yelled, " Bloody murder! Blood} ' mur- der! Bloodj " murder! Bloody mur- der!! " John only received four. FLORENCE JACKSON.

The Target plies which had not yet been stowed away, and took possesion of enough biscuits to last him several days, as well as a canteen of water, which a miner had filled and put with his out- fit just before the things were put on board. He did not come out of his hiding place until the ship had been under way for several days. When the captain saw him he was very angry and would have made him work his way to San Francisco, but a kind-hearted man took pity on Stanley and paid his fare. Before they arrived at the end of their voyage, Stanley had many ad- mirers and several men offered to take him into partnership with them. Finally he accepted the kind offer of a man named George Merlyn, and to- gether they left for Placer county to seek their fortune. After a few days they chose their campsite, and Stanley was to put things in order while George went out prospecting. When he returned, he found that his young partner, while digging out a fire place, had un- covered a rich vein of gold ore con- taining several nuggets. From this day on he was known as the " Kid Miner. " Their claim proved to be one of the richest in all that part of the country and as Mr. Merlyn was a man of education and business ability he soon became rich and prominent. The thing he did was to take Stanley back to San Francisco and give him the best education to be had at that time. Stanley lived to be as rich and promi- nent as his partner George Merlyn, but he was always known by the name given him in the old mining days— " The Kid Miner. " FOSTER DETRICK. A TENDERFOOT Dick Ward was a tenderfoot, but he was not so much of a tenderfoot as the cowboys of the West thought he was. He had come from the East for adventure. His parents did not want him to go, but as his uncle owned a ranch in Colorado they thought he would have good care. Dick was a lad of eighteen with broad shoulders, dark eyes, and a good head of dark brown hair. He was an exceptionally strong youth, and had a quick mind. He had al- ways been in good standing among the boys of his home town. Now it was different, he was in the West. There had been some thieves in the neighborhood, and cattle were missing. The mystery was, where did the thieves hide the cattle. Search- ing parties had been sent out, but no trace of the missing cattle was found. Dick had been on the ranch about two months. By this time he could ride pretty well and was getting used to his new life. He was left in charge of a small herd of cattle, while the herdsman went to the ranchhouse for a new lariat, as his had been broken. It was now growing dusk and still the man did not return. Dick was a little worried because he would have to stay with the herd all night. He stayed up a long time waiting, but as the man did not return he went to bed. He was awakened in the night by a noise. He could plainly see that the cattle were being driven off, and his horse was gone. He at once de- cided to follow. After they had traveled for a few hours, the cattle were driven into a deep canyon, which was narrow at the top and
