James' Exploits. By W. B LAWSON. CHAPTER 2 I I. THE CHASE. It was a moonlight night in the early eighties The air was balmy and the foliage green and abundant, in spite of the fact t hat October was waning. The scene was the extreme sub.urbs of Placer ville, Ca l ifornia, a town overflowing with stockmen, miners, cowpunchers and tenderfoot prospectors The peaks of the Sierras towered in the distance while i lower fringe of woodland showed the line of the foothills. Fruit trees and shrubs almost hid the few frame bui l dings and log cabins, for iri this vicin ity there had been little of 'man's interference. The road leading from Placerville grew narrow and rocky as it wound away from the habitation s Silence reigned upon thi s particular ni ght until moon and stars showed the hour following midnight. Then a solitary horseman emerged from the shadow o f one of the building s, and moved stealthily forwar d. Horse and man seemed one, so perfectly were both proportioned and so harmoni ous was their every m o vement. The cautious rider had hardl y passed out into the moonlight when a long, sh r ill bl ast of a whistle sounded. A man, who had been watchi n g upon the roof of a nei?"hboring house, sudden l y sprang to his feet, and began a se rie s of frantic gestures. Instantly, the stalwart rider leaned forward in his saddle and l aid a brawny hand upon the shin ing neck of his magnificent mount. "Ha! It is a s I expected! The spies are watch ing us Star King! No doubt, they have tracked us since daybreak yesterday! \Ve must" r ide for it, my beauty!" he muttered. He touched his pet as he s poke, and the !J,orse sprang forward. His feet spurned the ground as he vanished in t h e shadows at a rapid rate of speed. "Whoop! Hi, thar Hello, sheriff!" shout ed the m an on the roof.
