FiiKD Pratt. 

Mr. Pratt, Fred's father. 

Ralph Wood. 

Mr, Wood, Halph'n uncle. 

Ralph — I've brouKht vour hook l)ack. It's tip-top. 

Fred — ()h, tho HatulitI RovoHKf ? I think it's splondid. 
Bi'l. the huiuUt, waH a glorious felh)\v, wa.><n't he ? Wasn't 
it poniical— ^the wav ho rnt rapped the Htage paHsengers in 
the mountains. \Vhat jolly times the handitn had ! 

Ralph — Fred, it's juMt the sort of wild roaring life Fd 
like. I wouldn't dare say so at home, but I would ; and 
I think Hill the bandit, and Sam the outlaw, and Phil the 
renegade, were every whit as good as these steady-going 
folks around here. 

Fred — Ho do 1. You know Hill never murdered unless 
it was necessary. 

Ralph — No ; and Sam always stood reaH" to defend any 
poor fellow in distress. Phil was a first-rat«. rellow, if he 
did vow vengeance on the red-skins. He never sparetl any, 
men, women or children. 

Fred — I don't blame him for killing the Indians. Didn't 
they murder his mother and sisters ? 

Ralph — I don't blame him, either. They ought to be 
exterminated. I tell you, Fred, I've half made up my 
mind to go out on the plains, or into the mountains and 
try the jolly adventurous life of a road-agent myself. I 
don't propose to 8tf,y at home and dig potatoes, h« ^ corn, 
saw wood, and such menial tasks as those, wh'm I . ight be 
flying over the plains in my saddle. 

Fred — I'm tired of such a humdrum Ufe myself. Going 
to school is just as poky as work. But I don't suppose five 
dol'ai's would take us far. We might starve before we 
could reach the frontier. 

Ralph — Starve ? What did Sam the outlaw do ? 
Helped himself, didn't he ? He had some pretty rich 
experience, too. You '•emember how he took po.sses3ion 
of a pantry once, and when the cook came in, frightened 
her nearly out of her wits by flinging a sheet around him- 
self and playing ^he ghost. He had his fill on pies and cake

the reil deiuonn killinl my uncl''s family in N'int.e-iota in

them, as I'hil the renegade had.

honore<l fatiier made of that *."),(KKJ he drew from the 
bank this morninn- Where he put it ? 

Fred— I — 1— how shm: <' 1 know? He— woultin't — 
be likelv to tell me. 

■Mr. r. — No equivocation, youiiK man ! {HrinyH his re- 
volrcr in done contact with Fred's forehead, at whieh Fred 
shrinks imck in great alarm.) 

Fred ~Oh, don't kill me, sir ; I'll tell you where the 
numey is. He put it in a small box and locked it in the 
secretary in the library. 

Mr. V. — That'll do. Your mother has some jewelry, I 
suppose. Where can it be found ? 

AVe'/— She hjis a gold watch anc' a diamond brooch. 
They will be on the dre-ssinK table in her room. Hut— oh 
—don't harm m> mother, please don't, sir. 

Mr. P. — I'll see about that. If they keep quiet it e 
all right. I never murder unl'^ss it is necessary. 

Mr. Wood {who has been confronting Ralph with drawn 
'pistol during the parley) — Now, youngstei, tell me where 
your governor keeps his valuables. 

Ralph — W^e have nothing valuable — we're poor. Fred, 
here, will testify to that. 

Fred — Yes, sir ; they are poor. 

Mr. W . — Perhaps so, but I believe the old gent parted 
with a span of horses to-day. Now, you young scoundrel, 
tell me where he put the money he got. {Places his pistol 
close to Ralph's ear, at which he falls back uery much fright- 

Rail '' — He keeps his mone 
straw-tick under his pillow, 

Mr. IT.— That'll do. No
