I Olives Courtship
Author of "A Cruel Revenge/' "A Forbidden Marriage," " A Beautiful Coquette," " The
Heiress of Cameron Hall."
Judge Kneeland repeated the question, "Who was the young man you
were tnlking to by the cabin window, antl who came and looked after you as you hurried down the
gang-plank?" And as he spoke he fixed his keen gray byes searehingly upon her face, wondering why the question should so agitate her.
The girl tried to speak, but the
name she would ha,ve uttered died
away in her throat, leaving no
How could she breath the words
that would consign the man she loved to a prison cell, even though he
antl her own dear father were' the
bitterest of foes? No, she could not.
She would die flrst.
"Why do you not answer? Did you
not hear nie?" exclaimed the judge,
irritably.   "1—"
Before he could conclude the sentence Olive's head had fallen heavily
forward on her breast, and she slipped from the seat beside him to his
feet in a  death-like swoon.
The judge was thoroughly frightened, lie drove quickly to the nearest drug-storej which, fortunately
enough, was in close proximity, and
restoratives were quickly applied,
anil in less than ten minutes later
the judge was greatly relieved to
see Olive  open  hor  eyes.
"Now, what in the world caused
the girl to go off like that?" he
mused, never dreaming that his
question had the slightest thing to
do with it, concluding that the great
excitement which she had undergone
during the past few days had told
upon her delicate nerves. "Do you
feel better now, Olive?" he asked,
anxiously, as he helped her into the
coupe again  to  drive homo,
"Yes, quite well, papa," she assented—a little wearily he thought—
as she leaned back among the cushions.
"1 should like to stop at the 'Argus' office to put in a personal, if
you don't mind the delay"of a few
moments. Dy the bye," he added, "I
have strange news to tell you about
Roger Glendenning."
Olive tried to speak, but it seemed
to her as if a hand heavy as death
lay  on her  lips  and held  them  fast.
"Talh about your romances," went
on the judge, quickly; "why, What I
have just heard would make the future of a novelist, if one could get
hold ol it who could work it up
right. Xou know some of us thought
Koger was burned in that fire, while
others felt sure he escaped."
Olive nodded faintly. Every word
seemed like the sharp thrust of a
sword through her heart. "Ah,
Heaven! had her father recognized
him?" It seemed like an age to her
until he uttered the next words.
"I wish that I could ascertain his
fate beyond all shadow of doubt,"
he went on, thoughtfully, "for I
have just learned through papers forwarded me to-day that he was entirely innocent of that forgery, and
that his villainous brother Oscar
w_fs the real criminal. Oscar met
with a terrible accident in Philadelphia, yesterday, which resulted in
his death a few hours later, and on
his death-bed he made a full confession to a notary whom he had summoned. Now listen, Olive, and see if
you have ever heard anything like
it. This Oscar forged my name to a
note, thinking he would have ample
time to take it up ere it should fall
due. In this he miscalculated, and
on the day when it must leak out,
he came and confessed to his brother Roger what he had done, throwing himself on his mercy to aid him
in raising the money to take up tho
note and save himself. Hoger, ln
his great indignation and anger, bitterly refused. Theu tha scheming
younger brother thought of a clever
plan to bend Koger to his will. He
avowed then and thero that he, Oscar, had just proposed marriage to
yeu, Olive, and that you had that
day accepted him, and that if I discovered the existence of the forged
note it would ruin his prospects."
A low cry of utter horror broke
Irom the girl's white lips; but not
heeding it, her father went oh:
"I happened to know that .Roger
himself loved yoy, my dear, for only
an hour before Oscar came to him
he had asked mo if ho might pay
his addresses to you, and whilo the
question was pending between us,
and bofore I could give my consent,
there was an interruption—a lawyer
wished to consult me on important
business. And by tho time ho had
concluded his business, in came a
man with this forged noto (which
was got up in ltoger's handwriting)
for payment. Here is tho most wonderful, the most magnanimous part
of the whol^ affair. Because ho believed you loved his,brother, and rather than bring unhappiness to you
through him, Hoger took tho wholo
affair on his own shoulders and
would have been sent to prison with
closed lips had he not escaped, or
had he been found since. Such conduct simply amazes -me. I have never
before known such a case of wonderful sacrifice. It fairly appalls me
when I think of it. My mission to
the, 'Argus' office is to send des-K
patches far and wide to find Roger
Glendenning, if he is in tho land of
the living, and" bring him back and
restore him to public trust and confidence. I declare, it is certainly more
wonderful than the general run of-
He was utterly shocked at the
scene which followed.
lOlive threw herself in his arms,
clinging to him and weeping hysterically, though he could not begin to
interpret the unintelligible words she
was endeavoring to utter between
her choking sobs and strange laughter.
"Olive!" he cried, "what are you
trying to say? You remind me of a
child of ten instead of a young woman of twenty."
She never knew in what words she
told him, making him understand,
at length, that it was Roger Glendenning whom he had seen at the
cabin window.
The judge ordered the horses turned at once, and they drove back
with all speed to the steamer; but.
they were too late. Roger Glendenning had already gone ashore.
Their search for him proved all in
vain. If the earth had suddenly opened and swallowed him, he could
not have been morp completely hidden from them. Then they proceeded
to advertise for him.
Roger Glendenning saw the advertisements, and smiled bitterly to
himself, wondering if they thought
him mad enough to walk with open
eyes into the trap they had spread
for him Again and again he read
the terse advertisement which contained but these few words:
"If Roger Glendenning will Call at
No. — Block Avenue, he will learn
of something greatly to his advantage."
"Some one has recognized me, and
they are on my track," he muttered.
"The only thing for me to do is to
leave Albany with as little delay as
This, he wos just about doing when
a later "personal" caught his eye,
and held him spellbound with emotion. It read us follows:
"Will Roger Glendenning grant
Olive K  an interview, at her earnest request,  at No. — B  Avenue,
Tuesday  afternoon?"
Thoso words seemed to fire his
brain, seemed to make his heurt
throb a thousand times faster than
was its wont, and to make the blood
courso madly through his veins.
Olive had sent for him; she wished
to see him. That one thought was
sweeter than the breath of heaven
to his dry,  scorched soul.
Once the wonder vaguely stole over him that it was all a ruse. But
no; they would not dare use her
name in that way in such a case.
She would never permit it And lastly came the thill thought, had they
prevailed upon Olive to betray him?
Ah, no! Perish the miserable idea
that had found lodgment for even an
instant in his brain. He might as
well mistrust one of God's white
angels, ho told himself.
He made up his mind to go to her.
She would never call to him in vain.
Why, he would have laid down life
itself, and thought it no sacrifice,
for her sweet sake. He would trust
blindly to Heaven and to Olive. She
had called him. He would go, come
what might. He would not go to her
in disguise. No, ho could never do
that; and, utterly regardless of possible consequences, Roger Glendenning presented himself at the hour
and place appointed.
He was ushered into a cool, dim
parlor, odorous with the perfume of
great vases heaped with great crimson roses and white hyacinths.
A moment later he heard a well
known step in tho corridor without.
It was not Olive's step, but her father's. He sprung to his feet, white
as death, and the only words his
lips could utter were, "Trapped"
and "Ah, God! be pitiful—trapped by
the girl I love!" Ere ho could recover himself, and in almost the next
instant of time, the portieres were
Bwept aside, and Judge Kneeland
stood on the threshold.
lf he had suddenly pointed a pistol at his heart, Glendenning's surprise could not have been more intense than to seo him limp forward
with outstretched hand, 'exclaiming,
"Welcome, Roger, to our homel"
Glendenning quite believed that ho
Was in a dream. He was too dumbfounded for utterance.
"Sit down," said the judge, kindly, as he noted the young man's
great agitation. "I have much to
soy  to you,  Roger."
The interview lasted over an hour,
and during that time tho judgo had
fully explained to Glendenning all
the knowledge concerning the forgery
and   Oscar's   confession   and   tragic
_JV HK.        'M Mt       *'^'
death which hei'hai} ..but>S,o recently,
come into possession ofj»nd which
completely  exonerated Roger.'
"And there is another matter which
we might as well settle here and
now," continued the judge, "and
that is the question concerning
Olive's future, which we were discussing on that never-to-be-forgotten
morning when this trouble occurred,
and I have only to say, my dear
boy, that I wish to take you once
more into my employ, and if you nro
of the same mind concerning Olive
that you were then, why, I simply
withdraw my objections, and you
are at liberty to win the little
witch's love, providing you can."
(To be continued.)
Strang* Superstition of Crnadian Wilderness—"Blame  Good -Howler."*
Bob's natural young voice broke the
sit—uined silence. "That feljow is a
blamed good howler," he observed, and
tha frightened guides drow a long
breath, and Vezina showed his access
of courage by getting up to throw a
handful of blrchbark on the flre. Bob
chuckled a bit, unconscious of the bad
moment he had averted. "Vezina, did
you think that howling was a loup-
garou?" he asked.
And with that something happened
which, fitting as It did to the strained
tension of the superstitious mon, was
extraordinary and uncomfortable.
The blaze of the bird—.ark Just
thrown on went out quickly, and a log
fell away at the moment, scattering
the others, leaving us suddenly ln par
tlal darkness. Coming after the Intense
light. It seemed more profound, and lt
was as lf the firelight had been turned
off and moonlight turned on at a
touch, for tre whole breeze swept
forest stirred with mystical white
fingers. An opening of an old
windfall ran from us to the river, and there came from this glade a
loud, sharp ci_ili of a broken limb.
Every eye turned to the spot. In the
path of the moon, 'black against the
white-lighted river, high on pedestal of
storm-felled tree trunks, stood a big
wolf. Still as death the wild thing regarded us, and still as death we stared
back, and then with a spring I was in
my tent, and with another I was back
rifle in hand.
I cannot remember loading or cocking, but I remember seeing the dark
mass at the end of the barrel and I
remember the shot dying in the hills.
If I had hit, lf we had dragged a dead
animal into camp, all would have been
simple. But I missed. Without sound,
or so the men said, the creature melted
Into the silver forest, and left me a
sat of frightened children to handle.
Josef, Indeed, was reasonable, but the
others were In a pitiable state.
"It was—It was," Vezina stammered
through clicking teeth, "lt was the—
loup-garon." And he gazed at me wltb
big childish eyas as lt begging me te

Tke One'Who In Generally Disliked

v The cynical old maid would probably
tell us tbat all men should be avoided.
The happily married young woman
will say that is nonsense—all men are
good, as undoubtedly they are to a certain extent. Rarely doos one come

Yet the old maid Is not entirely
wrong, either. There are some men
whom it is well to avoid, and tlie young

It savors of youth_and almost foolish
ness to refuse to know a man even
slightly because of some faults.
In the matter of real friendship, however, and marriage, a girl Is unwise lf
she accept as friend or lover a man
whom other men dislike. Such a man
is. not often worthy of a good woman's

Pathetle Origin of "Blest Be tlio Tie
That Hindu."
A pathetic nnd yet charming story ls
told of the origin of the well known
hymn, "Blest B* the Tie That Binds,"
which was written by Kev. John Fawcett, an English Baptist, who died in
1817, having spent nearly sixty years
ln the minist?y.
It was In 1772, after a few years
epent in pastoral work, that, he was
called to London to succeed the Rev.
Dr. Gill. His farewell sermon had
been preached near Molnsgate, ln
Yorkshire. Six or seven wagons stood
loaded with his furniture and books,
and all was ready for departure.
But his loylng people were heartbroken. Men, women and children
gathered and clung about bim and his
family with sad and tearful faces.
Finally, overwhelmed with the sorrow
of those they were leaving, Dr. Faw-
cett and his wife sat down on one of
the packing cases and gave way to
"Oh, John," cried Mrs. Fawcett at
last, "I cannot bear this I I know not
how to go."
"Nor I either," returned her husband, "and we will not go. The wagons shall be unloaded and everything
put In its old place."
His people were filled with Intense
Joy and gratitude at this determination. Dr. Fawcett at once sent a letter to London explaining tho case and
then resolutely returned to his work
on a salary of less than $200 a year*.
This bymn was written by Dr. Faw
cett to commemorate the event

Menace to Health.
Old scrapbooks are a menace to
health. For several reasons they harbor more dust than any other old books.
Usually the pages are pasted on both
sides, making them thick and uneven,
They are broad, and their ornate bindings are seldom behind glass doors, but
easily accessible on tables and shelves.
After turning over the pages, sneezing,
head colds and hay fever have often
resulted without tlie cause being suspected. In our library was a scrap-
book of colored fashion plates from
1853 to 1802. Another was filled with
newspaper clippings of the war between the states. They were prized
and frequently read, but colds almost
invariably followed. We sent them to
a bindery to be fumigated and rebound.
To prevent In great measure this condition, use a carbollzed paste, paste
only on one side of the page, keep them
behind glass and provide them with
oil paper covers. Do not let tbls adverse side prevent any one from making scrapbooks Use preventives as
with all old books whose pages have
been turned until they are sufficiently
uneven to harbor dust.—Good Housekeeping.
Average  Business  Man   Covers  Vast
Territory In a Year.
"If I had a cent for every mile I
walk during offlce hours every day I'd
soon be able to retire," Is a remark
frequently heard from men and women who are kept on their feet while
at business. The general impression is
that the distance traveled dally ls very
great. And so It may be. But the simple experiment of carrying a pedometer for a few weeks will probably
show that one's Income at a cent a
mile would not be worth collecting until the end of a year.
A downtown office man has Just finished an experiment of this nature. He
' carried a pedometer six weeks, registering Its total each night. At the end
of that time it was fonnd that the distance traveled, though varying greatly
from day to day, came to a fairly even

&s Soon an We Begin to Make Them
We Begin to Suffer.
We would not have to strive so tor
courage lf what we vaguely call
"things" were more evenly distribute-
ainong us, for no one's lot would then
seem to h-/n"an evil one. If we were
all humpbacked or lame or blind;
If every husband were unfaithful and
every child a cross; if we were all poor
and no man had any more than another; If nobody's son died In his early
strength and nobody was loved while
we sat neglected, then who of us
would know whut sorrows and afflictions were? We would take each of
them for granted, as a Chinaman takes
his yellow skin and an Indian his red
It is because we see our estate differing from that of our fellows that we
are tempted to comparisons, and it ls
ln the making of these comparison* .
that a sense of our sorrows, like the
knowledge of our affliction?, is first
born. How would we have known that
we were poor unless we had seen some
oue else who was richer or that our
son was unsuccessful unless the son of
somebody else were making a great
mark In the world? Would our little
children be unhappy with only one
dress. had they not seen other children with two?
It comes to this, then: Wben we begin to make comparisons, we begin to
suffer. This mny seem to be a hard
saying, but lt ls a true one—Lillle

Giant Whale Tows a Steamer.
The whaling steamer Orion, which
Captain Balcom and h'.s associates ure
operating ln connection with their modern station at Sechart, nn the west
coast of Vancouver Island, B C., figured ln an exciting adventure last werk,
the outcome of which was for two
hours in doubt, while a monster "sulphur bottom" whale, seventy-nine feet
in length, towed the steamer seaward
at better than fifteen knot speed.
The whale hud been harpooned In
the ordinary manner, but wns not killed, as usual, the bomb attache^ to the
harpoon falling to explode at the critical Instant. As the monster was only
wounded and enraged there was nothing else to do but pay out line and
play the big fish until it should become
exhausted. For two hours the whale «
traveled seaward, towing the steamer.
It kept under water the greater part
of the time, coming up at quarter hour
Intervals to blow; and so hard did It
pull that the blades of the harpoon
loosened In its flesh.
The whale's pace grew steadily less,
however, until It finally became very
weak. The high speed at which It had ,
traveled and the heavy drag of the
steamer told, and the effect of the tow
was intensified by reversing the ship's
engines. Finally one of the ship's boats
crept up on the whale and four humi
lances were buried ln Its vl'.als.

A Common  Trouble Among  Growing
Boys—A  New  Blood  Supply  is ■•
Needed—Dr.   Williams'    Pink   .'
'   PIMs    Actually    Make
New Blood.
There are thousands of young men
just approaching manhood %' ,o have
no energy, who tire out at the least
.exertion, and who feel by the time
they have done their day's work as
though the day were a week long. In
some of these cases there is a further
sign of warning in the pimples and
disfiguring eruptions which break out
on the face. These are certain signs
that the_ blood is out of order, and
unless it is promptly enriched, a
complete breakdown, or perhaps consumption may be the result. All
these young men should take Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. These pills actually make rich, red blood, 4 _r the
skin of pimples and eruptions, and
bring health, strength and energy,
iieie is a bit of proof. Adolphe Rol-
lnntl, St. Jerome, Que., is a young
man of nine years, who says: "For
more than a year I Buffered from general weakness, and I gradually grew
so weak that I was forced to abandon
my work as a cletK. My appetite
failed mo, I had occasional violent
hendiicaes, and I tegan to suffer from
indigestion. I was failing so rapidly
that I begun to fear consumption was
fastening itself upon ine. Our family
doctor treated tue, but I did not gain
nuclei' his care. I was in a very discouraged state when a friend from
Montreal came to seo me. He strong'
ly advisetl me to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I did so and inside of
throe weeks I began to feel belter, my
appetite began to improve and I
seemed to have a feeling of now courage. 1 continued the pills until I had
taken ten boxes iinii 1 iini now enjoying the best of health i ever had.
My cure surprised many of my
friends who began to regard me as
incurable, and I strongly advise other
young men who nro weak to <follo\v
my example and give Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills a fair trial."
-hero is no mystery about the cures
'Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make. These
pills actually make rich, red blood,
which braces nnd strengthens every
organ and every nerve in the body.
That is why these p'Us euro all common ailments like anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion, neuralgia, St. Vitus
dance, headaches ana backaches and

The comment regarding the School
Board'* dismissal of PriuoipalRobson,in
last week's "Advooate" contained the
following " the new   school   law
makus il impossible for any sohool section to choose iu teacher....being
compelled to submit to the choice of the
Board. It gives the Sohool Inspectors
the chance to Inflaenoe the Board in appointing teachers or membsrf of the
Board can appoint ;favorites."
A correspondent, this week, say*:
"Mow tt was no donbt a natural conclusion fer any sober-minded person to
uonie to, sinco the Sohool Board had
acted agaiust the wishes of the community, that they must have been
influenced by tbe Inspector to make the
change. On the contrary, as far as I
oan learn, the Inspector has always
reported favorably upon Mr. Robson, in
fact, the best report ln the Munich
It is reported that the Board would
not prodnce the Inspector's report upon
Principal Robsou, when asked to do so
by the delegation at its lost meeting.
When seven-eighths of the residents
signed a petition unking for the reinstatement ot o teacher aud the Board
refuses to take any notice, it is about
time tbe Board was investigated.

There is much for thought and deepest ttudy in the childhood, youth and
early manhood of the Anointed Saviour,
hat these are largely hidden. We know
that he who was to be named as the
wonderful, Counsellor, Prince of Peace,
oame ota noble line thongh of humble
parent* i that his great mission ^was
made known and believed In by his
holy, loving mother; that the early day*
at youth were passed in Egypt and
probably at Alexandra, the then one
great seat of learning, where were
gathered the books, the literature, the
learned, the wise men and philosophers
ot the whole world; that doubtless the
faith and brooding eare of the loving
mother provided a way to bring the
child Into touch with the learning, the
books,- the wisdom and philosophy ot
the oity and land of temporary sojourn.
We known that from being a carpenter's
son, he, on hia human side, was early
taught leseonB of duty and usefulness,
of labor and service, and learned all the
joys of the exeroUs ot mind and body
and of the oreative power in building
or construction; that he experienced all
the toils, hardships, dangers and sorrow* of human life and was brought
into daily intercourse and sympathy
with the poor and lowly and was taught
the religion, the history, weak, humiliating and subservient position of his
people and that He was always inspired
Witt thoughts Of his ultimate great
work and mission.
After the record of the return of ths
family from Egypt, "when they hid
performed all thing* according to thu
law of the lord" we are told, "the child
grew and waxed strong In spirit -lied
with wisdom, and the grace of Ood
Was upon him" and immediately after*
wards at twelve-years of age he is fonnd
"in the temple, sitting in the midst ot
the doctors, both hearing them and
asking them questions, And all that
heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers." Still as a dut -
tul son he returned with hi* parents to
Nazareth, "and was subject unto them;
bnt his mother kept all these saying* ln
her heart. And Jesus increased in
wisdom and stature and in favor
with God and man " That he was fully
equipped for his work and had won
recognition is evident from the quoted
words of John the Baptist. This is
speaking ot bin' as a man, whose life
training, temptations, victories aud
death were ever to be an inspiration
and an example to all Of EartL'. Children as of an elder Brother and a chosen
Saviour, Guide aud Friend.

With the introduction of the pail into
his craft the Chinese carpenter was iu

with 'a sort of hammer face, so he
came to use thnt. Though a gjidd ax,
the tool Is a bad hammer.. However, a
large proportion of the hammers first
Introduced from the west by importers
were poor imitations of what u hummer should bo, aud the Chinaman
rightly judged it uo better than his
own, so generally repudiated it. Here
was another evidence of so called obduracy. At a venture 1 secured a small
consignment of thoroughly good claw
hammers for trial with my own men.
Shortly thereafter a mnn chanced to
lose his ax-hammer at a juncture
where it was very badly needed in the
latter function. I presented him with
oue of the new lot. IIe,",heftcd" it and
swung it with a grin of 'dawning satis
faction. When-I made the next round
he was wielding the new acquisition
with energy.
In the course of a few days there occurred again tho loss of n native tool,
which resulted In the presentation of
another of my hammers. At the third
occurrence of the phenomenon my suspicions were slightly aroused. Upon
the fourth I decided it was time to
begin an investigation. These hammers
seemed the source of a rare satisfaction.
It wns arranged to begin prematurely a phase .of tlie job in hund -which
required a great deal of ax.work. After giving (directions, I retired to watch
developments. There was a rather ostentatious struggle to meet' the demand of tbe work with n 'short supply
of axes Then tlie boss carpenter made
a plea for a new supply, which was refused. Moreover, ho was told that a*

it might be just ns well to reduce the

reduction in his own "squeeze," he
took another course. One by one, when
my back was turned, the lost axes
were unearthed. Judicious lutervals
were Interposed between the respective

Left Handed Animals.
It may seem queer to speak of an
anjmal or a bird as left handed, but
the naturalists use that term ln discussing the qhestion, just as they do
in speaking of human beings. Many
of them claim that all animals and
birds are left handed. Livingston, the
famous Afrloan explorer, was among
these. One of his illustrations ls the
habit of the Hon ln always striking
with Its left paw. Parrots are probably left handed, too, for they nearly
always take with the left claw anything that may be handed to them. A
student of parrot habits says, however,
that this may be accounted for by the
fact that people use the right hand ln
giving anything to a parrot, and the
bird naturally extends the claw that Is
nearer the object.

QUANTOCK'b great-grandmother,
you remember, suddenly expired before Bhe had quite told
the dwarf the secret of the
rock. And this filled him with grief
and anxiety, for he loved the gentle
Elvina, and for her sake longed to
save the village from the terrible
-flood which his great-grandmother
had foretold, and which he could not
prevent without learning the half-revealed secret about the rock.
The villagers, after the death of his
old great-grandmother, saw nothing
of Quantock for many weeks; and
when he went Into the village, and the
children were about to tantalize him,
as usual, Elvina rushed forward and
protected him.
They all liked Elvina; besides, was
she not the daughter of the Mayor?
So they allowed the dwarf to go his
way In peace, and once more he had
to thank the pretty girl for her kindness. In return he told her of what
the ancient dame had said to hiin, and
she was grateful, Indeed, and informed her father, the Mayor, who was
very seriously alarmed, for he knew
what havoc the mountain floods had
done to other villages.
All through the summer Quantock
went exploring the mountains to try
to find the rock his great-grandmother had referred to. Sometimes
he spent whole nights and days on the
banks of the mountain lake, feeding
upon berries and goat's milk, in his.
anxiety to discover the half-revealed
Once or twice he descended to Dellydale worn out and tired, and the villagers wondered why he was always
up in the mountains, for they could
often see his poor dwarfed figure
climbing slowly from peak to peak.
On the occasions of his visits he was
always kindly greeted by Elvina,
whose friendly smiles gladdened his
hoart, and he went away more firmly
resolved than ever to save her and,
therefore, the entire village from the
The summer passed away and the
rains began to descend, and Quantock,
the dwarf, began to despair of ever
finding the rock, when one day, as he
was seeking shelter from a very hard
downpour of rain, he missed his footing and rolled down the mountain
side until he fell Into a sort of cavern,
where, although half stunned, Ih> managed to creep-into a dVy corner.
In tho iiioiiitn_r. when the sun was
up, he examined .lin hiding place, and
found he/was immediately beneath a
gigantic rock that rested on two
ledges  of   black   stone.    Instinct  told
him that here was the rock which he
had go long been seeking.
He saw at once that if a flood reached this point it would diverge and
overwhelm the village.'. But If the
rock could be removed, then the
stream would rush down the channel,
which yuas now and hafl for centuries
been blocked by this enormous rock.
He hurried down to the village, and,
seeking out Elvina, begged her to go
and see the rock, and she went. Then
the Mayor and chief villagers wer.t
and were convinced, and only Stormont, who was angry because the
dwarf had discovered what he and
other young man had sought for in
vain, and because Elvina was ever a
warm champion of the dwarf, laughed
at the idea, and, walking away, called
them all a "pack of fools and gulls."
The season, as Quiintock's great-grandmother had predicted, was the wettest
for years. The rain came down in blinding torrents, and the Mayor was at his
wits' end what to do. At last Quantock,
the dwarf, said:
"Let all the horses in the village be
harnessed together; let a chain be fastened round the rock, and then let all the
steeds be urged forward."
Again Stormont laughed; and as he
was one of the richest grape growers
in the country, the people had to listen
to him; but he had no sensible suggestion to make. So, the Mayor called a
meeting in tlie Town Hall, nnd told
them of the dwarf's proposition, and,
somewhat shamefacedly, the villagers,
rememberjng how they had treated the
unfortunate  cripple,  agreed that,  as it
was the only plan to save them all, it
should be tried.
Already the lake was trickling over;
and if the earthwork should give way
the rush would come. Just as Quantock
had suggested, the rock was chained
round and the horses ...messed thereto; and none too soon, for the waters,
high in the mountains, were giving forth'
angry mumblings. And at the very first
tug at the rock the dam began to
weaken and a heavy stream gushed
forth with violence. For over an hour,
amidst the greatest excitement that almost amounted to a panic, the horses,
cheered on by the me», struggled with
the gigantic stone.
At last it showed signs of moving, as
the waters came nearer and nearer, and
Stormont finally began to take an Interest in the work, but his offers of help
were too late to do him any good. However, he Insisted on pushing his way
closer to the rock than was really safe,
in order to see lf it was really shifting
from its position.
"A long pull, and a strong pull and
a pull all together," you know, usually
brings about successful results. So the
rock, with a sound as of thunder, rolled
from the ledge, crushing reckless Stormont beneath its enormous weight, Just
as the lake burst, and, with the fury of
a thousand seas, roared down the mountain side, into the open channel—and,
thanks to Quantock. the dwarf, the vil-

II   can play  outdoors or indoors
^^    you plisse?   Here is—the
Bounce Battle.
Each of tlie players (who play in pairs,
by the wuy) must bend over until his
elbows are-beiow his knees, and clusp
his hands about his shins. Then some
one should thrust a stick — a smooth,
round ono—through the aperture between his knees and elbows.
Now, trussed in this fashion, two
players should attack each otlier, each
trying to push the other off his balance,
so that he. will roll on his back, where
he will be quite helpless to rise, unless
he unclasps his hands nnd removes the
stick. But while trying to push his opponent each one must be very careful to
preserve his own balance.
A gentle shove with your shoulder, a
nudge with your elbow or a Jolt with
your hip will do the trick, If you strike
your opponent at a moment when his
-milium is uncertain.
Be careful not to hop against hlin If
he is on the lookout and braced for the
attack, for in that case your effort will
be fatal to your own balance.   But lt is

Kindness to a Horse
THE other day a one-horse wagon,
loaded with Iron pipe. for. a nev.
house on the hillside, came along.
The horse did his very best, but It was
with the greatest effort that he could
drag his heavy load over the level space
at the foot of the hill. The driver was
determined that the horse should do the
work, and urged and lashed him unmercifully.
Very quickly a lady, followed by
two beautiful dogs, appeared upon the.
scene and remonstrated with thi
driver upon his treatment of th.
horse, pointing out the fact that the
faithful animal could not, instead ol
would not, draw the load. She sug>
