"Mebbe I did, and uiebbe I didn't" answered Tony, slyly, "but these here words about standin' still and watching Salvation slam good all about will keep pappy's fists up his sleeves. Say It, Edle, she ended. "I won't" said Edith, getting up swiftly. "If there's anything in it, Tony, you can show me by gettin' your daddy back home. Mebbe he's in jail." "Even if he was," retorted the girl, with a wise shake of her head, "lovin' s fly hard could make the wide open, and daddy'd flop out like a dogfish flops into the lake.

"Were you speaking to me?" said a voice from near the door. Tonnibel Devon struggled to her feet turned around and saw a young man looking at her. A flame of red rushed over the tanned skin, but because he was smiling and kindly, she smiled back, a dimple coming to life at each corner of her mouth. "Nope," she flung out in confusion. 9 Mebbe her and me hadn't ought to be here. You can kick us out if you want to." Philip MacCauley, the captain of the Salvation army In Ithaca, bowed, and then he laughed. "Every one is welcome here," he quoted, coming forward. "Where'd you come from? Tve never seen you .

We like "it," replied the young man. "Sit down ; don't be In a hurry. I want to talk to you." Tonnibel did sit down but not very comfortably. She was embarrassed In the presence of this handsome young stranger, abashed In the glamor of his uniform, and all the beauty of him. With boyish admiration he was contemplating the sparkle of her gray eyes, shaded by long lashes as ebony black as her hair which hung in ringlets to her waist He decided that she was very pretty, and that he liked to have her In the Salvation army quarters. "Can't you stay for meeting this evening?" he asked presently. "We have singing here." Tony's eyes deepened almost to lus- Astonished at such crudeness, Captain MacCauley shifted himself about so he faced her squarely. Was it pretended Ignorance or Innocence In the searching gray eyes? Then he decided that truth was stamped on every line of the upturned face. "Of course, everywhere," he exclaimed brokenly. "Why, dear child " Tony Devon interrupted him swiftly. "Tell me how to manage it" she pleaded. "How can I wheedle your God to the Dirty Mary?" "To the what?" was the question the boy asked in shocked swiftness. "The Dirty Mary," repeated Tony. "My mummy and me live on a canal boat Once she were just called 'Mary.' But she's so d d nasty, Ede calls her the Dirty Mary. She's a nice boat just the same as long as my mummy's there. But I can't see how a clean God could come on 'er. I guess you're foolln' me, mister." Philip swallowed hard. Then slowly ALE i i i FARM NO. 2. FARM NO. 1.

A week before this story opens, Uriah Devon had steamed the length of the lake, anchoring his boat as near Ithaca as he dared. Even to his wife, Edith, he had not confided why be had brought her to a town where yawning roads, on pike, R. F. D. and telephone.

"What's done In this place?" she i9 questioned after a while. "Oil, we sing and read and pray," replied the boy. "We do everything we can to help people. There's such a let of misery In the world." "Oh, Td lpve that!" Then she shook her head. "Nope," she went on, "I got and gently he talked to her, trying to make her understand as best he could what he meant by God, Spirit. "And you can help your mother, little what's your name?" "Tony, just Tonnibel," she mumbled. Then her voice rose and she uttered sharply, "Now tell me how to help my mother." Philip went to the altar and sorted out a small card. "This," he said, coming back to her, "has happy, loving thoughts written on it If you think these things all the time ob, how they will help both you and your mother." Wonderingly she took it In her fingers. The first thing that met her eyes was a beautiful uplifted face of a man and in his arms was a little lamb. Underneath the picture was printed, "Feed my sheep," and directly under that were the words, "Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord." Once more her eyes sought the face above, a face wherein lay all the pity and love In the world. Tony Devon caught a glimpse of the lesson he was trying to teach, and when she went out of the Salvation army hall she held within the depths of her a wonderfully new and utterly strange emotion. She was panting for breath when she ran up the gangplank of the canal prison doors gaped for her every jpass-In- g hour.

Occasionally Mrs. Devon lifted her head to listen and turned her eyes to the west where a narrow path zigzagged Its length up the hill to the boulevard. Into her tortured soul had come a belief since the night before, that Tony's "Gloriest God," would send her man home. Suddenly the sound of heavy footsteps in the forest path brought her sharply around.

Grace Miller LColumbia, - E-iYOUlST- White The books of few authors ever achieve a sale of 1,000,000 copies. Fewer still are the authors who live to see such popularity. Yet this talented daughter of the Empire state has lived to see it and the end is not yet, for she continues to write and sales show no diminishment. It all started with "Tess of the Storm Country." That story made the fortune of a magazine for women which ran it serially. Moving picture producers and players have also gained fame and fortune through it. A later romance, "The Shadow of the Sheltering Pines," has another sweet, charming, pathetic little heroine very much like "Tess." We propose that our readers shall become acquainted with her and shall reproduce the story serially. Keep your eyes open for the first installment. "JEWELER" $$ &&M&&$$ mGRmmXX - Kenlirt L. M.

The reason is that the boys are leaving the farm while in their teens to seek employment in the towns and cities in considerable numbers. It used to be the custom and rule in Kentucky for the boys to remain at home until they became of age. Then unless the father took him into partnership, or made some fair arrangement to regularly compensate him for his work, he would seek employment away from home.
