By holding his body rigidly erect, he managed to keep the canoe upright. Then he waited, but not for long. Almost Immediately a girl's bare arm . shot through the window. Something wriggled In her clutching fingers.' Philip almost lost his hold on the boat as Gussle came against his face. He snatched the pig and dropped it at his feet Then a pair of bare legs followed and Tony's body began to wriggle through the narrow aperture. .

"Have It your own way, kid," replied Uriah, with an Insolent laugh, "but one thing's sure Ede ain't here to buck against me now. What I want to get into your thick noodle is. you're goln to get married as soon as we get to Auburn. See?" The girl's eyes remained centered on his face, horror, 'deep seated In their gray depths, "Here's Beggie wantlri' to marry you," continued Devon, with a wide wave at the limp young man. "And when I say you've got to I mean it" "I won't," fell from Tony's lips, but the awful expression on her face didn't change nor did she drop her eyes. Devon took a quick step toward her, with an upraised arm, and as he had beaten his wife-s- o he laid the blows about the girl's head and shoulders. The pig fell from Tony's arms in her desperate efforts to protect herself. "Oh, daddy, don't, don't, any more!" x she screamed. Reggie Brown was watching the brutal scene dully as if it Interested him but little. At the girl's fearful plea Devon stepped back and glared at her. "Will you do what I bid you, miss?" he demanded hoarsely. "I'd as soon kill you as take a wink." " TonnibeTmade no answer save to weep more wildly,' and, because she did not make ready reply,- - Uriah struck her again. Then suddenly Reginald stood up. "Don't hit er anymore, Dev," he drcwled. "Shut 'er up. a while and keep 'er without grub, and she'll come to time. Give 'er a night to think It over. God, but you've walloped her black and blue as 'tis." In answer to this Devon picked Tony up and threw her Into the back cabin. Then he kicked Gussle over the threshold, slammed the door, and ' ejaculation as a streak of lightning crossed the sky only to die and leave the water as dark, as before. It was taking the gjrl an Interminable time to squeeze herself through that opening. Suddenly her shoulders were through, and she was hanging on by her hands. Just at that moment the tug ahead became silent and Philip heard the two men walking back along Its roof. They were coming aboard the canal boat, and If He crushed the canoe the nearer, lifted one hand hanging figure of the girl away from the window. She flopped face .downward into the bottom of the canoe, and Philip left her there limp without a word. Then he let go his hold, of the canal boat, and a great wave lifted his slender craft upon Its crest and they shot away toward the bank. It took a shorter time than it takes to tell It for the canoe to reach the shore. Under the overhanging trees where they were shielded from the wind, Philip turned and looked back. A man's face was thrust through the .window which had just yielded up the quiet, little figure at his feet Then two forms appeared upon the stern deck. From the. hand of one of the men hung a lantern. Philip remained very still. He knew they could" not see him hidden away there In the darkness. For a long time, through which Tonnlbel never moved, Philip waited.. The men on the canal boat- - seemed filled with terror. They ran from one end of It to the other. He "heard them call- -' Ing to and fro, and once In a while an oath escaped from Devon, as he screamed his daughter's, name loudly. It was not until he saw one of' them climb upon the tug and heard the sudden clang of the engine that the boy took up his paddle and moved slowly along the shore southward, and, as he was going with the wind, Philip made rapid progress toward the head of the and-jerked --- '':'.- clothing. witli now ready to supply young men, old men and boys ' ' , ( ' Lfravean immense stockand receiving new.

Then Reggie was there with Devon, but where was Tony? One small window in the canal boat -- gave forth a dim light He'felt within him that she was there where that light was, alone and suffering. What had she thought of his allowing himself to be forced away from her when she needed him most? His teeth came together sharply. He was no coward, this Philip MacCauley, this captain of the Salvation army. Suddenly, he caught sight of a pass-- " Ing shadow In the cabin, and his heart leapt up Avithin him. 'Twas the shadow of a girl walking up and down. Grimly his teeth set Into his under lip and with one deep thrust of the paddle Into the water, he sent the canoe headlong toward the canal boat Then It was that a girl's face came to the window. he decided to go, too. The canoe almost Crashed against the side of the bigger boat as it came sldewlse of It and Philip caught at it sand. Through many sobs and tears, she told him all that had happened,on the canal boat, and that her father had snid her mother was dead. And so touched was Philip MacCauley, he felt the tears rim his own lashes. For a long time, in fact until the rain ceased to beat upon the rocksjind shore, they stayed under cover. Most of the time they were silent most of the time Philip held the curly head against his breast. When the dawn began to break Tonnlbel roused herself, "I'm goln' away now," she said.

She went extremely pale and put out her hand to grasp something for support as were going to fall. She aw him rise up slowly, an expression of amazement and relief going across his face. She smiled, but what a weary littTe smile It was and how full of pleading, as if she were silently to forgive her for some deed she'd done.

T. KEMPER.J The "Old Burning Well," shown in the photo above, was located in Cumberland county, Ky., in Salt Lick Bend, near Closd's Landiug, and at a p'oinfi about seven miles on a .straight line from Burkeaville. It was drilled in the year 1902 by the Greensburg Oil Company, of Greeosburgr Penrit The men shown in the photo were members of the company. Reading from left to right, are Messrs. I. N. Boarts, Bennett, D. E. McQuade, Lowry, Sr? and Lowry, Jr. The first pay oil sand was struck at a depth of about 600 feet, and the flow of oil was something wonderful. After theell had flowed for several days, during which time it is estimated thousands of barrels were wasted, the oil caught on fire and it was impojsible to extinguish the flames until a special apparatus for putting out the fire was rushed to the scene from Pittsburg. Reports say thousands of barrels of oil were burned while the fire lasted and the sight of an immense cloud of smoke by day and a pillar of fire by night, visible for miles in ever direction, created so much excitement that people from all the surrounding countryflockedj.o the scene. After xthe fire was gotten under control the well continued to flow for three weeks, and it then pumped, according to reports, some 250 barrels daily for a period pumping was continued and after the lapsaof two .years the well began to show signs of giving out, and deeper drilling was resorted to in the ho'pe of "striking' an other oil bearing sand, but a strong stream of "Blue Lick" water was encountered, and the well was rendered worthless.
