wind Small lakes especially if they aro surrounded by high hills are al ways subject to sudden squalls The Sea of Galilee lay at the bottom of a very deep valley feet below the level of the Mediterranean sea The rugged hUla that rise abruptly on both sides of the little lake are broken by huge gorges through which the wind sweeps down in whirls and eddies upon the water The tropical heat of the valley partly accounts for the sudden ness and fury of these storms The waves beat into the boat It is hard er for a boat to lIve in a sea of choppy whitecapped waves on a little lake than on

is not probable that young Scund ever gambled in his lire before unless perhaps at school he played 111opunctual in his atten ance at tjjeof fice and with a good capacity for uusi ness His salary was small and till consciousness of this made him carry iris natural modesty to an extreme but he lived within his means and even put a trifle aside for a rainy day That was Scundling The way it came about was that Plimson the outoftown order clerk had come into possession of a one fifth ticket of the Honduras Lottery company guaranteed by the Honduras government He had Invested two dollars in this security but as it was nearing the end of the week and his finances were at a low ebb he to make up a pool of eight among hisIfellow employes which would his and their Interests to the modest amount of 23 cents each which seemed less like plunging Scundling shook his head at first when Plimson made the proposal but when it appear that his S5 cents was absolutely needed to make up the pool he handed over the coin with the remark that a foolI pad his money were soon parted Oh I dont know said Plimson That ticket may rake oft the capital prize and that wouldnt seem so foolish Two hundred thousand dollars isnt found growing on every bush Youre mistaken said Scundling The bushes are full of em Theres millions all around us inviting us to gather em Inonly theyve got a mile string to em I dont expect to get that quarter back but I guess I can afford to lose it Matte a note of the number anyway said Plimson I may try to switch It on you If that isnt a lucky one theres no virtue in ninesfour of em dyou see Nine to begin with and then eight and one nine seven and two nine and five and four nine See 9S17254 Nine million chances to four that you lose said Scundling The drawing was to be three weeks later and Scundling promptly forgot all aliout it He had plenty of other things to think of the chief in importance being Mabel Matters were not going well there Mabel herself was as sweet as ever and gave him no un easiness but Mabels father was getting worse and worse He had never thought favorably of Scundling as a suitor for his daughters hand main taining that the young man was what he termed a stickinthemud I dont pnortpoorer than Jobs turkeybut wasnt satisfied to plug along that way and than chap seems to be He may be fcavinp but hes holding down the same job at the same wages he was that years ago when he first came mooning around That doesnt look he took a decidedly unfriendly attitude toward poor Scundling who was doing the very best he could am went the length of telling him a week after the lotteryticket purchifte that he would better cease his visits to the house until his prospects looked a lit tie rosierand Scundling dejectedly acquiesced Srumlliug was sitting in his room ore evening meditating upon his happy lot when the insidious demon of chance suddenly whispered in his ea and he straightway extracted from his posketbook a slip of paper on which leas written the figures 9817254 and looted at them with a dawning inter est What if the number should prove to be the winning one There real was a chance of it alter all Som mimbgr had to win If it was a swindle at least Jt would occur to the swindlers that It would be well to tHaw one Yankee to win if only to en courage the others He had heard that common card sharpers pursued that policy Then the magic nines but that was a superstition of course Scundling sat there for perhaps an hour regarding that slip of paper and by the time he put it back In his pocket he had acquired what the vul grit term a hunch In the course of a few days th hunch developed into an absolute certainy Scundling had figured out that his share of the prize would be 25000 Well he had tfiat 5000 as good as in the bank It was all ove but the drawing As beseemed such a capitalist his manner took on a cer tain dignity and selfassurance which before had been lacking His face grew brighter as he felt himself re lieved from the anxious thought of struggling for years on small and his air more generally alert large part of his burden of modest slipped from him and his courage ros to such an extent that he decided to g and see Mabel He had enjoyed a delicious halfhour with her teteatete in the familiar hick parlor before her father enteredlSwindling however instead of appear ing embarrassed greeted him him with a confident and cheerful bearing tha f seemed to take the old somewhat aback Instead of the ex posion Mabel and Scundling expected he merely said to the young man like to see you a few moments whe you can spare the time promptlyfollowed his prospective fatherriniaw Into another room Well said Mabels father 41 thought I told you to keep away Until I had some better prospects

Davis said Scundling still sustained by fris in tell baveI said of being I two square if you werent a hustler so suppose you have got some sort of a move on you But Ill suggest that you keep away until you are at liberty to tell me all the same He held out his baud in a more friendly manner than he had ever shown and said Good night noel Scundling went back to label Ill take this evening any way he said to her father Then Ill keep away for two weeps if it will make you feel easier Somethings happened to him said the old gentleman when he had recovered from the shock Hes changed certainly and I think for the better ouch the same remark was made by Scundllngs employers the next week after Scundlinjj had made an astonishing demand for the position of cashier no less which he had been filling temporarily during the illness of the 50yearold incumbent He said he un derstood that Mr Dobsey was not going to return and that the firm was Zooiiing for somebody to take his place fhe firm admitted itbut Of course I wouldnt have applied otherwise said Soundliug coolly nut it seemed to me that I could dot ie work better than an outsider and since have taken hold of it have seen where several radical changes might be made in the present system that would be to the firms advantage Ill just outline them to you now He tool a pencil and a pad of paper and proceeded to a demonstration of his plans and in about a minute the two members of the firm were hanging over his shoulder in undisguised interest When he had concluded t1lel looked at each other Well said the senior well to these matters under consideration Mr Scundling Your idea may not be MEDITATING tFOX HIS raleP y a bad one but well this would quite a jump in promotion for you I havent taken any of that for some tinter said Suundling might do me good Well well we shall have to thi this over said the senior partner Scundling went out he turned to associate Did you think that boy had it in him he asked- didnt said the partner Until very lately thought he was a plodder but with no snap to h impore Hes changed A week later the drawing of the Hon duras lottery was announced Seundlings air castles came lumbl down with a crash that nearly over threw his reason He came out of the Irisrfolly but with all hope crushed out of him for the time When he thought of abel he was in despair and at filethe idea of his presumption in apply for Mr Dobseys place he blushed to 1the tips of his ears One morning he went to the office and saw a new manto at his old desk and his heart sunk Atup the same moment he was called into the partners room and informed that the firm had decided to give him the position he had applied for at what seemed a magnificent increase of sal ary When the wedding took place the bride
