All things considered, It waa not surprls

but Albert wiw not oven conscious or a
feollug of temptation. Ho know well
ouoiikIi who had dropped It. Hit sister
Mngglo, olghu-eii years old, very orten stood
by that gate moonlight nights, ami nover
alone. So, although he know that it must
have been George Whlltnkor who had lost
tho dollar, then wan no struggle in Al
bert's mind aa to tho propriety of kooptng
It. Ha Just kept it without nny thought
And ho spout II. That waa a procedure
which ho could not undertake without con
Idornblo euro ami precaution. His owner
(bip of the few previous dollars ho had
had was nlwnys a hollow mockery Ills

every time he hail n birthday, but ho had
never boon allowed to use it. His father

and with this end lu view he sought out

Albert called htm Jim, nod so did almost

gust that he mid Maggie would stand by
tho gate for some time, and so keep him

was not nlarmed,
Ho looked out nt tho front gato Instead
of going to bed, Just ns ho had done many

"Do you want nny torpedoe-af" nxked the
good old lady who kept the store.,
"Nnw," said Allien, with great scorn.
"Torpedoes N only good enough for girls."
Supplies having been obtained, there re
mained o n I y
two things to
do, but these
t w o wore
enough to keep
tho lioya busy
nil day. First
a safe hiding
place had to bo
fouud, and that

there were oth

bert nor James
i1M- dnrod enrry
them Into hla own house. A licking wasn't
so vary much, but It would not do to have
the powder nnd crackers confiscated.
"Say, Jim, HI toll you what," said Al
bert nt lougth. "We'll tie 'cm nil together
In a big buudle nnd keep it lu your barn
till tonight. Then nftor nil our folks has
goue to bed you fetch It over nud come
under my wludow.and I'll letdown aropo
nnd pull It up. You glvo mo tho whistle
when you come, and I'll be nil ready."
"All right," said James, nnd that wns
settled. Then It remained to quarrel about
whether thoy had spent the money to the
host advantage, James contended that
they ought to have bought some Itomnu
candles, while Albert favored the thought
of having skyrockets, and so earnestly did
each advocate his own views that they
almost emtio to blows.
After some hours, however, this subject
was forgotten in consideration of the still
more exciting question, whether any of
tho ammunition rdiould bo used thm night,
or whether It should all bo kept for the
Fourth, A boy has u great many things
to consider ou such occasions, and It was
important to decide on the bc.st way to
nvold getting licked, and at tho same time
got nil the good out of that doltni. Finally
it wns decided that it wns best to wait till
it Is a most interesting nud Instructive
thing to notice how things thnt wem to ba
tho most irrolovcnt nml Inconsequent
sometimes work together towam the most
astonishing results. In this case, If It had
not been for a hole in Mr, Whltuker's vest
pocket, a splinter, a penknife nnd a dent
little white Auger; and If Albert hadn't
oarried off two spools of cotton from Mag-JTo-bwurti.

took fully fifteen minutes lieforo that
finger was In such a condition thnt George
Whlttnkcr was able to let go of it.
Just before ho did so Albert apoko to
himself again, "Goshl" ho said, "what a
fool n feller is to kiss n gal's handl If he
wants to kiss her, why don't ho kiss her In
tho mouth? She'd n good deal druthor he
Very possibly George Whlttnkcr did not
Ho let go her baud with n llttlo sigh, nnd
slipped tho penknife into Ills vest pocket.
And the penknife slipped right through
and fell on the ground. Maggie saw It
fall nnd told him nbout It, nml ho Itmv.tl
gated things, discovering thnt tho lining
nnd pocket were both torn.
"Well, there," said he, "thnt accounts
fur It. I lost n silver dollar last night. It
oat havo slipped through that hole."
MVou must I live II mended right away,"
said Maggie, with womanly promptness.
"Come back In the sitting room."
So thoy went back, Georgo nothing loth,
and found old Mr, Wilson there rending
and smoking Ills pipe. Ho did not object to
tlio courtship thnt wits golnxLotb.bi.t on the
.ontniry approved it thoroughly, but you
would never catch him going to lied until
Maggie wns safe in her own room.
Ho looki'd up Inquiringly when they en
tered tho root i, nnd Mngglo begnn with en
tlrely unnecessary confusion to explain
what hod happened,
Mr. Wilson did not talk much, but what
he did say waa generally to tho point.
Moreover, ho was fond of a joko. Ho lis
tened while Mngglo explained, nnd then
said drylyt "Il'ml That's what conies of
a young man living alone, with no women
folks to take care of him."
George wns fully us much embarrassed
as Mngglo was nt this kind of a speech,
but there didn't seem to be nny way of
concealing his confusion, while Maggie
busied herself looking for n needle nud
thread. So ho stood still ami suffered
him. It was it Hue situation for n boy
with n dollar's worth of fun in his room,
and an Impatient chum whistling outside,
of a Fourth of July.
It seemed n long time to wait, for Albert
wim nwnko before four o'clock, but ns a
matter of fact Mr. Wilson went tip quite
enrly to his boy'a room, Kntorlng, he
found Albert fully dressed, looking out of
tlio window, listening to various noises lu
tlio village. There were tears In his eyes,
but ho brushed them nwny beforo turning
to speak to his father,
"I understand," said tho father, "thnt
you bought somo firecrackers yesterday."
"Yes, sir," said Albert.
"Iiot mo see them," said Mr. Wilson, nnd
tho boy brought out his bundle nnd opened
It. "Thnt N a line lot. Where did you
get thu money to buy them with!1"
"I found It, sir."
"Where did you llndltf"
"lly tho front gate."
"Didn't you know who It belonged to?"
"No, sir," said the hoy, hesitating a lit
tle; nml then with a desiernte burst of
couragu he saldi "Yes, I know well enough;
but, Pop, don't you know It's the Fourth
of July? I reckon when you was n boy
you wouldn't 'a' gone 'round hunting up
owners for silver dollars when thoy jumped
right up nt you, nnd you hadn't got no
money nor no llrecrackers."
Now, Mr. Wilson did not. suppose for u
minute thnt he would have done nny such
thing, nnd moreover he liked the boy'a
frankness, nml although ho did mo the
strap occasionally, believing that ho ought
to do so, he did not like It any more than
Albert did. It wasn't tho first time the
boy had put him In a quandary.
"Well, my son," ho said, not unkindly,
after ho had considered a moment, "I am
willing to make allowances, but you must
remember to bo honest nbovo nil things,
You must pay back thnt dollar."
"Yes, sir," said Albert, delighted nt get
ting off so ciu.lly.
Hut after he had escaped from the house
nnd Joined Jim, nnd tho two woro disturb
ing the peace to the best of their ability,
ho saw a well known figure coming down
tho vitiligo strvet, nnd ran toward It.
"Say, Georgo Whlttnker," ho exclaimed
' breathlessly, "nin't you going to be my
WhlttJtkcr laughed and said, "Why?"
" 'Cos if you are," said Albert, "1 don't
a'poso I'll have to lie in any great hurry
about pnyiu' back thnt dollar o' yours
what I found. It'll bo nil In tho family,
And Georgo laughed agnln, and told him
he needn't lie lu nny speclnl hurry.
And after tho firecrackers wero nil goae,
Albert said confidentially to Jim, "After
all, it makes u feller feel heaps bettor to get
his money honest, don't It?"
"I don't know," said Jim.

George laughed. "That's all right," he
said. "If anybody fouud It I hope- It was
Albert." Uut Mr. Wilson looked grave.
He said nothing, however, nnd Mngglo
presently fouud some thread and mended
tho pocket, and tho two young -K-ople weut
out to the gate again. When they got out
side Georgo gathered up his courage and
spoke desperately. "Mngglo," ho said, "I
wish you would mend all my clothes."
Maggie laughed. "Why, 1 hope they
don't nil need mending," she said.
"Of course," stammered Georgo, "I mean
when they do need It."
"Well," said Maggie, hanging her bend,
"1 don't, know but what I might under
take to do thnt,"
"Ilut I menn for always, for nil yonr
