CHAPTER V.
Then i'l! Come Back to You.
C tfc" drive limno Wechicilny
Caleb rehearsed a half score
of sj.ee lies with which he
might apprise his sister
Sarah -f the step lie hal taken, but
when the time tame fur him to employ
one- of them he forgot the entire lot
DJ bad to report to a bald and stam
mered statement of the facts, which
soitnded more like h confession of jruilt
than anythiajr eise. It had jrrown
colder with the" storm, and directly
r.fter a hastily swallowed supper, with
many indignant .dances for her broth
er. Sarah had bundled the boy off up-t-rairs
to bed. for he had come in out
of the rain as sleekly wet as a water
rat and blue lingered and blue lipped
from the cold. So it happened that
they were all alone before the lire-fhv-e
when Caleb made known his de
cision. "I've never done much of anytmnp:
for anybody but myself, you know,
Sarah." Caleb hesitatingly tried to ac
i ount for Ids conduct. '"And this seems
to nie to be as bi an opportunity as
I'll ever have. You you like the boy,
don't you. so far as you have k-come
acquainted with him':''
Yes, I like him," she assented, after
n hile.
"Of course it it comes as a surprise
to you." he nrurmured. "It is pretty
Midden, but I don't think that either
of us will ever regret it."
And then Sarah faced round toward
her brother. Her eyes were unac
countably wet, but there was laughter
on her lips.
"A surprise a a somewhat sud
den!" she faltered. "Why, I knew you
were jroinc to do it that first day when
tou came sidling up to the veranda be
hind him. I was certain of it even
then. And if you hadn't decided to
why, I'd made up my mini that I'd do
It myself if you ever came Lack. from
that endless fishing trip!';
"I've been rummaging through some
of the old chests upstairs" she added.
' Today I explored for hours and found
some of the things you used to wear
which look as though they hadn't been
worn at all. I laid some of them out
for him to put on when he gets up in
the morning. And. Cal. who'd ever be
lieve now that a plump behemoth like
you ever could have worn such such
dainty and cunning things!"
The inferred description should have
prepared Caleb, but at the moment he
failed to remeber that it was some
forty years since the garb she men
tioned had been ia vogue. Instead, he
blushed uncomfortably at the gurgle
in her throat. And so the next morn
ing, when a little figure in velvet
jacket and pantaloone velvet of the
same jet hue in which Barbara Allison
had first appeared to the boy a day or
two before stopped nt the head of the
lonsr stairway the moment was robbed
of not one whit of its sensationalism.
Tliere was something in Sarah's flut
tering delight over the boy's changed
appearance that morning which awoke
an almost hysterical impulse in her
brother.
When Caleb came back an hour lat
er, with Allison at his heels, he search
ed the house throuch without finding
the boy. In his perplexity he appealed
tii Sarah, who followed him to the
front door.
"Where's Stephen?" he asked.
Sarah nodded to Allison.
Why, I waited a half hour. Cal."
she said, "and then, when I thought
, nu ' ouruii t uf uacii. j.oi iiue, i
tent him downtown I sent him to the
Tillage"
Caleb Fceiued fairly to shrink.
:'You sent him down to the village:'
no c'linpii. uin ne uiu ne cnane ms
clothes:-"
"For pome egss." Sarah rounded out
( lie sentence. "And of course he didn't."
Suddenly her brother's face alarmed
her. "Cal." she exclaimed, "I haven't
done anything I shouldn't have done,
have 1?"
Caleb turned a wry face toward Alli
son. "In that outfit!" he groaned. "Down
to the village, and it's a lumber town!
Ho' gone, and if he doesn't have to
light his way back then I'
Sarah's alarm changed to fear in
Maullr. Sho stepped out upon the
porch.
They sat and waited, and in due
course cf time the hoy returned. As
h appeared at the gate Sarah, with a
sirauge choking sound in her throat,
half rose and then dropped weakly
back Into her chair. And even to Alli
son, w ho had fondly looked forward to
the worst, the little suit with the pret
1 v lulled cliffs was an unbelievable
v. reck. The coat had been ripped from
hem to collar and dangled loose upon
rituer side as the boy advanced toward
them, the knees of the trousers were
split till the bare skin showed through
beneath, and those portions of the fab-
rlc which were not incrusted with dirt

"Just what does this mean:-"' Caleb
altered. "Where have you been?'
He hardly recognized the boy's voice.
"I leen daown to the city," Steve
slurred the words. "I been daown to
git Miss Sarah a dozen eggs, and 1 run
into trouble daown there a-gittin' 'em."
"You'd Letter go upstairs and get into
your old clothes," Caleb advised him
then. "And I'll get you something less
less dangerous to wear before night."
Hut the boy stood rigid still.
"Will you," he asked, "will you give
me another quarter now?"
"A quarter," echoed Caleb slowly,
even while he reached into his pocket
and handed the coin to the boy. "Sow,
what do you Here, where are you
going now?"
"Why. I'm goin' back daown to the
city," he grated out. "I'm goin back
after Miss Sarah's eggs!"
Aud he went, and when he returned
the creases In tfce paper bag which
held his purchase were as fresh as
when it had left the grocer's counter.
"Well, I'm I'm hanged!" Allison
murmured, after the boy had entered
the house. "I'm hanged! You'll have
to bring that youngster over, Cal. and
introduce him to the children."
Acting upon Dexter's suggestion, the
man took Steve the very next day and
presented him to the children who
were guests in. the big stucco and
timber house: Little, shy. transparent
skinned Mary Graves and Garret Deve
reau and Archibald Wickersham the
Kight Honorable Archie. rut from
the very first Steve's lack of enthusi
asm for their company impressed itself
upon Caleb. As a matter of fact, the
boy did cross over and join in their
games the first day or two. but it was
only after Caleb himself had suggested
it. And more often than not he would
be back again before an hour had pass
ed, to sit silent and moody.
But it needed no word of Caleb's to
keep Steve t home. Without some
suggestion to urge him, the latter
showed no inclination to leave his own
yard, and yet he would sit, too. for
hours upon the top stop of the veran
da, staring In the direction of the stuc
co lodge and listening to the voices be
hind the high hedge. More and more
often Garry Devereau came over and
joined him instead, and together the
pair made almost daily trips down to
the mills. A quick intimacy had grown
up between the two boys, an intima
cy which seemed all the stranger to
Caleb because of the contrast between
them.
From the beginning Steve had
evinced an insatiable appetite for
books; he started in to devour every
thing upon which he could lay his
hands, and the Hunter library was
lined with well Btocked cases. But it
was the history volumes that drew
him most. With a fat tome upon his
knees he would sit for hours in a cor
ner upon the floor, his eyes glued to
the pages. And one day, two weeks
after the occurrence of the eggs, he
came to Sarah with a shy question, a
book in one hand. After she had
causht the drift of his query Sarah
took the volume and found that he had
been reading of the fabulous deeds of
King Arthur and A is Knights of the
Hound Table.
Steve went back to his reading after
she had finished, but ever and again
that morning his eyes, blank with pre
occupation, wandered from the type;
ever and again his ears seemed to be
straining to catch the echo of childish
trebles from the yard beyond the
hedge. And after dinner Caleb was
astonished when the boy explained, a
little awkwardly, that he was' going
over to Allison's grounds for awhile.
Allison himself passed Steve in the
hedge gap and, with a word of greet
ing, stopped to shake hands with him
gravely. So it came about that they
were sitting together, Dexter and Ca
leb, smoking in silence, when Barbara
Allison's first scream came shrillm? to
their ears. They waited, staring at
each other until the riotous clamor
which rose set them to-running across
the lawn. But the scene which met
Caleb's eyes when he burst through
the shrubbery froze him into immobil
it.v-
There was a seething pack of chil
dren around two writhing figures upon
the ground; they were all shrieking in
soprano panic all save tfarry Dever
eau. Tie, standing a little to one side.
was smiling his queer, crooked, hand
some smile, while Stephen O'Mara
mauled the Honorable Archibald Wick
crshain with true riverman thorough
ness, which meant the infliction of the
greatest possible damage in the least
possible time.
It grew very quiet - when Caleb
whirled the boy around and stood
i peering sternly down into his battle
streaked features. Allison slrodHquiet-
ly up in that moment.
"Well?" Caleb aidn't know just how
to begin, but his voice was cold. MWcll,
i young man. can you explain just what
this means? '
"uthm nutuin much, Steve re-
! plied, "only we was goin' to play King
i Arthur and the Knights of tie Hound
Table. He wanted to be her knight"
an uncomplimentary thumb indicated
the Hon. Archie "and and so did I."
This time his eyes went to Barbara,
who was listening, her teeth sunic in
Iiat lin. "He wanted to be her knigCt,
an' an' he ain't got no call to be. be
cause in case of trouble or anything
he couldn't Durtect her. He couldn't
fight good enough to take good keer o'
her. because I kin fight better, l I
just licked him to prove it."
But. in the davs when knighthood
was in flower. Steve," Caleb explained
ponderously, "the the fair ladies al
ways chose their own knights, difln t
they?"
And just then the little girl, her eyes
twin shafts of searing scorn, curled
her lips at him and fairly spat out the
words in her shaking rage.
"You you my knight?" she halt
whispered. "You!" And she turned
her back and went, solicitously, to
ward Archie and his rumpled clothes.
Even Allison stopped smiling, ever
Devereau forgot his curious amuse

ment nt the livid change which came
over Steve's face with that answer
whi h she flung at him. The boy fell
sway a step before her tierce little
visage; he crooked one arm over the
cheek where her lists had beaten the
skin pink a moment before. And then
her meaning struck him like a blow be
tween the eyes.
"I ain't good enough to be your
knight, am i?"' he accused her in a
hushed and vibrant voice. "I I don't
know enough, nor I can't talk good
enough to he j-onr knight. I ain't good
enough fer you. But I'm a-goin' to be
do you hear? I'm a-goin' to le. An'
when I am when I am then I'll come
back to you!"
This time, rigid as a lance, he disap
peared from sight. Caleb stood star-
inz at the gTound. Allison stood and
stared at the horizon.
Steve did not come downstairs for
supper that night, and when he failed
to appear at the breakfast hour both
Caleb and Sarah mounted to his room,
fear in their hearts. The bed had not
been slept in. The sheets were not
even disarranged, but there was a
scrap of paper pinned to one pillow
slip. It wasn't written in "book lan
guage," that short message, for it was
not his grain, but his heart which had
phrased it:
I'm a-comin back I'm comin' back to
you some day when they won't be no
need fer you to be ashamed fer me. I'm
takin my new clothes with mo localise I
knowed you would a-wanted me to and
the shoes too. I'm askin' you to take keer
of ole -Samanthy til I come fer her and
Miss Sarah ain't pot no call to worry, fer
I could always take keer o' myself.
It was signed "Stephen O'Mara."
Sarah's face went white when she
had read it through. Her knees weak
ened Tinder her. and she had to sit
down.
"Why. Cal why, Cal, he s he's
gone!" Fhe quavered.
And Caleb nodded down into her
stricken face.
"Yes, he he's gone!" he breathed.
Farah swallowed hard. Then two
bright tears crept out from under her
eyelids and went coursing down her
cheeks. -fhe rose and groped her way
to her own room.
Caleb found Barbara Allison waiting
in the living room when he, still numb
f rem the shock, went back downstairs.
Shex came up to him and stood a mo
ment, twining the fingers of one hand
within those of the other.
'I want to see Stephen, please, Un
cle Cal," she faltered.
Caleb drew a deep and unsteady
breath.
"Steve isn't here, Barbara," he said
as gently as he could.
The child didn't understand.
"Father sent me over to apologize.
she explained slowly. "I'm to tell him
that I'm sorry. But I I want to tell
him, too. that if I couldn't have him
for ray knight 1 I wouldn't ever havo
any knight at all!"
Caleb felt a tightening at his throat
which made speech difficult.
"But Steve has gone away," he man
aged to gulp.
A shadow came into the big dark
eyes lifted to his. .
"He'll be back for breakfast, won't
he?" she asked hopefully.
"I'm afruid not. Barbara. I'm afraid
now that he may never come back-
again."
She didn't understand what he meant
at first, so Caleb tried to explain. Bat
when his voice broke, and trailed off
into a husky whisper there was no

further neea or explanation, she rah
then and threw herself in a passion of
tears upon a window seat in the cor
ner, caieo touna nis chair. And after
a time he felt a small hand touch his
sleeve; -he felt a wet cheek pressed
"Oh, don't you feel so fcadly, too,
Uncle Cal," Barbara -sobbed. "Please,
please! Because he is coming back!
He told me he would; he told me he
would himself!"

Ben Brooks, Main strest, Platts

bad cold, it left me with a severe
attack of kidney complaint. I had
pain in my back and hips and at
times it extended into my shoulder
blades. I got completely past going
and was laid up for two weeks. My
head ached for hours at a time and
was subject to dizzy spells, during
which my sight became blurred. Half
a box of Doan's Kidney Pills checked
these troubles, and after using two
boxes, procured from Edward Kynott
& Co.'s drug store, I began to regain
my health." (Statement given Apri
10, 1912.)
On February 22, 1916, Mr. Brooks
