When Jim Ulake was seventeen
years old, he decided to run uwny
from home. The two boys talked It
over many times. To the scanty
hoard In Jim's po.ses-don John Hurt
added thirty-five dollars all the
money he had saved from sums giv
en him at various times by Peter
Hurt. So, with foiV odd dollnrs in

1-ittIe did these two boys think, as
they parted that October afternoon,
that their acts and passions anil lives
would one day be woven by fate Into
n web of marvelous workmanship.
Three years elapsed before Jessie
Garden returned to the Ulshop farm.
John Hurt was now twenty years old,
and had successfully passed tho ex
amination which admitted him to
Harvard. General Garden came with
Joi'.Hie. dellghtod with the prospect of
a week's rest In the old house.
General Garden was an enthusias
tic horseman. Jessie wns still un
packing her trunks when her father
sent word that tho carriage was
ready, and that she was to drive with
him.' A tew minutes later they were
speeding down the old beach road.
They drove for miles along the wind
ing,' shaded roads. Tho breeze came
cool and salt from the ocean, and tho
air was tragrant with the breath or
A bit of tho harness had become
unbuckled. Handing the reins to Jes
sie General Garden stepped to tho
ground to adjust it. Ills feet had
hardly touched tho ground when a
prowling hunter, a few rods away,
discharged a gun. The report was
tenilying. and tho affrighted horses
leaped ahead. Jessie was thrown vi
olently backward, tho lines slipping
from her hands. General Garden
sprang for the horses' licntlr- im In
stant too late. He caughll one
"glimpse of his daughter's whltu face

the hammering hoofs. Could nny
human being hold fast In such a po
sition. At th" turn in the road the general
distlrctly saw a man clinging to the
horses' bit:, bruised by the swaying
pole a plgtu who dared check the
(light of giants. They swerved
sharply at tho curve. The off horse
stumbled, lurched sideways and fell.
There was a crash: the sickening
sound of splintered wood nnd clinking
steel; then a silence, as tho dust lift
ed and revealed tho Jagged outlines
ot a mass of wreckage.
As General Garden neared the fate
ful spot he saw an old man run from
the Hurt yard and plunge Into tho
wreck-. A moment later ho saw some
thing In the rescuer's hnnds. A
crumpled blue hat above dark curls
showed plain in contrast to tho white
hair of the aged giant, who handled
the little figure as if It were n feath
er, laid It gently by the side of the
road, and again darted Into the twist
General Garden breathed a silent
prayer. He was a few roils away
when Jessie moved slowly, lifted her
he.id nnd sprang to her feet.
'I'm not hint, papa!" she exclaimed
bravely. "1 urn not hurt a bit. Oh,
what has happened?"
"Thank God! Thnnk God!" Ho
caught Josale In his arms, gazed
fondly Into her eyes, nnd tenderly
General Garden turned to the aid of
Peter Hurt. Tangled In tho harness,
a horse was plunging nnd struggling
In an attempt to regain his feet. Tho
other horse was dead, and beneath
his shoulder was pinioned the leg of
a young man. Wood was trickling
down his face, and he lay in the dust
of the road, limp and deathlike. His
right hand still grasped the bit; his
head was near tho hoofs of the fran
"Hold that horse's head down!" or-
dered the old man. General Cordon
throw his weight on tho beast's neck.
Jessie was hovering near, wringing
her hands in pity and excitement.
"When I lift that horse will you
drag my boy's leg from under?"
"Yes, sir; oh, hurry, sir!"
Grouching down, Peter Hurt throw
tho bend of tho dead animal across
his shoulder. He grasped tho trace
with one hand nnd tho foreleg with
the other. In his prime ho had raised
twelve hundred pounds, dead weight.
With a heave of his massivo should
ers ho raised the forward part of tho
horse clean from tho ground, nnd Jes
sie quickly released tho pinioned
limb of the motionless young man.
Tho old man gathered tho body In
his arms, and carried It to a grass
plot by the side of the road. Ho rest
ed his gray head for a moment on tho
young man's chest, nnd hoard tho
faint flutter of tho heart. In accents
which thrilled Jessie Carden ho ex
claimed: "Ho lives! He lives! Praiso God,
my boy Is not dead!"
At that moment Jasper nppeared
and wns dispatched for Dr. Handnll.
General Cardon cut tho traces, and
the uninjured horso regained his foot.
Mrs. Jasper brought a basin of wator,
and when General Garden joined tho
silent group Jessie wns washing tho
du t and blood from tho white face
a. d smoothing back tho curling locks.
"Why, It's John Wirt! It's John
Hut, papa!" sho exclaimed, tears
si lilng to her beautiful eyes. "Will
1: die, Mr. Hurt? Will ho dlo? Oh,
. pa, Is there nothing wo can do?"
"Ho will not die, my child," said
t'.io old mnn In a clear, calm volco.
"It Is written that ho shall llvo these
Just an Dr. Randall arrived, John
regained consciousness and begged a
glass of water. Jessie nnd her father
waited anxiously for tho physician's
vfrdlct. Tho old man appeared first,
and though ho spoke not, his radiant
fnco told tho story.
"He Is badly cut and bruised In sev
eral places, but no hones aro broken,"
said Dr. Randall. Jessie clapped her
hands for joy. "Ho will bo up and
about In a week."
Jasper was ready with tho Hurt
family carriage; and, leaving a kind
ly mossago for tho grandslre, thoy re
turned to tho HlBbop house. Josslo
found that sho had a few" bruises, but
she laughed at her aches, and talked
only of tho horolsm of hrnvo John
Hurt. Tho next day sho sent him a
beautiful bunch of roses, and another
ench succodtng day until word cam
from Dr.-Randall that tho young man
was able to sit up and might receive
visitors. They drove to the farm
house and were ushered Into the
library John's stitdy-room for seven '
General Garden advanced and i
grasped John's hand. "My boy, God
bless you! I do not know how to
thank you. Jessie, have you nothing
to say to tho young man who saved
"I never thought," said Jessie,
plnclng her hnnds In his, "that the
boy who taught me how to catch ,
crabs would one day save my life.
Hut ynt know I always told Miss Mai
den that you weieu't rlffrnrf, and you
seo I was right!"
John looked handsomo as ho lay
back In the great nrm-chalr. "I'm
glnd 1 had a chanco to be of service
to one 1 had met before," ho said, as
Jessie took a seat besldo him;
"though I confess 1 should not recog
nize you as tho llttlo girl who visited
here soveral years ago. You aro a
young lady now, and I should hardly
dare address you as Jessie, and that's
tho only name 1 know you by In thoao
"I am not yet sixteen, nnd you can
call mo Jesslo until 1 tell you not to.
Can't he, papa?"
"1 suppose so," said General Car
den. "Sho In n spoiled child, Mr.
Hurt." turning to tho old gentleman,
"and I have ceased making rules, lest
sho should brenk them."
During tho hour which followed.
Jesslo and John talked of a score of
topic?. John deftly turning the con
versation from tho runaway accident.
How dainty, yet how healthy, Jesslo
looked! The July Biin had begun Its
etching of tan. Tho slender neck,
where tho brown tresses protected It,
wns dazzling, shading away to cheek
and brow In blendlngs of cream, pink
and tan, which defied touch of brush
or skill of words. Tho nrched eye
brows and tho dark silken lashes
framed eyes which glowed with tho
smouldering fires of dnwnlng woman
hood. Tho month was not too small,
and the lips were ruddy as rlpo cher
ries. And this wns tho being he had
saved from mutilation against tho
cruel rocks! As ho looked at her,
heard the rippling music of her volc
and felt tho subtle Inspiration of her
presence, tho thought came that thero
was something selfish In his Joy and
Whut was It? Is love selfish?
John Hurt sprang Into his saddle
with an ease that showed complete
recovery from tho runaway accident,
and cantced to Jesslo Cordon's side.
They waved their hands gaily to Mrs.
Bishop, and galloped away under tho
arching maples that formed an ave
nue before the old mansion. It was
John's fourth visit since Jessie's ar
rival, and his suggestion ot a rldo to
Hull had been smilingly accopted.
An hour later they stood on tho
heights above Point Allcrtou. Bolow,
tho wide crescent of Nantaskct Beach
swung to the south and east; within
It "crawled tho wrinkled sea." Every
foot of ground was hallowed by his
tory and legend. From that point
their ancestors watched tho Chesa
peake as sho sailed proudly out to
light the Shannon; thero they had
wopt when thoy learned that the
bravo lawrenco had gono to his death
Bhoutlng encouragement to his crow.
Thence Captain John Smith first
sighted tho harbor. Tho red warriors
of King Philip camped whoro thi;y
stood. A short dlstnnco away tho
Mary and John had anchored with
her freight ot pioneers. A mile to
the north stood Boston Light, and
they pictured Ijorrt Howe's fleet sail

GAVE UP HER MEAL TICKET.
Comical Mistake Made by Woman in
New York Theater.
At a recent matinee In a Now York
theater a mlddlo-agod woman bought
a single ticket for the gallery, and
mounted tho stairs to tho upper part
of tho house, says tho Now York
Times. Sho handed to the ticket tall
er at tho gallery entrance a check ot
tho size and shape of tho gallery tick
ets, which gave no coupons attached.
He dropped it Into tho box, and tho
llttlo woman hurried to find a good
Tho first act had been on but a llt
tlo while when the woman hurried,
almost out of breath, to tho ticket
taker and cried:
"I.ot me have my ticket, please!"
"Tho ticket 1 gave you. Let me
have It again!"
"Hut It's in tho box, locked up," re
plied tho mnn, coldly.
"Oh, dear mo! Oh, dear me!" the
llttlo woman wallod.
"What's tho matter?" asked tho
man, growing very slightly sympa
thetic. "I gave you tho wrong ticket," sho
said, weeplug. "Hero here's yours."
And she drew from her handbag the
ticket that should have been taken
"Hut what was tho other ono?" de
manded tho man In astonishment.
"It wbh my meal ticket," sho
sobbed, "and I can't cat."
Tho llttlo woman would not go hack
to her scat until sho had been assured
by tho man that Bhe should havo lier
meal ticket, which sho afterward re
covered. Not a Shopper.

Ho Yes, Indeed. Sho can't force
