JOSEPH C. LINCOLN,
It was some yrars ngo tli.it I

wasn't quite so big then na ho Is

was bended was tnoro than evident.
Joseph C. Lincoln was born on
Cnpo Cod and started his career
at an early ai;e as an aitlnt. but
shortly dlsi'overod that Ids talents

Among his first writings are his

appeared, but tho book has Rained

She hail come from (.'ape Ann to Cape
foil to act as housekeeper and com
panion for old Mrs. Halley nt Truniet.
On the first of September she hail
taken a day's holiday and, In common
with nt least one-half of Truinet's pop
ulation, excursloned to the country
1'alr at Ostahle. There, lonely in all
Hie great crowd, she had stopped he
fore the booth where one might, for the
small sum of Hvo cents, toss three
lines at a rack of pegs. These pegs
were numbered. If you were fortunate
enough or skillful enough to ring a
peg, one received a prize. The prizes
were more or less valuable prin
cipally less. A red-faced person with
pink and white shirt sleeves made

bawled. "Here y' nrol Toss 'em In

and ring 'em out!"
Lurella noticed Mint while many
toed them In, but few succeeded In
ringing them out. Then a newcomer
laid down a nickel and prepared to try
his luck. lie was, she thought, n
striking looking man, thick set, broad
shouldered, Minburned, wearing a blue
uniform with bru-s buttons and a blue
yachting cap. Like her, nnd therefore
unlike the majority of the people on
the fair grounds, he seemed to be
quite alone. She had been on the
point of moving on ; now she stayed to
watch him make the trial.
Two rings he tossed and each shot,
although close, was a miss. 'The
third, however, fairly encircled a peg.
The red-faced person lifted both pink
and white shirtsleeves In the ulr.
"Look at that!" he bellowed. "Look
at It! The gent lings number thirty

you are, sir! There's the genuwlne

your wife put It on now and give the
congregation a treat?"
Lurella was standing beside the win
ner of the prize. The red-faced per
son was dramatically olTeting her the
comb. She blushed furiously. Thu
lookers-on, divining the mistake,
cheered and laughed. She hurried
away. A moment later she felt a
touch on her elbow. Tho broad
shouldered man in the blue uniform
had followed her. Ills embarrassment
seemed to be as great as hers.
"Ma'am," ho stammered; "I I wish
you'd take It. I I'd like you to have
it first rate. I'm all alone and and It
ain't a bit of use to me, honest."
She drew herself tip. Lurella was
nothing if not proper. She hud never
flirted In all the thirty-live years of
her life. Having read a great deal,
she knew exactly what and how to re
ply. "Sir!" she exclaimed.
"Ves'm," said thu man, removing thu
yachting cap. "I wish you would take
it. That that feller was a fool and If
you say so I'll punch his nose. Shall
Sho was, momentarily, Bturtlod out
of her propriety.
"Oh, no I" she exclaimed.
"I will If you say so. lie's n smart

Hut but, honest, 1 do wish you'd take

and and I uiu't got nobody of my own
to glvo It to. I'm n stranger 'here.
Won't you take It, please? I 1 don't
mean It fresh nor tiothln'."
Lurella looked at him. Ho was
about her age, or a little older. Ho
had an honest face, If she ever saw
one. He was blushing and did not at
all resemble tho bold, had lady-killers
of whom she had read In her favorite
She hesitated. Then . . . well,
then her own romance began.
Hefore she returned to Truniet that
evening she had leurned much concern
ing thu man in thu blue uniform. His
nainu was Obed Kills. Ho was a
bachelor, had been to sea In his
-younger days, had since worked hard
at various employments on shore, nnd
was now acting as watchman and care
taker In charge of the property of the
big hotel nt Orham. During the sum
njer he was in command of the hotel
pier nnd boats, but now, as the season
was over, had more leisure. Ills
wages, he Informed her with satisfac
tion, "went on Just the same, summer
or winter." lie was a Methodist, a
Republican, and his life was Insured
for two thousand dollars, lie was
alone In the world, Just as shu was.
Together they Inspected the poultry
and live stock exhibits. Ho treated
her to salt-water taffy, leu cream soda
and a "shore dinner" In the refresh
ment tent. They saw the trotting races
and the balloon ascension. Hefore
bidding her good-by at the railroad sta
tion, he informed her that he owned an
automobile, and, If she "hadn't no ob
jection" be would kind of like to drive
oer one of these days and take her
The following Saturday afternoon
he did drive over. The ride was de
lightful; thu little car rattled and
"skipped" but kept going. A week
latei' he came again, and twice during
the week following. A month later
he proposed marriage. It was then
that she told him of her other love af
fair. When she was eighteen she had
been engaged to a man who kept a
billiard saloon at Pigeon Cove. Later
she broke the engagement.
"I found out," she said with a shud
der, "that he was dissipated. He
never told me, but once I saw him
drunk Intoxicated, I moan. He had
been drlnkln' whisky then, but when
he couldn't get that ho drank Jamaica

I'm telling you this now, Obed. Tho

ly. "What do you say, Lurella? Will
you marry me?"
She said yes, and, six weeks later
they were married and she came to
Orham to live with him In the little
cottago at the rear of the hotel prop
erty. Now, a very happy wife, she
was making him n cranberry pie be

The pie baked, and tho table In the

who was sauntering toward her across
the back yard. His clothes, his hat,
his unshaven face, dassilled lilin In

not afraid of tramps and asked lilin
what he wanted.
"Ma'am," he said, "does anybody

"Mr. Obed Kills lives hero," she re
piled; "hut he's out. I'm Mrs. Kills."
Tho tramp nodded. "They told me
this was his hnng-out," he observed.
"I thought I'd Just stop in and see
him. So you're his wife, oh? I didn't'
know ho was married,"
"Come In and sit down," she said,
lie came Into tho spotless kitchen and
sat down upon ono of her freshly
