"When tb mist is on the river , and the haze Is on the hills ,
And the promise of the .springtime all the ample nenven lills ;
When the shy things in the wood-haunts and the hardy on the plains
Catch up heart and feel a leaping life through winter sluggish veins ;
Then the summons of the morning like a bugle moves the blood ,
Then the spul of man grows larger , like a flower from the bud ;
For the hope of high Endeavor is a cordial half divine ,
And the banner cry of Onward calls the laggards into line.
There Is glamour of the moonlight when the stars rain peace belo'.v ,
But the stir and smell of morning is a better thing .to know ;
While the night is hushed and holden and transpierced by dreamy song ,
Lo , the dawn brings dew and lire and the rapture of the strong.
ND If it was the last word I'd
ever be speakiu' , I couldn't make
It different It's not that I'll be
keepln' you from her , Larry Dugau ,
but you can't have us both , and that's
the truth I'm telliu' . "
"Now , Kitty , darlin' , don't be wrongIng -
Ing your pretty face with the hard
words and cross temper. It's you I'm
wantin' and no other. Sure can't a man
be lookin' pleasant at another lass once
In a while and still be true to the one
he's promised ? "
"Not you , Larry Dugan , when you're
promised to me. It's either the one or
the other , and from the looks o' the
case I'm thlnkin' it's the other. I bid
you good-day , Mr. Dugan , and good
luck to you and'Rosie Martin. Good-
day , Mr. Dugan , I wish you well. "
Kitty swept away with a fine swirl
of her skirts and left her lover in a
condition of open-mouth wonder.
"Well , I'll be " he did .not finish
his sentence , for Kitty was still within
hearing and turned back to flaunt in
his face , "suit yourself , Mr. Dugan. "
She was gone like a flash before
Larry could gather his wits for the
SHE RAN" ox AS D ox.
words which should calm her. Shaking
his head gloomily , he continued to stare
at the place where Kitty had been , tryIng -
Ing to adjust his mind to the light
ning-like change of conditions.
Kitty's moods and tempers were us
flashes of powder and just about as
lasting. Larry , slow Larry , was steady
and unchanging , and h could not fol
low the way that Kitty led through the
maze of her caprices. They had quar
reled before , at least Kitty had quar
reled , but never like this. Never be
fore had she left him in anger. With
her It .was a quick word and as quick
a contrition which craved forgiveness ,
and was passionately repentant Larry
thought he had learned to understand
her , but this was something of which
he had never dreamed.
Kitty and Larry , both children of
Erin , belonged to the railroad which
made the small town through which it
passed. Kitty was the daughter of one
of the track men whose duty it was to
keep watch over a section of the rail
way. Larry was an engineer , lately
promoted to a passenger engine , and
planning to be married soon because of
the increase In his salary. Rosie , the
Rosle who seemed to be making trou
ble , was a waitress at the lunch coun
ter in the railway station. She was a
dashing , handsome Rosle , with black
hair and eyes and a brilliant color and
flashing white teeth , wnich she loved
to display In smiles , bestowed impar
tially on all mankind that came near
her , but she had not thought of harm
ing Kitty when she talked to Larry and
served him his wedges of pie , washed
down with great gulps of coffee. And
Larry would not have been human If
he had not responded In kind and ex
changed jest for jest with the smiles
thrown in for good nature.
Probably no harm would have come
of all this , had there not been another
\vho wanted Kitty. She was the pret
tiest girl In the tovn , and combined
with her prettiness were a ready wit
and a whimsical turn of rnind that made
her .say and do the unexpected. Beside
all these charms there was no better
housewife in the whole village. Kitty
and her father lived together in a box
of a cottage , sweet and shining with
The other who wanted Kitty was * not
a man like Larry big , slow , good-look
ing , honest Larry , who would have
given his heart to Kitty's tread , and
being so sure of himself he could not
compass that she might doubt him.
The other had whispered in Kitty's ear
sentences filled with poison. He did
not say as much as he looked when he
coupled Larry's and Rosle's names to
gether , but he made her feel that he
thought her an object of pity , and this
was bitter to a girl like Kitty.
And so it came about that she flashed
out her wrath at Larry , and , without
giving him "time to choose , turned him
over to Rosie. Then no sooner was she
out nf Ids Right than tears blinded her
eyes until she could hardly tell where
she was going. And Larry , in the cab
of his engine , with his hand ou its
throttle , felt a dull ache at his heart
that goaded him to desperation. He
did not care whether he lived or died.
He would go straight to destruction
as fast as his engine could take him ,
were it not for those he held in his
care. The sweetest , most lovable girl
in the world , for all of her tempers ,
was his no longer , and what was the
use of living without Kitty ?
Here were two young people making
themselves miserable over nothing , and
feeling that the world had come to an
end because they had quarreled. The
one could not be content without the
other , because so far as they were con
cerned they were the only ones living
who really counted. Kitty had told him
to go to Rosie , but he intended to go
to the devil instead , cr some other
place equally disastrous.
Kitty , in her turn , found many rea
sons for self-pity , and wept oceans of
tears at the visions she conjured.
Larry , guiding his engine along the
track past the door of Kitty's cottage ,
kept his eyes turned sternly away and
the whistle of his engine silent What
was the use of his usual greeting ?
The cottage presented a blank front
with no Kitty at the door or window.
How was he to know that she was hid
den behind a window curtain , an hour
before it was time for his coming ,
watching and listening for the distant
roar of his train ?
The days sped by until they num
bered three , which to the parted lovers
seemed like years of estrangement.
Larry avoided going where Rosie was.
and , manlike , felt that ne hated her as
the cause of his trouble. Kitty , in pub
lic , was careless and gay. When she
was ulone it was another story.
Neither were turning toward recovery ,
and the very weather itself was in ac
cord with their misery. Two of the
three days since 'they nad quarreled
were dark and threatened a storm. It
was a time of lowering skies , and in
the wind there sounded moaning voices.
The third day the storm broke early in
the morning , drenching the earth with
a cold rain that fell in torrents.
"It's a bad time for the railroad , "
Kitty's father said when he started out
in the evening on his duties of inspec
tion. "I'm feeling bad myself , wid the
fever and a head that's splitting wid
aching , but I must watch , this night"
' 'Let me go , father , " Kitty entreated.
"You're too sick to go out in the storm.
Let me go in your place. "
"And for why ? " returned her father.
"It's not woman's work I'm doing.
Kape .to the house , gin , wid a light in
the window for me and Larry. It's
the boy's run to-night , wid a big trainload -
load of people. It's an excursion he's
bringing back , bad luck to the night and
the rain that's going to do harm. Do
you mind the culvert , girl , just below ?
I'm thinking it's there we'll have trou
ble wid the rising water and the soft
ground underneath , it's there I'll be
watching. "
Kitty saw her father go out in the
night , with many forebodings. He was
really too ill to be athis _ post , but what
could she do , save to stay at home and
obey his orders ? She put a light in the
window as he had directed and sat
down to wait and watch for an un
known danger which seemed impend
ing. The tempest , increasing in fury ,
dashed the rain in sheets against the
windows. The little cottage , buffeted
by the gale , shook on its foundations.
Kitty , with her imagination kindled ,
sat cowering in fear , longing desperate
ly to do something , she knew not what ,
but wishing most of all that she had
Larry and her father In safe keeping.
Within the silent house the clock
ticked and clucked loudly in the lulls
of the storm. It was almost time for
her father to be making his return trip
over the section. Kitty wrapped her
self in a shawl and went to the door ,
gazing out through the darkness. There
was nothing abroad but the storm , and
that was in a wild fury. The rain
drove around her ; the wind caught at
her shawl , almost snatching it away
from her hold.
Where was her father ? Where was
Larry ? It was nearly the hour for his
train. Excursions were usually belated
and it was impossible to tell exactly
when Larry's train would pass. What
was it her father had said about the
culvert ? Why didn't he return ? The
next moment her question was answer
ed. She saw1 him come staggering out
of the blackness of the night , struggling
toward home , falling on his knees , ris
ing again with an effort , and moving
unsteadily with uncertain feet that
seemed beyond his control. She rushed
to meet him and almost dragged him
Into the house , where , overcome by
weakness , he collapsed , a wet heap on
the floor.
"I'm done , girl , " he gasped. "There
ain't another move in me. The lantern
broke. I had to get home for another.
The culvert , girl ! " he cried ; "it's under
water there's danger. Help me to get
back. For God's sake , girl , help me to
get back ! "
He struggled to rise. His limbs re
fused to fill their oflice and he fell In
a heap again. "I'm done , " he muttered
with a shuddering sigh , and was silent
. Kitty , torn between fear fur her
'father , and fear for Larry , for a mo
ment was distraught
"What shall I do ? What shall I do ? "
shs moaned , wringing her hands.
Then her reason returned. There were
more to be considered than Larry and
her father. She dragged the uncon
scious man close to the fire , and cover
ed him warmly. "Stay there , father , "
she crooned , as to a little child. "Stay
there and be warm. I'll not be long
gone , father. Don't worry ; I'll run to
the culvert"
AVhile she was talking she made her
preparations. She slipped off her long
skirts and put on a short one. She cov
ered her shoulders with a warm , rough
jacket and protected her feet and
ankles with a pair of rubber boots she
wore in wet \veather. Her head she
left bare. "My hair can't blow off , "
she said to herself , "and anything else
would. "
She found a lantern , and lighting It ,
sped out into the night , running like a
deer down the track toward the endan
gered culvert
"Please God , let me be in time , " she
prayed with sobbing breath. "It's oth
ers beside Larry. God , it Isn't him
alone I'd be saving , " she Implored , feel
ing vaguely that she must impress the
Deity that her motives were not all
"Please , God , " she entreated ; "please ,
God , let me get there in time. "
She could feel the rails vibrating
under the weight of the distant train.
Breasting the storm with the wind
pitting Its force against her , she ran
on and on , stumbling and almost fall
ing , but always pressing onward until
but a short distance lay between her
and the flooded culvert. The water
was sweeping in a swift current across
the track. She stopped at , the edge of
the flood and stood there waving a dan
ger signal with the lantern. The train
was near enough for her to hear its
roar and rumble. The great headlight
shone like a large eye of fire , ever
growing bigger and brighter.
She felt so little and helpless out
there in the blackness. Would Larry
see her ? Would he stop in time ? The
eye of fire showed no sign of halting.
Perhaps she was too little for him to
see. Perhaps she was not waving the
lantern at al ! "he looked at her arm
which she had kept in rotary motion
until it was growing numb. The lantern
was describing a circle in the air , help
ing her to save Larry. She heard a
crash like the piling together of iron
wheels. She heard the loud hiss of es-
taping steam , then she could hear noth
ing more. Her lantern was still de
scribing a circle in the air. She felt
as if she must go on swinging it for
ever. She heard voices shouting. She
heard the thud of running feet Other
lanterns than hers began to spangle
the night They were on the other side
-of the flood , but some one was making
his way cautiously toward her. She
could hear the splash of water as he
moved , and above all she could hear
the engine panting like some wild thing
spent from flight
Some one big and strong and protect
ing was close beside her , taking the
lantern from her hand. It was Larry ,
and it was Larry's arms that were
around her , holding her dose.
"It's a big thing you've done , my
girl ! " he murmured huskily , "It's a
mighty big thing. "
Out there in the night , with the rain
beating upon them , with the wind riot
ing around them , with a crowd of ex
cited people exclaiming at the averted
danger , Larry and Kitty , without , reproach
preach or explanation , came again to
love and understanding.
"Sure and I'm not caring for Rosie ,
now , " Kitty whispered. Toledo Blade.

"The boy carried out his contract
duly , and at 10 o'clock , tired and
