Here she attracta Freddie the Ferret,

and is aaved from being; burned to death
by Tommy. About this time Stilllter,
Barclay and others who are working; to

Celestia, who has been trained to think
of herself as divine and come from
heaven. The first place they send her Is
to Bitumen, a mining town, where tha
coal miners are on a strike. Tommy has
gone there, too, and Mr Ounedorf, wife
the miners' leads-; falls in love with him
and denounces him to the men when he
spurns her. Celestla saves Tommy from
being lym-bed, and alao settles the strike
by winning over Kchr, the agent of tha
bosses, and Barclay, sr. Mary Black

to find Celestla there. .
FOURTEENTH EriSQDE. .. .
After half an hour's work, never losing
touch wjtb the hut. Prof. Stllllter had
colected" sufficient inflamable material
to soft boll an egg. This would never do,
and he was wasting time.
Ha was tormented by that feeling which
perhaps gave rise to trie adage the "mora
haste, ,thr less speed." Time was vitally
important' " isd to- do. .things aquickly
and ha potrtdn't. He wtooi against- each
of the four walls of the hut' In succession
and shouted, for Jielp a few times at the
top of his lungs. But, as he expectod.
nothing came of them.
"Well," ha thought, "I'll hav to burn
my shelter.- It will make Just tha big
amok I need. And I shan't be much
worse off. It won't look like a' camu
f jra, but like the beginning of a forest
fire. It ought to bring a watchman.
The logs of which tha hut was built
were thoroughly seasoned and full of
pitch. By aid of , the heap of old dried
out balsam which had served him for a
pillow during the night Prof. Stllllter
succeeded in setting it on fire. Ills ears
told him that the fire was going to be a
success, and presently, too, the-heat that
began to emenate from it.
i He crawled to a little distance and sat
down with hi back to the fir. , It
wasn't likely that anyone would coma in
less than an hour; it might be many
hours before anyone came. But he was
ery sure that his fire would bring some-
i Bitting and watting, now making at
tempts to calculate tha passage of time,
and falling signally, now thinking tin-
happy thoughts, and now vengeful pas
sionate thoughts, h sat on and on for
eternities of time.
Ha contrasted what might hava been
with what was. By now Celestla should
hava been his, linked to him by In
dissoluble bonds. Perhaps now, ha thought,
she would lova ma. Ha would have kept
her in the cave for a while, and then ha
would hava sneaked. her, feasting his
eyes on har beauty, to soma far coun
try, where her face and voice were not
so well known. There he would marry
her legitimately, and by htm she could
have many wonderful and beautiful sons
That was what might have been. . In
stead, -behold him, sitting in pitch dark
ness, his shelter burning behind him, as a
call for that help which might never
come. How long, oh. Lord, how long.
Suddenly through his right hand, which
rested on tha ground, .there shot a sharp
stab of pain. He Jerked his hand up
ward with an oath. It flashed through
lils mind that he had been stung by a
ground hornet As a matter .of fact, a
little creeping tongue of flame had burnt
him. ... .
Prof, milliter's fire was spreading.
Crevices in the rock In which were lichens
and dried mosses, 'carried little torches
hither and thither, torches that were
only too eager to find and set fir to
something worth while.
The main fir mad such a crackling
and roaring now that Prof. Stllllter had
not heard tha lesser sounds which It
made In spreading. It waa some mo
ment before he realised that he had
rot been stung but burned. It was a
smell of burning cloth that made this
clear to him. The professor's coat had
caught fire.. H moved further away un
til there seemed to be nothing about
Mm but unburnable rock. H found the
place in his coat which was burning and
managed to spit upon It till It waa out.
He sat down . once more. He was in
the midst of on of those great open
splashes of grsnlte on the mountain side.
As a matter of fact, he was near the
Mge 'of one of these masses. Within
reach of his ' hand was a dense tangle
of tinder dry acrub trees, shrub and
Suddenly this shrubbery caught and
went off almost like an explosion. Prof.
Stllllter staggered backward from the
Intense heat, and realised presently that
he was backing Into another area --of
heat equally intense. '
On Ms hands and knees he made off
In a direction that took him winding bt
tween the two; he went quite a long way.
In his breast was : the first touch of
panic.".' ' i ; -
Now for th second. Directly In hi
path there arose a steady, a vibrant, a
horrid and incessant claahlngrof all tha
sounds In this world the coldest blooded
and the most menacing and sinister.
The fir urged him forward. Th rat
tlesnake colled in hi path, dared him to
He rose to his feet shivering and In
an agony of fear and dread. Suddenly
ne cneo aioua:
"My God! My God! What have I
done to deserve this?"
Only the fire answered him and th
rattlesnake. Presently It became neces
sary ror him to go forward or to burn
to death where he stood.
He went forward with slow high steps
-a iigure at onca tragic and grotesque.
But th anak. too. had grown uncom
fortable Jn th increasing, heat, and ha.
too. made off after ona final balancing

True Love in a Cottage
It Can Be Attained, but it Means

"Love in a cottage" Is not a poet'a

Bub ajid there is a large but everything

tage ar both real. Lova can make a
ros-twlned cot tag out of a room in a
slum tenement, and cruel Indifference I

hedge of thorns.
If th foundation of lov ar firm, and
so, too, ar thoa of th little house
