"Then you're going to make Stella
wait another year before she gets mar
ried 7" asked Stella's mother anxiously.
Samuel Dlllaway stroked his little
gray beard with one sunburned hand
and flourished a pipe wits the other.
"I look at It this way," be said di
dactically. "The time has come for
us to have a cistern on the roof of
the extension, and Joe Mellen seems
to think the time's proper for him and
Stella to get married. Now they can
wait another year or two until 1 can
better afford to bare a wedding. In
the meantime, I've got to have that
cistern. Some fine day we'll be run
ning out of water, then what will you
"Nonsense, Samuel,'' protested Mrs.
Dlllaway earnestly. "We've. used the
well for twenty-flve years and It's nev
er showed no signs of getting dry."
"I can't afford a wedding, Celia,"
said Samuel decisively.
"It won't cost you anything to speak
of. Most of Stella's clothes are made
and we'll have Just a quiet little wed
ding with nobody here"
"That's Just the kind," Interrupted
Mr. Dlllaway Jocosely. "If there's a
wedding before I say so, there won't
be nobody to It, and -no Dlllaway was
married without style. "
"Without fiddlesticks!" snapped Mrs.
Dlllaway. "Something's got to' be
done. I shan't have Stella's life spoil
ed Just so's you can experiment with a
cistern. There's money and to spare
for her to be married right now this
"They won't be married In my
house." exploded Stella's father, danc
ing with excitement, "and I'll forbid
the banns anywbere's else."
"Stella U be married to home here,
and you'U give her away. Just put
that In your pipe and smoke It!" said
Mr. Dilla way's spouse, bustling back
to her kitchen. 1
Stella, a tall, pale girl, with tired
gray eyes and pretty, pathetic face,
looked up wistfully as ber mother en
tered the room.
"What did be say, mother?"
"Same old story, Stella. Don't you
care. I've got an Idea." Mrs. Dllla-

way rolled up the sleeves, of ber crisp
gingham gown and fell to work among
the baking dishes with vigor. "You
' get ready to be married next Wednes
day evening at 6 o'clock, and I'll guar
antee your pa'U give you away fast
"You're the best mother!" cried Stel
la Joyfully. "Now I'U run down and
On Wednesday afternoon of the fol
lowing week, the very day set for
Stella's marriage, Samuel Dlllaway
came flaming up the walk to the kitch
en door very much like one of bis own
"Scoot, Stellar' warned ber mother.
"Your pa's beard about the wedding.
Well, I should have told him In a few
minutes anyway. He's got to have It
broke to him, but not till 1 get ready."
When Mr. Dlllaway reached the
kitchen door and flung It wide open be
rushed straight Into the arms of his
"Samuel, what the lan's up In the
cistern T I've beard the queerest
sounds up there. Seems like some
thing allve's In there. If there Is it
' ought to be got out, for the wind's
around to the east, and we're bound to
nave rain tomorrow."
Mr. Dlllaway. attacked on bis weak
est point, looked up at the great round
cistern- perched freakishly on the
kitchen roof, with long leaden pipes
running from the main roof of the
bouse into the covered top. It had
been completed the day before, and
Samuel was waiting impatiently for
the first rains to fall and enter the cis
tern that he might prove that bis idea
for supplying water - to kitchen and
bathroom would work successfully to
the utter confusion of the village wa
ter company, whose yearly, water
rates were much tower than the cost
of Dlllaways cistern.
Prom within the cistern there came
queer, scratching, metallic noises and
strange shrill cries of distress.
Mr. Dlllaway removed his hat and
coat and then climbed the ladder that
led to the kitchen roof. Mrs. Dill-
vat panted heavily up the back
stulrs and squeezed her am pi form
through a bedroom window and came
out on the roof beside ntr husband.
"What you doing, OellaT" demanded
Mr. Dlllaway testily. "You'll fall and
break your neck, that's what you'U do.
Go m the bouse." Quite confident
that be had been oboyed, Mr. Dlll
away walked across the creaking, rat
tling tin roof to the cistern, whose top
rose three feet above his head. Lead
ing up to the top of the cistern was a
narrow iron ladder. One-half of the
circular lid of tbe cistern was propped
open. From this opening there pro
ceeded the strange sounds heard from
"What Is it?" asked Mrs. Dlllaway
"I don't know. Maybe It's the cat"
"The cat's In the kitchen, Samuel.
Now, be careful," for Mr. Dlllaway
was propelling his small, round person
up the lodder with dangerous rapidity.
rtello!" exclaimed Mr. Dlllaway
fiercely, peering Inside.
"What is It?" pleaded his wife.
"Nothing much." returned Mr. Dllla
way sarcastically. "Only one of my
prize cockerels chasing his tail around
down there. lie's got to get out of
there tonight or he'll run himself to
death. Can you get the stepladder out
to me, Celia? I've got to climb down
"I'll fetch it in a minute, Samuel.
Tbe telephone's ringing. I'll be right
back. You might Just drop down that
three feet and be catching your bird;
I can get tbe ladder over to you."
With that she was gone, and Mr.
Dlllaway waited In vain for her re
turn, each moment growing more pep
pery as to temper. Having requested
his wife to bring the stepladder Mr.
Dlllaway would not demean himself by
fetching it himself, so after a period
of Impatience be threw himself gin
gerly over the edge, clutched tightly
the rim and swung down Inside tbe
cistern. Then be dropped with a clang
ing thud to the dry. sine lined floor of
Around this slippery surface be chas
ed tbe elusive cockerel in narrowing
circles until in some Inexplicable man
ner be found that be was pursuing
himself frantically around the well
while the cockerel leaned exhausted
against tbe side. It was an easy mat
ter to capture the bird and tie his legs
securely with a handkerchief.
'Celia!" called Mr. Dlllaway In a
commanding voice. He looked up at
tbe semicircular opening overhead End
saw tbe deep blue of the sky and noth
ing else. "Celia." be called again.
Where Is that ladder?"
His voice echoed with a hollow me
tallic boom and seemed thrown back
upon him. The cockerel squawked
Steps creaked slowly across tbe tin
roof without and some one laboriously
climbed tbe . iron ladder and peered
rosy faced over the opening. It was
"Where Is the stepladder?" demand
ed Mr. Dlllaway Irascibly.
'In tbe house."
'Why don't you bring It out here?
I've got to get out of this."
"I should think you'd like to stay In
it it's a dreadful nice cistern. You
think a lot more of it than you do of
your own - daughter," returned Mrs.
Dills way quietly.
"Nonsense, Celia! I won't listen to
such talk. You get that ladder down
here at once."
"Not yet." said Celia. "Not till you
give your consent to Stella's marrying
Joe Mellen tonight"
"I'll do no such thing," roared Mr.'
Dlllaway wrathfully. "I see now.
Cells. - You put this cockerel In here
yourself. It's a shameful imposition!"
"You coming to the wedding?" de
"No!" bellowed Mr. Dlllaway. "I'U
stay here till doomsday first"
"very well, Suniuel. I'll drop you
down some wedding cake. The min
ister's coming now. They'll be married
at 6 o'clock, and Stella hoped you'd
give ber away tbe Dillaways was al
ways married in style, you know!" she
flung back over 'ber shoulder as she
bucked down the ladder. ,
If Mr. Dlllaway had not been too
busy working himself into a rage be
might have noted tbe strained anxiety
In ber voice. When ber steps bad
creaked away Into tbe house be peered
at bis watch. It was 6:30 now, and In
a half hour, if Celia kept her word,
Stella would be Joe Mellen's wife. He
had been nicely duped.
When several hours bad passed Mr.
Dlllaway again consulted his watch
and found it to be 5:45. Time certain
ly dragged in a zinc lined cistern with
no companion save a draggled cocke
rel. There were distant sounds of arriv
ing guests. Once he heard his name
mentioned. They were asking for him,
expecting him to give Stella away.
Let the ungrateful hussy give herself
Another hour dragged, and It was
five minutes before 6. Steps creaked
across the roof and climbed the lad
der. This time it was Stella's fair
bead outlined against the pale evening
"Pa, won't you come out and give
me away? I don't want to be married
without you're there," faltered the
brjrie tearfully. A hot drop splashed
on Samuel's upturned face, and It
seemed to melt some bard little knot
In bis heart.
"I'm coming up, Stolla, Just as soon
as your ma fetches the stepladder. X

hours. I got my clothes to change,
you know. Tell your ma to hurry up."
"Oh. yea. pa; I'm so glad," cried
Stella, disappearing from Mr. DUls
