Ned Cramer shored the little cnuoe
Into the water nnd waited n moment,
the tying rope in bin hnud. While ho
waited ho looked nt Anne I'rcscott, who

wharf rending n letter. Auuc'b dress
wnH of cerulean blue linen, and tho net
tlug sun made her hair red gold. Final
ly Ned spoke, nlbelt the picture wna
rarely pretty nnd appealed to him.
"Heady, Anne?" bo called.
"All right!" said Anne, but she didn't
move, nnd Ned waited some more pa
tiently, for he knew he was soon to
hare his innings ami was In no hurry
to take tho but. Hut when he spoko tho
second time he said llmily:
Anno tore the letter in two, threw it
into the water and came to the little
bark, where she settled herself Indian
fashion on her knees in the business
end of the canoe. Sho held it steadily
while he stepped In nnd bestowed his
long length of limb opposite; then sho
let the boat drift while she rolled up
her cerulean blue sleeves. It was one
of Anne's peculiarities that sho always
did the paddling herself. It was not
merely that the attitude and motion
were becoming to her, though sho was
aware of her good points, like most well
balanced girls. It was simply that sho
preferred having the men at a disad
vantage nt her mercy, ns It were. They
always looked awkward with nothing
to do, nnd it seemed hard for them to
keen up the conversation.
Neil Cromer was u little different.
He always inudo himself supremely
comfortable, nnd, while ho didn't look
at her as much an most of tho fellows
did, his glanco ulways put her on her
Tho quick strokes of her paddle sent
them rapidly dowustroam. When they
reached the first bend they passed tho
letter, which was skimming along tho
"We'll go down to the island nnd sec
how long It will take for the letter to
get there," said Anne, and Ned assent
ed lazily. He lit n cigarette and smok
ed nwhilo in silence. When bo spoke
his words were, us usual, to the point.
"When arc you going to marry mo.
Anne, elaborately surprised, held her
paddle in midair In a chnrmlng poo
for a moment; then It dropped Into
tlio wnter with a splash.
"I havo no present intention of mar
rying you nt all," tdie said.
"Then it's n good tlmo to form nn
intention. I'll help you." He smiled
persuasively. "Make It October. Foil
weddings nro so pretty, nnd that will
give you two months to burn nil your
old love letters nnd make your good
The blood rose under Uic tan on her
cheeks, but her only answer was a
vigorous and renewed paddling. Ned
threw away the stub of his cigarette
and felt In his hip pocket for his to
bacco pouch. If he was nervous he
did not show It
"Shall we say October, then?" ho
queried, adding with a noto of tender
ness In his voice: "Ton have made mo
very happy, Anne. You will not re
gret" "Well, of all the cool Impudence I
ever heard!" gasped Anne. "I wouldn't
marry you If If She stopped, ex
asperated. "If you didn't lore me," he finished
"I bate you!" sho boiled. "This Is
six times you have made that lnsano
assertion this summer. Love yon I I
uct as If I loved. vu, do I?" She stop
ped paddling and looked at him. Her
eyes blazud, and ho thought sho hadn't
looked so pretty since tho Inst tlmo
she had refused him.
"No," ho said; "you net ns If you
didn't, but I know you do." Ho looked
serious. "Why, It stands to reason,
Anne, thnt you loro me or you wouldn't
get bo mad when I tell you about It"
"Ned Cramer," she blazed out, "If
you ovor try to mako lovo to mo again
I'll I'll make you sorry 1 Now, you
either talk about something clso or
Sho had evidently forgotten about
her Intention of reaching the Island, for
she put down her paddle and let tho
canoe drift Idly along shore. It was
growing dark, nnd n crescent moon was
faintly shining In tho east. Anne, look
ing nttentlvoly upstream, saw a white
hpoek In tho wnter nnd, taking her pad
dle, fished it out nnd deposited It, drip
ping, on hts knee.
"It's tho letter," ho nnnounccd, touch
ing ft Anno started.
"Give it to me," she demnndod, hold
ing out her band.
"After I've read it," ho said calmly.
"Ned Crumer, that's my letter, nnd
you havo no right to road It"
"On the contrary, It's mine since,
firstly, you threw It array, nnd, second
ly, picked it up again and gave It to in
to have nnd to hold.' "
Anne quaked, bnt sho tried bravado.
"Well, It's too dark to road It uny
bow; besides, It's all soaked and blear
ed," slie Bald.
"My excellent eyes are not the least
of my many good points," snld Nod,
spreading It oat carefully. Anne looked
about for means of escape. Sho saw
Ned lean out and snatch something out
of tho water.
"It's the other hnlf," he beamed.
"Now, I'll read It to you." He patched
the halves together, held them to his
eyes a moment, laid them down again
on hut knee nnd glanced over nt Anne.
Bho looked relieved,
"I told you It was too dark," she said
"I hare some mntches," ho answered,
pulling out a little silver case.
"Anne," he went on, "you know you
"I know Hint I hate you," she an
swered. "Anne," he said, mulling nt her, "I'm
going to give you Just one minute to
tell tuu you love me. nnd. If you don't
say It, Uien I'm going to provo It to
Anne's henrt panted to sny "Yes," but
her stubborn will would not yield. She
said weakly, "Ned, I"
"Time!" called out Ned, nnd then ho
lit a match and leaned over the letter.
Anne bent forward, her lips parted, her
fingers twitching. The canoe rocked
"'Of course I lore Ned,"' read the
mnn slowly. "Tho letter," he Interrupt
ed himself, "seems to be from cr
some ono to Clarn Carlton. 'Of course I
lore Ned, but he Is too sure of it, nnd I
Ho never finished the sentence, for In
her attempt to snatch the letter Anna
upset the canoe and landed Ned, her
self nnd the letter In the muddy rlrer.
When she regained her balance nnd
thought of Ned she discovered him
turning the canoe right side up nnd
paying no attention at all to her. Her
first thought wiis thnt It wns fortunate
he bad caught hold of the boat. Then
she gasped in nmazemcut, for ho hnd
let It go, and It was lloatlug down
"Ned Cramer, arc you crazy?" she
screamed. "Cntch Itl"
"I'll take you to the island first," he
answered and waded through the shal
low water to tho bald, sandy spot they
called nn Island. It happened that
when he set her down her feet touched
something hard, but which moved
"Ned," she screamed, "it's a turtle!"
Nod had stnrted nway, and he called
over hts shoulder:
"They won't bite If you don't scare
them or tbu snakes cither."
Snakes! Sho held her dripping
skirts tightly uround her nnd stood, n
pnthetlc but nevertheless a funny fig
ure, fear written In every lino of her
body. Sho was too frightened to move
when sho saw the great turtle she had
stepped on come straight toward her,
craning its bnld, snaky head from side
to Bide. The tears rolled unheeded bftmi
her face and mingled with the water
thut dripped from her stringy, wet hair.
She sobbed helplessly and with horri
fied eyes wns still watching the turtle,
which had stopped In his trucks nnd
was leering nt her, when she heard
Ned's voice. Never had anything
sounded so good to her ears.
"Do you lovo me, Anno?"
How ono will suffer for prido's sake!
She turned her fnco toward him, un
mindful of tears:
"I hate you!" she sobbed.
"All right," he cnllcd cheerfully; "I'll
Just paddle around n little, and when
you're ready you call, nnd I'll come. As
I said bofore, the snnkes won't bo 'apt
to btto unless you should happen to
step on them or something."
He turned the canoo and took a doz
en strokes, feeling like u beastly cad
every tlmo tho paddle touched the wa
ter. Then a voice, wild nnd desperate
with fenr, shrieked:
"Ned, come buck I"
"Coming." ho called. "Walt, Anno."
Ilut Anne, terrified beyond endur
ance by tho ndranclng turtle, ran Into
tho water, and he pulled her, a drip
plug, sobbing, disheveled figure, Into
the shelter of the canoe and his arms.
"You'll never regret It, Anne," he
"But you will," sho sobbed. "I'll

Stealing a Bride
In colonial times there wns n curious
custom culled bride stealing. Persons
who had not been Invited to the wed
ding would watch for n chance after
tlie ceremony had been performed to
kidnap the bride. Placing her on n
horse behind one of their party, they
would gallop to a neighboring tnveru
where Uiey had ordered supper. If
they reached the tavern before the
bride had been rescued the night wns
spent there In feasting and dancing,
nnd the bridegroom wns expected to
foot the Nils.
Mary nnd Helen Harrington, daugh
ters of an old colonial Justice of tho
peace, were very nttractlvo girls. Mary
was engaged to an olllcer in the Hrltlsh
nrmy, and her parents, being Tories,
were well satisfied with the mutch, but
Helen's fiance, being outspoken In con
demnation of the taxes the king lev
led on tho colonies, was not neceptnblo
to her fathei who declared that she
should never marry a man tinctured
with n spirit of rebellion.
On the other hand, preparations for
the marriage of Captain Illnchelwood
nnd Mary Harrington were being mndo
with great satisfaction to all, though
Truxell and Helen could not but be
cast down nt the contrast between
their own condition and that of tho
happy pair. In vnln Truxell endenror
ed to gain an Interview with Helen,
hoping to persuade her to elope with
him. Hut she was so closely watched
that communication wns Impossible.
Preparations for Mary's wedding
having been mndo and tlio wedding
day arrived, guests from nil the coun
try roundabout were assembled at Har
rington Hall to tako part In tlio fes
tivities. Captain Illnchelwood woro
his scarlet uniform, Mary u white satin
gown beautifully trimmed with laco.
Her sister was her only bridesmaid.
There was a plentiful sprinkling of
redcoats from tho groom's regiment,
stationed ut lioston, who held their
heads very high nmoiig the plainer
young men who were soon to meet
them nt Concord, Lexington nnd Hun
ker Hill. The ceremony had taken
place, tho bride and groom were re
ceiving congratulations, and tho negro
cooks In the kitchen woro bringing In
the supper. Suddenly every candle was
extinguished, nnd thero was a commo
tion, amid which voices cried:
"The bride has been stolen I"
"They're galloping nwnyl"
There wns a clattering of horses'
hoofs, growing fainter In tho distance.
Under the sheds horses nnd vehicles
which had brought tho guests were
standing, nnd a number of tho men,
bended by the bride's father and her
husband, mounted and dashed away
after the kidnapers. A full moon Illu
minated the landscape, and nt uvcry
straight stretch of road the pursuing
party could boo thoso who woro ficelug
before them lashing their horses. At
one point tlio pursuers catno to
branches of trees piled In the road to
prevent their progress. Thnt tho kid
nnpers were not delayed was because,
having prepared tho obstructions thorn
selves, when they came to them they
took n bypath around them. Dismount
ing, tho pursuers soon cleared tlio road
and wore off again. Then they np
proached n covered hrldgo which hnd
been packed with straw and which as
soon as tho kidnapers had passed
through It they had set nflre. Iudeed,
tho pursuers saw tho sparks struck
from tlio Hint for tho purpose. By tlio
tlmo they reached tho bridge it was
aflame, and they must go to a ford n
good mllo around. This doclded tho
race. When tlio pursuers reached n
tavern whero tlio lady had been taken
nnd Mr. Harrington went up on to tho
porch his daughter came out to meet
him. Hut instead of throwing herself
Into his arms he knelt nt his feet
