"A hundred dollars! And lier dog
and her cntl I call that n shame n
burning slinmol" Amy Watts snld, hold
ing out her hand to Jocelyu, ostensibly
sympathetic, but with a gleam of sat
isfaction In her eye.
"I don't," Jocclyn said stoutly.
"Aunty Ucrlntlin never promised to
innkc mo her heir. Shq did nl) she
said and niorc gave mo my education
with a lot of frills in tho way of ex
tras drcsscil mc well and gave mo
also n chance of earning her money,
I wouldn't take it"
"Why, I-I don't understand,;' Amy
began. Jocclyn laughed softly. "The
earning would have been easy to some,
girls," she. said. "It only meant being
a missionary. You see, aunty felt tbnt
she herself ought to havo gone aho
thought she had heard a call that way
but her terror of men and water was
such eho never could venture to an
swer It. She wanted me to fill tho gap
which she thought she had left In tho
ranks. Then, too, tho poor old dear
knew I'd spend her money If I got It
without the missionary irecr In hav
ing good times. And sho did so linto
good times! She simply couldn't be
happy unless she was very miserable."
' "You stayed with her nine years,"
Amy said lu a voice of nwc. Jocclyn
smoothed out her black gown and said
cheerfully: "Yes, and I'm glad of it.
Toward the last sho clung to me piti
fullycalled mo her comfort, and nil
that But It broke mc all up to have
her ask , my pardon for the will, as
though I had a right to be hurt over It.
'I've lived so useless, child, I had to do
a little good at the very last,' slip said.
So her dear missionaries got everything
but the place, nnd the, family sliver
they went to n Chnlloncr down In Tex
as, tho last of tho name. Sho hoped ho
would come back to Hvo on the place.
Somehow, in spite of all her cranki
ness, she kept the feeling of race. I'm
not Teal blood kin of hers, you know
only her stepmother's grandchild."
"When Is he coming this Texan?"
Jocclyn laughed roguishly. "Not at
nil, I suspect, Amy-Mamy. You'll havo
to put up with Frank Palmer after
nil, for even If Mr. Stephen Chnlloner
should come he Is likely to bring a
Mrs. Chnlloner along. Eurly and often
Is the Texas motto when It comes to
matrimony, nnd he's all of thirty-five."
"Frank has no eyes now for any
body but you," Amy said, trying to
mask splto with playfulness nnd. suc
ceeding rather 111.
Jocelyu gave her n keen look. In
wardly she whistled, a favorite trick
of hers In case of great surprise. "Un
less you tako that back right straight
I'll bundle you out, neck and crop,"
sho said severely, but with twinkling
eyes. "I don't deny grudging Frank to
you. "Whnt woman could? But you
bavo possession, which Is nine points
of the Inw, not to speak of vested in
terests. You two were betrothed In
tho cradle, I've always heard, by your
"Oh, that was all a Jokol" Amy said,
but blushed and bridled delightedly.
Amy was a pretty enough girl unless
Jocclyn were by to put her out of
court. Jocelyn was tall and twenty,
light on her fee, llthely rounded, a flg
uro of grace, vital everywhere, most
of all In her peach tinted faco(nndj
laughing eyes. In the thrco . weeks
since sho had come homo she had bud
Jugatcd half of Lyunvllle women no
less than men. What wonder that sho
had swept Frank rainier' off his feet!
. nq-was a rich roan's only child, spoil
ed of course, but a decent fellow
enough, dutiful' to his father and ten
derly affectionate toward his invalid
mother. Ho had Intended to marry
Amy on purposo to please, his mother,
who was. fond of tho girl and had
grown to depend on hor greatly Now
ho had decided sho would bo, much
fonder of, Jocclyn , before six months
were out. How could sho help it?
While tho two girls talked of him ho
Was saying this to the sick woman,
who answered him with only silent
choking sobs nnd wringing of wasted j
hands. Tho silence irritated him to
tho point of action. IIo went out of
. tho house far from, gently, nnd swung
along tho tree bordered street, eyes
down, so Intent upon his errnnd ho ran
fairly into n tall, sunburned fellow who
stood Irresolute upon a corner.
"No harm done;, rather good," tho
stranger said In answer to his upolo
gles. "At least I reckon so. It gives
mo n chnnco to speak to you without
seeming like a confidence mnn. I ought
to bcishnmed to say It, but the fact Is
I'm lost lost in Lynnvllle, where I
was born a long tlmo ago. Tho Lynn
vlllo I remember was anotberksort of
place used to bo a public "square,,
whero tho turnpike wont down toward
the river, with a market house and
"They've gone out to meet tho rail
road," Frank explained, smiling lu
splto of himself.
The stranger said, "H'ml" then
nlunged into the middle of things with:
"Say, whnt sort of proposition Is this
Crnlg girl Miss Jocelyn? You're bound
to know her If you live here."
"She's most adorable," Frank an
Tho strunuer looked at blm, also
smiling, but shrewdly. "It's plain she's
run her brand on you, young mau," ho
said. "Ho you up aud tell me who you
are? And how you're fixed? No hnnn
meant 1'vo got n good reason for nsk
lug. My name's Challoner. I'vo como
nil tho way up hero to sort of even
things. When I got the straight story
Dfernally sho had treated tho Craig
clrl I said to myself, 'Steve, It's up to
rou to make tracks up there and marry
that poor thing "
"Sure you can do It?" Frank asked,
a stormy red flashing Into his face.
Chnlloner wheeled upon Mm. "Lord,
yes," he said. "Even in Texas there
aren't many would turn down Stevo
Challoncr. Ever hear of thoTomnhawk
Ten ranch? Pretty complete dutflt, If I
do suy it myself. It don't really lack
much but a mistress, nnd that It's go
ing to have, sure as this Miss Jocelyu
shows up as uny sort of Texas timber.
She ought to bo that. This Uttlo old
state of Tennessee raises about tho best
going. That's what made me wait soi
long. 1'vo been knowing I needed a
wife ever since the Tomahawk Ten got
to a all draft of 2.00Q steers, but some
how I couldu't fetch It to como up hero
after her. Now well, I don't think I'm
going homo by myself, not, oven if I
find tho wind blows the way I think It
"How is thnt?" Frank asked.
Chulloncr laughed, "Why, that you've
gono nnd cut me out before over I was
rightly cut In," ho said. "Ain't that
"I don't know," Frank interrupted,
"but," doggedly, "If you'll como along
with me we'll very soon find out."
"So you're going to see her!" Chal
loner ejaculated, with a whistle. Then,
rubbing his hands, "But you haven't
told mo a word about yourself."
Frank ran Into a brief account of
himself as they swung along the street,
Challoncr listened attentively nnd at:
the close asked: "Now, one thing more,
are you right suro you nln't mortgaged
property? I don't seo how you can
help being, living hero whero folks
can't do much but mnrry, sjidclally wo
men. Oh, ho, I thought sol" noting
Frank's frowning flush. '"Now you
speak up tho wholo truth beforo wo
go a step farther together."
"Would you ruin your life to plcnso
other people?" Frank demanded.
Chnlloner looked at, him narrowly.
'No jiutn ruins his life except by doing
wrong," ho' said. "Tell me the wholo
tnle, then I can Judge."
"Gov, but you are In a sort of a boxl"
ho said when ho had heard tho talc.
Then, with a swift smile, "But It
oughtn't to bo hard to get you out,
with two .men wanting to marry and
two women ready to bo persunded."
"You don't mean?" Frank began,
reaching for the other hand. Chnlloner
returned tho clasp, but said oracularly,
"Walt until I'vo seen 'em both; no buy
ing pigs In a poke for yours truly."
Then thero was silence until they stood
side by side upon tho Craig piazza
shaking hands with tho two young wo
men, whose conclnve they had inter
rupted. Five minutes later Challoncr
managed to wink nt Frank, unseen.
And when after supper they marched
away arm In arm ho burst out: "It's all
right mighty right old sonl I'm with
you to tho last cartridge. Jocelyn has
got tho looks, but somehow tbnt Amy
bunch of calico Is Just tho size I want.
We've got a whole mouth's tlmo to
work In. Ought to be a. pair of wed
dings ut the end of It."
Thero were a pair of weddings, al
though they waited until fall. When
they camo off Amy was so happy that
she made a beautiful Mrs. Challoncr,
nnd Mrs. Palmer, Sr was nearly as
much In lovo. with Jocelyn as her bride
The Tick of a Clock.
In a recent police court squapble over
a clock one man testified that, ho could
Identify the timepiece in question by
the tick. This statement was4 received
with derision by most of tho courtroom
attaches, the magistrate included, but
later a watchmaker to whoso attention
It had been called declared that the
scoffers laughed before they know
what thoy wero laughing nt
"Of course you can tell a clock by
its tick," he said. "I don't mean that
every clock has an Individual .tick, that
can be recognized by Us friends, but
many of them have, and a parson who
has owned a certain clock for a long
whllo and has studied Its stylo and
mannerisms can, If he has a good ear,
detect that particular tick among a
hundred. Many clocks that are. appar
ently rnndo on the samo plan develop
peculiarities In their running gear.
Somo canter along at an even pace.
others go by, Jerks, and spurts. Somo
are stately and solemn, others frisky
and gay, Tho ticking of clocks varies,
too, in rhythm, pitch nnd dynamics.
With all these differences In tone is it
any wonder that a man who has meas
ured his life by ono clock for several
years cau swear even in court to Its
particular tick?" New, Xork Post
Everything Is relative, after all, even
age, yet one might suspect that tho
"children" of ono of Mr. Muzzoy's
"Men of the Revolution" might huve
arrived at years of some discretion and
proper regard for behavior.
Wheu I saw tho old soldier, says Mr.
Muzzey, he was the sole survivor of
those who witnessed the battle of Bun
ker Hill. At tho age of ninety-five
years he was attending a Whig cUle
brutlon held at Boston In 1850, JW
thero I met him. IIo was a goodjHtk

bead, blue eyes and mild expression.

The old mau's smooth brow wrinkled
t Into a semblance of a frown as he said:
"I didn't want to be plagued with
those boys on au occasion of this sort"
"Why, how old uru they?" I asked,
wondering If bo could mean his grand
children, "Oh, ono is suventy, and the other is
seventy-two. But I couldn't be both
