memory suddenly opened wide.
It was a brief, simple tale, the re
cital of how a young man himself had
rescued a poor, sick woman from
drowning in a steanler stampede at
the risk of his own life.
He had forgotten the incident. Now
its details recalled to him where he
had known the name Lester. The girl
told of how her mother had bade her
