David Ellison .found himself stand
ing alone on the slippery pier, watch
ing his companion's retreating figure.
There wasn't anything heroic in the
situation, so far as he '.ould see, and
Brand Tatlocks partirg words and
incredulous laugh had left him feel
ing vaguely discontented and uncom
fortable. Why should a fellow be
everlastingly tied up to his work, es
pecially when there wasn't an;, work
in sight, as Brand had said, nor even
.a prospect of there being any? A
sudden veering of the wind drove a
dash of wet snow in David's face,
ard he brushed it away with an im
patient gesture, pulling his cap lower
over his forehead. Of course, there
wasn't a light schooner on the lako
tc-night, and wouldn't be for months,
David Ellison had been in charge
cf the dingy little tug, Josephine,
ever since his father's death, some
eighteen months before. The legal
formalities were easily complied
with, for David knew the port and
the boat as a bright pupil in the day
school knows his spelling book, and
old Peter McHarg stayed by the en
gine. David was looking longingly
through plate glass windows at young
' men perched on high stools, or bent
over desks in counting rooms, or
darting about alertly behind screens
of steel network in banks and offices.
That was a kind of life David
dreamed of, while the puning, busy
little tug towed numberless small
craft inside the stone piers at Luray.
Luray wasn't much of with the larger
lake ports, but a good deal of lumber
was shipped in there from the numer
ous "landings" which formed a semi
circle around the lower end of the
lake. Luray was pretty near the cen
tre of the curve; and had a railway
terminus. Most of the lumber came
down in small schoonners, and this
rnade business for tugs like the Jo
sephine. One couldn't trust the wind
inside the stone piers.
There wasn't a better pilot on the
lake than John Ellison in his lifetime,
but the Josephine had a paying pat
ronage when David took up the work.
That was why he did ir.. It would
never do to take chances on a new
venture when there was. a widowed
. mother to be looked after, and Dan
nie half through his high school
course, and Mary needed at home,
while mother was in such poor health.
David dreamed, but his dreams didn't
interfere with his faithful manage
ment of the Josephine, Eind the men
who had known John, Ellison said
David was a "chip of the old block."
David tock that as a compliment, and
held his patronage by doing his test.
The season was practically over
now. Winter was in the air and in
the sullen, heaving swells of the lake.
Most of the cargoes were in, and pru
dent skippers realized that there
might be a sudden change of weather
almost any time, after the schooners'
keels went tripping their way through
the first scum of thin ice. "Jud"
Farquar was not prudent It was the
last thing of which his best friend
or his bitterest enemy would think
of accusing him. He had a sturdy,
rugged will of his own, which hurled
defiance in the face of winter winds,
if they happened to come too eagerly
to suit his rather leisurely move
ments. After the last boat had un
loaded, and put about, a 'ter the last
car had rattled away to the main
line, freighted with odorous remind
ers of the Michigan forests, the An
dalusia, snub-nosed and stanch, with
her rigging ice-coated, like the rig
ging of an Arctic whaler, might be
expected to appear at any moment.
Once, may years before - skippers
still laughed at the memory between
whiffs of their black pipes-tne An
dalusia had "frozen in," despite
x"Jud" Farquar's boasts, and he had
stumped the whole fifty miles back
to Iiis lumber camps and mills, on
foot, sturdily refusing the aid of
steam cars and wagons.
It was Farquar, or rather the
chance of his late cominr, which had
kept the Josephine at the pier these
last two days, her fires banked, and
McHarg within easy hailing distance.
The fine weather had "broke for
good," wiseacres' declared, squinting
;up at the leaden sky, ;:nd burying
their chins in coat collars or mufliers

flakes. Still it would be like Farquar
to put out wita the Andalusia in
such bitter weather. '
David went down into the tiny cab
in and lighted a lamp, as soon as he
had Watched Brand Tatlock out of
sight. He told "himself that he would
brush his hair, out on his best suit,
and follow his vhilom companion to
Mechanics' Hall, where the entertain
ment was to bo held. He made no
movement to csrry out this threat,
however, for, though David was de
cidedly "out of sorts," he had not,
at heart, receded from the position
taken, when he refused Brand's in
vitation. The entertainment would
be a pleasant br^ak in the monotony,
and he felt a little sore at being "tied
up," but there wasn't a doubt that
the Josephine was the place for him,
until he heard definitely from Far
quar. That might be early th? next
morning. It certainly couldn't be
later than the next afternoon, when
Farquar was holding his promise to
watch out for the Andalusia. Far
quar must know that "watching out"
was anything bvt agreeable business
in thi? kind of weather. Most fellows
wouldn't wait a minute beyond a
reasonable time, David assured him
self, letting his discontent make him
momentarily boastful. Hadn't Brand
Tatlock laughed at the idea? And
Brand had been on board a Kanawah
schooner almost from the day he
could handle a rope, a manly, clean,
trustworthy felic w he was, too.
David perched cn the edge of his
bunk, and picket! up ? .hree-days-old
newspaper, running his eye idly down
the columns of the wrinkled sheet.
His secret grumbling was a mere cs
! cape valve for his feelings, evidently,
for h? showed no signs of leaving his
post. It was a folly in which David
seldom indulged, but it's what one
does, not what one's talks about do
ing, which really counts. He listened
nov/ to McHarg's heavy boots clump
ing down the sir steps of the com
"Wa-aitin" up for Farquar, eh,

cosely. His voice was heavy, like
his shoes, and h?- flattened his vowels
after the fashion of a Cornishman.

"I'll keep watch till midnight-or
later," David replied, without looking
up. McHarg's jesting tone nettled
him. Why must everybody treat his
waiting for Farquar in the light of a
joke? There wasn't any joke about
it, that was sure. "Look after the
fires, and turn in, when ever you get
David divided lils time between the
snug cabin and the comfortless pier.
The former was much more to his lik
ing, but he found himself growing
drowsy now and ;hen in the close at
mosphere, and, besides, it was nec
essary to keep an occasional eye out
for signals from the offing. For lack
of something better to do, he amused
himself by smiling at the improbabil
ity of seeing any. The wind was
blowing a gale now, and the air was
thickening with damp snow.
It waa late, and David must have
fallen into a drowse. He came up
with a bound, flashing an alarmed
glance at the little nickel clock over
his bunk's head. It was long past
midnight, and ha rushed on deck,
without putting cn hi3 heavy jacket.
He had the shamed sense of having
slept at his post, and it seemed to
him at the instant that Farquar
must be just outside the piers, sig
naling frantically for the Josephine.
Strangely enough the fancy and the
reality blended almost as soon as his
feet struck the wet planks. A flare
shot up out of thc snow-misted dark
ness, and David only paused to note
the direction of rhe wind before he
dashed down the companionway,
shouting to Jacobs and McHarg.
"The wind'll te dead against 'er
in an hour," he warned, counseling
haste. "Start thc engine the minute
it'll move 'er. If the Andalusia's
driven out a night like this, she's
done for. We'll "aave the wind with
us till we come up with 'er."
"It's reesky, la'ad," McH'arg
growled under his beard. "A fool

The Josephine was under motion |
at last, wheeling sullenly from her
moorings. It seemed hours to David,
though, fortunately, the fires were
well alive, and the start was only a
matter of minutes. The tug forged
ahead briskly, as she fell in with the
wind, her lights cutting a narrow
furrow through the black night. An
other flare flamed up, and another,
as though the Andalusia was grow
ing impatient of her plight, as indeed
she was. She seemed to have shifted
her position; possibly David surmised
drifting before the wind toward the
open lake. Ke had a boyish impulse
to plunge through the glass front of
the pilot house, and drag the Joseph
ine faster, faster than the grunting
engine was carrying her along. He
must not be too late-he, the fellow
who had waited for Farquar these
two days, and slept at his post like
a land lubber at the last critical mo
David was not too late, but It was
a close shave. Once, the Josephine,
caught up a huddle of roilers at the
stern, threatened to transfix the An
dalusia amidships. Once, the Anda
lusia darted away like a wild thing,
straight for the open water, but the
gust lulled to let the tug come up,
and heave her cable; then, the stout
cable parted, between a mighty puff
of wind offshore and the strain of
starting the tow, and David held
what little breath he had left until
a second cable was made fast.
It was a hard pull after that, the
engine below grunting and snorting
and hissing, like a black giant In
pain; the Josephine splitting the big
rollers into thin spray on her weath
er bow; and the new cable straining
and creaking, as though its first ser
vice might be its last; but it was over
in due time, as the hardest things
are sure to be, and the few skippers
in port pointed wondering fingers at
the Andalusia next morning, as 6he
lay at her moorings, a veritable ice
ship, coated from stem to stern with
the frozen spray, like an old veteran
bearing the scars of battle.
"So you waited for Farquar, eh?"
that eccentric individual inquired
later the same day, when David came
on board the Andalusia, by appoint
ment, to collect his fee for the "tow."
"Wal, young man, if you hadn't, I
reckon nobody 'ud 'a' had the trou
ble o' waitin' for Farquar any more.
I ain't what you might call reel
timid"-the stubby chin wrinkled
grotesquely at the suggestion-"but
I don't mind ownin' 'at my back hair
begun to curl-some little."
"Bad night," David admitted laco
nically. It appeared a small thing,
now it was all over. "Yes, I did hold
br.ck a day or two, though I didn't
much expect you'd put out after the
i weather broke. No" - refusing a
proffered roll of bills-"just the usu
al charge. We have to take the bit
ter with the sweet."
"Jud" Farquar was eyeing the
young face before him thoughtfully,
as his money disappeared from sight
in the depths of David's wallet. He
was rather an undersized man, with
sharp, restless, beady eyes, and a lip
and chin which indexed his obstinate
"We're short a man down below,"
he began tentatively, Jerking a stub
by thumb in the general direction of
his last night's adventure. "One o'
them big concerns swallered 'im up
a month agci, slick an' clean, like as
Jonah did the whale." The remark
able comparison, apparently, gave
him courage to make the plunge, for
he went on briskly: "Bookkeeper we
called Simmons, though, 'twa'n't all
books. He checked sales, fr in
stance, and put my letters into shape
for sendin'. Don't s'pose you'd care
to pen up under a roof with such a
job's that, providin' a man would
make it wuth your while?"
"Indeed I should like nothing bet
ter," David responded promptly.
Wasn't it almost exactly what he had
dreamed of ever since his school
clays? "I could give it a trial, any
how, while there isn't much doing
on the lake. I can't thank-you enough,
"Oh, that's nothin'." David's out
spoken gratitude appeared to embar
rass Mr. Farquar. He chuckled soft
ly to himself a moment, then added:
"It jus' struck me 'at I'd like to try

Tnrkish Baylis at Home.
The problem of a Turkish bath at
home has been solved by a clever girl
who wished to Jake them r?gularly
and could not afford to go to a regu
lar establishment. Her equipment
for the bath consists of .three large
lamps and the family bathtub. The
fact that the bathroom is a small one
aids her in getting the effect of heat
desired,' but a compartment of ordi
nary dimensions may be similarly
adapted if more lamps and longer
time are given to the preliminaries.
The most important part of the home
arrangement consists in getting the
room hot, and this the girl finds eas
ier to accomplish in winter, when the
steam is on, than in summer, when
she has only the lamps to produce
heat at ninety degrees.
Using a steamer chair, quite as in
professional baths, she swathes her
self in a sheet, and with her back to
the light, stays there for half an hour,
during which time she gets into
profuse perspiration. A jug of ice
water keeps its coolness a sufficient
length of time for her to have one or
two refreshing drinks, which also in
crear is,the throwing off of perspira
? cold cloth on her head prevents
any sensation of faintness.
At the end of half an hour, a time
that is marked by a clock, the girl
stands on a bath mat before a basin
of water, and with a good bath brush
and plenty of good soap scrubs her
entire body. Then, as well, as she
can, she kneads and massages her
body, the process taking ten minutes
or more. The lamps are burning
during this time, so that the heat of
the room is maintained.
After the scrub she draws the tub
full of warm water and gets into it
for a rinse. Then, letting off the
water, she rubs down with coarse
salt, this . being done before using
bath towels. After frictioning with
salt, which is strengthening, she has
another rub with Turkish towels,
puts on a thin flannel gown and goes
to bed, getting between the sheets.
Her room is darkened, and she gives
half an hour to relaxing and resting.
At the end of that time she gets up,
rubs herself with alcohol and dresses,
feeling fresh and invigorated. The
treatment is having a decidedly bene- J
flcial effect upon her complexion, [
clearing and freshening it.

DESCRIPTION OF WRIGHT MACHINE
The machine used by the Wrights
at Washington consists of two planes,
one five feet above the other, and
measuring thirty-six feet from tip to
tip. The seat for the operator is
placed in the centre of the lower
plane, off to the left of the motor.
The passenger sits on the other side
of the motor.
The motor itself is a product of the
Wright brothers-a four-cylinder,
thirty horsepower, water-cooled gas
oline engine. The gasoline is pumped
directly into the intake pipes, there !
being no carbureters. ,
The tips of the planes are flexible
for .the space of about twelve feet.
By meana of a lever they can be
turned in a curve, resembling a helio
cold, the wings moving In opposite di
rections. A second lever controls the
twin rudders, which are supported by
a brace ten feet from the rear of the
planes. By working the two levers
together the equilibrium of the ma
chine is maintained.
Ten feet in front of the operator's
seat two planes resembling a box kite
about fifteen by three feet are used
for controlling the ascent and descent.
Two propellers about nine foot in di
ameter and revolving in opposite di
rections are used to thrust the aero
The weight of the machine, includ

Mr. J. T. Shuptrlne. Savannah. Ga.
Dear Sir:-I have a friend in tho
country herc who suffered for years with
Eczema, and like myself has tried all
the "sure cure salvcH" lor it with no:re
llef. I told him ii '.ie used Tetterine he
would soon be relieved, for it is the only
thing that I ever used that would kill it,
-and I ought to know for I have had lt
for 10 years, and never got any relier
until I used your Tetterine. I told him
that if he would try it,'and it failed to
benefit him. it would coat him nothing.
1 would pay for lt myself; but I am not
uneasy as to the results.
It will kill any corn, for my wife had
one that gave her no end of misery, and
I prevailed upon her to use Tetterine
freely on lt. and lt soon disappeared.
There Is nothing eaual to lt.

Eczema Made Hands and Feet Swell,
Peel and Get Raw-Anns Affected,
Too-Gave Up All Hope of Cnire
-Quickly Cured by Cuticura.
"I suffered from eczema on my hands,
arms and feet for about twelve years; my
hands and feet would swell, sweat and itch,
then would become callous anu get very
dry, then peel off and get raw. I tried
most every kind of salve and ointment
without success. I tried several doctors,
but at last gave up thinking there was a
cure for eczema. A friend of mine in
sisted on my trying the Cuticura Remedies,
but I did not give them a trial until I got
so bad I had to do something. I secured a
set and by the time they were used I could
see a vast improvement and my bands and
feet were healed up in no time. I lave had
no trouble since. Charles T. Bauer, R. F.

Are the Schools at Fault?
The country is gaining on the city
steadily, but not fast enough; and
the reason is just this one of igno
rance. The schools are doing all
they can to spoil farm boys, giving
them all sorts of information except
about what constitutes farm life. In
this way the best of them are tumbled
into the city chaos, and it is hard
work to counteract this drift, and
locate the tired-out city folk in gar
dens. We are gaining, however, and
the percentage of the increase of pop
ulation that faces countryward is
double that of 1890. Huge cities are
no longer needed. We do not need
to concentrate wealth or to use it
in the bulk.' We have got our huge
enterprises that required syndicates
and trusts, off our hands; and now
the great problem is to secure a more
equable distribution of the wealth we
have acquired. We must also vastly
increase our production in order to
feed the enormously growing popu
lation; and at least one-half of our
non-producers, who now make up
what is called the laboring class, aud
a ?rood many of thc capitalists as
well, must be gol into a position
where they can create food for them
selves, and add to the big surplus
needed for others.-E. P. Powell, in
the Outing Magazine for August.
