on his leg. ,Mr. Vance while about

slipped into a hole. He was badly

hurt, but It was not thought serious
at the time. Later on he came near
loosing his life from blood poisoning
and for the past year has suffered
great agony. It was thought his leg
would have to be amputated but upon
careful examination it was found that
a splintered bone caused the trouble.
Mr. Vance Is at home greatly encour
aged that he will soon be alright.
A special canvass is now being made

HELPING THE DOCTOR
By JOHN PHILIP ORTH.
"Father and mother are going for
two weeks, and If you can only come
down we will have an awful time."
So wrote Miss Clara Joslyn to her
city friend, Mis Irene Morton, and the
promise of the "awful time" caused an
appearance at the country seat.
The program as outlined by Miss
Clara In her mind for the entertain
ment of her friend was:
Driving out with the pony and cart
and having adventures. Going In swim
ming In tho creek. Killing crabs along
the same creek. Climbing up the hill
bnck of tho house and rolling down.
Setting the dog on book agents and
peddlers. Killing snakes down by the
willows. Putting a frog In tho garden
There were a few other things on
the program, but the above are sufll
clent to show that there were to be no
"Now, girls, bo as stondy as old
maids while wo are gone," cautioned
"Aunt Jane U to have charge of the
"Wo will mind her like children "
"Don't get the telephone out of or
der, and don't set the house, afire."
"Wo surely won't."
"If anything should happen " be
gan Mr. Joslyn as he turned back at
"Hut nothing can happen!"
The first thing on the program was
a drive in the pony .cart, and that
drive was the beginning of heaps of
things. They were not a mile from the
houso when they espied a lone man
nd horse nnd buggy coming towards
them from the village.
"I am quite sure that Is the new doc-,
tor," Raid Miss Clara. "Take a good
look at him as we pass."
"They say that while he's a smart
voung man he Isn't getting enough
practlco in the village to keep a cat
"That's too bad. It may drive him
"He doesn't know me, and I wonder
'( he will raise his hat?"
Dr. Phil Armour had put up his sign
!n the village of Greenbrlnr many
weeks ago, but there had uot been a
ilngle call for his services. The ailing
ones said It was risky to trust them
selves to a young practitioner. Dr
rmour was far from starving and he
was feeding his horse oats three times
a day, but he was ambitious and. Impa
'ient. He knew the members of the
foslyn family by sight only, but when
about to pass the pony cart he took
he risk of raising his hat to the occu
oauls and received two bows In re
turn. "Why, he's quite good-looking!" ex
Maimed Miss Irene when they passed.
"Hut he had a mournful look."
"It struck me so."
"As if the world was against hlra?"
"I say that It's a shame that old doc
'ors won't let young doctors catch
"I think so, too."
There was silence for the next flye
minutes, and then It Was Miss Irene
"Look here, Clara, I'll tell you how
we can havd lots of fun, and help
the doctor at the same time."
"When we get out of the cart at
home we twist our ankles "
"You will twist your right one and
I my left."
"We hobble Into the house. We
groan. We telephone for Dr. Armour.
He comes. It will be known all over
the village that he has' called here
"Hut what about the twisted an
kles?" was asked,
"Oh, we'll tell him that It wasn't
such a bad twist after all, and that we

Hut you are such a hand to giggle!
t wouldn't have him think we were
making game of him for any money."
"Oh, I'll keep my giggles between
my teeth 'till he Is gone."
Tho twists took place according to
schedule. Aunt June was so com
pletely hoodwinked that she got band
ages and arnica and did the telephon
ing. When Dr. Armour arrived each
young lady sat with her foot on a stool
and there was a strong smell of arnica
(n the air.
"Is It a bad sprain?" was asked.
"Not so very," was answered In
"Hut I had best overhaul them. The
bandage must give support to certain
tendons or you may be lame for life."
"Hut Aunt Jane put the bandages
on, and she's an old nurse."
"And yet may not know how to
The doctor sank down on one knee
and began to unwind the bandage from
MIeb Clara's ankle. If she protested
further she must admit the Joke I
When the flesh came Into view the
doctor looked wise and said:
"Bad sprain very bad! You can't
do any walking for a week! Good
thing I removed the bandage."
Miss Irene suppressed a giggle and
winked at Miss Clara.
"I And that the auricula was press
ing against the calclferous, and that
the bandage was wound too tightly
across the effluent muscles It Is well
that you dlijn't wait 'till morning."
Neither of tho girls waB up on ana
tomical terms, but they both had the
same Idea that the doctor was hav
ing alt tho fun to himself, and It so
bered them. When he had finish

of the other. No swelling. No sign of
a twiBt. He was either a fool-doctor
or else he was meeting their fun moro
"Did you evert" exclaimed Miss
Irene when he had departed.
"You said It would be such a Joke!"
accused Miss Clara.
"I ought to have giggled."
"If you had I'd have pushed you out
of the window! And he's coming again
In the morning! And he says we must
hop around Instead of walktngt Aren't
you a daisy of a marplot!"
"Did you understand his big

crutches after tomorrow!"
But Providence came along to help
the girls out. She did it by first bring
ing about almost a tragedy. As the
victims were going up to their rootnc
for the night, hopping from stair to
stair and giggling at every hop. Miss
Clara lost her balance and fell back
wards, and as she went she dragged
her guest with her. When they
brought up at the foot of the stairs one
had her knee-cap out of place and the
othor a broken collarbone.
"Now you've done It!" shouted Aunt
Jane as she rushed around In excite

Proposition For a French
By RYLAND BELL
Jlmnilo Mnrtindulo's father went out
to the wild west to become a ranch
man when Jitmnle wns six years old.
The consequence was that Jlmmlo
grew up with all tho freedom of a cow
puncher. That doesn't mean that be
was coarse, but that he was uncon
ventional. His father and mother be
ing refined he was himself refined, but
ho naturally partook of the spirit of
tho people among whom ho lived.
When Jlmmic was twenty-five ho
hud lost father and mother and was
in possession of one of the most ex
tensive and best stocked ranches in
New Mexico. Having never seen any
thing of the world, he concluded to
make a trip to Europe, no liked Paris
pretty well and. having a mind to so
journ there awhile, joined a club and
got himself Introduced into society.
At u function given nt the American
embassy Jlmmic met Clochette Desnlx
nnd fell desperately In lovo with her.
The young ludy seemed well pleased
with him, and Jlmmle was ready for
a proposal. But he had by this time
learned that mnrrlnpes In Europe are
not made as they are In America nnd
certainly not as they were mado
among ranch people. Mile. Desalx be
longed to n very old family, and her
father wns a stickler for etiquette.
Jlmmle knew this and. feeling his
wnnt of ability to tackle the problem
of a proposal without being coached,
imparted his desires to M. Cousholx,
a member of his club who' was con
sidered well up in such matters, and
asked for advice.
Ho was told that on no account must
ho speak to the object of his desires
until the mntter had been settled with
her father. M. Desalx should bo ap
proached with great ceremony, and
Jlmmle must give him to understand
, that ho would consider It a great honor
to be permitted to ally himself with
her father, but delicacy would suggest
that he wait for M. Desalx to speak
Jlmmle thought he understood how
the "racket was worked," as he ex
pressed it, and started off to find M.
I Desalx. The latter had just finished

Clochette. I am aware that In France
Cupid has no more place in matrimo

saying that I consider Mile. Clochette

Jlmmle paused, nnd M. Desalx saw
by his expression that be was trying
to decide between tho encomiums upon

upon him and skillfully led him back
to the business in hand,
