.T' S goin' to be a nasty
night," said Uncle Terry,
coming in from the shed
and dumping an armful of
wood in the box behind the kitcheu
stove, ".an' the combers is just a-hump
in' over White Hoss ledge, an' the
spiray's flyin' halfway up the light
"The Lrd-a-massy help any poor
soul that goes ashore tonight'" re
spouded a portly. white haired woman
beside the stove as a monster wave
made the little dwelling tremble.
Unie fTerry took off his dripping
son-weszr :.:LI coat and. hanging them
over the wood box, went to the sink
and began pumping a basin ot water.
'Better have some warm, Silas." said
the woman, taking the steaming kettle
from the stove and following him.
"It's more comfortin'."
When he had washed and combed
his scanty gray locks and beard at a
small mirror he stood for a moment
beside the stove. His weather beaten
face that evinced character, so pro
nounced were its features, wore a
smile, and his deep set gray eyes emit
ted a twinkle.
"Supper 'most ready, Lissy?" he ask
ed, eying a pot on the stove that gave
out an appetizing odor. "i'm hungry
'nough to eat a mule with the harness
"'Twill be in a minit," was the re
ply. "Better go into t'other room
where Telly's settin' the table."
Uncle Terry obeyed, and, finding a
bright fire burning there. stood back
to it, smiling affectionately at a young
girl busy beside the table. She had an
oval face. a rather thin and deliente
nose, small, sweet mouth and eyes that
were big. blue and appealing. A wealth
of light hair was coiled on the back of
her head, and her form was full and
"It's blowing ha'rd tonight, father.
isn't It?* she observed. "I can feel
the waves shake the house." Then,
not waiting for an answer, she step
ped to a closet and, bringing a short
gray coat and felt slippers, pushed an
armchair to the fire and. placing the
slippers beside it, held the eoat ready
for him to put it on.
-'You might as well be comfortable,"
she added. -You haven't got to go out
again, have you,'
The man seated himself and. draw
ing off his wet boots and putting on his
slippers, opened his hands toward the
blaze and observed. "You and Lissy's
bound to cosset me, so bimeby I won't
stir out 'cept the sun shines."
Silas Terry, or Uncle Terry, as every
body on Southport island called him,
was and for thirty years had been the
keeper of the Cape light, situated on
the outermost point of the island. To
this he added the daily duty of mall
carrier to the head of the island, eight
miles distant, and there connecting
with a small steamer plying between
the Maine coast -islands and a shore
port. He also, in common with other
of the Islanders, tilled a little land and
kept a few traps set for lobsters. He
was an honest, kind hearted and fairly
well read man whose odd sayings and
quaint phrases were proverbial. With
his wife, whom everybody ca'lled Aunt
Lissy, and adopted daughter 'relly, he
lived in a neat white house close to the
Cape light, and, as he put it, "his latch
string was allus out."
Uncle Terry had a history, and not
the least interesting episode in it was
the entrance Into h's life of this same
fair and blue eyed girl. Perhaps his
own graphic description will best tell
"It was 'bout the last o' March, more
than eighteen year ago an' durin' one
o' the worst blows I ever rec-elect since
I key' the light, that one mornin' I
spied a vessel hard an' fast on White
Hoss ledge, 'bout half a mile off the
p'int. It had been snowin' some an'
froze on the windows o' the light, so
mebbe she didn't see It 'fore she fetch
ed up all standin'. The seas was pound
in' her like great guns, an' in her rig
gin' I could see the poor devils half
hid in snow an' Ice. Thar wa'n't no
hope for 'em, for no dory could 'a' lived
a moment in that awful gale, an' thar
wa'n't no lifeboat here. Lissy an' me
tmade haste to build a fire on the p'int
to show the poor critturs we had feelin'
for 'em, an' then we just stood an'
wated an' watched for 'em to go down.
It mIght 'a' been an hour-there's no
telln'-when I saw a big bundle tossin'
light an' comin' ashore. I ran over to
the cove where I keep my boats an'
grabbed a piece o' rope an' boat hook
an' made ready. The Lord must 'a'
steered that bundle, for It kept workin'
along, headin' for a. bit o' beach just
by the p'int. I had a rope round my
waist, an' Lissy held on to the end, an'
when the bundle struck I made fast
with the boat hook, an' the next comb
er tumbled me end over, bundle an' all,
up on to the sand. I grabbed at it an'
'fore the next one come had It high an'
dry out o' the way.
"It's allus been a puzzle to me just
why I did it, for I was wet through
an' most froze, an' what I'd .pulled out
looked like a feather bed tied round
with a cord, but I out with my knife
an' cut the cords, an' thar in the mid
dio' two feather beds was a box an'
'in the box a baby' alive an' squallin'.
"I didn't stop to take the robe off my
waist, but grabbed the box an' ran for
the house, with Lissy after me. We
had a fire in the stove, an' Lissy
warmed a blanket an' wrapped the
pothingup an' held It over the stove
ani ised'it an' took on just as wim
ginil. When L~see it was safe I cut
'orthe p'lnt, thinkin' to wave my hat
an' show 'em we had saved the baby,
bptasqall o' snow had struck in, an'
when It let up the vessel was gone.
Txar was bIts o' wreck cum ashore,
pi~es o': spars, a boat all stove in an'
teikean' a wooden shoe. In the box
theaby was In. was two little blan
kets, an'.tied In a bIt o' cloth two rings
an' a locket with'two picters in It, an'
a paper was pinned to the baby's
lothes with furrin writin' on It. It
said the baby's name was Etelka Pe
terson an', 'To God I commend my
child,' an' signed, 'A Despairing Moth
er.' From bits o' the wreck we learned
the vessel was from Stockholm an'
"Ihe paper was sech a heart techin'
appeal, an' as we'd just buried our
only child, a six-year-old gal, we was
glad to adopt this 'un an' bring her up.
In due course o' time I made a report
' th wreck to the lighthouse board
LEE ed. SHEA' D - -R
in* that we had saved one nre. a ga
baby, an' give all the facts. Nothin'
ever came on 't. though, an' we was
glad thar didn't. We kep' the little
gal, an' she wa'n't long in growin' into
our feelin's, an' the older she growed
the more we thought o' her."
Of course the history of Uncle Ter
ry's protegee was known to every resi
dent of the island, and as she grew in
to girlhood and attended school at the
Cap'e. as the little village a quarter
mile back of the point was called, until
she matured into a young lady every
one came to feel that in a way she be
longed to the kindly lighthouse keeper
and his wife Melissa.
To them she was all that a devoted
daughter could be, and when school
days were over she became Uncle Ter
ry's almost constant companion. On
pleasant days she went with him to
attend his traps and on his daily drive
to the head of tbe island. She was
welcome in every house and well be
loved by all those simple. kindly peo
ple, who feit an unusual kindly inter
est in her existence. Of tenwder heart
and timid nature. her appealing eyes
won the love of young and old. On
Sunday evenings she was always one
of the small congregation that gathered
to hold simple services in the little
church at the Cape, a square one story
building that never knew paint or shut
Of beau she hardly knew the mean
ing, and it must be said the few young
men who remained on the island after
reaching the age of courtship were I
neither in garb nor manners such as
would attract a girl like Telly.
One special talent she was gifted
with, and that was the ability to draw
and paint well. Even, as a child at school
she would draw pictures on a slate that
were surprising, and when older and
she obtained materials she worked un
til she became In a way quite an artist
As Uncle Terry put it, "Makin' picters
comes nat'rl to the gal."
She had never received even the first
lessons in that charming art, but for
all that every rom in the house had
dozens of her efforts, large and small,
hanging on the walls and in the oddest
frames. Sone were of strips of thin
board covered'with little shel2s or dried
moss, and others of rustic -hndiwork
and mounted with fir cones.
There was but one shadow in her life.

Among the Southport islanders Un
.le Terry was considered an odd stick,
and yet one who would go out of his
way to do a good turn to others. He
was seldom seen at church, though his
wife and Telly usually were. As he
once remarked: "It's a good thing for
em, 'cause it takes up thar mind an'
Is more sociable, though prayin' allus
seems to me a good deal like a man
tryin' to lift himself by his boot straps.
It keeps him busy, though, an' it's
In spite of his investment in a mine
he had been frugal and owned most
f the land between the village and
the point and wna also joint owner,
with two other men, in a small trad
ing schooner that made semimonthly
trips between the Cape and Boston.
She carried fish, clams, lobsters, hay
and potatoes and fetched an "all sorts"
cargo useful to the islanders, from a
paper of needles to a hogshead of mo
The most pronounced characteristic
f Uncle Terry was his unfailing good
humor, tinged with a mild sarcasm.
He loved his fellow men and yet en
joyed puncturing their small conceits,
but so droll was his way of doing it
that no one felt the sting. To Bascom,
who kept the only store and also post
office at the Cape and dearly loved to
hear himself talk, Uncle Terry once
said: "You've got the greatest gift d
gab I ever heerd, Bascom, an' you
could 'a' made your fortin in the show
business. But if you're ever took with
religion the hull island '11 turn infid
And, again, when Deacon Oaks, the
leader at all prayer meetings, assured
him how great a blessing religion waE
and how much he enjoyed divine serv
ice, Uncle Terry answered: "Your tak
in' the lead at meetin's Is a blessin' tc
the rest, for none of 'em has to worry
'bout who's goin' to speak next. They
know you're allus ready."
In this connection it must be stated
that the spiritual life of Southport w'a
of a primitive description. The small
unpainted church at the Cape, abov
which hung a dirainutive bell, was the
only place of worship, and to this ever3
other Sunday came a minister from th(
mainland. It was furnished with long
wooden settees, and a small cottage or
gan graced the platform, upon whicd
an antique desk did duty as pulpit and
a storage place for hymn books. Fou
wall bracket lamps lighted this roon
for evening service, and their usuall3
smoky chimneys lent a depressing ef
feet to all exhortation. Mandy Oake
presided at the organ and turned gos
pel hymns into wheezy and rather lonj
drawn out melodies. Most of the audi
nce tried to chase the tunes along and
imagined they were singing, which per
haps is all that is necessary. On the
Sundays between the minister's visits
nly evening services were held and ev
~ry Thursday evening a prayer meet
