Obed slowly polished the back of one
hand with the palm of the other and
razed moodily at the ground.
"Well," he replied at last, "we had
some talk a day or so ago 'bout gettin'
the buggy painted."
"Well," prompted Caleb a little im
patiently, "what about it?"
Obed roused himself. "rd kind of
sot my mind on the color I wanted It,
but I hadn't gone so far as to tell hex
bout it," he explained. "I thought
perhaps I wouldn't. I thought some
day when I wa'n't busy rd haul the
buggy down to Dan Noble's paint shot
and set him to work on it-tell him tc

yaller and the body a real dark blue.'
Caleb stifled something that might
have been either a laugh or a cough.
"It'll look kind of gay, won't It, whet
you get It done?" he asked.
"I d'know-mebbe it would have,'
Obed conceded, "but it didn't get as
far as that."
"I figgered," Obed went on, "that
mebbe 'twould be as well If I didn't
take my wife to Bangor with me when
I bought the paint; so I went out and
dug some of my early p'taters to haul
in-I knew she wouldn't ride in on nc

didn't fetch much more'n half price
but I figgered I c'd afford to lose a lit.

sake of gettin' the kind of paint I
wanted 'thout havin' to argue.
"It took me some time to get rid of
my p'taters, and, as a matter of fact, I
lost more on 'em than I had to pay fox
the paint, and that galled me some.
When I got home I got the paint on

ut to the barn-she most always
comes out to see If I've forgot any
thing she's sent for. But I hadn't for
got anything, for a wonder, so that
part was all right.
"Come mornin', I went out to the
carriage house to get out the buggy
and haul It down to Noble's-and, Ca
leb, there wa'n't a sign of a buggy
there! I couldn't understand it, and I
went Into the house to ask 'bout It.
She was workin' at the sink, and she
never even turned round when I asked
her where the buggy was.
"'The buggy's down to Dan Noble's

I heard my jaw click when It dropped

what in tunket am I goin' to do with

"'You never said anything to me,

of short. 'What color did you get?'
And then I had to tell her.
"'Well,' says she, 'you c'n do any

Dan Noble come up here and get that
buggy, and by this time he's got the
fust coat on to It-and It's black paint,
too. You can do what you like with
them fancy colors of yours,' she says.
"So the upshot Is, I've dug a load
of p'taters and sold 'em for half price,
and I'ye got two cans of paint that I
d'know's I can sell at all, and I lost
my day's work-and I ain't goin' to

"I guess your way's 'bout as good
as any," Obed concluded resignedly.
Dream Reveals Hiding Place.

serts that a dream revealed to him
the hiding place of a can of gold, the
property of John Belleman, his prede
cessor on the farm. Belleman did not
believe . In banks, and secreted his
money. He died suddenly and did not
reveal even to his wife where he had
it secreted. Hell's story is that he
had a dream that he was digging for
Belleman's money In the haymow of
the barn. He wa about to give up
the task when the spirit of Belleman
appeared and commanded him to dig
on. The next morning he went to the
haymow, dug under the hay and found
a tin box. He took it to the home
of Mrs. Belleman, who counted the
contents, $5,000 In gold, and Hell was

BELL HAS HISTORY
HANGS IN CONNECTICUT VILLAGE
AND IS VERY OLD.
Cast in Spain Many Centuries Ago, It
Has Passed Through Numerous
Vicissitudes to a Truly Peace
ful "Old Age."
The oldest hell In the United States
and one of the oldest in the world is
in East Haddam, Conn. The inscrip
tion on it tells that it was cast in
Spain in the year 815, not long after
the conquest of Spain by the Moors.
If the bell could speak it might tell
how it saw the Moors lay waste the
fair vineyards of Castile and how for
400 years it slived under Moorish rule.
It might tell of the note it sung in the
chimes that rang out the marriage of
Ferdinand and Isabel in the town of
Aragon. It might tell how for 000
years it called for the rich and poor
for joy and for sorrow, ringing out
the bridal procession and tolling for
the dead. Then, when the great Na
poleon sacked Spain in the early nine
teenth century and the duke of Well
ington overthrew him, this little bell
was removed, its home was razed and,
in sad company with many others, it
was taken away.
In 1835 a shipload of bells, that once
hung in Spanish churches which Na
poleon had destroyed, was sent to
America. Here the bells were to be
recast and hung in the churches of the
The little bell, even then too old to
travel, a veteran in the world's battles
and a singer of great worth, was
shipped along in this motley- throng.
At this time in East Haddam, Conn.,
lived William Willys Pratt, a New
York ship chandler. His wife's family
was closely identified with St. Steph
en's Episcopal society, which had
erected a church on the hill east of
The little church was minus a bell.
Knowing of the shipload of bells and
being able to obtain one of the load,
they purchased the old Spanish bell.
The little bell was selected from among
many hundreds of others because of
Its lovely tone and hung soon after in
the chapel of St. Stephen.
For 65 years it rang out the joys
and sorrows of this new people from
the church belfry. The woodland and
the river echoed its sweet tones. Again
it called the people to worship on the
Sabbath. It tolled for the departed
and sang love songs for the newly
Later the little St. Stephen church
was condemned, worn out and unused,
but the bell was still singing, with vel
vety voice, to the people of the town.
After the church was destroyed the
bell was placed on an old stone wall
near the little schoolhouse of Nathan
Hale, and but for the interest of two
who knew and loved the old bell it
would have been lost. Even so, the
exposure to the weather and the great
age of the bell made it crack, greatly
Impairing its lovely tone.
In the ea:ly days of East Haddam,
two boys had daily played in the little
church, tinkering their sticks and nails
against the old bell and enjoying its
tiny tones. When their old friend was
neglected, for the bell was almost hu
man to them, these boys, grown old
themselves now, were not willing to
see it left on the stone wall.
The Daughters of the Revolution
had just purchased the little school
house of Nathan Hale in East Had
dam, and to this society applied one of
these men in behalf of the bell.
Through his Intercession it was hung
again, this time in the new St. Steph
en's church, by the side of the Na
than Hale school, and again it is do
