themselves. They plimjiod through
wheat up to their knees at every step
All at once, nbovo the frantic lilssi.r;
of the burled skyscraper and the wild
calling of the car tlnks, I heard the
stentorian tones of Neighbor, mounted
on n twisted truck, organizing the men
at hand Into n wrecking gang. Spoil
people began running up the ynrd to
where the skyscraper lay, like another
Samson, prostrate In the midst of th"
destruction It had wrought. Foremost
among the excited men, covered with
dirt and blood, staggered Dad Hamilton.
"Where's .MeNeal?" cried Neighbor.
Hamilton pointed to the wreck.
"Why didn't he JumpV" yelled
Hamilton pointed at the twisted
tower; the red light still burned in
"You changed the signals on him,"
he cried savagely. "What does It
mean? We had right against everything.
What does It mean?" he raved.
In a frenzy.
Neighbor answered him never a
word; he only put his hand on Dad's
"Kind him first! Find him!" he repeated,
with a strain In his voice I
never heard till then, nnd the two
giants hurried away together. When
I reached the skyscraper, burled In the
thick of the smash, roaring like a volcano,
the pair wore already luto the
jam like a brace of ferrets, hunting
for the engine crews. It seemed an
hour, though It was much less, before
they found any one; then they brought
out r.Ts fireman. Neighbor found him
Hut his back was broken. Back again
they wormed through twisted truck-,
under splintered beams In and around
and over choked with heat, blinded
by steam, shouting as they groped,
listening for word or cry or gasp.
Soon we heard Dad's voice In a dlf
ferent cry, one that meant everything
and the wreckers, turning like beavers
through n dozen blind trails, gathered
all close to the big fireman. He was
under a great piece of the cab where
none could follow, nnd he was crying
for a bar. They passed him a bar;
other men, careless of life and limb,
tried to crawl under nnd in to him, but
he warned them back. Who Jut a
man baked twenty years in an engine
cab could stand the steam that poured
on him where he lay?
Neighbor, Just outside, Hashing a
light, heard the labored strain of his
breathing, saw him getting half up,
bend to the bar, and saw the Iron give
like lead in his hands as he pried
Neighbor heard and told me long afterward
how the old man tlungthe bar
away with an Imprecation and cried
for one to help him. for n minute
meant a life now. The boy lying plnue 1
under the shattered cab was roasting
In a Jet of live steam. The master me
ehnnle crept In.
By signs Dad told him what to do
and then, getting on his knees, crawled
straight Into the dash of the white
Jet crawled Into It and got the cab
on his shoulders.
Crouching an Instant, the giant muscles
of his back set In a tremendous
effort. The wreckage snapped and
groaned, the knotted legs slowly nnd
painfully straightened, the cab for a
passing Instant rose In the air, nnd In
that Instaut Neighbor dragged Georgie
MeNeal from out the vise of deatli and
passed him, like a pinch bar, to the
men waiting next behind. Then Neighbor
pulled Dad back, blind now and
senseless. When they got the old fireman
out he made a pitiful struggle to
pull himself together. He tried to
stand up, but the sweat broke over
him, and he sank In a heap at Neighbor's
That was the saving of Georgie
and out there they still tell you
about that lift of Dad Hamilton's.
We put him on the cot at the hospital
next to his engineer. Georgie,
dreadfully bruised and scalded, came
on fast in spite of his hurts, but the
doctor said Dad had wrenched n ten
don In that frightful effort, nnd he lay
there a very sick and very old man
long after the young engineer was up
and around telling of his experience.

at Dad's bedside. "I knew we had tin

"It's a lawyer that looks after him

"Well what's his name?"
"Scaylor Ephralm Scaylor."
"Scaylor?" echoed Georgie In amazement.
"Yes. Why, do you know him?"
"Why, that's the man mother nnd I

r sixteen yearj ago. He was running an
3nglue and had a wreck. There were
5ome passengers killed. The dispatcher
managed to throw the blame on father,
and they Indicted him for manslaughter.
He pretty near went crazy,
and all of a suddeu he disappeared,
ind we never heard of him from that
day to this. But this man Scaylor.

about where father was, only he always
Trembling like a leaf. Dad
up on his elbow. "What's your mother's
name, son? What's your name:"
Georgie looked confused. "I'll tell
rou. Dad. There's uothlug to be ashamed
of. I was foolish enough, I told
you once, to go out on a strike with
the engineers down there. I was
anly a kid, and wo were nil blacklisted.
So I used my middle name, MeNeal.
My full name Is George MeNeal SIu
The old fireman made a painful effort
to sit up, to speak, but he choked.
Ells face contracted, and Georgie rose
frightened. With a herculean effort
the old man raised himself up and
grasped Georgle's hands.
"Son," he gasped to the astonished
boy, "don't you know me?"
"Of course I know you. Dad. What's
the matter with you? Lie down."
"Boy, I'm your own father. My
name Is David Hamilton Sinclair. I
had the trouble, Georgie." He choked
up like a child, and Georgie MeNeal
went white and scared; then he grap
id the gray haired man in his arms.
When I dropped In an hour later they
ivero talking hysterically. Dad was e
plaining how he had beeu sending
money to Scaylor every month, and
Georgie was contending that neither
he nor his mother had ever seen a cent
)f It. But one great fact overshadowed
ill the villainy that night father and
ion were united and happy and a message
had already gone back to the old
lomo from Georgie to his mother, te'I
Ing her the good news.
"And that Indictment was wiped out
long ago against father," said Georg'e
to me, "but that rascal Scayfor kept
nrrltlng him for money to fight it with

Neighbor and told him about It, nnd

Less than a week afterward a gentle

that he would never more touch a

and the Acton run.(
And when Georgie, who takes tlu

climbs Into Dad's cab, shoves the old
gentleman aside and snoots around the
yard in the rejuvenated skyscraper at
a hair raising rate of speed.

full of alkali that Georgie gave her a

Almost every one has made hla Jest
about the pronenoss of doctors to

opposite course from that ordered by
another, but not every ono has had an
opportunity to conduct such an experiment
as was made by the late Baron
Luta, formerly prime minister of Bavaria.
The baron was onco severely
wounded in battle in both legs. Tin-wound
In one leg was much like that
In the other. It struck him that there
was a chance to study the ways of the
surgical profession nnd beguile the
long hours of his convalescence. lie
accordingly called In one doctor an 1
gave him charge of his right leg. but
told him nothing about the wound I:i
the other, and then called In another
doctor for his left leg, keeping him
similarly In Ignorance about the
wounded right leg. The doctors adopted
a very different method of tr -at
ment, but both wounds healed at nlvit
the same time. When the baron's 1 -were
quite well he derived a great do;.!
of amusement from getting the dot
tors together nnd mystifying them with
questions about the way each bad
treated "his leg."

eousidered It as a diabolical Invention.
Trlthemius, abbot of Spauhelm, had
