Thcro was a flro engine house near
Mr. Singleton's city residence, and It
so happened that the placo was on ob
ject of curiosity to, his llttlo daughter
Dess. Tho moment she heard tho sharp
ring of tho gong announcing a flro sho
would run to tho cnglno hotlso to sec
tho horses hurried to their places bo

Impatiently till they were hooked, then
dash out of tho house, followed by Uio
ragtag and bobtail of tho town-and
Sho was six years old when this ad
miration for flro apparatus, horses and
men first developed Itself, and very
soon sho was noticed by tho firemen
sitting at tho doors of the engine house
In armchairs waiting for an alarm.
Ono day one of them offered to show
her the premises. Sho accepted tbe In-
vltation and inspected everything with
eyes aa big as Baucers, When sho de
ported she was' told to make herself
at home thcro.
And sho did. film
he own Bw'ee't w'fli; dlmbedniri on tho
book and ladder ruck, the hose carta
and occasionally would ask to be put
on the back of ono of the horses. One
aoy when sho was ten years old a roll
of parchment was left, at bet- homo on
which was written, "Thbi Is to certify
mat niiizaDctn Singleton boa been duly

rounded by pictures, of, engines dashing

was too late to put her down. At any
rate, no one made a move to do bo, and
she was carried to the Arc There was

and since the ladders were not needed
sno was permitted to remain nerched
high, an object of Interest to a gaping
crowd. On the return she was put
down at her home and lectured by her
But from playing In an end no houso
sno una got a taste for coins: to a are.
and from that tlmo forward all efforts
to keep her away from tho former
failed. Ono day when tho department

A Close Call
By DONALD CHAMBER LIN
During the administration of Prc-d
dent Ilucrin of Mexico I was employ
ed by tho United States government to
do certain service for tho state depart
ment I went by land, crossing the
Itlo G rondo at Laredo and entering
Coaliulln. I soon fell In with a promi
nent leader of tho rebel forces, who,
after I had satisfied him that my mis
sion was not detrimental to bis Inter
ests, expressed a willingness that 1
should go to my destination, tho City
''How would you llko to earn some
money?" asked tho general.
"I would gladly earn money If I can
do bo wlthouti compromising my cm
ploycrs at Washington."
"What I havo in mind would not in
terfere with that at all. I desire- to
get a message through to a certain
person In tho City Of Mexico. As
messenger of tho United States y
would not be suspected. Your govc
mcnt baa npt taken sides In this m.
tcr, and there Is nothing to prevent
your being the bearer of a letter from
mo to a friend."
"Bnt supposing I am caught with
such a letter on my person?" I asked.
"In that caso you would bo shot"
"And. what would I receive for tak
lng this risk?"
He named a sum that tempted me.
It seemed to mo that being In tho cm
ploy of the United States government,
there would be' llttlo or no risk In my
bearing tho general message. I need
ed tbe sum be offered for a certs. In
purpose and concluded to stake being
shot against It
He wrote bis message on a bit lof
thin paper about three Inches square.
I was to take it to a man high in favor
with President Huerta. His name and
address wero given me, bnt were not'
written on tbe message, though It Was
signed by a fictitious name. I decided
to carry it In tbe upper vest pocket
tho left side, my objoct being to hove
it where I could easily get It to de
stroy It In case I was cornered. Tbe
general paid mo the money for Uie
service I was about to render, for I
was to receive It whether I succeeded
in delivering the message or not
Going southward on tho general's
pass I struck the Federal lines not
far from tho City of Mexico. I In
formed tho commanding officer of my
mission and was received by him with
tho courtesy due one In the United
States sen-Ice. Indeed, being stationed
at a point 'where be saw bo one except
bis officers and men be seemed pleased
to see me, and atooe I reached his

meant death. Tho ofllcer was looking
over soino military papers at a table,
with an unllghtcd clgaretto between
his lips. Taking a cigar from my pock
et, and with a show of coolness I did
not feel, I deliberately cut off tho cud
with my pcnknlfo and asked him If he
had a match. Ho produced one, struck
It and was about to light bis clgaretto
when, remembering politeness, ho ex
tended tho match to me.
"After you," I said.
Ho touched it to tho end of his ciga
rette and handed it to me. I put the
flame to the end of my cigar, but pur
posely failed to closo my lips tight lu
order to prevent suction. When tho
match bad burned noar my fingers I
took tbo message from my vest pocket
