that today Is the tenth anniversary of
an episode which Impressed me ery
profoundly at the time. To facilitate
matters, it whs ten years ajro today
that I was made the lodging place of
an opprobrious epithet because I had
the prescience and the courage to
prophesy that the craze for bicycling
would not endure that It was an In- i

further expansion. It was a heroic
thing for mo to do, and I ncver quite
could understand how I managed to
do It. Iu the heated argument that
followed my antagonist so far forgot
himself ns to say I cannot tell what,
but It was something that made him
infinitely distasteful to me, aud I
bided my time.
I had not long to wait. Ills wife,
who practically had been bedridden
for several years, was seized with the
prevailing epidemic, rose from her
couch nnd proclaimed her lnteutlon to ,

reconciled to her inactivity that her 1

According to Jacobus Dauim, for

It Is uot for that reason, however,
that Jacobus Datum Is so pronounced
ogamst the tickler. Ills criticism is
that it doesn't tickle; that It fulls to

that the young man who had dropped
Into church from nowhere at all and
walked home from the meeting with
his daughter Rosyhol should not enter
his premises on pain of death via
bulldog Towser Dick was rather
pleased than otherwise,
nis vacation bade fair to furnish
more entertainment than he had an
ticipated. Moreover, hc was really
very much taken with Itosybel, who
i was not only the prettiest girl whom
i he had met with In his travels, but
was also blessed with a sense, of hu
i mor. This is an adorable combination,
hard to resist.
I The nfore mentioned edict was pro-
nounced on Sunday evening, when
Dick again presented himself to see
j Rosybel home from meeting. On Mon
! day morning the hayrack drove Into
the field which was bordered In part
j by the neat white palings of Farmer
John's homestead fence.
I The field did not belong to Fnrmer
John. Quite near the fence, In the
shade of a big elm tree, the young man
proceeded to assemble the boards
which, he had taken from the hayrack.
It happened that Rosybel's garden
had run sadly to weeds over Sunday,
and she was obliged to spend consider
able time out there on Monday morn
ing In consequence.

was building a house, which In her

about no. casually. Thcro was, how
ever, neither pounding of nails nor
noise of saw. Tho birds sang undis
turbed In the branches of the elm tree,
and -the hang bird In her nest watched
him without alarm.
When Farmer John camo In from
the fields nt noon ho snorted at the
sight of hts new neighbor. By this
time the houso was nearly done. Dick
was hanging tho front door, and thcro
remained only tho piazza steps to be
put In place.
When Farmer John camo In from the
fields nt night the camp organ was
hard at work on the piazza. Later
many couples came strolling by, un the
lookout to see Rosles new fellow.
They came to see nnd remained to
dance. The grass had been clipped

Every evening after that they met

her tho new callous spots which the
day had brought forth, tho while ho

Rosybel listened eagerly and let her
eyes tell him what she thought of him,
which was very pleasant for Dick and
made life altogether worth living.
By Saturday the hay was well in ex
cept from a choice patch of clover
which the farmer had been obliged to
leave out overnight. It was all sea
soned nnd cocked and ready for the
fork. The weather had been fine nil
the week, and when tho men turned
Into their beds nt an early hour there
was still no throat of change.
In the middle of tho night, however,
Dick was wakened by a low rumble of
thunder. The young man's first
thought was of those haycocks over In
the west mowing; his next was to get
there before the rain. Stopping only
for trousers aud shoes, he rushed out
to where his horse was picketed. The
moon gavo light enough between gath
ering clouds for him to see his way to
the field, where hc put In a half hour
of such work as he had never known,
i even In football season.
The hayrack was loaded and undei
way for the barn before the rain
struck. Farmer John met him In tho
farmyard with a lantern ns he drove
1 up In a hurry and stared nt him In
"Open that barn door, you loafer!"
1 Dick yelled In his excitement, qulto
forgetting that he was addressing the
father of Rosybel. Farmer John was
not used to being called a loafer, but
when be came to understand the situ
ation ho rather liked It.
