THE GUDGEONVILLE BRIDGE
Wl liner had been a school teacher,
but was now looking for something
different in tho way of opportunity,
and tho trouble was ho didn't know
what he was looking for. lie owned
several acres of fine woods or timber
land, near a deep ravine where there
wns a big, busy tannery. One day
when the clouds over his hopefulness
wore the thickest, the old tanner met
him, and said: "Wilmer, I will glvo
you ten dollars a day for tho use of
a bridge across this ravine. You
build the bridge and keep it in repair,
and I'll begin pnylng you from the
first day It 1m ready to use."
This was tho unknown something
that Wilmer had been getting ready
lie used up a great deal of the tim
ber on his land, and mortgaged the
land, and had done everything he
could to finish the bridge, but it was
not quite finished. He needed some
more money, and he didn't know
where to get it. One thing he had de
cided not to do. and that was to ask
the old tanner for money in advance.
Wlille trying to figure out a solu
tion to his perplexity, he got a letter
asking him to deliver a $25 lecture at
a teacher's institute in the next coun
ty. This brought, a good-sized ray
of hope to him. and the next day ho
went, to the county seat of his own
locality to do a little business, and
while walking by the front of a store
which was being painted, a painter
accidentally spattered up his clothes
in a ruinous manner, and they were
the clothes he intended to lecture in,
and ho had no money for new ones.
What to do was beyond his imagina
tion, but in loss than five minutes ho
met a young man who was full of en
thusiasm and very glad to meet him,
and this young man seemed to think

it was a big joke to have tho paint on
Wilmer's clothes. As Wilmer did not
cheer up very much over tho young
man's hilarity, the latter got down to
serious thought, and said:
"Now, Wilmer, I have been wanting

him think a few minutes, and they
stood there by tho curbstone until
Wilmer invited him to come into a
restaurant and havo some lunch.
There ho told him tho story of tho
bridge and how ho wns situated. Then
he offered the young man 5 per cent
Interest for tho money for six months.
Tho young man replied: "Wilmer,
I am willing to glvo you tho money
for nothing, both principal and inter

Perhaps the worst affair happened one
night when, ten miles from my homo,
I discovered my sleigh was being fol
lowed by a pack of hungry wolves. I
fired blindly into tho pack, killing one
of the "c'ves. To my relief, the oth
ers stopped to devour him, and In this
way I was able to gain on them. But
soon they wero on my scent again,
and ngain I fired, with tho same re
sult. I kept on repeating this, until
finally there was only ono fierce wolf
following my sleigh, with hungry eyes
fixed on mo in anticipation of tho sup
per he was going to make off me."
Tho friend who had listened thus
far to tho thrilling story interjected a
laugh and said, "Why, man, according
to my reckoning, that last wolf must
have had all tho other wolves Inside
Tho answer came, reluctantly and
seriously, "Well, yes. now you men
