They like what they are used to, and they like to maintain the relation to other people that they are used to main tain. Now. the concern about other peo ple and what they have and how they 'live can be diminished If there Is strength of mind enough to control jtt People, old or young, who have a ufflelently strong Idea of life of their jown, an idea detached from commodl itles, a spiritualized Idea, can get along .and keep their quality and live their 'life and grow In grace on something mear to a mere provision of neces jsarles.

"Road I Lincoln would have walked miles for utint you have at your door." So runs a line of free advice, displayed for the benefit of the public In a western town In the United States concerning a public library. The truth of the statement about Lincoln Is be yond question. When one thinks ol the availability of libraries to most Americans of the present day, It wonli' seem that there should be growing u nn abundance of timber for the presl dency.

Get rid of It, Dy from It. uvolJ It as you would a pestlfence. or It will destroy youl 1 Md you Km and at once anywhere, away .from here, where you will meet your fate If you remain." It was a solemn, eventful moment In the life of young Darrell, returned after tunny yenrs to the wild, barren district where he had been born. Near by were the cindered ruins of an old-time mansion; all about the little dip In the landscape reared the grim, rugged Tennessee mountains. A grnnd old man with whitened hair, once a powerful giant, and still having a mighty frame and firmness and de cision apparent In every lineament of his bronzed, scarred face, hnd ad dressed him Ogden Blair, mountain eer, judge and political lender, the sole survivor of the great Dlnlr-Lognn feud that had entered many a bloody page In the record of Dawson county. "Come here," he wild, and he forc ibly dragged his visitor by the arm to the open doorway, and pointed an impressive finger at Its rude Interior. "You see that table, set for six? Al ways so, and the four vacant chairs we Join, my niece. Eugenia, and I. at each meal, remind us of the stalwart, noble sons who fought mid died sus taining the Blair family honor. I am the lust of my line. A month ago Hunk Logan and his raiders burned down the house. Later he sent word that If I did not move he would end the vendetta with me." Move!" cried the old man till tils voice echoed ring Ingly to the nearest towering hill. "Why, my sons would arise from their graves to curse me. If I gave up the fight of fifty years In which never a P. lair turned his back to a foe. Here I live and. die. Hut you lad, I knew and loved your father. He was a 'gun man,' and his father before him. It was born In them. Now, why have you come back, to be tempted with the sutue wild fever of strife that went singing through the veins of the Dnr rells for well nigh a century?" "Why?" cried young Darrell, and Indeed his glowing eye told of Intrepid daring and courage. "For the sake of Eugenia, whom I love, and next, to share the perils of the man who wan my father's best friend yourself." "You must not stay I" remonstrat ed the old man In. a troubled tone. "Eugenia, too, mast go," added Blair, as a girl with a wild rose face and a form like a rare mountain sylph came around the corner of the house, and blushed and then smiled as she went up to her loyal lover. "I shall seek Hank Logan In the morning." pronounced Darrell firmly. "If I can buy my happiness and your safety from him with money, he Is welcome to the paltry dollars If not then It must be the best and swift est man," and the bund of the speak er stole mechanically to the belt con taining the familiar weapon of the d s trlct. The girl listened with downcast ey-s. but silent. She Blinply lifted her Up to meet those of her lover as be turned away, and stood waving her handker chief at him until dlstunce and teur blurred the landscape and a sight of the man she might uwer see lu life aguln. ' A solitary figure tolled up the steep side of a wild mountain, passed the tree, and crossed the dividing Hue of the bad lands. It was Floyd Dar rell. Twice during that morning a bullet sped dangerously close to the head of the persistent adventurer. Durrell kept on his way until afternoon, when he saw coming down a narrow gorge path some horsemen. Swinging him self down a network of vines to a ledve, he crouched there. The horsemen dashed by. About to attempt to regain the cliff surface. Durrell started as he heard a moan beyond a light screen of greenery. L'pvn a narrow shelf of stone lay a little child. Just In time, Darrell reached the little girl. Two hours later a body of horsemen came dashing towards him. He held the child aloft as a slgnul of distress a living flag of truce. The moment the leader of the bond neared him. Darrell knew that It was bad Hank Logan. With a glad cry he seized the child. "And who are you?" he asked. "I am Floyd Darrell," tame the quiet reply. Hank Logan lifted his gun. Across Its stock were four nicks. "The count's done!" he said, and gave the deadly chronicle of doom for the Bin Irs a fling Into the nearest gul ly. "You've won. Tell Ogden Blair I'll do the moving, and the feud Is squared. Me and my men will be over In Kentuck before another week all because you risUed your lite for my little girl."
