The old mill town seemed steeped In glorious sunshine the day It welcomed home its returned sons from the va rious branches of war service ; bells rang, bands played and banners waved everywhere. The beautifully staged floats, each representing its bit of history, each bearing loyal men and women who had In their appointed way fought hard to help win the war, were also generously applauded as they passed on their way. After the parade came the banquet and speeches, and then dancing in the town hall. Certainly each returned man and boy should have felt his heart waon with appreciation of the hearty welcome given him, Sand Stephen Glenn, honorably discharged that very day, and who bad arrived in town only a short time before the parade start ed had honestly appreciated every ef fort made In his behalf as a returned soldier, and yet there was a dissatis fied look in his dark eyes as they roved around the hall, even as be danced with the prettiest girl and best dancer there. He was looking for little Betty Plummer, and she had not yet ap peared. Seven laboriously written letters which should have passed the censor, he bad sent to her. Even while keeping step to the gay music he sorrowfully admitted to him self that as far as he was concerned be might as well have tied a stone to each letter and have dropped it into the deep sea; for he had not heard from her. Members of his company bad received letters from the home torn more or less regularly, but the sensitiveness which made him hide deep his hurt feelings, counseled si lence, and he had asked no questions of them. Although he was fond of dancing be suddenly, decided early In the evening to go home; and as a result soon found himself walking rapidly In the direction of the old Plummer home stead, where Betty lived with hei grandmother, and which was in the opposite direction from his boarding place. Supposing that Betty had stayed away from the dunce in order to avoid him, he argued to himself supposing even that she preferred spending th evening at home with someone whe had taken his place in her heart There really wasn't any reason why hi shouldn't stroll down by the old-fash ioned gaiubrel-roofed white cottagt where she lived, and'he was soon standing close to the old furrowed stone which after many years of serv ke as a part of the busy old grist mill had been chosen by Betty's grnud' father as a suitable stepping stone tc his front door. In the sitting room there was a cheery light and outside the old-fushloned Dowers which grew about the sides of the old stunt seemed to sleepily nod to him a wel come as they swayed toward him ft the pale moonlight. Then the unex pected happened. Prom force of habit and almost unconscious of the act, h raised the old brass knocker ana knocked upon the door. It was Betty who came, opened tin door quickly, and then stood gazing at him. Without being wholly successful she tried to veil the look of happlnesj which sprang into her blue eyes as sin recognized him, and checking an exelu- mation, with hands hanging limply hj her sides, she silently waited for hire to speuk. "Don't stand there looking like that Betty 1" he burst out. "You must hav knoVn that I couldn't keep away ; thai I would have to learn from your own lips your reason fer not answering mj letters to you. Maybe they weren't in teresting, maybe they weren't weL' written; but, oh, Betty! couldn't yot have written just once?" Her expres siou chunked und she tried to speak calmly, but 1W voice trembled ami broke. "You told me you would send youi address, and I waited for you to write "At first I was very patient, and then I but oh, I didn't get any letters Stevle-" and for a moment she cov ered her eyes with both hands. A feeling of perfect comprehenslor. crept over him. Couldn't he under stand well enough how hard it had been to bear the strain of waiting Eagerly he caught at her hands and drew them swiftly away from her face "Seven letters, Betty I" he cried "Seven letters I wrote and sent and would have written 77 morev only I made up my mind at last that you did not care for my letters, or for me." In his voice was th ring of truth- Truth shone In his clear, young eyes, and all her doubts and fears vanished; but with gloomy foreboding he asked: "Can't you believe me?" "Yes I Yes!" she replied hastily "And no one else in all the wideworld could be so welcome," she said softly. As a few moments later she stood In the sitting room doorway, watching a he placed his hat on the hook In tin little front entry, her smiling eyes and lips seemed to him to still be saying: "No one else in all the wide world could be so welcome." Looking over her shoulder he noted the big old armchair, the red and green woolen carpet, so familiar to him. And even the little sitting room echoed her softly spoken words, and a boyish smile lit up his face as he remarked : "The right sort of welcome from the right girl. Can you beat It?"

Palatka News Printery MADE BRAVE FIGHT FOR LIFE Half-Breed Sailor, Wrecked Off Phil ' Ippines, Simply Determined He . Would Not Die. Among the crew of the Poigat, a ship that foundered off Malabon, In the Philippines, was a half-breed sailor named Alejandro Lorenzo. In the moment of the ship's sinking he was agile enough, and lucky enough, to leap clear of the wreck and escape the deadly suction of the disappearing vessel. He was olive and uninjured, but he was many miles from shore, and there was no help in sight. After swimming for an hour he found a hatch cover on which he rest ed. Then pushing the hatch cover ahead, he started for San Nicolas. He was just reaching shallow water when the tide carried him out to sea again. As nltcht came on the wind increased and the waves tossed him and his hatch cover back and forth till he was almost exhausted, being washed toward the Cavlte shore. For several hours he drifted in, but just as his hope grew strong the tide and wind swept him In spite of his struggles once more out to sea. Something brushed against his leg. He thnunht that it was a shark and screamed In fear. "It did not touch me, or I should have gone mad," he said. The water was cold, the night was dark and the rain beat down on him. He heard a cry In the darkness, and pushed his hatch cover in the di rection whence the sound came. He found a Filipino hoy, another sur vivor of the wreck, clinging to an oil box. They drifted together. When daylight came they could see boats, hut could not moke themselves heard or seen. They were tortured by thirst, salt water got into their mouths, they drifted all day. Night came again. Soon after dark they saw the lights of a breakwater, and with new hopes noticed that the lights grew larger and more distinct They were betrig washed toward the shore. But the boy cbuld not hold out Taken with cramps, he lost his hold on the oil box and went down. The man was washed Into the middle of the bay and drifted all night At dawn he was almost ready to give up, but the wind and waves head ed him for the shore and he took heart Then he saw boats and used his last strength in trying to reach them. The boatmen saw him, were able to get to him In time and picked him out of the water. There was not much of the man left and shrieking for water, he collapsed in the bottom of the boat As he lay on a pallet after he found himself able to talk again, bis res cuers spoke of bis wonderful endur ance. Alejandro in reply said that of coarse, he had done the best he could. He wanted to live, he said. New York Herald.
