Tou Delily!" called M Captain Drew sharply from Jf the door of the cottage " which fronted the marshes at the mouth of Squanton river. At the sound of his voice a girl of fifteen, who had been half hidden by the marsh grass while slowly making her way In a boat through the narrow, winding salt stream, stood upright and looked calmly toward the shore. The . light of the sunset was on her face, softening Its habitually grave and de termined expression. "Come "ere, I said." repeated the man, coming down the path to the dilapi dated float. The girl, still standing, leaned on her oar and pushed the boat to Its moorings. What's wrong, dad?" she said light ly, as she made the rope fast. Her face showed apprehension of some outbreak. "I've been robbed, that's what. Look!" he exclaimed, pointing with a long, work stained finger In the direc tion of the house. "Look a-thar!" TT;h some dismay Delilah saw the high backed, old fashioned pew which they had occupied so long in Squan ton churoh leaning against the porch. "They've ripped 'em all out." contin ued her father In a snarling tone; "Higglngs boys been wheelln all of ern home this afternoon. They air go In' to hev op'ry chairs now. Pews isn't stylish an societyfled enough fur em. They got to hev op'ry chairs." "Oh, no, dad. They have decided to pat In good, com!" table hardwood pews, and they will give you one." "I don't want It! I won't hev it!" he cried excitedly. "They didn't hev trie right to rip up my pew unless I aid they could." "But they voted, dad, and Mr. Doane ays church property ain't like other property." "Well, he'll find mine Is," said the captain sourly. "If I'd 'a knowed they was goln' to rip up my pew, I'd 'a stud over It with a pistol!" Delilah was silent. She could remem ber In substance, but could not sfpeat 11 the minister had said in his comprehensive, businesslike directions about the renovation of Squanton church. Farseeing, but never vision ary, he had held before their eyes a pleasing picture of their future pros perity, when attractive surroundings would be no small help in drawing to themselves people from the outlying towns. . One-half the expense of re pairs he bore himself. It was the realization of a design of Ms predecessor, who: had failed to con fine the people ot Its wisdom and had The days, was taken to Osage City today where it will remain for a few days. Later on it will be taken to Emporia. Fireman Sellars, who has been off for some time, has returned to woik in the local pool F.nd has relieved Fireman Brickey who was running in his place, the latter returning to extra board ser vice. All the trains are running somewhat late today on account of the high wa ter and slow condition of the tracks in some places. No. 1 was an hour late. No. 2 will not arrive until about 7 this evening. The new stejl bridge over Kill creek at DeSotj, was completed this morning and is now in use.

Partenheimer of the ma chine shops has resigned his position and has left for Colorado where he will seek other employment. Cotton-Fields Within the Arctic Circle. The climax of nature's Irony in the arctics is the cotton plant. Wherever cotton blooms, declares the miner, ice is not far below. One may trudge for miles through fields of cotton. the white, silky tops swaying defiantly in the arctic breeze. The blossom is silky, dainty, illusive as the down of our own yellow dandelion on its way to seed. From June until late August the tun dra is white with the cotton plant. Unlike the cotton of the southern states, the fiber is short and soft, hav ing more of the texture of silk than of cotton. The cotton-plant will, in all probability some day, be the means of developing an Alaskan industry giv ing employment to thousands.' Today, however, the cotton fields are purely decorative a splendid sweep of im maculate bloom in a bleak, tlmberless landscape guarded by hills ever hung In veils of deepest purple. In great bouquets it is occasionally met in a miner's shack, while not a few house- : CAPTAI been forced to believe that love of the old way may be as great a hindrance to progress as slothfulness. "We air turned outen our rightful settin'," reiterated the old man. "My father's father set in that pew." "Why, dad," argued his daughter gently, "you wouldn't wear the same clothes 'your father did. Why should you mind having a new pew?" "I ain't goln' to hev no new pew, I "SHE DON'T WANT THE BOOKS," SAID TE2 CAPTAIN. tell ye, nor you nuther. Tou ain't never goln' to set your foot in that church agin!" "Oh. dad! I must! I can't mind you this time!" They had reached the house door, and Delilah flung herself down upon the old pew. "If ever you go In thar ag'in, Delily, you needn't come back here," and turn ing sharply about, he passed into the dark house and shut the door. Delilah sat for some time as he had left her. She was to be deprived then of the chief pleasure in her lonely life! It meant, too, separation from those who had been so kind and to. whom she clung with girlish adoration. It seemed to her to be the climax of all WAXTED SITUATIONS. WANTED Situation by a lady as book- Keeper, casnier or secretary; I years experience in banking; best references. Address F.'

From "A Wild-Flower Quest In the Frozen North," by Li da Rose McCabe, in the August Circle. State Journal, 10c a Week. The Story of an Instance of Obstinacy That Was Overcome by Time and Circumstance the troubled, unsatisfied experiences of her life. She thought of her mother, whose gentle face she could scarcely remember. Did she have to bear such things? In thinking of her she grew less rebellious. She 'would be gentle and patient too. To do right for what was life given? The winged needles of the pine trees over her head sifted down about her on the night breeze, and when the mists had enveloped the sand dunes and the tide had covered the marshes in a shimmering surface, ehe still sat as her father had left her. When, a few days later. th"i Rev. Howard Doane selected from his abun dant library a few interesting books as an excuse for his intended call at the cottag" of Captain Drew, he was per haps as near a deception as so conscien tious a man could be. His real purpose was to determine In what way he could best mitigate the bitterness toward him self which he knew the old man felt. Delilah met him at the door with eyes that he thought more wistful and features sharper than he remembered. "I can't take them, thank you," she said, firmly refusing the proffered books. "Father would not like It," she added with a blush. "She don't want the books," said the gruff voice of the captain behind her. "She won't be comin' ov-er to the church any more nuther." "I hope you will reconsider," began Mr. Doane. "Well. I shan't. It don't take me long to make up my mind, and when I do, it's fur good. Jestice is Jestiee." Delilah had slipped away down the path and leaned listlessly over the gate. She could not bear to hear her father's words. After what seemed a lifetime she saw Mr. Doane courte ously withdrawing In a manner which politely suggested he was tearing him self away rather than fleeing from the captain's invective and terrible accu racy of statement. At the gate he gave his hand kindly to Delilah. "We shall be sorry to lose you from Sunday school for a time." he said, but he added with a hopeful smile: "No doubt your father will think better of this by and by. If you are in need of help, come to me." The next few weeks were trying ones for the girl. Whenever she came upon a group of people talking earnestly, the conversation, which was invariably upon church matters, was immediately hushed. She felt keenly the looks which the young people cast upon her. When a kind neighbor asked, "How's your father feeling today?" she felt corscious and uncomfortable. WANTED MALE HELP.

The chil dren appropriated the silver numbers and wore them Jauntily in their hat bands or on their coat lapels for badges- The summer was nearly passed be fore the church was opened for wor ship.

(S PEW Settling' back, he stretched his long limbs toward the stove again with an added sense of comfort. The sound of laughter and greeting was hushed suddenly, and there was a perceptible backward movement near the door to admit a dripping figure. It was Delilah, with a white, scared face and long hair blown in a tangle about er head. "There's a wreck off Colfin's beach, dad!" she gasped. "They say It's the Magnolia." . Captain Drew came to .his feet In stantly, -with every man present. "How'd you know 'bout It, Delily?" he asked, as he buttoned his greatcoat. "I was on the point looking at the waves." "You've no business to go prowlin' round In seen a storm," he said, not un kindly. She drew him one side. "The minis tar is on board, dad. He was coming down from Boston." she said. under our noses, I guess, without tryin' to save 'im. Tou leave it to your fa ther." In the teeth of the gale they forced their way to the shore. Above the ter rible roar of wind and sea .they shouted to Captain Drew that the lifeboat had been manned and repeated unsuccessful attempts made to cross the channel. They told him that the efforts to shoot the line across the vessel and thus bring it into communication with the shore had been fruitless. On every face there was unspeakable dread that the helpless men would go down before their very eyes. The wreck, though it lay in that part of the channel where the current was not at its strongest, was pounding upon a reef of rocks that jutted out from the bend. A sand bar, over which the waves were rolling like snow crested hills, lay between. To reach the Mag nolia from the other side of the bay meant a Journey for ten miles by land. The vessel was pitching about like a desperate thing, showing first her keel, then the full sweep of the deck with the crew clinging as they could. The mast was broken off six or eight feet above the deck and lay over the side with a targle of broken cordage and flapping sail. Before the people crowding the head land could understand what was ; tak ing place. Captain Drew had mustered a volunteer crew, and in the lighthouse boat was making his way along the shore to cross below the bar. Through it all Delilah crouched beside a huge bowlder, with . her deep, concentrated gaze fixed upon her father's figure. . . - 1 OLD CLOTHES, shoe, hatu and over- ,Vats- POD 4 throw 'en away.

Though an expert swimmer, he was twice beaten back. In vain the men shouted to him that it was useless, worse than impos sible. He was deaf to their appeal, and just as the rope appeared on the crest of a huge swell he made a leap forward and seized It. The next In stant he was lifted on a tremendoui breaker and thrown far up the beach. He had made a sharp turn of the rope above his waist, and though shak en and bruised he recovered himself quickly and helped the men draw the captain ashore. They felt his heart, they watched his lips. They believed he was dead. But the old mariner ol Squanton had a strong hold on life. It was some weeks before Captain Drew could be removed to his own home from the farmhouse to which he had been carried and months before he rose from his bed. Meantime Mr. Doane had supplied the best medical aid. During his frequent visits to the captain their disagreement was nevei touched upon. One Sunday morning in spring, when the syringa bush near the door was all abloom and the willows had put forth a tender green, the captain, leaning heavily upon Delilah, hobbled Into the sunlight and sat down upon the old pew. "It does make a tol'ble comrtable settee, don't it. child?" he said amia bly. Delilah did not reply, but she looked at him wistfully. "Yes, my father's father used to set in it," he continued. Just then the clear bell from th church at the head of the cove rang in vitingly. The captain listened thought fully, digging his cane In the soft earth at his feet. ' "Delily, girl," he said at length, "1 guess, beln's the parson didn't hold out ag'ln me when I was hangin' to thet rope out thar in the stream, I dunno as I oughter hang out ag'in him any longer." "Oh, dad!' exclaimed Delilah glee fully. "Ye-es. 'Oh, dad' has been kinder crazy fer a spell back, but he's come to his rightful senses now, good an' strong. I guess, Delily, now If you'll put your mother's Bible 'longslde of me. 111 set here an hour or two. An you, Delily. git your bunnit on an' go over an' set in t'other pew." KITCHENER'S FATHER.
