He hired a man lo run the farm early In May, ami went to ftlverdale. an said, with a happy, hopeful heart. Young Tnseotl acted like a true friend, and Viola welcomed him with apparent pleasure Norman secured a room at the village hotel Kvory afternoon there was tennis, or a pic nlc or Homo society function at the TsHfOtl home, where Norman waa re eelved iih an honored guest Viola had her girl cousins vimilng her and thev were a sociable, Jolly group. Then that unfortunate afternoon Norman was passing the open win dow of a room In whh h Viola and some of her friends were gathered He heard his name spoken before he reached (he window He heard, us he passed It, those fateful words I would not marry that country lout. If he were the last man In the world ? ” What inference could tie divine ex cept the one that he had been under discussion, ami that Viola had spoken her mind. Stunned, crushed, humili ated, he hastened to tin* hotel With in an hour he was fleeing from itlver dale as though it held a pestilence He left no particular word for Viola t or for her brother Then, in solituue, lone.mess and ( gloom, Norman settled down to the hardest kind of work on his little farm. He never went to ftlverdale, he made no inquiries concerning tils former friends, the clock of bis life seemed to have stopped for him, and he lost his nerve and ambition. To make mutters worse, the crops were a complete failure that year. What produce Norman took to Plain- Hold to noil barely paid bis debts. Winter came on. ami he was not able to put In the uaual annual supply of coal. It wan a harsh. shivery season, full of privation and discomfort. Many a night ho nought rest early to aava the little heap of curdwood he had in store. Then came a two weeka’ spell of twenty below aero weather. To keep from positive suffering, Norman had to usu up hla little stock of hard wood. He began to gather up loose hoards and chips around the place, lie be came alarmed for his team, and bat tened them Into the little atablo, tear ing down a shed to repair the barn. A part of the refuse of the shed and Its boards sudleed (or quite a fuel sup ply for the rude fireplace In the kitch en of the cabin. There had been a heavy fall of snow, then It had cleared off bitterly cold. Seated shivering by the almost empty fireplace, Norman half decided to drive with his team to IMuinfleid and put up at the hotel there till spring. The day had opened clear and bright, but towards noon the snow had be gun. Now It was a howling, blinding tempest. With the exception of a few blta of wood (he fuel supply was abso lutuly exhausted. “What was that?” cried Norman sud denly, and sprung to his feet, for above the wailings of the wind a clear, sharp cry hud echoed forth In the grasp of the tempest outside. Dimly he made out a shadowy mass In black contrast where the road had been, lie at niggled through the snow to discover a horse attached to a sleigh, lying Inert where It hud fallen. On the seat was (lift form of a man. evidently overcome by the Intense cold. Staggering towards him was a woman, apparently attracted by the lights In the cabin, and screaming for help. It was Viola Ti&scolt! She fell half fainting into his arms. He bore her into the cabin, placed her on the big settee near (he fireplace, dashed forth again, discovered (hut the horse was dead, and then bore In his arms Into (he eahlli (he overcome brother of the girl he loved. Nornnin at once comprehended (hat the TascoMs had started across coun try that morning lor I'laliiMeld, to he overtaken by tin* storm. The brother lay (inconscioiiH. Viola was half sen slide of her strange sinroundings. Meat! That was the essential of the hour. Recklessly, Norman piled on the last splinter or wood. Then ho rushed to a corner where a hatchet lay He glared ahonl him desperately. There stood the old desk his father had left him. (’rash! Into Its timbers (he keen blade sank. It was soon a wreck Soon, too, the fireplace hlu/.ed. Viola sat up and rubbed her eyes. She (old of their folly In trying to cross the bleak prairie.

Why hud ho deserted them? lls (old her of those fateful overheard worda at the window, and she, In blank consternation, (old him that what ho listened to was part of an amateur play she was rehearsing with her cousins Then-then might hn hope she would regard the words tie had come to speak to her in the long ago? Ah. love was mightier than (ho storm and poverty, and there their troth was plighted.
