Inside a year Torn Clark was hr all odds the most popular man In the mills, and he was by far the cleverest and quickest workman on his floor. He advanced rapidly, and he well earned every advance. Old Joe (tarr grew to tegard him almost as a son. Before that first year was out, too, Joe Carr had ntill other reasons for bring lond of his young protege. One noon Carr's daughter.

Something seomed to tug thrlll- Ingly nt Tom Clsrk’s hitherto Im mune hrart. Completely to his own surprise, he found that he had fall rn victim to that mystically poetic malady known a "love st first sight " Edna Carr, too. felt an unaccount able stirring at her heartstrings at this first meeting with the man of whom he had heard ao much from father Already, from heart’'g of Tom’s story, she hid Invested young Clark withal! the attributes of a hero of romance. Now. his good looks, his magnetic personality and his oddly brilliant smile, combined with his very evident admlraUon of herself to finish the capture of her girlish heart.

Both Tom and Edna were terribly In earnest. With each It was a first love, as well as love at first eight. Tom did not actually propose, be cause lie was not yot earning enough money to add the expense of a wife's support to that of a sla ter and a mother.

But the directors wen out for results, not pertonal up rightness, so Graham was employ ed At first glance, Tom Clark dlslik ed the new superinterdent.

As he said this Buster bear sat and stared into the laughing Brook with wrinkled brows. He had set out that morning to get fish for breakfast, and because he had set his heart on fish nothing else would do. You know, Buster Bear is sometimes what is called pigheaded—that Is. be starts to do a thing, and no matter what hap pens he persists in trying to do It. He had started out for Ash that morning, and fish he would have or else go hungry. Now, everybody knows that it Is of no use to try to drink from an empty pall, and every fisherman knows that It Is of no use to fish when the flah have gone away from their favorite places. Buater Bear knew that for some un known reason there were no trout In the little shallow pools where he does hla fishing Os course, he didn’t know this when he Htartcd out that morning, but it didn't take him a great while to find It out. Not so much eb a glimpse of a fln or tall had Buster had, and he had fol lowed the laughing Brook almost to the place where it leaves the Green Forest on Its way to the Smil ing Pool in the Green Meadows. And Just because he couldn’t have fish Buater wanted fish more than anything else In the world. People are that way sometimes. So Buster persisted in wandering along the laughing Brook, hoping that luck would turn. Fishermen, you know, are great believers In luck, and Buster is like the rest. That Is why he said that foolish little verse at the beginning of this story. Os course, he knew It was all foolish ness to turn around three times and to cross hla toes, and when he did these things he looked around first to make sure that no one would see him. And, of course, his luck didn’t change. You see. there Isn’t any such thing as that kind of luck. No matter what happens, there Is a cause, a reason for It. The reason Buster Bear saw no fish that tine morning was that there were no fish (p. j CROWS WITH DETROIT ” ‘ The First Fall Coats, Stunning Bolivias, Are Ready in the Fashion Salons These Bolivia coats give promise of being favorites for early fall wear and women have taken to them delightedly.

They had all gone down to the Smiling Pool because the water there was deeper and cooler than In the laughing Brook. You see, the weather had been so hot for so long that the Laughing Brook was grow ing smairiV and smaller, and so the flah had moved down to the Smil ing Pool for comfort and safety. If Buster had used his common sense ho would have known this and given up all thought of fish. At last he aat down in a little open place close by the Laughing Brook and not far from where Plunger the Flah Hawk had built hla nest. Buster sat down to rest and cool off. He bad not bean there long when he heard volcea, harsh, screaming voices. They came from high up In the air. Buater tipped his head hack and looked up. Thera he saw Plunger the Pish. Hawk and King Eagle, and they were quarrel ing. Plunger waa dodging thla way and that way, now up, now down, now to this side and now to thsu And clutched In Plunger's claws* as a great, big. fat flah.
