Bat I ain't crazy ?.md m-vt i The woman gave a harsh laugh i bat i e tea tod a gimps? of a past life of Buffering, disappointment and prim determination that made Hettj Btop and think. The lolloaing Sunday when Wil ?on iSeymoar cane down fn-m IVmhioke to neo her she spoke to him at an oppoittiue moit.int abo Matthew.

II- wasu'i w?.ith ?10, and the company wasn't responsible lor his death.' ?But Aunt .i/,.tty says tli 11 it war.'Hetty answered, nlsblag to presen I her aunt'? ei'le ot the qoes Um, 'and 1' I believe her qolekei tii-in i woa ?1 the oompaoi.' ?Ol com s ? !

Yiu know Aunt Matty lias stici'g pie?udicts. and a will that can't be broken.' ?I should think ao,' Wilson an? swer??! light! ?The trouble Julie's given the road would Indicate that. Yon know all tbe engineers have special orders *hen passing her house?' ?No, I hadn't henni of that," Hetty replied quickly. Mie had lived with Aunt Matty only a v?-ar ami a half, and her knowledge of the past history of the place whs only vague. 1.' e I,' Wilson refilled, 'she acted ?o queerly a lew j eats ago that t be company decided to prosecute ber fur Interfering witb travel. Then t! iv decided thut she was qticci- - crazy, it says in the report?and tbal they wouldn't do BBtbing Hit leas absolutely necessary. Her ac? tions ware annoy fng, but harmless. She would gresie ihe tracks and Stop tha IraiOS at night with ali suits of signals. Finally orders were lasoed noi to pay any atten? tion to her signals, and for every engineer to ?ami the track tliorouh lv when they passe?! her house to start up the grade towaid Pem? broke, That kind of got tbe best of 1er, and s'ie soon stopped bothering us. vVe haye not had any trouble with her for a lone time now. I believe she sends in aiiaiimal claim for damages for ber boree, witb interest charged to date. But that Is all.' Hetty's cheeks were growing? more crimson as she listened to this story. Si)?? felt that there must be some justification for her aunt's actions, ami the slight sense ol mortification she experienced was offset by oompaaslon. ?1 ??or nui.ty must have ha?l a aood de.il of provocation to make her act like that,' she paid slowly. ?I think the railroad ought to pay Ii- r sometbiog for Ibe horse.' >he stopped in her walk and faced in r lover. Wilson looked a little puzzled at the serious ex? pression of her face. *>\ ell, my dear, I wisb the com? pany would," lie replied, not Viiow iti?,' what else to s iy. ?Then why don't ??ti try?tD get hem ?to use your iBnaenceT' 'I?

'Ami make a fool of myself?and : rob.ibly be [dismissed tor my pains ' 'That wouldn't matter if von did it in a righteous cause,' Hetty coutiuned, 113 lug bad to bold !i?*i ground. ?But, mp dear, the thing is fo in reason able,' be began in a plead mg voice. '1 would do anything tor von-' ?Then do this,' Interrupted Hetty. '.S'uppose 1 should say that I WOO Id noi, or could not, marry ton until Aunty got some damages for bei n I-?.' Il?* looked at her to see II she were serions; butusto trace of ;? a smile broke out upon her lips he answered gravelj: 'I should say. then, we would never marry.' A slijit Ibodder made her ttcin? b'e, but she answered bravely: 'Well, that is practically whnt aunty BSJS, and you know I eau nevermarrj without her consent. Sin- is so prejudiced and set In her ways that?' 'Ves, It know, but she hasn'i con e between us. 1 ?.bad marry?' But Hetty stepped back, and avoided his grasp. 'Not until you have made the itloit to win ine,' she said. ?Why,'?Hetty, will .ion let a ?lead borse separate Ohf be asked earn? estly. 'Old Matthew wasn't worth it. I'll psy the damages tajeelf it t w il salta'*, your aunt. 'Hut ll wouldn't stiisty me. 1 bave made np my mind that tin* railroad shall be made to pay dam ?gee loi -l/itlhew, ami If JOS won't help me I'd 1)0 tl alone. Until then ?ve won't talk anj thing mme abuul iiiairy ing.' A few hours In 1er Wilson bit it-i in 1 itt*t obstluats mood, and retuinitl to his duties in a I?.?? ?vil? ? '1 and ]ieijili-xeil s'ato t.l .nit 'What is He mailer nnh licit' lie asked himself.

On Monday, alter bis pecu? liar parting with Hetty it rained inosaaeutly, ami as his train pasa? il tin* cottage at night be could bare? ly make out the (?tee and llgure at the window through the sheets of mist. It rained all day Jfondej and Tursdaj, the water pouring down in sbeets Tbeoountry was flooiieii, ami strong rlvnlets lormi ?i on the mountain snles, rushed down into lie falleys with the violence of tornadoes? At sun? down on Tue-ilay the clouds broke away? and the we landscape se ceived a short glimpse ol tbe setting sun. After the stonn the country i inked titon? attractive than ever. Hetty stepped out upon the |iorcb and viewed the glorious bight with pleasure. ?Oh, annty, come ont a min?le, und enjoy this sight,' she called. The air 18 so iclreshmg ami Invig? orating, I leel just like a romp.' Tf It's cleareil off lor good, I be* lieve IM go to Pembroke after sup? per and get some ibiugS,' Aunt Matty repieil, shading her ?yes (rom the light of the sou. ?We aiu'i got much tea nor salt." ?I'll go with yen, then.' Hetty su swered quickly. "I'll riijoj ti e walk.' 'Ye.*, it will do both of us 8 Sight of go? d ' It was 8 o'clock before they started down the- railroad track. Pembroke was two m lies aWBy,bol neither miuded a four-mile walk. Hetty thought ot Wilson, and wondered if be would miss 11 ; lamtliar face at the window.

Ob, aun? ty, the bibige is washed awayT The girl uttered '.ins?* words m a voice that expressed all the honor of the situation. 'Nonsense, Hetty; I Bee I he budge,' replied Aunt Malt?. ?No, no, come back; il'.s gone,' Hetty Mied, aa her aunt persisted in advanoiBg. ?Well, I'd Bud'out; I c.m't s??'? well as you, maybe.* Sin* got down ?<ti her banda and kcees, end crawled out upon the ties.

'Then it', oar duty to urd? i'ioviilencfc'a work,' Hetty replied, hostly. Aunt Matty stood quiet ami un mover?; she neither lep'ied not took notice of her niece. She was lost m her own thoughts.

There vraa nothing rerj v. iv definite in bl r mind. She simplv knew that Hit* tiaiu would soon come from that direction, and ibat sbe must intercept it. foaal '?'y she had some ragnn ? otlon ??i reaching Aunt Matty's cottage and see u i i il g a torch m time to signal tin- tram before it started up the grada, However that may be, sbe barely found herself within rive hundred yards of ibe house, with the light shining in the window as sin- had left it, when the shrill whistle ol the spproacbfnf espies* stattled the echoes of the qoiel valley.
