"My dear, I'm glad I saw you," he
repeated. "How's your mother?"
No reply. She only clung to the arm
on which she leaned and was hasten

Upon one occasion in northern Mich

with a veteran timber cruiser, a man
who knew everything about the rough
bush life, says a writer in World's
Work, in time we reached a bend in
the stream where a lot of small logs
had jammed during the spring freshet.
My comrade unconcernedly ventured
upon the logs, and before I could fol

upon a loose one and instantly disap

seize the hand occupied very few sec

him up through the narrow space
through which he had slipped. To set
a foot upon the log either side the open

only hope. For seconds 1 dung to the
