HUMAN IIAKHY was hi irn on New Venr's diiy, and (Iceinetl the fiut a lit'Cltled inlsftirtuiie. There was one fenture In which his father nsilnlii.et system and this Involved discipline. "A strict ilistiplliiHrliin," lu would hi m si to his tiflh hnrs. 'That's me," and he ItHiked It find acted It out until Norimin funded lie hnd heen plncfd In the world simply to lievonie the hutt nnd vlotltn of rlid rules. When Norman's tenth tiirthdny waa only eU'ht hours illMtniit. his futlier irnve the nnlcr, sternly spoken : "You will he In the house for the night at seven o'clock." and Norman lnnel In a martyrilke way, envying his hoy frii'inls who had mapped out a Joyous New Venr's eve program of skating, hill slitllng. and Ilk boyish pranks. He wiHiili-red what was coming, hut his father simply viewed him npeou Inlively and sent hi in to hetl at tha uniihI time. He was awakened to find his father roughly pulling at his arm. "lift up. NnrniHii. and mine down to the kitchen." said Joel Hardy; you needn't dress. Norman arose, ruhhed his eyes, and ' followed bis father downstairs. There was a light on the It the house clock. Nnrniiiii noticed that It told the time as ten min utes lo twelve. All was still and solemn eicept it a monotonous tick, and outside an oc casional echo of shooting, an nouncing Impa tient celebrants already prepared to herald In tb new year. "My boy," apoke bla father after a moment of ominous deliberation, "when I was a lad of ten, my father taught me a lesson that baa left Its Impress on my whole llf In a salu tary way. I'pua the tick of midnight , Just preceding my birthday he always j called me down to th kitchen aud , gave me a good sound strapping. It i hurt him more than It did nie, he used i to say. but the reminder would be ever present with me. Until I was twenty-one, regularly, upon each birth day the strap played Its part and I think It did a good deal toward teaching me that I had a maater and lu making m a better man. I hav concluded to adopt that feature with my system. You'r a pretty good boy. but ror rear you might kick over th traces I'm going to bulk th system until you ar of age. Now, then, tak your punishment Ilk a man." I joei naruy prouurea a snort, tnirs plec of tanned cowhld and Norman winced, but did not cry out during the miiiiue castlgatlon. It was Ave yean later, and with th usual routine lat lu the afternoon Joel Hardy re minded Norman of th pending mid night event. Ill eyes bulged snd his fso betrayed overwhelming srosse nient as Normao stood up before him, tall, well knit stripling, almost oiea aclog In his bearing as ha said: "rtbr. there will b ao trapping N V Y VI 7 Ji I The New Year j ITH th whirling and drifting of snows Cemei breathless th wild New Year) While bitter north wind blow, O'er th fields that lie stark and drear.

I'm going to siH'iid this New Year's eve with the crowd, ami I'll be borne to break fast" "If you don't report here by ten o'clock I'll send the town marshal ufter you," pronounced bla father, with lire In bis ey Norman marched out of the bouse, hung around downtown until eight o'clock, and then repaired to the Hgreed-on rendezvous of th crowd, an old buggy abed attaclied to a great barn owned by Farmer Logan. He felt uneasy, atuhhorn and nettled. Ke cent ly be had been dared by bis com panions to amok a cigarette. He bad met the dar and now, wltb two of thetu In his pocket, be lit one. and. In sheer rebellion against hla father's system, waa about to puff out hla re sentment when the signal cry of bis I'omrade echoed forth. Careleaaly throwing th lighted cigarette Into a corner of the abed, he bounded out sud for over an hour forgot all save Hi excitement of th moment. Th unruly coterie rolled a giant snowball and let It slide down the hill leading to the town common ; they got up into the town hall tower and rang its bell. In the midst of setting loose a drov uf cattle from a live stock enclosure they wer attracted by th dash and rush of th village fir cart, making ) for a vivid, spreading glare. "Why, It'a Farmer Logan's place I" shouted a chorus of excited voices, snd .Norman Hardy's heart stood still. II recalled th cigarette and th Uttered woodshed. H stood dumb aud stsrad. Th flames completely en gulfed th great frsai barn. Norman lunk off alone by himself, oppressed with an appalling sens of guilt. Hi emotions wer doubly Intensified when he heard some one say : "Logan thinks It rss set abiai. Arson. pity ib firebug If bS caught. t'a straight 14 years In ths lieultentlary." "It will rulo Ixtgan, the aay," spots m another. "The barn was stored with gruln and machinery and the Insur ance ran out last week." Norman was crushed with a sense of his culpability. He felt like flying from hmiif, town and all the -eo-ple he had ever known. He skulked behind a hedge as a group of girls came along. They were discussing the fire so excitedly that they paid no attention to a lone member of their irroup trailing on behind them. Nor man noticed her, however. She was Milly Iianiels. He startled her by stepping directly In her path. "Just linger for a moment, will you, Milly?" he sHke under high agita tion, "or I'll walk with you a bit. I'm In terrible tmuhle, and I'm going to leave town for good," and Norman re cited the entire story of the evening. "There's only one way out, don't you see It. Milly r' he said. "I don't dare to face Fanner Logan ; I'm going away to make something of myself, aud the day I have got Hie money to make It square with Mr. Logan I'm coming back. And Milly, dear, you have been my truest friend aud bave always stood by me. Will you try to think of me while I'm gone, will you will you wait for me? For I shall never love anybody but you." Five years went by. Not a word had been heard from the truant son. Joel Hardy had forbidden even the mention of bis name In the home. Mrs. Hardy, half heartbroken, repined In silence. Milly Iunlels became an orphan, and when Mrs. Hardy needed a nurse and then a companion. It came about that she found a per manent home with the mother of the man she loved. She and Mrs. Hardy, with the tyrant father, all unaware of It, cherished a mut ual memory of the absent youth and took comfort In watching and hoping for bis re turn. It waa a few minutes after midnight, five years to a day since Norman Hardy had gone forth Into the world to aeek his fortune. Milly had pleaded to sit up and watch the old year out and the new year In. All three of the family, though In different ways, were thinking of die boy who had run away from home. The bells had Just finished a resonant chime when the knob of the outside door turned. There steped Into the room a bronzed, stalwart young man, at a alght of whom Joel Hardy gasped Incredu lously, hla wife uttered a joyous scream, and Milly stood breathless and fluttering. "I waited till I waa sure the final hour of discipline and the atrap was past and gone," spoke Norman Hardy. "Mother," a warm embrace. "Father," and a sturdy hand reached out. "Milly," and the young girl swayed to aud fro and would hav fallen had not Norman caught her. - "I said 1 wouliin t come bark till 1 could pay tor the damage I did to good old Farmer Logan," continued Norman. "I'v kept my word, I hear yon are struggling with a two-thou- ssnd - dollar mortgage, father; I raa pay It off and loan you aa much mors If you need It. Milly. dear, am I wel- comer nav com to keep my promise true." Joel Hardy left the room. II re turned with th strap that had been so familiar to his son. Taking out his porketkntfe. the old mstt proceeded to cut the strsp to pieces snd flung them Into th blailng grata. "Tou'v cheated me out of several years, my son," h observed, "but I forglv you. It's enough to know that you ar bark horn safe and sound this blessed New T ear's daI" Neuj gear's x t Lore I KW YKAIl'S night quiet and ienr indicates a prosperous) year. On New Year' eve while) the clock is striking 12 re fient three times: "timid St. ibk' Anne, good St. Anne, send me a man as fast as you can," and you will been inec within the year. Spend on New Year, spend all tha vear. The Chinese say that If a man sits up fnr ten years In successlnn and sees the new year come in he will iave a Intig life. It Is unlucky to refuse a be-rgnr any- filing mi New Year's day, or to refuse) i request of any kind. It is lucky to rise early on New Vfar's inortiltii;. If the first carol sinter who comes to Hie ilisir on New Year's morning la hrniik'lit In at the front iIist. taken all thrniiuh the house, and let out at (he hnrk door. It will bring luck to the house for a yenr. When the wind blows on New Year's night, it la a sign of pestilence. If your first mller on New Year' iny is a male, you will have good luck ninl many friends; If a female, bad luck nnd few frlt-nds. The Chinese think New Y'ear's day Is the luckiest of the year. If you wash clothes on New Tear's day. You'll be sure to wash a friend away. Turn your pillow at midnight of the 81st of iH-cemher and you will dream of the one you are to marry. It tirlnirs good luck to plnce a pleca of money on the window on New Year's eve. If the first mnn you speak to on New Year's morning has his hand In his pockets, you will have a hard time get ting what money you want during tho yenr. It Is an old Dutch superstition that If you want to marry the girl you love, your voice must be the first one she hears and your face the first she sees on New Year's morning. Superstitious folk consider It Impor tant to notice whom you meet the first thing on New Year's day. If It Is a " man, you v.ill have good luck, if a woman, bad luck ; if a priest, you will die wlrtiln a year; If a policeman, you will have litigation. The first person of the opposite sex you meet on New Year's day will bear the Christian name of your future partner. If ice melts on January 1 It will freeze on April 1. Feed the birds well on New Year's morning by placing a sheaf of wheat or barley or some bread outside your house, then arood luck will attend vnn. and good crops and prosperity come to you during the whole year. On New Year's eve take your hymn book to your bedroom, blow out the lamp, open your book, and mark a hymn (In the dark), put It under your pillow, and sleep on It Next morning read the hymn, and It will Indicate the events of the year. It Is unlucky to have clothes hang ing on the line when the New Year It born. - Cook cabbage on New Tear's I and you will bave good luck all . I year. J l-eeorated apples stuck on three skewers are exchanged for luck on New Year'a day In Great Britain. Burn all the visiting cards that have been r eived throughout the year on January 1. If you keep them from year lo year you will have bad luck. If you have not provided yourself with a calendar before the New Tear comes In you will he behind hand Id ail your undertakings during the year. In Japan oranges are hung up on New Year's day as a charm to insure the long life of the family.
