They washed the wound and 'dressed It/ but in splte.of all their efforts it 'was three months before he was able to go home. , /, So. much had:.the.,.poor. woman, done to save the hunter's, life that he never forgot her and, live years, later when ho closed his f death.. ho left; a will giving her all he, possessed, which amounted to half a ; million , dollars. Thus the' widow* was able to Improve her' land and sell It at a good "figured Thereby showing that one kind act be gets another. If Fairies Dwelt in 1910 ROSA MARKUS If fairies dwelt In nineteen ten And.wtßhea really came true, thiui I'd wish for love In every heart, For men from evil to keep apart, For Justice done In every deed, For help to all who are in need, . For every cry of hunger, stilled, . For every germ of envy killed, For fires <to burn when 'lt -is cold, For falsehoods never to be told, For smiles to light up. each sad face, Poverty unknown in every case, For Joy, happiness every whero; For not the shadow of a care; Oh, all this, would I wish for then, If fairies dwelt in nineteen ten.

I' was not there more than IB minutes before I heard a rustling in the brush, and looking spied the largest coyote I over saw in my life.
