Ho was a man who, being Juitly suspicious of tlio bank, bad withdrawn bin money, Posters mi' nounccd tho loss nnd tho offer ot a largo reward. Tho vlllago was pro foundly stirred by them. Scorching parties went up tho road stirring Its dust and groping In Its gross find tri ers for tho great prize whlc'j wns sup posed to ho lying there.

My onclo was In high spirits and thcro wcro many packnges In tho sleigh. "A merry Christmas to yo both an' may tho Lord lovo yo!" said Mr, Ilnckot ns ho bado us goodby. "Kvcry dny our thoughts will bo going np tbo Jills to your house." The bells rang merrily as wo hur ried through the swamp In tho bard mow paths. "Wo'ro goln' to move," said my auclo presently. "Wo'vo ngrcod to get out by tlio mtddlo o' May." "Unw dues that happen" I nskrd. "I settled with Qrlmslmw nnd agreed to go. It It hadn't 'a' -been for Wright nnd Baldwin wo wouldn't 'a' got n cent.

An old undo over In Vermont died throo weeks ago and left us thirty-right hundred dollars. It was old Undo Kirn Buynes o' nincsburg. Died without n chick or child. Your aunt and mo slipped down to Potsdam an' took tho stago an' went over an got tho money. It was more monoy than I over sua beforo In my llfo. Wo put It In tho hank In Potsdam to keep It out o' Grlmshnw's bands. I wouldn't trust that man as fur ns you could throw n bull by tlio Oil."

"Set right down hero nn' warm yi ayes I I'vo done nil the chores nresl" How warm nnd cnmfnrtnlilo wns the dear old room with thnso beloved fnrcs In It.

In my time, but never anything Hint I nto with a keener relish thnn tbo pudding nnd milk nnd bread nnd hut' ter nnd cheeso nnd pumpkin pie which Aunt Deel gnvo us that night. Supper over, I wiped the dishes for my aunt while uncle Prnlindy went out to feed and water tho horses. Then wp sat down In the genial warmth while I told tbo story of my llfo In "the busy town," ns they culled It What prldo nnd attention the) gave we then I My lino clothes nnd tho story of bow I hnd coma by them taxed my Inge nuity somewhat, although not Improp erly. I had to bo careful not to let them know that I had been ashamed ot tho homemade suit. They somehow till tho truth about It nnd a little tllence followed the story. Then Aunt Deel drew her chslr near me and touched my hair very gently and looked Into my faco without speaking. "Ayes I I know," sho said presently, n a kind of carcstlng tone, with touch ot sadness In It "They ain't flscd to coarse homespun stuff down there In tho Tillage They mnfts fuu 0 ye didn't thoy, Bartl" "I don't core about that," I assured them, "flie mind's the measure of thai num.' " I quoted, remembering the (ta'w the Heritor had repeated to me. "That's sound!" Uncle Peabody ex claimed with enthusiasm. Aunt Dcel took my band In hers and surveyed It thoughtfully tor a moment without speaking. "You ain't coin to have to suffer that way no moro," she said In a low tone.

"Hurrah t It's merry Christmas!" snld Undo Peabody as ho Jumped to his feet nnd began to slog of the llttlo Lord Jesus. We Joined hint whllo he stood beat ing tlmo with his right bund after tbo fashion ot a singing master. "Oft with yer boots, friend I" no ex- claimed when the stanza was finished. "Wo don't bavo to sot up and watch Ilka tho shepherds." We drow our boots on the cbatr round with hands clasped over the kucc how familiar Is tho process, and yet I haven't seen It In moro than half century I I lighted a candle and scampered upstairs la my stocking feet Uncle Pcnbody following closo nnd slnpplng my thigh ns It my paco wcro not fast enough for him. In the midst of our skylarking the cnndlo tumbled to the floor and I had to go back to tho stovo and relight It How good It seemed to bo back In tbo old room under tho shingles! Tbo heat of tho stovepipe had warmed Its hospitality. It's been kind o' loncsomo here," said Undo Peabody as ho opened tho window. "I always let tho wind come In to keep mo company It gits so worm." "Yo can't look at ycr stockln' ylt" said Aunt Dcel when I came down stairs about eight o'clock, having slept through chore tlmo. I remember It wns tho delicious aroma ot frying ham and buckwheat cakes which awoke mo; and who wouldn't rtso and shako oft tho clonk ot slumber on a bright cold winter morning with such provocation) "This nln't no common Chrls'mas I tell ye," Aunt Decl went on. "Santa Clous won't git hero short o' noon I wouldn't wonder ayes I" About cloven o'clock Uncle 111 mm and Aunt Eliza and their flvo children arrived with loud and merry greetings. Then came other aunts and uncles nnd cousins. With what noisy good cheer tbo men entered tho houso after they had put up their horses I I remember how they laid their hard, heavy hands on my head and shook It a little as ticy spoko of my "strctchln' up" or gavo mo n plnyful slnp on tbo shoulder on ancient token of good will the first form nt tho accolade, I fancy. Whnt Joyful good humor thcro wns In thoso simple men nnd women enough to temper tho woes of a city If It could hnvo been nppllcd to their relief. They stood thick nround the stovo wanning themselves and tnklng off Its griddles nnd opening Its doors and surveying It Inslclo nun out with mucli curiosity. "Now for tho Christmas tree," said Undo Peabody as he led tbo way Into our best room, where n firo was burn ing In tho old I'rnnklln grato. "Cotno on. boys an' girls," Whnt a wonderful sight wns the Christmas tree tho first wu hud hnd In our house n fine sprendlng bnlsnm loaded with presents I Undo Illrnin Jumped l"lo tho ulr snd rlnppcd his feet together nnd shouted "Hold me. somebody, or I'll grab tho hull tree n n run nwny with It." Undo Jnhes held ono foot In both hands beforo him nnd Joyfully hopped nround tho tree These relatives had brought their family gifts, somo days hefore, to be hung on Its branches. Tho thing Hint caught my cyo was a big stiver watch hanging by a long golden chain to one of the boughs. Undo Penbody took It down and held It aloft by tho chain, so that nono should miss tho sight lay ing t "From Snntn Clous for Bart I" A murmur of admiration rnn through tbo company which gathered around mo as I held the treasure In my trem bling nanus. "This Is for Bnrt, too," Undo Pen- body shouted as ho took down a bolt of soft bluo cloth and laid It In my arms, "Now there's somethln' that's Jest about ns slick as a kitten's ear, feel of It, It's for a suit o' clothes. Come all the way from Burlington. Now get-np there. You've got your loud." I moved out of the way In a hurri es no of merriment It was his one great day ot prldo aad vanity. lie did not try to conceal them. Tho other presents floated for a mo ment In this Irresistible tide ot lauga- tag goou will awl fouod their owners. I have never forgotten how Uncle Ja kes chased Aunt Minerva around the houso with a wooden sniko cunningly carved and colored. I observed there were many things on tho tree which had not been taken down when wo younger ones gathered up our wealth and repaired to Aunt Deal's room to feast our eyes upon It and compare our good fortune, The women and l-o big girls rolled up their sleeves and went to work with Aunt Deal preparing tho dinner. Tbo Stent turkey and tho chicken plo wcro utnde rendy nnd put In the oven and tho potatoes and the onions and tho winter squash wcro soon boiling In their pots on tho stovctop. Mean whllo tbo children were playing In my aunt's bedroom and Uncle lilram and Undo Jabcx wcro pulling sticks in a corner whllo tbo other men sat tipped against tho wall watching and making playful comments all savo air Undo Peabody, who was trying to touch his head, to tho floor and then straighten up w'lth tho old of tho broomstick. In tho midst ot It Aunt Decl opened the front door and old Koto, tho Silent Woman, entered. To my surprise, sho wore a decent-looking dress ot gray homespun cloth and a whlto cloud looped over her bead and cars and tied around her nock nnd a good pair ot boots. "Merry Chrls'mas I" wo all shouted. Sho smiled and nodded her head and sat down In tho chair which Undo Pea body had placed for her at tlio stovo stdo. Aunt Dcel took tho cloud off her bend while Knto drow her mittens newly knitted of tho best yarn. Then my aunt brought somo stockings and a shuwl from the tree and laid them on tho lap ot old Kate. What a silence tell upon us as wo saw tenrs coursing down tho cheeks of this lonely old woMhn of tho countryside tears of Joy, doubtless, for Clod knows how long It had been since tho poor, nbandoned soul had seen a merry Christmas and shared Its kindness. I did not fall to obscrvo how clean her faco and hands looked) Sho wns greatly changed. Sho took ray band as I went to her side and tenderly caressed It A gcu tier smtlo came to hor faco thnn ever I had seen upon It. Tho old stern look returned for u moment as sho held ono linger aloft In a gesturo which only I nnd my Aunt Dcel understood. Wo know it signalized n peril and a mys tcry. That I should hnvo to meet It semewhero up tho hidden pathway, I had no doubt whatever. "Dlnnor's rendy I" exclaimed tho cheerful voice of Aunt Decl. Then what a stirring of ehnlrs and feet as we sat down nt tho tnble. Old "From 8snta Clsus for Osrtl" Kate sat by tho eldo of my mint and w wero all surprised at her good mutt rers. Wo Jested and laughed and drank cider nnd rovlewcd tho year's history nnd uto as only thoy may cnt who havo big bones and muscles nnd tho vitality ot oxen. I never tnste tho flavor of sngo nnd currant Jelly or hear a hearty laugh without thinking ot thoso holi day dinners In tho old log houso on Ilnttlcrnad. That Christmas brought mo nothing better than thoso words, tho memory of which Is ono of tho tnlloit towers In tlmt long nvenuo of my pust down which I hnvo been looking theso many days. About all you can do for a boy. north whllo. Is to give him aoiuethlug good to rcmomber. Tho dny hnd turned dark. Tho tem piraturo nnd risen nnd tho air was dnnk nnd chilly. The men began to Hitch up their horses. So, ono by one, the slelghloads left us with cheery good-bys nnd a grind ing of runners and a Jingling of bells. When the last had gone Undo Pea body nnd I went Into tho house. Amt Deel snt by tbo stove, old Knto by tho window looking out at the fulling dusk. now still tbo houso seemed I "There's ono thing I forgot" I said as I proudly took out of my wallet the six one-dollar bills which I hnd earned by working Saturdays and banded three of them to my aunt and three to my uncle, saying "That Is my Christmas present to you. i earned It myself." I remember so well their astonish ment and the trembling of their hands ana the look of their faces. "it's grand ayes " Aunt Deel said In a low tone. Sho roso In a moment and beckoned to me and my uncle. Wo followed her through the open door to the other room. "I'll tell ye what rd do," she whis pered. "Vi give 'ma to V Kate- ayes I She's goln' to stay with us tMI tomorrow." "Good Idee I" sftld Uncle Peabody. So I took the money out of their hand and went la and gave It to the Silent Woman. "That's your present from me," I said. How can I forget how sho held my arm against her with that loving, fa miliar, rocking motion ot a woman who la soothing a baby at ber breast and kissed my coat slcevo Sho re leased my arm and, turning to the win dow, leaned hor head upon Its sill nnd shook with sobs. Tho dusk hnd thick ened. As I returned to my sent by the stovo I could dimly sco her form against the light of the window. We sat In silence for n llttl whllo. Then Undo Peabody roo and got a candle and lighted It at the hearth. I held tho lantern whllo Undo Pea body fed the sheep and the two cows and milked a slight cbato these win- let days. "You and I aro to go off to bed purty early," ho said ns we wero going back to tho houso. "Yer Aunt Deel wants to see Koto alono and git ber to talk It she can. "I dunno but shell swing bock Into this world og'ln," said Undo Peabody when wo had gono up to our llttlo room. "I guess all sho needs Is to bo treated llko a human beln'. Ycr Aunt Dcel an' I couldn't git over thlnkln' o' what sho done for you that night In tho ol' barn. So I took somo o' ycr aunt's good clothes to her an' a pair o' boots an' asked her to como to Chrls'mas. Sho lives In a llttlo room over tho blacksmith shop down to But Urflcld's mill. I told her I'd cotue nftcr her with tho cutter but she shook ber head, I knew sho'd rathor walk." Ho wns yawning as be spoko and soon wo wero both asleep under Uit shingles, CHAPTER XII. The Thing and Other Things. I returned to Mr. Huckct's houst Into In tho afternoon ot Now Year's day. Tho schoolmaster was lying on s big loungo In a corner ot their front room with the children nbout him. Thi dusk was falling. "Welcome, my laddie buckl" he ex claimed as I entered.

"An, my lad there's the best thiol I have seen ye do got up an' comi back with no mad In yc," he said as hi gavo mo his hand.

SOME GIVE PANNIER EFFECT Startllnc Novelties, It Is Sure, Will Figure In the downs for Autumn, but Long-Wlted Bodice Will Be mtslned. Tho most striking feature of tho autumn suits and gowns Is tho In crenslng fullness nt tho top ot tho skirts. Thu wnys In which tho great French dressmakers ncbleve this full ness nro Interesting. Ono point on which '.nost of them ngrea Is tlmt thn fullness must bo mnsscjl across the hips, leaving both front and tmck perfectly flat Bulloz, however, hns ilepnrted from this by Introducing fullness ncrnss tlio front of his new skirls, thereby differ ing from tlio other designers.

This Is decid edly new nnd unusunl on n suit skirt. Thn Jacket which nccompunles It flares from the wnlst, giving such full ness about tho hips tlmt It nppronches the point of clumsiness. Hut al though both skirt nnd ront are so very full nt the hips tho skirt still remnlns narrow nt tbo hem. Mine. Jenny does something novel In tho way ot achieving hip fullness by mnkmg n skirt of very slim out line nnd applying to It rolled plaits which stund out over tho hips. To mnko them even moro pronounced sho peds theso rolls, which swing looso from tho belt and disappear grndunlly Into tho narrowing fullness of tho skirt lower down.
