He walked back toward the shack. "I'll give it to 'Hub' la the morning," he thought, but after he had tone to bed he got to turning it over In his mind,-with the result that eari) the next day he hiked to Sheffield. Entering the railroad station, which also served as a telegraph office, he busied himself with a yellow blank. After spoiling two blanks he handed one to the operator. The message he had written was adiressed to Jean Penbrook, at a certain address in St Paul, and it said: "Will yon marry me In May? Must know before new year starts. Don't inswer if you refuse. Hubert." "I'm a meddler as well as a forger," thought A1 as he retraced his steps toward camp after loading up with tobacco. Shortly after the engineers had finished supper a knock sounded on the loor and when Hubert opened it a man flourished a telegram in hlB face. Hubert signed for it, opened it and read while A1 got very busy with the Tsquares and the compass and the triangles. Not a word was said about the telegram during the entire evening. Both men busied themselves with their 1 rafting for an hour or two, then got nut books and read, waiting for the new year to dawn. The only timepiece In the shack was an alarm clock, and this had been set to ring out the old year. ' Shortly before the hour approached, Hubert seated himself at bis desk and became active with writing materials. A1 kept one of his eyes on his book and chuckled softly while the other surreptitiously watched Hubert Presently the clock jangled the midnight hour. "Happy New Tear, Hub," called AI. "How are you starting It?" Hubprt continued scratching with the pen. "None of your confounded business!" he growled, without looking np. Al laughed aloud. "I'll hand you that five tomorrow," announced Hubert, as he started on the eleventh page. "Never again," mimicked AL EAST SIDE II NEWS 1 Bast filrls fifthAAlft. Superintendent W. A. Hustead announces that the East Side schools iiave begun work in a splendid manner after the short holiday vacation. The attendance is almost normal and the pupils in the various grades are doing excellent work. It is the intention of the faculty to make up as much of the time lost while the flu ban was on as possible. This week's work will be accounted as so much of the last time. Beginning next Saturday school will be held for several succeeding Saturdays to further help in making up the full time. Every effort will be made by the superintendent and teachers to accomplish just as much work and make it just as efficient aB it would have been working on full time. A hearty cooperation of the patrons of the schools would mean much to the accomplishment of this aim. Watch Night Parties.
