UTH BELMOPE ENDIGÖIT COPYRIGHT - 191 e - BY" DODD, MEAD anx> COMPANY. "k W CHAPTER XIV—Continued. "Pick him up and put him on the sled here, boys," Mr. Stage said. "I'll carry Hannah's Car'lyn myself." The party, including the excited Prince, got back to the docks without losing any time and without further accident. Still the chapel bell was ringing and somebody said : "We'd have been up a stump for knowing the direction if it hadn't been for that bell." "Me, too," muttered Chet Gormley. "That's what kep' me goin', folks— the chapel bell. It just seemed to be callin' me home." Joseph Stagg, carried his niece up to Mrs. Gonnley's little house, while one of the men helped Chet along to the same destination. The seamstress met them at the door, wildly excited. "And what do you think?" she cried. "They took Mandy Pariow home in Tim's hack. She was just done up, they tell me, pullin' that chapel bell. Did you ever hear of such a silly crit ter—just because she couldn't find the sexton I" "Hum I yen and I both seem to be mistaken about what constitutes silli ness, Mrs. Gormley," grumbled the hardware dealer. "I was for calling your Chet silly, till I learned whnt he'd done. And you'd better not call Miss Mandy silly. The sound of the chapel bell gave us ail our bearings. Both of 'em, Chet and Miss Manoy, did their best" Carolyn May was taken home In Tim's hack, too. To her surprise, Tim was ordered to stop at the Pariow house and go in to ask how Miss Amanda was. By this time the story of her pulling of the chapel bell rope was all over Sunrise Cove and the back driver was naturally as curious as anybody. So be willingly went into the Pariow cot tage, bringing back word that she was resting comfortably, Doctor Nugent having just left her. "An 1 she's one brave gal," declared Tim. "Pitcher of George Washington! pollin' that bell rope ain't* no baby'a job." Carolyn May did not altogether un derstand what Miss Amanda had done, but she was greatly pleased that Uncle Joe had so plainly displayed his interest in the carpenter's daughter. The next morning Carolyn May seemed to he in good condition. In deed, she was the only individual vi tally Interested in the adventure who did not pay for the exposure. Even Prince had barked his legs being hauled out on the ice. Uncle Joe had caught a bad cold in his head and suf fered from it for some time. Miss Amanda remained in bed for several days. But It was poor Chet Gormley who paid the dearest price for par ticipation in the exciting incident. Doc tor Nugent had hard work fighting off pneumonia. Mr. Stagg surprised himself by the interest he took In CheL He closed his store twice each day to call at the Widow Gormley's house. Mr. Stagg found himself talking with Chet more than he ever hud before. The boy was lonely and the man found a spark of interest in his heart for him that he had never previously discov ered. He began to probe into his young employee's thoughts, to learn something of his outlook on life; per haps, even, he got 6omc Inkling of Chet's ambition. That week the ice went entirely out of the cove. Spring was at hand, with its muddy roads, blue skies, sweeter airs, soft rains and a general revivifying feeling. Aunty Kose declared that Carolyn May began at once to "perk up." Per haps the cold, long winter had been hard for the child to bear. One day the little girl had a more than ordinarily hurd school tusk to perform. Everything did not come easy to Carolyn May, "by any manner of means,'' as Aunty Rose would have said. Composition writing was her bane and Miss Minnie hud instructed Carolyn May's class to bring In a writ ten exercise the next morning. The little girl wandered over to the church yard with her slute aTid pencil—and Prince, of course—to try to achieve the composition. The windows of the minister's study overlooked this spot and he was sit ting at his desk while Carolyn May was laboriously writing the words on her slate (having learned to use a slate), which she expected later to copy into her composition book. The Rev. Afton Drlggs watched her puzzled fuce and laboring fingers for some momenta before calling out of his window to her. Several sheets of sermon paper lay before him on the desk and perhaps he was huvlng al most as hard a time putting on the paper what he desired to say as Car olyn May was having with her writ ing. Finally, he came to the wtndow and spoke to lier. "Carolyn May," he said, "what are you writing?" "Ch. Mr. Drlggs, is thnt you?" said the little girl, getting up quickly and a In coming nearer. "Did you ever have to write a composition?" "Yes, Carolyn May, I have to write one or two each week." And he sighed. "Oh, yes 1 So you do !" the little girl ngreed. "You have to write sermons. And that must be a terribly tedious thing to do, for they have to be longer than my composition—a great deal longer." "So it is a composition that is troub ling you," the young minister re marked. "Yes, sir. I don't know what to write—I really don't. Miss Minnie says for us not to try any flights of fancy. I don't just know what those are. But she says, write what Is in us. Now, thnt don't seem like a composi tion," added Carolyn May doubtfully. "What doesn't." "Why, writing what is In us," ex plained the little girl, staring in a the "I'll was for be up to in up, bell. crit the a be silli the he'd of In Tim Miss over was So cot was un that his May In vi who Even being had suf Miss par Doc off the at with found him his learn per of hand, skies, Per been more to come have her writ The study sit May on a to her for of of & Jjq 1$ sj 5 JVHW C tic* 1 t 'SA ^5* 'Carolyn May," Ha 8ald, "What Are You Writing?" puzzled fashion at her slate, on which she had written several lines. "You see, I have written down all the things that I 'member is in me." "For pity's sake 1 let me see it, child," said the minister, quickly reach ing down for the slate. When he brought it to a level with his eyes he was amazed by the following: "In me there is my heart,'my liver, my lungs, my verform pendicks, my 8tummiek, two ginger cookies, a piece of pepmint candy and my dinner." "For pity's sake!" Mr. Drlggs shot off this explosion by a sadden cough. "I guess it isn't mijch of a compo sition, Mr. Drlggs," Cterolyn May said frankly. "But how can yon make yonr Inwards be pleasant reading?" The minister was having no littlfe difficulty in restraining his mirth. "Go around to the door, Carolyn May, and ask Mrs. Drlggs to let yon In. Perhaps I can help yon in this composition writing." "Oh, will yon, Mr. Drlggs?" cried the little girl. "That is awful kind of you." The clergyman did not seem to mind neglecting his task for the pleasure of helping Carolyn May with hers.. He explained quite clearly Just what Miss Minnie meant by "writing what is in you.* "Oh! It's what yon think about a thing yourself—not what other folks think," cried Carolyn May. "Why, I can do that. I thought it was some thing like those physeroiogy lessons. Then I can write about anything I want to, can't I?" "I think so," replied the minister. "I'm awfully obliged to you, Mr. Drlggs," the little girl said. "I wish I might do something for you in re turn." "Help me with my sermon, per haps?" he asked, smiling. "I would If I could, Mr. Drlggs." Carolyn May wes very earnest. "Well, now, Carolyn May, how wonld you go- about writing a sermon if you had one to write?" "Oh, Mr. Drlggs I" exclaimed the little girl, clasping her hands. "I know Just how Td do It." "You do? Tell me how, then, my dear," lie returned, smiling. "Perhaps you have an inspiration for writing sermons that I have never yet found."

With the opening of spring and the close of the sledding season, woefc had stopped at Adams' camp. Uather, the entire plant had been shipped twenty miles deeper Into the forest—mill, bunkhouse, cook shed and such corru gated-iron shucks as were worth cart ing away. All that was left on the site of the busy camp were huge heaps of saw dust, piles of slabs, discarded timbers and the half-burned bricks into which had been built the portable boiler and engine. And old Judy Mason. She was not considered worth moving to the new site of the camp. She was bedridden with rheumatism. This was the report Tim, the backman, had brought in. The old woman's husband had gone with the outfit to the new camp, for he could not afford to give up his work. Judy had not been so bad when the camp was broken up, bat when Tim went over for a load, of slabs for summer firewood, he discovered her quite helpless in her bunk and almost starving. The rheumatic attack had become serious. Amanda Pariow had at once ridden over with Doctor Nugent. "How brave and helpful it is of Miss Amanda !" Carolyn May cried. "Dear me, when I grow up I hope I can be a gradjerate nurse like Miss Mandy." "I reckon that's some spell ahead," chuckled Mr. Pariow, to whom she said this when he picked her up for a drive after taking his daughter to the camp. / "Mr Pnriow," the girl ventured after a time, "don't you think now that Miss Amanda ought to be happy?" "Happy I" exclaimed the carpenter, startled, "What about, child?" "Why, about everything. You know, once I asked you about her being hap py, and—and you didn't seem fa v'rable. You said 'BahI'" The old man made no reply for a minute and Carolyn May had the pa tience to wait for her suggestion to "sink In." Finally he said: "I dunno but you're right, Car'lyn May. Not that it matters much, I guess, whether a body's happy or not In this world," he added grudgingly. ''Oh, yes, it does, Mr. Pariow! It matters a great deal, I am sure—to us and to other people. If we're not happy inside of us, how can we be cheerful outside, and so make other people happy? And that is what 1 mean about Miss Amanda." "What about Mandy?" "She isn't happy," sighed Carolyn May. "Not really. She's Just as good us good can be. She is always doing for folks 'and helping. But she can't be real happy." "Why not?" growled Mr. Pariow, his face turned away. "Why—'cause— Well, you know, Mr. Pariow, she can't be happy as long as she and my Cncle Joe are mad at each other." Mr. Pariow uttered another grunt, but the child went bravely on. "You know very well that's so. And I don't know what to do about It. It Just seems too awful that they should hardly speak, and yet be so fond of each other deep down." "How d'you know they're so fond of each other—deep down?" Mr. Pariow demanded. "I know my Uncle Joe likes Miss 'Mandy, 'cause he always speaks so so respectful of her. And I can see she likes him, in her eyes," replied the of to /X in J a I I I A Vv t . . _ observant Carotyn May. "Oh, yes, Mr. * they ought to be happy again, an ^ TI "?

This is understood to be due to the American interests in volved and to the recent statement by Luis Cabrera, Mexican secretary of finance, that Mexico would not pay its debts at present, even if it had the money, preferring to await the results of the Paris peace conference to see "what the world in general will do with its obligations, how many na tions will repuliate their debts, and how many will trim their obligations to figures compatible with their in come."
