drinking ways. Thero Is a flurry In tho
money market, but Daylight tolls Dedo
that ho Is going to work on a ranch and
prove to her that he has reformed.
CHAPTER XX. Continued.
Two days Inter, Daylight stood wait
lug outside tho little Glen. Ellen hotel.
Tho ceremony was. ovor, and ho had
left Dede to go Insldo and change
Into her rldlng-hahlt while ho brought
tho horses. Ho hold them now, Boh
and Blab, and In tho shadow of tho
watering-trough Wolf lay and looked
on. Already two days of ardent Cali
fornia sun and touched with new fires
the ancient bronze in Daylight's face.
But warmer still was tho glow that
came Into his cheeks and burned In
his eyes as he saw Dedo coming out
tho door, rldlng-whlp In hand, clad in
the" familiar corduroy skirt and leg
gings of tho old Plodtnont days. There
wns warmth and glow In her own face
as she answered his gaze and glanced
on past him to the horses. Then sho
saw Mab. But her gazo leaped back
to the man.
"Oh, Elam!" sho breathed.
Many persons, themselves city-bred,
and city reared, have fled to the
soil and succeeded (in winning great
happiness. In such cases they
have succeeded only by going
through a process of savage disil
lusionment But with Dede and Day
light it was different. They had both
been born on the soil, and they knew
Its naked simplicities and rawer ways.
They ,"ero Hko two persons, after far
wandering, who had merely come
homo again. Thero was less of tho
unexpected in their dealings with na
ture, while theirs was all tho delight
of reminiscence. What might appear
sordid and squalid to tho fastidiously
reared, waa to them .eminently whole
some and natural. The commerce of
nature was to them no unknown and
untried tratia. They raado fowor mis
takes. They already knew, and It was
a Joy to re:nembor what they had for
gotten. And another thing they learned was
that it was easier for ono who hns
gorged at the flesh-pots to content
himself with tho mcagronoss of a
cruBt, than for ono who ha3 known
only tho nrust. Not that thoir llfo
was moagr. It was that thoy found
kocner delights and deeper satisfac
tions In Httlo things. Daylight, who
had played the gamo in Its biggest
and most fantastic aspects, found
thnt hero, on tho slopes of Sonoma
Mountain, it was still the same old
game. Man had still work to porform,
forcos to combat, obstacles to over
come. When ho experimented In a
small way at raising a fow pigeons
for market, he found no less zost in
calculating In Bquabs than formerly
whon ho had calculated in millions.
Achievement was no less achieve
ment, while the process of It seomod
mora rational and rocolvod the sanc
tion of his reason.
Tho domestic cnt that had gono
,wlld and that preyed on his pigeons,
bo found, by tho comparatlvo stand
ard, to he of no less paramount men
acq than a Charles Kllnkner in the
Hold of finance, trying to raid him for
several millions. The hawks nnd
woasols and 'coonu wero so many

eoa of wild vegotut.'on hat tossed its
surf against tho boundaries of all his
oloarings and that sometimes crept In

In the nook of hills that railed of tta
best waa a problem of engrossing lm

putting in dralntlte, tho joy of tho
achlovetuont was ovor with him. Ho
nover worked In it and found the soil
unpacked and tractablo without ex
periencing tho thrill of accomplish
ment. There wns tho matter of tho plumb
ing. Ho wns onabled to purchase tho

number of his hair bridles. Tho work

he was forced to call in Dedo to hold
tight wJth a plpo-wronch. And In tho
end, when tho bath-tub and tho sta
tionary tubs wore installed and in
working order, ho could scarcely tear
himself away from tho contemplation
of what his hands bad wrought. Tho
first evening, missing him, Dedo
sought and found him, lamp In hand.
staring with silent gleo at tho tubs.
Ho rubbed his hand over their smooth
woodon lips and laughed aloud, and
was as shamo-facod as any boy whon
sho caught him thus secrotly exulting
In his own prowess.
It was this adventure in wood-working
nnd plumbing that brought about
the building of the littlo workshop.

of loved tools. And he, who in tho
old days, out of his millions, could

conceived forthright a great Idea. For
six months sho saved her egg-money,
which was hors by right of allotment,
and on his birthday prosentcd him

plicity and multifarious efficiencies.
And their mutual delight in tho lathe,
which wns his, was onfy equalled by
their delight in Mob's first foal, which
was Dodo's special prlvato property.
Daylight had made no nsscrtton of
total abstinence, though he had not
takon a drink for months after tho
dny be resolved to let hi a business go
to smash. Soon ho proved himself
strong enough to dare to tako a
drink without taking a second. On
tho other hond, with his coming to
live in the country, bad passed all do
sire and nood for drink, He folt no
yearning for it, and even forgot that
It existed. Yet he refused to be
afraid of It, and In town, on occasion,
whon invited by tho storekeeper,
would reply: "All right, son. If my
taking a drink wilt raako you happy,
here goes. Whisky for mlno."
But such a drink bogat no' deslro

brother, tho Daylight from Alaska,
had takon his place. Tho threatened
inundation of fat had subsided, and
nil his old-time Indian leanness nnd
llthencss of musclo hnd returned. So,
likewise, did tho old slight hollows In
his checks come back. For him thoy
indicated tho pink of physical condi
tion. Ho becamo tho acknowledged
strong, man of Sonoma Valley, tho
heaviest lifter and hardest winded
among a husky raco of farmer folk.
At first, when In need of ready cash,
ho had followed Ferguson's cxamplo
of working at day's labor; but ho was
not long In gravitating to a form of
work thnt was more stimulating and
moro satisfying, nnd that allowed him
oven moro time for Dedo and tho
ranch nnd the perpotunl riding through
tho hills. v Having been chnllonged by
tho blncksmlth, in n spirit ol banter,
to attempt tho breaking of a certain
incorrigible, colt, ho succeeded so sig
nally as to earn quite a reputation 03
a horse-breaker. And soon ho was
ablo to earn whatever money ho de
sired at this, to him, agreeable work.
His llfo was eminently wholcsomo
and natural. Early to bed, he Blept
Hko an infant and was up with the
dawn. Always with something to do,
and with a thousand little things thnt
enticed but did not clamor, he wns
himself nover ovordono. Nevertheless,
thero were times wben both he nnd
Dede was not above confessing tired
ness at bedtime of ter seventy or eighty
miles in the saddle. Sometimes, wben
ho had accumulated a littlo money,
and when the season favored, thoy
would mount their horses, -with saddle-bags
behind, and ride away ovor
the wall of tho volley and down Into
the other valleys.
Like to Tackle You Again.'
Ono day, stopping to mail a letter
at the Glon Ellen postofflce, thoy wero
hailed by the blacksmith.
"Say, Daylight," he said, "a young
fellow named Slosson sends you bis
regards. Ho came through in an auto
on tho way to Santa Rosa. Ho wnntod
to know If you didn't Hvo horenhouts,
but the crowd with him was in a hur
ry. So ho sent you his rcgnrds and
said to toll you he'd taken your ad
vice and wns Btlll going on breaking
his own record."
Daylight had long since told Dedo
of the incident.
"Slosson?" ho meditated, "Slosson?
That must be the hnrnmer-thrower.
Ho put my hand down twice, tho
young scamp." Ho turned suddenly
to 'Dodo. "Say, it's only twelve miles
to Santa Rosa, and the horses are

of which bis twinkling eyes and sheep
ish, boyish grlu gave sufficient adver

"We'll cut across by Bennett Val
ley," bo said. "It's nearer that way."
Thero was littlo difficulty, once In
Santa Robo, of finding Slosson. Ha
and his party had registered at the
Oborlln Hotel, and Daylight encoun
tered the young hammer-thrower him
self in the office,

Slosson smiled and nccopted. Tho
two men fnced each other, tho elbows
of their right nrms on tho counter, tho
hands clasped. Slosson's hand quick
ly forced backward and down.
"You're the first man that ovor suc
ceeded In doing It," ho said. "Let's
try It again."
"Sure," Daylight answered. "And
don't forget, son, that you're the first
man that put mine down. That's why
I lit out nftcr yoii todny."
Again they clasped hands, and
again Slosson's hand went down. Ho
was a brond-shoulder-od, heavy-mus
cled young giant, at least half a head
taller than Daylight, and he frankly
expressed his chagrin and asked for a
third trial. This time he steeled him
self to the effort, and for a moment
tho issue was In doubt. With flushed
face and set teeth he met the other's
strength till his crackling muscles
failed him. Tho air exploded sharply
from his tensed lungs, as ho relaxed
in surronder. and the' hand dropped
limply down.
"You'ro too many for me," ho con
fessed. "I only hope you'll keep out
of tho hammer-throwing gamo."
Daylight laughed and shook his
"Wo might compromise, and each
stay in his own class. You stick to
hammer-throwing, and I'll go on turn
ing down hands."
But Slosson refused to accept de
feat. "Say," ho called out, as Daylight
and Dede, astride their horses, -were
preparing to depart. "Say do you
mind If I look you up next year? I'd
Hko to tackle you again."
"Sure, son. You'ro welcome to a
flutter any time. Though I give you
fair warning that you'll have to go
some. You'll have to train up, for I'm
plowing and chopping wood and break
ing colts these days."
Now and again, on the way homo,
Dede could hear her big boy-husband
chuckling gleefully. As they halted
their horses on tho top of the divide
out of Bennett Valley, In order to
watch the sunset, he ranged alongside
and slipped his arm around her waist.
"Little woman," he said, "you'ro
sure responsible for It all. And I leave
It to you, if nil tho money In creation
Is worth as much as one arm like that
when it's got a sweet littlo woman
Hko this to go around."
Daylight's steadfast contention was
that his wife should not become cook,
waitress, and chambermaid because
she did not happen to possess a house
hold of servants. On the other hand,
chafing-dish suppers in the big living-
room for their camping guests wero a
common happening, at which times
Daylight allotted them their chores
and saw that they were performed.
For one who stopped only for the
night It was different. Likewise it
was different with her brother, back
from Germany, and again able to sit
a horse. On his vacations he became
the third In the family, and to him
was given tho building of tho fires,
the sweeping, and the washing of the
Singing Teaches Correct Breathing
and Lively Waltzes Have Good Ef
fects on Melancholia Patients.
Two English physicians of promt
nence have recently asserted that tbo
exercise given to tho lungs in singing
Is valunblo in the prevention and cure
of diseases of those organs. They
consider that increased professional
recognition should be extended to this
special therapeutic agency, ns advis
able In cases where pulmonary con
sumption is feared.
Singing Involves correct nasal
breathing, and this means that tha
air admitted to tho lungs is prac
tlcallygerm freo, and also the ade
quate d'evelopment of tho upper por
tions of tbo respiratory passages. An
other effect Is the maintenance of the
elasticity and proper expansion of tho
chest. Tho necessary breathing exor
cises mean increased functional ac
tivity or the lungs. Thon, thero is
tho Improved oxygenation of the
blood, which singing necessarily pro
motes. As we know, most singers and also
thoso musicians who perform on wind-
instruments are n healthy looking lot.
Not many years from now music will
bo recognized as a most valuable cur
atlvo agent, especially In enses of In
sanity or morbidity. What tired, over
wrought, distressed man or woman
does not know tho value of music.
How many beautiful storios could be
told of tho power of music to sustain
nnd restrain?
