quickly, as if to dodge Chatelard's

s picked up the rusty marlinspike. It
was a weapon of might, indeed. Jim's
't blow caused Chatelard's arm to drop,
e limp and nerveless. But in gaining
his enemy's weapon, Jim was forced
to drop his own. He put a firm foot
upon the spike, however, while he

Moon's Influence on Tides
Survival of Old-Time Superstition
Which Has Been Found Impossi

The influence of the moon upon the
weather was in ancient times assumed
in much the same way as the influence
of the moon upon the tides of the sea
was assumed. There was no proper
knowledge of the facts in either case,
and it was accepted in both cases
merely because the regular changes
of the earth's shadow on the moon
were used as the great primitive time
keeper, and any frequent changes in
other things must happen after some
one or other of those regular changes.
The barbaric guess, "Post hoc ergc

"Although it is not generally

brooms, "the house broom. such as
the housewife uses, is comparatively
a recent invention, dating back to
1786. Before that time husk brooms
were used to sweep out the ovens and

had its beginning in Connecticut in
1786, when Ievi Dickinson, a native

"I'11 forgive you if you'll take it all

"I take it back. I never meant it."
"Then may one ask why-"
"Oh, James, I don't know why."
Anybody could have told them that
it was only a phase of feminine panic
in the face of the unknown, necessary
as sneezing. But, as Jim said, it
"Never mind. Only I don't want
you to marry me because you found

"James! To talk like that! You

"Then, what was it?" Jim, sudden

his well-known ingenuous and inno

"Yes, because-" Jim prompted her.
"Oh. Jimsy, you know."
"No, I don't."
Agatha, loving his teasing, but too
deeply moved, too generous and sin

him again a face shining with tender
r:ess Her eyes, like stars; her lips,
"Only love, James, dear--"
Something rose again in Jimmy's
soft heart, choking him. As he had
thrilled to the unknown ecstasy in
Agatha's song, many days before, so
rnow he thrilled to her voice and face,
eloquent for him alone. Love and its
rower, life and its meaning, the long,
long thoughts of youth and hope and
desire--thse held him in thrall.
