Mrs. Martindale answered the call and P1 received an inquiry from her hbus- O band's omce asking itf he were at Ca a home. Mrs. Martindale replied that he was not and asked why the inquiry was made. The answer was that a gentleman who had an appointment a1 with him was waiting for him; that Mr. Martindale had gone out to lunch st and had not returned. t Mr. Martindale did not come home t to. dinner. is wife telephoned to his club and to every other place where "bhe was likely to go without fnding lit any trace of him.

After the police had searched 1e several months for the missing man t without finding him his wife reluc r tantly came to the conclusion that he b was the man who had jumped from the ferryboat. Since his business and domestic affairs were in the most sat isfactory condition it was supposed a that he had committed suicide under a fit of temporary mental aberration.

QUAD Copyright, I~u. by Associated Lit erary Press. For twenty years the village of ineville had had a custom of its own in the 15th of every September, in see the day did not fall on a Sunday couple of barrels of new cider were laced on the public square and tap ed and everybody invited to drink beir ill. It was a day of rejoiciug nd was known as eider day. On a certain 14th of September a tranger arrived in the village by tage. It was not so uncommon fot trangers to arrive, but this was an acommon man. He had a clubfoot; e had but one eye; be.had a voice Ike the bellow of a bull; he bad but no eyebrow. His personal appear ace was freely commented on, as is he way of the villager, and there was yeat curiosity to know who he was nd what had brought him there. The stranger was limping around own next day when the cider was rought in and the rejoicings began, at be paid no attention until after lon. Then the men had begun to rarm up and grin and laugh and slap ach other on the back. Firecrackers were thrown under the stranger's feet, nd when he voiced his displeasure be was laughed and jeered at. Then he lot a hand on his back and was chal enged to a wrestling match and a rWal of cuffing off hats. He was in rited to drink prosperity to Pineville n a dipper of new cider, and when he tfused to do so a quantity was poured m his hat. The stranger was a good swearer, nad he swore. He stood on the public iquare and swore, and he sat on the - tavern veranda and swore, and he *,, Locked himself in his room and swore. I 1ll day the town made merry, as per ustom, and next day some of the lead lng citizens called to make excuses. The stranger had hired a rig and de parted after an early breakfast. Pineville wanted a railroad. It had wanted one for years and at times had had strong hopes. The trouble was in the hills half surrounding it There must be a costly tunnel. En gineers had come and estimated and reported, and the cost had been con sidered too high. A new and greater effort was now on foot; and three days after cider day a large and enthusias tic mass meeting was held. At this meeting a greater sum was pledged than ever before, and a delegate was __ sent to the headquarters of the P. and P. railroad to lay the matter before the proper officials. The line to Pineville, " itf built, would be a branch. The dele- T gate was politely received and listened to and then told that a larger delega- "] tlon had better come down. Indeed. ly. the names of seven of his fellow cai townsmen were given him, and they gre would be received and the matter ma gone into. ber When the delegation reached the city att It was informed that if Plneville got pa Its branch it would be through a cer- bad tan capitalist, who would give them mi audlence half an hour later. He did so. They fled into is olee and up to g his desk to ind the man of the club- a toot. He had a smile on his face, but ses they did not like the smile He spoke In honeyed words, but at the same time we he had the door locked and three stout at men brought in. wh "Glad to see you, gentlemen-very tar glad," he said to the delegation uas a whole. "You may perhaps remember that I visited your pleasant little town Itl the ether day. Very nice town; very the ie town. Very enterprisnlag people. Ho Very ebarming custom you have up d there."

So you came to see about a branch lIa to your town? Well, after an exhi bition of a little custom of my own we will proceed to talk. There's the pail and dipper. Help yourselves."
