B. ALDERSON (Copyright, 1920. Western Newspaper Union) In half a century Bluoxton had scarcely changed. Farms, stores and residents passed from generation to generation, few moved away, few strangers came to remain It was an old-fashioned, steady going town, re vering its ancient landmarks, and in terest centered in community welfare solely. There was an ideal homelikeness and comfort to its one hotel that charmed Italph Disston, and a certain geniality in the greetings of people he had never met before. At the end of a week the tall, handsome young man, with the pallor of frail health In his face, disclosed the object of his visit and was welcomed with open hands and hearts. Disston had been employed in mer cantile lines in the city, and his labors had resulted in a breakdown. I'hysi clans had advised life in the open, and it seemed possible when he was apprized that tlis half uncle, Reuben Page, at ltloxton, had left him the farm that had been in the family for over seventy years. What ready mon ey the latter possessed had been die tributed among his sisters. Disston found the old farm neglect ed and run down. But that could readily be attended to, John Paxton, his nearest neighbor, told him. Per haps, too, an acquaintance with Gladys, his daughter, had a good deal to do in influencing Disston. She was a sun-browned, wholesome young woman of twenty-two, brisk, indu.. trious and happy spirited, and she act ed as guide and adviser in taking Disa ton over his newly acquired domain. People warmed up to him after he made it known that he was the heir to the Page farm. Then Disston made the community more friendly than ever when two men. Ezra and Ben Cooper, brothers, called upon him. "Your uncle has let us each occupy fifty acres where the farm touches the creek since we were boys, free gratis," Ezra Cooper told Disston. "I suppose we've got to pack up and leave now?" "Not at my request," replied Dlsston promptly. "I would miss having you people around to help me out when 1 make blunders. You can stay right where you are on the old arrange mient." Disston made an arrangement with the Cooper brothers to work the crops on shares until he secured a better grasp of the situation. The hue of hea!th came Into his face with pure air and plenty of it, substantial food and companionable evenings spent among his neighbors. It was Gladys who inducted him into driving the old heavy team that went with the place, and with her mother did much in making the interior of the house pre sentable. One night the stables of the place caught fire. Neighbors saved some farm machinery, but the horses and the two wagons were consumed. The loss was greatly felt by Disston, for he had not the money to replace these necessary adjuncts to successful farming. Everybody sympathized with him, and there were tears in the eyes of Gladys as she stood by his side viewing the ruins of the old barn. Disston had to arrange with a neighbor to do what carting was re quired and the setback seriously im peded his plans. Disston detected a symptom of sup pressed excitement in Gladys as she came over early one morning and asked him to go with her to secure some flowers just beginning to bloom. He was somewhat surprised at this in tringement on working hours on the part of this practical little girl farm er, the more so when she dallied alter gathering the flowers and two hours sped away. "Now, let us get back to the house through the little grove," she spoke as they regained the vicinity of the house and then, just as they cleared this, she exclaimed in a joyful tones: "Now look ! What do you see?" What Ralph Dlsston saw held him Sspellbound. In the yard was a brand oew barn wagon of the latest type. Attached to it were two superb black bhorses, young, strong, shapely. Ani Smals and vehicle were decorated with - ribbons, and as they approached them they saw a card attached to the wagon which read: "From true friends to the new farmer." "Dear Mr. Disston," spoke Gladys, "there is not a persori in Bloxton who has not joined In this gift They al ways help when anybody is in trou ble--just as you did with the Cooper boys." It took all the morning for Ralph Disston to get over the vast surprise of the day. He had certainly come among people kindly and loyal as own brothers and sisters, and he felt sin cerely in hisb heart that his lines had indeed fallen in pleasant places. "Well, what do you think of It, friends?" submitted John Psaxton com ing over from his home. "I tell you when these whol-hearted Bloxtoaltes take a fancy to a man, he's fxed for life. Next thing they'llt be 8ndlng a wife for you, bey?' "I hope they do," rejonlaed Disstom promptly, with a glance at his pretty companion. "And I hope." he added, audacious ivy. "they won't go far to find her."
