- A good lamp is in one such gift. A
lamp stands for so much that is pecu
liarly intimate and friendly. Its light
ing marks the end of the day's work
and the approach of the pleasantest
hours of the whole twenty-four when
the old people and the young come to
gether for rest and play; when neigh
bors drop in to make the evening merry;
when the labors and the worries of the
work-a-day world without are put aside
ror a time. Frowns and wrinkles are
smoothed out, laughter springs up and
spreads spontaneously, under the lamp
like glow; and, if this same lamp was a
Christmas present from a friend, how
pleasantly the thoughts of those it
shines upon should turn towards the
giver.
Of all artificial lights the eye special
lts agree that an oil lamp is easiest on
the human eye, giving thelight that, in
its eneet on the otitic nerve, comes near
eil to the natural light of day; and the
liht from the Rayo lamp, while clear
and bright, is remarkably bright, mel
low and diffused. The new burner
with which this season's model is fitted
gives extra strength and prevents all
flickering, so that it does not strain the
eyes even of those who are sitting far
away from it. In appearance the Kayo
satisfies the most exacting; its light-
giving qualities cannot be surpassed
Try It, Try It
Try Dr. Bell's Antiseptic Sal ve for all
akin troubles. It is as pleasant as
sweei cream andguaranteed to give
satisfaction in worse cases. 23c a box

"When the chllder woke up wasn't
they whoopln wld the cough and wld
surprise at flndln' the Charity out In
the middle of the seaT But they're
good young ones. Angeline got the
breakfast and the other two took care
of themselves. And Yan took a trick
at the wheel while I minded the en
gine and warmed up me old bones. All
the time, mind ye, the Charity was
thumpln' and splutterin' along In great
shape. And about nine o'clock of as
grand a winter morning as ever ye see
she sailed Into the harbor of Bayport
as nne as an admiral's ship.
"Where will she land?' ses Yan
" 'Sure, where ye see the coalpock-
tits,' ses I.
"As she swung up alongside the coal
dock a feller come out on the end of It.
What boat's that?' ses he.
"TIs a coal boat," ses I; 'wld coal
in it.'
'Ye've come to the right place. ses
he. And he helped us to tie ud In a
Jiffy.
'The boss will buy It oft ye like a
streak.' ses the man.
'Maybe so and maybe not.' ses I.
Where is the boss?'
Well, he showed himself eomin'
down the pier like a runaway.'
"'Coal,' ses he; 'let me see if
"He seen It. and then we struck on
bargain. He'd give me eight dol
lars a ton, and I held out for ten. cash
down. In the course of the argyment
he called me a robber.
'Robber, Is it?' ses I. 'AH rleht
there's likely other people In this town
who want to buy coal and who are
more perllte.'
Tou can't sell it except through
me,' he ses. 'I'm the regular coal
dealer.'
'And I've got the coal,' ses I.
The upshot of it was I struck a
bargain wid me little man. I'd let
him have 50 tons at $8 and he'd let
me sell the rest for what I could get
on his dock, and have the use of his
scales and hire a couple of his men
to unload. Wid that settled I walked
uptown and stopped In at the biggest
stores, just mentlonln' that a coal boat
was In and that we'd begin sellin' In
about half an hour.
vvnen I got back there was a mob
on the Charity, from old women wld
buckets to well-to-do fellers who'd
come wid a two-horse team. And as
soon as Yap pointed me out they made
for me.
Gentlemln and ladies,' ses I. 'It's
$10 a ton.'
Most of them thought 'twas too
much and told me so. But I told
thom there was places besides Bay
port that wanted coal, and they could
take mine or leave It And after some
argyment we got to work on a plan
that I'd thought out in me mind while
comln' up. Yan bossed the unloadln',
and I looked after the weighln' and
takln' In the cash. And I sold me coal
to them as came wld pails at ten cents
the pall; and to them as brought
wheelbarrows at the rate of 15 cents a
pail; and anything over a wheelbarrow
full at the rate of $10 a ton. And no
one, If I could help It, got more than
a ton. But they put up tricks on me.
There was one feller had a gang of
boys buyln' pails full and dumpln 'em
In a wagon that was hid behind the
fence. And there was honest lookin'
men come back for their second ton
and swore themselves blue In the face
tellln' me they'd never been near me.
And the fights I had about the weights.
But that coal went and yon could see
the whole town of Bayport gettln' red
in the face wld the Joy of gettln' warm
again. And when I turned In that
night so tired I could hardly stand or
see, and saw all them winders In the
town lighted up, I ses to mesllf
'They may send you to Jail for It
Mary McGonigle, but today ye done
good turn of business.'
"The next mornln' we turned over
the fifty tons to the dealer, and pretty
well cleaned up the cargo. And along
toward the end when trade was gettln'
slack, a little, pompous, major-general
sort of a feller, In a fine carriage wld
a coachman, came down on the dock
In a hurry.
'Me good woman,' ses he. "what are
ye sellln' yer coal at?'
" 'Fifteen dollars the ton,' ses I.
Fifteen!" ses he. 'No. no. I know
Deuer. You're sellin' It at ten, and
an outrageous price at that'
its gettln' scarce,' ses I. 'and
the price has gone up'
un, that s nonsense.' ses he. I'm
unhappily a little short of coal, but
11 Pay no such price as that Why,
me money Is Invested in coal mines
and me son-in-law Is the president of
one or the coal-carrying railroads.
I m In the coal business meself.'
ses I, 'and I've learned a thing or two
about their way of doing business. Me
price is fifteen.'
"Well, he blustered and be argued
and he said he'd have me Indicted. But
I showed him there was mighty little
coal left In the Charity, and said nary
a word about the fifty tons at the deal
er's. And the upshot was I sold him
nve tons at $15. But me conscience
reproached me.
" 'Ye ought not to have done it, Mary
McGonigle,' ses I; 'sellin five tons to
one man and the poor folks of the
town wantin coal so.'
"So I goes up to the offloe of the
dealer and asks him If he won't set
aside some of his coal, the same as

I done, at ten cents a pall for the poor
people. And be, as I'd been told, beln'
a politician, and the reporter of tho
Bayport newspaper beln' In his office,
he said he'd set aside five tons. He
didn't say It, though, with a pleased
air.
'Hut we parted good friends. He
wanted to know when I'd be up again
wld a load of coal, and to be sure to
let him have a chance at the cargo.
But before I set foot on the Charity
be come after me hot foot
"What's this I hear?' he ses, mad
as a hornet. 'Ye sold five tons to Mr.
Wells at $15 the ton?'
" Te hear right,' I ses.
" "What d ye mean by it? He's my
customer. What d'ye mean by it?" he
bawls.
'It's my coal he asked for and got'
ses I.
'The cheek of ye,' he ses. "Why,
that man owns coal mines. And hla
son-in-law is the president of the
Wyomin' Valley railroad.
"So that's me story, Mr. McNamara.
I ve done a good turn of business, wid
over nineteen hundred dollars hidden
around In me clothes; but I'm not sure
I haven't overdone me business a bit
What'U Mr. Courtenay say when he
hears how I stung his father-in-law?
And how will I settle wld the railroad
company and get away wld some of
me profits. Them are questions Pre
came down to ask you, while I've left
the Charity up beyond City island out
of the way of the perllce."
"Mrs. McGonigle,' I said, "there is
one thing for you to do, and that is to
see the president of the Wyoming Val
ley railroad yourself."
"Before the perllce sees me," said
Mrs. McGonigle, grimly. "Yes, that's
good advice."
"And tell him your whole story," I
added.
"Um-ra-m," said Mrs. McGonigle.
"And how about his father-in-law?"
"Have you considered, Mrs. McGon
igle," I asked, "what relation the wife
of Mr. Wells is to the president of the
Wyoming Valley railroad? No? His
mother-in-law."
A gleam shot from Mrs. McGonlgle's
shrewd eyes, and she brought her big,
knuckled fist down on my desk with
a thump.
That's an idee," she cried, "and I'm
the woman to follow It up. Goodby,
and thankye kindly. I'll let ye know
how I come out And ye'll help us If
we get Into throuble, Yan and me and
Angeline and Alberta and little Aga-thar."
Some hours later my telephone bell
rang. I put the receiver to my ear,
and straightway withdrew my ear
from the receiver. After another and
more cautious trial I thought that a
bellows must be operating at the other
end, such a snorting and puffing came
crackling along the wire. Gradually
distinguished a human voice, evi
dently in very close proximity to the
telephone, and speaking in a tone of
thunder.
"Is this Mr. McNamara himself?"
I breathed softly that it was.
"Well," buzzed the telephone, with a
series of gurgles and snaps, "I seen
Mr. Courtenay and he says I'm too
smart a woman to stay out of the
cchI business."
