It was the eve of the new year and Dale Webster, hailed by a companion s o 1 d 1 e r, j threw his knapsack ' I I within their ten) Just ' behind the heavy ar tillery at the front "somewhere in France." "Oh. brought In a captive," was his careless reply. "Ran into the skulker, marched him Into camp and left him in the guard house. Any letters?" "Nary a letter. They say the mail packs here are four days overdue, but they're rushing holiday stuff to the camps." Dale Webster sighed and Ids face grew wistful. "I've been expecting one letter particularly. You're my frleud, Roy?" "After your carrying me on your back half dead across the worst part of No Man's Land, with the Boches plugging away lor keeps, I guess so !" "And yon remember Winnie Trask?" "As a memory sweet and fragrant as a Held of daisies !" "Well, one night In a dugout I Just couldn't help but write her way back home there what I ought to have said to her before we left. Three months, and no word. I fancy I was too pre sumptuous. If I knew that Winnie was caring for me, thinking of me, at home, I'd never get lonesome. I'd fight double to get this mix-up over and back to her—bless her !" "Don't lose hope," encouraged Roy Bartley. "One of the fellows just got a letter, written by his sweetheart last September. It has been chasing him all over the frontier. About your pris oner—make you any trouble?" "Not a bit of It," declared Dale In a spirited way. "The bear—" "The bear!" repeated Roy In dermont.

Dale led the way to the guardhouse. Outside of It was gathered a noisy group. Half way up the flagpole was a great shaggy monster who cleverly reversed himself, slid to earth, turned a dozen graceful somersaults and walked around on his hind feet. "Oh, we'll put him on our vaude ville program as the one .leading at traction tomorrow !" voted a dozen ob servers. ''What's the row !" as cheer ing echoed from the other end of the encampment. From a dust-covered, battered automobile two men were throwing off packages. "Belated mall," announced the driver. "Section A. Throw off the plunder, men, and yon hungry fellows grab and distribute." Boxes, packages, tled-up bundles of newspapers and letters passed from hand to hand. Itoy Bartley was most active In the work of sorting out the heterogeneous muss. "Something for you. Dale," he called, poising a square box before hurling It. "I say." inspecting the marks on the box." It's been up and down the whole battle line !" "See If there isn't a letter." directed Dale, placing the box beside a tent, and bis eyes were eager and hopeful. Doubth the box held remembrances from some home group, but his soul was hungry for something more prized. "Nothing for you." called out Itoy, running over the letters In Ids hand. "Hey! look out for your box!" Itoy spoke Just in time. Old Rruln. unnoticed, had been -nilflng Intrusive ly at the box. Then he ligd pawed it. his claws piercing the f-dl pasteboard.

Some knitted socks and a dozen lit tle packages tied up with ribbon fell out of the shattered receptacle. Dole uttered a sharp gasp. Among them was a letter. He snatched It up and, aflu.sh and quivering, secreted it in his pocket quickly. But not.for long. When he had di vided the cake among his Importunate comrades nnd gathered up the num berless mementoes from home, he got to his tent speedily. He opened the precious missive, his eyes : park led. he kissed it fervently and his face fairly shone. What a wild, riotous, fun-produclug New Tear's day! Old Bruin did him self proud, and Dale never sang the patriotic songs apportioned him on the program so thrilling!)-. "I say." observed Roy quizzically as the day waned, "you've acted like some wild schoolboy !" "Reason to!" cried Dale fervently, nnd his heart benf faster against Ihe cherished missive lying next to It— the letter from Winnie saying; "I have always loved you, nnd. though half the world separates us, I love you now more than ever!" Insect Authority. Aesop nnd the author of Tom Saw yer agree In their mental • v 1 —»—.v, After describing the menial attitude of some creatures Aesop says smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
