best known financial institutions of
the county. Its capital and surplus of

the financial dealings of Tomah and
the territory adjacent to it. It is
thoroughly organized in all ways. The
test of the real value of your bank to
you comes when you are hard pressed
and need quick financial assistance.
A small bank may wish to help you
but because of its low capitalization
and resources is unable to do so in
times when there are demands for
money: With a bank such as this you
can get the assistance that your credit
standing will justify. One dollar will
start a savings account here and you
will be paid three per cent interest on
it. The bank handles real estate
loans and has safety deposit boxes
for rent for storing your valuables suad
papers safely from theft or fire..-'

The tranquil days succeeded one an
other like the beiids on a rosary.""'After
polishing the great lenz and making
everything tidy, Byrne loved to sit
on the balcony overlooking the ocean
and watch the grand water panorama
which was constantly shifting before
his eyes the white-winged steamers
with their waving banners of smoke,
the flocks of sea gulls cleaving the air
on level pinion or sitting gracefully on
the rolling billows. Through his glass
he could see shoals of porpoises at
play like frolicsome schoolboys, and,
farther off, a feathery column of spray
followed by a gleam of the huge brown
back of a whale.
Day after day he watched the creep
ing tide cover the sands and then re
tire, marking each step of its retreat
with a winrow of pale green seaweed
and stranded shell fishes. The mys
terious heart-thr6ts of the ocean, now
ealing like thunder, now rippling
softly as summer wavelets on an in
land lake, thrilled him as no human
speech could da ,t

Beft'iftd the lighthouse weW gfpsfotie
evergreen forests, solemn, immense,
while overtopping these, their snowy
peaks clearly defined against the blue
sky, rose the magnificent range of the
Olympic' Mountains. Across the bay,
in a sheltered nook, was the straggling
village with its two saw-mills and a
salmon cannery, with foreign ships oc
casionally lying at its wharf loading
lumber and fish for distant ports.
Among the blackened stumps which
formed a conspicuous feature of the
village landscape, on a gentle emi
nence, rose the white walls of a
modest chapel where Mass was cele
brated once a month by a priest from
the hig city thirty miles away. Byrne
was a regular attendant at church on
these occasions, but he stood aloof
from his fellow »worshippers, never
seeking the acquaintance of the plain
but kindly people who made up the
small congregation, and who, in their
turn, regarded him as, to say the
least, "queer." In his solitude be
tween the vastness of the sea and the
sky, his lonely communings with
nature had put him out of touch with
his kind.
Thus, for two years he had kept
his lamp trimmed and burning, when,
on a sudden, deadly languor seemed
to steal upon his once stalwart frame.
When he trimmed his lamp his hands
shook like aspens, and he found him
self obliged to rest a dozen times
while climbing the stairs. He was
compelled to give up going to Mass
on the accustomed Sundays of the
month, because the labor of rowing
the hoat was too much for his enfee
bled strength
and
his reticence, which
his co-religionists had mistaken for
churlishness, .effectually ..prevented
any Inquiries -concerning him from
that quarter. On Christmas Eve he

had lighted his lamp as usual, and
then seated himself, gazing off to sea

In this favored spot, Christmas is
not ushered in by drifting snows and
polar cold. A light, moist breeze just
stirred the bosom of the water and
lifted the thin white locks from the
old man's temples as he bared his
head to the refreshing breath. The
full moon shone from a soft, starlit
sky.

Perhaps it was the spell of the hal
lowed day and hour, combined with
the moonlight and the mysterious
voices of ^he sea, that stirred tender
memories in the old man's heart and
wrought strange hallucinations in his
brain. His emotions overpowered
him. He stretched out his arms
yearningly toward the iBflnite space
with the cry, "O Mollie,, Jamie, come
back to me!"
Suddenly, as if in answer to his
ieart-wrung prayer, and before the
icho of his cry had died away, some
:hing rose up out of the black abyss
of waters and moved toward him
I own the shimmering pathway of rosy
light reflected from his lantern. It
1 :ame on swiftly, seeming to float,
rather than to tread upon the waters,
tntil now he could plainly distinguish
the graceful outlines of a woman's
form holding a babe in her arms. She
paused updn the illuminated spot close
to the tower, and lifted her shining
eyes, filled with love to those of the
lonely watcher on the balcony. He
was thrilled through and through not
with fear, but with delight and
wonder.
A great eob broke from his heart
and he extended his arms murmuring,
"I knew you'd come to me Mollie I've
waited for you so long, so long!"
He wiped away the tears that were
raining down his cheeks, and when he
looked again where the beautiful
vision had stood, he saw only the
frothing waves running in over the
yellow sands. With a lighter heart in
his bosom than he had known for
many a year, he descended to his room
and retired to rest, a happy light In
his eyes, and a happy smile on his
withered lips.
In the early morning of the day after
Christmas, the harbormaster strode
into the silent room with a heavy
tread, and going up to the bedside,
said in a gruff voice, "Hello, old man,
wake up!' Aren't you through cele
brating yet? Are you sick or drunk?
The 'Albatross' went on the rocks
last night, and two men were drowned,
I'm afraid you've lost your job. Come,
get up," and he shook the still form
rudely. An instant later he fell back,
awe-stricken, and beat a hasty retreat
to his boat, muttering, "Poor old fel
low and all alone! Too bad! too bad!
We'll have a hard time to find another
like him."
y
Roger Byrne's wanderings were
over, Christmas morn had dawned
for him on a celestial shore, where
Mollie and Jamie were waiting for
him, and where partings are no more
forever.
