Ellis, who at tint had been prone to attribute Helen's prostration to the Interview with Oiinaby, recalled the prowler she herself bad seen and could not but corroborate Mr. Dauntou's tory. Jack had rushed out, ouly tolind btiot tracks In tho snow and an uu fastened blind, but no other sign of a man. Mrs. Farrar was kept in total ig norance of the affair, and only Leale and Will at firt were taken iuto the se cret, though the tup tain at once went to consult his trusty noncommissioned offlceri. All tho same, though Helen laughed at ber weakness when morning came, she aud Ellis, parting for the night with but few words aud each feel ing conscious of the gulf belwt.-a theai, passed a rrstlrs und tin-inieting night.

" " Lh, Graice? Koy, ye were sayin. " "Muniercr, roisterer und rascal. Tom Graice," ho went on. "So I've nothing to fear from lire." Korkc eyed him long and distrustful ly, grunting audible comment on the story, to which some of the men had lis tened in absorbed interest, while others were busily removing the picture and setting it in place upon the walk Then, aa it was fairly hung, Crow Knife step ped back across the room, his eyes rev erently fixed upon the fine, soldierly face. Graice, meantime, after a hurried glance about him, had drawn a flask from his vest pocket and had lifted it to his lips, when Korke grabbed it "I thought so, ye mad brained gab bler! Ye' 11. be drunk before the day's half over. Get np and look at the pic ture, man. It's lookin at ye straight and stern. " "Who who's looking at me? What d d rot are yon talking?" shuddered Graice, "The colonel is, and as if he didn't relish tho eight. Small blame to him. " "It's a saying of my ptople," Haiti Crow iu his slow, solemn tone, "Whom the eyes of the dead call must rise and follow." "You croaking" hissed Giaiee, leaping to his feet aud rushing at the Indian, but Korke threw himself be tween them. "Play wid fire when ye may, man, but niver wid 11 tame tiger. Hush, now. Go out this door and cool that crazy head of yers. Here come the ladies. " Instantly the excited group scattered, the men resuming their work as though at no time thought of crime or quarrel had entered there, but Korke's heart was thumping hard as he went to his sta tion. First to enter were Captain Leale and Mr. Dauntou, though tho blithe voices aud cheery laughter of the others could be heard without. Evidently there was fun at Kitty's expense, and Leale had seized the opportunity to draw Helen to oho side. . They were talking earnestly as they entered. "It seems providential that Will's first station should bring his mother buck to the old home. Here and now at least the should bo safe from all shock, especially with your care to guard her, Mrs. Dauntou. She said to mo only yesterday: 'Helen came to me only a little over a year ago, but I think I have nettled her for years. She is dear to me, almost us my own daughter.' " "God bless her for those words," said Helen, deeply moved. "I came to her as a dependent, but she has taught lue a new delinitiou of motherhood." "Motherhood has its sorrowful mean ing for Mrs. Furrar," said Lcala grave ly, bis handsome dark eyes lixed upon her face. "Has she never spoken to you about Koyle, her eldest son?" "Sho has sometimes mentioned him," said Helen, with great constraint, "liut she can hardly bear to speak of him, aud I know the bitter sorrow he brought to every ono who loved him, but," she added quickly, as though eager to change tho subject, "how cozy aud warm and Christmasy it looks and smells 1 I shall have another new defini tion what Christmas means. We learn many definitions, dowenot, as life goes on, and sometimes fate is good to us and lets ns learn the happiest last." "And yon have learned a sad one of Christmas?" "I? A very 6ad one. My own baby died in my anus on Christmas eve." Leale bent earnestly toward the fad, sweet face, a deep emotion in his own, but at tho moment Ellis entered, follow ed closely by Ormsby. She bowed in evident constraint at sight of the couple, already there and looked as though she would gladly have turned about again. After her came Will and Kitty and other young people of the pest, all eager and intent 011 inspecting the prepara tions being made, all full of coninli- ments to Korke for the success attending nis labors, all lull of admiration of the IKirtrait, which they grouped about and admired, while Ellis hung her father's saber underneath. And then once again the whole party, chatting merrily, went drifting out into the crisp air aud glr. rious sunshine, leaving, glowering after them from the doorway of tho little loom that opened off the main hall, the ill favored, ill liked soldier Graice. Two minutes later, and no one could explain how it started or what was.its exciting cause, with hardly a spoken word or premonitory symptom, two men were clinched in furious struggle one. heavy, Lurly, powerful and gifted with almost demoniac strength, had hurled the other down. That other, lithe, sinewy, pantherlike in every motion. writhed from underneath his huge an tagonist aud hud sprung to his feet while the first, more slowly, heaved himself upward, and then, like a mad dened bull, dashed at bis foe. Soriucinc lightly lo one side. Crow Knife, for it was he, wliipptd from its sheath a glittering blade and poised it high in air, aud Graice, even in bis blind fury, saw and hesitated. There was a rush of the workmen to the spot, bnt Captain Leale was first of all. Clear aud cold and stein his voice was heard. "Drop that knife! Drop that knife, I 6uy!" and slowly, reluctantly, though his eyes were blazing with hate and rage, the Iudiau turned toward the man he had learned to trust, to honor and to obey, and the knife fell clattering to the floor. Graice made a lunge as though to grab it, aud Rorko's ready foot tripped and felled him. Then, with both hands, the Irishman grabbed fciin by the collar and dragged him, dazed and scowling, to his feet. "There are ladies coming, sir," was the warning of one of the men. "Take that man out and cool him J off," said Lc lie. (till calmly, to the cor poral. 'Tl'i near tlio story later. ynic-J j now, one anU all.' he added, as tLe group dispersed. "It is Mrs. Farrar." They met at the very doorway, the fair, radiant woman, closely followed by her daughter, the dazed, hulking soldier, led or rather driven forth by Corporal Korke, and instantly a change, swift and fearsome, shot across the sweet, pathetic face. One glance was all, and then, pale as death, she totter ed feebly forward. Ellis sprang to her side iu sndden alarm. "Mother, dear est, what is wrong? How you tremble!" For a moment she could not speak. "It is folly; it is weakness!" 6ho falter ed. "But that face that dreadful face! The look in those eyes the awful glit ter that only liquor kindles. I have not seen that look since oh, whenever I see it I say, God pity, pity his mother. " And then Helen Dauntou came has tily in aud helped to lead the agitated woman to a seat, and there she knelt be side her and soothed and comforted and cooed to her as women croon over a tired child, and Leale hovered helpfully about, grave, strong and gentle, and it was on his arm she leaned, with Helen at her side, when filially she stood to look at her husband's portrait. And lit tle by little she grew calm and the flut tering at her heart ceased to distress her, and Ellis, turning reluctantly away at the bidding of her garrison friends, left hi r mother to the ministrations of the woman whom with every hour, more and more, she learned to lock up on as a rival, aud then, saying that he vou!d cull for them in a few minutes WJtlppcd Jrom ifs xlicatb a yliltcrlwj lilmic. with his sleigh, believing that a short drive in the exhilarating air wonld be of benefit, Leale, too, left them, and Mrs. Farrar and Helen Dannton were practically alone. Mess call sounding cheerily had called the men to their noonday meal. The eyes of the elder woman had fol lowed the tall, soldierly form of Leale as he left the room, and then, tenderly, qncstioningly, almost entreatingly turn ed upon Helen. "I love him almost as I do my own son, Helen. My husband died in his arms. Surely yoa must realize that his great heart his belonged to you ever siin e Lu first tet eyes ou jour bonny face." Mrs. Dannton almost started to her feet. "Oh, not that! Surely not that I He is my good, true friend," she cried. "Not the less your friend because all your iover, Helen." "Oh, never my loverl I have noright I am not free!" "Listen to me, Helen. " pleaded her friend. "Shall one mistake blight a lifetime? I know your short marriage experience was a cruel one." "It was heaven knows it was," as sented Helen, shuddering. "Then do not make youth's mistake, dear," continued Mrs. Farrar, "and think the story ended because ono chap ter is closed. I thought my story ended when they brought me home my dead soldier. I've prayed many a time my story might end in tho years my first born was an outcast. Helen, I have hardly spoken to you of my eldest boy, but 1 can tell you now that, standing here tonight, I realize how out of sor row peace has come to me. Death, which took away my husband, gave me back my son. " "Death !' cried Helen. "Koyle Far rar is not dead?" "Helen, how strangely you 6peak. He has been dead a year, though only recently did they give me all the cruel facts. Major Wayne learned them from the consul in Mexico." In uncontrollable agitation Helen Dauntou had turned away. "Koyle Far rar dead!" she gasped." "Then I oh, God be thanked!" The tears were blinding Mrs. Farrar, and for a moment she saw nothing of Helen's agitation. The bells of Leale's slcifcii came trilling merrily up the road without. Hastily she dashed away the pearly drops and. smiling fondly, drew her shrinking friend to her embrace. "Helen, dear, tlit re is a new lookin your face," she whispered. "It is because I rejoice in my soul that your heart is at rest. It is because it is Christmas Christmas, the time of burdens dropped, of old sorrows lulled, of new births aud sweet beginnings. Dear, the Christmas chimes are pealing in my heart. It is the first real Christ mas I have known in years. " And so. her arms twining about her friend, slio led her forth into the radiant day, with all its sunshine beaming iu her face. One minute only had thev gone when, crouching from the dressing room at one side, his face bloated and distorted, the soldier Graice sped swift ly across the floor and stopped to peek through the eastern window. Suddenly back he sprung aud stood swaving at the door of tho anteroom as Helen Dann ton hurriedly returned. Coming from the dazzling glare of the sun without into the dimly lighted room, -she almost collided with the hulking figure before seeing it at alL "Mrs. Farrar Las left her cloak," the faltered. "Will yea kindly move from the way?" " Ton thought I had moved from your war." was the thick. Wir j "but ton 're mistaken, bu dear."

In a clear pool we conld see the green backs of the fish, big and lit tle, but they were not after our flies. The others went np the stream a considera ble distance, and I remained by the pool. It needs two men to land a salm on. Presently I began idly casting, just to try my new 18 foot rod, aud the first thing I knew a fish was hooked. Ho galloped around that pool, jumping out, darting back aud forth, aud I wad ed right iu. After awhile I got him pretty tired. I bad no lauding net or gaff, but there was a smooth gravel bar 40 rods below. Then I towed the niifor tunate fish down there, got him headed for shore and ran straight back 011 the bar. Out he came, flopping souiereaults on the gravel. Tho gut lea.U-r broke, but I threw myself on top of that salm on and clasped my arms around him. He was slippery and strong, aud I could not hold liim. Finally I got my fingers in his gills, reached for a stouo and gave him thn cor four merciless whacks over the head. Then I had him. I was a sight to behold, wet aud bespattered with mud and slime, but I wus too proud as well us too nearly out of breath for words. Frederic Irlund in Scrib ner'a Weight llefore and After Meals. Why is it that a man does not weigh a pound inoro after eating a pound of food than he did before? A little reflec tion will readily explain this apparent mystery. Du: ing tho process of masti cation, deglutition, etc,, certain muscles are brought into active play. Now it is a well established fact iu physiology that the exercise of any muscle or set of muscles necessitates a temporary waste of tissue, aud that a certain amount of carbon is eliminated and passed off dur ing the course of a meal. This loss, however, is tririing as compared with that of respiration and perspiration, both of which functions aro increased during tho operation of making a meal. Tho length of time ono may take to consume, a pound of food makes but lit tle difference iu the losses. If it be eaten leisurely there is but slight increase of rcspiiation tr perspiration, whereas, if it be huriicd through, both aro abnor mally accelerated. Hence by the time the meal is finished the consumer has lost appreciably in both moisture and carbonic acid. The abovo explains, in a rough but clear manner, why it is that a man may eat a pound of food and yet not weigh but from one-third to five-eighths of a pound more than he did before the mcai.
