There's nothing of the problem story in this tale of the colonel and his friends and foes; jast a plain, straight, all the way through story of the honest, old fashioned kind that's worth reading.

I'.it this manner was not apparent in her Itenring to ward old Judge Roiling, v.-liotu she t knew as being of her own e. 1 "I'm very glad you've come, judge." frhe said laugiiiucrly. "And especially rik-ht now. It may take you and Colo nel Todhunter both to miiko our Mary and ywr.c; Tom Strickland behave themselves, sir.

''There they '. are now, looking as if butter wouldn't '. melt In their mouths. Won't you ! go over there for me. judge, and tell ; Tom Strickland to behave himself and I send Mary to me right away? There's no earthly use is Colonel Todhunter going, because neither one of them i would miad a word he says!" Old ' Jodge Boiling, laughing, moved off to , ward the young couple. Mre. Todhunter turned to the colonel. Ton see. I know you like a boo"k. Colo nel Todhunter?' she said, her eyes twinkling. "Too think everything young Tom s-tncciani does is just right, and you'd stand up for him quicker than his own father. And as for Mary, she can twist you around her finger any time. Don't think I place any dependence upon you where they are concerned, sir!" " Colonel Todhunter smiled calmly." "I ain't askin' you to, Mary." he retorted. "In the first place, I approve of Tom's failin' as deep in love with Mary as he kaows how. In the second place, InterferhV In these here sentimental affairs is a mighty ticklish business, and I'm here at this picnic to have a I pood time. I'm a-goin' to have it, too!" ! Saying which, be beat a hasty retreat. But be had hardly succeeded in plac ing a section of the picnic crowd be tween himself and Mrs. Todhunter when a young girl came running along his trail, breathless, and with mis chievous eyes. "Mrs. Todhunter wants yon to come right back to her, colonel." she an nounced. "She's short on men to help her, and she's awful busy. Wants you to come right away, sir." Colonel Todhunter glanced whimsi cally at the messenger. "Ain't that just like a man's wife? She didn't want Judge Bolting when she saw him. Oh. JrlSH-Mty i . !

She was of a different j type, a plebeian beauty, blsek haired, with passionate eyes, full red Iips, a i suggestion of rich animal life in her j movements. .j "You ought to be ashamed cf your- j self.

I only hurried to say j Howdy" to Miss Mary because she had ; just got here. Anyway" and here he , smiled teasingly "I could see with one '; eye that Stam Tucker was just wild j to have a talk witn you." Lottie-Mays eyes flashed. "Stam Tucker shucks!" she cried scornfully, j "I wouldn't wipe my feet on him. Tom. when you're around, axd you know it j But I can tell yon one thing" and here j a note of proud vanity sounded in her j voice "tryin' hard as he is to git Miss j Mary Todhunter to marry him. just : like you are, Stam Tucker loves me more in one minute than he will love her la his whole lifetime." "Lottie-May." ejaculated Tom angri ly, "you mustn't talk like that! Yon ought to be ashamed. You've got no right to couple Miss Mary Todhunter's name" "No. no, that's it!" Interrupted the girl hotly. "I mustn't mention Mary Todhunter's name in the sam? breath with mine. It ain't right you think! Well. I will and I hate her! I hate her!" "I didn't mean that Lottie-May," pro tested Tom. "You know I didn't mean that" But the girl was gone. Hagar-llke, 6be moved with a sort of outcast pride, her pretty bead held high, her eyes flashing. In a moment she had disap peared in the crowd. "Tom," said Colonel Todhtrnter, ad vancing, "you'd better be hurrytn to where Mrs. Todhunter is and make your peace for stealin Mary away. You're in hot water, yonng man." Torn Strickland flushed consciously. "Colonel, I reckon you heard what Lottie-May Doggett was saying to nae?" "I couldn't very well help it, Tom." "Well, sir, you mustn't draw any wrong conclusions from what she said, Colonel Todhunter. Lottie-May's a good girl, so far as I know, and I've al ways felt sorry for her. But she's been brought up under a clond. and it's made her sorter reckless and full of the devil. I don't believe she cares how black she paints herself, and I think too much of her to take her at her word about knowing that Stam Tucker loves her and makes love to her with out thinking of marrying her. That's Just her wild talk, sir." "She's certainly prown up to be a mighty pretty girl. Tom." said Colonel Todhunter. " "And now that you're broached the subject and I've beard what I have, will you let me give you a word of advice?' "Certainly, colonel," replied Tom. "Well, Tom, speakin' plainly, it's this. You better fight mighty shy of Lottie May hereafter, suh. I don't mean any thing against the girl. But she thinks a lot of you. and she J0U know 3,1,1 tlia dangerous situation." a lot of you. and she don't mind lettin' at makes a mighty Then, seeing that the young man was ill at ease ami maybe inwardly resent ful. Colonel Todhunter left him, to his obvious relief. But the colonel himself shook his head doubtfully. "There ain't no big ger fool ou earth, suh." he communed with himself, "than a healthy young chap in his twenties.' with a head fuller of women than a squash is of seeds ami just about as soft as that there squash, too, suh. I don't like to think of Tom Strickland, with Mary on one silie of him. and him lovin" the very ground she walks ou. and Lottie-May Doggptt on the other side of him anil her lovin' him the way she does love him." Even as he thus mused an approach ing figure brought a humorous grin to Colonel Todhunter's lips. It was the nip.nial figure of Captain Sim Eirdsong of the Nineveh light infantry, but wMiout the aggressive support of his regimentals and with dejection In ev ery line. Sim's f.ice was the tragic mask itself. 'fJreat name above, cap'nl" vocifer ated the colonel, nock apprehension in his tone, "what in tlmnderatiou is the in-.tter, suh? You like you'll lost your last friend on earth!" "Colonel Todhunter," said Sim eol- SPREAD ON LEG Formed Large Blotches. Itching Terrible. Ugly Sores Would Break Open and Run.
