The two men were by this time thoroughly
aroused to the danger of their position, and
longed for daylight to appear. By this time
the snow was falling thickly, and was being
whirled hither and thither by tneever chang

started out lu search of their animals in tbe
faca of the awful blizzard, determined to
leave tbe country at all hazards. Their prog

When the storm started the rtock started

A HERMIT'S OATH.
Tbe M tbat a aamsuar Boarder Worked
la tha Life of a Otnsa Mas.
Way back In th early thirties there was
settled a little village not far from Atlanta,
which has sukw grown to be on of tbe most
prominent of Georgia's smaller cttiiai. Among
th first families to make their bom in th
nw town were those of Mr. Herudon, who
owned a large rk plantation near Savannah,
and a Mr. Lyle, who naovad from the blu
grass regions of Kentucky. These families
settled on neighboring lota, and from that, as
well as th fact tbat they were all strangers
In a straug place, there grew up a strong
friendship between th two boaseholiia, Th
beads of the families ofteu talked together
and consulted over matters of business, while
tbe children played and romped and sent up
their merry shouts as they ludulged In tbeir
lu the Herudon family there were five chil
dren three girls and two hoys. Tbe elder of
tbe boys was William Fletcher Herndon, a
bright, manly little fellow of about li years.
Only two childreu bad been given to Mr.
Lyle and his wile. Of these, one was a little
boy, while the other was a beautiful lU-year-old
girl, with chestnut gold hair, large brown
yea aud a beautifully rouuded face, and on
her cheeks was th ruddy glow of color that
happy life and plenty of good exercia will
impart to a child. 8h was a suubeam of
girl, and no on bid fairer to make a prtttiar
wutnan than did Dorm Lyk.
It was no wonder, then, that, being thrown
together as they war, thar-e sprang np a
caddish love on tha part of William Herudon
for Dura, and, as th boy was handsome and
bright, there is nothing Strang in th fact
that th girl returned that lore.
Time went on. Tu ooegrew to be a young
man of IN), good looking, clever and accom
plished, but a farmer, good a anvbody, but
working man, while th other merged Into
young lady of 18, Uta beauty of childhood
belne brought oat Basra clearly and distinct-
ly and ovule even more heautifui vy we ma
turity of womanhood. The fancied love of
tbe child! en grew in reality with these two;
all th vi lage knew of the affair, and it was
conceited tbat tbey would be married. But
fata bad decreed otherwise.
It was in the summer of 'S3 that a richly
J passed st -anger mad bis appearance at th
noma of t m Lyles and sought board. Thar
was a spa e room in the house, and good mo
ther Lyle with her eye to business, agreed to
take the Tangt-r in. There sprang up an in
tiraavy bttweeu Dora Lyle and the stranger,
but no on siMpected a lore affair, and time
passed on until th day arrived when Will
Herndon itttd Dora were to be married.
It was bright September day, when the
sun had ( one down in all the beauty and
splendor f an autumnal sunset, and tbe
shades of night had fallen about tha world,
that those of tbe citizens of the little village
wbohadten invited to tha wedding began
to assemUe at the Lyle residence. Will,
happy at heart, and full of tha inspirations
of a new I fe opening before him, hastened to
the house of Li promised bride to claim her
as his owi . But there was somethin g wrong.
No bride met his coming, nor could she be
found an .-where. Quick and eager search
was made for her, but In rain. Then, too. It
was discovered tbat the stranger boarder
bad disap; wared also. It took but a short
while for be rumor tbat Dora bad left Will
for tbe st? lish summer boarder to gain circu
lation and credeuee among the guests. This
was found true, for the next day a letter was
received f -om the man, stating that be and
Oora had beeu married In a neighboring
town the night before, and were then on
their way to a distant part of tha state,
where the .- would make their home.
Poor Bill! It seemed a if the shame and
mor till oat on and tbe loss of Dora would
drive bin. mad. He acted as a crazy
man, and aking a picture of tbe girl, which
be bad ir his room, he would sit down for
hours at a time looking at it and crying like
a child, teveral days afterward he called in
a number of friends, and in their preseuce
signed thir oath:
I, Will am llm.i.tn, do si.lemulv swear
that from this day I sliuii neter associate
w ith man v woman again : and I saear, als.,
tbat, if ev t I hear of Dora Lyle having
been done auy harm by auy one, I will
bunt down the person who is guilty of the
act and wi 1 kill him as I would a venomous
reptile. Sj help me God."
A Strang e oath that for a man to sign, but
Bill signed it, and the same day be went off
to the mo in tains and commenced work on
tbe hut wlere was to be his lonely home, and
began his strange Lfe of seclusion from the
world, fining from every one, and dead,
though living, looking upon every visitor as
a ghost of he past haunting him an.l making
his present all the more miserable. Sun
