XI II. Continued.
The linlMiotir pawed with no tlJ
liifjs of the nihvltig man. After an
other fruitlcKH survey of tlic road, Mrs.
Weston, dolefully Blinking her head,
vanished ngnhi, after once more In
forming me Unit his prolonged absence
vvoh wholly inexplicable. Presently
one of her sons brought my horse and
enrringo to the door, and, tomcwl.nt
leluetantly, I forsook the cool quiet of
the ofilo: to begin the drive to the house
ol ouc of tho patients whom I was
nttondlng during Mr. Hanks' convales
cence from his injury. Miss Gray was
reading in the bliude of tho porch of
the house over tho way,nnd,inhopesof
persuading her to join me, I crossed
the road mid went up to her.
"iveally, I should bo delig'hteil, but
I've promised my aunt to see her safe
ly off," said she, in response to my in
titntlon. "You know she is to take
tea In the 'Ullage, and her hostess is to
rent for her I don't know at just what
"Oh, then there's no hope for me,"
Mild I, grumpily. "Howecr, I shall
"be back In nn hour or two. I'm expect
ing Dr. ISauks to call for my report
of tho en.se, and he may appear before
my return. If he docs, will you kindly
sk him to wnlt for me? Then, too, if
.Tones condescends to drlvo up with
his load of grael, and you happen to
speak to him, please be so good as to
fell him that I should like to see him."
"If you core to wait a little," she an
swered, "we may interview him to
gether. The team is in sight now."
Looking nlong the track toward the
house of the knoll, I saw Mrs. Weston's
horses jogging homeward nt a trot,
which indicated that the wagon they
drew could not be loaded very heavily.
"Where's the drier?" MIbs Gray
asked. "Do you sec him V"
"Xo. I don't," tnlcl I. "Quiet os the
team is, it must lmvc got nwny from
One of the itoys ran up to the ap
proaching horses mid stopped them.
We could see him pick up the reins
from the ground, examine the wagon,
and climb to the seat. By the time
he drove up to us Mrs. Weston, Mrs.
Clark, tnd one or two others had joined
the group, nnd Mrs. Loring, who looked
dow u from the w indow of her room.
"Dorothy 1 Dorothy I" she called out,
"tell me, tell me, has anything hap
pened? anything terrible? Where,
oh, where is the man? Is he dead?
Is he killed ? Oh, Dorothy, I'm sure he
"Don't be alarmed, Mrs. Loring," said
T, saving her niece the trouble of ex
plaining that nobody knew more about
lhu junttcr than she did. "The horses
hae probably staited for home while
Jones' eye was off them. Xo doubt
he'll Iks along in nn hour or so."
She tried to ask more questions, but
no one took the tlmo to answer them.
All of us were busily inspecting the
wagon and its steeds. Tho convey
ance wns loaded to perhaps u quarter of
its capacity. One of the movable slde
iKiards wad gone, but that was the limit
"It's all plain enough," said I. "The
horses oceanic he nesick and trotted
off, very possibly while Jones, not bnt
isfied with the gravel he had found.
Mas piospceting for letter. He'll be
here in time for supper, with a splendid
appetite from his tramp."
"I guess that's about it," cnid Mrs.
Webton, with 11 sigh of relief. "Hut it's
queer, I mustfinv. Might as well count
it a day wasted."
"Which is 11 .sinin Xevv Kngland,"
I whispered to Mhs Gray. "Come,
now, can't you change your mind?"
She hinilcd and shook her bend.
Climbing Into the buggy, I drove off,
wishing her mint's teas and social ob-f-orvuticrhlirj'ophet.utidtryliig'toreslgn
myself to a dull afternoon. The bay
appeared to be unusually slothful, but
I let him choose his own pace, and away
we dawdled toward our destination.
The sufferer proved to be convalescing
satisfactorily, but tho doctor's visit
was an event of importance, and half
an hour, passed before I could get nwny
from the rick room. Then came a slow
progress back to the Weston residence.
As I drove up to it. Miss Gray emerged
from my ollice, caught sight of me, and
called to home one within. A moment
later Dr. Banks followed her, and hur
ried out to the road.
"For God's sake, Morris, come In as
quick as you can," he cried. "There's
been n terrible piece of business."
Iteassured us toDorothyGrny'ssafety
liy 1he sight of her, and therefore ready
to deal courageously with the misfor
tune -of anybody elbe, I Bprang to Uic
ground ind followed Banks into the of
iioe. There on a lounge luy Jones,
Ids face ashen pale, his eyes closed, nnd
great beads of sweat on his forehead;
his breathing was heavy and sterto
rous, and broken by low moans. Ills
right boot nnd the leg of his trousers
hod been cut away, revealing the limb
crushed from the knee down into a
terrible wreck of bono nnd muscle,
witha jagged fragment of the Ubla pro
truding from the skin.
Bank.V eyes caught mine for nn in
stant; boUi of us read the meaning of
the look we exchanged.
. "Xo nllernntlve," said he,
"The sooner the better," I allded.
The senior glanced at his disabled
"TIiIr puts ine out of it," said he,
"except ns I mny manage to administer
tho anaesthetic. Have you ever con
ducted such nn operation?"
"Xevcr. I s.',v plenty of the sort in
my student do,ys, but since then well,
I've never pretended to be a surgeon,
"Nor, to tell the truUi, have I. In
i fact, I've always hated to feeo the knife
' Ubed. But there's no question here."
"Let us send to Boctville for I'ovv
lcr. I've heard he's a clever operator."
, "lie Is: the Idea had already sug
gested itself to me. But it will mean
' four or live hours perhaps more. And
whom shall we send? I'm too crippled
to bo of any use, and you ought to stay
"Mj horso is ready," said I. "Now
for n messenger."
"Why not let me go?" suggested Doro
thy Gray, She had been standing behind
us bo quietly Uiat we had forgotten her
presence. "J know the road," she went
on, "and I think I can mnnnge the horso
"The very person," cried Banks, be
fore I could litter nn objecUon. "Miss
Gray understands the circumstances
better than nny of us. If wo send a
boy he'll muddle tho story so that
Fowler won't be nblo to make head or
tall of It."
"But" I began.
"Now, Dr. Morris, pleoso don't ob
ject," she broke In. "There Is not the
ghost of n reason why I should not go.
I rcnliac what Dr. Fowler Is to do, the
operation he will have to perform. I'm
not n bit nfrald of tho horse. Besides,
as Dr. Banks says, there must be no
delay; every moment Is precious.
Please let me Rtnrt at once."
"I don't like the Idea," I protested,
but rnUicr feebly In the face of her en
treaty. It had coun by this time, to
be hard to deny her anything.
"After lisJ timely assistance to me,"
she went on, "It Is only fair that I
should be allowed to reciprocate, to do
some little thing to prove my grati
tude." "Very well, go, then," said I, shortly;
but In the heart of me there wns 11
vague feeling of relief that she should
so soon repay her obligations to the
mnn from whom 1 certainly had no
good to expect: it was better for them
to be quits as speedily as possible.
"She will round out a useful day by
bringing Fowler here," said Dr. Banks,
as we stood watching her hurry off her
hut and gloves. "Did you know that it
was she who found him?"
"Xo," I answered. "How did it hap
pen?" "Her aunt, it seems, must have been
11 good deal worried about the man's
failure to return with his team, and
to ease her mind Miss Gray promised to
keep 11 lookout for him. At last Mrs.
Loring had to start for the village, but
meantime Miss Grny had caught some
of her aunt's fears, and, as soon as she
was free, off she started on n hunt of
her own. She followed the wagon
tracks nlmost to the house of that lone
some patient of yours, Morris. Then
the trull turned to the southward, al
most skirting the edge of the bog. It
was a queer route to pick out for linul
ing 11 heavy load, and soon she had cause
to believe that Jones had found the
road rough, for in one; place she saw u
heap of gravel which undoubtedly hail
been dumped outof the wagon in some
way. The ground thereabouts is very
low a sort of hollow, in fact and in
the depression she found herself outof
sight of this house. In the other di
rection she could get a glimpse of your
patient's dwelling, but nobody bcerucd
to be stirring about the place. Xot
many yards beyond the gravel she dis
covered Jones, lying unconscious on
the ground, with the ruts showing
where tho wheels of the wagon had
passed over his leg. He came to a bit,
after she reached him, and she wnsable
to make out that he had blipped under
the wheels, and had been so badly hurt
that he was unable to move, and was
forced to lie there and watch Ills horses
wander away from him, nnd finally,
striking the path in this direction, turn
into it and trot off homeward.
"Miss Gray tried to get assistance
from your patient's; but, though she
beat with all her might upon the door,
no answer came from the house. Then,
In despair, she came here. Luckily, I
happened nlong just then. Wegotout
n spring-wagon and brought Jones In
Miss Gray accompanying us and help
ing like the true woman she is, hardly
faltering once, though ,jou can im
agine the job it was to lift him off the
ground nnd into the wagon. Well, he's
been in your office for the last lml f
hour, and what little can be done for
him has been done. It's n, fearful injury
he has. I never saw such a mass of
fractured bones and torn flesh. Ampu
tation is the only hope to save his life."
"What do you consider his chance
is?" I asked.
The old doctor shook his head doubt
fully. "He's young, nnd ought to have n
fine constitution," he said, "but it will
be a close thing for him, a very close
thing, I'm nfrald."
Dorothy came running up to us. I
assisted her Into the buggy.
"Don't use the whip; he'll go well
enough without it," I counseled her
"Bemembcr. he's hard-mouthed, and
"You are trusting in me," she laid.
thnt If you get him waked up too
thoroughly you'll have trouble holding
"I shall remember," she said, with a
bmllc, and then she added, in n voice so
low tli.il Banks could not hear her
words: "I am very, very grateful to
you. You are trusting in me, and you
shall not be disappointed."
While we physicians busied ourselves
in the room In which the injured man
iny, making bucIi preparations as were
in our power for the grim event on the
result of which a life depended,
Dorothy G ray w us driv lug briskly along
the Ba&settvillc road. The task she
had undertaken wns simple, but none
the less important for that fact; she
had merely to cover more than a score
of miles In tho shortest time poslblc.
For many girls of her acquaintance U10
undertaking would have been the
easiest thing imaginable; and with a
good deal of envy she recnlled the skill
bhown by ono or two of her friends on
occasions when the moving cause wns
nothing more weighty than a chance to
display prowess as a whip, Unfortun
ately for her.she had seldom held the
reins over anything more spirited than
tho lazy animals occnbiounlly hired by
her n'Jiit on a specific guarantee that In
no wny could they be started out of a
slow trot, hardly fabtcr than the walk
for which all of them evinced a strong
preference; nnd, although she had
gnlncd a very fair understanding of tht
Idlosyncrnides of the roadster in front
of her, her knowlcdgohnd the drawback
of being for the most part theoietlcal.
Still, bhe had not begun the journey
w Ithout duly considering Its conditions,
nnd, on the whole, they were favorable
to n novice. The road was good, though
here and there very narrow, ns Is some
times the case with rural highways:
there were no sharp pitches of the kind
to shake untrained nerves: nnd the
horse, so far ns she knew, was utterly
unacquainted with the equine joys of
bolting. Xot to press him it first
that was her plan, for much haste
might mean little speed In the end.
For the first hnlf-milc she drove nl
most leisurely, but when she hnd
reached the top of the ridge which bor
dered tho lowlands along the shore she
tightened the reins u little, and felt In
stantly the roadster's response to the
summons. He settled down to the
work before him n.s If lie liked It, with
tho long telling strides which covered
ground with such deceptive ease. A
quarter of u mile ahead was n buck
board bearing two passcngenr and
drawn by n horse which, she snw ns
she came closer, was trotting steadily.
It hiirprlstd her to observe how rapid
ly she overhauled the other conveyance,
even when the driver, after a look over
his shoulder, plied his whip with the
cv Ident intention of giving her 11 chase.
A few hundred yards showed him the
hopelessness of the contest, and. with
native courtesy and perhaps n shrewd
guess that his own wheels would bo
the safer by allowing the stranger 11
generous sharo of the road, he pulled
his vehielo Well out of the way us she
sped by hlin. She caught a look of cu
riosity on his face as she tinned in her
heat to watch her swift progress.
There was just the tinge of excite
ment In the ride to make her forget
for n time the sorry cause of it. The
coolncsrf of approaching evening was
upon the land, although the sun wns
still well above the horizon, nnd whnt
little breeze wns stirring blew in her
face. On she went, now neross n plain,
now surmounting a gentle acclivity,
now winding along n vnlley among the
low hills, but always with the same
smooth motion, ns steady as It was
fleet. An old weather-stained farm
house sprang Into view on her right.
She remembered that It was counted ns
marking the half-way point of the
road. A glance at her watch showed
that, even with her slow start, rIio had
covered u little more thnn five miles
in 24 minutes. With IS or 10 miles yet
tc be traversed this might lie doing too
much; and on the next rising grade
she set herself to the. task of slacken
ing Uie speed. There was somewhat
of a struggle between horse and driver,
but at lost he won. More than once
wns the test repented before Bnssctt
ville was reached, but when bhe turned
Into the innin street of the town her
watch told her that less than 50 min
utes had sufficed to cover the last half
of the trip.
A pretty little woman was sitting on
Dr. Fowler's doorbtep ns the fair mes
senger -drove up. She came briskly
to the gate, and, leaning upon it. lis
tened intently to the girl's brief ac
count of the accident, nnd the urgent
need of n surgeon's services.
"But the doctor's nwny," the little
woman nald. "He lins gone to Trent,
nnd I don't expect him back before
midnight I'm .Mrs. Fowler, you know."
"But can't we catch him by tele
graph?" Dorothy nsked anxiously. "Is
there no way? The case is so desperate.
Isn't there anything we can do?"
Mrs. Fowler shook her head. "Xo,"
she answered, regretfully, for she was
proud of her husband's biirgkal hklll,
"I shouldn't know where to address 11
telegram, nnd there's no train till the
late one. ho is in charge of the case
"Dr. Morris that is Dr. Banks. I
suppose he is In ehurge, with Dr. Mor
ris nssistlng him."
"Umph! Dr. Hanks I know hint.
The other I don't."
The lndy's tone expressed very littlo
confidence in the surgical talent of
"Dr. Banks has a sprained wrist, and
Dr. Morris is a n specialist in 11 n
nervous diseases," Dorothy hastened to
explain. "They united in bending for
"Oh. I understnnd," said Dr. Fowler's
wife, amicably. "It is dreadfully un
fortunate that ho Is away."
"Mrs. Fowler, please advise me." said
Dorothy, earnestly. "The doctors
nrgue thnt an immediate operation of
fers Uie onlylhupe of saving the man's
life. I am sent here for a surgeon. I
And him gone. What should I do?"
"There's nobody else here I'd trust
with a cat's life. Dr. Morbc 1 mean
Morris must operate, or you will have
to wait for my husband's return, lie
can hardly get to Bodneytovvn before
two or three o'clock in the morning."
A new doubt assailed the girl. How
about instruments? Banks und 1
should have them, she supposed, but
there wns the chnnce that we were
unprepared with suitable appliances.
As briefly ns possible she told Mrs.
Fowler what vv.it. in her mind.
"Sure enough." cried the little wom
an, "I don't believe old Dr. Banks has
anything of the sort. We'll not rUk
She ran into the house, returning In
a moment with a case under her arm.
"Here's a set of instruments," said
she. "Take it; my husband has an
other. Get back to Bodueytovvn as
quick as you can. If they decide to
wait for Dr. Fowler they can send word
over this evening. Oh, don't bother
nbout Uianking me; If you ever marry h
doctor, you'll be sure "
But Dorothy did not wait for the
rest of her sentence. A twitch of her
hand had bet the bay In motion, and
she was half a dozen yards down the
street, leaving Mrs. Fowler to ponder
over the obruptness of her depurture.

ALUMINIUM AND ITS USES.
A recent Invention In aluminium al
loys Is Wolfrnmlnlum, discovered by
William Berg, a German contractor of
mumluium military equipments, who
utao Invented the victoria alloy.
The production ot aluminium has In
."icnscd so enormously In the past dec-
ado that the development of working
It has nlso been grci.t, nnd wo find re
mits to-tlny which three yenra ago were
hnvdly believed to be possible.
At the Bock Island arsenal n few
meat cans have been made of stiffened
nlitmlnltim sheets. These weigh but
rlx ounces, while the regulation meat
can of tinned iron for army uses weighs
10 ounces. The only fault found with
the aluminium meat cnu Is that if
placed la a fire without food or some
inch material In it to conduct off the
heat It will melt.
In this country the most promising
alloy Is nickel aluminium which, like
the victoria alloy, seema to be remark-
ably well adapted for castings. In this
form (caRtlngs) It has n tensile strength
of 25,000to3CX000i)oundRper square Inch
with the rigidity of cast lion. Its specific
gravity Is 3.0, while Its remarkable
resilience nnd ductility fit It for use In
many articles of military equipment.
In the German nnd French nrmles
the application of aluminium nnd its
alloys to military purposes has passed
Ihe experimental stage In several Im
portant articles of equipment Can
teens, cups, cooking utensils, etc.. inndc
af aluminium alloys can by means of
stamping nnd spinning be made en
tirely without soldered joints, and how
sver crushed and dented In service cn'i
readily be hammered hack Into shnne.

The object in priming grapes Is to
