But she went only a few steps, then turned ab ruptly round, walked quickly back, opened the gate with a decided hand, mi, without giving herself time ' to change her mind, stepped firmly up the path and knocked sharply on the door. "Almlra Hunter has been let alone lon?er than Is good for anybody," she uid to herself. "She used to be real jctlve In church affairs, and there's do reason why she shouldn't be now. It's uncliristianllke to let her ostracize herself as she has done of late yenrs." Hiss Almlra looked not a little sur prised to see Mrs. Andrews, who had been one of her intimate friends In former years, standing once more on her doorstep, but she suld quite sim ply and cordially: why, Mary, how. do you do? It s long time since you've been to set me." "No longer than since you've been to me." chlded Mrs. Andrews gently, hen she was seated In the cozy din ing room.

She had answered his letter. Yes, she had nnswered It with words that came straight from her heart, and told him of the love she bore him, and that she would be proud nnd happy to be his wife. And that was all. He had never written to her again, and , when he came back to Breutley they had met as though his letter had never been written and answered. She raised ber head wearily and con tinued her search. At last she found a coat that had belonged to her brother George (married now and living In a distant state), and several other gar ments with which she could part, and making them into a parcel seut them with one or two articles of furniture and various other things to the ball where the rummage sale was to be held. It was on the evening of this bright October day that the sale was to com mence. The town had been ransacked from end to end, a little judicious ad vertising done, all the articles collected and arranged, and now, with a sigh of relief and anticipation, the maids and matrons of Breutley stood and looked a moment on the work of their bauds ere they went home to snatch a hasty supper before returning for the open ing of the sale in the evening. Among those who dropped In that evening to "see how the women folks were getting along," was Caleb Thom as. He passed down the hall, exchang ing a pleusaut word with an ncqualnt auc3 here and there and amusedly In specting the heterogeneous conglom eration of donations, until he came to a eounter presided over by the daugh ter of uti old friend, who laughingly challenged him to pick from her stock In trade the style which suited him best She had charge of a part of the clothing and merrily exhibited her as sortment, commenting gaily on each. At Ust she held up a coat In the style of twenty years ago. "See;" shesaid gleefully, "Miss Almlra Hunter seut this In; how old-fashioned it Is! One would think It came over In the May flower and hadn't seen the light of day since; nnd. indeed, it must hnvt been laid away for ever so long, for she-" "I'll take It." Interrupted Caleb short ly. "How much Is itV" "Fifty cents." was the wondering answer. The girl watched him with perplexed, musing eyes as he threw the coat over his arm and made his way straight to the door. She wondered If there was any truth In the gossip she bad heard but hardly heeded, which called blm nn old lover of Miss Hunter's. Meanwhile Caleb Thomas took his way homeward, the coat pressed tight ly to his side. Once in a while be stroked It tenderly, almost timidly it was something Mira had touched. Arrived at his bachelor home, he spread his purchase on a chair and sat down facing it Somehow, nie sight of something connected with ber brought thronging back the old pain, the old question, "Why?" Why had she never broken ber proud silence? With the question still echoing In b'S heart he took the coat and slowly put It on. It fitted well. He remembered that her brother George had been about his size. He ran his baud over it In nn awkward masculine way, patting it abstractedly. Suddenly, near one of be pockets, something rustled. He felt in the pocket but there was noth ing there. Still the rustling continued when he touched that part of the coat It occurred to him that there must be something between the cloth and Ue Unlns and searching carefully he found a rip and drew out-, letter, sealed, stamped, but not postmarked S addressed to himself In a hand a. i nf . thrill along every nerve.

Suddenly, like a flash of light It was all clear to blm. Here was the answer to the why, the long-delayed answer to his letter. She had given it to George to post and George (he was always a careless boy) had slipped it into his pocket and forgotten It, and it hnd worked its way through the rip and lain for twenty long yenrs between the cloth and lining. And, miracle of miracles! It had at Inst been deliv ered to Its rightful owner. He finished the letter, folded It care fully, and replacing It In Its envelope put It back In his pocket Forgetting that he still wore the old coat for now his only thought was to get to Mira, he strode out Into the night and hur ried, almost ran. down the village 6treet There was a light In Miss Hunter'a sitting room, where she sat trying to read. But she could not concentrate her thoughts upon her book; they would turning again and again to Ca leb Thomas. Suddenly there was a step at the outer door, the latch clicked sharply, and someone stepped toward the Inner room. Then Caleb Thomas stood be fore her. "Mira!" he said simply, "Mira!" Miss Hunter started to her feet, pale, trembling, speechless. Caleb fumbled In the pocket of the old coat and drew out the letter, ber letter, so old and yet so new. "See, dear," he said, "I found It In the coat you sent to the rummage sale and which I bought because you had touched It Oh, Mira, say that you mean It still. Say that you will" He stopped suddenly, for with a great cry of joy she swayed forward and would have fallen but for the hun gry arms which caught her and drew her home to -Us breast at last Farm and Home.

THE FORT HALL INDIAN RESERVATION $ rrpHE Fort Hall reservation Is not II able ground la the annals of the West Within what are Its present boundaries, Nathaniel J.Wyeth in lSi built the original Fort Hall, an Indian trading post, and on August 5 of that year, at sunrise, raised the United States flag over hit fort and stockade. Prior to this time Fort Leavenworth, on the Missouri river, had been the frontier post of the United States, and the building of a substantial fort midway between that r'.ace anc. the mouth of the Columbia river, was a most Important event It signified occupation. All that region was still debatable ground and this raising of the flag had an Im portant Influence In ultimately fix ing tbe dividing line between tbe do- RAISING THE FLAG millions of Great Britain and of the Uclted States In the Northwest The winter prior to the building of Fort Hall, Captain Bonneville and his coiiipany of trappers and hunters had camped on the Portneuf plains, near wheie Pocatello now stands, and bunt ed over a wide expanse of territory. The bold captain, however, was In truth only a bon vlvant and voluptuary In a coarse way and preferred to lord It In tbe wilderness with a troop of wbl'e and red savages at his heels and a new squaw to wife every fortnight, to submitting to the restraints of civ ilization. Wyeth, however, came Into the wil derness with serious purposes and picked the site for his trading post with care. The position for defense was admirable, the stream preventing epproach, practically on two sides, and the other sides being free from that cover c necessary to the Indian when pitted with his bow and arrow against the w hite man.

All at once a man reached the King's side In his regular turn, shot out of the Hue, gripped the King's band with a bearty grasp, aud fairly shouted, "Why, Dave, old man, how are you?"
