The Wayfarer By MAUDE (Copyright. 1912. by Associated Literary Pre..) Cecily waa born for romance. She hated anything that smacked of the commonplace. Hence when ehe eaw Nruce Esmond, for the first tlm Bhe believed herself madly In love with him. Bruce was an artist with a leaning toward Illustration. He set up his easel one April day on the edge of a newly plowed field, and proceeded to make a sketch of Cecily's father. Mr. Drake resented not only the Impertinence of having bJmself put In a picture but in being put in one when he was not dressed in his Su day best. So he told Bruce Esmond to go elsewhere for his InEpiratio-t Then Cecily interfered. "Why, father, he paints such lovely things," she said, "just look at those horses." Drake grudgingly admitted that Remus and Romulus looked well, and compromised on a sketch In which, he should be left out. "You can put In the field and the sky and the horses," he stated gen erously, "but not me." Then he went on plowing and Cecily and Bruce Esmond proceeded to get acquainted. Bruce said the conventional things that Cecily was too pretty to be buried in the country, that he was tired of city women with their feath ers and furbelows, that Cecily rested hJm and pleased him all the fascinat ing compliments that men of his class use to turn the heads of the un sophisticated. Thus, Cecily believed herself madly In love with him and If it had not been for the Wayfarer she would either have married Bruce to live unhappily ever after, or she would not have married him and would have felt her self broken-hearted. The Wayfarer came slouching along the road in old clothes, with a fishing creel slung over his shoulder and a rod in his hand. He did not compli ment Cecily at all. He simply asked "What Have You to Say About lt?n for a glass of water and sat on the Etone bench and drank it. He looked very tired and Cecily invited him in. "When father comes home we'll have pupper," she said, "and he's always glad to have company." The Wayfarer thanked her and, for the first time, he smiled. Cecily liked his smile. It lighted up his tired face, and seemed to warm the observer. Oclly sat by him on the stone bench and chatted of many things. She talked most of Bruce Esmond. "You've heard of him, of course?" "Yes. He has a promising career before him." "Oh, I hope so," said Cecily, ar dently. The Wayfarer said nothing. "How long has he been here?" he asked, at last. "A month," said happy Cecily, "and he's going. to stay another month. He wants to get the light of the May moon on the apple blossoms." "Humph!" said the Wayfarer. Mr. Drake was very enthusiastic about the Wayfarer that night. "He wants to board here through the fishing season," said the farmer to Cecily. "I don't know but we might as well let him." "Of course," said Cecily. But when she told Esmond, he raged. "How . can I have any Inspiration with him around? I want only you Cecily." "But you see father needs the money," said Cecily, gravely. "There's the Interest on the mortgages to be met" Esmond loked at her keenly. "I thought your father owned the farm," he said. "He does. But there's one mortgage. And times are bad and the crops have failed." Two weeks later, the Wayfarer, com ing up from the stream, stopped be hind Esmond's easel. "There are Just twt: things you should try to do," he said. Quietly; "jou shouldn't try to n o Q O o a BERNARD paint sunlight on that silver rooU 01 to make love to a girl like Cecily.' Esmond turned an angry face up to Vm. "What have you to say about It?" ho snarled. "Something." said the Wayfarer, quietly, "I know your reputation In town, Esmond and Cecily Is too sweet to be hurt by you." "In love with her yourself?" dc- tbianded Esmond. Terhaps. But that has nothing to do with the case. You'd better pack up your pictures, and run alrng home." "I'll take Cecily with me," said fh ctJier. "I think not," said the Wayfarer, "because when Cecily learns the truth I don't think she, will want to go." "It's a pretty small thing for one man to talk about another." "Not when the other is using the hospitality of a girl's father to ac complish his own ends. I shall tell Drake what I know of your past. He can decide whether It Is necessary to warn Cecily. Personally, I don't be lieve that Cecily will miss you after you have been away a week. When she really falls in love she 'will fall In love with a man." "Like you?" "At least I can offer clean hands and true and steadfast affection." The next day the artist went In town. After his departure Cecily drooped and faded. "Can it be that she really loved him?" the Wayfarer often asked himself. He tried in every way to make her happy. "I'm an old fellow," he said, "but really I know some interesting things." Cecily began to enjoy the walks with him. He did not talk to her as Bruce had done of the beauty of her eyes and the charm of her smile. But he had a way of telling her things that were delightful, and as time went on Cecily began to feel that she was In close communion with a wonderful heart and mind. "You don't paint your pictures," she said one day, timidly. "You tell them." Such a sweet comradeship as it prew to be! The Wayfarer sent to town, now and then, for books, and once there was a box of candy, and at another time a wonderful bunch of violets. "How extravagant!" said Cecily, sr.'ffing the flowers with delight. "But you like them," said the Way farer. One day Bruce Esmond came back. "I have a perfect right to come." he said to the Wayfarer, "I am free." "Legally?" was the question. "A divorce," said Esmond. "Now I shall marry Cecily." The anger of the Wayfarer burst out. 'You shall not have her," he said. "You will break her heart as you have broken the hearts of other women who have trusted you you shall not have her." And just then some one said behind them, "Are you talking about me?" Cecily stood there, looking at them with grave eyes. It was Esmond who answered her. "He says I shall not marry you," he said. "And probably you think I treat ed you badly because I wooed you before I was free. But I loved you so much, Cecily. And he he has noth ing but his money." Cecily looked up at the Wayfarer. "Does he mean that that you are rich?" she asked. "Yes," said the Wayfarer. "But you came tramping along the road like any common trareler." "Because I was tired of the things that riches could bring. I I wanted other things like love Cecily." And so they stood before her, these two men, asking, pleading for her favor. Cecily sobbed with her face in her hands. "Go away," she said, "go away, both of you." But as the Wayfarer went slowly, she cried after him, "Oh, I shall miss our long walks together, and the books." He turned back. "Why should my money stand In the way?" "You deceived me," she said, "and and If I should say 'yes' now you might think it was because I wanted to be rich." "I should think It was because you loved me," he said. From the other side of the hedge Bruce epoke, bitterly, "It's always wealth that wins." But Cecily smiled at him. "He has taught me something that you will never know," she said. "I ask only that we shall be goc-d com rades along the road wayfarers to gether until death parts.' Not If He Knows It.

When she returnei to consciousriess five minutes later sli-a felt the soft pressure of two little hands on her cheeks and heard a child ish voice whispering in her ear: "Margery wants a ride." The little girl was uninjured. When the nurse had pulled the sled in order to clear the track ahead of the onrush ing engine the child had fallen off, di rectly In the locomotive's path. Her small body, however, escaped tho fender and remained untouched by wheels and crossbeams during the quick passage of the engine. The sled, struck by the side of the engine, was demolished. Just as the sled was on the tracks the woman saw the black shadow of the approaching locomotive. The quick jerk she gave the rope to bring ihe little girl safely across the tracks instead left the child directly between the rails. TOWEL SEWED UP IN WOMAN Remained In Patient Five Weeks Be fore Being Recovered by Another Operation. New York. A towel, a yard long and a foot wide, with a red border, was accidentally sewed up inside of Mrs. Mollie Myers when she was op erated 'on in St. Vincent's hospital In November, 1905, according to an affi davit filed with the supreme court by Dr. Benjamin Friedman, formerly of this city, now living In Hungary. Mrs. Myers held Dr. Herman J. Boldt re sponsible and has sued him for dam ages. 7mm V He Recovered the Towel. Doctor Friedman asserts that when he recovered tho towel, after it had remained five weeks inside Mrs. My ers it bore tho label "St. Vincent's hospital." "A few days later," alleges Doctor Friedman, "I met Doctor Boldt, who told me that he had sent the towel to the New York County Medical associ ation as a curiosity, indicating the great vitality of the patient. Mrs. My era told me she was going to sue Poo tor Boldt, and I told bim of this. He said he was Insured against such to cldents and that he did not care." LIKE THE WOLF AND LAMB Inoffensive Creatures Most Unjustly Charged With 8uddcn Attack of Bloodthlrstiness. A man who was caught in the act of skinning a neighbor's sheep, cov ered his embarrassment by declaring that no sheep could bite him and live. The logic of this is equaled by that of the Yankee soldier who once bad a narrow escape from an enraged gander. The men of a certain Maine regiment, which was In the enemy's country in 1S62, considered the order "no foraging" an additional and un-called-for hardship. One afternoon about dusk, a soldier was seen beat ing a rapid retreat from the rear of a farmhouse near by, closely pursued by a gander with wings outspread, whose' feet seemed scarcely to touch the ground and from whose beak Is sued a succession of angry screams. The fugitive was not reassured by the ciits of the gander's owner: "Hold on, man, hold on! He won't hurt you!" "Call off your gander! Call him off!" shouted the fleeing soldier. Neither man nor gander stopped un til inside the camplines, when the sol dier's friends relieved him of his fierce pursuer with tho aid of the butt of p musket. "Did that gander think he could chase me like that and live!" the soldier exclaimed, as he surveyed the outstretched bird; but he said nothing of the baited hook with codllne attached, which might have thrown light on the unfortunate gander's strange actions.
