Cecily waa born for romance. She
hated anything that smacked of the
commonplace. Hence when ehe eaw

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
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
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
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

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
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
"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

money," said Cecily, gravely. "There's

thought your father owned the farm,"
"He does. But there's one mortgage.

said. Quietly; "jou shouldn't try to

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-

"I'll take Cecily with me," said fh
"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

lieve that Cecily will miss you after

she really falls in love she 'will fall

"At least I can offer clean hands
and true and steadfast affection."

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
Such a sweet comradeship as it

town, now and then, for books, and
once there was a box of candy, and
at another time a wonderful bunch
"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

she cried after him, "Oh, I shall miss

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

LIKE THE WOLF AND LAMB
Inoffensive Creatures Most Unjustly
Charged With 8uddcn Attack
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.
