All his pent-up wrath burst forth In ai sudden explosion, Even as a hand-grenade, that scat-' ters destruction around it. Wildly he shouted, and loud: "John Alden! you have betrayed me!

But when he came at length to the, words Prlscllla had spoken, Words bo tender and cruel: "Why I don't you speak for yourself, of ,-r sinuous way. Chafing and choking with rage lika cords were the veins on his tem ples. But In the midst of his anger a man appeared at the doorway, Bringing in uttermost haste a mes sage of urgent importance, Rumors of danger and war and hos tile Incursion.-: of Indians! Straightway thv Captain paused, and, Father -who seeth In secret. Meanwhile the choleric Cfaptain strode wrathful away to the coun cil. Found It already assembled, impar tlently waiting his coming Men in the middle of life, austere and grave In deportment. Only one of them old, the hill that was nearest to heaven, Covered with snow, but erect, the ex cellent Elder of Plymouth. God had sifted three kingdoms to find the wheat for this planting, Then had sifted the wheat, as the living seed of a nation So say the chronicles old, and such 1 without fur.her question or par ley. Took from the nail on the wall his sword with its scabbard of iron, Buckled the belt round his waist, and, frowning fiercely, departed. Alden was left alone. He heyd the clank of the scabbard Growing fainter and fainter, and dy ing away in the distance. Then he arose from his seat, and looked forth into the darkness, Felt the cool air blow on his cheelt, that was hot with the insult, Lifted his eyes to the heavens, and, folding his hands as in childhood. Prayed in the silence of night to the Is the faith of the people! Near them was standing an Indian, In attitude stern and defiant, Naked down to the waist, and grim and ferocious in aspect While on the table before them was lying unopened a Bible, Ponderous, bound In leather,' brass studied, printed In Holland, And beside it outstretched* the skin of a rattlesnake glittered, Filled, like a quiver, with arrows a signal and challenge of warfare, Sueklatf th* bait 'round hit waist- Brought by Ihe Indian. uui apeaRn.g wit) arrowy tongues ol defiance.

Thereupon answered and said the ex cellent Klder of Plymouth, Somewhat amazed and alarmed at this irreverent language: "Not so thought Saint Paul, nor yet the other Apostles Not from the cannon's mouth were tlie tongues of fire they spake wi Lb .5 The common cares of the household. But unheeded fell this mild rebuke on the Captain, Who had advanced to the table, and ~fgice thus continued discoursing: Then from the rattlesnake's skin, with a sudden, contemptuous ges ture, Jerking the Indian arrows, he filled it with powder and bullets Full to the very jaws, and handed it back to the savage, Saying, in thundering tones: "Here, take it! this is your answer!"

In the end one proves satisfactory, the other becomes a nuisance. Why? The satisfactory engine is one that is carefully built, and thoroughly tested. Thorough tenting takes time and costs money. It means careful adjustment under trying conditions. It is an expensive process, but a necessary one if the finished engine is to be dependable. I Gasoline Engines Are Thoroughly Tested No engine leaves the factory until it has proved itself thor oughly dependable. That is reason enough for buying an IHC engine. It is a good buy because it is dependable—it is dependable because it is thor oughly tested. If you want en gine satisfaction for years to come go to the local dealer and buy an I gasoline engine.
