dually held up his hand for mercy and

"I'p thi road lmt very far from Al
bany there Is a pretty Utile farm that
runs down to the river, and riclit at
the corner of It was a water l. ink. It
happened that on this farm there was
a dark eyed little girl who was the
Idol of all the boys :;lon the road.
She wouldn't liirt with us. Ir.it she
used often to come down to the wnier
tank and p-t little packap-s which
the engineer, who wa a friend of the
family, used to brltiK' down from Al
bany. She was plump and peachy,
with dark eyebrows and Ion-; lashes,
and under them ilie prettiest pair of
eyes I ever saw. There wasn't one of
id who wouldn't have married her
quirk If she'd had us. Hut she was
sort o' reserved and shy and none of
its had nerve ciioiili t" make love to
her. Ail except Jul y. All the uirls
smiled n Johnny and he smiled on
them. He didn't have to see tin: lass
twice before he was head over heels
ill love with her and it wasn't very
Ion.'; bcfoie he made her know all
.ib. nit li. To woo was to win with
Johnny, and ree.iil.ir as his train pass
ed the farm Jenny that was tin little
dame's name was always there to
n. eel. hint. Wo used to chali Johnny
a punt deal over the I'latter, but we
couldn't p'l 1 1 1 1 1 1 -1 out of him. Somr

braUcman. and then he was iluinr- to

him his piod lurk. The fall stretched
way into the winter. I rnm-tnbrr, mid
my. wasn't it brautifiil weather: Voii'd
stand up mi top of a car. and as the
train wound alotii; the river snore mile
after mile, just di'lukiiii: iu the air
and view, lliakiiu is a hard life, with
lots of d.itipT and pretty slim pay.
Hut ihoe days we'd forp't all about
the hardships and everytliiny else.
Johnny was on the same Haiti with
me .and happy as a lark, lliinkiim how
lie would marry and uo up to Albany
M live. I Used to notice, til. mull, that
every once iu a w Idle his brow would
cloud up. as if he was thinking of
something t'l.it hurl him.
"Such weather cuiildti'l last. Ihuiiu'h,
ami when the ci.d came. It came with
a !iiiall. 'I'he thermometer dropped
forty decrees, and a mid. driving rain

snow. We had a b!' train that nlpM.
and with the snow and the sleet find
the cold It nave us no end of trouble.
She parted three or four times piitiK
not more than twenty miles, and it was
cold, danp'rous work slipping ahum
the top senilis brakes or p'ltini; down
to make eotiplinps. Tin wind howled
ami whistled and the snow cut your
face like pil:m tliiuitp'i a hedp'. It
was dark and the lanterns didn't show
plain throuph the snow, and every
thing seemed to p wroiitf. Several
times we thoiipht wo were stalled In
the drifts, but we'd uncouple and send
the engine and two or three curs
through the drift, and then back up
and take the rest of the train tlirotiph.
We wanted to p't thrnupli to Albany,
for the next day was a lay off, ami two
days after that came Christinas.
'Johnny and I fought like heavers
npiinst the cold, and. I tell you. It was
ticklish work. I felt more anxious
about Johnny tiViu I did about myself.
fr I was old at the business and he
was new. and i know how easy it was
for a sudden Jerk to send a man llyiru
down between t lit wheels, lint John
ny wouldn't listen. Ile said he wasn't
afraid, and just then the whistle sound
ed 'down brakes." We were slltim; Id
the caboose, shivering around a dirty
little lire. I had frozen three of my
lingers, and I thought my ears were
frosted, ton. You see the stnliil came
so sudden we didn't have time to get
on any mutlb rs, nml the mitu'iis were
"Well, we climbed out, and Johnny
ran o:i ahead, saving that he was all
right and he'd take the front. The
ears on top were as slippery as glass,
and we hid almost to creep ah f from
one car lo another to keep fr.Vr Ail- J

Johnny's girl lived. Just ut that mo
mem the train gave a frightful Jerk
nnd I saw the engine go rearing in ill j",
and nhout a hundred feet ahead I
saw a lantern swing wildly In the ulr
and go duwu. I went flat on liic car
and hung Micro for dear life. We
stopped In ten or twenty yards ami I
swung orf the car like mad. 'tireat
(rid,' I thought, 'if that was .Johnny!'
"Something made lue feel that ho

I crawled ulieail ft few ems there I
found him, lying all white and still.
Ho wan to.) much stunned to say a
word. We picked him tip and started
to carry him to the house where Jen
ny lived. I saw that the wheels had
gone over both legs- over one near til?
thigh and the other below the knee.
-My, hut he was a game lad. for all the
torture of carrying him up the hill
couldn't wring a word from hlni. We
knocked at the door and said one of
tiie buys hud got hurt that the engine
had juniM'd the track. A white lltth;
f;ice came to the dour nnd looked at
us :t moment, ami then as smm as she
saw lue and my face Jenny shrieked
out, 'It's Johnny!' Hut she didn't
faint or cry, nor say another word.
We just carried him iu and put him on
the lied and she tool; charge of iiim.
One of the boys' rode over I get a
doctor, but when lie came he saw at
once that It was no use. It w.is only
u question of how long Johnny couid
survive the shock. He lay there very
quietly, and finally when the doctor's
examination was Ilnished. he .s.iid: "Is
there any show, old man':"
"I couldn't reply, lmt he knew as I
turned my head away what the .an
swer was. Johnny was quiet for a
moment, and then pulling Jenny's hand

husky voice: 'Utile girl, I want to go

The shores of I In- great Lake ( 'helan.
iu Washington, one of the most pictur
esque and remarkable lo,ie.s of water
in America, abound in game. In some
daces the lake is so narrow that a deer
may swim il. A paper published at
Chelan, at the fool of die lake, tells how
a young man named Alan lfoyee recent
ly made the capture of a deer iu the
Itov. e saw the deer frolu the slmt'i.
swimming nero the lake. Though the
chase seemed hopeless, as he had no
gun w il li him. Hover got Into a boat and
rowed nflcr the animal. He soon saw
that the deer was making Letter time
than he was, but. iu die Language of
yachtsmen, if he could not oiitfisit the
animal, he had some chance of "oiit
So he rowed across the course of the
deer, forcing the creature to wucr.
Thell lie towed so as to cut eff the new
course: and after a while, by hr.-nling
liisl one way and thru aiu'ihrr, lie
came alongside the f riiitetied i rent lire,
and witli a quick movement seir.cl It
by the tall.
Thoroughly frightened, the animal
swam faster than ever, and made
straight for the shore. Koyee got into
the bow of Ids boat and held fast to
the tall; he was drawn through the
water much faster than he could have
Meantime his pursuit of the deer had
attracted the attention of Mr. J. A.
(recti on tin' shore. Mr. (ireen got a
rille and came out iu another boat lo
meet t Ii.-lii. Coming quite near he tired
at till' deer and killed II. eliding llie
spirited chase. It turned out to be a
very large and tine buck.
Wild oats cost as much as ever. In
sp'te of the fact tliat evcrj thing else
lias been greatly reduced In price.
