Long ego. when the great city of
Gttcheapolls was a rather small, un­
tidy hamlet In the middle of a plain.
It used to be that a pool of water,
possibly two hundred feet square,
gathered every spring Immediately
hack o f tbe courthouse. The snow
falls thick and heavy I d Gltrheapolls
lo winter; and tbe pond was nothing
more than snow water that the Ineffi­
cient drainage system of the city did
not quite absorb. Besides being the
Jespslr of the plumliers and tbe city
engineer. It was 'a severe strain on
the beauty-lovtng Instincts o f every
Inhabitant In tbe town who had any
vuch Instincts. It was muddy and
murky and generally distasteful.
A little boy played at the edge o f
the water, this spring day of long ago.
Except for his Interest In the pond. It
would have been scarcely worth while
to go to the trouble o f explaining that
It contained no fish. He, however,
bitterly regretted the fact. In truth,
he sometimes Hked to believe that tt
did contain fish, very sleepy Ash that
never made a ripple, and as be bad an
uncommon Imagination he was some­
times able to convince himself that
this was so. But he never took book
and line and played at Ashing. He
was too much afraid of the laughter
of his boy friends. His mother prob­
ably wouldn't object If he Ashed here,
he thought, particularly I f be were
careful not to get Ills shoes covered
with mud. But she wouldn't let him
go down to Git d ies [mils creek to Ash
with the other boys for mud c a t He
was not very strong, she thought, and
It was a rough aport anyway, and be­
sides— she didn't think he wanted to
go very badly. As mothers are usual­
ly particularly understanding, this
was a curious thing.
The truth was that little Dan Fall­
ing wanted to Ash almost as much as
he wanted to live. He would dream
about It o f nights. His blood would
glow with the thought o f It In the
springtime. Women the world over
will hnve a hard time believing what
an Intense, heart-devouring passion
the love o f the chase ca., be. whether
It Is for Ashing or hunting or merely
knocking golf balls Into a little hole
upon a green. Sometimes they don't
remember that this Instinct Is Just as
much a part of most men, and thus
most boys, as their hands or their
lips. It was acquired by Just as la­
borious a process— the lives of un­
counted thousands o f ancestors who
Ashed and hunted for a living.
It was true that little Dan didn't
look the part. Kven then he slurred
signs o f physical frailty.
His eyes
looked rather large, and his cheeks
were not the color of fresh sirloin, as
they should have been. In fact, one
would have had to look very hard to
see any color In them at all. These
facts are Interesting from the light
they throw upon the next glimpse of
Dan, fully twenty years later.
Except for the fact that It was the
background for the earliest picture of
little Dun. tbe pool back of the court­
house has very little Importance In
his story. It did. however, afford an
Illustration to him o f one o f the real­
ly astonishing truths of life. He saw
a shadow In the water that he pre­
tended he thought might be a Ash. He
threw a stone at It.
The only thing that happened was
a splash, and then n slowly widening
ripple. The circumference of the rip­
ple grew ever larger, extended and
widened, and Annlly died at the edge
o f the shore. It set little Dan to
thinking. He wondered If, had the
pool been larger, the ripple still would
have spread; and If the pool had been
eternity, whether the ripple would
have gone on forever. At the time he
did net know the laws of cause and
effect. Later, when Gttcheapolls was
great and prosperous and no longer
untidy, he was going to Anil out that
a cause Is nothing but a rock thrown
Into n pond o f InAnlty. and the rlpp^
that Is its effect keeps growing and
growing forever.
The little Incident that Is the real
beginning o f this story wns o f no
more Importance than a pehhle thrown
Into the snow-water pond; hut Its e f­
fect was to remove the life o f Dan
Falling, since grown up, far out of
the realms of the ordinary.
And that brings all matters down

The noise from tbe that be was never going to be any

tbe one be had just consulted couldn't
possibly be mistaken.
He sat down on a park bench. Just
beneath the spreading limb of a great
tree. He would sit here, he thought,
until he finally decided a hat he would
do with his remaining six months.
He hadn't been able to go to war.
The recruiting officer had been very
kind but most determined. The boys
had brought him great tales of France.
It might be nice to go to France and
live in some country Inn until he died.
But he didn't have very long to think

Dan didn't know it then.
Bushy-tall was not particularly
afraid of the human beings that
passed up and down the park, because
he had learned by experience that they
usually attempted no harm to him.
But, nevertheless, he had his Instincts.
He didn't entirely trust them. A fter
generations, probably the
