Professor Archelsnus Tlilworth re
tired from the roetrum In tbe little
Tillage hall of Holmwood with a smirk
i and a bow, and hurried his steps, one
behind the scenes, to a table where his
1 wife was counting over the meager
receipts of the evening.
"Welt hare to ctrt out these way
back towns Held too narrow for our
abilities," muttered the professor.
"Att entire andlence, thongh. How
70a did pour it Into them, Arvhelanns
quoting the classical"
1 That was the stunt of the Impressive
looking, liasso-profunclo voiced pro
fessor, ile had a worn, tntlered lec
ture, which proved that every town he
. went to had missed a marvellous com
mercial future through striking a rut
and sticking In It. "Get out of the
rut I" was his loud braying appeal to
towns and Individuals.
The discourse was dreary and vapid,
but Its one essential point took root
with at least two of Ihe audience,
Muriel Balrd, eighteen, an orphan, a
drudge In tbe home of a distant rela
' tlve, seriously drank In the glowing
plctnrea deUneated by the rostrum
fiend as to the wonderful prosMcts
open In the great thriving city for the
young and ambitious, and Muriel long
ed for expansion and Independence.
Across Ihe aisle from her, Arnold
Wade was likewise fertile ground for
the Need sown liy the Ml Hirer. He tool
worked at wuges never Increased In
the next town, hud saved some money,
even enough to enable him to buy an
I automobile, and In a modest way en
Joyed life, hut he, too, left the hall re
solving to "get out of the rut 1"
This estimable young man the next
day made all his arrangements for
giving up his position. He experienced
a rare sense of freedom aa be started
way In bla auto, bound for tbe city
Bfty inilea distant
At the aame hoar, carrying a neat
looking suitcase, Muriel Balrd took
the old turnpike road leading to tbe
nearest railroad town. She was sec
retly glad aa an automobile alowed up
and Its owner sang out courteously,
"Oan 1 give yon a lift, young ladyT
Muriel turned to view her questioner,
discerned that he waa a young man,
blushed divinely and murmured: "I
viu going to Ledbury."
"Right on my way. Why." he di
ed, "didn't I see you si the lecture last
To which Muriel assented, slid Ibis
nslurslly led up to the discovery that
they were "two souls of a single
thought" "getting out of the rut!"
"Well, well," commented the free and
opu Arnold, "ltd is quite coinciden
tal, lie re we are, stsrtlng out with the
world all before u. Supiose you save
tints and railroad fare by May lug right
lu tbe machine till we reach the city.
I tell you, I iiiiiiiI( r baring yoiir plea le
ant company all Ihe way seems like a
harbinger of good fortune. It would
bo pleaaant to keep track of one an
other. Won't you wTtte me M the gen-'
eral delivery when you get settledT
And I'll do tbe saui to you."
And tben they parted wltb a good
honest, hearty handshake, and neither
was likely to forget tbe other for a
long time to come.
Arnold sold bis automobile for a
fair sum and spent a week looking
for an Investment for his little capi
tal. One day he received a brief note ,
from Muriel, telling that she bad found '
work al a delicatessen store.
Arnold started to locate tbe place
thai evening. Inquiry led to It being
pointed out to him acroas a atreet be
had been traversing. A swift automo
bile turned the corner. He Met a
crushing contact aud knew no more.
It was not a long story be beard,
wbea, after a week of unconsciousness,
fever and delirium. Arnold waa made
to comprehend that he had been ten
derly cared for by Muriel and bar em
ployer, a Mrs. Latcombe. who lived
behind the little) dellcatexseu shop. It
waa directly la front of It that Arnold
bsd been run down. It waa Muriel,
who wltne-ed the Mishap, and a
recognition of bis friendly face bad
led to ber carlug for htm aa If be were
aa own brother.
Arnold mended slowly. Oae day
from au adjoining room he heard bis

At lhat Arnold Joined the ladles

"Certainly you tin have the nrst
