"I hnvc to work hard. I have a big

widower, died, Ivan adopted his tfou
"I have none; they mIiiiII ho as my
own," lie pledged himself, mid never
fulled In Ihu sacred pledge.
Ivan was a peddler of plus, needles,
yum, and boxe,
An Incident occurred about six
months before Christians that gave
Ivan 11 secret lo keep, but Hie result
of which ho did not experience until
Inter. One day quite a distance from
Hie city, sealed eating IiIh humble
lunch 011 tho veranda of a road liouso
ho overheard two men talking. They
mentioned a iitiuui that caused Ivan
to prick up his curs. It wiih that of

She bellevtHl him, and pule and In

money for Ids fccnlce, which Ivnn re

entire matter secret.
Ivan had forgot 1 en all about this In
cident as time pusnsl on, It was Hear
ing holiday time when ho cmiio homo
from 0110 of his trips with it bug full
of farm plunder for tho little ouch
and a great fat white gooxo. It was
to tdguulUc their Christmas dinner
and was an object of Immense Inter

"lo lay an egg 011," he put It, and the
spirit of tho wagon lufoi'lod all bauds.
Then a queer thing happened. John
lleluisby dropped In several (hues
during the week. He evinced it new
uud mysterious Interest In Ids poor
tenant. Then, Just a day before
Christinas, he brought his daughter
with him. .Mr. lleluisby had been told

She gave Ivan an Intense look ns

however, on Christmas morning, when
Levi burst Into the room excitedly
with the Incredible announcement :
"Ob, father, father, tho goose has
laid a golden egg I"
And there In his hand was the evl
doiuvu glided paplcMiuiche egg, and
Inside of It was found two $1,000 bills,
Ivan VldHl's reward for saving h
young girl from a lifetime of misery,
and keeping Ids knowledge a secret.
The poor, honest fellow wept for
Joy as ho realised how much the great
gift meant to himself and those he
