went into the sitting room. No sign of
Luoie or her work. I mounted to her

The room was darkened, liuoie was
sitting up in the white bed nursing the
infant, sweetly and calmly she extended
her hand to me. I went to her I put
my arms about her l kissed her. I
could not help it, for I felt that the child
upon her bosom Was my own. The nurse

his wife about three times a week. He
got cranky and made ud his mind to

and went to bed. The old lady went to
screaming, and as fast as the neighbors
came in sent tbem off after a doctor.
Some of them went in one direction and
some in another, and it wasn't long be
fore the doctors began to congregate.

store. Then he reversed the action of
tbe pump and flooded tbe old man with
water, and, after sloshing him around for
a while same as if he was rinsing out a
cider barrel he pumped out the water
and then flooded him again. Noxon
wasn't ia the habit of taking so mnch
water in hia'n, and pretty aoon he began
