contrition. "Come, forgive m and ex

They walked to the tirb wber the
machln- st.Kwl. and the girl llatfmed a

beaut lo and wer.
Edith Wentley waa from Nevada.
Her Ufa on hr father'a ranch, the Cir

and an admiration for men who could
master thern. An autoroobll to ber
was nirly a tamed locomotive, good
to amuse the Me rich-
Khe was a.jrlrl all men admired and
many loved. Jtolpb Robben, stock-'
broker, clubman and typical New
Torker, was In the latter class. " '

detested 6 o'clock teas, nut she seemed
out of place among the g-.walplng socie

"Cooje; now,' that's not fair. Do I

It seemed ierfectly natural. He fell lo

When his big French touring car ar

be the first to ride In It. Aa he finished
hi explanation of Ita mechanism aba
gingerly put her hand on one of tha

"That regulatee the speed."
"Oh, I see. It's a sort of mechanical

U waa alone, and bo a turned at

in Westchester, b saw ahead a girl on
a horse. Tb bracing, balmy spring alt
laden with Um perfumes) of budding
tree and early flower and tb notes
of bird, added to itm phyalcal xhila

the bora fitted perfectiy into the
For a few seconds be waa loot la
contemplation and admiration of her
airperb horsemanship. Then he recog
nized something about the poise of ber
bead and the set of ber shoulder and
knew that tbe girl on the horse waa
Mis Westly. He wanted to Join ber,
but tbe combination of Miss Westley
on a horse and blm In an automobile
seemed to him unfavorable, and be
A be wstclied her be forgot all about
bis trip to Europe and determined to
propose at the firM opportunity.
Huddenly her horse swerved violent
ly to the right and broke from a steady
canter Into a wild gallop. Robben knew
Instantly either that the bridle rein had
broken or that tbe horse had taken the
bit In hi teeth. Clearly the animal
waa running away.
The girl retained her aeat In the sad
die, and, while she appeared to be per
fectly cool, be knew that around a turn
In the road less than a mile away was
the bridge across Pelham bey, and the
chance were great that tbe horse in
bis blind wlldness might dash her
against the Iron support of the narrow
structure or carry her Into tbe bay If
she were not thrown before they reach
ed the bridge.
He threw the clutch on to the highest
gear, and the powerful machine, thus
urged to the extent of ita alxty horse
power, leaped forward. It waa a long
chance be waa taking, but the girl 00

Grasping the ateerlng wheel with his
left band, he slid aa far aa possible to

machine alongside tbe bom. Tha ani

kept as close as possible.
"Steady, Miss .Westley," be aald
calmly. "Free your aklrt and Jump
when I aay the word. Steady bow!"
They were within fifty yard of tbe
bridge when Robben threw off the
clutch. Jammed down the brake and,
with a aklllful. twist of the ateerlng
wheel, akldded elost to the runaway.
Bracing himself with his knee against
the dashboard, b let go tha wheal and,
reaching far out over the aide of the
machine, aald. "Come!"
With a quick movement he threw his
arm about the girl aa abe left the sad
dle and, strainlug every muscle, lifted
her Into the machine. Her weight and
the sudden hock threw them against
the steering wheel' with terrific force.
The great machine swerved, ran up a
bank and smashed Into a tree. For a
few. momenta they were both stunned,
but when Robben Bought the glrl'e eye

The term qnartermaatcr as used In
both the army and - navy appears to
lie confusing and anomalous. In the
army it la the title of a commissioned
officer who performs Important and
reeiiousibla duties. In the navy be
Is simply warrant officer, directing
Hiibnnluiiitc duties. In old ships and
under former arrangement his posi
tion was a more Important one, so
much so that he was coniklered to be
the fourth part of the master; hence
the term quartermaster, being prin
cipally engaged lu usslstiug hlin In the
navigation of the ship. Even at the
present d.iy h has chance of the
steering gear aud the men at the
wheel. Other term accentuate tho
fact of the original military predom
inance ou board our w arships in early
d.iys. One of these still exist nnder
th titlo of cuptaiu. There are captain
of tbe quarter Uvk, forecastle, forctop,
