“ Is he a good, safe man?" asked Mrs.
"W h o—Tinker? Safe? Well, he's sup
posed to be safe—safe as they make

keeper. "H e ’s ber j up in the woods

where the lower one affords good hotel

companiments. according to distance.
“ It was ton bad that papa had to
get that disgusting telegram which
called him back to nasty old Wall
street Just as he was comfortably set
tled. How mean and inconsiderate for
those people to fall at such a time!”
Bo said Ethel, who. with her mother
and sisters, lamented the trying cir
cumstances in various degrees of im
“ H e will be back soon. In a week
probably.” explained Mrs. Cranby.
"Meanwhile w e must enjoy ourselves
as best we may. It Is too bad, though.
W hat shall we do for amusement? It’s
a duil place.”
"L e t’s have a picnic tom orrow !" cried
Harriet, the second shining light in the
galaxy o f daughters. "That'll be fun."
Her eighteen years had not dulled
her appreciation o f the love o f free
dom. and the woods and waters ap
pealed to her strongly.
Ruth and Maria, the Junior hopefuls,
whose respective ages o f fifteen and
thirteen were as yet undimmed by the
tarnish o f society, gave glad accord t«>
the proposition. To them a picnic em
braced many thoughts of mild adven
ture. as well as a variety o f refresh
ments, which alone "was worthy of
their approving consideration.
Ethel, whose tw enty summers had
brought to her much beauty o f face
and form and a rather undue portion
o f masculine adoration, poohpoohed
the picnic idea at first. Finally sthe
graciously yielded, thereby receiving
much thankful acclamation from Rut2)
" I wou't row five "women, Sackett—
you can put that don-n,” observed Mr.
Tinker when he was approached. “ I'm
willing to take tweg Let ’em have a
couple of boats, and the Injun can row

Tiuker had considerable fault to find,
and be did it loudly, addressing his re
marks to the hotel man, who was on
hand to see them off.
“ Why don't you keep your old tubs
In some kind o f shape. Sackett? I'm
ashaused to taka a lady out in this one
—it's all fish sea'les!” he cried.
"He’s a m ite sour this morning,"
whispered Sachett to EtheL “ I don’t
mind him. Usually he don't say but
Fine lookin’ feller when he's
dressed up. Knows a lot too.”
The girl was gazing at the actfve
figure in the boat, swabbing a w ay with
an old rag o f a sponge.
" I think I'll go In Mr. Tinker's boat,”
she said very audibly.
The man looked up, and tbeireyes met.
“ She’s a stunner!” thought Tinker.
"H e looks like a. nobleman In dis
guise,” mused Ethel. “ H i take Maria
with me,” she called, “ and then the
children won't get fooling.”
The “ Injun,” who was only a tall,
tanned Yankee with strongly pro
nounced features, accepted all burilens
meekly and grinned as "he started with

asked as that gentleman drew aw jiy

“ Yep!” replied the Injun
“ Got a

“ How long will It take to row to the

reflectively as t o s s the lake. I9he won

to half an hour.
She brought her eyes bock: to the
face o f Tinker.
He w a* looking
straight at her with an expression o f
respectful admiration, and bis bright
brown eyes sought hers fo r a moment
and then dropped.
The girl had smiled Into them, a
quick “ I like you j" smile, and the
guide's cheeks burned through the tn.v
nis features wore an almost childish-
look of pleasure and srabarrasnniei .1
Ethel smiled softly at some Interest

“ Trying to flirt with the guide, eh!”
he was thinking. “ W ell, let her go It.

Tinker stopped rowing long enough
to pull off his gray sloueh hut and
drop It at Ills feet. Then he dlp|>ed
his brown hand in the lake and rubbed
his hair vigorously with the eold wa

"Mr. Tin ker,’ observed Marla, “ you
are quite a beautiful looklug mail.
Isn't he, Ethel?”
The guide looked at Ethel and unti
ed—a very pleasant. Indulgent smile.
•'Hush. Maria,” said her sister re
provlngly. with a quick blush. "You
mustn't be personal in your remarks.”
“ You look like a picture of young
St. John," went on Maria iu an ab
sorbed tone. “ W e have it ”
“ I feel honored," laughed Tiuker. "I
know the picture o f which you speak.
In the old days"—he suddenly became
very serious and bent to his work,
sighiug a little as if at some sad re
membrance—"no matter," he added
Ethel was now consumed with curi
osity, and her eyes Inquired of his ns he
looked up. He shook his head.
"N ot now," he said.
The picnic was a great success. Ruth
and the Injun appeared to have form
ed ties o f the closest Interest. It sub
sequently turned out tlmt these two
bad possessed themselves of sundry
delicacies from the basket, the lujun's
pocket being a convenient repository.
“ I'm sure they put in more cake.”
complained Harriet, "and 1 told them
particularly about the apples. They
must have forgotten."
It was all very beautiful in the fresh,
sweet air, with the wild sounds of
birds and little waves. What more con
dudve to a nap for Mrs. Cranby and
small explorations for Harriet and the
Tinker rowed Ethel along the shore
and up into the cool shade of Moose
creek, where the fine old trees and the
limpid water combined to form a pic
ture which would have gladdened the
heart o f a painter iu water color. The
very air seemed to invite confidences
and to Induce low toned and very ear
nest conversation. The Injun smoked
and lounged, and the fair afternoon
was soon over.
"H ave a nice time yesterday?" ob
served Mr. Sackett to the eldest Miss
Cranby as she sat on the piazza the
next morning trying to read.
“ Lovely," responded the young lady
dreamily. "Ob, Mr. Sackett!"
“ Yes?” said her host Interrogatively.
"Isn't that young man—thut one you
called Tinker—isn't he quite superior
to most o f the men about here? He
talks very nicely—1 mean uses such
good language.” went on the girl, hosl
tating a little. "H e was not born here,
"Eh?” ejaculated the old man. "Oh.
well! Let's see! Yes, he does talk first
rate—he's a quick feller. He got some
education when he was younger, an"
he's smart. Remembers everything!
He can talk all right. Likes fun, but
he's real solemn and steady most al
"Y'es, bo was telling me," said Ethel ,
"W hat was he tellin' you?” asked
Me gazed at the pretty, confident face
and smiled quietly.
"D id he tell you about his uncle,"
he went on, without waiting for a j
reply, "and his college days—the uu j
Just charge and how he bore It all
to shield another—how he ran awuy
and was now livin' In this desolate
country, away from everybody, where
he could feel free and Independent?"
"Ah, you know about him, too!” cried
"Yes, 1 know about him,” answered
the hotel keeper. “ Did he tell you about
thoughts and ambitions and things—
how he hoped to go to the city and be
gin over and succeed? Maybe he ask
ed you to be his friend?”
" I think he will succeed," she said;
“ he seems so determined and strong.
I shall be glad to be his friend."
"D id he tell you,” resumed Sackett
with great solemnity, “ that he had a
w ife and two kids over in Brushvlew,
four miles east o f here?”
"Mr. Sackett!” cried the girl, jump
ing up in consternation. “ What do you
“ Just what 1 say—that's right,” an
swered her host, “ and that's the only
true thing in the whole story—the rest
is all lies. He's told that tale before.
Yes’m, he's got a nice little woman
and two boys that be thinks the world
of, and he’s a good guide and a good
feller. I've never known him to lie,
except about this one thing. Wonder
why he does it?”
Ills keen eyes twinkled. Ethel, al
most as tall as he, peered into them
tfs if trying to read his thoughts. Then
she burst out laughing.
"That's right!” exclaimed Sackett.
“ You’re a sensible young lady. Gra
cious, but your face was rod, and your
eyes blazed for a minute!”
“ Where Is he?” asked Ethel. *T want
to see him.”
"H e's gone,” said »he landlord “ He
went up the lakes with a party early
this mornln'. I don't expect him back
for a fortnight.”
"W e w ill be gone by Then," said the
girl. “ I'm sorry. Well, yon tell him
I have a little sense, and I forgive him
It was a real mean trick -tell htni that,
too—but It wasn't a had lesson. Will
ht’ tell about It?"
■ H e —Tinker? No! He'll never lisp
It. and I w on't!" exclaimed Sackett.
■ I don't think 1 will, either,” said

Morn than sixty years ago Prohibition became the name for a
theory advanced In an eifort to overcome such vices as could be laid
at the door of Intemperauce. Prohibition at Its birth was fathered
by men of unassailable virtue. It wag spoken of as a panacea for
all humanity. The intention or motive was admirable and the spirit
o f Its authors was commendable.
