"Oh, that l Well, a lady standln' alongside of me In the bank she, hand- ed in a check and the banker he said to her, 'What denomination?' and she says sort of snappy, 'Well,' she says. 'I'm a Presbyterian, but I don't see what business it is of yourn,' she says." The laugh in which they Joined over this yarn seemed to estabilsh between them more confidence. Mr. Schwenck- ton, always warm-hearted, was sorry he had been feeling so suspicious of a fellow man and tried to atone by being as friendly as possible. "Was you ever to New York, Mis- ter ?" "Yes." "That's a place I never seen. But my brother he was always set on seein' this here New York oncet, that you can read so much about in the papers. So at last his missus she says to him, she says, 'Pop,' she says, you're gettin' on In llfe and if you don't go soon to this here New York, you'll be too old to go.' So, then, he said he'd go oncet. So she helped him get ready and start off. 'Now, mind you, write,' she says to hlm, 'and tell me how you like it.' So after a couple of days she got such a pitcher post card from him and he'd wrote on it, 'Mom, YI, yi, yl, yll Pop.'" Again their Joint laughter seemed to bring them sympathetically close. Since leaving the lighted town, the road had been very dark, for the night was cloudy and starless. "Where do you want out, stranger?" Mr. Schwenckton presently inquired. As he spoke, he took his hand from the steering wheel to have a glance at his watch--and as he did so, the man beside him gave an uneasy start. With a shock of some horror, Mr. Schwenckton's fingers found an empty pocket where his watch should have been l Instantly he stopped his car and Jerked out his revolver. "Now, then, you hand out that there watch and then you run for your lifel" he shouted. The man obeyed with alacrity, thrusting the watch into the farmer's outstretched hand, leaping from the car and disappearing in the blackness of the road. Mr. Schwenckton, greatly shaken by so narrowly esc.aplng being man- handled by a thug, his soul heavy with sadness at the desperate wickedness of man, went on his solitary way, musing on his own folly in having let his kindness of heart get the better of his prudence. "It ain't safe to take up strangers these days--that it ain't l And me, I was always too trusting that way I Well, this here's certainly a lesson to reel Be kind to your fellah-creatures, yes--up to the danger point. That's all the further a fellah darst be a Christian these daysl" His despair over the perfidy of our human nature deepened as he reflect- ed upon the "gentllity",,of the thief: his "nice" voice, his "educated" speech, his "polite manners'what with his "Beg pardon," "Thank you very much--" "A slick one, he was I I can't never no one's appearances agalnr' thought Mr. Schwenckton with a sor- rowful shake of his head. ,'That's the worst harm a crook does--he spreads abroad a mistrust of man made in the image of Gawd I" Fifteen minutes later Mr. Schwenck- ton, usually the most placid of men, confronted his family In the kitchen, reel That's what I done l" "Ach, Pop l" Nettle gasped In mln- gled terror and admiration.

And he dldl With that there rewolwer of mine in his face, he done what I top "him and pretty quick about It tool Yes, and I guess he's tannin' yet !" "Yes, well, but," Susie " stolidly spoke to him over her shoulder, "you didn't take your watch along. You let it at home. You forgot It. There it lays." She thrust her thumb back- ward toward a small shelf which held a convenient comb and brush for fam- ily use. Her husband stared at her incredu- lously as she calmly rocked her sleep- Ing infant--then, desperately hoping to prove her words false, he fearfully drew from his pocket the watch he de- manded from the stranger, and slowly, reluctantly, he let his eyes fall upon it. It was not hlsl Such a watch it was as he could never hope, nor even wish, to own. Gold, Jeweled, initialed. In a stride he stood before the shelf and beheld his own accusing watch. "I was sayin' to Nettle," said Susie "that you'd be awful put out at gels' without your watch along." "And I never oncet missed lt I" the wretched man murmured. "But--why, my landsI" faltered Nettie, "this here's got an awful look! like as if you'd held that there man up and stole his watch, Pop!" "And I don't know who It is to give It back!" Mr. Schwenckton's voice was agonized. "If I never find him, it'll make me feel awful conscientious tO keep his watchl Yi, yl, yiV' he shook his head and began agitatedly to pace the length of the kitchen. "Oh, you'll have no trouble finding him, Mr. Schwenckton," said Meely encouragtngly. "He'll of course report to the police and they'll easily trace yOU up." "Yes, and arrest me for a thief yet !" exclaimed Mr. Schwenckton. "I'll tell youW cried Meely. "You report to the police, Mr. Schwenck- ton, and tell them of your mistake-- and that you want them to lind the man. That will sa*e you." Mr. Schwenckton stopped In his agl- :ated walking to and fro, and looked at Meely admiringly. "You're got the head on you, Meelyl I didn't think that far myself.

"Delay may be fatal l" said Meeley anxiously. "You must report it before he does. He has had a good deal of time already--all the time you've been home unloading your car and putting it in the garage---and the time you've been in the house--" "Yes, well, but I don't think he'll be reportin' it wery soon--I started him on a good run and I guess he's still runnln' l" It was at this instant that they were all startled by a rap on the kitchen door, and before anyone could answer it, the door opened and a wet, be- draggled and very tlred-looking young man almost staggered Into the room, closing the door behind him and lean- Ins against it heavily. (TO B CONTINUmD.) Rules That Govern Kinship of Cousins m answering a correspondent's query, "What relation are the chil- dren of first cousins to each other What relation to me is my first cou- sin's thUdS" the Pathfinder Magazine says: "Reckoning cousin relationships is simple if you start out right. A cou- sin is one collaterally related by de- scent from a common ancestor, but not a brother or sister. Children of broth- era and sisters are first cousins" to one another: sometimes they are called cousins-german, own cousins, or full cousins. The children of first cou- sins are 'second cousins' to one an- other; children of second cousins are third cousins to one another, and so on. The child of one's first cousin is a first cousin once removed; the grandchild of one's first cousin is a first cousin twice removed, apd so on. Confusion sometimes arises from t custom of some people who speak lt the children and grandchildren of their first cousins as second and third cousins, respectively, but the practice is only local. he correct and almost universal rule fffr reckoning cousins Is as we have given It" Taste and Invention For generations past architecture has been so overladen with extrane- ous matter that many authorities ac- tually preach that In this branch of art it is in bad taste to invent. Cor- rect architecture, they say, consists merely in reassembling borrowed forms. All of which is palpably ab- surd. If the Greeks had thought so there never would have been any Greek art.
