It takes a man vlth a head these days to-keep my lady gratiaed." i : "Apples, say the physicians, are nec- { :eiwary to the human system. And 11 :ma7 point also to a higher authority who has said It is not good for man to dwell alone! As for the price, was .there ever an Adam who-thought oi thlsT"': "Not until the baby needed shoes]" agreed; the woman, letting her hand rlpplo.tho water over the rail. "Many • an Adam has-asked his'Eve to fly with htm and after the flight couldn't, buy a curry of chicken wings in a Boston resUurhnt!" The mayor smiled. ^Marriage as it Is .practiced," . ho • commented, "Is a bigger gamble than the board of trade—and twice as interesting." The boat glided onward across tho sleeping wnters, leaving a V-slmped ripple in its ^'uke. Traversing tho lake, Bpillght pulled through a narrow neck that conneiitcd tloose Lake with tho main body of Sylvan. Tho view wj»s cnrhauting—jilnc, cedar and hemlock, birch aij^ maplp varied tho shores and green bushes trailed tUclr drooping (endrlls In tho cool- waters. La Vet'k's cabin came into view, situated ui>on a knoll beside tho lake, a picturesque pile of tho lumberjack ' days./About Its tumbled sides tho wild ' amp'clopsls Bcrnmblod, and rag-wecil flourished In the clearing. Tho mayor drew the skUt upon the shore, carried the girl's easel, box and camp chair to a spot designated and stood by for order.".. "Can you make roffee?" asked JIlss McConnell. as she got out the canvas and prepared to begin the sketch. "Itt these days of the new woman," be said, bantcringly, "mala has come to recognize in a kindlier light the ladylike art of cooking. Fair enchantress. I can make cotfeo' fit for the gods, but woman's dainty hand must pou|r. else it loses its flavor." . "Very woM," she said; "now run away and forget me until 'the coffee Is boiling in the pot" Bedight turned to the forest's fringe the veriest trifle of anxiety in hor voico, "Wo must be going. Tho sky looks like a storm." The mayor ca"nio over to i Miss McConnell and. standing beside her, %azed analytically iiito the west. "I think we will be safer here," he advised, quietly. "Tho storm will break befqre wo can reach the Inn." "But we cannot atay in this ruined but It leaks and the doors are gone," objected Miss McConnelL "Come on, let's be off." The, man.hesltated. . "Don't you think It wiser to remain hero until the storm is over?. We are a.long .ways from Squirrel Ion," eouo- •falod'th'o mayor. *But the 'wind will kick np the'li^es. until We cant, get across for hours," cried" the womnn nervously. "Sometimes." said Bedight, looking squarely at lic'r. "B 'man7 la not as dangerous after dark -M a \rlnd storm by day." "Nonpcnsc!" exclaimed Miss McConnell. "Where's your sporting blood. Let's maUi) a fry for it." Tho mayor turned and walked down to the boat Tlio girl followed and got aboard. He rolled up tho sleeves of bis light shirt and took tho oars. As ho did so, a drop of rain fell Into tho boat. "Really, Miss McConnell," he protested, "this, la unwise.

A glance In Miss McConneil's direction showed the girl abforbed 'in ber work. The mayor picked up a mr.gazlne and jtrclcbed himself upon the sward, beneath a hn£(? .vcHow Wrch. He VKS rttracted from his story a half hour l.T ,;cr \>y a sli.'.tlow* across the sun. Hurriedly Epriiiging to his feet, he scanned the cky. A mass of black v:lxh livid green palcbei and scurrying fore runners of whitej froth lay like a monstrous curtail across the went, through which shot veins of gold ll'.:e roots of mammoth trees. A deep ruij. .ble. has^ in it8| intonation, rolled across t|te sky. warning tho creatures of the earth thai aoon their master would bo abroad la the land to wreck and destroy. The woman, too, aware of tbs danger, sat (Sting spprcheuaively at the disturbed sk;. "Oli. Mr. nedllght," she crk-d wKb "f am neither sugar nor a coward,' sho snid curtly. "Go ahead." • BedlKht fell to his onrs but his inspection of the sky over the girl's head as she faced him was far from reassuring. Tho clouds had taken more definite form and in their center, occupying the front of the great stage of the sky, clung a balloon-like mass of twisting matter. Ucdight looked at the girl apprehensively., as she pat in the Btern of the boat, taking the splashing drops of rain like a Spar-' tan. ' "Miss McConncII, we are going to haro a bad storm presently. Don't you think it would bo better to go back? Look at the sky behind you." She turned her head. An exclamation of surprise broke from her lips. •-•If you think best, Mr. Bedight 1 am afraid I havo been foolhardy—but I'm still satisfied to go on if you are," proudly. A terrific clap of thunder directly overhead, coupled with a roar in the west, caused Hcilight to hesitate.^ Instead of turning tho boat, he headed for the shore, liehlnd them the storm was rushing wjth ten league wings and tho waves llcaped into an action that set tho boat tossing llko'a speck upon A boiling pot. Tho day became a.s >dark as night, save for the lightning flashes. V In a moment the storm broko. Amid tho crash of rending trees, the do- monincal shrietEings of the wind, tho terror of the lightning, the boat sped onward along tho shore, t>no onr gone, tho other useless 4n such a sen. In tho main channel no craft could hnvo lived, but along thn shore down which the two raced before tho wind, the shell flew on the wings of tbe tempest White but brave, frightened but in full control of her nerves, the girl clung!to; tho boat Straight toward the narrow neck of Goose lake, the craft bore like a wind-whipped ^iceboat under a gale. The mayor gritted hia teeth. Once outside the smaller lake the course of the craft woflid fee directly across the larger body of water. He studied the girl opposlte. Did she realize the dnnger? "Mr. Bedight." she spoko reRrelfully. with an effort at bravery. "I—if we go through into Sylvan Jake J—I'm sorry I didn't take your advice. It won't help much now to know that; I've repented of my decision—but I—" ' The mayor interrupted, shouting against tho wind: "1 think we'll avoid It, and surely this must pass quickly." Her answer waa lost In the musketry and deluge that followed. The boat, half filled with water, lurched perilously, rolled like a cedar log and turned turtle! Bedight felt himself carried forward with terrible speed .and deposited upon tbe shore. He shook the water from his eyes. Beside him^ on the sand lay th^ girl, and a rod down the shore the boat hung upon the shingle. She opened' her eyes to tho sound of his voice and the pressure, of his hand upon her heart. Coughing, she sat up on the beach and rubbed the sand from her'face and hands. Her clothes hung closely upon her, showj! ing the outlines of hor body. "The j rain still fell in torrents and ran down (heir necks' In tiny rivulets. "Oh!" she gasped, when her senses marshaled themselves from the bewilderment "I've lost my sketch!** The mayor laughed. "If yoli had been a trifle less fortunate, you might not he worrying about Oh, If Paulino Could Only Sea Us Now," Ljsuflhed Miss McConnell. snaro and all dancing parties pro feminine." "You're horrid!" she scowled. "Wliat aro wo going to do?" "Thcro'.-i- a hut over there. If (hero's any part of it that will burn, wo will •preserve tho remainder and use it ns a Garden of Kden bupplled by a kind providence." Tho woman hesitated. The Garden of Eden stuff in tho morning was nut then so pregnant with pos.^ihtUties. Bedight set off ahead, apparently oblivious to her douht . .
