Marlon rode at an angry gallop. The
dust was thick and the heat Intense
even for July—no weather for riding.
U'he girl wore a neat blue gown, and a
wide straw hat shaded her golden hair
and clouded blue eyes. As she passed
the hayfleld, midway between her fa
ther's farm and Jim Bradley's. Jim
himself stepped to the road and motion
ed her to stop. She reigned the rough
hay colt tip with difficulty and pushed
her lover's hand away when ho laid it
on her arm. She gave him no chance

"But, dearest, she only overtook me
on tuy way to town. It was not
planned by either of us, and I have al
ways known her, as I have you. Would
you have me tell her you did not allow
me to ride n mile with a neighbor?
Where's the harm? Vou know whom I
"She’s always after you. She's in
love with you. She"—
"No, she Is not, but If she were ought
you to bo angry with me? And even
then should you Illume her? You love
me yourself, don't you? Conic, dear, ho
reasonable. Lot me lead the brute
home, and. If you must ride mid get a
sunstroke, get It on u safe horse.” His
masterful air of possession Irritated
tier us much as It ordinarily pleased
"I don’t lovo you. I bate you! Come
on. Prince." She gave the reins a little
mIiip, and tin* colt danced and snorted
wildly. Jlin caught him by the bridle.
Hi* spoke with repressed anger.
"Well, love mo or not, you shall get
down! You shan't break your neck
Just to break my heart. You know
plenty of other ways of doing that.
Prince has not been saddled half a
dozen times, and 1 know your father
does not allow you to ride him, though
you are nu old lumd at horses. And
you know perfectly well that Agnes Is
nothing hut a friend. Sin* cares noth
ing for me. She's a nice girl"—
"That’s It .stand tip for her, Jim
Bradley! She told Sue Field that she
would take you from me, and she's
done It. Not that I euro—much. Let
Prince go, I say!”
"1 will not. I shall take you down
and have your father forbid you to
mount him. Sue is only trying to make
trouble. Agnes never said or thought
a thing like that.”
Marlon sat quietly u moment, as If to
obey Ids command to dismount. Her
eyes were wide, her cheeks glowing.
He dropped the bridle and cunio to
reach his arms up for tier. Then sud
denly tin* demon of pride adzed her
again. She gave Prince a cut that sent
him out of Jim's reach with one hound.
"Uoodby," she called. “You are face.
I wouldn't marry you If you—1 would
have to he dead and come to life again
before I would say I love you!"
The horse was off at nn unruly gul-
lop. Jim was angry, but his heart
stood still ns he wutched the little blue
figure riding away so lightly. Untrust
worthy hn he knew the colt to be, she
seemed to have him under fine control.
She could tame auythlug but her own
temper; It woe n way she had. Per
haps her own unruly spirit made the
conquest of others easy. Of all her
•ultors-nnd she was much sought—
only Jim had ever held his own and
refused to bow utterly under the yoke
of her will. That was why she loved
him and quarreled with him—and hnd
always come back to lilm. He was the
stronger, and, while at times she re
sented tils power over her, she also
gloried In It. Tills was tin* worst sho
hnd ever done—defied him. broken her
promise to marry him, risked her fife
to wring his henrt.
He watched herse nnd girl fly from
him over the level road. Then he
shouldered his hayfork, walked swift
ly to her father's place, entered the de
serted barnyard—the men wore all In
the fields—closed the open barn door
nnd waited with set Jaw.
Meantime Marion and the colt were
having a grand rlile past grain lands
and groves and farmhouses, flying past
' meadow and hayfleld. The brisk mo
tion, the wind lu her face, cooled the
girl's anger a little and made her
ashamed. She thought with a pang
that she had gone too far this time—
that she could never make It up with
Jim now she had been a fool.
Then she remembered coming back
. from shopping with Sue and meeting
him riding ptylv to town with Agnes
Sutherland, with whom she had warred
from the A B C's up. Jim had always
had a fondness for her. Her wrath
rose again, and she twitched the bridle.
Prince was tired and beginning to be
a bit aulky and nervous. With horse-
womanfy Instinct she humored without
yielding to him, lot him drink at a
roadside trough and turned his head
As they reached Field's farm she no-
t tlced preparations for thrashing going
j on. Tiie great red thrasher stood wait-
< lug for the angina, and men and horse*
were stnnding all about the conical yel
low stacks. Sue •nne from the house
nnd called to her to stop, which she did,
to the colt's disgust. Sue leaned on the
fence, and the two girls chatted a mo
"You better get off till the engine
comes. Marion. You might meet It.
You’ve no business on that crazy colt,
it Isn't safe. I don't see how Jim ul-
lows it!" Marlon's face flamed.
"What has he to say? I am not en
gaged to him any more. I”—
Sue gasped, then, with remorse—too
late, as usual—remembered what she
had told her friend on the way from
town that day.
"Marlon, you weren't ever fool enough
not to know 1 was joking? What Ag
ues really said was that Jim was so
silly about you he didn't hear what
she said half the time. Oh, May, Pm
so sorry I”
But Marlon did not wnlt. She rode
Prince settled Into nu ugly, obstinate
gallop, swerving and jolting.
They were nearing the crossing when
an unearthly shriek made Marion look
up to see the thrasher engine approach
ing. She urged Prince on, trying to
reach the corner where the road turned
toward home before the machine came
closer. Her hands trembled, hut she
remembered that it Is fatal to lose
nerve with an unruly horse.
Prince snorted, laid back his cars,
hut went on well enough. They were
almost at the corner when the fiendish
shriek came again.
The colt took the hit in his teeth and
bolted In utter terror. Marion knew
her danger and kept her head as they
turned the corner. She let her hat go,
and tlu* wind whipped her long hair
hack U'.io a yellow banner. She spoke
to the colt soothingly, patted his neck,
tried to get the lilt from his teeth—all
lu vain. They were still a mile from
home and going so fast that the mo
tion was as easy as the rocking of u
cradle. If they met no teams and he
kept to tile road all might yet be well,
hut he might throw her. He swerved
at tin* bridge and nearly dragged her
against the railing.
She felt cold perspiration on her face.
It seemed like the end of things. She
thought of i im—nil he had been, all he
was to her, what she had said to him—
and now she—might- never la* able to
say she was sorry, that she loved him—
gel him to forgive her. She recalled a
baby prayer, a little brother long dead,
thought of her mother’s face when they
would take her home. As they neared
tho house sin* remembered that she had
not wooded tin* pansy tied. Everything
wavered strangely in her mind.
As they passed the windows she saw
her little sister's baby face.

Thackeray*. Dlaflanrrd Noa«.
That George Venable*, Thackeray’s
schoolmate, was not entirely responsi
ble for tlie novelist’s disfigured nose Is
to bo gathered from the autobiography
of Sir Weinyss Held. On one occasion, j
when both Venables and Reid were
visiting Lord Houghton, Betd bluntly
nsked his fellow guest who broke

In Indian file through the woods. As I
put tills question to Venables he sud- |
denly stopped and. turning around,
glared at me In a manner that Instantly
revealed the terrible truth to my alarm
ed Intelligence. He continued to glare
for several seconds, and then, apparent-
ly perceiving nothing but innocent con
fusion, not unmixed with alarm, on my
face, his features became relaxed Into
a more amiable expression. 'Did any
body tell you,’ he said slowly and with
solemn emphasis, *to ask me that ques
tion?' I could truthfully say that no
body had done so. My answer seemed
to mollify Venables at once. Then, If
nobody put you up to asking that ques
tion. I don’t mlud answering It. It was
I who broko Thackeray’s nose. We
were only little boys at the time and
quarreled over something and b«d the
usual fight. It wasn't my fault that he
was disfigured for life. It was all the
fault of some wretched doctor. Nowa
days a boy's nose can be mended so
that nobody can see that It ha* ever
been broken. Let me tell you,’ he con
tinued. that Thackeray never showed
me any 111 will for the harm I had done
him, and I do not believe he felt any.’"
