All orders promptly attended to. The Fourth of July comes in midwinter south of the equator, which explains why the passengers on the deck of the big ship Petrel, from San Francisco to Melbourne, drew their wraps closely about them on the evening of the day they would have at home celebrated with firecrackers and feasting. Among these passengers was the Thurston family, late of New York—father, mother and four children. A girl baby was the youngest of them; then came seven-year-old Tom, and after him a sister and brother almost grown up. Mr. Thurston owned real estate at Melbourne, and he had decided to live there in the future. Just after the brilliant stars came out Tom saw several muffled up men with big bundles under their arms hurry stealthily to the bow of the vessel." This mystery was almost instantly explained by a hissing roar and the upward rush of a skyrocket's streak of light. Then twenty sturdy sailors' voices started that song dearest to every American patriot's heart, "My Country, 'tis of Thee." By the time they had finished the first grand verse every American on board was at the bow of the ship singing with them. . Though home was 18,000 miles behind, it was still the glorious Fourth. After this first song the captain moifet-ed to the bridge with a rolled paper injiis hands. All sounds were hushed. burly bo^wain the and every one knew thai itfwaS theg! charter of freedom. "I am about to read to you the Declafa tion of Independence," said the captain in a voice husky with emotion. "There are many of us here to-night who may never .hear these dear words again." The cheers that came after he had finished had not begun to die away when high and clear above them rose a pure soprano. The cheers stopped, and all listened as Mrs. Thurston sang "The Star Spangled Banner." Tom stood at her side, and her soft hand passed caressingly over his hair as she sang. When she ended the first verse, she looked down at him and said: . i "Sing with me, Tom." After that his sweet, childish piping joined her magnificent notes. But the last words of the song were scarcely finished when tears that glistened in loving memory of home and country were frozen on pallid cheeks by the hoarse and awful cry of "Fire! The ship's on fire!" Brave men worked with the energy of despair, but the carelessness of a sailor had done its work too well. Before dawn eight boats were pulling away from the blazing hulk of the Petrel. In vain Tom called for his mother> With the first alarm she had told him to stay exactly where he was while she ran below to get his little sister, and he had tried to obey her injunctions, but despite his protests he was taken away before she returned and put in the first boat to leave the ship. When morning came, but three of the boats were in sight, and in none of these could any member of the Thurston family but Tom be found. A few days later rough weather parted these consorts, and the boat in which Tom was as tenderly cared for as possible was alone on the Pacific. The horrors of thirst and starvation that followed quickly found victims, but Tom, wan, pale and most of the time quietly weeping, lived on, though in his sorrowful little heart he really wanted to die. All the boat's crew loved him, and as long as there was any to divide, divided had never heard before, but he eagerly seized the gourd of milk she held to his lips and understood the language of her tender actions. He was soon dressed in the rude skins worn by his savage rescuers and before many weeks had passed began to comprehend much of their talk. The woman who had been so kind still watched over him with jealous care. She had lost her own little black . son the day Tom had been brought into camp, and in spite of angry protests and fierce looks she had claimed this white boy for herself, declaring that their god had sent him to her in answer to her prayer. As she was the wife of one of the big chiefs the child was given to her. Months passed, and Tom became almost as one of the tribe. Then came a famine such as the oldest chiefs had never known before. Many were the envious glances cast at Tom's plump, sturdy little figure, and his foster mother became more watchful than ever, One night as he lay asleep she touched him on the shoulder. "Come," she whispered, and as Tom sprang lightly up she placed a finger to his lips. Then taking him by the hand she led the way through the bush. Finally, when they were almost ex hausted by hunger and fatigue, the slender wire of one of the telegraph lines that stretch across the Australian wilderness was seen on strong poles reaching high above the stunted trees. The woman gave a cry of delight. In an indistinct way she knew what the wire was. She had seen one once before and had been told by her superstitious chief that through it the white men talked with their God. She determined to try to talk with the white man's God herself—to try to get him to send after this little one whom she loved so well and for whose safety from her hungry tribe she had worked so hard She prostrated herself before the pole and prayed for the boy's deliverance all that day and most of the night. Then it occurred to her that if she placed her lips close to the wire itself the white man's God would surely hear and answer. Before she began the climb up the pole she fashioned a rude sling out of her skirt to hold her at the top while she talked to God. With this in her teeth she started. Higher and higher up the bare pole she crawled, clutching it desperately with arms and legs, stopping every foot to rest, praying all the time. Great splinters tore her skin, and a little stream of blood from... her wounds ran >le.- -'She didnot mind. Her absorbM aU*^ ttother love. At last, almost fainting, she reached the top. With one trembling hand she put the sling over it so that the bar holding the wire would keep it from slipping. Then, with head drooping and relaxed muscles, she hung there for awhile, too weak even to pray. When her strength had partly returned, she began, and no prayer from the finest carved pulpit ever was more fervent. Noon came without any sign of rescue from heaven or earth. Still she clung there. The shadows began to lengthen. Her limbs had stiffened from her cramped position, and her mind was crazed by exhaustion and disappointment. Her prayers changed to curses. The white man's God scorned her and scorned her boy. She grew frantic with wrath and pounded the pole and wire with her fists as she hurled anathemas at them and their God. Hanging by a string about her neck was a boomerang of hardened wood. With it she struck and shattered the glass insulator. Then she pounded the swaying wire. She twisted it and bent it in her fingerB. She bit it with her teeth. Finally she broke it. Then she slid to the ground and groveled on the grass in an ecstasy of grief and anger at God and man. She was recalled to her senses by a piercing cry from Tom. His weariness had changed to the delirium of hunger fever. She gathered him, struggling and screaming, in her arms and held bim until the paroxysm passed. Then she made a soft bed of leaves for him and searched for food. She only found a few berries until noon the next day, when greatly to her delight she discovered the nest of some wild fowl with eggs in it. These she forced Tom to suck. She ate nothing herself. What Tom rejected went untouched. She thought only of him. For three days this went on. She was getting constantly weaker. When the morning, of the fourth day broke, she could only crawl on hands and knees in her search for berries. That day linemen sent from the nearest telegraph station, qiany miles away, to find and repair the the food and water with him.

Main St., Thompsonville, and worse waxed the hours for the little company. Every day some on© died.. At the end of three weeks only Tom and two others were left. When morning brOlie on twenty-second day after the desertion of the burning ship, land was sighted. As they neared the shore long canoes filled with natives came out to meet them. The savages lifted Tom's oomrades from the bottom of the boat He never'saw them again. One great, strapping fellow threw Tom over his shoulder, and overooiflae with thirst and exposure the little fellow fainted. When he revived, a kindly black face was bending over him as lie lay on the grass beneath a spreading The words the native woman spoke Tom woman and white child—lying at the foot of the pole. They gave them food and heard the woman's story. Touched by it, they offered to take them both back with them, but the woman would not go. "Take him," she said; pointing to Tom, take him to his people. He will be better there without me. Give me a little food to keep breath in my body, and I will go back-to my tribe. I have saved him. My life is full of joy." As they bore the boy away Bhe gazed after them wistfully until the bush bid them.

He ceased to think it strange that he should tend sheep and swelter beneath the shade of a tree on Christmas when in his old home there had been cold and snow and ice. Then another change came. His master died, the sheep were sold, and he was turned away from the station by thenew comers. A month later, ragged, worn and hun gry, he was wandering about the streets of Melbourne. For weeks he kept body and soul together by begging and doing what work he could find. Winter was coming, June merged into July, and the southern cold set in. Barefooted and clothed in rags, Tom was trying to sell papers. As night approached, the air grew sharp and biting. The stars came out clear and beautiful. Suddenly through the cold, crisp air a rocket shot upward. Tom rubbed his eyes. A flood of recollections overpowered him. He sprang forward in the direction of the great trail of light, but soon he stopped. "I guess it must have been a dream," he said to himself aB the jumbled memories of the past confused him. Again the sky was lightened, and some passerby remarked to a friend: "Those crazy Americans celebrating the Fourth of July "The Fourth of July," murmured Tom, and started eagerly up again. Swiftly now his bare feet bore him to ward the light of the fireworks. By and by he stood before a great brown building with marble steps, and heard the sound of music. A woman's voice floated out on the night air, a voice that thrilled Tom to his soul—he could not tell why. It seemed to the little wanderer as if an angel were singing. With trembling steps he crawled up the great stairway and sat on the doorstep listening. Again the voice broke the stillness, this time with the glorious notes of ' 'The Star Spangled Banner." Tom drew his hand over his eyes. It all came back to him— that Fourth of July night on the ship so long ago. The verse ended, but the piano played on as though some one were to go on with the second verse. Then a strange thing happened. A sweet, piercing, boyish voice swelled on the night air, and floating through an open window reached the ears of the happy gathering within. Never, they thought in their astonishment, had they beard so sweet a boyish tenor. The butler, after the unexpected voice had stopped, opened the'door to ask the silver-voiced chorister in and almost stumbled over a bundle of rags crouched up in the corner, sobbing. It was Tom. ^ Come in, little cHap," said he. "P'raps, Haynes & Co.

Bashfully Toni walked into the great lighted hall and into the great dining-room, where a table was laden down with good things, but his gaze roved over these and rested on the face' of a beautiful woman, who with others of the party was crowding eagerly forward to see the boy who had sung so wonderfully. For a moment Tom looked into her eyes, but there was no sign of recognition in them —only interest. He said again: "I guess I must 'a' dreamed it all," and turned wearily away. Dreamed what, little boy?" asked the beautiful woman, bending over him. I don't know—quite—but when I heard the music a-comin' through the winder"—Tom's voice was low and thoughtful—"it seemed to me that some time I'd been on a big ship off on the ocean; that while they wuz a-sendin' up fireworks I had stood long side of a beautiful lady and" The stooping woman dropped to her knees and grasped Tom by the shoulders. Her eyes were fastened eagerly on his face; her bosom was heaving. The others stood around in wonder. "You stood by a beautiful lady," said the woman, "and—and what. Go on!" There were tears in her eyes. Tom was frightened. " 'Tain't nothin', ma'am—I didn't mean nothin'—I guess I must 'a' dreamed it. I didn't mean to make you feel bad." "Go on! Go on! Yon haven't made me feel bad. Go on!" Well, I stood by a beautiful lady, and she looked like you, only her hair wasn't gray, and—and I sang"—Tom's voice trembled now, and hiB eyes shifted from the woman's face and looked off over her into memory—"and I sang that song rfith her. I can see it all so plain! She had 'er hand on my head. I think she wuz my mother. I—I think so." In an instant the woman's arms were about the ragged little boy. The woman's sweet lips were covering his dirty face with kisses. Tom's Fourth of July had ended very gloriously.
