Ill REMEMBRANCE— A fitting way to keep alive the memory of those who have gone before us is to erect a Monument over their final resting-place. This can be done by selecting one of our many designs and letting us construct a memorial—substantial in material and of finished workmanship. Thompsonville Monumental Works, . Pearl Street, ThnmpsnmrilV, "Now, see here, my friend," said John Proctor, his honest eyes looking gravely into the tramp's face, as he balanced a dime on the tip of his finger, "I want to present to you a little matter of statistics. You know, as well as I, that the country is swarmed with men of your class. No less than six, begging me for money, have stopped me on the street to day; while down there at the yard," indicating with his hand a row of tall lumber piles surrounding a building in the distance, "we haven't had three applications for work in a month." "That's always the way," the tramp muttered. "Say we won't work! They won't give us a show. If a man gets down there's no getting up again." There was something almost pathetic his very sullenneeg as he shuffled away, his rags flapping in the strong breeze. "Come back here, will you?" John Proctor's voice was strong and decisive. The tramp halted, then shuffled back again. "Come down to the yard this afternoon and I'll give you a job. But take this money and get filled up first." The man did not immediately extend his hand to take it. In the moment or two that elapsed the young lumberman thought he detected a trace of something allied to resentful pride in his bearing. But the illusion vanished as a grimy hand closed greedily upon the silver. Proctor looked after him with a quizzical smile Five minutes later he knew bis own name would bp the toast of a drunken crowd of loafers in th<'s iloon around the corner. To be sure it wouldn't help to advance a certain Quiotic reputation which had attached itself to him since his first advent in this l^tle^New Mt, nau-vn But he steadily'^^feeflo^".8^,^ ?? Grant that ninety-nineftout pf eS^^WJfrof this population were thieves and mendioants, he was wont to say he preferred to be victimized by the ninety-and-nine rather than miss the hundredth man. As John Proctor took his way down through the park in the direction of his office, his eye fell on the incongruous array of buildings that constituted the town. Had not every foot of lumber been supplied from his own lumber yard? And did not this avalanche of trade mean—Annie? Nothing could be mean or poor which brought these weary years of waiting to an end. How she would rejoice over them, that quiet little denizen of western prairies, who had lived among the monotonous levels of central Illinois all her life 1 That afternoon as Proctor was making out an order for several carloads of finishing lumber, a shadow darkened the door, and the tramp stood before him. He could not repress an exclamation of surprise. The vagabond observed it, and his face lowered as he asserted himself defiantly. "Yes, I've comel" he said. What are you going to give me to do?" Proctor put on his hat and went with him into the yard, where an empty car was waiting to be filled. He showed the man a small slip of paper tacked on the end, and was about to explain where he would find the material designated, when the fellow threw off his coat and deftly attacked a pile of scantling, which happened to be the first item on the list. "Hullo!" said Proctor, gazing at him in surprise. "You seem to know some thing about this business." A little," replied the man shortly. The young lumberman took his way back to the office. At six o'clock, when the hands came up to receive pay for their day's labor, Proctor saw his protege standing off a little distance. As the men filed out, the agent of the Plumbago City train came running into the office with a package in his hand. 'Here, Proctor, run over them quickly and sign this receipt. It's the $5,000 from Janez & Signor." The lumberman hastily signed his name to' the receipt, and the agent hurried out. Left alone Proctor drew from his pocket a long leather pocket-book and laid the notes carefully inside. As he thrust this into his breast pocket he chanced to glance toward the window, and encountered the hungry eyes of the tramp. The man seemed about to speak, then changed his mind and sauntered away. A vague anxiety assailed Proctor. It was long after banking hours; there no help for it; he must be the custodian of bis treasure until morning. He drew off his coat and placed it beneath his pillow. Then he examined the bar-' rels of a pistol. Reassured by this pre-faot to be despised. He had traveled half way across the continent without once knowing the shelter of a civilized roof. A little later two glowing sparks of fire seemed to glide down the railroad track, steal around the'office and disappear within the long drying-shed at its rear, The lowest Mexican peon, who all his life goes half clothed, half fed and unsheltered, handles his cigar or cigarette with the fine pomposity and careless grace of the proudest hidalgo John Proctor awoke that night to find himself assailed by a foe mightier than his feeble imagination had pictured. He tried to rise, but found himself to be unable, oppressed by a terrible sense of suffocation from dense volumes of smoke which filled the air, through which vast sheets of flame darted their forked tongues toward him. Suddenly the wall of flame and smoke was parted, and the face of the tramp bent over him. He was roughly shaken, pulled off the bed, half dragged, half carried through the little private office and dragged into the large room beyond, where the fire had begun its work of devastation. Then voice and memory came back, and he shouted: "My notes! In my coat pocket, under the pillow! Let me go!" For an answer the roof seemed to slowly vibrate to and fro, then sank down with sudden crash. With half-dazed senses, John Proctor turned to the scene before him. There was still something to be done. The cream of the stock had been destroyed, but, unless some piles of lumber to the right of the building were speedily removed, the fire would communicate with the whole outside stock, stretched for several hundred yards along the railroad track. He turned to the crowd of men who stood there, inactive, gazing upon the scene: "Come on and help us save the lumber!" The men worked like negroes, and every piece of lumber was removed to a safe distance. That night, worn and wearied, John Proctor sat down to rest upon the wheel of his own copying press. He knew that this disaster had wrought his irreparable ruin. If he could only have saved that $5,000, or if he had not been so ambitious! Annie had been ready—poor little girl! She had even proposed bringing her piano to this raw southern town and eking out their income with the result of their own labors. On one point he was resolved. Whenever he got square with the world again he would put his pride in his pocket, and humbly presenting himself before the little woman ask her to share his fortunes, for better or worse. Oh, God! how long would it be? A sharp groan escaped his lips. Suddenly he arose and stood erect His quick ear had caught the sound of some heavy body slowly moving over the ground. "Who is there?" "Only me. Is that you, boss?" John Proctor bent forward and perceived a man slowly crawling along in the shadow of a pile of joists. As the figure emerged into the moonlight he saw that the fellow dragged one leg helplessly after him. His suspicions melted away beneath his natural warmth of heart. "Are you hurt?" "Only a falling timber, boss, but the fire got into my eyes, and I can't see very well." He had drawn himself to Proctor's feet, and stopped, turning a little upon his side, his head propped up with his hand. You see, when I came through the door something fell against me, aud not seeing you, and not being able to get about very well, there were so many of those cussed Mexican thieves about, I was afraid they might make off with this"—holding out a flat leather pocket-book which John Proctor seized with a exclamation. The man went on talking in an absent way. "I wouldn't like to have you think ill of me. You're the first man who gave me a chance since I got down. I wa'n't always a loafer, sir. You spoke of my knowing something about the business, and to be sure I ought, if fifteen years as 'sorter' in the Wisconsin lumber regions can teach a man anything of lumber. But when my wife died I struck off out West. It's been hard luck ever since—and my little girl—back there with her grand paren ts—" His voice seemed to fail for weakness. "What have you eaten to-day?" asked the other sharply. The man answered reluctantly and almost in a tone of apology. "You see, sir—down there among the lumber piles how could I?" John Proctor was a man given more to action than to speech. ' 'Do you think you could hold on to my back while I carried you down to the hotel?" he said. "Why, sir, it wouldn't be fit." "Shut up! Put your arms around my neck." The office and barroom of the hotel held its usual quota of respectable loafers when John Proctor entered with the uncouth figure on his back. A gurgle of laughter ran through the crowd, but it suddenly ceased when the young man went straight to the clerk, saying in his clear, ringing tones: "Give me the best rooin you have. This man, who saved my life last night, is badly hurt. Some of you," turning to the idlers, "go at once for the surgeon on the Atchison road." A dozen men sprang forward to relieve him of his burden, to help him carry the fellow to a comfortable room, where as gently laid upon the bed. The sufferer received these attentions in His dim eyes stared incredu lously about the room and into the kindly faces bending over him. That anything like this should happen to him 1 How long would it last? Would they let him have one good night's rest before turning him out again? When once more on the desolate plain, wandering through sage-brush, mesquite and soap-weed, it would seem like some strange dream.
