Thii hoy, terribly shaken over his father's horrible death, quietly rflsuin- ed his work and new reipoaslblllty with the fjonteniknii courage of a man. Kor two years he worked and Hvoil alone. The mongrel dog and the horses hia only companions. In the busy season he worked from daylight till dark. In hia homos he took a Browing pride. Mornlpv and nlpht, he would scrub audrbrueh till hides shone and hlu youns arms ached. Tliis .work, however, never hindered hia more presRlng duty In the fiolds. When threshing was done, with one team behind the other, ho haiilfMl two loads at one trip day after day until ilia grain was in the elevator. But the work was hard, and often his young heart was nigh breaking for tbo want of the encouraging compan- ionship and love, which his life had harrlly known. Some fexv years iater the Quality aud fine appearance of a young team oC mares Jitck was driving: drew the attention of a tall, elderly atranger, wearing a large broad-brimmed west- ern hat. He much atfmired Jack's team and gradually from him tiis story. The honest appearance and alert- ness, couplet) with the story of his early struggles, greatly impressed the: stranger, and lie proceeded to outline I to the young man, the possibilities! open to a young man of the lutter's j calibre in the horse business in Al-j berta. whore lie himself was R ranch- er. .Iaclc'9 profound' interest was j aroused, with the result that he j companietl ,Iohn Uarret, as the latter iiilrudnced himself, to Southern Al- berta to have a look at the Arriving there. Jack was quick to sight the possibility of the plan out- lined to him by Barret, and at once determined to quit the imiutorestln; farm in Manitoba, move his few horses to Alberta, and 9Urt life anew. In the Parly part of young SUton's life, fortune had wavered back and forth in a very uncertain way Indeed, but after making him an orphan, i she was evidently moved out of pity I to favor him. with the result that Jack i built up an admirable horse herd.

High on the north and Bnuth roBfi the banks of Chin Coulee. I Tbo occasional deep ravines running j far back into the level uplands, fur- nished perfect shelter and abundance of grazing tor the horses in the wint- er storms. In the coulee bottoms two hundred acres of rich soil furnished plenty of oat sheaves for stable feeding of yearlings, and for the three year olds I which Jack was getting in shape for I the spring sales. A long frame struc-i turo boused the throe-year-olds. Sev- enty -five wide-backed straight-limbed beauties, their splendid coats, evi- dence of the care and attention they received. In a few weeks their mag- nifiicence would be paraded for the benefit of prospective buyers in the towns further north. There an unpre- cedented demand for horses was cre- ated by- the great increase in acreage cultivated during the last few years.

"Laura, it's sourel-y six months since I met you. hut it seems like years.: I've wanted to say this for mouths, but, never dared till now. Laura I've hung- ered for a woman's love all my life.

Their only child her parents had decided to give hei tlie best education their means would allow, and bad aent her East at the age of ten years. Now she had return- ed to the pralrlft she had loved ag a child. John Barrot, though by no means rich, had given her most the neces- sities of- life, and considerable luxur- ies in many ways. Byt of an open mind and with an unerring lovo for all things good she had returned untouch ed by the pseudo life of the city, as she had departed from her home an innocent child. Her father expressed his joy on her return by making her a present a beautiful chestnut saddle mare and almost daily the girl might be seen riding anywhere aud everywhere her fancy dictated. Today her father had insisted on her going with him to the Silton ranch which he often visited, for he fost- ered a heartfelt prfde in the lad's progress. On their arrival at the ranch, the men shook hands cordially, then tinn- ing to his daughter, Barret Introduced her to the boy, expressing pride in his voii'.o.
