Elsa. 1 Tern for crocheted her another s knitting and crutches were by her bide Olaf was close by the window caning a salad with some skill and great Delight. Thing was As right As could be. Aud she went out into the gentle rain and followed the Trail across he Prairie with a quiet heart. If there is one thing a Xor Egian girl to do above All others it is to Crochet. A new pattern is More fascinating than books or dresses or beaus und Eisa and her Friend Kurin were worn to go deep into the delightful of or o be lace and insertion of co webby fineness and real Beauty. So Thev worked away tog Ether forgetful of the lowering temperature and the waning afternoon. Suddenly a great id struck the House. There was no longer the flashing of rain on the South windows. Instead there came out of the West what seemed to be a Volley of grape shot. In five minutes Elsa was on her nay Home with the wind at her Back pushing her along As though she were a toy balloon. Fortunate it was for us All that Elsa was Large and Strong. With her Well shod feet and a corseted Waist her Short skirts and her shawl drawn tight Over her head she sped along before the wind now and again crouching on her Knees to catch her breath and let some particularly Niekras blast go by. She told me afterwards that All she thought of during that run for it could not have been called a walk was How thankful she was that the wind was not in her face. Wrapped them about icy bodies of the rescued oxen. With hot water they sponged out the eyes Aud ears and Roseb. They turned the great head out of the wind Aud then considered the problem of where to House the Crea Tures for the night. Shelter they must have the stable was impossible. It Wear and tear of banquets. A. Popular former mayor of Balti More Hun to it. In these Days when Many of the ills which flesh is heir to Are said to be attributable directly to the eating of too much Good food or the drinking of too Jet Loci Tuc i us a Jim was Plain that Thev must it them into much Good , it is difficult to find the Sod Kin Hen. And How the door Man who in the course of two decades was much too narrow to let the great in Public life has attended at a con bodies through. Well then the door Serva Tive estimate not less than 000 e and at it Thev went with banquets and still maintains a comfortable avoirdupois and shows no ill must com a will. Elsi s Strong arms plied a and Ham tests of an ordeal which might Well such a Man. However. Is Ferdinand Claiborne i Strobe. Job or 14 Jears he in the mayor s chair and during All that time he was subject Torner and saw. And she found time to be thankful that the sods were shrunken so much that the work was comparatively easy. But even when the door and its casing Ivere out. The opening was still too narrow and the sods had Law which declares that to be chopped away with the a. This j a of a mayor s duties is to go to was almost the hardest part of their j banquets. Before he was Ever elected work of tearing Down but it was done 1 mayor of Baltimore he was a Public of at last and with much thumping and facial having been speaker of the House prodding the bewildered beasts were of delegates and held other Oil ices and housed and the door braced up against i during that time his quota of banquets the opening. Xerxer was there a More was not Small. And since he has retired to private life his friends who during seven years As mayor had honoured him with invitations to banquets have not forgotten him and he has continued to tired girl than Elsa after she had changed her wet clothes and sat Down beside her Mother for their evening prayers. But in telling Roe about it she seemed Grace the tables which have known him never to think of her Ovi n bravery Only of How Glace she was that she Hap in his official capacity. Say then that there Are be died to be at Home and she wondered 1 during which Gen. Latrobe has been a _ _.____1___ i i .___1_t 1. To a Little at the Fervour with which her quiet Mother thanked god for her Good daughter. Modest cheerful Elsa you Don t know that you Are Braxe and regular guest at Public banquets. He himself says that he must have attended at least 30 a year during that time and that makes the total of goo ban Quets. What is the secret of doing this loveliest in the world. Bat it seems thai he Hetero lbs to another i know what 1 am talking re marked a member of Congress. When i say that a congressman has to Oubes of Iii o wit. It s a Fine thing to be a statesman and show up in the National Parade of greatness at the capital but there s a Good Deal More to it than that. And one of the things that is hardest to Bear is what they say about us. Why a lady can t come up ask to see a member that there Aren t half a dozen people to Wink and shake the head and a lot More of the same to make him wish All women were in hades. Of course there is some ground among us for remarks just As there is Amona and doctors and Hod carriers and everybody else human and i know a woman or who find their chief Delight in toying to involve Congress men and other officials in any kind of a flir tation that comes Handy. They Are pretty and persuasive and before a Man knows what he is about he is Down in the Senate restaurant paying for a lunch and listening to some kind of a tale of woe. But they miss it now and then and i am glad to note an instance which occurred Only a Day or two ago. A member from a Northern state had been invited to Call at the lady s hotel the next Day and she had asked him to let her know if he could Conie. Lie wrote saying among other things to Morrow Madam. I Hope to see the loveliest woman in the whole world naturally she was pleased and told All the people around the hotel about it. The next Day he did not appear and the next she saw him at the capita and asked hire he meant by her so. What did i he asked innocently. You said you were coming to see she blushing at the remembrance of his words. I think not indeed you she insisted. You said you see the loveliest woman in the and she hushed again. Oil i beg your he said smiling 1 meant my wife. She just arrived yester it was in december that mrs. Olson broke her leg and sent for Elsa to Home. My children cried when she climbed into her father s Wagon and lumbered off behind the slow looted oxen Keither she nor they thought then that those same oxen would furnish the occasion for an exhibition of bravery and Good sense of anyone might be proud. Ii else had not had such a cheerful soul she would have cried too for she knew there was not one comfortable thing about her father s House. She knew there was Only one living room and that it had Only one window in it. She knew that the Little Sod sum Mer Kitchen leaked like a Sieve. She knew that to get Down cellar for Pota toes she would have to lift up a trap door in the floor and drop herself Down like a spider and that the getting out of this Hole was not unlike the getting out of a Good Many other a Good Deal harder work than the getting in. She knew that she. Could throw a cat through the Little Sod stable where the oxen lived. But no matter How uncomfortable things were she always found Sorne to be thankful for. She used to Tell me How glad she South and their one door looked East for in Winter when they had to have the door shut the window was just right for All the Sunshine. In the som Mer when the window must be shaded because of the heat and the door must stand open for Light How Nice that it was on the Cool Side of the House she was so glad their cellar was t deep for How could she get out of it if it were and How much better to have it under their one warm room even if she did have to move the table every time she dropped herself Down into it for As it was. Nothing Ever froze there. She was so glad that the floor of their Sod Kitchen sloped so that the water which ran through the roof would All run out away from their living room. How bad it would be if it ran into the House in Stead of out but even her Bright nature failed to find much cause for gratitude when she remembered the oxen in their ram shackle shed. She had the kindest Teart in the world and to see a helpless creature neglected gave her the keenest misery. But she used to Sny that she glad her father had oxen instead of horses for horses needed so much More care and food and shelter. Oxen could live around the Straw stack half the Winter. So she went Home that december Day sorry to leave her comfortable quarters and my Loving children but willing and glad to make life a Little easier for her Mother and with never a thought except to do cheerfully what Ever her hand should find to to. In a. Few weeks a very strange thing happened. It rained. Now the old est almost never known rain to fall in North Dakota in january. But there had been a great Many mild Days and Evhen at last the rain fell straight Down softly and quietly with out any wind just As it used to do Back we All forgot that we were in the land and season of Bliz kids. Elsa s father decided to go up to town with one his neighbors. I thought he would be Back by four o clock but if he were not his 12 year old son Olaf was to shovel out the stable so that oxen could be shut in if it turned cold. Pfow Olaf and is father were As like As two peas. Each would work like a a fiver at the thing he enjoyed doing Olaf at Wood Carv ing and his father at the forget All about the empty Manger and broken door hinges. If Elsa had been so instead of 16 she taken account of her brother s nature. And followed Myles Standish s advice if you want anything Well do it but she was Only just be ginning to learn the of life so her father had gone she tidied up the House put out All her pans and kettles and tubs to catch soft water filled the store with Lignite Coal nursed and watered the Little Myrtle tree which scr not Fer bad brought with her from Sor my fut their Timple dinner of Luk scrod and and then concluded to to of fee neighbors about two to Neww enu ii part darkness had come reached Hei i Iii ice s ii us and panting her heart thumping As though it would jump right out of her Mouth and her Back coated with ice. Had her father come to. Ind Olaf taken in the oxen no he forgot. Did he know where they were Well he saw them Over on the West Side of the Straw stack late in the afternoon when he went out for a piece of Wood for his carving. I think Brave Elsa would have cried or scolded then if there had been time. Doing neither she said Olaf. You go and get the lantern Quick we be got to get those oxen right off 1 and out they went into the tempest for by now it was nothing less. A dozen Steps Over the Slippery ground brought them around the Corner of the House into the Teeth of the wind. Down went Olaf Aud away the lantern would have rolled if Elsa had not caught it. In another minute the Light was out and they were both on the ground holding fast to each other and to an obliging Post while the wind roared and raged above them and the sleet lashed their Bare faces. Get Ting Back into the House As Best they could they remit the lantern. Then Elsa tied handkerchiefs Over their faces just leaving their eyes exposed. The lantern Vas strapped to Olaf s Waist a Candle was set in the Kitchen window and they started out once More.

The City of Balti More mayor can make no greater mis take than to try to go to banquets in one night. This is a thing that i never did. When i received an invitation i wrote it Down and if another came i informed the second Comers that and sympathy and encouragement. The when the ume came to feet Swift horse wins the race and in these Days he May cause considerable Money to Chatine hands in which there is certainly nothing that is commendable. But the Quick horse 1 write about saves life saves property and under modern conditions of life is essential to our safety and general Well being. He is Bull .

Having never had consumption in our fam ily As we come of Good old Irish and scotch Stock we did not think it was that.

It is impossible to describe the feeling John and i had As we noticed our daughter slowly passing away from us.

The race. The fire that was auce Rether a Sec the lantern was stepped to Olaf s Waist. Moving with the greatest care some times crawling on hands and Knees they reached the Straw stack which was Only a few rods from the House. There they found the Ani Roncil stnnrlipg1 right in the face of the wind Blind dazed their Heads hanging their Bod ies encased in Ioe and their limbs Bend ing under them. Elsa shouted at them but their ice covered ears failed to hear. Holding the lantern close to their Heads she saw that they were breathing with the greatest difficulty because of the ice about their nostrils. To get that off visas the first thing to be done. Put Ting her warm hands Over the nose of one of the oxen she bade Olaf do the Mondary matter and when they finally got there they Wenit to with More i of less efficiency.

In putting the Ian Tern out of the wind she struck a Loose picket stake and at once found some thing to be thankful for. They tied the strap to the horns of the weaker animal.
