"Hurrah Mother! I’ve thought of
a way to get the money for the inter- ]
est." cried Cynthia Brannon, rushing
Into the big kitchen like a young hur- j
ricane, and as the face of the woman i
who was engaged In the prosaic task
of peeling potatoes brightened, she
continued triumphantly: “Just think )
of all the rows of sweet pickles and
preserves and canned things, and the
tumblers of jelly by tbe dozen that
are packed away in the preserve
closet, and then dare to say that we
haven’t anything we can sell!"
Mrs. Brannon asked doubtfully,
But, dear child, who is going to buy
them? Everyone around here has
Just as large a supply as we have."
"Oh 1 shan't try to sell them here.
1 Intend to pack the market wagon
and go over to the shore There are
lots of people camping out this sum-
mer, and I know they will be glad to
get some of your lovely preserves
1 shall ask only twenty-five vents for
the quart cans, and ten cents a tum-
bler for the Jellies, and If 1 don’t find
a market for every solitary one of
them I miss my guess."

Next morning found Cynthia cover-
erlng her five mile drive to the shore
at Dobbin’s best pace, and with a
large supply of every sort of canned
goods in the wagon.
As she was descending the long hill
to the orach she saw coming toward
her a band of youngsters clad In the
uniform of the present day church
"That must be some of St. John’s
boys," thought Cynthia. “1 suspect
they are out foraging—why shouldn’t
they Invest in some preserves?"
When she reached them, Cynthia
hailed the boys In true peddler fash-
ion. "Can't 1 sell you some home-
made preserves and Jellies?” she in-
quired, aud they flocked round her
'1 he smallest of the boys climbed
up to the seat beside Cynthia, and
commenced at once to tell her all
about their affairs as the wagon mov-
"1 tell you It’s a dandy camping out
Just like soldiers," he began. "And
we have to do things by rule same
as they do, too. Mother thought I
was too little to go oft alone, but Cap-
tain Morgan Bays my record Is as
good as the biggest of them—It’s only
by my size he knows I am small!”
He smiled proudly up into Cynthia's
That is splendid. And do you boys
have to cook and keep things tidy for
Yott bet we do! Captain Morgan
knows how to do everything and he
shows us boys He said before we
started that this wasn't going to be
any make-believe camp, with some-
body to do the work for us Rut It’s
lots of fun with Captain Morgan to
"There’s the captain—won't he
think we've made a jolly find?’ called
one of the bigger cadets, racing off
at top speed toward the camp.
To her surprise Cynthia found her-
self gazing into the face of a man
who seemed hardly more than a boy
"My hoys are sure they have found
a treasure, and 1 quite agree with
them What are you asking for the
entire load?" His frank smile won
I had cot thought of everything
going to one customer," she replied
"There are a great many jarB on the
wagon and are you sure you will
like the goods? It Is always best to
examine before purchasing you
But the looking over her col-
lection only made the captain and his
cadets more eager to possess them.
It seems a lot, but the amount 1
must have Is $25," Cynthia said, at
Instead of being shocked at her
demand, Captain Morgan laughed and
answered, "That Is the cheapest 1
ever heard of selling such a stack of
preserves at, but 1 will see that the
jars and glasses are all returned to
you In good shape."
The cadets speedily cleared Cyn-
thia's wagon and she drove away with
five crisp flve-dollar bills tucked In
Mrs Brannon, trying to hope that
Since Teacher Did Not Know.
It was In the primary class of a
graded school In a western city and
the day was the 22d of February.
"Now, who can tell me whose birth-
day this is?" asked the teacher.
A little girl arose timidly.
"Well, Margaret, you may tell us,”
said the teacher.
“Mine,” was the unexpected reply.
Cynthia’s scheme might prove a suc-
cess, while not daring to believe It
really feasible, was a delighted and
thankful woman when, much sooner
than she had thought possible, bet

Later on Cynthia said soberly,

because there Is no use for it. I

A week after her excursion to the
shore, Cynthia was returning from a
trip to the village When driving
through a deep pass where the ground
rose steeply on both sides into bills
crowned with stunted pines, she
heard a voice calling loudly, "Miss
Preserves! Miss Preserves!” Look-
ing up she beheld the smallest of the
St. John cadets scrambling down the
steep incline to the road.
At once she drew rein, and called
back, "Am 1 'Miss Preserves?' "
ri didn’t know what else to call
you,’ panted the youngster as he
reached the wagon “Oh, Miss Pre-
serves, won’t you let us bring Johnnie
Action dowD to you, and then drive
him over to camp? He fell into a
hole and sprained his ankle so he
can t walk, and Captain Morgan sent
me to watch the road for a wagon and
1 was just In time to catch you."
"Yes, indeed." answered Cynthia.
'Bring Johnnie right along and 1 will
get him to camp as fast as Dobbin
"I knew it was all right soon as I
saw you,” said the small cadet grate-
fully, and then hastened up the hill
after his comrades.
Captain Morgan and one of the
boys appeared soon, carrying the
lamed Johnnie between them, and fol-
lowed by the whole flock
'You seem to be our guardian an-
gel," said the captain to Cynthia, as
they gently deposited the disabled
youngster on the seat beside her.
"We shah be more than grateful for
your help today—and the boys have
carefully packed away all the jars
we have emptied so far," he added
1 he Injured foot had been propped
up as comfortably as possible, and Its
owner bore the pain bravely Before
the shore was reached her compan-
ions haJ learned Cynthia's name and
where she lived, and the boys assured
her that they intended to pay her a
visit soon with an installment of the
The weeks passed swiftly, and all
too soon lor any of them the time
came for the cadets to break camp.
The youngsters were enjoying a final
game of baseball on one of their last
afternoons, the grassy lot beside Mrs.
Brannon’s orchard furnishing their
diamond, while Cynthia and Captain
Morgan formed part of an admiring
"What a fine lot of boys they are,
and how lonely mother and 1 will
feel without them," said Cynthia with
a little sigh.
“They are the best boys in the
world," answered their captain heart-
ily, "but though you may miss them,
1 know of some one who will be a
thousand times more lonely when
Cynthia looked up In real surjrise
at his tone, for never a word of senti-
ment had passed Captain Morgan's
lips before—they had been good com-
rades, that was all.
“The brave little girl who started
out alone to sell her wares won my
heart the first time 1 saw her, and
every meeting with our dear 'Miss
Preserves has made me long to be-
come her prisoner for life Won't
you try to spare a little of your love
for the boys to their undeserving cap-
And then Cynthia’s heart was re-
vealed to her, for suddenly she real-
ized that it would make life very
empty to have this big, kindly captain
pass out of It.
“I think that possibly he has more
than his share now,” she answered

Eugene Forbes, Lebanon, Kansas. “I
took several different medicines, giving
each a fair trial, but grew worse until
1 could hardly hear, taste or smell. I
was about to give up in despair, but con-
cluded to try Hood’s Sarsaparilla. After
taking three bottles of this medicine I
was cured, and have not had any return
of the disease.”
Hood’s Sarsaparilla effects radical and
permanent cures of catarrh.
