At Fredafba every one advised
mother and Nina not to attempt the
trail until morning. This time it was
mother who would push on. "We
know the trail so well,” said she, “and
the burros know it better, in two
hours we can reach camp.”
“It seeps to me,” Baid the stage
driver as he watched the two disap-
pear around the curve, “it seems to me
that some folks haven’t any sense ”
and shutting his lips in a determined
fashion he went to the telephone and
called for Nina’s father. "I’ll tell him
his folks are coming and to go out to
meet them,” he explained to the men
standing near. "Otherwise the poor
fellow may have a surprise he won’t
like on Christmas day.”
To the stage driver’s dismay there
was no answer to his call. Father’s

“Oh," was the reply, “it’s inch n

He also tells of a playgoer who iw
celved no response to his repeated re-
quests to a lady in front of him t#

At length, exasperated, he said: "If

Thus Jt happened that two passen-
gers went up the trail on the Isat
stage of the old year.
"Anybody going to meet you In

“The weather Is pretty severe up

suggested the stage driver. "They
tell me your husband has a telephone

"But we’re Christmas presents," ex-

will be Christmas eve?”
