That we might behold the heavens

God has spread out untold beauty.
While in man his image dwells.
Chose a symbol from this nature,
From God's great wide out of doors
Anywhere from highest mountain
To the low and wide sea shore.
And be that symbol grand or modest,
Choose it for some worthy aim,
That will bring the Campfire honor,
As we proudly feed its flame.

Cast her ray out in the dark.

A Messenger From the North.
' I stood alone on the banks of a
small stream gazing down into the
clear water, my thought centering
Upon the journey homeward, when the
bushes opposite parted, and a man
stood on the bank scarcely a dozen
steps away, with only the stream be between
tween between us. It was time and place for
caution, for suspicion of strangers, and
my rifle came forward in instant readi readiness,
ness, readiness, my heart throbbing with star startled
tled startled surprise. He held up both hands,
his own weapon resting on the ground.
"Not so careless, boy," he called
across cheerfully. "There is no war,
so far as I know, between white men.'
His easy tone, as well as his words,
jarred on me, yet I lowered the rifle.
"I am no boy," I retorted, "as you
may discover before we are through
"No? Well by my eyesight you look
it,, although in faith you are surely big
enough for a grown man. Yours is
the first white face I've seen since I
left the Shaw nee towns a weary journey."
"The Shawnee towns! I echoed,
staring at him in fresh wonderment.
"You come from beyond? From the

"A longer journey than that even,"
he acknowledged slowly. "I am from
Sandusky, by way of Vincennes." i
"The Indians who were with me re- :
mained at. Shawnee; they lost heart. I
Since then I have been by myself."
"Come over," I said shortly, "where :
we can converse more easily."
He stepped into the cool water un-1
hesitatingly, and waded across, a small
pack at his back, and a long rifle
across his shoulder. There was a
reckless audacity about the fellow I
could not fail to observe, and, as he
scrambled up the rather steep bank, I
had a glimpse of a face iar trom my :
liking. However, ours was a rough
life in those days, accustoming us to ;
strange acquaintances, so I waited, I
my rifle in my hand, determined to
know more of this wanderer. He was t
a man of middle age, with gray hairs j
a plenty, and scraggly beard, an j
active body, of good girth, and a ;
dark face, deeply seamed, having j
an ugly scar adown his right
cheek, seemingly from Its white center j
the slash of a. knife. The eyes, gleam-1
ing beneath the brim of his hat, were ;
furtive, uncanny, black as to color, and
bold enough in the sneaking way of a j
tiger cat. Beyond these things there j
was little distinctive about the man, j
his dress merely that of the back- j
woods fringed hunting shirt and leg- j
gings of leather, dirty and soiled by I
long use, yet exhibiting a bit of fop-
pery in decoration which made me re-,
call the French voyageurs of the
north and their gay ribbons. At his
belt dangled hunting knife and toma tomahawk,
hawk, tomahawk, but these, with the rifle, con- ;
stituted his whole display of weapons.
Even before he had obtained the level ;
on which I stood I had conceived a dis dislike
like dislike for the fellow, a desire to have
done with further acquaintanceship.
With feet planted firmly on the edge
of the grass he scanned me from head
to foot with unwinking eye, that
sought vainly to smile.
"You are surely a big fellow," he
said at last. "Some hand at rough and
tumble, I make bold to guess. Let
us have frankness between us. I come
from the north on a mission of peace,
the representative of the tribes, and
of Hamilton. All I ask is fair speech,
"You represent Hamilton, you say?"
"Aye, though I expect little will

"Both, passing well. St. Clair is up

ward," Hayward," he answered, insolently. "I am
called Simon Girty."
I involuntarily took a step back backward,
ward, backward, staring into the man's face.
That he was a renegade of some sort,
I had realized from the first, yet it
had never once occurred to me that he
could be that bloody scoundrel, Girty. j
There Cashed across my mind the
stories I had heard of his atrocities:
his leadership- of. Indians in midnight
forays; his malignant cruelty; the
heartlessness with which he watched
victims burning at the stake; his out-,
rages on helpless women and children; ;
the fiendish acts of savagery with ;
which his brutal name was connected
along the border. And this was the
man this cowardly-eyed dastard, who
stood there grinning into my face, evi evidently
dently evidently amused at my undisguised ex expression

him! My first inclination was to strike
the man down in his tracks, "kill him

read all this in my eyes, in the stiffen stiffening

"No, no, Master Hayward," he sneer sneered,

grass, and held out his empty hands.
"It is easy to kill me, yet you will not

I stood irresolute, hesitating, half
tempted still to come to blows, yet his
act disarmed me. Beast though he
might be I could not kill him in cold
blood; I was no murderer, yet it was
i a struggle to resist,

Convinced as I was that Girty actu actually
ally actually desired to reach the fort, although
somewhat skeptical as to his purpose,
I felt no fear of treachery. I was of too
great value to the fellow to warrant
an attack; so, without hesitation, I
led the way, permitting him to follow
or not, as he pleased. I had it in my
mind to question him, but refrained.
What would be the use? The fellow j
would only lie, in all probability, and
one word would lead to another. He
would have to be explicit enough once j
he confronted Harmar, and ,my duty j
merely consisted in delivering him
safely at the gates of the fort. j
It was noon when we came to the j
clearings, littered with stumps, but
yielding view of the distant river, and
the scattered log houses of Marietta. j
Men were at work in the fields, but I
avoided these as much as possible, al-!
though they paused in their labor and j
stared suspiciously at us as we ad-!
vanced. However I was well known,
my size making me notable, and as
our course was toward the town, no
one objected to our progress. There
was no recognition of the man, who
clung close to my heels, and I wasted
no time in getting past, eager to be
well rid of him. j
In truth I felt little hope of getting
through thus easily. The fellow was
too widely known not to be recognized
by some one. These men of the fields
were settlers, newly arrived mostly,
and slightly acquainted as yet with
border history, but there would be idle ;
hunters in the village, backwoodsmen ;
from across the river, men who had
ranged the northern forests, and to
whom the name of Girty meant much.
Let one of these look upon the man
and his life would scarce be worth
the snap of a finger. Not that I cared,
except as his safe passage involved my i
own word. j
"Come along," I said harshly. "I i
would be done with you." J
We advanced up the road to where j
the fort gates stood open, a single j
sentry standing motionless between !;
the posts. As we drew near, a group i
of hunters a half dozen maybe sud suddenly
denly suddenly emerged, their long rifles trail trailing,
ing, trailing, on their way to the valley. I
recognized the man in advance as the
Kentuckian Brady, frontiersman and
Indian fighter, and recognizing me he
"Ah, back again, Master Hayward,"
. he exclaimed good humoredly. But
j whet is it you have here? No settler
j of thi3 valley, to my remembrance."
Tie stared at my companion, shading
; his eyes with one hand, his face losing
; its lock of cheerfulness,
i "Indian trappings hey!" he ex
claimed. "Some northwest renegade!
Stop! I've seen that face before!"
His rifle came forward swiftly, as the
truth burst upon him. "Curse you.
you're Simon Girty!"
I gripped the barrel of his gun,
pressing my way between him and the
"Whatever his name," I said sternly,
"this is not your affair. The fellow
comes with message from Hamilton,
and has my pledge of safe guidance.
Stand back now, and let us pass!"
"I'll not stand back," he said wres wrestling
tling wrestling to break my grip on his
rifle. "Not to ,let that devil go
free. Let go of the gun bar barrel,

your soldiers. Here Potter, Evans, do

Girty come on!"
They had hold of me instantly hurl hurling
ing hurling me back in spite of my struggling.
I saw the renegade throw forward his
rifle, and shouted to him.
"Don't do that, you fool run!"
Even as I cried out the order I
leaped forward, seeking to get grip on
Brady, hurling the others aside with
a sweep of my arms. There was an
instant of fierce fighting, of blows,
curses, threats. I lunged over the
rifle Lrrel, and got grip on Brady's
beard, only to be hauled back by a
dozen hands, and flung to my knees.
"Sentry! Call the guard!"
I got the words out somehow, boring
my way forth from under the huddle
of forms. There was a rush of feet,
the shouting of an order, the shock
of contact, and then I stood alone,
wiping the perspiration from my eyes.

H6w Do the Classics Help Us?
The answer lies in one little word,
art. The classics, more than any
modern literature, teach us art, and
art is the conscious purpose of man
to make this world more beautiful.
Philip Sidney says that the object of
poetry Is to make this too-much loved
world more lovely; I should extend
his definition a little further and say
that the object of art is to make this
world more lovely, more lorable, and
more loved. Henry D. Sedgwick, in
A lot of recent fiction at The
What Astonished Canadian.
A Canadian paying his first visit to
London was asked what he thought
of it. "Well," he replied, "it Is as astonishing
tonishing astonishing the number of people who
have got a shine on their boots in the
morning." He then explained that
over on the other side landladies
never brush boots, with the result
that people of both sexes get into
a habit of patronizing "shoe shine
parlors" when they want their boots

writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman's
tonic She says further: "Before I began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would kill me. 1 was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles
of Cardui, I began to feel like a new woman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
I wish every suffering woman would give

and it always does me good."
