A couple of weeks later a car was backed up the siding tlmt ran into the county f,iir grounds, and some lnyster|- ous packages were nnloaded and taken into the Agricultural hall. The next night the few persons who were abroad after u]idni.llt were sur- prl:,'ea to .ee a huge white balk flogt- ins in the ah'. Some fled, some stared, but none guessed what It was. Marion, lookiug from Imr window, saw it approachhl, in the moonllght mnl watched the aeronaut as he ma- neuvered for a favorable approach. Presently the machine settled down. At its approach the watchdog fled and htd trembling under the barn, so that no sound save the soft purring of tlm motor broke the tillness as the bag brushed against the house. It was not an easy matter to get Marion into the car, but at last she grasped Jim's hands and swung out clear of the sill. Then he drew her up into the ear, and with a soft flutter the bhmt nose of the gas bag was pointed toward the moon. They rose a hundred feet, and then through the still night air they headed for across 'the river. There was no ferry or bridge nearer than Carrsville, five miles downstream, and oven should her father be aroused by the noise he could not head them off In time. As it happened there was no sound to arouse his SUSlncions, anti an hour later they had crossed the water and were stand- ing in the pgrsonage of the little church while the surprised minister read the marriage service. Then they climbed into the cat" again, and the airship rose into the sky. "It's an odd wedding Journey," he laughed as the great gas bag rose. "I guess this is the first elopement by airship." "Don't you think," she smiled back, "that all newly married people are up In the clouds?" "That's because they are so near par- adise," he explained. "I feel as if we had sailed right through the blue vault." "We must come back to earth," she said practically. "I wonder what fa- ther will say." "We shall know tn about half an hour," he laughed. "I am going hack to convince him that you dtd not break your oath." George Italpin was Just going toward the barn in the first early light when he paused, awestricken, to regard the shape al)l)roaching. When It descer;d- 'ed close to him and he saw Jim and Mariou in the car he grasped the sit- uation. "I promised not to elope on land or water, father,", explained Marion, with a nervous little laugh, as she stepped from the car_ "'You see, I kept my word." For a moment the old anger flared up, then died out again: "I gues," she said slowly, "that if Jim Warner is as hard up as all that for a wife he can have you. You'd better run lx the house and tell mother to come oat and have a look at thls Invention. ItYs got me dumfounded." Xot an IL Month. It was a broiling August day..Four tired, sweltering, discouraged, fisher- men sat at the table of a wajnside inn eating their dinner. The soup was steaming hot. the fried steak sizzled on hot plates, the torrid baked potatoes burned Incautious fingers, and the fiercely hot coffee scalded reckless tongues. Even the wtter war rather more than lukewarm. "Such a dtnuer/' growled one of the uncomfortable party, '.'to set :before folks vn abet day!" Presently the matd entered to re- move the plates. She asked a question that filled the tired, hot tsherm6n with Joyful expectations. What she said sounded like this: "'APe you ready for your lceT" Ice! Of course they were ready.
