What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

By CLARISSA MACKIE. te0o)rtsht, iws, by Associated Literary Prem.) Oficla walked down the green aisle of waving corn. The log green leaves flickered high over her sunny head, and the sound of the wind sweeping through the ten acre corn- field was like the roaring swell of tin ocean in her ears. Now and then she tore a plump eat from the juicy stalks and thrust it ie her splint basket She did this leisure- ly, for it was yet early morning, and there were hours before dinner, and she loved to walk in the corn. The rustle of the leaves drowned an other sounds, and thus it was that she came suddenly upon a man crouching on the ground before her. As her pink skirts came Into his range of vision be leaped to his feet and stood, half turn- ed for flight. The girl grew white with sudden fear and in her turn made as If to rue away. The man's face lost. Its strained intensity and relaxed for an instant. She saw that be was young and -good looking and that he was afraid of something. \What do you want? Why are you here?\ \They're after me,\ be said grimly. \Who?\ \The constables.\ \What have you done?\ She did not shrink away from him as he expected she might do. \Nothing at all—if you will believe me! The Laurelton railroad station was robbed last night, and it seemed necessary to arrest some one on sus- picion. Al a matter of fact. I'm one • f the faculty of the Moreton school, 'ad I'm taking a walking tour through New England. \I submitted to arrest, but on -my s:ay to the lockup my gorge rose at , be thought of the unnecessary tiro°. :Any to be thrust upon me, so I broke • • THODOITT YOU niftier .TAKE IT D0V74 AND PUT ON Tuff CLOTHES \ away and lost myself in this field.

Something black came into view among the stalks and then disap- peared. For an Instaht- she started and then laughed. Involuntarily the stranger's face relaxed into a smile. \They will trace you by your clothes —your appearance?\ she asked quickly. He glanced down at his plain gray clothes and nodded assent. \Come with me.\ She led the way through the corn, and he followed her. starting back with a muttered ejacula- tiou as a black toat sleeve came tuto view. \it's nothiug—it's only one of the scarecrows lii the corn.\ she reassured Mtn. \I thought you might take ft down and put on the clothes—they're black—and (he hat is different. They're all clean. You see, they've been out in the rain and\— She hesitated. \That's a glorious Idea of yours,\ he said gratefully. He pulled the man of straw from the post and tore away the tattered garments. \Now\— he said, but she had rustled away toward her basket and be heard her plucking juicy ears in the distance. When he came toward her with his gray clothes on his arm he forgave her the smile that lurked about her red lips. \The truly great are modest,\ he said, looking quizzically at the torn and shrunken garments that were dts- tributed more or less effectively over his large frame. \Lod now bow shall I thank you?\ \By making good your escape,\ she I said quickly. \We don't want to make n fidlure orellt now. Give tne your gray clothes. There—I'll put them in the bottom ot my basket, and some day when it's all over you may come for them. Now follow this row down to the open field. Cross that to the orchard, and in one corner among the apple trees , there is the shed where we sort apples for market. In the loft overbend there is clean straw where you can sleep till night, when it will be safe for you to go on. Goodbyl\ In an irietnnt she was gone and he was alone in the rustling corn. He heard the distant shout of it man's oke and another voice in reply Then he turned and went swiftly down the ;reen alley toward the orchard. the coining frost and the zest of the dying year.

We have been ex- pecting you to come back.\ -I am glad of that,\ he said simply. -Von saw the papers after I escaped'? You know that I spoke the truth to roe that day. They captured the real criminal.\ He regarded her steadily. \I read all about it and we were very glad.\ \Thank you. And I hope you were not annoyed that day you met the con- stable and his men.\ He was standing beside her, looking down at her sweet face with a certain earnestness In his own that bad never been there before. \Yes; 1 met them and told them had seen one man and that he looked !Ike a scarecrow.\ She laughed and added mischievously, \The constable said that couldn't be the men because be was looking for a dude.\ They laughed in unison as the stran- ger picked up a suit case and prepared to follow Alida toward the farrnbouse. When they were in sight of the com- fortable dwelling the man stopped and looked wistfully at the girl beside hen. \Do you know, I rather die to part with these 'scarecrow garments.' Ihey have served me more than one good turn.\ \More than one?\ repeated Midst fal- tering. \More than one,\ with an enigmatic smile. \So with your permission I shall carry them away with me, that once in awhile I may come back and play the scarecrow as I did this morning.\ \We shall not feed a scarecrow nail next May. when the corn is up, but you might collie and practice.\ And so It happened that when the following August came and the rustling corn formed arching green alleys Alida and the scarecrow mau walked togeth- er in the cornfield. . \And you do not * Object to haelug a scarecrow for a husband?\ be was say- ing tenderly, her hand lost in his grasp. \No Indeed!\ blushed Alicia happily., Chairs. Carlyle wins glory still with his re- flections about clotbes. Why has the chair never tempted essayists to rival \Sartor Resartus?\ It, too, may reflect authority. It, too, changes with salary and station. The swivel gives orders to the high desk stool. The straight back chair of the stenographer differs much in meaning front the ampler piece of urniture which stands before the ro top desk. In a wheel chair the chit may see the world, and after his pilgrimage, now an aged man. he may collect a little air. There are the chair orktate and the electric chair of exe- cution. The empty chair is a meta- phor for all that is most tragic in our lives. What are the dreams of the art- ist's stool and what of time milkmaid's and which eignify.the more? How the rocking chair has been written about and despised by the haughty traveler from abroad and how firm it stands, a great American conquest In domestic comfort! Around the chair also and the attitude in which we sit Ile associ- ations of mental stete: The editor sat in his sanctum, his counte- nance furrowed with care.
