sympathized. "Well, perhaps some

The mother shook her head. "No.

A step on the porch silenced her.
A moment later Amos entered. His
face wore an annoyed look and ho
spoke fretfully.
"So you have commenced without
me, have you? It's just as well, for
I was kept late, having another

need of everybody getting a cold
supper on that account."
"I hope your supper's - not cold,

The farmer made an effort to
speak more pleasantly, glancing at
Elizabeth as if to learn what her
moftd was.
"That's all right, Martha. I guess
the supper's gopd enough anyway.
I suppose. Lizzie, you'll be. glad to
know that I've given Talak notice

am on my guard now, and I do not

"Well, if he's all that worries
you, you can go alone to your
heart's content soon," Amos re
marked. "Talak's month's up a

you can't avoid paying him up to
the time he leaves, Mr. Chapln."
"Legally, perhaps I can't," the
farmer admitted with a sly grin.
"But the poor fool doesn't know
that. There ought to be some law
to protect employers. If a man
leaves before his month's up he
ought to lose money by it." *
"Suppose we turn it the other
way around," Butler argued. "If a

accused. "Yet now you are standing
up for him."
"*Not only was I in favor of your

he had not been in earnest in threat

"of course I'll pay him what's com
