Tho crowd pushed through tho en
trance gates of the big county fnlr In
n continuous stream. Outside tho
great fenced in nrea was a maze of
vehicles of every description, from tho
humblest box wagon to the highly var
nished nnd luxuriously equipped mo
torcar. Inside the grounds there wns as
great a dissimilitude among the people

Phoebe Sweet had arrived that morn
ing In her father's comfortable two
seated carriage, all tho nvnllable space
about her plied with daintily wrapped
boxes, for Phoebe always exhibited at
the Corinth county fair, and her bread
nnd cake and canned fruit always car
ried away tho first prizes.
Today had been an exception, how
over, for one by one the coveted
prizes had been awarded to another ex
hibitor, who In yenrs past had been
among the vanquished, nnd. although
Phoebe had smiled bravely as she saw
her products passed by, she was bit
terly disappointed at the outcome.
nor father, arriving at the building
too late, found her at the door, flushed
and rather dejected. "Samo old story,
Phoebe, bird?" he asked affection
ately. She shook her head dolefully. "What
is the matter with me, father? 1
didn't take a prize not one!"
"Why-eeee!" exploded Mr. Sweet,
aghast. "What In thunder are those
fellows thinking about anyway? What
do they know about bread or cako or
pies, eh? Let me have a look."
no was about to pass her when
Phoebe caught his shoulder nnd shook
"It's no use, father, dear. Mrs. Sco
vlllo's products really are superior to
mine. Let us go back and look at
them, and please don't let any one
know wo are very much disappointed."
"I'll look as glad as I can that Mrs.
Whats-her-nnme has carried off all tho
honors," smiled Mr. Sweet as he led
his daughter down tho building to tho
exhibit of domestic productions.
A few people were gathered about a
table on which were sot forth several
loaves of beautifully baked bread.
some toothsome frosted cakes and a
row of vnrl-tiuted canned fruits. A
tall, sunburned young man was speak
ing to a short, plump, motherly look
"You've carried off honors for the
family, Aunt Sabrlna." he was saying
"Good land, George, I'm almost
ashamed to have taken it. That pret
ty girl almost cried when they passed
over her things with Just 'honorable
mention.' There's so few girls who
can cook nowadays that they ought to
bo encouraged Instead of an old wom
an like me stepping in. I declare, there
she is now!"
Phoebe had heard the frankly spo
ken words nnd had flushed warmly.
Mr. Sweet smiled good naturedly, and
tho woman, who was Mrs. Scovllle,
stepped forward with a pleasant, win
"You heard what I said," she remark
ed, holding out a plump hand to Phoe
be. "And I meant It too. Your things
look beautiful, nnd I'm sure they taste
as good as they look."
"Thank you, Mrs. Scovllle, you are
too kind," said Phoebe gratefully.
"This is my father; dad, this is Mrs.
Scovllle, who carried off tho prizes this
year. We must congratulate her."
Mrs. Scovlllo warmly insisted that
Phoebe's dainties were ns good as her
own if not much better, and much time
was spent in comparing tho two ex
"I used to see you carrying off the
prlzo every year," said Mrs. Scovllle
at last, "and I told George, my neph
ew, that It was too bad a girl should
carry off highest honors every year,
so I pitched In and tried for tho prizes,
and now that I've got them all I don't
feel a mite better. I feel just ns you
overheard mo telling George. And, bj
tho way, whero is George?" She look
ed nround for tho sunburned young
man who had been talking to her.
"If ho was tho tall young chap who
was talking to you when wo enmo
up I saw him going over toward tho
race track," remarked Mr. Sweet.
"Oh. dear met Of course ho would

mare Princess will bo In the three-year-old
trotting class. Would you caro to
go over and seo tho race?"
"We expected to. I've got a horse
In It myself," said Mr. Sweet. "My
hired man is going to drive."
"Georgo will drivo himself," observ
ed Mrs. Scovlllo ns they walked across
tho grass toward tho trotting course.
"I do hopo Princess will -win. ne's o
fond of her nnd has set his heart on
winning this race."
Phoebe, walking silently besido the
two older people, looked Hko a pretty
flower In her sheer whito dress, from
which her pink face, under n lacy
white hat, trembled llko n wind blown
blossom. Childless nnd widowed Mrs.
Scovlllo looked nt tho girl moro thnn
onco as Mr. Sweet told of how cleverly
his only child mannged tho motherless
"I don't know what I shall do if
Phocbo ever gets married," ho ended,
with a sigh.
"And that docs not seem unlikely,"
smiled Mrs. Scovllle over Phoebe's em
"I dlsliko every eligible young man,"
laughed Mr. Sweet good naturedly.
In tho grand stand Phoebe felt n glow
of Interest In Mrs. Scovillo's hnndsonic
nephew, Georgo Belden, who appeared
in a small sulky driving a dainty black
marc, no scanned the faces In the
grand stand and waved Ills cap toward
"Ah. there comes Sam, driving Dew
ey!" exclaimed Mr. Sweet as a straw
whiskered man came Into view on the
course. The horse Dewey, which had
won many n heat for Its owner, was a
long, rnwboned specimen of equine
flesh, but with an enormous power of
reserve strength that brought Its home
ly nose under the lino every time.
Sam saluted his employer, and Mr.
Sweet waved his lint, and Phoebe flut
tered a handkerchief. But her father
noticed a ttlugular lack of enthusiasm
In her maimer, ner eyes were not on
her father's horse, but were following
the course taken by George Bcldcn's
hlack nm os.
"If you go back on Dewey, daughter,
I shall feel thnt you have found anoth
er sweetheart than your old dad," ho
said In a low tone, and Phoebe's quick
caress and blushing protest seemed to
Presently they were away, nnd tho
crowd on the grand stand held Its
breath while there sounded the sharp
trot trot trot around the course.
From the very beginning Dewey took
the lead, and the other racers stretched
out obliquely on his left. The black
mare Princess held her white nose close
to the left wheel of Sam's sulky, and
Phoebe discovered herself harboring
She wanted Dewey to win, and she
wanted George Belden to win. Sho
didn't even know him to speak to, and
yet she didn't wnnt to see tho look of
disappointment como Into his eyes.
Yet she blushed at her own forward
ness in harboring such thoughts.
As for her father, Mr. Sweet had
taken tho purse at the trotting course
for many years, and would ho not be
disappointed If Dewey should fall him
this last year that ho would enter him?
So Phoebe turned her blue eyes away
from the black mare'and fastened them
loyally on Dewey's lank form and ex
erted all her mental powers to desire
that his homely old nose should once
more come under the wire in lead of
"Princess Is gaining gaining!" cried
Mrs. Scovllle Jubilantly, and then a
quick frown creased her forehead.
"Dear me. Mr. Sweet, I do wish
George's mare was not running against
your Dewey! It makes it hard to be
"Much obliged. Mrs. Scovllle. 1 shan't
take it hard If the youngster wins out.
We old folks must retire some day.
It's got down to a race between Prin
cess and Dewey after all."
"I know George's heart will be bro
ken," lamented Mrs. Scovllle as Dewey
flew under the wire to a loud demon
stration from the crowd. "He'd set
his heart on Princess winning this race,
and he was so confident that he plan
ned to take mo on a' trip to the moun
tains with the purse."
"I'm sorry, ma'am," and Mr. Sweet's
eyes twinkled with pleasure In spite of
himself. "But I'll promise to put
Dewey out to grass after this and give
the younger ones a chance."
"No, no! That wouldn't be 'what
George calls 'sportsmanlike,' " protest
ed Mrs. Scovlllo ns they emerged from
tho stand and waited near the gate for
Georgo Belden's appearance.
When ho came disappointment was
plainly written on his frank face, but
ho swallowed It when he discovered
that Mr. Sweet was Dewey's owner,
nnd with good grace ho congratulated
tho winner nnd wns presented to
Phoebe, whose few words of regret at
tho defeat of Princess seemed to com
pensate him for tho loss of the race,
for ho regained his spirits immediately
and proved to bo a very genial, com
panionable young man.
They paired off then, Mrs. Scovllle
and Mr. Sweet leading tho way, while
Phoobo and George lingered along, be
coming better acquainted ns they view
ed tho different exhibits and enjoyed
tho simple pleasures of the fair. i
George Belden inspected Phoebe's
cakes and bread and gravely asserted
that ho could seo no difference between
those toothsomo viands and his aunt's
products that had carried off tho hon
ors. Aud Phoebo blushed nnd dimpled
nnd thanked him nnd confided to him -
that sho had been almost sorry to seo
Dewey win tho race because because
sho had taken such a fancy to tho
dainty little Princess.
Of course Georgo invited her to take
a rido behind the black mnre, and ns
the Sweets lived ten miles distant from
Georgo Bcldcn's farm it became some
thing of a custom for tho young man
to drivo over and spend a Sunday with

And I think I won first prlzo In getting

Mr. Sweet kissed her lovingly and
