Three men had come down from the city for a fortnight's sojourn on the Harder fruit farm. They were wide-awake, up-to-date chaps, and they had won their easy going, way into the hearts of the Harder household, except Jim. Even Pa Harder relaxed his grim features at their jokes, while Ma. Harder sim ply revelled in the delight of their merry company. But Jim institnctively resented their presence and their condescend ing familiarity. He felt awkward and ill at ease, and was grudging of re sponse to their addresses. His atti tude aroused all their teasing pro pensities, and they made him the butt of many a joke, dubbing him "Slow Jim" and "Easy Mark." Their chaffing, however, was the least of Jim's troubles. The real heartache lay in the fact that Lucy Buskirk had gone to the city for a visit. He had always...
