BODY TO GET MONEY
Boulder, Colo., Jan. 14. A young
woman of Colorado Springs, appar
ently driven to desperation by pover

rolls. Kane's disappointment was

failed and finally settled on "Rose
of the Rancho," from which he read
"You know I don't like this," Kane
told Williapi the butler and William
offered to share his quarters. Kane
