Soldiers Will Get $60 Bonus.
Maj. R. E. Carwile, in charge of
the selective draft service organiza
tion in South Carolina, has issued the
following instructions as to procedure
for discharged officers, enlisted men,
.field clerks and nurses to procure the
$60 bc nus they are entitled to under
th? general revenue act:
"Section 1406 of the revenue act
approved February 24, 1919, author
ize? the payment of a bonus of $60
to officers, soldiers, field clerks and
nurses of the army upon honorable
-discharge, resignation or otherwise.
This bonus is not payable to the heirs
or representatives of any deceased
"These who are discharged hereaf
ter w ll receive this bonus on the
same roll or voucher upon which they
are paid their final pay.
"Those who have been discharged
and h ive received their final pay with
out the $60 bonus, should write a let
ter to the zone finance officer, Lemon
Building, Washington, D. C., stating
their services since April 6, 1917, the

caus i checks to be drawn and mailed

The discharge certificate will be re

"lt is estimated that at least .1,250,
000 persons have been discharged
from the service who are entitled to
the benefits of this act and while pay

as practicable, it will manifestly take
considerable time to write and mail

Fred Osborne laughed as he lit a
cigar. "But ray dear Stewart, I don't
want to many simple little Della. She
is a nice girl, but hardly my choice."
"Give that girl the advantages of
those city dolls, and she would out
shine them all," answered Stewart.

A young girl passing through the
corridor stifled the cry which rose to
her lips as she heard the remarks
of the two men.
She hurriedly entered her room, and,
throwing herself on the bed, broke
Miss Boynton (her hostess) had In

the week end at her beautiful country
As she lay there, a pinn suddenly
formed In her mind; and hastily ris
lng and bathing her eyes, she crossed
the hall and knocked at the door.
"Come in," called a melodious voice.
"Do sit down, I want to chat with
you." Then ns she noticed the girl's
red lips. "Why, Della, what's the
As Della confided her plan, the girl
smiled and nodded from time to time.
"Just you walt!" cried Beatrice
Lang. "'We'll made them tak* notice,"
and she gave Della a big hug. Then
they settled down to discuss the.great
The girls were very busy the next
few days, planning for the masquerade
ball, which the hostess was giving to
close her entertainment
At seven o'clock that evening Della
entered Beatrice's room, and seated
herself in a chair (placed for her) in
front of the dressing table.
Beatrice first pulled the lace cap
from her friend's head, revealing a
mass of beautiful golden curls. This
she piled up on the girl's head; then
catching up a lovely pink gown, she
passed it to her and told her to hurry
Della took from a bor a pair oi
Pil& .?ntin slippers, and silk stockings,
and putting them on, stood up for her
"My dear !" exclaimed Beatrice. "No
one would ever know you," and she
turned the girl to the mirror.
TH do," she laughed, as a rosy
flush spread over her face.
"Do!" Beatrice snapped. Tf every
one doesn't pronounce you the belle
of the ball I'll miss my guess."
She then picked up a mask and plac
ing it o^er the girl's face, gave her
a push saying: "Now, run along."
Meanwhile Della had reached the
ballroom and was immediately claimed
for the first dance, which was then
about to commence.
As she whirled about, her eyes fell
on a familiar figure.
"Who is that stunning-looking girl
with Jack Morrill?" asked Fred Os
borne of a youth standing near.
"Don't know," was the answer. "She
is a beauty. But one can't recognize
any of the girls in these confounded
things they're wearing."
"Aren't you masking?" Beatrice was
asked as she appeared.
"No," she answered. "I must be
away in a short while."
Della was in her second dance, when
a young man entered the rrfom. He
was rather effeminate, perhaps, but de
cidedly good-looking. Wandering about
he at length came up to Fred
"By Jove! What a beautiful girl !"
he ejaculated. "Can you tell me who
T couldn't," said Fred.
In some way the stranger so maneu
vered that Fred obtained only the last
two dances. ,
By this time his anger had reached
the bolling point; but to all questions
regarding the young man, Della an
swered by a light laugh.
At ll o'clock came the call to un
mask; as Della drew hers from her
face, Fred looked at her in astonish
"Why! It's little Della," he cried.
'Tes, little Della," she returned. "But

Fred turned and confronted the
stranger, who had so puzzled him.
Then, as his eyes rested on the face for
a moment a hearty laugh broke from
"Well, Miss Lang," he cried, "that
was one great joke on me."
Someone then spoke to Beatrice, and
Fred drew Della out to the beautiful
There, In the lovely moonlight, he
asked her to be his wife.
"But," the girl followed his question
by another, "do you forget a certain

Fred thought for a moment, then
said ; "You can't mer.n the day Stew
art and I were talking?"
"That ls just what I mean," said
"My dear," cried he, "will you for
give that thoughtless remark? For I
tell you truly, I did not intend Stewart
to have the impression you have
"Darling," he continued, "won't you
say 'yes,' and let me win forgiveness
for the speech?"
He drew her gently to him, and as
he looked into her eyes found his an

If friends of Della Osborne speak
truly-according to Fred's idea-there
never was a more beautiful girl than
his beloved wife.
