BIT! THE BITER
By GEORGE ELMER COBB.
"I would do it, if it was only out o
splto!" declared Floronco Wood.
"Do you consider Mr. Ransom so de
sirable a party that he is really worth
it?" challenged Norma Williams.
"I'd do most anything to get oven
with Verda Wayne!"
It was veritable school girl chatter,
the fiery pronouncement of a dark-
skinned beauty and the vague com-
quite characteristic. Hers was a
strange and unhappy make-up. In a
way, Florenco was handsome, bright,
and, when she liked, almost fascinat
ing. Within a year, however, Well
villo had become divided into two so
cial factions. Tho acknowledged
leader of tho one, Verda Wayne, had
become tho society rival of Florence.
Hence, war was imminent, In which
Florence was the aggressor.
Of course, tho iwo factions kept
track of the doings one of the other,
and tried to outdo each in what the
other had done in tho way of novel
entertainments and new fads.
"Who is this remarkable, much
feted Mr. Ransom, anyway?" ques
tioned Norma of Florence, now.
"The 'remarkable' feature does not
at all apply, according to my Judg
ment," was the rather scornful reply.
"The source of my interest fs that ho
is said to bo engaged to Verda. He
is here on a viBit to the family and
comes from anottfer state. A friend
of mine says that he is of a very
wealthy family. The Waynes have
boasted of their acquaintanceship with
tho rich Ransoms for a long time
"And your idea, Florence, is what?"
"I intend to pay back Verda for
some of the things she has done to
"Oh, you know very well!" retorted
Florence, with the pettishness of a
person consciously in the wrong and
nettled by that conviction. "She and
her set practically ignore us."
"Well, don't we have our own crowd
and lots of fun, as well as they?"
asked Norma pointedly.
"That isn't it. Before Verda came
upon trio boards with her soft, smirk
ing way, I was consulted in every
thing going on. Now "
"You just imagine all that, dear,"
insisted Norma soothingly. "You are
quite the queen of our little circle.
Do Moat Anything to Get Even
With Verda Wayne."
the Waynes go their way and
we ours. Come now, don't Bpoil your
pretty face with that disfiguring
scowl.' With a dozen suitors at your
feet, you should not covet Verda's
fiance. I have seen him, and he ap
pears to me to be a decidedly dense
and ordinary person."
"I have met him twice," explained
Florence. "I have made an Impres
sion upon him, and I intend to fol
low It up. Just as I said, if it is only
for spite, I am going to win Verda
Wayne's lover away from her."
AH UiIb was the outburst of a bit
ter siren nature that could not brook
any invasion upon Its fancied rights.
It was true that the former social
supremacy of Florence Wood had been
challenged, but it was the sweet,
natural ways of. Verda Wayne that
had won her adherents. The Wood
set considered themselves progres
sive, but were really loud. The more
sedate and socially solid element had
chosen Verda for their fair deserving
queen. Florence milked and fancied
all kinds of plottings against her. She
declined all invitations from Verda
to ordinary village functions. Sho
had isolated and embittered her own
special friends, and the situation bad
grown to bo decidedly strained and

ing on in a social way, but be played
tennis afternoons with a quiet lit
tle group, and evenings was seen in
their automobile. He was not the
kind of a fellow, one would say, to
appeal to a lively but fastidious little
lady like Verda. Howeyer, Florence

time, she Jumped at conclusion aad

set her plans to ncnievo what to her
would be sweet revenge.
She Was a natural born coquetto,
and meeting Mr HariBom once on the
street knew that the flashing artil
lery of her eyeB had produced a cer
tain effect. Tho second time he loi
tered near to her, smiling. The third
time the conventionalities of the
quiet little village wero invaded by
both. They spoke.
"Miss Wayne has told me about
you more than once," asserted Mr.
"Indeed?" replied Florence, bri
dling. "Oh, yes, she speaks very highly of
you. She Is going away for a week
unexpectedly called to the bedside of
an invalid aunt. I shall miss all tho
kindness she has shown me. In fact.
I shall be quite lonely."
Affairs turned Florence's way very
speedily after that. The siren ways
soon won the pliable heart of young
Ransom. It was a facile conquest,
and Florence wondered at it as she
got better acquainted with her suit
or, for such he quickly became. She
saw less of engaging qualities in him
and marveled that he had attracted

It was the following day when Flor

sensational nature warmed. All the
time her main thought was the dis

would come to Verda Wayne when
she learned that her fiance had proven

mused Florence. "I learn they are

cried Norma Williams excitedly the
following Monday, meeting Verda just
as she arrived on the morning train.
"What is it?" inquired Verda.
Florence has eloped with your

with a faint smile. "You mean the
gentleman who has been our guest
for the past two weeks?"

Norma, staring in wonder because the
announcement did not jn the least dis

Verda, in her usual sweet way. "It i3

There came a telegram to Mr.

Woods having some money, Mr.
Harold Ransom felt that he had not
made so bad a bargain.
Florence, however, made him take
her away from Wellville when the
sterling pure Mr. Ransom led Verda
to the altar. 'She never again alluded
to her keen trick and its unexpected

OWE DEBT TO THE BEAVER
Good Work Done by Industrious tittlo
Animal Has Not Been Sufficiently
' The men who fought the Indians
in the early days of the republic and
later fought the Indians and British
combined have several times recorded
their gratitude for that great engineer
whose scientific name is Castor can
adensis, and whose everyday name is
beaver. Ho was a builder of dams to
such excellent purpose, this Castor,
that the water of creeks was held
back, flow of summer streams was
checked and lakes were made of
brooks. By means of these works,
meager and "fluctuating waterways
were rendered navigable and troops
and supplies were transported quickly
But the beaver's fine coat caused
the gratitude toward him to be re
duced to an impracticable sentiment
Trappers soon made him a creature
rare and furtive In this part of the
country. His skin became the cur
rency of trade. He was the equiva
lent of flour and sugar and calico and
powder and lead. In ten years, the
two big fur companies of tho United
States and Canada received 1,570,000
beaver skins, and the "kill" even at
this time averages 75,000 per annum.
Nevertheless Castor Is regaining some
of his lost ground. Because of strict
trapping laws, ho is multiplying in
numbers in tho forest and swamp dis
tricts to the north of Lake Superior,
and in parts of northern Michigan
there are thriving families.
If hunters will let the beaver1 alono.
or be a little temperate in their
shooting, and farmers will not break
down his dams, he might come back
even to Ohio. Considering the big
part the little animal has played in
winning and settling and bringing ma
terial blessings to the middle West
It would be only fair and decent to
give him a show if ho did decide to re
turn to his home country Toledo
I PLAYING THE GAME :
By EUGENE BONNIE.
At tho llttlo station an exceptionally
large number of Plalnvllle's citizens
were assembled in honor of the de
parting bride and groom nervously
watting the arrival of the east bound
limited. Special directions had been
telegraphed to the' porter to suitably
decorate two chairs in the parlor car,
and upon the arrival of tho train at
Plalnvllle to give the newly married
couple marked attention.
"All aboard!" rang out the vibrant
voice of the conductor, hardly waiting
for the train to come to a stop.
With a mad rush for the platforms
of the cars tho passengers jostled and
stumbled in heedless disregard, and In
the midst of a shower of rice and a
volley of verbal well-wishes the last
passengers took their share of the ill
directed missiles good naturedly, and
disappeared inside of the coaches.
Inadvertently the bride and groom
followed close in the wake of a young
man and woman who were entering
the parlor car. The grinning face of
the porter as the door opened met
with a epcedy retreat, and the bride
wheeled about and entered the second
coach, leaving the perplexed husband
with no choice but to follow.
The face of tho porter broadened
with a radiant smile as he ostenta
tiously ushered the entering couple
into the decorated chairs bearing un
mistakable evidence of premeditated
The young woman's preoccupation
in struggling with a rebellious veil
prevented her from noting the decora

"An unusually mirthful lot of pas

woman, surveying the aggregation in

Her eyee caught the ends of a rib

flushed scarlet, "what can we do?
They are that is they think we are
the bride and groom."
"But we are not, are we?" replied
the man, indifferently.
"Call me Don," he interrupted, as
he leaned forward touched by her ap
peal, "we can do but one thing."
"Play the game. Look like a blushing
bride, act well your part, I will mine."
His enthusiasm Increased.
"Married peoplo call each other by
their given names, I believe," he In
"On two hours' acquaintance?"
"I have known you several years,"
he ventured, looking into her eyes.
"Don," she epoke the name natur
ally, "tell me something about your
self." "Some other time when we are not
playing," he answered.
"But," she objected, "there may be
no other time."
"There will be," with confidence;
"now that I have found you, I am not
going to purrender you so easily."
"I am living In Evanston," she vol
unteered. "So am I," he answered.

heard from the other end of the coach, I

with a deep sense of satisfaction.
"Your friends didn't come, Minerva,"
"So I see," ehe replied, almost
coldly. "You forget the game is over.
I am no longer Minerva."
"May I call a cab?" he questioned,
disregarding her rebuke.
"That will not be necessary; my

were standing near a rosebush where
vines were wound around the columns
