"Tou ahall not escape me thla time, oung lady," he vowed. '.'I'm going lark to buy a diamond, and you're going back to your last year of acliool teaching." For two yeara now Rurtt had been trying to make Slliyl rrallre that he aa absolutely necessary to her hap llneaa, but ao far Sibyl had not aeemed crloualy convinced of It. "She la Just Ave feet two of mis chief and sweetness, apunk and dear, tantalizing way," groaned Hurtt, as lie heard her quick step approaching. "All right, Hurtt; I'll put an enor noun lunch up for your benefit, and be ready In an hour." "Heady for anything?" leaned Burtt. "Tea, young man. ready to make you tehave!" flashed Slhyl, aa she pushed fclm out of the kitchen and locked the tfonr. The row down Ihe river was no per fect that neither cared to talk. Sev eral times Burtt alarted lo apeak, but liarrily dared break the MII. He liopc-d the golden sunshine, the spar kling water and fragrant woods would rnmblne to aofien the heart of a cer tain perverse and wilful person. "How peaceful it Is Irere," said 81 fyl, dreamily, as she trailed her hand through the clenr water. "Work and rrnblenis seem far away; I feel aa though we were In fairyland." "We are," said Hurtt softly, lean ing toward her, "and you are the princess floating with Ihe prince lo " "Floating on a rock If you are not more cnivful," tartly warned .Sibyl, as the hont drifted. Bunt's color rose and he hnstlly banged the stib.H't. When they reached the Island he led the way through a new path where Sibyl had never been before. She cried out In t)nilrutlon when he Anally stopped .d put down Ihe banket lunch. They vcrf In a grove above Ihe river, sur ronntlrd by inns and flowers, with velvety menrtows stretching behind them, where some row a Kccmcd hut a part of a perfect p'cture. Sibyl selected a large, flut rock and prend the tempting array of good things from the basket. "Aunt Jane sure knows what a fel low likes," Burtt Mild its he Miiiiched a chicken sandwich. "I'll htive you tmderst.md thnt I nm head cook," laughed Sibyl ns she Marled to get the Imtllc of coTee. Sudtlcnly she gave n shriek, spilling Ihe coffee over her dress ns she turned to run. "Help! Burtt! Drive them awny! (Qulrk, quick!" lurlt looked up In bewilderment and il pointed to the cows, who were venturing nearer. "(.Hi, they're all coming! Help me up this tree! I've always been scared Miff of cows!" cried Sibyl, and with f Jump, Burtt swung her up to a big rndi and she clauihered to a con venient notch. "Can you drive them awny, Burtt? -ne thev fierce? Please hurry!" bhe tilled from tbe refuge. Burtt looked at the flushed, plead ing girl a moment, i einembcrlng that It was the first time he had ever seen ber anything but her sure, confident wjf. His chin squared and hla eyes lighted triumphantly. "Yes, Sibyl," he said, deliberately, as he settled himself at tbe foot of the tree, "1 can drive them away and it.en I can take you out of that tree l ut I'm not goin a. to !" . "Why. Burtt! How b,r .vmi !" -Kcit MMl." commanded Burtt, mid tt,e nMiflilsbed glt'l ob-vetl.

There was n dead silence for several rnot.ents. and then a soft voire floated down. "I never knew before that uidd looked like a cow and I'm awful turnery".

Big Bunch of New State Laws Went Into Effect Thursday AH new laws of Nebraska enacted by the legislature of 1921, other than those which had the emergency clause and took effect immediately, the four which have been suspended by referendum proceedings, the Smith Bread law and the Keed-Norval lan guage act, which are being attacked in court, become effective Thursday. The IJced-Norval law can be en forced anywhere in the state by county attorneys or other local of ficials, as the injunction issued ' by Judge Button runs only against the governor and attorney general. It in probable, however that law-enforce-ing oiriccM will generally wait until the case has been heard and decided in the supreme court, before acting under the new statute. In the mean time, the old Siman law can be invoked to prevent foreign language instruc tion in the grade schools. Probably the most important of all the new laws now in effect for the first time is the revenue act, passed as sen ate file No. fi5. It makes sweeping changes in the system of taxation under which state and local adminis tration has been carried on for eigh teen years past. The old plan of bas ing taxes on one fifth of actual valu ation is abolished and all levies will hereafter be made on the full value. We take it that these predicted com et will hit the earth only relatively speaking. Name it and you can have it is no easy proposition when it comes to one of those Russian towns.
