But Lizzie Adiinis wus not thinking rf Si Wlnton, whom her mother had elected as her be:iu. HI was not un willing that he should be the subject t jrenial approbation, for the Ad ms fumlly wus the first In the coun ty, and It was a colhiternl branch, the VVInthrop AduuiseM, who owned the trig new cotton mill which drew thou sands of young people front the moun tain dint nets to work there. Lizzie Adams, however, was of the poorer branch. Her small wage was all that sustained their family of two and before that they hud lived la the ut most penury. . Lizzie Adams was not going to the Wage. Instead she made tier way toward the brand-new brick mansion f her cousin ilerlx-rt, who hnd come from college the week before to take charge of the mill upon the occasion of his father's sudden demise. They bad been sweethearts In the good old Otys, before Wlnthrop Adams had Msen from a country atore-keeper to a twuntry magnate, by a shrewd Invest taenL But doubtless Flerbert had long go forgotten her. For she had not keen him for four five years, it must She was not hoping to meet Her bert ; ahe was Just taking a stroll, at tired In her best hat and hef one Wearable gown. Those who seek, find. Lizzie met Herbert driving a smart trap, and by bis side sat a young lady, dressed In what seemed to Lizzie the height of fashion. And because there was hard ly room to pass the trap stopped, and Herbert recognized her. and bowed nd smiled, end. the trap disappeared behind her. "Tou haven't quarreled with Si Win ton V asked her mother, crossly, when Ltsxie returned. "No, I didn't meet hlra," answered the girl. Two minutes later she was Stifling her sobs upon her bed tn the little room adjoining the Invalid's. It llerbert had no thoughts for her Upon the street, how would he greet ber In the mill when, dressed In her sorting clothes and covered with lint, he tolled at the machine? She could Hot bear to drag herself Into the place tiext morning. The girls stood there, beavy-eyed, sullen of face, dreaming of Sunday and of their beaux. "Now, then, don't stand dreaming there 1" shouted Miss Jones, the fore woman, to Lizzie. "Don't you know yout.g Mr. Adums Is coming round to tnsjevt this place this morning?" It was toward noon when Herbert Adams came In, escorted by the fore man. Halfway down he came upon Utile. He must have seen her. Hut be did not even look at her. At tJoo.i Lizzie crept away to spend the half hour's recess somewhere un der the trots. Suddenly a shadow fell across her ath and she found herself looking up Into the face of bronzed young mon Whose eyes were be;it upon her with tmtutxtakable Interest.

"Why," exclaimed the young man In astonishment, "really.

Inebriated cent in a (Titcn house was discovered, after the "Good wtrnt sifrn had been flashed on the screen, still fitting in the back row, holding in his arms an enormous bou riuet of roses. "I'm waiting to take Marv Pickforci home." he evnlni the ushers. . "Women are funny," admits one of them. We'll be eqifally frank and sny that there are times when men strike us about the same way. TODAY'S BEST STORY. (Honestly, we've read better ones.) The Ipfldinir Inrlv tf nn trt theatrical company met the leadmg man of an outgoing troupe at the railroad station. "Did you have a rood hones her?" she asked engerly. "o, pretty small," he admitted "Too bad but perhaps you got r. lot of applause." "Well." he hesitated. "tW dog that managed somehow to get into ine piace and once I thought I noticed him wag his tail." Speaking of chilly audiences, Alli ance has the world cheated. It's true that now and then th vmi.WH'o ia fairly punk, but a quartet composed in jennie L.ina, jime. Bembrich, John McCormack and Caruso wouldn't get more than a ripple of applause here. It's got to the point where, when a man applauds an act, people nearby look at him accusingly, in the belief that he's in the employ of the house. THE LATESTKID STORY After having been repeatedly warn ed never to speak a profane word, the five-year-old son came to his mother to report the wickedness of one of his playmates. "Oh, mother," he ejaculated, "Tom my said an awful word. He said he sh.i1 the name of the man who runs Hell." A brace of high school girls, with their sweeties, sat in the gallery a the movie the other night. Wonder how they felt when the hjrhts went on at the close of the second show, dis closing the presence of one of the profs. . . , THAT DARNED MAKEUP (Cozad Local.) " "In our issue of week before last, we mentioned that N. M. York, our county attorney, was a Cozad visitor and just below it stated that nature sometimes made mistakes in that she sometimes put all the bone in the head and none in the back. These were two separate items, but through error of not putting a dash rule between them, will cause some people to think that the Local was trying to give Mr. York a dig." After Bruce Wilcox of Bridgeport learns that all Alliance agrees with The Herald when it charged the Mor rill county men with bad faith, he may proceed to call the entire town down for being misinformed. That oli" pirate has more nerve than a govern ment mule, and he's about aa thick. Remember the stories about the Hellish Hun plots that used to be so frequent during the war? Well, an other one of them has just been un covered in Denver, where a German has accused his wife of attempting to take his life by feeding him thousand legged worms mixed with carrots. Either the carrots or the worms would have been bad enough, but the com bination Ach, Gottl , 'S a funny thing how 'a mere pho- tograph can attract so much atten tion. And yet, come to think of it, it was the pose which drew attention to "September Morn." UYou never can tell where voull find wit. A Nebraska" City woman found a piece .of rubber in some sausage she purchased,' and hurried down to bawl out the 'butcher. "Madam," he told her, "it's simply another indication of the way the automobile is supplanting the horse." LIES FOR TODAY. ''Today's Weather." "I was too young to remember that."
