than to Inhale their fragrance.
"Mrs. Waverly,” she said, "I believe
you are a most peculiar woman.

of the members of my sex.
"I do not think you are of a Jealous

"I hope I am neither of these, Mlhr
Fairlow. I have always felt that to
be Jealous argued one’s self 'nferior
and to be suspicious would make me
feel mean ”
“I wish you would let me be your

"Why, my dear girl, I cannot have
too many friends,” I answered, “that
I should refuse that request of any
one. You and I have much in accord
I know. We like the *ame books, the
same plays and. Indeed. I have always
thought that, of all Dick’s women
friends, I would like you best If we
only knew each other better."
”1 want to be your friend—your real

cut her hand. "You believe that, don't
you?”
The appeal to m> faith in her struck
me rather strangely, but, seeing the
tears In her eyes, I bent and kissed
her. I do like her very much and I
am glad that l have caliad on her, for
by doing so I have gotten to her as
I never have before.
When I arrived home that night I
told Dick what BIMBOf had said TN
only remark he made was: "I knew
you girla would like each other. You
are much alike In many things.”
Then he smoked a long while In
silence, and when I said: "Dick, I’m
sleepy; I’m going to bed.” lie raine
over and gathered me In hh» arms, al
most fiercely, and whispered;
"Margie, I dc love you and >ou

itself as the in-nif'diute cause ot
Austria's defeat in Servla. Rw
olutionury outbreaks apparently
have born occurring, not only in
Hungarian ton ns. Out also in the
r luur.Hrian parliament. The pi*

to have threatened, In thinly
veiled language, that Hungary
would separate from Austria and
continue the war solely in accord
lino with Hungarian interest, un
less better protection were afford
ed the Hungarian civilian popula

Apparently. this attitude fright
ened the Viennese government, as
well It might, and large bodies of
troops were withdrawn from Ser
vla, to expel the Russians from
Hungary, It seema, therefore,
that the victory of the Serbs was
due to the diversion created by
Russia in Hungary. By sending
strong detachments through the
Carpatrian passes from Galicia.
Russia relieved the Servian pres
sure and rescued her Slav pro
tege.
To have accomplished this, the
Russians undoubtedly penetrated
far Into Hungary. Cossack raid
ers are said to have ridden with
in 60 miles of Budapest. Wheth
er they really did get so far, or
not, there is no doubt but that
the Hungarian government was
growing alarmed for the safety of
its capital at the time when the
Austrians were making their vic
torious march through Servla.
An attempt is now being made
In Vienna to put the blame of the
Servian defeat upon Gen. Po

LAWYERS ARE TOLD OF
PROPOSED LAW CHANGES
Recommendations for sweeping
changes in the methods of court prac
tice and procedure in Michigan, were
heard, Saturday afternoon, by mem
bers of the Detroit Bar association -
and the lawyers’ club, In a meeting
in the Hotel Cadillac. Alva M. Cum
mins, of Lansing; J. Clyde Watt, of
Saranac, and Mark W. Stevens, of
Flint, members of the commission ap
pointed two years ago by Gov. Ferrto
to prepare bills for the revision and
consolidation of statutes regulating
court practice, presented their report
to the lawyers, and explained the pro
posed changes.
The purpose of the proposed revis
ion is to simplify the methods of prac
tice and procedure. Laws which con
flict with one another have been re
vised. in Instances where two or
more statutes appear on the books, all
having the same object, the commit
tee has consolidated them. The revis
ions and consolidations, if enacted
Into law by the legislature, will save
much time for attorneys, and elimi
nate unnecessary delay, say members
of the commission.
