Rather does he try to hide the memory of such events, for to be scooped is as much of a dis grace in th,e newspaper world as it was to be bluffed by a one-eard draw before the building of the Roosevelt dam. But once in a blue moon a reporter nay be scooped and may tell about it, and this opportunity has now come to one in Phoenix. For months this reporter has "cov ered" a certain "beat," as newspaper parlance has it, and in one office he has known during all that time a oung man and a young woman. It was the custom of the reporter to sit and talk with them every after noon, commenting lightly upon the events of the day and otherwise con ducting himself as has been the cus tom of reporters from time imme morial when congenial people and comfortable offices are in his territory. Now. the reporter knew that the young man sat directly opposite the young woman at a large desk, ana that whenever he raised his eyes he must see her. The reporter aiso knew that the young lady was direct Iv oDnositA the young man and did not-have to move an eyelid more than an eighth of an inch to look at his blue eyes and his dark nair ana me stubble on his chin. But, even know ing all these things, there was never a hint that either the young man or the young woman had any inten tions of looking at anything but their work. The o?tce was a moaei vi efficiency; letters were dictated In the coldest tones ana transcriDeu with the very essence of speed and accuracy; conversation concerning the business ot the office was pre cise and to .e point, and never a hint was given that all was not as it should be. But this was the case. The little god whose distinguishing characteristics are a disregard for clothing and a delight in setting young men and young women before an altar where their ensuing battles may be blessed had raised his bow in the corridor one day and with un- errine aim had plumped two ar rows homer-one deep in the heart of the young man. and one just as deep, or deeper, in tne neari or me young lady. But no sign of the wounds was given at least to the outside world and the reporter, watchful and worldly-wise and perhaps a trifle cvnical. sat and talked with the young man and the young woman In complete ignorance of the wdnder that had been worked by the kid with the ribbon across his little tummy. Then the vacation days came. The young man left without leaing an address, and soon there after the young woman announced she was going to California "to meet her mother, and the reporter wrote short note of the fact which was duly published. The vacation days ended, and the young man and the young woman returned and every thing seemed just as it had been before. When the young woman was seen the office for the first time by the reporter, he greeted her as he had done a hundred times before: ' 'Lo, Miss Lawrence!" Then someone pulled his sleeve and said: "Why. don't you know? "Know what?" "Know that there Isn't any 'Miss Lawrence' any more?" And, sure enough, on her lett nana gleamed a chaste wedding ring, and on her cheeks was the blush that brides alone know how to wear. Miss Lawrence Miss Audi-a Law rence had become Mrs. Stewart M. Bailey, the wedding having been held at the home of Mrs. Frank D. Lovett at Hollywood, Calif. And the office is the office of the prohibition di rector in the Physicians building. where anyone who does not believe that Mr. and Mrs. Bailey, who still gaze at each other across the desk, "scooped" a perfectly good reporter, may see them between the hours of 9 o'clock in the morning and 4:30 o'clock in the afternoon, and they will be only too glad to Terify this account. WRESTLING AGAIN TO BE STAGED HERE Public wrestling matches again will be staged in Phoenix. This de cision was reached by the city com mission during the course of their regular meeting yesterday after L. R. Templin had presented a petition rep resenting several business men of the city and requested that the American Legion be permitted to conduct the wrestling matches. There was spirited discussion potn for and against the wrestling game as known in Phoenix before Commis sioner Adams put the formal motion before the commission body. Mayor Plunkett opposed the renewal of pub lic wrestling exhibitions here but the votes of Commissioners Adams, Bar- nett and Henderson carried the mo tion. Commissioner Irvine was ab sent from the session. No details were given as to who would promote the wrestling matches here nor when the first of the shows would be staged. General dissatis faction with some of the wrestling shows here last year caused the city to place a ban on the game. o WEDS W.S.SHELBURN China has a tradition ' that when the rice crop fails the yield of bam boo grain Is greatest. 0 .Eighty per cent of the forest fires In the United States In the last w years were due to human carlessness.
