She passed him the cards, and, aftei shuffling, he turned over a card at time till he came to the queen of hearts. "That's you," he said. "Oh, how flattering:" "The six of clubs, the ten of spades, the three of clubs, the four of spades, the king of diamonds." lie paused "Well?" she asked. "That means a rich man is your Buitor." "I don't know any such." "You're not supposed to know just who loves you till you are told." "You think so?" I *$ur fall Shewing. :a-a:h & "I said not supposed to know." "Oh!"

The jack is that little black—I mean a dark gentleman whom you met"— "Don't get personal." b»»s "The jack, falling between the jack of hearts and the queen of spades and directly under the queen of hearts, in dicates that you prefer him and that the (lark lady loves the jack of hearts, a blond man, who prefers you." "And who is the jack of hearts?" lie sighed. Then lie went on dealing. The next important cards were the ten of clubs, that fell under the jack of clubs, and the ace of hearts, that fell under the jack of hearts, lie paused and looked serious. :•& "What's the matter?" she asked. .5 "A great ileal. The dark gentleman •has ten chances to the blond gentle man's one." "He hasn't. I mean I prefer blond men to brunettes." Two hearts fell, one on each side of the king of diamonds.

"What's the blond gentleman doing all this while?" she asked softly, her eyes bent on the cards. He cast a sharp glance at her and without reply went on dealing till the jack of hearts was surrounded by cards of his own suit. "Late in the game the blond gentle man seeuis to be finding more favor with the queen of hearts, but these clubs falling between it and the queen of spades indicate a complication be tween the dark girl and the blond gentleman." "What possible complication can there be?" she asked sharply. "Well, having been discouraged by the queen of hearts—that is, you—he might have gone so far with the dark lady as not to be able to withdraw." "She can't have much pride to hold him if he doesn't want to be held." She spoke with a great deal of asper ity. "You shouldn't have discouraged the blond gentleman." "How did I know"— She paused. He gave her time to frame what she had to say, but she failed to do so. "The blond gentleman certainly made his feelings plain." She stared at the cards without re ply. "Let's go one. Something may turn ui),"' he added. If there was any method in his deal ing it could not be discovered. She did not seem interested in the method, only in the result. lie dealt a num ber of the club suit about the jack of clubs. "This is strange," he said.

He look her hand in his and placed it 011 the six of hearts, saying: "The live and the six of hearts make eleven, or the jack. In other words, you will make the blond little man happy, won't you?" He waited some time for a reply, when he heard a faint "Yes." There were footsteps in the hall, and in came several young men and wo men. %r\ "What are you two doing?" lie had withdrawn his hand at the first sound and was dealing the cards Vigorously. "I am telling her fortune by a process of my own." lie went 011 dealing, the others look ing 011, trying to discover his rules of procedure. He married her to a dark and a rich gentleman, whereupon they reminded him that a girl can't many two men ui.iess one dies or is divorced after she has married him.

THE DENISON REVIEW, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1901. ••a**- A**» MMa. OtM.' o**«« •••MM 9 A Soldier's Vindication iOrisiiKi!.] Bob Hazard was a good Matured, devil may care sort of follow, whom everybody loved. IIis hair was llax. his eye was robin's egg blue, and he wore a perpetual smile 011 his lips. 11c looked so good that butter wouldn't melt in his mouth. When the Spanish-American war broke out. Bob. who was a member or the national in: i:\l el' his state, went with his regin.e.i to Cuba and fought, through the battles that resulted in the capture of Santiago. lie seemed insen sible to fear, and his companions said of liiin that he was too lazy to worry about gettms shot. Bob didn't get shot, but with that luck which conies to reckless people who rather deserve punishment he re ceived a wound just severe enough to enable him to show the scars of a war veteran. A Mauser bullet went through the biceps of his riirht arm, giving what might pass for two wounds, one where it went in and one where it went out. Hazard, not being able to handle a musket during this time, had abun dant leisure for mischief. Removing two balls from cartridges, he sent one to his best girl, with a letter in which lie said that to her and her alone he vrave the Spanish bullet with which he had been shot. The other he sent to his other best girl, with a similar mes sage. He enjoined each to keep the se cret of his preference, since he didn't wish to appear to attacli any impor tance to his wound. Now, the recipients, Miss Edith Spencer and Miss Delia Marsh, were extremely feminine young ladies. While neither were in love with the yo.ing soldier, both were proud of the preference. Each knew that the other counted 0:1 Private Hazard as one of her especial friends at the front in those exciting days when not to have an especial friend at the war made a girl feel and appear like a "wall flower" at a ball. The next time Miss Spencer met Miss Marsh after the re ceipt of her bullet she asked, with a triumphant sivarkle in the eye and toss of the head: "Heard from Bob Hazard lately?" The response was doubtless influ enced by the questioner's manner. "Yes the poor fellow has been severe ly wounded." "I know," replied the other, with an air of superiority. "He wrote me all about it." "So he did ine, and sent me a keep sake." "He sent me the bullet that struck him." Miss Marsh gasped for breath. "I have that bullet," she said, "in my escritoire." "And I have it iu my jewel box." This was the preliminary part of a conversation that led to the exhibition of two bullets, each with a polished surface, which is never found on one that has been fired from a gun, to say nothing of being sent through a man's arm. Had the girls been disinterested they would have smiled. As it was, they vowed that when Private Robert Hazard returned he should explain this strange proceeding and pronounce o:i the genuineness of the ball that had wounded him. When the war ended, it virtually be gan for Bob Hazard. An enemy awaited him which would have strick en terror into any man of less bravery. His regiment marched through the city from which it had departed with flying colors and martial music. The first communication lie received after being mustered out was a note from Miss Spencer asking him to come and see how she had mounted the keep sake he had sent her. 1-Ie called that evening and found Miss Spencer and Miss Marsh together. On the table was an open jewel box that had held a pair of solitaire earrings, and in place of the earrings were two bullets. The expression on the faces of the girls was ominous. "Will you please," said Miss Spencer, "tell 11s which of these two bullets wounded you?" Bob looked at the leaden missiles. Their polished surfaces should have brought the blush of shame to his face, but they did not. Indeed lie took 110 note of anything, lie was thinking how to wiggle out of the scrape he had brought upon himself. Finally, with an injured air he asked permission to take off his coat, which was granted. Removing the coat and, a pair of jrohl sleeve links, he rolled up his shirt sleeve. "This wound." lie said, pointing to the scar where the missile that hfnl really struck him 0:1 the inner surface of (lie arm, "was made by the bul!"l 011 the right. Tills," pointing to the scar where the original missile had left his arm. "was made by the bullet 011 the left." The girls looked at each other. "You two young ladies," he con tinued. "as especial friends of mine. I thought might like to have a bullet that had struck a simple soldier of (he Spanish war. Having a bullet for each wound. I was enabled to send one to each of you." Again the girl-s looked at each other. "1 told you," began Miss Spencer. "And I told you." interrupted Miss Marsh, "that there was some"—ssrss-^: "That you were very unjust." "Do you mean"— flashed Miss Marsh. "Girls," said the soldier. "I am really at fault. I should not have made so much of so trifling a matter." The victory was with the villain. Neither girl had loved him till his fraudulent vindication, his display of modesty. Then both loved him—whllrt he—he loved them both.

Furnished by Clay Robinson Co, the Well Known Omaha Firm: South Omaha, Nov. 13th. 1906. Very light offerings have been noticeable in the dry-lot cattle divi sion. Nothing very good has been offered, although anything with good finish would find ready sale. The pincipal supply has consisted of short- 1 fed and only warmed up grades and considering the fact that so many I good grass westerns are being receiv- I ed, these .partly fatted grades are considerably discriminated against. and are materially lower than ten days ago. Btst kinds of corn-feds would sell around $6.00 to $6.25 good kinds $5.50 to $6.00. The better kinds of shoit-feds are selling at $4.75 to $5.00 fair kinds at $4.25 and down. Supplies of butcher still consist of grassers and the trade has held at the decline of 10 to 15 cents early last week. Good to choice kinds quotable at $3.25 to $4.00 fair to good $2.65 to $3.25 canners and cutters $1.75 to $2.50. There* has been strong tone to the stocker and feeder trade, and the light and medium weights seem to be in better shape, as concerns the producer. As the season advances more roughness is obtainable and these as well as the heavy weights, which have been the best sellers, have met keen competition. Good to choice feeding steers are selling at $4.25 up to $5.00 fair to good $4.00 to.-M.25u good to choice light and medium weights $3.90 to $4.25 fair to good $3.40 to $3.90. The hog market shows further weakness today, although of small proportions, about a nickel decline from yesterday's prices. The bulk sold at $5.95to $6.u0 with top at $6.15. Clay, Robison & Co.
