Gasaway left last Fri day for Chicago where they will i attend the National Broom Manu facturers Association which is in session there this week. The east ern trade journals have heralded this meeting with much anticipa tion. The trend or ideas in the east seems to indicate that the price has been, in a measure af fected by this meeting, and have been many who expessed the opin ion that broomcorn would come up again, after this meeting. Manufacturers have not been buy ing heavily, and many have been waiting for this meeting at which they expect to find out the true condition of the broomcorn situa tion over the country in general, While there has been more corn this year than was generally ex pected, yet it is our opinion that there is not such a big crop as the eastern markets expect. For that reason, when the manufacturers find out the real condition, they should buy freely, and the demand from the east will strengthen our markets here. On the other hand if the opinion of the manufactur ers meeting is that there is a big crop of broomcorn this year, the price will go down until they are all out of brush. The market here for the past three weeks has been slow, but little brush coming in. The de mand was light,' and prices have ranged from $35 per ton to $140, with but little good brush on the market. There have been a trifle over 350 cars shipped this season, and there are probably a hundred cars in storage here. There is a general feeling around town that the market here will pick up, but there are few who can give a lo gical reason for their belief, Un til the market here shows an in crease over present prices, there will be quite a lot of broomcorn held by the producers in this ter ritory.

For the finest apples, see Black Brother's At the Junction Julian Grove, burdened with a heavy suitcase and an humbled pride, descended the steps of the yellow day coach that formed half of the only train on the Lindon Valley road. He sat himself on an unused baggage truck to wait until the south-bound train should come along. - Julian preferred the winter sunlight and the crisp air to the lifeless heat of the big stove and the reek of many bodies. He was going humbly to con fess his faults, and he wanted to keep clear headed that they might remain fresh In his mind. 'He felt that he needed to be watch ful, for In his heart he believed the faults to be few. There was grave danger that he might forget again that he was the offender, and take the same attitude of injured dignity that had caused Lottie Maynard to go hur rying back to the city with the dec laration that when he came to his senses she might be ready to talk to him again. : , There was an accent on the "might" that left the matter In doubt, and Julian felt that It behooved him to keep vividly In mind what Lottie de olared to be his offenses. Mentally Julian recited the cate chism of his offenses, punctuating his self-examination with appropriate re marks concerning a train that was two hours late. He was still occupied with this task when a distant whistle sounded, and the watting passengers hurried from the station to the plat form. There was some grumbling when it was seen that this was only a slow train from the south instead of the desired south-bound, but they lined up along the platform to watch the arrival of the few passengers who were making a change. Then they hurried back to the warmth of the waiting room. Only one girl remained behind to walk briskly up and down the plat form. With a glad cry of surprise Julian hurried toward her. . " "What are you doing here, Lottie?" he asked, as he took her hand In his. "Where are you going?" she coun tered. "I was rufinlng down to town to see you," he explained. "And to think of finding you here, on your way to Lindon." '.'.'.'- "I .was not going to Lindon," de clared the girl. "I was going on. but somehow I stepped off the train through habit, and the train went on without me." "I was hoping that you were com ing back to me," he said tenderly, but Lottie tossed her head. "I told you that when you were ready to admit that you were at fault, that you might write, and that then perhaps I would come. You dbn'l sup pose that I would change my mind, do your "No such luck," he admitted dis mally. "That was why I was coming to you." "To apologize?" she demanded, and Julian nodded his head. A gleam of triumph flashed. Into Lottie's eyes, but she was not to be won so easily.' She had very pro nounced ideas on the proper way of handling the man she purposed to marry, and now that he was penitent, he was In no hurry to make the weet surrender that Julian sought. "I suppose you are saying that just because you want to make up," she declared Judicially. "I don't know that It should count." "You said that when I would admit that I was rn the wrong you would be my friend again," reminded Julian. "But what's the use of admitting that you are wrong, when you don't mean It?" argued Lottie. "You'll say the same things again the first time that you want to be nasty." "Don't you believe It," advised Julian with convincing emphasis, 'if you would only know how utterly miserable I have been since you went back to town! That was why I de cided to come, instead of writing." "And almost missed me," supplied Lottie. "I think, Julian, that I'H make my visit, and in the meantime think about coming to Lindon on the way back." Julian's face darkened. "I wish you'd make up now," he pleaded. "The fact that we met each other here at the Junction proves that it was meant by fate that we should be friends again." For a moment the girl hesitated. She bad meant to keep Julian on the anxious seat for a few weeks, but now that he was coming, penitent and con quered, she felt that perhaps It would be well to surrender' before he should again change bis mind. The patent leather tip of her shoe dug Into the now. "It does seem a little like the work ing of fate," she admitted. "Here I go out of town to visit In Peltonvllle and you are on your way to town to see me. Tou are waiting at the Junction for a train that Is late and I am left behind by my train." "Then accept the omen and say that yea will make up," he urged. "We can go back to town and pick out the ring and then we'll come back to Lin don and tell the folks." For another tense moment Lottie hesitated, then she nodded and Julian gave a shout of Joy. "There's the whistle of our train," he cried. "I'll hurry In and get yon a ticket back to town." "I'm glad that he didn't know that I was on my way to give In," said Lottie halt aloud. "It will be hard enough, anyway, to manage him wlta ut letting him know that" Pleasant Valley Ten mlle Dorthweat of Liberal. 1 After a short absence we are on deck again.
