She turns grass into green-backs, grain into gold, and from the sand and gravel she coins silver. There is nothing else on the place to compare with her. The cat tle and horses are her heavy custom ers, and to get their value we must part with them, but not so with the hen.

GIRL WITHOUT A CHANCE At Orpheam, Matinee and Night January 15th We have often stopped and wonder ed why it was that so many of our children never seemed to have a chance. Are our children always to blame? Is it not every father's and mother's sacred duty to see that their child has all the advantages that will benefit them as they grow older in years? But think how many of tho parents are themselves to blame for the defects mentally and morally of their children. When a young girl fails to find any encouragement or consolation under the paternal roof, naturally she will seek it elsewhere and when she finds it, no matter from Scene from "The Girl Without A Chance.'' what source it comes, she places her self into those arms of consolation without giving a thought to the fu ture and when the parents learn what has happened to their child, then only do they awaken to the sit uation and see where the blame lies that their child was one of those un fortunate girls without a chance. Observing the possibility of this theme, Whitney Collins built around it his play "The Girl Without A Chance" and it has proven so attrac tive that the management of this theatre has taken steps to secure it for an early presentation. KEMPFER-MOTZKA The marriage of Miss Katherine Motzka to Charles L. Kempfer took place Tuesday morning at the resi dence of Father O'Neil on North Main.

The booth was artistically decorated in hearts and pink and white roses. The brides cake which was pink and white was done up in red heart shaped boxes. Mr. and Mrs. Kempfer left on No. 4 the same morning for Minneapolis, Chicago and St. Louis where they will spend their honeymoon. They will be at home to their friends after February 1. Mrs. Kempfer has made her home here for the past year and in that time has made many friends. Mr. Kempfer has been engineer on the G. N. for a number of years. The many friends of both these young people extend heartiest congratula tions.
