Mercer County's population shows a decrease over ten years ago of 801 not a very fine showing according to the census just given out, which puta it at 27,210. Ten years ago it was 2H.021. Twenty years ago it was 27,530. Notwithstanding this reversal, we be lieve all the larger towns in the coun ty have made gains. The falling off then is in the farm population. Small farms are evidently being gobbled up by the bigger ones. The exodus to the citiea and big towns la on the Increase despite the cry, "back to the land." Van Wert County shows a decrease in population, and Auglaize and Darke show but insignificant Increases, yet all the big towns are growing. Allen County Is the only one of our nelgbors to make a big gain, and that will be found to have been contributed solely by Lima. So it is all over the State. Cleveland Is credited with nearly a third of the increase in the population of the State. It's almost startling, but it is true. It can't go on forever. . The bubble will bust some day. And somebody's goin' to get hurt. And then we may have need for some of the socialist doctors we have been giving the horae laugh.

It's that or die. But, doctor or no, I've got to attend to some things myself, so I shall be obliged to take Miss Spencer along.

But as he worked he raged, for the night before he had overhenrd a parental conversation which he could not escape without letting them know he had heard, which would have troubled them terribly. He wished he didn't know that they were cold-bloodedly worrying about his mar rying, though he was but twenty-four, and that they had imagined they could choose a wife for him. They seemed worried lest he be captured by the wiles of "some woman," some girl without money and position, some one not In their own particular social set. He would show them that he would make his own choice, sin cerely hoping the family would Hko It. But, If they didn't, they could go to thunder! Which sentiment wap more forceful than filial.

Sue was the young est and marrii'ige might save her She had hoped to throw the girl in John Junior's way that summer, and here she had to trail all over Europe! She was quite pathetic about it. The young man gat on the veranda that night, after he had dutifully seen hla parents off. He had promised them anything, and was to be made comfortable In the old house by the family servants. He hoped the pater would Improve In health and tem per. Then he went off early to bod, his mind still busy with choosing his own wife. Miss Stone, the new stenographer, was waiting the next morning. He called her to take some dictation In the Inner oflice, and almost uncon sciously, though he was courteous to every one, accorded her the manners he would have used with girls of his own set. She was little and slender, with quantities of plainly arranged, bright brown hair and steady, clear, gray eyes. She should not have been much past twenty, but she had an air of poise and detachment that was quite remarkable. Ills quick eye noted that her exquisitely neat black dress was new and cheap, that her small shoes were cheap, but her handker chief which lay on the desk before her was of very fine linen. She took dictation swiftly and quietly without asking him to repeat, with an alert Intelligence that pleased him. And when, later, she brought him the let ters to sign they were faultless. She could spell and she could bring force ful order out of his rather chaotic and headlong sentences. And neither that first day nor on any other did she seem to regard him personally. She did her work and then went home. It was very simple. Business, always slack In summer, went smoothly enough, but he saw that every detail was brought up to date. Every one was busy enough. The new girl seemed not to mingle with the other girls, but kept to her self. He found that she could not only spell, but that she could exist with out gum, cneap finery, and elaborate coiffures. And she made no at tempts, subtle or otherwise, at flirt ing with her young employer. He was used to being ogled by the girls In his employ. This vas refreshing, but her Indifference piqued him. He had an irritated feeling that she hardly saw him as a man. Her fine, steady eyes never lingered approving ly on his consciously handsome self. And she never lingered, never said more than a conventionally pleasant word at roming or going. She never mentioned her private affairs, and when he said she might go early, she pinned on her quiet street hat, toot her gloves and parasol and went. He wondered where she lived. Finally In July, he asked for her eddress in case he should need her on a holiday, or In an emergency. Continued on eighth page.
