Socks and Hosiery A curious exchange, evidently edited by a bachelor, asks why women's stockings are so long and men's socks so short. Well, you see, a man's drawers como down a long way Into his socks, while a woman's, er, —the businesses you see in the windows of the dry goods stores, with baby ribbon run through the top and a lot of lace and ruffles around the bottom—sort of bifurcated, hemstitched, tucked and cut bias dulaperdingus, as it were— (lee!

But as we were saying, the, er, garment, is calculated to cover as much territory as a peace conference, but it don’t come down very Jar, so, as the ladies get along now with an umbrella cover for a skirt, to save cloth and expense, pre sumably, if the stockings were socks. you see, their 1 limbs would be nude, and the calves would catch cold iii these July breezes—Ah, shut up!

LYTTLE Now that tho groat World War is over and the task of reconstruction [ lies before the American people, one of the flrstdutlea of thepubllf should be that of suppressing the foreign ; press in this country. Recent events have shown that the spirit of Bolshe- j visui which predominates in oar larger cities is due to the fact, that the uneducated Russian, Italian, or other foreigner is allowed to main tain his original anarchial ideas thru reading papers printed In his own language and carryiug no spirit of Americanism. Many of these pre sent day Bolsheviks have become naturalised citizens aud as yet they have never read au American paper. Why should they, when they may obtain the current news printed in their native tongue and accompanied by editorials containing their foreign ideas of government? Is It not proof enough to say. that prior to the entrance of the United States Into the war, the antagonistic element of Prussianism was to be found In the largo cities rather than iu the smaller towns and villages. Why? Because in the cities there were thousands of Germans who read only the German press and in no way had they imbibed any spirit of Am ericanism during their domicile In this country. The foreign press must be stamped out If this is ever going to be a thoroughly peaceful demo cratic nation. It is Vthe duty of every American to see that the spirit of Americanism shall in future years be free of the undermining influence of such a factor. Freeman Fairfield came in from Grand Junction last week to spend the Fourth at home. Hartsel Hlner of upper White, spread his autograph on the Meeker register, Monday.

M Sea Francises His Bright Idea B y GEORGE ELMER COBB (Oasrrisftt.

Allen, you are a free man." “After three years being shut out from the world 1 Still, I don’t com plain, warden. I was an Idle, thrift less fellow, had no business mixing In with a destructive crowd, and I have the penitentiary to thank for teaching me a trade that will always earn me a decent living. I understand that a relative has left me a little piece of property, so I can recommence life with experience, capital and a clear record." The blrda teemed chiming a welcom ing chorus aa Sidney Allen left the grim pent honae where he had passed thiee precious years of his young life under an error of the law. The sun shine appeared to him at Its bright est, he drew in great draughts of the sweet, clear air. Inspiriting as wine. His second year In confinement he had been notified that he had become oue of several helm through the death of a relative. It was Imparted to him that he had Inherited a store property In Layton, a thriving country town. It was twenty miles from the prison to Layton and Allen had money to go there by rail, but the delight of free dom kept him tramping the distance after he had started. It was late afternoon when, tired and dust covered, he learned that Lay ton waa only three miles ahead down a straight country road. Allen rested for one-lialf an hour, even dosed, and set oat upon his way refreshed to pause again, this time amid excitement and Interest, at the edge of the lit tle town. Near a rickety old house with a well-kept vegetable garden sur rounding It waa a five-acre pasture fenced In, and here waa presented the amazing spectacle of four white-haired ladles, spry and nimble, chasing a young horse and striving to keep him from escaping through a break at one end of the enclosure. They laughed like merTy romping girls, they scolded the wayward pony, who seemed full of mischief. Allen Joined In the pur suit. but Just aa he caught the horse by the mane hta foot struck a rock and he was disabled. One of the ladlee led the horse toward the house. The three others, discerning Allen's plight, assisted him, limping, from the spot. . They were grateful for hla co-operation, solicitous over his mishap. They got him into the house, his Injury revealing a bruised end swollen ankle. Like trained nurses they bathed and bandaged the Injured member and soon he was com fortably disposed In an arm chair. From the window he saw the horse hitched to a smalt wagon. In which heaping boskets of doughnuts and new ly baked loaves of bread were carried. “You won’t be able to move about much untfl tomorrow,“ said one of the old ladles. “I suppose you wonder at all the cookery you see around here. Well, we were all Inmates of an old ladles' home that burned down, and clubbed together to make a living. Wc- supply some families with bread, cakes and the like, twice a week and get along very nicely. Indeed. “That la Nellie Clare, a girl we adopted four years ago," spoke one of the others. “You see, two of us have small war pensions and we are now educating her at a seminary. This explanation referred to the pic ture on '.he wall of a beautiful young girl of about eighteen. Allen had cer tainly come across a strange combina tion. The quartette made It a pleasant evening tor him and he went on hla way the next day feeling sure that glowing picture of home comfort would not soon fade from hla mind. Allen found the property left to him to comprise a large roomy one-story atore building In the best business quarter of the town. He resolved to utilize It In a business way. What he considered to he a bright Idea had appealed to him. While In the peni tentiary he had served an apprentice ship lo the plastic art, that la, model ing center pieces. Images and even statuary heads. He had the old store room cleared up, purchased material and tools and set at work on his grand plan. This Involved a long chat with the four old ladles, who were Inimitable cooks. There was no kind of .pastry they could not handle artistically. Allen made perfect plaster of parts Imitations of bread, cakes, pies, pud dings. He tinted them so artistically that they would deceive an expert baker. These facsimiles he placed In the show window, affixing the prices of the genuine articles. Within the month the Art Bake Shop was doing a thriving business, hla four co-partners were filled with Joy over being Interested In a profitable, grow ing business, and one day sweet Nel lie Clara, thalr beloved adopted, came home. She was so much more win ning and lovely than her picture, and Allen had so endeared himself to the antiquated four, that naturally they drifted Into mutual love. The merry, happy baking corps, the manly. Indus trious Allan, the smiling, winning clerk, attracted the Interest and good will of the whole community In their Uttle palace of a store, and the bar ntonlous sextette drifted Into an Ideal existence that was the admiration and pride of a loyal cUaatela. A Fateful Ordeal By Otillia Frances Pleiffer i OeenKbt. MIS. by Wwtsn Mewwapw IWw) **1 feel that I shall never come beck, Wade, and It’s the thought of tho lit tle one that worries me.” "Throw the fret and anxiety com pletely off your mind, Darlow. Yon are going to get well and strong up In the mountains." "But If I should not?” "Faithfully I shall carry out yonr plans concerning little Juanita. Thus had Paul Darlow bound the man be regarded as his dearest friend to a aecret compact and never waa weak, though well-meaning Morton Wade more loyally resolved. It was In a city down the Chilean coast that Darlow, broken down In spirits and health, was about to start for an upland district where his phy sician said there was a chance of re building his shattered system. As the disheartened man looked bark over live years and Its fateful awards the future looked Indeed bleak and un promising. His story was a romance, its pres ent semblance fairly tragical. He had left his aged mother In a quiet little Michigan town to try his fortune In South America. He was all but pledged, when he returned, to wed his boyhood sweetheart, Clarissa Burn ham. A year after his departure Clar issa wrote him that his mother was dead. Clarissa bad nursed her pa tiently, lovingly through two months’ Illness. Darlow sent a pathetic reply full of grateful expressions, but not a word of love for the famished, long ing soul so true to him. He had not forgotten her, but he had become dazzled by a new flame. A bright, flashing beauty of his new en vironment, Inez Agnllar, had cap tivated his senses and he had mar ried her. When the intensity of the begnllement had yorn away and he found himself bound to a fretful, ca pricious Invalid, ha wrote to Clarissa the truth, although hla sense of treach ery shamed him. Inez faded away, leaving their little child, Juanita, to hla care. His own health broke down and now he had placed over $2,000 In the hands of Morton Wade, who. In case Darlow died, waa to send it and little Juanita to Clarlasa Burnham. Within a month there came word to Wade that Darlow had perished In crossing dangerous rapids In the In terior. The news stunned Wade. He had been disloyal to his trust. He had employed the $2,000 In a specula tion, feeling certain of a large profit Wade lost hla Investment, and when the call came to send Juanita to Clarissa Burnham, he managed to raise barely sufficient to take her to her new guardian. Ha wrote Miss Burnham the truthful, penitent story of hla delinquency; conscience-stricken, reverted to strong drink to drown his remorse, and one night waa killed in a gambling den. False aa Paul Darlow had been to her, she cherished the letter he had written to her immediately after the death of his wife. In that missive he declared that all along he had loved Clarissa only. When the little child arrived, pa tiently, lovingly Clarissa took upon herself a new burden. The radiant dreams of her youth had been blighted, hut hers was one of those natures In capable of forgetfulness of a flrat-love Ideal. Clarissa was dependent upon her own efforts for her livelihood, and the added care and expense of little Juan tta strained her earning capacity to the limit. She finally lost a position she had held for several years, on ac count of removal. Then she noticed an advertisement from a widower, Hector Blake, who offerd to pay lib erally for the care of his two mother less children. Clarissa now devoted all her time to care for the three children. Mr. Blake, who was an Invalid, called once a week and the solicitude of Clarissa for the welfare of his children won his gratitude. With the coming of win ter he vii preparing to remove South and try to regain hla broken health. One day be came to Clarissa, seri ous faced and earnest. Plainly he told her that he was anxious to make her his wife. He pleaded with her to become a mother to his little ones. They would go South, he would make over to her their home, and she could take Juanita with them. For the aake of the child Clarissa consented. One hour after she had accepted Hector Blake there was a summons at the door, and there in flesh and blood stood Paul Darlow. He had survived extraordinary hardships and had reached his native land a rich roan. He poured out his soul to the agi tated woman, who had been so true to him. Then Clarissa told him of her promise to Blake. Both were In tears, she stricken over the fact that she could not break that pledge. There was an Interruption as a new parting seemed Inevitable. Hector Blake had heard all and stood within the room. "Oh I crown the years of wretched ness with the happiness at last with in your reachthis man of noble Im pulse said. "It was not love, as you well know, Miss Burnham, that Im pelled me to ask you to become my wife—It was a selfish thought of my little ones and the desire to make your future assured. But now—” The inference was plain, and those two stood rennlted, she forgetting all the past; he bringing to her a love that had become che stronger because of his life mistake. B. C.
