ROBBERS GET BIG HAUL AT EAIRVIEW Load Truck with $3,000 Worth of Merchandise from Ford &Mc Calls Store and Start West. Fairview, August 22. Robbers car ried off $3,000 worth of merchandise from the store of Ford & McCalls, of this place last night. They loaded the goods into t truck which they backed up to the back of the store and started west. Up to this time no clue has been obtained. The robbery was not discovered until morning. A large truck was seen going west from town at 3 o'clock this morning and a short distance out a small piece of goods was found which had probably fallen from the truck, which, no doubt, was used to onvey the booty. The merchants report that between $800 and $1000 worth of silk was taken, eighteen or nineteen pairs of women's shoes, which would cost $7 or $8, nineteen $35 men's suits, two or three dozen men's odd pants, and all of the silk shirts in the store. The robbers went into the ware room at the rear of the building and cut through the back door into the store room. Fairview was the scene of another bold robbery a few years ago when the bank here- was entered by masked men, who held up the bank force and took all the money in sight. THE RE-CREATION OF BRIAN KENT Harold Bell Wright's new book, "The Re-Creation of Brian Kent,", is now on sale. Anticipating an enor mous sale of this book of- America's most popular writer, the publishers have printed forty carloads of the first edition. This book is the best the author ihas written since, "The Shepherd of the Hills," in clean and wholesome ex pression. It is a'beautif ul story of the return of a young man from desperate despair to a wholesome and usei'ul happy life. A love story in connec tion makes the story delightful. Auntie Sue, "on old-maid school teacher," is one of Mr. Wright's most successful character creations. Hi;; heroine, Betty Jo, will be loved by all who read the book for her common sense, which is so uncommon. Mr. Wright brings out in this book the charm of the Ozarks, with its soft haze over wooded hills, crystal sti-eams and beautiful sunsets. The book holds ?the attention from the beginning, its dramatic action be ing thrilling and intense, its philo sophy rich and its descriptions charm ing, and most fully appreciated by the dwellers in the Ozarks.

Washington, Aug. 22. In a de termined effort to report the peace treaty before the end of next week, the senate foreign relations com mittee suddenly interrupted its public hearings today and arranged to get to work tomorrow on proposed amend ments and reservations. Although one witness will be heard Monday, members thought that might be the last hearing before the treaty was reported. Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, the democratic leader, declared his belief that the report would be laid before the senate during the comming week. Republican members agreed with his prediction, but Chairman Lodge declined to say whe he thougnf, the committee would act. Late today plans to expedite the consideration of amendments were discussed at a conference of republi can members of the committee. It is likely that among the first amend ments voted on will be one to strike out or modify the article giving Japan control in Shantung province, China.
