much less. No tragedy I

metropolitan performance.
As for Selwyn, a few people noticed
his presence at the funeral. But even
that episode was forgotten before he
left the city six hours later under an
invitation from Washington which ad
mitted of no delay on the score of pri
vate business or of iersonal perplex
ity, for thw summons was peremptory
and his oliedlcnce so Immediate that a
telegram to Austin comprised and con
cluded the entire ceremony of his leave
taking.
Later he wrote a great many letters
to Eileen Erroll, not one of which he
ever sent. But the formality of his si
lence was no mystery to her. and her
response was silence as profound as
the stillness in her soul. But deep into
her young heart something new had
been born.
In April the armored ships left the
southern drill ground and began to
move northward. A destroyer took
Selwyn across to the great fortress in
side the Virginia capos and left him
there. During his stay there was al
most constant firing. Later he contin
ued northward as far as Washington,
but It was not until June that he tele
graphed Austin:
Government satisfied. Appropriation
certain next session. Am on my way to
New York.
. Austin, in his house, which was now
dismantled for the summer, telephon
ed Nina at Silverside that he had been
detained and might not be able to
grace the festivities which were to
consist of a neighborhood dinner to
the younger set in honor of Mrs. Ger
ald. But he said nothing about Sel
wyn, and Nina did not suspect that
her brother's arrival in New York had
anything to dowith Austin's detention.
As Selwyn came leisurely up the
front steps Austin, awaiting him fe
verishly, hastened to smooth the florid
Jocose mask over hjs features and
walked Into the room, big hand ex
tended, large, bantering voice undis
turbed by the tremor of a welcome
which filled his heart and came near
filling his eyes:
So you've stuck "the poor old gov
ernment at last, have you? Took 'em
all In forts, fleet and the marine cav
alry?"
Sure thing," said Selwyn, laughing
in the crushing grasp of the big fist.
"How are you, Austin? Everybody's
in the country, I suppose," glancing
around at the linen shrouded furnl
ture. "How is Nina? And the kids?
Good business? And Eileen?"
"She's all right," said Austin. "Gad!
She's really a superb specimen this
summer. Where's your luggage? Oh,
is it all here? Enough, I mean, for us
to catch a train for Silverside this
afternoon?"
"Has Nina any room for me?" asked
Selwyn.
"Room! Certainly! I didn't tell her
you were coming, because if you
hadn't the kids would have been hor
ribly disappointed. She and Eileen
are giving a shindy for Gladys that's
Gerald's new acquisition, you know,
So if you don't mind butting into a
baby show we'll run down. It's only
the younger bunch from nitherwood
House and Brookminster. What do
you say, Phil?"
Selwyn said that he would go, hesi
tating before consenting. A curious
feeling of age and grayness had sud
denly come over him, a hint of fatigue,
of consciousness that much of life lay
behind him.
So Austin went to the telephone and
called up his house at Silverside, say
ing that he'd be down that evening
with a guest.
Nina got the message just as she
had arranged her tables, but woman is
born to 6orrow and heiress to all the
unlooked for idiocies of man.
"Dear," she said to Eileen, the tears
of uxorlal vexation drying unshed in
her pretty eyes, "Austin has thought
fit to seize upon this moment to bring
a man down to dinner. . So If you are
dressed would you kindly see that the
tables are rearranged and then tele
phone somebody to fill in two girls.

do for one. Beg her mother to let her

asked. .' '
"He didn't say. Can't you think of a

teriaL I suppose the little imp will

J Eileen laughed. "Oh, Nina, do let
Drina come this once!v It can't hurt
her."
And so it happened that, among the
jolly throng which clustered around
, the little candle lighted tables in the
t dining room at. Silverslde, Drina, In
ecstasy, curly hair Just above the nape
of her slim white neck and cheeks like
pink fire, sat between Boots and a
vacant chair reserved for her tardy
father.

Craig girl, and, as there wore to have
six at a table, at that particular
table sat Boots decorously facing Ei
leen, with the two children on either
hand and two empty chalr9 flanking
Eileen.
At dinner Drina and the younger
Craig maiden also appeared to be bent
upon solf destruction, and Boots' eyes
opened wider and wider in sheer
amazement at the capacity of woman
in embryo for rations sufficient to
maintain a small garrison.
"There'll be a couple of reports,". he
said to himself, with a shudder, "like
Selwyn's chaosite, and then there'll be
no niore Driun - and Daisy. Hello!"
lie broke off, astoulslied. "Well, upon
my word of words! Phil Selwyn, or
I'm a broker!"

"Train was late, as usual," 'observed
Austin. "Philip and I don't mean to
butt into this very grand function
Hello, Gerald! Hello, Gladys! Where's
our obscure corner below the salt,
Nina? Oh, over there!"
Selwyn had already caught sight of
the table destined for him. A deeper
color crept across his bronzed face as
he stepped forward, and his firm hand
closed over the slim hand offered.
For a moment neither spoke. She

away as the child said distinctly: "I'll
kiss you after dinner. It can't be done
here, can it, Eileen?"
Selwyn, beside Eileen, had ventured
on the formalities, his voice unsteady
and not yet his own.
Her loveliness had been a memory,
He had supposed he realized it to him
self, but the superb fresh beauty of
the girl dazed him. There was
strange new radiancy, a living bright
ness, to her that seemed almost unreal
Exquisitely unreal her voice, too, and
the slightly bent bead, crowned with
the splendor of her hair, and the slow
ly raised eyes, two deep blue miracles
tinged with the hues of paradise.
"Are you remaining to smoke?" ask
ed Eileen as Selwyn took her to the
doorway after dinner. "Because if you
are not I'll wait for you
On the lawn out there farther out,
In the starlight," he whispered, his
voice broke, "ray darling"
She bent her bead, passing slowly
before him, turned, looked back, her
answer in her eyes, her Hps, in every
limb, every line and contour of her, as
she stood a moment looking back.
Austin and Boots were talking volu
bly when he returned to the tables now
veiled in a fine haze of aromatic smoke.
Gerald stuck close to him, happy, ex
cited, shy by turns. Others came up on
every side young, frank, confident fel
lows, nice in bearing, of good speech
and manner.
And outside waited their pretty part
ners of the younger set, gossiping in
hall, on stairs and veranda in garru
lous bevies, all filmy silks and acea
and bright eyed expectancy.-

THE EXD.
, KING CORN ON SHOW.
Great National . Exposition Full of
Striking Features.
Besides tiio Auditorium in Omaha,
Whore the second nnuual National
Corn exposition was recently opened,
there are three other immense tempo
rary builuiugs sheltering equally inter
er.ting features, covering nearly, three
square blocks of space.
The exhibits were sent not only from
all parts of the Uuited Slates, but from
di3taut comers of the carih. Among the
many features there are a big model
kitchen section to show the modern
and correct way of cooking; an Indus
trial section, showing the making of
various corn and grain products; a
manufacturers' section, .with imple
ment exhibits from all parts of the
country; a small grain section, exhiblt--
liig oats, barley, wheat,' rye and other
varieties of useful grain aside from
the great King Corn; u moving picture

"Corn 'Show- Mermaid "Ulusiqn," and
last, but not least, the beat roram of

To enumerate the details of thti va
rious entertainments, furiilahtd tha pa
trons of the eLow would be to count
the F.ands of the seashore cr leaves of
the forest. '- r.
At the main entrance,, at Tiftecnth
and Howard streets.. there are several
big a relies with turnstile and a small
army of ofSeials to take care of visit
ors. . The arches ore decorated with
rows of cross sections of corn ears, end
between each circular, section la an
electric . bulb, says the Orja ha World-
Heralds There are nearly a thousand
of these bulbs in place on the arches,
ana hity-iour. . busnels or . corn were
sawed up for the additional decora
lion. As a matter of fact, the whole
show, with nil Its temporary structure
is a veritable blaze, of light, over 5,000
bulbs being used aside from the regu
lar Auditorium and street lighting and
the various siot lights and searchlights
used for feature, purposes.
The Fifteenth street annex or prome
nade incloses the 'Nebraska and Iowa
exhibits Nebraska on the east, Iowa
on the west. ' Here rtre the various in
dustrial and special concession exhibits
of Omaha and Nebraska merchants
and farmers as well. as those of the
Iowans. . At the south end of the prom
enade is a big lunch ."room, elegantly
furnished, nnddlrex tly across or west
from It Is the. "Corn Show Mermaid Il
lusion," one of the most beautiful mys
teries ever presented In, Omaha. .
Passing out through the" west gate,
at the end of the annex. Js the meet
ing hp.H, where the Immense program
arranged . by the nianagement for each
hour of each day of the show will be
gone through. The big temporary au
ditorium lies Just eastv of the Itome
hotel and has an enormous seating ca
pacity. East of the meeting jball is the tem
porary building, just south of the
Omaha Auditorium, which harbors the
"manufacturers' section." ..Therein are
shown all of the most " modern and
marvelous farm implements and equip
ment,, which, even to the layman, must
be of great Interest .. For instance,
there is the newest "corn planter,"
which guarantees to plant three ker
nels to a hill ninety-nine times out of
a hundred or forfeit & handsome sum.
There can be seenV he'w busker, which
shoots the corn Into a wagon and
blows the husks and blades into the
barn as if by human volition, and a big
gang plow! which "gives as much pow
er, with three horses' as is usually ac
complished by four..
The permanent "brick building has
; been secured, by, the management of
the rn show for use In the industrial
section. The second floor is used for
the' laboratory and demonstration work
of the model kitchen, in charge of Miss
Katherlne Besack, one of the most ac
complished young women' In this line
of work in the world. Equipment is
installed for fifty students, who wlM
work under Miss Besack, and there
w rr -1 I r - r . tti.
Mrs. Housekeeper and Mr. Man-Who-Loves-Good-CoOklng
can see the very
latest, most approved work in that
line. There will be cooking by elec
tricity, gas, range and every other
known form of heat, and the flour you
see ground from rough grain in other
parts of the show will there be trans
formed into the daintiest table delica
cies. AH branches of cooking will be
demonstrated and lectures delivered
explaining the methods, not only by
Miss Besack, but by other well known
authorities. For this purpose a lecture
hall is also built on the second floor.
This second floor, in charge of Miss
Besack, is connected with the stage
of the main Auditorium, just north, by
a strong viaduct built for that especial
purpose. The first floor of the build
ing is given over to the moving plctum
theater, where thousands of magnifl
cent films show the visitor the won
ders of the farms of Nebraska and th
charms of Omaha. This first floor
connects with the main floor of the
Auditorium, and passing along this
walk one comes to one of the biggest
features of the entire exposition
This is the famous denatured alco
hol plant Installed by the Uuited States
government for the purpose of show
ing the farmer how', by the u.4e .of
waste products, he may manufacture
alcohol to furnish him ample power
for all machinery and heat he needs
on his farm. It is the first small and
practical plant to be shown in the
west and 13 in charge of Dr. II. E
Sawyer, chief of the bureau of chem
istry in the department of agriculture
In the United States government. Dr.
Wente Is his assistant and Is now In
command at the station. Here you are
shown to your entire satisfaction that
a small amount of unsalable potatoes,
bad corn, useless, coarse turnips and
other waste products of the farm may
by a very simple process, and a cheap
one at that, be transformed Into a
goodly amount of denatured alcohol,
fully capable of giving farmers all
needed power. It is a wonderful dem
onstration and one which has startled
the world as well
Then, ascending to the Auditorium
stage, the main section of the show is
reached at last. Standing in the midst
of a great exhibition of small grain.
which is a veritable exposition of its
own and in the midst of which la go
ing on constantly the milling 'contest
which has caused so much comment
in agricultural circles, one sees, look
ing out over the main floor and balco
ny of the Auditorium,' a myriad.
maze of corn ears, ears, ears every
where, laid la symmetrical rows reach
ing from floor to roof in incalculable
thousands. : If. these ears were.. laid
side by side, not end to end, they
would make a line of solid corn over
four miles long, representing the very
flower of corn breeding in the world
It Is a .marvelous spectacle,
But on the stage itself is presented
a feature of most unusual Interest.
Graded wheat is ground before your
eyes; and It Is determined by actual
baking done on the spot - which flour
proves best for light bread, which best
for crackers end which best for pastry,
Thus the various merits, as appealing
to the layman's sensitive stomach, are
determined and the most perfect cook
ing flour is obtained and the prizes
thus awarded. Besides this, there are
the many other small grains being
demonstrated in like manner.
In the balcony of the Auditorium
proper the visitor finds himself in the
mids of a wilderness of corn. All
the ears are laid neatly side by side,
and cards show from where they are
exhibited. Each section of the bal
cony is the presentation of one state,
and each section Is divided into coun
ties, so that by a glance at the signs
and placards one may Instantly see
the name, residence, county and state
of the exhibitor. Among the states
exhibiting there are Nebraska, Kan-j
sas, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, South
Dakota, North Dakota, Colorado, Okla
homa, Missouri Wisconsin, Indiana,
Ohio, Texas and Connecticut. Besides
these are many Independent exhibits,
such as the one from Mexico, sent by
the Mexican government, and one
from Buenos Aires, Argentine Repub
lic, South America. V
And at the west end of the balcony,
in plain sight from almost any spot
on the main, floor, is the section given
over to prize and trophy winning ex
hibits. The winning ears can be seen
properly labeled, with the badges de
noting the honors they have achieved.
From each side of the balcony power
ful spot lights Will play upon these
haughty aristocrats, and one may read
ily compare, therefore, the winning
ears with their less fortunate brethren
and note, through lectures by able
corn breeders, the points which gave
the prize winning excellence.
On the main floor are the exhibits of
the universities and colleges which
have liberally contributed to the sue
cess of the exposition. In the center
Rplendld exhibit booths have been built
by the Union Faeiflc railroad, two
seed companies and several other large
institutions.
One of the most beautiful sights of'
the exposition Is the decoration of the
main floor of the Auditorium proper.
Each university and school represented
has furnished veritable bales of bunt
ing and pennants, which are draped
and hung over and about the various
school sections and which extend from
the roof in lovely festoons. These,
with the magnificent lighting Installed
for the occasion, have made the Audi
torium a fairy bower of beauty in
which the yellow corn and golden
grain sit like pictures In their frames.
