opinions put into the month of some
one else; so Mr. Grey, looking smiling
ly at his son, remarked: "Vivian, my
dear, can you tell me in what work of
Bolingbroke I can find the eloquent
passage you have Just quoted?" "Ask
Mr. Hargrave, sir," replied the son,
with perfect coolness; then turning to
Mr. Hargrave he said: "You know

found political student in the house,

any other with the works of Boling-
Mr. Hargrave knew no such thing,
but he was a weak man, and, seduced
by the compliment, he was afraid to
prove himself unworthy of It by con-

Vivian carried this same self-assur-
ance into politics and won many
triumphs by tactics of the kind. He

DISRAELI'S story of Vivian
Grey, like others of his novels,
deals largely with politics, and
contains character portraits of well-
known persons of the period.
When Vivian Grey reached the age
of five years it was discovered that the
treatment of a doting mamma and
overattentive nurses had spoiled the
child, and it was decided that he had
better be sent away to school; when
however, the subject was under dis
v cussion, there was a strenuous protest
from Vivian against curls and going to
"I won't have my hair curl,
mamma; the boys will laugh at me,'
ba\«led the spoiled youngster, "Charles
Appleyard told me so; his hair curled
nnd the boys called him girl. Papa
give me seme more claret; I won't go
But in spite of these protests he was
sent to school, where he stayed some
four years, when it was decided that
he should remain at home for a time
and do his studying there; but he was
later sent off again, this time to the
school of Mr. Dallas at Burnsley vicar-
The rumor of the arrival of "a new
fellow" circulated rapidly through the
inmates of the vicarage, and the fifty
young rascals were preparing to quiz
the newcomer when the schoolroom
door opened and Mr. Dallas, accom-
panied by Vivian Grey, entered.
"A dandy, by Jove!" whispered one.
"What a knowing set out," squeaked
a second; "Mummy sick," growled a
third; this last exclamation was, how-
ever, a scandalous libel, for certainly
no being ever stood in a pedagogue's
presence with more perfect sang-froid,
and with a bolder front, than did, at
this moment, Vivian Grey.
The young savages at Burnsley vic-
arage had caught a Tartar; in a very
few days Vivian was decidedly the
most popular fellow In the school; "he
was so dashing! so devilish good-tem-
pered, so completely up to every-
Vivian developed talents of a lit-
erary nature which Inspired great ad-
miration among his fellow pupils, and
also in the mind of Mr. Dallas.
But there are other attributes which
will win the admiration of a school of
real boys; and this proved to be the
case at Burnsley vicarage, when, as
so often happens, some of the boys,
Jealous of Vivian's popularity, found,
as they thought, an opportunity to
triumph over him. There was trouble
between the followers of Vivian and
those of Mallet, the head usher; one
of the latter made an insulting remark
to Vivian which he promptly resented
and the battle was on, and Vivian
Grey showed that he could fight as
well as write.
Vivian's chief characteristic was a
burning ambition; with this he had a
great amount of courage and self-as-
surance, nnd besides these attributes,
tact combined with a pleasing per-
sonal presence and manners.
At a dinner in his father's home,
when Vivian was still a very young
man, he made the acquaintance of the
marquess of Carabas. He came to
the rescue of the marquess and his
opinions in an after-dinner discussion,
during which he quoted a whole pas-
sage from Bolinghroke in support of
the marquess; this was challenged by
Vivian's father, who knew his son's
habit of quoting the opinions of oth-
ers, which were more often his own
lltical chess board, among which was
a Mr. Frederick Cleveland, who at-
tracted his attention, and when the
marquess' party was looking for a
leader, Vivian suggested the name of
Mr. Cleveland. Now It happened that
these two, the marquess and Cleve-
land, had been at odds, which Vivian
did not at first realize; when he was
alone he said to himself: "What have
While the crop was reported good
in a few sections, cotton generally

erate to heavy showers," had a bad
effect on the crop.

know, for I do not. This Cleveland Is,
I suppose, but a man; I saw the feeble
fools were wavering, nnd to save all,
made a leap in the dark. Well, is my
skull cracked? We shall see."
Again was Vivian's assurance to the
fore; he was certainly "all things to
all men." He had the power with his
silver tongue, of conciliating1 many
persons, but not so Mr. Cleveland.
The first great trouble came to
Vivian when, after many attempts at
diplomacy and tile political game, he
estranged both the marquess and Mr
Cleveland; the latter while under the
influence of wine, met Vivian at theli
club and in a fit of anger struck him
and a duel was the result. Vivian fired
into the air, hoping that the affair
would end safely, bqt Cleveland Inist-
ed upon another shcr; Vivian shot at
random, but his bullet pierced Cleve.
A great remorse seized Vivian and
for many weeks he was ill with fever
at his father's home, under the loving
care of his mother. "But the human
mind can master many sorrows," and
after a desperate relapse and anothei
miraculous rally, Vivian Grey arose
from his bed. He left England and
traveled in Germany, visiting, among
other places, Frankfort during the
time of the fair.

Frequent showers slightly held up

tions of the southwest, but generally

Enid, Okla.—Concealed in a tin can
in the crotch of a tree, more than
*1,800 loot taken from the Waukomis
National Bank at Waukomis, ten miles
south of here, by two bandits recent-

from here, within 24 hours, consisting
of George Bellairs and George Davis,
deputy sheriffs, Chalmers B. Wilson,
county attorney and Dr. J. W. Blake.
The place where the money was
found was seven miles southeast of
Waukomis, and a quarter of a mile
from where the two alleged bandits,
Ralph Foster and E. B. Ratz were
captured by the two deputy sheriffs,
after Foster had been shot in the leg.
The two alleged bandits were
caught in a corn field where they had
been trapped by the two deputy sher-
iffs, Belair and Davis. Foster was
shot when he attempted to run. The

Open Hospital Work Bids
Bids for the erection of an admin-
istration building at University hos-
pital was opened Thursday by the
soldier relief commission in the office
of J. T. Randolph chief clerk of the
commission, in the capitol.
H. B. Fell, state comander of the
American Legion, Horace H. Hagan,
former state commander, and Grant
Victor compose the commission.
The last legislature appropriated
$97,500 for the use of the commission
in making addition to the University
hospital which would enable the hos- \
pital to care for 100 more former sol-
diers than it now cares for. It was
decided that the best method of ac-
complishing this purpose was to erect
an administration building east of
the present hospital building and re- j
move the administrative oftlws and j
convert the second floor of the hospi- j
tal to the use of the former soldiers.
