whoever was organizing the event
should take it for granted that he would
; make no charge for its use and would
co-operate in everv way possible.
LITTLE PATRI 0TEAR NS
STAMPS SELLING FLOWERS
This morning a woman telephoned to
the Chamber of Commerce that she had
learned a luncheon was to be hrjd at
the Chamber this noon and wouldn't
the hamher officials be willing to buy
aome bunches of sweet peas from her
little boy who was soon to start dowu
town on his morning round of selling
beauty and fragrance. She added that
the little flower seller was willing to
take his pay in thrift stamps. When
the lad showed up at the Chamber his
stock was taken over and it was the
wares of this patriot which were used
to decorate the tables for the luncheon
tendered Captain Fallon of the British
and Australian armies.

NO PRICE FIXED AT
The attempt to fix prices for thresh
ing wheat and oats in Oklahoma cotin
ty proved of no avail yesterday when
the committees of threshers ana farm-
ers which met at the Chamber of Com
merce could come to no agreement.
After deliberation the threshers re-
turned an estimate of JO cents a bushel
for machine crew wheat and 10 rents
for farm crew wheat which was coiv
sidered too high by the farmers. C. H.
Russell county food administrator
stated after the meeting that the farm-
ers would have to get the wheat
threshed at the threshers' prices or the
toon administration would take it over.

EIGHT HOUSES BRING
Eight households in the .100 block of
West I'ark place and West Tenth street

tries they got only $9. .At .117 West
Tenth street they chloroformed a dog.
Knitting for the soldiers and sailors

What la it That Lillian Read! la Oraca
I WOULD like to ." I whispered
looking up with horror-blinded eyes
.. i ;n..
I know dear" she interrupted reas
suringly; "you know I'm not exactly a
stranger to this sort of thing myself."
The simple words calmed me for they
brought to my memory as with a flash
light the long gruelling nightmare of
Lillians life with Harry Underwood
My suffering cruel as it seemed had
been nothing compared to the long-
drawn-cut burden which had been hers
I am ashamed Lillian I whispered
looking un into her iteady eyes to
bear things so ungraciously when 1
have our example before me.
"Never mind my example" she said
practically. "Finish that letter as soon
as you can."
"There isn't much more of it" I re-
turned taking up the letter again and
preparing to follow her advice.
"Of course" the dashing rhirography
ran on" "prim little Madgie never
could resist opening an envelope that
had my fist on the outside (if it. Of
course she's the original Ceasar's wile
and all the rest of that dope but it's our
of my principles never to lead my fel
low-sisters into temptation so I have
just had a kid I know write your ad-
dress. "Well old top I wonder if you know
how your girl had missed you. Just
think I haven't seen you for almost a
week. I do hope that mysterious itunt
of yours will be over soon for I'm get-
ting mighty lonesome. I don't like plav-
ing around by myself one bit and al-
though I have no business flattering
you for the Lord knows you're con-
ceiled enough already yet when I try
to talk to any of the other mutts that
try to wear out our front steps I find
I've got to slip it to you old boy. l her
aren't any of the rest of them that come
within a thousand miles of you.
"When are we going to have another
lamhoree? I am fairly hungry lor
dinner of vour ordering. You roally
ought to do that for a living. Dicky
bird you do it so well. I am at the
same old place and for the next three
or four days I'll slay close to the tele-
hone from 3 to 4 every afternoon.
With all the love there is in the
world and then some yours till you
know what freezes over GRACE."
I did not crumple this letter angrily
as I had my husband's. My freniied
passion had passed and it seemed be-
neath my womanly dignity to treat the
loathsome thing I held in my hand with
anything but calm contempt. So as I
finished reading it. I folded it rarefully
two or three times and laid it on the
table near me.
Lillian put out her hand and took it.
"I want to read this thing again" she
said "1 did't have a chance to get
the tightislant on it I believe before."
I watched her curiously as she pur-
sued the letter. She was evidently
making a most careful study of it for
she read it. several portions of it and a
number of times stopped and seemed
lost in thought nl some passage. Once

Don't You Swf
"There's something annul this 1 don't
understand Madge. Of course I'll ad-
mil it looks mighty bid for Dicky on
the face of it hut I can't help fancying
there's some explanation for it some-
where." "1 am afraid I don't share your opti-
mism" 1 reiihed a bit stillly.
Into her eyes flashed a look in which
I read infinite pity for me hut there
was mingled with It something else
something which brought the shamed
blood to my cheeks. She lowered her
eyes to the page before her an instant
later but the memory of that glance
remained. It convifted me somehow of
a lack of loyalty to my husband.
For a moment I felt fiercely resent-
ful and all unworthily there flared up
in me the old senseless jealousy of Lil-
lian which had been mine in the first
years of my marriage
"Why is she ao loyal to Dicky?" I
asked myself fiercely.
The next moment my spirit was
bowed in humiliation at my mental
treachery to the woman who hail been
such a wonderful friend to us both. I
felt eager to have her finish the letter
that I might set myself right with her.
Of course. I could never ronfess the
mad moment that had been mine but 1
could pretend if I did not really frel
a hope that Hick's responsibility for
Grace Draper's letter was less than 1
As she reached the last page I saw
her start ami a look of relief flashed
into her eyes.
"Well may I be forgiven for a gib-
bering idiotl" she ejaculated. "To
think that I didn't tee through that
clever shttadevil before."
I looked up at Lillian In bewilder-
ment. She had jumped to her feet and
was pacing the floor excitedly.
"Don't you see it V she demanded.
