Shelby starts a hunt for eligible husbands and the minister goes to confer with the girl. CHAPTER III. She agrees to pick a husband from a score of men lined up in her home. To his consternation, she selects Shelby, who had gone along merely as a spectator. He declines the honor. Indignant, the girl dismisses the assemblage. Later, Shelby goes back to make an explanation. She receives him good haturedly. Bhe looked from Win to the row of breathless men facing her, impatiently, her bosom rising and falling tumultously. "And I've got to choose which one Td rather marry?" "Well, yes, that is the Idea crudely expressed.

He'd like to tell her so. Perhaps he would; there would be reaction after awhile, when those fellows were all gone. Her burst of anger would die away and she would shed tears of mortification. It would be a nice thing then if he could go back there all alone and comfort her; explain how It happened and show her how impossible it was for him to marry. He could see the men plainly enough, outlined In the light as they descended the steps one by one and then faded away in .the darkness. They were a disconsolate, discomfited bunch, 'with downcast faces and silent lips. The preacher and McCarthy came last, the former still talking, his voice Imploring, but evidently to no purpose, for something behind kept impelling him forward and even while he clung to the step for one final effort the door slammed in his face and Shelby heard the sharp snap of a lock. "Well, I'll" be d d!" ejaculated Mac, his temper utterly giving way. "If she ain't a wildcat! Lord, but Td sure pity the feller who did marry her. Come on, old buck, there is no use stayin' here.

Through the wjndow on that siue an unoDsirucyju umze ui. ugui poured forth, but even as he stood staring at it the girl appeared fully revealed in the glare and drew down the curtain. He saw her clearly, like a picture in a frame, one round arm uplifted to grasp the shade, ne drew a quick breath, almost of astonishment, conscious of the rapid beating of his heart. By heaven, she was actually pretty ! He had never thought ihat before; but then, in that ruddy light, the strange impression took possession as something entirely new. And it served to strengthen his purpose. He would not play the part of a coward; lie would go In and explain; he would make her understand exactly how matters were with him and why he acted as he had. Yet this was accomplished hesitatingly and in doubt. He was at the door twice before he found sufllclcnt courage to knock lightly. There was no response and he used his knuckles a trifle louder, intensely conscious of a desire to turn and run away. JBut there was no opportunity. The latch clicked sharply and the light streamed directly into his face, fairly blinding . He took the outstretched hand, conscious of the warm pressure even as he fumbled at the latch of the door.

He felt a vacue susniclon that he had acted foolishly and that the girl was amused at his awkward embarrass- ment. The interview had proven different from what he had anticipated; the tears he. had come to wipe away were conspicuous by, their absence, and Instead of bringing comfort and courage to an extremely mortified young lady, he had found her filled with merriment over the affair and quite indifferent as to Its outcome. 9 She was different from anything he had previously conceived.

Efforts to reduce pro- ter business continues, but it is still duction costs through adjustments of wages and working hours meet with resistance in some quarters, and troubles at certain points have further restricted the public consuming power. Results of retail distribution disclose the Influence of economy and discrimination in purchasing and the effect of variable weather, while demands in differnt primary channels an unmistakable undercurrent of hesitation and caution. The gains which appear, however, are of a wholesome character if moderate, and the improved position of the steel industry Is especially encouraging. At prices much below the previous high levels, some buyers who had deferred commitments as far as possible during the period of deflation are now more d!spoed to operate, and the trend is steadily in the directfon of Increased outputs at some manufacturing establishments.

At the same time, the government is not pledged to carry out the recommendations entirely. The cabinet plans to examine the report, taking it as a guide for the reductions which eventually will be decided on. "In recent years the national expenditure on education has far exceeded what the country at present run afford." The report also recommends the abolition of employment exchanges and the labor ministry, the reduction of the expenditures of the health department and the scrapping of the big housing schemes undertaken after the armistice. If the army and navy cuts go through, 50,000 men will have to be dropped from the army rolls and 35,000 from the navy. -- -- NEM PRICES ON : ..

President Harding submitted the seven treaties of the arms conference to the senate and asked "prompt approval" of them. With the treaties he submitted the report of the American delegation and the minutes of Doth the plenary sessions and the committee meetings of the conference. The President asserted there is in the treaties "no entanglement, alliance, or involvement which requires the United States to surrender any worth while tradition." "Surrender No Tradition." "I am not unmindful," he said, "nor was the conference unmindful, of the sentiment in this chamber against old world entanglements. "But I can bring every assurance that nothing in these treaties commits the United States, or any other power to any kind of an alliance, entanglement, or involvement. It does, not require us to surrender a worth while tradition." Treaties Submitted. The treaties the President submitted were: d he Pacific treaty," e alwhich replaces the liance.

Facing the opposition of all agricultural, industrial and financial lobbies in Washington, leading members of the Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee are prepared to drop the eight resource's proposed to obtain money for a World War veterans' bonus. After a joint conference members of the two committees will sound out Andrew W. Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury, on a proposal to issue Government bonds redeemable at any time, but limited to five years' on which the interest would not be more than 4?4 per cenr to obtain the funds. This proposal was presented to Harding at the White House, it was learned, by Chairman Joseph W. Fordney, of Michigan, of the Ways and Means Committee; Representative Nicholas Longworth, of Cincinnati ; Senator Porter J. McCum-ber- , of North Dakota, Chairman of the Finance Committee and Senator Reed Smoot, of Utah. From one source it was learned that the President is inclined to favor this alternative and that he also will go over the proposal with Secretary Mellon. These four men agree that the bonds can be marketed, but Mr. Mellon has held that a large issue of bonds sold or guaranteed by this Government would upset the rehabilitation of industry. This Is the most drastic about-fac-e that bonus proponents have made since serious consideration of means of revenue was begun a month ago. It means that the tides of protest which followed every announcement of a tentative plan has inundated Congress, and that if the pressure is continued that the whole plan may b President shelved.

"There Is no commitment to armed fprce, no alliance, no written or moral obligation to Join In, or arrive at, any agreement except In accordance with our constitutional methods." The treaty, he said, was a mutual pledge on the part of the four powers to respect their insular possessions. The President described the pact as a "moral warning" to the world that the four great powers of the Pacific would protect the peace of those waters. It is now up to the senate, he said, as the executive branch of the government has done Its work, and much depends on the senate's decision If It Js against "these advanced expression of conscience, then it will be fwtile to try again."

Senator Borah, noted "Irreconcilable," announced within a few minutes after President 'Harding finished tnat Iie would support the naval treaty and, if he found on closer examination that the Pres-- , ident was right in saying none of the others committed the United States to entangling foreign alliances, he "would favor them all." The senate's concern for freedom from entanglements, the President said, was never once forgotten by the American delegation. He reminded the senate that It had been consulted even before the conference met, by the appointment of two of Its leaders, Senator Lodge, Republican, and Senator Underwood, Democrat, as American negotiators. Applause interrupted the President before he had been speaking two minutes. The President's renewed disavowal of "foreign entanglements" received more applause, but this came chiefly from the Republican side. When the President concluded another burst of applause greeted himv Immediately following the President's departure from the senate chamber, the treaties werereferred to the senate foreign relations committee on a motion by Senator Lodge of Massachusetts, its chairman:' The President said that if the senate turned down the treaties "the republic would be Jlseredited, future peace efforts rendered futile and unlikely, and discouragement would be written where there is now world four-powere- d resentatives of foreign countries, members of the Roman aristocracy and a vast assemblage filling the great structure.

Debate On Treaties Washington. Senate debate on the treaties framed by the Anns Conference will be opened this week. The debate will be started in advance of action by the Foreign Relations Committee, which has the treaties before it. Much mystery is attached here to the recall of the Chinese delegates to the Arms Conference by the Peking Government. Denial by Dr. Wellington Koo, .Chinese Minister. to London, and the only one of the three delegates in Washington at this time, that there was any serious Import to" the recall, has not dulled speculation in official circles. live-powere- d, Strike in Cotton Mills Boston, Mass. Organized operatives In cotton mills employing 21,000 hands in New Hampshire and Massachusetts will go on strike in protest agaiust a wage reduction of 20 per cent.

Approximately 8,000 operatives in Rhode Island textile plants have been on strike for-- the last three weeks in protest against wage cuts. POLICE ORDERED TO SHOOT Editor News: The front page of the News alone contains more news and information than the entire issues of half a dozen average county newpapers. I never got even a trace of my automobile stolen from me in Louisville, last summer, but the good business men of my church gave me another in its place. I always read the News with keen interest. Two things in recent issues of your paper have interested me greatly. The first was a move to establish in Louisville, a historical building, in connection with the State Fair. When this is done I have a contribution to make to this enterprise. I have three letters written by my Uncle Marion Harmon, dated in 1817, and written by him when he was assisting in making the Northwestern survey between the U, S. and Canada. The other contribution or it may be, appearing on the first page of next to the last issue and headed, "Do You Remember?" The last paragraph of this article in that issue is as follows: "The number of people who were in Columbia the day the Fitzpatricks were hanged. The roofs of all the houses in the neighborhood of the jail were lined with men and boys. One woman, standing about fifty yards from the gallows fainted, requiring some little time to bring her around all right." One of the outstanding things in my memory is witnessing the hanging of the Fitzpatricks. Fronrthe rear of the Page boarding house I saw Rube and Champ ascend the gallows, heard their brief talks, saw the black caps tied on, but turned my heard to keep from seeing them drop. Now, I have forgotten the date this hanging, but I happened to have a little book in which I've kept a record of marriages I performed for about the first ten years of my ministry. When I read the above clipping, I said to my wife: "I don't, know, anyone else know the number present at that hanging, but I know that in less than one year of that date I performed the ceremony that united Rube's wife to another man." So I got my little book and found this record in it: "My twelfth wedding cerenei-therdoes Ed and myself will be history. With all good wklne for the News, Very cordially-- , M. F.
