Lowe, Jr., of this city, were quietly married at the beautiful home of Mr, and Mrs John Lee Walker, Mrs. Walker being a sister of the bride. Miss Ellen Alexander, of Burkesville, was Maid of Honor and Mr. Shreve Davis was the best man. Eld. Wheeler pronounced the ceremony in a ' beautiful manner. Mrs. Lowe has visited in Columbia a number of times and the many friends she has made are delighted rto have her make her home here- She is a charming young woman whom every one who knows loves. Mr. Lowe is a young man of sterling worth, who also possesses a host of friends, who wish him all happiness and success. The bride and groom left immediately for their wedding trip.

The little folks are outspoken in their desires, and many write letters to Santa, telling him what they mostly desire.

It will nob only be of great benefit to the business of Columbia, but the tobacco growers of the entire county will receive better returns for their crops than ever before known. If there is any class of men who ought to receive full value for their labor, it is the farmer who makes and puts the stuff on the market. There are some growers in the county who have not entered the pool but when the checks begin to come in they will wish they had joined.

He saw that she sensed the untruthfulness of these last words. Her smooth young forehead and her eyes were shadowy with thought.

CHAPTER IL Bob Connery, conductor, receives orders to hold train for a party. Five men and a- girl board the train. The father of the girl, Mr. Dome, Is the person for whom the train was held. Philip D. Eaton, a young man, also boarded the train. Dome tells his daughter and his secretary, Don Avery, to find out what they can concerning him. - "I think you should meet my father, Mr. Eaton," she said. "Would you like to?" He did not reply at once. He knew that his delay was causing her to study him now with great surprise. "I would like to meet him, yes," he said, "but" he hesitated, tried to avoid answer without offending her, but already he had affronted her "but not now. Miss Dome." She stared at him, rebuffed and chilled. "You mean The sentence, obviously, was one she felt It better not to finish. As though he recognized that now she must wish the conversation to end, he got up. She rose stiffly. "I'll see you into your car, if you're returning there," he offered. Neither spoke, as he went with her Into the next car; and at the section where her father sat, Eaton bowed silently, nodded to Avery, who coldly returned his nod, and left her. Eaton went on into his own car and sat down, his thoughts In mad confusion. How near he had come to talking to this girl about himself, even though he had fel from the first that that was what she was trying to make him dor Was he losing his common sense? Was the on which he bad so counted that he had dared to take this train deserting him? He felt that he must not see Harriet Dome again alone. In Avery he had recognized, by that Instinct which so strangely divines the personalities one meets, an enemy from the start; Dome's attitude toward him, of course, was not yet defined; as for Harriet Dome he could not tell whether she was prepared to be his enemy or friend. Eaton went into the men's compartment of his car, where he sat smoking till after the train was under way again. The porter looked in upon him there to ask If he wished his berth made up now; Eaton nodded assent, and fifteen minutes later, dropping self-comma- vsif Year-IYear-O- ut :jz FournTillies a Year Free inspection four times a year as long as your trucks last, and the longer they last the better we like it.

She had halted almost in front of them. Avery, hesitating as though he did not know what he ought to do, finally arose; and as Eaton observed that Avery, having introduced himself, appeared now to consider it his duty to present Eaton to Harriet Dome, Eaton also arose. fAveryJmur:' mured the names. Harriet Dome, resting her hand on the back of Avery's chair, joined In the conversation.. As he replied easily and Interestedly to a comment of Eaton's, Avery suddenly reminded her of her father. After a minute, when Avery still ungracious and still irritated over something which Eaton could not guess rather abruptly left them, she took Avery's seat; and Eaton dropped Into his chair beside her. rather." possible. He had been thera only a few mln- uics, uunevci, nil en, luumug up, lie saw Harriet Dome and Avery enter the room. They passed him, engaged in conversation, and stood by the rear door looking out into the storm. It was evident to Eaton, although he did not watch them, that they were arguing something; the girl seemed insistent, Avery irritated and unwilling. Her manner showed that she won hef point finally She seated herself in one of the cliairs, and Avery left her. He wandered, as If aimlessly, to the reading table, turning over the magazines there; abandoning them, he gazed about as if bored; then, with a wholly casual manner, he came toward Eaton and took the seat beside him. "Rotten weather, isn't it?" Avery observed somewhat ungraciously. Eaton could not well avoid a reply. "It's been getting worse." he commented, "ever since we left Seattle." "We're runninpr into it, apparently." Again Avery looked toward Eaton and waited. "Yes lucky if we got through." The eomersatlon ru Avery's part was patenth forced, and it was equally foned on Eaton's; nevertheless it continued. Av ery introduced the war snd other subjects upon which men, thrown together for a time, are accustomed to exchange opinions. But Avery did not do it easily or naturally; he plainlj was of the caste whose pose it is to repel, not seek, overtures toward a chance acquaintance. His lack of practice was perfectly obvious when t last he asked directly: "Beg pardon, but I don't think I know your name." Eaton was obliged to give it. "Mine's Avery," the other offered; "perhaps you heard it when we were getting our berths assigned." And again the conversation, enjoyed by neither of them, went on. Finally the girl at the end of the car rose ana passed them, as though leaving the car. Avery looked up. ' "Where are you going, Harry?" "I think someone ought to be with v Dome motioned Avery to the aisle, where already some of the passengers, having settled their belongings In their sections, were beginning to wander through the cars seeking acquaintances or players to make up a card game. Eaton took from a bag a handful of cigars with which he filled a plain, uninitialed cigar case, and went toward the club and observation car in the rear. As he passed through the sleeper next to him the last one Harriet Dome glanced up at him and spoke to her father; Dome nodded but did not look up. The observation room was" nearly empty. The only occupants were a young woman who was reading a and an elderly man. Eaton chose a seat as far from these two as mag-az&- e, Dome Meets Eaton.

He could not look up without looking directly at hex, for her chair, which had not been moved since Avery left it, was at an angle with To avoid the appearance of' studying her too openly, he turned slightly, so that his gaze went past her to the white turmoil outside the windows. "It's wonderful," she said, "isn't It?" "You mean the storm?" A twinkle of amusement came to Ealon's eyes. "It would be more interesting if it allowed a little more to be seen.

"Is that the only way It affects you? artist would think of it as a background for contrasts a thing to sketch or paint ; a writer as something to be written down in word's." Eaton understood. She, could not more plainly have asked him what he An was. "And an engineer, I suppose," he said, easily, "would think of it only as an element to be Included in his formulas an x, or an a, or a b, to be put In somewhere and square-roote- d s or squared so that the he was figuring should not buckle under its weight." "Oh so that is the way you were thinking of it?" "You mean," Eaton challenged her directly, "am I an engineer?" "Are you?" "Oh,1 no; I was only talking In pure generalities, just as you were." "Let us go on, then," she said gayly. "I see I. can't conceal frorh you that I am doing you the honorito wonder what you are. A lawyer would think of it in the light of damage it might tereate and the subsequent possibilities of litigation." She made a uttle pause "A business man would take it into account, as he has to take into account all things in nature or human; it would delay transportation", or harm or aid the winter wheat."

He had let himself sink back against the pillows, while he stared, unseelngly, at the solid bank of snow 'e the oar, when the door at the farther end of the coach opened and Conductor Connery entered, calling a name. Mr. Lawrence "Mr. Hlllwrd I Telegram for Mr. Hillwardl" car told him all was correct here; the even breathing within the berth assured him the passengers slept. Connery had been becoming more certain hour by hour all through the evening that they were going to hae great diiliculry in getting the train through. Though he knew by President Jarvis' note that the officials of the road must be watching the progress of this especial train with particular Interest, he had received no train orders from the west for several hours. His inquiry at the last stop had told him the reason for this ; the telegraph wires to the west had gone down. To the east communication was still open, but how long it 1 !

Presently he began to feel the train beginning to labor with the increasing grade and the deepening now. It was nearing the mountains, and the weather was getting colder and the storm more severe. Euton lifted the curtain from the window beside him and leaned on one elbow to look out. The train was running through a bleak, white desolation ; no light and no sign of- habitation showed anywhere.

Ismet Pasha is not worried over the attempts of George Tchitcherin, the Soviet Foreign Minister, to turn Turkey away from Europe and America and plunge her into the antfs of Soviet Russia. He refused to influence Turkish correspondents against sending to their home newspapers full accounts of Tchiteherin's strictures that Turkey by opening the Dardenelles, was exposing both Turkey and Russia to future destruction by the great Powers. Unmoved by the Bolshevist blast, Ismet tranquilly went to Geneva as the guest of honor at a dinner arranged by the Ottoman Society. A leading Turkish publicist, cabling to Constantinople, introduced his narrative of Tchiteherin's warnings to Turkey by relating the story of the Grand Vizier, who, when in doubt as how to rule his realm, invariably decided upon a policy the reverse of that desired by Russia. "That Grand Vizier was right," declared the Turkish correspondent, "because Russia is our hereditary enemy. Tchitcherin prates about affinity and community of interests between the Russians and Tnrks, but we are not forgetting that there are n 30,000,000 Turks in who, if they dwelt formerly under the oppression of Czarism, are ruled by an iron hand under the blight of Russia-Turkesta- Department of Commerce Figures for Month of October Show Great Improvement Export Trade Shows Great Gain.
