    NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
"A Kiss"
By JACK LAWTON
. 1920, Wwitern Smwpwpr Union.)
The house loomed deaolnte ns Cyu
tilts enme toward It. The brunches of
tko tre tdieddlng tlielc sumnior
tares wore tIcKlnt too. The loaves
crackled beiionlh Cynthia' foot na she
went on up tln Harden pntli to (ho
pillared vmmulii, onr of alienee nnd
itcny allowed everywhere. She drew
iw fur Nbout her Ihroat ns she aut
upon the hlRlie! latep to look the old
place over, the denr old plnce that hnd
heoti hor girlhood's home, this wist
fully sweet woman hnd hut to close
hor oyoa to people, the deserted rooms
with faces, long iihsonf. There her
squnro plnno had toodt nnd at tho
opposite ond of tho Impressive parlor
hnd been the pier glass, A winsome
picture that plen glass had often re
flected, n girlish vision of floating ruf
fles, with happy shining eyes beneath
softly wavy hair. Cynthia remembered
the vision of herself, ns she sat, nnd
saw It ngnln nt Its fairest clad hi
bridal array.
In satin slippers the girl Cynthia
hnd danced down tho room, her white
veil sweeping nfter, nnd lie hnd called
her "the lovllest vision In tho world."
lint thnt wns before tho kiss. Such a
simple happening to change the tenor
of one's life as It had changed Cyn
thia's. There were two suitors, you
sec, big Will Lofton, poor, adoring
nnd unrewarded. And Barton Swift,
rich by Inheritance, successful In busi
ness. By no virtue of his riches had
Cynthia chosen, hut because of her
Jove for him, with nil tho time a re
gretful ncho at the back of licr liappl
ness, because of poor WllJ's sorrow.
Not thnt Will was cowardly In defeat,
his outward mnnncr wns his bravest
best; Bartuii vum wildly triumphant,
his laughter rang out all tho day long,
tho day of his wedding to be.
.' With other friends he and Cynthia
had festooned tho hallways and rooms
with flowerp. n her white robes she
had laughingly defied superstition for
tho admiration of her lover's gaze, nnd
Barton left enraptured, before tho few
brief hours proceeding tho ceremony.
Ah he reached his own home In n bliss
ful daze, he found that he had forgot
ten to execute a ccrtnln commission,
mid returned. Entering the long room,
his steps muffled by Ihe (hick carpet,
Bnrtnn Swift beheld reflected In the
pier glass, tho picture which he never
forgot, nnd which no explanation could
satisfy. Cynthia, still In her bridal
robes, wns clasped close In the arms
of Will Lofton, and u.s Barton watched,
Will bent for her kiss. When he raised
his face from hers. Cynthia gave him
no words of anger, tears were on her
checks.
'.'You had belter go now Lofton,"
ImrlOii said sharply from tile doorway,
'nnd Will waiting only for Cynthia's
motion of dismissal had gone. "Well."
Barton asked, her with a sneering
smile)1 "so It wns my money after nil,
ct; i hey said, and you loved Lofton
nil the time." White to (lie lips with
,. Wide 'horrified eyes, Cynthia made no
reply. His sneering ymlle changed to
it harsh laugh.
"Welt, forewarned, forearmed." Bar-
' ton said cuttingly, his own pain mak
ing him cruel, "Better to have found
put In time -good-bye,"
When the girl found her voice she
was alone In the flower decked room.
Later, as the wedding hour approached
pile had In desperation thrown a cloak
nbout her shoulders and gone to Bar
ton's home to seek Iiltn. only to lenrn
that he had rushed In to the house
nnd out again with the brief word thnt
he would be long alwent.

flower wna found unconscious on tho
! floor of her room, whefi the wedding
guests came, nnd tho wedding had
never been. Immediately, a kind
i father had token her to travel abroad,
since then she had been hero or there
n her fancy or friends dictated. And
ni tho yenrs passed tho old homo be
reft of Its owners was sold, nnd the
money divided between the sisters.
Now that Cynthia's sisters were mar
ried, nnd aenttored fnr, tho old house
wa to be sold again. Cynthln rend
the advertisement In her city apart
ment, and n whimsical desire had
seized her to view the old plnco onco
more. She could think now of that
dreadful day with a smile, nnd wonder
(hut It had seemed to mean so much.
But after all the years her cheeks
burned hot at memory of nn Impulsive
fnrwell kiss. Poor Will, ho ' had
grieved deeply over the tragedy his
rash act brought about. Cynthia
wondered what sort of woman hu hnd
married. Then, iih she stood up to go,
n man camo through the great house
doorway, and stood speechlessly look
ing at her. She recognized Will Lef
ton at once, the same serious eyes,
tho patient face that years could not
touch with sternness.
"Will," cried the woman, "how
ptrnngo to meet you here, and un
changed." "Why, I nm qulto gray," Will Lef
ton said, ns ho caught her hands, "but
you arc Just Cynthln still. I came to
buy the old place," he told her.
"For your wlfo?" Cynthln ques
tioned, "There has never been but one wom
an In tho world for mo," ho nn
Bwcrcd sadly, "and I spoiled her life
with a kiss."
Then Cynthln raised to him shin
ing eyes. 1
"Will Lef ton," she asked, "Oh! aro
you sure of that?"
Ripening Fruit.
High temperatures seem, very curi
ously, to retard tho ripening of pears,
while hastening that of applet". In ex
periments described by Ovcrholsor
and Taylor in tho Botanical Gazette,
the ripening of green flrst-cron Bart-
lett pears raised from 70 degrees P.
or room temperature, to 85 degrees
was not affected, but at 87.7 degrees
It was delayed five days, and at 04 de
grees and 101 degrees tho delay wns
13 days. Second-crop Burtlott pears,
In a temperature of 101 degrees, and
surrounded by a relative humidity of
below 50 per cent, remained unripe
four weeks after similar pears at
room temperature and humidity hnd
become fully ripened. The llavor of
peaiH kept above 8." degrees was af
fected, sweetness and Juiciness being
diminished. The ripening of Yellow
Newton apples on tho other hand, was
hastened at every appreciable rlso In
temperature from r0 degrees up to
tho point of destruction by burning.
It Is concluded thnt the picking of
penrs may be delayed In very, hot
weather, hut that the picking of np
ples nnd storage In a cool place (must
be hastened.
Barnstable's Old Bell.
In the courthouse at Barnstable,
Mass., Is nn old bell, cracked and
silent, which may be, nnd probably Is,
the oldest bell In the United States.
So thinks Mr. Alfred Crocker, clerk of
courts of Bnrnstnble county. Tho date
1(l"r Is still plainly visible in tho pho
tograph recently printed In tho Bos
ton Evening Transcript.
By this date, however, the old bell
had seen nenrly a quarter of a cen
i tury of life In England before It came
j .to America and began calling wor
shipers together In the church at
Sandwich town, Orntltudo bought the
bell In Knulnntl. for It enmo ns n ulft

band, Captain Adolph, wns lost In the
