to have a real ball team and have
a game scheduled fer the coming

mouth while she broke off a thread

the needle slipped down her throat.

steel instrument she still has some
misgrievings as to the result which
may follow er develop.

Yates, returneel overseas soldier of the
A. E. F. Yate's is a Kansas City boy
anel used to be a switchman for the
Kelt line ef that city. Four years
ago he met Frances Smith, a depot
restaurant cashier. They were mar
ried. Then he enlisteel in overseas
servie-e. Frances went to Chicago to
work for the Harvey restaurant in
the Dearborn street depot.
After a year wor-1 came that Roy
Yates had been killeei in action. With
the passing of time Frances was
transferred to the eating house at
Milwaukee. There ' she met and
married Guy McCracken, another
switchman. With the pressure of eco
nomic conditions Guy founel himself
laid off indefinitely and the couple
came to live with Ed Smith, an un
cle of the girl, who rents a small farm
several miles northwest of Wood Riv
er. Hall county.
Wednesday evening Frances re
ceived a telephone call to come to
town and bring her husband to the
depot. There she found Roy Yates,
who had just been released from an
eastern hospital. He had lost one
arm and his fae-e was slightly dis
fgured. He had traced France's to
Grand Island. Meeting resulted in
McCracken returning to the Smith
farm with Roy and Frances where
they planned to pack and go to Chi
cago to straighten a few things leg
ally. As the family sat at supper Frances
was seen to hurry elownstairs ta an
auteimobile waiting in the road and
was whisked away. Behind her she
left a note:
"Dear Roy and Guy: "I'm leaving
with George McDonald and we're go
ing east te be happy. Roy, the war
ruined your looks and Guy, you don't
have a job and I love George, though
you've both been good to me.
The two men had the old bachelor
uncle bring them to Grand Island
freim the western part of the county
late Wednesday night. Both restless
ly paced the platform of the Union
Pacific depot till first No. 20, Un
ion Pacific, went east.
Yates went into the smoking room
and sat down, sobbing. A reporter
beared him and as Yates and Mc
Cracken told their story they said
that McDonald had been a Northwest
ern passenger brakeman who, beth
in Chicago and Milwaukee, had
sheiwn much attentiem to Frances.
The two men took the train east
in the hope of locating the girl. "I
want Yates to have her; she's really
his." said McCracken. Prior to her
advent into the job as restaurant
cashier Yates said his wife had been
a vaudeville actress and singer, but
that an operation for tonsilitis ruin
ed further dramatic prospects.
Ed Smith, her farmer uncle and for
whom she has been keeping house,
accompanied the young men on the
train. They believe that the e-euple
will motor to Milwaukee or Chicago
and expect to beat them there.
