A Legal Affair.
BY GUY A. JAMIESON.
(Copyright, 1901, by Dally Story Pub, Co.)
The little sign screaked monoton
ously as it swayed back and forth
In the wind. In fact, it was the only
sign of animation for two blocks, bar
a rival sign across the street that
screaked and swayed. Just as vehe
mently, and to as little purpose. The
Bign in question Informed the pub'.ic,
or would have, had there been
a public, that John D. Marberry was
an attorney and real estate agent, and
that be had a choice lot of residence,
business, farm and ranch property for
sale or rent on easy terms. The tru.u
Is, the town of Archer was for sale or
rent on easy terms; and the few fami
lies, who had not already lei 1 for a less
drouthy country, remained from neces
sity more than choice.
John D. Marberry, who had come
West to grow up with the country,
was, at the Very time of which I write,
sitting in a small, hot, dusty office be
neath the screaking sign, gazing ab
stractedly up the deserted street, out
to the Interminable stretch of parched
prairie. When he located in Archer
it was on a "boom"; immigration was
pouring Into the county, the Retta
and Taw R. R. had been surveyed to
the town, and everything indicated
an era of development and prosperity.
But, for some reason, not known to
the public, the road was not built;
and short crops and two years of
drouth had caused, to use an expres
sion usually applied to such condi
tions, the whole bottom to drop out
John D. Marberry's thoughts were
not as abstract as his appearance. In
fact, they had a very practical trend.
Ho was thinking seriously of selling
out, lock, stock and barrel, if such an
expression is applicable to the law
and real estate business, and moving
back Emit. . He had made a bad ven
ture, be had been disappointed, he
was heartily tired of the dry monot
ony of things. The West held but one
attraction for him and but for said
attraction this story would not have
been written. He bad met Miss Ola
Mann, and that meant that he had
fallen under the spell of her charming
personality. Miss Ola was the daugh
ter of a rich old rancher, who num
bered his acres and cattle by the
thousands. In the active out-door life
she had led she had developed into a
superb specimen of the western wom
anshe was beautiful, cultured,
wealthy. Therein lay the perplexity
of the case. Marberry felt himself a
man of parts, that be had a future,
but, for the present, be was stranded.
He had often thought over the matter
as he tossed restlessly nights, and as
be sat dejected in the stuffy little of
fice watching the dust drift down the
deserted street. To presumptuously,
boldly speak bis mind and put an end
to the consuming uncertainly, or
move East, establish himself, and
write that was the question. Once,
as he returned from a Fourth of July
celebration, where be, as the orator
of the occasion, had covered himself
with glory, he had been, on the point
the paper and motioning Marberry to
"What is it?" asked Marberry.
"Mann has made an assignment.'
"Can't be true."
"That's what the paper says."
Marberry folded the inventory
slowly and pushed it into his pocket.
He walked over to the Star office
and talked to Tooly. On his depart
ure he took a paper from the mailing
desk, then went to the postofflce and
got another out of bis box. Prof.
Bennet was reading the Star to a
crowd of six. Tho "assignment" was
the local of interest. Another item,
Marberry had overlooked, was also re
ceiving its share of comment Miss
Ola Mann had secured a position in
the Archer school. Prof. Bennet tes

had seemed to parry his words, and

But, now, his mind was made up.

bad Invested pretty heavily In real
estate and would likely remain, as
there waa no prospect of his disposing
of it for some years. He could sell
bis plunder to him; If not, why, he
would take It with fata.
Taylor was looking over the last
Issue of the Archer Star, a copy he
had taken from the press, strictly
against the rules of tho office, only
ten minutes' before.

casting It on the hot wind. He en
tered his office and took down the
duster that had been taking a pro
tracted rest. Every book and piece of
furniture was gone over carefully and
re-arranged. When he sat down to
his desk again there was a tidy and
prosperous appearance about the room
that It had not worn since the days of
the railroad boom. John I). Marberry
had finally determined that the fate of
Archer should be his fate sink or
swim, survive or perish he would
remain in Archer.
He went industriously to work on
an abstract of the county, an under
taking he had given up some weeks
before from sheer discouragement
He was still writing when a buggy
rolled up to the door. He looked up,
surprised at tho interruption. Miss
Ola greeted blra cordially. He has
tened out to assist her from the bugfcS.
If her father's financial embarrass
ment weighed heavily on her mind,
she was successful, indeed, In conceal
ing it She was the same fresh, sen
sible, charming Miss Ola.
"I have Just read the Star, Miss
Ola," began Marberry, when they were
seated. "You'll pardon me for refer
ring to It, a,d allow me
"Excuse me," broke in Miss Ola;
"but please do not mention it. There's
nothing to be sorry for we still have
the home place and, you know, I have
secured a position In the school. After
all, what is a little more or less prop
erty? " Here are some papers father
told me to hand to you. He wishc3
you to look over them." She rose to
go. Marberry rose also.
"I have something to say to you,
Miss Ola," he began, stepping nearer;
"something I would have said before
this bad it not been for certain cir
cumstances and which, but for certain
other circumstances, I would not say
Miss Ola resumed her seat.
"I desire you to know, Miss Ola," h"
continued hesitatingly; "that I love
Miss Ola'g eyes were on the floor,
roses came and went on her cheeks.
Then, she looked up sweetly and said:
"I'm sure, Mr. Marberry, I'm not dis
pleased." Not a single client dropped In to
Interrupt the conversation that fol
lowed. But then, if there had been
clients in Archer it would not have
happened Just as it did.
The rival sign across the street was
still screaking and flappl ,-5 frulUiMly
when Marberry and his vs. tor stepped
Into tbe buggy and rolled off.
Taylor eyed them critically over the
corner of his paper. There was some
thing telltale about bis rival that
caused his thoughts to go wandering
back to a sunny day now buried,
with many other bright ttalnRS, in tho
past when he had entered the land
Wi-ere Love Is king.
"There'll soon be another local In
tho Star," he mused, and his thoughts
drifted back to silent streets, scorched
prairie, and bad Investments.
A few months later there was a quiet
wedding out at Mann's Ranch. Tooly,
of the Star, was best man. Taylor
congratulated his rival heartily. Mar
berry well, Marberry was happy.
Archer Is no longer a deserted vil
lage, but a thriving western metropo
lis. Tbe screaking sign that Capped
above Marberry's office has long since
ceased to screak. Marberry occupies
elegant rooms above Mann and Mar
berry's bank. Those who write him
use the prefix "Hon."

The spring is the time to treat ca
tarrh. Cold, wet winter weather often
retards a cure of catarrh. If a course
of Peruna Is taken during the early
spring months the cure will be prompt
and permanent. There can be no fail

during the favorable weather of spring.
