BED CLOUD, NEBRASKA, CHIEF
ONLY A LOVER'S WAY
By JAMES H. HULL.
In the spring of tho year the path
called "Lover's Way" led through a
tangle of budding wild rose bushes
and trailing woodbine. In October the
woodblno was still there, a glory of
red and gold, and the sumach crowd
ed Its luxuriant foliage and rich ma
hogany tlntod blooms until there was
scarcely room for lovers to walk.
Dorothy Penfleld hurried through
the Way one autumn day with eyes
that would not see the beauty of the
tinted foliage on elthor side. There
was a acared look In her face and her
little hand clonched a letter tightly.
Out of tho Way was tho broad drive
that led up to the big mansion on he
till!. Old Cato, driving the carrlago
horses for exercise, stared after his
young mlstross with rolling eyes.
"Miss Dolly done got a scare, I
reckon!" he muttered clucking to tho
lazy sorrels. "Her om de greatcs
young lady fer gettln' scatrt at little
Dut Dorothy thought she had ex
ccllont reason to be disturbed this
afternoon. She hurried Into tho
toUBO and went straight to the library
where there was a hickory fire on tho
wide hearth. Curled In her fnvorlto
chair before tho flro was her dearest
friend. Lisa Mason.
"Dearl" cried Lisa' In her pretty
gushing way. "I've been waiting an
age for you."
Dorothy frowned. "I came right
back, Lisa. I haven't been gone fif
Lisa was quite unabashed. "Well,
I've been waiting all of five minutes,
Dorothy tossed aside her red felt
hat and curled herself on the hearth
rug with her round white chin cupped
In one pink palm. Suddenly as if Just
ware of tho letter she carried, she
tossed It Into the fire and resumed
her former position. '
Lisa gazed curiously at the letter
nd to Dorothy's keen disgust the
flames licked the envelope open and
spread 'the sheets wide for anyone to
read. Dorothy wished sho had not
'possessed such a splashing handwrit
ing. Certain words of the burning
missive stood out strongly before they
turned black and shrlreled away.
"Dearest Phil." "The day has been
o long " "You can read your an
swer ." "Ever yours, Dolly."
There we're many sentences dozens
of them in between the first and the
last that no one could read except the
hungry flames, for there were several
sheets of paper thickly covered with
the loving words that had dripped
from Dorothy's hasty pen.
Lisa Mason read the words shame
lessly and then turned round eyes
upon her friend. Dorothy's head was
tent In deep dejection.
"Well, Dolly girl," said Lisa briskly,
slipping down beside her friend, "I re
ceived your note asking me to come
over and consult about the wedding
flxln's hero I am and hero you are
glum as can bo. Let's talk about pret
ties," she coaxed.
"There's nothing to talk about,"
said Dolly turning sad eyes on her
friend. "Thero Isn't to be any wed
ding." "No wedding!" shrieked Lisa, "No
trousseau? No flxln's T"
"No, nothing!" returned Dolly with
an air of finality.
"But, you said this morning that
you wanted to see me about the wed
ding plans, and I've got my brides
maid's dress half made and"
"Oh, keep still!" snapped Dorothy,
with tears brimming her hazel eyes,
i Lisa stared; her pretty mouth
trembled as If speech would not be
-confined, but by a supreme effort the
little fair-hatred girl regained her con
trol and her natural keenness.
, "It's a quarrel, I suppose?" she
Dolly shook her head.
"There Is no quarrel only I've aim
ply found him out!"
"Found out about Phil Waring?"
"Well, what about him? I thought
he was a perfect dear, and if It hadn't
been' that his brother Ralph was ten
times dearer In my estimation, you
would never have won Doctor Philip,
Dolly jshrugged her Indifferent
"Dut you are still wearing his
ring" reminded Lisa with a curlouB
glance at tho diamonds on Dorothy's
"I had forgotten," said Dorothy,
slipping off the ring and tossing it
Into the waste paper basket so tempt
ingly near at hand.
"My, but we're reckless!" muttered
Lisa. "Love letters In the flames and
diamond rings In the waste paper

J Dorothy's winsome face went very

she declared. "Dut It's a waste of
money for him to buy a ring like that
Tor a girl he doesn't care for."
, "Doesn't care for?" shrieked Lisa,
losing all patlonco. "Why Dolly Pen

with pitying eyes.
"Why you poor thing, you're Just

"Don't you dare pity mo!" cried
Dorothy fiercely. "If you had been
there If you had seem him If you
had seen her!" Her voice broke sud
"Tell mo about It, doar," urged Lisa
with a sudden change of tone.
Dorothy turned her head away and
looked Into tho flro.
"You cannot know that half way
down Lovor's Way thero Is a hole In
a hollow trco that Phil and 1 call our
postofllce. Sometimes 'he leaves a

"Well, I hurried down to tho Way,
and I had nearly reached tho hollow

"No no no I don't believe it!"
cried Linn violently.
"It really Is true. Lisa. I don't
know who she was because her faco
was hidden but I suppose sho was
pretty although Phil always said he
preferred. brunettes. And sho looked
as though her hair was fixed with
peroxide or something."
"Perhaps she was a patient who
was feeling 111 or something," sug
gested Lisa faintly,
"Humph!" snlffod Dorothy coldly.
"You don't seem to havo much faith
In tho man you promised to marry,"
remarked Lisa tartly. "You've thrown
your ring away and broken your en
gagement with Phil Waring, tho dear
est and truest of men, when you don't
know but what there Is a porfectly
logical reason for what you saw to
day." "That cannot be proved."
Lisa Mason arose and patted her
tightly clinging white serge skirt Into
place. "I'm strongly tempted not to
prove It to you, you havo so little
faith In the best of men," she said.
"How can you prove It?" demanded
Dorothy, also rising.
Lisa pointed dramatically to the
leather couch In the corner where
the warm afternoon sun came In tho
window and rested on a scarlet coat.
Dorothy looked and two pink spots
flew to her cheeks. "You?" she de
"Yes, my dear, It was my 'horrid
yellow head' that rested on tho manly
arm of Dr. Waring," mimicked Miss
Mason, with evident enjoyment and a
bit of spite In her manner; "and
ploaso noto, Dorothy Penfleld, that
the color of my hair Is my own and
always has been, as you very well
Dorothy was looking very cold and
frozen Just then. Even the pink spots
had feded away. Warm-hearted Lisa
ran to her and put her arms around
the shrinking shoulders.
"It's such a foolish mistake, dear,
and all my fault," she cried remorse
fully. "If you had remained I would
undoubtedly have fallen on your
shoulder as well as Phil's, and be
dewed your pretty frock with my
tears! I know he felt mighty un
comfortable all the time! Of course
you didn't recognize my new scarlet
coat Isn't it a beauty? Aunt Anne
brought It from Richmond today.
"Well, to make a long story short,
and to drive the tears away from your
dear eyes, I had a wretched quarrel
with Ralph last night, and he went
away In his Impetuous manner, threat
ening to leave for the north today,
and go to the other end of tho world.
"I didn't sleep a wink last night,
and all morning I waited for him to
come and make up, but he didn't ap
pear. So after luncheon I started
down to Dr. Phil's to ask him If he
wouldn't see Ralph and tell him for
me that It was all a mistake. Just
as I reached Lover's Way I saw tho
doctor's car at the end of the Way,
and bis coattalls were Just disappear
ing among the sumachs.
"So I ran after him and fell weep
ing Into his arms, and frightened him
most to death. Ho kept asking: 'Has
anything happened to Dolly? Is Dolly
all right?' until I Just bowled out
what was the matter, and then h
laughod and said his young brother
needed Just fancy my feelings, Dolly
ho said Ralph needed a' good old
fashioned licking thoso are tho very
words he used! Dut he did comfort
me beautifully, In such a nlco eider
brother sort of way, and he said Ralph
would come around all right he said
that Ralph had been glooming around
"So so Dorothy, shall we talk
wedding things?" ended Lloa smiling
archly at Dorothy's radiant little face.
Then aho added swiftly: "Here thoy
como, Dolly, Phil and Ralph and
Ralph Is bearing poaco offerings
candy and flowers,"
"Walt!" cried Dolly, breathlessly, as
she fumbled in the waste paper bas
ket. "Walt, Lisa, don't let them In
until I get my dear ring!"

CREPE AND CHIFFON
THAT MATCH HAT
IN keeping with the Ideas of the sea
son, which show a preference for
muffs and neck pieces to match the
hat, crape has been utilized to make
very chic accessories to be worn with
mourning millinery. The most popular
fashions In bats, aa to shape and deco-
ration, lend themselves with unusual
appropriateness to this material.
The crapo sot of three pieces, hat;
muff and scarf, shown in this plcturo,
Illustrates bow successfully this beau
tiful fabrlo may be used In this way.
Except for the silk lining of the muff,
no other material is required to make
and trim the several pieces, except a
strip of rather heavy chiffon which
forms tho scarf. The ornaments on
each piece are fashioned of the crape.
