Friday. Theio were 1(XX) melons in tlio

npleco. They were certainly line
melons and tho ilavor was exception
ully good. We know, for the editor
was presented with one for which we
are very thankful.
The light rains and the cool weather
have placed the late corn out of dan
ger. Tho the corn crop will not be as
large ns it promised earlier in the sea
son yet conservative men place tho
yield nt from -'0 to JO bushels per aero.
This yield, together with the bumper
crop of wheat and tho abundance ot
alfalfa and potatoes will put the
county on easy street for another
jroar.

TALE OF A PUME
i
V
y
I
By CLAUDINE SMYTHE.
"All my life," began tho fltout girl,
ns she removed her lint nnd hold It
up to undergo a critical survey, "I've
had n wild longing to possess a hut
'with a plunfo. 1'vo been possessed
,wlth envy of every girl I saw with n
rcal plumo on her lint. I've stood hours
longing for tho wealth of plumes dis
played in shop windows but 1
'never felt that 1 could get one I"
"You see, when I wus a Imby nn
undo of mine died, nnd his wlfu gavo
my mother the white plume from his
helmet; for ho belonged to some uni
formed order or other nnd had n
plume to march with, you know.
"Well, mother packed Hint plume
nwny in blue tlssuo paper, so it
wouldn't turn yellow, und wnltcd for
mo to grow up.
"When I became old enough to
think ubout pretty hats, mother
brought out tho plume, tiud wo looked
It ovor.
"Just then, however, everybody was
wearing llttlo clusters of tut short
tips, nudvthat long ntrnggly ostrich
feather of mine, no matter how you
curled It, never could have boon worn
on tho street without nttrnctlng un
pleasant nttontlon. So we sorrow
fully wrnpped It up ngnin, and 1 dream
ed of the next year, when styles
would change, whllo mother pressed
out some plaid ribbon und, tied it
urouud my hat!
"Well, when tho uext year came, be
hold tho plumo! Even mother hnd
to laugh when wo looked at It. Every
0110 had a willow plume, If she huiT
anything, nnd tho willow plumes wero
thick and long and thrllllngly exquis
ite. Tho helmet plume, Hat nnd
scrawny,' looked In comparison like
a llttlo ulloy cat bcsldo a big bluo rib
bon angora!
"I remembor I uhed real tears that
year over tho disappointment. Uut
mother had some cast Iron or
India rubber or something equally
strong, that resembled n bunch of
black feathers, and we tucked those
on my 'hat, whero I had imagined tho
plumo would wave, und I wont out lu
tho world and protended thero waB no,
skeleton In our closet!
"Of course, mother and I agreed!
that It would bo perfectly cllly for m&
to buy another plumo so long as wo
had ono In tho house not in use! For
wo havo always been taught to
uso what we havo and finish using it
beforo buying more. It'n rather diffi
cult sometimes to realize tho logic of
this system, but in tho long run It's
very economical. Why, I'd havo had
several expensive hats during those
year of waiting ir it hadn't boon for
that perfectly good, mussud plumo up
in U10 closet!
"Then last year, when I read tho
willow plumed wero quite out of tli
swim, and ordinary plumes would be
used again, I got out my long slim
natural feather, feeling very righteous
lu tho knowledgo that thoro was noth-
"Dut Now Has Come My Reward."
Ing artlllciul about It, aa thcro was
nbout fill willow plumes. It wna
strictly ns tho 03trlch had presented
It to the public!
"I curled up tho plume and had my
lint selected to appear early lu Feb
ruary, when low and behold! Thoy
weren't wearing plumes at all! Aud
those who dared to Ignore tho stylos
bought very rich expensive plumes to
,b1iow they could afford newer stylos
If thoy wished, but that thuy pre
if erred ostrich feathers.
"Of courso I couldn't even protond
that my feather was of tho cxpenslvo
sort. No ono would huve been so gul
'llblo. It would have had to bo aw
fully stylish to bo posslblo at all! So
I wrapped it up again!
"Uut now hno corno my reward!
Thcro Isn't ono of you who can beat
my plumo for stylo. Seo, I've pushed
'half of It up and tied it with a little
bow and half of it down and tied it
with another llttlo bow; cid behold, a
French creation!" '
"Sweet!" exclaimed tho thin girl,
reaching for tho hat nnd trying it on.
"I think my father belongs -to eomo
society or something, und I'm going
homo and seo if ho lifts a plume."
Then sho departed In Cbgor hasto.
