There you have Spur's big reason in a
nutshell. It's what an American
Legion man said after he had pufFecl
a Spur for a moment or two.
He knew cigarettes. Found how com

in France. And he ncw what he was
talking about when he said:
"More Lie a Smoke"
That's because you can taste the good
tobacco in Spurs. You get the aroma
of a new and delicious blend of the
finest leaf grown in Turkey, fine Bur
ley and other homegrown tobaccos.

is crimped not pasted.

effort was made to untangle lt.s sltni
0'iltlcM. The precise opposite of tho
hi oud, fur extending struct called
Straight, II was nnttirally termed
Crooked stieet, Ah time went on and
the town grow they changed tho name
to IScllcphiluo nvenue, hut the old set
tler nnd even the younger generation
very often called It by Its old name.
It was probably mere clrcumstnncu
thnt lodged Vernon Blnlr on Straight
street. The thoroughfare was respect
able nnd he was of a character that
would peek such an eirvlrontnent. It
wns predilection, however, thnt drift
ed I'.lake Massey to Crooked street.
Gradually that avenue had b.'cotne ob
scure, Its houses dilapidated. It was
Hip social dumping ground of the town
uud what there were of drinking plncei
and the like found a harbor that suit
ed them. Massey had decent rooms
nbove a pawn shop. lie liked to be
ntnld scenes of nctlvlty and excitement
and tho place stilted him. He never
stopped to think that the eomp'nnlon
ship ho Incidentally gained wns not
elevating, hut he cherished his lively
evenings among men who liked to see
what they called "life."
He had charge of it lloor In the
principal department store of the
town and Vernon lllulr was tho man
ager of another paying the best sal
ary In the establishment. l.Inlr had
worked hard and faithfully to gain
thl pre-eminence. He had honest
dreams of a future nnd when ho fell
In love with I.esblu Htirrow he fan
cied he saw .success before him.
Jllnlr was uneasy when he learned
that Massey had been Introduced to
Lesbln by a mutual friend nnd noted
thnt his flnhy ways had a certain
effect In Interesting Lesbln, her fami
ly nnd her friciuR
There was' n Haunting, specious fel
low named Orcg Barth with whom
Miioy trained and one day nt tho
noon hour these two met In a restau

"Well, I fancy I've set the ropes,"

its this Burrows girl you are so wild
over, Is concerned, I don't think her
folks will tolerate much of Blnlr's
company after a letter I Imvo got a

Blnlr's department last week?"
"Well, leave the rest to Ned. I've
posted him and he Is clever ns they
make them. Pretty soon Blnlr's de
partment will be In a muddle, missing
goods, neglept In deliveries nnd all

"I do," nssented his unprincipled
confrere, "nnd I won't begrudge a

A month Inter to the amazement of
everybody who knew him, Vernon
Blnlr was dismissed from the service
of the store. Because the parents of
Lesbln began to act coldly and sus
piciously toward him he left Mill
vllle, attempting no explanation of his
dismissal, and took a subordinate posi
tion In Empton. Thifi confirmed n
cortnln suspicion Mr. nnd Mrs. Bur
rows entertained, for a letter that
coupled his name with n young lady
who came from that town had reached
them. Lesbln mourned, but she bore
her grief In silence for clrcumstnuces
allowed no meeting with Blair again.
One day Lesbln was passing a
street corner when nn automobile
furiously driven turned It Sharply. A
Ind of about sixteen was directly In
its path. lie was borne down nnd
then tossed against the curb. 'Iho
spot wns only n square from Lcsbla's
home. She recognized tho lad as Ned
Trotter, know thnt ho lived poorly
with strangers and In her sympnthy
and Interest In nn orphaned hoy had
him conveyed to her own home.
For n week Ned wns given tender
nnd willing enre by tho Burrows fami
ly. Ills Injuries were quite serious,
hut he mended rapidly. Ho was seated
In an invalid chair on tho porch one
dny, when he noticed Lesbln gazing
nt a photograph, her eyes brimming
with tears. The original of the pic

Tho better nnturo of Ned stirred
within him. lie rccnlled tho plot
ngnlnst Blair In which he hnd been In
duced to act. He knew nbout tho
falso letter, no had come to Idolize
these new friends who had done so
much for him.
"Miss Burrows." he ppokc, "I have
done you and Mr. Blnlr a great
wrong. Will you help me right it?"
And then the whole story came out.
It presented Ned In no enviable light.
"But I'm willing to suffer If I have
to," ho docfared plucklly. "My pn.rt
I will freely, confess. All I say, about
tho letter I will prove."
It took only a few days for Lesbln
to straighten out the tanglo thnt
threatened to destroy her happiness
and that of Vernon Blnlr. Quietly
Massey wns discharged, as quietly
Blair wns reinstated. The plotter de
parted for parts unknown. Ills victim
won the bride of whom ho wns truly
