Thcro was tho caso of "tho most gorge

ative admirer called her. But she was
not born Lady lilesslngton, or Lady
anything else. Her father was a
drunken, roistering squire of Tlppcr

heavy strap, nnd perhaps she was glad
when ho married her to a British urmy
captain from the nearby garrison. This
captuln was a drunkard nnd half In

than had her father. She fled to tho
parental roof, and tho father ordered
her back to the captain.
Then Marguerite disappeared. Her
career as a vampire had begun. We
find her at twenty, one of the beauties
of Dublin. Sir Thomas Lawrence
painted a picture of her which made
both famous. Sho had several lovers
before meeting tho enrl of lilesslng

of the talented dilettantes of the
French capital. Marguerite was thirty-two,
but they Instantly loved. The

After romantic wanderings through
Italy, Marguerite enmo hack to Lou

found herself In straits. She turned
to writing, for which she always had
had some tnleut, and met with at least
a show of success. Her efforts served
to attract many notnbles to her salon.
She continued to live with d'Orsuy,
while Bulwer-Lytton, Dickons, Thack
eray, Tom Moore and Disraeli paid her
court. The "Greek god" did not seem
to care. Among the visitors was Louis

George Sand's lovers were as numer

Sho carried him off to Italy, but there

returned to Paris. George Sand fol
lowed him, heartbroken but accom

the poet to forget tho pnst. He would
not heed her appeals. Then tho doctor
went back to Italy. In desperation,
George Sand cut off her beautiful
black hair and sent It to ,de Musset
as a token of completo surrender. Still
ho would not relent. In nn'ger she
wrote a book attacking tho poet, nnd

sands In the Near Kast.
Presdent Howard writes: "I believe
that the enterprise for which the

gation of tho methods proposed for
collecting nnd handling thte gift, these

to carry out this program and that It
will do so and on thN basis it will re

farmers who are generous and who are
able to give."

to take this opportunity to commend
your organization In Its efforts to se
cure contrbutlons of grnln for tho re
lief of the starving or the Near Kast
and to give my hearty endorsement
to your plan ns it has been presented

tho greatest good for the greatest
number. It is n duty and a privilege
for the farmer to contribute to this
worthy movement and I do not hesl

farmers and fnnn organizations sup
port It with liberal contributions. Let
mo assure you that I shall lend sup
port to your work wherever possible."
While Secretary II. D. Lute of the
Nebraska Fnnn liureau Federation
says he believes: "The farmers of Ne

plus corn for the needy children of

Saunders County Sets Pace.
Saunders county which Is the leading
corn county in the state Is liard at

harvest grain appeal. It. Conrad
Johnson is the special grain chairman
for this appeal and lie is being ably
backed by Mr. F. K. Alder, former

Wahoo. In all of tho districts of the
county, groups of men, regardless of
their walk In life, are agreeing to get

Saunders county, which has been fore
moit in all former appeals of this

think of Nan living alone all her days.
Aiid she is so provoklngly distant."
Don smoked rumlnlHlngly.
"Like my friend Hob," he remnrked.
"Now take Hob, good honest fellow,
kind, gentlemanly nnd successful lu
business yet, a woman hater."
"Oh I 1 shouldn't call him that ex
actly," Don's wife defended, "It's Just
that Dob Reynolds has had so many
fussy feninles In his own family that
he Is cautious. You know, yourself,
you would hate to rlBk being tied for

"Hut he needs a sympathizing un

Daisy sighed. "No more than my
lone, lovely Nan needs a protecting
husband," she replied.
Then the two Involuntarily smiled.
"If we could manngo n meeting be

Don shook his head. "Can't be
done," ho answered decisively, "livery
time I invito old Hob out he suspects
the match-making propensity of the

"I know," she said, "Nan is Just that
way. 'Who else Is coining?' she will
nsk me defiantly."
The lire crackled on, Daisy slipped
over to tho friendly arm of her Husband's-
chair and still sat gazing moll
tatlvely Into the rosy depths.
"Don," she said at Inst, "while we

"Good Idea," Don heartily agreed.
"Hob will enjoy looking nfter your
fernery, Daisy; you know he Is nn ad
mirer of yours."
Hob was well pleased to oblige his
friends. Thy thought of nn uninter
rupted evening among Donald's whII
chosen hooks was Inviting. He tlriod
the latchkey which his friend had
bestowed upon lihn nnd entered the
deserted vestibule. All wns In i dull

As he switched on the llvlng-iooni
lights lie saw a dish of polished red
apples on a table beside the iireshle
chair. Several new pieces seemed
plnced for his selection on the grand
He hastily shut oft the myriad lights
as he dropped to the hearth rug,
leaving the golden shaded lamp alone
for his use. And ns Hob bent to build
tho fire he discarded his coat. From a
rear room came croonlngly the chirp
of n bird. Hob arose. Don had not
mentioned the added care of n bird,
and here he, Hob, had allowed two
days to elapse before visiting Ida
friends' home after their departure.
Tho tiny creature might be suffering
now for want of food. Softly, on the,
thick rugs, Hob made his way in the
direction of the bird's murmurlngs.
Thy cage hung In u high kitchen win

of the white kitchen fell upon her

though sensing his presence, the girl

Into Hob's outstretched nrms.
It seumed that ho had anticipated
that fall from the moment the girl
turned her white face toward hlin. A
quick stride found him at the side of
the high stool. It took him some time,
however, to realize that tho young
woman's alarm was occasioned by his

locked against Intruders. For a mo

thnt he had mistakenly entered the

fuced young woman found voice.
"I don't know," she said, "whnt you
are doing here." She surveyed Hob's
contless figure. "Hut if you are a

"Burglar 1" Hob gasped. He realized
that the young woman wns endeavor
