In "Drewltt'a Dream," W. L. Aldon has
Written a story, full of action and Incident
from first to last. The opening scenes,
.which offer thrilling pictures of adventure
tin war time, Involve the reader In a mystery
ithat piques his curiosity throughout the
. chapters of accidents and adventures by
' sea and land that follow. There are some
most companionable characters in this en
tertaining tale, notably an American multi
millionaire, whose careei has not quenched
delightful Klft of humor. Mr. Alden'a
novel Is not written to point a moral, and
no one who begins It will put It aside until
flnhhed, A love story begins on almost
the very first page and grows In Interest
until the last when "she put both her
hands In bis and repeated softly and alowly.
It shall be forever.' " Printed by D. Ap
pleton & Company.
"Mary Garvin" by Fred Lewis Pattee, la
pleasing and quiet romance of back coun
try folks, with characters that are natural
nd lovable. We grow Interested In and
become familiar with the odd back-porch
phlloiophere, who gather In the cross-roads
. store and the blacksmith shop. The pages
are full of quaint humor and droll Inci
dents. Mary Garvin, a robust, light-hearted
farmer's daughter, a refreshing and cheer
ful nature, who had felt no career of life,
became engaged to the village blacksmith's
son, who, though Just admitted to the bar
nd became a member of a law firm In Con-
. crd. Is spending tho summer at home In his
father's shop. .The coming of the summer
boarder Into their m(rtst Mies Bradley
draws the attention of the blacksmith's
aon, aa well as causing a desire In the
entire community to gain an education.
Mary Oarvln, while rowing a boat on
evening on the lake, realties aa she listens
to hsr lover and Mies Bradley In conver
sation, her need of a better education to
become hla equal and decldea to go to Bos
ton and study music. . Her desire Is accom
plished after a series of difficulties are
overcome by the financial assistance of
their farmhand, Joel-Green, who usually
occupies the center of the stage when he
arrives with his laughable stories, and
pungent philosophy. The story closes with
n old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner at
the home of the Oarvln's and seated at the
table are Mary and lier lover, happy and
lontented, thankful "that they "know each
at her now.".. Published by Thomas Y. Crow

of Health nnd Rove
At Its meeting yesterday the Board
of County Commissioners decided to give
Ed J. Brennan a warrant for half the
amount due him for the construction of the
South Omaha emergency hospital; to give
the South Omaha Board of Health a war
rant for the other half; to give the Douglas
County Agricultural society no warrant at
all; to give the finance committee power to
do what it pleases In collecting" realty tax;
and finally, to give Connolly and O'KeetTe
opportunity to fight out. in committee of

and Colonel John B. Watklns ot the South
Omaha Board of Health waa also there to
aay things. Watklna bad attached bills for
material to the documents In evidence and
Brennan took exception to thla, declaring
that he needed no guardian mixing In his
ffalrs. After considerable talk of an acri
monious nature the board pushed the ver
bal combatants Into their respective cor
ners and agreed to give Brennan a warrant
for $469.40 and the South Omaha board one
for 1488, the latter to pay Brennan this

Chairman Ostrom of the committee of
the whole reported adversely on the appli
cation of John Armour as president and
O. W. Hervey as secretary of the Douglas
County Agricultural society for an appro
priation from the county to assist In hold
ing another fair In 1902. The committee
report, which was unanimously adopted,
reads In part: "We have given the matter
careful consideration and believe that the
holding ot the county fair In Douglas
county la not of any special Interest to
the agriculturists at large and that the
cost of maintaining the same Is greatly In
excess of the benefits derived therefrom.
The request of the petitioners Is rejected
and no appropriation to be made for the
purposea of an agricultural exhibit In
Douglas county In 1902."
