"Pon't that beat the dickens!" he
snorted, "who is It?"
"Philip Lan6don." said Follnck,
grimly, and again Daniels' eyes naftr
rowed shrewdly, for It was common
gossip that these two men, so striking
a contrast in type and character, were
rivals for the favor of the lovely young
".Maybe Hss rase left word for him
to get in." he said, with a sly smile;
and the hot blood rushed to Pollock's
"If I thought that" he muttered, tak
ing a quick step forward. But Daniels
caught at bis sleeve.
"I was only kidding. tJon't be a fool,"
he said, soothingly. "Rehearsal la about
over anyhow, and a five-minute talk

Mary. Lt 'em alone. I guess he'H look
like a two spot to her when you tell her
that little story of yours tonight eh?"
Ho chuckled, though his eyes were full
of a strange anxiety, and his touch on
Pollock's sleeve was by no means light.
The latter turned with a shrug.
"I guess you're right," h admitted.
"Come on, let's go get that drink."
At the door, however, he glanced back
over his shoulder and set his teetb

"Knough to realize how fine you are
as Nora." he said with sudden gravity,
and she smiled up at him with a flush
of pleasure at the words as she dropped
wearily into the chair of the garish
throne that held the center of the stage.
"I'm glad you like it." she ssid simply,
adding with a quiver In her soft volco,
"Oh, Phil, Phil. I'm so happy-to thln'rf
Its-it's come at last this wonderful
dream men call success!"
"I'm happy, too, my dear," he said,
gently, sitting down on the edge of the
throne's dais to tho dismay of the busy
scene-shifters. "I wish you the greatct-t
triumph you could desire, and I know
you deserve It"
"But you don't sound happy." she per
sisted, her woman's Int'itlon uppermost.
For an Instant bis eyes met hers.

Mary's fingertips rested en his shoulder

One member absent and a tie vote
of the ait attending a regular sos
tion of tbo city council presents an
unusual situation In the rase of a
retail liquor application of Isaac
Crossman, 52 4 North Sixteenth
J street. It requires at least four
votes of the council to grant a pa
loon license. In this Instance the
license was not granted and the
mooted question Is, does the tie vote
constitute a legal rejection of the
application, or is the matter still be
fore the council, subject to reconsid
eration at some fu'.ure date? Kor
the present, at least, the effect Is
that the saloon cannot be reopened.
Commissioner Kugel will be out of
the city for three weeks and It Is not
l.nown how he would vote on this
proposition. Ills return may be tbo
occasion for bringing the matter be
fore the council again.
Maoaarer I.aat Tear.
Monday afternoon the rouncil heard
e idenre in connection with a protest
filed by Fannie Marksbury, who also filed
a protest against the application of I sartor
Goldstein who had this saloon last year
and whose renewal was rejected by the
rouncil two weeks ago. Grossman Is a
brother-in-law ef Goldstein and was man
ager of the saloon last year.
Commissioners Hummel. Jardlne and
Prexel voted to refuse the license this
year and also voted to sustain the protest.
Mayor Dahlman and Commissioners But
ler and Wlthnell voted to grant the
license and against tho protest.
Mr. Hummel was particularly opposed
to this mloon which Is located near his
home. His contention Is that there are
too many saloons on North Sixteenth
" One can stand on any Intersection of
North Sixteenth street and see seven
saloons," stated Mr. Hummel.

A clearing house for second-hand auto
mobiles Is an aim and deelro of the
Omaha 1 Automobile Show association,
which consists of nearly all of the motor
dealers In Omaha.
The show association met at the Com
mercial club at noon and unanimously
decided it would be a good plan to or
ganize ejeh a clearing house, obtain a
building solely for this purpose and In
the future turn over all eecond-hand cars
to the clearing house for t-ale. Thus no
dealer would sell any second-hand cars
at all, but would turn over all such
stock to the clearing house.
It was decided to hold another meeting
of the association Friday when a alto
fo a building for the clearing house
would be chosen and definite plans of
