It is enoueh and plenty when liven

The protracted hot weatner tms
summer has been very hard on the
babies and young children of the

means of getting cool, pure milk for
them. But the contributers to The

these children are being brought

The situation on grain shipment
has temporarily eased up, according
to officials of the railroacSs carrying
Nebraska wheat to market. According
to John A. Munroe. vice president of
the Union Pacific, this may be due
in part to the bullish sentiments of
many of the farmers who are holding
their grain in hope of a continuing
rise in price. "When you see a
farmer that is a bull on the grain
market no other bull can compare
with him," said Mr. Munroe. "We
are bringing in lots of grain for the
Omaha elevators and they are in bet
ter shape than ever before to handle
the grain quickly, unloading the cars
and allowing us to return them for
another cargo "
According to ueneral Manager
Frank Walters of the Northwestern,
his road loaded 235 cars of grain in
Nebraska Wenesday, and has cars
enough to supply demand at present.
Some cars are being brought down
from Dakota fields, owing to the de
creased yield in the northern states
where the crop has been seriously
injured by black rust and heat dam
age. Much of the Nebraska wheat is
being bought for the export market,
and Mr. Walters estimates that half is
going to the Atlantic ports for ship
ment to Europe.
Mix With New Wheat.
Kansas wheat is moving in heavy
volume, but many shipments are be
ing held on the chance ot a rise in
price. r. Hennessey, commercial
agent ot the Kock island, says that
his road is again able to supply cars
where they are needed. He also says
that many of the elevator men are
making a very good thing out of the
old wheat stored in their elevators.
The crop last year was not of first
grade quality, and by mixing it with
the exceptionally heavy high grade
crop which Nebraska raised this
year they are able to raise the grade
of the mixture and get a good profit
on what they have held.

left the man in a cloud of dust," al

hold-up started after the car and pur
sued it tor several rods.

of some kind of plant that would be

that would succeed here. On the

"Well, it's really awfully amusing,"
said Inez, and Hope could hear het
laughing softly. "I met him last sum
mer at the Abernethy's. They had a
house party, you know, at their camp
on Lake Placid. One afternoon Jarvis
and I started to climb Whiteface
mountain, but we lost our way in the
woods, and, to make matters worse,
a terrible storm came up. Fortunately
we found a deserted cabin .... and
there we soent the night. Jarvis be
haved beautifully . . . . he never slept
a wink, but kept guard all night,
thouph we had to remain there till
morning. There were only two rooms
in the nlace. I slept on the bed in
one of them and he insisted on sitting
up m the other, ihe next morn
ing we managed to find the trail again
and made our way back to the Aber-
nethy s, who were worried to deatn
about us. I knew perfectly well how
they would all raise their eyebrows
if we told them that we had spent the
night together in a deserted cabin, so
I persuaded Jarvis that he had better
tell them that we had spent the night
together with the Lees, who have a
camp on the lake. A few. days later
the camp party broke up without any
one suspecting anything. Jarvis was
ordered to the Pacific coast and I
never expected to see him again. But
last month when I was visiting Lucille
Allen in Washington, I sat at dinner
one night next to a very welt known
lawyer. He had had more champagne
than was good for him and he was
very atlkative and confidential. In the
course of our conversation something
was said about Jarvis and the lawyer
"That young man is going to be one
of the richest officers in the navy one
of these days."
"'Nonsense, I answered. 'I happen
to know that he hasn't anything ex

" 'And I happen to know,' said the
lawyer, 'that he it the sole heir of

steel magnate,' I asked.
" 'The same,' said he. 'He it Jarvis
"'How do you know all this' I
"'I know it,' he replied, 'because
we are Theodore Wiekham't attorn

must beg of you, Miss Machin, not to
repeat what I have just told you. I'm
afraid I have talked too muck'
" 'Don't worry I answered. 'I shall
not repeat it.'
"But that set me thinking. Papa
had had some serious reverses in
Wall, street and mamma and I had
been forced to economize. We had
had to give up the cottage at Bar
Harbour and one of the motora and
everything was looking pretty blue.
" 'Why not marry Jarvis Hope? I
said to myself. 'Hes good looking
and goes in good society, and he
has a brilliant future ahead of him.
And he's going to be immensely rich
very soon, for his uncle it past 80 and
in miserable health.'"
"But how did he happen to propose
to you?" queried Miss Langham,
"He didn't," Inez confessed, with a
shade of embarrassment. "I proposed
"What I" exclaimed her visitor in
credulously. "Well, not that, exactly," said Inez,
laughing, "but I wrote him a letter
saying that my friends had learned
that we had spent the night together
in the cabin, that I was facing social
ostracism, and that he owed it to me
to put an end to the gossip by coming
east and marrying me."
"You didn't. You're joking, Inez."
Miss Langham ejaculated in shocked
surprise. "You couldn't do such a
