CHAPTER V "THE CRISIS."
In the first daze of awakening Mar
garet was conscious of the luxurious
bed. After the dubious sheets and
... grayish blanket of Mrs. Devlin's hall
room, the frelsh linen seemed an un-
r wonted luxury.
With thrilled appraisement her
glance swept the expensively fur-
msned room. I he only discordant
note was her own shabby trunk,
which stood with dejected humility
". against the satin-striped wall.
I For so long she had recoiled from
8 ' repugnant surroundings that now as
Ij ' She bathed and dressed she gave her-
self up to the almost forgotten joy ot
sheer physical comfort.
But beneath her grateful relaxation
yas the disquieting thought of her
indebtedness to Kennedy. In spite
of his insistence that she consider it
only as a loan, Margaret felt keenly
Determining to keep her expenses
as low as possible, instead of having
breakfast in the high-priced restaur
ant, she 'went out to a nfoderate lunch
room in the next block.
Passing a news stand, she paused
to 1 uy a copy of "Standford's Maga
zine." Turning to the table of con
tents, her o.n name leaped up at her.
'"His Wife and the Other Woman,'
For several i..oments she stood en
thralled, while the hurrying crowd el
bowed by. She had not even known
of the story's acceptance.
She would go at once to the office
of the magazine. She would see the
editor. Possibly it would mean an
order for another story.
At 3 o'clock that afternoon, with
shrinking self-consciousness, in spite
of the fortifying magazine in her
hand, Margaret gave her card to the
office boy who guarded the editorial
She had pictured Frank Norwood,
the editor, as cold and unapproach
able, but the tall youngish man who
greeted her was graciously cordial.
He seemed much interested in Her
story and spoke of a series. Then he
explained that he was just starting to
Riverdale his car was waiting. If
she would drive out with him they
could talk on the way and she could
return on the 5:10-
Knowing that most writers would
be overjoyed at such a chance for an
interview, after a moment's hesita
tion, Margaret consented.
With characteristic energy Nor
wood hurried her down to his car,
and they t were soon speeding out
through the city.
Briefly he outlined the series he had
in mind. It was to be "The Woman
".Alone" struggling for her living in a
great city. The theme was hackneyed,
but he was convinced she could give
to it a new angle.
Her story in the current number
had touched on these lines. The
scene in the cheap boarding house
and the dingy hall room had been re-
markedly vivid. He ielt she knew
and could write of this life.
It was barely 4 when they reached
Riverdale, and Norwood insisted on
her calling with him at a friend's
houseboat. It was not until they were
walking down the graveled bank that
he mentioned casually, "It belongs

-rjjtcd in your story. Oh, there

Before Margaret could frame her
f '. dismay into a protest, he was lead
I ing the way up the gang plank, and
J " she hd no choice but to follow. .
P - Mary, having no reason to think
jf that her husband had seen Miss
Warner since the evenings she
J - worked for him, greeted her graci
i ' ously.
I Desperately Margaret strove to
T conceal her embarrassment. Her
J cojor flamed deeper as Kennedy ap
i peared. She saw his start of sur-
prise, then his quick control as he
greeted her formally.
After that one swift glance, she did
1 not look toward him, but she was
quiveringly conscious of his every
t. word and movement.
i Shinking back to the deep wicker
I chair, her drooping hat brim shading
I her face, Margaret's silence seemed
i only a natural modesty at Norwood's
3 glowing praise of her work.

when her return on that train was
mentioned. "Why that's been taken

Dinner, served on the veranda-like
deck under the glowing Japanese
lanterns, was to Margaret a trying or
deal, sitting beside Kennedy she felt
his protecting efforts to make the
situation less awkward.
In spite of her embarrassment she
was conscious of th thrill that al
ways came with his presence. Hav
ing seen him only in business suits,
she was struck anew with his careless
strength which the white flannels
seemed to emphasize.
When they finally arose from the
table Mary suggested that perhaps
Miss WaVner would like to see
through the boat. Though dreading
to be alone with her, Margaret was
torced to acquiesce.
"This is the living room." as they
iwent down the steps. "Mr. Ken
nedy's room is on that side and
this' is mine."
"Yes, it's comfortable," to Mar
garet's murmured, admiring com
ment. "But its' very lonely. I never
realized it when Mr. Kennedy stayed

had been standing by the window

"Perhaps I imagine it," confusedly.

Railroads Report Crop
Conditions as Excellent
With light rains at numerous points
throughout Nebraska Friday night
and with temperatures ranging from
45 to 60 degrees above zero, crops
continue to make good growth, is
the report coining to the railroads.
The crop report of .the Northwest
ern for the week ending Friday night
and covering the Nebraska lines indi
cates that crops are in excellent con
dition, though there is need of warm
er weather to hasten the corn along.
However, reports from more than 1U0
stations carry the idea none of the
corn has suffered on account of the
continued cool weather.
Ever, where the farmers are in their
fields and cultivation during the week
progressed rapidly. As a rule the
fields are pretty free from weeds.
Small grain is doing well, 1 with
wheat and j oats beginning to head.
The straw is long, strong and .every
thing points to a large yield.
The first cutting of alfalfa is in the
stack and on some of the meadows
wild hay is being put up. It is said

American War Medals
By Frederic J. Haakin
Washington, June 14. Doubtless
one result of the expeditionary force
to Europe will be the creation of a
new medal of honor to be worn by
those who see honorable service in
the campaign. Practically every war
in which the United States has had a
part, since the civil war, has been
commemorated by a medal, so that
these decorations form a sort of
anthology of our history in arms.
All governments recognize the
emotional value of the military dec
oration. Love and money are not
more powerful motives to ettort than
distinction. As George Moore cynical
ly states the matter, we are all per
forming dogs trying to astonish each
other with our tricks, or, if you prefer
to state it that wav.. each of us
strongly desires the approbation of
Ins fellows. Wflerefore the giving of
medals is an artistic and effective way
of rewarding merit and stimulating
The decorations which may be won
in the service of the United States are
of two general classes. In the first
place there is that long list of medals
which have been struck out in ac
cordance with acts of congress to
commemorate' particular wars or1
campaigns, and are generally given to
all men who have an honorable part
in such campaigns, the other class is
represented by the medals given for
meritorious service, for heroism and
for marksmanship. These latter, in
the case of enlisted men, carry with
them a substantial increase in pay as
long as the deroration is held.
The marksmanship decorations are
of special interest just now, because
they have to do with a phase of war
in which American troops have al
ways been superior. Americans have
always been good marksmen because
they have always been a nation of
hunters, and in nearly all of our fight
ing this has bea our most marked
superiority. Withinthe last few de
cades, however, such, a large propor
tion of our population has been
crowded into cities that the percent
age of men who have handled arms
must be much smaller than it was
fifty or even twenty-five years ago.
Yet the number of these men is still
surprisingly large. The love of the
open 'field and the smell of gun
powder is strong in our blood and not
easily downed Thus in 1915 some
five million hunting licenses were
taken out in the United States. And
the numerous rifle ciubs that have
been organized in the last few years
have added greatly to the number of
those who knew, to some extent, how
i The importance of this knowledge
can hardly be overestimated. Marks
manship is the one part of being a
soldier which cannot possibly be im
parted in six months. Learning to
shoot even passably well is a matter
of years of practice, while to become
a first-class shot requires not only
years, but a good deal of aptitude.
Furthermore, experience in the hunt
ing field cannot fail to be of much
greater value thaa any amount of
target practice. Hitting a running
deer is a very different proposition
fom plugging a black bull's-eye on a
white background with the aid of a
wind gauge, a note book, and an exact
knoweldge of the distance. It may
reasonably be supposed that hitting a
charging German has somewhat the
same difference from target practice.
And, although artillery and the ma
chine gun have robbed the rifle of a
large part of its importance, trenches
are still won and lost by the quality
of markmanship in the opposing
The superiority of Canadians as
soldiers seems to be generally con
ceded, and it. can scarcely be doubted
that a good part of this superiority is
due to the fact that almost every
Canadian of military age has had
some experience with rifles. Gather a
hundred small-town raus$d or ranch
raised westerners, who hunt every fall
as a matter of course, and compare
them with a hundred men of like age
and income gathered at random from
desks and stores in a big city. The
westerners will not only be able to
outshoot the city men, on an average,
about ten to one, but they will have
steadier nerves, know how to take
care of themselves in the open, and to
endure hardship. In this day when so
many things from planting a potato
in the backyard to eating corn meal
are being commended as expressions
of patriotism, something oughV.to be
said for the rhap who occasionally
gets away from the manifold and
pampering comforts of civilized life,
to test his legs by a long, hard hike
in the winter woods and train his
eyes by trying to hit some fleet Avild

There is one medal conferred by
the government through act of con
gress which may be won by a civilian
as well as a soldier. It is given to
those who have risked their own lives
to save the lives of others.
These are the standing medals,
which mav be won at anv time. All
of the other decorations which you
see upon the breasts ot military men,
commemorate special campaigns or
wars. The first of these in order of
importance today, is the medal of
honor which was authorized by con
gress in 1861 and was given to men
who saw meritorious service in the
civil war. Next comes the Dewey
medal, commemorating the battle of
Manila bay, and then the Sampson
medal, worn by men who took part in
other naval engagements of the Span
ish war, and having the head of Samp.
son for its medallion. 1 here is also
a Spanish war medal which is con
ferred upon all men of the navy or
marine corps who saw service in any
battle of the Spanish-American war.
Another medal is worn by all men
who saw honorable service afloat or
ashore during the struggle to pacify
the Philippines The Boxer rebellion
of China is commemorated by another
medal worn by the American marines
who took part in the struggle, and by
the members of the relief expedition
who were sent later. The second in
tervention in Cuba also has its medal,
worn by all men who took an honor
able part therein. The little known
campaign of our marines in Nicaragua
during 1911 aid 1912 is also remem
bered by a medal known as the
Nicaraguan campaign medal. Thus
it will be seen that no wars and very
few brushes hive been overlooked. It
is time for one of our national legis
lators to rise in his place and offer a
resolution creating, the "Liberty
Medal of 1917."
At this point a thought occurs
which will not down. Why not ex
tend this medal idea to the ranks of
the civilians? We are told that the
man who stays at home and does his
bit is just as important as the one
that carries the gun. Now since this
home and office patriot cannot wear
a uniform, why not give him a medal
for honorable service for example a
home garden campaign medal for the
man who raises the biggest radish on
a city lot.

VAUDEVILLE OFFERING AT
EMPRESS THIS WEEK.

CH Ae impress
Weber and Redford are presenting
their burlesque oddity on the Em
press srrer-n stage for the first time
today. The name of it is "On Their
Golf Links" and it develops the funny
situations of the popular pastime. The
two Ovandos are a young man and
woman whose stag appearance gives
an audience the feeling they are look
ing at two children of unusual beauty
and accomplishments. This in part is
true, though they are not children,
yet they have all the fervor of such
while presenting their number. As
xylophonists the Ovandos are in a
class by themselves. Never was such
stirring and tuneful music beaten out
of xylophones as this pair of artists
demonstrate. Mirth and melody are
presented .by Rome and Wager, and
the show is closed by Wille brothers,
masters of the art of equilibrism.
Owing to the ever increasing ex
pense of labor, film, war tax, etc., a
slight increase of 5 cents on each
ticket becomes effective starting to
day to continue until further notice.
The Empress management is now of
fering a $.5,000 show every week and
it has been found impossible to con
tinue the 10 and 20 cents any longer.
This small increase will allow the
management to keep on improving
the quality of the sjiows.

stranger with the motion picture men

at this time and upon being promoted
to Minneapolis, which is the third
largest office in the United States for
the Vitagraph company, he installed
Mr. Getzler in his place on account
the exceptional record he made as a

Hero Goes Down and Out,
Then Does Great Comeback
Robert Warwick and Gail Kane, th
popular film stars, are seen together
in "The False Friend," the new
World-Picture Brady-Made which
will be the attraction Thursday, Fri.
day and Saturday at the Sun theater,
The drama in which these two accom
plished screen players are seen ia a
glowing romance in which the hero
loses his sweetheart, his standing in
the world and his life's hope through
I he villainy of a false friend. He be
comes down and out. He hits the
lowest levels of humanity. And then
his inherent manliness and stamina
assert themselves and he rises to i
new self-confidence and a new deter
mination. Robert Warwick is con
vincing in this role. Miss Kane in
the role of his sweetheart is winsome
and effective. All the other members
of the company are splendidly cast.
All in all this is a splendid attraction.
Here's One With Neither
Crime Nor Villainy in It
"The Little Orphan" will be the
Bluebird photoplay to be presented at
the Hipp theater today and Monday,
with Ella Hall the star, supported by
a company of Bluebird's usual careful
selection. There will then be told an
engaging story, replete with touches
of sentiment and bright in homely
scenes and true-to-life incidents. Miss
Hall will be seen in one of her favor
ite roles a little girl who blossoms
into an attractive womanhood, and
Tunis complete happiness at the cli
max of her struggles. I here is nei
ther crime nor villainy during the
progress of the little girl's journey to
contentment, and "The Little Or
phan" will be an effective demon
stration of Bluebird's purpose to
make "the play the thing' always and
have it good and wholesome.

That the public will patronize re
