"I'm afraid Paredes has planned
a thorough evening," he said, "for
which he'll want you to pay. Don't
be angry, Bobby. The situation is
serious enough to excuse facts. You
must go to the Cedars tonight. Do
you understand? You must go, in
spite of Paredts, in spite of every
thing." '
"Peace until train time," Bobby
He caught his breath.
"There they are. Carlos has kept
his word. See her, Hartley. She's
glorious. .
A young woman accompanied thi
Pahamanian as he came back
through the halL She appeared more
foreign than her guide the Spanish
of Spain rather than of South Amer
ica. Her clothing, was as unusual
and striking as her beauty, yet one
ielt there was more than either to
attract all the glances in this room,
to set people whispering as she
passed. Clearly she knew her no
toriety was no little thing. Pride
filled her eyes.
Paredes had first introduced her
to Bobby a month or more ago. He
had seen her a number of times
since in her dressing room at the
theater where she was featured, or
at crowded luncheons in her apart
ment. At such moments she had
managed to be exceptionally nice to
him. Bobby, however, had answer
ed merely to the glamour of her
fame, to the magnetic response her
beauty always brought in places
like this.
"Paredes," Graham muttered,
"will have a powerful ally. You
won t fail me, iJobby You will go?
Bobby scarcely heard. He hurried
forward and welcomed the woman.
She tapped his arm with her fan.
"Leetle Bobby!" she lisped. "I
haven't seen very much of you late
ly. So whien Carlos proposed you
see 1 don t dance until late. Who is
that behind you? Mr. Graham, is
it not? He would, maybe, not re
member me. I danced at a dinner
where you were one night, at Mr.
Ward's. Even lawyers, I find, take
enjoyment in my dancing."
"I remember," Graham said. "It
is very pleasant we are to dine to
gether." He continued tactlessly;
"But, as I've explained to Mr. Pare
des, we must hurry. Bobby and I
have an early engagement."
Her head went up. '
"An early engagement! I do not
often dine in public."
"An unavoidable thing," Graham
explained. "Bobby will tell you."
Bobby nodded.
"It's a nuisance, particularly when
you're so condescending. Maria."
She shrugged her shoulders. With
Bobby she entered the dining-room
atthe heels of Paredes and Graham.
T'aredes had foreseen everything.
There were flowers on the table. The
dinner had been ordered. Immedi
ately the waiter brought cocktails.
Graham glanced at Bobby warn
ingly He wouldn't, as an example
Bobby appreciated, touch his own
Maria held hers up to the light.
"Pretty yellow things'! I never
drink them."
She smiled dreamily at Bobbys
"But seel I shall place this to my
lips in order that you may make
pretty speeches, and maybe tell me
it is the most divine aperitif you
have ever drunk."
She passed the glass to him, and
Bobby, avoiding Graham's eyes,
wondering whj she was so gracious,
emptied it. And afterward fre
quently she reminded him of his
wine by going through - the same
elaborate formula. Probably because
of that, as much as anything else,
constraint grasped the little com
pany tighter. Graham couldn't hide
his anxiety. Paredes mocked it with
sneering phrases which he turned
most carefully. Before the meal
was half finished Graham glanced at
his watch.
"We've just time for the 8:30," he
whispered to Bobby, "if we pick up
a taxi."
Maria had heard. She pouted.
"There is no engagement," she
lisped, "as sacred as a dinner, no
entanglement -except marriage that
cannot be easily broken. Perhaps
I have displeased you, Mr. Graham.
Perhaps you fancy I excite unpleas
ant comment. It is unjust. I assure
you my reputation is above re
proach" her dark eyes twinkled
"certainly in New York."
"It isn't that," Graham answered.
"We must go. It's not to be
She turned tempestuously.
"Am I to be humiliated so? Car
los! Why did you bring me? Is
all the world to see my companions
leave in the midst of a dinner as if
I were plague-touched1 Is Bobby
not capable of choosing his own
"You are thoroughly justified,
Maria," Paredes said in his expres
sionless tones. "Bobby, however,
has said very little about this en
gagement. I did not know, Mr.
Graham, that you were the arbiter
of Bobby's actions. In a way I
must resent your implication that
he is no longer capable of caring
for himself.
Graham accepted the challenge.
He leaned across the table, speaking
directly to Bobby, ignoring the
"You've not forgotten what I toli
you. Will you come while there's
time? You must see. I can't re
main here any longer.
Bobby, hating warfare in his pres
ent mood, sought to temporize.
"It's all right, Hartley. Don't
Worry. I'ft catch a later train."
Maria relaxed.
, "Ah! Bobby still chooses for him
self." , "I'll have enough rumpus," Bobby
muttered, "when I get to the Cedars.
Don't grudge me a little peace here."
Graham rose. His voice was dis
couraged. "I'm sorry. I'll hope, Bobby."
Without a word to the others he
walked out of the room.
The Boped Drink.
So far, when Bobby tried after
ward to recall the details of the
evening, everything was perfectly
distinct in his memory. The re
mainder of the meal, made uncom
fortable by Maria's sullenness and
Parede's sneers, his attempt to re
capture the earlier gayety of the
eveningxby continuing to drink the
wine, his determination to go later
to the Cedars In spite of Graham's
: t "...
doubt of all these things no par
ticular lacked. He remembered pay
Mig the check, as he usually did
when he dined with raredes. He
recalled studying the time-table and
finding that he had just missed an
other train.
Maria's spirits rose then. He was
persuaded to accompany her and
Paredes to the music hall. In her
dressing-room, while she was on
the stage, he played with the boxes
of make-up, splashing the mirror
with various colors while Paredes
sat silently watching.
The alteration, he was sure, came
a little later in the cafe at a table
close to the dancing floor. Maria
had insisted that Paredes and 1 e
should wait there while she changed.
"But," he had protested, "I have
missed too, many trains.
She had demanded his time-table,
scanning the columns of close
"There is one," she had said, "at
12:15 time for a little something in
the cafe, and who knows? U you
are agreeable I might forgive every
thing and dance with you once,
Bobby, on the public fbor."
So he cat for some time, expect
ant, with Paredes, watching the
boisterous dancers, listening to the
violent music, sipping absent-mindedly
at his glass. He wondered why
Paredes had grown so quiet.
"I musn't miss that 12:15," he
said. "You know, Carlos, you
weren't quite fair to Hartley. He's
a splendid fellow. Roomed with me
at college, played on same team, and
all that. Only wanted me to do
the right thing. Must say it was
the right thing. I won't miss that
"Graham," raredes sneered, "is a
wonderful type Apollo in the flesh
and Billy Sunday in the conscience."
Then, as Bobby started? to pro
test, Maria entered, more dazzling
than at dinner; and the dancers
swayed less boisterously, the chatter
at the tables subsided, the orchestra
seemed to hesitate as a sort of
A man Bobby had never seen be
fore followed her to the table. His
middle-aged figure was loudly
clothed. His face was coarse and
clean shaven. He acknowledged the
introductions sullenly.
"I've only a minute," Bobby said
to Maria.
He continued, however, to raise
his glass indifferently to his lips.
All at once his glass shook. Maria's
dark and sparkling face become
blurred. He could no longer define
the features of the stranger. He
had never before experienced any
thing of the kind. He tried to ac
count for it. but his mind became
"Maria t" he hurst out. "Why are
you looking at me like that?"
Her contralto laugh rippled.
"Bo"bbv looks so funny I Carlos!
Leetle Bobby looks so queer! What
is the matter with him?"
Bobbv's anger was lost in the in
creased confusion of his senses, but
through that mental turmoil tore
the thought of Graham and his in-
(ention of going to the Cedars. With
shaking fingers he dragged out his
watch. He couldn t read the dial.
He braced , his hands against the
table thrust back his chair and arose.
The room tumbled about him. Be
fore his eyes the dancers made long
nebulous bands of color in which
nothing had form or coherence. In
stinctively he felt he hadn't dined
recklessly enough to account for
these amazing symptoms. He was
suddenly afraid.
"Carlos!" he whispered.

No Orders to Release
Soldiers at Fort Omaha
Officials at Fort Omaha an
nounced Monday that they, have re
ceived no instructions to release sol
diers and that, as far as they know,
the status of the men stationed there
has not been changed by the sign
ing of the armistice and the ending
of hostilities.
Officers at the fort have been
swamped by appeals from parents
and friends of the soldiers asking for
release and they are anxious to ex
plain that they have not yet been
given authority to demobilize any
of their companies.
Relatives are urged to exercise
patience and officers at the fort give
assurance that they will gladly do
their part in releasing the soldiers
when they receive authority to do so
but at present they are unable to do
so and appeals to them are useless.

Athens, Greece, Nov. 18. Reports
of a change of the regime in Bul

republic there have been received
here, but official confirmation is

Unable to 'Agree Whether
Evangelical Church Heads
Only Are Eligible to
Union Membership.
The Omaha Church federation
at its annual meeting Monday night
argued at considerable length the
proposed new constitution, referred
it back to the commiteee for further
consideration, and then listened to
stirring adresses which will be an
inspiration to the affiliated
churches during the coming months.
The discussion over the constitu
tion arose when an amendment was
proposed to insert the word "evan
gelical before the word church
m the clause specifying what de
nominations are eligible to mem
bership. The discussion grow some
what heated at times, and the gath
ering got into a parliamentary
tangle that would have required a
Joe Cannon to unwind.
Two camps settled down for a
campaign talk on one side, those
who insisted upon a strict constitu
tional ruling, and on the other those
who contended that the spirit of the
times is such that there is no place
in a city church federation for em
phasis upon points of doctrine so
long as there is a common basis
upon which to build, and a common
work which can be done looking to
helpfulness of the community.
Motion to Refer Back Carries.
No serious acrimony developed,
and while there was considerable
objection on the part of the strict
constructionists the motion to re
fer back to the committee, made by
Dean Ringer, finally prevailed.
This motion also made it impossi
ble to adopt finally the report of the
nominating committee, which was
accepted and referred to a future
meeting for consideration.
In spite of the dispute over the
constitution the meeting was a
large gathering of the Christian
forces of the community, heartily de
oted to the work of making the
church a real force for righteous
ness in the city. The banquet which
preceded the business meeting was
handsomely served by the women
of the First Presbyterian church,
and greatly enjoyed by the 300 or so
who partook of it.
The music furnished by the Y. M.
C. A. quartet, especially the Hoov
erizing selection furnished by Sec
retary Mayer, was delightful. The
social hour which followed the in
spiring addresses of Dean Ringer
and Secretary Mayer, and which
was intended to serve as an intro
duction of Mr. Mayer to the church
people of the city was a most en
joyable social affair.
May Order Lid on
To Fight Influenza;
Disease Spreading
"There are now more flu cases in
Council Bluffs and the situation is
more serious than it has ever been,"
said Mayor Zurmuehlen at a meet
ing of the Board of Health last
night, after Alderman Tyson had
brought up the question of re-establishing
the general quarantine for
at least a week.
It was decided to have a special
meeting Wednesday morning at 9
o'clock, and to instruct Dr. Bower to
bring in a report of the situation. If
the situation shows no improvement
and Dr. Bower favors re-establishment
of the quarantine, the order will
probably be made. The statement
was made that the disease had now
assumed its most malignant form.

work, and that is saying a lot, tor
it certainly was proclaimed some
show by the press agent. However,
he was right, as everybody who has
seen it agrees. The Dolly sisters
and Harry Fox are a show in them
selves, but the big company and the
chorus make it doubly worth while.
People & Greenwald's latest musi
cal success, "The Revue de Luxe," is
the headline attraction at the Em
press this first half. The members
of the company play violin solos,
banjo duets, piano overtures and
harmony ensembles.

accompanied by eight reels of pic
tures showing naval activities.
For society night there was a
heavy attendance last evening at the
Orpheum. I he top line scenic
sensation, "The Forest Fire," reg

Clarke, a farceur of wide populari

The combination of the blonde
beauty, grace and personal charm
of Florence Mills, and Abe Reyn
olds' highly developed ability as a
comedian form the bulwark of the
great success enjoyed by Max
Spiegel's "Merry Rounders" at the

production has been on a mos. lav
ish scale facts clearly evident.
May Yokes, who plays the role of
the maid from Sioux Lity in She
Took a Chance," played the same

S. A. T. C. of Bellevue Raises
$500 for United War Fund
The boys of the Bellevue' S. A
T. C. are singing "the war is over"
instead of "we're going over" in a
pathetic way. The issuing of new
rifles added a little touch of interest
and one optimist was overheard to
say, "Oh well perhaps there will be
another war.
They backed up the. "Y" drive,
however, with an unbroken morale.
At a song rally in the chapel they
collected enough to make Bellevue's
contribution over $500. The girls
had their own little rally and made
up a sum of $125. Acting Presi
dent Baskerville drew a vivid' pic
ture of "Y" service in the trenches
and Professor Puis outlined the Y's
S. A. T. C. plans.
