U KYAIDI St2&U KFUXDED ASK ANY DRUGGIST "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 demanded. 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 evaded." 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 company?" "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 others: "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. ' CHAPTER III; 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 figures. "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 12:15." "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 obeisance. 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 confused. "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. (Continued Tomorrow) 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. South Side Huwaldt Defeated for Board of Education Official figures given out at the meeting of the Board of Education last night- about the election of six members of the board on November 5 snowed that Edward Huwaldt was the defeated candidate.

Bulgar Republic Camouflage Think Greek "Officials Athens, Greece, Nov. 18. Reports of a change of the regime in Bul garia and of the proclamation of a republic there have been received here, but official confirmation is lacking. The general opinion here is that the teported founding of a republic in Bulgaria is a new move on the part of Bulgaria to escape certain responsibilities in . connec tion with the coming of peace. MINISTERS HAVE ARGUMENT OVER QUAL1EICAT10NS 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. Former1)maha Doctor Is Victim of Pneumonia Dr. Joseph F. Borghoff, former resident of Omaha for 28 years, died a martyr to the cause of humanity Sunday at St. Amies hospital in Butte. Mont., where he was physi cian in charge and had worked un ceasingly, especially during the last several weeks, in saving the lives of scores of influenza and pneumonia victims.

You say I've never had a fiasco I have one now." "How's that?" The friend was plainly puzzled. Keenan smiled genially. "I have a flask I have a fiasco! How? Why, 'fiasco' means bottle or flask.

AT THE THEATERS EDWARD LYNCH, one of the real favorites of Omaha, will be here next week playing at the i- .i nr t.. t i tt Boya witn ieave it to jane, ne writes from Kansas City, where the company is playing this week, that he is looking forward vto 4 very pleasant visit here. Mrs. Lynch is with the company, too. "Oh, Look!" has a little more than redeemed the promise of the man who came on ahead of the company to do its advertisement 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. Raloh D Paine will nresent the first story of the navies at war, en titled, "The Fighting Fleets," at the Brandeis Theater on Thursday .eve ning, November 21.

I he top line scenic sensation, "The Forest Fire," reg istered a decided hit. Wilfred Clarke, a farceur of wide populari ty, offers his latest comedy called "His Reel Trouble." Florence Tempest, charmingly attired as a boy and also as a girl, wins appro bation, ecpecially for her exclusive songs. 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 Gayety twice a day this week. The mounting and costuming of the big 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 role in the original farce from which the piece is taken. Miss Vokes is identified with this type of charac ter, and in it has made uproario s successes. For some time it has been evi dent that the world war would :n- spire a new drama. Such a play is "Getting Together," in which Blanche Bates and Holbrook Blinn are appearing as co-stars. This offer ing is a combination of drama, mu sic and spectacle, and is said to give the first comprehensive picture of what fighting in r ranee is really like. William Winter Jefferson, named after the famous dramatic critic, and a member of George Broadhurst's company appearing in Mark Swan's farce, "She Walked in Her Sleep," is a son of Joseph Jefferson of Rip Van Winkle fame. Mr. Jefferson made his stage debut at the age of 8 with his father, and played with him for 15 years. 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.
