HOLDING A HUSBAND Adele Garrison's New Phase of Revelations of a Wife What Happened Beside th Lonely Road. The young son df the car owner who had been so discourteous to us stared delightedly at Lillian 'when she finished her summary of his fa ther's needs after the youth's apology for the treatment accorded us. "Oh, I say!" he exclaimed. "That's simply ripping! I never thought of Dad before in just that light. But it's tt truest thing that was ever said about him. He does need something to take hiin down, but you see he has more money than is good for him," the young man's flush of embarrassment grew deeper. "There's no one who has any power over him.

"Say, but it's awfully good for you to take-it like this!'' he said heartily. "I shan't forget it. I'm afraid Dad's going to try to do something un pleasant like bringing a motorcycle cop in lure if he can find one, but if he does, I'll" "My dear boy," Lillian interposed, "you will hamper me 'very much, and do yourself no good if you so much as open your mouth in our de fense, , no matter what your father chooses to do. Let mc assure you now, that powerful as your paternal ancestor appears to think himself, he is absolutely powerless to em barrass me or alter my plans in any way if he should bring a dozen mo torcycle cops with him instead of one." "I Hope You Succeed." The young man looked at her searchingly again, then he laughed outright. "I hope you succeed in providing the corner," he said understanding as he lifted his hat and went back to the big car over which the chauf feur was stooping. Jones raised himself and touched his cap as the young man ap proached. Then the two entered in to a low-toned colloquy, dotted with chuckles and discreet glances in our direction. Jones did something mysterious just under the plate hold ing the speedometer and the clock, and in a few seconds the motor as mysteriously returned to life. Then with Ted walking back to give any necessary warning, Jones began to A Happy Thought 1 v 'ft YVr yr-J HEMS OVEN BAKED BEANS The thought of them puts your appetite on edge! Sweet as nuts !

It had not yet turned the first corner when the siren of a motor cycle sounded warningly, and Jones in answer sounded the powerful horn of the big machine. I saw Ted throw up his arms as a signal and spring aside into the bushes as a motorcycle came around the corner, skidded sickeningly, then came to a full stop while its uniformed rider a slight youth not much older than Ted fairly tumbled off. "She's a Dangerous Character." "What's the trouble here?" he asked a bit chokingly from his sudden stop. Lillian advanced to meet him. "There is no trouble," she said. "Why are you here?" "Why!" he began, blustering a bit until he caught Lillian's glance, and then suddenly changing to a more respectful tone. "A gentleman on the road outside here just called me and told me that 'some people were stag ing a riot in here and obstructing the road, and building fires and I don't know what else. He's a responsible party. I've heard of him," his tone breathed the awe of wealth and posi tion which affects many minor of ficials. "Of course, I'm bound to look into things, but maybe " "Officer!" The word sounded raucously from the throat of the pompous individual, now hot and perspiring from his hurried walk in the wake of the motorcycle. "I de mand that you" arrest that woman. She's a dangerous character. The motorcycle officer hesitated, looking helplessly from Lillian to the heavily breathing owner of the big car. Ted started forward violent ly and paused, at a warning glance from Lillian. Jones, the chauffeur, who had stopped the backing of the big car at a gesture from his em ployer, sat stolid as ever, watching everything from tinder the visor of his cap. A furtive glance at him showed me a gleam of quiet amuse ment in his eyes, and I knew that he y-r ajt u Ha. Varieties anticipated seeing his haughty em ployer discomfited in some way. At the word "arrest" Marion gave a little choking cry and clutched at my hand. I bent to herewith a hur ried whisper:; "Don't you know that mother al ways comes out all right?

Just a Word About Electric Light Kates The Nebraska Power Go. asked the city commission for increased rates to give it greater revenue. The city commission decided that the company was not entitled to additional revenue. BUT- The commission found that certain large users of eleq-, trie power were paying less than cost some as low as 5 of one cent per kilowatt, while the average home consumer paid 6 cents, or seven times as much. For Example-; In 1920 one of the large packing companies paid $122,533 for the elec tricity it used. The city commission determined to wipe out this dis crimination. It raised the rates of the big users and cut the rate of the "little fellow" from .6 to 5 J .cents. The big users didn't like it. They have objected. But the majority of the commission went ahead and lifted the burden from the "little fellow." URE as City Commissioner led the fight in the city commission. He conducted the principal investigation of light company evidence. He pointed out its flaws and weak points. He drafted the new ordinance which cut the rates. URE is up for re-election next Tuesday.
