"We are going to have a guet

one thing the aked of life for thee
firt few hourt following the "break
ing of her twear," with it attendant
trrrort, a enough work to keep
her from thinking,
"Mr. Cheoter," 1 returned. "Von

hit at it alwayt doet when 1 think

Katie la Enthusiastic.
"Do I remember?" the repeated
emotionally. 'Maybe you think I

Vol you link be like for dot lunch

She wat all enthusiasm, her wor
ries forgotten. I had no knowledge
of young Mr. Chester's culinary pref
erences, but be was youthful, mas
culine and healthy, and 1 knew any
good menu I could supply offhand
t Katie would do. But warily I
rooked on- an air of deliberation,
knowimr that it would please Katie
to consider the question one of im
portance. "Why! I don't know." I hesi
tated. "I don't know much about
it, but it seem to me that I have
heard him say he liked chicken. You
might cook those you had killed
this morning, and substitute some
thing; else for dinner tonight."
"Dot's eet," Katie assented en
thusiastically. "I fcex him dot
chicken so he got to have tree, four
plates. Und 1 have me some scal
loped potatoes, und some cauliflower
in dot cream and egg sauce, und a
salad, und I tink I can get enough
of dose everlasting strawberries for
a little shortcake"
"Ever-bearing," ; I supplied me
chanically, not reminding her that
she was planning a dinner instead of
a luncheon. .
"Eef He Don't" v
"Vot dot matter?" she inquired,
magnificently. "Everlasting ever
Jjraring both mean same ting to.
r mf. -1 can't spare .time to learn
"Do you want me to help yout"
I. asked- .'.'That' a -pretty big order
' to. get up before lunch time."
"Don't you vorry." She straight
ened herself with conscious pride.
"Dot r.oddings for me. Und I have
it all ready ven time cooms. But
you plees to fee some flowers for
table. Dot I no have time to do,
ttn, anyways, I no can do vay you
can. nobody fcex dem nice like you."
There was such sincerity in my
little maid's compliment, and her
eyes expressed such confidence that
not only in the matter of the flow
ers, but as Lillian had said, in
everything else therewas no one as
. wise as I, that I felt a little warm
glow at my heart. But I' knew bet
ter than to risk any emotional out
break on her part, so ,1 only said
' casually as I left the kitchen:
"I'll fix the flowers, of course, and
I think your dinner plan is a very
nice one. I am sure, Mr. Chester
will enjoy it." . .
"Ecf he don't, he. sure seeck or
crazy," Katie called after me. And
at this characteristic bit of impu
dence my anxiety for her lessened.
When Katie's natural impudence
comes to the surface it is a sign that
she is herself again. ,: ' .
I went to the flower garden, pick
ed a wonderful cluster' of bronze
dahlias, and . with a few white
: cosmos and a sprinkling of oranges
and scarlet velvety nasturtiums,
made a table decoration which satis
fied me, and made Katie wildly en
thusiastic, lhen, with a word to
Mother Graham as to the guest
whom we exppcted, .1 summoned
Marion and Junior, saw that they
.were presentable, and with an im
pulse which I did not define, change
my morning working gown for one
of blue linen, which my mirror and
the verdict of my family had told
me was especially becoming. .
I A Silly Song I
' p a rtirrnn pton '
I'm' sad and melancholy as I sit in
niv shack and 1 am gaunt with hun
ger and pains are in my back. I
have eczema on my face and patches
on my clothes, but I must never say
a word about my many woes and
I must never, never wail or weep a
briny tear for I am paid a salary to
sit and scatter cheer. My taxes are
delinquent, my grocer's bill is due,
but I must peddle laughter, I can
not feel blue, bo long its been my
business to cheer the human race, a
permanently and ghastly grin has
grewn upon my lace. 1 wish 1
could lie down and weep and howl,
"Oh, woe is me." But I must sit
and sing all day and swat my lyre

Hw Best Thondit' of .Its
A dozen leading daily newspapers of Nebraska carried, simultaneous
ly with The Omaha Bee, a summary of the Nebraska tax situation, as
compiled and written by Paul Greer, Bee staff correspondent-
They did this because The Bee in this article had presented a version of this vital problem which
these leading newspapers felt it their duty to pass on to their own readers. v
1$ The Omaha Bee does not assume the right to control public opinion; it merely aspires to REFLECT
THE BEST THOUGHT OF ITS FIELD. Therefore other newspapers of this state, haying the
same ideals, welcomed such an opportunity as The Bee tax summary to co-operate for the common
good of Nebraska taxpayers.....
The Omaha Bee from time to time gathers by wire the opinions of
representative Nebraska editors, regardless of politics, on topics, of
importance and immediate public interest, publishing these opinions
on the editorial page as a digest of public opinion. This Forum is
today the most comprehensive "meeting place of ideas" in Nebraska.
From over Nebraska, from all parts of the United States and Canada
and the principal foreign countries, The Omaha Bee gathers daily the
story of the world's progress, the news of the day; and presents these
accurately and fairly, and without political or other bias or preju
dice. The Omaha Bee has the service of three wires of the Associ
ated Press and its own special leased wire. The Bee maintains spe-
cial correspondents in Lincoln, Washington 'and through the Asso-'
ciated Press and its special wire service has the service 'of, corre
spondents in every important city of the world. Through the same
wire services The Bee has correspondents at every stock exchange
and grain market of importance in the world. Over 100 special cor- '
respondents in Nebraska and Western Iowa are responsible for send
ing all state news promptly to The Bee.
The Bee has today the largest circulation in its history because it is
today Nebraska's one really great state paper, and is so regarded
over the United States. .
