<■ WWm It It ¿S$jk ■■ M V. ''- Ute ir SOT: "Our Mutual Girl" Meets World Famous Musician Leaving her home for the morning automobile ride one of the first spot of interest "Our Mutual Girl" saw was the famous Flatiron building, only eight feet wide at the point of its triangular base and eighty-eight feet wide at the rear. Margaret's aunt gave her come interesting particulars about the structure as they passed it. Soon "Our Mutual Girl" arrived at Lord and Taylor's, the newest and most pretentious of Fifth Avenue shops. There she saw the exhibition of Spring gowns displayed by the store's living models. Margaret could not but wonder at the number and beauty of the gowns shown. From there "Our Mutual Girl" took an auto ride through the crowded East Side, always of interest to her. She noticed a young girl, evidently poor, playing a violin in the street and she leaped from the auto. Margaret talked to the little girl and and found she was ambitious but poverty- stricken. "We are so...

3> MEMBERS PUT ON RECORD ON MILEAGE QUESTION. Elimination of 20 Cents Per Mile Allow- ance Would Be Entering Wedge To- ward Democratic Economy. Washington, April 17.—By a de- cided majority the Texas members of the house stood by economy and reform this afternoon "when records were taken on mileage and salary questions. In voting to eliminate the graft encompassed in the allow- j ance of 20 cents per mile each way, an entering wedge has been in- j serted and proper regulation will ultimately be established. As passed today the bill provides for actual travel expenses of members and immediate and dependent members of their families. The trouble rests in determining the latter, in event of attempts to abuse the privilege, but one round trip each session is permitted. That the republicans would weaken when forced to a record vote and undo their work of last week when they voted orally in committee for the 20-cent mileage was a foregone con- clusion. It is whispered that they are ver...

$75 In Gold will be given to the Church or So- ciety saving and turning in the most wrappers taken from CRYSTAL WHITE SOAP and Cartons of SEA FOAM NAPTHA WASHING POWDER to The First National Bank by 4 p. in.

"" . J GONE AT FIVE II Then Came a Surprise. By LOUISE MERRIFIELD. "And now, ladies and gentlemen, •re have this fine old piece of black walnut. Must have cost at least $75 fifty years ago. Just observe the hand carving, will you? Every one of those bunches of acorns is hand carved. Mirror real French bevel. See that initial hand carved right into the wood on top? That capital K stands for Kittredge, and this here bureau is part of the origi- nal black walnut, marble topped bedroom suit that old Granpa Kit- tredge bought in Boston fifty-two years ago. Ain't that so, Mrs. Kit- tredge?" Standing near the veranda steps was Grandma Kittredge, slender, erect and dignified in her mourning. Her sweet old face was tear stained, but courageous, as she watched her precious furniture go under the hammer, piece by piece. It was hard, nobody knew how hard, but they were all kind to her, and even old Billy Masters, the auctioneer, was making it just as easy for her as he could, and, standing next...

% ( The ! Doctor's Bill It Was Settled by Christmas By MARY A. BOWERS. * "Two dollars a visit!" cricd Dot in dismay, forgetting entirely that she had come to look for a spool of No. 40 in mamma's drawer, and opening her brown eyes wider and wider as she read the heading of an old bill of Dr. Cogswell's. "Two dollars a visit!" she repeat- ed. "Oh, why doesn't Donnie get well ? And where is all the money to come from ?" she asked herself sadly. "Wc will get very poor," continued Dot, shaking her little brown head slowly and going down- stairs: Mamma and Sister Margie were sewing. Dot went quietly to Mrs. Ledyard and whispered: "We'll feel very poor afterward, won't we, mamma?" Mamma smiled—a sad smile, Dot thought—as she replied: "You're better at guessing than we suppos- ed. Now, why don't you take your trimming, little daughter, and go into the library? There's a nice fire on the hearth, and you can work away like a bee. We'll need it soon, you know."

Turning a page, she laughed heartily over the humorous column, "The Conning Tower," at the bottom of which she saw the initials "F. P. A." "Why, I know Mr. Briggs and Franklin P.
