around the daughter of a man-who has
lots of money."
"Dad's money's mine too. 1 can
Not much It isn't. He'll cut you off
with a shilling if you marry me. He's

"And I'm a very determined girl.".
"What shall I do?"
"Go ask dad."
"I haven't the cheek not even funds
enough for a marriage fee."
"I'll go with you."
We went to the old man together. If
I hadn't felt her hand on my own it
was steady- as a rock 1 should have
collapsed. Strange, too, since-1 got a
promotion iu the Spanish war. A cur
rent of force running through my arm
into my body enabled me to say it all.
No," growled the old man when I
had finished. '
"I'm goius to marry him anyway.

"You'll think better of it some time."
"You think so? I tell you by all
that's holy if you marry that galoot
I put my money into a hospital."
He brought his fist down on the
table with such force as to upset a
pitcher standing on it, the pitcher
breaking on the floor.
"And I tell you, dad, you won't do
any such thing."
With that she turned and marched
me away. I felt like a dummy, and 1.
was one. . I'd simply talked like "a
phonograph wound by Nan. The strug
gle was between the father and daugh
ter. I had nothing to do with it. I
was simply engaged to a "girl who had
a battle to fight. , .
They lived together after that, as be
fore, and I could see no evidence of
bitterness in either or any disposition
of either to yield. I felt very despond
ent about the matter, because Nan was
determined to force her father to con
sent to our marriage and wouldn't
marry me without that consent. I
wanted her to give up the money or
give np me. She would do neither.
When I spoke of the former she said:
"What do you take me for? Dad's got
a couple of hundred thousand and no
body to use it but me. I've got top
much common sense for that."
' "Well, then, I'm going to" ;
"Oh, come, now, don't talk like a
fool! Be sensible. Leave it to me."
A fellow who had always looked
upon girls to be petted ana cudaiea
and managed wasn't likely to be
pleased" with .this way of putting it,
and I grumbled. But somehow I didn't
have the sand to break with Nan, and
away down in my heart I knew that
if she was to marry me, who had nev
er laid up a cent, she was right in her
position. Of husband and wife the one
having the right way will always lead.
Nan and I weren't married, but she
was so strong willed and practical that
there was no more romance between
us than if we had been married ten
But I was a man and had been a
soldier. The time came when 1 was
ripe for mutiny. One morning I told
Nan that I wouldn't stand in such a
contemptible position any longer. She
wouldn't marry me and live on my
small salary, and she wouldn't consent
to a breaking, of our engagement.
proposed to go to her father and tell
him that I was out of the squabble.
Don't make a fool of yourself," said
Nan. "He'll only laugh at you."
Paying no attention to the warning.
I hustled off to find the old man,
"Mr. Sprigman," I said, "I have ar
rived at the' conclusion that your
daughter isv wrong and you are right
about this proposed marriage. I have
come to tell you that I don't want her
with your fortune so long as she won't
marry me without It

he sneered." " -
"I don't mean It that way. I mean'

"I may be a fool,- but I'll not remain
in this position any longer."
"You won't have to."
"Have to! Of course I won't. I'm a
"Oh, don't talk, bosh!"
"I don't understand you."
"Young man, since Nan's " crazy
qnough to want -you, don't you go
through life with her balking her.
You won't be able to balk her any
way, though you're trying to do it
now. She's the only person I ever met
who had a stronger will than mine,
and that's naying a good deal, consid
ering the obstinate women in the
world. You tnirttv you're ' going to
slrqke her, -do you? la fiat event I
want you O understand I'm with her.
She's rrorth twenty such- as you, but
if she wants you she's got to have
you. I consent to the marriige. 'Now,
get away from ber If you can."
- Nan must have been listening, for
she opened the door, came in, went to
her father and, put" her arms around
his neck. ' '
"Dear old dad," she said, "I knew
you'd stand by me when the time
came. And I knew you'd find out In
time that Dick is a real manly sort of
r fellow." , - -
- MRats!" said the father, caressing
her. "You've done the business your
self. You sent him to me knowing It
would drive me In the opposite direc
tion. Besides, you wanted to give me
an excuse to back down.'!

Mighty. Mean Burglary ,
Perhaps the most sensational attempt
at burglarizing that has occurred in
Corvallis in many years happened last
evening. The room -of pretty Miss
Dorothy Talcum was the scene of the
tragedy. It seems that while all were
at supper the burglar deliberately en
tered the room of the young lady in
some mysterious manner and. made
away with her new picture hat. No
clue cf his whereabouts has yet been
found. Any information leading to
the arrest and conviction of the guilty
party will be liberally rewarded. No:
