SMITH IS FINED.
Plead Guilty to Permitting Minors
to Visit Pool Room.
H. H. Smith, who operates a pool
room on Main street, near Fifth, was
urrestod Tuesday on the charge of
permitting minors to frequent his
place and play the gnme, which Is
contrary to law. He plead guilty to
the charge but said that the young
mnn In question George Dlllman
ad represented himself as of age.
The case was tried before Recorder
Dimlck, who assessed a fine of $10
gainst Smith, which was paid. He
also sentenced Dlllman to a jail term
of ten days, but suspended the sen
tence during good behavior. The Re
corder says the charge was made that
Young Dlllman spent much of his
time and all his money In Smith's
place, and that the young man's
friends wished something done In the
mutter to break up the practice.

One, two, three. four miles, and

of slackening her pace. There wa
no wind nothing but stars and snow

white road. It wa glorious, this night
ride, or would have been If It were
not so grimly necessary.
"Can't you go Just a little faster.

Mollle gave a leap forward. It al
most seemed a If they were flying, so
little noise did the mare's swift hoof
beau make on the snowy road.
Suddenly she gave a leap sideways.
There was a crash a one of the run
ners struck a stone that some one had
carelessly lost from hi load that after
noon, and Gladys dived headlong into
the soft snow st the roadside.
LADY3 picked herself up and
shook the snow out of her
eyes. The soft snow had
broken her fall and kept her
from getting hurt. She looked around
for Mollle and saw her standing in a
drift up to ber knee a little ways
down the road, with nothing left of the
cutter but the thills. . In a moment
Gladys had waded through the snow
to the mare and was loosening the
thill straps. As soon as the thills were
unfastened she leaped to Mollie' back

Gladys shook her bead. "I I must

The doctor's wife, quickly realizing
that this was no ordinary call, pointed
toward the barn and hurried Into the
bouse after the lantern. It was but
a moment's work to throw off the
harness and replace it with the sad
die. Gladys hesitated an Instant and
then reached for the doctor's riding
