faith, has called at the state game
and fish headquarters on the ground
floor of the Oregon building several
times, but it was not until yesterday
that he was privileged to see Mr.
Shoemaker in person.
"God has made a new man of me and
I want to make a confession to you
and ask you also to forgive me."
pleaded Mr. Hoople with the State
Game Warden. "1 killed a China

opened last Fall and I killed another
after the season was closed."

time and that is I caught some fish
up at Hoover. Or., about two years ago

you would forgive mc for the deed."
To both offenders of the law Mr.
Shoemaker gave this laconic admoni
tion: "Go thou, and sin no more."

commercial possibilities of ceramic
work. She began a study of landscape
painting, hoping to become an artist in
this line. Meanwhile she continued her
work on china as a means of meeting
expenses. It was originally her inten

she had succeeded in financing herself
through her study of art in America
and abroad. She had only the knowl
edge of china painting of the most ab

developed artistic instinct and she
found little difficulty in disposing of
her wares. She began teaching china

But Molly would not. do that. She
went downstairs again and tried the
door of the dining-room. It was still
locked, and she listened, but all she
could hear was the rattle of the dishes.
So she went down into the yard and
sat down to- think how horrid every

she saw all the little girls and boys in

boys. "I guess we surprised you, didn't

smiled at her.
In the center of the table was a big
bouquet of pink roses, and at every
plate was a pink ribbon with a card
bearing the name of the little girl or
boy who was to sit there. "Pull the
ribbon," said Molly's mother, and they
all did, and from under the pink roses
came little pink packages which con
tained a handkerchief for the little
girls and a silver pencil for each boy.
There were pink ices shaped like a
rose and pink cakes, and all the sand
wiches were tied with pink ribbon, and
the candies were all pink and white,
