REVELATIONS OF A VIFE
The Story of a Honeymoon
A Wonderful Romance of Married life Wonderfully Told by
WHAT HAPPENED WHEN KATIE
MET COUSIN AGATHA.
"Ota. Missis Graham! Dear Missis
Graham! Hide me somevere qveeck.
Call Jim. He take me avay eome
veres. Don't let dot skinny old devil
coom by me any more. Oh. dear!
In ft passion of tears and sobs and
Treniied ejaculations Katie burst In
to the kitchen, which she bad left
' with a chuckle, and jest but a few
minutes before, and frantically shot
"the bolt In the door behind her as If
she feared pursuit. Sh caught hold
of me with ber quivering fingers and
poured out her walling plea with her
head against ray shoulder.
I wasn't particularly shocked at
her tempestuous entrance, for I am
used to Katie's emotional outbursts.
But the vehemence of her j sobs
alarmed me on account of her condi
tion. I knew that such emotion mn3t
be injurious to her.
"Nothing shall harm you. Katie."
1 1 said, patting her bowed hear as 1
would that of a f tightened child.
"You know you're safe here with me."
Now stop crying, like a good girl.
Hand tell me what has happened."
But It was several minutes before'
mr little maid could control herself
sufficiently jto. tell me what had oc
curred white she was helping mr
mother-in-law and Cousin Agatha,
unpack' after, their unexpected arriv
al at our home. And when she did
begin her story there was a wildness
tin her eyee, a choking in her voice
t that told me she had been subjected
i to some unusually severe emotional

ordeal during the time she had been
absent from me.
How Cousin Agatha Erred.
"Your mudder-m-law she not so
bad dis time," Katie began. "She
say. 'How-do. Katie; you bin a good
girl vile I bin gone?' and she smile.
I not know vot to tink. she bo nice
an' I say, 'Yes tank you; I try to
be good girl. Vat you like me to
"She say. 'Unpack ui3. and put

liked me to do. Den she ak me if
dere was clean towels, in' de bath
room, und I say. Sure!' and she say
I ought to say, 'yes. Missis Graham.'
und I say 1-sorry I forget, und she
say for me to remember next time.
and Fhe go out to bathroom to vasn '
her face and hands." ,
"Hut there is nothing terrible in
all this. Katie." I interrupted.
"Joost you vait." she returned sol-
elmnly. and I felt her trembling in
my arms again.
"Ven mudder-in-law vent avay,"
she went on. "I say to udder one.
'You like me to unpack your tings?'
'She look me all over from head
to foot, sooch a look, und she say.
I no tink I vant you In mine tings.
Are you sure you tell trut' ven you
bay you bin good girl vile Missis
What Katie Said.
4"I not know vat she mean at first,
and I say, Qf course I bin good girl,'
and den she say, real slow:
" 'You may tink yon hide it from
your mistress, but I bin superintend
ent long time in home for girls like
you. You no fool me. Ain t you
'shamed to pretend you good girl?'"
I started in anger and held Katie
closer as 1 mentally anathematized
the meddlesome cruelty of Cousin
Agatha. I had seen her type of char
ity worker before, and had known or
the mental tortures they were cap
able of inflicting upon the helpless
girls in their charge. It takes the
work of a doion-of the wonderful
self-sacrificing women who give
themselves to labor for erring girls
to compensate for the harm done by
the harsh, morbidly inquisitive wo
men like Cousin Agatha.
"What did you do, Katie?" I
asked, as she burst again into tem
pestuous sobbing at the thought of
the scene through which she had
passed. I knew how easily her at
tention was diverted, knew that if
she began talking again she would
gradually quiet herself.
"I joost look at her at first," Ka
tie replied, choking back her sobs. "I
not know for aminute Joost vot she
mean. Den I get so mad I could keel
her. I "fraid I fay someting awful
bad to her. I know you never let
me stay now, but I so mad by her.
I not care vot I say!" '
"What did you say to her?'
'i valk oon to her." Katie an
swered, "und I look her straight in
eye. und I say:
" 'You vun old liar!' "

about 3,(300,000 who felt like that on!v stronger.

like a pretty good place, after all.
I've been and seen uid done things that I
wouldn't give up my memories, of, for anything,
' I had a "fine crowd of buddies two-fisted
men with a regular man's outlook on life.
I learned how to take care of myself and all
comers to hold my own with the best and
with the worst
And I learned the sort of discipline that makes
a man able to handle men.
I got pretty fair clothes not as
good as the Army gives in peace

and they didn't set me back

ACREAGE IS INVOLVED

on Lake Beds Under Guise
Land speculators and locators of
Portland, who continued their loby
Ing activities in the special legisla
tive seion last month until the very
last hour of adjournment, are held
responsible lor the defeat of Senator
Eddy's bill No. 24. which declared
all lakes of 160 acres or more area
to be navigable waters and thefr beds
to be lands belonging to. the state.
Passage of the bill meant the saving
of many hundreds of thousands of
dollars to the state.
It got safely through the senate
and was killed in the house about the
hour of midnight on the closing
night of th session after members
bad been deluged with letters and
telf grams from private Interests and
kbbyists repesentlng the (ntecsts
had busied themselves among the
members up to the minute the bill
was voted on.
Suspicion a Are Confirmed.
These facts, though suspected at
he time, are now known beyond
donbt, and there Is said to be a
strong probability that the attorney
general's ofrice will institute Investi
gations relative to the operation of
speculators In the beds of some of
the receding lakes of the state. Fur
ther legislation will again bt Intro
duced at the next session of the leg
islature to settle title to the lands
upon the state.
At the present time there is doubt
on the question of title. Hut the
private Intercut not only ure as
suming the riKht to grab oil lands
bared by the receding waters of the
lakes, but are even taking artificial
means to drain the lakes and obta'n
the reliction lands before they can
be halted by considerate legislation.
Much Aireage larolvnr. .
The lake Involved are In all parts
of the state. Two of them al.ne
total an area of 40.000 aces, and
much of the land Is highly produc
tive. The waters of sonte of tbe
lakes are receding rapidly by natural
processes. Silver lake has dried up
completely In the last two years and '.
the reliction has uncovered 10.000 j
acres of land. Portland Individuals
have located persons on this lake-'
bed and brazenly term them "home
steaders." Through an act of the 1919 ses
sion of the legislature appropriating

of this may be i:?l tcr investiga

it may b? used to investigate the
