, "Mother, what shall , I call

she's a Mrs. novi" '
"Why not call her. Aunt Leila?

I -think both Lillian and I, spec
tators oi this reunion, were pny
ehically aware of a , certain ten
sion in the mental atmosphere.
Not on the part of the bride and
groom, one . could "see' their bub

mimicked Mrs. . Durkee changed

of the child's- expressive, humili

body had kissed him. and had
hastened to make amends. Her
face .changed; its, expression so
suddenly that she gave tho effect
of laughing and crying at once,
but . little Mrs. Durkee's laughing
voice fortunately took our atten
tion from her, ,
V'You may kiss me now if you
like. Dicky-bird,' she said, with
her - pretty lips i adorably pouted
toward him. (''I'm so happy now
I don't care! if my complexion

from his pocket; pretended to dust
her face, f then looked at it, and

Marion County Ready to
Go Ahead With Bridge
The cost to Marlon county to
ward the construction of the Pa
cific highway bridge over Pud
ding river at Aurora, to be con
structed Jointly by Marion county
and Clackamas county, will be
about .118.000, according to Coun
ty Commissioner J. T. Hunt. As
the Marlon county approach has
already been taken care of ex
penditure of funds will only be
necessary for construction of the
bridge halfway across the river.
Work on 'the proposed project
will begin as soon' as the two
county courts can get together,
Mr. Hunt says. Clackamas coun
ty has been hard pressed for funds
during the past year which has
made it necessary that work be
delayed to some extent.
