IT COST the people of the United States $10,000,000 for

He bent down to kiss me and if I
had been sentenced to death for not
returning that kiss, 1 could not have i
done so. Perhaps I am wrong, but
that was another little turning point.
Under similar circumstances nothing
would have kept life from John's side.
I know mother felt that way too,
although she tried to excuse him in
her gentle way. But It is one of the
many little things that I have never
been able to forgive my husband, even
though he gave me a wonderful
diamond ring as my particular share
of the profits of that business deal.
When It comes to changing her
mind. Dame Nature has over stepped
the bounds of woman's privilege sev
eral times in the past month. The
bolshevik! brand of weather present
in the Willamette valley throughout
November has merely been a mental
struggle on the part of tho venerable
nother to determine the most strik-
manner in which to open up an
egon winter. .
All the natural elements have had
a tryout except a back eaMt bliaaard,
but precipitation seems to have tak
en the most points. While the K.S5
inches of rainfall throughout Novem
ber is only a matter of 1.71 Inches
over last November's precipitation,
rainfall over the valley has been suf
ficient to raise the river ten feet more
than the highest stage registered in
November, 1918. The highest stage,
this November was 16.5 feet, a raise I
of C.4 feet In 24 houts. J
With a snapping north eastern gale I
the mercury dropped to IS degrees I
above zero on the morning of the
28th, winding up a cold snap 22 de
grees more severe than any during
November of lust year.
A smattering of hall and a few
flashes of lightning go to prove that
Oregon can have March weather in
November just as well as not.

Still he did not tell me why he

ask him if he knew what time the

up the stairs two steps at a time and

that John, who had been absolutely
