Salem. With the practical exhaus
tion of the state highway bond funds,
the state highway programme has
now reached a point where it is de
pendent on its current income for a
continuation of the work. The estim
ated income for 1924 is approximately
$12,740,000, and a large part of this
money already has been obligated
through contracts awarded during the
Pendleton. The general indebted
ness of the city of Pendleton was re
duced by $24,000 during 1923, accord
ing to the annual report of Thomas
Fitzgerald, city recorder, to the city
council. A saving of $1200 annually
in interest charges is effected by the
retirement of the bonds. All depart

Why Mr. Minch
I By CLARISSA MACK1E
Body It Sliced In Two.
Neenah. Wis. Rudolph Pledrlekson,
twenty-four years old, of Neenah was
sawed completely In two when he acci
dentally fell on a buzz saw.
(, l2i, by McCIure Newspaper Syndicate.)
"Mr. Minch!" whispered a still,
small voice at the tall floorwalker's
lbow. "Mr. Minch!"
As the big blonde man did not rec
ognize this "still, small voice" as the
voice of his conscience, he bent his
head down to observe Lottie Miller, a
diminutive bundle wrapper, who was
registering great secrecy. "Kin I speak
a word to you?"
Bachelor though he was, Donald
Minch knew that when a woman asks
to say one word she means a score or
more, so he led the girl aside to a
"What's the matter, Lottie? Any
thing been stolen?"
"Nothing like that, Mr. Minch. It's
about the picnic."
Mr. Minch, as chairman of the en
tertainment committee of the annual
picnic and merrymaking of the Smith
Stores, Inc., to be held at Holliday
Beach next Saturday, listened atten
tively. "You know that new girl on the
Lottie sniffed. "Only one worth no
ticing, Mr. Minch. Name's Mary Smith
I bet that don't tell you anything."
"Don't be sassy, little girl !" warned
the floorman austerely. "There Is an
other girl, blue eyes, curly hair and
little freckles on her nose. A pretty "
"And he never noticed her 1" mur
mured Lottie, unafraid.
"What about her?"
"Mary Smith's been crying off and
on all day. She Isn't going to the pic
"Why Isn't she going?"
"She won't tell ; Just wants to go
and can't. It's Just tragic!" sniffed
Lottie, who loved the "movies."
Mr. Minch looked disturbed. "Send
her to me, Lottie. I will wait here."
Lottie sped away on her errand, and
Donald Minch looked watchfully out
of the corners of fine blue eyes In the
direction of the distant glove counter.
Presently the dainty form of Mary
Smith came toward him. There was
timid appeal In her soft glance and a
scared look as of one summoned be
fore high Justice.
"You sent for me, Mr. Minch?"
1-e nodded kindly and took a note
book from his pocket and poised a sil
ver pencil. "Let me see, Miss Smith,
you are in department 39?" he asked.
"Yes, sir; gloves."
"How long have you been with us?"
He looked at the open page of his
notebook. "You know I am chairman
of the entertainment committee of the
picnic next Saturday?"
"Yes, sir," in an awed tone.
"I am checking the names of those
who are going. All employees are ex
pected to attend if able. Your name
Is not checked. Why?"
"I am afraid thai I cannot go, sir."
"Er domestic objection or trouble?"
he asked kindly.
Mary Smith smiled sadly and her
smile was beautiful. It startled him.
"No home trouble, Mr. Minch. I
have no home my people are all dead.
I am quite alone. I would love .to
come to the picnic, but I am a perfect
stranger here and I have no friends,
so I thought I would stay at home."
He shook his handsome head. "That
will not do at all, Miss Smith. It will
do you good to come and get acquaint
ed with the other workers. This Is a
get-together party, arranged by Harri
son Smith what Is the matter? Are
Mary Smith was leaning against a
pillar, looking white and startled.
"Oh, no. You were saying some
thing about Harrison Smith It la a
common name enough, but I had an
uncle by that name."
"Indeed? Where is he?"
"We do not know we never knew.
He and my father became separated
when they were quite young men and
lost sight of each other entirely. Dad
always said he was sure that his
brother was dead he traveled all over
1 the world."
"That Is very Interesting Indeed,
and now, Miss Smith, I shall expect
to see you at the picnic bright and
early Saturday morning. BUWM will
be at the store to run you out to the
park. Be here at nine o'clock."
"Thank you, Mr. Minch. You are
very kind Indeed," she murmured, her
pale cheeks growing pink under his
admiring gaze. If Mr. If inch had
known that his eyes were btl raying
him he would have closed them swift
ly, for he was a young man who ap
preciated the responsibility of his po
sition with Harrison Smith, Inc., and
a remote manner toward the young
women of the company was a notice
"If you are not there, you will be
docked." he told Mary Smith.
So Mary Smith went buck to her
rounter. observed by all her fellow
"You certainly struck twelve with
Minch !" remarked Ella Brady, also at
the glove counter.
"How absurd I" blushed Mary again,
whereupon Ella Brady sent a wink
j across the aisle to Lottie Miller, whose
the surrounding water, there was
nothing more to be desired for a play
ground. As chairman of the entertainment
committee, Mr. Donald Minch was
here, there and everywhere, directing
games, leading the dancing In the pa
vilion, always finding time to help
some one else have a good time ; mak
ing introductions, seeking out the lone
ly and the unpopular ones, making
everybody happy. Neither did he neg
lect his own pleasure, for did he not
dance repeatedly with pretty Mary
Smith until her cheeks were as pink
as her frock? For his part, Mr. Minch
quite made up his mind that a bache
lor's life was dull Indeed. Whereupon
he sought out Mary and invited her to
attend the theater with him one night
the following week.
At this particular moment along
came Mr. Harrison Smith, a breezy,
opulent gentleman, who shook hands
with Mr. Minch and looked Inquiringly
"A strange face to me, Mr. Minch.
This Is one of our flock, I suppose?"
he asked genially.
"Miss Mary Smith of the glove coun
ter has been with us a month. She
says she has an uncle somewhere In
the world who bears the same name
as yours," said Mr. Minch, as he pre
sented Mr. Harrison Smith.
"Run away, Minch, while I question
Miss Smith 1 may be her long-lost
uncle, although I have no strawberry
mark on my left arm," said Mr. Smith.
"Ah, my uncle Harrison didn't have
one either, but he did have one on his
left thumb," laughed Mary.
Mr. Harrison Smith calmly held out
his left thumb. "What's that?" he
"Oh I" cried Mary frightened.
"Are you my brother's daughter?"
calmly asked the successful merchant.
"My father was Uobart Henry
"Where Is he now don't answer,
my dear. I see It In your face. I did
not know what had become of any of
his family. I have spent much time
and money " His genial fuce was
overcast with sorrow.
"We are alone we two," he said
after a while. "You must come and
be my daughter."
Just then Mr. Minch came along
and heard the whole story. "Get all
the folks together, Minch. I want to
tell them about my adopted daughter."
And as Mr. Minch, looking depressed
enough over the shattering of his plans
for a wife named Mary, Mr. Smith
drew him aside with a little slap on
the shoulder. "There'll be no objec
tion on my part if she wants to marry
a likely young man In my store, say
the general manager, eh Minch?"
And Mr. Minch smiled.
