TWAS ten, I suppose, and the pup
and I were wandering across the
dry stubble of prairie grass. I was
picking my way cautiously in a vain
endeavor to save my bare feet from
the sharp ends of the dead weeds. The
pup young, curious, and unsophisti
cated waa making wide excursions in
all directions, scaring Up a Bock of
quails or nosing in a gopher's hole. 1

In the hayfield ; the pup was intent on
We had not gone far until we came
upon a bumblebees' r.est buried under
the prairie sod. The bees were not
in a good humor. They were buzzing
about petulantly, and, remembering
former experiences, I veered to one
side. The pup was fascinated, lie
showed interest, but with head erect
he kept at first at a safe distance.
Then, his curiosity getting the better
of him, he drew nearer. A hoary,
obese bumblebee made a pass at hiin,
and he ran yelping to my heels.
The temptation to see something
new was too great for him, however,
and not heeding my voice, he went
slowly back, stuck his nose into Die
hole, nnd was stung.
It was a sad little pup, With a limp
tail and a wry, distorted countenance,
that trptted dejectedly anil thought
fully at my heels as we wended our
way back from the hiiytields. He had
sought and found adventure, he had
seen the world, he had hau experi
ence, but he bad paid dearly for it.
His is an experience not confined
to young and venturesome dogs. It

young fellow, curious, tager, Inox- !

hard to avoid the bumblebees' nest
There is the temptation to grow wise,
to see a little of life, to approach near
enough to those untried dingers to
tatisfy curiosity and yet not to be
stung. Eew boys expect to come out
of these derelict excursions any the
worse for the experience; they want
only to see, but he Is the rare excep

sting of shame and disg'-ace, and phys
The girl who is eager to be a good

MELLON GETS FRENCH
NOTE ABOUT DEBTS
Washington, D. C. The French
memorandum regarding payment of
France's war debt to the United States
was transmitted by Secretary Hughes
to Secretary Mellon.
Secretary Mellon becomes heir to
this much discussed document by vir
tue of his position as head of the debt
funding commission, authorized by
congress to receive and act upon all
offers of settlement by debtors.
Inasmuch as the document was pre
sented by M. Clementel, French fi
nance minister, to Ambassador Herrick
as an unofficial and private communi
cation, the state department officials
would make no comment on the sug
gestions embodied in it.
The memorandum is understood to
contain reference to a settlement plan,
including a moratorium, with payment
over eighty years from the time the
moratorium expires, and interest pay
monts during the moratorium period
at the rate of one-half of 1 per cent.
Portland, Or. A. L. Mills, president
of the First National Bank of Port
land, who was president of the Direct
Primary league, which gave Oregon
the direct primary, has prepared addi
tions to the law which provide for
post-primary nominating conventions
in certain cases. This measure will
be introduced in the senate and house
at the coming legislative session.
This proposal of Mr. Mills is the
first studied effort to cure some of
the alleged evils which have develop
ed under the direct primary since the
adoption of the Oregon system in 1804,
It provides that conventions, county,
district and state, are to be held fol
lowing the regular party primary elec
tions and that all candidates receiving
40 per cent or more of the party vote
at a primary election are to be im
mune from the jurisdiction of the con
ventions, but candidates who fail to
receive 40 per cent or more of the
total party vote, shall be certified,
upon their request, as candidates be
fore the convention, there to take their
second stand against each other or
against, new candidacies put into nom
ination from the floor.
