"Oh. I beard It a month ago! 1 think
It waa on Thanksgiving day. 1 dined
with the Atwaters. They said Clara
Webster was Just the girl for you. you
being Impulsive, aha steady and cau
tious." "Did they say that?"
"Listen. I have a little story to tell
you. On the very day. Thanksgiving,
that these persons were attributing
these traits to us a little drama was
"My friend Hilly Stnlthson Invited
Cinra and me to spend the Thanksgiv
ing week end at his bouse In the coun
try, which he opened for the occasion.
The affair was got up to celebrate our i
engagement, for Billy Is an old rhutu
of mine, and his wife la an lutlmate
friend of Clara's.
"Clara and 1 were to go up on the i
train together, but Just as I waa about ;
to leave the office to call for ber a Job !
came Into the otnee which nobody but
I could do, and 1 was obliged to re- ,
main over till the next day. I tele
phoned ber to go on and I would ar- '
rive the nest day. I reached the bouse
the next afternoon to find the guests
gone out on an automobile ride Billy
bad got up for them. There were
three carloads, and they were not to
return till 7 o'clock. About 6 I dressed
for dinner and waa going downstairs
when I met a man coming up with a
suit case In bis band. Presuming be
was one of the guests who bad Just
arrived. 1 went on down Into the li
brary, thinking no more about him and
amusing myself till the auto party re
turned. "This was the evening before Thanks
giving. The next day we were getting
ready for the feast when Clara took
me off Into a quiet corner and said to
"'Will. 1 have a very unpleasant
communication to make. On returning
from the aufo ride yesterday several
of the girl guests missed articles of
Jewelry. Several taxes In which the
Jewels were kept were found In the
closet in your room.'
"Naturally I was a bit upset l.v this
Information, but the principal muse
was that Clarn d'.tln't s.iy tills with
my hand in hers or Iter iirins around

""Clara." I said astounded, "do you
mean to say that you liave the slight
est suspicion that I stole these Jew
"'It Is the botiuden duty of every
one,' she replied, "to consider un ac
cused person Innocent until proved
guilty. And as your fiancee I feel
obliged to do what I can to Influence
the others to give you every opportu
nity to clear yourself.'
"It was not so much the portion In
which I was placed that troubled me
as the snapping of the cord that
bound me to Clara. In a twinkling my
feelings toward ber were changed
from attraction to repulsion. And yet
what fault could I find with ber?
What right bad I to expect ber to
believe me Innocent in face of such
proof against me and before I bad
brought forward any proof In my fa
vor? She was simply acting on that
trait In ber character for which those
persons you have mentioned on that
very day were giving ber credit
"This change In my feelings toward
her for awhile overrode every other.
Then the gravity of my position rush
ed upon me with fnll force. But what
could I do,? Ignorant as I was of bow
the Jewelry boxes got into my closet,
I didn't see that I could do anything
but leave the house.
"I went to Billy, who begged me to
stay, saying that there was some mys
tery about the matter which be hoped
would be cleared up, but I Judged that
be didn't know what to make of the
matter, and at last be agreed with me
that I might as well go. On passing out.
Sue Wentworth, who. since ber father's
failure, baa been making her own liv
ing by teaching school, came out of the
drawing room Into the ball and said:
" 'Mr. Tbruston. this Idea of your
having stolen Jewels Is absurd. There
are a hundred suppositions that can
be made, each more likely than what
appears on the surface. Borne one
stole the Jewels, took tbem Into your
room temporarily and threw the boxes
down there. That's one'
There was something in her hy
pothesis that brought back the man I
had seen going upstairs with the salt
case, and It solved the problem for
me, for It occurred to me that I bad
not seen him since. But this waa noth
ing to me compared with the comfort
X derived from Miss Wentwortb'a faith
n me. I Just put my arms about her
and hugged ber.
"She. backed by my atatement aa to
the man with the suit case, changed
everything- All came to me and beg
ged me to remain. I did so and waa
treated cordially by every one. Since
then some of the Jewels have been re
covered In possession of a thief, who
confirmed my theory of their loss."
"And bow about yonr engagement?"
"Oh. I'm engaged, but not to Clara.
She has too mncb caution for me. I
don't tlilnk I need It, notwithstanding
the opinion of your friends."

ANA RIVER IRRIGATION
In Summer Lake, the Garden Valley
of Central Oregon
Land in this valley has sold for $125 an acre without water.
It produces five tons of alfalfa, sixty bushels of barley, seven tons
of potatoes, to the acre without irrigation. This is on the West
Side. The land we propose to irrigate on the Kast Side is just as
good. Elevation, 4,140 feet above the sea.
Water Rights, $20 per acre-foot. $2 per acre cash, and the
rest in $2 yearly payments on ten years' time, at ten per cent, in
terest. No maintenance charge for ten years. The land is free.
Later we will put up the price of water rights to $50.
We are going to reclaim the bed of Summer Lake for its salts
and turn the land into farms. You do not have to live on this land.
Work started October 27th on Ana River dam. It will be
completed and water turned in the ditches April 1, 1014, and we
will furnish water for 20,000 acres next year.
We will put 100 teams to work about December 1st, and we
pay $5 for eight hours, man and team. The work is for those
who take up land and buy water.
If you have a team and are willing to work, come and we
will help you make a home on a quarter section of land in Sum
mer Lake, the Garden Valley of Central Oregon, famous for fifty
years for its fruits and vegetables.
