jJhe county convention Tuesday was a very peaceable
and harmonious affair at the court house.
In spite of the new dwellings that have been recently
built here, there seems to^be as great a shortage as ever, and
a demand that exceeds the supply just like it did before the
building movement was started.
President Coolidge has issued a warning note to Congress
'jigging the body to tighten up on the purse strings, as a treas-
---deficit is likely. It is probably good advice, but rather

ptcturlsation of this novel. ^
Adele Dayton, famous musical
comedy star, playing in “Po\c§9t
ily Back," returns to her home
town, Brookton, Iowa, to visit her
married sister. During her stay her
niece's beau, Harry Stark, and her
childhood sweetheart, George Rob-
ertson, now a bank president, both
fall in love with her. On her return
to New York, Harry follows her.
Later, George arrives, explaining
that Harry, decamped with bank
funds and that Adele’s niece !«
heart-broken. He begs Adele to give
up Harry, who is much younger
than she is, and Adele agrees for
the sake of her favorite niece. She
evolves a plan to send Harry back.
She kept glancing at the clock
uneasily, watching the minutes
sometimes crawl by, sometimes fly.
They crawled when she felt that
the sooner she got this episode
over with, the better; they flew
■when she thought of what was
about to happen to a very dear boy
with dark, compelling eyes. She
jumped nervously when the door-
bell rang and almost flew to open
the door herself. But she restrain-
ed her impulse and waited, im-
patiently until Renee entered the
room and went out to the little re-
ception hall to let In the caller.
Almost simultaneously with her
thoughts, Harry appeared In the
room and was clasping her hands
and kissing them madly. His face

looked slightly worried, she thought,
and she knew (that it was because
he had been talking to George.
“Adele, darling,’’ Harry looked at
her with, tender, loving eyes. ‘‘How
beautiful you look. I’ve never seen
you so lovely? before.”
“No?” Adele quirked her mouth
into one of her funny little smiles
that seemed- to say: “It’s all in
fun, isn’t it?”
“What have you been doing to-
day?’’ Harry questioned, looking
about the room. “Anything inter-
esting or exciting?”
“Not a thing." Adele lied mag-
nificently. ,“I had a most quiet
morning, and just dressed a little
while ago. Have you been writ--
“O, some,” Harry edged about
the question. “Mostly, I was Just
thinking, and wondering—’’
“About what?” Adele fitted a
cigarette into a slender onyx hold-
er and held it out for Harry to
light for her. /
“About you, sweetheart,—what
else could I think of?" Harry light-
ed the cigarette. “Don’t you know
that I never have anything else—
ever—to think about. O, Adele,
I’m simply mad about you. You do
love me—just a Bttle—don’t yon?"
/ He caught her to him and show
/ered kisses upon her mouth, her
eyes, her cheeks.
For a moment Adele was lost in
the happiness of his caresses. But
she remembered her part, and
loath to play It as she was, she
began it by pulling herself away
from Harry, laughing cynically
“O, don’t be such a silly, Har-
ry.” Her words were almost pee-
vish. She smoothed her hair, and
went over and quite obviously, be-
fore a mirrofr, rearranged the dis-

scarcely knowing what to make of
her words and her actions. It
wasn’t- at all like Adele. And yet.
there she was. calmly puffing on
that damned cigarette as though
she didn’t care anything at all
about him. And still the sheer
beauty of her; the flash of the red
fringe that just suggested the
movements of her body, seemed so
alluring—and somehow, in a way,
not exactly like, her. She had nev-
er seemed quite so strange and
aloof, for all her loveliness, as she
“What’s the matter, Adele?”
Harry came and stood beside her,
trying to look into the eyes that,
eluded him. “Have I done some-
thing? Please tell me—what Is
ette. Then she blew a cloud of
smoke and watched It- rise and
lose itself against the celling.
“You were amusing for a while.
Harry," she laughed cruelly. “I
might as well tell you that I’m
tired of the whole game. I'm
through with it—I’m sorry, but—
that's the story-"
‘Adele! O. Adele! My God!
You don’t mean that! Please say
you don’t mean it’’ He grasped
her wrists tightly, and held her
prisoner before him. “I don’t un-
derstand at alL You can’t do this
—you can’t turn me down this
way, when you know that I love
you—I adore you—worship you.
Adele, I’d do anything for you. Only
tell me that you didn’t mean what
you just said.”
“Harry, let me go—you’re hurt-
ing me," she 6poke angrily, loosen-
ing her hands from his grasp.
“I'm sorry,” he said humbly.
“I didn’t mean to."
“Well, you did. Just the same.”
She rubbed her wrists where they
showed red from his fingerprints.
“And I do mean exactly what I
said. I don’t really want to hurt
you, Harry. That’s why I’m tell-
ing you this now—instead of,later.”
No—no, I didn’t want to hurt him,
she cried to herself. I didn’t—
and it is best. “Don’t you under-
stand that this would have come,
sooner or later? And now, while
everything is still young and fresh
and lovely, it’s best to end the
“Adele! You’re not telling me
the truth. There’s some one else
—some one who’s taken my pl%ce.
Is that true, Adele?" Harry was
pleading, the tears welling up in
“Perhaps.—perhaps not,” Adele
chose -to be mysterious for the
moment “But it doesn’t matter.
Harry, whether or not there is
anyone else. The fact remains

game with you. For that’s all it
has “been—a game. And I’m used
to controlling my own life, so that

“But Adele, I came all the way
from Brookton, just to find you,”
Harry- cajoled childishly. “You
can’t realize how much you mean
to me. I can't live without you,
▲dele^-I; can’t—I can’t You’re the
most glorious thing I've ever seen.
I’m mad about you. I love you-*-
I lovd you—I’ve tried to show you
how much, I; do love you. Won’t
you, please say that you’re only
playing with me, now.”
Playing with you—ray dear boy.
I’m perfectly serious.” Adele turned
sharply away and looked into the
fije. “Don’t you understand that
have my work—and it comes
first—before everything else. After
that—love, if one can call It that,”
she shrugged her wlipulders, “I
don’t believe in it, myself. It’s all
such a passing, futile sort of thing.
I’m ndt actually sorry for you Har-
17, because this is going to teach
you a lesson. It will make you
less trusting and more sophisticate
and you need that”
“-Ad.eleH I can't lmderstand why
you’re sending mef off this way.
Can’t you give roe some explana-
tion?” Harry could not compre-
hend Adele’s meaning, for he saw
only the woman who flared like
a scarlet flame against the white of
the mantelpiece. “I thought you
were interested in me—in my work
—in what I wanted to do, if noth-
Your work!" Adele smiled light-
ly. “Harry, the. best thing I can
tell you Is that youTU never write.
You haven’t got It in you. But you
were entertaining, for a change,
and that was all. I can't say any-
thing more than that I liked you
Harry, but it’s only a waste of
time to go on and os, talking about
Harry slumptd down on the
lounge, his head in his hands.
Adele had delivered the final blow,
so he thought when s^e told him
so heartlessly that his work was
negligible and that she had merely
been amused for the. time being.
He looked so disconsolate, so piti-
ful, that the actress was tempted
to comfort him. She stretched out
her arms, but as quickly let them
fall to her sides. She must go on
playing the game—play it with a
smile, when it was almost break-
ing her heart. She turned her back
and stared Into the fireplace, her
eyes hot and dry.
“Adele,” Harry called to her
across the room. “Is there noth-
ing I can do—nothing that will
change you?” He got up and
walked towards her. “Don’t you
see I can’t let you go like this.
You mean too ranch/ to me. If
you’ll only just see me now and
then—I promise I won’t bother you
—I won't Intrude.”
“No, Harry," Adele shpok her
head. “I’ve told you It’s all over.
There la never any recapturing of
any kind of happiness. It must
come spontaneously, and the wis-
est man is, the oop who knows
when to pluck It In its full bloom
and destroy the blossom before it
fades into withered grayness. I
