Then they were entering a door marked "Private." Toby hud never been in this of- "Come with me. I'll speak to the cashier." , .... Ten - minutes later Toby Ryan was- walking along the" slushy street. Tears blinded her and she brushed them back, but they would not stop. Passers-by Entered at Albany, Oregon, pctofflee as ( accond-elaaa mail. Member United Preia ' and NKA Neva Service. Established 1866. 1036 N6A -r.Ice, Inc. BY LAURA LOU BROOKMAN aturing at her. three fuces. grimly accusing. Suddenly the girl threw up one hand. ' ' "It isn't' truel'.' she cried. "It-it can't be true. I didn't take the watch and I don't know anything about it! I tell you I didn't take it !" Her head dropped forward and she covered her ce with boti. her hands. Sobs shook her shoulders. The. voices of the others went cf?. but Toby did not hear them. She did not know what tney were ders! even managed to build a $10,000,000 capitol without borrowing a dime. The old shell game is not being played any more in these two states. The taxpayer is beginning to get value received for the money the slate takes from him. And what .uisas and Nebraska did, all the rest of the slates can do, if their people wake up and demand it. We do a great deal cf talking about the need for reducing government expenditures, and when we say that we usually think about Washington. Reduction of stale expenditures is fully as tiy I "No." ! "Then why didn't you return tliem to the case?" : "But I did!" I "All of thehV' "Yes." ! "'f here are three watches in the case.' Miss Burrows said. "The : foui ih and most valuable is not j there." j "But, Miss Burrows, I did put all of them in the case. All four of ! them. It must be there!" t The brown-covered book lay on i the desk. Miss Burrows picked it !up. "If you returned the watches, ! why didn't you sign for them?" ! she usked. "But I did " Toby began, then suddenly remembered she hadn't signed the book. She had meant to i and then she had gone to wait oil the woman in the leopard coat instead.

"The I cashier w ill give you your check. It's an hour before closing time, i but you needn't go back to '.he de partment. Since the watch has been returned we won't go any further with the matter " Toby tookO'ner hands from her tear-stained lace. "But, Miss Burrows, I didn't take the watch!" she insisted. "Oh, won't you please believe me?" The older woman only said, WINTER IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SANTA MONICA An Ideal Place to Live , At the ' ."'

That was how some of the girls were able to boost the totals in their sales books far above the oihers, thereby earning bonuses. Toby, had only one or two such "regulars." She was grateful to the woman in the leop ard coat. She turned to her next customer. Not once did Toby think of the blown-colored book she had left lying on the counter or of the watches in their case. , !! 20 minutes more she was busy. Then she was surprised by touch on her urm. Miss Burrows, the buyer said, "Miss Ryan will you come with me to Mr. Henderson's office. Right away please." "Why yes." Toby could sec that somethina was wrong. She stepped out into the aisle beside Miss Burrows and said anxiously, "What is it? Has anything happened?" . ; "I'd rathei not say anything until we're upstairs." That was all. But Miss Burrows who had always ben pleasant and friendly was suddenly another person distant, unsmiling, a stranger. Something WAS wrong. roby s eyes darted to the buy- ir's agY??y She was about to speak vut once more Miss Burrows said jrvut It will be better to wait until we're upstairs." They stepped into the elevalur. o o 'afesa7 for WORDS I turned to look at the girl curious-lly. Toby did not see them.

"Won't you ah sit 'down," he said, motioning toward chairs. He went on, looking at j Toby, "Well, young woman, what j have you to say for yourself?" Miss Burrows cut in, "I haven't discussed it with her. 1 didn't want others listening." She turned toward Toby. "Vou might as well tell the truth," she went on. "We'll find out soon enough if you won't. What did you do with the watch?" Toby's blue-gray eyes widened. "What do you mean?" shjiskcd.

"But, Miss Burrows, 1 don't know what you're talking, about!" Panic edged the girl's words. Panic poured out of the blue-gray eyes.

M. C. Mosensen A Co., National Adver tising Representatives, LIFE HAS COMPENSATIONS Prince Scre,e Mdivani of the professional husbiind brotherhood has been slain by a horse. Not lonfi ago his brother. Prince Alexis Mdivani also met violet death in an automobile accident. These two incidents brinK to mind a number of sayings about honest toil, the decepliveness of glittering things which arc not gold, ame9so forth. Perhaps some of us have envied those princes and others like them who have ch$en to dedicate' their .lives to the principle of living without working, devil take the ways and means. The Mdivani brothers mude their life-work matrimoninl business, a calling which, while it may have its draw-backs, certainly can be conducted with a minimum of physical and mental effort. With artificial and extremely doubtful titles as bait they have been able to attract women of more means than brains to support them in style. The princes had no estates, abilities or other sources of revenue. Only by selling their titles to weak-minded, sirong-pursed women have they been able to exist. By no thought nor deed hove they justified their existence. Yet they have lived in luxury. To hard working people it dues not seem right that such persons should be so blessed, but the brevity of the Mdivani lives proves that life is always attended by compensations. The slaves of industry may lack leisure and caviar, but they have at least the satisfaction that they have contributed, however impcfteplibly, toward betterment of society. No such reward has ever been the lot of the Mdivani brothers. Perhaps the marrying brothers have not suffered from lack of this satisfaction. They may have felt no remorse. Uut most of us would fee otherwise than they. We feel that we have been placed on earth for purposes other than to live without effort. Only u few are content to live off the ea n-ings of others, and those few who succeed in accomplishing this end usually come to some such straits as hove cut off the Georgian princes, leaving no contribution to the world nor any lasting imprint on the book of life. DEBTS STIt.I. I)K-lti:sS ' Few things are more depressing than hoplcss debt. During the last six years financial obligations have been the biggest problem before the people. The entire course of civilization now seems to depend chiefly on what is to be done with debts. Congress nnd similar bodies in the several major nations have been faced at every session with the pro'm, not only as it affects nations, but as it concerns individuals. Yet the difficulties of -debt remain unromoved, and in the meantime debts At still being piled up. It is refreshing,, therefore, to read an article in the current Nation's Business by Congres' man O. K. Armstrong of Missouri, which points out that tit least two of our slates have found a way to get their finances in order. These slates are Kansas and Nebraska. Even in the depression, they managed to cut their taxes and lower their costs. They have had the help of skillful governors; they have been helped even more by the fact that their citizens, earlier, had the sense to puss sensible lows. Kansas has strict tax limitation law, and a compulsory budget law. Payments on slate and city bonds must be made out of income; there are no sinking fumis. and the old game of borrowing to pay off old debts is out. Nebraska, even more remarkable, has no bonded debt. The state constitution forbids the issuing of bonds, and the state government has to pay as it goes. It Rets its revenue almost entirely from property taxes, levying neither income, sales, nor cigarel taxes. The .laic wonder of won BKfilS HERE TODAY TORY RYAN.

' Toby cctuld h:Q reached the jewelry department either way. The distance was exactly the same. By UirninK to the riht she passed the silverware counters. She was currying the four wrist watches in her hand. An alert alert. business-like little fiJjrc, Toby Toby moved quickly. As she passed the silverware department Mr. Pilaris the young buyer,- stepped into the aisle. He said, "If you're going in tor smuggling you must be an amateur. That's not the wuy " He was smiling good-naturedly. Toby couldn't very well brush past him. She said, indicating the watches, "I've just brought them from the advertising departments They made a sketch of them." Mr. l'huris picked up the tiny "debutante special." "How much is this one?" he asked. "Seventy-nine lilty." "Good little watch," Mr. Pilaris nodded. He turned it over examining the other side. "Looks to me," he went on, "like a good value." Toby agreed that she thought it was. Maurine Ball, two counters beyond, glanced up just then. Maurine saw Mr. Pilaris with his head bent slightly and Toby listening, nodding in cement. Maurine didn't see the watches. But she knew that when Mr. Phut-is looked ut her like that, invariably he asked for a date. She concluded, therefore, that he was making a date with Toby. Anger, consuming and unreasoning, swept over Maurine. The day before, when Toby had been chosen to pose for the ndvertrsing photographs, it had been a blow to the other girl's pride. This was much worse! Maurine's face, above the cure-fully penciled crimson lips, wont white, and the customer, asking the price of u charm bracelet, had to repent her question. at It was only a few moments later that Toby slipped the watches into their place on the satin folds inside the counter. Then she got out the hrown-eovered book in which mcr(jB)indisc borrowed by oilier departments wiu listed. It was a rule that moimdise ta ken anywhere else in the store must be "signed out" and "signed in" with the name of the person to whom it was entrusted. Tuby, about to sign for the watches, looked up to see Maurine he(S)hcr. She did not notice that the oilier girl seemed agitated. Maurine controlled-, her voice well "There's a woman over there," she said with a nod, "who's been waiting for you." Toby turned, and instantly remembered. It was the woman in the leopard coat the one who had bought the compact and then discovered she lacked money to The woman looked up and recognized Toby. The girl smiled and hurried lorward. vou ve come for your paekagu. naven t you.' Toby said. "It s right here. I ll get it" She turned to the wrapping desk ind was back with the package. "I hope you'll like it," she said, handing the package across P counter. J The woman opened her purse and took out a bill. "While I'm here." she said, "1 believe I'll look ai (nut oilier compact you showsv ed me- the hammered silver oiva I think perhaps I'd like to have 'f both of them." ! Toby gut out the tray of com pacts and v woman decided to take the ,wn one. Waiting for package to be wrapped and to Sjvc her change, she said, "I've siVy more shopping to do next wccK gifts for some nieces of mine. You've lu-en so nice about this. I think I'd like to have you wait on me." "I'll be glad to," Toby told her. "Any time."
