The House passed a bill appropriating $1,410.628,515. After certain addition and subtraction the Senate committee reported a bill calling for. S1.412.C69.465. The committee decreased the House bill by $1.322,050 and increased il , , rural, Mrs. Taylor, nod Mr. Mns- by J2.7G3.000.' Net. increase: sj 440,950. * * * Helping Allien All cf which Is just so many figures unless you notice that the increase was entirely "for construction of a dam at or near Oilbertsville, Ky." to "cany out the provisions" of the TVA act TVA wanted to build that dam jaM so did the House Military [•' Aflairs committee which nurses ~ $VA. The House Appropriations committee objected to this extension of Ihe TVA syslem. But Kentucky Is the home state of Senator Alben W. Barkley, Senate majority leader. A GUbertsville dam would be a big russet for Barkley, who had been having reelection worries because of Governor "Happy" Chandler's aspirations. Obviously, his fellow senators couldn't let,Alben down. Horse Trading And. so, while providing for a start on the Gilbertsville Dam they carefully pruned certain items from the House bill for no better reason than trading purposes They cut $75.000 from the- Centra! Statistical Board, $150.000 from ihe Civil Service Commission.'$24.050 from .the Employes' Compensation •'•.Commission, $100.000 from the! National. Advisory Committee lor -Aeronautics. $75,000 from the "nal Archives. $385.000 from -*•.•(• National Labor Relations Board and so on. None of these cuts made anj particular sense except for the fiict that the bill would subsequently go lo Senate and House conferees for n compromise. The House conferees could be expected to agree to Gllbertsville Dam if the Senate agreed to restoration of Ihe reductions. , Anc) .so it goes in the U. s. Con- firess. * * + Apple Statistics Speaking of figures, one a! the most creditable things to be said for the New Deal is that most of Us statistical agencies have struggled notably lo make their tables, charts and compilations more nnd C) max of Program Will Come When Scouts Rule City Thursday ' Services at the First Presbyterian cliurah Sunday night lv |(|, i ne Rev.

"It's nobody that concerns you,' answered Oliver Dart, though it was her gr.eal-unclc, his brolhei and her grandfather's, now deai . . . Wherew she tried to make contact, he thwarted her, so thai she had nothing to which to cling Ills hostility i^nelrated, as a fiosi penetrates the marrow of the bones .on a cold day, and eventually she fell silent, hoping in thi: way to escape his displeasure. "He's a terribly cross old man," she decided in bewilderment. She had told Mrs. Broggs she kjicw many such at home. She saw that she was mistaken. There was something baffling in old Oliver Dart's behavior. She did not know that it sprang from' a mind bordering on madness. ' 'While Polly was at supper Mrs. Eroggs ordered her helper, the porter, to carry the Mile doeskin trunk to a bedroom on the floor above. Presently she came for the girl and took her there. As thu door closed on Polly Chelsey, Oliver Dart slnit his eyes and put his finger tips together. It was thus that he could think of America most effectively, letting the venomous current of his hatred make the circuit of his withered body while his warped mind plotted. The coming ot this girl had fired his memory. He recalled afresh how he had lost a foi'luie when Yankee rebels had thrown British tea into Boston harbor before the last rebellion. Wounded in the purse, he had become a little "touched," Jiving more and more for the day when he would see the insolent American colonies (for so he still spoke of them) restored and punished .. . Strange that this girl should come walking into his house tonight!— A kinswoman? "Bah!" Polly, meantime, was relaxing under the chatter of Mrs. Brings and marveling over being so high in the air. "Are all London houses so tall and thin?" she asked. "Mostly the fine ones be. The drawing-room floor's 12 steps above ground, with kitchen and scullery beneath. Then the bed^ roor.-. floors above. . . . Tell me, did you get that bonnet in Amer- Icky?" "Of course," Polly replied, stepping out of her petticoats and slanding in her shift. "Didn't you know we had milliners and man- iuamakers in all our towns?" She was thinking: American and English people look alike, but after all, aren't we of one blood? Mrs, Broggs, now, reminded her of pompous Mrs. Pelt of Lyme village who had a nose for gossip.,. "Why are you looking at me so hard, Mrs. Broggs? Is there something wrong with me?" "I see you've got no Indian blood," said Mrs, Broggs in dismay. "It fair surprises me. Vour bosom, now, it's as white as can be, and your legs the same." Polly Chelsey laughed -; hard that the ol'" man below frowned toward the ceiling. She explained I o Mrs. Broggs, "My exposed parts Ure dark from the sun nnd wind of the sea. I'm freckled too. But I never thought yofi'd take me for nn Indian! . . , Tell me!

He takes his ease at first one palace and (lien •mother with friends of his—ladies and gentlemen of rank. Very sprightly, all of 'em." "Well," said Polly, "I'll go out tomorrow and sec the town. I've a brother just turned twenty; he'll )e asking me about the River Thames and Parliament House and Picadilly—places our mother used lo talk about." "Be your brother a farmer, Miss, . answered Polly. 'Dick's lame and a scholar. He's earned all the Greek and Latin he can learn in Lyme, our village. He's pining to go io Yale College at New Haven where they're about o start a medical school. He wanls o be a doclor of medicine. Thai's why I came after our share of rrandfallier Dart's rnoney." "Small chance of gelting it, Wiss! Get in bed now and I'll jlow out your candle. And tomorrow stay out ot the old one's way!" * » !* remembered to stay out of the old one's way, but she did not keep to her room. After a breakfast of porridge and tea in he kitchen she put on her street clothes and set out for a walk, im- >alient of Mrs. Broggs' advice to 'be careful and keep your benr- ngs!" It was a foggy morning, as if ast night's rain had not finished, md yet could not keep on, either. The result was a yellow-gray mist hat obscured objects 50 feel away and gave a dreamlike aspect to he streets. Gigs, chaises and carts noved at snail's pace over the cob- led streets, and there was a deal »e fretting ' * Irivers. one was like the young men who went lo sea in ships from Lyn>e, or who kept store-or tilled fnnrw erL-.iboul.

"Oh!" Polly cried, laying her hand on his arm in her swift, impetuous way. "Then so am J!

She turned, on icr heels nnd made off Ihroiigh the fog in the direction she believed Oliver Dart's house to be. The young man named .Terry Whillicit! wondered If London ale was too strong for liim. He said to Ihe older man, diet Wheeler, carpenter off the Eliza Ann, oul of Newburypovt: "Did you sec hnr too?" Old diet nodded vigorously. "Yes, I did, ladl A prelly gal, and 1 no mistake.

"American girl!" he s.-jid to himself, panting as he ran. "Needs me!—Got to fiml her!" There wove nol many women abroad, and whenever he saw one in the fog Jerry approached her hopefully. There was a flower seller on the corner, further on a tipsy woman from a grog shop and finally a char woman dragging weary feel into a courtyard. None of these had seen "a girl runnVig away," they lold him. Perhaps each wondered why any girl would run away from a young man that looked like this one, so handsome and earnest and distressed.

Polly counted out the money, being careful lo hold her purse well out ot reach ot that grasping clawv "Give me Ihe dog firs'l!" she .ordered cannily. , . . "Now go and buy yourself some food." The boy slid away like a dirty shadow. Polly Chclscy would hnvc thought il ;ui unpleasant dream except that Ihe little dog was in her arms, pressing close to her for warmth and comfort nnd trying to lick her neck. She said, "I'll name you Nuisance, because that's all you are." * * * 'pJIE fog wns lifting and she re- Irai-cd her steps. Eventually she found her way lo Oliver Dart's house.

Now the mas- ler'll be wild for sure. He'll turn you out it you try lo keep him. He's got a great fine cat that won't abide a dog on the place. Give the creature here while you go talk to Mr. Dart. He's been calling for yoti in a great rage." Polly abandoned Nuisance lo Mrs. Broggs and wcnl at once up lo Oliver Dart's study. The terrifying old man rasped out, "Sit in that chair, my girl." Then, '^Do you know your miserable country's declared ilsclf ,il war with England?" "Yes, sir," replied Polly. "I Tits ports were doscJ iVi /rip that ran Ihe blockade. board it on the street. I'm cntiglit here, nnd it serves mo right. American ports were ordered closed In April, but my cousin's ship ran the blockade. In New England mnny ships have been doing Ihat.

"Oh, no slrl" answered Polly rcjccling the only cue that might have saved the situation. "I can't fed that way. Nor does my brolhor Dick,.! reckon. The English nnvy's the cruellest thing on cnrth, nnd the most overbearing. You (rent your seamen so vilely Ihal you can't pot enough to sen* you.

When they don't find lltem, they steal our Jads Then there's the \vny you've sent the Indians down against our western frontiers, out of Canada, burning towns and scalping women and children. That's a pretty tale too, Mr. Dart!" •OLLY paused, startled nt her own boldness, yet not recanting. "The only thing I'm ashamed of, Mr. Dart, is that I came out on a ship that ran the blockade." Oliver Dart sntd proddingly, "So It's true, ns we've heard, Dint you Americans don't slick together, "' ? Your country's divided?" "Don't feel loo encouraged over Ihal," said Polly maliciously. "Wo linve our private quarrels, but Jet England try to pry us apart—!" "England will not have to pry you apart," Oliver Dart said with a cold precision. "She will take you in a Jump nnd annex you. You will be our colonies again, as the King wills. ... Do you know the size of the English navy, my girl?" "No, sir," answered Polly, shivering. "Eight hundred men of war.— How many ships has the American navy?" "I don't know, sir." Nor had the angry man who had questioned her. Had they Caruthersville Society — Personal W. M.

She was still in her coat ami bonnet. She ran down the stain and was about to open the street door when she saw the little terrier she had bought and completely forgotten. He was-in a corner ot the hall where Mrs. Broggs had abandoned him, and when he saw Polly he came eagerly toward her on his ugly little legs, a look of delight nnd welcome on his face. Polly stooped nnd picked him up. "You're a nuisance," she said softly. "I gave you the right name. I'll never be rid of yoii." She went out into the street, determined lo find a tavern that bore a sign with a unicorn ami crown on it. She thought desperately, yet with a surge of happiness, "I must find Jerry Whilfield!"
