Honda? noon—tod tbe btsUljr performed ceremony was like an •nti-cllmai to tbt passionate scene of parting Thursday night when Ere bad decided sbe wanted to be Dick's wife with as tittle loss of time as possible. And now. eren while sbe was ' being married to Dick, tbere was tbe menacing ghost of tbe "o~^a- Ing hovering between her and her happiness. To Eve ber wedding was like a disturbing dream. Would she get back to tbe store before Mr. Barnes sent for ber? Would Dick b« angry and storm when she told nira what bad happened that morning? Or would be be hurt and silent? Well, she wouldn't tell him until *oe bad learned for sure—this evening after dinner. No ube to spoil tbe afternoon for him. She tried to focus her at- tendon on the words that were binding ber to Dick, but there wre so m»iy thoughts that kept Interfering. EVE BAY LESS Ttraatioa was •• dangerous ground. It bad been Ob tbe tip of ber tongue a moment ago to tell Arlene and Marya a bent tbe wedding that noon in the Little Fione Cburcb, bnt sbe was not >'et ready for that disclosure. Too many things were crowding themselves into tblf day. • • • ' r r>UE second of tbe most Impor- 1 tant events of five's lit* was to take place witbln two bours after ber wedding. Two abarp sounds oi» tbe buzser summoned btr to tbe office of Earle Barnes, advertising matfarfer of Bixby's. Altbougb ber work took ber ;to Barnes* office mas? times each day. Eve felt half-sick with trepi- .dation this time. She trembled involuntarily, and ber bead throbbed with a dull acbe. Yet sbe etrove to maintain an appearance of outward calm. A swift glance in the wavy old mirror hanging over tbe washstand in tbe corner reassured her, and tbe group gathered about Barnes* desk little suspected that tbe lovely, flushed •- face and eager bright eyes of the girl Joining them masked real fright. Eve's chin was held bigb, however, and she managed'- a smile as she acknowledged the salutatory nod of white-haired Mr. Bliby. founder and owner of the store. So much depended upon' the outcome of this conference: Barnes drew up a cbair for Eve, neit to Alice Marshall, pho was first assistant advertising man- giving them his blessing. Uick's riug was on her flnger. Dicks arms were around ber. Dirk's I)j,-s. possessive yet very lender, pressed to hers.

"Oh. she should .have waited until June to be married, sbe told herself unhappily as she went into the office. If only they could have been married Saturday Instead of today, it would have nelped the situation some. . But the state law had been changed and a three-day notice was required before a marriage license could be issued. She knew she dbonid not be thinking about all this now. She must keep her nerves steady and her mind clear for that conference - -''two *c!--'- witb She Mr. yet feared, the outcome of that conference. 5 IE about it dearest." Eve consulted her watch when *ue reached the third ttoor. She had Just five mlndtes to change from tbe brown, ensemble which was her wedding costume into ner smart but simple black 'ress. The change wa* » otflf-e VE was relieved to find there was co one in the advertising office except Marya Vlad. tbe fashion artist, who was working at her drawing board In a corner by the window. Perhaps Marya was not so oblivious to what went on about her as sbe seemed. Perhaps her candid -blue eyes were more penetrating than her'fe*low workers realized, bnt at any rate she was too courteous and con- special man. JHe'a the marked victim of my fatal- charm—not Mr. Barnes, nor ;yet Mr, Bixby." "Ob, 1 ,know," said Arlene. "The strong, silent one who parks that yellow roadster at the side entrance at quitting time about five evenings a week. Listen, dearie, any time you get a chance to pass up this madhouse in exchange for a permanent seat in tbat roadster and tbe privilege of operating a kitchenet and can- opener for that young man you'd better grab off the prize."

"It will give added Interest ana importance Ao the ' launching of your special column and ought to give you talking points for many weeks to come.

Take whatever time you need* tbis afternoon to go borne and pack or for shopping.- With an Indulgent smile be dismissed .an exultant yet frightened Eve. Eve knew tbat this trip to New York meant tbat the management at Bixby's bad almost certainly decided upon~ber as the successor to Alice Marshall. When sbe accepted the expense money for tbe trip, she felt sbe bad sealed ber fate. It was the thing sbe bad wanted, of course. She bad slaved to get where sbe was. Eve's work always bad come before ber pleasures and ever since sbe begin working she bad bent all ber energy toward one goal—to become manager of aa advertising office. This promotion was a long and important step toward that ambition. 'Tbe expense money exchanged for Travelers' checks and tucked safely into the enamels bag with cheap, nondescript frame that held her mother's picture, went to tbe Y. W. C. A. where A , way , 8be nad plMMd to buy . her precious wedding ring. Eve With a quick l°°k to «« that no one ttas near, Dicfc gathered her in fa's arms. worry about on that score. Suddenly Eve was conscious of that sbe bad rooraed ever since coming toj. Lake City, and packed a bag for the New York trip. The small, shabby room_*t the T that she had occupied these last busy, happy months of her girlhood already seemed a, little strange, a little deserted. Eve had stayed on here-even after she could have afforded inori, attract live and comfortabK quarters, This decision wa* prompted entirely by economy. The building was conveniently tear her work, and provided room and board at a very reasonable rate. Eve preferred to economise, thus and put ' the money • saved "into pretty clr'hes - cl educati al advancement. Eve was careful: thrifty Sbe did nothing without a definite purpose. From the little table that served as a writing desk the pictured face of Eve's mother smiled at her from its cheap frame— the warm, steady niotber-siuile ibat had been unfailing all through Eve's life. Now sbe paused contritely before that picture of Kate Bayless.. It was •vrong. of wtitten to courte. dot her mother to have thai sue was marrying DJt-k today. It was tbe first time she had ever shut her taother out from any important event of her life. True, sbe and Dick bad .*-tided hastily. And ot course her mother was cerrain to approve of Dick. Kve reflected proudly. Her father, too. Dick Kader was exactly the sort of dependable. Industrious young man to please the most exacting parents Nothlnc 10 better one. bat always tbere bad been aomething sbe had wanted for herself. Now sbe was ashamed that Dick sbould see her mother's picture in this frame. It almost seemed to ber that he would know about.the various things she had bought for-herself with money that might have bought » frame. She would buy a, new one iu New ; York—a lovely, silver one. AS she packed for the trip Eve remembered regretfully that she really bad very little beside ber clothes to take to ner new borne. 'She' had'never as do so many g'r's, bought pretty thiigs to adorn her future hcme. Esther, ner sister, bad dozens of lovely gif's to take With her when she married. Hut Esther tad nan a long en. r agtM tat to a home town hoy. sb^ers, engagement paries, snd a reccing to which a w.i.d* 1 circle of relatives atid friends were Invited. Those things meant so much to Esther. With Kve marriage was important, but so was ber career. * live recalled how she hail started at Buoy's. Determined to get a foothold as a copy-writer, sbe bad made the rounds of all the agencies and alt tbe stores In. Lake City before sbe reached Bijby's. The fact tbat no one needed a beginner and frankly told ber so. bad not discouraged ber but merely put ber on her mettle. Then sbe did what she considered •« daring, preposterous thing. She went to Bixhy's. most Earle Barnes, the advertising manager, to give her a trial. "Never mind discussing salary now," she had said. "Let me work two weeks. Then give me what you think I'm worth.'' And that astute gentleman, who prided Himself on his shrewdness ID judging an applicant's character and ability, had told her to go ahead. "But remember," he warned her, "I'm not promising you a definite job. There isn't an opening here at present. You'll hare to make a place for yourself. Browse around here and there la the store. If you see merchandise that looks to you like news, write about it If you make gQOd—" And Eve had made good. Now Barnes was demonstrating bis faith in her ability by giving her a column in Biz by'a daily advertisement to fill with chatty comment on the fashions, new merchandise and tbe like. And to give the column an impressive start, Eve was to have a week in New York. Two days with Freda Carter, the dress buyer, on her way home from Paris with trunks filled with gowns from the Rue de la Paiz. and tbe rest of the week to look about for herself. Eve's heart should sing, she told herself, instead of lying like a lump of lead and interfering w'" bnr breath; H'er heart should slag because sbe was Dick's wife. . Bnt this evening^— the evening of their wedding- she was going to New York without him. And Dick bad not yet been told tbat she was going. -. ... • • • J T was 6':40 that evening before Eve, almost breathless with "haste and excitement, emerged from Bixby's. Dick was waiting. There was something almost pathetic about tbe way she approached him. "Oh, Dick, I're kept you waiting!" she cried, penitent, as she slipped her arm through bis. And something re- onrir™ nrnfpcting. In his an* swer that be would always b« waiting for ber. Tbe November day bad turned stormy and Eve brushed tbt snow from Dick's sboulders as the? reached his roadster. How handsome be looked in his new nary- blue camel's balr overcoat. Then was an air of unassuming prosperity about him. Dick tucked ber in, pressed her band and closed the door. When he slipped behind the wheel and started the motor Eve leaned over and kissed him. With a Quick look to ace tbat no one was near, Dick gathered her in his arms for * bris* instant and as quickly let ber so. She would tell him now. Might as well have it orer. "Dick," she began, "I have something very, 7*17 Important to tell yon." "Better wait till we (at oat of this trafflc," he warned. "VWli hare a lot to talk over then." And Ere was glad for the delay, it was aot going to b« way to tell him.

The air was fragrant with exotic blossoms. On a wrought iron balcony above sat a senorita in yellow, wearing a black lace mantilla and a red rose* in her hair. She was picking oat soft melodies on a golden narp. Dick had reserved the table and ordered the dinner. Excited and worried as she was. Eve realized that she was hungry. She remembered now that she bad eaten nothing sines breakfast. She sipped the mushroom soup, with. its unusual piquancy of flavor, for which the inn was famous and ate with relish the baked squab which was another specialty of the place. When the dessert arrived—frozen cream molded in the form of mission bells—she looked thoughtfully across the table at Dick. "Our wedding bells, Dick," she smiled wistfully. "I like it this way," he said. "Without all tbe fuss and excitement. Just we two ia a world by ourselves." • "™y our—'ves ... by ourselves," Eve murmured. Then she took the plunge.

To set her free, tUe jury of middle-aged Essex county tradesmen and artisians had rejected two alternative verdicts — first degree murder, carrying a mandatory penalty of death in,the electricy chair; and second degree murder, de- manding'life imprisonment. They refused to accept the government's hypothesis that Mrs. II. Costello, lured by the love of Edward J. McMahon, young married policeman, and $5,000 life insurance, fed her husband a cyanide- filled capsule under the pretense of giving him a sleeping powder. They preferred to believe, as an elaborate array of defense counsel contended, that Captain Costello, broken in health both mentally and physically, committed suicide; or that he accidentally Inhaled or swallowed some of the cyanide which his wife bought a few hours earlier "to clean ;. copper boiler." Mrs. Costello's personal plea, a 55-word speech delivered to the jury after both sides had completed their summations, may have contributed to the verdict. In it she reiterated her love for her husbaLd. and asked only that she be sent home to her children.

(in!)—NIRA stamps -were on sale' here Thursday for the first, time, in the nation, aside from those sold to Administrator Hugh E. Johnson In Washington early this week. The stamps, of which 400,000,000 have been printed, depict a farmer, a laborer, a businessman and a woman; indicative of the huge scope of the National Industrial Recovery Act. The town, Nira, was • named after Mrs. W. B; Bell, wife of Col. W. B. Bell, postmaster at Washington, la., long before there was need for a National Recovery act In fact, according to Washington county history, the town, of Nira was a product of prosperity, rather than of depression as Is the case of the .national law which also bears the name NIRA. The village, came Into existence thru , the ( . gen'e'rosity of a farmer, James H.' Lewis, who owned many acres of land surrounding the present site of the town. When it became apparent, that the Rock Island railroad planned a line thru southern Iowa, Lewis donated the railroad a certain amount of land for right-of-way in, return for which 'the railroad company provided a station where Lewis and- other farmers of the neighborhood could load their livestock and farm products. Immediately the town started to grow and itthad reached thd pro- )orlio«s of a fair-sized village before it had received « name. It be-' imry for establishment such .a move and provided a building. At. that time it was the custom for the postmaster in the county seat to have the privilege of naming new towns.. When this fell to Col. Bell, 'he immediately named the village after his wife. The little town continued to grow- and at one time there were more than 50 residence buildings in the town, several general stores, grain elevators and livestock loading equipment. Col. Bell watched the growth of the village named for his wife. Nira, and offered a gold dollar to the first baby girl born in the town who was named Nira. The gold dollar eventually was awarded Nira Moffitt, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Moffitt. Her present address is unknown. That there was considerable interest in naming of the new town is indicated in the following excerpt from the April 7, 1SSO, edition of the Washington, la., Press: "That town has a hard time getting uamed. It was 'Burrell, 1 'Lewiston,' 'Moorefield,' 'McGaugh- eyville,' 'Can-Is,' by turns, bat the postoffice department rejects them all and calls it 'Nira.' "It is fact building up and will soon have stores, depot, etc. A U. P. church and a bank are projected but no opera house, or beer sarden as yet. Wallace and Huskins have established a branch lumberyard there."
