She hnd Father and me, Annabelle, and the l\vo Forbeses. It was almost impossible to squeeze seven around the small gate-legged table in the silling-room, the table with the wobbly leg that Cliarme had wangled out of Mrs. Burgess, but Flora managed it somehow, I remember th;it \vc had a steak, a big, thick, luscious steak, because Flora laughed that the steak was 5ier Christmas present to Bob; the poor darling so loved steak, and she iod him most of the time on chopped meat and stews. The flat was gay with holly and greens, and there was a tiny tree on the table. Flora wore the pale yellow.frock she had made for my supper dance, with a small, frilly apron and a blue bow in her hair. Father told her she looked good enough to cat. Flora said: "In this old dress? You know 1 look a irighl." Bob frowned, and Flora added quickly, and I thought a trifle maliciously: 'But I honestly don't care, since Bobby actually prefers me in old :lothes. If I wore rags he'd think I was beautiful." There was a sense of strain during the entire evening. I think ;hat Flora was upset because Annabelle had a new dress, a gleaming bronze satin with touches of gold embroidery. I told myself that Flora was tired, that she had overworked on the dinner. At our places were funny little gifts, elaborately wrapped and tied. Cousin Sam's, I remember, was a minute Santa Clans. When he unwrapped it, Flora cried out (hat Sam had been n regular Santa Clans to her and Bob by giving them that wonderful stove. She said she always had hated to cook and never had cooked until she got married. Now that she had to get her own and Bob's meals, three times a day, 365 days a yenr, she never could have borne it without that miraculous stove, which practically did the work all by its darling self. Bob glowered, and Cousin Sam looked uncomfortable. ',Ve were all ill at ease. * * * T SAW little of Flora that vacation except at parties, as she spent most of her time at her mother's. I noticed that she had two new evening dresses, a white lace and a gold-ribbed silk. Of course I did not know that she had bought the dresses in Binghamton on credit. Neither did Bob know until three months later, when the Binghamton store sent him a nasty note. Bob was furious. Flora had led him to believe that she had made the dresses with Annabelle's help at the cost of a dollar or two, and Flora was aggrieved that he took it as a matter of course that she should wear out her old clothes. They had a dreadful and wounding quarrel. » Bob nyuiaged somehow to pay for the dresses, but he sternly cfiarie account and pay^ f ot every thing'in cash. &ob turnSa oVef practically all his salary to Flora' to manage as best she could.- .That, of course, was a mistake. As we said in Otsego, Flora had butter fingers. She soon r&opened her charge accounts on the sly. What else could she do? she later said in excuse. They had to eat. By Thursoay, sometimes Wednesday, the pittance Bob gave her was all gone. Bobby was a dear, but an unreasonable dear. He expected miracles. It never worried Bob that his own wife had holes in her shoes and no proper winter coat, but he would have a fit i* he was a minute late with his allowance to his mother. Flora claimed to be so unhappy that she sometimes prayed she might die. !|! l!t * T SHALL hurry over the rest, because it hurts me to write it, The marriage lasted just a year. They quarreled, made up, and went on 1 ike that until Bob took to drinking and lost his job. Flora managed to sublet the little flat, furnished for $30 a month and went home to her mother, while Bob returned to Mrs. Finneran; This was the July of 1914. Father and I were in Europe, ending the three months' tour that was my graduation present. We spent most of July in England and Scotland. On August first we were in York. I \va6 wakened very early in the morning of August second by the sound of a drum. I got up and went to the window. Down the street came a white-haired old man in a corked hat who was beating on a drum. "Wake up, ya Englishmen. War! War! War!" he cried over and. over in a loud voice. "Wake up, ye Englishmen. War! War! War!" It never occurred to me that a European war could in any way concern Flora and Bob. How could it? They were 3000 miles away But when Father and I finally got home in the autumn I learner,' that Bob Finneran had gone tc Canada and enlisted in the Canadian army. Flora was visiting ir New Jersey and was suing ther« for a divorce on the grounds o: desertion and non-support. (To Be Continued) SitMB 6LA!*ei§ ftaflsttllfe. .ana I/.

Community Property Law Draws People From Arkansas to Texas WASHINGTON—i.fl'i—People who' otherwise would live in Arkansas, sr.ys Senator Fulbright (D-Ark.) are moving across the line into Texas to enjoy ,the benefits of the community property system. Texas community property laws permit'a husband and wife to split their family eartiinti.s lor federal income tax purpon'.s and thus pay a lower tax. The Arkansas senator, backing an unsuccessful effort to extend the same benefit to nil states, said the Ti xiis'-Arkansas line runs down the middle of the main street of Tr-xar- kfiiia but that "rceenlly the town has begun to be lopsided." Then he .'pad a li-tter from a "Icacliuu attorney in Texarkuna," whan ho did not, identify, which said: "Here on the Texas-Arkansas line- we are . losing many valuable cilixen.s because they go across the 1 state lino and buy themseives a home on the dii'feience they would pav in income tax. "This makes real estate in Texas more valuable than in Arkansas, because the identical house will sell lor $1,000 to $3,000 more oil the Texas side." Congressman George Mahon of Lubbock. member of the House Military Appropriations subcommittee, is the Air Corps defender against the Republican attack. The President recommended a $400,000,000 appropriation for mil; icary aircraft. The committee, over Mahon's protest, cut this figure 10 percent. Saying- the military aircraft industry must be kept active and ready i'or any emergency, he declared : "My view is that we've been talking loud and big, while carrying an increasingly smaller stick. "I don't want us to be caught start and unable to back our position. The language our future enemies understand is force." riculturnl Department Appropriation bill: Rep. Olin E. Tugne, College Station: "The farmers' economic po- fitior. undoubtedly is better than in the 1935-39 period and I am sure we are all glad that it is. . . .But his apparent financial condition must be partly discounted by the tact that he has yet to replace much of his farm equipment, the production of which was curtailed during- the war period." Rep. J. M. Combs. Beaumont: "In traveling over our district I have bcon amassed at the development rural electrification has brought to the rural areas of deep West Texas." Rep. Bob Poage, Waco: "By July 1 the REA uxpeets to have applications in excess of $370,000,000. If we appropriate all of the money that is provided here, we will be .short probably forty-five of fifty million dollars on the first of July of being able to take care of the applications already pending." Rep. Gene Worley, Shamrock; "For the \volfare of American agriculture and of the whcle nation, I sincerely hope that the Republican party will not allow their inheritance of a sound and prosperous agricultural situation to be frittered away. . . . "The legislative responsibility of the majority party cannot be" ali- bied or escaped.
