What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

While the C7zeeho-Slovaks have been courageously and successfully carry- ing on the war agaInst the Bolshevik!, steps have been taken looking to the organizatkm of a Polish division un- der 'polish officers to wage the fight in Serbia westward to their father- land as integral units of the American army.

Eleven tons of bombs' were dropped on the airdromes at Longuyon, Rote Martintige and Bohm. French and Italian units co-operated with the American squadrons in car- rying out nine missions.

A breath of lieneysuckle blew in. Then, below, on the porch, she heard the uneasy move- ments of Prince. And he whined. \Oh poor Princey I • Ile doesn't know what's become of we,\ thought Carolyn May. dewnstairs, In the great kitchen, Amity Bose was stepping Mick and forth. from tuble to sink, from sink to dresser, front dresser to pantry. As the daylight fuded she lit the lamp which swung front the ceiling and gave light to all the room. It would have been Impossible for the wisest person to guess what were the thoughts In Aunty Rose's mind. A glad little yelp from the dog tied to the rail of the porch sounded sud- denly. Even Aunty Rose could not mistake that cry of welcome and she knew very little atinut dogs—to their credit, at least. She had heard no Aber suspicious sound, but now she _croesedihe room with firm tread and opened the porch door. Yes, irlittie white figure was down there hugging the whining mongrel. Carolyn May's tearful face was raised from Prince's rough neck. \Oh Aunty Itose! Oh, Aunty Rose!\ she sobbed. \I Just had to say good nieht to\ somebody. Edna's mother ;emit. and heard our prayers and tucked us into my bed after my papa and inamina went away. So it didn't seem co had. \But tonight—why! tonight there Isn't anybody cares whether I go to tied or not! But Prince! Prince, he knows just how—how empty I feel!\ \You would better come in now and Wash your face and hands again be- fore going to bed. That dog has been iismping them with his tongue. ' Sobbing, the little girl obeyed. Then she would have gone back up the stairs without a word had not Amity Bose spoken. \Come here, Carolyn May,\ she said Quite as sternly as before. The little girl approached her. The old lady gat In one of the straightest of the straight-backed chairs, her hands In her comfortable lap. The wet blue eyes were raised to her com- posed face timidly. \If you wish to say your prayers here, before going upstairs, you mtg. Carolyn May,\ she said. \Oh may I?\ gasped the little girl. She dropped her hands into Aunty Rose's lap. Somehow they found those larger, comforting hands and cuddled Into them as the little girl sank to her knees on the braided mat. If the simple \Now I lay me\ was familiar to Aunty Rose's ear from long ago she gave no sign. When the earnest little voice added to the for- mal supplication a desire for the bless- ing of \Uncle Joe and Aunty Rose\ the latter's countenance retained its composure. She asked a blessing upon all her friends, Including the Prices, and even Prince. Bet it was after that elle put the timid question to Aunty Rose that proved to be almost too much for that good woman's studied calm. \Aunty Rose, do . you tepoee I might ask God to bless my mamma and Pape, even If they are lost at sea? Somehow I don't think it would seem Se lonesome If I could keep that in vy prayer.\ _ CHAPTER III. \Well --She'll Be a Nuisance.\ Mr. Joseph Stagg, going down to his Store, past the home and carpenter shop of Jedidiah Parlow, at which he Ed not even look,, finally came to his leatInatIon In a very brown study. So disturbed had he been by the arrival Of his little niece that he forgot to luestion and cross-question young :.Thetwood Gormley regarding the pos- sible customers that had been in the store during his absence. \And I tell you what I think, moth - or,\ Chet said, with hls mouth full, at supper that evening. \I think her wining's going to bring about change. Yes, ma'am!\ Mrs. Gormley was a faded little tiomnn—n whlow—who went out sew: hug for better -to-do people In Sunrise Fore. She naturally thought her boy OlietwOoti a great deal smarter than Aber people thought him. \You knew, another,\ he said, on this evening of the arrival of Carolyn Pray, \I never have seen any great :lance to rises workin' for Mr. Joseph Eau.\ • \But ho plus you, Chet,\ his mother said anxiously. \Yep.

Thut ain't his way. But he don't seem to have a mite of interest In anything but Ids shop. Now, it seems to me, this little niece is 1/0t1Ild to wake him up.

Mr. Stagg sat In his back office poring over the /et - ter written by his brother -In-law's law- yer friend, a part of which read: From the above recital of farts you will plainly see, being a man of business your- self, that Mr. Cameron's financial affairs were in a much worse condition when he went away than he himself dreamed of. I immediately looked up the Stone - bridge Building and Lonn association. It le even more moribund than the papers state. The fifteen hundted dollars Mr. Cameron put into it from time to (true might just as well have been dropped into the sea. You know he had only his salary on the Morning Beacon. They were rather decent to him, when they saw his health breaking down, to offer hlm tho c)sanco of going to the Mediterranean aa Correspond- ent. He was to furnish articles on \The Debris of a World War\—storles of the peaceful sections of Europe which have to care for the human wrecks from the bat- tlefields. It rather cramped Mr. Cameron's Im- mediate resources for your sister to go with him, and he drew ahead on his ex- pense and salary account. I know that Mrs. Cameron feared to allow him to go alone across the ocean. Be was really in a bad way; but she proposed to come back immediately on the.

Of course the fiat Is here, and the fur- niture. If you do not care to come on to attend to the matter yourself, I will do the best I can to dispose of either or both. Mr. Cameron had paid a year's rest in advance—rather an unwise think, I thought—and the term has still ten months to run, lie did it so that his wife, on tier return from abroad, might have no worry on her mind.

There never was a lovelier place foe a little girl—to say nothing of a dog—. to piny in than the yard about the Stagg homestead; and this JCarolyo May confided to Aunty Rose one fore. noon after her arrival at The Cor- ners. Behind the house the yard sloped down to a broad, calmly flowing brook. Here the goose and duck pens were fenced off, for Aunty Rose would not allow the wetafooted fowl to wan- der at large, as did the other poultry. It writs difficult for Prince to learn that none of those feathered folk were to be molested. There was a wide -branching oak , tree on a knoll overlooking tho brook. Around Its trunk Uncle Joe had built a seat. Carolyn May found this a grand place to sit and dream, while Prince lay at her feet. • When they saw Aunty Rose In her sunbonnet going toward the fenced -In garden they both jumped up anti bounded down the slope after her. It was just here at the corner of the garden fence that Carolyn May had her first adventure. Prince, of course, disturbed the se- renity of the poultry. The hens went shrieking one way, the guinea fowl lifted up their voices In angry' chat- ter, the turkey hens Retarded to cover, but the turkey cock,, General Boli- var, ft big. white Holland fowl, was not to have his dignity disturbed and his courage Impugned by any four-. footed creature with waggish ears and the stump of a tall Carolyn's sunny disposition begins to have Its effect upon Aunty Rose, with results that are amazing to Uncle Joe.
