Gordon fervently wished he had. But he was unarmed. While his eyes guested for a weapon he played for time. "You can't get away with this, you know. The United States government la back of me. It's known I left the 'Willow Creek camp. I'll be traced here." Through Gordon's mind there flashed n word of advice once given him by a professional prizefighter: "If you get in a rough house, don't wait for the other fellow to hit first" They were crouching for the attack. (In another moment they would be upon Hiim. Almost with one motion he stooped, snatched up by the leg a .heavy sfool, and sprang to the bed upon which he had been sitting. The four men closed with him in a rush. They came at him low, their heads protected by uplifted arms. His jmemory brought to him a picture of (the whitewashed gridiron of a football field, and in It he saw a vision of safety. The stool crashed down upon Big pill Macy's head. Gordon hurdled the jprumpllng figure, plunged between window sash. l i tie wondered as he spoke if he had better try to fling himself through the This was Diane's point ef view, and in time it became to a certain extent that of Sheba. One takes on the color of one's environment, and the girl from Drogheda knew in her heart that Meteetse and Colmac were no longer the real barriers that stood between her and the Alaskan. She had been disillusioned, saw him more clearly; and though she still recognized the quality of bigaess that set him apart, her spirit did not now do such complete homage to it More and more her thoughts contrasted him with another man. Macdonald did not need to be told that he had lost ground, but with the dogged determination that had carried him to success he refused to accept the verdict. She was a woman, therefore to be won. The habit of victory was so strong in him that he could see no alternative. The motor-ca- r picnic to the Willow Creek camp was a case in point. Sheba did not want to go, but she went. The picnic was a success. Macdonald was an outdoor man rather than a parlor one. He took charge of the luncheon, lit the fire, and cooked the coffee without the least waste of effort. In his shirt sleeves, the neck open at the throat, he looked the embodiment of masculine vigor. Diane could not help mentioninit to her cousin. "Isn't he a splendid human animal?" Sheba nodded. "He's wonderful." "If I were a little Irish colleen and he had done me the honor to care for me, I'd have fallen fathoms deep in love with him." The Irish colleen's eyes grew reflective. "Not if you had seen Peter first, Di. There's nothing reasonable about a girl, I do believe. She loves or else she just doesn't." Diane fired a question at her point-blan"Have you met your Peter? Is that why you hang back?" The color flamed into Sheba's face. j "Of course not. You do say the most outragepus things, Di." They had driven to Willow Creek oyer the river road. They returned by way of the hills. Macdonald drew up in front of a cabin to fill the radiator. He stood listening beside the car, the water bucket in his hand. Something unusual was going on Inside the house. There came the sound of a thud, of a groan, and then the crash of breaking glass. The whole window frame seemed to leap from the side of the house. The head and shoulders of a man projected through the broken glass. . The man swept himself free of the debris and started to un. Instantly he pulled up in his stride, as amazed to see those In the car as they were to see him. "Gordon !" cried Diane. Out of the house poured a rush of men. They too pulled up abruptly at sight of Macdonald and his guests. A sardonic mirth gleamed in the "Do you aleyes of the Scotsman. ways come out of a house through the wall, Mr. Elliot?" he asked.

Elihu Root, Secretary of War, in the Roosevelt Cabinet,in contrast to men of the Chamberlain and Hitchcock type, rises above the plane of politician, and stamps himself a statesman of the higher order in the following excerpt from his addresse to the Congress of National Defense at Chicago last week: "Let us be warned by poor Russia's presentfposition." "The Bolsheviki were very eloquent about peace, 'without annexations or indemnities,' and they filled the minds of Russian soldiers and workmen with the idea to suchjanlextent that they stopped fighting and making munitions, butcwhen they got to g they found what the leaders I'probablyi knew all along thatLGermany had no intention of making any such peace.

But the abolishing of these things has rarely been done except for the political purpose of fooling the people with loaded changes that have invariably made more useless expense, and other multiplied useless offices. There are many offices and many commise sions at Frankfort that are and useless; and that the last Legislature could have and should have abolished, carrying out the Governor's campaign pledges and promises. But instead, more were created, both by the Legislature under executive direction: and also, by ex ecutive authority without legis lative justification. We cannot see the necessity of passing a measure to legislate Mr. Eli Brown out oftthe fdt and sinecure job of Attorney for the Insurance Rating Board, when like Mr. John C. Duffy, who for more than tvo years at a salary of $3000. per year, as an assistant Attorney General, along with a number of others app Dinted outside of the number allotted by intent of law to the Attorney General's office, and who has accomplished nothing more than a futile and vicious attack upon the Kentucky Orphans Home, and management of the public school system of the"state, he (Mr. Brown) can at will be taken care of in a more lucrative sinecure. We are not much in dined to think that any offices will be abolished, and the people at this time, may not look for it. If "one or two uninfluential ones, politically considered, should be "permitted" to be abolished or absorbed, more than a sufficient number of new ones have already been created during this harmonious and smooth running session to offset the political loss. Fine-cur- 388 Private Murray had been sick with measles, and it was charged that he had been put to work before he had recovered. He suffered a relapse and was sent back to the base hospital. It was charged then that his father and brother were notified and came to Camp Zachary Taylor to see him. Permission was given to take the boy back home, and the father left for Glasgow to arrange for the thirty-mil- e drive. The allegations further state that during the night the other son wanted to see his brother, but permission was refused. The next morning the two brothers started home. According to the charges the young soldier was sent home dressed in pajamas and bareheaded. On November 23 he died at Glasgow, and physicians said his death was due to paralysis, spinal meningitis and double pneumonia.
