First Methodist church, after an i I absence of two Sundays from his ' pulpit while he attended the Uniting conference of the Methodist churches In Kansas City, filled his pulpit at both hours Sunday. At the morning church hour and before an excellent congregation. Dr. Riley told of the dramatic Incidents In connection with the final meeting of the conference which was known as the "Declaration of Union," when the 900 delegates representing the three churches with upraised hands declared the union of the three churches into one as being legal and the words used by Bishop Moore when he declared the Methodist church Is one, "Long, live the Methodist church." Dr. Riley also paid a fine tribute to mothers In his morning sermon. At night highlights of the conference were given both by Dr. Riley and Boyce Martin, lay delegate of the church, who also attended the conference. Several pictures of some of the main events of the conference were on display at the night hour and much time was spent by those present In Inspecting these pictures at the close of; the talks. Special music was rendered by the choir at both hours and a brief church conference was held at night when delegates to the .•district conference that will be 'held at tho Eleventh Avenua Methodist church Tuesday, May 22, were elected. , Sunday school attendance was off with only 325 present, a decline as compared with last Sunday and last year. Thirty-four men heard Lonnle Powell teach the Brotherhood class; there were only 17 present in the Young Mens' Bible class, there being 62 present in the young adult department and 71 in the adult department. The start of the annual Golden Cross offering for hospital work was made. This will be resumed next Sunday. A beautiful memorial Mothers' Day program, was presented the church by one of the stewards In memory of his mother. The picture of Mrs. Ed MeCarver was chosen for the program as representing the typical mother of the church. Church night services will be held Wednesday night at 7:15 o'clock. F.

Chapter 13 Nola TOCELYN and Thorndyke met « Nola Cranston at the Santa Barbara airport It took them a few minutes to push through the surrounding circle of newspaper reporters and cameramen, for Nola Cranston was heiress to the Cranston shoe factory millions and everything she did was news. As the two RusseUs looked on she posed graciously on the steps of the airliner, a tall, elegant figure in tailored black, her shoulders draped with silver fox skins. From her hand-made shoes to her Park turban she registered assurance and sophistication. She was not beautiful: rather, unusual. "Striking" would fit her better than any other adjective. Her long hair. worn in a sleek, heavy knot on her neck, was bleached to the color of white-gold; her eyes, elongated and wisely mysterious, were very black; her nose was sharp and thin, its aquiline arrogance contradicted by a wide, generous mouth which parted often to show perfect rows of white teeth. Spying Thorn and Jocelyn, she beckoned to them with a slim scarlet-tipped hand which held a cigarette in a long ivory holder. "Come here, darlings!" she commanded. "I want you both in my pictures." Thorndyke, smug and pompous and proudly possessive, put his arm about Nola's waist and kissed her. His manner told the audience: "Thi* woman is my future wife. Aren't we a rare and handsome pair?" Later, with Nola wedged between them in the front seat of the cream-colored sedan, they all tried talking at once and had to subside, hopelessly, into laughter. "Boston is Impossible this time of year," Nola finally managed. "Melting snow, drizzling rain, and unbearably stuffy people. I made up my mind on the way out here that Pm not going back. Here I am and here I am going to stay until the day we trip down the aisle, Thorn! Since I announced to the papers last month that I was going to give some of my millions to help the worthy working classes, I've been driven crazy by cranks! I am going to give some of the money away, but first I'm going to decide how to benefit the most people the most permanently. For goodness' sake, don't let any of these nutty schemers get into Seacliff! I know I'll be safe there from the vast army of th.e unemployed!" Thorn's eyes met Jocelyn's "You tell her," Lyn said. "I can't talk about it without choking!" "Talk about what?" Nola asked turning curiously from one to the other. "Don't tell me anything has happened to Seacliff? Of course I know Grandmother Jocelyn is gone. Don't tell me her death revealed a skeleton in the ancestral closet?" "A skeleton would be simple to deal with," Thorn commented dryly. He went on to tell her aboul the will and the arrival of the Mack family. "We offered them money to leave," Jocelyn added aggrieved- ly, "but every one of them is as proud and stubborn as he is poor I never saw such people!" "We don't have to see them any more," Thorn reminded her. "Nola there's an eight-foot fence running the length of the place and each family stays on its own side!" 'Mean And Horrible' N OLA'S uncontrolled laughter pealed out "It sounds priceless! Seacliff with a fence down the middle! Anyhow, since I am neither a Russell nor a Mack, I shall interview both sides. Honestly, darlings, it's funny— don't look so tragic. Where's your sense o: humor? You make it look anc sound like a mountain feud! Don't worry so— the invaders will probably trek back to Texas one of these days and Seacliff can be easi- ixperienced eye, it would •ely a blue housedress. ly restored." Thorndyke brightened. "You might be right, Nola, At least it doesn't help matters any for Lyn and me to worry and fret. What do you say, Lyn? Let's agree to forget our neighbors and live our own lives! . . , Is Geoff coming down for dinner tonight?" "I think so. He said something about a shipment of three ponic; due this afternoon—" "Does he still talk nothing bu horses?" Nola groaned. "Geoff is a bore of the first waterl How do you bear up under it, Lyn? Oh. ; just thought of something—why don't you sell Seacliff to me? That will get rid of your foes and then you can buy it back from me after they've been driven from the promised land." Jocelyn fidgeted, "No can do Nola. Grandma took care of thai angle. I have to marry old Talbot's grandson before the estate can ever be sold." Nola whistled softly. "Is he too bad?" "He's impossible. A—a peasant He's mean and horrible!" "Come, now, he couldn't be that bad, Lyn." "Wait and see. Just wait and *t< or yourself!" "I will." Nola fitted a cigarette nto her holder, held the flame of her lighter to its end, and puffed reflectively. "I Just remembered hat neither of you mentioned Job's attitude toward the squat- era. What is Bob doing, anyhow?" Thorn's mouth pursed primly. JBob is more hindrance than help. He mingles with the Macks, sympathizes with tHem, eggs them on, and pretends that he actually likes them! He's making a fool of himself over the young widow and her "Aha! The plot thickens!" Nola's augh was indulgent "Bob was always a non-conformist; at least rom your point of view. Thorn. I have an idea he will give me some food advice about giving away my money." "I don't see why you say that," Thorn objected. "Bob has no respect for money or for the people who have it Are you serious, Nola. about giving it away?" "Of course I am. Twenty millions ... what can I do with it? 1 can't possibly spend it in a life"">*' lean give hall of it away and still have far too much for us and our children and grandchildren, my darling!" Thorn cleared hla throat nervously. "Then why not let me id- vise you, dear? You always said Grandma Jocelyn was shrewd and she made me trustee of the estate. t ve handled the money very well haven't I, Lyn?" "You've hung on to It very well!" Jocelyn retorted. "Oh, let's skip the whol. matter," Nola said in sudden exasperation. "I'd like a few«weeks of peace." ^ "Please don't misunderstand," Thorn began, signaling a left turn from the highway Into the grounds of Seacliff. "I—" "Shush," Nola commanded. "Did you arrange for a man to pick up my trunks at the station tomorrow morning? I have hardly a decent rag with me." Devastating!/ Good-Looklnf /~\N THE second morning after w her arrival, Nola arose very early. There was determination in her movements as she dressed with studied carelessness in a specially purchased cotton frock and low-heeled sandals. Her hair, which reached below her shoulders, she let hang in girlish disarray. Her basque-style frock, bought yesterday afternoon at an exclusive shop in Santa Barbara, was tremendously becoming; yet, totheinex— ! ' - •' seem mere: , So far, she had not been able to get one single look at any of the Mack family. Thorn and Lyn had seen to that Well, she was not accustomed to anyone curtailing her movements or knowing what she did. As a matter of fact she preferred taking the initiative into her own hands, wishing to meet the Macks in her own way. Now, on tiptoes, she stole down the back stairway past the built-on servants' quarters, and sauntered around the far end of the dividing fence. She approached a tall young man standing with his back to her. His thick black hair shone in the morning sunlight He appeared preoccupied in harnessing two horses to a plow. As Nola drew nearer she heard him singing softly in a rich baritone voice. A smile turned up the corners of .her mouth. "Good morning," the *ald. "Looks like it's going to be hot today." He finished buckling the last piece of harness before he turned. He looked at her dress; her smiling face; her loose blonde hair. He smiled. "Hello." Nola thought: "Lyn must be blind or crazy 1 The man is devastatingly good-looking!" She asked. "Aren't you young Talbot Mack?' 1 "Sure. And you?" "Nola Cranston. I'm visiting the Russells." "Oh." His smile disappeared. "Bob told me about you. You're the heiress from Boston who is going to marry Thorndyke. I hardly expected to see you on thit side of .the fence." "And why not?" she demanded. "I saw no 'Keep Off 1 signs." His eyes were guarded, distrustful. "Haven't you heard about people who live on the wrong side of the railroad tracks? I live on the wrong side of this fence." "Nonsense. There isn't any right and wrong side unless you believe there is. And I don't You sound as if you had an inferiority complex. What's the matter with you, anyhow? You're young and healthy and good to look at." "And poor as Job's turkey," he added. "And a farmer. 'Peasant' is the term I've had applied to me lately." "Which sounds like Thorn," Nola smiled. "Surely you pay no attention to him? He's really a darling but he doesn't realize the day of ancestor worship is past Don't tell me you haven't got a sense of humor? I think this whole darned business is the funniest gag I ever heard!" Tally met her sparkling dark eyes. A slow grin spread over his face. "Maybe you ore right Maybe I lost my sense of humor when I lost the last cotton crop in Texas." Continued tomorrow. (Copyright, It HI ADDITIONAL WAYS TO USE COTTON IN ALL WALKS OF LIKE FERTILIZER AND SUGAR BAGS WOULD CONSUME MUCH OF STAPLE News of County Home Demonstration Clubs COLLEGE STATION, May 15.— (Sp1.)—Use of cotton bags for 12 per cent of the 1937 fertilizer sales accounted for 19,000 bales of cotton, A carload of susar put up In cotton bags accounts for the production of 4 2-3 acres of average cotton land and gives work to 83 people. In 1938, America used 120,000 carloads of sugar. If It were all In cotton bags, It would have ment four months' work to 100,000 people and the crop from more than a half million acres of cotton. If each of the 503,000 farm families In Texas could have a now, 50 pound home-made cotton mattress—and most families need several new mattresses—It would mean the consumption of 50,000 bales of cotton in this state alone. Cotton bagging as a package for cotton bales, Introduced last year when It was used on 17,000 bales In Texas, is superior to jute and sisal bagging from the standpoint of durability and Is much preferred by spinners, who now have to comb jute and sisal fibers from the cotton. Use of cotton bagging, cotton rope for ties, and cotton patches would not only use up around 200,000 bales of cotton annually, but would reduce the gross weight of a bale of cotton by 20 pounds, and would thus effect a saving of several million dollars a year in freight and other . handling charges. These and similar examples were quoted in a letter sent to county agricultural and home demonstration agents and signed jointly by F. E. Llchto, cotton gin specialist, Mrs. Bernlce Claytor, home Improvement specialist, and Dora Ri Barnes, clothing specialist, all of the Texas A. and M. Extension service. The agents were urged to give their support In every possible way to the movement to Increase use of cotton.

"TUST watch 'em burn," is the advice smart smokers are giving I on cigarettes these days. At the right, aerial ace Everett White of die Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey circus proves that one leading cigarette burns slower than other brands. The famous star of the high trapeze, Ed Rooney, observes that the winning brand is C-A-M-E-L! Camel's big advantage is in its costlier tobaccos, expertly blended in a cigarette made to burn slowly, completely! Recently, a group oj scientists made this interesting laboratory test on a bigger scale. 16 of the largest-selling cigarette brands were tested impartially. CAMELS BURNED SLOWER THAN ANY OTHER BRAND TESTED-25% SLOWER THAN THE AVERAGE TIME FOR THE OTHER BRANDS. (Camels were remarkably consistent. Cigarettes of some brands smoked twice as fast as others right from the same pack,) IN THE SAME TEST, CAMELS HELD THEIR ASH FAR LONGER THAN THE AVERAGE TIME FOR ALL THE OTHER BRANDS. Camel is the cigarette of costlier tobaccos ... always slow-burning, cool, mild, with a delightful taste! Everyone watches Everett White, the daring aerlalist (center), intently, as Camels •win in his cigarette test. He remarks: "Camel smokers know Camels smoke COOLER and MILDER. And any smoker can see one reason why! Look how 1 much slower that Camel burns! And, say, notice how the Camel ash stays on!" MOKING I F you feel that life owes you a little more fun, try a cigarette made with costlier tobaccos.,,a, Camel! See how Camel's delightful fragrance and taste can brighten you up. Camels are amazingly mild. Cool... easy on your throat...really a matchless blend. Camels have more tobacco by weight than the average of the 15 other brands tested. Besides, Camels burn slower than any oj those other brands. And by burning 25% slower than the average of the 15 other oj the largest-selling brands, Camels give you the equivalent of 5 extra smokes per pack! Camels give you even more for your money \vhen you count in Camel's finer, more expensive tobaccos, Buy shrewdly! Buy Camels.. .America's first choice for a luxury smoke every smoker can afford!
