But at the ment those-matters are beside the point. ,The, really exciting thing is the fact that we are at last lto contemplate "such a laxv without quaking in our boots '"mattering" about Bolshevism. This scheme would have ed, like the very quintessence of radicalism a few years ||go*: today we are about .ready to accept it as a part of a "*~ program.vand so far it has drawn far less com^ the.f act-.that an American citizen can legally buy fa^glass of beer. • "r ** 'That change reflects a shift in public sentiment which is Almost too profoimd to be comprehended.

If you took all the apparatus of telepragh, telephone ami &jra<)}o in North America, says Proffessor Herrick, and com- it into a two-quart jar, you would still have an affair ilderingly intricate than the human brain. Is it any wonder that our specialists still have a great to learn about the way the mind operates? Some day, Professor Herrick, they will have a pretty clear idea the brain does its work; but it seems a safe bet that that a long way off. So They Say!

Because you can't get away with it. The Calahans aren't afraid to say what they think to anybody and I'm telling you right now I think you're the limit! You're the kind ot a girl who thinks It's smart to let a fellow get crazy over her and then give him the air. You don't want Jeff but you don't want anyone else to have him either.""But—!" Dolores stopped her. "Walt n minute," she said. "I'm not going to stop until I've finished. I'm not ashamed to admit I like Jeff myself and I tried \p make him fall for me. I'm not the only one, either. I didn't have a chance and neither did any of the others. Why? Because he's so wild about you be doesn't know we're on earth. Say, if you don't want him •why can't you'lay oTf? Give somebody else a chance, can't you?" Janet was staring at her. 'Do you mean you think Jeff'is in love with me?' 8 Dolores tossed ''fier head. "I'd be blind it I couldn't see that!" "Why, I thought— " "Yeah! You thought you'd play your little game. Play around with your blond Barrymore and let a swell guy like Jeff break bis heart!

"You menu—?" 1 'His. eyes qsked the question ah"d ihdrs-Vnrawei'ed;- There 'was a pause In wlfleh "the rattle of china " 'and' silverware and -'the steady hum*-of voices-beat in upon th'em. Jeff, said what 1 NIGHT, think Miss of you! -. -Good iligh-and-MiBhty Janet Hill!" Head in the air, with a quick whirl, she made her exit.t Janet turned toward the ^mirror.... Five j minutes later she was still-staring at her reflection there. I T was three days later. There was no softly lighted table with' flowers and gleaming -silver and an orchestra in the distance as there had been at Reigal's. This table stood in the bright midday glare of a window in a chain restaurant. Outside the sun was streaming down and the Saturday crowd filled the sidewalk. Jeff Grant said to the girl who sat facing him. "This is a flue place to stage a party!" "But I like it!" Janet told him. "The food's good and I always have liked to come here." !'Wcll, it's o. k. with me if it suits you." He turned quickly as a waitress bearing a heavily loaded tray barely dodged hia arm. "Looks as though everyone) In Lancaster were eating here today." "That's one think I like about it. I miss seeing crowds." Jeff laughed. "Crowds! Say, I've seen all the crowds I want for a while! New York was a nightmare. All right, I suppose, .if you're used to it but, believe me, I was glad to get buck to Lancaster." Janet smiled, "Jeff," she said, "do you think it's hard for a young man to get a chance in business nowadays?" "That's a funny question to ask. You mean a Job'i" "No, not a job. I mean a chance to get ahead. To show what lie can do after be gets the Job." "If a fellow's smart enough to make use ot the chances that come his way he doesn't have to worry I guess. There are plenty of chances—seeing them and making the most ot them is what takes the brains. What in the dickens made you think of that?" "Oh—just something. I've got another funny question to ask, too. Will you tell me the truth?" "Maybe, Have to hear what it Is first." The girl's eyes met his directly. "Will you tell me," Janet said slowly, "why you gave that purse we bought to Dolores Calahan?" A dark flush rose slowly in Jeff's cheeks. "Had to get rid ot it," he said. "You didn't want it." "Then you didn't buy it—because you were in love with her?" "In love with Dolores?" he asked, astonished. "Say, for Lord sake—" The words were In sharp laughter. "Not in a hundred thousand years! Say, that's the craziest one yet. What's this all about, Janet?" She wasn't looking at him. "I just thought you were, that's all," she said. "But why on earth—?'* v'j * » * .CHE met his eyes again.

"Lunclves can wait!" lie said.- i "This-.ia-important!" He steered! '4ier through the narrow aisle to-, ward the door, On the sidewalk outside he signalled a cab. "But where are you going?" Janet asked. "You'll see." They stepped Inside the cab. "J.ust head for the park," Jeff told the driver. "And keep going." The cab started oft with a jolt. Quite naturally Jeff's arm slipped about the girl's waist. -Quite naturally Ma cheek brushed the velvet softness of hers. "Janet," he said huskily, "-haven't you known you're the only girl in the world I care about? There never has been any other. Didn't you know it was you and nobody -else but you all the time?" •» » » TTEH eyes were pools of happi- •*••••. ness. "I—I thought it was Dolores," she told him. "And 1 thought I loved Itolf but I found out 1 didn't. I've never really loved him. It was tho person I thought he was that I cared about. Hole wasn't like that really." "You're sure, dear?" "Sure!" "Oh, you darling!" His arms tightened about her. "Janet, you're so sweet. So-t-so wonderful!" His lips found .hers and all at ,once the world became miraculous and breathless and beautiful. The miracle ot Jeff's arms and Jeff's kisses. The miracle of the girl and the Intoxicating sweetness o£ her. The miracle oC youth and love and two hearts beating against each other. There were kisses on her eyelids now, her cheeks, her hair. "How soon will you marry me!" Jeff demanded. "This afternoon?" She laughed. "I've promised to stay with Mrs. Curtis until Betty comes home. It couldn't be before that." ' "When is she coming?" 'f!•••!•'.«'• "A week from Tuesday." "Then that's our wedding day! I'm only making 550 u week and we won't have much but we'll get along. In another year I can get another raise. And I'm going to do everything in the world to make you happy. I've got $500 in the bank—" "Five hundred dollars! Ob, Jeff, we'll be rich!" "I will." he said. "With you I'd be rich if I didn't have a cent. Oh, Janet, didn't you know all along—?" He stopped suddenly. "There's something I forgot," be added. "What?" "Something important. I forgot to say, Janet, I love you. More than anything or everything in the world! 1 love you, darling. I love you!" Her cheek was against hia. She put 0 band up and drew bis face closer. "And I love you." sbe said. "Oh, Jeff, tell me again!" He told ber lo a manner completely convincing. BY ftttUCP CATTON Unless yotif knowledge is more'ex- tensive than that of your reviewer, the nnme of Cabeza tie Vaca 'means absolutely nothing to you. But it seems that he was n valiant conquistador of old 'Spain, he was the first man to cross the North American continent from Atlantic to,Pacific, nnd his life story makes one of the grandest adventure tales in existence. Morris -Bishop tells that story in "The Odyssey of Cnbeza dc Vaca." De Vaca came to the new world, ns tho otherr '"'1, to'find gold. He was executive officer for Narvncz on a trip into Florida, where a golden city was reputed to ba hidden in the wilderness. The explorers found no gold and (lie expedition dissolved. A handful of survivors. Including de Vaca, crept along the seacoast all the way to the present site of Galvcston, Texas. There they were captured by Indians; and after many years of unimaginable hardships, de Vaca and two companions tramped across Mexico to the Pacific, reached a Spanish fcttlement. and got back to civilization. All in all. their trip was one of the most astounding in all history. De VaCa fell on evil days, after Hint, He led an expedition to South America, founded the city of Asuncion, sought gold in the terrible Gran Chaco; but he had the quaint notion that: the Indians ought to be treated with decent knicllincss, and his turbulent' followers deposed him. sent him; back to Spain in chains and caused him to end his days in poverty and disgrace.

Panic of 1857 Just as the panic of 1857 broke, Junius sent John Picrpont back to America to take a clerkship with Duncan, Sherman and Co., the American correspondents of Pcabody. There John Picrpont learned bookkeeping thoroughly, and saw the havoc of a panic. He never forgot either. Duncan, 'Sherman and Co., faded out in the panic of 1857, and a new firm of Diibucy, Morgan and Co., took its place. France was an empire then, Germany a motley array of small states, America's great west crossed only by prairie-schooner. The new firm was moderately successful in foreign exchange and the sale of securities. In 1861, when north and south were coming to grips, came a nasty little deal which was repeatedly thrown in J.-P. Morgan's face the rest of his life. Two men bought 5000 condemned carbines from the government for $3.50 each, and immediately resold them for $22 each to General Fremont for his Western Army. Tile carbines were useless and dangerous, and lawsuits resulted. It developed that Morgan's money had been used by the speculators in swinging the deal. It is likely that from Germany was expressed by Avery Brundagc. president of the American Olympic Committee, in a letter received here. Writing to K. A. Miller, managing editor of the Jewish Tunes, a Baltimore publication, Brundagc said it was his "personal, but unofficial 'opinion" that the games "will not be held in any country where thprc will be interference with the fundamental Olympic theory of equality of all races."
