NOLAtf leaned back In the •^ creaking swivel chair and knocked the ashes from his pipe "I'm firing you for six months Dr. Mitchell. Don't argue. You're too useful aroxmd here to take chances with." "You mean I was." "Are. You take things too hard You've let this Benny Singer, thing flatten you out." "I think I'll go to Europe, sir Zurich—" "More work? Well, if that's what you want. Right away?" "Yes." "Free as that?" Dr. Nolan smiled, but he looked gravely after Parris as the door closed. He had been struck from the beginning by the peculiar solitariness of this hard-working young man. Parris decided he'd look up Anna in Dusseldorf. Maybe Herr Berdorff in Bavaria. He could do exactly as he .pleased because it didn't make any difference to any. one. Tonight the asylum sounds, sudden screams and.shouts that thrust through the murmurous buildings, flicked his nerves like a lash. He walked slowly down to see Drake and Randy. Drake had a lapboard across the bed and the wide table beside it was covered with papers. "Business this time of night?" "We're starting a building and loan association, Parris." Randy was excited. "We're putting you in as silent partner. You don't have to do anything, but we want it fixed up properly—legally." "Still talking about that Tower money?" "Please, Parris—" Randy's expression was intent. Her eyes were telling him that he must consent, that this was final compensation, to Drake, for the money Parris had given them. "All right. Fix it any way you want to. I don't know the first thing about business of any kind." He told them that Dr. Nolan had- insisted on a vacation. "Are you going to be away long?" Drake's voice came hesitatingly. "Dr. Nolan says six months." "Gee, I'm glad for you." Parris looked curiously at Drake, and then at Randy. He wanted very much to know if it mattered to them whether he went or stayed. Back at the hospital gate, he circled the grounds and came out on Carrier street. In the second story room of a house at the end of the block there was a bright light Vera Lichinsky sat at the window her arms resting on the sash Moonlight fell full on her face and whitened it to a stoney pallor. She was staring fixedly at the huge building facing her—the gloomy building that seemed even to Parris to crouch among the tall trees and to wait. # * * PARRIS returned just In time to meet an early, disagreeable winter. The town was drab and shabby-looking. He shuddered with distaste as he viewed it. His work at the hospital was waiting, the entire staff rejoicing over the state's appropriation for extensive new buildings. A huge tract of land had been bought for a farm and vegetable garden. Dr. Nolan was full of plans. He was dressing one evening when his Negro houseboy came in and laid a copy of The Evening Chronicle on the table. Parris glanced at it and saw a heavy, slack headline — Asylum Doctor Makes Fortune Out of Asylum Deal. The second headline, scarcely smaller than the first, said, It Pays to Be on the Inside. "Dr. Parris Mitchell, staff physician at the State Hospital for the Insane, and the silent partner of Drake McHugh, real estate deal- 2r, realized a cool one hundred :housand dollars on the purchase of the old St. George tract recently acquired by the state for the improvement of hospital facilities. It appears that this plan for expansion of the hospital has been afoot or some time. "Mr. Fulmer Green, elected this >ast November to the legislature, has promised that an investigation will be made." Parris laid the paper before Dr. Nolan. "Have you seen this, sir?" "Yes, I have." "There's no truth in this, Dr. Nolan. I mean—if Drake McHugh put this through it was entirely without my knowledge." " Parris related in detail the story if his friendship with Drake, the Jift or loan of the Tower money, he slow rehabilitation of Drake hrough being made to feel im- Mi-tant and successful, and then the conversation with Drake and "landy just before Parris left for lurope. "I signed some sort of papers, lower of attorney among them. I lad never heard of the proposed purchase of this land before I left, net J^knowv that they.—I: suppose Copyright 1940 NBA Service Ino I have to say 'we'—.that We didn't own it when I left." m "Here's the story, Dr. Mitchell.' The suggestion that we attempt this purchase and expansion was made by Senator Depass. You were already in Europe—had been there for a month or more. I inquired right away about this prop- . erty. We had actually talked ones ! or twice to the St. George brothers ; long ago about this purchase, but .' they wanted too much money. ' After the estate was being settled . I thought of it again, but I never mentioned it to anyone. Senator Depass acted on his own initiative. Your friend Drake McHugh bought the place up even before Senator Depass came to see me." "What about the price?" "It was appraised and the price found reasonable. There's something behind this, of course. Has anybody on that paper got a grudge against you for anything at all?" B "Not that I know of. I haven't many friends, that's a fact, but I thought I had no enemies at all." "You know this—this, what's his name?—Fulmer Green?" The undertone of irony and bitterness was strange and surprising coming from Dr. Nolan. "Braggart, bully, coward, and liar. He made a circus out of the Singer trial and hanged the boy to enhance his position as prosecuting attorney." "Queer, isn't it?" "Dr. Nolan, you gave me my post here—pretty much on faith. You've made it an interesting one for me—I hate to make any kind of trouble for you." "Stuff. Gave you your post because we had a first-rate report on you from Seiss in Vienna. You're a good man at your job. Trouble! Fiddlesticks." "What shall we do?" "Go on as before. I've got some influence in the board and in the legislature." "I don't like publicity." "Well, you're not the kind that'll 10 through this world without it. You might as well get used to the idea. You're sort of conspicuous, n a quiet way!" Dr. Nolan laughed, and Parris smiled slightly. "Well, well, if you don't mind, :'ll just use you for bait for a while. I want to know what's be- lind this. There's something. I think Wardlaw, who runs this japer, is a skunk. You'll see that Wiles Jackson will write a very different piece about it." »(To Be Continued)'-' * > almost always carries the germs of the angular leaf spot disease, and huge numbers of spores of sedling blight and boll rotting fungi.

Society Among the Prescott people attending the races in Hot Springs Wednesday Rases are practically unknown, and that enormous losses are caused by smuts of wheat, oats, and barley. When disease-free seed or disease resistant varieties are not obtainable, the county agent recommended sed treatment as the simplest and cheapest method of controlling these diseases. Costs for treating cotton seed are around 10 cents a bushel, varying somewhat with the amount of sed to be treated. Cereal treatments cost about 2 to 3 cents per bushel. Treating equlptment can be built on the farm using an old oil barrel. Fof treating cotton seed, the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture recommends ethyl mercury cloride dust, known as "2 per cent Ceresan." Ethyl mercury phosphate dust, known as "New Improved Cere- ian," is slightly cheaper, but is recommended only for large scale treat- ers who are equipted with dust-catching apparatus, New Improved Ceresan is also used for treating wheat, oats, bailey and sorghum. of higher learning in the world. ••-«» Mind Your Manners Test your knowledge oj correct social usage by answering the following questions, then checking against the authoritative answers below: 1.
