So runs the advice given to President Roosevelt by his business forecasters. That little fnct is certainly something for exponents of American isolation to .take into account. True it is thnt the oceans are wide nnd that no nation has any designs on the territory of the continental United States.

The menace of-the-accident is constantly with us. One of the readers of this column has just written me telling about a trip- that he took this summer and the troubles that he had. First he was exposed to poison ivy. No one in the group had the slightest idea of what to do about the matter when the. inflammation followed contact with the ivy plant. The pet dog, which accompanied his wife, got into a fight with a wandering mongrel. In trying to separate the dogs, the hands of my correspondent were torn so that blood was drawn. His wife sprained her ankle in stepping over a log. Innumerable accident of a similar character can happen to anyone. These come tomlnd: The celluloid comb on which a child was playing a tune broke into flames and set fire to the child's clothing. A bridge player who had bid and made a grand slam got so excited that he leaped suddenly from his chair and dislocated his shhoulder. A workman knocked on the door of the boss' office at the precise moment that a man on the other side drove a nail through the panel into the knockers fingers. A child choked on an all-day sucker when she fell while running with it m her mouth. A man ran his motor car into the side of a viaduct, and the car with its occupants dropped 22 feet to the railroad racks below. The train which came promptly demolished the car. It would s«em almost impossible to prevent every accident yet the trail of eevnts leading to most serious accidents indicates that somewhere along the line there lay some carelessness. Prevention is worth while from every possible point of view. However, we must not only prevent accidents. The in telligent person knows what to do when an accident occurs. Just a little knowledge of first aid may make all the difference between pemanent disability and even between life and death. How many people are regularly injured as the result of temeiidous trifles? Almost every one of us has .seen tho account of a person who stuck his finger with a pin, needle, or a thorn, or cut. it with a piece of paper. A little later serious infection set in and death followed. There are certain things that ought to be done in every such accident. Never use strong carbolic acid, bich- loride of mercury, or any antiseptic that is too strong, because the damage done by the antiseptic may be worse than the injury itself Dcn't attempt to suck out the poison by using the mouth for that purpose. The mouth may put in more germs tha nit takes out. It is much better to wipe off the blood with a piece of sterlizied bandage, and wash the injured part clean with soap and water. Apply either ordinary tincture of iodine, mercurochrome, mctaphen, or s-ome of the other intiseptics that have been approved, and cover the area with some of the prepared sterlized bandages that are now available in every drug store for first aid use The slightest signs of increased redness around the injury, and particularly lines of redness raiating away, indicate infection; a doctor should give the wound hi.s attention at once. Every home should have a first aid package containing sterilized bandage and cotton, mild antiseptics, adhesive paster, and prepared bandages the children on the sidewalk. The street is as dangerous as a railroad, I have kept to cars, as they are the big headline of today, ut there ure other things. I don't need to tell you about them. You know. Never under any circumstances should a boy or girl of any age go with a stranger. No matter how plausible the invitation. This ought to be part of every child's daily catechism. He must not go into a store with a stranger. And unless he knows the driver well, accept no lifts even in a rainstorm. A total of 19,234 Americans .arrived in the United Kingdom during July of which 18,456 were on vacation and 778 on business. A Book a Day By Bruc* Catton The Powers WHO Latin America ..

There were two wide streets to cross and a double entry to a. gas station. Could you depend on his six years of wisdom to keep him alive? Would he forget one day ahd not notice the bread wagon turning the corner behind him? Then gradually your fears subsided •You were content to say ecah morning when you kissed him goodbye, "Look put /or the cars, dear," And hed say "Yea/" It grew to be a matter of form Now,Although there is always danger, I think I'll say this.- Probably fewer children are hurt on their way to and from school than during play afterward. They develop a certain canniness about crossings. It gets to be a habit, looking both ways and waiting for openings. When danger point sare fixed in the mind, a sort of reflex caution guides all of us The big chance of a child being taken un- place of caution, such ea being late. aware* is when another fear lakes the and do it in a hurry. Here i.s the truth about children. They are always in more danger when they play than at any other time. Off guard they become almost utterly irresponsible. There is the bal Hhat rolls out into the street. Bob turns t ojeer at Harry that he couldn't catch a baseball with a basket, and doesn't see swift doom approaching.

Tiilt VIIWH to lu-lu her until the end. CHAPTER VII ALMOST three hours later, just as the little coupe was crossing the north city limits, Myrna awakened on Anne's shoulder. The dawn was breaking into full day, and the spirits of the trio rose with the sun. The black hours in and near that hillside shack seemed to Tait like a bad dream. He turned to Myrna. "Feeling better?" "Yes ... a little." "Anne and I have decided you should sleep some more, though— in my apartment. Another 20 minutes and we'll be there." But when Tait arrived at his apartment building f?e decided that caution would be the better part of valor. Instead of parking near the entrance way, he drove around to the alley. "I'm going up and have a look. It may be that Dannie Feeley's got suspicious and has someone waiting for my return. You girls sit tight here in the car." He grinned at Myrna. "And I expect to find you here when I get back." She managed to return a smile. "I'll be here," she said. Tait hurried up the back stair| vay of the apartment, slowing down only when he reached his floor. Quietly he opened the door from the back landing into the long hall. To his relief, no patrol- ing stranger was in sight. Nevertheless he went down the hallway to listen before his door. * * * OUDDENLY he stopped. The door of his apartment was slightly Tentatively he pushed it open and looked inside—and was emazed to see, seated in his one easy chair, Harris Rogers. "Well!" he tried to keep the anger from his voice. "You're an early—shall we say an early caller?" gers got up, shj'ugging his shoulders and straightening his collar. "Better call me a guest, Tait. The fact is, I've been here all'night." He smiled, not unpleasantly. "You see, I came last night. You hadn't arrived, and I persuaded the janitor that I was a friend of yours. I hope I didn't exaggerate, Tait." "It's not necessary to exaggerate with the janitor if: you've a $5 bill," Tait said. "I really expected that you'd return—and then somehow I fell asleep in that very comfortable chair. I hope you'll forgive me, But under all the circumstances ..." His voice trailed off, and he made a gesture which said that Tait would unquestionably understand. "What can I do for you?" Tait was still standing. He was puzzled at Rogers' curious visit, was nervous about the two girls in the car. Suppose they grew disturbed at his long absence, and walked into the apartment to investigate? "I— I don't want to rush you, Rogers-. But the fact is, I've an early appointment." Again Rogers smiled. "I won't be long. Here's the point, Tait. I've known you for quito a while, and I've always liked you. Somehow I got the impression, down there at the Pacific Plaza la.st night, that you wore interested in this terrible business." "Interested? How do you mean?" "Well, curious, then. I can understand that. After all, you're a newspaper man by training You've been at the- finish of a lot of things like this. But this i.s one that I wouldn't get worried about, HPHE seemingly mild suggestion * startled Tait. "You—you're not giving me warning, are you?" "Of course not." Harris Rogers laughed disparagingly, "it's j us t a friendly tip. And, frankly, jfs for my sake as well as yours." "I see ..." Tail drew cigarots from his pockt-t and offered the pack to Rogers. Then, carelessly he closed the door into the hall Turning, he said, "Now we're getting somewhere. What's really on your mind?" "Just this. As you know, I managed Dombey himself—as well as The Swingateers. I'd like to see the band go on, both because it means a good spot for me, and because of—of Mrs. Dombey. Poor Lud is dead. I don't know who killed him. I'd like to get my hands on him—but I think it's more important to keep things going for the gii-i he loved. And I'm telling you, Tait, if they start investigating all over the plac* there'll be a bad mess of publicity. That wouldn't be good for either the girl or her business." "Her business?" "Of course you didn't know- but Dombey made her a partner in Swingateers. She's liable for the debts of a corporation, and there are plenty." Rogers held his palms upward. "I tried to control Lud, but he was impossible when he was on a spending spree. Never realized that the money couldn't last forever. But with luck, Tait, I can bring things into shape, keep Myrna from getting into a jness, and probably make her wealthy." Tait was silent a moment. Then: "I get the jdea. But I don't quite see how it would help to stop investigating Dombey's murder. I'm afraid that Dannie Feeley couldn't see your argument." "Naturally not. The police will keep on investigating. But it's a tough case. You know that. It may slide along for considerable lime." The photographer smiled. "In other words, you figure that the fewer who are 'interested,' as you put it a moment ago, the less chance of getting the reputation of Dombey and the band dirtied up." "That is it precisely. I thought you'd see it my way." * * * 'pAIT shook his head. "But I don't see it your way, Rogers. In the first place, the most logical suspect that the police have right now is Mrs. Dombey. Until they can get some leads elsewhere she's going to have a bad time. In the second place, I'm not at all certain that she's interested in the money you can make for her with Lud's reputation and his* band—" "Do you know her woll enough to be sure of that?" Rogers wanted to know. "It occurs to me that their acquaintance before marriage was rather short." Ignoring the remark, Tait proceeded: "In the third place, Rog* era, all I have is your word that Dombey's affairs are in a mess and that his past might not lopk well in print." 'And you doubt my word. Is that it?" "No—not just yet, at any rate. You might give some notion of what you mean and then I'll be glad to tell you whether I'm willing to believe it." Rogers' face darkened. "All right, Tait. I can tell you plenty ..." The manager of The Swing- ateers dropped indolently to the arm of the chair. "I think that when I'm finished you'll be ready to forget that Lud Dombey wa« killed."
