During our years of obMM'ViUio.ti uf the Hdniinistratioii of city government in BJytliovillc we'll admit'we've iviik'li- «l'soiiic hi'tlicT crude political'.mMiiwi- viTiiifr,'M>me amusing jind ;nrk\viird incidents and infrequently the exhibition of eonsidciitblc iicr.sunal enmity. Hut wlien we read of KODH- capers cut by flic 'dly'ujimdl uf our slate capital, Little Hock, liist Monday we 'lc- cidcd that -BlyUievillc, at least, has liad 1 men instead of children controlling" its mimk'ina! Kovcninieul. J'foV what could be more the action of the Little- ,Kocl< til'y council in changing tbc mliiie of Overman Park lo Vaiv Park? "Only a few moiUlis boforc (.lie co'onuil,' ''presniua- blytO lionor Uic mayor" while he WSIK away'oh a vacation, bad changed Xhc name of the'municipally owned park from' Fail Pai'k to Overman Park. So far as we know there' u';is no reahoii for the 'chanjfc except to pay triljule to' the ina.vw.' Then cam'e Little [Jock's recent, coii- trpvc/sy over' the pioposal' for b»b- liiWsjon of'a' cit!y charier inid a city • manager 'form of government. Mayor Overman sided witli Che advocates of the city manager form of 'government. A 'majority of the 'aldermen sUemi- onsly opposed thc'propopal. 'flic pro- posiil was decisively' b'c'alcn in a •ilie- ciaj election, Then came "r.etnlnilion." The ,council v liolding it.-j .In si rcj.;\i- lar' meeting' a*fler (lio elect ion, .dioveil through go\c)al measures (I6siguc\r .io onsl city employes a'p'pmnlcd hy the mayor and lo lake away ' From him. .some of tlie power he luul been exercising over certain : «ri"air.s. i'roljabl.v (he aldermen had reasonable explanations Tor Audi a'ctioH. Possibly they could meet Hie accusation of passing ".spite" legislation. • • ' Kill there appcar.s to be no defense for the council's action in ''taking back"-its tribute, paid-(lib mayor when a' municipally oinicd parK w'tts named in his honor'by the same council. From our viewpoint, '^«.\' tip here 'Tit northeast Arkansas, it .seems that the capital city aldermen have llioni- a very'ridiculous and childish role. To all intents and purpose.* Mayor Overman has been guilty of no crime against the 'city," the state 'or the'nation. He simply disagreed' with the council. ' • Therefore Ihe couneil, like a cliild- ish "Inijiftii giver," withdraws the "honor" it bestows. So with all th'eir shortcoming^ over the years, after all, we'll say our city council'hasn't displayed the childish demeanor of the 1 Little Hock '"city dads."

' CHAPTER XX ' JERRY and Cabcll Banks went lo " (ho bow where tho man 'with two names and two ways of speaU- ing stood holding the wheel, a massive man wifh an insolent face ;ind shifting eyes. The bi-ight scarl tied about his head gave a Latin fast to his crafty, handsome features, so that you thought o£ a Pirate of the Mediterranean Sea. Vel lie was not entirely Latin cither. There was in him the stubborn cruel look of the Anglo-Saxon who worships brute force. A half- breed man, carrying in his veins the worst traits of two races. •Terry asked, "Are \vc your only passengers?" Clille's eyes slid around, then focused again on a curve in the French shorn line. "No." He had read in Jerry's face some knowledge. "Who else besides its?" "An old dame. . , . French," he added. . .[erry and. Cabell exchanged swift glances. They were acting without plan. Step by step must rio .it. "We saw her at the cabin l>ort," Bimks stated. "It may surprise you lo know that, she's not French and not at all old. ... Or does it?" Jerry started to speak in the silence, hul Banks lifted a warning eyebrow. Jerry's impetuous handling oE the situation might be fatal. "No doubt this news surprises you, Monsieur- Clilte," Cabell repeated in French. "We have spoken with the lady. She tells us she is American, (he same us ourselves. She has asked us to see lier ashore." "She does?": said Clitic in French. His hand started to shift from the wheel to his bell, where a pistol hung, then desisted. His sliding eyes had, seen their pistols, drooping from their. hands with sort of lender carelessness. Not nnn ol his own men was v.'iihin hail. Jerry's nerves snapped. He could not endure Ibis-. French pat- .(er (hat lefl him in ignorance of what went on. He said to Clitte, "You've locked her in!" "Absenlminclcdly, .no doubt,' V'Hirrnured Cabell Banks.J He bc- lieved filial much more'- can be iono with .a man who has Hot lost nee. He watched -Clitle intently inrt saw Ins method airaosl work.

Ils ability to carry on Then came defiance. "What if I lave? It's my ship." Two pistols were raised n Jew nches and held.rigid. "The key to tlie cabin!" Cabell requested. 'Give it lo me and I'll go unlock ho door. You'll need lo stay at the wheel. My friend here will stay with you to keep you from being lonely." t * * 1EAN CLITTE, sometimes known "as John McGean, took from around his neck an iron key that lung on n chain and tossed it to Cabell Banks. He appeared not to lotico that Jerry Whitflcld's pistol still covered.him as Banks moved quickly off. The exigencies ol.a smuggler's life had no doubt taught him that dangerous games must be played quielly. lie \yould ,vait. ... Down in Ihc cabin Polly heard a key grate in the lock. She hoped it would be Jerry and feared it would be Clitte. Her quick wits told her lo be thankful for this compromise. The wirey, homely young man from Boston was bowing to her hi his:polished, impersonal way. "Put on your wig, Miss Chelsey." he said, quite like a parent telling a child to don its bib. ''Then follow me on deck." "Wait till 1 pick up. the dog. Arc you laking me lo Jerry, Mr. Banks?" . Cabell considered a moment. "Well, no, Miss Chelsey. He's at the wheel, standing his trick, you mighl say, with our brave skipper. You come wilh, me lo the rope ladder. I want you to be the first to leave tho.lugger.. .. Would you mind bending your pretty back and looking a little more ancient? . .That's il! Thank you. Lean on your slick very hard now. and follow me." Jerry, meanwhile, was, taking a more direct course with Clitte than Cabell Banks would have advised Strategy was as -unnatural, with him as was diplomacy. Tic did not find it in his nature lo play chess for Polly with this rascal. lie said, "Miss Chelsey's my sweetheart and we're going to be married. I'll kill anybody that makes a move to harm her." Clille did not reply. He was skilfully bringing the lugger in- lo a small, desolate-looking harbor where several fishing boats rode al anchor, and a few shacks lined tho shore. .To larboard of the lugger a large sloop of war could be seen passing the little harbor. Ho had beat it. He had, in fact, dodged through n sail-infested Channel all night,i'an'd with more adroitness than ;anbody .,b.irt. a -smuggler 'could, appreciate.' He' desired nothing :a> much noyy as a long drink of liquor and a rh'ancc lo yet liis cargo, ashore. Having drawn'lliese'conclusions, :he rascal, who -was two people, shrugged his-shoulders and saic! to Jerry >Vhllflcld, "You can take the voman ashore. I've got troubles- enough. I figgercd she was u.raE- ug Bourbon." * f * 2A1LS came down and Hie on. Ichor was dropped. .Clitic gave orders for the long boat to be lowered away wilh his;three passengers, the dog and the trunk in it. There was ;i great deal of showy joliteness on both sides; though :he New Englandcrs 1 eyes wore, watchful, and Jerry and Cabell still held their pistols caressingly* Even when shore was reached and the dory had gone back lo the ship there was no relaxing. The village, like Corly on the other side, had (he unwholesome air of furtive- life and lawlessness. Jerry said, "We'd best gel away from here before Ciiltc comes ashorn and drinks a lot of cognac. He'll think he's Napoleon, come sundown." Cabell, who spoke French almost as easily as he spoke English, engaged a rough cart to carry them to Calais, and when they had gained the cobbled streets of that ancient and legitimate port -cilj" they felt a vast relief. /They were ; 'safc in France" at last.. They were in a country that, like America, was al war with the English. The carl driver 1 .was surprised, when he turned around, (o find that the subdued old lady he had carried had become a laughing young woman with cropped brown curls: He was so intrigued, and puzzled that he slopped.his carl, to stare. Polly said lo Cabell, "1 want lo present him wilh Ihis wig. Maky- a proper speech for me, please,!' At which Cabell gravely made the. presentation and.declared in Parisian French: "From our Li Uic Grandmother lo yours, Monsieur, with, tho grati- ludc of ihree wayfaring hearts!" They went to an hotel ,thon, and Polly put on her .prettiest, dress for the .dinner of celebration .that Cabell. Banks-had ordered for. them in the .dining room which he taught them lo call the sallc a manger. Jerry allowed Polly but one glass of wine* saying a New England granny who has just regained her' youlh must <bc careful. But Polly needed no stimulant for her emotions.! Jerry's ardent eyes caressed and- Wooed her ; even while his sturdy gallantry 'protected her. In • this oasis where bliss and safely m£t, the lOvere and th'eir friend laughed 'at yester- 'day and talked 'of -'lomprrov^ not knowing that Ihe'greatest danger lay ahead. - ; .
