AN ARMY AND ITS ALLIES The Spanish rebellion drags along with the revolutionists depending, it seems, almost entirely upon black Moors from Africa and assistance from Italy and Germany to keep up a struggle forced upon an elected government of the Spanish republic. We do not know all the facts about the fighting in Spain but we do know that, when the war began, Spain had a government elected by the people. General Franco and the conservatives who launched the revolt are attempting to overthrow a government which had succeeded in overthrowing the opposition at the polls. It is pointed out by some observers that the revolt is one of the few rebellions engineered by the conservative people of any country. It is also stated that nearly the entire regular army of the republic went over to the rebels. Moreover, newspaper dispatches and pictures demonstrate clearly that the Moors, from Africa, are the backbone of the warriors attempting to overthrow the Spanish republic.

No marrying at sixteen, and three babies at twenty, for them. . . . Mrs. Sheriff Grieves would see. . . . There'd be a few changes in the Ladies Aid. . . . Christie sensed all that. She knew there was gold under the ground. The forty-niners hadn't taken it all. They'd barely scratched the surface, and then gone on leaving deserted mines, tumble-down shanties, sometimes whole towns, behind. The new people who had come in the last years people like the Platts, who had reclaimed old mining properties, and lived in cabins and shacks through the hot, sweltering daya of summer when flies clung like burrs to their screen doors and butter melted in the water-sprinkled burlap coolers, and the blustering cold days of winter, when the wind billowed under their little strips of carpet and linoleum were just "camping." Everyone of them planned on a house with plumbing, and electric lights, like the Coopers'. Everyone of them had a million dollar mine in the back yard. She was at home at the Piatt's. She knew every inch of the house. The "front room" with the horsehair chairs, and the folding bed, and the hard old sofa, with its two rose silk pillows, edged in gold lace. The parlor table where Mr. Piatt displayed specimens of gold flecked quartz, and the old fashioned phono changes around here well see who's the best people 'round Spanish Pass!" And up on the hill, in the big rambling house that work-worn, bitterly ambitions Mrs. Piatt so coveted, Christie Cooper was clinging to dusty, travel-stained old AdoH phus, laughing and crying all al once.

She lifted her head, looked into his big, leathery face in which thc shrewd, curiously light eyes were almost hidden under the wrinkled, drooping eyelids, and the ju.ting gray brows.
