The fact that the huge government lending agency, which bailed out some of the nation's largest busi ness concerns, is not going to lose any money indicates this. The chairman of the RFC recently made a speech over the radio, in which he insisted that it is "certainly not in the best interest of our country that control of wealth, industry and credit be concentrated in a few hands." He thought that the continued struggle for corporate expansion in this country contains danger in that it puts "too much power" in too few hands and too many people in the employe class. Mr. Jones seems to have the right idea. The people of this country are somewhat afraid of "big business" and they have become convinced that it is dangerous. Moreover, whether everybody realizes it or not, the people of the United States have determined that if a few men are to have vast power in regards to wealth, industry and credit that they will elect the "few men." Later on, if thry misbehave, the people can elect somebody else in their place. come. He had new job, and he'd lose it if he took time off now. He About :sr, iiu-.m.bors of thu North.1 The A. F.

And Friday was the day after the funeral. It was only the promise of seeing him on Friday, that got her through that last day without screaming, jroing completely to pieces. The solemn muisic, the pompous ushers, the avalanche of flowers, the words of the clergyman who acted as if he were on the closest of terms with Dad and God, and certainly had never had even a speaking acquaintance with Dad. Aunt Nettie sobbed softly under her black widow's veil, and Adele and Isabella cried si, little, too. It seemed to Christie that hers was the only dry eye there. She had lost her father, she was desperately afraid cf facing the future without him . . . the future that she hadn't quite dared to think about . . . but she had no tears. Twice during the services Aunt Nettie looked at her reproachfully, and Christie knew that her conduct wasn't just right. She couldn't help it, though she couldn't cry. But after the funeral was over and they came back to the big white house on the knoll in Piedmont, Aunt Nettie ordered cinnamon toast and tea sent into the sun-room, and after she was rid of her black crepe, and her plump body was relaxed in a shell pink tea-gown, with cushions behind her and the tea table in front of her, she said: "Now, we've all been through a very sad experience, and we've lost a very, very dear one. But we all know that he wouldn't want us to Isabelle, DEAR, mother's talk-ingl" Isabelle turned another page of the thick, black book on her lap. "I'm listening." "Please, dear!

The freckles showed so, now that she was pale. Could anyone find her lovely? Would Gene? She pulled the smart little hat back the way the saleswoman in New York had Bhown her, slipped into the jacket of her expensive, beautifully fitted suit. At least she was smart looking, she'd learned bow to wear clothes. "I do look nicel" she thought almost happily.

It was the excitement, the strain of waiting. It would have been better to have met him at home that is, at Aunt Nettie's, or even at a hotel in Oakland. But he said he'd be in San Francisco Friday at 11:30, waiting at the corner of Powell anil Market. She was warm and out of breath when she got there, and of course he wasn't there, because she was so early. So she waited, standing well back against a drugstore window, to be out of the way. The cable car . . . where but in San Francisco do they have cable cars ? bumped down the hill to Market, turned around on its absurd turntable, clanged its bell, and bumped up the bill again. Up and down Market street the four parallel lines of surface cars whizzed ceaselessly. People jostled by her. Something within her said, "He isn't coming."

C. Herodotus ascribes the invention to the goddess Isis. Ale or beer was never used to any extent in Greece or Italy, partly owing to the abundance of wine there, but Xenoplion mentions it as being used among the inhabitants of Armenia, and the Gauls were also acquainted with it in early times.
