Personalis Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Sanders of THE Bl'SfNESS OUTLOOK. i The outlook for business, according to socalled experts, includes a let-down of possibly fifteen per cent in the first half of 1945, but the long-range outlook is considered promising. Some forecasters of economic trends take cognizance of the fact that the United States has replaced the British Empire as the dominant world leader, suggesting that business in this country will be profoundly affected by our participation in international affairs. While discounting the British Empire, the admonition is flashed to watch Russia. It should be apparent to all business men that there are factors in the country that carry the threat of wild inflation. Buying power, severely curtailed during the war, will be cut loose if controls are abandoned too quickly after victory. The statisticians tell us that the American people have saved tremendous sums of money which, if turned loose into the markets precipitately, might produce serious repercussions. SOLDIER PHILOSOPHER. '. We hasten to commend the thought, if not the language, of a British soldier, a veteran of the fighting in Africa, who, when asked what he thought about the American presidential election, answered: "Wot the bloody 'ell do I know about it?" The British veteran wearing decorations for his fighting past, had his views about the situation in which he found himself . He added : "There's bloody little future 'ere. People like'me get killed, but blokes what come through ought to have the right to decent homes, decent wages and money enough to put by to take care of our babies." The name of the British soldier is not given in the press dispatch, but he possesses the elements of a philosopher. There is something in his answer and in his viewpoint. Denver: Father Bernard J. Hubbard, famed "Glacier Priest," in pointing out that Russo-Japanese fishing treaties provide the Nips with weather stations: "If the United States is to do the fighting and financing of the world's wars, then it should also have cooperation on an equal basis from its Allies." asked that a request be published t j tended services at the Christian church in Clinton, Sunday night, i where thirteen members of his j church were baptized. j Joe SirHViass and Fr'i ('lark accompanied by the Men's Bible class took a trip to the county poor farm yesterday, teach mem- ber of the class took a gift for even Tire Sizes There are only seven different tire sizel used on 1941 passenger can.

Maud was on the other side of the sofa, her face a rigid, yellowish mask with two bright eyes that watched Chivery. Peter was there too, looking thoughtfully downward and, as I entered, Nicky turned away from the sofa abruptly, walked around the long desk and flung himself Into Conrad's armchair. Alexia saw me first, She paused as she turned to kick her short crimson train out of the way, looked at me anil said, "Here's the nurse. Did you find Craig? Where was he? What happened?" "He's ail right. He's in bed again. Miss Cable is with him." Maud glanced at me swiftly. Dr. Chivery got up a little awkwardly, dusted his knees absently and looked around in a bewildered way. "I I wasn't expecting Conrad's death just now," he said. "Well, I'm afraid it's all over." He glanced irresolutely at Maud. Nicky said, "It must have been quick. None of us knew he was having an attack." Claud Chivery passed an unsteady hand across his small chin. "He had some medicine," he said. "He always took it for these attacks. I suppose this time . . ." He leaned over the body and seemed to be searching about it and the sofa. "Well, it isn't here. The box of pills, I mean. It must have taken him so quickly he didn't have time to get the medicine. He's had this heart condition, you know, for years." "We knew," said Alexia. Dr. Chivery glanced at me. "You found him?" "Yes. He was dead. I could do nothing for him." for Beevens uttered a kind of stifled exclamation and vanished from the door with an effect of consternation. We all heard his footsteps cross the hall and the heavy sound of the front door opening. We heard the voices, too, loud and authoritative. "We got here as soon as we cotlid. Where's the murdered man?" "Murdered but we but he . . Beevens seemed to master himself by a great effort. "You are mistaken, sir. There's no murder here. No one sent for the police." There was a kind of jumble of several voices and the sound of motion ; then quick, hard footsteps crossed the hall toward the open library door and the state trooper of the previous day stopped in the doorway. He took one quick look around the room. Then he addressed Dr. Chivery. "There was a telephone call to headquarters about fifteen .minutea ago from this house. Whoever it was said Conrad Brent had been murdered and asked us to come at once." No one spoke. Even Beevens goggled in the doorway like a stricken fish. Nicky's Binall head and graceful body seemed to frqege into wariness like a young animal, sensing a trap. Then Maud said, "Tell them, Claud. There's a mistake." And Dr. Chivery blinked rapidly, looked at his wife's dark hair and the Lieutenant's left shoulder and said that they were mistaken. "Mr. Brent was my patient. Ha died of. a heart attack, he was not mui dered." The Lieutenant came into the room slowly; he was tall and spare as a whip and not unlike one, in suggesting a kind of coiled and day.

I said something which emerged as only an exasperated mutter and went to the door. No one was in the hall; Alexia, Maud and Nicky had vanished. I hurried to the stairs and just at the landing was Beevens (in a long white bathrobe, vaguely Ku-Klux in character) ascending and putting. I said, "Come and help me. Hurry!" He didn't question. Not even when we arrived in the linen closet and there was, so to speak, the young master stretched full length on the Moor. Full length, that is, except that Drue had lifted him a little "so she held his head against her breast and the towel pressed against the ugly bleeding bruise on his temple. , Beevens said som6thing that really did sound like "Tush-tush . . ," and stooped over. "Take his feet, Nurse, please," he requested efficiently. So we got Craig back to bed. By the time we had him covered warmly and hot water bottles around him to ward off pneumonia, he was completely unconscious again. Beevens, still without a question, helped us. It took time all of it had taken time. At last everything we could do was done, and Beevens looked at me. 'They want you in the study, Miss Keate," he said. Drue looked at me quickly, so her little white cap jerked toward me. "Very well." I straightened my cap. I said to Drue, "I won't be long." I didn't give her a chance to say anything but hurried away, following Beevens. I had reached the landing of the stairs just below the stained glass window when I remembered that Drue's hypodermic syringe was still in my pocket. Well, they weren't likely to search me, those people waiting in the library, but I hid the syringe.

A couple of policemen (troopers, by their uniform, so I reasoned that the Brent place was well outside any borough limits and thus in the jurisdiction of the state) followed him. He said, "I see. But who telephoned to us?" Which was what developed the trouble. For no one had telephoned, or at least no one would admit it. Chivery looked uneasy but blank, Maud angry but equally blank-Nicky, Alexia, Peter and even Anna, when questioned directly denied it with various degrees of indignation, but with a kind of concerted and astonished ignorance of such n telephone call which sounded sincere.
