Judging by sonic of Hit; .Jeremiads on Ihe printed page or the'political platform, one would imagine that the redcoats once move stood on Concord bridge, that Ihc national ctipilol wis in ruins, UiaL everything wrat of tin; 'Mississippi had smile inlo the Pacific ocean, and that the j;uill ( >linc would start clanking on Main street at 9:<I5 tomorrow morning.-It is easy for us to forget thai lliis America of ours is a l)ig country—big, and lough. H has stood up under a great deal of kicking around hi Ilio past, and it will stand up under a great deal more in Ihe future. It has taken everything from Sherman's march to the sea to Ihsiill's march to Greece, and survived to come back for more. What is happening in ,llie -land >y-to"day? Weir/soiue millions 'of A'nicri- S' cans arc looking forward to vacation '''' trips. They will go rolling over the great- esl highways on earth, enjoying a sense of complete freedom, as they go, that people of past ages could only 'dream of; they will'travel through a friendly land, breathing clean winds thai, have a whole continent to tumble around in; and, if they wish, they •can go 10,000 miles without once .stc- ing a frontier guard, a soldier in uniform, or a stranger who cannot grecl them in (heir own tongue. Other millions are enjoying th«m- selves at home. They arc going to baseball games, enjoying the pop- .bottlc-and-hot-dogs democracy of the bleachers; or they arc playing golf, or splashing about at some balhimc beach, or loafing in serene content on the tree-shaded front porches of 20,000 small towns—and if their country is, as the prophets of alarm assure us, in one terrible fix, the fact seems to have escaped the altcnlion of most inhabitants. Now all these millions upon millions of people, who arc making a pretty good summer out of it in spile of every Hi ing, arc' just as wise as Ihe Jeremiahs, if nol a little bit wiser. They've 1 been through Ihe mill, of course. They know as well as anyone that Ih.e lust half dozen years have hl'on rocky ones. But they also knew that their country lias an immense sanity and toughness of fiber which the depression has not destroyed. They know, in shorl, that for all ils Black Legions and ils Liberty Leagues, ils radio demagogs and its tub- thumping politicians, it is still a prelty good sort of" country to live in—a country that has lived through worse Ihings lhan the lOUO's ever dreamed of, and can do it again if it has to. The NC.U War An Englishman, addressing (he University of Virginia Institute of. Public Affairs, lokl an American audience yesterday that the factors which drew the United Stales inlo the World War will be operative in the next and in every, subsequent war. The answer to thai, from the American viewpoint, is'that they will be if 1 we let them. Some Americans optimistic.'.enough:.'to believe that the lessons we.learned during and after the World War will nol be forgotten wlvjii' hell breaks out in Europe again. The United Slides 'has no interest in lOuropean or Asiatic' quarrels 'sutVic- ient to justify-thc sacrifices of war. There will be .tremendous pressure ;,> bring us into the next war but if from the start we 'resolve to main tain a strict economic- as well as milili.ry neutrality—to hold aloof, in otner words, from all complications that might make inevitable our participation as a combatant—we will be successful in keeping out. And the humiliations and .sacrifices lhat such a policy would no.doubt entail would be a cheap price for avoiding a repetition of our World War experience. mum SIDE GLANCES By George Clark HIIftIN llltlli: TOU.VV CI.AIHK FOHIUCK «cf« mil to drlvr In 1Nc lonel>- mountain faoaic Icff dor by hvr :ei'i'Pn(rlc viifli 1 , I,YMA\ POHDJCK.

NOW (iO OX WITH THE STOIIV CHAPTER V AS Dan stared at Hie bloody cap, his mask-like face showed emotion for Ihc first lime. Bob turned to him. "You were with Eb, weren't you, when lie went back lo the lool house?" "Yes and no," Dan answered. "We walked down to the shed, as I said, but he wenl back alone lo sec it he'd locked the door." "And you didn't hear anything that might explain this?" "Nol a sound." "All right." Bob lurned away with a dissatisfied shrug. "Come on. We've got to see if we con find him before we do anything else." • But Claire came around the corner of the iiouse just then and they could not keep the story from Iicr. "What do you think?" she asked Pal anxiously as she fell into slcp beside him. "Do you believe we'll find him?" Tiie others had gone on ahead. Pal stopped and took bolh the girl's hands in his. "I have a hunch we won't," lie said. "I wish you'd go back into the house, Claire. I'd feel safer about you if you did." "You believe Eb was killed, then?" Pal shrugged. "I just said I ]iad a hunch, Claire, bul I'm not | the seventh son of a seventh son co mnybe il's a bum steer. It's only that after last nighl, dear, I know if anything should happen lo you"—he louched the bandage on her wrist tenderly—"it—well, [t \vould mean a lot to me." Jusl Ihen Bob Slccle halloed from a clump ot: aspens. "Oh, Iherc you are!" Bob's voice held relief. "I missed you two, and r-arnc back." 300 VGARS AGO, WAS THE ONtV 'CITY IN THE WORLD WHERE MfRRORS WERE MADE/ .

Acknowledging themselves beaten, the young people and Dan retraced their steps to the house lo tell Susie, They found her in Ihc library. When fiiey fold her about her brother she collapsed into a chair with a smothered shriek. "What'd f tell you? I knew something was going to happen—I knew it all the lime. George Banes saw the white miner and—" "And he saw this what-you- call-it al about the same place from which the shot was aimed nt Claire?" asked Pat sarcastically. "Ever hear of this spook sniping at anyone?" "No-no," answered Susie. "He just walks. Some say kinda dim and slow-like, but George Banes seen him hustling along Ihe trail like lie was going somewhere." "Urn, probably was late for a spook conference." Pat lighted a cigarel and offered his package to the others. "How about a little fire in here, Claire? Il's chilly." Dan was dispatched for firewood, and, as Ihe door closed behind him, Pat looked steadily at Ihc housekeeper. "What do you know about lhat man, Miss Sprall? Were he and Eb on good lerms?" For a minulc Susie did not answer. Then her full lips tightened into a hard line. "Dan never had nothin' lo do wilh il, I'm lellin' you. How you know Eb didn't just happen to remember something he wanted down in the village and go after it?" "Thai's right, Pat," agreed Bob. "How about my going to see if I can find him?" "Okay if you're willing," answered Pat. "I'll go out and do some more digging in that hole by the cupola wall. I'll get Dallas to help me." * * * J")AN came in then wilh Ihe wood, Afler the fire had been started and the men had gone, Claire scnl Susie back to Ihe kilcben. The Rirl wanted to be alone lo lliink things over. She wandered about the library, and finally sat down before the old-fashioned bookcase. Claire took down n small red volume near her. Poems. Her uncle had been fond of poetry. There was another copy of. the verses of this same obscure poet in the bookcase in Lyman Fosdick's room upstairs. "Jewels of Verse." Idly she turned the pages, her mind going back lo the happenings of the last few hours. What evil threat hung over this place, sinking three times in sucl a short space of time? Did someone clso 1 ' know about Lyman Fosdick's hidden, jewels? Could Dan Dallas have fired those «hols the night before? Why had Pal's questions abo Dan aroused Susie I 9 such tier denial? Jusl what sort of a wor an was Susie? Supposing Susie had found o more about Lyman Fosdick's a fairs than anyone knew and w using her knowledge now fo h own advantage? Claire detc mined to question her later. CHE turned the leaves of tt book in her lap absently. The her uncle's neat handwriting m- her eye, and she looked at it wil closer attention. She had nevi heard that Uncle Lyman wro'- poetry himself, but iiere vyas ev dcnlly an original verse. "Deep in the mountain depths lie, The arrow broken in my breast. Wedded pines above me sigh, To mark the end of eartlil quest." She turned several more page but there did not seem to be an more stanzas. A sudden peal < Ihunder 'crashed Ihrough trll room.
