Rights and Lefts The umpire al a ball game in a town in West Virginia called a strike, Hie batter felt clifl'crcntly about il, and told him so, and presently threw a punch at him. The umpire took it to court. 'J'lio judge heard the tcsliinoiiy, meditated briefly, cleared his throat, and announced. "Case dismissed It i.i tha inalienable right of a baseball player to #et mad and have a fight will) an umpire." '/his was very jolly, of cotiwo. and the story hit. the I'.eiv.spupor.s all over thr- country. No doubt the glee i.s widespread by now. Except amwijv umpires.

No criticism i.s intended of Hit- Judge's decision, which undisclosed circumstances of the case doubUes.-i made just.

'Ihe reports are lull ol .such vcrds as knots, kinks, sprains, .trains and .similar Icirns which nean nothing very definite from lie point of view of a scientific li;ii:tiosis. In most instances the rouble is a sprain. A sprain is usually the result of » partial or complete tear of a nrt of the tissues of Ihc ligament tromid a joint. Tire mi'sclc.s are fastened lo the hmcs by llijatnent.s. These tissues, contain blood vessels and nerves, '['lie sudden pulling or tearing of a blood vessel may cause blood to pour out into the tissue, which will produce a .swelling with pain on movement. The pulling of a nerve, v.ilh even small damage to (lie tissue of the nerve, may cause a gcotl deal o[ constant pain. in (lie healing of a sprain certain Icfinite sleps have to be followed.

The first thing, therefore, to lie done In the ease of a sprain is to control tlic amount ol the blredmg is much as possible by thr u;c <il' ; (stopping the motion of tissue) and applying cc-M water. Tlie nest step is to elevate the portion concerned so that it will not- continue lo swell. If (here is u t;:m<l deal of pain. Ihe pain is controlled l>y Hie of remedies which can be taken internally. A recent method involves the injection of a local aiiesllicllc into Ihe Ij.ssncs. This, however, is still being studied, and i.s not recommended as a routine tieatmcnt. In order to aid recovery fioui tlir .sprain as rapidly as possible.

Evelyn said, holding up her lovely h.-mds in despair. "You look like a former ghost of yourself, darliug. You simply cannot go on'like this. H is dreadful about poor Hogcr of course. But it won't'do for my little girt to fio into a decline over him." Jackie said she was not (joint! into a decline, ft was just like her mother lo make something horrible and yet romantic out of it How could Evelyn guess what Jackie was going throufih? She had never loved anyone as Jackie loved ttogcr. ^'Something must, he done about it,' Evelyn decided. She drew her lovely brow into a thoughtful frown. "Lei me Ihink . . ." ''There's nothing lo do," Jackie sard, harshly. "Kxcept what I am doing. Wail." .she did wish Evelyn would let her alone, cease trying lo think up schemes and sug- Kcslions. No doubt she meant to help. But nolliing could help except the word that Roger was out of danger. * * * JT the latest report remained much (he same—Jackie had .lust returned from tho field— Hogcr was siill unconscious slightly delirious, his condilion critical. She threw herself face down on her bed. She no longer shed tears. She had spent Ihem all m that first dreadful fit of wcep- «'g, in Jlic lonely sketches of the long nights. Oh! if only there was to help. She felt so useless, so helpless. Thai was what made this waiting so terrible . . . "I suppose I might as well send Hie-so things hack lo the shop," KvcJyn said. She referred to the huge slaek of boxes, containing Ihe wedding dresses and veils, lhat she had had sent out and haei insisted Jackie try. "I'm afraid we won't use them now . . ." she sighed. H seemed such a pity, when she had so hoped lo have a June wedding, with all iis glamorous trimmings, for Jackie. "At least," she added, "1 suppose we can't use them for some time." "Please,. Mother!" Jackie vro- tesled.- She buried her face deeper in the pillows. Why must hrr mother remind her of that wedding lhat had only been pretense, anyway, a wedding thai was not ;up)ioscd to have taken place, would, indeed, never take place now?

"I'm sorry, darling—i dkln't slop to think how badly that wouUl make yon feel." Evelyn came over to sit c'own on the bed by Jackie's side. She leaned over, stroking back the fair hair from the young sweet brow. She could understand her daughter now, at last. Jackie was behaving the way a girl sl-.ou!d, a girl in love. Evelyn had known that given time enough Jackie would prove as romantically inclined as any girl. Every girl, al heart, was just (lie same, the wide world over— always had been and always would be. "1 know what I K-onW do if Roger were my young man!" I'-velyn said suddenly, for Evelyn, loo, was likely to have ideas of her own. "Why, once," her beautiful eyes grew misty al Ibe memory, "when your poor dear dead father was ill, darling—though it lui-nccl out to be nothing serious then, hut I thought lie was dying and I was so terribly upsel—I went all the way up to Scheneclady in Iho most dreadful, the dirtiest" old train and (hen had to drive miles and in a horse and buggy, of all things!

Her niolher had suffered and waited and worried. "Did you love him, my father— so much?" Jackie asked. Evelyn nodded; the tears thot sprang into her eyes were genuine. "More llran anyone, more than life itself, darling. 1 shall never really love anyone again. There never is any love like Ihe first, my dear." Yes, Jackie could believe lhat. If anything happened lo Roger, i£ '1 l he did not get well, she would It. never again love anyone. ^** "Of course 1 am very fond of Paul," Evelyn said lirmly, as: (hough persuading herself of thi^ fact. She gave her eyes a gentle graceful dab. "Bui, darling, that isn'l what I was hying lo iell you. What f meant was that it I were in lov<; with floger—and engaged to marry him—nothing could keep me from him—no, nothing on earth!" "You mean you'd go to him— now!" Jackie sat up straight. Her mother nodded. "Certainly I'd go to him. if I had lo walk every step of the way! Though of course, darling, thai won't be necessary." She smiled on Jackie fondly. "Yon won't even have tc go in a dirty slow train, or travel for miles in a horse and buggy Von can fly !o him—and be there within a few hours!" "Oh, Mother . . . why, of course I can! Why dkln'l I think of it! How did you ever? Oh, you are Ihc dearest, the most understand^. ing mother, the best!" Evelyn gave her daughter a light squeeze in response.

"f'll phone Paul right away," she said, gelling up from flic bed. When Evelyn had an idea she put it through immediately. "He will gladly make all the necessary arrangements, J know. He will probably have lo charter a private plane for you, darling. Hosv soon, shall I tell him you can be ready?" "How soon? Oh, Mother! fell him I'm ready now!" The golden fires leaped hack into Jackie's anxious eyes, Ihc soft color flooded her lovely face again. She was going lo Roger. She would be with him within .a few short hours.
