There could • be no doubting his serl- onsness. There'was not a trace of merriment In his hard (ace. Nor » **stlge of compassion. "Then you do mean It?"

Tlie' older man's face grew suddenly ghastly, and the two heavy furrows extending from his nose to' the. corners of his mouth deepened. He was on-the verge of a collapse. "What Is it?,.Quick!" Fitzhugh bent and looked at the gold eagle. "Heads," he said. CHAPTER XIV. Daniel's career in La Salle street closed with his corner in wheat. Teiv V roinnting the ocean of details,' he •ailed forthwith for Paris. "For a long hoiiday," he told his, friends. But It was really for quite another purpose. Hunt, who swore by the man and . potently believed him the greatest he had ever known, settled ids speculative deals and went with him. One evening in the Cafe Martin they met Artie Sparkle. Artie had long since become an expatriate, due, ac•cording to gossip, to unrequited affection and hope too often deferred. He was with a brilliantly gowned woman of the Frenehjboulevard type, who wore Just a 1ittle"too much rouge, just a few too many diamonds, and a gaiety of manner just a trifle too effervescent. Artie's animosity toward his former rival had very obviously been buried, or forgotten, for he pounced joyfully upon the two Americans, and with f gusto and eclat presented them to her of the gorgeous plumage—his wife of the month. » Then more wine was ordered to toast the bride, and Artie eTrtolled ecstatically the bliss of connubial life,touching in particular upon his own, -which to him, of course, was unparalleled and paramount. Gradually the talk turned upon other topics, with the benedict easily leading. "I read all about it in Limnon, deah fellow." This to Daniel. "Frightfully clevait of you, I must'say, getting all that grain and freezing out the othah chaps. . . . And poor old Otis; I saw him in Carlsbad last week. He looks dreadfully done for. I feah the poor fellow 'won't last long." Always the mention of-Otis' name •pelled bad moments for Daniel. Since .that Indian summer day when millions lad hung upon the toss of a coin the agetl speculator, as Daniel knew, had "been a bowed-down .roan. He neve*r— •rtslted the pit again. He never went •ear it. The memory^of Its roaring *ent a shudder through him. He was .eare-worn, .listless, comfortless. He. Sad lost his "nerve." Grain gambling. topics'-were. taboo In his household,.. juid those who valued his good will found it politic not to broach such in Us hearing. When in October he had left for the German '.' "bad" cures he was broken in health as well' as in •plrit. - - - .His quest was fruitless. V ( ..One, May morning in--Florence Daniel read at his breakfast tablet of Otis' " death. He had died in' mid-ocean-^en route to New York. TJariTeT greeted tKem warmly, shook hands, gave them cigars, and waxed, so Jovially humorous about his malleable patronymic that he was voted a shln- 'nber.of the 'Good IFellows' club »d ,'as> -a- thoroughgoing, fine* sort. Nothing derogatory was printed of him in the New York newspapers; and the eccentricity of one's using one's family name for a "komlcal kut- out" was made to appear a very najt- nral thing for. one to do. ,,Hls arrival In Chicago received a shpilar reception. • The-thing he had. long been plan- •ning, the thing that had prompted his ;trlp' abroad, which had necessitated ..Ithe : proper rearranging of his name, •was made.-public. 'With a fanfare of -trumpets, a sounding of cymbals, a 'beating of tom-tom^ Hugh Daniel Fitz- -rariaolph Inaugurated his campaign for •the Chicago mayoralty. In the primary election these were •-nominated: Hugh / Daniel Fitzran- dblph, advocating pure politics; Sam Buffington. fat and puffy and a tool of the trusts; John Dinwoody, lean and lank and a patron of vice, and Ivan Sklmkns, skinny and erratic and a champion 'of the working man.' Before the primaries, Daniel's chief •rivals, .Buffington and Dinwoody, took scant notice of him, shelving him in a category with Sklmkus, the Socialist, who had no chance, whatever. After his nomination they changed their views. 'They suddenly realized many things; realized Tie .had been working hours to their minutes; that his enormous volume of advertising was not unproductive of results; that he had a happy faculty of making friends wherever he went; that his popularity was booming daily; and that he controlled nearly as many votes as -they. This would never do, decided Buf- flngton and Dinwoody. They immediately set about to crush the intruder wlio presumed -to enter a domain always exclusively their own. Thus, when the papers supporting the malcontents were not casting their harpoons at each othe'r, they took time to shy a concerted volley at the interloper. . Daniel joined in merrily and more than, held his own in the three-cornered melee. Having,,bought a paper, .he was publishing the sort of yellow' journalism the_masse§ wanted.

"Hbw to buy, when to buy, when not to buy; save food, but encourage business." With this as his guide,' A. L. Marlatt, director of course in economics at the University of- Wisconsin, has compiled the procedure'to cut the high) cost of living, and his outline has been sent to every woman's organization in the Seventh Federal Reserve District by the Government Savings organization in- connection with the three months' campaign of the women-In savings as paving the way for safe investment in government securities. Following is the guide as outlined by Prof. Marlatt: HOW TO BUT:1. Direct from the producer; at points where material is made; by parcel post; in municipal market. 2. Through wholesaler; co-operative buying (NOT for boarding, but reasonable use); seasonable ••buy!ng-i;- ; (c6h- tracts for future delivery irisure'.'reas- onable prices for producer and-buyef): '3. Through retailer.: .cash and can-y"stores. .5 per.cent off for cash. .10 per" cent off for cash and delivery'. Buy in amounts so that'dealer can cut prices for you. Pay cash or pay before the .jtenth of the month (so dealer can secure discounts). WHEN^TO BUY: ;". ' (Raise all the food you can'.) 1. After study as to needs for week, month, seasor or. year. Order once a week or order twice n week. ' • 2. After distributing funds available, so that no-'need for healthful living is neglected. ' • • • . 3.

When trusts have pot up the prices (consult your state's attorney). 8.

Around every station along the rail- 1 way are gathered groups of hundreds of homeless people lying huddled together on the ground, the majority of them too .weak e^en • to try to help themselves. From time to .time the' stronger ones climb on freight cars and/ move elsewhere, always seeking better conditions, which do not exist. Two hundred and sixty-three thousand homeless refugees from Turkish Armenia thus are constantly milling about throughout Russian Armenia, making the relief work conducted by the Americans a problem requiring Infinite patience and organizing ability. 0 \ "This is especially true in view of the existence of-248,000 destitute Inhabitants of Russian. Armenia who pos- 'sess. homes,- but no food, as -well as 150,000 ". Greeks, •- Russians, Persians, Syrians >and Eezldis who have- been driven' out of parts of Transcaucasia. "•. "One. hundred 'and forty thousand Moslems, whose villages were destroyed Ip the course of five years of constant warfare, are helplessly encamped in the open around villages of their former enemies, begging infinitesimal quantities of flour, which they mi f t with dirt to give v the illusion of nourishment.

The council, which has been, casting' about for a solution,of'-the problem of hiking 1 care- of young boys and providing for,them wholesome and profitable 'diversion^ has '•- dccfded that - the >: boy' scouts meet the requirements of-the situation better than any. other organization that could be devised, and. an effort, will 'be. made to stimulate the' anrollment of Catholic boys in it. Contrary to the impression that has prevailed . in. some quarters, the'.boy scouts are not i'n any sense a religious or denominational organization.
