London, Feb. 7.—Influential American friends of Poland are urging those in high authority in that country to make n quick peace with the boishev- iki. In diplomatic circles the belief was .expressed that these admonitions are coupled with the reported desire jof the British government for peace 'between Poland and soviet Russia, and will have great weight, in favor of a cessation of hostilities. : Kaid Sir Harry MacLean- Dead. j Tangier, Morocco, Feb. 7.—Kaic j Gen. .Sir Harry MacLean, who has had ;a picturesque career in Morocco ii^.tht ••'service of- tie;Brltish^.EOverhment, 1 ijie<! here. ' " ' , ':':.. ' Karhaglan, sloe-eyed daughter of : the' Armenian doctor, seemed,.disposed to. condescend to Tufa under these circumstances. Ras; too; had yearned: hopelessly for Eela. He determined to put over a performance to equal or excel his cousin's. He knew of a better plantation and a newer Ford.- The plantation he wanted *was so near to town they could run In to the picture theater"; if—. And Ras would have 1 made his-adventuring voyage-to the other side of the world even irod he-known posftive- ly what had merely occurred'to him as a probability:—that Tufa'Sj money;.-had: been the fruit of a series of predatory enterprises' which made it by the rarest of good luck that he ever returned to Caiffa. He had got out of New York Just two .lumps ahead of the police. Ras himself was entirely without prejudice as-to the mar.iier in which. he might possess himself of some of the pelf of those villainously rich un-. believers in America.; His one Idea was to, get It and get back. George Washington Ciphers wouldn't have trusted Goora, pere, for a .ten- cent paint brush If the latter, per magician's carpet, had suddenly walked In upon him 1 . Moreover, he would liave kept the keenest of eyes on old Eas senior, to. eee tlrat he didn't steal the knob off the front 'door as he went out But Gwen Ciphers didn't Inherit either her father's suspicious temperament nor his quick Insight Into human "nature. Gwen,, 1 though she didn't suspect It. took somewhat after her mushy mother. So when Bas, hat In hand, approached her as she sat on a bench in the historic square planning wonderful things for the world—to be put in her book—Gwen did not shoo him away, but looked at the paper he held out. •Ras had great, soulful eyes, like a deer, and said, so. pathetically, "Plis, raees 1" ••The writing iread: "Am strange mans in grate country. Pies show work. Am'awful grate strong." "What on earth—where did yon get this?" Gwen exclaimed. Ras shook his head. ."No'spik American." ."Well^you poor soul, you've got s nice time ahead of' you, sure. ' But vho wrote this?" Ras shook his head again. ... ! Gwen, by speaking very loud indeed, In single words, and making a series of experiments In the sign language, finally got out of Ras the two words, "cook, .ship."- . . .- .., "Well, yon come with me," Gwen suddenly exclaimed; and. grabbing. Ras's. coat sleeve with thumb and-.forefinger she steered him. over to ths Wost Eleventh street "pension;" whtr« shejiyed with"Madame Blanc, a Swiss conjuress, who knew how to change flve cents' worth of cat meat Into u most delectable ragout She dragged him 1 to the basement. (Joor," demanded to see Madame at once, and to that lady said:- "Here's, that house man you wanted. You've simply got to take, him." Madame was a business woman. RJIS. was without English." He would.-be worth no more than his board. Ras, his deerlike eyes fuli of '-gratitude, yearned to be shown work. Nobody else ever -learned the language as fast as Ras Goora. "Those people, I have often heard," .explained Gweu, "have a positive genius for tongues." Nevertheless she took, a- mighty pride in Ras's accomplishment, for he was her pupil. A dozen times a flay he was at her door receiving tips—tips on English, that'is. In.thrfce months he talking like a-phonograph record. ' -_. . Naturally. Ras explained everything to his benefactress. .He altru- Ist^vho lived, for others. That's why he .was .in ..America. Himself, he would so mar.y' thousand times prefer to stay in his own beautiful, dreuiny Syria, amid the olive trees and orange blossoms, than to go forth among so many, many .strangers.
