Its only end is the uile of the mailed fist. r lhe one tonccplion sees man as a ciiMtuic ol inlmitc possibilities, and his history as an endless progression from good to better.

Or, if you wish to boil it all down— democracy flourishes in America while overseas it is in dire peril of extinction. And with all its faults, its inconsistencies, and HH blunders, democracy is the way of hope for mankind. If calls for freedom—freedom between man and man, and between nation and nation—and it assumes that man is worthy of it. It is a noble assumption and a great hope. Americans and Canadians have no more sacred duty llnin to preserve it. Their magnificent frontier, which runs free ol suspicion and fear from .sea to. sea, marks'a road lo the I'ul- .lillment of the race's grandest dream. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Time lo Gel Ruddy President Roosevelt's visit to sec- lions of the country which .sulfered from last spring's disastrous Hoods points again lo the necessity of preparedness to avert these calamities. The president pointed out in Vermont, for instance, that coiistrnclion of the U'inooslci valley dam after Hie tragic Ifl27 Hood doubtless saved many lives and prevented great properly damage in the 19;iG deluge. Similarly, Ohio, since the !!)!!! Hood, has protected itself against future calamity. The tendency, of course, is to ne- sltrtl these precautions ;i.i'ier the. immediate danger is pasl. Out here is a matter that requires consistent federal and stale co-operation at the time when no danger exists. I'olilics doesn't enler into it.

She was sure she knesv what they were Dunking; she was Ihe girl who was running around wilh that wfld galool, Jaime Laird, who lived across the lake at the Majestic. Flying high! They till knew who Ann was. what she did in the city, and how old she was. She was wearing climbing top. The porch sitters look up their positions and waited for somc- tliing to happen. One or Iwo genial old ladies dropped ;i slitch or two in their knitting when Jaime's long roadster came roaring around the bkc, to stop in a whirl of dust before the Glenwood Inn. Ann went down to meet him and they drove away on the Cascade road, toward the Murcy Irail. Jaime seemed changed. Ajui Ihoughl—or perhaps she imagined il—that his face had a lillle more color this morning. .Perhaps -it •was tha result of the crisp mountain air, , "Is this a very sleep mounlain?" Jaime asked. "It's the highest in the Adirondacks," she said firmly'. Jaime pretended to faint, and she had to calch Ihe wheel to keep -Ificm from swerving off the road "You juvenile!" she said, laughing. "You perpetual crown.'' He faced her. "Do you like me?" "I'm afraid I do.' nPHE climb they were attempting •*• wasn't arduous. They were going only part of the way up the mountain. AI first the trail was no more than a leisurely uphil walk. At intervals Jaime sioppci and pointed out flora beside the palh. Once Ihey stopped lo watch tiny lizards in the grass. This experience was something entirely new. to him, and he thrilled to it like a small boy }jis face was (lushed when the; came lo Ihe roaring cataract whici emptied one of Ihe high mountain lakes called by the Indians Lake Tear-in-the-Clouds. lie leapt oul lo tho-;big "ooulde in tlic very center of..the, ragiii{, d|'and'wailed for her to fol low. Ann jiunpsd, and ho caught her in his Mms. They were both laughing hilariously when they sat down on the rock-island to catcli their wind. II hadn't been a bad climb, and now .they were enjoying one of the mosl beautiful slghls in the mountains. The sun, playing about tiie peaks, painted them wilh a fantastic mauve and purple. The roar of the water was pleasant in their 'ears. A faint cooling spray camo up at intervals to revive them from blissful lethargy. Jaime smoked-and was silent, ontemplating (ho grandeur all bout. Ann leaned back on the oek, and watched the cirrus louds chasing one another in Ihe ky. "You sec how marvelous it is ip here?" she said. "This is a real •acation spot." "At least it's boiler than (hat lark lilllc hole—-the belling room. lut il was loo inueh work getting icrc!" Jaime smiled lazily down t her. She sat up suddenly. "Jaime, vhy don't you do something?

Jaime vill be a good boy." lie looked up at (lie trail which ed toward Ihe. top ot the giant leak and said, "Shall we climb i?" "De you waul to?" Her eyes were eager again. . "If you want to," he said wilh extreme courtesy. "I think I could ^o it unlil lunch time. After we've iirid our lunch we can slarl down again."

Elc had lo go lo the racing room and ECO how much inoney he had lost mi Ihe day's races. He was losing steadily. After a hot shower Ann fell refreshed, and joined tiie erowc for lea in Ihe lobby. 11 was hard lo realize lhat she had arrived al Ibc resort only the afternoon before. The hostess, Aimce, was busj introducing new guests, and Aim fell like one of Hie oldest now Aimce talked to her like an olt friend.
