Reward for I't'Ojila Who Swwteii Life. The lasl vyil! »n<l Ui.sUtniHil. of t'lut liitu William M. Carson contains ;i neat and painless little sermon for all of us, Mr. Carson was a wealthy San l''t"in- cisco business man who, when it c-anio time for him lo dio, had neither chick nor child to leave his money to. lie owned some SI,800,000 worth of this world's "goods, and he didn't quite like the idea of handing it all in a lump to .some imner.somil philanthropic oi'Kiini- xalkm. So when lie sat down to" make out his will he simply wrote tho names of everybody who had been kind to him, everybody whose courtesy, efficiency or helpfulness had made his life a little pjesisantei 1 :—and divided his bct|iiesls iiuuuig all of them. The S'l people who worked for him all trot bequests. The maids, janitors, liellhops, \vaitprs and elevator boys at his hotel got bequests; so did (he cm- had playp;! tjolf, people in hospitals \yherc he bec-n a pitlient. I tie' church ho attended, the university • from which he had been graduated, and so on. Altogether, more than 100 people were named in his will, for amounts varying from $500 to §10,000. There i", a sort of moving picture romanticism about this will, of course, ami earnest thinkers will no doubt say that the money would have "done more good" if it had ii|l gone to some worthy cause.- , ., Bui therq is ;i lot to be said for the idea of 'doing something to repay all the people who had helped to l)iake v lifu run more smoothly and happily. Far all of vis, as we travel on toward llic graves that await us, carry with ij.s debts jtisl lil^e those which this millionaire paid in his will. We don't often atop to think about them, but tlicy exist. It's a good idea to slop and tabidalo them once in a while. Life consists of an inhiiue number "f small human contacts. A man may consider himself utterly friendless and alone—yet his ability to get his work done, to sleep well at night, lo main- 13111 a smooth temper, even to enjoy his meals properly, depends in no .small measure on the people with whom he makes these contacts. Jmagjijc what a miserable day you would j?iit in if, some morning, you should find all of these people falling ^ilowii on tlicir jobs; if (Heir pleasant efficiency should be replaced by grum- pinm, slovenliness and laxity. Filling station attendant, phone girl, lunchroom waitress, man-at-the-next-desk, janitor, mailman, store clerk— all together, they could ruin your day beyond repair; in a week they could drive you cra/.y. \Vo don't have millions to give away when we die, and even if we did few of us wonli! give them as this San Franciscan did. i?ul it won't hurt us to remember that we carry those debts with us. Dirigiblu I'jXiL Tins big dirigible mooring mast at SI. liubeii Airport, Montreal, built at a cost of nearly $1,000,000, is going to hi! dismantled and sold as scrap mctnl. This mast was used only once— when the lirilish dirigible H-100 vis- iictl Montreal in IOI!0. lOver since then it has stood idle; and the fact that the wreckers have at last been called in is a i[iiiet announcement of the end of the era in which we expected the dirigible lo play an important part in the world's transportation system. Itemember that era? We talked of great sky-liners then, enjoyed imaginary pictures of areial Leviathans, thrilled to the graceful (light of the big, silvery airships, and confidently supposed that it wouldn't be long before the skyways were full of them. But the fatal flaws which seom to be inherent in that l^-pc of air carrier became all too clear, as years passed: and the dismantling of this iMontrcal mooring mast is an unobtrusive symbol that we have withdrawn, froni a Kame we once thought we could win easily. 'Isms' And Antagonisms The growing hostility between .Italy and Russia, brought to a head by Kalian adherence to the anti-Communist pact, draws attention once more to lh« threat to world pence wbreh arises from the international character of Fascism and Communism. Italy's response to Russian objections to the pact is that Italy is mil an enemy of Russia, but simply of Communism—which, as far as that goes, is probably true enough. Jiut the trouble with both of these nations is that their governments are inseparably wedded to world movements which must inevitably interfere in the affairs of other nations. It' is perfectly possible, of course, to bo bitterly opposed to Fascism or Communism and not opposed lo Russia w Italy at all—but it is awfully hard. And ;is long as those two isms continue to arouse antagonism abroad, world peace will remain perilously insecure.

It was now p;!st 8. The family physician was in the study and with, him a group of men Xrom police headquarters. A sense ot tragedy und loss hung oyer the ;; hotac,, which only a few hours ..before" had resounded to mirth and gaiety. A step away from the room where men talked in. muted tones, Jack sal «•:?;•, u] s mother and brother. His arm encircled Mrs. Wcntwortli comfortingly. His other ami reacftecT put until his hand touched t!i.> ihoulder of his stepbrother lightly, compassionately. . Jack's face was drawn with suffering. He wanted to believe, as his stepmother said, that his father had died from a heart attack. But there was the position of the body on tho rug, head up, u-ith an open wound on his head. If his father bad fallen and struck the andirons, he would have been lyiuK face downward. Unless someone had moved him. And it someone had been with his father, who was that person? The inspector hart learned that (he ^hoavy paperweight his father had used was missing. Why? "Mr. Wentworlh." Inspector / W:i]drop was standing In (lie door. "We've rcaclird our conclusions," the inspector said. "We agree with Dr. Lockwood that your falhcr died of heart failure ns a result of shock." Jack felt Ins mother stiffen against him and Barry's shoulder relax a little under his hand. "But, we believe." the inspector continued, -[hnt shock w;is the result nt briny struck sufldcnly by some heavy object—" * * i IP" "'' olip ofl - his eyes sweeping " the Ino. "It will be necessary to question the start cC servants, and lalk with members of the family also. You are (lie only members of UIQ family?" '" "We thvcc and my sister." "I shmtltj like to !:>!k with your sister," Inspector Waldrop soici. Houtme. But nccessai-y. You understand." "Miss Dexter, please avyalien my sister," Jack spoke' briefly. He became aware that Miss Uexlcr s usually expressionless countenance was working with emotion, and that lier eyes were fixed on his strangely. He seemed lo read m her queer- gaze a struggle to communicate something. When-she made no move io leave, Jack began again: "Miss Dexler—" And then as something clicked in his bruin, "wail, I'll go for Jill. I believe it would be best for me to break it to her." "Do you mean (lie girl doesn't know her own father—" Inspector Waldrop stopped in sheer astonishment. "Wo thought it was kinder to wait," Jack answered sternly. As he walked away, Miss Dexter got 10 her feet and pattered after him. Jack whirled. "Then you were frying to tell me something." "Oh yes, Mr. Jack. You see, Miss Jill isn't in her room." "You're sure." "Yes. Everything is in a whirl. She's gone." He went back to the sunroom. "The secretary has just informed me that my sister went out eariy. Probably to some breakfast or oilier ..." He realized his words were falling strangely, uncertainly. He saw amazement in his mother's eyes, a queer glint in Barry's and slark unbelief in Inspector .Wai- drop's. JIM. absent! What, could it J mean? Why had she gone? Why of all mornings in the, world should Jill have ]eft the house when any unusual act would be regarded with suspicion. And this was not merely unusual. It was something so bewildering that even he—Jill's brother—could find no explanation for it. Though, of course, there was one. He fell Inspector "Waldrop's eyes on him. "Where's (he telephone?" the inspector asked abruptly. Jack silently led the way from Ihc room. Inspector Waldrop said gravely: "I might as well be honest with you, Mr. Wcntwnrlh. i tried to spare your mother the .shock. We're certain this is an inside job. Take that marble paperweight we found, by mere accident, shoved in between some magazines." "I think you're all crazy," Jack muttered hoarsely. "What do you make out of that?" 'The mail who cleans your father's study is positive that 11 was there yesterday morning, holding down some papers," In- spccior Waldrop replied slowly. Jack did not reply. "I understand the servants conic on about 6:30. Is that correct?" "Generally. Sometimes later, after a party that had kept them all here very late." "I see. We've queslioned the head gardener, who apparently, Li de;if, dumb and blind to everything. But the second gardener, Willis, and his wife gave some information. They were both awake at six o'clock—the time Miss'Dex- loi- and Mrs. Wontworlh heard the sound of a fall, and also the time Mr. Wentworth's watch stopped. :t was broken by the fall. Willis and his wife say (he two German police dogs wouldn't have allowed a stranger to enter the grounds without nn infernal racket. Is that right?" >/ ' •- • < • f- •• • i *.*,,.. TACK answered! slowly: "Yes, they're good watch dogs." "Furthermore, there was someone with your lather during the evening who smoked a cigaret. There are eigarct ashes on the smoking stand by a chair that Is close to your falher'a Uesk. Close- enough for the person in a fit of auger to have: reached out "and found the marble paperweight. v handy. Now, Mr. Moiitanne. doesn't smoke cigarets. Neither does your father. We've learned they were in conference together." "I'm afraid nil that is mighty flimsy evidence that dad was struck down, inspector." "Maybe. But finally (lie servant who made his rounds after the. bait found Mr. Wcnlworth alone in his study. He went about setting things in order, and he swears there were no ashes in the tray on the stand. I understand that you, your brother, and your sister do smoke cigarets." "Barry and I—"Jack began and hcsifated. • ' "Your sister docs not smoke?" "Jill doesn't smoke generally. I've seen her take a cigaret on occasions. Very rarely. She doesn't like them," "But under nervous excitement—" "We must question yoiir sister,"'. Waldrop resumed. "We must know Hie reason why she left home before it was good daylight on a cold, snowy morning without ;i word to a member of her family." He turned to the lelephone. Jack stood like stone while the inspector spoke professionally into the" receiver; "Call all cars with instruction to pick up Jill Went- worlh, who is driving n custom- built Ian Pierce . , , the licensd number is . . ."
