Dreams Can't, Charm Aivay Hunjan Trails In the palli of the .sentimentalist there is always one Ijig, if 'unforeseen, stumbling block. People just don't seem to change their diameters overnight; the sentimental soul who thinks they will-is-laying up a big disillusionment for himself. Nothing could' have been lovelier than the sentimental inurriage-iu-n-ro- form-school which was arranged last Slimmer for a feminine infant of such an institution in Oklahoma. And nothing could have been move disheartening—or more human and natural— than the way the thing flivvered. Lust summer the superintendent of Oklahoma's state industrial school for girls decided that a bit of wholesome social'life would do her charges good. Carefully supervised dances were arranged; and at one of them a boy "from outside" fell in love with and proposed to one of the girls. The boy was investigated and found to be a decent, law-abiding lad; the girl swore she was genuinely in love. A marriage was arranged. State officials graced the ceremony with their presence; other girls' in the school contributed little gifts, someone baked a cake, and the stale's present to the bride was n parole. Here was a sentimentalist's (ield dny, if there ever was one; and it ought to have been followed by a romantic hap: ijy" T ever-afler stay, with the sewing r pf tiny .garments to follow in.clue time. But somehow it wasn't. .In something' under a month the thing went sour. And today the girl is hack in the fiuiustvia] school and the boy has sued for divorce, complaining: "She only married me to get out of the school, and she did not intend to live with inc." Sentimental soids are forever stubbing their toes over something like this. But the trouble in these cases is with the sentimentalist, not with the unredeemed sinners who were the objects of the sentiment. there is a large and ornery streak of the old Adam in all of us, and 'it can't 1 be charmed away by graceful gestures or honeyed words. The person who thinks it can is simply begging for trouble. This Oklahoma experiment might have worked, at that. The authorities might have talked turkey to.the young woman, explaining that marriage was- OUT OUR WAY n't just a way to get out of the reform seliool, but was instead a challenge to the best that was in her. Intelligent sentiment never forgets that life is hard and that people are frail. It carries an "or else" in its handbag. It insists that those who would lie helpcc^ must also help themselves. Rut sentimentalism forgets all that, bathes the landscape in a haze of romance—and then wonders why, in the end, things didn't turn out well. f Publication In tills column ol editorials from other newspapers does not necessarily menu endorsement but is nn acknowledgment of interest In (lie siiljjecU discussed.

Tlie 24-mile round trip had taken him two full days. "These dangcd mules is central 1 - ier'n a thunderstorm," he grumbled. "They ain't pack broke £ood yit. Here, Hollimnn, would you help rne wilh these here hags, please sir?" They unloaded the fresh cool water, ample for drinking, cooking, and scanty toilet until another week should pass. Then Hades released the animpls for a bit of grazing nearby. TJiere was a hole of stagnant water just a mile away, all right for the stock but too alkaline or "sally" for human use. 'Where at's th' boss?" Hades asked. "Ain't seen him all day. And oy grabs I'd like 1o know, too!" "Eh?" Ifadcs paused to look quc-stionjjigly at HoUiman. "Well, fact is. Hades, he's out with "Lissa". Just them two." Hades spat rather copiously and glared at Holliman. "S'poscn he is? Ain't no lion, is she? Ain't gonna hurt him none?" "Hell, no! But what business lias he got faking a young gal out by herself." Hades Jones, aged 70-odd, stepped forward menacingly. "What do you mean, Hoiliman? Why yon lyin'—!" "Shut up, old man. ,W<mt me to slap you clown?" one had dared to speak thus to Harles Jones, in more than wilt a century. Uncle Hades had friends, and enemies who re- -peclocl him, in practically every -ounty and corral from El Paso to However, it was the utter surprise of. his "sass" which saved Hothman some, serious embarrassment, there in camp. ' Hades' j^v just dropped. Five seconds later, unquestionably, lie would have had two massive pis- Pershing Edits New Guidebook on A.E.F. Front PARIS i.UPt-Gcn John J.

Tlie book aims to aid visitors In the battlefield zone with helpful and practical information as to roads, distances, trains, restaurants, hotels, etc.. and to tell the story ot what the United States tols aimed wjlh terrible accuracy at Holliman's stomach, He had been known to do just that with other men, and daring them ever to resent it. But—at that instant Honey Bee Girl appeared. "Supper iss ready," she announced, "and Bawn say to tell you not lo wait for them, as they might not be back at all." Before Hades' astonishment had fully cleared, HoUiman was sitting down at the crude camp table, dishing up a pint or so of rich red chili. The old man discharged enough tobacco juice to drown a good-sized mammal, tabled his plans tor discipline, and went glaring into supper.himself. * * * JTE got up before Holliman did, and walked to the foot ol the castle cliff, BANG! BANG! HoHJman and Honey Bee peered out in alarm. But Hades was only signalling. His old neck was craned upward, studying the castle. He fired again, twice rapidly. It was a time-honored call of the outdoors—for anyone within hearing to answer or come. Hades never thought but what Bob Barry would know it, and answer if. he heard. "They ain't up there," the old man muttered presently, and came back to the dining tent. "Holliman," he began, his eyes flashing, "I come dang nigh killin' you n while ago. You ain't old enough lo know belter yet in some ways, and it may cost you. We ain't known to each other plumb good yit. Now I don't want no trouble, but you don't be so frca and careless with yore tongue, young feller. This Barry is our boss. You can quit any time; we c'n git more help, if I have to ride m after it. But by god, Holliman, I'll kill you deader'n a petrified snake ef you git too fnesh! You savvy?" He leaned forward just a little, lands ready to draw. He was a rifle comical, because of his wrinkles and his stoop. But there was no mistaking his earnestness. He meant precisely what he said. Holliman tightened. He had started lo grin at an old man, but he didn't. The keen old eyes spoke a silent warning more po- ent than the words. ."Holliman moved very slowly—hands 'away from his hips. • "All right, Jones. Forget it. You're old. I ain't goin' to fight oldtimer." It was a wise decision. But the situation was still shaky. "You been eyein' Miss 'JJosa yoreself, Holliman. I seen you. I know th' signs. Waal, that ain't no insult, as such. Any young man'd be a fool not to set up to her. Ef she wants you it's her business; but you be danjj shore she does. Now I wanta know- do you know where they're at now'.' Why ain't they here? It's well after dark." * » * JJOLLIMAN had been surprised indeed to hear that old Hades knew of his "settin 1 up" to Mary Melissa. The old fool must have eyes everywhere! But this was no time to argue. Besides, his own curiosity about the missing pair was mounting. "I swear I don't know, Hades. And quit bein' warlike. J told you I ain't nghtin'." Hades grunted. "Woman," he called to Honey Bee, "come out here. What about the two bosses? Where they at?" "They are not here," said Honey Bee, stupidly. Hades bridled again. Contempt almost suffused him. But Holliman spoke first. "Well where aro they?" Tho younger man was equally interested. "They have gone, for maybe a long time," Honey Bee declared. "Hell, didn't they say where?" Hades was losing patience. "They just say tell you both make thee better camp, thee better corral for thee mules and horses," Honey Bee spoke slowly, stalling. Then she had an idea. "Meester Bawb, he say must go. Maybo all day, maybe longer. They take food, canteen, go that way." She painted—not toward the chff dwelling, but in the opposite direction. The men grumbled about ft at length, but after all the note Bob had left also told them to go ahead wilh their own work, and forget about him and 'Lissa. Suspicions thus were not aroused, at the time. An hour later, though, Hades went for a last night check-up on. the horses and mules—his regular job. 'Shucks!" he suddenly exclaimed. "Their horses is both here!" Bob and Mary ?ilelissa wouldn't have started to go'far'on'foot. The old man turned to-stare back at the camp, susp:cious> confused.
