PLTTHEyiLLE (ARK.); POURIER, .NEWS Too End for I inland _ - II is with si »c c re regret that most Americans have watched relations between this country and Finland progress toward a diplomatic break which almost inevitably will culminate in war. We admire the Finns, and we have been very lenient because we recognize both the animus which led them to join in the war against Ku.ssia and (he pressure from Germany which makes it difficult for them to break away, Hut the issues Involved are • too grave to be decided on sentiment and sympathy. Germany is our enemy, and must bo crushed. Russia is our ally, and must be given every possible assistance. Now that Finland has accomplished her avowed and legitimate object, by recapturing the territory taken by lliissia, she must make her choice whether to light against iis or to n«, sort her rights against Germany, at whatever cost. If she decides wrong, the blame is on her own head.

Never had she felt such chagrin and sfiamo as now rushed over her. Of course Brit would believe Lita now! Beth knew she probably would be placed under immediate arrest. She might bo court-mar- tialed, and very likely would be dismissed from the service, or at least sen! home in disgrace. What else could Brit think, after he lind caught her spying on him? To add to her shame, Llta was castigating her. "Brit told mo ho had last' a secret document, but I don't think he'd have believed you were connected with its loss unless he could have caught you like this." "I didn't ..." Beth started to say. -yrs< '<' "Step this way," Brit ordered. The menacing pistol still pointed in her direction. Beth obeyed. She was al the edge of a small cleared spaw, Brit had moved slightly toward her and away from Lila and Kick. • . -^ i "Now," Brit said, and his tone ,of voice was controlled and very distinct, "remember that every• i mmt I '• • ~ "~ — .^**."

But liis lips spoke to Beth. "You're entitled to know about this little drama, Lieutenant Carter," he said. "I thought over what you toid me this afternoon. I devised a ruse to investigate that possibility thoroughly. I found that—to my amazement, lor it was hard to believe even after the proof was unmistakable—that your reasoning was correct. You see before you two * very clever spies. I know you were watch- Ing tho seaplane, because I followed you and noticed you at your hiding place. Then I returned to headquarters area and came down the beach—not noisily enough to make it appear I was innocent of all design, but nevertheless making just sufficient noise so that I knew you could not miss observing me. I went to the seaplane. Mr. Moth and Miss Danton do not know it, but I have in my pocket the document they stole. I have almost placed in my mind the precise hour when they stole it—and I am confident that while; Mr. Moth may not be an ex-cracksman, as you suggested the thief might b«, he certainly has had considerable experience at opening even the more difficult types oJ safes." ~^'*-#£>« *• .„ .ssfe, proved, no se- vere test ot my ingenuity at all," Rick Moth volunteered, coolly, "I opened it white Lita engaged n i'nnrd by showing him lier credentials.

Tiie truth is I betrayed you—I told Lila and Mr. Moth you were watching us, because I felt thnl Hits further ruse would enable me to lead themi here, where they could lie cap- lured while off guard.

'You will stay there, please," a suave Oriental voice said to Brit. "I will tie you in a moment." ' [ Lila laughed harshly. : "It looks like the tables are furncd, Major Smart-Aleck Jackson. And as for you, Miss America in Kliaki, I liiink your days of usefulness to anyone, including your brilliant Bril, arc pretty well Hearing an end. You see, we liiink o" everything." . I There was no reply possible. Brit and Beth were bound and gagged nnd were marched, with' pistols at their backs, hurriedly Io the beach and tlie boal. On the seaplane, Ihe gags were' removed, but not the bonds. Belli and Brit were put unceremoniously into the baggage compartment. "I took care of one of your sen- ' tries, loo," Rick boasted. .Then ha closed the compartment door. '. The plane molor sputtered, then' the sputter smoothed into a roar..
