Mussolini Knows How To.Gel Whallle Wants Whatever else you may say about h?m, you, must admit that Beul'tp Mussolini has brought Uio old gnliie'of playing both ends against the middle to new heights. II Duce seehis fair to head the one government in Europe which stands to get anything out of the present tangle in Spain. When the smoke and dust die doiwn, it is very probable that the whole fracas will prove to have been a net loss to everyone concerned • except Italy, To understand why this is so, one need go back only to the Italian invasion of Ethiopia. At that liine the British statesmen beat their breasts and announced that the empire would never gland i'or such high-handed 'goings-on. A British official at' Geneva "told the League of Nations assembly that England was dedicating herself to "steady collective resistance" to all acts of aggression. The fleet went to the Mediterranean, there to'iis much' talk of sanctions —and altogether, if harsh looks could • kill, Mussolini would liave died a thousand deaths. But Mussolini is a singularly hard man to bluff, lie went right ahead- and conquered Ethiopia, as he said he was going to. Tlie British' did not , try to stop him, bill they let it b« known that they would never recognize his conquest.. • And then along c.ime the (rouble in Spain. Mussolini drew cards in this gallic at once. Italian planes, munitions, and men went to Spain. Good relations with Germany were cemented by the creation of a common,-pro-Fascist front. It was hinted broadly that Italy would take over the Balearic islands from Spain. So a change came over the face of the waters. The British stopped talking about the wickedness of the Ethiopian conquest. Instead, they got their heads together with Italian statesmen, and presently an Anglo-Italian Mediterranean accord was announced. Under the surface of'the involved language of this accord, Mussolini simply agreed that he wouldn't take those Balearic islands, or approve of any territorial changes of which the British did not approve. In return,' it is commonly understood that he will get British recognition of the con- quest of Ethiopia, together with British loans for development of _lhe' new colony. Now this was just what Mussolini wanted in'the first place. That he actually wanted an Italian foothold in Spain is very doubtful. That he wanted to ace Germany get a foothold there is even more doubtful—for under the surface Germany and Italy are still bitter rivals in central Europe. That he would let Italy get drawn into a war by way of Spain is most doubtful of all. But he acted as if lie wanted all these things. As a result, everyone rallied around to be nice to him. And out of it all he gets—unless all the reports are mistaken—that British approval of his Ethiopian venture which was the one thing he really needed. A clever card-player, this man . Mussolini. —Bruce Cation. Guarding Their Heritage It is not often that anyone can find any cheer in IIC.WH from Madrid these days. But the revelation that a group o£ Spanish government officials has taken steps, to protect many of the country's greatest art treasures will be applauded throughout the world'. '. Next to its toll in human life, one of the most grievous costs of war lies in the "destruction of great masterpieces passed on by a former genera- lion. Ravaged lands and buildings can be restored, but a masterpiece that has been destroyed is gone forever. Saving these precious heritages for posterity is a splendid work; an achievement that would be excelled only by one which would end the fratricidal war that is leaving a shameful blot on the pages of Spanish history.

Some morbid instinct for self- punishment led Paul to collect thu Parisian journals and read the accounts of the- affair—accounts which, in the repealing, were grotesquely distorted. He looked at lliem, in bis hold room, with a rueful smile on his lips. "Don't, dear," begged Ardath. "You hurl yourself when you don't need to. What docs it matter, after all, what those things say? do they know ol you, anyway?" Paul stood up. "They know what I have shown them, I suppose," he said. "After all, my dear, people arc very often judged by the company they keep. And I—" "Oh!" The color drained from her face. "And you have been . . . have been with me constantly,, and my name is a byword, and—" » * • "TVTY darling!" He was at her side instantly, his arms around her. "Ardath, my love, my life, don't say that. You know I didn't mean that. You are all I have and all I ever hope fo have. You—" She put her fingers on his lips and looked up, hurt and serious. "I know you didn't mean it," she said gently. "But it's true. These people whom everyone suddenly seems to find so—so distasteful, are my people, after all. They're my friends, the friends I've always had. I'm a part of that set. I have brought this on you. Oh, Paul, Paul, my darling, what am 1 doing to you?" He held her close. "You are doing nothing to me," he said, "except make :-ny life free. The rest—it doesn't matter, after all. The world at large ily for a moment, and then r! "Dearest, what do you say chuck it all?" "Chuck it?" she repeated. S tied, she turned to look at i in her left hand she still helc the hand minor In which she been inspecting some detail other of her make-up. "Ci it? You mean—our life with t other?" 'Sweetheart! No! No—I n this this life here on bay. How would it be if we rooted ourselves and went—v somewhere start?' and made a fi She laid the mirror down, face had grown pale at his words; now the blood rclurrux it again. .. -'Where would you go?" asked. "What would you do? "Oh—" Paul hesitated. "I'd clear away from this place an and all of these people. I'd- He stopped, and very painsi ingly tamped his cigarct bull an ashtray. 0 « * i "D° you ltnow what 1>ve ways half-wanted to dj he wcni on at last. "I've alw thought I might like to Iive| he looked at her doubtfully, ti continued—"to live on a rar In Canada, perhaps, or the w< may think what it pleases. I have e rn United States, or even in you, and that's enough. It's cv- ! Argentine " erything." ' ! o,,,, ,..,;j ... Yet it was not shrugged off "Very I suppose," said Paul. "And yet—look at this one." He held up an article for her to read. "That the runaway king should fight is neither surprising nor disturbing," said this article. "What is surprising is that he should have been house of the Dm a guest in the do Montmiral where the encounter took' place. That house is France's most distinguished salon; there one may meet artists, scientists, musicians, creative folk who are far removed from the thoughtless crowd that infests the lovely Bay St.' Francis. What, one asks, was this self- deposed monarch doing : in that company? It is far more startling to learn that the distinguished patron would have him as a, guest than to learn—" . i Ardalh threw it on'tile floor. "I won't read it," she cried. "It's cruel—cruel— unjust! What quite as simply as that. A shad- e st." ow had fallen across them, andj it was a shadoV that would not' be talked out of existence. It was the shadow, perhaps, of a throne that. had been given up, a shadow that no magic could evcv dispel but Si at would remain orever, never quite forgotten, to •hill even the flame of love itself. They left Paris and went back o the villa San Margarete. Win- :er on the Bay St. Francis was as jenign as summer. The blue water held,just a little more chill, perhaps, the dawn light was just a little colder and less balmy than .n the summer; but the afternoon •sunlight was still a warm blanket aencath which one could drowse the day away, and the evenings were languorous under the rich blue sub-tropical sky. But .an increasing restlessness was on Paul; a restlessness that made even the warm sunlight, the exquisite loveliness of the sea and the'unfailing softness of the bay's famous breeze from 'the south, seem cloying and over-sweet. And he brought it all out, or tried to, one- evening. Ardath was in. her, dressing room, dressing for an "entertainment to which they were about to go. Paul sat on a chaise lohgue, lighted a cigaret, smoked mood- She taid, "A ranch?" "Yes. Please don't laugh, de §1 "I'm not." She got up nnd came over him. She sat beside him ; tenderly put her arms aro>. him. "Paul, my Is life here so unendurable t' summers are scorching; they you with dust storms and tonj does and drought and plagues J grasshoppers—" CHE broke off and stroked cheek gently. "Tell me, dear boy," she \... saying, taking his face betwe§i her palms, "has it been a bad b&||| gain for you?" "No, no, dear one," he suddenly, tightening his . about her. "Oh, my darling, j^VI angel—no!" '. 'fi --But os their lips came:togetb| they felt, across them, unbidd| and unadmitted, the shadow of Is lost throne. ' ^.
