During the last two years Die publishers have brought out a surprisingly large nuriiber of books which mirror the past as ii time of high charm and contentment; Some of them are novels and some of them are books of reminiscence; some of iheiu look back to the lime before the .Givil War, and -some of them go. back only to the nineties; .but through book after book there ;runs the . -niejan'choly sentiment Unit •things used to -be ever so much hap•pier and inor'e secure than they arc 'now.', . This >co!)trast is not drawn with reference to.-.the depression. It is as if thei'deprcsiiion,. to,these authors, simply climaxed .a progression that hud been •going: oil 1 for a long time; n progres- ! sion away from the old simplicities', '. the old virtues, the old contentments. A grea>'de;tl ,of this sentiment is undeniably/justified. Life did move in a more eveii .tenipo, in the old clays. Men's ideas' were less confused. Their certainties 'were less open to iiuustion. The one unquestionable fact is .that we have ; moved into a .time of profound change,, :and it is as confusing and generally tiphappy u period as any in modern ; liistory. Yet however much this looking back at the past ; jnay sah'c our wounded feelings and rneet our wistful desire to re-create a time when the world was younger and less perplexing, in the long run it will do us precious little good. Foi the past, after all, is— the past. It can't be .brought back. For butter or worse, \\e ha\e moved on, and we shan't find salvation by looking over our bhoulders at the shady places beneath the tices BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COUBIEE NEWS we pave, the wuy for a future that, will bo art improvement on it. Once in a great while the stream ot human history makes an abrupt, right- angled turn, away from everything that people arc familiar with, on toward the unknown. We seem to lie living in just such a moment today. Our preoccupation with the past IK natural, bill it is also bud for us. It's time we started looking ahead, not backward. —Bruce Gallon. THURSDAY, OCTOBEH 25;-1084 Nature, the True Poet The poets of some thousands of years hence ought to have :i pretty (iiic time of it. For Sir James Jeans, famous British (sciential, predicts thai in the future we shall have moonlight all night long, every night in the year—and no one who reads poetry needs to he told what this will do for the poctK. Our moon, says Sir James, is going to draw nearer and nearer to Ihe earth; and eventually il will get .so close that il will break up and give us an earth-circling fringe of inoou- fragmetits. This, of course, will rob UK of our moon—but these myriads of fragments will rolled the sun's light down to us all night, and every night will be made bright by moonlight. These scientific gentlemen can draw some strange pictures for us, when they begin looking into the future. Surely none is more pleasantly fantastic Ihan this forecast of a time of perpetual moonlight. What an era for poets—and for lovers! X A We may not like the present era. It may be inferior to grandfather's day in any of a dozen ways.

It was Von-Kluck who commanded the right flank army when Germany swept through Uelgimn into France in 1914. "The great invasion seemed irresistible, for a time—then, suddenly, something went wrong, the right.

"You don't think," he salt), "that Esther Ordway took an airplane? 1 don't seo why not. Everything certainly points to it." Griff, who was smoking, did not answer for a moment. Then he naked, "Why do you thin!: alio wont to all the trouble to take lier photographs with her?" "Because," Dleeker said, "Esther Ordway la none other linn Mary Brlg'gs aud she know that tlio police would recognize her photograph. That's why." "That, of course." Griff told him, "Is a possibility. Hut al the present time that's all it is. Whea will you hear tho result of tho post morto'm performed on Cathay?" . •:'• "This is Saturday night." Bleeker said. "I have an Idea tlio doctors are working on'the ca'eo right now. They should make a report to the district attorney and -the coroner before midnight. Vic probably won't bo able to get a copy of that report before n'u go to press but we should have it some- time In tie morning." ... ' "You'll let mo know?" asked Griff. "Certainly. And you think It's Important to get hold of Esther Qrd- way's mail?" "Yes." ^ "I hate to do It," Dleeker said. Tvo got to put a woman on the spot." "nave you got ouo who her -way about?" "Yea, Elhel West, my secretary. Is right up on lier toes. She's the Eort of girl who can do anything and get away with it," "You know what she's to do,' Griff reminded him. "She's to rent an-apartmeut under the name of Esther Ordway and then Instruct tho post office- to forward her mail from the Elite apartments to tho now address. She'll have to live thero a day or two. I don't want her to stay iu tho apartment too long, though. It's dangerous. Sha' to'stay thore until she's got two o three letter* and then sho can back In tho box with, a notice, 'Opened by mistake,' or ulie can leave nnaJjior forwarding address back to the Elite apartments and fay Bottling about the'Sellers, [t depends on what'a In them," "I don't like It," llleeker said doggedly. • • • fpITE crlmliiologlEl frowned. •*• "I gathered that you didn't," ho said. "Dy tho way." Eloekor said, "there's onb'other development we uncovered lato tbls afternoon. We've found the hotel where Calhay waa registered." "Whore was it?" Griff Inquired. "TLo hotel is tho fiittcrest and Cathay had Room 064, hut he didn't occupy the room." "What makes you think lie did not?" "We took a photograph of Cathay to the hotel and the clerk says he's positive It isn't a photograph of the man who occupied the room." "How about tlie signature on tho register?" 'Tlio signature on the register seems to bo Cathay's signature. That Is, It has points of similarity." Griff squinted ills eyes thoughtful iy. 'But," he said, "tho detective who examined the man who posed as Cathay says tliat tho man signed Cathay's name; that tho signature was a perfect match for the slgna. :ures on the lodge cards'and the automobile driving license." "I've thought of that!" Bleeker said. "Wo are making a further check on tlie hotel. The bell cap tain remembers that Cathay was paged several ttraoa. during tlio course of the evening." . '••'/ "And there was no answer?" "No auswor." . "How about the roojn? Was i slept in?" ; "We've talked with the mnid,'-bu tho maid doesn't remember." ; .' FF nodded tliouglilfully.v' "We|I," ho Bald, guess there's nothjng much to do escepi kill time until we learn some more facts. We should pick up something definite within the next 24 hours. You let me know, will you?" Griff hoduqd. ; : "We'll have that woman located within another 24 hours," he eald, "and then you'll find that elie went somewhere by airplano. We'll probably have tbe pick-pocket who'posed as Cathay rounded up. We've gone after the police department hard on It, 'and they're making a round-up of every pick-pocket in the city." : Griff leaned back against the cushions, yawned wearily and said, "That's what I hate about this business." "What?" Dleoker asked. "Ail this damn delail work. I want to play human checkers. I want to start pcoplo moving'around a, little bit. J want to get them worried." Dleeker said quickly, "You'ro not doing that with Decker In that murder case. You're keeping him from moving around. Tho police aro com- ot lie hasn't admitted." Griff's silence was elEuificant. ' "Can you." asked Bleeker, "lell ne just tbls one thing—did roil ilde him because h« was nervous ir because you thought lila life was eally >n danger?" Griffs faco suddenly stiffened to igtd concentration. Ho said nothi as. DlerAer looked nt him for several iccondr,, then remarked Irrllabljr, 'There's no reason why you can't inswer that question, la there?'' "What question?" "About why you've got Pecker concealed and when you're going o bring him.out In the open."
