The Cpngressmah who ^then repreaent- cd Kansas on the. Committee on Agriculture was deluged with post ciards, letters and telegraojiB. calling upon Iiini to support th^t.biU ' just as it stood, "without changing it by the crossing of a t or the dotting of 1." The CongreBsmaa refused to "represent" the sentl- ~ mcbt thus expressed,' opposed the (irout bill, helped to frame and imHN nnotliier, utd later had the Hiitl ^faction of seeing the National Dairy ABsociatioQ repudiate the ' Grbut bill and acquiesce in the other. . : .

"Thns spoke Fred Trigg, editorial writer for the Kansas City Star, in anaddress at noon today before thie Religious Luncheon Club, as an illustration of how to nerve ObriiBt after telling the story of Jeans leading the children- of Israel into the wilderness and finding the waters bitter.

"'The friendship of England and America is both obvious and inevitable," declares Sir Rennell Rodd, who is now paying a visii to the United States. Sir Rennell Rodd is one of th^ veterans of the British diplomatic service whose 45 years' experience has given him an intimate ' acquaintance with nearly all parts of .the globe. He was born,in 18S8 and graduated from Oxford twenty-two years later. 'He has served at Berlin, Stockholm, Athens, Rome, Paris and other Eurcopean capitals and for a number of years ! filled important posts in northern and central Africa. During tlie critical period following the w^r he was British Ambassador to Italy. Ho has found time, in the midst otjhiu diplomatic duties tb write numerous volumes of history and he is also well known as a poet, his best known book of verse being "Poems in Many Lands." FIERY, ITCHY SKIN 1 QUICKLY SOaiHED BY THIS SULPHUR interests the .serve. The trouble a'oout the.theory of those who think that "a representative should represent" lies in the difficnlty the representative has in determining who or what it is ho should represent In former days the convention which nominated a candidate for Congress could def-j initeiy instruct,' him upon somej matter that liiay have been at th^ time an acute ^ issue, and the candidate who was elected 'with' such instructions was morally bound to carry them out But there is no. way now by which a candidate can be Instructed by anybody upon anything. There is no way by which he can learn , what the majority ot |ils ioni^tiH cuts think upon any measure. He finds hiinself beseiged by lobbyists claiming to represent orgSni- j'zed lal^r or embattled farmers or this that or the other ot 200 organizations which maintain lobbies it!Washington for the piurpose of influencing . legislation, each of whom a.ssurcs hinn that "the peo- l)le" are "deniahding" the- passage ' of this bill or the defeat ot the otn- r er. It he belongs to 'the representative should represent" class of Congressmen he yields to the strongest pressure. That la to s&y he cuBts his vole with what he has been made to believe is the cTowd that will give him the most •votes at the next election. And thus we drift ever i^iore and more in thf direction of government by blocs.; "hiocs which represent always . the minority for the majority is ufi- able to organize and therefore ia inarticulate. All the majority has to depend on is the judgment, of its repre-. Bcntativcs; and whtn these representatives yield, their Judgment to some one else they fall in what should/be the highest'function of a representative.^ •- Bethany College, the historic school for girls maintained by the Episcopal church at Topeka, is to become the beneficiary of the '|unearned increment" method of; accumulating wealth. When established more than half a century ago it acquired "for little or nothing" a large tract of land then •well outside thd city limits of Topeka. The city has now grown completely around it with the result that its holdings have become extremely valuable and the Board of Education has just bought from the college a tract of land 7(^0 feet long and 300 feet deep for which it has agreed to pay 1142,000 and upon which it will build a city high school. The college will erect two new buildings -with the money which thus falls into- its lap.

The .Story Thus Fair. CALDWELL, Kas., in 1880 was a wicked cow town, ctose to the bdrder of the Indian territory. There GORDON W. LILLIB, later to be widely known as PAWNEE BILL, was" waiting on table in a restaurant, when JOB CRAIG, foreman of the Bar ;K- ranch in the Cherokee Strip, came to town and quarreled in the restaurant with TO.M BENTON. / Smarting under the quarrel, Benton later that night picked a fight in a poker game with JEFF HARRISO?f, professional gambler who had come to Caldwell with his small son, TONY,, and shot him. . After the killing Benton rode away and Craig took Tony'Har­ rison under his wing. « * • CHAPTER III. Colonel Titus Moore held about 50,000 acres of grazing hind in the Cherokee strip and was Just beginning to fence soma of it in. It was wonderful range; much better In hU opinion than the stuff he had owned in Kansas, Just, north of the border, and had. sold a few years before. The colonel was an individual of some character. He had gained his title, and lost an arm, in the Civil War. A A'irginian, from Prince William county, near Mansassas. he had organized a company of cavalry Just before the first battle of Bull Run and offered it to the Confederacy. Stonewall Jackson himself had complimented him after the battle. Later he had ridden with Jeb Stuart, and it waa while serving with the famous cavalryman that he had received the saber cut that necessitated the amputation of his right arm. .Appomattox had found him in line for promotion to brigadier general, and at the unbelievable youthful age of 30. The task of reconstruction was more than one of his impatient character cared to face. He cheerfully turned over his rights in the ancestral plantation to his brother, cashed in what he could and turned his face westward^ first pausing long enough to marry KatAerlne Prldmore, daughter o.f an adjoining neighbor. Kansas and cattle had. been kind to him. In less than 15 years he had accumulated a tidy fortune and, what/was equally important to Mm, the finest mare in all the southwest, iioyr that his herds were fattening contentedly on Cherokee nation grass, the future promised even bett^ things than the pas't had delivered. ' At the moment he was astride the black Kentucky mare,' fitting as straight as a poker in his saddle and watching a horse coming toward him beneath the double burden of a man and a boy. "Joe Craig's one of 'em," he pronounced. "Now. what do you suppose kept him in Caldwell all this time. Fancy?" he addressed the animal he sat on. Fancy snorted and threw up her head. She was impatient to be off on a mad dash over the rolling plains. The!colonel checked her with an iron hand. "Behave yourself, ?an- cy. Where's your manners.? ^"i'on- der who that is with Joe Ci^aig. Can't be a new hand. Too sm^." He allowed the mare to miinch grass, and waited. | • A few minutes later Joe Craig dismounted before him,; helped the boy out of the saddle and paused, a wide grin on his face, to pat the colonel's mare. "Afternoon, Colonel. I'd like you to shake hands with my- friend, Anthohy Harrison." TitWs Moore smiled. Explanation would come in Joe Ctaig 's own good time. There was no rushing the fellow. "How do?" he said hospitably, and. reached down his one hand to the hoy. "Name's Anthony," Craig continued, "but I call him Totoy." "Indeed. Do you mind If I caEH) you Tony r" The colonel turned to the boy. who smiled his grave, shy smile., • N >y <.'r. Ti' like 't " , •'r '.rfl « Cue. V. .-jr.- iott:ii r ;ilii';? real well, ain't we?

'Colone!^ loaded up with responsibility now. • • • • As for making yourself useful, I'm eyes twinkled. Titus Moore's "Yes, Joe." • "Tony's daddy was killed Saturday night in Caldwell. I've sort of appointed myself to look after Jjis affairs .and •! thought 'maybe ^ j-oh might advise me when it <-ome to choosing a plate for him to live." An understanding sympathy was iu the colonel's expr^lon of sorrow. . The Httle black-haircil figure l^with the broo<ling brbwii t -yes had touched him from the start. Uum- inatively. he scratched the hack of his head. "Well, now, you can't be too^carcful picking the proper kind of home for a young boy like Tony. What %-ould you think about the Bar K? 1 don't know any place where he'd be. more welcome, although I t-au't speak very higlily of the associates he'd be picking." "I- was thinking the same thing myself," Joe Craig said very gravely. "Thati is, about the welcome. 1 guess you might say that Tony picked a somewhat worthless guardian, but I'm predicting that responsibility will make a new man out of me." ' Titus Moore laughed outright. Craig," he said. "1 sometimes think you show ^ extraordinary powers of Judgment'r I'm right proud now that I mode you myiioss rider." Craig grinned. ,The colonel's warm-hearted response had dissipated whatever fears he might have felt at overstepping his authority. Some; time later, entrenched behind a plate of bacon and eggs, Craig recited to his employer the details *of the killing of Jeff Harrison. Titus Moore frowned heavr ily at mention of Tom Benton and from time to time he turned to look at Tony, his usually stern features relaxed in an expression of pity. You were rights about Benton," .he commented to Craig. "Son." he said to Tony, "there isn't much we can do to inake up the loss of your daddy, but I'd say that when Joe Craig took charge of you, you fell into good hands. He's a mite irresponsible; as far as I know he ^lasn't saved a dollar in ILve years, due chiefiy to an irresistfble desire to examine the other man's hole card; but he's square and he's dependable. I'm telling you Uiis because you have a right to know what sort of a man you're lining up with." Craig reddened beneath the praise. The Iboy, who had been staring at the plhte. as if to hide from the others the misery Iu his eyes, lifted his face and smiled. You've been very kind (o me. you and .Mr. Craig. I'll try to make myself useful around here, so 1 won't be too much trouble." The colonel was loud in his protests. He saw that the lad was on the point of breaking down under the shock of bereavement and the unlooked-for kindness on the part of total stranger.i. "We're not aiming" he declared gruffiy, 'to find apytliing for you to do] This.'-' with a sweep ot his arm, "is your hom^. You just settle right down here and grow up." The boy's eyes followed the colonel's gesture. "My father," he said simply, "taught me not to t^ke anv favors. If I can't earn my board.' I'll have to pay for it. Daddy left, me something like $1300." "Whfch," supplied Joe Craig. "I'm turning Isver to you. Colonel, for safe keeping. I reckon I'm not qualified to plant dollars and make them grow. .They;haye a habit of stopping off for brief visits in my pants pocket and then heading for a permanent destination." Titus Moore's 'eyes twinkled. As for making yourself turning you over to Joe Craig with instructions to make a cow bapd out of you. ^Vhen you^ reach the point where you're earning more than .vour feed bill you go on the payroll for whatever Joe thinks you're worth. How does that strike you?" • Ah hour later young Harrison had been installed in the shack that housed the bunks of the Bar K riders, had been introduced around and had become owner of an Indian pony, which Colonel Mooro bad offered as a gift, but which the boy had insisted on pa}'ing. for. Titus Moore _had charged him WO. Craig spent another two hours showing him how to saddle the pony and how to stay on the frisky little beast ."You'll be a, <Iern good rider before you know it. Tony. Youll fall, maybe, a few times, 'but yo^t just stick to him now while I go iu and talk to Colonel! Moore." He found the colonel seated at his riide>y constructed writing table, gazing thoughtfully at the landscape through the open window. Tli4 cigar between his teeth had gone out. Joe." he said, "I'm anxious to know just what prompted you to do it" Craig perched himself ;on the table, ' one knee drawn up between his clasped hands. ''Well, you might say as how I was downright «orry for the little maverick. Nobody to look after him—and Caldwell ain't exactly the best atmosphere in the world for an orphan." Titus Moore regarded his dead cigar. "That's not all; Joe." "Huh? Well. I reckon I felt some responsibility in the matter. Bepton and I had a run-in earlier in the evening that likely put him in a killing mood. "When ' I parted company with him he was downright unamiable." : "That doesn't hold water. If yon and I quarrel and then you ruq into somecn<> tonight and kill him' where is my responsibility?" Craig studied ithe floor in silence^ .Moving oveii to the window, he gazed uneasily toward a clump of rcdhud trees tnat bordered th«i Mentho-Sulphur, a pleasant cream, will soothe and heal skin that is irritated or broken diit with eczema; that is.eovered with ugly rash or pimples, or is rough or dry.
