The sun was onf and it was real fall weather. It was just about ri-l.t for another of those harvest home festivals for which Scottville has been famous. One thing is certain: Irrespective of weather, the Scottville event will be well-organized and complete with fun and neighborly visiting. It is one of the most sociable annual events in the county. One of the nicest features of Mason county commuiiitv life, it has frequently been noted, is the number of excellent scheduled district celebrations that come each year. Each is distinctive in itself and each is a contribution to the sum-total of sociability in Mason county. Thief among them, it is evident, is the Si-ottville Harvest Home festival coming up this week for its eighth annual showing. So, for us, it's a heigh-ho and to Scottville we yo. for the big doings Thui-sday and Friday. " I THE AMERICAS GET TOGETHER Acceptances were returned by all 21 nations of North and South America to invitations to attend the Pan-American conference now getting under way at runama. Such response is surprising, considering the short notice given for the meeting. War in Europe brought it on. The nations of the Americas, facing a common threat, are ready to consider their mutual problems of security. The Panama conference will take up neutrality. Presence of foreign submarines in western waters and the visits of European battleships have raised points. Some of the American governments bar foreign warships from their harbors and others we Iconic them.

CHAPTER FORTY EVEN THOUGH the trail was winding and rough in places, a man could easily drive a truck from the Brazee home to Blanco, Arizona, 12 miles, in 30 or 40 minutes. Jerry Dale made the trip this afternoon in less than 25. The truck he drove was not the light pickup. It was the larger one with high-barred side and end frame work, used to haul his prize bulls. At times he had to bring expensive stock from Tucson, or even from Phoenix. At other times he had to take them in to the university for weighing and inspection, or had to shift cows to another ranch for testing on specified range conditions there. Jerry's work was an interesting and truly significant one, as George Brazee had known. This afternoon, though, Jerry was not concerned with cattle at all. He rolled into Blanco at almost alarming speed, locked the wheels in front of Earlywine's general store there, and jumped down from the cab. "Listen, Earlywine. has Rogers been in here? Shot Rogers?" "Why, no. Nawp, ain't seen him, Mr. Dale." "Hasn't, eh? How about yesterday ? Yesterday morning. You see him then? Anywhere in town?" "Nawp, not none." "And, uh, this Miss Lorena Hamilton, staying out at our place. Mrs. Brazee's niece. She been in? You heard about her, maybe?" "Shore have. But haven't seen hide nor hair of her, nr ; *her." Jerry vvalked out. He visited the railroad station agent, the post- office, the lone hotel where presided a gossipy matron who saw, heard, knew or imagined practi- .cally everything. Even this later personage declined any knowledge of Shot Rogers and Lorena Hamilton. But she sensed something. "Have they took and got into trouble, Mr. Dale? Shorn her. I mean?* "I don't know where they are. I don't know anything about them." Jerry didn't like the woman. "Well, you was askin'. I always say if there's smoke there's fire. Now I'll bet she's one| to drive the men to rashness, the way they've all been a-talkin' about how she come out here from the east and SCOTTVILLE News From Mason County's Second Largest City, Agricultural and Dairying Center MRS.

Now it Can Be Proved: Gastritis Does Exist! "For god's sake, woman!" Jerry walked off and left her glaring. .The municipality—unincorporated—of Blanco boasted one gentleman who had out a sign with "Dr." in front of his name. He delivered babies. He doctored such occasional maladies as billiousnesj, broken legs, flux, rheumatism and other things that beset ranch people. He could make a sick horse or cow well sometimes. And he could fill or pull human teeth. Jerry went to his office and found the old man asleep. Awakened with some effort, he swore he had not seen Lorena Hamilton, but was it true that some men out at Brazee's Phantom ranch had got into a cutting •crape because of her, and why By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. IP YOU said gastritis— inflammation of the stomach—to a doctor of a quarter of a century ago, he probably would have told you there was no such an animal. But now Dr. Horace Soper, of St. Louis, devotes a chapter to gastritis in his new book on disorders of the digestive system. It is true that the diagnosis of gastritis was often made, and then it was found the real trouble was something very serious, like ulcer Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. or gallstones or cancer. The diagnosis of gastritis allowed precious time to be wasted and served as a smokescreen to conceal the real condition from the family and medical attendant. Undoubtedly, these things were true and still remain so. Still, it is probable that they were overemphasized and does exist. that true gastritis Two Forms Exist Two forms, at any rate, exist. One I* the acute form due to ingestion of food or drink in excessive quantities. It soon subsides and, if left alone, causes no changes in the lining' mucous membrane of the •Stomach. The modern practitioner with the gastroscope, the instrument that Illuminates the inside of the ttomach, can see these changes •wily. Another form is alcoholic gas- i<: WtU, caused by a bout with the hot•"$*. We know this exists, because n William Beaumont was study- bis patient, Alexis St. Martin, * gunshot .wound in the •o tHat the lining could be ougb the fistula, he f re- observed it. St. Martin used T 0 iprees, and on the days ft* was sobering up and suf- naw»ea,ifieaumont saw f the stomach, It was and raw. U no to suppose then that the lining of the stomach cannot^ suffer inflammation. Hurst, the English student, believes that patients with a constitutional increase of stomach secretion, : f together with a drooping stomach, ! w may develop chronic gastritis be- ! cause their stomach lining is subject i to insults which the average person escapes. Not by X-ray Gastritis cannot be detected by the x-ray, but Schindler, with the gastroscope, has, as we indicated above, actually seen the appearance of the inflamed mucosa. But the older clinicians, long before th« x-ray or the gastroscope, developed methods of recognition in the appearance of the stomach contents. If one feeds a normal person a piece of white bread and a glass of water and removes it an hour later, the bread will be finely pulverized by the action of the hydrochloric acid of the stomach contents; and, normally, there will be no mucous. In gastritis the bread cornea back in great lumps and there is an abun- IN THE NEWS 20 YEARS AGO | W. A. Cross and family motor) ed to Grand wasn't he wounds ? Jerry left him in added disgust and went back to the hotel. The proprietor began gabbing at once but he spoke only enough to et by her, went inside and began struggling with her wall telephone In remarkably short time he had the Douglas, Ariz., operator. When he had placed four or five calls there, he instructed the operator in Tucson and in Bisbee to try all the main dental offices in an effort to get news of Lorena Hamilton, then he went back to Earlywine's general store. "I got to wait for some phone calls," he told that genial proprietor. "While I'm waiting you might dish me up some things." "Anything you want, young man. If I ain't got it, I can go in to Tucson and get it. Ear'ywine's strives to please." "You going in anyhow? Pretty soon ?" "Yep. Tomorrer." "All right. Here—I'll just write out a list. Give me what you have in stock now, and get me wha you have to. I'll send or come in for it soon as I can. And Mr. Earlywine, I want the best quality money can buy." "I'll git It, young man " The telephone calls elicited nothing, so Jerry went back to his truck. He had the motor started, then he jumped out and ran back into the store. "Give me four, five boxes of pistol cartridges, Mr. Eailywine. I'll take them now. Forty-fives." "Here they are. I put yore other stuff in the truck. Some of it." Jerry realized he had important news. He had been suspicious of events, with no very tangible reason, since early yesterday morning, when Rogers and Lorena had failed to appear. But when somebody discovered that no Brazee horses or vehicles were missing, Jerry had been first to act. He had told the newly alarmed Brazees that he would hurry into town and scj if they were there. George Brazee had been prone to believe somebody had chanced to come out and get them. Maybe that was even planned, he had said. Sally didn't believe it. This good woman felt that doom was striking again, doom for somebody. She almost had to go to bed with a case of nerves. 1 tacspoon > B teaspoon minced parsley celery salt !.! teaspoon 1 tablespoon minced pickles salad dressing 1 4 teaspoon Cut the eggs in half, lengthwise.

He made the trip back to the Phantom ranch almost as rapidly as he had driven away, and he braked to a stop near the Brazee's porch. A dozen or more people had heard his truck coming, and so were assembled to meet him. "She's not there," Jerry said at once. "Rogers neither. I tried Blanco. I phoned Douglas, Bisbee, Tucson, even. No trace of them. There's something screwy." Mrs. Brazee looked like she waa about to cry. "They hadn't been seen?" George Brazee asked. "You inquired?" "Sure. Of course I did. I tell you, that Rogers has tricked her! Why in hell was that man permitted — " "Hold on. Nothing'll come of hard talk now. It's time to get a clear understanding. You say you—" "I say I looked everywhere possible, did all the inquiry I needed to. Rogers and Lorena never went by Blanco at all, or somebody would have seen them. It just checks what we learned here — that no horses or conveyances were missing. Something else has happened and I'd like to know what it is." Mr. Brazee looked grave Indeed. He knew this was a crisis, an emergency now two days old, for the hour was supper time again. And yet — he was confused. "Shot Rogerr is a dependable man," he begsu.
