When Hitler and Russia joined hands, the Japs turned broad smiles on Uncle Sam and said that all differences should be buried; when firing ceased on the Russo-Japan border, their smiles turned to scowls. Such conformity to style is not in the best Japanese manner. By the rules the United States has the least to fear from Japan when she frowns, most to fear when she smilingly says, "So sorry." The rules, however, are being changed so rapidly by others that Japan may merely be taking a turn at the new big-league game herself.

CHAWER FORTY-TWC SHOT'S FOOLISH hope of having a chance to kill Luis Escobar with an axe fortunately did not materialize. For one thing, Escobar did not atoop to address the prisoner again directly. He was a commander of an army, however disreputable the army might be, and as such he not only was very busy, but he had a definite dignity to maintain. He' contrived to be rather pompous when he walked across the camp grounds with orderlies at his heel?. He could not waste time seeing one hapless prisoner. Escobar's camp cooks saw to It that Shot kept busy, and neglected to mention when, where and what he himself was to eat when meal time came. H» had had no breakfast. He slaved all morning preparing food for other people. When it was cooked, its savor was more powerful than the urge in him to kill Luis Escobar. "I'm too weals to do any fighting: anyhow, now," he reasoned, "truthfully. "I got to scrape up some grub." He almost literally hnd to scrape it up, too. He dared .lot try to eat any of the -beef that had been prepared for the three or four hundred men he saw about the place, any of the hard flat tortilla bread that had been cooked, nor any of the steaming- peppery stew. *His principal aim was to give satisfaction in his present status so that he would not be tied hand and foot and locked up again. Free of bonds this way, he just might be able to grab a chance to run or fight or accomplish something. So he ignored the food he helped prepare until the main cooks themselves s-at down to eat. Then he picked u-i t!:c smelly cowhide he had skinned off that morning-. Flie.^swar.».ed away, but lie saw that strips of lean meat clung to it. and numerous bits of tallow. Unobtrusively he pulled oiV j a handful of the leaner pieces and laid them on a rock near his fire. In ten minutes they hnd cooked to an edible state, and he devoured them with as much relish ss lie had ever shown,.for any meal in all his life. He felt much better, stronger. after that, and so rather boldly gave thought to coffee that had been prepared in great tubs. When they had been emptied, he saw a quart or so of loose grounds in one tub. Under the guise of washing it. he managed to heat a small bit of water in those old grounds and boil out some of the stimulant for himself. He could not maneuver any bread, nor stew, but he didn't need it. The beef and the stolen coffee made a Hew man of him. He began Studying the camp with minute care, looking for any possibility of escaping, however remote. All day horsemen had been going and coming. Overhearing conversation and crisp military orders, he knew that most of thev soldiers j F ,. trn a lldge not too far awa were either drilling or having tar i rcrh:-.s two or three miles, smoke get practice a mile away.

Doubt less they would plan to tie him o lock him up for the night. Just be fore they did so, he'd make his break, win or lose. He had man aged to conceal a butcher knife under his shirt. At the last momen he would snatch a gun if possible or rely on his wood axe. Or better— just dash tr a saddled horse, laj low on the saddle, and trust to th Mexicans' poor aim. Twilight woulc be the best hour for sue'ii an effort be poor, yet a horse coulu still see to run.

He would have to head foe rough country with plenty of rocks and brush, hoping to out-run his pursuers and then lose them. He wanted, if possible, to head back north toward the United States and toward Lorena. The more he thought of Lorena, the more gloom settled upon him. Whatever had happened to h"-, he wondered. He had promised to come back to her before dawn, and here was another sunset at hand; All at once, squatting poking the fire. Shot's alert eyes caught something on the horizon. he moved aside and saw that it was at a ciistar Frcm a thanked his Mellow autumn is just outside the door; there is calm where abundance has been taken from the fields; out yonder the way to happiness is through quiet paths— except in<»that human beings, in their infinite wisdom, don't enough to take advantage of it, nc Indians used in the warfare days rf 60 years ago.

Naturally, most of them were chronic or recurrent. The single acute headache is a very simple affair. If the patient is not subject to headaches, it invariably may be put down as the result «£ some form of toxicity—to a poison—either the poison of a begin- Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. ning fever, something absorbed in the blood from the stomach or intestines, or the hangover headache from alcoholic excess. The cure is equally easy—time, rest and aspirin. In examining these 600 or more people who fell into this classification—it took me nearly two years— I was struck with the absence of or- fftnic disease. The medical student U always reminded that brain tumor U frequently ushered in with a headache. Yet, I detected not one tingle case of brain tumor in my Undoubtedly the nature of B>y material accounted for this. The in tumor headache makes a tty eick patient, who is spotted put under medical care before his to «it around a clinic.

One conclusion was that unwanted visitors cause headaches more often than physical disorders. Other causes listed were loud voices, the prospect of unwelcome tasks, dislike of other people, worry, insomnia and insults. My colleague, Mr. Runyan, whose medical writings I greatly admire, says that this list is incomplete because nothing was said about "seconds." "Seconds" are race horses that come in second when you expected them to come in first. I hope the impression will not gain ground that this is intended to be flippant or facetious. On the contrary, it is intended to be helpful and to show these people what is really the matter with them. In most instances their headaches are very mysterious to them, and they never understand that they are a purely nervous reflex. In Conynon Speech Yet, the connection is one that should be understood, for it has passed into common speech. A "second" horse, as we say, is a "headache." A person with a loud voice is a "headache." So is a business that is going bad, or an unwanted visitor, or an unwelcome task. The nervous headache is likely to be described as a "pressure," or like a cap pressing down on the head, a steel band, etc. In treatment the important thing is not to waste money on non-essentials—the teeth being elaborately fixed, or eyeglasses, etc. EDITOR'S NOTE; Dr. Clendenln« hu §«v«n pamphlet* which can be obtained by re»d«n.

Immediately after noon his duty ; Ke wondered what the Mexicans again was to butcher steers, for it could be doin? with signals like the would take a crew of men six ha hours to prepare th* night meal. aaying nothing when the cooks suited him and barked orders at him. Since he also had to keep the outdoor fire going—it was useci .-nainly for heating water with which dishes were washed—he wa.= able to cook himself still more hi is of food. Some of these he ate. Others he quietly stuffed in his pockets for possible emergency use. and a handful or two he hid in the wooc! pile. He had made up liis mind by four or five that evening to wori: obediently until nightfall, then everyone of the soldiers, including Escobar, had come back into camp, he observed. If th» signals were meant for this camp he could see no recognition of them, nobody "Sa-a-a-ny!" Shot murmured then, working there alone. Suddenly his heart went pounding. He remembered another day wlien he and Lorena had been keeping ccm-.any and talking ebout all manner of things. "My lorrly, I .vonder if she—if she—!" Ke hardly dared phrase It even looked around to see some means of answering. He would need a blanket, an old sack, some green brush or—there, the wet cowhides! Bloody and pliilble, they could serve as a blanket t8 muffle the fire. He controlled himself so as not to act suspiciously, but got one of the green, hairy hides he had skinned off that afternoon and with it pretended to fan a contrary blaze. He put on some more twigs and fuel to mislead anyone who might be watching. H glanced hastily around. N'obody seemed to be paying any attention. This was the" busiest hour in the long cook tent. Others wore preparing for the meal elsewhere. Shot flopped the wet hide over his fire. His sn;oke column stopped, cut off abruptly. Quickly he jerked the hide off. A black puff floated up. He flopped the hide on—off anc on—off and on—off and on—and off. Perfect "dots" went upward, drifting just a little in the gentle evening air. He waited two or three minutes and repeated the maneuver, his h^art pounding lest he be detected at it. While waiting- he tried to appear as busy as possible, swinging his axe at kindling wood. Whoever made the other signal? caught his answer immediately, he soon knew. For that horizon flre showed further puffs or "dots," too, a sure recognition. Then It faded out entirely. "She's put out her flre to keep from being seen!" Shot guessed. That's Lorena! Bound to be. She saw me. She must have the field glasses. She'? up there sending me encouragement—by lordy, what E girl!" He wished to goodness he and Lorena had practiced their Indian smoke signals still more that day a week or two ago, so that they might have exchanged definite messages. But no matter. A grand lation had swelled, within him. ^orena—what a girl! Maybe she had help lurking in the hills, or maybe she didn't. No matter. He elt that all the bandit soldiers in Christendom couldn't keep him rom her now. He didn't know how le could escape, but he would cer- ainly show Senor Escobar some <ind of excitement before this light was over. (To Be Continued) The Gilbert K.
