Lorena marveled at the casual I manner in which the details were | settled there in the dark. Escobar •was handcuffed in a car. Sheriff It lias been, and is, our view that theflct would better ' McDanieis shook hands with The ci tithe per- insure our neutrality, insofar as mere legislation can ever do that, if changes such as now recommended to the Senate by its foreign relations committee were adopted. Of these changes two are especially important, first is that which would prohibit American ships and 7/ens from, traveling in combat areas designated by president—would bar from national protection thoso sons or ships who saw fit to travel or maintain residence in those areas. The second is that which would allow sale of all goods. both war equipment and other supplies, both raw materials and manufactured articles, to any belligerent nation which would pay cash, take title to the goods here and remove them on other than American ships. Those who dislike this second provision—who favor retention of the present anus embargo amendment—are refusing to face the fact, we feel, that under the present amendment vast quantities of shipments, many of them intended for war purposes, are even now headed for Europe— and on American vessels at that. While not in possession of facts to support our guess, we'll wager that plenty of actual munitions are likewise flowing to Europe from the United States oven at present. consigned perhaps to neutral nations or others for transfer by some devious route to one or another of the belligerents. So why not have the procedure on an above-board basis, in which American ships and poisons are not involved in combat areas? To keep all shipments on a simple come- and-get-it basis, in our opinion, would set up a policy that could be followed clearly. Nothing is more likely to lead to our ultimate entanglement in the conflict than continuing to send our ships and citizens into danger zones, as the present law permits. If all the velps that come out of anv finance drive could i arm ' "Midnight!" be. sold at a cent a pound, the goal would be reached. ' "Shot's entitled to the thousand dollars put up by the county for a reward," the sheriff mentioned. "He'll git it. And didn't you match that, George?" "I did. He'll have my check tonight." "Well, uh, now you men just stand ready to testify that Escobar was took on American soil," the sheriff said, significantly "You all know us border folk have to sort of take technicalities in our own hands, in the name of justice. Shot, I want to see you in town, son." And with that the sheriff and his prisoner drove away. But his departure did not end the talking. In fact, the speculation and explaining and re-telling of the recent episodes lasted there until past midnight again. Everybody was tired, but not too tired to be interested and happy in the main. Every man, woman and child of the ranch personnel was present, except Jerry Dale and the Mexican cook, Concha Gonzales and her children. "It seems to me," said George Brazee, thinking over the exciting events, "that the luckiest thing was when you taught Lorena how to make Indian smoke signals. Shot. I reckon some good does come of courtin' after all!" Everybody laughed. And then little black Midnight popped up to say something. "I c'n make talk signals," he declared. "I been makin' 'em a heap. Me. I can signal with white cloths, Miz Gonzales she pay me reg'lar to climb up on the high cliff there and sig- j nal her folk." ! They all looked at him, not understanding. All, that is, except ! Shot Rogers and Lorena. These two { looked significantly at each other, then Shot grabbed the black boy's How Team Candidate Can Learn to Excel By Rigid Training By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D.' "TRAINING," in the athletic sense, implies that by special and directed efforts and practice you cap improve those functions of the body that are required for skill in playing a certain game. And from the standpoint of the physiologist this is sound doctrine. The ambitious football player in grade school or high school can depend upon it, that if he will begin to trajn himself, he will become more arid more adept, up to the limit of hia powers. Whether he will become Dr. Clendening will answer /questions of general interest only, and then only through "his column. a star or not is something that is on the laps of the Gods, or, rather, on the laps of his ancestors. Stars are born, but they are also made. All stars have trained, probably more thto the dub. .The football player needs strength, endurance, speed and accuracy. Strength and endurance are partly born in the body, but will always W developed as any kind of training "Continues.

A friend of mine used to attend vaudeville with me in the old days when there was vaudeville, and whenever we watched acrobats he used to say, "I don't see those fel- ows up there in nice clean tights and spangles. I see a couple of dirty, shabby guys in an attic or a oft or a gymnasium endlessly dong over and over again what they are doing so smoothly now." That s true of any star performance from piano playing to football. It is ;he hard and eternal practice all by yourself with no contest, no crowd applaud, going over the same thing again and again, that is "training." Question of Senses Accuracy is a question of the senses and the finer adjustments of the nervous system. You must train your marginal vision, train hand and eye to work in unison. The eye must follow the ball into the hand in catching. It must be on the exact objective in passing. The hands are the hardest of all to train. I have seen two football players sit for hours three yards apart and end lessly pass the ball from one to the he demanded, Intently. "Are you serious ?

I has to climh up there over the house—way up there, see?" The lad pointed to the great cliff that loomed behind them almost frighteningly in the night "It's a heap of fun.

Mrs. Orval Sanders and daughter, Martha, of Spring Lake, were the guests of relatives at Custer last week-end. David, Sime and Hime Fisher were at Walkerville Sunday, Oct. 1, where they were guests at the Caplon home. Philip Wines, who has been : ill, arrived in Custer Monday to I spend some time at his home [ here. I Mr. and Mrs. Emil Kreitlow and grandson, Bobby, called at Lorena exhaled deeply, then moved In very close to him. What messages did you night? send?" "I nevuh asked nobody, ma'am. Miz Gonzalez, she nevuh say." "Concha's gone!" Sally Brazee exclaimed. "She left right after Shot came in with the news, I declare! She took her children. She wasn't here to help at supper and I couldn't find her anywhere!" The' deductions were obvious. Midnight's chance revelation opened the discussion anew, excited interesting talk on every side. It became plain to all of them that Concha, the cook, was one of Escobar's hirelings, the ranch spy who had confounded the American fighting men. By her simple act of climbing to the cliff top and signaling to Escobar's outposts on distant observation points, or of having Midnight do it, she could keep Escobar informed reasonably well of the ranch men's movements. Perhaps, too, she had other means of sending messages to the bandit leader's camp. Everybody had a speculation about it, it seemed. "I declare," said Sally Brazee, tremulously, when it all became clear to her, "I've got to go inside and have a good cry! Lorena, you want to come in now?" Lorena did not answer. A few peopl~ looked around, but Lorena wasn't in sight, and presently a cowboy explained, "Her and Shot, they walked up towards the windmill, Miss Sally." The men all smiled, and Sally went inside, and George Brazee said: "Well, boys, I reckon we'll have to arrange another dance celebration since you finally caught Escobar, so let's get some sleep in now." But young Midnight, the black boy, slipped off into the shadow of night. Only the black orphan, therefore, sa%v or heard the highly personal little drama there where the pumped water ran. And he didn't understand most of it. "—and so we just couldn't help suspecting him, Shot!" Lorena was saying. "But for Uncle George and Aunt Sally's sake, as well as his own, I'm glad Jerry was innocent. Let's never mention it." "I reckon I owe him an apology for thinking he might be a spy," Shot murmured. "No. You had every right to sus- seal. pect him. Yo- and I. But we didn't tell him so. Jerry's just conceited. And lucky—it was his luck that enabled him to see Escobar's men raiding at the Hump. Conchi- did some expert spying for Escobar that time, too." "I brought you Escobar's sword, Lorena. For a souvenir." "I'll love if And Shot—Jerry proposed to me today!" "Good lordy!" exclaimed Shot, turning quickly to face her. "Why, I—why, Lorena, I been planning to do that myself!" "So?" "Why, yes, ma'am! Honest to gosh, Lorena, I—" the young man swallowed hard. "Say, you told him •no,' didn't you,? You didn't encourage him none—any?" He had grasped Lorena's shoulders and was shaking them a little now in the stress he felt. Lorena wished she could see his face. Shot blushed so easily! "I told him I wasn't ready to be married yet," she said. "Why, Lorena—Lorena! I—why, honey girl! I had been hoping—I— honestly—oh, lord, Lorena, I love you so much I'm about crazy! I've loved you since you got off the train in Blanco, so help me I have! You—we've been through a lot of things out here, but—Lorenla, I ain't—I mean I'm not worth a hang, really. I haven't got anything to speak of. But I'll get $2,000 rewa:«l money—it's rightly yours—can't you figure maybe—?" "Shot, you are hurting my shoulders!" "—maj'be you didn't mean what you told Dale? I aim to settle down. Honest I do! You—we— there's some good ranch land to be had cheap now—look, Lorena, I'll be good to you—I promise! I'll break my back working. I'll—%vhy, honey girl—!" The earnest young man was trembling a little, Lorena exhaled deeply, then moved in very close to him and rested her hlad on his breast and reached one slender arm around him to pat hii on the shoulder. Shot kissed her hungrily, and was exalted by the ardor witii which she kissed him back. "Whoc-weeeee!" breathed Mttle black Midnight, from the shadows beside the windmill.
