The first such shows were held in 1900 in New York and other big cities, and they have continued through succeeding year's. Now they are ready for another year, with models that belie anything ever produced or dreamed of even so short a time as a decade ago. The new models are the engineering insult of 40 rears of astounding progress in a giant industry. At the first auto show in 1900, a car was driven around a track, dodging barrels. The reason for the strange antics was merely that its demonstrators were trying to convince skeptical prospects that the contraption, without leather reins or other direct and visible means of control, could actually be guided. So the driver dodged cautiously in and around a row of ban-els just to prove his point. Those who bought cars in that day chugged somewhat uncertainly down dirt or mud roads in vehicles without tops, lights, windshields, bumpers or fenders. The models were horseless buggies, literally. Furthermore, those cars sold at about six times as much per pound as the cars of today and they cost 10 times as much per mile to operate as the modern car. Comfort, enjoyment and better living in innumerable ways have been made passible with the development of the automobile. Industries supplying an amazing variety of j materials have been benefited. New businesses have arisen I to supply motoring accessories and to cater to the motorists in thfeir wide roam ings. .The entire road system has been rebuilt on an unbelievable basis and innovations in tourist accommodations have appeared rapidly. In fact, much of our life in America rests on balloon tires and were that one ccmimodity alone to be taken away the changes would be tremendous. The automobile, in its 40 years of life on this earth, has done more to change our American civilization than any other single factor. well TOO, TOO GOOD In. a post mortem discussion Tuesday of the recent World series we were quite impressed over the amount of conversation regarding whether or not the Yankees could be "that good." To us, it seems that no one, especially after the four- straight performance that ended Sunday, could very argue that point. The trouble is, they are too good. ' For four seasons Manager McCarthy's men romped through the American league and gone on, in October, to demolish the fair-haired of the National league Last year they made it four in a row over the Chicago Cubs and now, of course, they have repeated the feat in the faces of the Reds of Cincinnati. ' Big league baseball is a great institution, but as a sideline fan we are among those who are tired of seeing it made a Yankee monopoly. Oh for the good old days of, say, five or six years ago, when the World series was a contest' and not an annual "blitzkrieg." Sally Cordon Is at Hill Rouse for a vacation, at the instigation or her friend, Rhoda. At Hill House Sally meets Mrs. Peake, the proprietor, her •on, Neal, and Rhoda. At dinner Sally meets the others: Mrs. Peake's daughter, Josie; Coral East on, in love with Neai: Mrs. Rutherford: hef daughter, Pauline, also in love with Neal, and her son, Dr. Paul Rutherford. Mrs. Rutherford tells of a prowler she heard the night before. Bruce Orton, Joseph Barry and Duncan Abbot. Rhoda's fiance, complete the household at the summer resort. That evening Sally overhears bits of a queer conversation la the garden. CHAPTER FTV.-S THERE SEEMED a subtle menace In the words: "It has to be done and the sooner the better," though why they should impress me that way I could not understand. Quietly I waited, hoping the figures would reappear and I would hear more. But no sound broke the stillness; there was no movement in the shadow of the shrubbery banked spite fence. Curiosity triumphed. I made up my mind I was going to find out where those figures had gone. I walked across the terrace and stepped down to the lawn. The closely clipped grass had just been watered. My thin shoes were soaked before I reached the high rhododendrons. At the front of the house the picket fence was attached to an iron post driven deep into the ground within an inch of the twenty-foot wooden post which was the beginning of the spite fence. There wasn't room for a mouse to squeeze between the two. I knew the figures had not crossed the lawn to the gateway. The open stretch of lawn was under my eyes every moment of the time. They must have gone down the length of the fence and around the back out to the road on the other side of the house or—into the house itself. I was convinced that they had done the last. But why slink back out of sight when the light was snapped on ? It was a riddle I could not solve. My feet were wet and I was beginning to shiver with the damp and cold. I walked the length of the spite fence and back, crossed again to the terrace and entered the lounge. Josie was sitting there alone. "I was wondering if you had gone to bed," she greeted me. "No, I was too tired to go motoring. I've had my share of that today, yet I don't, feel at all sleepy. I suppose the answer to that is that I had a grand nap before dinner," I replied. •"Then come and sit down here for a while," she invited. "I'll start the fire..It's coming in foggy and when it does it is always chilly, no matter how warm the day has been." She knelt before the fireplace as she spoke and, striking a match, she applied it to the fire lighter which she then thrust between the SCOTTVILLE News From.

This kind of assurance has caused a great deal of trouble in after-life. It is true that the baby teeth are soon lost, but they lay the f ounda- tion tor the permanent set of teeth. They should be cared for in spite of the fact that they are only temporary visitors, for they play a big part in the health, happiness and well-being of the child. If they become decayed, the decay may advance into the jaw and cause permanent damage. The hygiene of the child's mouth should begin as soon as the first of tht baby teeth appear. Perhaps it is not vitally important to the actual Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest 'only, and then only through 'his column. cal health of the child that les- ia tooth brushing should occur ' r as three or four years.

Listen, cant you hear the foghorn?" Faintly to my ears came a long melancholy note. It was the first time I had ever heard it. It was an eerie sound, seeming to fit in with the other strange incidents of the night. Josie, still crouching on the hearth, laughed up at my intent face. "I never heard a foghorn before," I confessed, smiling back at her. Then, as my glance traveled from her bright face down her pretty dress to her slippers, I noticed that slippers and dress hem were as wet and bedraggled as mine. Could she have been the woman I had heard speak outside? The voice in the night I had heard before— of that I was positive—but lack of familiarity with its tones prevented me then and later from naming the speaker. Then, another thought came to me. I couldn't distinguish the forms of the speakers. It might have been two men, one of them Neaf Peake. a time when the body is growing J Hls volce was 8O llke Josie's I and many demands for calcium are j "^Sht easily have mistaken it for a woman's.

Parents should watch this particular tooth very carefully and see that oral hygiene is carried out specially. Many a mouth has been wrecked by neglect of this knowledge.

The other teeth It was or was not she or Neal I had heard speaking, but in vain. Josie rose gracefully to her feet and sank down on the davenpori by my side. "I wish Rhoda hadn't gone out tonight," she said wistfully. "I'd like to talk to you both." "Well, I'm here. You can talk to me," I said lightly. "And Rhoda'i: be back later if it's important." She gazed into the fire, a puzzled expression on her face, while I, watching her, wondered what she was thinking. She turned to me so suddenly that I almost jumped. "Rhoda's been coming here so many summers that we're reaJ friends," she began. "She's told me How self-reliant you are. I wish you'd be my friend, too." Her voice held an appealing note. I leaned over and laid my hand over hers, which was clenched into a hard, cold little fist at her side. "I'd love to be your friend," answered heartily. "If there's anything I can help you with, let me hear it." With a beaming smile, she accepted my offer. "What did you think of Mrs. Rutherford's story tonight?" Her brown eyes looked searchingly into min*. "About the prowler, you mean?" She nodded. "Why—" I began lamely, and then stopped. I couldn't tell her my crazy sizing up of the persons at her mother's table and my further speculations. "Yes, go on," she spoke breathlessly. "I didn't know what to think," I began again. She had asked me to be her friend. If I w_s to be that, I must be truthful. I went on slowly, picking my words that I might not inadvertently say anything to hurt her. "It seems a queer thing to me to have a prowler here. It isn't as though this were one of the swanky hotels with rich women flaunting their jewels about. I don't believe it was a jewel thief," I finished bluntly. "Nor do I, although I mentioned it." "And I do not believe was here at three o'clock anyone to look The annual chficken supper, served by the Ladies' Aid society of the Methodist church, was a decided success, both financially and socially.

Pretty fall flowers centered each table with bright red apples forming additional decoration. The supper was served country style and an abundance of delicious food was served. Mrs. Harriett Meads, president of the Aid, served as hostess, greeting the guests. Chairmen responsible for the supper were: Mrs. W. J.

"That's just what I told mother and Neal. But what was anyone after here at that hour? If Rhoda hadn't said what she did, I should always believe that Mrs. Rutherford was dreaming. But Rhoda never wakes up at night unless something disturbs her. I've known her to sleep through the darnest hullabaloo." "What is on that side of the house besides the cottage the Ruth- erfords occupy?" I asked. "Well, there's their cottage, and beyond it is another one.

Have you anything worth stealing? Any old familj jewels or papers about a long-lost heir or anything like that?" I was half laughing as I spoke. It seemed such a ridiculous thing to say; almost as though I had a movie complex. But Josie took me seriously "No, I'm positive we haven't anything that is of importance tc anyone. Mother inherited this houst from her father, just as Miss Ivj did hers." "The thing which puzzles me th« most." I said musingly, "is whj the prowler walked toward the spite fence, then back, and wher the light came on RAN away." "That fence!" Josie almost wailec the words. "At first I thought il was funny—funny that anyone, especially an own sister, would be sc silly and spiteful. Then, this last few months it has seemed to worrj mother, and I'm sure Neal knows something he won't tell me." She turned her hand over and :ook mine in a hard grip. "I'm frightened, Sally. Really frightened." I looked keenly at her. She wasn't putting it on. She was actually shaking, and her face was so white and distressed I pitied her. "Don't let it get you down," I counseled. "There's nothing to tighten you in an old board fence, nor in the woman who built it— even though she ia ugly enough to stop an electric clock." "It isn't the fence itself or Miss vy. She hates Neal and me, but ,ve don't care. It's mother I'm worried about. She hasn't acted like herself for a long time, and just ately I've caught her crying— wice. Why don't she and Neal tell me what the trouble is? Why do hey shut me out? I'm not a child! i there's trouble coming, I can bear it as well as they can." "Suppose you tell me all about it," I suggested. "All you know or suspect—anything at all you think has any bearing on the matter— and I'll see if I can make sense out of it." I settled back among the pillows preparatory to listening, but before Josie could speak the door into the wing corridor flew open and Pauline Rutherford catapulted in. Her eyes were wide and staring, her face white and frightened. "Where's Neal?" she cried shrilly. "Paul wants him. Hurry! Hurry!"
