Most, of us, we believe, realize fairly well that the problem of, the, United States shipping industry, like many another problem created by our effort to preserve neutrality by law, is anything but simple. Most laymen know that great sacrifices must be made if we are to stay out of war. But we face that prospect in the absolute certainty that, whatever they may be, they will be far, far less than the sacrifices war would demand. Wednesday's final decision in regard to transferring registry of ships is a case in point. It is a serious blow to some shipping interests, of course. .But it is a guard against war. Passing a neutrality law, only to have various interests figure out clever ways to evade it, doesn't make sense. The president and a big majority of both Houses stood firmly for the neutrality act. They should stand equally firmly for its effective enforcement. Side-stepping terms of the act, even when technically legal, should he accompanied by an out-and-out understanding that American sympathies and American protection in.such instances are neither to be given nor expected. WRITTEN FOR AND RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION AS WOMEN SEE IT A nation-wide poll among women drivers, made by The Ladies' Home Journal, shows that fi8 ]>ercent of those questioned thin-k dangerous drivers should have their cars marked. It w'as agreed, however, that it is usually the driver rather than the car which causes the accident. So 87 percent voted to deny dangerous drivers the right to operate cars. ..When acked if automobile companies should build faster cars, 96 percent said no. Ninety-four percent object to advertising that emphasizes speed. Ninety-seven percent are for the suggestion that all states should license drivers as well as cars. Ninety-three percent favor an age of at least 16 years before permits are issued, whereas 5C» percent think drivers should l>e at least 18 and 11 percent advocate 21 • Women are not unanimous in the. belief that they are safer.drivers than men.. Thirty-five percent -said men were more -prudent operators, while 24 percent voted for fromen an.dj4-l i>ercenf «aw no difference between the sexes as such. ftis,"our observation that in the long run .women's opinions usually prevail. So safety experts might do well to .study the survey carefully, AS. a preview of public'opinion of the near future. How Boil Crops Are Cultivated By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. WE ARE frequently interrogated as to how to stop crops of boils, and as to why boils tend so often to follow one another in a succession of aggravating infec- tiorts. The cause of boils is one of the pus-forming germs, usually staphylococcus, and it is quite possible that a special variety of staphy- Dr. Clendening will answer • questions of general interest Only, and then only through a column. lococcus must be present on the akin to cause the boil. Staphylococci are in .the air everywhere and constantly on the akin of the hands, face and neck. 'he site, of boils is usually in a • region of the skin, the fore- and the neck being the most frequent habitations. Undoubtedly, hpld the hair follicles anicaliy responsible for the ation of boils. It is easy to see, that If a special variety of us does make an en- nto a Hair follicle and cause When that boll breaks, the fid over the. surrounding ng tne. particular caus- and ro'p?' of boU»T Beside* ,onity \nduced by a, boil vigorous, and it even 4 of creating im- k « bypw- the core forms, the patient, rightly, feels that that ia the end of that particular bit of trouble. When a patient has htyi a series of boils and reddened area is detected about the shaft of a hair, the beginning of a new one may b_e suspected. It is possible sometimes to abort its development by boring down the air shaft with a needle, the point of which has been dipped in carbolic acid. The repeated application of tincture of iodine to a developing boil may somewhat limit its growth. Poulticing is a time-honored method '.of treating boils, but surgeons believe that it tends to spread the infection to new areas by incubating the bacteria as they escape and macerating the surrounding skin. Hot dressings of saturated boric acid are not open to this objection. Such a hot compress should be generous and must be kept hot and continued for several hours a day. Carbuncles Similar Carbuncles are diffuse infections of the skin similiar to boils, except that boils infect a single pocket. The back of the neck is the common site for carbuncles. A large number of skin follicles and the constant pressure by the collar are responsible. for the frequency of the involvement of this - region. Woman nowadays do not have carbuncles of the neck, whereas Jn the'old days of the stiff whalebone collar they were very common. Carbuncles are far more serious •nd more difficult to treat than or- then, been most - dinary boils, and definitely require professional rather than borne care. >R'f NOTEt Pr, Ctenteatnt tuu —"•*• wUcb «*n b* obtained by punphUt Mb (or 10 ecnu.

I resolutely kept my eyes on my paper and my pencil ke£t pace with her words. "And now, Captain Lancy, I have certainly told you all you wish to know." Once more she was the drawly voiced, arrogant lady. "Just one more question," smiled Lancy. His voice was so gentle and soft that Carol was entirely at her ease. She literally jumped when it changed, and he snapped at her: "To whom did you say 'Just what do you think you accomplished. *by last night's work? Are you going to try the same game tonight?' " Her mouth actually dropped open in her surprise, "Why, I've already told you about that," she without a trace of hesi spoke to Joseph Barry al miserable automobile trie! Lancy leaned back in hi ind relaxed. Coral's reply spontaneous to admit of gull wan telling the plain truth this time If she never did again. "And when did you ask him those questions?" Lancy's tone was smooth and low. Coral's black brows worked swiftly. "Why, the very next night, of course," shs explained. "We were walking over to my cottage after that stupid game of hide and seek." "Thank you, Miss Easton. You have helped a great deal." Lancy was on his feet, ushering her out so deftly that she had no opportunity to say more, if she had wished to do so. I could hear him talking to someone just outside. I didn't know if he wanted me to go or not, but [ comforted myself with the thought that he hadn't told me to do so, and until he did I was stick- Ing. He barely glanced at me, as he came in, closely followed by Joseph Barry. How in the world did Lancy manage to have these persons jump to his command as he did? I learned later that he had picked upon Joseph Barry as the most likely person to have !*>en conversing with Coral if Neal were eliminated. Barry, therefore, had been suavely shepherded by a trooper to prevent any collusion with Coral, which explains his being at hand. "Take notes, Miss Gordon." Lancy's voice was curt, as he waved Barry to a seat. This interview was opening on a different note from the others. "I've just had Miss Easton's version of what happened Sunday evening, Barry. Suppose you give me yours." Barry's black eyes narrowed, and his lips parted in a disagreeable smile. I had had very little contact with him since I arrived at Winne- taumet. His beauty was slightly disturbing to a person used to ordinary members of the masculine sex. Now Inert was something about him which made my blood chill in my veins, although his voice was as smooth as mayonnaise as he answered the detective. "Not much to that. Captain Lancy. We went over to the club. Miss Easton wanted to get back nere early, about tej. she said, so we started in good season. Something went wrong with the car, and we sat there a good hour and a nair before a man came along who could help us. Luckily, he was a garageman and located the trouble In a few moments. I don't know a thing about automobiles." "I see. Then there isn't any truth m the story that you maneuvered a. breakdown to prevent her from keeping an appointment with Dr Peake?" "Did Miss Easton say that?" Barry laughed, a low musical sound which yet sent a shiver up and down my nerves. "Women," with a aly glance in my direction, "are rather prone to dramatize a situation, don't you think, Captain?" Lancy's unbelievable eyes were probing Barry's, but he manifested no discomfort He even laughed again, a soft amused chuckle this time, which plainly attempted to align Lancy with him against the """"°n" mentioned. there isn't any truth in the she told?" By his tone the detective apparently accepted "women" SCOTTVILLE News From Mason County's Second Largest City, Agricultural and Dairying Center MRS.

Barry's statement. "Hu-um!" Lancy's shapely fingers caressed his chin. "Yet she insists the story is TRUE." From under partly dropped lids Barry scanned the other's face. Suddenly he seemed to come to some mental decision. "Captain Lancy," tell me, why the questions about what was purely a personal matter? Just how does our ride tie in to this murder investigation?" "Just this way. Miss Easton was overheard to say: 'Are you going to try the same game tonight?' Naturally enough, it was immediately suspected that she was referring to the poisoning of Mrs. Rutherford and that the 'game' ended in Mrs. Peake's death. What have you to say to that?" "Only this!" Barry's face darkened angrily. "If Dr. Peake accuses me of having anything to do with Mrs. Rutherford's poisoning or his mother's death, he's a liar. I want just one thing from Dr. Peake—for him to mind his own business, leaving Miss Easton alone. And I intend to have it." Lancy's eyebrows lifted expressively. "I did not say that it was Dr. Peake who overhead Miss Easton speaking." "You did not say so, but who else would have bothered to listen to our conversation?" Barry's temper was rising. His eyes blazed and his shapely lips were drawn back into an almost animal snarl. "Why should I bring her back to meet him. when I—I who have loved her for years—" He stopped, and with an effort conquered his rage. And - the very fact that he was thus able to leash it made him a far more formidable opponent. "I did not understand the inferences which could be drawn from my—er—prevarication," he continued smoothly. "Yes, I did put the car out of commission. I would have done more than that to prevent her from meeting him that night. Ever since she met him, she has changed to me. We were to be married—it has been planned for years—she meets this young doctor, a mere boy, and I am tossed to one side. But he shall not have her. She is mine, mine, I tell you, and she shall marry no one else!" His cleft chin lifted itself haughtily, and I was willing to admit that, if it were not as out-jut- Bruce Orion's, it betrayed ready proved that. I am willing to bet that Barry doesn't know what fair play means. I looked at him, while these thoughts ran through my head. His voice was as low, even and smooth on his last word as it had been on his first, buLhis entire frame was quiverin^ana*fois long fingers were clenched Imajjng^ looking fists. "I can't seo 'what reason you could have had to kill Mrs. Peake," Lancy said, ho though thinking aloud. "She was determined that her son should not marry Miss Easton. Her v/ill shows that. She— "Who do YOU think killed her?" Lancy shot the question at Barry so suddenly that I jumped. Barry's entire frame stiffened. A film seemed to shoot over his face. The animation he previously showed was stilled. No one looking at him could gain any idea of his thoughts. His broad shoulders shlhagged expressively. His voice season.

She outlined the story ting just as much determination. ruthlessness and Confronted with Josie's love for Alan Murray, Bruce Orton professed himself willing to step aside if that were her wish. Barry, having heard Coral announce her engagement to Neal, still flatly declared his unswerving intention to marry her. Orton would play fair. He had al- plied: "I haven't the slightest Idea. How should I have?" "If you have," snapped Lancy, "it is your duty to tell it." "But I haven't. And, if I had, I should hesitate to make a guess which n»'ght be as misunderstood aa %vas Miss Easton's statement to^me." ""Anything you may say won't be misunderstood. I'll take care of that." Lancy spoke sternly. "Murder is murder. What do you know or suspect?" Barry's eyes widened. "Not a thing!" His voice was blandly assuring. Looking at him, I didn't believe one word he said. If he didn't know anything, then he suspected something. Such immobility of countenance was not normal. Why, I would have showed more emotion in discussing the death of a tramp dog. The faint suspicion which had lain in my heart for days sprang to full growth. If Joseph Barry didn't kill Mrs. Peake himself, he was mixed up in it In some way. He knew something, I was positive. Lancy felt the same way, he told me later. But, when I demanded why he didn't arrest Barry at that moment, his reply was that suspicion was not certainty and there wasn't one scintilla of proof. "Very well, you may go," he snapped now, and Barry, with a smile which made me want to throw the inkwell at him, swaggered out. "Now what?" I demanded, as Lancy did not speak again. "It's the toughest case I've ever handled," he declared. "I can't believe your young doctor did it Matricide is a crime I think he'a not capable of performing."
