To remedy this defect, the first Congress after the adoption of the Constitution passed and submitted to the States for ratification n series of ten Amendments, which were duly ratl- fled and declared In force on Dee. '16, 1701. . The' Eleventh Amendment was passed In 1793, and declared In force Jan. 8, 1798. ; The Twelfth Amendment was added in 1803, and from then until the ( tjrne of the Civil War no others yrere adopted. ,' The Thirteenth, Fourteenth and fifteenth Amendments were embodied' in J865, 1808 and 1870, respectively, as pnrt of the Government's Reconstruction policy, securing to the liberated slaves the benefits of citizenship. • . ; The Sixteenth (Iqeome Tax) and Seventeenth (Election of Senators) Htaendriients were adopted on Feb. 85 and May 81, 1913, respectively. .The Eighteenth (Prohibition) Amendment came into force on Jan.

"It's just because I—look pretty tonight. And that's Judith's fault nnd not mine. As n rule I'm quite colorless: I don't even know how to enjoy living." Her voice was soft and a little plaintive. David's lips were against her hair, now. They strayed down to the cheek that was turned away from him. "I wish," he said very gently, "Uint I had n chance to teach you." Ho slipped a hand beneath her (Ciln nnd turned her face towards him.Its promise of beauty had been fulfilled. As he bent towards her she thought fleetlngly of Edwin nnd his gentlemanly self-control, and a wrnllh of a smile lifted the corners ct her mouth; thought of hei mother's admonition about "holding one's self sacred for one's husband," and knew a moment of panic. She drew away from him anc! looked squarely into his eyes. "I don't even," she told him recklessly, "know how to kiss you. I've never kissed anyone but relatives In my life." She hnd expected him to laugh. Or to scoff; because every other girl she knew hnd kissed someone, anyone. Instead he looked thoughtful. "I believe you," he said at last. "And you don't know how glad I am that you haven't." He kissed her then, very gently at first, nnd she was surprised that his lips should be soft when his arms were so hard. She hadn't really thought of it before. She returned the kiss, simply, and felt his lips quicken upon hers. l"You precious, precious child," he muttered. When the tumult nnd the shout Ing had died for the evening Judith made her way to David's room and perched herself upon his bed. She was clad in a pair of vivid Chinese pajamas and her eyes were dangerously bright. "Of course," she began, "you're the apple of my eye and all that sort of thing, but I'll poison you If you break Emily's heart." David looked squarely at her. "You're a flattering beast. In another minute you'll be telling me not to set fire to the state orphan asylum." Judith helped herself to a cigaret from his bedside table. "Oh, I c'on't mean that you'd do it deliberately, darling; you never do. It's just that you'll have to hid your fatal light under a bushel. You've already been making love to her, darn you!" David's look didn't falter. "I'm no St. Francis, you know. If you didn't expect me to fall, why on earth did you bring her down here and push her into my arms?" "I wish I knew," Judith confessed. "I was so interested In seeing what she'd do to you that I overlooked what you might do to her." "Has it occurred to you that I might be serious?" David demanded. Judith's eyes widened in mock amazement. "No. Why should it?" He scowled at her, then grinned. "Damn your impertinence! Get out before I throw you out." "Not until you promise to be good." His face softened. "I wouldn't hurt her," he said gently, "for anything in the world. At the rate I'm going, I'll be the one who needs protection soon." Judith got up and laid her hands upon his shoulders. "It's a promise, then?" He bent and kissed her. "It Is." A noise, determined and incessant, dragged Emily from the warm depths of sleep. Someone was pounding on their door. Judith lifted a rumpled head and at that instant David's voice, raised in song, sifted through the door. , "Awake my soul, stretch every nerve—'" he sang. Judith snorted. "Do you have to make that noise?" "I do," came the voice. "Are you both carefully burled?" "You didn't think, did you," Judith called back, "that we'd be doing our exercises?" "Then," said the muffled voice, "I'm coming: In." The gasp of protest died on Emily's lips. David was already inside, leaning negligently against the foot of the bed, David, beautifully shaved and glowing, wearing the hunting shirt and the disreputable riding breeches. His smile was so gay and so utterly lacking In self- consciousness that she .was suddenly ashamed of her horror. "Shouting through that heavy door," he explained plaintively, "had all the privacy of a party telephone. I'd. already acquired a large and interested audience. I was wondering if either of you lilies of the field would like to ride over the place with me this morning." "I wouldn't," said Judith, "because I've sworn ever since Christmas that I was going to sleep until noon the first day I was at home. Emily might go."

Already she was learning to take things as they came with this astonishing family. "I'd love It." He smiled his approval. "Stout fella!" Then to Judith: "Is this craving for sleep real? Because I really wanted to take you." Judith's eyes were warm. "You idnrllng. Yes, It's real. Take me this afternoon?" "Gladly." He turned once more to Emily. "Will you breakfast a la John Bully or Hollywood?" "Which Is which?" ' "Oh, kippers and bloaters and the like from the sideboard, or coffee and grapefruit in bed?" She considered. "Since I haven't ridden In three months, perhaps I'd better begin to practice eating from the sideboard. Besides, I've never eaten a bloater." David chuckled delightedly. "Neither have I. But If I can find a bicycle pump we'll have them. I'll give you ten minutes," he said, as the door closed behind him. Riding over Carrolton with David had all the glamor of a voyage of discovery. The sunlight was pure gold and the meadows were green velvet. All the hands stopped to talk, and David's interest was flattering and unfailing.

SILVER DUST ON HAIR LONDON (fi>) —Smart women dust silver powder over their hair in the evening. DALLAS EXPOSITION WILL NOT COMPETE WITH SAN ANTONIO IN STAGING OF HISTORY PAGEANT DALLAS, Sept. 23. — Walter D. i Cllne, former director of the | Texas Centennial Central Expo-; stitlon corporation, said recently the central exposition had no intention of competing with San Antonio in the staging of a historical pageant. "We hops San Antonio spends $1,000,000 and puts on a pageant that will be the' feature of the entire celebration," be declared, in commenting en a letter written by San Antonio's committee of eleven to the United States commission for the Texas Centennial. The letter called the plan of Dallas to stage a pageant "a; clear-cut case of bad faith" after "Mr. Cline specifically advised Mr. (R. W.) Morrison they hnd received proposals from a number of people to furnish one-half the money If they would permit them to put on pageants or plays, but had decided they should do nothing about It." Cllne said the central exposition "can't compete" with the kind of pageant San Antonio is planning. "At the same time," he said, "we must have a well-rounded exposition and Intend to stage a few historical episodes for a nominal sum, primarily for the benefit of those vl$Itors who can not go on to San Antonio." In their letter, the committee of eleven said Otto Herold, assistant managing director of the central exposition, had "approached" Cecil B. De Mille, the movie producer, about staging the Dallas pageant. San Antonio, the committee .said, had "hoped to secure the services of Mr. De Mille." "We are not interested in bringing Mr. De Mille here," Cllne said, "and are not particularly interested in that angle at all. We don't have the money to stage that kind of a show. "You might as well say we'll be competing with Port Worth's livestock show as to say we'll compete with San Antonio's pageant. We're going to have a livestock exhibit, but It won't be anything like Fort Worth's fat stock show. Neither will our little pageant compete with the one San Antonio is planning." Cullen F. Thomas, United States commissioner to the Texas Centennial, said that because of his position he felt it "indelicate and improper to make any comment at this time." WRECKING RELIEF ROLLS TO BE BEGUN IN TEXAS IN WEEK SAN ANTONIO, Sept, 23.—Toping to begin a systematic wrecking of relief rolls in Texas within a week, state Works Progress administration officials today were perfecting final plans for the execution of projects. With State Project Director E. A. Baugh's report that Texas had requested a federal expenditure of $176,570,000 in the state, Administrator H. P. Drought announced that the promotional phase of WPAj work is completed. Works division staff member were summoned to San Antonio to receive instruction on the actual executions of projects which have been proposed. District engineering staff members were called to state WPA headquarters by Baugh last Friday and Saturday. Coincidentally, women's work supervisors from the twenty Hexas WPA districts were convened for instructions from Mrs. M. K, Taylor, state women's work consultant. "We hcpe to have men at work on the first $1,500,000 in projects by next week," Baugh declared today. "This represents the amount ap- proved for Texas at this time by federal authorities and will include work projects in every Texas WPA district." Although the vast bulk of last- minute projects rushed into the state office for approval last week made exact computations impossible at this time, Baugh explained, engineers reported the 176 millions as the approximate total approved by state examiners for Texas. Included in the figure were 21 statewide and multi-district proposals asking approximately $95,940,000 In federal funds, Baugh reported. The remainder of the total was contained in local projects sponsored by agencies in the various districts. Federal approval of a considerable' proportion of these requests will leave state WPA officials a wide latitude for the selection of the more worthwhile of the projects submitted, Baugh pointed out. "Although the 176 millions requested obviously will be more necessary to provide work for the state's employables on relief rolls, MOBILIZES SOLDIERS — PORT TOWNS WOULD BE EVACUATED ROME, Sept. 23 f/P)—Two hundred thousand soldiers of the classes of 1911, 1912, 1913, and 1914 reported for duty today, bringing Italy's total military mobilization to the 1,000,000 Premier Mussolini promised would be under arms before October 1. At the same time, authorities nt Naples, Palermo, Tnrnnto, Bari, Brindisi, and other Italian ports and cities, particularly in the south, distributed questionnaires to their citizens as a preparation for their evacuation if necessary. The questionnaire was entitled: "Evacuation of the population in case of mobilization." It asked the number in the family, the citizenship, and whether the family has its own means of transportation. The card then says: "The family will voluntarily leave the city on receiving the order and will betake itself to the town of—." The name of the town is Inserted. The questionnaire notifies the residents that if they are engaged in occupation requiring their continued presence in port cities, they must make application to port authorities, after which they will be given the necessary permit to remain. Citizens who do not have their own means of transportation will be moved by the military authorities. The soldiers brought under the colors today are those of "category C" of the four classes. They are the men who served only three months in the army. Simultaneously with the distribution cf the questionnaires in the coastal cities came a similar distribution in hill n'ld mountain towns behind the seaports. • These latter questionnaires demanded to know how many rooms the citizens hnd, declaring that space must be made for certain other numbers of persons when they arrive on a moment's notice.

"Expenditure of such a huge amount in Texas is not contemplated," Baugh continued, "but it is to the interest of sponsors that we secure as large an allotment ns possible to insure the proper prosecution of deserving projects" Bound figure approximations of requests from the twenty districts follow: Marshal, $2,598,000; Tyler $2,638,000; Beaumont, $3,206,000; Dallas, $16,189,000; Palestine, $1,526,000; Houston, $7,162,000; Fort Worth, $7,481,000; Waco, $4,199,000; Austin, $6,417,000; San Antonio, $6,172,000; Laredo, $1,962,000; Wichita Falls, $4,402,000; Abilene, $3,984,000; Brownwood $1,302,000; Uvalde, $1,485,000; Amarillo, $1,512,000; Lubbock, $3,293,000; Big Springs, $698,000; San Angelo, $1,048,000; El Paso, $2,347,000.
