During the past two years lie has failed rapidly. The change In tills comparatively short space of time Is marked. In fact, back In 1031 you would not have spoken of Austin as old. HI9 tmlr, now white, was no "Iron gray. There was a brightness to his eye,juj agility to his movements that are today but memories. Of those who have noted this marked change In Austin his son, Blaine, prob-ably has a more acute realization of It than any one. For Blaine and his father have been closely associated during the years past. " - There seems to be- a greater bond, a deeper sense of understanding between the pair than between most fathers and sons. -Not long ago, two years, In fact,' Blaine completed his schooling and went away to Boston to work. - There are those who say It was this separation that brought about the . change In Austin.- At any rate It was Blaine, whodiir-Ing his Infrequent visits at home, first noted the signs of advancing age. Fla attributed them, of .course, to his fathers years, and knew a feellhg of regret at the Inevitable. - Frequently he sought reassurance from his mother In regard to Austins health, and was relieved at the lack of alarm Mrs. Metcalf displayed ovbr the matter. For she Is a devoted wife and would, were there cause, be the first to feel concern. Blaine has been careful during the 'two years past never to express sympathy In his fathers presence or make Insinuations relaUve to the old mans Increasing tncapabllltlness; for Austin has always been a prideful man, and this pride has, It seems, become more poignant with advancing years. He does not admit a weariness of any description; belloves himself still physically able and' mentally alert The situation Is delicate, for Blaine must always be careful never to openly appear aware of his fathers deficiencies,' lest he give offense. And Blaine, pitying his father 3 6ep-ly, has found this task a hard one, especially when the two are playing pinochle. Blaine has played pinochle with hlk father since his grade school days. There has been a close, yet friendly, rivalry between the two. Their skill In the gam$ Is surprisingly well balanced they have kept tab on the games each has won and lost over a period of time, and on the eve of Blaines departure for his new Job these tabs are tallle up and found to be nearly equal, with Austin having the edge by a count of two. Blaine was glad- of f h!s when the results werfe given their final check and found accurate, for the old man took a sober delight In the game, and his pleasure at -thus finding himself In the lead was good to see. Blaine for his part found no time during the ensuing two years to reflect on these pinochle games, or to anticipate a continuance of the contest But with Austin It waS different -For -time lay heAvily now on his old mans hands and, as Is often the case with aged people, little things that have no particular place In the scheme of life loomed Important , I Ha looked forward -with no small amount of eagerness to Blaines homecoming, having In mind an evening of pinochle, with the old-time rivalry as an incentive for good flaying. - Blaine, though no longer feeling a keen Interest In the game, was nevertheless willing to piny If for no better reason than to indulge the old mans whim. ' They began a series of games which Austin called the Battle 'of Champions. And for a period of a year, during which they played not more than a dozen games at best the victories were evenly divided. , At tlmgs .during tbe course of a contest Bltmto would find his thoughts wandering yrom the business at band, dwelling on his work in Boston, and Austin was apt to score during these Internals and chuckle satisfactorily over his shrewdness. , f "f "" ; And at times, also, when the evening was well advanced, the old- man was apt to nod sleepily, and Blaine would find it easy to meld a sequence which might otherwise have been averted. It was during the second year that the youth began to .. notice the frequency of- these nodding periods, and te feeling of pity In him grew at sight of old Austin's white head drooping, Hie look of guilt that leaped Into the aged eyeS at sudden realization ,of his Inattentiveness. It occurred to him gradually that the pinochle contest was his father deepest interest T He analyzed the situation, and arrived at an , understanding. There .was little else to occupy the old mans time. i 1 He had long since retired from active business. t His circle of friends was smalL-'-nence this business of playing pinocle with his son had become an Important fdetor In Us life. It served to keep his mind occupied; It served also to keep him" mentally alert ' Thus reasoning, It occurred to Blaine that It an act of kindness to permit his father to win the contest Defeat might have a dangerous reaction. . It would not be a difficult feat to accomplish this end, he reflected. , - It would be simple, during one of Austin's dozes, to dlsrard a trump that might otherwise form a royal mnr-- rlage. , ' , ' The old man would never notice, Would chuctlc, t7t-Us 80P UisWuta- to meld a high score. f And so, with this In mind, Blalnej waited until the deciding game of the1 contest; waited. In fact, until the game was near its end. noting with some satisfaction that the score was nearly equal, the victor doubtful: waited until old Austins head nodded and bis eyes closed for an Instant, and then swiftly slid an ace of trumps on the draw pile, knowing full well the old man would pluck It from the pack on the next play, thereby completing a sequence In his hand and winning the game, ' The plan' worked beautifully, save for tbe fact that Austin, with the ace In his hand, did not meld his sequence. Somewhat puzzled, annoyed because he had figured wrongly in supposing his father held a sequence, Blaine made bis own draw and found himself with a hundred a Cos. Be hesitated, then melded them, feeling assured that on the next play Austin would complete his sequence, scoring for himself 150 points. But this didn't happen. the game ended, wthj)lnlne as the victor; victor, also, ortfte contest.' nis first reaction wn qhngrln because of the failure of his plan. , no felt also a deep sensation of pity toward his father. But Austin was above all elBe a good loser, and by the time Blaines visit was ended other mntters came to occupy his mind and he did not again reflect on the outcome of the contest Blaine returned to Boston directly after supper on Sunday night, and following his departure Austin stretched out In his favorite chair before the open fire and stared at the blaze to moody silence. He remained thus for so Jong that Mrs. Metcalf was at length moved to question him.- r And Austin looked at her qnd smiled, and there was i contented expression In his eyes 1 was thinking of Blaine, he said, smiling. "Ever since Blaine has been a youngster weve played pinochle together, and the boy has come to take the,game pretty seriously. Hes a good loser, never bffers post-mortems, but I know it hurts him when I win. Well, "since hes had that Job In Boston I feel he shouldnt be disturbed by outside affairs weighing on his mind. At first I thought hed forget about our pinochle games, but when be suggested this last contest, I could see his Interest was as keen as ever. And, so, taking everything Into consideration, I figured it wouldnt be so good for his state of mind tf he didnt win," The old man paused and chuckled. "So I made Relieve I was dozing; gave him a chance to gel In a couple Of good ploys Without letting him know I was watching. And It worked, too! We finished" up tonight, and the boy won. He didnt know It, but during that last hand I held a sequence and never melded It, Just sos he could win. Afghan Citiefc Centers - of Mystery to Traveler Herat today reminds one of Bukharans place In which to sit and dream. Its bazaars a source of never-falling Interest; Its twilight pools scenes of mystery. But Herat, with seven tall minarets breaking tbe skyline near a mud-walled City much Uke jthat at the foot of the tall tower from which Bukhara hurled spies and criminals to their death, Is more satisfying to the tourist During a,' photographers recent stay In Herat Impromptu friends made him feel ' at home.

The Afghan boy, greeted at birth by a salvo of fourteen guns is treated by bis fa: ther with unusual tenderness. "Some of tbe dances at Muknr reveal the effeminate side of Afghan character. "Song and dance are Satans daughters, say -the Afghan Puritans. As in other eastern lands where women do not participate In, the dances, men and boys develop an almost feminine grace. . But there are other dances -Of a masculine wildness, with stamping feet multiplying the savage rhythm of the long-barrel drums, while the long locks Of the mountaineers whip back And forth over verlle, sweaty faces Behind the traplike rattle furnished by sticks In the left hands of Ihe'druromers Is the heavy rhythm of the right hands as they beat the other side of tbe drums Number of Sente ' N The number of senses Is generally restricted to five, the so-called special senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.
