He Just knew It, sinat was all. He couldn't under- ind a word said by the man in iose yard he found himself when climbed the bank after his long vim across the Big River. But tie didn't have to understand words to know that he had found a friend. So he allowed the man to Urgently drive him over to an open I'iBhed where there was a pile of soft Hunter Looked Surprised and His Surprise Gave Way to Anger. y, and there he lay down, so tired ffe'that It seemed to him he couldn't another step. was only a few minutes later the hunter who had followed across the river reached bank and scrambled out of the Llghtfoot's friend was wait- just at the top of the bank, course the hunter saw him at Hff "Hello, friend I" cried the hunter. fH^'Dld you see a deer pass this way few mlntues ago? He swam I'jacross the river, and If I know any- ||thlng about it he's too tired to itravel far now. I've been hunting Ithat fellow several days, and if I jhave any luck at all I ought to get f him this time." "I'm afraid you won't have any jluck at all," said Lightfbot's friend. ^•"You see, I don't allow any hunt- filing on my land." |Sj|; The hunter looked surprised, and |||i,then his surprise gave way to an- Jigger. "You mean," said he, that you y^Intend to get that deer yourself." '?;;": ;A Llghtfoot's friend shook his head. •'!;"'$< "No," said he, "I don't mean any' ; ; i;^thing of the kind.

Are those your hounds barking over there?" "No," replied the hunter promptly. "I know the law Just as well as you do, and It la against the law to hunt deer with dogs. I don't even know who owns those two hounds over there." "That may be true," replied Lightfoot's friend. "I don't doubt It is true. But you are willing to take advantage of the fact that some one else's dogs have broken the law. You knew that those dogs had driven that deer Into the Big Kiver, and you promptly took advantage of the fact to try to reach that deer before he could get across. You are not hunting for the pleasure of hunting but Just to kill. You don't know the meaning of Justice or fairness. Now get off my land I Get back into your boat and off my land as quickly as you can! That deer is not very far from here and so tired that he cannot move. Just as long as he will stay here, he will be safe, and I hope he will stay until this miserable hunting season Is ended. Now go 1" Muttering angrily, the hunter got back into his boat and pushed off. But he didn't row back across the Big River. © T. W. Burges*—WNU Service. •the.

With fruit soups the nourishment depends upon the Ingredients used, as with other soups. Prunes, raisins, figs, bananas, persimmons and pawpaws have more food value in themselves, though lacking In other things. With the addition of stock, milk and egg, the food value is increased. Dried or canned fruits are used as well as the fresh fruits. Strawberry and Orange Soup. Sprinkle a pint of strawberries with sugar and let stand on Ice for one hour. Make a sirup of one and one-half quarts of water and a pound of sugar, cook'for ten minutes, add a quart of fresh berrlea with the Juice of one lemon. Mash and strain, adding a cupful of orange Juice with the berries, which have been iced. Serve cold. Fancy Caramels. Pot two cupfuls of sugar, one cupful of brown sugar, one cupful of corn sirup, one cupful of ream, two cupfuls of milk, one-half i-upful of butter in a saucepan and ,-ook and stir until the candy forms a soft ball when tested In cold water—240 degrees F. Add one package of dates sliced, and two teaspoonfuls of vanilla and turn at once into lightly greased pans.

MAGIC NUMBERS T HIS Is a mystic prediction. The magician writes something on a slip of paper which he seals in an envelope. A person is asked to write a number of three figures—all figures different. For Instance, 193. The magician does not see the number. He merely tells the person to reverse it and subtract the smaller from the larger. Example: 193, reversed, is 391. The subtraction leaves 198. That, too, is kept from the wizard. He says to reverse the result and add. And 198, reversed, is 891. The two, added, produce 1,089. The envelope is opened. On the paper is the number 1,089. Whatever the original number used, the final total win be 1,089. That is the secret of the trick. One point: always mention that a zero must be placed In front if the subtraction brings a two-figure number, Thus, 99 (which sometimes arrives) is treated as 099. Reversed, It la 990. MONDAY MORNING By DOUGLAS MALLOCH 1V/IUNDAY. morning back to school, *•** When a Sunday's over. Though I'd rather, as a rule, Stay and play with Rover. But we need It when we're men (That's my mother's warning), So It's back to school again Ev'ry Monday morning. Monday morning I must go Back to school to study, But I hardly mind it, though— So do Bill and Buddy. There's a great big yard to run, Where you play and shout it; School is quite a lot of fun, When you think about It. Monday, once upon a time, I was kept from going. Well, you think a thing's a crime. Without ever knowing How you'll miss It, as a rule, Taken without warning, How you'll miss it—even school On a Monday morning. © Douglas Mallocb.—WNU service.

C.: "NO MORE, THANK YOUJ" Ann«b«llf. JlfHILE striving manfully to dig VV his way out of the mall that robably should have been attended o days ago your reporter haa un- overed two letters unadorned by oily wreaths and pictures of Santa laus. Just to prove that anything an happen If you wait long enough or it, one of the letters is from he secretary of the Baseball Writ- rs' Association of America. In It e reveals that organized baseball as at last been convinced that ome slight gesture should be' made owards honoring those players vho have lived so long in memory. o he presents a list of 32 players vho have starred from 1900 to the resent date, and requests that our reporter Join with other base- all writers in voting upon the ten est of that group. Since the lucky winners of this alloting are to have tablets erected In their honor In the proposed baseball hall of fame, your reporter was at flrst disposed to reply with a letter of protest. In it he was going to suggest that the people who pay are the real judges of the men who have merited such distinction, and so hould be permitted to do the vot- ng. On second thought, though, hns desisted from another vain attempt to persuade the club own- rs to behave like reasonable hu- imn beings. Instead he Is nppend- ng here a list of players such as the secretary of the B. B. W. A. of A., (incidentally, he also Is the pub- icity agent for the American eagne) evidently 'desires. The list is divided Into two sec- lons of ten each. One section is composed of players who were frequently observed by your reporter during the specified years. No doubt le saw some of them so frequently hat personal liking enters into the matter. The other section is of players who either were through or were far past their prime by the ime he was able to take a mature nterest In the game.

They are warning the club owners not to hire Billy Evans as business manager. This Is not because they have anything personal against the former umpire, who Is such a pal of the National league's president. They merely think that Mr. Evans failed so completely In his home town of Cleveland when he had oodles of money to spend on the Indians that he could not possibly be a success In strange and straltener surroundings. . . . Thallus, champion char- lot driver In the reign of Emperor Titus of Rome, was one of the biggest of all time dough boys of sports. He competed before hundreds of thousands of people, won more than 1,300 races and piled up more than three million sesterces in purses. Sesterces was the word the Romnas had for dollars. Sports writers, long accustomed to such inane tactics, are chuckling at the newest evidence of masterful thinking displayed by the Middle At- lantlc States conference.

A liquid can always he taken in gradually reduced doses. Reduced aosage is the real secret of relief from constipation. Ask a doctor about this. Ask yonr druggist how very popular Dr. Cald- welrs Syrup Pepsin has become. It gives the right kind of help, and right amount of help. Taking a little less each time, gives the bowels a chance to act of their own accord, until they are moving regularly and thoroughly without any help at all. « Dr. CalaweU's Syrup Pepsin contains senna and cascara—both natural laxatives that form no habit. The action is gentle, but sure. It will relieve any sluggishness or bilious condition due to constipation without upset. npHINGS the box score forgot to •!• mention: Unkind persons say that Johnny Allen was traded by the Yankees >ecau«e he couldn't fj«t along with Lou Gehrlg.

College football coaches have a lot of faith In the integrity of Danny Sullivan, director of athletics jit Deiin academy. They sny that, when a couch goes to the trouble of sending a promising young football player to Dean, Danny makes sure that when he Is ready for college the boy enters his sponsor's fountain of higher learning. This, the coaches claim, is unusual since many prep school officials will turn their stars over only to the highest bidder. French papers, once enthusiast!: about him, have stopped printing pieces about Danno O'Mahoney's mat successes. He wrestles too often and the cable tolls are too high.
