Some may ask, why doesn't the government support the world today." The man that said
that is Herbert Hoover, two years
ago. Our government is spending
more today, to prepare for war
which we have promised we will
never engage in, at a time when
our national treasury shows a de
ficit of a billion dollars. In cir
culating a petition yesterday, out
of almost 100 signatures for dis
armament only two men refused
to sign. That surely expresses the
sentiment of our citizenship to
do away with war. Why should
not the United States take the lead
in trusting the pledges of the Pact
of Paris and reducing the weight
of taxation for armaments which
now lie so heavily on the world?

Salmon, Fred and Owea heard

" 'Is it possible yon have not

" 'Yes, such news travels fast

" 'And did you know that John

ruse, th gang that came to hang
him became panic-stricken, and
fled in frantic terror. Taking
advantage of th state of mind of
the pros, John Brown rode out
with five men and captured two
prominent slave-holders, and sent
a letter to Governor Shannon of
fering to exchange them for John,
Jr., and Jason. Each of the slave
holders wrote a letter to Gov

appeal that he comply and he
complied; the exchange was made

John Brown was accused of
th midnight murder of the five
pro-slavery spies; the territorial
government offered a reward of
$1,000 for his capture. His forces
now numbered about 40 in all,
including himself and his seven
sons and a son-in-law, Henry
Thompson, who had come on
from th east with Watson
Brown. They were fugitives from
justice. houseless, homeless,
hunted, yet not unhappy.

polo player. An eligible bachelor.
One of the most eligible. He was
in the north woods at present, she
learned, simply by listening when
one of the reporters asked her:
"We understand that Mr. Collin
Carstairs is np north?" and by
nodding intelligently.
Evelyn hadn't spoken of Collin.
Why? wondered Fanchon.
Had sh r picture of herself?
they wanted to know.
Sh had not. But a camera man
was there. Fanchon raised her
hands protestingly. No pictures!
she begged.
She hadn't thought of that.
Tony might see th picture ....
Tony might recognize her ....
The picture was. however, tak
en. She thought courageously that
after all. some hope was left.
Newspaper pictures were notori
ously unrecognizable; th borrow
ed hat had shadowed her face;
and her face itself was pale and
almost gaunt with the shock of
what she had been through. He
might not Eee it; or, seeing, rec
ognize her.
They asked her about "Miss
Smith." To all their questions she
replied as there was now no one
left of all the party to bear wit
ness against her that she had
never seen the other girl until
they boarded the plane together.
That she understood she had
made her horn la San Francisco
and was leaving it to take up
work library work. F a n e h on
thought In New York. And that
sh had heard "Miss Smith" say
that she had no living relative.
No, she did not know her given
name; had never heard it.
One reporter mentioned care
lessly, that the girl had died . . .
an hour or so before they had
boarded Fanchon' train, n
Fanchon's eyes tilled with ner
vous tears. Dead, Evelyn Howard
constituted no danger for her.
Living, she would have been a
perpetual menace. Dead, Fanchon
could remember that she had
been young, that she had loved
life, that she had looked forward
with eagerness to what lite was to
hold for her. Dead. Fanchon could
iorgei tnat in Fanchon's own
trouble Evelyn Howard had been
cold, unkind and condemnatory.
Dead, Fanchon could forget that
Evelyn had refused to help her
and had branded her without
words a gangster's girl ... a
girl that on "didn't know."
whom one couldn't "afford" to
Dead. Mvelya Howard was free,
and her death mad Fanchon free.
Th reorters left, apologizing
pleasant, hurrying back with
their news, "Sol Survivor's Story
of Plane Crash Which Killed
Seven," they would tick out on
their keys. It would presently b
flashed over th wires of the As
sociated Press.
The train moved on. Fanchon
leaned her head against th dus
ty plush cushions and closed her
eyes. She couldn't go back now.
Sh had Irrevocably 'committed
herself. There was nothing to do
bat to permit herself to be carried
on and on . . . and eventually t
Up off th train Into whatever
destiny-awaited her.
She fonnd herself speculating
upon Mrs. Carstairs' son, Collin.
Upon the reason -why Evelyn had
not mentioned him to her. It
would have been more natural
had Evelyn mentioned him, more
In keeping with Evelyn's charac
ter. Evelyn had been more than a
llttl east conscious when it cam
ti Jennie Carstairs, she had been
more than a llttl nrond. mora
llttl anxious to impress
upon Fanchon th glories and
bruited wonders of Mrs. Car
stairs' social position and money.
Of th woman herself sh had hsd
llttl to say, which was also nat
oraL as sh had never known her.
But sh had not spoken ot her
son at all. This seemed extraor
dinarily Strang to Fanchon,
thinking It over as it would hav
beea th most comprehensible
thing la th world for Evelyn to
hav mentioned this "ellglM"
cousin, this big gam hunter, this
poi player.
Why. then, hadth been silent?.
