He told Linda of this conversation.

Call to Action
From Washington Brian wrote In s
way that revealed his heart with ill
most cruel clarity, l.lr.dn could find
no doubt there; only the humility and
reverence with which some men ap
proach the women they love. This
attitude touched her profoundly. Ten
derness was new to her.
But what was to come of It alll
When that question persistently arose
to torment her she tried to put It
aside with a'l the easy excuses that
are the habl of the procrnstltutor.
Brian would go away. Circumstances
would separate them; they would both
forget. But In these reflections there
was no solace; Instead, far from for
getting, she found the need for htm
growing day by day.
There were other troubles. Money.
The delayed check arrived from the
broker with a stiff notation of the de
duction that was credited to Senator
Converse. Her cheeks burned when
she saw that, and recalled her humili
ation. For a moment she felt a
stinging desire to look the truth In
the face to be honest with herself.
She was not deceived with this elab
orate pretense, but unless she ac
cepted it nothing remained but chaos.
The check was comparatively small,
but It came at a moment which ex
aggerated Its Importance. As If
warned by telepathy, poor Lindas
creditors seemed to have chosen that
morning for a united foray. She was
facing a pile of bills and letters,
some of them even threatening In a
deadly po'"e ort of way. when the
dove of peace dropped the blue slip
bearing the signature of Stevens Into
The money vanished.
'low did 't happen? Linda. Who
thought she had learned the lesson
of prudence, discovered her purse al
most empty once more. Some new
pride within her rebelled against sub
terfuge with these people who had
trusted her, and she paid It freely out
to dressmakers and milliners while It
lasted. They were plucHted. and
urged by her to buy again, but she
would not, although spring peeped
temptingly through the new little
leaves of the gray trees In the park.
The shops were full of lovely things,
hut she bought nothing. The hai she
had chosen on that walk with Brian
hnd been the last purchase. A feel
Ing that In some manner an Invisible
n wan closing around h-r persisted,
and there was nothing In the Imme
diate outlook to raise her spirits.
Time crept by. and brought March.
She was still In the city alone, so fur
as her circle of friends was concerned,
for the frightful weather had driven
every one away. But she did not
miss them. She was marking time
until Brian would be gone.
Then, she believed, she would be
safe. It would he possible then to

eye because of the recent gov
ernmental changes In Argentina,
Is like a person of retiring na
ture, whom you must know long and
well to appreciate. It reveals Itself
little by little to you and twines Itself
about your heart, till ere long, and so
gradually that you have not realized
it. Its subtle charm has made a last
Your first view shows great white
grain elevators In rows along the
shore, with one skyscraper of fourteen
stories looming up behind them. The
great size of the city Is not evident,
for the land Is lint and the warehouses
and office buildings close to the busy
docks hide all that lies behind.
Nearly every traveler Is Impressed
first of all by the cleanliness of the
capital of the Argentine republic. The
Industries of the city are confined
largely to port activities and trading.
Partly for this reason and partly be
cause Argentina has no coal, and hence
cannot manufacture cheaply, hideous
chimneys and smoke-grimed factories
are not numerous. There are no
slums. Naturally there are districts
of poverty, but the tenement, as we
know It, does not exist. In even the
poorest quarters, such as the "Boca."
the streets are clean and well paved,
and the houses, only one or two stories
high, all have patios behind them.
The houses are tinted cream or yellow
ish tan and face directly on the
streets, with blank or nearly blank
One drawback to the older part of
the city Is the narrowness of the
streets, and especially the sidewalk
which are often three feet or less from
wall to curb. There Is no excuse for
this, for when the city was laid out
the whole vast expanse of the pampas
lay open behind It The newer streets
are much wider, often with a ribbon
of shrubbery and grass down the
How the City Is Laid Out
Buenos Aires Is roughly circular In
shape and of Immense size, covering
some seventy-five square miles. Two
of Its sides are formed by the Rio
de la Plata (so wide that It seems like
a muddy sea) and a small stream, the
Blachnelo. Along both of these, but
principally the former, are the numer
ous docks, basins, and warehouses.
Avenlda RIvadavla. starting at the
waterfront and running almost due
west divides the city Into two roughly
Over the greater part of the city the
streets Intersect at right angles, and
It would be a very easy place In which
to find one's way around were It not
for the fact that the streets are all
named Instead of numbered, most of
the names being historical or geo
graphical. Every country In the world
has a street nomed for It, and every
Argentine president, general or other
Important personage. Another habit
Is to name streets for dates, of which
there are several roughly correspond
ing to our Fourth of July. Thus there
are Avenlda de Mayo, Calle 2.1 de
Mayo. Paseo de Julio, and Parque de
las Tres de Febrero.
Much of the city Is uninteresting,
consisting of block after block of low
plaster-covered brick buildings and In
numerable small almacenes (gro
ceries), cervecerlas (beer saloons),
cafes (coffee houses; here a cafe Is
not a restaurant, as In the United
States), clgarrerlas, and loterlas
(shops where lottery tickets are sold).
Two Interesting Streets.
The chief artery of the city Is Ave
nlda de Mayo, stretching from the
President's home to the capltol. The
Casa Rosada (Pink House), cor
responding to our White House, Is
great pink pile, with Imposing en
trances and hondsome carvings and
bas-reliefs. It faces the Plaza de
Mayo, where on May 25, 1S10, Ar
gentine Independence was first pro
claimed. This avenue, tinder which the sub
way runs, Is lined with hotels and
fine shops and has many cafes with
little tables out on the sidewalk under
awnings, a la Paris.
Another Interesting thoroughfare Is
Calle Florida, the street of restau
rants and Jewelry stores. It Is so nar
row that there Is barely room for two
cars to pass, and In the late afternoon
all traffic Is stopped, so that the peo
ple may promenade In the street.
Buenos Aires was founded In 1580,
after colonization efforts In 1,34 and
1542 bad fulled. From the first It had

SUtusry From Other Nations.
Thus handicapped. It Is no wonder
that the port grew slowly. It was not
till the last half century before the
Spanish yoke was thrown oft that
Buenos Aires began to come Into Its
own. Once Independence was achieved,
it grew rapidly, and when In 15)10 tin
hundredth anniversary was celebrated,
It had a population well over a million.
Much of the city's beauty dates
from this centenary la 1910. at which
time many countries presented Argen
tina with commemorative statuary
symbolic of the occasion. As Is fitting,
the gift of the Spanish people is the
most conspicuous. In the center of
the broad Avenlda Alrear, the city's
loveliest . promenade, rises a great
white marble pedestal, crowned with
an angel of victory. Below are many
other figures and friezes, while tlis
four corners of the pedestal bear
bronze groups symbolizing the Andes,
the Pampas, the Clmco, and the Mean
potamlan region (between the Parana
and Uruguay rivers).
France's contribution Is among the
finest and also stands beside the Ave
nlda Alvear. It Is of rose-colored
granite and white marble, with ex
quisitely caned figures.
America's gift Is not In keeping with
her Importance, ami, standing In a
rather obscure corner of one of the
parks. Is missed by many tourists. It

The Kngllsh commemorated the oc
casion by the gift of a great red brick
clock tower, In the center of the beau
tiful Plaza Brltannlca, opposite the
lletiro railway station. Germany's gift
was a broad white marble fountain;
while Italy, In the Plaza Italia, has
a large equestrian statue of Oarlbaldl.
Throughout Argentina, In every city
and In many towns, may be seen
equestrian stutnes of San Martin. Ar
gentina's greatest national hero.
Among the best Is the one In the cen
ter of the Plaza Sao Martin, with
bronze battle groups and bas-reliefs.
In an excellent setting of palms anj
formal flower beds.
Where the British Live.
All about the the city are suburbs,
with which there Is good communica
tion by the frequent suburban trains.
Of these residential districts Belgrano
lies closest and Is the best known. It
Is especially popular among the many
Brltlsn residents, and In Borne por
tions, were It not for the Spanish
street signs, one might Imagine hlin
self set down In England. On one cor
ner Is a boys' boarding school, and In
the open lot behind It English luds In
"shorts" their Eton Jackets and
broad white collars laid aside are
engrossed In cricket or football. On
another comer Is an Ivy-clad episco
palian or Presbyterian church, a bevy
of pretty English girls chatting on the
steps. Even the native policeman
greets you, "flood morning, sir," In
stead of "Buenos dlas, senor."
The city with Its suburbs has nearly
two million Inhabitants, almost one
fourth the population of the country.
It Is the third largest city In the
New world nnd the second Latin city
In the whole world. It Is sometimes
called "The Paris of the New World"
and sometimes "The New York ot
South America." In beauty of build
ings and parks, the first nnme un
doubtedly Is descriptive, and In finan
cial and commercial Importance tha
second Is equally so.
Another resemblance to New York
Is In Its cosmopolitanism. In nearly
any popular restaurant one may hear
diners chatting In Spanish, French,
Italian, Herman, and English; per
haps also In Russian, Swedish, or
Good Place for Immigrants.
Like New York, It Is a city of op
portunity for the Immigrant. Many
of the largest businesses are owned
by foreigners who landed with their
belongings on their backs.
While Buenos Aires Is thought of
as a Spanish city, true Spaniards are
not In a mujorlty.
The capital of Argentina. Is pre
eminently a city of wealth nnd pleas
ure. Unlike wealthy Americans, who
have their places of business In the
city but live In the country, many of
the richest lund owners, who number
their acres by the tens of thousands,
have their palatial homes In the heart
of Buenos Aires and only at Infre
quent Intervals vlult their Impious
ranches, which are managed by cvei-seers.
