as if in hoars* mockery, and flashed
away down the river.

He tried to laugh at her.
Why. what nonsense! What can
happen? As If It could make any

were so foolish. Anne!"
Her lips trembled.
"Don't laugh at me?please!" she
said faintly. She sprang ashore as

He had never sent her the remainder
of the money he had promised,

Th? contents of the letter were
something very different.

Now don't stop here, with the
idea that Mr. Hughes was a
gambler. On the Contrary, It
was his effective action as governor
of New York, in stopping
race-track gambling, that first
brought him into the limelight
Mr. Hughes, the son of a poor
country preacher, began life in
Glen Falls. New York, in 1862.
/ His father and mother were well
educated, and young Charles
was taught at home. As a result
of this good foundation, when
he entered Brown University he
carried off all the honors tn
Having decided to be m. law
ver. he attended Columbia law
school, beginning to practice law
immediately after graduation.
His good judgment and fairness
and his hatred of trlcKery
.brought him into notice. So, In
1907 he became governor of New
York, and In 1909 was elected
- governor for the second time.
He was appointed Associate
Chief Justice of the Supreme
Courtf in 1910, and held this
position until 1916. when he resigned
to become ' Republican
candidate for President. Although
defeated, he lost by only
twenty-three electoral votes.
When Harding became President,
he saw that Mr. Hughes was

She did not sign her name, and
there was ru> address on the paper.
So someone had spotted him. Who
was It? Fernle? He seemed to be
the most likely.
Mr. Harding came into the room
behind him. ,
"Hello John! Where have you been
all day? I don't think I've seen you
"You were not In to lunch," the
Fortune Hunter reminded him. "And
this afternoon we went up to Long
End to fetch the punt. We had to
leave It thers this morning as It
was so wet."
For the first time he found himself
looking at Mr. Harding with
suspicion. Did he know, too! The
thought made his nerves tingle,
though there was not the least fear
in his heart.
They went in to dinner together.

He knew tha^t she had nhed many
tears because of him, and yet?what
ielse could he have done? The whole
situation had been unnatural and
impossible, much as he loved her;

'have given his soul to have known
[that he had at least made her happy.

What had she meant by that?
"You're very quiet. John." Mr.
Harding said, "In fact, none of us
seem particularly cheerful tonight."

Important thing in drop-kicking
is to have the ball fall straight,
point-down, to the grouhd. This
is difficult if ^ou hold the ball
between yourTi*i*ds. one on one
side of the ball and the other
on the opposite side.
Most drop-kickers hold the
ball vertical, with the fingers of
the left hand on the bottom
point and those of the right on
the top. By quickly drawing
away the left hand the ball falls
straight to the ground.
Be?>re receiving the ball the
kicker should know just where
he is going to kick it. This
makes it unnecessary to aim the
kicjc after he has the ball in
his hands. Once he has received
the ball he should not take his
eye oft it till it leaves his foot.
To be able to "nlac*" * kirk a
man must first know how to kick
accurately. Acquire accuracy
first, and then distance. Start
by standing about fifteen yards
front the goal posts and placing
the ball between them. Then go
back a little for each kick. Soon
you will not only be an accurate
drop-kicker but a good distance

Will the American woman accept

worthy of careful consideration.!
Whatever one's personal opinion j
about the matter may be. and that!
naturally varies as to age. there is j
an economic side to the question.
Matrimony so far has played an
important part in our modern civilization,
and it is within bounds to
sUvte that the short skrt and marriage
are associated with each other.
It will be tragic for a woman who
has been accustomed to be looked
at by men to be entirely ignored
when she wears a long skirt. It
wil! mean the sunreme test or
feminine charm. The intellect may
play an important part, and. there

Observe " Don'ts"
And Boost Fire
1. DON'T allovr rhlMran
with matches. They should be
handled with great care. They
should be kept In a metal con- t
tainer beyond the reach of children
and after you have used a
match do not throw it away; place
this also in a metal container so
that the unburned portion or glow
will not cause Are. ?
2. DON'T use candles on
Christmas trees. They cause flres
and much loss converting
many homes into HHbs of mourning.
DON'T use candle* or Inflammable
decorations on or near
Christmas trees. Tiny electric
lights are best.
3. DON'T have lace curtains
near gas bracket?, or gas brackets
near curtains. This also
pauses manv flres by the curtains
or shade coming in contact with
tjhe opea flame. Gas brackets
Should be placed at a safe distance
from the window and the
curtain protected in Riirh ? manner
that the combustible material
could not come in contact with
the open flame.
4. DON'T put hot ashe* in
wooden boxes; they cause many
fires in homes. Hot ashes should
be placed in a metal container and
removed to the street atfleast once
a dav. The reason we have so
many cellar fires is because people
do not keep their cellars nice and
dean. They allow piles of rubbish
to accumulate. All rubbish, old
newspapers,' broken boxes, excelsior
and old rubbish should be
removed from the cellar.
5. DON'T allow ol<^ grease rags
to lie around the house in corners
or dark closets, because they start
fire* by themselves, without even
having any match to set them off.
6. DON'T fill a lamp or oil stove
while It Is lighted, for this Is dangerous
and It Is liable to explode
and cause fire and injury.
7. DON'T, if your clothing
catches fire, run and fan the
flames, but stop, drench them with
water, or smother them with a
w#olen rug or curtain.
,8. DON'T use kerosene oil to
light a fire in the kitchen stove
or elsewhere, for many have been
burned to death by doing so.
9. DON'T fail tn neonle
who smoke that it is dangerous to
throw away lighted cigars or cigarettes
They constitute one of the
most dangerous causes.
