They were at Manhehn , enjoying the training of the military or ganization, and this one particular squad was marching round the square made by 'the back-stop on the cricket' crease. A young member of the squad settled hi gun nnd his thoughts, remarked sternly, "Forward, march," and they marched. It wasn't very far to a low stone wall at the .edge of the green, and It was up to him to get those eight men turned In time for them to walk parallel with said wall In stead of Into It and over the top. And tho audience on tho benches above tho yall was a bit nervous. But he was ' ,;there' . As the proper foot camo down, Just about four paces away from the dead-line, Jit sang out, "To tho right", and then, While everybody waited breathless for the word of command, he hesitated, and his squad carried on toward Inevitable barked shins. Again he stepped with tho proper foot and, without losing step or presence of mind, changed his order to, "By the right flank, march!", and missed the wall by one Inch, while everybody started to breathe again. He'll be a soldier some day, and I hope he keeps his head that way in every emer gency that meets up with him. NANCY WYNNE. Social Activities Mr. and Mrs. S.

CHAPTER XIV (Continued) HE rest agreeing, they set out along the T path flanked by the grove of stalacltles, traveling at a quicker pace, but with greater caution than before. Miranda ami Herran marched ahead with revolvers drawn. Andrew In the rear still holding his pocket knife ready for action. They had been delaved on Mrs Qiiavle's account, for that lady. In spite of her anxiety to get away, had refused to bulge without her Jewelry. But It was not easy to satisfy her demand. For, hen the Jewel! j was taken from Its hiding place beneath a rock, It still showed the same strong tendency to fly to the Black Magnet This distressed Mrs Quayle, who refused to touch the treasures that she was at the name time loath to part with. But a compromise was Anally effected by tying all the jewelry se curely around Andrew's wa'st. This arrange ment appeased the. owner but It gave an un comfortable backward pull to every step the schoolmaster took, who thus resembled In walking a ship sailing against the wind. This Inconvenience, however, steadily de creased as they came out of the disturbing region of the Black Magnet, until finally these ancient heirlooms of Mrs. Quayle s re gained their normal composure. But there were other things beldes the Black Magnet to Interrupt their progress, Xo sooner had they gotten well under way nnd were congratulating themselves on their escape from .mishap so far than they were startled by a wild and piercing strain of music, seeming to come from the grove of stalactites before which they were hurrying, Amazed bv so singular an Interruption, they stopped short and looked fearfully about them. A sound of scornful laughter blended with the music. "Raoul!" muttered I.elghton. But there was nothing to be seen of the strange American whose mocking laughter they were sure, nevertheless, they had beard. Then the muslo grew louder and louder, as If the musicians were steadily approaching In their direction. The music Itself was subtly d'fferent In tone and pitch from anything played In the outside world. The high notes evidently came from wind Instruments, but of unique quality and caliber. Mingling with these notes and sustaining the bass were the heavy beatings of drums of the kind still used, although deeper and mellower, by the native Indians In their festivals. The melody produced If It could be called a melody was of an extraordinary charac ter. Its effect. Its charm ror It had unmis takable charm was quite Impossible to de fine. In some respects It resembled the mo notonous chantlngs peculiar to most primitive races occasionally as was customary with the latter, rising and falling, whole octaves at a time. In a walling key. Tn the main. It carried a sort Pt theme, emotional and In spiring, that was far too complex to bo at tributed to the uncultivated musical taste common to savagery. There was an exultant swing to the measure, a lilting cadence that betrayed a fine esthetic sense, a rich Imagina tion coupled with the simplicity and freedom that has not felt the pressure, except very remotely, of our western civilization. Such music was good to listen to, and under ordi nary circumstances the explorers would have been content to listen and nothing more. Hut curiosity and spme remnant of fear the lulling Influence ot the music had not dissi pated kept then on the alert. Their fate de pended, they felt, on these musicians. They must find out who they were before It was too late to retreat. And thn presently through the cluster ing green and white stems of the stalactites, they caught sight of them. They were more than twenty In number, moving, as nearly as the unevenness of the ground would permit, In time to the choral march they were playing. At sight of them Mrs. Quayle didn't know whether to be pleased or tetTlfled. For the music was such an enchanting, soothing sort ot thing, and the players so mild, benignant of aspect, anything Ilk fear seemed out of place. But, on the other hand, the atrtnf instrument ANNOUNCED they carried, their outlandish dress, the whole C ,', of theni' '" a wa' "'"" distinctly un earth y, supernatural and Mrs. Quayle drew tlio line at the supernatural So she ended oy being simply amazed beyond measure and her companions shared her feelings In lessening degree.

Hence, Miranda and Herran looked stealthily at their revolvers and restored them as quickly as possible to their hlp-pockets, while such a burst of con fidence seized Mrs. Quayle that she prepared and was actually seen to exhibit one of her most ingratiating smiles for the benefit of the approaching Indians, at the same time ex pressing In a loud voice to Una her approval of their music. This pleasant feeling, however, that they were about to regain their liberty did not last long. The Indians, although showing no un friendliness, gave unmistakable evidence that they meant to control the movements of the explorers. Still playing on their tiumpets and beating solemnly on their drums, they marched around them, bpwlng courteously enough, but Intimating at the tame time that they were acting upon a definite plan that could not be Interfered with. Somewhat dashed by this singular behavior, which was the more difficult to meet Just because t lacked outward menace, the explorers con ferred hastily together, hoping to hit on a safe line of action. Tho men of the party, suspicious of the friendly attitude assumed by the Indians, favored Immediate resistance Their first flush of confidence In them was gone. Herran and Miranda, especially, were doubtful of the Intentions of these strange people. From whatever motive, It seemed to them that the Utter had deliberately planned their capture, evidently carrying out In this the orders of some one In authority over them. That these orders might come from Baoul Arthur was their principal cause for , "'es demand for th F.VEMNO TCBMO l,V-namt mar cease. Ten .to ml an Install meat ! Hits sear Interesting lory.

But how resist a party so superior to their own In number, one that had already gained an obvious advantage of position over them. Lelghton was doubtful what to do; Andrew was helpless: Mrs, Qunyle was tem porarily lost In admiration of the picturesque circle of dancing figures, all regarding her with gratifying amiability. Fna alone In sisted that the friendliness of the Indians was genuine, nnd that their own safety depended on obeying them. As a compromise It was decided to talk to these people to find out what they were after. For this diplomatic duty Miranda and Herran were chosen.

CHAPTER VI The Orphan Finds a Home pKCJOY and Billy Belgium exchanged won 't derlng glance What could Helolse mean by saying there were Hermans In America. Then a light hit Billy "I know what she menus." lip exrlalmed. "They must have been In the train wrecked last week at the Dutch settlement. They thought the kindly Hollanders coming to aid them were Germans. Helolse was Immensely relieved when Billy nssured her the (Hermans hadn't Invaded America and couldn't If they tried. Little Jean, when be heaid this, bravely waved a cookie and shouted, "Vive, PAmei lipif. Vive, la France '" "We walked until T could drag Jean no farther." continued Helolse. "At dawn we found ourselves here. We crept through a window We climbed the ladder to the at tic, nnd I pulled the ladder after tit so the Hermans couldn't tind us, Then we slept and slept. "Long, long nflerward we awoke to find the rooms below tilled with children We did not daie stir for hours and hours. "When the children went home we crept down They bad left scraps of food from the lunches. Theie were nuts under a tree. So we feasted on the scraps and the nuts" "Poor, poor kiddles," sobbed Peggy, when Billy Belgium tinnslated the story "It was rich fare after our starving In France." said Helolse simply "Later wo ciept back to the nttlc It was cold nnd dark, and we didn't know when the Hermans would como after us. nut we prayed and we prayed, and then wo slept "The next day was the same, and so was the third. But yesterday the ihlldren left no scraps." "I bet you that was after the food con servation talks In the schools," suggested Peggy. "And we couldn't find any more nuts," added Helolse. "That was after the boys and the Jays had their clean-up." declared Blue Jay "So we went tn bed hungry, as we had done In France before." said Helolse. "I.lttle Jean was so brave He tried tn cheer me by telling me he had eaten i nough for u week "We woke up htingiy, and grew hungrier evety minute. We heard you here and we tried to keep quiet, for we thought you Oennans. But Jean cnuliln't help sobhlng. When we saw tbnt awful figure In the tree all covered with camouflage we thought we were In the hands nf the Huns." Billy Belgluni grinned nt this description of hU "fun" disguise "Then everything went dark When I awoke and heard you talking mv own beloved French, my heart nearly hurst with Joy" "Vive, I'Amerlque," cried Jean, now all smiles, "Oh. how glad I was to find myself safe In America safe, even though homeless and friendless. I am Mire we Bhall find here some kind foster parents " Helolse's eyes glowed at the thought So did Peggy's, "t know Just the persons who will adopt you," she cried "Mr. and Mrs Pelton. our wealthy neighbors, were saying Just yester day that they would like to care for a little French girl and hoy through the war. nnd even afterward 1 know you are the veiy ones they .want " Peggy had seen a telephone In tho school room Killed with her grand Idea she flew to It. She rang up Mr. Pelton and poured out her stoiy to him. In a minute she was back "They want you They say to come right away" she cried, hugging Helolse nnd Jean In her joy. "Well, this golng-to-school Joke has been more fun than I thought It would be," hooted Judge Owl "I've learned not to fool with ghost yarns," laughed Billy. "And we'ip learned a lot, too," shrilled Oeneral Swallow. "One thing Is not to run away from persons In distress." "Another Is to be brave when you're scared." added Peggy, remembering how Billy had climbed Into the window, not knowing whether he was going to encounter spooks or kidnappers. "Wouldn't It have been awful If we had left Helolse and Jean there to die '" "And our big lesson Is that after pain and sorrow our players will bring Joy and hap piness and peace" murmured Helolse And then they all started down the road to take her and Jenn to their new home (fii her next adventure.i, Peoui' oft irlffc the Itlrdi t-o the sunnv Haitthland. where they have a part in a ptetti romance.) WOMEN SUPPLANT, MEN IN HANDLING LUMBER Women have done all ports of war work, but the latest occupation In which they have supplanted the men Is in handling lumber. Seventy-five Polish womi are loading cars for the Pearson & Ludascher Lumber Com pany at Its pier at the foot of Westmoreland street. The shipyards have taken the lum ber yards' emploves. Many of the women employed In the yard were at times wont to collect bits of fire wood while workmen chased them away. Now they have control of the yards, and It Is safe to say there will be but a few men allowed to practice the carrying away of kindling to keep the home fires burning. More than 100 applications wre received by the lumber company from women who desired work. The wages paid them are the same as paid the men, and the hours are of a much shorter duration. nmiiE schools to march Dally Vacation Pupils in Patriotic Rally Saturday More than 2000 children will participate In a parade and demonstration by the Phila delphia Dally Vacation Bible Schools next Saturday afternoon.
