way to balance or stabilise foreigir

Senator Owen is convinced that
Europe Is solvent both financially
and in productive power, and there
fore there should be no reason why
the ?AmericanHn vest Ive public should
not willingly put some part of their

do It now. because at the present
rate of exchange securities may be
bought cheaper an& are sure bv and

give a profit to the Investor.
The public has little knowledge of
the embarrassment to American
business life which is now occa
sioned by the abnormal rate of for

ness men are almost In despair,
fearing that it may take years to
stabilise foreign exchange rates, and
iT it does then American Industries
will be Impaired and we face the
danger of losing some part of our
foreign markets.

But Is Worth Attention

I found a champion who recognizes the
true worth and sterling character of
this long overlooked bird.
Dr. Harry C. Oberholser, of the
United States National Museum at
Washington, made a plea before the
convention of the American Ornithol
ogists Union today for more consider
ation for the mud hen or coot.
It's a foolish bird, he admitted, and
has some crazy habits, but it should
be recognized in some way, at least
it could be shot, he argued* It's pei

at nothing in particular, the, effect
of their fusillade was all that could
be wished. Cobo'a men, led by the
terrified Cueto, turned and fled for
cover, believing themselves m dhnger
of annihilation. Nor was the colonel
himself In any condition to rally them,
for Asenslo's blade had cloven one
I full dark cheek to the bone, and the
eho?k and pain had unnerved him; he
was frightened at sight of the blood
that streamed down over the breast
of his white tunic, and so. when ho
saw his men turn tail, he followed suit.

This was the flrgt hand-to-hand en
counter Esteban's men had had. and
their swift victory rendered them
ferocious. Flinging their guns aside,
they went crashing into the brush on
the trail of their enemies.
Rosa found herself in her brother's
arms, sobbing out the story of the
outrage and quivering at every sound
of the chase. He was caressing her,
and telling her to have no further
fears; both of them were fairly hys
terical. Even before Esteban had

skull, wes not dead. In the course
of time under Rosa's and Esteban's

and when the other men returned
they found her lying tick and da*ed.

Doubtless he would put a price upon

h# would never allow them another
