An officer's uniform will not be un

He served along the Mexican border in
1916 and later led a company In France,
where he was cited for distinguished
service in the front lines.
In fact, close friends of Col. Wood
cock have said of him in the past that
the leg? 1 profession was his vocation,
but soldiering was his avocation.
In his first year as prohibition di
rector he instituted an Army merit

the call of duty, under which dry
agents might be assured of any de

Tragedy.
By the Assoeisted Press.
CASS LAKE, Minn., July 25.—Five
persons were killed last night w-hen the
airplane In which they were riding fell
a few feet from friends to whom they
were waving as the pilot swung low.
The dead are:
Dr. Charles C. Gault, 38, of Owatonna
Minn.
The Rev. Lawrence J. McHugh, 35, of
St. Mary’s College, Winona.
The Rev. J. J. Stapleton, 34, of St
Mary’s Parish, Waseca.
A. B. Conrad, 24, of Rochester, Minn,
pilot of the plane.
Ralph Ausk, 10, of Cass Lake.
The accident occurred when the pilot
seeing the plane was losing altitude
fast, apparently zoomed too quickly
causing a wing to crumple. The plane
turned over and crashed, upside down
directly in front of the Gault cottage
on Cass Lake.
Mrs. Gault and her two children stood
near the cottage waving to her husband
and father in the plane when the acci
dent occurred. Conrad had been flying
two years and had secured his trans
port pilot’s license a year ago.

CHAPTER XVI.
A PERSISTENT DEVIL.
THE black Mephisto who came
forward when Juanita's name
was called was a tricky dancer
and she found it not easy at
first to follow him. When they
fell into step his voice came gratefully.
. “I thought for a moment, Senorita,
| that we were not made tor each other.
| Made to dance together. I mean. . . .
Do you sp-ak. French. Senorita?”
Juanita said no. though she could
read It. English, Imperfectly, and
Spanish, of course. That was all.
| “Your eyes speak any language.”
“If I had known that.'* she told him.
! "I shouldn't have studied English so
hard.”
' “I would have told you, had I‘been
j there.”
“And I might have believed you
Then how would I explain by my
I glances that I prefer chocolate to cos-
I fee. for Instance, and that I like it at 9
J o’clock?”
“You should not have to give such
orders. They should all be administered
by these who have intuitions.”
“Intuitions are rare, senor. As It is,
I have to drink a good deal of coflee.”
Mesphisto was silent, tightening his
arm about her as the cymbals crashed.
They returned to the seats, finding the
, marquesa taking leave of a pirate.
"I sit next to you at supoer.” Me- ’
phisto breathed, kissing Juanita's hand,
i “You shall have chocolate."
I Mephisto and the pirate gone, the
marquesa spoke to Juanita in Spanish.
: "Is not the devil heavenly? . . . Every
, thing is beaut'ful. and I am proud of
you. Ysabel. But you must not say that
; you have never been to dances like this,
for we have them at the carnivals in
Spain.”
Juanita danced with the pirate, with
a goblin in red. a matador and an In
dian. a clown and a sultan. Then Kirk
came for his second dance.
“It's gorgeous.” Juanita told him.
“Too bad they've got to take these
nice faces off," Kirk said. “That pirate,
for Instance, with the fierce black
whiskers. Is a mild blond, really, with a
dimple in his chin.” l
“That's sad." said Juanita. “Suppose
I'd fallen in love with his whiskers?”
“Then there'd be a pirate missing,
dimple and all. . . . I'm not feeling par
ticularly merciful toward my fellow
Comuses right now. If you knew how
they’ve pushed and elbowed for dances
with you and tried to beat me out of
the ones I’ve got myself! . . . Yes, Bi
loxi. ... I know now- why Biloxi was
created. I'm going to take you to Biloxi
out of their reach. Don’t tell me you'd
rather stay here and have pirates and
devils pulling at you.”
"They haven't pulled.”
‘ Well, they will. I think just one
Harlequin pulling all by himself will be
more peaceful, don't you?”
"Do Harlequins pull?"
"I imagine so. Yes. given provaca
tion. they pull like forceps in a relent
less hand," Kirk answered, holding her
close.
"Tell me why so many are dressed as
pirates and devils.”
"I don't know, senorita. I can only
tell you that in my budding youth I
always came to Com us as a devil. . . .
Does w'hat we really are crop out at a
time like this?"
"More likely it's what we are not,”
she said.
"But would be if we had the chance.”
Kirk added. "No. I’m a Harlequin
these days because it’s the easiest. This
year, with Nelly in Biloxi, I wouldn’t
have come if it hadn't been that—l had !
to dance with you again. When she's j
at Biloxi in the Summer and at times !
like this I get into slippers and turn on
the radio. If the radio's bad, Igo to
the piano myself.”
| "So that's the kind of devil you are’”
"You never heard me play, senorita.
It may not be so harmless as It sounds ".
"Will you play for me sometimes?”
she asked.
He nodded. "And you will play for
me and sing.”
"What makes you think "
"Your voice is a mezzo.” he answered.
"Your instrument is not the piano but
the violin. Perhaps the harp."
She shook her head. "But that's
odd." she added. "I play the harp a
little. The thing I play best—you will <
smile ”
"The guitar!" he cried. “I like the
guitar. And if you play the harp, Nelly
will never let you go.”
The music stopped and the march to
supper began to form, the pageant fol
, lowing its queen into a dining room,
upon which the exits on one side of the
theater swung open.
At Kirk's table, on Juanita's right,
sat the black Mephisto with the mar
quesa. Here, too. were the Cheshire cat
and the whiskered pirate, with their
ladies.
At a blast from a trumpet the Krewe
of Comus unmasked, laugned into their
ladies' eyes. Juanita turned abruptly to
Kirk, who was presenting the cat and
the pirate with the dimple in his chin.
"Mr. Cranshaw . . . Mr. Stephens.
And the devil's real name is Mr. Fouche.
Never forget that, ladies.”
Bettina Byrnes, on Kirk's left, began
to talk to him. and at Adrian's murmur
Juanita met his eyes again. Adrian’s
eyes held something of his own surprise.
He was not accustomed to strange ladies
turning immediately away when he un
masked. The marquesa had not done
it. but had said in beautiful French.
"Your satanic majesty, it is an honor to
see you close." Senorita Flores had
teemed actually disappointed in his face.
She must have been annoyed by some
thing else.
"Senorita,” he was murmuring now,
“I have ordered your chocolate."
