"Are you cold, Mr. Speed?" "Climb on your horses and get a start," panted the burly trainer; "he's goin' to race you ten miles." j "I'm going to do nothing of the Eort -I'm going to " : But Glass Jerked him violently, cry ing: "And no talkin . to gals, neither. . You're trainin'. Now, get a move!" ! Speed halted stubbornly. "Hit her up, Wally! G'wan, now- faster! No loafing, Bo, or 121 wallop you!" Nor did he cease uKtil they both paused from exhaustion. Even then he would not allow; his charge to do more than regain his breath be fore urging him" onward. 1 , "See here," Wally stormed at last, "what's, the use? I can't. " I"., "What's the use?' That's the use!" Glass pointed to the north, here a lone horseman, was watching them from a knolL ' "D'you ' know who that is?" : ..' " : - The rider was small and stactp- shouldered. - - "Willie!" t ; "That's who." ' ". "He's following us!" - With knees- trembling beneath hhn Speed jogged feebly on down the road, Glass puffing at his heels. When, after covering five miles, they finally returned, to the Flying Heart, -it was with difficulty that they could ldrag one "foot after another, Wally Speed was drenched with per spiration, and' Glass resembled noth ing so much as a steaming pudding; - rivulets -of sweat ran down his neck, -his face was purple, his lips swollen. "Y-you'll have to run alone this afternoon;" panted the tormentor. "This afternoon? Haven't 1 ran enough for one day?" the victim pleaded.

Take it from me, Wally, we ain't goin' to have no luck In this thing." . "My dear fellow, .the simplest way out of the difficulty is for me to In Jure myself " "Here!" Glass hopped to his feet and dove through the blankets. "None of that! Have a little regard for me If you go lame it's my curtain." . All that day the trainer stayed close to his charge, never allowing him out of his sight, and when, late in the aft ernoon, Speed rebelled at the espion age, Glass merely shrugged his fat- shoulders. "But I want to be alone with her, Can't you see?" "I can, but I won't. Go as far as you like. I'll close my eyes." "Or. I'll "close them for you!" The lad scowled; his companion laughed mirthlessly. "Don't start nothin' like that I'd ruin you Gals is bad for a man in trainin' anyhow." . "1 suppose I'm not to see her " "You can see her, . but I want to hear what you say to her.

"If these cowboys . make me ran that race, they'll be sorry mark my words, they'll be sorry." : Speed lighted a cigarette and in haled , deeply, but only. once. The other lunged at him with a cry and snatched it. "Give me that cigarette!" "I've had enough of this foolish ness," Wally stormed. "You are dis charged!" - "I wish I was." "You are!" - Not!" ' - "I say you are fired!" Glass stared at him. "Oh, I mean it! I won't be bullied." "Very well." Glass rose ponderous ly. "I'll wise up that queen of yours," Mr." Speed." ""ou aren't going to talk to Miss 'D' You Kaow Who That Is?" I'Blafce? Wait!" Speed wilted miser- 1 ably.. She mosia't know. ' I I hire Yu over again. "Suit yourself.' j "You see, don't you? My love for ! Helen Is the only serious thing I ever . "Hurry tth, ff diyllghtl" - "Where?" - " ' . . - -" "Come,, now, you got to rtffl fiTi miles before breakfast!" Speed sat up with a groan. If 1 run five miles," he said, "I won't want any breakfast," and he laid himself down . again gratefully he was very sore whereat his companion fairly dragged him out of bed. As yet the room was black, although the windows were grayed by the first faint streakii of dawn.- From the adjoining room came a chorus of distress: snores of every size, volume, and degree of . in tensity, from the last harrowing gasp of strangulation ttf the bold trumpet ings of a bull moose. -There were long-drawn sighs, groan6 of torture, rumbling blasts. Speed shuddered. "They sound like a troop of trained- sea-lions," he said. . ; "Don't wake 'em up. Here!" Glass yawned widely, and tossed a bundle of sweaters at his companion. - "Ugh! These clothes are all wet and cold, and it feels like blood!" "Nothin but the mornin dew." "It's perspiration." "Well, a little sweat won't hurt you." "Nasty word." Speed . yawned fh turn, "Perspiration 1 I can't wear wet clothes," uid would have crept back into his bed. This time Glass deposited him upon a stool beside the table, and then lighted a candle,- by the sickly glare of which he selected a pair of running- shoes. "Why didn't you leave me alone T grumbled the younger man. "The only pleasure I get is in sleep I for get things then." 7 "Yes," retorted the former, sarcas- tically, and you also seem to forget that these are our last days among tha living, Saturday the big thing comes off." "Forget! 'I dreamed about It!" The boy sighed heavily. It was the ,hour In which hope reaches its lowest ebb and vitality is weakest. He was very cold and very miserable.' .You ain't got no edge on me," the other acknowledged, 'mournfully. "I'm too young to die, and that's a bet." Suddenly the pandemonium in the bunk-house was pierced by the bra zen .jangle of an alarm-clock, whereat a sleepy voice cried: "Cloudy, kill that . clock!" "The Indian uttered some IndiBtln guishable epithet, and the next instant there tame a crash as the offending timepiece was hurled violently against the wan. In silence Glass shoved his unsteady victim ahead of him out into the dawn. In the east the sun was rising amid a riotous splendor. At any other time, under any other circumstances, Speed could not have restrained his admira tion, for the whole world was a glori ous sparkling panoply of color. But to the -stiff and wearied Eastern lad it was all cruelly mocking. - When he halted listlessly to view its .beauties he was goaded forward, ever forward faster and faster, until finally, amid protests and sighs and complaining joints, he. broke into a heavy, flat-footed jog-trot that 'Jolted the artistic sense -entirely out of him.1 CHAPTER XII. T WAS usually a procedure not alone of difficulty but of diplomacy as well, to rout out the ranch-hands of the Flying Heart without en gendering hostile relations that might bear fruit during the day.

Carara, - for Instance, breathed Spanish oath as. he combed his hair, and when the foreman inquired the reason, replied: : T don' sleep good, I. been t'lnk mebbe I lose my saddle on this foot race."

V TO BE POPULAR THIS FALL Forecast of Styles That Have Been Settled On as the "Smartest of the Smart." In the majority of fall models wom en will look older. This is because the bonnet, mushroom and bell shapes have given way to the hat with an up turned brim, and to be strictly in style the brim. must turn at the-back. ' If you are young and fair to look on., by all means wear a. chinband on your new fall hat. This can be of vel vet ribbon, taffeta or moire or of tulle and maline. It can have a fastening by means of a hook and eye, or the streamers can be tied at one side, co auettishly under one ear or . just in front. The chinband will be noticeable on hats for afternoon and evening. . One "cap" is of velvet, with a puffed crown and a visor which comes down la front. At one side is a panache mounting to a great height and giving a dashing effect that would look well with a military suit. On; a black velvet hat for evening there Is used chantilly lace far the brim imd for the wired bowv at the back that holds the turned-up brim. The sugar-scoop hat of. black velvet will bo a typical fall style. It has no clearly defined crown and .the greatest height is at the back. The tilt is down toward the nose, and a bandeau is frequently the. means to the end. In a boat-shaped hat the length from front to back is emphasized by a hori zontal line of feathers. The brim flares up decidedly at the side. . There has been inspiration in the jockey's cap, -which Is now shown in green velvet, the brim turned up at the back and extending out in front. Wired loops rise at the back. ' A visor cap has a satin extension in front, a low crown and loops of ribbon at each side pointing backward. Hidden Sashes. : Half hidden sashes, are considered the grand chic. The Bash frankly en circles the waist and forms a more or less conspicuous bow at the back. Then' the end3 pass under a tunic of lace' chiffon or machine embroidery according to the nature of the costume emerging at the knee to fall over the skirt. Sometimes the ends of the Bash are knotted under the semi transparent tunic and caught against the cldrt. to give the' clinging effect now fashionable. . Indeed, most sash ends are now ' attached to. the 'skirt In some fashion, for floating ends are anything but smart If the eash Is not sewed against the skirt at. its ends, , it is at least i substantially weighted, so that even when ; the wearer dances the ends fall limp and straight . . '. Women Wear Sandals. Cothurnes, the quaint laced ; foot gear of the season, may lead us to the . sandal period again. A great many ' smart" women are wearing sandals in I their, homes, and, cf course, any num j ber favor sandals for the country, but ; sandals on city, pavements are neith er sensible nor practicu, and it is to l hoped they - will not become fashionable." . ; - . . 1 V - : Fall Colors. -,: '?- Araong the fall colors Is curious Bhad-3; of green known as Bakst green Copper; brick, silver and violet in ex quisite tones are among the colors' of beautiful new fabric"'. decollette. FOR THE NEGLIGEE OR NIGHT Charming" Robes in the Lightest of Silks Well Suited for Wear on Separate Occasions. Alluring robes in delicately colored crepe de chine and white lace are list ed as nightgowns, but may quite as properly. be worn as negligees, and most women buy them for that pur pose. The back and front, each cut from a single breadth of double-width crepe de . chin j are so -gradually sloped from the lower edge finished with an a-jour-headed hem to the bust, that nowhere is there an atom too much fullness. At the top the crepe de chine widths at. back and front are opened at the right side and drawn in a point to that shoulder, while the other side is caught under the left arm. ' The entire lower sec tion is swung from a deep yoke oi white lace whose neck is drawn taut by a ribbon run beading after the robe is on, for there is no other open ing and no fastening to bother with. The elbow sleeves are simply wide puffs of lace ending in narrow ruffles gathered with ribbon and beading. PRETTY COMBINATION. The combined knickers and camisolt has now become very popular wear, and here we show a'pretty design. The camisole has a square opening edged with beading and lace, the lit ter,cnly finishing tha armhple. Wide beading forms the raist-band, also edges the legs, to which are set deep material frills, trimmed with in sertion, tucks and lace.; : Materials required: , a yards 40 inches wide, l1 yard narrow, 2 yards wide beading, 2 & yards inser tion, 2 yards wide and 3 : yards nar row lace, 4 yards wide and yard narrow ribbon -- t . - ;r- . v' iraaioNAL t'- fBy E. O. SELLERS, Director of Evening Department. The Moody Bible InsUtuU, Chicago.) - - ... LESSON FOR SEPTEMBER 21 THE GOLDEN CALF. ' LESSON TEXT Ex. 32:15-20. 30-35. GOLDEN TEXT "My little children guard yourself from idols." I Job a 5:2L It is incredible that these Israelites should turn aside after gods mada with man'B hand3 in the very midst of such a demonstration of the holi ness, majesty and glory of Jehovah. Yet in life it is always but a step from glory to degradation, and one of the easiest moments in which to trip up the saint is at the time of his great est ecstacies. The human heart "is absolutely unreliable, unstable, nay, it is wicked and is desperately de ceitful, Jer. 17:9. Following the giv ing of the decalogue God gave Moses.. a series of laws and ordinances which are an application of that fundamental law and which form "the book oC the covenant" Then the elders oC Israel are called up into the mountain,. given a visionof God, and given to eat and drink in his presence, symbol izing communion (Ex. 24). After this Moses and his servant Joshua leave Aaron and Hur in charge of the peo ple and go up again into the mountain. On the seventh day Moses entered tha cloud and remained for a period of 40 days during which time he received? the pattern of the tabernacle and the order of worship. It was during thia period of time that, the people sinned.'. The first part oX this chapter tell. us the fact of the casting of the calf, w. 1-6. God's righteous anger andi Moses' prayer of intercession, vv. 7:14 Israel's boast, 19:8, 24:3, 7, is now re vealed as being but utter weakness and illustrates the worthlessness and unreliability of human nature. . Tha drunkard's promised sobriety, the un clean man's promised purity, alika- melt In the fierce heat of temptation. Their sin was a direct, positive vio lation of the first commandment, and1, in it they also broke the second. They did not want to siyfcstitute but rather sought a similitude of God. Aaron, here appears in a poor light; he did: not like their proposition (vv. 7, 8), but did not have strength of character sufficient to stand against it. Aaron is like those in the church and out of It who prefer to control a movement which is bad rather than to combat the movement in its entirety. Human Fickleness. Notice' Aaron's attempt to link old Ideas with this, new-fangled religion, this "modern expression," "tomorrow is the feast of Jehovah," v. 6. Men and women are today attempting to gloss evil teaching and open sin by associating with it the name of Christ To call such an association scientific is a travesty. The fact, however, that Aaron gave the Israelites what they asked for, shows that he had some idea at least of God's attitude towards his people. We have here presented also the fickleness of human gratitude Moses is with God on their behalf -(Heb. 7:25), yet they forget him and God who had performed such mighty signs on their behalf, and demand new new leadership (v. 1 and Ps. 106:21). Art has a place in religious life, but a spiritual worship alone is acceptable to God, John 4:24. It was a sacrifice (w. 2, 3) of gold to make possible this calf which was doubtless a representation of the Egyptian god Apis and may or may not have been life-size, and may have been solid or only veneer, but neith er such earnestness nor sacrifice' saved, them. God's Word Immutable. Moses' prayer of intercession, rvi 11-14, is wonderful. It centers about: the Idea that Israel is "Thy people" (v. 11), and that God's word is Im mutable, "Remember," etc (v. 13). MoseB was moved with pity and had a. passion. for the honor of God's name. As Moses and Joshua approached the camp they heard music, v. 17. What a commentary upon the debasing use cf one of God's noblest gifts to man., the gift of music. ' Reaching the camp,, they beheld . the fullness of Iniquity and depravity which was. the develop ment of this disobedience, v. 23. See also Rom. 1:21-25, Rom. 6:23, Jas. 1:15. Moses' passion also manifested itself against their sin by breaking the ta bles, grinding the calf to powder and? compelled them to, drink the water . into which It was flung. In order td complete this story we snould call attention (w. 30-35) how Moses returned Into God's presence made a confession for the people, truly taking the place of intercession when he desired to - be blotted out rather ; than have their sin go unforgiven. Oo v on into the next chapter, w. 13,; 14.. and read his grtiat heart cry and God's answer of grace. '. . , . . The Teaching. We have here a story of the frailty of. human niiture and the' feebleness of human resolutions. We see In Aaron the weakneff of a religious leader who attempts t com promise or to yield to the clamor of a mistake if people. There is also pres ent In this lesson the possibility of prostituting right things. The Israel iteB made a proper request in their de sire to go forward. They lacked pa tience, and.hiade the mistake of de siring . something ihat appealed to their senses. We thus see the disas ter of disobedience, eveu though th ted desired be a good one. i ! ! .1 . - M i . t A ; 1 iil.
