CHAPTER XI. Continued.
"We are ready!" called Jean gayly.
"What In the- world" Helen
paused at sight of the swathed figure.
"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

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

"Oh, they won't kill us."
"I tell 3Tou these cow-persone is

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-
"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
"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. No emo
tion till after this race. Wally."
."You're an Idiot! This whole affair
is preposterous ridiculous." -
-."And yet it. don't make us laugh
does it?" Glass mocked.
"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
"Very well." Glass rose ponderous

. "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-
"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
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. This morning Still
Bill Stover had more' than
his customary share of trouble, , for
they seemed pessimistic.

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
. . '. 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." . ; -

Copper; brick, silver and violet in ex
quisite tones are among the colors' of

Charming" Robes in the Lightest
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.
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

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.
