I hope he's a patient sort of fellow." He was the prospective landscape gardner, whom Walter M—, an old friend, was sending down at Richard'- l 1 it BOBBY" i request, and who was to begin work Immediately on the A— 's country es j täte. Wulter M—, an agricultural ex ! pert, was a man to be relied upon, and the A—s had left the matter of selec tion wholly to him. The result of their request had been a telegram, an nouncing that ''Bobby G —personal ! friend aDd expert," would arrive at Way Fells on the afternoon express from the city. The train was Just pulling out of the station when Richard stopped the au tomobile at the curbing. There were only a few arrivals, as Way Fells con sists mostly of large country estates which are reached more easily by mo tor than by train. A peddler with his pack, an elderly gentleman, who was met by an enthusiastic pnrty, a girl In brown, who carried a suitcase, and a fussy little woman with two fussier little children were the only passen gers to get off at Way Fells. Deciding that the fellow must have lost his train, Richard was turning away again toward his car, when a sweet but hesitating voice caught his attention. It was the girl in brown talking to the freight agent. "Could you tell me," she was saying, "whether I could hire any sort of con veyance here to take me to Mr. Rich ard A—'s estate—'Bellemere,' I think it Is called?" "Ah, some friend of mother's, prob ably," thought Richard, though, she didn't write, asking some one to meet her. I never saw her be fore, that's certain." "I beg your pardon," he said, ap proaching the girl. "I am Richard A— and I should be glad to take you up. Mother must have forgotten that yon were coming. Is this your suitcase, Miss— er — er?" Funny, Miss G —. Roberta G —; but you must are mistaken. Surely Mr. M have written to say that I was eom I am the landscape gardener Ing. whom Mrs. A— asked Mr. M— to send down here?" "Roberta G —!

Richard's manner was still the same, although he was necessarily brought Into close companionship with her, for Mrs. A— preferred that her son should manage all detulls of the estate. When Roberta had been at Belle mere for almost a month word was brought to the house by one of the workmen that Miss G — had been thrown from her horse near the out skirts of the estate almost a mile away. Mrs. A— was very much alarm ed and sent her son back with the workman at once. Richard took the little car and has tened to reach the spot where the ac cident occurred, scene he reproached himself for the unnecessary coolness with which he had treated Roberta.

Can and will the Treaty, if rati fied, bind the United States to interfere constantly in European affairs with its army, navy and money? Hardly, unless public opinion approves of intervention. The treaty undertakes tc separate millions of people from their nationals and place them under the jurisdiction of new states of differ ent racial strains. The Treaty multiplies the number of potential Alsace-Lorraines by ten. If these forcibly created racial minorities have their rights properly safe guarded, if they are treated as equals before the law, if they are given linguistic and religious freedom, the wound will heal in time and the different races will get along as well together as the French, German and Italian elements of Switzerland. But if the dominant race tries by force to denationalize the minority, as the Germans did in Alsace-Lor raine and Poland, as the Serbs are doing right now in Montenegro and Croatia,then new conflicts are inevitable.—Sunset magazine. Banks It is not as popular today for the multitude to condemn banks as it was a few years ago. The people have found out during the war that the great system of banks in the U. S„ in co operation with the people made it possible to provide the government with the money that carried the war to a success ful termination.
