HORN BECK Phone 281 In the Picnv une Block m _ , t 1 Polly and the Ouija Board By H. LOUIS RAYBOLD (Copyright.) The position of flagman at Saunders Crossing, which the railroad company gave John Peters when he injured his foot whjie acting as brakeman a one ; of their trains, had its delights and j Its torments. It was an easy Job with considerable leisure time attached, but it afforded him too frequently the sight of Polly farr. who lived in the little red bouse at the fop of the hill. Not that Polly was disagreeable to look upon, yulte the contrary. Any girl Is pleasant to set- whose eyes sparkle with the Joy of living, whose curving mouth turns upward at the corners and In whose cheeks shines the glow of health and youth. Hut when John hurt his foot he gave op the thought of Polly. Ask a girl to marry a cripple, with nothing better than the Job of flagging trains? Well, he should say not. And Polly, who had been on tip-toe for the question to which she could so truthfully say "yes," was left to wonder If she had been mistaken In thinking he carwd. Now Polly, otherwise eminently sen sible, was the most superstitious little body Imaginable. Then one bright May morning the north-bound train slowed down and stopped at the crossing. Out stepped Polly's up-country aunt with umbrella and traveling hag. Polly was glad to see her aunt, part ly hecnuse she was fond of her, and a very great deal because now\ It would he quite all right to invite John Peters to supper. If she had known that Aunt Susan carried In her bag something which would prove more efficacious In John's case than any love philter, she would have fallen on her aunt's neck and blessed her. That something was an ouija hoard. When John received from Polly the Invitation to supper he had half a mind to n'fuse. “I'll Initiate you into the mysteries of the ouija hoard,” she promised. “Aunt and 1 work at It every eve ning. And every single thing It says Is true!" she added solemnly. Ordinarily John had three hours at supper time when neither north nor wouth-hound train was due at the crossing. On the very night of Pol ly's Invitation however, he was no tified by the dispatcher at the junction to throw the switch for a freight. Throughout the meal, delicious evi dence of Polly’s ability to cook, he kept his brain working at the words, even as he praised with masculine ap preciation the featherweight biscuits, steak done exactly right and flaky pie After supper Aunt Susan gave Polly a little push. “I’m going to wash up, ili’ld. Yon run along in the parlor and entertain Mr. Peters." And Polly, after one dutiful hut weak protest, olteycd. "lad’s get out tic ouija board." she suggested. “You ask It the first ques tion and see what happens!” So John, thinking how pretty Polly’s pink cln eks were, wanted to know if It would rain in the morning. Heads close together, fingers resting lightly on the triangular hit of wood, they waited for the ouija spirit to start vor! ing. Polly poip'-d when John d'dn’l ecjii iiupre-.sod at the vaguely |1 ('. 'lice reph of "M i vhe." (Question fi |t evrd question, turn and turn about, with niori or h - —marvelous re sponse Then Polly, her color deep . r,g a liit. inquired if she would ever marry. “Some d: v,” came the answer. "Who?" dared Polly. John, his fingers trembling In spite of hini1 > If, await' d the answer with (ropldai ion What was Polly—or the ouija hoard up to? Slowly the letters spelled out Into a word “A s w-i-t-e h m V John sprang up as If shot. Down cluttered the hoard and plunchette. Seizing his cane, the man leaped to the front door, opened It and was gone. Polly, thunderstruck, stood where she had risen her cheeks drained of their roslness. What was It? It couldn't he how Silly of her even to think of it. John wouldn't leave like llutt lust because he thought he was he ng proposed to. Hut then* was some thing wrong. Quickly she went *mt to the little ;>orch Par down the hill sounded she tap tap of John’s earn* and his swift footfalls. There was another lound— slow, monotonous rumbling— i then a whistle for the t'rossing. She must Hud out if he got there In Mine llatless, reinless -he ran down j the Idll, only to meet John, hreathing henvlly, on the w ay h: ek "Were you in time?" ..rled. “Thank leaven yes'" he answered. ' Then, "Polly," hi' demanded quhl.ly, "what was that answer going to he?" Polly gulped down a little mi|> "t ’ ain't you guess?" she ashed. "A svvlti hiiianhe said slowly M r" Vlld .as Polly was ill lit he eon tinned, vvortder'ngly: “Would yon ■narry a rrhude?" “T wouldn't '.all any man a nipt ’' hat could get down the hill like that !" flashed Polly With a happy sigh John yielded to temptation "I have wanted you so Polly dear" he whispered. "Isn't the oul.ia hoard wonderful?' sniil Polly a minute later from tin depth of John's shoulder John patted her head lovlnglv “Well it eouldn’t do nuteh nne,. t a man than save his reputation am give him his best girl, now could It?' he said. — I CHILD SAVING WORK i IN ARMENIA TOLD BY AN AMERICAN Charles V. Vickrey Gives Facts of Near East Relief Pro gram for Orphans. Chtrles V. Vickrey, genera! secre tary of the Near East Relief, has re turned from a trip of inspection throughout Central Europe and the Near East, and made a report to the trustees of the Near East Ftelipf In which he covers In detail the actual work of child saving now being eon ducted by the great American relief organization In ihe Near East. Mr Vickrey believes that “a few millions of dollars wisely expended at this time In the education of the children of the Near East, In character hoikUng and In moulding these young Uvea, wUl be worth vastly more to the world CHARLES V VICKREY than billions of dollars spent later in suppressing International warfare and Strife ” Mr. Vickrey considers the need In the Near East and especially Is Ar menia greater than anywhere else In the world, because, as he says, “In the countries of Central Europe there are going governments which have merely been temporarily Impoverished by war. In the Near Enst, on the other hand, there Is no such thing as stable gov ernaient- The whole fabric of the state has to be created from the be ginning, and the Innocent and help less children have to he trained to the responsibilities of future citizenship. Peace In the Near East and, in great measure, throughout the world, will depend very largely on the character of the citizenship of the peoples of the Near East " Irresistible Appeal of Orphans. Describing the orphanage work of the Near East Relief in the Armenian Republic, Mr Vickrev said: “We have at Alexandropol In the Caucasus, otie orphanage where there ure approximately 10,(MX) homeless children, fatherless or motherless, mam of them having no known living relative Some of thpin do not even know their own names, or the place of their birth They have shown wonder ful recuperative powers, and to see them pla.v their kindergarten or other games under the direction of our Ameri can relief workers one could never be lieve that they had passed through the years of suffering that most of them have experienced since they, or their parents, were driven from their homes In Central Turkey tive years ago. ''K<>r the accommodation of these or phans there are sixty splendid stone buildings erected ns barracks for the Russian army These buildings are now given to us by the Armenian gov ernment for a period of ten years and lend themselves admirably to relief purposes. "This orphanage at Alexandropol Is hut one of the ‘J20 orphanages that the Near East Relief is now operating In various parts of the Caucusus, Anato lia, t'lllcia, Syria and the Constanti nople,Straits area "Thirty miles from Alexandropol, at Kars, there Is another group of Rus sian army barracks, which were given us by the Armenian government for relief purposes. I was going through the dormitories of this orphanage at Kars when the young American col li i* girl In charge turned to me and said: ‘Mr Vickrey, It sometimes makes me feel Just a little older than Me thuselah to be called “Mother” by 0.1 X M * "f those \rmenlau children' Aini that is exactly what she was— tbc only mother that these O.tMMI Ar menian children have, except as she avails herself of the organized assist ance of native Armenian women. In caring for 'Ids large family “In the hospital at Kars I found 1.1 r,0 beds, which, tbc day I was there, were occupied by I.JUS patients, It frequently being nee, sun to put two or more children In a single bed At Alexandropol wo have In cue hospital or group of hospital buildings, l.fitU) trachoma patients At Knniklia, forty tidies cast of Alexandropol we have an orphanage devoted exclusively to the care and training of the blind children At iHdIJan we have another orphanage located on a mountain side f-*r the care of tubercular children, this segregation being us much for the welfare of the healthy children in the orphanage* us for the care of the unfortunate consumptive* At Erivan we formerly had twenty-six distinct orphanages, though they have uow beau reduced and consolidated to •even in number.
