"In less than Ave minutes," retorted Blake, glancing at the clock, "It'll be too late for the morning papers. We'll lake a chance." "Remember!" answered Standish with1 sudden vehemence, "I warn you "What's that, Jennings!" Mark waa calling over the wire. "Yes. I tell you I am Robertson and I am speaking for Mr. Blake. What do you say you want! I can't catch It!" , "Blake!" continued Standlsh. "I warn you I'll deny the story. .And If you get the Woman's name.you'11 " "Deny It, will you!" drawled Blake. "Hell! You haven't time to get a wire before they go to press. The story'll be all over America before your denial can leave Washington." "I tell you," Mark was roaring into the transmitter, "that I'm speaking on Mr. Blake's authority. Oh, all right, then! Hold the wire. Jim," he went on, turning to Blake, "Jennings says he won't send out that story without your personal orders. He knows your voice. He says If you'll tell him, over Ihe phone, that It Is all right, he'll go ahead. Hurry. There's only about a , minute left." He handed the instrument across the table to 31ake. "Father!" entreated Grace, seizing Blake's arm. "For my sake, you mustn't " "Grace!" snapped Blake. "I'm plumb ashamed of you. You're acting like a nick schoolgirl. Go to your room. Hello, Jennings! This is Blake Hello" "Hold on, Blake!" ordered Standish "I'll give you her name. She" "Wait!" screamed Grace, beside her- self with pain and fear. "Hello!" Blake was calling wrath fully. "Hello! What in blue blazes is the matter! You've cut us off, cen tral. 'Wire won't work?' Tell you It's got to work! Hey! What's that? 'Out of order?' And I haven't sixty seconds to wait! I must! What ?--Oh, a lot of good your being sorry does! Say! Who am I talking to, anyway! Miss Kelly? Well I'll be!" Blake dropped the receiver on to its hook and set down the Instrument with the most profane bang ever heard. "A damn without words," Nell Ban afterward called it. Jim glanced again at his watch. "Gentlemen," he announced with dangerous calm, "we're too late. Miss AMAZONS ASKED NO FAVORS Women In Dahomeyan Army Com pelled the Admiration of Their French Conquerors. An Interesting account of the Drowess of the Dahomeyan Amazons, the female furies who fought the French during their struggle with the refractory King Behanrin, is given by Mr. Frederlo Martyn In his book, "Ufa In the Legion." The author, a former English officer, enlisted in the Foreign Legion of France and aaw B- ri fighting both in Tonkin and in DuLomey.

Downatalrs Wanda Kelly emlled beattflcally to heraolf and fluffed out a strand of her hair thut bad strayed over her forehead. CHAPTER XVII. Preparing the Grill. In the dumb disappointment that fell over the group in Mark Robert son's library, the men's eyes gradually turned as by common consent upon Jim Blake. Unruffled, he stood there, master of them all and even master of himself. "Gentlemen," he drawled at last, we've got our work cut out for us. We've misled ihe morning papers now, it remains to get our story on the floor of the house tonUtht. To force adjournment. That will give ub time." "But." objected Van Dyke, pointing to tne duplicate telephone list, "we can't get those numbers traced until tomorrow. And we've got to get the name before we dare spread the story In the house. It was different with the newspapers. But " "We shall get the Woman's name in the next hour," Blake assured him. "How!" "Through the only person left who can tell us what the right number is. The phone girl who Interfered with our wire Just now. Nellgan, go down and tell Perry I want to see Miss Kelly up here at once. Bring her up, yourself. Now, then, Mark," as Nell gan departed on his errand, "it's up to you. If the house knows we've got the goode on Standish, fully twenty, men like Gregg, here, will weaken and vote for us. And then we can Jam the bill through. Get this Woman's name. Find the number we want, You've got the reputation of being the best cross-examiner at the New York bar.

You've got to get it from her. Don't handle her with gloves or be afraid of making her cry. It's life or death for us to know that number." There was a knock at the door. Gregg answered it. Nellgan entered. all but shoving Wanda Kelly In ahead of him. "Here she la," he reported. Leaving her standing there, he turned and ostentatiously closed the door behind him. The girl looked about at the faces any of us. They were armed with Spencer repeating rllles, and made much better use of them than the men made of their carbines. For work at close quarters, they had a small, heavy-backed chopping sword, or knife, very much like a South Ameri can machete. "They fought like unchained de mons, and If driven into a corner, did not disdain to use their teeth and nails. A marine Infantryman seized and disarmed one of them In this fight, but sne was so far from being beaten that she turned on her captor and began to bite his nose oft. "The uniform of these female war riors was a sort of kilted divided skirt of blue) cotton stuff. The garment barely reached to the knees. It was supported at the waist by a leather belt that carried the cartridge pouch es. They wore little or nothing above the waist, but on their heads they wore a coquettish red fei, or tarboosh, ornamented with an eagle's feather. These women were all exceedingly well developed, and some of them were handsome in their own way. "We of the Legion bad a good od- that confronted tier on every 1(1. fr - Tlioii ahe ainlM.

The Third Da "MIhb Kelly, began Mark, after a full minute of a silence that bit Into Wanda's very nerves, "you say you were at the switchboard downstairs a few momenta ago?" Yes. sir." 'While I was talking to the Asso ciated Press office?" "How can I tell, slr!"sbe asked with smiling helplessness. "You know we're not allowed to listen to conver sations over the wire.' But you connected me when I called up 4400 Main Just now?" "Oh, yes, sir." "H'm! You remember that, do you? f Well, that Is the number of the Asso ciated Press office. I called up Jen nings, the manager. I talked with him a minute. incn ne wanted to sneak with Mr. Blake." 'Yea, sir?" asked Wanda, who had been following his recital with the wide-eyed delighted Interest of a child listening to a wondrous fairy tale. "Mr. Blake took the telephone In strument from my hands," pursued Mark, unheedtng, "and spoke Into It." Wanda turned slowly and gazed up on Blake In pleased amazement that he could have performed so sensation al a feat as Mark had just described. Then she looked back at Mark as though unwilling to miss a single word of such an enthralling narrative. 'But," continued Mark, "when he tried too speak to Jennings he found the connection had suddenly been severed." "Oh!" There was a world of sympathetic regret in her exclamation. "He was told," said Mark slowly, he waa told by you. Miss Kelly that the line was out of order." "OK yea!" she cried brightly. "And thi. hust have been why the connec tion was cut off. What a shame! Just when he wanted to talk, too!" I suppose," said Mark carelessly. "If the line had got out of order, the manager's office would know of It by this time?" 'Oh, yes." 'Very good," reaching for the instru ment. "I'll call up the manager and ask about it." Oh, no!" she exclaimed, momen tarily off guard. "It's It's probably all right again by now." "Very likely," was Mark's dry as- senU "Then you don't want me to call up the manager?" 'Don't bother to do that," sho fal tered In confusion. "I I might pos sibly have knocked out the plug by accident."" "And you might possibly have done it on purpose," retorted Mark. "I?" she asked, astounded. "Why should I do such a foolish thing aa that?" "That's what we're going to find out If It had been an accident, you would have shoved the plug back Into place, Immediately, when we told you. Isn't that true?" "I a'pose so," she admitted sulkily. "Then, Miss Kelly, we are forced to believe that you dellberatly refused to transmit our message." "You can believe anything you want to," she returned spitefully. "I don't care what you believe!" The line of questioning had thrown her off her carefully prepared line of defense. Angry, confused, she tossed aside her useless weapons and was for the instant merely a worried and much badgered little girl. "Is it not true," repeated Robertson in measured query, "that you delib erately refused to transmit our mes sage just now?" "I s'poee so," she vouchsafed. "I butted in. And now I guess I've got to take my medicine." "And," asked Mark, "do you happen to realize what that medicine is?" "Oh, I know, all right. I'll lose my Job." . "Exactly. And you don't want to lose your job, do you. Miss Kelly?" "No, I don't. I need the money." . "I see. Quite so. You need the money. Miss Kelly, Mr. Blake has of- portunlty of seeing them in action and we were much impressed with their dash and gallantry." Youth' Companion. Trading Stamp Idea Upheld. The court of appeals of Maryland In State vs. Caspary holds that a law prohibiting the trading stamp business is unconstitutional and void as amounting to the destruction of a law ful business. . The court held that the legislature may not under the guise ot protecting lawful interests interfere with private busineas. It rules that the issuance of trading stamps is not tainted with an element of chance nor violative of a statute prohibiting the dealing in trading stamps for any thing uncertain or undetermined at the time of the acquisition of the stamps. The court cited the following language of the New York court of appeals in People vs. Gilson: "Such a regulation ot trade is In our opinion not only unwise but unlawful, because It is necessary neither for the health, safety nor welfare of the people, and which in its operation would be op pressive and 'burdensome." red you a great deal of money for a certain lilt of Information, huan't he?"! nut -tin. aimt thn use?

"You knew beforehand, from Mr. Blake, how much depended on It. You surely remember." "That's so," acceded Wanda, seeming to grasp the strength of his argument aa by Inspiration. "I surely must. But, you see, It's agalnet the rules to tell. Oh, gentlemen," she cried longingly, "I'd Just love to help you out Any thing I could do. Anything at all. But we're not allowed to give any informa tion like this. Oh, how I wish !" "If you were allowed, then," aaked Mark, "you'd do It, wouldn't you?" "That'd be different, of course," she smiled. "But you see how I'm flxed- "That's too bad!" mused Mark. "Of course we can't ask you to break the company', rules. But If It were not against rules, you'd do It would you?" "Oh, In a second! I'd be ever eo glad to; but, you see, orders aro or ders. And " 'And," chimed In Mark, "luckily we knew how faithful you are to your em' ployers. Here," taking a paper from a heap on the table, "Is an order from your general manager, authorizing you to give us all the help In your power. Does that remove your scruples?" For an instant she sat genuinely dumfounded. One by one her defenses were being shorn away. With a great effort she strove to rally her pitiful little forces to meet the new on slaught. "Oh, then," she broke down weakly, I s'pose I'd better tell you." Her surrender snapped the tension. Blake nodded grim approval. The oth er listeners relaxed. Even Robertson's hard mouth softened in exultation. "That's right!" applauded Mark. You won't be sorry for It" "Well," asked Mark, "what was the number?" 'The number?" echoed Wanda ab sently. 'Was it a district number?" queried Mark, his face giving no sign of any thing but desire to refresh her mem ory. "Oh, yes!" cried Wanda, her eyes brightening. "A district number. Yes I remember that It was a district num- ber.' "What exchange?" A further futile ransacking of the mind. "Was it Main?" She shook her head. "Cleveland?" "N-no." "Takoma?" "Yes! Yes! It'e all come back to me now, sir. it was lakoma. mat was it. Takoma. 678 Takoma! "678 Takoma," repeated Mark, while Van Dyke ran a searching finger down the list he held. "You are quite sure, Miss Kelly, that It was 678 Takoma?" "Oh, yes, indeed!" Wanda assured him in eager triumph. "678 Takoma. I remember " "It wasn't 876 Takoma?" "Oh, no, sir, 678." Mark glanced at Van Dyke, who HARD TO PREVENT GAMBLING Veteran English Sportsman Call an "Ineradloable Foible of Hu man Nature." It "Betting Is an Ineradicable foible of human nature." Thus declares the earl of Durham, who, being fifty-eight years old, and from his youth a pa tron of "the sport of kings," speaks as an authority. Lord Durham, while declaring that betting Is not a crime, yet admits that it Is not a virtue. "It Is usually an unhealthful excite ment and an expensive amusement" eays the earl, who Is a steward of the jockey club and one of the most prom inent of race horse owners on the British turf. "It Is seldom, I think, a real enjoyment to those who Indulge in it Legislation can not stamp out this universal human passion, but it need not foster it" Lord Durham has lately led In a movement to abolish tlpsteri adver tisements in the English newspapers, and to that end fathered a bill in the house of, lords.

Then be picked up the Hat that Van Dyke bad Juat laid down. 'Many of these numbers," he said, half to himself, "can b eliminated at once. For Instance, here' my own call to New York 1001 Plaza" 'They've charged you for two calls. Mark," commented Van Dyke, glanc ing at the list over Robertson's shoul der. "See! Plaza 1001 twice.

Van Dyke nod ded, rose and crossed to a case tiered celllng-high with law books. You spoke just now, Miss Kelly,' continued Robertson, "of taking your medicine. And I aeked you If you knew what sort of medicine it might be." Don't rub It In," she snapped. "I'm going to lose my Job.

But, instead, you've won In your great fight to make me lose my Job. That ought to help some. And it proves that even If you can't lick a man like Standish you're still live wires." "One moment, Miss Kelly," inter vened Mark, opening the calfskin vol ume Van Dyke had Just brought him from the book-shelves. "You spoke of losing your job. I'm afraid that isn't all you'll Iobc." No," she agreed, "I'll lose the blood money I could have raked In If I'd sold you the Woman's name." "And your liberty." "My my what?" "Your liberty, Miss Kelly," repeated Mark, eying the startled girl with stormy unconcern. You mighty finance Jugglers live so long on the razor edge of jail," she scoffed with a bravado that somehow would not ring true, "that you ought to be experts on all the stunts people can be locked up for. But this time the blurs too thin." (TO BE CONTINUED.) To Make Whitewash 8tlck. In making whitewash that will not scale off, I find tho following very good: Dissolve blue in hot water, and add in the proportion of a pint of water to four gallons of whitewash; or dissolve an ounce of gum arable In a pint of boiling water and stir In, observing the same proportions. Be fore applying this or any other wash, scrape the wall clean and smooth. Another good method is to add ultra' marine glue, as It gives a pretty tint A little salt added to the whitewash Is very good; It prevents it from rub blng off. Exchange. Ought to Be, Anyhow, At dinner Mollle gaied for a long time at a bachelor guest, and then ex claimed "Mother, what Is an old bachelor?" A frown was the only reply. But a laugh burst forth from the assembled company when Mollle answered the question to suit herself. "Oh, I know! An old bachelor is an old maid's husband! Whether or not the betting instinct Is, as Lord Durham, says, 'an "inerad icable foible," it has manifested itself in all ages and among all peoples. In ancient England the loser of a wager was often made a slave to the win ner and sold in traffic like other mer chandise, The philosophic Wo Ting-fang once refused an invitation to visit a race course, saying: "It is well known to me that one horse can run faster than another. I do not noed an ocular dem onstration." That Indifference is not shared by Mr. Wu's countrymen, how. ever, for the Chinese are the most In yeterate of gamblers. Bear Kill Runaway Girl. After a week's search the body ot Miss Vlnnle Colt, aged eighteen, was found In a ravine In the Sierra Neva das. 20 miles from Truckee, Cal. She had been killed and partly devoured by a bear.

There la a wonderful teaching In ths story of the two memorials (Ch. 4) that Joshua erncted after Israel had passed over the Jordan. One 1 left to be overwhelmed by the river, the other Is erected in OUgaL They mark the distinction between Chrlat's" death under Judgment In the believer's place, and the bellevefs perfect deliverance from Judgment See Ps. 42:7 and 88:7; Joah. 12:31-33. The atones In the Jordan stand typlo ally for Ps. 22:1-18. In chapter five Is the record of tha reproach of unbelief, "rolled away" (v. 9) the cessation ot the manna (v. 12) and the appearance of the "cap tain of the Lord's host" (rv. 13-16) unto Joshua aa he waa making a re connaissance before Jericho. I. God's Ordars, vv. 1-5. The fame Of the Israelitea had preceded them (ch. 2:9) and that this was added too by the miraculous deliverance at the Jordan Is suggested In verse one Verse two suggests that again they must proceed upon the bare word of Jehovah, and humanly speaking, how utterly absurd appear the divine or ders. Jehovah's Word Followed. II. Joshua's Instructions, vv. 6-8. A reading of this section reveals the fact that Joshua diligently followed out the word of Jehovah. Preceding the people waa the ark, and we need to remember what It contained and that It Is a type ot Christ. Following the armed men and the priests came the silent host (v. 10). No other sound than that of the trumpet ( 13.) This enforced silence was per haps the most severe test of all. It is easy to cry out against sin. There are times, however, when we must keep silence until he gives us tha signal (t. 16), see Isa. 63:7, 8. The walls of Jericho are not to fall by the use of the ordinary Imple ments of war, see 2 Cor. 10:4, and the resultant victory was In no way to give opportunity for human boast Ing, Eph. 2:9; I Cor. 1:26-29. Joshua did not set forth a "more reasonable method;" he did not alter God's or ders; that he had no right to do, nor have we. Rev. 22:18, 19; John 3:2; Matt. 15:6. The implements and tha methods were foolish to those In Jericho and to all unbelievers, see I Cor. 1:21-25. It was the priests who led with the "Jubilee trumpets." typl cal of the gospel which Paul tells la the "power of God," Rom. 1:16. III. The Obedient People, vv. 9-16. One great act of distrust and dis obedience led to those years ot aim' less wandering accompanied by dis comfort and resulting in death to all (save two, Caleb and Joshua) who crossed the Red Sea with Moses. Here we have the contrast. Seven days of patient, obedient marching, according to specific orders, is fol lowed by victory andT possession. What a strange sight this cavalcade must have made. The trumpet blow ing priests; the ark, symbolic of Je hovah's presence and typical ot Christ; the silent multitude. Verily this new generation Is being tested ere they enter into their promised in heritance. On the seventh day they arose earlier and were subjected to a seven-fold test. Our fiercest testing is generally Just before the moment of our greatest victory. D. L. Moody was so tested just before he became the world's great evangelist, see The Christian Workers Magazine for Sep tember, pp. 25. At the end of the seventh circuit came the signal, shout, for Jehovah hath given you the city." Up until that very moment the walls were as strong as ever and doubtless the besieged were increas ingly confident. It was not the shout ing that gained the victory but the accumulation of faith, Heh. 11:30. The powor was not in the blast of the trumpets, for that waa in reality a call upon iU& to ;eniember Israel (Jas. 6:15). V n the church of to day claims - 'lory by naked faith, resting u:;c?i u. hare word of God then It, too, will enter Into the ex periences of possession. It was not a partial victory either, for the walls fell "flat down" (v. 20).
