H is worth while reviewing the atti-
tude of England—the English govern-
ment itself—toward the starving pec-
pUl of Belgium. At first, the cabinet
premised that food supplies might be
sent to Belgium in any quantity, and
further, that a large cash subscription
should be made each month. Later the
monthly contribution of’England was
changed to a lump sum of $250,000,
conditioned upon buying the food in
Holland. But Holland had no food to
spare and had placed an embargo on
exports, and the permission to send
food was rescinded. That left the
Belgians to starve. The American,
Spanish and Belgian diplomatic repre-
sentatives in London bestirred them-
selves to accumulate stores; they pur-
chased a supply, they chartered a ship,
they loaded the ship, they advertised
t/hese facts and that the ship would
sail, and then asked the British cabi-
net what it was ’going to do about it.
In the face of its promises, was it go-
isg to permit the Belgians to starve,
with food in sight?
The English cabinet backed down-
half way. Did anyone ever know the
British government to do anything
whole-heartedly, unless it was some-
tive charge of the pool plan, took ac-
tive stop; to gather in the remaining
millions Kuhn, Loeb Co. of New

In announcing the completion of the
plan, Mr. McAdoo said:
“I am gratified to be able to an-
nounce the success of the cotton loan
fund. Subscriptions for the entire
$100,000,000 of class A certificates
were completed this artemoon. This
assures the success of the plan. To
such extent as banks in the South sub-
scribed to class B certificates the $100,
000,000 realized from the class A cer-
tificates will be available for loans on
cotton at 6 cents per pound. The full
details of the plan have already been
published. The full amount of sub-

weary of this eternal vigilance; and It
was only his fear of (he man known
as the boss that k,spt him at his post.
He wanted a night to carouse in, to
be with the boys.
The man for whom they were lying
in wait was seen presently to creep
cautiously round the side of the house.
He hugged a corner and paused. They
could see the dim outline of his body.
The light in the street back of the
grounds almost made a silhouette of
him. By and by, as if assured that
the coast was clear, he stole down to
Instantly the prowler took to his
heels. Two shots rang out. The man
was seen to stop, stagger, and then go
By the time the men reached the
corner they heard the rumble of a
motor. One dashed back to the car
they had left standing at the curb. He
made quick w’ork of the job, but he
was not quick enough. Still, they gave
chase. They saw the car turn toward
the city. But, unfortunately for the
success of the chase, several automo-
biles passed, going into towrn and leav-
ing it. Checkmate.
Braine was keen enough tonight.
“He is hit; whether badly or not re-
d609tf; mains to be seen. We can find that
out. Drive to the nearest drug store
uncheon and get a list of hospitals. It’s a ten
'to one shot that we land him some-
where among the hospitals."
But they searched the hospitals in
vain. None of them had that night re-
i eivod a shooting case, nor had they
heard one reported. The man had
*- n unmistakably hit. He would not
have dared risx The losr of time for

Later Braine sauntered into Pabst
and ordered a light supper. This
night’s work, more than anything else,
brought home to him the fact that his . ^
luck was changing. For years he had I ^
proceeded with his shady occupations (

any more rides. You’d probably hav
to ride in the afternoon, anyhow, as
every nag is out in the morning."
“Where’s the most popular road?”*
“Toward the park; but Miss Har-
greave always goes along the river-
side road. She doesn't like strangers
“O, I see. Well, I’ll drop in this
afternoon and see your master. They
say that riding is good for a torpid
liver. Have a cigar?”
The grpom proceeded into the sta-
bles and the affablfe stranger took
A free rein; they could work it to

face of it, it appeared to be the sim-
plest job they had yet undertaken.

some natural way after he and the
girl had started. It- was like falling
off a log.
“Susan,” said Florence as she came
into breakfast after her exhilarating
ride, “did you hear pistol shots last
“I heard some noise, but I was so
J sleepy I didn't try to figure out what

’ “Did you, .Tones?"
j “Yes, Miss Florence. The shots
came from the street. A policeman
came running up later and said he

l evidently there wasn’t anybody hurt.
One has to be careful at night now-
adays. There are pretty bad men

i “Very much THit. there were spots

“Miss Florence, if I thought it wfse,
you should be packed to Miss Far-
low’s this minute. But not an hour of
the day or .night passes w ithout this
house being watched. I seldom see
anybody about. I can only sense the1
presence of a watcher. At Miss Far-

prisoner \ \ .t lie r<. I could not ac-

“My father’s orders?”
Jones signified neither one way nor
the other. He merely gazed stolidly
at the rug.
“That blood!" She sprang from her
chair, horrified. “It was his! He was
here last night, and they shot
“There, there, Miss Florence! The
man was only slightly wounded. He’s
where they never will look for him.”’.
Then Jones continued, as with an ef-
fort: “Trust me, Miss Florence. It)
would not pay to run awray. The
whole affair w'ould be repeated else-
where. We might go to the other endi
of the w'orld, but it would not serve us
in the least. It is not w question of
escape, but of who shall vanquish the
other. There is nothing to do but re-,
main here and fight, fight, fight. We
have put four of them in the Tombs,
to say nothing of the gunmen. Thati
is what we must do—put them in a.
safe place, one by one, till we reach#
the master. Then only may we
breathe in safety. But if they watch,
so do we. There is never a moment'
when help is not within reach no mat-
ter where you go. So long as you do
not deceive me, no real harm shall be-
fall you. Don’t cry. Be vour father's
daughter, as I am his servant."
