It was begin- ning to dawn upon her that Uncle Jerry admired Prudence Hapgood that he regarded her as a superior being, worlds removed from the sort of existence which he had known. Before her he was sometimes shy, al- ways awkward" always self-conscious--- he, the nonchalant, self-possessed Jerry Wlnston--and yet he stayed by ! Mrs. Penfleld wondered. Certainly Prudence was different from anyone else in The Custard Cup. She was like a quiet little rowboat that had strayed from Its moorings and had floated into a group of varie- gated craft. Always gentle and friendly, she yet had the slightly aloof manner of one whosb thoughts are turned often inward. So far from being modified by her surround- ings, she had brought r own world into them antd kept it intac Her carefully preserved silk gown; the fine old lace around te neck and edg- ing the sleeves; her sweetly tm poise; the calm expression of her eyea-thhese set her apart from her neighbors, intangibly bat undeniably. She had brought a bit of crocheting; Mrs. Penfleld got out her sewing; Jerry Winston nervously proffered some reminiscences of the Oregon woods---in the interests of pillow tops; Lettle was quietly cutting pic- tures out of an old Weatherstone mag- azine Conditlous were ideal for a congenial confab---when like a bolt out of the blue, word came that Mrs. Enslow's baby had been taken ilL Would Mrs Penfleld come at orient Of course she would.

That cost another seven billions tlon. toward the relief of suffering and In loans to Europe, and nearly fifty starvation and toward putting totter- ing governments on their feet. Half of It was provided by the government through taxation. Half of It was the free wtll contribution of millions of Americans. In other words, for every man. wom- an and child In the United States, Europe has received the direct benefit of $100 during the last four years and eight months. When pathos, sentimentality or self- interest cry for America to rush to the aid of Europe or decry a policy of "isolation" the answer can be taken straight from the books: "Yes, we have no isolationists to- day!" It must be understood that this money is entirely apart from sums spent by America on Its own overseas forces or on the prosecution of the war. It la a debit balance that has billions for our own war effort. But the eleven billion by which rope has benefited since the armstics may be divided under the followU heads: Government credits since ,2.500.000.00. Interest remitted sinca urmisttee, 000,000,000.

At Meacham, Ore., the President and Mrs. Harding were adopted into the Cayuse tribe of Indians. The Initiation was slm- ple and was followed by an Indian dance to the beating of tom-toms and the weird chanting of the squaws and the howling of the feather-bedecked bucks. The experience was hugely en- Joyed by the President and Mrs. Hard- Ing and no less by the Umatllla, Cay- use and Walla Walla Indians who par- ticipated In the powwow and the dance. The Indians wre garbed in all bar- baric splendor. Poker film, a Walla Walls, aged seventy-six, talked and his words were interpreted by Leo Sampson, Cayuse. Cmapine, son af the noted old chief who was on the warpath in the '70s. was presentetL Poker Jim gave the President a full hand of beaded gaunt- lets. V;onderful Pendleton blankets were presented, to Mrs. Harding and Mrs. Work, wife of the s.retaty of the interi,,r. Moreover, President Harding be came a member of the Keep Growing Wiser Order of Hoot Owls. with head- quarters in Portland. Ore. Grand Screech Charles F. Berg, assisted by Hoot Owls George L.

Uncle Sam as an Owner of Coal Mines qlk -OT only has Uncle Sam for I'.| the last four years been sIP . " crating a blg modern federal coal yard in the National Capital, to supply coal to the biggest workshop in the world, which he maln- tains in a hundred or more buildings here, but he also oms considerable coal-produclng property. Practically every one wll be emr- prised to know that L50208 teas of coal have been mined from public do- main leases by e Department of the Interior--the same agency that operates the government fuel yard in Washlngton--slnce the general leas- Ing law went into effect in '1920. These are official figures from the general land office records. Upon these leases the government has collected royaltle averaging 10 cents per ton, or roughly $150,000. But this isn't a circumstance to what the production must be under the leases. A total production of 8,700,000. tons within three years Is required" which will mean mote than 70,000 for Uncle Sam. Leases have been let for coal pro- duction from some 380300 acres of public iand with the proviso that there must be a minimum total an. nual production bf 2,895,825 tons of coal and a required investment of $4,012,8 at the end of the three- year period allowed for the full L- stallatlon of mining macldnery. There is another interesting side to Uncle Sam's coal land holding which was brought out In hearings before the acting soeretary of the interior. Four sections in every township were originally granted to the state of Utal for support of SChoolS, provided they were not known mineral land& A tlon of such land In Carbon vounty, Utah, contains very valuable coal d posits which are being worked by two coal companies.
