In the first plaoe, this was much more the sort of conversatloff which he felt the situation indicated. In the second place he had remembered that thvre was no need for him to sing at "all. He could do that imitation of Frank Tin- ney which had bten such a hit at tile Trinity smoker. He was on safe there. He knew he was good. t ground He clasped the girl te him and kissed her sixteer times. Suddenly, as he released her, the cloud came back into her face. "My angel," he asked solicitously, what's the matter?" "I was thinking of father," she said. The glowing splendor of the morn- InS took on a touch of chill for Sam. "Father !" he said thoughtfully. "Yes, I see what you mean! He will think that we have be*ca a little pre- cipitate, eh? He will require a little time in order to learn to love me, you think?" "He is sure to be pretty angry at first," agreed Billie. "You see I know he has always hoped that I would marry Bream." "Bream ! Bream Mortimer I ,Vhat a silly thing to hope!" "Well, you see, I told you that },h-. Mortimer was father's best friend. They are both over in England now, and are trying to get a house in the country for the summer which we can all share. I rather think the idea is to bring me and Bream closer to- i gether." "How the deuce could that fellow be brought any closer to you? He's like a burr as It is." "'Well that was the idea, I'm sure. Of course I could ne'er look at Bream nOW." "I hate looking at him myself," said Sam feelingly. A group of afllicted persons, bent upon playing with long sticks and bits of wood, now invaded the upper deck. Their weak-minded cries filled the air. Sam and the glrl rose. "Touching on your father once more," he said as they made their way below, "is he a very formidable sort of man?" "He can be a der. But he's rather quick-tempered. You must be very ingratiating." "I will practice It In front of the glass every morning for the rest of the voyage," said Sam. He went down to the stateroom in a mixed mood of elation aml apprehen- sion. He was engaged to the most wonderful girl in the world, but over the horizon loomed the menacing figure of Father. He Wished tie could induce Blllle to allow him to waive the for- reality of thawing Father. Eustace Hignett had apvarently been able to do so. But that experience had pre- sumably engendered a certain caution In her. The Hlgnett fiasco had spoi:efl her for runaway marrtage Well, if it had to be done, it must be done, and that was all there was to It. CHAPTER V GoSd G---d!" cried Eustace Hlg- nett, He stared at the figure which loomed above h'lm in the fading Hght which came through the porthole of the stateroom. The hour was seven- thirty and he had Just woken from a troubled doze, full of strange night- mares, and for the moment he thought that he must still be dreaming, for the figure "before him could have walked straight into any nightmare and no questions asked. Then suddenly he i became aware that It was his cousin, Samuel Marlowe As in the historic case of father in the pigsty, he could tell him by his hat. But why was he looking like that? Was it simply some trick of the ancertaln light, or was his face really black and had his mouth suddenly grouqa to six times Its normal size and become a vivid crimson.* Sam turned. e had been looking at himself In the mirror with a satin- faction which, to the casual observer, his appearance would not have seemed to Justify. Hignett had not been suf- fering from a delusion. His cousi0's face was black; and, (yen as he turned, he gave It a dab with a piece of bnrht cork and made it blacker. "Hullo! You awake?" he said and switched on the light. Eustace Hlgnett shied like a startled horse.

It got about somehow that I was a valuable man and they wouldn't take no." Sam deepened the color of his ears. "As a matter of fact," he said casually, "my fiancee made rather a point of my doing something." A sharp yell from the lower berth proclahned the fact that the signifi- cance of tl)e remark had not been lost ou Eustace. "Your fiancee?" "'The girl I'm enaged to. Didn't I tell you about that? Yes, I'm en- gaged." Eustace sighed heavily. "I feared t3Je worst. Tell me, who is she?" "Didn't I tell you her name, ?,' "No." "Curious! I must have forgotten." He hummed an airy strain as he black- ened the tip of his nose. "It's rather a curious coincidence, really. Her name is Bennett." "She may be a relation." "That's tm]e. Of course, girls do have relations." "What is her first name?" "That is anotimr rather remarkable thing. It's Wilhelmina." "Wllhelmlna '." "Of course, there must be hundreds of girls In the world called Wllhelmina Bennett, but still it Is a colrwldence." "What color is her hair?" demanded Eustace Ilimtt in a hollow voice. "Her hair'. What color Is it?" "Her hair? Now, let me see. You ask me what color Is her hair. Well. you might call it auburn . . . or russet or you might call It Titian. . . ;' "Never mlnd what you might call it. Is it red?" "Red? Why, yes. That is a very goqd description of it. Now that yeu put it to me like that. It is red." "Has she a trick of grabbing at you suddenly when she gets excited, like a kitten with a ball of wool?" "Yes. Yes. she has." Eustace Hlgnett uttered a sharp cry. "Sam," he said, "can you bear a shock?" "I'll have a dash at IL" "Brace up .'" "The girl you are engaged to is the same girl who promised to marry me." "Well, well!" said Sam. There was a silence. . "Awfully sorry, of course, and all that," said Sam. "Don't apologize to me !" said Eus- tace.

'Hullo, Ernest !' 'Hullo, Frank !' Why riot come along?" "The only piano I will ever sit at will be one firmly fixed on a floor that does not heave and wbble under me." "Nonsense! The boat's as steady as a rock now. The sea's like a mill- pond." "Nevertheless, thanking you for the suggestion, no !'" "Oh, well, then I shall flare to get on as best I can with that felh)w Mor- timer. We've been rehearsing all the afternoon and he seems to have the hang of the thing. But he wtm't be really right, lie has no pep, no vhn. Still, If you won't well, ! think I'll be getting along to" his state- room. I told him l would h,ok in for a last rehearsal." The door closed behind Sam, and Eustace llignett, lying on his back. gave himself up to melancholy medita- tion. He was deeply disturbed by his cousin's sad story. He knew wimt it meant being engaged to Wllhelmina B,.nnett. It was like truing taken aloft in a balloon and drop'peal with a thud on the rocks Ills reflections were broken by the abrupt opening of the door. Marlowe rushed in. Eustace peered anxiously out of his berth. There was too much cork on his cousin's face to allow of any real registering of emotion, but he could tell from his manner that all  was not well. "What's the matter?" Sam san on the lounge. "The bounder has qult !" "The bounder? What bounder?" "Ttmre Is only onei Bream Morti- mer. curse him! There may be others whom thoughtless critics rank as bounders, but he is the only man really deserving of the title. He refuses to appear! He has walked out on the act! He has left me flat!

Mustapha Kemal, Dictator of Turkey There are at least four dictators In Europe. Men may disagree as to their comparative power. All men agree that not the least individual and able is Ghazi Mustapha Kernel Pasha of Turkey. Lenin of Russia has Im- posed an autocracy through force and bloodsied. Mussolini of Italy created a personal and political dictatorship, meanwhile dramatizing himself. Kern- al has led a beaten nlitlon to victory, dictated terms to a one-time conquer- or and set up a new and unique sys- tem of administrathm. And unlike Lenin and Mussolini Kernel Pasha is still invested with mystery---xcept to the British in the Dardanelles expedi- tion and to the Greeks whom he drove into the sea. He is president of the Turkish republic. Kernel is nearly six feet tall, with a fine military bearing. His eyes are remarkahle---steely blue, cohl, pene- trating, implacable. He is that rarity aznong Turks--a blood with yellow hair. He has what Americans call "a poker face"; he seldom smiles. He dresses smartly. He knows hoth French and Gernlan. He is an ardent admirer of both Lincoln and Washington. Mrs. Han4man on Woman and Politics Mrs. J. I',oralen tlarrlman, an American woman of wealth and po- sttlon,.has written a book "From Pina- fores to Politics," telling why, after twenty years of activity among poli- ticians, she believes women should enter politics thoroughly and convinc- Ingly and independently. "The woman vote," she believes is something to reckon with and will have to be considered as separate from "the man vote" for some time. But she objects to a separate woman's party. "Women are still separate, not only biologically, which doesn't count for so much in politics, but economi- cally," says Mrs. Harrlman. "They are the vast body of houseworkers, ometimes sweated and sometimes pet- ted. The American wife is supposed to be a member of the great leisure class and I suppose it is true thai more American wives have moge time to waste or to pursue culture than any other people." Mrs. Harrlman says, in opposing a separate women's party: "I dislike very much the sex-conscious bloc that Alice Paul and her party have organized. do not think they can ever be powerful enough on their own to accomplish anything, and I do think they stir up so much antagonism In the men that R 1$ d.'fficult for the rest of us to peacefully negotiate the things we want." mammmm Grant Appointed Director of the Mint Robert J.

He was recommended ,by Secretary Mellon and also had the indorsement of Secretary Work. Mr. Grttnt was born in Plctou county, Nova Scotia, Canada, Nov. 12, 1862. He was educated in the Canadi- an public schools, coming to the Unit- ed States when a young man. In the '80s he was a mining engineer In Col- oredo in the Aspen, Leadvllle and Crip- ple Creek districts and later in Mex- ico. In 1904 and 1905 he was a bull- nees associate of Herbert Hoover, sect. retary of commerce, and represented Hoover in AustraLia as manager of the Cosmopolitan mine there, at the time one of the richest propertles in the world. During the war, when Herbert Hoover was national food admlnlstrat0r, Mr. Grant served as executive manager off the Colorado food board under Thomas B. Stearns, food director for Colorado ! It is understood that the in- fluence of Secretary Hoover had much to do with Mr. Grant's present appoint- ment. Davimn Flies to Pole With Amundsen m Liefftenant Ralph E. Davison of the Naval Air rvlce will participate next summer In Capt.

Lieutenant Davisen will command one of the three turn- )lanes which will make the trip under the leadership of the Norwegian ex. plorer. Lieutenant Davison was selected from more than 30 American naval tviators who volunteered for the ex- pedition, which Is to be transported north to Spltzbergo on shipboard next May, where a balm of operations will be established. A non-stop flight over the Arctic regions is not contemplated. The distance from Spitzbergetr to Alaska is about 2)00 miles and the  flight will be broken into relays. At the Pole a depot of supplies will be es- tablished. The Shenandoah, the navy's biggest dirigtole, may be assigned as relief Ship for the Arctic expedition.
