Turn a chap loose In the meadow of the
world among the flowers that grow there you
say; give him all the time In the world 'till
he's staid (ha) bachelor of thirty and why
should he not find the right blossom for his
buttonhole one that will bloom bravely above
the beat of his heart and never wither until the
frost kills him, too the flower of his heart
until he falls beneath the weight of years? Bp
cause I'll tell you why because when he wan
ders out of the gate of boyhood Into the mead
ows of the world, Love, alias Eros, the trifling
son of the Goddess of Beauty, climbs to his
bhoulders and stays there through all the choos
ing with his fat fingers tight over the youn
chap'a eyes! How can he always choose aright
ib Is stumbling with outspread" arms and
Minded eyes? If he gropes into a pansy-girl
and clutches her tight, when a wlld-rone girl
would have set more beautifully above his heart,
whose fault is It? Violet-girls with -deep eyes
and hearts and earnest thought pansy-glrU
with calling eyes and perky facet and velvety
beauty wild-rose girls with simple hair and
active limbs daisy-girls with baby faces and
modest little tucking In of the chin narclssuii

and a wide, white forehead with sometime a

wax-like sweetness that cloys, exotic, luxurious,

CHAPTER II (Continued.)
On the "To" side, which repre
sented the expenditures, there were very
few entries, but they were interesting.
In th four years the woman had had
four cheap dresses besides her uniforms
and very scant accessories. The last
entry among the receipts was June's $14
under the head of "Tips." On that page
the book showed an Item, "Banked to
the credit of P. Wllkins. $12,000.",
And ,lt belonged to the man, every
peony. If the woman had anything it
was a gift.
A startling thought came to June. Sup
pose she achieved her Independence, sup
pose she turned her own money, so that
she could go to Ned. asking from, him
nothing but love In return for her love,
would he own what she had earned? If
so, what would become of the principle
for which she had run away? She paled
at that thought, and then she laughed,
"fihe did not know the :iw in this matter,
hut she knew Ned. Dear Ned! She hunted
her handkerchief in a hurry.
The arrival of an envelope by met?nger
rciflcied unnecessary the Immediate
need of police aid for tlie Moore family.
With fingers which tmnbled In spite of
his habitual control, the lather oi June
opened the telegram and read this strange
"I am sorry I had certain party tied
and lost In Hunter's woods. Pleane find
him and tell him I .ra sorry. I am go
ing to Jola our darling. I will protect her
tint il we meet again, when all will be
happy. Your faithful MARIE."
New plans were made accordingly.
On the dock against which rocked and
gsted the swift little motorboat Flash
the lonely overcoat and cap pursued their
almost imperceptible tray. A touring car
topped on the. street up the hill.

"It Is cold, my friend. Is it not?" called
Henri, as he rushed forward, bottle in
hand. "Shall we warm ourselves yes T'
"Yep," rolled up the somber voice, with
frosty cordiality, and the neck of the
bottle disappeared In the slit of the over
coat collar.
"Tho motor tender from tho Hilarity-
it is not yet returned, ch?"
"Voila!" Henri is even cheerful as he
races back up the dock. "I shall return,
my friend Monster Ftappe."
As Henri .jumps Into bis car a dim,
fat figure slinks out of 'the shadows and
hops on behind.
Left alone momentarily. June threw
open the door which she had Just locked
and dashed back along the gangway to
ward the pantry. At the end of the pas
sage she found a companlonway which
led her lip to the deck..8h rushed for
ward to the prow, taking In at a glance
that they were far from shore and in the
open water. The distant lights glowed
dully through the mist, but Just ahead
of her, on the port side, bore down the
red and green lights of a tug.
"Ahoy!" ah cried, lifting her hands to
her mouth like a megaphone. "Ahoy!"
she screamed.
Strong arms seised her-the heavy
Jawed officer she had seen as she had
come on board. Two others came running
up, Edwards and Cunningham. Clos be
hind were Tommy Thomas and Mrs. Vil
la rd, ths former laughing, the latter panic
stricken. A handkerchief was pressed
against her mouth, and the tug flashed
It wss Edwards and Cunningham who
dragged June down Into the crimson and
gold Solon, and as June was Jostled tn
the first thing she aw was the dark,
handsome face of Gilbert .Blye! lie was
standing at the portable buffet, quietly
drinking a -glass of wine!
P. Wllkins and wife came running In,
and Edwards, pant'ng, his heavy lips
parted In a half snarl and a half grin,
released his fluid on June.
"Lock her up," he ordered and Joined
Blys at the buffet. Blye lifted his glass,
suavely smiling, as June, now unresist
ing, was led away.
Inside here stateroom June locked her
door and at the same time heard It bolted
from the outside.
On the dock the overcoat and cap
watched the figure of Henri with drowsy
interest, also a short thick figure.
"Bay, what do they wsnt?" the short.
thick figure asked, with stiff lips.
"IHdn't I tell you before to hiker'

terrupted Henri, with ingratiating en
thusiasm. "My friend Monsier Flambeau,

Voila!" Henri wu quite cheerful. "I
shall return again, my friend Frapp."
Henri was just starting his car and the
short, thick figure 'had Just slunk out of
the shadows to hop on behind when the
overcoat and cap sal on the edge of the
dock, with their feet dangling toward
the water.
"Ah!" breathed Henri te ths stiff figure

Wisdom of Fostering finer Possibilities in Children and Encouraging in Them a Spirit of Loving Kindness
(To ii Continued Tomorrow.)
In discussing any question of morals
it Is necessary to start with the under
standing that man Is fundamentally a
beast. This is not to deny that he may
have angelic possi
bilities) are not an
asset upon .which
one can prudently
bank. It Is not in
point to discuss
the question
whether he ac
quired his animal
propensities by the
Darwinian method
or by some other
process equally
mysterious. A 1 1
that we are urging
Is that In the con
dition in which he
enter life he la
practically an ani
mal, just as bears
and wolves are ani
mals, and an undomnst tested animal.
Now the policy that requires to be
pursusd In dealing with the young crea
ture that Is practically an animal, and
only possibly an angel, Is to foster an
gelic possibilities to th point of secur
ing to them the mastery over tho pro
pensities of the other kind, and crowd
down the animal to a state of submis
sion. That la all perfectly clear and
rational. . The Bible teachea the same
thing whea It says, "Keep your body
Now. one of th propensities contained
In our animal endowment Is the disposi
tion to fight. In thst respect we are pre
cisely like cats and dogs. They do not
quarrel because they have anything in
particular to gain by It, but because It Is
their nature to. There la no Immortality
Involved In It In their case, because there
are in them no hlguer propensities of
even a possible kind for the animal dis
position to be submitted to.
As the disposition to fight Is on of th
beastly Ingredients of our nature a part
of man's Inhumanity the eradication of
that disposition Is one of the purposes
which the educstlon of the home, the
school and th church should be mad
to subaervs. There are two practical
ways of compassing jthls, en positive,
th other negative.
Th first Is to foster the finer possi
bilities, the lstent seeds of sweet hu
man sees that com into existence In th
child alongstd of his beastliness, and
cultivate la him a spirit of loving kind
ness. There Is no danger of our fisti
cuffing or bayoneting a person whom
w hav first embraced with bur affection.
Th second Is to discountenance in th
child' or boy any practices or exercises
that will hav a tendency to foster In
him the militant spirit, that Is. to say.
th fighting spirit. There Is only too
much of it In him by nature to make It
necessary to hav It Intensified by train
ing. It la because of the wolf that Is tn
th boy that he had rather drill with a
mm Vet than with a stick, and drilling
with th musket only arouses th wolf.
It I poor consistency to tend a boy te
Sunday school te teach him lit Chris
tian principle of peae. and then a
Monday send him to military aefc)l t
teach him th acta of war aa4 fotsc fca
Mm tb spirit f war.
An exceedingly Interesting exhibition
was recently given in Csrnegle hall by
Genera: McAlpln s Scout. Military drill
forms sa era ntial pan of their disci
pline. The boys dlsplsyrd the excellent
of the training thst their admirable
commander had given them. Among
other exercise, they dragged In a small
cannon, loaded If. fired It, and all that
was necessary to make the performance
complete was to have an enemy In front
of it to be out down by the ball which
was Imaginatively discharged.
Now no one can be at all familiar with
the elementary principles of human nature
and not Understand that by that perform
ance war' was made leas terrible, Indeed
was made aim out fascinating, to the
boys that participated In the perform
ance. It has been said recently that this Is
an Inopportune time to discus such mat
ters because of the excited condition of
the public mind. -It Is the best time In
all the world la discuss them. The time
to talk about Is when people are
Interested In them, and war la Just now
th world's supreme interest.
If the liny could sctuslly witness a bat
tle close at hand and see men shot dead
or run through with bayonets, and their
bodies already dead or perhaps not yet
dead, thrown In heap Into the trenches
in quick and perhaps premature burial,
then ha would understand what war
means and would win a terrified sense
of Its horrow. But It Is another thing
tor him to play war on th ataae or to
read about war In a hlatory where the
terrible details are Invisible to the eye,
and only the Immensity of the occasion
and Its thrilllrg exploits reach his ap
preciation. In a letter written hy David Starr Jor
dan, chancellor of Stanford university, he
rays: "Knforced military training In the
colleges and high schools la a step toward
the abandonment of our best American
traditions. Iet the officers at West
point, Annapolis and Newport do their
best with th tasks assigned to them.
But these are not the tsska of general
education, and they have no natural part
In our training for civil life."
Another authority profoundly committed
to the beet Interests of our civilisation as
secured by -the type of educated
young men Is Dr. John H. Flnley, presi
dent of th university of the state of
New Yoik ind commissioner of of educa
tion, who said in th course of an address
delivered at Cincinnati a week ago, be
fore the National Rducatlonat associa
tion: "It you mean by 'our educational
system' the 'substance of things hoped
for' in a demociacy's highest faith, and
If you mean by 'war' the greatest savg
gamo played under International ruler;
war, whoee Issue la absurdly assumed to
determine relative values of civilisation:
war, that greatest tragedy that would bs
th greatest comedy If It were not trag
edythen I answer, 'No!' "Our educa
tional system,' In Its basic nation-wide
disciplines, In Its earth-wld racial heri
tages, and In its vocational courses,
should not Include those whose special
purpose Is preparation for wat.' "
There I much that can be persuasively
urged as to tha necessity ot being In a
condition to meet and match a national
adversary. But when the strongest word
to that ffect has been spoken It still re
mains true that events which w get
ready for are exceedingly likely to occur.
