THE END OF THE WAR. By Walter ' E.

t This book is based upon the as

own and can thus exert a decisive in
fluence upon the peace and upon the
diplomacy that leads to peace. ' It if
an appeal to America to assume lead
ership, in that diplomacy, to eliminate
imperialistic elements from the de
riiands of our allies and to attempt
a settlement based on internationalism.
How to make the most of your op
portunities, how to achieve the fullest
measure of development this is the
subject of Dr. Grimshaw's book. The
author does not, as do so many writ
ers; on this topic, waste words in
beautiful generalities. He is specific
and" practical, aiming to show the stu
dent the way to success in business,
in society and in character develop

By Daddy-"The Mad Giant"
A complete, new adventure each week,
beginning Monday and ending Saturday.
The Giant Get a Docking.
(Previous chapters have told how Peggy
and the King of the Wild Geeae plotted to
kidnap the Giant of the woods and banish
him to a lonely Island In Lake superior,
the geese carrying him there In hia ham
mock tn which he lias been captured.)
THE Giant of the Woods as "he
found himself borne upward by
the army pf wild geese and birds
grew dumb with astonishment.'- He
didn't know whether he was awake
or in a horrible nightmare.'
When he got over his first amaze
ment, however, his tongue gradually
"Well, of all the geewhillicker
manifestations of eccentric phenom
ena this is plumb sure the geewhil
lickercst," he muttered savagely.
Peggy., who was following the feath
ered kidnapers in her airplane, had
never heard such language as this be
fore. It sounded to her like talk for
which bad boys get their mouths
washed out with soap and water.
"You stop that swearing this in
stant 1" she shouted.
The Giant was more astonished
than ever to hear a voice away up
there in ti.e air. He squirmed about
in the hammock trying to see her.
but she kept behind him out of
"Who in thunderation are you?"
he cried. "And what's the meaning
of the fantastic phantasmagoria?"
"You ought to be spanked for talk
ing like that," warned Peggy, shout
ing loudly to make- herself heard
above the noise made by the flutter
"I'll be flabbergasted, masticated,
assimilated, ramificated if I can com
prehend this rampantly freakish idio
syncrasy," gasped the Giant, still
trying to twist about so he could sec
She didn't know what to do. Such
talk must be stopped at once. It
didn't seem at all proper to her, par
ticularly away up there in the pure
clean air. She happened to look
down. They vere flying over a large
lake. This gave her an idea. In a
book she had read how long, long
ago the people used to curb the
tongues of scolding, nagging women
by fastening the naggers in ducking
stools and dousing them in ponds un
til they promised to nag no more.
That's what she would do to the

cried to the king of the wild geese.

Crippled French Soldiers
Employed Making Toys
Toy malang is one of the vocations
encouraged in the re-education for
war cripples in France.
"The Ecole Joffre is situated in the
city of Lyons, and now specializes in
commercial training for the one
armed and in the manufacture of
toys," says Grace S. Harper, in .zr
recent booklet. "Toy making is be
ing studied here with serious pur
pose. A beginning has been made
in the wholesale manufacture of toys
on the factory system by which the
making of separate parts is assigned
to the mutiles, whose physical han
dicaps allow for easy operation of

expert is constantly experimenting on
new models for manufacture. When

Down swooped the fying army .0
suddenly that Peggy saw the Giant
gasp as one docs when an elevator
drops too fast. He looked over the
edge of the hammock and saw himself
plunging toward the lake. At that
he let out such a howl that Peggy
was struck with a pang of pity. Per
haps she wouldn't need to duck him
But she was too late to stop the
eager birds. They were keen to give
the Giant a bath, and down he went
with a great splash.
As the birds rose again, the Giant
came flopping and strangling, looking
all the world like a big fish caught in
a net. He coughed out both water
and words, the later sounding to
Peggy like "Pestiferous piscatorial
"Down again!" cried Tcggy sternly,
and the delighted birds soused him
once more, letting him stay under so
long that Peggy was beginning to
grow anxious when he rose to the sur
face gasping, thrashing, shivering and
shaking. He looked so funny that
The Giant heard the laugh and
opened his mouth to say something.
Before he could speak the Birds
ducked him again and then again.
This time the Giant was so full of
water when he arose that he couldn't
"Will vou promise to be good?"
shouted Peggy. The Giant hastily
nodded as he coughed and spluttered.
"And not use such words again?" she
continued. Once more the Giant nod
ded. He was now very meek. More
over, he was a great deal cleaner than
before his bath. Peggy was astonished
in the change. A whole lot of his bad
looks seemed to be washed away.
The Wild Geese were now honking
their traveling cry.
The King shouted goodby to Peggy.
"Come and wsit us injhe Northland,
Princess," he cried. "Cast off every
body! We're on our way!"
The Birds fluttered out of the way,
and the Wild Geese stretched out in
V-shaped lines, with the King at the
head. They were all flying strongly
and the Giant seemed no burden to
"Goodby, Wild Geese! Goodby,
Giant! Pleasant voyage to you!"
shouted Peggy to them.
As the Wild Geese mounted higher
and higher and grew fainter and
fainter in the distance, with the Giant
still thrashing about in his hammock,
the Birds and Peggy returned to the
clearing for a happy jollification. The
Birds sang and danced in their joy,
and Peggy, forgetting her princely
dignity, led in the frolic.
In the midst of their celebration
Bob Olink stumbled into one of the
Giant's old snares and was caught.
Peggy ran to release him. cutting him
free with the Giant's knife.
As she did so a chilling fear struck
her heart. She had just remembered
that the Wild Geese, tied fast to the
Giant's hammock, had no way of free
ing themselves at their journey's end.
They would fly until exhausted and
then the Giant would easily take them
prisoner, killing them at his leisure.
Oh, why hadn't I thought of this
before I Through her hastiness she
had sent the brave Wild Geese to cer
tain death. Was it too late to save
Grasping her hatpin javelin, and not
waiting even to tell the Birds what
the matter was, she ran to the air
plane. In a moment she was in
desperatte chase afur the vanishing
Wild Geese and the kidnapped Giant.
(Tomorrow's chapter will tell of Peggy's
swift flight after the Wild C.eese and of
the strange, thrilling end of her pursuit.)
