It was characteristic of Yorgy Bis chief concern was for her rather than himself. He went to meet her with a heart not untroubled lie was full of doubts As to his ability to Mako any woman Happy. He was so Large and rough. How could he divine and satisfy the needs of this Yount girl s heart Fork dropped from the stage at the old Convent hotel san Augustine. And engaged a room. He washed his face plastered Down his moist red hair Ana struggled into a clean Collar. 1 Hen he sauntered out to the Piazza and tugged out his big Silver watch. Still an hour to wait. He Bethought himself to ask the clerk in order to make sure if the time for the arrival of the Sunset limited waa the same As last month. The next minute he was racing Down the White Adobe Street toward the Southern Pacific depot. The clerk had told him that the running Sce Dulo had been changed and that the Sunset limited had arrived just four hours ago. To discovered her in Tho empty a forlorn Little sleep ing figure of desolation. She had apparently sobbed herself to sleep in sheer physical exhaustion. To Yorky she looked singularly childish and defenceless her Golden crowned head leaning wearily against Tho Wall her Chin Propper in her hand to support her. Despite the crumpled handkerchief shut in her tightly clinched Little hand there were stains of tears on her Cheeks. To reproached Hin self bitterly for the mistake that had left her All these hours a to despair. He telephoned to a livery stable for a cab and returned to the wait ing room to watch Over her. He saw that she was poorly dressed in a cheap Calico and be was glad of it. A promised himself great Delight in pleasing her with pretty things. Through All his tender compassion for her there ran a fierce exultant thrill of Joy. He bad found the face that fitted the indistinct vision of hit dreams.

You must go right to sleep now an rest said Yorky after they had dinner with Tho Porter he accompanied her to the room to had reserved for her at the hotel. He against be it boats. Hew ship Cauxx Natien. To stake in Means Haye been found to make troop transports Ualat Knable by sub Marine according to a statement made by William l. Saunders vice chairman of naval consulting Board in an Addrena at a dinner of the University of Pennsylvania alumni. Saunders said that one of the ships recently commandeered by the government now Lea at an Atlantic port and in Bitch shape that she can not be sunk by an exploding i can conceive of no reason Why this information should be he added. On the contrary i be la Evo it is Well that the enemy May come to realize that the time reached when. American transports Are ready for the transportation of our troops which that enemy cannot sink. This ship May have a Hole 30 or 40 feet in diameter blown in her Side and she will remain afloat. Such a a Hole would Waterloo but one tenth of the honeycombed airtight described in detail the plan to keep ships afloat after they had. Been torpedoed and How it jaad been developed by William p. Don Nelly a new York Marine Engineer working under authorization of the naval consulting Board. Of course it will take some time to equip similarly the Large number of transports we continued Saunders. It is my belief however that nothing will be left undone to safeguard the Large troop contingents to be moved across the Saunders in a statement credited to him last May asserted a solution of the submarine problem had prob ably been found by the Board and in the opinion of the Board members the scheme As approved would end the submarine menace. He did not enter into details. Discussion of tire advices developed is deplored by officials in washing ton. Investigations and experiments have been guarded closely. High officials have been free to assert privately however their belief that the a boats would be checked sufficiently by Early summer to insure a steady flow of american troops and supplies to Europe with few incidents such As that of the tuscan a to be anticipated. Admiral Jellicoe went farther than other officials by predicting the Sun marines would be killed by August. A the same time he warned that heavy ship losses were to be expected up to that time. Yeager with assumed carelessness lingered a moment after the Boj had did so varied i left when of want and thing All chased themselves across his Home from to do is to press this Button ingenuous face Surprise puzzled hero an Tho Bell to will fix of up. Interesting Wai the following interesting Points Are brought out in the january num Ber of the Western review the Soldier has is of coming Home to one Chance of being killed. He has ninety eight chances of re covering from wound to two chances Oil dying. To has Only one Chance in 500 of losing a limb. To will live five years longer be cause of physical training. He is Freer from disease in the army than in civil life. To had better medical care at the front than at Home. In other wars from ten to fifteen men died from Dis ease to one from bullets. In this War one Dies from disease to every ten from bullets this War is less wasteful of life than any other in history. In another portion of Tho journal thin quotation is found the pres ent fighting is not claiming anywhere near the number of dead recorded for the first two years. Most of the wounds sustained in the trenches Are clean and of a nature that a few weeks in the Hospital makes the subject As fit As Ever. But French soldiers have been discharged on account of wounds during the three years of the War. Most of the wounds received fun the trenches Are on Tho top of the head simply Scalp wounds. Practically speaking a wound is either fatal or slight with but few in Between these two sex in still another place the following quotations from an article by Woods Hutchinson appears our armies in Flanders and Northern France last Winter in open trenches in some of the vilest and worst weather troops Ever had to face had less sickness and fewer deaths from pneumonia and other diseases than it used to have in Barracks in times of peace and less than the Gen eral civil population at Home As to venereal disease Tho figures for top British army is France in 1916 were 2.4 per in words the average was no higher than that be Al eved to exist among men of military ago in Timo of no government has published com plete vital statistics since it watered the War nor will any government us til several Jears after its conclusion in the absence of Complete and exact information the Best that we can say is that these statements Are founded upon such figures As Are available and upon the observations and Opin ions of men in Good position to observe they Are probably reasonably stood guesses the reassure relatives and friends the Soldier stands a Good Chance of pacifist sea off for Whon.

Even to Day like Hamlet she is Parley ing with the enemy to secure a peace by even a Hamlet parlayed with his said James m. Beck former assistant at Torney general in an address before new England College men in Boston. Or. Beck continued no one can question that the peace Parley Are actually in Prog Ress. It is True that the responsible diplomats Are not sitting about a common table and within four Walls but in this Day of the Cable and the wireless the proximity of the negotiation is a matter of minor importance. If the great quarrel Between the Central Powers and the remainder of the world shall be compromised by conventional formulas and without punitive Justice then the dead will Bavo died in vain. Such possibility fills men of vision with the greatest concern As to the portentous possibilities of the present peace Parley. I am not questioning the whole hearted purpose of president Wilson to obtain a just and durable peace. His felicitous by phrased messages Are obviously intended to concentrate the Best opinion of the world against the common enemy and Are masterly in their skillful or.
