Said the Spirit to the Body:
Come, let us go adventuring!
There are mountains to be climbed,
There are rivers to be crossed,
On the lakes the winds are blowing,
Our boat we should be rowing,
Where the white capped waves are wildly
Said the Body to the Spirit:
Let us sit beside the fire,
Underneath the whispering pine trees let
us rest.
For the afternoon is waning,
The evening shadows gaining, >
And the sun will soon be sinking in the
Said the Spirit to the Body:
Let us go a wand’ring,
I have heard of a lovely canyon, far away.
Grim, the mountains circle ’round it,
Few, the travelers who have found it,
For it lies beyond the desert, sad and gray.
Said the Body to the Spirit
It is better to be resting,
In our peaceful, quiet home,
Than on dusty deserts trudging—
That yield their secrets grudging—
Or climbing mountains to their icy dome.
Said the Spirit to the Body:
Let us go a treking
To the tundras of the north.
Where the wild geese are resting,
Where the swan and loon are nesting,
And caribou and reindeer forage forth.
Said the Body to the Spirit:
Oh, thou ever restless dreamer,
I cannot venture with you
For I'm growing old and weary
And the prospect’s ever dreary
When I think of things that we were wont
to do
Soon our partnership we’ll sever
I'll not hold you back forever
Then you can see the great adventure
Into endless miles of space
Your unfettered wings can race,
Like light from star to star
But as you joyous go forget not me, I
Just give some kindly thought ~
To the one who with you wrought
And shall, then, be naught but clay.

(Continued from last week.)
He was right. It could not £0 on.
Fay’s tight- lipped gray-haired house-
keeper enlightened him. The house-
keeper whose fifty-odd years had
taught her the wisdom of minding
her own business but who broke such
personal rules for Michael. There
was something about him that made
her think of a beloved son whose
golden eyes had been dimmed in the
now almost forgotten World War.
“I hope you won't think I'm fresh.
Mr. Michael. But it’s because—well,
you remind me of someone, someone
who was very dear to me, that I'm
telling you all this!
And she told him. Told him full
details concerning the forthcoming
elopement between Fay Waring Ben-
nett and the prince who was visiling
Hollywood. She claims, as she spoke,
those golden lights in Michael's eyes
turned black. She also says he did
not utter one astonished word, but
quietly thanked her for her kindness,
and then walked out into the marvel-
ous California sunlight.
He hiked and hiked, unconscious of
the passing hours. Horrible thoughts
raced through his brain. He would
kill Fay. He would murder the
prince. He would—And suddenly he
found himself back in his hotel suite.
A telegram was handed to him. It
was from the head of the life insur-
ance company. Dully he read the
black words:
Am Waiting for Those California
California policies. He
aloud—wild, hysterical laughter.
Well, he would now return to New
York. A failure in every way. A man
who could not get the woman he lov-
ed. A man who could not even insure
one person for a meager five thou-
sand dollars.
He stopped short in his ravings.
The great idea had dawned upon him.
Fav was a double-crosser. Why not
make use of her and secure a life in-
surance policy. Such an action would
not harm the woman. It was merely
a good way for her to save money,
and it might reestablish him with his
by now infuriated employer. One
huge policy was worth more than all
the other fellows‘ conscientious striv-
ing for small amounts. In this man-
ner he could turn the tables on Fay
and never let her know just how bad-
ly she had hurt him. So, with his
heart nearly bursting with emotion,
he joined Fay and the prince at din- :
Michael cleverly played his hand.
He worked on a certain well-known
theory. What women cannot have
they usually want, specially women
like Fay. He showed her the tele-
“I ecrtainly have not done any
buisness,” he explained, trying his
best to look shamefaced. It’s fortun-
-ate they would never give you a po-
licy, or I should have become a pest.”
* “Why can’t I get a policy ?” she de-
manded, her eyes flashing indignant-
“Moral clause. This company is
very particular about whom they in-
sure. They carefully investigate each
applicant’s reputation.”
“Reputation? I like that!” Now
she was furious. “And pray tell me,
Mr. Smart Aleck, what's wrong with
my morals?"
“Nothing that I know of,” he
quick to reply. “But the Com
would be sure to count up all those
past. husbands.”
“ Well, I divorced them, didn’t I?
You just make out a policy for me,
and I dare anyone to refuse !”
That started a heated discussion.
Seemingly reluctant, he allowed Fay
to win. Within two weeks she pos-
sessed a five-hundred-thousand-dollar
policy, and Michael, plus his liberal
commission, departed for New York,
pausing for only a few moments to
leave with the prince two telling
American souvenirs called black eyes.
Somehow he could not say a final
good-by to Fay. He loved her, and
the wound cut deep.
It really is no wonder Bud Nixon
seemed surprised when he rushed for-
ward to greet Michael at the station.
For Michael laughed.- A bitter laugh.
“I've earned that first dollar, Bud
he cried. “And I wish to heaven I had
missed the thrill !”
You probably have heard rumors
concerning the rest of Michael's start-
ling achievements. How during the
short space of one year he wrote
10re insurance policies than anyone
connected with his organization. The
policies were for fabulous sums, and
they said all his accounts were wo-
men. That was why his actions seem-
ed so shameful. He would rush a
girl, make love to her, persuade her
to take out an insurance policy and
when he had pocketed the check for
the first premium, he was on the next
victim, or client, or customer, or
whatever you choose to call her.
He never failed to write a policy—
this trait winning the admiration of
all the men at the insurance office,
who gathered around his desk each
day in order to see what new business
he had conquered. It was his phe-
nomenal ability of invariably urging
the lady to sign on the dotted line
that caused the envious office wit to
dub him, “Insure Mike.” The nick-
name spread like wild-fire. He be-
came ‘Insure Mike” to both friends
and enemies.
Most of his actions were inexcus-
able. The sister episode being about
the worst. It might never have been
considered so terrible if he had not *
gone around saying his pet abomin%-
tion was sister teams, and then after
the affair, or rather affairs, were ov-
er, he should not have insisted upon
asking people a question that sound-
ed like, “What is worse than two sis-
ters?” and when the puzzled listener
inquired, “What ?” it was dreadful of
Michael to go off into wild paroxysms
of laughter and answer, “Three sis-
ters!” :
No one understood his nonsensical
joke, outside of those who knew
about the Sweet sister incident, but
of course there were plenty of ped
ple who chanced to be well acquaint-
ed with those facts. .
To do Michael justice, it must be
admitted that he first took Ardele
Sweet out because she was a superb
dancer. And to him dancing was a
thing apart. As for her mentality,
he rated Ardele with a huge zero.
Ardele Sweet, who performed with
her twin sister Jessica in “The Friv-
olities” Ardele, whom men usually
courted in preference to Jessica.
Michael escorted the prettier twin
on the rounds of the night clubs, and
before Ardele, whose feet moved fast
while her brain virtually stood still,
could quite realize what had trans-
pired, she had allowed Michael to
write her a policy for twenty-five
thousand dollars.
Ardele had been so easy that Mi-
chael could not resist thinking of her
twin. With him thoughts meant ac-
tion, so pretty soon it was Jessica
who became his partner on those
night club dance floors. A thrilled
and flattered Jessica, for it was the
first time in her entire career that
she won a man away from her sis-
ter. Jessica took out a forty-thou-
sand-dollar policy.
This much can be said in defense of
Michael's behavior. He honestly did
not know there was a third sister. He
meant to telephone Jessica. A strange
voice informed him that the twins
were out.
“And who are you?” ventured Mi-
“Their younger sister.”
Needless to add that he nade a
date with her. In a way he was dis-
appointed. The younger sister was
not a good dancer. Yet, she had blue
eyes and red hair. Besides, her figure
was a cute one, and she let him in-
sure her life for the family record-
breaking sum of fifty-thousand dol-
lars. Lucky for the Sweets that their
mother had no more daughters.
It is difficult to say how long such
matters would have continued to
shock the minds and pocketbooks of
decent people, had not Bud Nixon put
a stop to the whole business. At the
time he remained totally unaware
that he played savior to the bank-
accounts of America’s pretty ladies.
He only knew he invited Michael to
a dinner-party.
“An important client of mine is
having some guests. I promised I'd
drag another man along. You would
be doing me a great favor to oblige.”
portant client's living-room, he for-
got about the pretty brunette, about
Bud's qualifications as a pal, about
the insurance business, and for the
first time in many months he also for-
got a little blond lady with purring
manners and a voice like silvery bells.
All Michael could see was a girl, so
clean-cut, so refreshing, that he lost
his poise and barely stammered
through the formal banalities of in-
She wore a plain black velvet din-
ner gown. It had no adornments
whatsoever, and its very simplicity
emphasized her slim figure and
smooth skin. There was something
quite cool about that skin; it seem-
ed so white. Her regal little head
reached past Michael's shoulders.
She was very tall. Her thick straight
black hair was combed in a low coil
that rested on her slender neck. She
had a determined-looking chin. Her
mouth was a trifle too large. A gen-
erous mouth, thought Michael. Her
nose was straight, Grecian. And
when you glanced into her brown
eyes, you knew that here was some-
one who always would give a square
“Your name should be Diana—or
Joan of Arc,” he said, and then grin-
ned with embarrassment, for Michael
suddenly remembered that during the
exciting tumult of introductions he
had missed her name entirely.
“It’s Carlyn—Carlyn Dane.”
Here was no deadly sweet sounds.
‘Her voice was low—husky tones that
held him enthralled.
“What do you do?” he asked, and
subsequently wanted to kick himself.
His brain stood still, he could think
-of nothing to say.
“I try to write——"
A burst of loud laughter, of blaring
jazz music, of shrieking voices rais-
ed in conversation, drowned the rest
of her reply.
They were quickly ushered to din-
ner, and Michael was abruptly icited
‘back to earth. He sat at the Dane
girl's left, an elderly man was seat-
ed by her right. He graduaily began
to notice that all her attention was
centered upon the old compaxion. A
little beast started to prowl around
Michael's brain. A beast, born on the
day Fay Waring Bennett’s house-
keeper spoke her mind. The beast
talked a great deal to the mental Mi-
“Don’t let her fnol you. She's false
like all the rest. Remember how Bud
introduced you, ‘Just a working
friend of mine!” She doesn’t know
who you are, and she’s sure the old
man has money. Don’t get hurt
again, Michael, my boy. Just watch!”
He watched. It was a revelation.
The way this writer girl played up
to her ancient dinner partner.
The old man talked fast and often.
Every minute he leaned close to
Carlyn, patted her hand, and wag-
gishly instructed her to call him by
his first name. He told her lots of
other data. Facts that Michael could
not help overhearing.
“I'm. the greeting-card king of
America.” - The man was actually
serious. Michael groaned. The Dane
girl seemed so interested.
“Yeh. I commenced on nothing,
absolutely nothing. Wrote most of
the verses for the greeting-cards, my-
self. Remind me to send you a few
of the best sellers. Now I have so
much money I don’t know what to do
with it ali. You know, I'm a widow-
er.” He winked rougishly, and be-
came very coy. “Yes, I'm looking
for a young wife. Someone I could
show off. Someone like you, who's
got class!”
Michael could hardly believe his
eyes. The Dane girl seemed all at-
tention. He shuddered. Then she
was just like Fay.
“Sisters under the skin game,” ne
muttered. The monotonous rhythm
of the old man’s voice once more
broke through his thoughts:
“I have one hobby—collecting wild
flowers. Yes, I love them. No, I
don’t dance, I was hurt several years
ago in a taxi accident. It’s difficult
for me to get around. I limp a lit-
tle; not much, you really can’t no-
tice it. I have two cars. I wish you
would let me place one at your dis-
Michael rudely turned his back up-
on the Dane girl. He could not listen
to another word. Later, he discov-
ered that he also could not get her
out of his thoughts. It was dreadful
—to know all women were false, in-
cluding lady authors.
A week went by. A week of try-
ing to forget the brown eyes of
Carlyn Dane, her white skin, her
smooth black hair, that husky voice.
A week of idle loafing and of being
kidded by the boys in the office be-
cause he failed to bring in more poli-

So Michael broke an appointment
with a beautiful prospect and went
‘to dinner. As he drove towards his
destination, martyr-like thoughts ran
him, spoiling his evening just to
please Bud. That little brunette
would surely have come across with a
fat policy too. But Bud was a good
pal, and with one of those I'min-for-it

When Michael telephoned the Dane
girl she seemed glad to hear his voice,
“Certainly, I'd love to talk to you.
Why don’t you come up this even-
So he went to visit Carlyn Dane,
telling himself that he hated hey,
and he was only out for business.
She did not live in an elaborate
apartment. There were no Fay-like
dolls and fancy cushions. Just a
snug place with chairs that were
chairs, not decorations, and sofas
that made you long to sink down,
never wanting to rise again.
It was odd, but Michael Philips,
who had expressly come after an in-
surance policy looked at Carlyn and
completely forgot to talk business.
Indeed, he scarcely said a word. He
felt all hands and feet while he sat
there, wondering how on earth one
girl could be both entertaining and
exquisite. Merely gazing at her, lis-
tening to that voice of hers, made
him feel peaceful, rested. For once
in his life Michael did not even brag
about himself: never mentioned his
fortune, or the insurance pastime.
It was at the very end of the even-
ing that he clasped one of her cool
hands within his own, and asked a
question. A question which had been
haunting him for a week:
“Tell me, why did a girl like you
bother with that old greeting-card
fiend? Does money really mean so
much ?”
“Oh, wasn't he awful? But you
see, I felt it my duty. After all, I
work for my living, and he was a
great prospect. It's good I can’t
annoy you, ‘cause I gather you
haven't any too much money!” And
she smiled. '
“I don’t understand.”
“It’s perfectly clear. I told you
when we were first introduced. I try
to write policies. I'm an insurance

agent. I—"
Carlyn Dane never finished that
sentence. Michael Phillips threw
back his head and laughed. It was
several minutes before he could tell
her why.
The boys at the office were gath-
ered around “Insure Mike's” desk.
They gazed at a new policy. They
were too awed to sneak. At last
one did break the silence.
'S too bad that kid's retiring,
Yuh gotta hand it to him. I'd like
to see my wife give me a policy. Fat
chance, even if she had money. And
on his honeymoon too. One hundred
thousand dollars........ some bride. Jim-
iny cricketts! And he don’t even need
it. Well, them that has gets.”
Of course the boys did not know
that in exchange for Carlyn’s policy,
Michael gave his wife one for five
times that amount.
Thus ended his business career.
Perhaps you are wandering how I
found out so much about Michael.
Bud Nixon was his confidant, and Bud
does happen to be one of my best
friends, but that really is not all

ments he pays and the endearing way

Since more oysters than human be-
ings attend the dinners of the great,
it has occurred to at least one scien-
tist that the private life of these gen-
tle creatures may be a matter of
some public concern.
In a somewhat formal expose of
“The Private Life of the American
Oyster,” Dr. P. S. Galtsoff of the bu-
reau of fisheries credits the oyster
with a sense of taste more refinéd in
certain respects than that of its hu-
man admirers.
“It has been found,” he says “that
the oyster reacts to the application of
quinine and detects this substance in
a concentration four times weaker
than the minimum which can bé no-
ticed as applied to the human tongue.
“Apparently a well-developed sen-
sitivity is a compensation which the
oyster obtained for its loss of power
of locomotion and absence of special
organs of vision and hearing.”
Its ability to protect itself from
poison, he explains, has been measur-
ed by putting different quantities of
potassium salts and other chemicals
in water where it was feeding.
Efficient though they are, however,
the oyster’s organs of sense are few,
being confined to a double row of ten-
tacles or feelers on the edge of each
mantle, the soft layer of membrane
which can be seen covering the crea-
ture when it makes its appearance
on the half shell.
When the shell is open and the oys-
ter is feeding, Doctor Galtsoff re-
lates, the tentacles expand and stick
out into the water, ready to contract
at the first warning of danger
through any mechanical disturbance
or change in the intensity of illumi-
nation of chemical conditions.
As the tentacles draw in the man-
tle contracts, the big muscle which
holds the shells together closes them
and the oyster may—if oysters can—
revel in the sense of security which
man enjoys when shut up in a warm,
cheerful room on a stormy winter
The oyster’s nervous system is a
possession which might be envied by
many a jump dinner guest. It Is so
simple that, no matter what distress-
ing occurrence is forced upon the oys- |
ter’s attention, it always acts in the
same way, shutting out trouble by
closing up the shell and letting’ the

What is probably the most expen-
sive Grange hall ever built in the
United States, to be used exclusively
for Grange purposes, has just been
dedicated at Lakewood, Colorado. It
cost’ $85,000 and is equipped with ev-
ery modern convenience and with up-
to date furnishings. ‘
Besides meeting all Grange needs,
it will be made a genuine community
center, and under. Grange leadership
many welfare projects will be under-
taken. In this expectation a gener-
ous public response backed up the
Grange building effort’ and the fine
new hall was dedicated almost clear
of debt.
One of the curious things about
motor law enforcement is that before
a proposed regulation is enacted into
law, there are always hundreds of
people clamoring for its adoption,
and immediately it becomes a statute,
they and everybody else interested
with the possible exception of the en-
forcement authorities, forget all
about it.
Prior to the enactment of 1927 of
the Pennsylvania vehicle code, there
was considerable agitation, newspa-
per comment and comparison of our
so-called “antiquated methods” with
those of other States all bearing upon
the question of establishing “Thru
Traffic” highways, or as they are
commonly called, “Boulevard Stops.”
This was hailed as a inodern neces-
sity in highway traffic regulation and
the proponents of the measure not
only claimed that it would speed up
traffic on our arterial highways, and
streets, but reduce accidents at inter-
sections to an appreciable degree.
Therefore, the Pennsylvanit vehicle
code, when present:d to the Legisla-
ture, carried a provision of this kind,
permitting the Department of High-
ways to designate certain routes as
“Thru Traffic’ highways, and delegat-
ed the same power to local authori-
ties in cities of the first, second and
third class.
The Highway Department has dene
this, and many cities have taken ad-
vantage of the provision, and un-
doubtedly the measure has to some ex-
tent, accomplished what was claimed
for it.
That the results are not more no-
ticezble, is due primarily to two
causes. First, there seems to be lit-
tle or no disposition on the part of
the motoring public to observe the
“Stop” signs and to come to a full
stop before attempting to enter or
cross a “Thru Highway.” It is a curi-
ous trait that seems to exhibit itself
only when some persons get behind
the wheel of a motor car—they feel
that nothing should impede their
progress, even though it may be
something designed for their -own
safety. Second a similar laxity on the
part of local authorities to enforce
the regulation rigidly. These state-
ments are not made in a critical
spirit, but simply te point out what
might be done in the way of accident '
prevention and reduction if everyone
was seriously interested in eliminat- !
ing accident hazards.
An analysis of accident reports
submitted to the bureau of motor ve-
hicles for the month of January and
February show a total of 236 auto-
mobile accidents at street intersec-
tions, of which fifty-six resulted fa-
tally. At rural intersections, the to-
tal of forty-two accidents, with one
fatality. Of course not all of these
intersections were protected by
“Stop” signs, nor will the mere post-
ing of those signs and enforcement
of the regulation eliminate such acci-
dents, but this does furnish’ a strik-
ing example of the necessity for more
care on the part of motorists at
street and highway intersections.
During the same two months, the
State Highway Patrol reports a total
of 630 arrests and convictions for
failure to observe the “Stop” signs on
“Thru Highways” throughout the
It is not unusual for the careful
motorist,, who, has come to a stop,
and who is guaging his opportunity of
either crossing or turning into the
“Thru Highways,” to be startled by
another car whizzing rapidly past
him without any apparent regard for
his own safety or anyone else's.
It is this carelessness which breeds
contempt and the motoring public
and enforcement authorities bear an
. equal responsibility although it would
seem that the greater burden lies
with the individual motorist.
Those cities which have adopted a
plan of rigid enforcement have ex-
perienced a gratifying reduction in
accidents, and the Department of
Highways so far as State highways
are concerned, will continue its ef-
forts through the State Highway
Patrol to compel observance of the
“Stop” sign.
The threat of a fine is sometimes
not as efficacious as an appeal to rea-
son but it will be well to remember
that the thoughtless motorist, who
fails to stop at an intersection with a
“Thru Highway” subjects himself to
a possible penalty of a ten dollar fine,
or a five-day jail sentence, to say
nothing of the dire and tragic re-
sults if he is involved in an accident.

You will find the oldest law pro-
tecting our bird neighbors in the
Bible. In the twenty-second chapter
of Deuteronomy the Israelites are
forbidden to take a nesting mother
bird when they find her.
“If a bird’s nest chances to be be-
fore thee in the way or in any tree or
on the ground—whether they be
young ones or eggs, thou shalt not
take the dam with the young,” you
may read there.
The Israelites were accustomed to:
catch pigeons, doves, and quail for
food, but even these birds they were
ordered to spare when nesting. You
can understand what a wise law this
was, since it is easy to catch a nest-
ing bird, but the destruction of such
families would soon reduce the num-
ber of birds in the land to nothing.
Today we have laws protecting the
birds in nearly every country and
most boys and girls have learned to
treat these helpful neighbors kindly.
