Vastly superior In numbers and equipment to ttre Amer-ican forces which opposed them, Van Hassek's troops pushed relentlessly for-ward. The U. S. army was not pre- - INSTALLIYIENT NINETEEN pared for this sudden attack, and could only retreat in the face of overwhelming force. Expeditionary forces set sail from both the Mediterranean and the Far East. The V. S. Pacific Beet began the long trip around Cape Horn to protect the Atlantic seaboard when the Panama Canal was destroyed by dynamite lad en ships. Aided by a heavy fog, troops from the Orient established bridgeheads on the Pacific Coast. Intelligence Off-icer Benning was assigned the grim task of reporting developments to bis su-perior, Colonel Flag will, who was sta-tioned In Washington. Now continue with the story. "Very good," he said. "This is just what I've been waiting tor my army is itching to jump off." From the distance heavy artillery grumbled at the dawn, its vibra-tions tossed from mountain to moun-tain in a dull, ominous monotone of sound. In front of them the invader held the superiority of strength in the present moment But Van Hassek's air force no longer commanded the skies and his espionage system east of the Cascades and Rockies had been snuffed out by firing squads. Benning worked feverishly to ac-quaint himself with the intimate de-tails of enemy strength, morale, and dispositions. In five days a million men would be ready to attack. Be-hind that mighty cavalcade of trained fighting men, another n were in the final stages of seasoning for battle, and could be pushed forward when the need for them arrived. ' in the diplomatic pouch and was shot here from Washington by air courier, it may have some impor-tance." Benning slit the envelope open with a paper-knif- A message on a single slip of paper, which bore no signature, read: "Mon Capitaine, I presume you may know already that M. Bravot is in your country under masquer-ade in the hope of redeeming him-self in Van Hassek's favor." Benning passed the note to Gen-eral Flagwill and said, with a thoughtful smile: "That, note from our little French girl startles me, sir. Rather a coincidence to re-ceive this just when Bravot has been on my mind today. I've had a hunch, the fellow might be around somewhere." Flagwill stood up and took from the pocket of his coat a pair of sil-ver oak leaves. He handed them to Benning and said: "Here's your new insignia of rank. Colonel, with my affectionate best wishes." Shortly before nine o'clock, Ben-ning wound his way in Flagwill's sedan through the endless troop con-voys to the landing-fiel- In his dis-patch case were the secret orders that would put Holling's Fourth Army into the attack. Four planes were lined up at the field to carry as many field-offic- couriers with orders that would put the group of four field armies into action. Benning' s pilot, stiff and erect at attention beside his fuselage, salut-ed punctiliously. In his present pre-occupation it was only Benning's long habit of sharp observation that picked up the minor inconsistency of a pilot with goggles fixed over his eyes before he climbed to the cockpit. As Benning searched the pilot, he saw the officer's body stiffen. Ben-ning's hand drove to his holstered service pistol as he picked out in the moonlight his fellow's profile. The masquerader flashed into action at the same instant With swift, even deliberation Benning leveled his weapon and pressed the trigger. Bravot sank to the ground. Pilots and ground crew rushed up. Benning leaned over the fallen man and stripped off the goggles. Floodlights were switched on, a hur-ried search made for Captain Trench, pilot of the plane. Trench's body was found in the shadow of a near-b- y hangar, a knife thrust through his heart. Benning hastily searched Bravot's uniform. In a canvas dispatch case he found cleverly counterfeited or-ders for a prompt withdrawal of three divisions from an important salient in enemy lines east of Sac-ramento. In the small hours of the morning, Benning's plane put him down at Carson City. A military automo-bile took him north around Lake Ta-ho-thence west into the slopes of the Sierras. Columns plodded on. silent shad-ows in the night, an endless cara-van of men moving to the front. Daybreak was close at hand when he reached the Fourth Army's ad-vance command post. The army commander took the dispatch from Benning. broke the seal, and read with a visible tighten-ing of jaws. The Fourth Army was shaping it-self to attack to the south and west Whatever the cost it was to push its way past Sacramento and cut the Van Hassek forces in twain. Simul-taneously the First, Second, and Fifth Armies would press forward with a vigor that would prevent Van Hassek from centering his reserves against the Fourth. Upon the ad-vantages of the first few weeks of action would depend the final massed attacks that were aimed to sweep the Invader into the Pacific. Dawn of the day of attack came with a roar of artillery that shook the skies down a front vowed that not even the Argonne witnessed such volcanic wrath of artillery. Light, medium, and heavy artillery pound-ed the Van Hassek trenches for an hour and in its wake came the in-fantry waves pushing relentlessly ahead in the first red welter of the tortuous miles to the sea. On a day, after crimson weeks, that Benning flew in reconnaissance over Sacramentci the first Ameri-can waves were at last on the edge of the city. A heavy pall of smoke told that the invader had abandoned the city in flames, indication that he meant to hold farther to the west rather than trust here to counter-attacks. That told Benning, too, that the Van Hassek lines to the north and south would be drawn back. Benning's pulse surged as he viewed from the skies heavy enemy columns marching to the west from Sacramento to take up some new strategic disposition. The spectacle seemed to vitalize Hague's prophe-cy, bring nearer the day of fulfill-ment. Dark months lay ahead; many, many men yet must die, and the country's stamina would be tested to the last fiber of its strength. But for Benning there were no doubts. The dawn would come, that glorious dawn of the day when he had vowed for himself a glorious adventure. On that day he meant to wing his way to the north again whence had come those fierce shadows in the fog. There he would see their sur-vivors as they melted back into the Pacific before the mighty vengeance of our massed valor. THE END w CHAPTER XX Continued Benning took off to the east in late afternoon. He decided on Boise as the point of vantage from which to observe final developments in the occupation of the Pacific coast There he would find no diffi-culty in making his daily wire re-ports to Flagwill. Enemy divisions had landed at the mouth of the Columbia River on the Oregon coast, taken the antiquated coast forts from the rear with a few platoons of infantry, and were proceeding up the river toward Port-land. A submarine base was report-ed established at Tongue Point at the mouth of the Columbia. Other invader divisions had land-ed on the undefended coast north of San Francisco and were march-ing into the Sacramento Valley. Van Hassek's Guaymas motorized col-umns had taken Los Angeles and were well north toward San Fran-cisco to effect a junction with their Oriental allies. By tomorrow all coast naval bases would be in the hands of the enemy. CHAPTER XXI Each night for a week past, Ben-ning had gone to sleep with a joy-ous, rhythmic throbbing In his brain, the echo of what to him was a glo-rious music. It was the music of marching feet and of rolling trains and caissons, music that conjured up visions of a great day yet to come. What time he could find to himself away from his duties at GHQ of late afternoons, he spent on the roads at the edge of Salt Lake listen-ing to that same refrain as it beat from the heavy field shoes of march-ing infantry on their way to the westward trains. A beautiful sight were those bronzed, strong bodies of men who marched with slanted muskets or sat upright in trucks behind their rolling caissons. They showed their long hard months of training, these rugged youngsters; and their faces were gravely radiant with a sol-dier's high morale as they faced the west at last on the great adventure. Texas and the Pacific states had suffered unspeakable cruelties and hardships under the heavy heels of the invader. What wealth they had was stripped to the bone, what en-ergies they had were harnessed against their own country to aid their armed oppressors. There had been those months of a reign of terror when cities within range of the Atlantic were shelled. Bombers rained the country's great cities with death, carrying their as-saults in the dark of the night far in-land to such cities as Chicago and St. Louis, Cleveland, Detroit, Cin-cinnati, Indianapolis. Then had come the Van Hassek demand. President Tannard him-self had insisted that Van Hassek be allowed to present to the whole country his terms of peace. Over all the networks, Van Hassek had spoken for the Coalition Powers. Peace could he had at the price of Alaska, Hawaii, the right of un-restricted immigration, renunciation of the Monroe Doctrine, internation-alization of the Panama Canal. Tannard's voice came ringing back now in Benning's memory. An answer to go down in history. "The United States asks no terms. We mean to destroy the armies that have invaded our shores and then we will hold to an accounting those predatory powers that are responsi-ble for international brigandage. That is our last word to our ene-mies, until you come before us on your knees in the humility of utter defeat!" There had been glorious days as well, as the months drifted by. There had been that day of two months ago when the Third Army, reorganized, reinforced, and invinci-ble, crashed down across Texas to drive the invader south of the Rio Grande. Behind the passes of the Rockies there was formed this great army whose fighting reserves now marched into the west. Long, pa-tient months this had taken, months that had tried the courage and re-sources of the country. Benning turned from his reflec-tions to the realities of headquar-ters. Dusk was falling, the skies were filling with planes, planes that pointed their noses to the west. The vast caravan of men and guns moved on in its endless rhythm as it emptied the huge training camps of the Salt Lake Valley of their n men. At headquarters he checked his personal effects, musette bag. belt and pistol, map-cas-raincoat, steel helmet. The buzzer from Flagwill's desk rang at eight o'clock. Flagwill was now a two-st-general with the assignment of chief of staff of the western group of field armies. "Smells to me like a crush note," Flagwill said, sniffing at a small lin-en envelope and handing it to Ben-ning. "But since it came from Paris Weather, and Its Relation To Behavior By DR. JAMES W.

At the last meeting of the Section on Nervous and Mental Dis-eases of the American Medical As-sociation, Doctors William F. Peter-sen, Chicago, and Hans H. Reese, Madison, Wis., stated that the psy-chotic (strange behavior) patient lives in an atmosphere and that at-mosphere in this region of the world varies tremendously from day to day. While every healthy normal in-dividual is affected by weather changes, these nervous or psychotic individuals are more, affected, due to the fact that they have not the nervous "balance" of those who are normal. When Certain Types Are Affected. The individual of normal build--not stocky nor slender is no-- much affected by the weather. Also, the stocky individual when he is young is not much affected. On the other hand, in the slender individual there are periods of elation and depres-sion. When the blood becomes less al-kaline (nearer an acid condition) the thin nervous individual, with the blood and tissues less alkaline, be-comes blue, dep.re.ss.ed and irritable. Removing Warts On Soles of Feet WHEN we see an individual carefully, perhaps with one foot turned slightly out-wards or inwards, or a slight limp is noticeable, it is due, in many cases, not to arthritis or to a fallen arch, but to one or more tiny warts buried deep in some callous. It is only when cutting down on the cal-lous that small reddish or brown-ish black dots may be seen. These dots are really tiny blood vessels. For the past few years, radium and has been considered the best method of treatment. How-ever, Drs. J. H. Marks and C. C. Franseen, Boston, in New England Journal of Medicine, state that while this is the best method of removal, there are some cases in which the after effects of this treatment are more or less serious. In a series of 15 cases treated by 10 showed a complete cure, one re-quired removal of toe by surgery, one still had a remnant of the wart and three failed to obtain a cure but were later cured by electricity. Of six patients treated by after failure by use of radium, only two obtained satisfactory results, one had to have toe removed and three required surgical treatment to obtain results. "If a single radiation treatment fails to cure the method should be discontinued," they report. Electro-dessicatio-when properly carried out, gives, excellent results. The absence of late after effects and the certainty of sure removal of the wart if done under a local anes-thetic, easily make up for the slight immediate discomfort. In all cases in which radium has failed, n has succeeded in remov-ing the wart." The lesson, then, is that treatment by use of electricity under a local anesthetic is method of choice when radium and have failed. QUESTION BOX Q. What causes my nose to swell and get red? A.

Some people turn conversation into a debate. While the other person is talking, the debater is not listening, but thinking up something in support of his own opinion. When such a conversation is over, he is more thoroughly convinced that he him-self is right. As Men Are Born Some men were born for great things, some were born for small. But some it is not recorded why they were born at all. W. Carle-to- Circumnavigation as Done By Young Naval Officer A young naval officer whose marks in navigation had not been all that might have been desired, was set to "shooting the sun" to determine the ship's position. The vessel was somewhere west of Penzance. After a while the junior delivered the result of his calculations. Shortly afterwards, the captain sent for him. "Young man," he " said, seriously, "remove your cap. We are now on a hallowed spot." n "Beg your pardon, sir?" "Yes, sir," said the captain. "If you f have calculated accurately, we are 1 now right smack in the middle of 1 Westminster Abbey." Rival Failings Do you wish to find out a per-son's weak points?
