McMillan.  staffs" ball was the same evening, the  hall was filled.  Mrs, Jobnston opened proceedings  with a few suitable remarks, followed by  O Canada. Both the piano and  eloc ution numbers were well performed  and with a confidence evidenced by the  pupils reflecting much credit on their  teacher, who appears to bave the knack  of understanding individual pupils and  their ability. While it might be a little  invidious to mention two or three pupils  yet one could not help but be impressed  by the two "babies" of the class,  Kathleen Martin and Marylin Warren,  who both performed on the piano.'  Both children showed a real musical  sense of rhythm and time. These two  youngsters of six years also played a  duett together which really would have  been a credit to some of the older  children.-  Mention might also be made of Jimmy  Rogers and Ethel Hendren, both of  whom have had about two months'  tuition at the piano, yet each played a  selection and a duett showing real  ability.  The elocution pupils were each interesting according to their own poenj.  Marylin Warren was pariicularly captivating in her -opinion as to whether  there were real fairies. Dorothea  Powell was amusing in her interpretating  of the girl who was good, working up to  a nice little climax. She also gave  "Tea for a Rabbit  la a clear, <julet way Carolyn Jones  gave a short version of "Jonathan Joe."  Phyllis Wilks was "really clever in her  rendering of "The King's Breakfast," the  selection* -having three .different char-  act'sMicr.-i'fdj^^ somewhat  difficult number for aVsmall" pupil "like*  Phyllis.; For;-ah. encore she gave the  hunt for the "Missing Mouse." *.,.���������'.  The two comedians v of the eveni ng  were Louis Millin ahd Louis Johnston.  The former gave a graphic and humorous descripton of bow the elephant got  his trunk. The latter gave, a story on  the type of movie he preferred, In a  humerous number these two teamed  together splendidly, bringing the house  down with theuCJokes.  The choir was enjoyed by all and their  singing gave that touch of variety to tbe  evening They sang Tennyson's "Sweet  and Low." "Early One Morning," "A  laughing Song," and "In a Gipsy Tearoom," which was dramatized, were  really effective and picturesque. Carolyn  Jones and Margaret Donaldson were the  gipsy waitresses in costume, and Donald  Weir and Jean Pridham, in tea room and  centre of romance. Mrs. Fraser received  congratulations on tho success of the  choir, the children having no knowledge  of vocal music whatever other than that  received at practices under their leader.  The following contributed piano selections and duetts: Kathleen Martin.  Marylin Warren^ Jimmy Rogers,. Ethel  Hendren, Patsy Forbes, Lillian Hendren,  Audrey Cooper, Margaret Henderson.  Henry LeMoigne, Marguerite Grant and  Edith Johnston as well as Tom and  Louis Johnston. Marguerite Grant also  sang, "When I leave the World Behind,"  which was encored.

It  is a Rugosa Hybrid, Conrad F.  Meyer, and may be bought from  any nursery at the coast.

Play was slow and rough, with a  lot  of  crabbing  about the refereeing.   In the  first game Creston  Motors came pretty  close to   upsetting  the unbeaten  High  School girls, wholiad but a one point  margin on  the garage hands, the final  score  standing  12-11.   Imperial  Groceteria trimmed High School  boys.37-20,  and     Cardinals   scored   over  unbeaten  Loallo squad 35-26.  In the first game the 12-11 score did  not at all indicate the play AH t he way  througn it was poor basketball with no  pep whatever. Motors had the best of  game but were decidedly off in their  shooting. Liz Armitage was the only  one of the losers who could find the  basket. BroweHand VanAckeren played fine games, Kate Payne did some  creditable guarding, holding Ruby  Palmer down to one basket. The High  School scoring was more evenly divided  than Motors. Ruth Hare seemed to  think she plays a better game on the  forward line than atBguard.    The teams:  Creston Motors���������Avery, Browell 1,  Armitage 10, D. MacDonald. VanAckeren, Wightman, K.

The second game waa disappointing so  far as Groceteria was concerned. There  was too much conceit on their own  individual shooting. Downes had a  wonderful night scoring 14 of the team's  37 points. Scoring was evenly divided,  but players were too much  inclined to  on^  IT'S not enough just to stand back and admire the smart new beauty of  McLaiighlm-Buick for 1936.

The two league leaders in the men's  sections, Loallo and Cardinals, put up  the best game of the evening, with the  latter upsetting the fruit packers and  going into a tie for the league leadership.

He must have been reached���������  threatened or persuaded from his  true conviction. Only yesterday the  man had been as enthusiastic as  Link!  At once his mind began to build  on this thought. Roper had always  opposed the thing, until yesterday.  His seeming friendliness then was  the mask of his ruse. That was clear  enough now. Perhaps he feared that  his" leadership, fiis grip on local cattlemen, was at stake. If Link put  this thing into operation he, not Kilgo, would become the chief to whom  weaker men looked for guidance.  Roper's power would be gone.  Yes, that must be it. Kilgo used  this means to kill forever talk of  irrigation, ia which he did not believe  himself.

This was his chance, his long-  sought opportunity to win the ranchers to his views! He had prepared  for this moment for a year. Enthusiasm swept over him as it always did  when he pondered the new means of  improving the range. His pulse sped  faster, and standing at full height before them, he chose his words with  care.

With eagerness he  he tried hard to mask, Fleming  watched the men react.  "Reckon Soak knows plenty about  engineerin', at that," Mulrooney conceded.  ''Buzz, will yuh go along on whatever we decide? How about you,  Benson? All right, Link, let's hear  the facts."  The Star Loop owner realized* that  perhaps he had misjudged Kilgo. He  was being helpful now, and seemed  really anxious to know more about  irrigation, which he had so derisively  opposed during the last year. Yes,  Link  felt he had  done  the man  an  and nodded. "How much would a  proposition like this cost ns?" Link  went on, drawing him out.  The engineer rubbed his reddish  nose as he studied the floor in front  of him. "About thirty-five or forty  thousand dollars for a starter. You  could build part and operate it while  yuh raise more money to go-on with  the scheme.'*  "Raise more money'n that? What  do yuh mean? What's the total?"  Howland demanded.  "Around sixty thousand."  Several men gasped. "If you want  your land to increase in value it'll  take some investment, of course. But  if we all chip in it won't be so bad.  The thing is sure to be worth while,"  argued Fleming.  There was a slight pause. "That's  the point," Roper drawled slowly.  "Will it be worth while? If it will,  I've about made up my mind to go  in it.    How about you boys?"  He gazed from face to face. Several men frowned "hesitantly, then  nodded. If there were any who distrusted Kilgo's leadership, they feared to oppose it. A few looked glum  and several appeared reluctant. But  the Box 50 owner's declaration applied to all of them. As usual, they  would do what he did, follow him  like sheep.  "That's settled then. Me���������I'm  willin', like you boys, to gamble on  Torney's say-so. Should we go ahead  with irrigation or stay out? That's  the thing in a nutshell. Ain't it,  Link?"  "Exactly. Now, Soak," he went  on, striving to keep triumph out of  his voice, "how about it?"  Torney swallowed hard. He cast a  furtive, pleading look at Fleming.  His bleary gaze swerved, to hold as if  riveted on Kilgo and the cold-eyed  Jackpot Mell as he answered in his  husky, half-audible whisper.  "You could build dams and raise  alfalfa���������sure. But it'd be a crazy  fool tiling to do.    Irrigation sounds  There was a stir in the crowd,  "Huh!" Seth:Howland grunted, "reckon that's settled. This waterin' business ain't any better than I thought."  "Hold on, boys!" Link looked  about for Torney, but" realized that  Soak had shambled quickly off during  the taut, astonished silence. He  cleared his throat scarcely knowing  what he could say to hold them, to  get new consideration of this matter on which he was so earnestly  convinced.  Then ��������� sudden anger waved over  him, and with both fists clenched  until the knuckles showed white, he  spoke in a low, intense tone. "Somebody's tampered "with Torney. That  wasn't his real opinion! Why, he's  told me a hundred times irrigation  would do wonders for us all. We've  worked on this thing, drawn up  blueprints, even. Somebody influenced Soak, made him say what he  did!" he cried insistently. "I tell you  men you're going to regret it if you  don't irrigate!"

Turning, he beckoned to Torney. "Come on up here and  tell us about it, Soak," he invited as  casually as he could manage. "You're  the man knows about waterin* land.  We want your opinion."  All eyes watched the ragged, unkempt figure of thc saloon hanger-on  rise from his chair and bogin to  shuffle forward in his furtive, hangdog way. Vague apprehension made  Link frown as he saw that Soak was  the worse for a recent drinking bout,  though ho had promised earnestly to  remain sober for this meeting. His  oyos wero lustreless and his whole  mien that of a spineless barfly.  However ��������� Ploming shrugged ��������� it  was merely Torney's endorsement as  a civil engineer that was needed to  clinch tho support of Boone County  ranchers. He appeared sufficiently  In control of his sonnes to give that.  Pshaw, what damage could ho do,  ovon in his present condition?  "What's your idea on this?" Link  asked. "Could wo build an Irrigation plant hore?"  Tho man wot his lipa while Ihj  blinked soir-coiiHciouHly, "Reckon  you can' build it anywhere you  want:."  1 coper grinned  at hi in  aecretlvoly,  all right, but it's nothing but a newfangled way to waste money.  "Roper's said all along this ain't  any good," he went on hurriedly.  "My advice to you men is to stick  to Roper���������then, yo'ro safe. Why, I  woudn't give two cents for all tho  irrigation dams an' ditches in tho  United States.  CHAPTER  II.  Silence fell like tv blanket over  tho meeting of cattlemen. Fleming's  jaw sagged, and his stunned amazement was mirrored on ovory face Jn  tho throng. For everyone, of courso-i  had fully expected Torney to givo  emphatic approval. Why, tho ranchers who stood blinking before him  had been almost won over! Had it  not boon for this sudden reversal,  coming with the unexpectodness of a  shot in the dark, the irrigation  schomo would proceed to organization with all Boono County backing  it.  All oyos ii^ced on Link. Because  he was the originator and ardent ad-  vocato of tho plan, his reaction was  of prime Interest. While ho stood  with an Incredulous, dismayed expression on hlfi tanned face, Roper  Kilgo glanced again At Jackpot Moll.

Advance In Eye Surgery  Success Through Practice Of Keratoplasty Is Reported  New achievements in eye surgery  through the comparatively little  known practice of keratoplasty, the  science of transplanting the transparent portion of the eye front to  Restore vision and perspective, were  reported by the New York Academy  of Medicine.  Just recently, it was learned, the  transplanting of the cornea from the  eye of one species of animal to the  eye of an animal of another species���������  as from a kitten to a dog, and vice  versa���������was carried out successfully  for the first time.  The possibilities are regarded with  much significance. In the human  field, two uncommon successes have  just been revealed.  One is the case of Freeman Hall,  of Iowa, who -Jome months ago underwent an operation at the hands of  Dr. Ramon Castroviejo, an authority  on keratoplasty, to restore to one eye  vision lost in an industrial accident  and threatening him with complete  .blindness.  Hall has just been discharged from  Columbia Medical centre; able to see  large objects a yard away and able  again to go unaided in thc world.  Tho operations���������of which there  woi-e two���������consisted of transplanting  in Hall's damaged eye a portion of  the cornea of a new born baby, allowing it to grow in place of tho damaged portion cut away.  Tho second succossful case reported to the Academy of Modicino was  tho restoration of vision to a scientist. A laboratory accident destroyed his vision entirely, scarring tho  windows of thc oyo, and necessitating a double transplantation. He is  now able to see sufficiently woll to  go unaided.  "Silt this I say brethren, the time ia  short,    i Corinthians 7:29.  I  sometimes feel the thread of  life is slender,  And soon with me the labor will  ,    be -wrought;  Then grows my heart to other  hearts more tender.  The time is short.  You who are letting miserable misunderstandings run on from year to  year, meaning to clear them up some  day; you who are keeping wretched  quarrels  alive  because   you   cannot  make up your mind that this is the  day to sacrifice your  pride  and  kill  them; you who are passing men sullenly on the street, not speaking to  them out of some silly spite, and yet  knowing it would fill   you   with   remorse if you heard that one of them  were   dead   tomorrow  morning; you  who are letting your neighbor starve  till you hear he is dying of starvation,   or  letting  your  friend's  heart  ache for a word   of  appreciation or  sympathy which  you  mean  to  give  him  some  day���������if   you   could   only  know  and see all of a sudden   that  the time is short, how it would break  the spell.   How you would go and do  instantly that which you might never  have another chance to do.  Montreal's Dog Population  Montreal's dog population Is growing in leaps and bounds. Figures released by F.
