It can happen right at home, in our everyday lives, if we'll only stop to think of it." Pauline was employed as a nurse in a Jamestown, It. I., sanitarium. It was a place that took care of people who had nervous disorders and those who were mildly insane. Pauline hesitated a long time before she accepted the position—didn't like the idea of working around among insane people. But the superintendent assured her that there were no dan- gerous lunatics in the place, 60 in the end Pauline took the job, never figuring that that doggone superintendent might not know what he was ta...

If so, we've heard nothing of it,- though daily announcement is be- ing made of markers for other counties. Old Bosque was a far- flung territory soon after the mid- dle of the nineteenth century. She was the mother county for a dozen or more other counties, some of which lie a hundred miles distant from Bosque's present boundaries. It's an interesting historical study to take a Texas almanac and list the other counties that were cx*e- ated from Bosque county. Surely Bosque county's niche in Texas history merits at least one of these markers! Some counties are to get costly monument...

In It are Burton Ramill, millionaire mining magnate; his daughter, L.il- ith; and Vivian Huxby, pilot and mining engineer. Believing him to be only an ignorant prospector, the men offer to make an air trip to Oarth'-s claim, although they refer to his samples of platinum-bearing ore as nearly "worthless.' Lilitli Ramill, product of the jazz age, plainly shows her contempt for Garth. Through Garth's guidance the plane soon reaches the claim site, Huxby and Ramill, after malting several tests, assure Garth his claim la nearly valueless, but to "encour- age" young prospectors they are willing to take a chance in investing a small amount. Sensing treachery ahead, Garth secretly removes a part Ifrom the plane's motor. Huxby and Lilith taunt Garth with his "gulli- bility," but ...

They sense an Intellectual kinship with the honest man who admits he is a bit at a loss to know exactly where we are. "Editors who were used to saying the last word necessary for the ade- quate instruction of their constitu- ents are writing In phrases tempered by a new shyness. Statesmen, teach- - ers, parents, even half-grown chil- dren are no longer laying down their beliefs with a bang. We are all be- coming humble about our opinions.
