table Compound a trial after all the evidence that is con-
tinually being published, which proves beyond contradic-

ing among women than any other one medicine in the world?
We have published in the newspapers of the United States
more genuine testimonial letters than have ever been pub-

Warrington turns the hose on Craig. He
tells Ela that he Is a man under a cloud
and to be avoided, but Elsa refuses. She
gets the cut direct from society passen-
For years Martha had discharged her
duties, if mechanically yet with a
sense of pleasure and serenity. At
this moment she was as one pushed
unexpectedly to the brink of a preci-
pice, over which the slightest misstep
would topple her. The world was out
"I wish we had gone to Italy," she
"It would not have served my pur-
pose in the least. I should have been
dancing and playing bridge and going
to operas. I should have had no time
"Thinking!" Martha elevated her
brows with an air that implied that
she greatly doubted this statement.
"Yes, thinking. It is not necessary
that I should mope and shut myself up
in a cell, Martha, In order to think. I
have finally come to the end of my
doubts, If that will gratfy you. From
now on you may rely upon one thinSg
to a certainty."
Martha hesitated to put the ques-
"I am not going to marry Arthur.
He is charming, graceful, accom-
plished; but I want a man. I should
not be happy with him. I can twist
him too easily around my finger. I ad.
mit that he exercises over me a cer.
tain indefinable fascination; but when
he is out of sight it amounts to the
sum of all this doddering and doubt-
ing. It is probable that I shall make
an admirable old maid. Wisdom has
its disadvantages. I might be very
happy with Arthur, were I not so
wise." She smiled again at the reflec-
tion in the mirror. "Now, let us go
and astonish the natives."
There was a mild flutter of eyelids
as she sat down beside Warrington
and began to chatter to him In Italian.
He made a brave show of following
her, but became hopelessly lost after
a few minutes. Elsa spoke fluently;
twelve years had elapsed since his last
visit to Italy. He admitted his con-
fusion, and thereafter it was only oc-
casionally that she brought the tongue
into the conversation. This diversion,
which she employed mainly to annoy
her neighbors, was, in truth, the very
worst thing she could have done.
They no longer conjectured; they as-
Warrtngton was too strongly das-
sled by her beauty tonight to be men-
tally keen or to be observing as was
his habit. He never spoke to his
neighbor; he had eyes for none but
Elsa, under whose spell he knew that
he would remain while he lived. He
was nothing to her; he readily under-
stood. She was restless and lonely,
and he amused her. So be it. He be-
lieved that there could not be an un.
happier, more unfortunate man than
himself. To have been betrayed by
the one he had loved, second to but
one, and to have this knowledge thrust
upon him after all these years, was
evil enough; but the nadir of his mis.
fortunes had been reached by the ap.
pearance of this unreadable young
"You arc not listening to a word I
"I beg your pardon But I warned
you that my Italian was rusty." He
pulled himself together.
"But I have been rattling away in
"And I have been wool-gathering."
"Not at all complimentary to me."
"It is because I am very unhappy:;
it Is because Tantalus and I are broth-
"I wish I could make you forget
"On the contrary, the sight of you
sakes memory all the keener." '
He had never spoken like that be-
fore. It rather subdued her, made her
regret that she had surrendered to a
vanity that was without aim or direc-
tion. Farthest from her thought was
conquest of the man. She did not wish
to hurt him. She was not a coquette.
After dinner he did not suggest the
usual promenade. Instead, he excused
himself and went below.
They arrived at Penang early Mon-
day morning. Elsa decided'that War-
rington should take her and Martha on
a personally conducted tour of the
pretty town. As they left for shore he
produced a small beautiful blue feath.

ments of Rajah; and she stuck it In
the pugree of her helmet.
"This is not from the dove of peace."
"Its archenemy, rather," he laughed.
"I wish I had, the ability to get as
furious as that btrd. It might do me
a world of good."
"And how long Is it since you were
"Four years," he answered without
enthusiasm. He would not have come
ashore at all but for the fact that Elsa
had ordered the expedition.
There was no inclination to explore
the shops; so they hired a landau and
rode about town, climbed up to the
quaint temple in the hills, and made a
tour of the botanical gardens.
"Isn't it delicious!" murmured Elsa.
taking in deep breaths of the warm
spice-laden air. Since her visit to the
wonderful gardens at Kandy in Cey-
lon she had found a new Interest In
plants and trees,
She thoroughly enjoyed the few
hours on land, even to the powwow
Warrington had with the unscrupulous
driver, who, at the journey's end, sub-
stituted one price for another, despite
his original bargain.
As they waited for the tender that
was to convey them back to the ship,
Elsa observed a powerful middle-aged
man, gray-haired, hawk-faced, steel-
eyed, watching her companion intent.
ly. Then his boring-gage traveled over
her, from her canvas shoes to her hel-
met. There was something so baldly
appraising in the look that a flush of
anger surged into her cheeks. The
man turned and said something to his
companion, who shrugged and smiled.
Impatiently Elsa tugged at Warring-
"Who is that man over there by the
railing?" she asked in a very low vote
"He looks as If he knew you"
"Knew me?" Warrlngton echoed.
The moment he had been dreading had
come. Someone who knew himl He
turned his head slowly, and Elsa, who
had not dropped her hand, could feel
the muscles of his arm stiffen under
the sleeve. He held the stranger's eye
defiantly for a space. The latter
laughed insolently It silently. It was
more for Elsa's sake than for his own
that Warrington allowed the other to
stare him down. The flame passed,
leaving him as cold as ashes. "I shall
tell you who he is later; not here."
For the second time since that night
on the Irrawaddy, Elsa recorded a dfs-
agreeable sensation. It proved to be
transitory, but at the time it served to
establish a stronger doubt in regard to
her independence, so justifiable In her
own eyes. It might be Insidiously lead-
ing her too far away from the step.
ping-of place. The unspoken words In
those hateful eyes! Telie man knew
Warrington, knew him perhaps as a
malefacf.or, and Judged his associates
accordingly. She thus readily saw the
place she occupied in the man's esti-
mation. She experienced a shiver of
dread as she observed that he stepped
on board the tender. She even heard
him call back to his friend to expect
him in from Singapore during the sec.
ond week in March. But the dread
went away, and pride and anger grew
instead. All the way back to the ship
she held her chin in the air, and from
time to time her nostrils dilated. That
look If she had been nearer she was
certain that she would have struck
him across the face.
"There will be no one up in the
bow," said Warrington. "Will you go
up there with me?"
After a moment's hesitation, she
nodded. A moment after she felt the
old familiar throb under her feet, and
the ship moved slowly out of the bay.
"Do you know that that man came

as they drew away. "This is the story.

"Oh, I am sorry I" she cried.
"Thanks. But you see: I am an out-

be In ignorance of who I am and' what
I have done. Trust Craig and Mallow
for that. Thursday we shall be In
Singapore. You must not speak to me
again. Give them to understand that
you have found me out, that I imposed
on your kindness."
"That I will not do."
"Act as you please. There are empty
chairs at the second-class table, among
the natives. And now, good-by. The
happiest hours in ten long years are
due to you." He took off his helmet
and stepped aside for her to pass. She
held out her hand, but he shook bis
head. "Don't make it harder for me."
"Mr. Warrington, I am not a child!"
"To me you have been the angel of
kindness; and tho light in your face
I shall always see. Please go now."
"Very well." A new and unaccount-
able pain filled her throat and forced
her to carry her head high. "I can find
my way back to the other deck."
The Game of Gossip.
During the concluding days of the
voyage Elea had her meals served on
deck. She kept Martha with her con-
tinually, promenaded only early In the
morning and at night while the other
passengers were at dinner. This left
a clear deck. She walked quickly, her
arm in Martha's. literally propelling
her along, never spoke unless spoken
to, and then answered In monosyl-
lab.Ls. Her thoughts flew to a thou.

ly, in the endeavor to shut out the
portrait of the broken man. What was
he doing, of what was he thinking,
where would he go and what would he
do? She hated night which, no longer
offering sleep, provided nothing in lieu
of it, and compelled her to remain in
the stuffy cabin. She was alrald.
Early Wednesday morning she
passed Craig and Mallow; but the two
had wit enough to step aside for her
and to speak only with their eyes. She
filled Craig with unadulterated fear.
Mallow dragged along the gambler
whenever he found a chance to see
Elsa at close range.
"There's a woman. Gad! that beach-
comber has taste."
"I tell you to look out for her,"
Craig warned again. "I know what I'm

ably acted the fool. Drinking?"
Craig nodded affirmatively.
"Thought so. Even a Yokohama bar.
maid will fight shy of a boozer. I'm
going to meet her when we get to
Singapore, or my name's not Mallow."
Craig laughed with malice. "I hope
you will. It will take some of the brag
out of you. Say, let's go aft and hunt
up the chap. I understand he's taken
up quarters in the second cabin."
"Doesn't want to run into me. All
right; come on. We'll stir him up a
little and have some fun."
They found Warrington up In the
stern, sitting on the deck, surrounded
by squatting Lascars, some Chinamen
and a solitary white man, the chief en.
gineer's assistant The center of in-
terest was Rajah,. who was performing
his tricks. Among these was one
that the bird rarely could be made to
perform, the threading of beads. He
despised this act, as it entailed the put-
ting of a blunt needle in his beak. He
flung it aside each time Warrington
handed it to him. But ever his master
patiently returned It. At length, recog-
nising that the affair might be pro-
longed Indefinitely, Rajah put two
beads on the thread and tossed It
aside. The Lascars Jabbered, the
Chinamen grinned, and the chief en-
gineer's assistant swore approvingly.
The parrot shrilled and waddled back
to his cage.
"Fine business for a whole manl"
Warrinston looked up to meet the
cynical eyes of Mallow. He took out
his cutty and fired It. Otherwise he
did not move nor let his gase swerve.
Mallow, towering above him, could
scarcely resist the temptation to stir
bhis enemy with the toe of bhis boot Hise
hatred for Warrington was not wholly
due to his brutal treatment of him
Mallow always took pleasure In domai-
nating those under him by fear. War-
rington had done his work well. He
had always recognized Mallow as his
employer, but in no other capacity; he
had never offered to smoke a pipe
with him, or to take a hand at cards or
split a bottle. It had not been done
offensively; but in this attitude Mal.
low had recognized his manager's dis-
approval of him, an inner etnaclous
ness of superiority In birth and educa
tion. He had with supreme satisfac.
tion ordered him off the plantation
that memorable night. Weak as the
man had been in body, there had
been no Indication of weakness In
Occultly Warrington read the desire
in the other's eyes. "I shouldn't do it,
Mallow," he said. "I shouldn't. Noth.
ing would please me better than to
have a good excuse to chuck you over
the rail. Upon a time you had the best
of me. I was a sick man then. I'm in
tolerable good health at present."
"You crow, I could break you ilke a
pipe stem." Mallow rammed his hands
into his coat pockets, scowling con-
temptuously. He weighed fully twenty
pounds more than Warrington.
Crow! Warrington shrugged. In
the East crow is a rough synonym for
thief. "You're at liberty to return to
your diggings forward with that im-
pression," he replied coolly. "When
we get to Singapore," rising slowly to
his height until his eyes were level
with Mallow's, "when we get to Singa.

best rough and tumble fighters in the
Straits settlements. "You thieving

up the deck with you, but I'll cut your
comb for you when we get to port."
Warrington laughed insolently and
picked up the parrot cage. "I'll brig
the comb. In fact, I always carry it."
Not a word to Craig, not a glance fn
his direction. Warrington stepped to
the companionway and went below.
Craig could not resist grinning at
Mallow's discomfiture. "Wouldn't

given him the ducking was still vivid.
He had been handled as a terrier

"I tell you be's yellow. And with a

A hundred thousand. Craig frowned
and gazed out to sea. He had forgot-
ten all about the windfall. "Let's go
and have a peg." he suggested surlily.
Immediately upon obtaining her
rooms at Raffles hotel in Singapore
(and leaving Martha there to await
the arrival of the luggage, an impos-
ing collection of trunks and boxes and
kitbags), Elsa went dowf to the Amer-
ican consulate, which had its offices in
the rear of the hotel. She walked
through the outer office and stood si-
lently at the consul general's elbow,
waiting for him to look up. She was
dressed In white, and in the pugree of
her helmet was the one touch of color,
Rajah's blue feather. The consul gen-
eral turned his head. His kindly face
had the settled expression of Indul-
gent inquiry. The expression changed
swiftly into one of delight

her hands. "Well, well I am glad to

such a law in existence the fruit
growers of the State would have
been saved the loss of half a
million dollars or more due to
the introduction into Florida of
citrus canker two or three years
It has cost more to bring this
one disease under control than
the proposed law will call for in
a period of several years and
canker has not yet been eradi-
cateil froln the State. There
are any number ( f other diseases
of plaint life which are costing
their tate anniillly hundreds of
thousands of d(1l irs that might
have been presented by an
adequate crop pest law at that
time they first introduced.
The farmers and fruit growers
are no more concerned in this
matter, in its final analysis,
tlian other business interests.
Bankers, manufacturers, mer-
chants and all lines of industry
are hurt by anything which
may affect the agricultural
prosperity of Florida. The
nioney that has gone to fight
coitrus canker, for instance,
would have done much for the
upbuilding of the State if it had
been spent in constructive in-
stead ou' destructive lines.
The crop pest bill has few
open opponents. There are in-
dications that it is being fought
quietly by a group of politicians
however. These men may feel
that their pickiilgs will be de-
creased by the amount of money
that it is proposed to expend for
the protection oif the farmers of
thle State. The task of a plant
inspector involve, a lot of hard
physical work and for this
reason jobs under the new law
may not be very much in de-
Inand. The business men whom
we believe to constitute the
majority of the Legislature
should not be influenced by any
selfish opposition to the crop
Every voter who wants to see
agricultural Florida prosper
should immediately write or
wire the the members of Legislature
who represent him asking them
to vote for this bill. It las
been favorably reported by the
agricultural and appropriations
committees of both Houses.
The enactment of the measure
into law will be assured if the
members of the Legislature
learn that their constituents de-
mand it. Do not fail to com-
municate with your Representa-
tives and Senators quickly. The
vote is likely to be taken early
this week. So that it will be
better to wire than to write.-

SEEK TROPHIES OF THE WAR
Curio Dealers Willing to Pay High
Prices for Mementoes, Which
They Hope to Sell.
Curio dealers from England and
from the continent are reported to be
in the vicinity of the battlefields in
northern France endeavoring to buy
trophies of the war, which they hope
In time may be valuable. They find,
it is said, some difficulty in driving
bargains. Amateurs who have come
int6 possession of trophies hold them
for high prices or will not sell on any
consideration. It is recalled that after
the American Civil war. came to an
end a bookseller in the Bermudas,
when the cargoes of the blockade run-
ners in the harbor of Hamilton were
sold at auction, bought a number of
package cases without the least knowl-
edge of their contents. Among these
were several boxes of brass buttons
consigned to the Confederate army
for use on soldiers' uniforms. Some
twenty years later tourists discovered
these old Confederate buttons. A New
York dealer made a high bid for the
entire supply. This bid was refused,
and these buttons for which in the
war-torn years a small fraction of
a cent was paid, have been selling at
75 cents and $1 each.
She Was Flabbergasted.
Dr. Charles 1I. Parkhurst in his
witty war on cosmetics said in a re-
cent lecture in New York:
"A girl and a man sat under a palm
In a rose garden on a soft March

'Is your love true?' the girl asked
'As true,' the man answered in
low, passionate tones, 'as the delicate
flush on your cheek.'
"'Oh-er-ah,' the girl stammered
hurriedly, 'Isn't the-er-don't the
roses smell sweet?' "
Mr. Carnegie, the evening he ad-
dressed the Rockefeller Bible class
at the Aldine club in New York, had
occasion to refer to a cynic.

Mr. Carnegie. "Once, advising me to

resolutions which have been forward-

representatives at the state capitol fa-
voring the passage of the pest bill and
also the appropriation by the state of

vention was offered by M. E. Glllett,

Gillett was instructed to forward a

bill and the appropriation. When it
was proposed that society members
send telegrams to their senators and
representatives there was a rush for
blanks and forms were filled out yI
the dozen so that it was only neces-
sary for each member to fill in the
name of his senator and representative

Bill To Assist In This
Tallaha.ssee.-The creation of a
state plant board, the duties of
which shall be to prevent the intro.
duction into and dissemination with-
in this state of insect pests and dis.
eases injurious to plants and plant
products of this state, is proposed in
a bill which Senator Hudson of Mi-
ami has introduced in the senate.
Dr. Hiram Bird, formerly of the
state board of health, now represent-
ing citrus fruit growers in the canker
infected district; Lloyd W. Tenney,
representing the Shippers and Grow-
ers' Exchange, at Orlando, and Harold
HI. Hume, president of the Florida
Horticultural Society, are in Tallahas-
see to urge upon the legislators the
necessity for an appropriation to carry
on the work of destroying the citrus
canker and other plant pests. They
declare that the work is now progres-
sing satisfactorily and they have suf-
ficient funds to carry on the campaign
until July. They warn that unless
funds are provided to carry on the
work that has been started, and which
is proving resultful, the citrus indus-
try of the state is doomed.
One hundred and seventeen men
have been engaged in the pest eradi-
cation campaign in Dade county since
its prevalence became known. The
infected area extends from one end
of the state to the other, though not

DIVER FINDS SUBMARINE
Lost U. S. Submarine F.4 Found At
Depth Of 288 Feet In
Honolulu.-Chief Gunner's Mate
Ctilley, went 288 feet under water
here and walked along the top of the
submarine F-4, which disappeared on
March 15. The depth is said by na-
val officers to be a world's diving rec-
Crilley found the' F-4 lying on a
smooth, sandy bottom with no coral
growth to impede hoisting operations.
She lay on her starboard side, her bow
pointing shoreward. Two parted lines
were found attached to the craft.
After Crilley reported it was said
further observations probably would
be made before an attempt is made to
raise the F-4.
The diver went down in an ordi-
nary diving suit and the recompres-
sion chamber designed to reduce pres-
sure on him was not used.
Crilley was under water two hours.
He descended in five minutes and was
on the bottom twelve minutes. An
hour and forty-five minutes was re-
quired to bring him to the surface in
order to accustom him gradually to
the change in air pressure.
The Japanese cruiser Idzumo, on
leaving Honolulu, steamed in a semi-
circle about the point where the sub-
marine is believed to lie; the crew
were drawn up in salute and the war-
ship's fag was dipped in honor of the
twenty-one men who went to their
death on the F-4.

LESSON FOR APRIL 25
DAVID AND GOLIATH.
LESSON TEXT-I Samuel 17:3-51.
GOLDEN TEXT-If God be for us, who
Is against us?-Rom. 8:31 R. V.
For forty days (v. 16) Goliath defied
Saul's army, encamped near Bethle-
hem. Three of the sons of Jesse were
in Saul's army and to them David is
sent with food (w. 13, 18, 19). These
brothers scornfully reproached David
when he expressed a willingness to
fight Goliath, accusing him of pride and
reminding him that he was but a shep-
herd (vv. 26-29). David's words are
carried to Saul and he is introduced to
I. Boastful Pride, vv. 3844. Fear
and dismay were aroused at the very
sight of this proud Philistine (vv. 11,
24, 32), yet such fear was foreign to
David, for his eyes were not upon man
but upon God (v. 37). He related to
Saul his exploits not as boasting but
as giving him assurance that God was
able to deliver him out of the hand of
this Philistine. Saul, who had once
been a man of like simple faith, is now
as much in fear as any of his army.
David was perhaps about twenty years
of age and verse 56 calls him a "strip.
ling," hence it was that Saul's armor
would not fit him (cf. 10:23). Human-
ly speaking, it was an impossible thing
David offered to accomplish single-
handed. Even Saul (v. 32) sought to
dissuade David, but David was not
trusting in man nor depending upon
the armor of the king (v. 39; Pa. 27:1-
3; Isa. 12:2; Rom. 8:31). David took
his familiar staff and sling (see 1
These. 5:2'1 and sallied forth, "strong
in the Lord, not in himself; armed not
with steel but with faith." Crossing
"the valley" (v. 40 marg.) he prepared
his sling, with which every Israelite
was skilled (see I Sam. 13:19-23). On
came the giant, a man about nine feet
tall (v. 4), "a stalking mountain, over-
laid with brass and iron," preceded by
his protector (v. 41). Why such a sol-
dier after his period of triumph should
desire this added safety is not quit*4
clear. It suggests, however, the sin-
ner's timidity which reveals his essen-
tial weakness in that he trusts him-
self, takes no chances, and is even sus-
picious of his own supporters. What
a contrast! This armored giant and
this ruddy-faced, unarrned youth, car-
rying only the staff, wherewith he was
wont to fight wild beasts, and his
sling! When God calls a man he uses
that weapon with which the man is
most familiar, and when the church or
the Christian soldier seeks to fight in
the armor of another, or by using the
weapons of the world, it Is foredoomed
to failure (Ex. 4:2; Judges 3:31).
II. Conquering Humility, vv. 45-51.
David acknowledged Goliath's su-
perior armament, yet armed with the
name of the God of the army of Israel
which Goliath had insulted, his confi-
dence overtops that of the Philistine
and he hurls back his broud boast.
Furthermore, the victory was to be an
immediate one, "this day" (Zech. 4:6;
James 4:7). With calm assurance he
Informs Goliath of the outcome of
their conflict, but takes no credit to
himself. David had naught but naked
faith and the sense of a just cause to
strengthen his arm. He would do to
Goliath and the Philistines the things
that Goliath had boasted he would do
to David (vv. 44 and 46) "that all the
earth may know that there is a God
In Israel;" see also v. 47. David's
seemingly insufficient preparation is
now revealed to be abundant, for he
had four stones more than he needed
(v. 40). It is thus that God chooses
the weak things to confound the mighty
(I Cor. 1:27,.
Ill. Summary. We have before us
three lessons. First the lesson of indi-
vidual responsibility. A sinful king had
paralyzed the effectiveness of the
army of Israel. David, "a man after
God's own heart," refused Saul's ar-
mor, crying out "I cannot go in these."
Saul, bound by tradition, must use
conventional weapons. Every great
advance in the history of the church
has been led by some man who struck
out boldly, insensible alike to the con-
ventionalism of his friends and the
gibes of the enemy. God would have
every man work according to himself,
not copying, not imitating, but wit his
own equipment. Second, all the giants
of sin have not yet been overthrown.
We still have the giants of Intemper-
ance, Unchastity, Graft, Selfishness,
Ambition and the Inequalities of our
civic and social life. These can only
be overcome in the strength of God.
Bunyan mentions three giants.
Pride, Grim and Pagan; to these we
may add, Anger, Untruthfulness, Self-
ishness and Sullenness.
FINEST OF ALL WATERFALLS
Traveler Must Visit British Guiana
to See the Grandest Cataract
in the World.
A little way back from the coast of
British Guiana the traveler enters
practically unknown land. The ground
breaks sharply up to high plateaus
and rugged mountains aud the jungle
throws a green barrier across the
way. The man who would find his
way up the river must be prepared for
rapids and cataracts, for careful pad-
dling, where a mistake means dis-
aster, and for long portage and toil-
some climbs. Therefore few men at-
tempt the journey. although the "per-
fect waterfall,'" tiv- times as high as

fort. Mr. Warfield describes such a

Washington.-Secretary Bryan. said
that before criticizing Read Admiral
Peary's recent speech on possible ter-

he had written the admiral for veri-
fication of his remarks and received
an authenticated copy. Mr. Bryan's
comment on the speech, as given out
at the state department, said, In part:
"Rear Admiral Peary, speaking at a
republican banquet in New York, re-
cently, said: 'We cannot stand still.
A hundred years hence we shall either
be obliterated as a nation or we shall
occupy the entire North American
world segment.' It is to be regretted
that a man known to the public should
so much enjoy Indulging his imagina-
tion as to be indifferent to the effect
which his utterances may have upon
this country's relations with other na-
"He fixes pne hundred years as the
period during which it will be neces-
sary for this government to secure
control of the continent or disappear.
"It has been a century since the
boundary line between the United
States and Canada was established,
and yet both countries are more pros-
perous today than they were a hun-
dred years ago. This country shares
the larger part of North America with
several Spanish-speaking republics,

Washington.-The need of self-pos-

present world crisis was urged by
President Wilson In a speech before
the opening session of the twenty-
fourth continental congress of the
Daughters of the American Revolu-
The president said self-possession
was the supreme test of a nation's
mettle, and urged the congress to rally
to the cause of righteousness, as min-
istered by those who hold their minds
quiet and Judge upon principle.
FolloWing the president's speech,
Ambassador Jusserand of France told
the congress that the United States
had behaved in the European crisis
so as to command the gratitude and
thankfulness of the world.
"We in France," he said, "have
learned to know what the American
heart "is made of-the pure American
gold that is In it. I am glad that I-
ma* affirm the thanks of France for
the generosity of America-the neu-

terms and that it was "Indiscreet" for
him to speak even in that way.
