That the churches are well repre-
sented in both houses of congress is
evidenced by a statement issued by
the board of temperance, prohibition
and public morals of the Methodist
Episcopal church, which recently made
a survey and issued the following

Shows Footprints of Dinosaurs.
The department of geology at Mount
Holyoke college, in replacing collec-
tions lost by fire, has obtained a slab
of Connecticut valley sandstone on
which are found fossilized mud cracks
and ripple marks of bygone ages, and
with them seven footprints made by
giant dinosaurs. The slab is an un-
usually good specimen, as both sides
have marks of geological interest. It
measures 12 by 6 feet.
The ripple marks were made in the
ooze millions of years ago, when the
region of the present Connecticut val-
ley was a large river bottom, occa-
sionally flooded. They are unusually
The footprints show that at least
two dinosaurs, one a big one, the oth-
er apparently its young, roamed over
the mud flats on their hind legs. The
larger tracks are about 8 inches long
and the indicated stride 4 or 5 feet.
African King's Curious Custom,
In Central Africa is a little kingdom
that has a ferocious king that has an
old and curious custom of frightening
his subjects, no matter whether they
wish to speuk to him or he to them.
If one of his subjects wishes to in-
terview the king, the subject must
cough three times and the king
will roar at him and try to frighten
him away. If the subject is unafraid
and repeats his cough, he can gain
audience with the king, but if he
shows the least sign of fear and starts
backward, the king follows him until
the man is off and away.
Tom Cat “Adopted” Turkeys.
An Alberta woman who owns a farm
says that she had two turkeys hatched
out late in the summer, by an old hen.
“The hen would have nothing to do
with the chicks so she brought them
up around the door yard. At night
she covered the birds up but in the
daytime they wandered at will, A
young tom cat took a fancy to the
little turkeys and it was a common
sight to see Tom curled up in the sun-
shine with a turkey on either side of
Lived Long With Broken Neck.
A ten-year-old Walsall, Staffordshire,
Eng., schoolboy went to school regu-
larly for five weeks with a broken
neck, The lad, when in a hospital for
treatment, made a slight movement
which caused pressure on the spinal
cord and instant death. The surgeon
sald that the boy had been protected
by nature’s own method of contrac
tion of the muscles.

CHOICE OF DRESS
Women Should Use Brains, As
serts Fashion Writer.
Thought to Right Garment for Righ'
Occasion, and Glance at Mode
Will Be Aid.
“The reactionary period of fashiox
is upon us, when the French designers
insist on purity of line, women must
return to her stays, the uncorseted fig:
ure, the extremely short skirt, and an
immodest decolletage must give way
to dignity and modesty in dress.” This
is the opinion expressed by a promi.
nent writer of fashions and designer
of many a distinctive dress and dress
“The corset bids fair to come back a
modified and corrective article of
dress, an inconspicuous and usefu!
preserver of the beautiful lines of the
“This is the opportunity of the wom-
an who is clever enough to dress with
her brains instead of with her purse
alone. If a woman of average intel-
ligence gives her thought to the right
garment for the right occasion and
casts a sharp glance at the present
mode she may dress well at compara-
tively small outlay.”
The speaker was busily fashioning
an odd little bag of velvet. She was
wearing a knitted sport dress, high
of neck and long of sleeve, in a deli-
“I knitted this dress. You see, I
p.actice as well as preach,” she naive-
ly produced the daintiest of work bags
and exhibited a black lace stocking
she has just finished.
“Here's a stocking I made to match
a black lace evening gown. Simply rip
up an old stocking for a pattern and
cut from a yard of all-over lace, use
silk jersey for sole, heel and toe,
whip the seam carefully and finish the
top with the hem from a discarded
pair of stockings.” The directions
were simple and the product a tell-
ing tribute to the skill of the maker.
“And here's a sport dress any girl
may have now that tweed-like fabrics
and economy are in vogue. This de-
sign will be brought out in the spring
by a manufacturer in several colors.
I did it this way: The one-piece skirt !
is in brown burlap; the six-inch hem
is cut and fringed. The shirt is at-
tached to a darted brassiere with |
shoulder straps and is worn with a
sweater. A soft-crowned hat with a
brim of burlap is fringed to match the
Even the shoes were her own design,
black, patent leather, high lace boots
with sides of dull black satin. Of
course there was reason. “I'm a great
friend of the high lace boot with a low
heel and moderate sole for golfing,
general walking in fact, for all |
of-doors sperts. Low shoes ruin the |
line of the ankle, so the sensible wom- |
an will choose the high shoe, even if |
it is a bit inconvenient as to lacing, |
in order to present a trim silken clad |
ankle in the drawing room.” i
In the matter of home furnishings |
she was enthuslastic. She declared
she “dressed up” her own home in
unbleached muslin dyed in shades from
brown to gold, used black lace shades
appliqued with a medallion of color
cut from a design in cretonne in a
room furnished with old-fashioned hair |
cloth furniture. |
“The effect is artistic and restful,
the browns and golds cheer up the
haircloth furniture in its austere wal-
nut, the tones of the medallions blend
the schemes together, The expense
was small, but the investment of time
and thought repaid me, as it does any
woman who loves her home.”
THE HOOP-SKIRT FOR SPRING
The hoop effect is quite pronounced
in a new style of skirt already being
manufactured in Chicago for milady’s

ASK FOR INSURANCE.
What percentage of ex-soldiers will
choose cash in the event compensation
passes Congress? That question is
troubling Legislators at Washington.
Results of referendum votes conduct-
ed by the American Legion in widely
separated localities indicate that the
choice of the five provisions of the
bill would largely depend on the vary-
ing geographical and economic condi-
tions existing in the different sections
of the country.
More than 80 per cent. of 5,000
Pennsylvania veterans chose paid-up
insurance in a recent poll. On the oth-
er hand, two-thirds of the 6,106 Iowa
ex-soldiers that voted chose to receive
cash. This fact has been attributed
to the hardships accruing from agri-
cultural depression there. The refer-
endum was conducted by the Iowa
Legionnaire, an official Legion publi-
cation and showed the State to be
strong for compensation, only two
negative votes having been cast.
If the Kansas balloting were to be
taken as a criterion, less than one-half
of all ex-service men would ask for
ready cash. At Wichita 36 per cent.
of Legion members signified they
wished cash, and at Atchison 35 per
cent. The latter Post favored paid-
up insurance, while Wichita cast a
majority for the home and farm aid
feature of the bill.
In preparing an estimate for the
House, Ways and Means committee,
fiscal officers for the Army, Navy and
Marine Corps worked on the basis
that 50 per cent. of the navy men
would elect cash settlement. On this
division the cost of compensation was
put at $2,500,000,000. Legion officials
took issue with the navy and marine
corps heads on the 75 per cent. esti-

Does Your Budget
You read in the newspapers about
the various European governments
trying to make their budgets balance.
A government cannot long expend
more money than it receives, any more
than an individual can. It is import-
ant to balance the household budget,
and included in this budget should be
a proper provision for saving.
The finances of the family must be
placed on a business basis if proper
provision is to be made for the time
when earning power diminishes. Nine
times out of ten the women are the
money savers of the family. They
have the real knack of saving. They
know, too, how to make one dollar do
the work of two in buying.
This bank welcomes the savings ac-
counts of thrifty women and will be
glad to assist them in business mat-
