How Woolworth Got His Start.
One day a clerk in Moore & Smith’s
general store in Watertown, New
York, said to his employers, “I have
thought of a way to sell our odds and
ends that haven’t been moving very
fast.” On a small sewing table placed
near the front of the store he arrang-
ed a miscellany with a placard, “Your
choice, 5c.” At the end of the day the
table was nearly bare. :
That clerk’s name was Frank Wool-
worth. His sewing table has grown
into 1600 stores in the United States,
Canada and England.
The clerk started a five-cent store
in Utica, in 1879, borrowing from one
of his bosses $300, enough to buy
eight thousand articles to retail at five
cents. Sales were only $2.20 a day, so
that store was discontinued abruptly.
Two months later Woolworth tried
again with another store at Lancaster,
Pennsylvania, where nearly a third
of the stock was sold on the opening
day. This is the world’s oldest exist-
ing five-and-ten-cent store.
As Frank Woolworth began to need
managers and partners in charge of
his new stores, he started to interest
his fellow clerks, relatives and neigh-
bors. “Why don’t you get in on this?”
said Woolworth to everybody who
came near him, C. S. Woolworth, his
brother, S. H. Knox, his cousin, F. M.
Kirby, a fellow clerk, C. C. Peck, a
competitor's clerk. Even Earl P.
Charlton, a traveling salesman from
New England who came to sell goods
to the five-and-ten-cent stores, went
away to establish chains of such stores
in New England, Canada and the Pa-
cific coast. Finally, Woolworth’s old
employers gave up their dry goods
business to establish five-and-ten-cent
stores, one in the West, and one of
them in the same room where his
former clerk had laid out the first 5c.
counter. The little tail had become
the dog.—By Peter F. O’Shea, from
Everybody’s Magazine for Sept.
Smut Loss May Reach $2,000,000,00.
Stinking smut of wheat has this
year caused the greatest loss to that
crop ever known in Pennsylvania.
It is said that this year’s loss is so
great that it equals the combined total
loss from this disease for the past ten
years, according to R. S. Kirby, cereal
disease specialist at the Pennsylvania
This smut it is estimated, will re-
duce the 1926 Pennsylvania wheat
crop by over 1,000,000 bushels. The
heavy additional loss which comes
from dockage will bring the total loss
to nearly two million dollars.
Only one in every forty Pennsylva-
nia farmers escaped sharing the loss
by treating their wheat in accordance
with directions offered by the agricui-
tural extension service at State Col-
This dreaded smut can be controlled
by applying the following four rules
when seeding their wheat next month:
1. Obtain wheat for seed which is as
smut-free as possible. Wheat that has
over ten per cent. smut should not be
2. Before planting all wheat should
be thoroughly cleaned to remove the
3. Seed wheat known to have stink-
ing smut should be treated with cop-
per carbonate dust before planting.
4. Plant wheat on or as soon after
the Hessian fly-free dates as possible.

Preparing for Santa Claus.
The American Red Cross is issuing
a final call to its chapters throughout
the country for the production of
Christmas bags for soldiers, sailors,
and marines stationed at = distant
36,000 bags will be needed this
year, the organization states. They
will be sent to enlisted men on duty
in the Philippines, China, Guam,
Samoa, Hawaii, Alaska, the Canal
Zone, Haiti, Porto Rico, and the Vir-
gin Islands. ;
Many of these men are without
home ties, and the Christmas bags
prepared by American Red Cross
volunteer workers and sent to them
constitute in many cases the only
home touch that Christmas brings.
The hundreds of letters received by
the American Red Cross after every
Christmas from men who have receiv-
ed these bags, testify to appreciation
of the soldiers, sailors and marines
for these little remembrances, officials

FOR AND ABOUT WOMEN.
A malicious truth often does more harm
than an innocent lie.—The Woman Beau-
Is your hat “bein coiffane”? The
Paris vendeuse reserves that compli-
ment for the perfect hat, the hat that.
is perfect on the customer’s head.
We haven't any two words in English
that mean so much. It means more
than a good fit, the correct number of
inches around the crown. It means
also a hat that is suitable in texture,
color and line. That compliments the
face, and belongs unquestionably to
the wearer. I like the vendeuse’s
Of course, the hat that has the best
chance of living up to such praise is
the one that is just the right head-
size—a hat that goes on as neatly as a
glove stays in place. The trying hat
is usually one that is big. Being held
out and on with rolls of velvet may
help to keep the hat and head togeth-
er, but it ruins the symmetrical line
from the top of the hat to the nape
of the neck. There is a certain grace-
ful sweep to the back of a hat that fits
There is hope for the hat that
pinches. It will stretch. On the Rue
de la Paix they fit them to the cus-
tomer’s head pinch-tight, on the
theory that they will stretch to just
the right size. This may be a bit
drastic. Certainly it’s uncomfortable
for a few days. However, the large
hat (large in the head-size) just kfeps
on growing larger.
Just now it’s style to wear a hat
well pulled down, unless one wants to
take flapper’s license and slide it back
on the forehead. The overhead of a
smart hat is generous. It is built to
come down on the forehead ahd over
the ears. Practically all of the hair
goes under it.
It is quite possible to fit a hat
smoothly over long hair if the hair is
dressed flat to the head. Hard knots
of hair are apt to bulge the crown and
spoil the contour of the hat.
A millinery buyer in one of the
large New York department stores
makes a very apt analysis of the parts
of a hat in their relation to the hat’s
becomingness. He considers of first
importance the fit at the point where
the crown and brim meet. He places
the crown of the hat next in import-
ance. The crown is the crux of the
hat, the brim an accessory, as is the
trimming. In fact, he places the rest
of the hat in this order: color, texture,
brim, trimming if any.
Regardless of prevailing styles,
crowns ought to look at least as wide
as the face. A crown a little wider
than the face is flattering to the full
broad face. This is a good season for
faces, for crowns are ample and
pliable. They can be manipulated.
The woman with large head and big
shoulders needs a large crown. By
contrast a skimpy crown would accen-
tuate her head and shoulder-size.
The woman with thin features and
thin neck looks best with her hat
crown rather small if it is draped and
so manipulated that it looks well.
The short woman ought to have a
well-fitting crown, one that suggests
the contour of her head but preferably
one that has lines to carry the eye up-
ward. A lumbering crown of exag-
gerated height overpowers the petite
The tall woman’s most successful
crown is one that gives the effect of
The woman who wears glasses has
somewhat the same problem as the
woman with the broad face. Glasses
seem to widen the face. If you are
putting on glasses for the first time,
you may find a hat more becoming if
it has a wider crown than you are
accustomed to wearing. A brim that
shades the face is better than one that
turns up abruptly. Perhaps the very
nicest brim is one that rolls down just
enough to shade the eyes and then
There are several things for which
you can always depend on brims. The
brimless hat or the one with a very
narrow brim turned back on the erown
is trying even to the perfect face. Its
lack of widtli makes it especially un-
desirable for the woman with a full
face. The brim of medium width that
shades the eyes is generally becoming.
A brim that turns up somewhere, the
front, the side, the neck, offers a little
more variety and interest than one
that turns up all the way around or
down all the way around. The woman
with a large nose does well to select
a hat with moderate brim, brim
enough both front and back to balance
For trimmings you cannot make
rules. I believe there are more hats
that suffer from too much than too
little trimming. However, I am not
for severely plain hats, that depend
on the perfectness of their line and
have nothing else to recommend them.
They make a plain face seem plainer.
They are only for the beautiful. Even
so I think they are tiresome. A hat
can be plain tailored and still have a
little bow or cocarde at the side to
intrigue the eye. The trimming test
is to try taking the. trimming off or
part of it off, mentally if not actually,
and see if the hat is improved.
On those occasions when one wishes
a cool drink that is also healthful and
nourishing, we suggest ginger egg-
nog. To each tumbler of chilled rich
milk are added a quarter of a tumbler
of ginger syrup and the beaten white
of one fresh egg. This is shaken in a
shaker, and a dash of grated lemon
peel is added just before serving.
A delicious, nourishing drink, more
difficult to make than ginger egg-nog,
but well worth the trouble, is coffee
malted milk. Two and one-half tea-
spoonfuls of malted milk are blended
with a little hot water. The malted
milk must be thoroughly dissolved.
To this liquid is added a cupful of rich
milk, and the whole is put into a
shaker, with two tablespoonfuls of
coffee, twv tablespoonfuls of sugar,
one egg, and shaved ice, and shaken
for two minutes; then it is strained
into a tall glass. It is topped with
two tablespoonfuls of vanilla ice
cream for serving.
Mexico’s Great Hope.
The following remarkable statement
is taken from La Prensa:
“City of Mexico, June 27, 1926.
“A campaign against bull-fights has
been initiated in this republic by the
“The movement began in a rural
school near the City of Mexico by
means of a petition signed by thous-
ands of boys and girls and sent to the
Minister of Education, demanding
that, since Mexico has reached a high-
er degree of culture and enlighten-
ment, the barbarity of the bull-fight,
which is an affront to civilization, be
“The petition requests the Secre-
tary of Education to obtain the assist-
ance of other high government offi-
cials to put an end to bull-fights or at
least to Divan the slaughter of the
horses which now take a leading part
in the bull-fight.”
When Car Sticks in Mud Don’t Speed
When the car becomes stuck in the
mud do not try to put on speed to get
out, for this will only spin the wheels
and make them sink deeper. Put the
engine in low, go slow, and do not try
to turn from side to side. Keep
straight ahead. If the front wheels
are turned ahead the engine must
push the car against the weight of
the mud ahead.
If the wheels start spinning put on
the emergency brake just enough to
stop the spin. That will frequently
enable them to take hold. If it is pos-
sible, get any old rope, board, bushes,
sacks, or even a quantity of paper,
and put it under the wheels to help
give traction. It is also advisable to
apply chains before tackling wet or
