And the heart that is soonest awake to
the flowers,
Is always the first to be touch’d by the
—Thomas Moore.
. —Among the new notes for fall
transparent velvet, soft and rich and
as suple as silk.
“Tweed for the sports wear is al-
ways good,” “and it has the appear-
ance of being so well bred. Checks
are very good this year as are wool
challis. For morning wear dark col-
-ored cotton is very practical and very
good looking.”
. “Sheerness is the outstanding note
in fall fabrics. Even wool dresses are
transparent. Wool georgette is very
new and so smart. In colors, brown
is best for sports wear. Brown and
blue are the best fall colors. Grey
is good for anyone who can wear it, |]
but since so few can it will never
have the vogue of the other colors.
Black is very, very good.”
“Slenderizing lines should be sought
after by most every woman. It is
better to choose slenderizing dresses
than to do without the things you
like to eat over a long period of time.
Slimness and zealous preservation of
youth are the aims of every American
Reptile skins, lizard and alligator
are good in shoes as is the grey gun-
metal. Much costume jewelry is
worn. Rhinestone flowers ‘and lots of
gold jewelry, necklaces, choker col-
lars and bracelets are worn, Simple
buckles are used as trimmings.
—The newest fashion for milady of
charm and youth for the coming yo
ter season is a reversible dress. In
others words the dress, front or back,
can be worn either way with equal
grace. It was introduced here by
Ralph Moni, Chicago designer at the
semi-annual convention of the Fash-
ion Art League. Most of the models
in the parade which showed the new
creations wore skirts at least two
inches below the knee.
—The new cloth and fur coats for
Fall are practically interesting, but
perhaps the couturers have been most
successful with the coats which are of
cloth, fur trimmed, which they have
designed to meet the demand for a
chic and serviceable coat of more ver-
satile uses than that which is entire-
ly of fur. Such delightful fabrics are
used—the new angora wool jersey,
velveteen, broadcloth, duvetyne ba-
quette and other new materials, They
are successfully combined with such
furs as badger, shaved lamb, broad-
tail, nutria, beaver, wolf, caracul and
fox, and in design and silhouette fol-
low the vogue for sophisticated sim-
Lavishness in fur trimming is tabu,
but the collars are large and the cuffs
deep. « All the new dark shades of the
smart full colors are used, and though
most of the topcoats are full length,
there is an increasing vogue for
three-quarter length coats.
—For many people peas and beans
are just vegetables. They are care-
lessly included in the menu on the
assumption that people must eat
vegetables, especially if they eat meat,
in order to balance their diet. And
nothing is easier than to reach for a h
can of peas or a can of beans.
These articles of diet have their
place, but too often they are out of
place in the family dietary. Lamb
chops and green peas or roast lamb
and green peas are common food com-
binations. Dietetically this is almost
the same as eating roast beef and
lamb at the same meal.
These leguminous vegetables are
very high in protein. In the dried
state they are even higher in protein
than meat. In the fresh state they
have the advantage of containing a
liberal quantity of vitamins. They
supply bulk and a certain amount of
iron and calcium, and in that respect
they are superior to meat.
These foods should be used more
generally as meat substitutes than in
combination with meat.
One caution is to be observed with
regard to the lack of vitamins in can-
ned peas or beans. It is, of course,
very easy to supply this lack by in-
cluding cabbage, oranges or canned
tomatoes in the daily dietary; but it
is not entirely safe to add canned
peas to the diet on the assumption
that because it is a “green” vegetable
it is holding the diet safe with re-
gard to vitamins. The canning pro-
cess is so complicated and varies seo
in different plants that it is impossible
to say how much destruction of vitam-
ins takes place in the preparation of
canned peas and beans.
Vitamin A is somewhat resistant to
heat. The principal vitamin in these
leguminous vegetables is Vitamin B.
None of the legumes are rich in Vit-
amin C. The degree of destruction
of vitamins depends not only on the
degree of heat applied but the dur-
ation of the heat and the supply of
oxygen. Vitamin B is peculiarly sus-
ceptible to heat in the presence of
oxygen, but less so when oxygen s
The very fact that these questions
are raised regarding the influence of
the canning process on peas and beans
justifies classifying them as unde-
pendable sources of vitamins and war-
ants the precaution that more thor-
oughly dependable sources of vitam-
ins should be relied upon for protec-
tion of the diet.
This is not a criticism of these ex-
cellent foods, but rather a plea for
using them more consistently and
and even more widely than at pres-
ent. They are valuable sources not
only of protein but of mineral. It
must also be remembered that the
protein in legumes may be deficient
in the amino-acid cystin, so that they
should not be relied upon as a sole of
protein. A certain amount of cereals
or milk in the diet would make up
for this lack. With this precaution,
these legumes could often be used as
the mainstay of a meal in place of
meat or fish.
It should be explained in relation
to canned tomatoes, that the canning
process does not affect the vitamin
content, presumably on account of
their acid reaction. Canned tomatoes,
like oranges, must be regarded as
safety-first factors in the diet.

Post-War Relief.
William Fortune, Red Cross na-
tional representative, pledged contin-
ued assistance to needy veterans. He
announced the Red Cross had spent
$400,000,000 for war-tim= relief work
and $50,000,000 since the war for
needy ex-soldiers and their families.
The post-war work of ths Knights
of Columbus among soldiers was out-
lined by Dr. J. Calalhan, supreme
treasurer. He said the K. of C. spent
$43,000,000 in the work, most of which
was educational from which 315,000
soldiers had benefited
Mrs. Walter Davol, East Provi-
dence, R. I., was elected chapeau na-

fare organization of the Legion's

Vice presidents were elected as fol-
ows: Mrs. Frances Laughlin, Or-
lando, Fla.; Mrs. Alyse Gill, San
Francisco; Mrs. Marian Doob, Oak

Mrs. Dudgeon, Walch, W. Va.: Mrs.

Reorganization of the administra-

The Legion adopted a resolution fa-
voring the organization of a Jepart-
ment of national defense in which
there would be four divisions, ore
each for the army, navy, air service
and munitions. Each divisen would
have a separate chief under a de-
paritmental secretary, who would be a
meraber of the cabinet.
Stands Along Highways Reaping Gold-
en Harvest.
Farm produce to the value of more
than 32,116,000 per month is sold di-
rect to motorists from roadside mar-
kets in the rural districts of the Unit-
ed States, the American Road Build-
ers’ association reports. The new
market for fresh products has grown
to a $25,000,000 annual business for
the farmer with the spread of the
good roads movement.
The figure includes only the pro-
duce purchased direct from small
stands operating along the highways,
usually by the small truck farmer.
The sale of fresh eggs, milk and but-
ter to urban residents who drive to
the farm to secure their fresh foods
would easily bring the figure to more
than $50,000,000 annually, according
to the estimate.
The use of modern highways to im-
prove the marketing facilities of the
farmer will be one of the subjects dis-
cussed in detail at the 1927 convention
and road show of the American Road
Builders’ association.

Simple Way to Prove
Truth of Old Saying
Jur community chuckles over this
story of our old grocery-man who
caught a eanny customer in her own
Mrs. McKinley came into his store
one day with a pat of delicious-look-
ing butter, and sald: “Mr. Paul, I
have some butter here I would like to
exchange for some other. You see, a
mouse fell into my sour cream jar
and drowned. TI took it right out and
the cream wasn’t hurt, but knowing
of the accident, I can’t eat the butter,
Won't you give me some in its place?
Other folks won’t know about the
_mouke, and what you don’t know
doesn’t hurt you.”
“I shouldn't like to disoblige an ola
customer,” Mr. Paul replied, and tak-
ing the butter, disappeared in the rear
of the store. There he carefully re-
wrapped the butter in another paper,
took it to the front, and handed it
to the woman.
rs. McKinley thanked him volubly,
and he said reflectively. “Yes, yes, it
is quite true that what you don’t know
doesn’t hurt you."—Capper’s Weekly.

Pet Cat Made Model
for Artist's Lioness
When Sir Willlam Richmond, the
artist, was a small boy his mother
took him to St. Paul's cathedral to
hear the singing, and he was disap-
pointed because everything was so
cald and colorless. He said to his
mother suddenly, “Perhaps one day I
shall decorate this place!” and we can
imagine how she smiled at the thought
of Willy coloring the walls with a bor
of chalks.
But the boy's dream came true, for
somebody else thought with him that
the interior of the cathedral needed
color and decoration, and in 1890
Richmond, then a famous painter, was
entrusted with the work of designing
mosaics to cover the roof of the choir.
The westernmost of the three sau-
cerdomes in the choir vaults repre-
sents the Creation of the Beasts.
Richmond had a favorite cat which
loved him so much that she used to
attend him even while he had his bath,
and when he got out she would crouch
down and lick his great toe adoringly.
She was not beautiful or valuable,
but the grace of her attitude so
charmed the artist that he decided to
use it in his great work. In a panel
near the Creation of the Beasts there
may be seen Adam between a lion and
lioness. The lions are so true to life
that when they were shown to a Zulu
chief he started and involuntarily
raised his hand to stab. But the
lioness is really a little tame cat lick-
ing her master’s foot.—London Times
Good Definitions, but
Not Dictionary Terms
Anyone can go to the dictionary for
definitions, but in no dictionary will
be found quite so good a definition of
“gossip” as that given by a child who
on being asked what the word meant,
said, “It's when nobody don’t do noth-
ing and somebody goes and tells
about it.”
Amid a collection of droll or witty
definitions accumulated from time to
time through newspaper reading, the
following seem worthy of repetition:
“Dandy”—*"a football for men and a
pincushion for women.” “Snoring”—
“Sleeping out loud.” “Bachelor”—"a
man who has lost the opportunity of
making some woman miserable.” “Ty-
rant”—*one who kills worms lest they
“Nothing”—*a bunghole without a
barrel around it.” ‘“Truth”—*‘“the only
thing that can’t be improved upon.”
“Polite interest”—*"listening to things
you know all about, told by one who
knows nothing about them.” ‘‘Canni-
bal”—“one who loves his fellowmen.” ]
“Caution”—*the dark lantern of en-
terprise.” “Smiles”—"“laughter’s pho-
Out of the Ordinary

versity college, Oxford, founded in
1050. The largest library, the Na-
tional, in Paris, contains more than
5,000,000 volumes. The largest thea-
ter is the Paris Opera house, covering
three acres. The largest bronze statue,
that of Peter the Great, in Leningrad,
weighs 1,100 tons. The biggest stone
statue is in Japan, 44 feet high. The
laruest college is in Cairo, with more
thn 15.000 students and 500 teachers.

Distance in Solar System
Take a farmer's tield and place in
it a two-foot globe to represent the
sun. In a circle 82 feet away is a
grain of mustard which represents
Mercury, the planet nearest the sun.
The earth is a pea 215 feet away, and
the planet Saturn is a small orange in
a circle two-fifths of a mile distant.
This is the astronomer Herchel’s il-
lustration of distance in the solar sys-
tem, so in a measure we can compre-
hend them. In reality Saturn is 886,
000,000 miles from the sun, compared
with the earth’s 93,000,000 miles. Even
when the earth is closest to Saturn
that planet is 793,000,000 miles away.

Parts of a Tree
When we look at a tree we can
recognize in its make-up three prin-
cipal parts. They are the roots, the
stem, and the crown. The roots com-
prise that part of a tree that is usu-
ally found below the ground, says the
American Tree association. Such
trees as the spruces, the hemlocks,
and the pines have roots that tend to
spread and lie close to the ground.
These shallow-rooted trees are, as a
rule, not windfirm. Other trees, such
as the hickories, the oaks, and the
walnuts develop a long taproot. These
trees are firmly anchored and rarely
Time to Laugh
Biftkins was suffering from liver
trouble and the doctor told him that if
he laughed fifteen minutes before each
meal his condition would improve, One
day in a restaurant, while Biffkins
was having his little laugh, a man at
the opposite table walked over to him
and said in an angry manner: “What
the dickens are you laughing at?”
“Why, I am laughing for my liver,”
said Biffkins.
“Well, then, I guess I had better
start laughing too. I ordered mine half
an hour ago.”—Pittsburgh Chronicle

“Animals are valuable property,
but are not children more so?” asked
Dr. Theodore B. Appel, Secretary of
Health. “It is a strange fact that in
the past years some citizens of Penn-

from a health standpoint in their
livestock than in their own children,”
continued Dr. Appel.
“As late as fifteen years ago Penn-
sylvania lost hundreds of thousands
of hogs and millions of dollars through
the ravages of hog cholera. The Ag-
