LO KIN (Continued jffjjttt fa«e One) for People Who Sweeten Life last Will and testament of the late William M. Carson -1 contains a neat and painless little sermon for all of us. Mr. Carson was a wealthy San Francisco business mail >vho, when it Came.time for him to die, had neither chick nor "tihild to leave hjs money to. He owned some $.1.800,000 worth of this world's goods, and he didn't quite like the idea of handing it all in .a lump to some impersonal philanthropic ortran- ' ization. So when he sat down to make out his will he simply wrote the names of everybody who had been kind to him, everybody --jvhose courtesy, efficiency or helpfulness had made his life a little pleasanter—and divided his bequests among all of them. * * * ,,34 people who worked for him all got bequests. The , maids, janitors, bellhops, waiters and elevator boys at his -hotel got bequests; so did the employes of the country club vvhere he had played golf, people in the hospitals where he Jjad been a patient, the church he attended, the university "from which he had been graduated, and so on. Altogether, more than 10 Opeople were named in hi.s will, for amounts varying from $500 to $10,000. There is a sort of moving picture romanticism about this Will, of course, and earnest thinkers will no doubt say that the money would have "done more good" if it had all gone to some worthy cause. But there is .a lot to be said for the idea of doing something to repay all the people who had helped to make life run -more smoothly and happily. For all of us, as we travel on toward the graves that await us, carry with us debts just like those which this millionaire paid in his will. We don't often stop to think about them, but they evjst. It's .a good idea to stop and tabulate them once in a while. ' Lffe consists of an infinite number of small human contacts. A man may consider himself utterly friendless and ajone—ry.et this ability to get his work done, to sleep well at night, to maintain a smooth temper, even to enjoy his meals properly, depends in no small measure on the people with whom he makes these contacts. • •' ••'•'-. * * * IMAGINE what a miserable day you would put in if, some 1 -morning, you should find all of these people falling down on their jobs; if their pleasant efficiency should be replace'd by grumpiness, -slovenliness and laxity. ,. " Corner cop,,street car conductor, filling station attendant, phone girl, Lunchroom waitress, man-at-the-next-desk, apart- ,ment house janitor, mailman, store clerk—all together, they could ruin ..your day beyond repair; in a week they could drive you crazy. We don't have millions to give away when we die, and even if we did few of us would give them as this San Franciscan did. But it won't hurt us to remember that we carry those debts with us. Mostly cagey, cautious. But hefe was money actually in hand, far Tiore than he needed. He could ?o ahead, fit once, with a •hat had intrigued him for almost i year. Mis scientist's mind Was :licking delightfully now. Me gave immediate thought to organising .he party Which would explore the :lift dwelling in the Montezuma •nountain range. "We'll need n cook," he reasoned. "I'll go see old three Horses." Three Morses was an Indian who seemed to have lived forever, ind who loafed eternally now iround the village of Blanco Canyon. He was wise in his way. "Need good cook," Bob Barry explained, patiently. "You ketch- jm me good cook, Three Horses. Savvy? Cook beans, bread, meat, everything outdoors. Me go long :amping trip. You savvy? You -,end me Indian who can cook .vhite man's grub. All right?" Three Horses wouldn't be •ushed. He had to be primed with i cigar, a bag of candy, and the purple silk neckerchief which Bob vvore jauntily around his collar. But in the end he promised. "Have the cook come to my shack over there," Bob pointed toward the distant hills. "And next time I see you, it's a dollar for-you. Good cook. -White man's grub. Hurry." Bob next thought to begin buying provisions, but he decided to svait. Maybe this .fellow Lane would have some ideas. At any rate he would be 'the financial backer, with a half interest in the sntire proceeding. Courtesy at least demanded that he be consulted, since he was due so soon. ' * i :> ROB spent the remaining hour wondering what sorfi of fellow Lane would be. His letter sounded a trifle—well, youngish. Hope the man isn't a dudish .type. Or spoiled fich. That wouldn't do so well in th.6 outdoors. Bob wanted a partner who could work up au energy as Well as an enthusiasm for this exploration trip. That old cliff dwellings—a remarkable prehistoric castle up 600 feet on the sheer side of a iock wall—was probably the most important ruin in North America. It would take long, lonely weeks, but Bob felt that he might excavate it thoroughly and solve the age-old problem of what became of the cliff people. They were, indeed* a forgotten race, a lost kingdom. No scientist knew what became of them. Any scientist would gain fame and wealth if he could learn the answer. It fascinated Robert Wilson Barry, called Bob, Dust down the highway heralded the coming of the motor bus, on time. Bob walked to the postofflce, where it would stop. The driver threw out a bag of mail,' and stood by the door to assist one passenger out. Bob strained to catch a first glimpse of his man, M. M, Lane. No man got off, however. Bob felt let down. He'd have to wait until next Saturday now, and he had been thoroughly aroused about it all. His face turned long in disappointment. But then the lone passenger, a girl, came up to him. "Pardon me," she addressed Bob, "but is there—a hotel? The town is much smaller than I expected." A suspicion instantly struck Bob! He glared at her, almost fiercely. He fumbled with his hat. "You— you—" he stammered, "What's your name?" She smiled, rather beautifully but in amused surprise too. "Why, it's Lane. I'm Mary Melissa Lane. I am looking for a Dr. Barry, my business partner."

A Medieval "Progress" • N interesting sidelight on the state of modern civilization is provided in a current bulletin published by the Building Trades Employers' Association of New York. Discussing structural design for New York buildings, this bulleti nremarks that architects henceforth must take into account the chance that their buildings will be subjected to airplane bombings. New buildings must have ^stronger roofs—both as a defens eagainst bombs, and to serve as mounts for anti-aircraft guns in case of need. • The association is undoubtedly correct in saying that this is a factor no New York architect can afford to ignore in the future; but what a commentary on the way in which modern civilization fails to provide ordinary peaceful security! We seem to be back in the middle ages once more, when houses had to be built for defense as well as for shelter. It is a profoundly dismaying thought. By DX.

Ail of these substances are dangerous because they contain poisons and may produce such serious irritation of the skin that the irritation will be much worse than the freckles. Liver spots, scientifically called chloasma, frequently appear in women without anay definite cause. These also represent a deposit of color pigments from the blood in the skin. They seem to be most often associated with disturbances of glands involved in childbirth. Sometimes they dis- j s not safe for anyone to attempt to peel away these liver spots by self- tratmtnt, because of the dangerous character of the substances that are used. . believed that Ireckjes will disappear | appear spontaneously. by rubbing them with dew that is on clover, fay bjitfcjflg the fece with buttermilk. by rubbing [hero with grass, with grapevine sap and lemon juice, with melon rind or water from an oak stump.

In suggesting books for our littlest children, it is difficult to list them, because here as elsewhere, the reader is likely to think that the best ones are at the top. Reverse the list, or begin in the middle, and you have precisely the same excellence of selection. As I shall be giving other lists this week for older .children, I suggest that this fact be kept in mind.

"A man can easily change his appear•nice by growing n beard, or snipping one off, or by putting on specs, or taking them off. And a woman, armed with compacts and lipsticks and s-uch. can change her looks even more easily ." ' • So it's the little habits and hobbies of the hunted that hc-lp the hawksha>ys most.

Mr. GLscnbcrg. who has reunited husbands and wives. brothers and sisters, mothers nnd .sons, hasn't been ;ible to find his uncles yet. Money Trouble Chlefl.v to Blame There are, according to the Skip Tracers Co. records, just about four reasons why men— and women and children— leave home. Unpaid bills are the chief reason. Folks are forever buying things they can't pay for and leaving home either because they are that -sort or because they have become suddenly financially embarrassed.
