A deep cut above the left eye had been closed by two surgical clips, he reported, and the left eyelid showed red bruises. Death was declared to have followed a 24-hour illness during which Healy Was vonculsed by vomiting attacks. •Healy, 41 years old. was the originator of theatrical "stooges." these bewildered fellows who bob up in the audience or out from the wings to cause general confusion.

Here the boxes, mail chutes, stamp, general delivery, parcel post, postal savings, information and money order windows all face an open air portico around the building. Local officials had a struggle to get this kind of postoffice but finally convinced the postoffice department that mild climate would make it a success. It has.

Note how reflecting surfaces, the light walls, the bed spread, the white dress, soften and brighten the shadows. Exposure 1/10 second at f.8. D O not ff;c:l, fellow snapaliooters, that just because the sun stays out of doors you cannot make sunlight pictures inside. \Vli'rever .sunlight streams through a window, there is a setting for a. picture, ofte.n an extremely good picture, because of the play of light and shadow from the window- framing ami curtains. [n n light-walled room, especially on" \viih plain pl.istdr walla or puUernl.-33 wallpaper, the shadows iu sni-h an Indoor-sunlight picture have a Hoft, luminous (|Ua!ity which Kivea the prints unusual delicacy and appeal. However, unless It is a sun-room that has windows facing in several directions, it Is neces- sary to aid the shadow illumination with reflectors. These can be white sheets or pillowcases draped over a chair, white cardboard or blotter-paper, or anything else that will pick up the sunlight and cast it toward the subject's shadow side. In addition, the light maf be pleasingly softened by a close-mesh window curtain through which the sunbeams pass. With such a difftiscr, exposure should be about double what you would glvu outside in the sun. The sunlight should come from above, slanting downward upon the subject and amateur floodlight bulbs can be used to soften shadows where reflectors are insufficient. John van Guilder.
