The new pieces are so different from the gaudy creations of other years that they will dress up your lawn or porch within an Inch of its life. Replacing the old-time wicker furniture, the wood trend Is not only more attractive, but " far more practical. No more squeak- Ing, no warping and no more sagging Sparkling and summery, the while pieces fit perfectly into nature's background of trees and flowers, or into your own of gay rugs and accessories. One store shows three groups (Uuiy tall the orchard group. The first set has a novel fruit cut-out design on the backs of the chairs and settee. A table Is included, and nothing could make a- prettier picture than afternoon tea served oil it in tall white glasses . decorated with • a fruit motif painted In brilliant colors. , v Comforl in Iron Chairs Another lias a graceful arched treatment on tile table and chairs.

Designers have for some lime been working on the Idea of wrought Iron furniture that Is comfortable. Tliat idea is now u realization, and the result Is attractive sets that have a real comfort achieved through a perfect curvature in the chair backs ami seats. And they have originated n slight spring hi the chair seals, so that much lo your surprise you don't bounce up in the air upon silling, but actually sink down. Because these sets arc slender- ly conslructed, they have a fragile period atmosphere lhat makes them unusually npprqpriale for the lawn of homes designed on classic period lines. One group In particular stands out. It Is a wrought Iron symphony. Each chjiir back has a certain musical motif—a violin, trumpet, bells, staff and notes. if you like a rustic loucli, the new .rattan furniture will more than -please you. Tt is very similar to bamboo, except lhat il is solid, whereas the oilier Is liol- Eti'lped or solid fiesta colors mak them brilliantly (jay.

Infantile Reversion j Called Not Uncommon CLEVELAND (UP)—Dr. Guy H. Williams, superintendent of the Cleveland Stale hospital for' 'the insane, says cases of infantile reversion are not uncommon among patients at the institution. Dr. Williams commented on an article in the Virginia Medical Monthly, which told the story recently of a 61-year-old woman who assumed the mannerisms of a child and died four' years latcf, babbling like an infant. "This," says Dr. Williams, "was evidently a case of schizophrenia, which means 'a splitting ol the mind.'. "Ot course, what is commonly known as senile dementia in very old people is usual," he said. "But a condition such as that reported in the Virginia case may sometimes be a kind of dementia praecox. Such cases are not of senile group." the I'M A ONE SOAP WOMAN SINCE I LEARNED ABOUT LIFEBUOY FOR BATH AND.

Home Electric Plants Solve Problem Where Lines Do Not Reach Sufficient nnd proper lighting on the modern farm is no longer luxury, but n necessity. Besides the nuiny obvious advantages, proper lighting removes the real and constant danger ol cyeslraln. So many farm ctiorcs nrc performed during the dark hours of early evening or the darker hours before dawn tliat Llie eyes of farmers and farm liands frequently suffer permanent injury from eycstraiu, Tliere are several good systems of farm lighting, among which arc Individual electric power piants where distribution circuits of lighting companies are not available. Ordinarily, small electric power plants are equipped with storage batteries. Where they arc provided for stand-by service, tlic plant needs to be operated only at Intervals to have current available at all times. Two electric iiower systems are. generally marketed at present for private installation, the 110-volt system and the 30-volt system. Most manufacturers handle both. Tlie 30-volt system involves no danger of electric shock In case of contact with the wires. It requires a larger current than for the liovolt system in order to supply the same amount of |»wer to lamps, motors and other current-consuming appliances. Special wiring and fixtures rot commonly and widely manufactured also arc required. The 110-volt system permits the use of less expensive wiring and equipment and also makes possible the transfer to public service dis- tiibulton circuits with practically no change when the power company's wires read) the farm. Lighting la only one of the advantages of electricity on the, farm. It provides power for oper- j atlng a large number of electrical I devices such as washing machines,! churns, cream separators, milking machines and water systems. In several ways, an electrically °P erate d water system Is the most ; 'mportant Improvement mnde pos- m« stale by the Installation of a i>rl- i'ate power plant: An electric pump is always available for instant service. To all Its other conveniences,' it adds the clement of safety because it makes possible the quick extlnqiiislilng of a fire before It gains headway. .And Tire Is still one of tlie gravest dangers to which a farmer's home and barns arc -subject. When a farmer obtains a modernization loan for the purpose of; Installing an electric power plant, he gets his money's worth in greater convenience, greater safety nnd increased farm efficiency. . Choose location Property should be accessible to suitable employment areas, market, centers, schools, and recreational facilities. Adequate and convenient means of transportation at reasonable cost should be available. Home Shows Develop Much New Business WASHINGTON, D.
