Moseley of Bowling Green, O. He uses a unique method, in some respects not unlike 'that , of our own local weather experts, Charlie Mills and "Dux" j Brant. > i Prof. Moseley says that a study of the width of rings j shown by the yearly growth of trees, coupled with such j weather statistics as are available, permits forecasts for at least 90 years in advance. Tutting his theory in practice and applying it with emphasis to his home region along the Ohio river, lie explains that excessive rains and consequent floods run in cycles and that the Ohio river is now going through a seven-year flood cycle.! One of two floods are predicted prior to 31)43. after BTNOPSI3 Batty Gordon is at Hill HOUM for * vacation, at the instigation of her irlend. Rhoda. At Hill House Sally , •meets Mrs. Peake, tho proprietor, her : ,»on, Neal. and Rhoda. At dinner Sally meets the others: Mrs. Pcake's daugh- i ter. Josie; Coral Easton, In love with Meal; Mrs. Rutherford; her daughter, Pauline, also in love with Neal, and her son. Dr. Paul Rutherford. Mrs. Rutherford tells of a prowler she heard th3 night before. Bruce Orton, Joseph Barry and Duncan Abbot, Rhode's fiance, complete the household at the summer resort. That evening Sally overhears bits of a qiieer conversation in the garden. While Josie is telling Sally about "the spite fence" erected by Mrs. Peake's estranged sister. Miss Ivy Newcomb, near Hill House, Pauline Rutherford rushes in. CHAPTER SIX JOSIE AND I sprahg to our feet when Pauline so unceremoniously burst in. "Where's Neal?" she was still crying. T?hen: "Mother's awfully sick!" "Neal's in Bruce Orton's cottage. I'll get him." On fleet feet Josie sped away. I went to Pauline. "Can I help?" "She's terribly sick. I'm afraid— she'll—DIE." Her last word was a I wail. } "You mustn't give way, Pauline," I said sternly. "Let's go. Maybe I I can help." ' "They sent me out—told me to flnd Neal—not to come back." Her slight figure was trembling uncontrollably. Plainly the girl snap out of it,". I said harshly. "This is no time to play baby. You sit there until I come back." I rushed to my room, grabbed a glass and the bottle of brandy I which he says the river will hold below flood stage for at was least five years. It is possible that by that time the gov- I J must cut dee ? to kee ? her ernment's flood prevention program will be well advanced i mad^he/sit* _ so that, after 1943, the over-flow problem of that often-dev- | P"^ hed forward. astated region will be largely removed. »™««' "Beginning in 1J)4S," he predk-ts for the nation in general, "there will be copious rains for a year or more, then about the usual amount, or more, most of the time until 1QK7 T^ n ir.4-*,,, <- t -in-1 i . ,., , i always carry with me for emer- 195<.

From 19fiO until 197.1. the Moseley propheteering chart shows, no cistern should go dry "as nearly every year will be a wet one." So, no matter what the problems now, be comforted in the fact that there still will be rainfall in 1975. Even taxes cannot take it from us. PRAISE AND REGRET • A young French professor, working at the Rockefeller institute in New York, has announced discovery in the earth's top soil of "the most powerful germicide in the world." A pint of the dusty substance, lie reports, is said to drink as I dared and bade her i drink it. | She obeyed me unquestioningly, 1 and in a short time the faint color ; began to creep back into her pallid i cheeks. I "Now, you listen to me, Pauline [ Rutherford," I snapped sternly as j soon as her shaking ceased. "If j your mother is as sick as you say, i she may need you. Forget yourself and think only of her. You must. Come, we'« go to the cottage and see if there's anything we can do." She looked at me with a wan smile, squared her slender shoulders and rose to her feet.

Can't We Reconcile Opinions on Teeth? mine, through a door at the end onto a roofed way which connected the two cottages. The fog swirled around us in dank ghostliness. The mournful note of the foghorn smote my ears. I shivered as the chill wind bit through my thin garments. The first cottage was dark except for a light over the door which also lighted the covered way. The vapor. In the living room, Josie was standing with head bent in a listening attitude. She spoke quickly as we entered. "Neal's with Paul," she an- By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. -TWO OPINIONS have been advanced as to the reason for decay of teeth. The old one, of course, is well known. Our mothers and grandmothers taught us that we should brush our teeth twice a day; this ordinary form of cleanliness was eapposed to prevent germs from attacking the surface of the teeth. Of late it has been suggested Dr. Glendening will answer "- ^questions of general interest < only, and then only through ' 'his column. that strong teeth are made front .that the food we eat has to do with tooth health than nlinesB. And it has been rec- lended that minerals, such as urn, and vitamins, such as min C, are the real preventa- of dental decay, r.can not these two different reconciled? Certainly the ith of the teeth is important and ^'amount of trouble should be too to accomplish that end. Why M both internal and external B?

There isn't anything we can do. but Paul said for me to stay here, there might be some errand they'd want done in a hurry." "Do you suppose she's better?" asked Pauline, wistfully. Her snippy truculence was gone. I found myself really liking the girl. plest. The basis of most of them is j Sn . e did Jove her mother and wasn't powdered chalk. We can recommend the following: Prepared chalk 2 ounces Powdered orris root.. 2 ounces Pumice stone 1 ounce The actual technique of brushing ashamed to show it. Josie shook her head. "I don't know, Pauline. But I'm sure that with two such doctors as Paul and Neal they'll pull her through if it's possible." the teeth is quite as important as i Pauline sighed and, walking over ' j to the window, stood looking out I into the night. The curtain was not f drawn Looking into the thick the dentifrice used. Like Painting a Fence When you start in the morning to brush your teeth, consider them as so many pickets of a white fence and suppose you are going to paint the fence. Brush your teeth in the same orderly manner. Start at the extreme right hand corner of the upper jaw and, with your tooth brush, brush the teeth as if painting the fence; go over everything, front, back and sides. Go slowly around the front of the upper set of teeth, then turn around and go \ slowly back behind until you return to the place where you started from. Then start downstairs and do the same thing with the lower set, front and back. The motion of the tooth brush should be rotary. Dig bristles in and keep your hand moving so that the interstices between the teeth are cleaned out. The tooth brush should be small so that the bristles will fit in the mouth and make no trouble when you engage any irregular tooth. The child should learn to do this at the very earliest period of his life, and you may be assured that any time used in teaching this procedure will not be wasted.

How long she stood there I do not know. Neal's entrance broke the long silence. "Josie, we need these things at once. Will youygo to the drug store for them?" He handed her a list »a he spoke, and turned back to Menus of the Day "Tliis is to be kept a secret. Mother was poisoned!" the door. But Pauline's hand was on his arm. "How is she ? Will she get better? You must tell me—you must!" she cried, as Neal hesitated. "I think so, Pauline. Don't lose your courage. She's been terribly sick, but she's a little easier now. I mustn't stop. I'll send Paul out to you as soon as he can leave your mother." "Is there something—anything— that I can do?" she pleaded. "I feel so useless." "Yes, go with Josie for those things." He was gone with his last word. But Pauline would not leave the cottage. I didn't blame her. It was cruel to even suggest her doing so. Suppose something happened while she was gone? In the end I was the one who went with Josie. I'll never forget that ride. On the way f the parking space'we met Bruce Orton. "I've been hanging around hoping there would be something I can do," he said. "I told Neal that, as I'm riot a doctor, I wouldn't butt in, but if he wanted anything which I could do for him to whistle and I'd hear him." "We're going to the drug store for some things," Josie hurriedly explained. "Take my car," he offered. "It's easier to manage than either of yours." "I wouldn't dare," Josie said. I'm not an expert driver,, anyway." As she spoke she led the way to a great lumbering old car which I would have hesitated to drive, and I've been handling a wheel for years. "You're not going to drive that thing," I gasped. "The only other car we have is the beach wagon, and that has soft tires for the sand," she explained. "I'll drive," I said. "I've never driven in the fog and I don't know the way, but if you'll tell me just when to turn and so forth, we'll get there." As I spoke I sprang Into little old Bouncy and stepped on the starter. Her instantaneous response was heartening. That little car never .has refused to do her duty yet, and I can almost make her sit up on her hind legs—wheels—and beg. Josie hesitated a bit, but I got my own way. That darned old white elephant of a Cadillac would require the strength of ten men to change a tire, and I wasn't feeling giantish if a flat happened at that hour. I'll never forget that ride. I'd driven in a blinding snowstorm several times, and I had thought ',4 teaspoon Halt tloner's augar i Cream the butter. Add the | ! sugar, vanilla, salt, nuts, dates j : and flour.

I couldn't tell where the sides of the road were, whether we were on a straight-away or on a sharp curve. Only by constant attention, careful creeping on and on, did I finally make the drug store in Win- netaumet village. Josie was not long inside. Fortunately the things which were wanted were all in stock, and in less than five minutes from the time I braked to a stop we were again on dur way. The return trip wasn't so hard. Whether my courage was returning 1 or whether some sixth sense takea charge in a smothering fog, I don't know; but it seemed no time at all before we rolled through the gate of Hill House. When we entered the living room of the Rutherford cottage, •it was to find two angry, disgruntled men confronting Pauline, who was almost in tears. "I tell you I didn't leave the room at all." she was saying. "And what matter if I had? You oulcln't let me help. I might as well have been ten miles away." "Forget all that, sis." Paul spoke roughly. "You must have left the room sometime while Josie and Miss Gordon were gone." He ig nored our return. All his attention Was concentrated on his sister. "I tell you I did not!" Pauline was angry now. "Not for one—" She stopped, clapped her hand over her mouth and looked with stricken eyes at Paul. "I did go out," she whispered. "I felt so awful I went to the bathroom and bathed my face with cold water as soon as Josie and Sally left." "That's the answer, Neal." Paul swung on his heel and looked at Neal, who nodded soberly in return. Paul reached out and took Josie's bundle. "We'll take another look at mother; then we'll, come back here and talk to you girls. Wait for us." Pauline looked at us deflantely as the men went out. "Mother Is much better. Paul says she will get well. But I think he has gone completely whacky!" • Before we could reply Dr. Paul and Neal returned. They drew us into a close huddle and Dr. Paul said: "This is to be kept a secret Mother was poisoned. She was cold when we came in from our drive, so I poured her a small drink from my whiskey bottle. She drank it and was immediately taken sick. Neal and I have saved her. But the point Is, the poison was not Intended for her. It was mean}: for me. (To Be Continued) JliilKROGER; ing for a week in Grand Rapids. 5 Years Ago Mr. and Mrs. Charles R.
