Yet, that's what . Ted said vhen he-observed, through a window, a pair (boy and girl) kissing. The article said the scene was rather amusing. '"The man," said the story, "was evidently as diffident and shy as a newspaper man with! the sheriff after him. . . She, well, if he was her best beau . . . was taking lessons." . . . And they did not seem to disagree with her. Their* profiles were as clearly drawn on the closed blinds as silhouettes or cameos, and their every movement was made as plain as pictures thrown from a magic lantern." . . . The two chairs had been drawn side by side, and the lovers were looking closely into each other's eyes when the climax came . . . and he kissed her." The following year, Venetian ?? blinds were the rage. SUNDAY MOVIES? .According to this paper, nothing could be sold on Sunday except medicine . . in Alabama, that is. Headlined "A Sunday Law", the article said: "A few days ago the city council passed a very strict Sunday law prohibiting all sorts of business and traffic over which the city has jurisdiction except the sale of medicine." Reading further, it was discovered that only one place of business flaunted the ordinance -- a newspaper, The Daily Age. They sold papers. It was to be a test case. OLD FASHIONED tetanus shots for Jock-jaw? Ridiculous! To cure lockjaw in 1885 all you needed was a dram of turpentine, according to a news story. "Let anyone who has an attack of lockjaw take a small quantity of turpentine, warm it and pour it on the wound, no matter where the wound is, and relief wiil follow in less than a minute." . . . Turpentine is also a most certain remedy for croup . . . and nothing better can be applied to a severe cut or bruise." At the end of this story was, what is known in newspaper language. a filler. It read: Clara Louise Kellogg is to "receive $12,000 for singing twenty nights in Paris -- §600 a night! No wonder she is in love with Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup, the great remedy for coughs and colds, for what would she do without it, if she should be .attacked suddenly by hoarseness? The 512,000 was practically tax free, including medicine. I just can't eat when it's rainy "You would hardly believe it,' says a prominent New York restaurant owner, "but when it ^ our receipts are a third less than on a fine day.'.' ". . . A n d on inquiry I have ascertained that the rain does not prevent them from coming down to their places of business. They don't send out for their dinner or lunch, for then we would not suffer fit the receipts . . . t h e only explanaion I can think of is that rainy weather affects their appetites, and that they do not experience the same desire to eat as on a fine day." l 1885, The Robesonian was edited by Wallace McDiarmid and subscription rates were $2 a year, cash in advance. Editor McDiarmid carried in his paper news from the Red Springs section under the heading "Red Springs Dots." One dot read: "We had a slight of hand p*r- formance in town last night, and it was a slight, he only made eight dollars and his tax was five dollars." Another dot said: "One of the largest hogs died here this weekend. It was said to weigh 450 pounds, raised in the woods. Advertising messages in the 1885's might be regarded a bit drastic to the 1954 readers, but at least they were descriptive. For instance: "The tusks of a mastadon recently found in Illinois weighed 175 pounds each. What a gigantic toothache that animal must have been capable of having!

A new and luxurious version of a familiar long-haired fur makes this skillfully shaped figure-eight stole, which hugs the shoulders, is correct for day or night; budget priced. By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Fashion Editor What every woman knows': The 'little fur" is one of the most useful and versatile items in her wardrobe. This year designers have outdone themselves in dreaming up new ideas, new colors and new treatments of old favorites in those small stoles, boleros, collar-and- muff sets and blouson jackets HONEY SQUIRREL . . . An old favorite with a new complexion, this sleek fur is used in a versatile tie-stole, small enough for the petite woman, budget priced. LET-OUT MUSKRAT . , . Proportioned for th« small figure and priced for Ihe modest budget, this snug stole has new cowl effect. AJ1 designed by Georges Henri. which women can wear the year round, day or night. These small furs come 1 in all pelts .and all colors. Newcomers this season are such things as pink mink, pink .beaver and blue ermine. But the furs priced within the budget of the average woman include such things as blond skunk, honey-colored squirrel and let-out miiskrat. Used in imaginative lit- tle stoles, these furs are effectively worn with suits in spring and fall, or as evening wraps in sum- mei.' And many are priced so gently as to be within reach of the thrifty career girl or young wife who has to watch her pennies PaiUcularly popular for fall is the fur blouson, which is a little jacket with a drawstring waistline or belt, cut on much the same lines as the famous Eisenhower jacket of World War ' n.

This is why all our hearts she has won. Ever alert, her strength to exert, In any good project begun. So. here 's to friend Daisy, Who never is lazy. May her birthday be a happy one.
