Grandma 8ays Th«n Is Bound to C*m* a Tim* In Ev*rj[ Girl's Lift When Sh« Wants to Put en · Woman's Clothes. · "1 am worried ahout^Sue Charlotte," observed Mrs. Bardnnkle. "She wants to be a young tady and wear corseta and a belt and high heels like Roberta Cubl«s, and 1 want her to be a girl for a while yet. and wear loose clothes and low heels, and be athletic snd rhlldllke.- "Oh. let the girl wear anything she ' wants to. 1 -' urged Roberta's grandma. "She will get tired ofbeinf a lady and ·want to be a.girl agalii before long. High heels and things look exciting a long way oft*, but as soon as a sensible girl tike Charlotte finds out that they hurt she Will have nothing more to do with them. "I remember how It was when I was . a girt 1 wanted corsets and belts find things that were ladylike and uncomfortable. But, of course, my mother wouldn't let me have any of them j snd I had to get them on the sly. i "Why, I can remember when the desire to wear those things was *o strong In me that 1 grabbed an old pair that. I found on a heap of discards. They weren't all there, but 1 . hugged them to my bosom, and what's -more. 1 put them on It was a struggle, for I was rather a stout girl and the . garment was designed for a more slender anj waspish waist than mine. I also found an old belt which I persuaded two stout girls to strap around me the way transfer men strap trunks. "Obe. day my mother saw me thus arrayed, my ample waist transformed Into what I . thought was something · waspish, and she almost fainted with : surprise besides exploding with amuse- · ment. I didn't mind the surprise, but the amusement wasn't what I wished to excite, so I took the things off and was glad to be comfortable once more." "I went through the same thing," observed Bardunkle, "with my first- collar, long pants and socks. They didn't have any boy's sixe collar.-* In my day, and I looked the town over trying to .find one. I think sli* 11 waa wha,t I . wanted and I had to compromise on size IB and celluloid at that, and the thing had a way of parting from the tl* la front. Stockings transformed Into socks were hard to manage, too, and they had; a way of coming down and . daagltog around my feet in spite of various Ingenious devices which I emr ployed to keep them up. Cuffs also Tcfswd to be vloletllke and protruded some six or seven Inches. "My afforta to be a man provided very fair comedy, but I persisted until 1 got a collar I conld not draw my head down through. It was a lady's collar that I pinned to the Inside of my coat ' collar. I was Indeed proud and happy oo that day. Socks,-however, are stilt ' a tragbear, and X will be glad when a sensible substitute is provided. . "»· I, too, say 1st the Kir! go ahead ud have a throw at the woman's game If she thinks It will be fun. She will sooo. get tired of it and chock the whoi* business." ',"Tm not so sure of It," replied Mrs. Banhinkto sadly. ^Ton haven't chucked th* manly cigars and tobacco yet" --Chicago New*., HISTORIC TOLLGATE IS GONE EM of Landmark In th* Shenandoah V«IUy Recalls an Interesting Civil War Story. The razing of the Hlllman tollgate house takes away a historic landmark In the lower Sh'enandoab. valley. It was constructed In 1840, before there were railroads In this srctlon, and It was a part of the thoroughfare from lennessee to Alexandria, Ta., and ?ften 20 to 30 wagons conld. be seen n a line making the trip to and from ie boats at Alexandria. The first ton was collected at gate So. 1 by Simeon Hlllman, and he con- Inned to collect toll until his death n I860. From 1860 to 1S82 the gate vas kepf by his widow. Charlotte Hill- nan, when, on account of war comli- :lons, the gate was abandoned until ISOB. The house was struck by a ;hell just before ths Battle of Kerns."own. ' . · It was at this gate that Charlotte 31tlman held up General Sheridan and its staff. Tbe general paid the regular oil for himself and his staff followed Us example. ' "But," said the general as he passed hrough, "I cannot vouch for my irmy." When the soldiers came op Mrs. Hlll- aan raised the pole, but stood at her K»t all day long and kept Jally and tfter the war she sent the bill to Washington and It was promptly paid. '· General Sheridan passed through his gate again on his famous ride from Winchester. Gen. Stonewall Jackson, a his valley campaign, frequently tagged through It always: paying toll. AY GOODBY TO DOUGHNUT NEW RECORDS 1 for your TALKING MACHINE Stracciari has sung. tbe "Prologue" c rom ''Pagiiacci-" for Columbia, and .the record ia one. of the moet -notable in ;he March group. The Chicago Opera 'jnritone displays admirable lightness and flexibility in tho introduction, followed by a fine exhibition of fervor and dramatic power in the tragic close. Altogether, it is a masterly and wholly satisfying performance of the famous number. "Liberty Bell, It's Time to Ring Again" is one of the songs which is loing its bit to help the nation "carry xa." The Peerle» Quartette has aung t for Columbia in fine harmony, and ,-ith a deep-toned bell accompaniment rhich adds greatly to the number 1 * effectiveness. The same record has an- sther utronz appeal to patriotism, in Arthur Fields' fine singinf of "Do SometKiug!" "Cleopatra Had a Jiuu Band," Sam Aah proclaims in lisping tenor tones, and the same Columbia record 'gives Gene Green's baritone echo,. "Alexander's Got a Jaza Band Now." Both songs are triumphs of rollicking ragtime melody, excellently sung. - Joseph C. Smith and hia dance orchestra make their Columbia debut with "Calicoco," fox trot, and "When You Come Back,"' one-step, in the March list of records. For » number of years one ol,the stage's leading, exponents of society dancing, Mr. Smith now heads an orchestra that plays dance znuarc as he thinks it ahouJdJpe played. This first record gives evidence ^ that his music is -as admirable anr Distinctive as his dancing.. One of the big eon* hits of this MS- SOD'S leading New Tcork musical HUC- cesa, "Jack . OTiantem," is "111 Take You Back to Italy," an it has been sung for Columbia by Elizabeth BricB and Charles King. The latter is now "with the colors/' . The yoicca of the famous vaudeville pair blend admirably id this lilting song of lore and homeland, through- which there runs a particularly haunting melody. Coupled with this number is a pleasing tenor duet, "My Heart'* Tonight in Old New Hampshire." sung by Campbell stud Burr. Greek Evan's bif baritone voice is heard in "That's a Mother'! Liberty Loan," one of the .most appealing of the new songs having wartime ncrifice as its theme. The tame Columbia record has "There is Green Hill Out in Flanders," sung s * tenor duet by Campbell and Burr.

Laiighroy Drug Co., F. H. Harroen- ing,. Conneusville; David C, Bason, Dimbar, and at the best drug store in every town and city in the country. One of the liveliest medley foj-troti if the aeuon h Columbui'a "Sillj Down Our Alley," contributed to Columbia's collection of dance records for March by Jocken Brothers. Coupled with it is "They Go Wild, Simply Wild, Over Me," a one-fltep in which the violin-piano duet introduce with brilliant effect "Pull the Cork Out of Old Erin," "Sweet Evangeline of Old Arody" and "Daniel in the Lion's Den." Thoroughly good music, the kind that bears hearing over and over again, is offered by Columbia in Lucy Gates' singing of Stephen Foster's well-loved song, "Massa's in De Cold, Cold Ground," accompanied by the Columbia Stellar Quartette. Equally plowing is the' coupled number, "Carry Mfl Back to Old Vinpnny," in which *« Bame artists are heard. Thos is the fate of the doughnut sealed. Mr. Hoover is known as a determined man who cannot be moved from a course which he thinks will serve the Interests of his- country. The statement, however, that the food administrator has a gnjge against the doughnnt will pain many who have .peculiarly strong fondness for It as an accompaniment of the morning meal, though Mr. Hoover's animns may arise from motives of patriotism, not prejudice. ' If the. government says the doughnut must go oat of BUT lives, then go It must But there will be some natural regret at parting with an old and fried friend. The donghout, like pie, has become a part of our common life. Many will find breakfast without sinkers an incomplete and unsatisfying repast But perhaps the abstinence will bring better digestion and more equable tempers.

Mary Roberts Hinehart, writing foi the American Magazine, says: "Back ot every success there Is some one person, or group of persons, unheralded and unsung, to whom much of tbe credit is due. My husband has stood squarely behind me, always. TIN -belief Jn me, his steadiness and his sanity and bis humor have kept me going, when, as has happened now and then--my little world of letters has | shaken under my feet "I sometimes think, if I were advising a young woman as to a career, that I should say: Tlrst pick yonr husband.' . ; "It Is Impossible to try to tell how 1 have attempted to reconcile my pri- Tate life -with my public work without mentioning my husband. Because, aft* er all. It requires two people, a map and a woman, to organize a home, and those two people roust be In accord. It has been a sort of family creed ot ours that we do things together. We have tried, because of tbe varied outside Interests that pnll hard, to keep tbe family life even more intact than the average. Differing widely as thfcs do, my husband's profession and my career, we have been compelled to work apart. Bnt we have relaxed rested and played together.

Domestic Wood for Walking Sticks. The United Kingdom lias long taken the lead in the manufacture of walk- Ing sticks, and a large proportion of the output war made of raw material" grown In the British isles, such as ash, chestnut, oak. and similar woods. The Importation of finished sticks has always been smull, but before the war n considerable amount of raw or partly finished material.was Imported, such as moTacca canes, ebony, wang- hees, roof bamboo, nilgherri, etc. Cherry sticks and what Is known as "Congo" -wood were formerly Imported from - Germany and Austria, where they ore grown. For a time after the outbreak of the war the su,.:ks on hand, both here and in neutral countries, met the demand, but; gradually the trade has become more dependent upon home-grown goods, arid consequently a greatly increased demand 'for domestic raw material has arisen.

Mixture of Alcohol and Benzol Haa Been Found to Be a Satisfactory Substitute. The high cost of gasoline is becoming such a problem thnt governments and scientists all over the world have attempted to find a sub.atltafe. In Germany, where gasoline Is almost unobtainable, it Is understood that a now mixture of alcohol and benzol has proved satisfactory. A ivritar in the Scientific American gives the following j table as an Indication of the results achieved: With one pnrt benzol nnd one part alcohol a touring car equipped with an ordinary carburetor mnde 42 miles an hour and run a distance of 4.GG miles upon one pint of the fuel. With ono part benzol and two parts alcohol the speed waa 41 miles and tbe distance covered 4.47 miles. This shaded Gown to 36 miles nn bour and 3,72 miles on a mixture of one part benzol nnd five parts alcohol. The some car, operated with pure benzol, acquired a speed of 42 milos an hour and ran a distance of 3.70 upon one pint of fncl. "With pore frusoHne it made 44 miles an hour, running 3.60 miles. Alcohol is easily obtainable, and ben- zol in large quantities Is now being distilled In both the/United States and German/ from coril tar. So the mixture, as worked out by the Germans, can be bad 'cheaper than gasoline, and the results nre almost as good. In the . case of Germany, the discovery has I been a boon of inestimable value. PROLIFIC CAUSE OF CANCER Prominent Surgeon Points Out Danger In Taking Too Hot Foods Into the Stomach, Dr. William J. Mayo of Rochester, Mirm-i now mujor In the United States nrmy, snys that 30 per ceut of all cancers of civilized mun are in the stomach, und this condition Is uncommon among primitive mea and animals. He believes that many such cancers .are caused by chronic ulceratlon of the stomach. Doctor Mayo told the national session of the Clinical Congress of Surgeons of North America that men had cancer of the stomuch more frequently thnn women because man is in the habit of taklug his food hotter than the average woman takes hers. Woman sits at the foot of the table and pours the tea and coffee, serving the men of the household first and drinking hers after It has cooled somewhat. Among the Chinese the same rule holds good of eating rice, fur the women eat at tbe second table. Doctor Mayo said food . and drink should not be taken into tbe stomuch hotter than can be borne comfortably in the mouth, for the mouth has sensitive nerves expressly to protect thi doorway to the body, while the stomach has.not. v Peculiarities of Birdrnen.
