It t» most nufovtAiaate that the attempt to raise $10,000 with which to, purchasoand ^condition Washington'* Will n,t I'erryopoHa did not achieve tho SUCCC66 that was hoped. That only approximately 1.200 was actually ro- L-oivetd In cafh does not reflect very creditably upon tho patriotism of the peop-le of Pityetto coiinty and elsewhere who manifested eomo degree of Interest but not sufficient to cause tho t u n d to grow to the amount required. Many refused entirely to bo stirred to share in tho work of raising the fund, or even to display any interest in the object that was bought to bo achieved. Tho subscriptions having boemmade and received upon the express condition that th«y would bo returned in case tho tot il amount was not subscribed by tue close of December 31, leaves no alter native'but to fulfill this condition. Howard Adame, cashier of the First National Dank o£ Perry- opollB,, was made custodian oE tho f u n d , rather against his inclinations, but he stipulated tho condition upon wh-ieh he would act in that capacity. Onco BO designated he. has performed his duU-os w i t h utmost fidelity and at considerable expenditure of time and effort. Ho'eote that his word has been pledged to each subscriber to the fund and that hln duty under the present circumstances la to return the subscriptions.. In this attitude Mr. Adams is (precisely right. Had the fund boon raised by unconditional subscriptions ho would properly feel himself authorised to -continue as custodian. Only by express permission of the subscribers, given in writing, would ho now bo warranted iu retaining tho subscriptions as Uii] neclous of a larger fund to be raised later or by other moans. Under tho circumstances It might bo desirable to request snch authority from the subscribers, many of whom would doWMless give It willingly, pending UK- receipt of which Mr. Adams could defer making distribution tti aeomlanco with the condition uruler which ho received the eubscrlp- tions. Tho publicity given the project during recent months has brought this historic relic of our first President to the attention of many people who otherwise may never have known of- its existence. There Is considerable HCtitinient favoring its! pieservation, but the people ha\ o not yet boon aroused to action that would make this possililo to bo accomplished. Tho facL that a small part o£ tho money ha» boon raised will of Hselt be an incontl.'o to continue the effort. In event that the State Historical Commission c-wild be interested, tho existence of the f u n d would servo to omphoiyizo the imiportan-oo of tho pro- |oct and might be h e l p f u l Jn securing b'tato aid. It is hopod. however, that a way may be d vised whereby thU siplemlUl relic may be preserved for future fcouoratiore. The efforts of 'Air. Adams should nc-t bo allowed to go for naught, Hit there should be an awakenln-; by more people in ordor that prflior appreciation bo shown him for his, labor o-f love. DELITfQUENIL 1 KlECEITEBS OF SEALS. The fact that then- are upwards of 200 parsons In tho city who have not remitted ffar the Christmas Sals f-ent to them by the chairman of the Health and Hygiene Committee of tho "Woman's Culture Club, j\v have not acknowledged tho of the loiters, is explainable on s vcral grounds. In tho first place, neglect or over- bleht will account for tho failure in perhaps the larger uumbof of cases. The envelopes cont ilaing fho Seals were roc'civod with other mail, lafd aside and perhaps forgotten, notwithstanding the Intention of the recipient to malre remittance promptly. Not until attention Is tailed to the no- Kleot Will they be reminded of their failure to remit. Other persons, wiio may have intended to make pin uhaso of Seals at othox- places In tin city, may have been disposed to rosent the method employed to bring tho matter to t b f - i r attention, and dee Mod they would take their own timo in mnkin^ response, or In sending remittance. Still others may have p, vined tho impression that tho Seal- wove being d1o- tribuled without ch.irgo, henoo did not realize that they sverc expected lo mako payment for them. There may have been other reasons but tho foregoing rover most of I he delinquencies whlc 1 ' are occasioning somo.Jnconvonlencf and no little con- cern'to the chairman of the committee. The Seals sent to the committal) aro charged ,agalnt t tho local organization, hence hav» to bo accounted for In cash to the central distributing agency. It Is necessary that all persons who wore f.iyored by tho dia- trlbuUon should Make prompt MI- tlumont. It Is pro timed they will do so when the need for uetioa is b r o u g h t to their attention. The method employed In the distribution was thought would be a convenience and would nave the recipients the trouble of making a purchase elsewhere. Just as much forethought should now be shown In making prompt re'urn to the committee in order that the accounts may bo closed and a complete report made.

Beauty Standards In Women Differ Ail Over the WorW Standards Of beauty, according to Lady TJrmamond-Hay, writing in Tho Mentor Mazaglno, differ all over the world and, ae the modern Wc«lern woman knows to her cost, with her decade. In Morocco a bride i deliberately fatten-ed up with 'all sorts of "beauty-foods," mostly cer.eale, milk and dfttes; in New Ireland in the South Seas they will keep a girl liter- a41y yearti to make her p l u m p enough for loveliness according to the local «tandard. I have seen "fat" beauties in tho Near East and the utterly flat, unfemlulne-looking womanhood o£ China, whoro curves are regarded «e the height of immodesty. Chinese women strap down thfctr breasts from girlhood, in every way suppressing any euggestion of femininity. Japanese women pin their faith to hot bathe and massage to keep the slim figure, for in Japan, ae in China, there is no place Cor th® plump. Care of tho hair is an Inexhaustible subject,' tho JMdmo lady Ufios reindeer marrow for pomatum; in Fiji they use ficentetl oil and the gum of the breadfruit treo as a kind of «tilf- oii cr; in the Society luland-u ol the South Seae, where burnt coral eerveB as hair dye, there is even a god of hair-tlredfiors, Totoropotaa its hln name. Tho Japanefie woman, whoso coili'ui'OB tell the history of her life and status, sleeps on. a wooden pillow in order not to disturb tho arrangement which takes houre to achieve, as* I knqw lo my cost, having waited "my turn" in a Japanese hairdroFfcer'b shop.

Important changes already are announced for the He-Date t tie to resignations, and It would no( be surprising to see- other changes as a result (jT the primaries and llnaJ elections in Nove7iiber.

' ' Then there aro Bomo govei norshi)) battles which hare a i atloual slgni- iicanco.

Governor Rocuevelt i'ncea a test in New York sUite. But national interes- will be centered chlelly on the Congrossional ·election. All the nv mlwra of the I-foiibe, of courao, must a-Hlicr retire or be candidates for re-el jetton whiles iu the Benato only one-Ur.«l of the membership changa every two years. The House is to be the 1 dltloground of tha Democrats for lh»y t h i n k they have on opportunity o£ repeating what happened in 19-10 Th ro aro Republicans who think that .ome seats will be lost but they do no 1 believe it will mean any change ot control. Representative Garner of Txas is already trying to split the Republican ranks by bringing about a coalition on the tariff between DemocrUB and insurgent Republicans. Thus far President Hoover lias not had a real test -with Congress but the House has stood by him in such skirmishes as have occurred. The special session was a fiasco only in the sense that tariff tegis! itioii fell by the wayside, but the passage of the Federal Farm Act alone -vlll bo regarded by historians as worth calling tho session. The Federal Farm Board is being attacked from -various aldeu but at present -writing it looks doubtful whether the agricultural question will loom as large in tho 1030 campaign as it has in tho past. Prohibition will probably bo the most conspicuous issue In the eastern states with an emphasis on tariff iu- aauiUes la tho western states. In most instances, aowover, tha one national issue which will run through tho campaign in a'H sections will bo the record of President Hoover. Tho Republicans will endeavor to retain control on the basis of Mr. Hoover's accomplishments. The Democrats, on tho other hand, do wt concede that Mr. Hoover has done anything of note. They are not yet re; dy to accept the Federal Farm Act as a success, but it 'Is not likely that t h e y will discuss that, legislation as much as they will other alleged failure-, on the administrative side. The Doi locratic drya, for example, will use very bit of ammunition furnished them by Senator Borah and his colleagues who charge that the Hoovor ac ministration has been weak in regtv d to prohibition enforcement. If the economic depression should result ir much unemployment the DcmocratH will contend that President Hoover di 1 not act promptly enough to stop speculation. The thing which turned the Republicans out oC tho House in 1010 was the high cobt of In inK-- an economic issue 1 -. If uncmploynenl ov unsettled conditions should bucomo widespread during 1030 the Oemocrals would naturally got the bandit of such discontent as arises. J t he-comus all the more important, (I erctore, that the efforts madQ by the President recently to readjust the e lonomlc situation should from his viewpoint become ef- f"cUve ( ln the J l r b l ' f l x months o£ 1030. Mr. Hoover will also depend to no small extent on th j achievements oC i the forthcoming Lo idon naval confcr- j ence.
