What, No Ice? NEWS OF THE COURTS Letters ol administration were granted by Register Bruce F. Sterling to B. M. Wade, Perryopolis, on the estate ol Melissa Carson, Perry township, who died January 2. Personal estate amounted to SI0,000 while real estate includes a one-sixth interest in about 50 acres of ground in Perry township. Philip McClanahan, administrator of the estate of Hairy R. Fisher, de- censed, filed suit against National Casualty Company to secure payment o£ $500, with interest from March 15, 1938, allegedly due on an insurance policy in which the ]ate Mr. Fisher's mother, Mrs. Rachel E. Fisher, was named beneficiary. The mother died October 19, 3937, and the son died January 9, 1938, of mj uries suffered the day previous when he was struck on Route 51 by a machine operated by James Tiscot, Perry township.

Horewitz Gives Roiarians Some Legal Facts Members of the Rotary Club were ttiven an insight into what the legal profession is doing m the way of service to litigants and the people at large in a discussion at the weekly luncheon Thursdny by Attorney Jacob E. Horewitz. Mr. Horewitz devoted much of h i _ time to the work of the American Law Institute, which was organized m 1923 by Ehhu Root and which ha been engaged since in -what Mi. Horewitz described as a "prodigious task/' embracing condification oC laws. As example of the magnitude he cited 10 years devoted to one branch, contracts, now complete and in book form. Some time was given by Mr. Horewitz to legal aid societies, which seek to facilitate the work of the courts and the interests oC litogants by voluntary aid. Three such societies exist in Pennsylvania -- in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Heading. The organizations, throughout the country, handled 273.000 civil cases in 1935, in addition to thousands of criminal cases. The legal profession also extends its aid toward settlement of disputes Jury, returning a verdict to Judge | H. S. Dumbauld, refused to award | damages to John and Anna Phillips, ' North Union township, in the orop- erty dispute with their neighbors, Samuel and Susie Kukura. According to the statement of claim, the premises of the Kukura family, situated on Pittsburgh road, were decidedly lower than that of the Phillips family and, as a result, became the catch all for rain water and other surface waters. To counteract tills,' the Kukuras, it was charged, dug a 60-foot long ditch or trench on the Phillips' irop- erly -when turned the tables and sent the water, at times, swirling .in the opposite direction to swamp the neighbors' land. The plaintiffs sought S500 damages. The jury, borrowing a phrase from criminal courts in its veidict, found Samuel and Susie Kukura "not giiilty." Compulsory non-suit, award to the plaintiff and a finding for a defendant were disclosed in verdicts returned to climax trials in civil cases in Fayette county courts. The compulsory non-suit ended action instituted by John Bradley, this city, against A. Lindsey Craig and D. Armour Craig, trading and doing business here as A. S. Craig and Sons. Bradley sought to obtain $10,000 damages as the result of a collision November 11, 1935, in East Main street, when his car crashed a truck belonging to the defendants. In the suit of Robert L. Werner, 119 South Eighth street, Connells- viile against J. Harold Richey, 504 Eleanor avenue, Scottdale, the jury found for the defendant. The case was the outgrowth of an automobile accident December 8, 1937, on the Old Connellsville road, for 'which the plaintiff asked damages in the amount of S238.24. Frank D. Mosser, trading as Uniontown Sanitary Dairy, defendant, was directed to pay the plaintiff Citizens National Bank of Meyersdale, the sum of $1,229.34. Tne amount involved represented a $1,050 promissory note, signed March 5, 1935 by the defendant, with interest in the sum of $229.34. Mortgage in the amount ot $6,900 was oidered restored in county records by Judge W. Russell Carr in an order handed down in the suit entered by Peoples City Bank against Ralph Renzc or HafTurle Renzi, Teresa Hen/.c and George H. Smith, receiver of Union National Bank, Conncllbvillc. The court declaicd null and void the satisfaction, dated December 14, 1934, acknow.edging payment in full of the mortgage executed by Ralph Renzc, Teresa Renze, Luigi Capo and Rosa Capo, mortgagors, to Peoples C:ty Bank, mortgagee. The order, rectifying the mistake, set forth: "That satisfacton is hereby cancelled and stricken from the record. "That mortgage is hereby reinstated and shall stand restored to secure the sumiof $6,900, with interest from May 24, 1929, less credits, if any, as if satisfaction had never been executed and the mortgage had never been satisfied of record. "That the reinstatement and restoration of the mortgage shall be without prejudice to any rights of purchasers or lem creditors that may have attached between December 14, 1934 and May 14, 1936.^ "That the plaintiff pay the costs of this proceeding: provided, however, and only on condition that the piaintifl first tender, in ample form, a release of the lien of said Renzo- Capo mortgage from the property described in deed of Ralph Renzo and Teresa Henze to Luigi and Rosa Capo, dated January 19, 1924 and a satisfaction acknowledging to have received payment and satisfaction in full of the mortgage and accompanying bond, if any, executed by Ralph and Teresa Renze to Allen C. Herwick, dated August 18, 1933." In the bill of equity, the mortga- gee sought to have stricken from the record a satisfaction allegedly by mistake, and to have the mortgage reinstated. Holding two mortgages of nearly equal amounts upon the same tract of land., the second of which was a lien also upon an adjacent tract, the plaintiff bank satisfied the latter mortgage in full, intending, as it avcn'ed, to satisfy neither, but to release from both a house and lot included in the mortgaged premises. In an order handed down, Judge W. Russell Carr directed the bill be dismissed at cost of the plaintiff in the action instituted by William L. Reynolds, administrator of the estate of Margaret Reynolds, late of Dunbar township, who died September 23, 1936. against Mary R. Maust and Katherine R. Reynolds, executric^s of the last will o£ Walker J. Reynolds, late of North Union township, who died October 24, 1936. In the statement of claim filed by the plaintiff, it was set forth that Margaret Reynolds by will of her husband, Orton F. Reynolds, who died December 3, 1928, had received $2,000 in government bonds and that these bonds were in custody of the late Walker J. Reynolds, a son, who had tailed to account for them during his lifetime. The defendants, filing answer to the charges, asserted the $2,000 worth of government bonds had been given to Walker J. Reynolds by his mother upon condition that he assume responsibility for her-funeral expenses. Will of George W. Lenox, Uniontown, who died January 21 in Buffalo, N. Y., was admitted to probate by Register Bruce F. Sterling on application of Alonzo Parks, 32 Chew street, this city. No valuation of the estate was given except to set forth it included a house and two lots in Lenox street and an undivided two- thirds interest in about 30 acres of land near Smithfleld. Will o£ Francis Seese, Connellsville, who died December 15, 1937, in Mercy Hospital, Pittsburgh, was probated on application of Agnes Seese. The real estate, estimated at $2,500, includes a house and lot at 799 Franklin avenue, Connellsville.

By the way, he said this zrethod has been in existence longer than most people suspect-since 1810. Angelic Bartender Buys Carnegie Hall (For a Night) to Give Girl a Send-Off Luuisu CurcltLx By Central Pre=a iN'£ W YOftK.--Louisa Corchia is only a poor Italian girl who wants to zing but she lias a bartender for an "angel" and he has hired Carnegie Hall for her first concert on February 20, juat three days before her eighteenth birthday.

Foster, Dickerson Run, was granted letters of administration on the estate of Henry D. Foster, Franklin township, who died December 4 in Connellsvilie Hospital. Personal assets were set at $10.000 and real estate estimated at '52,000, the latter including a farm of 25 acres on Virgin Run road in Franklin township. The county was given the "green light" to proceed with its suit to attempt to collect $14,270.87 from Sheriff Thomas R. Aubrey and the Maryland Casualty Company, in a court order dismissing a petition of the former county treasurer. It is claimed by the county that the sum represents two per cent commissions appropriated by Aubrey on collected delinquent county taxes during his term of office, February, 1932, to January; 1936. The sum, the county contends^ should have been turned into the county coffers. The former county treasurer and the casualty company, after the action was instituted by the county, petitioned the court for a rule on the county to show cause why the action should not be abated for lack of jurisdiction of the local court. The court said: "It is claimed that the defendants owe money to the plaintiffs. The cause of action is therefore one that the court inherently has jurisdiction to try. "It may be possible that the facts set up in the petition (by Aubrey) to abate and dismiss may constitute a bar to the plaintiff's (county 1 recovery." The order of Judge H. S. Dumbauld followed hearing on.the rule directed on the county to show why the action brought' against Aubrey should not be dismissed. Best Skin Doctors Are Light and Air It Never Has Chance to Breathe on Faces That Are Constantly Powdered and Painted By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. A VERY LARGE part of my correspondence from readers concerns inquiries about the skin. Young people especially are tortured by acne or pimples. Others, ask perennially about psoriasis. I wish I could answer these questions more satisfactorily. Some cases are easy to clear up, but the stubborn ones are very difficult, · With any skin, however, there are some simple rules of. hygiene and diet which do much, to keep a dear, glowing 1 appearance. Light and air are the best skin doctors. Some modern ladies keep their faces so constantly covered with paint and powder that the skin never has a chance to breathe. The whole skin should regularly be exposed to light and especially to air. And it needs more attention these winter days than in the summer. Necessary food constituents go to nourish the skin from within. The skin can be cleaned externally by a bath but it needs an internal bath also and certain foods are recognized for their nourishing effect on the skin. Eat Onions The onion is highly oraised by experts on this acount. Humble, and often despised, it is within reach of all. It is rich in pulphur, which the old wives think is a good skin food, as witness the sulphur and molasses tonic. We are "getting near the spring tonic season-and it is just as well to anticipate it. Not only sulphur, but iron is an important skin tonic. The foods which contain sulphur and iron are onions, sprouts, cabbage, celery, beetroot, radishes, endive, cauliflower and red cabbago. They are all best eaten raw. The following are rich in iron: Watercress, spinach, prunes, raisins, dried apricots, parsley, olives, Dr. Clendening will answer qnestions of general interest only, and then only through his column. dandelion leaves and roots, and all dark green vegetables. Spinach has been praised extravagantly and with justice. It ia u valuable tonic to the blood and skin. The simplest method of cooking is the best. After many rinsings to rid the leaves of grit and insect matter, simmer them slowly in their own juice for about ten minutes so that none of the value is lost in cooking. Turnip tops have the same virtues! and are cheaper. Also--Carrots Raw tomatoes and carrots are i also good skin tonics. Carrots should I not be peeled, because the bkin con- Uins a large percontucc of Vitamin B Carrots are valuable in case-, ot ronttipation. Nuts are also valuable footfe for the whole body as well as the akin. Their great food value is not often recognized and they should not be left out of a well balanced diet. Water should he drunk freely between meals by the potential skin invalid. Fruit juices are of the up- most importance in the beauty diet. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Mrs. F. B.: "Please recommend a good book to give a child to explain the facts of life." Answer: Step by Step in Sex Education by Ethel Hale Swift (The Macmillan Company, 1938). Of all the books of the kind this seems to me the best to recommend to a child. J. W. H.: "You have stated that phrenology is a bunk science. What about physiognomy?" Answer: I quote from the interesting-book by August A. Thomen, Don't Believe It, as follows: In 1924 G. U. Cleeton and F. B. Knight conducted a series of detailed experiments to ascertain the validity of this notion (Journal Applied'Psy- chology, June, 1924). They had uniform photographs made of ten college students whose mental capacities and abilities were definitely known. These photographs were given to 376 persons who were requested to arrange them in accordance with their estimates of th* subject's intelligence. The conclusions arrived at by Cleeton and Knight were as follows: (1) The persons making the selections could have done just as well with, their eyes closed as open. (2) Any successful selections were merely a matter of luck because those who did well on one set of ten did poorly on the next. (3) Women were no more efficient than men. (4) Older persons were no more efficient than the young. (5) The more intelligent showed no more ability than the less intelligent. (6) There was a slight tendency for both men and women to overestimate the intelligence of women from their photographs. (7) When tbe pictures are not uniform one's ability in such estimates is lessened^ (8) In Cadging two pictures, as in judging ten, one might as well close the eyes. (9) A group of judges working together did no better than a single judge. (10) One professional 'character reader and vocational expert' did no better than the average of the 376 persons who arranged th pictures."
