Moby an Prospering Industry A survey of the airplane industry in 1031 indicates that it withstood hard times about as well as any industry in the nation, despite the fact that only_ §49,000,000 worth of airplanes were built us compared with planes worth twice that much in 1029. To begin with, all the slifrs that were built last year were sold-—which was 'decidedly not the case of 1020, Prod net ion was off, hut it -was accurately geared to consumption, which is the.important, thing. lAirlhermoro, the excess stocks built up in 3929 were largely disposed of. •• In addition, the air transport busi- A collector of rare books paid §1070 tlie other day in New York for a copy of an old book entitled "The Nar. rative of the Shipwreck of the Whale- ship K-:s(;x, of Nantucket"; and the inture.stiiitf thing about it is the fact that this .lK>ok once was owned by Herman .Melville and .seems lo have contained the original thread upon which .Melville's giwit novel, "Moby Dick," iras hung. This book told huw the ship Essex, about a century ago, was rammed and sunk by a huge sperm whale "oil' (lit- coa.-.t of Chile, and bow the crew made its -way (o shore, 1000 miles away, in small boats. If you've read your "Moby Dick" — and if you haven't you've mi.ssed something — you'll remember Ibat something like that was the climax of the novel, .'when Moby Dick, the while whale, rammed Captain. Allah's ship and sent it to the bottom with all hands. This business of digging back lo see where «u author "got his idea" is always interesting. But the striking tiling about it is tho way it proves that the actual skeleton of the plot is the least important thing about a book. Old Skipper Owen Chase, who wrote this story of the shipwreck, built up a book on the yarn of a whale that .sank a ship, and so did Jlclvillc— but what a difference! The one book was forgotten generations ago, by everyone except Melville; the other is one of the masterpieces of American literature. With one writer the yarn was just, a yarn, exciting but unimportant; with the other it became the basis for a deep, moving tale in which humanity's spiritual adveuturings are . summed up.. One is reminded of tho way Conrad wrote "Nciitromo" after reading in a Central American newspaixn- a brief account of how a native decamped with a lighter full of bar silver. There again an insignificant little anecdote was expanded into a book of universal significance. And that is what the creative artist is for; to see, in incidents that the rest of us wwilit not think about twice, the chance to reveal the universe to us. The basis of his plot may be interesting, but it is unimportant. It is what he does with it that counts. — Crucu Caltoir: The Texas woman who "doesn't know the difference between a gin fta and n hlghb.ill," Imt who is a wet candidate for congress, must have been afraid she'd never Uriel out under Llie Volstead act.

The first teeth com e in at the front of the mouth between the nflh and eighth months, as a rule If they happen,- to be a little early,' or late, there Is no cause lor worry. The next teeth come in between the eighth ana tenth months, and the others about the time of the first birthday. Until the first teeth appear, the mouth ol the child does well If let alone. After the first teeth appear, the gums and teeth may be wiped dally, with a soft clean cloth dipped in water to which a little salt ha; been-added. It Is -well to b e exceedingly gentle. •" About the eighteenth month ..
