Fairy Tale ICEBERGS The Golf Stream lady was talking to David who Imd just met her on big adventures through the Living Map. ft was the map that had come to life and It was possible for David to Journey all over the western hemisphere In this way and meet all sorts f t Interesting map people. She had been telling David how bard the Icebergs were, but slie hod ·old, too, how much the polnr bears loved them and what friends they ·were of -the polar bears. "Still whea I wander my wnrm, ·nmmery wandering walk and I get ·up toward the cold of those Icebergs X cannot do anything with them-nothing at alt. "Nothing would move them to pity. I've tried, I try all the time, but I can do nothing with them. "I go there, as I say, and their terrific cold--oh David, If you've aever felt the cold of un Iceberg you don't know what cold IB--Is too much. "It's BO cold that you cnn't believe it I Ton simply can't believe It "The cold of the Icebergs comes to me and 1 try to withstand It, but I cnn't "I become crazed by It My mind la horribly confused. I am In a haze --I'm In a fog. I don't know whot Tm doing. "And then come up those grent engulfing fugs that are to be foand Th» Polar Bears' Friends. there--fogs so dense that you feel ns though- you were wrapped In great, mighty, thick, dark blankets of fog iin(I that .you were never to see light again. "You feel as though you couldn't ppt through that thickness, and oh, how you do want to get through. "1 cun't stand the icebergs. They hnve beaten me, everjr time, Duvld. Of course I feel half responsible for those fogs. "It Is the cold of the Icebergs and the warmth from me arguing together tlmt m:ike the fogs. "Then I turn aside. "But they tell me 1 do so much good on tho other side of the Atlantic, that If It weren't for me much of England would he as bare as Labrador, as they're In the same latitude, and that's pretty bare and bleak, my friend. "Ah yes. It Is different here. But I Jove my chances for helping and I have a number of them. "Of course sometimes I don't do much--I don't help those parts of the world you've been visiting--It's not. necessary, and I don't do the very same thing by every place I go. "But I have a worm Influence over Scnndlnnvlo, for example. Were It not for rue thcrc'd be no ntce country for the Scandinavians. There even might not Ie nny Scandinavians. "I da more, they tell me, to warm up the poor old Arctic than even the Sun. "Oh, I nm very contented to be a great, warm, warm stream. I'm a kind of an ocean farmer--a farmer as I help countries cultivate the soil, aud an ocean farmer as my farm Is a long, long river bed In the ocean. "But those Icehergs. David I They're too much for met" Sevea-!u-On» Word Believe It or not, here Is a clever poser both RIpley and Hlx missed, strange us It may seem. What word .of only sis letters contalas exactly six words within Itself, without transposing a single letter? Before reading on for the answer or "seven-Inone" word--Stop I Pnt on your thinking cap and, If you care to, get out your dictionary and make a thorough search. If you searched loag enough perhaps you would discover that this queer word Is the simple little word "heroin." And the six words contained herein are: He, Her, Here, Ere, Rein end In. At any rate, it Is an excellent poser to ask your friends.--The Pathfinder. Spring Sign* The man was playing alone. Two boys kept following him around the course. At the ninth hole, he turned to the boys and said: "You'll aever Ic:irn to play watching me." , "We're not watchiag you," said one of tho boys. "We're going fishing as soon as you dig up some more worms." Favorite Poor I Teacher--If you subtract 234 from 1£,S9G. what Is the difference? Army Jr.--Now you're talking, tfuchor; who cares?--Service Mag*- ilue. Chicago can claim credit for a famous Mark Twain story that has been, going the rounds for years and Is fltlll good. Twain was one of the more or les« distinguished persons present In Haverly's theater here on th« evening of. November 12, 1879, when General nrant, fresh from bis trip around the world, sat through several boors of speeches In his bonor. This person and that was called for hy the chairman and by the audience, and finally a shout went op for Mark Twain. The general Indicated that be would like to bear the writer, and Clemens wns.perauaded to get op. After a few bantering remarks, b« excused himself with the remark that: ·q never could make a good Impromptu speech wlthoot several bonrs to neonaza IL"--ChlcgO Evening Post l»y Mrvin -JF. Cot»l» Both Sides of the Proposition r\O\VN In the Black Patch along the *-* line between west Kentucky and west Tennessee where the heavy dark tobaccos nre grown, a prominent plant 1 er grew dissatisfied with the market- Ing arrangements. It seemed to him he was not getting a fair deal from same of the large European buyers nnd frum the American shippers who acted ns the middlemen. He decided to make a private Inquiry as to conditions. For his emissary In this matter be chose his overseer or crop-manager. The latter was an expert In making the earth yield of Its bounty nnd regarding the curing and packing of the weed he had no superior In the South. Hut he Inid never been further away from home than Louisville and bad nt-ver seen a larger city than Louisville. Trusting, however, to the man's native shrewdness the planter put him on the tniln with Instructions to go to New York, conduct a personal In- vestlgutlon aud report back by telegraph. Upon his arrival the visitor went direct to one of the larger docks on the North river where several ships were being loaded with the product of the Blnck Patch for shipment abroad. Next he visited a warehouse where tobacco for domestic consumption was stored and Immediately sent his principal this telegram: "Better sell this year's trap for any price you can get I've done seen more tobucco nlreudy than the whole world can use In the uext twelve 'mouths." After this he took n stroll uptown. When he reached Broadway nnd Fortieth street he hunted up another tele graph office nnd wired his employer as follows: "Disregard flrst message. Hold nil rhe tohncco you've got There's enough folks In this town atone to chaw tt nil up Inside of the next twenty-four lion re." Facts and Figures on Your Telephone By EDWIN F. HILL Prophecies don't always coma true. There are exceptions to tha rule. For example, Alexander Graham Boll, fifty- four years ago--just ! two years, after be had Invented the telephone -- described the Instrument as "an electrical contrivance ' for reproducing in distant places the tones and Edwin F. Hill articulations of a speaker's voice, so that a conversation can be carried on by word-of-mouth between persons in different rooms, different streets, or in different towns." "I believe," 1 ho said, "In the future wires will unite the bead offices of telephone companies In different cities and a man in one part of the country may communicate by word-of-mouth with another. In a distant place." * Telephone conversations may now be held between about .forty leading countries of the world, which are served by 32,500,000 telephones, which Is approximately 92 per cent of the total number in the world. Only recently transoceanic radio telephone service has crossed the Pacific to the Hawaiian Islands. The first conversation was made by Secretary of the Interior Ray Lynian Wilbur from his office In Washington to Governor Lawrence M. Judd of the islands. A few days previously Secretary of State Henry L. Stlmson conversed with the president of Brazil at Rio de Janeiro, and Assistant Secretory of State William R. Castle spoke with state authorities In Bermuda.* These extensions of foreign telephone service further emphasize the prophecy of Dr. Bell, who had the faith that the telephone would become a great Instrument of service not only to people within a city or community, but to the whole world. Recent events prove that this prophecy Is becoming -a true realization more and more every The Heritage American Room No. 2--Treatment of the Walls By CABL UECK ConaulUne Ait Director, JJIgcIow Weavers IN ANT well appointed room noth- * Ing la more Important than tho background furnished by tho wall. Accordingly, tho first step In the alteration of our typical room IB tho ro- docoratlon of tho wall to provide a now background for tho furnishings. Draperies, wallpaper, woodwork--all must ba considered In the rejuvenation of this room. Among the most Important changes tho valances which decrease tho height of tho room, so we remove this molding entirely. A small-figured wallpaper lo a light tone replaces the old room's monotonous dark yellowish tan paper. Thesa Email-figured papers glvo a room an essential feeling of airiness, while wallpapers full of largo figures have (i tendency to make rooma appear smaller. Another Important touch In the Modern draperies and wallpaper and the arrangement of pictures have an Important Influence on tha appearance of a room as shown above. we make Is the eubatltutlon of short, tled-back draperies, topped with valances, for the long, straight draperies of the old room. The horizontal lines of the valancca have a tendency to lower the celling, giving- better proportion to the room, while tho vertical lines of the old draperies had exaggerated the room's height. For the sake of Interest in the window treatment, flowered chlatz supplants the dark, self-figured damask in the old room. With glass curtains of peach, this flowered chintz Is used In draperies and valances. The new draperies hang- only to the bottom of the wooden apron under the sill, with the glass curtains end- Ing- a quarter of an Inch above the fllll. Woodwork Repainted When we come to the dark varnished woodwork wo find that tho wonderful Improvement c a n he worked here by repainting It In a light Ivory, efeg-shell finish. The picture molding that ran around the walls of the room a foot bolow the celling la rendered unnecessary by treatment of walls Is the placing of pictures. In addition to their decorative function, pictures have the effect of rounding out a grouping of furniture against tho wall. In our Heritage American room we place two small pictures between tha windows and right abovo tho sofa, helping to tlo pictures between the windows. Pictures at Eye Level To avoid any stairstepping, which IB a common mistake, we hang our pictures one directly above the other. A picture should be hung so that its center is very slightly above eye level. With a group of two small pictures, apply this rule to the lower one and place tho other right abovo It. At tho right of our room wo build up on Interesting wall group consist- Ing of the little pot of Ivy with two pictures on either side. The Ivy, hanging downward toward tho small drop leaf table, ties the table and tho accessories on It to the wall. With our walls taken caro of wo are now ready to consider our color scheme. Our next article wlil treat of color In tho room.
