And the women folk have recommended treatment varying from outright shooting of the snorer to separate bedrooms. But the other day a correspondent said the thing to do wa» to find the cause and she cited the scientific analysis she credited to her father "The psychological perifery of the perimeter requires that the larynx, the glottis and the epilot- tis shall have all'the commitments of the atmosphere. That causes the nasal protuberances to prevaricate. In that way the whizzlemagrlgary of the candelabrium has to explo- diate through the hydrostatics of the proboscis, thus prodciing a snore, snort or a gurgle."

This little girl wandered into the corridor where she saw a red lever on the wall. Half and hour later, the firemen had traced the false alarm. Nurses, doctors and staff workers, who had scrombled to evacuation stations throughout the hospital, went back to their normal activities. And the 5-year-old resumed her wait. ^Regular Admission—Pius lOc for Glasses Authorized Distributor lor LUZIER'S COSMETICS ALLEEN F.
