LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA i| '« Leap Year Is With Us Again, and Here's What Causes ft Keeps Seasons in Order, Gives Fair Maidens Their Chance. This Is lenp year 29 is the cause of It. nnd February lint the cause of February 29 dates hack to -10 R C. when the astronomers of Julius Caesar figured out thnt the solar year (the time It takes the earth to complete Its orbit around the sun) was 3G5 days and six hours. The six hours slumped them until they decided to add an extra day to every fourth year antl make that SGCth dny February 29. This Is "leap" year because the extra day causes the calendar to leap over n day of the week after February 29. Ordinarily the calendar rotates just, one day because 305 is one over 52 seven day weeks. Thus, March 1 fell on Friday last year, but will fall on Sunday Instead of Saturday this year. Pope Suppresses Ten Days. The Julian astronomers didn't have the thins down pat. however, for the solar year is actually _300 davs, 5 hours, -IS minutes and -\~i.~i\ seconds. By Hie time I'ope Ciregory XIII decided to act in 1.V32 A. D. the dates of the year had shifted 10 days out of season. To correct this I'ope Gregory ordered that October fi, V>82, be made October ID, 1582. To take care of the discrepancy o;- curring thereafter Tope Gregory's astronomers decided that leap year should he omitted on every century year not divisible by 400. Leap year won't be siirpresscd again until 2100 A. D. Anyway, leap year has a more romantic aspect. By tradition, if not by practice, it is the time a woman can propose marriage to a man. The origin of this counter attack in the love suit is less satisfactorily explained than the Julian and Gregorian calendars. But apparently Margaret of Norway, who became (]iieen of Scotland, started the thing in 112SS A. D. by saying tiiere ought to bo a law. She decreed that during the leap years of her reign every "maydcn ladye of botlie highc and lowe estait shall hae liberte to bespeake ye man she likes." And if a bachelor didn't like taking the proponent to be his lawful "wyfe" he could be "mulcted" (fined) one pound or loss. Ills only "out" was to bo already engaged. Calendar Accepted Rapidly. The (Jregorinn calendar was accepted in Italy, Spain, and Portugal on the same day It was ordered In Home. In France it was accepted before the year wns ended and In 1583 by the Catholic states of Germany. The German I'rotestant states retained the Julian calendar until 1700 when Sweden and Denmark also changed to the Gregorian or "new style" calendar. Russia held to the Jiillan calendar until the soviet union was formed. In Great Britain the Julian calendar was abolished by the act of 1750. That same year saw the change in the British colonies In America. The birthday of George Washington, which 'was February 11 under the Julian calendar, became February 22 when tlio change occurred.—Chicago Tribune.

You see, Sammy is smart and he knows he Is smart. Under that pointed cap of his are some of the cleverest wits in all the Green Forest. Sammy seldom worries about himself because he feels quite able to take care of himself. But Sammy Jay was worrying now. He was worrying about Lightfoot the Deer. For two days he had been unable to find LIghtfoot r any trace of LIghtfoot. But he Id find plenty of hunters with ter- ible guns. It seemed to him that !iey were everywhere In the Green 'orest.

But the connection is unavoidable I And this Is one characteristic that we cannot attribute particularly to women! Thanks be for that. As we sit back and smile at the grown-up children who like above all else to say "I," we can smile with the ill-easing realization tluu they are not preponderantly of our own sex. There are so many ways of say- Ing "I" without actually using tin- word. All the dogmatic opinions, all the arbitrariness, all the "laying down the law" In this world Is merely another expression of the spirit of "I." The people who are always sure of themselves, sure that tlu-y are right, that they must be right, theirs L ET me be up at morning, And let me on my way, For, with so much to see, to do, Then who would long delay?

I hear the pulleys rumble, I hear the traffic roar, A hundred matters to be done And highways to explore.

Whenever He Had Found One o Them, He Had Screamed at the Top of His Voice. them he had screamed at the top of his voice to warn every on within hearing just where tha hunter was. Once a hunter ha lost his temper and shot at Sammy but Sammy had suspected tha something of the kind might hap pen and he had taken care to keep just out of reach. Sammy had known about the chasing of Lightfoot by the hounds. Everybody in the Green Forest had known it. You see, everybody had heard the voice of those hounds. Once LIghtfoot had passed right under the tree in which Sammy was Itting, and a few moments later he two hounds had passed with heir noses to the ground as they ollowed Llghtfoot's trail. That was he last Sammy had seen of Light' oot. , He had been able to savi; ..Ightfoot from the hunters, but he ouldn't save him from the hounds. The more Sammy thought things iver, the more he worried, "I am ifrald those hounds drove him out vhere a hunter could get a shot and ill him or else that they tired him •ut and killed him themselves," bought Sammy. . © T.

The goodness of the pbtted meats is, of course, first of all, In the meat, then In the proper pounding and preparation and seasoning. If carefully prepared Jind put away, these will keep for a long time and may be used for an occasional snack or an emergency dish. Potted Chicken. Take a cold roast chicken, rejecting the skin and sinews, chop fine and to every pint allow a half-cupful of chopped ham or tongue. Tut the bones of the fowl into a saucepan, add a pint of cold water and simmer until there Is half a pint of stock; strain and remove the fat. Pound the chicken, nnd ham or tongue to a smooth paste in a mortar with an old-fashioned pestle; this makes a smooth paste; or it may be put several times through the food chopper until fine. Then pound—the pounding makes the meat of the creamy consistency needed. Add a little of the broth, season with cayenne, nutmeg and n tablespoonful of butter. Put into small jars, press down and cover with a cloth, then cover the cloth with a flour and water paste.

Lesson for February 2 JESUS ENLISTS HELPERS LESSON TEXT—Luke 5.'1-11, 27 2s GOLDEN TEXT—They forsook nil and followed him.—Luke 6:11, PRIMARY TOPIC —Jeaus Some Helpers. JUNIOR TOPIC—Jesus and Fishermen.. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR! TOPIC—How Jesus Calls Us. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULTl TOPIC—Our Call to Serve Wluj Christ. The work of Jesus had now prol gressed far enough to make morel workers necessary. He, therefore,! called and trained the helpers need! ed. The spread of Christianity del pends upon the testimony of moil and women who have come into i experiential knowledge of Christ. I. Jesus Teaching by the Seasld (vv. 1-3). His fame was now so widespread! that the people pressed upon hlnl to hear the Word of God. The man! ner and matter of his teaching! gained the attention of the people! for lie taught as one having author^ ity and not as the Scribes. The peo-jj pie came to hear the Word of Got( It is true today that people will! flock to hear the preaching of Word of God. The people will no| flock to hear the preacher discourse on politics, literature, current events and human philosophy. These pei pie were hearing the living y expounding the written Word. II. The Mighty Draught of Fishei| (vv. 4-7). Before these disciples were caUei Into the Lord's service, It wns ne essary that, in a most concrete • they be shown the wisdom and po\v| er of Jesus Christ. 1. Christ's command (v. 4), was to launch out Into the deep i let down their nets for a draught o fishes. It was necessary for tliei to learn that if fish were to caught they must cast their n where the fish were. 2. The disciples' ' hesitant obedil ence (v. 5). Peter as spokesman esf plained that they had a night < disheartening failure. They ha>] given themselves to a whole nig of exhausting toil, with no success^ While they acknowledged their I ure and unwillingness to contlnmS on the ground of their own jndg| ment, they expressed willingness tc| proceed on a new ground of namely, "At thy word." Happy : they who are willing to go fort with unfaltering courage, on ground of Christ's commandment. 3. Reward for obedience (vv. i 7). By Jesus' guidance they \vei able to take such a draught of flslitj that their nets broke and the boail were In danger of sinking. Abuq dant success will crown the effort of the disciples who render ImplM obedience to the commands of I Lord Jesus' Christ. III. The Disciples Called to Hljhj er Service (vv. S-ll). 1. The effect of the miracle the disciples (vv. 8-10).

Take out, remove the cloth, cover with melted butter, then tie over a paper moistened with egg white and set away to keep In a cool place until wanted. This will keep for months, and makes a fine hot-weather dish. This will be a good way to take care of extra chicken at any time. Fresh beef tongue, cold roast veal, boiled or 'roast mutton, ham and smoked tongue are all most tasty treated in this way. © Western Newspaper Union. 1)11 this entertaining trick, you require an emptied book of paper mutches. In mysterious fashion you set the match pack on end and release it. Presto 1 The match pack does a complete somersault along the table. You pick it up, set it down and It repeats Its acrobatic stunt. Other people try It; but somehow the trick falls to work for them. To begin with, you must bend the match pack to make It concave at the front. People observe this fact aad they think they know the secret. But they Invariably neglect to notice the most Important part of the trick. Always stand the match pack upside down and let It roll backward. Other people, trying to duplicate your stunt, will naturally set the pack right side up. From that position, It will not do the double roll. WNU Service.
